I swear the In a heartbeat fandom is split into four sections

¼th: “It’s not Yaoi, STOP SEXUALIZING CHILDREN!”
¼th: “Look at these homophobic comments on the video wow I can’t believe Christians what the-”
¼th: super cute fan art and redraws and I saw a few adorable comics in there that made my heart grow three sizes.
¼th: *giggles* “Dorian Gay”

I Want It Fast, I Want It Loud, I Want It My Way

a/n: THIS PICTURE FUCK. i’ve rode many of things in my lifetime. ;-) just not a thigh, so this might not be accurate but heyyyyyyyyy it’s fine. and if we’re gonna be honest here, how many of y'all actually even rode a dick? let alone a thigh hahaha.  love y'all :-) (smut warning obviously) 


I’m tired. I can feel the familiar ache in my body. I want nothing more than to go home and sleep for hours on end with no interruption. “C'mon, love, lets go.” I whine into Harry’s ear. His arm that is wrapped around my hip tightens, “okay, hold on.” He absentmindedly replies. I huff out. I don’t want to hold on. What the hell am I supposed to hold on to anyways? I notice a chair on the other side of the room and I instinctively follow to it. 

 When I am seated, I rest my head against the wall and close my eyes. “Alright, up you get. It’s time to go, yeah?” Harry awakes me from my quick nap, a whine slips from my lips as I’m placed on my feet. “No.” Harry chuckles lowly as he bends down and urges me to get on my back. A sleepy smile etches on my face as I climb onto him. He stands up with ease. My head falls onto his shoulder as I fall asleep with Harry’s scent lingering around me. 

 * 

 It’s hot. I can feel sweat seeping through my shirt. 

My eyes open and adjust to the darkness. The clock reads three-thirty A.M., I can hear Harry’s breathing next to me. It’s relaxing. His arms are pulled under his pillow as he lies his head on it, curly hair flopping over. His mouth is slightly ajar, and I can’t help but look at his lips. They are such a nice shape, they’re so pink and full. The shirt I have on is soaked through with sweat as I peel it off my scorching body. The cool air soothes my skin and I sigh with relief. 

With my head back onto my pillow, I continue to stare at sleeping Harry. How can one human have so much beauty to them? Not just his looks either, he has a beautiful soul as well. My eyes skim back to his lips. God, his lips. If only they were kissing me right now. Down my neck, onto my collar bone. Biting and nipping, leaving a hickey in its place. 

 I play with the idea of waking him up just to do that, but he needs his sleep. When I make up my mind to be a good girlfriend, I groan and roll over. I hate that I’m a good person sometimes. My head is still spinning with the thought of Harry kissing me all over as I close my eyes and try to sleep. Minutes pass before I huff out and grab my phone. 

Looks like I’m not going to be sleeping tonight. One perk of having a famous boyfriend is that I can look up smut about him and totally try it the next time we have sex. And that’s what I do. I head over to my Tumblr app and type in “Harry Styles smut”. The first thing that pops up is an ask. The ask reads “OKAY but imagine riding harry’s thigh i Am HURT. You would grind down on him and it would hit your clit just right and his hands would leave marks on your hips and he could feel you soaking through his jeans, and he just gets off to you getting off FUCK”. 

 Okay what in the hell is thigh riding and why am I so wet now? My mind starts racing after smut with thigh riding involved. I’ve never heard of thigh riding, but I’m already liking it. I stay up a few more minutes, maybe hours, who really knows? Looking at smut that includes thigh riding. I’m aching for the feeling of it right now. My internal conflict is raging inside me and I think I have to wake Harry. The sleeping boy next to me looks so peaceful. How could I wake him up just to ride his thigh? I can feel myself pulsing for this feeling. “Fuck.” I groan out, I can’t wait any longer. My hand starts to shake his sleeping body, “Harry.” All he does is let out a soft groan. This is going to be harder than I thought. With a swift pull from the covers, both of our bodies are uncovered. 

