look how close their hands are

anonymous asked:

I have a question about transgender body positivity. I'm a later transitioner and have several features (wide shoulders, thinning hair, large hands and feet) which are considered masculine. Celebrations of trans women generally don't include women who look like me, and instead center around trans women who most closely line up with conventional beauty standards. This reinforces the idea that I'm defective and "not good enough," which is distressing. How do I tell myself it's okay to be me?

For me this starts with doing the work that helps me to feel most comfortable in my own skin, that reminds me that I have worth and dignity. We can’t compare ourselves to anyone else – there is no right way to be trans, the only prerequisite for being trans is not identifying with the gender that you were assigned at birth. It is important that this knowing is bolstered by the support we get from being surrounded by a community of likeminded individuals who will lift you up and celebrate ALL of you. Having people who reflect and mirror us is so important.

I think you affirm your gender by participating in activities that make you feel the most you.  Whether it’s through clothing, or makeup, or relationships, or connecting to one’s self spiritually – it’s about affirming your gender in whatever ways feel best for you.

as long there's fighting going on, imagine Sherlock going up to John's room a couple days after the wedding and sees the ashtray he stole from Buckingham palace sitting there on the end table, a beautiful memory of the laughter they shared and how close they'd been and John had just left it behind when he moved out (because it was too painful to look at, but Sherlock doesn't know that), so he sits on the floor and stubs out cigarette after cigarette in it, trying to make it disappear #fightme

Are you sure he didn’t break it into pieces? Only to realize what he has done moments later. Then tries to pick up the broken glass and cuts his hand. Blood dropping in the glass. Broken glass inside, outside. Heartbreak..

hoshi + film camera

You had finally been able to buy your very own film camera, and you couldn’t have been more excited. In the time of digital photography and just snapping shots here and there, not really minding how they looked because you could easily take another photo, you found beauty in an old camera, where every frame should be thought about with care if you wanted to efficiently use the film.

Soonyoung held your camera curiously, turning it in his hands and looking out of the viewfinder over to the sea. He grinned and turned the camera to you while you had closed your eyes and lifted your face, taking in the scent of the beach as well as the wind around you. Hearing the shutter go off, you opened your eyes and turned to Soonyoung, who snickered and placed the camera down.

“Come on, don’t waste my film,” you said with a pout and took the camera from him, running your fingertips on the material of it. Soonyoung shook his head, still obviously amused.

“I wasn’t really wasting it,” he defended himself and gave you a peck on your cheek when you continued pouting.

When you got the film developed, there was one photo among all of them that stood out to you, obviously not taken by you. What was in it was you, with your hair flowing in the air, your eyes closed and the sun shining beautifully behind you while a serene smile rested on your lips.

With a smile you thought that perhaps Soonyoung hadn’t been wasting the film, after all.

BTS Comforting You (Bad Test Score)


Namjoon:
“Jagiya I’m home,”Namjoon said happily as he closed the front door. “Hi,”you said weakly as he went to him and hugged him. “What wrong? Oh wait you took your exam today!”he said as he looked at you smiling but then realized how upset you looked. “I think I seriously failed that test,”you said as he covered your face with your hands. “Don’t say that. You did just fine because I was your tutor so you obviously passed the test with flying colors,”he said with a cocky look on his face.

Taehyung: “Why do you look so down?”Taehyung asked you as he gave you side hug. “You know the exam I told you about?”you asked him. “Oh yea the one that you spent the whole night studying for,”he nodded as he looked at you confused. “Well everything that was on the test wasn’t what I was studying about. I didn’t know more than 80% of the test,”you said as you leaned your head on his shoulder. “Whenever you think you failed you always get an A so don’t worry to much on it. Let’s go get some ice cream,”he said smiling at you reaching out his offering you his hand.

