my life goal is to be as amazing and badass as she is

a friendly reminder that no matter how many bad books we read there’ll always be soc a.k.a the true masterpiece of our time which is like a safe blanket for murder babies and you can throw it over your head and pretend you’re on your way to a big heist or smth equally dangerous (but exciting) :’) and while you’re dreaming of $$$kruge$$$ you might also wanna remember that soc has:

- a bi poc character who didn’t dance around the term hgtawm style and pull some lame explanation out of his ass ala ‘it’s complicated’ but he actually said ‘not just girls’ so yeah confirmed bi poc who’s a KNOWN flirt and everybody praises him for it instead of mocking/shunning him honestly what did we do to deserve jesper fahey
- a disabled gang leader who’s literally thE BADDEST BARREL BOSS TO EVER WALK THE STREETS OF KETTERDAM caw caw bitches (he also has severe ptsd, panic attacks, suffers from traumatic flashbacks and experiences nausea and all kinds of ptsd symptoms everytime he (even accidentally) touches someone but does that limit or stop him in any way?? HELL NO MOFOS here comes kaz brekker with his crow cane and he’s about to whoop some ass better beware)
- a beautiful, amazing, talented, showstopping, spectacular, never the same woc who is basically?? everyone’s treasure, heart, love, most cherished person ever, role model, etc. etc. and it’s only right tbh inej ghafa owns my entire heart and i’d gladly give it to her over and over again if that would make her smile. she’s been sold into slavery (mentions/hints of prostitution which only adds to her bravery and strength thank you very much) when she was 14 but she managed to leave the past behind her and remain INCREDIBLY kind and humble despite all the shit she’s been through?? there is no character i adore, respect and love more than inej (okay maybe there is and inej calls her sankta alina b y e)
- a CANONICALLY. FAT. FEMALE CHARACTER WHO’S JUST!!! AMAZING. BREATHTAKING. HEART-STOPPING (literally). a true inspiration to us all who was also held captive when she was younger, trained by the mighty (goddess on earth) zoya nazyalensky, held captive again - this time by a gross ass, fanatic ass fjerdan nazi soldier/leader and lemme tell you she didn’t even lose her appetite. BOI she wasn’t even fazed. she couldn’t find a single fuck to give & she was determined to move on but she was plagued by guilt so she came back to save/help the boy who helped HER so she’s not just a pretty face and she’s so?? badass and smart and funny and fierce and she’s so fucking PROUD of every roll and curve on her body i could actually cry?? nina zenik, an actual muse for young girls/readers. nina zenik, life & wife goals
- a smol (very smol but also kind of a sinnamon roll tbqh? he aspires to be one anyway) angelic boy who comes from a TERRIBLY abusive home bc his father is an actual piece of shit and humiliated him all his life bc wylan couldn’t read. well guess what joke’s on van eck senior bc my boy, my CANONICALLY GAY SON, is smarter than him and his entire sorry lot and he’s gonna take over the world one day, you just wait. also just wants to make things go boom boom POW (usually regarding explosives but also applies to jesper a.k.a THE MOST PERFECT, CARING, WONDERFUL BF EVER)
- a big yellow tulip also known as matthias helvar. so matthias is that boy who helped nina escape the clutches of his scary boss and he’s the actual literal embodiment of the grumpy cat. but!!! he undergoes the biggest character development of all imo bc he manages to change for the better (bit by bit, brick by brick) and let me tell you that’s COMMENDABLE. like listen this is a young man who’s been brainwashed into hating everything nina & the rest of kaz’s merry band of misfits stand for. he’s been taught nothing but hate hate and more hate and he manages to turn his back on those prejudices and he opened up so much and we got to see so much more of him in ck and we learned that he’s super kind and sweet and giving, and he’s so pure and wonderful and amazing. he also loves nina zenik A LOT which is smth i can get behind and relate to 100000%
- last but not least kuwei, who’s not ~an official~ member of kaz’s vip club (pity pity pity) but. he’s a gay poc (asian!!! the same as tamar&tolya from tgt so please don’t whitewash him, it’s unacceptable) who’s sassy but kind of laid back at the same time and his favourite pastime is to just chill in the back and pretend he’s not listening/doesn’t know the lingo but guess what?? boy is like an international spy bc he understands more than he lets on. he also lost his father (which kind of turned him into a living prize bc everybody wanted him for his knowledge & chemistry skills, like he could probably cook up a deadly virus in three minutes if he was feeling inspired that day - which never happened but still. it’s good to have options) and yet never complained about anything and he just let that drama unroll like 👀👂 I HATE DRAMA 🎧🔍📝 overall deserved better

What to read after Throne of Glass

If you, like me, are still going through complete Sarah J Maas withdrawal, and can’t really stand to wait for her next books, check out the list below to tide you over! Each book has many of the things I adored about both ToG and ACOMAF: strong and interesting female characters, magic, deeply beautiful writing, love stories to cry about, and an all around sense of adventure. If you have any more recommendations to add, definitely let me know!

Black Jewels: Anne Bishop

I just finished this series, and I am still amazed by how masterfully Anne Bishop weaves her stories. Welcome to the Dark Kingdom, a matriarchal realm ruled by strong queens and the males that support and serve them (Rowan and Aedion anyone?). There is a prophecy fortelling the rise of a Queen with more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself, which gives us a wonderful story full of scheming, war, adventure, and a badass court I would kill to be a part of. Prepare your heart!

Graceling by Kristian Cashore

Graceling is the best series for all you folks who couldn’t get enough of badass assassin Celaena. Katsa is an assassin Celaena would be proud of, due to her rare ability as a Graceling. She is Graced with a killing power, and has spent her life as the king’s tool in doling out his reign of terror. In waltzes Po, Graced with fighting, and here to shake everything Katsa knows about her world. Cashore definitely gives us a twist Sarah would most certainly support!

The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

This book aligns more with the romance and court mystique that Sarah presents so wonderfully in ToG and ACOMAF. Kestrel is the daughter of a general who helped the emperor conquer territory after territory. As she is faced with a choice, marry or join the military, Kestrel finds a friend in one of the slaves from the conquered people, and so begins one of the most interesting political schemes I have read in awhile! I haven’t finished the trilogy yet, because I am out of the country and can’t get my hands on the final book, but I would highly recommend it.

Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson

Cue another really cool empire written by an author who isn’t afraid to be inventive or go beyond the normal realms of fantasy. Vin is another Celaena-esque character, as the abandoned street child who turned thief who struggles to stay alive. When a mentor takes her under his wing, she discovers that her luck on the streets might be more than she could ever explain. Magic, mystery, and of course, a few court balls thrown in make for a wonderful mix. Warning: the last book made me cry. Like really cry. But in a good, I’m-still-mad-at-you-but-I-understand-and-respect-your-story-line type of way.

Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima

Raisa is everything that I have ever wanted in a princess. She is intelligent, passionate, feisty, and super compassionate. So when a war arises between the clans and the wizards, you can bet she has goals to achieve and empires to shake up. Throw Han Alister into the mix, a street wise leader, and things get tricky and fireworks explode. One of my favorite love stories in a long time, because it isn’t a story about just romantic love, but also what the love of a princess for her country can do. 

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

Yelena is set for execution for murder, but is given the choice to be the next food taster of the Commander of Ixia. As if the threat of having poison in her system wasn’t enough, she is also given a dose of Butterfly’s Dust, which she needs every day to stay alive, and can of course only get from the chief of security. Fighting for her life soon becomes more than just guessing the right poison, but also a game of magic, love, and all out war. Best kind of combo out there!

Legend by Marie Lu

This is the only book in the list to be set in a dystopian universe as opposed to a kingdom, but with a prodigy like June, no one can make any complaints. After a war tore the country apart, the Western United States is under the martial rule of the Republic, and June is their perfectly groomed soldier golden child. Day, on the other hand, is a slums boy who has become the Republic’s most wanted criminal. What happens when their paths cross is enough to make any country tremble, and to keep me hanging on to every word!

And finally:

Literally anything by Tamora Pierce!

Tamora Pierce has been my favorite author since I was a little girl. Each of her series is set in the same universe, based around the story of an interesting and kickass female character, from the first female warrior to a wild-mage. I first found these stories when my mother decided my sister and I didn’t have enough strong women in our literature and Tamora really rose to the occasion. Start with the first series, Song of the Lioness, and work your way from there! I have reread her books at least once every year since I was a little girl and they get better every time. I cannot recommend these books enough!


If you read or have read any of these books, feel free to shoot me a message; I am always ready to geek out over them. 

Thoughts on Episode 3: Body Double

I think Cheryl knows more than she’s letting on. Maybe not the whole story, but I’m sure she does know something. At the begininng of the episode, I thought Jason might have left to run away with Polly. However, I’m not sure after the events of the episode. 

Let’s talk about Veronica’s date. When she mentioned having a date, I got so freaking happy because I thought Beronica was going to be canon…but unfortunately not. Anyway, Veronica seemed to be having fun on the date and Chuck seemed like an okay guy. I was looking forward to a not-fucked-up relationship on the show. As you might now, that didn’t end up happening. 

VERONICA! IS! A! GODDESS!

Veronica Lodge is a badass and so is Betty Cooper and so is Ethel and so is every other girl who came forward to talk about what happened to them. Veronica marching into the boys’ locker room, physically pushing everyone in her path to the side was the best damn thing, okay? 

