(Abuse, ableism tw) Yesterday I visited a preschool Portia’s therapists and the public education system want to put her in. Portia receives services because of her developmental disabilities. It’s a program that’s a part of public education and even infants can qualify. Before yesterday, it seemed her therapists only concern was making sure she was developmentally up to date physically, and educationally (think fine and gross motor skills, speech etc).

The preschool was-my realization. The preschool was full of kids that had various disabilities all on the “socially disabled” spectrum. Children were given directions in a “fun” manner around a circle and were literally forced to participle. Even if you didn’t want to. Physical redirection was used. That means children not looking at the teacher would had their heads physically turned towards them. Children who weren’t doing the arm movements for the dance correctly had their wrists grabbed and were forced to do the movements. Forced high fives. Forced everything. Absolutely no child had a choice for participation. It was do it or someone will grab your body and do it for you.

One child, a nonverbal autistic child, at the table where they were given instructions to glue hearts on a valentines box, had a stick of glue held in front of him by a therapist. She had a hold of his wrists as he kept reaching for it. “What is it. No. What is it.” She repeated over and over as he whimpered and reached for the glue to participate. This went on for about 15 minutes.

He also endured one on one ABA from the teacher using a reward only method (praise) for following instructions and making eye contact.

A child had a tantrum and was held down. I asked how a child having a melt down was usually handled. They said that it depended on the child. She seemed to avoid my question but told me that she had “lotion” that she would have them rub on their hands in front of the class and called it “calming lotion.”

I saw a child being held tightly in a therapists legs for not crossing his legs and bouncing them.

I asked what the purpose of the class was, my therapist explained this class was meant for “social therapy”, by forced participation.

This program is paid for and supported by the education district.

Never mind that restraining a child, forcing a child to do something, allowing an adult access to a children’s body with no choice for the child, and forced socialization and physical contact (forced high fives as an example) are all inappropriate and I would personally define that as abuse. But what’s important is all of this therapy is not scientifically to be successful. It’s…non effective, it does nothing but create children who believe they must follow orders (for participation, social activity etc) by an adult, allow anyone to touch their body with no ability to say no, and allow to be physically redirected by that adult for not meeting the demand.

In what way is this educating children socially? How come in a regular classroom this is abuse but in a class with a bunch of disabled kids it’s therapeutic? I’m just…I’m really irritated and disappointed that stuff like this is funded by the education system.

Im not sure if I should even mention this. But when you are an abused child initially you fight back. Sometimes that fighting back lasts a week, sometimes months, sometimes years. Eventually you reach this point where you stop fighting and your brain shuts down and you go blank, almost like you separate from your body and don’t reject it. Sometimes something twitches inside from time to time to fight back, but you actually end up fighting the urge to defend yourself rather than stopping the abuse. That’s the look I saw on the kids faces. They were made to hold up dolls with happy faces “I’m happy today” because they are being conditioned to just ACCEPT what is happening to them.

I am planning on pulling Portia completely from the entire program. She’s never been to that classroom and never will, but the moment they believe she isn’t socially “fit” and needs to be in some sort of conditioning class to make her appear normal, is the moment it doesn’t benefit her. Let’s be real for a minute: the autistic brain cannot be hard wired, it cannot be cured. This is because we still don’t fully understand what autism is. You can certainly force and autistic person to look and seem like an autistic person, and autistic adults who have experienced this sort of “conditioning” all have PTSD and more.

I literally do not ever care if Portia doesn’t act “normal” socially. I don’t care if she doesn’t look people in the eyes and I DEFINITELY do not care that she doesn’t want to touch anyone or let anyone touch her. I don’t care if she doesn’t want friends or if she likes people. I don’t care if she lines up her toys when she plays with them. I don’t expect a man without legs to run a marathon and I don’t expect Portia to be this social butterfly or become a politician or something. She’s content with who she is and society has the obligation to accept her the way they except a deaf person and sign language.

I’m just feeling very irritated. It’s 2017 and there was a whole room full of children enduring therapy that doesn’t actually work and scientifically has absolutely ZERO grounds to be used in an education system. I feel like it’s 1940 and they want to treat some house wife’s depression with electroshock therapy or some gay mans sexual attraction by giving him female hormones.

If I don’t speak out against it then 10, 20, 30 years later it will still be there. It will still happen.

Can you just pray for me, the work that’s required to pull her out…it isn’t going to be easy. I’m going to look like the crazy paranoid mother. In a lot of ways because of her disability she’s basically forced to be state educated. As crazy as this sounds I’m so scared of her being forced to go to public school I’ve thought about leaving the country. Ive personally witnessed so so much abuse in the schools towards autistic children…I just can’t accept it.

I'm not really surprised at the huge knife collection, but dude... why do you have a sword?

why wouldnt i? what else am i supposed to do when i need to stab something thats far away but i dont wanna throw something? get closer to it?? it could stab me back maybe. i hate that. swords are great, theyre the perfect middle ground. swords have all the stabbiness of knives but all the range of somebody with longer arms 

i have just realized that i could also solve this problem by using a regular knife and having tony build me a longer arm

but that sounds inconvenient when instead i could just use a sword

Things I know now about college that I didn't before

♦️Carry a 1L water bottle everywhere and refill it as needed or you will get dehydrated and feel dizzy walking from class to class in the midday sun

♦️Find out where microwaves are available and save some money by avoiding any overpriced campus food. Watch out for lines though!

♦️Make friends with your TAs I cannot stress this enough. They usually aren’t out to get you and understand the struggles of an undergrad.

♦️You are always going to carry too much stuff in your bag. Planning on doing your econ, math, and bio hw in your two hour break? Think again. Be realistic or your back will pay

♦️Even if you prefer print books over ebooks, the fact that you literally always have access to your ebooks on any mobile device you have will be a blessing

♦️Sometimes certain offices and buildings and labs on campus have their own free printing, separate from the library or your dorm

♦️Invest in a printer if you can (b&w is all you need btw). Share the cost with your roommate for ink and paper and charge anyone else 50% of what your school charges per page. Charge so people don’t take advantage of your kindness!! You’ll save many, many, lives my friend.

♦️Set up an exercise schedule as strict as your class schedule. Try your very best to follow it

♦️Please eat at least twice a day I know it can be hard without having others to remind you.

♦️It’s ok to go a day alone, especially since college involves a lot more interaction than you may be used to.

♦️Work hard to understand and you’ll get the grades you deserve.

♦️Eat fresh fruit every once in a while your skin and insides will thank you.

