so i can just blame it on that

I think you still love me, but we can’t escape the fact that I’m not enough for you. I knew this was going to happen. So I’m not blaming you for falling in love with another woman. I’m not angry, either. I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain. A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine how much this would hurt, but I was wrong.

The more I read about 4-17, the more I’m confused. People couldn’t seriously expect Jay to stay and talk everything out with Erin, could they?

First, let’s put the analysis of Jay’s behavior aside for a minute and remember that CPD is a damn TV-show. What would have been the purpose of bringing this new storyline to life if at the end of the episode Jay had been like, “Sure, Erin, let’s talk”? That would’ve made no sense, just a waste of screen time. Not to mention that now, that would’ve been out of character.

And that’s my second point. I feel like the most of those people who aren’t happy with Jay leaving are so used to see Jay as an ideal sweet and supportive boyfriend and only in this light (I can’t quite blame them for this given there wasn’t much of Jay outside of Linstead this season) that they forgot he is a veteran. Jay-boyfriend would stay. Jay-veteran has left. Jay-boyfriend is ready to be there for Erin while Jay-veteran isn’t ready for Erin to be there for him. More on this under the cut.

Finally, girls, stop blindly siding with girls. My heart breaks for Erin too. The way she handled the whole situation does her credit and speaks volumes about the depth of her feelings for Jay. She sure deserves our compassion but so does Jay. Just try and look at the situation from the other point view.

Warning: long post ahead.

Like everyone makes jokes about Sombra hacking and checking search histories, but like she probably does.

She knows Tracer has an online shopping habit.

She knows Solider 76 has a habit of checking out dog memes on Facebook.

Reaper looks up cat vids.

Widowmaker? She googles her symptoms (Sombra is concerned).

She knows McCree just looks up the “what in ______” memes

She is actually concerned with what Mercy looks up. With Mercy typing the exact words “why does my team keeping dying and then blame me when I can’t fucking heal them” and “why does my team suck”, she feels threatened to go on a Mercy team.

And so much more. Fear her for she is god.

It wasn't til the stream yesterday that I realized you're like still making videos and that just makes me so happy

You’re not the only one! I announced my comeback last June as far and wide as I could, but so many people didn’t get the memo. Blame the algorithms. So far I’ve only been able to make one video a month, but now that I’m settling into my new home, I’m going to try to produce more as I can. 

So I have a lot of people begging (INTENSE begging) me to do another voice chat stream, but I’m honestly still recovering from that so I will do it on these conditions:

Either I

A) Reach 6000 followers. You guys can speed up that process by promoting my blog. This option makes the stream inevitable, so it’s guaranteed to happen. It’ll just take a while.

or 

B) I receive at least 50 pieces of SimplyPeridot™ appreciation art (drawings, comics, videos, stories, songs, etc.) but you have to put actual effort into them and can only submit one a day. 

As you can see I’m trying to make this kinda hard, hehe. Good luck! If you don’t like the huge number of 50, blame the members of the discord chat

“Blood On Your Hands”.

I can’t get Jack’s title for the final episode of Detention out of my mind.

I have no doubt that it’s Anti talking to us. So why is there blood on our hands? 

Then I remembered the last time blood was spilled on the channel.

Hard to forget. What’s more is that Anti blamed us for what happened.

You could have stopped me… But you just watched.”

… Is this just a reminder from Anti, that all we can do is watch? I’m not sure.

I’m more curious if the blood will ever wash off.