Harry is naked from his hips up and he looks fucking great. The tattoos sprawled across his toned body never looked so appealing in my life. I want to run my tongue over everyone of them. Black  shorts that were around my hips fall off with a swift motion from my arms, my underwear following. Fire is in my veins. Harry visibly shutters from the loss of the covers but I climb on top of him to bring him warmth.

 "Y/N?“ He mutters, his voice raspier and deeper from sleep. Fuck, I’m literally dripping for this green eyed man. “Baby, I want to try something..” I say while unleashing kisses to his jaw and neck. “At-” He stops to check the time, “5:47 in the morning?” Huh, guess I was looking at smut longer than I thought. “Yes baby, please, I’m literally dripping for you. Plus, you have to get up an hour anyways for work.” I moan out, I can already feel his erection through his pajama pants. “Well if you insist.” He smirks. “What did you want to try?” He sits up holding me in his lap. My legs are by each of his hips and his large hands are roaming my back, hips, and thighs. “Well it’s kinda weird, but I really want to try it.” I tug my lip into my teeth, nervously awaiting his response. “Yeah? What’s it then love?” “Well- I- just- let me show you. Take off your pants.” I instruct with a shaky voice, he obliges as he lifts me off his lap. He is left in his tight boxer briefs. 

I manage to mount back onto his lap, positioning myself over his left thigh. “What’re you doing babe?” Harry asks me with puzzlement in his eyes. “Just..” I moan out as I begin to move hips on his lap. The contact of my clit to his thin boxers form incoherent moans. Harry’s hands move to my hips, gripping them. “Oh so you like thigh riding, huh?” Harry’s voice is like gravel on a road sending me to move faster as his hands insinuate rapid movements. My head nods feverishly as he moves me faster. I feel his lips attach to my breasts, sucking lightly. 

Curls are in my hands as I rock back and forth in his thigh. Cotton boxers against my clit work expertly together with the collaboration of my movements and Harry’s lips. Pleasure is racing through me leaving a beating heart and restless moans. Thoughts are construed in my mind as I try to piece together all the overwhelming things that are enveloping around me. Fuck, I’m so close. “Harry…” I moan out and he gets the hint. His inked hands grip my love handles tighter and my moves pick up pace as we move with the rhythm of an imaginary tempo. “Come for me.” Harry barely whispers in my ear as he adds a nibble to my ear lobe and before I can stop myself, I am sent over the top. An orgasm rattles through me with blacked out vision and shaking hands. Spearmint surrounds me as my head collapses into Harry'a shoulder. “I didn’t know you were into that.” Harry’s voice flows out to me and I laugh, “Yeah I didn’t either.” The clock now reads six-fifteen. 

Before Harry can react, I roll off of him and fall into my spot on our bed. The covers are pulled up over me, I hum in response. “Get some sleep, my angel.” Are words I hear before I drift off.

I CAN’T DO THIS

LET ME END THIS HERE  I REALLY MISS ZIAM

looking at tumblr has been really overwhelming tonight. i am very happy with the majority of the Tony results. i am so proud of Dear Evan Hansen, the musical that has truly had such an impact on my life in a difficult time and the people in it that are such sources of positivity in my life. when i saw it, i was blown away and i have loved it infinitely ever since. it has taught me everyone is human, we all feel the need to belong and we are valid for it. it has shed light onto mental illness, something that i, and so many others, relate to and have struggled with, and we see ourselves in these characters. i don’t think you guys fucking understand that the entire theatre was sobbing during the performance. kids, senior citizens, teenagers, dads… everyone was so connected over this beautiful piece of theatre. everyone jumped to their feet after to give a standing ovation, the amount of love and emotion in that room was more than i’ve seen at every other show i’ve been to. 

this season was tough. there were many great shows that deserved awards. i am definitely a great comet fan, and i wish it had gotten more awards, including best orchestrations. remember though, that these are just the Tonys. they don’t dictate the popularity or success of a show. there were so many shows that deserved so many awards that it was impossible for all of them to win every single one. like many people, i do find it annoying and frustrating that one show tends to sweep the Tonys, but that’s something we don’t have control over, and that’s not something that you should blame on the musical itself. 

