not a care was given

I’m Here to Stay

Summary: Before he could say anything else, you gave him a full slap on the face.
“That’s for leaving.” You affirmed in anger.
Surprising him, you pulled him into a kiss, the first you’d shared in the longest time.
Steve pulled you tightly by your waist, almost fusing you two with the force of his grip.
“And I guess this is for coming back.” He muttered after you pulled away to breathe.
“Don’t ever, ever, leave again.”

Mrs Captain - Masterlist

“I’ll take good care of them, Mrs Captain,” Peter affirmed, and you chuckled at the nickname he had given you.

“Be careful.” You reminded the teen. “She can be really strong and drag you around. And give them both water, it is hot outside.”

“Yes, Ma’am.” Parker nodded, blushing when you kissed his cheek before kissing your son’s forehead and petting Victory.

“Bye, mummy,” Sebastian said with a smile, waving goodbye as he left, holding Peter’s had tightly.

“Have fun.” You said back. “Lunch will be ready when you’re back.”

When they left, you walked back into the kitchen you shared with the rest of the team. After his aunt found out he was Spiderman, Peter spent most of his weekends in the compound and your older son had developed a very clear crush on him and followed him around all the time like a puppy.

You were in a very cheerful mood, even humming a song while putting dinner in the oven and preparing Steven’s formula. At least until you saw a figure in his room through the security camera.

You had never teleported so fast into a place so quickly and the stranger didn’t have any time to step closer to your baby’s crib before you slammed them against the wall with your powers.

“Oh damn.” The voice you knew too well exclaimed in a sound of pain. “I missed how fast and strong you can be.”

You stared at the man a few steps from you with wide eyes.

“Steve?!”

Pressed against the wall and looking a mixture of happy, in pain and terrified, your husband smiled.

“Hey, Y/N.”

You released him quickly and he walked to your direction with a huge smile on his face.

With a full beard and long hair, Steve looked much older than even in front of you and you didn’t know if you could cry or laugh in happiness.

“Are you real?” You whispered, feeling tears falling from your eyes as you reached out to touch his face.

“As real as I can get.”

Before he could say anything else, you gave him a full slap on the face.

“That’s for leaving.” You affirmed in anger.

Surprising him, you pulled him into a kiss, the first you’d shared in the longest time.

Steve pulled you tightly by your waist, almost fusing you two with the force of his grip.

“And I guess this is for coming back.” He muttered after you pulled away to breathe.

“Don’t ever, ever, leave again.” You slapped his chest.

anonymous asked:

I used to work fast food (I have since escaped and now make a nice $16.60/hr), and we had one regular customer who would come in, and yodel at the top of his lungs. Not a single care given to the other customers trying to enjoy their meals.

As a big Jonerys shopper, what i’ve always said that Dany and Jon lacked is bonding “I wanna get to know you” scenes. By this I mean scenes like:

Tyrion x Shae = Tyrion telling Shae about Jaime hooking him up with a whore to boost his confidence. The famous drinking scene.

Robb x Talisa = Talisa opening up to Robb about saving her drowning brother.

Jon x Ygritte = Ygritte telling Jon how many men she’s had sex with and how they weren’t as caring as Jon, (And this is a given, because I hated Ygritte.) Jon telling her about Winterfell and castles, etc.

The advantage the others had is that they had more episodes to develop, but even this statement is weak because Robb x Talisa and Tyrion x Shae were developed in shorter periods. Dany and Drogo didn’t have any that really connected with me, but he and Emelia’s on-screen chemistry is my favorite in terms of GoT couples. The only major argument is that there’s no time. The white walkers are here, so there’s no room for it anymore.

But geez, there’s SO much Dany and Jon could’ve bonded over.

Dany could’ve dove deeper into how Drogo defiled her, how she gave birth to dragons, being unburnt, Viserys, when her dragons were kidnapped, losing her son, man. And Jon could tell her about Maester Aemon, being in the nightswatch, the oath, Ygritte, and hopefully his resurrection when he feels comfortable enough to talk about it. With six episodes next season, we’re probably not going to get half of this. We should at least get a few while Jon and Dany are taking time to themselves.

This is why I don’t disagree when people say that they feel its “forced”. I think people feel there should’ve been deeper bonding scenes before sex.

