so much love for this individual

BTS: I Need U (Gay AU Version)

Story:

You’ve been friends with BTS for years and they’ve all individually caught feelings for you. The problem with that was that none of them had the courage to admit they’re feelings for you. All their worst nightmares came true. They saw you with another guy and haven’t taken that lightly at all.

*Trigger Warning*

Yoongi: He can feel himself going crazy. He constantly asks himself, “What is it that he has that I don’t?” “Why doesn’t he love that much?” He’s never felt so heart broken in his life. And it hurts even more than Yoongi feels like you don’t know he exists anymore which hurts him even more.

Jungkook:

He’s been crying so much over you that he doesn’t even care about anything or anyone else anymore. Jungkook feels that his only purpose in life was taken away from him. He still has hope that one day, you’ll be his again but at the same time he’s hopeless.

Taehyung:

This has been the lowest that Tae has been in a very long time. His sadness turned into anger and he resorts to hurting himself. Every other day, he’ll hit something or someone out of frustration that you’re not his boyfriend. It’s sad to say but the only way Taehyung will stop hurting himself and other people is if you come back to him.

Namjoon:

Namjoon feels two ways. He’ll either not care at all or he’ll care to much. He tries to do everything he can to convince himself that you’re happier with a different guy but in his heart he knows that he won’t be able to do that with himself. “I could’ve given you the world but apparently I wasn’t enough.”, he said to himself after thinking about you.

Jin:

All Jin can do is cry. He’s crying over the fact that you’re not his, that you don’t know that he exists anymore, that he wasn’t able to confess his love for you that he’s had for you for a long time. And it hurts more than you could possibly imagine.

Hoseok:

Watching you move on devastated Hoseok more than you probably would’ve ever imagined. He picked up a new coping mechanism: prescription pills and alcohol. He eventually stopped and had a withdrawal and emotional breakdown in the middle of the day. He collapsed to the ground and cried even harder over you. Hobi is completely torn.

Jimin:

He’s gone completely missing in action since you’ve been with your new boyfriend. No one has heard fro, Jimin or seen Jimin because he’s too busy being depressed over you. Unfortunately, it’s gonna take Jimin a while to get over you. But he isn’t going to ever.

anonymous asked:

I love your in-depth criticism of GOT, but which other shows do you watch/enjoy the most. and what do you love about them?

I don’t actually watch huge amounts of TV (or read a lot of fiction). In fact, I’m not currently watching anything, though a few anons have messaged me to say they think I’d enjoy The Wire. (It’s on my to-watch list now, anons, thanks!) But yeah, there are a few other series over the years I’ve watched and enjoyed very much.

folkyfaery: 

Please for the love of all that is sparkly and seasonal can I request a Molly/Mary from Sherlock fic? There are only a few of us shippers and we are thirsty for content! The prompt is them shopping for Christmas dinner, and arguing over what foods to have? Thank you so much.

—–

I don’t normally reply to these individually, but I wanted to give this some extra love - yes, of course you may! :D  All is welcome. Here’s to the smaller ships; they’re what makes fandom go ‘round. *salutes*

Things that were hard to accept

1. Your expectations are just that. Your expectations. People are not obligated to live up to them or abide by them. Even if they are in certain cases obligated to do so, there is no guarantee that they will. So don’t base your plans on that. And don’t base your life on that.

2. You can walk away. But so can they.
You can be hurt and you can be mad. But they will still walk away. They have that option. They can exercise that choice. People can get toxic for you. Believe it or not, so can you.

3. People have bullied you. And teased you. And judged you. But the person judging you constantly and the most harshly is you yourself.

4. They don’t respect you because you don’t respect yourself.

5. Not letting go is only keeping you sad and frustrated and stuck. They are unaffected. They are living their life wonderfully. They are free.

6. Taking care of yourself takes effort. It’s not just good feel quotes and pretty aesthetics. It’s work. A lot of work. It’s doing things that take time and sometimes it’s doing things you don’t want to do.

7. It’s gone. The past. You can regret as much as you like. But you’re only wasting more time.

8. Sometimes you are going to use the word love even though you don’t 100% want to. It’s because like is too little and there is no word in between. It’s because we use the same word for fries and for people. It’s because love means so many different things to every individual. It’s because you do love them. In one of those several meanings.

9. Sometimes you have to suck it up. It’s okay. Not every situation is meant for you to show your ‘true courage’ or real feelings.

