So, You Wanna Talk to Other Bloggers

A Guide

We all have those bloggers or mutuals we adore, and we’d love to reach out and plant the seeds of a bomb-diggity friendship, but then the anxiety sets in… I’m not interesting! I’ll just be a bother! I’m sure they have better things to do! I feel you, trust me, I think most of us feel shy, awkward, or anxious trying to make friends or join in on conversations (welcome to tumblr, home of anxiety-ridden everyone). BUT NO LONGER SHALL WE KEEP TO OURSELVES, MY BRETHREN. Really, though, booklr needs to rise and the number one way to do that is through conversation, comments, and reaching out to make friends. 

Here are some tips for overcoming that pesky social anxiety!

  • Bloggers are just people! I don’t care how many thousands of followers they have, bloggers are all just people. I have a higher follower count, but I’m really just trying to manage adulthood without crying, like the majority of us. Whether they’re a super popular blogger or new on the scene, all of us are just people trying to live life, which really makes us all equal. We’re all on the same team so it’s okay to talk and reach out to one another <3
  • Bloggers love hearing from others! I think most of us wouldn’t be here if we didn’t want to talk to anyone. I’m sure there’s a few of us who aren’t too concerned with being social, but numerous bloggers love seeing comments, getting messages, or having people join conversations. This is social media, meaning being social is expected and conversing is welcome! Nothing makes me more excited than hearing from others! I used to have a lot of interaction on this blog and I miss the community feel. I know I’m not alone. Don’t you want to hear from others too? We’re all ready to talk but one of us has to make the first step.
  • Public platform. You’re watching a post as two bloggers discuss a book you love. You want to add something but… would that be butting in? NO. It’s not butting in. Blogging is public, all of this is out in the open. If people wanted others not to contribute, they’d have the conversation private on messenger! These conversations are out there, on your dash, and we’d love to hear what you’d add to the conversation!
  • You are not annoying. Really, friend, this goes with “all of us are people”. You think you’re annoying? I think I’m annoying. We’re all our own harshest critics. Chances are if you send me a message, I’ll be too busy trying not to seem super lame while thinking you must wish you never instigated this conversation. Take a deep breath, remember your perceptions of yourself are often too critical and send that message or post that comment!
  • Everyone is busy. Have you ever sent off a message and after a day or two of no response, you begin to deconstruct your message, noticing how ridiculous you are? No wonder they didn’t respond! I’m an idiot! Nope, nope, nope, you are not. We all have lives and sometimes that keeps us from responding right away. Don’t panic after reaching out and thinking you said the wrong thing. Nine times out of ten, people are just busy and haven’t got around to responding. 

Okay, you think, I’ll try joining conversations or adding comments. But what if I want to shoot a message to someone but don’t know what to say!? Breaking the ice can be painful and if you’re not sure what to say, it can be a major roadblock to talking to someone. Here are some ideas:

  • Talk about something the blogger recently posted! If a blogger just posted a photo/review/discussion/etc you really liked, it’s a great way to segue into friendship! Send them a message with your thoughts and build from there!
  • Compliments! Everyone loves compliments! Is there something about this person you really like? Are they super nice? Do they take excellent photos? Do you rely on their book recommendations? Tell them! Telling someone you admire something they do are something about them is a great way to introduce yourself!
  • Talk about books! THIS IS BOOKLR. We’re all obsessed and armpit deep in books we want to read and obsess over. Ask about their favorite book! Give them a recommendation! Talk about that new movie adaptation! Books are an easy start because we all love ‘em! So use that love to help you make friends!
  • Be honest! I’m usually pretty frank with my messages. I’ll send someone an “I think you’re really cool and would love to be friends!” message and move from there. I now have several incredible friendships I’m immensely grateful for. It may seem awkward or blunt, but sometimes it’s easy just to be up front.

And remember, sometimes you just won’t click with people. Sometimes you’ll reach out to someone, the conversation fizzles and you don’t talk again. THAT’S OKAY! We’re all different and we’re all not going to become inseparable friends. If your attempt to reach out or talk doesn’t go anywhere, remember that it’s not you. And don’t let it stop you from trying again! Maybe the next conversation you join will introduce you to a lifelong pal! <3

1991 FRIED GREEN TOMATOES, dir. Jon Avnet

You’re just a bee charmer, Idgie Threadgoode. That’s what you are. A bee charmer.

