see i told you it was good

I’ve had several people ask me if I’m for real in my offer to send them cards for the Holiday Event Season, even if we haven’t spoken before, even if we don’t follow each other, even if I don’t get a card back, even if they live far away.  Some folks seem positively flabbergasted by the idea.  All I can think is… 


I love the mail, I think mail is like the most romantic thing ever, so sending it and getting it is a big deal to me.  I’ve done this for years and I enjoy it.  No, your address will not be put on blast for all the world to see.  Yes, you will get a wee bit o- cheer in your post box from some weirdo who lives far away. Maybe it won’t be as good as a hug, because mine are like legendary, but it’ll be nice.  Do not fear me.

We were in London :) And on my way home I went with this girl who was going the same way as me and she told me about some celebrities she's seen and my drunk self said: "I'd wanna see Harry Styles" (my sober self probably wouldn't wanna see him because I'm not the person to talk to famous people and I'd just regret not doing nothing afterwards so it's better not to see him period, you know) and she went: "what's the deal with him anyway? Everyone loves him" and I said: (1)

(2) “He seems like such a good person.” And her face just went blank, waiting for me to continue, (I think she was expecting a “he soooo haaawt” and then she said: “Actually a friend of mine lives next to him and she’s got flowers from him with a note that says ‘Sorry for all the noise. Hope to see you soon’ because of renovations on his house.” And I was like: SEE THAT IS WHAT I MEAN!! But I didn’t. I just let Harry’s actions speak for him as per usual. Aahh the small things 😌

Aww I think I’ve heard a rumor about this before too?? Back when he was renovating he sent some flowers to his neighbors yeah. So I’ll take this as a confirmation since this is the second time I’ve heard it ;) He’s so fucking sweet. Hope you had a good time out! x

Bennett sat quietly staring out over the ocean from his seaside balcony, lost somewhere in his head. A small tapping at the door from inside of his bedroom pulled him back into reality. Expecting it to be his twin, as it usually was, he was surprised to see his boyfriend looking out at him.

Slowly the older boy opened the door then sank down beside him, immediately putting his arm around the redhead & pulling him close. I hope you don’t mind me coming up, he murmured, kissing Bennett softly. Your dad let me in & told me it was alright. 

Drawing in the scent of his cologne, Benny’s head swam. God, Ezra always smelled so amazing. Though only a minute ago his mind was miles away with someone else, it felt so good to have the warmth of the blond beside him. So often he seemed to forget how easy it really was to be with him. 

They’d spent most of their lives as friends & teammates. After dating for nearly two years, lately it had felt like they’d drifted apart somehow. Ezra was always with his friends, other seniors at their school mostly, allowing Bennett the time to get closer to Arashi. He knew what he was doing was wrong & a pang of guilt hit him now. As much as he offered to end things with him, he couldn’t shake the feeling that letting him go would be one of the most painful things he’d ever had to do. 

It’s fine, Bennett smiled, leaning his head on the older boy’s shoulder. I wasn’t expecting you but… pleasant surprise.

Ezra heart fluttered in his chest. He knew something had felt different recently but in this moment, everything felt so normal again as he held his boyfriend close. I was supposed to go out on the boat today with Beau & some of the guys but…


But I haven’t seen you in a few days so I decided to see if you were around instead. I missed you, Benny.  



w: mama’s posted a video on simstagram and it’s snowing at willow crew! can you believe it?

w: i never told ‘em that i’m lesbian… i’m afraid that they won’t react… — she made a pause — you know, in a good way 

confession - harry & cara

Harry had never felt worse as he made his way up the elevator and towards the hotel room he was sharing with Cara. His heart was hammering against his chest as he stopped outside the door and forced himself to take three deep breaths. He knew that whatever was waiting for him on the other side of that door wasn’t going to be good, and he had never been good at confrontation. He pushed through the door quietly, shrugging out of his coat and hanging it over one of the dining chairs before looking up at meeting Cara’s eyes across the room. “Hey.” Harry breathed, his voice barely above a whisper as he swallowed hard and ran a hand through his hair. “I didn’t mean for you to find out like this.” Harry told her truthfully, not seeing any point in dragging it out longer than he needed to.


