Your story about Betty having a baby with Jughead but him not knowing is so good! I love the plot, if your up for it could you please write a part 5?!?

Okay! Thankyou!
***

Hunter padded through the upstairs apartment, his little feet making faint thumping sounds as he rounded the corner, running directly into Jughead who was cleaning off the living room table.

“Woah there, you got changed pretty fast. Are you some kind of superhero?” He raised a brow, bending down to the tiny toddlers level.

Hunter smiled wide and excited
“Superman. Mamma calls me super man!” He explained.

Jughead glanced up at the blonde in question as she leaned against the doorframe, a pair of child’s sized socks and a stuffed dog in her hands, she smiled at the two boys.

“Oh really?” Jughead questioned “well I’ve been told superman can fly? Do you want to try it out?”

The dark haired boys eyes grew wide with excitement and he looked to his mother for approval, something Jughead took note of. When Betty nodded and nudged her head, hunter clapped
“Yes please!”

Jughead picked up his son and lifted him in the air, putting him on his shoulders and running around the apartment as hunter squealed happily and clutched his father by the neck. After a few minutes Betty stepped into the room, her eyes shining with something Jughead couldn’t quite place.

“Alright my little airplane, it’s time for bed. I know hotdog sure is tired.” She held out the little white stuffed sheepdog, it looked eerily familiar to Jugheads childhood pet and it just so happened his pets name was hotdog as well.

“Okay mama.” The tired little boy agreed jovially, he was so simple, so obedient. He couldn’t help but stare in awe as Betty took him from his arms, she had raised him right.

The tiny makeshift family made their way to the light blue bedroom and Betty placed her son onto the soft grey sheets.
“Alright what’ll we have tonight?”

Hunter looked up,
“Jughead reads to me?” He asked, pulling an old soft cover edition of curious George out from under his pillow and holding it out to Jughead.

Jugheads eyes went wide and he glanced over at Betty, it was his turn to ask for permission. Betty’s eyes were surprisingly soft.
“Sure bug. Ya know Jughead used to read to me all the time. I remember him being pretty good.” She settled beside her sleepy son and Hunter patted the open space beside him.

“Cuddle. We have to” he explained in an almost bored tone. Apparently this was not up for discussion, not that Jughead was complaining.. at all.

Jughead began reading the book and smiled when both Betty and Hunter giggled at the best parts, almost near the end he felt a soft hand clutch his forearm, he looked up to see Betty with a finger on her lips as she glanced down at the now sleeping toddler.

They both slowly pulled themselves off the bed as Betty dropped a kiss to Hunters forehead and Jughead stared down, cautiously brushing a strand of dark black hair off of his sons face. When the door closed, Jughead slumped against it, he hadn’t realized how much love he felt for the little boy but after that.. it was a lot to take in.

“I’ll meet you in the kitchen.” She smiled reassuringly, she always knew when to give him space, Now was one of those times and he watched her walk from the hall.

His son was amazing, he was smart and kind and beautiful. He had missed so much of his life but there was still time, he could still show him what it meant to have a father, someone who loved him endlessly. And then there was Betty, she was so strong to do this all on her own, and then to let Jughead back into their lives, just like that. Not to mention she ran her own business as a single mother. She was amazing, she always had been. He wasn’t losing this, he couldn’t lose his family. It was something he never thought he could have, growing up his family had been in pieces, they were separated and he was always torn between two halves, he saw firsthand the way it destroyed his mother, he would never let that happen to Betty, not on his watch.

He moved into the kitchen and smiled when he saw Betty resting against the counter, two beers in her hand. She smiled when she saw him, holding out the cold beverage and taking a sip from her own.

“So daddy? How’s it feel?” She wasn’t being sarcastic or nasty, she was genuinely curious, if not a little nervous.

Jughead smiled dreamily
“He’s great, he’s so bright and well behaved. You’ve done such a good job Bets, I never thought.. I just… he’s such a good kid ya know? And he’s half me.” He shook his head disbelievingly and Betty laughed, taking him by the hand and leading him to the couch.