brushing aside dear evan hansen in a way that is offensive to the show, the actors, production team, and its fans is not okay. dear evan hansen was successful tonight, and it deserves it - imagine the happiness of the whole production team and actors and their families and friends right now. imagine if that were you, and there were hundreds of people online openly bashing your show and saying it didn’t deserve the award(s) that it got. before anyone know what this show was, i was overcome with emotion for it and knew that it was something extremely special. every single actor and member of the production team of dear evan hansen is so devoted to this show, and they have made it a truly amazing show that has impacted so many, whether you are impacted by it or not is irrelevant, the fact of the matter is that by bashing deh, you are invalidating so many’s peoples love for a musical that may run deeper than you know.

hating on dear evan hansen because of all of its tony wins is immature and rude. dear evan hansen didn’t choose to win these awards, it merely has a wonderful team that put together this piece of art that got the attention of the public eye. even if you don’t connect with deh the way many do, that doesn’t mean mean that it is a bad show, or that it is underserving of all of these awards. obviously, it was deserving, or else they wouldn’t have WON THEM. now, there are many shows that could have easily beaten deh for certain categories and i agree that, for example, comet should have won best orchestrations. but this is not a valid reason to bash dear evan hansen, just because you think a certain show should have won over it. it’s not the fault of dear evan hansen that great comet got robbed.

i hope that in the future, the tonys don’t take away recognition from so many great shows, but please remember that they’re just the TONYS, and they shouldn’t impact the way that you view shows. i am personally in debt to dear evan hansen for the strength and comfort it has provided me, not to mention its beautiful music and breathtaking performances that mean so much to me and so many others. let people enjoy the shows that they enjoy, and don’t spread hate just because your show didn’t win awards you think it should have. again, winning Tony awards does not mean a show is overrated or bland. it got them for a reason.

Oh my god I like dunno who to talk to about this but I'm just so upset about the vitriol that's getting slung towards this movie bc the book has made me so happy and feel so much and armie and timothee and Luca have worked so hard to make a beautiful film for us and it's getting flung back in their faces!!! I hope the hate stays contained to tumblr so they never see it. Sorry to harass you I'm just feeling VERY overwhelmed by how much hate is out there and how intense it is. I need a break

I just don’t understand it because the reviews are stellar?? I’ve read all of the 33 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes (CMBYN has 100%) and literally none of them say that the age difference is a negative thing. They never mention the stereotypes that people claim it’s perpetuating and they all say the relationship is developed in a well done way. I mean I completely understand if even knowing all the facts you are uncomfortable. That’s your right as a human being that you be allowed to have a different opinion. I just wish people read the book and didn’t just watch the trailer and assume that it’s the Worst Thing Ever.

The thing that’s funny to me is that one of TJM’s biggest flaws is just how rushed it is, and the only reason it is, I think, is because Craig had so much he wanted to fit in that there was just no way it could all get the sheer level of development it needed to succeed as a cohesive piece. He said in an interview recently that if there is a season 6, he’s gonna need to have regular flashbacks to stuff that happened in the jungle ‘cause there’s so much we didn’t get to see that he wants to expand on.

I hate saying it, but it’s true, this movie does have a number of flaws, but it’s also just so enthusiastic and filled with love and passion and clear unmitigated appreciation for us as fans, I can’t even entertain the thought of being unhappy.

Unpopular opinion about David

He wouldn’t settle for Daniel romantically and he probably wouldn’t be super forgiving if/when he learned that Daniel had really been part of a cult and had actually been trying to hurt the kids.

LOOK I’M SORRY BUT HE WOULDN’T. Sure, he’s a sweetheart, but David is not perfect. He has his limits, and even when he DIDN’T know Daniel was part of a cult, he was super passive-aggressive towards him at the mere THOUGHT of Daniel taking his spot at camp. Hell, he had an entire song dedicated to proving he was better than Daniel.

I just can’t imagine that he’d be as cheerful or friendly towards Daniel as he used to be if he learned the truth. But honestly??? That just opens the door for fun possibilities involving them snarking at each other. Sure, David can be NICE, but with added sass.

