people get married up there

My mom might actually get to come home tomorrow!! Hopefully, at least, doing everyone’s laundry, and dishes, and shit isn’t fun…. I even had to vacuum… I didn’t even know we had one.

ok ok so persons a and b are on opposite sides of a wedding, right? they don’t know each other, but they’re both very close to the two people getting married so they team up to make sure the wedding goes perfectly. The wedding goes to complete shit, of course - the two sides got into a dance off that ended with aunt donna getting a broken leg, the hotel fucked up the reservations so everyone had to stay in a tiny motel, the cake was late, the ring bearer swallowed one of the rings and had to go to the hospital, just everything that could go wrong, did.

and through it all, persons a and b were fucking going insane trying to keep everything under control and bonded over their shared stress and horror, but then the wedding is finally over and the people who got married aren’t super upset because it was all actually kinda funny, and then a and b are like “we don’t have anything to do now but we think we aged twenty years just from the stress so we’re going on a coffee date” and the rest is history

Bonus: this story ends up being one of the speeches that the best man/ maid of honour tells at their wedding on how they met

Imagine Harrison Wells asking you to marry him. 

You laughed at the text your friend had sent you. You had been chatting with them about Harrison, gushing about how amazing he was and what he had done for your anniversary.

Harrison glanced up at you, a slight smile on his lips, “What’s so funny?”

You grinned as you flashed him your phone, “My friend wants to know why we aren’t getting married yet.”

Harrison’s response shocked you, “Why not?”

You blinked, unsure of what you had just heard, “What?”

Harrison smiled and ducked his head, “Why not get married?”

Heat crept up your cheeks, “Most people get a ring before asking someone to marry them,” you pointed out with a laugh.

Harrison shrugged sheepishly, “I’m sure it can be arranged. Assuming you want to go through with it.”

You wiped at your eyes, your smile feeling too big for your face, “Only if you say it properly.”

He chuckled, eyes twinkling with amusement, “I hope you’ll forgive me for not getting down on one knee. [f/n] [l/n], will you marry me?”

Alright!! I finished drawing this! I’ve been following this Tamil soap opera called “Kalyanam Mudhal Kadhal Varai” (”From Marriage to Love”) for a while, and it’s pretty great. The story is about two people who hate each others’ guts…but then they end up getting married. So you can see them slowly falling in love and all, but they just won’t!!! stop!!! being!!! tsundere???? I both love and hate this show. Also the female protagonist is really badass and she takes no bull whatsoever. 

(Also I wish wearing flower festoons in your hair is something I can regularly do here in the U.S.. I demand flower shops that sell these!) 

You can be married and still have your own life. People make it seem like once you get married you HAVE to give up everything.
Like no, you don’t have to do that.
It’s your marriage..
Give your spouse their rights and make sure you get yours but don’t give up who you are. You can be an amazing wife or husband, be a good Muslim, and be independent.
Marriage shouldn’t be the end, but a new beginning.

Dear White Friends,

Stop saying using my existence as an excuse to demolish your chances of being racist. I’m not your fucking prop, I’m not here to give you cool points. No, you can’t say nigga because you have a black friend. And if a stereotyped sentence triple dog dares itself out of your mouth in hopes of a laugh, you got me fucked up. 

Sincerely, 

Your Black Friend

Strange Magic Wedding Prompt: That Moment When Bog First Sees Marianne Walk Down the Isle

My heart flutters at the thought of him swooning, tearing up, having to keep it together and doing so by the barest thread of his own will, watching her float like mist on water. 

Watching her wear a gown of Dark Forest petals and wonder if it was jealous of the comparison and competition when brought up next to her eyes that he could swim poetry in. 

Watching her ease towards him on a walk far too long but not long enough- for if he could just pause this moment and watch it over and over again… but no. For even in its perfection -watching her and only watching her- there is nothing quite like her joining the space beside him as they bond their lives together in something already complete. 

For marriage is not another step. They’d been married for so long. And yet it was different, then… watching her… 

…his Princess… 

…his Queen… 

…his wife… 

And it would be perfect.

And then my brains just like, lol, nah, you know it wouldn’t even be like that because dorks be dorks. 

He’d stand there screaming “MARIANNE, MARIANNE WE’RE GETTIN’ MARRIED! MARIANNE HURRY YER ASS UP! MARIANNE I’M SO EXCITED! MARIANNE YEE’RE SO BEAUTIFUL AN’ I LOVE YE! NOW HURRY UP BECAUSE I’M EXCITED! CAN YOU JOG? JUST JOG MARIANNE! AND YOU LOT! D’YE SEE HER? DY’E SEE THAT FAIRY!? SHE’S MAH WIFE! SHE’S THE PERSON I’M MARRYIN! SO YOU LOT CAN JUST BUGGER OFF! MARIANNE! DID YE HEAR!? WE’RE GETTIN’ MARRIED! MARIANNE CAN YOU WALK ANY FASTER!? OMG AND LOOK AT MY BOUTONNIERE MARAINNE! IT’S THE ONE FROM WHEN WE MET! GET IT! CUZ IT’S SO SPE-MARIANNE WHY ARE YOU TURNING AROUND? MARIANNE WHY ARE YOU PUTTING YOUR FACE IN YOUR HANDS! I’M CHOKED UP TOO DARLING! I GET IT! BUT CAN YOU HURRY UP!? PLEASE? NO DON’T BANG YOUR HEAD ON A WALL! MARIANNE!? MARIANNE I’M SO EXCITED! NOW GET ON UP HERE AND MARRY ME!”

