personal space was never an option

Darkiplier and Antisepticeye

Ok first of all, holy mother of fucks, @markiplier ‘s valentine’s day video was absolutely the best thing ever! (along with @therealjacksepticeye ‘s halloween video).

if you haven’t watch Mark’s video, I suggest you you go now before reading this post (if you actually even read it xD) because it might contain spoilers.

Ok so we now have physical proof of Darkiplier’s existence, just like Anti’s. I love how they both act alike with the glitches and all, but they’re still so different from each other. from what I saw with Jack and Anti, it seems like Anti fights Jack for control of the physical body. Anti was restless, he’d do anything and everything to take full control of Jack’s body, including killing Jack which is kinda what he did in the halloween video when he cut his throat. He just wanted freedom, and he has no problem in blaming us (the fans) for his actions towards Jack (“you all said my name”, “YOU” “its all your fault” “you all made this happen” “you could’ve stopped me… but you just watched as this happened” “now he’s gone forever”). He knows exactly what to say to make us feel guilty. that sounds an awful lot like a sociopath. I might be wrong but I just did some research (I wouldn’t be writing this without doing my homework ahah) and some of the traits are:

  • Repeated violations of the law
  • Pervasive lying and deception
  • Physical aggressiveness
  • Reckless disregard for safety of self or others
  • Consistent irresponsibility in work and family environments
  • Lack of remorse

you can see most of these behaviors in Anti. Antisepticeye is a sociopath.

now Darkiplier on the other hand…

from what I saw in mark’s valentine’s day video, Dark looked like he had more self control. he seemed awfully calm. he wasn’t trying to fight Mark for a chance of controling the body. he was waiting for Mark to actually let him in (”I’ve been waiting patiently” “he promised he would let me in again”) and this makes me think… Dark is strong enough to take over Mark’s body without actually attacking Mark the way Anti did with Jack. and Mark knows it. so he made a deal. he would let Dark get in from time to time, if he promised not to hurt anyone. obviously Dark wouldn’t keep that promise like we see in the 14 million subs video for example. now lets take a look at some of the psychopath traits:

  • Lack of guilt/remorse
  • Lack of empathy
  • Lack of deep emotional attachments
  • Narcissism
  • Superficial charm
  • Dishonesty
  • Manipulativeness
  • Reckless risk-taking

I don’t know about you but these scream Darkiplier to me. you can see how emotionally detached he is from us. he just wants to toy with our emotions. this is all but a game to him. and he doesn’t care about the consequences (”take your pick. anything of four different choices”, “and lets see how far down this rabbit hole really goes” “so take your pick. show me what you got”, “and maybe we’ll have a good date after all”). he gives us a sense of security and happiness(?) (”if dinner is what you want, then I can provide”, “and I can take you to wherever you’d like to go”), only to be crushed by a statement that makes us fear for our own life (”I can specially take you to places where you DON’T want to go”), leaving us on the edge. he makes us think he actually cares about us (”I’ve been waiting a long time to get some personal space between us”), when he actually just wants to hurt us (”THERE’S NOTHING YOU OR HE CAN DO TO STOP ME”, “youre never, ever going to escape me”).

and if you notice, after you’ve chosen who to kill, you’ll see that if you choose the left option, Mark looks so worried and empathetic over us, trying to reassure us… after all we just killed someone and he’s worried about us (compared to the Mark we’re left with, if you choose the right option). at the end, it turns out we killed the wrong Mark, and we’re left with Dark in front of us. for a second we believed we killed the right Mark, seeing how calm and not evil M(D)ark was acting towards us. that is manipulation. Dark made us believe we were safe now, that we made the right choice, only to crush that sense of safeness right when we were starting to get confortable and at peace (”oops… looks like you made the wrong choice”, “but now we’re going to be together…. forever”)

I strongly believe Darkiplier is a psychopath and Antisepticeye is a sociopath. they both act differently towards Jack and Mark and their fans, but at the same time, in a very similar way. I believe the reason Anti is so glitchy and Dark is so “HD quality” (xD) is because Anti forced his way into Jack and obviously thats gonna leave some damage, while Dark waited (im)patiently for his turn to take over the body.

I just want to congratulate @therealjacksepticeye and @markiplier for portraying these characters, made up by the fans, so unbelievably well, and thank them for taking their time to make something, created by the community, come true like this. you guys are amazing.

this is just my theory, if you disagree or have something to say, I’d be more than happy to hear your theories, but don’t be rude or anything.

also, if you read this giant post till the end, thank you so much for taking your time to do so :) sorry if this was a bit confusing xD

Robin’s Nest: Part 16

Prompt: Where the robin’s were Bruce’s and Batmom’s biological kids

Words: 1081

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, Part 12 , Part 13, Part 14, Part 15

“That storm is pretty bad.” You glance out the window and can’t help but agree. Hurricane Renee had been on the news for days, and now that she had hit, she seemed determined to live up to her name.

