this is really what people want

Listen I know we all love bilingual Lance and boy oh boy guess who’s here with some bilingual headcanons!!

•Lance used to speak fluent spanish as a child, but when he started going to public school, he just … Lost that ability.
•Lance can understand some words and phrases in spanish but doesn’t really know how to form sentences. (he knows all the cursewords and tries to use them as much as he can bc that’s Cool™)
•He can understand enough words to get the gist of what people are saying.
•Lance started to feel kind of detatched from his family since he couldn’t speak spanish and basically everyone else (save for the younger kids) could.
•His family doesn’t put any effort into teaching him spanish bc they want him to be more American than Hispanic (a sad truth that I unfortunately experienced)
•Lance starts to take spanish classes seriously when he gets to high school. He slowly learns how to form proper sentences, and he’s at the top of his class bc he wants to connect with his family language-wise. He tries hard, and grasps the language without any help from his fluent-spanish-speaking parents.
•One time, he had to do a project in spanish class, but he didn’t know how to form the sentence he wanted. So, he goes to his parents for help.
•Big mistake.
•His parents are from different regions of south america, so they speak different forms of spanish. Whatever he’s learning at school is. Not. The same.
•He had to go back and forth from his dad to his mom for one goddamn question like holy crow.
•"No, no! Your father is wrong! I speak PROPER spanish!“
-That was an actual quote from my mother it’s legit.
•His father ends up being right. At least in terms of School Spanish.
•Lance’s teacher ended up taking points away anyway bc she knew he wasn’t capable of speaking in such eloquent, complex spanish.
•He once went over his vocab list with his fam since he forgot his spanish dictionary at school. Another mistake. Don’t ask your different-spanish-speaking parents for translations when they’re in the same room.
•They spent more time arguing about the translation than actually translating.
•Mom: “Aficion? I’ve never heard that word in my life! It doesn’t exist!”
•"It means ceiling fan, mom.“
•M: “Oh! Then you mean ‘hincha’!”
•Dad: “Hincha?! Are you trying to teach our son slang?!”
•"Wait, that’s slang?!“
•"Well, ya-”
•D: “Aficion es the tiki tiki.”
•M: “No. La tiki tiki es la hincha!”
•They slowly seep into full spanish and Lance is watching on in amusement.
•He ends up texting his aunt about the right answer, and she tells him that it’s aficion.
•Mom loses the argument.
•He has a presentation in class for an oral test. He knows he has a great accent and great understanding of spanish, but when he goes up to speak, he can’t say anything.
•Everything comes out slow and stuttered, but he still gets an A+ bc his pronunciation is on point.
•There’s a non-hispanic/latinx kid in his class. They get straight A’s and speak faster than Lance. Lance is jealous of them. It’s not fair that a person who isn’t surrounded by latin culture can speak it so well, while he can’t.
•They’re the top 2 in the class, but Lance is always second. He’s always second in everything.
•Eventually, Lance learns enough Spanish to understand full sentences. He gets a giddiness in his chest when he can understand EXACTLY what is being said in spanish. He loves it.
•Even when his parents are scolding him in spanish, he tries his best not to smile bc he UNDERSTANDS!! •He tries to get his parents/family to communicate with him in Spanish more bc he’s so proud that he can FINALLY understand them. He feels connected to them again, and loves the feeling of embracing his heritage at last.
•Then … His family asks hin why he never talks back in spanish.
•Lance is still shy and insecure about his spanish, bc sometimes he makes mistakes. And sometimes, fluent speakers are not the nicest when it comes to that. He’s afraid they’ll make fun of him bc he’s still learning.
•He goes to a restaurant that has people who only speak spanish in it. He then has to order from the menu.
•He asks for a soda. When the waitress leaves, his entire family is beaming at him. He asks why.
•They gush about his perfect pronunciation and format. They’re proud of him. They had no idea he knew it so well.
•Lance is almost brought to tears bc his family is just as proud of him as he is - especially on something so important to him.
•He talks and laughs with his family at dinner again after that.
•When he gets in space, he tries to keep himself knowledgeable in spanish. He doesn’t want to forget again.
•He listens to old spanish radio shows and songs all of the time. He listens to sports, no matter which kind, in spanish.
•He tries to teach the other paladins Spanish. He grins when they start cussing under their breath in spanish. Sometimes, the paladins will just slip into it and they’ll forget that they’re speaking another language bc it’s so second-nature to them.
•But Lance notices, and it feels a little more like home.

