in some shitty way i mean

I don't even follow your shitty blog but that post somehow made its way to my tl. Nobody's even remotely mad over here trust me. Also find it hilarious how you only acknowledged hxh because even though it's good it's still not on the level of the other 2. And of course you would stan FMA for those reasons lol I can already tell you're some feminist who hates men. And how is sasunaru not a yaoi ship? Do you even know what it means? Doubt it. Just go back to being a disappointment to your parents

Yaoi consists of fetishizing and sexualizing male/male relationships and enforcing seme and uke stereotypes, which I’m completely against. It also spreads incorrect (and potentially dangerous should anyone uneducated decide to follow it) information about sex. It creates a false image for the LGBT+ community that we’ve been fighting against for years and doesn’t help with normalizing our relationships. I’m all for accurate LGBT+ representation in the media but yaoi definitely isn’t it. Sasuke and Naruto are canonly soulmates, together they broke a cycle of hatred no one before them had been able to, they went so far for each other, even risking their lives and goals for one another. “My one and only” “I will shoulder your hatred and die with you.” “I’m really glad I met you.”. It’s a ship that consists of two people who love and understand one another like no one else, who got past their hardships and learned to be at peace. It’s not Yaoi just because it insists of two men. And yes, I only mentioned HxH because it’s the only one I’ve watched from the ones you mentioned. I’ve seen bits and pieces of one piece and I didn’t like it much. Just because YOU think FMA Brotherhood isn’t good (which, I’m afraid to tell you it’s one of the highest rated animes of all time boo) doesn’t mean we all do. And lol, yes, me.. who has dated men, hates men. Sure fam. I don’t hate men, I hate ignorant people like you. Now go be petty somewhere else.

Because some asked why I needed Truthwitch to break out...

Some people have asked me what I meant by a statement in my postmortem – about WHY I needed Truthwitch to break out (because if it didn’t, my career was over). I’m not sure how in-depth I’ve been in my newsletter, so here’s an answer for you:

Basically, my first series tanked. I mean…tanked. We’re talking, Truthwitch sold more copies in its first two weeks than the entire SS&D series COMBINED.

Bad sales hurt an author – you’re way better off as an untested debut than an author with shitty sales. So I was at a crossroads in my career, where the plan was to change my name. That way, I could be a “debut” again. (Sadly, this happens a LOT in the industry. Which is why please do not pirate our books!)

But then Tor decided to take a chance on me. Because they’re a small (and amazing) house, they have more room to take on projects that they’re passionate about (instead of just commercially successful). HOWEVER, if Truthwitch didn’t sell well…. Then yeah. That was it. “Susan Dennard” would be dead, and I’d have to reinvent/start over my career.

There’s no shame in that. I was totally willing to reinvent! The problem was that I had this great audience for my writing advice – thousands upon thousands of people who were coming back for my blog and newsletter. Yet none of them were buying my books. Which is fine – I don’t give free writing help to sell copies. I do it because I love doing it.

BUT…if I reinvented myself, I would lose what little crossover I had between writing-advice-fans and book-readers – not to mention the handful of amazing fans who did like the SS&D trilogy (I will never ever forget my wonderful Misfits!).

So…I needed + desperately wanted Truthwitch to sell well. I wanted Tor to be happy. I wanted to keep my name. That led to me going “all in” on self-promo.

Full disclosure: I allocated $15,000 of my advance to promote Truthwitch. (Which, in case you’re wondering, was most of the advance.) I ended up going over that amount…by a lot. Costs ranged from travel to important events (this was really where the bulk got eaten up!) to running/maintaining my street team (swag, postage, hiring an assistant to help me keep it going) to learning how to + making my own book trailer.***

And like…I honestly don’t even know what kind of TIME I spent promoting. It was a lot more than I thought it would be. Literally most of 2015.

But…it paid off, right? At least in terms of “success.” I’m a New York Times Bestseller now!!

That said, I haven’t earned back the money I spent yet (“bestseller” doesn’t automatically mean “rich”), and I will never get back the time I spent. Plus, the nightmare that was 2016 as I tried to rush-create Windwitch

It begs the question: were the costs worth the rewards? I don’t know. I think so since, hopefully, the rewards will continue to pay forward for a long time – and my career is definitely growing!

Best of all, though, I CAN KEEP MY NAME. Susan Dennard. C’est moi pour toujours. ❤️

Edit:

I want to add two more things – because this post has opened up a lot of conversations I wasn’t expecting to have (but welcome!!).

First: I cannot emphasize enough just how important LUCK is in this equation. On top of the time, money, publisher-partnership, and salty desperation that I poured into Truthwitch, I ALSO GOT LUCKY. I had the Right Book at the Right Moment with the Right Cover in the Right Genre coming out in the Right Month.

A publisher can pour all the money in the world into a book, but nothing will make readers buy it. There is no predicting trends.

So a lot of the success of Truthwitch (which is still pretty small, relatively speaking. I’m not a Big Author by any means!!) boils down to that intangible, finicky sprite known as Lady Luck.

Second: This is just ROUND ONE of “reinvention.” I have no illusions or expectations that my success will remain. The Witchlands series has already exceeded my wildest hopes, but no author stays “on top” forever. It’s a constant up and down, and frankly, we’re all just really lucky to even be able to share our words in the first place.

Sure, I’d love to be successful forever, but it’s not my primary dream – and definitely not my expectation. Realism is key to longevity in this industry, and more than that: gratitude.

So on that note: thanks for reading, thanks for sharing, and thanks for being the reason I keep writing.


***Note: I need to also mention that, once it was clear my own self-promotion was starting to pick up momentum, Tor really stepped in and helped me. This was not a solo journey, and it NEVER is. I had/have an amazing team, and we’ve forged a real partnership while getting the Witchlands into readers’ hands.

Every izuocha scene in bnha and other izuocha stuff

Despite this fanbase being so small, they actually have a lot of scenes together… so lemme start from the very beginning

Uraraka stopping Izuku from falling from falling on his face as well as saving from 5-6 seconds of utter embarassment.

