if anything she's gonna be pan or bi or what have you

VLD Headcanons because everyone else is sharing theirs

-Lance has like long ass fingers. The ones that look like boney spider legs and are beautiful. He also has big feet and long toes with the second and third being longer than the big toe. He also has toe rings he once got a renaissance fair and never took off
-Keith has tiny little baby feet and hands(much like my own) and he used to paint all his nails black
-Hunk has giant square manly hands, the kind that one could go around your entire neck
-SHIRO HAS GIRL HANDS! Long, thin well taken care of hands (or hand i suppose). With clean well trimmed nails
-Shiro moisturizes like crazy
-“I don’t want wrinkly old man skin, Keith, like you’re gonna get if you don’t start.”
-Allura’s hands are callosed and a mix of Shiro and Lance’s
-Pidge also has baby hands, and her nails are always dirty or chewed to the roots
-No one has seen Coran without his gloves. Ever. It’s like Kakashi’s mask and the paladins keep trying to get him to take them off
-Keith loves the size difference between his and Lance’s hands and how his can easily dissapear into Lance’s
-Lance is still growing, like he’s gonna end up 6'4 I swear. Lance also likes to make fun of others for being tiny
-His older siblings used to make fun of him cuz he used to be pequeñito so when he comes back to earth he’s taller than most of them and he just cackles wickedly
-Keith’s a 2nd gen american. His grandparents are from Korea and moved to Texas and had his dad. So he has a lot of weird tastes in food like kimchi with pork and beans.
-the others discover this and are like ew what stop no. Why do you eat like that Keith plz
-then they discover how Keith’s dad married Shiro’s mom who is an immigrant from Japan anD SHIRO AND KEITH BOTH HAVE THE GROSSEST TASTE IN FOODS AND I CANT EVEN
- “SHIRO NOT YOU TOO!!”
-Hunk has the best tattoos that are of course a cutural thing, and some are stick and poke. So basically Hunk has a high ass pain tolerance and he woukd hold out the longest against torture just saying
-Lance has an entire back piece of beautiful sea serpent and he was a big ol baby about it, hunk held his hand the entire time
-he also got it without permission and when his mamá first saw it she fucking destroyed him (omg don’t mess with hispanic mothers trust me. Mine is terrifying)
-when Keith first saw his tattoo it was only a glimpse at his lower back and Keith thougHT LANCE HAD A TRAMP STAMP FOR THE LONGEST TIME AND IT BOTH DISGUSTED AND TURNED HIM ON
-Alteans have more than just their face marks and have stuff on their entire bodies(think atla air monk tattoos)
-Keith and Shiro have tight bubble butts I swear
-allura and lance love to squeeze them
-allura can lift shiro and hunk
-everyone can lift Lance even Pidge, he is a literal twig. Doesnt matter how tall he gets he’s still like 120 wet
-he takes advantage of this and makes everyone carry him
-Matt is so manly everyone thinks he’s this little baby nerd cuz he wears glasses but he is the most sporty little shit. He used to run marathons on earth
-he’s also a chicken shit and has the bravery of a nugget.
-Pidge has a fear of puppets/muppets
- Keith is literally fearless it’s stupid. He’ll walk straight into the line of fire and not blink. No one can sneak up on him and scare him (no matter how much Lance tries) however he is TERRIFIED of clowns. If faced with one today he’d still cry
-Shiro and Lance are scared of spiders. Only cuz i think it’s cute
-hunk isn’t scared of anything but he’s not careless like Keith. he’s really chill. However you can ALWAYS sneak up on him and scare him. He can see you or know you’re there but you make a boo noise and he still jumps
-Shiro Keith Hunk and Lance are all weebs. Kpop anime asian dramas manga all that jazz
-Pidge is disgusted that they’re surrounded by these nerds
-also Pidge is genderfluid so their gender depends on the day (boy, girl, nonbinary) so she doesnt really care what pronouns people use for her. Like they’re really chill and couldn’t care less. She also doesnt get hurt if people are ignorant or dont understand
-Lance is forever bi, Pidge is aroace, Allura and Hunk are pan, Keith is gay and demiromantic
-unlike a lot of people’s hc i think Keef is quite clean. He never forgets to shower or brush his teeth. Sometimes he brushes his teeth after each meal (habit from when our baby had braces)
-Keith had braces! His canines stuck out and were pretty prominant (hint at galra blood) and being Korean his dad was like bitch you’re getting those fixed u ugly
-Shiro made fun of him for literal years
-Last one: Shiro is a dick big brother 😂 he’s one of the ones that farts in the younger’s face. He gives Keith so much shit and then acts like a perfect angel in front of others so that no one ever believes Keith. However he slowly started not caring in front of the other paladins anD THEY WERE ALL SO CONFUSED.
-Shiro casually walks behind Keith as everyone is sitting down in the common room and gives him a wet willy. Everyone’s jaw drops as Keith screams at Shiro as he leaves the room laughing. Keith turns to the others is all “I TOLD YOU! AND YOU NEVER BELIEVED ME!”

anonymous asked:

Sophie, I really want to know why you are so diligent about A. Lot. Of. Stuff. But mostly lately why you're so diligent on Camila being gay gay gay. I understand someone wanting someone to be something, and I csnt understand if you're just being playful and witty sometimes or if you really are 100% in your notions. How are you really going to ignore the fact that she does use male pronouns and says Boys, Boys, BOYS.. and you're just always going to think shes lying or making it up? Bi/Pans.

I don’t think you know what the word “diligent” means sweets but anyways I think you mean why am I so set on Camila being gay?

Okay first of all you can’t deny the fact that Camila has been completely inconsistent in her stories - first she didn’t have her first kiss but turned out she did, then she’s never been in a serious relationship but the album is about someone she’s obviously been very serious with, but then again it’s not about boys, so it’s supposed to be about her journey, and yet she keeps bringing up this “relationship” and this “someone” she saw at the studio and thought about while shooting the music video - then the whole album is a concept to tell a story, a story she said she doesn’t have anything more to say about, that she got everything out of her, and yet there she is a couple of days later saying that the album isn’t finished and that she needs a boyfriend to finish it! You add to that the fact that she didn’t sing the “her” during her BBMAS performance, because someone certainly told her not to - I’m not saying Camila is lying because I absolutely want her to be gay, I’m saying she’s lying because I really think she is!  After all these years it’s pretty easy to detect Camila’s bullshit and the management’s plans behind them!

As to me being so set on her being a “lesbian” and not “bi” or “pan” I’m usually just joking around, because non of us know for sure except Camila, she’s the only one who gets to decide what she is and if she even wants to label herself - so when I pull out my Gaymila file or slide it’s usually because there is a gay behavior there and tbh it’s hilarious how many there are!  But nevertheless , my personal opinion, my guess, my theory, that I keep strictly to this blog, is that Camila is a lesbian, just like others are gonna think she’s straight, or bi, or pan, or something else, this is all supposition - if tomorrow Camila identifies herself clearly as one of these sexualities then I won’t love her any less - I won’t lie, if tomorrow she gets a real boyfriend, not a pr stunt, I’ll be disappointed for sure but it won’t be the end of the world, I love her too much to get hung up on that.

That being said, as long as I don’t see her actually in a straight relationship, I’ll keep believing that she’s gay and is forced to stay in closet because of the industry she’s evolving in, which is something that highly pisses me off and worries me.