“I know, it still amazes me everyday. I’ve never regret a day of my life ever since I had him. He’s made me whole, given me something to live for. The first half of my pregnancy was … rough.” She explained, taking in his guilty eyes.
“It’s not your fault Juggie, it takes two to tango. I just thought… I didn’t know why you had left and my dad.. well let’s just say he didn’t want to have another daughter disgrace him, he told me a few times I would be better off dead.. and after hearing that so much, you start to believe it.”

Jughead fists clenched the arms of the dark brown couch, he wanted to kill Hal Cooper, he was a miserable excuse for a man. He prayed to god that man never crossed his path, sure he had grown but there would always be Southside in him, something popped in his head

“What about my dad.. does my dad know?” Jughead asked.

Betty shook her head and looked away.
“I went to see him, a few times actually but he wouldn’t let me in, I wrote letters and camped outside the trailer. I just wanted him to know.. but.. he wouldn’t let me in.”

Jughead bit back his growl, good old dad.

“You’re not him Jughead.”

He looked up surprised, even after all these years she could still read his thoughts.

“How do you know?” He asked desperately “I’ve never been a father, I don’t have the best example to look up too, how do you know I’m not just like him?”

Betty turned her body towards his on the couch
“Because then it would be okay to say that I’m my mother, I’ve proved myself as a parent so far, it’s your turn now.” Her hand raised to cup his cheek.
He closed his eyes, taking in the soft fingers he had always loved, the feeling of her touching his skin sent lightning shocks through his entire body and before he had a chance to speak a word her lips were on his.

After the immediate shock wore off, he devoured her, pulling her onto his lap, his hands hungrily touching every part of her body, he couldn’t get enough, he couldn’t get close enough. She was a drug, heavy and addictive but she was also rehab and without her he would fade away. He had her slammed against the kitchen cabinets in seconds flat, her lips came to his ear and she whispered

“Take me to bed Juggie.”

That.. well that he could do.

Some pre-expansion thoughts + “celebratory pre-stormblood”meme created out of spontaneous boredom.

I’ve been playing FFXIV since launch and I’ve made a lot of great friends along the way. I’m absolutely looking forward to the new Stormblood expansion with all the fresh new adventures and friends to be had along the way.

We’re almost in June! So it’ll be here before you know it, I wanted to give all my love to my friends and followers who’ve enjoyed my content that I’ve created since I popped up around 2 years ago. I was really on the fence about creating one, but with a little push from @tsubi-uru, here I am.

And it’s one of the best things I could have done, because the core friends I met through tumblr, we can’t stop annoying each other and it’s great.

(There are so many of you, but you know who you are.)

I love you all, and thanks for giving me reblog fuel when I couldn’t make something. There are so many talented people in this community and it’s always a treat to see on my dash.

THAT BEING SAID… I wanna start something! Just like I did when HW was coming out, I would like to see people do what I just did, make your own compilation photoset post of past screenshots showing how much your character has changed!

(Especially you fantasia users.)

Come on, it’ll be fun!

anonymous asked:

Its not just that Crowley is dead, its that now all chances of him ever getting an ally or being apprecieted for anything hes done are dead too. Now he'll never get a chance to get treated better :'(

The writers literally had EVERY chance to give Crowley more credit. They had every opportunity to give him his own episode, and a proper character arc, and do justice to his character. They had every single chance to do all of those things and the fact that they repeatedly made him the butt of the joke just meant that they never had any plans for him other than to use him like a dirty cloth.

It just makes me so mad to think that they actively knew he was a cared for character and they still grabbed him by the hair and dug him through the dirt.

Crowley could have done so much to this show to make it watchable lmao. He could have been their token unhindged character; there was no need for more lucifer. Abaddon and him could have been fighting tooth and nail and it would have been more interesting than watching him squabble pathetically. It wasnt funny, it wasnt even very good writing.

You know what they could have done? They could have had Crowley as a real enemy who the winchesters have both fear/respect for and dearly wanted dead. They could have kept Crowley on that really good point they began with as having him as King of the Crossroads. If they kept up this persona with him, spn would have been a million times better but instead they have queerbaiting and useless killing of characters that left you feeling annoyed than actually having an impact it would have had otherwise.

Not to go off, and I agree with you 100%, they lost so much opportunity just to focus on doing the same overused tropes for the brothers and it’s boring.

