“Saroo’s character is incredibly torn, because he’s got this wonderfully loving family in Australia that he is completely thankful for and is at home with.

You grumbled all the way to the art gallery, adamant in your opposition to being dragged there by your roommate.
“Shut up, we’re already here. Are you going to brood the whole time?” Liz glared at you before pushing the glass doors open.
You’d pouted, clearly having lost the battle a long time ago. You settled on folding your arms defensively and letting out one last exasperated sigh. “Fine, but I still don’t know why you brought me here to begin with.”
Liz’s eyebrows shot up at the absurdity of the question, “You haven’t left the house for anything besides work and the occasional run. You’re starting to get boring, where’s fun Y/N?”
Her words only made you pout further because she was completely right-like most of the time despite your inability to admit it to her.

“Well, what do we have here?”
Voice thick with irritation,
spitefulness leaking from plush lips that supported the thin
cigarette hung loosely from his teeth, a threatening gaze sized you
up and left you feeling defenseless and weak under the scrutiny of
coffee eyes, depths uncertain and unknown.
You weren’t exactly sure how you
managed to find yourself in this predicament, hands held at the small
of your back, wrists overlapping each other as a much stronger hold
pinned you in place. You could feel the drumming of Hoseok’s
heartbeat against your shoulder, grip tightening around your skin as
you poorly attempted to gain back any control you once had, which
hadn’t been very much to begin with.
I’m in awe of Roxane Gay. If this collection had gone on forever I would never grow tired of it. It contains the depths of the human condition in all its darkness, loneliness, quirkiness and indecency.
These are stories about people (mostly women) seeking to fill their hollow spaces however they can. They’re gritty and direct and real and utterly devoid of sentimentality. Gay’s characters accept life for what it is—all its ugliness, all its complexity—and there’s something strangely refreshing and comforting about that.
The subject matter is demanding and unrelenting; this is not a happy collection, though it’s by no means maudlin. Being human isn’t pretty, but there’s beauty in that. If that statement resonates with you, so too will these fierce, gutting stories.

I know you are happy for the Klaroline endgame but don't think that it is sad that Caroline was the only vampire left? She will live for ever or at least get to live for a more extended time than humans do and she will see everyone she loves die. It has already started. Her father, her mother, her husband. She will outline her children too. How is that a good end for her?
How is it not?
Let me start by saying that despite JP’s obsession for turning TVD into a human soap this show was originally based into the vampire mythology. It is meant to deal with vampires and their existence. The pros and the cons and the darkness and the grandeur and the immortality. Ships and endgames aside Caroline Forbes ending up the only vampire in a show that is meant to be based on the vampire genre is an honor and a homage to everything this show once stood for. Every vampire of the show faced the same destiny you describe here. Damon, Stefan, Katherine, the Originals. And yet when their stories began and they were introduced to the audience everyone took in their story expecting to feel their age and get to know their ageless journey throughout the centuries. No one complained about their predicament. Everyone wanted to get more into it. Either their story was tragic, or intriguing, or dark, or hopeful. It was interesting because the very concept of immortality is an unachievable dream that intrigues humans. So many writers get to write for Vampires, Demons, Gods, Immortals, etc. Because their stories are enveloping every hope and aspiration and tragedy and epic emotion a human can have and dream of. The unreachable. The impossible. Even something to sent the human soul straight to damnation. All those elements hide greatness and misery in them. And Caroline Forbes was meant to endure and persevere and become a Vampire. She relished in her nature. She owned it. She accepted it and craved the perks that come with vampirism. She would not turn to a human if she had the chance. She never wanted or expressed that wish. For the simple reason that she likes been strong, ageless, fearlessand she prefers who she is not to the girl she used to be.
On the other hand everything you describe in your ask are things that can happen in a human life too. So what happens then? You give up? You curse your life? You find no meaning to it? A person can outline others and can outlive even love and memories and things he or she never thought possible. Calamities and tragedy are part of life either that life is meant to carry on for a few decades or longer or less. It is what we do with our time and how we face the things that happen to us that make life worth it. It is even how we stand in the face of loss and loniliness. How we grieve. How we move on. How we hope. How we persevere and if there was one motto that Caroline Forbes ever had in that show was perseverance.
That does not take away the importance of the things you write in the ask. If anything they give more meaning to Caroline’s existence because facing these losses will make her live every day to the fullest. Will make her wiser. Will make her not lose track of time. Will make life have meaning.
Do you know who else also contemplated the very same thing you ask me here? How eternity would have no meaning? How it would suck? How it would be a source of depression. How it would take away and take away and leave no meaning?
