sorry for a lengthy post

disney patting itself on the back for LGBTQ representation by confirming Lefou gay in canon (when he was already blatantly coded that way as a “butt of the joke”) is the grossest thing and it irritates me so much. And this isn’t gonna be a disney hate post cause as yall know I love disney so much and specifically beauty and the beast means the world to me which gives me 10x more reason to be angry about it. its just so disgustingly disrespectful that theyre acting high and mighty about making a queer-coded comic relief villian character literally named “the fool”“ gay, when keeping in mind that beauty and the beast was so heavily influenced by howard ashman and his experiences and would be not be the gorgeous classic we love if it wasnt for him. howard ashman was the amazing lyricist for the movie (as well as the little mermaid, aladdin…) and was also a gay man who died of AIDS. so it just makes me disgusted to see headlines referencing ashman about disneys ~first openly gay (side character~ like "The Touching Tribute Behind Disneys First Openly Gay Character!” and “Beauty and the Beast has First Openly Gay Character as Director Calls Story ‘a Metaphor for AIDS’. like its so annoying to see disney and others acting like they give a shit about AIDS and gay people like if you really cared why didnt you make the central story gay or at the very least non-villain characters like a gay lady piano or some crap I dont fucking know? my end point is that disney doesnt care about LGBTQ people other than them giving them money and to me its annoying at best and disrespectful to howard ashmans legacy to act like theyre being progressive with this story.

anonymous asked:

I see you reblogging crazy ex girlfriend all the time and it looks like a show I might like, can you tell me a little bit of what's it about? I trust your judgement cause you have A+ taste in shows (:

I appreciate how you said “reblogging all the time” and not “have utterly spammed my dash with this absurd-looking show, what the hell, Em?” and I thank you for the kindness. <33

The Netflix summary of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is “Still pining for Josh, the boy who dumped her ages ago, whip-smart lawyer Rebecca jettisons her New York life and moves to California to win him back.” Yeah, not exactly appealing. And also not really what the show is about. But I can forgive them, since it’s pretty hard to encapsulate what this show is in a brief sentence. Because yes, surface-level, it is a dark-ish comedy musical satire about a lawyer who quits her job literally just as she’s about to be made junior partner after a chance encounter with her ex and moves across the country to be with him and finally find true happiness, but it’s about so much more.

It’s about deconstructing tropes, particularly those found in romantic comedies, including, you guessed it, the “crazy ex-girlfriend,” and examining how said tropes normalize irrational, harmful behaviors and actions in the name of love, which, PS, is no guarantee of real happiness. Tropes and stereotypes get subverted and blown apart and shredded and it is fascinating because you never know quite what to expect. 

It’s about a woman who literally sees her life as a series of musical numbers, especially when her emotions are running high, which leads to pastiches of pretty much any musical genre you can think of. Boy bands? Done. Fred and Ginger? You got it. Big Broadway send ups? Yup! And no topic is off limits! In just two short seasons, we’ve covered the horrors women go through to get ready for a date, romanticized depictions of depression, celebrating being bisexual, falling for your sex buddy, intrusive thoughtsthat self-loathing feeling when you fuck EVERYTHING up, the truth about having big boobs, and the more joyful side of UTI’s. And that’s (literally) not even the half of it. 

It’s about people dealing with mental illness in a way that is brutally honest and sensitive but also funny at the same time. It makes the content approachable without diminishing the seriousness of the condition. (Speaking as someone who struggles with mental illness herself, I find these songs in particular to be both painfully accurate and remarkably reassuring.) And it’s about the long-term ramifications of growing up with emotionally abusive and neglectful parents. 

It’s about relationships of all kinds – romantic, familial, platonic. They’re complicated and messy at times, rewarding and emotionally fulfilling at others. And while yes, romance is a major plot point, we are constantly reminded that while yes, there’s romance and it’s a major plot point, the most important relationship in the show is between our lady protagonist and her female best friend. (Oh, but did I mention that the healthiest relationship on the show is between a bisexual man and a gay man? Because it is. And that there was a stretch of eps without a single straight white man? Because that happened.) 

It’s about an antiheroine who does objectively terrible things and who consistently makes awful life decisions, who’s impulsive and self-centered, but is still a good person just trying to find happiness, who is surrounded by similarly nuanced and beautifully flawed characters who are also at a crossroads in their lives and trying to figure out what steps they need to take to be happy. And while the situations they find themselves in may seem over the top, they’re also so relatable.

There’s a lot to unpack with this show. The content can be pretty heavy at times, and it can be painful to watch these people you come to love sabotage themselves and struggle so much with their dreams. But it’s also just such a smart comedy that thrives on taking risks, so trust me – you’ll be laughing nearly the entire time. And it’s so fantastical and absurdist at times (dream ghosts, anybody?) that it makes for great escapist TV and is literally the only reason I’m still alive and thriving post January 20, 2017.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is honestly like nothing else on TV, and you may be in a bit of shock when you first start watching. (Literally, my first time I swear I kept pinching myself and asking “is this an ACTUAL show I am watching right now what is happening HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?!”) But trust me – there are so many reasons to watch this show and it took all my willpower to not just scream incoherently in this response for 10K+ words. So go on. Give it a shot. I bet before too long you’ll be falling in love and singing right along with the rest of ’em.

hey so it’s been a hot minute since i’ve rly been on here but i’m just checking in to let u all know i’m doing a lot better than i have been for the past several months and finally i consistently feel good getting up everyday which is like…. seriously awesome??? i’ve made some lifestyle changes (eating MUCH healthier, exercising, trying not to sleep so much, and trying to get out more especially) and it’s really helped a lot and made my anxiety/depression a lot more manageable.

You Accidentally Hit Them in Their Private Area // Seventeen Reaction

Requested: Yes

I haven’t seen any reactions on your blog, so can you make a seventeen reaction when their gf accidentally hits their “private part”? 😂 (if all 13 members is too much just the performance unit is fine) thank you~~

Author’s Note: Thank you for requesting! I was able to do a reaction for all 13 members. I like to do little scenarios with my reactions, so a couple of them got a little lengthy. I hope that’s okay. Also, sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I had mid-terms and two analysis papers to write for my Advanced Composition class, but hopefully I’ll have time to write more often. Thank you!

