Because this hash tag is SO FUN and thought-provoking.
GENDER: No one can keep up with humans and gender. There are no easy signs to tell who is what, not clothing, not body morphology, not how they paint themselves or their grooming or vestigal hair. The humans themselves argue about how many genders there are. Eventually they quit trying and refer to all humans as ‘they’. Most humans are fine with that, even compliment them on their support (?) and progressive views (??). A few humans are offended, but are shouted down by their other humans. The other beings of the galaxy officially give up.
SEX: Some humans want to have sex all the time. Others barely can stand to be touched at all, even casually. Some will have sex with their own gender, which does not produce offspring and is confusing to many. Some will have sex only with certain people, some will have sex with anyone. SOME will have sex with other species, occasionally challenging their own safety and everyone else’s. None of this is considered strange. Anyone saying it is strange is again shouted down and shamed into silence. The other beings of the galaxy officially give up.
CATS: Humans adopt small predators as pets and kiss their “widdle faces” and giggle over their clawed toes (???) and fuss and are thrilled when the predators sleep with them (isn’t that UNSAFE? IT IS FULL OF POINTY BITS) and often sport scratches and bite marks inflicted when the animal was ‘playing’. “When were these ‘cats’ domesticated?” “Oh, we never really domesticated them. We just let them move into the house with us. Aren’t they CUUUUUTE? Come here, baby.” -kissy noises- The other beings of the galaxy again give up.
RELIGION: Wars fought. Millions - probably billions, through history - killed. Crew members huffy with each other. Various holidays celebrated, none of which make sense, some of them celebrating events that are physically impossible and could not have happened. All for something that can’t be proved. The other beings of the galaxy would think this was all an elaborate prank if it wasn’t for the body count.
GERMS: Humans get INFECTED and act as if it is a personal affront, and cuss about it. They confine themselves to quarters so they don’t infect the rest of the crew - very kind, in that respect - and otherwise wrap themselves in bedding and bitch about it for three days while doing their work by remote - “It’s fine, just a cold.” followed by horrifying noises they call ‘coughing’ and ‘sneezing’ - and HOW. HOW DO THEY EVEN. The other beings of the galaxy, for whom infection is always life-threatening, boggle from a safe distance. With respirators on.
ALPHA PREDATOR…? They come from a death planet, these naked apes with no armor, no fangs, no speed. They have the ability to conquer the galaxy, if they only agreed with each other long enough that it was their goal. Instead they poke their noses into other death worlds, ‘exploring’, they call it, adopting horrifying creatures and making friends with other predatory beings, brewing poisonous beverages from whatever they can scrounge, which they then drink for fun. The rest of the galaxy is relieved. If humans had an attention span, they would truly be in trouble.
No one wants to know what a ‘shark’ is. Humans seem to be afraid of them, and if it frightens the humans, the rest of the galaxy is, to a being, terrified.

It’s as if you don’t care where you’re going, you just want to be on your way and we all want to join you! The life of the party, it’s never boring when you’re around and you naturally adapt so well to every circumstance you’re put into.

Unconventionally mysterious, you draw others in by looking as though you’re unfazed by whatever is happening around you. We want to see what’s behind your eyes and how you’re just so darn cool. Watching you really let loose is something that we aspire to witness because it doesn’t happen often but when it does, it’s something you don’t want to miss.

Successful, respectful, rational and fun - what’s not to love about a Capricorn Rising?