Caroline Forbes did. In her birthday in season 3.
So much so that she did not want to celebrate her birthday and ended up giving a funeral to the human girl she buried behind.
And do you remember who exactly showed her that very same day that while life takes something from you it gives you something else back? That there is meaning to found in forever. Because truth is that loss will come and you contemplate giving up.
And I could let you… die. If that`s what you want. If you really
believe your existence has no meaning.
I`ve thought about it myself once
or twice over the centuries, truth be told.”
And let us face it. Who doesn’t think of that in their lives? In our human lives fantasy aside have we never thought of that very same question? Of how to endure with loss? Of how to go on? Of how we can outlast the pain and not break? How to hold on to people that leave us behind or we lose them by death or any other reason? There is always a time even for the most optimistic people where they think that life has no meaning or ask themselves what is the meaning of it all.
So here Caroline’s immortality is a parallel to what we face in real life because art in its own way tries to give answers to such questions.
So what is the meaning of it all? How could Caroline ever move on and why should she want to? Why would that be good for her?
Because with the loss there is also the gain. Because life is not black or white. It has endless colors and twists.
Imagine that. Let it sink in. Life does not end with loss or with pain. This is why we are alive after all. There is whole world is out there still waiting. Genuine beauty. And music. And art. And more birthdays. More chances. More dreams. More potential. More possibilities.
A thousand more birthdays.
Because life does not end with loss and misfortune. You do not get to sacrifice your life in the name of loss or lost love or broken dreams. Life moves on. With endless possibilities ahead. With optimism. You grit your teeth and you move on until you can smile again. Life continues with pain and loss and tragedy and laughter and love and joy. Because every turn gives you something and it is in your hand to take that something and make something out of it. Something for you. And this is why people still dream of immortality and want to live longer and crave stories of ageless creatures. And admire those tragically and gloriously beautiful stories. Because life goes on and is full of wonder. And people can only wish to be able to be bigger than life. With everything that includes.
Time is unrelenting and brings change and with it society and culture and life itself alters and people want to be there to see it. To experience it. To live it. Because people reading history and get fascinated by it and then dream of the future. And Caroline Forbes will be there to live all that. Maybe she will outlive some people and maybe she will carry their memories with her but she won’t outlive everyone. Because she will get to meet more people. She has endless possibilities ahead. To love again. To laugh again. To be an extrovert. To be an introvert. To find more questions and answers. Endless horizons ahead and this is why Klaroline and the idea of a vampire Caroline Forbes was always so alluring to begin with and enchanted so many people. Because it held the promise of eternal. The promise of however long it takes. The promise of genuine beauty. Because it was brilliant and ugly and the truth and the lie and it was about brutal honesty and manipulation and rage and soothing silence and it was challenging and unpredictable. Just life is.
And how important is to actually be able to grasp that? And by that I mean life. To have nothing more to do than ask? Because this is what life is. It is your choice. It is as good as you let it. Because you need to want to live it. You need to want to ask. All you have to do is ask. And then take it step by step. Let me say it again. Life does not end with loss or grief. Emotion is not finite. Relationships come and go. Love can be replenished or be found in so many places even unexpected ones. Hope does not end. Meaning is always in different things all the time if you only open your eyes. Pain does not last forever no matter how cruel and unforgiving it seems at first. You fight back and you live. And all you have to do is ask.
And this is one of the many reasons why I personally like Klaroline so much and why their endgame was so
important for me. Because of this very message that you sent me. Because
Klaroline began with the very same core of question you put in that
ask. Their very first defining scene was about what you ask me here and it answers your question perfectly. And that was
why I was so moved by Klaroline chemistry and potential aside. Because
of the promise of endurance. Because it was a promise of how Caroline
could live and become greater than life and …loss. This is how it all
And this is how Caroline will move on because this has been her origin story and not the end. It is only the beginning. But that is the beginning of another story.
So you tell me anon? How is that good for Caroline? Or for anyone for that matter? How is it good for anyone to actually live their life? To find meaning in that kind of existence?
your art is so pretty and every time i see your fantasy iwaoi i just cry out of pure joy iwaizumi is just so so beautiful its like if I ever saw a fairy in real life I'd probably end up comparing them to your fairy king iwa and ah im so emotional rn thank you <3
Why do you love Arrow? (I'm the same anon who asked why you watch Arrow. Hint : While I love your gif responses it's your words that always hit me so hard so give me some words please Matty)
Oh, anon. Since you specifically wanted words, here you go. This is something I’ve said before and I’ll say it till my dying day.
