One night after a difficult mission made Bruce even gruffer than usual, his children gathered for a group complaining session that featured sarcastic Bruce-impressions and comments like “it would be nice to get positive feedback every once in awhile”
“I get that he loves us and all, but he could stand to show it” “Or say it, even. Never heard him do that”
At that point Cass, who had been sitting quietly, confused all of her siblings by replying, “He says that a lot”
See, Cass’s understanding of language is different. She reads body language, and it allows her to understand how people feel when they aren’t necessarily communicating it to others. Technically, Cass has never heard Bruce say “I love you.” But she’s certainly seen him say it many, many times
And since her siblings found that hard to believe, she set about proving it to them. Through the rest of the mission, every time she saw Bruce say “I love you,” she approached the nearest sibling and whispered “There”
[Bruce adjusts Damian’s cape on his way past] “There”
[Bruce rolls his eyes as Dick and Tim strike intentionally melodramatic poses on the rooftop] “There”
[Bruce hands Duke a granola bar when his stomach starts growling] “There”
[Bruce uses excessive force on a villain that came slightly too close to Jason] “There”
[Bruce tells off the collective JLA for unprofessional behavior while they openly ignore him and continue said behavior] “There”
[Bruce turns away from the truly impressive kick flip Cass used to incapacitate three separate combatants with absolutely no change in expression] “There. See? He’s proud”
The others aren’t totally sure they believe her, but if she’s right…. wow. That kind of changes everything
And since Bruce had no idea any of that went on, she’s free to continue. Whenever Cass sees that one of her brothers is feeling down, she follows them around to act as Bruce’s translator. Somebody has to do it, she figures

yet another unfriendly reminder that Gil Brodie and Suvi Anwar are both BROWN and GAY. they are homosexuals with brown and not white skin. their sexual and romantic interests lie exclusively in people of their own gender, and their skin is a medium brown color. they are a lesbian and a gay man of ambiguous ethnic heritage but definitely skintone that falls outside of the range of shades one would consider “white”. They are brown and gay. Gay and brown. Both at the same time. Not one or the other but both. Thank.
isn’t it incredible how, once they’re in a relationship, the passion behind klance’s rivalry easily transitions into determination to show their love as much as possible? it’s so great how their desire to one-up the other becomes the way that they constantly inspire each other to fall even further in love. i’m just amazed by how their deep, beautiful relationship makes itself known in only the most ridiculously loving ways possible.
Friendly reminder that Voltron: Legendary Defender is a family friendly show about 5 friends who get together to form a robot that saves the universe and everyone in Team Voltron loves and respects one another.
Let’s please enjoy VLD for the amazing storyline, themes and characters it brings us, regardless of the ships we ship or don’t.

