last one i mean it this time

i met a baby at work today

And it occurred to me how very skewed many of my perceptions are, by which I mean pessimistic. Or just realistic? 

Cute baby. 9 weeks old. Smiling at everyone. 

“Aw,” I said. “Are you smiling, cutie?” 

And the police officer holding him said, “He’s probably glad to be out of that house.” 

9 weeks old, and already going into care. 9 weeks old and already in the system. 

Not everyone gets an equal start in life. Not everyone gets the same chances. 

9 weeks old and the police are taking him away. And, unless he’s one of the very lucky ones, it won’t be the last time he sees the inside of a police station. 

What are his odds, I wonder. 

Probably not great. 

The system fails too many kids. 

But I hope he’s not one of them. 

I wasn’t going to post anything on here, but this means so much to me that I really don’t want to forget the moment… After having a tough time last year and working everyday pretty much all day for the past 9 months (and also watching a fair amount of ‘Homeland’ over lunch breaks to clear my mind, so thanks where thanks is due to Claire Danes), I am absolutely OVER THE MOON to find that I’m graduating Cambridge with a starred first and firsts in all of my exams !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m also so, so happy to have found this out when I was completely immersed in directing and performing in Shakespeare’s 'All’s Well That Ends Well’ (a very suitable title) in my college’s gardens and I hope Shake my man is smiling down somewhere and thinks I did his plays justice in my rambling essays - because he’s the guy who made me want to do this! I might just go dance for a while, now that Cambridge looks beautiful while the sun is out! What a day xxxx

anonymous asked:

I think that last ask is really what adores me to Izuku so much like he is no means perfect and he's learning but at the same time he's so king and caring for everyone even for people who don't deserve his kindness. His experiences with the way the world works and having experienced abuse and hate, makes him just want to work harder to make it better. His first line of dialogue is that "All men aren't created equal" and he means it but that doesn't mean he doesn't stop fighting (part one)

I agree with what you said Anon. Izuku’s whole life experience has been very different from his comrades’ one in a way that just can’t compare. Not that long ago, I wrote that being Quirkless in BNHA’s world was like being disabled. Only 20% of the population is quirkless, and it is considered as a handicap. I checked to be sure, but that’s how Izuku himself considers it at the very beginning. So I think it’s safe to assume that being quirkless can compare with being disabled, at least in the stigma it represents in society. 

That being said, Izuku’s life has been very different because of that stigma ; as someone who was mocked since his childhood, he knows just how painful it is to be made fun of and considered as a failure. He deeply understands that, and even if it was in his nature to begin with, Izuku can shows a great deal of empathy for everyone, while not being easily forgiving as he has strong convictions, and be kind and caring. His character and selfless nature totally make sense ; when you experienced it, you know how it goes for others. I love his character because he looks plain and normal while not being plain at all if you pay attention to him. Everyone made fun of Izuku back in kindergarten and middle school days, and nobody tried to talk to him and befriend him because they knew he was quirkless and that was all they could see. As soon as he entered UA where people didn’t know he was quirkless, he made friends, because he wasn’t defined by his stigma but by his abilities he could finally demonstrate, that were not just due to his new quirk. Izuku is just full of qualities ; he’s very rational and down-to-earth, he’s compassionate, kind and respectful, he’s very thoughtful and earnest, and he’s really, really brave. Once people gave him a chance, he grown up spectacularly, because he’s full of potential nobody tried to see before. 

While being ostracized, Izuku developed his own conception of the world and how things should be done. He spent his young life observing others, analyzing things, and looking for roundabouts ways to deal with villains and a lot of life related things in general, so his way of thinking is very free and refreshing. He made something out of his position as a quirkless individual and became very independent, as he had to come with new ways of dealing with problematic situations, and people, as he can’t help but butt in everyone’s issues. It made him very inventive and full of resources ; that’s how he keeps surprising us all, All Might being the more impressed about him because he saw where Izuku came from and what he’s slowly becoming. One of the first thing he ever said was that he knew his situation was a first, but still wanted to give it a try.

