not proud of these ones at all

Listen I hope Niall knows he put out an absolute amazing album and that he has really proved everyone wrong. He is so talented, every song has great music, lyrics, he sings them with so much emotion I can’t even begin to describe. They all makes you wanna go back and listen and I am just so proud of this boy. Flicker is a masterpiece and I hope he gets all the credit he deserves. Buy it, stream, tell your friends. He deserves all this.

Hi everyone! I’m very excited to participate in the amazing @infinitejedilove‘s Jinnobi Challenge. This challenge is all about celebrating the Obi-Wan/Qui-Gon pairing, and I’m all for that! I decided to do something a bit different and draw these two with tattoos – which were a lot of fun to design! I like the idea of Obi-Wan having his arms tattooed, while Qui-Gon has some pretty awesome leg tattoos. Stylistically, their tattoos look a little different from each other’s, but both Jedi have the same tattoo on the top of one foot – perhaps a symbol of life-commitment to each other? My favorite tattoos are Qui-Gon’s neck tattoo, the tree on his lower leg, the star on Obi-Wan’s shoulderblade and his hip tattoo which depicts a flock of birds in front of a Saturn-like planet. Obi-Wan’s a recent Jedi Knight so there’s no padawan braid, and after much struggle I decided to draw Qui-Gon’s hair pulled back in a bun rather than down around his shoulders. I actually really like the end result. :)

This drawing came together wonderfully (thanks to lots of picture references) and I’m kind of in love with it. Although the tattoos give a more ‘edgy’ look, I feel like Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are still very much themselves, from the individual ways they sit to the way they look at each other. I imagine that this is a quiet time before a new mission and they are (of course) spending it together.

I can’t really put into words how I’m feeling right now but I’m so fucking proud of niall. I knew the songs and the lyrics before the album came out because I’m extremely impatient and I’ve been listening to shitty low quality audios for weeks. I’ve been waiting for this album since this town came out and all I can say is that it’s absolutely amazing. this is exactly the music that I love and I love every song so much. it’s 1am and I can’t stop smiling because I’m sooo proud of niall. we all know that he deserved to have more solos in one direction and even though I miss 1d, I’m really glad that niall can show the world how talented and amazing he is. I always knew that he was special and extremely talented. he’s my fave since 2012 and now I’m listening to his album and I don’t have to wait for his 3 seconds solo. I know niall doesn’t care about the charts but this boy deserves to be #1 in every country and he deserves all the awards. I love him so much.

Hi everyone, we are proud to be in support of Spirit Day on October 19th. I think it’s really important for everyone to understand that no matter who you are, where you come from, what religion, race, sexual orientation, doesn’t matter. You are all human beings, we are all human beings, and we should stand together as one society, as one species, because we can support each other and we can make each other better in every way, as long as we inspire each other, choose to be inspired, and choose kindness. So, be human, and be human with each other.” - Dominic Sherwood

To the people saying we “gave Richard Spencer what he wanted” and “should’ve stayed home”, you are wrong. Richard Spencer left Gainesville with his tail between his legs because we completely outnumbered him and he was unable to achieve what he came here to do. The bravery, oneness, and love I witnessed today brought me to tears at one point. I looked around at all the people surrounding me and realized that that yes, even though there is so much hate in the world, the power of LOVE conquers. I am so proud of the city of Gainesville for coming together and standing up for what is right. I’ll never forget this day. Here are some of my favorite shots of the day:

anonymous asked:

Hi! You are so important in the fandom, because it sometimes really feels like this fandom is not okay with the closet or that it is something shameful, which super harmful I think. Because it is not about being "proud" or whatever, sometimes you just don't want to disclose your sex life to others. Because whether people like it or not, coming out always means that others are going to think about your sex life. No one does this with straight couples. I don't know if I'm making any sense.

yes you’re absolutely making sense love!!! The way people feel entitled to LGBTQ couples disclosing and sharing their private lives/sex lives with the media is really worth interrogating. Like we should not have to do that, and H and L should not have to do that, in order to be considered rightfully proud, or brave. All LGBTQ people, closet or not, are brave and capable of being proud. 

I think in this fandom at least there’s an element to some larries wanting to feel validated or “right” about having known and seen all this time, AND some larries who feel entitled to that information because whether or not they realize it, they view H and L’s private relationship as a fan fiction plot they deserve to consume. 

