pretty girl is nothing if she

okay, okay, hear me out:

what if the boy who lived was the girl who lived? scruffy tomboy harriet “call me Harry” potter, getting extra rubbish from the Dursleys both from being a girl and being the wrong kind of girl

and absolutely nothing in the entire 7-book series changes except for pronouns. because girls can be brave and imperfect and angry and sulky and loud just like boys can.

(except a girl harry would room with Hermione Granger and the Patil twins instead of Ron and Sean, but that’s literally the only thing I can think of that might change)

What if Sala...was the girl in Detroit?

The  girl that hugged Yuri, which he mentions in ep04?

Waiwaitwait put the pitchfork’s down I’m not going to suggest this will turn into some bullshit love triangle!

To recap, ep04:

“One time, a rink mate got into an accident. I was pretty torn up with worry. I was in the hospital waiting room with that girl. When she hugged me to comfort me, I shoved her away without thinking.”

Back to Episode 08…why am I even assuming they know each other?

When they meet, it goes..strangely, to me. Yuri is waiting for the elevator and when it opens there’s a scene hapening between skaters.

Rather than Yuri look worried, embarassed to witness it or exhasperated, he is mildly surprised and looking down, at Sala:

(note: there is no blush or anything. Nothing here indicates something like attraction)

Considering Yuri had just  thought “there’s no one I know here”, had he thought that then met someone he knew and hadnt been expecting, his reaction makes perfect sense.

Sala in turn focuses on him, then cheerily says “Hello Yuri” and doesn’t wait for him to reply (and interesting: Yuri is usually polite yet he doesnt) before turning to Seung Jil. Whats weird about this is that she then invites Seung Jil to join them, not Yuri. And he isnt close to her. If Sala already knew Yuri and their last interaction didnt end too well, it would make sense that she doesnt expect him to go with them.

(counter argument: She’s interested in Seung Gil so she wants him to go with them, but not Yuri)

In the end of the episode, she’s listening to Victor and Yuri’s “argument” while hiding. Why do so when they’re the ones talking in a public space, and they werent even making a big scene at that point as you can see others weren’t looking at them yet, so why such interest in them? If she knows Yuri it makes sense that she might be interested in checking out his relationship, as well as not wanting to make things more uncomfortable by being seen.

Now, if Sala was that girl, it would explain why Yuri is quiet and almost uncomfortable in that elevator scene: his last memory might be him shoving her away and he still feels bad.

Given Sala is a skater and follows her brother, it would make sense that she was near skaters to witness and help take one to the hospital.

Also, she and her brother seem to like physical contact, so it wouldn’t be out of her character to hug Yuri. And we see that she’s strongwilled in the episode (reacting strongly in the elevator) and to Yuri -in his old unsure, shy, self deprecating self- that might have come off as “pushy”.

And finally: if yoi isn’t above using a choking dog to forward development  and tie it with a similar situation (Yuri’s dead dog) there’s no reason why they wouldn’t be above bringing this up.

EDIT: I’ve seen people question this because they thought the composer girl was the girl that pushed him away. I never interpreted it as both being the same girl; Yuri even mentions things were awkward with the composer girls because he didn’t use the song she made. 

Also, the episode he mentions the composer to Victor is the same episode he mentions the girl that hugged him. Yet instead of going “that composer hugged me” he introduces the story with “there was a girl in Detroit” meaning he was speaking of another girl. And Yuri wasn’t that recluse, he could have interacted with more than one girl.

So if she is that girl…what would this mean? 

I don’t believe that, if she is that girl, that this is any way a threat to victuri or an attempt to add drama. It would be the opposite; Yuri, now in a happy relationship, finally having the courage to apologize and maybe even explain why he pushed her away then. And Sala would see how healthy the relationship is (which we’ve seen a hint of at the end of ep08) and how much Yuri grew and be happy for him.


And that’s the theory. I don’t think it’s that likely (they might not even really know each other) but I don’t think it’s impossible either

Killing Stalking Thoughts: Ch 19

Smug ass Sangwoo was so proud this chapter. He got what he wanted and he didn’t really do anything to get it.

I figured Bum would wind up killing Jieun, but I thought it would take a lot of coaxing from Sangwoo. I thought Sangwoo would play some mind games with Bum and convince him to do it, or at the very least Sangwoo would physically help Bum hold the knife and plunge it into Jieun, but nope none of that was necessary.

All it took was Jieun to say some more crappy things to Bum and she triggered him something terrible. Bum pretty much disassociated with the present. When Bum was killing Jieun, in that moment she wasn’t just Jieun, she was the girl from the past Bum had attached himself to.

