this is a good group of people too

On being the fat girl at practice, part 2

It’s been 6 months since I started bjj, and still one of the most awkward experiences for me is going to the open mat.

Take today for example. I felt like I had to beg people to roll with me, and I’m not sure why it’s like that at this gym. Is it a normal thing at every place? Is it just me, taking everything too personally?

If there are people from my class at the open mat then it’s usually a good time. We are more comfortable with each other and, bonus, we are all white belts so we don’t feel like we are wasting someone else’s time.

But if that isn’t the case then it can be incredibly frustrating. There were a few times I tried to ask people to roll and they kind of side-eyed away to another person, or someone asked a group of us on the sidelines if anyone wanted to roll and I said yes, but he went to the next guy in line and asked him instead.

I can’t tell if it’s because I’m a woman, or its because I’m a white belt, or if it’s because I am fat. There was another white belt woman there who wasn’t having any difficultly with guys that wanted to roll, and she is thinner and pretty. It might just be my self esteem, but I feel like I would have more luck if I was prettier? Thinner?

I’ve talked about this with the other few women at the gym, and the other woman around my size feels the same way that I do, but the couple skinnier, prettier girls don’t seem to have that much of an issue with it.

I want to get better, and ever since I can remember my main life goal has been to lose weight. But I hate going to an open mat and having to try to hold back tears because I have to beg people to roll with me for one reason or another. It’s frustrating and makes me feel like this just isn’t the community for me.

I don’t know. I know I probably sound dramatic to most of you, and that’s okay. I just feel like I’m always trying to justify my worth to people, or avoiding people’s stares and rude comments due to my weight. And I usually gravitate to activities and sports that are women-only because I feel safer and more accepted for my size than in a group of men, so bjj is completely out of my comfort zone. And maybe I just am not strong enough to move outside of this comfort zone.

i just wanted to put this out there.

stop thinking everyone is your friend. your life will be much easier and have way less emotional hurt if you do so. it’s okay to admit you have less friends than you’d like to think you have.

i’ve always been the person to be like “we’re not friends.” not to be malicious or anything, but rather to help people realize that civil acquaintances are perfectly okay. i don’t dislike people just because they aren’t my friends.

when you call anyone that’s relatively nice to you a friend you start risking…solid and good friendships.

when you are quick to call people your friend you probably have set your friend expectations too low which means you’ll probably see yourself rotating your “friend” group a lot more than usual. you start allowing behaviors that aren’t friendly to be shrugged off. you won’t know your “friends” as well as you think you do + they won’t know you as well either.

i feel like an underrated word is: acquaintance.
you’re barely friends. you just know each other. you don’t really have a personal connection. and guess what? that’s totally okay.

friendship should be built on trust, common interests, etc. keyword meaning: built. y'know since most friendships take some time. i know there are friendships that just happen. that’s what happened with my best friend and a few other friendships. we just clicked. however, i wouldn’t bank on that for every friendly person you happen upon. being friendly doesn’t mean friends. it just means someone is being kind and open to you.

i talk to a lot of people irl and online. people show up and just talk to me all the time. but that doesn’t mean i’m friends with all of those people just because i can talk to anyone about anything with a certain level of enthusiasm and interest. i’m just sociable and think it’s important to remember names, faces, and basic information. it makes people feel good when you remember them, y'know?

i just don’t like seeing people hurt, so i encourage everyone to truly define what they want from their friends before they call everyone their friend.

i’m not saying people that aren’t your friends can’t hurt you. i’m just saying by being more critical of how you define a friend will help you make sure your friends are super unlikely to hurt you.

oh and one more thing. just because someone is friends with your friend doesn’t mean that you’re friends! you’re mutuals. + also don’t force friendships onto other people. it’s bad for both parties involved.

i lied. one more thing. stop confiding in everyone that’s nice to you! you’re gonna build a super shaky foundation of a one-sided trust that where one person never actually said they’d be the shoulder to cry on.

tl;dr: be careful of who you call a friend. i’m just tired of people getting hurt by their so-called friends.

anonymous asked:

how would hinata, noya, suga, and, kenma accommodate to a s/o who is really shy around groups of people but when alone, can be really talkative and outgoing? also hi ur my fave, hope you're having a fantastic day -kenma anon

Aww, thank you!! I hope you have a good day too ovo

Hinata would often forget how shy his partner could get in public, since he’s used to them being talkative. He’d berate himself for forgetting, and work extra hard to make them comfortable in crowded areas, usually by making them focus on him.

