Hello! Please, I love good pining stories. I especially love it when it's Viktor who does it, too. Could you please recommend deliciously painful pining stories but with good endings? :)

Thanks for the requests! Mutual pining fics are my some of my favourites! Here is a TON of mutual pining fics because why not? They’re amazing!

Mutual Pining


Break the Cycle by SigmundFreud, Explicit, 26k
College AU where ex boyfriends Yuuri and Victor can’t stay away from each other. LOTS of mutual pining, arguments, miscommunication, and, of course, angst. Thumbs up!

a certain playboy by fan_nerd, Gen, 3.9k
There’s no way that Victor, Yuuri’s childhood idol, could be calling Yuuri a handsome playboy, just because they’d met eyes at two skating events. Besides, a total stranger had given Yuuri the tickets. It would be totally absurd. Love!

On My Love by RikoJasmine, Teen, 48k (WIP)
Time travel AU where Yuuri and Victor are happy aged and married, but an accident occurs and suddenly Yuuri wakes up back in Detroit, in a time before he had even met Victor. Angst and pining ensues. Great fic!

lie to make me like you by cityboys, Mature, 80k
It’s become a game, of sorts, to anyone privy to the fact that the pattern exists in the first place: ask Victor out at the beginning of the month, date for however many days, and wait for the end to come and for Victor to say, always: I couldn’t fall in love with you. Let’s break up. OMG so good!

On Cruelty and Confusion by Torchlite, Teen, 6.8k (WIP)
The timers show three sets of numbers: the wearer’s heart rate, their soulmate’s heart rate, and the number of heartbeats until they see each other in person. Viktor’s timer goes off the moment he lays eyes on Yuuri. Yuuri’s does not. Great soulmate timer AU!

Kingdoms of the Sun and Moon by OathKeeper, Explicit, 12k (WIP)

Lessons in Love by fangirlandiknowit, Mature, 21k (WIP)
All Viktor wants is for his son to be happy - and if that means spending countless hours at the ice rink, a million more in the ballet studio, and devotedly cheering for Katsuki Yuuri at every competition he enters, then that is precisely what he’ll do. LOVE!

Everything on Fire by SakanatoAi, Teen, 28k (WIP)
In an alternate universe where the physical closeness between two soulmates is measured by body temperature, Yuuri Katsuki and Victor Nikiforov have spent their entire lives chasing after fleeting moments of warmth. Awesome soulmate AU!

centripetal force by braveten, Explicit, 60k (WIP)
Victor speaks seven languages. (Physics isn’t one of them.) Luckily, though, he ends up rooming with his antithesis: a shy, black-haired boy who just so happens to be a physics major. LOVE this!

what's the deal w chomsky

kindly old anarcho-liberal grandad, knows a lot about american foreign policy and writes informative books about it. Advocates voting for left wing candidates and has been officially excommunicated from anarchism for it - doesn’t seem bothered. An easy target for anarchists but not for democrats or republicans who find it impossible to debate him - Can’t win an argument with Michel Foucault but can win every other argument due to encyclopaedic knowledge and cold, patient logic. Hated Zizek before it was cool. Revolutionised linguistics but no one cares any more.

Apparently the US just has to accept fascism because hey, if you ban it, it's not a democracy anymore. I find this amusing, because I live in a country where fascism is indeed banned, and yet we have more diverse political representation (with more political parties).

This is the “why can’t you be more tolerant of my intolerance” level argument that we’re fighting against.

Pain of the Past

Pairing: Dean x Reader

Request: Hiya! Can you do a Reader x dean where they get into an argument and he throws up his arms/steps forward or something and Reader flinches as if she thought he would hit her and it breaks his heart?

Warnings: Some language, mentions of a past abusive relationship, angst, and some fluff.

Word Count: 914

A/N: Well I gave this my best shot so I hope you like this!!!

You glared at Dean. This was the third time he had tried to stop you from going on a hunt and you’d had it. “And what gives you any right to say what I can or can’t do?” You snapped back.

“I’m not saying you can’t go, I’m just saying we don’t need you.” Dean ran his hands through his hair in frustration.

“Oh really? Because the last time you said that you came home with a bullet in your shoulder and Sam had a sprained wrist!” Dean had been trying this new method of saying he didn’t need you in hopes that you would believe him, but it was complete bullshit.

anonymous asked:

Can i request different reasons why a couple may get into an argument? I'm writing something where the two of them are normally respectful of each other and normally get along, but ine day smth happens and they get into a really bad argument.

