listen to a 23 year old

If I were being totally blunt and honest, I had no interest really in listening to the record. I wasn’t even terribly curious about it. But I kept hearing from people… Well first of all he put out this epic single a little while back about six minutes long called ‘Sign of the Times’ which I thought, 'Gosh this sounds like Bowie crossed with Pink Floyd.’ I mean it’s absolutely the last sound you expect from this kid. And I was reading an interview that he gave with the New York Times… and he said you know once he finally stepped out on his own and got to do whatever he wanted, he said, 'I want to make a record that I would listen to and I grew up listening to The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd and The Beatles.’ And you hear, as you heard on that song ['Carolina’], you hear the influences throughout this entire record. I think it’s pretty striking. He really does a great job with it. He’s only 23 years old, so I’m really looking forward to seeing where he goes with all of this. I’m just impressed that he was able to make such a left turn from everything that he knew leading up to this point.

Satanic Murder
Jarno Elg

On the 21st of November 1998 in Finland, Jarno Elg, 17 year old girl Terhi Tervashonka, Mika Riska and a 16 year old boy brutally tortured, murdered and dismembered and ate an unnamed 23 year old male. The gang went to the home and strangled him to death, then dissected his body parts for a satanic ritual whilst listening to Norweigan black metal band Ancient’s album, The Cainian Chronicle.

A leg was found at a local dumpsite prompting the investigation authorities labelled, “The Dumpsite Murder”

This case was labelled one of the worst in Finnish history, in detail information has been sealed for 40 years.

During trial, Tervashonka was declared legally insane

Jarno Elg was sentenced to life
Terhi Tervashonka served a few years before being released in 2003
Mika Riska served 2 years

In 2007, Tervashonka murdered again and received a 10 year sentence

okay but the more i listen to sweet creature, the more i think that harry is so…young? like he’s just 23 years old and he’s been in a relationship for 7 years now, he was only SIXTEEN and they are still there, together, and it only got stronger, i just…he’s so YOUNG and he talks about love in this deep and /real/ way already, i don’t know how many 23 year-old would know how to talk about love the way harry does… i’m impressed. 

anonymous asked:

He is giggling so much during the nick interview and also today with dermot....if I didn't know how old he is now, I would think we were listening to a 16 yr old harry styles....

No, were listening to a 23 year old Harry Styles that is finally allowed to let his guards down.

He can giggle and be silly, he doesn’t need to hurry up when he’s speaking, he doesn’t have to worry that someone is going to bring up how many people he has sex with a week, he’s just Harry. He gets to be Harry. And honestly, I’m so happy he gets to be Harry because I love him and he deserves it.

Harry Styles interview: Music is 'like therapy,' and 'honesty' is his drug
The' self-titled debut album from the One Direction singer comes out Friday.

Promoting a new album is hard work, and for Harry Styles, that work involves gamely commenting on One Direction fan-fiction theories.

“Oh, is that a thing?” he said, amused by the internet chatter linking his new song Sweet Creature to his 1D bandmate Louis Tomlinson. “Well, whatever it is that it makes one feel. But I think if you listen to the lyrics, you can work out what it’s about.”

Styles’ charming, British-accented modesty aside, the 23-year-old One Direction singer is poised to become one of the world’s biggest pop stars with the release of his self-titled debut album (out Friday), a collection of music that Styles describes as “songs about stories, and another group of songs delving into, ‘Why did I feel like that.’”

His first single Sign of the Times was a Biblically-epic debut, drawing comparisons to David Bowie and Elton John, a logical progression from the classic-rock nostalgia heard on One Direction’s final two albums. But Styles, and his similarly-aged fans, grew up in an era of music where genre distinctions have melted together, and his album spends just as much time dabbling in twangy folk and modern alt-pop than the stadium-rock of his former band.

On 22 October, 1966, Robert Sims, his wife, Helen, and their 12-year-old daughter, Joy, were at home listening to a college football game between Florida State University and Mississippi State. The couple had two older teenage daughters, Jeanie and Judy, who were both out babysitting.

Jeanie arrived home that night at around 23:00 and was horrified to discover that her parents and younger sister, Joy, had been brutally murdered. All three had been bound and their mouths stuffed with stockings. Robert and Helen had been blindfolded and shot dead while Joy was raped and stabbed six times before being shot in the head. Helen was miraculously still clinging to life but fell into a coma before she could give any information as to who could have done such a thing to a family who had seemingly no enemies.