Nishinoya would try to push them to talk more when in public, to try and help them get over some of their shyness. But as soon as he noticed them getting more and more uncomfortable, he’d quickly whisk them away to a more enjoyable setting.

Sugawara would make sure they were comfortable around larger groups, and often talks for them if they don’t mind. But when they’re alone, he’s fine to sit back and listen to them, smiling fondly all the while.

Kenma would understand them completely - he was the same, if he was talking about something he enjoyed. Them being together in public would be a tad difficult, as they’d both take turns calming the other down until they could get somewhere quiet.

types as people i’ve met irl (infp pov)

ESFP

- in a constant loop between “you know what FUCK SOCIETY I WILL LIVE MY LIFE HOWEVER I WANT AND DO WHATEVER I WANT” and “i still lowkey want to please people around me and not cause too much conflict tho”

- that thing when an ESFP starts describing a situation and they play out all people in it and they do it SO GOOD and it’s SO FUNNY do they all do that

- at the centre of attention is where they will be

- somehow doesn’t exactly belong to any group but is considered a part of every group

- me: oh yesterday I’ve met /that person you have no chances of knowing/

ESFP: ooooOOOH I KNOW THEM

me: how

- is never home but somehow manages to sleep?????

ENFP

- BEST LITERARY TASTES. If ENFP tells you to read that book you go read that book I’m telling you

- “and they told me to do it but you know it’s stupid so i’m not gonna do it”

- can be super annoyed by people they love, but remains loyal to their group

- oh no you are sad??? it’s okay they will bake cookies or smh

- the more personal conversation gets the more “lmao” there is

- you can say when they feel happy to be around you and it’s just so adorable

- they are so smart & try to act like they aren’t & everyone can see they are smart anyway so you failed, entp

- entp: i’m going to try doing that new thing and it will be awesome and i will love it!

entp, later: it sucks

entp, even more later: NO YOU KNOW IT WAS COOL ALL ALONG

- *drinks awful juice for the first time* *eats awful meal for the first time* “ohhh it’s… pretty good!”

- really happy to be a part of some group but won’t say it out loud

- “and it was THEN when my Fe destroyed me!!”

INFP

- after reading this will probably try explaining to me why the math comparison was wrong and didn’t fit

- have such a hard time expressing their feelings

- if they like you and they can talk to you about their day they are so happy? just talk about what they were doing, really.

- “i feel bad? well i guess i will just bottle it up forever”

- can be rly rly quiet & needs a lot of alone time

- there’s objective logic everywhere just let me find it logic is my bitch

- they will be frustrated if you don’t make sense to them but they will try to understand - if not because they like you then at least for science reasons because “what is that wild creature and why do they act like that, i must observe”

- “sarcasm is the only way I speak”

INTP

- I LOVE

- when I start talking to an INTP the 7 hours long conversation is almost guaranteed

- they seem so genuinely interested in what you have to say and ask questions and stuff & what they say makes you genuinely interested as well because they have such an interesting knowledge on subjects you’ve never thought about

- “on the other side tho”

- puns

- on most subjects it’s really easy to convince them because they are always open to see the other side’s point of view

- usually remembers all you’ve told them but always asks if they remember correctly

- intp: OKAY I MADE UP MY MIND

intp, a day later: ON THE OTHER SIDE,

- “look at that dog!”

