Everyone always makes jokes about libras being unable to answer simple questions without knowing how the other person would answer first (that post where someone’s like “hey how are you” libra goes idk how are you? Person says fine and libra says Oh I’m fine too). Anyways I never really fully understood it until the other day I asked my libra dom (Mercury Venus 5h) friend if he liked crunchy or smooth peanut butter better, and I’ve never seen someone struggle so much with that question in my entire life LMAO he tried to get me to say what MY favorite was and I was like lmao no way I asked first! It literally took him at least 5 minutes to answer fjfjfjgiiffijffhfbb
That’s right, slaves. Stare at your Master’s feet. Feel yourselves becoming weaker before me. I know just how badly each and every one of you little slaves would give almost anything to be able to stick your pig-like snout in between my perfect toes. Inhaling the sweet, pungent aroma from one of my workouts.
These damp, black socks are too alluring, aren’t they, fag? I know how powerless they make you. Funny how easy it becomes to take your cash, sorry, MY cash.
Now I think its about time you start sending over some more. Your Lord is feeling greedy and, frankly, I’m never satisfied with what’s sent. There’s always room for improvement. Granted, some of you aren’t rich paypigs, but you can all make cut-backs in your everyday lives to aid the financial demands that MY superior, alpha-male lifestyle deserves. So, next time you send a tribute, just think to yourself: “how much would impress Lord Samuel?”.
Awakening Anders is a “good victim” DA2 Anders isn’t
It has always really bothered me when fans will say that they loved Anders in Awakening because of how “funny” and “sarcastic” he was, but hated him in DA2 because he was “whiny” and “he complains about mages too much”. I think it’s because they don’t want to accept that Anders is a mentally ill victim of abuse, and always has been.
Hear me out, in Awakening Anders is still bipolar, but if you don’t know what you’re looking for you’ll miss it. Its easy to pretend that he’s neurotypical. And sure, he talks about the circle but mostly he makes it into a joke. They don’t seem to realize that Anders is deeply traumatized, and he’s diminishing his suffering by making it into a joke, so he can process it. It’s actually canon that Anders WAS physically abused and beaten by the templars. When first meeting Anders in Awakening, if the warden takes the option “That’s inhumane!” Anders will gesture to Biff and say “That’s what he would call me every time he kicked me in the head, so I guess it’s pretty accurate”. He talks about his abuse as if its a funny joke. The warden is repeating rhetoric that Anders’ abusers spouted at him to justify abusing him, and he laughs about it. For me, a mentally ill person, I can identify this as a coping mechanism being used by a severely traumatized and mentally unwell person, but to the average neurotypical, its just “funny” and “sarcastic”.
Compare this to Anders talking about templar abuses in DA2, “it’s not about Uldred, it’s not about being beaten or raped by a templar - that does happen, but I’ve been fortunate. It’s a larger principle, the freedom every man woman and child born in Thedas has as a natural right”. In DA2, Anders doesn’t diminish his feelings on the abuses of the circles, he doesn’t make it into a joke, he’s justifiably angry about it, and he’s done pretending that he isn’t bothered by it. Of course, he did lie about not being beaten, but honestly, I don’t see Anders admitting something like that to Sebastian, especially to win an argument.
Anders really doesn’t bring up mage rights any more frequently in DA2 than in Awakening. In Awakening when you take Anders to the statue of Andraste, he does become introspective, and serious, but it’s prefaced by wolf-whistling at Andraste’s statue and calling her a looker. Fans completely ignore him getting worked up over the chantry’s misinterpretations of Andraste’s teachings “what would she have thought of the Circle of Magi - forcing mages to fight demons or be made tranquil?” and then “seems to me Andraste counseled men to seek their own path to the maker, but the chantry uses her words to collar us just for being who we are”. Instead they focus on the hilarity of Anders eyeing up a statue.
In Awakening, Anders is still bipolar of course, but he’s in a more stable mood, and seems to be more “fun” and “manic”, while in DA2, we see the uglier sides of his illness. He’s in a depressive state more often than not, and in Act 2 he dissociates during Dissent, and afterward he’s in a highly agitated mood. In Act 3, he’s so depressed that he begins to withdraw from his friends and he shows signs of suicide ideation. The negative reactions to DA2 Anders come off as highly ableist, because Anders is fine when he’s not actually showing symptoms.