           Unfortunately for you, this meant that your seven children were cooped up inside. The manor had become a complete mess between various board games, and one or two games of extreme hide and seek.

           So far, the casualties included a chandelier, a Ming vase, two of Bruce’s golf clubs, and Alfred’s blender. You’d left your children to the mercy of the butler and retreated to the library to find Helena staring out the window.

           Your daughter was a daddy’s girl and had been from day one. She was fierce, tough and outspoken, and she hated storms with a passion. More often than not, lightning and thunder filled nights found her in your bed with you and Bruce.

           Hurricanes seemed to be even worse. The usually rambunctious girl was sullen, and more than a little pouty. This was proved even further when she snuggled up to you. Dick, Jason, and Cass were your snugglers. Helena preferred her personal space.

           Never one to pass up an opportunity, you pull the girl close. Kissing the top of her head you say, “Don’t worry baby girl, Daddy will be home soon.”

           She sighs, “I hate business trips.”

           You smile, “You and me both.”

           “This was a long one.”

           You nod. Two weeks was a long time for Bruce to be gone. Typically, he skyped conferences, went only for a few days, or took the family with him. That hadn’t been an option this time.

           When midnight comes and goes without any word, you start to get anxious. Bruce’s plane had landed before the storm had really started. The closing off of streets had kept him from coming straight home, but he had still called to check in. But now, he wasn’t answering his phone and that worried you more than a little.

           You’re brought out of your thoughts when someone yells, “Code green.”

           Pushing your husband to the back of your mind, you spring out of your office chair and towards the clock. You turn the hands to your anniversary date, and make your way down to the cave. You find your Dick, Jason, and Cass suiting up, and raise an eyebrow in question, “And where exactly do you think you’re going?”

           Dick’s face is straight laced, serious as can be. A perfect imitation of Bruce’s. “The Riddler has cut power to the entire city. He’s offered a challenge, if someone can issue a challenge that can stump him, he’ll turn the power back on.”

           You bite your lip, before issuing your orders, “You’re not going out there alone.”

           You watch Dick’s and Jason’s eyes go wide, “Mom!” You listen as Tim turns in the computer chair to face you. You take a deep breath, “I said alone. Call in Wally and Barry.”

           You see Jason hesitate, “Dad …”

           “Isn’t here. You’re not going out there without a League member. Hell, I’ll call in Superman himself before I let you go out there alone. I know you’ve been doing this for years, but I’m still your mother. I have my limits.”

           It takes half an hour for the speedsters to arrive. Even then, you’re left with a queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach. You watch them go before taking over Tim’s chair.

           You’d spent less and less time in the cave as the boys had gotten older. You imagined, you’d spend even less time there as your children got older. Tim would soon become the next Robin, his training was almost done, and then Helena and Damian would take over. Eventually, Terry would start his training, and that broke your heart. Your last baby was growing up, and it made you want to cry.

           It’s a long night. A very long night, with more close calls than you care to admit. By the time dawn breaks, the storm is still going strong, but your kids are back home. You tend to the cuts and bruises before sending them to bed.

           You’re on your fifth cup of coffee when you get a call from the hospital. There’s been an accident with your husband, and you’re needed. Now. You’re certain that your heart stops at the words.

           One look out the window tells you that you’re not getting anywhere right now. Between the winds, the flooding, and the damage from Riddler’s attack, you’re stuck. You’re forced to wait two days, before going to the hospital, alone.

           You arrive at Gotham general looking a mess. And you’re certain that at least one paparazzi had taken your picture. Still, you walk through the hospital with the authority of someone who’s family has donated enough money to build two new wings.

           You find your husband sleeping in the waiting room. He’s wearing scrubs of all things, and sprawled across several chairs. So of course, you hit him. He startles awake and stares at you while you rant, “How dare you Bruce Wayne. Not one freaking phone call. Not one. I thought you were dead in the morgue, or lying here in a coma. But no, I find you here dressed as though you just performed surgery. I have been worried sick.

           “I lied to our children. I said that you called, that you were stuck at the airport. How DARE YOU!”

           Bruce takes it all in stride, before pulling you in for a hug. He holds you while you cry, and says “I’m so sorry. They only had time for one emergency call, and I thought I asked them to tell you that I am okay. I am so sorry.”

