i'm so glad they feel the need to share this stuff with us

anonymous asked:

(1) Hi Viria, I hope you are well :) I am sorry to bother you with this, but it's really important for me, and I wanted to share it with you. It'll be long and kinda sad at first, but it gets better, trust me. I'm a 23 y/o latina art student. When I was a baby, my mom left my dad and remarried, and my little sister was born when I was 10. She is the light of my life and I love her to no end. Our mom, however, had had and undiagnosed and untreated mental illness for years, and one day

(2) during a severe crisis she hurt us really bad. I was 12. She was taken away to a psychiatric hospital and Child Services prohibited her from ever getting near us again. Since then, I have been taking care of my little sister and practically raised her while my stepdad worked 2-3 shifts to afford our education and payment for my mom’s hospital, living and meds. He was always working and I took full responsibility for my sis. As you can imagine, even though I loved her with my life, 

 (3) the situation was very stressful and exhausting for me. By the time I was 15, I looked every bit a teen mom. One particularly hard night when my little sis had been crying about mom, I couldn’t sleep. So I turned to something that calmed me: the Harry Potter books. I read them online, and somehow ended up searching for HP fanart. That was the night I stumbled upon your DA account. And boy, did I love it! I know back in 2011 your skills weren’t what they are now,

(4) but I was blown away, and what’s more, I felt inspired to draw. I had never tried to make any art before; it wasn’t “my thing”. But that night, you inspired me. As time went by I kept drawing and closely followed your improvements. Your art was so relaxing, calming, and inspiring, that it really helped me during hard times. You kinda dragged me into all the cool fandoms, series and animes, and I found life to be far more bearable with so many awesome things to love and think about.

(5) Your DA and Tumblr were some sort of safe sapce for me. It always cheered me up and gave me joy, peace, inspiration. When the time came, I choose to study Art at college. It turned out you did too, and you kept up all the good stuff in your blogs. Weirdly enough, I kept feeling a sense of pride whenever you improved and got better. I was so strange that you were so so far away and didn’t even know I existed but you helped me so much.

(6) I got accepted at my country’s top University to study Fine Arts; I moved cities and took my sister with me; she grew into a wonderful, sensible, peaceful child, and her presence motivated me to be the best version of myself, while your art motivated me to keep expanding my academic/artistic abilities. Life was hard but good at college, and I had incredible opportunities. I am graduating this spring with an advanced studies specialization, and was recently hired to work at

(7) of a movie. It’s like living a dream. And tonight, just a couple hours ago, the most incredible thing happened. After dinner, my little sis came to me, phone in hand, and said “Hey Ana, you won’t believe what I found. There’s this girl who makes amazing art of all the fandoms you’re in. Her drawings are gorgeous and she has so many!”. She showed me your tumblr. I wanted to laugh and cry. She was amazed when she saw your old drawings and your current ones; speechless.

(8) She fell in love, and you know what? Immediatly after, she went to draw. She’s been doing so the past hours. I know this was offensively long, but Viria, I needed to thank you for what you did. Your art has always been SO much more than just digital drawings of fictional characters. It’s been the source of peace, safety and joy that so many of us crave. You have wonderfully impacted and influenced many people across the world with everything you make.

(9) I am so glad you exist and do what you do; you gave me the hobby that grew into my passion, thaught me so much, inspired me beyond belief and most of all, you helped make life more bearable. And now, you have made the same for my sister. Viria, the world wouldn’t be the same without you. You are truly a magnificent light among us, and for your existence and passion I’ll be forever grateful. Thank you, and may you always live the beautiful, happy, awesome life you deserve. Thank you.


I’m not even kidding I was sitting here peacefully chewing sandwich and by the end of these messages the sandwich was too salty so was my cappuccino I swear you got me to tears and now i’m just like

I’m a shaking emotional leaf but thank you so much for writing me! It means so much and i’m so touched and i just wish you and your sister all the best of luck, though it seems like you don’t really need it. Thank you, and I hope life goes wonderfully for you and your family! 

Goblin in Review: The Kisses

As specially requested by @mynameishassie​ Here’s a review/reaction of all the kisses between Shin and Eun-Tak in Goblin. Just to play around cause I have nothing better to do.

Gif Credit | Rating: Innocence = 10/10, Dirty = 0/10, Satisfaction = 4/10

Ahh… good ol’ memories. The very first kiss between Shin and Eun-Tak in episode 6… a kiss so pure, innocent, and naive that all the snowflakes started floating upwards. What is gravity? Apparently it doesn’t work in the presence of these two sweethearts. So what makes this kiss important being their first kiss? Well this kiss set the stage for Shin to start thinking about life instead of dying. This kiss was initiated by Eun-Tak not because she necessarily loved him at the time, but because she didn’t know the consequences of Shin’s sword and what love really encompasses. This kiss compared to their last kiss is totally different in terms of romance and their mutual feelings. Shin was still only learning what it meant to be in love and Eun-Tak was still only desiring love. This is seen in their body language as Eun-Tak was struggling to stay on her tiptoes to hesitantly peck him and Shin’s shoulders were completely slumped forwards in utter dumbstruck. A perfect way to get our silly couple rolling. Despite this kiss being not hot and sexy, I appreciate this kiss as I love Shin’s reaction to Eun-Tak kissing him… to think this supposedly “weak” and “defenseless” girl can easily make this 939 yo Goblin confused and break down his defenses. But I desperately needed more than this kiss.

