the first and the last anyone

Mor & Az

I know that a lot of people don’t ship these two or even see them as a ship (or didn’t when they first read ACOMAF) and I just… didn’t understand at first? But I think I’m starting to get it.

Mor & Az are not a typical “love at first sight, let’s get over some challenges and have tons of sex and then be together 5ever” kind of couple. They are much more subtle than that, but because of this, they are also much more realistic.

Mor & Az are glances at each other to make sure the other is ok. They are putting each other first, before anyone else. They are deep, steady devotion that lasts over time.

They have the potential for grand gestures (e.g. him saving her from the Autumn Court), but that is not required for them to love each other, or to show each other that they are in love.

They are not public - they are private. They don’t need to show everyone around them how they feel. It’s already apparent in the way they treat each other, look at each other. They don’t need to prove it to anyone else.

They are subtle gestures and daily acts of kindness that add up to a lifetime (or lifetimes, as it were) of caring, which is much more important than a flash in the pan of heat and sex marathons.

This is what a sustained, long-term relationship looks like. This is also why I said that I wouldn’t mind them having children at the end of ACOWAR. They are already familiar and comfortable and still devoted, after all these years.

Whether or not they have consummated their relationship or not is sort-of… beside the point. Because that is only one aspect, and (as Feyre found out with Tamlin), that can’t be the only thing holding a couple together. There is a lot more to relationships than sex, and that’s exactly what Mor & Az have, is all those other parts - a strong, devoted, loving relationship.

And (assuming nothing has happened between them before, which I sorta doubt) neither of them would let the other suffer from fruitless hope for a romantic relationship, given how much they care for each other. Mor wouldn’t let Az suffer if she didn’t reciprocate his feelings, and vice versa. So don’t come around here saying they are just very good friends bc he obviously loves her, and if there was no hope then she would have told him so. Because they hate seeing each other suffer.

BUT… I do think that there is a very good chance they have something going on, or have in the past. But that’s maybe another post.

Prompt idea. Where Betty says Jughead's real name. Using his first, middle, and last name just to annoy him. And Jughead doesn't mind because he likes the way it sounds coming from Betty's mouth.

****
He just stared at her, wide eyed and horrified.

Betty Cooper had just done the unthinkable.

She had called jughead jones…

Forsythe.

He couldn’t remember the last time he had heard his real name coming from anyone’s mouth.

Yeah that’s right, his real name.

You didn’t really think his mother would name him jughead did you?

Not that he was justifying her naming him

Forsythe Pendleton… the third

He’d much prefer jughead.

But none the less Betty was standing there hand on her hip with the most evil grin he had ever seen.

“I said, did you finish editing the Pep rally article yet forsythe?”

Jughead looked at her article lazily clutched in his hand.

“Why, why do you insist on torturing me Betty?”

She giggled retrieving the article from him

“I happen to like your given name juggie, it’s fun.”

Shaking his head he went back to his laptop hoping this was the last time he heard that damn name come out of her mouth.

Wishful thinking.

The next day when he and the gang were shacked up working on homework in a booth at pops, Betty got up stretching her long tan legs.

“I’m getting a shake, I deserve it” she giggled
“Anyone else want anything?”
Ronnie handed her a five and begged for some onion rings while Archie said he’d just share ronnies and Kevin said he was watching his figure.

Then she went and said it

“Forsythe anything for you?”

All three heads snapped up and zeroed in on him waiting for him to bite bettys head off.

Sighing he couldn’t help the small smile.

“Nah bets, contrary to popular belief the four hamburgers I just ate filled me up….for now”

She laughed skipping over to the counter.

He looked at the group who was still staring at him slack jawed.

“Only Betty.” He ordered before turning back to his calculus book.

Four weeks later when he finally got up the courage to tell her how he really felt about her, and she went and wrapped herself around him connecting their lips and whispering.

“Oh forsythe Pendleton jones.”

He thought just maybe he could get used to his real name.

Truths

• I didn’t expect to get upset yesterday at the funeral. Her and I weren’t that close and besides taking the kids up there a handful of times over the last year, I haven’t seen her in 4 or 5 years. She was always actually really mean to me, but I got upset seeing her in the casket. Then once the kids got upset and we left, I cried too.
• Labor Day is on tv. It was the first movie I saw when I went to the show alone. I mentioned it in a tumblr post before tumblr ex and I were a thing. It was something he remembered and pointed out a long time after. I was shocked anyone would care to remember something so not important about me.
• Last week after not hearing from him for however long, Manny sent me a really confusing text. I showed B and the wifey and they were both like WTF. I finally told him exactly what I thought about him and that whole situation that was already done with. Before I blocked him on everything, I told him not to just show up at my house to talk because he does that sometimes.
• It’s been a nice 10 days while my parents were gone, today I pick them up from the airport.
• That tinder guy I was talking to, well I’m not. I told him I was super busy yesterday and not sure when I’d be able to text. He sent me 10 texts and then said “at least you could check in with me”. Then he called me. Dude, we were only texting 2 or 3 days. Chill. Bye.