Among a few suspects were a teenage couple who had stood out to authorities but they were never named due to never being made official suspects but authorities recall them acting quite odd and being strangely obsessed with the investigation. The case still remains unsolved today.

Beatle George Harrison toured the Haight-Ashbury yesterday peering through lavender glasses, strumming a guitar and eventually drawing a huge following of flower children behind him. Harrison, called “the quiet Beatle,” and his wife Patti, first parked at Masonic Avenue and Haight Street about 6 p.m. and wandered down the street unnoticed among the throng of hippies. Harrison sported the drooping French moustache, long hair, buttons, flowered trousers, denim jacket and heart-shaped shades affected by many members of the love generation. And 23-year-old wife Patti could have been just about any hippie girl with her long blonde hair and granny glasses.

The two walked the length of Haight Street looking into the shops and watching the local residents and finally stopped at “hippie hill” in Golden Gate Park. A young man was entertaining a crowd of about 20 hippies. Harrison and his wife listened for a minute and then Harrison asked, “Can I borrow your guitar?” The young man said “Sure.” Harrison took the guitar and started to play. And played unrecognized for about three minutes. A girl listened and looked at Harrison then started shouting: “Hey! That’s George Harrison. That’s George Harrison!” … A sizeable crowd formed. Harrison played for about ten more minutes and then shouted, “Let’s go for a walk.” And off they went, Harrison strumming the guitar, the hippies following along. As the crowd left the park it grew. “What do you think of the Haight-Ashbury?” asked a hippie. “Wow. If it’s all like this it’s too much,” Harrison answered.

Can we talk about Ben Platt?

I remember watching Pitch Perfect and seeing these really talented singers and actors that I knew but was immediately draw to the character Benji. Sweet, adorkable, hella-talented cinnamon roll that puts his heart and soul into his passions. I was like, who is this guy in real life? BEN PLATT … gotta keep tabs on this boy, he is going places!! I just know it!! So, I’m sitting here watching the highlights from the 2017 Tony Awards just because I’m still so happy for the Dear Evan Hansen team and so proud of all of the wonderful people that perform and spread light and love through music. But I’m watching that precious being that is Ben Platt and every single time he is mentioned or graces the stage that whole auditorium fills with applause and support. Everyone in that hall erupts with praise and it feels completely genuine that they are so proud of Ben. How amazing and slightly daunting that must be for this superbly talented 23-year-old? I mean, Ben has put so much into the personification of Evan and touched so many people with his performances and that is so beautiful to me as someone who is also in that field. And it’s incredibly inspiring to see a peer take that kind of praise and still remain so humble and direct that focus to the heart of what DEH’s story is truly about. (And it’s is such a poignantly beautiful story… listen to the music… go see it if you can… take tissues…) But my main point is that I’m just so immeasurably proud of Ben Platt and I hope he is having a great day and gets to eat cheesecake and pizza soon because he deserves it.

Today is EunB’s death anniversary. She would’ve been 25 years old this year. EunB, if you’re listening, and if you’re reading this in heaven, I love you, and so many Lavely’s do as well. We all do EunB.

You will always be loved and remembered, Go Eun Bi. We love you, and hope you’re happy.

And to the other members, we hope you’re happy now, and are worry less. The other two are very happy, in a better place now.

25 Movies You Have To See Before You Turn 25

1. Almost Famous

The exact moment I decided to be a writer was while watching Almost Famous. In fact I paused the film around halfway through because I was hit by a wave of inspiration and had to go write something. A poem, I think. I’d always written, but this film made it look like something one could do as a job, and that it might lead me on strange and interesting adventures. Mostly it’s a film about being different and weird and finding acceptance for it through your art, and that spoke to me on so many levels. I’m different! I’m weird! I write! Maybe I can do this?! Thirteen years later, I’ve still not been on tour with a rock band, but I do write for a living. Thanks, Cameron Crowe.
Daniel Dalton

2. Trainspotting

Taught me the following lessons:

Don’t do heroin.
Save your money.
Listen to your heart, not your friends.
Don’t do heroin.
Scotland is interesting.
Be careful who you pick up when you go to a club.
Don’t do heroin.
Always use protection.
Fries are called chips in Scotland.
Don’t hang around criminals.
Don’t have kids.

