listen, Anakin “I will do anything that you ask” Skywalker would literally never try to guilt Padme into going away with him for the weekend after she says no to do work instead. He might whine a bit, but it would be like a lighthearted whine, not meant to be serious, and he definitely wouldn’t get mad. He’d back off and respect her wishes
a nonbinary girl and lesbian that uses he/him? i'm a trans guy, and i will do everything i can to pass pre-t and pre-op so people will use he/him pronouns for me, and it still doesnt work. Yet, somehow, you want to be special and say 'nnhnnn, im a girl but yknow, i dont want to be like every girl on the planet and use she/her. im going to use pronouns meant for boys/masculine aligned people even though im neither'?? this?? is why no one takes?? lgbt+ (mostly t) people seriously?? w hat????

So this post got me thinking. I don’t think it’s totally off the mark, but I’m not sure if Shiro possibly not being their Shiro is the revelation Lance is actually having. That said, I do still think there is something important going on there so I’m gonna roll this out.
I think we need to put our Kuron!theories on the back-burner for a minute, assume no one on the team realizes this yet, and try to evaluate this from their perspective. Even though I definitely think something is off with Shiro, I think we also need to remember this is a children’s cartoon – and if it took these characters half an episode to realize something wasn’t quite right with Coran in Ep4 despite his suddenly speaking with a totally different accent – I think it is pretty presumptuous to assume the characters in-series are picking up on these very subtle differences we as viewers are noticing with Shiro. Especially since not one of them has voiced any concern over Shiro’s behavior.
What I want to focus on instead is that with Keith out of the equation the team dynamic has gone all screwy, and in a way very different from when Shiro was missing.
Here is the exact dialog exchange in S4:E6, before the gravity field traps them:
Shiro: “Stay alert.”
Lance: “I say we get out of here. Pidge, plot a course for our escape.”
Shiro: “Hold on. We should find out what these things are first.”
What I want to note here is that Lance isn’t waiting for the go-ahead from Shiro. He’s making a decision on his own and acting on it. Lance is giving Pidge an order. An order that Shiro completely disregards and overrides without acknowledgement.
maybe the reason people didn’t like the second part of dn is because the intimacy of the first part is lost?
in the first part u have a small group of characters, confined to a specific space as they try to battle it out. you have light, misa, ryuk, L, and the taskforce. really, at the beginning aizawa and mogi aren’t massive players in the plot - mogi moreso than aizawa. so really u have 6 characters ur following and very few environments where they interact.
personally, i like the intimacy of these types of stories. what’s happening in the grander scheme is actually very massive, but the root of the plot is taking place in such a small space. it’s easier to follow i suppose and is much more tense.
in the second part, when our wonderful successors come into the story, suddenly, the story is larger. there are no longer a handful of characters but a whole plethora of people we suddenly have to know. we saw the taskforce come into creation but not the spk, or how mello got into the mafia. we’re already pushed out here.
the intimacy is now no longer between our main character and everyone else, but between mello and near. it’s now their intimate game. if, say, near had been the main character of this story we’d see the same intimacy the beginning of dn had
BTS Reaction ▾ They tell you they’ve still never had sex
Warnings: Swearing, Mentions of sex (forgive me for I have sinned) but not at all detailed.
Jin really liked you. Like more than he should at this point in the relationship. You were exactly what he pictured when he thought of who he wanted to be with his entire life. And thinking that was pretty risky since you guys were still a very new relationship. It gets worse for him because you still didn’t know that he was a virgin. How was he supposed to bring it up? He was ready to get rid if it but he wanted to tell you beforehand.
He finally decided it was best to say it upfront. Be as transparent as possible and at least try to be a little mature about it. So one day, he sat you down for a nice breakfast and once you guys were done, he said he needed to tell you something.
“Uhm, of course Jin. You know you can tell me anything.” You encouraged him, but on the inside, your stomach was in a frenzy of all the possible negative outcomes of this.
“I don’t know how to say this…” He fidgeted with his hands with his eyes down. Oh well. You guessed this was you last breakfast with. Man, what the hell did you do? Your hands were balled into fists under the table.
“Please tell me.” You said quietly. Jin looked up at you and realized you had a pained expression, he was about to ask you if you were okay when it clicked.
“Wait babe, no. I’m not going to say what you think I am. I just- Gosh why is this so hard?” He groaned as he got up off his seat and walked towadrs you to kneel right in front of you. He took your hands in his and kissed them. “I like you okay? I just- I wanted to tell you something about me.” He said, reassuring you. You stayed silent, waiting for him to continue. “I’ve never really slept with someone.”