Two differing contemporary reviews of the film:

“The…trouble is the script’s implicit cowardice. Every attribute of the story of these two young women implies a lesbian attachment. For that lesbian love, Masterson rescues Parker, and that love warms their subsequent lives…But the screenplay omits any mention of this implied component.” - Stanley Kauffman, The New Republic

“[The filmmakers] show commendable tact and subtlety in the extraordinary friendship between Idgie and Ruth, allowing viewers to make up their own minds about the precise nature of the relationship.” - Abbie Bernstein, Hollywood Drama-Logue

FGT is a landmark film for many a queer viewer, presenting what appears to be a clear romantic storyline. It’s a nice change from the way lesbians are often presented in fetishized/oversexed ways in mainstream media, but in this case it may have been reigned in too much. It had to be watered down enough from its source material to qualify as a “women’s movie,” which is to say straight women, who the studio couldn’t afford to alienate. imo, the first reviewer is right - this is not commendable tact, it’s enforced cowardice.

It’s a shame we couldn’t have it all.

Omg I would love to read your take on the "I can hear you having mental breakdowns" AU because I can absolutely imagine Clarke being strung out with med school stress and Bell being a Mum and fretting over her

It only occurs to him that he has a new neighbour when he wakes to the sound of a distinctly feminine voice cursing out someone.

And it’s not like Murphy was ever quiet or a remotely considerate neighbour or anything, but Bellamy’s pretty sure that he’s never woken him up at six in the morning with his yelling. Huffing, he shrugs on a shirt, shuffles over to the kitchen to make himself a cup of coffee. He has to be up in an hour for work anyway, so there’s no point in trying to go back to sleep.

He does, however, start feeling a little concerned when the muffled swearing grows progressively louder instead of abating. Maybe his new neighbour is actually hurt or something, and the increasingly profane swear words are her way of expressing her distress. It’s plausible, right? The nice, neighbourly thing to do would be to check up on her. Or at the very least, maybe pound on the wall and tell her, in no certain terms, to shut the fuck up.

As tempting as the latter option is, he finds himself edging out of the door anyway, crossing the hallway to knock at her door cautiously.

The door jerks open at the second knock, and he he has to hide his surprise at the figure standing by the doorway. She’s a lot tinier than he expected her to be, dressed in stained scrubs with her hair piled up into a messy bun, stray strands drifting over her collarbone distractingly.

She arches a brow over at him, the tilt of her chin challenging. “Yes?”

“Uh, hi. I live over at 5C? Just next to you?” He gestures over at his ajar apartment door, resisting the urge to make a snide remark about how thin the walls are in the complex. “And you just— I don’t know what’s happening, but you’ve been yelling for the past hour or so? I just wanted to make sure you’re not being murdered, like, five feet away from me.”

Rapunzel’s enemy was truly a subversive episode in Western media for children. Most shows will take the easy route when handling topics like dislike and characters arguing; make everyone become friends in the end. I bet anyone can remember at least a dozen kids’ shows where an episode about conflict ended with everyone holding hands all ready to live in rural harmony together.

Originally posted by tangledbea

Well, Tangled Series wants to take a more mature and realistic route with this. First Rapunzel is shocked to learn that someone might *gasp* NOT like her. And even worse, that someone is a sweet and popular old man! Rapunzel has lead a sheltered life where she got extremely lucky on her first adventure as she touched just the right buttons with the pub thugs (“Dreams!”) and was able to reach stern Maximus. But now our princess is actually living among other people and has to deal with all the package social life can bring.

The episode seems to take the traditional route as Rapunzel disguises herself to learn how to gain Monty’s approval. She bonds with him and even saves his life. In any other show, gratitude would make him give up his resentment immediately. But Tangled Series is subversive with the solution. Rapunzel and Monty do not make up and actually part ways as “not friends”, the one thing they can agree on. Actually, Monty holds her disguise against her since honestly, tricking people is not nice.

It might seem like a harsh solution but I think it’s something kids and adults alike need to learn to accept. Monty might be grateful for Rapunzel but their disagreements are too deep to overcome so easily. Sure, friendship is not about completely agreeing with one another. But “traditionalism vs. change” and “order vs. freedom” are pretty heavy things to disagree on. And like the episode states, not everyone has to like everyone. Monty and Rapunzel have a nice “agree to disagree” situation going on. It’s also refreshing to see Rapunzel’s temper again. We know she is able to get really angry and quite fast too (remember when she stood up to Eugene and pub thugs in the movie?) so it’s nice to see her standing up for herself even in not-so-nice ways. She is not mean but some edge is always great to see in a princess.