Look at how happy he is to talk to a girl, and a cute girl for that matter, and it just so happens that she is actually the first girl Izuku has actually ‘talked’ to. It’s not like Izuku has never spoken to a female in his life before (I mean he has his mom, and I’m sure he’s talked to other girls in his past classes but you get the point), but this was like the first time according to Izuku that he had a real conversation with a girl.

Izuku is a hella nervous for the entrance exam and he sees Uraraka as a source of comfort, well at least someone to talk to for him calm him down a little before Iida stopped him. This isn’t like an actual romantic moment or whatever so don’t hate me for this please, but at least it’s something right?

Izuku saving Uraraka from the robot, this scene is what triggered their friendship. He could have chosen to run away like everyone else did, he had zero points but he still chose to sacrifice his chances of getting into U.A just to save her.

Uraraka going out of her way to beg them to let Izuku at least have some of her points, no normal person would do that… no one would go out of their way to make sure a complete stranger passed, I mean it’s an exam so it’s every man for themselves. And look at how touched Izuku is here… with the kind of shitty people around him (bakugou, his middle school classmates, his middle school teacher, that doctor) he never would’ve imagined anyone going out of their way to do something like this for him. They actually both made an impact on each other after the entrance exam. And I know for a fact that people are gonna argue with this and say that she was just being nice and shit

You’re telling me that you’re just gonna ignore this?!!! He indirectly said this girl was attractive.

Here he is acting like a normal socially awkward teenager who’s too shy to talk to a cute girl, and we’re just gonna ignore this??? I mean he can’t even look her in the eye, doesn’t that mean something?

Uraraka cheering for Izuku in the backgorund…

Uraraka being worried about Izuku’s swollen finger…

Izuku finds Uraraka to be very attractive again, twice.

Izuku blushing like crazy because he’s on the same team with a cute girl who just happens to be his first real friend, who’s a cute girl.

And this is probably the most important moment. Izuku easily accepted the new meaning that Uraraka gave to the the demeaning name Deku. We all know that it’s impossible to change the meaning of the word, especially a word that a lot of people already know the meaning of. I’m sure Izuku knew that. He probably would have accepted the name of it was someone else who changed the meaning but I don’t think he would’ve accepted it as quickly as he did for Uraraka, because it really touched him when she said that.

At first you’d think Izuku just felt super flattered for what Uraraka did to his name, but he took it to heart. Look at him confidently declaring the ‘new meaning of his name’, this surprised Uraraka too because… well she didn’t think he’d take it seriously.

Bakugou has zero chill XD

Izuku treasures the new meaning of his name so much that he even decides to make it his hero name, aka the hero name he’ll be using for the rest of his life, the name that he’ll forever be known as, and the name that sounds so demeaning… good luck with that my son…

Uraraka voting for Izuku knowing fully well that she could have voted for herself, but she voted for Izuku because of her admiration for him.

Uraraka being the only person to notice Izuku wasn’t in his costume. Izuku blushing, or getting excited… or blushing I can’t really explain what was going on here between these two but they were definitely having a moment.

Uraraka teaming up with Izuku when he was all alone which brought Izuku to tears. She teamed up with him because she’s most comfortable with him, they’re both really good friends, and because she admires him so much. Izuku is surprised too, because if she teamed up with anyone else it would give her a better chance for her to win. So once again, Izuku’s touched by Uraraka’s affection towards him.

Uraraka getting jealous of Hatsume because she’s getting all of Izuku’s attention. It’s not like Uraraka wanted to be the center of izuku’s llife 24/7 or anything but how can I say it… it’s kinda annoying to be really good friends with a boy and then some other girl just swoops in from nowhere and grabs his attention, I mean I know I’d feel a little ‘ish’ if that happened to me, because Uraraka was basically like the third wheel throughout the cavalry battle, and no one likes being a third wheel.

Uraraka admiring Izuku’s strategic mind once again, although she mainly said this because she was feeling uneasy.

Izuku knew Uraraka felt uneasy about going against Bakugou, so he went out of his way to make a plan for her to win. It’s funny because this is exactly how Izuku felt before his first fight with Bakugou, and Uraraka was the one comforting him and trying to help him feel better, and now the roles have been reversed. 

Although I’m glad Uraraka rejected his help, because it helped her realize that she couldn’t always rely on others for her success.

Izuku was rooting for her throughout the whole  Kacchako battle (and jeez, have I ever said how much I love Bakugou and Uraraka in this fight) and he was concerned for her safety. Izuku was Uraraka’s motivational drive here, her motivation to win.

Izuku was rooting for her before the match even started, sure he felt nervous but at least he didn’t immediately think he she was gonna lose like EVERYONE else did.

Izuku feeling bad for not being able to do anything for her…

He’s the only one that goes out of his way to check up on her, not even Iida, or Tsuyu.

Izuku saw right through Uraraka and she obviously knew she was lying about being totally fine. He felt guilty that he wasn’t able to do anything to help her win… even though there was really nothing he could do.

Uraraka’s helped Izuku out so many times, so the only thing he wants to do for her, what he needs to do for her is return the favor.

This was part was pretty sweet on both ends.. although I’m still not sure if Bakugou was pissed off at Izuku because he thought he let Uraraka use her quirk carelessly and throw him off guard (gonna wait for the anime to clear that up, afterall this episode is gonna air in about 2 weeks or so…) 

Anyway, Izuku is defending Uraraka here by saying she’s completely capable of devising strategic plans on her own.

Izuku getting super flustered after having a real conversation on a phone with a girl… who just happened to be Uraraka. Uraraka getting teased about being in love…. she could have called Iida too, but she decided to call Izuku instead.

Uraraka using Izuku as a source of motivation, again.

I think we’re all familiar with this scene. This is the moment Uraraka realized that she may in fact have a crush on Izuku.

And this is the moment when she sorta confirmed it, and she even said “probably”

This. This is just adorable.

My buddy @happycloude-91 pointed out in this post. This was probably one of the sweetest things Uraraka’s ever done. She did a little first-aid thing for Izuku to at least try and reduce the pain even though she knew it wouldn’t do much. She didn’t try and stop him and say “there’s no way I’ll let you go! Not with those injuries and blah blah blah”, because she understood the weight of the situtation and she understood Izuku’s feelings, plus Izuku probably wouldn’t have listened to her anyway.

