sometimes i just really miss this show

Goth and Identity

So its been a while since i last blogged about goth, but sure enough i have discovered something within the subculture that has again left me torn between multiple sides. I’m talking about issues pertaining to identity. Identity is something very personal to each and every individual and it seems that a lot of people are again choosing sides when it comes to identity and how goths identify with the subculture.

Today i want to discuss these sides and where i stand between them. I also want to discuss some of the good and bad of having each of these minds sets about identity.

To begin, i want to discuss the goths who try too hard. So you’re one of us who really enjoys and cares about the subculture. You love the music, you also might be really into the fashion and it shows. But sometimes you might go overboard. I’m talking about the goths who get so caught up in being goth and proving just how goth they are that they almost miss the point of it. They let goth dictate their lives so much that they sometimes suppress parts of themselves that they feel make them less goth. This is not a good way to be. Of course there are goths out there that naturally love goth so much that it seems like they go out of their way to express it, and that’s fine. Its the goths that force themselves into tiny boxes and actually go out of their way to express it who are in trouble.

Say for instance you like goth music but Bauhaus isn’t really your taste, but you feel pressure to listen to them and make yourself like them because you think that it will make you more goth or that other goths will dislike you if you don’t. This is toxic and the only one you’re hurting is you. You don’t need to like every goth band just like you don’t need to backcomb your hair or wear authentic winklepickers to be goth. This is where people let goth get in the way of their own identities. Sure in order to be goth, you should probably know certain bands and care about the subculture, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop watching Steven Universe or throw away all your unicorn plushies just because those things aren’t stereotypically goth.

Goth is a label for people to identify with. Its not meant to rule your entire life. Ive said it before and I’ll say it again goths don’t like the things they like because they’re goth, they are goth because they naturally like those things. This does not mean you have to abandon all the other things you like just because those other things aren’t goth, this also means that you don’t have to like every aspect of the subculture to be a part of it.

Now moving on to another side of the subculture that has sort of a different way of looking at goth and identity, I’m going to call these people the “Goth is Goth type” These are the goths who believe that goth is simply a one word label and that substyles of goth are pointless or negative.

Now if you’ve been in the subculture for a while you probably already know that goth has multiple substyles and these substyles didn’t really start popping up until after the 80′s. Before then there was just goth and all it took to be goth was listening to goth music. So its understandable that most of these “Goth is Goth types” are elder goths who were around before goth started breaking off into substyles.

Many of these “Goth is Goth types” argue that substyles are nothing more than superficial fashion genres and that substyles automatically restrict you to a little box. What they mean when they say “goth is goth” is that it doesn’t matter how you dress, if you’re goth you’re goth and you shouldn’t let a substyle get in the way and dictate how you should express yourself through goth. And to an extent, i do understand this. I do understand where these goths are coming from. But i don’t think these goths are really taking the time to analyze it even further.

There are goths out there that dress in multiple substyles but there are goths out there that dress in only one or two. And some of these goths dress in a particular style, not simply for superficial reasons but because that style actually reflects their own identity. For example, there are some goths who call themselves Victorian goths and dress in nothing but Victorian goth fashion. Many of these goths actually have interests rooted in the Victorian era. Their favorite past times might be visiting Victorian themed exhibits at the museum and having Victorian inspired tea parties. So for them, Victorian goth just best reflects their personal tastes and identities. So you might think that by telling a goth that they shouldn’t limit themselves to identifying with a particular style is helping them to better express their identities,but it’s actually doing the opposite. For many goths, it’s more than just a substyle, it’s almost it’s own mini subculture that people can identify with that’s still a part of goth.

Not everyone feels like they need to put themselves into boxes or identify with one thing in particular but some do. Some take comfort in it. Lets also not forget that not every goth is neurotypical. Some goths may have mental illness and some may take comfort in compartmentalizing things. It might help them to break goth down into substyles and put them into neat little boxes that they can identify with.

Also breaking goth down into even smaller subgroups within the subculture is not always a bad thing. Some goths may argue that having subgroups is negative because some goths are only befriending other goths of a particular substyle instead of making friends with goths of all types and this is true to an extent. It is very important that we put certain differences aside and make friends with all goths, BUT sometimes its just easier and less stressful to make friends with goths that dress like you. Why? Because you already know that you probably have more than one thing in common. Sure it would be great if a romantic goth made friends with a cyber goth but if their tastes are totally different then they may have trouble attending clubs together or hanging out because their hobbies and music tastes just clash too much.

