no flaws here

my cousin likes to notice things about me that i don’t even notice. did you know that you hum when you’re nervous? sometimes being oblivious is the only way that i know how to be. take being clumsy for instance. i used to pick on my ex for being a klutz, always dropping drinks or tripping over things. never noticing my own mistakes, but always hers. i guess i do notice some parts of me. like how you can write until your words will no longer make you feel lonely. like how you can light cigarettes until the smoke lingers. you don’t get to be perfect, but you can accept yourself. so i’ve been accepting my imperfections for what they are and not for who i’m not. i am the people i have loved. i am the renaissance that has gone astray, burying my heart into the leftovers of ashtrays. i am the lips i have kissed, loving you made me this way. i am the people i have disappointed, growing into a better person has left my arms sore from the constant reaching, i’ve been teaching myself the piano, the keys won’t sound like yours, the jingling of your smile down memory lane, i’ll always miss you when i have no one else, i guess my flaws are still here. why yes. why yes, i do hum. the subtleties that i am, the memories that i am.

final opinion on voltron space event: not really a bad event??? I’m probably more lenient with this one because this comes right after the utter disaster that was the easter event but you know, I didn’t hate it

I didn’t necessarily love it tho, there were a few flaws here and there (which are standard when it comes to tabimatsu so I won’t really say anything about that), but it did have a lot of redeeming qualities to it (they freaking lampshaded kara and jyushi’s awful as fuck space outfits, like here I was thinking they were designed that way because the staff had no taste, but nOPE they knew what they were doing)

I’m not sure how to feel about the idea of the storylines being based around trios instead of duos though??? in this event, the matsus were split up into the 156 and 234 trios, and while the skits with them were pretty funny, it came at the price of story 4 and 5 being… kind of blah to be completely honest

like usually when they’re split into duos, stories 2, 3, and 4 all revolve around the antics that arise with each pairing, but when there’s a trio, story 4 can’t really work with that kind of structure anymore and idk I feel like that makes things a little less interesting??? I’m not saying that this is how it’s going to be for every hypothetical event that follow this agenda but for this one the last 2 parts ended up feeling relatively boring

Okay but why don’t more people like Atlantis?! like

the main character is a dude that’s brave and amazing but isn’t typically masculine

Growing up, Brennan’s education was always enhanced at home. Her father’s occupation as a science teacher allowed her the opportunity to continue learning outside of traditional school hours. Her curiosity and insatiable thirst for knowledge were better able to be nurtured, given her situation. She had an advantage, for sure. In the past, Booth harbored concerns about his own child’s education. He was unable to provide Parker any such supplemental enrichment- at least not as it pertained to science. But Booth also knew that Brennan (his “partner” at the time) and Max could potentially aid in that department. And they did just that. Nowadays, Booth and Brennan still take that approach with their kids’ education. Learning does not come to a halt when the bell rings. Parker, Christine (and presumably little Hank) are consistently engaged in learning. Whether it’s how to play peek-a-boo, the periodic table of elements, the bone song (the REAL one), reading, riding a bike, or standing up to a bully (or a monster), their education is supplemented at home. It’s quite evident that these children immensely enjoy expanding their minds and skill sets (I assume Christine will eventually take to riding a bike just fine). And both Booth and Brennan are able to teach their children the most valuable of lessons- both academic and life. The two of them have so much knowledge to pass down.  And since their varying strengths and areas of expertise complement each other, their kids will undoubtedly be incredibly well-rounded. Whether they become writers, scientists, hockey players, or car salespeople, they will have had a solid educational and emotional foundation. 

Obviously, Booth isn’t always interested in science and logistics. He wanted Christine to learn to ride a bike without making it into a physics lesson. It does not mean he has any sort of contempt for science. Or that he doesn’t possess the utmost respect for his wife’s intelligence and her team’s expertise. And it certainly doesn’t imply that he does not want his children to reach their full intellectual potential. If you recall the end of 11x16, Booth would be the proudest father in the world if Parker turned out like Brennan. He understands how important science is. After all, it is absolutely vital to his job. There is a reason he wanted to work with Brennan after their first case together. There is a reason their solve rate is unparalleled.  And while he himself may not want to infuse a teachable moment into every facet of his home life, he can appreciate Brennan’s round-the-clock devotion to science and mathematics- and really, learning in general. It’s a part of her. And to be honest, it’s part of why he fell in love with her. He loves her mind just as much as any other component of her.  He read one of Brennan’s “thick” science books when she was on the run for three months. Did he enjoy it? Clearly not. But it made him feel closer to her. And there have been a number of instances where it is apparent some of Brennan’s scientific knowledge and desire to learn has rubbed off on him. Remember when he scored in the 97th percentile? He was going to try for 99% the next year. “You turned me into a monster.” Similarly, Brennan isn’t always concerned with the intangible. How many times has she dismissed Booth’s faith or his gut feelings? But there are also occasions during which she notes their tremendous value. “There’s a time, and a place.” Booth and Brennan will occasionally disagree on each other’s teaching methods and priorities. And because they are famously stubborn at times, the two of them may even get a bit competitive over the best way to impart their wisdom (i.e., the end of 12x06). That’s the heat though. They have been this way since the beginning. At the end of the day, they will inevitably come together and find a compromise. They will understand from where the other is coming. That’s what they have always done. “Mass graves for me, and a beach with liquor for you.” Booth has made it clear he wants his kids to grow up to be more like Brennan. And Brennan wants her kids to grow up to be like Booth. Those children will be obviously be the best of both parents. Ultimately, the most important thing is that Parker, Christine, and Hank have every opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed. And that they have a better childhood than Booth and Brennan. And most importantly, that they are happy, healthy, bright, and loved.