So, Awakening Anders is a “good victim” and DA2 Anders is not. Awakening Anders hides behind humor and pretends to be OK, so the player doesn’t have to see the deep psychological trauma that he is suffering. His mental illness is less pronounced, and the player isn’t forced to face the uglier symptoms that come with his mental illness. In DA2 however, the pretense is gone. Anders is justifiably angry at the way the chantry operates, and all the abuses that he and other mages have suffered as a result. He’s not a “good victim” anymore, because he forces the player to see how upset he is, and how deeply his abuse has affected him.
1) Re: Wanda and her lack of redemption arc- One of the MCU's biggest fuck yous was that they allowed Zemo to apologize to T'challa for his Father's death as collateral in his revenge scheme, but didn't have the decency to allow Wanda to do the same to the Avengers for stripping them of their autonomy and using them to hurt other people (of which the primary victims were Tony and Bruce). If they wanted to redeem her and make her more sympathetic, they really should have allowed her
I’m really sorry that I didn’t answered this last night, nonny but it was very late here and I was on mobile.
1) Exactly. But honestly I like Zemo more than Wanda for that. They allowed him to apologise, but also they showed him not being so bat-shit hateful blaming all the evil on his life to the Avengers (just the death of his family) and he neither played the victim. Like Wanda did.
The problem with Wanda lays directly in her “tragic backstory”, I mean, just listening to it, it’s ridiculous:
This is a backstory that doesn’t work for an anti-villain/anti-hero to go straight up a hero. Because it’s illogical. The audience that has a minimal knowledge of how the world works knows that blaming the person that made the weapon is stupid an illogical.
Second part of the ask:
2) to make real amends to her primary victims. Also, having her sit and talk to Tony about her anger against the American military industrial complex (which was what killed her parents) and how she conflated that with Stark. She has serious trauma that needs to be laid out. I mean, Tony could have talked about how he too realized the faults in the MID and is trying to make amends for his ignorance and inaction. How it has led him to believe in accountability and checks and balances
3) LIKE THE FUCKING ACCORDS. It would have been 10x better than Steve’s convo w/ her in the beginning of Civil War, where he treats her unintentional murder of 12 ppl as a small hiccup that can be corrected w/ “try try again”. But no, all we end up w/ is a character marketed as a child half the time, and an adult the other half. It’s character assassination and it sucks. Either show her struggle w/ redemption and accountability as a member of the Avengers, or keep her a villain.
The problem here nonny, it’s that the dynamics are terribly flawed and bad placed. With Wanda, her deed of joining the Avengers it was not for goodness, it’s was common sense and self-preservation. We never see her re-thinking about Tony or showing a single little remorse about hurting him, neither she seems to want to stop and think about the situation. Tony talking to her would have required she trying to go closer and talk but to the first moment that we see her on screen with him her intention are clearly hostile:
Look at the corporal language of this part. This is a hero? No.
This is an anti-hero? No.
This is someone who is conflict?
I dare say: no.
The point about anti-heroes and anti-villains is they know, very deep in them, they have a doubt, a conflict. Wanda doesn’t. She knows what she is doing. She knows that she is hurting someone and she knows what she did. Take a look to Bruce too:
Also take her reaction when he calls her out for mindfucking him:
Her expression seems to be the one of someone who regrets her bad deeds.
Her face hardens when he threatens her and she doesn’t speak about the topic again. Not with him, not with Clint in their oh so marvellous pep talk.
Someone that answered one of my posts said that showing Wanda’s struggles were that ridiculous scene whit with her crying in front of Clint, so the audience have to see her as a poor misunderstood child that was very scared and didn’t know what she was doing…
That’s not how it works!
Wanda should have showed struggle and conflict since the beginning of the movie! She should have interacted with people that she hurt as you said but she didn’t!
And before somebody says something…
Clint doesn’t count! Steve doesn’t count!
Clint was not attacked by Wanda, he didn’t suffered in her hands. Steve? He forgave her at the instant. He attacked his armour-less teammate because of her word. He told Natasha, one of Wanda’s victims “she with us”, like she hadn’t some right of feeling uncomfortable by her presence!
They don’t count!
The base, the point for an anti villain to be redeemed and made an ally or friend in front of their enemies is the interaction and and the villain admitting that they hurt the protagonists. It’s simple, take Regina Mills in Once Upon A Time. She never became in a full hero but she earned trust by admitting her bad deeds. She showed struggle and doubt. She became a wondeful anti-hero Wanda didn’t.