And don’t do heroin.
Norberto Briceno

3. Hoop Dreams

Hoop Dreams is the greatest documentary ever made and was what taught me to start thinking about privilege and poverty and how that relates to “following your dreams” or whatever, when I was a young stupid teenager constantly being told to follow my dreams.
Summer Anne Burton

4. The Breakfast Club

It will remind you that individuality is the key to being happy. You do you. Never pretend to be someone you’re not.
Anna Neyman

5. Laurence Anyways

Aside from having exceptional cinematography and a soundtrack you will keep listening to after the fact, Laurence Anyways grapples with gender identity in the 21st century and what happens to everyone around you when you do decide to transition. Not only that, but Xavier Dolan was an impressive 23 years old when he directed this film.

tim-zi-vil  asked:

Hi! First time in NSFW saturday and do you think Victor and Yuuri would sometimes play a game and if Yuuri wins, Victor would be on a chastity cage while getting fucked on a sybian and if Victor wins he get to tie Yuuri up, puts a vibrator up his ass and power-bottom the fuck out of his wonderful husband like hsbskdbksjs

HOLY FUCK WHAT IS THIS BEAUTY THAt GrACES MY EYES??????

um WOW 

short answer: yes.

long answer: ahdjsjfkdffjgjkdsau this sounds. amazing. like they just play something ridiculously stupid like war or go fish and if yuuri wins, he doms the fuck out of him.  puts the cage on him and gags him and fingers him open as slowly and agonizingly as he possibly can, taking him all the way up to four fingers before he finally takes pity on him.  By three fingers in, victor is groaning with every movement and he’s pretty sure he’s about to break the cage, his cock is so hard, but yuuri isn’t done with him yet. oh no. now, he get’s to be fucked by a machine while yuuri messes with the remote control, randomly having the thing vibrate or speed up or slow down.  and to top it all off, yuuri sits not three feet in front of him on the couch and plays with himself the entire time, so victor gets to stare at yuuri’s cock directly in front of him and not be able to suck it or even touch it.  Victor was on the verge of tears when yuuri had four fingers inside him, but less than a minute into being fucked by the sybian and he’s choking on sobs, tears streaming down his face.  oh fuck, yuuri thinks. i’m gonna have to pamper the shit out of him when this is over.

and i’m gonna love it.


if victor wins, however, victor switches it up and basically uses yuuri as his sex toy, tying him down on the bed and blindfolding him, sticking a vibrator in his ass and telling yuuri not to talk, but not gagging him because he still wants to hear his noises clearly.  Yuuri doesn’t talk, because he knows what he is in that moment.  He is not katsuki yuuri, 23 years old, dime-a-dozen figure skater; he is Victor Nikiforov’s sex toy.  He doesn’t say anything, he holds still as much as he can, he listens to victor’s every command.  He doesn’t come until Victor says he can.  He’s completely gone.

oh fuck, victor thinks. i’m gonna have to take care of him SO MUCH when this is over.

and i’m gonna love it.

Hayate Gekkō appreciation post.

Hayate Gekkō died early in the series, so many people do not remember him but listen, l i s t e n. He is not only a hero of Konoha and a Cinnamon Roll but also a badass fucking ninja.

He’s a 175 cm high ball of strength. Also, note that he was around 23 years old when he died. 23. Why does it matter? Because he was also 23 when this happend:

It’s a fight between Hayate and Baki right after Hayate Crescent Mooned him.  Look at Baki. He is almost 10 years older than Hayate and also a very advenced Jounin, while Gekko is just a Tokubetsu Jonin. Yet look at this expressions and the way he stands. He is in horrible pain. Imagine if Hayate happen to land his attack a little bit better or imagine if he could pull his sword out of Baki’s arm.

He could kill him.

You thing I’m overanalyzing, don’t you? Remember Anko? And how strong she was?

According to the stats, Hayate is even stronger than her. She gets around 24 total while Gekko 24.5.

Also, Hayate is ill. He has a low level of stamina and strength. All of his skills are based on amazing intelligence and ninjutsu. You know Genma? Hayate is smarter than him.
He uses his mind and thanks to it he was able to become an amazing ninja. He doesn’t belong to any of the clans, he doesn’t have sharingans or bijuus. He only has his katana and excellent mind.

Imagine if Hayate was healthy. Imagine.