So for the most part how goths identify with the subculture really is subjective and not as black and white as some goths like to think. Whether you choose to dress goth, listen to every goth band or experiment with substyles, its important to respect everyone and create a balance so you aren’t letting goth dictate who you are. Its okay to care about goth and express it in every way possible but only if that’s what you really want to do and you aren’t sacrificing other parts of yourself to do it. Its also okay to enjoy non goth things and express yourself through specific substyles that you enjoy. Yes, you should make friends with goths of all types but its important to remember that you choose your friends and if you are more comfortable with making goth friends who dress and act similar to you that’s fine, the only one who should have a say on the friends you make is you.

The bottom line is everyone identifies with goth a little differently and that’s okay as long as you respect others and don’t let it change who you are. Don’t let goth or anyone in the subculture dictate your life or how you choose to express yourself. Self identity is important and you should never let goth change it.

you know sometimes I think about how Miss Fame is now signed with IMG models Paris and she’s actually making it as a model in drag, and how Violet Chachki was actually hired to perform burlesque, her specialty, while in drag at fucking Dita Von Teese’s show this past January, and how Adore Delano is achingly close to really breaking into the mainstream as a singer, and I just get really emotional that they’re actually making it? these sweet and talented girls are making it as drag queens and it’s incredible

Harry changing up these songs every single time is such a credit to his vocals and musicality. Carolina has had three separate moods if you compare the The Today Show, the Garage (closest to the album) and now The LateLate Show.

Sometimes I forget what a work horse he is. On stage, he is SO eager to please, to show off and to go off. And even though I see ppl missing ho!Harry and dancer!Harry, I really love that these smaller stages force him to just stay put and connect with the music. Now he is picking his freestyle moments to emphasize certain lyrics, now he is using inflection, now he is changing up keys and tempo, now he is playing an instrument!

No doubt he will strut, grind and drop it low on tour. That shit is important too. I just like hearing the songs and seeing all the subtle choices he’s making just as much.

FUCK ME! Can Rich just direct all the episodes from now on because that was the best SPN episode I think I have ever seen. Jesus Christ, did that just happen? Like sometimes with SPN I can zone out a bit and it’s fine but with this you literally couldn’t zone out because you’d miss something super important, not that you’d want to zone out because Chuck was that intensely amazing. Like did Rich really do that? Hands down the best director that show has ever seen. I will never get over it, fuck.

taemin in college
  • double major in criminology and japanese, minor in latin 
  • whenever he tells anyone his minor they’ll always ask him to say something and he’s just like spouting random stuff like “water, vengeance, rock duck, veni vedi vici, amen” (”did you just say amen?? was that a prayer??” / taemin: *sweating* “yeah”) 
  • tbh saying amen is just a reflex from when he was an altar boy 
  • rides a longboard around campus
  • occasionally his cap will fly off while he’s cruising and he’ll have to backtrack and awkwardly trudge after it (”omg pls don’t roll away hat i’m coming back for you”) 
  • he spent a really long time practicing ollies in the quad and now he randomly kicks up his board on his way to class like nbd he’s just super cool
  • his backback is HUGE 
  • he just keeps EVERYTHING in there so he’ll never forget anything (jonghyun: omg just get yourself a planner or something and keep notes / taemin: no. never. it’s better this way) 
  • honestly getting things in that bag is like playing tetris and you never know what he’ll pull out of there??? onew’s homework (”omfg i was looking for that everywhere”), a bag of chocolate chips (onew: this is my compensation), multiple chargers, rolls of tape, ah there’s his syllabus, oh his rosary!!! 6v6
  • he’s that kid who ALWAYS loses his student id and people post in his class facebook page like “taemin i found your card again” 
  • works at the bookstore and when he sees minho coming in, immediately turns around and walks in the opposite direction bc he loves him and all but minho buys in like bulk and he does not get paid enough for this no siree 
  • does not own a single uni sweater/shirt himself despite the 15% discount his friends abuse 
  • until jong gave him a giant uni sweatshirt for christmas that he… rang up for him?? but it’s actually pretty comfy and he wears it on exam days bc the long sleeves are comforting and could absorb tears if it comes down to that 
  • whenever key walks into his dorm he’s always watching some anime (it’s usually one punch man lately) and he always insists it’s ~studying~
  • also his room always so messy omg like boy do you unpack by opening your suitcase and just chucking your clothes all around like a tornado??? 
  • hurricane taemin 
  • but seriously there’s no floor showing 
  • minho: where do you study in your room?? / taemin: i just kinda *motions at the mess in a vague manner* / minho: that gives me literally zero answers
  • he studies a lot with key at the cafe jonghyun works at (for the free coffee / jong: literally you guys only come here for my coffee and not for me / taekey: … well yeah / jong: you’re both banned forever bye) bc he likes the buzz of other people talking 
  • can’t really focus when it’s too quiet  
  • does really well in classes despite sometimes missing a few bc he just straight up forgot that it was during a certain timeslot (key: how / taemin: things just happen!!! it’s totally plausible that you’d forget sometime!!! / onew: we have 5 weeks of school left) 
  • people sometimes forget that he’s also a crim major also but he’s genuinely interested in forensic science and piecing together what happened and how 
  • almost always knows the answer when the prof ask a question but doesn’t really participate unless called on and he could talk for a WHILE once he gets past the initial stuttering start 
  • honestly every time he has to present in class considers taking a shot to loosen his nerves because dear god he hATES public speaking 
  • he can’t bc asian glow is so real 6///6