Now this was a proper “first kiss” of them being an official couple; what better way than for Shin to redeem himself by initiating the kiss while Eun-Tak asked for it in episode 10. The setting was perfect for our silly couple: fun date in a tent while drinking soju, a kick-ass entertaining performance, and a sweet and happy kiss shared between the two. This kiss was literally the definition of happiness as their kiss even has it’s own Sun shining a random light of unknown origin. It was quite hot of Shin to grab her face so gently as he kissed her and then Eun-Tak stole another kiss right afterwards. This made me love Eun-Tak more as she’s not afraid to ask for kisses… I understand why, lol. Just look at who her boyfriend is. I do like this kiss a lot, as said by Eun-Tak herself, “It’s perfect.” It was the perfect kiss to show how they mutually love each other after coming to an agreement that they will both fight to be together as compared to episode 4′s kiss. I wasn’t expecting anything hotter or sexier since our couple finally got together after jumping the hurdle of Eun-Tak finding out the truth behind Shin’s sword. But still, I needed more! lmao

Gif Credit | Rating: Cuteness = 10/10, Crime = 0/10, Satisfaction = 6/10

The cute photo booth kiss. That’s all that really needs to be said about this kiss, lol. It was a cute and off-guard peck that Eun-Tak gave to Shin which left him flustered and giggling like a little girl. >.< The funny thing is that Eun-Tak had pure intentions while it left Shin thinking about (most likely) not so pure thoughts … this girl can literally kill Shin on the spot whether she removes his sword or not, lmao. I just can’t get over how Shin caught himself using “tiny” and “small” in the same sentence! And then he proceeded to say he wants to come here every day, lmfao. This entire scene in episode 12 is adorable and especially how pure Eun-Tak’s intentions were to 1) get a picture with him and 2) give him an excuse to see his sister. Of course, it wasn’t enough to satisfy my fangirl desires and I was desperately hoping… praying… for a kiss that would exceed my expectations.

Gif Credit | Rating: Hotness = 10/10, Passion = 10/10, Satisfaction = 100/10 

Now we’re talking… this kiss swept me off my feet when Shin turned back to give her such a desperate, passionate, and engraving kiss before his imminent death. THIS WAS THE KISS WE WERE ALL WAITING FOR 13 EPISODES LATER!!! Just look at this beauty! Till this day… I love this kiss so damn much, it’s the kiss of the century. Just look at how Shin cupped her face as he kissed her with such a passion knowing that he might disappear forever. Look at Eun-Tak unable to say or do anything as she just closed her eyes in compliance… worried why he would suddenly kiss her like that. It was the perfect hot and passionate kiss to show how our couple loves each other and wants to be together. THEIR CHEMISTRY WAS OFF THE CHARTS! OMO! The only that that disappointed me about this kiss was how they DIDN’T FULLY CLOSE-UP FILM IT! Like why you gonna film a friggin hot kiss but not show us the whole thing close up??? Ugh… That was the good stuff there. >.> Despite my love for this kiss, I was praying that an even better kiss would happen once she was 29 yo. 

Gif Credit | Rating: Feels = 10/10, Longing = 10/10, Satisfaction = 10/10

This kiss was sooo good… a slightly melancholic kiss that was filled with feels as Shin immediately embraced a frantic Eun-Tak into a kiss as she finally remembered him. All I can say is that this kiss was so good from the angle it was filmed, from how it focused on Shin’s hand tightening on her, and to how both Eun-Tak and Shin’s eyes were filled with so much pain, sadness, and longing for each other. I started ballin like a baby cause they needed to be in each other’s arms and I was so happy when she finally remembered him! Ugh… To think this all happened in episode 15… T.T But this wasn’t the kiss I was waiting for… there was something else I needed to see from the episode 14 preview. 

Gif Credit | Rating: Lovey Dovey = 10/10, Rainbows & Unicorns = 10/10, Satisfaction = 8/10

Just another really lovey dovey peck between the two… oh wait… two pecks cause Shin wanted another one, lmao. I just love their height difference… *incoherent giggling* BUT I’M STILL WAITING FOR THE BEST KISS DAMNIT! DON’T FAIL ME GONG YOO!!! 

Drumroll…. 

Gifs Credit | Rating : Sexiness = _(꒪ཀ꒪」∠)_, Dirty thoughts = ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° ), Satisfaction = ∞ w/ too much salt

What more can I say about how much I am absolutely obsessed with this long over-due sexy make out between these two? Just look at how Shin launched at her… but at the same time Shin is such a gentleman as he stopped to make sure she was okay with it.. OF COURSE she would reply back enthusiastically! BUT I DIED WHEN SHE JUMPED AND WRAPPED HER LEGS AROUND HIM! OMG! AND FOR THE LOVE OF ALL MAKE OUTS, when Shin started planting kisses on her face and she was smiling from enjoying his touch… that was the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen!!! BUT DAMNIT! WHO THE FUCK CUTS IN THE MIDDLE OF GONG YOO AND KIM GO EUN’S KISSES??? WHY WOULD YOU DEPRIVE US OF THESE TWO WONDERFULLY AMAZING KISSERS??? WHY COULDN’T YOU SHOW US THE WHOLE DAMN THING??? (╯°益°)╯彡┻━┻

