. OKAY, so I have a theory. Having rewatched all of the Sanvers scenes from the last episode, I can only conclude one thing which is that Maggie was not aware of how Alex actually felt about her. Beginning of the episode she walks up to her as if nothings wrong, she doesn’t quite seem to understand why Kara is clearly ready to murder her, and she opens up very fresh wounds with Alex. Maggie isn’t dumb. She knows, I presume what it’s like to be rejected, and she’s not callous either so if she’d realized how much she hurt Alex I think she would have let it be a little longer. 

Later when they’re talking in the parking garage or whatever, she’s fine until Alex says “Because I was sure of one thing, and that was my feelings for you.” And like right after she says that, Maggie’s whole face changes. It’s then that she realizes that Alex didn’t just have a baby gay crush. It wasn’t just her liking the first gay girl she could find. She genuinely liked her a lot. And when Alex walks away she watches her go and she looks kind of dumbstruck like she’s not quite sure what just happened. 

And finally, at the apartment scene she finally seems to get how much she actually hurt Alex because she’s a lot more careful about her words and about what she’s trying to convey. Also after she says that she hopes one day they can be ‘friends’ she literally looks like she swallowed a lemon. She doesn’t want to be friends, and she knows that Alex doesn’t either but she also knows that it’s too soon. 

Maggie didn’t know. There’s been a few people who have mentioned that Maggie probably doesn’t think she deserves love or is lovable after the way her last gf broke up with her so that probably translates to Alex. She doesn’t understand at first that a beautiful, smart, wonderful woman like Alex might actually love her. 


It’s nearly been one year since Undertale was released, and even though I didn’t know about it until christmas, I still feel like the game helped me to get through a very hard time in my life.
It’s a rough sketch, but I just felt like making something to show my appreciation.

Even though the hard times aren’t over yet, being in this fandom has helped me get through, and Im so so grateful.

I suddenly felt the urge to share this idea with y'all.


•Kenjiro is always hearing weird russian songs and he’s like “my soulmate is odd af. But i guess the song is kinda catchy ??”

•Yurio sometimes hates his soulmate for singing songs tHAT ARE REALLY QUESTIONABLE (one time his soulmate sang that song that goes like “i’m blue dabadee dabada dabadeedabadie”)

•yurio gets rick roll’d more than once.

•when they meet it goes down like this “wHY ARE YOU ALWAYS SINGING NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP” and kenjiro is all like “ITS A NICE SONG!”

•basically fluffy funny soulmate au.


Off Guard

Grayson Dolan X Reader

A/N – Just wanted to say that this won’t become the norm, I may occasionally write about people other than the sidemen if I am feeling it which I hope is okay! Anyways I hope you still enjoy this and if anyone wants me to change this and post it a second time as a sidemen imagine, just send in a request about it.

“I just can’t talk to you right now okay,” Grayson said angrily to me. I somehow felt every emotion towards him. I was angry, hurt, irritated and just plain tired. It had been a long day for both of us which was probably one of the reasons we were arguing in the first place.

“Gray, I didn’t mean it like that” I tried to defend myself but he wasn’t having any of it. The day before then, a fan asked for a photo and asked me a few questions about my relationship with Grayson and it turned out that they had been filming it. They caught me off guard and my answers weren’t intended to come off the way they did.

People have been asking for the Hawaiian values I was talking about so this is my attempt but they are hard to explain in English. Okay so while these aren’t all Hawaiian values these were the ones I felt like I knew the most and could describe the best. Most of these definitions I found online, I just added the background info and a little bit to the definitions.

Background info: Hawaiians have a very strong symbiotic relationship with the land (‘āina). Our creation legend is actually very similar to the beginning of the greeks. First there was chaos (I believe the name was Po?) and then came Papa and Wakea, the Earth and the Sky. Papa gave birth to the islands and the Stars. The Stars and the Sky have a child, but the child is a stillborn. They bury the child and with the mothers tears the first kalo plant grows (taro). The second child is Haloa aka man. So the reason we have these values and such is because there is this familial connection to the world around us. We take care of the 'āina and it will provide for us. This symbiosis is the key to why these moral values mean so much. Like reason we value these things is basically because we owe the earth, our family, our ancestors, the plants, the animals, the ocean, the sky, we owe all of them for our existence and when you follow these values you are honoring them and all they have done for you. The english translations don’t really hold that same weight, they are just words, they don’t have the generations of meaning behind them.

