i want to grow up to be her!

dissonance [5]

summary: Go where your heart takes you. || hades!bucky x persephone!reader || mythology au

warnings: demeter is introduced and she is a cunt-nugget supreme, falling out between famiy, use of the word whore, and i think that’s it

notes: I know I said I was going to make this a fluffy scene between Y/N and James, but I had to throw some kind of discourse in there somewhere (blame H). I hope you guys like this, sorry for the long wait. Also, I imagine the cottage to look somehwhat like the one in the gif, only a little smaller. 

Feedback is always appreciated!

RIP little Princess ❤

My mom had to put our dog down today, I’m glad I got to see her last month when she wasn’t too sick. She lived a crazy, happy long life (17+ years!)

I loved terriers, and I specifically wanted a white one named Snowball. But when we went to the pet store the westie one was too nippy, and this cute little cairn terrier caught my eye. We got her with a strawberry chew toy and I spent the next few weeks debating if I wanted to call her Penny or Princess (from the movie the Little Princess specifically!). Princess was finally the name I settled on, and it seemed like the one she liked the most too. 

I’m so happy I got to grow up with Princess, Ace the cat and Freddy the fish. It’s crazy that Princess was around for so much of my life. She was a good, fierce little dog <3

I JUST WOKE UP TO THE BEST TEXT EVER.

One of my fav cousins is getting married next July in Wisconsin and because she’s amazing, she’s growing all of her own flowers for the wedding. AND SHE WANTS ME TO HELP DESIGN AND MAKE THE BOUQUETS + ARRANGEMENTS.

What a freaking honor. Can’t. Wait.

Lady: *tucks her daughter into bed*


Daughter: “I don’t wanna sleep, mommy. I wanna stay up with you.”


Lady: “But don’t you want to grow up to be as beautiful as your mother?”


Daughter: “…y-yeah…”


Lady: “Then you need to get your beauty sleep.”

*kisses her daughter’s forehead*

“Goodnight sweetie.”


Daughter: “goodnight mommy.”

“The ‘Letters to My Nephews’ series are my favourite episodes because it makes the extra effort to reach out to kids. Growing up, most of my memories of games are sadly also sprinkled with people telling me to stop playing them. Parents, teachers, coaches, all said it was rotting my brain. Little did they know Ocarina of Time was helping me learn how to read because I saw it as a magical interactive storybook.

"I wish there was someone in my childhood to tell me that not only are games fun but they can teach you so much. Now that I have a niece of my own, these are values I desperately want to pass down to her. You can bet I’ll be showing her these videos when she’s a bit older.” –Leels, former Extra Credits artist

Growing Up (Damien Haas)

A/N: An anon requested this based off of Growing Up by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Ed Sheeran. This is the first one that I’m writing from Damien’s view, so I hope y’all enjoy! Let me know if y’all like things written from Damien’s view. 


Sometimes I question why I’m here, I just wanna be a good dad. Will I be? I have no idea.

i try to live up to expectations. I don’t know if I can live up to being as good as a dad my father was. I want to be but learning that my wife is pregnant now was exciting but ultimately scary. 

‘Cause your mama’s the toughest person I know. I wanna raise you to be like her.

I watch her look excitedly at the sonogram. I hope you look exactly like she does; grow up with her determination and playfulness. 

“Look, that’s the head right there. Can you believe it? We’re going to be parents,” Y/N said softly, smiling up at me while pointing at a spot on the picture. 

Your mom’s favorite thing right now is to look at the first sonogram of you. It’s just a quiet Saturday morning in bed when she decided to pull out the sonogram. 

I kissed her forehead and placed my hand on her stomach. You were in there. 

Seeing her excited made this only a bit easier on me. It let me know that it was us two together for you. Together we’ll be the person who grounded you and loved unconditionally. It would be hard without your mom, she’s going to try and give you the world that you deserved. 

“Hey, are you okay? You haven’t said anything this whole time,” Y/N gave me a concerned look. 

I’m still tryna figure out who I am. I don’t wanna mess this up or do this wrong.

“Yeah, I’m completely fine. It’s a lot to take in. I’m going to be a dad and you’re going to be an amazing mother. I just don’t want to do this wrong,” I exhaled. “It’s hard not to think about what I might screw up.” 

“Hey, you’re not going to screw anything up. We’re in this together and you know that. We will mess up together. I know we’re not going to do everything right the first time and that happens,” she turned and faced me. Her voice stayed calm while handling my anxieties. 

