makes the whole world go round

letters to a friend
  • aries: i'm sorry that we fought during our last year together. i miss you so much, and will always cherish our drunk days together.
  • taurus: god, you are absolutely gorgeous. your voice makes me melt. why do you always fight, even if you know you are wrong?
  • gemini: why do you keep me at arms length? why don't you let yourself really, fully connect with anyone? i understand adaptation, but sometimes it really is too much.
  • cancer: do you understand that i am not trying to hurt you? please stop fighting me when i try to see past your protective shell. i simply want to care for you.
  • leo: you even look like the sun; you radiate like nothing else. i know you love with every fiber of your being, but that is no reason to let someone take advantage of you.
  • virgo: sometimes criticism is good, but don't you think you push it? please do not try to fix me; i am not broken. i miss you.
  • libra: you push away people that actually care about you, and for what? for a sign that represents a scale, you really do not understand balance. let yourself be cared for.
  • scorpio: you do not let anyone really understand your mind and heart as a whole, and shatter yourself like glass to protect who you are. don't you think this is counterproductive? please try to keep yourself whole.
  • sagittarius: i understand the pursuit of knowledge, but sometimes you take the way you feel as a fact. you know that not everything you say is based upon factual evidence, and somehow you convince everyone that your way is the right way. why don't you try letting someone else convince you for a change?
  • capricorn: you do not let your emotions influence anything you do, which is admirable, but sometimes you need to listen to them. the world is made up of facts, but feelings make the world go 'round.
  • aquarius: why do you treat your lovers like friends? you are afraid of losing your individuality in another person, and detach yourself instead. please let yourself love.
  • pisces: you see the face of everyone who has ever hurt you on someone who really actually cares for you. i understand a victim complex, but you're not just hurting yourself by thinking this way.

anonymous asked:

can u plz give me some nesta/rhys brotp headcanons?? like them teaming up on the inner circle during cards and winning every single time? or cassian and feyre giving each other confused looks every time they laugh about their inside jokes? or how the cassian/feyre brotp and the rhys/nesta brotp are always super competitive? like pictionary and charades?? or how rhys and nesta are super cultured and love to talk about their favorite plays/musicals they see? PLZ I NEED MORE OF THIS BROTP

YES FRIEND. WE ALL NEED MORE OF THIS BROTP I ADORE IT. I think there’s this idea that Nesta hates Rhys and I’m like…my dudes. ACOMAF happened. There was character development. It was beautiful. Please take note of it and the ‘that was why you painted stars on your drawer’ moment. 

Also I just feel like Nesta and Rhys are….Actually quite similar?? I think there’s a kind of…cool pragmatism in both of them (see: ‘I’m going to starve myself and my sisters to see if my father will actually get off his ass and do something’ and Rhys’s…entire UtM persona) And they’re both quite…regal for want of a better word, they both have powerful mental capacities (Rhys’ daemati magic and Nesta’s ability to resist glamours) they’re both quite cerebral in general too. For all that we get talk of Rhys’ power most of his planning revolves around schemes, cunning, manipulation, stealth that sort of thing, it’s never about brute force, Nesta thinks similarly. It’s calculated and careful and listen what I am driving at here is Nesta and Rhys sitting up late sharing some spiced wine and talking battle tactics/war strategies I’M DOWN FOR THIS.  

right, okay, headcanons now that piece of…unnecessary mini meta is over: 

Yes to them teaming up against the others at cards. Like there’s that part of ACOMAF where Rhys gets all huffy because Cassian and Azriel tag-teamed him when they were playing cards? So he invites Nesta to the next game and they…wipe the board with them and Cass and Az are like….okay so we’re screwed and Nesta is very smirky and pleased with herself. 

DEFINITELY YES TO THE INSIDE JOKES THAT BAFFLE FEYRE AND CASS THIS IS ADORABLE. and it is 100% guaranteed to be some completely nerdy joke about history that even Amren doesn’t get (and she was there) But I will get to the history nerds thing in a minute. 

Nesta and Rhys teaming up against Cass and Feyre would be…Amazing. And like, Nesta and Rhys are ruthlessly competitive and Feyre and Cass are too but while Feyre is ruthlessly competitive Cassian is just like…determined competitive. And basically the big golden hearted bat gets surrounded by all of these vicious bastards who just want to win and will do anything to achieve that and he’s like !?!?! no pls calm down let’s enjoy the snacks I brought okay? He and Feyre do work very,very well together and hot damn is that girl determined and scrappy but most of the time they’re no match for Nesta and Rhys who will just….destroy you then elegantly sip wine over the dust that was once your corpse. 

CHeSs GAmES Rhys being a broody and dramatic bat with the weight of the world on his shoulders and Nesta knows it. Mor and Cass have both tried teasing him and coaxing him into letting go with them and Az has tried quietly talking to him and Feyre has tried too but she knows to just leave him be for a little while but Nesta…is having none of that broody bullshit. She settles herself down opposite him and whips out a chess board and like….Rhys cannot resist it. He just can’t. Nesta makes one move and it’s like he manages to hold out for a whole two minutes before he snaps and swivels round in his chair to face her properly and within ten minutes he’s completely and utterly engrossed and Nesta is just smirking and looking very pleased with herself. 

