When you’re a kid, you think that you’ll always be… protected, and cared for. Then, one day, you realize that’s not true. If you open your eyes, you will see what we’re going through. ‘Cause when you’re alone as a kid, the monsters see you as weaker. You don’t even know they’re getting closer. Until it’s too late.
why does tumblr always talk about “scary” mental illnesses but then waters down the symptoms? my intrusive thoughts aren’t “uwu eat cardboard”? they’re things that can ruin friendships or horrible disgusting things that, if I posted them on here would probably get my called out. my impulses aren’t to go eat dirt, I get impulses to stab my eyes out. sure people can get things like eat cardboard but that’s not what a lot of ppl have to deal with?
Have I mentioned how much I enjoy the thought of Harry and Draco back at Hogwarts years after they leave? If not, let me take a few moments of your time to elucidate:
Inter-house rivalry at the head table
inter-house rivalry between classes
Knowing (memorizing) each other’s schedule and casually bringing it up in conversation–with or outside of each other
Seeming like a married couple to everyone else but not realizing it themselves
Intense quidditch debates in the staff room
students like to hang around outside because they’re always loud and always hilarious (and sometimes often result in creative new insults to add to their repertoire)
Grading together in one of their quarters and snarking over ridiculous student answers
Quibbling over teaching methods to the point of pedantry just to be annoying to the other
Trying the “I’ve never been more shocked by student behaviour in my life” approach on students who misbehave, none of whom believe it because they’ve heard stories of Harry and Draco’s time at Hogwarts (usually by the other in classes, ex. Draco climbing a tree because he wanted Harry’s attention)
Patrolling the hallways over Christmas hols
“Here. This is the statue Flitwick said he’s caught kids fooling around behind. Go check it out.”
“Why do I have to go?”
“What are you, scared?”
“… Fine, you absolute tosser. …Woah, Malfoy, come check this out.”
“What? What is it?”
“Just get back here and you’ll see.”
“I’m not going to fall for your tricks, Potter. I’m not going back there.”
They end up necking behind the statue like students
why are you unfollowing people? discourse or drama??
both i guess? there’s just a very loud part of the fandom that’s absolutely…….irritating and embarrassing.
i genuinely saw one post from a person that clearly didn’t watch the ep (and i bet barely watches the show in general) making a point how kara interrupting the white martians “ceremony” for what was described as a Staff of Evil as rude and Problematic and embarrassing. like yall realize…that was like the equivalent of steve rogers interrupting red skull and his nazi genocidal bullshittery right? that was an instant unfollow of the person who reblogged that.
I’m Tired. there are so many things happening that i just don’t care to see anymore. let’s make a list and air my grievances for all the haters to see
there are people either super upset about how sanvers is ending
i’ve actually seen people saying they’d prefer maggie to die or be captured by cadmus like…………………………………………………started from the bottom and now we’ve reached full circle
people have ABSOLUTELY EVERY RIGHT to want children and to not want children and ABSOLUTELY break up with their significant other because they both want incompatible things
kids…are a HUGE game changer. it changes absolutely everything in your life. you’re taking care of and raising another smaller human being who are 100% relying on you for every single thing. sometimes this is something you really want and are ready for, and sometimes this is a thing you’ve never pictured for yourself and never desired.
OR they absolutely don’t like sanvers in general because of floriana lima playing a latina.
which i absolutely understand in a sense but also race does not equal ethnicity does not equal nationality
this also leading to the insane amount of harassment and invasion of privacy that floriana received
this to the point that chyler herself has passively defended the casting choices and has even the recruited the help of caity lotz to defend the current sanvers plotline (which i still can’t even watch that, i’m getting so much secondhand embarrassment as a fan of the show)
which is…Not Okay At All
at this point, as much as i enjoy sanvers and as much as it’s gonna hurt, i Do Agree that marrying the first person you ever fall in love with in such a short period is Not a great storyline, and i’m looking forward to them breaking up so these people can LEAVE and move on to something else to nitpick at
and so alex can get her gay on with many many other ladies
so many people who jumped on the show in s2 for the Gay don’t even like kara or care for anything else, and at this point i absolutely hate the gay migration.
s2 fic: lol characterization who? never heard of it
a portion of the supercorp fandom are absolutely Insane and also don’t like kara.
i love lena luthor with my entire being. i also love kara danvers with my entire being. i also don’t like seeing one prioritized over the other when they’re canonically written as equals.
this extends to the…Odd dislike for melissa benoist, and i’m talking from Before the sdcc discourse (which is an..entirely different issue i’m sick of seeing. no one’s perfect, people make mistakes and say dumb things, especially in a group setting. let’s move on.)
they’re ….also oddly obsessed with hating pod boy and by extension chris wood, who seems like an actual good egg
i’ve always been on the fence about pod boy and disliked his presence at some points in s2 but Yes he did mean something to kara and Yes kara is allowed to mourn his loss and fear for his fate.