Hell she even tore her shirt in half to help Izuku and seemed like it worked pretty well. We all know that Uraraka doesn’t have a lot of money, and she probably doesn’t have the best clothes either, yet she still sacrificed to help Izuku.

 Hatsume is a trigger to Uraraka’s jealousy, since it mostly pops up when she’s around. Her face here, she obviously doesn’t like what she’s seeing, because not only was Izuku almost explodo-killed, he came chest-to-chest with another girl!

Uraraka getting a little more jealous here because Hatsume’s getting Izuku’s attention, but she mostly feels like she’s getting left behind and she wants to walk side by side with Izuku.

Uraraka’s feelings for Izuku confirmed. The fact that she was thinking about the whole thing with Hatsume all day shows something.

Uraraka noticing and admiring Izuku’s strength again.These pages just say it all…

In the hero license exam, even though ‘Uraraka’ came out of nowhere with absolutely no plan at all, which could have led to her failing right there…

Izuku still jumped in to save her, jeopardizing his own chances of passing the exam.

adding this because the way he carried her was just…PERFECT.

This is probably one of my favorite scenes in this arc. Izuku knew Uraraka wasn’t that careless, he knew that she was much more stronger than that.

This line has a lot of depth in it guys. Izuku knew Uraraka was a lot smarter than to come out without any sort of plan.

Uraraka believing in Izuku’s strength.Uraraka sees Izuku as an image of victory, that’s why she always thinks about him when she’s in a pinch or is she wants to win (let that be a reminder for those who think she’s ‘obsessed’).

Izuku is to Uraraka what Kacchan is to him, an image of victory. (but we don’t go ahead and call Izuku obsessed whenever he thinks about Kacchan, which he does A LOT, do we???) It’s not that she’s obsessed with being like him but she has the same feelings that Izuku has for Kacchan.

Uraraka getting jealous again and contemplating her feelings.

Uraraka’s feelings getting in the way of her focus.

Chapter 109 says it all, at least in Uraraka’s side, she knows that she has feelings for Izuku. I’m not gonna say the word love because this is a fan translation so it’s not 100% accurate, also the word love is pretty strong in Japan, so I think Horikoshi must have used a… how can I say it? a less serious word in the second panel… I could be completely wrong though.

We know that she ‘shut down her feelings’ but that doesn’t mean they’re completely gone right?

Uraraka notices things about Izuku, and you can read all about that in my other buddy @rex101111‘s post here

Also, have I mentioned that they are ALWAYS together??!

And there are a lot more screencaps of them standing together and that includes the panels I used for this post too, but we know that I can’t fit all those screencaps in this post XD

The omake. I can already feel all of the kacchako shippers glaring daggers at me XD.

But anyway, many misinterpret this as a Kacchako scene… but it’s actually not. The reason is because, Uraraka came to talk to Bakugou about Izuku, not her, or heir fight, but Izuku. I know people are gonna be like “she sees through Bakugou!” or “Bakugou called her by her name!”, but let’s be honest, what Uraraka was saying here was: you either make up with Izuku or just stop being mean to him. Overall her primary concern was Izuku, because nobody likes to see their friend/love interest constantly get bullied right?

Another thing is the drama CD 7. The drama CD 7, the drama CD 7, the drama CD!!! I freaking love the drama CD 7, because it is a safe haven for us izuocha  shippers.

  • Izuku and Uraraka eating lunch together, Uraraka teasing Izuku for nerding about heroes… well she didn’t exactly tease him, she giggled and he blushed!
  • Izuku and Uraraka chatting near Izuku’s desk before Bakugou came and interrupted them XD
  • Izuku saved Uraraka from the sludge villain and he happened to hold hands with her for a very long time, and Bakugou himself had to point it out!
  • Izuku stuttering and blushing after he realized just how long he held Uraraka’s hand and how good it felt. Then he starts to remember how he had to do a folk dance with a guy when he was in middle school because there weren’t enough girls… and I love how my son is such a loveable nerd/dork omg XD
  • Uraraka mistook Izuku’s flustered face as some kind of adrenaline rush which was adorable.

There were other good scenes in the drama cd, but these are like the cutest ones, and mind you the drama CD was written by HORIKOSHI KOUHEI!

So it’s technically canon :p

I know I said that the wiki is about 98% accurate, but if people can believe Jirou is a lesbian from reading the wiki then I can believe this right? I know the love is one sided for now, but Izuku has shown a lot of signs in the beginning of the series, he obviously won’t show any now because of where the series is going… but it’s gonna come back…soon.

and one more thing…

WHY THE FUCK DOES THIS TAG EXIST???? THIS IS THE ONLY SHIP IN BNHA THAT I’VE SEEN WITH THIS TAG!

There are only like two posts under this tag and one of them just happens to be someone answering my ask, and if you’re wondering why I like that post if you ever see it, it’s because I like all posts that answer my asks just to let the person know that I’ve seen their answer.

But still it hurts to see this tag ya know?

Anyway @cake-ademia, @zakamore1, @rex101111, @hatefilledpoptarts, @eriboook and my other fellow izuocha shippers even though our fanbase is small, lets not forget the ship that’s CLOSEST to becoming CANON.

magic touch bond au
  • i keep thinking of a magical au where jack and bitty wake up
  • like after a party or something and they’re both in excruciating pain
  • and so all the guys are freaking out and they sort of piece together that jack and bitty are being affected by the same thing
  • so holster hauls a screaming bitty into jack’s room and dumps him on the bed next to jack and the moment they touch everything…stops

anonymous asked:

how do you think things would be different if Hillary was elected and Democrats were in power at least in the Senate?

