to the people living with their abusers who aren’t able enough to get out, who are so traumatized that they can’t function, i hear you. you’re not worthless, you’re not weak or deserving of punishment. even if you’re an adult.
when you’re traumatized and you live with the person (or people) who abuse you, that fear doesn’t always turn to active motivation to escape. sometimes being retraumatized sucks away our ability to function because we’re using all our energy focusing on the immediate threat. why would you have extra room to think about a job or school when you’re in danger? your brain is trying to protect you.
please remember that you’re not failing. you’re coping with an overwhelming situation, and sometimes that’s the best you can do.
Kara: How do you take your coffee? // Lena: I like my coffee as dark and bitter as my soul. // Kara: OK vanilla milkshake then
Lena Luthor Expectation: Never trust a Luthor. She’s shady. She’s used to doing horrible things. No doubt whatsoever that she will be evil. Probably plotting to stab us all in the back right now.
Lena Luthor Reality: Actual cinnamon roll puppy that just really wants a hug. Tough as nails but still really sensitive and vulnerable. Gets fidgety and tongue-tied around Kara Danvers. Fills her platonic bezzie mate’s office with flowers. Probably sleeps with her old teddy.
You know, I always thought that my tumblr would always be filled with Helena Bonham Carter and Harry Potter but instead it's filled with Supercorp and Katie McGrath and its just funny how life takes that turn.
Haha funny how things happen, yeah? Katie has a tendency to take over literally everyone’s lives! I mean how can you not stan this angel!?
Not gonna lie, I totally used this as an excuse to post gifs of her adorable face. She is too good and too pure for this world and we don’t deserve her!
I've never been attracted to girls, but I think Katie McGrath is so hot! I've always thought myself as straight and someone told me when I asked that I still was "because she is an actor, it doesn't count", I've not been attracted to girls 'till now but if Katie asked me out I would say yes!!
NOW HEAR THIS
Katie McGrath is a magical goddess that possesses the mystical ability to make everyone that is not necessarily interested in women question their sexuality. Makes sense in my brain.
I honestly haven’t met a single person in this fandom that would turn her down, anon. So if you are here for Katie thirst and loving appreciation, you have come to the right place, my love. 😘
It had been a couple weeks since you
walked out on Tyler. You were getting
along ok, at least as ok as someone who’s love of their life had just cheated
on them should be doing. You had your
moments where you just broke down and cried, those were mostly at three in the
morning when Tyler called you drunk and begging you to take him back, and the
nights you didn’t answer- the voicemails would be even worse.
like the amazing friend he is promised he would keep Tyler out of trouble as
best as he could but you know yourself how much of a handful he could be. Jamie had brought the rest of your things
back to your apartment which you were extremely thankful for, it would have
been hell if you had to go back and relive your relationship with Tyler. Jamie told you that Tyler didn’t move when he
was getting your stuff, he was just sitting on the couch staring blankly at the
tv that wasn’t even turned on. You broke
down crying and Jamie held you and then tucked you in bed and truth be told you
didn’t have very much motivation to move.
game had drastically changed, anyone with eyes could see the difference between
his playing when the two of you were together and now. You couldn’t deny the pang of guilt you felt
for this even knowing that Tyler isn’t your responsibility and neither is his
playing ability. You knew he was
drinking more and going out a lot more than usual, Jamie had told you, and once
again there was a pang of guilt.
had been a particularly good day so you decided to go out to the café not far
from your apartment to read a book and also get some social interaction-
something you had been lacking. You had
invited Jamie along be he declined which you didn’t mind, it would give you
time to think while you were moderately happy- something that hadn’t happened
in a while. You got your drink and sat
down at a cozy table toward the back, away from the door. Shortly after a man asked to sit down at you
table as there were none available near a plug for his laptop.
sorry” the man sitting across from you starts “I have to confess, I lied I
don’t need to charge my laptop, I saw you sitting here and I just wanted an
excuse to talk to such a beautiful lady.”
feel your cheeks heating up, flattered by his comment.
William, it’s a delight to meet you” he flashes you an award-winning smile.
“(y/n)” you smile back politely not
really interested in conversation.
“So, do you come here very often?”
Really the most used line in the book… like ever “that was stupid I’m sorry I
shouldn’t have said that.”
“Listen” you start off determined
to make a point “if this were any other time I might be interested in a
conversation but I’m just not right now, all I am interested in right now is my
book, so if you will excuse me I’m going to get back to it.”
“Well I could give you my number
you could send me a text when you’re done the book” he says completely ignoring
the point you were trying to make.
“Listen buddy” a new voice chimes
in, an all too familiar voice “I’m pretty sure the lady said she doesn’t want a
conversation so if get on your way before I make you.”
You scoff at Tyler’s assertiveness
and how quickly William gets his things together. Tyler probably wouldn’t do anything to the
guy, but then again you didn’t think Tyler would cheat on you either. Great here come the water works, so much for
having a good day. You’re interrupted
from your thoughts when Tyler takes a seat across from you where William was
sitting just seconds ago.