anonymous asked:

Myungsooooooooo please ^^ - squishymyungsoo

Okay @squishymyungsoo and @blacksuffering your request has been heard and here I am to fulfill it!

And by happy circumstance, this concides with Myungsoo’s 26th birthday!

Let’s start out with full honesty here: When people hear INFINITE, people think of Kim Myungsoo. Everyone knows INFINITE’s L, usually for his striking visuals. But I really want to show the different sides of him that others might sometimes miss.

1. VOCAL IMPROVEMENT

Myungsoo debuted in 2010 as INFINITE’s visual member, and it’s not hard to see why. The boy has all-natural, flower boy good looks as if he has stepped out of the pages of a manga. But what may often be overlooked is his vocal ability. He may not have the most lines in songs, but especially in recent albums he’s proven that he’s more than just INFINITE’s visual. He even appeared on King Of Masked Singer and shocked everyone with how good he was. Watch the grand reveal and revel in his lovely voice below:

Then there is his special solo stage from INFINITE’s concert, the Korean version of Love of My Life:

What I’m trying to say here is this: look how much Myungsoo has worked on his voice!! Coming from debut when he was often overlooked as ‘just handsome’; he has overcome all of the negative comments regarding his abilities as a performer and proved to everyone that he can sing, and boy does he do it well!

2. ACTOR L

Where to begin, where to begin? Myungsoo has been acting in dramas since 2011, where he made his acting debut over in Japan. This drama - Jiu - gave us the still iconic line “I’M HERE!”. Since then he has been cast in Shut Up Flower Boy Band, The Master’s Sun, Cunning Single Lady, My Lovely Girl, The Day After We Broke Up/One More Time and more. Not only does he slay everyone with his visuals, he’s proven to be a talented actor, able to portray many different characters with ease. My personal favourite drama Myungsoo has starred in is Shut Up Flower Boy Band, and if you haven’t seen it then pleeeeease do yourself a favour and watch it! 

3. STRANGE LITTLE CUTIEPIE

Myungsoo may have this ‘cool city guy’ ‘chic man’ image, but those of us who’ve followed INFINITE closely for a while know that there is a difference between his L Cosplay and the real Kim Myungsoo. Although he has incredible charisma and stage presence, he’s still a little strange, let’s be honest here. Just a few examples I can think of are as follows: all of this mess on Sesame Player, these clips of him falling over, the time he hit Dongwoo with a water bottle, when he fell over on Birth of a Family, changing from L to Myungsoo and just this incredible image-ruining moment on INFINITE Showtime:

4. AND EVERYTHING ELSE!

There were three main points about Kim Myungsoo, INFINITE’s amazing, strange and talented visual. But what else? Well, let me tell you:

  • Myungsoo plays guitar and he’s good at it and it makes everyone’s hearts flutter tbh
  • He has a really pretty cat called Byul who looks like him
  • Myungsoo does a lot of charity work, but usually keeps it pretty lowkey. Here he is at a home for disadvantaged children
  • His love of photography!!! Myungsoo has released two photo essay books so far, L’s Bravo Viewtiful 1 & 2. They’re full of all his own photos and doodles and comments and they’re absolutely gorgeous. He really has an eye for photography and you can even see that from the arty shots on his instagram
  • He went through a lot of hardships in the past, including a dating ‘scandal’ in 2013 which he spoke about in INFINITE’s movie Grow. Thankfully the other members and the fans stood by him at this time and he got through it
  • He chose the stage name L because of the character in the manga/anime Death Note - he looked a little like him when he had longer hair

And so we have reached the end of this little post full of love for Myungsoo. Hope you guys enjoyed it and #Happy26thLkimDay !! Please give Myungsoo lots of love, ‘cause he’s a precious button who needs it.

