i'm sort of concerned

2

I’m so excited for my yellow koi hmpk breeding pair in mid august!! The female on the left is named kiyomi and the male on the right is named yuzu!! Yuzu is almost impossible to take pictures of because he’s always darting around his 20g

acowar ships

I was thinking the other day about how we’ve all been so concerned with how the ships will turn out in acowar - who will end up with whom, who will get to see their ship doin’ it, who will have babies or get married or whatever.

But basically, at this point I’m over here just like…. please don’t die?

Because being in a ship/couple/marriage is great and whatever, but it’s pretty much the same thing as babies - people don’t need babies to be complete. And people don’t need to be in a couple or have a significant other to be complete, either.

But they sure do need to be alive!

remus/sirius. 10th anniversary of the sexual offences act.

Halfway through his fried sausages and scrambled eggs, Remus’ eyes stutter to a halt at the bottom of the sixteenth page of the Daily Prophet. A small headline above a small article has snagged his gaze: 10th Anniversary of the Same-Sex Offences Decree. Heat blooms in the tips of his ears and the back of his neck. For reasons he does not wish to examine closely he feels suddenly furtive and breathless, and, suppressing his urge to turn the page before anyone notices what he’s reading, he scans the article quickly:

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the Same-Sex Offences Decree, in which the Wizengamot ruled that homosexual acts were no longer punishable by wizarding law. This decree came several months after the Muggle Sexual Offences Act decriminalised private homosexual acts between men over the age of 21 in England and Wales. Although the primary argument in favor of the Same-Sex Offences Decree was that legal complications would inevitably arise from the conflict between Muggle and wizarding law, the Same-Sex Offences Decree goes further, decriminalising all private homosexual acts between wizards over 17 in all of Great Britain. Both celebrations and protests are expected to mark its anniversary.

Remus’ heart is in his throat. He tells himself to turn the page casually, to look up and take a bite first, as if nothing has happened.

“Earth to Moony,” says a voice behind him, and with a sudden start and a hot flush rising to his cheeks Remus jerks around to see Sirius grinning at him, on his feet, and behind him James and Peter already heading out of the Great Hall.

“Are you coming?” Sirius asks.

“What? Where?”

“The lake. Last warm day in September—avoiding the Potions essay—weren’t you listening?”

“Er…”

Sirius smiles fondly and runs his fingers up the back of Remus’ scalp, tightening them gently to pull at his hair. “What’s so interesting in the Prophet anyway?”

Belatedly, Remus shuts the paper—too obviously too fast. Sirius gives him a curious look but merely extracts his hand from Remus’ hair and tilts his head towards the doorway.

“Coming?”

Remus nods. “Yes. Yeah. I’ll be out in a minute, I just want to finish my eggs.”

Sirius shrugs amiably and leaves. Once he’s gone, Remus shoves the newspaper under the table and tears out the article. He slips in into his pocket.

He can still feel the imprint of Sirius’ fingers on his scalp.

Later that night, alone in the dorm, he pulls out the paper to read it again.

The words twist up something in his chest. Unhappily, he stares at the little block of text. Oh, god. He puts his face in his hands.

“Remus?”

Sirius steps through the doorway. He sees the bit of newsprint, slightly crumpled, on the bed. Remus can’t do anything but watch him, wide-eyed, as he picks it up, and scans it, and then sits down heavily next to Remus.

After a moment, Sirius says, “Do you ever think you might be…?” 

Remus swallows. “Yes,” he says quietly.

Sirius nods.

“So do I.”

Remus’ stomach takes a strange seasick dive.

“I know I’m supposed to feel grateful about this decree, or whatever it is,” Sirius says slowly, looking at the article, “but I sort of…I don’t know why, but I sort of hate it.” 

“It makes me feel awful,” Remus confesses. “I thought it was just me.”

Sirius looks at him. 

“Not just you,” he says.

He puts his hand on the back of Remus’ neck. Then he pulls Remus in and kisses him. 

