of having let the world down

I live and would die for asexual biromantic Percy Jackson

Listen …. I live and breath for this headcanon and I love you for agreeing 

  • Percy treats Annabeth right - he grew up with Gabe abusing Sally and he vowed to be the exact opposite of him - so she doesn’t realize right away. They’ve never done anything further than kiss and she assumes it’s because they’re young and then because there’s other things to worry about and then that he’s being a gentleman once everything has settled down
  • When she finds out she’s incredibly supportive and Percy breathes a sigh of relief (cause lets face it: Percy probably has lots of self-worth issues and anxiety and it was hard for him to come out)
  • A lot of people are concerned about them having children and they’re just like are you crazy?? we don’t want to bring a child into this world to possibly suffer like us
  • Instead they look after, care, and help train all the campers who ran away, were kicked out of their homes, or were orphaned. Their hands are always full, but it makes them feel as if they’re doing some good in the world and they end up having dozens of children and what, just because we didn’t birth them doesn’t mean they’re not our children, piss off
  • The particularly young campers live with them and pay visits to Sally when they get older. She bakes for them and gives them life advice and pulls them into her infamous hugs when they’re sad. She warns Percy who to keep an eye on
  • But as much as he feels comfortable around his family, he’s self-conscious around the Aphrodite cabin and anyone else he thinks may sneer at him for it, until many reassurances later when they help him accept who he is
  • Once he accepts who he is, he loves to joking flirt with Jason and Piper and Leo, who tell him to screw off. Annabeth thinks it’s hilarious because she knows there’s nothing behind it besides trying to get a rise out of their friends
  • And if sometimes they pull pranks or fight Percy in retaliation, let’s just say she’s only a foot behind to record all of it
  • He and Annabeth go to every Chris Evans movie cause damn that boy is so dreamy
  • His favorite pajama shirt is one that reads “you are correct, Asexuals do reproduce via budding and soon our clones will rule the world” that Annabeth bought him

This went to a different place than I was expecting but here are some of my thoughts nevertheless

THE NEXT CROSSOVER SHOULD BE THE WESTALLEN WEDDING!!!

So Barry and Iris have done every trope at least twice (confessions of love, first kisses, proposals), let’s keep that up with their wedding. 

I want the Legends, Team Arrow, and Team Supergirl to come to CC for the wedding. I want all the females being Iris’s bridesmaids. I wanted freaking Linda to be the maid of honor. I want Oliver talking to Barry about how he was wrong saying guys like them don’t get the girl. I want some end of the world thing to happen as Iris is walking down the aisle and they all run outside to see what it is. I want Barry to pull Iris close because god fucking damn it he can and will protect her. I want the villians to be fucking good and I want there to a shit ton of fighting. I want Barry to almost die and Iris go off on someone (preferably Oliver because why the fuck not) about how he is the love of her life, she almost died with Savitar, but she would not lose him on their wedding day. 

I want everyone fighting tooth and nail. I want them to save the day. Then I want there to be a scene where Barry and Iris are holding hands, exchanging vows, (mostly coming from Iris because Barry tells her his every other episode at this point). I want there to be an after party scene where Cisco makes a speech about Barry being a stubborn ass and Iris not being much better, and god help all of them should they ever have kids. 

Then I want it to end with Barry and Iris waving people goodbye. She looks at him with the biggest grin and says,” So what happens now, Flash?”

And he says,” Whatever comes next, Mrs. West-Allen.”

I have reached the point where i thought i couldn’t possibly despise mon-hell more than i already do but BOY WAS I WRONG

and there was a point in the episode where i found myself saying “if they kiss again im gonna flip over this damn table!!!” and you know why?? because it was completely unnecessary and i can’t stand the double standard anymore like ok we live in a heteronormative world but if you’re going to have a homosexual couple on the show AT LEAST try to put a balance between the relationships !!! 

and having a gay couple on the show doesn’t give the writers an excuse to allow such a toxic relationship between a hetero couple 

like haha look at the amount of diversity we have on the show we can now shove as much white male privilege down our viewers’ throats as much as we want and to make it even more fun lets see how many times he’s going to break Kara’s heart and lie to her hahaha so fun like BITCH PLS

anyway the only way to save this show is to have lena shove a pitch fork up mon-ew’s hairy asshole and be carried away by kara bridal style AGAIN

I think it's kinda funny how no one at the DEO figured out Mon-el was the prince, or at least not a royal guard, sooner. It was glaringly obvious. In the beginning he was always running away from danger, didn't want to be a hero, and that's not very royal guard-like behavior. You'd expect someone who protected the prince to have the innate characteristic of running to help people without thinking about how he can get hurt.

