people should talk more

i was…trying to find some things i could do in the area to connect with other queer people today.  cause like…i was feeling really lonely and hopeless in terms of finding a potential s.o. and i thought maybe i should take some initiative and start looking for people

but like….everything is labeled as ‘lesbian meet up groups.’  and…and i’m not a lesbian.  i’m definitely sapphic/wlw, i definitely have a preference for female-identifying people, but i don’t identify as a lesbian.  I’ve done a lot of soul searching on that and i know my attractions are heavily preferenced but not exclusive.

so on that note…

am I allowed in a space labeled ‘for lesbians?’  i feel shut out just because of that word.  even if i am allowed, am i going to feel at all comfortable or accepted there?  I haven’t come across this myself but i’ve had friends who have been harassed for biphobia and panphobia and acephobia and i’m like…scared.  i’m scared to try and enter something labeled ‘for lesbians’ because……..i don’t know if it’s a place i’m allowed to enter, either by the space’s rules or just the group’s norms and notions.

What she says: I’m fine. 

What she means: The final battle between Azula and Zuko may be simultaneously the most beautiful piece of animation ever made and the most beautiful fight choreography ever produced, in addition to which the soundtrack for the battle is so spine-tinglingly good that it deserves an award all to its own and I know it’s like eight years down the line but seriously people should still be talking about it why aren’t we making more media for youth which is this high in quality? 

One of my pet peeves is people on this website reblogging that one image of the space shuttle Columbia breaking up during re-entry to their “aesthetic” blogs, like…um….

Zimbits AU where your world is black and white until you hear your soulmate laugh

-

Jack knows his parents’ story off by heart.

Bob had been on the ice at an away game. The crowd was screaming; it was overtime. Things had been a bit tense. 

And then Bob had put a puck in the net of the opposition and that was it. The disappointed home audience had fallen into a quiet grumble after some polite clapping. Many hands were slapped on Bob’s back as the team skated towards the edge of the ice. Bob had been just about to leave the rink, and then-

A laugh. A snorting, wonderful laugh, and his world filled with color.

He had frozen where he stood, ears caught on the sound of that laugh and the voice that followed.

“I told you, didn’t I? No one’s got it like Bad Bobby Z!”

It was his turn to let out a laugh and he did, with gusto. His voice boomed so loud it had seemed to reverberate around the arena, every head swiveling to the source of the noise.

Every time he told that story, Bob swore blind he heard his soulmate’s gasp in the ensuing silence. Alicia would roll her eyes fondly, stating that she did not gasp, thank you very much, and that the dreadful nickname she’d called him had been popular among hockey fans at the time. 

Whatever the truth, they’d introduced themselves moments later and were married within the year. It was like that, with soulmates. Instantaneous.

Jack’s not heard that story since before the Draft. He knows people think if he’d found his soulmate before- before, he wouldn’t have done it. But people tend to over romanticize things out of habit. In the end, soulmates and laughter and colors had very little to do with how he ended up here.

but what if Vax’s whole Fate Touched gig isn’t directly related to his own actions but rather how he holds his family together

I am three months to twenty-three, daydreaming of when I was seventeen. I become obsessed with things I took for granted: bike rides with my sisters and the fine luxury of a backyard. I should have talked to more people in school. I should have written more, taken more pictures. Here: here is me out to breakfast with my dad. We’re at the diner, New Jersey bagels with taylor ham and cheese, and I paid the bill with babysitting money. Here: here are my best friends sitting with me on the kitchen floor. The dining room table is overrated and much too far from the fridge. In this picture, school is out for spring break and none of us quite know where we’re going yet. I should have absorbed every summer sun; said to myself, I am fifteen and survived my parents’ divorce. – I am sixteen and in love with a boy too good for me – I am seventeen and
 I am seventeen.
 And things won’t last, but they shouldn’t. That’s why they’re special. That’s why they’re worth saving.
 
 I am three months to twenty-three, and I promise to do more.
—  Schuyler Peck, Twenty-Three

What I love so much about this ep was how they started with “whats the point of telling someone how you feel if you’ll just get shot down” it’s such a relatable feeling and by the end he gets his answer. This scene just did such a great job of showing both sides of this situation and the emotions that built up over four years and how much each felt better by finally being able to say what was on each others minds all along. Madrame might not have gotten the answer he wanted but he got the answer he needed and now never has to wonder what if again and got his answer that there was nothing wrong with him and just a roll of the dice that the outcomes ended as they did and can move on a lot more confident then he started.

In honor of my third year on here and somehow reaching 700 followers, I thought I should do another follow forever. I still don’t really follow that many blogs (I think I’m too picky), but I wanted to do this again. Thank you for following me even though I don’t have much to offer besides reblogged things. Mutuals are bolded and everyone else is also super cool.

Damn, I've been listening to Chanel for about 2 hours on repeat and i'm on the verge of tears. Validation feels so fantastic when I see bisexual erasure on a daily basis. Bisexuals don't get represented that frequently (along with so many other beautiful terms of LGBTQ+) and it's so great that a famous male of color validate us lil Baby Bi's. Jesus. God Bless Frank Ocean.

i got emotional too! i don’t think he realizes just how much validation he gave the Bis. more bisexual artists talking about bisexuality 2k17 please! more people should feel confident and proud enough to wanna rep that and talk about how unique and queer it is because i feel like bisexuality is so damn cool and i wish other Bis saw that too.

Favorite underrated books?

I’m not sure what counts as “underrated” from what I read since most are classics & are known well enough in literary circles… but here’s some that I still think more people should read/talk about:

The Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac
Henry and June by Anais Nin
The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje
The Waves by Virginia Woolf
The Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson
Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
Notes from Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky 
The Blue Octavo Notebooks by Franz Kafka