Seriously, the only issue I have with this kiss is that they abruptly cut the kiss at the GOOD part. They could have gradually transitioned out of the scene instead of just cutting in the middle of the kiss; they had plenty of time to add 30 more seconds – oh for goodness sakes, I would’ve been glad to see another hour. PLUS, WHY WOULD YOU NOT SHOW SOMETHING YOU TEASED US IN THE FUCKIN PREVIEW??? Two lovers who defied time, God, death, and were finally together would NOT just simply call it a night after sharing a passionate kiss on the couch AFTER staying together overnight in fuckin luxurious hotel (with probably a huge ass bed)… just saying. ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ノ︵ ┻━┻

And that’s all folks… I can’t really say that I’m completely satisfied since I love Shintak so much… It makes me sad that Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun will probably never costar together again since it’s rare for people to costar together a second time. WHAT A SHAME! YOU HAVE TWO AMAZING KISSERS COSTAR TOGETHER AND THAT’S IT? Like I would have been okay if they didn’t show any skin… just some more steamy moments between the two because their love is so fuckin tragic that they deserve some more lovey dovey couple scenes. Ugh… just because I’m a salty grandma, friggin 15 age rating ruined it! At least the kisses got better and better and we got a few Gong Yoo certified kisses in Goblin. T.T 

“The kiss itself is immortal. It travels from lip to lip, century to century, from age to age. Men and women garner these kisses, offer them to others and then die in turn.” ~ Guy de Maupassant, The Complete Short Stories of Guy de Maupassant, Part One

Hello!! Uh, I've been wanting to say this for a long while, but I wanted to let you know how amazing your art style is.. it's really unique and your colors and lines are lovely when paired together.

anonymous asked:

Hello~ I love this blog! (Even though it's still new, lol.) Um, could I request the RFA Members' and V & Saeran's reaction to MC being very worried about passing their upcoming finals? For example, not eating or sleeping properly to study, crying from stress, etc. That's where I'm at right now, and I could really use some cute anime babes to cheer me up T_T Thank you!~


SORRY THIS ASK WAS FROM MONTHS AGO BUT I’M BACK FROM THE DEAD SO HERE. I’M A POS FOR NOT DOING THIS SOONER JFC

Yoosung
  • He gets it
  • Like, seriously. He understands 100%
  • But when you start skipping meals, Yoosung is not okay with it
  • And when you cry? He doesn’t know how to deal with it
  • In order to motivate you to eat, Yoosung starts cooking you homemade meals while you study
  • Yoosung can’t cook tho
  • He’s running around the kitchen, opening windows and fanning towels at all the fire alarms
  • Even though he thinks the loud noises disrupt you, you are actually put in a better mood from the comedic failures of Yoosung
  • He’s happy to have been able to help, but has to order take out
  • Both of you sit at the coffee table, studying while eating some good take out until Yoosung puts you to bed

Zen

  • Zen hates seeing a lady cry
  • As soon as you start to break down, he declares it break time
  • He sits you on his lap and holds you close, until you calm down
  • Then he helps you study
  • But when you refuse to eat, because you’re too busy, Zen takes you out
  • on a romantic dinner date
  • He only lets you work until a certain time, because he doesn’t want you to miss out on your beauty sleep
  • He doesn’t want to miss out on his beauty sleep either, but doesn’t want to sleep without you

Jumin

  • It’s been a hella long time since this man has done any schoolwork
  • But work in general?
  • Boi he’s the CEO of one of the biggest Korean companies
  • He’s there to sit with you and help you organise all your thoughts, so that you can study accordingly and still remember everything
  • But when you start to skip meals? And sleep?
  • Not in his house… or penthouse. Fuck I forgot he’s rich af
  • Jumin calls in a chef to make delicious healthy foods you can’t resist, so you’ll eat
  • He also will literally pick up your stressed ass and cater you to bed when it’s time

Jaehee

  • Jaehee truly understands
  • Like literally her middle name is stress
  • When you cry, she quickly comes to your aid
  • You help her stress levels reduce like no other, so she’s glad to return the favour
  • She helps you study until you can handle it on your own
  • She doesn’t force you to go to bed, since she pulls all nighters all the time
  • Jaehee doesn’t want to be hypocritical
  • So she makes you both coffee, grabs cans of Red Bear, and you both work side by side all night
  • Until you guys fall asleep on each other

707

  • He understands stress
  • Like, great amounts of stress
  • Like literally “if you don’t finish this by the deadline ima have to take you out” kind of stress
  • Fucking Vanderwood
  • Seven is in great pain when he sees you reach unnecessary stress levels
  • He sits you on his lap and holds you until you stop crying, and shares some Honey Buddha Chips to keep you eating
  • He cracks a few jokes about schoolwork and how retarded people can be
  • Soon enough, you’re ready to keep studying
  • He lets you study until you feel as if it’s enough, and then lets you sleep on his lap
  • Basically spoils you to death

