not-even-kidding-i-saved-it-like-that

For the record: i’m not hating on jensen or danneel for choosing the names (whether these are the real ones or not) they chose! Those kids are their kids and absolutely none of us have a right to insult/judge them or the babies danneel just gave birth to. The kids are gonna be freakin’ adorable either way and they sound like a li’l group of bby superheroes so, hey. i’m ready to hear all about justice, zeppelin, and arrow saving the world with the powers of CUTE. uwu

If anything, these names just prove that jensen and danneel are a bigger pair of n e r ds than we already knew, and that’s just precious af tbh. 

also if jensen doesn’t say “Zeppelin rules” in reference to his child at some point then WHAT EVEN IS THE POINT honestly.

imagine me 2 years ago praising the lord for the existence of Angela Merkel but now I really do see Angela Merkel as our lord and saviour, like I’m not even kidding, she’s the only politician I trust these days and I was so happy when she decided to re-run again, like i seriously believe she’s the only person who can save this world we’re in now

remember these, kids? they used to be so popular on deviantART way back in like 2008 and i remember i used to be so pumped about doing one, though i never really did. so, last night i even had a dream about doing one of these, so i put together some scenarios and here we are, haha! feel free to reblog or save the template for yourself if it catches your fancy! 

please tag your finished meme as  harteus meme so that i and others can find your artwork easily and collected. <3

i saw this image on tumblr and i couldn’t resist 

  • what she says: I'm fine
  • what she means: I will never be okay with the fact that dumbledore awarded all those "last minute points" to gryffindor at the end of the philosophers stone. like first of all, slytherins aren't all fucking evil just because Draco malfoy is an asshole. all you're teaching those kids is that if you work hard in school and follow school rules and do your best to win the house cup by being good students, you will still lose anyway because harry potter broke hundreds of school rules and saved the fuckin day so clearly all of gryffindor should be rewarded and all of slytherin should lose even though they've been working all year to be the best they good be. another thing is that these are kids. and the only slytherins you ever hear about in the books are the mean ones (which are about five individuals might I add in a house of about 150 students) like honestly, when james potter and sirius black bully kids and beat people up its seen as "rough housing" and "a harmless rivalry" but when draco malfoy does the same exact thing he's "evil" because he's a slytherin. slytherin house is canonically discriminated against and I will not stand for it. equal rights for slytherin 2015
But seriously, this show just-

like I knew Steven would have no trouble putting on “women’s clothing” in public cuz it’s STEVEN and what even are gender roles but

He’s just like “I’m gonna save the day” slaps on heels, a crop top and a matching skirt, and sings a mindless song about fame while throwing glitter into an audience that adores him.

Nobody shamed him for wearing or doing something “girly.” He was just a kid doing a fun act in the talent show, (and slaying it tbh,) and there was no negativity in that.

Steven Universe shows so simply how easy it could be for society to not give a shit about these things, and how happy it could make people. 

“I met John in India while studying in a Hindi language program. He did all sorts of exciting things. He was from San Francisco and worked for all these super lefty politicians. In his twenties, he pretended to be a teenager so he could go back to high school and write an article about it. He did philanthropic work in African rain forests. Life with him was like a long vacation. Every day was an adventure. He’d literally wake up every morning and say: ‘Today’s an adventure.’ We dated for nine years. But he didn’t want to get married. He didn’t want to have kids. And even though he wanted to save humanity on a macro scale, he just wasn’t that warm. I never felt like I could come home in a way. So eventually I ended it. I met my current husband online. He was ‘all in’ from the very beginning. He doesn’t live in a rainforest, but he feels like home. If my sister sends me a picture of my niece wearing huge sunglasses, he doesn’t roll his eyes. He laughs even harder than I do.”

