I don’t think ‘want’ is the word. I guess I gotta try. My father told me once, he said, “If you see something wrong happening in the world, you can either do nothing, or you can do something. And I already tried nothing.
And I had to upload all images really quickly, and everything is set for default prices/sizes etc for now. If you see anything is wrong or want me to change something please let me know! :D Or if I just stupidly done something idiotic.. XD
most cis people i’ve talked with are like… unsettled by the existence of trans men.
I think it’s because in some way they think they can spot a trans woman on sight - after all, the only portrayals they know are either played by cis men or by overfeminine cis women ; they can’t even fathom not knowing that a trans woman is trans. This way, they can live knowing what’s in every stranger’s pants.
but they haven’t heard of trans men, for most of them. they see my stubble and my deep voice and the idea that i have a vagina is like… extremely wrong. because they can’t tell me apart from a cis man. bc it’s way easier for a trans man to cispass socially, they are scared.
they ask me if really, i live as a man in my daily life. if really, people call me “sir” in the streets. and you can see it upsets them. you can see that something is wrong. that they start realizing that some women they know may be trans, some men they know may be trans, and they have no way of knowing.
and like, the look on their faces when i tell them i’m trans is - the media didn’t prepare me for this. and it touches something very deep ingrained, and it must be real fucking upsetting.
Lance jerks awake with a loud gasp, chest rising and falling in time with his rapid heart as the lingering vision of his mother fades away against reality. When his surroundings steady within his wavering vision, his heart plummets in his chest. He’s not home. He’s in space, acting as a defender of the universe.
But, he thinks as he presses a shaking palm to his cheek. He can still feel the faint touch of his mother’s gentle hand caressing his burning cheek. There’s a slight tingle, and his lips curl up into a soft smile that contrasts his eyes brimming with tears.
Very slowly, Lance shifts his gaze to the right until his eyes fall onto Keith sitting in a chair placed beside his bed. Lance blinks tiredly, again again, and with each fall and rise of his drooping lids, his surroundings shimmer and sway until they are morphing into a small bedroom holding a twin-size bed and a bunk bed. One glance up, and Lance can make out the glow in the dark star stickers littering his ceiling.
“Estoy en casa,” he rasps out, blood-shot eyes lazily moving about the room.
“Lance, what? Did you just speak Spanish?”
Lance can see that Keith is still there, a sore thumb sticking out in familiar surroundings. He’s not entirely sure why Keith is here, but who cares? He motions weakly with one hand.
“¿No ves, Keith? Estoy en casa.”
Keith’s lips part slightly in silent surprise. His brows come together in a wavering crease of concern as he takes in Lance’s dull, almost lifeless, eyes looking about in a numbing, distant stare. Before he knows what’s happening, he’s standing on shaking legs and stumbling out the door to get help.
The other paladins stare down at Lance with varying looks of concern before Shiro carefully takes a spot on the edge of the bed.
“Lance, buddy? How are you feeling?”
Lance blinks slowly at Shiro’s words, and he shrugs. “No tan bien.”
“See? He’s only speaking Spanish!”
Frowning, Lance turns toward Keith, and he tilts his head slightly in question. But, when a cool hand cups his cheek, he moves along with the gentle guidance until he’s once again facing Shiro.
Shiro can already feel the heat of the fever against his finger tips, but he slides a palm to the brunet’s forehead to confirm the worst. An intense heat coats his palm in an instant, and he pulls his hand away with a low hiss.
“He’s on fire,” he murmurs under his breath, and Lance shakes his head rapidly in reply while wrapping his arms around himself.
“No, tengo frío.”
“What do we do?” Pidge asks, heart sinking in her chest as she watches the scene unfold about her worried eyes.
“We need to get his fever down somehow.” Shiro answers, eyes never leaving the flushed yet worryingly pale face sitting before him.
“I feel like I’ve been run over. Or stabbed. Repeatedly.”
Keith shoots forward in his chair just as Hunk all but dives onto the end of the bed, and Lance jumps in surprise, body going almost rigid, a clear contrast to his racing heart.
“You’re speaking English…” Keith says as he moves his face impossibly close to Lance’s, narrow eyes taking in every single portion of the brunet’s face.
“Yes?” Lance asks, rough voice sliding upwards slightly in pitch.
Hunk is off the bed and out the door in seconds, and Keith and Lance can hear his faint shouts from Lance’s room.
When you cheat on someone you ruin their outlook on more than just you; you ruin their outlook on themselves, relationships, and trust.
