i have feels so you get to have them too


“Feminism is not here to dictate to you. It’s not prescriptive, it’s not dogmatic. All we are here to do is give you a choice. If you want to run for Prime Minister, you can. If you don’t, that’s wonderful, too. Shave your armpits, don’t shave them, wear flats one day, heels the next. These things are so irrelevant and surface to what it is all really about, and I wish people wouldn’t get caught up in that. We want to empower women to do exactly what they want, to be true to themselves, to have the opportunities to develop. Women should feel free.

The kind of literature that fan fiction is did not spring fully formed into being in the 1960s and 70s, though some journalists still seem to think so. Throughout this book I have been stressing the link, in literary terms, between fan fiction and any other fiction based on a shared canon […]. It is clear from the comments of fan fiction writers like Ika and Belatrix Carter that one major attraction of this genre for writers is the sense of a complicit audience who already share much information with the writer and can be relied on to pick up ironies or allusions without having them spelled out. Writing based on the canons of myth and folklore can do this too, though as Belatrix Carter pointed out in chapter 7, these canons have been so extensively used for so long it is becoming harder to do anything with them that feels original.

But there is another point, implied in Ika’s remark in chapter 2 - ‘What I like about fan fiction is that you can still get that very highly trained audience that can understand very, very complex and allusive things.’ The use of 'still’ alludes to the undoubted fact that for the traditional canons of myth, Bible, history, and folklore, this “very highly trained” audience is not as reliable as it once was, because the canon information is not as widely shared as it used to be. […] a writer can no longer allude to Lazarus, Circe or Alexander and be reasonably sure that most of his readers have in their heads the thoughts, stories or images for which he was aiming. The human need for heroes and archetypes does not go away, but their faces change with time, and one avatar takes the place of another. Ika’s point is a shrewd one: in an age of fragmented rather than shared cultures the fan fiction audience is unusual in having as thorough a knowledge of its particularly shared canon as a Bible-reading or classically educated audience once did.

I’m sorry that I have to say this, but please don’t ask other blogs to ask Jack something or to reblog something just so Jack can see it.  I’ve had a lot of people come to me recently asking me to do things because they think Jack will pay more attention to me than them, and I’m sure other blogs on here have had that same problem.

I love you guys, and I want you to get the chance to interact with Jack too, but asking me to get ahold of Jack isn’t polite.  It feels like you’re using me.  And also, Jack responds to anyone if he sees it.  He doesn’t pick favorites, and he doesn’t exclude “non-popular” blogs.  If you post a question in the tag or send it to him, there’s a good chance he will see it.  And if not, maybe try again another time.  Don’t spam it, but also don’t use blogs that you think are “more popular” to get Jack’s attention.

tl;dr, don’t use people to get to Jack. Jack tries to get to everyone, but sometimes he can’t.  Be respectful of that. :)

I want Kent and Tater that both have huge crushes on each other, who know that their feelings are requited, but who are too stubborn to make the first move.

Like every time they see each other the flirting is so instense that the rookies get embarrassed and have to leave.

When Jack asks them why they won’t ask the other out, Kent tells him “I like making him work for it. If he wants a piece of me, he’s gonna have to do something about it.”

Tater responds “Kent is too cocky. Need to knock him down a peg. He is needing to admit what he wants.”

So they continue to dance around each other, until a party at Jack’s one weekend when the Aces are playing in Boston. Tater finds Kent leaning against a wall in the hallway, nursing his drink and looking contemplative.

“Kenny, why so sad looking? Aces lose again? Or you just disappointed I am not in your bed?” Kent grins at that, looking up at Tater with those bright eyes that just get him every time.

“No, just wondering when you’re gonna get the courage to wine and dine me like you know you want to.”

“Am ready to do so much more than that, am just waiting for you to give word.” Tater is, he really is, but he’s not ready to give up on this game yet.

Kent sighs and look down at his drink, somwthing Tater was not expecting. “Why do we do this, Alexei?” Tater is surprised, and it takes him a moment before he can answer.

“Am liking chasing you, Kenny.” Tater tries to keep the conversation flirty, but the air has changed, and he’s not sure what to do. Kent looks back at him intensely, and Tater feels naked.

