say the wrong thing

It’s definitely really really cool getting messages on this blog whether their doodle suggestions or just general messages like
This place is more intended to be a public-easy-to-browse archive but having that actual interaction just makes it feel like more of a positive extension of POM so it actually feels like a blog instead of a storage haul ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

Sealed with a kiss from these quivering lips that long to touch and taste yours, are all the words I wrote for you and didn’t dare send, for fear they were too…me. But in this world, where we vex those we love most with our virtuous intentions and vested interest, and sometimes say the right things at the wrong time, I’m taking the chance to reveal them now…slowly, slowly, letting the anticipation build. I only hope they aren’t a letdown. If you decide you don’t want them, please be gentle in your turndown. I will be vulnerable, wide-open, butterflies doing a frenzied dance in my belly. And I wouldn’t consider taking them back, as they are yours to keep or discard as you wish. As I wouldn’t wish back this kiss. From my lips to yours…

School Asks Teachers To Take Down Pro-Diversity Posters, Saying They're 'Anti-Trump'
Now, the students are fighting back.

There are so many things that are wrong with this so I’m going to break it down piece by piece.

1. If pro-diversity is anti-Trump, what does that say about our president? Why would any Trump supporter want to make this equation true?

2. The school stated that these posters are political. Nowhere on any of them does it say anything about Trump, Republicans, Democrats, current political endeavors, elections, etc. The posters say that Latina, Black, and Muslim women deserve to feel safe, free, and empowered.

3. Since these posters are “political”, the school states that they need to be “part of a curriculum” and “represent both sides.” The antagonist to these posters would be saying that Latina, Black, and Muslim women don’t matter!

4.  “equality, respect, and religious freedom are unassailable American values and non-partisan.” - Shepard Fairey, artist behind these and the 2008 “Hope” posters

5. ‘Westminster High School’s mission includes preaching “tolerance [and] acceptance of diversity,” said Steven Johnson, the county’s assistant superintendent for instruction.’ Tolerance and Acceptance of diversity. Not support, promotion, or empowerment.

6. The assistant superintendent compared this issue to the issue surrounding the Confederate Flag. Now, William T. Thompson is not the artist behind the Confederate Flag. He simply published the design in a paper that he was the editor for stating “ As a people, we are fighting to maintain the Heaven-ordained supremacy of the white man over the inferior or colored race

There’s more I could say but the article will cover it for the most part.

Please. Everyone. Love each other.

What did I do?? *sobs* Did I say the wrong thing? Did I do the wrong fluff? Whatever it is, I'll make it right. Whatever it is, I'll fix it as long as it means you'll unbreak my heart. *continues sobbing* Does apologizing help because I'M SORRY! *whispers* now take it back. Please. I'm HELPLESS here.

You sent a GIF that worked with the horror that popped up in my head? I APOLOGIZED IN ADVANCE TO YOU. You’re the only one who gets a real sorry for this.

listen, thank you for being one of the few voices who are actually willing to call out the cis white faves of fandoms. i am tired of these protection squads for the white dudes when they say the worst things. alec is wrong if he uses violence against raphael and it's not funny at all to justify it. white violence on characters of color is not a fucking joke, i am sick of it. i obviously like matt/alec but what they said was wrong and needs to be called out.

I understand Alec being protective of Isabelle. I understand him being angry and frustrated when he finds out his sister is suffering, and then finds out that Magnus knows about it. (Even though he technically didn’t….) I get it. But no, his actions aren’t justified. His actions wouldn’t even be justified if Raphael was white. But it’s even worse that he’s a moc. I can’t speak above pocs, as a white person myself, but a white character attacking a person of colour (especially when they’re innocent) is completely unjustified and wrong. And Matt saying that Raphael has it coming to him is even more gross. 

People in this fandom need to stop protecting the cast when they say/do something wrong. Everyone is capable of making mistakes and it’s when someone acknowledges them, only then are people able to understand and grow. 

Matt probably didn’t mean any ill intent by his tweet, but it still came across as wrong and he needs to know that.

Acquaintances - Part 3

Originally posted by theking-or-thekid

Summary - You were a perfectly normal girl who didn’t reach outside of the normal world you were used. A stranger whose hands become familiar will help you reach a new reality.

