she's falling behind

i just love how calm touka chan is here and how kaneki is just watching her

This is my dog. She usually sits behind me all day as I doodle, curled around my bum, occasionally putting her long chin on the arm rest or wedging her snout between my thigh and the chair. She is an old pup, so she snores heavily, sighs a lot, and sometimes hiccups. I love her a lot and she makes me happy, so here is my sharing happy thing of the day.

Wanda: Vision, is that your hand on my ass?

Vision: It was an accident.

Wanda: Vision, your hand’s still on my ass.

Vision:

Vision: It’s still an accident

Sakura Haruno - From a Girl to a Legendary Kunoichi.

Sakura’s growth from a girl who is “more interested in love than ninjutsu”, to one of the world’s most renowned Kunoichi, was quite remarkable.

The catalyst for this growth, as was the case for a lot of her development, were Sasuke’s words. They were harsh, but necessary, as it made her realise that she was becoming a hindrance to her team:

Those words would resonate in her mind until the Forest of Death, where she was stuck between a rock and a hard place:

And once she had finally reached her breaking point, and could no longer tolerate being the one to always get in the way, she decided to let go of her naive desire to look more appealing for Sasuke, and cut her hair. This symbolized the start of her blossoming into something special:

At this point, even though she knew she probably couldn’t defeat the enemies before her, she was at least going to go down fighting to protect those dear to her; She had finally found her resolve as a kunoichi.

And she even opted to sacrifice her body by purposely getting hit by shurikens and kunais instead of substituting, in order to land a surprise attack on her opponent, demonstrating her physical toughness as well:

The idea was reckless, but effective, and it paid huge dividends:

Now although she was eventually subdued, as she had expected, she could at least pride herself with the fact that she had fought her hardest to protect her friends instead of doing nothing. This was a huge turning point for her.


Later on during Sasuke’s confrontation with Gaara, Sakura once again illustrated how much she had grown as a person. In contrast to what had transpired in the Forest of Death where she had been absolutely petrified in fear of Orochimaru, when she saw Gaara heading to kill Sasuke, she put her life on the line to protect him, with no ounce of hesitation whatsoever:

I can only imagine what was going through Sakura’s head when she saw Gaara flying towards Sasuke, with the intent to kill:

So she got in the way, and was literally staring death in the face, but she didn’t move an inch. Not because she was afraid, but because her love for Sasuke was that powerful. It wasn’t a crush anymore, it was love, born from the desire to ease his internal suffering which at that point, only she was aware of.


After Naruto had come back unsuccessful in retrieving Sasuke, Sakura decided that simply putting her body/life on the line to protect her comrades was no longer enough; she needed the ability to actively fight and do things on her own terms, so that she could sufficiently aid Naruto in saving their friend: 

Thus, she turned to Tsunade in order to train and cultivate her skills:

Therefore, much like Naruto with Jiraiya and Sasuke with Orochimaru, Sakura set herself on the path of becoming part of the next generation of Sannin:


Tsunade taught Sakura the fundamentals of extremely precise chakra control, and as Kakashi and Naruto learned, that training wasn’t for the sole purpose of teaching Sakura medical ninjustu:

Sakura had gained the extreme levels of chakra control necessary to amplify her strength to monstrous levels:  

And Kakashi immediately saw that Sakura was a star in the making; to have come such a long way in a relatively short amount of time, he knew that at this rate, she’d probably surpass Tsunade some day.


And then came her unlocking of the Byakugou Seal; the moment when her true potential had finally been awakened, and the chakra that she had been amassing for all that time was at last ready to be put to use. This time however, she wouldn’t just be healing from the sidelines, she’d be on the front lines, standing side by side and on equal terms with her team mates: 

And she subsequently demonstrated to the entire allied shinobi forces what she was truly capable of, and every one of them were left in shock and awe (apart from Sasuke of course): 

Her display of strength was so impressive that even Hashirama Senju, who was touted as “The God of Shinobi”, acknowledged her abilities as possibly greater than Tsunade’s:

Shortly afterwards, the next generation of Sannin were truly born, as Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura recreated the “Three-Way Deadlock” summoning, with Sasuke’s Aoda and Naruto’s Gamakichi replacing Manda and Gamabunta respectively. Katsuyu needed no replacement:

They each subsequently demonstrated their prowess with their summonings, showing that it wasn’t just a case of simply being capable of summoning them; they all knew how to proficiently use them as well:

And Sakura wasn’t about to fall behind; she knew the task at hand and set about doing it with great efficiency:

It’s such a shame that a large portion of the fandom to this day, still fail to realise what Shizune was talking about here: Sakura’s growth, both emotionally and physically, was there for all to see. She is indeed a “helluva girl” :P


And several years in the future, even during times of peace, she most certainly hadn’t lost her senses for combat, as Shin found out the hard way that there were severe consequences for laying hands on her husband and daughter: 

And Sasuke, even though he hid it most of the time, had always seen her potential. He had probably remembered Sakura’s words when they were reunited on the battlefield during the war:

And at this point, he couldn’t have agreed more. No one believes in Sakura more than Sasuke:

And with good reason; Thanks in large part to his words, she had developed from a girl who cowered and cried in the face of adversity:

To a world renowned Kunoichi who doesn’t take shit from anyone:

And people say that she lacked development! :D

honestly, i don’t think we appreciate enough that ron was forced to go an entire year without being able to practically try out almost any of the magic he was learning because of his snapped wand. like he still did pretty well in school overall and didn’t suffer any real lasting set-backs from all the time he missed. that’s pretty freaking impressive.

someone scream about this music video and reylo with me, i love it so much, its not as much that the people look like them or anything its more the symbolism and all that, just arghh, pls watch it, if anything its really beautiful 

au where kagura actually takes kagome up on her offer to stay w the inugang and somehow doesn’t get killed by naraku

highlights:

  • kagura and sango not hitting it off AT A L L and constantly making snide comments at each other, leading to a serious fight followed by kagura admitting to helping kohaku when she could and sango gradually letting her defenses down
  • kagome mediating between sango and kagura when they get too heated
  • kagura SAVING SANGO IN A FIGHT but kagura denying wanting to save her and sango initially refusing to thank her but feeling guilty and thanking her anyways
  • kagome convincing kagura to fan her off on an especially hot day, the others extremely on edge the whole time
  • kagura adjusting to being on the ground and walking more and freedom to do what she wants when they’re relaxing
  • kagura smiling at the gang’s banter
  • kagome making a big deal out of said smile and kagura getting flustered, then still smiling when she falls back behind everyone else so no one can see
  • kagura fighting extra hard when kohaku is at stake, and taking on the role of his wine aunt when they get him back
  • mad one sided tension whenever sesshomaru shows up (and u know kagome picks up on it immediately)

Hi, help me I watch Woman Wonder and my friend says that is biphobic (???) w these arguments: "there is no talk of about love w women on the island and everything Diana knows about sex is bc she has read it in a book " "she only beats the bad guy bc she sees the boy dies so she doesn't care about war only about him " "censored her bisexuality w women and racialized women are the ones who take the worst blows" I'm not good w words help me to counterargument bc we have seen two different movies.

Oh boy…. Alright so as requested, I come bearing counter arguments. 

(And by that I mean, mostly the amazing @kara-danvers-lena-luthor comes bearing them. This is mostly her with commentary and backup arguments from me because like 95% of this is her pure genius and I love her). Ahem! So tell your friend to pull up a chair.

1) “There’s no talk about love with women on the island and everything Diana knows about sex is because she has read it in a book.” 

Okay, but there’s no talk about hetero sex either. Even though it’s IMPLIED that Diana slept with Steve, they never EXPLICITLY talk about it. Also, which is more important to the story of Diana becoming the GREATEST WARRIOR of all times? Showing her growing up and training? Or showing her growing up and sleeping with women? I guess the answer is obvious, don’t you think?

Diana’s sexuality was not the focus of the film. Why would it be? Love and sex were not the elements that made these incredible women who they are. And just as it is implied that she slept with Steve, it can be just as easily implied that she and/or the Amazons were sexually involved with women. (More on this in a bit).

2) “She only beats the bad guy because she sees Steve dying.” 

Hon, sweetheart, pal, buddy… If your friend thinks that, they truly don’t know WW. Diana, in the comics, literally blinded herself to defeat Medusa. Do you really think she would have stopped fighting Ares? The entire movie is about Diana completing the Amazon’s mission, which is defeating Ares! Believe me, even if Steve hadn’t died, she would have found a way to defeat him. Losing Steve just gave her an extra push to finish him faster.