Let’s see now. There’d be no Muslim ban. There’d still be protections in place for Trans kids in schools. There’d be no bullshit bills promoting discrimination in the name of “religious freedom”. People wouldn’t be scared about having their healthcare taken away. We wouldn’t be dismantling environmental regulations or threatening to get rid of the EPA and the NEA. There’d still be regulations in place that make sure Wall Street doesn’t tank the global economy AGAIN. We wouldn’t have a president who bitches about wasteful spending before pissing away millions bolstering his own private country club, or having a spouse living in a completely different city because she can’t stand to be around such an abusive individual. We wouldn’t have white nationalists working at the highest levels of our government. We wouldn’t have a White House that’s threatening war against news outlets because they report facts that are unflattering. We wouldn’t have a president who’s blatantly pissing on the Emoluments Clause or any of the other laws put in place to prevent conflicts of interest. TWe wouldn’t have an Executive Branch that could potentially have multiple illicit and/or treasonous ties to the Russian government. And before you start trying to argue that that last point is fake, realize that this could all be cleared up with an independent investigation, something that Clinton never fought during any of the multiple attempts they made to assassinate her career. But Trumpty Dumpty & Co don’t want that to happen for some reason (I wonder why). Oh, and let’s not forget that the Trump administration has more leaks than a ship made of Swiss cheese, because even their own staff are concerned at the colossally shitty job they’re doing. Shit, even Dubya, the man who lied to send us into Iraq, thinks this man is shady, AND THEYRE SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE SAME SIDE. Both of these men secured the Presidency after losing the popular vote, by the way.

But by all means, try to sit there and explain to me why Hillary and her people would have been “just as bad”. Go ahead. I fucking dare you.

She's Not You [j.j.]

Jughead x reader in which she acts completely normal.

~~~

(Y/N) (L/N) liked Jughead Jones. That was a fact.

Jughead Jones liked Betty Cooper. That was also a fact.

Another (very) known fact was that Betty Cooper liked Archie Andrews, yet Archie liked Valerie Brown.

It was a huge mess and there was no way to fix it.

~~~

“Are you ever going to tell him you like him?”

(Y/N) looked up from her book to see Kevin Keller and Veronica Lodge slide into the booth she was sitting in. “No.”

“But why?” complained Veronica. She was the biggest (Y/N)/Jughead shipper there was.

“Because he likes Betty,” (Y/N) replied smoothly. “I’m not gonna waste my time.”

“Oh c’mon,” Kevin exclaimed. “That boy is taken with you, he just hasn’t realized it yet.”

“And he probably never will. I’m completely happy just being friends with him Keller, I’m not going to jeopardize that friendship because of my feelings.”

“Whatever (Y/N),” Veronica scoffed. “But he’s going to find out sooner or later.”

The trio of friends turned to the door when they heard the jingling of a bell, alerting the patrons in Pop’s that someone had entered. Jughead looked around the diner, his eyes settling on the (H/C) girl and making his way over.

“Hey guys,” he greeted. “What are we talking about?”

“Oh nothing,” Veronica said.

“Yeah, we were just leaving,” Kevin added as they both got up from their seats.  “Remember what we talked about (Y/N/N)!”

You simply nodded as you waved at them, too engrossed in your book to notice the looks they exchanged with each other.

“So, what were you talking about?” Jughead asked as he sat next to you.

(Y/N) looked up at him and gave him a smile, “Don’t worry about it.”

~~~

Jughead couldn’t help but worry. He was too curious for his own good, everybody knew that. He wanted to know what his best friend had been talking about with Veronica and Kevin before he had arrived, but she wasn’t telling.

He followed her around for the whole week, bugging and begging her to tell him. She’d always laugh and give him a ridiculous response.

“We were talking about how my cat got diabetes.”

“Veronica was telling me that Reggie is actually very gay for Chuck.”

“Kevin and Veronica were trying to convince me to go skinny dipping in the river with them.”

Jughead was pretty tired of her excuses.

~~~

Later that week, Jughead had managed to corner Veronica in the hallway and was pestering her trying to figure out the topic of the conversation Pop’s.

“Fine!” Veronica cried out in exasperation. Noticing that (Y/N) was rounding the corner and approaching them, the Lodge girl quickly came up with a plan. Pushing Jughead into an empty classroom next to them, she motioned for him to stay put. Curious, Jughead decided to listen to her and watched as (Y/N) was stopped by Veronica.

“So (Y/N), I assume you’re on your way to meet Jughead at Pop’s?” Veronica had a sly smile on her face.

“Of course not,” (Y/N) replied. “Why follow my daily schedule when I can be spontaneous.”

Noticing the heavy sarcasm in her tone, Veronica gave her an irritated look. “Well little Miss Sarcasm, sorry for asking.”

The (H/C) haired girl flashed a smile at Veronica, “Where else would I be going Ronnie?”

Jughead smiled at his best friends words. It was indeed a daily ritual to sit at Pop’s until closing time every day, just enjoying each others company as they drank some milkshakes.

“So have you thought about what we told you?”

Jughead was snapped out of his thoughts by Veronica’s question. ‘What is she talking about?’ he though to himself.

“Yeah, I have actually,” he heard (Y/N) reply. “I’m not doing it.”

“You have to,” Veronica said.

“No Ronnie, I am not telling my best friend that I like him!”