Hoseok: You were pacing back and forward around the apartment when Hoseok came home. You looked at your phone and quickly went to your laptop and refreshed the page. “Hi jagiya,”Hoseok said wrapping his arms around your waist. You nodded in response as you looked through the list of ID numbers but none of which had grades on it. You sighed in frustration as you tapped your finger as you refreshed the page once more. “Test results?”he asked as he stepped away. “Yea,”you said as you looked at him sadly,”If I don’t pass I have to start all over.” “Come over here,”Hoseok said motioning you to the couch. You sat next to him as you started to tap your foot quickly. He put his hand on your knee,”(Y/N) it’ll be alright stop stressing over it. You can also retake the test over the summer. Come on lets go take a nap. The test results will be there when you wake up.”

Jin: When you arrived to the apartment Jin was in the living room reading a book and when he saw he went to you quickly to hug you. “It was easy wasn’t it?”he said with a really big smile. “Far from it. If anything I failed the test. Now how am I going to get into the college I want?”you said frowning as you hugged Jin tightly. “Don’t think of the negative. You can reapply for the next semester so that way you can take the test again,”he said as he rubbed small circles on your lower back. “You’re right I just really wanted to go straight away to college but maybe it’s for the better,”you said as you laid in Jin’s arms.

Jungkook: “Hey (Y/N) what’d you think of the exam? It was easy right?”Jungkook said smiling,”I was stressing over nothing.” “What are talking about! It was the most difficult exam ever,”you said staring at him disbelief,”I wouldn’t be surprised if I failed.” He laughed causing you to get angry,”Why do I even bother with you.” “I’m sorry (Y/N) you must be joking right? You always get the highest scores at school. You probably just missed one question that’s why you’re freaking out,”he said smiling at you kindly,”Tell you what if you do by some magical force fail this exam I’ll buy all the buckets of ice cream you want but if you do pass you’ll accept to go on a date with me.” You rolled your eyes,”I hope you get paid soon because you’re going to be spending a lot of money on ice cream.”

Yoongi: “Are the scores posted yet?”Yoongi asked as he was typing new lyrics half paying attention to your dilemma. “I told you I’ve been checking every two seconds but nothing is popping up. What if I did so bad that the professor doesn’t even want to post it,”you said with wide eyes as you start to panic even more. “Maybe they blocked you off the site because you’re refreshing it to many times. Come here I need you to listen to this,”he said as he took off his earphones. “Yoongi-ah I can’t even think straight how do you think I can judge your music right now,”you said but went over to him anyways. “Shut up and listen to the song. Once it’s over you can refresh the page don’t think about what score you got just let the melody consume you,”he said as he took your phone and started playing the song.

Jimin: “Wait did you already get your results?”Jimin asked you worried. “No I haven’t gotten the scores but almost everyone that I know already has. I have a bad feeling about this. Plus some say if you don’t receive anything it means you total failed the test,”you said as you paced back and forward. “Let’s not jump to conclusions,”Jimin said stopping you. “What do you think? Be completely honest,”you said as you begin to panic even more. “I know you passed the test. There’s no use in panicking about something that you know deep inside that you passed. Namjoon tutored you so that’s another reason why I know you didn’t failed the test,”he said smirking. “So you’re saying that without Namjoon’s help I could’ve failed the test?”you asked raising an eyebrow. He smiled as he saw you becoming distracted about the results,”It’s possible.”

Bad Dreams [a Barry Allen imagine]

Request: Tyler wakes Barry up, reader is currently pregnant with Joey, and Tyler says that he had a bad dream about not being strong enough to protect his brother and Barry just comforts him and tells him stories about the times he saved reader and how he pulled through and just fluff

a/n: omg this is so cute i cannot bless daddy!barry i need more


Check out my family chart; request, come up with lil blurbs :)


You look over at Barry, smiling as he flips a page. His glasses set at the end of his upturned nose, glow of the bedside light shadowing his messy chestnut hair. After a few seconds of staring, his green eyes shift towards you. “What?” he grins, closing the book on his index finger and setting it in between his legs.