Seungcheol and I have been in a relationship for a couple years now, so it isn’t uncommon for me to sleep over at the dorm. After a long day of work for the both of us, we figured that it would be best for us to get some sleep. After I got ready for bed I climbed under the covers with him as he wrapped his arms around me. I buried my face into his chest, “Goodnight, oppa.” He kissed my forehead, “Goodnight, babe. Get some rest.” Soon we both dozed off into a deep slumber, but Seungcheol was soon awaken by a sharp pain in his lower region. Clutching his private parts, he looked to his right in confusion only to see me still asleep, but moving around. He quickly realized that the pain in his lower region was caused by me kneeing him in the crotch. “Aish, what am I going to do with you?” he questioned even though I was asleep and couldn’t hear him.

Jeonghan and the boys got home from practice early that evening, so the two of us decided to watch some movies together. After a while we both got bored and started goofing off. I loved hearing his laugh because it was contagious and the only way I knew to make him laugh was to tickle him since he is quite ticklish. Running my hands up his sides, he began to squirm and laugh, “Stop,” He grabbed both of my wrist and held them above my head as he began to tickle me. I happened to be more ticklish than he was. Laughing, I tried to break free from his strong grasp, but failed to do so. My legs flailed uncontrollably, which ended up coming into contact with his lower region. Instantly, he let go of me so he could cover his private area. Groaning, he gave me a death stare, “What the hell was that for?” I shrugged my shoulders, “You know how ticklish I am,” I giggled, “Maybe you shouldn’t have done that and you wouldn’t have gotten nailed in the crotch.”

For some reason Joshua thought that it was a good idea to try to teach me some cords on the guitar. “Joshua, this is not going to go over so well. The last time I tried to teach myself to play the guitar I ended up breaking it.” Grabbing my hand he pulled me over to his bed, “That’s because you didn’t have me as a teacher.” I laughed as I sat down, “I doubt that you’ll be able to teach me. I’m hopeless.” “Nonsense.” he said and shook his head as he grabbed his guitar. Walking over to where I sat on his bed, he gave me his guitar and climbed on the mattress behind me. Blushing, I pushed a loose strand of hair behind ear as he wrapped his arms around me. He placed his hand on the neck of the guitar and strummed the strings a few times causing a beautiful sound to emit from the guitar and echo throughout the room . He placed my hands on the neck of the guitar as he showed me what to do. I attempted to follow his instructions, but I eventually got fed up after a couple hours because I was not making any progress. Not aware of the fact that Joshua moved slightly to the left, I threw my hands up in the air and let out a exasperated sigh, “I give up!” I brought my hands down and my left hand collided with Joshua. Looking over my shoulder, I seen Joshua cup his crotch and slightly scrunch up his face. “Oh my gosh! Joshua, I didn’t mean to do that. How bad does it hurt?” I questioned as I rubbed his arm. His face didn’t show anymore signs of pain and he removed his hands from his crotch, “It’s okay, it didn’t hurt that much,” He noticed my guilty expression and tried to comfort me, “I was more surprised and caught off guard, so don’t worry about it.” I laughed at myself and shook my head, “Told you I was hopeless.”

The boys had a day off of practice and decided to spend the day at the dorm resting. Jun invited me over since his busy schedule has prevented me from spending a lot of time with him. We were the only two in his room, so we decided to take advantage of the opportunity. It started off with a simple peck on the lips, but it soon escalated into a heated make out session. We were sitting on the edge of his bed when he wrapped his arms around my waist and leaned back onto the bed. I trailed kisses down his neck and to his collarbone, which was were his sweet spot was. He moaned quietly and I started to climb onto his lap. I ended up losing my balance and  kneeing him in the crotch. He swore and pushed me off of his lap as he covered his private parts. “Oh my gosh, Jun! I lost my balance, I didn’t mean for that to happen,” I rubbed his back, “I’ll do anything to make it up to you.” As soon as those words left my mouth Jun smirked, “Anything? I can think of a few ways you can make it up for me.” I shoved his shoulder and giggled, “Maybe you deserved that you cocky bastard.”

When Hoshi was younger he used to do taekwondo, but his love for music and dance took over. He loved doing it, but he doesn’t have time to anymore since he’s been busy with Seventeen and their music. Even though he doesn’t have time to go out and practice anymore, he still likes to mess around and show off some of his moves. We were in his room at the dorm when he somehow talked me into having a little competition with him. I didn’t know anything about taekwondo, so he showed me a couple of the basic moves. We went on for a half an hour messing around when Seungcheol called out for him. “Yeah?” he yelled back. He was too distracted by his hyung and put his defences down, but I wasn’t paying attention, so I swung my leg up towards him and my foot collided with his private area. I gasped and covered my mouth with my hands. He collapsed to the ground and cupped his crotch as he groaned in pain. “Soonyoung! Oh my gosh!” Panicking, I rushed out of his room and towards the kitchen. While gathering a bag of ice, Seungcheol questioned me as I left the kitchen, “What’s going on? Are you okay?” As I rushed past him and the boys towards Hoshi’s room, I only managed to say squeak out the three words, ‘taekwondo’, ‘hurt’, and ‘Hoshi.’ Entering his room, I see that he sat up and was no longer groaning in pain. I handed him the ice pack as I ran my fingers through his hair, “I’m sorry, babe. Does it hurt that bad?” Putting the ice pack onto his crotch, he let out an airy laugh, “A little bit, but I’ll be alright.” I held my hand out to help him to his feet, “I’m never going to do taekwondo with you again.”

There’s no doubt that Wonwoo loves to read. If he isn’t busy practicing and preparing for comebacks or attending fanmeets, then he’s most likely reading. I love to read too, it’s one of the things we have in common. Our love or books landed us at one of the many bookstores in Seoul. Wonwoo and I wander from isle to isle looking at many different books that varied from genre. I held his hand and pulled him towards the back of the bookstore where they kept the fiction books. “Wonwoo, I read this book earlier and I loved it. You have to read it, I think you will enjoy it as much as I did.” Reaching the fiction section, my eyes began scanning through hundreds of books looking for the book that I wanted Wonwoo to read. I squatted down, so I could look at  the lower shelves while he stood behind me. My eyes stopped as they fell upon The Kite Runner. Smiling to myself, “There it is!” I pulled the book off of the shelve and held it up for Wonwoo to take, but unfortunately, I ended up ramming the book into his lower region because of how close he was to me. I gasped as he groaned and covered his crotch, “Wonwoo,” I stood up and placed my hand on his shoulder rubbing it softly while trying to comfort him, “Babe, are you okay?” With being in public he didn’t want to make what just happened obvious, so he straightened up and waved me off, “It’s okay, jagiya. Don’t worry about it, let’s just get the book and head home.” Grabbing my hand, he led me to the front of the store, so we could check out. I didn’t stop apologizing until we got back to the dorm and he reassured me once more that it was okay.