Jughead felt his breathing stop. (Y/N) liked him? His (Y/N)? He was so lost in his thoughts that he didn’t notice (Y/N) and Veronica walking away. He quickly gathered his thoughts and rushed off to Pop’s, determined to get some answers from his best friend.

~~~
“You’re late,” (Y/N) said, not looking up from her book as Jughead approached her booth.

“Yeah, I got caught up with some stuff for the Blue & Gold. Betty needed my help,” Jughead mentally cursed himself for his shitty excuse. (Y/N) simply looked up at him over her book, raising an eyebrow at him, before going back to her story.

Jughead didn’t know what to do. He wanted to ask her about what she had said to Veronica back at school but he couldn’t seem to find the words to speak.

“You alright there Juggie?” (Y/N) asked. “You seem very conflicted.”

“Do you like me?” Jughead blurted out. He mentally face palmed. ‘Way to be subtle’ he mentally reprimanded himself.

(Y/N)’s eyes widened briefly before going back to her book. “Dammit Ronnie,” she muttered under her breath.

“So it’s true?” Jughead asked nervously.

“Yeah,” (Y/N) replied nonchalantly, still reading.

“I’m sorry (Y/N). I really am, but I like Betty,” Jughead’s voice almost trailed off at the end as he braced himself for her reaction. He didn’t know what she’d do. He was expecting anger, sadness, a melancholic response. He got none of those.

“Ok,” the girl simply replied. Jughead’s head shot up.

“I’m sorry (Y/N/N), I truly am.”

(Y/N) finally looked up at him, setting her book down after she marked her page.

“Why?” she questioned. Jughead looked at her in confusion.

“Why are you sorry Juggie?” she said. “I knew you liked Betty. That’s why I didn’t say anything”

“Yeah but, it’s just that you like me, and I uh- I feel really bad and uh…” Jughead stumbled over his words, not knowing how to reply.

His best friend leaned back in her seat and chuckled. “Juggie. You have no reason to be sorry. We can’t control our feelings. I like you, you like Betty, that’s the way it is. We can’t change it.”

“Yeah, but I feel kind of shitty,” Jughead breathed.

“Don’t,” his best friend replied. “Just because you don’t like me back doesn’t mean we’re not friends Jug. You’re my best friend, and our friendship is more important than some stupid feelings.”

And with those words, Jughead felt reassured as they ordered their milkshakes, drinking the night away, knowing that their friendship wasn’t ruined.

~~~

“You have to come along guys!” Veronica exclaimed. “Last time it was only me, Josie, Kevin, and Reggie but we all need a stress reliever.”

It was a Friday, and Veronica was trying to get her friends to go clubbing with her. Reluctantly, and with a lot of encouragement, they all agreed. Even Jughead.

It was eight at night when they all stepped into the club. Veronica, fearless and confident, dragged Josie and Kevin off to dance,with Archie tagging along. (Y/N) chose to sit down for awhile and Jughead and Betty joined her. (Y/N) felt really out of place as Betty and Jughead struck up a conversation and she decided to wander around. Just as she got up, she bumped into Reggie (who she had forgotten was there to be honest) and stumbled. She felt hands wrap around her waist as she put her hands out to steady herself.

“Whoa there,” Reggie said, smirking. “Don’t go falling for me (Y/N)”

(Y/N) couldn’t help but groan and chuckle at his lame pick-up line. Her and Reggie had once been friends, best friends actually, up until high school. He had instantly become popular and she hadn’t. They had simply grown apart.

“I had honestly forgotten you had come,” the girl stated.

“You wound me (Y/N/N),” Reggie smiled, placing a hand upon his heart. “And here I was thinking that you loved me.”

“Yea yea, long time no see huh?” the girl replied.

“Yeah,” Reggie muttered awkwardly, rubbing the back of his neck. “I miss our friendship and I’m honestly sorry that we stopped talking.”

“Buy me a milkshake and you’ll be forgiven,” (Y/N) told him.

“Deal,” Reggie said. “Let’s go.”

“What? Now?”

“Yea, we have a lot of catching up to do.”

~~~

“Jug, why is (Y/N) leaving with Reggie?” Betty questioned.

Snapping his head to look for his best friend, Jughead immediately stood up and walked over to the pair that was making their way out of the club.

“(Y/N/N)!” Jughead called out. The pair stopped and turned around. “Where are you going?”

“Oh, Reggie here is gonna buy me milkshakes,” (Y/N) answered happily.

“Uh, I believe I said one  milkshake,” Reggie said in a teasing tone, bumping his shoulder against the girl’s.

“Uh, I believe I never said how many milkshakes you owe me,” (Y/N) shot back in an equally teasing tone. Jughead looked back and forth between them, an uneasy feeling creeping up on him.

“Yeah, okay,” he mumbled. “See you around I guess.”

(Y/N) frowned slightly at his response before being pulled away by Reggie, the smile reappearing on her face. Jughead made his way back to Betty.

~~~

“…and then we also have to start working on next week’s spread,” Betty said as Jughead glanced at the club’s entrance.

“And I also kissed Veronica at cheer tryouts,” Betty said, trying to get Jughead’s attention.

“Uh huh,” Jughead replied absentmindedly, still looking at the entrance.

“And I also found a unicorn and named it Sparkles. He’s currently in my attic.”

“Yeah, that sounds great Betty.”

“Jughead!” Betty shouted. He turned to her, nearly knocking over his drink.

“Go after her Juggie,” Betty said. “I know you’re worried.”

“It’s just…its Reggie,” Jughead started. “I don’t know why she left with him.”

“Well, they are friends,” Betty replied. “Go Jughead. We all know you like her. Go after her.”

Jughead looked at her in surprise. “You think I like her?”

“Jug,” she said. “I know you like her. We all do.”

“But I like you,” he mumbled, surprised when Betty giggled.

“That’s sweet Jug, really, but come on, you really don’t like her? She’s in love with you y’know. She always has been.”

“I know…” Jughead trailed off.

