the hug to end all hugs

The group hug at the end of 5x06 was so much more powerful than Ruby hugging Weiss ever could have been. Weiss standing there all alone and crying while she lets the sisters have their moment together is incredibly heartbreaking, especially if you remember that Weiss doesn’t have any family left apart from Winter and Klein who are both in Atlas right now. 

Of course Ruby would hug Yang first. But then they notice Weiss. They see her and Ruby calls her name to pull her out of her lonelyness. And Ruby does not only go and hug Weiss, she and Yang open up their very peronal and private family moment for her. They don’t just include her into this hug, they also include her into this family. It’s such a strong symbolic moment and it acknowledges her and their bond more than any individual hug ever could. And Weiss is so so happy when they do it.

Ok so I was having a pretty bum day recently and I was venting about it a bit to a close friend of mine who's a guy. He listens and does all the "that sucks :( I'm sorry" stuff that you're supposed to do when someone's having a bad day but then at the ends he goes "that's really shitty I'm sorry :( I'd give you a hug, but we're not dating and I don't wanna make things weird" and I'm like ??? What??? You can't hug me because we're not dating? (1/?)

And I know it’s not to avoid making anyone jealous because we’re both single and he goes “yeah you know I’d hug you but you know we’re not dating so I can’t” and I’m like wtf you don’t need to be in a relationship with someone to hug them who told you that? he says that he hasn’t hugged anyone since he was about 11 and I jokingly ask like not even your mom? Because I mean she’s your mom you see her every day and he says

((Oops I hit enter too fast)) and he says no not even his mom and he asks when the last time Ive hugged someone and Im short circuiting because the last time I hugged someone was like a couple hours ago not not since I was 11 like some MANIACS?? And now I’m kinda just sitting here like ?? Do some people/some guys really think youre not supposed to hug people unless youre dating them? Really? Why? Hugging is the best thing ever? Sorry for the rant and screwed up formatting Im just like wtf? (3/3)

that is so fucking weird dude i think i’ve hugged my mom at least 5 times today????????

Sometimes you just need to hug it out

TBH if someone was making me live in some strange isolated place for an indefinite period of time…gotta take the essentials.

So this is a totally useless rant, but as a skinny girl, I’m getting extra, extra tired of fat-shaming.

I work for a corsetier at a Renaissance Faire. We sell corsets. Not flimsy bullshit costume corsets; like real, durable, waist-training corsets. Today a woman came in with her boyfriend, so I helped her pick out a corset and try it on. While her boyfriend—who was decidedly enthused about the whole corset thing—sat watching me lace her in, he told me, grinning, “Of all the good jobs at the Renaissance Faire, I think you have the best.”

I shrugged in agreement. “I touch butts and reach down cleavage all day; I mean…” Because we like to be a bit rakish at the Faire, and, y’know, it’s true. Tying people into corsets pretty much invariably requires getting handsy.

The couple laughed at that, and the boyfriend said, “That’s the job I would want!” But then he chuckled again and said, offhand, “Or maybe not; while we were looking at the racks, there were some pretty big sizes on there!”

Our sizes are all done in inches, and the biggest we make is a 46. And you’d better believe our large sizes sell. For a second I wasn’t sure what to say to the guy’s comment, but I answered him casually. “We get a lot of beautiful big ladies in here.” Because we do. “We make corsets for real women, not Barbie dolls,” I added. Wasn’t trying to be smart, just kind of tossed it out there because that’s the line we like to use when people ask about larger sizes, and because, again, we do.

The boyfriend went quiet at that; I didn’t think anything of it, I just kept on lacing. A moment later, he said, a little awkwardly (but sincerely enough), “Didn’t mean to be offensive.”

I quickly smiled and brushed it off, said he wasn’t, said I was just saying. (Don’t want to make the customers uncomfortable, you know?) And that was the end of it. His comment had rubbed me the wrong way, but it wasn’t a big deal. Now, I wear a 20-inch corset. I’m a few cup sizes short of being one of the Barbie dolls. Like his girlfriend, I’m one of the “hot chicks”; he doesn’t have to worry about offending me by implying that I wouldn’t be fun to poke and pull at.