I’ll add to that I have the right to have a settle opinion and believe what I believe as long as I’m respectful to Camila and to other people’s beliefs - you’ll never see me say to an anon that they’re wrong for believing that Camila might be straight or bi or pan, I just respectfully agree to disagree or use a Camren laughing gif, because I like them and they bring a nice effect! (also I truly find it funny to even imagine Camila with a guy, I can’t help it, it’s just the way my brain works - just like I find mascots falling hilarious, I find straight Camila hilarious as well)

You know I once answered to an anon who thought all the Camren theories were absurd, that you should just take this whole thing as a giant fanfic that feeds off real events, and in my fanfic Camila happens to be gay - I’ll never bring that fanfic into the real world because I’ll never directly bother the girls with it, and as long as I do that, I see no reason for me not to be as delusional as I want to, and believe Camila is as gay as it comes.

Hey! I really loved your fic where Kara came out to Maggie! Do you think you'll write/would you write a follow up of the next morning where Kara says all the things to Alex? You are amazing and I am in awe of your artistic gifts

(The first fic that this wonderful Anon is referring to – http://archiveofourown.org/works/9122290/chapters/21282563 )

“Hey, hey, I can walk. Or fly. Should I fly?” Kara’s sleepy words are stumbling almost as much as her feet, and Alex and Maggie both smirk softly.

“Nah, Kid Danvers, best save the flying for later, huh? When you’re a little less – ”

“Groggy,” Alex supplies, and presses a kiss to Kara’s forehead as she and Maggie work to lay Kara down squarely in the center of Maggie’s bed.

They tuck her in from either side, and Kara whines when they start to retreat back into the living room space of the studio.

“Noooo, Alex, you just got home, don’t go! Maggie’s comfy, tiny, so tiny, but she’s comfy, and you’re comfy, and – ”

“Shhh, Kara, I’m gonna eat something, and then I’ll come right to bed, okay?”

“Maggie too?”

“Yeah, Little Danvers, I’ll come too.”

“Promise?”

“Promise.”

Satisfied, Kara grins sleepily and settles down into the pillows, her breathing starting to even out again.

“She’s been crying,” Alex whispers to Maggie, and Maggie nods as she pours water for Alex and gestures her toward the two slices of pizza they’d left for her.

Alex digs right into it cold, a habit she’d picked up from Maggie; and normally, Maggie would made a snarky comment, but tonight? Tonight, she lets it go with a soft, affectionate smile and a passionate kiss to Alex’s cheek.

“Mmmm,” Alex hums, leaning into Maggie as she chews, and as soon as she swallows she turns her face to put her lips on Maggie’s, and Maggie sighs and sinks into the kiss, and her lips part and Alex wants to take her right here, right now, but Kara, Kara, Kara.

She pulls back and both of their bodies keen at the loss.

“She’s okay, Alex. She just… like I said, she just has some stuff she wants to talk to you about.”

Alex chugs water and pizza and more water and more pizza.

“Okay but what stuff? Is she alright? Did someone hurt her? Why didn’t she come to me? What – ”

“Whoa whoa, okay, Danvers, listen to me. Eat your pizza and come to bed. Okay? I’ll go out in the morning to get you both breakfast, and Kara will talk to you then. She’s fine. I promise. And if you’re not fine when she tells you what she has to tell you, that’s okay. I’ll be here. And so will she. Okay? Nothing’s wrong.”

With anyone else, Alex would fight. With anyone else, Alex would resist and insist and push harder, harder. But with Maggie? Alex stares at Kara’s sleeping form – she’s safe, she’s safe, Maggie’s been taking good care of her, she’s safe – and sighs, and chews, and swallows, and nods.

“Let me brush my teeth. And then you’re going to find out what it’s like to share a bed with a little sister who fidgets in her sleep. And has Kryptonian strength.”

“Well, her sister’s pretty damn strong, and I can handle her in bed just fine,” Maggie lowers her voice an octave or two, and Alex nearly swoons.

“Maggie! Kara’s right there!”

“She’s sleeping – ” Maggie tickles her.

“Maggie!” Alex shrieks a soft laugh and tickles her right back.

“No funny business with Kara around, even when she’s in dream land. Yes ma’am. Come to bed, Danvers.”

And she does, and she stays awake long after Maggie settles on the other side of Kara, long after Maggie’s breathing evens out, long after the soft circles Maggie’s tracing on Alex’s arm – both of their arms thrown over Kara’s stomach – slow and stop because Maggie’s fallen asleep.

She stays awake, and she relishes the heat of her little sister next to her, the way that Kara, even in sleep, feels safe enough to snuggle with both her and Maggie.

She stays awake, and she wonders what Kara could possibly have told Maggie before telling Alex.

She doesn’t remember falling asleep, but she’s woken up by a soft kiss on her lips.

“Morning, beautiful,” Maggie greets, and Alex smiles groggily and reaches for Maggie’s cheek.

“Hey,” she croaks, and Maggie’s smile deepens.

“Hey there. Listen, your sister’s in the bathroom, and I’m gonna hit the gym with James and then bring you both back breakfast. Okay?”

“Mmmhmmm.”

She’s still yawning and stretching when Maggie kisses her one more time – two more times, three more times – and slips out of the apartment.

She jumps when Kara speaks, not having noticed her slipping out of the bathroom. She’s wearing one of Maggie’s college hoodies, and Alex’s heart warms.

“You really love her, don’t you?” Kara asks, and Alex rubs her eyes and sits up.

“What makes you say that?”

“You’re usually out of bed like a shot. But you trust her. She makes you feel safe.”

Kara plops on the bed in front of Alex as her older sister sits up, nodding.

“She makes you feel safe too, apparently. What was so scary you couldn’t come to me first, Kara? I mean, not that I mind you going to Maggie. I like it, I like that you trust her, love it, but I… Kara, what is it?”

Alex might be more relaxed in the morning, being with Maggie, but she certainly hasn’t lost any of her directness. Kara sighs and adjusts her glasses before staring at her sister and taking them off completely.

Alex’s stomach twists. That means they’re in for a really intense conversation. She puts her hands on her sister’s, careful not to interfere with the way her fingers fidget with themselves, with Maggie’s sweatshirt, with the comforter.

“Kara, I love you. Whatever it is, you can – ”

“I like girls. Women. I like men, too. I’m bisexual, Alex. Or, pan. I – I don’t know. I’m not sure what word feels right yet. Maggie says it’s okay that I don’t know yet. She says I don’t have to be sure. But the thing I am sure of is… is that I like girls, too. Not just guys.”

She looks more terrified than she did when facing off with Reactron, and Alex blinks once. Blinks twice. Blinks again.

“So, you’re queer.”

She stands and she paces and her brow stays furrowed and Kara’s lip trembles.

“I’m sorry, Alex – ”

“Sorry?” Alex drops to her knees and gathers Kara’s hands back into her own and smooths the hair out of her face and shakes her head. “Sorry? Kara, why would you apologize?”