- mood swings

- so adorable just let me hug them all

INFJ

- takes care of your shit since you’ve met them

- MAKES PLANS. SO MANY PLANS. HOW CAN YOU MANAGE ALL THESE PLANS.

- “i’ve been planning on reading/watching it one day since 2004 but I haven’t found any time since then”

- “my Fe can tolerate your stupidity but my Ni-Ti is so done”

- always done with humanity

- *snarky commentary*

ISTJ

- “so usually when I wake up I have a strict plan of how this day is going to look like and it’s extremely pissing off when something doesn’t go according to that plan”

- ISTJ: *is doing homework for ten hours*

me: do you maybe want to—

ISTJ: NO I WON’T COPY OFF YOUR HOMEWORK I’M NOT WEAK

- somehow really wants to show you that you are important to them, even if they are awkward with feelings

- that smile they have when they talk about people they love doing stuff

- also that excited voice they have while doing so

- “I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND. HOW CAN YOU JUST… NOT BE PREPARED.”

- their anger is so cold and so visible

- some values are not to be touched!

INTJ

- really really REALLY cares about people they like

- is really sensitive for their loved ones’ pain and really awkward when trying to comfort them but boy do they try

- that person that will come back for you after the group wanders off and you are left behind

- INTJ, about really hard situations they’ve been through: “this wasn’t such a big deal tho, I mean eh, it’s over now”

- “HOW CAN PEOPLE BE SO STUPID I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND”

- ignorance pisses them off even more than it pisses off other human beings

- it’s Monday and my INTJ dad calls me when I’m at school.

me: yeah?

INTJ: hey, I have something important to tell you.

me: sure, what?

INTJ: could you pick up [your sister] from school-

me: sure

INTJ: –on Friday?

- “you know I just… don’t like it when something doesn’t go according to my plan”

- will plan everything for the trip before you try helping

I was talking with an able-bodied person the other day about how it is often best for disabled people to put their worst-face forward during a health assessment and she asked, “Like fake being sicker than you are?” and I said, “No, like, DON’T fake being healthier than you are.”

Because, yeah, sure, you might be having a good day that day and want to show it off, but it could end up making you lose out on services you really need for being ‘too healthy’. Showing our best side is only showing one side and often is showing a side that is unsustainable for us. And then the salt on the wound will be that you have to spend the entire day after the assessment curled up in bed in misery, because you used every ounce of energy you have just making it through the assessment in the first place.

Disabled/Chronically ill people, as a group, are often taught by society to put their best-face forward. To put on our brave-faces. No, our healthy-faces. And not only is that not necessary for us to have to do, but it could end up losing us the help that we really do need.