I love Arrow.
Because this show has given me so, so much, I’m not certain I’ll ever be able to express it completely.
Arrow came into my life at a point when I was at my lowest. I was emotionally messed up in every way conceivable, everything had fallen apart, all at once. I’d shut down in real life and was barely coping. It was one big depressive fest. And it was dark. So, so dark.
And then Arrow happened.
I know it sounds cheesy - all this light and dark thing, but for me it was true. I have no idea why, but one day I was watching the show and it just clicked.
And for me, it was beautiful.
It gave me Oliver Queen, who inspired me deep down to my bones, who gave me the strength and the courage to keep moving forward no matter how bad things seemed, to believe that they’ll always get better, making me the silver lines chaser I am today. He gave me the will to keep fighting and I will love him till my dying day. (And he introduced me to the salmon ladder. That in itself earns him my love).
It gave me Felicity Smoak, who told me it was okay to be awkward, that being a hero and being good did not need a mask, that being a person completely comfortable in their strengths and a good heart was more important. She made me realize that a girl should take pride in her hard work and just be who she is, no matter what.
It gave me John Diggle, who honestly speaks words of wisdom to Oliver and I’m nodding my head vigorously. He told me that no matter what ugly things you see and live through, you can rise above them and not be it.
It made me believe in a love born true from the soul. It made me understand that family and friendships were made of heart and not blood. It made me believe in the strength of the spirit inside each and every one of us, no matter our circumstances. It told me that it doesn’t matter whether you’re a rich kid stranded on an island considered dead by the world; or if you were a soldier who’d lost his brother; or if you were a little girl abandoned by every man in your life; or if you were a pampered princess who finds out her entire life has been built on lies; or if you were a billionaire who’d lost his wife to street violence; or if you were a soldier in love with a woman who loved another man; or if you were a street kid with no family and nothing except this rage inside you that wouldn’t die; or if you were a normal man with money who’d lost his best friend and found him again, only to realize he was a liar and a murderer… it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are - what matters is how you respond to them. It’s your choice to become the villains of your own story, your choice to become the heroes. It’s on you if you want to drown the world in your pain or rise above it and make something beautiful of it.
It’s always your choice.
There could have been no greater villain than Oliver Queen had he made a choice. There could have been no force stopping Felicity Smoak from destroying the world at her fingers had she made a choice.
But they chose to be heroes, chose to rise above their pasts for a better future.
It’s so damn beautiful.
Over time, this gave me the courage to rise beyond mine slowly. To step into the fandom. I lurked around and stalked people mostly in the beginning (although it was never that creepy), and over time, one step at a time, I entered this crazy place and was just consumed by the sheer intensity of it.
I know these are fictional characters, but what they inspire in me is not fiction. It’s very, very real and living my life with these characters has made it so much richer.
Because it’s through this show that I’ve met so many beautiful people who make me smile every single day. It’s through this show that I’ve made friends I know are going to stay with me for a long time. It’s because of this that I can come back here on a bad day and leave with a huge grin on my face.
Because it’s this show and its characters who pushed me into finding the strength to put words on a screen. This show made me want to tell stories. It made me realize it was okay to share my thoughts and from being quiet, it’s made me evolve into someone confident enough in her thoughts to voice them. It has given me a tolerance for opinions and respect for choices, all the interactions with such varied people.
I’ve grown more over the last few years writing these characters than I have in my entire life. The changes it’s brought in me are almost tangible.
It made me want to write and write and write and just keep on writing and sharing so many stories.
It’s given me passion.
It’s given me perspective.
It’s given me understanding.
It’s given me strength.
But most importantly, it’s given me hope.
Hope. So hard to find. So hard to hold on to. So hard to let go of.
This show has consistently given me so much hope, for me.
And no matter which direction it goes in, I will always, always love Arrow and its characters for giving me so, so much when I had absolutely nothing.
I love Arrow, and I always will, for the person it’s made me so subtly over time.
it is officially 2 years since I first heard twenty one pilots, since I first saw fairly local on my dash and made one of the best decisions of my life: to hit play.