“What the hell do you think you’re
doing?” you ask him extremely annoyed “At least William had the decency to
ask.” You add the last bit in knowing it
would piss Tyler off.
“William” Tyler shakes his head “would
you have actually given that guy a chance (y/n)?”
“Yeah maybe I would have” you state
“He doesn’t seem like your type.”
“Oh really?” you ask with a dry
laugh “then what is my type Tyler? Men
that don’t care about me? Men that party
all the time? Men that cheat on me?”
Tyler’s features soften and you can
tell right away he’s been thinking about what he did. “(y/n) I’m sorry” he says simply. You weren’t expecting an apology Tyler is
always so stubborn.
“How did you even find out where I
“I went to your place and I figured
you just weren’t answering the door” he lets out a little chuckle “knowing you
weren’t even in there makes me feel a bit stupid but anyways. You weren’t answering so I came here because
you love it here and I wanted to be close to you.”
You can’t help it but your heart
swells just before the image of him kissing the perfect blonde crosses your
mind and once again tears come to your eyes.
You can’t stand the idea of letting him see you cry so you pick up your
things and walk out of the small café.
You know Tyler is right behind you because you can hear his footsteps.
“Is he the reason you aren’t
interested?” That is not Tyler. You turn
around and William is right behind you “personally, I don’t think he’s worth
“It doesn’t matter what the reason
is, I am just not interested in you” this boy cannot take a hint.
“Why the fuck are you here again?”
Tyler exclaims coming up to you and William.
“Why the fuck do you think it’s ok
too make a gorgeous girl cry?” William asks him getting up in Tyler’s
face. Knowing that it is a very bad
decision on William’s part to get that close to Tyler you squeeze in between
them, facing Tyler. He might have broken
your heart but you still trust him a hell of a lot more than a complete
“William, you don’t know me and I
don’t know you, I am not interested in you and what happens between me and
Tyler does not concern you one bit” you say steadily despite the burning stares
from both men.
“Yeah move along now buddy” Tyler
adds ushering him along.
Once William was surely gone you
start talking to Tyler “Ty, I don’t blame you I honestly should have seen it
coming you were out all the time partying and I mean she looked absolutely
perfect. It’s not ok that you did it but
you did and it’s kind of difficult to go back on it.”
“I was terrible to you (y/n)” Tyler
says taking your hand in his “and I want to talk to you about it because you
deserve so much more, so can we please go back to your apartment and talk?”
Probably against your better
judgement you let him hold your hand all the way on the ten-minute walk back to
your apartment and all the way up the elevator to your apartment door where
there is a basket with an assortment of things.
“I brought this for you to
apologize and you didn’t answer so I just left it” he says picking it up and
studying the contents “I-uh I got you some flowers, I thought they looked nice
and I remember when we went on our date to the flower garden you said you liked
them, and I got you some of the candy you really like and there’s a teddy bear
and I filled this jar up with everything I love about you and Jamie told me to
make a photo album of all my favorite pictures of us so that’s there too, but
just in case you don’t hate me any less there’s some matches in there.”
By the time Tyler finished rambling
you had opened the door and lead him inside your apartment. “Tyler, are you done?”
“Well no but if you want me stop I
will but I had a lot more to say” he said nervously.
“Should I get you some water then?”
you ask as a joke but when he nods you realize he’s serious when he says he
still has a lot to say. “Tyler, you just
need to tell me one thing, I don’t need the gifts or the long speeches just one
“Ok” he says confidently “one 100%
“Was she the only the girl?”
Without even think about it Tyler
confidently gets out a “yes.”
“Ok now a follow up question” you
pause not really sure if you want the answer “why?”
“Because I’m stupid and I didn’t
realize how amazing I had it when I had you.
(y/n) if you forgive me I promise I will never party without you.”
“That’s a pretty big promise
“Well, you’re worth the biggest
promises, because” he pauses “because I love you.”
You had never heard Tyler say those
words directed at you ever. So, to say
you’re a little bit shocked is an understatement.
“I know that you probably think I’m
just desperate now, which I am, but I really do mean it. It just took me a little while to
realize. (y/n) I love you so much it’s
crazy, I didn’t think I would ever be the guy to say that but here I am and I
don’t want to be any other guy.”
“Tyler…” you say quietly cutting
“(y/n) please let me finish, if you
give me a second chance I swear to you I won’t blow it, I promise you I won’t
“Tyler, what am I supposed to say
“That you’ll give me a second
chance?” he says hopeful “and that you love me too would be nice.”
“Tyler, I do love you” you say and
a goofy smile appears on his face “things have to change though.”
“Things will change (y/n)” he
smiles taking a step closer to you, wrapping his arms around you and giving a
kiss to your forehead “Let’s go out to dinner?”
“Ok, sure” you smile up at him “can
we get pizza?”