“Nothing… you’re just so handsome.” you sigh, resting your hand on his bare chest. He blushes, pale freckled cheeks turning a lovely shade of pink, and leans down to kiss you. His hand cups your tiny bump of a stomach, lips puckering around yours, drawing you in closer. A knock interrupts the sweet kiss and you pull back. “Ty?” you ask, eyebrows furrowing together.

The door slowly pushes open, revealing the lanky eleven year old boy in a pair of bright red basketball shorts and a tank top. He sniffles, scratching behind his ear, moving his light brown bangs in the process. “Bud, shouldn’t you be in bed?” Barry questions, removing his thick rimmed glasses to rub his eyes. “It’s like 12:30, man.” he grumbles, yawning slightly.

Tyler bites his lower lip, tentatively stepping into the bedroom, toes curling in the carpet. When he draws closer, you notice tears in his sea colored eyes and frown. “I…I had a bad dream, dad.” he admits quietly, nose scrunching underneath his glasses. “I didn’t wanna be alone.” he pulls on the end of his baggy white tank top, eyes focused on the ground.

Barry peers at you, lips parted and you sigh, fixing yourself on the bed to make some room. The speedster yanks the comforter off his legs, scooting over and adjusting his navy boxers. “Come here, slugger.” he pats the mattress; Tyler climbs on the bed, almost falling over on his knobby knees. Barry gasps when the eleven year old lays on top of his chest, still sniffling. Pouting, he gazes at you. “Aw, Ty, do you wanna talk about it? That helps, yanno; talking…” he coos, rubbing his son’s shoulder.

Feeling your fingers card through his medium length brown hair, Tyler sighs into his dad’s strong chest. “It was about the new baby.” he says softly. Barry frowns, shooting you a concerned expression. “I… I couldn’t protect them, dad… They were screaming and I…” he cries, fingers curling on Barry’s chest.

“Hey, hey, hey.” the speedster rushes out, picking up his son’s  head from his chest. His lips make a little popping noise when he sees the tears. “I understand what you mean. I had those same dreams when I started dating mom.” he whispers, brushing back Tyler’s bed hair. “I’d wake up in the middle of the night, screaming.” You nod, muttering ‘he did’. “I always thought I would be too late, yanno?” he shrugs, scrunching his nose. “But I always saved her, didn’t I?” Tyler sucks in a breath, nodding. “Don’t worry about your little brother, okay? He’s not gonna be in any trouble that you need to worry about, alright, bud?” Barry comforts, drying his son’s cheeks.

Tyler sniffles, crinkling his brown eyebrows, bright cloudy blue eyes staring at his dad. “Wait, little brother? I’m gonna have a little brother?!” he presses, voice laced in excitement. One thought goes through Barry’s mind, shit; he smiles at you awkwardly. “It’s a boy?!” Tyler turns to you, knees digging into Barry’s thigh, making him let out a painful groan.

Grinning, you take your son’s hand, guiding it to your light blue tank top. “Ty, meet Joey.”

Like everyone else, I just died watching Dad Kane!!! The way he caressed Bellamy's face and how Bellamy even leaned into his hand. MY HEART. and how Kane looked to Bellamy immediately both when Clarke cried over Lexa and when Echo/Roan delivered the news about Octavia. I LOVE their relationship. I also loved when Kane actually scolded Octavia and told her to SIT DOWN. It was so needed. AHHHHH

I want more earth dad Kane. I love him. Gather your children close, Marcus. They need you.

When my 60 pound dog and I get SO excited to see each other (not just when I come home, also just randomly when we’ve been home together all day) there’s so much love. I use my puppy voice and speak Spanish because that’s the language he knew when I adopted him. I say “ven acá” & “beso” to him while he walks in circles around me wiggling his whole body, and his eyes are so squinty they look like they’re closed. When I say “ven acá” I point repeatedly to the ground in front of me and he wiggles over and puts his paw on my hand. He makes little deep woo noises at me and after 5 or 6 times around me he will sit right on my lap. If I start scratching his face he will face plant into my lap and summer salt off me. I had to put this somewhere because sometimes I forget how lucky I am to have had him for the past 6 years.

