i kinda feel like a badass

Notes about that Atomic Blonde trailer

-Charlize Theron is bisexual and her girlfriend is both hot and badass and another agent, shit you got my ass in the theater 😩

-Charlize Theron dresses and walks like a fucking queen I CANT

-Also she gets punched in the face and the fighting is LEGIT. It’s not some Scarlet Johansson dancing around dudes and never getting down and dirty, it’s some legit face bashing and getting bloodied up and fucked UP. I love it, Charlize wears it like an aesthetic I can’t get enough of

-James Mcavoy looks like a drug dealer, kinda like he looked in Split, and i get a sidekick feeling from him and i dig it

-the fucking song. Oh my god. That style.

k i loved Zootopia but can we maaaybe talk about the motherclucking designs in the Kung Fu Panda series, particularly the women? specifically tigress???

Like she totally reads as feminine and elegant but at the same time she’s completely buff and animal-shaped like the rest of the characters there aint a tiger titty or Fluff Cleavage™ in sight

And thats how the rest of the animals are treated too?! like the females and males of every species are pretty much shaped the same, besides the peacocks who obviously have males and females looking different. and then the third movie comes out and we’re treated to MEI MEI

she’s this crazy panda lady ribbon dancer who legit things she’s the hottest shit on planet earth and she is a total badass once she figures out how to use nunchucks. and like theres just so many beautiful and diverse designs for all these characters and I kinda feel like too many people praise this franchise just for its comedy when its got some killer artistry behind it as well. 

I pulled off my first 10 mile run in like….a while. My conclusions are as follows:

  • Deku getting his UA acceptance letter in episode 4 is the purest feel-good anime moment of 2016
  • Deku, Ochako, and Iida are the purest anime characters of 2k-forever
  • Bakugou getting slammed flat on his ass 2.03 seconds into the villain-vs.-hero battle with Deku is a highlight of Bakugou’s career
  • Ricochet by Starset is fucking badass and dramatically lip-syncing to it while running is a 10/10 would recommend
  • The gym parking lot smells kinda funny at 12:30 am
  • ow my legs
See You Next Summer

A super-quick Finaleversary fic. Thanks to Scribe for being willing to beta fics I toss at her with zero warning at the spur of the moment. Love to her, and to everyone I’ve met through Gravity Falls.

Ao3


The end of summer. 2012.

Candy and Grenda go back to Grenda’s place after seeing Mabel off. They’d planned a sleepover in advance, knowing that they’d need several hours of cuddling, cookie dough and playing dress up with Grenda’s lizard to ease the sting of saying goodbye. Candy sits up on Grenda’s shoulders, because they need Grendy to help themselves feel big and tough right now, and Grenda makes howling and roaring sounds for all she’s worth, but it’s still a sad day.

They pass Pacifica sitting out on the curb. She looks like she might be waiting for someone. Actually, by the way she’s sitting with her face in her hands, she looks like she might have been waiting for a while. Candy glances down at Grenda, and a look passes between them. Should they ask if something’s wrong? Somehow even after living through the end of the world, after seeing all social order turned upside down, it would still feel weird to go up to the most popular girl in school (the same girl who’s cut them up with cruel words more times than they can count) and ask if she’s all right.

Mabel would have done it. But Mabel isn’t there, and Candy and Grenda both badly want to get home to the blanket nest and stack of videos they know is waiting for them, so they walk on and leave Pacifica alone.

2013. The end of summer.

Pacifica isn’t exactly friends with Candy and Grenda. No, no, she’d never call them that. But, you know. Hanging out with them makes her look good by comparison.