Can you tell he’s one of my favorite characters of all times ? Izuku is one of the first character I actually ever felt proud of. Here, take one of my favorite unnoticed panel of him as a thanks for this ask.

I’ve been really busy these last days and I’m sort of tired, so I’m sure this post about Izuku isn’t coming out like I’d want it to come out, and I apologize because while I like it this way, I don’t think it’s a very satisfying answer. But I just really felt like writing about how great he is. I can’t wait to see what kind of super hero he’ll eventually become.

Thank you

This might be very random, but I just want to tell you guys how much it means to me, that you’re all so supporting and accept me for who I am.

I didn’t have friend for a very long time, because I never stayed in one place long enough to build long lasting friendships, and people often had trouble accepting me, since I am different in many ways.

But now, I’ve made friends, and know people who accept me for who I am and don’t judge me for my music, love for musicals, and all in all for who I am. I had a really hard phase where I got bullied for being good in school, quite simply because I was youngest and class best, while the rest of my classmates were all complete Idiots.

You guys may not know all that much about me, but you know me well enough and you accept me. This is all so important to me and I wouldn’t give this up, not for a million dollars.

I just want you guys to know, I love you all and you’re the best thing a girl like me could imagine.

You’re all so important to me, and I’m unbelievably grateful for you. Stay the wonderful, amazing and fantastic people you are.

❤️

it’s time for a really sad story, and I mean sad mostly in the pathetic sense

so I was in my school’s auditorium, and some people from Disney XD are there for a promotional thing showing the first few episodes of the 3rd season of one of my favorite cartoons, one I actually thought was canceled and wasn’t going to get another season too!! I’m so happy and I’m freaking out because the new season looks so cool and the show is actually going to continue!!! After the episodes are done showing I go up to one of the DXD people and I’m just like thanking them and telling them how much I love the series and how glad I am that it’s continuing. after they have to leave I go up to someone else in the auditorium, no kidding this is how excited I am, I ask them to pinch me. they do, nothing happens. I’m so relieved because that means I’m not dreaming, this is totally real! I leave the auditorium…

and I wake up

it was a dream

and I check wikipedia on my phone and this is what it says about the current status of the show:

excuse me while I go cry for a couple of hours

anonymous asked:

Listen, I'm about to hit you with some headcanons are you ready? Ulysses was very young -- maybe an infant -- when the Twisted Hairs brokered their arrangement with the Legion. Caesar didn't betray them until after he'd conquered all the rest of Arizona which may have taken a long time since his push westward into Nevada only began within the last decade. Plenty of time for Ulysses to grow up and prove himself; one of the best scouts doesn't necessarily mean one of the oldest. [1/6ish?]

Imagine this kid who literally grew up during the long conquest of Arizona’s tribes and was raised on the idea that scouting for their “allies” the Legion was a position of honor, and he blossomed into one of the very best. This kid who’s soft spoken and cerebral weaned on tracking and survival lessons then making his parents proud. This brash, self-assured twenty-something man then seeing the world but watching it fall apart around his parents’ bodies pinned up beside I-40. [2/6]

Not all his tribesmen died fighting; some bent their heads and did as they had to to survive, but when they cut their hair they weren’t Tribe anymore. To Ulysses the men who joined the Legion are different men than the ones who helped raise him and grew alongside him. But what if there’s still at least one who finds time to care about the kid. That fucking nerdy kid who used to sit staring into the fire at camp just THINKING until someone joked that there was smoke coming out if his ears. [3/6]

I imagine, from the way he talks, Ulysses usually doesn’t talk much at all to others – except the Courier which is a whole different sack of cats. But everything he has to say at the Divide is stuff he’s kicked around in his own head so long without sharing much or any of it with anyone. In the Legion he got by with pointed gestures whenever he could because he was so burnt out just opening his mouth to speak was more than he had the mental energy for anymore. But IMAGINE. [4/6]

