i will friends it's just a matter of time

A note from the Indivisible Team
A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game.

A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game. We are going to lose a lot. We are going to get good at losing. We are going to lose cabinet votes for terrible nominees. We are going to lose bills that are offensive and appalling. But while we are losing, something else is going to happen. We are going to keep raising our voices and slowly our representatives are going to start listening to us. We’ve seen it happen. 

It won’t happen because of next week’s call to action. It’ll happen over months, where you keep showing up, regularly. Then, we are going to start winning. It’ll sneak up on us. We won’t understand why we are winning. But it starts with losing in a particular way- where we raise our voices and call it out when we aren’t listened to, where we get close but not quite there.

The first 100 days of a President’s term are the honeymoon period, the moment when he’s most likely to get his agenda enacted. Trump is spending his first 100 days mired in controversy, scandal, and backbiting - and that’s because you haven’t for a moment let anyone in Washington forget just how unpopular he is.

Every time we change the narrative, every time we delay, every time there’s a newspaper story about a member of Congress avoiding his or her constituents, that’s a win. And it matters.

You have already made history. You’ve delayed the confirmation of Trump’s cabinet picks longer than any time in recent history. You stopped the gutting on the congressional ethics office. You’ve made Republicans so nervous about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act that it’s been pushed further and further down the road. You caused an uproar of historic proportions over Trump’s Muslim ban and saved lives and reunited families in the process. You’ve inspired people who have never before taken action to make their voices heard and learn how to do things like check how their members of Congress voted and call them out for it.

We’ll never even know about some of the victories - because those will be the fights that this Administration considered starting and then realized it couldn’t win.

We’re in this together. Every visit. Every call. Every loss. Every win. That’s just what friends do. #StandIndivisible

In solidarity,

The Indivisible Team


Maddie is one of my bestest friends on tour and to play her here, honestly, I wouldn’t have wanted to play anyone else. I told her I wished it could be a draw, cause I wish we could’ve both won. I’m gonna support her no matter what, and I know she’s gonna support me no matter what, so to stand here with her today is incredible, and that’s what real friendship is.

You’re telling me that the girl, Stiles let an evil entity into his body for, is just nothing?

That Malia’s feelings mean squat to you people?

That the girl who loved and was with Stiles for a long period of time, that he loved and was his first girlfriend and his first time EVER and he is her anchor, don’t matter?

They don’t even get a hug.

For crying out loud, he hugs Liam, he tells Parrish ‘I love you’ and then again, to Liam and Mason.

But the girl that meant more to him than any of those people, gets nothing?

And yet, the girl who is JUST realising her feelings after years of making Stiles feel like crap, before they became friends, gets a big romantic reunion?

Forced or what?

anonymous asked:

That Ivanka Trump, powerful Jewish woman headline is making me so anxious right now. Every time I see something emphasizing her or Kushner's Jewishness I get so worried that, well, we all know what's going to happen. Like even if we miraculously get out of this whole Trump mess it's gonna end up being yeah, but look at those Jews that were responsible, you know? It'll be look, stereotype confirmed! I just feel like no matter what, we lose and it SUCKS.

Anon, I want so badly to reply to this with something reassuring, because that’s what I do.

Unfortunately, in this case, I got nothing.

My friend Navah had a great twitter thread on being someone’s “first Orthodox Jew” and the responsibility it carries, in terms of representing the identity to the greater populace. It is terrifying to realize that Ivanka and Jared are going to be a lot of people’s first Orthodox Jews- or first Jews, period. It is not exaggerating to say that Ivanka and Jared are going to color how people in the US view Jews for decades at least- and that’s talking about people who aren’t already the rabid antisemites who flood twitter with the gross caricatures of us.

This was scary even going in to the presidency, but it’s gotten worse as time has passed. Jared is under investigation, and I’ve found myself torn between my desire to see these horrible people get what they deserve, and being terrified that the people being called out are Jews. Being the first scapegoats when things go wrong is not a new thing for us.

I think that Bannon & Co. are DELIGHTING in the idea of being able to blame the problems on a Jew. Here’s my naivete: I thought that Kushner and Ivanka being there might force Trump to moderate at least the antisemitism in his cabinet, because he is a morally bankrupt fool but always projects family first. I recognize I was wrong.