Very true. But this is the same world where people can’t tell that Kara is Supergirl just because she lets her hair down and takes off her glasses. lmao 

But then again the same happens with other DC shows. For instance I find it very hard to believe that everyone in Star City doesn’t already know that Oliver is the Green Arrow. I mean come on! It’s so obvious. 

Had the privilege of seeing James L perform as Scorpius over the weekend and it was mind blowing seeing her play an own original version of the character. And the most important scene for me was in Scene 4. Usually Anthony would have his head down, shoulders hunched, fiddling with invisible dirt on his trunk and clearly distraught and grieving over his mother; but James sat completely straight up, eyes shocked wide, and seemingly not caring and numb to the world (script). Not trusting himself to say anything. Until Albus interrupts his thoughts.

Albus: I though you’d send an owl…

Scorpius: I couldn’t work out what to say. 

And this scene on stage played by James completely hones down to how shocked this poor little boy is. How distraught he is and how jumbled his feelings are. He must have sat in his room for hours with quill gripped tight in his hands, trying his best to write something, anything to let Albus know. To find some comfort in his best friend knowing but not able to write a single thing down. Not able to communicate his grief and sorrow. Not able to express himself for fear that he’d just breakdown and cry. 

Some questions for writers!

Reblog with your answers! I want to get more communication going in the writing community here. Answer one, answer some! Answer whatever you want to!

1. What was the first character you ever created? No matter how embarrassing.

2. Is there a specific thing that made you want to start writing more? 

3. Favorite character you’ve ever created? 

4. Do your stories tend to have only a few characters or a lot?

5. Do you sit down and plan out your worlds or just let them build themselves as you write?

6. Do you ever meet people and want to write about them?

7. What kind of environment do you do most of your writing in? Music or no music? Loud or quiet? In private or wherever? 

8. Do the people in your life ever read what you write, or do you tend to not show them?

9. What inspires you? 

10. What’s the weirdest character you’ve ever created?

11. What’s the most boring character you’ve ever created?

12. Do you name your background characters? Do you even have them?

13. Are you one of the writers who writes in symbolism and specifically thinks about things like the color of a hat or that kind of thing? Or do you just pick those things at random?

14. Are there any authors you feel have influenced your style? Published authors, fanfic authors, ect. 

15. Were you a story teller before you could write?

17. Do your stories tend to take place in the real world or in a fantasy world? Both? Neither?

18. Do you tend to set your stories in the present or the past or the future? Do you think about when it’s set or does that not factor into the story?

19. What kind of things do you like to write? Poetry? Short stories? Novels? Fanfiction? Children’s Books? Nonfiction? Something else entirely? 

20. Do you like to do events like NaNoWriMo or the Three Day Novel, or do you prefer to do things at your own pace?

This means that Spain, Portugal, Germany, Netherlands, and the UK, are all back on the table, if I can connect with some really cheap hostels and airbnbs or campsites, or maybe find house-sitting gigs, or talk to friends without cats (bc I have a literally life-threatening allergy) who will let me couch surf for a week or so (and of course, wherever I settle permanently, I’ll return the favor).

I’ll settle down permanently SOMEWHERE eventually, but who knows where? (Probably someplace I can buy into a national health care plan fairly quickly.)

“If you’re so poor, how can you afford to travel?” Like, buddy, with how small my disability pension is, as long as I plan carefully, it may be cheaper to travel around the world than it is to try to live on my own in the United States. How fucked up is that?

#NeverForgetTheGood


*Plz feel free to add other good news (even if it’s something small like you ate cheesecake THAT is good news)

*at the end of the year I plan to remake this list with new things, fixed mistakes and links but will be posting from my side blog @iamrainbow

i really have to kind of admire just how brutally blunt lemony snicket was in his books marketed to goddamn preteens that good people, including adults that really, really ought to help you, can and will let you down, that the world generally doesn’t give us answers to our most burning questions no matter how much we want them, and that in the end, there are going to be times when you have absolutely no clue, no vindication, no sign, no nada, nothing that what you are doing is the right thing. 

My advice for baby witches!

Here is a ton of stuff I wish someone told me 7 years ago.

