i started crying while i was making this

nio-kun  asked:

a situation where nijimura's crush (not a couple) is seen to be breaking up a fight that haizaki started (with some random other person is fine, or a named character) and while she/he tried to break it up gets hit on the lips and starts bleeding, but still tries not to cry. while this goes down nijimura walks in. then.... i dunno nijimura does somethin romantic and cheesy? he kisses their injury to make it feel better? something cavity inducing and fluffy?

You were walking down the hallway talking with your classmate, when you heard a commotion not too far in front. Recognizing a silver haired teen, you let out a sigh out and looked at your friend, who was scowling at the fight.

“I will be right back,” You gave them a small smile and rushed to two teens that were looking down at each other despite their heights that were same. “Haizaki,” You called, but you knew he won’t hear you as he always ignored everything upperclassmen said until certain someone appeared, which, at the moment, was something you could only dream as he had a meeting with the rest of classroom presidents.

“You want to fight, huh?” Haizaki asked, his snarl heard down the hallway as his opponent replayed with a remark that made his blood boil.

If you knew Haizaki well, you knew he hated one word out of all he was called. Puppy

Your eyes widened, some students taking a step backwards, knowing that if you ever call him puppy you wouldn’t be walking away whole and without broken bones. No sooner were the chants heard, rooting for Haizaki, some rooting for his opponent, but neither trying to break them free.

With a groan and pinching the tip of your nose, your thoughts ran from and to before you did what no one would. Try to break up the fight.

So let's say one has already fallen in love with the entirety of Glory Days, and let's also say that one should no longer be allowed in public with earbuds because one can't help performatively strutting to the bus stop while blasting Power. What should one be listening to in the Little Mix back catalogue?

wow yeah i mean totally hypothetically speaking because this isn’t me (us, really) as HELL we’re totally chill when we listen to Power in public

  • Boy - some inSANE harmonies and so bad ass
  • Move - it’s just catchy as all HELL AND SO FUN TO DANCE TO!!

So I’m making a very pro Zack Snyder post right now because something I don’t see people acknowledge very much about him is how much all the actresses he’s worked with really like him and have consistently praised him.

This is Hollywood. A lot of actresses don’t have good experiences on films. Directors will belittle them, make them cry, put them in situations that make them uncomfortable, etc. So I have found it interesting for a while how much actresses who have worked with Zack clearly like him, because a lot of women in Hollywood will either call out unpleasant directors, or just keep silent about them, rather than saying anything bad. Zack’s actresses, across the board, seem to really like him.

Don’t worry. I have receipts. Let’s start with Sucker Punch, shall we?


Emily Browning repeatedly praised Zack on the press tour for Sucker Punch. She even went as far as to say he gave her her love of acting back.

“At one point I was [doubting that I would continue with acting] and actually this film, to be honest with you, is the one that’s brought me back and made me realize this is absolutely what I want to do. I have faith in this industry, if a movie making experience can be this positive and this much fun, then I can’t imagine ever doing anything else.”

For video reference, here’s a video of Emily and Abbie Cornish. They start talking about Zack at around the 5:00 minute mark.

“He keeps the set really fun and light and positive. I mean, obviously when we were doing our emotional scenes, he was really super respectful of that.”

Just wanted to point out from that what Emily is probably referencing there are the scenes of sexual abuse her character faces. You don’t think it would be asking a lot for a director to be respectful of those scenes and their impact on the women performing them, but unfortunately it sometimes is, and from what she said, Zack obviously is respectful of her while performing those scenes.

Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, and Vanessa Hudgens also praised him a lot here around the 4:30 mark.

Moving on to 300, Lena Headey was the female lead in that film (it’s worth noting that Zack expanded her role greatly from the graphic novel, where her part was extremely minimal) and she, like the others, had many kind things to say about Zack at the beginning of this interview.

“He’s so enthusiastic and it’s kind of infectious to be around that. And he’s got such a clear vision and knows absolutely what he wants to bring to the screen. So it’s great to have a leader like that.”

While on the San Andreas press tour, Carla Gugino, who worked with Zack on Watchmen and Man of Steel, expressed interest in working with Zack again in the DCEU at 1:07.

“I would go anywhere with Zack Snyder, do any movie with him and Debbie.”

So now for the DCEU actresses. We can start with Amy, as she’s said many sweet things about Zack. Most recently she discussed how it was difficult for her to see Zack take so much heat for BvS. It’s at around the 40:00 minute mark in this podcast.