Idealistic, endearing, tolerant and logical - what’s not to love about an Aquarius Rising?
Pisces Rising: Your dreamy, far off gaze makes us wonder what you’re thinking and seeing around you. You so easily adapt to different people, it seems as if you can change your whole personality for each person you come across; a social chameleon. This, of course, means people can’t help but love you and they flock towards your open heart. Some of the most compassionate people we know, you’re always helping other people or animals. We know you’re living in your own little world and we wish you’d show us around; I’m sure it’s beautiful. Your ability to just let things go and move on is admirable to those of us who struggle with forgiveness. Empathetic, open, intuitive and generous - what’s not to love about a Pisces Rising?
You will be surprised at how fast I can turn this love into hatred, and hatred into indifference. You were never real to begin with. You never existed. That alone forced me to move on. And I am moving on.
To all the fake emotional manipulators in my life; I refuse to become a victim.
@swiftwidget and I were talking about the newest chapter which lead to her Symbol of Hope post, and I’d like to add my thoughts which emphasize her points. (EDIT: This got longer than expected!!!)
First, the closing lines of chapter 154:
LET US MOVE BEYOND DESPAIR!!
Despair. The complete loss of hope.
Izuku. The boy no one saw coming. Toshinori never imagined finding his successor in such a way. Revealing his weakness, his uncertainty, his fear. But time and time again, Izuku was there. He disrupts the wavering peace and creeping despair, bringing about hope.
Bakugou. Uraraka. Aizawa. All Might over and over. Todoroki. Iida. EVEN STAIN!* And most recently, Lock Rock, Eri, and Mirio.
Izuku brings hope wherever he goes.
He twists their apparent fates.
Bakugou would have diedbecause of the sludge villain. No one else was acting to save him, even All Might!! But because of Izuku, a quirkless boy, his leap into action caused All Might to surpass his current limits and save them both. The catalyst for change.
Uraraka she could have been seriously injured or died during that exam! There may have been safety measures taken into account, but that giant robot was barreling towards her. Everyone else was running away. Except Izuku.
Aizawa, ready to expel a boy for repeatedly destroying his own body, is amazed by Izuku’s drive, endurance, and willingness to learn and better his control over his self-destructive quirk. He gave Aizawa hope - surpassing his expectations again and again. USJ. Summer Training Camp. Kamino. Overhaul’s hideout. Aizawa holds an immense amount of hope and pride in Izuku, even if he scarcely admits it.
Do I even need to say more?
The hope he gives to the others is blatant and I want to mention Stain again.
Stain was disillusioned. Heroes, villains, they were all the same, falling to their vices. Pride, greed, revenge, etc. Iida only proved his point that today’s heroes are a far cry from his ideal version of a true hero, “All Might.” In Stain’s eyes only a select few were deemed worthy enough to call themselves heroes… Finally ready to turn his back on even children, still learning and growing, here comes Izuku! Bringing hope to Stain and Iida alike.
A boy like this… He has the makings of a true hero. A hero who follows the teachings of All Might.
And GUESS WHAT! If it weren’t for Izuku butting his nose in, Iida would have died and Stain would likely still be at large, still lacking the audience he needs and wants for his message. Without Izuku, there wouldn’t have been that recorded confrontation with Endeavor. Stain would still be in the back streets, voiceless, preaching to victims who would fall by his hand.
Stain saved Izuku from the noumu. He didn’t have to. He could have easily taken another hostage. But IZUKU proved himself to be a true hero in Stain’s eyes. Someone worth saving. A budding seed. Hope for the new generation of heroes Stain was trying to create. Stain’s roles: “[False] Hero Killer” and “[True] Hero Breeder”
Izuku truly isthe Symbol of Hope. Of change. Defying fate. Hope is not something that can be seen. If you are certain of something you can’t have hope. It is the time of uncertainty when hope is most needed.
Sir Nighteye made a mistake in looking into All Might’s future.
All Might needed hope. Hope that he would recover, return to being a hero. Instead, Sir gave him certainty.The certainty that All Might would fall and die at the hands of a villain. And what did Toshinori do? He accepted his fate. He did not hope to change it. He would fall, and he would die, but he would try his hardest to save those he could. HOWEVER, amidst the certainty that he would die… Izuku was there. Toshinori had hope. He had a need to survive. Rather than placing his life in the hands of certainty, he tossed that certainty aside and trusted in hope.

