the physical act of love

unusual truths about the signs

aries: can actually be super fearful. mask emotions by being rash and reckless because they fear, more than anything, messing something they care about up. they feel that their emotions get in the way of making good decisions. 

taurus: not lazy; picky where they spend their energy. taurus’ can be very passionate, being ruled by venus, and when it’s something they care about taurus will go to the ends of the earth to achieve what they want. 

gemini: feels extremely deeply. always trying to dissect why they feel the way they do instead of embracing it. mask pain with wittiness and sarcasm. never honest with themselves though they can be so brutally blunt with others. 

cancer: probably has anger issues or anxiety. because cancer’s feel so deeply, they look for an outlet to release these emotions. anger is the one i’ve seen the most - cancer’s are volatile and find a way to hurt the person they take their anger out on - they go for the kill shot. 

leo: way more insecure than they front. many leo’s are physically confident, as we all know, but, like gemini’s, leo’s couldn’t be more emotionally insecure. they love the idea of love, but they’re terrified of emotional intimacy. 

virgo: their controlling organization comes from a lack of control over their heart. virgo’s - much like gemini - can have flitting attraction. their interest is temporary, as they enjoy a mystery, but only for so long. it’s a very fine line to keep the affections of a virgo, as they’re extremely picky with who they settle. 

libra: can be completely cold-hearted. scorpio’s and cancer’s get angry, but usually out of emotion, and it’s evident that no matter what they say they still care. libra’s however, have a switch that completely detaches them from all feelings when they’re pissed. will make you question if they ever even cared. 

scorpio: common perception of scorpio’s is that they’re kinky and sexual bastards, when really they are one of the few signs who views sex as an act of love rather than of physical feelings. scorpio’s only have sex with people they love - it’s more their heart than body. 

sagittarius: that wanderlust spirit is rooted deeply in fear. sagittarius fear attachment to one place or person for too long; it’s why they tend to travel. either physically or emotionally, locking down a sagittarius is very difficult, but not because they just want to see the world, but because they are very distrustful in nature. 

capricorn: like gemini, capricorn are very emotional. however, capricorn tend to ignore feelings instead of trying to understand them. known as driven, they tend to focus all their energy on a single thing, and think that emotion is a distraction from their goals.  

aquarius: super loyal. even though aquarius are very opportunistic and tend to take the route they think is the best for themselves, they also have a very compassionate side to those they sympathize with. aquarius’ hearts are difficult to capture, but once you do they’re also difficult to lose.

pisces: much more manipulative than perceived. pisces may feel deeply - as a water sign - but they use this to their advantage. pisces have a wicked accurate gut feeling due to how deeply in tune their are with their own emotions. if a pisces thinks that you can benefit them, they will use you.

The Five Love Languages 

1. Words of Affirmation: Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important—hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.

2. Quality Time: In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.

3. Receiving Gifts: Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous—so would the absence of everyday gestures.

4. Acts of Service: Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes. The words he or she most wants to hear: “Let me do that for you.” Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter.

5. Physical Touch: This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.

Marvey and romantic tropes

Inspired by these awesome posts: x, x, here’s a list of ten (of many tbh) romance tropes played with in Mike and Harvey’s narrative, starting with ones that actually are on TVTropes, followed by ones that are just general narrative things (All gif credits at bottom of post):

1. Meet Cute (+Rescue Introduction)

Do I even need to explain this one? A sick grandmother, running from the cops, mistaken identity…Literally the first 20 minutes of this series is about these two and how they’re going to meet thanks to some crazy circumstances, and how a malfunctioning briefcase full of pot is going to change their lives (and they don’t even know it yet):

2. Forgotten First Meeting (Or Connected All Along if you want to be finicky):

Harvey passed Mike and Trevor on the street ‘five years ago’ when Mike was working as a bike messenger and Mike said ‘If I ever look like that shoot me’ which is ironic because he will work so hard to look like that in five years but also not that ironic because Mike probably said that to deflect Trevor’s attention from the fact that he is 100% checking Harvey out and very interested in what he sees (And it is what he sees, since the camera is Mike’s gaze and it does a full elevator scan. Interesting choice there, editors):