YES TO THEM BEING CULTURED TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!! And their partners will go the plays/shows with them but they just don’t ~understand~ (I think Cass is typically…..baffled and Feyre appreciates like musical performances but she’s not as big on theatre or plays or the ballet shows Nesta loves and she doesn’t understand the technical aspects as much?) So they start going together instead and then they go to dinner together afterwards and they talk about it for ages and I think….If you get Nesta talking about something that she loves and is invested in and knows a lot about she. will. not. shut. up. She gets all animated and almost…gushes sometimes and Rhys can be similar in that he just intensely talks about this thing and nothing else and basically on these dinners neither of them really notice what they’re eating and they get home after like six hours and Cass and Feyre are ??? and they’re like ‘what I was only away for like an hour what is wrong?’ 

On the subject of intense talks Feyre definitely ambles into the kitchen at like…two o’clock in the morning because she couldn’t sleep and needed some tea…and to discover the mysterious disappearance of her heat source- uh, mate. As she gets nearer she hears the sounds of soft but very intense and irritated arguing and she recognises Rhys’ voice and Nesta’s and she just sighs because she really thought they were getting on better. Then she actually arrives in the kitchen and realises the two of them are sitting there furiously arguing over the most recent book they’ve read (Nesta and Rhys are part of a book group. It contains two people: Nesta and Rhys. They’re very happy with this arrangement) and Feyre just…smiles a little because at least they’re getting on…and have found someone to channel all of this into. 

HISTORY NERDS. (Amren joins in on this sometimes too but other times she just can’t be bothered at which point she palms Rhys off on Nesta) Listen Nesta would be a total history dork okay, she loooves researching it and I feel like one day she’s just sort of @ Rhys ‘you, you’re old, come here, I have questions.’ Rhys is baffled initially but then completely and utterly delighted when he realises that she wants to talk about history. (I can totally see Nesta writing an account of the war once it’s over btw. And maybe she interviews Rhys and the others about the first war too because I don’t care if you’re immortal you need to write these things down.

SCHEMERS IN CHIEF. I just need someone…to use that beautiful brain inside Nesta’s beautiful head okay. Like. The girl is a low-key genius EXPLOIT THIS PLEASE. She and Cass totally plan battle strategy but she and Rhys just do general strategy, war strategy, how to get the other high lords to co-operate, the terms of treaties, exploiting loopholes and closing loopholes and politics. (I don’t think either of them have any patience for more sort of ‘social politics’ and making nice and all that - that’s Elain’s area of expertise) but cunning manipulative courts relations every day politics they’re both like yep we’ve got this. Rhys listening to Nesta and Nesta being a little alarmed because no man has ever taken into account what she thought or had to say before - especially not on these kinds of subjects. But she shares what she has to say and Rhys listens and this is….a novelty. Because someone has found value in her, in her ideas, in her attention to details, in the way her mind works, in all the things that were suppressed in the mortal realm because no, no, ladies don’t need to worry about this sort of thing or were belittled as idle hobbies now they’re important. Now they’re instrumental in the war. Now she is instrumental in the war. And not because she’s made fae and forced herself into the clothes of a warrior but because she’s her. And Rhys can use that. Also, like, if these two start plotting against you you should just…like just move okay? Just leave the country and go somewhere far faaar away it’s…so much easier. 

Also, like, I know we all want Nesta queen of the female Illyrians and standing up to all the camp lords and training them to fight and all that but…consider: Cassian and Mor, now with Feyre in tow, get sorted on teaching the Illyrian females how to fight and training them and all that jazz. But one day Nesta goes to Rhys like ‘okay, but what about just teaching them? What about their education?’ Because not every girl is a warrior and even the ones that are deserve to be properly educated and that is what Nesta is here for. And just…Cass in charge of the girls’ training and then Nesta in charge of their education makes…a beautiful little pair. 

Rhys helping Nesta to control whatever magic she has because he knows what it feels like, having a power you were never equipped to have boiling away inside you, feeling like it might tear you apart, might drive you mad…He helps her channel and hone her magic, helps her to control it instead of the other way around. He helps her to control her emotions as well (though Cass does most of that, Rhys helps) 

Nesta and Rhys (grudgingly) at formal events and parties together and they spend…..the entire time sipping wine and salting those they have issues with/don’t like (ie….everyone) and looking fabulous while they do it. (they bond so much over salt and mutual dislike of people it’s amazing) 

Rhys going to Nesta for advice about Feyre!! Maybe they have an argument or a fight about something and Feyre is…Difficult to read and throws up all of her walls and he doesn’t know how to get through to her and is despairing. Nesta is…Not best pleased that he upset Feyre but…she does admit they’re good for each other and she does know Feyre better than most. She gives him some terse but welcome advice, helps him understand Feyre’s reactions and how best to approach her. 

