Honestly i think that if Ouran Highschool Host Club just made the mistake of being ahead of its time. Had it come out recently it would’ve been praised for all the great and nicely subtle things that it included. 

For starters, it had a nonbinary protagonist, Haruhi basically states that they dont care what gender the others see them as. 

Then it goes on to be crammed full of jokes about other shoujo and general anime tropes. yeah other shows do this too, but this one straight up calls out the Harem debauchery tropes in one episode. its great 

not to mention there’s a transvestite character who calls out the stereotypes that surround drag queens, an all girls’ school full of lesbians (which i can attest to is true to real life), points out that the fetishization of gay people is obnoxious and wrong (Renge as a character is shown in a negative light whenever she acts like this), and i just love it. 

I hold this show really close to my heart. i wish it had gotten more seasons. 

Free hugs!

So Bunny-mun has a new outfit!

thought, to be honest, this just gives me a reason to draw bunny-mun hugging people like….

@midnightfoxgirl (aka the sister)

(my version) @shineclaw

@ru860201 (without being killed by her sans ^^”)

and finally

@qbanalras with a surprise hug!

If you want a hug don’t be afraid to ask for one! I promise I won’t bite~!

married part two- h.s imagine

you can read part one here

Harry managed to escape all his friends and family trying to congratulate him. He smiled at one of his guests as he made his way out onto the patio where the reception was being held. With everything going inside, the garden was bare of any guests. Harry let out a chuckle as his eyes instantly landed on his best friend. You were sitting on a bench, staring out into the sky, a glass of wine in your hands. Harry sat next to you, his shoulder softly nudging yours. “Found you.”

You let out a small smile, “Found me.”

Harry let out a sigh as he placed out his arms on the bench. “I can’t believe I’m married, Y/N.” You let out a nod as you looked into your wine glass. Harry chuckled, “Let me tell you, I was so nervous giving my vows but when I glanced over at you, you were crying a bloody mess so they must’ve been good.”

You rolled your eyes at the irony and shrugged your shoulders as you looked at Harry. “They were beautiful, Harry. Any girl would be lucky to hear those words from you.” Harry smiled as he turned to look at the church building behind him, “Lucky for Kimberly, she’s the only one I’ll say those words to.”

“Harry’s coming back from his honeymoon today.” Niall said, interrupting you from your thoughts.

You nodded your head as you picked at the plate of food in front of you. The two of you decided to meet for lunch today. Well, Niall dragged you out to lunch today. Since the wedding, he’s made sure to check up on one of his closest friends (You’ll always be grateful for Niall’s friendship). While he was happy for Harry, he only wished Harry could be as happy as he was with you instead of Kimberly.

“Have you talked to him? Since the wedding?” Niall asked, taking a bite of his own food. You shook your head no. “He’s called a couple of times but I couldn’t bring myself to pick up the phone.”

Niall nodded his head understandingly, feeling nothing but sympathy for his friend. He reached over and placed his hand on top of yours gently. “It’ll get easier, Y/N.”

You opened the door of your apartment. Your eyes instantly went wide, “Harry.” Harry’s arms were crossed, his eyebrow raised at you. “Oh so you are alive.” He remarked as he made your way into your apartment. You closed your eyes as Harry continued, “Cause you know. You never replied to my texts or calls.”

You chuckled as you walked into the kitchen, beginning to pour one of Harry’s favorite wine for the both of you. “Wanted you to enjoy your honeymoon, that’s all.” Harry shook his head, pulling out his phone and making his way over to you. “Nonsense. You know I love hearing from you.” He placed his phone in front of you, “Take a look at all the pictures I took.”

You took a sip before you grabbed his phone. As you scrolled through the beautiful pictures Harry took from traveling around Europe, you landed on a picture of Harry and Kimberly kissing while the camera was facing them. You cleared your throat as you handed Harry his phone back, “Looks like you guys had fun.”