To you:

Hey. It’s been a while. To be completely honest, I thought that I would never see you again. Can’t say that I’m happy to see you. In fact, let me just go past all the pleasantries and tell you straight up how I really feel. Remember the last talk we had? I’m sure you do, cause I told you explicitly that you kept bringing me down. That you had a negative impact and had become toxic to my life. And if you truly cared for me, that you’d leave me alone. But here you are now, a constant reminder of my past that I can’t get rid of. I don’t even know why you felt that it would be a good idea to come back. Are you deliberately trying to hurt me? Am I that much of an easy target to you? Why are you here?

The day I let you in, I thought you’d be good for me. I thought that I could handle a different side of me that I never fully explored. But before I knew it, your influence took over. Whenever I faced an obstacle or a challenge, you kept on dragging me down along with you. To the point where you ended up controlling me. And yes, it’s partly my fault for letting you do so. But that’s why I began to stand up for myself. And told you to leave. I hadn’t reached rock bottom, but I was damn sure I wouldn’t let you take me there.

So now what? You’re back. Did you miss me or something? Were you that miserable and lonely to decide that you should return back in my life? You know what, forget it. It’s okay. It’s fine. I’m fine! Because you’ll just be a reminder of my past. A past that I don’t ever want to go back to. I’ve grown and matured so much since you’ve left. And I’ve gained so much of my confidence back. In fact, I changed my mind. You might as well stay as long as you want. Because I’ll just be acknowledging your presence, but disregarding your influence. Cause in the end, I won’t let you get the best of me. I’ve already learned my lesson. Trust.

Prompt: “These chemicals moving between us are the reason to start again.” -Jet Black Heart

Nothing I did felt right. I was worthless. Until she came along one day. She was amazing and was exactly what I needed to see how precious life was.
My best friend, turned girlfriend. Of course, there were days where even she couldn’t make me feel good about myself.
I was sitting in my room one day, a bottle of pills in my hand. That’s when she came bursting through the door. I slowly brought my eyes to her as she yelled. “Michael Gordon Clifford, what the actual fuck are you doing?” Her eyes dropped to the pills in my hand. “So, it’s true. Luke told me that you hadn’t been answering your phone and I got scared.” She sat next to me, then sighed. “Michael, what can I do?”
I sighed, “I don’t know. I just give up on life.”
Then, she kissed me. Her lips were warm, but sticky with lipgloss. I didn’t mind. Her fingers were in my red hair, twisting and pulling me closer. Something about that kiss was powerful. It sparked something inside me. When we broke apart, she asked, “Aren’t I enough? Why do you want to leave me?”
“I don’t want to leave you. I want a reason to live.” I told her, still cupping her face. “These chemicals moving between us are the reason to start again.”
“Really? You’re not going to leave?”
“Not any time soon.”
“I love you, Michael.”
“I love you, too.”


Er…so this probably isn’t what you expected from a Big Hero 6 x Frozen crossover…sorry!! not sorry :P

And for those of you who just wanted to see Hiro in a dress, here! <3

(also, please tag this with Big Hero 6 spoilers since it really does kinda spoil ^ ^;  Thankees!)

I actually met this guy on the Tube the other day who’s doing special effects on the movie and he told me that, yeah, apparently Harry is a good actor. I’ll tell you what, if Christopher Nolan takes you on you must be a good actor. I’m looking forward to seeing it, it’s going to be an unbelievable movie but when one of your mates is in it then it’s going to be even better. I think he is going to do well.
Steven Universe Playlist

I’ll post this once, I think, cause it’s a long long post! Haha but a lot of people were messaging me asking for it! 

So I made a Spotify playlist inspired by the main characters of Steven Universe and some of the relationships between the characters! I truly hope you all enjoy it! The direct link to the playlist is here:

Here are my full explanations on which character each song is based off of, and why!!

Steven – “Into the Stars (feat. MC Jin)” by Tim Be Told – I can see Steven singing this light-hearted, optimistic tune, with Connie accompanying him with her violin. And the rap within the song is totally Garnet joining it. I felt not only this to be a good song for Steven, but also just an awesome “Steven Universe”-ish song to start off the playlist!

