Speeches

You open Thomas’ new Sanders Sides video, entitled simply, “Speeches.” After a moment of loading, it begins. Not with his usual, “What is up everybody?!” Simply the loud title card and a fade-in.

Of Roman, standing in his usual spot. He’s smiling. “Hello, my brave and beautiful prince, princess, or non-binary royalty! Tis I, the great Prince Roman! I would just like to take a moment to commend you on your bravery! One such as you deserves all the best, yet time and again you face your dragon-witch! I promise you that with a little magic, and many-a Disney song—along with some encouraging from the valiant yours truly—that dragon-witch will be slain and no longer be able to do you harm! Keep fighting, you strong prince, princess, or non-binary royalty! You will succeed!”

Patton appears after a jump cut, standing in front of the blinds, as always. “Hey kiddo, Dad Patton here! I know you’re going through a trying time in your life. Everyone does! But I gotta say: you’re gonna do just fine. Life’s problems come and go, but some of the hardest ones can always be slightly improved by a couple-a dad jokes! Never be afraid of the power of laughter. I promise you that everything will turn out alright. And you can’t let life get down. I mean, you can’t let life get you down. But if life gets down, you win that dance-off!” He pauses. “Get it? Get down? Like dancing? No? Okay.” Patton grins and giggles. “Anyway! Much love from your internet old man! Hi Brave, I’m Dad!”

Logan follows Patton. “Good day, my star student,” he begins, straightening his glasses. “While I could stand here and wax philosophical about human existence and the nature of the reasons why you are where you are, I’ve been told by the others that could possibly be emotionally insensitive. So I won’t. But I do have a lesson for you. As follows: some say life is a roller coaster. They’re wrong. A roller coaster is a feat of physics and engineering achieved by the arches and spins getting smaller and smaller to maintain momentum. Life does not work that way. Life’s arches and spins vary in intensity and size. In this way, life resembles the visual manifestation of sound waves. Life is music, my young student. A beautiful symphony that has dips and swells, creating an experience unique to each composer, each musician, and each listener. Once you realize this, it gets easier to listen to the music of life.”

Another audio file cuts in. “Aww! You actually listened to me!”

“Be quiet, Roman, or I’ll send you to detention!” Logan retorts. He looks back to the camera. “Anyway. Interruption aside: I hope you take that lesson into your life. It will be worth remembering. Have a lovely day, star student, and feel better soon!”

Virgil appears last. “Hey,” he says, not quite looking at the camera. “Look, the others can be sappy and positive all they want. I guess that’s their job, or something. Especially Dad and Sir Sings-A-Lot. I’m not required to be that way. It’s part of what I am. But today is different. Today is a day when life is even darker than me. Which, I guess, is saying something. But everything is going to be fine. A little anxiety is a good thing. It’ll keep you alive and attentive. But don’t let it overwhelm you. Pretty sure Teach over there explained it to Thomas before. Some productivity curve whose name I can’t remember—”

“Yerkes-Dodson Curve!” Logan interrupts.

“Whatever,” Virgil mutters. “So while life is hard, it’ll get better. Once it does, just keep a little bit of me around and you’ll still be okay. But not too much. I guess I can get a little… toxic in large doses. So be safe, okay kid? Just be careful. That’s what I’m here for.” He nods.

The video shuts off.


Huge thanks to @thatsthat24 for creating such awesome characters! These were fun to make! This came about because of @pancakesanders so equally huge shoutout!

I use the same gif everytime someone plz make changki gifs

Note: not requested but I wanted to make some changki so yeah; have some changki. credit to @super-mario-girl as this is her prompt I have used as inspiration for this. It didn’t come out as well as I’d liked, but eh, the concept is there that I wanted to get across. Please enjoy my trash. 

I do not own the gifs used. 

Since the moment you’re born, the first words of your soulmate are tattooed against your wrist. It comes to numerous hilarities, Changkyun had seen many instances where his friends had rude, or inappropriate one liners against their skin, but his? Well, he couldn’t exactly read his.

It wasn’t that he wasn’t intelligent, no, Changkyun tops each of his classes in miles. It’s just, his arm is tattooed in Korean. Yes, Korean… Korean. Sure, he had Korean origins, his family lived there before their bond of marriage. But since the moment he stepped foot on Earth, he had lived on Boston grounds, and never strayed too far away from that.

His friends always joked, saying how he’d end up finding his soulmate to be a beautiful foreign woman. There was only a few issues with that: one, he had no intention to go to Korea, and two, he had no intention of meeting a woman.

That was what he told himself for years and years, that he didn’t care, that he didn’t want to know; except, he did care, and he did want to know. Changkyun is intelligent, and if there is one thing he hates the most in the world (beside the concept of soulmates) is not knowing. He can’t stand not knowing. If he fails a test, he has to know why, he finds it hard to accept gray areas where there isn’t just one specific answer.

So after years of denial, he picked up a Korean textbook.

He studied, and studied. He figured out rather quickly that his tattoo’s words were a rather simple; “are you alright?”

That wasn’t anything that his parents couldn’t tell him, but they refused. He needed to find it out for himself, and they knew him too well. His mother knew that once he started looking into it, even just the simple meaning of his tattoo, he wouldn’t just be able to leave it at that. She knew he’d build up the will to find his soulmate. Other than living a long, fulfilling life, that’s the only other thing she’d ever wanted for him.

And as she predicted, he was taking the trip to the unknown. It was the first time he actually felt nervous. He clutched his rucksack tightly, muttering something about “fucking stupid soulmates” as he paced toward his flight.

Upon arriving in Korea, he realised how grateful he was that he’d actually taken his language skills further than “are you alright?” it was like walking into a whole new world.

Seoul was busier than he’d imagined, then he realised how stupid it was to assume it would be any less. It was a city after all. It was that moment that it hit him that he was well and truly out of his depths. How was he supposed to find one person in amongst thousands? And “are you alright” is such a common phrase, literally anyone could ask him that. “Fucking hell, couldn’t you have been a little more creative?” Changkyun cursed at his soulmate internally as he tried to orientate himself amongst the bustling tube station.

He’d missed rush hour, and somehow, luck was on his side as he entered a mostly cleared tube. He fell back into a seat, uncaring that he’d startled the male beside him.

“Are you alright?” The man questioned him.

Changkyun rolled his eyes, he was started to despise those words. “How cliche of you to ask”

He was expecting some kind of response to his rudeness, but when he turned to look beside him, the man looked shell shocked. His eyes wide, deer like. His pastel pink hair fell over his eyes as the tube lurched. He shook his head, chuckling, finally.

“Yoo Kihyun” He extended his arm.

Then, a sudden rush of butterflies in his gut.

“How cliche of you to ask” glittered against the man’s wrist, the same way his tattoo now was. He felt it tingling. He thought he was going to explode his cheeks were so warm.

“Lim Changkyun.” He gulped, taking the extended hand.

anonymous asked:

Is it just me, or does it feel like Jungkook and Hobi don't have very many moments?

OMG ANON ARE YOU ASKING ME TO SPAM YOU WITH JUNGHOPE MOMENTS? Okay anyways, to address the question, I know it might seem like Junghope have very few moments but I assure you they actually have quite a lot. Like suga/kookie, Junghope has a lot of behind the scenes/background and subtle moments that are hard to notice if you don’t actively look for it. Their moments have been more obvious lately but even back then, there were quite a lot. It’s been mentioned several times by different members that Hobi and Kook were extremely close predebut and that Hobi was the one that Kook let loose around and relied on. Now is about the time where I spam you with Junghope. So here we go~

Throwback Junghope they were super close

Junghope since Rookie King Days Hobi pulling him in by the neck ;-; (I found this gif on google images and it’s from We Heart It I really have no idea who made this gif)

This actually happened….

(Cr. @/janice0chung0) I mean come on, look at the stares. 

Never forget Now3.

This actually happened too.

