future fic where 1d is performing at glastonbury and louis decides to bring baby tommo along, loving that his kid can really take part in and enjoy his career alongside with him, which didn’t always feel possible

unfortunately, while he and the boys are on stage, baby tommo escapes their babysitter and runs away–straight into nick grimshaw’s arms

and that’s where a very frantic louis finds them, surprised to see how well nick is doing with his precious child and decides to invite him to dinner to repay him for taking care of his offspring so well.

Do you have any HC for what Kurt would do if he was jealous?

ofc -mod pietro

  • Kurt would be really pouty, and would pull a bunch of pranks to grab his partner’s attention. 
  • Not really his usual “going all out” pranks, but something silly, like typing confetti poppers to the bottom of a their chair, so when they swivel they all pop. 
  • He’d also tend to be more clingy, always draped around his partner’s neck, giving them lots of cheek kisses.
  • If he got super jealous, he might pull them into a closet, and leave marks on their neck. When they got out, he’d have a huge smirk on his face.

Don’t demonize Hel or any of Loki’s children. Hel is appointed her duty by the Allfather, she is given charge over not only the wicked but the old and the sick, for she is kind and welcomes those at the end of their life. Helheim is not a place of punishment, but that of rest and Hel welcomes us in.

Don’t demonize Fenrir. Without him or his sons, there would be no Ragnarok, but the end is as important as the beginning for without death, there can be no rebirth. Just as the Earth is reborn in the spring so are the Aesir after the end. Fenrir brings death so there can be new life.

The Aesir are not the only ones deserving of our respect.

Tbh...

A lot of people aren’t pro-life, they are pro-birth. They want a woman to bring this “beautiful life” in the world against her will and situation then get mad when she can’t afford to raise it and mock and devalue her for being on government assistance. Yeah…they want her to have that baby but they don’t want to help her take care of it. This is her punishment for life for fucking, aka sinnin’. Essentially they are telling that mother, ironically and amusingly enough, to go fuck herself and to take that “beautiful life” with her and deal with it. They only care about the unborn…then immediately stop caring once it’s here.

We punish ourselves so much in our own imaginations. We convince ourselves everything we do, everything we think, is wrong.
For eighteen years I’ve believed what other people told me about what was right and what was wrong. From now. I’m deciding.

Joke callout posts trivialize abuse and aren't funny

It’s been less than a month since several popular Tumblr users were “called out” for pedophilia in multiple posts, over the course of a few days. Now I’m starting to see satirical callout posts crop up (such as “Callout for myself/my friend who’s done nothing serious wrong/some character: [lists a minor flaw]”) on my dash, and frankly it makes me angry.

This matter is nothing to joke about. Victims’ lives were forever altered, and crimes were committed for which the perpetrators will probably never be formally tried and punished in a court of law. It isn’t a matter of someone simply being “problematic,” or anything else less serious than someone committing a crime that is rightfully punished by prison sentence and inflicting potentially life-ruining abuse. Please have some basic human decency, understand the gravity of the crimes committed, and quit making light of victims’ pain.

Wood? thought Harry, bewildered; was wood a cane she was going to use on him?

J K Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

The first time I read this part of the book, I thought it was hilarious. But then I re-read it and re-read it and each time I went over this line it became sadder and sadder, especially as I grew older. Probably because I was more mature than the 8 year old I had been when I first picked up the Philosopher’s Stone. But now as my world view changes and I am exposed to more of the horrors of every day life, I would like to bring to light the relevance of how corporal punishment  was the disciplinary method at the forefront of Harry’s 11 year old mind. And it is for this reason that I think the Dursley’s have a hell of a lot to answer for.

Why are Malec fans busy hating on Lydia Branwell when they should be focusing on how much more intense the Malec storyline is going to be? An arranged marriage storyline isn’t a cop-out - it’s actually a small part of a bigger picture.

The Shadowhunters version of Alec Lightwood wouldn’t dare disobey Clave Law. He knows the consequences of doing so, has seen his parents punished by the Clave his entire life without understanding why, and he’s going to be locked into something that will keep him safe and solidify the Clave’s favor for both he and his family. The show is actually raising the stakes, much higher than they’ve ever been. And in the end he’ll still choose Magnus.

Hating Lydia Branwell and the marriage storyline is essentially redundant. It’s not about them in the slightest. It’s about Alec coming to love Magnus that much that he is willing to face punishment and dishonor for it, and breaking the importance of that down to just a girl and an unwanted marriage storyline is to not give Malec enough credit.

I dare you to write about a character on death row

Be creative! What is the character’s crime? Are they innocent or are they guilty? In what way will the punishment be carried out? What is their life like as they await their final days? What do they think of? Regrets? Good memories or bad ones? If they are guilty, do they feel any remorse or simply regret being caught?

Think outside the box!

If you’re brave enough to post, don’t forget to tag I dare you to write and indicate whether or not concrit is welcome.

“Ignorance is bliss
happiness is ambition
desolation is knowledge
pain is acceptance
despair is anger
denial is helpless
martyrism is hope for others
advantages taken are causes of martyrism
revenge is sorrow
death is a reprieve
life is a punishment
others’ achievements are tormentations
people are alike
i am different”