“I knew you’d be angry – ”

“Angry? Kara, no, I’m not angry! I’m just… I’m just trying to figure out why you’d tell my girlfriend before you’d tell me. And like I said, I love that you’re comfortable with Maggie, I really do, I just don’t understand – ”

“Because you just came out, Alex! You just came out, and you’re just figuring yourself out, and the whole reason you didn’t figure yourself out earlier was me and how selfish I was and now I’m doing it again, I’m taking up that space from you again, and I don’t want to, I don’t want to take anything away from you, I just like her so much and I can’t keep it to myself anymore, but I don’t want to take space from you, not again – ”

“Kara. Kara. Kara. Stop. Stop it. Please, Kara, listen to me. You… you didn’t… Eliza gave me responsibility over you, you didn’t ask for it. You’d just lost your entire planet, Kara, you didn’t ask for me to… to give up my whole life for you. You just wanted a family, and that’s… that’s what you are, Kara, and nothing – nothing, you understand me? – is ever going to change that. You’re not taking anything away from me, Kara. You can be bi, or pan, or queer, or whatever label you like, but you are my sister before you are anything else, Kara. And you deserve to figure yourself out with me at your side, not with… with tears on my girlfriend’s shoulder in the middle of the night when I’m not home. Okay? It’s okay, I just… I want what we’ve always wanted – to share our lives. And if that’s queer lives, all the better. Kara, I love you, always, I – wait. Wait, Kara, did you say – who do you like so much? Who’s her?”

Kara’s wet, smiling eyes suddenly go wide, and Alex’s hand that had been so busy stroking Kara’s hair, wiping her tears, stills.

“Kara.”

“Yeah, this um… this is the other part I was scared you wouldn’t like.”

“Kara. It isn’t Livewire?”

Kara busts out a laugh that nearly causes Alex to overbalance. “What? No! No, it’s not – it’s Lena, Alex. Lena Luthor.”

Alex is quiet.

Alex is quiet for a long, long moment, and she bites the inside of her cheek, and Kara tries desperately to keep breathing.

“Well, she definitely likes you back. And you, Kara, not just Supergirl. So, you know, when Maggie gets back, we can strategize. If you want.”

“Strategize?” Kara’s voice is small, strained, because Alex says Lena likes her back, Alex says Lena likes her back, Alex isn’t mad, Alex isn’t mad, Alex loves her always, always, always.

“Well, come on, Kara. You have about as much game outside of that suit as… as Winn has.”

Kara reaches to adjust her glasses and fumbles when she remembers that they’re not on her face. Alex arches an eyebrow and leans back, her case in point.

“It – I – that’… I – I have plenty of game – ”

“As Supergirl, maybe. We’ve gotta figure out a way to channel that SuperSuave into Kara Danvers.”

“I… you love me, Alex?”

“Always, Kara. Always.”

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sexuality Crisis

Magnus had never been attracted to boys before, only girls. He could appreciate the aesthetic of them, but never before had he wanted to date one. He was as straight as a rod-always had been, and always will be.

So it wasn’t gay of him to think Alex was cute. She was cute on both her female days and male days. It wasn’t gay at all.

Right?

Or: Magnus has a crisis over whether liking Alex is gay or not and everyone else is facepalming at him.

Read it on AO3 and FanFiction

Magnus was straight.

Sure, he had that period of time where he had questioned his sexuality after learning that heterosexuality wasn’t the only one, but everyone went through that. And by the time it was over, he had decided that he was nothing other than straight. The thought of being anything else never crossed his mind again.

But just because Magnus was straight didn’t mean he couldn’t appreciate the aesthetic of other guys from time to time. He wasn’t blind, he could tell whether people were attractive or not. And sometimes, those guys were pretty nice to look at for a moment or two longer than necessary. But he never once felt the desire to do anything romantic with them, because he wasn’t attracted to guys. It was as simple as that.

“See something ya like?”

season 4 concept: vilde wears the gay Jesus shirt

aMAZING, YES, 

ok but ??? i’m taking this concept as an evilde prompt alrigt?? is that cool wit u?? (how will she do that, with that concept?, you ask, well, listen, listen up, listen here friend, amigo, buddy, i will tell you, lstne)

there’s a party at kollektivet. ok. a bunch of ppl end up crashing and spending the night there, vilde included. the night was fun, but most of the few who slept over feel shit awful in the morning. she wakes up tangled up w/ eva ofc, but eva is sleeping like a log and there’s not enough room on the sofa for vilde to sit there comfortably awake and her arm’s gone numb under eva’s weight so she just Excuses Herself.

thing is, she can’t really remember last night too well. but she’s pretty sure eva came onto her again. and that’s not a problem! that is. super, super far from a problem. the problem is: eva is still seeing chris. and. she does not know. which of these two… habits. is the serious one. is the one that means something. (if any of them even do mean something.) and thinking about that is way too much for a hungover saturday morning in a trashed living room, especially not with eva wrapped around her like that, so yeah. she leaves. she gets up and goes. not gonna think about that right now. 

even is around in the morning, too. he’s maybe making coffee, waiting for isak to wake up. (he always handles hangovers a lot better than isak does, and besides, he’s paying a bit more attention to how much he drinks these days. so he didn’t get wasted or anything. he’s just a bit sleepy.)

vilde meets him in the kitchen. they have casual, quiet conversation; vilde vaguely aware that it’s probably the first time she’s spoken to even without isak or friends around, but also vaguely aware that she’s just sort of Looming w/o a real purpose and doesn’t even find that weird (are they close enough for that to be not-awkward yet?), and she’s aware that she doesn’t remember if even saw any of the things that happened last night with eva, and aware that there’s wine spilled down the dress which she’s still wearing the morning after– but even is totally unfazed. he just offers coffee. which she declines, of course (black coffee??? no thanks). but even is good with conversations, vilde notices? which is great for her, honestly, because as much as vilde likes to be social and in control of her social relationships - god, she feels bad this morning. thanks even. for letting her just. lean against the counter and not have to do anything. for asking her if there’s any kosegruppa events coming up; if she needs help with any of them, y’know, if isak and him can help in any way then they’re down, like, even baking for it would be chill - isak is terrible at cooking, but it’s okay, even’s god-tier cooking skills make up for that - and did isak ever tell you that it was at kosegruppa that they met?, so really, they owe it to her in the first place, because if isak didn’t attend then maybe he wouldn’t even be in this kitchen right now; and the conversation is never stilted, and even is so natural, and no wonder isak is in love with this guy, she thinks.

and oh, she said that out loud. because even is laughing in that confident way of his (it’s soft enough to not wake any guests, but evidently pleased), and vilde smiles politely, but… she gets. a lil bit. uh. sad. because she’s never had that with a guy. she’s wanted to talk about them as passionately as even talks about isak, she even has talked about them passionately. but there’s something hollow about it. something that doesn’t feel quite right. it’s the same thing that made her tired of magnus, too; it felt great to finally be wanted but the novelty of it just wore off way too fast for it to be real. there’s something missing. always, always, always. something genuine. it’s the same something that practically radiates off of isak and even. something that feels comfortable and warm and cozy. something that feels like when eva pulls her into a hug. something that sounds like when eva says “fuck chris, he’s not here tonight”. something about their girls nights, when it’s only her and–

“so, eva, huh,” even says, and vilde practically jumps off of the counter. she’s all deflections and accusations at first. what?? what is it?? what about us?? which is just. Very suspicious. and Weird. so she calms down a little. even follows up: you guys seem close, that’s all. because even is Not dumb. (and, yeah, maybe eva had a short drunken conversation with him last night that vilde isn’t aware of). vilde’s like, yeah, we’re close, we’re best friends! and then. there’s silence. just silence where even washes some dishes and vilde stares at her feet. she almost wants to take back what she was thinking about how even makes conversation easy. this was deliberate. she clears her throat. and asks if she can use his shower. 