//Assuming you wanted some suggestions, here you go;

  • Something built up and finally got released.
    • Such as “I’ve told you to stop putting your dirty laundry next to the hamper” or “Taking out the trash is the only thing you have to do around here and yet you still don’t do it!”

  • A life-changing decision was made alone, when it was something they were supposed to talk about together.

  • One of them brought a stray animal into the house.

  • A misunderstanding- maybe one of them worded something wrong? 

  • Distance. One feels unwanted, because the other works too much, etc.

  • A bad day at work gone wrong; they bring their stress home and the other isn’t as sympathetic as they could be?

  • Keeping secrets and one finds out? 

  • Taking out guilt on the other person. 
    • Say Person A did something wrong and instead of admitting what they did wrong, they take it out on B.

  • Fighting over money and the thought of wasting said money. 

  • A fight over friends. Couples fight over friends a lot, especially if there’s jealousy or their friend is getting a little too “friendly”. (Don’t recommend going down the possessive route; people are allowed to have friends outside relationships).

  • A fight over not being as communicative as they thought. 
    • Person A expects Person B to read their mind, despite that being (probably) impossible about what’s wrong.

  • Insecurities, such as moving in together, or getting engaged, etc.

  • Couples fight about holidays, too. Such as if they’re visiting families or if one is getting too eager about said holidays than the other.

  • Bringing up past arguments that were meant to be left in the dust.

  • Feeling like one never gets to do something they want to do, because B doesn’t want to do what A wants to do.

  • One of them feeling like they always have to do everything around the house, from shopping to cleaning to cooking. 

  • Not having a job or working too much. Other career related arguments, like switching careers, working too far away, etc.

I hope this helps!

Antis can’t form a single solid opinion. Literally all of their arguments are reactionary. If Reylo shippers are praising something that’s really progressive, antis will make it so that thing suddenly isn’t progressive anymore.

cool guys i wanted to give you a heads up that yall know me. you know i have no part in callout culture unless its SUPER extreme circumstances. yall know i dont like pulling that kind of shit. but theres this little bloodsucker whos been pulling the most obvious manipulative shit to keep reeling my boyfriends into a place they can harass them with their hands tied on giving any kind of defense argument and im done! im DONE! with it. 

so if yall hear some drama stirring up, hear some sniveling little fuck crying about how big and bad i am or dj is or dave is, please hear me the fuck out and dont.

dont talk to them, dont interact with them, dont give them the time of day.

because i dont want that kind of leech to dig its nasty little talons into you too okay. please trust me on this my guys. steer clear of it. for your own good and ours.

stay safe out there guys and remember its ALWAYS the right answer to cut off someone whos nothing but awful and toxic to you. 

anonymous asked:

Hi, I'm going to keep this short and polite. I disagree with your opinion; I believe that trans women should be treated as women, and don't see any valid reasons why they shouldn't be treated as such. Can you please give valid reasons behind your argument? And by valid reasons, I mean reasons other than a few lesbians who are going to not date said trans women because they don't like dick.

Thanks for the question, anon. Since I’m going to outline my full thinking on this matter, it might be a little long, so please bear with me.

There’s no historical basis for gender being an innate identity that you can identify into, but an understanding of the broad-strokes of human history does support the fact that gender is wholly based on sex. This is empirically true (and no, GNC people in history don’t prove it otherwise). 

Allow me to give you a VERY abbreviated version of the history of gender roles. Anyone who’s taken high school world history knows in the paleolithic era, people were hunters and gatherers, more specifically, men were hunters, women were gatherers. This was the natural result of males generally being tall, having longer limbs, and being able to accumulate more muscle mass than females. As humans began to settle on land, this natural division remained to an extend, with men rearing animals and women doing the farming

Housework and the maintenance of the farm remained dividing nearly equally among the family unit. However, as economic class divisions began to be created, upper class women lost a lot of the chance to work, since they were rich enough to afford servants or slaves, the reason for a woman to go outside if she was upper class was limited. In the lower, “serf” classes, the division remained more even, though women traditionally were more home oriented, rearing children and taking care of the house. But since this work was vital for a subsistence economy (weaving, cleaning, cooking, etc), it wasn’t devalued as it is now. 