With Seventeen planning on releasing a new album soon, Woozi basically lives at the studio these days. When he’s working on a new song, he gets so consumed with his work and he pretty much forgets to take care of himself. I figured he hasn’t eaten since this morning, so I brought him so food. Entering the studio, Woozi was at one of the computers working on one of their songs. I noticed he had his headphones in and probably didn’t hear me come in. After sitting the bag of food down, I walked up behind him and wrapped my arms around his neck. He jumped slightly and pulled his headphones out. “Hey, babe. I brought you some food.” I said as I released him and shuffled towards the bags of food. I was bent over pulling out a couple containers when I brought my elbow back and it collided with Woozi, who happened to get up and follow me. Turning around, Woozi groaned as he clutched his private area. “Woozi! I am so sorry! I didn’t know you were behind me.” He straightened up slightly, “It’s alright, I shouldn’t have been standing so close.” Feeling guilty, I handed him the container of food and smiled at him sheepishly, “I got your favorite, so maybe that’ll makeup for it.”

The boys had a day off and DK invited me to the park with them. They wanted to relax and play some soccer together, which was something that they all enjoyed doing in their freetime. Let me just say that I suck at soccer and someone always gets hurt when I’m playing. The last time we played together, Seungkwan took a soccer ball to the back of his head. Once we arrived at the park, we began to pick teams. Jeonghan and Seungcheol were the captains. The two bickered back and forth on who they were going to have on their team and it got down to the last few players, which happened to be Joshua, Seungkwan, and I. “Can someone just pick me already? I’m really not that bad,” I whined. Most of the boys laughed at me and began to recall all the times someone got hurt when I was playing. DK turned to Jeonghan, his captain and begged his hyung to pick me. “Finally!” I shouted and threw my hands up in the air as he called out my name to be on his team. The game started and it didn’t take long for it to become intense. Surprisingly, so far no one got hurt. The ball was being passed from player to player as we ran across the field. “Y/N!” shouted Hoshi as he passed me the ball. I began to run with it towards the goal and I saw DK in the corner of my eye, “Seokmin!” I kicked the ball with all the force I could. The ball flew towards DK, but it ended up nailing him in the crotch causing him to let out a scream. “Seokmin!” I yelled as I ran towards him. He instantly fell to the ground and cupped his private area hoping it would help make the pain would go away. I crouched down on the ground and tried to comfort him the best I could. The rest of the boys surrounded the two of us trying to help DK. “Babe, are you okay?” I questioned. He rolled around in pain, “Yeah, I’ll be fine just give me a minute.” Looking up at the boys hovering over the two of us, Seungkwan raised an eyebrow at me, “You were saying?”

I was over at the dorm hanging out with the boys. After a long day of practice, I figured that they would be hungry and tired, so I thought that the least I could do was to cook a nice meal for them. Leaving the warm arms of Mingyu, I got up and headed towards the kitchen. “Y/N, where are you going?” questioned Mingyu. “I’m going to cook the boys something to eat.” After the word ‘cook’ left my mouth, he was already on his feet following me to the kitchen, “I’ll help you.” I reached the refrigerator and looked for something to eat, “How about Japchae?” Mingyu helped me gather the ingredients, “Sounds delicious.” I prepared the beef so it could marinate for a little bit. We washed and cut up the vegetables and then started to boil the water, so we could cook the noodles. I got a wooden spoon and began to stir the noodles. “This is going to be so good.” said Mingyu from behind me. I turned around and noticed that he was eating the vegetables that we cut for the Japchae, “Hey, stop eating that!” I hollered as I swung the wooden spoon at him. He started to move just as I was about to hit him, which caused me to hit him in the crotch. “Aigo, what was that for?” Mingyu whined with slight pain in his voice as he tried to move away from me, so I couldn’t cause him anymore harm. “I guess that’s what you get for trying to eat all of the food.” I said as I shrugged my shoulders.

It’s no secret that Minghao is one hell of a b-boying dancer. I happened to also be a dancer, but I loved to dance contemporary. Minghao never fails to amaze me with his dancing skills. I have always wanted to try b-boying and since Minghao was so good at it, who would be better at teaching me than him? He has been teaching me the basics of b-boying for a while now and he has been starting to teach me more advanced moves. The latest move we have been working on was called The Flare. Minghao was demonstrating it for me, “You have the upper body strength for this, you just need to spread your legs farther so you can get up enough momentum to keep your hips elevated off the ground,” I listened carefully as he continued to give me pointers. “It’ll make the move a lot easier for you to do if your legs are spread further apart. Go ahead and try again,” he encouraged me. I got into position and began to execute the dance move. “That’s it, just spread your legs farther!” I did as he told me and the move became a lot easier and I found that I did not have to use my core so much. I could hear Minghao cheering, “That’s it! Good job, jagiya.” I continued until my foot came in contact with something. Losing my balance, I fell to the floor and looked up to see Minghao on the floor too. I quickly got up and made my way towards him. Once I reached him, I noticed his face was scrunched up and he was holding his private parts. Realizing that my foot hit his crotch, I panicked, “Minghao! Are you okay?” I rubbed his back hoping it would comfort him some, “I did not mean to do that!” He looked a little flustered as he sat up, “It’s okay, jagiya. I should have known better than to stand so close to you.” Giggling, I pulled him into a hug, “ Maybe you should do the b-boying and I’ll stick to contemporary.”

Seungkwan texted me a couple minutes ago that they were heading back to the dorm. I didn’t want the boys to have to come home and worry about fixing something to eat, especially after such a long day at work. I decided to head to the kitchen and begin to fix dinner for them. I sang along to the music that blasted from my phone that was placed on the counter. The music and my singing drowned out the noise of the boys entering the dorm. Seungkwan saw me cooking and walked up behind me and wrapped his arms around my torso, which startled me. I screamed and turned around. When I spun around my hand hit him lightly in his lower region. He let out a scream too and doubled over in pain, “Aigo, jagiya! That really hurt,” He looked at me with disbelief, “I can’t believe you just did that.” Rolling my eyes at him, “Are you serious right now? I really didn’t hit you that hard.” “You probably just ruined any chance of us having kids in the future.” I smacked his chest, “Stop being so dramatic, Seungkwan.” “It’s what I’m best at.” he said as he grinned at me.