           You take deep breaths to calm yourself, before asking “What happened Bruce? Why are you in a hospital?”

           He wipes his hands over his face, “I was driving home, when there was an accident. Someone spun out on the road, crashing into me before spinning into another car. The driver, and two passengers were killed. There was one other survivor. A twelve-year-old boy, his name is Duke. I was able to get him out, and get an ambulance out but there was nothing they could do for his parents, or the driver. I couldn’t leave him alone.”

           You sink down beside him, “What are you thinking Bruce?”

           He stares at you, “How would you feel about having and eighth kid?”

Okay, I have a ton of one-sentence prompts to fill, a gazillion prompt requests and two of these prompts lurking half-finished in my documents folder but YET the Bughead pic for tomorrow’s episode got releashed and Betty’s wandering hand got my mind in dark imaginative places. I thought I was the only thirsty one but I guess there are a lot of us out there so you asked and I happily deliver. This is SIN, this is something I don’t know where it came from. Nevertheless, I hope you all enjoy! <3</b>

“Well, never thought I would be stood up by Jughead Jones but I guess there’s a first time for everything.” Veronica mused around the stripped straw of her milkshake, lopsided smirk intact and chocolate eyes shining in teasing, feeling Archie’s chest vibrate from light laughter besides her, the back of her arm brushing casually his pec.

Betty rolled her pretty eyes from across them, the happy grin that she was sporting all day turning even more delighted. “He’s on his way.” She let them now, abandoning her phone in the space next to her on the leather seat, its screen still illuminated by the private chat with Juggie <3 on top, the kissy emojis she had sent him last depicting her playful and bubbly mood. “They had a lot to talk with his dad now that everything’s over.” She sighed in content, still trying to settle down after the emotional roller-coaster of the previous days, the two other teens on the table nodding in understanding before all three of them engaged themselves in an easy-going chat about tonight’s successful jubilee.

As per queue, the characteristic chime that indicated the arrival of new customers echoed in the small diner and Betty whiped her head around, golden locks dancing graciously around her beautiful face, only for her perpetual grin to turn into a full, dashing smile, along with rosy cheeks and all, at the sight of her boyfriend, smiling charmingly back at her and making his way to their now personal booth in his typical lazy strides.

Lance used to talk to Hunk about Keith

Hear me out…

After rewatching ep 1 of Voltron for the nth time, I just started to think about something.

So basically I relate a lot to Keith, and one of the things I noticed is that in ep 1, is that Keith tends to stay close to Shiro and/or Lance. I’m assuming because those are the people he is more comfortable with. I mean, If I got stuck in space with a group of random people I would totally stay close to those I know better. Thank you very much.

Point is, I never saw Keith show he knew Hunk. Even during the bike chasing scene he calls Hunk “Big guy”

Which makes me think that Keith doesn’t know (or remember) Hunk.

Now there are two options here.
1) Keith and Lance were in a different class from Hunk’s
2) They were all in the same class

I personally believe more in the second option since in Pidge’s flashbacks, when we see Lance and Hunk at the garrison, they clearly knew each other, and from the “hasta la later, Keith” we know that they both knew Keith. 

Either way, Hunk wasn’t around Keith enough time for him to remember him but
on the other hand, when Keith appears and Lance says “It’s Keith” Hunk immediately replies “Keith? You sure?” while pidge goes “Who’s Keith!”
which leaves you with the idea that Hunk knew exactly who Keith was.

And how did he know that?

Definitely not because he was friends with him because Keith would have remembered him for sure. But because Lance talked to Hunk about Keith.
It’s pretty canon if you ask me.

Just want to note that Lance probably only talked about how he was going to beat Keith’s ass or kept declaring his rivalry. But point is, he certainly talked a lot about Keith, for Hunk to know exactly who Lance was talking about in that split moment.

I have been wanting to invest in a cintiq 22HD tablet and want to get one for my birthday but they are very expensive (like $2000) and i'm not sure if its worth switching from my wacom. I have trouble with the disconnect between a normal tablet and hoped the cintiqu could fix it but wanted to know if you feel like it helped your art or if it was worth it?

I would say only get it if you draw on a daily basis, because otherwise it’s not a good investment. Getting a Cintiq does not improve or change the way you draw, it’s more of a practical thing for setting up a good work-space. I upgraded to it because I mainly work on a graphic novel, so I need to reference back to previous pages and have a lot of files open at once - which requires a lot of screen space. 

