i still a fool for you

anonymous asked:

I'm just curious are you as pissed as I am that Oliver didn't notice Felicity making wrong choices until Rory pointed it out and even then he hasn't really talked to her about it?

Hi nonnie! ^^
Hmmm, I think Oliver did notice something was really off about Felicity in 5x11, even before Russia:

But then Olicity is not as close now as they used to be; I think they obviously still have that connection which makes them partners, and of course they are still in love with each other (and fooling themselves with the whole trying to move on thing) but they don’t talk about their problems with each other? Basically the writers are stalling because they think the show needed it I guess. But hopefully they are building up a storyline and when Felicity really goes on her own “dark path” and this blows up, at the end Oliver will be there to support her like she always supports him.
On another note, I think there are too many storylines this season, so there’s no time to explore everything, and this way we can only thank Stephen and Emily for their amazing acting, when they put so much more meaning in a single glance than a thousand words.

So… I guess we have to wait for a scene where Olicity finally have a decent conversation about this.

happy 23rd birthday, jung hoseok / 94.02.18

“I can still clearly feel the sensation I felt when I practiced barefoot. The feeling of my body and the floor becoming one was very impressive. I looked incredibly sexy while I practiced the stage, haha. I’m a person who concentrates into one thing when I fall in love with it. This applies to BTS promotion and also when I love someone. I think love is something that turns us stupid. When you fall in love, you become a fool who only knows one person, right?”

Fidel Castro: Dictator NOT a Revolutionary Leader

As a Cuban refugee I rejoice that the symbol is dead. But I still know that the ideology is very much alive. 

Fidel Castro has terrorized us for years. And now the day has come, he is dead. But nothing has changed my fellow Cubans who have remained will continue to endure the regime and swallow the renewed hope that has come with these news. 

And here I sit, watching people (Read: Non Cubans) mourn the death of a “monster” as stated by his own sister, Cuban exile Juana Castro. Castro was not a good man.

He ripped families apart. He took our liberties. He silenced our people. Do not let the media fool you into thinking he was a President or cared for anything but the success of his regime. 

Here is just a small list of what Castro has done:

Mass executions of counter-revolutionaries by Castro’s firing squads. An estimated 30,000 deaths solely from this since he came to power. 

He shut down all independent newspapers upon his rise to power. 

He held over 15,000 political prisoners. 

He created re-education camps for LGBT to correct ‘deviations’. Effeminate males were heavily prosecuted without trial or charge. as well as forced incarceration for anyone that tested HIV positive. 

One July morning in 1994 a group of 72 Cubans boarded a state-owned tugboat (named 13 de Marzo) with the intent to navigate it to freedom. Within minutes the vessel was under attack by other state-owned tugboats. By the time the incident was over 41 Cubans were dead. 10 of them were children.

Denied the right to vote against Castro and his party in ‘free elections’

Castro formed Committees for the Defense of the Revolution(CDR) which operate on almost every block in Cuba. Spying on neighbors and reporting back to the regime. Negative reports can land one in jail.

School children ‘pray’ to Castro. 

Ordered doctors to inject mercury into patients who criticized the poor quality of Cuba’s free medical services

All media is heavily censored and the spreading of “unauthorized news” a criminal offence, with internet access heavily limited by cost and restrictions. (To give you an idea my family members in Cuba could be sent to jail if they were caught corresponding with me via e-mail)

Prior to January 13, 2013, Cuban citizens could not travel abroad, leave or return to Cuba without first obtaining official permission along with applying for a government issued passport and travel visa, which was often denied.

Following the Cuban Revolution all activities of the catholic church were severely limited and in 1961 all property held by religious organizations was confiscated without compensation. 

Castro’s regime violates almost every single article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 

His regime has led to an estimated 3 million Cuban’s (more than 25% of the current population) fleeing the country due to persecution since taking power. 

But enough of this.

Today I am grateful for the strength and bravery of my mimi and papi who refused to conform to living under a communist and totalitarian nation. I am thankful that though fear clung to their bones they left everything they had in the hopes of freedom, in the hopes of a better life for me.  Today, I am thankful to hear my mom’s voice break with the strengths of her sobs. Today, I am thankful to see videos of my fellow Cubans embracing each other, crying, waving our flag, dancing, and singing (Our beautiful La Bayamesa).

