so i'm still kind of hesitant but

Reasons why I love Static

A good hero works well with others

Look at how the other heroes smile at him, they are genuinely happy to meet him. When Superman saves him, he isn’t upset. He’s happy. He asked to be saved and he was

And it’s not the last time either. You see it here

and here

he works well with the justice league members even though his interactions with them are rare and in between.

He’s literally never afraid to ask them for help

I mean, look at that. He made the bat signal, he was outright asking for help as publicly as he ever could.

and in “Fallen hero” when he thought Green Lantern really had become evil…

Just look at his face. He is shocked. He can’t believe one of his heroes would do this, he tried to figure out why, tried to come up with a reason to explain it, so it would make sense.

And the moment Sinestro, disguised as Green Lantern, hurt Gear. He knew it was true, and he’s horrified that the person he looked up to did this and he’s angry, angry that he didn’t see this.

Static knows when to fight

but he also knows when someone just needs a helping hand

and sure, he jokes around

but he also knows how important the work he does is

and he also knows what happens if he messes up

His family knows what it is he does and they all support him in whatever way they can.

and that’s why I love Static shock. Yes, they touched upon some serious issues

they didn’t dumb it down for the audience, or treat the issues with kiddie gloves, they addressed the issues and those were also the same episodes that they broke the fourth wall. Dyslexia, gun control, gang violence, racism. They didn’t pull their punches on this show.

They showed us a still very much grieving teenager who almost joins a gang in the first episode, who gets powers that he uses to protect other people without a moment of hesitation, not even thinking of getting revenge on his bullies. Even as a superhero, he still volunteers at the community center his dad runs.

Yes, Virgil makes mistakes, he’s still a kid after all, but he’s so genuinely kind and sincere that we can’t help but love him.

I changed my mind a bit, like you. I was thinking it would be tentative and subtle but damn! these two are going to explode. They can't hold it anymore and they're trying it, really hard. I still think it will be Clarke the one who makes the first move but Bellamy is going to kiss her back without hesitation and they're going to pour all their love, passion, tension, feelings into that kiss. They better give us a good kiss or I'm sueing.

Yeah, I wasn’t going there before this episode, but they are laying on the restraint and repression so thick that it’s getting kind of ridiculous, forced, tense, overwhelming… and I think that’s on purpose. I don’t think it’s to screw with us, I think it’s to build the sexual tension, yes to drive us crazy, but also to drive Clarke and Bellamy crazy.

And at this point, I feel like Clarke DID make a move, and she’s changed her treatment of him so much since the List scene, that I’m not sure she WILL make another move. 

That look she gave him when she told him he was special, the anxiety/sadness/shame/shyness of it? And her refusal to look back at him. And when she did turn to him it was like, “What? I didn’t reveal my heart. There’s nothing happening here. We’re just bros being bros. You know. Totally platonic specialness, nothing to see here DON’TYOUDARESAYTHATYOUWILLDIEYOUWILLNOTDIESHUTUPDON’TSPEAKANYMORE phew oh Roan is calling. Dammit. The apocalypse again.”

Sorry I got distracted.

Yeah. He heard that special comment and it meant something to him and the look on his face was speculative and he went for something. HE WENT FOR SOMETHING. To tell her SOMETHING. Maybe it was just about how she was special too, maybe it was a love confession. But any way it went it was going to be something that he needed her to hear about what she meant to him. And that means HE was going to make a move independent of her initiating.

I think Bellamy has grown enough that he might make the first move. I’m going to say 50/50 at this point.

There’s going to be a good kiss. The season opened with them practically in each other’s laps, and I consider that a statement of of narrative intent. You don’t START like that and then pretend there’s nothing there. When you put a key element in play at the beginning, it has to be used by the end or you are betraying your audience.

Me, starting season 2: Shana’s leaving!!?? Whoever replaces her will never win any of my love!