…Maybe I really don’t like the idea of them being together romantically? Mostly because it involves erasing so much of what makes them interacting FUN. Also again, David may be a hopeless romantic, but he wouldn’t settle for GARBAGE. Especially not after dating the beautiful and strong Bonquisha, let’s be fucking real. I mean, going from that beautiful lady to the human version of a Hostess Twinkie with about as much nutritional value? Yeah RIGHT. He can do better.

There is so much sadness, so many hurt souls just looking for the warmth of love. There is darkness that seems to touch everything in its path. I am drowning in the sorrow of it all, can we not find a middle ground? Just give me a place where I can rest from it all, the hate has scarred my heart too deeply.

There is beauty still, above the clouds the sun still shines. There are still stars the glow in the sky, and flowers bloom along with the songs of the birds. In the bitterness and pain of life, there is love and joy. Oh, how I hope that I have the courage to reach for the good in this life, for this present sadness will last for only a moment.

Hold on, love is on the move, in those who hope.

Comics batjokes is actually a very dynamic and also very abusive relationship. Please do not support people that promote romanticizing an abusive relationship! People that get hate for comic batjokes deserve it tbh

look man,

have ur opinion, its fine. its whatever. you can think how you want. i hate a lot of other ship dynamics myself, whether they be abusive or promote erasure or i personally just dont care for them or whathaveyou

but what i dont do - for those ships i dont like - is go out of my way to pick fights with people on this beautiful blue hecksite we call tumblr.

its not funny, its not cute, its not noble. its just showing everyone how much free time and lack of impulse control you have.

if you’re not into it, thats fine. i completely understand. honestly a lot of the material in some of the comics gets really disturbing and dark and scary. thats just how they are. heck, im a horror fanatic and some of the stuff spooks me. but just because you’re not into it, doesnt mean you have to grab a megaphone and charge into that wasps nest with all those wasps you hate so much. 

there’s a block button and xkit’s blacklist / whitelist function for a reason.

tldr: have your thoughts and opinions, just dont tag it if all youre gonna do is look for a fight.

The signs as I know them

Nothing serious, just thought I’d make a quick post ;)

Aries

The strongest person I know,  I would not be able to go through half the shit they’ve been through. Funny as fuck. Loud, but only around their freinds and people they like. Can be shyer around strangers but doesn’t take long to warm up and make you laugh.

Taurus

hahahaah so materialistic. If they’re on their phone in class, there’s a 99% chance they’re on Sephora, Asos or Color Pop. Will procratinate their work, but they still manage to hand in top quality shit bc they’re so hardworking tbh. Dry sense of humour. They have a natural and easy sense of beauty to them. 

Gemini

I don’t actually know many Gemini’s, and that’s probably beause it’s SO HARD TO GET TO KNOW THEM. Will dissappear on you for like a billion years but its alg becuase they’re honestly so much fun. Deep talks until 3am. Will not shutup and are big gossips. Loves drama, and when I’m with them, I do stupid shit.        I love them.

Cancer

All Cancer’s hate it when I call them cute… but they cute. ARTISTIC AF! not just in a painting or drawing way, but little ways as well… like home decor, cooking and little crafts here and there. Will cry if needed. Good at keeping secrets.

Leo

Okay, honestly SO funnny. SO freindly. We click and vibe. Arrogant AF, but they roll with it and exaggerate it, so it works. The other Leo I know is more of a lowkey one. Very smart and hardworking and like a super great friend. Centre of attention, but naturally, not because they openly look for it. 

Virgo

All the virgos I know are fucking crazy. In a good way. They’re also very artistic and creative, a trait I envy a lot. I don’t always click with them, but when I do, we have some pretty chill conversations. 

Libra

WILL CHARM YOUR SOCKS OFF. They dont realise it, but every thing that comes out of their mouth is very very flirty. Then they end up with ppl inlove with them and then they get all triggered and shit. Like babe. You honestly didnt see that coming? Really? So natural around ppl, even if they’re intoverts.