Relationship - JungkookxReader

Introduction   Part 1   Part 2   Part 3

The journey consisted of you looking ahead onto the unfamiliar road as you knew that if you were to look at him it would start a conversation, something you didn’t like doing as you didn’t feel like doing as you didn’t even know what words would be shared between the two of you. Small talk had become almost impossible due to the situation that he had put the two of you in.

The silence was almost suffocating but it scared you even more to say a word. What if you said the wrong thing? You didn’t want to get in any more trouble than what you were already in right now.

He turns the wheel changing the road to a lane blocked by a gate but he didn’t have any form of recognition for them to open or even to get out of the car for them to open, instead they opened automatically as if they were inspecting his arrival. He drove through the now open gates and slows before his car comes to a final stop.

Your eyes gazes across the building. It wasn’t the mansion that initially came to mind, instead it was a big house but nothing too posh but it looked like a lot of money went into keeping it hidden. The gate, tall trees surrounding the entire area and tall fences stood alongside the greenery. The house looked old and left to age but the lit windows show that it wasn’t left empty, leaving you to think that Jungkook didn’t live alone. The thought left you curious but the hint of fear never diminished. You were still sat next to a stranger.

The door opened beside you and looked to see that the man had opened it for you like a gentleman should, someone of which doesn’t exist.

You stepped out into a silence that neither of you knew how to fill. The sound of the car door closing was then followed by the man taking steps toward the entrance to the house, his head turned to meet your once lost gaze and gestured you over, without much choice you followed him until the door stood as a barrier. He looked to the ground, thinking. As if he was unprepared to face what could be on the other side of this door. He then proceeded to push the door and you followed him into the alien building which is inevitably going to be your home for the night.

You follow the man through the opened door and enter the empty room with only some stairs  tucked into the corner of the room. Your eyes observed your surroundings until they closed in on a chair in a room next to you. What grabbed your attention was the pair of shoulders that you could see belonged to a man that you also didn’t know. This night was by the looks of it going to be full of introductions to strangers you never thought of meeting. 

You looked up to Jungkook and by his look he knew this man but his wide-eyed expression showed that he was almost scared of who was sat on the chair. Your eyes returned to that chair to which you then saw the man stand.

The man turned to face you both, his eyes first on yours but then drifted over to Jungkook’s. He din;t move, frozen in place as the man approached the two of you. Looking up to Jungkook you see his head bowed, hiding his emotions. 

The man came to a stop, still looking at Jungkook when he finally spoke.

“What happened?” Such a simple sentence.

Still with his head bowed, Jungkook answered. “It was a mistake, I didn’t know what else to do, I-”

“You made a pretty big mistake. You brought your assigned back with you.”

You looked to Jungkook. “Assigned?”

So many questions came to mind but only the one word managed yo escape.

What was this man talking about?

“I’ll explain.” The man said almost glaring at Jungkook but then shifted his gaze to you. “This boy was or should I say is on an assignment  and you are the assigned. Assigned you ask? Well it’s meant to have been something that you’d never know of, never notice or have any knowledge on. Basically mistakes were made in the past which created a bad society amongst men and our job is to stop them from completing their evil doings.”

You breathed out as he finished his vague and yet still helpful explanation, however you were left still unsure of exactly what ws going on.

“I promise to make my wrong doings right.” Jungkook said as a form of apology, you guessed.

You could still sense his nerves radiating. The man looked to have ignored what was said as he continued to keep his gaze on yours, you felt too afraid to look away.

“What are you going to do next?” He said finally looking away and locked eyes with Jungkook. 

Jungkook looked the ground eyes darting in all directions, thinking of the right words to say. “I’ll make this right. Clean up the mess.”

The man simply nodded before walking away from this conversation, from the two of you back into the room in which he emerged from and closed the door behind him. 

eye-vibes  asked:

How's the new job treatin' you?

“Hey, Undernet.  Long time, no chat.  

“The new job’s okay.  I didn’t even really go after it.  They just found me lazin’ around so much, folks started joking about the place being haunted.  So they asked if I wanted to help out, I can get a paycheck.  Nothin’ fancy or anything.  Just a lotta cataloging and remembering things.  Helping people find an’ pick stuff out.

“I’ve, eh…  Been trying to sort some things out.  With how quiet things’ve been, and with not being around folks who know me, I’ve had time to figure out where it all went wrong, y’know?

“Lemme just say one thing.  Even if bullying doesn’t affect you when it happens, you’ll see the damage later.

