she did it because there were people who needed her

Thirteen Reasons Why - Explained

Thirteen Reasons Why

I’ve seen a lot of posts about Hannah being a ‘drama queen’ or overreacting to small things everyone did so I thought I’d explain a bit about what I understood.

1. Justin - Justin exaggerated what he and Hannah did. While this seems mild, it set Hannah up for a terrible high school career because she earned the reputation of 'slut’. This happens so often in schools and in the adult world and can RUIN someone’s life in a certain, if not all areas.

2. Alex - Alex put Hannah as having the best ass against Jessica as the worst. It is clear that the internet is doing its thing again and not taking time to understand things properly; this was NOT A COMPLIMENT AND HANNAH HAD EVERY RIGHT TO BE ANGRY. It was a clear violation of friendship and an obvious example of men pitting women against each other for their own benefit.

3. Jessica - I’m going more by the book here, but Jessica was on the tapes because she didn’t believe Hannah and abandoned her when she needed her. A clear example of how people can easily be lead by others and girls turning on each other because of guys. Jessica deserved to be on the tapes because she didn’t hear Hannah’s side of the story and instead took her anger out on her first friend at the school.

4. Tyler - I don’t think I need to explain much about this, but he abused his position as a photographer in school to violate boundaries for his own pleasure similar to how a lot of people in a power exploit those below them. He made Hannah feel vulnerable and took the lack of comfort she felt at school to her own bedroom.

5. Courtney - I suppose this is kind of harder to understand. Courtney was a closeted lesbian and therefore it is understandable that she was upset at the thought of her being outed before she was ready, but Hannah confided in her to help her expose someone else and instead she protected herself by further ruining Hannah. This shows the selfishness of those who feel the need to protect themselves by harming others.

6. Marcus - I haven’t seen much on Marcus honestly, but I dislike him immensely. He took advantage of Hannah because of the impression of her he had put together from rumours created by other reasons (Justin, Courtney) which is an expression of how men feel owed something from women, especially those who are seen as 'slutty’.

7. Zach - At first glance, Zach doesn’t seem too bad. At half a second glimpse, this changes. Hannah rejected him because he said something silly, a mistake, and if he had made an obvious effort to explain and apologise, he could have helped Hannah. Instead, he chooses to punish her by preventing her from receiving happiness from others. This is one of the clearest examples of how men can’t handle a woman’s right to say 'no’ and reject him…

8. Ryan - This tape is similar to that of Tyler in that he made her feel unsafe. What Tyler did was worse than Ryan, however the effect of Ryan’s actions had (in my opinion) worse consequences that Tyler’s. Ryan published her poem because he thought it was something that needed to be shared, a selfish and naive action (when considering the maturity of high school students), which meant that Hannah’s personal thoughts were no longer her own. She was not comfortable at school, home or in her own mind.

9. Clay - Though I agree when Hannah states that he shouldn’t have been on the tapes, Clay does represent 'everyone else’ who stands by and watched people like Hannah slowly fade and retreat into themselves because of the actions of others. The 'bystanders’ if you will, whose lack of part in our stories can be just as important as those who intrude on us.

10. Justin - It is evident in the series that Justin was extremely haunted by the rape at Jessica’s party and this is probably why he is gaining so much sympathy… this is also why I recommend you all READ THE BOOK. Justin stood by and watched his friend rape his girlfriend, why is he receiving more sympathy than I’ve seen for Jessica? Of course it was hard for Justin to witness that, but staying friends with Bryce and staying with Jessica without telling her is reason enough for him to be on the tapes again.

11. Jenny - Jenny was kind to Hannah, offering her a lift home, but she didn’t take responsibility for knocking down the stop sign which lead to someone’s DEATH. The guilt that Hannah was left with from this (because she was in the car) was understandably overwhelming, especially as the victim was a classmate who was blamed for drunk driving. Jenny is an example of how our reckless actions and lack of responsibility for them can destroy other lives; is that not the entire plot?

12. Bryce - Lord help you if you need an explaination.

13. Mr Porter - A perfect example of how there is not enough support out there for students (and people in general, honestly). The counsellor advising Hannah to 'move on’ after she confides in him that she was raped is one of the most haunting moments in the entire series, solidifying her reason for suicide- she had no comfort amongst her classmates, in her own home, in her mind and now, the specialist designated for dealing with situations like this bore no real interest in her problems and told her to 'move on’.

It’s extremely important for us when watching shows with topics like this to remember many things.

First, the show is not just this situation. Everything represents something more in society; each tape side is a problem in the world that leads to suicide, not only a small action by one character leading to Hannah Baker’s suicide. If you need help in understanding this, or want something else similar to this story, I recommend watching or reading 'An Inspector Calls’ by J.B. Priestly- a masterful piece tackling classism/sexism and how each person’s seemingly small actions lead to a girl’s suicide.

Second, memes are sometimes funny. The 'Clay every time he sees Tony’ memes are really funny, the 'fuck off, Courtney’ memes are funny, but the 'welcome to your tape over a slight inconvenience’ memes, they’re not. The show is raising awareness for the seriousness of suicide, not to create a fanbase of jokes about it. Promoting these after you watch the show, is a clear statement that you haven’t understood why it was made and is completely unacceptable.

Third, separate the character from the actor. Justin Prentice is NOT Bryce Walker, do not spam his comments with disgusting name calling or threatening- this is CLEARLY wrong and unnecessary. This also works the other way: Brandon Flynn is NOT Justin Foley. Just because Brandon is attractive and nice, doesn’t mean his character becomes as such.

Please don’t turn 13 reasons why into another generic element of pop culture. I love pop culture, don’t get me wrong, but we have a tendency to begin digging for meaning and giving up halfway; overusing the profound starting points of progress we find by loosely throwing them around, emptying them of all meaning.

its so important to have disabled presence in children’s media, disabled kids grow up with really harmful messages about being burdens, ugly and unwanted and that needs to be challenged, we need to be showing disabled kids that they’re valued and amazing

like I remember a few years ago here in the UK, there was a disabled woman, Cerrie Burnell, who’s right arm ends a little past her elbow, who did some presenting on kids tv and parents wrote in and complained about her and said she was scary for children and shouldn’t be there because she was disabled

children are seen as being needed to be sheltered from the ~terrifying~ and ~horrifying~ reality of disabled people and that really hurts disabled kids and also massively contributes to adults hating and fearing disabled people since that’s what they were taught to do as kids

whether it’s disabled presenters or disabled characters, children’s media has to do more to acknowledge and celebrate disabled people

angel dumott schunard walked up to a perfect stranger, asked him “oh my god you okay honey?” took him home, dressed his wounds, gave him food and let him stay with her for the night, the next morning he brought her to meet his friends who were like family to him (the trust!!) and she invited them both to life support (“on christmas?” “some people don’t have anywhere else to go today” like if u cry everytime) and as they were leaving did a little dance to cheer up roger, someone she literally just met, because she didn’t want to see him sad, her friendship with mimi and mimi’s story about how she always helped those in need, i can’t remember where i was going with this but i literally love angel with my whole entire being and want to let everyone know she deserves everything that is good in the world

anonymous asked:

Rekina, I can't sleep. tell me a story please?

Hmmm ok imma make something up on the spot.

Once upon a time there was a quiet girl named Joanne. Joanne didnt like to talk, not because she was shy, but because she was always watching, always listening. She observed everything, sometimes too much. But she did it for one reason. To learn the weaknesses of everyone, just in case she needed to tear their lives down around them.

So she stayed quiet, watchful, learning every nuance of the people around her.

One day a boy named Gary was picking on her. He was a jerk who had lived down the street for years, ever since they were children. They were almost 30 now and still, he was relentless. But as Gary approached, Joanne knew her time had come.

“Gary,” she said smoothly. “I hope your day has been well.” Her words were cool, lined with steel and venom; a lifetime of icey rage lacing every syllable. Gary was utterly oblivious.

“Yeah, guess you could say that,” he crowed proudly. “Bet your day was as horrible as your hair.”

Joanne grinned, a spider laying her trap. “Always so funny, Gary.” She slid her eyes to the blue Toyota idling in the drive way. It was Gary’s pride and joy, though Joanne had never been able to discern why. It was average, nothing special, but Gary adored it. It was his prized possession. So she knew exactly the four words to bring his day down. “she’s looking beat up.”

Gary whipped his gaze to his car, a frown tugging at his lips. “What’d'ya mean? She’s pretty as ever.”

Joanne pursed her lips and flicked her eye brows up, lifting her shoulder in a slight shrug as she said, “if you say so.” She turned on her heel and strode into her house, having planted the seeds of self doubt in his head. He was a narcissist and egotistical, But he valued peoples opinions too much. He would question everything in his life now. His job, his house. It wouldnt be long until he was a mess.