Let this picture do the speaking for you.
What do you think it says?

when you think d*n and ph*l are being very suspicious and your inner demon wants to know what’s happening but you also love them so much and respect them as individuals and you don’t want to bother them or invade their privacies in any way, but at the same time you’re curious to know what’s going on and why they’re being so secretive on a lot of things, but you really don’t want to do anything to make them feel bad because their happiness and comfortableness means the most to you, but at the same time you really want to know what’s going on, but also want to being a respectful person because if they’re keeping things so private there must be a reason, but you really feel the urge to know what are they keeping you away from.. but really they’re the loves of your life and you don’t want to hurt them in any way ((..but you really want to know))

Peridot, Lapis and The Land Where Nothing Grows

So yeah. Stevenbomb 8 was about breaking up and grieving. I think Peridot’s feelings regarding her relationship with Lapis, her grieving and her way of dealing with both of those things were explained to us in one of the most beautiful metaphors  she show has used yet: Back to the kindergarden. 

I think that last piece of dialogue at the end of the episode actually reflect Lapis and Peridot’s relationship, as well as the posibility for both of them to move on. Here’s what I mean:

I. RELATIONSHIP: “I was a fool to think we could reinstitute life there”

“Guess the country side here is really beautiful…but who cares?! I wanted to have this for the kindergarden!”

Lapis, as we know, is a deeply damaged individual. She has never actually confronted her traumas, never dealt with her feelings and so we have her circling back to defense mechanisms whenever something slightly threatening shows. Her first instint is to fly the fuck away and never be seen or heard of again because if they can’t find you, they can’t hurt you, throw you to war or trap you in a fusion or a mirror. She has “safe” tattooed on her brain, and while none of these things make her a bad person™, they do make her someone who should seek out help before making harsh decissions. 

Peridot, on the other hand, is shown to have gone above and beyond- not neccessarily a good thing- to make Lapis happy, to make her feel safe, to provide that bubble-like environment that would give her security and would make sure that nothig bad or threatening ever, ever, EVER, touched her again. She found more artistic outlets as substitutes for her creative, curious mind. She stayed away from CG business (mostly), and instead gardened and grew a wall of crops. She made everything domestic, soft and quiet. In her never ending fear (bc Peridot is shown to be fucking frightened of inconveniencing Lapis) of disturbing Lapis in anyway, Peridot behaved like and enabler, lost herself in the bubble that did nothing to prevent Lapis from losing herself as well. 

Lapis and Peridot’s relationship is the land where nothing grows. Is the product of hiding from yourself, running from your issues, numbing your emotions, being afraid of the other. Nothing good can grow there, nothing will bloom in a foundation that lacks equality, communication and trust. 

The moment Peridot gets emotional, Lapis invalidates her. The moment she starts being anything other than the goofy, soft and slightly quirky gem and shows herself as a complex individual with worry, fears and irrational attatchments, Lapis can’t deal, so she snaps. And Peridot doesn’t know how not to be  an enabler either. This was doomed to fail but still they tried. Peridot tried, Lapis too, in her own way, and damn, it still ended.

II. GRIEF: “once you messed something up, it’s ruined for good and nothing will be able to grow again!”

This one’s pretty self explanatory: Is the classical post- breakup hopelessness. If you failed so bad at something you loved so much, then obviously nothing’s going to work out for you ever gain. Ever. You’re a ruiner so stick it, sucks to be you. 

III. ACCEPTANCE: Even if there was nothing we could do for that one patch of land, there’s still a whole earth blooming all around us!” 

The stages of grieving are well known, and Peridot is just inmerse in her process to actually see a light out, so is Steven the one in charge of exposition this time. 

The key here is “nothing we could have done for that specific patch of land”. So yeah, relationships don’t always work out. Sometimes, regardless of how much love you put in there, how much work and sweat, nothing grows. And that’s ok .

Some people are adequate for you, some aren’t. The same goes for you: It may be not work out due to compatibility issues, or maybe even you weren’t what they needed at a given time, like Peridot and Lapis. I’m sure they loved eachother, but they just weren’t adequate for each other at the moment. Doesn’t mean that any of them are doomed to solitude or damaged beyond repair, it just mean you couldn’t grow something with that specific person, in that particular patch of land.

