Aries sighs: How can you deserve to be Inima when you betray me, Cadi? How?

Cadi falls to the tiled floor. Deep sobs wrack her body. She can barely speak. 

Betrayal. Betraying an Inima meant certain death. A painful, horrible, certain death.

Aries: Shhh. Don’t cry. 

Cadi desperate: I’d never betray you, Aries. Never! You know this. I owe you my LIFE. My LIFE. I’d never-

Aries takes a deep breath.

Aries: So, you truly don’t know what your friend is?

Cadi sobs: Shannon? Shannon is my stupid friend from high school! The girl who always made one bad choice after another. Her whole life has always been a wreck, a ruin. From the moment her parents disappeared and her uncle had to raise her and then she could never get anything right. And then he died and she was homeless… I thought she’d be a good gift.

Aries: A hard life certainly. She would have made a nice little gift for a newborn like Leo, who still feeds off hopelessness, despair. I’m different, though, Cadi. My tastes have matured. Now I can feed off any soul I desire, not just the hurt ones. Anyway, I sense your sincerity. I sense you don’t know what your friend is. I only wonder if something larger is at play.

Cadi: I don’t understand, Aries.

Aries: Your gift maybe a Trojan horse. But I don’t think you are the one behind it. Anyway, stop crying, my beauty. Get up.

Cadi softly: I’m- you’re not angry with me?

Aries: No. I’m not angry. But I don’t like mysteries. I despise them. And you’ve brought one to my door. For that, I’m displeased.

Cadi cries: Aries, no! Please. No!

Has anyone ever wondered how old Quirinus Quirrel was? HP wiki suggests he could have been as young as 20 in 1992, however, I find it rather… unrealistic. Before the story started, he had already taught for at least one year (although I suspect it was more than that), left for a sabbatical and then came back to teach again. I also find it hard to believe that Albus Dumbledore would think it’s a good idea to employ somebody who has just graduated from Hogwarts.

Then, there is also this:

Oh, he does,’ said Quirrell casually, ‘heavens, yes. He was at Hogwarts with your father, didn’t you know? They loathed each other. But he never wanted you dead. (PS, chapter 17).

I don’t think that Severus’ dislike/hatred for James is a knowledge common to the point where everyone knows about it, however, I can easily believe that it was a common knowledge to everyone who was at Hogwarts during the time when Severus and James were.

Taking this into consideration, I’m starting to think that Quirinus’ time at Hogwarts overlapped with Severus’. I find it hard to say if he was younger or older than Severus, but I kinda imagine him younger. 3 years perhaps?

“Morning Mom.”

“Good morning Dick,” you say hugging your oldest son as he sits on the couch next to you. You had been having a hard time since Jason died, Brice had thrown himself into his night job and Dick had moved back in to keep you company.

“How’r you doing?” He asks worried as ever about you.

You purse your lips, “How are you doing?”

“Mom.”

“I’m good, thanks for asking sweetie,” you say kissing his forehead when he presses you for an answer.

“Did Bruce talk to you last night?” He asks, using Bruce’s name because they still aren’t on the best of terms.

“No, why?” You ask, you and Bruce had been working through the grief you your own, and not talking to each other was apparently your way of working though it.

“Uh, you should talk to him,” Dick says.

“Do you know where he is?” You ask standing up.

“He’s down in the cave.”

—»—»—

“S-so y-y-you’re s-saying-g th-tha-t a thir-thir-thirteen,” you can’t continue because you’re laughing the hardest you have in months.

“Yes a thirteen year old figured out that I’m Batman and all my secrets,” Bruce says sounding broody, but secretly loving hearing your laughter again. You keep laughing and slump/lean against your husband, and he wraps his arms around your waist.

After a few minutes you the two of you hugging each other in silence you mumble into his chest, “I’ve missed you.”

“I missed you too,” he says into your hair.

—»—»—

“So this is the BatCave?!” You hear a new voice say behind you after the BatMobile turns off.

“Yes,” you hear Bruce say in his broody™ voice. You turn around in the chair you had been curled up in in front of the computer, and raise an eyebrow at the boy who had come with him.

Then the boy notices you, “Hello, Mrs.Wayne.”

“Hi,” you say waving awkwardly and looking between the boy and your husband.