 I’ve seen a few posts around saying that Andy was problematic or that the episode would have worked just fine without him. The thing to remember is that the crewniverse creates this show to be relatable not only in ways that have us singing from the mountain tops, but also in ways that are a little harder for us to face. Maybe in ways that make us uncomfortable, but are very much issues that we need to address as well. 

How many people were reminded of their own closed minded family members while watching Andy? My literal thoughts were ‘oh look, it’s my dad in an SU ep!’, before wanting to sink away from second hand embarrassment for the comments he made. Because man, have I been there before. 

Because who hasn’t had their sort of uncle freak out over the illegal hippy martian immigrant farmers your dad said could live in his barn? 

No but really. Especially that part about hearing about this on AM radio? Yeah, at least one writer has come up close and personal with this type of specimen. It may seem that given the timing of certain current events, the last thing anyone wants to see on SU is one of THOSE types. 

But here’s the thing: they exist. You can hide your head under a rock all you want, but they’re still there. So what do we do? We actually get two points of view on this. One: the gems as literal aliens. On a good day they really don’t understand even the most open minded of humans. So here they are running smack into one that’s mad about a world that’s changing even without the interference of the gems. And he’s upset that they’re not acting in the “traditional” roles he’s use to seeing human women in. Never mind that they’re not human, or technically speaking, women. They’re there in his barn, messing with his things, and really there’s no way this can end well. 

Until you bring in the nephew he never knew he had. Who just so happens to be very, very interested in learning about his human family.And who just wants everyone to get along. Because let’s face it, that’s Steven’s MO. He’s so focused on finding out that his family name is ‘Demayo’ that Andy’s comment to Greg ‘not even marrying an American’ floats right by him. But it was very much meant for the audience to hear. 

Not that any of that matters to Steven, he’s already planning the most awkward family reunion in the galaxy. 

And the Gems, bless their hearts, are eager to make Steven happy.

And honestly, for all his misgivings, so is Andy.

To a point anyway. Until he realizes that maybe, just maybe things are changing. That change is coming whether he likes it or not. And that change can never, ever be one sided. 

And at the first Thanksgiving, the gems and the humans gave thanks for polyamorous wedding cake, corn, this table, and traumatizing life events.

The thing about change is that it’s never simple. It never happens over night. Both sides are scared or angry, or very probably both. They’re also sure that their side is the right side. 

And even when it seems like everything is going right, you’re trying so hard include everyone in your new vision and it seems like you’re really getting through to them, they just… slip away. Because change is scary. Because they’re going through the motions without really understanding why. Because sometimes it’s easier to go along with things even if they don’t agree, even if their heart isn’t in it. So again, what do you do?

You listen. You hear their fears. You let them come to their own conclusions that maybe, just maybe, things HAVE to change. 

But that doesn’t mean being left behind. 

Now for reality: It’s never as simple as this. Bigotry isn’t faced and solved in 20 minutes. No one is saying it is. Sometimes it’s safer not to face it, and sometimes you just can’t. 

But I think overall its meant to be a message of hope- just like the overall message of Steven Universe is a positive one. People have opposing points of view. Talk. Listen. See that in the end you have more in common than you ever thought possible and go from there. Also: family is what you make of it. Even if it’s a dad, an estranged uncle, an alien hybrid child and his hippy illegal martian immigrant aunts. It can work, as long as you work together.

You don’t want to fall in love.
You don’t want to touch the curves of their body and remember every part.
You don’t want to tangle your hands through their hair.
You don’t want to kiss them like it’s the only thing you live for.
You don’t want to hold them close hearing their heart beat against your chest.
You don’t want to memorise the sound of their laugh as if your mind recorded it.
You don’t want to know how their hands feel delicately intertwined with yours.
You don’t want to see them unhappy.
You don’t want to feel them drift apart.
You don’t want them to tell you they must leave.
You don’t want to see them go.
And not look back.
Because it kills.
And you don’t want to die.