“Go talk to her,” Betty encouraged,

Jughead left the club.

~~~

As he approached Pop’s, Jughead couldn’t feel the small pang of jealously that he felt as he saw (Y/N) sitting at their usual booth with Reggie, as they both drank a milkshake. He watched as she tilted her head back, laughing as Reggie told her a story, gesticulating wildly with his hands.

He couldn’t help but think over Betty’s words. Yes, he always did think that (Y/N) was beautiful, and yes, he always did love receiving a hug from her. But that was normal with best friends…right?

But as he stood outside, watching (Y/N) sitting at their booth with Reggie Mantle, he couldn’t help but agree with Betty. He definitely felt something for his best friend. He always had, he had just ignored those feelings. He wouldn’t have left Betty if he didn’t feel something for (Y/N).

He watched as (Y/N)’s gaze traveled to the window, spotting him and instantly smiling at him. Reggie’s eyes followed soon after and he got up/ Jughead watched as he gave (Y/N) a quick hug and paid for their milkshakes before leaving the diner.

“Don’t fuck this up freak,” Reggie muttered as he passed Jughead. Reggie was right, Jughead couldn’t mess any of this up.

He made his way inside and took his usual seat next to (Y/n).

“What are you doing here Jug? You were having such a nice time at the club with Betty!” the (H/C) girl exclaimed.

Gathering up all the courage he had, Jughead quietly replied, “But she’s not you.”

(Y/N) froze before looking up at Jughead. “What?”

“She’s not you (Y/N),” Jughead continued, feeling confident. He had nothing to lose and he knew that she liked him back. “Betty’s great and all, but she’s not you. You’re the one that’s always been there for me. You helped me after my dad went off the rails and mom left with Jellybean. You were there to support me when I began my novel and you were there for me when the drive-in closed down. You offered me a place to stay when I had nothing. It’s always been you (Y/N),I just never thought that we could be anything more than friends.”

(Y/N) threw her head back and laughed. “Oh Juggie. Of course I’ve always been there for you. You’re my best friend. I love you.”

“Go out with me? Please,” Jughead awaited her reply.

Smiling up at him, (Y/N) replied, “This can be our first date Jug.”

Jughead smiled at her and wrapped his arm around her shoulder, pulling her into him. And they spent their night there, like they usually did, just talking and sharing milkshakes. Only now, things had changed. They were happy, and it was quite obvious to anyone who saw them sitting together, exchanging shy kisses as the night dragged on.

“I love you too (Y/N/N).”

Here’s my major issue with how Jasper is treated.

Both Lapis and Peridot got a second chance.

Lapis, who nearly drowned two children, broke Greg’s leg and stole the ocean, got a second chance.

Peridot, who almost killed Steven, knew about the Cluster and returned with a space ship that almost destroyed Beach City, got a second chance.

But Jasper doesn’t?

Yes, I know Jasper has done terrible things but it seems really unfair that both Lapis and Peridot have gotten to be forgiven but Jasper hasn’t. Not to mention I feel like people are so willing to forgive Lapis but not Jasper. Why? Lapis, if anything, she just as bad as Jasper if not worse. I mean thanks to the way the writers handle her, Lapis comes off as cruel instead of aloof. Like I hate Lapis so much right now because instead of you know, apologizing for some of the shitty things she did, she just acts like she didn’t really do anything wrong.

Something about how the writers of SU treat Jasper really bugs me. I don’t know if it’s because she’s one of the few buff characters on the show or what but I am really sick of how she is treated.

anonymous asked:

No offence, but why do you like chloe price? She's such a garbage person. Like, steals money from the disabled, shoots peoples dogs for no reason, ignores maxs friend going through severe depression and suicide attempts tier of garbage person

Chloe Price is so much more than just her impulsive, reckless and selfish behavior. Which have reasons for, but do not  justify them in any way.

Chloe could have been something great but life just had other plans, in the great rewind while making breakfast with William, we see how Chloe used to be a cheerful kid who loved her family and then later in that timeline we see how smart and dedicated she is to her studies.

Her reckless and shitty attitude was just her looking for some kind of dumb justice. Getting back at everyone because she feels cheated and alone.

I don’t remember her shooting dogs for no reason?? If you mean the part where you talk to Frank and it goes bad. Pompidou charges at Max and Chloe and Chloe merely reacts. It was self defense in the only way she knew how to at the moment. She was holding a gun, there was a hostile, so in her brain the logical solution was to shoot the hostile.

And Chloe didn’t even know about Kate. Chloe had no clue about what was Kate going through, nor was it her problem in any way at the time. But when you save Kate, Chloe brings Max to the hospital to see her.

Yes, Chloe is an asshole, she guilt trips almost everyone. But that doesn’t mean she’s a terrible person in general. She just needs help. She just didn’t know how to ask for it.

No one’s perfect. And this game literally shows us the different sides of Chloe Price.

So I like her because she deserved better.

anonymous asked:

Yo this was the anon who asked about your titles. I didn't mean any harm and I am honestly hurt by the fact that you took my question offensively. How was my question rude?

Gah no I didn’t take offense or find you rude!!! I’m not sure why some people took my response that way, I guess that’s just the way tone gets lost online. I was just being silly, in the offhand way I would respond to a friend. You can always assume that my intent is to be kind and genuine (unless someone is being super shitty about something that’s actually important), I’m sorry it came off otherwise this time.

I feel sometimes like I’m sincere to a fault and I know some people find my posts to be pretentious and I get REALLY self conscious about it, which is why I don’t actually respond to asks very often, and why I responded to yours in the briefest possible way haha. But I meant what I said, even if I didn’t expand on it! Here is the super-earnest and pedantic version:

“I do what I want” sounds kind of flippant but it’s also a difficult and empowering mantra to live by in a society that pressures you to follow arbitrary conventions for no other reason than that they’re easy and expected. If I didn’t do what I want in life I wouldn’t be an artist, and if I didn’t do what I want in art my art would be boring, so I try to protect independence and originality above everything else I do, and I think it’s important for other people to do the same, and maybe not worry too much about whether the title of something they make fits within the character limit on twitter because maybe that’s not as important as choosing the title that feels right for your piece.

Are the titles of my 4 most recent gallery pieces obnoxiously long? Yep! Do about 50% of people absolutely hate them, just because they’re long? Yep! Have at least a dozen people compared them to titles of Fall Out Boy songs? Yep (and that’s the best)!. 

There are also lots of people who really loved the titles and said that they made them think more about the meaning of the pieces, and that’s cool, because I think the titles complete the pieces perfectly. But I also think it’s so silly that anyone is even talking about the titles because all I did was break an arbitrary norm by letting my titles be a little long, when no one ever really pays attention to artwork titles anyway, so it’s just so… not revolutionary or even important or worth talking about? 

So if you want to talk about it, I’d rather center the conversation around why we shove ourselves into the boxes of convention in the first place and how liberating it is to allow yourself outside that box from time to time. There are so many decisions I’ve made with my career that go against what other people thought I should do, but I know that trusting myself and doing what I want will always pave a better path forward than following the ones that everyone else laid out for me. And questioning small things is great practice for questioning big things. One of the most important questions I ever asked in art school was a small one – basically, “why does it have to be a rectangle?” – and my art style formed around my answer to that question (“it doesn’t”), and I make art that fits in circles and squares and diamonds and lots of other shapes because rectangles are arbitrary and stupid! Just like the length of titles is arbitrary and stupid, and lots of things they teach you in school are arbitrary and stupid, and living in a house with these weird geometric walls instead of on a houseboat or in a tree fort or in a cave is arbitrary and stupid, everything is dumb and made up, just go do what you want!

This is why I tried to reply in one sentence!

Ok so that post mocking EL James made me think about a few things. 

The first thing is something that I worry about whenever I reblog posts that make fun of bad writing or bad writing advice. I worry that someone will see my utter malicious glee at a phrase like “his eyebrows widened”, and then think “I could see myself making a mistake like that. I must be a shitty writer. :( “

This is absolutely not the case, and in fact, it probably means the exact opposite!

Being a good creative writer is always a balance between two things: Writing clearly, and writing inventively. At some points, your writing might use quick cliches and simple, invisible language (example: defaulting to “said” for a dialogue tag) for clarity’s sake. In another moment, you might experiment with a new way of describing something familiar (in a fic a while ago I described someone’s laugh as “a butterfly trying to escape a closed window”, and people seemed to think that was cool)

The thing is, when you’re fiddling around with words to make New Things, it involves a lot of trial and error. You may very well end up with something ridiculous like “his eyebrows widened” when you’re just trying to come up with a creative way to say “his eyes widened”. This experimentation phase is almost always when you end up with magical expanding eyebrows.

And if you catch yourself doing that, even in something you’ve already published - laugh at it! Laugh at yourself, because you have made something funny, and funny is the hardest thing to make. Maybe you’ve even stumbled upon a good comedic idea. Douglas Adams and Sir Terry Pratchett both crafted some hilarious extended metaphors, and that definitely required some experimentation.

EL James’ writing was dumped onto the poor, unsuspecting masses in a state that can only be described as embarrassing, and her book succeeded purely because of scandalous marketing and morbid curiosity. We laugh at her mistakes because a whole chain of supposedly professional editors and publishers failed to catch them. The problem was not that EL James wrote garbage; the problem was that she wrote garbage and then no one corrected her and instead they sold the garbage in its garbage state.

But you must make garbage too! You gotta practice, and all practice is a process of experimentation and failure. Hopefully, your editors will be 100% better than EL James’s in that they will help you grow. So please keep writing ridiculous phrases! Remember that they are a sign of you trying to be creative. Laugh at them, too! And then learn, and try again.

Nothing But My Way

Inspired by @spiritusignis ‘s headcanon about certain events after Jack and Bitty come out. I hope I did your HCs justice.

 It had been a few months (okay, four months and three weeks, but who was counting?) since Jack and Bittle came out to the NHL, and honestly, Jack couldn’t complain. He got to have his boyfriend on his arm at media events, he wasn’t worried about being outed every time he and Bittle grabbed coffee, and most importantly, nothing catastrophic had happened. He was allowed to have this. He could have his A and his team and his boyfriend and his life, all at once, and nobody was going to take it away from him.

Of course, not everyone was as welcoming as the Falcs. Jack didn’t really mind the checks; everyone wanted to get in a hit at Bad Bob’s son, so he’d been getting smacked around in the rink for a decade. He barely noticed an uptick in physical aggression, and Bitty always had the cutest worried face when Jack got back from a rough game. But the verbal shit was something else.

I really think that the author doesn’t make the book, your imagination does. Just because JK Rowling says that Hagrid’s a Gryffindor, or Sirius is straight, doesn’t mean that Sirius couldn’t have kissed half the men in London and, hell, if you want it to be that way, Hagrid could be a Ravenclaw. So don’t get upset because you think she was wrong, she’s right in her own version, but some people need to learn to make their own, and stop being shitty about it.

Rocknaldo was a good episode with an important message.