Nesta going to Rhys about Cassian. Before they’re mated she tentatively asks him what a mating bond is like, what it feels like, why the heck anyone actually wants one (she’s not too sure how she feels about someone with a direct connection to her able to feel things that she does. Her mind is her sanctuary and she doesn’t much care for the idea of someone else being able to rifle through it whenever they feel like it) Rhys explains it for her, carefully explains what an honour it is to find a mate, that it’s a rare and cherished thing…but one that’s her choice, and her mate’s. Rhys sussing out that Nesta and Cass are mates before pretty much anyone else and he helps talk to Nesta who can’t understand why this happened or why fate or the damn Cauldron or whatever else would do this to Cassian and leave him stuck with her. Rhys calms her down and talks to her about it, because mother knows he understands what it’s like to feel like you’re not worthy of your mate - and he still struggles with that sometimes, he admits to her, but it’s worth it.  

I feel like these two would actually talk to each other about their shit (not all of it) but…On quiet evenings when they’re just sipping wine and have exhausted all the history/book/play discussion sometimes little things slip out. Nothing too personal but I think Rhys would tell her about his issues with running the court and the pressures on him as High Lord which he never fully feels he can share with his Circle because…well they’re part of his court, he has to keep them safe too and it can be a bit lonely and isolating sometimes. Feyre helps, obviously, and he talks to her about sort of day to day problems but just the general pressure of responsibility in general he talks to Nesta about. And she maybe opens up a little about her worries of not quite belonging anywhere and Rhys can understand that and just. They have little heart-to-hearts sometimes - the little things that they can’t quite tell anyone else/don’t know where else to put them. 

Just. RHYS AND NESTA OKAY. I LIVE FOR THIS. 

that smile though,

that smile that graces his face
that smile that reaches his eyes
that smile that changes his whole demeanor

it’s worth everything
all the pain
all the hurt
it’s worth it

over and over again

just to see him smile like that
like he’s truly happy, at last,

makes my world go
just like a merry-go-round

just so, just so

My Tall Boyfriend // Kim Yugyeom

Genre: Fluff

Summary//Request: smalliemichelle99 said: Hi admin!! I love you scenarios, so can I request for a Yugyeom scenario where he introduce his girlfriend to the members and they tease him for the height difference cause she is so short?? THANKS IN ADVANCE ADMIN.


“Are you sure I look okay? I don’t look too stupid right? Are they all going to be there when we go in?” you asked Yugyeom nervously as you struggled to keep up with his pace while you were both en route to GOT7 dorms.

“Stop worrying jagiya, you never look stupid! You know that I think you always look cute” he cooed into your face as he tugged on your hand, pulling you closer into him. His loving affections were beautiful, but it didn’t stop the lump from forming in your throat.


You met Yugyeom around 8 months ago by chance in the convenience store that you worked part time in. He was buying ridiculous amounts of ice-cream and snacks, trying to juggle them all in his arms as he waddled towards you at the cash register. Of course, you knew who he was the moment you seen him – you would have been living under a rock if you didn’t, but you couldn’t believe that he was in your store. You played it cool, not acting like a typical fan girl as he set all of his things down on the counter for you to scan them. When you told him the total, you saw him rummaging around in his backpack and pockets, obviously looking for his wallet before donning a face that you seen very frequently. The look of “Oh shit, I forgot my wallet”.

“Uh…I’m really sorry but I forgot my wallet to pay for all of this. I’ll just go and put it back” he said, red faced and embarrassed as the people behind him in the queue began to get impatient. You sighed, feeling totally sorry for him and knowing that he was very obviously telling the truth.

“It’s okay, I can spot you this time. Just come by later and pay it, okay?” you smiled sweetly as you pulled out some money from your own purse which was under the counter. Yugyeom looked at you wide eyed, thankful but still mortified. When he returned a few hours later to pay you, the rest of GOT7 had persuaded him to ask you for your number – to which he bravely chanced his luck, and of course, you gave it to him willingly. Now, 8 months later, you were proud to call him your boyfriend; and today he wanted to finally introduce you to his older brothers. You were extremely apprehensive. Would they like you? Would they see you for who you are, rather than just another girl who was a fan?


You arrived at the dorms, going through the back entrance with Yugyeom. As he punched in the security code to open the door, you heart started thumping so loudly that you were sure the whole world could hear it. Before opening the door, Yugyeom turned round to you, towering over your frame before pulling you in close and hugging you tightly.

“Don’t worry (Y/N), I promise you that everything will be fine. They will love you, okay?” he whispered as he placed a small, chaste kiss on top of your forehead, making you smile a little before looking up at him and blinking cutely, giving him a pout that you knew he never could resist. He ruffled your hair a little, before opening the door and stepping in before you, pulling you behind him and closing the door behind the both of you.