Anyway, I personally never felt a huge disconnect while using a regular tablet, but it also depends on what type of things you draw. If it’s a lot of linework that requires precision, a tablet screen is definitely better, but if it’s lineless painting, there’s actually no difference between a tablet and a screen to me (and I prefer a regular tablet for that because it allows you to sit back and not hunch over the screen.)

If the disconnect really bothers you, maybe try looking into less expensive options? I used a tablet screen laptop for a very long time (probably like 8 years or something, and I went through 2 of them) before I upgraded to a Cintiq, and the only difference between them in my experience is the amount of screen space. This is the one I used -

It says sold out, but you can probably find it elsewhere, and it’s dirt-cheap compared to a Cintiq screen and is an actual computer lol. The worst thing about buying a Cintiq was making peace with the fact that I paid 3,000$ for a MONITOR LOL. It’s way too expensive. 

anonymous asked:

do you think potentially they will just have one bedroom to sleep in with an amalgamation of their stuff in it?? or do you think they will keep the v separate dnp individual bedrooms (just wondering cos they seem a lot more comfortable lately but maybe not that comfortable idk) x

i think it’s entirely possible we won’t see their bedrooms at all and they’ll just have filming spaces in a different part of their house. it’s always seemed remarkable to me that for how private dnp are, they’ve allowed this massive audience to see inside the places where they sleep and have all sorts of other intimate moments. it wouldn’t shock me to find out that in the new place we don’t get to see into every corner of the house like we did in this flat. that being said, whether we see them or not, i rly do think it’s possible they continue having separate bedrooms! for two people who spend nearly every second of their lives together and whose home is the center not just of their personal lives but much of their professional lives as well, it seems really important for them to have some sense of individuality through maintaining their own spaces, designed to suit their own needs and aesthetic preferences. i’ve always loved that about their setup and it seems likely that they’d continue it!!!! if not separate bedrooms, the other option i could see them going for is a place with two separate offices that they could then design in their own way and film in, and one big bedroom that we never see!

Cartoon Gaston V. Live Action Gaston

I’m a HUGE fan of the Beauty and the Beast remake, and one of the things I have yet to gush about is the changes they made to Gaston. I LOVE a complex villain, and the writers did an amazing job delivering a character who is both more sympathetic and more evil than his cartoon counterpart. SPOILERS BELOW!

Friendship With LeFou

Live action Gaston and Lefou have a much deeper relationship than their cartoon counterparts. Original LeFou is from the first minutes getting smacked by Gaston gun. When he tries to raise the potential issues with Gaston courting Belle, not only does Gaston keep interrupting him, but threatens him into silence by yanking him up by the shirt collar. He hits Lefou on the head for making a joke about Maurice that he just laughed at. He forces LeFou to wait for Maurice in a SNOW BANK, potentially for days. They are not true friends by any stretch of the imagination.

2017 Gaston on the other hand does have a friendship with LeFou, even if it is not a particularly healthy one, and completely implodes at the end. Gaston listens to LeFou when he voices concerns about Belle and actually agrees with his points about his differences from Belle. He talks to LeFou about his feelings. When LeFou “goes a little too far” during Gaston, he doesn’t fight him, hit him or otherwise shame him for it. At the end of the songs he even tells LeFou he is wonderful and asks why he hasn’t been “snatched up” by a girl yet. LeFou knows Gaston well enough to calm him during his ‘rage’ episodes. 

Somehow this all makes what happens at the end so much worse, where he forces LeFou to be an accessory to murder, to lie in front of the whole town, and participate in sending an innocent man to an asylum. He also threatens to send LeFou to the asylum, if he doesn’t play along. Finally he throws LeFou into harms way during the castle fight and then leaves him there. 

Level of Affection For Belle

Cartoon Gaston doesn’t know Belle as a person at all. He is so delusional about who she is, he believes marrying him would ‘make all her dreams come true’. He sets up their wedding and invites the whole town before he even proposes. When she calls him ‘primeval’ he thinks she means it as a compliment. His big effort in “wooing her” is asking her to come look at his hunting trophies. He tells her she shouldn’t, as a woman, be reading or thinking. He casually drops her book in the mud and later puts his muddy feet on top of (another?) one of her books. When Maurice says Belle has been kidnapped by a Beast, he doesn’t even bother to check her house.

