In light of an unfortunate display of ignorance I witnessed today, let me take a moment to make something blatantly clear, for anybody that needs it:
-making fun of someone for using a fidget spinner, to the point of them displaying obvious embarrassment and shame, is disgusting.
-when you say things like “Oh my GOD, I hate those spinners! They’re so annoying, what are they even for haha” you are being willfully ignorant. Spinners are marketed towards people with anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADD/ADHD, Autistic people, and many other people with brains different from yours that need an outlet to focus, relax, relieve sensory-related issues, and many other things that yours does automatically. Most of the ones I see advertised even specify “For anxiety/stress/ADHD/Autism/etc”
-Making fun of someone for other behaviors such as rocking, hand flapping, echolalia, hair twirling, skin picking, hair pulling, etc is in fact, also a shitty thing of you to do. It’s also unnecessary, cruel, and humiliates the person who is doing those things.
-Don’t make fun of people who use fidget spinners. Don’t make fun of people who stim. I don’t give a rat’s ass if you think it’s unnecessary, or it “looks weird” or it “looks gross.” Don’t do it. You KNOW what you’re doing. I know what you’re doing. I’ve had it, I’m done.
hi how are you? Can I ask you a favor? I'm a video game developer and I was wondering if you could test out the game on my blog to make sure it works? It will only take you a few seconds. Thank you :)
47. My turn ons? Well I don’t know, maybe some fucking common sense.
+ 52. My kink is closing the fucking bathroom door, because no one wants to see you fucking pee!
Those are probably my favourite ones omg ;DHope you’ll enjoy what I wrote :)
“Why are boys so annoying, oh my god!”- you groaned in frustration, followed by Bucky who had an unbelievable smirk on his face, which you wanted to smack at the moment. “And why do you keep walking around half naked and…wet? Why the hell are you wet? You look like a glistening baby’s butt, Barnes!”- you waved your hands in the air like a mad man, but god, you were annoyed!
“No, don’t laugh at me, because you keep doing it! You keep walking your naked butt around as if it’s something everyone wants to look at, playboy!”- the expression on your face was the perfect opposite of his. While yours was a one that said ‘So done with your shit’, his…well his was more like ‘You know you want some more of my shit’.
Well, maybe you did, but that’s not the point now, is it? You smacked his hard chest with your hand and he brought his to the spot you had just hit him and opened his mouth, pretending to be hurt. “You’re a dick”. Yes, that was your final word about it, why the hell bother with an idiot anyways, and besides you can’t really stay near his half naked self for too long and not stare like a schoolgirl.
But, he didn’t have to know that, so you just brushed him off and turned around dramatically, and just so dramatically failed as you found yourself hitting your pinkie toe on the edge of the cabinet.
So, whining in misery, you glared at him, and he was looking quite amused, laughing and such. “You okay there?”- you narrowed your eyes at him, and went to kick him in the leg. “Don’t act like you care, you little fuck!”
His laughter was a blessing from god, well usually, now it was just irritating you in two very opposite ways. Another thing he doesn’t need to know.
“Come on, baby, you have to admit I turn you on, at least physically, you get all blushy when I’m around.” - well how dare he! You just scoffed at him with an unbelievable expression. “So what do you say, I think I can definitely add myself on the list with your turn ons…maybe even kinks?”- he wiggled his brows and even if this made your insides turn red, your face stayed equally annoyed as two seconds ago.
He was one smooth bastard and he knew it, so he made his way over to you and well, his chest were really in your face now, like wow has he been training, because damn. What the fuck _____?? No. “So tell me what turns you on?” - his voice was just the right amount of deepness, mixed with huskyness and like ten spoons of flirtatiousness, but you weren’t giving up just yet, so you kind of said ‘fuck off’ to your horny brain.
My turn ons? Well, what could they be, I don’t know, maybe some fucking common sense! Which leads me to my kink, that would be closing the fucking bathroom door, because no one wants to see you fucking pee! I don’t want to get flashed by you anymore God damn it, there isn’t a bloody part from you that I haven’t seen!! I feel traumatized and my eyes - my eyes have been violated too many times, Barnes!” - your voice progressed from mumbling to yourself to yelling in his face and shaking him by his arms, while he was simply looking at you dead in the eye with a seductive smirk.
Until… the towel around his hips fell on the ground.
