*YOOSUNG:

               - I thought…losing his eye was like… enough to show how much he cares about you

               -He’s always making you food and snacks in cute little shapes (especially hearts)

               -When the two of you play LOLOL he’s always giving you the best loot and diving in front of your character to make sure you don’t die

               -Always joining new clubs that either you’re in, or they cover a topic you’re interested in

               -That way, he can spend more time with you and enjoy some of the same things!

               -Not to mention it he actually really enjoys it all and learns something new about you every time

               -He’s even managed to hug you close for long periods of time without turning red or stuttering!

               -But you still! Don’t! See it!

               -You always think he’s just being really nice and a great friend! Sure you secretly like him but you don’t want to ruin the friendship if he doesn’t like you back!

               -Saeyoung’s made it his personal mission to get the two of you together because Yoosung just won’t take initiative and you’re just oblivious as hell

*ZEN:

               -He’s always hanging off of you, how are you not even suspicious?

               -Always has an arm around you, hand on your shoulder, even on your knee when the two of you are sitting

               -For fucks sake MC, he kisses your cheek and holds your hand when the two of you walk anywhere are you DENSE??

               -Always bringing you flowers, chocolates, you name it

               -HE EVEN MAKES UP SONGS TO SING TO YOU

               -He’s so dramatic about everything. Every time you don’t react to his romantic gesture, he’s practically throwing himself to the floor in a sobbing fit

               -He’s even held you by the shoulders, looked you in the eyes, and told you how much he really likes you

               -You just responded with a tilt of your head, innocently asking, “Like…. you like-like me?”

               - hoW HAVE YOU NOT NOTICED BY NOW?????

               -EVEN AFTER THAT, YOU’RE STILL OBLIVIOUS. MC, why. Just, why. He loves you but wOW

*JAEHEE:

               -She’s not exactly surprised that you don’t realize her feelings

               -More subtle with her emotions than the rest of them

               - even jumin is more open about his feelings for you, who would have guessed

               -She’s always inviting you to attend new cafes, or to show you her favourite ones!

               -Also makes you a lot of coffee/tea and cakes!

               -The two of you spend a lot of time discussing books the two of you have read, and theorize about those that abruptly ended

               -Always looking you straight in the eyes, smiling, and will constantly turn a light shade of red

               -But you don’t get it?? Is she getting a fever? Is it even hot enough in here to make her red like that? Is she alright?

               -You’re always putting your hands on her cheeks, trying to see if she’s ill and it just makes her blush 10x more

               -Dammit MC she’s gonna pass out at this rate, get your hands off of her, just notice that she likes you so the two of you can cuddle and she can get over turning as red as she does!

*JUMIN:

               -You’d think it’d be really obvious

               -I mean the man has next to no emotions but when you come around he’s practically a puddle on the floor- how in the world don’t you notice?

               -Always making sure you’re comfortable with anything the two of you do

               -If he invites you to lunch and you don’t like the restaurant, he’ll cancel his reservations and find a new place immediately

               -AND HE DOES EVERYTHING HIMSELF. Not once does he ask Jaehee or another employee of his to set up plans or grab something for you

               -Listens to your opinion more than anyone else’s. He’ll take it to heart and do whatever you suggested (that is if it isn’t drastic)

               -HE LETS YOU PICK UP ELIZABETH? CUDDLE WITH HER? GIVE HER KISSES? DOESN’T THAT TELL YOU HOW HE FEELS ABOUT YOU??

               -The dude tried to move you into his house almost immediately, seriously MC how can you not tell

               -Completely showers you in gifts all the time. If you aren’t there to physically receive them, he’s telling you what he got you and sends you pictures

               -He thinks it’s absolutely adorable that you have no idea, but at the same time it lowkey drives him crazy because he juST WANTS TO KISS YOU, MC. PLEASE. JUST, P L E A S E

 

*SAEYOUNG:

               -This lil brat tries to hide that he’s completely in love with you until he just can’t take it anymore

               -Come on he’s built you Robo-cat, gone over personally to protect you, and a lot more, what do you waNT FROM HIM

               -Sends you memes in the middle of the night because he thinks you’ll find them funny

               -Calls you at night just to talk until he can hear you fall asleep on the other end of the phone

               -He’s also buying you a lot of little things because he thought of you when he saw it, and couldn’t bring himself to just leave it

               -You’re the only one he’ll let drive his babies. HIS. BABIES. MC, COME ON

               -Always looking at you like a love-sick puppy. Whenever you do something completely adorable he gets as red as his hair

               -He’ll lightly brush his hand against yours when the two of you are walking close together, and watch to see if he can actually grab your hand

               -Gives you the Flynn Rider smoulder more times than you can count but all you do is giggle because it’s your favourite movie. Your giggle is like heaven but MC whY CAN’T YOU SEE HE LIKES YOU

               -HE EVEN SINGS THE LITTLE MERMAID SONG “KISS THE GIRL”(or he changes the lyrics to boy, depending) TO GET THE POINT ACROSS BUT ALL YOU DO IS JUMP IN ON HIS MUSICAL NUMBER. One day MC, one day.