The shift in the view of “women’s work” occurred with industrialization and the shift to a monied economy. Men went out and worked, “earning the bread” whereas women remained in the home, and because they were unwaged, they didn’t seem like they were doing vital work anymore, and their dependence on men increased because they had no means of making money, at least in the upper and middle classes. (Take, for example, China. Footbinding actually only occurred to women in the upper and middle classes, because poor women were needed to work with their husband’s on farms etc.) 

However, even if women’s work was devalued over time, their assumed reproductive capacity was never viewed as anything but vital, which is why even pre-Christian societies criminalized abortion and adultery for women. Large populations equal fodder for armies and later the industrial revolution, something men needed to control and did so via making women dependent and using religion to justify their supremacy over them. That’s why thing like corsets and footbinding and hijabs were invented, to keep women docile and dependent on men by literally controlling their bodies.

You might be thinking, ok, but this is 2017, not 1800. True, but the legacy of male supremacy is still ingrained in our society, and it informs how we’re socialized based on our sex. You don’t get to opt out of your role as being part of an oppressor class and someone who is socialized to think women inferior by deciding you “feel like a woman.” Womanhood isn’t a feeling, it is something imposed on females from birth to control their assumed reproductive capacity (just think of how many countries where abortion and birth control are either illegal or hard to come by). 

All of which is to say gender isn’t an identity, it’s a biological reality based on sex. It doesn’t mean I don’t think that trans women shouldn’t be able to live as they choose because they’re male, by all means. But I do think the maintenance of female only spaces is important in recognition of what males still do to women until this day, with the interest of keeping women safe. 

Hope this helps, and as always, thank you for respect in my ask box. 

more than just ‘heal and punch’

honestly, I don’t even want to ask where this came from, because I already know. it’s amusing yet also quite interesting how bitter individuals will come up with the dumbest statements and arguments just so they can feel better about themselves and their faves and delude themselves into believing the user or fandom the stupid question was thrown at won’t come up with a logical answer.

besides, we all know, whatever you may answer, those people will try to deny it and protect themselves from the blow by throwing another stupid argument at you that makes no sense whatsoever.

first off, this idiotic rethoric that is used to downplay Sakura’s talent and feats as if a ninja’s worth depends on how many different jutsus and what not they can use, can be thrown at every single character in the manga.

what can Lee do besides kick and punch?
what can Guy do besides kick and punch?
what can Ino do aside from basic ninja kicks and punches and her special jutsu?
what can Hinata do aside from using her byakugan and blocking chakra points?

but back to Sakura. Let’s pretend she just heals and punches, and doesn’t actually have more qualities like her genjutsu skills, her knowledge of poison, her evasion, Katsuyu and more.

your biggest failure as someone who tries to analyze a character’s battle skill is that you only look at /how many/ feats a character has. and not at /how good/ said character is at using those feats. which is a common mistake bitter folks make when they’re about to explode with anger.

yeah Sakura heals. She healed Kankuro, Hinata, Naruto, Sasuke, Kakashi, Karin, Sjikamaru, an army….
without that, Naruto would have died. at latest after his battle with Sasuke. Who would have died right after if it wasn’t for Sakura stopping the bleeding. you think someone else could have done that? the people stuck in tsukuyomi? sure.
Hinata would have died, too. If not after her ‘fight’ with Pain, then at least after she tried to save Naruto in the movie.

to keep this post from getting too long, point is, Sakura did amazing and very important things for the plot with those feats that you keep trying to downplay.

my question is, what did your fav do with their limited feats? did they save the main multiple times, thus saving the manga from ending? did they save an entire army, thus stopping the villain from winning the war? did they save a part of a ship, thus saving it from becoming non canon? did they save their family from getting killed by a fugly sharingan clone?

mhm, I don’t think so.

tuafw your family doesn't like to admit arguments happen, so whenever one starts they cut it off with "I love you" and you have to say "I love you too" back which means you can't continue explaining yourself. and even worse, when arguments finally get to the point of you crying and melting down, they want to hug you!! no!!! i don't want to be hugged by the person who just made me so upset i cried!!!