IV. She’ll survive: “why don’t we try gardening in literally any other place? it’ll be easier than trying in the kindergarden…that dirt doesn’t care how green your thumb is.” 

The clousure of the metaphor is a message of hope: You just invested in one of the lands you could have never helped. That friend or partner that no matter how hard we tried, we could never get them out that hole. Peridot could have never heal Lapis single-handedly, Lapis had to actually want help first. Enabling her tendency to bury emotions was not going to help her. Without communication, without Lapis input and drive to get better, to deal with herself, Peridot could have folded herself in a million ways, and still would not have been able to safe her. 

I’m not saying Lapis is bad, I’m saying her relationship with Peridot wasn’t healthy for either of them. The narrative is saying break ups suck, but are sometimes inevitable. They are not foretelling your whole affective life, they’re not dooming you to loneliness, they’re just a painful but neccessary part of life, and maybe your green thumb did not work for that soil, but hey, it doesn’t mean is useless or broken, we should just garden somewhere else.

anonymous asked:

you know so much about bruce, please tell us some less know traits about him or just random facts or even headcanons please i love it when you talk about bruce!!!

oh my gosh, i love this ask. i’m glad you like it when i talk about bruce because i love talking about bruce and am always looking for the excuse to. ~just vengeance things~ include:

  • he is, actually, very sweet to civilians. he would sacrifice his identity if it meant saving a single person, and yes i can confirm his weakness is actually babies the ratio of times batman has held a baby compared to other characters is absolutely insane. and in BTAS, there’s an episode where he rescues a little girl and comes back to visit her just to make sure she’s okay. and in the BTAS tie-in comics, he rescued people’s pets, kept kids out of traffic, helped put out fires, the works. and also he went out of his way to find dick’s teddy bear
  • he has a sense of humor! i promise you! he just saves it for when no one’s looking, which is what he does with every trait someone might possibly misconstrue as cute. gotham knights made it canon that he talks to the bats in the batcave. he probably talks to them about cases when nobody else is around to bounce ideas off of
  • bruce paid for a class field trip after jason died because helping kids made the loss more bearable - he also visits troubled kids in canon and takes an active role in their life, to the point where one time he was concerned about kids he sponsored getting in a bad way and showed up literally at their house, because despite having 708983 responsibilities as batman he still makes time for that
  • this fucker has protocols in place for contacting him. the JL have to go through a goddamn system to get 5 minutes with him, and you just know it’s an excuse so bruce has to talk to people less, you just know it. also, this is in the same comic where plastic man recruits bruce to scare his wayward son straight, bruce is nervous about scaring a kid, and gives patrick an actual compliment (“of all of us, even clark, i thought you would make the best father. because i thought you would be the kind of father that would show his children that he loved them, instead of just telling them. i thought you would make them laugh all of the time.”) and encourages patrick to reconnect with his son
  • once put on enough make-up to trick people into thinking he was a guy dressed as bruce wayne who might possibly be batman, while he was actually bruce wayne who is actually batman. he disguised himself….. as himself. i fucking hate him. when oliver queen found out his identity how much do you wanna bet he was beyond pissed
  • i’m not kidding about the justice snuggle thing. he does actually do that, where he perches on something and puts his chin on his knees. he does it in front of gordon, and also the justice league. someone who refuses to show people he has 1 iota of personality is totally comfortable curling up like a small child. what even is this man
  • when tired and injured sometimes he just collapses wherever. in knightfall, he passes out by a dumpster, and a roof, and on the stairs. in the batman and robin 2011 run he makes it to a hallway and alfred finds him just like crashed on the ground. in batman: year one, he literally just sits in a chair casually bleeding all over everything until a bat crashes through his window
  • tries to tell people he cares for them in a really roundabout way filled with metaphors and lots of grand gestures. the only person who usually understands them is dick, and even then it’s like 75% of the time. if he actually says the word ‘love’, the vulnerability of the moment will cause him to keel over and die
  • master of the uncomfortable invasion of privacy. i cannot stress this enough. if you bought purple listerine instead of blue this week, he’s watching you. he has your number. he has a file on everything that breathes, and also he writes everything down. he has like 400 some files on hugo strange alone, he knows whether the man prefers coke or pepsi. also, three words: brother eye satellite 
  • whenever something emotionally traumatic happens he locks himself in the batcave for a while because he is a turtle (of justice) and the batcave is his shell
  • now, this one is mostly a headcanon i was talking with audrey about earlier (i say mostly because i’m 65% sure there’s a panel somewhere that made it canon that bruce helped train kyle, but my receipts folder is 5 miles long) but i do solidly believe bruce is one of the people who teaches inexperienced league members, along with other expertly trained league members like diana and dinah. not only because of his expertise in martial arts, but also because he’s had more experience than other heroes training individuals to be the best they possibly can. he is absolutely the tough love coach. he is the AP teacher that knocked off points for every little mistake and made you cry three times a week, but it was worth it when you got a 5 on that exam and were so far ahead of the curve in college the class was a breeze
  • summary: i love batman
  • a lot
  • like a whole lot
  • he’s trying his best