Vernon and I were in the living room of the dorm having a movie night with the rest of the boys. While waiting for everyone to settle down, Vernon and I argued over which movie to watch. We were scanning the shelves when I grabbed a horror movie and Vernon grabbed an action movie. He looked at me, “We are not watching a horror movie.” I raised an eyebrow, “Why? Are you scared?” He rolled his eyes at me, “No, action movies are better. Besides, the same thing happens in every horror movie.” I shook my head and waved the movie in front of his face, “We’re watching this movie.” He gave me a smug look, “Not if I get to the DVD player first.” As soon as those words left his mouth, we both rushed past the boys and towards the DVD player, “We’re watching the action movie!” “No, we’re watching the horror movie.” Upon reaching the DVD player, we fought to get the movie out of the case and into the DVD player. He stopped fighting with me and I was able to get the movie into the player. I turned around and seen some of the members crowding around Vernon. Rushing towards him, I realized that the only reason he stopped was because I hit him in his private area. “Vernon! What Happened?” He squeaked, “What do you think happened?” He shuffled his way back to the couch and sat down. Full of guilt, I sighed and turned around and put on the action movie instead. Climbing onto the couch next to him, I kissed his cheek and brush his hair out of his face, “I’m sorry, babe.”

I was at the Pledis building with the boys when they had a short break. They have recently became interested in ping ping, so they decided that they should play for a little bit while they were on their break. Chan and I trailed behind the older boys as they ran excitingly towards the room that the ping pong table was in. We both sat down and watched a few of the boys play against each other. We cheered as the match between Joshua and Woozi became quite intense. Shortly, Woozi beat Joshua and Dino jumped to his feet, “I want to battle Y/N!” Chan yelled as he turned towards me and grabbed my hand. He pulled me to my feet and began to drag me towards the table. I kept refusing to play and tried to pull my hand out of his grasp, but he was to strong. “Come on, jagiya. It’ll be fun and I’ll go easy on you.” he smiled and winked at me. Taking the paddle from Woozi, the boys began to cheer us on and started to pick sides as to who would win. After a couple minutes, we were tied and the person who got the next point would win. The ball went back and forth between us and I decided to hit the ball with a little more force and Dino failed to stop it as it flew towards his crotch. His eyes widened as his face scrunched up and he closed his eyes. He dropped the paddle onto the table and we all swarmed around him to see in he was okay. After he confirmed that he was fine, I looked at him and laughed, “You didn’t need to go that easy on me.”


I just need to get this of my chest...

ok so, not too long ago I accepted an anonymous ask about them using one of my reaper76 art on a couple shirts for themselves (hopefully). I’ve later come to really really regret that decision because I was too hyped and happy for someone to really like my art so much that they would put it on a shirt, that I completely ignored the fact that they asked it anonymously and that there might be horrible consequences. You really can’t know for sure that the person is sincere when they ask such things anonymously because you don’t know if they’re going to make more shirts (or other products) and sell them for their own gain, and I see my mistake in that…

This has kept me up in the middle of the night because I’m panicking over the fact that I was way to ignorant of the consequences, but since I now have had time to think I am aware of what might happen. So in the future I won’t accept any ask about using my art for anything personal (then I’m talking about cards or prints to hang on the wall or even shirts or other products.)And I will especially not allow it if asked anonymously. When it comes to icons or whatever for tumblr then I might let you, but only if not asked anonymously.

I love my art very very much. I put on a watermark or signature or whatever you want to call it for a reason because I’m afraid that someone might steal it… And I will never sell my art, so if you find my art on any products around on the internet, that is differently not me selling them.

PS: I have deleted the post where I accepted the anonymous ask about using my art because I’m afraid that someone else might misunderstand it and think that I do allow people using my art for anything, even when it is asked anonymously, when in reality I don’t accept it.

I just really needed to get this of my chest because I’ve been struggling with this for a while and hopefully I can sleep easier now, and I really want you guys to know where I stand on the subject. And sorry for this kind of a lengthy post, I just needed to put my thoughts into words.

Still have a great day and thank you for listening! ♥        

//death of a bachelor

Unconsciousness was a tricky frame of mind. Ciel couldn’t tell if he dreamed it, or if he really had passed out somewhere, at some point. All he’s aware of now is that he feels like he may have died. If he did, it wouldn’t be anything to be upset about. He wouldn’t have to walk into that damned office another day. But the more he thinks about it, the more he experiences it as he sluggishly pulls through, is that he would rather wish death than to feel how he feels at that very moment. This is as close to being a corpse as he’s ever been, and he couldn’t pinpoint how to react, because he hadn’t the strength to.

His skin was cold as he felt goosebumps spread like a sheet of hail against his skin, eyes far too heavy to keep open for only a moment. A small breath inched past his lips that seemed to just return back into him. He sensed he was on oxygen, with the way his nose felt incredibly dry. Piece by piece, Ciel put together the clues, and when they created a picture, he was struck with devastation. He couldn’t tell at the moment if he was upset at himself for it, or upset at who decided to finally turn him in.

An older male’s voice spoke to him, a tone that was meant to be comforting and reassuring, yet he translated it as ‘you idiot, you damn near did yourself in, again’. In attempts to gather up the strength needed to open his eyes, he made progress when the bright lights of the emergency room pierced through the slits, blurs ever so slowly creating shapes that molded into faces. This older man, a doctor of sorts, probably would have rather wanted to shut his oxygen off. He knows he’s thinking what a screw up he is. Truth be told, he didn’t mean it this time. He was stressed, pressured…

And there she was. That bloody blonde at his other side. She was the entity that wouldn’t let the living rest. He expressed a sound close to a whimper, a way of saying he’s a victim of her witchcraft. “S-Sh-…She…m-made me…She made…me…” This was stupid, so stupid, he couldn’t even make himself clear. His words were sluggish, the effort to even speak one word pained his lungs as if he were breathing hot needles. But it was all true. She led him to a stress so great he had to double dose. She’s around every corner and he couldn’t stand her nose in his business. 