This calms me down so much

Stay safe everyone!

Edit: People are sending me messages about only caring about Dan and Phil. Really guys? Of course I care about all the other people in London at the moment! I just wanted to be sure that they were alright because they are the only people I ‘know’ that live in London. Do you really want to blame me for that? They mean a lot to me and the fact that I wanted to make sure that people I care about are safe is something I should be ashamed for is absurd. 

I am really sorry for everyone who lives in London. What happened was terrible and I hope that everyone will be alright. I understand that some of you are shocked and maybe some of your loved ones were there. These are difficult things and I totally understand that. I care about every single person who lives on this planet and I don’t want to be harassed about “Only caring for my faves” because that is not true.

For the last time, I am really sorry if this made some of you angry or sad. I didn’t mean it and I want to apologize.

I kinda feel for Keith though, I mean he’s over here holding hands with Lance and cradling him in his arms

(Not to mention that Lance totally forgot about this)

Flirting with him

Making it painfully obvious that he has feelings for him

He’s doing all he can people, and then Lance doesn’t even notice any of this, he just flirts with Allura right in front of him

(It’s really no surprise why Keith is always making that face)

Kisses mice behind his back (pfftt)

And then this is literally what he gets in return

So honestly, you really can’t blame him for always acting/looking so done and like he wants to severely injure Lance 

It’s relatable

rustingroses  asked:

Is there a particular character you find easier or harder to write?

Depends on the day, the story, my mood. As far as particular kinds of characters… that’s a stumper. I just have to watch that I don’t write the kinds of characters I dislike as one note. I have to make them a full human being. Given my prejudices, that’s not always easy. 

I really dislike bigots. I dislike liars. I dislike politicians who tell you what you want to hear and then go and do something else. But general types of characters I have consistent trouble with, not really. Just remember that they’re people.

ROBRON POSITIVITY

Yep, that time of day again! I’m keeping this up! Today is simply a reminder of how much they love each other. Robert messed up, but can we remember that he set up a wedding in less than 24 hours to give Aaron everything he wanted? To make him happy before he had to face something really difficult?

It’s okay to be upset about what happened, but  we have to remember both men are going through horrible times and people make mistakes. People forgive these things in real life, so we can’t refuse to forgive it of a fictional character. Rob wasn’t jealous or Rebecca last night, I saw more annoyance because he knew what she was trying to do.

We know who Rob is as a character! If he wanted Rebecca, he would have kept things up, he’d have pursued it. He wouldn’t have told Chas. He wouldn’t have attempted to tell Aaron. He would have went back for more. He didn’t. BECAUSE HE LOVES AARON.

This is what we need to remember.

I need to find a man I truly feel comfortable around. Let me take my time opening up sexually. I’m tired of feeling rushed. I hate it. I want to go on dates and run errands together. Come home after getting caught in the rain and take a bubble bath. Nothing really sexual about it; we admire one another’s bodies as we embrace and kiss in the warm water that surrounds us. Dry off and make a meal together while dancing around in the kitchen to our favorite songs. We’ll cuddle up until we nod off happily inside a makeshift fort as the strung up Christmas lights peek through the sheets. I dream of weekends like this so much it hurts. / What hurts even more is that I’m stopping myself from letting it ever possibly happen because I tell myself I’m not good enough and I cut myself down until there’s nothing left.

@skipoverthispls asked me how I did the hairline for gahyeon so I made this crappy how-to thing.