She gave it till the end of the week before he got fired from his job. Then he’d see how much his, cheating, horrible wife truly cared for him. Joanne had heard her, drunk at the bar, complaining about her husband. How she was at her wits end with him. How one more slip, and she was gone. Joanne hummed to herself and smiled. Now to watch her work play out.


And that’s all i have time for anon, as I have my actual book to get writing haha! Sleep tight!

Reasons to go see the new Power Rangers movie

I’m a child of the 90′s. Power Rangers reigned supreme in my household when I was growing up. And when my brother, who is 9 years younger than me, started getting into Power Rangers, it was a way for us to bond. So obviously I was excited about the reboot.

Listen, I might be biased because of my nostalgia, but damn did I love this movie! Here’s why everyone should leave their house immediately and go watch this film.

1. Diverse Cast: I don’t really need to say it, but this cast is insanely diverse! So many different groups are represented in this movie! Every ranger is of a different ethnicity, which is acknowledged and appreciated by each member! And, beyond the surface differences that can be seen, there is an LGBTQ ranger and a ranger who is on the autism spectrum. One of my favorite parts is that we don’t need to speculate whether or not he might have special needs - he just comes right out and says it. “I’m on the spectrum…It’s a diagnosis.” And while he might have been protected a little more by the others, they didn’t try to baby him which is common for a lot of people who don’t often interact with people who have special needs. Instead, they utilized his strengths and worked with him to build his weaknesses.

2. Fantastic Acting: I gotta give a shout out to the actors who played the rangers. Holy cow, were y’all amazing! I’m honestly stunned with Becky G’s performance and how well she did, but that’s mostly because I haven’t followed her music career and seen what she can do. Girl, you were so good! And I believe that this was the first movie some of them have ever acted in. I’ll admit that the script was a little corny sometimes, but honestly it was 10X better than any script from the tv show, and the actors played them SO GOOD!!!!!

3. Great Chemistry: Some of these friendships felt so authentic and beautiful to me. A few interactions didn’t really excite me (Zack & Jason, mostly), but the rest of them held their own. Kimberly & Trini and Jason & Billy, for instance. The two girl rangers had such amazing chemistry together and every scene they did felt like they’d been friends their whole lives. There’s a lot of people shipping those two, but I’d be genuinely upset if anything less platonic happened between them. I just want Kimberly to be the girl friend that Trini comes to for girlfriend advice because their friendship is so great! Jason & Billy really were the BROTP of the movie though. The way Billy always looked to Jason for any minor thing had me laughing my ass off.

4. A Really Good Bad Guy: Anyone who’s ever seen the tv show knows that Rita Repulsa was kind of lame. She did the same thing every episode and hardly ever left her evil lair to do her own dirty work. Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa was actually kind of a scary bad guy. She wasn’t all talk, and the girl wasn’t afraid to get nasty. I can appreciate that in a villain.

5. Nostalgia: If you were also a big fan of the tv show, this movie has loads of amazing easter eggs for you! I was literally in the theater chanting “Megazord! Megazord! Megazord!” Not to mention Alpha’s “aye aye aye,” and the songs being played, and just ugh! My childhood heart was hurting.

6. Potential Sequel: The ending was set up for a sequel (wait for the credits and an extra scene will come) and honestly it has so much potential for what could come of the power rangers! I need it, and frankly, it hasn’t done that well at the box office so without your support there might not be a sequel at all!

All in all, this movie was really good and I would just love to share it with everyone and tell them to love it!

 The Fairy Tail Stone Age omake was full of fanservice, but there are several other omakes that have wonderful nalu moments with minimal fanservice. Unless stated otherwise or if it is set in an AU, omakes are considered canon material since they are side stories. 

1) Rainbow Sakura (Natsu uprooted a tree for Lucy. That is incredibly sweet and romantic. Don’t forget that this also means that Natsu has once again fulfilled a wish Lucy had since the first time was when he brought her to the Fairy Tail guild. Relationship goals!) 

2)  Special Mission: Beware of Guys Who Show a Keen Interest! (Lucy’s shoujo visions, Natsu blushing, flustered Lucy. Need I say more?! Despite how it ended, I still believe that this omake is important because it shows that Lucy potentially has hidden feelings for Natsu that she hasn’t fully come to terms with since she desires a “prince charming”. I don’t think Lucy would have reacted the way she did if her feelings for Natsu were “purely platonic”.) 

3) Natsu and Asuka (Don’t they look like happy parents in the cover? I find it funny when some people claim that Natsu and Lucy have no romantic chemistry like it’s a “fact”, yet a child wanted to see them kiss because they reminded her of her parents who are happily married. Additionally, we learn that Natsu had no issues with kissing Lucy. He didn’t have to listen to Asuka no matter how much she pouted. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t be fine with kissing my male best friend when I have zero romantic feelings for him.)  

4) Welcome to Natsu’s House (It’s adorable that Natsu cherishes his memories with Lucy. He even kept her maid outfit as a souvenir! This chapter was very sweet as a whole.)

5) Fairy Tail x Rave chibi omake (Lucy’s expression is adorable. Let’s not forget that Ellie and Haru are in love with each other.  Lucy viewing Natsu the same way Ellie views Haru speaks volumes.) 

6) Day of the Fateful Encounter (Lucy chose to be with Natsu and Happy over going on a date with a guy who seems to share her interests. Natsu remembering when Lucy joined the guild, Natsu’s joyful expression when he learns that Lucy chose to hang out with him instead, Lucy’s expression when she realizes that Natsu is her fateful encounter. Once again, need I say more?! Additionally, Cana’s card hinted towards romance. Since Natsu is her fateful encounter, could that be potential foreshadowing? *wink, wink*)

7) Coca-Cola (Even though Natsu and Happy should have just told Lucy that they accidentally burned her book, it was sweet of them to search every bookstore for another copy of the book to the point they were utterly exhausted just to prevent hurting Lucy’s feelings. Natsu and Happy were unable to see Lucy cry that they ended up crying as well. I just love these dorks! :D)  

8) The Christmas Omake (It’s known that people tend to be honest while they are drunk. Lucy is extremely affectionate towards Natsu when she is drunk. Ova 4 had already shown this, but the omake confirms that drunk Lucy being affectionate towards Natsu is canon.) 

That’s all I have to say for now. There are more nalu moments in other omakes, but these are the ones that stood out to me the most. They may not be canon yet but remember that we have all of these amazing shipping moments to fangirl over! 

Another Supercorp Headcanon; If they ever decide to have kids one day, they don’t go down the whole ‘science baby’ route with somehow combining their DNA to have a child that’s both of theirs and they don’t go down the route where they get a sperm donor and just one of them is the bio parent; they just adopt.

Like, both of them know what it’s like to be alone or afraid and Kara’s had a positive experience with adoption so she’d want to give other kids the chance to have a family even when they’ve lost their own. She’d want to help kids of all ages who’ve lost someone and just be there for them like the Danvers were for her and she’d be brilliant at it because she knows what it’s like and knows that the pain never really goes away but that it can feel a bit less around people who love you.

And Lena would be all for it was well because she’s had such a negative experience with adoption and wouldn’t wish that sort of thing on anyone so she works so hard to make sure all of the kids feel loved and included because she never did when she was taken in by the Luthors. She’s literally exactly what some of these kids need in their lives; someone who loves them and accepts them so fiercely at a time when they might be feeling like a burden.

And their home is just so happy and full of children of all ages and races and the kids are just so thankful for the family they’ve been given and they know that Kara and Lena and their adopted siblings will never replace the people they’ve lost but they also know that they’re not trying to and they’re just so content with being loved and cared for unconditionally.

So yeah, there’s that.

ablogthatishenceforthmine  asked:

Is it just me or has Clarke lost a lot of the relationships she had with the delinquents? Her and Jasper's relationship completely dissolved even after he stopped being angry. Her and monty have barely interacted in the past 2 season. Her and Octavia have been done for a while. Like I feel Bellamy is the only delinquent that she has a relationship with anymore. Hopefully, next ep we will see some more of her and raven's relationship. But it just makes me sad bc Clarke has almost all her friends.

No, it’s not just you and I think there’s a reason for this that plays into Clarke’s overall Character/Story arc. Again, y’all come and ask questions not expecting meta and then it just….springs out of my head because you guys just say the absolute right things.

What you said made me realize that…Clarke has been alone since Season 2. Like, we talk constantly about Clarke and Bellamy being co-leaders and discuss why that’s so frustrating, but we’re thinking as the audience, which means we haven’t taken the time to put ourselves in Clarke’s shoes. 

Although we know that Clarke can always depend on Bellamy to make the big decisions with her, and that he in fact has always been there for the “lever pulling moment” (even in S3, the script tells us Clarke finds strength in the memory of Bellamy helping her pull the lever in S2), but for most of every Season, Clarke has been isolated from her strongest support system: her people (and specifically-Abby and Bellamy).