As a side note, the episode seemed to address one common complaint about Rapunzel; that everyone loves her. It’s not unusual to hear Disney fans bring this up as a reason to dislike Rapunzel, even though her interractions in her movie where limited and lucky. But after this episode we can safely say that actually, some folks do dislike her in her story.

  • they tried to get noodle to eat brussels sprouts when she was little and they went on a health kick. she didn’t understand what they were called and thought they were called russel sprouts. to this day brussels sprouts are referred to as russel sprouts by everyone in the band and this is just an accepted phrase now. whenever they pass the produce aisle someone inevitably yells “hey russel!” and holds up a brussels sprout when he looks over (at least, 2d and noodle do. murdoc tends to just chuck a brussels sprout at russ’s head from all the way across the aisle and then pretend it wasn’t him.) 
  • they all love the beatles so much. they tend to play beatles songs to warm up before practice; can’t buy me love was a favorite of noodle’s when she was little because 2d would dance with her and swing her around during the instrumental part while they sang. i want to hold your hand is also a popular one because during the bridge — “and when i touch you i feel happy inside” — 2d and noodle go all fake-sentimental and dramatically sigh and swoon all over the room. usually they sing to russ and get him to clasp their hands during this part or stroke murdoc’s face dramatically (he always pushes them away but he’s laughing.) one of the first songs murdoc learned was blackbird and he tends to play it to himself in his room when he’s alone, singing quietly. he taught it to noodle when she was really young and caught him singing it and even now, sometimes they’ll sit in the studio with their guitars singing blackbird together — it’s their thing.

skams third season has ended

we have to wait until the end of February / begin of March for new episodes so i wanted to make a list of what to watch next

there is simply no show like skam and we all have fallen in love with isak and even this season, their relationship is so important to me

being gay made it really hard to find representation in media so this post focuses on the happy and positive portrayal of lgb teenagers in movies and tv series


Obvious shows like the fosters, shameless, pll, the 100, skin, glee, degrassi, buffy… are excluded from this list, many of them are too well known already, not really happy or good


but im a cheerleader: 

this comedy from 1999 is about megan who gets send to conversation therapy by her concerned friends and parents, sound terrible but is acutally really funny and cute and has a happy ending, natasha lyonne (from oitnb) plays the lead, its definitely more artsy, not as realistic as skam

the way he looks:

a brazilian movie about the blind, gay, 16 year old leonardo who falls in love with gabriel, the movie deals with self acceptance, first love, blindness, friendship and is really relatable, one of my favorite movies

the get down:

a netflix show (by baz luhrmann and nas!!!! even would love that) about the beginnings of hip hip and rap, has the best story line, music, characters, the most amazing girl friendship and a gay/bi character in a interracial relationship, just watch it, will be worth it, literally one of the best shows of 2016 (also the second part of the first season airs soon)

jongens:

a dutch coming out movie, Sieger meets Marc who becomes a member of his athletics team and they fall in love, really nice and realistic, i recommend this to everyone, i just love this movie so much

zomer:

also a dutch movie, about an interracial lesbian relationship, seems nice and there was a good review of it but i didnt watch it yet so it may or may not be good or have a happy ending

eyewitness:

got really popular on tumblr so you may know it, its a bout two gay teens who witness a triple homicide, its more of a crime but with gay main characters, based on a norwegian series, i also recommend that (its low budget and bad but i liked it)

pariah:

2011 movie about a 17 year old African american lesbian, not completely happy end (still happy tho), cinematically good

tschick:

a german road movie about two 14 year old boys, i loved the book and they finally made a movie!! one characters gay, doesnt really focus on that but its one of the only german movies with non-white gay character so yeah…

show me love:

swedish movie about two girls in love, it is the best teenage lesbian movie, omg i love this one

closet monster:

more like a horror movie, a bit confusing, about the gay teenager oscar, kinda happy ending?

moonlight:

2016 movie about an african american gay man, the movies is parted into three parts of his life, one is his teenage life, one of the best movies this year, 99% on rotten tomatoes

hidden kisses: 

about a 16 year old boy who falls in love with a class mate, they face a lot of bulling, may have a sad ending, i can´t find something about the end and i havent watch it

i killed my mother: 

a movie by xavier dolan, hes gay himself and play the main character kits about the main characters relationship with his mother and his boyfriend, i really recommend this 

just watch any movie by xavier dolan

esteros:

a mexican movie about two men who were in love as kids and meet again as adults, has a 100% on rotten tomatoes

being 17:

french movie about an interracial relationship between two guys

casual:

in the second season the teenage daughter gets a girlfriend

in the flesh:

a zombie show, the main character is the pansexual kieren, this is one of the most beautful shows ive seen, i fell in love with it, but it git canceled way too soon

cucumber & banana: 

i watched this but i dont actually remember a lot, i think both center around the same group of lgbt characters, i belive its well made and good 




not so happy movies i wanted to include:

the summer of sanaile:
center of the world


movies that come out soon


simon vs the homosapiens agenda

heaters reboot with a black lesbian and a gender queer lead 

call me by your name

the miseducation of cameron post (movie adaption of the book, about a lesbian teenager)