SO WE KNOW THIS HAS TO BE VICTOR’S PHONE, DUE TO THE BACKGROUND AND MACCHACHIN’S ALBUM PHOTOS AT THE END.

And Victor knows enough english to have his phone settings in that specific language, remember how in episode 10 he had it in Japanese? Well I’m sure he changes it once in a while just to be able to get used to the different languages he currently knows or is trying to practice. But why is this important?

WELL BECAUSE IT MEANS ALL THESE FIRST PHOTOS, WERE TAKEN BY NO OTHER THAN VICTOR HIMSELF. YUURI IS POSING JUST FOR THE RUSSIAN MAN. And the thing is, Yuuri’s looking directly to the camera in the first picture, and you can actually see how the person behind the phone (Victor) is trying to focus the image because god the other boy is pretty close. Just imagine Victor when he took the first one… Yuuri’s fingers are really close to one side of the camera, as if he’s trying to get the phone from Victor’s hands…

…so did the russian dork just tried to approach him, seeing as Yuuri was already dead-drunk, he might have thought it had no point asking, he just wanted something that’ll help him remember this gorgeous/crazy boy, but the moment he was ready to take the first photo, Yuuri noticed and it all began from there. Either way we know Yuuri just followed along, which of course lead to the rest of the photos in Victor’s phone.

And see this?! Yuuri is literally posing for the other man. Before the pole dancing and the dance-off with Yurio, everything started with just Victor and Yuuri, taking these goofy photos while everyone is just staring. What is Yuuri even trying to do… I have no idea, but I’m sure Victor loved it.

Oh! Victor Nikiforov wants a commemorative photo?”

The boy is just dancing as he drinks, to what we could assume is maybe a classy song played for the banquet guests, and all this just for Victor. He has the man in front of him, and we don’t know…

…maybe he is trying to mimic some of Victor’s past routines?! Even if that’s not the case and he’s just dancing for the sake of the booze in his head… We do know that this boy is trying to impress his childhood idol by dancing his heart out in front of the other’s camera.

JUST LOOK AT HIM, HE’S SO DRUNK, AND OH SO HAPPY, AND NOW WE KNOW WHO HE’S LOOKING AT WHEN THESE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN.

I can’t even begin to imagine Victor’s delight. I’m sure this was a first for him, he must have been thinking how true it is when they say you only live once, and more so when it comes to things related to Katsuki Yuuri.

Yesterday I woke up after a night of tears, and saw dozens of emails and donations in support of my work with LGBTQIA youth. 

Yesterday I wore my Nasty Woman t-shirt to the coffeeshop, and a black man came up to me to tell me he wanted to get one for himself and his son. I told him I would always fight for him.

Yesterday my mom called me in tears. She said she felt alone. She said she loved me. She told me I used to watch The Smurfs as a little kid, and I would look at her and say, “Look, mom, they are all holding hands. That is how you know they are gonna win.”

Yesterday I went to therapy.

Yesterday I blocked family members on social media.

Yesterday I cried. I held my wife, Jenny, close. I cried more.

Yesterday I did a livestream to create space for others in our community who were scared. We talked. We shared resources. Jenny sang The Rainbow Connection.

Yesterday I worked and I worked and I worked and I worked.

Yesterday I recorded a voice memo in an attempt to comfort a six-year-old who had woken up crying, and who asked his two moms how we could let a bad man be our president.

Yesterday I recognized and acknowledged my privilege as a white, cisgender woman.

Yesterday I feared for my brown, black, disabled, immigrant, undocumented, and Muslim friends. My trans friends. My friends who are survivors of sexual assault. My friends.

Yesterday was November 9, 2016.

Today I will fight. Tomorrow I will fight. 

I will never, ever stop fighting.