I know the FFXV Fandom has been stirred up recently with a bunch of toxic/hateful messages. Most from what I have seen have been messages that look like the person sending them is jealous that they are not more well known. 

Popularity, as a content creator of any kind isn’t something that just happens overnight. Why do you think creators constantly reblog their work? 

It honestly takes a lot of hard work to ‘churn’ or ‘slog’ out stories every day. To pick up the pen and draw a sketch or a doodle, to provide content that person wishes to share with you. Unless you specifically paid for something - you are not paying anyone for a service here. This is all freely given out of this person’s own time.

It’s not like most of these content creators can rest their hand on their monitor, close their eyes and *POOF* get instant content. [ But if it did work that way, OMG I’d be ecstatic cause that means I’d get story ideas out of my head before I lose them! ]

Besides, tumblr actually did something good and updated it’s filtering tag system. If something bothers you - use them. It is not up to the creator to make sure that you have a safe, non-triggering experience.


Sorry, I’m rambling, Let me sum this post up –  In light of all the negativity let me just say:

To everyone that writes Fanfiction. THANK YOU! 

To everyone that draws something: THANK YOU!

To everyone that edits GIFs and creates renders. THANK YOU!

Without you, my day would be quite boring. Thank you so very much, for sharing your creativity with me. Your words, your ideas, and the things that you love most in this fandom.

Much love ♥

Messy hair, Don't care

OML . I saw a few gifs of Sebastian Stan’s messy hair and I GOT THE FEELS.

So I did a smutty n fluffy af one shot outta this cuz I couldn’t resist. I apologize because it might not be well written but it was stuck in my head ALL DAY LONG.

◇◇◇●●●◇◇◇●●●◇◇◇●●●

I was happy I decided to come along with Sebastian to this Comic-Con. Leaving my usual worries back at home and taking care of myself. Of course Stan still had to work, but I liked being able to support him. The best part was when the day was over, he’d come back to the room and make love to you for hours.

Today he had meetings with some important people, so I took the morning to enjoy the pool with Elsa -Chris Hemsworth’s wife- and her babygirl. “The twins stayed back home with grandma’.” she’d said. You played around with India all morning, she was a really playful one. When lunch time arrived, both of you headed to your respective rooms to shower and be ready for the afternoon activities.

As I got out of the shower -with a towel around my body and another on my head- the room door flew open and my husband walked in. Looking like he just ran a marathon. “Are you okay?” I ask, he chuckled and looked at me closing the door. “I am… very horny, that’s what I am.” he mumbles, liking his lips as he inspects my body. I cock an eyebrow at him, a perky smile appearing on my lips. “Why would that be?” I ask and he walks towards me. “There was this one picture of you in your bikini today..” he trails off putting a hand in your waist. You giggle when he pulls you closer to his body and he bites his lower lip. “And another one with India on your hip, you two looked so cute.” he grabs a hair that has slipped from the towel on your head, smiling.

“And just the thought of you as a mom seemed so hot for a second.” his eyes are on your body now and you can feel the growing bulge under his pants. You immediately pull him into a passionate kiss and it turns wild in a matter of seconds. He grabbed your waist and lifted you from the floor, taking you to the bed. He gets rid of the towel of your hair carefully as he continues to explore your mouth with his tongue. You run your hands through his hair and pull of it as he bites your lower lip.

He looks into your eyes and smiles “You should quit the pills.” he says and you freeze. For quite a while you had been considering to stop taking the contraception pills you were on, because you felt ready and wished to have a baby with your husband. You discussed it with him some days ago and gave him time to think about it. And here you were. You kiss him repeatedly. “Are you sure? A baby requires a lot of love, time and attention .. I would hate it for you to not be around a lot.” You say making a puppy face and cupping his cheek. He grabs your hand and kisses it. “After the movie I’m filming it’s over I don’t have any upcoming projects for ten months, and if we do achieve a pregnancy nor will I sing up for more in the lapse our baby’s first year. You have nothing to worry about, I want this just as much a you do.” He was serious about this, he had decided he wanted a baby too. He’d even made plans to make this works. And nothing could make you happier. “Well, even tho we need to plan this out better than this… we should get right to it. you give him a big smile and bring his fingers to your mouth provocatively.

His hands were all over you again as he kissed you and you are reluctant to undress him, looking so hot in those clothes and with a tie. His lips trail down your neck making an obscene but sexy sound. You let out a soft moan as his hands reach your breasts. By this moment he is humping you, seeking liberation. My arms climb to the back of his neck as he bites my collarbone lightly, and when his fingers make their way to my ass to finish removing the towel there is a knock on the door.

"FUCK” he whimpers under his breath, you let go of him knowing he wouldn’t ignore it but you aren’t even mad. He quickly answers, walking outside and almost closing the door behind his back so whoever it was couldn’t see you naked and spread in the bed. You chuckled, your heart beating fast. You heard the indistinct conversation of your husband with the person who knocked to your door and you could hear his nervous laughs. He was acting very awkward and you couldn’t even see him. This man would make the best father on the entire universe and you knew it.

hi anon~, welcome back (I guess you’re the one who asked about that particular ask) ^-^~
I’m sorry for my late reply again, I’m so wrecked today too and I needed time to think about it.


Okay~, I dunno if it helps, but here is what I tell myself a lot (as much as I love them, ship them, basically root for them, want them to be happy together if possible of course): “My ship ain’t real until they confirm/say it themselves that they’re real”. And even until then, there’s still sth to consider, called “marketing strategy”, since this is the Kpop world we’re talking about (there have been idols dating simply for promoting their groups). However, with all my honesty, and my (biased) belief, BTS and Big Hit will never go that far. The members treasure the members themselves, and the members also treasure us fans.

This is getting so heavy somehow so lemme insert a gif to make things a little bit brighter 

Originally posted by rapmonsexpensivegirl

Okay I’m good to go. So does that mean they don’t do fanservice at all? Of course not. But they’ve toned it down throughout the years. I don’t follow other members as much as Jimin (it’s the truth, I’m a Jimin stan afterall), so I can’t really tell you about it. But for Jimin, I agree with some other people, that the Jimin now we see is more like the real Jimin, not less than the Jimin back in 2013-2014. That, by no means, implies that he was fake either. He could’ve been himself, but at the same time, he had to push himself outside his own norms too. It’s nothing unusual, since they just debuted, plus he was young, they needed attention, they needed to be entertaining, as rookies, they needed to do a lot of stuff. 

Back to our babies Jimin and Jungkook, to be honest and realistic again, of course 100% things they do to each other can’t solely be on their own accords, without being driven by what we call fanservice. However, honestly again, has Jikook/Kookmin always been a popular ship? No, not until recently. Imo, the more popular ship has the tendency to do fanservice more. I think Sajeon-nim also talked about this somewhere in her asks. And one more important thing, Jikook/Kookmin is mostly known for being subtle (but probably not until recently, thanks to our Jeon Jungkook-ssi being so whipped and seems to have no intention of hiding it or toning it down. Well, not that I don’t encourage you, keep up the good work, baby bunny ♥). Like you really have to pay attention to it to actually know it, but once you notice it, you notice it all the time, it’s like a pattern, a series that never ends.

All the “I got my (heart) eyes on you” here, here, here and there:

Originally posted by jikookdetails

Most of the time, there’s basically no reason for them to do fanservice at all, because it happens too fast (for a few secs, or not even 1 sec), and basically no one is really watching, they’re not in the center of attention etc. …

All the time Jungkook made fun of himself simply just to make Jimin laugh, and he even checked if Jimin actually laughed…

The time they got caught walking together in the back in Bon Voyage, ate with the same spoon (I’m sure they have plenty of spoons in airbnb houses) even tho Jungkook tried not to drink directly from the same bottle with others (no offense to any ship really, I just can’t find more examples in my rusty mind)

Love your take on everything & it really gives me hope for a destiel endgame. I was wondering if you had noticed Dean getting a bit more 'camp'? I don't subscribe to that kind of stereotype normally but as Jensen, a supposedly straight, (let's keep cockles out of this!) actor's interpretation of bi, it seems as though his mannerisms have been somewhat feminised, maybe? I'm thinking mostly of The Face that Mary points out. (also Max's interest in the grenade launcher interests me!) discuss :-)

Helloooo my dear and lovely Nonny! 