Panel: Sebastian Stan imagine

Being famous was something you never thought would happen. It just seemed like a dream almost, you still couldn’t believe it. Being in the Marvel movies gave you a huge break into the world of fame. And here you were at comic con with a cast of incredible people you thought you would never meet.

“Here you go sweet cheeks.” Sebastian deep voice startled you as he leaned over and place a cup of coffee in front of you. You quickly turned so that you were now almost chest to chest.

“God, you’re a lifesaver Seba.” You said taking the cup of your favorite coffee.

“Where’s my cup of fresh coffee?” Mackie asked with a fake pout as he looked over the the of you. Everyone noticed the sexual tension between you and Sebastian but yet neither of you ever made the big move towards the other. Sebastian rolled his eyes at his dear close friend.  

“So you nervous for your first con?” Sebastian asked as he noticed you drowning the coffee.

“What if I say something stupid?” You asked looking at him with wide eyes.

“Well then at least you’re cute.” He teased making you smack his chest.

“Yah! That’s not fair! I saw her first!” Dabin shouted at Christian. “I’m older!” Christian screamed back. “Why are you to fighting again?” You questioned. They looked over to you and their eyes widened. “Y/N!”

You met Dabin first. The two of you were the same age. You remember exactly how the two of you became friends. You were on the swing set all by yourself. You were around seven at this time. You hated it here. You recently moved to Seoul. One thing you truly hated more than the preppy little girls, the outfit. It wasn’t really the whole outfit, it was the skirt!

Dabin walked up to the swing set and sat in the swing next to you. “What’s wrong?” He asked. “I hate it here. I wanna go home.”

“I do too. Maybe we could keep each other company.”

“Sure, I guess.”

You talked with him until it was time to go back to class.

“Thank you for hanging out with me today. Same time, tomorrow?” He asked.

You nodded. He turned around and began to head toward his class, then it hit you. You didn’t know his name.

“HEY! WAIT!” You screamed after him.

He turned back to you. “We never told each other our names!”

“Dabin! Hong Dabin! You are?” He said loudly to make himself heard because you were quite far from him.

“Y/N! Y/N L/N!”

The two of you became the bestest of friends. The two of you became such great friends, he wanted you to meet his friend who was two years older than him. You were excited to meet him.

You walked with Dabin to the local playground. When you got there, there wasn’t that many people. Just mothers and their little babies. Then there was one kid who was bigger than the rest. Dabin ran out up the kid. “Christian!” “Dabin!”

They shared a hug. Dabin pulled back and looked back to you. “Come on! Don’t be shy.”

You walked up to the two of them.

“This is Y/N? She’s pretty.”

You felt your cheeks warm up at his compliment.

“Well, Y/N this is Christian. Christian this is Y/N.”

“Nice to meet you.” You said before you bowed.

“Nice to meet you too.”

The three of you were the bestest of friends. You couldn’t be separated. Your family said you hung out with them too much and that you were starting to act like a boy. You ignored it and continued to do you, like the amazing person you were.

As all three of you grow up, things were changing, but all of you were still close. You were even closer than ever. Christian became a musician turned director and founded his group, DPR. Dabin became a rapper and went under the stage name, DPR Live. Then there was you. You had become an actress. A well respected and loved actress if I say so myself.

As the older you grew, something changed about you. And both Christian and Dabin saw it. When they were kids, they didn’t think it would happen, but it did. Dabin and Christian were both had feelings for you.

You never felt that way about either of them. Even if you had doubts, you had to stop yourself because you loved and cared for the both of them as brothers. You knew it would ruin your friendship to date one of them.

Today you were catching with them. It had been awhile since you were busy staring in movies and dramas. You treated them to a nice lunch at a nearby cafe from your agency.

“It’s so nice to be hanging out with the two of you again! Just the three of us! I’ve missed the two of you so much.”

“I miss you too!” The both of them said at the same time.

You couldn’t help but giggle.

“I’m gonna go get some Boba. You guys want some?” You asked.

