somewhere something

Mara Wilson retweeted me the other day and that’s all I’ve ever wanted! But also she made me realize a core reason behind why I loved Matilda so much as a kid was because I was a queer kid in a hetero family. I always thought it was because I was a nerd who liked to read, but it was more than that. LGBTQ kids often feel isolated and unwanted in their own family. Even in the most accepting one, you’ll still feel like somewhat of a misunderstood oddity amongst them. And showing a kid who is “different” in their family find love and acceptance somewhere else was something eye opening for child me, but I never really drew that parallel.

I’m not sure if anger is a better reaction than sadness… She said that they may as well throw this whole planet in the trash and jump in right after, but we all know she didn’t mean that.

Having everything you want and love is what living on Earth is like, Peridot. But so is having everything you want and love taken away from you. Sometimes, it’s only when we lose something that we can cherish how good it was and how much it meant to us.

Ooh. Huh. It’s been a very, very long time since we had a good ol’ Corrupted Gem baddie of the week, right?

This is a Corrupted Gem, right? I can only assume its Gem is on its back somewhere, or something.

Trashmouth: THAT IS PART OF THE TRADITION

Bev: i like it when we all take a bite of Richie’s creation, praying to whatever deity we believe in that it doesn’t fucking kill us.

Trashmouth: It is my greatest honor when no loser dies.

Eds: Remember last year when you poisoned Ben?!

Benny Boy: Eddie I’m pretty sure it was an allergic reaction!

Eds: No way, I saw something somewhere that being poisoned has similar symptoms to severe allergic reactions. People then get diagnosed wrong and then you know what….THEY DIE BEN!!

When the Chitauri, as a final blow, gave Tony a glimpse into Peter’s dark DARK future.

I’m pretty sure Mei’s cinematic short made alot of us bawl our eyes out.


And then there’s this lil detail that I saw that I particularly liked but am not too sure on the accuracy of, and that is tea serving.

 In SG, we usually serve either rice wine or tea as a sign of respect to our ancestors during Qing Ming/ Grave sweeping Day to remember our ancestors and loved ones ( by placing three small lil cups of tea/ rice wine at the gravestone). 
At the same time, tea serving or 敬茶  is also a tradition that’s practiced during weddings where the newly weds serve tea to their relatives to acknowledge their new in-laws and new “brothers” and “sisters” and to pay respect to their current blood relatives.
Now I’m half drunk out of my mind and it’s late at night and @pentacass​ is half egging me on and I cannot brain properly right now, and inferring off the photo of Mei and her co-workers; they obviously seem like a close knit group of friends to her. 


I’m secretly half hoping/ imagining that those cups of tea she’s left for them is cause she’s acknowledged them as her brothers and sisters and served the tea to complete the tradition properly. 

Or to put it simply, She considers them as family.

*Update*

On second thought, now that I’m slightly more sober.
Can you imagine the line interactions between Mei and Angela ingame?
How Angela asks Mei about how she stays looking so young?

Mercy: Mei, you haven’t aged a day. What’s your secret?
Mei: Cryostasis. But I’m not sure if I’d recommend it.


Can you imagine, how Mei must be hurting sooooo much inside, when Angela asks that question? Like she just nyooooms back in her head sifting and recalling memories of when she just came out of the chamber to prep tea and all that shit for her colleagues as if its just another regular day at work? I wonder now, does Angela know what really happened? 

This is one of the most shallow reasons for why Kara and Lena are a great match (especially because there are so many great non shallow reasons) but I love that Kara won’t have to worry about spending any extra money she has on food because Lena’s a damn billionaire. I know it’s a running gag about how much Kara loves food but she honestly needs a lot of it.

Kara probably has a semi decent income from CatCo but with all her expenses and the fact that she most likely isn’t paid by the DEO, every leftover penny goes to making sure she gets enough calories, especially after she becomes Supergirl and starts using her powers on a daily basis. That’s a ton of food she has to buy in order to balance out how many calories she burns.

But she never wants Lena to think she’s using the woman for her money. Never. So she insists on splitting the bill or ordering much less than she needs if Lena insists on paying and Lena finds it so damn frustrating because why won’t her best friend let her pay for her food???

Until one day it just clicks for Lena after she’s told the Supergirl secret and has done the calorie math in her head and God Kara how are you able to afford all the food that you need? and the next day when Kara walks into her apartment, she sees that Lena has finally used the key she was given to completely overstock Kara’s kitchen with all sorts meals, snacks, protein bars, etc., with a simple note on the counter saying Let me know when you’re running low and it’s stupid but Kara finds herself getting emotional at Lena’s complete acceptance of who she is.

When a day has passed by and you haven’t recited the Qur'aan, do not say ‘I did not have time’.

Rather, speak the truth.

Admit that you did have time, but your priorities were messed up. Admit that you were given the time, but your heart was occupied with the Dunya.

Admit your flaws, your lacking, and then you will be able to fix what you need to fix. Speak the truth about yourself to yourself. Humble and submit yourself to Allāh swt and strive to do what you have to do as a Believer, as a Servant.

Excuses will not suffice, excuses are not good enough for a Believer.

if keith is from texas and lance and hunk are both from countries that are for the most part sunny, that means that they’ve all never seen snow before……………… wrow

hey, you.

hey, yes, i’m talking to you. i know you’re probably scrolling right now but this post wont take too long to read.

i just wanted to give you a quick reminder that you’re beautiful. yes, i know what you’re thinking, wow what an idiot they cant even see me, but that isn’t the case.

regardless of your looks, how long your hair is, how white your teeth are, how skinny you are, how tall you are, the colour of your skin, how big your butt is, you are beautiful. because you’ve made it this far. you have gotten through every fucking day in this shitty universe, and you are here right now, looking at this post. you have survived heartbreak, sadness, loneliness, trauma, and just all the general ups and down of life, and you are alive right now to tell the tale of it. you’ve pushed on through everything.

sometimes it doesn’t seem like it’s worth it, like you’re worth it, but you are. one day, that’ll make sense. you’ll be sitting somewhere nice, watching something, maybe someone, and you’ll remember all of the things you had to get through, and it’ll all make sense. 

congratulate yourself on getting this far. it’s a big thing, yet you’ve done it. if you ever feel like you aren’t worth it, i want you to know that it’s all going to be okay. you impact so many people’s lives, and you are some people’s entire worlds. people love you, they look up to you, they admire you. don’t give anyone the ‘life would go on without me’ excuse, because you know it wouldn’t. no one recovers from that.

you, my friend, are beautiful. dont you dare ever forget it.

Saying that I will always love you is something real. It’s saying that you will always have a place somewhere in my heart. It’s saying that you will always be a happy memory. It’s saying that my mind will somehow be always thinking of you. That you, will always be my true love.