The other day one of my friends whipped out his camera and we went around town taking pictures. And they’re beautiful!!!! They make me feel like a badass. But my first reaction to seeing these was “wow my arms look weird”. My arms are way way stronger than they’ve ever been in my entire life from pushing myself in my chair, and my über hyperextended joints can make for a kinda funky look. And they’re long, like wow long. I never noticed before because my legs are long too, but now they’re so atrophied that they look tiny and twiggy and my arms stand out even more. But why does it bother me?? These arms can lift me up to transfer, can push me through life even with legs that don’t cooperate. They can lift my favorite cousin onto my lap and push us around the house so fast that she screeches with joy. They sublux and dislocate and keep on going. So why should I care that they don’t look like what I’ve been told they should my entire life. My search for the “perfect” body nearly killed me, why in the world would I want arms that can’t work a drill press or throw my cousins in the air or take me through life? My arms are badass, and so am I.

I saw this post this morning and it’s been bugging me but I didn’t want to be an ass and add onto the post so like, here are my thoughts feel free to ignore this ain’t supposed to be an attack so i’m sorry if it comes across that way


Piper McLean is a brilliant character. She’s brave and kind and powerful. She’s a badass female character and she’s a daughter of Aphrodite and that’s great. Riordan did a great job. Except he kinda didn’t. He created and wrote Piper McLean as a sore thumb among her siblings, she stands out because of how different she is due to these qualities.

In a world where so many girls - myself included - often grow up with some level of internalised misogyny, thinking that femininity and beauty can’t go hand in hand with strength and bravery and being a feminist, it would have been wonderful to see Riordan disprove that. It would have been wonderful to see him write sons and daughters of Aphrodite who believe in love and embrace their own beauty and be warriors alongside the other campers. It would have been wonderful to see Riordan prove that kids of Aphrodite /are/ so much more than girly, gossiping airheads. But he didn’t. He used them as a device to show that Piper isn’t /like other girls// while giving them very little substance or character.

And while I’m at it, although Piper learned to embrace and promote love and relationships as important, she still dismisses her siblings’ interest in the more superficial aspects of being a child of Aphrodite which makes it difficult to accept that she disproves that stereotype. Piper McLean is a great character, but she doesn’t disprove any stereotypes with regards to Aphrodite kids, if anything she embeds them even further.

anonymous asked:

when did you graduate and what was your major? Kinda stumped on what i want to study and what i wanna do with my life and any insight from my badass bi role model is appreciated!

honestly hon, when i realized i didn’t have to rush to finish school my life became less stressful. i have a degree but i’m still in school on my way to a Master’s in Psychology! When i first entered Uni and saw classmates of all ages is when it really hit me that you are never too old to get a degree. America likes to make you feel worthless for not making the absolute most of every second you have, but you gotta live life your own way. I never take full semesters because I have a life to live and a mental health to safeguard so taking it slow has been the best thing for me. Best of luck!

BTS reaction: you getting a facial piercing

Thank you for requesting, and sorry that it took me this long! xx


Jin/Kim Seokjin: 

I don’t think he is very into piercings, except for earrings. It might depend though. Like, I’m pretty sure he’d be completely fine with a small gem on your nose wing, but all other piercings would probably not be his cup of tea. And if it was something that he thought was a bit extreme, like a septum, bridge, or dimple, he would probably try to talk you out of it tbh. So, it really depends on what kind of piercing.

Suga/Min Yoongi: 

Again, it depends on what kind of piercing. But his reaction would be vastly different from Jin’s. If it’s a piercing he approves of, he’ll love it and really compliment you on it. If it is a piercing he doesn’t really like, he might tell you that it looks cool, but not mention it more than that. He wouldn’t mind though.

J-Hope/Jung Hoseok: 

His first reaction would probably be to ask you about the pain, and how to make sure it doesn’t get infected, rather than the piercing itself. And then he’d be more like Jin. A lot of piercings aren’t really to his liking. But, I think that he wouldn’t try to change your mind. I feel like he’s more the type to tell you that it wouldn’t have been his first choice, but that you should keep it if you liked it.

Rap Monster/Kim Namjoon: 

He’d honestly just think it looks badass and, depending on the piercing, quite sexy. He would definitely compliment you on it, doesn’t matter what piercing you got. He doesn’t care, as long as you like it and it doesn’t get infected.