There is still much work to be done. But today, I leave you with the words of Willy Chirino:

“Hoy que mi pueblo vive ilusionado yo me siento inspirado y un son estoy cantando anunciándole a todos mis hermanos que nuestro día ya viene llegando…”

Studied in bed today bc I’m still sick (´A`)
I have only ever posted chemistry notes but don’t be fooled, chem isn’t my fave subject, maths is 😂

I’m not sure why people apologise for their inactivity on tumblr. Since we are studyblrs we are probably actually studying. Just remember that y'all are not obligated to post x amount of times a week or anything, please don’t feel guilty, just sayin’ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you ever need someone to talk to, I’m always there for you ♡
After the heartbreak, I promised to never be that girl again.
I fulfilled the cliche-
I cut my hair short.
Something to mark a new beginning.
I got a tattoo with no real significance.
Most things in life don’t make sense anyways.
I moved further away from my parents and it was more than a metaphor.
I’ve learned that life is harder without the people who love you and returned to sleep in the bed that held me far longer than you ever did.
I don’t miss you anymore.
You still act weird around me, sit in the corner of a room and pretend that I do not exist.
Some days it feels as if I don’t.
There is no one here to love me like I deserve to be loved.
My voice is still not loud enough to be heard over all the background noise.
My friends are fixated on superficial things.
A love that doesn’t last.
A party last weekend where they fooled themselves into thinking alcohol tastes better when you are hurting and fell asleep on the couch of a stranger.
This is a measurement of how much ache we fail to acknowledge.
How many things we kick underneath our doormats just to prove that there is a way to keep moving forward.
If there is a way to keep moving forward,
for me, it has never looked like this.

Your senior year roommate calls herself Clarity. She’s very small and rumpled and distant, and she goes for long walks in the forest south of campus when she’s frustrated. You aren’t friends, but you coexist peacefully. It’s enough.

The creature on your co-owned Walmart futon isn’t Clarity.

It looks like her. Enough to fool a casual observer, certainly. Enough to fool someone who hasn’t been soldering sterling silver for six hours. But you have, and the truth of silver lingers, and the Thing That Looks Like Clarity is sprouting delicate flowers from the skin of its bare shoulders.

It’s sitting cross-legged and perfectly, terribly still, tracking your eyes as you take all this in. When you sigh and set down your backpack, it says, “Hello, smith. There didn’t seem to be any sense in pretending.”

“Jeweler,” you say, and, “I go by Florence, these days. What should I call you?”

It blinks, languid and slow. “I’m not here to usurp. I’m a… placeholder.”

“It’s still confusing as shit, my guy.”

It considers this at length. Finally, with the air of one who has just solved a great puzzle, it says “Claire. We will know, the two of us.”

“Works for me. Nice meeting you, Claire.”

And that seems to be all there is to say. Your roommate’s been stolen by the Fair Folk, you’re living with a changeling, and there’s not much you can do about either of these things. You scroll through Instagram until it gets tired of watching you and wanders out into the hallway.

So that’s Claire.

anonymous asked:

Hi dear! First of all I love your ff! It's my favourite one of all! And I love that you don't hold back that Victuri not only show, but tell that they love each other. do you think that in case of season 2 they might tell each other how they feel by words? I am not one of those fans that can't believe what I see unless they tell each other straight(gay) out! But something in me is still in denial that a major plot twist could be like "lol we fooled you guys regarding victuuri" what do I do? 😭😭

(Thank you - I’m having fun writing fic for the fandom! Winter Song is actually crafted to fill in the blanks that you’re questioning, so hopefully it helps settle your mind a bit.)

As for your question, I don’t think we’re going to get a “haha we fooled you!” message from the creators. Victor and Yuuri’s romantic relationship is canon.

What I think some people are struggling with is that the main storyline of Yuri!!! on Ice is not about romance. It’s a sports anime, and skating has always been and always will be the main focus. 

The subplot of Yuri!!! on Ice is the coach/student relationship. This is why we’re only shown scenes where Victor and Yuuri discuss that part of their relationship. The skating is always the focus because that’s just what the show is about. If you’re looking for an anime that explores romance, this isn’t it. So no, I don’t think we’re promised any blatant “I love you” scenes in the future. 

HOWEVER. 

That doesn’t mean the romantic relationship isn’t there. It is so there.

I honestly do not understand how people can look at that screencap above and fail to see the physical and emotional intimacy these two young men share.

Like. *rubs temples* Their lips are literally an inch apart. (Seriously … why would Yuuri’s family be so shocked to see these two hugging? They hug all the time.)

Every. single. scene. we get from Victor and Yuuri is the type of stuff the fans of many 100% confirmed canonical relationships never get to see on screen.

