anonymous asked:

can you draw some Sonny n Graffiti Pete Valentine's Day love !! I wanna surprise my girlfriend she loves them more than me

getting pete to accept that sonny actually likes him is a full time job

Guys. Adrien loves Marinette SO MUCH. HE LOVES HER.

He’s dying to know her identity but he respects her wishes to keep it a secret. He stares at her like she’s the entire universe. He blushes like an idiot when she talks to him. He wrote her a sappy love poem and tried to confess on Valentine’s Day. He has RISKED HIS LIFE FOR HER MULTIPLE TIMES. He says she’s the only one who’s allowed to control him (jokingly, but he totally means it). He thinks she’s amazing. He face planted on his bed when he screwed up his chance to tell her how he felt. He loves it when she scratches his chin and dings his bell and calls him kitty. When he thought she’d been eaten by a dinosaur he was so distraught he skipped the fist bump and HUGGED HER. He’s kissed her hand and held her close and he 100% wants to kiss her and hold her close more often

and he may not know that it’s Marinette but it IS Marinette and he loves her so much hELP

This is so so important and beautiful. And important. And beautiful.

man but honestly few things fuck me up as much as when adam says in trb “i think you’ll find i do pretty much everything quiet”, because on one hand, as a massive introvert, i super relate– but on the other hand, when you think about the heartbreaking implications of that sentence, it’s like, fuck. fuck, of course you do

you laugh quietly because your dad is always angry, you cry quietly because the neighbors don’t care about your bruises; you’re quiet about your achievements because the kids from the trailer park don’t really care about your straight As, and you’re quiet in school because you’re ashamed of your accent; you think quietly because it makes it easier to pull apart your emotions and sort them into logical containers, and you love quietly because you don’t quite know how yet, and because in the dusty back roads of henrietta, virginia, a boy who loves girls and boys is not quite safe.

you brave, lonesome boy, of course you do everything quiet; how could it be otherwise? 

the main reason I love alex ovechkin is that he’s so unapologetic for who he is?? he’s a really really good player and he knows that very well, and he loves himself and isn’t afraid to show that to people. still, he isn’t selfish, he cares about others - his teammates, fans etcetc. and it’s wonderful

and i’m like…..so done seeing people call him a douche for recognizing the talent in himself and bringing that up. besides, he wouldn’t be where he is now without the effort his brother sergei, who passed away when alex was 10, put into getting him to practice and I think that most of his love for himself and his talent is also love for his brother. one of his childhood friends has even said that sergei is the reason why alex is so passionate on the ice and I just?? how COULD you still dislike this man

On Keith and leaving Allura behind

One thing I’ve always wanted to clear up is the ‘Keith is cold-hearted’ thing. I can see how the scene of him being ready to leave Allura behind might come across as such, to quote Hunk: “Keith, that’s cold-hearted even for you.” 

But that is not how things actually are. Let me explain why he acted the way he did back then, because Keith has had just as many emotions about it as everyone else. 

Keith is rational, observant and tends to state stuff exactly as it is, with all facts lied out to make sure that everyone gets the whole picture. (see: how he explained his board in s1e1, how he argues with Lance at the beginning of s1e3 etc.) He has been known to accept critique pretty well - he actively tries to work on his temper (“patience yields focus”) and accepted that Lance’s plan was better than his in s1e7. In turn, however, he expects people to treat him the same way. If there isn’t any evidence to contradict it, he takes things people tell him at face value and accepts them as facts. It is one of the reasons him and Lance clash often, Keith can be found constantly correcting Lance’s statements and Lance doesn’t appreciate that. 

This is coupled with his rational personality. I have no doubt that part of that comes from having been forced to grow up without a family and people to comfort him when he was feeling lost, he has had to deal with reality screwing him over quite a lot of times already. He is extremely cautious and protective of his friends when a possible threat appears (see: how he placed himself in front of the team when Klaizap appeared in s1e2), probably exactly because he knows that when they are gone, they are gone. That happened to his dad, that happened to Shiro. 

And now he thinks the same thing has happened to Allura.

It is not that he doesn’t want to help her - because he does. He really does, he even said so himself. (And he wasn’t lying. We all know that Keith is an absolutely horrible liar.) In his mind, there were four facts battling with one another: 1) I want to save my friend; 2) “the ship that is headed to Zarkon’s central command?” “the place that’s way too dangerous for us to attack?” (a direct quote from an exchange between Hunk and Keith from s1e10. Keith had accepted that information a fact); 3) we are fighting against an enemy we know next to nothing about; and 4) I am responsible for the entire universe and I can only protect it with Voltron, for which Allura technically isn’t essential. 

So he stands there and goes through all the facts. And he comes to the - absolutely logical - conclusion that it is too dangerous to go to Zarkon’s headquarters. He could lose even more friends. He could lose the universe’s only hope. So he does what he always does: suppress his emotions for the greater good. He did that there, he did it when he decided to give up the blade in s2e8.

But then the others turn against him. We can’t see his face when they begin to vehemently protest against his statement-

-but I have no doubt that it would be serious and reflective. The backlash would have made him reconsider the conclusion he had come to. Because that’s what he does when he faces critique: take a step back and reevaluate. Obviously, fact 2) wasn’t quite right. [Also note how open his body language is, he is more than willing to discuss this.] 