Originally posted by rapnamu


Jimin/Park Jimin: 

I feel like he is very similar to Jin. Jimin probably prefers cute and innocent people, and piercings wouldn’t really go with that image. But, I feel like he’s too sweet to tell you to get rid of it, unless it’s something he really doesn’t think suits you. And, he’d probably come around eventually if you just give him some time to get used to it.

V/Kim Taehyung: 

He’s another one to think of it as badass. He would definitely fawn over it, because it looks awesome, and you’re so brave to get it. And I have a feeling that if you have chubby cheeks/dimples, he’d love it if you got dimple piercings because they’d make you look even cuter in his mind. But pretty much any piercing would go down well with him.

Originally posted by agustddarling


Jungkook/Jeon Jeongguk: 

I feel like he’s more of a tattoo kinda guy, but he definitely likes piercings as well. So he’d be very much like Namjoon, and just find it badass and hot. He would definitely show you off to the members, and other friends, whenever he can. And if it’s a piercing he really likes, he might even suggest that he gets one, so you have matching piercings. But that would only happen if you had been in a relationship for several years, and if his career allows it.

But seriously though, can I point out how heart breaking this is?? 

I felt like I was watching Ride grow up, I remember feeling happy for him when he got to pilot his first MS, and then feeling proud when he became such a tiny badass when fighting against the mobile armour.

^He was like this, but now he’s like that. I felt my heart break when I saw him make that painful expression after shooting Nobliss…

(All my friends are kinda joking that he has turned into Ride F Seiei now, and he’s going to join Celestial Being soon… So Rustal better watch his back. Ride is coming to get him.)

anonymous asked:

I recently started reading LoK fic again (cos I'm excited about the comics), but there's so much new stuff. Do you have any recs? Love Spin the Rails, btw.

Thanks, anon! I’m going to assume by “Spin the Rails” you also mean all of @lokgifsandmusings‘s works on that series as well. If not, go read those. 

Aside from that, I guess I have a few recs, but none of them are particularly new. Actually, none of them are since I kinda stopped reading fanfic for the most part. Been busy. And I’ve recced all of these before aside from one, I think.

Kyoshi: Swan Song by @fell-dragon-domain is pretty freaking cool. It’s Kyoshi’s life story being retold to Korra by Kyoshi herself. Lots of lore and world-building, and an all-around fantastic character piece. 

The Trial by @tsaomengde: A psychological horror-ish fic about why airbenders are pacifists. One of my favorite TLOK GenFics, by far. 

Reparations by @carrogath: one of the weirdest Korrasami stories I’ve ever read, but also one of the most emotionally evocative. @beech27​ likes that it doesn’t have an ending because he’s also weird, but I kinda see his point. Kinda. 

Instincts of a Fearful Body by @emirael and @skyedancer-rae: this is honestly the only RedLotus!Korra AU (also technically an Equalist!Asami AU but not nearly as hardcore as you’d think) I could buy, and for good reason. Excellent characterization (everyone still feels the same, but under differing circumstances) and a genuinely engaging and interesting story. 

Ice and Stone by gxanderia: The big, badass and beautiful Asami epic that inspired me to write my own. Criminally under-rated and under-read.

Icarus and the Sea by @unpretty​: The only Zhurrick fic you’ll ever need. So good it’s canon. And also I “borrowed” so much of the characterization and backstory laid out here for RRaU it’s ridiculous. I mean, I always made note when I did, but still.

Anything by @raedmagdon and her many collaborators. I ain’t gonna tell you which ones made me cry because most of them do, to be honest.

You could throw a dart board at @ruminantmonk‘s work and find something good. Often strange, but always good. 

Oh, and here’s a fun game: there were four “prominent” authors, and their fics, omitted from this list. Try to guess who they were and why! :D No, seriously, I left hints!

