there's no need to be ashamed

anonymous asked:

ok u must get this a lot but what are your favorite books with queer protags???


- Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith – teenage boy explores his bisexuality as he wrestles with his guilt over a) having feelings for both his best friend and his girlfriend and b) accidentally starting the apocalypse-by-giant-preying-mantis. (literally my favourite book.) 

- The Vintner’s Luck by Elizabeth Knox – grumpy vintner bumps into an angel one night when he’s pickled and wandering around the vineyard, and winds up making a date to meet once a year, on the same night, forever. you will probably cry yourself to sleep afterwards. 

- As Meat Loves Salt by Maria McCann – sociopathic romp through Civil War era England accompanied by THE WORLD’S SLOWEST BURN and MURDER. even if you’ve been an English Civil War nerd for 15 years before reading this book, this book will forever be the first thing you think of when you think of the English Civil War. a scourge. 

- Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters – cute girl leaves home and becomes a music hall male impersonator. lesbian shenanigans by the barrowful follow. set in Victorian London and actually has a happy ending! yay! 

- Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs – a memoir documenting Augusten Burroughs’ teenage years living with his mother’s psychiatrist and his madcap family. I took this in stride when I first read this book at the tender age of 14, but now it gives me PALPITATIONS and a BURNING URGE to ring Esther Rantzen. 

- Call Me By Your Name by Andrew Aciman – THE PEACH BOOK!

- The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller – I love this book so much I have to forcibly stop myself from buying a copy every time I see one in a secondhand bookshop. you go into it thinking you’ll be FINE because everyone KNOWS what happens to Patroclus, it’s not like you WON’T SEE IT COMING… and yet. no one is ever fine. 

- Maurice by E. M. Forster – astounding and wonderful book that was, surprisingly, written in 1912. there’s sex, it’s a happy ending, it has something very snotty to say about British attitudes towards homosexuality – it’s a joy. plus, the Merchant Ivory film version is full of totty. (yes, that’s Rupert Graves. you see him starkers. just saying.) 

- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz – two Latinx boys falling in love. I read the entire thing in one sitting. it’s won so many awards you can barely see the cover art. deserves all the accolades and love, as it is HEARTBREAKINGLY GORGEOUS.

- More Than This by Patrick Ness – there is absolutely no way to explain this book without spoiling everything about it, so here’s the bare bones: Seth drowns, and then wakes up, alive, but completely and utterly alone. I had to put it down and go for stress walks at least 3 times. so good. 

- The Charioteer by Mary Renault – a soldier wounded in the evacuation of Dunkirk recuperates in hospital and tries to choose between two dudes: a young and innocent conscientious objector and a saucy and experienced naval officer. can I get a HAIL MARY? 

I love how aphobes wanna say that aces and aros don’t face oppression, then turn around and exclude them from pride parades because they’re “not LGBT enough”

6qubed  asked:

the latest episode of a podcast I listen to, that is primarily about sex education, had both the host and the guest mentioning that they're wearing thin on the whole "sex positivity" thing precisely because of the sort of shit OJST pulls; they were even bandying around the term "sex enthusiastic" for people who didn't mind being tied up every so often, but at the same time were not trying to find out about Weird Dave's Oddly Specific Desire To Not Fuck His Wife And Connotations Thereof

i think some ppl are getting some srs fuckin wires crossed between “theres no need to be ashamed of sex” and “its completely normal and healthy for three men to piss into my mouth and i should b able to talk about it freely and openly without you kinkshaming me!!!”

like I know y'all still like me for some reason regardless of the fact that I’m fucking disgusting but how disowned would I be from this lil corner of the fandom if I uhhh wrote a sh*nce/sh*dge abo smut oneshot

anonymous asked:

if you are under 18 on tumblr there's literally no option to uncensor everything, so i'm kind of worried about all the young people who aren't straight/cis who need validation and stuff. if people are ashamed of who their are/don't accept themselves yet and then they go online to find out that people like them are being censored and considered inappropriate... i don't know i'm just worried that they might hate themselves more or just be negatively affected.

i’m worried too

anonymous asked:

I need help finding info about a German Sci-Fi pulp novel. Der Luftpirat (The Air Pirate and His Steerable Airship). Which was a series of 1900s pulps about Captain Mors, 'Air Pirate' and his adventures on his airship. He was allegedly a literary precursor to Captain Nemo. But many of his stories have been lost to time due to WW1 Censorship. I can't find anything, no mention on project Gutenberg, Wikipedia is barebones, there's allegedly an english translation but I haven't found anything. Help?

The first of the Captain Mors books, translated into English, is available at this website for reading. 

I don’t have your location information, so I can’t use this tool for you. But if you ever need to find a physical copy of a book, you can search almost all libraries simultaneously with WorldCat, at and it will bring out results for libraries close to you.