I argued in a previous post against the outlandish notion that Steve is the singular hero of this film. He helped save the day, she saved the world. It was Diana’s fight and strong faith in humanity that helped contribute to her victory over Ares. In her fight, she never gave up, she had a moment where some would say that hope seemed lost, but she searched within herself and fought for what she believed in. She didn’t just defeat Ares with her brute strength, just as she didn’t defeat him because the man she loved died. Ares attempted to use that against her – her anger and heartbreak. He almost succeeded but in the end she was superior because of how she was able to rise above that. Defeating him because she was angry (which was not the case) would have served your friend’s argument, but that’s simply not what happened. Next.

3) “Censored her bisexuality.” 

First of all, we need to stop with this notion that in order for us to believe someone is bisexual their dating history has to be 50% women, 50% men! (THIS!!!). Secondly, Diana herself says that men are unnecessary for pleasure! What more does your friend want?? But yes, they had to be careful, because there was a lot riding on this project: the first solo female superhero movie, the first superhero movie directed by a woman, first movie directed by a woman with over $100 million budget… so they needed to make bank!!! They needed to make sure they wouldn’t anger bigoted people, and they did an wonderful job, okay? They made it clear that Diana knows women give each other pleasure, and that she also can fall for men. It’s not erasure, it’s called playing it smart!

I’m just going to throw in the idea of the double standard here, because with arguments that get thrown around on here, we would have seen it. So stay with me. Yes, we would all love to see a wlw Wonder Woman in the movies. And it’s not too late! Who knows, maybe we will! But let’s be real here, if they threw in something really quickly about Diana actually being with a woman, or if she were in a relationship with a woman before leaving Themyscira, that would have received backlash as well. Because it would have been quick and probably only implied in the background of everything else going on. If executed poorly, it could have contributed to the stigma and one of the primary stereotypes against bisexual people! She’s in love with a woman, she meets Steve, has her canon interactions with him, leaves Themyscira (and thus the woman she loves) behind and falls in love with Steve in the short amount of time they have together? Fact: There would have been complaints there too. Sadly, you can’t satisfy all the people, all the time. 

4) “Women of color are the ones who take the worst blows.” 

What???? I’m sorry, but from all your friend’s arguments, this point is the most ridiculous one to me… Seriously, take your friend to the movie again. After the battle at the beach, an Amazon suggests killing Steve to be done with it, but it’s a black Amazon who is the voice of reason and tells the Queen herself that they should listen to what he has to say. 

A black Amazon, Artemis, is portrayed as the strongest among them. She’s the one who hits Diana in the face during Diana’s last training. She’s the one that you see in the first scene of the Amazon’s training shaking off her attackers like they’re nothing. That’s the point! She’s a brick wall! The one to beat. And that isn’t racist. Honey that’s goals. As a black woman I was proud to see that bit! (Not to mention, Artemis was white in her original comic book appearances. She was portrayed as a black woman, I believe in later editions and in a 2009 film. The issue would have been making Artemis the pony-tailed redhead we see originally, but instead we got the amazing Ann Wolfe. So~)

Also after they listen to Steve, and Diana asks her mom to send the Amazons back with him, one of them asks, “What are you talking about, child?” To which Diana replies, “Forgive me, Senator” and guess what? That Amazon is black as well, meaning that they hold high ranks in their society. So I really don’t know what your friend is going on about.

This is a good segue to return to the issue of erasing the Amazon’s sexuality and still tying it in with issues of race. Fun little fact that I learned today:

Why is this important? Who is Phillipus? 

☝☝She is☝☝

Queen Hippolyta and Phillipus are lovers in the comics. Anyone that knew that probably would have been looking for it after finding out Phillipus was in the film. I know I would have been if I knew this sooner. Now it is true, that it is not blatantly obvious that the two are involved in the film. But complete erasure would have been ignoring Phillipus altogether. Instead, they had her, she was STILL a WOC, and in a position that would have more or less kept her at Hippolyta’s side. See where I’m taking this?

So anyway, woc were not just there to take the heavy hits. They show a woman of color with brute strength, they show a woman of color being the voice of reason, they show a woman of color in a high ranking position. It was multifaceted.