You know, I don’t think it gets mentioned enough but Star vs. The Forces of Evil has some of the best female characters i’ve seen in a cartoon and the lineage of queens in Mewni is filled with unique characters that despite us not knowing a lot about them are given great care in their designs.

Just one of those things that makes me happy.

Let’s talk about this

I didn’t know why people felt that it was different how Danny reacted to Jorah volunteering vs. Jon volunteering. Until I watched it again.

Then I saw it

This was her reaction to Jorah:

Shock, confusion, worry, the casual ‘what-the-fuck-do-you-mEAN-you’re-going?’ look. but then eventually…

Acceptance… five seconds later.

And then Jon starts talking. when Davos goes “They won’t follow Ser Jorah”, and Jon goes “they won’t have to”. Davos got it right away what the hell this boy was planning to do. 

And Danny… Oh, sweet summer child:

THAT. 

She didn’t get it at first. It went from … ‘what..?’ to “oh god..”

THIS is the look of utter f e a r. She is terrified right now, and she does not know what to say. Her inner feelings are conflicting with her job as a queen.

And what face does Jon give?

That face a guy makes when he’s screaming ‘I’m sorry’ in his head.

Now… here’s one of my favorite parts…

Jorah even fucking looks at Danny, waiting for her to SAY something (I think this is also the moment Jorah knew. He just knew)

And Danny… her breathing is so uneven… She is legitimately scared for Jon.

“I haven’t given your permission” 

 I don’t care what you say… This is not Danny being a Queen. This is Danny being selfish. She let her personal feelings get in the way.

But Jon’s entire speech. About strangers trusting strangers, pulls at her. Jon forcibly pulls the Queen inside of her.

And Danny looks at Tyrion. Hoping for his counsel.

And she finally breaks. She doesn’t accept it, No, no no, she is absolutely 100% against this. But if you are anything like me or probably 99% of people in this world, when you want to say something you cannot say because you are trying to hold yourself together, all you do is nod.

So she nods.

The great tragedy of Anakin Skywalker is he never got a chance to be free.


Think about it. He’s born into slavery. He lives 9 years as a true slave. Even if Watto was the “best” owner ever that is still a horrific circumstance to spend your FORMATIVE YEARS. Even if Watto was a saint, there is so much trauma in having no freedom or control over your own body, in knowing the PRICE of your life. Not to mention secondary trauma, which is NO LESS TRAUMATIC, btw.

Then, he’s “freed” by a Jedi. But the Jedi frees him with the implied condition that Anakin be taken in and trained by the Jedi order. As soon as he leaves Tattooine, all choice is stripped from him. The counsel evaluates him and finds him wanting. His entire future is thrown into jeopardy because the man who bought him is dead and the new owners may want to return him. When they finally do induct him into the Jedi Order, it is with suspicion and a lot of conditions (cough, being the Chosen One, cough)

Once again he’s in a situation where he must call the people in charge MASTER.

(But it’s Different, someone might say. Yeah, well, when you’re 9 a cucumber looks like a zucchini, and patterns of thoughts, how the world works, worldview, that doesn’t change just because someone tells you some pretty words)

In the Jedi Order, Anakin loses the autonomy of his choices. He loses the option of getting married and having children (which, btw, is one of the rights traditionally stolen in slave cultures). He loses the right to chose where he goes and what he does EVEN AFTER HE REACHES ADULTHOOD. And, he loses the right to his own emotions.

Even as a slave, emotions are the one thing they can’t truly take from you. They can try to break you, they can punish you, but as long as you can think you can feel, you can hide what you’re feeling. You can be angry, sad, happy, in love even if they don’t want you to. But in the Jedi order, not only are these emotions bad, but it is an entire organization of psychics who vocally criticize and police you out when you’re struggling to “let go” of anger and hate, even or especially hate that is justified!

Then, this Order begins using SENTIENT HUMAN SOLDIERS who have been BRED AND RAISED AND SOLD TO BE AN ARMY. Soldiers who’se MINDS have been stripped to make them more obedient. And the Jedi don’t even hesitate to put them to use. The Jedi Order legitimized slavery. How do you suppose THAT felt for the former slave boy?

So, in the movie, you see a progression as Anakin struggles for power. Because, if he’s the master then HE WON’T BE THE SLAVE.