Most people, when they discuss Clarke, say things like “I really miss Season 1 Clarke!” and “When will Clarke get back to her Season 1 self?” And I’ve seen people say “She’s not that girl anymore because of all of the things she’s had to do!” but the key difference between Season 1 Clarke and Season 2-4 Clarke is that she didn’t have her co-leader by her side. 

See evidence:

Clarke and Bellamy interact in a leadership based capacity in every single episode of Season 1, with no exceptions (they also have their friendship building moments). Clarke also has the benefit of being surrounded by the Core Four in this season (Raven and Octavia also play key integral roles in this Season). Clarke is noticeably not bearing the majority of the burden, and so even as she makes heavy decisions, someone else made the decision with her (even closing the Dropship on Bellamy wasn’t a decision she made by herself, Miller was the one who told her they didn’t have time and that they had to close the door now.).

Let me be clear and say that this in no way means that Clarke is more likable when she is with a man. I’m saying that Clarke is less burdened in Season 1, more open and she shares that burden more equally with those in her Core support system. 

Season 1 ends with Clarke isolate from others and Season 2 picks up the same way, Clarke alone, in a white sterile room. And this should have been the first sign of what was waiting for us in regards to Clarke’s journey. Even as she is surrounded by the 47 in Mt. Weather, Clarke obviously holds herself (and her plans to escape) away from them. When she escapes, she doesn’t escape with one of her people, she escapes with Anya, a Grounder leader (clever bit of foreshadowing there). She is reunited with her mother and Bellamy for only 4 episodes before she agrees with Bellamy’s plan to go into the Mountain. As soon as she takes L/xa’s advice “Love is weakness.”, Clarke’s separation from her support system becomes even more obvious: 

She and L/xa literally spend 2x10 away from their people being chased by a giant gorilla. 

In 2x11 Clarke actually takes control away from her mother (”You may be the Chancellor, but I’m in charge.”) and in doing so she pushes away one of her strongest supports (Abby) while her other (Bellamy) is in the mountain. Raven (the third part of the Core Four) is still furious with her over Finn’s death, and Octavia (4/4 of the Core Four) is too concerned with Bellamy and Lincoln’s absence to be much help. 

In 2x12, Clarke and L/xa abandon their people to a bomb, an act which leaves Abby horrified by her daughter and Clarke even more alone on this leadership journey than she’s been before (save L/xa), because Raven is at Camp Jaha and Octavia is in TonD.C. 

In 2x13, Clarke is still only partnered with L/xa, a solitary leader. 

In 2x14, Clarke is still partnered with L/xa, a solitary leader. 

In 2x15, Clarke and L/xa attempt to open the doors, but ultimately fail (which is a large bit of foreshadowing). 

In 2x16, Clarke is back with a team (Bellamy and Monty) and they succeed at taking down the Mountain but Clarke leaves on a solitary journey. 

Everything about Season 2 tells us that Clarke does better, is successful, when she is operating as part of a team, not a solitary leader. 

In Season 3, we open with Clarke again, separated from her people, and she remains that way until the very last seconds of episode 3x10 (almost the entire Season), even when she is back with her people for brief moments, she’s still rejecting the idea that she can, and indeed needs, to lead with others. Again, it’s not until the finale of Season 3 where Clarke stops trying to make decisions and lead by herself, that she finally succeeds and is able to defeat A.L.I.E. 

We’re seeing it again in Season 4, Clarke is isolated, even as she is surrounded by her support system, because she has not released the lessons she learned from L/xa (primarily) and Dante (only a bit). 

L/xa, as a divinely appointed leader, was raised to understand that the final say is and always should be hers. She was raised to believe that she did not need to depend on others, and that, as a function of her position, all others were subject to her wishes. 

Dante, as president, is also someone who doesn’t seem to have a group of people that he reports to, or who hold him accountable. 

Ironically, both faced similar fates (their people turned on them, both killed by a gunshot). 

We actually see a bit of this happen for Clarke in Season 4 (when Monty reads the list and I suspect we’ll see it again in 4x11), because Clarke is not allowing others to lead with her, her people are turning against her. 

Clarke has not yet accepted that she is not a person who is capable of being a solitary leader (Bellamy actually played on this in 4x11, when he pointed out all the times “they” saved everyone). Clarke wants to save everyone (her mother calls her on this in the pilot episode) and in her mind, part of saving everyone is also protecting them (at least she thinks she is) from making the life or death decisions. 

But Clarke hasn’t come to terms with the fact that she’s never truly made a life or death decision by herself, she’s never done any of her biggest saves by herself, and every time she tries to lead alone, she fails. Clarke is a leader who NEEDS others. 

And I am so hopeful that we will finally see the culmination of what has been a 3 Season long, achingly painful arc. 

Good Character Growth is not linear, and sometimes it takes Seasons before it reaches the end.

Word count; 3.212

Synopsis: Seoul was swarmed with gangs and in order to protect your little brother you made sure you could protect him and yourself but one night you followed your best friend into a club, which led your right into the arms of one of the biggest gangs.



“Omg, what was that!!” You whispered as you heard a bang, you and your friend were crouching between two cars when she suddenly stood up and pulled you along. “What are you doing?”

“There was a shooting and that’s the guy who pulled the trigger,” she whispered back as she pointed at the guy who was walking into a club. “Wait we’re not going to follow him right?”

“Of course we are, don’t you want to know why he shot the guy?”

“Ah let me think, NO NOT REALLY!” you whisper yelled at her but she kept walking and eventually she let go of your arm stating that it was your own decision if you wanted to come and at first you stayed outside but what if something would happen to her? You could never forgive yourself because she really couldn’t defend herself. You, on the other hand, could as you were boxing and doing Krav Maga and to top it off you danced so you decided to follow her. You quickly looked at your clothes and you were thanking the gods for dressing in a nice dress and for once doing your hair.

They let you through without blinking their eyes and as you roamed the floor, you spotted her at the bar but you had to dance to get through the crowd if you didn’t want to stand out so you put your hands in the air just like everyone else and swiftly danced through the crowd never knowing that you had already stood out. When you finally arrived at the bar your friend waved at you with a sly smile on her face and she was lucky that she was your friend otherwise you would’ve hit that smirk off her face. “Ya, what were you thinking?!”

“Come on, you must be curious. Haven’t you heard about the new gang who is controlling these streets, I just want to see how they look like.”

“Are you crazy! That’s why you came in here?” She nodded enthusiastically “Of course, maybe we can join them.” Your mouth dropped with a pop when she said that she was not in her right mind for wanting to join a gang, it would be interesting and it maybe could bring some protection for your baby brother and you but then again, it was not like you couldn’t protect him against the gangs that roamed the streets of Seoul. “Just get me a drink!” you yelled at her whilst slapping the back of her head for getting you in danger, she yelped in pain but ordered a beer anyway. The bartender was filling a glass but there was no way you were drinking from a glass as everything nowadays was getting drugged.

“I want a closed bottle.” you told the bartender and the look he threw your way was everything except friendly but he did return with a closed bottle but he didn’t give you a opener but then again who needed one if you could pop the head of with your hand. You took a long sip whilst scanning the floor and to be honest there was nothing weird going on and people were having a good time. “Why don’t you compete with those dancers over there?” she was again giving me a headache because you really didn’t want to battle with other dancers, not whilst wearing a tight dress. “We can take a look, I guess.” you grabbed her hand and dragged her with you and as you stood on the sidelines you couldn’t help but smirk because you were just as good as these guys and boy they were handsome. They were freestylers for sure and as the beats continued you couldn’t help but move with the music when suddenly a hand grabbed your waist and pulled you back. “The boss wants to meet you.” You felt an object pushed against your back and you knew it was a gun without looking so there was no other option then to come with him and as he led you back you were taking everything in, just in case you would have to run.

The guy was pushing you towards a door and ordered you to open it and once you were inside he moved away from you, now you could take a good look at the guy and you immediately noticed his length, he was tall and handsome but also dangerous as you spotted the gun in his hand. “Are you done staring at my friend?” His voice made you turn around immediately and there was “the Boss.” he was mesmerizing, he looked as if he could kill you in a second, he was not smiling but there was this knowing smirk on his face and you could tell that he was someone you shouldn’t mess with.

“What are you doing here?”

“I was having a good time.” You tried to sound polite but something in him made you want to be rude but you couldn’t provoke him. “You followed one of my men with that silly friend of yours. Why?” there was no point in lying right?