3. Disposable Fiancé, and the Break-Up/Make-Up Scenario:

I’d have to post the entirety of 3x02 to illustrate it all tbh? From the ‘We’re done but I’m still going to be pissy about your new relationship nvm that the trigger for you falling into the relationship was that you were upset from our “break-up”’:

to the ‘I’m going to get right in your face for maximum UST and heartbreak for when I tell you we’re done’:

to poor Louis becoming the disposable fiancé who sees an opportunity:

and woos Mike:

while Harvey denies to himself how much he loves misses him (while looking that heartbroken jesus gabriel):

And of course it doesn’t work because right as Mike and Louis are about to ‘make it official’:

Along comes Harvey like everyone knew he would with these faces and ‘You’re not going back on your word [to Louis], you’re going back where you belong [with me]’:

And then you get the Big Damn…High Five:

(with Louis looking on which is bittersweet because unlike the usual disposable fiancé scenario he is sympathetic).

4. Race for your Love:

Okay, literally, this is even more romantic here than in its usual use?? “Most commonly found in Romantic Comedies, Race For Your Love usually occurs five minutes or so before the credits roll.” “Someone is about to leave the city/state/country forever, but their lover runs to the train station/airport to convince them to stay.” 

Except Mike is not about to leave the city he’s about to turn himself in to make sure Harvey doesn’t do the same, to protect Harvey, and Harvey’s running to stop him?? And we get shots of Harvey running this long fucking run in slow mo (and it continues into the next episode lmao):

5. Odd couple:

“A friendly (sometimes romantic) relationship between completely different people, usually the main characters.”

Good lawyer, bad lawyer. Winning vs caring, etc., their contrasts would need a whole separate post:

6. [Saving the] Damsel in Distress:

Mike is literally Harvey’s damsel in distress lmao?? It’s always because of something happening with Mike that Harvey ends up doing his angry “I’m going to save my bb” power walk:

7. Act of True Love [Fight]:

“An act of sacrifice or high risk, motivated by love, which proves beyond a doubt that you put your loved one’s needs before your own.”

Not only do they both pull these, they fight about who gets to put the other’s safety above his own, multiple times:

This happens again for a whole half fucking season I’m not going to post gifs of all of it because it would be too many but it culminates in a downright physical fight because Harvey’s pissed Mike’s pulling the Act of True Love and has locked him out of doing it and so he throws a fucking glass and then goads him into hitting him because he’s in that much pain over what Mike’s doing for him what the fuck:

And then Mike goes to prison and Harvey gets him out because of course, and you’d think it’d be over now right? But nope.

Narrative things that aren’t really on tvtropes:

8. Protectiveness/Possessiveness:

They’re just very, very protective and territorial of each other. Not hard to interpret as a romance trope at all. Again, to illustrate, I’d have to post gifs from the whole show so just have two at random:

9. “Staring at the empty space you should fill”:

I mean, I guess there’s a platonic interpretation for standing outside someone’s empty office with your morning coffee, broodingly staring at the chair they used to sit in. I usually only see behavior like this in romantic contexts in other media though:

10. “At Your Door” parallels

Doorstep parallels are just an otp staple and they have the most in the show. Like, someone still has to make an updated version with the most recent examples lmao, so here’s another two at random:

Monsta X in Bed

a/n: Once again, this is all based off of my personal opinion and surface look at their natal charts!

Shownu: Ok, so for this guy, sex is more of a learning experience rather than a romantic one. He’d be a little more dominant than Kihyun, though. He’d love surprising you by switching things up right when you’re about to finish, so that you’d have to start all over again. Mostly, he’d be down for whatever. You want to be restrained? Alright, cool. He has the silk ties and fluffy handcuffs (he wants to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible) Want to restrain him? Ok, just be sure to use the silk because it feels the best. He’d honestly love it when you top him though. He’s such a BIG dude who often intimidates with just his presence, so having you control him would be a nice change for him. Expect lots of pillow talk afterwards and maybe a glass of wine for the real ‘love-making’.

Wonho: Ok, so if you want a F.R.E.A.K. call Hoseok. He naturally OOZES sex appeal, but especially so in the bedroom. When it comes to his lover, he switches between accommodating and demanding. It’s a good mix, though, don’t worry. He’d be quite the dominant and feisty fucker. I’m talking light BDSM (blind-folding, being tied up, soft humiliation, etc.) He would love to dirty talk you while in the act because he loves watching you squirm. He’d also be the king of aftercare because this guy, deep down, just loves making you feel amazing.