Imagine a former friend or an uncle or a cousin who secretly finds opportunities, once in a blue moon when they’re at camp at the same time, to check in privately on Ulysses and his mental health and try to coax him to talk, just a bit, just for a while. And this is mostly an exercise in futility but boy that kid isn’t doing well and this former tribesman isn’t going to stop checking. But man oh man. He’s gonna wish he had. [5/6]

dude this is so sad but i love it. i completely agree that ulysses was pretty young when legion first came to the twisted hairs (though i hc that he was at least 12 when that happened - around the age where he’d want to prove that he wasn’t a child anymore and small + quick enough to be get into the spaces other scouts can’t), and around 30? when the legion betrayed his tribe. he didn’t rebel bc he didn’t want to see even more of his tribe’s number diminish, and since i also hc him as the twisted hairs’ lore-keeper, he realized his importance in keeping the history of them alive. i imagine having caesar pick him to be one of the frumentarii (and therefore be under vulpes inculta’s direct command) stung.

tbh talking about ulysses’ pre-legion/during legion life is always sad but yours? with baby ulysses growing up under legion rule and not knowing anything else and be disillusioned so badly?? goddamn dude

{{ Oookay. This is either my last or second-to-last night of internet, so that means it’s starter call time. I want to use my pretty graphics one last time. :( Probably won’t do it tonight, but I will have it done before I leave. 

( Also, if I already owe you one, I haven’t forgotten. It’ll get done as well, I promise. )

tl;dr: If you wanna, like for a starter. Comment for a specific muse if you want someone in particular. Thank ya. }}

I’m back! (For the summer)

Hey, guys! So I’ve been playing the sims 3 in my free time and I really want to start posting and seeing everyone else’s sims again! I miss those days. I made this account when I had just turned 13 and I have recently turned 17, can you believe it?

But anyway, speaking of which. This Tumblr is kind of a mess so I want to make a brand new one. I’ll still leave this one up because, yknow, memories! So I’ll go make a new one and in the mean time, you guys can like this post so I can make sure to follow you! For sure I’ll follow Erin and the gang but I want to see who’s still active.

One last thing, I’m going to try a new challenge! Any ideas for which specific one I should try? All my other saves are on my old laptop, and again, this tumblr is kinda messy. Let’s try something new!

Anon said: i love ur fusion art!!!! if u have time/want to you should do a bakushima fusion

You’re not the only one that asked, but actually I already did draw it! It’s the first one I’ve drawn haha I felt like drawing it again tho, so here’s a doodled comic of the first time they fused accidentally ✌️

One year ago today, I dealt with the trauma of the Pulse massacre alone, in a foreign country, feeling for the first time how much people hated me, and reeling because this was not the first tragedy and it won’t be the last.  

Since then, my definition of pride has changed to encompass the cruel irony that 49 of us were slaughtered during Pride Month.

So here is what pride means to me now:

I’m so proud of us for turning grief into community, strength, and love, over and over again; I hate that we have to.

I’m so proud of us for finding each other across time and space, over and over again; I hate that we have to.

I’m so proud of us for waking up every morning and making it through another day of slurs and weird looks and jokes at our expense; I hate that we have to endure that.

We do this shit over and over and over again.  Every single day is the anniversary of something horrific and another day that we refuse to give up.

We exist in a world that says we should not, we love ourselves in a world that teaches us self-hate from the moment we are born, and that is the fiercest, bravest thing I can imagine.

This Pride Month, I could not be more proud.

all the times he surprised her and the one time he didn’t…

[For Gay Pride Month, Billboard asked numerous pop culture luminaries to write ‘love letters’ to the LGBTQ community. Below, Brendon Urie, frontman of Panic! at The Disco and star of Kinky Boots on Broadway, shares his.]

Love is beautiful. I know this because of my fans. They have shown me countless times what it means to accept someone for who they are. That is pure love. The last tour we just finished was the most inspiring I’ve ever been a part of.

During “Girls/Girls/Boys” fans would hold up brightly colored paper hearts against their phone lights to show their support of a community they may or may not have even been a part of. But this showed me that we ARE a part of the same community: Human beings.