I am so incredibly glad that Riverdale spoke about the slut-shaming issue. I love Betty speaking for all of us, when she says that in the eyes of men, we are still objects and how we need to change that. 

Veronica Lodge+Betty Cooper+Cheryl Blossom=Squad goals.

“Where did you get those thigh-high boots? They’re amazing!” Kevin Keller sort of redeems himself, after all the biphobia (lmao not really) 

Cheryl seemed genuinely surprised that Jason wrote about Polly but idk, that seemed pretty obvious to me. Poor Cheryl tho. There’s so much she didn’t know about him and yet she loves him so.

JOSIE IS MY LITERAL QUEEN okay? I love Riverdale for bringing out the issues in today’s society. I do want to speak out more about Josie but I literally can’t find the right words and I also don’t really want white people to send me hate messages and death threats. 

Josie and The Pussycats are my favourite band of 2017. 

I think Betty might be suffering from Mutlitple Personality Disorder. I don’t know too much about it and how it works, only what I’ve seen from movies but I think, Betty’s life is harder than what we see. There’s the constant pressure her mother puts on her, the issue of her sister and everything that’s been going on at Riverdale. I think there are too many sides to Betty and she’s struggling to cope and I think we’ll see more of this as the show progresses. 

Ms. Grundy can go die in a hole. Please kill her off. She is compltely disgusting. And she keeps talking down to Archie like bitch, you’re a fucking pedophile. If he tells, you’re gonna lose everything. Keep your god damn mouth shut. 

Jughead is seen eating this episode! Yay! They aren’t burgers but he’s still eating! I feel like there wasn’t enough Jughead in this episode but then again, I always need more Jughead so,

Jughead and Betty are my current favourite Brotp. 

Chuck and his dick-gang got suspended YES!!! Also, that scene where the girls are all standing together, so beautiful and powerful!! Amazing!!! 

I loved the Betty and Cheryl scene at the end. 

ALSO BETTY AND VERONICA HAVE TO BE CANON. “THEY ARE NOW B AND V AND MAYBE FOREVER.” YES, JUGHEAD, YOU TELL THEM. 

I want to see Jughead, Betty and Veronica being detective buddies next episode. 

This is my favourite episode so far. It was so good and I can’t wait for the next one!

anonymous asked:

whenever you have time/energy for it, could you talk about headcanons for if hera somehow got a physical body? no rush, just wanna know what you have to say on the matter

(not quite sure whether this is headcanons or a ficlet? or whether it’s at all what you had in mind? but boy, do I have Thoughts about AIs and their relationship to humanity and Hera in particular, and that comes through here.)

  • Hera’s first concern when they start talking about making her a body is that she wants to design it herself.
  • it isn’t that she doesn’t want a body. and it isn’t that she doesn’t want to be able to engage in the kind of comforting physical socializing all of her friends use their bodies for – she really, really wants to finally high five Eiffel, for one thing.
  • (he started leaving handprints on the Hephaestus’ monitors within a month of the day they met.)
  • but Hera knows what kind of shape they’d think of for her – not maliciously, she knows they love her, but it’s like the words they didn’t give her, the mind they did – they only ever conceptualize one shape, one kind of body, one way of being.
  • Hera doesn’t want a body so she can be more human, doesn’t want to be a pretty little android. she doesn’t want a body that proves that she’s just like all of them, because she’s not. Hera wants a body that makes her more Hera.
  • it does not need to move or look like anything human beings have referent for, although she pulls inspiration from everything from plants to animals to industrial engineering (anything she thinks seems cool, honestly; she confesses this to Eiffel but would never admit it to Minkowski, and she’s not lying when she tells Renee that she has a coherent functional and aesthetic goal. and she’s quite proud of it, in the end). Hera does not want a body so she can be a person (she knows she is already a person); Hera wants a body to do the things she can’t without one.
  • she is so hungry for experience, for seeing and feeling and doing – now that the station is no longer a part of her, now that so much of her mind and identity are not occupied with a million calculations and routines and consciousnesses keeping the Hephaestus running, now that she finally gets to decide for herself what she wants to do – she realizes she wants to do everything.
  • Hera’s body is built to house any sense they could think of, all that freed-up processing power devoted to every kind of experience - vision in spectrums beyond human comprehension, as many tactile sensors as they could cram in, temperature, electrical impulses, electromagnetic waves, even taste, of course taste, she has spent almost her entire life listening to her best friend describe food, like she would miss out on that entire slice of what the universe has to offer
  • and she thought space was full! she never understood how it could be called a void, called emptiness – but suddenly it makes sense why people would say that, because even with the limits of a human body, there is so much – this world is so much, every square inch of it, and just going fifty feet down a street is such a kaleidoscope of incredible things. it is awe-inspiring and disgusting and painful and amazing and beautiful and she is full of wonder at it.
  • (there is so much in this world that she is the first person ever to know. there are so many experiences so intrinsic to life here that no one thinks about them and that she is feeling and wondering at for the first time.)
  • people do not generally find it a comforting body. hera doesn’t care; she didn’t build it for them, and her friends don’t care, either, and that’s all that matters. she has an emotional body language of her own which Minkowski can read as easily as her own humanoid shoulder shrugs and eyerolls. Doug does not seem at all to mind sitting back in his apartment, propped up against her humming-warm metal side as he dozes in front of the TV, as long as she has all the right appendages to give him a hug.
  • (Lovelace will walk down the street next to her as naturally as though she was any ordinary human being in the world; and Hera’s senses can easily read the tenseness, like coiled springs, in her step as she does. but she also knows there is nothing defensive there, only a fierce pride, now, in both of them, for knowing and deciding who and what they are. daring the world to try and tell them differently. Hera and Lovelace understand each other really well these days.)
  • and it’s nice, she finds, nicer than she expected, to be able to stretch limbs and feel the brush of textures and the weight of physicality and think this is mine. this is me. it is something she could never feel with the Hephaestus, which was always neither her body nor something she simply piloted, but frustratingly in between. there’s comfort in this clearer delineation of what is and isn’t Hera, in her own right to decide what shape that space takes.
  • hands, she tells them, are very useful for doing all kinds of things, as humans prove, and were an obvious choice to include in her design.
  • (they’re good for high fives, too.)

Marriage: What the Fuck Does It Mean and How the Hell Will I Know If I'm Ready?

We’ve gotten a lot of questions lately about marriage and since The Sudden Adult and I have never been married (to each other or otherwise), I reached out to my good friend, The Northwest Adult, and asked her to write a post for me. So here is our first guest post! This is so exciting. Everything behind the cut is written by The Northwest Adult.

Hi! I heard you are taking request. So here's mine!

Yennefer and Ciri’s relationship


Mother’s day is almost at our doorstep again this Sunday! And here I thought: why not share this rant about these 2 because afteral they are like mother and daughter to each other X3.

Warning big rant ahead! xD

I just wanted to share with you all my take and thoughts on Yennefer and the relationship she has with Ciri. I just realised I never expressed my thoughts yet on these two amazing characters that I have grown to love since last year.This rant of mine will contain my own opinion ofcourse and some slight speculations (I love to speculate about certain things) of how I see and think about that relationship, and what fascinates me so much about these two. I’ll share with you how I was first introduced to these to and my further take on them when I read the novels last summer. Also some slight spoilers may be involved from the novel Lady of the lake so if you haven’t read those yet please be aware (although I’ll try to keep it minimal). ps pardon for any English typos, as it isn’t my mother language ;)

Introduction in the game and my feels about it

I was first introduced to Yennefer and Ciri last year with the release of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. I was totally new to this whole universe + characters and I must admit it was allot to take in, as it was also very overwhelming at first. When I first saw Yennefer appear (in the trailer) and at the inn in white orchard, I instantly knew that she was a strong determined woman. Yennefer can sometimes come over as rather ‘harsh’ so to speak. But I also want to add that she also has some very good dammed reasons why she acts/thinks or does things ‘her’ way (as some of you might know). Nevertheless I already loved her personality from that moment (and ofcourse the history she shared with Geralt). I came to learn from Yennefer what the main goal was all about in this game: Finding Ciri. Throughout the game I found out that Ciri means allot to both Yennefer and Geralt. Because the player plays from Geralt’s POV I got the impression it mainly focused on their relationship (between Geralt and Ciri). But I felt like something was missing aswel, yes you can guess it maybe already: Yennefer. The only scenes were I felt there was some kind of deep relationship between Ciri and Yen (that I didn’t know of at that time) was the reunion at Kaer Morhen and the scene were Yennefer looks at both Geralt and Ciri having a bit of fun and last but not least the havoc they brought on Avallac’h’s laboratory. At these particular scenes I got to see the true Yennefer. And no not as the powerful badass strong sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg I first saw in the beginning of the game, but as a mother.