The first time I looked at Clarke drawing Lexa I busted out in laughter. I WAS LAUGHING! Because how fucking ridiculous is this. Like seriously guys are you fucking kidding me LMFAO! First we get the reunion filled with angst and hatred, then we get the “You should kill each other” but they can’t bullshit. Then we get “Clarke elevates herself, she’s special”, then we get the fucking bow and swearing fealty and shit. Then we get Lexa letting Clarke know her people (their people) will be safe even after she’s dead. Then we get Clarke almost getting herself killed trying to save Lexa’s ass. Then we get Lexa defeating the big bad and Clarke looking all proud and amazed at her. Then we get Lexa coming over to Clarke Griffin’s fucking bedroom at butt fuck midnight to just say hi whilst wearing the silkiest fucking nightgown WITH A GOD DAMN SLIT UP TO HER BELLY BUTTON and fucking GLITTER. We get Clarke patching her up and them flirting and smiling at each other. WE GET RESHOP HEDA AND GOODNIGHT AMBASSADOR. Then we get a damn chillaxed ride on horses where they both basically go YOU’RE AMAZING NO YOU NO WE ARE and them pieces of shits couldn’t stop smiling while looking over at each other those homos. THEN we fucking get Lexa trusting Clarke to make peace with Skaikru even after they’ve murdered 300 innocent Trikru. And you know what happens after that? Can you guess? LEXA DOESNT START A WAR BECAUSE SHE LISTENS TO WHAT CLARKE IS PROPOSING THEY DO INSTEAD AND SHE RESPECTS THAT AND ITS WHAT LEXA HAS WANTED ALL ALONG AND SHE FINALLY HAS THE DAMN STRENGTH TO MAKE THIS KIND OF DECISION BECAUSE CLARKE IS THERE WITH HER!

So I thought that was good. That was it. We’re done. Our ship is set. And then holy fucking WHAT are you SHITTING me. I open up Tumblr and I see Clarke DrAwInG Lexa as she sleeps. Clarke is sitting there. With a drawing utensil and paper, staring at Lexa as she sleeps. And she decides to draw her. She is drawing Lexa.

I CANT STOP LAUGHING BECAUSE WHAT IS LIFE WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING? Is this normal? Is this how it works normally for m/f pairings and I just don’t understand it?

I… what…

Ford is Really a Damsel in Distress

You know, for all of Ford’s awesomeness he actually hasn’t ever saved the day, not even once. Instead he usually gets himself captured or incapacitated, leaving someone else to bail him out. This is just a pattern we’ve noticed with Ford.

He got trapped in the portal, and even though he looked extremely epic coming out of the portal,

it never would have been possible without Stan. 

Even though Ford looked so cool in Dungeons, Dungeons and More Dungeons

 he still gets captured by the game characters, and Stan has to save the day.

Stan yet again saves the day in The Stanchurian Candidate when all Ford did was fix a light bulb and give the kids a magic tie.

In Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future, Ford does all this awesome stuff like:

But in the end, he gets captured by alien drones and has to be saved by Dipper.

And the crowning moment of fail is in Weirdmegeddon Part 1.

There’s like no way he’ll be able to save himself, leaving the other characters to pick up the slack.

All in all, Ford looks capable and badasss, but he’s really just a damsel in distress.

Unlikely things to see or hear in Star Wars. [video]

There’s a lot of frames so if it takes a while to load, that’s why…

okay but do you ever cry because Haymitch Abernathy

like do you ever just stop and think what it must have been like for him to have to mentor kids and watch them die, year after year, like the first year he was probably like “I survived, kids from 12 can survive, so maybe these two can” and he throws his whole heart and soul into it only to watch them die within the first couple hours

and the second year he’s like “that won’t happen again, no way” so he tries even harder and he coaches them and teaches them and then watches them die

and it goes on year after year, and sometimes he thinks “I know what my mistake was last year, I emphasized strength too much and cunning not enough” and then next year it’s vice versa and he tries different tactics but no matter what he does, the kids he’s trying to save always, always die

one year there’s a really smart girl who does really well and for the first time in years he has a glimmer of hope, and he teaches her everything he can think of and spends as much time with her to prepare her as physically possible, and she does well, so well, she makes it all the way to the last three Tributes only to die in some really stupid, bad luck, sort of way

