i want to grow up to be her!

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Maggie Sawyer told us that being a non-white, non-straight girl was hard when she was growing up. She probably got bullied when she came out and now we find out that she didn't willingly come out, she was outed. She was already so far gone for Alex that all she wanted was for Alex to do things at her own pace and be accepted and loved in the way she never was. Can someone please hold her forever and love her unconditionally

Also I know I never stop talking about how much I love my choir director but every time we do group concerts or workshops with these really pretentious egocentric male conductors I love watching her just swoop in and gather us up to make amazing and humble music while they mutter at the back of whatever cathedral

She’s this tiny intense french woman who drinks a lot of coffee and walks around whacking a tuning fork on everything and she’s who I want to be when I grow up

Do you know what really irks me? Stupid people. In this case it has something to do with some  Antifa/BLM organizations helping get a Marduk show cancelled. The reason? They believe that the band is racist. I’ve read their reasoning and it’s some of the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard. Most of their accusations stems from the Marduk’s use of WWII imagery and lyrics which have absolutely NOTHING to do with racism by the way. It’s like saying that if you have an interest in the war or perhaps Nazism (I’m talking about being interested from a historical standpoint) then holy shit, you must hate and want to oppress blacks as well as other ethnicities. My own mother had quite a bit of books on Hitler as well as WWII in general years ago but does this mean she was racist? Fuck no. She was, and still is as a matter of fact, a very open and non-hateful person. Growing up I always heard her discuss her distaste of racism and encouraged us not fall that sort of stupidity.

If any of those people who helped stopped the show (and especially those who issued threats) are reading this, I have some parting words*:

Youtuber, Myke C-Town, reviewed Marduk’s last album and loved it. He also recently attended one of their shows. Guess what? He’s black. I severely doubt he would listen to a racist band, don’t you?

The band’s antichristian stance is NOT a cover up for anti-Semitism. They simply dislike Christianity. Get over it.

I just happen to have some Marduk albums and I can tell you this much, I’m not even remotely racist and as I have clearly stated above I don’t believe the band is either. The proof you have that Marduk is a Nazi band is extremely flimsy.
If you use violence to try and get your point across then doesn’t that make you an asshole? Just saying.


And lastly, suck it.
 


* Even though law enforcement was involved I’m not blaming them for this fiasco. They were just doing their jobs and wanted to keep people safe.

anonymous asked:

Why be upset with the Anon? She's trying to protect you. It's not about writing Lucifer, people can do that. It's about trying to be all about Pellegrino. That's your blog. People sending her Asks saying when they see Pellegrino they think of her.... I bet anon thinks they should be thinking of you. Toni needs to move on and things will be fine.

I don’t need protecting. 

And do you know how many Pellegrino blogs there are out there? I don’t WANT to be the only one. I spend so much time scrolling through other Pellegrino blogs because they are all individually awesome!

I am thrilled that Toni is so amazing that when people see Pellegrino they think of her. I think that’s fucking great and a huge accomplishment for her as a blogger and a writer! It’s amazing to see how much she’s grown since she started here and I am so freaking proud of her!

Toni does not need to move on. You anons need to grow up. She is doing nothing wrong, that blame falls on you guys for starting this shit in the first place.

Seriously, please. I am literally begging you, stop. Stop this nonsense now. It’s gone on way too long and you are literally ruining Tumblr for so many people, me included.

Hey. Consider this me Liking and Reblogging all of your posts, a hundred times over. This is incredible. This is amazing. You write the characters very well, and though LIsa had nearly no dialogue in-game, your representation of her just FEELS spot-on. It is all very fitting for LISA and this is just wow. And the custom sprites! This is hugely impressive. Good luck with all of it. You're awesome!

mfw

no but seriously

I didn’t want to respond to this at first because I didn’t want it to leave my ask box.  I really appreciate hearing that.

Lisa’s character was largely inspired by her portrayal in LISA: THE FIRST.  I try to portray some of her implied ego with a bit of bitterness that’s grown over years of, y’know, being dead.  Plus, the Armstrong Dorkiness.  I’ve said it before, that’s a constant.  It’s not going anywhere.  Not even Kiddo will be safe from it growing up.