Aloha is a value, one of unconditional love. Aloha is the outpouring and receiving of the spirit.
This is so important, like it is so prevalent in Hawaii. I have never experienced a community be more loving.

The value of work: To work with intent and with purpose.
As in, don’t be lazy or half ass something for that won’t produce good products.

The value of perseverance. To persist, to continue, to perpetuate. Never give up.

The value of hospitality, a hospitality of complete giving. Welcome guests and strangers with your spirit of Aloha.
We treat most people like family unless they have proven themselves to be rude or undeserving, that’s why tourism starting in Hawaii actually.

Those who are family, and those you choose to call your family. As a value, ‘Ohana is a human circle of complete Aloha.
Family doesn’t mean blood here. Like if someone has disrespected you and doesn’t act pono you don’t have to keep calling them family, however we give a lot of second chances. And almost all family friends are just family. Like I might not be related to them, but they are still family.

The value of teamwork: Collaboration and cooperation. Harmony and unity. People who work together can achieve more.

The value of communication, for “All of us.” We are in this together.
Learn to speak the language of we.
Basically the hawaiian version of “we’re all in this together”

One’s personal sense of responsibility. “I accept my responsibilities, and I will be held accountable.”
This one is super important. When someone says that something is your kuleana it means that this is very important. For example it is our kuleana to pick up litter. If we don’t then the land will suffer. However by just saying kuleana that second sentence is implied.

The value of learning. To know well. To seek knowledge and wisdom.

The value of humility. Be humble, be modest, and open your thoughts.

To honor the dignity of others. Conduct yourself with distinction, and cultivate respectfulness.
This is why we call people older than us Aunty and Uncle, why we call our elders Tutu. Why you always bring food to someones house and offer to clean up.

The value of stewardship. To take care of. To serve and to honor, to protect and care for.

“Thank you”, as a way of living. Live in thankfulness for the richness that makes life so precious.
Granted we don’t say this as a moral value as much as the others, but it is still important. Like saying please is important, but if you don’t say thank you you are in huge trouble because you aren’t respecting those around you.

The value of integrity, of rightness and balance. The feeling of contentment when all is good and all is right.
I don’t really like the way they defined this, it is so much more than that, but this one there really is no proper english equivalence. It’s like doing the right thing because it is right, because this is what is expected of you as a Hawaiian. I have a really hard time explaining it. To be pono is to do the right thing. but it’s more than that. it’s like with kuleana, you are pono because you do your kuleana. because to be pono is to respect all those who came before you and all those who come after you. If an aunty tells you that you aren’t being pono that stops most people in their tracks. it just holds so much meaning and I really can’t explain it better.

The Break Part 2

A/N: Ugh, this is shit and I’m sorry guys…I felt bad about not posting and I wanted to get this out, It’s short and unedited but I hope you find something you like about it 

Pairings: Bucky Barnes x Reader (au)

Tagging: @learisa @turnmyheaphonesuprealloud @poemwriter98

Warnings: I don’t think there’s any in this part…a little angst maybe

Word Count: 441

Summary: Everything was going okay before receiving that message, now it seems like your relationship and life with Bucky is spinning out of your control.

By the time I opened my eyes the room was in near darkness, the only light coming from the blinds I’d forgotten to close before falling asleep. With a soft groan I rolled over onto my back, rubbing the heel of my hands over my eyes before glancing around the room. The apartment was silent, something that it hadn’t been in months, even when Bucky and I weren’t talking. There was always some kind of noise.

After arguments he’d still sit and watch the tv, clinking his ring against his beer bottle purely because he knew it pissed me off; he’d raise the volume on whatever show was on, smirking to himself when I’d roll my eyes before leaving the room. I’d toss a few insults over my shoulder but he never paid them any mind. I’d slam the doors, grumbling to myself about the fight I couldn’t even remember; Sometimes turning the radio on in the kitchen, matching him for sound, just to see who’d crack first.

But now it was quiet and I didn’t like it.

Okay so, new thoughts about the ‘Sacrifice Arcadia Bay’ ending. Keep it as it is.

Just add one more scene at the end, after we fade out on the car. 

Like the ‘dark room’ teasers, it starts with the camera pointing at a shelf - but instead of binders, its books about photography, skateboarding, indie and punk music, travel books for countries all around the world. 

