i'm just having a lot of feelings ok

Off Colors and the Crystal Gems

Quick quick post before sleep - there are some distinct parallels between the Off Color crew and the original Crystal Gems.

First of all, they have quite a similar collection of gem types as they did in the group when Steven was born (a Ruby, a Sapphire, and a Pearl), just in a slightly different formation.

A “defective” former functionary

A “scandalous” outlaw fusion. (Obvious color-scheme overlap)



And a “freak” who came out wrong (interesting that Ame’s whip has two pointed heads on the end…)

Then, you have their “leader,” a much larger, gentle-seeming gem with a mixed, mysterious past…


Yeah, that feels intentional. (Also… “Fluor”ite - sounds a lot like “fleur,” right?)

here we are now, with the falling sky and the rain
     we’re awakening ♪

one of the scenes I would really love to see (as I’m sure many people have thought of!) is Rey experiencing her first rainfall ☺ also because “Awakening” has become one of my theme songs for TFA and all the new kids, there’s something about it which is very beautiful and fits so well thematically ;;

AND BONUS PIC: Finn + Rey (+ Poe’s jacket of a thousand uses (〃▽〃) )

So what's this about Simon Says being episode 10? Doesn't seem that big of a deal. Only ones out of place are the Origins on Netflix and those were always all over the place to begin with. That said, it shouldn't be too hard to navigate for any casual new viewer.

Well i mean… they’re not the only ones. i’ve only watched the first two eps, and already it’s got a pretty obvious error.

Ep1 is Stormy Weather, which is cool. It’s a good intro point cos it spells out a lot of things and the duo are still kinda clumsy/feeling out their dynamic. A+++ intro ep, 5 fists of the north star.

 But then… ep 2 is Evillustrator? For some reason??? Evillustrator opens with Nathanael drawing/daydreaming about saving Marinette from Stormy Weather and…what’s this, Alya as a villain? Does he not like Alya? what is this?

Now, as a person who has seen the show, I know it’s Lady Wifi. Cool for me, who knows why he pictures her this way, but for someone who has never seen it, it’s a bit confusing…like, gosh, what does he have against Alya??? But when the Lady Wifi ep rolls around, what? I guess he’s clairevoyant? lmao no, anyone with half a brain is immediately going to realize it’s just completely out of order, that’s all. and it’s off putting when that happens. [note: it happens on netflix with other shows sometimes too (usually an ep or two) and it’s always, always annoying]… all the other versions at least have some semblance of an order. Lady Wifi is before Evillustrator in every other country, for obvious reasons. 

and mind you i have only watched the first two eps, i’m sure there’s more and i’m justggfdjghdk

Okay sorry for that tangent lol. onward to your actual question… you asked about Jackady (Simon Says). And the thing with this episode, is that is heavily implies that Gabe has figured out his son is Chat Noir. 

[gifs from this post]

Like. 

Very, very heavily.

There is no way around that. He knows. Hawkmoth or not, Gabriel at least suspects it’s the ring [which he knows about because he has a book on the miraculous]. 

Now…the problem with this being episode 10? It’s because after this, the rest of the season, he’s just gone. He’s not seen again until the final episode lol. Bubbler is episode 9 [so right before this one]. And Mr Pigeon [the only other ep he really appears in] is episode…5? 6? I forget. 

Again…Hawkmoth or not, it seems really…odd??? for it to be so early on lol. For him to know for all that time and do literally nothing about it. And don’t pull the “lol but he doesn’t care what Adrien does” cos i will fight you. He’s distant and yes totally neglectful and downright emotionally abusive [tho unintentionally i imagine] but he’s not a heartless monster. He cares about his kid.  

But yea, originally it was episode …18?? for the english version [according to the wiki], which is a bit better. French version was directly before Volpina, the ep in which he is studying the book with the miraculous in it [probably researching whether or not he was correct about the ring lol]…it’s just like, the further away from Volpina the ep is, the less sense it makes to me??? It loses it’s relevance the further away it gets, so it just really fuckin baffles me. 