AND YES KARA IS ALLOWED TO HAVE SEVERE DEPRESSION AND PTSD
It’s crazy to me that after all Taylor has been through, all the anxiety she expressed feeling before and during writing Reputation because of forces and judgements out of her control, she still has it in her heart to trust us one hundred per cent? She called the Secret Sessions a sacred space, and now I totally understand. There was a bond in that room that didn’t even need to be spoken. She’s so right though, you can’t know if you can trust someone…..until you trust them. So unless we break this trust, it’s here to stay. We should feel bloody proud of what we’ve got going, here. It’s one of a kind, for sure.
*turns to Veronica and Archie* what? No ones gonna defend me? Are you kidding me? Hello? Someone please tell my boyfriend I was not a part of this. Oh no ones gonna say anything now? Cat got your tongue? You both seemed fine when you were singing that awful rendition of that horrible song. Okay, yeah this is cool. Oh great here comes Kevin and every adult in Riverdale, I'm sure this is great news. Forget this, I'm going home we've still got a full pie in the oven.
Hm. Might be the last chance we get to say that.
Think we're going to lose?
No. I think we're about to kick the reapers back into whatever black hole they crawled out of. Then, we're going to retire somewhere warm and tropical and live off the royalties from the vids. Maybe even find out what a Turian-Human baby looks like.
I'm game. Though I think adoption's a better idea--biology may not cooperate.
Hmm... I suppose there will be a lot of little Krogan around soon.
We just have to beat the reapers first.
James told me there's an old saying here on Earth. 'May you be in Heaven half an hour before the Devil knows you're dead.' Not sure if Turian heaven is the same as yours, but if this thing goes sideways and we both end up there, meet me at the bar. I'm buying.
We're a team, Garrus. There's no Shepard without Vakarian. So you better remember to duck.
Sorry, Turians don't know how. But I'll improvise. And Shepard... forgive the insubordination, but your boyfriend has an order for you...
Come back alive. It'd be an awfully empty galaxy without you.
I feel like there might be this sort if unspoken agreement among the Kirkwall crew to always point out nearby cats if Anders is in the party
Hawke does it because they care about their friend/lover and know how much the little moments of freedom and happiness mean to him. They also know the stories, about Pounce, and Mr. Wiggums before him, that make the mage’s borderline unhealthy affinity for cats suddenly completely understandable. And if he looks completely fucking adorable while petting the animals with a big smile on his face, well, that’s just the icing on the cake
Varric does it because even though he believes there is absolutely nothing dignified about a grown man cooing at small, furry creatures that usually seem mostly disinterested in the attention, he knows how much stress the mage is under and wants nothing more than for him to just relax for once. And hey, Blondie deserves some moments where he can just enjoy the simple things in life and be as completely undignified as he pleases
Merrill not only likes pointing them out, but often joins the healer in his apparent endeavour to pet every cat in Thedas. She loves them too, even if she can’t afford one of her own, and petting them makes her happy. Not as happy as it makes Anders, but it’s always nice when she can see him smile for once instead of always being so sad, and it gives them something pleasant to talk about for a change
Fenris does it not because he actually cares at all, no, of course not, why the hell would he care about the mage’s happiness? It does tend to shut him up, though, trading the rants about mage rights for a string of increasingly strange and nonsensical endearments that are still somehow far less irritating. Or, at least, that’s the reason he always gives when questioned, vehemently denying any possibility of kindness as a motivation
Aveline gives a huff as she points out the nearest cat, looking very much the same as a parent of a child who has just spotted a particularly interesting object to play with and is now begging for permission to go do just that. She may not be his biggest fan, but this bizarre group of friends Hawke has put together is the closest thing to family she has now, and Aveline takes care of her own, difficult and irritating mages included
Isabela does it because he enjoys it, so why not? Sure, he could have far more interesting pursuits than petting small balls of fluff, but hell, if it makes him happy, he deserves it. The poor guy never gets a chance to really lighten up anymore. Besides, she can’t deny that some of those cats are damn cute, and sometimes she joins him and Merrill, sharing stories about the mousers she used to have on her ship
Suho: “My glasses, I can’t see a thing without my glasses.”
Xiumin: Little fucker was plugging something in, Idk what it was, someone will probably figure it out, but that boy knew what he was doing. Or he didn’t, either way he knew he wanted to do it.
Sehun: Danger to his own men. Suho probably gave him that radio just so he would stay out of the way. (Still manages to terrorize Kyungsoo)
Kai: The badass. Only one who knows how to properly use the gun. Saved Suho’s blind ass.
Kyungsoo: Trying not to die. Got a massive egg after him (probably is the living embodiment of ‘eggsoo’ rising from the grave to destroy him) and has death hazard Sehun blind shooting him. Probably will needs therapy after this is over.
Chanyeol: Being cool as always, got a severe case of pinkeye.
Chen: Either continued what Xiumin did or stopped what Xiumin was doing, not sure. Either way he’s the real MVP here. We don’t need to tell him, he knew he was the mvp before he even made his first move.
Baekhyun: Left Exo for a cat, and decided to go skydiving. He’s on vacation.