The signs as I know them
  • <p> <b>Aries:</b> Aries is the fun sign. They love a good laugh and a party, but not with too many people. They're really social in smaller groups, and rather adventurous people with passion for their hobbies. Don't get them angry tho, because they find it scarily easy to yell at you and abandon you.<p/><b>Taurus:</b> I've learned tauruses are probably the strongest and most caring people of all, even if they've been through a lot they'll always be there to help others and give the nicest compliments and advice. They like to keep themselves busy trying new stuff and won't easily let people get to them.<p/><b>Gemini:</b> First of all let's clear something up: geminis are not two-faced. At all. Nor bitchy, nor lying. I've experienced they are actually really loving, have a huge interest in music, are stylish and funny. They're rather insecure and crazy, but in a fun way. They might not always be able to express their feelings the right way, but they try and that's what matters
  • Cancer: The Cancers I know are generally positive, optimistic, and adventurous. They want to experience as much in life and sometimes go a little too far when doing that. They're impulsive. When mad, they will give you the worst looks but won't attack you, afraid to get hurt.
  • Leo: Leos near me are some of the best people. They're caring, funny and very beautiful. They also tend to keep their feelings to themselves but oh, they're full of feelings and thoughts that should be heard but never will.
  • <p/> <b>Virgo:</b> A thing the virgos I know have in common, is I loved them and they left me. One purposely did, one didn't, but to me, virgos represent heartbreak. Since I know only two virgos who are also very different from each other, I can't give you one stereotype. One of them was your typical tumblr white girl who lacked depth and braincells, but was very fun to be around, cute, caring, happy... Till she got enough of me and started calling me names. For the other one how she behaved would depend on who you are. I've seen her mood change in a matter of seconds. She is a contradiction. Sweet yet bitchy. Intimidating yet easy to talk to. Tough yet emotional. Her smiles easily make someones day. As a virgo stereotype I'd say they're people you'll never forget.<p/><b>Libra:</b> I know the libra stereotype is that they're cute, but as far as I know they're all rude assholes caused by being insecure. They won't hesitate to insult or let down others if that'd make them feel better. They're really sneaky and talk shit behind your back.<p/><b>Scorpio:</b> I don't think I've ever met a perfectly alright or "normal" scorpio, somehow there's always something odd about them. Depression, no father, gender issues, been bullied, not straight, stealing.. It makes me wonder if "normal" scorpios exist. On the contrary, I've also never met a scorpio I don't like. They're really nice yet insane. And, being a scorpio myself, I find they are the only people who don't think I'm too intimidating to yell at. I've never met a purely stereotypical scorpio tho, we aren't all that scary and intimidating, not as obsessed with sex, and we don't fight everyone we see, only if we have a good reason to. Overall we're just deeply good, emo people.<p/><b>Sagittarius:</b> Sags are really social people with a lot of friends, that they like being around. What they probably like even more, is showing off their friends. And their knowledge. And money. Clothes. And so on. They are good storytellers tho, and will keep you interested.<p/><b>Capricorn:</b> All Capricorns near me are outgoing and sweet. They're really lovable and funny and have an ambition to make a change in the world. They'll always be nice to you, no matter what.<p/><b>Aquarius:</b> Y'all are FUCKING insane. Aquariuses tend to try too hard on a lot of stuff, and that makes them annoying sometimes. For instance they're smart, they know it, and love to let other people know as well. They're really some know-it-alls. Some of them stereotypically have no heart, some only care about themselves, and somehow a few do actually express some feelings, but not that often.<p/><b>Pisces:</b> Pisces people either have too many emotions or none at all. They either think too much or not at all. They easily hurt your feelings and then come apologise afterwards, when it's too late. They can be really rude and annoying at times and don't seem to care about you at all, like they're in their own world. They're not really social people.<p/></p>

For any of us conspiracy theorists to suddenly say “nope, there’s no conspiracy” when we’ve got 1 day to go, like…. come on, that’s incredibly out-of-character for us. I have no problem being wrong, but i have no intention of changing my tune ONE DAY before the episode actually airs. We’ve always been the underdogs, we’ve always been the crazy ones. TOO BAD. I’m not distancing myself from the beliefs of this amazing, fun group of people because there may not be a conspiracy after all. There was never a guarantee of this conspiracy coming true – that’s why it has the name CONSPIRACY. This is supposed to be fun! If you’re not having fun log out right now and come back when you’re feeling better. Doubting the conspiracy at the very end does you no good. Wait till tomorrow and then you can make a logical decision about how to proceed in this Fandom.

Stop settling for friends who make you feel like you can’t be yourself, or that you have to change a large part of who you are in order to be good enough for them.

Stop settling for a life of sitting still, of watching other people go after what they want while you sit back because you’re too afraid to try.

Stop settling for toxic social environments. If you’re invited to a dinner outing with a group of gossipy and judgmental people, politely decline. If you have to go because it’s a work thing or because you need to support your partner, go for an hour and leave. Don’t ever give more of yourself and your energy than you need to.

Stop settling for being an ‘okay’ friend. If a friend is going through a bad breakup, show up to their apartment with beer and cake and don’t leave until they’re ready for you to leave. Show up for the people who show up for you.