Minhyuk: We all know how lovable this guy is, but he is even more so within the confines of the bedroom. Deep inside of him, he has some pretty intense and even dark fantasies regarding sex. You would help bring out some of that darkness because everyone should embrace at least a little bit of their dark side. Once it’s out, it’s out. Once submissive, a flame would ignite within him, and he’d become the most dominant lover of them all. Lots of biting, smacking your ass, slight humiliation, and dirty, dirty, DIRTY things whispered in your ear. But then it’d be over and he’d bring you water and pinch your cheeks with that disarming ass smile of his. Like???

Kihyun: I’ve got one word for this dude: submissive. Literally, you can do whatever you want with him, and he’d be completely pliant beneath you. He’d love it when you were on top and dirty talking the hell out of him. He’s sensual creature who loves the physical pleasure of sex, and may even see the act as being strictly physical. The time afterward would be the ‘love-making’ part (drawing a bath for you both, sharing wine, cuddling, pillow talk, etc.) He’d love it when you brought him new ideas for sex positions, and would totally do them. He’d be the type to read up on it so he could make sure it was perfect (lol he’s too precious) Sex, for him, would be more of an intellectual experience, but certainly no less passionate or HOT.

Hyungwon: OK, SO LISTEN. IN MY OPINION, HE IS THE MOST DADDY OF THEM ALL, AND POSSIBLY THE ONLY ONE I WOULD ACTUALLY CALL DADDY. We only ever see like a total of three emotions out of this kid on television, and that’s because he’s a super private person. That one time he was asked if he’d ever seen porn, and he was like ‘nah’, he wasn’t lying. He was more than likely out there actually DOING it, so that he didn’t feel the need to watch it. He’s a conservative lover, though. He won’t do it with just anybody, but when he falls in love with you, and takes that next step…get ready for your mind and body to be B.L.O.W.N. Making love with Hyungwon would be earth shattering, so plan to not have a voice when it’s all done. I don’t foresee any particular kinks other than just dominating the hell out of you. He’d be super cuddly afterward, though, because he’s sated and in love omg.

Jooheon: This one is a devious little thing. He’d be the type to turn sex into a competition (one that he’d definitely win lol) He’s definitely a naughty boy in bed. Sometimes things seem out of the blue, but he’s actually been planning it for days. Car sex? Yeah, he’d already thought of that a few days before. Sex in the practice room? He’d written out just how it’d go beforehand. He enjoys being in control in bed, so expect to never be on top (unless he asks you to be) I see him having a daddy kink or some kind of master kink. He’d love for you to call him daddy while you’re on your knees. Something about that kind of influence and power really turns him on. But don’t get him wrong – he’d never finish before you. Even though he loves power (and orgasm denial lol) he’d always let you finish before him because, ultimately, your pleasure matters the most to him.

Changkyun: Based on interviews, and just by looking at the dude, he doesn’t seem much like a sex fiend – this is correct (lmao). But don’t get me wrong, Changkyun loves sex, but it has to be with someone he feels completely comfortable with. It takes him a little while to open up to you sexually because he has a fantasy in his mind, and if you do not fit his fantasy then he shuts down. Eventually, you ground his daydreaming ass and get to business. The good thing about Changkyun is that he LOVES to experiment. He’s like a sex fairy or something (lol) Just tell him what you’d like to try, and he’ll be up for it. Don’t worry – whips and chains excite this one.

Let’s talk sex.

Let’s talk sex. It’s okay for a girl to choose to wait to have sex until she’s emotionally connected to someone. It’s okay for a girl to choose to be a virgin until she finds the right guy. It’s okay for these girls to love men who view sex differently than them. 

All people are different and view sex differently. There are girls who love one-night stands. There are girls who view sex as a physical act only, no love or emotions necessary. All of these girls exist in all of our novels. (*spoilers* Katya talks about this in Infini.) 

Another thing to all the twenty-and-thirty-something-year-old virgins. You’re allowed to maintain your virginity. You’re not weak or a doormat for choosing to be with a sexually experienced guy or waiting to be in love or waiting for them. You’re allowed to process your emotions, even if you’re hung up on one guy, and act accordingly. Just like guys are allowed to do the same. 

None of the heroes or heroines in our novels shames anyone for their choices concerning sex. But we see, all the time, people shaming them for their choices. 