Wish I was kidding saying that bellarke owns me. The show could do us so dirty but I’d have hope until the very end and I hate that the writers can use me like that. But honestly bellarke has changed me in general. That sounds so deep but I idoled Clarke so much in the beginning and my personality changed a lot because I wanted to be like her and make decisions and be a leader towards everyone. And bellarke just shows me what I would want in a relationship. Someone who’s understanding and supportive of my decisions and who I am as a person but also someone who would balance me out too

anonymous asked:

when do you think ill have to stop cosplaying homestuck because its old

never if you dont want to, if you do want to then stop whenever you want

the age of something or how “in” it is doesnt mean you have to stop enjoying it. 

i dont care if homestuck is Super Mega Popular anymore or is 7 years old, if you like it, you like it. and if it makes you happy you should feel free to cosplay it. your interests are your own despite these factors, you could be 80 years in the future, showing up to a futuristic animecon dressed as callie ohpeee, and even if none of the people there know who this batshit old person is supposed to be it doesnt matter, what matters is that you feel happy. 

homestuck may not be whats “cool” to like right now– because thats always changing, this month its that new cartoon villainous, last year it was steven universe, both of these are great but fads come and go, but if you enjoy it, fad or otherwise, youre free to enjoy it as long as you want. 

so keep cosplaying until YOU dont want to anymore, not because its not whats popular. 

anonymous asked:

have you seen villainous or khonjin house?

I have seen Villainous before and I think it’s a really interesting show. I hope that Cartoon Network lets it get its own series but, if not the shorts themselves are great on their own and its amusing imagining a group of villains attempting to create villain advertisements. The style and animation of the series is just great too, they really utilize the puppet rigs they have to spend some quality time on the animation when they need too. Also all the G/t potential is right there given how they literally brought up a shrink ray that ends up growing a character in the second short.

Also I never heard of Khonjin House until today and I literally binge watched the entire series with Middy a few minutes ago. So thank you for introducing me to the series and throwing me and them into meme hell Anon. I really appreciate it cuz this series is great so thank you again ;u;

dearest (you are the nearest to my heart)

READ ON AO3!

Summary: Any thought he had about Bill or Richie or any boy was permeated with the carrion-sweet voice of the wretched leper. He noticed Bill’s new shirt? The leper’s voice would rise from his mind to his ears, telling him that he could offer any number of things to Bill and he’d have a shot at getting his lips on any part of Bill he wanted, that the leper would show him, teach him, love him, in the way only a mother or teacher can. It was as if It had never left and lived on within Eddie’s head- and indeed it did. Eddie’s poor mind had adopted the leper as a suppressant figure of sorts, a kind of built-in slap on the wrist, reminding Eddie of what his own brain had decided would become of him should he become Actively Queer, which was different than Eddie’s case, which was Dormantly Queer. It gave him all the things Eddie swore he’d never do and reminded him that only FAGS did those, only GIRLYBOYS did that, only QUEERS liked them. And so Eddie unhappily trudged along, promising himself one thing- he could look at whatever boys he liked. But he was never to touch or speak of it aloud, and he would live his life as he was supposed to. Or at least, try to.