Harry nodded his head excitedly, “It was amazing, Y/N. Whenever you get married, you should definitely do the same thing.”

You let out a scoff mixed in with a laugh as you sat down on the couch. “I’m not planning on getting married any time soon.”

Harry placed himself on the spot directly next to yours. “Why not?”

You shrugged your shoulders as you stared at the wall. “My heart is a little sensitive at the moment.”

Harry sat a little straighter, “Are you seeing anyone?” You were about to answer before Harry interrupted, “Is it Niall?”


“Don’t think I didn’t notice how close you guys were at the wedding.”


“That would be so cool if you guys were to get married someday. Do you think Niall would ask me to be the best man?”

“Harry!” You yelled, hitting his chest. Harry smiled. “Sorry, love. I got a bit excited.”

You let out a chuckle, “Niall and I aren’t dating. He was just keeping me company.” Harry let out a little pout, “That’s a shame. I reckon you and him would be perfect together.”

Your eyes shifted to the floor, “I don’t think so.” I thought you and me would be perfect together.

Harry patted his hands against his thighs, “Well, I didn’t come here just to scowl at you for not answering my calls.” Harry gave you a pointed look. “Kimberly and I wanted to take you out to dinner tonight.”

You raised your eyebrow, “Kimberly wants me at dinner?” You never got the best vibe from Kimberly but you could never tell Harry that. It would break his heart knowing his best friend didn’t approve of someone he was potentially going to spend the rest of his life with. So, you bit your tongue and said Kimberly was great.

“Of course she does. She loves you,” Harry said. You settled more into the couch. “I don’t know, Harry.”

“Come on, Y/N! I want to proper catch up with you.” Harry whined as he grabbed your hands. You sighed as a smile fought its way onto your face. “Fine.”

To say dinner was awkward was an understatement. You were trying to enjoy Harry’s stories about traveling to all the different cities him and Kimberly went to on the honeymoon, but you felt as though Kimberly was throwing daggers at you. You felt like everything you said, Kimberly would throw some sly remark. You mentioned how you wish you saw the Eiffel Tower in real life, she would say how much fun her and Harry had. You asked Harry if he had a chance to check out the restaurant in Barcelona you guys saw on food network, she said her and Harry had an amazing time at the restaurant. It seemed like she made sure you knew they were together.

“I’m going to use the loo really quickly,” Harry excused himself. You mentally cursed him out in your head. You cleared your throat as you looked at Kimberly, “So. What city was your favorite on the honeymoon?”

Kimberly cleared her throat and pushed her plate away from her. “Y/N. I don’t want to come off as mean or cruel.”

You raised your eyebrow at her, beckoning for her to go on.

“I know that you have feelings for Harry.” She raised her hand in front of you. “This ring means that all the girls he knew, all the girls he encountered, he chose me. That means he chose me over you.”

i wish, but i could never. skellydun is my brand. I’m only heavily anime on here. can’t let everyone in real life know how nerdy i am. its my best kept secret. in real life I’m like whats anime? i don’t know or watch any annie memes. 

while learning about the real author of my immortal is interesting and all, im just glad to hear shes alive and living her life–and from what is now unfortunately public knowledge she’s a pretty cool person who has accomplished a lot and is a published writer and its pretty inspiring, yeah

 but i also do wish people had just. let her be? i know we were all dying to know more about her but she’s her own person who has moved on from that time in her life and hunting her down like that was :/// 

anyways i dont have much else to say other than please remember she’s a real human being, not a spectacle,  and to treat her with respect, especially since its been over 10 years and people grow and change. and that i hope shes doing well with all this going on.

Gift Giving

Originally posted by iamjaynaemarie

Summary: Kili gives you gifts and you make a decision to give him one in return.

Pairings: Kili x Reader

Word Count: 1,522

A/N: Like I said last night, I made a different drabble based on a request. 