I am not ashamed to admit this: I love old school adventure and literary characters, but Captain Mors was one of three times in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen where I was absolutely thrown off guard. I’d never heard of him and I had to look him up.

My sister is playing McCree right now.

- she started her dead-eye but there was no one around so I said “this is a sucky place to ult” the she yells “BUT WAIT THERES MORE” and turned a bit to the side where two more people were. She got a triple kill. I am ashamed.

- she got POTG for a desperate dead eye (4 kills) then when her card showed up she yelled “VITE FOR ME PLEASE I NEED THE ATTENTION”

So basically, we are all my sister.

I clear my history regularly bc it takes up memory and I want to free it up lmao there are countless reasons why someone would delete their history 

ihatejayr replied to your post “healthbyholly is a fucking murder-android im calling it now ”

“there’s nothing wrong with being naked and exposing all your soft meat parts! nobody can tell you not to have your organs harvested!”

health by holly, ripping my kidneys out of my body: stop being ashamed and policing people with exposed innards. theres no reason people need to have skin. you should be able to let people take your kidneys out wherever in public. no part of the body is dirty. its all valuable

Galra keith and lance

In case yall hadnt noticed i am a HUGE fan of galra keith and lance??? And i think the main reason i enjoy that head canon so much is that i just… love the idea of keith having issues becoming comfortable with his new body and lance being there for him through that. Just like…

Keith feeling like hes an unloveable monster and lance proving him wrong at every turn, and making him feel safe and at home, and telling him he doesnt need to be ashamed because theres nothing to be ashamed of, and letting him know he supports and loves him and being galra doesnt change that. And keith not knowing what to do with all of this affection and support but being so utterly relieved to have it, and slowly regaining confidence in himself and in his identity.

Thats my jam guys lol. Just let my precious boys love and support each other xD

anonymous asked:

tbh he kinda deserves it lmfao he punched and stole things from people

yeah those are terrible things to do;; but also consider the fact that he wss in middle school and made stupid, stupid decisions. im not trying to discredit that bullying is a terrible thing to do what im tryna say is that i think people can change? like bully da bastard who decided his stage name based on how he was terribly bullied in school, considers young b like a mom because he was so caring to him and pulled him into the dickids crew. thats probably saying a lot from someone who was bullied himself to the point where he needed it to be a part of his stage name, his identity. so i guess what im saying is that yes young b should be very ashamed for what he did. there should be no excuse for the terrible thinngs he did. at the same time theres no point to irrationally and constantly hate on him now especially since he has changed. its your own personal choice to not be his fan based on what his past was but its another thing to go on his social media and cuss him out 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ this is how i view it

please put your lips on mine and shut me up

anon 1 ”Can you write a Collage AU where Will and Nico are roommates? That would be awesome! I love you and your fics!

anon 2 “Can you write an Au?”

of course! thanks for the prompt. sorry that this is kinda angsty whoops. (if you want me to write something, my ask is open!)

title from talk to much by coin.

please put your lips on mine and shut me up

“Wait. It says i’m not rooming with you.” Cecil pursed his lips as he looked at the rooming arrangement. “It says I’m with some guy named Leo Valdez. What the fuck?”

I looked over at my best friend and then down at my rooming arrangement paper. It listed my dorm number and where on campus it was, and who I was rooming with. “I’m with some guy named Nico.” I told Cecil, sighing. “I made sure that I requested to room with you.”

“Hey, at least I’m near you. Now I won’t have to deal with anyone you hook up with.”

I groaned, “I’m here to be a doctor. Not to ‘hook-up’.”

Cecil winked at me before turning to go to his room. “Never say never.”


I placed my key in the door to my room, and stepped inside. The dorm was everything I had expected. It was small, ugly, and smelled like mold. I had a vague memory of NYU’s website claiming that the school had state of the art dorms. Liars.

I plopped my bag down on the bed on the left side of the room, and looked over at the other bed. It had already been made up. There was a light gray blanket messily thrown on the bed, and a few rumpled pillows. A computer was plugged in on the desk. That was all. My roommate must be a minimalist or just gave no shits, I decided.

I set up my stuff in a good half hour and left the room to explore the school. When I got back, the other side of the dorm was still empty. I wondered where my roommate could possibly be.

Nico Di Angelo.

It was a nice name, one that I struggled to believe was real. I had studied latin and knew that roots of the words. His name roughly meant the angel of victory If I mixed its greek and italian roots. It seemed like a fictional name, one that the hero would have in action movie.

I wondered when I would get to meet him.

I got my answer at 12 am, when the door clambered open loudly. A dark figure fumbled in, and I woke up with a start. I clicked the light on, and I suddenly realized why this boy had been given such an angelic name.

He was short and lean, and his hair was messy but fell in a way that framed his face perfectly. He was dressed in all dark tones, and a multitude of bracelets traveled up his pale skin. His eyes were dark like chocolate and-bloodshot?

