more like not running away

anonymous asked:

I dont feel super comfy giving out my city but ill do general area. So what do you think the Central Valley of California would have for starters?

That’s totally okay!

Grass: Turtwig

I believe that because the central valley is relatively flat, Turtwig would be quite well adapted to the environment as he obviously doesn’t have that great of a climbing ability. The environment also allows him to become gradually slower while his tree grows.

Fire: Torchic

With so many small bushes and grasses to hide in, Torchic is very well adapted to the environment of the central valley. Torchic doesn’t exactly have wings, but that’s okay. Because of his big feet, Torchic is more likely to try and run away from an opponent than fly away, but this make sense when you consider the lack of trees in central valley because of all the farmland. I imagine this PokéMon may even burrow underground!

Water: Squirtle

Although I’ve already included a shelled reptile, I feel like Squirtle would be the best water-type starter because out of all of the water-type starters available, Squirtle is the least dependant on a major water body. What I mean is, because of all of the farm land, the water type must be one that is at least fairly mobile on land, and is not amphibious like Mudkip or Froakie where the skin can easily dry.

Black and Latinx teens, on average, are more vulnerable to the type of abuse that provokes a teen to run away from home because they are more likely to live in high-risk environments. But prevailing narratives that these missing children are just runaways leads to less sympathy and media coverage for them when they are reported as missing.

Take the case of Relisha Rudd, an eight year old who went missing in D.C. in 2014. Her case was almost exclusively covered by The Washington Post, and a handful of local and black news outlets. Cable news did not loop the disappearance of Rudd like they did for the highly publicized cases of Natalee Holloway, Elizabeth Smart or Caylee Anthony.

Little mainstream media coverage is contingent upon the belief that black and brown girls are less valuable, says Hillary Potter, a professor of ethnic studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. And she adds the lack of coverage has another dangerous effect: It can perpetuate the idea that black and brown girls aren’t victimized.

“Colonel Baird. Where’s Mr. Carsen?”

SO TODAY AT SCHOOL-

THE BEST THING HAPPENED TO ME HAPPENED TODAY AND I’M STILL SCREAMING-

So I was in algebra and it was the end of class, so I asked my teacher how his weekend was. He said it was great and asked me how was mine, to which I responded with, “I binge-watched my favorite show. I watched like two seasons.”

“Which show?”

I got really nervous because I’m worried about people knowing I watch it and kept darting around it. Eventually I just thought ‘Screw it’ and just said-

“Ah it was a Lego show…”

AND GUYS LEMME TELL YOU HIS EYES WIDENED AND HE FROZE UP AS HE ASKED ME, “Is it NINJAGO?”

AND MY HEART WANTED TO DIE HE KNEW HE WATCHES IT- I SAID YEAH AND HE SAID “NINJAGO’S AWESOME!!! I watch it with my kid all the time- He loves it!!!”

HE THEN STARTED TO NAME OFF THE CHARACTERS AND THIS OTHER STUFF ABOUT THE SHOW AND SAYS HE WANTS TO SHOW HIS KID NEXO KNIGHTS SINCE ITS ANOTHER LEGO SHOW AND HE THINKS HE’LL ENJOY IT AND I AGREED RIGHT AWAY THAT’S A GOOD ONE TOO-

AHHH I WANTED TO CRY MY TEACHERS KNOWS NINJAGO AND WATCHES IT- IM GONNA BUY THAT MAN A ZANE KEYCHAIN HE DESERVES IT I LOVE HIM SO MUCH.

BEST DAY EVER- My algebra teacher’s like 5'4, possibly nearing his late 30s, bald, very loud, talks really fast, and honestly is a bit scary since he can roast literally anyone he talks to but knowing that he watches it with his son makes me really happy.

Tater is a volunteer dog-walker for the Providence Humane Society.  He comes in like, “I run ten kilometres every day. Send dogs with me.”

His route loops back on itself so he can drop off the dogs who are Done halfway through his morning run, but the ones he loves best are the dogs who just bing off the walls, come in from ordinary walks as fresh as when they went out, the ones who see the shelter coming up on them a second time and look up at him like, “But human, can’t we run some more?” and make him turn away and add some more distance to his route.

how does one draw snow in SAI again…

“In his laugh, in his smile, in the way that he is filled with overflowing love for everyone around him. Thomas almost can’t take it when Philip unknowingly says something just as Alex would, the same amount of wonder and knowing in his voice that makes his breath catch in his throat.
But it’s when he’s so passionately angry about something that Thomas has to run away once more. Because he even talks like him, the same fire burning in his eyes, that refuses to be put out even in the darkest of times.
And it’s in those moments that he truly knows that Alexander isn’t coming back.
Because no matter how much he hopes, prays, longs for him to return, he made his choice long ago.

And it wasn’t Thomas.”

FUCK THIS BROKE ME MAN

For that AU with zuko as the avatar thing - what if instead of aang dying with the air nomads, its more like when he froze himself when running away, he was effectively dead (cause his life just Stops), and so the cycle just goes to the next avatar cause 'hey - this kid's heart Stopped so he's basically dead' and things continue otherwise as described but katara and sokka still find aang and then the main thing is 'whoops now we have two avatars? what do we do?'

yo….this is super interesting and i’m Emotional

Unpopular Opinion

Clay was the first one in her life to treat Peril like anything more then a monster to be feared and avoided.  He is the only one that’s ever made Peril feel like her presence was tolerated and even appreciated.  Of course she would be infatuated with him, this new source of good and confusing feelings in her life.  Her love for Clay is to be expected, but its also very obsessive and unhealthy.