“I just felt for Zack,” Adams says. “Zack’s like the nicest person ever, and to see him kind of talked about like that was really hard for me, because he’s really such a respectful director.”

There’s that word again. “Respectful.” Amy has been pretty candid in the past about working with directors who she didn’t get along with or didn’t treat her very well. With Zack, she’s only ever had nice things to say.

Now for Holly Hunter, she starts discussing him at the 1:00 minute mark.

“People have a fabulous time on this movie because the atmosphere is very creative, very respectful, and at the same time playful.”

Somehow I’ve gotten the impression that the women on his movies have never felt disrespected by Zack given the constant use of the word “respectful.”

So of course we have to hear from Wonder Woman about Zack. She starts talking about him at 1:38.

“He’s so women friendly. He’s very into women empowerment, and I think that for him, personally as well, it is very important to show a strong female on the big screen, that is equal to the other heroes.”

Lastly I’ll link Diane Lane’s interview, where she talks about Zack at 1:45.

“It’s so wonderful to work with Zack, who I trust implicitly, and has all the answers. It’s so wonderful to be able to trust him.”

So basically with this I wanted to say if you don’t like Zack Snyder as a director, that’s fine. No one is obligated to like a director’s movies. But I feel like the attacks on Zack Snyder have become downright personal, and that is ridiculous. I think it’s rather sad that a director that the media and some fans have decided to target is a director who treats his actresses with respect and clearly goes out of his way to make them comfortable and collaborate with them and actually care about the women in his movies.

There are not very many action film directors today who I feel care a whole lot about women, and Zack is one of the few, and I wish that was appreciated more. But instead I still see constant personal attacks that he does not deserve.

Pro-choice people make me so sick sometimes. I know I’m not the only woman who has ever suffered a miscarriage, and I know I’m not the only woman who may never be able to have her own children without adoption.

But no. You can’t even face a 9 month consequence to your actions and make a childless family feel joy again.

I can’t stand it some days. Some days I see “pro-choice” videos and I cry. That BABY has just as much of a right to life as you.

And God knows I’d gladly take that baby from you if you don’t want it. I love babies, I love children, and I honestly do love people. I get angry sometimes, and I vent about the stupid choices people make, but I still have a love for people that I want to instill into some of the next generation.

And while I’m here, praying every day that when I want to start a family I’ll be able to, there are women having abortions just for the sake of convenience.


I did another sigil hand sanitizer thing! Last time it was for cosplay funsies, but this one is for work. I start a new job tomorrow and happened to have this “Chill Out” scented hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works floating around (I always end up with so much hand sanitizer)

For those who didn’t see my first one. Their labels peel back to reveal more detailed chemical information, which makes for a very good place to hide a sigil. Now every time I use this hand sanitizer throughout my shift I’ll be reinforcing the sigils effects on me.

Plus I’ll have a fluorite heart in my pocket.

I’m bound and determined to not cry while I’m on the clock.

He goes through three random duffel bags before he finds what he’s looking for. Just as he’s about to make his move, Katsudon decides it’s the perfect moment to take a break from practicing the fastest step sequence anyone’s probably ever attempted and come off the ice to hang out for a bit before I meet Victor for lunch, it’s been a while since it was just us. And of course he immediately zeroes in on the lighter in Yuri’s hand, because there is a helicopter parent trapped inside Katsudon’s chubby ass that finds every opportunity to come out and make Yuri’s life a waking nightmare. 

“Yurio,” Katsudon gasps, positively breathless with disappointment. He looks like he’s two seconds away from crying, turning himself over to the police for gross negligence, or both. “Have you started smoking?”

I can’t guarantee that I won’t break your heart, but I promise that if I do, I didn’t mean it. I won’t ask you to buy me expensive things or take me out on dates—I won’t make you feel like you are entitled to be my personal credit card. I won’t sit on your lap if you’re angry or start tickling you if you’re sad, we’re not going to just ignore the problem. I’ll wait for you to talk and won’t interrupt you until you are finished and have gotten everything off of your chest. I’ll let you cry, but I’ll hold you while you do so. I won’t ask you to tell me anything you don’t want to until you are ready, because I know trust is a difficult matter for some of us and that’s okay. I won’t expect you to text me long paragraphs every morning and every night, a simple word is enough for me. I won’t ask you to love me if you don’t, because I want you to be happy, and if it’s not with me, then so be it.
—  I won’t be the lover you forget
I still can’t believe this.