Dear mom, thank you. For being there every second of my childhood life. You took care of me when I couldn’t take care of myself. My tomorrow always starts with you. Your smile becomes a morning habit to me. Thank you for having patience with me when I didn’t want to eat the food you cooked just because it has vegetables or whenever I pretend sleeping at noontime. I’m sorry ifI love to play all day. Thank you for lending your arms whenever I cry at midnight, I always find solace in between them. Your voice melts my worrying, and it becomes a lullaby to me. Thank you for teaching me how to walk on my own, you showed me how a little sunshine could do wonders in this world. I have enjoyed my childhood life because of you.
Dear mom, thank you. For being my life’s greatest teacher. You have colored my days with your guidance, affection, care and attention. Thank you for teaching me how to write, count and read. Thank you for comforting me on my first day in school. For the provisions, I needed in life. I know, we are not rich, but you always make a way just to ensure I’d have a bright future. You prepared my better days, and I’d be forever grateful with that. Thank you for disciplining me the right way and teaching me how to become a better person.
Dear mom, thank you. For everything. For being my provider, teacher, friend, protector and my home. You will always have the biggest place in my heart. Thank you for teaching me how to become confident and independent. Thank you for always wiping my tears and calming all of my fears. Thank you for introducing our Lord God in my life. For all of the countless times, you were there to become a friend and become my shelter whenever there’s a storm. Thank you for caring me whenever I’m sick. For making me feel safe every time. Thank you for believing first in me and guiding me on every decision I make in life. I wouldn’t be here where I am in my life without you.
I know, these words will never be enough to thank you for every sacrifice you have done for me. But give me this moment to say this: Mom, I’m rapturously in love with you. I don’t say it as often, but I love you, and I will always be grateful to have you. My life is in the better place because of you. Your love is the reason why I’m strong, inspired and successful. Thank you for letting me walk on my journey. Don’t worry. I will always be your little child. I will always stay with you, through whatever and whenever.
I love you more than you’ll ever know. You are the greatest; you are my everything. And I will always see you in every wonderful experience that will happen to me.

Emma, when we met, there was just one thing that mattered to me, getting my revenge. And you did something that no one else ever could, you showed me that a heart full of love was the most precious treasure of all, and one that I don’t intend to lose. They say that a Captain’s heart belongs to his ship, and with this ring, it now belongs to you.

Killian, I spent so much of my life on my own and then Henry found me and brought me to Storybrooke and helped me find the rest of my family. But just because you learn you come from True Love, doesn’t mean you believe you’ll ever find it, but thanks to you, now I have.

Before everyone starts throwing Aqua under the bus...

Firstly, yes, she is a bratty asshat. But she’s a bratty asshat who’s just doing her job. Peridot was just a bratty asshot doing her job once upon a time.

Aqua only ever threatened Topaz and company with two things, and the first was …  her wand. And what was she gonna do with it?

Throw Topaz against the wall? Keep her stuck in midair? That wand is useful, but it’s not very powerful. It doesn’t seem to be anyway.

But something strikes me about her dialogue following Topaz’s attack.

“So .. a revolt, huh? And what do you plan to do after this? Go back to the Diamonds? My gem in your hand? I’m sure they’ll love that. You’ll be rewarded handsomely … by being separated. And shattered.”

Usually I would see this as Aqua just saving her own skin. But I think she was – at the same time – warning Topaz, because of what Topaz says after.

“What was I thinking?”

Topaz could be the type to feel first, think later. Aqua may know this, thus making it clear what would happen if she didn’t think this through.

And lastly, she points the gem destabilizer at Topaz, but shows no intent of using it.

Instead, she gives her the opportunity to unfuse herself.

“Look, just … unfuse ….. and we’ll never speak of this again.”

Something tells me a similar blue gem by the name of Holly Blue wouldn’t have hesitated to forcefully unfuse an unruly fusion. Something also tells me Aqua was Topaz’s bodyguard, not the other way around.

Either way, I think this is our first look into Aqua’s true character.

So I’ll leave you with a tidbit from a description about the meaning of Aquamarine gemstones.

‘Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go.’

thepersonalblogofsh  asked:

What do you think is the (symbolic) meaning behind having all the mains on the same place, trying to support sana (s4's main) in the clip today? :) x

you know what I didn’t even think about it until you mentioned it, so thank you so much for bringing this up!

wow, it’s kinda nostalgic isn’t it? 

like think about it, Eva, Noora and Isak have all been in the position Sana is in now. Alone, inside their own head afraid of what’s to come next (same tbh)

and now here they are sharing this moment with her. Could they be a reminder for us to show us how much they have grown and the ‘evolution’ of the mains?

or maybe….

okay so Sana has served as an important character in each of their seasons. she helped each main move along in their story in a different way. 

for example with Eva

Sana gave Eva the push she needed to finally confront Ingrid as well as all the feelings she has been repressing and torturing herself with from the beginning of this season. If it wasn’t for Sana we might not have gotten the most emotional heart to heart in this entire season. We wouldn’t have gotten Eva to finally let out all of her feelings as well as realising who she is and what means the most to her. She wouldn’t have gotten the push she needed to gain closure with Ingrid if it wasn’t for sana…and then of course she wouldn’t have caught Iben and learnt about Snakesak…so yeah Sana pushed Eva’s season along when she needed it. 

then Noora

Of course Sana and noora had that massive beautiful clip where she told Noora that it’s impossible to expect people to think like you do, but it is possible to try and understand them, and for them to understand you. This convo of course encouraged Noora to try to connect with William and talk to him…pushing her in the direction of Nico where the next part of her story began. Again you could say Sana pushed her story along…leading her to the next chapter of her journey and growth. 

