…exceeding just about everyone’s expectations but his own with a solo debut that came fully formed as something close to instantly timeless. “Sign of the Times” was so much more than the sum of its influences; a power ballad that synthesizes the best of U.K. rock history into something important, almost entirely cliché-free, and, well, meaningfully timely. It spends six minutes climbing its way skyward and just keeps going once it gets there, not ostentatious so much as naturally weightless, the first One Direction solo single to truly achieve escape velocity from the group’s gravitational pull.
I think people are too hard on Nina. We always talk about mental illness and being educated and understanding of it. It’s clear Nina is struggling inwardly and I guess I just expected more fans to support her and be a little more sympathetic. It is really not easy to deal with mental illness and it’s even harder to deal with when you feel like the world is against you. I watch Nina on the show and she says she feels like she’s on her own. People get annoyed and angry that she feels like people are out to get her but this fanbase has largely been very negative and hateful towards her. It probably just reaffirms all of those fears. Idk I just watched Untucked and I see some of the girls like Sasha and Peppermint roll their eyes and act like it’s an inconvenience to them that someone is obviously struggling with mental illness. Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t make it any less real. Nina wasn’t just a Debbie Downer she’s a real person with real struggles and it just makes me really disappointed to see how everyone is treating her.
aaaahh i’ve been thinking about this for a really long while, but have finally settled with identifying as a femandrogyne. i don’t care too much about pronouns or being misgendered, but i still prefer female pronouns ! they/them are okay too.
I lost like 6 followers overnight after calling terfs ugly so I just wanna make this explicitly clear:
Every single one of my positivity posts for lesbians is 100% inclusive of trans lesbians. Every single one of my positivity posts for wlw is 100% inclusive of trans wlw. Every single one of my positivity posts for women is 100% inclusive of trans women. And any ugly who disagrees with that sentiment is completely discounted from every positivity post I make 😘
Whilst homophobia cannot officially exclude you from the newsies fandom, you will have to accept the fact that the vast majority of us will hate you. Will you now shut the ever loving god up and stop trying to act like victims because people are calling your out for being homophobic and attempting to use religion to defend yourselves. Y'all are pissing me off.
On a recent episode of mb/mb/am, the mc/elroy brothers discussed a question in which the question asker went to a donut shop to get donuts for herself, as well as her boyfriend and her roommate who she jokingly refers to as “her boys”. She told the cashier that she was getting the donuts for “her boys” and the cashier thought she was talking about her children (that she doesn’t have). The question asker panicked and started lying and claiming that “her boys” were two children aged 5 and 7, and the lies just kept escalating from there until the cashier gave her a free bag of donut holes “for her little boys”
Anyway imagine all of that but it was Brock instead
she crawls up to me in the dead of the night, my heart in the outstretched palm of her hand and says, “i’m not quite sure how to do this.” the moon says it’s too early
to be talking like this and i know to always follow nature’s advice, but i don’t want her to love me the wrong way. but what does the moon know about a girl on earth, a girl with a hole in her chest? what does the moon know about me? i don’t know how to do it either, i whisper, let’s make all the right mistakes for all the wrong reasons. to hell with the moon, with nature, with obligation. love me the wrong way. we can fix it later, sew me back together with a dull needle and ragged thread, patch me and stitch me and fix me. i can be a broken girl for love. if i can heal, too.
some promises should not be made. the moon knows more than i thought she did. turns out she knows everything about a girl on earth, a girl with a hole in her chest where her heart used to be. the dead of the night fades into the fresh breath of the morning sun. i should have taken nature’s advice. i shouldn’t have let her love me the wrong way.
it’s so much easier
than it is