Another Man’s Treasure

A/N: This will be a multi-part one shot because @alrightpetal and I have this thing about making Harry super vulnerable and flawed. So here you go.


…I’m gonna show you tonight! I’m alright! I’m just fine! And you’re a tool so, so what?

You belted your heart out up on stage, pumping your fist in the air to empower your words even further. It was a good thing you knew all the words, too, because your mates had bought you so many drinks your vision was crossed and blurred you couldn’t have read the lyrics to an unfamiliar song. Then you would have just been a blubbering fool butchering a karaoke performance. And that would have been embarrassing.

Singing yourself blue in the face—and drinking yourself into oblivion—served as the perfect outlet for your aching heart. Hours earlier, you’d been dumped. Or more accurately, replaced.

It’d been a week since you’d heard from your long-term boyfriend, and while you knew he was on holiday with his mates—a holiday you hadn’t been invited on—it was still odd that you hadn’t heard from him at all. Not even a text to let you know that he’d made it to Amsterdam. You didn’t expect too much communication; you trusted him to treat you right, but, silly you, you thought your boyfriend might actually miss you and want to say hi.

Last night after seven and a half days of nothing, you completely lost it and called him forty-seven times in a row. And not a single one was answered. So you rang your closest friends and they came over, laptops and tablets in hand, and intense cyber-stalking commenced.

It only took thirty-four minutes for your good mate Lindsey to unearth a damning post on Insta that your boyfriend was tagged in by a girl you kind of knew. The picture itself wasn’t awful; honestly you couldn’t make out much besides silhouettes and drinks. Even the caption wasn’t much; all it said was, “this guy” with a random slew of emojis. But the funny thing was, when you tried to search for it yourself, nothing came up. Meaning you were blocked. You weren’t meant to see this picture.

Twenty-two minutes of super-sleuthing was enough time for your oldest friend Ashley to find every social media account the girl had, and then eventually uncover her phone number.

In thirteen minutes you had a text drafted to her that was so long it was broken into five different parts when you hit send.

And one minute and fifty-four seconds is all the time your boyfriend—well ex-boyfriend—allowed you to speak to him today before he told you he was coming back tomorrow and there’d be no need for you to come see him. Tomorrow or ever again.

So your mates did what they knew best. They took you out, got you absolutely smashed, and then got you up on stage to pour your heart out. Somewhere in between I Will Survive and Total Eclipse of the Heart, you got a bit weepy and ended up calling your brother from the toilet. It took you awhile to realize you weren’t actually sobbing to him but his voicemail, and as soon as you did you pulled yourself back together and headed out for another drink and a rousing rendition of Since U Been Gone.

The few other patrons in the pub were hardly paying attention to your drunken warbling on stage, only breaking from their conversations when your mates would cheer at the end of each song, some of them even offering half-hearted claps. If they were annoyed, they certainly didn’t let on. Most likely, they pitied you; for Christ sake, you pitied you.

When your song ended, you finished the rest of your drink and began flipping through the songbook. Liberation was surging through you and you wanted a song to match your mood; something to serve as a proper fuck you to the twat you’d wasted the last few years of your young life on.

The book closed on your fingers, and you stumbled back in surprise. Were books automated now too?! You still weren’t over the automated tills at Tesco, would you now have to get used to robotic books closing on you when they’d had enough?!

“[Y/N].”

You looked up, your blurred vision slowly coming into focus as you swayed on the spot. A robotic book didn’t close itself on you, a person had closed it. Which was rather rude of them.

[Y/N],” he repeated. Finally he came into view and you cocked your head in confusion.

“Hazza?” you slurred, taking a step closer to get a better look. You nearly toppled off the stage, but Harry was quick to grab you by the waist and steady you before easing you down.

The First Card: This card represents where you currently are or what state you’re currently in. Perhaps something is weighing you down, this could represent your current level of self-esteem or amount of love you have for yourself.

The Second and Third Card: We often lose sight of our best selves and tunnel vision onto our flaws. These cards are here to remind you of your admirable qualities, what it is about you that makes you fantastic and unique. It’s ok to need a reminder. 