There, he’d done it. He kept an eye on your face to see if there was any indication of disgust. But you looked more than relieved.
“Jin! You scared me! I thought- Wow I thought you were going to leave me.”
“So you’re okay with this?”
“Okay with this? Of course. I’m a little surprised because you’re so loved around the world and not to mention, not a bad looking guy.”
He fake gasped as he felt lightness fill the room again. “Not a bad looking guy? Is that how you’re going to describe Mr. Worldwide Handsome? Wow, and to think I shared my darkest secret with you.” He feigned hurt as he put one hand on his chest, the other still holding on to you. You chuckled a little as you just stared at him.
You’re glad he shared this with you. At least you know that he trusted you and you made him comfortable enough. “I guess we’ll wait okay? ‘Til you’re comfortable.” You said with a nod and a cute little smile.
“Wait no. I want this label to get off me. I’ve waited long enough. Please, let’s just-” He let his sentence dwindle and you smirked inwardly.
“No, I think we should wait. Like, what if I hurt you? Can you handle being a little rough on your back old man?” You knew this wasn’t the best time to be messing around with him but his reactions really were the best.
“What? (Y/N)! You’re being unfair!” He practically whined. You let out a laugh and leaned over to give him a kiss.
“Alright. We can do whatever you want.”
Making assumptions in your relationship with Yoongi wasn’t the best thing, so yeah you were surprised when he said he’d never slept with someone. You’d been dating a little over five months and in all that time, the both of hadn’t really gone that far. You always thought it was him respecting your personal space because you weren’t the most experienced person. I mean, you had done things but they were a long time ago and they weren’t the best experiences. You told him that much on the first night when things had gotten hot n’ heavy and you’d pulled back. So, thinking he was only waiting for you to be comfortable enough wasn’t that much of a brash speculation. Or so you thought.
“You’ve never had sex?” You repeated his confession back to him. Seeing that he was feeling slightly antagonized you quickly tried to recover. “Babe, I’m not saying that because it’s a bad thing. It’s just- You look like you know what you’re doing. Every time.”
He only shrugged “I only act like I know everything.”
You nodded and placed your hands on his cheeks. You weren’t sure what to do in this situation but you tried to make the best of it. “Okay, then we’ll wait as long as you want me to. I’m ready and whenever you are, just let me know alright? And even if you wanna stay celibate for the rest of our lives, I don’t give a shit because you’re more than that.” You ended with a light kiss on his nose.
Even though this is something he was secretly aware that you could leave him for, he couldn’t help but smile at the fact that you could be with him for the rest of your lives. He loved the sound of that. With that he realized, maybe he loved you.
To be quite honest, when Hoseok had almost told you that he wasn’t as experienced as you’d thought, you told him it was a little off putting when guys didn’t know how to pleasure a woman. You had meant it in a way that you weren’t fond of guys being selfish at times during sex. You hadn’t meant to go ahead and crush is self esteem. He listened to your rant on how it was unfair and childish for guys to be like that and bit by bit, unknowingly, your words chipped away at his confidence he had mustered to tell you. After that, Hobi didn’t bring it up ever again. He was too uncertain of your reaction now.
You began to sense his unease and decided to put whatever’s bothering him to rest. “Hobi, you need to tell me what’s going on.” You said in the middle of the both of you just lounging beside each other in bed, doing your own things.
He decided to play dumb and looked at you in confusion. “What?”
“Don’t do that. You should tell me when things are bothering you,” You said calmly as you scooted over to him and placed a hand on his thigh. “I promise there’ll be no judgement from me.”
He sighed “You think that.” He mumbled, barely above a whisper but you heard him fine.
“Why would you think that?” You asked, worry evident in your features. You can’t believe that you did something to make him feel this uncomfortable. You wanted to fix this because you liked him and never wanted him to feel this way.
“Remember a couple days ago, when I asked you if you’d ever slept with someone who didn’t now how to pleasure you?” His face flushed as he recalled that. So did yours. You were about to ask him to continue when you gasped, finally realizing what the hell had just happened.
“Hobi you’ve never slept with someone?” He shook his head, “And I- I’m sorry baby but that’s not what I meant. I’ve been with selfish guys before and that’s all. I have no problems with someone who’s inexperienced.” Hobi looked a little ashamed. Maybe his mind blew things a little out of proportion. “Babe look at me.” You place your free hand on his chin and turn it towards you. “You’re amazing. You’re the best person I could ever ask to be with and I wouldn’t want it any other way. What I think of you will never change just because you’ve never had sex. We’ve all the time we need so we can wait as long as you need.” You finished finally.
