people being loved

I’m seeing a lot of people saying ‘I hated lars initially, he was an asshole! he was created as an antagonist!’ like I understand that he has been mean but I never really saw him as an antagonist? He wasn’t very nice but also wasn’t mean for the sake of being mean, instead I think a lot of his issues stemmed from his own insecurities, which we kinda saw from the beginning. His feelings for Sadie, his attitude towards the cool kids, and his treatment towards Steven all really centered around the fact that he didn’t think they could actually care about him and like him the way he was, hence him pushing people away and defending himself.

It even became literal with him running away to hide instead of helping Sadie, because he has never been able to put himself at risk like that. And sure, it wasn’t really nice or fun, but it felt really…honest? While Sadie and the cool kids are all great and fun characters that are pretty different from how teenagers usually are portrayed, I think Lars has been a really strong contrast from that. The cool kids are so sure of themselves, which is why they’re so good at lifting up people around them and expressing themselves. No matter what Steven and Sadie and the cool kids say or do, Lars couldn’t really act the same way until HE confronted his feelings and learned to move past them and grow.

Turning pink could honestly be a physical representation of that growth, because it was Steven’s fear and choices that finally allowed him to express himself. So I don’t think Lars was ever a villain, and while he wasn’t as nice and fun as the other young people in Beach City, I think it still made sense and didn’t necessarily make his character unlikeable. He has just been a scared teenager who is too insecure about himself to see that those around him aren’t perfect and don’t judge him for his imperfections, and once Steven made him listen and understand that, he could finally learn to be brave and risk himself for the people he cares about, because now he knows they won’t turn on him.

I see a lot of people saying this was his redemption arc, but I disagree. I don’t think he needed a redemption arc, because he didn’t need to be redeemed, he just needed to grow and learn to love himself so he could love the people around him too.

About the Hillma thing. TBH I completely agree with you. I don't know how to say this w/o sounding like a bitch but Hillma is the stupidest thing ever in my opinion. You can't pick and choose which crazy conspiracies you want to believe in just because you think certain ones are cool. I get it if you don't like Bill but to endorse the GOP lie that they have a fake relationship because you just want Hillary to be a lesbian is ridiculous.

damn, this is tea.. no shade… just FAX…. no printer.

I have (probably) read all of your fanfictions and I cried while reading them every single time and I can tell you that don't cry usually because I've got a heart of ice. Anyways I adore your style of writing it's just so detailed and heartfelt, like, I can feel your passion and devotion in those words and I really really hope that you won't give up writing because you have some serious talent <3

omg??

this is a really sweet message, thank you <3

Something about David that makes him particularly good, I think, is a complete lack of ego. He doesn’t try and force anything on it, it’s completely natural. And believable. And you want to believe him as well. I think, in the end, there’s just something so open about him, it just really welcomes people in. You find yourself drawn to the screen, and then you sit down and you stay because you want to spend that hour with him.

Honest question

When did it become fashionable to start hating on happy, healthy relationships? Tumblr spends all day and night complaining about sexism and toxic fictional relationships, but as soon as a genuinely healthy couple that’s rooted in years of trust and affection presents itself, they don’t like it.

Stop demonizing healthy relationships. Love triangles, cheating and mental games are not romantic. It’s creepy.

a little game of stealing

Inej and Kaz have an little game they like to play because they don’t see each other much anymore. It goes something like this, whenever Inej is in Ketterdam she’ll break into Kaz’s room and steal something of his. Nothing major, just a hat, a pen, or a tie. Then hide it somewhere around the Slat. Kaz will, in return, sneak onto Inej’s boat and steal something of hers and hide it somewhere on the ship. So then both of them have until they meet again to find what was stolen and where it is hidden. And if either fail, they owe the other a giant stack of waffles.