My conclusion of my game experience between their relationship was overal acceptable but not yet really satisfying. I knew the game mainly focused on Geralt and Ciri’s relationship because wel you the player is playing Geralt, and because of that see and act through him not Yennefer for instance. Still on some moments like ‘the battle of Kaer Morhen’ were Vesemir just died Yennefer stands right next to Ciri, and it looked to me like she was there ready to give comfort to her adoptive daughter. But as it turned out Ciri only embraces Geralt not Yennefer. Again like on the boat scene it felt like Yennefer was left out here, while I so felt there was ‘something more between them’ but it was helt back. As I read it the novel Time of contempt Ciri couldn’t choose between Geralt and Yennefer, instead she (fake) fainted. My point here is that Ciri would have never only hugged Geralt (as she did right in front of Yen) but would hug them both, together as one family. I am also of the opinion that Ciri is compared to the novels ver OOC in the game (but that’s not my focus point atm lol) because of that action she pulled off. Let’s not forget who found out about Ciri’s return in the first place, Yennefer ofcourse through the emperor. It was Yen who searched months for her, like she did in the swallow’s tower. And even after all this it felt quite empty, take for example the empress ending. Here Ciri says goodbye to Geralt but not to Yennefer and even says she prefer it she will no be involved this time! I mean I was like blown away for a moment and was left in a bit of a sudden shock. Yennefer was the one who first new about Ciri and did everything in her power to find her and contacted Geralt afterwards, and then suddenly that sentence of Ciri. Like she actually says in my understanding: Yeah thanks but no thanks for finding me towards Yennefer. I felt like the game wasn’t telling me everything there was, and that some relationship here was clearly put out of context.

I don’t want to sound all to negative of course about them (I mean their relationship shown there) in the game but yeah it did left me rather curious and so I picked up the novels (I seriously recommend them to anyone who hasn’t yet read them!)

Yennefer in the novels

Yennefer a powerful sorceress who as we all know didn’t exactly had a happy childhood in her early life. She was abused by her father, all because of the way she looked. More importantly here she missed the warmth and comfort of her mother, who also got hit allot by her own husband and was thus in my opinion afraid to stand up for her daughter. After all these events her own mother gave up on her and probably left her on the streets or abandoned her in a forest. She was found and taken under the wing by Tissaia de Vries. She was all alone at first, imagine being taken by a complete stranger just gives me shivers. Tissaia corrected her deformities and injuries her father gave, but for it she payed with everything she possessed (as can be read in the shard of ice story).

She was taught at Aretuza and probably also by Tissaia that sorceresses can’t love, that they must have a certain attitude towards the world and society. Tissaia de Vries was Yennefer’s role model and somekind of mother figure, and what does a child usually do who admires such a person? Yes she acts like her. That’s how Yennefer created that ‘mask’ of hers, to protect herself. She now could protect and stand up for herself. She was no longer a defenseless deformed child. Though she may seem strong and confident, there was always something missing in her life that she couldn’t conjure up through magic.

Yennefer had one big dream, to be a mother. But the question is why did she want to be a mother of all things? She was and is a freaking wealthy sorceress, who despite the irony could cure infertility by ‘normal’ human women(which is a rather expensive service from a sorceress as it was Yennefer’s specialty) and hence why she was so wealthy. But back to my opening question, why. On my take she wanted to become a mother because of one thing: love. Imagine Yennefer grew up basically with no love at all, she was denied that by her parents and even kinda by Tissaia. Tissaia who taught her that love was a weakness and that showing emotion (like crying) was pathetic in her eyes. Yennefer wanted a child she could give the love that she was denied. A child who could love her for the way she truly was and is. But as it is Yennefer who was a highly talented sorceress couldn’t have children, as Nenneke once said to Geralt: NEVER. And still despite this it first turned into an obsession for her, Yen was constantly looking for a way to cure it. I admire her determination in this, as she once said: “When I want something I don’t dream of it, I act and I always get what I want”. Allas she couldn’t conceive and still tries to until a moment she finally kind of tries to accept it, as we can read in Sword of destiny (I refer here to the feast at Belleteyn).

Another reason why I think she wanted a child is because she wanted to show and prove that she could indeed love someone. Do not forget that Yennefer just like Geralt never really knew what love meant. Love was like a stranger to them, something that was missing from both their lives.

Yennefer also says this allot in the beginning of the books: It is widely thought that I don’t posses such an organ (she refers here that she can’t love). A teacher of mine once said to me that when you say sentences with I CAN’T all the time you will start to believe you can’t do certain things, or the way you think about yourself (your self imagine). Yennefer probably heard or told this so many times to herself that she actually unwillingly started to believe such things. And thus acts sometimes rather harsh or cold while I know she doesn’t want to do that.

In the end some might say: ‘These are very selfish things’, and yes they may be right. As Philippa Eilhart once said: “Yennefer has always walked her own path”. But in the end everyone is kinda selfish is too in his or her own way (don’t deny it :P ). Yennefer isn’t a holy saint or a goddess or whatever, she is a powerful sorceress who wants to be in the end human. And the things she dreams of are very humane.

Ciri and Yennefer (their relationship development)

Ciri an exiled Princess of Cintra who like Yennefer was also born on Belleteyn (coincidence?). Like her she didn’t have a happy childhood and was robbed of her parents (Her father still lives tho). Though Ciri maybe have known love, the love of a mother was taken from her. The court of Cintra and queen Calanthe (Ciri’s grandmother) weren’t always so nice and cuddly like in some stereotypical fairytale. Ciri was brought up sternly and it was expected of her to wed asap (she was 6 back then if I remember correctly). And then the war broke loose, which took everything from Ciri.

Ciri a child destined for Geralt was taken in some years later to Kaer Morhen. Were it was discovered she was a source, indeed she could see the future of those closest to her. Geralt through Triss Merigold decided to contact Yennefer for help. It is to my believe that from this moment Ciri and Yennefer’s fate’s were intertwined with destiny. Ciri began dreaming about Yennefer even though she never met her.

And then they both meet each other at Ellander. Man that moment I just had shivers down my spine. Their meeting was wel, silently but also intense. Ciri was overthrown with envy for Yennefer (the way she looked ofcourse). And Yennefer who really was the stern sorceress with her famous mask on, not to show any weakness. Their bond grew so quickly in this still rather short time they spend together. This really hit the light when Ciri called Yennefer: Mama 3 times at that (while she just awoke from her trance). How must Yennefer have felt? Here a child calling out for her and asking comfort from, Yennefer of Vengerberg. Yennefer who never thought she could be loved, who always dreamed of being a mother. After this event as Ciri describes in Blood of Elves their bond only grew more. It is to my believe that Ciri taught Yennefer in a way that she indeed can love and care. Ciri melted that shard of ice that was her heart, and showed us (the readers) who Yennefer truly is. A mother (adoptive ofcourse) who would always protect her ugly duckling. A mother who taught her not only about magic but other matters aswel. Through Ciri we got to see that very loving side of Yennefer, that I have grown to love about her so much. The way how they interacted with each other and how Andrzej Sapkowksi wrote this just warmed my heart so much. I like to think that after these events (I pointed out a few now but I can’t describe them all) Yennefer found her true calling and purpose. To be there for Ciri and to stand by her side together with Geralt. And she did promise this to Ciri in Blood of Elves and in Time of contempt (feeeeeels man).

You know what I also found so heartwarming and tragic at the same time? The fact that Ciri and Yennefer grown to care so much for each other even tho they were not connected by blood. because once all said and done Yen isn’t Ciri’s biological mother. But she did fill in the empty void they both needed so much to fully grow. Yennefer her parents were cruel to her and yet those were bound by blood. My point is here that even if your not bound by blood it can still be just as strong.

I would also like to point out that Ciri’s relationship with Yennefer is even more stronger then what she has with Geralt. Ciri never called Geralt her father (in the novels that is, in the game it is sadly the other way around). Ciri even wants to be called later on in the novels ‘Cirilla of Vengerberg, daughter of Yennefer’. I mean this is saying something. Man how Yen must have felt x3.

It is kinda sad to see for me that most people (because of the game) mainly see Geralt and Ciri as really close with each other, and of course they care about one another deeply. But with Yennefer it is something more. A bond between a mother and a child (daughter) is in most cases, even in real life more stronger then that with a father.

I could go on and on and on about this very topic and maybe I will later on. But I think I ranted enough now for the time being. Thank you so much for reading this rant of mine (really I am not so known to be a ranting person). And please if you wanna share you thoughts or opinions on this topic about me please do so! I am really curious to know how other witcher fans feel about this :D

Top Moments of 2015, WoSo Edition

We all know what an amazing year it’s been for the USWNT and for women’s soccer in general. Here are some of my top moments of 2015, plus some honorable mentions (warning, it’s long)

ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2017

I think it’s time to show you guys my Anticipated Books of 2017. There are so many incredible books being released and I tried to narrow them down into a short-ish list.

I spent over an hour reading summaries and discovered books I didn’t know about. Hopefully you’ll be adding some of these to your Goodreads too.

I’ll be doing an Honourable Mentions and ARCs I Already Own at the end. These are books that definitely deserve excitement and ones I will be picking up in the New Year if I don’t already have an ARC. But I’m very lucky to have early copies of some of the books I want to read.

These are in no particular order. You can click on the titles to be taken to the Goodreads page for the full synopsis.

Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza

I saw this on someone else’s list. I can’t remember who it was but I’d seen it all over Twitter too and looked it up!

And, oh my god, it’s definitely my kind of book. It’s great for fans of The Lunar Chronicles which I am and the synopsis just sold it to me.

