just watched this with the mother

I keep telling my mom about how SU is going since she used to love it. I told her about Mindful Education and she turned around and said “The fuck”.

Full mom rant:
If Connie has anxiety then she should have gone to her mother who’s a doctor! Anxiety is a serious illness, not something that can be dealt with in a song. Kids watching will feel like there’s something wrong with them when their anxiety doesn’t clear up instantly. Now if there’s a direct source for the anxiety, you fix it. Remove the source if it’s possible! And it sounds like Pearl is her anxiety source. Singing songs doesn’t help; it just masks an issue. And what happened to just fighting monsters every week?? The fuck is this show now

The Signs as Soup:

Aries: A can of chef boyardee from 1982. A quality vintage.

Taurus: Chili that reminds you of home. You know not what subtle alchemy your mother did to make such common ingredients taste as such. You can never truly recreate it.

Gemini: A thick corn chowder with oyster crackers. As it was meant to be served. It was cooked with courage.

Cancer: A frozen round of french onion. As it melts in the pot you see it take its shape again. You watch as something industrial and soulless gives way to comfort.

Leo: A three bean stew your vegan friend served you. Hot damn its good. Like, really good. This is just three beans? Damn these vegans are clever.

Virgo: A tiny tiny bowl of miso. You wish you had gone slower but you just couldn’t.

Libra: A bowl of chicken noodle made with those thick egg noodles and huge chunks of chicken, salted with purpose and gusto. 

Scorpio: That bowl of pork stew you had at your friends Filipino wedding. You never did find out what it was called.

Ophiuchus: A bowl of ramen your lover made you. A combination of inexperience and happenstance caused the beef to be underdone an the veggies to be overdone but it was still delicious.

Sagittarius: The first bowl of pho you ever ate. You didn’t know what the plate of bean sprouts were for. 

Capricorn: A bowl of weapons grade spicy menudo. 

Aquarius: Borscht, served in a tureen. You’re 90% sure the woman who made it is some sort of witch. 

Pisces: A bowl of goulash that took four days to make. Eaten in the wilderness, under the stars.

Remember that one post I made hinting about my first Stricklake AU? Well, here you are…!

Stricklake Medieval Fantasy AU featuring Lord Chancellor Strickler (or Hand of the King, whichever you fancy) and Healer Barbara, Lady of Lake. 

Though his primary concern is given to controlling chaos and keeping a watchful eye of the Court of Arcadia, Strickler’s attention cannot help but be drawn by Lady Lake as she does the duties of both Principal Healer in Court (and battling the sexism of other male Healers) and mother to one young Knight, James of Lake, who just so happens to be the latest Trollhunter and target of dark designs from Strickler’s master…

Gosh, but going through the first AU with a brand new OTP is always a delightful thing! Barbara doesn’t have her glasses for obvious reasons, so she has to deal with headaches from nearsightedness along with everything else, poor woman. Not gonna lie, I am SO pleased with how Strickler’s shadow turned out – I love the Shadow Reveal The True Form  trope so so so much <3 

every poem I write is for my mother
who stapled her tongue shut
every tear I shed is for my father
who gifted me the will of the black roses
that sprouted from his head
i tried to read old poetry from the dead girl
but the pebble in my throat stopped me
i forgot the name of the dandelion flowers
i used to blow on outside of the pink house,
gleefully watching as petals flutter in the wind
sometimes i go up to the park that i only have
good memories of and sit on the robin’s egg swing
to kick myself up so high i’m sure i could fly if i was not
an anvil, rooted, rusting.
i walk more now, just recently mustered up
the courage to go past the purple-grey house i used to cry in.
it looks just as miserable as it did when i was seven
i take a picture to show to my mother, who smiles.
my bedroom faces east now, so when i sleep in
i am risen, violently by an unrelenting California sun.
the sweat has already sunk into my bones and i wake
trepidly.