Just look at the moment when she decides to side with the Avengers:
What choice do we have?
This is someone that learned form her mistakes. No.
This is somebody that wants to fucking live. She wants to keep herself and her brother alive. There’s no doubt here. Not struggle in the loyalties. No conflict! She switched sides in the beginning and she does it again because it’s convenient for her. Not for goodness or anything that changes that she hurt people during all the movie!
She doesn’t doubt for a fucking instant to go to the “winning side”:
What kind of anti-hero can you get of that?
Which leads to CW. You said that she siding with Tony would have been the better, and yes, it would have been a good character development she being remorseful and keeping her initial supposed believes about accountability but with motherfucking Johannesburg, how it’s that possible?
Like, that’s what the Russo and M&M tried to to do and failed miserably. They tried to sell us an anti-hero. They washed her awful deeds and make her look as conflicted when she never hesitated at the beginning.
They tried to us to believe that she can’t control her powers.
And just bullshit.
They also made her clothes more clear, her hair too. Miss Elizabeth was wearing a wig, it was not difficult have one as her hair was in the previous movie.
They tried to vanish the darkness of her. Why? Because it its more difficult present a redemption for villain than a anti-hero. Or as that idiotic writers seem to think: that poor kid that did no wrong.
Because it was more easy to forgive this:
So, they invented this new Wanda, and put all the blame in Tony’s shoulders. The funny thing it’s that the audience it’s stupid enough to believe it. That might talk about the power of the female characters of being forgiven for everything as long they have a pretty face and a delicate body.
Even if it’s a character without struggles or good intentions, or remorse.
So, nonny, my opinion is firm. Wanda Maximoff’s redemption arc was a fuck you because she didn’t deserved or needed one.
Oh my gosh, the newest ddadds post! Identity porn at it's finest! But, ouch, that could be really messy if they don't figure it out fast enough. Or funny, depending on how the react. Amanda and Lucien should find it hilarious, either way, if I'm reading the characters right.
XDD Yeah, in case anyone hasn’t figured it out yet, I’m always a slut for identity porn :P
Anyways yeah, given the two of them had dated for quite a while (3-4 years at least) when they were in college, I don’t think it would take them too long to figure it out.
It starts off slow, with small things that are easy to overlook.
When Damien falls into step so easily with the shorter MC, adjusting his pace without even having to think about it.
When MC knows exactly how close Damien is to losing his temper from the tilt of his lips and the harshness of his hand gestures.
When they share subtle little inside jokes without even thinking about it, and the moment is over so fast and they’re moving onto other topics before either of them has enough time to realize that the other shouldn’t have understood what the joke was.
They can anticipate each other’s thoughts and gestures so easily-
(”We were meant for each other!” Damien gushes to Mary one day. “It feels like I’ve known him for years and years!”)
-but it’s still just different enough that it neither of them get suspicious at first. Because people change so much in ten years, even when the most important parts stay the same.
MC ends up being the first one to figure it out.
It starts off innocuous enough.
MC is staring at Damien one day, marveling at how handsome he is. He absently reaches out to brush back a lock of Damien’s long, silky hair, and is amused to see a beauty mark dead center of his earlobe.
‘It’s like an earring,’ he thinks with amusement, only to stop short at how jarringly familiar that thought is.
Before he can remember what exactly is familiar about it, Damien lets out a confused little squeak, and MC turns to see the most endearingly befuddled expression on his face, his cheeks as red as cherries.
MC immediately forgets the strange thought as he leans in close and kisses Damien for the ‘first’ time.
The two start dating after that, and they’re perfectly happy for that first week.
Mary babysits Amanda and Lucien for them sometimes so they can go on dates.
MC tells Damien about his late husband, Alex, who had passed away two years prior.
And Damien tells MC about his first girlfriend - the sweetest girl he’d ever met, with eyes like forgetmenots and hair like a blazing fire; with arms as warm as a mother’s embrace and laughter like the most beautiful song. He tells MC how he’d thought he would marry her one day. Until he’d found out she’d been cheating on him for months.
MC stops short, because there’s something so painfully familiar about that story. Maybe something that had happened to a friend of his? But the ending doesn’t quite seem to fit right with the image he has in his head.
He tries so hard to remember why it’s so important, but he draws a blank.
In the end, he’s distracted by wandering fingers along his ribs, and breathless laughter as he tries to escape from the tickling.
And finally, the last piece falls into place the day he and Damien are watching a movie together in a dark living room, long after the kids have fallen to sleep.