“We’re here!” Yugyeom called out as both of you took your shoes off and placed them on the rack. You wanted to keep your eyes on the floor as you heard footsteps coming towards the two of you.

“The maknae is back!” Jackson shouted as he ran up and gave Yugyeom a massive bear-like hug, not even noticing you as you stood back and let them have their moment together.

“So? Where is she man? Didn’t you say you were bringing her back with you?” Jackson questioned Yugyeom as he pulled away from the hug. Yugyeom turned around and looked down at you, motioning for you to come forward.

“She’s here! Jackson this is (Y/N), (Y/N) meet Jackson~” Yugyeom said, his voice sounding a little nervous now that he was actually introducing you. Jackson looked behind him, before looking down at your face and widening his eyes as he looked at both of you standing together.

“Is that Yugyeom with his girl?” you heard a voice call out from the kitchen, before watching  the rest of the boys walking in one after the other, seeing you, Yugyeom and Jackson standing and staring at each other. For a brief moment, everyone stood staring at the both of you, one very obvious thing on everyone’s minds.

“It’s nice to meet you (Y/N), I’m Jaebum” Jaebum spoke first, stepping forward and nearly bending down to shake your hand. You smiled and shook his hand back politely, trying to not move any further away from Yugyeom as the rest of the boys introduced themselves to you and shook your hand.

“It’s great to finally meet Gyeomies girl! Aigooooo, look at you both. But isn’t it awkward?” BamBam asked innocently, the rest of the boys snapping their heads around at his backhanded remark as you stood there, feeling completely confused.

“What do you mean?” Yugyeom asked, a little defensive and feeling much like you. Jackson and Youngjae giggled a little before Jinyoung stepped closer to him, patting him and you on the head and moving back, keeping his hands at the same height away from your heads.

“I think what BamBam meant was…she’s so small compared to you! We didn’t know that short girls were your type, she’s so cute!” Jinyoung giggled along with Jackson and Youngjae – Mark looking at your reaction as you went completely red in the face and wanted the world to swallow you up. It was true, you looked like a child compared to Yugyeom as he was a complete foot taller than you. But you never really thought about it until now.

“Hey guys, don’t be so mean! Yeah, she’s short but Yugyeom is also freakishly tall for his age.” Mark tried to take the attention off you a little, making you look up at Yugyeom as he took you hand in his, smiling sheepishly.

“No, no, no! Don’t get me wrong at all! It’s not a bad thing; you’re both unbelievably cute together! It’s just so adorable seeing our giant maknae beside you! Please don’t take offence…you don’t feel bad, right? I didn’t mean to…” Jackson began apologising in fear of upsetting both you and Yugyeom, coming closer and leaning down, placing his hand on the side of your arm.

“Don’t worry! It must seem strange…I am really tiny after all. But actually, once you get to know me I’m super loud and energetic, so I guess it makes up for my lack of…tall-ness?” you said, not intending for it to sound as funny as it came out as all 7 boys roared with laughter, making you laugh in turn as Yugyeom pulled you closer in to him, his ears turning pink at the tips from this hyung’s comments about how cute you both looked together.

“Alright, alright! Let’s welcome (Y/N) to the family, GOT7 style! (Y/N), we’ve prepared some snacks and some movies – and since you’re our guest, you can have the honour of choosing! We’re all so glad to meet the girl that’s been making our maknae so happy…along with missing some practices but…I can see why he’s been missing them now” Jaebum motioned everyone towards the living room, giving Yugyeom a sly smile as he walked past. You thanked him politely, not quite sure how to reply to his statement as you joined the rest of the boys in the room, before sitting down in between your boyfriend’s long legs with your back pressed against his chest, to watch a movie with your new ‘family’ – and you couldn’t have been more happy in this moment than you had been in your entire life.

Prompt fill for my Follower Celebration!

I had to fight myself to not make this a longfic…

…I still might.

Thank you so much for your prompt, and thank you to @melonbugg for making my whole world go ‘round.


The prince loved the events, the excitement that came along with balls. He loved the lights, the dancing, the laughter; he was always swept up in the feelings that carried the room. He danced with pretty woman after pretty woman as he danced down the aisles in the same predestined movements every man on the floor was taught from childhood. He like to throw out little flirty lines, like “your hair smells amazing” or “I have yet to see eyes as stunning as yours,” leaving the ladies of the court giggling as he laughed and switched partners once again, moving down the line and making every single one blush.

By the time the dance was over, Matt was flushed himself. Laughing, he joined the man standing on the edge of the room with a military posture, arm held behind his back and feet should width apart. He wore a fond smile on his scarred face.

“Have fun, my prince?” He asked.

Matt smiled right back. “Significantly less fun without you.”