“HONEYDEW!” They answered together before staring each other down.

“Whatever, weirdos.”

You walked over the counter to placed an over with three large sized Bobas.

“Yah! Why are you flirting with Y/N?!” Dabin asked Christian.

“Because I like her.”

“What?! I like her!”

“Step off Dabin. I’ve liked her since we were in high school. She used to come to me for help with her homework since I was two grades above the two of you. I clearly deserve a chance with her.” Christian sassed.

Dabin scoffed. “Yah! That’s not fair! I saw her first!” Dabin shouted at Christian. “I’m older!” Christian screamed back. “Why are you to fighting again?” You questioned. They looked over to you and their eyes widened. “Y/N!” They both said shocked.

“How come you guys are being so weird and saying everything at the same time?” You questioned before giving them their Boba.

They stayed quiet and took a sip.

“Now you guys wanna shut up. Something is up with the two of you. How about we go to playground after this and just swing for a bit, you know like we used to?”

“Yeah, that sounds nice.” Dabin spoke up before taking a sip from his Boba.

After the lunch, the three of you walked to the playground. Christian sat on the last swing to the right. You sat next to him. Dabin sat in the swing to the left of you. It was silent for a bit.

You looked down at the ground. Dabin looked over to you with soft eyes.

“Is there something wrong?” He asked you.

“I just I fear that, one day we won’t be friends. We’ll separate and go our own ways. I have dreams when I sleep. Dreams that start off good, but end with the three of us not being friends.”

Dabin put his hand on your shoulder. “Don’t think like that. We’ll always be your friends, Y/N.”

“Can I ask you something?” You questioned.

“Of course, Anything.”

“There’s something up between you and Christian. You two aren’t acting like the old you. The two of you were the bestest of friends. But today something is up with you, the both of you. Tell me. What is wrong with the two of you? Is it me?”

“No.”

“Yes.”

You turned your head to see Christian looking at you and Dabin.

“What?”

“It is you. Dabin knows it’s you too! The reason we’ve been acting like we have is because both of us have feelings for you.”

Your eyes widened. “What?” You repeated clueless.

“I thought it was obvious. Especially the way Dabin showed his affection, he was the most obvious.” Christian added.

“I’m the reason behind it?”

“If I could have stopped myself I would have, but I couldn’t. I don’t wanna ruin our friendship, but I also don’t want to see you with anyone else. Not even Christian!”

Christian scoffed. “As if she’d want to be with someone who’s as much as a pushover as you, Dabin.”

“Shut it!”

“Enough you two! I love the both of you, as friends and brothers. Nothing more, nothing less. I just want all of us to be friends forever. I don’t want to choose between you. Remember the plan for my wedding we made when I was younger?”

“Yeah, I remember like it was yesterday. We agreed instead of bridesmaids, you’d get us in suits standing behind you as you got married.” Dabin said.

“Yes. That has been the plan since we were kids. I want the two of you behind me, not just one. What happens if I date one of you? The other will hate each other. I can’t fall for either one of you. You guys are the brothers I always wanted, please don’t do this to me.”

You were on the verge of tears. Dabin looked over to Christian and mouthed the words. “Look what you did!”

“ME?!” Christian mouthed back.

“Y/N, please don’t cry.”

You stayed silent.

Christian looked up the sky. “It must be around eight. The sun is setting. The sun set used to be our favorite thing to look at when we were kids. We’d lay in the grass. Y/N would always be in the middle. Hell, we didn’t even know what feelings were. Those were the good days. Those were the good times.”

“Could we do it again, for my sake?” You asked.

“Of course.”

The three of you stood up and went into an empty grassy plain. The three of you laid down in the grass. Christian on the right, you in the middle, and Dabin on the left. It was silent, but you enjoyed the silence.

You couldn’t hide the involuntary smile that appeared on your face. Christian turned to his side to see you smile.

“See I knew the sun set would make you smile. You okay now?”

“Yeah, I’m fine.”

“I won’t fall in love again for a while.” Dabin said aloud.

“Same here.” Christian admitted.

“I’m sure there are two lovely and beautiful women out there who would be dying to fall in love with you. But you guys won’t let them come in between us, right?”

“Never.” They both say at the same time.

Y/N’s POV

The moon peeked out from behind the clouds and your legs took you away from the sounds of yelling and guns cocking, the leaves crunching under their boots. Your ears couldn’t help but signal that they were far from you now and you could finally slow down. You looked around, your eyes scanning the almost pitch black woods as you panted and trotted along towards his house. Thankfully, your eyes were better than others and you could see perfectly clear in the dark without tripping over any logs or rocks any normal human couldn’t see.