♦️Invest in comfortable shoes or arch supports if needed. Don’t ignore physical discomfort!!

♦️Some people can regularly stay up til 4am and others can’t. Some people can’t function on less than 9hrs of sleep and others can live with only 4hrs. Everyone’s different!! Follow your own sleep schedule!!

♦️Pasta made with a bag of frozen veggies, a pack of pasta, and a jar of pasta sauce can last you most of a week.

♦️Talk to your professors about general things too like their dog or their weekend plans and all bc heh they’re human too and forming connections is great. Also, remember that being professional doesn’t mean being boring or serious all the time, crack some jokes and don’t stifle your personality.

♦️Set boundaries early on in /all/ your relationships, personal, romantic, professional, all of them. Show people you know you deserve respect and they’ll give it to you.

♦️Lastly, college is mostly for academics but hey you aren’t just a student. You’re someone’s kid, friend, employee, advisor, etc. balance out playing those roles too.

anonymous asked:

did you seriously just say we should let pandas go extinct to save other animals or am i misinterpreting because that is a very questionable judgement

ALRIGHT MY FRIEND I have received about six messages in this vein since yesterday, but I worked for thirteen hours today and I have no time for this nonsense. Short answer: YES. 

I’m gonna summarize some salient points on why pandas are awful from a conservation standpoint:

  • PANDAS LITERALLY CANNOT MATE IN CAPTIVITY. IT’S UNBELIEVABLE
  • Artificial insemination and hand-rearing of cubs are basically standard practice, and still they usually die. At what point is it reasonable to give up because I think we hit it DECADES AGO
  • In 35 years, only 90 cubs have been born in captivity outside of China
  • Wild panda numbers have increased a bare (bear?) 200 individuals in 10 years, despite literal billions of dollars being poured into conservation
  • NO OTHER AREA OF ANIMAL CONSERVATION EVEN COMES CLOSE TO THE MONEY BEING POURED INTO PANDAS. NONE
  • And yet we’ve managed to literally rebuild populations of black-footed ferrets, oryx, and California condors with exponentially less money
  • Despite all of this, only 10 pandas have been released since the 80s, and all but two died
  • I bet you wouldn’t have guessed that it’s because their habitat is destroyed and fragmentary and barely protected!!!!!! 
  • The only good thing about panda conservation is that protecting their range is also protecting tons of other species. Which would be great, if more of their range was being protected effectively.
  • There is way more money in keeping captive pandas captive than in releasing them!! surprise!!!!!!
  • Zoos pay a lot of money to get pandas on loan because people just LOVE looking at pandas and they can’t afford to house and care for their other animals without people coming to visit! Or do any kind of conservation whatsoever!! Panda-economics! (this is kind of a pro as opposed to a con but its the kind of pro that makes me feel like I need a shower)
  • Pandas are endangered and sort of have a role in spreading bamboo seeds around, so they get billions of dollars. Every shark ever is MORE endangered, and without them the entire ocean ecosystem would collapse, but that’s fine they don’t need money (I’m not bitter) ((I am bitter))

I’m gonna be frank with you. We are in the middle of a mass extinction event, caused by us. Not to be a downer (jk, I’m gonna) but we’re already driving so many species to extinction that we cannot afford to save them all with the money and interest that is in conservation right now. 

Instead, we have to do some kind of awful extinction triage and assess which animals will do the most good to work to conserve - and getting into keystone species, ecosystem engineers, and other truly integral species is a whole other can of worms I’m not gonna touch on - but there are animals that are “more important” in a certain sense than others, in that they can support or affect a much wider range of other species than another

People only care about big, cute, fluffy animals - a common lament heard from conservationists, but it’s so true. There are thousands, if not millions of species that don’t fit this mold that conservation work would benefit eons more than pandas. It’s like fixing a pretty, stained-glass window in a house whose foundations are collapsing and thinking you’re helping. 

Pandas have always been the face of conservation, and they continue to be one of the biggest and most expensive ongoing failures.

While the most obvious True Name to protect is a student's own, it's worth thinking about how they must be careful with others' as well. Students telling tales about their old high school friends would be best off using false names there as well, lest those same friends decide to pay campus a visit. Students who knew each other before attending Elsewhere U likely know one another's True Names, but any abuse of this power is moderated by the knowledge that the other could well retaliate in kind.

Oh god though imagine your high school friend visiting - “No, no, Greg, listen, I’m dead serious, you’ve got to call me Hashtag literally the entire time, I’m not joking at all, no I can’t explain why - look, I thought it was funny, okay? Please just do this for me. Also pick a nickname, it’s literally life or death, hahaha what a funny joke i just made but really what’s your nickname, you cannot visit me otherwise.”

Juvia is definitely a stalker.

She even invaded Gray’s sub-conscious once…

twice….

…and a third time!

I mean, how far can she go? Not even Sigmund Freud would be able to solve this psychological stalking situation, because Gray is definitely not interested in her that way to actually think about this dangerous being on his own. Definitely not.

It’s canon Gray wouldn’t approve her stalking tendencies. Yeah she stopped about 400+ chapters ago but how can you justify the invasion of Gray’s psyche? She literally has no control of herself. Poor little abused and harassed Gray-sama. We shall call the police maybe. Juvia definitely needs to be reclused in a corner where she cannot stalk him. Freud send help pls.

____

lmao guys I suck at irony but I needed to write this down.

Juvia Lockser isn’t a stalker and Gray definitely loves her approves her, as more than a friend too.

But he isn’t the only one…

FRIENDLY REMINDER Silver Fullbuster actually left Gray in care of Juvia ( to his stalker omg what kind of father would do that!1! Did she brainwash him? Is Silver anti-gray too?) in other words: HE GAVE HIS BLESSING TO THE COUPLE.

Father’s approval? Mh, a pretty big deal in Japan don’t you think?

dec. 26, 2016: what NOT TO DO vs. what TO DO as a student

hey, everyone!!!

after rambling on and on about my first semester as a high school junior in this post, I have decided to compile a list of tips (if u can call them that) of things you should think of doing versus things you SHOULD NOT DO, LIKE, EVER as a student! i’m planning on following these things during the upcoming semester.