You know what’s wrong? Believing a woman is weak for choosing to remain celibate just because a guy has chosen differently than her. 

She does not have to do what the guy does if she doesn’t feel like it. 

We see all sorts of criticism for our books, but the most prevalent are directed towards our female characters and their choices concerning sex. People view Lily Calloway – our sexually active character – as a slut and gross. People view our twenty-something virgin Rose Calloway as unbelievable (and in some cases weak, except her ice-cold personality makes up for it somehow). And now people view our female character who needs an emotional connection to have sex as a weak doormat. 

Here’s what we’ve deduced (*spoiler alert, we don’t agree*): 

So these girls can be all of these things, but the guy has to be these things too: the guy has to be a virgin if she’s a virgin. The guy has to remain celibate if she’s celibate. The guy has to be as sexually active (or more) than the sexually active girl? 

Likewise, if all of these guys are sexually active, then the girls better not be waiting around for emotional or personal reasons – any reason they give does not matter – they better be sexually active too. But just the right amount. 

We’re sorry; we don’t believe in this.

note: this isn’t directed at any specific review. This is 4 yrs of us processing what people have said in various places over the past four years.

Fic Author Recommendation - HubbleGleeFlower

Pray charge your glasses and be upstanding - here follows a toast to the fic writer known as HubbleGleeFlower.

Some of you may know Glee’s work already. If that’s true, you are already blessed, aren’t you? And if you don’t know of her work, then let me tell you something - she’s something.

Glee’s writing is wide ranging in themes, from sweet and funny, to heartbreaking, to gaspingly erotic. She has a grand total of 28 fics on AO3 (here’s the link for you to peruse them all), but right now I’m going to highlight three of my favourites of hers:

In the Dark Hours: As of this date, this is her top Kudos’ed fic, and rightly so. It’s a marvellous post-S3 fic, where Sherlock and John slowly and carefully navigate their way into a more healthy friendship, and then work together to break down the last of John’s barriers between him and the love he truly deserves. This is done through private messages on John’s blog, locked by a password that John (of course) knows Sherlock will break. The fic really gets into John’s complex psyche which has guided his decisions over the years, and Sherlock learns about patience and letting love in. It’s a slow burn, but oh, the payoff.

In the Trees: I read this before I met Glee, and oh my holy hand grenade, is it hot. It’s an alternate first meeting of John and Sherlock, and John susses out Sherlock’s sub tendencies before Sherlock himself figures it out about himself. It’s a brief encounter, but it’s clear that it’s huge (giggle) for both of them. It’s good dom/sub play with lots of enthusiastic consent on all parts. Short but really well done and memorable.

Like a Man: This is Glee’s latest piece, and I was fortunate enough to get a preview of it. I had, I think, a total of three minor suggestions, finding it astonishingly perfect already. I’ve always found the dialogue around tops and bottoms an interesting thing about slash fic: how passionate some people are about their preferences, and the ensuing sexual dynamics. Glee explores this through John and Sherlock, triggered by a homophobic comment from one of John’s war buddies; this causes a bit of a sexual crisis for John. They then navigate through this issue, with Sherlock showing John what he (Sherlock) has learned from John about love, and demonstrating it through the physical act of love. It’s an extraordinary piece, and destined to become a fic favourite.

There’s a bunch of others - go play in Glee’s fic-brain for a while, you won’t regret it.

I’d also like to give tribute to Glee’s other achievement: she was the Prime Mover behind the Fic Authors’ Writing Retreat, now in its second year. Sherlock fic writers from across North America have come together to share wisdom, squee together, read fic aloud, and generally have a blast of a time. I’ve made eighteen new close friends, some of the best writers I’ve ever read (and I have a degree in English Lit) - and I have Glee to thank for getting it all together.

So raise a glass to Glee, and read her stuff, and tell her how amazing she is.

Arrow Dodge Challenge

Request: This wasn’t requested.

Pairing: Tyler Scheid x Reader

Summary: You’re filming the ‘Arrow Dodge Challenge’ with the whole crew and things don’t go exactly as planned.

Warnings: Very mild injuries and swearing.

