hey everyone. i, and other students of color, really need your help.
students of color at gonzaga university made the following video wanting to address the harmful microaggressions they face on the gonzaga campus every day.
the response from their community has, unfortunately, been overwhelmingly negative. this was such a brave and meaningful thing for these students to do, and i don’t want their concerns to go unheard and their experience to go unsupported. microaggressions have made myself and others feel alienated from various institutions for too long. students of color should not have to forcefully assimilate to feel like they belong. they need your support, they need proper recognition of their identity and experience.
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT OUT OF YOUR DAY TO THUMBS UP THIS VIDEO ON YOUTUBE, AND MAYBE LEAVE AN ENCOURAGING COMMENT. college activism is fucking exhausting, and i really don’t want these students to get discouraged.
in your opinion: what were the videos in which they seemed most in love / acted the most couple-y this year? after watching the bloopers my heart feels really warm and i wanna keep that feeling for a bit
Let’s just say I had WAY too much fun with this ask! I’m posting under a cut cause this is going to get long. Like, there are literally sections under here for each main channel, side channel, and the gaming channel along with a list in order of upload date and links to every video, so when I say long I mean long… Here we go:
This is a short chapter, too important to add to Thirteen, but not the right scene to turn into Fifteen lol so if you guys want another chapter today give me 145 likes and 50 reblogs and Ill post again.
For those who are wondering, no good change with my grandma, we are just waiting for her to pass now and I cry every time I think about her, so please keep asks/messages about fics to help keep me distracted.
Bucky’s heat lasted three long, horrible days, and everyone took turns sitting and watching Bucky throughout to make sure he was alright.
First Steve and Tony, for hours, then Clint came to relieve Steve. After that was Natasha, who held Tony’s hand the entire time, and then Pepper who brought a stack of paperwork and kept up a constant stream of chatter about the company and the latest news from SHIELD as a way to break up the quiet. Bruce sat and went over the final design for their new helicopter, forcing Tony to take bites of his dinner in between okaying certain specs and constantly checking on Bucky.
Sam was last, having been gone on a mission for a few days, but as soon as he got home and heard what happened he was downstairs as well, telling a nearly passed out Bruce to go to sleep, and taking up the post next to Tony.
If you want to watch some sports anime, but don’t know where to start, I have made this handy chart to point you in the right direction!
It is meant to be a light-hearted little joke, not a research, so obviously not all sports anime is included, and it just shows my opinion. I spent like three hours making this, so don’t repost, please. But you can delete this intro if you reblog, this rambling is getting too long XD
After three long weeks I’m finally done with this project! I’m so happy of how it turned out and I hope you like it too. I worked so hard on this so I would appreciate if you leave some comments telling me your thoughts about it.
It’s also the first time I do something like this and I would love if you reblog it so more people can see it. :>
Friday, eggo’s and prom. (Steve Harrington x Reader)
Notes: Hey guys! I was not actually planning on writing this but a nice anon requested a prom prompt…which turned into a whole fic because I got carried away, whoops, sorry.
This is an interactive fic! So when it tells you to, click on the “Listen now” You don’t have to but it’s a fun little thing to do. <3Also I’ve never
been to prom, I don’t really know how prom works but I’ve watched enough north
american films and I think I did good, I hope so anyway. I hope you enjoy reading this and please let me know if you do! Feedbackand reblogs are always very appreciated. <3 I love you very much, enjoy! <3
Summary: Steve and you have been friends for a long time but that’s just not enough. He’s ready for the next step and hopes you are too. In an effort to catch your heart, he and the kids plan a night that you will never forget.
“It’s okay, you got this
Steve, you got this” Steve ran his hands through his hair as he repeated the
words to the mirror “She’ll say yes, It will be fine. You got this.”
“wHAT the –
WHO are you talking to, Steve?!” Dustin interrupted, scaring the living crap
out of Steve
“WHAT ARE YOU
DOING HERE, DUSTIN!?!?! AND IS THAT MY CHOCOLATE PUDDING!?!?!”
“Oh yeah, hi!
You gave me a spare key, remember?”