DO NOT:

  1. Study everything the day before your exam. First of all, it’s just too much stress. Plus, there’s no way you’ll be able to remember everything while testing. Just, don’t do it. I had done this multiple times last semester, and I just never want to experience something like that ever again. Here is a way to break your study time/material into chunks. Here is another way.
  2. Eat nothing in school. (Unless it’s Ramadan or something.) You need to eat, you’ll feel dizzy and weak and your health will be negatively affected without (HEALTHY) food. That happened to me. What I (generally) take to school are a few crackers, my own homemade cheese ‘dip’ (or some Babybel/string cheese), yogurt, and a little candy bar.
  3. Spend too much time in the bathroom/shower. This is THE WORST thing I do to myself…this is my “go-to” method of procrastination. I just shower or spend time in the bathroom for, like A LOT OF TIME per day. Just take this as a little piece of advice from me: don’t spend time you could be practicing for that math test, badly singing Whitney Houston songs. Just don’t. Your future self will thank you.
  4. Study continuously for prolonged periods of time. I HATE sitting down for a long time, oh my gosh. My back hurts, my butt hurts, I start to get drowsy. Refer to tip #9 of the “Do’s” for a solution.
  5. Start a TV show during the school year. Unless you have PERFECT time management skills, just don’t get hooked into a TV show. I’m 99.98% sure you’ll binge-watch and regret your life. I’m really glad I didn’t start watching Gossip Girl last semester, and I’m not gonna do it this next semester, either.

DO:

  1. Invest in a planner or start a bullet journal. I’ve used both methods. Just get any cheap old notebook, or, if you can afford it and you want to, splurge a little and just record all upcoming events and everything you need to do. You don’t have to spend 1229834 hours decorating your planner/bujo like the perfect ones you see here on tumblr. Maybe add a little color code, a little doodle here and there. Just decorate it however you want (or don’t!!!) as long as you’re not taking away precious study time. I personally have a 2017 planner that I’ve recently started to use, so I’m just gonna stick with that, tbh.
  2. Designate a day per week/two weeks to just review past/current material taken in a particular course. Okay, in the past I’ve been too lazy to actually do this, but I AM gonna start doing this next semester. I’m probably leave the weekend for physics and chemistry, and maybe Sunday for biology…I think I’m gonna make a specific post about that later.
  3. Stay hydrated! Oh my gosh, this one is so important. Whenever I don’t bring a water bottle to school, I end up cranky, sleepy, and suffering from a headache. For those reasons, I think it is always a good idea to take a water bottle with you to school.
  4. Find time to exercise. It is rather hypocritical of me, a lazyass slob, to say this, but you pretty much ALWAYS have SOME time during the week for a workout. Even once or twice. Not gonna lie to myself anymore.
  5. Do as much “homework” as you can in school. I have a total of 45 minutes of break per school day, so I’m going to use those to do work. The only problem I have is finding someplace I won’t be distracted by my friends. I think I’ve got that covered, though.
  6. Organize your binders/folders/whatever frequently. Just do it and YOU WILL NOTICE A BIG DIFFERENCE in how quickly you finish your tasks. I have an expandable file folder in which I keep any papers/notes/stuff I write or receive throughout the week, and then after the end of the week I spend time filing them into big binders for each subject.
  7. Maintain a clean and tidy room + desk. I literally CANNOT focus if my study area is messy. My grades DROP. It’s hard to study when you have an area the size of a large textbook to do work in, and a pile of papers/clothes/BOTH at your feet. I advise you to tidy (which does NOT mean redecorate) your desk before your study session, just to get some more space to think and do work.
  8. Join some kind of school club/extracurricular activity. Joining my school’s Model UN has given me so much joy and I’ve met so many wonderful people. I really advise you all to join something!! Just remember, manage your time wisely!!!
  9. Use the Pomodoro method to study. It’s simple yet effective. Try it and you’ll understand what I mean. I’ve especially aced a ton of memorization-based tests because of this method.
  10. Start working on projects early. Not only does this reduce stress levels, it also may help you boost your grade! If you experience any issues, you can just write your question(s) down on a little sticky note and ask your teacher instead of panicking at 1 AM!!!!

Good luck to us all!!! <3 Rawan

literally tho all arguments we’ve ever seen between louis and paps (get a fooking job you fooking loosah; have some respect for a child; you’ve got your fucking photo now fuck off; and now this lax thing) have occurred not because the pap was bothering louis personally but because they were harassing people he was with like his gf, his son, his family or his friends and i think that says a lot about how louis recognises the inevitability of paps in his life but cannot and will not stand for them bothering or harassing those close to him and how he will defend those he loves from that harassment

guys I am so serious but I have no idea what just happened and I am having real, physical difficulty typing rn because my whole body is shaking? like, okay, so this thing flew over head that woke me up, I guess it just sounded like a regular aircraft but kind of low, and then there was this burning heavy pressure and it made the back of my eyelids go white (even though I was in a dark room with my eyes shut hang on of course I had my eyes shut oh well) but I am not making this up and it felt like I was, idk, being microwaved or fucking something and I was like ‘well this is how I die’ but it went but I felt…. just awful, after, and I still do but the main thing is my hands? are shaking so badly I cannot describe how much I am kinda of not okay

also this is like, 7:17am in the uk it just happened in like the last half hour? anyone else?

EDIT: okay so my friend on skype is an angel and talked to me about normal shit and now I have stopped shaking and feel better, I really hope it was aliens because dude that would be sweet but I’ll talk to my two-doctors-who-are-also-my-parents about it and see if I need to see an actual GP, sorry for wigging you out but I literally kinda felt like I was? dying? for a bit there. oops

Edit edit: sooo I might have had a seizure, going to see the doctor later today, whelp. Really sorry for scaring you but bloody hell I never want that again.

surgeon!wonwoo

i suck balls at science and can’t remember anything at all from any of my classes but i think it’s one of the most interesting and unfathomable concepts in the world - and in my world, so does wonu so enJOY