Yes, we support H and L and many people here have been doing so for years. But that doesn’t mean we’re allowed glimpses into their private life together if they don’t want that anymore. That’s not the price of supporting LGBTQ artists. 

A lil Keith theory+ character analysis (kinda) ALSO LANCE IS KEITH’S STABILITY EXPLAINED

Ya girl is back with a theory that quite honestly breaks my heart. But it has nesttled itself into my head and oh boy, oh boy does this make me sad. 

BPD, or borderline personality disorder is a mental illness a lot of people don’t really understand. Its also pretty hard to diagnose for some reason and often confused with bipolar depression and autism. 

Lets take a look at the symptoms; 

  • Having an unstable or dysfunctional self-image or a distorted sense of self (how one feels about one’s self).

    Keith definitely has a problem with feeling worthless. We all know that Lance has problems with insecurity, but what goes over a lot of people’s heads is that Keith does too. He assumes people dont like him, the only thing he’s actually sort of proud off are his flying skills. He doesn’t want to lead Voltron cause he doesn’t think he’s any good as a leader, and while he’s not as good at it as Shiro, he defnitely has some leader qualities but he doesn’t see them himself. He came a long way in season 3 in a very short time but he didn’t see it. 

    And his self-sacrifice at through-out of season 4? It could just be the blade of marmora influencing him with their “the mission is more important than the individual” crap, but I don’t think it is. He goes back for other memembers and even tries to fight Kolivan to save the guy when he would maybe be able to throw the guy to safety but never run back himself. And the final eppisode? Keith cares more about anyone and anything than himself. He’s literally willing to die to save anyone else. 

  • Feelings of isolation, boredom and emptiness.

    We all know Keith suffers from not really feeling a connection with others. He’s literally been on a ship in space with six other people for God knows how long and they still describe him as the lone wolf, he still trains on his own all the time. And the common misconception is that he wants to be alone. He really, really, really doesn’t. I cannot stress enough how much this boy would love to join in on the fun all the time, to not be so far away from the rest of them, but he just can’t.  He’s too scarred he’ll be rejected or something along those lines so instead he just… Lone wolfs it. 
  • Difficulty feeling empathy for others. 

    I decided against highlighting this one because we haven’t really seen a lot of it. Although, there have been a few cases of this, like when Pidge tried to leave. In my personal opinion, I don’t think he can summon the empathy very well unless he’s going through or has been through the same thing. 

    When he and Allura went out to space because they both though Zarkon was tracking them he showed quite a bit of empathy towards her but that was also because they were in the same boat (no pun intended) he was sort of going through the same thing. So he understood. When Lance came to him with his issues of insecurrity he got it because he’s scarred of being kicked out too. Of not being a valueable member to the team. 

    But when Pidge wanted to go find her family he couldn’t relate. Cause he’s never really had a family to look for. We don’t know what happened with his dad, whether he died or just up and left like his mum did. But seeming it’s more logical, lets assume his dad did die, he doesn’t know his mother, so… He doesn’t understand Pidge wanting to look for her brother. 

    You may argue that he had Shiro to look for, but if you watch the first episode of season one its pretty clear he wasn’t looking for Shiro. He’s surprised to see him there and he was tracking Voltron before that. Finding Shiro was merely conicidental.

  • A history of unstable relationships that can change drastically from intense love and idealization to intense hate. 

    Again, I didn’t want to highlight this one because, well, we don’t know enough about his backstory to be able to judge if he’s had unstable relationships in the past. 

    However, you cant tell me he doesn’t have and intense idealization of Shiro that kinda turned into a sort of hate (but not really) when he was left in charge of Voltron. But that’s all I got on that one. He doesn’t really seem to hate people or idealise them (apart from Shiro) Some may argue that he hated Lance in season one, but honestly, I call bullshit on that. Annoyance, yes. Hate, no. 

    Annoyed neutrality. 

  • A persistent fear of abandonment and rejection, including extreme emotional reactions to real and even perceived abandonment

    I feel like I dont have to go into this…. So I wont… AT LEAST NOT THE OVERLY OBVIOUS STUFF. 