Live Action Gaston DOES know who Belle is, at least a little. He acknowledges she’s as “argumentative as she is beautiful”, but says she is the only woman in town he has feelings for. He’s aware she is resisting his charms and calls her lack of flattery “outrageously attractive”. He makes more of an effort to woo her. He brings her flowers and asks her to dinner (okay asks if she’ll cook him dinner, but still better than ‘look at my trophies’). He doesn’t mock her for her reading, but instead fakes an interest in it, so she’ll like him better. He practices his marriage proposal in the mirror which includes the words ‘no one deserves you’. When the villagers mess with her invention. he tries to make her feel better, telling her that the school master never really liked him either. He tries to give her advice on how become more accepted by the village (which to him is a very important thing). He says that he’s changed and could make her happy, rather than saying that she could change and make him happy. Finally and the most sympathetic thing that he does is that when Maurice turns up with his crazy story about Belle’s abduction, despite that fact he doesn’t believe it, he’s worried enough that he accompanies Maurice on his search for her. He wasn’t just humoring Maurice to earn his blessing, he was concerned about “wolves, frostbite, and starvation.” He gave up his evening and risked the town’s scorn for following Maurice, to ensure Belle was safe.   

For me Cartoon Gaston’s descent into darkest is ALL about ego. Live action Gaston on the other hand has a little Congreve going on, “Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned,” which maybe explains why he goes even darker than original Gaston. 

Evil Actions

For the sake of comparison, let’s ignore that things both versions of Gaston do: 1) Inciting a mob to attack a sentient creature with no proof it’s at all dangerous and one person testifying that it’s not, and 2) dishonorably shooting/stabbing the Beast twice. 

Live Action Gaston one ups Cartoon Gaston on every level. Cartoon Gaston invades Belle’s personal space during his proposal, but he never actually touches her, and being fair to him, her responses during his proposal are politely vague. Live Action Belle states very clearly in their conversation that she doesn’t want to marry him. Live Action Gaston responds by not only grabbing her dress, but tells her her options are basically marry him or starve.

Both Gastons treat Maurice like garbage, but again live action Gaston is the worse of the two. Cartoon Gaston plots to use the threat of Maurice being sent to the asylum to coerce Belle into marriage. Sick, but ultimately Maurice’s imprisonment wasn’t his intended end game. Live Action Gaston strikes Maurice hard enough to knock him out, then ties him up to be eaten by wolves. When that doesn’t work he tries to get rid of him via asylum.  

During the Castle Raid and scenes leading up to it Gaston threatens his best friend with the asylum, offers him up to the castle staff, and then abandons him during the fight. Finally, in a small, but vicious move he tells Beast that Belle sent him. It may seem small, compared to all the other stuff, but still that is a pretty s***** thing to do.

My conclusion is the live action movies’ writers are geniuses, because the most horrific bad guys are the ones that feel like real people, layered and complicated.

jupiterhyde  asked:

Why do you think fans and Jackie forgive Hyde's shitty actions towards Jackie so easily? I love him with all my heart but I find some of his worst actions towards Jackie too wrong to look away from it.

I spent long minutes looking at this question because I’m not sure what you’re talking about. Is it the cheating arc at the end of season 5? His initial assholery and silence during the first weeks of their relationship in season 5? The oocness of season 7? Season 8? Or is it the pre-relationship assholery? Because I have an answer for each, and it may not be what you’re expecting.

Be aware of the long ass meta, kids. Here we go.

Pre-relationship Hyde and Jackie (season 2-3)

SHE WAS STALKING HIM. It may hadn’t been the best to tell her to get off, but she was pestering him and shoving herself to him with little respect for his privacy, alone time and space in all kinds. She’s constantly getting him in trouble with his fosters parents, friends and even the law.

I do believe Jackie’s intentions of trying something with him, her feelings for him, were honests. But he has know her, until now, only as Kelso’s girlfriend and he has seen the kind of not-so-good person she can be to her couple. Not to mention he probably feels like she’s only using him to get back at Kelso or get over him, both options being honest to God ugly.

And he doesn’t know she really wants them to try because she never approaches him like any other normal person would: TALKING. And not yelling or demanding, but talking. Instead, she tries to make him go with her to places he doesn’t like, she puts him into stuff without asking him first and wants him to simply obey her. THAT’S NOT GOOD AT ALL.

I love Jackie with all my heart, but in this moment of the show, she has little respect for Hyde’s bondaries and it pisses him off. It would freak you out, too, I’m sure. It would piss ME off! And while yes, he was hard to her some times (especially with that ugly ass haiku), you have to take in mind this has been happening for MONTHS and his has his limits, kind of a temper too, and she doesn’t take no for an answer. WHICH IS WRONG.

So yeah, he was in his right to be an ass.