Raya: *shows up*

Me: I would die for you without hesitation

tbh the scenes with the "don't tell anyone" with varchie and jughead gave me more "a bunch of our secrets were just spilled by other people last night and that was horrendous this isn't my secret to tell so i'll wait until you're ready to tell anyone else" kind of vibe than a "i'm still afraid betty has feelings for archie" kind of vibe. especially with the overall tone of the scenes. but now i'm a bit nervous too.

that actually makes a lot of sense. neither scene had a nervous or secretive vibe to it. they all looked quite happy. i think that v and archie might be hesitant to tell betty just because their first kiss hurt her so much and nearly cost them their friendships with her. i’m HOPING that when betty finds out, she’s completely chill with it. i don’t want a love triangle.

 in any form. 

keep it away from me.

please. 

god.

What exactly DO we know about Nesta's powers???? Because I still feel like i'm super confused.....

It’s kind of unclear. Buuut We think she is a witch. Because witches are said to be able to amass power, which is what she technically did when she took it from the cauldron. We also got some evidence that maybe she had normal fae powers such as the mention of her possibly healing Cassian a bit. Although that was unclear even to Feyre. So….we don’t really know. But Nesta said yes without hesitation when Devlon asked if she was a witch. I took that as her identifying with the term/also wanting to scare Devlon cuz why not?

i have this recurring thought that while lucifer will be very happy that chloe is pregnant he’d still be kind of lost and afraid at first so it will make him seem hesitant. and chloe tries to be understanding but she’s hormonal and hurt bc she thinks he doesn’t want her anymore (but rly he’s just afraid to hurt her somehow) or doesn’t want the baby (but she knows he wouldn’t lie to her so she knows that isn’t true logically) until one night she’s laying next to him asleep and he notices her small baby bump for the first time and he gets overwhelmed w/ love and touches her gently before leaning down and kissing her belly and chloe wakes up and runs her hands thru his hair and they’re both crying a little. ok, that’s all.

personal update

k I’ve been super hesitant to say this but I know a lot of my followers are ace/aro so I feel like I owe you guys this

Back in January my best male friend asked me out. I’d never felt so close to a guy, and he was so kind and respectful and trustworthy I said, “fuck it, I’ll try dating him.” So I told him I’d never been attracted to anyone before and just wanted to try dating because I enjoyed being around him so much, and he understood and accepted that.

Then the unexpected happened. As our relationship went on we grew more serious romantically, and I realized I am absolutely attracted to this guy, and not only that, I’m head over heels. It’s been about 8 months now and I couldn’t be happier.

I don’t regret identifying as ace/aro, and I don’t believe I lied. Where I was, that’s how I genuinely felt, how I genuinely identified, and I thought that would never change. Thing is, as I now have learned, people change, sexuality is often fluid, and where I am now I identify as straight (demisexual if anything). I realize my situation isn’t the norm for ace/aro people AT ALL and I want to emphasize to any onlookers that my situation does not invalidate ace/aro people AT ALL. I still plan to support the ace/aro community as much as I can, you all are lovely people who’ve been there for me practically since I started on Tumblr. So I feel that I owe it to you guys to be open about how I identify now.

I was offered a teaching position!!

“We interviewed a while ago and I know you said you had some other offers to entertain and I am wondering if you found a position or not. Could you be so kind as to let me know?  We do have a position open if you are interested. Thanks!!!”

cosetteskywalker  asked:

I kind of have to agree about Kylo killing Han being the "worsening of the crimes". Like, I think it *might* be a possibility that he does something "worse" in VIII, but then my question is about whether it would still be kid-friendly, considering SW is a family movie - I'm already surprised TPTB had the guts of the legacy character committing patricide...