Bum clearly has attachment issues. The girl from the past probably wanted nothing more than to be Bum’s friend. She thought she found a kinship with him since they both suffered from abuse, but Bum thought it was more than that. Bum has an obsessive personality and the minute someone gives him positive attention he attaches himself to them and probably thinks it’s love. This is the exact reason Bum started stalking Sangwoo in the first place. Sangwoo saved him in the military, so that meant Sangwoo must’ve cared for him.

What’s really interesting is Bum’s reaction to killing Jieun.

I don’t know what to expect in the next chapters. Bum might feel bad about killing Jieun later if he snaps out of the dissociative state he’s in now, but I could definitely see Bum willingly killing people with Sangwoo in the future without him being triggered to first. All Sangwoo’s got to do is convince Bum that the people they kill aren’t innocent. That every person they kill is just another incarnation of every person that’s ever wronged either of them in the past. At this point, it might not be that hard to convince Bum at all.

As for Sangwoo’s reaction to Bum after he killed Jieun, I’d definitely say he’s shocked. He probably expected Bum to be completely broken. He probably expected regret and tears of sorrow, but imagine his surprise when Bum isn’t feeling that at all. Bum’s crying, but those are probably tears of relief, that he got payback and killed one his “tormentors”. Sangwoo sees the smile on Bum’s face and the light in his eyes and he’s probably thinking “I don’t know what the fuck is happening…but I like it.”


Thanks to @jaynia for the translations!

I’m the girl who tries to be nice to everyone then gets taken advantage of. I’m the girl who tries to look pretty and it’s never good enough. I’m the girl who acts like she’s happy then goes home and wishes to be gone. I’m the girl who takes harsh words, acts like they’re nothing, then goes home and cries. I’m the girl who tries to get her point across and could never find the right words. I’m the girl who has more depth to her than everyone thinks. I’m the girl who hides from harsh eyes. I’m the girl who wouldn’t care if you gave me a shitty gift as long as you thought of me. I’m the girl who prays that someone will finally understand. I’m the girl who gets happy over the little things. I’m the girl that people misinterpret.

eleven is my favorite character on the show and here’s why:

everyone automatically thinks she’s cool because she’s telekinetic and yeah that is pretty amazing but not everyone stops to look at her character.

this little girl has been abused, physically and emotionally. she’s been treated like a lab rat and an experiment her entire life. she’s never been able to go outside, or even grow her hair. she’s been controlled for 12 years and punished when she shows even the tiniest bit of emotion. her life was hell.

yet when she meets the boys she’s nothing but kind. she tries her best to help them find will, even when she can’t communicate what the upside down is. she tries to save them from finding the gate, because she knows they’ll get hurt if they go there. even when her powers drain her and give her flashbacks, she still uses them to help the boys. eleven is constantly putting others before herself, even after she’s been treated terribly by everyone in her life.

she’s been abused, yet she never loses her kindness. she shows that no matter what you’ve been through you can still be selfless and compassionate. her abuse doesn’t define her or how she acts towards other people. that is why eleven is my favorite character.

Have Him [Pt. 1]

Hand on the small of the back.

Bodies close together.

Lips brushing the ear.

You watched Lin whisper into the ear of the new ensemble member, Karla.

Her giggle floated over to where you leaned on a wall. She shifted so she leaned into his side.

She was beautiful. Long, curly dark brown hair, evenly tanned skin, big light green eyes and a curvy body to match.

“That girl has nothing on you.”

Andrew leaned on the wall beside you, his eyes taking in the situation. You looked at him, smirking a bit.

“I have no idea what you mean.”

Andrew scoffed, turning so he was fully facing you, the loom on his facing telling you he sees through your bullshit.

“Everybody can see that you and Lin have feelings for each other, but both of you are too shy to do anything about it.”

He nodded his head towards Karla. “And I’m pretty sure she sees it too.”

You turned towards where Karla and Lin stood, crossing your arm across your chest, only for you to avert your eyes when you met Lin’s.

Andrew scoffed. The stage manager popped his head into the common room, telling that practice will begin in ten.

Karla bounced on the ball of her feet, a toothy smile appearing on her face. “I can’t wait to begin!”

Even her voice was fucking perfect.

You bit your tongue, noticing that his hand never moved from her lower back.

“You will be in the audience to see how fast paced it is since it’s your very first Broadway show, no?” Lin asked.

Karla fluttered her eyelashes. “Yup. And it’s such an honor.”

You kicked away from the wall, your heart struggling whether to pull apart and fall in pieces or hold together out of spite.