Pearl – “Alice” by Bianca Ryan – This song has such a beautiful balance of delicate melody, with an uneasy background, almost like there is an unease that’s building. Pearl parallels the character of Alice in this song so well, and I think it beautifully highlights her struggles with Rose’s sacrifice (How do you stand so calm when everything you lived for is gone?). I also think it shines a light on Pearl’s mysterious past, as we know the least about her (Alice, what is your secret?). At the end, the line Alice knows where she’s going, I like to look at it as “she” is Rose, and Pearl knows where she’s going… she is going to live on in Steven.

Amethyst – “Done With Bein’ Done” by Daphne Willis – I think this song brilliantly encapsulates Amethyst’s fight that resides within her, despite her being so uncomfortable with herself. She doesn’t let her own insecurities defeat her. It has a deep message, but delivered with such a light-hearted tune, which I think parallels her need to paint over her insecurities with her aloof attitude. Not to mention, the rapping portion of the song sounds EXACTLY as if Amethyst were saying it herself.

Rose Quartz to Steven – “Moon and Back” by Alice Kristiansen - I can see this song as Rose’s message (or even lullabye) to Steven, if only she could talk to him (You’re trying to make me proud, believe me now). She believes in him through and through, and wants to reassure him that there’s always hope (Through the cracks in the road, the flowers grow…).

Garnet – “Valentine” by Pentatonix – This song does such a wonderful job of showcasing Garnet’s faith and firm belief in who she is, and what makes her her (I don’t wanna hide me… Cause I know about my love). I also think the multiple voices of Pentatonix helps to illustrate the fact that Garnet is comprised of two strong souls, in addition to herself as her own unique soul.

Ruby – “Love Runs Out” by OneRepublic – I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun. I think this song really encapsulates Ruby’s willingness to be the warrior you need to get things done, especially for Sapphire. It’s almost a fight anthem for Ruby, a mantra she would repeat, proving she would overcome anything, never stopping. Not until her love for Sapphire would run out, which would never happen.

Lapis – “Breaking Down” by Lenachka – The beginning of this song starts out almost like rain falling on the ground. I love this song for Lapis, not only because the feel of the song seems to match her personality, but also because it speaks about her wish to find home, and how she must now find it on Earth (I thought I found my way back home… but I’ll find it anyhow…). The song also shows her strength, despite the struggles she’s endured (Just because I’m running doesn’t mean I’m hiding, and just because I’m hurting doesn’t mean I’m breaking down…). I also love the violin at the end of the song, which I can see her dancing to.

Peridot – “The Logical Song” by Supertramp – I don’t think there’s another song that defines Peridot better than this song. The song describes how the world taught the singer to think logically and clinically. I also like the idea that, like the singer, Peridot once looked at the world as a beautiful mystery before society taught her to think only one kind of way. I especially like how the song also reflects Peridot’s fear of disobeying the socially acceptable standards (Watch what you say, they’ll be calling you a radical…). And it also shines light on Peridot’s eventually questioning of the part she truly plays now that she’s a social outcast (Please tell me who I am). Finally, add in the tech sounds near the end of the song, and this whole tune is just perfectly Peridot.

Connie – “The Call” by Regina Spektor – Just like Connie, this song starts out quietly, shyly, and grows louder and more confident. I believe the words mirror Connie’s faith in Steven, especially when he’s going off to fight. This song almost is a premonition of Connie’s imminent journey to train in order to join Steven, so that she never has to stay behind again. The beginning of the song especially relates to Steven stirring the bravery within Connie that she didn’t know she had, but had all along.

Malachite – “Control” by Halsey – This song already showcases the creepy and disturbing feel that Malachite deserves. On top of that, it discusses the unstable nature of the singer, very much like the constant fight between Jasper and Lapis, who comprise Malachite (Who is in control?). It even offers similar sentiments to the ones Lapis uttered to Steven (You should be scared of me).

Greg – “Artichoke” by Gabriel Mann – This song was also recommended by another blogger, due to it strangely having the feeling of Greg, and I couldn’t agree more! I can almost hear Greg making this impromptu serenade to Rose one morning cause it came to him. The whole song contains these sloppy similes to food, which Greg would totally make, and Rose would totally giggle at! Despite the messy meter and rather interesting connections he makes, the song still contains this beautiful heartfelt message that is perfect for them. Plus, the singer sounds very much like Greg, right??

