Were the letters for the blocks chosen at random, or is there a significance? (Imagine, though, Kara teaching Alex Kryptonian by drawing the closest equivalent letter/letters on one side...)

The blocks spell out ‘ALIEN’ because I wanted both Kara and Alex’s actions in the comic to reference the plot of the episode. So, she’s trying to get the word out, as it were. XD

(I’m imagining it and yep, yep. Art had to happen.)

Shoutout to the houses with ADHD

Here’s to the Gryffindors who can’t remember times, places, and dates, who feel a constant urge to just go, who feel like their nerves are electrical wires, who keep a rubber band around their wrist to snap when they aren’t focused, who don’t understand why it can’t just stop, who constantly say they need to throw something away or go to the bathroom or blow their nose because they need to move, who are accused of being lazy but in truth they just couldn’t remember or figure it out, who constantly feel the dense mixture of burning frustration, lukewarm regret and cold disappointment in their gut, who are fighting it as best they can.

Here’s to the Hufflepuffs who can’t sit through an entire movie, who have to actively tap their fingers to remember anything, who start making something for a friend but then get up and forget about it because they couldn’t concentrate, who are worried that whenever they spend long amounts of times with the people they love, they’re constant need to move will become annoying, who always feel the claws of self-hatred choking them, whose thoughts flit so quickly they say it’s more like a crash at an intersection than a train, who make jokes about their daydreamer tendencies that actually hurt, who just need someone to support and help and understand.

Here’s to the Ravenclaws who study for hours upon hours but can only remember what they crammed seconds before the tests, who start a project but never get around to finishing it, who know they’re smart but can’t help but doubt it because “ then why are their grades so low?”, who should have much higher marks but can’t remember more than 1/3 of the material, who feel humiliation and mortification and hopelessness whenever they look at their work, who find something new they’re excited to learn about, but forget to or can’t concentrate, who think that it’s somehow their fault, who are constantly looking for proof of their brain.

Here’s to the Slytherins who experiment with so many techniques for focusing that they lost count, who have to read one instruction five times before they get it, who fear that they’re a lost cause with no hope, who try working out while the study because maybe if they try to combine the problems, it’ll make a solution, who don’t understand how their classmates can just concentrate, who feel like they’ll never accomplish their goals or make anything out of themselves, who want to know more about their favorite subject, but also want to move and run and feel, who worry that failure is their only path, who can’t imagine a life where they accomplish their goals but feel like its the only possibility, who need help.

All of you are smart, talented, and so valuable, never forget that. You are valid, it isn’t your fault, just get help. I love and am here for you.

literally just saw a larrie (famous for their fanfiction) tag a set of Gemma's tweets saying "I'm just gonna say it, I never liked her" like they aren't even trying to hide it anymore lmao I hate then so much

That’s soooo telling.

It’s like their reaction to Zayn and Liam denying it.

They pretended they believed Bossman forced both of them to say those things and it was all lies, yet they also used that opportunity to trash Liam and Zayn and openly declare they hated him.

Almost - almost - as if they believed they’d said these things of their own free will.

I’d love to ask this Larrie, do they believe Harry Styles doesn’t like his sister the same way they dislike her? In their fantasies do they really believe he prioritizes Larries over her? That if he saw them tagging about how they never liked her he’d continue using his secret Larrie blog to follow and cheer them on? That when these things happen he’d take their side? That he would enable them with his tee shirt signals and codes after these moments even though he knows it hurts someone in his real life he actually loves? Are they that narcissistic? Try and place yourself in Louis and Harry’s shoes and your entire family is fed up of this crap, what would happen if she knew both of them were enabling this fan behavior that lead to this? Or, what would happen if she believed her sibling was engaged in a fake baby plotline by evil Bossman Cowell, do they think she’d care about lashing out at Larries?

They just do not believe what they’re saying. If they believed all of this was controlled by Bossman then they would have no reason to hate Gemma. But they know she denied it because she wanted to, because she’s a reflection of how even someone normally as detached as her is fucking sick of them, that as Harry’s sister she is also 100% his voice in how sick of them Harry must be, so the only way to handle it is to turn on her. 

They don’t care about anyone involved but themselves.