Oh yeah, let’s talk about his main technique, Crescent Moon Dance. Hayate is able to create clones (kage bushins, not just clones!) with only one hand. Not only that, he is can create them quickly enough, so the enemy thinks it’s Hayate attacking from three different sides.  It is an A level technique and Baki himself was surprised that a Tokubetsu Jonin was able to master it.

Not only that, in anime Hayate can turn invisible. Like, just poof, gone. Only he and Jiraiya are capable of such thing. If it does not impress you, I don’t know what will.


Oh and look at this. It’s Hayate is smiling. Why? Because Sasuke won his duel. He is proud of him. Yeah, look at this, this badass kid is from my village. He cares about the genins, about all of them. The whole “it’s Chuunin Exams you might die and we won’t care” is just a game. They’re supposed to think they will die but Hayate is there for a reason. If something goes too wild he’ll stop the duel. Nobody is dying as long as this Cinnamon is on the watch ok.

Summary: Hayate is great I love him and you should too.

“Alright that was the last box in the truck.” Ethan says as he sets the last box on my kitchen table. I look around my new apartment. I was accepted into NYU for a criminal justice program and I was too excited. My best friends, Ethan and and Grayson, came all the way to New York to help me unpack into my new place.

“Alright thanks you guys so much!” I opened my arms to give them the biggest hugs a friend could possibly give. “I feel since you two are my best friends and will want to visit often, here you two go.” I went to a locksmith and had him make me two extra keys. One for each of the boys to have. They both looked up at me and gave me another hug.

“Gosh Y/N why do you have to be so old?” Ethan asked as he examined his key. “Like you’re almost 23 and you move to NYC why?” Ethan asks me which Grayson just rolls her eyes.

“Hush Ethan. Y/N I think it’s great you moved out here to do your field training. Really. However, we’ll miss you back in LA.” Grayson says smiling.

“You two have a lot of stuff to do with youtube anyways. We all need to live our lives at some point right?” I said as a sad smile came across my face. I would be going to courts and learning how trials worked while my two best friends would be creating more youtube videos and getting famous by the second.

“Yo Gray we have to go. Oscar wants to see us at 8am in his office.” Ethan states as he stares at his phone. Gray and E give me another hug before they walk outside.

“Hey Y/N can we talk?” Grayson asks me halfway out the door.

“Yeah sure what’s–” Ethan’s hollering interrupts me.

“Grayson!” Ethan shouts as Gray looks towards the car and Ethan just hook his head. Grayson then looks back to me.

“I’ll miss you.” He gives me another hug, before he runs out to the truck and drive back down the road towards the airport. I decided to start unpacking and get comfortable before the moment hits me where I’m all by myself out here. I went outside to take the trash out when I saw some guy sitting outside. He was about six feet tall and had a chiseled jaw. He had a little bit of scruff on his face like Ethan’s beard and he was covered in tattoos. He had gauges and dark hair. He was probably the most beautiful man I have ever seen in my life.

He turned and looked to me which I immediately blushed. Just then I came in head to head contact with the grass.

“Oh my gosh are you okay?” I heard him ask as he rushed over to my aid. I was just trying to take the trash out and now my face was full of grass and dirt.

“Yeah I must have just tripped.” I said as I try to stand up, but of course the attractive stranger had to help me.

“Yeah these stairs aren’t the sturdiest.” He chuckles as he looks at the stairs and then back to me. “I’ve never seen you around here before. I’m James.” He introduces which I smiled.

“I’m Y/N and I just moved in from LA.” His eyes grew wide. “I study at NYU.” I said and he nods.

“I went to NYU for a few years, then I opened up my own restaurant and now I’m here relaxing.” He looks around and watches me. “I take it since you are new you might want someone to show you around?” He asks as I blush at his offer. “Let me take you out to my restaurant tonight and I’ll show you around Y/N.” He says and I nodded agreeing to him.

“Yeah that sounds great! Thanks James.” I thoughtfully said. I didn’t want to come off as too excited, but I also didn’t want to come off as I didn’t care.

“Cool I’ll be by your apartment at six. What’s your apartment?” He asked and I obviously looked behind me since I never made my trip to the trash can. “Oh right. You’re two rooms down from me. Well I’ll see you at six tonight Y/N.” He smiles and looks to the trash. “And let me take that for you.” Before I can protest, he takes the trash and walks away from me. I couldn’t wait to skype Ethan and Gray and tell them about James.

