less we know

Chris Schistad deserves more screentime. And if you don’t agree because you think he’s an annoying fuckboy just think of Vilde, how we would still hate her if we didn’t know about her nice side, her problems…
At first we all hated her but then we started to learn more and more about her and now we love her or at least appreciate her enough to want her happiness. We all wanted her to deal with her eating disorder. We all wanted her to find love.
But if she had had less screentime, we would only know about her annoying side.
Same goes with Chris. He’s underrated.
It’s not about how hot he is. It’s about his personality and what it’s hiding. We know nothing about him and it’s a pity.

I love this teasing tone Peggy uses with Angie sometimes (◡‿◡✿)

Rhythm of Love

An AU where Danny’s a singer and Jack is a drummer, and they just happen to be in the same band. Also, in love. What can you do, though?

None of these pictures are mine (except the screenshots lmao) and credit goes to the rightful owners.

there will be people who use you. they are good at getting close so you care about them. when they see your scars, they’ll flash their own. you will feel kin to them. you know what it is to struggle with things.

and at first you think: they’ll help me if i help them.

but it doesn’t happen. you love them deeply so you always pick up the phone. it doesn’t matter that you have a test the next day or that you’re going through things of your own. you support them.

they are good at pretend. they will play like they are your friend, so you endlessly give to them. after a while you realize: it really doesn’t matter what’s happening in your life, some more pressing emergency is always happening to them. it is a hard thing to recognize, because you don’t want people to hurt like you do. 

i have a friend who never asks me if i’’m okay. she only ever texts me to tell me she wants to die, but never goes to therapy or does any of the things i tell her to do to help herself. once when i came back from my grandfather’s funeral she demanded to know why i’d been gone, and when i explained, she said that without me, she’d almost passed out of this world. i had to lay down on the floor; nothing made sense anymore. i want her to get better. i want to help.

but there are people out there who will use you. who don’t care about getting better, they care about you giving up your time, your effort, your everything. until you are drained of it. i don’t mean those who give back, who will gladly do anything for you, who you know you can trust. who you don’t mind giving up the test for, because you know they’d do the same in a similar spot.

i mean those who don’t know you. who pretend that they care about you but are using your empathy as a sore spot. who take more than they need. who demand your attention all of the time but don’t care if you bleed.

Hi hi i really love your blog! I was thinking about a scenario where Yata gets turned into a kid/toddler by a strain and his mother happens to find him? Cue yata's mom taking care of her baby again and minoru and megumis reaction ^^

Tiny Misaki would be too cute, his mom would just want to cuddle him forever. Maybe this is like post-ROK and after all the mess that happened with Hisui and the Slates Yata’s given the go ahead to tell his mom more about what he actually does all day, like how he’s got super powers and sometimes fights against bad guys with super powers. Yata’s mom is really worried to learn about all this of course, knowing her son is regularly putting himself into danger without her knowledge and that it’s been happening all this time, and even knowing that Fushimi might be there to have his back again now that they’ve made up doesn’t ease her worries any. Yata keeps telling her that it’s fine though, the worst of it is done now and he’s got the rest of Homra to back him up in case he ever gets into any real trouble.

So then say one day Fushimi and Yata are working together to hunt down a Strain and Yata gets hit by it, turning into a little kid. Tiny Yata is all nervous and scared because he doesn’t understand where he is or why his mom isn’t here, Fushimi wants to take care of him but at the same time there’s a major situation going down where Fushimi’s needed and he certainly can’t take Yata with him. As it happens though they’re right near where Yata’s old house is and Fushimi finds himself wondering if he could just do what tiny Yata wants and take him back to his mom, Fushimi knows that Yata’s mom will be able to handle him and watch him, plus he’ll probably be safe there because no one will be looking for him at just a normal residential house. And that’s how Fushimi ends up standing awkwardly in front of the door to Yata’s old house holding a five year old Yata in his arms, knocking sheepishly as he tries to think of how to explain this to Yata’s mom. Yata’s mom opens the door, takes one look at baby Misaki and just sweeps him into her arms because he’s so cute Saruhiko-kun when did you get a child, my he looks exactly like Misaki did at this age. Yata’s face just brightens and he’s like ‘Mama!’ which makes Yata’s mom pause because wait, he looks exactly like Misaki. Fushimi sheepishly explains the situation and asks if she’d watch Yata for a bit until Fushimi can come back for him, Yata’s mom certainly can’t so no to babysitting her own baby so she cuddles tiny Yata and says that she’d be happy to watch him until the power wears off.

Yata’s mom takes baby Yata back inside and maybe she has to tell him that Minoru and Megumi are like his distant cousins or something so tiny Yata doesn’t get confused. Minoru and Megumi are both really confused at first, Minoru kinda knows about the powers thing but Megumi doesn’t really and explaining to them that yes this is your brother and he doesn’t know you’re his siblings is a bit hard. Minoru probably doesn’t really want too much to do with baby Misaki at first, like he’s had to babysit Megumi enough he’s not into watching little kids but he ends up falling into the big brother role very quickly and it’s cute (though then on the angsty side maybe imagine Minoru’s enjoying getting to be a big brother to Yata but it also reminds him of how Yata kinda disappeared from their lives and he’s got some bitterness there, that his own big brother didn’t stick around to protect and care for him like this and he’s just sitting there with tiny Yata like ‘hey, when you grow up, don’t forget your little brother needs someone too, okay?’). Megumi meanwhile is pleased to finally not be the youngest in the house and she likes playing with little Yata, he’s always smiling at her and wanting to play and she likes just sitting there with him on her lap.

