more than i could ever say

assbutt-of-the-readers  asked:

Okay so, I watched A Date With Markiplier today (I know, I know, I'm late) and I find it really interesting how in a Date With Markiplier, Dark claims to give you four choices. He says it’s more than he (Mark) ever gave us. BUT! That’s actually not true at all. Sure, he gives us four options but three lead to no where, they just show us how creepy Dark can be. There’s only one option that will lead to some kind of ending. But Mark always gave us two options that could lead to an ending -

- But Mark always gave us two options that could lead to an ending. To me, this shows how manipulative Dark really is. He claims to give us a choice, but there really isn’t one. He claims to care but he really just wants you to what he wants.


That’s probably the most terrifying thing honestly

i know a lotta times when people are like “___ has TWO HANDS!!!!” it gets annoying but when it comes to naruto and the idea of sasunarugaa i think it actually does fit and make a lot of sense?? naruto has a huge heart and endless love to give; sasuke and gaara wouldn’t lack anything. naruto is more than capable of loving both of them.

in an actual canonverse interpretation i don’t feel like it would be any stretch at all to imagine naruto and sasuke living together in konoha, and naruto making routine trips to visit gaara??? nothing ever stops naruto to begin with and besides, there are a number of ways you could imagine naruto having an actual need to have communication with suna to begin with?? especially if they’re putting a bigger emphasis on allying the nations???

basically what i’m saying is you wouldn’t have to alter that much at all to see a really realistic interpretation of sasunarugaa and that’s kind of why i love it so much

anonymous asked:

this is probably so weird to ask, but do you have any Feycien fanfic aus? (haha, sorry, I tended to ship them in ACOTAR rather than Feylin, bc they seemed more shippable - until of course Rhysand popped up)

have I written any for them, sadly, no, but @highfaelucien gave us a smutty Feycien calanmai because she’s a gift to the universe. Not sure about any others! I do wish this ship had more #content tho. as you say, it was the OBVIOUSLY better option until Rhys came along. i mean that scene where he’s dressed-down in his bedroom cleaning his knives???? as if Tamlin could ever hope to match that sex appeal

I love you so much. You've done so much for all of us and only deserve the best. I'm sorry you don't have that right now, but just know that we're all here for you, forever. We've got your back. You choose your own family, right? You can still have your parents and want the best from and for them, but you are far more important and fantastic than any reaction they could ever give you for anything. Never doubt that, you spectacular pumpkin spice you. Sending all of the DC universe hug gifs ❤️❤️

So you’re saying I’m a spectacular pumpkin spice. Cuz that’s… That’s what I’m getting.

What do you make of the argument that the movie Jaws caused people to have negative views of sharks?

I’m not sure. I’d be surprised if people weren’t scared of strange looking sea creatures with big pointy teeth before the movie came along. At the same time, though, if *all someone hears* about sharks is that one was the scary monster in a movie, I wouldn’t be surprised if that person thought of sharks as scary because it’s all they’ve ever heard.

If this is a roundabout way to try and push me into saying “bad ships” influence “impressionable young fans,” I don’t think it quite carries over. A shark is a unique enough thing that you might not hear about it often, such that one story could influence how you think of them pretty strongly. But relationships, sex, and love are common themes in fiction, so I’m pretty sure that unless someone is ridiculously sheltered, they’ll probably read more than one story before they ever fall in love, have a sexual relationship, etc.

Also, only a relatively small subset of humans encounter or study sharks closely enough to form nuanced opinions about their behavior. But many if not most humans have relationships, have sex, and/or fall in love. Which means that while an individual human might never bother to think about sharks except in the context of a scary movie, said human will probably do a lot of thinking about sex, relationships, and love and whether and how those things make sense for them and fit in their life.

1) Smile at strangers. Because the world is tough enough without holding back such a simple kindness.
And so what if they don’t smile back? A smile is a gift to both the giver and the receiver.

2) Exhale compliments like carbon dioxide. You’re carrying a mouth full of bandages if you’d only say something.

3) School is important. But not more important than your mental health.

4) Your goals are attainable. Everyone who ever did; first believed that they could. So believe. Every expert was once a novice. So practice.

5) Be honest.

6) Don’t take your friends for granted. Take them to the movies instead. Hold them tighter. Remember that it might be the last time.

7)Living is not about competing with everyone else. I know it feels like a race but the only record you need to beat is your own. Be better than you were yesterday.

8)Your success doesn’t mean another person’s failure. You won’t get happiness by taking it away from someone else.

9)You are worthy. You are good. You are loved. Don’t ever forget it. Write it down before breakfast. Sing it in the shower. Feel it in your bones like marrow; in your skin like pins and needles; in your heart like a first love.

10) The count down is silent but you’re still running out of time. Do the things you’ve been thinking about.

11) I know that fear of success can be even more paralysing than fear of failure. What if you achieve all your goals? What if your dreams really do come true? But you won’t find the answer by asking the question.

12) Things will not always work out how you hoped. Be flexible. When the hurricane comes remember that the tree that does not bend; will break.

13) Buy yourself flowers. You are all the reason you need.

14) Be kind to your body. Drink more water. Take a nap. Dance. Don’t just live; feel alive.

15) Applaud yourself. You did good. You’ll do better. The possibilities are endless.

16) Be patient. Most of the things that take time are worth waiting for.

17) You can change whenever you want to. This is your story. So turn to a fresh page. Write yourself over. Call it a plot twist. Don’t let anyone tell you how it ends.

Sometimes he struggled to fit in. He couldn’t switch off, couldn’t relax. He just struggled with people, I think. He was rude, yeah. Arrogant. Apparently lacking in anything resembling empathy. But I’d forgotten just how funny he could be. He was so charming. So…human. It’s bizarre because most people would say he was the most inhuman person they’d ever met. But he wasn’t. He was everything a good person should be. He’d just often say what he was thinking rather than lying to protect our feelings. Maybe we should all be more like that?