Matt spent a few moments cooling down with his bodyguard before spinning back into the crowd.

steve sneaking into tony’s workshop while he’s totally caught up in the middle of something and doesn’t notice that steve’s there. and steve watches him being adorable and geeky and brilliant, and talking away to himself like the dork he is, and he catches himself with this little besotted smile on his face.

anyway he kinda wouldn’t mind just sitting there and watching but he feels a little bit like a creep cause tony is spectacularly oblivious and still doesn’t seem to have noticed steve there. so he takes out his notebook and a little pencil stub he always keeps in his pocket. (tony teases him endlessly about carrying an actual pencil around bcs apparently only senior citizens do that these days.)

and he starts drawing tony, hair wild and sticking up everywhere, eyes big and sparkling and bright with ideas, hands flailing as he pulls up six holograms on top of each other. tony in an ancient soft t-shirt with a kitten on it. tony’s body drawn in soft penciled lines.

then tony turns round and steve shifts a little and tony gets the fright of his goddamn life. he makes an undignified squeaky noise and flails and falls off the bench he’s standing on and lands in a twitchy pile on the floor.

and steve comes rushing over and he’s all like god, he’s so sorry! he should have said something! god, is tony okay?

tony makes a pathetic little moan from his heap and steve’s all over him with a worry wrinkle in his forehead, hands running over tony everywhere to check he’s okay. he can feel tony’s heart going thud-thud-thud in his chest. tony’s so warm and compact and steve doesn’t want to let go.

and then tony looks up at him with big brown eyes and steve’s basically got his arms round him and tony’s holding his breath. and it just seems like the easiest thing in the world for steve to lean forward and kiss him softly on his parted lips.

tony’s whole body shivers and he kisses back, sort of desperate and longing, making tiny little sounds into the kiss. when they come apart, tony’s eyes stay shut for a few long moments, his lips parted, breath shaky. steve watches his face, loving him so much he doesn’t know what to do with himself.

then tony’s eyes open slowly, heavy-lidded, and he says, ‘did - did that really happen, did i hit my head, i - am i awake?’

and steve laughs softly and presses their foreheads together. ‘yeah, you’re awake, sweetheart,’ he murmurs, and kisses tony’s nose. then he remembers that tony just fell off a table, and he freezes and says in a horrified voice, ‘GOD are you okay, tony?’

and tony looks at him and starts cracking up because seriously, who else would this happen to. and he’s like ‘yeah, i’m fine, like so much more than fine, but hey, steve, next time just ASK if you want a kiss, you don’t hafta make me fall off a table.’

and steve groans and presses his forehead into tony’s shoulder bcs he knows that tony’s literally never going to let him live this down.

anonymous asked:

My teacher who is a psychologist told me that the show teaches the wrong things because it glamorizes suicide, it teaches to blame everybody else when in reality life is not perfect and there are people who have been through far worse and still go on. It teaches you to be a coward and selfish. Hannah showed traits of a psychopath by killing herself and showing the tapes like it was revenge, that is extremely inconsiderate. 1/2

I know the show is trying to get a message across but it is so poorly executed, it shows the tapes like revenge and that is a horrible thing to do. You can’t just blame everybody that’s the cowards way out. It feels horrible for someone to blame you for something like that. 2/2

—————-

Well, obviously from looking at my page, you know that I’m going to disagree with you (which is fine, that’s what makes the world go round, right?). 

I see a lot of this “!3 Reasons Why romanticized suicide and made it so pretty and poetic” but I haven’t seen any examples as to how that is so. I mean, I can understand where you are coming from regarding the whole “tape/revenge” plot and how that could be problematic, but the suicide itself? Not romanticized in the least. It’s messy, and horrifying, and lonely, and nausea inducing. And the repercussions of the act? Those are even messier. You have a kid set to shoot a school, another one who shot himself in the head, a rapist who has faced zero repercussions, a boy who lost the girl he loves and now has absolutely no one, parents who are lost and confused and destroyed over their daughter taking her own life. Nothing is resolved, nothing is fixed by Hannah’s death, nothing comes out of Hannah’s death, everyone is just…damaged. There is the faint possibility of some people changing their behavior (Clay with Skye, Tony, Alex), but most of those kids? Nothing changes for them. And thats real, that’s raw. When things like suicide happen, some people are going to be moved and affected and jarred by the happenings of it, and other people, as terrible as it sounds, just…well, aren’t. 

And suicide is the person who is committing it’s decision and there is no way around that, I agree with you there. But there are multiple instances in the series that a few different characters literally say the words “Hannah took her OWN life, that at the end of the day, is no one’s fault but her own”. Yet at the same time, what the show is trying to do with the tapes and with the idea that “Everyone killed Hannah Baker” is to make a statement about bullying, and about the effects of how  caught up we get in our own lives, how we care too much about what other people will think about us and how that causes us  to sit down when we should be standing up for what’s right. And that’s an important lesson to learn- for the teens and even in regards to school administrations. For me, some of the most powerful moments are when Clay and Alex are challenging the school for their “glossing over” the issues of Hannah’s death and not really doing anything to change the situation. 