Oh god, what is she going to say for him? Is she going to rat him out? Did she call his father? The anxiety of knowing she can further ruin his life beyond what he’s never expected is more than enough to put him into hysterics. This wasn’t over. He won’t let her win.

anonymous asked:

RFA reaction to meeting MC and her being super tall? Like as tall as zen and jumin?? (SHE'S A GLAMAZON!!)

Sweet! You thinking muscular type or tall-and-slim? Because I went to google images and most of them show Glamazons as either one or the other haha (both look cool tho and obviously those can’t be the only varieties). Just a reminder that you can feel free to come at us with your nonbinary, male and trans MC headcanons. All of it will be accepted ^^ If we aren’t specifically asked for a particular gender, the MC in our headcanons won’t be either.

Finally got around to posting something again! Sorry for the lengthy hiatus pals ^^ Happy Valentine’s<3 


  • He didn’t imagine you being his height
  • But he’s actually really into it
  • It kinda challenges his point of view about these things
  • because he’d always imagined having a girlfriend that has to tip-toe to reach his face
  • but when you turn out to be even taller than him he realises maybe he’s been a bit presomptious about his expectations
  • He thinks you look really cute though
  • and even though you may look like someone who can take care of themselves
  • he’s always ready to be protective of you whenever he feels the need to


  • He saw it coming
  • He’d spent so long looking at you through the video cameras and that let him guess your height pretty accurately
  • So he was Prepared when he met you
  • Looking taller than you’d imagined, you looked him over and realised that he was wearing platform shoes 
  • He was just grinning while you laughed
  • clearly pleased with himself 
  • “We can be the same height now!” 
  • He’d spent all day practicing wearing the heels 
  • but they were difficult to walk in 
  • and he needed you to support him on the way back from the party
  • It was all good though, you were both just laughing and joking the way through the parking lot 
  • He’ll still sometimes put them on so that he can look you in the eyes properly
  • it’s become an inside joke between the two of you


  • She’s not really that tall herself, so you can imagine her surprise when she realises just how tall you are
  • She doesn’t mind, though you notice a slight shift in the height of her heels: she starts wearing slightly taller ones 
  • It’s adorable 
  • She doesn’t say so herself, but you know she loves being a height that lets you kiss the top of her head any time
  • The height difference is rather big so you often have to bend down, while she stands on her toes 
  • but both of you just think it makes the other look cuter 
  • You both feel very comfortable in each other’s company and it becomes a sort of perfect harmony 
  • She’ll never have trouble reaching the top shelves again

Jumin Han:

  • Finding someone the same height as him that isn’t a bulky life guard or one of his father’s friends was surreal, to say the least
  • To top it of, when it’s someone that’s so cute??
  • he loves that he can kiss you without leaning down
  • And that you can do the same
  • And the times you wear heels??
  • ooh boy Jumin Han has found a new kink
  • You two look like quite the intimidating couple tbh

  • You both have a lot of fun


  • Woahh!!! 
  • He really loves showing you off 
  • bc he thinks it’s so cool that you’re so tall?
  • At first he was kinda intimidated because he didn’t quite realise how tall you’d be even though you told him
  • That time Jaehee blamed him being single on his height made him feel a bit self-conscious when he first heard you were tall
  • but a quick reassurance from you made him feel better
  • the height difference gives the two of you reason to create internal jokes
  • queue Yoosung pretending he can’t reach anything even though it’s close by
  • He started doing it when Seven made fun of the height difference and you both just ran with it
  • best thing ever tbh

Well I feel like typing some Mortina scenarios today because it’s something i’ve been meaning to do as a whole for a while SO here I go!

  • Morty walking into a room one day and tripping over something,that something being Tina laying on the floor,groaning. He asks what she’s doing and Tina is just like “This is how I deal with terrible things happening in my life” “O-Oh….can I try?” and then they both just lay there groaning,Morty’s being a little louder than Tina’s because the boy’s life is just chaos. Morty’s groans escalate to screams and it probably startles Tina.
  • Morty isn’t much of a reader outside of comic books but he eventually gets into Tina’s friend fictions. Like,at first he thinks they’re kind of weird and the romance with Jimmy Jr. isn’t the greatest,but then Tina suggests they write one together and he gets INTO it. Tina admiring his creativity.
  • Morty and Tina chilling in her room,Tina’s at her desk writing and Morty’s laying across her bed telling her about his adventures with Rick. Tina getting inspired by his stories. She eventually stops writing just so she can pay better attention to him,fascinated. Probably asks about any hot aliens.
  • Rick dragging Morty and the belcher kids onto an adventure (because “more hands”,and Louise kept insisting they go too) and in the midst of a near death experience,Tina clings onto Morty while everyone is screaming. Afterwards they rejoice that they’re still alive and Morty spins her around in celebration and puts her down,walking away like “WHOO”. Tina standing there a bit with a tiny smile until Louise smacks her back to keep going.
  • Morty and Tina sneaking out one night to ride in Rick’s ship. Tina isn’t so sure about sneaking out until Morty reassures her that he’s gotten good at driving the ship and that they won’t be gone too long. The whole ride consists of soft 70′s music and chatting,while also enjoying the view.
  • Tina isn’t into video games much,but Morty shows her how to play and she becomes a freaking beast at Mario Kart. Morty is proud of her until she fuckiNG BLUE SHELLS HIM OUT OF NOWHERE,WHAT THE HECK?! Bonus points if Tina looks at him with a straight face like “git gud.”
  • Tina complimenting Morty over small things because she’s that kind of sweetheart. Morty appreciating it because he’s only ever used to insults at anything he does. Thanks,grandpa!
  • Tina and Morty listening to music in either’s room and eventually Morty starts dancing to it and Tina joins in,they start singing a long to the music while they dance and probably slip up on the lyrics once or twice. 
  • Tina listening to Morty rant about the bad things that happen to him on adventures to help him vent and he gets angry in the middle of it and Tina tells him she knows a way to help him let out that anger. The scene switches to Morty breaking trash Tina,Louise,and Gene find at the wharf with a bat and Tina is watching from a safe distance. She’s finding this strangely attractive.
  • They’ve probably tried sitting on the roof of Morty’s house like indie trash kids and Tina fell off.Prompting Morty to try to save her only to also fall off. Rick hears them plop and runs over to laugh at them.
  • Morty being a bit uncomfortable when it comes to Tina’s horse posters.It’s the eyes,man. Their cold dead eyes.
  • Morty telling Tina there’s a bunch of alternate versions of him and Tina asking if a zombie Morty exists and he’s like “probably!” and she’s in awe for an hour.
  • The first kiss could either be adorable or a disaster or an adorable disaster.

heyza. do you have any suggestions on how to begin really getting into fitness? I'm a noodle kid and I want to do something to change that. but I have no idea where to begin. additionally, the only equipment I have access to would be a treadmill. are there workouts that I can do that don't rely solely on a plethora of gym equipment? what sort of schedule should I start with? sorry for such a lengthy series of questions! hope you can help.