Stop settling for the idea that fear is always something that should be avoided. If your heart starts pounding when you think about applying for that job or signing up for that acting class or trying to make amends with that one friend, listen to it. Embrace the fear. Fear is a compass.

Stop settling for a life of being on autopilot. Of commuting to work like a zombie, of playing on your phone instead of being fully present for movie night with your friends, of thinking about what you’re going to say next when you’re talking to someone. Just let yourself relax, and be there. Something will always come afterwards, just trust.

Stop settling for the idea that happiness is a milestone to attain instead of a state of being. At some point, you must grasp that if you just keep chasing and chasing, there will always be something new to want. But if you start focusing on the joy of being, simply being, you’ll have a much easier time finding happiness. After all, it’s already there. It’s always been there.

How to move forward after Election Day, according to the pros who are right there with you

In the wake of Trump’s shocking victory, people are grieving, wallowing in guilt, or feeling paralyzed by fear that our country will become less and less safe for women, people of color, Muslims, undocumented immigrants, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities, among the other groups Trump targeted throughout his campaign.

For those in a position to part with cash, there are plenty of organizations that can use your money for good. But if you want to put your time and energy to good use, too, there are concrete things you can do on a daily basis to make the U.S. a better and safer place for all.

We spoke to leaders of communities that will not be silenced in the next four years, and asked for their advice on what Americans can do right now, should they be in need of inspiration after the election results. Here’s what they said.

  • Talk to Muslim Americans.

  • Support community-based alternatives to incarceration.
  • Talk about your abortion. 
  • Talk about the spectrum of sexual identities. 
  • Be vocal about your needs.

Benjamin in every episode - The Well

My father was a good fighter. One of the best in The Kingdom. It was about a year ago. Ezekiel sent his detachment out to clear out a building. There was too many wasted and not enough backup. Eight men didn’t make it out. My father was one of ‘em. But Ezekiel, he’s a lot more careful now. He told me that it, uh, well. He told me he was keeping his deal with that group quiet because he thinks the people would wanna fight. He says that even if we did, we wouldn’t win, at least not without losing people, maybe a lot of 'em.

Gif source:  Daryl

Imagine having been Daryl’s girlfriend before the outbreak, but having been separated before he met up with the group. All these years later he’s believed you to be dead and vice versa, until you run into each other in the woods and everyone in the group is confused because Daryl never talking about you since it was too painful for him.

——— Request for kristalulah ———

Upon hearing footsteps, you’d hid, having learned over the course of the apocalypse that other people are more dangerous than the dead were, in some cases. It was only as they got closer into view that you got a good look at them, but they had passed your hiding spot before you caught a glimpse of that familiar vest.

Your heart stuttered in your chest, and before you’d thought, you gasped out, “Daryl?” He turned his head at the sound of his name, the others of his group drawing their weapons at the sight of a stranger, but wavering in their defensive stances when Daryl rushed to you, wrapping you in his arms and knocking what was left of your breath out of you. “Oh, god. Oh, god,” you repeated, relief and shock rushing through you as you grip onto him as if it were the only thing keeping you alive, “Daryl.” Seeing him was like a ghost of your life before the world had gone to shit, and you embraced the hauntingly unreal feeling as he buried his nose into your neck like he used to.

His voice comes out muffled as his shoulders shake with the same electrifying shock of finding you again, after all these years, “I was sure ya’ were dead.”

“*squeal* YOU WERE GOING FOR IT. YOU WERE LIKE ‘YEAH!!!’“

I’ve been seeing WAY too many self-hate comments lately on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and hearing them IRL from friends. I just want people to appreciate their own hard work, and that it takes TIME and EFFORT to get good at ANYTHING. Text-responses to all of you was NO LONGER ENOUGH so I filmed myself ranting.

Please please realize that you’re all amazing artists, writers, vloggers, creators - whatever it is you’ve decided to do - and that you’ll improve as you learn, and to learn you must practice :)

The other problem, too, is that the people who think LGBT literally only stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Transgender don’t seem to realize that /none/ of those four groups face the exact same problems.