  • wonwoo and his specs gave me this idea and it ki l l ed m e
  • so i knew i had to write a lil something abt it :-)
  • ok where do we start
  • remembered his mama camping out in the kitchen all the time and then heard the occasional “ah!” as she nipped her finger cutting some onions
  • and raced like usain freaking bolt to the medicine cabinet to reach the bandaids
  • and the look in her eyes when he quickly patched it onto her
  • it was just a bit of blood, but 4 year old!wonwoo was still hopped up on the high kitchen counter with one hand on his hip, the other wiping an imaginary sweat drop from his head, and gave a nice long “phew! you’re ok, ma! scared me there”
  • then proceeded to yell at her with his extremely not-deep-yet voice (om g can u imagine) for not being careful enough and interrupting his power ranger episode
  • but a few nipped fingers and a million thank-you smooches (“eW MOM gEt awAY i’m 4, i’m too old for kisses) later, jeon wonwoo decided to become a surgeon
  • bc how is it not cool to sew severed fingers back together???
  • so through elementary and junior high, he walked into science class everyday with a little hop in his step for his favourite subject and ready to learn about cells and mitochondrial functions and enigmas of the muscle and much more
  • until he discovered more than just sewing severed toes and ears back together
  • he remembered his 7th grade teacher talking about how the brain is the most powerful thing in the world, and just a simple nug to the head can send it all crashing down
  • he also went on to explain that the brain will never be a mystery solved, but those who try will never be short of acclaim
  • and since then, he delved into the world of neurology
  • by delved, i mean, dove the fuck into it, then drowned, then woke, then dove some more
  • through high school, he topped every single one of his bio classes and won every single science award in the school board
  • how????
  • HE’S A GENIUS
  • and also stays in on sunday afternoons to read his bio 4.6 textbook instead of sushi with friends
  • leading to best friend mingyu’s endless grumbling and whining that they never get to hang out anymore
  • meanwhile mingyu has his socks and sweaters and clothes all at wonwoo’s place; has a toothbrush there, buys food for his parents, uses the stove at wonwoo’s more than wonwoo does the pOINT IS HE BASICALLY LIVES WITH WONWOO
  • but everyone around wonwoo knows how much it means to him to be able to make this work
  • he marvels about science bc it’s a practicality but finds beauty in its enigma and endless endeavours of research and study
  • (jeon wonwoo is basically a nerd)
  • (but a hot one)
  • but yes, all his life, books, textbooks, textbooks, and books are all he’s known
  • so with all this accumulated knowledge he literally fucking powers through his undergrad and masters programs like.  .. … bruh
  • he then gets accepted into the second top med school in the country boY
  • and this was such an eye opening experience for him because as much as his undergrad and masters did for him with theoretical aspects of science, he finally got to do hands on experiments and witness clinical trials and watched a live!! open!! brain!! surgery!!
  • so finally he goes through his internship and residency for a few years at this amazing hospital in the heart of the city and has already become most renown neurosurgeon the hospital has seen in years despite his age
  • imagine little wonu in faded green scrubs, with a tiny notepad in his hand and occasionally pushing his glasses up his nose, as he scurries around with his resident trying to take notes during rounds
  • to this hot-ass, confident, head of neurosurgery surgeon that has nurses and residents (even interns and PATIENTS) slipping on their drool for him in his white coat and cerulean blue dress shirt, the top button left untouched (seungcheol had to slap his hand away multiple times during breakfast to keep him from trying to button it again)
  • but lbr he still trips over his laces bc he forgot to tie them before he left in the morning and buttons his dress shirt wrong under his white coat when coups doesn’t come in the morning to check up on his wardrobe choices for the day 
  • one time, accidentally brought mingyu’s grocery shopping list from his briefcase to the pharmacy rather than the prescription for ibruprofen for his patient jesus christ wonwoo
  • the point is, knowledge has always come easy for him, the other stuff have not 
  • ,,,,,,and then there’s u
  • oh boy
  • science is ur nemesis
  • ultimate. nemesis.
  • the first time you ever stepped foot into your science class in the sixth grade, every word that came out of ur teacher’s mouth, to you, was just a complete ,,,, , , ,what??
  • and ur not stupid (actually very completely opposite), ur brain just physically, literally, cannot comprehend the concept of science
  • even if it may be so extremely fascinating to u, chem!!! physics!!!! and bio!!! are allergic to sticking to ur brain so u just learn to avoid science at. all. costs.
  • remember when i said that jeon wonwoo was a classic genius and a social termite like he’s so shy and weird around new people that he just deflects it at all costs?
  • WELL NOT YOU
  • so u went into journalism bc instead of memorizing formulas and using every unit of area in ur brain, ur communication is ur best friend
  • through high school and university, you were the campus butterfly
  • you knew everyone and everyone knew you, and any event that needed an mc? a motivational speaker? a presenter? that’s you!
  • you and best friend soonyoung always do those stuff together and you fell in love with the art of communicating, articulating, and analyzing information, all the while keeping the listeners intrigued and focused the entire time
  • but unfortunately the years after ur undergrad trying to look for gigs with ur firm has been extremely unsuccessful and it was to the point where u didn’t know if u wanted to stop this or continue bc it was just too low of a demand
  • until one day!
  • u come into ur office and find a piece of paper on the bulletin board talking about the new neural clinical trial happening at this huge hospital near u, and they were looking for someone to cover it!
  • and at first u were like um kk clinic? try? what?
  • but .2 seconds later it hits you that thERE’S AN OPEN OPPORTUNITY
  • and u vow to plow through it as boring as it may be, bc it’s been just sitting there and people haven’t signed up probably cause medical cases are usually a failure and such a bore to talk abt
  • you need this
  • so u quickly apply with all the info you need to and two days later, you’re stepping foot into this huge hospital and escorted to the neuro ward to get things started
  • when u get to the floor ur led by nurse!jeonghan to the head surgeon on this case
  • i think y’all know where this ish is going 
  • and jeonghan begins asking u a few questions abt the case, trying to gauge where you are with the info, and its safe to say u have nada dirt on this
  • so he laughs and begins to explain
  • this was the first clinical trial this hospital has done in 14 years, and despite being a renown teaching and surgical hospital, it has never quite reached its potential on the research aspect 