You didn’t hear the rest of the conversation. You couldn’t handle it.

You had to get dressed since you were taking the place of Phillipa tonight, anyway.

___*___*___

It was hard to look at Lin, mixed emotions coursing through you.

You stood beside Jasmine and Renee, getting ready to perform Helpless. Jasmine held onto your arm, resting her head on your shoulder. Renee rubbed your back, both knowing how you currently felt.

Like anything could get past Renee’s trained eye. Instinctively, she stepped in between you and Lin who just walked on stage, buttoning up his jacket.

“You can’t sit with us,” Jasmine said, sticking her tongue out at him. Renee added a sassy head roll.

“What?” Lin looked confused, Alex ushering him to the side before he could respond to it.

You almost smiled before-

“Oh, looking good Linny!”

From the front row seats came Karla’s shout. Lin smiled at her sheepishly while Renee glared daggers at her.

Jonathon rolled his eyes, carrying his crown as he moved to stand beside you. “No way am I going to let that tart ruin my OTP. Not today bitch.”

You screwed your eyes shut. You tried resolving with yourself, going over in your mind that you weren’t dating. You had no control over him. He can enjoy time with whoever he wants.

It’s not like you tried anyway…

Jasmine held your trembling hands, you shaking your head at Jonathon.

“Don’t even worry about it.” Don’t cry.

He looked at you with widened eyes. “But [F/Name]-”

You turned to him, eyes steely. “It’s all good, Groffsauce.”

If she wants him, she can have him.

___*___*___

Andrew cornered you in your conjured dressing room, eyes narrowed.

“What the fuck was that?”

Undoing the bow that was in your hair, you turned, addressing him.

“I did my job.” Your voice was cold.

“Oh, hell nah!”

Andrew slammed the door closed, rushing up to you and grabbing your shoulders. Staring deep into your eyes, he continued speaking.

“You do not just go from a cute, naive, zealous woman to some cold hearted, slightly less cute, shecat in under a second.”

You shrugged his shoulders off, stepping back to face the mirror. “Clearly, you never been a cashier.”

From the mirror, you see him running a hand through his hair, sighing between his clenched teeth. “You straight up ignored him.”

After rehearsing Helpless a few times, along with That Would Be Enough and Yorktown, Lin rushed over to Karla who leaned on the stage’s floor.

“He went straight to Karla. So really not my fault,” you shrugged.

“Then you go and interrupt them!”

“Andrew! I thought you were all for love and peace,” you tsked, turning to face him.

He pointed an accusatory finger at you. “My fucking OTP ain’t dying because of lack of communication.”

You smirked, rolling your eyes. “Sound just like Groff. And I’m pretty sure the communication was extremely clear.”

“[F/Name].”

You looked towards the open door, Lin poking his head in. Quickly following was Karla’s head above his.

You lifted your chin, indicating for him to continue. After a second of hesitation, he fully opened the door to let him and Karla in. He nodded towards Andrew.

“Good. Both of you are here. We didn’t have the time, but this here,” he pushed Karla from behind him into the middle of the room, “Is Karla Loving. A talented young woman who just graduated college. Just like you when you started out, [F/Name].”

You only blinked at him, seeing Andrew motion choking you in the air. With an awkward cough, he explained that since you both were newly college graduates, and you landing a position as a swinger for the sisters, for Karla to shadow you.

Haha. No.

You crossed your hands across your chest, shaking your head. “Sorry Lin. I can’t.”

Lin blinked rapidly, eyebrows knitting together in confusion.

“I’m sorry. What?”

You opened your mouth, only for Andrew to cover it. He wore a forced smile, the hand covering your mouth squeezing slightly in warning.

Karla batted her eyes, leaning forward so the beasts she (purposely) let hang out of her shirt were in view. She pouted. “It’s okay if you can’t right now. We can in the morning.”

I mean at all, bitch.

You tried to move Andrew’s hand to say this when Lin hit a fist in his palm. “I completely forgot. You have a knitting class to teach tonight. You’ve been planning this for a while.”

“Oh, yup. That knitting class she has,” Andrew laughed nervously. You glared up at him until he stepped back from you, his hands releasing your face.

Lin chucked. “Oh yeah. In the morning then. Before our first show of the day.”

Keeping your eyes towards the ground, you nodded as you rubbed your cheeks. Karla giggled, leaning her head on Lin’s shoulder. “Perfect then.”

She practically purred.

She looked up at him with large eyes. “Maybe you can show me the rooftop everyone’s been praising about?”

Lin opened his mouth, his eyes focused on you, ready to question your weird behavior. He opted to close it, smiling at Karla instead.