so he starts refusing to go, but of course the Capitol won’t let him, they drag him out onto the stage and force him to go along with it and no matter how much he drinks to numb the pain it’s never enough

they can make him go but they can’t make him try, so eventually he stops trying

and the worst part is, he doesn’t even notice a difference, the kids still die whether he tries or not

this goes on for twenty-four years

and then Katniss and Peeta show up and he’s just like “lol nope” but then

then he realizes they actually have a chance, and he’s thought that before, there are other kids who have had a chance but still died, but Haymitch still picks himself back up, puts himself back together, starts approaching sponsors and trying to help them in the arena even though he knows they’re probably both going to die

but they actually win, and now they’re alive, but they’re stuck as mentors like him, and he’s honestly not sure which would be worse, because they’re alive but now they’re going to be broken down just as systematically and terribly as he was

IDK, I have a lot of feels, do you ever just cry because Haymitch Abernathy

I’m sick of men trying to give women advice. Y'all don’t even treat the women in your family with respect so how you gone try to school somebody ?

- y'all women need to respect yourself and save your body for your husband.
- this why you can’t keep a man, you always wanna argue .
- stop wearing weave and love yourself.
- too many women wanna be the head of the house, that’s why you single.

Like, shut the fuck up. You niggas be out here fucking 3+ women, got kids you don’t even see, be taking pictures with your dick print showing, walking around with no shirt ( or job ). Then got the nerve to tell a woman what she should be doing.

There’s no one way a woman needs to act. Besides, the way she fucking wants.

(4/6) “I want to be a pediatric surgeon. Our friend Mark is a surgeon and he told me all about it. Being a pediatric surgeon will be hard because you never want to hurt kids. You just want to cuddle them and hold them. But saving them is most important so it’s something you have to do. Also blood doesn’t bother me like it bothers my brother—and he’s sixteen! One time he got blood work done and he was so scared that he curled his toes and his hands. It doesn’t bother me though. I even had my surgeon film my surgery for me because I wanted to see his techniques. When I asked him, he was like: ‘Nobody’s ever asked that before.’ And I said: ‘Please? We can use my brother’s GoPro.’”



Grace’s life was saved by an experimental antibody that was funded by a group of parents who raised $2,000,000. We are currently holding our own fundraiser to help the team at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in their fight against pediatric cancer. This money funds the science that saves the lives of children. There are three days left. Over 35,000 people have donated so far and we have raised over $1.3 million. It would be amazing if we could reach 50,000 donations by the end of the series. Even if it’s a small amount, please consider donating: http://bit.ly/1TpFcdy

  • “Graham Nolan, you were named for a guy your sister had a thing with but at least we picked the one who saved her mother’s life and believed in her and got her a job instead of knocking her up and sending her to jail”
  • “Killian Nolan, you were named for your sister’s boyfriend which yes is kind of weird but at least we picked the one who’s always been there for her and saved our lives and he’s also Captain Hook which let’s face it is pretty cool”
  • “James Nolan, you were named for my brother who was kind of a jerk but at least he never hurt your sister”
  • “Leo Nolan, you were named for your grandfather whose choice in second wife was a bit questionable and whose treatment of said wife was also a bit questionable but at least he never hurt your sister”
  • “Leroy Nolan, you were named after a dwarf but hey it’s a cool name and he’s a cool guy who actually helped us a lot and never hurt your sister”
  • “Charles Nolan, you were named after a guy I met once long ago who convinced me not to give up on love and who also inadvertently helped save your sister from a dungeon and from never existing”
  • “Jake Nolan, you were named after no one in particular because we figured that just like your sister you ought to have your own name without any weird baggage or references to someone who hurt your sister”
  • “Luke Nolan, you were named after Luke Skywalker in Star Wars because he’s awesome and also your sister pretended to be Princess Leia one time and my little geeky heart exploded with feels but don’t tell your mother because she just thought that it’s a nice name”
  • “David Nolan Jr, you were named after me because let’s face it I’m pretty awesome”
LISTEN UP

DO YOU GUYS JUST EVER SIT AND WONDER WHY IN THE HELL THE SEVEN WERE CHOSEN THE WAY THEY WERE???