You’ve got the Empress, Crown Princess Rhiannon. A fugitive, Aly and a madman that Rhiannon and Aly have to band together to defeat. It seems like it’ll be such a great read and the cover is beautiful. Do you see that cover? It’s gorgeous.

Wires and Nerves Vol. 1 by Marissa Meyer & Douglas Holgate

I have been so, so excited for this since I read the Lunar Chronicles this year and found out about IKO GRAPHIC NOVELS! Hell yes, Iko going on badass missions.

I live for this girl and the comments she makes. And, I hope there’s appearances from the Rampion Crew in this or I’ll cry.

The art looks fantastic in this and I like the style of it. I can’t wait to hold the finished thing in my hands and to read the story Marissa has written for it.
I just need anything new on the TLC universe because I miss it everyday and I’m always ready for new content.

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

When you find out Renee Ahdieh is writing more kickass books, you can’t help but be excited for it.

It’s basically a Mulan-ish re-imagining and I am so down for that because it sounds EPIC!
There aren’t enough retellings or books inspired by Mulan and it’s one of my favourite films.

It’s diverse, intriguing and sounds brilliant. I loved Renee’s writing and I know she will tell this story brilliantly. I can’t wait to read it and I’m sure many people will have it on their lists.

Throne of Glass #6 by Sarah J Maas

(Let’s pretend the pre-cover thing is for the last book)

Ahh, I have such a love hate relationship with this series. It’s been such a rollercoaster and I’m kind of glad it’s coming to an end because I just need it to. It’s put me through so much and I’ll always love the beginning of the series since it gives me nostalgia of when I read it for the first time.

The end books are getting too much but after all these, I obviously need to see how it concludes because it’s about time. There’ll always be a place in my heart for Chaol and Dorian. I have loved them from the start. I want to see what happens now because after Empire of Storms a lot had to be done and I want it to be a smooth end. I’ll be so annoyed if things are rushed or there’s a cop out. Ugh, I need closure from this series.

I’m also going to throw in the CHAOL NOVELLA! in here. YES MY PRECIOUS BABY IS GETTING A NOVELLA! Which, I am beyond excited for. I need Sarah to do the book and Chaol justice for all the crap she’s put him through. She made Chaol hate himself and ugh, I want him to have some happiness. He’s lost just as much as everyone else. I’m forever Chaol trash.

Now I Rise by Kiersten White

I read AND I DARKEN and didn’t get a chance to review it but I LOVED IT.

The way Kiersten White represented Muslims was great around the time of the Ottoman Empire.

At first I felt uncomfortable about how Islam would be portrayed but she did it well and I enjoyed the story so much.

I love Lada and Radu so much. After being left in this new Empire under the Sultan’s rule, I loved seeing their character growth, how they were in this Islamic setting and dealt with a new religion they’re not used to and another way of life they’re unfamiliar with. I’m intrigued to see what Kiersten does now after the ending of the last book which left me in awe.

Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas

This was one of the books I found browsing through Goodreads and soon as I read the synopsis I was like ‘Woah, this sounds pretty damn amazing.’

The main character was never meant to be Queen. She was 23rd in line to the throne but after some deadly things happen, the King and others in line to the Throne are poisoned.

She then finds herself in power and her life is in danger, people are trying to control her possibly the only person she can trust is the King’s son. This book is my kind of fantasy that I would immerse myself in.

There’s also a book in my Honourable Mentions (below) that sounds quite similar to this so make sure to check that one too if you like the sound of this book.

External image

Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer

This is a Sleeping Beauty retelling and funnily enough, I haven’t read any Sleeping Beauty retellings even though there’s a few out there.

This one’s about two half sister’s, Isabelle and Aurora. Isabelle is quite headstrong and the King’s illegitimate daughter whereas Aurora is the opposite of her.

After some occurrence, Aurora falls into a long sleep so Isabella races against time to find a prince that can wake her with a kiss all the while an evil Faerie Queen is advancing. But Aurora is in this enchanting land in her sleep and meets this Hunter that could help her escape.

It just sounds phenomenal and such a brilliant set up. I am really looking forward to this just from the synopsis on Goodreads.

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas

I don’t think anyone is anticipating this book(!) 

I definitely can’t wait to see how this series concludes. Two of Sarah’s series are ending and I’m kind of apprehensive about it. In the past I’ve noticed how both series influence her writing and a lot of it it similar across both which she probably doesn’t realise.

But nevertheless, I’m ready for the final book and whatever the remaining ACOTAR books will be. I’m pretty sure they’ll be novellas or colouring books.

After that ending, the characters, AND RHYS! Oh Goodness, my small but amazing Rhys. Azriel is the one for me but I love the inner circle. Mor is actual goals.

A part of me knows that they’ll be put through a lot but Sarah definitely won’t have the heart to kill her favourites. That much I can guess.

Traitor To The Throne by Alwyn Hamilton

After the last book, I’ve been dying to know what happens. I just love books in an Eastern and desert setting. I enjoyed reading about Amani and the ending of Rebel of the Sands blew me away.

I wonder what will happen because Alwyn said she wrote some perilous scenes… *sweats nervously* I’m not prepared for Amani and Jin to be thrown into more danger.

It’s such a hyped book which I completely get. I definitely need a reread of Rebel because I’ve forgotten some details. There’s also been a US cover change but thankfully, the UK has a vibrant matching pink cover.

HONOURABLE MENTIONS

I’m definitely excited for these books and will pick them up some time in the New Year. I may or may not get them right away (I might not even get the above books right away), but they’re still new releases I need in my life and hope to read in 2017.

BY YOUR SIDE by Kasie West
THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas
STRANGE THE DREAMER by Laini Taylor
THE SCARECROW QUEEN by Melinda Salisbury
THIS PROMISE I WILL KEEP by Aisha Saeed
BECAUSE YOU LOVE TO HATE ME by Various Authors and Booktubers
DIVIDING EDEN by Joelle Charbonneau

ARCS I ALREADY OWN

I’m incredibly lucky to own these ARCs. The publisher’s kindly sent me these and I haven’t read them all yet but they’re making the list. If I didn’t already have these books on hand, they’d be on the list anyway.

CARAVAL by Stephanie Garber
HUNTED by Meagan Spooner
ROSEBLOOD by A.G Howard
THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE by Katherine Arden
HEARTLESS by Marissa Meyer (UK ARC - Out in 2017)

So that’s it for my list. We’ve got quite a few books here and I think it’ll be a fantastic year of new releases. I know I’m missing amazing books that I probably haven’t even heard of. I’m also going to be on the hunt for diverse and #ownvoices books. I’ve added two of them on this list. It’s hard to find or discern which are #ownvoices so I’ll be doing more research on that in my own time.

I might even make a separate Anticipated List just of diverse, own voices, LGBTQ, diverse author books. Let me know if I should do that. I’ve heard of a few but need to look into them before I compile a list. 

Or, if you know of a diverse/ownvoices book coming out in 2017, please reblog or message me about i!

Same for if you have any recommendations, please reblog them here or message me. I’d love suggestions or your thoughts on this post. Did you find a new book to add to your list or are we looking forward to the same books?

Thank you so much for reading! I hope everyone have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year.

anonymous asked:

Mind if I submit two characters? Ichigo Kurosaki and Edward Elric :)

You got it! And omg, this is going to be fun!~

ICHIGO KUROSAKI

(First impression) - Wow he has no chill, look at him go. And kicking people when I think they’re robbing me is my new meme. (I was in 5th grade when I started watching Bleach. I remember laughing a lot whenever he flipped his shit.)

(Impression now) - Grumpy ass idiot who doesn’t take two shits from anyone with a heart of gold. Set him off and watch gleefully as he creates chaos just by being himself, mwahaha.

(Favorite moment) - Whether how he met Rukia (that’ll never stop being a fond moment for me) or honestly the whole Invading Soul Society arc. That will never stop being epic and fantastic.

(Idea for a story) - I LITERALLY JUST WANT TO DUMP HIM IN ALL FANDOMS AND JUST BECOME A PATRON OF CHILDREN OKAY? THAT’S HIS JOB DESCRIPTION, YOU CAN’T CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE.

(Unpopular opinion) - I honestly don’t want him paired with anyone. At all. And if I ever did, it would be with Senna from Memories of Nobody cause I am convinced he was developing a crush on her the entire movie. Just, how he seemed almost struck dumb when she first appeared all badass is like an instant crush moment to me. And just, how quickly he grew attached to her, how mournful he was when she died is just, gah.

“I can still hear her voice.” ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

and the, “If there’s no world, you’ll be gone, too… I don’t want that.  I don’t want you to die instead of me!” Like are you serious. (slaps forehead)

Rukia as his BFF honestly fits better than a romantic relationship, and I cannot for the life of me see how he got paired off to Orihime. I mean, I can understand, but I’ll never be on board with that ship, sorry. Just not my cup of tea.

(Favorite relationship) - Rukia and Ichigo. The dynamics, the bickering, raising each other up when either one of them is sinking into despair. They’re stronger together and are independent beings who don’t use each other as crutches. Helping when they need to, yelling encouragements. This is my ideal friendship, okay? I just love the bond these two share, their quiet understanding that doesn’t have to be spoken. I really really love them.