now, that has even turning around, eyebrows raised. “my shower?”. vilde’s still wound up from the previous part of the conversation, so she just shrugs, yeah, the shower, she’s got wine down herself from last night, besides nobody else is using it right now. then it clicks. ohhh. oh. this isn’t even’s place. even doesn’t- oh. but it’ll be fine, right? the others won’t mind if she uses the shower. even is still laughing. “what?! you practically live here already. noora told me!” “i know, i know, it’s just- isak mentioned it the other day, too. this place being mine also. it’s nice.” that has vilde smiling again. and still, a little jealous too. but even tells her that yeah, she’ll be allowed to use the shower, there’s towels in the cupboard, and if she wants some breakfast after then even can make french toast. 

it’s a little unnerving that he’s being so nice to her. she feels like he knows something she doesn’t. before she escapes to the bathroom, he says something like. “hey. you can talk to me, okay? whenever you need to.” they share another knowing look. and vilde relaxes again. maybe she can talk about these feelings. i mean, isak and even had some relationship troubles before. surely even knows that… this stuff isn’t always easy. he’d understand, right? wouldn’t he? so, even lets her go, and vilde feels like with just that one tiny interaction, she’s safe. she’s not ready to talk now, but whenever she is, it’ll be okay. and when she’s finished showering and drying off, there are some sweatpants and a shirt outside the door, which vilde is Eternally grateful for.

but… a jesus shirt??? even has a weird ass fashion sense

(Gays look out for Gays!!! also, even tells isak to cut vilde some slack next time he’s groaning @ some annoying task she’s assigned him. ‘be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about’. when vilde’s ready, she’ll talk!!!!! listen y’all, lesbian vilde, bi eva, gay isak, pan even: the True Gay Crew)

Once Upon a Time as a subversive take on fairy tales 

This is going to be (probably) the first explanatory post re-cast series. I mean it’s no secret that Once Upon a Time basically fails to be subversive, sometimes managing to be even more conservative than Victorian tales and the Grimm Brothers (ha ha fuck the Grim Brothers). And more often than not destroying whatever significance original mythologies (ahem, the Underworld arc, Orpheus and Eurydice. Seriously he gets torn to shreds by nymphs after he becomes a misogynist. If only) and more recently Jekyll and Hyde (HOW? It’s like crashing a car in the desert). 

Anyway the re-cast is meant to be everything the show isn’t. Racially diverse and well, gay af. Planned & Endgame Swan Queen. So I’m gonna start explaining my reasoning for each re-cast and probably do a new post for when I have the other cast members. Links to each edit are in the actors’ names. They all have playlists because why the hell not.

Can we please stop freaking out over Gency?

I get it. You don’t like Gency. I don’t like it either. In fact, it’s my personal NOTP. I’m a hardcore Pharmercy shipper, actually. I’m also extremely, 100% gay as fuck. But harassing shippers? Demanding Blizzard make Pharmercy canon? Fucking stop it. First of all, this is a FICTIONAL ship. They are FICTIONAL characters.

It’s not a gay ship? Who. The fuck. Cares. First things first: Gency is implied. Sure. But TBH, nothing has been confirmed just yet. If they were together, they could just as well be bi. And if they are straight? If Gency happens to be confirmed? I’m totally fucking okay with it. You know why? I’ll explain why.

This is not a case of heteronormativity or queerbaiting. In case you’ve forgotten, Tracer, THE FUCKING FACE OF THE GAME, is a lesbian. All indicates that Junkrat and Roadhog, and maybe McCree and Hanzo are gay/bi/pan as well. We HAVE representation in this game. Blizzard said they care about variety. Of course there was gonna be a straight pairing. And like it or not, Gency makes sense in universe. It’s a well-liked pairing. Why the hell not then?

“But Emily is a minor character and Genji and Mercy are major heroes! That’s not really representation!” True, Emily is a minor character. But I’m pretty damn sure there is going to be at least one line about Emily in the Valentine’s Day event (really Blizz, if you care about representation then don’t make Emily vanish. This I’m concerned about.) And they said there were multiple LGBT characters. We know the man with Pharah in the comic was not her date, so she might still be LGBT. I’m pretty convinced Junkrat and Roadhog are dating, and Blizz seems to be teasing McHanzo as well. Symmetra’s VA seems to have hinted at Sommetra. I can’t see Zarya as anything other than LGBT. Have patience. The LGBT ships between heroes will come. I trust Blizzard.

Stop hating on Genji because he “stole” Mercy away from Pharah. Genji’s a lovable character. He’s a nice guy. And the same goes for Genyatta (which I also ship) shippers hating on Mercy. It’s the exact same thing about hating on Emily simply because she’s not Widowmaker. It’s not about representation, it’s about ship wars and you damn well know it. It’s the same thing as Widowtracer vs Emilena and *you know it.*

“But the jerk dudebros will have won if Gency/a straight pairing becomes canon!” Uh, no. Do you know who actually ships Gency? Regular people like me and you and any other normal shipper out there. The jerk dudebros don’t ship anything. The jerk dudebros don’t give a shit about Gency or any other straight pairing. The jerk dudebros want all female characters to be straight so they can have an imaginary chance of fucking them. *They* are the people who were freaking out over Tracer being gay. When you harass Gency shippers, you’re not attacking jerk dudebros, you’re attacking regular, nice people who don’t think like the jerk dudebros and just want to be able to like what they like in peace. Why is this so hard to see? When you behave like that, you behave just like the assholes who send hate to anyone who ships LGBT ships because they’re homophobic. You behave just like the people who do that to you. So if you don’t wanna be treated that way, why would you treat others that way? Why would you demand respect and tolerance when you give other people none?

Personally? I’m a bit bummed if Gency becomes canon. I don’t like Gency. But in all honesty? I think the lines are cute. I don’t like the pairing, sure, but the lines themselves are cute.

There is literally NOTHING stopping you from shipping Pharmercy or Genyatta. Stop trying to bully Blizzard into giving up on Gency by using representation as an excuse for your ship hate. It costs zero bucks to be a decent fucking person. This kinda shit makes LGBT shippers, and shippers in general, look bad. This kinda shit gives people who already hate us for existing an excuse to call us nazis and bullies. Because you guys are behaving just like the heteronormative bullies you claim to hate; you are hating on a straight pairing (which admittedly has chemistry) simply because it’s straight and are trying to force Blizzard to push it under the rug because it’s not gay. *This is exactly what homophobes do with gay pairings that have chemistry and subtext. They bully the creators into denying it because they can’t stand that it’s gay and harass anyone who happens to like said pairing.* Fucking look at what you’re becoming.

Fucking.

Stop.

It.

Peace out.

EDIT: I’m taking the ships out of the tags because someone politely asked me to and you know what, they’re right. People who search for their ships want to see good stuff about the ship in question. I’m tagging this as ship wars and ship discourse instead, because this is what this is about. Peace out (2).

My Coming Out Story (And my undying love for Supergirl)

I’m gonna talk about Supergirl for a second and why the queer story line is so goddamn important and why tonight’s episode hit me so hard.