“I’m done with games, Alexei. I think it’s time I let myself have something that I deserve.” Tater is sure that Kent is ending this thing they have, that he’s getting thown aside so Kent can chase a real relationship, and Tater is ready to leave now. He wants to go home and bury himself in his blankets and never come out.

Tater is so buried in his thoughts that he nearly falls over when Kent pulls him down into a rough, searing kiss that leave him a little lightheaded and yearning for more.

Suddenly Tater’s hands are on Kent’s waist, pulling him in closer, and Kent’s hands are burying themselves in his hair, and he’s pressing Kent against the wall like he’s afraid Kent might slip away. One of Kent’s legs is in between his own, pressing up into him, and Tater’s whole body is on fire.

Kent’s mouth has moved to his neck, and Tater is gasping into Kent’s hair, breathing in smell of him. He pulls Kent back up to kiss his mouth, murmuring “Go on date with me, real one”

In between kisses Kent laughs softly. “Thought you’d never ask”

it just hit me that seventeen are consistently winning awards now like they are honestly truly rising. all of their hard work is being acknowledged and they have a lot of fans voting for them and the public isn’t even questioning it because they are growing fond of the boys too. I’m so proud of them and I’m trying to not be an emotional mess at 6am but I just !!!! it’s nice to see their faces light up with genuine shock every time their name gets called at award shows bc they still doubt their success and don’t anticipate their wins you know? i want them to always have that feeling of happiness and recognition bc they deserve it. so, so much

“Hey, let’s get a coffee after this!”, Kim suggested, picking up a bunch of flyers and dropping them down a stairwell. You watched them sail to the ground one by one, feeling their flowing movements tickle your mind. “I can’t, I have a lecture.”

“Come on!”, she groaned and waving a You only live once flyer in front of your face. “You hate that class. And the professor and the book.”

“That doesn’t mean I don’t have to go.” Silence. “No offence, but how the hell are we even friends? Like, how have we become acquainted?”, Kim asked. “Opposites attract.” “Which is why your soul mate is going to be the most outgoing party person you have ever met!”, she said, leaning against the rail. “You should meet him half way. If he’s a party person, you will meet him at a party. Which means that you have to attend a party. Ideally the Christmas Festival tomorrow night.”

“If you want me to come, you could just ask.”, you replied and put the pile of books you were carrying onto the windowsill next to you. “You wouldn’t come.” “Well, I am here, helping you carry out invitations to some kind of drug convention.” “Good point.” “I know.”

I laughed, I got butterflies, I screamed when Isak opened the door…and then my computer crashed. Even’s presence is just too much! Imagine how Isak feels?

But seriously, the boys were so cute and supportive. I once again find myself envying a fictional character. What the hell is my life?(Altho him kicking them out was fugging hilarious).

And I’m so proud of both Isak and Even for taking the plunge, so to speak. They both manned up today, both took a risk.

When Isak grabbed him, I screeched, but then I was like “Y’all need to talk, tho” and then I screeched again.

I usually prefer to clear the air and get misunderstandings and hurt feelings out of the way before moving onto more pleasurable things but you know what? Let them have their moment. It’s beautiful and it’s been a long time coming. The talking will have its moment too. It must.

i felt like I had to get this out of my system. There is nothing beautiful or fun or cute or romantic or poetic about borderline personality disorder or having bpd. It is a nightmare. It is tiring. It is tiring having to rely on everyone else for your own validation because you’re so emotionally and mentally broken to do it yourself. It is tiring watching people leave you because you push them away because that is a symptom of your disorder. It is tiring getting attached too quickly and then getting unattached at the same rate. It is tiring feeling like no one will love you because you’re “too much to handle”. It is tiring feeling like you want to die and not knowing if it’s for real half the time. It is tiring having a personality/mood disorder. It’s not romantic or poetic. It is goddamn exhausting. Try living with it everyday. It tears you apart.


You are a bright, capable, reasonably mature woman. You can handle the toughest situations with grace or force as required.

But for the love of God, you have got to learn how to curse.

You did study at the feet of a master, remember? Or mistress, if we’re going to get all gendered about it. More in a week than your entire life, that’s a well you should have been drawing from. Snapper deserves your derision (and a sharp dose of mine) now and then, but you’ll never get catharsis from being so goddamned polite all the time. When I told you to find the anger behind the anger, that’s not the end of the process.

You have to express it, too.