Scorpio

Scare me a little, not gonna lie. And it’s not because they look mean or they have an intense vibe. It’s because one minute your chilling and having a great talk, and the next, they just snap and saying something that just leaves you shook. But despite that, honestly v nice ppl. 

Sagittarius

Loud asf or quiet and reserved, no inbetween. Love to make people laugh. RAYS OF SUNSHINE!!!! Has a very relaxed and chill aproach to life and is down to talk about anything, no matter how weird :))) I love my Sag sistas

Capricorn

I honestly love Capricorns so much. My best friend. The HARDEST worker I know. Most people wouldn’t guess that she’s hillarious, but she is.. I cant even describe why she’s funny, she just is. Great at dancing and loves tea. If she ever reads this post, she’d probably give me so much shit lol.

Aquarius

The main Aquarians in my life have been ex best friends. Despite this, I still fuck with them.  Either really weird or very superficial. Also is a big narcissist. They’re so smart and quick. Having converstaions with them is so much fun because I can just bounce weird ideas off them and they wont batt an eye. Hard to get to know them though. 

Pisces

I love my pisces friends so much. They’re so funny and hillarious and sweet and I just love them so much. Their sense of humour is very silly. Loves Game of Thrones. A wee bit obsessive. Also amazing friends and they have the greatest smiles.

imagine hating women so much that you can’t even handle a beautiful canon friendship between two female characters because you’re too threatened by the fact that they’re romantically shipped by the fandom 

anonymous asked:

Why do you hate reylo so much? It's just a ship.

Me: “I hope that I’ll never again get another ask about Reylo in my life.“

Y’all: “Ding, ding, motherfucker.”

But you know what, since these past few days have been all Dramatique™, why not go all out?

I don’t hate it. Hating it would require me to have a far greater level of emotional investment in the Star Wars universe than I do. I have Problems™ with it:

Firstly, Reylo, as a ship, could only ever be a “Monster and Maiden” story, which isn’t the same as a “Beauty and Beast” story. A “Beauty and Beast” story is a story in which two individuals, one ostracized from the world for reasons beyond their control and made hard and harsh because of it, and another who, while externally fitting in with society, feels alienated on moral/intellectual/emotional/spiritual grounds, come together due to circumstance, see past each others appearances, grow and heal together, and come out happier, healthier individuals because of it.

A “Monster and Maiden” (MM) story is a story in which a truly, genuinely horrible person develops an obsession with, and terrorizes a person who isn’t, and calls it love. For a MM story to be good, the Maiden must learn from her interactions with the Monster, and ultimately become the principal actor in his demise. If she gains enough understanding of him to be able to look at his charred corpse with pity, that’s only an angst bonus.

I, personally, get a kick out of MM stories. I enjoy seeing women destroy men who try to control them. I love watching women using the tools of their tormentors on them. I revel in the inevitable irony of their demise.

But a “Monster and Maiden” story has no place in the Star Wars film franchise because:

A) It’s a multi-billion dollar family film franchise. The people that watch it are mostly casual movie-goers and children. Neither of these groups is all that capable of recognizing the Monster as an actual Monster because part of it is the charm.* The first because they only think about the film while it’s in front of them, and the second because even if they’re made uncomfortable by it, don’t have the language to articulate said discomfort, because we live in a world where male entitlement is the norm.

*Whether Kylo Ren has any charm to speak of is debatable, but considering the popularity of Reylo, it’s safe to assume that a not-insignificant portion of the audience thinks so.

B) Rey is the very first female protagonist in a franchise this big.

Millions of girls and women look at her as a sort of bastion of hope that things are finally, finally looking up for women on screen.

To have her character development be tied to a trope rife with gendered violence and rape allegory would be awful and cruel to the above mentioned girls and women. Women deserve a female hero who has a true, non-gendered hero’s journey.

Secondly, a lot of Reylo shippers’ shipping relies on Rey and Kylo being narrative mirrors/contrasts/parallels/equals. This is incorrect.

Rey is not Kylo Ren’s narrative mirror/contrast/parallel/equal. Finn is.