(Favorite headcanon) - Ichigo and Isshin having an understanding. People seem to want to tear Isshin down or turn him bad, but I just don’t get it. Like, what if Ichigo asked Isshin in the first place to train him after Masaki’s death? Waking him up in the morning enthusiastically by literally attacking Ichigo and improving Ichigo’s reflexes. A measure of their days even, and it’s a part of their routine and Ichigo wears irritation like a protective cloak. Isshin didn’t really raise Ichigo, he’s too independent for that, but they agree that it’s for the better. Ichigo doesn’t like being chained and Isshin helps when Ichigo lets him, doesn’t force his way in and is a steady rock despite his flamboyant antics.

Or just, Ichigo cooking cause Isshin is hopeless at it, though he makes sure Ichigo doesn’t burn himself or slip off his stool. Isshin woks at the clinic, while Ichigo takes care of his sisters and takes them to school or sign up Karin for soccer. Coexisting with each other and doing chores until Yuzu decides she wants to help, eager to unload the workload. Karin grumbles but does the same, hiding her heart and way too similar to Ichigo, which he worries about. Just, Isshin and Ichigo being co-parents.

I really don’t like dissing characters or making them straight-out evil. Characterization that actually fits, understanding motivations and following that line of thought to make them human, not an obstacle or ‘the enemy’ mindset.


EDWARD ELRIC

(First impression) - His temper is ridiculous and he has an evil streak a mile wide. Sold.

(Impression now) - My role model. I’m actually quite serious. His philosophies and ability to forgive and sympathize with people including beings like the homunculi is astonishing and his determination to keep moving forward despite everything he’s faced and finding all life precious is inspiring. I was in a bad place in middle school, and very bitter about people in general. He gave me hope in the idea that people are worth fighting for, and despite the sinful nature of human beings, there’s a united goodness. That we can overcome our faults, work together, and stand proud. He taught me no matter how bad it looked now, it can get better, and that dying is easy. Life is precious, don’t throw it away.

(Favorite moment) - Without doubt, when he first met human Alphonse at the gate when crossing to get out of Gluttony’s stomach. That was the most incredible thing ever. Kicking down the gates and snarling out to Alphonse to wait for him, that he’ll be back. Fucking amazing.

(Idea for a story) - You do not know how much I would like to see Edward Elric entering in a parallel universe where he doesn’t exist. Alphonse does, and he DID NOT do human transmutation, which’ll cause a lot of grief to Edward cause it means if it weren’t for his pushing, things wouldn’t have happened the way it did, that it really was his fault. And just, creating chaos and taking down the homunculi and meeting Mustang. (Preferable if Edward is older, maybe in his 20′s. AND NO PAIRINGS, PLEASE NO.) I really just want straight up Edward kicking ass and taking names and confusing the hell out of everyone else.

(Unpopular opinion) - Can we just, I don’t know, not do pairing wars? I don’t know if this is unpopular or not. It seems everyone wants to pair Edward with Roy, or Roy with Riza. Like, I honestly just want respect for both pairings? I honestly do not give a crap at all, and actually prefer strict professional relationship with Riza and Roy, respect inbetween them with a history that will bond them together probably their entire lives. And Edward just travelling and bickering with Roy and NOT parental feels. He was his commanding officer, they’ve used each other and are aware of this. Just, being friends who don’t want to admit they’re friends? Seriously, just, no pairings. Nope. What’s wrong with lifelong friendships? Does there have to be a romance? Like, why?

(Favorite relationship) - Ling and Edward. They are the comedy duo and have the best broship to ever exist. I love these two idiots, okay? I really really like Ling’s character and how much it can contrast against Edward’s, yet they still respect and just get each other. They have their own goals, but help one another and start to care about each other’s business when they don’t have to.

(Favorite headcanon) - Edward visiting Ling all the time and horrifying the people of Xing with his crassness and general rudeness towards their emperor. And Ling breaking the hierarchy, NOT marrying multiple people. Ling supporting ALL FACTIONS, creating charities, sending ambassadors to Amestris. Basically, flipping the bird to bullshit traditions that honestly don’t make sense and after having Greed inhabit his soul, his greed has shifted more in the direction of people instead of riches? And Edward helps along, sitting around and complaining about how stupid old counselors are and why don’t you just fire them already? And Ling is just so happy and amused that someone talks back at him. Edward buried in books in the library, always muttering and taking notes and quickly learning the language, much to everyone’s shock.

(It’s Chinese. Do you have any fucking idea how many characters there are? Maybe Ling even creates a simplified version for the common people to learn, like how Koreans did in reality? Seriously, Korean is really really easy to learn and was created for the people. Before that, Koreans used the Chinese writing and it made it difficult for people to take positions and have jobs, only upper class who properly learnt Chinese writing. Rigged system from the start until the King realized this and literally created a whole alphabet just so lower classes can actually have an education.)

Anyway, just, Ling and Edward working together to create a better country that Ling can run, cause Edward just can’t stand how weird monarchy is. He has an urge to fix everything.

Your aesthetic: Pride flags, shy smiles, big hugs, warm blankets, messy floors, the feeling of fresh air during an Indian Summer.

@asktheboywhohadnochoice

Sparrow: Oh lawdy. You put up with so much of my crap when I am sleep deprived. I love listening to you talk about your passions and your Disney cosplays.

Zoe: My dear, Zoe. My first introduction to you was a lovely video of you defending the scary “Andy Fucking Gray”. I greatly admire your courage and I love your Rp’s. I knew from the moment that I “met” you, that I wanted to be your friend. You are wonderful and a completely talented RPer! To be honest, you are the reason that I am writing these little notes to everyone. You inspired ME to conquer the hate going around with love. I hope today is a better day, and that you feel that you can come to me if you ever need me to kick anyone’s ass. I love you, chica!

You bring this sort of… prescence that is just… calming. Like I feel that if we hung out in person, then you could give me The Look and I would instantly be like “You right, bruh. I’m chill.” Idk, man. I feel like we need to talk more.

Your aesthetic: Long hugs, loud laughter, sassy comments, flannel shirts, the feeling of the first snow of the year, the freedom of driving with the windows down.

We Aren’t Cool Because We Don’t Have A Squad Name Squad (First people I met)

TT: Dear lord, child. Sometimes it is honestly frightening how similar we are in some ways. But we are going to real talk for a moment because I need to share #feelings (gross). Where do I even begin? 

TT, you are one of the most familiar strangers that I have ever met. It’s like one moment I feel as though there is this person in front of me that I have known for decades, and then you hint at something new and I am totally thrown. You, my dear, are the best kind of mystery. Now I could go on and on about your merits as an artist and as an RPer, and honestly that would fill up a page, but I think I am going to take this time to say that I appreciate you as a human. 

Your sweet smiles and loud bursts of laughter, your mischievous glint that you get when you know you are going to RIP THE HEART OUT OF EVERYONE, your crazy hair, your calming tone when there needs to be peace instead of fight… all of it, love. All of it is golden and I value the friendship that you have offered and I hope that I can return it to you. 

Oh and sometimes you are so James Potter that it hurts XD

Your aesthetic: Dancing with friends, (not so) accidental troublemaking, Long conversations about everything in the universe, comfort found in snuggles, fuzzy socks, ink-stained fingers.

@asktheboywholived

Laina: Oh my dear, where to begin? You are such a beautiful person, inside and out. Sometimes I feel like you are the sun. You’re warm and inviting (and a hot hot starXD ) and the best thing about it all, is that it is totally genuine. 

You are also a total goofball! Your cosplays give me life and I especially love the random scoldings/encouragements that you give the group chat. If I ever need to smile, I know that I can talk to you and feel better instantly. 

There are certain people that the world needs more of, and Laina, you are one of them. I am so excited to meet you IRL! Thank you for your kindness and your friendship. It’s something that I will treasure.

Your aesthetic: Ribbons of all different colours, secret handshakes, crying because it’s just THAT funny, warm air rolling off the ocean, the feeling of spinning with your arms outspread.

Jes: OH DEAR LAWDY, here we go. Jes, you absolutely amazing creature. I can’t believe we have only known each other such a short period of time! 

Do you know that feeling that you get when you meet someone and realize that a piece of your soul is attached to theres? Like a weird mixture of play dough. Smooshed together to create a beautiful swirl of colour. Well, my dear that’s how I see you. 

You are a beautiful swirl of vibrant colour that surrounds my heart. 

You help bring colour into my Gray world and I will always love you for it. 

Your aesthetic: Home-cooked meals, nights spent cuddling and chatting, staring popcorn ceilings willing them to reveal their secrets, dancing in the rain, the feeling of sunshine on your shoulders, beautiful music.

@askdoratonks

Meli: I have had the wonderful privileged of your many confused conversations. Your genuine easy-going nature is something that is so refreshing, I wish I could emulate it. I have never met such a kind soul that also has enough snark to keep me on my toes. 

I envy your easy way of speaking to people and I feel like I have much to learn from what you could teach me. 

Your aesthetic: The smell of cloves, the buzz of a tattoo gun, the smile that lights up the face of a kid on Christmas, comfortable shoes, freckles on noses, Eskimo kisses.

@askanotherweasley

KP: It is so hard to write down what I feel. The ability to put it into words is escaping me, but I know that you understand. 

