Social Standards  Me.

My own tribute to the nails, and an opportunity for me to hate standards.

Now, i’ll proceed to freak the fuck out of here.

(sorry for i have been very busy and stressed bc school is killing me I swear that’s why I haven’t drawn much, but im working in a big drawing and you are all going to love it MUAHAHHHAHAHAHA)


Listen this is literally me at all times I’m actually. So nosey? On the bus with my earphones in no music playing 💀 the other day I was sleep on the couch my sister and her friends were right there talking about me as I woke up but me: 😴😴😴👀👀👀📝📝📝 me in the library rn staring intensely at the wall to fine tune my audio reception 👂🏾👂🏾👂🏾🔎🔎📡


This was stupid

This whole thing, it was so stupid, and it made Annabeth feel stupid, and she wasn’t stupid, she was smart, gods damn it, so why couldn’t she do this? She should have been able to do this.

She only realised she was crying when a tear splashed on to the page of her textbook, blurring the black letters printed on the white page. That tear falling felt like conceding defeat, and soon enough she was crying in earnest, sobbing hard enough that the words became even less intelligible than they’d already been.

She put her head down on the book and let herself cry, feeling terribly stupid and sorry and frustrated. Her whole face felt hot, flushed with anger and annoyance - at this essay, at herself, at the fact that she was a daughter of the goddess of wisdom and she couldn’t seem to write a simple fucking essay.

When the door to her room opened she instinctively straightened, grabbing her dagger and spinning in her seat to face the intruder. When she saw who it was she immediately collapsed back onto the desk, face first, letting her dagger fall to the floor. 

She heard Percy shut the door behind himself. There were a few soft footsteps, and then a gentle hand on her shaking shoulder and a quiet question. “Annabeth, hey, what’s up?”

Making his way back into the main cabin, Gabriel was greeted by yet another handsome face that he’d never seen before. The poise & confidence that he carried himself with were immediately noticeable. Thinking himself an old soul with a young heart, Gabe was pleased to see another mature gentleman had come to compete for him. Gabriel cleared his throat & the man turned on his heel, a charming smile gracing his lips. Hi, I don’t think I’ve introduced myself yet. I’m Gabriel. 

You have not. I certainly would remember meeting someone as striking as you, he remarked, taking in the young man before him. My name is Ravi. It is very, very nice to meet you Gabriel.

Gabe could feel his cheeks start to burn & he hoped it wasn’t too obvious to the man. Do you want to have a seat? You can tell me a little bit about yourself & why you’re here.

Where to begin? Ravi mused, taking a seat on the stiff cushion. I stopped himself from letting out an audible groan. He had to remind himself this was only temporary. Once he’d won Gabriel’s heart, he could take him home & away from this dreadful place. I’m a business man, the CEO of a large, very prosperous corporation. I’ve done very well for myself through a lot of hard work. After focusing on that for so long, I thought maybe it was time to focus on myself. I would love nothing more than to settle into a quiet life with a gorgeous man. 

And you don’t mind that being someone younger than you? Gabe inquired. 

Age is but a number. Of course I don’t mind, as long as he is the type of person I could spend the rest of my days with, the older man shrugged. Leaning forward, he looked straight into the bachelor’s eyes. You are wise, passionate & dedicated. I know men my age who haven’t accomplished what you have. 

Accomplished? Me?

I’ve read of some of your work. Your latest preservation project was a huge success. At your age, you seem to be making quite the name for yourself, Ravi explained excitedly, his smile wider than before. I must say that you intrigue me. I like that. I can’t wait to find out more.



*jumps on the bandwagon MONTHS late*

don’t think about Hope and Lightning going on their first date in the new world and being all shy about it since neither of them had a typical teenage dating experience

don’t think about him giving her pink roses, because “they were pretty and match [your] hair”

don’t think about that little moment of hesitation before their first kiss, where they just kind of hold their breaths and glance at each other’s lips before slowly leaning in

don’t think about their lazy Sunday dates when they order takeout and sit in front of their Netflix queue, making random comments about whatever they’re watching

don’t think about Lightning needing to look up at Hope when they’re standing up; seriously, when did he get so tall??

don’t think about the first time she spends the night at his place, and it’s a little strange because this is the first time she’s shared a bed with someone since she and Serah were kids, but Hope lets her toss and turn until she finally admits that she’s most comfortable snuggled up against him

don’t think about Hope being little spoon

don’t think about Hope working on some sort of project for his job and getting a little stressed about it, so Lightning takes his mind off it for awhile with a date night

don’t think about her staring at him when he’s asleep and wondering if he’s always had all those freckles

don’t think about them traveling around together, taking silly touristy pictures and a bunch of selfies

don’t think about the first time he tells her that he loves her - in a perfectly romantic moment under the stars

don’t think about the first time she says it - just blurts it out seemingly outta nowhere: “I can’t believe you spend more time on your hair than I do; you’re lucky I love you or this might be a deal breaker.”

