the converse

I'm so pumped/angsty in the best possible way that so many of my favorite blogs are reblogging that gifset of the radio show moment because the video lasts less than 10 seconds I believe? And its a video I always go back to on youtube because of the fast yet prominent moment of catching someone off guard with his feelings exposed for just a second. Just a moment before he goes back to camera mode and its beautiful to look at

phil just swaying and then dan looking over at him while that song is playing and you know they can hear the lyrics and phil meeting dan’s eyes and for a beat or two just staring back and then phil looking forward and pulling that face and dan looking around like he’s just not sure what he’s supposed to do and then phil sways in a more exaggerated way that bumps their bodies together and it feels like such a Moment where phil knows dan was making some kind of gesture and he knows he tried to play the gesture off but he also really wants to make some kind of gesture back and he can’t do it with words and he can’t even do it with a look since dan just did that so he does it with touch and it leaves the whole thing just feeling like there was a beginning and there will be an after but all we’re witness to is this moment that translates to a long sigh in the middle of a sentence of a conversation we’re not privy to 

i’m sorry if you didn’t want fanfic you shouldn’t have sent the ask 

Hey I get that compulsive heterosexuality is a thing and all but can we maybe stop trying to convince bi girls that they aren’t actually attracted to guys….I mean can we get rid of the idea that a bi girl who lusts after men is somehow doing a great disservice to the wlw community or being disloyal to who she “really” is…compulsive heterosexuality is real but guess what bisexuality is too and it’s a very valid identity

they’re hanging out n keeping warm while their armour plates get fixed up

(what they don’t know is their armour was fixed hours ago, they just kept talking and lost track of time :3c)

so that half hour boot huh

Thanksgiving: How to Deal With Difficult People

Visiting family for Thanksgiving can be challenging. Your dinner companions may say hurtful, offensive things about race, gender identity, sexual harassment and assault, birth control coverage, abortion, or any number of topics — which can feel stressful, isolating, or enraging.

So this Thanksgiving, we’re giving you some tips on how to deal with your family when things get hard:

  1. Self care: Make decisions about what to do around Thanksgiving so you feel safe, whether that means not going home at all, going home with a friend or partner by your side, or only visiting for dinner.
  2. Build allyship with family members who love and respect you: The more people in your family who can call people out (or even better, call people in) on their problematic behavior, the less acceptable it will be.
  3. Engage people in conversation: If you feel safe doing so, start with a mutual value (like freedom, respect, or love). For example, if someone says they don’t think businesses should have to cover birth control, ask why from a place of curiosity. Maybe they think business owners are people who should be free to make decisions based on their religion. You can agree that people should be free to make decisions based on their beliefs — whether you’re a CEO or an employee, you should have the ability to make your own personal health care decisions. So you explain (calmly) how that mutual value informs your stance. Practice asking questions, finding a value in their sentiment you can agree on, and starting from there. This is hard work, but you only get better at it if you keep trying.
  4. Take a stand: It’s totally ok to tell someone that their language or behavior is hurtful and unacceptable to you. Tell them about the impact it has on you and why, and what the consequences of their actions are to the larger community. Tell them you expect better, and what the consequences are if they don’t change (like cutting off contact with them or leaving). And you’re allowed to end the conversation, leave the room, and set whatever boundaries you need to feel safe.

There are lots of great resources out there to help guide you in tough conversations, here are a few to get you started:

  • Sirius: Thanks, mom.
  • McGonagall: ...
  • Sirius: Why is everyone staring at me?
  • Remus: You just called Professor McGonagall mom; you said: "Thanks, mom."
  • Sirius: What? No, I didn't. I said thanks, Professor.
  • McGonagall: Do you see me as a mother figure, Mr. Black?
  • Sirius: No, if anything, I see you as a bother figure because you're always bothering me.
  • James: Hey, show your mother some respect.
Hai contato centomila passi per arrivare da nessuna parte.
Pensavi che i numeri fossero importanti ma l'unica cosa che conta è non sapere dove stai andando.
A volte vuoi sentirti parte di qualcosa, parte di qualcuno.
Altre volte ti piace stare solo,sentirti di troppo.
D'altronde il mondo è una scarpa gigante ma col numero sbagliato.
Potresti girare su te stesso solo per sentire il gusto della nausea, fino a vomitare in faccia le realtà e ammettere che sei un sognatore e non riesci a stare fermo.
Dicono che le cose belle durano poco, e come dargli torto, se un arcobaleno durasse più di un quarto d'ora chi cazzo lo guarderebbe più?
Tu credi sia comodo illudersi e pensare che le cose non cambieranno mai, ma ad ogni stagione la pelle si stacca e l'unica cosa che puoi fare è continuare a strisciare. 
Noi detestiamo essere abitudinari, perché le abitudini partono lentamente, e molto prima che tu realizzi d'avere un'abitudine è l'abitudine che ti possiede.
—  Salmo.