When I first came out my parents were extremely unaccepting. Now, a year later, they've done tons and tons of research, and we may be going down to the courthouse today to get started on my name change! They're not that good at remembering names and pronouns, but because they're a lot less pissy about trans stuff, I can correct them without worrying about an argument breaking out. There's always a bit of hope, guys. I thought I'd never transition until 18, but I'm gonna be getting T soon. :)

That is amazing!! Congrats <33

I don’t know what it’s like to have a son. But I do know what it’s like to have a mother. And he should know that.

Don’t you even think about it. This is none of your business! I’ll handle it my own way.

I don’t like it when mommy and daddy fight, but can’t deny they look pretty doing it. This argument between Xena and Gabrielle in 2x01 is a proto-Rift, and the issues that divide them are the same as later: trust, honesty, what obligations a mother has to her child. 

Having watched two seasons of Clone Wars, it’s probably a bad sign that I can’t figure out what the war is actually over. I thought the Republic was basically Space UN–individual planets govern themselves and send representatives to an intermediary council. But here it’s like the British Empire. “Oh, you guys wanna leave? Too bad!” Imagine if, say, New Guinea decided to leave the UN, so they sent troops to occupy it to make it keep paying taxes (according to Wiki, that’s one of the stated reasons for the war). These are the good guys?

It’s probably a problem with the prequels as a whole, but the only moral argument I can find for the Republic is that a number of megacorporations such as the Trade Federation want to avoid paying taxes and obeying Republic oversight, so they’re leaving, and I suppose those in their power would be wage slaves. Still seems like kinda a weaksauce ‘evil’, especially when both sides are fine with droid slavery and the good guy Republic is literally breeding people to be soldiers (hey, Finn, do you hate being a child soldier? Well hey, relax, the First Order is just following in the fine tradition of the Old Republic! You know, as in ‘the Alliance to Restore the Republic’?).

anonymous asked:

Does Dragunov like to dance? Also, i can imagine that whenever he ends up in an argument it turns into a musical because he likes singing more than talking ^^

I can COMPLETELY see Sergei dancing! Oml, that would be adorable! I can just picture it now. :3 And the singing! Squeeeeeeeeee, ima write about it! Hopefully, you like it! 0w0

It was a boring day, to put it simply. Many of the Spetsnaz were left to sit around in silence, since there was no proper assignment for the day. The ones who were absent were the ones who were still on duty; sent to accomplish some other deeds that many were not left with.

You were a Spetsnaz yourself; and a damn good one at that. You worked hard, you took zero shit from anyone, and you were good enough to be on Dragunov’s good side (which was a feat that not many could accomplish).

On this particular day, you were fated with the task to deliver Sergei’s food rations, as he was never seen casually to obtain said rations himself. It was no big deal; you’d been tasked with this before, since you were basically the closest Spetsnaz to him, so you were willing to take the time from your day to help him out.

As you made your way down the hall, carrying the tray as close to your person as possible, you felt a sense of uneasiness crash over you as you heard a very unfamiliar sound. And by unfamiliar, I mean…… unnatural?

Was that…… music?

You shook your head in disbelief as you continued on your way towards your destination, yet the closer you got the louder the music was. It wasn’t anything obnoxious; it was actually rather soothing, and it was enough to make your uneasiness fade.

When you reached out to grab the knob to Sergei’s office, you didn’t entirely expect the sight that was in front of you. When you heard his voice that was in time with the music, you didn’t expect to be so surprised. When you saw him moving gracefully upon the floor, with each and every step more delicate than the last, well, actually, you weren’t expecting that.

It took him a little while to notice your presence, since you had made absolutely no indication that you had even entered the room, much less that you were merely standing and gawking at him. But when he did, BOY did it throw him off.

“(Y-Y/N)!” He exclaimed, yet you weren’t sure whether to be surprised by the fact that he was verbally speaking, or the fact that he was speaking in an almost sing song voice.

His acknowledgement of you actually startled you once you were actually in your proper state of mind, and you actually dropped his tray of food right onto the floor in front of him. The both of you had no idea what to do; you were amazed, and he was embarrassed. Enough said.

Fearing a demotion, you quickly apologized and attempted to clean up the mess, but your shaky hands made it nearly impossible for you to accomplish anything. As you tried for the fifth time to pick up the fork (why couldn’t the damn thing just STAY in your hand??), Dragunov’s boots made their usual thumping sound as he approached you.

‘Oh shit, I’m done for…..!’

Instead of the harsh scolding that you had mentally prepared yourself for, a gentle, yet firm gloved hand was placed onto your shoulder that forced you to look up at the man before you.