Nct 127+Kun,Ten's reaction to their s/o cuddling with them

A/N: this whole post is so fluffy and just jskdks, i’m emo omg ahh,, hope you enjoy reading!!

Taeil:

As someone really soft and is a literal cinnamon bun, he’d blush immediately and have this shy but bright smile on his face. He’d let you wrap your arms around his body and wouldn’t say much, his hands rubbing your back slowly as you lay your head on his chest. Steals small little pecks on your forehead as well and gets really gentle and calm.

Johnny:

Smol excited giant kid!! Would giggle to himself a lot and hug you tightly too, calling you cute. Sometimes he loves teasing you too, “I see someone’s being clingy today”, but highkey loves it himself, he hopes that you do it to him everyday. Rests his head on top of yours and his arms would never leave your body, and he always waits for you to fall asleep first before he does.

Taeyong:

Doesn’t show it as often but he loves it a lot. Most of the time he acts cool and would just give you a small smile, pulling you in to a small hug without saying much, but on other days when he"s feeling super clingy and affectionate he gives a really bright smile and would even whine too, pulling you as close as he can to himself, snuggling his face in your hair. Turns into a literal softie too when he hugs you.

Yuta:

Takes advantage of the situation and changes the whole purpose and perspective, “Babe are you hinting something *smirks and lifts up the hem of his shirt*”, but mainly because he loves teasing you and seeing your shocked expression. But most of time he gives you his big and healing killer smile, and hugs you so tightly you have difficulty breathing. As someone who loves cuddling and hugging, he’s also the one suggesting to do it instead of you tbh.

Kun:

Is really sweet about it and never forgets to say “I love you” every time you take the initiative to hug/cuddle him. Like Taeil, he lets you do whatever you need to as he smiles at you lovingly and proudly, his arms wrapped warmly around yours. Although both of you don’t have much conversation while cuddling, it never fails to calm you down or cheer you up because just being with him is enough. (i miss him sm what are you doing)

Doyoung:

Found it really cute and would always give in to you because only you have the power to make him weak. He loves giving you small little kisses on your cheeks/forehead, and sometimes on the lips, as he stares at you in admiration. Sometimes, he’d even sing some songs for/to you, as his hands pat your back slowly. Although he doesn’t tell you often, he shows his love and affection by his actions and isn’t afraid to shower you with kisses and hugs.

Originally posted by nctinfo

Ten:

Like Johnny, another small excited child. Would blush a little as you hug him, but most of the time he’s too busy giggling and laughing so you don’t pay attention. He loves it so much, he whines and complains when you don’t cuddle with him at days, “Babe do you not love me anymore? Where’s my hug”. Loves wrapping his legs around/on top of yours and resting his head on yours.

Originally posted by sichengz

Jaehyun:

He looks forward to this time of the day most of the day and would always pull you close to himself when you start hugging him. Gives his innocent and bright cute smile and giggle too, saying out small little random sweet words to you, “You smell nice today”, “You’re so cute”. He loves playing with your body (it sounds so wrong but no), like twirling your hair, poking your cheeks and rubbing your back.

WinWin:

Another soft bun, he’d smile immediately and blush a lot whenever you hug him, his head resting on top of your head or shoulders. He doesn’t talk much but loves giving you small little pecks on your cheek, and calling you cute or beautiful. He’s so comfortable in the position he’d probably alays fall asleep first, his arm still wrapped around your waist.

Originally posted by 1jeonquk

Mark:

Blushes like mad!!! And becomes so flustered and shy, he doesn’t say anything and lets you hug him. His arms would awkwardly find their way around your waist, and you’d see him giggle slightly to himself too. Would probably hum a song to you and play with your hair, his cheeks still flushed red. Only sometimes though, he’d kiss your forehead and whisper a small “i love you” to you.

Haechan:

Becomes a koala bear and doesn’t let go of you at all. Probably smiles to himself throughout the whole time and whines even when you move away a little. Loves pinching your cheek and smiling to himself after, his own cheeks turning into a bright shade of pink. The only time where he doesn’t tease you and becomes a sweet and soft bun, saying sweet words to you, “you’re so beautiful today, i love you”

watching skyeward in the framework is just….the most frustrating thing because WE COULD HAVE HAD THIS we could have had this in real life if the writers weren’t so hellbent on fucking up grant ward’s character six ways to sunday

the way he hovered over her shoulder! the way she told him to stop mouth breathing on her! the way she grabbed him and then kissed him on the cheek as a cover to slip him that paper! the way she sacrificed herself so he could get the intel to simmons! the way he said he’d die for her!! 