Andrew returned the nod Lin gave him, the smile he had replaced with a scowl.

“That whore.”

More Surprising Than Others

Pairings: Remus Lupin x Sirius Black, Marcus Flint x Oliver Wood, Dean Thomas x Seamus Finnigan, Scorpius Malfoy x Albus Potter

Summary: McGonagall had seen a lot of couples in her life but she had to admit some were surprising where others weren’t.

Words: 1,165


Minerva McGonagall liked to think she was slightly good at picking up on couples. Since Hogwarts was a place that put teenage boys and girls together, it was predictable couples would form. Eyes were usually kept on them to make sure they didn’t go beyond snogging, the enchanted staircase for the girls’ dormitory only did so much.

Some quick character busts of some cuties that @ask-the-french-olive designed for me because she’s a DOLL and these guys will be getting some plot on the Clary blog later pfff

Need to practice them so expect more of these nerdssssss

So I’ve seen a lot of people talk about the jock falling in love with the nerdy guy, and I love that prompt. But hear me out: imagine the hot girl, like the really hot girl that literally every one likes. Talking mean girls type of hot girl. And her entire life she thought she just hadn’t found the right guy yet, but she’s tooootally straight. Then one day a nerdy, frumpy girl walks into class carrying a stack of books. And the hot girl’s heart legit skip a fucking beat. Like she’s seen hot, she’s seen pretty but this grey mouse nerd is a whole nother level of beautiful! And imagine the hot girl who hasn’t cared for books or pursuing any of her interests because she’s always been told that she’s nothing more than a pretty face. Now she finally realizes the beauty in the brains, so she starts reading, nerding out, trying to pursue the same stuff the nerdy girls like. Just like imagine it. Imagine the two of them finally going on a date together, going to see a superhero movie. Imagine the hot girl watching the nerdy girl talk about it afterwards.

Sword Oratoria

So awhile back I picked up the first volume of the Danmachi spinoff LN in a buy two get one free sale thinking that it was a manga. I was initially disappointed because I didn’t really want a LN at the time, but since I bought it I figured I might as well go ahead and read it. 

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It’s certainly not the pinnacle of fantasy writing, but I was engaged in the story and wanted to know what was going to happen next. I appreciate that in the spinoff it focuses on Aiz and her familia doing badass things in the dungeon rather than Bell being a newb and getting stronger. Aiz is already basically a god among men, and it lets the story go somewhere different than the original. 

While the writing is for the most part fairly simple (though I suspect this is partly because of it being translated and also that LNs are typically aimed at a younger audience and tend to not use a lot of advanced Kanji, which probably translates to the somewhat punctual and simple sentences that LN translations seem to have) the author has a real knack for describing large scale tactical battles. Sure Aiz is pretty OP and well wreck things, but in the really lower levels of the dungeon if they don’t work together and have a strong battle plan they’re just gonna die. 

I also appreciate that in the LN the world is fleshed out a lot more. World building is one of my favorite things in a show or book, and the Danmachi anime didn’t go into too much depth about the various things. The LN goes into much much more depth about how all the systems work, the various familia, cool little things about the world and so on. Also the dungeon is just fucking cool. Each floor can be completely unique, with almost no restrictions placed on what it has to look like or be which leaves the author with incredible freedom to dream up the wildest floors they possibly want. 

I wasn’t really expecting to enjoy this book very much, but it’s a solid fun read. Something like a 6-7/10 if I’m going to give it numbers. If you liked Danmachi at all, or sort of liked it but wanted a different view of the world this is a nice book to pick up. Only the first volume has been officially translated, but they seem to be coming out with new official translations every couple months. I’m sure there are fan translations floating around too, but I haven’t looked for them. 

So ya, fun book. There is an anime adaption scheduled sometime this year too. I think next season, but maybe the one after. That should be fun.

When you think about which animal you least want to show up when you’re wounded and helpless, lions pretty much take the cake (and your face, and then some limbs, because they’re lions). They’re 300-pound, 6-foot-long cats that look at you as nothing more than a delicacy at a fancy lion restaurant they like to call Africa. But as we’ve noted before, lions also have a softer kitten center that leads them to care for some unlikely creatures.

In this instance, it’s a 12-year-old Kenyan girl who had been missing for a week. It turned out that she had been abducted by several men who were trying to force her to marry one of them (because who has time for romance?). But when the authorities finally found her, she was alone, her kidnappers having fled. Instead, she was surrounded by three lions that had scared away, and hopefully maimed, her captors.

