i made a sort of happy

oh oh oh you know what made me smile today!!!!! I was sorting out racks of clothes and it was around the time school finished and I’d been at work for like 6hrs+ aka ready to die and these two teenagers came in and the boy was like “omg look at this highlight I just bought” and he was so excited and it warmed my heart when the girl was like complimenting him on it and he was just so excited and happy, it made me smile aND then he was giving her fashion advice like “oh yeah that’d look really nice with some denim jeans” and I was like I love this kid and idk it just made me so happy he was being himself and not afraid to be interested in topics society deems “female” orientated. It’s also kinda the first time I’ve heard a guy be into makeup, like when I was at school girls even got picked on for talking about makeup, so it’s fucking amazing this generation is so open and breaking stereotypes

itty bitty angsty song sketches i did while listening to ‘Dear Happy’ by Dodie Clark, who’s my go-to artist for all things bittersweet :’) The whole idea of the song (as far as I understand it, at least,) is someone singing a duet with happiness itself. I made the mistake of listening to it while doing soumako doodles, and, well…. OTL

“What I say about being happy is that I am ‘also happy.’ I’m happy among other things. Happy is one of the many feelings or experiences that I will have throughout a day. I think happy has been sort of made into this Hallmark card of a word, and I don’t know what that means. So I will just say that I enjoy my life, I make choices, I do what I want to do. I am a strong person, I’m not afraid of almost anything, and that’s a lot because of your example.” 

I hate how d&d made arya into this ‘not like other girls i hate women’ thing when literally book!Arya LOVES HER FELLOW WOMEN. She makes friends with all sorts of girls, the prostitutes at Happy Port, the daughters of sailors, she respects and loves all sorts of different women, she loves and looks up to her mother and wishes she could be more like them. 

She respects their skills and beauty and goodness, she just acknowledges that she cannot be like that due to her own inabilities to conform. She wants to be good at sewing, she wants to be able to sing, she wants to be beautiful like her sister and mother, but she also feels completely inadequate and awful in comparison to all the women in her life. So what does a 9 year old do?

A 9 year old calls it stupid because calling it stupid hurts a lot less than admitting that what people criticize about you the most are correct. Like lmao if your skillset lies in horseback riding, sword fighting, and other non-traditional activities for women, are you supposed to silently suffer ridicule and a life of non fulfillment? 

People who treat Arya like a crappy cliche literally have 0 understanding of her character.

It’s love. We first met when we were 15. It took another 15 years for us to sort it out. She’s an incredible woman, very special. So the fact that she said yes was a huge deal. I was in a boys’ school and she was in a girls’ school. They were doing a charity fashion show. They brought some guys over. I will never forget I was this pasty boy with freckles. I had to walk topless in the show for this school of girls. As I walked off the stage, the entire school erupted [in applause because] the best-looking guy in the school walked on. It was a very scarring moment. But afterward at the party, I saw Hannah across the room. She was very beautiful, kind and very funny. [I learned that] we had similar interests, that she loved the arts, theater…all the things that were important to me. When Hannah and I finally got together years later, I had finished rehearsing ‘Les Miserables’ and was about to start shooting it. I had four days off, I was going to Florence by myself—slightly sad. Hannah and I went on a date just before I was to leave. We had known each other for a long time, but not closely. I was like. ‘We had a wonderful evening. You wouldn’t want to go to Florence next week, would you?’ She was like. ‘That’s absurd.’ I was like, ‘No, no, no.’ She said, ‘You don’t mean that.’ I was like, ‘I do.’ The next morning, I sent my easyJet booking form to her. She let me stew for a few hours, and then she sent back her easyJet booking form. So our first proper date was in Florence, and that felt quite crazy.

Reaction to Yuri on Ice EP9

Episode 8 wasn’t as gay as episode 7 but I think episode 9 made up for that. 

The ending scene where Yuri was already in the airport made a lot of people hold their breath. I for one didn’t expect anyone to go to him in the airport because in episode 1 no one picked him up so I thought it would happen again. BUT NO! When I saw Maccachin I knew Victor was there!

When the Camera showed Victor he did not have the usually smile or happy aura around him. It was like he was in deep thought until Maccachin became excited by seeing Yuri. Vitor seemed like a totally different person when he was waiting, besides his happy aura he sort of looked like a mess. Not the drunken mess but the mess that involves a lot of thinking or even over analyzing. Was the separation for him that hard? 

Victor’s expression here looks so real, it was like you haven’t seen the one you loved in a long time and you don’t know what will happen with the two of you now that they are back. Compared to couples who could be having a long distant relationship and have been separated for years or months, Yuri and Victor have just been separated for 2 days and he is already so worried. I never thought I would see Victor with this much emotion, it felt so real.  

When they were running they didn’t break eye contact with each other. It can be seen that Yuri didn’t expect Victor to be there to pick him up but when he saw Victor it was like a dream come true, he really didn’t expect him to be there at all. The fact that they didn’t break eye contact was like they were so relieved that they can finally see each other again after being apart for so long (Which was only 2 days) . This scene alone really made it seem like it was happening in real life by just the emotion the viewer can feel. 

When Victor was waiting for him with his arms stretched out it was just like a scene from real life where you are waiting for your love ones. It really looked like Yuri was about to cry when he saw Victor waiting for him with his arms spread out. Victor looked like he was still dreaming and couldn’t believe that Yuri was finally back home.

The look in Yuri’s eyes were the look as if he couldn’t believe Victor was there. It really showed all the worry he had while being away from Victor. It was like all the emotions or feeling he has been keeping in since Victor left where now coming back up and making their way out of him. He had so much pent up feelings that it was about to burst but being in Victor’s arms seemed to make it all go away little by little. 