You taught me to be a strong Latina woman. To be bigger than the world was ever gonna give me permission to be. And I have. You taught me not just to exist because I’m worth so much more than that.

sortings are fun and house pride is fun but like the sorting system… is fake…and it was always intended to be fake

  • dumbledore literally says “sometimes i think we sort too soon”
  • the first encounter we ever have with the sorting process involves the main protagonist rejecting the house the hat suggests to him so like…it’s clear right from the beginning that this whole sorting business is not supposed to be taken too seriously
  • and then when harry begins to doubt his decision dumbledore reinforces this by saying that our choices define us far more than our abilities
  • the other wizarding schools don’t have a sorting system
  • the three main characters are not model gryffindors and could be sorted into slytherin (harry) hufflepuff (ron) and ravenclaw (hermione)
  • sirius boasts about how his gryffindor sorting truly sets him apart from his slytherin family, but then we find out that regulus sacrificed his life to bring down voldemort
  • peter pettigrew is the most classic, stereotypical example of a coward
  • percy weasley is both highly ambitious and brilliant, but still a gryffindor
  • harry takes pride in being a gryffindor because dumbledore was a gryffindor, but we realize that dumbledore died because he couldn’t resist using the resurrection stone
  • the head of gryffindor house (mcgonagall) and the head of ravenclaw house (flitwick) were both hatstalls and could have just as easily been reversed
  • i think the epilogue is just as dumb as the next guy but it’s still pretty damn significant that one of harry potter’s last lines in the harry potter series is saying that a slytherin was the bravest man he ever knew (even if i completely disagree with harry’s assessment of snape lol)
  • the entire book series shits on slytherins and it even says none of them stayed to fight the final battle, but narcissa malfoy is still the one that saves harry’s life.
We were inside the train car when I started to cry. You were crying too,
           smiling and crying in a way that made me
even more hysterical. You said I could have anything I wanted, but I
                                                                       just couldn’t say it out loud.
Actually, you said Love, for you,
                 is larger than the usual romantic love. It’s like a religion. It’s
                                                                                 terrifying. No one
                                                                  will ever want to sleep with you.

I grew up with “girl power” being the Spice Girls. So I thought “girl power” was the coolest thing ever. There were five different girls and they could wear whatever they wanted and they could do high kicks in their music videos. I think “girl power” is potentially not the right way to talk about it, because I think it sounds somewhat superficial. But the meaning behind it, girl empowerment, is all right. To me it’s so much more than what “girl power” says. But to be part of this huge, worldwide movement of equality and diversity is super exciting, regardless of what it’s named. I also think it doesn’t really matter what it’s called, it’s the force behind it, and what well-intentioned people are doing.

Feels right to be back in some cold weather ❄️I feel more at peace sitting here listening to the morning than I ever have before. The only tiny slice of encouragement I could say is point your compass toward wholeheartedness.

I remember when we decided it was best to part ways, you told me that you don’t know how you could ever move on. It was you that told me that this was a mistake, that I was wrong.

You told me that you were happy, that my sadness wasn’t a burden. But when you told me you loved me it sounded more like throwing a floating device to a drowning child than it did a vow of forever.

I smiled, I kissed you and I walked away. Walking away from the best thing that has ever happened to me was the hardest thing I have ever done. I have ripped open my own skin, I have stolen the nutrients from my own stomach, I have isolated myself and I have tried to find answers at the bottom of bottles and empty pill packets. What I’m saying is I am no stranger to self inflicted pain, some could argue I am an expert in punishing myself for existing. 

But walking away from you was the most pain I have ever exposed myself to. Walking away from light at the end of the tunnel, and back into the darkness was like handing an addict the bottle. 

I think that you mistook my sacrifice for you as a punishment. But it was like setting the lion that has only ever known captivity free to roam. In the beginning he may miss the boundaries and the safety, but that is just Stockholm Syndrome and the more grass he feels beneath his feet the further he will want to run.

I check up on you, and I think you have found the ability to run. You are thriving, and she makes you so happy. I am not saying that I didn’t make you happy. But I’m admitting that you were too scared not to be happy around me, almost as if you showed sadness that you feared that you would never get that ‘good morning’ text off me. Like if you reminded me what sadness looks like that it would consume me when the sun went down and I would never see the sun rise again.

—  Loving me was too much pressure for a young boy who loves life. I am happy that you can love her fearlessly, I am glad you can be sad with her, I am glad that you can fight with her and go to sleep peacefully knowing you will be able to sort it out in the morning.
I’m sorry for all 
the times I held
 you far longer than 
i should, too often
than necessary. 
I’m sorry for all
the times when 
all I could ever say 
is I miss you. 
I miss you, every time 
you leave. I miss you even more
 when you’re
 with me.
 You see, 
I have a heart 
that never really
 learned how to
let go. A heart that
 always held on 
too tightly-
too scared that
 good things couldn’t
 happen twice.
 And you were,
 you are 
the best thing
that’s ever happened
 to me.
 And I’m sorry, 
I just couldn’t,
 I just couldn’t risk 
losing you, 
I couldn’t bear 
losing you 
knowing I can never
really have you back.

Both A Little Scared

It is so painfully obvious that Regina Mills and Emma Swan secretly have feelings for each other. I truly don’t understand how others can’t see it. Just look at their faces… their expressions say more than any words ever could. It’s like they both have this pained longing in their eyes. They both need each other but both afraid for different reasons. This entire show is about The Savior and The Mayor and even in every alternate universe they find each other. It’s always about them. If Swan Queen isn’t the story being told then what a heartbreaking waste of a beautiful opportunity.