“I love you.” she said. “I love you that it was the hardest for me to let you walk away so easily. I don’t want to see your back against me and I can’t pretend that it’s alright with me. To hear you said the words which sound like my worst nightmare and seems to threaten my world. I don’t want to listen as those will crush every part of my being to pieces. Words are never enough to describe how much it hurts. I love you, that even if it will take time for me to accept the truth, I will still do the thing that’ll make you happy. Just like what I’ve promised from the very start.” she breathed so hard and stared at his eyes. She looked at her world as she cried silently. She touched his cheek with her hand and put her forehead on his. She closed her eyes and for a moment, all of their precious memories came crashing back. And like diamonds, she buried them deep down and hope that no one will see it except for her. As she opened her eyes, she said the last words she thought she will never say, “I am letting you go. Yet I will never say goodbye. Because I still believe that, someday, we will meet again. And I hope, that maybe then, you’ll be happier. Maybe then, I’ve moved on. Maybe then, my heart is whole again.” With that, she took a step back and turned her back on him. She started walking away and looked at the only star in the sky. She smiled, and as her tears kept on falling down, she whispered, “I love you.” Again and again until her eyes got tired of crying.

Mari, living it up in Barcelona

(A companion to this post.)

It’s actually kind of hilarious thinking about Mari joining Minako in Barcelona.

Think about it for a bit - Minako knows these skaters by reputation. She follows skating close enough that she livestreams it late at night, she knows their names and some tidbits of info, knows some of the skating styles (Chris and his sex appeal), carries flags to events, recognizes how Yuuri looks on the ice when nervous, and recognizes changes in his program (like with his 4F).

Then you have Mari who, besides offering Yuuri steady support and attending the public viewings, is basically a new figure-skating fan. She is the representation of the newbie fan who found a single skater to fawn over (Yurio) and falls deep into the sport. 

She makes uchiwa(circular hand fans) and posters and maybe doesn’t know as much about the sport as seasoned fans, but she will cheer just as loud

(She’s probably following Yuri’s Angels on Instagram and Twitter, but don’t tell her brother that!) 

So she goes with Minako to Barcelona, to cheer on her little brother Yuuri, and her favorite Russian Fairy Yurio. Prior to leaving Hasetsu, she probably got a crash course by Minako so she can have some idea on who the other 4 skaters are, and now she suddenly finds herself surrounded by them (including her beloved Yurio) during dinner.

Both Minako and Mari are so interested in Yuuri’s embarrassing banquet dance battles, 

and don’t really blink when finding out that Yuuri and Victor are essentially engaged (“like, duh, of course they’re going to get together, have you SEEN them in Hasetsu?”). 

I imagine that she recognizes Phichit because he’s Yuuri’s friend who always posts pictures of Yuuri on Instagram.

I’ll bet she counted on him for updates over the years, because Yuuri canonically never updates his account ( “what’s the point in having one if you don’t use it, Yuuri?!”), apparently never sends emails (on that gmail account in ep4 he only has 3 emails to his family in the past year), and he probably doesn’t call home all too often because of the 13/14 hour time-zone difference ( “I don’t care if you call me at 3 in the morning, baby brother, I just want to hear if you’re safe and not dying of pneumonia or something.”). 
Phichit seems so supportive and basically called out to a bunch of strangers to embarrass her brother by cheering for his marriage. She approves.


Mari’s spent the day sightseeing, eating dinner with the top Men’s figure skaters, laughing at pictures of Yuuri’s drunken dance battles, and seeing her brother get engaged (and glared at by said skaters). The next day she’s in the hustle-and-bustle absorbing the atmosphere of a large competition. Just look at Mari, at her first Grand Prix Final:

She’s having the time of her life.