And of course life is not perfect. But dude…Hannah was bullied, made out to be a school slut, had no friends and then was RAPED. Do people “Go through worse”? Sure, but what she went through was pretty fucking horrific. Being raped, especially at such a young age, and then witnessing another rape of someone who is considered to be your friend? And then to not be able to talk to anyone about that, or have anyone listen? I’m not saying that should drive someone to suicide, but for someone who was already mentally struggling, it absolutely could. 

It kind of honestly disgusts me that your teacher is telling you that basically people who have suicidal tendencies are selfish and cowards and over dramatic. People who go through that are really suffering. And while I understand the argument that Hannah’s mental illness was not clearly highlighted enough throughout the series, and agree that if they had done so, it would have been a  better balance of it being both her own personal demons as well as the treatment from those around her, it’s kind of jaw dropping that your teacher seems to be doing exactly what the show tries to explain teachers shouldn’t do, which is once again, gloss over the issues and just brush it off like anyone who commits suicide is just some selfish dramatic loser. 

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death for teenagers. So whether you agree with the reasons Hannah took her life or not, or think that people who commit suicide are selfish or not- it’s still happening. And if we just ignore it and turn the other cheek and roll our eyes at everyone who is crying out for help then we are part of the problem. And that is exactly what the show is trying to prove. Why in this world can we show so little patience, so little compassion for people who are fighting inner battles, mental illnesses, struggling to find light in a dark time? Why can’t we just reach out a hand and even if we can’t empathize, sympathize. Why can’t we start giving more of a shit, and try to change things? 

Hannah Baker wasn’t perfect. Personally, I think the show highlighted that. I didn’t “just feel bad for”- there were times where she really pissed me off and I thought she was being a brat. But that doesn’t take away the fact that she was clearly suffering and no one cared enough to change how they treated her, and she didn’t care enough to change how she treated herself. It’s a domino effect. And it’s very, very real. 

The show isn’t perfect. But it’s saying something. And people are talking about things that need to be talked about. This show knew that it was going to face criticism from certain people who didn’t agree with how things were being portrayed because we all view entertainment from a different perspective. But they did it anyway, and it’s making a difference. And that’s all that matters, when it comes down to it. 


But that’s just me.

(1/2) Judging from how antis are going, it probably won't be long before they start cannibalizing themselves seeing as you can see that they're caving in from the pressure they've put themselves in and don't even bother to hide how homophobic/racist/ableist they really are anymore. They preach about how they support LGBT and PoC, but will resort to racial slurs, insults and throw a tantrum when a PoC or someone part of the LGBT call them out on wrongdoings. They don't shut up about how they're-

Real people get uncomfortable or maybe set off from a ship, but screaming such a loaded word cheapens it and could get the attention of the wrong type of people and could endanger the safety of actual minors. Think before you use these words

Literally all of this is 🙌🏼

Antis constantly ranting about how shaladin supporters etc are making fandoms a ‘bad place ’ when literally they are the ones doing that. They are brainwashing younger teenagers into believing straight up false definitions of things like pedophilia and exposing them to such blatant ableism and misinformation regarding mental health issues. They’re telling these kids that going round and actively attacking people who like harmless things you don’t like or understand is an acceptable way to behave. That kind of environment is so toxic and it’s leaving us with a generation of idiotic teenagers who expect the whole world to fall around them and who expect to be wrapped in cotton wool their entire lives. That is not reality and they are going to learn that so abruptly and in a pretty hard way.

Away From Redemption

Request by anon: Idk if you’re taking requests right now but can you do an angsty dean x reader with extremely jealous dean and many complicated misunderstandings, and huge fights? I just can’t seem to find anything angsty enough lately and you’re one of the best writers on tumblr, with good grammar to boot. (Surprisingly rare). K, bye. Love ya honey!

Word Count: 1383

Warnings: Depression

A/N: This takes place a few months after Swan Song. I’m not quite sure if this is the kind of angst you were looking for, but it’s the kind of angst I was feeling so… it’s what you’re getting. I’ll keep going with A+ Secrets later, but I just needed to write this one last night. And I’m not writing a part 2 for this one because sometimes you just can’t find a happy ending. You just need an ending that doesn’t try to make you feel better. And sometimes that’s okay.

Version en Español: Away From Redemption


He came back smelling like he’d taken a shower in beer. Again.

You knew he was just going to stumble past you and fall onto the creaky hotel bed and pass out until noon tomorrow. That’s what he did every night since Sam jumped into the Cage. Nothing you did or said could make him feel better, and it hurt that you couldn’t help him.

So you stood from the table, grabbed your jacket and purse, and headed for the door. He was safe for now. That was all you needed to know.

Part 1: Watch Your Symptoms

It’s been said that writers should know everything about every character that’s portrayed in any way in order to make them round and complex. Unfortunately, this mentality can produce an obsessive worry in some writers that they don’t know enough about their world, their characters, their anything. They go back to the metaphorical (or literal) drawing board to create entire characters, sometimes diving in so far as to create whole cultures just for the sake of a side character. The mentality of knowing everything about every character can sometimes lead to advanced cases of world-builder’s disease.