For example, your feelings about how close I am to Susan these days. I would see how you ran interference as my assistant, keeping everyone out of my orbit unless I specifically requested them. I always assumed that was to keep me happy and undisturbed by morons, but now I’m not so sure of the purity of your motivations. Does Kara Danvers not know how to share?

Let it out, Kara. Why hold back? I never do, and it’s one of the cornerstones of my success.

Just to test your evolution in this regard, I should keep you informed that in the past few days I’ve had some very productive training sessions with Susan - at my home here in DC - and she’s been having breakfast with me each morning she’s on duty, at my request. I took one look at her sad smoothie-to-go, and told her that no amount of rippling abs were worth something so tragic-looking. She informs me that my chef makes a mean egg-white omelet.

I don’t think you have much room to talk about an action movie life, incidentally. When it comes to Carter, you don’t have to worry. As his mother I won’t let you or anyone else put him in danger, but a gentle reminder here and there can’t hurt. You’ll get better at juggling this. You have at everything else.

Yours (despite your most paranoid assumptions),

The dump is a great place to meet girls!

Look at these two. Look at them. These adorable dorks. It feels good to draw them, especially Alphys since I don’t draw her enough. They’ll get their time in the comics though. 

We will have to close accepting drawing requests now. We only got a day left of FeelGoodWeek and still have a little list of requests we gotta finish so we can get back to making the next comics. Thank you guys for sending in all these asks though! They have really helped improve our week and gave us excuses to draw all these nerds. We hoped they have helped you all in some way, even if it’s small, too. 

We got a bit more to release so keep an eye out for them! Might have to post them after tomorrow too but they will all get done. No worries.

Some days I work “real” work days. How. In. The. Hell did I used to do this five days a week!? 9 hours plus a workout and it was pizza for dinner. I have a massive project for MLK Day and part of it is outdoors. Of course, there’s a 90% chance of rain, so today was mostly spent contingency planning. 😳 I’m feeling ready now, though! And, talking to the principal and vice principal of the school where the project is taking place was so awesome. I get to feel like Santa Claus all year with my job, so that’s pretty cool. 😉 It’s worth a few long days!

I have a contact at the local shredding/recycling place who gives me boxes whenever I need them for work (which is often). Banker boxes are actually pretty expensive if you have to buy them, and he’ll even have his guys deliver them to me if I’m too busy to pick them up. Today, I went and got a whole van load full and the guys were so awesome! I sent them a delivery of Tiff’s Treats cookies and getting a text of their smiling faces in the middle of a meeting this afternoon totally made my day. Their boss, my contact, then sent me an email saying that “their smiles were priceless. People don’t typically recognize our drivers and warehouse staff, so I appreciate you acknowledging their efforts.” 😁 Made. My. Day. Don’t for one second think I’m really all that nice. I get more joy out of things like that than anyone. It’s just as much, if not more, for me! Life is just better when you’re on the lookout for ways to spread happiness and appreciation.

I’m pretty tired today, but my heart is happy! ❤


Honoka-san, you said that if you get too close to others, you have to share your heart with them… That you have to reveal yourself to them, right? That’s what I want to do. I don’t want to be the only one who doesn’t feel anything. But I don’t think that means we should be connected through a system. I want to really feel pain, for my friends, too. So… I don’t… want to forget anymore…

anonymous asked:

How did you find the transition from school to uni? I've just applied and I'm worrying about living on my own and missing my family. I don't feel old very grown up and was wondering if you had any tips on becoming more independent and mature?

Hi! For me it wasn’t too difficult but I didn’t have to move out to attend university so I feel I’ve had a much simpler transition than some other people and what you will have. I totally get what you mean about not feeling old though! Just a tip with your family, make the effort to arrange a day and time to ring home maybe once or twice a week! Include them in your schedule so you don’t forget to update them on how you’re doing! Here are a few things that might help:

RFA reactions to MC’s tattoos

So I have a couple small tattoos, and I was thinking of how the RFA would react to MC having tattoos as well!