And once the execution of their plan starts, which means an actual chance for getting his friend back, he is right at the front of the group again. 

Keith isn’t cold-hearted. Not at all. Does this look like the face of a cold-hearted person to you?

Because that is the face he made when he came to the conclusion that it would be too dangerous to save Allura. He is not happy about it. He genuinely believed that she was already lost and they were about to condemn the universe for a suicide rescue mission. If there is anything he can do to save his friends, he will do it. Like, seriously - he had never seen Zarkon before that episode. For all he knew, Zarkon could be 5ft tall, wield magic and be immortal. But as soon as he saw a normal-sized Galra in armor, Zarkon suddenly became less of an abstract concept and more of something that he has an actual fighting chance against. Look at how his attitude towards him changed in season 2, at the end of it he volunteered to infiltrate Zarkon’s base on his own!  

(Also. He was the one that asked Allura if she was sure that she wanted to come with them: “I’m sorry, princess, did you say ‘we’?!” in s1e10. He was worried for her. There is no way he didn’t want her back.)

Keith constantly watches out for the greater good. It’s what he told Pidge when she wanted to leave to go look for her family - “everyone in the universe has families!” - and what he did when he gave up finding out about his past in the Trials of Marmora. He pushes his own emotions down because he genuinely believes one person’s life and/or comfort isn’t worth putting the entire universe at risk. And that does not equal being cold-hearted.

tl;dr: Keith has had perfectly valid reasons why he hesitated to go on the rescue mission. He wanted her back just as much as everyone else. He is not a cold-hearted asshole.

I know this aired about 84 years ago and that I’m late making these gifs, but I can’t stop thinking about youngbae saying ‘we thought about what we could do to cheer him up’… 

I have this image of the rest of bb forming a separate Whatsapp group to come up with ways to cheer seunghyun up, and then when they started consistently messaging him ‘we miss you’ and drinking wine in his honour 😢 [x] [x] [x]

For the football fandom: Name one (active) player you wish you could bring back to your favorite club 🤔

Happy 26th birthday, Thiago! (11.04.1991)

it amazes me that the mcu fandom literally calls tony stark a murderer despite his entire first movie’s plot being about realizing how dangerous his company had become and then doing something about it for the greater good of the people (all while risking the future of stark industries) and then dehumanizes him by calling him a monster for his realistic severe anxiety and ptsd (because yes, the attack at the beginning of iron man is enough to give anyone ptsd, INCLUDING trained soldiers. never mind being held captive for all that time).

but then we have bucky (whom i love), one of hydra’s brainwashed, trained assassins. this fandom does nothing but romanticize his brainwashing, over glorifying his skills as a blood stained assassin and sympathizing with the shifts in his brain that were physically caused by hydra.

bucky would have been bucky without hydra. tony stark, on the other hand, has a mental illness that he literally cannot do anything about.

the fandom views bucky as a man who severely needs help. they view tony stark as an absolute monster.

thus, we have a clear example of how the mcu fandom literally does not give a fuck about actual mental illnesses and only cares about them if they aren’t ugly in any way.

“You might want money. Maybe you want women. Or, you might want to protect the world. These are all common things people want. Things that their hearts desire. Greed may not be good, but it’s not so bad, either. You humans think greed is just for money and power! But everyone wants something they don’t have.”

“Child of Calamity and Light, born to bring salvation to the world.”

Elmer C. Albatross + epithets 

I should probably explain what I’m actually criticizing about Thomas here.

Someone replied to this post saying that the anon was passive aggressive, which is fair, and that I’m making it out to seem like Thomas is a terrible person.

Now, I don’t think Thomas is a terrible person. HOWEVER; starting an argument with a paragraph the way he did, claiming that he knows this person must be struggling with their identity and he hopes they find support, none of which was ever implied by the anon, is an emotionally manipulative tactic to set himself up as The Good Guy. I don’t care about the anon, but I expect better of someone like Thomas Sanders. He’s famous, and lots of people look up to him. Him using this tactic makes it seem acceptable.

The paragraph setting him up as The Good Guy makes it to where, if you disagree with him, you’re an asshole. He even implies that the person that disagrees with him in the first place has something wrong that causes him to disagree, that he’s struggling with his identity. That’s a dick thing to do because you’re implying that people can’t disagree with you without having something wrong with them.

His actual argument itself is flawed it that he uses the acronym as LGBTQIA+ and the anon uses LGBT. They have to establish a common ground in the already existing community to go further, which Thomas doesn’t do. Then he says the community isn’t about oppression, but… the LGBT community is made up of groups of people who joined together to fight the oppression against them and support each other. Then, he virtue signals about how accepting his is, which is another emotionally manipulative tactic.

If you want to argue that asexuals should be included in the LBGT community, sure, go ahead, have at it! But leave emotionally manipulative tactics out of it. Make good points instead of guilt tripping people into agreeing with you.

Wallace says, “I can’t believe I missed you,” and, “Say my name again,” like he’s finally figured out that ‘Wallace’ is and has always been a term of endearment.

Have you all read @pantstomatch ‘s sequel to her book “Whatever”? Because if you haven’t, you’re wrong (and it’s right here x)
