So I’ve been re-skimming some LotR in between looking for new books to read and Boromir mentions his brother like, three times in the Council of Elrond. And I realize it’s dramatic foreshadowing shit, but consider (modern au apparently) Boromir who just talks about his brother all the time and has so many pictures:
“Hobbits like poetry? My brother won a poetry contest in third grade!!! You know who’d love to hear more about Dwarves? My brother. Gosh, I can’t wait until we all get to Minas Tirith so I can show you all the best things about my city and you can meet my brother.”
“Yeah, I’ve seen Boromir, he’s a great dude,” says Eomer, “but I hear he talks about his brother a lot?”
“How do I know you’ve actually met my brother?” asks Faramir. “And how do you know who I am?”
“… I have seen probably a hundred pictures of you and heard the stories behind all of them,” says Frodo.
“Ah,” says Faramir, resigned. “Yeah, okay, you’ve met him.”
Don’t tell me I talk about my illness too much. Every movement. Every breath. Is a reminder that I’m not ok. That I may never succeed.That I can’t do things that normal people do. That everyday is a struggle. Never ever tell me I talk about it too much.
Okay, so for the family au, cause I'm curious, does Shiro have a prothetic? If so, how does he work with it and how did he get it? If not, does he ever? And how?
[The Voltron Family] The first time they found out about it, Keith thought he was having a bad dream. When he found out it wasn’t, he wanted to die. Shiro revealed he had a cancerous tumor in his right arm.
Keith: Why aren’t you reacting like— *pounds at Shiro’s chest angrily* Shiro: *silently lets Keith do what he wants* Keith: *sobbing while glaring at him* Why do you even have a tumor? We’ve been living a healthy a life. *abruptly stops upon realization* Is it my fault? Shiro: Keith, don’t be ridiculous. Keith: *grips into Shiro’s collar* It’s my fault, isn’t it? Is it because we don’t…. Is that why you’re… Shiro: *raises his voice* Keith! None of this is your fault, alright?! Keith: *raises his voice* Then why the hell are you not worried— Shiro: BECAUSE I’VE COME TO ACCEPT IT!! Keith: *surprised at the outburst* *steps back* Shiro: *rubs his temple* *sighs* It’s malignant. Keith: *covers his mouth* Malignant tumor. Takashi, that’s the deadliest. Shiro: I know. Keith: *grabs Shiro’s hand* Then what the hell are we doing here shouting at each other when you could have been at the hospital?! Shiro: *doesn’t budge* Keith, don’t. Keith: *looks back* Don’t? Are you saying you’re not going to do anything about it? *shouts* IT’S SPREADING IN YOUR ARM AS WE SPEAK!!! ARE YOU EVEN PROCESSING HOW SERIOUS THIS IS? YOU’RE THE DAMN DOCTOR BETWEEN THE TWO OF US AND YET I AM THE ONE WHO’S PANICKING!! WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU— Shiro: I MIGHT LOSE MY JOB!!! Keith: *glares* Is that what this is all about? Shiro: They’re not going to let an amputee operate, Keith. Keith: *grabs Shiro’s collar and pushes him to the wall* How dare you say that. How dare you fucking say that in front of me?! I’D RATHER YOU LOSE AN ARM THAN LOSE YOU ENTIRELY, TAKASHI! So what if you lose your job? You think I cannot provide for this family?! We both know Hunk, Lance and Pidge are secured for life. We made sure of that. Do you think so lowly of my job? In case you forgot, I earn 7 digits yearly just as much as you do. So don’t you fucking dare imply that I cannot provide for this family. Think about the kids… about me. You promised we’d grow old together— Shiro: *wraps Keith into a hug* I’m scared. Keith: *deflates* *hugs back* Well, that’s a start. Shiro: I’m going to lose my arm. Keith: Doesn’t make me love you less. *kisses Shiro’s cheek*
When Shiro got amputated, he was asked if he wanted a prosthetic arm. It was going to cost them a lot but Keith answered “Yes” quickly that Shiro didn’t even get to process anything.
Shiro didn’t lose his job, at least not yet. He was on leave trying to recover and trying to get a hang of his new arm. He’d come to accept that it was part of him now. Keith had always been there to help him put it on and take it off, most of the time pampered with kisses which made Shiro laugh.