—»—»—

“Tim?” You say walking up to stand next to the boy, your arm linked with Bruce’s.

“Hi Mrs.Wayne,” Tim says, and you sigh because he still wouldn’t call you (y/n).

“How are you doing?” You ask the boy, unlinking your arm from Bruce’s and putting your hand on Tim’s shoulder.

“Good.”

“Yah?” You ask then continue, “Bruce and I wanted to ask you something.”

“What is it?” Tim asks looking up at you.

“Would you like to move in with us?” You ask.

“Yah,” Tim says, “That would be nice,” he says turning around and hugging you.

Through the Lens

Part 6

“Who the fuck is Michael Hastings?” You asked, after finally making your way through the sea of flashes and invasive questions. “You have enough history with him that you know his name?”

The limo had blacked out windows and at least muffled the cries of ‘how long have you been dating’ and ‘how does it feel to be dating one of the most beautiful women in the world.’ JJ inhaled hard, her breath rattling in her chest. She combed her hands through her hair as she sat back in her seat and told the driver he could start leaving.

“Yes,” she said. “His name is Michael Hastings. He’s an asshole paparazzi that has basically been stalking me ever since I broke out into the field.”

How could someone do that? How could someone invade every moment of another person’s life and feel okay with it enough to put their head on the pillow at night?

“So he’s been following you for a few years now? And you can’t call the cops on him?” You asked.

JJ shook her head and moved to your end of the limo, snuggling into you. “No, I’ve tried-“

“That doesn’t make any sense!” If someone was stalking your girlfriend there had to be a way to get him to fuck off.

“It doesn’t make any sense, but it’s true.”

“How?”

“Because he doesn’t get close to me so he doesn’t pose a physical threat and given that he’s never really approached me, in the eyes of the law, there’s no reason to believe that he would physically harm me.”

What?! “So you’re saying that you need to be physically harmed or threatened in order to get him away from you? That taking pictures at a camera’s length isn’t equally as invasive? What the fuck is that about?” Normally, you weren’t an angry person, but you really liked JJ; just because she was a model didn’t mean that she deserved to have her privacy invaded all the time.

On the way back to JJ’s apartment, she told you more about her relationship with Kate – how it was everything she’d ever imagined in a relationship, but was ruined by the invasiveness of the paparazzi, specifically Michael Hastings. He’d taken photo after photo from far enough away that it wasn’t illegal and left the two feeling like they had nothing to themselves anymore. The relationship was strained to the point where Kate couldn’t take it anymore, and she left, though she loved JJ more than almost anything else in the world. “That’s why I’m so afraid,” she started.

JJ’s apartment complex was in sight, and it was already swarmed with paparazzi. “Shit!” She called Spencer. “Spence, Y/N and I need a place to escape. The paparazzi are swarmed outside my apartment. Could we come by your place for a while?”

Her eyes darted all around the car, horrified at the hands that were smacking against the windows and the screams the pervaded the interior. “Thanks, Spence. We really appreciate it.”

She hung up the phone and told the driver to gun it to Spencer’s address. “He’s going to let us crash with him for a few days until this dies down a bit.”

“You sure he’s okay with that?”

She nodded. “Luke is there too; he said they are prepared for people to out them, so it’s okay.”

This was not how things should be. Spencer and Luke shouldn’t have to be outed because you both needed a place to lay low because you were outed. It was bullshit. You loved what you did and you wanted to be with JJ, but the side effects of fame were something you’d never truly understood until this point in your life.

Within five minutes, the driver dropped you off at Spencer’s place so you could make your way up to his apartment with your luggage. “What the hell happened?” He asked the moment you entered his apartment. Luke came out of the shadows to grab your bags and help you inside, telling you how sorry he was that the paparazzi sucked.

“Michael Hastings broke the news,” JJ said. Her eyes bore into Spencer and she fell into his arms. “I can’t do this again, Spence. I lost Kate, I can’t…”

More than anything, you wanted to tell her that she wasn’t going to lose you too, but how could you, when you’d never been violated like this before. Spencer’s grip tightened around her small frame, one hand cradling her neck while the other rubbed at her back. “I fucking hate that guy,” he said matter-of-factly.

“Me too.”