Hey Sean,

The first time I ever saw one of your videos was way back when you had 2 million subscribers. It’s crazy to see how much the community has grown in such a short span of time. I’ve never interacted with anyone in the community until last year in October ( it’s a win in my book if I can make you laugh at my silly video clip :3) and I’ve never felt more accepted anywhere in my life. It was like a breath of fresh air.

You’ve helped push me to be the person I am today; because of this, I started a channel of my own and have successfully been building a community of love and acceptance. A safe haven for all.

@pastelmoon101 and I didn’t know how much of the community was going to jump on board with this little idea - but everyone has banned together to give back to you the endless care you have given us each day. This community is something special…everyone is so quick to support each other and preach the same love you do for us, even in the midst of everything that has happened. It’s truly inspirational.

Thank you for everything you’ve done. We all love you! <3

My perspective on the last episode

First of all, I think the last episode has shown us very clearly that Carol and Daryl are officially each other’s person. If anyone had doubts about this before, this shouldn’t be the case anymore after watching this episode. They both love each other very deeply and every little scene we got just proved it repeatedly. No, it’s true that their scenes didn’t last very long and no, they didn’t go canon but…it was still something important that needed to happen for them to move forward together. We must remember that Carol is currently isolating herself from the people she considers family. She does it because she can’t afford to lose herself if she keeps killing and seeing other people die. 

She is very vulnerable right now and Daryl understands that. That’s why he doesn’t push her to come back with him and he doesn’t mention Glenn and Abraham to her. He is very careful around her because he knows that she is not in the best place mentally to deal with any of this. So, he protected her by lying and then left so she could continue her healing process alone. And this is a very selfless act from Daryl because he loves this woman with all his heart and he probably doesn’t want to distance himself from her like that. But he must leave her alone because he knows deep inside that this is what she needs to finally move on. Daryl did exactly what he needed to do for her own safety and this is the only thing that really matters down the line.

And because of Daryl’s visit and Morgan’s future reveal about Glenn and Abraham, something will switch in Carol’s mind later this season. She will realize that she can’t keep running away like that. She will realize that people will keep dying with or without her around, so she might as well try and fight hard to protect what is left from her family. This will lead Carol to reunite with her people and start over again, finally. And then, only then, she will be in a better place to reconnect with herself and her needs for love, friendship and everything else. That’s when Daryl will come into play once more and they will start working on their relationship together, leading us eventually to canon status. This might take some time to happen but at least, the cards are already displayed on the table and they just need to be played now. We know without a shadow of a doubt that they love each other, it’s just not the right time for them to get together yet. Patience is key and we will be here to celebrate when that time comes.

anonymous asked:

@that last anon yes!!! all of this! i'm so annoyed that they don't let malec ACT like a couple anymore while they are actually endgame(unlike cl*mon) why would anyone think that that's an okay thing to do? were they high?

Honestly, Anon? Exactly that is the question I’ve been asking myself ever since 2x07 aired. I just…. I simply don’t understand it.

Their whole behavior is somehow so off? I dunno how else to describe it. But when you just look at it, they went on their first date, had their second kiss, apprently went around the world for their second(?) date, weren’t allowed to have some intimacy, had sex which we only knew through talks between Jace and maybe Izzy (and twitter, wtf?!), now they are throwing a party, again, no intimacy or some acting like “yes we are together indeed”, inbetween a suicide attempt and this happened in like…. what? 3 days?

How can nobody notice how wrong this all is???

Now that comps are over and my first proposal draft is in, I’ve got a bit more writing time than I have over the last … ever. And over the last couple of days I finally (finally!) have another chapter of the Dale Cycle done. (That’s my Young Avengers / Fourth Crusade AU of pain, for those newly playing along at home.) 

It’s been so long since I’ve put up a section - I think The Old Duke went up in the early fall, and then it was something like a year before that… 

Why does anyone read my stuff, anyway? I’m such a slacker. The gaps on this series are ridiculous.

Anyway, the rough draft went up on patreon this morning, and I’m going to polish it up and post a nicer version later. AO3 probably in the first two weeks of March. If anyone wants an earlier peek and has been following the series, I’d love to have a beta take a skim through it and make sure I haven’t gone entirely off the rails.

30-Day SWTOR OC Challenge -- Day 19

Day 19: Courtship & Friendship

Does your OC get involved romantically or sexually with anybody? When do they first fall for them or get involved? If they fall in love, when does it happen? Does the relationship last?

Friendships (for the aromantic and otherwise): Do they have a serious platonic relationship with anyone? How does it begin? Does it last?

Yuned'rar had met @calleo‘s Yxaxajj when he was 17 or so and they slowly became friends. Yuned'rar very much liked and appreciated that Yxaxajj gave him space, didn’t push him to do anything, and respected him – all things that he didn’t have at the time and when he was especially distrustful of people. They were very good and close friends for a couple of years like that.

Somewhere when he was 19, Yuned'rar realised he had developed Other Feelings for Yxaxajj, who was dating someone at the time. When he figured out it was an open relationship, he confessed his love to absolutely no-one’s surprise at all because he was the most obvious baby (no really):

For a short time it was a relationship between Yuned'rar, Yxaxajj, and two others. It became a bit strained and two left, but Yun and Xajj stuck it out.