Hoseok’s stomach was doing somersaults now. He can’t believe you made him feel like this with just the touch of your hand and your sweet words. He smiled brightly for the first time in a while and leapt on you with his arms clasped around you. You laughed delightfully as you received a chorus of ‘I love you’s and kisses spattered across your neck.
Namjoon’s left a hot as he left bites and kisses along the side of your neck. His hands held a bruising vice on your hips as you grinded on him. You legs were on either side of him as you let out quiet moans. Thing were getting serious between the two of you and not just right now in the moment. He’d drop constant hints that he was into you and you were constantly teasing him to the point where it led to here. You on his lap with his lips hungrily exploring you. You pulled back only to pull your shirt off of you but as soon as it came off, his lust blazed expression transformed into a panicked one.
You immediately sobered up and asked him what was wrong. “Woah what’s wrong? Am I hurting you somewhere?” You widened you knees a little thinking that you were causing him sort of pain. That only resulted in you brushing against his groin and he flinched.
“No- Ah. No, I’m okay. I- Um- I’ve nevergonethisfarbefore.” He let out so quick that you almost missed it. Not gonna lie, you were taken aback. He always came off as the most sexually forward person to you. You hadn’t expected this. Especially from someone as sought after and famous as him.
You tilted your head in contemplation. “So… You don’t want to do this?” You asked. His eyes widened as he shook his head and slid his hands up to your face.
“No, I want this. I only freaked out because I wanted you to know before we did anything. I still wanna continue this.” After he gave you his permission, you placed a hard kiss on his lips and then leaned into his ear.
“Well, I guess we should stop the wait.”
You had your suspicions. He was way too cute and even though he was very affectionate with you, you did have an inkling of an assumption that maybe he wasn’t the most experienced. Your suspicions would always strengthen whenever you tried to make a move on him. You’ve been dating him for a bit and you guys fill in the spaces with so many other things that you don’t find the time to do more than make out and cuddle. You decided to put your raging imagination to rest by confronting him once and for all.
“Chim, you know you can tell me anything right?” You asked as he helped you wash the dishes.
He gave you a side glance with a nervous little chuckle. “Yes? What about it?” You almost forgot what you were supposed to do because the smile he gave you made you mind go blank for a second.
“I want you to know that no matter what, I’ll always be accepting of you and that I’ll never judge.” He nodded slowly in understanding.
“I know, that’s why I’m with you.” He gave you a toothy smile.
“So tell me this. And I mean this in the nicest way possible. Are you a virgin?” It was silent for the shortest time until it was broken by Jimin going into a choking fit.
You dropped what you were doing, wiping your hands on your apron and patted his back to help him. Coughs racked his body and his face was as red as you’d ever seen it. Part of you thought it was probably because of him choking but you also wondered if he was embarrassed, After his chokes died down and he couldn’t finally breathe proper again. You didn’t want to push him to answer so you quickly tried to make amends.
“Actually, don’t say anything if it’s an awkward question for you. Let’s just finish the dishes and go to sle-”
“I am.” He said, quietly as he avoided holding your gaze for more than a moment. You reeled from his answer but you had expected it so you nodded, still rubbing circles on his back from his little choke fit.
“Okay. That’s okay. Did you feel uneasy telling me?” You asked. He shook his head and looked at you properly this time with a slightly shy smile.
“I was just a little embarrassed. I didn’t want you to think less of me because of this.” His voice still maintained a low volume and he looked so cute that you couldn’t help but coo over him.
“Jimin… I would never think that. I like you because you’re you. Not because I have this superficial idea of you. Just promise me we won’t have secrets between us like this. We’ll both be as open and honest as possible alright?” You didn’t let him answer you back as you left a kiss on his lips that he swore made him dizzy.
He never thought it necessary to tell you. Assumed that you’d already known because he told you you were his first serious girlfriend. It wasn’t until things were getting hot in the bedroom when he pulled back to ask for reassurance that it struck you that he was a virgin.
“I don’t want you to be disappointed so tell me if it doesn’t feel good okay? And it’d be nice if you guided me through this.” He asked, a little out of breath as he looked down on you.
“Guide? What do y-” Your eyes widened, finally picking up on what he had tried to tell you indirectly all this time. “Wait, this is your first time?”
Tae looked at you confused. Did you not know? Even after all the hints? “You’re serious?” He asked.
“Oh no. Why am I so slow? Tae this should be a special occassion and forgive me for being rude but how the hell did you stay this way for so long?” You were thinking aver your words and it was like a waterfall of questions were gushing from your mouth.
