pressure kids

negative reviews about power rangers hurt my feelings personally and then i look and see it was written by a white dude and i know he’s just mad that it wasn’t a story all about white people, so with that in mind, here’s a list of why white nerdboys hate this movie and why you should go see it!! mild spoilers!!

  • only one white ranger (jason, red), and while he’s the leader, his screentime was not significantly greater than his teammates, nor was his background the most fleshed out. he also suffers real consequences for his poor choices instead of being let off with a slap on the wrist. 
  • half indian ranger (kimberly, pink) who makes a very bad choice that is very cruel, who is not coddled. she is told that her choice was bad, point blank, but that she can still be a good person. reformed mean girl!!! and she’s not a white blonde!!!
  • mexican ranger (trini, yellow) who is LGBT (we don’t know if she’s bi or a lesbian but i’m guessing she’s a lesbian).
  • chinese ranger (zack, black) who is bilingual, showing the struggles and pressures of a kid who is responsible for caring for a single parent who is sick and struggles financially.
  • black ranger (billy, blue) who is autistic, and actually says the words “i’m on the spectrum” in the film instead of dancing around it. is the heart and soul of the team, his friends treat him completely normally.
  • NO ROMANCE!!!! there are slight hints but seeing as the events of the film span roughly two weeks, the film is all about friendship and sacrifice and acceptance, not about teen love.
  • i’m dead serious go see this goddamn movie i cried like ten times and was absolutely amazed by how they took this cheesy little show from the 90s and gave it so much heart and love.

“We talked about it [about marriage]. I think, both me and Marzia, kinda feel like when we want to, we will, but we’re still young…we’re still beautiful. What’s the rush? You keep seeing these young couples getting married way too soon, you know, and it all goes to the shitter. You want that to happen? Is that what you want? Don’t think so….so until then…shut the fuck up” [x]

Gil’s Story Is My Nightmare

You know, it normally takes weeks if not months for my feelings to settle on a subject relating to fiction. Like, my first time through, it’ll wash over me, I’ll consider it a while, and then, eventually, I’ll come to a conclusion.

But Gil’s story rubbed me wrong on first run, and I easily figured out why.

Gil’s story is my nightmare as a gay man.

I know I’m not the first to sum it up, but I am SO frustrated and pissed off by this (and Mass Effect Andromeda’s handling of M/M relationships in general), I need to work it out of my system.

Ok but what if Ransom doesn’t really want to be a doctor.  His family and culture put a lot of pressure on their kids to be doctors and get prestigious jobs, and he wanted his parents to be proud of him so he went into pre-med.

What if he was having a post-game panic attack over molecular biology when a scout from the Maple Leafs asked him if he had a minute to talk.  And the thought of just not going to med school, of just ending his education in two months and not having to study for a test ever again, made him feel so relieved he found Holster afterwards and cried for five minutes.

“I don’t ever want to stop playing hockey,” he says to Holster, who… honestly, was kind of looking forward to not having morning practice for the first time since he was four.

What if Justin Oluransi made his parents the loudest, proudest cheering section in Toronto, screaming with love for their son the NHL player.

Can I just say that I love Shiro? Like Takashi Shirogane is the only adult in a group of kids who were sent to space to save the universe. Not only that, but he’s faced extreme trauma for a year up to this space travel. So first of all, it’s gotta be hard. I mean, he went through a major hard thing, but he can’t, he won’t put that pressure on the kids.

Shiro immediately takes the leadership role, despite being the most out-of-practice when it comes to space flight. But he’s the natural leader of the group. He’s the oldest, the most mature, the one they lean on.

But that’s also an immense pressure. Like Shiro tries as much as he can to protect the other kids. Is he perfect at it? Hell no. He’s young too. Not prepared to be one of the sole caretakers of a group of kids. It’s pretty undeniable that he has shown a bit of favoritism towards Keith and Pidge, but I think it’s subconscious and just because he has prior relationships with them and he’s gravitating towards the familiar. I think once he realizes it or someone points it out to him, he would be pretty horrified by the realization, but he’s just a young guy.

You just gotta love him. As much as we joke about it, he truly is a Space Dad. How many 20-somethings do you know that could hang out with kids all day and not absolutely lose it? There’s no other word for it besides paternal. And I really love this flip on the trope. Shiro is an amazing fighter, can even be vicious. He’s gone through severe trauma, he’s maintaining his grief, he’s rough around the edges, and yet he’s so soft when dealing with the kids.

What really gets me is in the once scene in Episode 5 where Lance is unconscious and Shiro is carrying him through the castle. He knows Lance is injured and it’s easy to tell how much he cares by his nervous chatter. But what really really gets me is that Shiro is tired, he’s panting and sweating, he knows the castle has been breached but he’s so careful with Lance. And when he sees Sendak in the castle, he makes his way over to the side. And he lays Lance down, but he’s so so gentle with his head. Like, he sets Lance’s head down separately. And he’s in no hurry, either. He knows he’s about to fight for both their lives, but at that moment, taking care of Lance is a priority for him, and I think that’s really telling of his character. 