Summary: “If you move back to Brooklyn, we can pick up where we left
off,” Bucky said.
“Where did we
leave off?” Steve asked.
Bucky had an image in his head that had never dimmed in
intensity. It was a closed door. The door in his childhood apartment, and Steve
was on the other side of it, walking away down the hall. Confusion grabbed at
his seventeen year-old heart. He had wanted Steve back as soon as he walked
away, even though he understood the reasons for him leaving. Where Bucky wanted to pick up was to figure out that strain
in his heart that came after the door shut, the one he hadn’t understood, and
“I don’t know,” Bucky admitted.
Steve wants Bucky’s help to solve the murder of Dr. Abraham Erskine.
Meanwhile, Bucky wants to find out what happened to Steve after his mysterious
disappearance at seventeen.
fandom: girl meets world ship: riley matthews x lucas friar word count: 1,652 summary: riley matthews thinks that lucas friar’s lips are their own special kind of magic and she’s completely under their spell // or riley just really loves lucas’ lips notes: this is just a lil drabble that i was inspired to write, 99.9% of the inspiration came from this amazing drabble by my girl @friarlucas who also was the major encouragement for me in writing this. not much happens plot wise, but there are feelings. enjoy!
At the tender age of twelve, Riley Matthews has yet to have her first kiss.
She knows that it isn’t that big of a deal, there are plenty of other girls her age that haven’t locked lips yet, but she’s waiting and the wants the moment to be perfect. Her only problem is that none of the boys in her class have lips that she wants to kiss. Dave’s are too chapped, constantly cracked and look unpleasant to touch. Wyatt’s are too wet, due to his constant lick lipping and smacking. Farkle’s are always moving too fast, she’s never able to get a good look at them as he’s always spewing words from them at a mile a minute, far too fast for her to keep up with it.
It isn’t until she meets Lucas Friar that she knows what perfect lips look like, and she wants nothing more than to kiss them.
“Usually I wouldn’t say this, but can you please just use your magic?”
“You were the one who suggested this, darling.”
“Yes, well, I was wrong.” Alec looked down at his once clean black t-shirt and jeans which were now covered in flour and the occasional splatter of marinara. “Obviously. So, can you please just magic this mess away and steal a pizza, or however it is you magic in ready-made food?”
“Alexander, I’m offended you would even think I don’t pay for the food I get.” Magnus smirked at Alec as he continued to assemble the misshapen pizza.
“Magnus. Come on,” Alec said, closing the distance between himself and his boyfriend so that the sides of their bodies were pressed together and he could sneak an arm around Magnus’ waist to pull him even closer.
“We’re almost done, love. If I magicked up a pizza now all of this would have been for nothing.” Magnus sprinkled another layer of mozzarella on the misshapen dough with an understated flourish that made Alec smile.
“All right. We can finish making it. But if it turns out disgusting will you at least let me order a pizza instead?”
“If the pizza we lovingly made together turns out unpalatable, then yes, I will magic a pizza in.” Alec shook his head at Magnus’ put-upon tone, his smile becoming wider with affection.
“Thank you, Magnus. I love you,” Alec said, leaning in to press a kiss to Magnus’ temple.
“I love you too, Alexander. Although, if you really loved me you would eat the pizza we made together even if it does end up being disgusting.”
“I would do anything for you Magnus. You know that.” Magnus turned away from the pizza for a moment to look into Alec’s eyes, his own eyes bright with love and a hint of disbelief hiding in their depths, still surprised by the loving words that so often passed Alec’s lips. He opened his mouth to reply, but before he could Alec interrupted him. “But asking me to eat disgusting pizza is too much.”
Magnus laughed, his head tilting back and his chest shuddering. Alec wondered at how Magnus laughing somehow made him more beautiful than he already was. His face lighting up as he smiled wide, glowing in such a way that Alec was mesmerised, never wanting to look away, content to live the rest of his life taking in Magnus’ features and watching different expressions play across his face. Alec swallowed hard, his heart beating faster when Magnus turned that ethereal smile his way and gazed at Alec with so much love and softness.
“I suppose it would be too much to ask. I’m sorry I even suggested it,” Magnus teased, wiping his hands with a dish towel before placing one delicately against Alec’s cheek, an action Alec invariably leaned into, his eyes fluttering shut for a moment of their own accord as they always did. Once he opened his eyes Magnus smiled gently before leaning in and pressing their lips together for a mere moment before leaning back, rubbing his thumb against Alec’s cheek.
“Now, will you help me put this definitely not disgusting pizza in the oven?”
“Yes. You know I will,” Alec said smiling and shaking his head minutely so as not to dislodge Magnus’ hand.
“Great,” Magnus said, punctuating the word by patting Alec’s cheek before pulling his hand away and turning back to focus on the pizza. “I am sure that it is going to turn out amazing.”
“So am I.” Alec shook his head fondly, unable to disagree with Magnus when he was smiling like that.
“I’m glad you’re seeing reason, Alexander.”
Alec huffed a laugh as he opened the oven so Magnus could slide the pizza in. He took one last sceptical look at it before closing the oven and releasing a deep breath. As Alec continued to stare at the closed oven doors, worrying about his near future inevitably full of him eating at best subpar pizza, Magnus entered his space, placing his hands on Alec’s hips. Alec turned to look at Magnus happily; he took in the content smile on Magnus’ face and felt a matching one settle on his own.
“You know, that pizza won’t be done baking for at least eight minutes,” Magnus breathed, tugging Alec just that little bit closer.
“Hmm, really?” Alec’s gaze dropped to Magnus’ lips and his heart startled in his chest.
“Really,” Magnus replied, smirking as he watched Alec stare at his lips.
Alec hummed in response before breaching the space between them and kissing Magnus, catching Magnus’ bottom lip between his own. Magnus sighed into the kiss, bringing up one of his hands to the back of Alec’s neck, scratching at the short hairs there.
After what Alec believed to be much too little time, Magnus broke the kiss, pulling back far enough so he could properly look into Alec’s eyes. “I love you.”
“I love you, too,” Alec breathed, unable to stop a soft smile from forming as he got lost in Magnus’ eyes and his entire body hummed with warmth and love.

Okay I’d like to drag myself for a second. One time I watched 4 (?) seasons of Grey’s Anatomy just to get to CalliexArizona. I can’t even say how many seasons of Rizzoli and Isles I watched just to get excited about them staring at each other, with the idea of them being together just a joke to the actors (this is actual queerbaiting). Or Warehouse 13, which is a show that I genuinely love, but I started it and watched at least a season before HG was even in it, only for the showrunner to go haha lol no we would never (again THIS is queerbaiting) and I still turned up every week. I have so many more shows I started just because I heard so much as a whisper that there would be wlw content, I could go on forever. Like the time I watched how many episodes of a German soap before the two ladies got together??? Anyway.
My point is, I know there are plenty of people out there who don’t just jump onboard a show if they hear there’s gonna be wlw content. I get that. But I also know that I’m not alone in being Like This. And to you all…..you’re telling me you saw gifs of Kadena and you didn’t jump on this shit? smh for real what’s up guys
Also @ my fellow white queers… look. You’re maybe just gonna want to ask yourself twice why you didn’t even want to give this a chance.
When you fight for representation, you need to be fighting for representation for everyone.