~~~~~SPOILERS BELOW ~~~~~

~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~

I definitely saw it as an allegory for cultural appropriation. Ronaldo sees the gems as ‘other’. He even has the discussion with Steven about how the Crystal Gems aren’t ***really*** ‘Rock People’. (Even after Steven tells him that he finds those words offensive). Even though Steven is a Gem, the Crystal Gems ARE Gems.

Then he goes and tries to become part of the group, become a Gem. Takes on what he THINKS are their characteristics and even goes so far as to begin to tell Steven what is and is not Gem behaviour. Sound familiar? 

Ronaldo is not a good ally, or a good friend. Connie is a wonderful example of both a friend and ally to Steven. She’s part of the Crystal Gems not because she demanded it or asked it but because she’s proven herself as someone who cares about them. She’s someone willing to put herself in vulnerable positions for Steven and Steven feels the same. The fact that Ronaldo says it’s only because she’s Steven’s girlfriend is significant. It shows he has no understanding of the core values of the Gems.

Honestly there’s a lot to unpack in this episode.

I know people are upset because there was a teaser that we’d be meeting a new Gem. That was kinda a shitty move. HOWEVER not every episode can further the grand, overarching plot. Sometimes we need to have other episodes and I think this one was a FANTASTIC one that tackled some serious issues in a way kids can see as approachable.

You slipped awake in the morning but didn’t move yet. However, your boyfriend did. His arm was draped over your waist and his bare chest against your bare back but he pulled away.  You wanted to protest but that would let him know you were awake, and you weren’t quite ready to function. Until you heard the noise of an iPhone camera shutter and you knew he was not taking a selfie. You knew that your arms would be covering your chest in the picture and the covers, which were down by your waist, was covering everything lower. Still, Anthony did not need a picture like that on his phone.

“Delete that immediately.” You told him. You opened you eyes and smirked as Anthony almost dropped his phone in surprise. He fumbled with it for a moment before finally getting a firm grasp on it. He locked it and looked at you.

“Well good morning.” He said, arms crossed. He had pulled on some sweat pants but no shirt. His curls hung down, the tips barely grazing his shoulders. You sat up, pulling some covers up to cover your chest.

“Seriously Anthony. Delete it.” You told him.