Yata’s mom meanwhile finds herself unexpectedly enjoying having her baby back, while she wishes normal Yata would come back a little more often so she could show her grown up son how much she still cares for him there’s something nice about having him small again so she can cuddle him and tickle his tummy and just enjoy her bright ball of sunshine. She reads baby Yata stories and sits with him on the couch cuddling him and the whole family ends up watching like a cute cartoon movie together and it’s totally sweet and cute. Yata’s mom finds herself feeling really content, like she’s got all her kids back and they’re getting along and she ends up telling little Misaki all the things she wishes she could say to his older self, how she loves him and she’s proud of him but also that she misses him and wants him to come see her more often because the house has always felt more empty without him around. (And then imagine she falls asleep on the couch snuggling little Yata and wakes up to find normal Yata there sitting next to the couch and holding her hand, smiling softly as he thanks her for taking care of him again, even if it was just for a little while.)

my precious green gender nonconforming gremlins! cant believe i found another type of character for me

seriously wtf happened to the quality of the picture :(((( click it plz

Code: Realize: King of Cakes Van

My true and one and only king of cake, Abraham Van Helsing of course! I love how while at the same time he doesn’t look like he wants to be posing for the photo, he makes a suggestive wink of “but if you want to see more”….because, sometimes less is more. We already know that to really get to know Van, you have to look past what’s up front, just the way I like it.


Van’s cake may not be the most biggest, towering or elaborate, but it certainly has paid the most attention to detail and made a nod to the original game. Simpler but with many significant decorations. Remember the cannon Van got shot out of? Well, it’s right there, along with the blimp from the airship race. I’m curious about the tower and ladder, but I can only presume this makes reference to his military past. The most interesting thing, however, is Sissi is on the cake! This is much like an earlier image that both are featured together. Perhaps they get along much better than we realize. Van is King, and the voice behind him is my seiyuu king ^^ This completes the “Kings of Cake” series. ♥

The thing is that 2016 brought so many twists and turns in the events and so many of them we couldn’t find a reason to: the timeline was an honest to god mess, the March thing, the papped every day in April and May just to stop abruptly and going completely off the radar in and SINCE June and only stunting once per month or even less. 

We didn’t know WHY and we didn’t have to know why. I’m so happy they had the control over this. They lost control over so many things, hands tied for six years but they had control over THIS. They chose to take it as a private matter, to which they have every right to, and they didn’t want the fandom to know. 

This proves that they can hide anything, for as long as they want to or have to.

The fact that the last week seems to be all about the fandom’s favorite explanation to beards, the magic word privacy, because if it’s private then it must be real. That the beard(s) (is there even proof that the other one is there in the UK as well?) flew out privately and this suddenly makes it all real. It causes anxiety and doubts for some fans. Which, in itself is understandable, because these thorns of lies have really tangled around the family, didn’t they? That some days fans just need to go through the events again to come back to the conclusion that there’s no way B ever gave birth and there’s also no way Louis would treat his kid like this, EVEN IF B magically gave birth. There was already a birth certificate, so a mention in the statement from Dan Deakin, and *family* pictures was understandably a thing, even though Jay herself cleared her social media from the lies months ago and kept posting everything about her family and kids since then.

The mention in the statement threw people off and I think the Tomlinson-Deakin family had enough on their plate than to take one scandal while they had only a limited time with Jay. 

I think the privacy was all happening because this is what was requested from them, that they demanded no stunts and no rebellions from D and B to lighten Jay’s last days. The same that was yesterday, maybe some were there, we don’t know, but I think the families would’ve lost their shit if B or D dared to do something that wasn’t making Dec 10 about Jay. Bottom line, the fandom had to know about them being there, or had to think they’re there otherwise the fandom would’ve made an even bigger mess, a mess Louis and Jay and the family didn’t need.  

As for Harry still being with him? Ask yourself why he had flown over London every time he had the chance, and why he was pretty much this whole year where Louis was? Why their pappings and mia times are completely aligned, why he flew publicly and got papped in the beginning of December? Apart from the Jan 20 arrival I can’t recall any more Harry airport pics this year, but I might be wrong. Bottom line is, he’s been hardly papped. The few times he was it was something significant. And I think both him and Louis gave us enough hints that they’re as in love as before. And now we even know they did this while hiding Jay’s situation and they should count 2 times more.

Of course, this is my own opinion and you’re entitled to yours. I just thought it’s worth thinking about how minor these stunts become when it’s about life or death. They aren’t number one priority. They were for us, we’ve been craving the end of bg for a year and a half, and they made it clear they crave it as much as we do, but they had more important things to take care of and that sorta explains so many things that didn’t make sense this year. 