Doing this sorta thing is actually really useful, not so much for other people, but for me, because sometimes I’ll do something that I consider really good, but then I’ll immediately forgot how I did it. 

Granted, I’m no hairline master, but this is better than what I’ve done in the past.

I guess if anyone wants to ask me how I draw something in particular, send an ask or whatever and I’ll try and get to it :)

Huge thank you to Jenji Zedlav for taking these rad candids of me! 

When I was younger, low self-esteem made me self-conscious about my photo being taken. A lot of that still remains, but seeing myself really happy in photos always remedies some of that. 

The funniest thing about these photos is that there were 2 people on either side of me holding the flowers. It was hard to explain what I wanted, but they got it just about right. (:

It's just dat I wanted to tell you I REALLY like the way u look at ships&other ppl opinions. 2 d ago I watched MV w/ one ship&I wrote that I liked it (cause its really cool)&also dat i don ship them.&an h I had to face with many insults (some even called me a slut like wtf)&Im still really confused like Were from the same fandom so Y just wanted to tell u that I really like u so if you have a bad day remember dat many people not only enjoy your work but Also likes you as Creator so keep goin Ma

Thank you so very much! I think it’s always important to respect other people’s opinions as long as they aren’t putting other people down. Everyone’s different and we can all like different stuff and what use is it when I’m rude to people who ship something just because I don’t like it? I understand there’s a huge debate about ‘problematic ships’ but tbh I think that discourse got way out of hand. I always try to keep this blog a peaceful space that’s respectful to everyone. Thank you and sorry that you had to experience such an unnecessary thing. I love you!

Looking at spoilers for the next​ upcoming episode pissed me off. Please for the love of God, DO NOT LET DANNY GET BACK TOGETHER WITH RACHEL. That is a no no. This woman has tried to keep his child away from him, moved away to another state thousands of miles away from home, LIED ABOUT FATHERING CHARLIE FOR 3 YEARS. What really blows me is some people want them together. I’m like WTF man. Why would anyone want a toxic ass relationship like that? It’s worst than Steve and Catherine getting back together. Either let McDanno happen(I wish), show the guys working on their current relationships, or cast women that has some chemistry with the 2 leads. Why are PL and the writers trying to force these toxic ass relationships is beyond me.

anonymous asked:

I'm not a native english speaker so noticing different accents is not that easy, but I've seen some other Irish people saying that Katie's accent doesn't sound 100% Irish sometimes and you said in another ask that Katie herself has mentioned it several times before. Has she mentioned why? And does her brother sounds like her? I've been trying to pay attention but to me british and irish sound REALLY similar so I can't tell them apart. I love they way she speaks no matter what. Just curious

Hey anon! Sorry for the delay. I have links for you, so I didn’t want to answer on mobile! To my knowledge, Katie has never mentioned any specifics about her accent other than the fact that is comes and goes. She has also mentioned that many people don’t believe she is Irish just from hearing her speak. She talks a bit about that in this article here. In my opinion, her brother’s accent seems a little thicker, but that could just be me. You can be the judge if you’d like to see a video of them together here!

But I am with you, her accent and voice are absolutely perfect!

request by @gryffindorkx: “a gryffindor girl and ravenclaw boys friendship!”