So there it is. Anything else? Did we help? 😃

TL;DR: NO. Literally no to everything your friend said. Just… no. kbye

southsidesserpentroyalty  asked:

your blog is so wonderful, and your so good at writting and i was wondering if you could an agnsty fic where Betty is going through domestic abuse at home (any kind will do) and jughead figures out somehow and gets angry and protective 💙💛

I’ll give it a try!
****

The pain was still there, throbbing and aching, her muscles tense as she shifted her heavy schoolbag onto her shoulders. It wasn’t broken, she was familiar with what a broken collarbone felt like and this was nothing more than a pulled muscle. Distinct memories flashed through Betty’s mind, her father flinging her across the room, a Pop and then blinding pain, waking up to a bruised cheek and dislocated shoulder.

“Are you sure you’re okay? Do you want me to hold your bag for you, I know you said you hurt it in cheerleading but whenever I pull a muscle in football I can hardly lift my duffle.” Archie spoke from her right, his hands ready to take the heavy book bag from her hands.

With a delicate shake of her head, Betty smiled weakly at the pain where her fathers ring had landed solidly on her cheek bone.

“I’m okay, I just have to walk it off.” She smiled gratefully.

They were on their way to pops, Veronica and Kevin were waiting for them but Betty had stayed late to practice her routine and Archie had after school practice. because of her injuries these last few weeks she was falling behind and Cheryl was not happy about it. She didn’t even want to think of what the redheaded she monster would say if she saw the bruising lining Betty’s collar bone.

Archie had just finished telling her all about his fathers progress when they arrived at Pops.

“That’s so great Arch.” Betty placed a reassuring hand to his shoulder and he beamed down at his best friend. Suddenly a familiar rumble broke Betty out of her and Archie’s personal bubble.
She knew that voice, she could point it out in even in the most crowded of rooms.

Jughead Jones, Betty’s ex boyfriend and Archie’s ex best friend, seated at the far back booth, Toni Topaz on his left and a large group of Serpents surrounding him.

“We can leave, we can get pizza and hang out in the basement. You don’t have to do this.” Archie clutched Betty’s arm. It was too late, sea blue eyes had already met meadow green and Betty was never one to back down from a challenge. Making direct eye contact with the newly changed young Serpent who she loved desperately, Betty looped her arm through Archie’s wincing slightly.

“It’s okay. I’m in desperate need of a milkshake.”

Veronica was standing by the time they made it to the booth
“Do you want me to kick her ass. I will, you know I will.”

Betty smiled weakly at the way Veronica was glaring at the pink haired girl. In actuality none of this was Toni’s fault, sure she had played a minor role in the demise of their relationship but she wasn’t the main reason.

“I love you Jughead! I’m trying so hard to accept all of this, your new life, your new family but it’s too hard!”

“Don’t you get it?! I don’t want you to accept it, this is where I belong! These are my people, they know me! They’re like me. I can’t deal with living two lives!”

“Then I’ll leave! I’ll go if that’s what you want!”

She had been bluffing, desperately begging for him to fight for her, it hadn’t worked out that way however

“Maybe thats for the best. Goodbye Betty.”

Maybe he had never loved her, maybe it was just words. He had Toni now and if she made him happy than Betty was happy. Well.. she could present to be happy.

“Earth to Betty, you’re milkshake is melting.” Kevin tugged gently on her sleeve, the light pink sweater riding up and revealing the fingershaped bruises. Kevin dropped her hand like it was on fire

“What are those?! Betty what..”

“It’s nothing!” The beautiful blonde quickly interjected, tugging her sleeves down. Perhaps she had spoken a bit too loudly, suddenly she felt eyes on her, looking up she saw Jughead staring intently at the table.

“Nothing?! Those are bruises B! And they’re shaped like hand prints… is that why you’ve got all of that makeup on your face..” Veronica reached over the tables, her napkin quickly swiping some of the foundation away from underneath her eye and revealing the purple and yellow bruise forming quickly, tears filled the raven haired girls eyes as she gasped, Archie stood abruptly, his knuckles clenching the side of the booth

“Someone’s beating on you!” He nearly screamed it, Betty gripped her bookbag tighter to her chest “and your shoulder! It’s not from cheerleading! Someone’s hurting you?! Who is it?!” Archie’s words were laced in venom, spiking Betty’s anxiety.

“It’s nothing! Leave it alone. I’ve gotta go. I… I have too…” Betty ran from the diner, avoiding the gazes and barely registering her friends calling after her.

She ran until her knees buckled and her shoes scuffed the grassy area, she was at the park when she finally collapsed. They all knew. Everyone knew. He was going to kill her, her father was going to kill her. Pulling her knees to her chest she buried her head in her legs, resting against the oak tree.
Moments later a figured dropped beside her.