“Yeah, that DMA shit was what probably started my, as Rus called it during an interestin’ talk, ‘volatile and worrisome choices.’  

“At first it was just, ‘Wow.  What a bitch.  Let’s see if words fix this.’  Then nope.  Words don’t do a damn thing.  The things she said started affecting people’s lives, and I got pissed off at how much damage she was doin’, so I did what I knew.  I made it personal for her too.

“After that, all the weird and bad choices I made didn’t seem all that bad.  I just wanted all that shit t’stop, and it did.  Buuut, life ain’t ever that simple.  When grey faces started hounding me about certain stuff, it kinda felt like I need to one-up the situation again.  

“As it might’ve shown just a teeny tiny bit…  I did….  More like a five-up really…

“And in the end, all I had t’do was cut myself off from people so I could figure out where it all went to hell!  Because sometimes, just because you care an’ love someone, doesn’t mean you’re good for ‘em.  That doesn’t mean you have to ditch them for good, but you gotta realize what you’re doing or didn’t ain’t cool, and do your best so you can be good for them again if you can.

“Some things just aren’t reversible. Plain simple and painful.  Between being at the library for so long, and meetin’ Poppy, it’s started a process.  T’be honest, she’s part of why I don’t plan on using the mannequin for a good, long time.  The only reason I started using it was because SHE was doing what she did best, and I didn’t want to upset Rus.

“Oh.  And while I’m blathering about what’s been going on, I went to the Copper Kettle.  Once.  Then I realized where I first heard of it and stopped going.

“So whattabout you guys?  You doing okay?”

That was probably the wrong answer…

the poets were wrong.

you don’t burn and there are no tornadoes in your chest,
your hands don’t hold galaxies or stars
and your anger isn’t a volcanic god
ready to smite every enemy.
the moon doesn’t love you and neither do the stars,
but the earth does, in its own way, i guess.

see, you are human, my dear,
born to destroy and to take and to make,
born to learn and to watch. you observe the stars;
they do not observe you.

you run from tornadoes or you chase them,
you do not become them. your anger is just anger
an emotion to control or be controlled by;
volcanoes can stay dormant for years
but you are never still.

and why would the moon love you?
why would the stars?
they are too far away to be swayed by a pretty face,
but the earth lives under your feet, it feels you dance
to the beat it drums out in thunder and rain.

you are human, fragile
and while your skin is weak your heart beats strong.
it might not hold hurricanes but it does hold love,
and this can be just as deadly.
your anger won’t ever level cities
but it can topple friendships
and they amount to the same thing.

the poets were wrong.
you are not out of this world,
you are of it and beloved to it,
and you are still special.

  “I don’t think you’re an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother’s pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever’s in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences… But the thing is, um, what I’m trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you,                                                                very much. Just as you are.”
  “You once said that you liked me just as I am and I just wanted to say likewise. I mean, you wear stupid things your mum buys you. Tonight’s another classic. You’re haughty, and you always say the wrong thing in every situation and I seriously believe that you should rethink the length of your sideburns. But, you’re a             nice man and I like you. If you wanted to pop by some time that might be nice. More than nice.”

If Jungkook was a hyung, I wonder how Bangtan would’ve fare. Thank lamb skewers things are the way they are now.

okay but imagine if wade made it into an mcu movie and removed the lower part of his mask so clint could understand like he does in the comics and tries fingerspelling something at some point and clint is like “sorry man i never learned sign language” and wade just is so confused and pulls out a hawkeye comic and rifles through it and just looks up like “those motherfuckers”

ugh i’m trying to compose an eloquent text post about this but i’ve erased it like four times now but like. there’s nothing wrong with being a moderate - in politics and in cultural stuff like fandom and everything else. a person doesn’t need to be Dead To You for saying one wrong thing. and on the flipside (and this is more my point), a generally shitty person (like jason kenney, or fucking like john mccain or someone) shouldn’t be Your God & Bae now for saying one right thing. don’t be reactionary, and don’t be polemic. don’t be inflammatory when you’re arguing with someone; they’re not an enemy to be destroyed. the end.

get to know me meme [23/25] favorite female characters: Caroline Forbes

Why didn’t he go for me? How come the guys that I want never want me? I’m inappropriate, always say the wrong thing and Elena always says the right thing. She doesn’t even try, and he just picks her. And she’s always the one that everyone picks. For everything. And I try so hard and I’m never the one.