Here, I’ll do the first one for you: @jtavington and “Unstable Equilibrium” because it doesn’t exist anymore and I’m still kinda bummed about that. :(

Anyway, that’s about it. Happy reading, leave a comment and kudos. Spread the word. All that great stuff. If you don’t I’ll know :D

Thoughts on Supernatural 12x10

OKAY, I usually don’t do this but I NEED to say how I feel about the last episode of Supernatural (12x10) cause it was just so PER-FECT. 

  • ONE EPISODE FOCUSED ON CASTIEL (we needed that)
  • Castiel’s female vessel : so important for the show 
  • They have the SAME BLUE EYES omg i’m dead x_x 
  • Great flashbacks about Castiel’s past where we get to see how he went to Earth when he was still on mission for Heaven.
  • GOD, I’d missed Badass!Cas so much xD
  • I love how Dean was in the beginning of the episode, like “Damn it, bae, you can’t save my life everytime you know, sometimes there might have consequences. No really you need to stop saving my asses, love.” 
  • “We’ll come with you” “Both of you?” IS DEAN COMING CAUSE OTHERWISE I’M NOT EVEN INTERESTED SAM #lmao
  • SAM IS JUST 100% DONE IN THAT EPISODE 
  • Dean being the grumpy husband and Cas the unsatisfized wife is the best thing that the writers could have done #they’re married
  • The Impala is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack ♥ I’ve missed baby. 
  • That scene in the Impala: they’re really fighting and snarking at each other like an old married couple and that’s so touching because it’s exactly what they are. Now everybody can see it ^^
  • Oh, he speaks” the sarcasm level has just exploded. 
  • Dean is jeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalous! It’s happening, guys!
  • Dean being touchy and easily offended when it’s about Cas like “What’s that supposed to mean?” WELL, It means he wants you to be gentle and kind and caring with him too, dummy! Come on, Dean! 
  • Can we agree Sam was Dean and Cass’ therapist in that episode? 
  • Sasstiel is back! “If I plan to do anything else stupid, I’ll let you know”
  • “And you’re gonna storm in riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight now” LMAO 
  • No one knows Dean more than Sam, alright? And Sam knew Dean couldn’t handle letting Cas alone, even for like five minutes. If that’s not someone who ships destiel, then I don’t fucking know what it is.
  • Dean being overprotecting with Cas is so cute :3 When he charged into that restaurant and just sat down next to Cas like “He’s mine, don’t even try to lay a finger on him, you asshole”, I was in Heaven! 
  • But where is the personal space? Like remember the time Dean was uncomfortable with Cas being too close to him? Remember that time he said “Cas, we talked about it. Personal space.” HE LITERALLY JUST SAT DOWN TWO INCHES AWAY FROM HIM. 
  • Sam almost falling off the bench seat, I was laughing out loud (like the guy is a freaking giant, give him so space, Dean xD)
  • Who wants some pie?” Dean Winchester, everyone 
  • Sam and Dean protecting Castiel, THANKS GOD! It was so necessary. Castiel has a serious self esteem matter and it’s always good to see Dean and Sam trying to fix him, trying to fix this crappy image he has.
  • Have some pie”, Dean actually considering it x) Pie is Dean’s true love!
  • Touching story about a mom and her child, loved it! #the feels
  • Dean and Sam whispering, thinking she can’t hear them, lmao
  • And she can hear you” LOL #sassy queen 
  • Oh Goodie” LIKE I’VE SAID SASSTIEL IS BACK!
  • Dean fighting for Cas again, I’m not even surprised. 
  • DEAN IS OFFICIALLY CAS’S WEAKNESS I REPEAT DEAN IS OFFICIALLY CASTIEL’S WEAKNESS #argjzohzihxajnnzdpo
  • I can’t believe Dean chose to not activate the angel mark to save his life because it was dangerous for Cas like “yeah you know I’m at the ground, wounded and powerless, and this is the only way to save my ass but it might hurt Cas so nope, not gonna happen” OKAY.  
  • Cas saved the day (agaaaaain) and that was perfect : he didn’t need anyone’s help, he did it alone, because that’s right, he’s still a badass warrior even if he has more emotions now. You can be humanly emotive and be badass as hell. And it’s exactly what Cas is. 
  • Cas seeking for forgiveness, I was like “my baby needs a hug!” 
  • You’re not weak, Cas” : Dean and Sam recognizing how strong and powerful Cas is, even if he hasn’t his wings anymore was awesome!
  • What do we do now?” “Let’s drink” kinda made me think about Castiel’s line “ I suggest we imbibe copious quantities of alcohol” lmao
  • I hope they’ll manage to find a solution about the nephilim! 