V

  • V usually stays calm in stressful situations, so he doesn’t really understand firsthand what you are going through
  • But, he is an understanding person, and gently calms you down when you feel like you’d lose it
  • Just being around him could make anyone calm
  • Like marijuana
  • Oh my god V is made of marijuana
  • He of course holds you close and makes you feel better until you’re done crying
  • He knows how to deal with this stuff because he took so much of Rika’s shit
  • And when you refuse to eat, he reasons with you and makes you a small dish
  • He doesn’t want to interfere with your work, so only he speaks when you need his support
  • Just kinda let’s you do your thang while making sure you’re healthy
  • Because being a bystander didn’t work out well with Rika

Saeran

  • Saeran is pretty familiar with stress
  • Since he’s an unstable lil muffin
  • But when you start crying, he kinda becomes gap moe
  • He doesn’t want his princess to cry
  • So, of course, he panics a little bit on the inside before hesitantly deciding to hug you
  • And he’s not very touchy, usually, since he has trust issues
  • So that pretty much makes you feel all better
  • He threatens to force you to eat, if you keep this up
  • Of course in the attempted least scary way as possible
  • He still needs practice on this whole interacting with people thing
  • He lets you work until you’re tired, and gets flustered af when you fall asleep on him
  • He carries you to bed and watches you until he falls asleep, in the least creepy way possible

i guess i definitely am one of those people, I mean, I've lived and felt what Jack is feeling before and well, most authors don't really write those experiences well or accurately so when reading the latest updates I felt myself go 'woah'

I definitely think you’re not alone, anon. I know there’s quite a few of us who read to kind of go through that angst. I know there’s readers who basically can’t wait for the angst to be over, but in a way, I’m not actually one of them. Like I live for those moments of comfort, but only if they come from hurt first. I need to go through both, somehow, to feel like I’ve really been on a journey with the character.

And I’m really glad this stuff resonates with you and gives you something that you don’t often find, it’s one of the reasons I write this stuff in the first place, because I don’t often find it myself. <3

Better Latte than Never

Ask and you shall receive! @cindersart wanted a Reyna/Calypso fic, I think this is not what you had in mine, but don’t worry, it’s not the last fic I will write about this pairing ;) Thank you to the wonderful @vampipers for being a wonderful beta. You’re the best.

Anyway, my beautiful Irish corn, my dear Drills. I hope you like it.


“Ask her out.”

Calypso almost dropped her coffee. She looked at Percy, who was smirking at her.

What!? No! I can’t.” Calypso felt her face get hot, and the knowing smirk on Percy’s face confirmed that that she was blushing like crazy.

“Why not?” Percy said, stealing a piece of Calypso’s pie. “What can you lose?”

“Oh, that’s rich coming from you, it took you four years to ask Annabeth out.” She smacked his hand when tried to grab more pie.

“That’s different, Annabeth was my best friend, and I didn’t want to lose her. You, on the other hand, have nothing to lose.”

Calypso sighed, stealing a glance at the beautiful dark haired girl, who was currently reading a book and drinking hot chocolate. Percy was right, she didn’t have anything to lose, except maybe her favorite coffee shop. Reyna (she might have heard a barista call her name) was a regular in the coffee shop, and Calypso, to Percy’s amusement, had developed a crush on her, and she had gotten it bad.

kriston2305-blog  asked:

Ok I can't figure much out because I'm kind of new on here but do you know any good wiccan blogs along with how to start up without disturbing the Christian-like family ...I've been trying to start this for about 2-3 years now.

Hello there! I’m glad you brought up this question; I’m sure we could all use a few witchy-based blogs in our lives. For starting out, try the About Paganism/Wicca page. It may not be Tumblr, but it’s paced with stuff to jumpstart your own personal research. In regards to Tumblr blogs you can follow, try these out:

  • Wicca for Beginners is just what it sounds like, and is a great collective of people (or one person??) who can answer a number of questions, if they haven’t answered them already
  • The Pagan Study Group is dedicated specifically to helping others study and answer questions they may have about Paganism/Wicca/Witchcraft.
  • Subtle Witchcraft is a very new blog which I watched start up today. They look like they’ll be sharing information about secretive witchery that is sure to be helpful. 
  • Wicca Teachings is a blog of infographics and informative blurbs that posts every once in a while, offering a skim of knowledge on a number of things. 
  • The Witch’s Spellbook is a running online BOS that offers a number of rituals and spells. A lot of them aren’t exactly discrete, but you can very much tailor them to your own needs. 
  • Arcane Mysteries is a tarot-based blog that offers a lot in the way of divination via tarot. I know it’s not witchy, but tarot leads in divination and divining is something that witches tend to enjoy doing. If you’re interested in divination, give Arcane and the tarot cards a shot, and then branch off from there. 
  • Ace of Pentacles is a cute personal blog that I just really enjoy—-they post a lot of witch-related stuff and I just like going through their things a lot. Selfless promo for Ace here. 

There are plenty of other, possibly far better blogs out there that you might want to check out. I would give the #witch, #wicca#pagan, and #BOS tags a look first, along with any tags you might find interesting and related. 

If you’ve yet to begin, start searching others’ tips on how to start your craft. There’s a post I made HERE that might offer a jumping point. 

So, now the question becomes, how does one practice witchcraft in an overly religious family, such as a family of Christians? Believe it or not, there are actually Christian witches out there. If you feel like you can and want to blend the two traditions together, you are free to do that. You can continue to worship the God of Christianity and follow that faith, as well as perform spells. 