Also, as a personal note, i could honestly ramble and rant about the Agreste family drama for days, cos it’s literally my favourite aspect of the show… i love it more than the love square, i love it more than fuckin adrino and chloenette, i love it more than butts i love it more than air. so just… mashing it all together right in the beginning, instead of spreading it out and letting it breathe a little…. idk it just fuckin gets to me ok? it bothers me a lot.

But maybe that’s just me tho.

guess who ;)

me: *sifting through asks && compiling*
me: oh! ____ changed their icon. so cute!

***yes i remember most people who are regulars in my ask box :D i also pay attention to the usernames and icons because wow some can be really cute and witty and idk all of you just make my entire week every time ok ;;o;; ♥ ♥ ♥

lots of love!!! ♥

  • Friend: Hey are you ok?
  • Me: Yeah I'm fine
  • My brain: Can we all just take a moment and realize what life would of actually been like if Connor didn't kill himself? I mean Connor was the only one to sign Evans cast and he even said "let's pretend we both have friends" he knows that Evan isn't a very social person and can't make a lot of friends either so Connor would most likely go back to Evan from time to time. Evan would feel a little awkward at first but would probably start to confide in Connor, thinking of him as a support system and the only one there for him and Connor would think the same about Evan. After time I bet they would become best friends and probably be bullied by everyone. They would go through times where they feel like they should just go away and not live anymore but they would never do it without telling the other first because they know that the other is going through the same thing and that they will know how to help. Soon they would start dating. They would secretly think of themselves as the perfect pair while everyone just looked at them and say "those freaks are meant for each other!" But they know why they are the perfect pair. It's because they can trust one another and can be there for one another and they know that if one of them decides that they want to leave and forget all the pain in their lives the other one would never be the same. They will both stay strong for each other. For forever.
  • Me: *tearing up* I'm totally fine

anonymous asked:

Hello! I'm a curious anon who wants to be not ignorant on asexuality cause i gotta be a good ally, so i was wondering if you could explain it? sometimes i get confused like, they say asexual people also have sex but i thought that would negate asexuality? also how do you know you're asexual, how do you know the difference between romantic attraction and sexual attraction? sorry if i'm asking a lot of questions i just wanna be Educated™

hey there, sunshine!!! OK, let me explain EVERYTHING. 

hmmm.

so, asexuality is when a person does not feel sexual attraction to other people. sexual attraction is - this is kind of hard for me, as I’m ace myself, to explain it without it sounding a bit weird, maybe?! - but it’s the feeling of looking at someone and being turned on by them, I guess? the feeling of looking at them and wanting to have sex with them, and feeling aroused by the idea of having sex with them. this is something that asexual people do not feel.

this is separate from feelings of romantic attraction, which is not to do with sex and all to do with intimacy of heart - and how you express that romantic intimacy varies from person to person. for a lot of people, it involves stuff like kissing and holding hands and going on dates and flowers and stuff. pretty much, if it’s your heart going !!!!!! then it’s romantic, and if it’s your down-there lair going !!!!!!!!, then that’s sexual.

asexuality, like many sexualities, is not an absolute: it’s a spectrum! the spectrum of asexuality includes - but is not limited to - demisexuality (being attracted to someone only after a strong emotional bond has been formed with them), grey-asexuality (feeling sexual attraction to other people very rarely, or very weakly, or a combination of both), and asexuality itself, which is simply never feeling sexual attraction.

as for the question about sex negating asexuality, there are many reasons an asexual person might have sex:

  • to experience physical intimacy with someone they care about a lot, even if they are not sexually attracted to them
  • because they know their partner enjoys it, and they get enjoyment out of pleasing their partner
  • because not feeling sexual attraction doesn’t mean not feeling sexual arousal. you can be asexual but still want to have sex, it’s just that you’re not able to find someone you particularly want to have sex with. I’ve seen an analogy that goes like this: you know that feeling where you’re hungry, and you open the cupboard, and everything you see you’re like… nah… but you’re still hungry? yeah, that. eventually you might end up eating something that you don’t feel especially drawn to, just because you’re hungry.
  • because sex can be really fun! even if you’re not attracted to your partner, sex can be enjoyable (and I am speaking from experience here)
  • to have kids! some asexual people want to raise a family.
  • on a less positive note, society kind of demands sex of people. it’s seen as a young person’s rite of passage, as the cementing of romantic feelings, as a given in any long-term relationship. it’s something that friends bond over, their sex stories; it’s part of drinking games, it’s often part of TV and books and movies, it’s a whole world that demands to be understood or else you risk feeling like - and being treated like - a child. asexual people may feel pressured to have sex, even when not wanting to, just to fit in. this is a not-cool reason.

that is absolutely not an exhaustive list but hopefully it gives you some idea of some reasons why ace people might have sex! still very much asexual before, during, and after.

lastly, you ask how people know they’re asexual… this one is kind of hard to answer. personally, I figured it out pretty late. I’d always assumed that everyone was kind of deciding to be attracted to people, like I was, and it was only after some revealing conversations with friends that I realised - no, most people don’t have to try to force attraction with decisions, it just happens naturally. 

often, the Realisation Process begins with doing a little bit of reading and recognising yourself in the things you’re learning! if you want to know more, I seriously recommend AVEN - click here! - a website which has a crap ton of info!! thank you for your question, I appreciate you wanting to learn and be a good ally - it makes all the difference to have educated, accepting allies out there in the big wide world. you’re wonderful, and hope I helped! <3

Hi friends! I just wanted to announce that I’ll be gone from tumblr for a couple of days mostly to finish the namjin arc but also to rest my hand and my soul. I’ve been feeling slightly overwhelmed lately which is no one’s fault! Everyone’s been super nice. But my following has grown a lot since I started like a month ago-ish?? And I feel like I have to one up each comic I do so that I don’t disappoint, which I know shouldn’t be the way I should be thinking. So yeah, I just need to take it slow and steady and press that rl refresh button for a bit.

I’m honestly so thankful for everyone who has supported me so far! You guys have been amazing. I read all of your asks and my heart swells every time. Feel free to keep talking to me on my ask! I’ll occasionally check~

anonymous asked:

I'm having a hard time figuring out my sexuality right now. I'm a young teen so I don't know if its just a phase. How can I tell if I'm just confused?

you can’t tell
AND
here’s the best part:
You don’t have to.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE A “GOOD EXCUSE” FOR BEING YOURSELF.
It would be 100% ok if your sexuality or gender is fluid; that’s how a lot of people experience themselves. If you feel one way one day and another way the next, THAT’S PERFECTLY FINE!!

💛💛💛💛

I know this probably goes without saying but Alec and Magnus as individuals are so fascinating and complex. Each with such well-rounded, real struggles and stories. They are both so strong in different ways and vulnerable in others. It would take me far too long to name all of their unique qualities that make them the amazing, fleshed out characters that they are, mostly in part thanks to the insightful performances of Matt and Harry. But the depth that they have seriously blows me away. Alone, they are some of the most interesting, flawed, intriguing characters I’ve ever seen. And the fact that they are in love with each other and compliment each other and help fill in each other’s missing pieces in this sweet, chaotic, inexplicable RIGHT-ness is so incredible and we are so lucky to have these characters in our lives.

tbh getting the ball rolling with top surgery is very confusing and complicated but I think it’s finally doable for me!!!

anonymous asked:

My headcannon is that alex still mentions maggie a lot to eliza, so 1) eliza knows all this little things about her and one day eliza talks about it like it's nothing "maggie, here's your tea, just a bit of sugar, the way you like it right?" 2) eliza will call alex to check up on her and then "I'm glad you are ok, darling. Now put maggie on the phone, I want to see how she's doing too. Hi maggie, how's your wrist? Alex told me you hurt it last night... did you ice it?"