Lastly, after THREE YEARS OF TRAUMA AND WAR AND SLOWLY SLIPPING TO THE DARK SIDE (don’t tell me it was just Padme’s death that caused him to fall), Anakin fall’s and turns to the only Authority Figure who has treated him with full respect and told him that he is powerful, he is in control – Darth Sidious. Who then ENSLAVES HIM UNTIL THE DAY HE DIES.

Anakin only got 30 minutes of true freedom and he was dying.

And that just kind of kills me.

Shout out to Green Day for still writing and releasing rock music. They’ve experimented with their sound without alienating listeners and fans too much. Green Day was, still is and will always be a rock band. That deserves praise, especially in 2017.

Diary Entries of the Moon Signs

Aries: No matter what I do, I can’t control the way I feel and I can’t stop myself from expressing it. I act like I don’t care what comes out of my mouth, but I do deep down. And that’s why I get so angry, that’s why I blow things out of proportion and jump to conclusions. I feel too much and I feel nothing all at once. 

Taurus: I just want to feel safe and comfortable. That’s all. I don’t want to change my habits! I refuse to.  Why can’t people understand that? Why do they have to make fun of my ‘weird’ habits and indulgent activities? I just want to be able to enjoy myself.

Gemini: My mind is constant chaos, never shutting down. It doesn’t matter if I’m dreaming or awake. It doesn’t matter if I’m content or anxious. Away it races and I wish I could make it stop. I wish I could allow myself to really feel for more than a moment. But the moment I start feeling, it’s so overwhelming that I can’t help but breakdown. I feel like two different people sometimes..

Cancer: I can’t bring myself to be stable in my feelings. There’s so much beauty yet so much pain in having such intense emotions. I can love deeply and I can hate even deeper. My feelings are nothing to mess with because I’m not afraid to lash out but at the same time, I wish I wasn’t so vulnerable. Some people don’t deserve my sympathy, yet I keep giving.

Leo: For some reason, I just don’t feel complete unless I’m given praise and attention. Sometimes, I don’t even care if it’s bad attention, so long as all eyes are on me. If I don’t get my way, I just lose all control and get so dramatic that it’s almost like I’m in a play. I just want people to listen to me, to watch me, to like me..

Virgo: Hmm, where do I begin? People say that I’m analytical and clever, but I just can’t figure myself out and I can’t bare for anyone else to do it for me. I guard my emotions so well, I don’t express them. You’ll never catch me in tears and if for some reason you do, you can bet you’ll be crying, too.

Libra: I just don’t feel complete unless I’m with someone. Is this why I end up with all the wrong people? I want so badly to be with someone who can make me feel beautiful, someone I can depend on to keep the peace and have in depth conversations with me but I guess I’m too obsessed with romance to wait around for the right one. It leaves me feeling so empty and so lost. But I don’t really know.. I just feel like such a burden.

Scorpio: I understand others more than I understand myself.. In fact, I don’t understand myself at all. My emotions are too intense for me to focus on my mind. I have to maintain my feelings to function or I will completely lose it. I’ve definitely never felt normal and judging by the reactions others give me, I’ve definitely never been normal.

Sagittarius: I’m constantly running from my feelings but I embrace my thoughts and express them with an open mind. I mean, I definitely do feel but they come on so passionately that the more negative emotions can make me become destructive and careless. When I’m at my worst, I’m fearless. I won’t be afraid to hurt myself as well as others. And that scares me.

Capricorn: It’s just all too much but I don’t want to explain how I feel. I don’t want anyone to look at me as weak or a burden. I know I can be snappy, ruthless, and overbearing but I can’t help it. I have to be able to control everything in my life to feel content. If I’m having a bad day, everyone around me has to have one too..

Aquarius: I just want to be free. Let me feel as I please even if it’s just a little. Let me think all I want, even if I think too much. I will never be the person everyone wants me to be and that’s what I love most about myself but it’s also what I hate most about myself. I know I can be unpredictable but that’s what makes me unique. I just want to be myself.

Pisces: My fantasy world is where I find solace, though I know deep down it’s my downfall. When I’m sad, I’m depressed. When I’m angry, I’m furious. When I’m happy, I’m ecstatic. I’m so in touch with my feelings, that I think I feel more than others do. Some people think I’m too nice and too sensitive. I know this to be true. I know I give too much of myself and my time to the wrong people sometimes.. I can’t help that I see what I want to see. It’s how I feel comfortable in a world of chaos.