The look Vitor had here was like he was relieved with what Yuri requested. It was as if all the things he was worrying about and thinking about were all put at eased when Yuri asked him to be his coach until he retires. It was a huge weight of Victor’s chest because he was so confused on how to become a better coach to Yuri. 

Over all this episode had the most emotion in it. It may look like a regular episode but when this scene hits you it can’t help but make you really feel what they are feeling. It was like the scene was pulled out of a movie or a real life situation.

what I want from the ghostbusters sequel is erin and holtzmann canonically dating, but I want it to be subtle. I want no explanation, no interlude, erin and holtz are just dating in the next movie. no gay panic, no beating around the bush, they’re just already dating when the movie starts, and we can sort of tell but then it’s made official when they share a casual kiss goodbye or something of that nature. I don’t want it super sexualized and I don’t want it super cliche and ugly and like BUT I’M STRAIGHT!!! no I just want it to be just like they introduce straight couples in movies. I want it normalized and I want it casual and I want it now.

If this rain pours on top of my head

I’ll probably get drenched, even my heart…


Stay around…

I’m still young and a bit scared to be getting hit by this rain alone…

Even though I know it will stop soon, I’m still looking for you.


Stop now.

Will this all cease?

This rain, my tears…

I don’t want to get wet from the rain and shake from the cold…

Sometime, really…

This very cold rain may turn into warm tears and trickle down.

It’s okay… it will be just be a short downpour that will come and go…


It’s just a downpour that will graze by… it’s that sort of emotion…


I really won’t lose the many happy memories that have been made after meeting you to the rain…


When this pouring rain stops, let’s meet again…

Let’s smile again and stay together.


Stop now.

Will this all cease?

This rain, my tears…

I don’t want to get wet from the rain and shake from the cold…

Sometime, really…

This very cold rain may turn into warm tears and trickle down.

It’s okay… it will be just be a short downpour that will come and go…


Right now, I’m just getting drenched…

I don’t even have the strength to open an umbrella…

But we know…

We’ll cry for just a little bit…

We’ll depend on the rain, so you can’t see our sad tears…


Now it’s our time to say farewell…


Stop now.

Will this all cease?

This rain, my tears…

I don’t want to get wet from the rain and shake from the cold…

Sometime, really…

This very cold rain may turn into warm tears and trickle down.

It’s okay… it will be just be a short downpour that will come and go…

After my teacher introduced us to this theory, she asked us, “is love a feeling? Or is it a choice?” We were all a bunch of teenagers. Naturally we said it was a feeling. She said that if we clung to that belief, we’d never have a lasting relationship of any sort.

She made us interview a dozen adults who were or had been married and we asked them about their marriages and why it lasted or why it failed. At the end, I asked every single person if love was an emotion or a choice.

Everybody said that it was a choice. It was a conscious commitment. It was something you choose to make work every day with a person who has chosen the same thing. They all said that at one point in their marriage, the “feeling of love” had vanished or faded and they weren’t happy. They said feelings are always changing and you cannot build something that will last on such a shaky foundation.

The married ones said that when things were bad, they chose to open the communication, chose to identify what broke and how to fix it, and chose to recreate something worth falling in love with.

The divorced ones said they chose to walk away.

Ever since that class, since that project, I never looked at relationships the same way. I understood why arranged marriages were successful. I discovered the difference in feelings and commitments. I’ve never gone for the person who makes my heart flutter or my head spin. I’ve chosen the people who were committed to choosing me, dedicated to finding something to adore even on the ugliest days.

I no longer fear the day someone who swore I was their universe can no longer see the stars in my eyes as long as they still choose to look until they find them again.

Whenever I see your picture or hear people talk about you, my breath always catches in my throat and I’m struck by this painful twinge that twists my sides and brings the stinging of tears to back of my eyes.
It’s the thought of you being happy and living your life… imagining you laughing and joking with other people that hurts… Don’t get me wrong – I still care for you and the thought of you being happy makes me happy… but at the same time it makes me sad.
Because… life goes on, or at least it did for you and being confronted with your happiness makes me feel like I made no difference to your life… as if there was never any point in me being in it at all. You were happy before you met me and you’re still the same happy person now even though I’m gone.
I know it’s foolish to wish I had meant more to you… that my absence would change your world or have some sort of lasting impact so I shouldn’t be surprised to learn that the day we said goodbye wasn’t devastating enough to make the world stop turning for you…
Not like it did for me…
—  Ranata Suzuki | Your Life Went On Without Me

*collapses* I’m finally done…I can’t do this anymore QAQ. Curse my lack of art skills!

Anyways, I know I’m a little late to the party, because I’m a slow drawer and wasted 2 hours because my computer decides to shut off on me because it hates me, but better late than never I guess XD

Happy Halloween everybody~

Ok I’m happy for the gency lines and all but can we get some development for Mercy before the ship is made canon bc I wanna know more about her, like what part of saving Genji was she a part of, what sorts of technologies have her discoveries lead to, what was her time with Overwatch like, what did she do after Overwatch’s collapse, how closely is she tied with Reaper’s current state,

does she have a dog

As part of the lgbt+ community episode 7 has legitimately made me cry; finally having this sort of relationship without it being fetishized, having a genuine healthy and romantic love between victor and yuuri shown and told in such a sweet story; it really is making me so emotional to have this kind of representation in an industry that is known for queer-baiting and not taking queer relationships seriously. This is such a move forward and i’m so happy and proud of yuri on ice
