I would just like to say THANK YOU for all your gorgeous Symmarah fan art. It makes me smile to see this underrated ship be blessed with art from you whenever I check the tags.
ahhhh THANK YOU for all your support!!! My reach has taken a hit lately ((and I’m not sure if it’s really because of tumblr’s algorithms because the activity tracker is crap)) so whenever someone sends me a nice message through asks or leaves wonderful notes on my tags it just keeps me going (ko-fi support is real great too!). Small things like these really mean a lot to me!!
So here’s a little something just for you~~
(also I’m not the only artist contributing to Symmarah, afaik @darkelfslair and @thehypertuna have posted fanart recently as well! please support them too!)
Hi Peaches, I just wanted to thank you for what you do. Im a transgirl with pretty little support in real life and a history of depression and self harm. Youve helped me to actually care about myself again. Just seeing how positive you are gives me hope. Today was the first day in a long time where I woke up and didnt think about how much I hated myself. For the first time in a long while, I felt good about myself. So again, thank you for what you do. It means a lot.
I hope mornings like that come regularly to you, and I’ll be doing my best to keep up with those great vibes. You’ll always have a home here <3
Thanks for writing in, I’m so glad I’m able to help with my work :)
Dear white women feminists who loved Wonder Woman–
Listen, I also loved Wonder Woman. But I also think that Diana would be the first to note that we are not free until we are all free. So if you posted a thousand times about how important WW was for little girls to see, then I hope you are also prepared to post a thousand times about how important the new Black Panther movie is for black kids- girls and boys- to see.
I saw Wonder Woman, and I teared up the first time she stormed the battlefield in her full regalia. But, as a black woman, I couldn’t not notice that the women who looked like me played supporting, and largely non-speaking, background parts. Black Panther is the chance for women who look like me to see ourselves as the heroes in our own story. To see ourselves as warriors, as epic royalty, as fully actualized superheroes. In a major studio blockbuster, no less. Never- not ever- has that happened before.
I dunno if there is one so I will make one for you!
As we know, young Harry was very much looking forward to having someone to fuss over! And he got what he wanted!
HE WOULD NOT LIVE WITH ANYONE ELSE!!!
LOUIS NEVER DOES HIS OWN LAUNDRY
At least he is upfront about it!
DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE COOKING!
CAN YOU BELIEVE HOW MUCH HARRY SPOILS HIM?!?!?!
HOW HARD IS IT TO WHISK?!? I MEAN… hE JUST WANTED HARRY’S ATTENTION AND BOY WAS IT READILY GIVEN!
Feeding his tiny boyfriend
Buying mint chocolate chip ice cream for his husband (Look at Harry’s hands though)
Carrying Louis’s jacket in case he gets cold.
But even if he forgets, it’s okay, because Harry is ready to give his coat to Louis!!
His FACE is like ‘I HAVE ONE, LOU! LET ME GET IT TO YOU’
LOUIS HAD A COLD AND HARRY PROMPTLY GOT HIM THROAT LOZENGES TO SOOTHE HIS SORE THROAT!
Fetching Louis his glasses
WHAT EVEN WAS THIS? HARRY WAS TRYING TO HELP LOUIS AND SO HE GRABBED THE PHONE CHARGER (CASE?) FROM INBETWEEN LOUIS’S LEGS?!?!?! AND LOUIS? DID NOT? FLINCH? wHAt
HARRY KNOWS. AND HE HAPPILY PROVIDES SAID ATTENTION.
*HUSBAND FACE ACTIVATED*
OF COURSE NIALL WOULD ASK HARRY IF LOUIS’S FEET WERE STILL SMELLY
Don’t even get me started on this! Harry held a party for Louis’s 21st bday and it was GRAND! All of Louis’s friends and family were there (so were harry’s) and THEY WORE MATCHING SHIRTS!! (fyi The shirt that Harry wore was worn by Louis during his mum’s wedding)
Louis’s very own curly cheerleader!!
Harry wore Jay’s wedding bracelet for weeks after the wedding. And when it was frayed, he tied it to his bag. Talk about being supportive!
In conclusion, Harry loves, supports and cherishes Louis!
One of the worst things about being a kpop fan is when you start school and all of a sudden you have to pretend like you want to socialize all the time and care about your school work but in reality I’m just waiting for comebacks, photo shoots, and anything else that will kill me
If you’re in NYS, DO NOT SIGN UP WITH FIDELIS CARE.
If you support real religious freedom (i.e. your religious choices are between you and your god, you have a right to privacy)
if you have endometreosis or any other complex reproductive-system-related condition
if you want to keep seeing your gyno, and want to be able to access all the services your gyno provides
DO NOT SIGN UP WITH FIDELIS.
They don’t have the guts to say this anywhere you’d notice it while you’re perusing the plan benefits– I actually did try quite hard to go through all the fine print but I missed it. And clearly, New York State expects you to miss it. Because when I signed up, after a couple of months, they sent me this letter, which clearly indicates that they didn’t expect me to already have realized this:
“Fidelis, the health plan you joined, does not pay for family planning services.” (That last is bold and underlined.)
The back side of the letter tells me to go to Planned Parenthood. Here’s the whole text:
(Photo is of a list of places in several counties where you can get family planning services. Note that one of the counties in the list contains no family planning clinics and lists no options.)
I have a primary care physician who does my gyno care. This tells me, in effect, that I’m going to have to find another gyno to do that, because my insurance company won’t reimburse my PCP for a visit where she mentions birth control.
Now, what my personal medical needs are, are immaterial to this discussion, but I am making this post because I know a lot of people are trying to choose plans right now. And it is NOT OBVIOUS that Fidelis is a Catholic company– they changed their name from Catholic Health Plan of NYS for that reason, I think.
So– BE AWARE, because they’re sure as hell not going to make it obvious.
I don’t know if this is legal in any other states, or if Fidelis exists in any other states, but LOOK FOR THIS KIND OF THING when you sign up!! Explicitly CHECK TO MAKE SURE.
I am going to switch away from Fidelis not because I can’t stand to go to Planned Parenthood, but because I don’t want to support a company in any way that feels it can dictate my health choices because of its religious beliefs.
“Okay, honestly– okay fam, I wanted to thank you guys so much for like, supporting me today! I checked my hashtag and I honestly didnt expect so many.. support. Like, okay, lets be real. Im not the most liked one in the group (22/7). Im not very popular in the japanese fandom because im not like, you know, im not– you know small and not really petite.And Im not saying im cute either– Im not the visual! Of the group! Im not the Jimin in BTS– Like, I am some animal. literally like a sewer rat. Leaving that aside. I was just really happy cause like sometimes I get really discouraged looking at comments being like ‘oh, sally’s not very pretty I dont know why shes in the group if shes half english she shouldnt be in this group’ It kinda discourages me but I didnt think that I would get this much support from over seas fans and it honestly means the world to me.”