Still, they took their sweet time to give us hints they’re still going strong.

minor pet peeve: seeing extremely popular fics continuously show up on fic rec lists

GONE instagram AU where the FAYZ never happened and they can go to the movies at the weekend / The Big Four 

girls can have depth even if they’re sweet and cute and girly….

especially since girls are socialized to act that way no matter what they’re feeling so if you don’t look past the surface of the mannerisms they often feel forced to perform then you’re not paying attention

You may be saying that about your student’s parent

Content note: This post is mostly intended for k-12 classroom teachers, but probably applies to other groups as well.

When you teach, it’s really important to be mindful of the fact that people from all walks of life have children. 

When you say something about a particular group of people, you may be saying it about a student’s mother, father, or parent. It’s important to keep that in mind when making decisions about how to discuss things. (Including things that it’s 100% your job to teach your class about).


When you express an opinion about a group of people, your student may hear it as “I think this about your mother”, “I think this about your father”, or “I think this about you and your family.” Don’t forget that, and don’t assume that you will always know who is in the room.

It’s worth speaking with the assumption that there are people in the room who know a member of the group you’re talking about personally. When you’re working with kids, it’s worth speaking with the assumption that this person might be their parent or someone in a parental role.

This is important whether what you’re saying is positive, negative, or neutral. If you speak in a way that assumes that what you’re saying is theoretical for everyone, it can make it very hard for a child to whom it is personal to trust you. And you can’t assume that you will always know a child’s family situation, or that you will always know how a child feels about it.

For instance:


  • Many parents are in prison, have been imprisoned in the past, are facing trial, are on probation, have been arrested, have been accused of crimes, have been convicted, are on house arrest, are facing some other kind of court-ordered punishment or similar.
  • Many parents are police officers, prison guards, judges, prosecutors, probation officers, or in a related role.
  • Many parents (and children) have been the victims of violent crimes. (Including crimes committed by police officers.) Some children may have lost parents this way.
  • All of these people are parents, and most of their children go to school.
  • Some of their kids may be in your class, and you may not know this.
  • Even if you do know about the situation, you probably don’t know how they feel about it.
  • Kids have all kinds of feelings about all of these things (including, often, complicated mixed feelings).
  • If you want to talk about prison issues, crime, justice, legal reform, or any of that, it’s important to keep in mind that whatever you say about one of these groups of people, you may be saying it about a student’s parent.
  • And that you don’t know how they feel. 
  • Speak in a way that gives them space to have opinions, and to be both personally affected and part of the class.
  • If you say “we” and mean “people who aren’t personally connected to this issue”, kids are likely to feel that you are distancing yourself from them and their parents.
  • It’s better to speak with the assumption that what you’re saying applies to the parents of one of your students, and that they may have complicated thoughts and feelings about this.

Similarly:

  • People of all races have children of all races. When you say something about a racial group, you may be saying it about a student’s parent.
  • People with all kinds of disabilities have children. When you say things about disabled people or disabilities, you may be saying it about a student’s parent.
  • (Including blind people, deaf people, autistic people, people with intellectual disabilities, wheelchair users, people with conditions that usually shorten lifespan, and every other kind of disability).
  • When you talk about teenage pregnancy, keep in mind that some students may have parents who were teenagers when they were born.
  • People of all political opinions, including abhorrent opinions, have children. When you say something about members of a political group, you may be saying it about a student’s parent.
  • People who work at McDonalds have children. When you talk about McDonalds workers and people in similar roles, it’s extremely likely that you’re talking about a student’s parent. (Especially if you teach in a public school).
  • Many people who do sex work have children. If you say something about strippers, porn stars, escorts, phone sex operators, dominatrixes, or whoever else, you may be saying it about someone’s mother, father, or parent.
  • People of all faiths and ethnicities have children (who may or may not be raised in their faith). If you say something about a religion or its followers, you may be saying it about the parent of one of your students.
  • And so on.

Being more abstract again:

  • People from all walks of life have kids, and you may be teaching some of their kids.
  • Keep that in mind.
  • Whatever you say about a group of people, you may be saying it about your student’s mother, father, or parent.
  • If you speak about it like it’s an abstract issue that couldn’t apply to anyone in the room, it’s likely to be really alienating.
  • This is true even if what you say is positive or sympathetic.
  • Kids need to be seen and acknowledged. If you speak as though they’re not there, it gets harder for them to trust you.
  • When you speak about a group of people, speak with the assumption that at least one student in the room has a parent who is a member of that group.

(To be clear: I’m not saying don’t talk about these issues. Sometimes it’s 100% your job to talk about these issues. What I am saying is, keep in mind that it may be personal, that you may be talking about a student’s parent, and that you won’t always know that this is the case. Taking this into account makes it possible to teach everyone in the room.)

tl;dr When you’re teaching, keep in mind that the kids in your class probably have parents, and that you don’t know everything about their parents. Their parents may come from any and every walk of life. Keep this in mind when you talk about issues and groups. You may well be talking about a student’s mother, father, family, or parent.