Do you guys have any tattoos? Please feel free to comment, I’d love to hear about them too~


  • “OMG MC you have tattoos?! I have one too!”
  • You are speechless. Yoosung is the last person you would expect to get a tattoo.
  • He pulls up his shirt and shows it to you.
  • It’s a tattoo of Rika. On his ribs. 
  • ^ I actually saw this on Yoosung’s tumblr account! (not sure if official account but yeah)
  • He proceeds to tell you how special Rika was to him. Although you’ve already heard it a million times.
  • He shares with you all his special memories with her. He just wants you to know Rika like he did.
  • He tells you that getting the tattoo wasn’t painful at all. He’s a brave man okay?! What’s pain to a manly man like him?! (you low key didn’t believe him lolol)
  • You later find out from Zen that Yoosung started crying like a baby the very moment the needle touched his skin, and continued crying for like 15 minutes after it was done.
  • But it’s okay because you still love Yoosung for the little sensitive baby he is.


  • It was the first time the both of you were having sexy time *wink wink*
  • Being the beast he is, he practically rips off your shirt.
  • He sees your tattoo and freezes.
  • Zen is legit SHOOK.
  • “Is that a tattoo?! ON YOUR CHEST?!”
  • You tell him that you have a couple more on your back and he moves at the speed of light to check them out.
  • You’re so confused. Does he hate them?? To be honest, you thought Zen would be the one person in RFA who had tattoos considering his past with the motorcycle gang.
  • You burst out laughing. So that was why his reaction was so big.
  • You love it when Zen gets all jealous and possessive like this.
  • He was pouting so hard lol.
  • You quickly kissed his cute pouty lips and promised that next time he would be the only one who got to see you topless.


  • You were pretty nervous showing Jumin your tattoos.
  • You knew he was a conservative person, and you were worried that he would disapprove of them.
  • Of course, you knew that he wouldn’t do anything crazy like leave you or make you remove them, but still, you were anxious.
  • After seeing your tattoos, he was silent for awhile. 
  • “I didn’t expect you to have tattoos, but I like them.”
  • You were SO relieved. That was why you loved Jumin so much. He was always surprising you with his actions and you were constantly learning new things about him.
  • He ran his fingers gently across your tattoos, curious about how they felt, whether or not they felt smooth like the other parts of your skin. 
  • “Do they have any special meaning? I’d like to know.”
  • You proceeded to explain your tattoos in detail one by one - what it meant, who you went to get them with, when you got them.
  • It was slightly embarrassing to tell Jumin about that one trashy, basic af tattoo you got when you were 17 though.
  • Jumin listened to you ramble on about them for ages, never losing attention.
  • After you were done talking, he kissed you and said “MC, you truly are a unique person. Thank you for trusting me and sharing your stories with me. I love you.”


  • “WHOA MC. You’re so cool!”
  • “You must be a really wild person!”
  • He is so impressed with them lolol. 
  • You looked at him amusedly as he started poking and prodding at your tattoos.
  • The next day, he dragged you along to a tattoo parlour.
  • To the tattoo artists’ dismay, Seven had NO IDEA what he was going to get.
  • “This about this: 707, DEFENDER OF JUSTICE! That’s a good tattoo!”
  • You rejected that idea, telling him it would be silly.
  • “How about a picture of DICKBUTT?! You know what it right?! Its my favourite meme!!”
  • OMG SEVEN PLEASE NO, you begged.
  • Finally, he decided to get an image of a cat typing on a computer.
  • Of course that’s the tattoo he would get, you thought to yourself.
  • In the end, the tattoo ended up looking sooo cute, you decided to get the same one too.
  • “We have matching tattoos now MC! Looks like you’re stuck with me forever!”

P.S: I didn’t do Jaehee’s reactions because I feel like Jumin’s and Jaehee’s reactions would be rather similar. PLUS I haven’t done Jaehee’s route yet, so I felt that I didn’t know her well enough yet!

You called me a mysterious soul,
but I never keep secrets from you.

You were the writer and I was your pen.
I told you everything and you guided me between the lines of your notebook of endless pages.

You never tell me about your sisters or mom, but I’ve told you everything about my dad.

I tell you about my heart and the way it beats when I get anxious and sad, or when I sleep.
You tell me about how creamy the ice cream is at your school.

We have each other. I know we have each other. I just hate feeling so one sided. Do you even know that? Will you ever? 

I will always love you, but not the way you want me too.

I’m sorry. I never meant to leave cracks in your heart.
(I can tell that’s where the shadows seep through. I can see them in your eyes.)

—  You are always here for me and I am grateful for that.