Yep! It was a good call by @starwars-hell, and totally plausible given the information we have so far. I hesitate on calling it a definite (as you all know, I like to work with established facts), but it could also add another layer of value (and clarity) to JJ’s TFA commentary where he talks about Kylo’s “realization” during the killing of Han (and why he calls him Ben):

I think, the idea of killing Han Solo was a crazy, painful idea. […] People have asked me if I think that Kylo Ren was just playing with him the whole time, if he meant to kill him from the beginning. And the truth is, I think that Kylo Ren in this moment is actually being convinced to walk away from this. Snoke is, as Han says, using him. And I think that somewhere Ben knows this. […] I think that Ben is legitimately going to give up. But then, the idea was that in this moment, where he’s taking the lightsaber and offering it to him as a gesture, the sun finally is drained from the sky. And you see the light go away. And now they’re in this darkness. And darkness takes over. […] And I think, the instant that he’s done it, he regrets it.

As for whether it will be kid-friendly - Disney is going to want to keep that PG13 rating for $$$. So while they might push the boundaries of the rating they will still stay within acceptable guidelines.

Downside to all of this: we might not get Sith eyes. @arriku-muses I am crushed.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any advice for getting your first tattoo? I have several ideas, but I'm still hesitant and fearful Though at the same time I am so ready.. haha

Honestly? There’s no advice to be given about getting tattoos. People over-complicate things.

Don’t get a tattoo if you’re not sure. That’s different from being hesitant. It’s a big commitment, so be 100% positive that you want to commit to it before you decide to get it done. There ain’t no going back, aside from painful lasers or even bigger, more complicated tattoos.

Be prepared for people to constantly pry and ask about the meaning behind your tattoos. It might get annoying after a while, but always be kind about it because people are just genuinely curious. That is, unless they’re the kind of shitheads who ask about it condescendingly because they think tattoos are stupid or have to hold some kind of deep meaning to be valid.

All of my tattoos hold a very deep and personal meaning. They’re based on experiences I want to remember, things that have meant a lot to me and parts of my personality I want to hold onto and always carry with me. But guess what? That’s just me. I’m a sentimental fuck and a hopeful writer, so anything I put on me typically has a deeply rooted emotional connection and a story to it.

Are you not that kind of person? That’s okay! Do you want a geometric owl tattoo because you like owls and geometric patterns are cool? Fucking rad, I hope it comes out great. The shit you put on your body, whether sentimental or not, is your own fucking business and nobody should judge you for it.

Find an artist you like and go to him or her when you’re playing to their strength. I’ve been going to the same artist in Staten Island for about 4 years and he’s fantastic. He’s especially great at doing pattern-work and free handing text, which are the two styles I employ most frequently with my tattoo ideas. Hypothetically, if I were to get a portrait tattoo and knew that portraits weren’t his strong suit (because they’re fucking hard) i’d do research into another artist who specialized in them before I got them done.

Good luck.

holtzmann-love  asked:

do holtzbert for who does this and that :)

how they comfort each other when one of them is upset: Erin always attempts to use rational methods of calming Holtzmann down, but in the end she just tries to get her to dance. If she can get her to loosen up a little bit, she’ll start to feel better, and communicate better. Erin doesn’t get mad often, mostly just frustrated, and Holtzmann always finds it to cute to really do anything about it. But if someone hurts Erin? That’s a whole different story. Holtzmann gets riled up, and riles up Patty, and soon everyone is working to defend Erin’s honor. 

who asked first Holtzmann did, and she tried so hard, so so hard, to be smooth about it, but Erin was so dense, she didn’t notice she was being asked out, which kind of threw a wrench in Holtzy’s plan

who says ‘i love you’ more Holtzmann knows Erin likes to hear it, and likes to write it on little notes for Erin to find later. She’s often embarrassed to say it out loud, but she ALWAYS makes sure Erin knows she’s loved (see more under who’s more needy)

kisses more Erin loves giving Holtzmann kisses, on the cheek, and the forehead, and the nose, and the neck, and- everywhere. And when they first start dating Holtzmann is weird about PDA and blushes like crazy

hugs more they don’t hug too often, but when they do, it’s usually a running bear hug from Holtz that knocks Erin onto the ground

drinks more Erin tries to avoid drinking, because she is such a sad drunk. Like just the saddest. And she never lets Holtzmann EUI (engineer under the influence) 