I recently received a letter from one fan in particular named Vivian. She professed her gratitude for the concert and especially this incredible moment of love. It had given her the courage to be herself and admit to her parents who she felt she was. I can think of no greater gifts than love and acceptance.

So I want to say thank you. Thank you to all of you for being who you are. You’re beautiful and I love you. (x)

Batfam cleaning headcanons
  • Dick once accidentally sucked up Tim’s iPad charger with the vacuum. 
  • Damian once intentionally attacked Tim with the vacuum. They ended up having to cut his hair just to set him loose and Tim was not happy.
  • When told to clean his room, Jason would, without fail, stuff everything into the closet and drawers… only to be busted by Alfred. 
  • Cass tends to do the same thing at her place, but more because she genuinely thinks she’s cleaning? Alfred is appalled when he opens a closet door and Literally Everything pours out.
  • Damian and Tim once had a “Windex fight”. 
  • Dick is really bad for not pointing the nozzle in the right direction when dusting or cleaning, and has sprayed himself in the eye many, many times. 
  • Jason once mopped the kitchen and forgot to tell anyone… so Bruce came back from patrol and slipped, falling face-down on the floor. When confronted, Jason shrugged and said that if Bruce had let him go on patrol “this wouldn’t have been a problem”. 
  • There is an ongoing competition to see who can scare Damian while he’s cleaning and wearing his headphones the most. Dick is currently winning with 7 confirmed scares. 
  • Eight-year-old Dick being made to do the occasional chore (at the behest of Bruce, “to teach him the values of diligence and hard work”) and singing “It’s The Hard-knock Life” from Annie just to piss of Alfred and Bruce. It works. 
  • Dick fell out of a window once when he was cleaning one of the top floor windows. Tried to do it again because he claimed it was “good practice”. 
  • Steph is forbidden from cleaning or touching anything in Wayne Manor after breaking a rare, antique vase that cost $1.2 million. She’s allowed to sit on the couch though.
  • Babs definitely stress cleans. Like, everything in sight. Don’t leave your stuff out when Babs gets really stressed because she will probably throw it away.
  • Dick dances and sings while he cleans, which means it takes him much longer and gets on everyone’s nerves because it’s usually cheesy pop or 80′s tunes. 
  • Bruce once took it upon himself to clean his own shower and Alfred found him laying on the bathroom floor, barely conscious, a strong fume permeating the room:
  • Alfred: *coughing through the fumes* Master Bruce! What on earth is— is that fear toxin?! Laughing gas? 
  • Bruce: No… *weakly points to a spray container* I used too much… Cillit Bang…. 
  • Alfred: *slowly stands and leaves the room without another word*
- Silver button -

It arrived at my grandma’s house, I woke up early to go there…and now  it’s in my hands!

This is the first time I get a kind of thing like this one, I mean, a reward for the work I’m currently doing. I must admit this is a wonderful gift from Youtube, but what I appreciate the most is the support from everyone since I started with this, for the amount of people that like my animations, for the amazing people I met and are now great friends of mine, for other artists who inspired me and gave me strong to keep forward. 

This button can have just my name (RIP letter Ñ of my last name lmao) and a number, but in my heart it says the names of each one of you for supporting a small artist who had a second chance to be able to love what she does.

I do really hope to still entertain you with my animations and art in the future, with my original projects and more stuff.

Thank you so much people. Thank you for everything.

Now I’ll make a lil’ video about this to my channel.
Have a nice day/evening/night <3

Jimin.

You sighed through your nostrils, closing your eyes and ignoring the impending headache that you could already feel starting in your temples. You debated not answering, and the call ended. You nearly let a smile form on your lips, but your phone began to vibrate in your hand again, Jimin’s name popping up once again as the sound of your ringtone kept you from sleeping.

You know what’s a shame?

When your favorite VOD streaming service cancels  one of their most diverse Shows right at the beginning of Pride Month!

I mean srsly…..

