so much wasted potential

anonymous asked:

You've become so holier-than-thou since you started buying into the bullshit that is religion. I can't believe you fell for that trash, and you aren't an intellectual for worshipping rapists.You used to have so much potential, what a fucking waste.

I’m sorry that whatever experiences you’ve had with religion cause you to be this frightened when you see someone’s beliefs changing.And I mean that sincerely. I have not raised myself above others due to my religious beliefs - the first place this would have showed up was my marriage. If there is something I’ve posted that you’ve interpreted this way feel free to give me specifics, but i get the strong feeling this is more disappointment that I don’t believe like you do rather than anything I actually did.

anyone else kinda terrified you’ll never be able to hold a job in the future because of your mental illness

kara and maggie things we’ve been robbed of:

-the “shovel talk”, which would be kara attempting to be intimidating, but maggie is so understanding and straightforward about her intentions with alex that they end up just hanging out and bonding instead.

-supergirl showing up to maggie’s crime scenes unannounced just to “check in” and maggie realizing that kara keeps an eye on her when she’s on the job bc she cares about her safety.

-kara talking about game night and assuming maggie will be there because she’s part of the family now. maggie’s heart swelling at having people who love her.

-kara being all up in sanvers’ business all the time bc she has no concept of boundaries. alex being semi annoyed, and maggie being amused.

-maggie giving kara sound advice about something and kara telling her she’s grateful that now she has two sisters to look to for help.

-both of them getting together for a regular tv night, exchanging theories for the outcome of the show. maggie sitting at her desk the next day loving all the “ooh but what if…” texts from kara.

-kara helping maggie set up a perfect date or surprise for alex. maggie thinking kara will for sure ruin the surprise because of her giggles, but she’s better at keeping secrets than maggie thought.

-kara blowing out her powers one day and maggie not passing up the opportunity to try and beat supergirl at arm wrestling.

-maggie and kara getting to know each other, protecting/supporting each other, and slowly becoming sisters like they should be.

It’s been 6 years and it still baffles me that OUAT had every opportunity to do something truly amazing and make the birth mom fall in love with the adoptive mom and let them be a happy family and raise their son together, but instead they just decided to go with the most boring hetero romance story that’s been told a million times before and is neither modern nor original. 

Reason 5439236 the HP movies irk me, particularly DH.

In the book, Hermione dances with precisely one person, Ron. They have a lovely time, and they are making strides in their relationship. It also serves to magnify the emotional impact of Ron’s leaving, as well as his return and redemption.

In the movie, Hermione dances with not one, but two people. Krum at the wedding (the scene was cut, but featured a jealous-looking Ron), and Harry in the tent. Basically, the exact opposite of what happens in the book. All this served to do was make Ron look like the bad guy (as always), lessen the emotional impact of his leaving on Hermione, and also hide the fact that Ron was really maturing and trying to change his relationship with Hermione from friendship to something more. The Harry/Hermione dance was so OOC for Harry as well (I dislike that scene with a passion).

Thanks for robbing us of actually seeing Ron and Hermione dancing together, which ACTUALLY happened. Instead, precious screen time was wasted on nonsense.

Just another example of the anti-Romione bias in the films (not to mention an overall lack of understanding of the characters and unnecessary changes to major plot points).

Don’t even get me started on Malfoy Manor. Or Voldemort’s death scene. Or the burning down of The Burrow. Or Harry & Ginny’s entire relationship. I’ll stop now.

from dusk till dawn ladies appreciation

Lapis was also a character that would’ve been a really great morally grey character. Someone who’s fueled by trauma and hate doing bad things in the name of revenge (holding down Jasper, endangering the planet by stealing the ocean, etc)

But just like Rose, the narrative sides with her so much that we just see Lapis as a poor damsel in distress who did nothing wrong. And the one time it doesn’t (i.e. Barn Mates) it’s completely unfair and unjustified for her to be repeatedly called out like this.

honestly i’m so up for gay dc crackships like someone could tell me bane and captain cold are dating and i’d be like HELL YEAH THEY ARE power couple!!!!!! but as soon as people start hitting me up with those straight crackships it’s like… Do Not. end this suffering

Emma & Regina || Swan Queen || Sounds Like Hope.

The most beautiful, perfect video of swan queen I’ve ever seen! It really captures the essence of swan queen and gave me all the feels. Thank you so much @tokeepuhappy you are a treasure!

After years of seeing references to the Aaron Ehasz shipping Zutara, I finally set out to find out more about this, and all of the old feels are back. So, so much wasted potential. Such a great, compelling story that could have been told–that never will be told. And not just the Zuko and Katara stuff. Iroh backstory? Toph working on her issues with her parents? Aang grappling with the consequences of energybending? Ty Lee’s airbending decent being relevant? Sign me up!

I just…ergghhhh! I am pretty sure I will forever be in mourning for Ehasz’s Book Four.