There are so many conversations that we have had that I would just love to put into a box and hide them away so that I may keep them forever. You put up with my moods, you see me for me and I don’t think that “thank you” would ever suit the amount of gratitude that I feel to whatever higher being put you in my path.

Thank you for the laughter, the smiles, the tears, the promises, the endings, the beginnings, the future trouble that i know we will get into, the conversations…. everything. 

Your aesthetic: Leather jackets, cuddly sweaters, tear stained cheeks, deep purple, <4′s, collarbones, political statements, bruised knuckles, constellations, coffee and cigarettes, glow-paint fights, pinky promises.

Lundayy: OH GOD! Here we go

I remember first meeting you at a chorus concert. You were all done up in a suit and tie and I thought “this kid looks dapper af”

flash forward to our freshman year of college. You’re sitting there in you goofy ass hat, and you message me from behind on tumblr. I knew from that moment on, that I wanted to make you a part of my life. 

I value your wit, your ability to care, your snark,  but most of all; I value your friendship. 

Lundayy, you will always have a special place in my heart… right next to my left ventricle.

Katie: Katie, my love. There is so much that can be said about how I feel about you. 

From the first moment I met you I thought “Fuck, now I’m stuck” and it’s the damn truth. I am stuck with you as I hope you are stuck with me. 

I know I don’t say it often enough, but I really do appreciate you. So much. There is something to be said about the fact that I am totally comfortable crying in front of you. I love your smile, your crazy-ass, psycho,  “I’m going to kill you” laughter, the late night car rides, The mid day car rides where we listen to Going to California just to feel for one moment…. as though we are infinite. 

I love you so much and I am privileged to have you in my life. 

Your aesthetic: Heart glasses, female punk bands, slapping bigots with bibles, flower crowns, crying with laughter, fox pants, preppy-punk.

Don’t ask me why I decided to do this because the only explanation I can give is that everyone deserves to feel loved and appreciated every once in a while. I love all you guys, so fucking much.

Peace out girl scouts

| Masterlist |

Picking at my black nail polish I sat there contemplating life, as you do. My life was turned upside down at the age of 14. With my parent’s deaths I made myself the carer of my younger twin siblings. They were only 10, they barely had a childhood, although saying that nor did I. At the age of 18, Pietro and Wanda being 14, I became their legal guardian. Their well being was the most important thing to me. We were sent around many foster homes, and no one bothered to adopt us. At 16 I got a part time job at the garden centre, something about nature calms me, I saved up everything I earned just so when I turned 18 I could take Pietro and Wanda out of the system. So that’s what I did. At the age of 22 I joined up to petition against Stark industries, after all it was Tony Stark’s weapon that killed my parents. Pietro and Wanda joined me, despite my protests. Ironically it was too protest, so Alex agreed. He was my fiancee at the time, however he signed up to under go some experiments to fight for our country, and never came back.

At the age of 27 I decided to do what Alex did and signed up for the experiments. The revenge I had for Mr Stark blinded me, to the point of never letting go. Wanda and Pietro both worried for my health. I being the stubborn woman I am, ignored their protests, and went onto the road of disaster, on my own. Well 3 weeks during the painful torture I see my younger siblings through the bars of my ‘room’. I wasn’t there to stop them, and it was too late for them to go back now. Strucker ave us all ‘gifts’, as he liked to call them, he gave Pietro a higher metabolism, Wanda telekinesis and mind control, and for me elemental manipulation. Ironic isn’t it? We were known as HYDRA’s greatest weapon. The Triple Threat. Everything was going amazing for them, until Wanda read their minds. They didn’t want to help our country. No. The wanted to take over the world, create massive destruction, use our powers for worst. We knew we had to get out. So that’s what we did. We were sent down onto a mission to defeat the Avengers, we knew Tony Stark was part of it, him and his ‘Iron Man’ facade. So we hated their guts. When we escaped we ran into a robot. He called himself ‘Ultron’. Manipulative bastard I can tell you that now. He made us believe he only wanted to destroy the Avengers, when in reality he wanted to destroy the planet. So we sided with the Avengers in order to defeat Ultron. My main goal was to get Wanda and Pietro out there, safe and sound.

I failed.

Pietro was shot down. I could’ve stopped it. Protected my little brother like I was supposed too. But I failed. The moment I saw his punchered body fall to the ground - unmoving, was when my world literally crumbled. My emotions took over my powers, and the thirst for revenge against Ultron was overpowering. A single blast killed off Ultron’s whole army. When I ran over to my little brother and stroked his new platinum blonde hair, just like I did whenever he had nightmares, or in distress. I held his head in my lap and closed his lifeless eyes. Those eyes that used to sparkle with happiness whenever I mentioned the words ‘ice cream’ and ‘‘let’s go’ in the same sentence. The moment was ended when I was pulled away by Captain America, despite my screaming to ‘let me go’ and ‘Pietro wake up’. 

I guess our family is cursed. To never live a happy life.


There was a knock on my door. I turned around and saw Steve standing there with his arms folded. “You alright?” No.

“Yes, perfectly.” I replied sarcastically, my Sokovian accent flowing through my speech. It’s the 2 year anniversary since Pietro’s death and Wanda has closed herself away from me. She has been more distant from me than ever since Pietro’s death. I’m still mourning, but in a different way.

Steve chuckled. “I guess you don’t want this then?” He pulled out the Ben and Jerry’s: Cookie Dough ice cream I love.

“Well that’s a stupid question isn’t it?” He walked over handing me one of the silver spoons he was holding.

“Steve?” I asked. He replied with a grunt, as his mouth was full of ice cream.

“Where do you think the government will send Wanda and I?” He looked over to me with sympathetic eyes.

“Because we are dangerous to society. Tony even said so, well not said, more like implied. You know he won’t let us leave, right?”

Steve shook his head. “I honestly don’t know Y/N/N. And I hate the fact he’s keeping you in here, like a prisoner, I really do. And to be fair, I’m not going to sign the accords, so you don’t have to either.” 

I looked over to him with hope in my eyes. He went to have another bite of the ice cream but I took it away from him. 

“Nuh uh! It’s mine!” I laughed. Steve whined. “But please can I have some more?” He fluttered his eyes and pouted.

“Fine. But not too much…” There was a moment of comfortable silence as we ate our ice cream.

“Steve? Can we go visit Pietro’s grave? I recently made some Irises that would look nice there…” Steve nodded.

A tear dropped down my cheek and he wiped it away. “It hurts so much Steve… I should’ve been there for him…” Steve pulled me close and stroked my hair, much like Pietro would do for me.

“I know sweetheart… I know…”


Tony gave me permission to visit Pietro’s grave. Wanda didn’t want to come. I knew how much it hurt her to even think about him. I left her a zinnia flower outside her door, so she knew I was thinking of her.

He was buried by an oak tree. When we were very young and our parents were still alive, we had a treehouse on top of an oak tree. We used to play hide and seek in the trees all the time. And now that he could rest by own made me smile.

Steve stood with me as I spoke to him. He never really got to know Pietro, but he did shed a few tears. He understood what it was like to lose someone you cared deeply about. He has gone through grief more times than any man should. He recently lost Peggy, and I was there for him on that. he has become my older brother, and best friend. He has become my Pietro.

“We should be getting back.” I nodded, leaving the iris resting against the stone plac. 

“Let’s go…”


I decided to pay my sister a visit in her room.

“Wanda?” I called through the door softly.

“Yeah?” Came the small reply.

“Can I come in?” I heard the door unlock. Her petite face poked through the gap in the door. 

(A/N The song ‘How to Save a Life’ just started… Kill me now…)

“Sure…” She opened the door wide enough for me to come in. She sat down on her bed and I joined her.

“I brought ice cream… Chocolate?” I offered, knowing it was her favourite.

“Steve and I picked some up on the way back…” She nodded and grabbed a spoon.

“Vision is cooking in the kitchen… Well trying to at least… God knows what he’s trying to do…” She laughed. I haven’t hear that sound in a while and it made me smile…

“I think he’s trying to impress a certain Maximoff, and it’s definitely not me…” I wiggled my eyebrows. She blushed.

“Aww my little sister’s growing up!” I teased whilst squeezing her cheeks.

“Though seriously I love you, but whatever Vision is trying to make is stinking the whole place up. “ She laughed.

“I love you too.” She gave me a hug and once she let go she gave me a spoonful of ice cream.

“Let’s go.”


Whelp we were right Vision really can’t cook. But it’s not like we can leave. Vision is acting like our prison guard.

“Come on Vis, I’m hungry… And all I’ve eaten today is ice cream…Let us just go to the store…”

He blocked me from leaving. “Alternatively we can order a pizza?”

“But we had that yesterday.” I tried to get past him again this time he pushed me back.

“Vision let Y/N leave…”

“He won’t Wanda. He has been told by Tony that we are too dangerous for the public. I’m right? Aren’t I?”

Vision didn’t say anything.

“It’s a question of safety.”

“Ha! I knew it!”

“But we can protect ourselves.” I shook my head.

“Tell her Vision. Tell her why we can’t leave.” I was getting angry now. Wanda sensed it.

“Not yours. No. Although I do wish that you are safe. Mr Stark would like to avoid the possibility of another public incident. Until the accords are on a more secure foundation.”

Now I was fuming. The fact that he brought the incident up mad me mad enough. But on Pietro’s anniversary? That was low… Even for an AI man thing.