More characters are gonna be introduced pretty soon, some more important than others, both in respect to the LISA franchise, and to MOURNFUL specifically.

I can’t WAIT to see how you guys react to Kiddo’s story going forward…

Ok this post is mostly for me figuring out why I self harm no need to read if that stuff freaks u out. Also obviously you never need to read my posts whatever ok. So I don’t really cut anymore cause my therapist said I needed to call her if I was going to and I’d literally rather die than reach out to her for help. So I just scratch my wrist like my left wrist is always raw and usually bleeding ugh. And ok what makes me want to. Feeling trapped feeling embarrassed thinking about the past or the future. Nostalgia. Hallucinating (in this case it’s to ground me almost hm). Anger at others or self. Worrying about growing up and other like fears, but not really things like agoraphobia which i struggle with. And then guilt over feeling positive emotions. So basically it’s just any emotion that’s too strong ? Hm

I was thinking about how there are probably homeless wizarding kids in the Harry Potter universe. Muggleborns specifically. Their parents don’t react positively to a magical child. They don’t see a gift or a miracle. They see the devil. So they throw their kids out. I picture a ministry group in charge of taking in and caring for homeless magic children. They just when they get the message a kid has magic but no address they send people out to find them. They get taken in my the ministry or adopted by wizarding parents who want to adopt a magic child.

Specifically I would like you all to picture Luna Lovegood taking in rowdy formerly homeless magic 10 year olds, getting them ready for Hogwarts, and sending them letters on the time. They call her mom. They live with her durinng the summer. She is known for her generosity and gentleness. Picture little gryffindors wanting to hear all about how she knows Harry Potter, little ravenclaws discussing riddles with her, little hufflepuffs saying they want to grow up to take in kids just like she did, and little slytherins getting her help on their work so that they can be the very best. Picture please Luna Lovegood being Mama Bear for like 14 formerly homeless magic children.

endless list of favorite characters + Haley James Scott

“ I’m usually one of those people who likes the first day of school. You know, new pens, new books, new backpack. A nerd. Exactly! “

I’m posting this at 12am so nobody sees it

This AU got so dark so fast. 

Kwami swap with Papillon!Adrien (Greyling) and Chat!Hawkmoth (Tuxedo Cat). 

By some misfortune of the universe, Gabe ends up with the Cat Noir miraculous in the first place and Ladybug, dispensed as the yin to his yang, is tasked with getting it back. Naturally, he wants her miraculous too and wreaks havoc all across paris to lure her out. He is ruthless with cataclysm. Ladybug has to grow up a lot quicker to handle a guy with the power of destruction trying to kill her, so Mari ends up being a lot more serious but very in control of her double life.

Master Fu recognizes that she’s in over her head when one day Tuxedo Cat comes out to raise hell and Adrien, a civilian currently sneaking out to go to school, has to step in and help. Fu sees his potential and gives Nooroo to him. Gabe being Tux is like “Shit I put my son in danger” and puts Adrien on basically full throttle house arrest. No matter! The butterfly brooch holder is a distance fighter anyhow.  

Greyling is born. Kid, you are not subtle with your names. Anyway, the akumas now sort of work in reverse: whenever Tux attacks, Greyling asks civilians for their help sending him back to lick his wounds/better yet, get his miraculous.

And the important stuff: the love square. Ladybug, though grateful for the thought, is not a fan of Adrien risking his life to help her that first time, but after that doesn’t have much contact with him. Marinette and Adrien don’t interact much either to begin with. Adrien still obviously loves Ladybug (so selfless, brave, and kind). The mutually reciprocated ship is Greydybug: Ladybug slowly begins to fall in love with whoever keeps sending help to her when Tux attacks though she knows very little about him. Unfortunately, in this au, a reveal is a death sentence, frustrating any attempts at them actually getting together. 

Adrien has a lot less of a facade in this au since his dad is even more distant. He sometimes acts out in non-malicious ways to try to get attention and ends up anonymously forging a camaraderie with Mari. Since he’s more in tune with his emotions, Greyling sometimes accidentally ends up possessing his heroes in his desperate desire to help ladybug (which we see about to happen here). He’s good at it but is constantly horrified when his transformation drops and he realizes who he is again.


Anyway I fully support Papillon!Adrien and yall should too.