“I need a place to stay.” - Conor Maynard

 It was nearly midnight when his doorbell rang. Conor, who had been casually watching some Netflix on his couch, had not been expecting anybody to come around, but answered the door nevertheless. To say that he was surprised as he saw (Y/N) standing in front of him, her cheeks tear-stained and her eyes puffy, was an understatement. He had not seen her for a solid two months, although they had been talking everyday before that. But she left, not leaving any clue where she had gone, taking the half of his heart with her. She must have been unaware of that, but it still had hurt Conor to a point where he didn’t even want to get up anymore. It had been better than, but anybody who knew him could say that he wasn’t himself since she had been gone.

Little did he know that she left because of him. She had fallen for him, hard. But she was never a person to commit, so she took the chance and ran, choosing to get away from him. She thought that maybe she might feel different if there was space between them, so she went. It hurt her to leave him, but she couldn’t think of anything else. Confessing was not an option she was fond of. So she went away, attempting to start all over. And she found another job, another boy who could make her feel great, but she knew that Conor could make her feel better and he didn’t even need to touch her for that. She knew she wouldn’t stay with that boy for long, but for the moment she was okay with it. That was until she caught him with another girl in bed, and she ran away again. Where to, she didn’t know. But she found herself near London a couple of hours later. Her heart must have taken the lead as she let her guard slip for just a tiny moment. And here she was, standing in front of his door, making him feel like she was ripping out his heart all over again.

“I need a place to stay.”

The way she said this really got to him, the way her voice cracked in the end kind of cracked his heart, too.

“Come in.”

He closed the door behind her and turned around, expecting her to put her bag down and her shoes off, but she didn’t. She hardly ever did what he expected her to do.

As he looked into her eyes, he had to be cautious not to get lost in them the way he always used to, but it was hard for him, seeing her in person after what felt like an eternity for him.

“I’m sorry”, she said. “I shouldn’t have left like this.”

“Yeah”, Conor said and he hated how his voice cracked. She loved it, it made the butterflies in her stomach fly like a mad swarm of bees.

And as she looked in his eyes, she realized what she had done to him. She could see all of the hurt and the pain and she couldn’t take it. Before she knew it, more tears fell from her eyes. And before Conor knew it, he was brushing a tear from her face away with his thumb. She flinched at his touch, not much, but he noticed it nonetheless.

“Sorry”, Conor mumbled and was about to put his hand away, but she stopped him. Conor wondered why the warmth of her touch still felt so familiar, but he couldn’t care less as she cupped his face with her small hands.

“I’m sorry, I really am”, she said and he could see it in her eyes that she meant it.

He couldn’t wait anymore. He pulled her close to his body and hugged her, pouring all of the longing that he had for her in this hug and she felt it. She still cried silently, her tears staining his shirt, but he didn’t mind. He had her close to him again, and he couldn’t care less about anything else.

“Just don’t do it again, will you?”, he said. He buried his face in her neck, inhaling her delicate scent, waiting for her reaction.

She took a deep breath and said those three words that she should have gotten out months ago.

“I love you”, she whispered. But he still heard it.

“You do?”, he asked in disbelief and pulled slightly away so he could see her face.

“Yes.” This time, her voice was that much stronger. “I love you, Conor. And I’m so sorry for running away.”

“I love you too, so much.” Conor couldn’t believe that this was finally happening. Before the both of them could comprehend what was happening, their lips were brushing against each other’s, finally.

Dear people who menstruate, let me tell you about a thing...

There is a magical alternative to using tampons or pads called a MENSTRUAL CUP! If you have already heard of it great, you can stop reading now. But if you were like me and you have never heard of it before please carry on reading because this could change your life.

A menstrual cup is a safer, more hygienic, more practical, and (for me) just a much better way of dealing with periods. They look like this

and there are a whole bunch of different brands/sizes/colours. They are usually made of medical grade silicone and you insert them into your vagina during your period. The blood collects in the cup which you then empty into the toilet and rinse out your cup.

I will now list the benefits of this little miracle worker:

1) They are hygienic, there is no risk of TSS since they are made of medical grade silicone.

2) They also hold a lot more fluid than tampons do. This, as well as the fact that they are hygienic, means that you can leave them in for up to 12 hours!! (depending on how heavy your flow is)

3) They also don’t contain any of the harsh chemicals that pads and tampons have in them, so they are kinder to you body. Some people claim that wearing a menstrual cup actually makes their period a lot shorter because the body isn’t absorbing any chemicals and makes them have less painful cramps.

3) You only need one, for the rest of life! This means they are cheaper and you never run out, like you would with tampons or pads, because it is reusable. The only time you would need to replace it is if it started to break/tear (or if you bought a bio-degradable one which you need to replace every 10 years)

4) They are better for the environment as they are reusable, so you don’t throw away as much. And you can even get bio-degradable ones which will break down in the environment, unlike tampon or pads which come in plastic wrappers.