Shiro is not perfect, and he is so so young to be a caretaker, but that’s exactly what he is. And I’m so grateful that we have a physically strong and imposing male character who takes that role.

KakaSaku Parent Headcanons

  • So first off let’s say about half the village is surprised to find out Kakashi and Sakura are having a baby, the other half isn’t.
  • Kakashi is super attentive to pregnant Sakura, mostly because she’s one of the unlucky ones with a miserable pregnancy and it’s his fault, also because Naruto and Sasuke would kill him if he didn’t attend to her every single need.
  • When Sakura finally gives birth, Kakashi lowkey freaks out but acts super chill about it so Sakura doesn’t flip her shit.
  • WHEN THEY MEET THEIR BABY OMFG
  • Kakashi insists that Sakura is the first one to hold the baby and he can wait.
  • CUTE FIRST FAMILY PICTURE WHICH IS TOTALLY TAKEN BY NARUTO OF THEM WITH THEIR NEWBORN.
  • Unfortunately when Kakashi becomes Hokage he can’t spend as much time with Sakura and their kid(s).
  • Totally see them having multiple kids. Maybe two or three, probably because Sakura wants her firstborn to have siblings.
  • They’d probably have two boys and a girl. Boy would that girl be ADORED by Kakashi. She has him wrapped around her finger.
  • Tying back to my Kakashi dad headcanons, Kakashi does not put any pressure on his kids to be incredible shinobi, but as the children of the Sixth Hokage and Sakura Haruno, student of the Fifth Hokage, they’re little prodigies. They all probably skipped a year and graduated a year early at the Academy.
  • Even with his duties, Kakashi still makes a point to attend every single event in his kids’ lives.
  • Sakura is a mother hen. Those are her babies. Do not mess with them.
  • Also do not expect to get away with anything. Sakura has eyes on the back of her head. She needed those eyes with Naruto around all the time in her teen years.
  • Sakura expects them all to take a family picture once a year in the first few months of the year. She started the tradition when the kids were young because she was just fascinated by how fast they were growing and wanted to have pictures showing how much their family changed over the years.
  • The age gap isn’t a problem at all in the Hatake-Haruno family. The kids don’t even bat an eyelash at the thought that Kakashi was Sakura’s sensei.
  • If Kakashi’s daughter has a male sensei, you can bet Kakashi will be keeping an eye on that guy. He’d also be lowkey pissed that he retired from the Hokage position just a few years too early to pick a female sensei for his daughter’s team.

This ended up being a lot longer than I intended but it’s KakaSaku so *shrug*

Dating Wonder Woman would include...

The only headcanons I wrote was about Wolverine (here), and since I never received any other requests about head canons…I’m very glad to write another one with Wonder Woman yo ! Though I’m not sure I’m doing it right, I made it way longer than most headcanons I saw around I think, and also cut it in more than one part…I hope it’s ok. So here we go, hope you’ll like it

__________________________________________________

How you met, how you two fell in love, the first “I love you” : 

✶ You first met Diana when your brother, Bruce aka the goddamn Batman, dragged you to the Justice League’s Watchtower (against your will). You were already a Gotham’s vigilante just like him, the next big step was obviously the League, though you didn’t like the idea of being in a little “super club”…

✶ You quickly changed your mind when you met Diana though. She’s the first one who talked to you, and though your brother told you many things about the Mighty Wonder Woman, you weren’t impressed. 

✶ That’s what made her fall in love with you. Because you accept her just as she is. And you couldn’t care less about the fact that she’s a Princess, or one of the most powerful being on Earth.

✶ The way you’re never afraid to tell people what you think, even if sometimes it’s almost rude, is also another reason she fell for you. She loves the fact that you’re independent, and don’t take anyone’s shit, including hers. You keep her grounded when she gets a bit too cocky or something. 

✶ Another thing that made her fall for you : even though you went through a lot of bad things during your life, you always saw the bright side of everything, and Diana understood why Bruce always referred to you as his “personal sunshine”. You didn’t have any super-power, but hey, the ability to make anyone (even the Batman) smile and laugh was even better. 

✶ Your brother shipping you two even before you started to both flirt with each other like crazy. 

✶ Your brother calling you “an idiot” when you decide to not reciprocate the flirting after a while, afraid to bring her in your chaotic life. “She’s Wonder Woman, as if anything could actually hurt her”. 

✶ Diana being somewhat depressed while your avoiding her…And the League having an “intervention” to convince your stubborn ass to talk to her again. 