“Archie, please. Just drop it okay.”


“A name. Give me a name. I’ll end him right now.”

Betty’s eyes snapped open, it wasn’t her redheaded best friend sitting beside her, but instead the dark haired boy she was in love with, the boy who had broken her heart.

“Leave me alone, Jughead.”

In a very uncharacteristic snort Jughead shifted even closer to her.

“No. absolutely not. I’m not all the way sane but I’m not crazy.”

Betty pulled her bag from the ground moving to stand up

“Fine. I’ll leave then.”

Jughead was faster, placing his hands softly on her shoulders and nudging her down, his foot kicking her backpack out of her reach.

“Hey!” Betty argued

Suddenly Jughead was nose to nose with Betty, there was something so deep and guttural in his eyes it physically made Betty shutter when his hands came up to stroke the deep bruise on her cheek

“Please.” He whispered “please tell me who’s doing this to you. Let me end this. I can’t..” the shaky boy choked “I can’t let this happen. I can’t believe I didn’t see this.”

Betty closed her eyes, tears pouring from underneath her long dark lashes
“You didn’t see me at all. You have a new family. A new life. Why do you even care?”

Jughead shook his head quickly dropping his forehead to hers

“You. You are my life Betty Cooper. I watch you everyday. I see you leaving school and I make sure you make it home okay. I’m at Pops just to see you…”

Betty cut him off
“Don’t kid yourself, you’re at Pops to be with your girlfriend.”

Jughead gently brought his hands up to cup Betty’s cheeks gently

“Toni is not my girlfriend, she’s a friend. I love you Betty Cooper. That’s how it is and that’s how it will always be. I watched you go home, I made sure you made it home okay, how could I have missed it, it’s no one in school. Archie would have known, and its…” suddenly a lightbulb went off in Jugheads mind, Betty hung her head in shame.

“It’s okay Juggie. He’s working on it, he drank a lot last night and he was angry. Mom left us, she took Polly. He’s.. he’s just angry.” She protested, her voice so defeated and weak it didn’t even sound like her own.

“You’re staying with me.” Jughead dug deep in his pockets handing Betty the keychain with the keys to his fathers trailer. “I’ll keep you safe, until we can figure this out, I need you near me. I.. I need you. I’ve failed enough. Please Betty. Let me do this.”

Jughead stared team into Jugheads eyes, his hands were bunched into fists as he plead with her.

Betty nodded slowly
“Okay.” She whispered

Jughead dropped a slow kiss to her forehead, shoulders stiffening when she flinched away.

He had hurt her, he was trying to protect her but in the end he had hurt her and things weren’t okay, they needed work, but he was willing to work harder than humanly possible if it meant getting Betty Cooper back.


When he came home that night, fists bloody and lip busted he found her sleeping on the couch, hotdog at her feet

Yeah, it was way more than worth it.

Twisted ankle - kidge

In her defense, Pidge is already at a disadvantage here. She’s quick in battle, sure–agile. But in a flat out sprint?

Well, she has short legs, and there’s not a damn thing she can do about that.

So when they’re fleeing from a battle that’s gotten out of hand–”regrouping,” Shiro calls it–she naturally falls a little behind. It happens when your teammates are all six goddamn feet tall.

She doesn’t dare glance backward, though she can hear the galra giving chase, unnervingly close. She doesn’t dare risk it. Instead she runs harder, pushing herself beyond her limits to try and catch up with the rest of her team.

She doesn’t trip–she doesn’t even take an ill-advised leap or step in a hole or some other excuse. She just lands badly one stride and then she’s hobbling, yelling as pain shoots through her ankle.

“Pidge!” she hears someone shout.

Shit. She’s never gonna catch up now. She keeps running as best she can, eyes glued to the ground ahead of her. 

And jumps when a blast hits the ground just next to her. They’re catching up, and she’s fucked.

Well, might as well go down fighting, right? She reaches for her bayard.

“Hunk, Lance!” Keith’s shout rings out ahead of her. “Cover us!”

“You got it!” Lance shouts back. As Pidge slows to turn and fight, she hears footsteps–ahead of her this time.

She looks up just before Keith all but collides with her. He’s turning and hiking her arms up over his shoulders before she’s even processed that he came back for her.

“What–”

“Jump!” he hisses, as the blue-white bolts of energy from Lance and Hunk’s bayards shoot by them. She panics–no way, she is not letting Keith die here with her. She tries to tug her arms back.