he is my very favorite

Have you ever had someone lay their fingers along the spaces between your ribs and squeeze? Really find those fleshy bits between the bones and just curl into them? I have. The thing is, you can’t help your natural reflex in reaction to that strange, visceral, intrusive feeling. Your body knows, “hey, I don’t think I should be touched there!” and so it flails wildly, almost manically, to protect your most vital organs, even if there’s no real threat.

My wife loves the spaces between my ribs, but has kindly refrained from squeezing them since I’ve asked her to stop. Still. I’m a nervous person, and the guard just goes up sometimes – can’t help it.

The other night, we were laying in bed and cuddling, and I was about on the brink of passing out while baby lay curled over me. Her hand rested on my chest, her head lay nestled between my shoulder and my chin, and I was smelling her hair – a vague scent of shampoo, still a little wet from the shower. Everything felt warm and right and peaceful, but for the fact that (as exhausted as I was) baby was like a shaken up soda can of hyperactive lesbian. She was happily chatting away when her hand traveled a little lower, then circled around my side and her fingertips moved into those vulnerable little dips.

“Noooooooo,” I whined, and I yanked her hand away.

“But I can’t sleep!” She protested, laying her leg over mine and lifting her head to give me that wide-eyed, entreating look. “I won’t squeeze! I just want to count your ribs! It’s soothing.” I can never deny her anything when she gives me that look. (She has very long eyelashes and very blue eyes. It’s my kryptonite.)

So I let her hand go, cautiously, and relaxed a little bit. She teases and jokes, but she never lies to me, so I knew she’d at least stop herself from squeezing even though I know how much she loves it. She moved her hand back over to my rib cage and I took in a breath.

“You know,” I offered as her fingertips began to dance gently over each individual rib, “you could count sheep instead.”

And baby chuckled lowly, snuggling closer, warm and soft and sweet. And then she proceeded to say the most terrifying thing I’ve ever heard come out of her mouth, in a voice that sounded like it should have been wafting inexplicably down the halls of an abandoned building.

“There are no sheep here,” she whispered, “but there are plenty of your bones.”

And somehow that simple statement was more instinctively horrifying than the feeling of fingers in the spaces between your ribs. Turns out, it inspired the same reaction. I flailed, and she laughed and laughed and laughed until I was laughing too.

It took us both a while to go to sleep.

exo’s albums are constantly SO varied and unique and look i literally stanned exo for this very reason but since the beginning theyve not only tried different sounds, genres, chord progressions, etc…but they make it sound GOOD. they make it cohesive and catchy and theyre not only unique individually but come together to harmonize so perfectly, so they add so much color to an otherwise good song and make it unimagineably great-there’s always that extra something in their songs that pushes it past previously explored boundaries like can you already feel how interesting yet palatable and wonderful the war album is gonna be because from these 20 second teasers i can already tell how hard everyone involved has worked on this damn album and im gonna cry now

How to befriend the signs

I think this is an area of life that we sometimes push to the wayside. Friendships are so fulfilling though! A friend can be there as a support system that expects enjoys you for who you are. We know that those who may become good friends will have planets that fall in your 3rd, 7th, or 11th houses. That doesn’t mean that you can’t have strong friendships with others of different signs.

I wanted to look more at different ways you can befriend someone based on their sun sign or sign dominance. This isn’t focusing on going into a deep friendship. These are just tips for getting the ball rolling. I’m basing all of these tips on the people I’ve befriended in my own life. Share any tips you have as well! I would love to see more meaningful, uplifting friendships.