***Three Months Later***

James and I have been seeing each other nonstop since the first day I moved in. He felt my slightly red hair that curled and bounced was just too beautiful. He claimed my skin was a beautiful bronze color and that my skin was incredibly smooth. He would stay in my apartment or I would stay at his and we would just fall asleep together, but tonight was different. James and I were in my bed and he was on top of me kissing me hard. He was shirtless and I was just in my panties and bra. It’s been about two and a half months since I’ve talked to the twins that I haven’t told them about James and I’s escalating relationship. James was 24 years old as I was 23 and he was absolutely perfect. He kissed all around my collarbone and left purple marks after each kiss. He was honestly so perfect. He’s been so busy with the restaurant that tonight we celebrated my 23rd birthday almost three weeks later. We went out for drinks which obviously was the main influence for this current situation. “James.” I pushed him back as I was panting. His lips just reconnected to mine as his hand went in between my thighs which caused a light moan to escape my lips.

Whatever was happening between us was so loud that I didn’t hear the front door open at all. Our kisses were getting hotter and heavier as I felt his hardon press against my thigh which I slightly jumped. I connected our lips again as he firmly pressed against me in my underwear. “Who the fuck is this Y/N?” I heard the familiar voice of Grayson ask which made James jump and turn around.

“Y/N who is this? You never told me about an ex boyfriend.” James says as he begins to slide off of me. I slip on my robe as James and Gray look to each other as if they are sizing up each other.

“He’s not an ex boyfriend. He’s an old friend I haven’t talked to in almost three months and I don’t why he’s freaking here.” I said slightly annoyed to Grayson who just rolled his eyes.

“I’m here because you gave me a key welcoming E and I to your apartment anytime remember? Or were you too lost in this dude’s tattoos to remember Ethan and I?” He asks me, but gestures towards James.

“Hey listen here prick, I can snap you in half. Don’t test me.” James says which sends a chill throughout my body. James did tell me he wrestled throughout high school, which I knew Gray did too.

“First of all, you’re the prick here. I came to see my friend and I see her kissing some doodle bear.” Grayson scoffs gesturing towards James tattoos.

“Hey you guys calm down.” I said, but James pushed me back.

“Don’t you fucking touch her.” Grayson then squares up to James and James square’s him up. The boys were now inches from each other. I tried to break them apart, but before I knew it, Gray shoved James back and soon a brawl had started. James was shoved into my hope chest as Grayson swung a few times and pushed him to the ground. While James was on the ground he tripped Grayson and then climbed on top and started pushing him straight in the face.

“Guys stop!” I screamed but that didn’t help. James was mercilessly punching Gray in the face as Grayson tried to wiggle free. Finally Grayson kneed James in the balls which sent James into the fetal position as Grayson started kicking him as hard as he could in the chest area. “Grayson! Fucking stop!” I screamed as I tried to break the fight up again, but it was no use. I then started to cry, but I wasn’t going to give up. “Grayson.” I sobbed which I knew would catch his attention as he stopped kicking James. I got on my knees in front of James as I helped him up.

“I’ll come back when he leaves. I’m going to go lie down.” He then hobbles out of the room and leaves Grayson and I.

“Grayson what the fuck? Where did you ever get the idea–”

“How the hell could you do that?” He cuts me off as he huffs out exhausted huffs. “I came here to see you and I see you kissing another fucking guy? What the fuck Y/N?” He was panting and I was extremely confused.

“Excuse me?” I was obviously confused.

“I fucking like you. I should have never listened to Ethan that day when he shook his head no, because if I didn’t that could have been me kissing all over your neck and feeling your touch.” Grayson looks back to the bed and then shudders. I shook my head confused.

“Grayson you’re almost 18. I just turned 23 years old. We can’t be together. It’s wrong.” I protested as I turned away from Grayson, which he pulls me back into him as I slam against his chest.

“Give me one reason why it’s wrong Y/N.” His tone changed. He went from harsh and angry Grayson to loving and concerned Gray. The Gray I loved and adored. The Gray that was always more than a friend in my heart.

“I’m older.” Was all I could say before his lips gently landed on mine as his kiss was full of passion and tenderness. His hands grabbed the back of my neck as he pushed me into his kiss. My heart started to pound as I was in shock.

I quickly reacted as my hands tangled in his hair. I cleared my head of all thoughts of James and the fight and just focused in on this moment. Grayson pulls away leaving me breathless and speechless. He was slightly panting as we gather our thoughts.

