I was sad about the attack but now I am angry. I too had friends there and I feel guilty that I was relieved that they were ok?? There are 22 families out there who don't get the same relief I did and that's bullshit. We keep being calm and carrying on and yet these bastards just keep attacking us and killing our children. And the government retaliates by killing their children??? What kind of fucked up world is it.

I’m fuming too honestly. And I’m glad I’m fuming, because they want us scared but I’m not scared, I’m just angry as fuck.

What’s fucked up is that a lot of the time, the attacks in Europe are committed by people born and raised here that become radicalised. And then after, we retaliate by attacking the countries the people radicalising them are from. And then it continues in this tragic cycle of innocent people being killed.

Wild idea, but maybe we target the people getting radicalised and the places it’s happening. Maybe we look into the college and university system that’s not doing enough to hinder this. Maybe we question and look into how social media is allowing for educated people to be talked into leaving their families in the UK to marry men twice their age in Syria. Maybe instead of violence - which clearly isn’t fucking working - we try a different approach. Maybe instead of just cutting off one head and waiting for two more to take it’s place, we target the reason so many heads are able to take their place.

“I’m tired of seeing our friends ripped apart from each other. That can’t happen to us again, I won’t let it.”

Because even when they’re facing death, it’s always better if they’re facing it together. Their souls are so intricately linked together that, even though they would sacrifice themselves so that the other can live, anytime, they can’t help their inner desire to be with one another even in the direst times.
And sure, as soon as she realized her words, Jemma corrects herself (“Actually, no, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.”) but it’s stronger than her reason. This ache for him to be near her is etched so deep in her bones that it even surpasses her sensibleness.
And Jemma Simmons is nothing if not sensible. She is the most rational, even when it comes to the people she loves (see season 2 with Skye).
Except for Fitz.

Fitz is the exception. Jemma Simmons doesn’t believe in magic, or the cosmos but she believes in them. In him. In their remarkable, almost mythical bond. When everything falls apart and even when they’re separated, she still believes in them. That they can defeat anything in order to find each other again.

hey so i think im nonbinary and i have always used she/her and dont mind it but they/them kinda feels more ~right~ (do you know what i mean?) anyway i was wondering if im just seeing all of these options that weren't there before and thinking i am but im not really or if i actually am? if that makes sense?? but ive always kinda been androgynous in the way i dressed and acted and was wondering if you had any advise on how to go about figuring this stuff out bc idek - L

i totally understand that feeling!! tbh a good motto that i live by is “if you’re worried that you’re faking it, you’re not faking it.”. and anyway, there’s nothing wrong w experimenting with pronouns and identities until you find what’s right (and u may never do that which is also fine)!!! just try not to stress about possibly faking it or w/e, because as i said chances are you aren’t :’). anyway, gender expression and identity aren’t always linked! just bc ur androgynous doesn’t necessarily mean ur not cis, just bc ur feminine doesn’t necessarily mean ur a girl, etc! i hope this was helpful x

so I was jamming to Youth by Troye Sivan and I had an epiphany to the tune of ‘my youth is yours’ 

fuck that. 

my youth is mine. you can’t have it. I won’t give it to you. I am free to do what I wish with my life, and I don’t owe anyone the best years of it. I can choose to give my youth to someone if I wish, but I certainly don’t have to. I think this needs to be preached more.

Just watched the first two episodes of the path and is it just me or is Hugh really good at playing characters that are vulnerable and tragic, but still strong and dark (if that makes any sense idk if it does)? No spoilers for the path just in case, but he was so brutal but still had this aura of "let me cuddle you" about him...or maybe it's just Hugh's face that makes me feel this way idek.

Hugh is really good at playing characters, I think. ;)

Seriously, though, he’s a leading man type with the acting chops of a strong character actor. Just watch him walk for two seconds as any given character and he’s that character, not whatever character you saw him as last or himself. He has a real physicality to his characters in addition to portraying emotion and his admirable skills with his voice and accents. 

Not that he doesn’t get mileage out of his big eyes and naturally expressive face, because he certainly does. But he can act, and Will Graham was a role of a lifetime for him because it had so much range helped him get out of the typecasting that had so plagued him, of basically romantic leads and a handful of gay or bisexual secondary characters, all generally on the “nice” side of the spectrum, with a few exceptions like his role in Martha Marcy May Marlene (who wasn’t a bad guy–he just wasn’t particularly nice). He had roles that varied (like Adam and Essex), but I don’t think a lot of casting directors could see beyond his pretty face to his skill and work ethic, or even if they did, they still only imagined him applying those things to a very narrow set of roles. I think there’s some danger now of being given roles that run to the creepy–ironically, Hollywood is nothing if not unimaginative–but one step at a time. Cal is a good role because it’s showy–he gets to do a lot–and in my opinion the role at least so far has the most depth and best writing of the three main leads (less telling, more showing).

That’s the great thing about Bryan Fuller and why his shows always have an abundance of such great acting talent, and why actors are always so eager to come back and work with him again. He sees more than just a face or body and understands what the word acting means. Not that he’s unaware of what a face or body can do, but he can look at a sweet face like Hugh’s and think, “Oh, look at how much leverage that will give me as a storyteller to write a character than can do all kinds of morally dubious and creepy shit,” rather than just thinking, sweet face = sweet character. 

ok this is something i’ve tried to ignore but it’s rly starting to bother me so like here we go i guess

why do ppl almost always hc the quiet and/or awkward characters as asexual??

like?? u can be quiet and/or awkward and not be ace?? ur sexuality has literally nothing to do with ur personality?? it’s honestly so annoying that ppl automatically jump to the conclusion that a character must be ace just bc they’re a lil quiet or socially awkward

anyone can be ace. just like anyone can be gay or bi or pan etc. im sick of constantly seeing the same thing over and over. like ya, as an ace person, it’s nice to see ppl making ace headcanons but like. when it’s the same type of character 90% of the time it gets rly aggravating bc its like ppl are saying that there’s a certain image for what an ace person is supposed to be like and act like and that’s just. gross tbh. bc we’re all so different, just like any other person?? and obv im not saying that there isn’t quiet/awkward ppl who are ace bc obv there is, but not every ace person is like that?? lack of sexual attraction isn’t an explanation or reason for why a person/character is quiet or awkward. it’s a completely separate thing?? it’s honestly not that hard to understand like. i myself am awkward as fuck but it has nothing to do with my asexuality u feel me

im not saying to stop headcanoning quiet/awkward characters as ace, that’s not the point im trying to get across, i just. i want ppl to think about this more and be more diverse with the characters they hc as ace u know?? pls stop headcanoning characters as ace solely bc of a few personality traits they possess. and this isn’t directed at fellow ace ppl bc like obviously as ace ppl we’re not gonna stereotype, we just wanna see ourselves in characters we love and that’s rad. but i just rly want all the non-ace ppl to read this and understand how tiring it can be to see the same thing over and over. obviously i can’t speak for every ace person—im sure this isn’t something that bothers every ace person, but i know it bothers me

this got rly long and ranty but im just. rly salty abt this tbh and im sorry if im not making much sense lmao

“It was a big planned thing. I had a different plan, but Sara wanted to take a break”
I feel like Shonda’s statements are just putting so much pressure on Sara. Because she knows that Calzona is a huge ship, and she knows how much it means to so many people, so basically it’s like “if she ever comes back, they’ll be endgame”. But Shonda & co. are the ones who wasted over two seasons, the ones who decided which route Calzona should take, and the only thing we now have is Shonda saying she had planned a reconciliation, but Sara leaving changed things.
