Tracer Headcanon: When she disappeared in the Slipstream accident, Tracer witnessed the entire span of the universe, from birth to death, in real time, as a kind of intangible, omniscient, unfeeling observer. She hid this from the Overwatch psychiatric team in order to stay on active duty. As far as they know, she just has incredibly debilitating depression. She hasn’t given up on Widowmaker because she knows exactly what it’s like to be utterly numb to chaos and atrocity.

YESSSS GIVE ME ALL THE TRAGIC TRACER HEADCANONS.

Honestly, though, perpetually and overly cheerful people are typically manifesting the behaviour to hide other emotion and make themselves feel better (been clinically proven to work, btw!), and because making other people feel good also makes them feel better. Typically, though, they’re either currently depressed or previously depressed. 

And yes, this is why I think both Mercy and Tracer would be invested in Widowmaker’s recovery - because in Widowmaker they see a darkness they themselves know very well and have overcome.

As someone who lived an abusive relationship close it totally disgusts me that there are people that call karamel abusive do you even know what that word means??? I'm tired of everyone using the word abusive and toxic for everything I don't think anyone gets these words right

I feel you and I want you to know that I appreciate you and admire you for surviving abuse! You are a brave beautiful soul! I don’t speak too much about this because it’s still too fresh in my mind but I also know what a truly abusive relationship is. It wasn’t romantic in my case but it happened with a  family member (who is not my parent) that I have only eliminated from my life last year. Although I have overcome a lot of what they did to me for years and years, there are some scars that never heal. A truly abusive person destroys you completely until you are in so much pain, you almost become desperate to make it stop; they do horrible stuff to you and then act like it’s no big deal or like it never happened while you’re too ashamed to speak about it; they discover your weaknesses and use them to emotionally manipulate you; they play the victim if you dare to stand up to them; they lie to you and to your friends and to basically everyone if it suits their purpose; they make you feel like you’re crazy and a horrible person; they push you away from everyone who cares about you and make you feel like no one loves you but them. And it’s crazy because after all the abuse, sometimes I still have moments when I question whether I was the one to blame for everything that happened. 

Mon-El is none of these things and claiming he is is so upsetting for those who know what that feels like. He respects Kara’s boundaries, he apologizes for his mistakes, he tells her how amazing she is. How is that abusive?? This fandom tests me everyday, I swear to God. 

I’m sorry you have to endure this kind of bullshit as well, and I just want you to remember that Kevin Smith is directing another episode, that we’re going to see Karamel as a couple being all cute and bubbly and that the Karamel fandom is so sweet and we’re here for you if you need some love <3

As a fanfic writer, I have to say that the incessant complaints from M@lec fans about everything - nothing’s ever good enough anymore - are literally killing all my bunnies. I do write for myself, first and foremost, but I’m not immune to the mood in the fandom. And these last few weeks, all I’ve seen is discourse and, to put it mildly, whining. And that’s a really counter-productive atmosphere. 

I’m addressing this only because a very lovely person told me that they missed my M@lec stories and asked me to write more. But these days, all my muses are giving me are parabatai or Lightwood Family Feels bunnies. So, unless the Monday episode wow’s me with M@lec to the point where I can overcome the fandom’s predictable bitching, I don’t see myself writing M@lec any time soon.

Keyleth tries to figure out an anniversary gift for Vex, which is easier said than done when you live on a spaceship. [Vex/Keyleth; 2.1K]

vex/keyleth star trek au for the cr femslash fest, featuring percy. title from “accidentally in love” by counting crows

[read on ao3]

Keyleth has the coolest girlfriend in Starfleet.

This is, to be fair, a biased statement, and Percy would argue with her on the feasibility of defining “coolness” outside of its standard thermodynamic parameters, and that would devolve into designing an actual measurement system for said “coolness” (that is, of the social variety rather than the thermal one) and, well. Whatever. Percy would be wrong.

Because Keyleth has the coolest girlfriend in Starfleet.

The problem with this, of course (though Keyleth hesitates to call it “problem” because such vocabulary implicates a harmful or unwelcome situation and Keyleth means it in the purely scientific sense, that of an obstacle to be overcome) is that Keyleth doesn’t quite know what to do for and/or with (”and” being preferable to “or” because her girlfriend deserves absolutely everything in the Federation except that she’d probably oppose such ownership on humanitarian grounds) her girlfriend as a surprise for their anniversary.