“Age is just a number Y/N. I don’t care how old you are because to me you are my gorgeous 5’2, red curly haired, golden colored, luscious lips, brown eyed beauty.” Grayson says as he pulls me into a hug as he pushes me back on my bed and I break out in laughter. “I don’t fucking care if you’re 23. You’re everything I want. Everything I could possibly need. Why on earth would I let something as little as your age affect my opinion on you?” Grayson asks as he takes my hand in his. I didn’t have a proper response. The only thing I could think was shrugging which made Grayson laugh as he kissed me again. “Just to be on the safe side, James and you…” He trailed off, but I knew what he meant.

“No no I’m still very much single.” I smiled and so did Gray.

“We should change that sometime soon.” He smirked which I just rolled my eyes and laughed. We turned on Pretty Little Liars as Grayson grabbed my pink leopard print fleece blanket and he pulled it over us as I cuddled into Grayson as I rested my head on his chest and cuddled close to him. I soon fell asleep on his chest and I wouldn’ have wanted to fall asleep anywhere else. I truly did like Gray. I always did, but I felt like I was too old for him so I felt I was only ever his friend, but Grayson had other plans.

Jarno Sebastian Elg is a Finnish satanist, who was sentenced to life in prison for murdering an unamed 23-year-old man, eating some of the body parts and instigating others to participate in a ritual that included torturing the victim while listening to heavy-metal music on November 21, 1998 in Hyvinkää. Elg’s partners were 17-year-old Terhi Johanna Tervashonka, 20-year-old Mika Kristian Riska and a 16-year-old boy, who was not named.

The criminal investigation started when a leg was found from a dump site. The pieces were collected from a dump site, thus giving the name “dump site murder” to the case.

Elg was sentenced to life in prison. Tervashonka got eight years and six months in prison, because she was not an adult nor sane. Riska got two years and eight months in prison for assault and “violation of a grave”.

The 16-year-old boy was considered to be innocent, because he said that the older men forced him to participate, but the others were convicted. The court declared most of the details of the case secret.

Peruvian news have reported that a 23 year old man has taken his own life, and the suicide notes he left instructed to listen to the audio tapes, outlining why he made that decision. There’s no evidence that 13 Reasons Why played a role, but it’s likely. And that show got a second season.

anonymous asked:

do you not find Remus and Tonks's relationship a bit unbalanced and problematic? Considering their age, her being just starting her career, him being mostly unemployed?

Not at all. Though I should oust myself as being in one of those severe age gap relationships. He’s 14 years my senior. I like to tell him he’s an old man.

But enough on that.

Why would I consider that relationship either unbalanced or problematic? Remus and Tonks both fell in love with one another. It isn’t one-sided, and Tonks isn’t the only one to have been pestering Remus for those months and months about being too stubborn and martyring for his own sense of righteousness. So I don’t buy the popular manipulation idea, either.

As far as being emotionally or dynamically unbalanced, again, I disagree. Tonks was at the beginning of her career, sure, but even though Remus was mostly unemployed that wasn‘t his fault and was not an indication that he didn’t work. Remus mentions this as something on his mind when he says “too poor.” I don’t think for a second he would have let himself not work at least twice as hard as her, even if he didn’t get paid for all his work. furthermore, even if he didn’t “work”, as in a proper job or what have you, Remus could have been a stay-at-home dad with Teddy. Anyone who has ever raised a child or spent more than ten seconds with one is thinking, “Wow, these kids are a handful” at least every fourth thought. Tonks could have her day job as an Auror, and come home to Remus who would have busted his ass, weak from full moon or not, to take care of her, Teddy, the household, and every other thing that life throws at you because she gets 8 hours a day and “works so much harder than” him. Don’t undervalue the workload of a stay-at-home parent.

Or, really, the work of a partner who can’t work as much as the other. Like me. I work 17 hours to his 40. But I bust my ass to take care of the dog, the bills, the house, and then all of his wants and needs, on top of all the misc. things my own life throws at me like a pair of abusive parents and chronic illness. I may not get paid for most of the work I do, but I feel comfortable in that I know I do my part. Remus, similarly, would not have rest until he let himself do his part. He would never rest on someone’s coattails.