And Marianne is just like “you are the man I’ve chosen to love…”

All in all it’d be a wonderful wedding. Either way it turns out. 

honestly there are so many accounts of people getting married and the groom and his family end up being horrible people who lied and pretended to be amazing just to rope the girl into it. like theyre so stupid and ugly and women who get out of those situations are so lucky but it makes me sick to my stomach thinking about all of the women who don’t get out of it and have to just deal with having an absolute cactus of a husband as well as his nasty family. may Allah give them strength. 

I leave for not even one day...

…and Soleil, a character who was not even near the FE14 limelight, has become the subject of the biggest shitstorm in recent FE history.

So many people take this game way too seriously, like, it’s a Strategy JRPG with a romancing mechanic. What is so precious and holy about Fire Emblem specifically that gets people all up in a huff about who can marry who, why, and how.

A few fan-translation errors make people go ballistic about Soleil and Kamui’s supports, amongst other things, but for right now, the focus is on Soleil/Kamui’s support string.

So, let’s get things straight here:

As many of us know, Soleil likes girls, mostly preferring them to guys for a few different reasons. She does not, however, like girls sexually, as she has no female romance options in a game that is fine with adding lesbian relationships. I repeat, as hard as it is to believe SOLEIL IS NOT CANONICALLY ATTRACTED TO FEMALES. SOLEIL PREFERS MALES SEXUALLY, AND, WHILE SHE COULD POSSIBLY BE INTERPRETED AS BISEXUAL, HER ATTRACTION TO FEMALES IS NOTHING MORE THAN A REFERENCE TO HER FATHER’S GIMMICK FROM AWAKENING. THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO IT THAN THAT.

Now that that’s out of the way, on to the other problem encountered. Kamui’s alleged use of “drugs” to forcibly switch Soleil from a “thriving homosexual/bisexual” to straight, just to be with him.

How the FUCK did you get that from this support string!?

Like, can 0% of you shitposters read?

Admittedly, Kamui did go about the magic dust part all wrong, nothing was fine about slipping it into her drink, BUT HE NEVER DID IT TO GET SOLEIL TO LIKE HIM. AS SEEN IN SOLEIL’S OTHER SUPPORTS, SHE IS PERFECTLY FINE WITH LOVING GUYS, NO PROBLEMS THERE, BUT KAMUI’S INTENTIONS WERE SIMPLY “I’m going to help a dear friend get over her crippling fainting episodes from being around cute girls”.

Kamui gave Soleil the powder to make her see all males as females, to help her get used to being around girls so her fainting spells wouldn’t become a detrimental problem to her on the battlefield. Soleil accepted this help completely of her own free will, and this was certainly not done through Kamui’s “secret agenda” to get in her pants. Male!Kamui is honestly one of the sweetest, most innocent guys in the game, and you’re all antagonizing him.

His intentions were innocent.

Soleil, through the use of the powder, got over her fainting spells, and yes, in their S-Rank support, she did admit to liking the female form of Kamui she saw, BUT SHE ALSO SAID SHE LOVED THE MALE VERSION SHE WAS SEEING TOO.

When I first read the supports, I could not believe that people actually found it offensive, which it really fucking isn’t. It’s sweet that Kamui cares about his army enough to help them no matter the cost. Even if Soleil WAS canonically bisexual, she was still perfectly fine with loving Kamui in their S-Rank, because that’s what bisexual means, liking both men and women sexually. She also arrived at her conclusion that she was in love with him 100% on her own. She fell in love with Kamui just as much as he was in love with her.

Plus, it’s a goddamn video game. If your mind’s too cloudy to fucking separate reality from fiction, things that matter from things that don’t, or being able to read something and form your own opinions and interpretations of the source material, then go outside for a while and come back when you’re ready to stop poisoning our fandom.

Go back to complaining about Camilla’s boobs, or Charlotte’s design, or flippin anything that actually has merit.

Not hating on characters just because someone you listened to can’t read half a paragraph of text correctly before jumping to conclusions.

You guys are the worst.

lgbt+ people: please dont have a plebiscite people will kill themselves we’re begging you dont do it please its not worth it we will wait for a labor government

straight people: whats the big deal with the plebiscite why are gay people so mad about it they will be able to get married shut up and just be grateful # gay rights !!! # equality !!!

a letter to young women,

please do as much possible as you can in one lifetime, without the constrains of marriage limiting you. read, write, study, travel and be free of all things whilst you are still young. of course marriage can be a beautiful union of two people, however when you’re young you need to use these years to define who the hell you are first. you need to shape and mould and learn to like who you are without being restricted with the responsibility of all else. most young people who get married end up divorced, and regretting the fact they wasted their years trying to reconcile a relationship when they should have spent it on themselves. please, i encourage you to take all the time in the world on yourself before ever getting married. please.