“Leave me!” she shouts in his ear.

“No!” he shouts back, sounding so offended it shocks her into stopping her resistance. He lets go of her arms and reaches back for her knees instead, and heaves her up onto his back himself. And then they’re off.

“Keith,” she starts.

“I’m not leaving you,” he pants. “Never.”

She doesn’t know how to answer that. Somehow it feels like a deeper promise than it sounds. So she wraps her arms tighter around his shoulders, and her knees at his hips, and decides if they make it out of this alive she’s gonna make sure he knows she’s not gonna leave him, either. Not if she can help it.

anonymous asked:

GIVE REASONS WHY DO U SHIP TODOMOMO

I HAVE SO MANY REASONS!

First, their dynamic with each other.

Their relationship thus far in canon is mostly centered around Momo, and her feelings of inadequacy compared to Todoroki. She assumed at the start of the series, that they should be around the same level since they both got in via recommendation. But, after the sports festival where she lost in an instant and didn’t even have time to show off her quirk, in contrast to Todoroki who got second, She starts to feel that she is below Todoroki, and in a lot of ways.

In Momo’s mind- Todoroki= Amazing hero, whereas she is average, and not progressing at the impressive rate that recommended students should (in her mind) be.

Her self-esteem is lowered a little more, when he got so many nominations for work place experience, while she barely got any. (this is minor, but I still think important to note, that she is the one shown telling him the number of nominations he got is impressive. I think this is Horikoshi’s way of giving us readers/viewers hints to build up what their relationship will be in the future (which in canon so far is close classmates, but I think it has potential to grow into something romantic when they are older))

She feels that she is falling behind Todoroki, and letting the people around her down by not being as good as she should be. We know of course, that she is an amazing hero, and will continue to grow to be an astounding hero just as good as Todoroki in battles, but she needs to know that herself.

Aizawa recognizes this and put her and Todoroki together in the final exam because he’s counting on Todoroki to help her, because he’s the center of most of Momo’s self-doubts, and Aizawa knows Todoroki is one of the only people that can help her regain some self-esteem. (this is also a showcase of how great of a teacher Aizawa really is, and how his goal is to help ALL his students become amazing heroes)

We know that Todoroki voted for Momo, and he views her as an intelligent and trustworthy person, but he has never expressed it because-and this is just my theory, we don’t know what Todoroki’s thoughts are so can only guess- but he has never expressed his views of her because he assumes she already knows it. Why would someone as smart as her need him to tell her she’s smart when there’s probably a lot of people telling her already?

He notices she looks like she wants to say something about his plan against Aizawa, but it doesn’t register for him that he should have asked her for her opinion until Aizawa points it out to him, because he thought she would have said something. And, let’s be real, Todoroki’s social skills aren’t that great so he might just have not thought about it, that’s an option too lmao. 

(this is the only translation I could find to add, and it’s not the official one so some words are mistranslated I’m sure, but I do know what is officially said in this scene and the image is just for visual aid)

Aizawa points out, that Todoroki should have given more thought to talking with Momo, and Todoroki thinks it through and realizes he should have. (It’s one of the strong points of Todoroki’s character, I think, is that he learns from his mistakes and accepts them) When Momo comes back, Todoroki immediately asks her for her plan, and admits that he should have asked for her opinion.

He then admits, one of the biggest things Momo needed to hear, and the words that kicked of this ship: He voted for her as class president, because he thinks she’s good at analyzing and coming up with plans.

That’s huge for Momo to hear! Todoroki, the person that she has been comparing herself to this entire time, considers her to better at this than he is!

This helps Momo overcome her self-esteem issues, once her plan takes down Aizawa and get them to pass the exam.

She needed to hear Todoroki say what a lot of people have said for sure, because he’s the one she’s been comparing herself to! She admires Todoroki a lot, and so this was having one of the people she admires most, tell her that after knowing her for only one day, he thought she was good enough to vote for. 

Their dynamic is one of across the board admiration and recognization of strong points and building each other up. The Final Exam was such a big moment for both of these characters, and I see so much potential in their dynamic building further as the series progresses, and for it to become romantic!

I also hope, that in the future we’ll get to see more of Todoroki’s side, because it is mostly from Momo’s perspective so far and I want to see what Todoroki thinks!!

*The first points rather long, so I’ll keep the next couple short because I’m tired lol*

Second, I love their personalities together!