Honestly though, of all the people I fit sexy technically-undergarments to in a day, fat girls are maybe my favorite people to lace up. Because they are just so damn happy that we have stuff that fits them. They are so damn happy that the corsets we make in their sizes are all the same pretty, shiny colors and cool flower/dragon/skull/etc. prints that the smaller corsets are, not ugly beige and boring “granny” colors. They are so goddamn happy that at least one (of several on the grounds) corset shop carries things that they can wear, that they actually want to wear, and that they look fucking awesome in. This is only my second season working, and we’ve fit 60+ inch waists and double-K busts. The only people we’ve ever had to tell sorry, we don’t have anything that fits them, are twelve-year-old kids.

It’s half-wonderful, half-heartbreaking how excited those women get. Women who say with sad smiles, when we ask if they want to get fitted, “Oh, no, you don’t have anything that fits me,” and then are stunned when we’re 300% confident that yes we do, and we have options. Women who can’t stop smiling and looking at themselves in the mirror after we’ve got them laced in.

I had a lady last week whose waist I measured (cinching the tape tight, as per procedure) at 41 inches—honestly not all that big. So she picked out a 41-inch corset to try on. I could tell halfway through getting her laced that it was going to be a bit big for her, so I mentioned it and said she might do better to try a smaller size. She started crying on the spot. She was so overwhelmed; she couldn’t believe someone had just told her that a 41 was too big. She told me about how hard clothes shopping was for her, how her mother would tell her she needed an XXXL instead of an XXL, how she had recently lost weight but still couldn’t wear certain colors because they didn’t fit or she wasn’t confident enough.

She did end up getting her corset, and after I checked her out she asked if she could give me a hug, so we ended up standing there hugging each other for a minute. While we did, I told her, “Do not ever let anyone tell you any bullshit. You are gorgeous.” She said, “I have a new boyfriend and he keeps telling me that.” I told her he was right, and to just keep telling herself she’s gorgeous; it was okay if she didn’t always believe it, but to keep telling herself anyway. (That’s how I talked myself through shit when I had bad anxiety.)

We all know fat-shaming is bad. The stupidity, fatphobia, and misogyny of it has pissed me off since I first became aware of it. But working with clothing, especially as figure-hugging and precise as corsets, has given me a new perspective on it—how much it affects people and just how shitty it is. Like, what does it say that I had a grown, only average-big woman crying into my shoulder because she was so overjoyed not to be the uppermost extremity of what a manufacturer can clothe?

My job rocks and it’s really rewarding, but sometimes it highlights some of the ugliest shit about society. I’m so glad I work at a shop that’s not bullshit about body types and operates with more people in mind than just scrawny white chicks like me. The fat women I work with are a ton of fun to lace up, and they’re so much more than their size—they’re cool, they’re smart, they’re funny, they’re sweet, they’re great to talk to, and yes, they’re hot. I’m so damn done with them getting short-changed and shamed by petty fucks who refuse to make them nice clothes, who refuse to even try to work for them, who refuse to consider them pretty. This whole rant was useless and won’t get read, but I had to vent because it’s been driving me nuts.

So actually, screw you, random dude. Fat girls are the highlight of my job.

things from deh 11/19
  • the lights hadnt even gone up on ben yet on the bed and people were already applauding like it was the end of the world. the applause just..kept going. and ben had this choked up look on his face and he was trying not to cry
  • the same for rachel bay jones just. raucous applause. 
  • and also? when the murphy family breakfast rolls on people lost it and they had to wait like 85 minutes before going back into the song
  • ben forgetting his lines in the middle of sincerely, me and just kind of standing there with a little grin on his face as will was just staring at him like omg
  • during ywbf ben walked toward the front of the stage as usual, you know, but he was looking UP at the screens and all around like he’d never seen it before in his life and he wanted to memorize it all. he had his head entirely craned back just looking UP 
  • after smthng jared says about the Gay Emails ben sat there and did his normal little head shake but ppl laughed so much, and he did it again and people laughed, and he just kept doing it an incredible amount of time just. shaking his head and everyone loved it
  • he wiped his hand ENTIRELY down to his foot when he meets zoe for the first time. like not just a dramatic little shirt wipe. he lifted up his leg and wiped it the ENTIRE length to his off-brand shoes
  • after zoe was like “im not breaking up w you” ben was facing out toward the audience and did this little hand moment like Oh but again. we all laughed. and he kept doing it for like 5 hours
  • also his FREAK OUT when he thinks zoe is breaking up w him was SO DRAMATIC he did lunges and shit i have never seen a human body move in that way before
  • mike really pummeled him in sincerely, me during their little Buddy Buddy part. and BEN !!!!!!!!!!!! FUCKIN RAN HIS HAND THROUGH MIKES HAIR INSTEAD OF DOING HIS NORMAL TINY POKES
  • sincerely, me was basically a rock concert ppl next to be started to clap along it was wild