this is the ship that i wanted and yeah, i guess it’s better late than never that we are getting it now even if it’s all fake, but it also feels like an epically cruel level of trolling from the writers, like, we could’ve made him this interesting from season 1 but we chose not to because we thought it would be a better story if he were a nazi and then an alien husk and then dead! but hey, look at what could have been, isn’t that fun? 

and maybe i’m missing something major but what the fuck was fitz’s biggest regret that he ended up madame hydra’s fuckboy and became a sociopath? how did that happen? how does not being with simmons erase all the good that was in him? it’s such a cheap trope that i hate, that a man is only good because a woman made him that way, that he becomes a monster wehen he loses the love of his life. no, leo fitz has always been good because that’s who he is - he didn’t need jemma for that. they made each other better by bringing out the best in what was already in the other. 

and maybe i’m still missing something major but may NOT killing a little girl leads to may becoming a stone cold nazi?? may showing humanity leads to may not having any humanity?? may not killing the girl and therefore NOT following orders leads to may blindly following any and all orders? what am i missing?? how does that logically make sense?? 

just fucking throw me in the framework so i can see what my life would’ve been like if i’d never watched this show. it’s not like i hate it, i mean, imma still watch it….it’s just so….frustrating sometimes because i think it could be so much better than it is! the female characters are fucking AMAZING and the action sequences are really really well done but man idk maybe i don’t pay close enough attention but sometimes it just does NOT make sense and i will be forever salty over its treatment of grant ward not because he was a hero but because he had so much potential to be a full on villain or an anti-hero or to have a redemption arc and they squandered all of that

but uh great work with framework phil he’s adorable can we keep him please

I’ve just got to say that I’m really appreciative that Andromeda gave us so many male characters that really just aren’t afraid of their emotions. I think in sci-fi epics, it’s easy to fall into the trap of “big macho space men who shoot things woo!”, and here, that’s not so much the case. Lots of them have that aspect, but they also have sides to themselves that are very in tune with their emotions and aren’t necessarily afraid to show it.

Jaal is definitely the most obvious, as all Angara are very in touch with their emotions, and he isn’t ashamed of his feelings or if he’s vulnerable in front of other people. Liam will admit that he sometimes cries because he misses his mom, and will react when things go wrong in kind of knee-jerk emotional ways, and isn’t necessarily embarrassed by those reactions. Drack is a big gruff Krogan who just really fricken loves his granddaughter and talks about how she gave him reason to live, and sends Ryder pictures of shotguns to show sympathy, not tell them “eh suck it up”.

I think Bioware did a good job of introducing openly introspective and emotional characters like Kaidan and Thane in the OT, but they definitely expanded this time around, and I just find it to be a nice change and can really appreciate it.

Almost a year ago I found out about bts and made this blog. I just wanted a place to be their fan, to get to know more about them and at the time, I didn’t know how important they would become and their impact in my life.

I can’t really believe I’m actually typing this, but I reached 1k followers. It’s been a long time goal for me, from my other blogs (rip them) and I finally made it! But of course it wouldn’t be possible without all the amazing people that follows me. I just want to thank you all, for copying with me even when I don’t post oc for a while, when I was on a semi-hiatus bc of school and when I just didn’t show up sometimes. This blog grown a lot, especially since december and it’s all because of you ❤ Last year I also got to know so many amazing people and be friends with them and I can’t really believe it. I’m really luck to be able to call them my friends and I’m very grateful for have met them.

Now let’s move to the follow forever! I’m sorry if I missed some mutuals or forgot someone but tumblr confuses me lol

livinginthelopsidedworld  asked:

Maybe it's just me, but i liked that simon cheated on people in the books, that alec was sometimes really obnoxiously jealous and that clary disliked isabelle for a time. I missed that in the show. You see characters ahve t ahve flaws, they have to do bad things from time to time otherwise they wouldn't be realistic. You can't have your character never screwing up. The characters in the show are too perfect for me, how could i ever relate to them?

i really hope youre kidding bc first of all like alec has accidently murdered someone, clary tried to use black magic to bring that someone back, isabelle is on the road to becoming a drug addict, clary is reckless as hell, jace is constantly putting himself in danger, jace and alec spent the 1st season fighting trying to do what they thought was right,  theyre all racist as hell to downworlders, despite classing themselves as activists, they have all at some point gotten wrapped up in their own problems and ended up letting down their friends and family down, i could go on and on, theyre super flawed and they do some pretty fucked up things sometimes but the difference is theres complicated legitimate reasons for it and they feel remorse and apologise for it, theres a difference between writing flawed characters and writing assholes who perpetuate overused damaging, unrealistic tropes like girl hate, toxic relationships, biphobia and slutshaming and cheating and getting away with it. The thing is in the show, the character’s screw ups are actually recognised as screw ups, whereas cc normalised shitty and toxic behaviour

