Even though I'm not ok with Silver telling Madi Flint's secrets, it actually makes her support of Flint even stronger. She knows everything, she knows his motives. And she didn't immediately jump on pity train either. She still mistrusted him at the start of s4. It's only after they had to spend more time together and actually talk and listen to each other that everything fell into place for both of them. She's not fooled or delusional about his reasons for war. She knows and embraces them.

*Madi knows Flint’s motives anon* What I’m trying to say is… Some people were saying that Madi trusts Flint only because she doesn’t know his motives are selfish. Nope. She knows. And his war and her war are equal in her eyes. Isn’t that beautiful? “Flint’s war, my war”. And it’s not because of pity. It’s recognition and understanding. I love it. Why is BS so good at creating unconventional relationships? It’s their forte.


After I thought about this some more I realized it makes perfect sense that Madi knew. I don’t think she would ever trust someone, especially not a white man and a pirate, if she didn’t know his motives and agreed with them. She must have learned that Flint is essentially fighting this war for lost love (or for family, depending what version of the story Silver told her, but either way it works), meaning she was able to sympathise with him because she too fights for something similar, though on a much bigger scale.

She understood why Silver trusted him, but she couldn’t support him yet because Silver’s word and Flint’s motives alone weren’t enough. She needed to see it for herself. How deeply Flint is tied to it all, how far he’s willing to go for it, just how much it all means to him. Because if she was to give all of herself to this war she needed him to be 100% committed, as well, in order to make the alliance work. Once she got to know him, once she saw the strength of his commitment, that’s when she let him in. That’s also when she became even more aware of him. 

I love the idea of Madi reading Flint as easily as Miranda once did. Noticing the little cracks in his armor and peeking through, catching glimpses of the gentle man behind it. She is far more perceptive than Silver is, far more tuned into other people’s emotional state, so I can’t imagine she missed Flint’s soft and loving nature once she learned where to look. Remember early on she caught him kneeling on the floor, holding a broken teacup in his hand, lost in his thoughts… who does that?! When he stood by her even though she blatantly mistrusted him, sided with her against his allies in support of her people.. When she quoted Don Quixote to him and momentarily broke him.. All the times he showed her nothing but utter respect and praise… It’s little moments like that that make their relationship so interesting and sweet. Those moments make me believe they connected on a deep, emotional level. Not to mention on a nerd level. 

And what’s more important, after giving him her trust and respect, she remained her rational self. She’s not fooled or bewitched by him, she’s not blindly following, and that’s what Billy and Silver got wrong about her. She’s perhaps the strongest of them all and one with her vision clear and intact.


Dear fellow white women: we have a bad habit of self destruction. We have to stop aligning ourselves with white men. We are not ‘one of the guys’ socially or politically. They have and will actively try to ruin our lives. They only care about us when… …it suits them.

And our alliance with them HURTS NON-WHITE women. This is key! Women of color lead the way. They know how to fight. If you don’t care about non-white women, first fuck you. Second you are just hurting yourself. I’m ashamed most white women went for Trump but that’s only our most recent act of violence. White women: get your fucking shit together.

If you’re a white woman uncomfortable with this kind of call-out, check yourself. We don’t require acknowledgment of basic human decency. There’s a reason WOC mistrust us. If you don’t like it, BE BETTER. And they’ve been telling us this for years. But if you won’t listen … … to them, first fuck you, second listen to me, then: WOC mistrust of WW is founded. We need to get sorted.

I’m not going to tell Trump voters to unfollow me because I want this kind of post on your timeline. Wake up.

12 Things Happy People do Differently

Happy people value and choose:

1. Love over Fear: People, who are truly happy, are less fearful and more loving. They perceive every moment, every challenge, and every person as an opportunity to learn more about themselves and the world.

2. Acceptance over Resistance: Happy people know that you can’t really change things by denying and resisting them. So when bad things happen, they don’t fight, get angry and complain. Instead, they ask themselves questions like: What can I learn from this? How can I make this better?

3. Forgiveness over Unforgiveness: Truly happy individuals understand that it’s destructive to hold on to feelings of anger. Instead, they choose to forgive and let go, understanding that (in the end) forgiveness is a gift they give themselves.

4. Trust over Mistrust: They trust themselves … and they have learned to figure out the trustworthy people – and those they should avoid.

5. Meaning over Ambition: Happy people do the things they do because it adds meaning and purpose to their lives. They’re not driven by the need to gain acceptance, praise and approval from others.

6. Challenges over Obstacles: Happy people see problems as challenges, and as opportunities to explore new ways of seeing and doing things. That is, challenges are something that help them to grow.

7. Selflessness over Selfishness: Happy people seek out ways ways to give to others - of themselves, their time, of their money, and their gifts. That is, they’re not self-focused and self-absorbed.

8. Kindness over Harshness: Happy people are gentle and kind with themselves and others. They know the importance and power of self-love, self-forgiveness and self-acceptance - and they freely love, forgive and accept other people, too.

9. Gratitude over Ingratitude: No matter where they are, or who they are with, happy people have the capacity to see beauty where others would only see ugliness – and they’re quick to express their gratitude, as well.

10. Being Present over Being Disengaged: Happy people know how to live in the moment, appreciating what they have and who they are with. They are not constantly being dragged down by the past, or distracted by what could happen (or go wrong) in the future.

11. Positivity over Negativity: Regardless of the circumstances of life, happy people are able to adopt and maintain a positive, and upbeat, attitude and perspective.

12. Taking Responsibility over Blaming: Happy people assume full ownership for their lives. They assume responsibility for their life, choices, decisions, actions, reactions, beliefs and attitudes.