Yes, this reply is long overdue and all I can ask is your forgiveness!! Thank you so much, I’m glad you’re enjoying my take and that it gives you hope! :)

I’ve had to ponder this question for a good long while, tbh, because I kind of know what you mean, but I also feel that Jensen’s mannerisms as Dean have had a few wrist flicks and eye rolls that have always felt overly dramatic because Dean can be high drama, right? I don’t know if I’d necessarily label these things as camp or feminised, though.

I mean, I could watch this gif forever. This moment is so fucking awesome! :P

We could theorise into eternity about what’s true and what’s not true about how Jensen claims to play Dean so straight and so uber-masculine, right? I mean… proof’s in the pudding, puddin’ - and even though the editors can change the meaning of a scene by cutting out parts or changing stuff around, there are too many moments that are clearly directed, if not chosen by Jensen in how to be acted out, that are done so in order to be edited in a certain way. There have been these moments of wrist flicking from the beginning, I’d say, because it’s how Dean moves in certain moods or moments. 

Anyone who disagrees with this, please, do jump in! I encourage you adding your thoughts and interpretation!

Now, I know we could debate where Jensen stands until we’re all blue in the face and we’d still be none the wiser. I know a lot of people who believe he sincerely did not know that Dean is meant to be bisexual and that he played him straight as a doornail for eleven or twelve years until someone said, look, we’re deciding to move forward with the love story so, beware, Dean is in love with Cas and this is happening. And I think this is fair enough! Because Jensen has been so outspoken about how he plays Dean and relates to Dean and Dean is s.t.r.a.i.g.h.t.

Yeah, in there lies the problem for me. In what motivation he’s had to make this statement again and again. I find it hard to believe that an actor would work on any project for over a decade and not take an interest or feel curiosity about how the narrative is built. Actually, I find it improbable. Jensen has spoken about how he used to fill every page of the scripts he’d get with thoughts on Dean’s motivation. Does this mean Jensen knew Dean is meant to be bi? Nope. And I can’t argue for or against, merely say that it doesn’t add up to me - at all - that an actor who is so in tune with his craft and who clearly cares about this character would play him - consistently - for twelve years without really knowing him. 

There is this marked pattern with Dean where he’s attracted to a man and immediately overcompensates by chasing a woman and it’s established in 2x02 with Ash and Jo (if not sooner…). It’s fascinating to watch that episode and notice this pattern because it becomes like a subliminal thing. 

It in no way works as proof that Jensen chose to play Dean attracted to Ash, and running after Jo to narratively compensate for it, like it’s a subtextual scale that weighs too hard on one side and then immediately needs to be righted by overtly stating that Dean prefers women. (which looking at the subtext blatantly just is not the whole truth and never was) But it’s a character trait that is brushed at from the start and then becomes the lynchpin for so many important character moments and, looked at that way, even works as foreshadowing for Castiel and the role he’s going to play in Dean’s character progression. But I shan’t go into deeper details on that now because then we’ll be here until Christmas morning. 

What I’m saying is that this has been a conscious part of Dean’s character from the beginning (to my mind) and my mind fucking boggles at the idea that Jensen - who has dedicated such a huge chunk of his career to playing Dean, a performance that will, most likely, be a career defining one - would not know everything there is to know about Dean. 

Okay, I’m crossing over into complete Jensen-behaviour conjecture and speculation and that’s not really what your question was about. (though they do relate, as your question reflected) :P

As for Max and the grenade launcher (god what a lovely choice of topic you throw my way!!) :) –>

Max is gay. Max is hot. Max likes the look of Baby. Max is invited to view Baby’s goodies. Max notices the grenade launcher. 

(that wasn’t meant to come out as the text for a story book for children) (…or was it) ;)

This has been discussed before so it’s very likely that you’ve read up on it a while back because I am so damn late in replying, buuuuut let me still give you the bare bones of this exchange, yeah? I mean, they’re pretty amazing bones.

The exchange between Max and Dean opens with Max saying that Baby is still “major” and Dean offering him the tour. Which consists of what? Max calling out the grenade launcher. And Dean replying to Max’s question of “is that a grenade launcher” with “yes she is” but then immediately grabbing what they need: witch killing bullets. 

I mean, the actual lead into this exchange is Max telling everyone he successfully got a guy’s phone number, right? Dean making this face:

What’s so amazing is how Dean gets a dose of a guy completely and utterly at ease with his sexuality, and then we’re taken to the trunk of Baby - the prop that Jensen says “is a part of me”, speaking as Dean…….. - and shown the phallic shaped monstrosity of a weapon in serious need of release and Dean, aptly, assigns it a sex and, to his mind, it’s a “she”, it’s a female in need of release, as is Dean’s non-performing side. His feminine side, if you will. His yin to his overcompensating, toxically masculine yang.

The beginning of inner balance being found between these two is given to us by Dean launching that grenade into that cement wall in 12x22. 

And here we have a beautiful setup for exactly what that moment means for Dean Winchester. And that he is so extremely subconsciously aware of it all.

“Yes, she is.”

I mean…. seriously, Dean.

And why is it Max asking to dig his nose into Baby’s junk? Sorry, I mean trunk. (….or do I?) Because Max is a reflection of Dean throughout this entire episode. He is our Dean exposition in many many ways. And he ends up making the wrong choice for the right reasons. And I look forward to when Max and Alicia return and I wonder if Alicia will be restored. Come on, Jack. You know you can right this wrong!! :)

Thank you for asking, Nonny! And happy holidays to you!

hopefulmelodies  asked:

One of my family members seems convinced I'm an ESFP, but I relate a lot to Fe. I'm good at reading people, I adjust my behavior depending on who I'm interacting with, I mirror people, etc. However, I also have strong independent emotions and don't share negative feelings with people I don't know well. So, my question is, when can Fi look like Fe, and how do you really tell the difference between them?

(Gif: Call the Midwife girls. - ESFJ, ESTJ, ESFP.)

But why are you doing it?

Fe would say, “Because it’s the appropriate thing to do.”

Fi would say, “Because this is who I am.”

When confronted with a situation you do not like at all, can you disguise your own feelings with false feelings in order to make the other person believe you are on board when you are not? Or would doing that seem like a betrayal of yourself? If you tried it, would the mask crack and the truth show through?

I once got stuck at a table with people I didn’t like. My friend was there with me, a Fe-user. She didn’t like them either. Guess which one “played nice”? Engaged them in conversation? Was affable while I refused to talk to anyone and kept quiet? She did. Why didn’t I? I didn’t like them. I disapproved of the sort of things they said. I didn’t like one woman’s attitude toward her kids’ feelings. I didn’t see any point in socializing when I just knew I was going to insult them at some point. So, at the end of the day, no one at that table knew my friend was internally going UGH. They all gushed and thought she was WONDERFUL. No, it was me that had been, as Lizzie calls Mr. Darcy, “unsociable and taciturn.”

Something else about Fi: can’t tell what people feel about it. Fi can only guess. Speculate. Or ask oneself, “If they were me, how would I feel about me?” So, a Fi in a social situation doesn’t really have a sense of what people are feeling about them and might guess all wrong. This is how you can shock a Fi by expressing romantic feelings for them they didn’t see coming; they didn’t read your feelings / expression and figure out that’s what you thought. (Or on the flip side, they might read you wrong and assume you love them when you don’t.)

Fi is… alone in a sea of people, in a group. They will choose to engage through Se/Te or Ne/Te (or vice versa) but they still feel alone. (In hindsight, I think this is where some of my social anxiety came from as a teenager. I never really could be sure what other people felt about me.)

