so before and after the concert, i was approached by 3 different xingmis giving me free merch. and then after the concert, i was walking near my hotel to get food and a bunch of girls shouted “lay”, and when i turned around they had such loving and excited smiles on their faces. anyways, i love being a xingmi and i love zhang yixing 💖
shout out to the girls that hate their bodies but are trying really really hard to find the beauty and comfort in them because that shit is hard and takes a lot of time and is emotionally exhausting. i’m proud of y'all.
The scene opens on the Swan-Jones house. We go into the house. It looks different than before – actually well-lived in now. Books and toys are scattered about and pictures hang on the walls. The camera pans past some of these pictures. There are obvious ones hanging like Emma and Killian’s wedding photos, Emma and David by the Sheriff’s car, but there are new ones, as well. Emma and Hook in the hospital room cradling a small bundle, happy and exhausted grins on their faces. There’s Henry in a graduation robe, flanked by both Emma and Regina. There’s a shot of Regina with a mystery character we haven’t seen together, clearly at their own wedding. There’s even Belle with Gideon, smiling happily. Basically, a few years have passed, and it’s been a good few years.
We hear a squeal, and the scene turns to Emma and Hook preparing a child for bed. Emma’s phone rings, and she learns that there’s a crisis on the docks. Looks like it’s a job for the Sheriff.
“Sure you don’t need backup, love?”
“Please, after the demagorgon last month, this is gonna be a cakewalk. Sure you can handle bedtime?”
“It’ll be a cake walk.”
They kiss, and Emma goes off to save the day. Because she’s Emma Swan, ass-kicker extraordinaire.
We stick with Killian and little Swan-Jones. It’s story time, and the kid holds up a “Once Upon a Time” book. They begin to flip through it, and we realize that this book is different. There are new stories than what we’ve seen.
“Your brother’s been busy, but how about I tell you about a story that isn’t in your brother’s book.”
The kid’s eyes go wide. It’s interested.
“You see, Once Upon a Time, your Aunt Regina…”
And there we go. It’s a new season. The season is literally this story featuring everyone who is coming back. There can be flashbacks within flashbacks. Emma doesn’t die. She’s off kicking ass. We learn that most everyone gets their HEA/HB. If there’s a season after that, it’s another story. The series ends with Hook telling the kid to go to sleep, tomorrow is a big day, after all.
“It’s your Mum’s birthday.”
If we get JMo to come back, the scene cuts to her party at Granny’s. Everyone is there. Henry is wearing a college sweatshirt. Snow and Charming are there. Regina is being her fabulous self with her love interest, who we meet in the story, by her side. Emma, surrounded by her family and friends, blows out the candle. We go full circle.
(Updated) So, during Gerard’s 2nd panel today, someone asked, “What’s a good idea that you’ve had that never got to see the light of day?”
And Gerard goes, “I wanted my band to dress like Chimney Sweeps. Like, I really wanted to have us be in chimney sweep costumes and no one wanted to do it and it got shut down…. And I think it was an awesome idea! And this was before Panic! At the Disco by like a year! And then those dudes came out and I was like, ‘See?!’ ”
And then some girl shouts, “It’s not too late!”
Then he replied, “I’m one guy now…”
And another girl goes, “That didn’t stop Brendon!”
I remember being teased relentlessly throughout my childhood and my teenage life where people would say that because of my skin I’ll never be beautiful enough, they would even recommend skin bleaching products. So as a child I quickly realised that as a dark skinned girl I was not considered beautiful enough… At that time I didn’t know that it was the negativity from the people around me that was causing me to hate my skin and myself for that matter. I remember a time during school photos where a girl shouted “she’s too dark! You won’t see anything on her ID but her teeth!”, of course everyone laughed it out… And so did I…. Because I didn’t want to make it seem like I was offended… Their feelings felt more important than mine… After all growing up I was always reminded of how unlikely I was of ever being beautiful or finding someone that found my darkness beautiful…..
As a 19 year old today I sit here and say “I never gave in to skin bleaching”, “I was constantly reminded of how ugly I was but that only made me love myself even more….. I began considering myself as someone different, someone beautiful and out of the ordinary.”
Your skin no matter how dark it is that when you smile you can only see the glow of your teeth is worthy of love, your skin is that of a goddess and you should never feel anything about your skin but self love. I write this to all of the people that have gone through similar and worse, you don’t need to learn to Love your skin, the love is already there… You just gotta unleash it.
I would like to hear some stories of yours if you’ve ever gone through the same thing…. Message me on Instagram.
its so weird for me seeing media representation of two girls kissing or something b/c it makes me think; is this how straight people feel when they watch romance movies? iv never felt anything while watch a heterosexual kissing scene, i watch entire romance movies waiting to feel something, to connect to the characters and then i watch Hayley Kiyoko’s 5 minute music video about two girls and it has me on the edge of tears and it makes me so upset b/c to me finding content like that 5 minute video is so rare sometimes i start to think that i am incapable of feelings. this is why representation is so fucking important
shout out to every girl coming to terms with loving other girls. there’s not something wrong with you. you aren’t a predator. you aren’t gross or disgusting or awful. you are good. you are important & special & you are allowed to love girls.
“Suddenly you’re 21 and screaming along in your car to all the songs you used to listen to when you were sad in middle school and everything is different but everything is good.”
I turned 13 in 2008. The Myspace era was coming to a close and Facebook became the new preferred social media platform. The music I had found in my preteen and early teen years majorly shaped my current music taste at 21 years old. Like for most people, middle school and high school were not easy times. The music that I came across on Myspace and the early YouTube years reflected the real emotions and struggles that I faced. It made me not want to only listen to songs like Gold Digger, Ms. New Booty, Smack That, My Humps, I Kissed a Girl, or whatever else was playing everywhere. I craved music that I could relate to. I needed music with true emotion behind it.
Anyways, here are the songs that got me through my preteen and early years and shaped who I am today. They’re in no particular order.

she shines so bright
but it doesn’t
make the stars seem duller
no, she’s the lightswitch, the fuse,
each and every thing is illuminated
just because it saw her
tell me, have you ever seen a bluer sky?
everything became brighter when i met you // L.H
