not just strong for a girl

The Power Of Love

These are Hc’s based on the song: ‘Power Of Love’ by Huey Lewis & The News for @letshearitforthe-boy , I hope you like them!!


~Richie first became aware of the fact that love wasn’t simply one straight up feeling, but a mixture of about 20 emotions when he was sixteen. 

~As a child, he just thought that one day he’d simply feel the magic feeling with some girl when the moment was right. 

~Richie came to realize that falling in love was different for some people. It made some people incredibly happy while others became upset or angry. He didn’t quite understand how anyone could be upset about falling in love until he fell in love for himself.

~With a boy, who was also his friend. Love wasn’t fair, he decided. But damn, it was strong. 

~He couldn’t stop thinking about Eddie and it was simultaneously the best and worst thing. 

~He was simply planning to ignore the feeling and die with it. But one day, Eddie made a move and he felt that tidal wave of love. It was so powerful, it knocked him over. Literally. Meaning, Eddie kissed him and he was so shell shocked, he tripped over the curb outside Bill’s house.

~Eddie laughed for about ten minutes on and off, that cute little infectious giggle that Richie wants to hear for the rest of his life. 

~They make a date for Friday and Richie is over the moon. 

~Friday rolls around and Richie is in his car parked outside on Eddie’s curb five minutes early. He is changing the station over and over until he lands on a damn good song. 

~’The power of love is a curious thing. Make a one man weep, make another man sing. Change a heart to a little white dove. More than a feeling, that’s the power of love…..’

~Richie starts singing along, drumming hard on the steering wheel and having the time of his life. 

~’ Don’t need money, don’t take fame, Don’t need no credit card to ride this train. It’s strong and it’s sudden and it’s cruel sometimes But it might just save your life. That’s the power of love, That’s the power of love….’

~Eddie suddenly throws the car door open with a smug smile but instead of being embarrassed, Richie keeps going but is now trying to serenade Eddie. 

~Eddie thinks he is the biggest dork he has ever met and he loves it with all his heart. 

~So they end up singing Huey Lewis & The News the whole car ride there. It is one of Richie and Eddie’s favorite memories together.

NONNIEEEEEEE, I mean, THAT SONGGG girl, it's too much. You are making me almost cry already, like I'm so weak for your writing and I can imagine so much just by this?? But you can do it baby <3 be strong, it's gonna be great, we all gonna be strong too when you post it and will be a big old crying mess but hey, it's worth it. Good luck to my baby Saeyoung :( <3

Awww honey! I know! That song gets me every time- has for years! 
So when I knew I was going to write this series I knew that that song was perfect for Saeyoung and what he would go through, just like “A little fall of rain” would work best for Zen. 
I’m not even close to writing the hard part for this story and my heart already hurts- we can be strong together @possessedbytheskiess! I hope you enjoy the story honey, when I finally finish it that is!

Favorite  Drama’s

 ~Just a few of my favorites, so if you find yourself in a spot of not knowing what to watch…check these out!~ (Some on this list I haven't completed yet.)