Master List   

The training room was hot for an empty room. You supposed it was a good thing because it would make the dwarf warriors more bearable to the outside weather.

You were currently in there for your sparring session with King Thorin. 

After the mountain was reclaimed, you and your father, one of the dwarf lords that was alive during the sack of Erebor, moved from the Iron Hills back to the Lonely Mountain and took up residence in your father’s old childhood home.

You were happy that your father had finally got reunited with his old ancestral home but you knew deep down that he was disappointed with you.

You were the most un-dwarrowdam-like dam in the history of un-dwarrowdams-like dams. You were to put it shortly very Tom boy preferring trousers over dresses and sparring over men and your father had lost hope of ever having heirs until you met Kili.

You had found the training room one day and practiced using your bow and arrow, another disappointment to your father due to the fact that no dwarf used arrows, which you now know is not true.

Kili had found you that day and you almost shot him when he interrupted you. After him apologizing and you also apologizing, you two got on like a house on fire and started courting four months after your first meeting which is why you were currently in the training room with Thorin.

After 6 months of courting his nephew, he wanted to get to know you better and had asked Fili if he knew what you were interested in. Fili had suggested a spar session and he jumped at that opportunity. He had thought you were one of those dams that liked to gossip and shop. He didn’t want to deal with that and was glad that he didn’t have to.

“Aren’t you going to take breather?” Thorin asks as you go for your bow and arrows. “This is taking a breather, my lord,” you tell him as you steady your breathing while loading your bow.

Thorin chuckles from his spot on the bench, taking a sip of water from his flask. You were an amazing fighter and he has wished that you had joined them on the journey, but being the only daughter of a very high dwarf lord does hinder things.

You aim for the target, closing one eye and bring the fletching level with your eye line. You steady your movements ready to let go.

“Y/N!” A voice shouts and that breaks your concentration and your grip. You wince as the arrow hits the stone behind, arrowhead breaking.

“For Mahal’s sake,” you groan as you turn to the door that had just slammed open. You ignore Thorin’s snicker as Kili comes bounding up to you.

“Hello amralime,” he says, wrapping his arms around your waist and pressing a kiss on your cheek earning a groan of disgust as you think about all the sweat on your body.

“Kee I’m in the sweatiest possible state right now. I don’t think you want to kiss me,” you grumble. “I’d love to kiss you when you’re sweaty,” he says lowly and you smile at him.

“Ahem,” Thorin coughs from his spot on the bench. Kili looks at him then back at you.

“Right. So I have a surprise,” he says, backing away and it’s then that you realize he has something attached to his back. He removed it and it’s a quiver full of arrows.

“I made these for you. They’re not the best but-,”

"Oh Kili I love them,” you say, grabbing them from his hand and pressing a kiss on his cheek. He smiles shyly down at you.

“Well I just wanted to stop by to give you that,” he says, pressing a kiss to your lips and jogging out. You shake your head at him and turn to Thorin who has his arms crossed.

“I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to throw up this much in my entire life,” Thorin states and you stick your tongue out at the king.

“I bet you’re happy that he’s happy,” you say, notching the new arrow Kili gifted you with.

“What else would I be?” Thorin asks, sneaking up behind you and moving your elbow so you don’t quite hit the target. You glare at him.

“You are just like your nephews,” you say and he shrugs not denying it. Soon, with your newly made arrows, the both of you are parting ways with you in dire need of a bath. When you get home, you find your father already making dinner, something that you typically did.

“Hello, adad,” you say, kissing him on his cheek. “Hello sweetheart. How was your day with the king?” He asks

“We just spent it sparring and I got a new gift from Kili,” you say, holding up the arrows that you wanted to show him.

He smiles and takes the arrows in his hand.

“Go and bathe. You look like you need it,” he says and you laugh, doing what he has told. When you get out of the bath, there is a new wrapped item on the dining room table.

“What is this?” you ask as you take a seat.