(opinion alert) One famous sufferer from world-builder’s disease was the great J.R.R. Tolkien himself. If you’ve spent any kind of time around my blog, you know I don’t play around with Middle Earth, and you know my adoration of the world and characters. I recognize the work he’s done and the detail he’s added to the books and essays surrounding his world, but I also recognize that it’s sometimes a bit too much. Sometimes, even Tolkien himself gets out of hand. Obviously this shows that world-builder’s disease won’t cripple a writer’s chance of publication (if that’s your goal), but I believe that prose can always be stronger once the writer recognizes their burgeoning case of world-builder’s disease. So what is it?

World-Builder’s Syndrome/Disease

In which a writer gets so caught up in the intricate inner workings of a world that the story is never actually written.

I call this Strain A of world-builder’s disease. It’s the more severe variety in which the story never actually gets told because the writer’s so wrapped up in trying to cover all their bases. The thought behind the mentality is that the writer wants to have all the pieces already laid out for them to reference when they actually get started. The problem is that worlds and cultures and architecture and characters are all interconnected. There are thousands (probably more accurately trillions) of tiny pieces of data that depend on each other to create the web of the world. Even writing modern stories set somewhere on this Earth in our own timeline requires all kinds of tiny details. Strain A’s most detrimental side-effect is that the writer has very little by way of completed text to show for their work. Yes, they have piles and piles of notebooks and maps, but where’s the story?

Treatment: Unfortunately, there’s not very many techniques to get a writer out of this mentality. Eventually, the story must simply be written. Recognize that it’s something you struggle with, realize that all you have is a multitude of notes, and start writing. That’s it. That’s all you can do. Your anxiety that you aren’t prepared may skyrocket, but hopefully once you settle in to the story, that’ll level out. Be careful, though. Sufferers of Strain A world-builder’s disease are particularly prone to falling ill of Strain B world-builder’s disease.

In which a writer gets so caught up in the intricate inner workings of a world that they flood the story with the details.

Strain B is what I call this just-as-bad variant of the dreaded world-builder’s disease. Very original, I know. I think the distinction between the two of these strains is very important. The story of a writer with Strain A never gets written, but at least Stain B sufferers manage to get some of their story down. Too bad the story is bogged down with all kinds of detail and data pieces that aren’t always needed simply because the writer is excited that they know them. They want to share! They want to show all that hard world-building work they’ve done! It’s commendable, but often the prose turns out to be bogged down and littered with little things that–while adding texture to the world–are unimportant to the story’s plot and character development at large.

Treatment: It’s impossible to treat world-builder’s disease without first recognizing that it’s a problem. Writers have to first realize that while, yes, all the planning is a form of research, it eventually turns into the most absorbing and fulfilling form of procrastination. It’s impossible to know every single detail about the story’s world. And to be frank, how much of that do you really need? Embrace the spontaneity of writing. Sometimes sufferers of Strain B world-builder’s disease will write along and come up against a detail they don’t know. The writer will stop, back away from the piece, and turn to developing the entirety of whatever they decided they needed. This can be a productive technique when handled carefully. It’s important not to dwell too long on creating those little details. Sometimes simply inserting something logical for a detail and continuing to write without breaking stride too much works just fine.

If you’re planning on employing this to break your wold-builder’s disease, it may help your anxiety to track some of those spontaneous choices in a document separate from your story. Make note of what detail you added (ex. Cyrian’s cousin Banys once had a pet iguana), in what context it was put (ex. iguana mentioned in casual conversation), and if you’re really dedicated to a character timeline note where/when in your story it occurred (ex. previous to the second invasion).

(do you struggle with world-builder’s disease? how do you deal with it? are you still struggling to get out of your planning phase? I’m always here to help.)

Part 2 will delve into which characters should be filled out, which can be sketched, and further more which need only the barest of notice.

They’ll tell you to stop spending so much time thinking about boys and romanticizing your desire to find yourself a fairy tale ending because the world is not a storybook. You will be told that the world does not revolve around having a relationship and you are not some half meant to be made whole by a man. But one day you will meet your other half and have your storybook ending. Then you will discover that love does in fact make the world go ‘round and having more of it with you all of this time would have made things a whole lot easier.

lilaac-skyy  asked:

i want to jump on the compliment bus because you are wonderful and everyone should tell you (and everyone in the whole world because love makes the world go round kumbaya) <3 <3 I love you and you are a magnificent starwhale!!!! *throws glitter and gallops way*

.