“I told you…” He sat up, still with his knees on either side of you. “I never had a serious girlfriend.”
“But… I thought… Girls practically throw themselves at you.” He laughed a little and nodded.
“That may be but I don’t want that. I want someone to like me for being Kim Taehyung. Not V from BTS. My fans are lovely but I haven’t ever met someone like you. And you’re the one I wanna do this with. I don’t even care if there aren’t candles or mood music, because it’s already special with you.”
Your stomach twisted and a warmth spread through your body when he said that. “Tae… Gosh you’re such a sweetheart and I can’t believe that you’re mine.” and with that, you pulled him back onto you and let’s just say he didn’t need too much guidance that night. The boy’s magical with his fingers.
A couple nights ago, Jungkook was literally making out with but since then, he hasn’t even tried to make eye contact when you were in the same room. Had you been to aggressive for him. I mean, you were forward that night but not enough for him to avoid you completely. Unless you’d read him wrong, it was obvious that he liked you right? The other boys seemed to think so when you voiced your concerns. They all assured you that he was just shy and maybe needed some time to recover. You were beginning to think that there was something wrong with you. That for some reason maybe he didn’t like you that way.
Maybe it was just a heat of the moment thing and he honestly wants nothing to do with you. So, you stopped hanging around the dorm. You were close friends all the boys since Namjoon had introduced you to them and you’d made it a habit to visit them a lot. But you couldn’t bear being there if you felt unwelcome by the one person you liked the most out of all of them. It’s been a week since you’d stopped going over to them. Telling them that you were just busy with studying for midterms and purposefully ignoring some of their calls. Jungkook felt it was his fault. He thought that maybe distancing himself for you wasn’t good. He decided to do something about it and actually bring you back.
Next thing you know, Jungkook is knocking on your door. He didn’t know what he was going to say. Maybe he should come clean that he’s never done things lie this at all. You were even his first kiss. When you finally opened the door, your eyes widened almost the size of saucers. “Jungkook?” You asked. Not having expected him to ever see you aye-to-eye again. “Wh-”
No hesitation, Jungkook took one step toward you and gathered you in his arms as he kissed you deep. This kiss was different than the last. Not better or worse. But different. Your toes curled as his lips slid against yours with fiery fervor. He finally pulled back. “I’m sorry (Y/N). I didn’t mean to hurt you. I was only embarrassed because I don’t know what to do with my feelings. It’s the first time I’ve ever done something like this and when you um- touched me there, I kinda freaked because it would’ve been my first time.” You were quiet, listening to his rant while still in his arms. The both of you breathless from the kiss.
You tilted your head and looked at his lips, they looked so inviting and you really wanted to kiss them but his eyes were so vulnerable that you wanted to put his mind to ease first. “Kookie… You didn’t think I knew? You’re so shy and so cute when I’m even a little bit forward. I gathered that a long time ago. Plus, so am I. So it’s alright. We can explore these things together. Wouldn’t that make it more special?” You explained and as you did, you felt him slump his shoulders in relief.
He groaned a little and let out a laugh. “(Y/N) you have no idea the effect you have on me.” He said as he went back in for another ravenous kiss.
A/N: Guys this is my first request and oml I’m dying a little inside because even though I wrote a bunch before (for other fandom) I’ve never gotten a request. Unless you count asking for another part to a story. Thanks for the request because my insides are a garbled mess and I needed that 😊😊 P.s. Also, I don’t really like the word ‘Virginity’ mostly because of the negative connotations of it and the hypersexualization of men and women who are virgins. I just wanted to insert this here because I cringed every time I wrote the damn word 😂 Lmao I’m sensitive af
While studying to become a doctor, did you ever feel like you weren't smart enough for this profession? And if you did, how did you overcome that feeling? Cuz undergrad has this amazing way of reminding me I'm not as smart as I want to be and it feels like a dead end sometimes...
Thank you for your question!
I don’t feel smart ALL OF THE TIME!
In medicine, you are surrounded by some of the most intelligent minds our society has to offer. But being smart is not always the mark of a great doctor. A great doctor is passionate, hardworking and thirsts for knowledge. You have to be willing to put in the work, more work than anyone else, but it doesn’t matter because this is what you were meant to do, or at least that is what I told myself.
I was never the top of my class or did I ever get the highest score on any of my medical school exams. I did well in undergrad and medical school, I passed my exams and made it to where I am today. If you are passing your classes and scoring well on your exams then I think you are well on your way to becoming a doctor one day. Hope this helps.