This is usually the time in which she approaches Vex, because Vex has a skill with interpersonal relationships that Keyleth lacks (making her the least likely candidate to codify a measurement system for societal coolness, as noted). Unfortunately, as Vex is the recipient of said surprise, including her in its creation would undermine the surprise itself and defeat the purpose of all this planning.

So Keyleth’s in a sort of predicament. And she does what she always does when she’s in a predicament.

She seeks out Percy.

could you share a few more details about the bullying story. I mean if it's not too painfull to remember.

I get some negative anons sometimes telling me that I seem really cocky or full of myself, I would consider this bullying.

A) there’s no need to take time out of your day to be a dick to someone who is happy with themselves

B) I actually used to have a lot of insecurites and a low self esteem which I worked extremely hard to overcome and now I realize that I’m awesome and I don’t care if these people think otherwise

The lesson here: be proud of yourself and your accomplishments, and if you have haters then you’re probably doing something pretty awesome to make them jealous

“There is no enemy. The foe on the battlefield is merely a manifestation of that which we must overcome. He is doubt, and fear, and despair. Every battle is fought within. Conquer the battlefield that lies inside you, and the enemy disappears like the illusion he is.” - Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the Imperial Fists. I just had to do a Dorn thing. He’s my favorite Primarch, and I love this quote.

writing is the worst

the feeling when you’re trucking along on a scene, finally overcoming whatever hurdle held you back for weeks. Words are flowing, you’re almost at the Good Part, things are looking easy and Victory is Near.

and then you realize you forgot the part of the scene that has the key plot element.

anonymous asked:

Do you sometime feel insecure about your own work? Like being afraid that it might not be as good? How can you overcome this insecure?

Sometimes I get nervous before I post, but really I’ve been writing seriously since the sixth grade, and over the years I’ve learned to just accept that there will always people who dislike my writing, but there will also always be people who like it. I’ve been through phases of writing. Poetry, original works, fandoms, and all different kinds. Not everyone is kind to author’s, and it sometimes becomes very stressful when it feels like no one appreciates what you’re doing.

Before I began writing for Prinxiety, and PTA, and all this stuff, I came out of a different fandom that was constant hate and anger. People there were just not right, and I can’t tell you how often I had come up with a brilliant new idea, but never posted it, or deleted it because people would tear me down instantly.

Coming here, I thought I just hadn’t been unlucky enough yet to find the mean side of everything. Yet, all I’ve received is kindness and honestly I can’t name a single person who’s been mean, on or off anon, or at all.

What I’m getting at is, sometimes the difference in getting over your insecurity, is just finding that place where you feel safe.

Nanami doesn't have flaws in dr3 though

I asked for one thing and that was to wait til tomorrow to argue

Yes, she does. Episode 9 is proof of that. There she decides the best course of action is to rally her classmates to Chisa’s rescue, even giving a nice little speech about how they’ll all triumph together. She clearly believes she’s a hero in one of her video games, which is her first flaw: she’s naive and idealistic. She genuinely believes they can overcome Junko, despite seeing that Junko has Izuru at her disposal. Izuru, who out-lucked and shot Nagito. Nagito who then tells Chiaki that trying to fight Junko is a bad idea (and yes, he is just testing her, but he doesn’t say so until after her speech; at the time she has every reason to believe he’s genuine). She also sees how wounded Peko is from fighting Mukuro, and hears Peko say that they “mustn’t go”. But she still believes they can win.

Flaw 2: She’s rash. She doesn’t plan for a worst-case scenario. She doesn’t even plan at all. Her idea is to walk into Junko’s lair and look around until they find Chisa. She doesn’t think to call the authorities (we know there are police, since we see them in Episode 3, and we know the group has some kind of cell phone-esque device, since Nekomaru says Mikan used it to contact them in Episode 10). She doesn’t think to inform anyone what they’re doing, or leave some classmates behind to tell others if they don’t return. Nagito at the very least should have stayed behind since he’s injured–it doesn’t matter that he wants to come, he has been shot and can barely stay conscious. His own safety demands he be left behind and get some proper treatment. Chiaki walks her group into danger without a plan and without telling anyone, which is probably the worst thing you can do in that situation.