“Let’s get you both settled in,” Luke said.

Both you and JJ were more than grateful for Spencer and Luke’s hospitality, but you hated the fact that you couldn’t even go home because for some reason people cared about who JJ was dating.

Over the course of the next couple of days, it seemed like the crowd of paparazzi on the ground floor only increased in size. “I don’t get it,” you laughed. “Why do people care if we’re doing each other?”

“Because we live in a sex-obsessed world,” Spencer said as he passed the living room. “Personally, I think that both of you should just do an exclusive. With someone or just online. Take the power away from the media and do it yourself since it’s going to happen anyway.”

You’d been tossing that idea back and forth in your minds since you arrived at Spencer’s place. Your phone buzzed in your pocket; it was Luke being a dork and saying hi from across the room. “Really?”

“Yup,” he laughed.

When you looked back down, you were met with something you never expected – even now. “Really?”

“What?” JJ asked. She took the phone from your hands and stared in horror at the screen. It was a picture of you in your robe from just hours before, and the robe was opened enough that your breasts were exposed. It was all over the Internet and the tabloids. “Baby, I’m so sorry!” The tears swelled in her eyes as she watched the embarrassment wash over you.

“Hastings took this picture,” you said softly as you closed your arms around yourself. “He took this from the building across the street.” The words could barely leave you. You felt weak. “I need a breather.” Without thinking, you bolted up from the couch and grabbed your coat, wrapping it tightly around you.

“Where are you going?” JJ asked sadly. In her eyes you saw the wave of sadness. You wanted to run to her. You wanted to tell her it would be okay. But you felt so debased and you needed time to breathe. “Y/N-“

“I need to decompress,” you said. “I’m sorry. Spencer, Luke, thank you so much for what you’ve done for us. I can never make it up to you.”

Before you could watch her cry, you turned and ran out of the apartment, shielding yourself from the paparazzi as you hailed a cab in an attempt to return home. Truly, you’d underestimated the effect the paparazzi could have on you. Through the lens, you’d caught different aspects of people they’d never known existed, but that had all been consensual. Now, you were on the other end, desecrated by the very object you’d built your life around –the one that had brought you to JJ in the first place. There was something poetic about it. The camera brought you together, and the camera tore you apart.

story time...

so I was at work the other day and a coworker voiced to me how she believes another coworker wouldn’t be able to get promoted because of his heavy Spanish accent…


I tell this coworker that although he has a very heavy accent, he’s still likely to get the job because most of our guest are from South America anyways,  he’s fluent in English, and most importantly… has the skills for the position. 


she then tells me “this is America, he needs to get rid of his accent. It’ll be hard for him to understand things because he doesn’t know English” 


“understand things like what?”, I proceeded to ask. “he’s been here for 9 months I think he knows the restaurant very well and he knows English. He just has a heavy Spanish accent”


she then tells me in a scolding manner as she walks off to quench her thirst, “this is amerikkka if you don’t know English or aren’t fluent in it you don’t deserve to be here” 




I wonder how many people think like this? I wonder if people forget that this land was COLONIZED/STOLEN… it is no ones but the natives. NO ONE IS FROM AMERICA… UR ANCESTORS COLONIZED THIS BITCH OR WAS FORCED TO DO SO!!!

I don’t really like talking about this, and I’m doing it anonymously because I really don’t want attention, but I’m currently being mentally abused. It’s come from both my parents and luckily I was able to escape my father but coming to terms with what my mom is doing has been hard. I know I need to reach out and get help but I don’t know how to. It’s hard, and I feel more so when it comes from someone who’s supposed to love you unconditionally. Thank you for your writing, it’s helped me so much

Hi friend i understand what youre going through. I have recently also realized that my mother is emotionally abusive, but im lucky enough to have a support system to help me through it. I think that if you have a school counselor or something or even a teacher or friends that you trust, you should go to them and get out all your emotions and ask for help. Im also always here if you need to rant. I love you and im so sorry that you have to go through that

Im sorry guys this week has been really hard for me. I cant even being to explain it all. I honestly have hardly been sleeping. So Im sorry if I post alot this week about sad things . I just really am. And I dont know what to do with everything I have to go thu right now 💔.