how I see the signs and what I want them to know
  • (side note - View of a Virgo rising, Leo sun in the 12th, Libra moon in 2nd, mercury Cancer in 11th, venus Leo in 12th, mars Leo in 11th)
  • Aries: was once my best friend, she made literally everything in my life brighter and always helped me to just enjoy things and stop worrying all the time. Also great hugs. Just simply has that energy, wherever it may be - physically, mentally, staying up until you binge watched that show, giving you their last money so you can get yourself something to eat before you starve to death, always down for a talk and a walk even if they had a packed schedule. Please don't miss out on times when you just have to take a day off to get your beautiful and strong energy back. I care about your health so please don't forget to eat properly and don't miss out on that quality time if needed.
  • Taurus: a girl from my drama class and my little sisters moon sign, I am just so in love with your sense for aesthetic. Total sunshines. I feel like I can always rely on you, super compassionate and knows how to make you feel comfortable when youre not. I love that when you have a goal in your mind, you will give your everything to achieve that! Also so humble but like I want you so desperately to know how beautiful I think you are!! I enjoy your company a lot. Please don't be afraid of changes, I know that's such a mainstream thing to write for Taurus but I really do believe that maybe sometimes you need to be reminded that life can also begin at the end of your comfort zone.
  • Gemini: a guy and a girl from biology class, I am literally stunned at how much these people know. Eloquent fluffballs. I could listen to you spreading knowledge 24/7, make great jokes in my opinion and just kind of knows... everyone?? Get along with so many people, can be very chill but also full of energy when they're talking about things they are interested in. Also fun-fact kings and queens. Please remind yourself to stay loyal to your true friends, you may know many people with whom you get along with so well and for sure everyone is intersting in their own way, but it's very possible to feel lonely in a crowd. Your closest friends will always get you out of that and help you, I promise.
  • Cancer: a close friend of mine, literally the most caring person I've ever met. Actual comedians. I don't know I just straight up fell in love with your humour. All the Cancers I know have or had some extreme physical problems going on, please get well soon if you read this and you're also not feeling well. Mentally on the next level, strong and kind of unbreakable. Don't hide their feelings because they just know that when you bottle up your feelings it's never going to end well. They just get you and will be there for you no matter what. Please take care of yourself just as well as you do with your friends and family, you are a true blessing and it's definitely okay to rant or cry or just let it all out.
  • Leo: my english teacher and a guy I used to be close with, very often completely misunderstood and taken for granted, which can lead to unhealthy behaviour. Will make you feel great after a plain shit day. I strive to be this talented at just expressing myself or being confident, even if you just want the world to think you are confident when you're actually not. Cuddly queens and kings. Better not hurt their pride because it took them a lot of time to actually get to that level and in a world where people hate on you for loving yourself, to them it feels like, despite all their work, they are not worth of loving themselves. Please don't forget that although sometimes it's hard to look in the mirror and like what you see, there are caring and warm-hearted people who love you just the way you are.
  • Virgo: a girl in my class I simply adore, I always annoy you with my endless compliments. Kind of just in love with these down-to-earth and sweet people. Either super chill or worried a lot, I wish I could just hug you until you feel less stressed. Smol but strong beans you can learn a lot from. So reliable, I actually hate doing group projects and always want to do everything myself but since you share that opinion we created something I was really proud of and now we always do them together. Please remember that passion is something you shouldn't be ashamed of, you simply don't have to be because it's something you love and your needs are valid. Also dreaming big, it's possible, especially for you so why not?
  • Libra: a girl I recently got to know and am already completely amazed by, literal social butterflies who sometimes only know in hindsight how much they enjoyed the company of someone because they adapt so easily and it's rare to find someone where you can just simply be yourself. Love how they view life and that they make me want to talk more. Very open and you never feel excluded because they just know how to include everyone. Please don't forget to remind yourself who you truly are and not to lose yourself in another person, because there really is only one you no matter how good you are at adapting to literally every social situation, you are amazing and I want you to be comfortable as well.
  • Scorpio: my dad and my ex boyfriend's mom, two very caring peole in their own way. I always love how sharp their sarcasm can be. Can comfort extremely well when they want to. So many secrets and things to know about them that I can lose myself in them wanting to explore whats actually behind their shell. Teaches you life lessons. Please don't forget that humans aren't flawless and that's completely okay. You don't have to hold onto old grudges, communication is key and talking about these things, confronting these people who did you wrong will help you grow as a person.
  • Sagittarius: an old friend of mine, very cute people who get interested in so many things and they are so versatile and adventurous I absolutely love their lively nature. Memes™. Total dorks you can fall for in a second. Are actually the best partners to just talk to about anything because they will be interested and share their opinion with you. Please remind yourself that cutting off people can be a very wise decision and you don't have to keep up with everyones shit if that's just not what you're in for.
  • Capricorn: I am literally so attracted to these people it's unreal, although I kind of always think that they don't like me...... anyways, my bigger twin sisters are caps and they are humble souls who really had to fight for a lot in life sadly. So proud of you. Keep up with the hard work, you really deserve everything. So realistic and pure I have heart eyes. Supportive and extremely loyal. Will stand up for you if you need it. Straight face™ but still manages to make even the most serious people laugh. Please remind yourself to not overdo it with the work, take a day off to relax and let yourself go maybe, even if it's hard - with the right people you don't ever have to be afraid of being yourself.
  • Aquarius: my ex boyfriend whom I had a crush on for like 4 years, teached me great life lessons. Will always have a weakness for aquas, they just attract me so much, how much of a fluffy dork can you be tbh? Capacity of acceptance is incredible. So much fun to be with. Are kind of just good at everything? You can talk to them about anything, it won't feel weird, they won't question it and just talk to you about that topic. So friendly, an underrated trait in my opinion, just complete and simple friendliness you enjoy to the fullest. Please remind yourself to let people not only see your amazing shell but also your stunning core, there are people who love to talk about the same things you love and nothing about you is weird, you are special and I absolutely love it.
  • Pisces: a very sweet guy I've been texting with for the past months, very open minded and also have that sensitivity I strive to have. Very inspirational smol puppy. Actual daydreamers™, may be late to school but love deeply and would never neglect your love. Kind of hate almost everything that's planned out? (I'm sorry I just love to plan things out) will hug you no matter what. Does not fear to dream big, is very talented at artsy stuff in my opinion. Please don't forget that even if it seems hard, and yes our school system is kind of very bad,we get to have that education and your dreams will be reality if you work hard enough to achieve them. You have so much potential, please don't ever waste it.