Cause like if I were a God who was being held captive by my own mother on mount Olympus not even being able to help or communicate with my own kids who are supposed to save the world I think I would have chosen the seven a liiiiiiiiiiiittle more carefully. But hey as established before gods are dumb however I digress.

If someone asked me to pick the seven I would have chosen like so
Percy
Annabeth
Jason
Reyna
Hylla
Thalia
Nico
And the satyr that should have went would of course be Grover

NOW LET ME EXPLAIN SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Now let it be known that I love every single one of the seven that WAS chosen. I love piper and her charmspeak, I love frank and his adorable ness, I love hazel and witchy powers and Leo with his dragon-

But they should not have been the seven. It was nothing wrong with them it was just that others were more qualified. Piper and Leo were only demigods for what? a week? before they had to go on a quest? Frank wasn’t even claimed yet and hazel was only at camp for a month. Piper could hardly fight (again not her fault) she even too scared to use her knife for half of the series so she only relied on her charmspeak which we saw on some monsters didn’t work and the cornucopia which to monster, flying fruit isn’t too effective it’s just a little weird. Leo can’t fight either he relies on fire but again some monsters are immune to fire, and although he is a great builder, sometimes building something will take too long especially when you need that thing quick (people tend to move slower when pressures are high) hazel had basic fighting and her gem thing but that wouldn’t be enough, she figured our her witchy powers much later in the series. Frank also had basic fighting and arrows but close range frank can’t use his arrows and basic fighting isn’t enough to fight monsters!!! You need real fighting when monsters are actually out to hurt them.

So why these seven instead?

There’s still even amount of Greek to roman (Greek: Percy, Annabeth, Nico, Thalia) (roman: Reyna, Hylla, Jason)

Percy and Annabeth are an easy one
First they would encourage Greeks to be allies. They have been on a billion quests before TOGETHER they obviously know what they’re doing, can do it under pressure, and can do it well. They saved the world once already what’s twice? Percy has awesome water powers but he luckily does not rely on them (he would get exhausted!) He’s good with sword and knows many weaknesses to many monsters. Annabeth knows this and since Annabeth doesn’t have powers she makes up for it with awesome fighting proficiency. Annabeth is smart and can handle herself and can fight or talk her way out of any situation. Next.

Jason
Well DUH. I’m sorry but Jason is good. He’s been a demigod since he was two! That’s longer than Annabeth. As we’ve been told, Jason has also been on many quest and Jason is also a fantastic fighter. He’s like Percy in this sense where he has great powers but he knows when to use them. Jason is also really sweet if things got heated I think him and Annabeth could handle it and remind everyone why they’re there in the first place (“because the gods are dicks?!”“no Percy to save the world”) Jason along with Reyna would encourage Romans to be allies

Reyna, here’s where things get interesting
Honestly if you lived in new Rome and THREE preators just up and went on a quest together wouldn’t you support that quest? Also the whole reason Octavian attacked camp half blood was because he was left in charge and Jason and Percy would NEVER let Octavian be in charge of all of their friends (“Octavian you’re in charge” “um no that’s a really bad idea Reyna” “hm you’re right nvm then lol hey you you’re in charge”)… Or something like that. Reyna honestly should have been chosen. It’s like two annabeths but this one is scarier and more lethal. She can keep literally anyone in line she was the best fighter in new Rome. The only who beat her is Percy (GOOD THING HES ON THE LIST) also REYNA HAS LIKE THIS BADASS ENERGY TRANSFERRING POWER THING??? LIKE DO YOU KNOW HOW USEFUL THAT IS IF THEYRE LIKE FIGHTING A MONSTER THAT CAN ONLY BE BEAT BY LIKE WATER BUT PERCY IS ALREADY LIKE SUPER WORN OUT SO REYNAS JUST “BEEP BOOP FLOWER GLEAM AND GLOW LOL YOURE ALL BETTER” LIKE GUYS THAT WOULD BE SO USEFUL WHY WASNT SHE ON THIS QUEST.