  • You do not have to be Wiccan.
  • You do not have to worship any deity.
  • You do not have to believe everything you read on the internet.
  • Witchcraft cannot bend the laws of physics or the material world.
  • Witchcraft cannot give you the ability to fly, change your eye color, change your species, etc.
  • There are many “fluffy” websites out there full of misinformation like the above point.
  • You do not need to have a fancy journal where you write your shit down.
  • You can do that with a computer or in a cheap notebook. But if you want to go all out, go ahead!
  • Witchcraft does not do all the work for you. If you cast a spell to get an A on a test, you best study too.
  • Do not let others shame you from doing what works for you.
  • This includes cursing. Please don’t shame others if they want to curse!
  • If you want to do dream work or astral work, start keeping a dream journal now. 
  • You do not have to spend an arm and a leg for spell ingredients. 
  • If you’re closeted, paper magic and energy magic are your friends.
  • If you’re going to curse, ground and cleanse before AND after.
  • Understand that every spirit/entity you meet might not be your friend and you may have to get rid of it.
  • Understand that learning anything takes time, be it spirit communication or tarot.
  • Do not give up on yourself.
  • It’s okay to take a break from the craft. I do that every so often.
  • You can be christian/any religion AND a witch.
  • Witchcraft is not a religion. Wicca is.
  • You don’t need to be religious if you don’t want to.


Feel free to add anything else and my askbox is always open if you have questions!

Hey, let’s go over the things you should do on Voting Day:

1) DON’T TAKE A SELFIE IN THE VOTING BOOTH. This could both invalidate your vote AND get you in serious trouble, so DON’T DO IT. If you want to take a pic and show that you voted, most polling locations hand out little ‘I Voted’ stickers that are perfect for it.

2) GET TO YOUR LOCATION EARLY. You don’t want to show up to your polling locations five minutes before they close. Even when ignoring all of the early closings and shady shit that went down during the primary, there’s no sense in being rushed through your vote. If you can, head out as early as possible - that way, you won’t have to rush.

3) BRING A FRIEND. Let’s be honest, voting isn’t the most convenient thing in the world. If you bring someone with you, it’s a lot more fun - not only that, but you’ll have a shield/safe place in case there’s anyone pushing a particular viewpoint outside of your polling location.

4) REMEMBER THAT IT’S NOT SCARY. Sure, voting may not be all that convenient, but it’s not all that bad, either. It only takes a few minutes, and while there might be a lot of people around, they’re just there to vote and get out of there - 99% of the time, they won’t even notice you, let alone try to influence your vote.

5) DON’T ‘JOKE VOTE.’ Hey, remember Brexit? That time where a bunch of kids/young adults/regular adults voted on something that fucked up their country because ‘they didn’t think it would actually happen’? YEAH LET’S NOT DO THAT. Your vote counts, and you only get ONE SHOT AT IT. Vote for your candidate and take it seriously.

Feel free to add anything, and to spread this around before tomorrow!

Dumb headcanon of the day: since Victor and Yuuri are so popular, they get a lot of requests to do promotional work for stuff and publicity stunts and things, and they turn down anything that’s too outrageous…but one time an animal rescue group asks them to help with a fundraiser, and they can’t say no to helping doggies in need. You know that buzzfeed video where they get those girls drunk and then let them play with puppies? That’s pretty much what this ends up being. Please donate money and considering adopting a shelter animal while watching a livestream of these world class athletes drunk off their asses and surrounded by puppies!!

Yuuri keeps picking up each puppy to kiss and rub his face against while sobbing about how cute they are. Victor has his arms full of puppies and tears streaming down his face ‘I SHOULDN’T HAVE DRANK VODKA, I CAN’T PROTECT THEM’

It ends up being very successful, and Makkachin gets a new sibling because they just couldn’t leave without adopting at least one puppy.

1. stop comparing yourself to other people. embrace your differences. remember what you have to offer the world. make lists of your good traits. forget what other people can do better and remember what you do good.


2. tell your friends you love and appreciate them more. thank them for listening. thank them for being them. forgive them faster and stop letting petty things get in between your friendships.

3. stop going back to the ex who screwed you over. be friends if you want, but remember they don’t even deserve your friendship. remember you cannot be fixed by the one who broke you.

4. let go of the people who are bringing you down. if a relationship brings you more pain than joy, it’s a toxic relationship. stop putting effort into people who refuse to meet you half way.

5. compliment yourself at least one time every day. try to compliment others every day as well.

6. get serious about your health. eat wheat bread and less sugar. exercise, even if it’s just walking. don’t do this for a flat stomach; do it because it’s good for your health.

7. take care of your mental health. surround yourself with people who make the negative thoughts in your head shut off. ask for help. see a therapist if you need one. take your pills as prescribed.

8. stop letting little things bother you. ask yourself if you’re really going to care about it in five years, and if the answer is no, let go of it. stop wasting time feeling sorry for yourself. sometimes you can’t help but to get upset over things, but when you do, do everything in your power to try to cheer yourself up.