His expression was not nearly as stern as you expected; rather, it was still slightly embarrassed, yet still managed to project just how much he had calmed himself. He didn’t say anything, he just pat your shoulder comfortingly and indicated that you could leave and that he would clean the mess himself.

Without a moments hesitation, you turned swiftly on your heel after apologizing for what felt like the one hundredth time. As you eventually reached the door, you opened it and exited, closing it behind you once you were out.

Oh dear.

What did you get yourself into….?

AS MUCH AS I TRIED, IT STILL SUCKS. But, as it does come from the heart, you should still love me nonetheless. Right, Anon? :3 XD

Y’all seem to think that ‘Respect’ing other human beings means simply being nice to them, accepting their views, and excusing their actions. But…?

Respecting a person as a PERSON means that you’re acknowledging that they exist. That’s it. Speaking about them, as if they are real. That’s what it means to respect a person as a person. You can disagree and downright condemn a person’s beliefs while still acknowledging that they are a person. Because we, as people, are perfectly capable of doing terrible things and still being people. We’re capable of bad, just like we’re capable of good. The point of respecting a person as a PERSON is not accepting their views. It is not sympathizing with them. It is not giving them the benefit of the doubt. And it is not allowing them to continue to hurt you or your people without consequence. It is not excusing them. It is not surrender. 

Respecting a person is realizing that they are still a person saying these terrible things. Not excusing, forgiving, approving, or supporting these terrible things and ideas, but knowing that it was a human itself behind these actions. A person is not suddenly subhuman just because they have terrible ideologies. They’re still a person. Because people do and can have terrible, unforgivable beliefs. And do do unthinkable things. But respecting them as a person is not forgetting that they’re a human. You’re not fighting a monster (Though, a monster in this context would of course be the harmful ideals spread, and the stigma that it both caused and was generated from. Etc.) But you’re fighting another human being.

Now, this by no means should ever weaken your resolve to fight and rise against ideas, campaigns, people that seek to degrade you and oppress you and make “jokes” (can you tell that I literally do not support Felix worth a damn.) at the expense of your suffering. If anything, I feel as if viewing them as a person (read: not forgiving or excusing them. But acknowledging that they are a person.) can only strengthen your fight. The second you fight as if you’re fighting a human being, is the moment that people around you begin to understand why you’re fighting and gain the will to fight themselves. Because they’re humans too. 

People on this site are so quick to completely forget the humanity of the other people on this site over something as remedial as shipping Peridot with Lapis over Amethyst. Do not weaken your own arguments, your own voices, and your own points by dropping your voice as if it were to regard and speak to subhumans. 

Do not let the forces you fight drop your battle from your own hands. You hold it firmly, back straight, and presented at the human being that pushed you, and didn’t expect you to push back. Make them realize that they are not subhuman. Let them know that you, as a human being, are speaking to them, as a human being, on a battle field that they do not want to to be leveled and fair. Let them know that they are not subhuman, even if their beliefs are garbage. Let them know, they’re not lesser as people. 

But as a human being, their actions are unacceptable. And inhuman. Allow them the privilege to feel ashamed. Do not give them the idea that, as a ‘subhuman’, these actions are expected and allowed of them. Let them know that it’s wrong. Let them know.

And that you, as a human being, will not stand for it. 

Don’t excuse them. But see them for what they are.

Keep your vision clear, and your voice true. Know that you do not owe them kindness. But know the force that opposes you. 

Know them in a way that, in some cases, they will refuse to know you.

That’s how you win wars, my friends.

How to Turn off Negative Thoughts

1. Notice when you are slipping into negative, absolutist ways of thinking where you think the worst of yourself, your life and your future.

2. Recognise that these are habitual ways of thinking. It’s what you always think when you start to feel bad.

3. Be aware of triggers. Often certain people and situations trigger painful, negative self-destructive thoughts. Try and distance yourself from these, or completely avoid them, if you possibly can.

4. Deliberately look for the counter arguments. For example, when have things been a bit better, when have you done something right, when has someone been kind and understanding?

5. Visualise positive things that make you happy, such as curling up with a book in bed, listening to your favourite music, and so on. Often changing our thinking to things that make us happy changes our negative feelings and thoughts.

6. Get into the habit of building yourself up, so you notice and affirm your successes, strengths, good intentions and positive traits.