So, in case my profile doesn’t *scream* Gay… Here I am, formally saying yes- I am indeed gay. This isn’t anything new, I’ve been “out” since I was 18, I came out the 6th of October and I take a moment out of my day every year on that date to reflect on how much my life has changed since I did come out. Now, getting to Supergirl… I’ve been watching the show since day 1, badass female leads? Superhero? Strong role model young girls could look up to? I was sold. And then we found ourselves where oh so many shows do, it wasn’t bringing in the viewers but instead of being cut- they moved it to the CW and it was announced that there was going to be a queer character on one of the superhero shows. Being gay and an avid Supergirl watcher, my brain went straight to badass sister of Supergirl herself- Alex Danvers.
Not only was I, (and just about the ENTIRE world) correct in my assumption. I had no idea I would fall head over heels for her freaking beautiful badass Agent (now girlfriend) Maggie Sawyer. But the journey that would come out of, well… Alex’s coming out, would remind me so much of my own.
Regularly on shows that have a queer character coming out they don’t show the internal struggle, not only are you dealing with a part of yourself that you either never made sense of- or in my case buried so deep down that you never wanted to confront it, you suddenly have to show everyone around you that you’ve had this mask molded onto you from birth that you’ve never been able to take off. This mask, this safety blanket, this “normality” in the eyes of some is exactly what makes coming out so goddamn hard.

I had known I liked girls since kindergarten. That’s no exaggeration. I can remember my after school program had put on a play, “Sleeping Beauty” and I had watched and memorized it- start to finish… So what did I do? I asked the chaperones if they could put the play on again, they said sure- and then they asked me what part I wanted to play. I simply replied, “The Prince”. And I did. I played the prince entirely from memory in that little play, kissed the princess on the cheek, and saw no wrong in it. No one told me I couldn’t save the princess, no one told me I was wrong.
And then I grew. And as one does, you watch you friends pine after boys and you wonder why you don’t feel the way they describe they feel… Why you feel jealous of them… Not jealous of your girl friends. Jealous of the boys who kiss them, and then you research… And research… And you find this word. This word that you had heard whispers about. Never in your life has a word had so much weight. This word that you identify with, but don’t want to identify with in fear of everything in your life changing. And it does. Because you embrace this word. Whatever that may be. Or you choose to just be you… Whomever that may be.

Me? I suppressed and suppressed and suppressed my feelings for the same sex until I was on the verge of a mental breakdown.
Wanna know how I came out? I had to text it to my mom. Who was in the same room as I was. Because I couldn’t say those three little words, “Mom, I’m gay” My mom, much like Alex’s mom Eliza, knew. And I knew she knew… For years she tried to drag it out of me and I refused to even talk about it with her because simply… I was afraid I was going to disappoint her. I wasn’t afraid of being kicked out. I was afraid of disappointing people I loved. Just thinking about the thought of disappointing the people I loved most in the world, even though I know they knew my darkest secret, scared me more than any physical harm that could ever come to me. Because I felt like my parents thought I was better than being gay. I thought somehow I was lesser than, because that’s how society makes anyone feel who identifies as different. So when Alex came out to her mother this episode, two lines stuck out to me the most:
“I feel like I’m letting you down…” -Alex “Why would you being gay ever let me down?” -Eliza
I identify with Alex on levels so deep, I am the older made-to-be-perfect sibling that takes care of their younger sibling, someone who feels like they need to be a certain way and live a certain perfect life or their parents would be disappointed in them. So when I did come out- the weight lifted off not only my shoulders but my entire body and I cried… And cried… And cried… But that secret I had kept for so many years, that mask that was put on me at birth that I never identified with, it was gone. And I’ve never looked back.

If coming out has taught me anything it’s that being yourself is exactly who everyone wants you to be. There’s no one else like you, there will never be anyone else like you, and your parents should be proudest when you’re being yourself and loving who you are on the deepest levels.

So, you go Alex Danvers. You kiss the girl you want to kiss and if the world doesn’t like it? Fuck ‘em.

What headcanons about Simon and Rebecca and her finding out he's a vampire? (And maybe finding out that her brother is also half in love with the leader of the New York vampires)

(sorry its late but hey its her now bet you thought u wouldnt do it eh?? srsly though im very sorry but life if hard okay here you go)

  • Okay but he basically “comes out” as a vampire so he sits her down all serious and says “I have something important to tell you” and shes just like ??? “Simon you already told me that you’re bi”
  • He then proceeds to tell her he’s a vamire and she just laughs and she’s like “okay Simon that was a good one I thought for a second you were gonna tell me you’re dying” “Well technically I’m already dead Rebecca”
  • she still doesnt belive him for like a week after and keeps making jokes about it so he takes her aside and shows her his fangs and she’s still just like “woah those are some really good prosthetics isnt comic con next month though?” 
  • Eventually he just loses it and is like “Oh my god Rebecca I’m telling the thruth!!” and he has to get Luke and Clary to come back him up
  • She’s still kinda unsure and tells him she has to let it sink in. Eventually though it starts to make sense because you know he looks dead and she doesnt see him eat or drink anything and she’s pretty sure she’s losing her mind but she feels okay about it
  • When she kind of accepts it she has so. many. questions and she literally will text Simon at 3am like “so can you eat garlic?” “no Becca I cant eat anything” “But can you touch it?” “Yes Becca I could touch garlic if I wanted” “Okay good”
  • She gets so excited when Simon tells her he’s dating Raphael and he shows her one of the few pictures of them together where Raphael was caught off guard and is smiling brightly and she’s like “Oh my god he’s so cute!! he looks so sweet omg” and Simon’s just like “yeah he’s super sweet” but he has to warn her that he’s the clan leader and he can be kind of cold
  • It’s super awkward at first but eventually Raphael and Rebecca start getting along and joking and laughing and Simon is like “seriously?? you were so mean to me when we first  meant, no actually you’re still really mean” and Rebecca replies “yeah but Simon you’re annoying” and Raphael just looks at her with the biggest smile on his face like “yes I like her this one is good”
  • basically after a while Simon’s vampireness becomes so normal and he uses his abilities to play pranks on rebecca and startle her and they always spend the holidays together and Simon brings Raphael and Rebecca thinks it’s so cute but she’s not allowed to mention it
Yankity Spankity

Ok. So. I literally have no excuse for this other than the original post made me laugh so hard and my dear friend @thehexperiment is an enabler and wonderful beta. This is like, the shhitpost-iest thing I’ve ever written, and lordy, was it fun but difficult. It was inspired by a zodiac post about which line from 50 Shades you are, and I thought one sounded very nalu-esq, and then another, and another, and it turned into a challenge, I guess? So all of the following phrases can be found in this… whatever it is lol.

Lucy gets handcuffed to a street meter and let’s be real, it’s only an average day when you’re dating Natsu Dragneel in NYC. Did she mention he was a cop?

Pairing: Nalu, Fairy Tail

Words: 4148

Rating: T

Part: One Shot

Natsu was so dead.

Like, ‘Lucy would have to call Juvia and Levy to help her bury the remains of his stupidly perfect body’ dead.

“Natsu Dragneel!” Lucy screamed, metallic clacks urging on her rage as the handcuff banged around the metal of the street meter. “You get your stupid ass back here or so help me God!” She continued to screech at his retreating back. She watched as he ran faster, and blew her an apologetic kiss as he rounded a corner.