Now, as for problematic? I assume here you mean the age difference. Here comes the opinion some of you may not enjoy: if you’re a consenting and aware adult, which Tonks was, and your partner is also a consenting and aware adult, and both of you are mature enough to know and understand what you’re getting into, then it’s… okay. Now, I should be explicitly clear for a website full of 12 year olds pretending to be 17: of course there are legal issues if your SO is 18 and you’re 17. Of course there’s a huge, huge difference between a 16 year old and the 25 year old they’re eyeballing at the petrol station. But listen: Nymphadora Tonks was a mature, intelligent woman who was aprox. 23 when she and Remus began dating. And she knew what she was buying when she picked Remus off the shelf. She respected him as a person. She was old and mature enough to both be an auror and work for the government and Order, and to emotionally and intellectually grasp her feelings. Sure, she’s young. But she knew exactly what she’s doing, which is more than can be said for a 16, 17, 18-year-old. Can confirm, having been those very ages myself once, if you believe it.

And Remus was never interested in Tonks as the young, hot piece of meat, either. I know the popular trope is for older men to want to have these trophy boobs at their sides, but Remus even protests as “too old”, and never speaks of Tonks with anything but utmost respect. Tonks amused him first, with her personality. But Remus fell for her slowly, naturally. And Remus never mentioned wanting to use her, for her money, status, or body. He did not fall for her lightly. And he would have told her no if she was just in it because he was a hot teacher. He’s smarter than that, and also his internall walls needed a battering ram stronger than that to get the message across that she genuinely cared for him.

And to me, that’s all that matters with them: that they’re mature enough, consenting, and that they both love each other. So.. I guess I don’t agree, and hope that helps explain why.

so sometimes im w my famliy and someones like “oh yeah they listen to kpop” and im like “yeah the music i listen to isnt in english woopdeedoo aunt karen” and then someone in your family is like “YEAH SHE WANTS TO FUCK AN ASIAN” “YOU LIKE ASIANS RIGHT?” “LMAO U WANNA BE ASIAN”

like when i’m one who understands well enough the line of whats creepy and racist and then someone doesnt and they speak for you it’s so irritating. like dont say racist shit oN MY BEHALF. I KNOW MY GODDAMN BOUNDARIES AND PEOPLE SHOULDNT BE MADE TO FEEL LIKE OBJECTS JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT.

and like most importantly is that the poc around me do not deserve to hear that in the first place. and they dont deserve to be made to feel like objects or to be made uncomfortable or to live in a place where people say that shit. 

and then when my name is dragged into it, their list of people who see them as wierd fetishized objects just gets fucking longer and it shouldn’t be- no one should make anyone feel like that

and it pisses me off so bad because the last thing that we as a whole need is for those ideals to be spread around!!!

like the same asshats who think indian people aren’t asian are the ones saying “oh so you like asians? how about this one?” LIKE THEYRE OBJECTS.

and thye think that because i dont listen to music in english that im gonna agree with them???  thinking that i’m going to be like “oh yeah i love all the asian men please throw them at me”

like i am not afraid to ruin family dinners over this!!! i just wanna sit here and eat my dry white people turkey but i will correct you!! it’s not okay and you shouldn’t be this ignorant!! you are forty years old aunt patricia i shouldn’t have to explain this!! like its better that i listen to them than any poc bc they dont deserve that but to see the AUDACITY OF SOME PEOPLE is so frustrating BECAUSE THEYRE SO OLD ADN CRUSTY SOMEHOW EVEN WHEN THEYRE LIKE 23???

Hey Nurse

Pairing: Joe Liebgott/’Reader
Rating: Teen+
Author: GinaBaker1666
Summary: Easy Company’s field nurse meets her match when Joe Liebgott walks into the aid station, and she realizes there’s always one soldier who’s too sarcastic for their own good. But then again, so is she. 

Because @liebgotttrash wanted more Joe Liebgott fics. Enjoy!

If you asked me the exact date and time I met Joe Liebgott, chances are I couldn’t tell you. If you asked me where I met him; the aid station in Holland, D-Day plus 64. It was far from glamorous, and he was covered in dirt and blood. His own blood. But truthfully, it might be the only part of the war I don’t want to forget.

We knew all about Operation Market Garden, that the boys would be jumping into Holland, and we would be right behind them for support. What a lousy word to use; support. Ever since we made the jump on D-Day we had done so much more than just support, each of us, just as much a part of their company as the men.