Momo’s enthusiastic but level headed, and Todoroki is serious yet not above everyone else’s shenanigans, and gosh I just love their personalities together so much I can’t describe it! Read any fanfiction and you’ll see how fun their personalities are together!! (seriously if you haven’t go read their fanfics on AO3 there are so many good ones! Or go follow @todomomo-fanfiction for fanfiction links!)

Third, their potential is so intriguing!

Boku No Hero Academia is far from being over and I just can’t wait to see how these two will develop! Even if they don’t get together officially, I do hope we at least see them become friends and interact more as the series progresses!

And that’s all I can think of at the moment! There is a ton of small reasons why I ship them, but these are the 3 main big ones! Hope this answers your question, this was super fun to write! :)

Not a “fuck customer” but a “fuck coworker” and by coworker, I mean someone on literally their second day while still training.
She came in yesterday looking stoned as all hell. Now I don’t care if someone smokes. Toke up all you want. But for the love of God, if you’re going to do it, can you at the very least make sure you’re sober enough to function? Not only did she drop two boxes filled with a dozen donuts, she almost somehow managed to squeeze 14 in a dozen box. She came in around 7 am and by 10:30 she was already complaining to my manager about when she would be able to leave. “I just have REEEEAAAALLLLYYY important stuff to do.” Okay? But during the second interview you and the manager usually agree on what day you can start?
Now today was a disaster. Like yesterday, she stood around as everyone is running back and forth trying to keep up with the rush. She took no initiative in doing anything and was in the way 90% of the time. My manager told her to help the woman doing front counter. That lasted five minutes. She comes to the drive thru as my manager is making the drinks and says that she doesn’t wanna be up front because “she keeps yelling at me.” And “I don’t know what I’m doing.” 1) she is not yelling at you. She is trying to train you while take orders while everyone is trying to get in and out so they can get to work on time. 2) which is why you’re upfront. Because you CANNOT keep up in drive thru.
So my manager gives her the easiest task in the entire store. Fill the cups with coffee. Simple, right? Naw. I wouldn’t be typing this is that worked. She was told to stay in one place. Just fill the cups with the right coffee. Doesn’t listen. Manager steps away to grab a turbo shot and this girl proceeds to make the next coffee. Spills MILK AND SUGAR AND ICE EVERYWHERE. So not only does my manager have to remake a drink during a rush (if you’ve ever worked in FF, you know just how easy it is to fall behind) she has to take the time to clean it all up all while still somehow make all the drink orders.
In between taking an order and typing it in, I can hear bits and pieces of what my manager is saying to her. She asks her to leave and come back some other time when there isn’t a rush so she can be trained properly. Now I haven’t really heard this coworker speak long enough to really hear how she sounds, but I don’t think it’s normal to slur your words. The kicker in all of this is that she has apparently worked at a Dipping Donuts before. So not only does she technically have experience but somehow has no idea what she’s doing, she’s more than likely come to work High and possibly drunk. I don’t care what you do in your free time. You do you. But is it too much to ask that you don’t do these things while on the clock?

Today is Josh‘s and Tyler‘s first time attending the Grammy‘s. But that‘s just the beginning, who would‘ve guessed that those two dudes from Columbus Ohio are going to be nominated for five Grammys one day? The same guys, that write music, that consists of every genre you could think of, about things nobody wants to talk about. The duo representing this generation‘s local dreamers. 

The moment their feet touch the red carpet, both of them feel a rush of excitement and a hint of nervousness raging through their body. After getting some photos taken, the two are lead to an interviewer. The guy has the biggest grin plastered on his face and the most enthusiastic attitude he could pull off. 

“It‘s so nice to see you guys! Five Grammy nominees, how do you feel about that?“ the man shrieks and holds out his microphone for them to speak into. 

Just like usual, Tyler takes the lead and answers the question. Even though Josh has improved in public speaking, he‘s used to his best friend being the one in control so all he does is nodding his head in agreement. Suddenly, he recognises a familiar face in the corner of his eyes while listening to his bandmate talk and couldn’t help but quickly turns around, to see no one other than (Y/F/N). The girl he has been and still is in love with. Doesn‘t matter how cliche it may sound, but the guy is hundred percent convinced that she‘s his one and true love.