Gency Week Day 1: First (Genji’s first time eating after cyberization)

I’m so sorry this isn’t shippy at all but I’ve never thought of this ship as fluff only 
∠( ᐛ 」∠)_

but i am sorry about how long it is. Whoops. 
Just putting it out there that Angela is trying her best to help him, but you can’t blame Genji for being upset either. Hang in there you both (iДi)

late night phone scribbles

In which Phichit is me muehhehehehhhhh

this was done days before this week’s episode so can’t blame me if some ships don’t sit right with you lmao also we need seungchuchu

I kinda feel for Keith though, I mean he’s over here holding hands with Lance and cradling him in his arms

(Not to mention that Lance totally forgot about this)

Flirting with him

Making it painfully obvious that he has feelings for him

He’s doing all he can people, and then Lance doesn’t even notice any of this, he just flirts with Allura right in front of him

(It’s really no surprise why Keith is always making that face)

Kisses mice behind his back (pfftt)

And then this is literally what he gets in return

So honestly, you really can’t blame him for always acting/looking so done and like he wants to severely injure Lance 

It’s relatable

anyone else who thinks this is fucking terrifying? he’s straight up telling everyone to blame the judge and the entire court system for any future terrorist attack. this isn’t just mr. pissboy throwing a tantrum, it’s worse than that. this is preparing the groundwork, so that when a terrorist attack happens, trump can blame the court system and justify weakening it to gain more power. it’s the fucking Reichstag fire all over again

“I think about you a lot,” she told him. “Every now and then, you’ll cross my mind, and I just can’t seem to shake the thought of it all… I let go of something that had so much potential to be so beautiful. Just like that.”

His heart started thudding so loud that it echoed in his ears. “You can’t say this to me here,” he said. “Not now. Not after all this time.”

She looked down, embarrassed. “It’s selfish of me to say, I know.” She looked up and met his eyes. “But you were so sweet to me. So kind. And I let the thought of missing someone else drive me away from you.”

He shook his head. “You weren’t ready for love again,” he told her. “Don’t blame yourself for the scars that someone else left on you. It was never your fault that you couldn’t be with me, it was the reminisce of him, still holding you back. Just when you were ready to jump in, he would pull you back. And that was no one’s fault but his.”

She watched him closely as he comforted her. He was always so good at soothing her broken heart — something that was never his job to do, but he did it anyway. “It could’ve been us, you know,” she said quietly. “You and me against the world. And I’m just sorry that it didn’t work out like that.”

Then, in the corner of her eye, she could see his fiancé returning with their drinks. She turned to leave him, but before she did, she heard him say it. It was soft and hidden under his breath, but it was there.

“Sometimes, I am, too.”

—  excerpt from an unfinished book #129 // You were Prince Charming but I sent you away because I was busy missing a toad

Link: My guardian the Great Deku Tree just died and I was blamed for it and exiled out of my village despite that I killed a giant one eyed spider ten times my size to try to save him and I just traveled across an entire country barefoot all by myself because I was told that I must find my way into Hyrule Castle so I can meet a Princess I’ve never heard of before so we can save the world!

Malon:

I’m rewatching RWBY volume three and I just got to chapter eight, where Qrow says ‘sometimes bad things just happen’. How many times do you think he’s mumbled that to himself, alone in a bar over a shot of whiskey, to try and convince himself that not every bad thing that happens is his fault. That fate can be to blame, it’s not his fault, he didn’t cause it, he couldn’t have stopped it, it wasn’t his fault.

I have a lot of emotions about this man.

The moon signs when they’re emotional

Aries: I’M GOING TO PUNCH A WALL!!!!!! WHY DOES EVERYONE HAVE TO BE OUT TO GET ME???? CAN’T I LIVE??? I’M SO UPSET AND WHY DOES NO ONE CARE??? MY EMOTIONS ARE THE #1 PRIORITY RN!!!! *blames someone else for their problems* (5 minutes later is over it)

Virgo: am I actually feeling this or am I just projecting my feelings into this moment so that I can get them out? what do these feelings mean? what does the fact that I’m questioning my feelings mean? is that another feeling? is life even real? I hate myself I’m so INCOMPETENT *hysterical crying*

Libra: nOOOOO this means cONFLICT!!!!!! I can’t have this in my life!!!!!! maybe if I hold this in nothing will happen. I definitely won’t bother anyone else about it because that would be tOO MUCH FOR ME I can’t put burden on others