After a person is cheated on, they will forever ask themselves why they weren’t good enough. What did they do wrong.? Would you have stayed faithful if they had done or said something differently.? If they had talked more or talked less.? Spent a little more time trying to look good for you.? Spent more time trying to be the person you wanted.? They will over analyze every thing they ever did or said. They will start to question every action they made, trying to figure out what they did to make you cheat.
They will forever have issues trusting in relationships. When they meet someone new, they will be reluctant to let that person in, in fear of getting hurt again. They will question that persons every move and intention. They will have problems trusting a person who has done nothing to not be trusted. They bring the hurt of what you did to them into a new relationship.
They’re not doing this intentionally; in their mind, they are just trying to protect their heart. They are just trying to avoid having to feel the way you made them feel. Because they don’t want to ever feel the heart wrenching, stomach turning, ache of feeling inadequate, not good enough, like something was wrong with them.
You see, when you cheat on someone, you are changing their every thought process. You are making them question every aspect of their being. You take a vital piece of them. You change them forever.
What I enjoy while reading the Haikyu!! manga is to see Hinatas and Yamaguchis friendship bloom.

HAHAHA. it’s funny how before we even knew how important we were going to be to each other, something in us knew and something in us will always know. i love how fiercely you defend your opinion, i love your strength, your bold independence, and your desire to live life fully. i love that we crack up at each other’s jokes even when nobody else gets them- and i love those moments where we get caught up in talking about a band or a book and we get lost in the conversation like two normal girls in high school that aren’t about to go do something ridiculous like go to an awards show. i will always be there for you when you need someone to vent to, when you want to talk about the overwhelming underwhelmingness of boys that break our hearts or the overwhelming overwhelmingness of when a kiss leaves your head reeling, when i back you up and you need someone to stick up for you, or when you just need someone to understand- we’ve done that for each other in the last 3 years and we will do that for each other forevermore. i love you so much !!!! happy 19th lern jergi!!!!! camila“ - Camila on Lauren
Let me explain what everything is wrong with this one sentence.
First of all, no characters except the characters that actually are involved in this relationship have something to do with the relationship itself. Is the relationship unhealthily from both parts there’s no other character who can fix this.
Another thing is, other characters shouldn’t be used as arguments in serious discussions, especially when they have nothing to do with it. Have fun with your headcanons but when you want to argue in a way that someone can take it seriously keep them out.
Finally, a character can’t ship anything except he says it. When he don’t say anything, then it’s fanon and should be keep fanon. Having facts and headcanons mixed up is a dangerous thing to do. When it comes to ss it mostly ends up in glorifying abusive elements that shouldn’t be glorified (but that’s nothing new….)
But you know what? A character can actually support another relationship with his actions and words. And that’s what Itachi did.
Let’s make it clear. Itachi wanted Sasuke happy. He was never pro-”insert-shipname-here”, he was only pro-”Sasukes-happiness”.
“But Itachi never said anything about another person who could make Sasuke happy!!!”
DISCLAIMER: Liespotting can be a bit imprecise. This post is based on research that scientists have gathered about how to tell if someone is being dishonest. PLEASE take this with a grain of salt, as even scientists tend to disagree on the signs at times. I tried to take the most agreed upon signs and analyze the first 1 minute and 30 seconds of the Cambridge Q&A.
Okay let’s begin.
1) FIND THE BASELINE
Before you can tell if someone’s lying, you need to know how they usually behave/tell the story. People usually deviate from their baseline behavior/story when they say something fishy. The baseline for us is Jan 31st when Moffat talks about season 4&5.
January 31st, 2014 on planning season 4&5:
MOFFAT: Yes, we do. It’s really [Season] 4 that we’ve got, but it throws forward to a terrifying [Season] 5. It wasn’t a planned thing. We had just got out of the rain and because we don’t have the lovely big trailers that Benedict and Martin have, we had to go sit in the accountancy department and we just talked about what we could do. We just started having what I think are the best (set) of ideas we’ve ever had. I think (they)’re just wild. And when I say ideas, it’s what stories we’ll tackle, what big twists there will be, what gut punches there will be, and what surprises there will be, and I think it’s really exciting.
This behavior then deviates at theCambridge Q&A on January 20th, 2017:
Steven: Um, we-ahk- we’re not lying. We- we don’t know! We haven’t even sat down and, uh, uh, done any complicated graphs or sums yet. Uh, so, we really, really don’t know. Mark: We are sitting down now.