(This ask is devided into 7 parts. I'm calling it "17 days Bible 1234567" so you know they are connected). 17 days Bible 1! I know you have posted about this before (here's where I first read about it duh ;)), BUT it's SO GOOD and it was posted awhile ago (me thinks) so everyone should either be reminded of it now that the show's on again or for those who doesn't know get their minds blown LOL: Mr Pro Bethyl Greg Nicotero said in The Talking Dead that it's been 17 days since Daryl carried Beth-

In the Bible the number 17 symbolizes “overcoming the enemy” and “complete victory.” God overcame the sins of rebellious humans when he began to flood the earth through rain on the 17th of the second Hebrew month. Noah’s ark and its eight passengers rested on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th of the seventh month (right in the middle of God’s annual Holy period known as the Feast of Tabernacles).

Jesus Christ gained a complete victory over death and the grave when God resurrected him near sunset on Nisan 17 (Saturday, April 8, 30 A.D.).

In the book of 1Corinthians the thirteenth chapter, the seventeenth mention of the word ‘love’ comes when the apostle Paul states that it is the GREATEST gift of all (1Corinthians 13:13). God’s unending love (John 3:16) is truly victorious over all things. Those who stay faithful to God to the end of their lives will gain the victory over the grave when they are miraculously brought back to life (see 1Corinthians 15).

Daniel 7’s beasts have seven heads and ten horns, for a total number of 17. They represent world-ruling powers from Daniel’s time to the Second Coming of Jesus. The devil’s end-time system (Revelation 13) will have seven heads and ten horns, which totals 17. All mankind will very soon obey and worship the devil and the Beast power. They will war against those who have faith in Jesus and keep the commandments, thus achieving a victory (though short-lived) against God’s people (Revelation 13:1 - 8).

True Christians, however, will gain the ultimate victory over God’s adversaries when he resurrects them back to life (Revelation 15:2; 20:4). One of the major themes of the Day of Atonement (commonly referred to as Yom Kippur), which occurs in the seventh Hebrew month on the tenth day, is the binding of Satan (see Revelation 20). Thus, 10 plus 7 equal the number 17, which testifies to Christ’s perfect overcoming of Satan.” - Source (X).

I don’t really anything to add here. Just that the music box actually resurrected at dawn, which fits on a more symbolic level. After surviving the storm and the walkers, Maggie found hope again, and she took Sasha outside to see the sunrise. She was trying to give that Sasha when Aaron appeared. It was the dawn of a new era for the group. The music box disrupted their confrontation with Aaron, much like how Beth’s return will disrupt the group and disrupt the overall narrative. The group ate in 5x10, but hunger was a theme in that episode as they resorted to eating dogs in order to survive. Also, the Beast sounds a lot like Negan. He has many outposts or “heads”, and he attacks other communities in order to bring them into his “faith”. Considering how he has been set up as the Anti-Christ and how Beth is the Christ figure on the show, she will likely be connected to his downfall.

@bethgreenewarriorprincess has found way more Biblical connections, obscure ones which prove that Gimple has been planning this all along. Beth Greene is the Christ figure in TWD’s story. She’s going to save them all.

hey .. i don't know if you even read this but i saw that you've been clean for over 10 months now and i can't tell you how proud i am of u . even though i don't know you, the things you post are so relatable its like i feel the same things as you. i wish you all the best in life and i want you to know that even though sometimes it may seem like theres absolutely no way out, just hold on and i promise you that someday you will overcome it. one day you will look back to this n be so proud ofurself

This is pretty old but it gives me hope, so hopefully it will give hope to someone else too

I really want to talk to people with chronic illness who feel like their plans have been destroyed and feel like lost for how to move forward because that’s how I’m feeling and navigating it is weird and talking to people who don’t have it is uncomfortable as like it’s not as easy as just overcoming my disability there’s all the mental shit and perfectionism behind it and it feels really complicated and intertwined with a lot of things. Just like how do you move forward and start doing stuff again when you’ve kinda just stopped? Then I have all this stuff about how I’m not disabled enough and should just get on with it and think myself lucky which isn’t very helpful. I feel like ive retired? But I’m 20 so yeah I don’t want to be retired.