Jasper – “Warriors” by Imagine Dragons – Suggested by another blogger, and once again, another amazing fight song that I think Jasper would declare about herself and all her fellow warrior gems (We are the warriors that built this town). They truly believe they are fighting to colonize other worlds for the good of Homeworld. The beginning of the song could almost be Jasper’s origin story (As a child, you would wait, and watch from far away, and you always knew that you’d be the one to work while they all play…)

Opal – “That’s Just What You Are” by Aimee Mann – This song, sung by Opal’s voice actor, is actually a really fun song I can see almost being sung between Pearl and Amethyst about their differences, and how despite those differences, they come together to make up Opal. That’s what Opal is comprised of, these beautiful juxtaposed characters. Despite Opal’s stoic personality, I still feel she has the potential to be chill like the feeling of this song.

Sapphire – “Once Upon a Dream” by Lana Del Rey – This song has the haunting solemnity that Sapphire most times exhibits. I can imagine Sapphire singing this about Ruby, almost as if she foresaw Ruby to be her soulmate. I know the whole thing about Ruby was that Sapphire didn’t see Ruby coming, haha, but I would think Sapphire could playfully be saying this to Ruby to reassure her that she’s the one for her.

Stevonnie – “Nine In The Afternoon” by Panic! At The Disco – This is another tune recommended by someone, and I think this really captures the feel of the beautiful, innocent sense of discovery that Steven and Connie felt as Stevonnie (Man, it feels good to feel this way!). Everything was new and slightly scary, but they had each other to experience it with. I especially love the line Losing the feeling of feeling unique, as it connects with Stevonnie’s confusion as to what individual was feeling what.

Blue Diamond – “The River” by Ibeyi – I searched a long time for the right song for Blue Diamond! Not knowing much about this character also contributed to that haha. Finally, I came across this (no pun intended) gem! This song, which is infused with the Nigerian language, Yoruba, harkens to the North African style Blue Diamond seems to be drawn from, and has a regal and mysterious feel, which also compliments her personality. The lyrics also almost sound very religious, which draws a parallel to the Homeworld gems’ view of the Diamonds as some forms of deities, or at least how Peridot seemed to view them!

Sardonyx – “Dance Apocalyptic” by Janelle Monáe – This super fun and bouncy song about keeping on dancing despite almost doomsday-ish circumstances, I feel, perfectly encompasses Sardonyx’s confident and happy nature. She always seems to be able to take on any challenge with the greatest aplomb, and that’s what’s so great about her. Not to mention, there is also the occasional Smash, smash uttered through the song, which makes me think of the line “Occasionally, I am known… to smash.” Janelle’s voice and exclamations are so perfectly akin to Sardonyx, it just has the beautiful feel of that character.

Ruby & Sapphire – “All the Matters” by Estelle – Not only is this one of the most endearing and romantic songs I’ve ever heard, which happens to be SUNG BY ESTELLE (voice actor for Garnet), it also is a song that brilliantly describes Ruby and Sapphire’s everlasting love for each other. I just see them reminiscing about all their life together, and how they wouldn’t trade it for the world, especially Sapphire, who had originally seen all of her life laid out in front of her, but now has a completely new path thanks to Ruby (And now we sit and wonder where life went. Of all the moments I missed, I’m glad I didn’t miss you).

Yellow Diamond – “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Lorde – This foreboding, ominous take on the classic song makes it even more appropriate for Yellow Diamond, who I’m almost certain has completely taken Homeworld for herself. The opening even has the oppressive, scary feel that could be almost akin to Yellow Diamond’s tight-gripped reign of Homeworld. There’s even the line, Turn your back on Mother Nature, very similar to Yellow Diamond’s wishes to simply let the Earth die, which isn’t even logical to Peridot, as Earth contains so many important resources that could prove useful.

Steven & Connie – “Oasis” by A Great Big World – I chose this song to represent what Steven and Connie mean to each other. Not necessarily a romantic message, more just about two souls who are meant to support and defend each other. Despite all the hectic and bad things that seem to happen around them, they assure each other they will get through it together (When we can’t fight another fight, we’re gonna make it).