Victor and Yuuri’s intimacy is palpable in a way rarely seen in other media.

What we’re shown in the anime are two men falling in love, and Kubo-sensei has given her audience clear evidence of that relationship should they wish to see it. It’s canon.

The kiss has been confirmed. They share hotel rooms now. Their beds are pushed together. In what world do adults in a platonic relationship give each other gold wedding bands? And kiss them in front of an audience?? And grab each other’s neckties??? And kiss each other’s skates???? And run into each other’s arms in an airport after a very brief separation?????

Do you know how intimate it is to have someone kiss your hand like this?

Just take a moment to imagine your last coach or teacher doing that to you. Imagine your best friend doing it.

Really feel it. What it would be like to have someone you’re in a platonic relationship with bring your hand to their lips and hold it there for several long moments.

Their warm breath. The feel of their lips. The way their eyes close and their brow creases like their heart is aching.

Kind of a weird idea to think about your BFF doing it, right? Personally, my mind would immediately jump to the conclusion that they have a raging crush on me at the very least. Hand kissing like this is extremely suggestive of romance.

I’m just scratching the surface of the physical and emotional intimacy evident in this anime. It is SO EASY to imagine Yuuri and Victor kissing and saying “I love you” after the credits roll in the later episodes. That’s what the creators have given you … when they didn’t have to.

I would encourage you not to expect Yuri!!! on Ice to be something it’s not, or you’re never going to be able to truly enjoy it.

(Don’t you want to enjoy it? It’s fun. I promise.)

Alternately, if you expect nothing more than a sports anime and are instead given all this wealth of intimacy and romance, you will be HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY.

I love you still but you know how in movies people get angry and hateful after they got hurt?
Well I wish I’d be like that too but here I am writing about the galaxies and oceans I saw in your blue eyes and how I saw all the sadness behind that twinkle everyone sees when you smile, all the sadness you cover up with humor and sarcasm, fooling everyone that you’re the most care free person walking in this planet, fooling everyone but me.
Why not me? because I spend enough time getting to know you and I came to the point where I know you better than myself or at least I knew you because thanks to your actions I don’t know anything at all anymore.
You completely destroyed that little piece that was left of me, what I’ll never understand since your heart is made out of gold even though you would never admit that because that wouldn’t match your asshole image which you’re so proud of, you apologized for being one but you’re the one who decided to become one.
I still love you though, more than anyone and anything, I thought I was something special to you but I guess all I am or was to you is a broken girl with more illnesses than friends and more love to give than you could take.
I love you still even though you crashed me completely, I didn’t deserve the way things ended because they never ended, you kept me waiting while you went and found yourself someone new, while I was breaking down, crying and crying and begging for you to stay as if as soon you were gone I’d have stopped breathing but that’s exactly how I felt and still feel, like dying but dying would be better than this because my heart stopped but nothing else has, the world is still spinning.
But hey what’s new? finding someone better isn’t hard especially someone better than me but I’d still rather tear myself apart than see you looking at her with the same smile you gave me, I saw a picture of you last night and oh god i broke down to the point of feeling the heartbreak, feeling the pain in my heart physically but I love you still even though we’re completely strangers now and you left me with my heart, left me with this ache in my chest for forever, forever that’s what you said but forever seemed so short don’t you think?
I love you still and I can’t put in words how much because nothing on this planet can describe the love I have for you.
You were my home and now i’m homeless but I love you still and forever and pray for your happiness still every night.
I love you still.

Part 1
More doodles from my other fantasy au i did for fun ~ 

Drawing 1: There was a big argument at a bar about Victor being an imposter but Yuuri just left and sat outside on a bench where a masked men followed him and asked what he personally thought.
Like i already said,Yuuri still isn’t convinced that Victor fooled them all.(just like Phichit and more)

D2: The man visits him again for some reason??

D3: It’s a world where you should never ever trust someone who’s masked, I promise it ends to 83% deadly.

D4: Yuuri doesn’t have much time until he has to move to layer 4 (because he has not enough money anymore), a place even worse than where he lives now already.There will be almost no freedom.

D5: Just like Victor, Yuuri is secretly a skilled fighter and could do great things to make the empire a little better but yeah, he lacks confidence…

I wrote you a book but you only read the first page and thought you had me figured out. I undressed my soul for you and you laughed at it, like it was some kind of funny joke. And I’m still praying that you kept your heart to yourself, that you are still willing to give it to me. Love makes you happy until it makes you a fool.