“She was curious and I couldn’t let her go alone.” you shrugged and that made him chuckle. “What could you do to protect her, you’re just a girl.” this made you angry because he didn’t even know you and still he was pulling the “you are a woman and there for you are weak” card and you even took a step forward which wiped the smile from his face. “Stop.” but you didn’t and without even thinking it through you grabbed him by his collar and pulled him up, which startled him for sure and that’s when you heard the safety being pulled from the gun but you couldn’t leave it at this and before you let him go you came even closer. “You don’t even know me so don’t you dare judge me.” you let him fall back and took a few steps back and without any indication, he started laughing. “Wow Y/N you really did change.” this confused the hell out of you because how did he know my name?

“How do you know my name?” You hand your one hand on your hip and the other was balled into a fist and as he finally got up he didn’t waste any time as he walked towards you and without realizing you actually walked back until a pair hands stopped you “thanks JK.” the guy chuckled and as “The boss” turned his attention back to you, you noticed that he wasn’t that tall but that really didn’t matter because he still looked dangerous but then it hit you as you were forced to look at him again from up close, he did look a bit familiar. “How is your little brother doing?” he asked a bit too friendly and the hairs were already standing up at the back of your neck, he didn’t just bring my brother into this right?

“Again how do you know my name.” you weren’t going to talk about you brother as it was none of his business. “How odd, you really don’t remember me do you?” This was confusing as hell and to be quite frank he was starting to piss you off. “Stop playing games and tell me how you know my name.” your voice was shaking but not with fear but more like restraining from the urge of hitting his too handsome face.

“They call me Suga now but my name was Min Yoongi.” That certainly did ring some bells, there was no way that this was the same guy you played with when you were younger and if it was really him, how could you not remember him, to be honest it was a while ago and you moved away from Daegu when your mother was ill and as he was at least four years older it wasn’t that strange that you couldn’t remember him but why was he here and the leader of this gang? “Ah, I can see you remember me now.”

“Min Yoongi? How can you be here and why are you the leader of this gang, what happened to you?” you know you were asking way too much at one time but he never wavered as he stayed right in front of you. “That really doesn’t matter, what does matter is that you shouldn’t have followed your friend inside my club.” the bad feeling you had got even worse, what was he going to do.

“She is my friend why shouldn’t I follow her?”

“Because she is already done for.” this shocked you and as he noticed the shock his smile became evil and you just wanted to run away when the door opened and my friend got thrown in rather hard but instead of looking upset she was actually laughing. “Suga.” was her only remark and this surprised me because how did she know him?

“You shouldn’t have come here, you know that right?” Yoongi finally stepped away from me and crouched down in front of her and she actually spit in his face and the next thing he did made you jump as he hit her hard, the clap was ringing through my ears and as you were trying to move towards them, you got stopped by a hand who was holding you back but as your friend laid there your adrenaline went through the roof and you actually grabbed the hand of this person and flung him over your shoulder, this all happened so fast that Yoongi didn’t see you coming as you kicked him out of the way and as you flung her over your shoulder you heard a gun but it didn’t stop you and the minute you touched the doorknob the gun went off and the bullet went straight into your shoulder, which made you drop her to the floor. You didn’t want to give up and picked her up again but this time you couldn’t do anything except for letting you lean on your good shoulder but of course, you didn’t come far as Yoongi had already called in backup and as the two guys were approaching you, you knew you were done for. “Y/N, just go. You have to get back to your brother, just go!”

You stared at her in horror, how could she ask me to leave her behind? This was not happening, after all those years avoiding gangs, she dragged me right in and now she was even insisting on leaving her here. “I can’t leave you,” you said to her in utter shock but she was right about your little brother what if they decided to kill you for helping her? You were having a battle inside but it was already too late because of your hesitation Yoongi had the opportunity to get close and the thing he did next made everything go black as he put his finger in your bullet wound and that’s when you heard a gun going off.

You woke up as something cold was getting pressed against your forehead. The thing that startled you was that it was your little brother who was taking care of you, you were back at your house and in your own bed. “How did I come here?” you mumbled and your brother immediately turned to you with a smile on his face. “A handsome guy brought you here and told me you had a bit too much to drink.” you shot up but let yourself sink back when you felt your painful shoulder, it wasn’t a dream, you were really shot but what happened to her, did she survive or.. “How did he look like?”

“Uhm he had black hair, he wasn’t really tall but you could tell he was powerful,” he said as he sat down on your bed, he had something in his hand and you pointed to it. “What’s that?”

“Ah ye, he told me to give this to you.” he handed it over but you didn’t open it yet just out of fear because whatever happened yesterday, it wasn’t good and you had to pay a price for disobeying him. “Can you get me something to eat?” you asked him and he immediately moved away. With trembling hand, you opened the letter, which said

“Tonight at 11, make sure you are ready.”

It was signed with an S but it was obvious from whom this was coming, it also meant that he knew where you lived but how did he know that? It can’t be that he had been watching me right? This meant that you and your brother weren’t safe any longer but you weren’t going down without a fight, you had been training for this kind of things and if Yoongi thought you couldn’t protect yourself and your brother then he was wrong because even though you’re not wearing a gun it didn’t mean you didn’t know how to use one. You were going to meet him tonight but if he thought you were going to dress up than he was mistaken.

You brought your brother to school after making sure you took something for the pain in your shoulder. You couldn’t let people see you were in pain so ignoring it was the best option, the thing was though that you had a fight later today, which you couldn’t cancel as it paid the rent. “Be careful okay? I will be here at three to pick you up,” you yelled after your brother because there was no way he was going home by himself not after yesterday, not now that you were followed. You knew they were following you from the moment you stepped outside and it was funny to see how they tried to hide but what did worry you was that they were not Yoongi’s men at least not the ones you had already seen.

You stepped into the ring and as the challenger got in, you had to smile because this was going to be easier than you would think. “Alright ladies let’s start.” the referee made us bow and that’s when the fight started, it was a shame that she was still so young but you couldn’t let her win, not whilst people were looking at you from different gangs. Within six minutes you had knocked her out and you had to hand it to her, she was strong and the punches you received actually hurt and you surely would have a black eye at the end of the day but the thing that hurt the most was your shoulder and you were sure it was bleeding again. You walked into the dressing room and as your were changing your clothes someone walked in and locked the room. “Where is your friend?” he didn’t give you a chance to say anything as he pressed you down, he knew about the wound as he put his finger on it, it was also the only reason why you buckled. “I don’t know.” you were clenching your teeth as he pushed through the stitches, you couldn’t help scream it out. “LET GO!!” you yelled at him but he only chuckled.

“Not before you tell me what happened yesterday?”

“I don’t know what happened yesterday, I got really drunk, I blacked out.” You were desperate and took the lie that Yoongi told your brother. “You’re lying, how did you get this wound?” to make it worse he actually put his finger in it and that’s when you started to see stars.

“We killed her.” You recognized the voice and that’s when you were kicked to the side, you yelped in pain when someone suddenly held you gently. “Just stay still, it will be okay.” You didn’t recognize this voice but it sounded really friendly. “What do you mean you killed her?!” the guy was raising your voice but Yoongi stayed calm. “Just as I’m saying, we killed her, she trespassed after three warnings.”

“She did nothing wrong!”

“Really, that’s why she was dealing in my club?”

“Aish damn girl but still you should’ve sent her back to us.” Yoongi was clicking with his tongue, you could easily tell he was losing his patience. “I did twice already but she still came back and this time she even dragged down someone important to me and that’s unforgivable.” You knew it was over as the other guy didn’t say anything but there was still a tense atmosphere around us and then it hit you because he had hurt me, they were going to do something to that guy but that really wasn’t something you wanted to be a witness of. “Let me go, please?” you whispered to the guy who was holding you but he didn’t budge. “Please, I won’t tell anyone, I just really want to go home.” You’re not going anywhere, I’m sorry.”

“You know what happens to people who hurt the people I care about right?” The guy didn’t say anything as he knew the penalty, this was a penalty that everyone knew about because not only did you disrespect the leader but you also brought danger to your own members, it was an unforgivable one, which was paid by the only thing that would make sense to these guys and that was death. That’s when you heard the safety being pulled from the gun and before you could say anything the gun went off. You had your eyes on them when it happened and you felt sick to your stomach but you couldn’t look away even though this was wrong it felt nice that someone wanted to protect you and you couldn’t help but respect Yoongi, speaking of which, he turned and came straight to you even the hands that were holding you were gone and yoongi pulled you gently into his arms but as he put his arms around you,  you immediately felt your shoulder, which had been numb the entire time, probably because you were in shock but now it was hurting like crazy.

“Are you okay, we heard you scream.” You shook your head and that’s when he saw the blood on your shoulder, that was also a thing, as you were wearing nothing but a sports bra and shorts, you felt humiliated. “Your stitches!” he sounded alarmed but you pushed him away because it was his fault that you need stitches in the first place. “This is all your fault, I wouldn’t be in trouble if you left us alone but noooo you had to kill my friend and shoot me in the process!” Your anger surfaced but as you were in pain it really didn’t matter.