Please become that person who knows who they are and knows how to control others. It will make it easier in life if you can somewhat handle others. 

Who am I if I’m the person you become If I’m still growing up.

Sometimes it feels like a child is going to raise up this kid. I think I’m part man and part child. I don’t know if that will be good enough to this specimen that you have in you,” I scratched my neck in nervousness and turned onto my back. 

“Hey it’s all nerves. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous too. I’m so worried that I’m going to turn to every parenting book in the world but still feel like crap afterward,” she exhaled while turning on her side. 

Tell the truth, regardless of the consequence and every day, give your mama a compliment. 

“Well, I’ve said it before and I am going to say it again, you’re going to do absolutely wonderful as a mother, and I will clumsily be the dad,” I chuckled. “This child will think I’m learning to walk with them.” 

“Now that’s the truth,” your mother has the best laugh I’ve ever heard. I remember hearing it for the first time and instantly falling in love with it. “Now I need to get up before my body revolts against me and eats me to death.”

“I love you,” I turned to your mother and gave her a kiss. If it wasn’t for her, it would be hard to think about raising a child. 

“I love you too, but really I have to get up. This child and I need to eat,” she giggled and then got up. 

I can’t wait to meet you, I’ll be ready for you once you’re born. 

I’ll be patient, one more month. You’ll wrap your fingers 'round my thumb.

Favorite Character You Have Played?

So before our current Pathfinder Campaign I would have had to say my old Draenei Inquisitor OC from WoW (I know thats not technically dnd but this is my post) but we dont talk about the dark times.

 as of now it is @starcunning‘s Bards adopted npc daughter - and dedicated punker of @gristol ‘s paladin - Ikeni, the 15 year old sole survivor of a Lizardfolk raid on a merchant town. Basically I wanted to do Arya Stark by way of The Wire, except more funny and not terrible like Arya.

She’s going to grow up to be

but we’ll cross that bridge if/when the party comes to it :)))

her highlights include:

look, the truth is that I’m sentimental and I believe in people growing and whatever, and despite all the awful things she did and how mad I am at her, I just know myself and know that I’d be ready to forgive Rika [ not in real life, but like, in context of the game ] eventually if she got help and wanted to make up for what she’s done

but she doesn’t. she literally doesn’t want to face consequences and get help. she keeps talking about going somewhere with V and I and walking through apple trees, and girl you literally stabbed V? just? be realistic for a second please?

“I remember a time when I was nine years old.  I got in trouble in school for stealing something out of someone’s backpack, and she picked me up and sat me down in the car,” Lourd said.  “And she turned to me and said, ‘Are you going to grow up to be an asshole?’  And I started crying.  She talked to me like an adult my whole life.  I always think that now: I don’t want to grow up to be an asshole!”

Lazy Days with Tom (and Tessa)...
  • waking up, stretching, then turning around to face Tom who was already slightly pouting, wearing his signature puppy dog eyes
    • please,” he’d whine while making grabby hands towards you
    • sighing but finally giving into him
  • that day would be a designated lazy day where you’d do nothing but stay in bed and cuddle 
  • and fuck 
  • he’d have bedhead the entire day and it made him look that much more soft 
    • “mmm, you’re so warm,” he’d mumble into your neck as he draped his body over yours
  • hearing light scratching and whimpering at the door signalling that Tessa was up and not happy that she had not been fed yet
    • “she’s your dog, you feed her,” you’d argue as you both figured out who would have to get out of bed

    • “so really, what do you want for breakfast,” as you both become giggly messes cleaning each other up

  • instead of sitting across from you, he set the table so he’d be beside you and you think it’s the cutest thing ever
    • “I just like being near you s’all,” he shrugs but you see the blush 
    • “I like being near you too,” you say, pressing a kiss to his cheek before grabbing his arm so he’d sit as well
  • having friends play in the background as you both talk about whatever comes to mind
  • he ends up smearing the maple syrup over your nose as you squeal 
    • “I’ll get it,” with a smirk and a wink before he kisses it off
  • you washing the dishes and him drying them because you’re a team™
  • Tessa getting ansty knowing she wants to go for a walk and probably go to the bathroom 
    • “we can let her out in the yard, she’ll be fine,” he promises but you see how sunny it is outside and suggest to go for a walk instead
  • even though it’s sunny, it’s pretty cold so Tom bundles you up in his sweater, pulling one of his beanies over your head, and pressing a kiss to your nose
  • Tessa almost dragging Tom around the park 
  • you can’t stop laughing at it