You may think these little guys look a bit intimidating, I know I sure did when I first heard about them. I thought, how the heck am I going to get that up my vagina? But do not worry my friends because once you get the hang of them it is very easy to insert and remove them.

This video is really helpful and shows a bunch of different folds. I personally use the origami fold as it seems to work best for me. Inserting it and removing it does take a few tries to get right and you can try the different folds, but it is really worth persevering!

I would also recommend this girl’s youtube channel, called PRECIOUS STARS PADS as she sells reusable pads as well as menstrual cups and is very knowledgeable about alternative sanitary products.

Sorry for taking up such a large space on your dash board, but I think it is important that people are aware of all the possible options for their bodies, and since I had never heard of it I thought I would try to spread the knowledge as much as I could, even if it is only seen by a few people.

Sorry if you've been asked this before, but what do the Cullen's / Hale's / Swan's handwriting look like? I love handwriting so much lol !!

I definitely haven’t been asked this before, no worries! Here goes:

You can see traces of the dense, loopy handwriting of the 17th century in Carlisle’s present-day handwriting, but he also tries really hard to be legible. He’s used to pens not being particularly smooth too, so he really jabs the nib/tip onto the paper.

Esme has round, creatively-spaced handwriting. She definitely learned calligraphy in school for a while, but she’s since given most of it up. (Also, she signs all her notes with little drawings, and it is adorable.)

Guess who stayed in his room for hours and hours, working to perfect his handwriting? Yes, that’s right. It’s Edward.

Rosalie has gorgeous handwriting, which she carefully maintains. The person writing all of E/B’s thank-you notes from their wedding was her, no question.

Emmett has never loved school, and since nice handwriting was more of an option than a requirement, he’s not very good at it. It’s legible, it annoys Edward, and that’s all he wants.

Alice has really pretty handwriting, purely through muscle memory. She wonders who taught her to write so nicely and whether she sent a lot of letters. She won’t change a thing about it either, so if she ever finds items from her past, she can compare them to her current writing with ease.

Jasper has Ye Olde Spidery Handwriting. He didn’t have much access to paper and time, particularly during the final years of his life, so he scrawls things quickly.

Bella: she’s just like us. In that her handwriting isn’t great.

Renesmee’s handwriting looks exactly like what you’d expect: her mother’s clumsiness overlaid with a thin veneer of Edward trying really hard to correct it. 

Orders From Casper - Phanfic

[A/N: I wrote this phanfic for a creative writing assignment in my english class, because why not? I also thought I’d post it here, because why not? Hope you guys like it! c:]

“Please, Mayor Casper. I promise he can change.”

“No, Phil. My decision is final. Dan Howell is too creative to live in a place like this. I order you to find him and bring him to me. We can either talk some sense into this boy, or he will have to leave.”

Hi, I was just wondering if nonbinary was a trans "category"? (Sorry if thag's really offensive) I've identified as NB for over a year and never thought of myself as trans.

Well, many nonbinary people (myself included) consider ourselves trans, but there are some nonbinary people (such as yourself !!) who don’t identify as trans. I visualize it in a similar way to that of nonbinary people in the overall LGBT+ community, where any given nonbinary person by default has space in and the option to identify as part of the community, but doesn’t necessarily have to. If that makes sense ? I guess this is just a long way of saying that while nonbinary can fit under trans and that it usually does and while nonbinary people are allowed to claim the label “trans” for ourselves, you are also allowed to not call yourself trans, if that’s what makes you more comfortable.

If any nonbinary followers want to pitch in your two cents, please do !!

@furiouslydecaffinated tagged me - and no, I had not already done this but was eagerly waiting for somebody to tag me LOL so thank you my little peach!

It was really between Bell, Pari, Naji and Fiona as they are the only ones old enough for this to make sense for… And obviously I chose Naji.

How fucking dare you, you absolute waste of space. 

Women who feel afraid or forced to stay with their abusive husbands and fathers of their children are not stupid or cruel. They are victims with very slim reasonable and fair options available to them – DONT even try top pretend that you’d know what to do in those womens positions – because you never will and never can UNTIL YOU ARE THERE.