i touched on this a little yesterday, but can we just take a moment and realize that the only person h.anzo has ever been loved by unconditionally was g.enji??? we don’t know much about his mother but i doubt she was around long or she’d be mentioned a lot more in voicelines or the general lore…
anyway, to the clan and his father he was never more than the heir and the only “love” he received was the praise for his achievements that he had to work hard for. 

what i’m trying to say is…. this man has been wandering the world for years, lonely and unloved because he killed the only person who ever loved him simply because he was there, because he was family. for g.enji to love him he had to do nothing and g.enji had to do nothing for h.anzo to love him. the man craves love as much as he craves redemption but he knows he’s not worthy of any kind of positive feelings and it’s killing him inside :))))))))))

Are you ….Ready For It?

Lets just say for someone who has never been in a relationship, this song hit me HARD. I’ve mentioned this before but the lyric “we’re dancing ‘round the kitchen in the refrigerator light” gets me so much. I can’t imagine having those magical memories with a person and getting that gut wrenching feeling of knowing they’re all gone. I’ve always preferred bops over slow songs but this song shits on every single bop i’ve listened to. I mean, the lyrics are absolutely captivating, she has never written a song so lyrically coherent. I know she is the bridge queen and every bridge in every song is flawless, but the bridge of this song is the best thing to ever some from Taylor’s music career. It’s emotional, heartfelt and you can hear the pain in her voice, it makes this song so raw and real. I feel like i’m there with her, experiencing everything she felt in those moments. Another lyric that gets me is “back before you lost the one real thing you’ve ever known”. You can tell this break up was one of the hardest things she has endured. I’m so proud of her for being able to have the strength to sit down and pour her heart out into the best song she has ever written. Just know that every time she sings the line “and you call me up again just to break me like a promise” I get chills. Literal chills. This song deserves so much more recognition.

put a taylor swift song in my inbox and i’ll share every thought i’ve ever had on it

Okay I know Chelsea has been working really hard at her body and eating super clean and fresh for MONTHS... but she is way too skinny. She looks unhealthy. She was always an average/bigger body type, and now she has taken it just way too far. Too thin. I hope now that her wedding has passed she will ease up on everything. It makes me worried for her

I don’t think she looks unhealthy

Marvel: we can’t make one of our film or show leads Asian. That would be…. against the original source material. That’s also why we can’t make them LGBTQ+.

Power Rangers (2017): hey what’s up. 4/5 of our leads are POC. One is autistic and one is confirmed LGBTQ+. We have the first Asian superhero in a big-budget film, the first autistic superhero in a big/budget film, and the first LGBTQ+ superhero in a big-budget film. None of this was really in the original source material, but representation matters and we specifically casted them with the intention of making a diverse film.

Emotional Consent

I’ve always been hesitant to post about this because I’m worried people will take it as a personal offense and I just want to say in advance this isn’t “@ anyone” or a callout even

I just feel like emotional consent as a concept is rarely talked about and therefore it’s often breached unknowingly (hence why I don’t never get mad at anyone specific for breaching it), and also I think it’s important I make this post. I didn’t learn what it was till I was older, and most people don’t.

Essentially “emotional consent” is a mutual understanding and willing agreement between both parties when discussing directly emotional or potentially emotionally loaded questions.

I’m going to start with examples, and I know it might feel bad at first if you recognize you do some of them (it’s okay, we all do from time to time), but please keep reading because I promise I’ll get onto alternative dialogues and solution

Here are some examples of what a breach of emotional consent can look like- not all the ways of course, but the major ones off the top of my head:

  • Venting to someone without warning or established boundaries this can look like starting a conversation by venting, or detailing graphic information seemingly out of nowhere and without effective trigger warnings. This can put people in situations where they feel like they have to respond, even if they’re not emotionally equipped, if they’re busy, or if they don’t have the spoons. Of course, usually this wasn’t the intent of the venter, but still has the same effect. FYI- this includes celebrities, social media icons, and people you admire. 
  • Talking graphically about sex, masturbation, or anything in that range without warning or established boundaries this can look like anything from sharing a funny sexual escapade with your friends, and dirty jokes, to sexual harassment and telling someone hows bad you want to fuck them despite not knowing how they feel about it. Sometimes in these scenarios, people can appear visibly comfortable in attempt to fit in and not seem prudish, or to avoid awkward confrontation. This can also be especially sensitive because this is a topic that can very easily and unexpectedly bring up traumas and insecurities along with the discomfort, and it can perpetuate rape culture.
  • Using pet-names and romantic implications, even platonically, without established consent this one was tough for me to swallow at first because I love pet names and I love using them platonically to show love. But even more, I want the people I love to feel comfortable and safe around me. Some people have deeper more negatively charged, or more intensely charged feelings around pet names than I do, and I wouldn’t want to subject them to that. Some people are also comfortable with certain pet names and not others. Also things like calling platonic meetups dates, cuddling, and platonically holding hands mean different things to different people, which is important to respect.
  • Showing people media or sending articles or news with heavy emotional content either without warning, or with the expectation of discussion part of this is about including trigger warnings, and making sure viewing triggering content is optional in spaces and interactions we have control over. Another part though, is the fact that we often expect people to have interactions and discussions with us about emotionally charged topics, including politics, crime, oppression, natural disasters, etc. without fully understanding how this can affect the other person.
  • Telling someone they’re the only person you feel comfortable telling something to, or be open with this one sucks because it usually (except in cases of abuse) comes out of genuine care and wanting to make the other person feel special. That being said, no matter how you phrase it, it can put a massive responsibility on the person that similar to my first example, can make them feel obligated to help even when they’re not in an appropriate place to. 
  • Expecting people to share personal or intimate information a lot of times we ask emotionally loaded questions because we care about and are interested in the lives of our loved ones. That being said, if we’re not careful people can really feel obligated to share information they’re not prepared to, or don’t want to process at the moment. This can look like “How’s your health been?” “How are you handling [life event]?” and “Why didn’t you tell me sooner?”

so now the more pleasant part! What can it look like to prioritize emotional consent instead- these correspond in order of initial bullets

  • Starting vague and asking if it’s okay an example dialogue could be “I’m feeling crappy about [blank] are you up to listen to me talk about it?” I also love to add “or should I try [alternative coping method/talking to someone else right now?]” to the end of that if I have one so the other person knows if they say no I have something to turn to. Another example could be “Would it be alright for me to vent right now? FYI it may include mentions of [possible triggers] so if you’re not up for it right now I understand?” or simply “Are you comfortable with me talking about [blank?]”. Also talking to a celebrity or idol “You really helped me with [blank]. I don’t know if you’re comfortable with detail so I won’t elaborate, but I really appreciate it.” or “You really helped me with [blank.] [An explanation about what specifically helped or inspired you in more detail rather than graphic description of the event.]”
  • Again! You can just ask example dialogue can include “Can I mention something about my sex life?” “I have a joke but it’s dirty so I want to make sure thats okay with you” “Can I say something nsfw?” “Is everyone here okay with sex mentions?” 
  • Asking still works! Example dialogue can be “Thanks [petname] (are you okay with me using that or would you rather I don’t)” “Are you okay being called [petname]?” “Are you comfortable with [intimate platonic act]?” “Do you want to [intimate platonic act]?” “I’d like to [intimate platonic act] if you’d be okay with that”
  • Ask/Warn ahead of time or clarify you don’t need response example dialogue “I want to process [news event] but I know it’s heavy so I wanted to ask first” “Jsyk this article contains [possible triggers] so don’t read it if you think it’d be harmful to you]” “Can I ask your opinion on [charged topic]. If you’d rather not, I understand” “[thought or link to article] FYI no need to respond. I just wanted to share.]”
  • Show you’re appreciation in other ways using phrases that show appreciation but don’t implicate responsibility like “Thanks for being here for me whenever you’re able to” “I really appreciate being able to talk about this with you” “It means a lot to me that I can feel so comfortable and open with you” “Being able to talk about this with you has been really helpful for me and I’m really glad I was ables to.”
  • Asking with an easy out or optional response examples include “Hey, I know you’re dealing with as lot and grieving right now so I absolutely don’t need a response, but I wanted to remind you if you need support in any way I’m available and have time right now.” “Do you want to talk about [emotionally charged life event] or would you rather talk about something else right now?” “I know it’s hard to talk about these things and I understand if you can’t, but I want to remind you that when you can and want to I’m available and won’t judge you.” “Would venting be helpful or draining right now?” “What’s the best way I can support you, or are you not sure right now?”

