Nothing is going to dissuade me from the visual of Allura, sitting alone at her kitchen table. A cup of tea in her hand as she reflects on the news she had received from Vox Machina. The room is silent, calm as she watches the steam slowly rising from the cup.
All is peaceful until the door slams open, rattling on its hinges, to reveal Kima standing in the doorway. She’s breathing heavily, her cheeks pink from her mad dash from the castle, her eyes glowing as she practically vibrates with barely suppressed excitement.
i wasn’t even calling gina manipulative for being jealous, it was because she flipped out when audrey, a trauma victim, asked her a genuine, reasonable question about how she got to the island. instead of answering a simple question and being done with it she opted to gaslight audrey and make her feel like shit for being understandably confused about the circumstances by which gina arrived there and knew where they all were.
its also manipulative to literally tell your significant other to go on a trip, one that they said multiple times they wouldn’t go on so they could spend time with you, and then throw it in their face that they went as if they abandoned you when you literally told them to go.
[[some dude took my chai latte for his drink at the local starbucks. I didn’t notice I didn’t have my own drink since we both ordered grande.
He actually flagged me down and told me and he was all stuttery and it was so fucking funny cause here’s this tall dark haired caucasian man who’s all flustered and then offering to buy me a new one because he already took a sip.
I just asked if he had any strange diseases and he said no, so I took the latte from him and started drinking.

[Tsar Alexander II was a more liberal man and had introduced many reforms during his reign, inculding the emancipation of the serfs in Russia. In the latter half of the 19th century, Russia’s industry was expanding and the country was becoming more and more important in the world’s economy as it industrialized. - however, Alexander II was assassinated in 1881 as there was a lot of dissatisfaction within the country. Industrialization didn’t reach far yet and the workplace conditions were awful; there were movements that condemned the westernization and industralization and called for a return to the old rural days.
Alexander III, who succeeded Alexander II after his death, was highly reactionary.]
Today in class this girl was like “I don’t even GET lesbian sex, like what is there to DO without the d?” And I was gonna say something but then this little sophomore (who normally gets really embarrassed when we talk about sex) jumps in and he’s like “TONGUE you use your TONGUE” and I was so proud that I high fived him