Sugilite – “Win Again” by Nicki Minaj – There were many songs suggested to me for Sugilite that were by Nicki Minaj. This song was the one that not only completely featured Nicki, but also brilliantly encompassed Sugilite’s personality. Not only does it mention that she’s a monster/beast, it also describes her confidence that she will always defeat anything in her path, racking up the wins (Kill, kill everything in, everything in my way).

Alexandrite – “Together” by Ella Eyre – This is a fantastic song with a message of how, like the Crystal Gems all fusing to create Alexandrite, the fight can be won as one (We are more together). Not only, is it an awesome song for Alexandrite, I just think it’s a fantastic fight song for all of the Crystal Gems!

The Cluster – “I’ll Keep Coming” by Low Roar – I wasn’t originally looking to include the Cluster on this playlist, but then this song was suggested, and it was too perfect not to add in! Not only does the song start out with the ominous sounds, which could easily be the low rumblings of something stirring beneath one’s feet, but the multiple voices singing in unison echo the fragmented gems contained within the cluster. The lyrics also perfectly describe the Cluster (Soon I’ll come around, lost and never found, waiting for my words, seen but never heard, buried underground, but I’ll keep coming). The whole song captures the scary and mysterious creation so well.

Rainbow Quartz – “Runaway (U & I)” by Galantis – This upbeat song has the fun, dance club feel that matches Rainbow Quartz’s personality! Not to mention the song is about two individuals who don’t know what lies ahead, but they want to run away together despite it. This is very much like Rose and Pearl becoming rebels to Homeworld, fighting for Earth together, as well as Pearl’s undying devotion to Rose.

Rose Quartz to Greg -  “I Was an Island” by Allison Weiss – What an absolutely perfect song to describe how Rose’s world was turned upside down by Greg (I was a rebel, and I had a cause, til you came to town, pushed me around, and showed me what love was). It has that rock feel that was just like the music that attracted Rose to Greg in the first place. It almost has the same recurring strums that are contained in the song “What Can I Do For You?”. I can almost hear Greg playing the music as Rose serenades him with the words.


Eddie Bolden who was wrongly sentenced to 22 years, visits his son’s graduation ceremony from Goshen College.

While hundreds of students got to walk across the stage during the ceremony, the moment was especially exciting for a father and son duo who thought it would never happen.

I was anxious to see him walk across the stage,” Eddie said Sunday. “I can’t stop crying.”

Despite the fact that Eddie had been imprisoned for all of Dominique’s 21 years of life, both of his sons, including his older son, Antonio Johnson, would often visit him in prison. The two maintained a good relationship with their dad as he asked them both not to give up on him.

You all are the reason I didn’t give up,” a teary-eyed Eddie told his boys on Sunday. “There were days that I didn’t want to live. The only thing that stopped me from giving up is that I knew it would hurt you all. I thank you for being my reason to live.”

Black people really inspire me when I see such situations.

Mr. Bolden is an extremely strong man, he finally claimed justice for himself and now he faces his son graduating from the college.

This is a very sentimental story, and I endorse Mr. Bolden’s persistence. I just hope that cops who made him suffer for 22 years will finally be punished.

It was an exciting day at the aquarium, as for a few days there were advertising a new exhibit and Cordelia’s boss had told her to come in early for a briefing, since she was doing tours.

“Good morning, Cordelia, we appreciate you coming in early. I bet you’re so excited to see what’s going in the new exhibit!” Her boss said when she showed up. As far as she knew, he was a good man who treated his employees well.

Tyler and Josh were celebrating Josh’s birthday yesterday night and I guess they had a camp fire going. There were some fans who decided it would be a good idea to stalk them and try to climb over fences to try and meet them after the show. Security told them MULTIPLE times to leave or else the cops would be called if they didn’t stop, the cops were called. Now these people are saying “Tyler and josh would rather see us get arrested then to meet us” Seriously, are you fucking kidding me?

Tyler and Josh are ACTUAL people with REAL feelings and you need to fucking respect that. This is completely unacceptable, I understand the need to meet them but seriously?

Honestly, stop playing the victim you were fucking stalking them and trying to break through fences and jump over them. Please respect Tyler and Josh!

I’m not trying to start drama but God, this pisses me off.