Stereotypes: The Female Perspective of being “too” within society

A few of you had messaged me with interest of reading my grad school research paper on gender stereotypes within Pitch Perfect, I’ve excluded some of it, but thought you may be interested in the rest :) Let me know what you think, I would love if we could discuss and would love to hear what you think!!!!


“Okay, so all a woman has to do is ignore society’s expectations, be ambitious,
sit at the table, work hard, and then it’s smooth sailing all the way.
What could possibly go wrong?”
– Sheryl Sandburg, Lean In (p. 39)

From a young age, we, as human beings, are taught how to eat, dress, ride a bike, communicate, and if we are really lucky – we are taught to love. This love still comes with innate beliefs educated, often subconsciously, by those who raise us, those we befriend, and those we come across in all stages of life. These ‘stereotypes’, often learned through behavior not words, is most often not even recognized as stereotypes because they often impact us in ways we do not consciously, or verbally, acknowledge.

Now, let’s try to break these stereotypes down even further and focus solely on the female population and what females are often inherently taught growing up within society. Habitually, these teachings come from our female parental figures, guardians, grandmothers, sisters, and friends who are teaching without the knowledge that they are helping to shape our beliefs and opinions for the rest of our female lives. These unconscious teachings include: the appropriate way to act around males, how to look and act like a lady (never less), how to speak our minds – but not too much, never too much; how to be the perfect student, the perfect wife, the perfect mother, the perfect employee. It does not matter if by doing these things we are living as our best selves, if we are being the polite, quiet female we have been conditioned to be, nothing else is of equal relevance. Though, these stereotypes are learned behaviors through our peers.  

Exploring the mass media example of the film Pitch Perfect, released in 2012, the then-Indie-now-major-blockbuster-success focuses on an all-female acapella college group trying to find their way. The film pushes the limits of group female interactions and stereotypes of how women ‘should’ behave within society.  The film could be argued for many different stereotypes as it is packed full of theories begging to be discussed. To name a few, we cross paths with the overweight female – who introduces herself as ‘Fat Amy’, when questioned why she calls herself that, she answers (jokingly?) “So twig bitches like you don’t do it behind my back.” There’s the openly gay member (who is also African-American) of the group who they chose to have play the utmost extreme version of being both a lesbian and a black female. There’s the very exaggerated sexual member of the group, the quiet Asian character, and the overly cocky male members of the rival group. We also get to enjoy the banter of a misogynist male and provocative female acapella announcer team. But nothing quite speaks the weight like the female and male stereotypical roles thrown to the audience throughout the film.  

The female lead character ‘Beca Mitchell’, played by Anna Kendrick, is an incoming freshman at Barden University. Though young, Beca is extremely driven, sarcastic, antisocial, independent, and confident in her goal of becoming a music producer and doesn’t plan to focus on much of anything else.

Pause.

A woman… independent and driven in a successful film? Yes, I know it’s a strange concept. But that can’t just be all she is, she obviously needs more ‘depth’.

Country: England

Ok so I already submitted one of these but I left a ton out. I’m such a pain.
Ok well for starters, I’m a huge believer in feminism (intersectional, duh) and just equal rights for everyone in general. I definitely won’t tolerate any kind of racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia etc.
I’m also an avid reader/film watcher/music listener. My favourites are…
Film: perks of being a wallflower, la la land, love rosie, and begin again
Music: ed sheeran, dodie clark, lewis watson, haim, the staves (but I listen to pretty much everything)
Books: literally anything Holly Bourne has written, Looking for Alaska, Eleanor and Park, and a whole bunch of others.
That being said, I will read/watch/listen to pretty much anything anyone recommends.
Aside from that, I’m also a huge fan of hockey (toronto maple leafs(!!) & new york rangers mostly), musicals (my faves atm being hamilton and heathers), cats, poetry, writing, and learning languages. I’m only fluent in English but I can write and speak pretty decent French and German, I know some Spanish and I’m trying to learn Swedish

The idea of having friends all over the world has intrigued me for a long time, and I think having a penpal would just be so cool! I would prefer to email (at least at the beginning) as my parents are a tad skeptical about me giving my email address to strangers, but I’d love to ‘snail mail’ at some point in the future!

There’s probably tons I left out again but oh well.