Finn is the one with a comparable and contrasting background: brainwashed since birth as part of a fascist organisation but left at the first opportunity because he could not participate in the violence, in contrast with Kylo who left a loving family in order to join a a fascist organisation and gleefully participate in it.

Finn is the one who changed his name when he changed alignment, just as Kylo Ren did.

Finn is the one who started out the film with one plan in mind and then discarded it for Rey. Just like Kylo Ren.

Finn is the one who introduces himself with a lie to Rey, just like Kylo Ren. Except Finn’s lie, “I’m a big deal in the Rebellion.” is growing into a truth, while Kylo Ren’s lie, “I could teach you.”* lost credibility once Rey proves herself stronger in the Force without any training and even more so once she finds a real teacher in Luke.

*Because it is a lie. Kylo Ren isn’t capable of teaching anyone anything. Teaching requires patience and also, you know, actually knowing what you’re doing.

Rey is the axis around which Finn and Kylo revolve.

Thirdly, continuing from above, but veering slightly into speculation so I’m putting it separately, Reylo shippers vastly overestimate the importance Rey and Kylo Ren have in each other’s storylines.

On Rey’s side of things, she has already bested Kylo. She has bested him in the Force and she has bested him in battle. Rey, after receiving proper training, will be able to annihilate Kylo in thirty seconds flat.

His supposed superiority in the Force was not only the sole reason he posed any kind of personal threat to her, but also the only thing he could use to tempt her to the Dark Side with.

The true temptation for Rey will be the opportunity to exact violent, brutal revenge on Kylo for Han’s murder. This temptation can’t come from Kylo himself, but most likely from Palpatine 2.0, with Luke being the counter who preaches forgiveness. Kylo Ren’s person does not play into any of this. Not one bit.

On Kylo Ren’s side of things, and if we go with “the final destination is redemption” thinking, people overestimate the amount of absolution Rey could give him that would actually hold any meaning.

Because Rey’s life on Jakku would’ve been pretty much the same be it the Republic, the Empire or the First Order in charge. She was in a desert wasteland and that’s that.

The only act that Rey has on Kylo, personally, is the murder of Han, and besides the fact that I honestly doubt that it’ll be forgiven, that’s only the cherry on top of a mountain of terror and violence he inflicted on the galaxy.

Because Kylo Ren is the face and right hand of the First Order, for his redemption to actually be meaningful, absolution must come from someone who suffered at the hands of the First Order.

Which brigs us back to Finn, who ran away because he was too good and too kind for it.

(Does anyone have any reading recommendations for this? Not just fics, meta as well, I live off of paralleling storylines.)

Finally, and frankly the only point I’m emotionally invested in, people who say: “Reylo is Zutara 2.0″

Like, what the fuck? No, seriously, what. The. Fuck. 

To liken the most self-certain character with one on a journey of self-discovery, to liken an abused child acting out of love to a grown man and fascist acting out of a desire for power, to liken a relationship built on shared history and narrative equality and mutual trust and bone-marrow deep understanding to an, at best mediocre, “Monster and Maiden” story?

How did their brains not melt and pour out of their ears from the sheer amount of mental gymnastics they had to do to come to that conclusion? How did their keyboards not spontaneously combust from being used to type out such balant, outrageous nonsense? How did reality around them not bend and tear under the weight of such complete, utter, willful misinterpretation of the characters involved and their dynamics?


In summary, Anon, I don’t care about Reylo, I think people who ship it misinterpret the characters and their relationship, but I’m neither knowledgeable nor invested enough in Star Wars to argue about it… until someone comes along and tries to say that shipping a fascist with the woman he terrorized and whose parental figure he murdered, is the same as shipping two people who manage to pour their hearts out to each other within five minutes of their first real conversation.

What makes MikaYuu the most beautiful ship in the story is the way they show each other how much they actually love the other. No 'I really like you', no declarations of love, no words, just actions. And above all little ones, like Yuu eating more so Mika can drink from him later on, Mika holding Yuu's hand when he's crying, Mika waiting for him to wake up, walking together side by side etc. Whereas in Shinoa's case (No hate intended) it's always others who have to point out her feelings for Yuu