Update regarding this blog!

Hey hey my dudes!! I hope you’re all keeping well and I’m sorry for my lengthy absence, I think we all know what this post is going to be about hahahaaa…

So I was originally going to film this so I can tell you what’s been happening in person but it was really difficult for me to talk about everything and still make it short and sweet, and every time I tried to film it I just lost track?? So I’m sorry my friends; this is going to be in the form of a text post!

So I’ll cut to the chase so you guys won’t have to read too much, in case you can’t tell already this blog is pretty much dead. I’m sorry guys I just don’t have the motivation to keep this ask blog going, I’m not really into Hetalia as much as I used to be and running this blog and creating content for it took up a lot of my time. I think you need to have a really keen interest in something to put so much time and effort into it, which I unfortunately just don’t have for Hetalia anymore!

However, I do still really love cosplaying! So my plan for this blog is to keep it up but slowly change it into a general cosplay tumblr with a much wider range of content! It would be a shame to lose the lovely little following I have on this blog, so if you’d all still like to keep up to date with my cosplaying, then please do keep following me! However, if that’s not your thing then I honestly will not be offended if you’d like to unfollow me too! I understand completely that all of you followed me with the assumption that this would be a Hetalia Ask Blog, so I wish you all the best whatever your decision may be!

I’m currently in the middle of starting up a YouTube channel where I plan to upload some Vlogs, cosplay and cosplay makeup tutorials, and right now the best place to find me where I update regularly (at least every other day) would be my Instagram, solkishi! When this blog officially changes over to a cosplay blog, it will come under the username solkishi (or something similar), as will any future Facebook pages, twitter accounts, etc, as this will be my cosplay brand name! I’m trying to keep it all under the same name so that you all may be able to find me easily!

(Also an extra note just because a lot of you have been asking, Sara and I parted ways last October, we originally weren’t that bothered about broadcasting something like this, however we made the decision to make our relationship public to you guys so I feel I have a responsibility to let you all know that we’re not together anymore! We’re still very good friends however and we’re sorry it didn’t work out, but please do keep supporting us both as we work towards becoming great cosplayers!)

I think that’s everything for now? If you have any questions please send an ask to my personal blog: knightlysunshine, as the ask function on this blog is acting a little glitchy, I plan to change the theme and all that once the blog change takes place!

Thank you so much for reading this far haha, I hope at least a few of you will continue to stay by my side and watch me grow as a cosplayer! Your support these last few years on this blog has been amazing and I’m so lucky to say I have over 6000 followers on here, so whether you stay or go, thank you so much for supporting me!! 💖💖💖💖

“The voice you hear your thoughts in is your soulmate’s but you don’t know who they are until you hear them speak for the first time.”

A/N: Alright, babes, this part is rather lengthy and fluffy. Sorry it took a while to post, I had minor writers block as it nearly took my five drafts to write this. Hope you all enjoy this as much as I do! Mentioning a young Ben Solo (in love) is always fun! [GIF NOT MINE]

Word Count: 4.5K+

Warning: None! Unless you’re allergic to fluff…



It was safe to say–or at least admit to yourself–that all you had been thinking about was the near kiss(es). The thought of it made you feel bummed out, it was confusing all together that you craved the feeling of his lips against your own. Was this how it felt before? You couldn’t quite remember, after all, there were still a lot of memories the were ‘missing’. Huffing at the thought, you took your last bite of the stew before placing the spoon in the empty bowl. When were you going to remember your past with Kylo Ben? It was itching at your skin, the desire to learn, remember, more of what you two once had. But this meant confronting him, did Kylo really want you to remember? Or was he too afraid of you seeing the past and expecting it to be the same now? Sighing as you pushed the bowl away from you, leaning in the chair,  your thoughts were instantly ripped from you. “Do you want another bowl?” Alastair nearly snorted, seeing as you were now finishing your third serving of the stew he had made; although you had no clue as to what was in it, your starvation made it seem exceedingly delicious.

anonymous asked:

do you find the southern raiders episode to make zutara an unhealthy ship?

(sorry about the lengthy post but I really didn’t want to include anything under a cut because these receipts are serious)

Actually, I think it demonstrates the exact opposite of an unhealthy ship. And here are the reasons why ;

Firstly, in the beginning of the episode I would like to start with Zuko running and grabbing Katara and rolling her out of the way of falling rocks. That’s evidence that he not only cares for Katara’s life, but would risk his to save hers. (little did they know, that wouldn’t be the last time he’d risk his life for her in this episode.)

Secondly, There’s the short scene where Katara pulls him into Appa’s saddle as he falls from the air after his battle with Azula. And although I believe she would do that for anybody, I also believe that it shows her beginning to accept him as a part of their group. Well, until this next part.

Originally posted by the-spirit-of-the-avatar

Thirdly, we get a scene with Katara storming off after Zuko says “I’m touched, I don’t deserve this,” when the gaang is giving a toast to Zuko for basically saving them all that day. And then she responds with, “No, you don’t,” and storms off. Now, you’d think that all tings given and Zuko’s tendency to let jabs like that slip (aka any interaction/conversation with Mai) that he’d let this slip and move on. But he doesn’t. And you know why? Because he cares. He cares about her and wants to understand why she would make a remark like that and what he can to do fix it. And not just for himself, but for the good of the group because he knows that if they can’t get along, then there’s no way they can win a war fighting together but as enemies.

So he follows her, clearly upset, and confronts her about what’s been happening. See here with their conversation:

“This isn’t fair. Everyone here seems to trust me now. What is it with you?”

