maddy is not wrong

Arin thought that if he didn’t kill this man his memory of his mother would fade. It already had, over time. Someday she would be as far away as a star.
But he couldn’t do it.
He had to do it.
Tell me what you did.
Arin dropped his sword, dropped to his knees, yanked the woven baldric from the fallen man’s shoulder, and used it to make a torniquet to save the person he hated most.

(…)

That night, alone in her tent, she thought about the cruel cold of the tundra. Sulfur crumbling in her grip. The panic when her memory had begun to slip. The nighttime drug: soft, dense. The fear of dying far from home. No one would have mourned her. Sorrow: like a marrow in the hollow of a bone. 
It had been real. It still was.
But it wasn’t the whole of who she was.
“You could do what the rest of us do.”
She would keep going.

FORGIVENESS, can you imagine?

“i’m now caught up on eight podcasts, woot woooot!  and seven of them…”

what podcasts?

naturally all of the night vale guys’ (both written and produced):

  • within the wires
  • alice isn’t dead
  • the orbiting human circus (of the air)
  • welcome to night vale

i feel like everyone knows how great those are, and if they don’t then they know to give them the benefit of the doubt because jeffrey cranor and joseph fink have earned at least that.  so i won’t blather on about how wonderful they are [coughs].  then i’ve caught up to these in the past month:

  • eos 10, i’ve just listened to the last episode today and, holy hell, it has to be up at the tippy top of favorites.  the humor in it is so freaking on point; laughing out loud in public for no apparent reason is always super fun, right?  if there’s a cooler girl than jane johns, well, that’s probably what she’s going to end up in prison for: eliminating the competition.  dr. urvidian and ryan dalias as rehabbing reluctant doctor friends in space is the best relationship ever conceived of and i defy you to prove otherwise.
  • the strange case of starship iris, this literally just started, the first episode dropping just the 10th of last month and i already want to give my whole heart to it (and violet liu).  real illuminae vibe to it that i like a loooot.
  • the bright sessions, HI, HEY, HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS BECAUSE I AM PRETTY GROTESQUELY OBSESSED WITH THIS.  if you weren’t aware of that: here ya go.
  • wolf 359 (my only non-gays of the bunch - though they’re not necessarily out of the running, there are no romantic subplots to this three seasons in - which i also enjoy the hell out of), this one deals with a ragtag group of uniquely brilliant misfits orbiting and observing a red dwarf star… that’s totally normal and stuff.

viktor on social media: posts selfies, travel pics, replies to his fans, career updates, uses his pics of his gold medals as reaction images, screams about his dog and husband constantly. yuuri on social media: posts once a year and it's usually just 'thanks for supporting me i promise not to suck next year', secret accounts specifically for stalking viktor, once responded to a thread about how fans wanted viktor to step on them with "same tbh" under his real name bc drunk yuuri has no chill

HALSKDJFLKAJFDLJKFSDA THAT LAST PART MADE ME CHOKE OMG

i love how people pick-and-choose who the producers in accurately represent

dance moms is fake. it’s set-up, staged, and heavily manipulated/edited; 

nevertheless, people still use it to point to certain so-and-so’s being a ‘bad person’ but when another person comes across as bad on the show, people are like, “well the show is fake! we can’t judge her on that because the producers a trying to make her look like that” but then why judge so-and-so!?!?!?! 

why is it that the producers apparently only try to assign false roles to what happens to be your fave? because the idea that some people are 100% accurately represented is bull.

in the eyes of the producers, no one is off limits. They are willing to make any girl look bad

just because so-and-so isn’t your favorite, that doesn’t mean they aren’t unfairly and inaccurately represented on the show.  you can’t just pick and choose who is.

* i’m not talking about abby or the moms (who all suck to varying degrees) 

one thing I really hate is when NT’s take our explanations as excuses. 

Teacher: why didn’t you bring your homework in?