You can’t exclude asexuals for “not facing what we do” when you all don’t face the same things yourselves. Good try, though.

You Talk Too Much

Original or requested: Original

Pairing: Loki x Reader

Word count: 1.032


Loki tried to take over your city. Again. While you were patiently waiting for the Avengers to come and save the day, the worse happened. You, with a small group of people, were kidnapped. Kidnapped to Asgard. Now, you stand before his throne in a room that seems like a fairytale. It didn’t suppose to look like a fairytale when you’re standing before Loki, the god of Mischief and Lies.

“Is good to see humans surrendering so easily.” With a mean smile, Loki stands up, looking down at you and the others.

“On your knees.”

Immediately, everyone gets down on their knees, not daring to raise their eyes to the Asgardian god.

“You.” He points at you, his smile fading. “Why aren’t you worshipping me, mortal?”

Keeping your head up, you take a deep breath to gather courage.

“Not interested.” You say, eyes on him as he slowly walks up to you.

“You dare to…”

“Here, just between you and me. I’m not afraid of you. So let’s skip all this worship bullshit and you can take me back home.” You whisper, trying to confuse him. You’ve always been a talker, and you know how to use it in your favor. You just don’t know if it’ll work with a god.

“Are you mad, mortal?” Loki’s face is like ice, you can’t read it. “Take her to a special cell. Kill the others. ”

“What? No!” Before he could turn around, you hold his wrist. He stops anger and surprise in his eyes. “D-don’t do this.”

“Why should I even listen to you?”

“It’s better to be a merciful king than an evil king.”

“I rather be evil.” He whispers before letting the guards take you.

You yell and fight and try to run away, but those guards tell you to keep quiet and just follow the rules. So, when they lock you in this small cell, with a magic glass that can kill you instantly, you scream again. You scream until your throat hurts so bad you can’t find your voice anymore.

After endless hours, you hear footsteps but you don’t bother to stand up. The cold hard ground finally got a bit comfortable. You hope someone is bringing you food. But no. When you see him, the god of Lies again, you know he brought you no food.

“Are you stupidly brave or completely insane?”Somehow, he opens one of those magic glass and enters the cell. “I wish to know what’s on your mind when you stood up to confront me.”

“I’m not the kind of person who…”

“Who’s smart enough to obey your king?”

“You’re not my king.”

“Haven’t you noticed? You’re in Asgard. And this is a gift for you, mortals.” Loki looks around your empty cell, confusion on his handsome face. Wait. Did you just…? No. You can’t think about these things right now. “Were you sleeping on the ground?”

“Yes. Why? You killed the others, why do you care if I’m sleeping on the ground?”

“You talk too much.”

“I know.” You stand up with a sigh, rolling your eyes at the weird sensation that hits your head.

“What is it?” Running to hold you by the waist, Loki saves you from hitting the ground.

“Nothing. I’m just starving. ”

“I’ll command them to bring you something to eat.”

“If you’re going to kill me, you don’t have to feed me first.”

“I quite enjoy your talking. Maybe you can stay for a while to entertain me. ”

“How lucky I am…” You voice faints when the world spins around again, and suddenly, everything goes black.


A warm breeze caress your cheek, and it feels good to be home. You open your eyes to see a blue sky and a sweet light comes to show you that you’re not at home. Is not that Asgard isn’t beautiful, but you don’t like to feel like a prisoner. Moving a bit to sit up, you notice that you’re laying on a very large bed with comfy pillows.

“A golden cage.” You murmur, smelling something that seems to taste like heaven. On a small table next to your bed, there’s a tray with human food.

You happily eat all the fruits, licking your fingers when you’re done with the strawberries. It’s surprising that they got you human food.

“I hope you feel better.” He declares from behind you.