  • and you just shake your head and say yes, you do want to marry him
  • and the boys are in the background smiling, and sweating after all of the choreo they did
  • seriously. they’d been practicing for weeks.
  • (they said john even yelled at them once because he wanted it to be perfect)

lafayette

  • if there’s. ANYONE who is going to ask you to marry him in a restaurant
  • it’s lafayette.
  • he takes you out to a really fancy dinner
  • and you both dress up really nice
  • and you get what you swear to god is the nicest food you’ve ever eaten
  • and you laugh and smile and talk throughout dinner
  • but he seems… somewhat…. nervous and awkward
  • and he’s normally this smooth talking guy
  • and its… very suspicious
  • and its even MORE suspicious when he says he forgot his wallet and that you have to pay
  • and you’re like “…. alright???? …. i geuss?????”
  • he apologizes a lot, more than he ever has before
  • and when the bill comes in the lil wallet holder folder thing made of leather
  • and you start rummaging through your wallet for the money
  • he looks very panicked that you actually are going to pay
  • and he’s like “no no y/n please look in the folder thing please”
  • and you open it and tHERES A RING SITTING THERE ON TOP OF THE BILL
  • and he snatches it before you can do anything and proposes in front of everyone!!!
  • (you see a few waitresses cry)
  • (he repeats over and over that he doesn’t actually want you to pay)
  • (kiss him. he deserves it. he was so scared.)

hercules

  • you are completely alone when he proposes.
  • he just… does it in your living room?
  • he steps out of the bedroom and he has a shirt in his hands
  • and he’s quietly like “y/n i made this for you can you try it on?”
  • and you take it and somehow wrestle it onto your body
  • you don’t even know whats on it. you just look at him and tell him it fits
  • and he’s like “go look in the mirror and tell me if you like it”
  • and when you go to the bathroom and look in the mirror it says “will you marry me?” in big sparkly pink font
  • when you go back out hes wearing… a MATCHING SHIRT…
  • and he’s already down on one knee and you approach him
  • and he hits you with the pick up line he said when you first met
  • and you BURST into laughter
  • once you’ve calmed down he’s like “in all seriousness y/n… will you marry me?”
  • and when you say yes, he j u mp s up and tackles you onto the couch
  • (like it actually slightly hurt a little bit) 
  • and he’s very apologetic
  • and to make it up to you he starts kissing you everywhere he can reach
  • (he made the shirt very revealing… for a reason)

angelica

  • its going to be big.
  • its going to be very big because she has to live up to her own high standards that she and everyone else has set for herself
  • so she takes you to a really busy tourist destination
  • that you’ve probably been to a million times
  • and you’re like “ok nice can we go now angelica”
  • and she’s like hang on… i’m waiting for something
  • and when you’re probably starting to get really annoyed because you’ve been there for the longest time
  • music starts playing that wasn’t playing before
  • and its your favourite love song
  • (whatever genre, whatever artist, your favourite song is playing)
  • and you’re like wow angelica this is really funny huh? its my favourite song
  • and she gulps, really loudly, and takes you by the hands
  • and sits you down in a chair in the MIDDLE OF THE BUSY PART OF THE TOURIST DESTINATION THAT WASN’T THERE BEFORE
  • and peggy and eliza emerge from the crowd
  • and, for you, they sing the rest of your favourite love song with beautiful harmony and really cute and simple dance moves
  • and by the end everyone around you is clapping and you’re clapping but still you’re…. probably confused because… why did she serenade you in public
  • and angelica gets down on one knee
  • and she asks you to marry her in the most simple phrase
  • just straight up. “Will you marry me”
  • you stand up and nod
  • and when you say yes everyone EXPLODES
  • and everyone is cheering and clapping and she kisses you and you’re both laughing
  • (”was it good y/n” “yes angelica” “are you sure cuz if it wasn’t good then i can redo it” “angelica it was great” “are you satisfied” “ye s”)