And to be clear, Kushner 100% deserves jail time for being a shitty human being who, as best we understand at the moment, illegally colluded with Russia in the service of a president who doesn’t understand even the most basic levels of how this country works and just wants to boost his own businesses. But that doesn’t make the antisemitism that’s inevitably going to bloom out of it appropriate or acceptable, and that is what makes me concerned about what happens to Kushner even though he deserves to rot.

tododeku fic recs

this is for @lionessallura 

tbh this is a lot less than i expected but like apparently the rest of the tododeku fic recs i have saved are of mostly midoriya pining but my rambling will make up for it so  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • but me, i’d rather be with you by velvetcrowbars [28k words] - idk if you like the fake dating trope, but that is a personal fave of mine and this one is just fucking great. basically this takes place when everyone is a pro hero and todoroki and midoriya get back in touch and the media thinks they’re an item. anyway its fun and i love it
  • Hitsuzen by Methoxyethane [10k words] - basically todoroki and midoriya are having their first date and todoroki is Realizing Things. things like how it was inevitable that he would fall in love with midoriya, its great and its cute
  • yours, mine, ours by cityboys [45k words] - this is without a doubt, the best tododeku fic ive ever read in my life. this is actually a dual narrative story so there’s also momojirou going on at the same time as the tododeku and its fucking great. basically momo and todoroki are childhood friends and they fall in love with jirou and midoriya respectively and its very cute. honestly, this author fucking saved my life, everything they write is beautiful and i love
  • falling, falling, falling by celestialfics [1k words] - this is a 5 + 1 fic and idk how you feel about those fics but this one was rlly cute. basically its the five times todoroki wants to kiss midoriya but doesnt and the one time midoriya takes matters into his own hands and god its so good. 
  • that is just the way by celestialfics [6k words] - this is a fic where todoroki and midoriya have a sleepover and todoroki is pining throughout the whole thing. its very cute and sweet and a fun read
  • don’t care if the world knows by aknightley [8k words] - this is another 5 + 1 fic and this one actually has spoilers for the manga (from up to chapter 99), so if you haven’t read the manga then dont read this. basically its from the point of view of the other characters as they notice todoroki pine for midoriya real hard. its great.
  • sore must be the storm by Pouler (poulerslashes) [10k words] - so this one is a hurt/comfort fic which ik isnt what your looking for, but its still good so maybe give it a try. this takes place after a fight and midoriya and todoroki are stuck under a building and they talk things out before theyre saved. 

im sorry about all the long fics, its just those are my fave types of fics. anyways, i hoped this helped!!


Z Nation meme | four relationships [¼]  —– Murphy and Warren

I’m counting on you.

pc-the-unicorn  asked:

If you had to place money, tho do you think would kiss who first, Midoryia or Urakara?

Oh wow– Um, I would have to say Ochako would kiss Izuku first. I feel like Izuku would be a tad bit oblivious in regards to showing affection. I mean, I’m pretty sure he’s aware of it, but he probably doesn’t know how to initiate it himself? Whereas Ochako is more inclined to showing affection and getting her feelings across, I believe. Of course, both her and Izuku are pretty much a bit hesitant on stuff like kissing and whatnot since they’re so easily flustered. So if anything, I think it would take a bit of time for them to do stuff like that? But yeah, I’m pretty sure Ochako would be the one that musters the extra ounce of courage to give him a little peck– in comparison to Izuku who probably overthinks about making a move on her which ultimately gets him to opt out last minute due to nervousness. What dorks..

victuuri as parents, anyone?

  • blanket forts galore! they move furniture around and make a space big enough to fit a kid (later kids), two fairly tall dads, and one or two dog(s)
    • they lie on their stomachs with flashlights and read stories in excited, lilting voices of different characters until the whole group falls asleep on the plethora of pillows strewn on the floor
    • they may or may not wake up with giant red marks on their faces, but it just makes their mornings full of laughter
  • they have frequent family movie nights! they all sit on the couch with popcorn in their laps and enjoy the movie, but it always ends with three or four people asleep on the couch, huddled together in an extra big and warm blanket– and the dogs, of course. can’t forget their dogs
  • victor and yuuri love to hype up breakfast, especially! pancakes have syrup and fruit and bacon piled on top of it in the shape of a face, and waffle houses may or may not be built
  • victor and yuuri are soccer dads. whether or not their kid ends up picking up soccer is up in the air (its their choice and victor and yuuri will support their interest no matter what), but they’re definitely the first parents to volunteer to drive around their kids’ friends around when need be
  • their fridge is covered from top to bottom in various arts and crafts, and victor and yuuri love to sit down and just color with their kid(s)
  • can’t call it one of my headcanons unless i bring up the fact that victor and yuuri scrapbook everything! yet another scrapbook slowly but surely fills up with pictures from the first day they adopted their kid, to their first day in school, first time winning the spelling bee, first time on the ice… a lot of firsts, and a lot of birthdays, for sure
  • this is a little more personal, but i have an aunt who keeps a poster with the words “love yourself” by her kids’ bedside, and that’s absolutely something that victor and yuuri would do. like my aunt, they both remind their kids how much they love them, and above all, how much they should love themselves because self-love is incredibly important