Day Eighty-Nine

-I passed a two year-old singing in an angelic voice. She could undoubtedly go professional if only she knew any real words.
-A woman’s card got stuck in her purse, prompting her to bellow, “GET OUT.” I am happy to share that today I met the voice actor from every possession-based horror film in cinematic history.

-A man pressed his phone against the card reader. He became confused when nothing happened. The store not having a mobile pay reader did not seem an acceptable answer for him.

-“Can I get a birthday?” I asked. With a stern tone and an offended face, I was told, “No.” Sure that I misheard, I followed up, “Sorry?” “I said no!” she replied, growing more and more adamant. She wanted to stay out of the store’s systems. I wanted to verify her age for her purchase.

-I made a new friend today. His name is Stanley the Stinkbug. He is a stinkbug. He walked around my screen for about twenty minutes and made for pleasant company. He was very nice, but since he spent his entire stay walking in circles along the same path, he was not quite the brightest bug bulb in the bug bulb bunch.

-Unfortunately, a woman came through my lane with a static-filled robe. Unfortunately, I immediately felt myself get charged up. Unfortunately, I could tell that I would be met with a horrendous shock the next time that I touched metal. Unfortunately, my register is precisely pelvis-high. Unfortunately, the unfortunate happened.

-Children who sing to themselves are amazing, adorable, to be protected, and my best friends.

-At several points throughout the day, the ice machine at the cafe would turn on without a soul in the vicinity. Whether the machine is broken or possessed, it was reassuring to know I could lay down in a pile of ice if the desire so struck me. This is truly my comfort zone.

i think sometimes people get confused when characters are criticised from an entirely in-universe viewpoint instead of the out of universe viewpoint

like, if we look at the harry potter books from outside the narrative, dumbledore’s choice to leave harry with the dursleys makes sense. jkr wanted harry to not know about the wizarding world so that the reader could learn alongside him and she could establish her universe, and a good way to do that was for him to grow up as a muggle and not learn until the events of the book.

but from an in-universe perspective, the same events are a lot more complicated. dumbledore could have done other things - even if he had to leave harry with the dursleys because of lily’s love magic, he could have had mrs figg or his other agents keeping a closer eye on harry and actually taking care of him with the dursleys were abusive, he could have threatened the dursleys into treating harry better (as they start to treat him a little better once harry starts using sirius’ existence as a threat), he could have made it so that harry grew up with a support network outside the house who could possibly give harry the information he needed about his life and treat him well even if harry was still technically living with the dursleys

and that’s a distinction that sometimes people seem to forget

adorable puppy a bit scared mrs might be mad but mrs understands. ♥

Things I’ve thought about this morning: Rosie growing up with Sherlock and John as parental figures.

  • She knows a lot about very specific things. Some of these things concern her teachers.
  • She gets in trouble for skipping steps when having to explain her reasoning because she thinks it was obvious
  • Interest in STEM fields. Chemistry, medicine, engineering. She wants to know why and how things work
  • Sherlock’s violin keeps her grounded to the arts. There’s also an angry painting phase as a teenage that neither Sherlock nor John understand but fully support.
  • She goes to some of the best schools, small and for gifted children (thanks Uncle Mycroft) after traditional schooling proves to be…complicated.
  • She has her dad’s sass and it gets her into trouble from time to time
  • An effort is made to make sure she has friends her own age, neither Sherlock or John want her to be isolated from her peers, they know what that feels like
  • John showing up on meet the parents day to talk about his job and he talks about medicine instead of Sherlock. The class is very disappointed.
  • Sherlock helps her build a mind palace. Hers starts out as a dollhouse.
  • They have highly competitive board game nights. Eventually John has to lay down ground rules so they don’t get out of hand.
Give Me Polyamorous Power Couple Hamliza Or Give Me Death

~Eliza growing up having constant crushes on both men and women and trying to articulate what she wanted to Angelica but never being able to explain it the way she wanted

~When she’s in a relationship: “I want her” “But you’re dating Peter” “I want him too” “But you have to choose” “Why do I have to choose?” When she’s not in a relationship: “Ooh, Liza’s got a crush! Spill it!” “Well, there’s Arthur and his girlfriend, and Sally and her girlfriend, and Jason, and Mary…” “Whoa whoa whoa, slow down, how many crushes can you have?” “Shush, I’m not done”

~When she meets Alexander and quickly falls into her most serious relationship ever she expects the multiple crush thing to stop (Spoiler alert: it doesn’t)

~Eliza feels like a horrible girlfriend because she’s so happy with Alex but then Susan from work will start up a conversation with her in the break room and she’s instantly all heart eyes

~Tearfully she admits it to Alex one night and he’s thrilled because “no there’s nothing wrong with you I promise!!!! You’re just polyamorous!!!!”