don’t think about him giving her a key to his place

don’t think about him easily grabbing her hand when they’re out together, their fingers slotting together so naturally it’s a wonder they were ever apart at all

don’t think about his arm automatically sliding around her shoulders when they’re on the couch and her leaning against him without even thinking about it

don’t think about them dozing off together, with Lightning’s head on Hope’s chest, and nothing is more soothing than the steady thudding of his heart as he holds her close

don’t think about these two idiots in love forever and always with not even death parting them because their bond literally survived through different worlds and lives and nothing will keep them apart ever again

Lydia looks up at her mom after much care and comfort from not only her but everyone in the room and asks, “Can we go home now?” Of course Natalie won’t turn her down on that one, and she’s just about to swing her legs over the table and hop down when Stiles jumps in and stops her in her tracks like, “Hold the phone, you’re not wearing any shoes.” At this she looks down at her feet to discover he’s right. Before anyone can stop him (herself included), he has one arm behind her knees and the other wrapped around her upper back, carrying her out to a safer place to stand and walk.

@divine-party-junkie answered your ask:❝ I’ve lost too much. I’ve given up too much. I’m…

It really wasn’t in the effect of comfort, per se, but it did make the draconic princess begin to giggle in the middle of her self-pitying spiral, which drew it up short.  Perhaps self-pitying wasn’t the best way for her to think of it either, but Kamui falling apart in this or any stage of the war was simply not something that could happen.

Though…so many people depending on her.  That was the trouble, wasn’t it?  She couldn’t do this, didn’t have a moment for despair or self pity.  Normal people could moan and complain about their burden in life.  She had to smile and talk about kindness and hope for the future.

But Izana always made her smile.  He was just a delightfully unexpected man.  No matter how well you got to know him you were always thinking he was going to say something wise and impressive…and what he did say was always rather wonderful, in her opinion.

Her response was a touch of wit.  Around Izana it was contagious. “I’m not.  I’m a dragon.”

Her expression relaxed somewhat.  “I’m sorry Izana.  It’s…just hard sometimes.  I feel like my soul is eroding with every day this war goes on.  I was never meant to kill, or get people hurt.  And I worry I don’t know enough to get everyone through this…and that my inexperience will get someone killed.”

“I can’t give up.  I know I can’t give up…but I just get so tired.”

The James and Aleks Beyond: Two Souls stream is fucking ICONIC okay

when ppl’s biases for one family shows to the point that they think the other family is badly written and has no development

anonymous asked:

I agree that DS was partially forced into his public persona - he has said that being on variety wasn't easy for him (which I find surprising bc his comic timing & wit seems to come so naturally), but he did it to get BB's name out to the public. The smiling is also partly a defense...he says that he used to smile even when upset or getting scolded. The members have always said that he's the most mysterious of them all bc he reveals so little about himself and his thoughts.

I have the same impression about his smiling. I feel like it might not even be a conscious thing for him. I think he does it to reassure others that he’s happy (even though he may not be) and that they shouldn’t worry about him. It probably all comes back to ensuring that he’s not being a burden to others. That would also explain why he doesn’t like to reveal his thoughts. Personally, I feel without burden when I see that smile so it’s super effective. He totally knows what he’s doing. It’s very distracting!! Distracting enough to not question what he’s really feeling unless you really know him like all of the BIGBANG members do. They probably got upset when he smiled during those times because they knew that he wasn’t actually happy and probably wished he would just say how he was actually feeling. We all have our own way of dealing with things and smiling is just one of his.

I actually don’t mind that he’s a bit mysterious because I think that makes him all the more interesting. I think that’s part of why he’s my bias tbh. I do think he has let go a bit more this year though. He seems to speak his mind more and honestly his face is so expressive that you can kinda tell what he’s thinking most of the time. Like when he looks super bored when the others are talking lmao. You know the face.

As usual, these are just my thoughts. I am in no sense a Kang Daesung expert.

@daisyduval is thirsty for anons, if you truly love me, you’ll go send him how much you love Audrey Jensen right now :))) 

I think after all this time I have finally realized what it is about you that I am and was so drawn too. I spent five years with her and I had best friends, but I couldn’t talk to them about everything and anything in our relationship that I liked or disliked. Then you came along with that giggle and smile and opened me right up. I could tell you the good and the bad and you would actually listen to me. Hell after all this time and everything we went through you still listen to me about it. I have never been able to talk to anyone about the shit that I go through. You are the only outsider that knows everything. That was huge for me. And talking about it made me only realize how much I had fallen in love with you. You herd and learned about all my flaws and defects from stories about her and you still wanted to kiss me goodnight when it was time to go. You never pushed me away no matter how shitty the situation was for you. You were always open and there for me. And I abused that. I’m sorry. I know you tell me your fine and you very well may be..however, I don’t believe that. It’s a nice front to protect yourself bc when we talk you feel that spark light up just like it used too. Bc we were there for each other through some shit times and nothing can every change that. I will always love you till the day I die, but I need to let you go.