Imagine raising a small plant with Wonwoo and seeing how much care and love he gives to the little thing.

montponine  asked:

they don't start "dating" so much as they just. fall into a relationship and all of a sudden they're holding hands and spending a lot of time together and kiSSING(!?) and neither of them really knows when it started but they don't care. james says i love you to everyone bc he's v affectionate but when he says i love you to lily it's Different and everyone can hear it it's not i love you it's I Love You every time no matter how small the scenario it's always I Love You

James is pretty sure he’s been in love with Lily Evans since the beginning of fifth year but then he realises that’s not love because you can’t love someone you don’t know. She’s just very very very attractive. Then the Incident happens and he doesn’t know how he feels and Lily is even more in the dark because they were friends except for when he was a cock but now all she feels when she looks at him is burning burning burning.

The summer cools her off and she doesn’t expect him when she gets back. Well, she does, she just doesn’t expect so much of him. He’s grown, again, and she’s not sure if he’ll ever stop, and it suits him. There’s less tripping and squeezing under desks. Finally, he seems able to actually control all of his limbs. He can’t control his eyes though. James finds them wandering to her during lessons, lunch, once even a quidditch match. She’s so easy to spot with wine red hair and eyes which don’t seem to want to meet his, but do anyway. She keeps noticing things about him, things that weren’t there before. Or maybe she just never let herself notice them before? It happens all the time and she hates that she loves it.

It’s easy. Being friends. Like picking up a book your mum used to read to you at bedtime. You think you’ve forgotten the words, but they all come flooding back. That’s how it feels. To have his arm over her shoulders, to duel with him in DADA, to steal toast from his plate, to save the strawberry botts for her, to watch him and only him on the pitch, to share Potions notes, to throw parchment notes at each other in History of Magic, to borrow his scarf, to hold her hand to help her across boggy Scottish soil. All of it, everything - it’s natural.

People start assuming they’re together. They stop being Lily Evans and James Potter and become Lily and James, addressed as one. Sirius rolls his eyes and becomes bitter, interrupting conversations and not moving to allow Lily a seat. Mary and Marlene giggle and wink at her whenever she sits besides him, the traitorous gits. Everyone knows something is up. Except for them.

Then it’s summer again and he’s so far away and she’s too far away and they write. They write too much to go unnoticed, by friends and then by parents. Mrs Evans try to be nonchalant as she asks who all these owls are from. Mr Potter ruffles James’ hair when Sirius points out that James is spending more time replying to letters then he is playing quidditch. There’s talk of meeting up, but it never happens. Lily never quite manages to draw up the courage to tell James which bus route to take. James always fails to write down where the spot for apparating to is. So they go all summer never seeing each other, except in familiar g’s and friendly scribbles which Lily has to spend ages deciphering into something legible.

September comes and they’re both wearing their badges and neither one is surprised but both are slightly hurt the other didn’t mention it. Excuses are useless so they just say well done and attempt to organise the prefects, even though Remus spends the whole meeting making suggestive gestures at one of them when the other isn’t looking. And nothing has changed. Except James is taller, again, and Lily’s hair is shorter and her boobs are bigger (but James definitely hasn’t noticed that), but they’re the same. No one blinks twice when they’re the only two left in the common room. Everyone is used to seeing them together, heads bent close, people uncertain if they’re discussing rotas or the latest transfiguration journal. It becomes customary that if Lily’s the only one on a sofa, the other half is reserved for James. If James falls asleep with her head in her lap, there’s nothing unusual about it.

People call them a couple and they don’t think to correct them, not having discussed it but sort of knowing anyway. She kisses him goodbye outside the Three Broomsticks once, a peck on the cheek, the Marauders going onto Zonko’s and the girls visiting Honeydukes. He blushes but she doesn’t and then that’s a thing too. It doesn’t take long before the kisses are on the forehead, the nose, the lips. Always gentle, quick and not really anything of note except, every time lips brush skin, their hearts race faster. So no one’s surprised when, with the excuse of mistle toe, a short and swift kiss becomes a long, soft and languid one. (Until Peter throws a cushion at them.)

They’re dating, going out, boyfriend and girlfriend. They’re every synonym for together and they’re happy. Every inch of them says ‘I love you’, but they never say it. And then they do. And it just happens, and their hearts beat faster, and their breath comes short, but they’re not surprised. They know, everyone knows, how could they not be in love? James says it first, casually and then not casually at all. Lily says it back, into his neck, his lips, his heart, both of them smiling like they’ve been given the sun on a string.

So they’re in love and it’s a shred of light in a world which keeps getting extinguished around them. They’re not sure how or when it happened but it did and when they have nothing they have each other, because that’s just how it is.

Adrinette Month Day 9: Akumatized

Soooo this got a lot longer than intended and it’s three days late and I’ve missed every other day including the past two days and probably today if I’m being realistic, but here’s my contribution anyways? 



