set apart heart

8

Do you long to be left all alone?
Set apart with a heart made of stone?
There’s a light that you shine
There’s a love, I see it in your eyes
Every day, every night

I know time may divide
But fate is something we refuse to hide
And it’s real, and it’s right
Something strange, out of sight
We say goodnight

-you’re Tina and Queenies younger sibling

-when you first meet Newt, after Tina brings him back to the apartment, he sets you’re heart aflutter immediately

-But you see the way he looks at Tina and it makes your chest ache for a man you barely know

-Sometimes your body tries to trick your brain telling it that Newt cares for you, FEELS for you

-Like when its dark, after everyones gone to bed, and your stuck in the middle of a recurring nightmare about the death of your parents.

-Newt hears you, sits beside you in bed and listens while you talk about it, about THEM

-He always brings you a special tea that he makes down in his case.

-he tells you theres a secret ingredient in it that helps you sleep. Your too shy to tell him you know that all that is in the tea is a small drop of honey

-Your body tricks your brain, until you see Newt and Tina together again, laughing quietly to each other.

-your brain can no longer be tricked and all of a sudden tears flood your eyes and it feels like your hearts been replaced with a hollow wooden box

-you carry that wooden box inside you, until you get hurt by the obscuris

-theres jinxes and lights flashing everywhere and your on the ground, silent tears rushing down your cheeks

- Y/N! Y/N! Newt rushes to your side and kneels beside your shivering body.

-“Don’t you dare leave me Y/N, don’t you dare!” he starts healing your wounds with quick waves of his wand

-“Newt… if something happens to me, I nee-” “Nothing’s going to happen, you’re going to be fine” he interrupts you, his voice panicked.

-“Let me finish,” you croak, and he turns to listen to you, “ I know that its Tina, that its always going to be Tina” you smile and theres a little blood on your teeth but to Newt it is the most beautiful site hes ever seen. “But for me its you, your my Tina” you finish.

-Newt takes your head in his hands and whispers softly, “Your my Tina too.” he laughs.

“Dear younger me
It’s not your fault
You were never meant to carry this beyond the cross
Dear younger me

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed

Every mountain every valley
Through each heartache you will see
Every moment brings you closer
To who you were meant to be
Dear younger me, dear younger me”

WHY is it that every superhero is on that extended banner except for donna !!!!!!!! They even have B.IZARRO on it. And they pulled every lantern and their child out of D.C.’s ass !!!! BUT NOT DIANA’S SISTER IM SO MAD

Polyamory/Polyships

So you want to make a poly verse!

I have seen a huge upsurge of polyships on tumblr lately and it makes me really happy as living, breathing, polyamorus person. Everyone likes positive representation, even if its just people writing it on tumblr.

But lets take a step back and examine what polyamory means, and what you can do to make your polyverse better and more realistic.

What is polyamory?

A lot of people don’t know what it is, or they have a misguided idea of what these types of relationships look like based on the media and culture. On the most basic of levels, polyamory is simply a relationship consisting of more than one person where everyone is 100% in the know. This is not an excuse to cheat on partners. It is 100% consensual from everyone involved.

Polyamory consists of various different styles. There is the one that most of you are likely interested in - the one where everyone loves each other, has sex with each other, etc etc. But this is not the only form. There are poly relationships where not all members engage in sex but still love everyone, and there are even forms where two people are dating the same person, but they are not dating each other, but are 100% aware of the other person and consent to their relationship. 

Jealousy does exist in these relationships. But knowing how to step away from it, to remember that you are loved and cherished just as much as another is really important. Having trust in your partners enough to not let those emotions rule you. I have had poly relationships fail because people couldn’t set aside their jealousy. But its also important for one to step back and make sure that they aren’t acting in a way that is eliciting those negative emotions. Like… have you been devoting a significant amount of time with person y while person x could use a little more attention? Now, another important note is: expectations for relationships like this are dangerous. Remembering that no one owes you anything is important, and therefore you are not entitled to attention or affection. Similarly to RP, people get in moods where they want a specific type of attention, and perhaps you are not the one in the relationship that offers that. Remember that they still love you and your time will come as long as you aren’t an ass about it.

Communication is KEY. Remember to talk to your RP partners AND their muses about desires and thoughts. Muse having a bad time because x is happening? Maybe they’re jealous. If your muse doesn’t communicate those emotions, things could get worse. Just like in any regular relationship, communication is important, but its especially important when more people get involved. Speaking up when you’re uncomfortable instead of going with the flow is super super critical to a successful poly relationship.

Poly relationships aren’t just one big giant orgy all the time. Usually, its just a large cuddle pile while watching scary movies or arguing about who used the last of the coffee creamer - or goddamn it you two get out of the shower, I have to pee. Its sharing your life with more than one person. It’s knowing that one person cannot be your everything, and expecting that of someone isn’t fair. It’s knowing that you have so much love to give and knowing you’re going to get just as much back. It’s the idea that we all have more than one “soulmate” and sometimes you meet them all at once.