The Fourth Card: This represents something you’ve overcome, a struggle either within yourself or with another. Remember what you’ve overcome, you are so strong.

The Fifth Card: This is a simple act of self-care you can practice to help you center your mind and focus on loving yourself and believing in yourself. 

The Sixth Card: This is a summary of everything the cards have told you so far, it explains how everything is tied together. How can I bring all of this together and apply it to gaining more self-confidence?

You can see some of my readings and spreads here and you can get your own reading by me here. 💖

honestly it’s the mark of a good work of fiction when literally every single character is weak or flawed or has done bad things and yet every one of them is loved anyway

We could erase our imperfections
if only
we were sketches made with pencil


We could mold ourselves in any shape 
if only
we were sculptures made of clay


We could rewrite our flaws into strengths
if only
we were the result of someone’s imagination


We could exist as flawless masterpieces
if only
we were mere pieces of art
unfortunate to have never known life

Hello Guys !!!!!! Please I really hope you would All participate to this it means a lot to me as a castiel stan to have something showing appreciation for him out there and it would be so awesome for us to make it into a collective work, share ideas and our love for cas because he (and misha as an actor) really really really deserve it and way more.

So the general rules are

-This will be posted in three platforms, Youtube (here) Twitter (@NOriginalAddict in THIS Tweet) and Tumblr (castieldeservesappreciation.tumblr.com) if you can comment on YT it’s better, if not you can Send us your reasons in our ask box HERE ) :D that way there’s no reason not to participate *wink* :p

- BE SPECIFIC IN YOUR REASONS TO LOVE CAS, bring up a scene, a quote, badass, heartfelt or funny/sassy scene mention which episode …. do as you wish ….

for example : instead of saying : Cas is badass
say something like : I loved how smart and strategic cas was in 5x18 when he fought the angels and carved the sigil in his own chest and banished them all

or instead of “cas has awesome fighting skills” bring up the specific ep or scene like “that moment in 6x3 that angel had both angel blades but still couldn’t get to cas and kill him and cas outsmarted him by throwing both of them through the window”

or even something as simple as “the way he flips his angel blade” or “his smile” “how enthusiastic he is” “the way he hugs people” free your imagination

and instead of : cas is loyal to the winchesters
say : that time when cas chose to save sam’s life when anna was out to kill him, even if it could’ve stopped the apocalypse altogether but he valued his life and did all he could to save the world including sam….

an answer to why people hate on Star('s flaws)

venturing a guess here

but it’s because a lot of people want to have their cake and eat it too (in addition to the standard misogyny)

they want a protagonist who is basically perfect yet who faces challenges and obstacles and grows from them

Except that if a protagonist is perfect, or close to it, then how can they face real challenges or obstacles? Because they should succeed with either little effort, or little lasting negative consequences/ramifications, and that means there’s no real chance for character growth because the protagonist didn’t have to do or learn anything because she’s already perfect

Star is incredibly far from perfect. She’s kind and loving and good-intentioned, but she’s also selfish and doesn’t think about the consequences. And these real-life character flaws common in many people (especially teenagers) have really bad ramifications given that Star has a ton of responsibility placed on her.

But because we have the 3rd person view, where we see a lot of things the cast of the show can’t, we think “well Star should’ve done this or felt like this, etc.” because we aren’t as invested in the situation as Star, and we have much more knowledge and the benefit of hindsight.

noddytheornithopod  asked:

An odd thing I've noticed is a lot of people suddenly claiming that the way Lapis is written is inconsistent and doesn't really have a defined character, and I was wondering, why do you think people feel this way? Is it just looking at the surface of her character, or could there be valid arguments from them?

I feel like my reaction to this has two sides here, and one of them is kinda bitter so bear with me

Side 1: the legitimate

Lapis is a multifaceted character and in some ways a misleading one. At her most bitter, hurt, and vindictive, she still spent the day making fart jokes with Steven. The thing about Lapis is that she’s both a very good actor, and in some ways, her emotions tend to surge and move very rapidly. If she’s in a good mood, that shows, and she comes across light and approachable and amiable for the most part. 

If she’s in a bad mood, then she comes across a bit like a fairytale witch who has arrived to curse your newborn and burn your castle down.

This is part of why I see a parallel between Lapis and Ruby- it’s that sense of very fast-moving emotions that tend to vent without too much in the way of a filter. If Lapis is trying to play subterfuge, her response is to more or less package off and try to avoid the entire feeling- better yet, just don’t bring the thing up at all, or acknowledge it even when it’s what everyone around you is talking about.

So yeah, it can be hard to get a single decisive read on Lapis because she’s someone who has a lot of feelings and they can shift very suddenly (see, Lapis in Mirror Gem, where she goes from “you actually talked to me! You helped me! :D” to practically chanting about ancient sins and ready to personally destroy the Crystal Gems in less than five seconds)

Side 2: buckle your pants, kids, because Clockie’s here and I’ve been bitter about this about as long as I’ve been in this fandom