9. use the internet less. read more books. spend more time with your family. spend more time being present and looking people in the eye. look up and appreciate the beauty around you.

10. drink less alcohol. do things with people that doesn’t involve drinking. discover how to have fun sober.

11. start the career you actually want. switch majors, even if you will end up spending more time in school. go back to college if you’re not in it and you want a profession you have to go to college for. i know it’s expensive but the rest of your life is worth it.

12. stop watching life pass you by. learn to say yes and learn to say no. learn to make decisions for yourself. learn to say “i am unhappy where i am so i am changing it.” make the first move. take charge of your life.

13. save more money for things you really want, whether it be a vacation or a new pair of shoes. stop blowing money on things you don’t need. pay your bills on time and avoid the late fees.

14. appreciate the good things in your life. eliminate negative self talk (or at least try to). think about three good things in your life every morning before you get out of bed. stop dwelling on the bad.

15. give your all in everything you do. don’t settle for mediocrity. work every day to be a better person than you were the day before.

—  fifteen new years resolutions you can keep in 2017

BOI let’s talk about Neil “rabbit” Josten and Andrew “never lets his guard down” Minyard and how they inexplicably forget the rest of the world is a thing when they’re together???? Like 

  • everyone knows better than to interrupt their intense eye contact. They’ll stare at each other for minutes at a time and matt’s just standing there off to the side, waiting for their bizarre silent convo to wind down. Neil’s the first to look away. 
    • “Oh, how long have you been there, matt?“ 
    • "Just a few seconds don’t worry" 
  • even when they’re not staring at each other, they’re both completely useless if one is looking. Neil focuses his entire attention on Andrew when the sun hits him just right and Kevin sighs and closes the notebook of exy plays they’d been discussing. Andrew is not-watching Neil staring at him, Neil is probably mentally composing a sonnet about Andrew’s shoulders or arms or pinky finger, and Kevin starts talking about Quebec, potato salad, and cello music because anything he says Neil will never be able to remember 
  • they’re not much for PDA but also when the locker room is empty after a game, they might (always) make out against the lockers and sometimes they don’t remember that one freshman who was getting dressed in the showers and he squeaks in surprise when he walks in on them but they’re too wrapped up in each other to notice (or care) 
  • dan is sure she could blow an air horn next to their ears, but if they’re sharing a cigarette, they wouldn’t even flinch. Nearly every day after practice while they wait for Kevin to finish up, Neil and Andrew share a cigarette in the shade provided by the court’s walls. They stand not quite close enough to touch but the space between them is almost nonexistent, and take turns smoking while gazing meaningfully at each other. Or Andrew will smoke and Neil will steal his cigarette and he’ll steal it back and on and on until the thing is burned down to the filter. 
    • Nicky swears he caught them shotgunning smoke but his phone was "dead” at the time and without visual evidence he couldn’t cash in the prize money.
    •  He’s still bitter about it. 
  • one time they halted an entire game for a full minute because some asswipe had growled “Wesninski” at Neil and Neil got tripped up and twisted his ankle.
    • the combination of panic from hearing his old name and panic about not being able to play kept him on the court floor and Andrew was at his side in an instant. He ignored the rest of the players, the refs, and Coach in favor of kneeling on the ground and pressing his forehead to Neil’s. They whispered to each other for a full half a minute before the panic left Neil’s eyes and Andrew was content to sit back. 
    • Neil at least had the decency to look sheepish when he saw the dozen people crowded around them, staring at him with varying amounts of confusion and annoyance.
    • Andrew did not.
Friendly PSA

If you draw yourself and your favorite character from whatever series and you’re afraid to upload it. Don’t be, it’s art and it’s beautiful and important.

If you write a story about yourself and your favorite character in their world, or them in ours, and you are worried about being ridiculed. You shouldn’t be, because it is creative and unique.

If you do post self-insert art/stories, than I admire you and respect you so much. I am happy that you decided to share your talents with the world.

If you create anything involving you and a favorite character, or series, and you are feeling discouraged about it because someone is making fun of you for it; Fuck ‘em. Any type of art is a freedom of expression, an outlet for emotions and ideas. Don’t let anyone keep you down from what you enjoy.

If you ridicule someone for creating something with their favorite character/series and them, stop it. You have no right to mock someone for doing something they enjoy. As long as it’s not hurting anyone who cares? Let them be happy.

All types of art matters, no matter what. Do what you want to do. If it’s not hurting anyone, who cares?

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your well being a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful – you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.