Give me more realistic poly relationships. Just. Give me more poly ships. I support your poly ships 100%. I just thought I’d give my insight based on my personal experiences. If you ever have any questions about it, don’t hesitate to ask, because I love talking about this kind of stuff.

I’m not in love
but god knows I want to be

I should be in love like a cloud, like a picture, like singing myself to sleep in the summer

I could be in love like a fight, like a slammed door, like screaming my voice hoarse when nobodies listening

But I want to be in love like a storm, like a hurricane, like twisting my ribs apart to set my heart free

And I’m not in love
but god knows I could be with you

GMG vs. Tartarus Arc - A Gruvia Parallel and Contrast

I really wanted to touch on the parallels and contrast between the end of the Grand Magic Games and the end of Tartarus, and why it’s important. 

The end of the GMG was very harsh for Gruvia fans, even if it wasn’t intended to be so. 

We had Juvia directly confessing her feelings for the first time to Gray. She was happy and excited. She had been building up to this moment since she first met Gray. It took her ages to amass the courage to finally be honest and open with him about how she felt. And she enthusiastically told Gray that she loved him. 

Gray however, literally turned his back on her, rejecting her feelings. We have Juvia crying comedically on the ground as he side-stepped her hug. We have Gray telling her he too has entered a new era, and would say no to things he disliked from now on. Gray was very harsh, he was very blunt, and he was very firmly turning down Juvia and her affections for him. But despite this refusal of her feelings, Juvia did not give up, and Gray seems quite horrified by her persistence. 

But now we come to the Tartarus arc, and things are actually quite similar to the end of the GMG. We have Juvia again building up to a confession. She followed Gray all the way to another continent in order to confess once more. However, this time her reasons behind the confession are very different. She again reminds him that she loves him, but in this case, it’s simply because she believes she shouldn’t love Gray any longer. She believes she has no right to do so, because she does something unforgivable by taking his father away from him.

She is completely shouldering this responsibility, and this is so important, because if she truly was the obsessive, stalker-ish and selfish girl others claim her to be, there is NO WAY she would willingly admit to something she is sure the person she desires most in the world, would hate her for. There is no way she would risk losing the chance of his love. 

So, essentially, she is there to confess her “crime” and also to announce that she’s giving up on him. Which seemed to be exactly the effect Gray had desired from her last confession and his subsequent rejection. He had wanted her to stop pursuing him. He was trying to actively discourage her and her feelings.

And yet, here Juvia is, finally in a place where she feels like she needs to let go of her love for Gray for his sake instead of her own, as it was no longer right in her mind, because of the pain she had caused him.  And yet even though she felt like she was doing the right thing, it was still terribly difficult as tears run down her face, but this time her tears aren’t comical like at the end of the GMG, but heartbreaking because she’s sobbing and trembling.

And Gray seems to react very negatively towards her once again. We see his gritted teeth as he approaches her. We see as he aggressively grabs Juvia. And Juvia is prepared to be rejected once more. In fact, she is sure she will be. And she’s bracing herself for it. 

And this is Gray’s moment. Juvia is finally discouraged. She’s giving up on him. But, unlike the GMG, he doesn’t try and distance himself from her. He does the exact opposite. He closes the distance between them, and more than he’s ever done with anyone ever before. He very vulnerably buries himself into her. Just like the GMG Juvia seems quite shocked by Gray’s reaction. But this time, he doesn’t refuse her. Instead he sobs. He thanks her. He apologizes to her.

And even more than that, he does not let her give up on him. He does not want her to let go of her feelings. He needs her feelings. He wants her feelings. He needs her warmth. And he holds onto her and them very desperately in this scene. He breaks down completely in his gratefulness and in his sorrow, and he finally let’s Juvia into his private world of sadness and pain. Because he wants her in his life. So, instead of the rejection, Gray is welcoming Juvia into his heart, and trusting his heart with this woman who had rendered him and his father this great service.

And Juvia holds him back in return. The hug that Gray had refused at the end of the GMG is now ultimately being reciprocated, and in the most emotionally exposed way Gray could have possibly initiated it. 

The silver lining to the events at the end of the GMG, was that they were accompanied by a silent promise that the next arc featuring Gray and Juvia, would have an ending that would serve as a sharp contrast to the one that came before it.

So, we ended this arc, not with a joke, or a rejection, but with a serious acceptance between two people, and another promise of even further developments as they start on a new journey by each other’s side.

Because Gray has taken a huge step forward by letting Juvia in, and both figuratively and literally embracing what she’s been trying to give him since she first met him, and that is her love and support. He’s no longer pushing her away. He is no longer shutting her out. He has let her into his life in a way no one else has been allowed in. And that sets her apart in Gray’s heart, and will continue to do so from this point onwards. Because they are truly in this together now.

Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice on the cross so that you may receive not only everlasting life but the true healing of your heart. His blood shed for you means that whatever is holding you captive has already been broken.