Then pan around, the room illuminated by the light of the golden hour flooding through an open window, and we see that on the table there is an unfinished scrapbook album being worked on, full of pictures of Max and Chloe at various points over the next few years. You can see that they were happy together - oh, and there’s at least one photo of them kissing. 

There’s also a bunch of newspaper clippings strewn around the table, about the survivors and the victims of the Arcadia Bay tornado - with certain people surviving based on your relationship with them, but still too many dying, always too many. There’s the photo of young Joyce and William, dog-eared and with splashes of water damage around the edges, recovered from the wreckage of the Price house.

There are articles about Max’s photography career, and several about awards Chloe’s won for her varied charity work (for LGBT teens, mental illness, and helping war veterans - there’s so many thanking her for changing their lives) to really bring home the idea that the world isn’t better off losing Chloe Price. Maybe one life is still worth saving, for the difference a single person can make.

As the camera pans away up to the window, a blue jay flies in and perches on the windowsill. There’s a moment of stillness, then the sound of a camera shutter, and a flash of light. 

Tolkien's Most Beautiful Relationships

Okay, I’ve limited this post to the First Age, because I really felt like digging in to that period’s particular brand of angst tonight. And I only managed to narrow it down to the five most beautiful relationships, so here they are (in no particular order.)


  • Why: This one’s probably going to surprise some of you, since (a) I don’t often have nice things to say about Feanor, and (b) these two have a pretty well-established animosity. But, though the “warring political brothers” trope is a very common one in fantasy, I think Tolkien gives us one of the most noble examples I’ve ever seen. Feanor and Fingolfin are on the opposite sides of family and political drama, and had we managed to get in the same room together one more time they probably would have killed each other, but they never once don’t seem like family, you know?
  • The Quote That Gets Me Every Time:For Fingolfin held forth his hand, saying: ‘As I promised, I do now. I release thee, and remember no grievance.’ Then Feanor took his hand in silence; but Fingolfin said: 'Half- brother in blood, full brother in heart will I be. Thou shalt lead and I will follow. May no new grief divide as.’ 'I hear thee,’ said Feanor. 'So be it.’ But they did not know the meaning that their words would bear.” - The Silmarillion
  • If You Like Them, Check Out: Aldarion and Erendis (found in The Unfinished Tales)


  • Why: There’s a reason this is one of the most popular ships (whether platonic or romantic) in the Silmarillion fandom. The sons of the above entry, they find themselves on opposite sides of the Noldorin feud, and yet time and again put their friendship first (whether it’s sending gifts back and forth across Beleriand, or planning battles together.)
  • The Quote That Gets Me Every Time:But Fingon climbed to the foot of the precipice where his kinsman hung, and then could go no further; and he wept when he saw the cruel device of Morgoth. Maedhros therefore, being in anguish without hope, begged Fingon to shoot him with his bow; and Fingon strung an arrow, and bent his bow. And seeing no better hope he cried to Manwe, saying: 'O King to whom all birds are dear, speed now this feathered shaft, and recall some pity for the Noldor in their need!’” - The Silmarillion
  • If You Like Them, Check Out: Cirion and Eorl (found in The Unfinished Tales)


  • Why: Ugh, even thinking about these two makes me sad. Turin was just a child when he met Beleg, but the two became friends, and Beleg helped Turin grow into the great warrior he became. And then Beleg (a hero of his people) basically abandons everything to keep Turin company on his little walkabout, with miserably tragic results (I don’t know what it is with Tolkien, but he seems to really enjoy punishing his characters’ friends.)
  • The Quote That Gets Me Every Time: 'Give me leave, lord,’ said Beleg, 'and I will guard him and guide him as I may; then no man shall say that elven-words are lightly spoken. Nor would I wish to see so great a good run to nothing in the wild.’” - The Silmarillion
  • If You Like Them, Check Out: Legolas and Gimli 


  • Why: Do we even need to talk about this one? No, I didn’t think so.
  • The Quote That Gets Me Every Time:You must choose, Beren, between these two: to relinquish the quest and your oath and seek a life of wandering upon the face of the earth; or to hold to your word and challenge the power of darkness upon its throne. But on either road I shall go with you, and our doom shall be alike.“ - The Silmarillion
  • If You Like Them, Check Out: Frodo and Sam