    Okay so, our boy has abandonment issues. We all knew that. But I honestly don’t think y’all are seeing just how far this stuff actually goes.  When he though Lance hated him (EXACTLY HOW CANNON THE HATE IS IS UP FOR DISSCUSSION, FIGHT ME ANNONS) he really didn’t want much to do with him. Even made a few jabs at him so that he could reject Lance first. 

    With the B.O.M however, we see him literally almost work himself to death during the trails in fear of being rejected to the group. The boy has major issues with self esteem, which is probably why he did so well at the garrison, cause he needs those results to feel okay about himself. He doesn’t think he’s good enough so he works towards being better, yes its pragmatic, but ultimately he’ll end up…. oh I don’t know… sacrificing himself. 

  • Intense, highly changeable moods that can last for several days or for just a few hours. 

    Again, I didn’t highlight this one because, well I don’t have too much to back it up other than that he seems very easy to upset. A little comment like that he’s the lone wolf, even though he’s trying to fit in can really get to him. And just… can people stop hurting my baby please? 

  • Strong feelings of anxiety, worry and depression

    Honestly, this is another one I don’t feel like I have to explain. It just, Keith is a guy that worries a lot, and he definitely has anxiety when it comes to interacting with others. From the way he talks about his mother to the way he looked at his blade when he was figuring out his Galra identity, and the look on his face when the others were pissed off at him in season 4, I think depression is definitely a concept he touches on. Maybe not fullblown, actual depression, but I think he has… issues with feeling like a depressed person feels sometimes. 

    But he’s never actually vocalized this, so this may be me projecting. Though he does show some general symptoms fo depression. 

  • Impulsive, risky, self-destructive and dangerous behaviors, including reckless driving, drug or alcohol abuse and having unsafe sex

    I just, r e c k l e s s  d r i v i n g 
    Yes, he’s a skilled pilot but you cannot tell me he doesn’t throw caution to the wind a lot. 
    Also remember that king he held hostage? 
    Also remember how he worked himself to death during the B.O.M trials?
    Also remember the self sacrifice? 
    Also remember the putting himself in danger to safe his teammates? 
    Also remember how he ran away with Allura in the middle of the night because he THOUGHT he MIGHT be getting tracked and left the team unable to form Voltron without telling anyone?

  • Hostility

    “What? Keith is a total hothead”- Lance, 2016. 
    No but, Keith has said himself that he can be this way.  Even Shiro has pointed it out to him. This one is kinda also just very self explanitory. 

  • Unstable career plans, goals and aspirations

    Well I mean, his plans do kinda seem to be all over the place. He got kicked out of the Garrison… and tracked alien life for a year??? 

    And other than finding Shiro in season 2-3 and joining the blade he never really has a long term plan. His only goal is defeating the Galra, it doesnt go deeper than that. He doesnt necessarily want to go home or settle down. He has no plan. He just kinda floats through life.



With BPD you have these things called modi. Modi are… in simple terms, fragments of your personality. There are five modi, the protector, the strict/punishing parent, the abandoned/abused child, the angry/impulsive child and the healthy grown up. Everybody sort of has these a little bit, but when you have BPD your healthy adult mode is a little… under developed/overwhelmed by the other modi. 

I personally also suffer from BPD and I honestly see a lot of these modi in Keith. The protector is the main one that seems to be present with him. (I also have this one, I call mine richard/dick for short). The protector’s main job is keeping people at arm’s lenght, its hard to get past this guy, esspecially if he’s the main dude running the show. Keith’s protector seems to work a lot with the impulsive child which is why he has such dificulty being a leader. 

I want to give an example here of how Keith’s modi seem to coexist; 

So lets take the scene where he just started leading Voltron and he chased Lotor into the gassplanet. So, he has an objective; get Lotor. His strict parrent modi will lock onto this WITH A FUCKING DEATH GRIP. It doesn’t matter what he has to do, he needs to get his objective. The impulsive child then takes over with the the stirct parent fueling him by telling him he needs to do this, when the team tells him to stop the protector shrugs them off. 

Later, once he failed, and lost everyone, the child and the protector regress, leaving the abandoned child and the strict parrent to yell at it and make the child feel like shit about itself. This is when Keith is vulnerable. That’s why Lance could approach him, and he knows it. And while acknowledging that Keith fucked up, he appeals to the healthy adult in his system to try and get him to move on. 