  • so the new head of neuro, dr. jeON, has decided to go forth with the new clinical trial (an experiment where those with the sickness subjected to the study will volunteer to be apart of the research, using themselves as a way to find a cure) for huntington’s disease, an inherited brain disorder that slowly deteriorates one’s ability to move, speak, function, as brain cells being to die off
  • he’s already got you so hooked on the case that you begin to wonder why no one at ur firm did an extra bit of research in the first place to snatch this gig 
  • but ur glad anyway CAUSE ITS NOW URS
  • u probably looked so flabbergasted and numbly excited that jeonghan mistook it for ur cluelessness and nerves, so he goes
  • “dw, it’ll be fine! dr. jeon here will walk through everything with you anyway, and you’ll basically be with him for the entire course of this trial to document everything, so tomorrow, just immediately head up here”
  • and knocks on the door labeled “dr. jeon wonwoo, ph.d, m.d., head of neurosurgery”
  • and for the head of neuro, for someone taking forth in an idea that hasn’t been touched in over a dozen years in such a renown hospital, you did not expect the door to be opened by a 
  • beautiful
  • human being 
  • his glasses sat perfectly atop his face as his sharp yet kind eyes rested upon urs 
  • and his white coat and black dress shirt today and nice slim pants and a pair of $200 light brown dress shoes bOI
  • and when he opens the door and finds ur mouth agape and eyes shining with excitement he feels like a leap in his chest 
  • like who is this beautiful person 
  • and he scolds himself, no wonwoo stop this nOW 
  • and he doesn’t know if it’s bc he hasn’t been on a date in like forever or if it was simply u
  • answer: it was simply u 
  • but we’ll get to that 
  • and jeonghan notices the tension so begins giggling and retreating from the scene
  • so wonwoo clears his throat when it’s just the two of you left
  • introduces himself and you m e l t bc
  • his……..voice……………..
  • and you stutter ur name and in his head he’s like o h m g what a pretty name what do i do with myself
  • so you enter his office and its surprisingly extremely tidy and put together for someone that probably has to worry about so much in a day 
  • and begins to talk about the case with you 
  • and remember the cute and stuttery person that opened the door to see u like 2 minutes ago
  • GOODBYE
  • bc here’s jeon wonwoo talking about science and his eyes light up brighter than anything you’ve ever seen
  • he talks about huntington’s first to give you a bit of background as to what it is, and then delves right into his plan
  • his hands begin to move with his words and he smiles when he begins to talk about how no one has attempted this before and maybe this could make a difference in this hospital, his career, and even medical history!!
  • and he kinda noticed you blanking when he talked about the logistics of the science so he kinda laughs to himself, knowing that science might not be ur thing
  • but for some reason, ur ok with science if u have this man talking to u abt it 24/7 ;)))))))
  • and u take notes on this and he notices ur pretty handwriting so gathers up his GODDAMN COURAGE to ask u a simple question
  • “so you’re a journalist?”
  • and u begin to tell him that you loved being able to tlak about something that reflected on someone’s experiences and share them with the world, just liek this one 
  • and he smiles and thanks u, knowing that it must have been difficult to agree to a medical case 
  • u assure him its no problem, meanwhile swooning over his s m i l e
  • and it’s only been like 30 minutes but u’ve already developed a crush like wow 
  • so for the first week, your conversations are a wholesome mixture of science, stutters, facepalming when u say something cringey and accidentally, and hoping to make the other laugh 
  • in the second week, you begin to meet the patients coming in, taking each of their stories and details with huntington’s 
  • and for the first time, you see how wonwoo interacts with his patients
  • and that crush that you developed become sso much more - you have this whole new found respect for him as a doctor
  • with care and intent, he asks his patients abt their day before going right into details of the treatment, knowing that all these people are doing his career a favour and the least he can do before they risk their lives into this experiment is at least be their friend
  • and even 70 year old women that can barely move anymore still manage to blush at the sound of his voice 
  • u see the way he holds their hand when he’s explaining the process and the courteous nod of his head as they talk to him and u know this man is more than just a surgeon and that he’s just an amazing human 
  • by the third week, your conversations have now transitioned to telling each other what u did last night and what ur planning for dinner tonight 
  • and u know to bring him coffee every morning now
  • the first time u did it, he legit had STARS in his eyes bc o mg u r so cute 
  • and u guessed it right the first time, that he liked his coffee black with just a dash of sugar
  • GET THE METAPHOR
  • by the end of the month, the more you learn about him, the more you’re amazed
  • you guys become closer and share the passion of wanting to help ppl in some way
  • and ur relationship now has become a complete budding and teasing relationship and there’s literally never a dull moment with u 
  • ur fav thing to do together is to do acrostic poems
  • u also take bets on who’s sleeping with who in the hospital
  • he always wins 
  • “its not fair u OBVIOUSLY know more abt them than i do!!!”
  • “hey babe, dont hate the player, hate the game”
  • and then u have to keep ur knees from buckling bc bABE ? ?? ? ?
  • the nurses always comment on how you’ve brought him so far out of his shell and he never really used to talk to anyone besides his patients, but he’s been treating his residents to dinner, helping the nurses out with the paperwork, and it’s only been happening since u came
  • and u r like
  • . . ,,, ?? me?
  • and they’re like yes! do u not notice how red he turns everytime u walk into the room?
  • you soon learn his favourite colour is blue
  • his favourite band is my chemical romance 
  • im kiddin g 
  • his best friend is mingyu and he’s a chef 
  • you learn that he has a younger brother and his first ever splurge was buying him and his parents a cottage by the ocean
  • also that he never really eats at home and he barely ever gets to go home bc of the gruelling hours and so he tends to just eat in his office before he checks up on his patients during night rounds 
  • you also learn that he’s having a housewarming party for his new condo this saturday and was wondering if yoU’D LIKE TO COME ALONG???
  • by this point, your research was mainly complete and you were a third finished with ur piece on this
  • so ur like y know what? SURE
  • and u try ur fucking best not to blush, but as you leave for the night, jeon wonu does a HUGE happy dance in his office before realizing that his walls and doors are glass and peopLE CAN SEE U WONWOO GODDAMn
  • but he texts u his address with a smirky face 
  • “jeon wonwoo why are u sending me a text w a smirky face” 
  • “idk that was my attempt to be cool did it work” 
  • “no”
  • “oh”
  • so it was ur day off on the day of his party and u know wonwoo doesn’t really throw stuff like this cause he only has a “small” group of friends