Arms wrapped around you from behind and you see the words ‘I must  respect the head mistress’ scarred on the top of the left hand, and you realise it’s Fred. You wriggle out of his grip and walk into the great hall. “Oh, come on. It’s been a week and I’ve said sorry more times than I have breathed! What do you want me to do?” He groaned.
“Leave me alone, Weasley.”
“Ouch, don’t last name me, we are on more than a first name basis.” You rolled your eyes and sat down next to Ginny on the Gryffindor table. “Girls are so complicated.” He mumbled to his twin.
“No we’re not, you’re just stupid. Putting a Nosebleed Nougat in her drink was cruel.” Ginny said, making you thankful that she sided with you.
“You can’t be grumpy at me forever (Y/N)!”
“I can try.”

In the middle of the feast Fred stood up on the bench. “What are you doing? Get down or you’ll fall!” You yelled at him.
“Are you going to accept my apology?” He asked.
“No, but breaking your neck for me is just stupid! Get down!” People were starting to stare and McGonagall was looking over with interest.
“ I’m sorry I’m bad, I’m sorry you’re blue,” He started singing, very loudly.
“Fred-”
“I’m sorry about all things I said to you,”
“Fred get down everyones staring!”
“And I know I can’t take it back,”
“Fred stop-”
“I love how you kiss, I love all your sounds, and baby the way you make my world go round.”
“Fred-” The whole school was watching at this point, including all of the teachers.
“And I just wanted to say I’m sorry.  This time I-”
“OKAY I FORGIVE YOU!”
“Really?”
“Yes.”
“Really really?”
“God dammit Freddie just get down!” You yelled, pulling at his arm for him to sit on the bench. Dumbledore starting clapping, causing the rest of the hall to burst into applause, George being the loudest and adding wolf whistling. Fred stood again to bow and sat back down, giving you an over dramatic wink. You groaned and hid your face in his chest. “You’ll be the death of me, Fred Weasley.”
“Ditto.”

anonymous asked:

I read your theory about Dazai keeping the book the Fitz is dying to have and I can't help but think what if there really is no book and it's Dazai that Fitz is actually looking for and underneath the bandages are actually writings or scribbles much like in Nabari no Ou where the main character's just suddenly covered with these writings. Anyway, it's because I also read another theory that if Dazai knows the book then why doesn't he try to revive odasaku but then again we all know how he doesn

same anon here lol i ran out of space(?) anyway continuing where I left, if Dazai knows about the book and if he actually has the book why doesn’t he try to revive odasaku but then again we also all know that he does not believe in bringing the dead back to life. There’s also the name of his ability No Longer Human, which kinda has the opposite effect to those he touches because he cancels out their ability and kind makes them human again? 

Aaah—! That’s an interesting theory! tho I don’t really lean on any of the bandage theories in particular because there’s not much to go off of. but I do want to know the bandage mystery! 

Anyway, about bringing Oda back to life — I think that depends on a few things 

  • Why was the book sealed off in the first place? 
  • What are the requirements to bringing someone back to life?
  • Does Dazai need to work on any of the requirements if there are?

I imagine there are either sacrifices or consequences to using the book, your classic you-get-what-you-wish-for dilemma. Honestly, I can’t help but think of Full Metal Alchemist when I think about the book Fitz wants @nkhrchy suggested it might make people immortal, which is even more interesting than what I was thinking  

I feel as though Dazai would refrain from bringing Oda back into a painful existence — e.g. suffering an eternity on earth or bearing the burden that x number of people died to bring him back to life

About Dazai not believing in bringing the dead back to life  — are you referring to the Tanabata twitter post that @looking-for-stray-dogs translated here? i’m not sure how reliable that statement/belief is, coming from him  

the name of Dazai’s ability gets me because everyone else’s seems to make sense so far (i’m not sure about Mori yet). if it really doesn’t relate to his suicidal obsession, i’ve taken it to mean that Dazai himself is no longer human because he has an ability. yet he’s still a really… average human? aside from his sociopathic qualities but otherwise, i’d say that it goes with my ability activation theory for him  

Other book theory considerations:

How did Dazai know Atsushi would make a good pair with Akutagawa before even knowing he had an ability?! (an anon on nkhrchy’s blog brought this up)

it’s possible that Dazai was drawing Atsushi to him all along, since Dazai already had the book? so he knew Atsushi was the tiger ability user from the get-go? 

another thing is that Dazai mentions needing to buy his book in the prologue of the first light novel: 

“Truth be told, there’s a book called The Complete Suicide Manual that’s really rare. I’ve been looking for it all this time, and I found it displayed in front of an antique bookstore – Ah, we have to go back soon or else it’ll be bought.”

[translation by @chendaere — bless your dear soul. people like you are what make the world go round] 

generally speaking, prologues contain rather important information because the author wants to build a promising story premise. of course—if my theory holds up, Dazai buying the book when he first joined the agency raises a lot more questions and i could probably write a whole other post on that

finally, going off the whole immortal idea — i’ve started to wonder if Lovecraft ever got a hold of the book Fitz wants? i mean, what the hell is with the question marks after his age and birthday at the end of chapter 31?? anyway, i think that theory borderlines more on conspiracy, but seriously Lovecraft, what are you