A Guide to Dæmon Interactions

Both interpersonal and inter… dæmonal. Keep in mind, these are solely based on my opinions of how a world with dæmons might be. These are not entirely based off of interactions from the HDM series, though it is the same principle. If anyone has other ideas, please share! It would be fun to talk about.

Firstly, I would like to address the idea I sometimes see floating around that  dæmons would be like guides or companions, sometimes even friends/protectors. Personally, I find this a bit absurd. A dæmon is a person’s soul, their innermost self, not a pet, and they are really not your therapist. I think the mistake people often make is that, in a world with dæmons, one human and one dæmon make a singular person. Two halves of a whole, and all that. How you view yourself is how you would view your dæmon, and vice versa. This isn’t to say that you can’t have a good relationship with your dæmon, it’s just a personal pet peeve that I have about the idea that a dæmon would comfort you through all the hard times and such. A person’s relationship with their dæmon is very much dependent on their relationship with themselves.

To break this down further, let’s examine how emotions would be interpreted to body language and proximity. A dæmon that is very clingy to their human would be portraying that person’s desire for comfort and support. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing; it could be a way of broadcasting someone’s lack of support system, or just a personality trait. Either way, the tactile act of comfort is representative of someone who enjoys/needs consistent reassurance. This kind of behavior could also be drawn out by anxiety, and someone subconsciously wanting to feel secure. Other ways anxiety could manifest would be submissive positioning (head down, exposed belly/throat, ears back, skittish movements, etc) for fear, raised fur/feathers or other types of bluffing threat displays for anger/distrust, hiding behind their human or in their clothes, and uncharacteristically high energy. Now, the default actions of a dæmon say a lot about their personality, as well as their human’s. Someone whose dæmon hides behind them suggests that they lack the confidence of someone whose dæmon bristles or snaps. In contrast, a dæmon that is rarely emotional signifies someone with barriers between themselves and the rest of the world.   

Now, the majority of people will be reasonably tactile with their dæmons- it just makes sense. While there can be subconscious drives behind a person/dæmons actions, a decent amount of it can be written off as part of living in close, comfortable proximity with another being. There’s a difference between a clingy dæmon and, say, a mouse dæmon who constantly rides around on their human’s shoulder for convenient and comfortable transportation. There’s also a difference between someone whose dæmon is reasonably aloof, and someone whose dæmon genuinely dislikes them. And yes, I do think that can happen for people who really, truly hate themselves. In my opinion, an indicator of certain kinds of mental illness could be a generally tense or bitter relationship with one’s dæmon. For example, someone with depression might alternate between a dæmon that is overly attached and one that’s aggressive with them, or they might desire to touch their dæmon but they won’t be allowed to. Even people without any type of mental illness would probably experience their dæmon lashing out at them in frustration at one point or another.  Anyway, someone who has a good relationship with their dæmon but isn’t constantly touching is likely the type who is pretty comfortable with themselves. They don’t need to regularly fulfill their craving for attention/affection, and therefore can handle a slightly more detached relationship.

I personally am of the opinion that in times of high emotion/stress, dæmons fall back onto their settled forms’ instinctive responses. For example, I don’t think a dog dæmon would never sniff another dæmon’s butt, but when they’re happy they’ll wag their tails or let their tongues loll out. Scare them and they might yelp, piss them off and they’ll growl, but there are still certain practices that just aren’t acceptable. There might be communes or something where dæmons are encouraged to “go natural” by acting as animalistic as possible. However, in your stereotypical interactions, dæmons are going to act like people, not like animals, though I think most dæmons leave the talking to their humans. In some countries, there might be some kind of polite greeting between dæmons, but that’s just speculation. Dæmons as a rule, I think, don’t usually talk to anyone other than other dæmons, their own human, and people they’re close to. I would think that they are capable of speaking out, and do, but I can imagine most people would like to keep their soul to themselves, a bit. Of course, levels of chattiness would depend largely on the dæmon/person, so for some, it isn’t that unusual to hear their dæmon talking to other people. I picture dæmons who are close spend a great deal of time cuddling or grooming one another, and chatting quietly together.