“ all the days I spent without you
I can’t even remember them..”

hey y’all just a reminder canon can eat my entire fucking ass and my padmé has Serious and Awful scarring on her back from the nexu in the petranaki arena because she refused to waste time in a bacta tank when a war had literally just started. the three scars cover almost her entire back from right shoulder to left hip and one also spans the upper back part of her right bicep. the nexu tore through a muscle and she spent longer than she would like having to get that repaired but the scar is still there, though significantly faded in comparison to the ones on her back. she is also extremely self conscious about them and never wears backless articles of clothing anymore. ( looking at you, clone wars. )

Any advice for a stressed out upcoming junior who feels like she's falling behind all of her friends achievement wise, and is terrified of college apps and standardized testing

This is so late… I hope you’ve enjoyed your first quarter as a junior lol. It’s terrible but it’s only going to get worse!

Here is some stuff I wish I’d know when I was your age (which was… A year ago lmao):

  • If you can afford it, take a standardized test (SAT or ACT; I only took the SAT) early in the year. I’ll admit, going into junior year I panicked about the tests, and I forced myself into this state of detached chill that was good for nobody. If you confront your fear about the tests early on, I think it would actually be helpful, and here’s why:
    • If you take the test in November/December, you’re obviously going to be underprepared. It’s going to suck. You might not know all the math, etc. But like… It’s done. And once you leave the testing center, you kind of realize that everything you built up in your head was honestly… Nothing. (This is assuming you don’t have really bad test anxiety though.)
    • So, you’ve taken the test. You were pushed for time, you panicked at almost every section, and overall you feel like you did terribly. But now you KNOW what the test is like; you know the formatting way better than any prep book could tell you, you KNOW what 55 minutes feels like, and you know how fast you work.
    • When you get your test results, the score doesn’t matter. What matters is what you got wrong on the english and math parts. The SAT is divided into types of math, blah blah blah, read the score breakdown to get a good sense of where you sucked and where you were okay. And build upon that! Now you have MONTHS to prepare for the next SAT in May/June.
  • So yeah. Take standardized tests early. It gets the anxiety out of the way, it helps you learn to better pace yourself, it tells you what you need to study more, and now you have months to prepare for the next one. It was like $75 down the drain though, so again, this option isn’t necessarily for everyone.
  • Most colleges don’t give a shit about subject tests lmao. Like, I think maybe ONE college I’m applying to requires one or more subject tests, and it’s an Ivy League school. Everyone else has wised up and realized that standardized testing is actually a terrible way to judge a student’s potential. If you KNOW there’s a college you want to apply to that will require a subject test, do it at the end of the year if you’re taking that course now. I took biology sophomore year but took the SAT biology subject test junior year, and I think I did it in the fall when I had no finals to stress about.
  • One thing I’ve realized is that like… Comparing yourself achievements wise to everyone around you means jackshit. People are born with different advantages, privileges, and other bonuses. From the get-go they were more likely/better suited to aim for x award. I’ve stopped caring about the fact that some people in my school won States for x sport because, it doesn’t apply to me. Your value isn’t determined by the number of trophies behind it.
    • If you have the energy, do clubs. Even just for a few months. Every club I joined I did with the mindset that I was going to earn a leadership position, which I did. Colleges will be impressed by your three-mile long club list, but they’ll care more if you’re the president of a club. That shows a real commitment and also reflects upon your abilities to lead.
  • If you hate your peers just start your own club, there’s probably some English teacher willing to sign off on whatever idea you can bullshit. Hang out with friends, maybe make an effort to do something, and call yourself the president. Like?? It’s high school, man. Everyone is tired.
  • DO YOUR COLLEGE APPS DURING THE SUMMER I’M NOT JOKING.
  • Don’t avoid doing something because you’re scared. Then you get nothing done and you feel terrible.
  • If you care about college, then yeah your grades matter. But like?? You’re a kid. Have fun. Goof off with your friends. Work if you want to save money. If you devote yourself to nothing but your studies, you won’t develop as a person.
  • Learn to ask for help. If you get a shitty test grade, don’t beat yourself up about it. Go to the teacher, tell them what you don’t understand, and build upon it. Show some initiative. In college, you’re on your own unless you seek out assistance.
  • Time management is so goddamn crucial to balancing a hellish life, I’m not joking. Buy a planner or some shit, it’ll help.
  • Remember to eat for god’s sake. And drink water as well.
  • Bring Advil/Tylenol to school, you or someone else is going to need it. Also gum, gum is super important.

Good luck anon <3