I just don't get how romantics think sometimes. Like, I was watching this one video, and it said that this character was bad because "she chose safety and financial stability for her future child over staying with her *true love*". This was 100% serious too! I can't wrap my head around how wanting to be a good mother is suddenly a bad thing now. I just don't understand the logic.

the fact that so many people think like that gives me less hope for this world.

anonymous asked:

I like this girl but she claims she's really busy and can't talk to me but when she isn't at work she posts on snap, watches my snap and reads my messages and doesn't respond. So today I texted her and told her I needed space because I just lost my mother last month so all this piling up is not helping me mentally. I've been depressed and suicidal before but I don't want to go back down that road off of some girl. Am I over exaggerating and was it best to cut her off? Thank you ❤

If you felt it was right to cut her off then yes because she was clearly ignoring you. I’m so sorry for your loss and I honestly can’t say anything that will make you feel better on that but hold on tight and don’t give up your mother would want you to live your life to the fullest so stay strong lovey

While the director(s) insists that the beale women were not exploited in grey gardens, proof of which was that edie managed a life for herself after her mothers death, everything in it screams the contrary. They chose to frame them a certain way, and make a documentary instead of helping these two women. And i know they were wealthy and a bit obnoxious, but there is info that little edie burned her own hair which speaks on its own about her mental state. Idk how to feel comfortable watching this, i cant. They filmed them arguing, and little edie in certain delusions of possible stardom… they knew exactly what they were doing. Idk im probably just crazy for being so disturbed, and maybe others disagree that it was exploitative to film them in this manner.

I didn't deal with abuse in a relationship but I did have to deal with it from my dad, and I saw it first hand be done to my mother, and I'll admit that mon-el isn't that awful, but yes there are patterns that mirror abuse, and I think it definitely gives a terrible lesson to all people watching the show. Like the way he tells Kara awful things and then is like "oh sorry, I'll be better" but never actually changes and just does it again next episode is a big red flag too. (1)

And I have a bad feeling about this next episode. I worry that mon-el will get mad that Kara doesn’t listen to him right away about Jeremiah and will guilt trip her into listening, and Kara will ultimately apologize for not trusting him, even though mon-el hasn’t listened to her once this season. This just reminds me a lot about the abuse my mom dealt with. The women has to listen but the guy doesn’t, he just needs to falsely promise change.

I change my stance on the emotional abuse aspect in that he is borderline abusive. Thank you and the previous anon for sharing your experiences and showing me that he is clearly showing patterns that mirror emotional abuse. I only think that saying he has physically abused Kara is ridiculous and uncalled for. 

Chuck: Is a deadbeat Dad. Doesn’t care for his offspring. Watches his children suffer without stopping their pain. 

Dean: Calls him out on it. 

Chuck: I’m not the problem Dean, you are. You are confused because you had a bad childhood. 

Mary: Intentionally endangers her children. Betrays them by going behind their back to work with enemy. 

Dean: Is unhappy about the obvious betrayal by his own mother. 

Mary: Dean don’t give me the face, Dean. You are over-reacting. 

Interesting how people try to turn the tables on Dean when he calls them out on their mistakes instead of acknowledging the validity of his reactions and observations. Isn’t it? 

Omg I just had a thought for like a new Maggie story line possibly for season 3. (BTW this is all made up by me so) ok so what if, Maggie’s mom shows up in national city looking for Maggie so she can reconnect. Ok so we heard that her dad kicked her out and was a complete asshole but she didn’t really mention her mother. So what if her dad dies or something like that and then her mother tries to reconnect with her daughter because she’s always loved maggie it was just her father’s ideals getting in the way. And that she never agreed with kicking maggie out but she was too scared to say anything against her husband. And she tells Maggie that she has been watching over her and she was at her graduation from college and then the police force and that she is so proud of her. And Alex just holds her because she never thought she would hear those words come out of her mother’s mouth ever again, ever since she was a child.