However, it sounds like that’s not what you want to do. Although I’m one of the lucky ones who can practice my craft in the home of my family members, I still feel like I understand the secrecy aspect. I want to help offer some solutions. I’m in the process of writing a book that will hopefully be of use to the witches out there who need to keep things hidden, but for now all I can do is offer a few tips:

  • Keep the smoke and scents to a minimum: This will help minimize suspicious family from wondering where the smoke is coming from. Invest in birthday candles or flameless tealight candles in place of larger ones. Use smokeless smudging and incense, such a perfumes or your own water-based smudge spray
  • Hide your notes and trinkets: Put the pages of your BOS in a spiral notebook or binder; it doesn’t have to be a fancy leather-bound journal. Or you can write your notes and spells on loose-leaf paper and hide them in your school notes and supplies. Another way I’ve hidden things is by taping them on the undersides of shelves or hiding them between my mattress and the box that it sits on. I’ve even pinned things to the inside of my clothes to get them out of the house before. Hide folded papers on the inside of your shoe insoles, put them in book pages, hide them in empty makeup containers or mint tins, keep altar items in a shoe box…be creative! You can even make invisible ink, which is super sneaky. 
  • Keep vague items for your magick: If you have crystals, make them into jewelry. If you’ve decided and a deity that you want to worship, don’t get a statue that would give it away. Instead, get some items that your deity might like or that is symbolic of them in some way. Use household items as your witching tools (mugs for chalices and bowls, long items like pencils or sticks for a wand, etc). 
  • Use symbols and ciphers: You can go for the Futhark look, but why not try the Theban alphabet, Ogham, Pigpen Cipher, any other script, or even one of your own making. Learn symbols for elements, herbs, materials, and magick forms. 
  • Do magick under the rug: by this I mean write spells or sigils into your makeup; use tying your hair as a way to do knot/cord magick; use table salt or sugar to make a rune or sigil that can be easily blown away; wear a ribbon, clothes, or a hair tie that pertains to colours you want to embody or use for your magick; write spells in the dirt or dust; use herbal tea as a way to perform herbal magick or healing; use items from the kitchen or in the yard…the possibilities are endless. The point is to be hidden about the magick that you perform, to practice it in your everyday workings and motions. It’s not something that only occurs during ritual—-it’s an every day, every moment for of thing. 

I sincerely hope this helps, at least for now. Take a look at other blogs, talk to other witches, make friends that can help and support you. Check back here for updates on the secret witchcraft book I’m writing, as it’ll be free when I’m done. And have fun with it. Be safe. 

Wake Me Up Before You Froyo


The date idea of making each other’s froyo came from Rebecca and Ali (who doesn’t even go here) suggested a first date story. 
Here on Ao3




“You didn’t finish it?” Bellamy asked sitting down across from Clarke at the lime green plastic table.

“When we walked in I warned him, no blueberries-”

“You’re allergic,” Bellamy interrupted her. Clarke held up her hands.

“Right? You know that! We’re not even friends and you know that! I told him that 10 seconds before he went to make my froyo and he forgot!”  

“We’re not friends?” Bellamy asked, putting a hand on his chest. “You’re here every Thursday night, I thought we were friends by now.”

B) Wishes

Derek closes his eyes shut tight, and makes a wish before blowing out his candles.

“What did you wish for Dere Bear?” his mom asks as she cuts the cake.

“New ice skates,” Derek replies before digging into his slice. His moms share a smile - that’s exactly what that got his as a present, and they’re glad they can make his wishes come true.

*

“Billy, what are you doing?” William’s dad calls from the back doorway. William jumps up from where he was sitting under the tree in the garden.

“Nothing!” he yells back quickly.

“Well get busy! Your uncle needs help with the lobsters, go do that!” his dad replies, before going back inside.

William sighs, and throws away the dandelion he’d been wishing on. He should have known wishing that he wouldn’t have to help with the lobsters wouldn’t work.

*

“Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight” Nursey whispers. He closes his eyes, and makes a quick wish for his lecturer to like his poem tomorrow.

Nursey opens his eyes to see Dex looking at him disbelievingly.

"What?” he asks defensively.

“You don’t actually make wishes, do you? And, like, believe that’ll work?” Dex asks.

“Of course I do!” Nursey replies as he starts walking back to his dorm again. “Everyone does.”

“Not everyone.” Dex snaps from behind him.

“Of course not,” Nursey snaps back “I forgot, some people don’t believe in nice things”

“Don’t be stupid Nurse.” Dex says “Wishes don’t work. You don’t get things by making wishes on stars, or candles, or flowers, or eyelashes. That dumb little rhyme isn’t going to get you anything!”

“Woah, Dex, chill,” Nursey says, trying to placate his friend. “Its just a wish.”

Dex took a few deep breaths to try calm himself.

“Wishes don’t work Nurse.” Dex said bitterly after a pause “You can’t wish for what you want you know. You have to work for it.”

Nursey stares at him in shock for a moment. As he stares, Dex begins to look more and more uncomfortable. Nursey wants to say something, but he doesn’t know what to say.

“I-Dex? Do you really not make any wishes?” Nursey asks, once he realizes how long they’ve just been standing there. He just can’t process this, its so sad to think none of Dex’s wishes came ever true.

“No.” Dex answers, and if Nursey didn’t know better he’d think he sounded sulky. “Wishes never work, so why bother?” he says with a shrug, like he doesn’t care.