Word count: 779

A/N: I’ve been getting major Tyler feels because of @post-stripper-anon (all her writing is wonderful, even though they’re only headcanons, but that somehow makes me like it even more..? It’s mostly Tyler + nsfw, so if you like either I recommend you check her out; 10/10) and I was watching the arrow dodge challenge and after seeing Ethan being shot with the arrows I came up with this and I literally stopped mid-video to write this. Also, I got 2 ideas for this and I kinda want to do both so I split it into 2 endings whoops. So basically while you read this I’ll be writing the other 2 parts and will upload them as soon as I can.

(You can find the two alternate endings at the bottom of the post)

Tip for writers who struggle with writing fluff: think of the five languages of love (physical touch, acts of service, gifts, quality time, words of affirmation) and imagine what your character is most likely to use when showing love, is most likely to be receptive to (those two don’t have to be the same!). Imagine a situation where the two or more characters would use it, how they would perform it.

The three hardest tasks in the world are neither physical feats nor intellectual achievements, but moral acts: to return love for hate, to include the excluded, and to say, ‘I was wrong’.
—  Sydney J. Harris
Love Languages

Hi there! I love your blog! Have you heard of the 5 love languages? I know everyone is different but I was wondering generally where you would put each type. Thanks!

What are the 5 love languages?

  • Gift Giving (giving gifts from love)
  • Quality Time (spending time with those they love)
  • Words of Affirmation (affirming those they love)
  • Acts of Service (caring for those they love)
  • Physical Touch (self-explanatory)

Disclaimer: anyone of any type can have any of the five languages, but here’s how I correlate them to cognition, for fun.

Gift-Giving: Fi/Te types (TJ, FP) and sensors in general (SP, SJ), because giving a gift is often an act of silent devotion (Fi) intended to bring another person sensory pleasure (Se/Si); though if the gift is given and the giver gets an emotional rush off their delight, that’s Fe ;)

Quality Time: everyone, but extroverts may prioritize it; thinkers may prefer it

Words of Affirmation: Fe-users, especially the EXFJs, and the intuitive-feeling types (who can see ‘beyond’ the obvious and encourage others with their ideas and visions toward the future)

Acts of Service: STJs serve out of silent devotion, SFJs often want to serve for society’s betterment and take pleasure in the reactions (Fe)

Physical Touch: strong sensing types (SP, SJ)

(You should also remember you have a love language you use toward other people, and one you prefer to receive from other people, and they may not be the same. You may show love through gifts but crave words of affirmation, etc.)

For fun, my family ranks thus:

Dad: ENFJ - Gift Giving / Words of Affirmation

Mom: [E?]STJ - Acts of Service

Me: ENFP - Quality Time / Acts of Service

Brother: [E?]NTP - Quality Time

superheroladies  asked:

I want your HCs about the generals!

YES so this is gonna be long.

Ezor

- Comes from a large, but very poor family

- Her father was galra, and he loved his wife and kids very much and was a good dad and husband. Alas, he was a low-ranking soldier in the empire and died in battle, leaving his wife and ten kids behind.

- Ezor herself is a middle child, but often acted as the older one because her eldest siblings were not supportive and left the home when they came of age and never came back. Ezor is very bitter towards them.

- Often had to take odd jobs to support her family, mainly in retail and entertainment (where she honed her skills as a gymnast). These jobs (and pressure from being a good older sister) forced her to put on a “mask” of positivism and hide her actual feelings.

- After a number of years in this system she met Lotor who offered her a job as one of his generals after seeing her preform. She initially declined as she didn’t want to abandon her family like her older siblings while also harboring resentment towards the empire for her father’s death.

- Lotor eventually proved himself to be honest and she joined the generals after talking it over with her mother and younger siblings.

- Ezor makes a habit to this day of sending money home and face-timing her family when she has the time.

- Her non-galra species can reproduce  sexually and asexually, so one of Ezor’s younger sisters is actually am asexual clone of their mother. Because the sister a product of asexual reproduction, she grew up faster than Ezor and looks older than her.

- Said sister has clone daughters of her own and Ezor loves her nieces very much and sends them presents everytime Lotor’s squad stops at a new place.

- Ezor herself cannot reproduce asexually because of her galra genes, (but she doesn’t mind at all, she’s not ready for kids).

- When Ezor first joined Lotor’s squad she didn’t tell the other generals that she could turn invisible (Lotor knew because he saw her performance) and often played tricks on them (like moving their stuff, stealing little things like their toothbrush). Zethrid never figured it out until Lotor made a plan that required Ezor to spy and use her invisibility powers. You can image Zethrid’s rage.