So. I don’t usually involve myself in petty fandom feuds but HOLY. SHIT. This is pissing me off. We’ve gone through 100+ chapters and people STILL don’t understand Lizzy’s character? They manage to rationalize Kuroshitsuji enough that they give Sebastian feelings even though he’s a hungry demon who made a pact with a 10 year old boy because he sensed his soul was broken, desperate, and malleable to more further corruption. They manage to do all this for a DEMON but can’t find it in their hearts to apply that analytical mindset to a darling 14 year old girl whose human emotions drive her every decision?
“She’s selfish! She only wants to make Ciel smile so things can go back to the way they were!”
“She doesn’t understand him! She’s always trying to change him, that bitch!”
“She’s so ANNOYING. Like, her voice!”
“Oh my god, did you see her standing there in the third panel? Like who does that! RUDE.”
So in an attempt to bring some basic level of cognition into these…“arguments” I’m going to go through them one by one and you can disagree if you like. But please refrain from using derogatory terms, unsubstantiated arguments, and referrals to “proofs” that are nothing more than blog posts made from those who wish to paint Kuroshitsuji in terms more favorable to them and whatever else they ship.
1. “She’s selfish! She only wants to make Ciel smile so things can go back to the way they were!”
Elizabeth Midford is, by far, the LEAST selfish person in the whole damn manga. This girl spent most of her childhood loathing the physical strength she possessed because the person she loved didn’t like it. She chose to shoulder her anguish by HERSELF because she didn’t want to burden Ciel (or her brother or her mother or her father) with her personal worries.
Lizzy is also incredibly aware that things can NEVER go back to the way they were. She expresses this concern to Sebastian when she admits that she wishes Ciel would talk to her more and that the only reason she overdoes her cuteness is because she wants to see Ciel smile. Why are comedians so outlandish and over-the-top? Because they want to see their audience laugh. Lizzy took that mindset and applied it to her goal of cheering Ciel up. Furthermore, the Easter egg chapter proved ONCE AND FOR ALL that Lizzy is perfectly aware of the change that’s occurred within Ciel—that he’s no longer the happy, smiling boy of years past.
Lizzy KNEW Ciel didn’t remember why the egg was nostalgic and if she was really selfish, she would’ve thrown a fit—had a full on temper tantrum then and there but instead, what does she do? She outwits the game master himself. Lizzy sets up an Easter egg hunt that she made up completely off the cuff, wears a happy smile throughout the entire event, and when Ciel hands her the egg what does Lizzy do? She laughs and wishes that the egg would bring CIEL lots of happiness. HOW IS SHE SELFISH? HOW. Selfish would be throwing a tantrum because Ciel didn’t remember the way things used to be. Selfish would be bringing up the past EVERY FRIGGIN SECOND. Selfish would be forcing Ciel to comply to the shared etiquette of their past.
Instead, Lizzy is SELFLESS. Instead of throwing a tantrum, Lizzy wishes Ciel happiness. Instead of bringing up the past, Lizzy tries to ignore it because she knows it makes Ciel uncomfortable—that’s why she’s never asked him about “that month” even though she desperately wants to know what’s happened to the boy she loves. And instead of forcing Ciel to behave the way he used to (sweet, sympathetic, loving), Lizzy is learning to accept him for who he is now—how many times has Ciel ignored her? How many times has Ciel left the country without telling her? How many times has Ciel purposely hidden things from Lizzy and then disregarded her concern with a wave of his hand? Lizzy is learning to accept this new Ciel—this closed off, distant Ciel because she KNOWS something terrible must have happened to him. Because instead of crying and whining like she did at the beginning of Black Butler when Ciel refused to take off his ring, Lizzy has learned to ACCEPT. And that, my dears, is called character development—something Ciel hasn’t undergone since the beginning of this manga.
2. “She doesn’t understand him! She’s always trying to change him, that bitch!”
There is NOTHING about Ciel that Lizzy is trying to change. If anything, it’s Sebastian who’s always prodding and provoking Ciel to become darker—more cruel, less empathetic, and more focused on getting his revenge. She threw a party for Ciel at the beginning of the manga because she thought that might make him smile—fun colors, fine music, seeing Bard and Finny crossdressing…heck, even Ciel took a page from Lizzy’s book when he dressed the F5! It probably took Lizzy HOURS to choose Ciel’s outfit, decorate the mansion, coordinate the whole event and it probably hurt like hell to see Ciel dismiss all her hard work so casually.
As a reader, it’s easy for us to say “HELLO. Doesn’t she know? He was abused and tortured by the cultists! He made a deal with the devil to escape that wretched place, how could this dumb broad think a simple party would cheer him up?!”