Hope you’re having a nice day wherever you are :)

Preferences: Relatively close to my age, maybe 16-20. As I mentioned before, no racists, sexist, transphobes, xenophobes, homophobes, etc. You don’t have to be a feminist, but please no anti-feminists. Other than that, I have no preferences about country, religion, or sexuality as that doesn’t change the value of anyone’s friendship :)

beyondtrash-voltrondumpster  asked:

Could you do headcanons for when the paladins ask out their crush, the reader, but are rejected?

Yes! Of course! Thank you so much for the request. This is more of a modern AU I guess? I still tried to include Coran and Allura but I didn’t know what to do with friends or no friends thing when you’re in space and you cant not be friends when you’re stuck in space.

 

I hope that made sense. Also this was very unnecessarily long and probably seems rushed but I tried :D

 

credit to @gayrussianicequeen for helping me out with the Pidge one

 

Shiro

 

• okay, first off, it’s very obvious Shiro is HEAD OVER HEELS for you
•he’s the type of person to not even realize his feelings until later on, even then, it’ll really take him a while to actually gather up the courage to even go up to you.
• he gets flowers
•maybe a kit-kat bar too, or whatever your favorite candy is.
•he’s quite traditional, actually..
•now, depending on where you are, he may or may not go up to you. Garrison? Eh, maybe, is it the end of the day and you’re just leaving? Hell yeah why not.
•if it were that case, he’d probably do his best to keep the flowers perfect, and you would ask about them all day only for him to avoid the question and change the subject as well.
•he’d pull the flowers out and some random candy or stuffed bear, start explaining himself and his feelings toward you, and top it off with a lovely but awkwardly cute smile, extreme blushing, and then shoving his face into the flowers and exhaling.
•now, depending on your answer, whether you’d like to stay friends or not, either way, he’d be heartbroken.
•if you want to stay friends ; I feel that he would be a lot less heartbroken, but it would be very difficult, because, I mean he likes you and finds you attractive so seeing you everyday after you reject him is soooooooo awkward especially for him.
•if you find that it’s awkward too, and don’t want to stay friends ; he’d be super devastated, would most likely go home and sulk while watching comedies and horror movies to keep his mind off of it.
•doesn’t work tho because he watched It Follows and now he thinks someone’s after him and doesn’t sleep and ends up thinking about you. Oops?

 

Lance

 

•why would you even say no honestly
•jk anyway
•so, knowing Lance and the way he is there would a LOT of build up toward the official confession.
•puns about how beautiful/handsome you are, how amazing you look today even though you didn’t even brush your hair and was up until 3
•pick-up lines toward the end of the day.
•he’d probably drive you somewhere (I hope he has a license) like a small shop down the street from yours or his house.
•buy you some candy and a slushee (if ya like them)
•will definitely without a doubt have his arm around your shoulder 99.9999998% of the time so just, let’s hope you’re comfortable with that.
•when it actually comes to asking you out he’ll stutter and then blurt the rest of it out with his eyes shut so tight.
•when you say no prepare to feel extremely guilty because instead of looking sad about it he does that thing where he tries to act all cool about it but he’s just…
•"no, no really it’s fine. here I can drive you home if you want. no really, it’s fine don’t worry. it’s my fault really so sorry to make you uncomfortable.“
•probably doesn’t answer any text messages from you or anyone else.
•he does hope to stay friends but wouldn’t mind if you didn’t, he thinks it’s understandable but would still beat himself up over it.

 

Keith

 

•once again why would you say no you’re lucky this kid even likes you a little bit I feel like he’ll yell at inanimate objects if he stubbed his toe or smthn
•but anyway.
•Keith is very attracted to you whether it’s because you’re nice, or you seem to look great no matter what you do
•like Shiro he keeps it simple and traditional and wouldn’t want to go all out because he’s afraid to be rejected (foreshadowing bye) in the end when he planned something so nice
•definitely got you starbursts or sour patch kids and if you don’t like them he’ll just put them away and get on with it
•he totally eats them later on k bye
•definitely got like one carnation.
•when he finally asks you he stutters but once it’s out he seems way too calm, like a lot calmer than you thought
•once he hears the no come from your mouth he just shuts down and says ‘oh, oh ok’
•seems kinda pissed in your eyes but he’s mostly angry at himself if anything. will definitely get up and apologize and then nod and walk off.
•please apologize to the boy at least, he’s very sensitive when it comes to opening up and I feel like after that he would be WAYYY too hesitant when it comes to opening up to people especially when he feels attracted to them

 

Hunk

 

