Domestic Tuesday

Thank You For Loving Me

It was the crack of dawn when Zack woke up, carefully untangling himself from Jason, so he could grab his clothes and walk out of the room. They had been having an on and off affair for a while, but on the previous night the Red Ranger proposed going steady. That offer made him both happy and worried. He had never been on a relationship before, so he had no idea if he would be any good at it. Zack didn’t want to disappoint Jason. Those thoughts, along with the pros and cons of getting in a relationship with his best friend ate him up all night. At some point he considered calling his mother to ask for her opinion but he figured she would just call him an idiot and remind him of how long he has been in love with Jason for.  

Usually when he got up at that time it was to leave the house, so he wouldn’t delude himself with the idea that what they had was a lasting thing. This time, however, he wanted to do something for Jason, show his gratitude. Strolling into the kitchen, he put on the apron he saw hanging there and then proceeded to open all the cabinets in search of ingredients and ideas on what to make. In the end he went with the basic, fried eggs, bacon, natural orange juice, toast and pancakes.

Making breakfast for Jason took Zack the best part of an hour, but in the end he was proud of his work. He had the food aesthetically placed in a few plates, the juice in a jar and glasses for both of them. All placed on a tray. After making sure nothing was missing, he carefully made his way back upstairs.

Jason was still asleep when Zack entered the bedroom, so the Black Ranger set the tray down on the nightstand. He slowly opened the windows, allowing sunlight into the room and then slid back into the bed, snuggling against his best friend –boyfriend–, he was not sure yet which one of the two he could use. “Wakey, wakey, Boss Man!” He whispered gently, pressing a kiss to the shell of the Red Ranger’s ear. The response came almost immediately. “Just five more minutes, babe.” That word had Zack’s heart doing a somersault and he almost felt compelled to grant the blond’s wish, but then all the work he had with making him breakfast would go to waste. Standing up without a word, he walked to the nightstand and grabbed the tray. “I made you something, Red.” That seemed to do the trick, because Jason stretched his limbs and sat up, slowly opening his eyes. The sight before him made him smile broadly, making his cheeks hurt in the process. “Thank you, babe!” With the tray placed on the mattress, Jason pulled Zack into a small chaste kiss. “You’re already an awesome boyfriend.” At that Zack only smiled. He had the answer to his question now.

  • You: there is a gay white character in Beauty and the Beast for about THREE seconds! I'm glad they are representing the LGBT community :')
  • Me, an intellectual: 4/5 of the power rangers are POC and they're all of different nationalities, there is an autistic black character and a Latina lesbian character and a HOT Asian character who are actually leads and not just there for publicity and a false claim of diversity, the autistic character is loved and not once asked to go out of his comfort zone, they're all teenagers who love and protect each other and also save the world while being huge nerds,
How can y'all be saying season 9 is bad when it's given us so much already???

- Lady Gaga as a guest judge, who came into the werkroom as a drag queen version of herself
- Lady Gaga giving the queens a crash course in Untucked
- “nina bonina fell on the sofina”
- The first queen to Shangela since Shangela (Cynthia Lee Fontaine)
- “What is a bloomer? It sounds disgusting.”
- “Stoning is for ugly girls.”
- “i’m hungry and tired and thirsty and i’m, like, having anxiety right now”
-“what’s an adjective?”
- “Eureka can you shut up for a second?”
- “You’re beautiful you’re perfect you look like Linda Evangelista you’re a model”
- Aja’s lip sync to “Holding Out for a Hero”
- Sasha and Shea eating chocolate out of a “stalk of broccoli” together
- Sasha and Shea’s subsequent friendship as a result
- “I call shade”
- “NO YOURE DONE AND IMMA TELL YOU WHY YOURE DONE”
- Nina holding her titty while Eureka and Trinity argue
- The first queen to die on-screen since Tammie Brown (Charlie Hides)
- “someone for the first time in my life told me I wore too much highlighter”
- Alexis blaming the other queens for her own bad choices
- Farrah’s crying noises
- Cynthia’s eulogy to the chair
- The first queen to be honorably discharged (Eureka)
And there’s so much more of season 9 left for even more gems like these.

Reasons why you should see Power Rangers (NO SPOILERS)

1. VERY FIRST ON SCREEN AUTISTIC SUPERHERO

•  Said autism is not treated as a weakness and really makes said character the stand out of the movie

2.VERY FIRST ON SCREEN LGBTQ+ SUPERHERO

 • It’s not a topic that is dealt with throughout the whole movie. They talk about it for like two minutes 

• No one treats said character any differently after the reveal

3. THE WOMEN ARE NOT ONCE DOUBTED TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE THEMSELVES

• Not a single sexist comment throughout the entire movie. Not. One.

• (At least I don’t remember any. I may be wrong but I’m 99% sure I’m right)

4. EVERYONE IS FLAWED OR HAS A ‘disability’ 

5. ONE OF THE MESSAGES IS THAT DOING AN AWFUL THING DOESN’T MAKE YOU AN AWFUL PERSON

• I can tell you a lot of people need someone to tell them that

6. IT TACKLES A SHIT TON OF ISSUES AND I LOVE THE MOVIE FOR THAT

7. ALPHA FIVE ISN’T HELPLESS AT ALL

8. ZORDON ISN’T PERFECT AND KINDA SELFISH

9. THIS MOVIE WILL FUCK YOU UP WITHOUT A DOUBT

• I cried like three times

10. THE SOUNDTRACK IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

• Includes The Score, twenty one pilots, Fitz and The Tantrums, and Tove Lo

11. IT’S STILL POWER RANGERS JUST LESS CHEESY

12. IT’S PRETTY FUCKING FUNNY AT SOME PARTS

13. THEY DON’T GET ALONG AUTOMATICALLY 

• It takes a lot of the movie for them to be able to be open with one another

14. THERE IS CAMEO FROM THE ORIGINAL PINK AND GREEN RANGERS

(KK THAT’s ALL I CAN THINK OF RIGHT NOW SO PLS GO SEE IT)
