they were so young *a*

My parents are 15 years apart, but they never had a mission together when they were young so pls can u not demonized age gap itself. It's cool to call out pedophilia but don't just demonized the age gap itself. I would appreciate that you don't drop that part of your argument everytime u go off on age gaps.

oh aw anon uh. if it makes u feel better my main concern IS that he was her teacher when she was 12? like if they legit met when she was 26 id find it questionable still but. not that bad.

if u want personal context - my father was 9 yrs older than my mother and ~25 yrs older than my stepmother and in both cases (esp the latter) i think its 😬 real weird. BUT my uncle, who would, date his former students (he was a high school teacher) is MUCH MUCH MUCH worse in my book. demon from hell. etc #pedophilia #csa

Confundo and Expecto Patronum? :)

Confundo : What confuses you most about the world? A whole lot of things. Mostly how people can be so cruel and uncaring and hurtful to each other. 

Expecto Patronum: What’s your happiest memory? This was hard to narrow down because I don’t really have one big memory that stands out, but rather a whole bunch of little ones that I hold very dear. But the first one that came to mind just now was of my grandmother when I saw her around Christmas back in… 2011, I think? I’m pretty sure it was 2011. She’d taught me to play the piano and so whenever I was around, she’d always ask me to play for her. But that time, she went digging through her stacks of sheet music instead and pulled out a duet version of Invitation to the Dance that we’d used to play together when I was young. And both of us were so out of practice with it that we kept messing up, and every time we messed up we would make ridiculous noises and eventually we were laughing so hard we could barely keep playing. She had the best laugh, she was the only person I’ve ever met who honest-to-god giggled and it was the most wonderful sound. I hadn’t thought of this in a very long time and now I’m smiling about it. Thanks, anon <3

i went to an ariana grande concert a few months ago. there were so many young girls (8, 9, 10 and 11 years old) there with their moms for their very first concert and you could feel the excitement in the air as they walked around the venue in their ariana shirts and accessories, dancing along to all of her songs.

the thought of someone planning a terrorist attack with the specific intention of targeting and killing not just women, but girls, absolutely shatters my heart.

Star Trek Character Ages

Over the past few days my sister and I have been doing very important research; we looked up the ages of all of the Star Trek characters. Quite possibly one of the most nerdy things I have spent my time doing, but, the results are quite interesting in some cases. So here you go tumblr.

*note: all of these ages were calculated using either birth years found on memory alpha or memory beta, so they may not be 100% correct, but I tried to be as accurate as possible.*

——At the start of their time on the series—–


Data-26 (based on activation date)
Beverley Crusher-40
Wesley Crusher-16

Dax (symbiont)- 351(born in 2018!!! Guys that is pretty soon)
Odo- 32 (based on date he was first found)
Quark- unknown (no recorded DOB)

The Doctor-0 (Activation date)
7 of 9-21 (however she spent time in a Borg maturation chamber)

Porthos-Unknown, but at least 2 years old

Go forth with the newfound knowledge you have gained! 

Vincent and Rachel

Yana made several posts about the characters’ ages on twitter today, but to me the most interesting information was this one about Vincent and Rachel:


“Because his wife was young, *papa [*Vincent] would make himself look younger.”

The keyword here is 若作り (”wakazukuri”), I’ll just quote the definition from the dictionary:

“the act of attempting to make oneself appear younger than one is by wearing youthful clothing and makeup“.

So apparently, Vincent was (much) older than Rachel that he felt the need to make himself look younger to keep up with his young wife (appearance-wise) xD


Some stuff about Jesse, Hanzo and their little baby daughter

They’re both really protective of her but Hanzo is just a bit more of a mother hen because he’s kinda overcompensating for failing Genji when they were young so he won’t let Any Harm Ever come to his child. He has trouble leaving her alone for all of five minutes in the first couple months and Jesse has to keep reminding him that he is also very much capable of taking care of their child

As for clothes, both of them are Very invested in dressing her but Jesse goes more for anything cute and Hanzo prefers chic baby clothing. And yes they did end up buying that onesie.