MC notices that Damien just can’t seem to get comfortable, and when he asks wrong, Damien thinks for a long, long moment, as if he were deliberating a very important topic.
Finally, he explains in a quiet voice, “My binder is just bothering me a bit.”
It takes a moment for MC to process what he had said, and when he does, the reality of the situation finally sets in, and he sees the whole picture for the first time with a startling clarity.
He jumps back off the sofa as if he’d been stung, and falls to the floor with an ungraceful thump.
Damien, completely misunderstanding the reaction, looks like he’s about to cry.
Because he just knew this was coming. He just knew that sweet, beautiful, loving MC would leave him eventually, just like all the others had. It’s why he’d kept it a secret all this time.
“I’m sorry,” he sobs. “I know I should have told you sooner, but-”
“You knew?” asks MC, completely misunderstanding the situation. “Why didn’t you say anything?”
And is slightly confused, because obviously he knew he was trans. What kind of question is that?
He starts crying harder. “I’m sorry!” he sobs. “I was going to tell you! It’s just, so many of the men I’ve dated in the past have reacted badly when they found out I was trans and I was scared that-”
“What?” asks MC, confused. “I’m not upset about you being trans! So am I. What I-”
But Damien cuts him off, the tears immediately stopping.
“Wait, you’re trans too??” he asks.
And now they’re both confused as all hell.
Then, MC gasps.
“Holy shit, you don’t know…” he says.
Damien slowly shakes his head, wondering what it is he doesn’t know.
MC gets up and approaches him slowly, as if he’s a small, frightened animal.
He takes Damien’s hand gently in one of his own.
“You’re my Dahlia, aren’t you?” he asks.
And suddenly, Damien stops breathing as all the details fall into place, and he recognizes the man sitting in front of him.
It takes them several long hours to get things sorted after that.
They talk long into the night, about what had happened between them all those years ago. And by the time the sun has risen, they’ve laid all the bad blood to rest, and their relationship has come out the other side stronger than it ever was before.
They tell the story of their reunion to all their friends after that - it becomes one of those funny little anecdotes that everyone begs to hear at family gatherings and backyard barbecues, and they all laugh over the absurdity of it.
And despite how horribly confusing and messy it had been for the two of them, Damien and MC are always so grateful that they’d been lucky enough to get the opportunity to fall in love with each other all over again, and to sort out the horrible misunderstanding that had torn them apart in the first place.
yES you can never have too many imagine blogs my friend. good luck! how about some good old relationship headcanons for the hosts to start you off?
Ahhh yes our first ask! Lets do this.
We have way more than this but in the interest of being vague and encouraging future asks about this we’ll keep it short >:] Even so it still ended up being really long hahh ah ah…. oops.
This boy is all about that PDA. Kisses, hand holding, arm constantly hooked around your waist, clinging to you in tears when somebody is blunt with him, the whole shebang.
Part of it comes from his natural need to be princely, but mostly he really just wants to make it clear to the world that he’s dating you. Not in a jealous way but in a ‘wow everyone look at me and my beautiful s/o plz look at us PLE ASE’ because the only thing Tamaki loves more than attention is you.
Two words. Pet names. It doesn’t matter what gender you identify as, you cannot escape his dumb clichéd adorable pet names. Darling, my sweet, prince/princess, beautiful etc.
There is no stopping him.
Don’t even try.
Don’t get mad when he continues to make googly eyes at the girls who come to the host club though. As Tamaki’s s/o you’re gonna have to swallow that jealousy because he is STILL a host and he loves being one. You cannot take him away from that, but rest assured that while he does genuinely think every one of his customers at the host club is beautiful, he tells you every day how phenomenal you are, and how he could never replace you.
(the kisses he gives you after hosting are totally worth it don’t worry)
While Haruhi seems at first to be as laid back in this relationship as she is about everything else in her life, on the inside she’s actually quite nervous about the whole thing.
That doesn’t mean that she doesn’t know what she’s doing, however, so while she always manages to choose the exact right moment to grab your hand or comment on how nice you look today, if you manage to stop your swooning for a moment to get a good look at her face you’ll see a blush absolutely CAKING it.
its rly cute.
Haruhi LISTENS. And she always makes an effort, so if you make an off hand comment about how much you liked those bagels in the cafe you just ate lunch in, or how long its been since you’ve gone to the park, don’t be surprised if she invites you out for a picnic there or shows up at your house with a container full of bagels she made herself.