Fi’s have to guess.

Are you having a good time?

Are you faking this?

Do you like it?

How do you feel about me?

Fe merges with others because it’s fine, it’s comfortable, it doesn’t cost Fe. This isn’t a betrayal of who I am. It’s a good thing to do, and they need me to do it.

Fi fits in because it wants to avoid conflict, or doesn’t see the point in being rude, or doesn’t care, or… because the Fi-user believes that rudeness, or not being attentive to others’ needs, or ‘acting out’ for attention, or not adjusting their behavior is not who they are. At the heart of Fi is: does this behavior fit my core self? Does it betray who I am and who I want to be? If so, I won’t do it.

Lastly, the sharing of feelings: Fe’s do it naturally. They break up with their boyfriend, they tell you all about it. Why. What he did. How they felt when he did that. By the end of the conversation, you will have no doubt where they stand, or what they felt, or who they are, or what happened.

If a Fi breaks up, they tell you: we broke up. And that might be it. Or you might get the FACTS of what happened. “He stood me up one too many times.” You may or may not get all the details. You probably won’t. And when you do, again, it’ll be the facts: this happened, and then that happened, and now we’re not together anymore. It’s defaulting into lower Te, because that’s how Fi communicates its emotions.

Distinguishing between Fe and Fi comes down to attitude. Is there a “we” (Fe) mindset, which classifies itself according to other people; or is there an “I” (Fi) mindset, which has an allergic reaction to too much “we”?

Hope that helps.

This has been a really really hard thing to sit on the last 10 weeks because I have been bursting at the seams (literally and figuratively… this bugger is making me VERY sick) but, even though I am not as active here as I once was, I’m sure there are many of you who still wanted to hear the news!

I’m currently a little over 14 weeks (the gif is from my first ultrasound), with a due date of January 1, 2018! We won’t find out the gender for another few weeks, but we’ll be happy with either (I’m leaning a little towards hoping for a boy, but it’s such a trivial thing). We had been trying for about a year, and while the timing seemed a little awkward at first, it actually ended up being perfect for us.

I’ll tack on a few other updates too, since I’ve been SO out of the loop for a very long time, and this is really only the most recent news! 

In my last update, I had just run my first race–and since then, I started working for a running-focused store, have a run a half marathon in Denver and 10 miler here at home (the right picture, in which I’m 8 weeks preggo!). I did some travelling to see family–my brother’s wedding, and another trip tomorrow! (And climbed a mountain this weekend–that’s the last pic!) Work has kept me pretty busy, but I absolutely love my job and the community it’s allowed me to be a part of. When I first started talking about running changing my life, it was mostly because of my self-image–now, it’s become my social life and my passion.

I thought about adding more pictures but there’s so much that’s happened and I’d like to keep this brief… But I think the most important thing is, the priorities of my life have changed quite a lot the last year or so, and while the sims and storytelling is still something I love, I recognize now that the extent of time I spent on it was trying to erase a void in my life that had left me very unhappy and lonely. It was exactly what I needed then, but things have changed so wonderfully for the better. I honestly never could have imagined things would get this good. (Which is why, no matter how depressed or in pain you are, remember: things can and DO get better. I promise.)

So for now… I don’t know what the future holds. I may be here, I may not. There are so many stories I want to write, to finish, but the most important ones are the ones I tell with living my life. So whether I see you tomorrow, or another year from now–know I care deeply about many of you, and miss you greatly. ♥♥♥

I recently came out as asexual and it confuses people because I have a daughter and I get broody. I feel like it invalidates me because I want more kids but wanting kids contradicts my sexuality. I don't know I'm just rambling I suppose, I just don't know what to do or if I would be welcome anywhere because I don't know any asexual that have or want children.

Asexuality is only really about sexual attraction and doesn’t have anything to do with your sex drive. Being ace doesn’t mean that you can’t have sex and it certainly doesn’t mean you can’t want  kids. Just as being gay or straight doesn’t have anything to do with people wanting or not wanting kids. For example, I’m aroace and I don’t want kids. It has nothing to do with me being aroace, I just have a low tolerance for children. It’s just a personal preference, not at all a contradiction. Your sexuality has nothing to do with your ability to love, care for and raise a child

Though I do see where you’re coming from. A fair amount of asexual blogs and groups focus on teenagers and young adults. (People who aren’t usually thinking about having kids at the moment.) I see a lot of stuff about coming out and sometimes see resources for parents of people who have come out as asexual, but not much for parents (or people who want to be parents) who ARE asexual. Which feels very short sited and uneven, really. All I could find was this thread on AVEN: http://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/70675-asexual-parents-thread/

I’ve read a few accounts of older parents who didn’t know that asexuality was even a thing, but related to it when it was explained to them. They may have been ace, but they were still good parent who loved their kids. Ace parents are welcome in the ace community. Don’t let anyone make you think that you can’t be a good parent or that you can’t want more kids because of your sexuality. Really, it’s none of their business. Just live your life, and take care of your babies!

Hello! I'm new to seventeen, and I really want to be part of this Fandom, but I honestly don't know how. I've been following your since a long time and I fell in love with seventeen! I really want to know about them. What should I do? Thanks for reading this~

ahh! i’m so glad ur interested in checking out our boys!! idk if you’re used to large groups like svt, but if you aren’t, then learning to attach names to faces can be pretty tough. luckily, svt is split up into 3 different “units” so it’s a bit easier. i hope it’s okay i use @shua​’s fantastic gifs to introduce the boys:

so this is hip hop unit, aka the rappers of the group, although they aren’t bad at singing either. in order from left to right, top to bottom, we get:

  • mingyu: ridiculously tall and ridiculously handsome, and if anyone knows me they know i want to fight him in a tim hortons parking lot. in truth, he’s a really sweet dorky guy, and whatever you do don’t give him something or he’ll drop it.
  • s.coups or seungcheol: leader of hip hop unit and overall leader of svt. has the unique ability to be both a friend and a respected leader. that all flies out the window once anything remotely competitive happens and suddenly he’s out for blood.
  • wonwoo: the designated Deep Voiced Rapper of the group and a total bookworm. he was pretty calm and quiet when they first debuted but has rapidly become more and more insane as time goes on.
  • vernon or hansol: he’s mixed (korean father, white mother) and has a plethora of embarrassing videos of him as a kid you can find on the internet. ridiculously chill but can be extra as fuck when he wants to be.

Originally posted by shua

and here is vocal unit, the singers! from left to right, we have:

  • jeonghan: a cheater, a swindler, a mastermind, and also the most genuinely caring, nurturing person you’ll ever meet. he used to have super long hair, and when he cut it short again the entire fandom basically lost its shit.
  • woozi or jihoon: THE LOVE OF MY LIFE not only is he the leader of the vocal unit, but he’s also talented and intense and composes all their music. if an introverted, awkward, acerbic cat was a person, that cat would be lee jihoon.
  • joshua or jisoo: originally from LA, he used to be the sweet gentleman guy before he revealed himself to be wild and dorky as all hell. if he went to college, i’m pretty sure he’d be the guy playing the guitar at parties. you know who i’m talking about.
  • seungkwan: one of the main singers. outgoing, great at comedy and variety, talented as fuck, and ridiculously soft-hearted. loves his mother to hell and back and so far has cried over every award/music show they’ve won.
  • dk or dokyeom or seokmin: the other main singer and literally a physical embodiment of pure sunshine. his smile has been scientifically proven to banish negativity within a 50ft radius. he’s Soft and Must Be Protected. also those thighs, holy shit, those thighs.

and finally, performance unit! they are the main dancers and will kill you with their moves. from left to right, top to bottom, we have:

  • dino or chan: the talented maknae of the group. his parents own a dancing studio and he looks up to michael jackson. ridiculously responsible and mature for his age, but the other members prefer to keep treating him like a baby.
  • jun or junhui: one of the chinese members. he used to be a child actor and is basically Perfection. a really sweet and supportive mom friend, but whatever you do don’t try and argue that he’s not hot shit bc he will 100% try to prove you wrong immediately.
  • the8 or minghao: the other chinese member and has crazy b-boying skills & can do flips and shit that basically give me a heart attack. he used to be pretty quiet because he wasn’t used to the language yet, but has since become a Roasting Champion.
  • hoshi or soonyoung: the leader of performance unit and the one who creates most of the group’s choreography. imaginative, energetic, focused, serious when he needs to be, and in general has absolutely no chill. like. at all.

and that’s all the members! what i recommend is to start watching their shows to help you get comfortable with them and get to know their personalities. i recommend watching in order:

  • 17 project: detailing their challenges and tasks up to their debut with adore u, here you get to meet baby!svt and see how hard they’ve worked to gain fans, improve their abilities, and come out as a new group. expect lots of tears.
  • one fine day: set roughly in between mansae and pretty u era, watch svt get thrown onto an island, learn to fish, beg for food, and nearly starve to death if it wasn’t for mingyu. i’m completely serious. that’s the whole show.
  • one fine day in japan: set after boom boom era and only just finished! it’s one fine day season 2, except now they’re chilling in akita, japan, where they frolick in the snow, struggle with the language, eat good food, and engage in the most heated, intense rivalry the world has ever seen. 

there’s also 17tv, back when they were trainees. it’s hard to really watch it all these days, but you can find english subbed video clips on youtube of baby!baby!svt messing around in practice rooms and (usually) being Gay As Fuck with each other. trust me, this is where half the shipping comes from.

and there’s plenty else i’m sure you can find, but this is how you can really get into them! also make sure to check out their music videos, albums, etc. etc. every fandom has their issues, but the svt fandom is in general a pretty great place with lots of cool ppl!!!

there’s been a lot of negativity going around that surrounds baekhyun. not sure where it’s really coming from but his last ig post really made me worried and then to hear/see things that could be related. just like the rest of exo, and probably similar to your groups/biases (if you’re not into exo but seeing this), he really worked hard to get to where he is. just because he’s part of sm/exo doesn’t mean they have it easy. he worked really hard, and even with things he was lacking because he only trained for a year, he’s definitely worked hard to get to where he is now. just because you don’t like his voice or how he looks with or without makeup doesn’t call for the negative comments. he is human afterall and is vulnerable with all the comments that goes towards him.

not only is he talented in his own way, he is also very loving and caring towards the other members. and the same is given back with them. and let’s not forget he still thinks about them as 12 with his slip ups so we know he still cares for the three that left.

you may not like him for some reason and that’s okay. to each their own. but remember they are humans and have feelings. 

disclaimer: i do not own supernatural or any of its character’s, only the plot in which i write.

Dean couldn’t help it. He knew it was hypocritical of him to be doing this when he had gotten on to Cas about it a thousand times over from the day he met him to this very day. But the ex-angel was— dare he say it— breathtaking in moments like this.

His face was lax, completely rid of what looked like an almost always pained expression. He didn’t look so tense anymore, what with how he was turned on his side, facing Dean as he slept, and slightly curled in on himself. His hand was resting beside his head on the pillow where his head rested, twitching a bit in reaction to what Dean assumed was a dream of some sort; eyes moving behind his lids.

The wrinkles on his forehead, and entire face in general, looked smoothed out, making the man look younger than he really was now that he wasn’t permanently making a face that was practically blank but very nearly a frown.

Cas’ hair and outfit was amiss to its usual tidiness. Not that he was wearing all of his usual attire or had his, what Dean liked to call sex hair, well kept. The Winchester had convinced him, somehow, to at least take off his shoes, trenchcoat, and black jacket underneath it before the man finally hit the hay and succumbed to the call of sleep he so desperately tried to avoid as much as he could before he passed out unwillingly from exhaustion.

Castiel had told him it was nothing, but Dean knew better than that. Of course he did. This was Cas, he liked to think he knew him a little more than he let on sometimes. Dean assumed it was nightmares. Cas has seen a lot throught his millenia of existence, and, now that he was human for the time being, it would be a little odd for him to not experience at least a few nightmares in his dreams. He was a hunter too, Dean remember, and being a hunter didn’t exactly come without the oh so lovely luxury of suffering in your sleep as well as being awake.

Dean frowned at that. Why did life had to be so fucking cruel? Couldn’t it give them a damn break every once in a while? If anyone deserved it, it was definitely them.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case, and, soon enough, Castiel’s blue eyes flew open wide, quickly taking a sitting position on his bed, hand clutching the pillow that had been resting there a minute ago with a strength that should have tore the god awful casing on the pillow; breathing coming a bit more shallow and faster through his nose.

Dean tore his gaze away from Cas, as if to not let the other know he had been staring.

The Winchester sat up easily, looking at Cas with concern.

“You okay there, Cas?” His voice was quiet, trying to mind that Sam was in the room right next to them and could probably hear them in the shitty motel they were in for the time being.

Cas swerved his head in Dean’s direction, now, visibly sagging in relief when he saw the man was okay.

“Yes, Dean, I’m fine.” Cas sighed, running a hand over his face to rid it of any grogginess or left over panic.

Dean arched an eyebrow at that. Cas knew Dean was aware of how that was absolute bullshit.

Rolling his eyes, Dean scooted over on his bed, moving over to the other side of it and lifting the blankets.

“Come on, Cas. You need to actually sleep instead of waking up and just staying up until me or Sam get up. It’s not good for you and it’s definitely not helping us on this hunt.”

“You and Sam do it all the time.”

Dean snorted. Trust the no longer angel to make witty comments at this god forsaken hour. He didn’t fall into Cas’ attempt to distract him from the matter though. This has happened far too often for Dean’s liking, but who was he to not make sure the people he cared about were okay? He’d done this for Sammy plenty of times when they were younger. Why couldn’t he do it with Cas too? If it worked, hey, he wasn’t complaining. Especially when it got Cas to get a good night’s sleep and they could get the hunt done and over with in no time and Castiel wasn’t a grumpy ass the entire time. It lead to getting back to the bunker faster after all and they could all sleep in their own beds. That on itself was an automatic plus.

Huffing in faux annoyance, Cas flung his own blankets off of himself, rising to his feet and padding over to Dean’s motel bed, sliding underneath the still lifted blanket, and laying down.

“Come here, dumbass.” Dean said exhasperatedly, tugging Cas closer to him. The nightmares wouldn’t keep at bay unless Cas was curled up close to someone, that someone fortunately being Dean.

The only thing Dean recieved in response was a grunt and Castiel doing as he was told; head resting on Dean’s bicep where it lay as a pillow for him and one of his hands clutching onto Dean’s shirt.

If Sam had saw them do this any other time, he never said anything, and that was enough for them to keep resorting to this form of comfort.

And, hell, maybe it was a little more than just comfort, but none of them had admitted it to each other, nor themselves, but that was okay. Maybe when things weren’t so damn complicated they could figure things out, but, for now, this was enough.

Soon enough, however, Castiel’s breathing had long since evened out, signaling that he had fallen back asleep once more, hand loose on Dean’s shirt and merely resting on his chest now.

The green eyed man turned his head, trying not to jostle Cas too much as he tried to adjust himself to get more comfortable, and looked at Cas, sleeping soundly.

He was so relaxed. And Dean swore it made his soul sing to be the only one to see it.

I am literally shaking out of anger right now.

How can people be so ignorant, so rude, so heartless and disgusting. Is that all that they can do?

Recently there have been some really unnecessary comments going down about Mamamoo, saying how “Mamamoo would be a pretty group if it weren’t for Hwasa”, multiple comments even targeting Moonbyul. Hwasa addressed the situation by saying “There were a lot of harsh comments insulting my character. I wasn’t shaken at first but, when I kept seeing them, it hurt”

Mamamoo has even gone as far as to say “In reality, we aren’t pretty and we’re short so we had to succeed with our skills”.