Now angel Isak Mikki doesn’t have favourites I love my children equally

oh my gosh I loved this clip. I don’t know if Sana knew or not but she gave Isak exactly everything he needed to hear right in this moment of his story. She reassured him that he still means the same to her as he always has and that maybe his mum would feel the same way. she gave him the courage and the love he needed to tell his mum about Even. She made him feel less scared about how she would react and calm in knowing that she still sees him the same way herself. ahhh oh my god if it wasn’t for Sana I don’t know if Isak would have gotten the guts to tell his mother about his sexuality and that was one of the most important parts of his story. His mother accepting him and loving him when he needed it the most (hell he had been needing it since we met him) ahhh it was everything. and Sana helped him reach to that point where he could reach out to his mother. So again, she pushed and impacted his story…in the best way. 

So now why were all the mains here in this clip? 

Maybe they were here to remind us just how much Sana has been there for them. How much she has impacted their lives and had such a strong hand in moving their journeys of growth and development along. Because now Sana is the one withdrawing herself from everyone and believing that none of them see her as someone they can connect with because she is too different. She is beginning to take herself out of their world…to push them away. But they are here trying to remind us (and her but she can’t see it rn) that god dammit she is a part of their world. She’s not just a part of it but because of her their worlds have changed and grown. She has been there for all of them. They need her and they love her and they respect her. 

but Sana feels like no one does. 

someone needs to tell her just how important she is and why she is needed so much in their world…because their worlds are her world. <3 

They each had Sana to move their story along…but who does Sana have? maybe that’s what they are trying to show us by involving them all here. Who is her Sana? What happens when the friend who is always there for everyone, needs someone to be there for her and get her to talk and listen? 

lets find out ahhhh

anonymous asked:

Hi! I just wanted to apologize for any crazy fans who harassed you or any of the crew member for the trans marco theory thing. I don't exactly support the theory as well, since I find that 1 guy and 1 girl as protagonist creates a perfect balance that welcome both side of the gender and having 2 girls instead would favor more on the girl side of the demographics. But it's wrong to send hate to the crew or ANYONE over it for that matter. I hope you don't have a bad impression of our fandom :(

Hey! Thanks for writing in! Don’t worry, I don’t have a bad opinion of the fandom–in my experience, every fandom has its own brand of drama, and there are plenty of creators who have experienced much worse than I did. 

But I did want to say something on the middle section of your comment! So: it’s totally fine if you aren’t interested in the trans Marco theory and personally prefer shows with one male and one female protagonist. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions! But when you bring up this particular opinion in a conversation about female and LGBT representation, it makes it harder to have these kinds of conversations.

“Balance” sounds super great … in theory! If this show existed in a vacuum, then I would absolutely agree with you that equal gender representation is ideal. But it doesn’t. This show exists in our world, and our world has some pretty lame stuff in it. 

For instance, you mentioned that having two female protagonists would favor a female demographic. But here’s the thing: animated shows are functionally not ALLOWED to have a show with two female protagonists. Historically, networks have overwhelmingly favored shows with male protagonists because advertisers who support television networks have preferred to manufacture and market toys and products aimed at young boys.

Every once in a while, networks seek out shows with female protagonists–with the caveat that they be accompanied by a male costar. They don’t want to risk losing their “boys” demographic and, at the end of the day, that means that boys are valued more than girls. So when you see a show with a “balanced” show with a female lead and a male sidekick, remember that that “equal representation” is done to cater to male viewers and is usually mandatory. 