The Freedom Fighters never turn down people in need, not even in the real world!  As I’m sure you all know, the states of Texas and Louisiana have recently been hit with a Category 4 hurricane, Hurricane Harvey.  Among the affected areas was Houston, one of the biggest cities in the US.  Simple fact is, not everyone can escape from such a huge storm in time, and even if they can they’ll most likely have to leave many things behind.  The hurricane has since regressed to a tropical storm, but the damage has been done- thousands of houses destroyed, countless precious belongings damaged beyond repair, hundreds of thousands of people flooded out of their homes and stuck in overcrowded shelters.  As if that wasn’t enough, another major hurricane, Irma, is currently preparing to rage the Caribbean Islands and may even reach the East Coast.  For the affected areas to truly recover from these disasters will take many years, but in the meantime there are innocent victims that need our help.

So where do we at ASO come in?  This October, we’re planning to hold a Sonic gaming stream to raise relief money!  Hosted by a member of our staff, @ian-pk, watch us play Sonic games that you audience members vote for!  Of course, as this is still a non-profit project, 100% of the donations generated during this event will be instantly transferred to trustworthy charities that will ensure that the victims of both storms are given the proper care.  Our project may currently be small and humble, but we still want to do our part to help out a good cause.  We have no idea how well the stream will go, but it’s our hope that our beloved audience will do their best to spread the word and help this endeavor be as successful as it can be!  And of course, we do have incentive- we have some exclusive ASO previews for the more generous donors!

As of right now, there are still quite a few details that need to be worked out, but you can all look forward to some updates soon!  Even the Freedom Fighters can’t tackle this tragedy alone- we need your help!  Whether it’s through spreading the word or donating during the stream, every little bit helps!  It’s times like these when the true power of teamwork makes itself known, so let’s do it to it!

I don’t even know what I love more: Tom’s little jump and his “this time he got me” face or Luca scaring him while he was all seriously talking about war. But I love them both so much

That scene where Touichirou self destructs and Serizawa just stands there and cries because I guess Claw had been his whole world for years and he just realized the man he looked up to and counted on for help to become a slightly more functional human being never remotely cared about him in the first place.

It was given very little space in the comic, but it just made me really sad.

  • Ghosts and Guardians that are close to each other
    • Ghosts acting like mini-heaters and nuzzling their Guardian’s neck when it gets too cold
    • Ghosts playing hide-and-seek with their Guardians, hiding behind their marks, in their hoods, or in their coats
    • Ghosts massaging their Guardians after an especially harrowing mission by rolling around on their backs
    • GHOSTS BEING HUGGED BY THEIR GUARDIANS
    • Ghosts fiddling with their Guardian’s radar to redirect them towards interesting finds
      • Ghosts, during relatively peaceful missions, picking up small trinkets (tiny flowers, funny looking rocks, etc) for their Guardian
    • Ghosts resting on their Guardian’s head when they get tired
      • Ghosts resting on their Guardian’s head and getting swallowed up by their poofy hair
    • Ghosts playing pranks with their Guardians- giving them the wrong weapon in the Crucible, changing their armor, mimicking their voice, etc
    • Ghosts staying up late with their Guardians and acting like their flashlight
    • Ghosts insisting on taking snapshots of their Guardian’s best kills like a proud parent
    • Ghosts stargazing with their Guardians, pointing out the different constellations and stars, making up new ones
    • Ghosts and Guardians being each other’s best friends- never needing to look behind because they know that the other is always there
  • Alternatively, Ghosts and Guardians who have a strictly professional relationship
    • No deep talks, just business- Guardians protecting Ghosts, Ghosts powering Guardians
    • Both understand that trust can be had with superficial care, that not being close does not negate their importance to the other
    • And then something happens and they start developing a friendship because fuck yeah
  • And then Ghosts and Guardians that have no relationship
    • Ghosts having Guardians that abhor their duty
    • Ghosts being kept in the dark by their Guardian, being left behind, being given minimal care
    • Ghosts looking at other Guardians, wishing that they were matched with someone else, harboring resentment for their Guardian
    • Ghosts who eventually lose their Guardians, whether because they turned to the teachings of Darkness, or chose to take a permanent death
    • Ghosts wondering what they could have done differently- but feeling little sadness, for their Guardian was nothing but a stranger