“Yes. Now I can entertain you with my talking. ” You lay down again, fixing the blue dress you’re wearing. “May I ask who put me into this dress?”

“I did.”

You stare at him, wide-eyed, anger building up in your stomach. How could he do something like that?

“You son of a bitch!”

“What’s a bitch?” He looks at you confused, not sure if you insulted him. You try to keep angry, but you burst into laugh suddenly. You cover your mouth with your hands, struggling to calm down again.

“Oh my God. You are so damn funny.”

“I really don’t know what just happened.” That’s when you notice it, the shadow of a smile on his lips. You keep staring at him until it’s gone.

“You should smile more often. It makes you even more handsome. ”

“Smile?”

“Yes.” Cursing yourself for talking too much, you awkwardly look to your hands. “Sorry, I was just saying the truth.”

“I know. I’m the god of lies, I can tell when someone is honest. I miss honest people, there’s no one I can trust here.” Loki walks around the bed, eyes locked on you.

“You can talk to me if you want. As you say, I’m nothing but a human.”

“You say it like it’s a curse.”

“It isn’t.”

“Would you stay if I promise not to kill those humans who came here with you?” He sits on the edge of the bed, uncertain of what to do. You feel his hesitation, even though you can’t understand it.

“I’ll stay. Well, you don’t treat me like a prisoner. ”

“If that’s your wish, you’re not a prisoner.”

“Now, tell me all your sorrows.”

“We may take some hours.”

Sitting up straight, you smile at him. “Go on, I don’t mind.”

💖 AKB0048- this one is super girly, has great music, and takes place in space! Its about a girl and her friends joining a pop group who travels through space to bring people music. It may be a little too intense for very young audiences, so it’s aimed more for older kids and tweens.

💖Sweetness and Lightning- this is a light and cutesy anime about a little girl and her father. The father learns to cook because he wants to be able to give his daughter a good meal. Every episode they learn a new dish together and it’s so adorable it’s like pure sugar. If you like food, this is the one for you.

💖 Shugo Chara- a take on a magical girl style anime. It’s very colorful and all the characters have a cute little fairy friends that represent what’s in their hearts. The friends all band together to stop the bad guys and protect the dreams of all people! It sounds dorky but I promise it’s super exciting and fun.

💖 usagi drop- also called bunny drop. This one is super heartfelt. An orphaned girl gets taken in by a single man who has no idea how to raise a child. The girl learns about the world while making friends and adjusting to her new life. There are so many warm, fuzzy moments in his one.

💖 gochuumon wa usagi desu ka?- one word. Bunnies. There’s bunnies everywhere. It’s a show about girls who work in cute little cafes where the mascots are rabbits. The characters also dress like rabbits sometimes. Everything is super colorful and the opening and ending themes are super cute too. Coffee. Cakes. Bunnies. Just cutesy everything.

💖 lucky star- this one is really low maintenance to watch. There’s not a whole lot of an overarching plot, it’s just cute comedy. They talk a lot about food, anime, and daily life while attending school. It’s refreshing and relaxing while still being funny.

💖 love live- this is about a school music group. It’s super cute and fun and another great one for those who like music. It definitely makes me want to be one of those cutesy idols with the pretty clothes and dance on stage!

💖 Tamako Market- it’s about a girl who lives in a shopping district. Her family owns a mocha shop and so do her neighbors. She meets a bird named Dera who begins to live with her and they become fast friends. Tamako works to resolve issues all over the shopping district while helping her friends.

💖 cardcaptor Sakura- another magical girl anime! Sakura is an elementary school girl who winds up in charge of a mysterious set of cards that can summon helpful and powerful creatures. She and her friends fight off monsters while collecting the cards. Also sakura’s friend always dresses her up in adorable costumes whenever they go out to do magical girl stuff. It’s super cute and light-hearted.

Well, I hope those are good suggestions! Be sure to add more if you can think of them!