“No idea. Prince Fili came by to drop it off while you were in the bath,” your father says as he paces a plate of food in front of you.

You open up the card that was placed on the top and you laugh as you read the message.

“Kili wanted me to give this to you and I have to say you’re both so in love that it’s actually gross. Love your favorite Durin, -Fili.”

You open up the box and there are a new pair of daggers. You’ve been meaning to ask someone to craft you some but you had no time and now you didn’t need to.

Your father chuckles, shaking his head.

“You know, these weren’t the kinds of gifts I gave your mother while we were courting,” He says, taking a seat.

“Well, you know me and mother, we’re not the same person,” you say, planning on what to give Kili since he’s already gifted you with a lot. But what do you get a prince who has everything?

“Aye. You are not,” your father says and with that the both of you fall into a comfortable silence.

A few days later, you find Kili in the throne room with Fili and Thorin with a gift in hand

“Amralime. I wasn’t expecting you,” Kili says, pressing a kiss to your lips. That earns a groan from Fili and you flip him off, earning a grin from Thorin. Let’s just say he was excited to have you in the family.

“I just thought I’d stop by and give you these,” you say, handing him a small box while making his hair neater. You sometimes wondered if he even took care of his hair.

“You didn’t have to,” he says, giving you a small smile. “I just thought I’d give you something since you gave me such beautiful gifts,” you say, watching as he opens the box.

You watch nervously as he looks at the gifts. Maybe it was a bad decision? Maybe he wasn’t going to like it and now you were regretting it. The smile on his face grows wider as he looks at you with tears clouding his eyes.

“Is this real?” he asks, taking your hand in his. “Of course amralime, I want to spend my life with you,” you tell him as he takes out your courting beads.

It was a part of dwarven culture that while the male gives the female courting beads at the beginning of the courtship, it was up to the female to solidify the courtship by gifting the male with her own courting beads. (I just made this up. Its not canon or anything.)

“I do wish you had taken more care into your hair,” you grumble, trying to find a perfect place to braid your beads.

You had spent the last three days in the forge creating your own courting beads with the help of Bofur, the dwarf you met thanks to Kili.

“Oh. This is happening isn’t it? They’re finalizing it aren’t they?” Fili asks excitedly, bouncing on the balls of his feet. He already liked you as a sister and it hurt his heart that Kili had the doubt of you would turn him down and he was really excited for this moment.

“Quiet down and stop bouncing,” Thorin says, hitting his nephew to make him stop. Fili glares at him and his attention turns back to you two.

You had already braided one head into his hair and when you finish the second braid, you smile at him.

“It’s not the best, but it’ll do,” you say, flicking his hair. Kili smiles down at you. “Either way, I love it,” he says, wrapping his arms around your waist and lifting you above him and you smile before placing a kiss on his lips, ready to spend the rest of your life together.

You know whats sad? 

I can’t imagine characters with diabetes. I can’t read headcannons about TV characters with diabetes, unless they are general and about the world they live in. I can’t picture diabetes in a sci-fi or fantasy world without wincing and cutting off the thought. 

I don’t know why. 

Maybe because its effects are real to me. Maybe because I don’t wish this on anyone. 

Or maybe because I just don’t see diabetics represented in the media in a positive way just about anywhere. 

I want those characters. I want to feel like my disease isn’t ridiculed or laughed at. I don’t want to hear “diabeetus” jokes or see overweight people as the stupid laughable diabetic friend. 

Maybe I just want someone to write someone like me. 

The real smartphone hour

On Prompto being a “clone”

…..what kind of clone? Because theres three different kinds of clones.

You can clone for human tissues (therapeutic), Gene cloning (little fragment) and reproduction cloning. Since Prompto is in fact an entire human, and not a tissue, and Besithia states Prompto is *his* clone, I’m going to say hes a  full-reproduction.