“I know, I shouldn’t have shoot you but then again you should’ve listened to me, I’m reasonable but not when I’m dealing with a problem.” you were staring at each other and you could feel the tension but it wasn’t all anger, it was also passion, the chemistry was electrifying and it wasn’t a surprise when Yoongi pulled you closer but before he could put his mouth on yours, one of the guys scraped his throat, making you jump away from Yoongi.

“We should look at her shoulder Yoongi.”

“Chichi tricked Goku into marrying her”

How. How did she do that. By echoing Ox King’s sentiment that they have an arranged marriage, and asking him to marry her when they grew up? By laughing it off and saying “don’t be silly” when Goku said he didn’t know what that meant–because, my god, why would anyone assume someone doesn’t know what marriage is. It’s not like Chichi knew Goku’s backstory. Would you assume if someone played dumb about marriage, that they really needed an explanation? 

At that point, Goku and Chichi were pre-teens. Arranged marriages are usually set during early childhood or even infancy–so why would she have any reason to think that their arrangement, which was approved by her father, and herself and given Goku’s consent, was an empty one? 

To “trick” means to deceive, to mislead. How did she do that? 

Oh wait, she didn’t, and people who say that she did are out of touch with the series and repeating false, ignorant statements. 

renaroo  asked:

So your DickBabs commentary is some of the best around, but I was wondering if you might be willing to explain what works about BatCat for you? : )

So, it’s taken me forever to answer this because my life has been ridiculous lately and also I’m terrible sometimes, but! I did not forget about you, dearest of Renas! (To those who don’t know, this post is to celebrate Rena reaching 1000 followers!) So, let’s get down to this:

(Also: Thank you for the compliment on my DickBabs commentary. <3 *hugs*)

So, I think a lot of people spend most of their time talking about why Selina is good for Bruce when they talk about this ship, and there’s definitely a lot to be said there and I’m going to get to that, but I want to start off talking about why I think Bruce is good for Selina, which is a side that I think often gets ignored. (Possibly because Bruce gets such a bad reputation that people can’t believe he could possibly contribute anything positive to a relationship - but that is only true when Bruce is written by terrible writers like Frank Miller, and I firmly ignore that characterization of Bruce.)

So, to get there I’m going to start off talking about this scene, which is one of the most essential Bruce/Selina scenes in my book:

This is from the first issue of Ed Brubaker’s Catwoman run, which I’m sure you already know, but I’m just stating it for the record so that if anyone is reading this post and hasn’t picked up Ed Brubaker’s Catwoman run, consider this my advertisement for it: Go pick up Ed Brubaker’s Catwoman run. You will not be disappointed. (Also… not to beat a dead horse, but… the above scene is the note Ed Brubaker chose to begin his Catwoman run on. Let’s just compare that to how Judd Winick chose to begin his. *moment of silence*)

Anyway, there are a handful of scenes that just define Bruce and Selina to me, that are the first to come to mind when I’m thinking about how I see their dynamic and why I ship them, and this is one of the major ones. Because here’s the thing I think so many people miss: The reason Bruce treats Selina differently than his other antagonists isn’t just because he thinks she looks hot in her costume. It’s because he knows she’s not a villain, at the core of who she is. He thinks she’s a good person, in spite of everything. And that is so, so important.

See, here’s the thing: Selina is someone who’s been underestimated and dismissed for most of her life. She’s been looked down on for her gender, her lower-class background, her history in sex work. And when she has been taken seriously, she’s been perversely appreciated for the bad side of who she is. The few people to really respect her have appreciated her intelligence and skills for how useful she could be to them as a thief. But no one really looked at her and saw her as someone with the potential to be more than a thief. (Not even Holly, although Holly’s relationship with Selina is positive and good for Selina in different ways.) Certainly no one saw her as someone with the potential to be a hero - until Bruce.

And if you’ll forgive me for going into Psychology Major mode for a minute: People will live up or down to expectations. If you’ve been treated all your life as if you can’t be anything but a thief and a troublemaker and someone with purely selfish interests, it’s really hard to believe that you can be anything else. It’s not impossible, and I’d certainly never suggest that Selina never did anything heroic or altruistic until she met Bruce. But it’s hard. Someone believing in you is a really, really powerful thing.

This is something that, for all its faults as a movie, The Dark Knight Rises did get very right about Bruce and Selina’s relationship:

Selina tries to present herself as someone driven purely by selfishness, but Bruce sees through that: “I think there’s more to you than that.” And I think what Selina says in response is so revealing. It’s clearly intended as a denial - saying that if he keeps expecting her to be better, he’ll only keep being let down in response. But it also clearly shows that he’s gotten to her - which is, of course, confirmed by the decisions she makes later in the movie. As much as she wants to pretend it doesn’t, Bruce’s faith in Selina has an effect on her.

The thing is, knowing you’ve let someone down isn’t a pleasant feeling. But it can sometimes be a positive thing. Knowing you’ve let someone down means knowing that they had high expectations for you in the first place. It means someone saw you as capable of making the right decisions, and that’s actually much healthier than knowing you didn’t let anyone down because they never expected anything better of you to begin with.

Bruce is good for Selina because he looks at her and says “I believe that deep down, you’re really a good person.“ Because he looks at her and says ”There’s more to you than that.” And that’s something Selina hasn’t had a lot of in her life, maybe something she’s never had until Bruce comes along. He sees past her bad side and sees her potential to be something better. And instead of letting her off the hook, he challenges her to be the person he knows she’s capable of being. He has faith in her. He believes she can be a hero, and eventually that leads to Selina believing it, too. 

(But it’s so, so important to note that Selina doesn’t start acting more heroic for Bruce. She’s not doing it because he wanted it or to make him happy. She does it because it’s right for her. At her heart, Selina is a hero - all Bruce did is see the heroic qualities that were in her all along.)

The second reason I ship them so hard together is: They help each other have fun.

(The comic this panel is from - Catwoman #32 - is basically my all-time Bruce/Selina issue ever, and you’ll definitely be seeing more scans from it in this post.) 

Bruce is the one who needs more help in this area, obviously, like he says here. It’s no secret that Bruce is serious and withdrawn even with the people he loves most, and has a tendency to focus on The Mission above everyone else. So it’s a huge deal that he’s playful and mischievous and flirtatious with Selina, because not many people get to see that side of him. And no one brings it out in exactly the way that Selina does. He lets himself relax around her in a way which is really good for him:

(See? I told you we weren’t done with that issue! I love this scene because you so rarely see Bruce - or Selina, for that matter - being so completely relaxed and happy and normal.)

But I think it’s worth noting that Selina always looks like she’s having just as much fun as Bruce is, and I think that’s really good for her, too. I think people tend to forget that as much as Selina is by nature a more playful and flirtatious person than Bruce, she isn’t really a much happier one. She’s had a really hard and lonely life over the years, and that’s why it’s so great to see how genuinely happy she seems with Bruce:

I always love how huge Selina’s smile is in the first panel of this sequence (drawn by the always awesome Cameron Stewart). She’s just having so much fun, and I think that’s really just as good for her as it is for Bruce.

Even when they’re fighting, it’s very often play-fighting more than anything else:

(This scene, which is from Batman: The Brave and the Bold, can be watched here. And it is awesome.)

Look at those smiles. Bruce and Selina just bring out the fun side in each other, and I really love that. You’d never see Bruce smiling like that if he was fighting, say, the Joker. (For good reason.)

This is something Gotham has also gotten very right in their depiction of baby!Bruce and Selina:

SO. FREAKING. CUTE.

AHEM. *is mature*

(By the way: Do you remember a while back when I sent you a message that was basically like “RENA RENA RENA YOU HAVE TO GO WATCH GOTHAM NOW”? It was right after this episode aired.)

