In addition to the micro aggression from the lady on the tram and having to defend herself once again, this little moment of Sana refusing the pepperoni pizza and then picking if the beef from the other pizza is, I feel, gonna be a theme that builds up through the season. It’s one of those things that makes you feel different. Why didn’t the other girls know that Sana can’t eat pork and non-halal meat? Haven’t Sana bothered to tell them or have they forgotten? It’s not like it’s something new to Sana tho, she has lived here her entire life. I’m really excited for Sanas perspective. Really damn excited!
Yo I'm going to explain something about Korean age that most of you guys don't understand
Okay so you know how in Korean age you are a “year” older than what you are in the rest of the world? You actually turn a year older on New Year’s Day.
Say you were born in March 30th, you would be born “1 years old” in Korean age due to the time in the womb is considered a year (I think, not sure about that part please tell me if I’m wrong) but when January 1st comes around you turn 2 automatically. You still celebrate your birthday on March 30th though because that was the day you were born but you don’t “turn” a year older on your birthday.
But say you were born on December the 31st, you are still automatically 1 but this time since the next day is January 1st you are only technically 1 for a day and you are 2 the next day.
This isn’t like in most of the world since we celebrate people getting a year older on their actual birthday, and in other parts of Asia it’s slightly different because in some places it takes part on the lunar new year and not January 1st.
So just remember when you’re writing an idol/anyone for that matter’s Korean age they aren’t “turning 20” they already are 20, just because their birthday hasn’t come up yet doesn’t cancel out the fact that they are already a year older by Korean standards.
I understand if most of you don’t know this since I only found out recently too but please try to refrain from doing this in the future because it can be confusing.
It was quiet. So quiet. They didn’t need to look out to see that was late. Not a single noise. Even their breaths you couldn’t hear.
Remus was holding Sirius, so tight, like he was afraid, like he didn’t want the other to dissapear; like he could.
Sirius had his eyes closed, like if he opened the other would not exist anymore.
They were naked, to feel every single piece of skin they could, and even that wasn’t enough. Eskimo kisses. Lazy hands.
you.” Said Remus, his voice so low that if it wasn’t that quiet Sirius wouldn’t ever listen.
“I Love you
you turn everything into a competition?”
in silence for a few seconds. Sirius opened his eyes to see a confused Remus.
“When I say I love you more, I don’t mean I love you more that you love me. I mean I love you more than the bad days ahead us. I love you more that any fight we will ever have. I love you more than the distance between us. I love you more than any obstacle that could ever try and come between us. I love you the most.”
Remus tried not to cry, but he couldn’t. And then he kissed Sirius, like never before.
There is one more story I need to tell you.”
I waited. He didn’t continue.
I put my hand against his cheek, the first intimate touch we’d had all day. His skin was chilled, his eyes bleak as they slid to me. “I don’t walk away – not from you,” I swore quietly.
His gaze softened. “Feyre–

Realising Rhys was probably going to tell Feyre the story of their mating bond but then he got shot by those damn ash arrows, lol my heart hurts
ALRIGHT so here we go my hand has been forced and ill probably sound extra but I’m way past that at this point. These are some essentials you need to know about Max Pacioretty and why I think he’s one of the most underrated players.
1.) I just want to point out, right off the bat, that this beautiful man plays out his heart and fucking soul. Sometimes, he has his moments. Sometimes, he isn’t 100% and that’s okay, because he still plays with all that he is able to give. You know who ELSE has their moments? Every single player in the NHL. Including Carey Price and including Sidney Crosby idk just name any NHL star’s name and they have most DEFINITELY had their low moments.
Can we also remember that Max Pacioretty played with a broken ankle, and that he scored a goal and got two assists in a game while he was sick with the flu? So for all the people claiming he didn’t try his best throughout the 2016-17 season, please rethink this.
2.) A lot of people forget that Max Pacioretty was nearly paralyzed from the neck down. Y’all know who Travis Roy is? Long story short, Travis Roy was basically a hockey prodigy and got to play on varsity his freshman year at BU. However, he only got to play for eleven seconds before he went to check someone and fell head first into the boards and broke his C4 and C5 vertebrae. Travis Roy is fascinating and I actually had the pleasure of meeting him earlier this year, so if the spirit moves you, you should check out his story.
Why is that important? Well, because of that injury, Roy was paralyzed from the neck down.
You know what happened to Max Pacioretty? He received an illegal check that broke his C4. People who survive spinal cord injuries above this level need ventilators or machines to breathe. Yet here he is, six years later, and now the fucking captain. Idk about y'all, but that’s so amazing to me. Sometimes I wonder what health issues he still deals with today, but that’s a mystery.
I feel like surviving and recovering from an injury like that MIGHT leave a guy a bit traumatized? But that’s just me. I’ve never had someone nearly snap my neck so I can’t speak from experience. I certainly would be scared shitless to play the dangerous sport of hockey again.
3.) This gift to humanity scored his first NHL goal on his first NHL shot when he was brought up from the AHL. They sent him back down after that, but when he was brought up for a second time, he ended up being the highest goal scorer that season. When he returned from this injury? He had a 33 goal season and won the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.
I’m a bit petty and hold grudges, so I personally wouldn’t have forgiven him. This isn’t a hate post towards the guy, which is why I didn’t name him.
His teammates stick up for him no matter what, and that’s when you know you’re a good and respected captain. Your teammates want to defend you and value your reputation. Let’s not forget the time that rumor was passed around that Therrien claimed Max Pacioretty was the worst captain in Habs history, and Nathan Beaulieu came quick to his defense with:
So please don’t tell me that Max Pacioretty isn’t allowed to have his moments. Or that he single handedly let the Habs down this season. Or that he doesn’t deserve to be the captain.
Please stop using Max Pacioretty as a scapegoat for everything that goes wrong in the Montreal Canadiens season.
If anyone has more to add to this list, please do.
Could you write a fic where Ezekiel is in a really bad relationship and Jake is all worried but Ezekiel thinks he's overstepping his boundaries but then everything between him and his partner gets worse and Ezekiel is terrified and miserable and goes to Jake for help?
This got…long. But, I guess, that was to be expected with a topic this important. It also doesn’t help that I turned this into a Happily Ever Afters AU! (except Ezekiel’s not an FBI agent and Jake’s not a professor. The Library-Bar is still there though.) I really wanted to visit that universe and this prompt, being a bit more serious and domestic than the usual show, felt like the perfect excuse for it. I really hope you enjoy this!
Warning: This talks about serious topics such as domestic abuse/abusive relationships (mainly mental/emotional but physical is touched upon). I don’t claim to be an expert on these topics and tried to base it off the few personal experiences I’ve (and people I know have) had with abusive relationships (which, blessedly, isn’t much anyways). If this is something you cannot read then please do not. Please take care of yourselves and heed these warnings. And, also, I love you, whoever you may be. So, so much <3
I’m celebrating marriage equality by with some Beach City Pride. These are all my gender and sexuality headcanons for the show right now.
I got the flag colors off wikipedia so please tell me if I got anything wrong.