And the answer is…Lizzy has NO IDEA what happened to Ciel. (Hindsight is a gift, ain’t it?) She has no idea that he became so desperate to escape the cult that he sold his soul to a starving demon. Lizzy is does not know what Ciel went through and this boy is doing his damnedest to make sure Lizzy never knows. Because he wants to keep her pure, ignorant, and encased in light.
People always point to the party chapter as Lizzy trying to “change” Ciel but all she wanted was to put a smile on his face. She even admits that she overdoes it at times but everything she’s done comes from a good place. Everyone wants to see their loved ones happy and Ciel is the boy Lizzy loves best of all—of course she’s going to try everything under the sun to try and put a little smile on his face.
And Lizzy DOES understand Ciel, to the best of her ability. She’s never once asked Ciel (or Sebastian) about his time in the cult. She uses games to figure out Ciel’s secrets. (Ex: Easter egg hunt—this is where Lizzy knew Ciel was only pretending to remember their Easter tradition and where Lizzy’s suspicions were confirmed—something life changing and drastic DID happen to Ciel during “that month.”) She doesn’t force Ciel to take her to public events because, let’s face it—as the only daughter to a high ranking marquess that serves directly under the queen, Lizzy’s bound to be invited to dozens of soirees a week. And as a gentlewoman of the aristocracy, Lizzy’s going to need an escort. In Victorian times, it was typical that the fiancé escort his bride-to-be but here is Lizzy—sweet, traditional Lizzy—ignoring precedent because she KNOWS Ciel dislikes social events. (Keep in mind, this is information being pieced together by a 14 year old girl who’s been taught to be an “unknowing angel.”)
Elizabeth understands the change that’s come over Ciel, knows that he won’t be interested in the same things he was interested in before. But in spite of Ciel shutting her out, in spite of Sebastian’s constant presence, Lizzy is still working her hardest to try and bring some happiness to Ciel’s life because she loves him. She loves him so much that Bravat was able to take Lizzy’s desperation and devotion and use it against her.
Let’s not forget—the reason Lizzy continued seeing Bravat was because she thought he could help her make Ciel happy.
3. “She’s so ANNOYING. Like, her voice!”
I think this is the most common excuse people use to not like Lizzy. They critique her high levels of energy (even though Finny and Soma are equally vivacious), her love for beautiful things (even though Ciel is probably the vainest little boy in the whole of London, England), and the fact that she “doesn’t understand” Ciel (counterargument already presented above).
You know, in a lot of ways I see Lizzy as a Scarlett O’Hara figure—strong, determined, unflinching in the face of danger. But also very, very misunderstood. Lizzy only behaves with an exorbitant amount of energy because she wants to make Ciel happy —to bring some sunlight into his gloomy, pessimistic world. The end results are not always successful but the intention behind Lizzy’s every action is pure—as pure as Soma’s decision to help Ciel simply because he saw him as a friend. Lizzy puts on a vaudeville for Ciel in a misguided attempt to help him heal and move on from whatever is tormenting him.
4. “Oh my god, did you see her standing there in the third panel? Like who doesn’t that! RUDE.”
Black Butler is told from the perspectives of Ciel and Sebastian. We only get brief glimpses into Lizzy’s psyche so it’s impossible for us to codify her completely. What I do know is that some people out there will always hate on Lizzy—whether it’s because they dislike her voice (well that’s her VA’s fault, not Lizzy’s) or because Lizzy “gets in the way” of someone’s ship. I’m not here to reason with those who refuse to be reasoned with. This is me expressing my adoration for a flawed, misguided, but pure of heart character whose unconditional love for a changed, callous boy makes me admire her all the more.
Oddly enough, people seem to relate “understanding” a person to “knowing exactly what happened to them to make them this way.” And to me, this is really giving Lizzy an unfair shake. By this definition, Lizzy could never understand Ciel because she doesn’t know what happened to him in that one month that’s made him the way he is (reason: he flat out didn’t tell her and uses every opportunity to prevent her from finding out. Ciel is so concerned about protecting Elizabeth’s goodness/light/purity that on the Campania, when Sebastian was slaughtering all those Bizarre Dolls, Ciel shielded Lizzy from seeing the carnage because he wants her to remain innocent and unaware). To quote Albert Einstein, “Any fool can know. The point is to understand.”
