love hate and then there's you

why be anti when you can love and respect everyone in your fandom equally?

Dear parents of autistic children,

No, your child doesn’t do weird things “for no reason”. They do it for a reason, you just don’t know it yet. You have different brains, different perspectives, so sometimes things that are obvious to them are a mystery to you. But you don’t have to ignore it and blame it on them. You can make an effort, reach out to them and figure out the reason.

Do they scream in public when it looks like everything is okay? Well, there’s probably a reason for that. Maybe the situation is overwhelming to their senses, it’s too loud, to bright, to crowded, and they need some space and time to recover. Maybe they can’t stim because other people keep telling them it looks weird, so they end up exhausted much faster. Maybe you are breaking their routine by being outside at this time. Or maybe you are going through the supermarket “the wrong way”, not how you usually do it. Maybe they forgot their comfort object at home, and just realized that. Maybe they are in pain and can’t communicate that. Maybe they are very hungry and don’t realize that yet because it’s hard for them to recognize their needs and emotions. Maybe it’s a combination of those, or something different altogether.

Either way, they probably don’t do it “for no reason”. You just don’t see the reason. Make an effort to communicate. If they are verbal, ask them. If they can’t speak with their mouth at the moment or ever, use alternative methods of communication. If they can’t explain it, consult other autistic people, including autistic adults who probably have a bunch of ideas as to why your child does that weird thing. Don’t dismiss it, don’t complain about it, don’t blame your child for doing it. Try to see the world from their perspective. Respect their needs and feelings. Learn more about autism from other autistic people.

And life will be much better and easier for both you and your child.

everybody lives AU | AKATSUKI
• setting — the Last

Akatsuki becomes a mercenary group for hire, as they did in Road to Ninja. 
This is more appropriately named the “everybody comes back to life and somehow things work out AU”… but as promised, 10 Akatsuki members in the timeline of The Last! Designing is fun (esp the village flak jackets) (・∀・)

See more extensive character/AU details below the cut!:

Keep reading

you know what’s great?

the fact that beast boy always goes above and beyond to make raven smile.

he is literally the only other Titan who cares so much about her happiness that he practically zones in on it and makes it his goddamn mission. 

he’s so good at reading her, he can tell when something’s off even when no one else does. it’s how he knew about malchior, and how he figured out her birthday before anyone else even noticed something was wrong. 

lgbt hiv+ people go through so much stigmitising shit every day and i just hope all of you know that you don’t deserve to be treated badly for your hiv status or for being lgbt. you deserve respect and love. full stop. 

no qualifiers like “only if you got hiv from something other than consensual sex” or “only if you’re white” or “only if you’re wealthy enough to pay for medication” or “only if you’ve never struggled with an addiction” or “only if you’re able-bodied”. you all deserve resources and you all deserve to be valued as human beings.

nothing is worse than making an effort to express genuine excitement for something for the first time in an extraordinarily long time, trying to share what made you excited with someone you trust, and have that someone blow you off

prompt set: i hate (love) you
  • the first time we met was in passing.  you’d been on crutches with bandages all over your face.  we’d not been allowed to talk to one another.
  • you’re half a head taller than me when we meet again and you don’t let me forget that.
  • we see each other more and more often.
  • i catch you hanging outside of the hallway of my room with that annoying smile.
  • our first mission together is in an abandoned part of town where you set me up as bait.
  • i meet you promptly in the training room for combat practice and then you’re late to the boss’ office for our assignment.
  • we’re covered in blood and end up in your apartment with bottles of expensive wine from my personal collection.
  • i hate you because i can’t even remember what happened that night.
  • all i remember is your lips grazing over mine.  your lithe fingers lingering over my waistband.  our legs tangled together.  whispered words.
  • you deny everything.
  • it becomes a routine.  we kill, get drunk, and forget what happened.
  • i’d never seen you so upset until i’d been pinned to the ground with the enemy’s knife across my throat.  he doesn’t even get a chance to beg for his life.
  • this time we remember.  fingers running through sweat soaked strands.  the moment we connect.  your soft caresses down my spine.  my legs around your waist.  desperate kisses.  promises.
  • you disappear from my life with just a phone call.
  • i run around the whole town because some asshole’s blown up my car and i can’t think straight enough to just borrow another car.
  • every place turns up empty.  the rain’s seeped through my coat.  i hope you’re behind every door.
  • i hate you because i can’t forget how much i love you.
  • others drink to forget but i drink to remember.

Isn’t it crazy how people actually take the time to hate on others’ ships?? Like grow up and get over yourself you conceited jerks. The world is bigger than your problems.

favorite Snape quotes....

There are some Snape quotes I really miss in the movies. I would have loved to see them performed by Alan….

“Hang on” Harry muttered to Ron “theres an empty chair at the staff table…wheres Snape?”

“Maybe he is ill” said Ron hopefully

Maybe he is left” said Harry………………..

“Or he might have been sacked” said Ron enthusiastically “I mean, everyone hates him-”

“Or maybe” said a very cold voice right behind them  “he is waiting to hear why you two didnt arrive on the school train”……………

There, his black robes rippling in a cold breeze, stood Severus Snape. 

I think besides his job to protect Harry, it was really worth to Snape missing the dinner to look for Harry and Ron to tell them off….he is not a bit surprised or really angry about their views. He is aware of that….even more he is working hard on it to remain in cover as the bad teacher in their eyes…..I think, Snape is enjoying himself in that szene pretty well….

Its not important to him to be liked….his life task is important. But sometimes he enjoys the small pleasures beeing a teacher.  :-D


the “what if the straights were oppressed” was a fine idea for a short film, but it kind of irritates me that it’s getting a full-length film about “forbidden straight love” when actual lgbtq representation in hollywood is barely above “absolute shit”

Psa

If you guys ship shaladin ships or whatever..
That’s fine! You’re not disgusting,gross or nasty for shipping what you love and what makes you happy!
Just do what you like and don’t listen to antis ! :)

Also to anti shaladins:
Stop harassing people because of their ships.they are not “problematic”,they are not harming anyone!
If you hate the ship so much then just block/blacklist the ship tag that makes you uncomfortable.theres no need to make 100 posts about how much you hate that ship or that the shippers that are horrible people : )