  • Why: Aegnor and Andreth are one of my favorite (and most tragic) Middle Earth romances. But toss in Aegnor’s brother Finrod and you get a really beautiful friendship. After Aegnor leaves Andreth (trying to spare them the pain that their separate destinies would cause them), Finrod takes to visiting Andreth and having long discussions about history and philosophy, trying to cheer her up a bit.
  • The Quote That Gets Me Every Time:Darkness fell in the room. He took her hand in the light of the fire. 'Whither go you?’ she said. 'North away,’ he said: 'to the swords, and the siege, and the walls of defence…’ 'Will he be there, bright and tall, and the wind in his hair? Tell him. Tell him not to be reckless. Not to seek danger beyond need!’ 'I will tell him,’ said Finrod. 'But I might as well tell thee not to weep. He is a warrior, Andreth, and a spirit of wrath. In every stroke that he deals he sees the Enemy who long ago did thee this hurt. But you are not for Arda. Whither you go may you find light. Await us there, my brother - and me.’“ - The Histories of Middle Earth vol. 10 ("Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth”)
  • If You Like Them, Check Out: Elrond and the never-ending procession of his brother’s descendants (especially Aragorn)

okay y'all, i need to brag about my super fucking amazing girlfriend for a second.

distance isn’t easy. especially when you live 8,000+ miles apart. and we live in separate countries. but holy shit, every one of those miles are worth it, for her. i’ve never had this love before. i’ve never felt this same love and have it also reciprocated. i’ve found my person, i’ve found the other part of my soul, my missing puzzle piece. i’ve never had some one care for me so much. my heart is so warm, full, complete. i’ve found who i want to spend my life with. i don’t think i tell her how much i appreciate her. she deserves so much. and goddamnit, i’ll spend my entire live choosing her.

i love you with my entire soul @bztumblahhh thank you for loving me unconditionally.

anonymous asked:

okay so i saw a post on tumblr that said it was okay to dump ur partner if you found out they were ace and honestly i felt hurt like it just made me feel even more undesirable as an ace idk why i'm telling you this like i just needed to say it to someone who actually cares about aces

wow, it’s funny that you mention this (read: not at all funny) because i just found out that one of my fave blogs on the mental illness side of tumblr reblogs acephobic posts not as a fluke but actually, regularly. thanks i guess!!!!!! not like we’re othered enough already!!!!!!

what i will say is that it is perfectly okay to not want to be in a relationship with an ace person because they’re sex-repulsed and you need sex in a relationship. it’s not fair to ask someone to give up sex if that’s what they need to make a relationship work (i think. i don’t get it really bc, uh. ace here. never needed sex in my life.) HOWEVER, if you’re in the relationship already that should’ve been discussed?? it’s on both of the partners to make their needs known at the beginning what the fuck. or to organize and open relationship (what i have) so that both needs can be met. putting a blanket over all ace people as the same (sex-repulsed) just shows a level of ignorance that borders on moronic. plenty of ace people enjoy sex holy shit???

the situation where in the middle of a relationship you realize someone is ace should never happen. make that shit clear. that’s a party foul on both of their parts.

but anyway, anon, don’t worry about it. you’re not undesirable. i know so, so many aces and a lot of us are in happy relationships where our partners understand our limits. if someone isn’t going to respect your sexuality and your limits then a) they’re a pile of rotting sewage and b) you don’t need them and c) there is someone a million times better for you out there than this one stinker. have hope, sweetheart

anonymous asked:

Thank you. I just came across one of your posts, on being a pet without an owner, and it was the first time it felt like someone really understood. I felt valid for once in being a pet. I don't know if you meant it this way, but I felt like it was okay to be a pet without it being sexual or a kink for once. Thank you.

Well I firmly believe that “pet play”, while under the BDSM umbrella, does not need to be 100% sexual. I personally do not participate in the sexual side of it, maybe that’s because I’m asexual, but I am sure some of that came out in my writing. -nods firmly- but I’m glad that you felt understood, I try to write my posts as something very easy to relate to. I do not consider myself to be “above” any other pet just because of the knowledge I hold, so I try to write as if I’m talking to a pet who is new, whether they are or not. I try to get on the same level of understanding as them.

Feel free to message me if you have any more questions or need someone to talk with.

‘Kin vs. ‘Hearted

Several years ago, an old friend and I played at being wolves all the time. They were, hands-down, her favorite animal. She drew them every day and owned wolf paraphernalia like bedsheets and clothing, and she told me about how she wished she were a wolf and felt like she should have been one, but she wasn’t, and sometimes that made her horribly sad.

