it restores my faith in humanity

4

I’m not sitting here to preach positivity to try and just make all your troubles go away. I know the world can be a very shitty place for a lot of people. I’m very privileged to be in the position that I’m in. I’m very, very lucky to be able to do what I do day after day. But not a lot of people are. And some people go to YouTube as some sort of stop away from their lives. And if I can be any sort of joy or positivity in a day full of shit, in a sea full of darkness, then that will bring me so much happiness.

There is an underground network preparing to hide immigrants
Faith leaders in California don't have hope President Donald Trump won't enter churches or places of worship where immigrants may seek sanctuary. So they are building safe houses and preparing rooms to hide immigrants who fear ICE will deport them.
By Kyung Lah, Alberto Moya and Mallory Simon, CNN

A hammer pounds away in the living room of a middle class home. A sanding machine smoothes the grain of the wood floor in the dining room.

But this home Pastor Ada Valiente is showing off in Los Angeles, with its refurbished floors, is no ordinary home.

“It would be three families we host here,” Valiente says.

By “host,” she means provide refuge to people who may be sought by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE. The families staying here would be undocumented immigrants, fearing an ICE raid and possible deportation.

The purchase of this home is part of a network formed by Los Angeles religious leaders across faiths in the wake of Donald Trump’s election. The intent is to shelter hundreds, possibly thousands of undocumented people in safe houses across Southern California.

The goal is to offer another sanctuary beyond religious buildings or schools, ones that require federal authorities to obtain warrants before entering the homes.

“That’s what we need to do as a community to keep families together,” Valiente says.

At another Los Angeles neighborhood miles away, a Jewish man shows off a sparsely decorated spare bedroom in his home. White sheets on the bed and the clean, adjacent full bathroom bear all the markers of an impending visit. The man, who asked not to be identified, pictures an undocumented woman and her children who may find refuge in his home someday.

The man says he’s never been in trouble before and has difficulty picturing that moment. But he’s well educated and understands the Fourth Amendment, which gives people the right to be secure in their homes, against unreasonable searches and seizures. He’s pictured the moment if ICE were to knock on his door.

“I definitely won’t let them in. That’s our legal right,” he says. “If they have a warrant, then they can come in. I can imagine that could be scary, but I feel the consequences of being passive in this moment is a little scary.”

Caught by your linen eyes, let them fool

This is for the lovely and incomparable @inbetweenwars, who, when they heard that I’ve been too sick to work and couldn’t manage to buy @essiecorking‘s fanbook, ‘an invincible love’, offered to buy me it as a gift. I’ve truly never met another person willing to do something so selfless for somebody they’ve never met, and only to cheer me up and bring happiness that they won’t benefit from, so due to the fact that they will not take payment of any kind, here is a small kagehina fic dedicated to them <333 I feel it’s not enough to convey my endless gratitude and how touched I am by your actions, but nevertheless.

This is the promised third year kagehina, as they discuss the future and finally realise their dumb feelings for one another. I call it ‘fluff without plot’, which translates as FWP, which also sounds like a noise Hinata would make.

2K, teen & up audiences <33

Title from a beautiful song, Colourway by Novo Amor



“How do you think we’ll see each other?” Hinata asks, after he’s taken out the ice lolly from his mouth with a loud, sloppily satisfying slurp.

Kageyama turns his head on the grass, his own lollipop freezing in mid-air as he frowns over at Hinata. “What do you mean?” He asks. “We’re seeing each other right now, dumbass.”

Hinata tsks in the back of his throat, something he’s taught himself to do in order to appear more authoritative to the first years. “No, bakageyama.” He sighs, long-suffering, as if he’s dealing with another one of the new recruits that Hinata has to teach how to catch a ball. “How do you think we’ll see one another when we’re older?”

No wonder Dracula went crazy. First, as Matthias, he loses Elisabetha which triggered him to become Dracula in the first place. Then, he meets Lisa, slightly restoring his faith in humanity….then loses her. Yeeeup. He had every reason to rip everyone to shreds.

FINALLY

So, today I woke up to the news hat same-sex marriage will FINALLY be a thing in my country.
We had something similar to same-sex marriage in Germany before, but it wasn’t exactly the same… Like adoptions weren’t as easy as for a heterosexual couples.

And I just-… I cried for solid ten minutes because this is so GOOD?? I thought this would never happen.

Too bad my bi ass is now on the “you can finally ask your best friend out and marry her one day”-train T-T

Anyway, just felt the urge to share these news, because DAMN I THOUGHT I’D DIE BEFORE THIS HAPPENED IN MY COUNTRY AND IT MAKES ME SO FUCKING HAPPY!!!!!!!

So if Beyonce chooses to abort those fetuses right now, it’s totally okay and not murder, right?