IN TWO WORDS: THE FEELS. 

So I had a dream about Galra Keith

Team Voltron finds out there is a rebellion. They finally meet Keith’s mom - who turns out to be the very badass intimidating General of the resistance. Keith is still kinda weirded out by having a set of parents who are suprisingly disgustingly domestic with eachother 

[”That’s what having parents is like, dude” says Lance]

When he finally feels a sense of happiness at the idea that he has a family, he finds out his mom has a handfull of warrior sisters [aunts who are very vocal about the violent things they want to do to Zarkon if they ever get their hands on him “Well look at that? Your violent tendencies aren’t galran at all, it just runs in the family” “Lance

anonymous asked:

Is so hard to like Lillian because she has hurt Lena so much all her life but at the same time how can you not love her?! Like, as a character? Brenda is amazing and Lillian is too, to be honest. Did you see her smug face in the promo and sneek peak? It's funny because I kinda see Lena in her, or like I see where Lena gets some of her personality. I'm so excited for tonight!

You took the words right out of my mouth love! I feel so conflicted when it comes to Lillian. As an individual, I want love her and love to hate her, you know? She adds something very interesting to the show. Naturally, I cannot stand the idea of how she treats/manipulates Lena and what we know she must have put Lena through during her childhood.

But ugh… she’s such a badass?? And yes, I definitely yelled at that expression.

And I do love her scenes with Lena. They have an interesting dynamic that is so great to see. Katie and Brenda’s chemistry is great and it is even better knowing their fondness for one another and their characters.

Blue Song

Request: Could you please write a Clint Barton x reader where the reader is a badass archer and listens to mint royale - blue song when fighting xx

Pairings: Clint x fem!Reader

Word Count: 857

Warnings: Minor violence, some fluff

A/N: I would definitely recommend you guys actually listen to Blue Song by Mint Royale when you read this. I feel like it really conveys the reader’s mind-set when she fights, like kinda chill and generally badass.

 

“Everyone in position?” Cap asked through the coms.

“Ready.”

“I’m here.”

“Good to go.”

Echoes of confirmation sounded in your ears as you fiddled with your phone screen.

“Y/N?”

You grinned to yourself as you tapped the familiar icon and placed a bud in your ear, “Ready and waiting, Cap.” The beat had already begun, a faint thrumming in your ear, and you began tapping your foot. You glanced to the side to find Clint looking at you in a semi fond-semi exasperated fashion but you only wiggled your eyebrows at him and grinned, pulling an arrow from your sheath and notching it.

“Ok, team. In three-”you closed your eyes breathing in, “two-” you let out a breath, tuning out Steve’s voice and concentrating on the beat, “one, go!”

Ooh, you released an arrow, right through my head. You smirked to yourself at the irony, reaching for another arrow. In the periphery of your vision, you could see Clint firing off arrows in quick succession, sometimes shooting two or three at a time.

“Show off,” you muttered with a raised eyebrow. You took four arrows from your sheath and notched them at once. He caught onto the challenge at once and smirked.

Your movements were almost lazy as you fired shot after shot.

I ain’t got the blues no more I said.