I find this scene particularly poignant because this is not long after Bruce’s parents have died, and it’s the first time you really see him having fun, smiling and laughing like that. Frankly, it’s the first time in the show that you see Bruce or Selina acting like normal children. (Even Alfred notices and is forced to approve of Selina!) And even as adults, I think they still bring out that lighthearted side in each other:

Although as this scene shows, what Bruce and Selina consider “fun” might not be what most people consider fun, which bring me to my next point: They just get each other, on a very fundamental level. Partly that’s because they’re very alike, and partly because they’ve come to understand each other over the years. There’s this scene I really wish I could have found - I tried, believe me - where (if I’m remembering correctly) Selina is sneaking into Gotham during the No Man’s Land era, and Bruce knows exactly how she’ll do it - because it’s the same way he would. Bruce and Selina are also very different from each other in certain ways, obviously, but a lot of the time they’re just very in sync like that:

Despite their differences, Bruce and Selina have a lot in common. They’re both highly intelligent and skilled, they’ve both known a lot of tragedy in their lives, they’re both far lonelier than they care to admit. They’re both hesitant to trust people. They both follow a unique moral code that others don’t always understand - though those moral codes are not exactly the same. They’re both highly independent and can be too stubborn for their own good. At their heart, they’re both driven by a very real desire to help other people. And I think they’re similar in a more indefinable way, too. They’re just cut from the same cloth, somehow. They understand each other both instinctively and also, as the years go by, because of the true friendship they’ve formed:

I think that’s something that’s so often overlooked with Bruce and Selina: People look at them and only see the Cat-and-Bat game, the “lovers on opposite sides!” trope, and they overlook the fact that Bruce and Selina are genuinely friends. More than that, despite all the odds, they’ve come to really trust each other over the years. Even though they still disagree over plenty of things, they know they can always turn to each other in a time of need:

I think nothing says more about how much Bruce trusts Selina than the fact that he willingly told her his secret identity - something that I’m not only pretty sure was unheard of for Bruce to do, it’s pretty dang unheard of in the superhero world in general. For a point of comparison, Clark didn’t tell Lois his secret identity until after they were engaged, and whether you think that’s good writing of Clark or not (I don’t, necessarily), it still says something about what a big deal it was for Bruce to trust Selina that way. In the superhero world, telling someone your secret identity is basically the biggest statement of trust you can make.

Bruce telling Selina his secret identity (though I firmly headcanon that she’d figured it out anyway) is a huge statement - and, as he basically says himself here, tantamount to an admission that he wants a real relationship with her. For Bruce to willingly make that leap is huge.

Because of that trust, you see Bruce and Selina really open up to each other in a way that they really don’t with most people, especially other love interests. They’re willing to let themselves be vulnerable and emotionally open. And Bruce is actually vocal about his feelings in a way that you practically never see:

Now, obviously Heart of Hush as a storyline is not without its problematic elements, but I still love this scene. Because Bruce pouring his heart out like that? Bruce basically never does that. Getting an “I love you” out of Bruce is a big deal already, but an entire speech? That says a lot, again, about how much he’s willing to open up to Selina. (Granted, she was pretending to be asleep… but let’s be honest: he most likely knew she was pretending.) 

I think it’s also significant that pretty much any time either of them dreams about settling down, or there’s an alternate universe where they do, it shows them ending up married to each other:

I think for both Bruce and Selina, when they imagine living a normal life, they think about having a normal relationship with each other, ending up married. But they think that because they’re not “normal”, they can’t have that - which is a theme going back to the earliest days of their relationship:

(This scene is from Batman #3, which also happens to be the issue where Selina kissed Bruce for the first time.)

Bruce and Selina will never be “just another boy and girl”, and I think they both assume that means they can never have anything resembling an actual committed relationship. The fact that they were starting to take steps in that direction before the reboot was a huge deal for both of them. But I think it’s going to take a lot of character growth for both of them before they realize that they can have an actual relationship without either of them compromising who they are.

One more reason to ship them: Bruce moons over Selina like a little schoolboy. Enough said. ;-)

CONTROL YOUR FACE, BRUCE. You are supposed to be the terrifying personification of justice and the night and you’re acting like an absolute goober.

(And it’s amazing.)

Oh, and Dick approves:

Dick approves so much that Dick is actually the one who encouraged Bruce to tell Selina his secret identity, which, again: Huge frickin’ deal.

It’s not just a “Ha ha, Dick ships it” thing, either. Dick knows Bruce better than pretty much anyone. So the fact that Dick looks at Bruce’s relationship with Selina and says “Yeah, this relationship is good for you”? That says a lot. Because Dick knows what he’s talking about when it comes to Bruce.

Also, they have almost 75 years of history, which is pretty dang cool:

I’m a sucker for history. And theirs is a 75-year-long multimedia history spanning comics, cartoons, live-action TV, movies, and videogames, which just makes it even more amazing. 

In conclusion: Have some of my miscellaneous favorite Bat/Cat scenes that I couldn’t find a way to include in this post.

(This is another scene that speaks to how well Selina understands Bruce… and also brings up a very important point about Bruce’s nature that far too many Batman adaptations forget.)

(I did warn you there’d be a lot of scenes from this issue.)

And last but not least:

Yeah. That seems a good note to end this post on.

Hope you enjoyed, sweetheart! (And same goes to anyone else reading this, too!)

you know ever since listening to that last taz episode all i can think about is how the starblaster runs on bonds and even though lucretia was alone with a broken ship it still sailed and like… i can’t stop thinking about how either the bonds she has with her dead crewmates are so strong that it worked anyway or she just had a real good relationship with the fish

This fandom is full of sexists

trigger warning: mentions of homocide, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and other triggering topics. Read at your own risk and stay safe.

before you attack me for this statement, listen.

Rika is a woman who’s clearly suffering schizophrenia and has a god complex. Despite what the fandom thinks, she’s really not at fault here. Why do you think that whenever someone does something bad the first that’s done is to give the suspect an evaluation of their mental health. If they’re to actually be suffering from mental health they won’t be arrested, they’ll be locked in the psych ward. Rika LITERALLY couldn’t control her mental illness, she thought she was saving everyone around her. I’m not saying everyone should love her but everyone should consider these factors. Rika thought everyone she affected was being saved, from the very beginning she wanted to help people. But her illness caused her to get so paranoid she believed that the one person who was OBSESSED with her was out to kill her. This is what mental illness does, none of you seem to realize this. And before you go “oh shut up you’re taking this too personally” Cheritz WANTS us to have these discussion. As someone who’s played their games for a while I know that all their games are meant open up conversations about things like planning for the future or overcoming greif. In Mystic Messenger it was mental illness. Every character had something wrong that was being ignored by the people around them, this includes Rika.

In my interpretation of the game, Rika is meant to show us that unlike what everyone on this goddamn site seems to think, mental illness is not calm. Mental illness can make people manipulative, paranoid, agressive, or even homicidal. Not everyone turns into a soft sad little creature who needs hugs and kisses. I know because I’ve suffered schizophrenia since a child. I used to be very agressive and rude. I wouldn’t even trust MY OWN PARENTS because I thought they were out to hurt me. In middle school, I was extremely manipulative and had this idea that everyone needed to be controlled by me and that I was doing them all a favor. MENTAL ILLNESS IS NOT CALM OR NICE Rika is a perfect example of that, I can relate a lot to her because many of her actions were terrifyingly similar to my own. People forget that she really did think she was saving everyone, she seriously did. But no, because she’s a woman she’s just a snake. :/

Wanna know why I stated that this fandom is full of sexists? Look at the other characters who suffer mental illness and are very aggressive. Saeran killed V, which many of you seem to forget. Knowing him, Saeran has probably killed more people as well. But it seems sooo easy for all of you to understand he was suffering. You all act like every other character is an innocent little angel who did nothing wrong, why isn’t this the case for Rika? The other characters did bad things, in my opinion (as much as I love him) this is partially V’s fault . He told Rika she didn’t need the medicine and that she could live without therapy. Didn’t he say that he enjoyed her suffering? And that he enjoyed suffering with her? Guys, V is definitely not a perfect angel. He’s another victim of mental illness. If anything, I’d say he kept her from receiving help because he didn’t want her to get locked away. He didn’t try to stop anything, he didn’t try to help anyone…but he’s still a victim just like Rika is. Everyone in that game is a victim. It would have been different if Rika was fully aware of how much damage she was doing to others but just didn’t care. THAT would definitely make her a bitch and a very hateable character.

Why is it that when an artist flipped the story around and made Rika be in V’s place and made V the cult leader, you all started going on and on about how V is “so hot” and how you would all support him? How come whenever Rika is turned into a guy she’s suddenly “hot” and all of sudden you all love her? If you AREN’T one of the people who did that, congratulatons, you’re not sexist and you clearly have a good head in your shoulders. But if you DID??? wtf?? And its not just this fandom, I see it in other fandoms. Male psychopaths and sociopaths are always seen as being amazing and their condition is what makes them hot. This is SO sexist and makes me geniunely concerned about how much you people really do know about mental illness in real life. The only time I’ve seen a female character receive massive amounts of love despite her mental illness is when she has something like depression, or anxiety because those are seen as the “tragically beautiful” illnesses or the cute little “quirks” of a character. Or ya know(especially in the anime fandom), if she’s a yandere, who is typically very aware of the harm she’s doing to other people.

Remember, I’m not saying you should automatically love her and worship her, she still did very wrong things. But she, like he male characters in the game, was a victim to something she LITERALLY can’t control. The way some of you talk shows how ignorant you are about mental illness. You can’t control it. I can’t control my emotions, hell this took me so long to write because I had to stop in between because my emotions were getting out of hand(which is why this is structured weirdly). I cannot control my outbursts without my medication, I try so so hard but sometimes I just can’t resist hurting someone physically or emotionally. Of course, I am much better than I was when I was younger but there are still times when I have to spend a few months in a hospital. THIS is mental illness, THIS is what it can do to people. That’s what it did to Rika. It destroyed her and everyone around her and as you all know, it wasn’t pretty at all. The real antagonist in mystic messenger is mental illness. I applaud Cheritz for showing people how horrible mental illness can be, and how many victims it creates. Its a shame that a lot of you missed it.