Hylla
CAN YOU SAY AMAZON ALLIES? CAN YOU SAY SISTER BONDING?! Hylla was such a cool character and would have been like everyone’s older sister which would have been so cute. She a great fighter (you don’t get called queen of the amazons for nothing) and I felt like throughout this entire series Reyna always felt kind of alone…I think her sister being there would have helped so they could yanno talk about the past and stuff. (Also Percy and Hylla would be hilarious “that one Amazon was flirting with me” “…sorry”) Hyllas queenly powers would have been greatly appreciated. You might argue “wHo wILl waTCH thE aMaZOns” um don’t you think she has a second in command? Yanno for emergencies like this?

THALIA
WHY WASNT SHE ON THIS QUEST WHY. First off, huntress allies. Second off Jason Thalia bonding?? Third ZUES POWERS SHE CAN DESTROY. and fourth she a good fighter too like she’s been with the huntress for pretty long time now and can fight but not just fight, fight honorably which is important to some monster (fighting is okay but fighting like dick is rude) also she’s use to taking care of herself so Thalia (just like most of the people on this) can go on a mini quest and handle herself just fine. She’s also a leader (again likE MOST OF THE PEOPLE THIS LIST) so she can make difficult decisions in a split second. She also probably has a second in command.

Nico. Fucking. di Angelo
What the FUCK. IM ACTUALLY SO PISSED THAT NICO WASNT ON THIS QUEST FOR SO MANY REASONS. First off Nico can fight okay he can fight pretty damn well. Ok he doesn’t need his powers but they SURE DO HELP. Nico also has this kind of aura that is really scary, most monsters wouldn’t want to mess with hades’s son cause like yanno Tartarus? Remember that place yeah well that’s hades’s realm. Nico’s powers are awesome and extensive. Like every time I read one of the books where nico is the main character he has a new power. And everyone is useful. Also undead skeletal army allies (a skeleton war if you will). I will definitely argue with you that Nico the most powerful demigod. I mean the boy killed a man. He can do things on his own but also people would want him to join them. But like none of them smother him (ok Jason might but that’s it) because they would all know that even though he can’t be by himself all of the time, he also can’t be around people all of the time or else he actually might suffocate to death. Reyna my beautiful sweet child is there to make sure nico doesn’t like die from using his powers too much. Nico is also really smart, I mean he knows how both camps operate really well and the underworld. He knows so much about gods and monsters from mythomagic so like the kid knows what he’s doing.

Tartarus would have never happened because as soon as Jason would fly his dumb ass back up to the ship, you KNOW Thalia and Reyna will below him throwing rocks and yelling at him to come back down and get Percy and Annabeth. Or the people that were on the ground (let’s say it was Reyna, Thalia, and Nico) you know that Reyna would make a plan. Thalia would hold Nico’s ankles and Reyna would hold Thalia’s (I’m assuming Reyna is the strongest) and then Nico once lowered enough would grab Percy’s wrist and Hylla seeing this would mosey her way over and grab reyna’s waist and help pull up. Easy.

The Cupid thing I think would have went down a lot nicer, like maybe instead of Jason going Reyna would have offered and I think Reyna would have been able to actually say the right things to Nico or say things that he needed to hear. Now I love Jason and I think he’s super sweet but think Reyna gets Nico much more than Jason.

JASON WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY HAD TO TALK TO REYNA AND ACTUALLY BE HER FRIEND. HE WOULD ACTUALLY HAVE TO TALKE TO HIS SISTER TOO

the only romantic canon ship on board would be Percy and Annabeth so the rest are familial or friendly.