And then there’s the trans element.* Trans representation is exponentially rarer than female representation. If you are a trans kid growing up, you will have a very hard time finding your experienced reflected in the media you consume. And when the media you consume–and the culture that creates it–acts like you don’t exist, it’s easy to feel like you yourself don’t exist. That you don’t deserve respect. 

While we are seeing better representation of LGBT folks in media, we still have a long way to go. In the meantime, some people are taking matters into their own hands, either by creating their own stories or through fan theories. And that’s ultimately (to my understanding) what the trans marco people are doing: they see the potential for representation and make it their own. 

So when people post about the trans marco theory, hoping for representation that they badly need and deserve, it’s probably not a good time to jump in and talk about how having two female protagonists would make the show “unbalanced.” The WORLD is unbalanced. We gotta do something to tip the scales back in the right direction. 

And after all, if you wanted male representation, you could easily look to the supporting cast–or any number of animated shows that feature primarily if not exclusively male protagonists. There is really no shortage of them.

Again, I want to stress that if you like the one-boy-one-girl dynamic, that’s fine! But there’s a time and place for that opinion. 

*Disclaimer: I am not trans! And I don’t pretend to speak for trans people. Please feel free to correct or add onto this. 

After seeing this, I wondered if it could be done with toys similarly to how this screenshot was. This is as close as I got it. Please excuse my poor choice of picture location and the photo quality. This took way too long.

Can we just talk about how much Touka has grown as a person???

At the beginning of TG, she was so impulsive and seemed to not have too much value in her own life. 

After the death of Hinami’s mother what did she do? Went and tried to kill the investigators on her own. No back up. No one knowing where she was. Coming back beat up. Only really considering things once Kaneki showed more interest in her being alive than she did. 

But now look at her, standing her ground and thinking things through. 

When shown the hand and told it was Yoriko’s hand, she didn’t lash out. Instead she stayed calm, acted as if she had no idea who Yoriko was, and focused on the fight at hand boo puns. She could have gotten angry and lost focus, which is probably what Mutsuki was hoping for, but she didn’t. 

Also acting as if she didn’t know who Yoriko was is so smart of her. Whether or not that is in fact her hand, Touka acting as if there is no connection between them will keep Yoriko safe and unconnected to the ghoul world. This is something she would have had to think of on the spot, in the middle of a life or death battle.

Touka could have also stayed and continued to fight Mutsuki but she took the first opportunity to get her and Kaneki to safety. Touka from the start of tg would have tried to fight her way out and feel like she running away was the wrong thing to do. 

She made a place for Kaneki to come home to, is ready to fight at his side, but also knows when to run away.

She has grown both smarter and stronger. I’m so proud of her.

Summary: Park Jimin had it all — good grades, a place as the soccer team’s captain and, more than that, the broken hearts of at least half the campus’ population. Though, one thing he did not have was someone willing to break his heart and, after you were dragged inside a miraculous plan to play that part, the last thing counted on was the preposterous idea that, perhaps, you could fall for him as well.

A/N: Can you believe that I managed to come up with a quick update? Me neither.

Monotone, drowning in tedium — that was how your first Monday class begun. Somewhere deep inside your mind, you could hear your teacher going on about an empty subject, filling the air inside the classroom with disconex sentences and incomprehensible claims; your own perception far beyond the yellowed walls of that room. Perhaps, sitting on the last row was not helping your lack of focus; but, much to your personal bliss, Jennie was right next to you, taking the notes you would make sure to use later.

In all honesty, your mind was in the same location as before: the party. Equivalent to what unfolded during the weekend, the story repeated itself amidst your tired daydreams; dragging your consciousness towards the bubbling, divergent feelings inside your chest. Unlike what you first expected, the anguish and guilt of your acts did not last longer than the ride back to your dorm, instead morphing into a sense of curiosity. After all, there were so many details that you waited to be presented with — the second step, the collateral damage it would have on your friendship and, more than anything, Jimin’s reaction.

You just did not expect it would come that instant.

The cloudy preoccupations of your chaotic thoughts dissipated as a light buzz sounded below you, your phone lighting up with a new notification. With a frown, you stared down at the illuminated screen, eyes falling to the white text.

The second you read it, your heart skipped a beat.

[10:22] Jimin: we need to talk