How dare you insult me and the millions of other kids’ who’s mothers went through that shit like this, you truly are an irredeemable waste of time

Ichiruki may not be “canon” to Tite-woman-abuse-apologist-sack-of-shit-Kubo, but at least he never had the chance to write Ichigo abusing Rukia like Renji did, choking her, smacking her into shit, slashing her….and you Renruki/Ichihime fans have to live with that lmao

Personal-ish stuff.

tl;dr version: I have MASSIVE guilt issues.

short version: I’d like to do more posts about, er, me – books I’m reading (currently I’m rereading A New Dawn), TV I’m watching (just finished Prison Break), apps I’m using a lot of (addicted to Star Wars Force Arena), my, like, actual life – but I’m never sure if “my actual life” really has a place on Tumblr, which sometimes does feel like a more fannish Pinterest and often feels actively hostile to actual life stuff.  Especially if it’s not pictures of my cats, which I don’t want to post anyway.

Long version: I Have Some Issues, beneath the cut

You know, I was thinking about Tony Stark and therapy this morning, and under what conditions he would consent to go.

And it’s entirely possible he went to therapy after Ultron and before Civil War, I could see that, but I could also totally not see that.

So I could see the first time Tony seriously tries therapy being after Civil War, because he has so many feelings, the world fell apart and his mom was murdered and he was lied to and, not the least of them by any means, his best friend can’t walk and he probably blames himself.

But he can’t burden Rhodey with that. Not like he feels like he can’t, but he literally can’t, because it’s kind of a dick move to take up Rhodey’s space to process and grieve his own legs and life with Tony’s own thoughts.

This is what they mean when they say never rely on just one person to keep you going, Tony realizes. Pepper’s gone, and she’d listen but it’s awkward and it wouldn’t help either of them. Happy works for Pepper now. None of them team is an option, if they ever were. JARVIS is gone and neither Vision nor FRIDAY are adequate replacements, relationship-wise. Parker’s a kid, a good kid, but a kid nonetheless, and he idolizes Tony a bit, clearly he’s not good material for confiding things in.

So Tony gets a therapist, because he has to let these emotions out somehow, so he can be there for Rhodey without burdening Rhodey with his own problems until/unless Rhodey’s ready for that.

And consequently, when the team meets up again in Infinity Wars, Tony Stark is probably the most emotionally healthy he’s ever been in his whole life, he has coping strategies and belief in his self worth, they try to tell him that it’s his fault things went the way they did and he won’t have it because he does not have to take that.

Tony unintentionally becoming emotionally healthy while trying to be a good person and treat his friend right, not for himself, seems like the most Tony thing I could possibly think of.

I've seen some blogs that support trans people but dislike any other nonbinary identity, they say that nonbinary people "ruin the sanctity of the transgender spaces and experiences that people have actually lived through and experienced" . What's your opinion on nonbinary identities?

So, full disclosure off the bat: I don’t really interact a whole lot IRL with the transgender community. Like, I’m out to a handful of people, and I’ll be coming out to a handful more out of necessity but if living completely stealth was an option for me - which it currently isn’t but may be someday - that’s the route that I would personally take. I mention this only to say that I’m not really sure I am the person to be asking about the “sanctity of transgender spaces” whatever that means. 

I have nonbinary friends who I love very dearly, but as I’m not a nonbinary person and have never identified as such I’m pretty sure that I lack any of the necessary knowledge or subjective experiences to hold any opinion beyond, “You do you, friend. I’ve got your back.”

I have an opinion on precisely one gender among the billion variations that exist from person to person and that is my own. I don’t understand what it is to be a nonbinary person because I’m not one, so it would be pretty shitty of me to offer a comment on the validity - for lack of a better term - of the distinction. 

It seems to me kind of like if I were a cisgender dude and someone asked my opinion on whether trans guys were in some way affecting the “sanctity of cis men’s spaces.”  We’re both men so we share spaces but our experiences are going to differ pretty staunchly in certain areas. That doesn’t make either of us a less real person who’s had less real struggles, it just means that they don’t always look the same. 

TL;DR: I don’t know about trans spaces in general since I don’t really interact with many of them but any space that is mine is technically a trans space, so like, this blog for instance. I welcome nonbinary trans masculine folks to laugh about anywhere our experiences overlap and have some shared humor and to (hopefully) benefit from the places that our struggles share a face as well. 

If you disagree, that’s your prerogative. I’m not here to tell anybody what they should or shouldn’t think, I’m here to draw dumb pictures of myself when I get sad and share them with the internet in the hopes that maybe someday some other sad guy or masculine type person will benefit from finding a little bit of humor and solidarity in it. That’s it. I’m not interested in a debate so any arguments/discourse addressed to me will probably be ignored, just FYI.

I’m also kind of an anachronistic old man so I’m not hip to all the gender lingo, but if I’ve fucked anything royally up let me know and I’ll do my best to course correct going forward.