Keith: *kisses Shiro* You know… Shiro: Hmmm? Keith: This has always been one of those weird fantasies of mine. Shiro: *cocks his head* What do you mean? Keith: You’re like half cyborg— Shiro: *groans fondly* Oh no. Keith: *laughs* I was a teen who was into robots, okay?! I’ve read books of a human falling in love with a cyborg. Shiro: You’ve read too many weird books in your early days. *rolls eyes*
After a few months, the hospital called him that if he still wanted to continue being a brain surgeon, he could.
Shiro: But I have a— *looks pointedly at his prosthetic arm* Director: We don’t discriminate, Dr. Shirogane. *smiles* You’re one of the top neurosurgeons in the country and we’re grateful to have you working with us. It works like a normal arm, yes? *eyes Shiro’s arm* Shiro: *nods* Yeah, it does. I don’t even feel like it’s artificial anymore. Director: I can see that and I’m glad. I don’t see how you shouldn’t continue your practice then.
When Shiro came home and told Keith the news, his husband might’ve cried.
Honestly? Jin and Jimin are /adults/. They’re not catty teenage girls going behind each others backs and insulting each other, this was a part of a /game/, where the point is to roast someone basically.
Obviously, no one is trying to say that the statement that Jin made was okay or not uncalled for in any way (it personally made me cringe, and yeah, I’d rather it not have been said). But to criticize those kinds of statements means you should criticize them when they’re being used against anyone, including the /countless/ times they were used against other members i.e. Jin.
Going back to the adult thing, Jin and Jimin work and live together, and have for almost 5+ years. All of the boys are very close, and if there is an issue, I am sure at this point they are mature enough to address it with one another and talk it out.
These are just some of the beautiful photo’s taken of us by @roamingroveon seriously dude, you worked some serious magic here, all of these pictures are absolutely beautiful.
These were taken on Saturday at Anime Boston when I cosplayed Emperor Hux and @jetstarramblings was my Kylo Amidala, we are so lucky to have many more beautiful photo’s coming soon, but here is a small taste <3
A/N: This idea was sprouted by one of those ads we’re the two people are texting about something really agnsty or suspenseful and you have to download the app to see the whole story. I loved the idea so much and thought no one would be more suited for it than Void. I want to thank @writing-obrien for seriously helping me out with this when I was completely stumped. Also @celestial-writing because this fic would not be finished if it weren’t for her motivating me to push through up until the very end. And @sarcasticallystilinski too for all her feedback. I think they all edited this at some point too so thank you beautiful babes, I love you all more than most. Lastly, Koneko is Japanese for kitten so says google translater. I’m sorry if I got that wrong.
"lyk n rebl0g if u want 2 destroy all starbucks windowz 2 piss off fascists and billionaires." All that gon do is piss off latte sipping liberals. Fa's don't drink that shit and billionaires have insurance. But thanks for showing the world you're an idiot.
Emma’s response in the sneak peek when Regina tells her to stop holding everything in was interesting in itself, but it was similar to other times when she felt put on the spot by Regina about her feelings.
First she avoids Regina’s gaze, frustrated that Regina won’t let it go, she looks caught. Things get really interesting however when Snow blurts out that “Regina is right.”…
…and Emma cannot believe what she hears. Doesn’t that face scream. Indignation and concealed anger? It’s as if she’s saying “How dare you tell me not to hold everything in, considering you are the person I’m doing it for?” Her reaction is all “Are you serious? Are you seriously telling me this?”
…and Snow is oblivious, but Regina has noticed the intensity of the response…
Besides everything that I have going on the side, I want to raise some awareness about a specific person. I am not usually one for drama but when it concerns friends and mutuals I have VERY STRONG FEELINGS on art theft and reposting! Especially when I can help it!!
I instantly recognized this as Simika’s wonderful artwork and I was irritated to see it on here. Just because you put a tiny source link does not mean it is okay to repost without permission! Unless permission is explicitly given you should. not. do. it.
So I messaged this person, you can see the conversation I had with them. They seemed…… ok? Very formal, but all that did was sugar-coat their really selfish intentions. I ended up speaking with Simika about this, as you can see from the screenshot below, as they are one of my mutuals…. I got clear instructions to ask them to take it down. So I sent the screenshot. This very “formal and polite” person who “takes art theft very seriously” blocked me shortly afterwards. They did not take the post down.
… What to do? I’m furious. I cannot report artwork that isn’t my own and Simika does not know English. If maybe you can send them an ask asking them to take down the artwork… I do not suggest attacking, that is never acceptable, but there is a lesson here as well….. Just because you source does not make it okay to repost….. Especially when the artist says so.
(sigh it is such a problem, I am frustrated and unsure what to do at this point.