The police said that the lions had been guarding her for about half a day when they got there, not only abstaining from munching on the little girl themselves, but also making sure that nothing else got close to her. When the police finally arrived, the lions departed, perhaps roaring “Everybody gets one” as they left.

Experts say that the lions might have been reacting to the girl’s tears as if they were the mews of a lion cub, but we all know the real reason: The little girl is a Beastmaster.

This is my girl Tsuchi! First pic is when I got her, she was pretty stressed out from the transport and had kicked off a bunch of hairs, but nothing a good home and a molt couldn’t fix. Second pic is from the day after her first molt with me.

Thanks for running such a great blog!

AS: oh wow gorgeous! they always looks so pretty after a molt!

I really don’t have the social energy for hours-long video chats multiple times a week. I don’t even particularly like video chatting… they demand your full focus and attention AND drain your battery like nothing else.

I’d tell this girl I’ve been talking to this, but she complained at length about her other friend who said he doesn’t like video chats, and I know she wouldn’t understand and would think it’s personal.

Genre: Angst, Fluff
Words: 2,145
Pairings: Bucky Barnes x Reader
Warnings: Rape mentions, violence, nightmares (pls don’t read if this will trigger anything & also i’m here to listen if anyone needs to talk)
Summary: Bucky doesn’t know what to do when traumatizing events result in your witty remarks dying down to nothing.


“She what?” Bucky snapped into the phone. He didn’t know what he expected Steve to say, but it wasn’t that.

“She broke his nose. It was a pretty good punch, I gotta say-”

“Shut up, Steve,” He cut him off, too distracted to listen to his rambling. “Why did she punch him? What did he do?”

While a small part of him felt pride swell at his girl defending herself and putting someone in their place, he couldn’t help the part of him that nearly shook at the thought of someone threatening or scaring her in that way.

“Nothing,” Steve sighed. “He touched her back or something while moving past us. It caught her off guard.”

Bucky ran his free hand over his face, moving his finger back up to rub the stress out of his temples. “Is she okay now? What’s she doing?”

“She’s fine.” Bucky could hear the small smile in his friend’s voice, no doubt from the unending concern Bucky showed toward you. “She’s sleeping now. She didn’t get much rest last night… Her nightmares have been getting worse. I don’t know how you do it, Buck. It hurt me to even listen to her.”

His heart clenched knowing that he wasn’t there to hold you when you wake up from your memory ridden nightmares. You were always there for him when he couldn’t sleep, and it only made him feel worse.

can one of these antis pls explain to me why lydia being in love makes her weak? bc her love for stiles has in no way affected her ability to kick ass, she’s still intelligent and strong and brave and there’s literally nothing different about her other than the fact that she’s in love. and saying that a girl can’t love a guy without her character being “ruined” is pretty sexist btw

From Michigan, USA:

“Now, a common thing with most brown kids is that the relationship with our dads isn’t really there. And the relationship that is there is usually a superficial one that relies on education and grades. It makes sense, considering our parents went through a lot to get to the position they are in today in the U.S., but that means they didn’t have a lot of time to focus developing emotionally. So honestly I was never really expecting my dad to ‘get it’ and I didn’t plan on telling him ever. I told my mom back in 2015 to stop her from getting some poor girl to marry me. And of course, she told my dad. But…he took it surprisingly well. He was worried about me because my behavior had been changing recently and he noticed. He let me know that he still loves me and that nothing has changed for him. It was a really shocking moment because as a queer person who lives in a pretty conservative, rather strict Muslim household, I never even remotely thought that an open reaction like this was even in the realm of possibility. But, alhamdulillah, people surprise you.”

So here’s an actual nice story about good customers.

This is at a subway. I’d had a pretty cruddy day so far due to a nasty customer deciding he wanted to have a shouting match with me when I stood up to him for berating our new girl for doing absolutely nothing wrong. Then my last coworker leaves just as the person who’s supposed to be coming in to fill her place calls to say she’ll be about an hour late, leaving me alone in the store for that hour. As soon as the call ended, 6 people walked in the store at once.

Now, subway is not fast food, it takes time and I have to do each person one at a time, from making the order to cashing them out, changing gloves and washing hands in between. The first person in line is a regular who asked if I was alone, and the rest of the line heard me tell her yes. Usually when this happens (because it’s definitely not the first time I’ve been entirely alone), I get collective groans, or impatient comments, faces, etc. Everyone in line instead just settled peacefully, chatting with me and each other. It was nice.
It stayed that way the whole time even as more people came in and filed in line. Everyone left a tip too.

It was made even better when my coworker ended up coming in earlier than expected and we were able to knock out the rest of the line easily and I could leave on time.

Thank goodness for all those great people out there