Narti

- Her blindness is congenital. In fact, her non-galra species naturally don’t have eyes and communicate through telepathy.

- The other generals and Lotor don’t know much about her past, or even her age for that matter.

- She was an experiment at one point, and was infused with quintessence that turned her telepathy from simple communication to mind-control abilities.

- She met Lotor when he went to “visit” the lab in question. He originally wanted to steal some of the information they’ve gathered there. He learned of her powers and asked if she wanted to join to which she agreed.

-  Her tail is strong enough to pick up Zethrid, and can pick up Acxa and Ezor simultaneously. She has picked up her friends on occasion (this bothers Acxa more than anyone as it disrupts her while she works).

- Not surprisingly, is the only one who Kova would not bite if she tries to give him a bath.

- Loves audio books and always gets a new one when the group goes to a city with a bookstore. Her favorite genre is classical fantasy.

- Is unnaturally good at space bowling and Zethrid considers her her personal rival.

Zethrid

- is the daugther of a wealthy commander, but illegitimate. And as such was hidden away when growing up.

- Her mother died when she was young, and thus Zethrid has little connect to her non-galra species.

- She was raised by her father learning to fight, and he expected her to become a soldier of the empire. He also didn’t wanted to be publically associated with her. She became a gladiator fighter instead.

- Not only did Zethrid ignore her fathers’ desires she actively declared her parentage live in front of all the spectators.

- Despite being a gladiator, she refused to fight anyone who would obviously lose to her (someone like Matt, for example). It was out of mercy, but she would publically word it as it were an insult to her might. 

- Received a lot of hate from racist people on account of her mixed heritage, and the aforementioned refusals.

- Was the first general Lotor recruited before he was  exiled, when he was forced to go see a match of her’s with Zarkon.

- She loves playing with Kova, and is one of the only people besides Narti who could brush him without protest from Kova himself.

- Is actually well-eductaed, and knows a lot about weapon creation and mechanics. She is well versed in history and math as well.

- besides gladiator fights Zethrid is champ at space bowling and has gone pro in the past. Almost always gets perfect games and get really upset if she gets a spare.

Acxa

- Is the quintessential nerd, knows a lot of things over a variety of topics. Her main love, however, is chemistry. Once was a in a bad mood for a week because they named a newly-discovered element after the creator and not after the fact that it resembled peanut butter (No one except Narti figured out why she was so upset).

- She knows the space periodic table (over 400 elements) by heart and can recite it normally, by individual rows and columns, by order of electronegativity and metallic character. She is currently working on memorizing all the atomic masses.

- Doesn’t really know what her non-galra species is, but after meeting Keith and Hunk she has a vague idea that it might be human.

- Is the only general who actually has a menstrual cycle, which is a major inconvenience to her. Since galra don’t get periods she thought she was dying when had her first one. (Ezor also freaked out when she heard that Acxa bleeds for a week once a month every month).

- Was an orphan and has vague memories of her mother. Doesn’t like talking about her past.

- Grew up in a combination orphanage + boarding school, where she received her early education and exposure to science, and was often bullied because of mixed-race and the fact that she was actually real smart and also real small. Has self-esteem issues as a result.

- She accidentally (well it was kinda an accident) spilled hydrofluoric acid* on one of her bullies who was also her lab partner, when he “jokingly” tried to stick her head under a fume hood filled with NO2** gas. She got in deep trouble as a result, and was actually scheduled to be sent to the druids for “correction” when Lotor visited the school. He had heard of her talent and was interested in recruiting her. She joined immediately.

- Is a touch starved individual, and while she outwardly acts like she hates physical affection, she loves it when her friends hug her.

- Often falls asleep on her desk. Like it’s a regular thing. The other generals or Lotor have to carry her back to her room. Ezor often doodles on her face. Kova has actually sat on her face and slept as well.

- wears night glasses. While most galra can see in the dark and in very dim settings Acxa cannot. So when the squad go out at night she wears these big things that sit on her face. They make her look like a nerd.

Lotor

- was a test-tube baby where Haggar experimented with combining her genes with Zarkon’s.

- Haggar didn’t expect him to survive past infancy, as he was often a sickly infant (and later child).