  1. Scarlet Heart Ryeo~ Lee Joon Gi and IU: I have watched this drama, no lie 6 times and it still hurts everytime I watch it. I don't know why I keep doing this to myself… Oh yeah.. Lee Joon Gi as Wang So, that’s why. ( @ashes-of-elysian ) right?
  2. Just You~ Aaron Yan (Taiwanese): This is another drama I can just keep watching… I find the story cute and I love the characters.
  3. Strong Woman Do Bong Soon~ Park Hyung Sik: I fell in love with this drama because of the chemistry between the two leads. Hyung Sik is just so extra and lovable. A+++ drama.
  4. Love Rain~ Jang Geun Suk and Yoona: It’s cute, fun and has many heart warming moments. and I love Yoona.
  5. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo~Nam Joo Hyuk: Adorable from start to finish, although when you’re finished you really wanna say “SWAG” a lot.
  6.  Whirlwind Girl~ Yang Yang:( Chinese)  China is infamous for making brutal and heart-wrenching dramas. This one is no different.   The main lead gets beat down constantly and somehow keeps getting back up. I must love to suffer because I really liked it.( Martial Arts Drama)
  7. The Scholar Who Walks The Night~ Lee Joon Gi: Vampires, bloody fights and a hint of romance. Not too shabby.
  8. Fabulous Boys~( Taiwanese version of You’re beautiful) Jiro Wang: I liked this version better than the Korean one. The actors meshed better and the female lead was warm. I liked that.
  9. Fight My Way~ Park Seo Joon: LOVED THIS DRAMA. Funny, charismatic and dynamic.  First love and friendship.
  10. Bong Soon: Cyborg in love~ Cho Kyuhyun: Okay this drama, The story was good though the writers pushed it so fast. How can you fall in love with characters when the episodes were only 15 minutes long? Luckily my bias was the main male lead and I would watch him in anything. He saved this drama.
  11. School 2017~Kim Jung Hyun: YES YES YES! Finally a high school drama without a grossly forced love triangle.  I loved this drama from the first episode.
  12. The King Loves~ Hong Jong Hyun: At first, I was bored with this drama. I disliked the main male lead and it was following the same lines as many other drama’s, an intense love triangle and the ever so popular plot of let’s see how much we can drive the second male lead in the dirt. But as the story progressed I saw something that I hadn’t seen before… the main female lead showing more interest in the second male lead?????? WHAT? I was instantly intrigued and have been hooked on every episode since.  Plus Hong Jong Hyun…is pretty easy on the eyes.
  13. I hear your voice~ Lee Jong Suk.: I loved the sweetness of this drama. Although most dramas Lee Jong Suk plays in is good. Except for W what the hell happened there?
  14. LoveO2O~Yang Yang: this drama is a geeky mix of romance and gaming… I mean how can you not like that???
  15.  She was Pretty~ Park Seon Joon and Choi Siwon:  I wouldn’t want to be the leading lady in this drama? I mean lordy.. having to choose between Siwon or Seo Joon? I would die….


 SO here are a few. I like them… so yeah.

Why you should be watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine

It’s a long one, get ready.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an American police sitcom created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur. The series revolves around Jacob Peralta (Andy Samberg), an NYPD detective in Brooklyn’s 99th Precinct, who comes into immediate conflict with his new commanding officer, the serious and stern Captain Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher). But despite Samberg playing the lead, it’s not “The Andy Samberg Show”, and is nothing like the Adam Sandler type movies he’s usually seen in.

Produced in Los Angeles as a single-camera comedy, Fox originally ordered thirteen episodes for its first season, eventually expanding it to 22 episodes. All episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine begin with a cold open, although this may not necessarily have anything to do with the actual plot of the episode. Since its debut, the series has received critical acclaim, with the cast, especially Samberg and Braugher, being singled out for praise.

The show constantly speaks out against racism, homophobia (specifically gay and trans rights), sexism, police brutality, and the stigma against mental health issues; with all the humour steering entirely away from offensive jokes and stereotypes, instead relying on jokes that are genuinely funny and fantastic comedic timing.


Characters

Brooklyn Nine-Nine contains a plethora of multi-layered characters; and the main cast (7 characters) contains only 2 white men, one of whom is half Jewish, two black men, two Latina ladies, and one white woman.

Starting with Raymond “Ray” Holt (Andre Braugher), captain of the 99th precinct, an African American, openly gay, middle-aged man in the highest position of power on the show. Like all the characters on the show, his race or sexuality is never once the punchline to a joke. He cares deeply for his husband, and his friends in the 99th precinct and acts as a father figure to many (especially Peralta).

Next, we have Jacob “Jake” Peralta (Andy Samberg), a white half Jewish man who even though acting immature and unable to deal with complex emotions at the beginning of the series, grows into a mature adult who can express his emotions well and apologises when he messes up. Peralta is also portrayed as a strong feminist, calling out anyone’s ignorant behaviour. In the fifth season, Peralta also must learn to deal and cope with mental health issues.

Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), is a Latina woman in a position of power (especially as of late season 4 and onwards) who’s never once sexualised because of her ethnicity. Since the beginning of the show Santiago has dealt with anxiety in various extremes, but not once is this considered a weakness, just a part of her character; and despite being romantically involved with Peralta, never is she considered “just a love interest”, but a unique and complicated character in her own right.

Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), is one of only two white men in the precinct, and his character relies heavily on his hobbies, such as a local food critic, sewing, yoga, and other traditionally non-masculine interests. He also has an adoptive son and an incredibly strong friendship with Peralta.

Then, we have Regina “Gina” Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), the epitome of self-confidence. Despite having a very close platonic relationship with Peralta, not once is she considered a “threat” to Santiago.

Terrance “Terry” Jeffords (Terry Crews) is the sergeant of the 99th precinct and African American. Jeffords is family man, with three daughters and a wife whom he loves. Not once is his relationship with his family considered to have “stripped him of his masculinity”. He also loves his work family at the 99th precinct, acting as a parental figure to them.

Finally, Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) is another Latina woman who isn’t sexualized for her ethnicity and is in every practical sense, a badass. Recently, it’s been teased that the character will have a female love interest.


Cast

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has one of the most diverse casts on TV right now, with only 3 of its 7 main roles filled with white actors, and the bisexual Stephanie Beatriz. Not once have any of its cast been known to have done anything considered “problematic” in the slightest.

Jacob “Jake” Peralta Andy Samberg

Raymond “Ray” Holt Andre Braugher

Amy Santiago Melissa Fumero

Charles Boyle Joe Lo Truglio

Regina “Gina” Linetti Chelsea Peretti

Terrance “Terry” Jeffords Terry Crews

Rosa Diaz Stephanie Beatriz


Relationships

Brooklyn Nine-Nine portrays multiple close relationships between its characters. With childhood best friends, parental figures, ladies sticking together, a slow burn relationship, and a healthy gay marriage.

The most obvious relationship in the show is the romantic one between Peralta and Santiago, one that has been incredibly healthy and positive, with both characters supporting and caring deeply for one another.

Peralta has strong relationships with most of the characters on the show, the most obvious, after Santiago, is that which he has with Boyle. They have a strong platonic relationship that is never once considered gay by either the characters or audience nor does it “damage their masculinity”.

Another loving platonic relationship on the show is between Linetti and Peralta. The two have known each other since childhood, with Peralta even getting Linetti her job as a civilian administrator at the 99th precinct. Similarly, we see the relationship between Diaz and Peralta grow and in the later seasons, the audience can see just how important their friendship is to one another.

At the start of the show, Peralta is reluctant to show respect to Holt, thinking that Holt doesn’t know how he works and that he’s holding him back. But, throughout the show and its seasons, the two develop a strong bond, going as far as referring to the other as “son” and “dad”.

Another positive relationship in the series is that of Santiago, Diaz, and Linetti – the women of the 99. A prime example of this is when Diaz told Santiago that “You’re not the only girl at the table anymore. We work in a police force full of dudes. We gotta have each other’s backs, okay?”.

Though these are the most prominent relationships in the show, the beauty of these characters is that you could pair any two together for an interesting plot and it would still work. In fact, this is what the writers often do, with the characters in the A and B plot always mixing around.

why aren’t there any female characters in anime/manga who are just absurdly strong…. like why is it only dudes in shounen/action series who get insane strength and then girls (even girls who are the main character of their own series!!!) are always stuck with some auxiliary role of stealth or intel or support….. give me one punch woman

music.

“Hey, sorry to bother you. I wouldn’t be if… if you didn’t look like you could use some company.”