  • Tessa barging into your room and jumping onto the bed, waking Tom up 
  • you can’t even scold her because Tom loves her so much 
    • “aw babygirl just missed her mommy and daddy,” he’d chuckle as Tessa cuddled in between the two of you
  • she’d get so many belly and head scratches 
  • best day for her hands down 
  • but then Tom shooing her away out of the room, confusing you
    • “why’d you kick her out ????”
    • “because I don’t want her seeing what’s gonna happen next,”
  • lazy, but passionate sex 
  • twice
  • Tom ordering pizza and setting a timer for when it should get there

  • it ends up being Tom and he just grumbles about how you’re lucky I love you
  • he ordered so much pizza for two people 
    • “there’s no way we’re gonna finish all this,” 
    • “I’m a growing boy, let me eat,”
  • more sex because he can’t get enough of you 
  • but when it starts to get dark you lay your head in his lap as he plays with your hair while watching a movie

    • “I made us some tea, love,”
  • taking the mug and thanking him before cuddling into his side once again 
  • deciding to play mario kart but it just ends up in Tom whining like a little baby because he can’t seem to win against you 
  • makeup sex !!!!
  • finally you’re both getting tired
  • and Tessa’s already in bed with you, cuddling with you both as you and Tom just stare at each other in complete darkness 
    • “I love you so much, darling,” he’d whisper into your ear, sending shivers down your spine 
    • mumbling, “love you more,” in your drowsy state 
    • hearing a faint, “love you most,” from him before falling asleep against his chest with a smile on your face
  • Tom watches you drift off thinking how he’s the luckiest guy before falling asleep himself

WOW OK I NEED A SNACK BREAK

Time for some good ol’ Voltron Headcanons
  • Shiro read that post about your body starting to die once you’re 25 and low-key can’t stop thinking about it.
    • “I’m dying Keith, let my final hours be peaceful.”
  • Lance forgets words in English. To figure out the right one he does one of two things:
    • Points at the object angrily and says the Spanish name over and over until someone mercifully gives him the word, or
    • calls it something weird in English, leaving the other paladins to try and guess what he’s talking about.
    • Keith likes to give him the wrong English name for things.
      • He once found Lance angrily pointing at a badminton racquet and muttering to himself in Spanish. Keith told him it was a toaster and the look on Lance’s face was so scandalized Keith cried from laughing too hard.
      • Lance didn’t speak to him for two days.
    • Lance once called Pidge’s computer her “electric brain.”
  • Pidge has won every single bet she’s ever made with Hunk.
  • Allura lets the mice hide and take naps in her hair.
  • Keith’s favorite song growing up was “Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra, it’s what made him want to be a space pilot.
    • When Keith and Lance start dating, Lance plays the song for them to slow dance to on the observation deck.
      • Keith cries.
  • Hunk has a Hersey chocolate bar hidden in his room. He’ll break off a small piece if he feels like he should have died on a mission but survived.
  • When Pidge swears, Lance gasps loudly and covers Shiro’s ears.
  • It’s rare for Lance to not say, “I came out here to have a good time, and honestly I’m feeling so attacked right now,” at least once during a battle with the Galra.
  • It took three months for Pidge to realize that they were the aliens whenever Voltron visited a new planet.
    • This information blew Lance’s fucking mind.
  • One time when Keith was stabbed during a bar fight, he asked the guy if he could keep the knife.
    • It’s hanging on his wall back in the desert shack.

all the yukamitsus *Q* which one is your fav?

let’s be honest...

This is probably gonna come across as quite negative, but it’s really not intended to be. I’m going to be honest because thats what this blog is about, honesty and discussion. I would never usually do a post like this, but I’ve spoken to a lot of people who are feeling the exact same way as myself. This isn’t spreading “hate” so don’t attack me for it, it’s an opinion and it’s something that I feel should be addressed. Anyway, here we go:

I genuinely feel as a fandom, we are all so blinded by how we perceive Lauren to be, that we always attempt to justify the things she says/does when in reality, there’s a lot of things, we don’t actually agree with. I’m struggling to accept this image she’s playing out. It’s obvious their team is preparing her for her solo career next year. Out of the 4, only she and Ally so far have been given permission to release a song for profit in mainstream pop this year. Now, we’ve touched on the younger fanbase issue before. Lauren has always wanted to be older and more mature than who she is. Every stage in life happens for a reason, we accept that as we grow we learn what we need to know, when we need to know it.  L attempted to grow up so fast, that she’s now lost who she was. I look at L in 2015 then I look at her today. She was more mature and aware two years ago at 18/19 than she is now. Present day, her actions and behaviour contradict everything she stands for and preaches upon us. She selective, and addresses certain things on social media, leaving other major issues out. Her sexuality is now been questioned and undermined because of who she is been linked to and who she’s supposedly dating. That’s actually fucking sad, not just for L, but for LGBT fans across the fandom. She’s either drunk/high in nearly everything she uploads on Instagram. I understand thats a lifestyle choice, thats completely acceptable. There’s millions of people that do weed, I don’t personally but I don’t have an issue with people doing it, each to their own. However, what I do have a problem with is young fans cluelessly imitating Lauren’s behaviours because of her status and profile. If she wasn’t so public and blatant about what she was doing, I wouldn’t be writing this. None of the other girls are, and this is partly my issue.  L attempts to justify who she is and her lifestyle but all she’s doing is conforming to the stereotypes put in place by the music industry by publicising everything but not what’s important.

There’s been instances where Lauren has been so rude and impolite to respectful fans who nicely and respectfully ask for pictures or to talk with her. I understand theres a lot of fans who don’t respect the girls privacy, the airport incident was just one of many situations. But, 90% of the fandom are genuine fans who literally just want to take a picture or talk for a few minutes with their idols. These are the genuine fans that in reality elevated the girls to the level of success they currently sit at today. I’ve spoke to fans who have been left in tears at the Meet and Greets because Lauren couldn’t be bothered to interact with those who had spent hundreds of dollars to specifically meet her. I understand she’s human, she’s allowed to have off days we all have them. But, it’s important to remember, Lauren chose to audition back in 2012, she chose to sign a group contract and she chose fame. Nobody else chose this but herself. 

Fame can be the greatest thing in the world. You can do what you love, gain a platform and address issues you’re passionate about and have them taken seriously. However, it’s the most damaging thing to ever exist in humanity. What comes with fame is money and greed, and individuals loose who they perceive themselves to be. L’s confidence in herself often comes across as egotistical and arrogant. In any real life situation, no one should behave like that because no one is ever going to be the best. Why’s that? Because, there’s always going to be someone in life who comes along that’s better than you are and unfortunately, that’s just the way the world works.

I’m going to be completely honest with you all here, I genuinely fear L will lose herself in industry as a solo artist. There’s temptation, and people will try and craft her into a mould for the sole purpose of making money. We’re already seeing this happen. I fear her political and social activism will be degraded because of how she behaves and portrays who she is. There’s that added pressure to be the best vocally and if were being honest, theres always someone new that’s better. Her feminism and liberation as a woman will be taken away from her if she continues being linked to those known for their misogynistic and antifeminist behaviour. Her sexuality, something so empowering, brave and a huge part of who she is, will be degraded and mocked if she’s in relationships with certain people who think bisexuality is a joke. It’s not acceptable.

The healthiest and safest thing for Lauren to do, is to distance herself from social media and concentrate on what really matters. Spending time with family to reground herself of who she is and what she stands for. She’s got so much going for her and her potential is endless. But at the same time, she’s losing a lot of respect from fans who have been there from day one and those are the same fans that regardless of contract, can make or break a career.

I want a Marauders series.

I want an 11 year old Sirius Black finally entering Platform 9 ¾, finally escaping from his unloving family, with a look of hope and fear of what’s next to come in his eyes. I want a misunderstood Remus Lupin entering the train, scared of what might happen if anyone finds out his secret, scared he might not fit in just like at home. I want a little Peter Pettigrew, awkwardly walking through the station, anxious about making friends and starting this whole new chapter of his life. I want a fearless James Potter, excited for the new adventures ahead, ambitious and eager to find his new group of friends waiting for him on that train. I want the four of them finding no open compartments on the train and agreeing to sit with each other for the ride, unaware of the brotherhood that was just born. 


I want Remus coming back after his first full moon at school, new scars etched in his skin, scared to face anyone’s questions. I want Sirius telling Remus that whoever did that to him wont see the light of day, and Remus breaking down, ashamed to tell his new friends what a monster he is. I want Sirius, James and Peter all reminding Remus every single day that he is far from a monster, and that they love him for who he is. I want Sirius illegally learning how to turn into his animagus forms so that he can stay with Remus during his transformations and make sure he makes it out okay. I want the three boys skipping classes to stay with Remus after a rough full moon, snuggled up in front of the fire with chocolate frogs and pumpkin juice. I want McGonagall to find the four boys asleep in their common room, but let them off with a pass because she could see Remus’s new scars and the loving arms of the other boys protectively around him (and because she’s had a sweet spot for those boys from the day she met them).