Once things calmed down and they began spending more time on Tatooine and eventually moving there, Yxaxajj’s long-time friend @rashkah‘s Rasejj came into the picture, reuniting first with Yxaxajj and then growing closer with Yuned'rar, too.

So, now they’re a sweet, loving trio.

anonymous asked:

I recently turned 30 and I have a fear nobody will ever want to be romantically involved with me again. My last relationship ended 4 years ago and it was with an asexual who found anything sexual disgusting. I had my first time with them but it was terrible and very unsatisfying, I wasn't even allowed to see them naked. I'm bisexual and the first and only guy I've kissed said I'm just too weird. Why would anyone want to get involved with me when I'm fat and apparently too weird?

There are plenty of people who find fat and weird to be good things. But all good things in life are small diamonds scattered across a garbage dump.
We need to scavenge through the garbage and learn how to filter and dispose of the useless bad stuff to find those diamonds.
Sometimes the diamond we find is someone else. Sometimes it is a new part of ourselves.
Whatever the case is for you: keep looking, search in friendlier places, and filter the garbage. I’m sure you will find what you are looking for eventually. Because you are beautiful and valid.

(*Okay, so as of tonight, I’ve made a new blog to switch all this over to. It’s bare and unfinished and untouched, but it’s the very much needed first step into archiving over here.

I will still be tracking illusoirereveur over on my new blog. And I will continue to track it for quite some time, especially since there’s still a high likelihood that I may, in the future, switch my url back to that.

Anyway, below is the list of everything I have in my drafts. If you are not on this list, and we have a thread that you would like to continue, message me and let me know. I said it in my last post, and I’ll repeat it now. Anyone who does not tell me they want to continue our thread(s) can expect to have it dropped. Part of the reason I’m switching over to a new blog is because I have way too much going on here, and I need a fresh start. So, see below, and again, if you aren’t listed here, please please please do not hesitate to message me and tell me you want our thread to continue.*)

The Last Of Us Part II Panel

For anyone who can’t or doesn’t want to watch the panel, here’s the stuff they talk about:

  • Neil says the theme of the game is hate
  • We’re playing as Ellie in the game
  • Ashley says she missed playing Ellie but didn’t realize just how much until they started shooting the trailer
  • Troy and Ashley say they’ve had to lie so much the past two years
  • Ellie is 19 now
  • Neil says that he knows people are worried about this spoiling the first game and all that and says they all feel the same but that nobody loves the characters more than they do and that they wouldn’t do it unless they felt the idea was right
  • Neil says he played with the idea of new characters but it never felt right because TLOU is about Joel and Ellie
  • Asks fans to put their trust in them because “we’re gonna do right by you”
  • Troy says Joel is the character he misses the most and finds himself thinking about the most. He also talks about how he almost didn’t audition for Joel.
  • Neil sent Ashley the trailer scene two years ago and the actual trailer was shot a year and a half ago
  • They’re gonna hold off on giving a release date until they’re certain about it
  • Gustavo Santaolalla is returning!!
  • Neil says that Joel and Ellie are the heart of TLOU and he can’t see it without them
  • Lance: Hey Keith, my boyfriend's better than yours!!!
  • Keith holding Lance's face, foreheads touching, looking into his eyes: You are the light of my life, the most beautiful boy I have every laid eyes on and everyday I wonder what in the universe I did to deserve someone as perfect as you. I love you, with all my heart and soul and would cross over galaxies to find you if you were ever in trouble, which is why if I have to hear you say anything deprecating about yourself again I will need you to write down the first and last names of anyone that has ever said anything bad about you and destroy them.

For the Hundredth Time...

We are in a dank cave with water flowing from somewhere. Our Cleric is fighting the last enemy.
Dwarf Cleric: I throw my shield, Captain America style.
Me GM: Ok.
(rolls nat 1)
Me: You throw your shield into the river.
Dwarf: What river?
Me: That one. (Points to map)
Dwarf: Shit.

Later…
He bought another shield.
First enemies.
Dwarf: I throw my shield at a random guy.
Me: Anyone?
Dwarf: Yeah.
Me: (Rolls to determine target.)(Target is himself. Rolls nat 20. To shake things up, I roll on the something happens table. “An old enemy returns…” is what I got.
Me: Holy shit. So…you throw your shield, it curves round, and conks you on the skull. (Rolls max damage possible)
Dwarf: At least I still have my shield.
Me: A river comes crashing down the mountain, and sweeps away your shield. As it fades away, you can see your other shield in the river.
Dwarf: I fight the river.
Me: (rolls nat 1)
Me: The river forms a water elemental, and the water elemental takes both of your shields…
Me: (rolls two nat 20s)
Me: WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK! THIS ELEMENTAL SLAPS YOU AROUND WITH BOTH OF YOUR SHIELDS UNTIL YOU ARE UNCONSCIOUS, AND THEN LEAVES.
Bard: I loot him