FOR EMERGENCIES ONLY”
“It’s a good
thing we came, then. You look like you need help.”
that moment Steve heard noise and laughter coming from the living room. He immediately
rushed down the stairs. He was greeted by the whole party sitting on the couch watching
Knight Rider surrounded by what seemed to be Steve’s entire pantry.
you, get out, NOW!” Steve interrupted.
dude” Dustin said, coming down the stairs.
you don’t understand, (y/n) is coming over in like an hour!”
the party mocked
“Is that why
you were talking to the mirror when I came into the room?” Dustin questioned
WILL YOU SHUT UP!?” Steve said with desperation and embarrassment. Dustin
quickly coverd his mouth. Steve shook his head before giving Dustin a death
glare “not cool, dude.”
you so nervous?” Max interrupted, “You hang out with her all of the time.”
sighed before sitting down on the arm of the couch, next to the kids. “Yeah…it’s
just, I’m thinking of asking her to go with me to p-”
Lucas shouted out before Steve could finish
prom. Thanks Lucas.” Steve replied with a sarcastic tone.
asked Mike “That’s like a suicide mission. Everyone wants to go to prom with (y/n)”
he continued, not realizing Steve’s face growing with sadness. Max quickly
mouthed out at Mike.
“But, uuh- I mean, maybe she’ll say yes?” Mike
said, trying to fix it.
“Yeah! You’re an awesome dude, she’ll totally
say yes!” Dustin chimed in with an encouraging tone
We’ll all help you.” Will exclaimed “Where are you asking her?”
Steve said, not feeling so convinced.
you kidding?” Lucas looked at Steve like he was insane “Nonono, my mum said you
should take girls on nice dates, like dinner in a nice restaurant.” Max gave Lucas
never taken me to a restaurant, what are you talking about?”
guys! Stay on the subject!” Steve quickly intervened. “I can’t take her to a
restaurant Lucas. We’re kind of running short on time here, yeah?”
“Fort” El quietly
said, looking at Mike.
Mike looked back at her, confused. She nodded at him “like the one home” she continued
“Fort! Yes!” Mike exclaimed, getting where she was going. “El is right! Let’s
make a fort!”
out a loud groan and rolled his eyes “We don’t have time to mess around! She’s
going to get here soon, so if you guys don’t have any actual ideas please leave
my house right now.”
his eyes back at Steve “No, dumbass” he started in a mocking tone “That’s the
idea. Let’s make a fort right here, with a table in the center of it and some
makes sense. Wait, why would there be a table, though?” Steve questioned
duh.” Mike replied with an annoyed expression
eggo extravaganza” El replied with wide eyes. Steve looked back at her in
surprise, not really knowing what she meant but going with it nonetheless.
do this then!” Steve said in a loud and excited tone.
Everyone quickly got up from the couch and
started hustling, moving everything around to create space for the fort.
looked over at Steve while they were moving a couch “What type of flowers did
you get her? ” Steve’s eyes widened
seRIOUSLY? YOU DIDN’T GET HER ANY FLOWERS? WE ALL KNOW FLOWERS ARE THE KEY TO A
GIRLS HEART, JESUS.”
“I meant to
buy them, I-I just, I was so nervous I forgot, okay?” Steve mumbled in guilt.
get the flowers with Lucas” Max said, overhearing their conversation. “Will can
go get some of his brother’s records because your music taste is wack and-”
“And El and
I will go get the fairy lights and eggo’s from my house.” Mike interrupted.
and I are putting up this fort, right NOW.” Dustin looked at Steve right in the
eye before going up stairs for blankets, Steve quickly following behind him. Before
everyone left to fulfill their corresponding tasks, Steve looked back at Max.
“Peonies, those are her favorite.” Max gave
him a smile and nodded before finally exiting the house.
at Steve’s house, feeling nervous for some reason. You were about to knock on
the door when you heard mumbling from the inside
totally gonna love this dude! You got this! There is no way she says no!” you
heard Dustin say, you could recognize his voice anywhere.
“Aww, stop it Dustin! You’re making Steve
blush” Max replied. “Is that-Billys’ sister?” you thought to yourself in
surprise as you kept listening.
it! You’re making me even more nervous!!!!” Steve exclaimed.
feel your hands starting to tremble as you went to finally knock on the door. The
heat creeping onto your cheeks.
here. Everyone hide”
said nervously as he opened the door for you.