I found out something so incredible and unreal today? I’m shaking as I type this and I’m going to try to explain it in the best way possible …okay so last month I bought my parents tickets to a twenty one pilots show because they’ve really grown to like the band which makes me happy. Anyways my mom was picking me up today and saying how excited she was for the show and how she went on the facebook page for the radio station the show’s going to be at and one person commented “21 pilots? don’t you think thats deceiving? there’s only two of them” and I said “ugh I hate when people say that, they don’t even know the meaning behind the band’s name” so my mom asked what the meaning was and I told her about the play and how that tied into the meaning…while this was happening my mom’s eyes got huge and she started to cry and I got confused as to why. it didn’t make any sense to me so I asked her if she was okay and then she started to tell me a story…

so my mom’s a nurse and has taken care of many many many patients and she obviously can’t remember all of them. She starts to tell me about how a few years ago she was taking care of an elderly man who suffered from severe panic attacks as a result of PTSD. The man was an airplane mechanic for the military in WWII. My mom would sit with him and hold his hand and talk with him through his panic attacks. She learned a lot about him and his past. The man was an airplane mechanic and in charge of assembling airplane parts. Once, he noticed that the parts he received were faulty and told his boss immediately, expecting to have to stop production, however his boss instructed him to still use the parts and assemble the planes. The man was really distraught because as it turns out, the planes he assembled crashed as a result of the faulty parts which resulted in the death of “over twenty pilots” (he would say this a lot))(my mom had heard this story over and over and over again). A few years later the man could no longer take his panic attacks and PTSD and ended up killing himself. My mom had never forgotten this mad and he was actually her favorite patient. She would sit and help him through his panic attacks, even off the clock. His death had always affected my mom deeply and I distantly remember her being really upset over his death. Obviously this isn’t the protagonist of the story, but this man definitely played a part and it affected him deeply.

At first I thought my mom was joking, this couldn’t be, it was too similar. Too unreal to be true. I didn’t even think that All My Sons was based off a true story, but I looked it up and it was a true story. My mom and I started crying and freaking out because it was such a coincidence. This is my favorite band, and a story they were built upon. They helped me save my life and this story is very close to my heart(i have tattoo that expresses the moral of the band very closely tied with the story of All My Sons). This is so unbelievable and warms my heart. All i know now is that I connect with this band more than I ever thought possible.

Lee Jinki: That moment when you’re laughing so hard that you start crying. Staying up late at night to watch your favorite TV show or read a book. Eating your favorite food after a long while without doing so. Getting those butterflies when you see a stranger and they’re cute. That moment when you take off your clothes after a long day and it just feels nice. Summer dates with lots of popsicles and music. Relaxing mornings when you just feel like everything is how it is supposed to be. That warmth that goes through your body and makes your heart race when you talk about something that you like a lot. When someone teases you and you just laugh because they’re right. Not wearing any makeup as you lay in your bed with your closest friends and eat whatever you could order for takeout. Doing something and then realizing it was stupid so you laugh at yourself.

Kim Jonghyun: When you listen to that really old song that you used to like and you learn to love it again. That moment when you see a picture from your childhood and you just laugh because it’s ridiculous. Reaching a goal and then being so happy about it because you did it. Looking at things and realizing how the most simplistic of sceneries can hold so much beauty, just like the moon or the sun. Mischievous smiles that hold a joking manner as you get ready to surprise someone. That eye roll thing you do as you smile when someone says something that it’s stupid but you can’t help but think it’s cute because they’re so wrong but they sound right saying it. Pastel colors as a meaning of fluffiness and softness. That feeling you get after a really long, great hug and you just feel like you took a weight out of your shoulders. When you see a really cute puppy/kitten and you can’t help but change your voice.

Kim Kibum: Laughing loudly because it was funny and you can. Wearing your favorite piece of clothing and feeling like it looks so good on you so you feel good with yourself. Doing something great for somebody without expecting anything in return, just because. The sound of water as the waves hit one another when the sunset is barely appearing. Laughing at your mistakes and rolling your eyes when you find out that you’ve changed and it was probably for the better. Having really long conversations about anything and everything with someone that actually listens to your point of view and gives you theirs without hurting any feelings. Eating your favorite dessert and enjoying it to the last bit. Singing your favorite song in public and not giving a damn if someone listens because it’s your song. Travelling, whether it is to that city right beside you or another country, just travelling around the world.