“Oh, everyone seems to trust you now? I want the first person to trust you, remember? Back in Ba Sing Se and you turned around and betrayed me! Betrayed all of us!”

And instead of yelling back, instead of coming up for some excuse as to why he did what he did, he reaches out and asks her:

“What can I do to make it up to you?” to which she responds with:

“You really wanna know? Maybe you can reconquer Ba Sing Se in the name of the Earth King. Or, I know, you can bring my mother back.” And then proceeds to shove him and walk away from the conversation.

Then, because he isn’t satisfied, he goes to her brother and asks him to tell him what happened to their mother. And in the middle of the conversation he stops and asks if he can remember anything about the ship that raided their village where Sokka proceeds to tell him that he remembers Sea Ravens on the flags. “The symbol of the Southern Raiders. Thanks Sokka.”

I hope you’re still paying attention because this is where it gets good.

He then goes and sits outside of Katara’s tent all night and waits for her to wake up. He had to have been just so distraught with knowing who possibly killed her mother that he couldn’t sleep and therefore camped out in front of her tent all night.

“You look terrible.”

“I waited out here all night.”

“What do you want?”

“I know who killed your mother, and I’m going to help you find him.”

Well all holy hell! Look at him, putting not only time and effort into finding out what was wrong with Katara, but also finding a reason as to why she hated him so, went to find answers, found them and is now trying to help her resolve said problems. MOVING ON!!

Moving on to where Katara states that she needs to borrow Appa.

Katara: “I need to borrow Appa.”

Aang: “Why? Is it your turn to take a little field trip with Zuko?”

K: “Yes, it is.”

A: “Oh, what’s going on?”

“K: “We’re going to find that man that took my mother from me.”

Zuko: “Sokka told me the story of what happened. I know who did it, and i know how to find him.” 

A: “Umm, and what exactly do you think this will accomplish?”

K: “I knew you wouldn’t understand.”

A: “Wait, stop, I do understand. You’re feeling unbelievable pain and rage. How do you think I felt about the sand benders when they stole Appa?”

Can we just stop a moment and think about how Aang literally fucking compared his pet to Katara’s fucking mother? HER MOTHER. And I realize that Aang lost his parents, obviously, but he didn’t know them, didn’t grow up with them and therefore had absolutely no emotional attachment to them as Katara did to her mother. So, that’s another strike on the Aang board.

Zuko: “She needs this, Aang. This is about getting closure, and justice.”

Aang: “I don’t think so. I think it’s about getting revenge.”

Katara: “Fine! Maybe it is. Maybe it’s what I need. Maybe it’s what he deserves.”

Aang: “Katara, you’re starting to sound like Jet.”

Katara: “This isn’t the same. Jet attacked the innocent. This man, he’s a monster.”

Sokka: “Katara, she was my mother too. But, I think Aang might be right.”

Katara: “Then you didn’t love her the way I did!

Then, after Aang gives his speech about revenge (and forgiveness, which comes into play at the end of the episode), they all go their separate ways- (where Zuko follows Katara after she walks off, presumably to discuss plans on how to go about leaving without the others knowing) (wouldn’t be the first time they met in private to do things without the other knowing, but that’s none of my business) -until later that night when Zuko and Katara appear in their “ninja” outfits, getting ready to leave on Appa when Aang confronts them about leaving anyways.

This entire scene is so important because it shows just how much Zuko has come to change, and to care about those around him, now. Zuko trusts her to make her own journey to finding her mothers’ killer. He trusts her because he knows what it’s like to stumble, what it’s like to make right decisions, to make wrong decisions on his way to the right choices. Aang expected Katara to automatically choose peace and forgiveness just because it’s what he believed was the right decision. Zuko understands that, in reality, that doesn’t happen. He respects Katara enough to let her have her own path to closure. 

Moving on:

Okay, quick summary of the rest of the episode until my next point. Zuko and Katara eventaully make it to the Southern Raiders fleet. But not before Zuko stating that Katara’s mother was a brave woman.

Then, there’s the journey to the Southern Raiders HQ, which is basically all battle strategy stuff so we won’t get into that.

Moving on to the bloodbending aspect of this episode.

This is where we see Katara’s patience be tested. When the man they both confront doesn’t know what either of them are talking about, Katara reaches into the depths of herself and bloodbends the man into looking her in the eyes. (but not before Zuko gets down on his knees and demand he looks her in the eyes and tell her what he did).

We also witness here: Zuko allowing Katara to do what she needs to do in order to get the information she needs. We all obviously knew she wasn’t going to kill the man, and so did Zuko and that’s why he didn’t try to stop her. Instead, he allowed her to let it out, to do her own thing and just be there to support her if she needed it instead of shoving his useless opinions down her throat. He was allowing HER to be in control because this was about HER.

Then, when she doesn’t get an answer and realizes that he’s not the man they’re looking for, she walks away. Then Zuko runs over to him and basically holds him by the throat and says, “If you’re not the man we’re looking for, then who is?” And when the man tells him who, he and Katara go to the mans’ village (Yon Rah) (spelling???) and follows him to the market and then to a street where they ambush him.

  There, Katara confronts him.

K: “Do you know who I am?”

YR: “No…I’m not sure.”

K: “Why don’t you take a closer look.” and she takes her mask down where we see the man come to the realization as to who she is.

YR: “Yes, yes I remember you now. You’re the little water tribe girl.”

*flashback sequence of the convo between YR and Katara’s mother and now back to the present*

K: “She lied to you. She was protecting the last water bender.”

YR: “Who?”

K: “Me!”

And then we see Katara angry to the point that she was prepared to kill this man. Forget everything we thought of Katara before, she was distraught and angry and mourning her mother and she was prepared to kill this man for what he’d done.

And Zuko, who stood there, he let her bloodbend and watched as the scene unfolded in front of him did nothing to stop her. And some of you may think “oh well he should have stopped her because if he was really changed then he wouldn’t condone killing someone” which is completely untrue because:

  • Later, he is prepared to kill not only his sister, but his father. He challenges his own sister to an Agni Kai, which if you didn’t already know, is a fight to the death. They weren’t just fighting for the throne for dramatic effect. Zuko was literally prepared to kill his own sister for the good of his country, for the good of the world and I think that is a very strong, very respectable and dramatic change to his character that I think helped his character arc immensely.