“Wishes can come true.”. Nursey tries.

“Oh yeah? How? Magic?” Dex sneers.

“Well…..yeah!” Nursey says. He doesn’t know what else to say. He’s always believed in magic and wishes. But obviously Dex hasn’t.

“Yeah right” Dex says, rolling his eyes at Nursey.

“Right. And I’ll prove it to you.” Nursey promises.

"Good luck with that” Dex says sarcastically, before turning and heading to his dorm.

Nursey nearly thanks him. He’s going to need all the good luck he can get to prove wishes come true.

*

“I sure WISH I had some pie.” Nursey says loudly as he, Chowder, and Dex enter the kitchen.

“That doesn’t count Nurse.” Dex says, “There’s always pie here.”

Nursey sighs. He’s been trying to prove Dex wrong all week, and it hasn’t been working.

“Okay, but I still wish I was eating some pie right now.” Nursey says. Bitty appears by his side with a slice, and he smiles gratefully.

*

"Why are you rubbing your eye?”

Nursey looked up from where he was tying his shoes to see Dex rubbing at his left eye.

“There’s something in it, and it f*cking hurts.” Dex grumbles, as he rubs at his eye and tries to pack up his gear at the same time.

“Lemme look.” Nursey offers, pulling Dex’s hand away from his face. Dex scowled at him, but there was no anger to it.

“Its an eyelash,” Nursey says, “Blink a few times, it should fall out.”

“Like I didn’t think of that.” Dex says, but blinks rapidly. It falls onto his cheek, and Nursey reaches out to brush it off quickly. He stops with his finger on Dex’s cheek. Dex stares at him, and Nursey feels like the rest of the team, the rest of the world, isn’t there.

“You know, some people make wishes on eyelashes.” Nursey whispers.

“Yeah?” Dex breathes. Nursey nods.

“You gonna make one?” Dex asks him quietly. Nursey closes his eyes to make a quick wish, but barely wishes it before he opens his eyes again to look at Dex.

When he opens them again, Dex is sitting a lot closer.

“Did you a wish?” Dex whispers. Nursey nods.

“Do you think it will come true?” Dex asks him. Nursey nods again.

Dex kisses him quickly, before pulling away with a smile on his face.

“But, it was your eyelash,” Nursey points out. Dex raises one eyebrow at him, confused.

“And?”

“You should make a wish.” Nursey explains “Its your eyelash to wish on”

“It’s okay.” Dex says, before kissing him again. “I don’t need to wish for anything. As long as I have you.” he says hesitantly, as though he’s not sure he has.

“I don’t think either of us need to make wishes anymore so”. Nursey says, before kissing Dex again.

I'm having an abortion tomorrow and it's almost scary that this came up on tumblr at such a time. Is there a place a person can get support for this?

Before an abortion, you will undergo extensive counseling to obtain your medical history, determine gestational age, and review your options, including continuing a pregnancy to birth and parent, or adopt, and the pregnancy termination options. These will be reviewed without judgement to help YOU decide the right course for you. Abortion clinics have trained staff who inform you, answer your questions, and support you during the procedure, if you choose. Some facilities have dedicated ‘doulas’ trained specifically to offer support during abortion procedures.

I’m glad we can be here to offer some information! A lot of people feel alone at the time of their abortion, and if information and support can help you, I’m so glad we’re able to offer it. There are definitely resources for support during and after your abortion. Check out Backline. They offer completely a nonjudgmental talkline where you can call and discuss any questions or feelings you’re having. You can also check out this article on what to expect when having an abortion. They’re a really great group that can help you talk through any confusing stuff you’re feeling, any emotions you need to get out, and really help you feel less alone. They also have great resources to point you towards, like a community of people of faith who support your decision to have an abortion. You can also share your story at We Testify. A lot of people report feeling better once they’ve told someone else about their abortion, even anonymously. Often, it’s not the abortion that makes us feel bad, but feeling like you don’t have anyone to talk to about it. You’ll find there’s a whole bunch of great people who’ve had abortions, who love you and trust your reasons, and want to welcome you to this community.

I enjoy your resources, but I have to ask if all the asks you get really are about lgbt/ethnic issues or do you cherry pick them for some political agenda? I'm bi myself but I'm tired of seeing progressiveness always being forced into fiction.

I have a lot of thoughts about this. 

First, I think the idea that I’m cherry picking asks if just a misunderstanding. I don’t answer everything I get and you can read why here. I’m not picking certain questions to fit any sort of political agenda or to keep up some facade. 

I do care about this stuff, especially the real world consequences since I know what it’s like first-hand to not see yourself on screen or in the books.

Second, being bi (and mentally ill and others things), I too sometimes get sick of seeing constant campaigns and promotions, especially of stuff that was never meant to reach a mainstream audience. Here is what you’ll find under the cut:

Reading 2 updates of the sound of your voice in the morning before I start my long day of work. You made my day. It is a big treat. Considering I'm a Gail & holly addict and you're one of my fav writers. Again you got me hooked with your fabulous story. We definitely need more of this :)

As you wish… 

A/N: I just realized as I was writing this chapter that I got the timeline off just a smidge. I’m not sure anyone even realized it, but I had Andy and Nick doing the dirty before Gail and Holly met, which isn’t quite in time with the canon. But this is an AU anyway, so just go with it, okay? Okay. :p

THE SOUND OF YOUR VOICE (PART III)

Gail’s phone buzzed on her desk, pulling her from her focused determination to avoid working. She welcomed the distraction—looking like she was hard at work while actually doing nothing was a challenge. Having babysat a group of old people in shock all morning had taken a toll on her.