Mugsy, Golden Retriever (2 y/o), Hudson & Barrow St., New York, NY • “He’s my soulmate (don’t tell my fiancée, though I think he already knows). He’s my 4th Golden. He loves the water – he’ll break through the ice to make himself a little swimming pool and loves to go to the beach. Our lives revolve around making him happy. We got him and were going to move out of the city, but he kind of restored our faith in humanity. Before we had him nobody would really talk to us; now everyone wants to talk to us.”

Serious Young Man

I wrote this fic for @inknose​ who has been my Yuri on Ice enabler for a few weeks now and I love Yuri on Ice, which as we all know saved 2016, cleared up my skin, paid my taxes for me, and restored my faith in humanity… It’s Otabek and Yurio and IDK I’m new here and I love everyone on this rink ok bye!!! (~1200 words.)

Serious Young Man

The first time Yuri Plisetsky sends Otabek a picture of a cat, Otbaek wonders if it’s a mistake. Was this image meant for him? What is its meaning?

That is a cat, Otabek writes. 

Yuri agrees: Yeah.

Yuri Plisetsky is fond of cats. When he sees one on the street, his face changes, and it takes him longer than usual to realize it, to change it back. When he pets one, his shoulders relax. 

Now, he’s sharing pictures of them with Otabek. Only one picture.

It seems cute, Otabek writes. 

Yuri agrees: Yeah.

My Theory on David’s “Unwavering” Optimism

Alright so I’ve seen a couple of people putting up their theories and I thought I’d throw mine into the bunch.

In the season one finale, while David’s attempting in vain to light the wet wood for the bonfire, Max is trying to get him to “see things how they really are.” Max is assuming that David is such an optimist because he’s naive and doesn’t know that everything… well… that everything really fucking sucks. He doesn’t understand positivity because he has a presumably fucked up home life–optimism is a waste of energy.
So Max is saying all these “ow right in the heart” sort of things that, quite frankly, would be rather jarring to hear from a ten year old, when David says his piece.

(Transcript)
Max God. It’s like you live in this stupid make-believe world where “everything’s great!” The universe doesn’t work that way, idiot. Just look around. It’s what I’ve been trying to show you since day one. Life sucks. And we live in a world of desensitized, apathetic assholes. Why don’t you just get with the program and stop giving a shit. 

David: You’re right.

Max: What?

David: Times have changed. Whether I like it or not. The campers don’t care, Gwen doesn’t care, even the founder of this place has better things to do. That’s why I’ll never stop trying. Because somebody fucking has to.


This. Up until this point I thought about David what I’m assuming most people did–just another fucking idiot who has no idea how much life really sucks due to willful ignorance; then this happened. Camp Camp isn’t presenting us with an extremely unrelatable, static character–the show has given us a painfully poignant character. Nobody actually thinks that everything is great (if they do they’re delusional but I digress). David certainly doesn’t. That’s precisely why he makes such an effort to be that ray of sunshine.
I don’t know about any of ya’ll tumblr folks, but sometimes all it takes to restore my faith in humanity is someone getting really, really excited over something they love or just someone doing their best in general. It’s definitely easy to hate that person too–just like Max does with David–because when faced with something so positive when you’re…not…can feel like a fist in your solar plexus. At the same time, though, it’s worth it to try and be that positive person and love that positive person, because if you or they can make someone smile, can make  someone feel better, like there are people that care, isn’t it worth it all?
I know it is for me, and I’m pretty sure it is for David too.

Then we come to the veritable mindfuck that is the season two finale. IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE SEASON 2 FINALE STOP HERE. Not that I think anyone who hasn’t seen it would read this but-you know. Principles and whatnot.
Okay so to me the Season 2 finale just solidifies the point that David doesn’t actually believe everything is fucking wonderful all the time–he’s just one man trying his best to make a difference and prove that there are people who care. He set aside his obscenely large desire to please Campbell, who he idolizes and has happily allowed to use him as a doormat for years, to show Max that at least he cares about him. Is David even an optimist, really? Or is he just an actual realist?
Let me explain. Max is a pessimist. He sees the absolute worst in every situation, and like all true pessimists thinks he’s a realist. The inverse of that is to see everything in its most positive light, which is to say be an optimist. I don’t think that’s what David does though; I think David sees it how it is, the good and the bad, and makes a conscious decision each and every time to try and be positive. It’s so, so much easier to see the worst in a situation. Almost everyone does. Which is why it’s necessary to have people like David, who see the best in them. People like David, who want jaded, foul-mouthed ten year-olds to know someone cares. People like David, who just wants to make a safe place for children to have fun. David, who isn’t an optimist. David who cares.

I let my case rest.
