um hi so i’m (just under) 50 away from 2k and it’d be ya know kinda cool if i could get there sometime (soon)… and yeap that’s my story (thanks for listening reading) (*awkwardly shuffles off stage ur screen*)
the thing about emma swan is that although i tag her as ‘perfect’ a lot - #ur so perfect #perfection #perfect princess, etc. - she is not actually perfect
i mean, emma screws up all the time. she lies to henry about his dad. she gets mad at her parents and acts like a sullen teenager. she lies to herself about her feelings. she holds grudges, and snaps out impatiently at people who try to break down her walls. she trusts too quickly or doesn’t trust at all. she unneccessarily doubts herself, to the point of letting friends walk all over her. or alternately, she tries to save everyone, often to her detriment or theirs
(exhibit a, she tuRNS HOOK INTO A FRIGGIN DARK ONE)
but why i’m constantly tagging emma as ‘perfect’ is because she tries so hard to improve herself. constantly
ever since s1, she has been discovering more and more about herself, expanding her knowledge and correcting her behaviors. and she has become a woman who loves easily and forgives easily, but still kicks ass and knows who she is
she’s not just some guy’s girlfriend, or the town’s savior, or the daughter of royalty, or henry’s mom. she’s all of those things - but most importantly, she’s emma. she likes florals and leather and cashmere and denim so screw consistency. she’ll put her hair up and let her hair down and wear heels or flat boots as suits her fancy. she’ll wear makeup when she damn well pleases or maybe not at all. she’ll reach for your hand if you need comfort, but she’ll stand by your side with a sword if you need that, too. and she is loyal to her last breath, loving even when she’s upset or frustrated
and she finally, FINALLY has the kind of faith in herself that all of us want to have: she is not nothing - she was never nothing! she is emma swan, and she deserves a happy ending, too
jmo said that emma is the kind of woman she would love to be friends with, and that’s what makes her perfect, to me: she’s so very, very real and frank and raw, and she’s the most heartfelt character i’ve ever had the privilege of loving
Subaki is definitely that person who takes selfies and they turn out all blurry or something is blocking his face… Subaki from FE:F(Birthright) costest !! I have yet to start on his actual outfit but im very pleased with how his wig and makeup turned out this time around!! In case none of you noticed, Subaki is the love of my life, my practically perfect in every way sky knight
prompt: at first James and Lily don’t know how to do the boyfriend/girlfriend thing, but James acts less than smooth shouting compliments to her as she passes through the Common Room like “YOUR EYES ARE DAZZLING ME FROM OVER HERE LOVE” and “LOOK AT THAT SMALL INSIGNIFICANT HABIT OF LILYS WOW GUYS SHES SO PERFECT HEY LILY UR PERFECT”
notes: this is just james struggling to be a human being tbh. sorry i’m late :( for some reason it wouldn’t let me post anything which sucked
“Evans you are seriously so beautiful it makes me feel like I’m going to die.”
“Stop,” Lily says. She doesn’t look away from the chess game but her disapproval is radiating off her in what feels like literal waves. “You are distracting me from destroying Black at chess.”
Sirius pulls a face at her and moves his knight forward. James barely resists pointing out the many other, better moves he could have made instead (only because he is loyal to Lily and her goals – especially when they are related to beating Sirius.)
“Sirius is destroying himself,” he says instead. “Do you even care that I’m dying?”
arrested development opening + friends plot parody:
When the recently fired Knox starts struggling to pay rent, his twin sister, Autumn, tells him that a friend of hers in her apartment building is in need of a roommate. He’s reluctant at first, but he decides (well, Autumn decides for him, and he was honestly a bit too scared to disagree) that he should stop living life with ‘a stick up his ass’. So he throws caution to the wind and somehow ends up not only with a new place and a new roommate, but also finds himself attending Autumn’s weekly singing sessions, having neighbours barging in his and Malone’s place like its theirs, getting a in-between-jobs job at the nearby coffeeshop, making eight amazing new friends, and maybe even falling in love with someone who’s too cool for him in the process (come on, her hair is BLUE for God’s sakes. She’s WAAY out of his league).
this was supposed to be a simple 'oh i shud find a cool way to introduce sugarballoon’s sim (named Mae temporarily) onto my blog’ but then i may have gotten a little carried away….
I have this headcanon that at first James and Lily don’t know how to do the boyfriend/girlfriend thing, but Lily introduces James as her bf and holds his hand and whatever, you know, just handles it like most normal people would manage the situation
James on the other hand acts somewhat less smoothly…
He would shout compliments to her as she passes through the Common Room like “LILY YOU LOOK WONDERFUL TODAY, EVERYONE LOOK AT MY BEAUTIFUL GIRLFRIEND” and “YOUR EYES ARE DAZZLING ME FROM OVER HERE LOVE” and “LOOK AT THAT SMALL INSIGNIFICANT HABIT OF LILYS WOW GUYS SHES SO PERFECT HEY LILY UR PERFECT”
Lily would be like “ur a dolt potter” and roll her eyes, or she’d march up to him and cover his mouth with her hand because “oh my god James -look, thank you love- but for merlin’s sake you’re disturbing everyone” but the rest of the Gryffindors don’t mind because they can all see her smile as she’s blushing and are all just thinking fiNALLY
Ok why are people actually complaining about allura handling keith’s situation badly? Because it didn’t fit the headcanons? I’ll admit it stung, but come on. It wasn’t out of character. Hot headed and single mindedly focused on her own beliefs and goals leading her to be insanely biased sometimes–that has been part of allura’s character since day one. And then on top of that, the subject matter is the people who blew up her home and killed her entire race. I saw her reaction coming from miles away. Her actions were discriminatory, cruel, unfair, and totally expected. Allura’s not meant to be perfect; she doesn’t exist to match ur image of a kickass yet fair-minded queen. In season one she invaded a galra ship despite all protests because she was frustrated. She basically tried to scare the paladins into staying on with her, albeit with the truth, and refused to let them take time to cope with their situation. Her idea of encouraging a nervous pidge was “you have to do this or ur friends are all doomed”. She lied about the black lion and then said it was to “protect” shiro. The point is, allura can be kinda closed minded and, for all her bluster, she has no clue what she’s doing. That’s been true since season one. I thought her resentment of anything galra was incredibly well done and in character. Even if you don’t completely agree with my assessment, you have to admit that it wasn’t like her behavior actually came out of nowhere. And before anyone whines about how it makes her dislikable, I’ll remind you that she recognized her faults, recognized it was unfair to keith, and gave him a sincere apology. Which keith accepted, by the way. I was pissed af at her and keith is one of my absolute faves but even I knew that that was a very fair apology. If you find her dislikable after that, then maybe you just don’t like her character all that much.