who’s more outgoing Holtzmann is- but if they’re out with the group, neither of them want to talk to new people, they’re both MORE than content with the family they have

who eats more erin eats more often, but like a bird, and just picks at all of her food (it’s never been a weight issue though- she’s just not a big eater) She loves berries though, and can go through like a large carton of blackberries in a single meal- despite only eating 1/3 of her sandwich for lunch the day before. Holtzmann likes to binge eat when she does remember, it’s more fun that way 

who’s more needy  Erin is 100% the kind of gal who at 2 AM leans over and says “pssst… you awake? do you still love me?” Holtzmann keeps an ‘I love you sticky” on the nightstand for times like those, and hands it to her without opening her eyes, instead choosing to go back to sleep. 

who’s more kinky Holtzmann wants to try EVERYTHING in the bedroom, not necessarily for the kink, but just because she’s so curious. Erin is hesitant, but there’s some stuff she enjoys more than other things. 

anonymous asked:

Hey, I recently figured out that I'm probably bisexual, as I'm attracted to both boys and girls. I didn't have to struggle or anything to come to terms with it myself, but I was still kinda hesitant about coming out. So I told my closest friend first, but she got mad and said that I shouldn't call myself bi because I "have no idea what it /really/ means", not like she does. I haven't told anyone else since then. Am I wrong? Is there really some kind of "test" or quota to fill?

The test is: Do you think/believe/feel/know you are bisexual? Is the answer yes? Then you passed! That’s all there is to it.

The SJPR addition of Louis is both surprising and not. I think I'm more confused as to why NOW Louis is added to the SJPR website? SJ has been in the background hovering every time Louis is at an event, so unsurprising that he's their client. And yet Louis' most recent project had DawBell being chosen to be the PR firm (with an announcement & everything) when both Steve and apparently Louis have their own PR firms. So why didn't SJPR add him right away? Why is DawBell even in the picture at all?

i don’t know. i’m still just kind of processing things but i’m also very hesitant to jump to conclusions because there’s still so much we don’t know (and as we’ve learned many times over the past year - what we see on the surface is often not indicative of what’s actually going on bts).

i still feel like there’s some serious compromising going on and i almost wonder if louis signed with simon jones at the same time that niall did last year but they’re only making it public now because louis has something to promote (i think we’re going to get an official push for just hold on soon) and because they’re trying to cover their butts for when louis publicly severs from syco (that way they can pretend there’s no bad blood there because ~louis signed with simon jones~ clearly everything’s wonderful blah blah blah). like i’m wondering if the simon jones thing is meant to mislead and isn’t actually indicative of louis’ plans moving forward (because yeah we have that whole dawbell thing to consider too)

Baron was relatively well known for being easygoing. He was fine with being the butt of everyone’s jokes, responding only with a whiny “I’m not stupid” every time Shock or Lock said so, and shrugging off most other insults. Nonna had told him what a blessing it was he hadn’t inherited his father’s hot button temper, but it was moments like these that he almost wished he did. His father’s rages ran hot but fizzled out quickly, moving easily to into forgiving and forgetting. And while Baron was certainly not quick to anger, on the rare occasion that he did get angry, it sat with him, festering under his skin, manifesting as relentless grudges.

It had been days since he’d spoken to Ella or Sienna. He had been furious after both conversations. Sienna had left, without an explanation, without talking to him, telling him she wasn’t even sure if she was coming back, and she had the nerve to tell him not to be mad? How would she expect him to feel after watching her walk out on him? On Ella? And Ella. He knew he was more angry with himself than her, that he couldn’t help her, make her see she deserved better from others. And then he was even more angry with himself for pushing it on her, for not finding some better way to handle things, talk to her. He replayed the fights over and over in his head, the anger gnawing at him.