  • there was a half standing ovation after words fail. a good portion of the mezzanine stood and i couldnt see the orchestra. man, you could see him concentrating all his energy just NAILING every single not and i think he was legitimately sobbing when he told the murphys the truth. he had to take some breaths. i mean, sobbing more than usual. i was worried for a second
  • so big, so small was impossible to watch bc it was the most truthful beautiful quiet thing ive ever seen. the looks they gave to each other. the words they said without speaking abt how much they love each other. i cannot express the power of the beat that evan and heidi spent looking into each others eyes doing nothing but being together. they took their time on this song and it hurt so bad 
  • the finale was ridiculous it was just everyone weeping weeping weeping. laura dreyfuss was WEEPING her face was red with tears but she somehow held it together to talk to ben and say “i wanted you to see this” but even from the MEZZANINE i could see the sparkle of tears in her eyes and i was like laura please if you start crying, im really gonna lose my composure and fuckin shriek or something
  • when everyone came out to sing for forever at the finale and theyre all looking at him ben just looked at them for a good long minute and theyre all smiling at him, and the look on rachel bay jones’ face is ethereal, and hes in the spotlight, and he steps forward to sing his final lines and he closes his eyes and just feels it 
  • and then its done
  • laura gives him a huge bouquet of flowers and he keeps motioning for the rest of the cast to come on and bow with him again and again bc the theatre just wont shut up and he has to keep coming back and bowing 
  • and then its really done
one more thing about airport scene

Apart from the general awesomeness of this scene, there is one thing that makes it 200% better for me is the fact how different is this reunion from any other we’ve seen in the anime.

So here we have both Victor and Yuuri running desperately to each other when they haven’t seen each other 2-3 days and all they can think of is how much they need to hug and it almost ends with engagement that’s how desperate they are so yes.

But then let’s compare this with reunions we see in the first episode. You know that time when Yuuri came back home after like… five years?

Hiroko is obviously very excited but there’s no kissing, no hugging, nothing. I always wondered how much of Yuuri’s reluctance to touch comes from his childhood because Katsuki family seems to show their love in completely other ways. 

And it’s not a bad thing, of course, everybody’s happy that Yuuri’s home it’s just completely different from the airport reunion scene. Also, one more thing about that - here Yuuri comes back as a loser. It’s only he with his anxiety to think so but he feels that he disappointed his hometown as a skater and his parents as a son for not coming back so long and it adds to his sense of unease.

We don’t know too much about Victor (because we know nothing about his family why) but when he meets the person he is the closest to before Yuuri, Yakov, after about 7-8 months, he acts as they haven’t seen each other couple of hours and is obviously ignoring the fact that Yakov is still angry with him (he gets drunk shortly after but that’s another story).

Anyway, it’s nothing like the airport reunion. And I love it because it means that at this stage of their relationship they are already closer to each other than they were ever to anyone. Even the fact that Yuuri has done bad at his FS doesn’t make him nervous or guilty because he already knows that Victor will accept him no matter what. And Victor, Victor is a complete mess without Yuuri I mean he hasn’t even combed his hair?

Just look at them so in love with each other they can’t stand a day apart. They not only miss each other, they act like they’d feel incomplete without each other. And that’s even if they should be used to travelling and living alone.

Real soulmates, I’ll give Kubo-sensei that.

“Please forgive us.”


The ones Obi-Wan Kenobi loved most.

He deserved better. *gross sobbing*

The 12.22 Family Hug

At the end of 12x22, we had that beautiful moment where the Winchester family was reunited and had forgiven one another their transgressions. They all go in for a massive family hug, and it’s fucking beautiful. But…something was off. Take a look at these faces during the hug.

One of these faces is not like the others. Can you pick out which one?

When I first saw this moment, my gut reaction was “Aww, Dean, after everything you just went through, your family is together! Why aren’t you smiling and happy like Sam and Mary?!”

Then my brain came to a screeching halt, because I knew the answer and I was shocked it hadn’t immediately occurred to me.

We’re still missing a Winchester, one who is very important to Dean. 

In fact he mentioned earlier in the episode that, like Mary, he had just found this person who is now lost.

He got Mary back, but it’s not enough to bring him that joy that Sam and Mary seem to have here. 