✶ You not resisting for very long, because…Well, she’s Diana Prince, and if you’re honest with yourself, you’ve been in love with her ever since you first met. Her not being even remotely mad at you for your sudden coldness toward her, on the contrary, being over the moon because you finally came back.

✶ Your brother giving you relationship advices : basically, do the opposite of what he would do. Best advice ever. 

✶ Becoming very close from each other because it seems you two are just hand made for each other. Conversation is always flowing just right, you don’t always agree with each other but always listen etc etc…A match made in heaven. 

✶ Diana knew she was doomed and totally in love with you the day you punched your brother AND Superman in the face because they dared to say you needed protection. “If I can punch you two idiots without you stopping me, then clearly, I’m fine without protection !”. Yup, she was definitely doomed.

✶Her knowing you hate when people protect you, but not being able to not do it…and you letting her protect you, because you love her, and if it can make her happy, then so be it. 

✶ Surprisingly, she’s the one that said “I love you” first…Right before what should have been a “suicide mission”. Needless to say it gave you a reason to fight like Hell to have the chance to tell her you love her too. 

✶ You never even had time to tell her, as when the battle was finished, and you two were still alive, she crashed her lips on yours. The rest of the League applauded when you were finally able to whisper, breathless : “I love you too D”

CHRIS WOOD IS WORKING WITH THE ARROW CAST PERSONAL TRAINER

@msclockwatcher mentioned that Chris Wood was following the same personal trainer in Vancouver than many of the actors playing superheroes in Arrow work with, Thomas Taylor.

So I checked Thomas’ instagram, that is @t3athletics.

And yes, not only Chris Wood follows Thomas, but t3athletics’ latest post specifically names Chris Wood as one of the Flarrowverse actors who needs to keep on training to get fit for the next season.

Quote: “t3athletics: While the Cast is away, the Directors get to play! Arrow/Flash Supergirl Director extraordinaire @glenwinter putting in work in the off season. He’s kicking ass and taking names. This is a call out w/ 6-1 ladder down Rows/Rollout Push Ups to @stephenamell @emilybett @echokells@rickgonzalez @julianaharkavy @christophrwood @james2bambamford. Better be fit as he is come Season 6 kids. No pressure 😉
Yes he does give me the 🖕at the end of this. I feel it’s loving”.

I see this as a confirmation that he is indeed Chris’ personal trainer. In Vancouver. Where of course he will keep on living because this is where they film Supergirl. And he is a series regular in Supergirl. And they start to film season 3 at the beginning of July.

This trainer is an expert in making actors get and keep a superhero body. Chris showed in Supergirl 2x13 that he has an amazing physique but with this guy is going to bulk up even more. Yay.

And the Arrow cast usually post videos with their workouts. I hope we also get this with Chris. Actors work very hard to get their amazing bodies so they should show off.

Why does Chris need bulking up? Oh, I’m expecting a red superhero suit with a blue cape, Kara’s glyph and lots of spandex.

So tell me again why there is still people who don’t think that Mon-El is back for season 3 and Valor is rising?

Because I’m going to laugh so hard at them when they are proved wrong!

Always (Prologue) (M)

Trailer | Prologue | One | Two | Three | Four

Everyone is happy…

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Genre: Killer!Jungkook, Angst, Smut (in later chapters)

Word Count: 1,800

Content/Warnings: Since this is the prologue it’s pretty tame, but prepare for future: Violence, Gore, Smut, Offensive Language. The next chapter has very graphic gore, so if you’re not into that, back out now. Although Jungkook does kill in this series, this is not a serial killer AU.

A/N: For those of you who have read my other works before, you’ll find that this one is quite a departure from my usual “cute” and more light hearted fics. It’s my first time writing a series so it may be quite short compared to series by other writers. Anyway, I hope you enjoy ~

Summary:

You would die for him, kill for him, and everything in between. 

He was as much a part of you as yourself. 

You didn’t want anyone else. 

It was always Jungkook.

FO4 companions as parents (headcanons)

Codsworth:
Loves his children to bits but unfortunately also lets them walk all over him, they know how to push his buttons and they often get a lot done from him. It’s not that he doesn’t attempt to be strict, he does, but as soon as his kid looks even the slightest bit upset starts to apologize excessively and does anything to make them feel better and tell them it wasn’t their fault. Leaving Sole to inform them when it actually WAS their fault (someone has to keep em from becoming a spoiled brat). When they wanna get something, they tend to ask Codsworth first. Welcoming to any and all of their friends who really like coming over because he’s the dad who essentially makes THE best food all the time. When the kids come to him with nightmares or things that happened he always tries to put things in perspective and makes the child feel understood.

