Remember when Marvel superhero books were about characters as much as story and given room to breathe so we could have occasional recurring characters like black physically disabled dancer-turned-instructor Stevie Hunter, who didn’t help anyone fight anything except their own teen angst and poor muscle tone.
There’s this guy I know who makes me feel and seem very aggressive and insecure. There are actually a few of those And I hate being that way because that’s not who I am as a person But with them somehow every time I get mad, I argue. But I can’t help it, I can’t just let the things they say pass. They aren’t bad people but they are people with strong foundations. Strong foundations of ideas about people based on things way back in the past I might now be on the 15th floor they don’t realize, They still go back to the 3rd floor they met me at and built an image of me in their mind.
There are some who say things even though I have asked them a dozen times to not like ‘calm down’ or ‘relax’ Like somehow when I am being assertive or specific in my opinions and expressing something clearly I am being aggressive and ‘need to chill’. Why can’t people have a conversation and not get threatened when the reply is more than a few words or when the opinions don’t match?
Then there are those who seem to think they know better about me than I know myself And I agree I don’t know myself all that well but that how much ever I know is more than anyone else They insist on making me agree to their opinions of me, of saying yes to feelings I don’t even feel.
They aren’t bad people, they are my friends. And I haven’t honestly, sadly, come across many who would pass this test.
1) I really love the imagery around the site of the light of creation in the mushroom planet, it’s introduced as ‘grotesque’ and then what griffin describes is like, straight out of a horror thing, he’s got a pretty simple style of narration that really conveys a certain vibe really effectively - subtle music, not much change in inflection or delivery, but the content’s arresting
2) merle at the end of the mushroom planet.. wtf.. I def started crying. Merle really starts off overshadowed by Magnus & Taako but nowadays he keeps getting some real good character moments that also kind of bring attention to stuff he’s done in the past, and maybe it was something you didn’t really think about, but now you’re more aware of it you’re like.. wow.. merle…
3) ok the music for the world theyre at in the second half started playing and I was like, huh, I’m instantly sold on this, for some reason I’m really feeling some kinda way, I can feel An Emotion welling up, and when he started describing the inhabitants I was like OH FUCK I’M ALWAYS RIGHT HOLY SHIT and anyway I’m just so… emotional… there isn’t really anything to be emotional about I’m just emotional. Anyway that’s where I am now bye
I couldn’t help myself after I saw the gorgeous art @saniika did of crying victor and comforting yuuri wrapped around each other and so here it is! I tried something different this time: it’s present tense narration so I’m not sure how it turned out but I’m pretty happy with it uwu I hope you all enjoy this and pls go shower saniika with all the love!!!!!!!
So… the day before yesterday I posted that I’d be opening requests for a limited time when my new writing blog @writings-by-cl got to 450 followers. I’m almost reaching the goal, so if you haven’t followed it and want to request, please do it now. 😄
I know I haven’t updated in a while, but I’m working on projects even though I haven’t published anything. Besides, life has been keeping me busy, but I know you guys understand that (you guys are so amazing). I’m doing my best despite everything and I couldn’t do it without your support! 🙇🏻♀️
My ask is reopened for a while now, so you can send asks, questions and etc. I might not be able to answer right away, but I always do. ☺️ Your ask doesn’t have to do with sex or smut, alright? You’re welcome to talk about whatever.
Also I’d like to apologize for when I was away and, beforehand, for future periods that I can’t/won’t be able to regularly publish new stories. I’m trying my best and I know it’s frustrating to keep waiting, so I’m sorry, I really am. Thank you so much for all of you that have been here through thick and thin. The fact that you didn’t leave, means a lot to me. Your likes, reblogs, feedback, tags and asks also are very important to me. Honestly, these gestures are like fuel to me and stop me from quitting when things get hard. 😌
I know I lack in many, many aspects, specially in vocabulary and spelling. I appreciate that you’re here despite all my flaws, and I’m very grateful when someone takes their time to patiently correct me or to bring a nice comment or constructive criticism.
Thank you so much for this experience in these almost 10 months of existence of this blog!
And thank you kindly to my tumblr friends who help me so much and that I will never be able to fully repay. You guys have my gratitude and you can count on me for anything.
Love from Mobile, 🆑💋