Sun in Aries/Aries Dominance: So you’ve made a new Aries acquaintance. Be prepared for a highly energetic individual. One of the best ways to really get to know an Aries is to be open to adventure. If they know that you will go along with them on different outings, they will be more likely to include you. They want to know that you are playful. You don’t have to worry so much about being deep immediately. The first concern is that you know how to have a good time! Or that you know how to defuse a situation.

Sun in Taurus/Taurus Dominance: So you’ve made a new Taurus acquaintance. Taurus are ruled by Venus so they are a more reserved version of Libra. This means that they know how to be charming as well as reserved. Your friendship with them will be pleasant, if a little superficial until you truly get to know them. For the sake of making the first step towards becoming friends, make sure to be on time to the things that you do plan together. Infuse style into your activities such as nice dinners, outings on boats, etc. This may sound bad, but make it something they can brag about later.

Sun in Gemini/Gemini Dominance: So you’ve made a new Gemini acquaintance. Prepare to be a clown, whether it be a outrageous one or a sarcastic one. Let your humor shine through. They enjoy goofy people who are willing to talk. Don’t try too hard to cater to their humor. Just let your own gifts shine through. Also make sure to not be a flake. They want someone who will follow through on plans even if the Gemini has a less than stellar attendance record.

Sun in Cancer/Cancer Dominance: So you’ve made a new Cancer acquaintance. You’ll have to work hard to befriend the crab. Thankfully laughter is the best tonic, much like Cancer’s neighboring sign Gemini. Serve it up with a side of down to earth vibes and they’ll enjoy the dish that is you. It also wouldn’t hurt to actually go grab some food with them. The fastest way to their heart is through their stomach at happy hour at the cool new place you suggested. Laughter and Food is a pretty easy combo, but it just gets your foot in the door. You’ll have to wait another 1-3 years to be processed to the level of a friend who knows any personal details.

Sun in Leo/Leo Dominance: So you’ve made a new Leo acquaintance. Ask them questions. They want to talk and get to know you just as much as they want to share information about themselves. They love witty individuals so if you can make them laugh that’s an added bonus.  Be generous in your excitement. They will reciprocate with what you give them. Much like Taurus and Libra they’re gonna want to be able to have fun things to brag about as potential friendship building activities. A party or a tailgate could be a fun outing for the two of you.

Sun in Virgo/Virgo Dominance: So you’ve made a new Virgo acquaintance. Do practical activities together such as shopping or running errands. Activities that show that even when things are easy going, you’re able to be a friend they can count on. This is another sign that you have to take it slow with and show you can handle a conversation. They will want to make friends with someone who won’t embarrass them.

Sun in Libra/Libra Dominance: So you’ve made a new Libra acquaintance. No doubt you’ve already been charmed by them. Now you have to charm them. Libras are one of the easier signs to befriend. They love to bring groups together so just show them that you are receptive to the idea of making friends. You can do this by simply inviting them out or initiating conversation. This will encourage them to mirror you and return the favor.

Sun in Scorpio/Scorpio Dominance: So you’ve made a new Scorpio acquaintance.Be your most authentic self. But make sure your authentic self doesn’t come out full force. Leave a bit of mystery. Scorpios like to uncover their friends like layers because you’ll have to do the same with them. A good shortcut would be to ask them about their love life.

Sun in Sagittarius/Sagittarius Dominance: So you’ve made a new Sagittarius acquaintance. Focus on having fun, similar to an Aries. You want to show them that you can have a good time. Remember a good time for a Sagittarius doesn’t have to just be adrenaline based. It can be a new intellectual play or an art showing. Just make sure that there is lots of room to interact and makes jokes. 

Sun in Capricorn/Capricorn Dominance: So you’ve made a new Capricorn acquaintance. Capricorns are actually fairly easy going. You can befriend them by being funny and engaging. Doing one-on-one activities is the best way to show them they can have a good time with you. Keep the fun on the more classy side as well. Try exploring a new restaurant while grabbing lunch at work or try to pick up a new skill on the weekend to allow them to destress with their new friend! Basically show them that you’ll be useful in their life.

Sun in Aquarius/Aquarius Dominance: So you’ve made a new Aquarius acquaintance. The key word is to be as open minded as these individuals. They will be open to becoming your friend so long as they know that they can bring you around their social circle. Don’t be afraid to follow up with them and reach out to them to see if there are any events. They enjoy expanding their social network outwards. They love bringing in new friends that they think will uplift the group.