When was the last time I saw a Show that wasn’t either dominated by white folks or kinda exclusive to POC? Instead Sense8 has a mix of 8 wonderfully different main characters, such as…

Will Gorski:

The cop from Chicago, the loyal friend, the lover; a man confident enough to trust the woman by his side with his whole conscious & unconscius being to save him. 

Riley Blue:

The DJane from Iceland, the mother, the lonely spirit; the woman who would walk trough hell and back to save the ones she loves.

Capheus Onyango:

The Matatu driver from Nairobi, the optimist, the one who won’t let himself be defined by poor or rich but just his courage to make a difference. 

Sun Bak:

The Warrioress from Korea, the unbent, betrayed by those closest to her but not even prison could break her. Now she’s on her way for justice.

Lito Rodriguez:

The closeted telenovela star from Mexico, the passionate dreamer, along his career he learnt to be the hero of his own destiny. Can he make it big beyond the borders of his homeland?

Kala Dandekar:

The Pharmacist from India; the believer, once she learnt that traditions are not necessarily the safest option she finds the courage to fight for her happiness.

Wolfgang Bogdanow:

The safecracker from Germany, raised by a brutal and bullying father he found family much closer then bound by blood and even love where he least expected it.

Nomi Marks:

The transgender hacktivist from San Francisco, rejected by her family who refuse to accept her new Identity as Nomi, she made herself a name by blogging about political issues. Her fiancee Amanita a beautiful WOC with 3 father figures have her back in all this.

Now imagine these 8 completely different characters living their individual life finding out that they’re mentally connected with one another. Called a cluster  they explore step by step each others world by visiting one another. Visiting means they can only use the regular given senses of seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting etc from the person they visit. Another ability is sharing. Sharing means they can use each others skills  regardless of their own but this works only within the cluster.  So in short word that means Capheus can share his driving skills with Nomi who can’t drive as much as Lito can feel Sun Baks menstruation symptoms sometimes. Yes they have very a lot of funny and emotional moments together along they way.

Other Characters:

Angelica Turing:

Better known as the mother she appears to be the one capable of giving birth to clusters by releasing/activating their connection to each other. When her last cluster awoke she commited suicide. She was in a relationship with Jonas which whom she released several clusters.

Jonas Maliki:

He shows up when Angelica’s last born cluster awoke to guide and teach them their abilities as sensates. He’s doing this mainly through Will Gorski. Jonas and Angelica were in a relationship and part of the same cluster. 

Dr. Whispers:

He’s the main antagonist of the Show goes by several aliases but best known as Whispers. Although as a sensate himself he’s part of an organisation that hunts down other sensates. He can only connect with a cluster by making direct eye contact. 

Amanita Caplan:

Amanita works in a bookstore, supports LGBT charities, she has a mother named Grace and three father figures because they never cared to find out who’s the biological one. They loved her all the same. She is Nomi’s fiancee.

Hernando Fuentes:

He’s an Art professor, loves to cook and is the lover of Lito. Despite his relationship with Lito needs to be kept a secret due the career of Lito he’s very supportive. Nontehelss he has strong beliefs of its own and is mostly the more grounded part in their relationship.

Daniela Velasquez:

She comes from a wealthy background, is an actress and Lito’s friend as well as his cover at events. Later she finds out about his secret and formes a close bond to both Lito and Hernando based on her fascination with gay men in general.

Felix Berner:

He’s Wolfgangs best friend since they were kids. Although he’s having the talent to getting himself in trouble and Wolfgang along with him hes fairly loyal and the only one who knows about Wolfie’s abusive childhood.

Despite this amazing concept of 8 fully developed individual characters forming a worldwide bond to defeat a greater enemy who’s after them for experiments and killing them in the process Netflix canceled this Show after only 2 Seasons. Sure filming in 8 differerent cities all over the globe is expensive but that makes the quality even better and so much more authentic. There is no need to kill off characters for the shock effect, no need to sideline anyone for the sake of one major pairing. They’re equals, they’re individuals, not dependent on each other but stronger together if it’s necessary.

If you don’t believe me go and watch it for yourself on Netflix if you have it!