Which brings up several questions and implications. Firstly, there still needs to be a “mother” involved – that is to say a human egg cell. To clone a mammal you need to have an egg cell that’s been emptied of its nucleus DNA and then “re-filled” with the DNA that the scientist wishes to clone. So to make a Prompto, you need a human egg cell, a somantic cell from Besithia , and a whole lot of funding. (more on that in a second) The embryo develops in a tet tube and is then implanted into a human female.  Or I suppose in the case of fantasy – those test tubes things? The closet thing to that IRL is a Biobag which incubated several sheep.  The baby born/unsealed is a clone.

Now for the funding issues, In real life clones are unstable, unpredictable and can have a myriad of health problems.  Back when Dolly the Sheep was a thing, she was the first of around 300 organisms cloned that actually lived. Clones are known to have defects in liver, brain and heart, as well as issues with their immune systems and premature aging. The Premature aging thing is interesting because  Besithia was already older when Prompto was born.  So a bit of back ground: as cells go through their normal rounds of division for growning and remaining, ya know, alive, the tips of their chromosomes (telemeres) shrink. Aging happens because over time the telemeres become so short that the cells can no longer divide and thus, cell death. Issue being with clones, their chromosomes are already shorter. If you clone from a  cell taken from an adult you condemn the clones’ cells to a shorter life span. Dolly the sheep for instance,had chromosomes that were shorter than those of other sheep her age and died at half the life span of a normal sheep.

As I said in my previous post, Prompto isn’t made to live long.

Edit to add that you CAN technically get a clone from a non-human primate via splitting of embryos. But that brings the question of Who is the Mother? Unless they were harvesting women for eggs/incubation and then turning into a Daemon?


So I’m starting the armor beginning with the shoulder. I’m really excited!!! Its so funny. When I started making my Labradorite outfit I never thought it would end up looking so close to my character Zal, it was just supposed to be an outfit based on the gem and him, not /him/, which don’t get me wrong, it still is! so its not exact but lol haha, the more I work on it, the closer it is to his design. XD

Its all because I found the jacket on eBay that was like too much uncanny to his character design, a design I made back in high school. Sure my jacket in real life isn’t perfectly the same but its close enough!!! xD and now the overall outfit is pretty much Zal.

But anyways!!! I’ve never made armor before! Tomorrow is going to be the first time I try worbla and EVA foam! Wish my luck!

Former Doctor Who Peter Davison says casting of woman means 'loss of role model for boys'
A former Doctor Who actor has hit out at the BBC’s decision to cast Jodie Whittaker in the role, saying that the decision meant there is “a loss of a role model for boys”.

Someone in the comments summed it up perfectly:

Eric Mattie: 21 Jul 2017 3:56PM

Peter Davison’s comments have been on the mark and empathetic among a flood of disrespectful tactless replies from people who months ago were crying out for  tolerance and acceptance “NOW”.  Real life change takes time. So will this.

His Tweet: “It might be more helpful to be encouraging, and not simply scornful, of fans who are uncertain about change.” has been the silver lining in this deluge of cryout out

Now these comments are again on target to why its sad. Not morally wrong. Just a mourning of a role model for boys.

I appreciation a male hero actually still being portrayed rightly and not being the butt of every joke. I do value and wish for a better portrayal of men in general that goes beyond the a typical generalization that say guys are this or guys are that and that’s it.  I feel  Doctor Who in the past decade has done a great job of portraying are more well rounded male her

Respectfully- Colin Baker is wrong.  Proof?  The media wouldn’t be having the reaction of the little girl screaming in delight about the casting of a girl, as their validation video to the world at large and them saying “The video says it all”

If role models were gender neutral and just as people, than the switch of lead actresses as heroines  over the last several years (think Alias, Hunger Games, NewStar Wars films and the overall  great reception to the Wonder Woman movie) would not be as celebrated and actually planned out and pushed like it has been.  

What is sad is in the name of getting better role models for girls we have to squash and not have the role model for boys be just as validated and important.