Mamamoo didn’t deserve this. They’re so hard working, so passionate about their work. They put in everything that they can into their art and people am have the audacity to bash them over something so superficial like their looks? Is that all Knetz care about? It’s sad you know.. Finding out your favorite idols feel this way.. It’s so sad to see these comments go down and you can’t say or do anything..

Why I Have To Meet Jack

You guys may well think I’m silly for writing this post, but I’m going to anyway. I have thoughts and I need to get them out. I’m a firm believer in writing down your emotions rather than bottling them up. 

Anyway. If you’re tired of my complaining about not meeting Jack, then I won’t blame you for scrolling away from this right away. Feel free, or you can carry on reading. But not only am I saying the obstacles that are in my way, I’m also writing exactly why meeting Jack matters so much to me. I’ve broken it down so hopefully it’s easier for you guys to read.

I know I’ve posted about this a billion times before, but I feel the need to do it again. I kind of stop thinking about it, and then something reminds me again. I see gifs from PAX, I read about people meeting him. I’m happy for everyone who does, but I’m reminded that it hasn’t happened to me and maybe never will. I feel selfish for thinking this, but I can’t help it.

Just wait, it will happen, I hear you say. But that’s easier said than done, for a number of reasons. If it was just as simple as being too young to go on my own or whatever, then yes, it would only be a matter of time. But it’s not.

First of all, I can’t afford to go to conventions (particularly so if they are in another country, and I’m yet to find one in the UK that Jack goes to). I currently don’t earn, and even when I do it won’t be much - musicians often don’t earn much at first, and I’m not making anything from YouTube “yet” (I hope I will but it may never take off for all I know. I can’t rely on it).

Then there’s my current mental state. Going to a convention would be difficult thanks to my wonderful social anxiety. Just the thought of the crowds, the people around me while travelling… And I imagine that travelling, and the convention itself, would take a lot of energy - possibly too much for my depression to handle. Maybe I could push through it to meet Jack, but I don’t know; would it be worth risking putting myself under too much pressure?

And that’s not all. Oh yes, there’s more. Getting to another country is difficult for me for another reason. I can’t do it by myself. Yes, I’m 21 years old and I don’t know how to go through an airport by myself. I feel stupid. Not just because I’ve never learnt how, but also I struggle with things like that. I always have. I’m particularly brilliant at getting lost. My anxiety loves it, not.

And there’s more. Since I’ve started watching Jack, I’ve been at university/college so I haven’t had the time to go away to conventions. Once I leave here in a couple of months time (*panics*), I will be focusing a lot on YouTube, and probably having to find a job (yawn). And until I find one and have money, I can’t go even if I have the time.

This may well sound like I’m making excuses, but honestly… I’m really not. I wouldn’t. This is something I need to do in my lifetime, it’s a dream of mine. Jack is my hero. I have no reason to make any excuses. These are all genuine barriers to one of my life goals. Obstacles that feel insurmountable. And it breaks my heart. It breaks my heart to think that I may never meet the person who began to turn my life around. It breaks my heart to think that I may never get to thank him in person for what he’s done. It breaks my heart to think that I may never be able to hug him. He feels like a long distance friend - or even family, if I can say that. Jack means the world to me. More than he’ll ever know - but if I meet him, I can get closer to expressing it than I can from here.

I have thoughts about what I would do if I did meet Jack. I already know that I will make a folder or something of stuff I’ve made for him (fanart, poems, etc) and I’ll give it to him. And, of course, I’ll give him the biggest hugs he’s ever had. I’ll do my best to let him know what he means to me. I’ll tell him about how he’s inspired me and that my YouTube channel is beginning to grow thanks to him giving me the courage to make more videos. I was anxious to go on camera, but he made me brave, and now I love it immensely and want to do it for as long as possible.

Jack is not just a YouTuber to me. He’s been a counsellor when I’ve needed advice and someone to care. Jack has been a friend when I’ve felt alone, believing in me even when I didn’t anymore. He’s been a beautiful green light in the pitch black void of depression and anxiety, the hope I needed when mine was all gone. 

He’s been like an annoying older brother who makes stupid jokes to make you laugh - which means even more to me as one of my older brothers, who made me laugh a lot, is no longer with us. He’s been someone to watch playing games now that I can’t watch my brother play them anymore.

He’s been a lullaby when I couldn’t sleep, cradling me with kindness and wrapping me up in smiles and laughter. He’s been a soothing voice amongst the painful noise of life. He’s held my hand when I’ve been hurting, wiping away the tears from my eyes. He’s started to heal the cracks in my heart and mind. When I was starting to lose sight of anything good in life, having less and less reasons to smile, he showed me that things weren’t so bad after all. He taught me to genuinely smile again.

And Jack is the reason why I found this wonderful community, and have made amazing friends who have made me feel cared about. You guys have made me feel less lonely despite the isolation of social anxiety and depression. Without Jack, I probably wouldn’t know any of you exist.

Jack is my hero.

I need to meet him some day.

I have to.

Bonnie’s Ships

Okay, I decided to make a post on Bonnie’s ships. None of them are Anti because I do genuinely see the appeal in all of them. There is not one Bonnie ship that I actively detest and create Anti posts about them. If I was reading an ensemble fanfic, I would care who Bonnie was with, as long as she’s happy.

FYI: The order is Beremy, Kennett, Bamon, Bonkai and Bonenzo if anyone just wants to go to their ship, I think that’s all her ships. I apologise if I omitted any out, just let me know and I will add one.

Beremy:

Originally posted by vd-gifs

To be honest, this wasn’t an awful ship. When they first got together, I thought it was cute - it was the most human relationship in the supernatural show. But then…Ghost! Anna happened. Now I loved Jeremy and Anna as well, they were sweet but I hated how Jeremy cheated on Bonnie with her and frankly it ruined this ship for me because Bonnie deserved better. The writers then brought them back together in a very lazy manner because once they got together, they were barely a couple - now in real life this would be good, since they aren’t experiencing any drama, but not only was there zero focus on the ship (unlike other secondary ships) but the writers constantly split Bonnie from the main storyline. The end of Beremy just didn’t really register.

Kennett:

Originally posted by thegoldenbonbon

Sorry, Kennett shippers, I tried to find a good gif for you guys but couldn’t find one. So here it goes, I like this ship. Nate and Kat had great chemistry, it was a shame that the writers didn’t explore that. Yeah there reasoning was bullshit (since they didn’t have a problem with Davina being with Kol), they should have been honest and said “We are keeping the shows separate, Kol belongs on The Originals!” - What was great about this pairing was that you have the bad guy/good girl dynamic but the bad guy doesn’t change. He’s still bad, but it was the kind of bad to everyone else except you. As I said, it’s a shame it wasn’t explored, especially since I read that the actors wanted it. But for all you hardcore Kennett shippers - count your stars lucky, by S5 the show was out of it’s doors in the show’s popularity and writing. Look at the mess of later seasons and some of their ships. At least in headcanons, fanfics and fan art - the writers can’t ruin it for you.

Bamon:

Originally posted by queenkatherinepierce

This is a tough one because I am Anti-Damon (Sorry folks, he just gets away with a lot of unforgivable crap) but I am fond of Bamon. These characters do have chemistry, however I’m not sure if it’s the romantic kind - sometimes characters have chemistry as friends but as soon as they go from friends to lovers, the chemistry dies - Out of context, this could be a ship I could ship, they have a beautiful friendship and their prison world storyline was better than the main one. However, in context, I feel a conflict because as I said, I’m not Damon’s biggest fan and Bonnie use to very strongly hate him, there are some stuff that he did that should be unforgivable, especially since before she felt strongly about it. I think if the show followed the books, Bamon could have been a great ship, but with all the stuff that happened in the show (and how the writers brushed over it), I prefer their friendship.