Holding her breath, Marinette watches the shimmering mass of ladybugs cascade over Chat Noir’s body. With a swish, the last trace of the swarm disappears, and with it, the last trace of her hope. Chat is still motionless before her. Her fingers still come away sticky with blood when she presses them futilely against his wound.

Apparently every classic book, movie, and fairy tale was right. No amount of magic can bring back the dead.

Am I supposed to know them? I mean we never talked, we weren't friends so... I mean it's not like it matters I'll probably never see them again after this. Don't want to be weird. They probably have no idea who I am. I never formally met them, so I'll just say I don't know them. Yeah, let's go with that...

“Y/N you have to be my girlfriend this weekend!” Steve screams as he spots you seated in front of the library with a book in hand. You roll your eyes before closing the book. “Aren’t you already in a real relationship?”

“Yes but we aren’t in the ‘bring them home to meet the family’ stage yet and i’m honestly not sure we ever will be.”

“And why would I be doing this?”

“Because I’m your best friend and you love me and you don’t want to see a 24 year old 6’ foot tall man on his knees crying.” You did kind of wanna see a 6’ foot tall man on his knees crying that sounded amazing.

onetrappedunder  asked:

Hello Spud! I noticed that you put a lot of research on making your characters. How do you do it? Browsing wikipedia? Specific keywords on Google?

A big thing that I realized I made a mistake on when I was younger was drawing the character before I knew who they were. I’d create these designs and fall in love with the way they looked before I knew where they fit in my stories or how they were just as a individual themselves. I always find it much easier to have a concept of who this person is in reference to the world before I design them. It helps limit how many characters I put into the story, but at the exact same time allows them to be more meaningful in the story itself. 

When I make a character for a story its usually with a purpose in mind. ‘Are they an antagonistic individual?’ ‘Do they help the story progress?’ ‘What do they contribute?’  I usually start by asking myself questions. From there it is just a matter of researching. 
Google is certainly your best friend but be sure to get time relevant materials, and if you’re placing a story in a era or setting try and be accurate with what you’re displaying. You wouldn’t have someone walking around on their IPhone if they were in the 1920′s would you?

Let me give you a more complicated character I’ve made as an example: 

#reusing old art cause I don’t have time to draw a picture for this

How a character looks often is how they’re remembered, but a good design can lose its appeal if the character themselves isn’t interesting. Even this design isn’t 100% accurate as some folks might have noticed I draw Avelle in a different coat. 

When conceptualizing Avelle’s character I started by doing research into what it meant to be a lawyer in the 1930′s. With the prohibition age in full throttle there was quite a few folks that needed defending in court, if they hadn’t been shot first on the arrest. Not to mention that, this was the time that gave the opportunity for the first organized crime to rise into power. 

The first thing that most folks end up asking me about is either the halo horn he has, or his age. Let me clarify on one thing, I rarely add anything to a character that isn’t intended to be there for a purpose. Now that doesn’t have to be the case for every single detail you add to a design. You don’t need to know the story behind every scar on your character, however if its a detail that is immediately noticed upon viewing a character, especially if it stands out in silhouette then you might want to consider just why you’re adding that. 

To be a lawyer the real requirements out there is to have a middle and high school education, a degree, and then 2-4 years of law school after that. Now, anyone that is home schooled knows that you don’t necessarily need to go to school to learn. All it takes is to past that test at the end of the year to get your GED. Prove that you’re proficient enough to pass and get your degree. 

This is where Avelle’s age gets called into question, the boy is underage, not even really hitting puberty in its stride yet. Hell the kid has his baby fangs still those don’t pop out till he’s hitting that full stride growth spurt. 

This is part of the beauty of character creation, developing the reasons why something can exist the way it does. Even if that means simply that he has a natural understanding of the way justice is handled and it comes intuitively to him. 

As for google, try writing out just what you want this character you’re making to be. Start refining your search from there, finding time accurate images of individuals during that time is always a fantastic way to get inspiration for designs. However being open to flexibility as well can really drive home the originality of your concepts. 

Wikipedia is a mixed basket so make sure to have a second source before really referencing anything from there, just because you never know just how legitimate it is. 

And if you really want to do the extra mile, put yourselves in your characters shoes when it comes to what skill they might need. Get an understanding for who they are and what they do rather than trying to show it blindly. For Avelle I’ve actually done some research into legal documents to get a better understanding for how the justice system works. Once you have a better understanding you’ll have a far more in depth and realistic creation no matter how wild the concept.
Keeping in mind too it’s easy to toss around hook words about them, ‘they’re a psychopath’ ‘they’re a murderer’ do research into what that really means. It’s work, but its well worth it in the long run.