“Fine.” He relented. He scrolled through his phone and deleted the picture. “Here’s proof.” He showed you his phone and the last picture in his camera roll was a picture of you at dinner the night prior. It was your anniversary and had celebrated with dinner. You “celebrated” more at home as well.

anonymous asked:

The receipt-pulling for Grump mistakes has me thinking of recent comments from Dan about Mel Gibson. I don't recall which video. Gibson had made (as opposed to mere ignorance) intentionally malicious, even violent, statements about Jewish people. Dan said he'd heard Gibson was reaching out to the Jewish community and trying to make amends; that if he was sincere he could forgive him. I wish even half the world had the same attitude. If Dan Avidan can't be called a good person we're all damned.

Here’s my two cents. And some people may not like it, some people may not agree with it, and that’s okay. I try not to get too serious on this blog for a lot of reasons, but I’ll say something to this.


The culture of “pulling receipts” is fairly new, I want to say like.. one and a half years to two years ago you didn’t see that phrase or people doing things in that manner. Just like The Discourse is also a very fairly new phase in tumblr culture, I literally had never seen that anywhere I think until the start of this year\late last year. Tumblr has this culture of just wanting to be mad. I don’t know why. People on here are very angry. I couldn’t tell you why. Maybe it’s because they’re stuck in situations they can’t get out of, so they do and say mean things and brigade together to do and say mean things to other people because it makes them feel powerful or better about the things they can’t change. That’s been what bullying has been about since the beginning of time.

And don’t confuse yourselves, what you do is bullying. By doing what you do in the way that you do things you are effectively what you hate. Now I’m not saying some things aren’t worth standing up for, and I’m not saying some things that people do aren’t shitty. I’m not saying it sucks and doesn’t hurt to be invalidated in everyday life. But what I am saying is this culture of being blindingly, white-hot-with-rage angry at little indiscretions is upsettingly ridiculous.

There are some people worth having a conversation with. And if they’re not an outspoken neo-nazi\white nationalist\anyone bent on actually hurting or destroying or killing a sect of people for whatever reason, then those are the people it is worth having calm conversations with. And, yes, people can change. People can apologize and mean it. People can want to do better. But if you don’t give them a chance, how can that ever happen? That’s what it comes down to, and I’m being serious here, do these people that are angry all the time and do things like this actually want people to change? Or would they just like them to vanish from the face of the earth? Because these people who do accidental things that aren’t the coolest but still accidental, sometimes even when they’re not (unlearning hateful behavior is an important ideal to nurture, as well) deserve just as much a chance as the rest of us.

Remind yourself that you don’t know everything either. Be open to conversation. “Pulling receipts” and doing “discourse” posts and all this other nonsense… it’s not conducive to anything. It’s such a hateful, angry culture. There are things worth fighting and being angry about. Two guys on the internet playing video games are usually not one of them. It’s okay to make notes on bad behavior when you see it. And there’s always room for critique. You definitely don’t have to love or agree with everything that comes out of Arin and Dan’s mouths (or anyone’s mouth, for that matter, because literally nobody is perfect. Were you born knowing all the terminology that is growing and evolving right now as we speak? Absolutely not. You’re entrenched in this culture now, you weren’t always. You did not nor will you ever know everything, and how will you if you don’t get a chance to ask questions or politely be told something was wrong so you can change?). But everything else is out of hand and ridiculous.

We need to be better to each other.

anonymous asked:

Do you think there is ever a circumstance where choosing death is preferable to emotional pain? Does it really always get better, eventually? Or are there some situations where one will always be in severe emotional pain?

I don’t want to give you a cliche. I hope that life gets better. I hope that for people who struggle as teenagers, they find more strength and better, more supportive communities as they get older. I think sometimes life can seem simultaneously so huge it is overwhelming and so small that it’s hard to see the long term, and that combination can be crushing. Getting older can give you some perspective on that, at least, in that’s easier to give things the weight they deserve. For example, when it comes to people who treat you poorly, that’s no weight at all. When it comes to people who make your heart feel full, that’s all the weight you can muster. I’d hate to see anyone give up on their tomorrows, with all that possibility, based on their yesterdays.

I know that cliche and 80s movies and so on tend to communicate that high school and college and all that is the most important, most fun time of your life. I think that can put way too much pressure on teenagers and young adults who are often going through enough already. Plus, it’s total bullshit. As an adult, I don’t know anybody who talks about that time as though it were the golden years. To lots of people, it was a shitty time and thankfully they got through it. So in that way it often does get better. 

That doesn’t mean it’s easy. Some things may always be painful. When you look at that person who treated you poorly or that shitty time in high school, it may always feel raw and emotional. One of the best and worst things about being alive is our capacity to feel emotions. The other great thing about continuing to grow and mature is that you get more control over what’s in your life, and you can choose to add things that add meaning and joy, and remove things that add pain. There may be pain- I think pain is a part of life -but fortunately, a capacity to feel deeply shows the ability to feel joy and love and self-love.  

I’d also say this, from the science-y perspective. We have this thing called the ‘Regression to the Mean,’ or more rudely ‘Reversion to Mediocrity.’ Essentially what this means is, even really high numbers or really low numbers tend to fall back towards the average number. Things don’t stay abnormally high or abnormally low for a very long period of time. It’s just not sustainable. We see this in stats, in medicine, in economics, in environmental studies, etc. So in that way, if things are feeling really bad right now, they probably will get better, because that’s how things work.

I do think that in order for things to get better, it often takes time, patience, and hard work. Sometimes it does just happen overnight, or because the person got older and wiser, or because something awesome happened, or whatever. But often it takes some real, conscious effort. It can be really hard to do that when you’re feeling awful, but I think it’s worth it. I think you’re worth it.

I hope guardienne will discover her power very soon, and that we'll know what kind of faery she is. Some people think she might be a dragon or a deamon, what about you ?

if she’s half-daemon, things would start to get very angsty :^) because that would mean that she is literally the embodiement of what Eldarya hates the most : Human and Daemon :^)

also since i saw a post about it floating around in the tag today, what if Gardy gets contaminated by the crystal and discovers her powers this way ? what i find interesting about this theory is that, iirc, the contamination is usually a gradual process. but you can also force someone to “ingest” a piece of crystal. it’s a commonly used torture method

:^)

what if Gardy gets tortured in the future