Choi Minho: Running, not for the sake of exercising, but simply because you enjoy it and you want to feel like you can do it all. That moment when a really cute kid passes by you and you smile brightly because they’re cute. Feeling free, like you were just the person you wanted to be and the only one you have to make happy is yourself. Blowing kisses and giving really warm hugs to that person you love. A first time of everything, because it’s never too late to learn. That moment you just sit down to watch your favorite show or just search on the internet and you lost track of time. Not having an answer to everything and laughing when you don’t know what to say. Really big sweaters that cover you completely. Nights of autumn with lots of hot drinks and the smell of cinnamon. Really dumb jokes that make you laugh like an idiot. Looking at your friend as if asking for help when you don’t know what to do.

Lee Taemin: Trying your hardest in everything you do and seeing something come from it. The color white, not exactly for the meaning of purity, but honesty and humility. That moment when your heart feels warm when you look at what you’ve created in your life and you’re truly thankful. Variety, not letting a concept take over your life as you try everything and anything just for the sake of looking for that special aura of yours. Eating a lot after a long week and just smiling to yourself because everything just tastes amazing. Those really quiet laughs that go unnoticed but are the most pure and beautiful. Fingers going through each other’s hair to soothe the other’s pain, showing love and support. A look in someone’s eyes that shows determination and mystery, the best of everything in just a pair of eyes. Slow, melodic songs with some hidden message behind them, a meaning that no one will ever know.

“Derek? Its me Will.  I’m sorry for calling so late.  I got a new phone, cos I left mine at home. Um…I told my brother, but it didn’t go well, so I left….um. I’m staying at the Haus for a while.  I’ll see you when term starts again, yeah?  Call me, I need to hear your voice. [muffled sniffling and possibly crying].  I love you.”


“Will?  I’m sorry for calling at 4am, I thought you might still be up.  I’m not leaving you there alone babe, no way.  I’m coming to Samwell.  See you in a  few hours.  Love you”

piggiesaregreen  asked:


Oh my god my heart here we go: 

  • who’s the one to wake up the kids: This is usually Hernando because he’s the #ResponsibleParent but sometimes it’s Lito and it’s not on purpose it’s because this guy has gotten bad news and is being Dramatic and yelling in the morning. 
    • “…………bad day papa?” 
  • who makes the breakfast: Hmmm I feel like both do this. Lito’s usually getting all the drinks and making sandwiches (he makes them very specifically for the kids; he’s even bought bear cutouts so he can make the sandwiches into cute shapes) while Hernando is frying something up and brewing some coffee for him and Lito.
  • who’s the one to cry for everything: Haaaaa we all know this is Lito (and Daniela, who definitely offered to be their surrogate the second they started thinking about having children). 
  • who’s the more discipline parent and who’s the more lenient one: Hernando is the more disciplined one but even then he’s pretty open to his kids and will explain why they can or cannot do certain things - Lito’s more lenient but if it’s something like dating or going away for long periods of time his explanations for why they can’t turn into him stuttering and freaking out. 
  • who helps with the science fair: Hernando helps with the construction, and Lito helps with the actual science because this is Kala’s time to shine and she’ll help her cluster kids with everything and be the super proud auntie/parent who proudly shares their creation with everyone else. 
  • who does baby talk: Liitoooooo
  • who wakes up for midnight feedings: Hernando does this more, even though Lito tries, bless him. 
  • who’s the one who always worries: Oh my GOD so Hernando is a quiet worrier while Lito is outwardly worried (so Hernando calms himself down by calming Lito down). 
  • who picks up the kids early from school for some fun: Okay honestly yes I can see Lito doing this but you know who I see doing this the most? Daniela. She definitely picks the kids up just for fun or because she was bored. 
  • who’s the competitive parent: LIIIITOOOOOOOOOOO 
  • who kisses the ouches: Awww Hernando definitely does it 
  • who’s the sucker for the puppy eyes: Hernando is the sucker; he knows they’re playing him but he can’t help it. Lito falls for his kids being Extra and Dramatic and using his own lines against him because he’s so Proud™. 
  • who makes the “dad jokes”: I feel like Daniela would do this? She’d make dad jokes on behalf of them all the time. 
  • who embarrassed their kid for fun: Mmmm I feel like Lito would do it but accidentally
  • who’s the over protective one: Lito! Granted he has cause for it with Whispers out there but in general he’s just super protective. 
  • who’s the “take a sweater!” parent: Hernando! When his daughter was an infant he dressed her almost entirely in sweaters tbh.

25 Days of Outlander Day 11 - Favorite Emotional Scene

There is something so quietly beautiful about Claire’s arrival home from L’hopital after her miscarriage. The soft piano of Faith’s theme, the overcast lighting of the courtyard scene, how little dialogue there is. I have yet to make it through that scene without crying––even just watching briefly to take the screen grabs I started to cry. 