What was so important in this scene was he was there. He was there for Katara, whether she killed the man or not, he was there, ready to support her or let her cry or whatever she needed to do because he knew that that’s what she needed. That she needed to help herself and he was there letting her do just that. He wasn’t there shoving his opinions down her throat about how or why she shouldn’t kill the man because frankly, that man deserved to die that episode and if it wouldn’t have been a kids show I know damn well he would have. Maybe not by the hands of Katara, but possibly in another way.

Zuko was SO supportive of her and I wholeheartedly believe that if she had ended up killing that man, he would have been there to support her, and help her deal with the consequences. Whether it be telling the rest of the group what she did, or keeping it as a secret of their own. He would have done anything to make sure she felt as if she was being cared for.

— And then we have the ending where we see these two characters, Zuko and Katara, come full circle from where they were at the beginning of the episode. From the beginning of the series. And I think it’s honestly one of the most important scenes/lessons in the entire she and here’s why:

She forgives him. She forgives Zuko.

After everything he’s done to her, to their group, she forgives him. It’s the entire lesson throughout the entire episode: FORGIVENESS.

I think it’s so important to forgive those who have done you wrong, and Katara was able to set aside off of her problems, all of her hatred and anger towards Zuko and forgive him. And I just think that’s really beautiful.

It’s hard to forgive someone, especially someone who has caused so much destruction in his wake.

I think this episode was so, so so so incredibly important in so many different ways. It taught self control, it taught the value of life and how no one two people are the same. It taught forgiveness, and overall loving someone who was once your enemy. In canon, Katara may not have loved Zuko in a romantic way, but she loved him as a friend and thatis good enough for me.

TL:DR: No, I don’t find The Southern Raiders episode showing Zutara as an unhleathy ship.

Evolution of Leo Talking

Starlights and VIXX members are all proud of how Leo has slowly opened up and come out of his shell in these five years, even though it took him over three of them to grow more comfortable with talking and smiling in front of cameras. Let’s take a little journey because I’m ready to make you all have intense feels for Jung Taekwoon.

Debut days/2012

Back when Ravi was his interpreter and all he did was introduce himself with his famous resting bitch face or sing passionately:


 When he had to start answering questions on shows and struggled to speak for more than 10 seconds or become flustered when attention was brought onto him:

Those rare speaking moments when he wasn’t too conscious/aware of the cameras or when he had shade to throw (hearing his soft and pretty voice killed many Starlights):


VIXX LR activities started so he had to start doing introductions and was more comfortable with answering questions, joking around a little (AND SMILING) though Ravi still covered for him lol


He was finally comfortable enough to host an entire VIXX TV episode alone and talk/smile openly:

Everyone watched Taekwoon open up through the years and if that doesn’t get you feelsy then you must have one steely ass heart.

There were so many more videos I couldn’t fit into this one post, but I think this shows his growth quite clearly. He’s still quiet and shy even now, but he no longer freezes up in front of cameras and isn’t afraid to do things requested of him anymore. I remember seeing a few comments about how they ‘missed the old Taekwoon’, and I thought ‘But he looks so much happier now’. Camera-shyness and trouble voicing your thoughts is not a good thing at all. I’m sure many people can relate to him. 

What’s wonderful is all of the members did their best to help him, they never really tried to push him out of his comfort zone and let him come out at his own pace. Anyway, sorry for spamming your dash with this lengthy post, but I do hope some of you enjoy and cry with me ;D 

- from a little Starlight

So last week I didn’t go to community band because I fell asleep after dinner. I remembered when I woke up. But no one had called, texted, or emailed me to ask why I wasn’t there.
I saw the second chair player at a grad party the other day and he asked where I was. I explained and expressed my confusion as to why I hadn’t been contacted, especially when I had seen the first chair player at the movies the day before and said “see you at band” to him the day of.
Turns out that about half an hour into rehearsal, second chair asked where I was, first chair said I had probably just forgotten, and they both shrugged it off.
Trombones really care, guys.

How To Tell If You’re Getting Scamed

So if you play Flight Rising, you’ve probably already seen users Beg for things. Beggers are always pretty obvious, but some players are little more sneaky when it comes to taking your items from you. Here are a few tips that will hopefully help you and keep you from getting scammed by other players.

here are some examples of common scam tactics:

Probably the most common scam is usually a Private Message sent to you that says something along the lines of “Hi! i’m trying to buy a dragon for me (or sometimes they’ll say its for their “friend” to sound more nice) but i dont quite have the funds :( would you send me a small donation of 2,000t?”

Things to Notice:

  • They don’t show you the dragon. They probably wont show you the dragon because there is no dragon. they just want your money.
  • They are very very limited with detail. Lies are hard to keep up with, so a scammer will often keep things very simple and vague because they wont be able to remember all the fake details

“someone i love just died so im really hurt. I loved them so much…..also by the way i really wish i had this [really expensive item] :( “

this is the most distasteful and rude way to scam. but it happens. A scammer will make a fake post pretending to mourn over the death of someone who most likely did not actually die in order to receive gifts from players. (note: some players genuinely do loose loved ones, and will often make a post somewhere in the forums, and theres nothing wrong with sending them a gift but of course not everyone is truthful)

Things to notice:

  • HEAVY emphasis on wanting flight rising items. When people loose someone they love they’ll mostly talk about them for the majority of the post because they miss them. but scammy posts just kinda briefly mention that someone died and they’re oh so sad and only a light sprite or something will cheer them up. They’re just using exploiting a tragic circumstance to gain things

Messages that say things like above and have “sorry if you get this message twice, my computer glitches!” added to them are a huge red flag. as far as we know, flight rising does not send duplicate copies of PMs. Scammers will often add this to their messages because that means they are copy pasting the same message to other users and aren’t keeping track of who they’ve already sent it to. so if you get it  twice it’s because they don’t remember if they’ve already tried scamming you.

Also be wary of users who you are making a trade with that are hesitant to send their end of the deal or wont provide proof of ownership of what they’re trading you. remember, crossroads is your best friend. crossroads are much better than sending trades through pm because they require your approval. PM trades are really risky because a user can just take your items and not give anything back.

also, CHECK THEIR ACCOUNT! does their user page have comments from angry users who theyve scammed? (such as, “you haven’t sent me my payment yet/ wheres my dragon?” etc) is their forum history sketchy? make sure you check.

anyway sorry for the lengthy post but i hope this helps a little bit! stay safe!!