~They spend the rest of the night talking about it

~Eliza needs some time to adjust since she’s spent so much time trying to push it aside that she doesn’t really know what else to do but Alex is very helpful

~The first time she tells him about Susan he’s instantly chanting ask her out over and over until she’s laughing and blushing at his antics

~Half a year later and Eliza is subtly sending Alex updates from her dates while he sends her multiple thumbs up emojis and does the same with his own

~She also sets up him and Angelica and when Angelica gets confused about it she’s like you need to stop sacrificing yourself, let yourself be happy

~They share embarrassing stories about him with each other

~He meets John and them after Eliza in this one and it’s all separately

~Hercules comes first because Eliza’s father invited them to a fancy dinner party and Alex needs a suit and since he’s not well educated on these things yet she comes along to help

~Hercules is instantly smitten with Alex and Alex is instantly 😍 because “Eliza look at him!!! He looks like a damn quarterback but he’s so sweet and gentle!!!!” “Either you ask him out or I will”

~Hercules not-so-subtly likes guiding Alex around even though he thinks he’s being smooth

~“Alex there was really no point for him to put his hands on your waist like that, he could’ve told you to just move to the side one step” “… Yeah but did you see how well they fit there he could probably lift me up so easily” “Wow you’re so easy” “Do I need to bring up that cute barista the other day” “pLEASE DO WE HAVE A DATE THIS WEEKEND”

~By the end of the time there Alex is going out to lunch with a pleased but confused Hercules and Eliza is eagerly awaiting every cute picture and text

~From then on he has to deal with both Eliza and Alex stealing his clothes but he can’t really fight since they both look so cute in his sweaters

~The rest come really quickly after that

~Lafayette meets Hercules before the others because they come in requesting a special dress to be made and Hercules is Gone

~“You… You want a dress with a full skirt… But when you pick at a stitch on it the dress falls down into a ball gown?” “Yes, exactly!” “Can I ask why?” “Why? Well, chéri, it’s because I must ensure that I always am prepared for any eventuality and at the top of that list is a need to always look beautiful but entirely unattainable. Oh, that reminds me! It needs to be floor length with my being in eight-inch heels, I have a pair with me so you can measure accurately” “Oh holy shit”

~It takes them exactly one weekend to be brought into the relationship (Alex sees them and instantly is stunned into silence, Eliza flirts and within two minutes they’re already co-conspirators)

~John is next and he struggles with his sexuality and anything that comes from it so he’s very much in the closet when they meet

~John and Alex immediately are best friends and Alex tries asking him out but John very quickly refuses him and Alex takes a step back

~The combined power of the four of them helps to bring John out of his shell even though he’s very shy about it all so they’re respectful and let him suggest everything and move their relationship forward in his own time

~The first time he asks to spend the night with all of them there’s a little fight over who gets to sleep next to him

~Eliza and Hercules win, Lafayette and Alex pout

~Aaron and Theodosia Burr AKA Theo, Eliza, and Lafayette kill and the rest of them are literally powerless against them

~Dates are really fun with them because now there’s enough people to go on group dates and everyone can have a supposed other instead of it being just the mess of them (They still do it as the whole of them, its just more fun to have the people think they’re all separate couples then watch as they get more affectionate as the night goes on)

~Don’t think I’ve forgotten about the Washingtons

~George favors Alex and Laf, Martha favors Eliza, Angelica, and Theo, George is platonic with John, Hercules, Aaron, and the girls, Martha is platonic with everyone but her girls and sometimes Alex and Lafayette (She likes showing off that she’s perfectly capable of stealing them away from him but is graciously letting them stay with him. George jokes back and tries to rally Laf and Alex to joke too but they need time to come back to that plane of existence)