The thing is, she knew what therianthropy was, and she recognized that she was not a wolf therian. She loved wolves and empathized with them, but she knew she was not one, and knew that it was okay to be human. I often see posts on this website talking about things like “i feel so sad that i’m not X animal” or “I really connect to this animal on a deeper level” and it makes me think of my friend. These things don’t make you any less human than anyone else, and I worry that if someone bases their identity off of a connection with something rather than identifying as it, coming to terms with who they really are later down the road will be all the more difficult.

If I were a therian based on criteria for the label otherhearted, I’d definitely be a manta ray therian. I love the ocean and feel at home in the habitats manta rays thrive in. I’ve seen one before in the wild and felt a genuine empathetic connection that left me breathless, and I love them as a species. But I’m not, I’m a hyena, an animal i was completely ambivalent towards before I awakened.

Nowadays, I feel that the correct terminology for what my friend experienced is otherhearted, not otherkin. And that’s a perfectly acceptable identity, too, don’t get me wrong. I just wish there weren’t so many people trying to force themselves into a label they don’t fit into, when there’s a real term for what they’re experiencing.

Frustrated Jongin's confession (SMUT(?))

“There’s this girl I really like,” he slowly comes closer to you, “but she makes me all horny and frustrated.” Jongin manages to trap you in between his arms and the cold wall. “She never realizes how much I want to fuck her,” he puts a finger under your chin, “and kiss her cherry red lips.” You stare at him, breathing heavily. His thumb slowly traces your lower lip while he’s coming even closer to you. “Ever had the strong urge to kiss someone?” Jongin smirks at you, “or to be fucked tonight?” his face is inches from yours as he stares down at your chest. “Touching everywhere…” his hand goes to the buttons on your shirt, “making them moan…”

Ponyboy sat at the bar with his laptop. He was never one for formal social events or, well, social events at all really but for some reason, he felt tonight was a special occasion… Okay, that was a bold faced lie, the venue just so happened to have fast internet and a weak firewall along with a lot of phones connecting themselves to that unprotected WiFi network. So, naturally, he was digging. Not for any particular reason besides his own curiosity, really, but hell, that’s what he did best, and God, these events were so fucking boring.

He had only partially dressed up for the occasion, nice black pants, shiny new belt, and a white button up, three buttons open, and, well, black beat up converse sneakers. He couldn’t be expected to completely clean up his act for one stupid night, that was just unrealistic. So there he was, sat cross-legged on the bar stool, computer on and a list of files that did not belong to him on his system’s screen. People really didn’t think much of their privacy. Even with the semi-recent iCloud leak everyone was still walking around without proper mobile protection. Steve Jobs was bound to be rolling in his grave.

He had a headphone in and was scrolling through someone’s text messages, only half reading the contents, when he felt a presence behind him and immediately tilted his screen down so whoever it was couldn’t see. Instead of turning around to face them, he looked to the bartender. “Can I get a Stella?” He ordered, always pleased with the United Kingdom’s drinking laws, before finally addressing the presence, still not turning to them as he took a sip. “You don’t have to just stand there, you know. You can order whenever you want.”

Nomi’s Pride Speech

I’ve been thinking about my life and all of the mistakes that I’ve made – the ones that stay with me or the ones that I regret are the ones that I made because of fear.  For a long time I was afraid to be who I am because I was taught by my parents that there’s something wrong with someone like me – something offensive, something you will avoid, maybe even pity.  

Something that you could never love.  

My mom – she’s a fan of St. Thomas Aquinas and she calls Pride a sin.  And of all the venal and moral sins St. Thomas saw pride as the queen of the seven deadly sins.  He saw it as the ultimate gateway sin that would turn you quickly into a sinaholic.  But hating isn’t a sin on that list.  Neither is shame.  

I was afraid of this parade because I wanted so badly to be a part of it.  So today I’m marching for that part of me that was once too afraid to march and for all the people who can’t march:  the people living lives like I did.  Today I march to remember that I’m not just a me. I’m also a we and we march with pride.

So go fuck yourself, Aquinas.

Sense 8, Episode 2: I Am Also A We

@ all the homophobic racists who are coming to me both in my inbox, i.m., or just reblogging my posts.

im the cutest so whos really winning.