Don't know if someone already asked but here we go. Maybe Sombra, Lena, or Widowmaker run into S/O and find them very cute. S/O is kinda oblivious and doesn't think much of it (because these girls are REALLY HOT and s/o is kinda shy) anyway. S/O talks to other people and in which case sombra,Lena,or widow get jealous >:D. Idk I just kinda like this idea (you don't have to do these girls I just really like them :]). Thank you for reading my idea chèrie 😘

This request has me weAk. Also the requester is such a lovely person so yes! I sprinkled a bit of hella references in this one. The reference in Sombra’s is pretty obvious since I mention a character name and the company behind where he’s from, but the one in Tracer’s is a little more subtle. Hope you enjoy it and have a fantastic day! ~ Mod Lottie

Sombra

“Hm, what do we have here? A cute little bunny for me to play with?”

“O-oh, if you want to play something with me let’s make sure it’s not an online multiplayer game. I’m level 147 on GTA and I don’t want to get banned after all that hard work if you hack with it”

Sombra stands there, confused. She had been so obviously hitting on you and yet, there you were brushing her off, or at least that’s what she thought.

“I… You do realize that’s not the type of hacking I do, right?” She questions. You open your mouth to respond but she cuts you off, “Nevermind that, for someone who’s usually so quiet and shy, you sure know how to shut a girl down quickly. I can respect that.”

“I’m sorry?” You ask, legitimately confused to what she was talking about. She scoffs in response.

“I’ll leave you alone. I can take a hint cariño.” She leaves you to your own endeavours and wonders how she could read the atmosphere so wrong. You always blush and stammer around her which led her to believe you were into her just like she was into you.

It took her a while to over analyze the situation as she tends to do sometimes. Maybe it wasn’t attraction but fear? No it can’t be, you seemed to actually want to spend time with her when you thought she was asking to pl- Oh. OH!

She rushed around the base searching for you. You weren’t brushing her off, you were just oblivious to her advances. It all makes sense now. Maybe there’s still hope!

After a few minutes she finally found you, but with D.Va. You two sat in the common room, you with a controller in hand concentrating on a puzzle that Hana was trying to explain the solution to.

“Look, the note has the Sagittarius sign THEN the Scorpio sign. When you look at the walls you can see they are linked to the numbers 10 and 2 so you obviously add them together, so find the rock that has 12 on it.” Hana explains.

“No no wait, but what if it’s just the numbers by themselves? Maybe that old pirate guy put stuff behind two rocks.” You argue your logic. Hana gently takes the controller away from you, leaving you pouting as you watch her walk the character over to the rock with the Roman numeral of twelve on it. She pressed the button prompt and it triggered a cutscene.

“See? I told you! Nathan told you! Naughty Dog told you!” Hana gloats, causing you to huff in response. Suddenly the screen starts to glitch out and Sombra’s signature skull appeared.

“Hacking a single player game? That’s an entirely new low.” Hana whines. You turn to face Sombra, her face looked like she was half amused half pissed.

“I believe it’s my turn to play. After all, (Y/n) here did ask me to play with them first~” She says smugly as she sashayed over to sit next to you. She plucks the controller out of Hana’s hands and waves her hand over the screen to wipe away her hack to show the game once again.

“Ah… the um, the controls are um…” You stutter out. You felt the need to interact with her as much as you could since you felt you might’ve unintentionally offended her earlier which was still a mystery to you.

“Don’t worry your cute little head cupcake, I got this.” She smirked, patting your head while her eyes never left the screen. She got through the rest of the level without a hitch, there were no delays in her timing which made everything go smoothly and look like a movie instead of a game. Both you and Hana were in awe.

“Hmph, show off.” Hana grumbles.

“Oh? Is the gaming princess grumpy?” Sombra laughs at Hana’s reaction, “Look Hana, no hacks!”

“Did you just reword a meme at me?” She asks only to be ignored as Sombra picked you up bridal style.

“If you’ll excuse me, I have a date to go on.” Sombra sends a smile over her shoulder as she walks out of the room.

“A date? With who?” You asked, blushing because of the close proximity. Sombra laughed as she rolled her eyes.

“You’re more dense than I thought. I’m taking you out my cute little bunny.” She said. Your eyes widened as you finally connected the dots.

“Let’s play another game~”

Tracer

Lena Oxton. Your first friend at Overwatch. The girl that you aren’t sure if she just wants to be friends or if there could be something more, and god knows how much you wanted something more of it. These types of uncertainties always felt like treading on thin ice and you always chose the safe way around it. You didn’t mind just being friends because at the end of the day, just being able to hang out with her and seeing her happy was contentment enough for you. The fear of ruining that prevented you from seeing anything as more than platonic.

Let’s take tonight as an example.

Lena asked you to watch a movie with her. Just you, her, a horror movie, and all your favourite snacks. The movie was actually scary, not just a sequence of cheap jump scares but actually a thrilling horror movie that lives up to its genre. Let’s just say you won’t be looking at turkey basters the same way anytime soon.

During the movie, she hesitated but Lena ended up putting her head on your shoulder. Your heart raced so much, Lucio and Tracer both would have competition with how fast your heart was beating. Lena obviously knew that her actions were nowhere near platonic but you were having trouble with the idea. You thought it was because you wanted it to be romantic that you were thinking it might be so you brushed it off as if she was just being a gal pal. A brit being a mate.

“Say (Y/n), do you maybe wanna go out with me?” Lena worked up the courage to say. Yet again, your oblivious self courted it off as your mind playing tricks on you.

“Of course! You’re my best friend! Where do you want to go?” You asked. Lena’s face dropped when you referred to her as your friend and she took it as a sign to just back off with the advances. She managed to throw a random place for a suggestion despite her disappointment and for the rest of the night, everything felt off.

The next morning, Lena gave herself a pep talk to not be so down in the dumps about what happened. She decided to get you a nice breakfast from a café you like. Food in hand, she blinked to your room.

“Heya lo- I mean (Y/n), are you awake yet?” Tracer called from the other side of your door but got no answer.

“Can I come in?” She continued, still no answer, “Alright, I’m comin’ in.” She opened the door and saw you weren’t in your room. She wandered around the base in search of you. She looked everywhere only to find you in the med bay. You and Mercy were sitting down, facing each other. She saw her getting very close to you, raising her hand to your flushed face. She couldn’t take much more of it.

“Oi! What’s goin’ on here?” She asked immediately as she blinked into place. Angela retracted her hand away from you as she looked up at Tracer with a confused expression.

“Lena, what’s wrong? Just tell me and I’ll tend to you right after I’m done with (Y/n) here.” She explains.

“No, I’m here to… What’s wrong with them doc?” Lena asks.

“I think I might have food poisoning.” You say sadly.

“Might? You do have food poisoning! Be more considerate next time.” Angela lectures, causing you to pout.

“Oh I see. Well, I guess I’ll be on my way then.” She turns around only to be stopped by someone holding her by her forearm.

“Now now Miss Oxton, no one bursts into my office just to say hi.” Angela tuts. Lena started to look around for a way to get out. “Lena, what did you really come for?” Angela motions her to sit in an extra chair next to the door, meant for people who were there for moral support or because they were the cause for an injury and needed to be scolded. That being said, the chair is usually meant for Reinhardt since he loves to swing some of the smaller agents around like a Dad would with his toddler.

“I just, was worried about (Y/n) yeah?” Lena said as she sat.

“Then why did you look so angry?” Angela retorted. Lena started shifting uncomfortably in her seat, laughing nervously. Angela could only sigh.

“I know exactly what’s going on here. (Y/n) was explaining how much they like you and kept thinking you were just being friendly when you were obviously, at least in my perspective, making romantic advances.” She explains. A ‘huh?’ and a ‘what?’ came out of you and Lena as you made eye contact with each other.

Angela went into therapist mode as she made both you and Lena talk about your thoughts and feelings and, finally, come to a solution.

“I really like you (Y/n). I don’t know how you hadn’t figured it out!” Lena says.

“I really like you too Lena. I just, kept thinking that it’d be too good to be true if you like me back you know?” You admit. She shakes her head and hugs you, muttering about how silly you were.

“Ahem” Angela breaks up the moment, “Now that that’s out of the way, my patient here needs to get their bedrest.” Angela says.

Once she was finished saying what she had to say, she found that both her visitors had vanished in the blink of an eye. The doctor can only sigh in defeat.