Bonkai:

Originally posted by malachai-latte

Okay, this was Kat’s strongest chemistry with any of the actors. This could have rivalled some of the biggest ships on the show. I think it has to do with their dynamic. Bonnie has been through so much crap in her life, she’s always expected to save the day and make sacrifices and never gets the reward she deserves, as a result her character has become quite serious, she’s had to grow up more than the rest of the characters. Meanwhile Kai is a psychopath, but he’s fun and he plays into that dynamic really well and Kai did become the strongest part of S6. However, I think as the season went on, the writers kept digging this hole for Kai to fall deeper and deeper in, narratively it got to the point where he couldn’t be redeemed. But there was that point where he could have become an Anti-hero. Again, other issue was with the writers, Bonnie refused to believe that Kai could be redeemed because of all the bad stuff he in, but she has no problems with forgiving Damon. This will be one of the biggest what ifs, because on chemistry alone, I ship it but on context I don’t. 

Bonenzo:

Originally posted by dont-you-forget-about-me17

If you’re still reading this, then thank you for staying with me. Anyway, now onto Bonenzo, or is it Bonzo? Anyway, to make it simple, I ship it. When they first happened, I found out from a friend since I was on a hiatus from the show and I first thought “Wtf?” They barely shared any scenes before and I honestly thought that if they were going to put Enzo in a ship, it would be Caroline (Carenzo are a BrOTP of mine). But anyway, I never understood it, then I hear about the one episode about it and slowly I got it. I think this is down to Michael and Kat’s real life friendship as they give a real human aspect that other The Vampire Diaries ships (I know I said something similar about Beremy, but with Bonenzo, you don’t forget that they’re together) don’t since they are too focused on the supernatural or having angst. Now, I wouldn’t say their chemistry is on fire, but they have a sweet chemistry, it’s impossible to not root for. These two, like many of Bonnie’s ships were robbed (especially since we were promised a big season for Bonnie in S8). I’m bitter about Enzo’s death, these two had probably the most mature relationship in all of The Vampire Diaries AND The Originals.

Moral of the story: BONNIE WAS ROBBED AND DESERVED BETTER

anonymous asked:

I'm trying my absolute hardest to be positive, or at least open minded about Jack but it's really difficult. Can you help?

I’m not sure what it is you are unhappy about… because Jack embodies all the things I find most exciting about the story unfolding for TFW so I’ll do my best!

In my tag #jack the nephilim you will find loads of stuff but yeah… the general gist from me is that I believe Jack represents the CATALYST and EXPOSITION for TFW’s stories next season and leading towards their positive endgame.

I don't know if you read my meta on Amara as a massive exposition to Dean’s emotional journey but this is along the same lines, basically most side characters end up giving us expositions to TFW because they are the ones we care about! Jack just embodies all 3 which is freaking fabulous!

They need something plot wise to push them in the right direction and he is literally it.

Jack is a mirror for all of TFW in different ways and the way that he deals with these things and the way that they help him deal with them will allow them to deal with those things themselves. 

It’s the “see one, do one, teach one” scenario which is a psychological sales technique that says that a person only truly understands a concept if they can teach it to someone else. Through teaching these things to Jack and seeing it have a positive outcome for him they will learn that these things are good for themselves and continue down that path themselves.

1. Jack is a mirror for Sam in that he is expected to fulfil Lucifer’s expectations regardless of what his own choices would be. Lucifer doesn’t expect him to be his own person, just to do what he wants him to do. I therefore hope that he won’t. (Pushing this even further perhaps Jack not only will defy Lucifer but also step up and become a leader himself of Heaven/Hell? What a mirror in that case!).

2. Jack is a mirror for Dean in that he is expected to fulfil his father’s expectations and not make his own choices or have any emphasis on himself, what he wants, just be a good little solider and do as he’s told. I therefore hope that he won’t. (Pushing this even further perhaps Jack may learn not only this but also some things about himself and learn to embrace them, perhaps Dean will help him with one of these things?! I mean… I can just see Jack being like actually I’d like a strawberry milkshake not a coke…is that for girls? And Dean is like no dude just have it if you want it…then a little sideways smile to himself. Argh ok now you’ve got me totally wildly wishing away but yeah, who knows after season fanfic 12 :p).

3. Jack is a mirror for Cas in that he is partway between Heaven and Earth (and Hell but mainly Heaven and Earth given he’s half Angel half Human). I mean DUDE he even LOOKS LIKE CAS while Cas is dead, he’s supposed to be a mirror, I’m living. Months ago I wildly wished without any hope that Jack might do a little head tilt and remind Dean of Cas, and now here he is all dressed up like him… I mean how much more can we wish for?! He’s going to be a HUGE exposition for not only Cas’ story but also Dean’s grief. I’m living!

Anyway, aside from this yes he’s a huge Cas mirror in himself. He needs to learn who he is and what he is, he needs to learn that who he is is more important than what he is, that his choices are what makes him who he is.

So… Jack has already been set up as embodying all of TFW’s core arcs. Regardless of whether he ends up being bad or good he will be key as an expositional role for what he mirrors in them. For me whether he ends up bad or good basically depends on how long the show will go on for, if it’s ending soon he will end up good, if it isn’t then they have to subvert it all and keep them all miserable and repressed for a while longer so he’ll end up bad.

As I keep saying, the themes of Supernatural are not particular to Supernatural, they are themes that are in a lot of modern culture these days: CHOICES, LOVE, FOUND FAMILY…

e.g: (I feel like I’m going to be using this gif a lot this season :D)

So yeah… Jack is going to be a CATALYST to their stories, he’s not replacing anyone, he’s not there instead of anyone, he is there as an EXPOSITION to core things about the characters we already care about :)

If on top of that we start caring about him as his own character then great! But that’s not imo what the point of him is to start with, its all about this ^^^

I guess we make a really good team.

Fifth Year | 11″ Beech, Unicorn Tail Hair, Supple | Ravenclaw Prefect | Bat (Patronus) | Pureblood | Legilimens (special ability) | Transfiguration, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Herbology (best subjects) | Im Jaebum (boyfriend) | Mark Tuan & Choi Youngjae (best friends) | Leader of the Silver Spears | Chess Captain