hey u ever think about how the real tragedy of the last of us is ultimately….it was meaningless. at least from ellie’s point of view - all those people that died, riley and marlene (most notably) and countless others just to further her and joel’s journey.
and at the end of the day she doesn’t even have joel. she doesn’t even get that because she knows he lied, she knows that even though he made that decision the blame is not entirely his, it never can be.
the things they did, the terrible terrible violence she inflicted wasn’t worth anything - there was no payoff, no redemption. she’s just stuck now, stuck with the things she’s done and the knowledge that she might’ve become someone she never wanted to be. her and joel’s relationship is a sliding scale, they both move closer to each other as ellie redeems him and he corrupts her. it cost ellie everything, and it cost joel nothing. because in his eyes it was worth it. and in her eyes, it never will be.
Lemme rant to you about this one scene in the Horrificator for one second, or a lot of seconds, okay? Because after this, you cannot tell me that Adrien Agreste does not know how he affects Marinette. I mean you can, but Ima be like ‘well that one scene in the Horrificator…’
So Marinette and Adrien are about to do the Acting thing together, right? and Marinette is doing the Freaking Out thing and the Being Creepy thing and is just staring at Adrien like so:
Notice also that Adrien has his eyes closed and his head tilted just so because this little dork is trying to look good okay? Ever had someone do your makeup before? It doesn’t make you look like a greek god basking in the sunlight:
It makes you look like this:
And previous tothis moment, it made Adrien look like this:
So anyways, Marinette says somethin’ stupid as she does and Adrien responds by looking at her LIKE THIS:
And he’s all “What’s that?” in this sultry fudging voice. Who says “what’s that” in response to a girl squealing? Who looks like that when a girl is squealing unless you know that the girl is squealing FOR YOU?
But let us move on for a sec. Because what does this lil’ pancake do next? He tells her that she’ll do fine because she is Freaking Out and then he… What?
For reference, here is what Adrien looked like when he was gonna kiss Chloe:
And now Mari:
That boy is ready.
Adrien Agreste fudging knows that Marinette likes him and he is all for it.
So here’s what I want to know: why isn’t the fudger dating her yet?
Imagine The Losers Club as the most dysfunctional superhero team
ok but listen i Love this so much i could even write a fic for this au have some headcanons about their abilities;
Bill:Telekinesis. Bill can move litterally anything he wants with his mind. at first it was little stuff like a pen or a paper sheet, but the more he grown up, the bigger his power became. he’ll soon discover his abilities are, in fact, related to his emotions, and the stronger the emotions he will feel will be, the bigger the objets he will be able to move will get, even people. “no Stan, I won’t l-l-let you move. You’ll come with us and save this f-f-fucking city.”
Richie:Invisibility. Richie can render himself unseen by everyone and do whatever he wants without being seen. he keeps using his power on bad purposes like to annoy the other members of the team and scaring them all the time, or to steals stuff ”oooOOOOooh i’m the ghost of Eddie’s underpant, flying through the house!!!”
Stan:Telepathy. Stan can read people’s mind, but also affect their minds/thoughts. It started with terrible headaches, then he started hearing voices that werent his (the poor boy was terrified). Now he has learn how to control his power and can choose to hear only one person’s thoughts at once ”….I wish I didn’t hear what you were thinking about, Richie. You’re so gross…..”
Eddie:Healing factor. Just by touching someone’s injury, Eddie can heal it and take all of their pain. Unfortunately, it’s only working on other people, but not on himself. He discovered his powers by touching a bird which couldn’t fly, and flew away as soon as his hand touched it. ”Could you stop hurting yourself on purpose all the fucking time to see if my power still works?? Of course it still works!!”
Mike:Fire Manipulation. Mike can create, shape and manipulate fire with his hands. Like the other members of his team, he couldn’t control his power, and everytime he would have a strong (negative) emotion, he would create fire. Unfortunately, his power was also the cause of many incendies, inclunding his own house… ”If you tell me one more time “hot damn” I swear to god…”
Ben: Enhanced Strength. Ben can lift approximately 10 tons with his hands, he can crush, lift, throw, or catch items of great weight without hurting himself. Like most members of the team, Ben’s abilities gets stronger when he gets a negative feeling, especially anger or sadness. Scared to hurt people, Ben can’t touch anyone until he will be able to have a better control of his own strenght ”I’ve already told you; I won’t carry all your bikes in my arms because you guys don’t want to ride them home…”
Beverly:Plants manipulation. Beverly can create, shape and manipulate plants, including trees, vines, flowers, but also part of the plants (leaves/fruits). She can also revive withered or dead plants just by touching them with her hands, make them grown flowers, fruits. yea… kinda like Poison Ivy! The other members of the team love her power, she’s also the one who made them their “secret base” as they’re calling it; a cabin on a tree
anonymous said: GIRL!!! imma need you to write something about jungkook teasing a girl with a popsickle and making her suck it (bc idk he might have seen her w one a few moments before) then getting it off of her mouth and slowly making her get down on her knees and put the popsickle right new to his crotch AND U KNOW WHAT TO WRITE AFTER THAT!!!

8 Essential Things You Need For Your Healing Journey
1. Meditation - check in with yourself. We need to make time to be present with ourselves and observe the thoughts that dominate our minds. During meditation we can practice allowing these thoughts to move on without attaching ourselves to them - this helps to release the past & move forward.
2. Nature - fill your mind with peace. Immersing ourselves in environments with trees, flowing water and animals is important for allowing ourselves time to detoxify the mind of the subconscious imagery pick up in our day to day lives.
3. Exercise - work out pent-up emotions. The healing journey consists of releasing difficult emotions and allowing them to flow freely. Exercise helps us to release this energy in a way that’s beneficial for the body and the mind.
4. Peace - remove unnecessary headaches. We need to prioritise our peace of mind whilst on this healing journey and we do this by only spending time with people who make us feel good. There is no room for negativity when we’re trying to heal ourselves.
5. Authenticity - be yourself. Healing ourselves requires us to acknowledge that being true to ourselves releases much of the resistance we can feel within - this has been built up by not prioritising what we want out of life and in order to remove it we must start by being honest with ourselves.
6. Positive energy - surround yourself with people you love. The energy of people who support us is essential for this journey because they will help us to elevate when dealing with difficult emotions. In hard times we need to keep our loved ones close and negativity far away.
7. Mindfulness - be in the now. Practicing present moment awareness is key for being able to heal because it reminds us that we are not our thoughts. Indeed we may have been through hard times but being in the now allows us to create a fulfilling human experience - rather than being a prisoner of our thoughts.
8. Hobbies - do what you love. Doing what we love helps us heal because it brings us into the now and allows us to express ourselves. Having a creative outlet to express how we’re feeling allows us to let the emotions within move through us instead of being held inside and causing our suffering.