I’ve been struggling, I won’t lie about that. I wish I could say I’m getting better instead of worse. I wish I was happy, I wish I took care of my body more often, I wish I appreciated more of the little things, I wish I didn’t still spend most nights awake and emptily staring at the walls at 4am.
but I guess the important thing is, I’m still here. And I have the boys to thank for that, I have tyler and josh, even if they don’t know who I am. I owe them my life. I owe them for surviving countless nights spent in torment, now wondering “what if?”. what if I didn’t have their music? what if I didn’t have the wonderful people I met through this band to talk to? what if I didn’t have them to channel my thoughts into? what if..? would I still be here? that’s the question. am I happy about that? about still being here, fighting? maybe I will be one day. but for now I can take one day at a time and enjoy the few beautiful things this world has to offer, in between the heavy darkness. and I have tyler to thank for this, I have josh, michael, mark, brad, chris, nick, jenna, and so many others to thank. and I will never take that for granted. I will forever remember the times I’ve seen them live, when I realized they are real. I’m not alone. they exist. I’m sobbing thinking about it now, I miss being close to their radiating positivity, warm as the sun. so, once again, I put as much emotion into these two words as I can muster: thank you.
and you know what frens? stay alive. whatever your past, “know this: you can start over, each morning.” and that’s a beautiful thing.
p.s. happy birthday fairly local, the song that started not only the blurryface era but also this stage of my life. it’s great sharing this date with you.
So I finished 13 Reasons Why the other day, and i was thinking… Justin Foley and Alex Standall would make an amazing couple. So naturally I googled it. and OH MY HOLY CRAP THE ACTORS WHO PLAY JUSTIN AND ALEX ARE DATING IN REAL LIFE JESUS CHRIST HOW BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING AND PERFECT THEY ARE TOO PRECIOUS OKAY I’M DONE NOW THANK YOU GOODNIGHT
HC for the song So Good by zara laarson student jimin dating idol jungkook and feels insecure when he sees jungkook walking around filming with gorgeous models ,so jungkook writes a song for their anniversay and tricks jimin into filming a short clip for a 'project' for him but jimin finds out that it was all for him and the music video becomes viral and jimin becomes more confident/ knowing how much jungkook loves him (can u use the glitter scene from the start of the vid , soz its so long)
+ How Jimin and Jungkook actually started dating in a very funny way. They met over video game and then started dating in real life. Jimin still can’t believe that he is dating Jungkook.
+ Jimin smiles at every text message he gets but frowns over Jungkook’s music videos.
+ Jimin loves the songs and finds Jungkook super sexy, but all the models that are in there make him self conscious. They’re all so beautiful and tall while Jimin is just not.
+ Jungkook is good at reading people which is why he makes music so well for the general public, why he knew Jimin would be the best person to date during his crazy idol life, and also why he picks up on Jimin’s mood.
+ Jungkook figure this would happen, it’s normal actually. So Jungkook does everything he can to show Jimin he adores him and sees it works for a bit. But Jimin still goes down when Jungkook needs to work with beautiful models that don’t hide their attraction to Jungkook.
+ Jungkook was making music one night and got stuck. So he ended up going over photos of Jimin in his phone. Jungkook smiles over the picture he took when Jimin was sleeping in his studio over different school books.
+ Jungkook heart about burst, he was so in love with the elder. Jungkook prep his phone up so a slide show of pictures of Jimin would play while he works all night on the melody that was as magically as Jimin.
+ “Hey, can you do me a favor?” Jungkook asks Jimin one day while they snuggle on Jungkook’s couch. Jimin looks up.
+ “What is it?” “Would you film something with me?” “Me? Are you sure?” “I wouldn’t want to film with anyone else.”
+ Jungkook sets up a trip to Hawaii during Jimin’s spring break. They go for the week. Jungkook holds a camera the whole time filming Jimin.
+ “I thought you ment something professional!” Jimin giggles as Jungkook films him walking across the beach “this is professional!” “Whatever you say Kookie. But flim the sunset it’s beautiful!”
+ When their romantic vacation ends they head back and get busy, Jimin with finals and Jungkook with idol stuff. But they still text and find time to play games together.
+ Jimin woke up to his roommate screaming. Jimin gets up with a groan as he glares at Taehyung.
+ “YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU GOT SCOUTED FOR A MUSIC VIDEO JIMIN!?!?” “What are you talking about?”
+ Taehyung shows Jimin Jungkook’s new music video and he is in shock. The music video is a mixture of the stuff they film in Hawaii and Jungkook sitting down with a smile.
+ The song is romantic as hell and Jimin picks up words and phrases that are known only between them. Jimin feels his eyes tearing up as he smiles as Jungkook stares into the camera singing about him.
+ The music video goes viral and Jimin doesn’t care as he runs to Jungkook’s dorm to yell at him.
+ Jungkook smiles as Jimin keeps kissing him and tells him how much he loves him. Jungkook responds with his own and holds Jimin forever.