And when you’re fighting Mother Earth herself wouldn’t want the lord of the wild on your side? Grover underwood should have been the satyr I’m so pissed because he’s so fucking powerful and YOUNG but nope we went old dad hedge (I love hedge no worries) and Grover, Percy, Annabeth reunion would have to come into existence
And you fucking know that if Grover and Thalia and Nico and Annabeth were there you fucking KNOW they would have forced Percy to call his mother.

God my seven would have conquered the universe I should be a god, shit.

Ok so by the time Damian comes around, Batman’s been around for a good long while and we all know Robin appeared not long after Batman. So people have grown up with the vigilantes a huge part of their lives. So how much do you wanna bet there are like dozens of kids named Robin/Robyn in his class. They’ll brag that they were named after the Boy Wonder, maybe their parents had been saved by them or something. And Damian is just beyond annoyed with all this bragging and it takes all his willpower not to tell these poor deluded people that they are named after the lazy jerk who fell asleep in the driveway the other night clutching 12 tins of Pringles.

It's been 10 years since Avatar The Last Airbender first aired

10 years and it’s still my favourite programme to watch. People hear me talk about it and think “why?”

Well I’ll tell you why

First off - have you even seen the animation or the backgrounds?

They are beautifully made and never fail to impress me

See what I mean? Beautiful. All the effort that went into these.

But lets talk about the show itself.

Aang


A 12 year old kid destined to save the world

Yes, he may be, but his development form the “goofy kid” to a hero isn’t a quick change. The show shows us it’s okay to be nervous

Even when you know how powerful you really are. But like any hero, Aang pulls through

The most powerful bender in the world - only a child. Watching this as child taught me that I can achieve anything if I put my mind to it. Throughout the show, the older characters keep underestimating Team Avatar because of the fact that they are all children. The writers proved them all wrong. Even as a teenager becoming an adult I still feel the same way about this show because it makes me feel invincible.

But Aang wasn’t the one I wanted to talk about.

The ladies

“girls cant fight”

I

beg

to

differ.

As a fellow girl, seeing this badass chicks fight made me feel so powerful. They were stronger than the majority of the men and they were all beautiful - so much so that I became gradually jealous of them all (I know I haven’t included them all on here - sorry) They all had their own style of fighting and all kicked ass.

ATLA not only created beautiful, strong independent women, but they also addressed sexism.

In one of the first few episodes, Team Avatar were faced with a group of warriers called the Kyoshi warriors - all female. Sokka refused to believe him, a man, had been beaten by girls. He later confessed, announcing he wanted to fight like them.

Katara - I swear the majority of characters would be dead if it wasn’t for her. Girl power. Woop!


Toph though. If you watch the series and say you don’t like Toph - I know you’d be lying (and she would too). Toph is blind. She is also the greatest earth bender in the world.

The show isn’t worried about disabilities - Toph is treat equally. So much so that the other characters forget that she is blind.

And they’re not afraid to make jokes about it!

Azula - the crazy ass bitch who, from the moment you meet her, you can tell she’s well…

not the nicest person you’ll even meet. But she’ll teach you not to use fear to control people

I’ve never had a show that has emotionally compromised me as much as this show did. Iroh’s scene in Ba Sing Se. The love and loss between father and son.

But there are so many messages the show puts forward. Many by wise speaking Iroh

But also from other characters - lessons that children should be taught about.

It’s messages like these that children should be taught. Be yourself, be happy with yourself. You don’t see many of these messages these days. It’s rather refreshing.

The show also teaches you about honour. Other people cant restore it for you, you have to gain it yourself. You have to set your own destiny, even if it goes against the flow of your nature.

Family is not always how you want it to be. To be scarred by your own father, but accepted by your uncle. Finding the right path is hard, but worth it in the long run.

I’m sorry this is such a long post - I never wanted it to be. But I had so much to express about Avatar. And 10 years of having nobody to speak to about it wasn’t fun. I want more people to watch this under appreciated show (please don’t watch the film).

It is beautiful in every aspect and I know I will still be watching this in another life