I hope that once Peril meets a few more dragons (Like turtle) who tolerate her presence better then just running away or hissing at her, her dependance on his approval will lessen a bit and they will be able to be in a healthy, happy relationship, whether that relationship is just as friends or something more.

ONS 52

Am I the only one who is getting more and more annoyed that Yuu won’t run away with Mika? Like? I get it you made new friends but it’s also time to make Mika happy too? If he wants you to be a damsel that he could save then put on a fucking tiara and some killer heels and get to rehearsing your lines because he’s seen shit and done shit and maybe needs to get a break?

Maybe it’s the mothering trait of mine that needs to protect Mika but I just really want him to win for once and not worry about what Yuu wants him to say or do. Because the moment Mika saw Yuu’s disappointed face after getting into it with Narumi in Chapter 52, he immediately switched tactics and said that he was actually on edge when he actually truly believed in what he told Narumi about human greed leading to despair.

i just don’t want Mika to bottle up his feelings just so he can remain by Yuu’s side. I don’t want him to be forced into liking the Squad. If family bonds formed between Mika and the Squad I want it to be because he genuinely cares for them. 

Point is, I want Yuu to stop forcing things along (which is weird because he’s a fictional character–BUT I’M AN EMOTIONAL FANGIRL OKAY!?) and I want Mika to say what he wants to say and mean it without fear of losing Yuu in the process. Because that’s true family right there (not including the high probability that Mika and Yuu might have romantic feelings for one another). True family, be they chosen or blood related, will respect who you are and what you believe because they love you. They won’t push you if you say you don’t like their friends. My older sister is the person i would trust with my life and when I say I don’t like her friends or we have a difference of opinions, she’ll ask me why and will try to convince me otherwise. If i stay stubborn/true to my opinions, she’’l leave me be on the topic and not love me any less.

Maybe I’m putting way too much emotion behind these characters. It’s funny how fandoms do that to you, though.

lily i'm so trash. Here i was enjoying that 'jb taught the foreign members all the bad words' and then i saw Youngjae's fingers softly brushing his shoulder for like 0.5 second and now it's all i can see. This is the worst. Can someone tell me how to free myself from 2Jae PLS AND THANK YOU

Oh, my darling anon!

I absolutely understand where you’re coming from! Being 2jae trash is one of the most distracting things because everything is so subtle that you have to constantly be on the alert, and then once you find something, it’s so utterly distracting! But, in all fairness, this was a pretty adorable moment… x

I just love the way it almost seems like Youngjae’s smacking Jaebum for being a bad influence… but then his fingers linger just a moment too long for a teasing smack?? I also love how Youngjae seems to realize what he’s doing a moment too late, and then he gets self conscious like the skinship-shy little fluff that he is with Jaebum… CAN YOU TELL THAT I RELATE TO THIS BEING DISTRACTING??? Honestly, I haven’t even watched the whole episode yet, but I’m already so preoccupied by the 2jae and Markjin that I keep seeing from gifs and clips! It’s the curse of living the 2jae trash life, my darling! 

A life that I, unfortunately, cannot save you from, my darling! As I’ve tried to warn others before, shipping 2jae is a slippery slope that’s difficult to escape… I only hope that you at least avoid sinking to my level of trashiness for your own well being!

I mean, I can’t even just enjoy good JJP moments without my 2jae radar going off… and I love JJ Project’s marriage with all my heart!! But even though this mini interview was full of so many cute and adorable and valid JJP interactions… I couldn’t help getting caught up in the 2jae side of things!

Like when Jaebum gave Jinyoung that really proud pat on the back, and it’s really sweet and adorable… but then I see Youngjae noticing the gesture and his expression kind of tensing up?? And then Jackson seeing Jaebum being affectionate towards Jinyoung, and looking toward Youngjae?? Like he’s checking on him??? Maybe???

And then I’ll be trying to just appreciate Jaebum’s proud heart eyes while Jinyoung speaks, but I get all distracted by how awkward Youngjae looks as he snaps out of his blank stare following Jaebum’s back-pat, only to lean in and awkwardly lowkey imitate Jaebum’s gaze at Jinyoung.

AND THEN I CAN’T EVEN FOCUS ON ANYTHING ELSE AFTER THAT, because JJP do this really cute nod at each other, but I’m too distracted by the way Youngjae just looks away in the background with his expression falling, and then HE SNEAKS A LITTLE PEEK AT JAEBUM WHEN JJP TURN BACK FORWARD???? LIKE??? MY LIFE WOULD BE EASIER IF I WASN’T SEEING THIS!!!

And then Youngjae finally looks away from all the honestly really adorable JJP interactions with a kind of weird expression until Jackson catches his eye and then starts imitating the nod… that had seemed to throw Youngjae off in the first place?? Is Jackson seeing what I’m seeing???

… This is what I mean by sinking to my level. I can’t even watch a 1 minute video with interactions from another favorite ship without getting completely distracted by 2jae and losing the ability to see much else! I truly hope, for your sake and sanity, my dear, that you manage to avoid sinking this deep in the 2jae trash heap!

(But, then again… the little touch you noticed and Youngjae’s jealousy/preoccupation/WHATEVER in the mini interview are kind of a valid distractions… He’s so cute when he gets awkward over Jaebum!!)