Your statement is met with silence as the unfamiliar guy in front of you lifts his eyes up to stare at you in bewilderment. Late autumn wind blows past and ruins your neat hairdo. Your hand grips the strap of your purse; you note tears glisten in his deep brown eyes and decide to look away so he’d have enough time to collect himself. The guy sniffles, rubs his eyes before giving you a tight smile; He opens his mouth to possibly dismiss you, but you beat him to it, “There’s no shame in crying. If you’re sad, you’re sad, right? Nothing you can do about it.” He sighs, “May I sit?” You inquire. After a moment of consideration, he gives a curt nod. And so you do.

Nuh-uh! The reason why I’m side eyeing everyone who says that Ragnarok is so good bc it has no romance is bc I’m here for marvel breaking the trend that WoC is always the ones who are the ‘strong independent woman’ either not needing or not deserving of being the love interest.

Give us Starlord praising the ground Gamora walks on.

Give us Peter falling slowly but immensely and deeply head over heels in love with MJ.

Give us Thor (and/or Loki) having a big ass goofy crush on Valkyrie.

Show us that beautiful Black Girl Magic. Show us how women of color are just as much deserving to be loved and adored by the superheroes. Show us that black women can be badass AND be in love. Show us they can be desired, protected, fought for, idolized and romanced.

Show us that in a major franchise with millions of fans all over the world that women of color can be represented right.

A Note To Autistic Boys 💕

[note: this includes trans boys, non-binary boys and boys who aren’t sure if they’re boys]

Your stimming is not obnoxious or intrusive. It is just your way of expressing your emotions. Don’t feel guilty about it.

When you infodump to a girl or a femme, you are not mansplaining. You’re just infodumping, a beautiful thing. It isn’t unfeminist to infodump.

Your traditionally masculine special interests do not contribute to toxic masculinity or male privilege. They’re just your special interests.

Your traditionally feminine interests do not make you a “sissy” or a girl (this one goes especially to trans boys). They’re just your special interests.

You are not being “disruptive” by talking loudly, not understanding neurotypical social skills or excusing yourself out of class. These are just things that some autistic people do. It doesn’t make you any less valid.

You are not inherently violent or aggressive by avoiding eye contact (especially MOC). It’s just an autistic trait, that neurotypical society may demonize but still isn’t inherently negative.

Don’t make anybody feel that you aren’t strong, beautiful or good, because I promise you, you are 💕

[anybody can reblog this, whether you’re an Autistic boy or not]

My dear trans kids, 

Using body lotion or deodorant etc. that represents your gender identity can be one of those little things that make you feel happy when you are in the closet and can’t take any “big” steps yet. 

If you live together with someone else, you may worry that they will question why you use those products (especially when it would be unsafe if they found out you’re trans). Here are some possible excuses why you use them: 

General:

- “I get headaches from the scent of most deodorants, this is the only one I can tolerate”  

- “I’m allergic to (something that’s usually in those products) and this is the best one I found that doesn’t have it”  

- “I love to try out new things/I got bored of all (..) products smelling the same” 

- If gendered body care products make you dysphoric, you might like to use the ones for sensitive skin, they’re usually fragrance-free and gender neutral. Using those will (usually) need no explanation or excuse at all.  

- “I noticed my skin feels less greasy/irritated/itchy after using (…) products” 

- “I got this one by mistake/because my usual one was out of stock - and I fell in love with it!”  

For trans boys: 

-  “Men’s deodorant works better/is stronger”

- “Girly products are often overpriced, this one is not in a pink package but it works just as well and is way cheaper!” (You may have heard of this called “pink tax”) 

- For trans girls: 

- “Men’s products just smell too strong/I wanted a softer, more subtle scent” 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

PS: If using products that are labeled as the gender you were assigned at birth makes you dysphoric or not really depends on the person (and even for one person, may depend on the day or the specific product), so it can be anything from nice but by no means important to me to necessary for me to get through the day - and no matter where you stand on this, you’re “trans enough”!  If you read this and think “I don’t care about that at all” or even “But I like the way (..)’s products smell even tho I do not identify as (..)” or similar, that’s great, too!

We don’t need boys to get along…! Is that bad?