It had been days since his argument with Ella and he hadn’t left the flat unless it was absolutely necessary, which hadn’t been often, much to his relief. He hadn’t even really noticed how many days had gone by until one day, when his phone pinged him. He figured it was Shock, yelling at him over text to do something, but instead it was a notification. From Facebook. “Today is Ella Glass’s birthday.” it read. Baron was confused. Ella hadn’t mentioned a birthday. But of course she hadn’t. Why would she? As soon as he read it his anger was replaced by guilt. He’d fought with her, days before her birthday. He didn’t even know it was one of his girlfriend’s fucking birthday. He certainly didn’t have anything for her. There wasn’t anything that really spurred a man to action like realizing he’d forgotten a significant other’s birthday.

Thirty minutes later he was showered and shaved, grabbing the keys to Lock’s car. He didn’t have much in the idea for a gift, let alone birthday plans, so he settled for stopping by a florist and putting together a last minute bouquet from what was still available at the end of the day (which wasn’t much, unfortunately). Another twenty minutes and he was at Ella’s door with a decidedly small bouquet, his hand poised in front of the door, hesitating to knock. What would he say? How would she react? But before he had time to knock, the door opened, and there she stood in front of him.

anonymous asked:

I started questioning things about the baby situation only a few weeks ago because I'm not exactly a fan. Before I was convinced that Tomlinson was a human representation of a piece of shit. What i happened to read about him was so horrible and seeing everything surrounding him and that baby is just awful. He doesn't give a shit about that baby. I want to believe he's is not his son. (I have to admit I'm staying away from the fandom because I'm still not sold that Louis is such a good person).


I really hesitate to post this because I hate posting negative asks about Louis. And I understand why you’d stay away from the fandom, it’s kind of a mess.

But there really is so much evidence that he’s a wonderful person, primarily through fan interaction with him and the wonderful way he’s so tirelessly works on behalf of charities that mean something to him (as opposed to people just declaring he’s perfect because he’s our favorite or him donating money to whatever the cause du jour is like some celebrities do).

Even little things like Nathan Fillion talking about how polite and helpful he was helping to clean up back stage at an awards show give you an idea of the impression that people that have met him have, even when they don’t have preconceived notions.

You don’t hear negative stories about him from other celebrities, not like you do with Bieber or Kanye or a lot of others. All that’s causing this perception of him are these stupid, redundant tabloid articles about a baby that we honestly do not believe is his.

So, I hope you’ll keep an eye out. He’s so much better of a person than what the tabloids are telling you.

anonymous asked:

Hey, I'm pre-t and it's my first year at college. I want to tell my profs to call me under a different name and male pronouns. I have a letter ready and everything the only problem is I don't know how they are like and this makes me hesitant. My classes start mid aug and I'm going to have to give it to them before then. Any advice?

I started college at 16 and had to go through the same process since my medical transition hadn’t begun by then, so I can offer a bit of insight from my own experiences. What I would suggest doing is emailing them prior to classes starting. The professor might take some kind of attendance in the first few sessions to see who is still in the class and as such you don’t want them shouting out your legal name. Keep the email as simple and to the point as possible, being forward and not leaving a lot of room for them to say no. An example of this would be something like:

Professor ___________,

 I am a student in your (insert class name here) beginning on (starting time and date). I am contacting you prior to class to let you know that I am a transgender student and am in the process of legally changing my name and gender. My name will show up on your roster as (legal name), but I only go by (chosen name) and (male, he/him,) pronouns. I will be putting (chosen name) on my assignments and would appreciate it if you called me that in class. If you have any questions for me regarding this, please don’t hesitate to contact me. My email address is (email address) and my phone number is (phone number).

 Thank you very much for your understanding,

(sign with chosen name)

This kind of format gets the information to the professor clearly and concisely. It also avoids that “preferred name/preferred pronouns” nonsense, which gives people room to not use them. You’re directly saying “this is what I go by and I will not go by anything else” instead of “oh if it isn’t a huge bother please call me this”. Some professors are probably going to be accepting and others might not be, that’s okay and it’s something to expect. It’s not the end of the world. Look up what protections are given underneath your schools guidelines, look up the federal protections you might have, and don’t be afraid to push for the respect you deserve.