I’m not going to sign them if you’re not. Wanda looked at me.

Of course I’m not… I would never leave you. I promise.


My powers are complex. So complex I don’t think I will ever understand them. I guess that’s what scares me most. The fact that something that is part of me and is indescribable, scares me. But the thing that scares me most is losing Wanda. I have promised myself to protect her even if it means I lose my life. She is the only family left. The only one I have. She was there when Alex never returned, and we shared our pain when Pietro died.

As I lay back playing with butterflies and flowers, intertwining them in a calming fashion, forgetting that I’m trapped in a place I should feel safe. I knew my eyes were changing colour. From blues to greens, greys to reds. With each of the different elements changing my eyes did too, according to which element I played with.

“It’s beautiful…” I jumped at the voice, but instantly relaxed. The only father figure in my life owns that voice.

“Clint.” I breathed. Turning around I saw him there with his arms open all arrowed up. I ran up and embraced him.

“Thank god you’re here! They won’t let us leave…” He pulled back from the embrace.

“Didn’t you get to visit him?” Clint was always there for me when Pietro died, just like Steve was. He even made me Godmother of Nathaniel.

“Yeah, but I had to beg. And even then I had security guards standing watch. I couldn’t have a proper conversation with him… I hate it Clint.”

He nodded embracing me again, stroking my hair. “I know kid, I know . Now how about we help our patriotic friend out?”

I chuckled “Let’s get Wanda.”


After a small civil war between Wanda, Vision, Clint and I, we had to pick some small guy up. I don’t know the details but I think his name’s Ant Guy? Or something? I dunno, it’s 11:00pm I need a coffee.

“I’ll go in.” I declared. “Wanda can you pop in that small coffee shop and get me a coffee please?” She nodded, knowing I needed my sleep, otherwise my powers go a bit coo-coo.

I walked up the stairs of the dingy apartment building, and wishing they had an elevator, because jeez I may be an Avenger but it doesn’t mean I’m not lazy. I have my moments people, don’t judge.

I finally made it to the requested room and knocked on the bland door. When it opened a short man, wearing a snapback and t shirt, answered.

“Hi, I’m looking for Scott Lang?” I asked.

“Holy shit you’re an Avenger, a hot one too.” I blushed.

“Luis stop pestering the girl.” I man with a duffel bag said from behind ‘Luis’. He was fairly handsome, not my type, but handsome.

“Are you Scott?” I asked, he nodded.

“Scott Lang, you’re amazing by the way, you know with your powers… Awesome.” I nodded awkwardly.

“Shall we leave?” He nodded eagerly.

“Let’s head out then, my sister owes me a coffee.”


 I leant my head against the window staring outside. The flashes of different colours reflect against my eyes. How can a world with so much destruction be so calm?

I felt a weight on my shoulder. I looked over to see my sister sleeping peacefully, her face neutral. I thought of Pietro again. Tears sprang to my eyes. Pulling her closer towards me I rested my head on hers, hoping to get some sleep myself.

(A/N ‘Goodbye My Lover’ is playing. Really not helping.)


I woke up to a soft poking. “Hm Let me sleep…” I muttered.

I heard the familiar sound of Steve’s chuckle. My eyes sprung open, suddenly awake, embracing him.

“Stevie! Oh how I’ve missed you!” He laughed hugging me back.

“Bucky’s here.” He said. I pulled back and looked at him.

“Bucky Barnes? As in THE Bucky Barnes? James Buchanan Barnes?” Steve nodded, laughing at my excited state. 

Steve mentioned Bucky to me over a year ago, and I agreed to help my bestfriend out. I learnt everything about him, everything he’s been through was heartbreaking. After looking at his photos in the Smithsonian museum, I may or may not have gained a small crush on him.

I looked over Steve’s shoulder connecting my eyes with piercing blue ones.

“Shall we get out of the van?” I asked, slightly laughing at our position.

“Yeah. Good idea.” Steve clambered out of the door, almost tripping as he did, and I followed. My outfit  was very similar to Wanda’s but we are sister. We almost share clothes all the time anyway.

“Mother Nature has decided to join the party!” I rolled my eyes.

“Nice to see you too bird brain.” He laughed, walking over and embracing me.

“This is so AWESOME! I mean thanks Captain America sir for giving me this opportunity.” I looked over to see Scott fangir- I mean boying over Steve.

“Do you want him to sign your shirt? It’ll have to cost you.” I held out my hand with a serious expression on my face. However with the expression he was pulling my lips quirked up.

“That was a joke… Come on! What does a Sokovian woman have to do to get a laugh around here!?” Sam patted my shoulder sympathetically. Thats when I heard a chuckle. It may have been small, but I heard it. 

I turned my head to where the sound came from. 

“We haven’t met. Y/N Maximoff at your service.” I held out my left hand towards the infamous Bucky Barnes. He seemed hesitant.

“Bucky.” Was his short answer. But his vibranium hand shook my hand. It was cold, but intriguing.

“I like the hand.” Was all I said, and I walked back to join my sister.


“What do we do now Cap?” Sam asked.

I was stood next to Bucky and Wanda, with Cap next to Bucky, Clint next to Wanda, and Sam next to Cap.

“We fight.”

Tony has another recruit. A child really. He shouldn’t be dragging kids into this mess, wearing a red spandex suit, with webs as weapons. There was this guy in a cat suit? Nat and Rhodey all on Tony’s team. Vision hasn’t turned up yet. He’s in a bit of a dirty situation, if you know what I mean.

That’s when it started. Old friends running at each other as though we were in some dramatic superhero movie. 

I hated this. I hated fighting people I considered family. They have all been there for me and Wanda. Cheering us up when we were feeling down. Tony and I even shared the same music interest. It took me a lot longer to warm up to him, for obvious reasons, but I feel like he gained my trust. I mean that was until this very moment.

The wind was propelling me into the air, making my hair whip around my face. The concrete beneath me was being cracked slowly. Vines started shooting out of the ground. My main focus was Tony and Rhodey. I could pull them to the ground enough to help Cap. It was their strong point, but also their weakness when it comes to me.

Bucky was staring at me in awe. “Do you wanna grab a coffee after this? Ya know, to get to know each other?!” He shouted up to me.

“Are you asking me out? On a date?” I shouted over the wind.

“Sure why not?” He chuckled.

“Okay.” I flew down to him and kissed his cheek. “Good luck soldier.” I winked, flying back up to Tony.

“Flirting really?” Tony aimed his repulsor at me. A vine flew up to grab his wrist.

“Why not?” I looked out for Wanda. I noticed her and Clint discussing a plan so I flinged Tony away and descended down to them. 

“What’s the plan?” I asked as my feet touched the floor.

“Nothing for you to worry about big sis.” I looked at Wanda skeptically.

“Are you sure?” She nodded. I heard a girly scream coming from just outside the airport. “Well I have to go investigate whose scream that was. I’m really hoping that it was Sam’s.”

Wanda and Clint chuckled. I descended to the broken window of the airport and peered inside. It was Sam and Bucky. Stuck to the floor. By spider webs.

“I would laugh…” The men looked over to me. “Who am I kidding. Two fully grown men got taken down by a 13 year old.” 

“I’m 15!” I heard a distant shout.

“Can you just help us instead of laughing?” Sam pleaded. I nodded calming down a bit. I float down to where the boy were and melts the webs.

“Don’t tell Steve Y/N…” Bucky insisted. I made the cross my heart motion and he breathed a sigh of relief. 

Y/N Vision’s here. 

I heard Wanda in my head. “I’d love to stay and chat. But I’ve got an AI to beat.”

I turned to fly away, but not before I heard: “Damn. That was hot.” Coming from Bucky.


“Y/N.” Was the emotionless greeting I received from Vision.

“Vision.”

“I don’t want to hurt you.”

“I know.”

“But I have to do this.”

“Bring it.” And that’s what he did. The mind stone glowed and all of the elements meeted in the middle, creating a bright light. It was almost like the Voldemort vs Harry scenes in Harry Potter. The amount of energy being restricted in the middle was drowning out my powers. The power of the mind stone was becoming too much for me, but I know that if I let go now. I could die.

“Y/N YOU NEED TO LET GO! YOU TOO VISION! THE ENERGY IS TOO MUCH Y/N COULD DIE!” I heard Tony’s yells.

Y/N you need to stop this I can’t lose you too!

I was too stubborn for my own good. I used my remaining energy left. I knew Vision couldn’t control his powers that well. And I knew I may never get to go on that date with Bucky. I let go and the energy that was being built up by Vision and I relapsed and came colliding to me. I was hit back by a strong force and my vision went black.

Wanda’s POV

I saw Y/N being flung back by the energy and being crushed by the side of the plane. Everyone stopped. Vision was staring at his hands, as though confused with what happened.

My sister. No.  No. No. No. This can’t be happening. I ran over to Y/N’s crippled and bloody body. I made eye contact with Steve and he rushed over to her. I screamed cradling Y/N’s head in my arms, just like she did with Pietro. I can’t lose her. No. Rocking her body back and forth in motion with mine as Steve held her hand. Bucky walked over, jaws clenched eyes collecting tears. I walked over to me and knelt down to kiss Y/N’s forehead. 