•please don’t say no pleasepleSeplaesse
•he’s so wholesome and pure and lovely how
•now hunk being that way is sometimes a disadvantage, being too kind at times can get you killed. well not necessarily killed but it can cause trouble, especially if it’s the naive kind.
•though Hunk is very smart, so I doubt he would be clueless about anything.
•I do feel that Lance would probably be way too encouraging and say stuff like , “Hunk, buddy pal friendo, quit your worrying! They definitely like you, who wouldn’t! You’re a great person….” and blah blah blah
•Eventually goes up to you with some sort of food in his hands, most likely your favorite or one that triggers happy memories between you and him, and/or the paladins +Coran and Allura
•Pops the question, definitely looks dead inside
•literally has no expression and are, are his eyes,,, crossing?
•quite unfocused so when you finally and hopefully politely turn him down, you think he didn’t hear you.
•say his name a couple times and that’s when you realize that he did in fact hear you and he’s kind of just processing the information
•definitely just goes oMo and then falls to his knees and begs for your forgiveness
•"oh my gosh Y/n I am so sorry I made it awkward I didn’t mean it I just care for you and all that and I still wanna be friends please oh gosh I ruined our friendship”
•please tell him it’s ok and then pat his back and take him to a movie or home or whatever just help the poor boy he’s too sweet oh gosh
•take him to the carnival or arcade to cheer him up if you stay friends which is most likely because Hunk is too nice.

 

Pidge

 

•asked Lance for advice on how to do it
•immediate regret
•then went to ask Coran, but kinda just clapped her hands together, stared into space, and turned around after she thought about a possible 7-day lecture on asking people out
•Went straight to Shiro and Allura and they gave the best advice out of everyone except Allura started talking about stuff from Altea and dating in Altea and just paused and ran lolol
•took most of their advice, which was to just get straight to the point and maybe get them something
•got them something she made herself (she definitely made you a knockoff GameCube which actually was way better than the original somehow)
•she was flustered but it didn’t exactly seem like it because she wasn’t stuttering but her face was so goddamn red man
•kinda just ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ after she says it
•right when hears the word no, that word never leaves her head for the next week or maybe even two
•if you stay friends she’s definitely happy and won’t even mind if she still has feelings for you, she’s just glad that you two can still hang out together
•if you don’t want to stay friends she just awkwardly laughs and when she’s going to leave she apologizes and lets you keep what she made for you (no buts or ifs she insists you keep it)
•definitely needs to let out some type of steam so she probably just roasts everyone if they bother her peace and quiet times.

its-moneyman  asked:

What happened in the BAD SCENE?

it’s really bad so i have been vague about it, tw for rape:

throughout the movie, the protagonist visits this religious girl and they have a nice friendship, up until this point the protagonist has been a really likable character with a lot of charm, but there’s this awful scene that comes out of nowhere where the girl is getting dressed, and “our hero” walks in on her and attemps to force himself on her, before he comes to his senses and then gets knocked out with a lamp. the next day he attempts to apologize to her and she says “i’m the one who should be sorry, for hitting such a wonderful person..”?????

it’s so awful and leaves such a bad taste. it never even gets mentioned again outside of a vague conversation where the protagonist debates with someone if “maybe i’m the bad guy”, as well as a lot of themes in the movie about the bad things mankind is capable of, they really could have gone with like, anything else? i’m completely down for protagonists having bad sides to them but they did it in such a tasteless way.

Name: Laura
Age: 17
Country: Slovakia

Hey! My name’s Laura! I’m soon to be 18 (in August), and if anyone cares, I’m a Leo and an ENFP. I’m a cheerful idealist going through a bad period- trying to figure out who I am or should be while lowkey failing makes me quite depressed. I’m a huge dork, I joke a lot but it’s funny only like 80% of the time. I study at at a biligual school, where majority of my subjects are in English, so I’m totally fluent. I obviously speak Slovak, as well as Czech and I understand Polish a biiit. I study German, however I manage it better in the written form rather than the oral. I’d like to learn a new language but I’m too unproductive to do so…

I love History, memes, space, indie bands… I used to watch anime and still am in the Hetalia and YOI fandom, my favorite series are House of Cards, Breaking Bad, AHS, Sherlock… I enjoy writing and drawing, although I’ve been lacking the inspiration for the latter lately. I love horror movies and goofy comedies. I also love psychology, politics and international relations, I consider myself a peaceful feminist and I support LGBT+ community, I represent the B in the name.

I’d like to find someone who would be willing to chat about life and all, maybe even exchange letters eventually.

Preferences: Anyone from 16 to 21, who is open-minded and nice.