She won’t admit it, but she really likes it when you stroke her hair and run your fingers through it. It helps her relax.
Please kiss her all the time it iS WORTH IT trust me.
He gets jealous so incredibly easy its not even funny sometimes.
Of course this means that while it is awfully tempting to tease him about it you have to be careful not to overdo it because otherwise he will stomp off in a huff and not come back until either A) he finishes sulking or B) Haruhi knocks him upside the head.
Don’t worry too much though, this display of over-dramatic anger often results in an over-dramatic makeout make up session.
Because of the whole jealousy thing he, like Tamaki, has a tendency to make it clear that you are dating him at all times (partly to reassure himself that you’re still there because tbh while he acts super suave on the surface he is still kind of reeling from the fact that this is happening AN D WOW HIKARU we all knew it you’re just a giant dorky puppy)
Your first kiss (much to his despair) is actually quite sloppy because he thinks he’s a much better kisser than he is, and while he tries to play it off casually you can tell it bothers him and you kind of have to reassure him that its fine stud, it takes practise after all, you’ll get better!!
(and believe me he does get better w h o a h)
He is also a big fan of public teasing eyyooooo
This rapscallion is well aware that many people are in love with his voice and thus takes any opportunity to whisper in your ear at the most inopportune times, just to see you squirm. ass
He doesn’t actually get jealous very often, unlike his brother, and is more afraid of the general possibility of you breaking up with him, but he hides this just as well as he hides all his fears regarding change.
He has a sixth sense for when you’re feeling under the weather, and while he doesn’t always know what to say, he always manages to be a comforting presence and he’s a very good guy to vent to.
He tends to be a bit overbearing at times and something of a mother hen in that he is constantly asking you about your well being (sometimes in a bit of a condescending manner) but if you tell him you need your space for a while he will try to respect it and leave you alone for the weekend
(’As long as I get one last kiss before I go, that is.’)
whoah boy does that leave you dizzy
he still texts you all weekend but hey he’s not on your doorstep demanding attention so it counts
Kyoya has a tendency to overspend on your dates.
Like. A lot.
‘kyoya when i said i wanted to go to disneyland i dIDN’T MEAN I WANTED YOU TO BUY OUT DISNEYLAND’
Okay maybe not exactly but he sure doesn’t scrounge on anything like wow Kyoya I thought you wanted to have lots of money please stop acting like you PISS THE STUFF.
(he probably does tho)
But seriously its actually kind of a big thing for him because you’re the only thing he ever really lets himself go overboard for and its all part of his long spiritual journey to getting that stick out of his ass.
He’s not much for PDA but he has a tendency to squeeze your shoulder whenever he walks past you and he doesn’t even seem to realise he does it most of the time, but if you feel something squeeze your shoulder y’all don’t even need to look up to know that your boyfriend has walked past on his way to ruin somebody’s financial life.
PS. being Kyoya’s s/o means that you are now both co-demon lords of the host club enjoy your new found power.
Alright ya’ll probably guessed this but a date with Honey is a date with cake. There is no escaping the sugar. Ever.
Honey is really insistent on you guys feeding each other. He thinks its cute and a great way to show affection and it doesn’t matter how public of a place you’re in he will always insist on spooning cake into your mouth.
He also has a habit of kissing or licking the crumbs off your face and is very amused if you get embarrassed (’Awww ____-chan, you look so cute though!’)
He really loves it when you call him by his first name when you two are alone together (and he is not afraid to tell you or show you)
Cheek kisses and koala hugs all around. Good luck detaching him.
Mori is now your bodyguard and you have him and your tiny boyfriend to knock out anyone giving you a hard time.
Mori, if it wasn’t obvious, definitely prefers to show his affection physically rather than verbally, but on the other hand I wouldn’t expect too much PDA from this gentle giant.
He prefers more subtle gestures, like always making sure he’s standing close to you, squeezing your shoulder or hand before he leaves.
That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t like YOU initiating the PDA, however. He’s used to Honey being affectionate in public, and while he may not return that kiss you planted on his cheek that doesn’t mean that it didn’t send his heart THUMP THUMP THUMPING.
He likes low-key dates. If you take him out for a park picnic or stargazing or a dinner at yours, the soft atmosphere will get him talking eventually.
And once he starts talking, he TALKS. You guys often end up staying up all night just murmuring softly to each other and just w ow its really relaxing he is really relaxing and he makes you feel safe okay.