Idk this just popped into my head but it’s like 3am so it’s probably just crazy😂

@triangle-mother ok heres what happened. yesterday during class a girl i am friends with kissed me on the cheek. my other friend said that someone should leave a lipstick mark on my cheek and she was really willing to volunteer for this task and immediately kissed me on the cheek. i have no idea if this was a gay gesture or just Gals Being Pals but im assuming she’s het bc she’s never talked about girls before. but,, shes never really talked about guys either. and she watches steven universe. so i have no idea if shes straight or wlw or what. so i found her twitter. and im lurking to see if she says anything gay

cinderella: redo

so i was watching cinderella while doing my nails and waiting for them to dry which was clearly a Mistake because now i can’t help but think -

the evil stepmother was always evil, okay. say her abuse of her own daughters was different than that of cinderella’s - but it was still abuse. giving them impossible expectations, telling them they were never good enough, never pretty enough, never smart enough. and then she gets married, and anastasia and drizella are ecstatic because this man seems kind and warm and maybe just maybe he can temper their mother, maybe with him around she won’t be so cruel. so they’re on their very best behavior in the beginning, they do just as their mother taught - they trot out their best upper court manners in an attempt to get their new stepfather to like them. but it just comes off as cold and snooty and they’re trying, they are, they’re just bad at it. and they see how he is with cinderella, the smiling girl their own age, and they are jealous. they don’t mean to be, they try not to be, they know it isn’t becoming of young ladies. but she gets hugs and kisses and affection and they get rulers slapped on their hands when they reach for desert and sharp jabs to their sides when they slouch and - soon they hate cinderella, not for anything she’s done, but for what she has and they dont

but then her father dies. and it’s all a tumble of things and cinderella is crying and they’ve lost their only chance at escaping their mother’s clutches and it’s terrible. and everything settles and there’s no reason to be jealous anymore but resentment is hard to let go of and they don’t know what to do. they’re only kids too after all. and they’re so terribly bad at comforting people, they can do flowery words and know all the right bows but cinderella is so sad and they just don’t know what to do with that, because they’re supposed to be sisters but they’re not even friends

and slowly but surely their mother starts abusing cinderella, starts making her a maid in her own home, and she’s their mother, what are anastasia and drizella supposed to do? she rules them with an iron fist, and cinderella doesn’t even like them anyway, it’s none of their business.

except one night anastasia crawls into her sister’s bed in the middle of the night and wakes her up. “i was thirsty,” she explains, eyes wide and shiny, and they’re bad at this with other people but drizella has no problems with pulling anastasia into her arms. the younger girl clutches her sister and continues, “i was thirsty and i went down to the kitchen to get some water and - and cinderella is still up! she’s doing the dishes, and she should be asleep, mom is going to make her make breakfast in the morning and -” she cuts herself off with a hiccup and whispers, “it’s not fair.”

“life isn’t fair,” drizella says, echoing one of their mother’s favorite phrases. but her sister is staring at her with wet eyes, and it’s not like their mother is likely to get up before sunrise anyway, she hates waking up, so she pulls herself and anastasia out of bed and off they go.

I know everyone and their mother seems to be screaming about this show right now - so for those of you who don’t watch it, I’m sorry, just bear with me a sec. I’ll try to keep things vague for those of you avoiding spoilers.

But you know the one thing about Yuri on Ice that gets me? 

How normalized everything is. 

For example, that moment in Episode 7 where Viktor very openly expresses his affection for Yuuri in front of an international audience? I was honestly expecting shit to hit the fan in Episode 8, at least to some degree. Here is a male celebrity (a Russian male celebrity, for that matter) at the peak of his career and with a large fan base… some of whom blame Yuuri for taking him away from them in order to coach. I was sort of dreading the backlash that they might face as a result or at the very least the judgmental glances they may get from assholes who don’t approve. The figure skating community alone is known to be pretty damn hostile toward even the mere suggestion of homosexuality.

Except they didn’t. The story just continued.

And now in Episode 10… that moment in the restaurant where the congratulatory announcement was made after a misunderstanding? No one questioned it. No one second-guessed it. A whole restaurant of strangers clapped for two people they presumably did not know but could clearly see sitting at the table and no one batted an eye at the fact that they were applauding for two men. 

