It’s normal and rational for you to be hurt over what the Supergirl cast did today. You are not strange or too invested if you cried or got a pit in your stomach or hated yourself as you watched that. You are not too old to cry over those kinds of things. You are not immature if you cry over those kinds of things.
This was bad. Your reaction is normal. Their reaction … is …. normalized in our society but that doesn’t mean they’re right and you are broken. What was revealed today was a level of casual lack of empathy that is very difficult to recover from.
Hey! 💓 Can I request a got7/bts reaction to when they fight with their s/o, raise their hand and their s/o flinches and they realize their s/o thought they’d hit them? (Idk if that makes sense, I hope you understand what I mean! I hope you have a lovely day <3)
Jin: *I can see Jin doing this because it one his reactions when the members do something bad and that reaction could extend to his girlfriend. In the end, I think it might freak himself out more than it’d freak her out.* I’m so sorry. I would never…just…wow
Suga: *while I imagine Suga is generally a realtively frustrated person, he always channels that into music and he makes a conscious effort to do so in order to effectively channel better things into relationships he cares about so why he might punch a wall or shout, he knows where the line is.*
J-Hope: *this sweetheart could barely hurt a fly like Youngjae so if he was getting frustrated in a fight, he’d take a moment to cool down before he didn’t any drastic.*
Rap Monster: *I feel like Namjoon would be the type to raise his voice or even ball his fists. In the end, I think he’s like Suga in that he’d channel the frustration into his music or something productive so he’d be able to rationally focus on a disagreement*
Jimin: *I feel like Jimin is more the type to internalize his emotions. If he was frustrated he’d just clench his teeth and fists before excusing himself to cool down, he wouldn’t want to get too emotional because I think he feels like a lot of that would show that he’s weak.*
V: *Because Taehyung seems like such a laid back guy, I struggle to see him getting worked up enough to raise his hand or fist. I almost picture his so doing that and him grabbing their hands and suggesting they take a break for the night.*
Jungkook: *I feel like Jungkook is like Jimin in that he would just internalize any frustration he had and would quickly excuse himself from any situation where he felt himself growing too frustrated to cool down and gain control of his emotions on his own.*
mark my words, mingyu’s gonna come back from laws of the jungle a damn earthbender. within the first day he will have already synced his mind with the earth, not long after connecting his soul as well. the ground will bend to his wishes, the trees creating intricate shelters on his behalf, and the producers will have to rewrite the plot of the show because there will no longer be any laws of the jungle, as mingyu is the sole law of the jungle.
that alone should be enough to send your imaginations spinning off to wild places, but that, my friends, is only where our story begins.
it is also something you should know, just in general, in case you happen to encounter darcy lewis.
she’s tazed a god twice, and she goes drinking with thor. on a regular basis.
the first time thor wanted to go drinking after i showed up, lewis was there too. and naturally, if thor was going out so was she. neither of them knew us newbie avengers well yet, but being sociable sort of people, they invited us to tag along. scott immediately agreed, but sam was caught up doing some beta testing in the labs with tony, and said he would catch up when they were done.
so darcy, thor, scott and i went out drinking.
fun fact about thor: it takes him approximately one million alcohols to get drunk, but once he’s there, he likes to sing. preferably epic ballads of victory in battle, but he’s pretty much game for any catchy song that will get a bar excited. that being the case, lewis and thor’s go-to midgardian bar is a karaoke joint.
im sure you begin to see where things are going wrong.
fun fact about darcy lewis? she can also hold her alcohol, but cannot carry at tune. like. at all.
that doesnt stop her from singing, mind you. gotta respect a lady who knows shes terrible but enjoys herself anyway.
scott apparently loves karaoke. i dont know why that surprised me, but it did. even more surprising? hes not actually that bad, although like 90% of his song choices were bruce springsteen. no clue why. anyway, thor was delighted by having a buddy who was not only willing but able to sing with him, and after scott got over his star-struck-ness they had a pretty great time.
it was a good thing that thor and lewis went to that bar on the regular, because im sure any place that hadnt been prepared for them would have kicked all of us out. as it was, they finally booted us out the door after a rousing rendition of ‘wrecking ball’ had most of the bar on their feet. and broke two tables.
