that feel when your incorporeal Dark Lord cbf coming up with a Cool Villain Name for his least fav follower X)
based on this post, and because I can’t get over learning that Asmodean literally means “Musician” in the official Wheel of Time companion book, I’m still flipping out poor Asmo, this is why I love you
Summary: Phil’s a little shy with his newfound friend during a school field trip.
Genre: High School AU, flower boy!pastel!Phil, punk!Dan
A/N: So I wrote this instead of doing my astronomy homework. It’s short and sweet, not much editing, but I love it. I’m a huge sucker for pastel!phil and punk!dan, though. This is dedicated to the anon that said they’d love to read this and @dooloonoo since this is her favorite trope. Hope you guys enjoy! Also, a new chapter of Sugar on Top will be out soon. I promise.
dreamt of @chokoraitodisuko‘s amazing jungle town alma! 🍒🍍🌴 aaaa the whole atmosphere was sooo cool! ♡ I absolutely adored how creative and exciting this town was! ♪ the torches and fire pits looked so perfect everywhere! 🔥🍖 and I really loved running around and exploring in the ogre mask hehe! it was so beautiful! ♡ the interiors and characters were incredible too!
Can someone explain why it’s so difficult to write about my own BIAS, but when I see something like a leaf fall off a tree I’m all like “I just thought of a perfect imagine for literally everyone but the light of my life.”
I just really do not understand where people are getting the idea that Kavinsky loves and is honest with himself, especially when compared to Ronan.
Kavinsky does not accept himself. He does not have an unapologetic view of his sexuality. He calls Ronan queer slurs throughout the entire book and mocks him for his perceived sexuality. It’s not cute, it’s not flirting: it’s hate. It’s the bigot fixating on what they perceive as a flaw in someone else because they can’t accept that in themselves. The fact that he shares aspects of that sexuality with Ronan only makes it obvious that Kavinsky does not view that aspect of himself with acceptance. As a matter of fact, the one time he displays his sexuality toward Ronan in the book was after he had drugged him so he could not possibly reject his advances, which, on top of being assault, also reinforces the idea that Kavinsky can only be ‘himself’ when he has eliminated the opportunity for someone else to reject him.
Furthermore, the strange idea that Ronan hates himself because he’s gay (and is therefore not a positive lgbt character) is a huge oversimplification of his character that reduces all of his experiences down to the fact that he likes men and ignores every other reason he gives for his self-hatred. Ronan has severe PTSD that stems from finding his father’s corpse in the driveway. He hates himself because he couldn’t save him, hates himself because he didn’t fight harder to stay at the Barns, hates himself because there are horrors in his mind, hates himself because he doesn’t understand who he is. He… doesn’t hate himself because he’s gay. He keeps his sexual identity as a secret from himself because he is afraid. The book spells this out. He doesn’t understand himself- his powers, his PTSD, his sexuality- and his lack of understanding is terrifying. Dream Thieves is about Ronan overcoming his fear of himself, finding out who he is, and accepting himself for it.
At the end of the book, Kavinsky literally summons a monster fueled by his own self loathing. This monster kills him, an act that’s basically spelled out to be suicide. Ronan, by contrast, realizes that he doesn’t hate himself and controls his own monster because he finally understands it (meaning he understands and accepts himself). I can’t fathom how Ronan’s character arc is not immensely more powerful and positive than Kavinsky’s, due to that reason alone.
I love Kavinsky a lot (he’s probably one of my top 3 favorite characters), but using him as an ideal model for an honest or self accepting lgbt character and then turning around and saying that Ronan is not just makes absolutely zero sense to me.
Okay but Alec lounging in their bed, still sleepy despite it being 12pm, constantly yawning, his hair a mess, his breath a new weapon for killing demons, his face feeling greasy, his beautiful gorgeous boyfriend is getting ready in front of him and he’s just so incredibly foolishly ridiculously happy. And as he looks at Magnus’s flawless frame lazily moving to finally put on the outfit after spending the last hour picking it out, he stretches out his arms towards him and mumbles “Noo, come back to bed and tell me more about the time you met Mother Teresa.” Magnus chuckles, giving him a fond look and shakes his head: “You know I want to darling, but there’s a client waiting and i don’t wanna be late… another hour.” Alec pouts as he sees the perfectly sculpted chest disappear from his view and be replaced with a flowy white shirt. “Oh,” he says, a smirk tugging at his lips, “you don’t have to get dressed up for me.” Magnus looks over at him, amusement evident in his eyes, his eyebrows raised, but continuing to button up his shirt. “Fiiine,” Alec sighs dramatically and gets up from their bed to walk up to his boyfriend, wrap his hands around his waist and catch his lips in a kiss, “but I like what I saw.”
It took us (well, @freyci to be exact, I was watching and helping her the whole time) 65+ hours to finish (not everything tho) and we have a really strong opinion about the game.
Don’t get me wrong - I love FFXV, I love the characters, I love the story, I love the world they live in and I won’t stop loving and posting and creating - but I’m so utterly disappointed in a few things.
Feel free to correct me, I would love to talk about it and believe me, I would be the happiest if I were wrong about something! Beware, it’s gonna be long, though! (Also SPOILER alert)