~WEEKEND TRIPS AT MOUNT VERNON WITH EVERYONE

~Eliza and Alex get so many kisses and cuddles since they’re the heart of it all

~Alex dragging everyone outside to look at the stars

~Lots of hot chocolate when Alex drags them outside

~Lots of spiked hot chocolate when they think Martha isn’t looking

~She totally knows since John keeps giggling but she let’s them have fun

~THOMAS JEFFERSON

~Eliza starts flirting with him to bug Alex

~Eventually she starts flirting with him for Alex no matter what he says

~“Look at the tension good god” “Betsey I swear…”

~Eliza has a near constant stream of frustrated texts from George

~“Eliza I’m suffering” “What is it this time, dear?” “They’re arguing again and they look two seconds away from making out” “I’m working on it. Have patience” “I can’t have patience anymore I can’t have meetings because this happens in every one”

~All the hate sex

~All the Jeffmads+Alex hate sex (I would include Aaron but the frustrations are over Washington but Aaron knows why Alex is favored by him and has worked out his own balance with George so he’s not jealous)

~Alex pulls them into the dynamic and they finally understand

~George doesn’t mind them finding out, he’s just glad the tension is gone (Though he has cut more than a few work days short because he walked in on them fucking on his desk because Alex wanted to tease him and he can’t handle that so he just walks out)

~There’s multiple incidents where they try to tease Angelica but she is Not Having It and takes great joy in showing them why

~Angelica Schuyler is my queen she wouldn’t handle any bullshit from them

~MARIA REYNOLDS PROTECTION SQUAD

~Elizabeth “If you touch one hair on my girl’s head I will personally kick your ass from here to California don’t test me” Schuyler

~Obviously she moves in with them immediately and spends every night sleeping between Alex and Eliza

~When things become too much in the city Eliza and her take a trip down to Mount Vernon for a girls-only retreat

~Maria and John never start a romantic relationship but they hit it off very quickly since they’re both abuse survivors (Her with James, him with his father) and John is more healed than she is but there’s wounds he’s still licking and sometimes its nice to just spend the day in silence with someone who understands that company is more important than conversation

~Eliza and Alex creating a crazy huge family for themselves which has confusing interconnecting romantic and platonic relationships but they love it so much they can’t describe it

~Whenever anyone asks about it Alex shows them the graph he’s made for them all

~Everyone has a specific color and one poor soul asks why he chose those colors and spends the next 45 minutes listening to him talking about why each of his signifs was given that very color choice

But that’s just it, isn’t it? The build-up. He’s waited for this for years. He watched her have her first crush in elementary school (and, no surprise, it was not on him.) He watched her flirting with boys at middle school dances. He watched her making out with Jackson in the hallways in high school. He watched her grow up, grow into herself, grow through all the pain of being alive. And all that time, all he had wanted was exactly what he has now. And he feels frozen. He feels stuck in his own incompetence. 

Based on Be My Last by @rongasm.

The fact that Moana put aside her longing for the sea in order to focus on becoming the best leader she could for her people was one of the best and most believable parts of the movie for me. She didn’t mope and turn into a bratty teenager who refused to do what her parents wanted (like many Disney/animated characters often do). People DO grow out of childhood fazes, or at least they move on from them even if they’re not completely forgotten. Sometimes they rediscover them later in life, like Moana did. But I love how her parents were never made to be the villains for not letting her spend all day daydreaming about the ocean. Sure, she argued with her dad, but they gave him a pretty good backstory to support his thinking and Moana never let it become a huge rift in their relationship, despite her frustration. Even when Moana DID end up leaving, it was ultimately to save her people. This theme of responsibility instead of rebellion is wonderfully refreshing and realistic!

What ever happened to this Chi-Chi? Did she just die of grief or was she still alive when Zeno deleted that TL? Everyone was talking about wishing Future Bulma could see Vegeta again but I wish Goku could’ve met Future Chi-Chi. Tell her about Gohan growing up, becoming a scholar and having a family. Tell her about Goten and that he farms for her now. That would’ve hit the feels but just imagine. Future Chi lost everything too, just seeing Goku alive and well telling her about how they are a happy/healthy family in the main TL. Oh boy that would’ve made me so happy! Haha random as hell but I just had the thought about it.