For people with separated dæmons (if they have a large water-bound form, an inconveniently large terrestrial form, or even a bird of some kind) I think they would likely compensate for the missing emotional support/broadcasting provided by their dæmon by being a bit exaggerated in their expressions and gestures. Without their dæmon next to them to help show how they feel, other people might need that extra indicator to really understand them.   

I imagine that it happens sometimes that people’s dæmons would just decide they like or dislike one another out of the blue. I’m sure it would be one of those things that couldn’t be scientifically proven, but the theory is that dust can be attracted or repelled by itself, and it pretty accurately can show how well two people will get along. This leads people to ask; do people turn out the way they do because of the specific dust their dæmon is made of, or does specific dust become attracted to them because of who they are? Kind of a nature versus nurture question.

Anyway, I feel like this is a pretty comprehensive overview of what interactions in a realistic world with dæmons would be like. If you think I’ve left anything off, let me know so we can talk about it! Or if you disagree, tell me why. I’m curious to hear what everyone has to say.

Next up I’m thinking of doing a guide to dæmons and gender/sexuality, if people are interested.

Draco’s parents had offered to let you stay at their house over the holidays because yours were visiting your brother in Sweden - he was staying there for a while before moving on to Egypt, where he’ll train dragons. Your parents were hesitant about leaving you, but considering you were nearly seventeen, they said the choice was yours between staying with Draco or at Hogwarts. Of course you chose Draco.

{ 100 followers celebration - 1st place: angst dark!wincest for @corrupteddean }

it’s cold and dark all the time in that place– but he’s not scared. he doesn’t need to be scared because his big brother is always there, always protecting Sammy and no matter how hard the docs try, they can never separate them. Dean will never leave his side, and Sam is content. they’re better, a lot better when they’re together–can’t the docs see this? can’t they see the Winchester boys need to be together? it’s something so simple to understand! Sam can’t be without his brother, and he can’t leave Dean alone in that awful place. they’re two halves of the same coin. one can’t exist without the other. that simple.

Dean’s hands are cold, too. Dean’s been cold for quite some time now, but it doesn’t matter. Sam is strong, he can deal with it. he shivers when ghostly fingers caress his skin, when cold lips kiss touch his but he endures. Dean doesn’t move away when they kiss and hug–and make love to each other, so why should Sam? he can be as strong as his big brother.

“we’re not crazy–” Dean says when the docs leave their shared room, his grip on Sam’s wrist so tight he feels the bone cracking under the pressure– but he doesn’t complain. it’s okay, because Dean never hurts him on purpose. it’s okay because when Dean notices what he’s doing, they’ll kiss and kiss and– “we’re not. we’re going to show them. right?”

Sam nods. he’s not sure if that’s a good idea–the docs and nurses are quite scary sometimes, and their medicine and ‘treatments’ are painful, like he’s being tortured in hell. he doesn’t like the examinations or the new pills… but he’s got no choice. he’s insane, they say. too dangerous to be allowed to leave. they can’t have him hurting innocent people because… because–

“i’ll tell you what, Sammy–” Dean is still talking, his cold breath sending shivers down Sam’s neck and he simply nods again. “one day, we’ll escape this room and we’ll burn this hole to the ground. would you like it?” there are calloused fingers tugging at his pants now, and he’s too dizzy to refuse. he’d do anything Dean wanted, of course. if his big brother is happy, so is Sam. “we can sit and watch them scream and burn– then we’ll show them, baby brother. i’ll show them how real i really am.”

Sam knows. he knows how real Dean is, he feels it day after day. his brother is real and he might not be so alive as before, but it’s okay because they’re together and nothing will ever change that.

he wishes everyone else could see it, too.
the asylum isn’t so bad, but sometimes he just misses the road.

Rung thoughts

•I feel like if you have blood sugar issues, like you get woozy and don’t feel well when your blood sugar gets to low, Rung would be the mech to hang around. Like, he’d be the one to keep snacks and candy bars on hand at all times.

•He’s also good at spotting when someone’s having those bad feeling low blood sugar episodes, especially if he knows the person well. He’d be that good friend that takes care of you and has your back. Like I imagine a human friend of Rung’s having an episode turning to him and saying “Hey Rung-” and Rung has already pulled out their favorite candy bar and is handing it to them before they even have to ask. They should thank the kind gentle mech and remind Rung how amazing and wonderful he is.

•He’d also be great for people, like myself, who have difficulty emoting (showing emotion). It’s not that I don’t feel anything, it’s just that my feelings don’t really show on my face often, I’m not very expressive and when I try to be I over-emote and it just makes things even more awkward. Rung, being the observant mech he is, would be able to pick up on the smaller things that show my mood that others miss entirely. I wouldn’t have to over emote or specifically tell him how I’m feeling like I sometimes have to with other people.