  • Savage AF
  • Seriously, you need to understand how savage this boy is. The sheer amount of sass is overwhelming
  • When him and Mark get together you better just keep your distance because ISTG they’ll sass you into oblivion
  • Park Jinyoung is easily the poster child for Ravenclaw. You can often find him with a book or two always on hand.
  • He aces every test and his mind is as sharp as a blade
  • He can probably outwit you without even looking up from his book
  • The sorting hat shouted out Ravenclaw before it was even properly situated on his head, okay?
  • He’s a touch devious, but don’t go thinking deviousness is only for the Slytherins - although Jinyoung is typically more playful but still
  • He practically lives in the library
  • If you can’t find him, that’s probably where he is
  • On the rare chance he’s NOT in the library you can check the greenhouse (he’s usually there with Youngjae)
  • He was chosen as prefect by the Head of House. He’s aiming for Head Boy…because it’s Jinyoung.
  • Listen, Jinyoung’s uniform is spotless and perfect. He looks like a freaking prince, okay? PERFECT.
  • When his resting bitch face isn’t in play you can usually see him with a knowing look on his eye and a small smirk that resembles the attitude of a cheshire cat.
  • Jinyoung just KNOWS something that you don’t. All the time. Or at least, it’s just best to assume so.
  • He is a leader of the Silver Spears with Mark. He’s also the chess captain.
  • To be honest, the poor boy needs a good challenge in chess. With the exception of Mark, none of the other students can beat him.
  • But Mark only plays when he’s in the mood. Whereas Jinyoung plays all the time just because. So the boy needs a challenge SOMEWHERE.
  • Jinyoung is friends with the centaur pack that lives in the woods. They’re very like minded, or so Firenze says.
  • Jinyoung is not particularly enthralled by divination and astronomy, but he certainly sees the logic and usefulness of it. That’s typically how he is with most subjects.
  • He’s probably going to become an Unspeakable for the Department of Mysteries. So he PREFERS to have information (even if it’s only a little bit) on almost every subject there is.
  • Jinyoung is a legilimens. Which basically means if he wants to he can read your mind or plant ideas or false memories into your head. The only people that can keep him out is an occlumens.
  • To be fair, Jinyoung doesn’t ever read someone’s mind without their permission. He feels bad otherwise. But still. The point is he COULD if he wanted to.
  • Jinyoung’s the ‘mom’ of the group. He takes care of everybody and also does a lot of the disciplining when Bammie and Yugyeom start acting up.
  • He swears they’re going to give him gray hair but he loves them to pieces.
  • Choi Youngjae is eternal sunshine and Jinyoung is determined to never let that light dim. He has such a soft spot for that boy.
  • Mark is his best friend. Mark is probably the only one who can mentally keep up with Jinyoung at times. Their friendship is probably the most complex out of the entire group TBH.
  • They’re the pair that has conversations without saying a single word. The eye contact is real between these two, okay?
  • They contrast enough that it works though. Mark lives on coffee and hates tea. Jinyoung prefers tea and tries to stay away from all that caffeine, for example. But they’re similar in enough ways too.
  • They both have zero tolerance for bullshit or for their loved ones being hurt.
  • If you manage to have both Jinyoung AND Mark on your ass for hurting someone they love…just….do yourself a favor and kill yourself before they get their hands on you. They are fucking TERRIFYING together, okay? TERRIFYING.
  • Mark has taught Jinyoung some basic non verbal magic and Jinyoung has taught Mark some basic legilimency. Because sharing is caring.
  • Markjin is basically best friend goals. Okay?
  • Jinyoung is extremely supportive. He’s 10000% certain that Jaebum is going to become Head Auror, that Jackson will become a professional Quidditch Legend, and that Mark can not only master non verbal magic but wandless magic too. Trying to tell Jinyoung otherwise is basically a suicide mission.
  • Like I said, he’s the mom of the group and even though his ‘children’ piss him off to no end sometimes, they’re still his kids. So if you touch them, if you hurt them, if you threaten them – just run. There’s really nothing else I can say. Just fucking run. Fast.
  • Jinyoung will not put up with your shit. Most of his patience goes towards his academics and his circle of friends that tend to act like toddlers. So he has NO patience left over for your bullshit.
  • Rational thinking 101. You can’t win an argument with him. He’ll win with logic and reason two minutes into the conversation and leave you feeling like an idiot child.
  • Don’t bother him during exam time. He’ll set you on fire. I’m not kidding.
  • Jaebum is the love of his life. He’s aware that people don’t understand WHY. He also doesn’t give to shakes of a rat’s ass WHAT people think.
  • Jaebum comes off as cold and uncaring, but Jinyoung gets to see Jaebum when he’s soft and full of love.
  • When he covers Youngjae with a blanket so he doesn’t get cold, when he refills Mark’s coffee because Mark needs it or he’s going to crash
  • When he ruffles Yugyeom’s hair and wraps an arm around Jackson’s shoulders, the struggle he goes through when he protects Bammie.
  • And the way he loves and protects Jinyoung no matter what.
  • He sees all of that and will protect that image at all cost. Trying to tell Jinyoung that Jaebum is a bad person is a sure fire way to get yourself landed in the hospital wing.
  • He the CUTEST smile and eye crinkles. If you see them, congratulations, you’ve been blessed.
  • Jinyoung is fierce and beautiful and passionate and intelligent and ethereal and you can see it from a mile away. He’s a deep thinker with the force of a hurricane in his soul.
  • Basically, Park Jinyoung a badass mofo. You want him as your friend - not your enemy. Okay? Okay.

*pictures and gifs aren’t mine. i made the moodboard but the pictures i got off of tumblr and google. credit to their respective owners.

I know I haven’t written anything yet besides my Raw liveblogging yells, I’m not used to do it cause first of all there are people who do it way better than me, and secondly because I always need some time to process what I’ve seen, especially in these last months, so I rather spam your dash with gifs and edits and leave text posts to others.
This time is different, though, because I really have too much stuff to get off of my chest. Because basically the booking that Dean and Seth are getting is way more than everything I’ve been dreaming about in two years of delirious Ambrollins fangirl headcanons. Because that night of July 2016, while crying real tears over my boys being split by the draft after a few months from Seth’s return and a glorious but too short feud, I couldn’t imagine at all that they would have ever had such a great storyline just a year later. Because Dean and Seth being tag team partners on their own and chasing the titles together was something too big I never dared to dream for real.
Seth said too many important things in that promo. He exposed Dean’s feelings as only he knows how, with that Seth Rollins’ cockiness that he still uses as an armour to look strong and not emotionally involved… but Seth is just as weak as Dean when it comes to his wrestling soulmate. He didn’t do all this to manipulate him for other purposes, cause he’s not the one to become Grand Slam champion if they’re going after the tag team titles. And he wouldn’t have borne so many continuous rejections if it wasn’t about Dean Ambrose. As I wrote previously, Dean was the pivotal figure to definitively legitimate Seth’s face turn: he made several steps in that direction so far, but that wasn’t enough… he needed Dean to redesign, rebuild and redeem himself.
“A look at your eyes tells me that you’re lying, cause the truth is, I know you care, and I know you know that if we teamed up again, we could run this place. […] Maybe our differences is why we work so well together, maybe that’s why that whether we’re fighting against each other, or especially WITH each other, there’s nobody that can touch us.“
Seth talked directly to Dean’s heart this time, not to his guts. And when he thought there was nothing else to say and do to convince him and turned away to get out of the ring, Dean held him. That was the moment my heart stopped beating for a while. The most. Beautiful. Moment. Ever.
And then, they started to fight. Cause none of them can get over it. They kicked the shit out of each other like during the good old times of their feud cause they still don’t know what their feelings are, but they still have a lot of them for each other. It was damn intense and touching, I was breathless for the whole time. And when Cesaro and Sheamus interrupted them to throw them off, those deep feelings came out again. Dean’s face when they were both punching Seth was something I won’t ever forget: for the first time in years, he truly realised they were attacking not the guy he has been constantly bickering with for the last three years… they were attacking his brother. And Seth, like Dean, went immediately to his rescue when they were on him: they both fought like lions to protect each other and this time it wasn’t about proving something: it was the protective instinct coming out, it was about being one the shield for each other.
I’m so grateful for all this. I’m incredibly happy that the ones they’re feuding with for the titles are Sheamus and Cesaro, cause it has a symbolic meaning: they became the most threatening tag team of Raw starting as enemies who through time turned into good friends, which is basically what is happening to Dean and Seth. But Dean and Seth have a way deeper background story, and them being on the same page again after going through all this is the ultimate step for being actually ready to challenge their opponents.
And this isn’t even the best thing of the whole story, cause what is making it really EPIC is the fact that the whole WWE universe has never been so invested as much as it’s being invested into this angle. Since I’ve been a fan, I’ve never seen the crowd cheering a friendship this way, and actually the only time I’ve witnessed so much hype was when they had their last feud before the first draft. Because haters can blabber whatever they want, Seth himself proved them wrong with that last promo, saying it loud and clear: whether they’re friends or enemies, Rollins and Ambrose make fans’ hearts beat faster. And there’s something else that speaks volumes about it: Seth, the Man, Raw’s first choice, hasn’t been involved in the main title picture for almost a year now, and many may think that him and Dean being reduced to a tag team could be a a downfall for two main eventers like them; yet, his last tweets about it are clearly showing how he’s being genuinely HAPPY of his booking. He’s happy to be side by side with his Dean again and he just can’t hide it, and none can say this is just “fanservice”, cause everyone knows the numberless times he talked out of character about the special bond between them two. If this isn’t the greatest thing that WWE has given us in years, I don’t know what to say.