You swayed slightly, enjoying the beat, everything except the music and your targets having faded away. You made sure to keep your muscles relaxed, breathing in and out slowly on every shot.

Whilst Clint’s style was fast, powerful and flashy, you favoured a more measured and therefore infinitely more accurate approach. Hey, you were old-fashioned. It was an argument the two of you had revisited many times and so every time you were on the field together, it became a competition to prove who was better; usually it ended in a draw.

“You’re losing, birdbrain,” you sung, watching an arrow make its home in a man’s heart whilst you bobbed your head to the music.

Step some more I said, pick me up.

He loosed another arrow that flew through the air towards one of Natasha’s assailants. It landed in his arm and promptly exploded and you rolled your eyes as he flashed you a cheeky grin.

“You’re so dramatic.”

“And you love me anyway.”

“Hmm.”

You knew Clint was perfectly capable of being accurate when he wanted rather than using showy tech, but well, the saying ‘boys and their toys’ came to mind.

Your movements were fluid as you danced around the rooftop, finding each and every angle to shoot from. You and Clint moved as one, never aiming for the same person, never pausing to think, just moving, just dancing. Movement caught your eye and you released an arrow at the target you had previously sighted, not watching for it to land. Instead you pulled an arrow from your back, notching it as you ran at Clint.

“Duck!”

He listened without questioning, ducking into position as you rolled over his back, the movement familiar and well-practised. You loosed an arrow and the woman fell back over the edge of the building. You sprinted to her previous position and yanked up the grappling hook she had used, so no one else could use it.

Thinkin’ I got a lot, groovy I am.

The fight ended almost as quickly as it had begun; it was a simple clear out mission of an old hydra safehouse. You pulled the bud from your ear, the music fading away and looked around, checking off each of the team members to make sure they were ok.

“Everyone good?” Cap asked through the coms. The team confirmed it through the coms and there was a shared sigh of relief.

“There’s a really good shawarma joint nearby, anyone fancy a post-mission bite to eat?” Tony suggested cheerfully.

“Really Tony? Again with the shawarma?”Nat asked, rolling her neck.

You rolled your eyes at their bickering and switched off your coms. You turned to Clint with a smile and wandered over to him, eyes mischievous.

You were barely a foot away from him when something caught your eye. You cocked your head to the left, curious. Your eyes widened and you shoved him away from you, ignoring his noises of surprise and protest.

The man fell to the floor, dead, and you let out a small sigh of relief.

Then you twirled back to Clint, laughing as he got up, looking a tad put out, “Sorry, babe. Had to take care of some guy who just wouldn’t take no for an answer. Also,” you sauntered forwards, reaching out and pulling him towards you by his suit, “I win.” You whispered the words in his ear, a lopsided grin on your face. He shoved you away playfully but soon brought you back into his arms with a smile.

You curled your arms around his neck as he held your waist, looking down at you fondly, “You might win a battle, but the war is far from done, honey,” he replied, leaning into you.

You smiled into the sweet kiss, “I’ll win that too, honey.”

One of the cheesiest and yet, simultaneously one of my favourite lines from Dragon Age: Origins is in the Mage Origin, when Jowan says “You have so much power. Once you’re free… they wouldn’t be able to stop you.” And it’s like, such a masturbatory moment for the Player because of that feeling of “yeah I’m a badass” it gives you, but at the same time it’s just, kinda true. Like over the next year in-game, a LOT of people are going to try and stop you from doing an awful lot of things. But Jowan’s right. They just can’t. And playing the game for the millionth time and knowing what the Mage is capable of, when Jowan says “you have so much power”, you kinda feel it in your bones. Fuck yeah I do.

She reached into the pocket of her riding leathers and extended the Amulet of Orynth and a sliver of black stone to Dorian. He balked.

“Elena said Mala’s bloodline can stop this. It runs in both your houses.

The golden eyes were weary–heavy.
He realized what Manon was asking.