(thor apparently settles his tab there in asgardian gold, so no hard feelings from the bartenders.)
the night was young and all of us had enough booze in our systems that we decided to catch a cab back to the tower and see if we could rope anyone else into some shennanigans. thor was buzzed at least, which for thor means his voice is even boomier and his gestures are more expansive–you gotta be ready to duck. scott was drunk, no question about it, and that was probably why theyd wound up singing wrecking ball in the first place. scott’s a cheerful if floppy, “ i love you, i love all of you guys, i love everyone in this bar ” kind of drunk, and was mostly travelling by merit of being wrapped around thors bicep. i was a little buzzed myself, and lewis had had nearly as much as i did. remarkably, she seemed to be chugging along pretty well, some weaving and slurring aside. the lady lives up to her god-tazing reputation.
anyway, we got out of the cab at the tower and started making our way to the doors. scott had partially detached from thors arm and needed extra support, so i was helping keep him from capsizing while lewis trailed a few steps behind the three of us, making color commentary of our three stooges act.
and then out of nowhere, she just…yelled.
all three of us whipped around as quickly as three drunk superpeople can, just in time to see darcy lewis dish out what looked to be a pretty dang textbook perfect roundhouse kick to the chest of some poor guy.
the guy went down. lewis went down too, because the kick had totally overbalanced her. thor and i dropped scott and ran over to help.
which was when sam sat up and said ‘that was a hell of a kick’
because apparently hed finished up his testing and gone out to catch up with us, made it partway down the block to call a cab, then saw us getting out of our taxi. he jogged back–not being particularly stealthy, but we were drunk–and put his hand on lewis’s shoulder to get her attention.
lewis, having pretty poor vision even sober, and worse vision when drunk and without her glasses, just saw some big male figure who’d popped up out of nowhere and grabbed her by the shoulder.
so naturally she kicked him in the chest.
she apologized profusely, but the rest of us thought it was pretty funny. and sam was impressed the next morning when he discovered that she’d left a visible footprint on his chest.
darcy insists she has no idea why she did it. or where she learned to kick like that.
the rest of us have just chalked it up to mysterious darcy lewis powers.
Guys imagine Angel Grove High School being so surprised that Kimberly Ann fucking Hart, ex-cheerleader is dating Trini.
Some reactions are bad (most likely from the people who write on Trini’s locker and Kim’s ex-friends and the few homophobic kids) but for the most part it’s just bewildered confusion. Sure, they’ve seen Kimberly in relationships before, but not like this. Also, they all expected Jason and Kim to get together. Hell, some kids even bet on it.
They’re just so confused seeing Kimberly actually looking happy, like in Biology Kim moves to the back to sit near Trini and their desks are always close and Kimberly’s constantly finding new ways to somehow be touching Trini. (Trini pretends to be annoyed but she smiles like an idiot when Kim grabs her hand underneath their desks.
Kim skipping class to hang out with Trini during her off period. Kim showing up to school one day in a yellow beanie and one of Trini’s yellow shirts and getting stares, but someone just mutters, “How the hell do both of them look good in yellow?”
Kim’s ex-boyfriends starting drama and poor Kim has to pull a fuming Trini off of them. Trini gets questions like, “Are you really dating Kimberly?” And it puts her in a pissy mood, (one, it’s none of their business and two, she’s not used to all the attention) but usually Kim just swoops in and starts showing Trini off. She whips out her phone and just goes, “Guys, look at her! Isn’t she adorable?” And before Trini can say anything Kim kisses her.
Trini’s locker no longer gets any mean notes, and Kim draws a saber-toothed tiger in the corner. (It stays there for the rest of the year) Trini also has pictures of her and Kim up in her locker because she’s just so smitten and is surprised to find that Kim has a picture of them in hers, too.
Kim’s teachers worry for a while because her grades start slipping and they low-key think it’s Trini’s fault (her english teacher walks past them one day in the library during lunch and Trini’s trying desperately to get Kim to focus) “Kimberly Ann Hart I swear if you don’t finish this paper I won’t kiss you for a week.”
“Did you just full name me?”
“There’s no way you could go a week without kissing me.”
“Kim! Just do the damn paper!”
“You’re just mad because I’m right.”
Kim’s teacher has to hide his laugh behind his cup of coffee, and both girls get flustered as they realize that he and the librarian heard their entire conversation.
Kim posts a picture of her and Trini on her instagram (with the caption ‘pink lemonade’) and almost the entire school likes it and that same week Trini asks Kimberly to prom in this big dramatic fashion. (Kim and Trini only show up to prom for five minutes to take photos and they go back to Kim’s house and eat pizza while watching movies all night)
The boys always getting the biggest smile when they see Kim and Trini being happy together in the halls.