eliza

  • the two of you are out for coffee and you both are having a good time
  • laughing and typing away at your laptops or doing work
  • and eliza excuses herself to go to the bathroom
  • and so you’re texting on your phone waiting for her to come back
  • when one of the baristas calls your name even though you didnt order another drink
  • but you go over and retrieve the cup that is apparently yours
  • and try to take a sip from it because like… free drink hell yeah
  • but theres…. nothing inside but this little hollow noise???
  • so with an eyebrow raised, you take off the lid, and there’s this… beautiful ring at the very bottom.
  • like, it probably shouldn’t be there because if someone got the wrong cup, they would not return it
  • you know the ring is for you and that it’s from eliza but you… can’t see her? 
  • even the barista seems confused?
  • and then she shyly emerges from the bathroom and is like “DO YOU LIKE IT Y/N” across the entire cafe
  • and you’re like… “yes eliza i love it”
  • and so she runs on over and takes the cup from your hands and pulls the ring out
  • and she doesnt get down on one knee but she does help you sit up on the counter top
  • and she’s like “you know what i love? you”
  • and then she proposes. and she’s blushy and really flushed and has the goofiest, sweetest smile suspended on her face and she talks about how helpless you make her feel 
  • and when you say yes, she does this lil dance and picks you up by the waist and spins you around
  • and then she realizes she can’t carry you because she is smol!!! so you climb down
  • and she slips the ring onto your finger and kisses you and she tastes like hot chocolate
  • and its… amazing

thomas

  • he just got back from a really long business trip
  • and hes been away for weeks
  • and when you go to pick him up at the airport
  • hes sweaty, and his hair is kind of flat, and he looks more exhausted than you’ve ever seen him
  • but he still looks so happy to see you
  • and when you guys are hugging, he whispers “what’d i miss” into your ear
  • (which is an ongoing joke between the two of you)
  • and you whisper “you missed me” in return
  • and you feel his smirk grow against your cheek
  • but when you finally pull away after about ten years of hugging
  • hes not smiling and he says, very seriously, “i never want to have to miss you that much ever again”
  • and he gets down on one knee and opens a small pocket of his suitcase
  • and pulls out a ring.
  • and he says this big long speech about how much he loves you
  • and how much he missed you
  • and every little thing about you he loves
  • (and backs it up with evidence)
  • eventually, he’s almost fallen asleep when he says, “will you marry me?”
  • and you get down so you’re level with him and you say “yes, thomas, i’ll marry you. now let’s go home”
  • (when he wakes up the next morning he double-checks to make sure you said yes)
  • (you say yes, you did say yes. “did you miss that thomas?”)

madison

  • lets face it.
  • this man probably wouldn’t go out of his way to propose
  • he loves you, of course, but you know that
  • and he knows that very much
  • and he doesnt feel the need to prove it to you with some big declaration?
  • (”i bet hamilton would do something lame like serenade you or read a poem, pssh”)
  • so you’re most likely in your bed just cuddling
  • and when you begin to pull away to get water or get changed, he looks over and just goes
  • “marry me?”
  • and you fall back into bed and tell him that you’d love to.
  • (he doesnt have the ring yet)
  • (he promises he will take you shopping when he’s not working)
  • (he works a lot)
  • (it will take a very long time to get your ring)
  • (he also doesnt want to go out when hes sick cuz he doesnt wanna cough all over really expensive rings)
  • (he apologizes profusely)
  • (tell him you love him anyway)
  • (and kiss him)

aaron

  • he is very shy
  • and has been carrying around the ring for months.
  • literally. months.
  • (he’s afraid you’re going to say no)
  • (like, very afraid you’re going to say no)
  • (he doesn’t put himself out like this a lot)
  • and hes also been waiting for the perfect moment!!
  • so one day you’re in a bookstore you both like
  • and amidst the stacks of books and paper
  • he gets down one on knee and is biting his lip because hes so nervous…
  • but he does it anyway!!! because he loves you!!! and really wants to marry you!!!
  • he wants it more than anything in his life!!!
  • he has a really!!! really cute and cliche speech about how much he loves you
  • talks about how beautiful you are every ten words
  • explains to you that you are the best thing in his life and never wants to lose you!!! but stutters his way through it
  • wants to put the ring on your finger while hes kneeling and… kisses your ring finger oh gosh…
  • he may… stay on the ground……. ???
  • (he wants you to either meet him on the ground or pull him up)
  • (pull him up by the collar and kiss him. he will smile so wide after)
  • (he might ask you later if it was romantic enough. tell him yes.)