Lucy released a loud noise of anger directed at the sky. A small child looked at her with worried eyes before their mother tugged them along sharply, tapping away on her phone urgently with one hand. Lucy’s love-hate relationship with New York was leaning more into the hate aspect right now.

“Bye.” She muttered to herself, mocking Natsu’s departing squeak. “What the hell do I say to my boss. ‘Hi, sorry my piece is late, my boyfriend gently handcuffed me to a street meter and then said ‘bye’.’” Lucy hissed to herself, tugging futilely on the metal encircling her one wrist. “He’s so not getting laid for a fucking week.”

Lucy toed her bag closer, the large tote tipping on it’s side and spilling her phone onto the sidewalk, along with a tube of lip gloss, several pens, and a dog eared paperback. She bent down with a sigh, trying to kick her contents back into the canvas bag after she had retrieved her phone. She glared dangerously as she noticed a young man with blonde hair eyeing her purse, nodding to herself as she watched him shrug deeper into his grey hoodie and scurry away.

“Levy, I need you to come to the corner of twelfth and twentieth. And bring Gajeel’s spare handcuff key.” Lucy sighed heavier as she heard her friend’s baffled voice turn amused.

“Why? What did Natsu do now?”

“Guess.”

“Your boyfriend’s an idiot.” Levy chirped, background noise alerting Lucy to Levy leaving her apartment.

“You don’t know the half of it Lev,” Lucy whined, frowning as she shuffled her bag securely between her ankles, and safely protected from more threatening and broke twenty somethings. “When I woke up from a nap two days ago Natsu had managed to somehow get an orange in my mouth. A whole orange! I still don’t know how.” Lucy groaned under her breath and let her head fall forward to rest on the top of the parking meter she was now leaning on.

“… Was it a small orange?”

“Levy Ashley Mae McGarden you swore to me you would never bring that up!” Lucy banged her forehead on the unyielding metal. Her handcuffed clanked in sympathy.

“I don’t know what you mean, Lucy.” Levy hummed innocently.

“I was drunk off of that contraband vodka Cana brought us.” Lucy defended weakly. “I don’t even remember it.”

hey i cant remember if i requested this or not, sorry if i already did. can you do one where you’re dating jack and youre really nervous but you come out to him as pansexual (meaning you like all genders) and you’re really scared he’s gonna think its weird or gross but he’s super understanding and doesnt care if you’ve been with ppl other than boys

AN So I personally am not pansexual, but my very best friend is so I know a little bit about it. I hope this was what you wanted. You guys are more than free to reblog and put your opinions in the tags and stuff or just like it, or you know, just read it and be like ‘nice’ because who knows maybe you just don’t feel like doing anything. But that’s perfectly alright. I enjoyed this one. Once I got started it wasn’t hard to keep going. Idk why it took me so long, I’m sorry for not posting for a while, I’ll try to do more lovelies. Thank you so much ily xx

Warning: some self deprecating thoughts (may be touchy for some people)

Your POV

Jack was coming over in an hour, and I didn’t know how I felt about it. Today was supposed to be the day I finally came out to him. All he knows right now is that I’m attracted to him. I hope that’s all he cares about.

It took me at least twenty minutes to get up the courage to ask him to come over. I mean, yeah, he’s my boyfriend and everything, I should be happy that I was seeing him. But not if it meant the end of our relationship. Not if it meant the end of everything. Not if it meant he’d see me as something I’m not, or get worried I’d cheat just because gender wasn’t of any preference to me.

I overthought it and overthought it, and I eventually came to the point to where I was lying on the floor, playing with the hem of my shirt. My mind was wandering the endless possibilities of what my boyfriend would say.

anonymous asked:

if riley and maya ended up being together on the show, how would you want it to happen?

so, let’s picture a matthews-hart family dinner w/ rilaya,, corpanga and auggie. 

so, auggie starts openly talking about these boys he saw holding hands at school. 

a: “mom, i think they’re gonna marry each other”

t: “yeah, aug, so do i”

a: “like riley and maya!”

the girls brush it off and go off to riley’s room (they’re both secretly thinking about that and nothing else)

so then, in the middle of the night, when riley’s sure maya’s asleep, she goes to the kitchen to talk to cory and topanga. they tell her what it means to be gay, bi, pan etc 

AND MAYA’S TEXTING SHAWN UNDER THE COVERS WHILE THIS IS HAPPENING!!11 

m: is two girls dating like an actual thing? asking for a friend

s: yup
s: also, go to sleep, kid
s: we’ll talk in the morning

the next day the clique six are in class and cory’s talking about gay rights through the years but let’s be honest they won’t actually use the word ‘gay’ bc disney’s so full of shit

zay starts making comments about rilaya, smackle immediately joins in, farkle’s suppressing a smirk and lucas is like “wtf does this have to do w history?”

and darby. omg. darby fucking walker is over the fucking moon.

so then maya drags riley out of class and into the hallway, and they don’t even say anything, they just know and they lean in and fireworks fucking explode and the whole class is watching from the window and applauding like nobody’s business and the girls are too focused on each other to notice.

that night riley and maya are being extra gay at the table; staring at each other, smiling, cheek kisses, hand holding and katy & shawn are there and corpanga are so fucking happy and auggie’s so proud of himself and it’s just such a moment 

then there obviously has to be a bay window scene where they reference the “my extraordinary relationship” trope

and now i’m crying FUCK 

anonymous asked:

i can't stop thinking about derek as mike hELP ME - my-nameless-bliss(.)tumblr(.)com/post/146558496646

HA I FINALLY FINISHED THIS! Sorry for taking so long… Anyways, I hope you like it! (Also, please do yourself a favor and read that article, it’s A+)

TW: Homophobia (but not really) and extreme jealousy/possessiveness 

Title: Plot Twist

Derek likes to think of himself as an accepting person. Laura came out as asexual and biromantic a couple of years ago and he doesn’t have any problem with that. In fact, he thinks it’s wonderful that she knows who and what she likes.

Plus, one of his best friends is Danny – who’s known as the resident gay guy on campus, even though he’s definitely not the only one. So yeah, Derek likes to think he’s accepting.

That doesn’t explain why seeing Stiles kiss another guy bothers him so much.

for the better

read it on Ao3 (part of the Zimbits Airport AU-verse) (I would recommend reading this on Ao3, actually, because of the formatting, but it’s here too for convenience) (also let me know if the link doesn’t work? bc i’m not 100% sure about it)

Jack’s been planning this day for a long time now. He even made a Twitter account for it, two months ago, and tweeted occasionally to build up a following (it was easier once he got that little check mark thing next to his handle). He has a few thousand followers, which is enough to get the message out, and he even has his tweet drafted.

The first draft of it was ‘hello everyone, I just wanted you to know that I am bisexual.’ Tater had taken one look at that and vetoed it. With every extra revision Jack suggested (adding an exclamation point, saying ‘you all’ instead of ‘you,’ et cetera, et cetera, et cetera), Tater had still shaken his head. So Jack took it to Georgia.

“I mean… it’s okay,” George had said, furrowing her brow at the screen. “It’s a little terse, though.”

“But I don’t need to say anything else to get the point across, do I?”

“Well, no. But it’s still very detached.”

Still, after a lot of reworking (and, okay, George does scrap that entire thing and make him start from scratch), they come up with something acceptable. Something that Jack might even say is good.

And then it all gets ruined at the last moment.