Nico Di Angelo was very drunk.

He looked at me, gave a slight nod, and passed out on the bed.

The next morning he was gone.


The cycle repeated for a good month, but when the classes began to speed up in October I began to see Nico more.

He confessed to me that he didn’t really know what to study, but his dad had forced him to come to school. Also, his father was the Hades Di Angelo. The millionaire car salesmen. He would call Nico a lot, and those calls would typically end in shouting, and Nico storming out of the room. My roomate would come back the next morning, hungover and cranky.  

On one particular afternoon I walked into the dorm ready to study, and heard Nico yelling at his father through the phone. The responses were so loud that I could hear every word.  I lingered in the doorway, trying not to intrude, but it proved impossible.

“You failed that test Nico!” A loud voice shouted.

“Its not like I care, Dad!” Nico scoffed, “You’re the one making me go to this school in the first place.”

“Bianca would’ve cared.”

Nico’s shoulders tensed, “Don’t bring Bianca into this.” His voice was cold.

“Sometimes I wish you were gone instead of Bianca.” Nico’s father started, “She cared and wasn’t a faggot like you-”

Nico threw the cell phone across the room, its glass screen shattering into a million pieces. He got up, and began to walk to the door, bumping into me.

“Where do you think you’re going?” I asked him, blocking the door.

He rolled his glossy eyes, “None of your business, Solace.”

I knew that we were never really that close, but Nico looked so small and helpless that I couldn’t just stand by and let him drown his feelings in beer. Also, his father was a piece of shit. Point blank. “It is my business if you are going to go out and get shit-faced. That clearly was a rough phone call and you need to-”

Nico’s dark eyes widened, almost resembling a deer in headlights. He shrank back. “What did you hear? Please don’t tell anyone! Please Will I-”

I went in to hug him then remembered that Nico never let anyone touch him. “Theres nothing to be ashamed of, but I won’t tell anyone. Thats what friends are for, and as your friend I’m going to make sure you calm yourself down without getting drunk.”

Nico’s eyes cast downwards. “You’re not my friend.”

“I am.”

“No you’re not.”

“Your are staying this room.”

“Make me.”

These words triggered some primitive urge in me, making me grab the collar of Nico’s ripped Pearl Jam t-shirt, push him against the wall, and shove my lips against his. It wasn’t slow or romantic but there was contact, and thats all that really mattered. Nico didn’t resist, he just reacted to my motions.

His big brown eyes were wide open, as if he was pleading me to do something more. I slid my tongue into his mouth and his eyes fluttered shut. All I wanted to to was erase the pain that was in his voice, make him forget his terrible father for just a moment. Also, it wasn’t as if I hadn’t thought about this moment a million times before.

After what seemed like forever, I finally pulled away, us both gasping for breath. “This better than going to a bar?” I asked, quirking an eyebrow.

“Much.” Nico said as he leaned in and kissed me again.


sorry this is shitty and rushed.

Break up- he tries to look as conceded as possible, but he can’t lie that he’s a little happy.

Loves someone- keeps an eye out for who ever it could be, theres no way just anyone is getting close to you.

Loves them- well now he is over the moon! 


Break up- instantly hates the guy that did this to you, his own feelings are second to yours

Loves someone- keeps an eye on you, he can’t deny you do seem a lot happier

Loves them- suddenly over whelmed with happiness, it didn’t even cross his mind it could be him


Break up- ready to beat someone up! basically gets angry for you 

Loves someone- What?! NO! he lost his chance! he wishes he made his move a little quicker

Loves them- just watch his smile grow! he sighs in relief, its the best day ever.


Break up- clearly very consered about you, hoping there was something he could do for you, but puts himself in place, making sure not to over step his boundaries 

Loves someone- doesn’t say much other than the standard best wishes, he’s a little curious to who, but he doesn’t want to come off as jealous

Loves them- too many emotions he can’t deal. happy that its him, shocked that he didn’t see it earlier, surprised that you kept it secret for so long.


Break up- would be there to give you all the advise you need, and cry on his shoulder.

Loves someone- but who’s shoulder does he have now… clearly frustrated at the situation

Loves them- well… he didn’t see this coming, he’s so happy, but damn, he has no time to react.


Break up- not ashamed to tell you what he really thought of the guy.

Loves someone- after all he did for you, he feels second best all over again.

Loves them- so happy the dork inside is revealed! he can’t stop smiling for days!


Break up- never stops you from talking when your emotional, just listens and patently waits his turn.

Loves someone- but theres only so much he can wait, but he can’t let go of you  either.

Loves them- seems like he doesn’t need to, and he’s so happy he gets shy, he knows his hyungs will tear him down about it late, but he doesn’t care!

Gifs are not my own