She looked at her phone and noted that she had a message from Holly, whom she’d given her cell number to the previous night.

Someone found Bailey! =D

And below the text was a somewhat blurry and off center photo of Holly and the pup.

Gail broke into a wide grin as she typed out a reply. That’s great! I’m so glad he’s back safe and sound. :)

Ugh, Gail said to herself. She’d just used an emoticon. And it was smiling. That was so not her. Then another thought popped into her mind. She typed out another text. Please educate this ignorant soul… how are you texting?

sharpies, that’s it! i love working with acrylics, but i haven’t in years. i think i’ve used a total of 10 different sharpies collectively for all pieces i’ve done throughout inktober. i don’t really have any favorite art supplies as i’ve really only ever used really cheap stuff so it all gets frustrating to use after a while, but this witeout pen i got is the best

Hawaii Five-0 6x11 Kuleana

This episode. It got me so upset. Steve was a complete asshole and everything hurt. He treated this trip like a vacation, ditched Danny for some random girl, got drunk, and didn’t take the therapy seriously at all It made me so sad.

But then there’s this gifset (click it!), and it got me thinking… and thinking some more, and I rewatched the episode a couple of times, and I’ve come out of it with a whole new percpective of Steve and his actions.

To be clear, this is not a way to justify Steve’s behavior, okay? This is me making sense of things by looking at it from Steve’s perspective, and therefore gain more understanding (and peace of mind. My mind.) So not about who’s right, or wrong, but about perspectives. Okay. Glad we cleared that out.

Steve has said it before. All he wants is for Danny to be happy. Steve also has abandonment issues. So, what if he is not able to make Danny feel good anymore, why would Danny stick around then, right? What if he wouldn’t be enough for Danny, just like he wasn’t enough for Catherine? What would Steve be good for if he can’t make Danny enjoy himself (feel good about himself) and have fun in Steve’s company?

So first he tries to get Danny excited about the trip that they’re going on together. From the episode I take it this happened before the plane ride.(To Steve this is suppose to be a brocation, all right? To be enjoyed by the two of them. Together. Bros.)  That fails.

Then he’s really on about how awesome the place is and all the things they can do together. He got it all planned. Danny’s not excited, so another fail.

He even tries to get Danny to go out on a double date. (and I’m getting more and more convinced that the point wasn’t to get it on with Alyssa. No. It was about going on a double date with Danny.) Remember the double date with Catherine and Abby at the movie theatre? How much fun they had, together, on a double date? I think in Steve’s head this was something that Danny would enjoy for sure. Hanging out with some pretty girls (Danny likes girls), talking, laughing, having fun being social. Good times!

Okay, but to do that he needs to get them out of therapy (Danny hates it anyway. Danny has made it clear he never liked this therapy trip to begin with, and he is not enjoying the “therapy” they’re currently doing), and he needs to get to his phone so he can set up their dates. Well, that fails spectacularly.

Not only did Steve not make Danny happy, he made it even worse by messing up Danny’s ankle again! Aaaaand here comes the feelings of guilt and the fear of not being good enough. Run, Steve, run!! And so he does. It’s clear he’s not feeling good just looking at Danny, so of he goes to booze and girls to drown his fears and sads and pretend everything is fine.

Now, we have seen Steve drink before, but we have never seen him drunk. And he is sooo very drunk here. Very out of character from his normal “gotta be in control and on top of things, always” persona. When Steve tries to fix/solve things he gets controlling, when he thinks he’s failed he gives that up.

“The girls were really bummed you couldn’t make it. I didn’t now what to tell them.” He’s voice almost breaks at the end there, and he looks so sad? Why Steven? Why you so sad?

Then Danny brings up how Steve destroyed Danny’s weekend and immediately Steve’s deflecting shield come up. No, this is clearly Dannys fault. Danny and his negative attitude. Whitout that there wouldn’t be a problem. It’s all Danny’s fault (because if it’s not Steve’s fault there’s no reason for Danny to leave him, right?)

“I just brought us out here to have some fun, and reconnect a little bit, and get away from work for a minute, and you just – you just… you’ve been down on this thing from the start!”

Translation: “You didn’t even give me a chance! (You didn’t trust me to fix it so we could enjoy ourselves together by going out, doing stuff, having fun. Together. No therapy, no job, just us.”

Okay, so everything’s a mess, there are huge misunderstandings all over the place, and everything hurts. And Steve’s so very hung over the next day, he’s hardly even present.

But did you see the last scene? When Danny was eating the burger, shared it with Steve (Danny’s so, man, he keeps trying, always), and then started talking about how nice that soap was (that Steve had gotten so excited about in the beginning and Danny thought was stupid?), Steve latched on to that right away. Like, Danny’s enjoying himself? With something I suggested? And he gets all into it.Wow, your skin is super smooth. Amazing! This is great! Right, Danny? You’re feeling good, we’re enjoying yourselves. This is all I wanted.