Me: I forgot 

Teacher: that’s no excuse

I can’t count the number of times I had conversations like that, and mostly it just made me want to scream because, I know it’s not an excuse, you didn’t ask me for an excuse you asked me why I did something and I told you!

Honestly, “that’s no excuse” is probably the most useless response you can give an ND kid ever.

All you’re doing in this scenario is telling a child that their experiences are wrong. You’re asking them why they did something, and then telling them that they’re wrong. Worse than that, you’re telling them that their answer is unacceptable, which is shitty enough with NT kids.

But with ND kids these conversations usually revolve around something they can’t do, or find hard to do because of their neurodivergence so, in this context it adds to the way that society belittles and dismisses ND people. In this instance it tells them that their knowledge of themselves and their difficulties and limitations is wrong, that you know their brain better than they do and worst of all, that their difficulties are their fault because if they just tried harder, or stopped making excuses they’d be able to do it just fine!

TlDr; stop telling ND kids that their explanations are fucking excuses and start listening to them when they tell you about their difficulties so you can actually help them instead of teaching them that their perceptions are wrong.

Not Worth the Tears // Jack Maynard

Word Count- 1064

Request-

Hey!! Can I request an imagine? Can you do a Jack Maynard imagine where he and the reader go to a YouTube party and Jack’s ex is there and makes the readers night hell. Jack is also drunk as this is happening and the reader feels like they wanna give up on the relationship due to the one night?? Thanks xx

A/N- for anyone who doesn’t know Maddie is Caspar’s gf.

~~

You had been at the Gleam party for a total of 5 minutes before everything went to hell. You were sat at a table with the boys and Maddie. Caspar, Conor and Josh headed straight for the dance floor; Jack, Mikey and Joe decided the bar was the better option.

So there you were, sitting with Maddie talking about future vacations when you saw her. You weren’t surprised seeing as she was a YouTuber. But you couldn’t help but feel lesser around her.

She was the one who dumped Jack, meaning it took him forever to get over her. Part of you still felt like he hadn’t fully gotten over her.

But you pushed those thoughts down. You knew Jack loved you, you two had just celebrated your one year.

You had manage to go a whole 3 minutes before she noticed you. You knew she hated you, who wouldn’t hate their ex’s new partner. But most people didn’t go out of their way to make their exes new partner’s night hell, sadly, she did.

“Y/n?” Maddie put a hand on yours, concern written across her face. “What’s wrong?”

“Nothing,” you broke eye contact with her and gave Maddie a smile.

“Don’t do that. Don’t lie to me,” she had shut her phone off, attention fully on you.

“It’s just…” you sighed. “She’s here.”

“Who?” she asked.

“Jack’s ex.” You were looking at the ground. “She hates me.”

“Oh,” she gave you a soft smile. “Well, she needs to get over the fact that Jack chose you. Let’s go show her who she’s messing with.” With that, she stood and held out a hand.

You smiled, grabbing her hand. She led you two to the dance floor. Maddie quickly found Caspar and you danced with Joe and Josh. But you really wanted to dance with your boyfriend.

You began to look for him. You weaved your way through the dancing people towards the bar. But then she stopped in front of you.

“Hey Y/n! It’s so good to see you!” she smiled and lightly touched your arm, you jerked back knowing it was fueled by hate.

“Hi.” You said quietly, trying to get around her.

“Who ya looking for?” she asked, turning her head. “Cuz if you’re looking for Jack, I saw him a  few minutes ago… when he kissed me.” And with that she sauntered away like nothing happened.

You stomped over to your boyfriend and tapped him on the shoulder.

“Hey babyyyy.” He slurred, obviously drunk.

“Really?” you asked, taking the beer from his hand.

“Hey! That’s mine!” he reached for it but you handed it to Mikey, who quickly chugged it.

“You kissed her?” hurt evident in your voice, you wanted nothing more than to slap him right now.

“What?” he gave you a confused look? “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“Now you’re lying?” you scoffed. “Tell me why or I’m leaving. Without you.”