I think Lizzy understands Ciel—she can sense the pain, the resignation, the drive towards something greater that Ciel is working towards. This is best exemplified in an early chapter (after Ciel’s fallen asleep and Sebastian is serving her tea) where Lizzy expresses sorrow that Ciel won’t tell her anything. Sebastian comforts Lizzy by telling her that while “It’s a difficult question for me as a butler…[I can tell you] one thing…He [Ciel] was able to spend a nice, free day with everyone.” To which Lizzy retorts that she wishes she could believe that. Elizabeth may not know what happened to Ciel during that month, but she understands.
This then brings me to my next and final point—people wanting Lizzy to “accept” the situation by stepping aside and leaving the manga. Well, to quote Michael J. Fox: “Acceptance doesn’t mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that there’s got to be a way through it.” — And this is exactly what Lizzy’s doing. She’s fighting for a way to help Ciel, to help him move on, to do anything that might benefit it. Lizzy’s accepted the situation but she’s certainly not resigned for it—Lizzy’s a fighter, and she’ll continue fighting for the boy she loves until the very end.
Further discussion is encouraged. But, please remember: refrain from using derogatory terms, unsubstantiated arguments, and referrals to “proofs” that are nothing more than blog posts made from those who wish to paint Kuroshitsuji in terms more favorable to them and whatever else they ship. I am not disparaging other characters or ships—I merely ask that you don’t refer to those “did you know” blog posts that’s caused so much strife in the Black Butler fandom. Thank you.
MARILYN: Hello? BETTY: Lets go out. MARILYN: Okay. hold on, i’m on the other line with Lauren. BETTY: Don’t invite Lauren, she’s driving me nuts. MARILYN: Hold on. BETTY: Ok, hurry up. MARILYN: It’s Betty, she wants to hang out with me tonight but she told me not to tell you. LAUREN: Do not hang out with her. MARILYN: Why? LAUREN: You don’t want me to tell you. MARILYN: Ugh, you can tell me, hold on… MARILYN: Oh my God she’s so annoying. LAUREN: Who is? MARILYN: Who’s this? LAUREN: Lauren. MARILYN: Right, hold on… MARILYN: Oh my God, she’s so annoying.

Okay so I feel the need to talk about this even if I do not see it on here and idk how many of you are actually aware of this…
But Paul Ripke Nico’s ex photographer now works for Lewis and Nico’s fans on instagram are taking this too seriously and are attacking him by saying that he ‘only cares about money’, are unfollowing his instagram account and are posting snake and money emojis in his comments then go on their insta story post a rant calling him money hungry while you know he follows you and he actually sees it.
First of all be glad that he at least has a job because I know, even in my country, there are so many unemployed people so what if it’s Lewis oh you’re saying you would be less butthurt if he was Mercedes’ or Bottas’ photographer well fuck off he chose Lewis and it his freaking life and you cannot control it.
And btw people need money to actually live a life which y'all are not doing because if you were living yours you wouldn’t attack somebody elses.
Thunderstorms and Log Cabins (Carl Grimes x Reader)
Word Count: 3,202
Carl Grimes x Reader
you do one where the reader and Carl are out on a run together and they’re best
friends. But the reader risks her life to save Carl and it causes a big fight
between them, which ends up making them get stuck in a huge thunderstorm and
they have to stay inside this cabin they found. Carl admits the reason he was
so mad is because he couldn’t live without her and he loves her. And the rest
descriptions of killing walkers, mentions of death, language, slight angst, awkward
teenageness, fluff, virginity loss, smut (unprotected. please do not do this
in real life.)
“Take that, you asshole.” You mutter as you stab the walker in the side of its forehead, watching it fall lifelessly to the ground. You bend over and pull the knife out of its head, immediately turning your body so you can kill the other walker that’s currently trying to attack you.
Yeah, the run that you’re on today isn’t going as planned.
“There’s still about a dozen more outside this door, Y/N, we don’t stand a chance. We’re going to have to escape somehow.” Carl yells over at you, using his own knife to get the walker that is in front of him.
borderline, anyone? that moment when you get attached to a person in a matter of two days???? you just literally started talking to them, but they already gave you some love, attention and validation and now you’re just fucked, because oh my god someone finally??? I’m so fucked. I’m getting so annoying, I will make them tired of me and they will leave. like, guys, everyone leaves, e v e r y o n e, there’s not a single person I loved that stayed with me, remember the girl who promised me future, marriage, house and love. lmao if she left, then who won’t?