Sorry this became a long ass post but I thought it was important. I should also add that the exception of course is therapists and counselors, crisis hotlines, or other people trained and already prepared to cope with these things. but besides that- try and emo responsibly.

So Scientology has recently been purchasing ad spots on social media sites including Twitter and Facebook. Scientology has always worked hard to recruit young people it seems like they’re investing in social media as well now. I know most people think Scientology is a joke but it’s a seriously dangerous cult which uses fear, extortion, violence, vandalism and various other unethical actions against those who oppose them both inside and outside the church. Here is key information on the abuses committed by Scientology: 

•Scientology uses a form of pseudo-therapy called auditing which focuses largely on embarrassing and traumatic memories. Scientology collects the information you share and uses that information to threaten you if you oppose the church. They also charge huge amounts of money for auditing sessions (which is why they really are doing all this).

 •They are extremely anti-psychology and psychiatry and pressure you against taking any antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication or any other drugs for mental health.

 •They believe homosexuality can be “cured” and are blatantly homophobic. •Enemies of the church are labeled “suppressive persons” and it is forbidden to communicate with such people. This isn’t just to limit the negative press they receive but also is a manipulative tool. If you are in the cult and decide to leave or criticize the church you stand the risk of being completely cut off from your friends and family. “Suppressive Persons” are often also harassed, stalked, or threatened. 

•If you’re new to Scientology and your family or friends are worried about you being in a cult you’re instructed to cut them out of your life, increasing your reliance on the support system (though there’s nothing supportive about it) the church give to you. 

•Scientology’s doctrine includes the concept of “Fair Game”. This basically says that those who are judged a threat to the Church can be punished and harassed by any and all means possible.

 •Because of this, they have no moral qualms about having their members lie in court which they use to defend themselves from lawsuits or charges that they’ve broken the law and also to help win lawsuits against their enemies. •They essentially spied on and stole information from the IRS and tried to frame the mayor of Clearwater Florida for a hit and run. 

•Scientology filed 50 different lawsuits in one year against the Cult Awareness Network, an anti-cult organization. Using false testimony they won one of the suits and because the organization couldn’t pay the fine Scientology took the organizations name and logo so if you were calling to get out of Scientology you’d be unknowingly telling Scientology of your intentions. (For full transparency my mom was a member of the Cult Awareness Network before it was taken over and was sued individually by the Church of Scientology) 

•Scientology has an official branch known as the Sea Org, a mixture between a paramilitary group and slavery, comprised of their most dedicated members including many children/teens who’ve been raised in Scientology. This is where some of the most rampant and terrifying abuse in Scientology occurs. 

•Sea Org members often work over 100 hours a week for Scientology for around 2$ per hour.

 •Sea Org member’s living conditions are terrible; they live in overcrowded communal rooms with up to 12 other people, are not given healthcare unless there is a free clinic in the area, often are forced to miss meals or sleep in order to successfully completed their work. 

•Several former Sea Org members have accused the church of physical abuse. •Sea Org members may not have children and women who have become pregnant have reportedly been forced/coerced by their higher-ups to have abortions. 

•Leaving Sea Org without permission automatically makes you a suppressive person, so young adults who’ve been raised in Scientology who want to leave are cut off from everyone they’ve ever known with no money or job and getting permission to leave can require 3 years of hard labor, social isolation, and group pressure.

The universe didn’t seem to want me to draw today, but it was too good of an episode I just couldn’t not draw something 

Being nonbinary is nothing to be ashamed of. You don’t have to be bursting with pride, ready to shout it from the rooftops if that’s just not who you are, but nor should you have to hide it, keep it tucked away. It’s a part of you, big or small, and you shouldn’t have to worry about life being complicated because of it, or what other people may think.


You do you. Be nonbinary. Pin the flag to your wall, or just whisper it to yourself in the middle of the night. Lead rallying cries for nonbinary support groups, or just reblog nb posts on tumblr. Be nonbinary, whatever and however that means for you.

Valentine’s as a holiday is garbage, but Jim and Spock hanging out to watch the sun rise on a farm is not.