He put his hands up defensively, “Seriously calm down. You’re kind of being a bitch right now. Stop accusing me of shit I didn’t do.”

“Wow. I guess that’s how you truly feel. Goodbye Jack.” You turned around and left. You wanted so badly to go back and kiss him, but he clearly didn’t want to be with you. You sent a text to Josh saying you were going to spend the night at his house, and ordered an Uber.

Maybe Jack Maynard wasn’t worth your tears.

~~

It had been 2 days since you and Jack had fought. You made Josh promise to not tell Jack you were staying with him. He had nonstop texted, called, snapchatted you.

But you two needed a break, to think about what this relationship was really about.

Did he truly love you? Did you truly love him?

Yes. A thousand times yes. You loved him more than words could explain. But you weren’t going to give 100% if he wasn’t. You weren’t going to go in head first if he was only sticking a foot it. That’s not how relationships worked.

You were currently sitting in behind the camera as Josh filmed a Q&A. You would occasionally add a snarky comment or help explain a funny story.

Josh asked you to help, so there you were explaining the meaning behind an ugly picture of you on his phone, when the door bursts open.

Jack had looked rather upset, but when he noticed you he fell onto his knees.

“Y/n…” he said, tears falling down his cheeks.

You stood up and walked toward him while Josh stopped the camera then left the room.

“I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean it, any of it. I love you so much.” He cried, grabbing onto your waist. “Please forgive me.”

You put your hands in his hair as he sobbed into your shirt, “Jack.”

“Yeah?” he looked up at you, eyes full of hope.

“Why did you kiss her?” you had tears welling in your eyes.

“I didn’t! I swear I didn’t! She lied to you, I promise you. Just never listen to her, she’s not worth listening to. I would never hurt you,” he stood up, cupping your face.

“I’m sorry,” you said, eyes locked onto his.

“Don’t be, love.” He smiled, and brought his lips to yours. The kiss was perfect. Any kiss with Jack was, but this one was pure love. He dropped his hands to your waist, pulling you closer.

“I love you, Y/n.” he whispered against your lips.

“I love you too Jack.” You smiled, capturing his lips once again.

“Well now that that’s done, can we finish our video?” Josh asked, scratching the back of his neck.

“Sure,” you laughed, going back to the couch you were previously sat at.

“Thanks mate,” Jack said, clapping his hand Josh on his shoulder.

“Anytime bro. But seriously, leave. We’re busy.” Josh said, shoving jack towards the door.

Once Jack left and Josh sat back down you slapped him, “You told him?!?”

“Sorry, love, but he’s one of my best mates. Couldn’t not tell him where his girl was.” He shrugged, unlocking his phone.

“Thank you,” you hugged him.

He chuckled, “Anytime.”

You two finished your video and then you rushed home. You spent the rest of the night tangled in the sheets of your and Jacks shared bed, showing each other just how much you loved each other.

Mykayla….how did the Olympic staff “get it wrong?”

Assuming that this is shading Maddie, how exactly does Mykayla think that she could’ve outperformed Maddie? The team got gold without Mykayla, so she couldn’t have added anything there (meaning it’s not like they lost and could’ve won with her). Maddie got a silver on bars, that’s the best that Mykayla could’ve hoped to do on vault.

The salt levels of Mykayla Skinner are dangerously high

I’ve tried to recreate the escape from Wonderland just based on that mini scene of ‘Way Too Wonderland’ when the narrators tell us about the curse and the Evil Queen. I can’t imagine how hard it is to left behind friends, family, your only home…The Wonderland Kids have sad backstories…

Okay. La cosa es que no sabía la backstorie de Lizzie, Kitty, Maddie, etc. hasta que me leí los diarios de cada personaje y para ese entonces yo ya había sacado mi propia historia cuando fue el escape y también ya la había dibujado. Sé que ni se acerca al canon, pero igual está interesante pensar que las cosas sucedieron así :o