- gets real bad hay fever and hates it when he has to go to a planet that has a lot of greenery. Also allergic to space cockroaches for some reason.

- Has the sweetest genuine smile, it’s very lopsided and cute and makes him look quite earnest. Very few people have seen it though, these people being the generals.

- Is closer (very loose usage of the term) to Haggar than Zarkon. Is pretty confident that she wouldn’t use him as a test subject for her experiments.

- was actually born intersex, but presents as male. Unrelated, but he is also asexual and doesn’t really have an interest in romance currently.

- Has ocular albinism and bright lights hurts his eyes. Really terrible eyesight overall, and gets cross-eyed a lot.

- Initially studied psychology so could actually try to understand his parents. (He still doesn’t).

*hydrofluoric acid is one of the most corrosive acids known. It leaves real deep burns that go through the bone. Inhalation can give you a heart attack. (Acxa’s bully was didn’t die though, and it wasn’t a bad spill).

**NO2 - nitrogen dioxide is a very poisonous gas and can cause respiratory emergencies

anonymous asked:

Hi! Your writing is, as usual, absolutely amazing and you post so much and you're absolutely amazing for it! If it's not too much to ask, could you do something where Bokuto, Nishinoya, Kenma and Tendou are reassuring their s/o who is very self conscious about their own appearance and have little confidence? It can be headcanons or scenarios I don't mind, whichever you prefer, dear~ thanks a bunch!!

I’ve come to discover through these that headcanons are, like, the best thing to do ever. Lol, but this was cute, Anon!

Hope you enjoy!

P.s. I just freaking figured out that other people add their own tags when they reblog my stuff and I literally spent about an hour and a half going through my notifications to see what those tags were. I love them. And I don’t know whether to be embarrassed by how much time I spent on it considering I have so many finals to work on! LOL.


Bokuto Koutarou

  • While this boy explodes with confidence, he does know what it’s like to fall into pits of insecurity, so he’d very much make sure to approach the situation very carefully.
  • He’d tell them the way they were feeling was valid - in the sense that society puts these insecurities on everyone - but that they should know that they’re better than anything society can produce.
    • And he’d be sure to tell them everything he loves that society perhaps wouldn’t - the birthmark on their cheek, their head to toe freckles, the beautiful dark kinks in their hair, their curvy figure that he looooves cuddling. And boy won’t stop until he names everything he loves: EVERYTHING.
  • They’ll probably laugh, tell him that they get it and that he has to say that because he’s dating them. Oh no, mistake.
  • It goes from 0 to 100 real fast, because he’s not finished.
    • Their laugh - like, the one where there is no control, where they’re crying and possibly snorting - is his favorite sound, their ability to take on the world so bravely, the way they love so fully, not holding anything back. There is so much about them that is so unique and grand and it kills him that they would even consider he didn’t mean every single word of it.
  • Cuddles, snuggles, and delicate kisses are to be expected afterward. And you better believe he’s spend HOURS just admiring every single part of their body - he’ll kiss every freckle, even the ones you didn’t know you had! - before he takes his time making love to the soul he cherishes to dearly.

Nishinoya Yuu

  • I actually think insecurity is something that might be a little hard for Noya to grasp right away. This kid has almost never been self-conscious about anything, it’s a very foreign concept to him, so catching on to the fact that something is wrong might take some time.
  • And he probably wouldn’t realize how much he’s not helping the situation when they come to him with these insecurities and he brushes them off initially with a, “you shouldn’t feel that way.”
  • That would start the trend of them just keeping things to themselves, because if he’s just gonna blow it off then what’s the point in telling him?
    • I can see it getting kinda bad. They’re fighting for no reason now and they finally snap one day saying how he can just go date someone who’s perfect then.
    • Oh. That’s when it hits him square across the face. And boy, does he feel like the worst boyfriend in the world.
  • From that moment on, this precious bean would try his best to understand what they were going through and be more aware of what they need from him when those moments come on. And he’s a quick learner, taking initiative in snuggle time and providing them with whatever will make them feel loved and wanted - words, physical contact, acts of service - they name it and he’ll do it because he never wants them for feel that way ever again.