@chanyeolspout aka my best dream and worst nightmare. Writes for SHINee, Exo, Big Bang, and GOT7. Go learn a thing or two from her. She is phenomenal. My FAVORITE when it comes to reader/idol scenarios.

@iskpoptrash aka writes for too many groups to mention. Just know she writes for your faves!! ALL OF THEM.

@smutfictionaddicted aka so nice, so thoughtful, just plain lovely. Writes for multiple groups and writes for poc readers, thick readers, basically she’s out here repping for people who often get left out. She’s amazing, go check her out.

@katrinawritesthings aka death by Jongtae. aka definition of utopia. 

@eorumverba aka all of thee SHINee ships and whether it be smut, fluff, or angst you will be destroyed by it.

@thewritingsinquestion aka I’m going to need to bathe in holy water after reading that. And yes, I will be reading more. I’ll never stop.

@naughtykpopthoughts, @shineewritten@touchmekibum@taeminuet, @kpoppantydrop@bulletproof-bad-writing.

There’s a few more on tumblr I really like and even though they aren’t super active right now I’ll still link them in case they come back. 

@imagine-with-caution@shoeandeye, and  @chlexcer-writes.

Obviously all of these people write for SHINee or have written at least one thing about SHINee. Though some of these people write for a lot of other groups as well. (And a reminder that they don’t just write smut. Some of these people pour their hearts and souls into angst and fluff and other original content!) Read some stuff by these people. You might find a new favorite writer. And if you know them already go read more from them. 

Just remember to show these and all your favorite writers plenty of love. Be respectful and considerate of these humans who have feelings and lives outside of their blogs. Don’t harass them, or send requests to closed inboxes. Leave feedback and let them know that you liked their work.

It’s a new year, let’s make it a good one!  ♡

What You Can Do for Your Mercy (and most Supports)

Here are 10 tips on what YOU can do to help out your Mercy (and most support heroes).

1) If your Mercy has REZ, try to play a bit more aggressively in order to take the point or move/stop the payload. Rest assured that you’ll be resurrected if your team dies, as long as your Mercy can stay safe until that time.

2) Additionally, make sure to group up when Mercy says her REZ is ready. This way, if shit hits the fan and everyone dies, she can swoop in and REZ the whole squad. There’s nothing more frustrating than only being able to bring 1-2 people back to life b/c everyone was too spread out.

3) If you’re not sure what hero to play and there happens to be a Mercy on your team, try to pick someone who might be able to protect her (this goes for any healer tbh). Characters that are good protection for healers are as follows:

  • Tanks - Any of them (Roadhog and Winston a bit less since they don’t have shielding abilities that are as effective as Rein’s shield and charge, Zarya’s bubble, or D.Va’s defense matrix).
  • Defense - Mei (for her walls and freezing) and Junkrat (for his traps).
  • Offense - Genji (for his speed and deflect), McCree (for his flash bang), and Pharah (for her concussive blast and flying out of tight spots).

when i started watching sense8 i thought Rajan’s family pharmaceutical company had something to do with BPO. i mean, Rajan looks a bit too sinister for me: when his father got attacked he was like ‘whatevs’, his insistence to marry Kala (they hadn’t even talked and he was already sending her a thousand flowers). Kala is super beautiful, clever, and everything… But he didn’t know her, you get what i’m saying? It’s too utopic him being a billionaire and such a kind and comprehensive person. 

Rajan’s family thinks in a modern way, which is cool, they seem good people. But as Straczynski (One of the creators of Sense8) said “They [BPO] do that because any group which has access to your innermost thoughts, to whom secrets are easily penetrated, represents a massive threat to any government on the planet. We didn’t want to have a mustache-twirling bad-guy organization — these are people who believe they’re doing the right thing.” And remember how leaders all over the world are trying to do something about sensates? With the help of the top companies from each country…

What if season 2 gives us a huge plot twist regarding Kala’s storyline?

or maybe i just want Kala in a difficult situation so i can see more of her badassery while saving herself