Steven originally says that they have planned season 4 and how it relates to the storyline of season 5. Then, Steven takes it back and says they haven’t even really thought about it. Then, Mark and Steven even discredit each other by saying that they haven’t sat down and are currently sitting down to discuss it.
Fibs make you fidgety. Liars will scratch their noses, rub their necks, pick imaginary lint from their shirts,
or repeatedly shift their position.
position 1 (steven’s legs crossed towards mark, both of marks legs on the ground)
position 2 (both of steven’s legs on the ground, mark’s legs crossed towards steven)
position 3 (both have crossed their legs towards each other)
position 4 (back to the original position) …all in under a minute
Liars may also maintain eye contact too well or consistently look away.
This is a very difficult thing to actually pinpoint. In my opinion, Moffat maintains too much eye contact while discussing season 5, Gatiss looks away far too often. I’ll leave this one up to your judgement.
Liars also wring their hands due to feelings of guilt.
and maintain closed off body language.
(mark’s crossed legs, steven’s hand covering his face, mark’s hands over his crotch, both of their palms are facing down, their bodies are facing each other rather than the interviewer)
Mark seems to be the worse liar in this case. When Steven starts to talk about not knowing anything about season 5, he immediately braces himself and death grips the armchair (better seen in video). Then, strokes his leg from thigh to knee with his palm down which signifies discomfort.
3) TOO MUCH DETAIL and QUALIFIERS
Lies make us chatty. A liar may talk a lot to win you over, but most of those extra sentences are fluff.
See: the immediate evasion by talking about Dr. Who; the repetition of “we don’t know” (also seen as removal of individual responsibility), “who knows”, etc; and then the quick subject change to casting martin and ben despite no one asking them.
AKA They evade the question by adding a lot of details that don’t matter.
MOFFAT: But what you have to do is put out huge amounts of disinformation to try to bury all the secrets
Phrases like “The truth is” or “To be honest” can mean that even if they aren’t lying to you now, they were earlier.
see 1:15-1:17 of the video where they both say “honestly” right after one another despite NO ONE contradicting or fighting them.
4) Finally, there is the Moffat admitting to his tendency to lie
Moffat: “In fairness, I say I’m going to lie, then I lie, and people still get mad at me” (Comic Con 2016 Panel)
Individually, these signs may mean nothing.
All of these signs in under 1:30? Plus their tendency to lie about the show?
I think it’s safe to say that something is UP.
[Please feel free to comment and critique if you see something that is wrong as I am by no means an expert. :) ]
1. Instinct will save your patient, it will save your coworker’s you’re covering for, and it will save your own ass.
2. If a doctor asks you to do something and it feels wrong, it probably is. See #1.
3. Patients lie, families lie, everybody lies.. sniff out the truth with your detective nose.
4. If you even mention you hate taking one type of case to a charge nurse you don’t get along with, guaranteed you will see nothing but those cases once word gets out.
5. Some of the strongest nurses, the people you would inherently trust with your patients, your family, your loved ones, yourself with - aren’t preceptors, they aren’t charge nurses, they are likely the neighboring nurse who never gets the unit award, but everyone wishes silently would be the nurse if they were to ever look up frightened from a stretcher.
6. Half the shit you do in Nursing school isn’t reality, and you won’t always have time to do it in the same way; but that doesn’t mean you’re compromising care, quality or integrity of your profession. It just means you’ve found a more proficient, effective, and just as safe way to do it that textbook authors won’t admit to.
7. You do actually have a choice to speak up when someone is intensely rude to you, despite what surveyors, management, and all the circus of politically correct people will tell you - there isn’t a law or standard of practice in nursing that says take all the crap from people and stay silent. Setting boundaries with patients, families, and coworkers doesn’t mean you’re disrespectful, it means you respect yourself and your place in this profession.
8. Protect your patients, but protect your license just as hard - you can’t protect anyone if you’re not protecting yourself.
9. Nursing management often complains the loudest about things they’ve forgotten how to do themselves.
10. You can make mistakes, have a snitty day, be off point, miss all the IV’s, miss a subtle sign in diagnosis, and wish you’d chosen another career - but it doesn’t take away from the days that you’re the one to catch someone’s error before it harms their patient, or their license, it doesn’t take away from the days when you sort of think in the back of your mind, I simply love what I do, it doesn’t take away from the all the times you snagged an impossible IV, but no one really needed to see it for it to feel good, it doesn’t take away from all the moments you caught subtleties that made you remember why nursing is a vital piece of hospital function, and it doesn’t take away from the moments you reminded yourself that hey, it’s a good thing to stick with this profession that you never quite know what to expect of next.