Fergus helping her out of the carriage, giving her someone to lean on physically as she makes her way through the lines of servants…

Suzette with her heart breaking so obviously for Claire, reaching out but unable to find words for her mistress (and friend)…

And of course, Magnus––Claire refusing to let him bow to her and instead thanking him for all he did for her, curtseying to him while he succumbs to a few tears of his own (wishing he could have done more for her)––all while Claire remains as stoic as she can, silent tears running down her own face. 

The Choice

TITLE: The Choice

CHAPTER NO./ONE SHOT: Chapter 1 of 2


Imagine your family disapproving of your relationship with Loki and demanding you choose between them and him, and you instantly choose Loki.


Imagine you proposing to Loki, instead of the other way around.


I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for a really long time, finally found the inspiration to sit down and write it thanks to these two prompts. Got a bit (okay, a lot) longer than I expected, so I split it into two chapters. Hope you like! And if you don’t… oh, well. I guess I’ll go cry in a corner or something, I dunno.


    Evelyn knew from the start that being with one known as a God of Mischief wouldn’t make her life any easier, but one can’t really choose whom they fall for. And while Loki could be a handful; he was always good to her. They had their ups and downs like any other couple, but overall their relationship was a very good one. There was only one thing that they couldn’t get past: Evelyn’s reluctance to introduce Loki to her parents. She always came up with some excuse not to and it was beginning to really bother him, especially since he had actually taken the time to introduce her to what passed for his these days, even if it had been a two-minute meeting and they’d never gone back afterwards.

    They stood in their bedroom facing each other, Loki’s arms were crossed over his chest and he wore a deceptively angry expression, though Evelyn could see the hurt behind it after he’d voiced the accusation that had taken root in his mind. Evelyn’s own expression filled with guilt that she’d let it get that far and she ran her tan hands through her copper hair with a sigh.

    “Loki; I’m not ashamed of you. How could you even think that? I love you!” Evelyn said earnestly.

Nights of Ramen (and Other Little Things)

Right now it’s around 2am, and I am awake. My seven-year-old has a sore throat, and I just tucked her back into bed. And I find myself thinking about my friend @derdoktorsschnabel who is preparing to become a dad next Spring. 

I had already brought my daughter some cold water and a cough drop when she woke up coughing earlier tonight. This second time she was apologizing for waking me up again, but started crying and saying that her throat still hurt. I quietly lead her out of the room where her younger brother and sister were sleeping and took her into the kitchen. She said she was cold, so I got her one of my way-too-big sweatshirts and put it over her, with the hood up. Then I announced that I would be making her some of Dad’s Magical Healing Ramen. 

I put some water on the stove to boil, and chatted with her while I made the Top Ramen. I let her choose whether or not I would add an egg (she wisely chose “yes”) and also choose which flavor we’d have. When it was ready, I put an ice cube in her bowl, and told her to stir it around until the ice melted all the way. 

We sat at the table eating ramen together and talking while we ate. We talked about how ramen comes from Japan. She asked me if I knew where potato chips came from, and when I admitted I didn’t know, she said that she did and she’d show me the answer in a book tomorrow. I told her how ramen broth always makes my throat feel better when I’m sick. We kept chatting like this until my wife woke up and caught us in the kitchen with our Magical Healing Ramen. She gave our daughter a hug, and gave me a smirk. 

Finally, I gave my daughter an extra cough drop in case she woke up again, took her back to her room, and helped her straighten out her blankets and tucked her in again. 

OK, so here’s the point I want to get to. There’s a lot of pressure today when it comes to being a parent. Pressure to make every adorable crafty thing on Pinterest. Pressure to make every costume and lunch at home from scratch. Pressure to avoid any food remotely considered unhealthy. Pressure to follow the latest cognitive development routine to make sure your kid has learned calculus by the time they’re out of diapers. 

But the truth is, SO much of that is just chatter and noise. It’s easy to think that every kid wants a huge trip to Disneyland, or a massive tree house built in their backyard, but honestly what your kid really wants is just time with you. It’s the little stuff, accumulating over time, that will stick with them. It’s nights of ramen, and funny stories from your childhood, and letting them “help” with changing the lightbulb, and sitting on the swing next to them and talking about their day. 

I might be getting a bit overly sentimental and rambling right now, but I think that’s OK sometimes. That’s what kids do to you. They force you to get tired and dirty and frustrated and scared. And you learn to still be yourself anyway. 

Bottom Line: You’re gonna make a great parent. Don’t worry about it. Just do your best, relax, and just let the little things fall into place.