To summarize

  • Family customization is important for role-playing purposes and for representation. Sexuality is a big part of someone’s identity, as is ones family. There is a possibility that the family, perhaps the baby, will play a part later in the game as well. Especially considering how much we can customize them and because they’ve put in effort to make a baby generate based on the family’s look. 
  • People (me included) might not want to play a closeted non-straight with a “false” family because of a homophobic 50′s culture. Fallout is based on the aesthetics of a retro vision of what the future would look like, not the actual 50′s. So far nothing we’ve seen of the pre-war world indicates prevalent homophobia or racism (except against Chinese-Americans, mostly because of the wars and tension between the US and China). And do remember that Fallout’s apocalypse happens in 2077.  Do not mistake Fallout’s pre-war world for our world’s 50′s!
  • Considering the character customization has a sex button, there is a large possibility we might be able to create same sex families. But there is also the possibility it’s a button to switch between the spouses. 

Now I’m gonna answer a couple of asks about this shit here, then I’m done talking about it until something new pops up. Also, I see more asks about people complaining about other people wanting same sex option than I see actual people talking about wanting a same sex couple. Not all have been published, since there have been a lot of repeat arguments made.

You Dislike Each Other And You Break Down In Front Of Him (5sos 4/4)

Request: Can you do one where you’re the friend of three of the guys but one of them has always been kind of a dick to you and you’re going through something right now (eating disorder, sexuality, parent troubles, death of a friend) and you finally break bc they didn’t know and are being such a dick? They can end up together or as friends it’s your call! (Preferably as friends) :) IM SORRY IF THIS IS CONFUSING

I sure can!

———————————————————

Ashton:

You sit with your four friends - well, should you say your three friends? And then one that you put up with for the sake of the others? Yeah, that sounds about right.

Anyway, you’re all huddled around the television watching a crappy film on television, eating a pizza each. You’d ordered out so you only asked for an eight inch, much to the surprise to everyone else.

“Hey look, it’s (Y/N)!” Ashton calls, giggling away to himself.

He’s referring to the massive ogre thing. An ogre? Is it an ogre? Well, whatever it is, it’s not very attractive and you’re offended that he would say such a thing. Though it doesn’t surprise you. It’s a typical Ashton thing to say. The two of you don’t get along. You can’t quite work out why. You’ve been friends with Calum, Luke and Michael for a while ‘cause you all went to the same school. Whereas, Ashton attended a different school and is in a band with the other boys. When you were first introduced, you were really polite to him. You smiled, and welcomed him into the friendship group. He was okay to begin with, but then he just started being a dick to you. You don’t understand the sudden change. But you just have to get on with it.

You grin, “Please, you’re just jealous that I’m the hottest ogre in the land”

Ashton tuts, “You’d be better if you were the right kind of weight”

You freeze. The boys turn to him, and Michael hits him with a cushion, “Cold, Ash, cold”

You take the plate of pizza and hand it to Michael, “You wanna finish it off?”

“(Y/N) it’s your pizza, don’t you want it?” He asks

You shake your head, “No, not really hungry. Anyway, I need the bathroom”

The truth is, that comment about your weight wouldn’t have heard you this much if it had been made a year ago. The reason it hurts so much now is that you’re struggling with your weight. You look in the mirror everyday and all you see is fat. You always told yourself you were being stupid but now that Ash has mentioned it, he’s kind of confirmed it for you.

When you close the bathroom door behind you, you kneel down in front of the toilet and stick two fingers down your throat.

Once you’re finished, you freshen up slightly. And then there’s a knock at the door.

“(Y/N)?” Ashton asks

You roll your eyes, “What?”

“I just want to know if you’re okay? You’ve been up here for a while” He asks

You tut, “As if you’d care”

“(Y/N) I just want to know if you’re okay. I’m sorry for what I said back there, I didn’t think…I just thought I was being funny” He says

You fling open the door, “You think making fun of someone’s weight when they’ve got an eating disorder is funny?”

His eyes widen, “What? What do you mean you’ve got an eating disorder?”

You begin to close the door, “Nothing! I shouldn’t have said anything”

He pushes the door open before you can fully close it, he walks in and closes the door behind him.

“(Y/N), if I had known, I wouldn’t have said anything. There is nothing wrong with your weight. Nor your body. Nor anything. I’m just a dick. I guess I thought that because you always answered back with some sly remark, then you weren’t easily offended. I’m sorry, I guess I was wrong. I should never have said anything….so how long have you been, you know?” He rambles

“A few months” You state

Ashton bites his lips, before bringing you into a hug. Ashton’s arms are as strong as they look. He holds you gently, as if not to break you.

“I’m so, so sorry. I’m going to help you. Everything’s going to be okay, I promise. I can’t believe I’ve been so stupid. I’m sorry”

Michael:

“Have you ever had a boyfriend?” Michael asks you

You’re playing truth or dare with him, Ashton, Luke and Calum. Ash, Luke and Cal all know that you haven’t. Not really.

“I don’t see why that’s any of your business” You state

“Oh come on (Y/N), it’s truth or dare and you picked truth. You have to answer it” Michael tuts

“No, I don’t. I don’t have to answer anything I don’t feel comfortable with. And this is something I’m not comfortable answering” You argue

“Come on, you’re no fucking fun. Just answer the fucking question!” He shouts

“Michael, stop yelling at her!” Ashton calls

You and Michael cannot stand each other. You’ve never got along and you doubt you ever will. It’s only because you were never that popular at school; you were the intelligent one who no-one really liked that much. How you even began hanging out with Luke, Cal and Ash, you’ll never know.

“It’s truth or dare, she has to answer it” Michael insists

“NO!” You scream, and everyone turns to you “Is that what you wanted to here? No, I haven’t had a boyfriend. And quite frankly, I don’t know whether it’s a boyfriend or a girlfriend I want.”

Everyone just kinda glares at you…

“I’m sorry, I can’t do this anymore. I’m just gonna go” You say, tearing up.

You storm out of the house and hurry along the pavement, heading towards home.

“(Y/N)!” You hear one of the boys shout from behind you.

It’s Michael. You ignore him, and keep walking, speeding up.

You hear two feet running up behind you and he grabs your wrist, causing you to stop walking and turn around, “WHAT?”

“What could you possibly want now? You got the answer to your question, and a little bit more. But what do you want to know now? How I’ve never even kissed a boy? Or a girl for that instance? Hmm, what is it? What do you want?” You scream

Michael looks at you stunned, and maybes a little confused.

“No…no…I wanted to apologise. I shouldn’t have pushed you to answer that question. It was insensitive, and I didn’t realise what else was behind it. I should have listened to you when you said you weren’t comfortable. Fuck (Y/N), I just want to get to know you better. The others seem to know a lot about you, and I know nothing. I couldn’t care less if you’ve never dated a boy, kissed a boy, fucked a boy. I don’t care whether it’s boys you’re into, if it’s girls you’re into, or even if it’s both. I don’t mind if you’re lesbian, straight, bi, pan…hell I really don’t care. You’re you and I

like that you’re you and I never want you to be anyone but you. You’re amazing. You’re incredible. You’re beautiful.” He says

You wipe away the tears from your eyes, “Well thanks.”

He looks you in the eyes, “I’m so sorry (Y/N). I’m sorry that I’m such a dick. I’m sorry. So, so sorry”

You shake your head, “It’s okay, it’s okay.”