Dustin…” you greeted back in a doubtful tone “what’s going on, where’s Steve?”
Dustin completely froze as he thought of an excuse. “Just, put this blindfold
on and follow me, yeah?” he finally said, handing you over a red piece of
cloth. You took it and looked up at him confused. “Come on, it’s fine, just put
the house and did as you were told, struggling to make your way through the
corridors as Dustin led you to the living room.(Listen now)You could hear The Cure playing in the background,
which confused you even more. Dustin stopped at once, startling you and almost
making you fall over. You couldn’t see this, but Steve mouth a very concerned “Careful!”
Dustin said as he turned around and took the blindfold off your eyes. “Have fun” he whispered as he patted your shoulder and left the room.
your eyes were going to flinch in efforts to adjust to the light but that wasn’t
the case. The light emitting from the fairy lights was soft and gave the
ambient a very romantic feel. Steve was sitting on the floor in front of you
with the biggest smile in his face, nervously tapping his foot against his
knee. You smiled back at him as you placed a stray piece of hair over your ear.
“Hey” you whispered
whispered back, quickly getting up. “Here, I got you these.” Steve said as he stretched his arm, revealing the peonies he was hiding behind his back.
the flowers in your hands, completely speechless, they were so beautiful.
are gorgeous.” you finally said, looking up at Steve through the dim lights. He
gave you a smile, trying to hide that he was proud of them too. “These are my favorite;
how did you know?”
know you.” He replied before taking your hand and guiding you towards your side of the table. You sat down as he went to his side and sat back
of this? What’s going on?” you said, looking all around you.
caught on to your amused look. “Do you like it?” he inquired, signaling at the
“I love it,
it’s incredible.” You replied, offering
him a soft smile. “But you still haven’t told me what’s going on.”
you a smirk before signaling the girls to come over. Max and El entered the
room, both holding a plate full of eggo’s with a lot of whipped cream and
m&m´s. They placed both of your plates down on the table and quickly ran
away giggling. You looked up at where they were going and found all the kids
bundled up on the stairs, supposedly hiding. They all snickered and quickly ran
up the stairs when they saw you noticing them. You felt your heart warm at how
adorable they were. You glanced back at Steve, his eyes never leaving you as he
softly signaled at your plate with his head. You slowly looked down at your
plate, afraid of what you might find. As you examined the dessert in front of
you, you noticed the words “Will you go to prom with me?” spelled
out with chocolate. You felt the biggest smile creep onto your face as your
heart started racing so hard it felt like it was going to explode.
you?” Steve said, feeling more shaken than ever, trying hard not to smile too
soon but failing completely.
Steve! Of course I will!” You blurted out with excitement. You got up and leapt
to give Steve the biggest hug, making both of you tumble to the ground.
YESS!!!” both Steve and you turned around to the sound of the kids shouting
“I TOLD YOU
SHE WOULD SAY YES!!!” Dustin shouted even louder, pointing at Steve. “YOU GO
STEVE, YOU GO.”
your arm at them “Come on down, let’s all eat together!” They didn’t think
twice about it and ran down the stairs in excitement. (Listen now)
ended with you having a mini-dance party to awesome 80′s music with all of the kids, watching old
movies together and El stealing all the eggo’s, of course.
I think having bpd is one of the toughest things I’ve ever experience and will ever experience, it’s like you are in constant war with yourself. But it also feels like you are walking without skin, everything is too much too fast and you can’t even enjoy when you feel “normal” because you have the crippling feeling that you have to watch out because it won’t last long.
