its a teenage thing

Let’s talk about Dustin.

They could’ve easily made him the stereotypical “chubby friend” who just loves food, says dumb things for comedic effect, and is one who gets picked on by the rest of his friends.  This trope is so common in films about groups of young friends, guys or girls, mostly young and high school aged.  But they didn’t do that.

This kid is smart.  He has an imagination.  He’s open to all possibilities.  He’s observant - he’s the one who noticed the compasses.  

Yeah he brought food for their excursion, but not because he’s obsessed with it or he brought it all for himself.  He was being logical.  If they were gone for a while or doing anything strenuous, yeah they’d need energy.  Candy, chips, fruit, and trail mix.  

The only thing he gets made fun of for is his lack of front teeth, and it’s only by the two bullies at school.  His friends aren’t “pity friends”.  

tl;dr Dustin is the most beautiful little cinnamon roll

If there’s a bison miraculous it should go to Kim, just saying… cause he’s bi and he’s my son

It’s you. It is fucking you. I cannot describe it anymore, it is you. You are the only one that I will ever want. I belong with you. You are my home. I look at you, and somehow I can see 50 years from now on the front porch of some old house in the middle of nowhere and we’re together. I need you. You are the only thing that matters. You are my good.

life update: FINALLY SAW MOONLIGHT AND IT WAS SO MUCH

does anyone ever consider the impact ozai’s death would have on zuko, and not aang? i’ve read countless metas on the ‘aang killing ozai’ debacle, but what about zuko? less than several months before sozin’s comet, he was desperate to be back in his father’s good graces; zuko truly thought that ozai could restore his honour. he wholeheartedly believed that ozai’s treatment of him was just, fair, and conjucive to creating an ‘honourable’ person.

we know that zuko’s opinion of his father takes a 180, but ozai will always be zuko’s father. why do we expect him to completely bury the inevitable bond he has with his own blood, while we sympathise with the Avatar, who refuses to carry out his duty by defeating this warmongering stranger?

zuko’s opinion on the whole ‘let’s-kill-my-dad’ debate is likely far more layered than we see, but he is selfless enough to understand that the killing of his father will restore peace and balance in the world. still, i rarely see people sympathising with zuko’s lot regarding his father’s hypoethetical death

I act like everything is fine. I laugh at people’s jokes, I smile, I do things with my friends, and I act like I have a carefree life.

Here’s what people don’t know..

When I come back home, I just turn off that mental switch. Then suddenly I break down. I feel alone, empty, tired. I can’t exactly put how I feel into words. It’s like I have two different me’s. One for the public, and one for myself. Only if they knew. Only if..

ISTG ONE MORE PERSON MENTION JUNGKOOKS ACNE! IT'S A NORMAL TEENAGE THING! ITS NOT EVEN THAT BAD

YOU WANNA KNOW BAD!!!

I HAVE A ZIT RIGHT UNDER MY EYE THE SIZE OF A FREAKING PLANET MAN!!! ITS SO BIG UNDER THE SKIN IT SWELLED UP MY UNDER EYE BAG!!!!! AND ITS SAGGING


ITS A TEEN THING FAM!!!! AND IT MAKES THEM EVEN MORE PERFECT!!!!


WHEN I WOKE UP THIS MORNING MY MOM WAS LIKE “WELL CRAP DID SOMONE PUNCH YOU!” NO MOM ITS A GIANT PIMPLE THE SIZE OF NEPTUNE!!!!!!

A physiologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she asked “how heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. she replied “the absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes. The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. If you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed, incapable of doing anything.”

Put the glass down.

gwourtney? I know its a popular ship but I also totally understand why anyone wouldn't like it

( rate the character/ship. )

Alright, this one’s special, so I’ve gotta diverge on my usual scoring methods a bit:

As they are in canon: 6.
As they are post-canon/in general: 8.

I wanted to see the two of them interact a lot more than what we actually get. The sad thing is, the set-up for a series-spanning dynamic is right there! World Tour up until Duncan they’re slowly finding their feet with each other, having not really been friendly the previous seasons but brought together by the circumstances of Team Amazon’s dynamic and a mutual distrust of Heather, as well as, well, giving a shit about Duncan. Post-Kiss in London, their little mini-arc does kind of intrude upon a lot of the plot, but I can forgive it somewhat because it sets up things for All-Stars.

But, ooooh geez. All-Stars.

For as many cute moments as they have– and they are one of my favorite parts about that season!– god, are they not given the proper time to both reconcile and breathe and just talk without either Courtney getting hurt or Gwen getting lauded for hurting her. And, of course, there’s the turnaround and “betrayal” but honestly that wasn’t much of a shock (to me) mostly because I felt the entire thing was too good to be true. TD can’t not milk the love triangle drama for all it’s worth. And, honestly, while I find parts of it insufferable and for the longest time it did sour my opinion of all three characters, lately I’ve become pretty sweet on all three of ‘em and so I just end up mad that All-Stars wasn’t a little longer because, even if the rotten parts were there, the time to actually fix those parts would’ve been there, too.

So, yeah. I really like the idea of Gwourtney. I like how different they are, but not so different connecting is impossible. I think their temperaments actually compliment one another. I love it when they get along in canon. But, as they exist within the canon, I do think their arc in All-Stars is just, rushed and a little off.

Love the concept. Actually it’s my favorite ship for the both of them, I think! But I don’t think their interactions were written the best. Good thing we’ve got fanworks and a multitude of cute art and I want to believe in all my heart post-AS they can finally reach an understanding because, god damn it, they deserve a little happiness.

anonymous asked:

What were you like in your teenage years Marco?

“If you ask Oyaji, then most likely a brat, yoi..” Marco answered with a chuckle as he thought back to his young-self with a small smile gracing his full lips. Even if he had struggled in his teenage years, far more than most teenagers had to, the phoenix also had fond memories, like when he had learned what exactly love was and how tender and wonderfully warm it was. And that it were something he had deserved, never mind what he had thought before realizing. That Oyaji had bestowed love upon him the moment they had met. It all had been without ease to comprehend, but the moment he did..

“I struggled a lot with my–” A hesitation could be heard, as like always when he had to speak about the time where he had been unable speak properly, his throat closed up, making it difficult for him to voice exactly what he desired to say, even if it was more of a mental thing.

Swallowing a couple of times, Marco pushed to continue with a slightly hoarse voice like someone who needed a nice glass of water. “Speech problem. I had quite the difficult time learning how to speak properly, but luckily I had my family to help me out, yoi.” It had truly been a difficult time, especially because his progress had been slow, even if he now spoke perfectly - better than most people. “You can easily say that I wasn’t like most teenagers, which was both a bad and a good thing.”