For whatever reason, you hug him. He hugs you back. “Friends?” you say into his ear.

“Friends” He replies

When he pulls away, he smirks, “So…you’ve never been kissed?”

You roll your eyes, “No I haven’t”

“Well, you know, if you want…” He begins

“No, Clifford!”

Calum:

“Is Ashton in?” You ask as Calum stands at the door.

“No” he tuts

“Well what are you doing here? Do you just let yourself into Ashton’s place when he’s not in?” You question

He hesitates “…yes”

You sigh, “Calum. I need Ashton. I need to talk to him. I know he’s in there. Why are you being such a dick?”

He rolls his eyes, “He’s seriously not here. He’s gone to the shops to get some snacks and stuff. I just stayed here.”

“Well can I come in and wait for him to get back then?” You suggest

He sighs, “Sure. Whatever.”

You sit on the sofa, awkwardly waiting for Ashton to return. You knew you should have gone to Luke’s. But what you need to tell Ash is something only he’s aware of. If you’d gone to Luke’s, or even Michael’s, you’d have to go over the full story again.

“So, are you and Ash like a couple or something?” Calum asks

“No. Why?” You reply

You and Calum don’t get along. You try and get along for the other three, but you just don’t get each other.

He shrugs, “Well you’re the closest out of everyone”

“Doesn’t mean we’re dating” You snap

Calum shakes his head, “Sorry for asking, damn”

“What’s your problem?” You half yell

Calum furrows his eyebrows, “I literally haven’t said anything to you”

“You don’t have to. I just know that you’re thinking something shit about me” You answer

He looks at you, “And that’s a good enough reason for you to shout at me? Because I think things about you?”

“Urgh, stop making me out to be the bad guy here!” You shout

“(Y/N) I’m not! You’re the one making me out to be the bad guy” He shouts back

You roll your eyes, “You always have to be the centre of attention”

“Have your parents ever taught you that picking fights is something a bitch would do?” He retorts “Out of everything I had you down as, a bitch was not one of them”

You freeze. You don’t care that he called you a bitch. You care that he’s talking about your parents. You came to tell Ashton that your parents had told you they’re splitting up and that you’re upset about it. You know Ashton would understand.

“Whatever you do, do NOT bring my parents into this” You state

He rolls his eyes, “There’s no need to get protective of them, god!”

“Calum, you don’t know what’s going on in my life right now so don’t tell me what to do!”

“Oh and what could possibly be going on in your life that’s so bad? You got your period?” He snaps

“No actually. My parents have just told me that they’re getting a divorce but yeah, the only reason a girl could ever be in a piss mood is if she’s on her period” You say, your voice cracking.

“Your parents are splitting up?” He questions

“It doesn’t matter. You wouldn’t understand, anyway. That’s why I came for Ash” You shrug

He stands up and makes his way to the seat next to you. He sits down, and puts his arm around your shoulder, “(Y/N), that’s terrible. I didn’t know. I musn’t have helped. I always snap at you and whatever. I’m so sorry. Listen, I’m here for you. Seriously. I am. If you need to talk. Text me. Call me. Come round to mine. You know where I live right?”

You nod, “Thanks Calum….I’m sorry for picking a fight with you”

He shakes his head, “Don’t worry about it.”

Luke:

You’re sitting on your bed, looking through the photo album you made of you and your friend, when your mobile rings. You’re surprised to find that it’s Luke.

“Hey Luke” You say, trying to be nice.

“Yeah, hi.” He mumbles

You and Luke don’t get along, the two of you have made that pretty clear. There’s no explanation for it, you just don’t like each other.

“The boys wanted me to call and ask if you wanted to come over” He says

“Oh” You say “I don’t know Luke, I’m not in the mood for it today”

He sighs through the phone, “Kay whatever. You can bring Charlotte with you if you want”

At the sound of her name, you instantly break down in tears.

“(Y/N)?” Luke asks

“(Y/N), why are you crying? Is it cause I Kay’d you?” He asks, annoyed

“(Y/N)?” He shouts

“SHE’S DEAD!” You shout back to him

“W-w-what?” He questions

“You heard what I said Luke. She’s dead.” You repeat

“What? How? When?” He says all at once

“Yesterday. She got in a car accident with her parents. They survived, she didn’t.” You explain

“I’m…I’m…I’m sorry (Y/N). I didn’t know. Honestly….I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to uhh” He replies awkwardly

“It’s okay Luke, you didn’t know” You sniff

“I’m coming over” He states

“What? No. You don’t have to. Stay with the boys” You tell him

“No. I’m coming over. You need a friend and I’d like to be here for you” He insists

“But…why? You hate me” You ask

“Well you don’t particularly like me either…” he states “But what you’re going through, it’s not nice and I don’t want you to be alone and upset and everything. I don’t know I’ll bring some snacks and we can watch some dvd’s you know? I don’t know but I just want to make sure you’re coping. Would that be okay?”

You breath a sigh of relief, “Luke that would be lovely. See you in a few?”

“See you in a few”

#bitalks: Bisexual Representation

So this week’s bitalks topic is bisexual representation in the media.  I know I want to write words about this, but I’m really not sure what exactly, so please enjoy the following word vomit that I’m not really planning on editing.

First of all, if you’re reading this and not aware, I’m bisexual, which is still kinda new to write.  I think that bisexuality (along with pansexuality) is probably one of the easiest identities to “erase” or ignore because unless you have someone who is both bisexual and polyamorous, they are going to only have one romantic relationship at a time, which leads most people to slot them into “straight” or “gay,” because those are all that exist, right?  Thing is, this isn’t really cool.  I am currently starting to date a boy (I don’t want to say I’m dating him, we’ve had three dates), but I’m not suddenly “gay” and I know that people seeing us in public will assume that.  This doesn’t just cover characters in a show, but real people too; when I heard that Angelina Jolie identifies as bisexual, I was stunned, because I’d never once heard that before.  She’s always been with Brad, I assumed she was straight because I was never taught you could be anything else for the longest time.

Bisexual representation is important because being bisexual is hard.  I’m having to constantly inform people that yes I have a boy, no I’m not gay, I’m bisexual.  I’ve been worried to correct potential partners because I’m concerned their opinions of me will change.  There are men and women who won’t date me simply because I’m bisexual.  Bisexuals are often portrayed as constantly horny, or greedy, or unfaithful; there are 15 bisexuality-specific tropes listed on TVTropes, including “Depraved Bisexual,” “Experimented In College” and “No Bisexuals,” none of which are positive tropes.  If there was more prevalent bisexual representation, I wouldn’t have to constantly explain to people how liking boys and girls works, I wouldn’t have to wonder if my parents know what bisexuality is, and I wouldn’t have to get pissed off about queerbaiting whoops nope that’s probably still gonna happen.

I want more bisexual and pansexual representation.  Cosima Niehaus on Orphan Black is fantastic.  Jack Harkness is wonderful, but these are the ONLY two canonically bi/pan characters I can come up with off the top of my head (if you have more recommendations please send them my way thanks).  I can’t recall reading a book with a character who was confirmed as bi/pan.  I’m not asking for much, I’m not greedy, I promise.  Just…maybe we can explore the idea that sexuality is a spectrum?  Maybe?

(other fun fact as I type this into Firefox; according to its dictionary, pansexual and polyamorous aren’t words, that’s messed up come on)