He is still pining. He still needs Cas. And his expression in that moment tells us both of these things very loudly and very clearly.

R.I.P. Keith
  • Lance: Hey mullet, what's up?
  • Keith: um... *looks up* the ceiling.
  • Lance: *laughs softly* Yep, I know that.
  • Keith: Well, why did you ask? Are you trying to confuse me or something!?
  • Lance: What? Keith chill! I meant what's going on! What's up is the same as What do you need or how are you!
  • Keith: Oh...Um, I'm sad and have major trust issues and at the moment I can only really talk to you because Allura still secretly hates me, I don't really know Hunk, Pidge, or Coran too well, and I don't feel safe around Shiro. How are you?
  • Lance: *hugs fiercely*

I created the ayakashi and taught them words. I wanted to talk to them.

Okay but for the final season I want it to be parallel to the first season like:
  • Like Pidge is messing with her tech or something and Hunk instead of him poking at her equipment he actually asks for permission
  • Lance and Hunk do some sneaking just like the one from the first episode at the garrison
  • They think Keith is dead from an explosion or something. At some point Lance starts laughing
    • “It’s Keith I see him!!”
    • “wait are you sure buddy?!?!”
    • “Yea i’d recognize that mullet anywhere”
  • Allura does some badass magic shit and she gets drained and falls into lance’s arms. Allura forgets where she is for a second and Lance says the same thing he did when they first met but now is crying and has a wobbly smile because holy shit it’s his found sister and he almost lost her.
  • Shiro and Keith have their brotherly talk and Shiro tells Keith not to worry because everything will be alright
    • something does happen and its actually shiro who’s freaking out and keith calmly tells him “Someone I look up to always tells me: Patience yields focus”
  • When they get back to Earth, Lance and Coran have a similar talk from the first season but instead of talking about what they miss about their homes, they talk about what they miss about space
    • they also talk about things to do now that they’re on Earth like going to the beach, seeing the rain, etc.
  • “They call me the Tailor because of how I thread the needle”
  • They’re all training and making the laser gun noises
  • BONDING MOMENT 2.0
  • Lance getting to see his family again and when he hugs his mom he just cries and whispers “I just really missed your hugs”
  • Garrison people are chasing them and they have the same scene with the hover bike
  • Keith looking at all the evidence he has in the shack and tells shiro how he could find him all because of it
  • Hunk and Shay stare at the sunset after the war ends
  • “Saviors of the universe….I like that” with the camera zooming out as they stare at the sunset on the beach.

(if any of you have anything else please add on!!)

The signs during the end of the world (Zombie apocalypse)
  • Aries: armed up, SLAYS a large amount of zombies
  • Taurus: eats their way to the grave
  • Gemini: posts selfies and memes with zombies on all social media
  • Cancer: hysterically cries in a dark corner with their dolls
  • Leo: finally finds their enemies and kills them because now it's free to kill ppl bc we all die, no?
  • Virgo: reads book and drinks wine on their cozy coach like nothing is happening
  • Libra: plans a group hug event
  • Scorpio: trynna protect their PC, fights the zombies with their bare hands
  • Sagittarius: Too busy planning what to wear through the end of the world (decides that they're gonna spend the end of the world in front of the wardrobe trying to hug all the designer clothes they have, accidentally is the only survivor of the apocalypse, and cries afterwards because they don't have anyone to speak about their designer clothes that they had)
  • Capricorn: *locks themselves in the safe with their money*
  • Aquarius: actually travels the world and smokes weed, not giving a shit about the actual end of the world
  • Pisces: *gathers all the remaining living people* "-hi guys i gathered you all here today to ....tag urselves im that giant zombie"

my aesthetic is whenever the losers’ club group hug

Favorite Stiles Scenes: Season 6, Episode 10: The Reunion with Lydia

Alright, so here’s the final reunion scene Stiles had in episode 10. I really do try to keep my blog ship-free so everyone can enjoy it but I wanted to do all three reunion scenes and have a complete set. My favorite part is the hug at the end though. I love how each reunion fits with the characters’ relationship with Stiles and they all got to hug him in their own way.

The other reunions: [Scott] [Sheriff Part 1] [Sheriff Part 2]

I love the coloring in this one. Everything is visible and clear. It’s funny I’ll do these gif sets, then go back to watch the episode and forget how completely dark it is! Now I’ll do other scenes from this episode and episode 5 (and I might slide some Theo in as well!)