Danse:
Danse is a super protective dad and ridiculously patient as well. He doesn’t like to rush their kid in the slightest. Particularly sensitive to anyone putting too much pressure on his kid, and a very gentle approach to teaching his child anything. He strives to be his child’s confidante and seemingly succeeds at that rather well. If Sole gave birth to the kid also in awe over what she’s managed to do, sees her as some sort of goddess for it.


Deacon:

Dress-up with the kids is a weekly event. When Sole brings up they’re worried on their kid getting an identity crisis early on like that, he just says they ought to experiment with who they wanna be. Dad jokes all around, ready to pretend not to have seen them sneaking out of the window to meet up with a boyfriend or a girlfriend BUT needs to know where they’re going. He does, after all, know it’s a harsh world out there. When concerned about his kids he sometimes follows them around in disguise, although only when he believes there’s something they’re not telling him. Sole often feels like they’re partners in crime and not telling them stuff, even having inside jokes.

Hancock:
His kid is raised to be a rebel, but one with their own sense of right and wrong. Much like their dad, they aren’t afraid to speak up, not even to Hancock who welcomes anything they have to say and tries not to actively stop them from doing anything unless it’s overly dangerous. Doesn’t judge them for the way they dress nor their (lack of) sexual promiscuity. DOES however keep them away from drugs as well as possible, interestingly enough. Always ready to listen and always has his kid’s back, even when that means threatening people who looked at them the wrong way in a dark alleyway. Nobody dares to bully his kids, but none of their friends are scared to come over either. Hancock really trusts his child’s judgement in other people.

MacCready:

MacCready is somewhat more used to parenting thanks to Duncan and is capable of telling his kids off when necessary. If they did something wrong, he sits down in front of them at their height to explain them when they did something wrong and why it was wrong. Regularly picks their kids’ side against Sole, when he thinks Sole’s being a bit too harsh. Nevertheless he provides his children with comics to put under their pillow at night, so they have some important literature near them at all times. Finally remembers why the word ‘mungo’ was banned from his own vocabulary when his child starts to use it. Would readlily fight, kill and die for his kids. 

Maxson:
Very strict parent, doesn’t let their kid win them over with puppy eyes regardless of the age. Nevertheless, he makes sure their kid knows he’s always there for them and doesn’t judge them when they fuck up nearly as easily as Sole expects. He actually listens to his child’s arguments and explains where there are flaws in their reasoning. He does, however, remain very insistent on them learning all about the Brotherhood ways of life. Very protective of his children.

Nick Valentine:
Exceptionally good at keeping a balance between being strict and letting his kids go their own way. Tries his best to keep his kid out of trouble, and raise them with very strong moral values which surpass any kind of laws. Very understanding and never tells their child that how they feel is ridiculous. Sometimes the right thing isn’t just trusting superiors no matter who those superiors are. Makes sure his kid feels appreciated and loved at all times and teaches them that differences aren’t ever a bad thing. His kid also happens to be fluent in sarcasm and tries to make sure they keep their childlike curiosity intact. 

Preston:
The dad who’s calm, responsible but knows everything. His kid has no idea of how he does it but whenever anything happens he just knows, not to mention he can read their face like a book, and instinctively knows when something’s up. Also highly supportive of their kid, and tries to spend as much time with them as possible. Strong believer in that the thing a kid needs most from their parents is their time and love. Adores his kid(s). 

X6:
Not the one who readily starts speaking jibberish to his child, speaks to them as if they were an adult, even as a kid. Annoyed by how defenseless the little one is, but deep down concerned about his kid’s wellbeing. He’s the silent type but does let their kid know when they’ve impressed him and tells them he’s proud of them every once in a while, although usually with a straight face. He’s more careful out there BECAUSE he’s a father and doesn’t want his child to lose him. 

Cait:
NOT a natural at motherhood, probably didn’t really sign up for it. Nevertheless, she attempts to give the child a better life than she’d been given by her own parents. She’s pro the ‘let them make their own mistakes’ approach, knowing that she’s sure as hell made her share of them. Teaches the kid self-defence as soon as she can. If anyone utters even one bad word about her kid she gets on edge VERY fast.Teaches her kid that if someone hits them, they ought to hit harder. 

Curie:
Never seizes to be in awe over her child, her face just lights up as soon as she sees her little one. Carefully keeps track of their growth and reads anything she can find on child development. Makes sure the child eats the right things and tries very hard to get the child’s cognitive functions developed as early on as possible. Tries to raise the child bilingual: French and English.

Piper:
She adores her little one and is the kind of mom who’s also her child’s best friend. She’s pretty chill and always ready to give her kid advice but also strict enough to tell her kid off when they fucked up. Only con: she wants to find out anything and everything that’s going on, sometimes behind her child’s back. Super supportive, always ready to get in the line of fire to protect her kid. A true lioness when it comes to her baby.  

BONUS GIF: Sole and all of her companions at the settlement love this kid and therefore they have the most amazing extended family.