  • they met in the library. he had a stack of books on healing charms in front of him, but was reading a copy of a muggle science magazine. she was running through the library, ten minutes until class started. his books went flying, and so did she, both landing hard on the floor.
  • every morning, he sits at the Gryffindor table. he eats eggs and toast, she eats pancakes with syrup. he talks to her about nothing at all, and she listens.
  • every evening, she sits at the Ravenclaw table. she eats whatever is being served, and often two of it, and he eats everything. unless it has onions in it. or mustard. or bananas. or cabbage. or fish. or mushrooms. or, well, a lot of things.
  • “Logically speaking, mushrooms are evil.” “Evidence?”
  • he spends three hours in the library researching dark magic involving mushrooms. 
  • she plays on the quidditch team. he leaves notes on new maneuvers to try in her bag when she isn’t looking. she pretends to be offended, but reads every one, and by fifth year she’s the captain of the team.
  • “What happened in history of magic yesterday?” “No idea.” “No idea? You’re supposed to be the intelligent and wise one here!” “Intelligent and wise, not immune to boredom and willing to memorize the names of every goblin king.” “So it was goblins, then?”
  • she gets pretty good at getting into the Ravenclaw common room by sheer willpower.
  • “What belongs to you but is used by others?” “My room. I share it with three other people. The girl in the bed next to me, Anna, she’s Scottish, and she likes swimming. One time I found her in the lake, but I could see the squid approaching, and-” 
  • eventually the door swings open out of sheer irritation.
  • he spends hours helping her study for her tests, and not a minute studying himself. they both still mostly pass. 
  • his parents are calculus teachers. she spends Christmas with him for one year, and becomes entirely convinced muggles are smarter than wizards will ever hope to be. 
  • the last day of seventh year, they both sneak up to the astronomy tower, and spend all night looking at the stars. 
  • “I’m going to name that one after you.” “There’s nothing over there.” “Nothing that wizard telescopes can see. Yet.”

I frequently see short text posts praising Joan and wishing for the universe to bestow Joan with a girlfriend already or affirmations that she’s a wlw, all of which are absolutely wonderful, and I want to ask anyone who has any thoughts on it, what is your ideal, dream situation for Joan? Living situation, spouse or no spouse (who you ship her with and why), her sexual orientation, children or no children, any change to her job(s), hobbies (besides baseball and jogging), more pets or different pets… change in hairstyle or wardrobe… tattoo ideas…

I’m just really curious of other people’s Joan Watson headcanons?

Guys, suicide is not a joke. Telling people to kill themselves is not OK. Just because you're insecure about your own sad life, does not in any way give you permission to tell someone that everyone hates them, and that the world would be a better place without them. What if they took it to heart and actually killed themselves? Do you really want to live with that guilt for the rest of your life? What if they had a shot at finding the cure to cancer? Everyone is SPECIAL, UNIQUE, IMPORTANT, LOVED, AND MOST OF ALL WORTHY OF LIFE. Everyone deserves a chance to make their mark on the world. Give all people LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, and please use SELF CONTROL. If you feel the need to tell someone to die, get help.

one thing that really pisses me off that so many people on tumblr seem to do is say shit like “i dont like my boyfriend so i’m gonna be a lesbian now” like what the fuck. you don’t get to just choose your sexuality whenever you want that’s not how it works. i understand if you slowly realize over time that you’re actually a lesbian or anything really but you don’t get to just pick and choose whatever sexuality you want to be whenever you want.

anonymous asked:

Should I feel bad for sorta not feeling angry for netflix's death note? Like the story of death note can be done anywhere so it doesn't really feel like whitewashing more like a retelling? Like I could understand if it took place in Japan but it obviously doesn't? Idk I feel Im wrong about this.

Tbh I am not here to tell you what you should feel about it but do consider if you only feel so removed from it because you’re not affected by the whitewashing of the story. Asian folks, especially Asian American people, STRUGGLE to be cast in general and in THEIR OWN STORIES because people want their pop culture, media, and cultural contributions but not them. They literally could’ve had it still take place here but cast Japanese Americans but they were lazy and made it about a white boy named Light *Turner*.

Consider if your indifference is caused by distance from the issue at hand.

I think the writers can see how much people ship bughead and how popular they're becoming, I can't see them ending them for the love triangle.

regardless of betty and jughead’s relationship, i don’t think the betty/archie/veronica triangle is something they really want to explore outside of what we saw in eps 1 and 2. they don’t want a boy coming between them and causing tension like that. they want their betty and veronica to be friends pure and simple. not rivals. –i hope they stick with that because i think it was a really good choice