So I have a list of songs that I listen to when I’m really missing my boyfriend and they help me feel better. Some are older because my mom showed me some songs she used to listen to when my dad was gone for the Marines. I thought I’d share because I know how hard it can be to find a good song to cry to on harder nights. Also, some are military related songs and some aren’t but they’re about long distance and work too.
sit with penny! let’s see if we can fill this page! reblog and go all out, have fun!
it doesn’t matter what you do but as long your sitting down or if you want to be in the back ground that’s fine too,but you have to stand up or try to think of something :D anyways take your time and let’s see who is going to be in this picture? also I will post one of dime later on so watch out for that? enjoy and tag me when your done :D
My dude, that’s a weighted question, but absolutely I will try! Thank you for trusting me with such a task! So, this got really long (sorry!) but I wrote some shortish descriptions of each character, mostly basic facts/traits with some fandom interpretations sprinkled in because that’s important to understanding the character if you a) want to get involved in the fandom or b) just want to understand how people see the character. I hope this helps you!
Your Basic Batboys Bruce Wayne/Batman: The father of it all. Billionaire. Emotionally traumatized by the murder of his parents when he was 8 and copes by dressing as a bat beating up criminals (no killing rule #1!! and no guns). Usually has a flashy, playboy public persona. Serial adopter, but a distant father. Tries his best. Fandom portrayal is varied, but Batdad being an unconventional yet surprisingly sweet parent is relatively common trope (and a personal favorite)
Alfred Pennyworth: The Wayne’s butler who raised Bruce after his parents die and puts up with all his vigilante shit. Not much is written about his background. Has medical training and seemingly combat training. He’s old but how old?? How does he have all these skills?? No one knows. Everyone respects him, and he’s the true boss. Canon king of sass.
Dick Grayson/Robin/Nightwing: Acrobat. Parents died in a trapeze act that was rigged by Tony Zucco, and Bruce saw himself in him and adopted him and trained him as Robin, eventually helping him to get the justice for his parents killer Bruce himself never had. Member and leader of the Teen Titans. Moved out to Blüdhaven and became Nightwing (who fights with enscrima). 80s Nightwing costume was a mistake. Was a cop, and a secret agent, and also faked his own death once. Canon flirt to the max. Usually super nice, a good leader, everyone likes and respects him. Basically another parent to Damian.
Jason Todd/Robin/Red Hood: Street urchin, canonically stole the tires off the batmobile and called Batman a big boob. Rebellion Angsty Teen™. There was a whole thing where he was looking for him mother, got captured, and got beaten then blown up by the Joker. Got revived and became Red Hood. He and Bruce have lots of issues, some of them over Jason’s use of guns and breaking the no killing rule. Morally gray character. Red Hood costume where the hood had a face was a HUGE mistake. His black hair with a white streak in the middle was not.
Tim Drake/Robin/Red Robin: Stalked Batman and Robin, figured out their identities, and saw that Bruce was too emotionally unstable without a Robin after Jason’s death so he inserted himself as the new Robin. His parents are rich and fairly emotionally distant, and in most stories they die (read Identity Crisis for the tragic death of Jack Drake). Undoubtedly an excellent detective, rivals Batman in intelligence. Fights with a bo staff. Very depressed. Everyone thinks he’s dead but he’s not.
Damian Wayne/Robin: Biological son of Bruce and Talia al Ghul. Raised by the league of assasins and very smart and skilled in hand-to-hand combat and weapons. Maybe 10, grumpy, doesn’t like to admit he needs help or liked people but actually adopts a lot of pets (including Goliath, a giant man bat demon thing). Actually died and came back. Calls Bruce “Father,” most of the fam by their last names, and makes a “tt” sound a lot when he’s exasperated.
Duke Thomas/Lark/Robin: New addition to the fam. Smart guy, first met Bruce after working on Riddler’s challenge to the city. Joker fucked with his parents, and then a lot of stuff went down in foster care and We Are Robin, but long story short he came out and became Lark. Skilled in combat. Just a super heroic and resilient dude (who hopefully will be in more upcoming media).
you know for some reason your Gaster reminds me of Kurosensei from assassination classroom, i really don't know why, but they do, is that intentional or is it just me?
Gaster: And also the culprit who blew up like about 80% of the moon www
Gaster: Now you have a whole year to kill me, your teacher! Okay, I’m dying of laughter because the anime really suits well..! wwwww
Sadly, it wasn’t intentional and you’re not the first to point that out! Somebody on Undertale Amino at the comments of a reblog also said the same thing too, except it was before I created any animation-comics..! X’DD
is it true your dads cancer has developed to stage 4? there's been rumors. if so i'm really sorry and i'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers. your father was the highlight of my childhood and i hope he feels better soon. sorry for prying!