Prepare for Honey to shower you with affection as well he and Mori are kind of a package deal okay cool
Multiplayer fun with Jack, Ken and Mark! This game is even more fun with more people. I love doing multiplayer videos, because its not so much trying to be entertaining, its just us having fun playing.
THE WHOLE EPISODE 2 OF WALKING DEAD MICHONNE, DAMN THATS LIKE 1 AND A HALF HOUR PEWDS! I KNOW!!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE: ME PLAYING WITH THE HTC VIVE.
The reaction to this video from you bros was very unexpected to be honest.It’s either “THIS VIDEO IS THE FUNNIEST SHIT” or “WTF, THIS IS SO WEIRD I CANT ENJOY IT”.Personally I think its “THIS IS THE FUNNIEST SHIT”, ya’ll should know to expect this channel is weird by now…
Quantum break is fucking cool, you bros should definitely check out this series. It’s probably the best xbox title we have seen so far.
Scare PewDiePie ends with episode 10.
I was actually legit pissed when I realized it wasnt a party because there was so much drama in the show and I just wanted to chill with all the people I filmed with. Either way, I had the time of my life filming this show and just wanna say HUGE thanks to everyone who supported this show!But even bigger thanks to everyone who worked on it!
Also uploaded Dark Souls Part 3, it might seem like a throw away since I uploaded 3 episodes, but I put so much fucking time on editing this. People always say for some reason “I’m only motivated by money”. But these type of videos takes 20x times more to make rather then say…. the quantum break episode. But the quantum break episode still gives me 2x as much ad revenue. I love Dark Souls and I love editing them and I love sharing these episodes with you bros; please watch them!
Slither.io, this is the kinda game I knew it was gonna get popular on YouTube. Aaaaaand what do you know? - Everyone is playing it now!I love the edits in this video, some say the Paul Walker part was offensive. To me it was just about me and Vin Diesel, but either way its a great video in my opinion.
FRIDAYS WITH PEWDIEPIE ON A FRIDAY WTF THIS IS BIGGER THAN WINNING THE LOTTERY!!!I thought Id bring you bros along on a regular day of my life, you bros really seem to like vlogs AND THEY ARE SO EASY TO MAKE.. IF VLOGGERS EVER COMPLAIN ABOUT “UH TOO MUCH EFFORT MAKE DA VIDEO” TELL EM THEY ARE A POOPY FACE CAUSE THEY STIRAGHT U PBE PALINYYIOFASFNIAIFNAINSFIANSF".
I didnt realize it was so weird until I watched it.I dont know why I thought: “hey making a video where I just try out facemasks, thats a great idea, right?"It actually turned out very funny, but I think most people are still freaked out by the body suit I wore.
FUNNY STORY TIME.
I bought that suit in Japan, it wasnt actually for sale it was just displayed on a manikin. I had to ask for it and they first said no, but I managed to somehow convince them despite the language barrier. LOL
And hey! Another quantum break!
Im writing these post so you bros get an idea how much thought and time goes into making videos each week. Not to pry on it, but also because Im proud of the work and I want you bros to watch it with a bit of perspective I guess.
If you guys are looking for a good starter book for the American Revolution, The Real History of the American Revolution by Alan Axelrod is a good summary of the war, it’s background, and the major battles. It hits the major points of the war without going into too much depth. It’s layout is sort of like a textbook with lots of pictures in the text and blurbs about individual characters off to the side which is nice to break up the monotony. The writing style is less academic and more casual and straightforward which makes it an easy read if you’re just looking for an overview. So far, it’s the best quick-read description of the war that I’ve read.
Hi! So I'm kinda new to the phandom even if I grew up watching the show. All over tumblr there's beautiful artwork of really sad and angsty stuff and here I am going, "That some good shit. Good shit right there. Yes, I need more." But AO3 doesn't really give me any GOOD Phandom angst and I dare not tread the hazards of FF.N by myself so do you have any stories to offer? Or even just advice on how to work FF.N like a bitch?
heres a list of my fic recs to get you started (and by started I mean it will probably take you like a year to read all these????? lmao good luck)
Bucky Barnes was the
best and worst thing to happen to you. The best part about him was that
he was in marching band with you and you got to see him everyday. The
worst part was that he was an annoying piece of shit. You were panting
out of breath as the crowd clapped after the marching band’s
performance. Bucky was lead snare and you were captain of the colour
guard, he was always bragging on how easy colour guard was and how
anyone could do it.