While there is definitely a need in fiction to explore the struggle, the backlash, the hatred and homophobia that same-sex couples face… when I think about it, that narrative has dominated almost every piece of LGBTQ fiction I’ve personally encountered, to the point where I feel like it can overshadow the relationship at the center of it all.

But in this show, it doesn’t. You just get to enjoy them for who they are and how they care about one another and celebrate each step they take along the way.

And that is so fucking refreshing.

WHICH CHARACTER HAS THE WORST LUCK IN SNK

You think your lives are bad? Just look at characters of SNK.

Eren:
1)Saw his mother get eaten by his father’s ex wife.
2)Got eaten by a Titan.
3)Has an asshole for a father who forced Eren to become a Titan shifter and eat him, making Eren live with the guilt.
4)Inevitably was turned into the very thing he hated.
5)Everybody thought he was a monster.
6) Is hated because he chose the life of his best friend since forever over Erwin’s.
7)Has to live with his father’s shit memories as well.
8)Kidnapped several times.
9)Watched his entire squad get killed because he trusted them.
10)Found out that the girl he kind of looked upto turned out be a murderer and a titan shifter.
11)Found out his friends were actually the assholes that destroyed his life and the wall.
12) Has dick for a step brother.
13)Asshole Grisha may not even be his father
14)Even if he defeats the titans he’ll end up dying.

Mikasa
1) Saw her parents get murdered in front of her eyes.
2) Saw Carla, who was like a mother figure to her get eaten by a Titan.
3)Came to know that Eren her only surviving family killed off Grisha who gave her a home.
4)Is hated for being protective and loyal to the people she loves even if they are her only surviving family.
5)Is mostly in love with a suicidal, short tempered boy who gets kidnapped or almost killed every third chapter.
6)Became a soldier and worked as hard as she could to protect her only goal of being with Eren just to watch it shatter.
7)Going to have to watch Eren and Armin die eventually and not be able to do anything.
8)Probably the only one who is going to be left standing by the end of this war, with no family, having to start all over again facing her bigger fear of being alone and having absolutely no power to stop it no matter how hard she trained to prevent this exact outcome.
9)Dying would probably be a happier ending for her at this point.

Armin
1)Orphan
2)Lost his grandparents too
3)Dumped with the guilt and responsibility of being chosen over Erwin even though he had nothing to do with it.
4)Has only thirteen more years to live
5)Has to watch his best friend die before him.
6)Total cinnamon roll who deserves much better.

Levi
1)Lost his mother.
2)Was Raised by Kenny.
3)Had a shit all childhood in the underground.
4)Lost his two closest friends.
5)Lost his entire freaking squad.
6)Had to give up his mentor and save Armin so that Erwin could finally be at peace.
7)Probably going to end up dying after killing Zeke in an epic show down.
8)Probably going to break before that, if Hange dies leaving him with literally no one.

I know that Eren and Armin have it bad (especially Eren) but Levi and Mikasa’s crappy lives really take the cake. I mean literally everybody Levi loves dies and nothing can be more cruel than leaving Mikasa alive as the last one standing, helpless and all alone at the end.

YOU GUYS.

$@*$(#)@

I just watched sneak peek scene for tonight’s (Monday) Timeless (9c/10e, NBC - please watch!!!), took a screencap of Eliot (Misha) and immediately knew I had to do a screencap of Dean from 7x12 “Time After Time”, because HOLY MOTHER OF ARMS

Also…I’m a sucker for 30’s/40’s period clothing.

Somebody come mop me up off the floor…

Darkiplier and Antisepticeye

Ok first of all, holy mother of fucks, @markiplier ‘s valentine’s day video was absolutely the best thing ever! (along with @therealjacksepticeye ‘s halloween video).

if you haven’t watch Mark’s video, I suggest you you go now before reading this post (if you actually even read it xD) because it might contain spoilers.