Kozume Kenma

  • Really, just really, this kid would know that they’re insecure before they can even figure it out themselves. He had spent so much of his life trying to hide from the insecurities he faced while in middle school, there’s just no way that he wouldn’t see it as clear as day within his significant other.
  • But he wouldn’t bring it up directly, he’d wait for them to come to him when they really needed him. He’d watch them closely though, the last thing he’d want is for them to get too far deep into their own negative thoughts.
    • He’d probably be so wrapped up with making sure they were okay that he would just leave his PSP at home. Everyone is concerned for Kenma’s health - even them - but there are more important things to worry about.
  • Despite his subtle efforts to keep them from falling back into their insecurities, it’s bound to happen - sometimes you just in those moods, ya know? - and they’re breaking down in the middle of their dinner or homework or something just as random.
    • The first time in happened, Kenma panicked. He didn’t know how to handle such an outburst of intense emotion, but he figured it out slowly - and with a LITTLE help from Kuroo?
  • Now it’s just second nature, this boy will let it happen - because you can’t stop the inevitable - and gather up as many blankets he can find to wrap around the both of them where they’re stay burrowed for the rest of the night with Kenma whispered small reassurances and reasons why he loves them that are only heard by them and their surrounding covers.

Tendou Satori

  • I think that with Tendou he might actually be a little oblivious. The kids called ‘Guess Monster’, there are some things that he’s aware of and some that he misses and I feel like this is one of them.
    • Maybe it has something to do with his own past? Like, he knows what it’s like to be self-conscious about who he is and that he holds his significant other up so high that they could never feel that way because they’re amazing, there’s no one out there like them.
  • So when it does end up coming up that their self-conscious of their appearance he is totally floored. Because how can they say that? Don’t they know and see how pretty, no beautiful, no GORGEOUS they are?
  • For a couple days he’s not exactly sure what to do. He knew suggesting besting their enemies as he did when he was younger is not the way to go when the enemy is your own brain, right? But despite not knowing exactly what to do, he never left their side, choosing to console them with his presence at the very least.
    • Tons of forehead kisses and verbalization of his love is how they spend that time. He may not know exactly how to help them gain confidence in themselves, but he can give them all his love - which ends up being one of the main contributing factors to their attitude towards themselves becoming better.
  • Omg, I can just see this tol bean spending a morning in bed with his significant other just covering their face with kisses, smile wide, and every time they try to protest against something he says he just lays another kiss on their lips. Sweet thing will stop them with all his love from thinking less of themselves!
BTS in bed; according to their MBTI types

Suga, Rapmon, Jungkook:

“Mediators take their time in becoming physically intimate so that they can get to know their partners, using their creativity to understand their wants and needs and adapt to them. People with this personality type are generous in their affection, with a clear preference for putting the pleasure of their partners first – it is in knowing that their partners are satisfied that Mediators truly feel the most pleasure.”

Jin:

“All this material asceticism and conflict avoidance support one primary goal – to free up mental resources for more important things. Logicians’ creative, vivid imagination make for a surprisingly enthusiastic, passionate, and romantic partner. While Logicians may prioritise their inner world too much, imagining interesting and exciting intimate situations that are never expressed to their partners, they also use this rich inner world to achieve as much as possible in intimacy – they rarely want for ideas.”

J-Hope:

“As their relationships enter more sexual stages, Consuls’ emphasis on process and tradition continue with established gender roles and socially acceptable activities.
However, since Consuls are so centred on the physical world and are quite emotional, they tend to be very affectionate and sensual, and overall great sexual partners. People with this personality type love to find ways to make their partners happy, and this sort of intimacy is a great way to do so. As the two partners become more comfortable with each other, Consuls are often open to experimenting and trying new things, so long as their partners are willing to reciprocate.”

Jimin: 

“Protagonists are known to be dependable lovers, perhaps more interested in routine and stability than spontaneity in their sex lives, but always dedicated to the selfless satisfaction of their partners. Ultimately, Protagonist personality types believe that the only true happiness is mutual happiness, and that’s the stuff successful relationships are made of.”

V:

“People with the Campaigner personality type express these ideals sexually as well, exploring the physical with imagination and passion, viewing these times together as a chance to let their feelings for each other shine, sharing their love and affection. Campaigners will willingly experiment with their partners, even early in a relationship, but they can also be oddly perfectionistic, believing that these physical acts are a representation of their deeper love, and as such should not be performed carelessly. This perfectionism is also a reflection of their sensitivity, their desire to not disappoint, and Campaigners appreciate a well-placed compliment.”