Steve wants his Danny to be happy (and not leave him), but can’t seem to deal with the emotions (and fears!) attached to it…

I’m still sad, but Steve makes sense to me like this, and that sort of gives me some peace of mind.

P.S.
If you rewatch, notice in the beginning of the episode how Steve is all controlling (on a mission to fix things/ making sure they’ll have a good time!) and pointing out all the good stuff, and trying to make the best of things even when stuff starts going wrong, and more controlling/I have a plan-follow my lead, and then after he realizes Danny busted his ankle everything changes.

Also if you look at the gifset that originally inspired this post, and see that as the real reason why Steve wanted them to do this (it was about their relationship and reconnecting), notice how that completely changes the reading of the text (episode) and the assumptions one makes based on it.

alderaani-rebel  asked:

Hey, I wanted to ask you a question. Have you discovered a way to relate to teens without sounding cheesy? Our school has all these anti-drug anti-bullying campaigns, and it's always something like misused internet memes on the walls- Sarcastic Willy Wonka with a message that reads "Don't smoke!" Sometimes they just put hashtags in front of everything, or make text message posters, et cetera. Most of the kids ignore it and make jokes about it. I was wondering if you could give me some tips. Thx.

OKAY, so this turned out way longer than I expected it to! But I’m so glad you asked, because apparently this is something I feel very strongly about and did not realize until I started to talk about it. So here goes.

What I have found from working with teens is that they do not appreciate being patronized (shocker) and therefore do not respond to it at all. Putting a hashtag in front of something does not make it trendy. Those damn text message posters – while a pretty lame idea to being with – are often made even worse because WHY DOESN’T ANYONE WHO MAKES THOSE KNOW WHICH SIDE TO PUT THE INCOMING ‘TEXT’ ON AND WHICH SIDE TO PUT THE OUTGOING ONE ON? I have never owned an iPhone and even I know which way to do it so the conversation isn’t backwards and nonsensical.

So anyway: yeah, teenagers are going to make fun of that crap…because it’s total crap. And it’s actually little offensive that some adults think they can “get through to those damn kids” by co-opting their culture (I call this kind of stuff “youth culture”…I don’t know if that’s mislabeling it, but I don’t know of a better term to use) and misusing their colloquialisms. I’d be pretty annoyed, too. Especially when the teachers who come up with these brilliant ideas basically fall into one of three categories. They are pretty much always either:

a) completely missing the mark on how absolutely ANY of this stuff works and therefore are only embarrassing themselves and subsequently the students they are trying to reach,

b) unironically trying to “get in with the youth crowd” by using words they think the kids are using (pssst – that never works and they think you’re weird), or

c) purposefully trying to ruin something that teenagers enjoy simply because they do not understand it, and are super bitter humans who apparently can’t let anybody have fun without pitching a fit when they’re not invited to the party.

Think about it – how many times have you heard an adult say something along the lines of “Well I’m just going to use every slang word they use until it isn’t cool anymore, because I, an adulty adult, am using it [probably out of context and with an air of superiority and mocking in my voice every time I do so].”

So on to your actual question – how can we relate to teenagers without patronizing them? I think it’s simple – drop the nonsense. I 100% promise that you can have a conversation with a teenager about an important issue without having to use the word “hashtag” even once. You can talk to them – about real, important things – in a mature, real way. 

AND, believe it or not, doing so will get you so much farther than if you hang up a poster where it looks like Jesus is texting me to not do drugs but, lo and behold, the creator of the poster did it backwards so now it just looks like I’M the one trying to talk Jesus out of getting high this weekend. As a teacher, if I wanted to talk to my students about drugs…I just would. It doesn’t have to be prefaced with me trying to rap about anything. It doesn’t have to involve me trying – and inevitably failing – to sound cool. It’s more genuine that way.

So what do I do to ‘connect with the youths’? I don’t try to be one of them. I am not a teenager anymore (thank god). I am an adult who loves a lot of teenagers and wants what’s best for them. 

And yes, sometimes I would have long conversations with my teenage students about One Direction…because guess what? I legitimately like One Direction, so our conversations were two-sided and our shared interests were genuine. You know what I DON’T like? Those popular teenage boys who make the Vines and then have people pay money to meet them in a hotel lobby (??) or whatever it is. So you know what I DIDN’T reference in any of my conversations with my students? Those Vine boys. Because I just don’t care about them, and so any attempt of mine to talk about them would put me into one of the three categories listed above.

I’m not saying don’t try to connect with your students. Of course do that. I know about a lot of things that I personally don’t care about. I know about them because my students care about them, and they talk about them, and I listen to them. But there is a difference between listening to someone talk about something that belongs to them – their slang, their friends, their interests – and trying to take that thing and use it to manipulate them.

Your students will know if you’re being authentic. I’ve said it before in a million other contexts, and I’m saying it again now. Be yourself. (Now, definitely do keep up with current slang – I do so I know what the kids are talking about and can intervene if I know what they’re saying is offensive.) But don’t feel like you need to use that slang to connect with your students. 

You’re not friends with them. You’re not going to be. Leave the youth culture with the kids and just be yourself. Let them know you care. Find ways to connect with them that don’t involve mocking the way they speak. Even a nine-year-old can see through your bullshit if you try to act like something you aren’t. No need to put on a show to love your students.