Sun in Pisces/Pisces Dominance: So you’ve made a new Pisces acquaintance. They will enjoy fun conversations that hint on a more playful, romantic side. They love the whimsical parts of life so make sure that they know they’ll find a dreamy friend in you. Whether that be in the way you talk with them or the thing you do. You want to add a dream like element to their life. Accept them for who they and be gentle in your communication with them. There is a good chance that they will enjoy partying/drinking so don’t be afraid to invite them out!

Harsh Venus Aspects ♀

Sun conjunct Venus: Not typically a disharmonious aspect and only applicable if the sun/Venus conjunction is afflicted by other circumstances. Difficulty creating cohesive interactions that benefit the development of the ego and possibly friction with masculine figures. Exhibits an attractive personality of tact and captivating charisma and inclined to exercise artistic practices. Charm can be used as a form of manipulation. Apt to be physically indulgent, lazy and self-concerned. Can embody and identify (sun) with the Handheld Mirror (Venus ♀), and reflect the character of other people, which makes an excessively accommodating character where they are unable to express themselves individually/genuinely.

Moon opposite/square Venus: Unable to emotionally relate to others and develop harmonious relationships with the mother, sister or feminine figures. The natural absorber and reflector of light (moon ◯) internalizes the Handheld Mirror (Venus ♀) so often reflects and mimics the emotions of others, disregarding their own emotional needs. The sense of creativity, music and imagination are strong and possibly used as coping mechanisms. A need to love and be loved. Feels they need relationships, so can experience moments of melancholy during loneliness. Apt to be indulgent and an exhibit clinginess/neediness. Creates superficial and unmeaningful relationships with others for the sake of wanting to be loved rooted from a fear of abandonment.

Mercury conjunct Venus:  Not typically a disharmonious aspect and only applicable if the mercury/Venus conjunction is afflicted by other circumstances. The way of thinking is optimistic, sweet and refined and the individual is inclined to the arts, music and literature. The conscious perception of realistic love may be flawed and idealized and the way of thinking can accommodate more to others then themselves. A superficial tongue and thought trend where lying may become a problem for the sake of wanting to be adored by everyone. A strong yearning for social connection with love always on the mind, yet contradicts themselves by tending to lose interest in interpersonal relationships erratically. 

Mars opposite/conjunct/square Venus: The anima and animus struggle (mars) to reach harmony (Venus). This is the romantic adventurer who possesses unyielding principles of justice, diplomacy and equity. If sexually inclined, enjoys the fusion of sex and love. There is much ambition regarding Venusian matters such as money, love and pleasure. The pleasure principle however, is prone to compulsion such as impulse buying or reckless sexual urges that must be consciously balanced. Attracted to danger. The individual wants to be independent, so could aggressively reject interpersonal and social relationships where they may feel trapped, dispirited and uninspired, even though they desire it so much. Apt to be the partner who leads and fights for love, yet also the partner who dictates, controls, bullies and causes strife within relationships. Venus is the handheld mirror (♀ reflection and projection) so they may attract partners of combative essence. Self-isolating due to the feeling that they only need to love themselves, yet self-antagonize in frustration when they wonder why love does not come their way.

Jupiter opposite/square Venus: The two favorable benefics contacting each other regardless of circumstance seldom creates friction, yet the love (Venus) and charitable (Jupiter) principles are swelled dramatically and the individual asks too much or gives too much in relationships. There is a constant search for “god” within everyone they meet, creating unrealistic idealizations of people, who are only human. The character is jovial and free-spirited where they are apt to see relationships as mere one-time adventures as opposed to devoting union, creating one who wishes to escape from relationships in fear their freedom is in jeopardy and not realizing that one can free their heart with others. Nonetheless, the character is good-natured, adventurous and big-hearted. Much emphasis on indulging in pleasure and focusing on mundane discoveries, such as desiring ample material wealth and valuing physical appearance, unaware that inner discovery is the “god” they are looking for, where genuine richness and appreciation rest within. 