Widowmaker

Being a new recruit meant you had to go through training for all possible fighting styles in order to evaluate what you’d be best at. Today was your day to evaluate how you’d do as a sniper. Unfortunately, no one told you that the person helping you out in this department would be a sexy French woman with a piercing gaze that could mesmerize you into a trance for days. No one told you that you would be her prey.

To be fair though, no one told her that you would be so clueless to her advances.

Here you were, shaking and anxious, holding up the rifle and looking through the scope at your target. You could hear her sultry voice chuckle behind you.

“Go on chèrie, shoot.” Her voice smooth as silk whispered behind you, causing a tingle to shoot up your neck. You positioned yourself to make sure you’d get the shot, held your breath to steady the reticle, and pulled the trigger and…

Nothing came out.

“Um? It’s supposed to shoot… right?” You lowered your weapon as you looked over your shoulder to look at the woman known as Widowmaker.

Her expression changed from amusement to curiosity. She walked over and plucked the rifle out of your hands to inspect it. She hums as she figures out what the problem is.

“This one is jammed. I’ll find a better one for you, my dear. You deserve only the best I have to offer.” She lightly brushes her finger under your under your chin and struts away.

You hold a hand to your chest and sigh. “Be still my beating heart.” You joked to yourself to slightly ease some of your tension.

Amelie, walking back with a smirk, was met with the image of Hanzo teaching you archery. Needless to say, her smirk faded away. She briskly walked over to you two and glared at Hanzo.

“You are intruding Lacroix.” Hanzo says simply, but Amelie refused to be brushed off so easily.

“Non, you are the one who is intruding.” She says sharply.

“I am showing them true skill, something you lack.”

“Archery is a primitive excuse for a weapon. Heh, primitive weapon for a primitive man.”

All you could do was stand and watch, trying not to do anything that might bring attention to yourself.

“I’m not seeing a lot of guidance going on here.” Ana enters the room to break up the argument.

“Merde…” Widowmaker rolls her eyes and Hanzo turns his attention to Ana stoically. “If none of you will teach them then I will.”

Amelie does something no one expected. She grabs you by the arm and runs away with you. It wasn’t as graceful and seductive as she wanted but it got them away from those two and she couldn’t be happier.

“What’s going on?” You asked cautiously.

“I want to have you to myself.” Amelie brushes her hand over your cheek

“Oh, um, thanks?” You didn’t really know how to respond and you were trying not to hyperventilate. She scoffs and pulls you into a kiss. Gentle, with a slight nibble from her. She pulls away and smiles at your flustered state.

“I hope you got the message chèrie.” She whispers in your ear.

“Y-yeah, loud and clear.” You manage to say. Suddenly, everything seemed to be even more interesting than they already were.

#35 from dialogue list for Bughead

#35 was quite a challenge, at first… I had no idea of how to make something so dramatic with those words, but I’m quite happy with the results! Thank you for sending me this, Anon!!

Title: A Moment of Despair
.
Summary: For the Dialogue List- number 35: “Go on, tell me. Tell me you don’t love me.” Jughead goes after his father, but FP is long gone by now. The boy is troubled and broken, and she’s the only one who can fix him.
.
A/N: Since we all seem to be trapped in this angst feeling after ep 10, why not writing some dark Bughead moments, right? This was supposed to have less than 1k words, but as always, I couldn’t hold back XD This is a failed prediction of chapter 11, and even if I know this is definitely not going to happen, I decided to write it down simply because I can. I hope you all enjoy it!

Also, thank you so SO much, @jeemyjamz and @confessionsof-riverdale ! You guys have no idea of how much you’ve helped me during this time my beta took a break XD This pic is for us!

The front door of the trailer was practically tossed aside by the teenager as he stormed inside, not minding whatever consequences his actions could bring upon him. His heart was beating faster, his lungs were demanding for air, and his hands were shaking uncontrollably, as his eyes gradually adjusted to the darkness that surrounded him.

“Dad! Are you in here!?”

A chilling breeze followed him as he searched the entire place, not leaving a single room forgotten. Memories were spread around the metallic, fragile walls of his father’s trailer home, staring at him with those familiar faces that were long gone from his life. They reminded him of how things used to be, and confronting his broken reality, Jughead’s heart beat even more anxiously with each passing moment. His feet made their way past the pile of junk and empty, beer bottles that created a trail of mess and destruction, which, in the end, ended up leading him to the worst possible scenario.

The trailer was empty. Empty of life and hope, and certainly empty of his father’s strong presence.

So it was true, he thought.

The scene his greenish-blue eyes were witnessing at that very moment just proved what he’d overheard from his friends earlier. His father had run away, attesting his guilt regarding Riverdale’s most shocking crime. He shot Jason Blossom in a cold-blooded act and fled from the town — labelling himself as a murderer, and leaving everything behind. Leaving his own son behind.

And just when he thought his father was getting his act together.

Realization hit him hard, and soon, tears started to pool around his eyes. Jughead was breaking down in a mix of anger, fear, and disappointment he wasn’t sure were directed towards his father or himself. He was mad at FP for shooting a kid, but most of all, Jughead was mad at himself for actually believing his father when he said he had nothing to do with Jason’s death. He lied to him about the murder and probably about everything else just so he could keep his own son away until he had everything ready to leave.

‘It must have felt incredible.’ Jughead thought, as his mind started to think back to all the successful lies his own father had told him. Lies which he believed whole-heartedly simply because they came from the man he loves. The man who raised him, for god’s sake!

“You bastard…”

“She was a real scholar of history—just curious about history, and obsessively read history—and understood how important it is who writes the history. And she knew it was up to her to define her husband’s legacy because he could no longer do that, and it had to be done quickly because there were dozens of other people ready to jump in and publish the first book about him, and she needed to be there to control it—and she did brilliantly.”

About Killing Stalking

Okay so I’m making this post because we have gotten a lot of people telling us that Tonight makes them think a lot of the manga Killing Stalking - and some people even wrongly assumed that we took a lot of inspiration out of it, when… Seriously. Just ask before assuming things because that’s not true. That’s kinda insulting actually, Sounfy came up with the story by herself and I helped her build around that, so just assuming that we read something and were like “lolol how about we do exactly the same so it makes us feel good about ourselves” is pretty much like spitting in our faces.

Before we started this comic, neither of us had even heard about Killing Stalking, and after a few people told us about it, I thought it would be good for me to read it to know what they were talking about. Now. I’m happy I did it instead of Sounfy, because she needs her eyes intact in order to draw, and after reading it, I had to bleach mine. Several times.

No, we do not intend on making Mo into a psychopath who wants to rape Cat after breaking both his legs because he makes him think of his mom whom he killed. Spoiler alert btw. But yay, that’s to say, both Sounfy and me found this manga pretty traumatizing and disgusting. xD

Now, if you did tell us that it made you think of it, please don’t feel attacked, it’s not our goal, we’re not mad at you at all. :3 But it’s simply that we heard it a lot of times now, and it’s beginning to sound like people are telling us that Tonight has nothing original and is just a pale copy of it, even if that’s not true and that’s not what you meant at all. So basically, the goal of this post is to say : thanks a lot for telling us, we looked at it, so now we know, no need to tell us about it again. :3

We just felt like this was an issue that needed to be addressed. Now back to the gays ! Yuu out /o/

Member - Hoseok x reader

Genre - Angst, Fluff, Implied smut

Word count - 8.5K

Summary - On the occasion of your best friends wedding and high school reunion, you happened to meet once again, one of the richest heirs of the country, famous fuckboy Jung Hoseok.

While the world saw him as a cocky arrogant person and you, as a confident, strong woman, only the two of you knew the scars that were hidden, and things you both were unable to fix.

Only the two of you could see right through each others facade.

But could you and Hoseok finally break the gyves holding you back? Or were you the ones who shackled each other in the first place?

The music was still blasting in the speakers when he reached out for his third drink on the night that was still young, holding hundreds of possibilities. Hoseok looked away from the crazy dancing crowd at the woman who was giving him company.

Her vision was fixed on the dance floor, a drink in her hand, while the other played with her hair that was in waves, draped over her shoulder. Hoseok couldn’t help but notice, among all the women who were here, how simple yet alluring she looked. She was fitted in a slightly shimmering black dress that was hugging all the curves of her body till her mid-thigh. Even with a turtleneck and sleeves that extended will her wrists, making her too covered for a cocktail party, she looked stunning, making it harder and harder for Hoseok to look away from her. She wasn’t drinking much though, not even attempting to mingle, and from his experience seeing different types of women in clubs all these years, Hoseok knew she was the kind who had to be physically dragged out of the house to party. He wondered what she liked. Books? Maybe drawings? She was doing some sketches when Hoseok had met her last night. Or maybe she liked adventure. Whatever it was Hoseok wanted to know and it surprised him as well.