**My Personal Correspondences

allura: keith, i hated you because the galra destroyed my planet. while i am regretful that i treated you that way, as you are my friend, i was not wrong to mistrust you for being galra.

keith: i understand. i shouldn’t have been so insistent on some galra being good, because, now that i look back, it was insensitive. however, i know that i was not wrong for saying that i’m not evil. 

keith and allura: [accept each other and resolve the conflict in a respectful way]

I have to say that I very much enjoyed ‘Running With Scissors’, I loved seeing Marco become a magical badass, as well as his relationship with Hekapoo changing over the years from one of disapproval and mistrust into one of respect and mutual admiration.

Dear god do I ship it. I really wanted to get something out of them before the next episode, I think I scraped in!

Mr. Parrish has a crush

for @mistrusts

“Is something the matter Darcy?” Adam asked, as the young redhead sprang her head from it’s position on her crossed arms.

“Oh.” Darcy whispered, her pale cheeks reddening significantly. “It’s nothing really, I have a test next period. ”

Darcy continued to shift uncomfortably in her seat. Adam had grown close to most students in his advisory, but had halted in making any sort of connection with the freshman. She had often opted to use the fifteen minutes of free time perusing through the mountain of unorganized notes that had only seemed to flourish since the beginning of the year. It was a small thing, but Adam had always taken a quiet pride in his status among the students and the itching awareness that he saw a little too much of his young self in the girl prevented from letting it slide.

“I see.” Adam said, drawing another ungraded lab packet closer. “Stressed out, huh?”

At this, the girl perked up considerably. “Oh no, I’m not stressed,” Adam peeked around the corner of his laptop as her anxious tone shifted to one of excitement. “It’s Mr. Lynch’s class.”

mbti as magical creatures from harry potter

quotes from fantastic beasts and where to find them (the book)

infj: augurey

the augurey has a distinctive low and throbbing cry, which was once believed to foretell death. wizards avoided augurey nests for fear of hearing that heart-rending sound, and more than one wizard is believed to have suffered a heart attack on passing a thicket and hearing an unseen augurey wail.

entj: basilisk

the basilisk is a brilliant green serpent that may reach up to fifty feet in length. the male has a scarlet plume upon its head. it has exceptionally venomous fangs but its most dangerous means of attack is the gaze of its large yellow eyes. anyone looking directly into these will suffer instant death.

intj: centaur

the ways of the centaur are shrouded in mystery. they are generally speaking as mistrustful of wizards as they are of muggles and indeed seem to make little differentiation between us. they five in herds ranging in size from ten to fifty members. they are reputed to be well-versed in magical healing, divination, archery, and astronomy.

enfp: crup

the crup originated in the southeast of england. it closely resembles a jack russell terrier, except for the forked tail. the crup is almost certainly a wizard-created dog, as it is intensely loyal to wizards and ferocious towards muggles. it is a great scavenger

estj: erkling

the erkling is an elfish creature which originated in the black forest in germany. it is larger than a gnome (three feet high on average), with a pointed face and a high-pitched cackle that is particularly entrancing to children, whom it will attempt to lure away from their guardians and eat.

infp: erumpent

the erumpent will not attack unless sorely provoked, but should it charge, the results are usually catastrophic. the erumpent’s horn can pierce everything from skin to metal, and contains a deadly fluid which will cause whatever is injected with it to explode.

istp: griffin

like sphinxes, griffins are often employed by wizards to guard treasure. though griffins are fierce, a handful of skilled wizards have been known to befriend one.

esfp: fwooper

the fwooper has long been a provider of fancy quills and also lays brilliantly patterned eggs. though at first enjoyable, fwooper song will eventually drive the listener to insanity

entp: imp

it does, however, have a similar slapstick sense of humour. its preferred terrain is damp and marshy, and it is often found near river banks, where it will amuse itself by pushing and tripping the unwary.

estp: jarvy

it resembles an overgrown ferret in most respects, except for the fact that it can talk. true conversation, however, is beyond the wit of the jarvey, which tends to confine itself to short (and often rude) phrases in an almost constant stream.

isfj: kneazle

a small catlike creature with flecked, speckled, or spotted fur, outsize ears, and a tail like a lion’s, the kneazle is intelligent, independent, and occasionally aggressive, though if it takes a liking to a witch or wizard, it makes an excellent pet. the kneazle has an uncanny ability to detect unsavoury or suspicious characters and can be relied upon to guide its owner safely home if they are lost.

istj: knarl

the knarl is usually mistaken for a hedgehog by muggles. the two species are indeed indistinguishable except for one important behavioural difference: if food is left out in the garden for a hedgehog, it will accept and enjoy the gift; if food is offered to a knarl, on the other hand, it will assume that the householder is attempting to lure it into a trap and will savage that householder’s garden plants or garden ornaments.

isfp: niffler

fluffy, black, and long-snouted, this burrowing creature has a predilection for anything glittery. though the niffler is gentle and even affectionate, it can be destructive to belongings and should never be kept in a house.

enfj: merpeople

those wizards who have mastered the language of mermish speak of highly organised communities varying in size according to habitat, and some have elaborately constructed dwellings.

intp: runespoor

each of the runespoor’s heads serves a different purpose. the left head (as seen by the wizard facing the runespoor) is the planner. it decides where the runespoor is to go and what it is to do next. the middle head is the dreamer (runespoors may remain stationary for days at a time, lost in glorious visions and imaginings). the right head is the critic and will evaluate the efforts of the left and middle heads with a continual irritable hissing. the right head’s fangs are extremely venomous. the runespoor rarely reaches a great age, as the heads tend to attack each other. it is common to see a runespoor with the right head missing, the other two heads having banded together to bite it off.

esfj: jobberknoll

it makes no sound until the moment of its death, at which point it lets out a long scream made up of every sound it has ever heard, regurgitated backwards.