We all know I have feelings about Eliza, but I am so fucking into this.

everyone’s hating on clary and is calling her a bitch for the kiss/hurting simon etc etc but can we remember that when she got with simon she thought jace was her brother and her intimate relationship with jace was officially over. then she got hit with the news that jace actually isn’t her brother, that it was yet another manipulation by valentine aka her pos father. and even with that, she’s been with simon and supporting him, organizing the gig and believing in him and his music etc. it’s not like she showed up at the seelie court with the intention of fucking simon over. simon and jace were literally gonna die if she didn’t play the queen’s game …

and while jace may be her deepest desire (as determined by the seelie queen’s game) these are all feelings she’s obviously very recently struggling with (from wanting jace in s1, to discovering she had been kissing her brother, to simon /finally/ confessing his feelings and her reciprocating those feelings/making the choice to be with him, to being happy with simon, to THEN finding out they oh hey jace isn’t my brother, and her having to sort her feelings out all over again) 

like it’s gotta be confusing as fuck for her. i agree it’s a shit situation for simon and my heart breaks for him. but ppl are out here acting like clary purposefully got with simon just to shatter his heart lol ? ok

rnalas  asked:

GAM, I'm sorry if you've already been asked questions like this, but... how do you cope? With so much anger being thrown at you and women in general, every day? Whenever I'm aggressively confronted about feminism by male "friends" I can't help but shut down and just feel like curling up and hiding from everyone. I know I shouldn't and I'm trying really hard to change.

Remember that you don’t owe them shit, you don’t have to justify every single thing, it’s not your battle alone and those fuckers have Google.

When I push and fight it’s because I can, if I feel like I can’t then I don’t. It’s ok to draw your boundaries and refuse to engage, it doesn’t make you worse or a bad feminist.

But if you want to engage then my advice is: pick your battles. There are lots of people I could argue with that I KNOW won’t listen, it will lead nowhere and will probably end up in a mess. Feel free to ignore those situations and block the fuck out of anyone who is going to give you grief.

If you really want to engage then gather sources, you don’t have to spend 20 hours researching rape culture when chances are a bunch of feminists have already done that. Don’t be afraid to use other resources ever. I’ll link someone to a Marinashutup video, say “there are sources in the description box” and walk away to eat pizza.

If someone demands YOU personally break it all down for them then refuse that shit, they are just trying to break YOU down.

Know when to pull away. If an argument or debate has become too much pull the fucking plug, it’s never worth it to keep pushing yourself. The person you are debating with might see this as you “losing” but they are the kind of actual loser who thinks these issues are won and lost, so fuck them.

Seek help, tag a friend, get support.

Never look at the YouTube comments. It’s never going to be good.

Trim toxic people if you feel safe doing so. If people refuse to listen to you on your own experiences and position then these people suck, feel free to cut these people the fuck out.

And like, at the end of the day, sometimes it’s still fucking exhausting and tiring and you want to curl up and cry. So make sure you treat yourself, give yourself self care, put yourself first.

At the end of the day your first responsibility is to yourself and your own mental health. Believe me I’d have quit years ago if I wasn’t SO fucking petty and refuse to give my haters the satisfaction of me leaving.

Stay safe.

She stared at the stunted legs, the swollen brutish brow, the green eye and the black one, the raw stump of his nose and crooked pink scar, the coarse tangle of black and gold hair that passed for his beard. Even his manhood was ugly, thick and veined, with a bulbous purple head. This is not right, this is not fair, how have I sinned that the gods would do this to me, how?

When you say…

“Why haven’t you tried this yet?” Or “It’s been 3 years and you haven’t gotten better yet?”

It hurts.

It feels like you’re saying I’m not trying hard enough.

It feels dismissive.

Like my illness is a simple problem I haven’t bothered to solve.

Like I don’t live with it everyday.

Like I don’t already feel like a failure enough as it is.

Think before you speak, but especially to a chronically ill person. We have a lot of bed rest time to play your words over and over in our heads.