THAT is why Lance is so good for him and why he stablizes Keith mentally. He is able to tell him that he made a mistake while still accesing the healthy grown-up. Shiro, on the other hand, doesn’t do that. He is constantly trying to shape Keith to be better and sometimes, yes he gets through to Keith’s healthy adult and stuff (patience yeilds focus), but mostly he appeals to the strict parent telling him to be better. 

It doesn’t surprise me that that’s why he saw Shiro during the Galra trials. He really, really, really wants his approval. He might even see Shiro as the strict modi if he were to personify it. 

I hope you’re as sad about this as I am, because it’s two a.m and this suddenly hit me like 20 minutes ago and I’ve been keeping my emotions in check ever since.

Day #3 of my new resolve (I need to give it a name) cracked badly; it had started out so well too. After a dead humpday, my exercise clinics were bubbly on Thursday. I started a new client who also happens to have UC (well, had, she’s just had a proctectomy years after a colectomy/ileostomy). She’s very bright and positive, despite all the stuff going on. 😃

The PR officer visited the new clinic to say hi (and get a selfie, along with one of my students). She was excited to tell me she has lost 13kg since I last gave her a pep talk and is taking every opportunity to slip physical activity into her day. I am proud and happy for her. 😀

I was feeling a little low on energy in the evening but a walk with the dog turned into a ‘mainly-run’ over uneven ground and three sets of stair climbing - a step in the direction of my trail running goal (pardon the pun). 😉

Then I stuffed up. 😕

I drank wine. Not one glass. Half a bottle. Along with a chunk of cheese, while prepping dinner. The only resolve I managed was chucking the half glass I brought to the table down the drain. But I suspect that was a visceral response from my body overriding my brain. 😦

I am suffering this morning. Bad diarrhoea. Fool. Idiot. Weakling. The absence of alcohol won’t cure UC, but its impact on symptoms is huge, as I’ve just demonstrated after four nights of booze control followed by a night of stupidity. (I actually started the alcohol part of this resolution on Sunday, before I added the trail goal on Tuesday.) 😣

I need more support from The Husb to not buy it, even if I give in and ask when he goes to buy beer. He could join me on alcohol-free nights. We would save money as well. I can turn down wine when I am out but it is hard when it’s in the home. 😞

I have a busy day ahead. I will be promoting the clinic at a function tonight and will be on the water. It is a new day. I will fill the cracks in my resolve and start again, albeit with a sore tummy. I can do this. I have to do this. ☺

Hey I’ve just come up with Temperance Trail as a name. It combines my trail running goal with my wine-avoidance resolution. 😊

You did it, Anon! I’m so glad you did!

Days like that can be incredibly hard to get through. I’ve had a lot of that myself, so even though I don’t know your exact situation, I definitely sympathise with you in that. Sometimes just finding that one thing to look forward to is enough to get you through it all, and I’m so proud of you for getting there. If you ever want to talk about it more, my inbox is always open, but even if not you did a VERY great job!

Hi Sweets! 💞 congrats on the milestone!! Could I please have a drabble with my love, Peter Parker? To include a bit of personal info, I’m super cuddly, bubbly but like anyone, can struggle sometimes. Please write anything super fluffy, love you! 💜

Hello yes, I LIVE for fluff and you sound so cute and sweet! this was a lot of fun to write! ALSO I’m so proud of this drabble & it really makes my heart swell! Thank you so much for sending this! Love you lots!! ♡

To say it was love at first sight was an understatement: you fell in love at first word, touch, and embrace. With Peter Parker, it had happened all at once. The moment he slipped his warm, soft hands into yours and tugged you to bring your body closer to him, you thought you were a goner. But then he smiles before whispering low and your heart flutters when you hear, “You’re so beautiful, I’m at a loss for words.” You almost forgot to breathe.

Peter Parker loved your sweet smiles and the way your laughs echoed against the walls like stars twinkling and bursting at a simple touch. Every cuddle was filled with long squeezes and small kisses to the back of your hand. You’d giggle and tell him that you were ticklish there, and he’d just blow raspberries into the spot, the crook of your elbow and underneath your left ear. At that point you were ready to get up and fight - Peter argued that he’d clearly beat you, with being Spider-man and all. You punch him lightly in the stomach and he clutches his insides, mimicking a pained expression while you posed in standard superhero fashion. At the end of it all you would both fall to the comfort of the warm bed, laughing the way children play carefree as a breeze enters from the windowsill.