Ok so we now have physical proof of Darkiplier’s existence, just like Anti’s. I love how they both act alike with the glitches and all, but they’re still so different from each other. from what I saw with Jack and Anti, it seems like Anti fights Jack for control of the physical body. Anti was restless, he’d do anything and everything to take full control of Jack’s body, including killing Jack which is kinda what he did in the halloween video when he cut his throat. He just wanted freedom, and he has no problem in blaming us (the fans) for his actions towards Jack (“you all said my name”, “YOU” “its all your fault” “you all made this happen” “you could’ve stopped me… but you just watched as this happened” “now he’s gone forever”). He knows exactly what to say to make us feel guilty. that sounds an awful lot like a sociopath. I might be wrong but I just did some research (I wouldn’t be writing this without doing my homework ahah) and some of the traits are:

  • Repeated violations of the law
  • Pervasive lying and deception
  • Physical aggressiveness
  • Reckless disregard for safety of self or others
  • Consistent irresponsibility in work and family environments
  • Lack of remorse

you can see most of these behaviors in Anti. Antisepticeye is a sociopath.


now Darkiplier on the other hand…


from what I saw in mark’s valentine’s day video, Dark looked like he had more self control. he seemed awfully calm. he wasn’t trying to fight Mark for a chance of controling the body. he was waiting for Mark to actually let him in (”I’ve been waiting patiently” “he promised he would let me in again”) and this makes me think… Dark is strong enough to take over Mark’s body without actually attacking Mark the way Anti did with Jack. and Mark knows it. so he made a deal. he would let Dark get in from time to time, if he promised not to hurt anyone. obviously Dark wouldn’t keep that promise like we see in the 14 million subs video for example. now lets take a look at some of the psychopath traits:

  • Lack of guilt/remorse
  • Lack of empathy
  • Lack of deep emotional attachments
  • Narcissism
  • Superficial charm
  • Dishonesty
  • Manipulativeness
  • Reckless risk-taking

I don’t know about you but these scream Darkiplier to me. you can see how emotionally detached he is from us. he just wants to toy with our emotions. this is all but a game to him. and he doesn’t care about the consequences (”take your pick. anything of four different choices”, “and lets see how far down this rabbit hole really goes” “so take your pick. show me what you got”, “and maybe we’ll have a good date after all”). he gives us a sense of security and happiness(?) (”if dinner is what you want, then I can provide”, “and I can take you to wherever you’d like to go”), only to be crushed by a statement that makes us fear for our own life (”I can specially take you to places where you DON’T want to go”), leaving us on the edge. he makes us think he actually cares about us (”I’ve been waiting a long time to get some personal space between us”), when he actually just wants to hurt us (”THERE’S NOTHING YOU OR HE CAN DO TO STOP ME”, “youre never, ever going to escape me”).

and if you notice, after you’ve chosen who to kill, you’ll see that if you choose the left option, Mark looks so worried and empathetic over us, trying to reassure us… after all we just killed someone and he’s worried about us (compared to the Mark we’re left with, if you choose the right option). at the end, it turns out we killed the wrong Mark, and we’re left with Dark in front of us. for a second we believed we killed the right Mark, seeing how calm and not evil M(D)ark was acting towards us. that is manipulation. Dark made us believe we were safe now, that we made the right choice, only to crush that sense of safeness right when we were starting to get confortable and at peace (”oops… looks like you made the wrong choice”, “but now we’re going to be together…. forever”)

I strongly believe Darkiplier is a psychopath and Antisepticeye is a sociopath. they both act differently towards Jack and Mark and their fans, but at the same time, in a very similar way. I believe the reason Anti is so glitchy and Dark is so “HD quality” (xD) is because Anti forced his way into Jack and obviously thats gonna leave some damage, while Dark waited (im)patiently for his turn to take over the body.


I just want to congratulate @therealjacksepticeye and @markiplier for portraying these characters, made up by the fans, so unbelievably well, and thank them for taking their time to make something, created by the community, come true like this. you guys are amazing.


this is just my theory, if you disagree or have something to say, I’d be more than happy to hear your theories, but don’t be rude or anything.

also, if you read this giant post till the end, thank you so much for taking your time to do so :) sorry if this was a bit confusing xD