  • “it’s only gonna be u and my small group of friends”
  • “how small”
  • “well i grew up with these guys, there are abt 13 of us”
  • “THIRTEEN ISN’T SMALL”
  • and usually you’d be fine bc u have no problem meeting ppl but like these are wonwoo’s brothers???
  • you wanna try so hard to impress these people bc–
  • wait wonu isn’t ur bf??? WYD
  • SNAP OUT OF IT 
  • so u slap urself and then take like four hours to find the right outfit and do ur hair nicely 
  • and u show up in ur fav outfit and look bomb asf yas 
  • and he opens the door after u knock
  • and
  • oh
  • my
  • lord
  • he’s wearing a simple white t-shirt and ripped jeans 
  • jeon wonwoo
  • phd
  • md
  • head of neurosurgery 
  • in ripped jeans 
  • rip reader
  • and as u lose ur words, he also loses his and ur both just standing there clearly REALIZING THAT UR IN LOVE WITH THE OTHER PERSON AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU’VE EVER WORN ANYTHING OTHER THAN PROFESSIONAL CLOTHING AND WOW? SO? NICE?
  • so he snaps out of it bc yes i’m hosting this party thts right, and brings u inside 
  • you hear a bunch of exclaiming and hushing from inside the rooms and a lot of limbs knocking into the walls as 13 human beings sprint from inside of the condo to mEET THE JOURNALIST THAT JEON WONWOO HASN’T SHUT UP ABOUT IN TWO MONTHS 
  • and they all rush out and ur a bit overwhelmed but introduce urself and then scan through all the faces
  • you notice nurse!jeonghan, head of pediatrics!chan, his best friend, mingyu, and–
  • wait
  • “KWON SOONYOUNG???????”
  • yes ur best friend from uni also happens to have grown up in the same neighbourhood as surgeon jeon and u cant believe ur luck
  • so hoshi jumps out from the herd of men and tackles you with a hug and u can’t believe this until wonwoo explained he didn’t tell them ur name bc they would go crazy stalker-bitch mode, hence why they were so excited to meet u today 
  • so the rest of the night was spent with everyone being completely loud and tipsy and pushing the two of u together in an attempt to be slick they’re not 
  • and u see the bond that all the boys have and how boisterous wonwoo is around them too and u feel so lucky and ur heart is so full to witness a group of people truly in love and as close with one another 
  • so by the end of the night, as they all leave, soonyoung stops u at the door before he goes and tells u how happy he is that after losing touch post-uni, u’ve managed to bump into each other today again
  • but he also hugs u and tells u that wonwoo hasn’t shut up abt u 
  • and that he hasn’t been in touch with his brothers in a rlly long time bc of stress and anticipation with this new project
  • and that although wonwoo doesn’t do this much, he can tell that he’s super comfortable around u and that he seems to glow when he talks abt u 
  • and ur like omg s o noyougn  st op po
  • so after he leaves, you stay behind to help clean up 
  • but you’ve also decided
  • to confess
  • bc ur project is almost over and the paper is almost finished and ur ok with leaving on this note, regardless of if he reciprocates the feelings or not 
  • u just had to tell him, it was in ur nature to 
  • and u almsot back out but at the door, just as ur about to leave 
  • you were gonna say it 
  • and then 
  • his lips are on urs and god they’re soft and ur eyes just close immediately and his two hands cup ur face, intensifying the kiss, holding u up and taking up ur space as if he owns it and wow, it does things to u 
  • after what feels like an eternity, you part and u look at him with his swollen lips and rosy cheeks and glistening eyes and u almost cried right then adn there
  • bc wow ur in love with jeon wonwoo and u can’t believe u haven’t even told him that 
  • “i’ve been waiting to do that for so long”
  • “idiot, i was gonna confess first”
  • shrugs “i guess i just beat u in everything then”
  • that gets a smack on the head
  • until he asks u to stay the night and he can drive u both to work in the morning tomorrow and u agree bc how can u say no and so u end up staying over and wearing his sweater to bed and he lies there in bed literally hyperventilating bc SWEATERS ARE HIS WEAKNESS LIKE WHAT
  • so u drive into work the next morning with ur hands intertwined and in the corner of ur eye as ur walking in, u see head of pediatrics!chan slap a fifty dollar bill into nurse!jeonghan’s hands
  • so the rest of that month is spent going through with each patient and stealing chaste kisses in the x-ray viewing rooms and getting teased by everyone in the hospital 
  • even the patients 
  • until by the third month, the trial hits its first roadblock 
  • patient 04 had died on the table just as jeon wonwoo was inserting the second tube, and as surprised as u are that this was the first malfunction with the trial, it hits u nonetheless
  • hearing the news, u drop everything and go to his office after the surgery
  • this was the first taste of adversity in ur relationship too and u were curious to see as to how you guys were going to deal with this, esp since ur work was integrated into ur personal life 
  • but u walk in and there he is 
  • eating a freaking popsicle 
  • jeon wonwoo’s patient just died on the table and he’s in here eating ice cream
  • and u didn’t know if u were confused? angry? horrified?
  • and u close the door behind u as u walk in and draw the blinds for the glass walls and windows 
  • and as u turn around from doing that, he chucks the popsicle into the bin, walks up to you slowly and drops his head onto ur shoulder
  • you freeze, unsure if he’s crying or not, but u hear steady breathing and his arms slowly creeping around u and ur sure he isn’t 
  • but u can tell that he’s exhausted and scared, even if no words are shared between the two of u 
  • so you both stand there for god knows how long, holding each other, breathing each other in, releasing all tension and heartache from the day without a single word, just the sound of heartbeats and breathing 
  • until finally he lifts his head, eyes droopy and a small smile on his face, arms still around you, when u cup his face and tell him that ur so damn proud of him 
  • everything is going to hit a roadblock at some point, and this was bound to happen. we entered this knowing that it was science; anything can happen. just hang in there, wonu, we can do it 
  • and that was the first time wonu said i love u out loud 
  • and for all the people that doubted he was going to ever get a girlfriend with his head stuck in so many textbooks, it was the head stuck in the textbook method that even got him here to meet u in the first place SO SUCK IT
  • and so by the time u finish ur paper and the trial is reaching its end, there was a mixture of patients that successfully responded to the trial and those that didn’t make it 
  • but ur paper gets high acclaim from hospitals across the province for its research and editorial skills
  • and wonwoo received the highest achievement award from the board for his endeavours with the trial 
  • and after many long and gruelling months filled with work and chaste kisses here and there
  • you finally have time to take a seat and take in everything 
  • and marvel at wonu as a surgeon and as a human
  • bc how in the damn world did u ever get so lucky with science??