You and Joe are best friends since forever, but you fell in love with him. He doesn’t know. ————————————————————————————
„Y/N!!!“, Joe slurred in my ear, nearly spilling the rest of his drink over my outfit. He was drunk and I knew we should be taking a ride home soon, but the night was still young. „Where is the girl you’ve been drooling all over for the past hour?“, I asked him and steadied his stance by grabbing his elbow. He just shrugged and leaned into my touch. He was a cute drunk and I loved how touchy he got. It made me feel all warm und bubbly. „Y/N? I wanna dance.“ „With who?“ „With somebody.“ „.. Somebody who loves me?“ He laughed at the reference and nodded. „Yeah. Somebody who looooves me.“ „Alright. I’m searching for Casper, you stay here.“ But he grabbed both of my elbows and looked me drunkenly in the eyes. His blue eyes where locked with mine and I couldn’t move. He’s so beautiful. „NO! Stay. I wanna dance with you.“ „So you think I love you?“ „Nope. I know you do.“ Was it that obvious? Why didn’t he tell me earlier? I was shocked. „But… how do-?“ „Eeeeeverybody loves me.“ I tried to calm my heartbeat down by laughing. That was close. I knew I had to tell him eventually, but I was scared, that it would ruin our friendship. We were best friends since forever and I wouldn’t want that to end. He was the one person I trusted with my whole life. The one person I could rely on. Even when the whole youtube thing started, he never cut me off. He just respects that I don’t wanna be a part of it and never vlogs when I’m around. He always worries about me and makes sure I’m fine. I feel loved around him, I can be myself without worrying what he might think of me. That’s all I’ve ever looked for in a boy. It took me nearly 16 years and a couple horrendous relationships to realize that and it will take me the same amount of time to tell him the truth. „Not everybody, Joe. You’re becoming cocky, are you?“ „Well, you’re my best friend so you have to love me.“ „I have to? Wow, Joe, you clearly understand the whole friendship thing“, laughing, I grabbed his hands and began to dance. I swirled him around and made it playful to create some space between us. It was difficult to control my heartbeat when he‘s so close to me. After a while I was getting thirsty, so I made my way through the crowd to the bar. Everyone was drunk and sweaty and I was getting a headache. As I reached the bar, I ordered two bottles of water for both of us and leaned against the counter as I waited for them. „Y/N?“ How come that every time I just wanna have fun, someone or something will come around to ruin everything. I sighed and drew my attention to the person who called me. It was Brat. My Ex. „Brat. What are you doing here?“ I was absolutely not in the mood to talk to him. My head was pounding and my throat was dry and I was so ready for bed. “Partying. With whom are you here? Girl’s night?” Joe was one of the reasons we’d fight. He was so jealous, that I eventually just hid it from him everytime I met up with Joe. “No, it’s not a girl’s night tonight, I’m here with-“ “Me”, Joe interrupted me and securely wrapped an arm around me. “Joe.”, he clearly was surprised but he quickly recovered. “So now it’s you two?” I looked at Joe, waiting for him to answer. He winked at me and turned towards Brat, never leaving my side. “Yup. You were right, there was always more than friendship between us. You made her realize that. Thank you, mate. I thought I never get the chance.” And with that, he pulled me closer and kissed me on the mouth. I couldn’t breathe. The whole world faded around us and it was just us. As he pulled away, there was a soft smile spread across his face that made my heart race. I knew it was just for the show, but it felt so right. The butterflies in my stomach wouldn’t stop flying. “Well, I’m glad you found eachother”, Brat said bitterly, waved goodbye and disappeared in the crowd. Joe began to laugh “That was easy. He was so pissed, did you see that? Oh man, his face. I can’t.” But I couldn’t laugh. My heart dropped, as I realized, that he really didn’t feel anything. I grabbed the two bottles of water and handed him one. “Yeah. Funny, huh?” But the smile I forced myself to smile clearly missed its purpose. Joe became serious. “You okay? The kiss wasn’t too much, was it? I shouldn’t have kissed you just like that. I mean… we’re best friends. We’re JUST best friends. I’m sorry.” “It’s okay, Joe. Can we just go home, please. I’m tired.” Joe nodded and guided me through the crowd out of the club, to call a taxi. “You okay? Look, I’m sorry, Y/N. It was dumb. Please don’t be mad at me. I love you.” How could I be mad? How? He kissed me and that was all I ever wanted. “I’m not mad, Joe. It was funny. The face he pulled I mean. He really believed we were dating”, I tried to play along