“Friends and supporters,
This is the update I never wanted to write. During moments of distress and heartache, time can become a friend and ease us down the road from our pain. Our hearts become a little lighter and we allow ourselves to hope.
But as many of you know, cancer has its own agenda. Stefan’s post-surgery diagnosis revealed devastating news - his condition has progressed to Stage 4. As his wife Steina said, “life expectancy is significantly impaired.”
Despite the best efforts of his excellent Icelandic medical team, and Stefan’s personal heroism, there is no apparent cure. There are always experimental processes, and they will be woven into the fabric of Stefan’s care if at all possible.
But for now and the immediate future, family and friends are concentrating on being positive, giving Stefan whatever he needs to recover from his most recent surgery, and regain his energy for as long as possible.
He is an extraordinary man - do I need to tell you that? He is moving beyond fear to a courageous and practical frame of mind. He has plans for several projects which I am certain will delight his fans worldwide.
And so I come to the part of this message where I put on my fundraising hat. You have all been so generous and kind these past few months, as our running total will attest. Can you do more?
It’s hard to ask, but that is my job and I’m going to keep asking until people start throwing rocks at me.
I want us to raise a staggering amount so that Stefan will not have to bear the additional worry of his family’s future, at least in the short term.
Thank you for your kindness and your concern for our friend Stefan.
Help spread the word!” - As written by Mark Valenti (who is in charge of the fundraising). The paragraph is copy pasted from the gofundme site that you can find here: https://www.gofundme.com/2tm9tqk
In other words, yes. It has been confirmed that it is terminal. He will not grow to be an old man. There is no way of saying how long he has left and believe me when I say that it’s frustrating for us too. I would prefer to not answer further questions on the matter and while I’m not upset with any of the people who have contacted me or sent asks, I would like to ask you all to contact Mark and watch for updates on gofundme as well as on the facebook site rather than contacting me directly. Thank you all for the kind words.
God look at that quality header. Graphic design is my passion.
Skam is BACK and this time I get to watch from the first clip! Fandom has been in uproar and I have so many feelings and opinions I’ve been coming apart at the seams. A lot of polarising opinions, questions, concerns, outrage. Not to mention the totally anticipated yet still alarming racism and islamophobia considering our main is a POC Muslim girl this time around.
So I thought I’d take the time to collate all my thoughts and feelings into a daily/weekly breakdown for each episode! I try to be as subjective and clear headed as possible while watching this show and take in the messages, lessons and information Julie Andem et al are providing. Forgive me if I happen to project a little or get wild in my enthusiasm as a muslim growing up europe this season is so #relatable I’ve been shook since the second we got the trailer and still in a state of disbelief that this is actually happening. So as someone very invested I thought why not share my two cents with the class.
Disclaimer: Everything here is my personal thoughts and opinions. They do not represent the views of all Muslims or POC. It’s just my own take on the show.
Im gonna try doing this Day by Day depending on the lengths ( this gets wordy I don’t shut up I’m Sorry)
Okay here we are the famous opening scene. In true Skam fashion we see Sana on the train watching the streets of what i assume is Oslo go by, intersped with images relevant to the main themes of this season. Trump, images of war in what could be syria or palestine ( don’t quote me on that I honestly couldn’t tell you which), the hijabi mascot of the women’s march, the french beach hijabi lady indcedent, images of the army and missiles firing. Right off the bat they ain’t fucking around.
The street ad of two women in bikini’s which Robyn sings “All of these girls a mess I’ve seen it all before I’m not impressed” Sana watches all of this impassively, dare I say haughty even. That is until she finds herself staring at a bunch of dudebros have an ab contest in the street. Sana is human and she stares. Robyn insists “None of them make me feel anything” in direct conflict with what we see cause Sana’s expression is intrigued, appreciative even, shes smirking. That is until she startled out of it by the Azaan for Zuhr going off on her phone.
Hello Relatable AF moment #1 ( honestly why am I counting there’s already a million)