Intertwining your fingers together, you lay with him and for a moment there’s silence. The only sound comes from the faint whistle of a tea kettle and the rhythm of his breathing matching with yours. You think for a moment, somewhat lost in your own thoughts as you let your mind drift out, like ocean waves colliding into each other. You want time to stop so badly, wishing for only the two of you to exist in the world. You start to worry about the future and what it holds, hesitant of how much things can change.

“Peter?”

“Yea, [Y/N]?”

“…I’m scared that in a year’s time, I might not be next to you right now.”

Peter looks over to you and gazes into your eyes, a knowing look growing on his face as he brushes a stray hair away from your cheek. Light hands make reassuring strokes down your hair and you sigh into his chest as he brings you close. He chuckles, murmuring into the top of your head.

“[Y/N], I know for certain in a year’s time that you and I will still be here, on this bed in each other’s arms. Wanna know how I know?”

Unsure, you mumble, “How?” before he gently kisses your forehead and smiles at you.

“Because I know the one thing that stays constant in this equation and never changes is the fact that I love you. I love you and your bubbly laughs and the way your hugs make me feel at home. I love the fact that you bring me so much joy, I can’t possibly imagine the idea of you not next to me every moment, every second.”

Your heart fills with happiness and you bring him closer to you, arms wrapping around his wide chest and hiding your face into his shirt. “I love you too,” you whisper and he hums in contentment as he moves his hand in gentle circles along your back.

To say you fell in love was an understatement: You fell in love and will continue falling in love. And with Peter Parker, it will happen everyday.

I don’t know how many hours I spent on that Nadia drawing.

I lost track bc drawing the line art alone was spread out between several different drawing sessions over the last couple days. I suffered with posing and perspective (yall saw my “ARMS ARE CANCELLED post right?). A lot of my efforts just got totally erased. Eventually, I had to give up the original composition and decided to go with just drawing the Countess herself.

For this piece, I wanted to do the best job I could because I don’t feel that I gave Nadia the attention she deserved in the Lucio Sweater comics. Thus, I spent 3 hours of my night on the shading ALONE - carefully filling sections and blending and layering values until I was done.

I’m VERY proud of this one. VERY. I think I’m going to stare at her for a while and just marvel and wonder how I did it at all.

I just want to be as transparent as possible because I used to get frustrated over how long it took to finish a single drawing - it’s really easy to underestimate the amount of time and effort go into creating art because often we only see the finished product - especially on fast paced media like Tumblr or Instagram.

THIS TOOK DAYS. I WANTED TO QUIT. MANY TIMES. I *DID* QUIT MANY TIMES. 

THAT’S OK. 

Keep going!

And eventually the piece will be finished.

Oh dang, now I gotta think about that one…lemme look into that.

“Victor, how long has it been?” Chris asks, eyebrow raised.

He rubs the back of his neck and avoids Chris’s gaze. “Chris–”

“How. Long. Has. It. Been?”

“…A year.”

“A ye–oh, Vitya.” Chris looks him up and down before smirking. “You need this.”

“No, I don’t,” Victor replies. He grabs the broom that’s leaning up against a nearby wall and absentmindedly begins sweeping the dirt-caked floor.

“You really do,” Mila chimes.

“She’s not wrong,” Chris interjects.

“You’re all disgusting,” Yuri mutters under his breath before plucking his phone from his pocket and scrolling through his text messages. “But if it’ll get you to stop being a lovesick idiot, maybe they’re right.”

-Excerpt from Love and Gelato 

I personally like this part because I really adore writing Victor interacting with people outside of Yuuri at times, like Chris, Yuri, & Mila, in this case! Also this whole part of the fic was really fun to write in general because I love all of their banter during Victor’s “intervention” about his endless pining, haha

M: Already answered! 

S: Any fandom tropes you can’t resist?

Omg, mutual pining, fake dating, and friends to lovers are my LOVES

THANK YOU FOR THE ASK OLLIE!

So the Indian Supreme Court passed a judgement today which basically states that freedom of sexual orientation is now a fundamental right in the country. And any discrimination on basis of sexual orientation will now be taken as unconstitutional and against the law.

This from a country where homosexuality was illegal till date. Like, today I am literally shook™ but so, so proud of India.