“Arizona…”

Callie whined slightly, dropping onto the couch beside her wife as the blonde picked up the remote and flicked on the TV. Supper was cleaned up, Sofia was in bed, and like every other Thursday night since the start of their relationship, Arizona was eagerly awaiting the new episode of her favourite show. It was Callie’s favourite show too – or it had been (it really still was, she just wouldn’t admit it) – and it was one of the first things they’d bonded over while dating, but after the previous season the brunette was stubbornly mad at the fictional characters and the people who wrote the show, and she complained about it every single week they turned it on.

“Why are we still watching this show? Seriously. These are hours of our lives that we’re never getting back.”

Arizona scrolled through the PVR menu and clicked on the newest episode of the medical drama from earlier that night, shifting her legs onto the couch so she could lean into Callie’s side.

“Because it’s still good! We’re too invested, we can’t quit now.”

“I still can’t forgive them for what they did.”

“We just have to keep watching. They’re meant for each other, Calliope. They have to end up together.”

Arizona hit play and snuggled contently into her wife’s side, and with only the slightest sigh of defeat, Callie wrapped her arm around the smaller woman and pulled the fleece throw over them.

“The actress is gone!”

“They’re still meant for each other. Be quiet – she’ll be back.”

The familiar voice of the narration sounded from the television set and Arizona was immediately riveted…and as much as she hated it, Callie found that she was too. She just couldn’t quit this show.

“…she has to come back, right?” Callie smiled as her favourite character appeared on screen, the remaining half of the perfect lovestruck duo they’d been rooting for for years (unsurprisingly, a blonde who looked strikingly similar to the one beside her), and then frowned slightly, “I mean…ugghh." 

Grumbling as the new "love interest” made an entrance seconds later, the brunette waved her hand toward the screen – fully engrossed in the story line already.

“She’s so not a replacement. I don’t buy it. Never will.”

“Of course not,” Arizona scoffed, “temporary distraction at best. You can imitate, but you can’t duplicate.”

Callie arched an eyebrow slightly, glancing down at her own blonde in amusement.

“Did you get that off her Twitter?”

“…maybe.”

“And I worry about Sofia online.”

Shh!”

Hushing the other woman, Arizona curled a hand around Callie’s thigh under the blanket. She couldn’t help how much she loved this show, she really couldn’t. The medical component was so over-the-top sometimes, and the personal drama between characters was getting ridiculous, but damn it – it had a hold on her.

A commercial for Subaru came on a moment later and Callie sighed, picking up the remote to skip through.

“I just miss them so much. They remind me of us.”

“They remind me of us too.”

Arizona glanced up, smiling as she tilted her head to capture Callie’s lips in a kiss.

“That’s why I know they’ll get back together. Made. For. Each. Other.”

Callie sighed happily into the kiss, hitting play again as she nuzzled her nose into blonde hair and turned toward the TV.

“Thank god our lives weren’t this dramatic, though.”

I love you for not feminizing Keith. I get that a lot of people like to feminize all the paladins but i really hate it particularly with Keith bc there is a long history of feminizing Asian men in hollywood and western culture. In the show, he's not weak and tiny, he's the same size as Lance! whenever I see artwork of him being "dainty" "petite" or dressed in women's clothing, it really just seems like more of the idea that Asians aren't MANLY or strong. Or it's a fetish which is worse

It’s more of a personal preference for me. I dislike seeing a feminine Keith especially since it doesn’t seem in character for him. (I’m like, weirdly picky on ooc-ness of characters. Sometimes I don’t mind but it’s a hit or miss.)

It’s definitely a no-no for me though. I just don’t like it. It reminds me of those dainty boys you’d see in yaois and I hate those. They’re always blushing and crying or something like that. Especially when it comes to ships, I’m not fan of differences like that.

You can have a strong feminine boy without making him look tiny and fragile. If I ever drew Keith feminine (which is unlikely bc all I ever draw is lance now), you can expect him to still remain fit and tall : /

But that’s just my preference for it at least

I realized the fandom didn’t have one of these yet, and decided to fix that very serious problem.

(Guys I know I go off on the themes of this show a lot but I just love them so much)

Also seriously if I tried to add anything about character interaction into this thing it would be wayyyyy too long woah but just trust me ok the characters are GREAT

Feel free to add anything I might have missed, guys!

we will revive this fandom if it kills us all