“What about our date doll?” He whispered. Tony flew down and took off his helmet. 

“FRIDAY full body scan.” 

“Nothing sir.”

I screamed again holding her cold body. However I didn’t notice the flowers growing around my sister and I. As though it was a final goodbye. 

Blue irises and daisies. Her favourite.

You promised Y/N. You promised.


It has been a year since Y/N’s death. A year since the civil war. And  years and a day since my brother died.

And today was the day Bucky would come out of cryotherapy, just so he could visit Y/N’s grave. We placed it right by Pietro’s. Tony and Steve made up and decided that it was best to ignore the government’s wishes.

I looked down at my sibling’s names on their headstones, eating a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Cookie Dough. I placed two iris flowers on each of their graves.

I guess Y/N was right. I guess we really are cursed.

A/N Okay I really apologize for that depressing ending. I cried too. This is the longest One shot I have ever done, and I spent all day on it for you guys. I really hope you like it! Listen to happy songs after this. I bed of you.  

Naruto 675 *contains SPOILERS*

So, came back from work and unpicked the chapter and here are my thoughts.

I knew Sakura was going to be Kamui-ed out of there and I like how instant Kishi made it. He got her out real quick without making her look too weak.

FIRST I LOVED THE NOSTALGIC TEAM 7-NESS. I was reading so HUNGRILY because I feel totally STARVED of any Sasuke/Sakura shared panel time. Also found it really interesting how DIFFERENT this interaction was compared to the last one when Sasuke, Kakashi and Sakura were last alone. When Sasuke was batshit crazy and tried to kill them both.

Loved this:

I just LOVE the look on Sasuke’s face, he looks so caught off-guard and CALM and NORMAL. Is it just me or does he seem to be VULNERABLE around her? Just me then? Nevermindlulz.

I’d like to think that had she shown up on her own without Kakashi there, Sasuke would have tried to act all cool and stuff which he does anyway later in the chapter, by default.

As always, we get a whole panel dedicated to Sakura’s “!?” when spotting the LOVE OF HER FRIGGIN’ LIFE.

I also LOVE how she practically IGNORES SASUKE after the initial greeting, because she’s too concerned for her Sensei. DAWWWWW. TOUGH LOVE, CHICKEN HEAD.

Moving on, Madara is such a BADASS. What Kishi is doing with him totally inspires me for QUIETUS where I’m planning on making him an equally as nasty piece of work. I LOVE HIS EVIL GENIUS CHARACTER.

Poor Obito, though. I felt for him, really.

Liked this part too, and am quite puzzled as to how SasuSaku fans and NaruSaku fans are taking this as ambiguous in meaning.

YOU STILL HAVE FEELINGS. SHE STILL HAS FEELINGS. Yes they might have changed IN DEPTH (I.E. THEY ARE DEEPER NOW as opposed to how shallow they were back in the Bell Test days) but they are STILL THERE.

Kakashi was remembering her feelings in relation to the BELL TEST day when they introduced themselves. Of COURSE SAKURA’S FEELINGS HAVE CHANGED AND ARE DIFFERENT FROM THAT DAY.

They now have a depth and meaning and sincerity that was lacking BACK IN THE MEMORY KAKASHI WAS RECALLING.

I’m sorry but whoever is looking at the comparison from a Part 1 perspective in general isn’t reading right. KAKASHI IS COMPARING ALL THREE OF HIS STUDENTS TO HOW THEY WERE ON THAT DAY AND THE GOALS THEY DISCLOSED TO HIM AS TWELVE YEAR OLD KIDS.

They have ALL CHANGED and MOVED ON since then. They have all GROWN.

And of the three, who is the ONLY one who HASN’T fulfilled their goal fully? Who hasn’t yet achieved her original aim (Sasuke, romantically)?

That’s right. SAKURA.

I’m sorry, whoever is doubting Sakura’s feelings at this point in the manga clearly isn’t reading the same story, because KISHI IS REPEATING IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. THAT MUST BE WHY HE KEEPS DRUMMING IT INTO OUR HEADS.

Lol at anybody who is doubting and thinking that Kakashi was talking about Sakura’s Part 1 feelings in general.

If Sakura wasn’t still into Sasuke romantically, why would she BLUSH and GRIN the second he jumped to her side FIRST after her smashy smashy attack on the battlefield?

Sakura in Part 1’s beginning was pathetic. I hated her and didn’t want her to get with Sasuke because she didn’t deserve him.

But you know what, now, guys? NOW HE DOESN’T DESERVE HER. That’s what makes their dynamic so beautiful. As much as I love Sasuke’s complex character, he has messed up big time in this manga, and he has to take responsibility for it. Sakura has grown and HE SEES IT TOO.

Remember that SMIRK he directed at her after witnessing her strength? The one that totally read, “HAWT DAYUM, GURL. I LEAVE YOU FOR A FEW YEARS AND YOU BECOME THIS? HELL YEAH.”

He remembered the pathetic Sakura he used to tell to train and it made him PROUD.

There seems to be an awareness of her that wasn’t there before. Just looking at the way he is angled toward her in that panel (clever perspective work from Kishi, I guess) and the way he is LOOKING at her and paying such attention when she speaks. He listens INTENTLY.

Kakashi’s narrative also makes it clear Sakura can’t just switch her feelings off, regardless of the shit Sasuke has done. LOVE WORKS LIKE THAT. You can’t just SWITCH IT OFF. CASE CLOSED.

The total icing on the case was this, though:

LOL… SLY SASUKE IS SLY. You never told NARUTO to watch his back… you said that to SAKURA, who BLANKED YOU, and has totally turned her attention to NARUTO who trolled us all and pulled a super healing jutsu outta nowhere because he has done something MEDICALLY AMAZING and of course nerdy Sakura wants the scoop on it and demands an explanation.

Sasuke doesn’t like this, though. So he says ANYTHING to try and break up their friendly chatter. ’Cause, you know, he DOESN’T LIKE HER ADMIRING NARUTO LIKE EVER. JEALOUS MUCH. So he resorts to making nonsense up in the hopes that they’ll stop IGNORING him and Sakura will listen to what he’s got to say instead.

It’s kind of adorable, really. Why else would Sasuke say something he hadn’t told a genuinely baffled Naruto, who also wonders why he said what he said, too?

Kishi, we see what you did there.

I’m so proud of where Sakura has come emotionally. Kishi trolls her a lot but her unwavering dedication is admirable. And I do really think now, she is too good for Sasuke, which is why she is also so right for him. Kakashi sees it. We see it. And maybe, Sasuke, somewhere, also realises it.

Contrast this to Karin’s feelings… just saying.

Which brings me onto my FINAL POINT. This chapter was lovely in its Team 7 goodness, and I’m anticipating the next when Kishi will probably relegate Sakura to some ridiculous damsel role again but I am also FRUSTRATED.

FRUSTRATED BECAUSE I KNOW HOW SAKURA FEELS TOWARDS SASUKE AND I DON’T NEED IT SHOVED DOWN MY THROAT EVERY 30 CHAPTERS OR SO.

WHAT I NEED IS A SIGN FROM SASUKE. A MOMENT JUST BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM. A SPARK.

I’m sick of “!?” and the even more annoying “…” between them!

What the HELL DOES “…” EVEN MEAN. IS IT IN THE DICTIONARY. NO. IT. IS. NOT.

PHYSICAL CONTACT. EYE-FLIRTING. ONE PANEL ALONE TIME. ANYTHING.

I’m sick of waiting and waiting for anything from Sasuke’s end, and in that sense I can kind of get how some people can see that maybe their relationship WILL end up platonic. I’m not giving up on Sasuke returning her feelings eventually, even if it’s ten years after the manga ends, but I am frustrated at the lack of anything concrete from him with regards to Sakura, and frankly, I’m getting tired of it.

I feel like Kishi keeps dragging it out and it’s getting to a point where he’s done so too much. It’s like he dances around them all the time. He stalls, over and over again.

You have to wonder WHY, but at the same time, it’s incredibly INFURIATING.

Just my thoughts, anyway. What do the rest of you think? Can anyone offer any HOPE with regards to positive feelings from Sasuke?

I’m all but weeping over the lack of anything Kishi is throwing our way!

I typed this at a thousand miles a second so excuse any typos. Thanks for reading my rant!

hi my name is vanessa and I'm here to remind everybody what makes Asuna so great.

So as of late, the anime has been messing up Asuna’s character and her relationship with Kirito. And I’m not very happy about it. So here’s a fun thing (with pictures) so everybody remembers what makes her the most special person in the series. 

Okay. Go.

allmyfansquees  asked:

Laura Kaye over on ao3 just put up a Phlint fic based on the undercover wedding sting. I can't paste the link, but it's the utterly charming Operation Snapdragon at /works/5230448 It was the first I'd heard of real-life event, so your post felt particularly serendipitous! (And really, when marrying a badass, what more could you possibly want from your wedding?)

Okay this fic is amazing but my actual favourite part had nothing to do with the plot, to wit:

“He is driving me insane,” Maria snapped. “Well, all of us, but especially me, because somebody decided I needed to be the wedding planner for this debacle.”

“I thought you wanted more operational coordination experience,” Phil said. “It was one of your developmental goals.”

I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING

She bullshitted her way through her annual review and now she has to be a wedding planner