Saturn opposite/conjunct/square Venus: The love principle is frozen in time and takes an eternity to thaw and realize its truest potential. The temperament and response to affection is awkward, withdrawn and reserved. Likewise, the expression of love or affection is slow to surface and the individual can experience emotional delays when reciprocating love. There are ambitions of material security and self-cultivation, but a fear of reaching for them. Saturn bestows a sense of abandonment to the loving nature and the individual may feel as though they have never received love that provided guidance to a dignified sense of self-worth. The coldness, distance and detachment that was projected onto them is projected onto others. When they are open to affection and social interaction, there is a high tendency to bitterly judge, criticize and minimize received affections which further restrict their own loving nature. With time however, (Saturn) the flower blossoms (Venus).

Uranus opposite/conjunct/square Venus: The character is buzzing with unique charisma. There is a liking to the unusual and the individual typically has a quirky aesthetic sense. Acts of affection and love are unconventional and they are prone to experiencing sudden upsets within relationships due to their inconsistency. Outwardly magnetizing yet inwardly high-strung, vacillating and temperamentally emotional causing unpredictable behavior. A tendency to get bored with people and their routine which creates a desire for thoughtless and irresponsible recklessness as a form of seeking change. Needs to practice giving as much space and freedom as they demand for themselves. Wants a connective social circle and unifying relationships yet will refuse to give themselves completely for the sake of preserving their independence and individuality.

Neptune opposite/conjunct/square Venus: The love principle (Venus) is dissolved, unclear (Neptune) so the person can feel uncertain and clueless concerning all themes of Love. The individual is sacrificial to their loved ones or has unrealistic and idealized expectations that their loved ones should sacrifice for them. Apt to fall for those who are unavailable or who need saving, bringing pain in their relationships. Can use art, daydreaming, music, spirituality and other creative expressions as a form of escapism. Inspirational to others and emits an alluring, captivating presence. Often projects their fantasies onto other people, imagining the ‘perfect’ partner and likewise their projections are reflected (♀) and they are romanticized by others. Apt to indulge and find pleasure (Venus) in their self-martyrdom (Neptune). Addicted to the idea of love but does not manifest the idea into action beyond dreams. Could be unknowingly deceptive; possesses unusual values; and shows inconsistency with resources. A desire for celestial union. The loving spirit (Venus) contacts the higher octave of love (Neptune) and so the loving nature is either elevated (Divine, Universal Love) or drowned (Delusional, Suffering Love).  

Pluto opposite/conjunct/square Venus: Self-fulfilling prophecy that love=doom and the power of the handheld mirror projects (♀) this attitude onto others and therefore makes doom happen in relationships; ruin comes true only because of their antagonistic and distrustful perceptions regarding love. The mirror is dual, what an individual sends out is what an individual will receive back. Sultry, strange compelling charm and an ability to master social situations. Can see sex as a beautiful art form. Must let go of possessive and jealous behaviors. Can abuse the love principle and use it to indulge in their obsessions: power, money, control and pleasure. Demand the utmost privacy yet infiltrates, probes and invades the privacy of others. Needs to practice monitoring their lust, greed and other compulsive desires. Deeply longs for love and being empowered by it, but refuse to acknowledge that only until they are truly loving themselves (until they surrender themselves genuinely to love) will love transform and embolden their spirit.

If you love him, respect his culture (3/?): real names for lance (sh//aladins don’t interact) 

“a performer will often take a stage name because their real name is considered unattractive, dull, or unintentionally amusing, is difficult to pronounce or spell, has been used by another notable individual, or projects an undesired image. In the past, a stage name was often used when a performer’s real name was considered to denote a specific ethnicity that faced potential discrimination.“

Time for a simple post about my boy Logan this time.

So, upon rewatching Moving On Part 2 for the 17,000th time, my brain finally decided to connect two small scenes, one from MOP2 and one from My Negative Thinking.

Consider this, Thomas is a very creative individual: theatre, Youtuber, former Viner… he left behind his education to pursue those things. That’s not a bad thing of course but when you consider the Sides, that must mean that Logan feels a bit… forgotten. 

Moving On was definitely great character development for everyone. But on the front for Logan, we get this small scene here when Thomas says he’ll consider taking an educational course.

You can see that Logan nearly begins to cry. His bottom lip shakes and yet he manages to keep his straight face. 

Why is this relevant other than Logan is happy about it?

Because Thomas is going to learn something new and what did Logan say previously about Thomas learning things?

He feels loved again. All from that one small promise from Thomas. Of course Thomas cares and loves all of the aspects of his personality but you know, sometimes it’s nice to have it vocalized too.

Such a small thing yet so important to Logan. Gosh I love him so much. :’)