this,, ,, ,, is so long but enjoy bc i love jeon wonwoo

Idk why I never see anyone talking about The Loud House like, at first my thoughts on it were “Great, a show about ten sisters, and the main focus is on the only boy in the house”

BUT HO BOY WAS I MISTAKEN. 

This show: 

- challenged gender roles/issues, especially those associated with masculinity

- gave each of the girls their own distinct personality that cannot be confused with the others

- has a four year old???? Who knows nuclear physics???? SHE’S LITERALLY FOUR SHE’S JUST OVER HERE CASUALLY BLOWING SHIT UP

- Lincoln’s best friend Clyde has two dads

- follow up to the last one, his dads are seen together, being lovey dovey, in multiple episodes, they are a biracial couple, and no one ever questions the fact that he has two. They’re also both adorkable and super caring

- you don’t ever see the parent’s faces, similar to a comic strip, UNTIL YOU DO. AND IT’S FREAKY

- goth child Lucy scaring the shit out of everyone. never gets old

- so many adorable sister/brother moments between Lincoln and his siblings

- teaches a lot of really good lessons, like sharing, supporting your family, and recognizing that sometimes things you say/do can hurt other people.

- so. many. puns. and just bad jokes in general

- classic cartoon episode gags (dad falling in love with his new car, “save the soon to be dissected frog” episode, “we took the wrong baby home” nonsense, etc)

- the comic strip style the cartoon is done in is really visually pleasing

- Lincoln is honestly an amazing role model for young boys who think it’s bad to be too feminine. He accepts his “girly side” in multiple episodes, while still acknowledging that he is a guy and is comfortable with himself. 

- just watch this show. it’s super cute, you won’t regret it. Not to mention the theme song is ridiculously catchy. 

Hi! Here is my submission for Ace Valentines Day. Below is my ace love story and a message for any aces out there who need some love.

My name is Nina, I am asexual, and I have been in a committed relationship with an allosexual person for 6 wonderful years.

I’ve always known there was something different about my relationship with sex, but for most of my life, I had no idea what that difference was. I just kind of assumed I was weird and nerdy. About 2 years into my current relationship, I discovered asexuality. I now consider this time a revolution, and awakening of my true self, but at the time, it was devastating. It wasn’t easy to come to terms with the fact that I couldn’t give my partner what they wanted, and for a long time, I felt ashamed of myself for not being like everyone else. I couldn’t even say the word asexual without crying with shame, because I just couldn’t come to terms with who I was. It took time for me to accept myself as ace, and to discover just what that meant for me, but with the help of an incredible friend, my partner, and my own damn strength, I got there. Now, I am proud of what I am. I understand that I AM weird and nerdy, but I’m also awesome, and my orientation is a special part of me.

My partner was a HUGE support to me while I was coming to terms with who I am. When I first told him I thought I was ace, I was terrified that he would leave me. I remember sobbing in the car with him…I loved him so much and I hated myself for not wanting sex like he did, like EVERYONE did. I was so scared that my lack of sex-drive meant that somehow, I didn’t love him, even though I thought that I really did. But you know what happened? I told him everything, all my questions and fears. And he listened. He heard me. And time and time again during the ups and downs of that process he was there when I needed to talk out how I was feeling, he validated by existence when I felt erased by the media, by my friends, by everything around me. We communicated about what we both needed, and about how we both felt about each other.

It wasn’t always simple, and sometimes, he accidentally said the wrong thing. Sometimes, when he asked for sex it would send me spiraling into self-loathing, because I just didn’t understand why I didn’t want what he wanted. But every time I said no, he always respected my boundaries and that was key. We talked and talked and struggled through the uncharted waters of our new situation, and eventually, we became comfortable with our new relationship. Now, there is an unspoken rule between us that any sexual contact will ALWAYS be initiated by me. If he asks and I say “no”, that is the end of it. And we are still intimate! Remember, there are a MILLION ways to be intimate with someone you love that DON’T INVOLVE SEX! We kiss each other all over, we hug, hold hands, cuddle and talk for hours, we touch each other’s bodies with loving hands, and tell each other that we are beautiful. We share blankets, play-wrestle, give massages and take baths together. We find our own ways to be close. I can honestly say I have the most intimate relationship with my partner that I’ve ever had with anyone…and we haven’t had sex in months (literally can’t remember the last time lol). 

The fact of the matter is this: sex is definitely important to a lot of allosexual people, and that’s okay, BUT if someone really loves you, sex will always come second to making sure you feel safe and comfortable. If someone cannot give you that respect, love, and understanding, my friend, keep walking. You deserve so much better, and you never EVER have to play second fiddle to someone’s sex-drive. 

To each and every one of you who doubts themselves, hates themselves, and thinks they will never find love, fight that fear, fight that loathing. You are not broken. You are so worthy! Worthy of love, of respect, of self-confidence. You are not a dork, you are so cool! You are not a prude, you are just not sexual. Being a virgin does not make you less than anyone else, and being an ace who has (or has had) sex does not make you any less ace! If you don’t like to kiss, then you don’t have to kiss anyone. If you don’t feel comfortable with physical contact, then you don’t have to have that! You do NOT have to put your needs second to please your partner. You do NOT deserve to be treated poorly because you are different than them. Don’t listen to the media, to your friends, to your parents or ANYONE who tells you otherwise. Hold you head high, even if you don’t feel strong yet, because you ARE strong, and you WILL feel strong one day. I promise you. 

If you want romantic love in your life, do not let yourself believe that you will never find it. There are so many amazing people out there of all orientations who can and will love you. YOU DESERVE LOVE, YOU DESERVE RESPECT, YOU KICK ASS. 

I love you all, Nina

Ty gets tired and thinks everything's funny. Eth gets tired and hates everything. Tyler gets stressed/anxious and has to talk about it and yell about it and take up space and fight something. Ethan gets stressed/anxious and he gets very quiet and still and small and wants to cry and disappear and bottles it all up. Tyler gets nervous/excited and goes stone faced. Eth gets nervous/excited and gets super giggly and stupid and adorable

Okay this is going to get really long but I think this is really cute??? Like drawing parallels between people is my favorite okay


-Ethan just wants Ty to go to bed so he’ll STOP LAUGHING

-Tired!Tyler tickling as jumping on top of Ethan, trying to get him to ‘cheer up’ and Ethan is half his size but is just like 
“I’m going to fucking murder you.”

-Tired!Ethan in his corner of the office, nine (bone dry) Starbucks cups around him, absolutely GLARING at the screen because the computer mouse isn’t working and everything is ruined because he hasn’t slept in two days.

Censorship

Remember

Getting offended by something is a choice

You can choose to be a white person and be offended by black slurs (words from iDubbbz lol)

However

You cannot censor someone and tell them they can’t say just cause YOU think it’s offensive

If we should censor EVERY WORD that at least 1 person would get offended by, almost all words in the dictionary would get censored. Do you know how idiotic that is?

Labeling someone as racist, sexist, ableist or anti-semitic because they simply said something is so discriminating, especially when all they want to do is make people laugh.

Something that is offensive TO YOU, is not offensive to everyone else, and it does not make you SMARTER to be offended by useless shit.

Infact, you would be smarter if you knew the fucking difference between a joke and fact.

I once got told off by this person for using the words ‘’psychopathic’’ and ‘’insane’’, as they started to make long rants on their tumblr basically making me look like a person that hates disabled people and thinks they are insane.