His mouth is warm, and soft, and Remus clutches at his shoulders and for a moment he doesn’t feel awful at all.

Doesn't count as an ask but I'm sorry I found and love your blog - I'm gonna just- spam my hearts at you now

Messages like this always make my day. It’s always so nice to hear that upon tripping and landing face-first in the dumpster someone has discovered a blog they like.
I always feel so honored when someone says that to me.✨

Now I’m not sure whether to be flattered or worried about you

the face of a man who will spend days memorizing your schedule to creep into your quarters at night and watch you while you’re sleeping, draw on your face with permanent marker and take pics of you in your boxers (or whatever it is you sleep in), send it via PADD to both your closest friends and your enemies, then create a running holo-recreation of it to be the setting of the next ship-wide party… all because you took the last slice of authentic pepperoni pizza

I'm really glad that episode 15 had much better writing concerning Gardienne's feelings, but I'm sort of worried that it's going to take too long to forgive the boys (because realistically, it would take a very long time). In a way, I feel like putting the potion thing in Eldarya was just a bad idea. Also, I'm upset that we got to learn about Valkyon and Leiftan's past without any suspense, it was so anticlimactic.

The potion plot was added bc they had to find a way to stop Gardy from wanting to go back on Earth. Sure, there probably was a better way to do it, but in the end i think it gave her good character development. I really liked the final sentence of this episode : “if im no longer a person back on Earth, then I’ll become someone on Eldarya”. I’m so happy i want to cry ;w; i hope they’ll continue to develop Gardy’s character this way. I just don’t want her to suffer without reacting or doing anything anymore. I may not relate to her everytime, but if i can at least understand the way she feels then it’s okay for me.

I don’t mind if the romance part starts way later than on mcl (and if the forgiving part takes a long time too), eldarya may be an otome game but it’s also a fantasy game so i think action should be a big part of the game too.

As for Valkyon’s past… I do think it was a little anticlimatic too. But i think the way we learned it fits its character. Plus the only people that know about his past are the Valkyon girls for now.

And about Leiftan’s past… I feel almost more suspicious of him now. He may be telling truth… but what if he was lying 👀 what if he invented this sob story on the spot when Gardy asked him for reasons why he insisted she forgives the Guard 👀 so that he wouldn’t raise any suspicions 👀 👀

Luke the guy who charms the heck out of your grandma, joking and laughing and making her blush so when you’re leaving her house she packs him extra leftovers and hugs him a little longer than she hugs you and he throws an arm around you as you walk out and grins ‘think she’s got a new favourite’ and you’re just like 'stop flirting with my grandmother you creep.’

@pazithigallifreya replied to your post “solveig adaar: 48 >:D”

So how do the rest of the characters act to her change in attitude? I could see some approving and some being kinda terrified

It wasn’t much of a change in her behavior. She’s actually softened over the years spent with the Inquisition, as far as outward display of friendliness go. So it’s only noticeable to a handful of people who’ve seen the way she tries to reason with herself. To everyone else it’s just ”The Inquisitor’s killing people? Nothing new. At least she isn’t yelling at everyone all the time.” 

DO NOT WRITE TO A PROBLEM PAGE ABOUT THIS. PHONE THE POLICE. NOW. RIGHT NOW.

Imagine Steve coming out as bisexual to Bucky and being really nervous afterward (because of how common prejudice was in their time) until Bucky just pats him on the shoulder and tells him it's fine and that it doesn't matter because they're still friends no matter what

“Can’t say I blame you, anyway,” Bucky adds, with an easy shrug. “Guys are hot.”

“Wait.” Steve’s stomach is still lurching with the aftershocks of his nerve-wracking confession, and his mind is working overtime to keep up. “You mean you…so, you’re…”

“Come on, Steve.” Bucky holds his gaze steadily, eyes twinkling with amusement. “You really gotta ask me that?” He shrugs again, and casts Steve a mischievous grin. “I mean, I’ve seen Wilson. There’s only so much a guy can do.”

It is, Steve’s forced to admit, a very fair call.