I want James desperately trying to win over miss Lily Evens, the girl with a heart far more fiery than her bright red hair. I want Lily constantly shutting him down, keeping her admiration for him to herself. I want Peter trying to befriend her in hopes that he could introduce her into the group, then feeling bad and eventually just telling her how much James talks about her and how she should give him a chance. I want Sirius teasing the HELL out of James when he comes back from his first date with a lipstick stain on his cheek (which Lily left on purpose, fully aware of the torture that would come).I want James spoiling the crap out of his best friends, especially Sirius. I want 5 hour Quidditch practices, James wanting nothing more than to just go to his room and sleep, but alas, Sirius is waiting for him with another one of his “great” ideas that he’s been working on. I want the three boys being as obnoxious as humanly possible at all of James’s Quidditch games, and James secretly loving it. 

I want Sirius shamelessly flirting with all the first years, and Remus looking at him with jealous eyes. I want Sirius pulling Remus aside at random points during the day (especially when he can see that look in his eyes) and reminding him that he’ll always be his number one Moony. I want Sirius randomly coming up with nicknames for his friends, names that only they could have the honor of using. I want him turning into a dog to avoid responsibility (and to mess with Snap on occasion). I want Sirius to get furious when James would decide to hang out with Lily instead of him, but grow to love her like a sister. I want other Gryffindors to lose their shit because “Black, shut tHE HELL UP ITS 4 IN THE MORNING”. I want a loyal Sirius always standing up for his friends, even if he knows their wrong. I want McGonagall accidentally calling Sirius “Mr. Potter” because of his closeness with the Potter family, and refusing to take it back once she sees the look of pure joy in his eyes, because for once in his life, Sirius Black has a family who loves him. 

I want Peter stealing chocolate from the Great Hall after dinner to sneak up to Remus on a full moon. I want him being too awkward to talk to the Ravenclaw he has a crush on and needing Sirius to be his wingman. I want him defying all odds and doing whatever it takes to help his friends, including stealing some wolfs bane for Remus from Herbology class. I want Peter getting picked on by the older students, and then James and Sirius have a “talk” with them and comforting their little Wormtail. I want sleepless nights, wondering into the kitchen and snacking on pastries until morning. I want Peter the Peacemaker, always there to be the unbiased opinion in any argument the other three got into. I want Peter, little scared Peter, to finally find a place where he isn’t just “scared little Peter”. I want Peter finding his place along side his best friends (brothers, rather) and learning how to open up, and be as courageous as his heart, because he knows that even if he falls, he’ll have three amazing people waiting to catch him. 


I want birthday parties. I want James going above and beyond, decorating the whole Gryffindor Tower, getting tons of gifts, making the cakes, the whole 10 yards. I want Sirius crying during his first birthday at Hogwarts because he’s never had anyone make such a fuss over him (and he’ll never let James stop making such a fuss over him). I want Peter eating the cake before the party even began, and James trying so hard to be mad but failing because Peter is basically his little brother. I want James almost forgetting about his own birthday until he walks into the common room where Remus, Sirius and Peter are all standing with stupid grins, surrounded by balloons and colorful potions (and of course Lily, much to James’ surprise). I want Sirius beating the crap out of anyone who dares comment on Remus’ scars, and James beating the living day light out of anyone who comments on Sirius’ home life. I want Peter being there to comfort Remus and Sirius while this is all happening, assuring Remus that he is no monster, and telling Sirius he is nothing like his family. I want all four boys staying up night after night creating the Marauders Map, the map that they sign their honorary nicknames to, and swear will make them legends one day. I want them coming up with the most epic pranks, even going as far as to prank the teachers (except Minny, of course). I want detention after detention, sitting in classrooms or polishing trophies or doing dirty work for different professors, each of the four boys looking at each other with mischievous smiles. I want James showing the boys some new potions his dad created, or his new invisibility cloak that they can use for their epic pranks.

I want all four of these boys meeting on the train every year, in the same compartment, planning the year ahead of them, escaping from reality. I want James Potter, Peter Pettigrew, Sirius Black, and Remus Lupin, all finding hope and belonging and worth within each other. I want Prongs, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Moony. I want to hear their story.