Literally, if I was ableist, I wouldn’t love my paralyzed little sister who has never been able to talk or walk or live a normal life cause she is permanently brain damaged. I love her with all my heart and always have and always will.

If I was racist for using slurs, I wouldn’t have a group of black friends and a asian boyfriend.

You cannot label a person as something unless you know them.

Just like how you CANNOT label Pewdiepie as anti-semitic for a joke. Literally, his JEWISH FRIEND H3H3 came out and said he is NOT a anti-semite, shouldn’t that say something in itself?

Literally, we live in a world where hypersensativity is accepted, and that’s not okay, censorship should NEVER be okay.

And also, people give children SO LITTLE CREDIT, people are making children look retarded in all honestly.

Cause they say that children ‘’cannot tell the difference between a joke and facts’’ but when I was a child, I KNEW THE DIFFERENCE

Just

STOP LABELING PEOPLE AND STOP CENSORING EVERYTHING, CAUSE YOU ARE NOT ‘’FIGHITING FOR EQUALITY’’, YOU ARE REMOVING FREEDOM AND CREATING MORE INEQUALITY.

the-winter-siblings  asked:

Wait, Where is Shiro and Keiths first date? (voltron Family)

[The Voltron Pre-Family] Shiro was lying awake looking at the ceiling of his bedroom. Oh my god. Keith is my boyfriend. Oh. My. God. He kept tossing and turning on his bed with that stupid grin on his face, heart beating so fast. Earlier that day, he finally confessed to Keith and it went better than expected. Well, Keith being ace was a surprise but he didn’t seem to mind because it even made more sense that Keith was. 

He looked at his phone and hovered his hand on top. He just said goodbye to Keith a while ago, he didn’t want to be clingy but…

[Takashi Shirogane] 09:55PM
Keith. :D

[Keith Kogane] 09:56PM
Yes?

[Takashi Shirogane] 09:57PM
Are you going to sleep now?

[Keith Kogane] 09:58PM
Nah. I’m watching anime online. Last ep though so I’ll be hitting the bed in a few minutes. Why? Can’t sleep? ;)

[Takashi Shirogane] 09:59PM
THE WINKY FACE WTF KEITH. THAT IS SO SUGGESTIVE. Anyway, I’m going to ignore that even though it’s the first time you’ve used an emoji. 

[Keith Kogane] 10:01PM
Iconic, I know. ;) Surely, you liked it.

[Takashi Shirogane] 10:02PM
I cannot believe you’re actually flirting with me via texts. What have you done to my best friend turned boyfriend?

[Takashi Shirogane] 10:05PM
Keith? You still there? 

[Keith Kogane] 10:20PM
Sorry. I actually don’t know how to make this whole boyfriend thing work. I literally have no previous experience whatsoever. Sorry if it came off as awkward. I admit, I don’t know what to do. I literally just stared at your message and went to resume my anime watching but I couldn’t concentrate to what on earth Motoko was saying because I didn’t know how to respond to you. Now I’m making things more awkward. You probably thought I was ignoring you or that I fell asleep, but really I’m just being… idk dumb?

Shiro just stared at Keith’s reply and he was smiling so wide because how can he possibly love Keith even more? He was just so… pure? So inexperienced and he was trying—trying for Shiro and he was so endeared. He appreciated the effort. Shiro bit his lip, stopping a really huge grin from appearing. 

[Takashi Shirogane] 10:23PM
Keith, you are literally made of cupcakes and rainbows. <3 Would you like to go out with me to an anime con this upcoming Saturday? My treat!

[Keith Kogane] 10:23PM
Keith Kogane just sold his body to Takashi Shirogane.

[Keith Kogane] 10:24PM
In case my awkward flirting didn’t work, that was a BIG FAT YES.

Shiro barked out a laugh that he even covered his mouth. They went together to the con that following Saturday and Shiro swore he’d never seen Keith so excited in his life. Shiro tried to be subtle with it but he kept on bumping his hand with Keith’s just to have a feel.

Keith: *stares at him* If you want to hold my hand just do it. 
Shiro: *taken aback* Uh…
Keith: *rolls his eyes fondly* *interlaces their hands together* Is this weird?
Shiro: *has a really big stupid grin on his face* *shakes his head* No. No it’s not weird. I’ve been wanting to do this for ages. *squeezes Keith’s hand*
Keith: You’re so dumb. *chuckles* C’mon. I have a list of what to buy. *takes out his phone* *moves closer to Shiro to show him* I was thinking of finally getting these figures. I hope they’re cheaper or something. If not…
Shiro: *wasn’t exactly listening* *is literally in front of Keith’s cheek* *softly gives Keith a gentle peck on the cheek*
Keith: *abruptly stops talking* *looks at Shiro pointedly* 
Shiro: *beaming like the friggin sun* I can’t believe I get to do that now. *chuckles* Like… I can do that now whenever I like. *panics and looks at Keith in worry* I mean… I could, right? Kiss you on the cheek whenever I want?
Keith: *flushes* *croaks* Uh… yeah. I g-guess. I mean… I-I think so? I don’t know. *deflates* *covers face* Fuck. I’m so flustered. What the hell, Shiro. What did you do to me?
Shiro: *laughs* *pulls Keith into a hug* Glad I’m not the only one.

They bought a few things and Keith only got two figures out of the 20 he had on the list because THEY WEREN’T ON SALE, SHIRO! They ate at a Japanese restaurant because they were missing home. Shiro took a photo of Keith eating a tempura while pretending to be texting and until this day Shiro had that photo. Keith had his hair in a ponytail because he didn’t want his hair to get in the way of his food and he was trying to blow the food because it was still too hot. They took photos with the giant Gundam and Shiro later on had the photo framed because he was such a sap with the label “Our First Date!” They went back to their dorms holding hands and they shared their second kiss that night.

[Keith Kogane] 10:30PM
It was pretty great hanging out with you today, Shiro. Thank you.

[Takashi Shirogane] 10:31PM
It was called a date, Keith lol

[Keith Kogane] 10:32PM
I knew that. ;)

[Takashi Shirogane] 10:33PM
THE WINKY FACE. 

i’m rewatching that scene when oswald sits on the couch with ed (the “i would do anything for you” scene) and i never noticed that oswald brings ed a little teacup before he sits down?????????? like this little peng literally went to the kitchen and made his best friend/crush some tea because he’s had a rough day… i cannot believe this… ☕️🐧