and hoped that he’d buy it. “Yeah, funny, wasn’t it? Everyone seems to believe it. I mean, even Zoe asked me multiple times, if you were my girlfriend. We just love us too much”, he chuckled. Well, his dad must have seen the way I look at him. The taxi came and we drove to his apartment. The ride was quiet, I nearly fell asleep, but my thoughts were running a mile per second. Joe looked at me with thoughtful eyes, he must’ve sensed that something was off. We entered his apartment and I sighed. “I’m sorry, Joe. I’m just really tired.” “It’s alright…” But it wasn’t. I saw it in his eyes and felt it in his words and in my heart and everything was a fucking mess. “You know, I’m really sorry for kissing you. It wasn’t my place to make that decision.” “Well, haven’t you kissed me, I never would have known how right it feels.” I even shocked me, when I said that. Quickly I turned around, shrugged off my coat, slipped out of my shoes, ran up the stairs and locked myself in the bathroom. How stupid can anyone be? I probably ruined 16 years of friendship in 2 seconds. I showered for what felt like forever, to get my head clear. When I came out of the bathroom, everything was quiet. Joe probably just went to bed. I made my way to the second bedroom, where I stayed in and closed the door behind me. It wouldn’t be awkward until the next morning. But I couldn’t sleep. My brain was taking me to the worst places, where Joe would tell me he hates me, because I fell for him and I’d be alone. I never felt so lonely, I was afraid of getting my heart broken big time. I knew, that it would take a long time to recover from that. I was counting sheep to make me fall asleep, when I heard a soft knock at the door. “Y/N? You still awake?” I nodded, remembered it was dark and answered. “Yes.” “May I come in?” “Yes.” I heard Joe’s foodsteps on the wooden floor until he reached the bed. “Fancy a cuddle?” He laid down and spread his arms for me. It was okay. We were okay. I laid by his side and wrapped an arm around his waist. “Why did you run away from me? I couldn’t answer.” I froze. Maybe we weren’t okay after all. “I don’t think I wanna hear the answer to be honest.” “Maybe you can’t hear the answer.” And with that he leaned down and kissed me. It took about a second for me to kiss him back. I swear in that moment I saw fireworks. “But… I mean… how..” I was speechless. “When I was little I told my Dad I wanted you to fall in love with me so you would never leave me. But my Dad said that I had to give you time. Well, my dad was right. It just took me 16 years to make you fall in love with me.” We laughed. “It just took me 16 years to realize I was in love with you.” “Well, I’m glad you realized that at all.” “Yeah. Yeah, me too.” And with that I pulled him in for another kiss. ————————————————————————– A/N: Sooo, what do you think about my first imagine? Hope you liked it. More to come soon. Love, Kat .xx
Feeling guilty when you have freedom and you don’t know what to do
At a friends house and feeling guilty because they’re doing dishes and you’re not and you should be helping
Going shopping and being hyper-aware of what your parents would approve of
The dilemma of going out with friends but having to lie to go but if you lie you know you’ll get caught so is it worth it
Parties aren’t a thing in your world?
“You dress so conservative” hahaha yeah my parents have to approve my clothes.
Having anxiety when you hang out with friends and they do something bad you didn’t know about
Going to concerts and having a panic attack that you’ll get grounded because you’ll smell like pot even though you weren’t smoking
having an anxiety attack because you didn’t get all your chores done well enough before your parents come home
#growingupwithstrictparents isn’t great. My parents have to approve what I wear, approve my friends, and ground me for frivolous things. I can’t hang out with neighbors or babysit without having to know who will be there what time they’ll be gone when they’ll be back where they’re going what I plan on doing and where I’ll be among more. I’ll have anxiety attacks because no matter how well I do my chores it never seems to be enough. And the expectation of straight A’s every semester and dissapointment when I don’t. Dissapointment when I get some A’s but they’re not as high as they could be. (I got a 98% in acting studies and got grounded because it’s not as high of an A as it could be because it’s an easy class)
Growing up with strict parents sucks. It harms your self esteem, self worth, mental health, makes you question your choices for everything as menial as a shirt. Constantly doubting yourself and worrying about everything. So please stop making it just a funny hashtag.
Yeah, a lot of parents are less strict than mine. But it’s not funny how harmful that level of control can be.