*V:

               -He’s gentle with everyone, but you??

               -Well, he’s gentle but he plays around a LOT more

               -Playfully pushes you, pinches your cheeks, he even does gross shit like lick your cheek okay but i do the same

               -Leans close to you all the time. When the two of you talk, he’s leaning into you, staring into your eyes

               -Y'all even spend the night at each other’s houses watching movies or just talking about life

               -How the hell can you not tell that this giraffe loves you??

               -Always taking beautiful photos of you! Well…almost always

               -His favourite photo album is full of pictures of you being goofy, and packed which terrible candid’s of you, but he lOVES THEM SO MUCH MC LOOK AT HOW AMAZING YOU ARE

               -He plans trips for just the two of you so he can take pictures and you can see the sights! Takes you to romantic dinners! Y'all even go to festivals and carnivals together.

               -He’s always holding your hand because he doesn’t want to lose you in a crowd. Or that’s what you think. In reality he just wants to hold your hand; MC please he’s so cute just kiss him already

*SAERAN:

               -He just plain sucks at sharing emotions

               -But he thought he was pretty obvious?

               -Like there are times that you’re the only one he’ll even acknowledge? That’s pretty self-explanatory there MC

               -He takes you out for ice cream all the time, walks around town, whatever you want. He hates people, he doesn’t willingly go out for that. Unless you want to

               -Always invites you over to just hang out and play some games, watch some movies, or sometimes just to nap

               -Even asks you to teach him how to cook/bake, so he can spend a lot more time with you!

               -Sometimes you give him this dazzling smile that just makes his heart flutter and he can’t even look at you

               -You also like to hug him and he practically passes out every time. It scares you a little bit because you can’t figure out why?? Is he okay??? Are you dead??

               -But he steps out of his comfort zone and hugs you back?? You’re so happy and you absolutely love it! You think that maybe he’s finally becoming more social! You have no idea that he only hugs you because??? It’s you

               -Please just admit you like this man so he can get comfortable MC, he’s too awkward to ask you out himself

anyway. since anon mentioned horror movies. here’s some you need to see

more recent movies:

  • it follows – if you’ve been on tumblr long enough you’ve probably seen some gifs of it. but it’s actually one of the only horror movies in a LONG TIME to make me feel legitimately tense without relying purely on jumpscares
  • the descent – not super recent, but makes you feel VERY claustrophobic. don’t bother with the sequels. they’re garbage made by a different director
  • as above so below – another found footage gem. scarlett is a bad ass bitch and the movie has some visually stunning moments(another one that makes you feel VERY tense and scared
  • the final girls – actually amazing? the perfect mix of silly camp and horror 
  • v/h/s – don’t bother with any of the sequels, the only good segment is the first short from the first movie. its rly good
  • martyrs – BUT ONLY the french version. the american one sucks ass 
  • REC – quarantine is the american remake, but the spanish version is a million times better if you don’t mind subtitles 
  • you’re next – very silly and funny but also a good gory slasher/revenge/horror flick
  • the woman – gory as fuck, but extremely satisfying to watch, plus great soundtrack and acting.
  • antichrist – directed by the same guy who did the nymphobmaniac movies. more psychological horror, but it’s visually STUNNING

classics: 

  • anything with elvira tbh 
  • teeth – if you haven’t seen teeth PLEASE SEE TEETH
  • mullohand drive – im a sucker for lynch so like…duh
  • the exorcist – i actually got to see this in a theater once. it was amazing. 
  • evil dead obvi
  • the fly – it’s gross and disgusting and nasty and a great movie
  • there isn’t really a classic horror movie i won’t recommend except shitty sequels ala nightmare on elm street or halloween and what not. classic horror movies have aged so badly but in such a good way and i love it

the reason why i love sano SO SO SO MUCH is because of the duality of his character.

on one hand, here’s this guy who’s incredibly strong, both physically and mentally. he’s been through literal hell and had to raise himself after suffering through extremely traumatic events. despite that (or because of these experiences), he has a strong sense of morality when it comes to justice and will defend it with all he has. he worked so hard to get where he was when he makes his first appearance and then undergoes amazing character development upon realizing he was headed down the wrong path.

he’s tough as hell. there’s no denying that.

and in typical characterizations, one might expect someone like this to be really hard and macho all the time, on top of other kinds of gross gender stereotypes much too prevalent in mainstream media.

but sano isn’t!! because yes, he’s got that amazing physical strength and can/will fight for what’s right in the blink of an eye…but at the same time, he’s not afraid to be soft and show his feelings, not afraid to get teary-eyed or openly express himself.

he’s extremely dynamic and smart and just a good, good person at the core. he leaps before he looks because he’s so emotionally-driven and i simply ADORE him.

ugh achilles would probably be so grossly in love once him and patroclus finally got together he’d hold his hand every where they went and always introduce him as his boyfriend then go on and on about all the amazing things he does like “did you know he’s in his 2nd year of medical school” and “he’s a published author” (“achilles that was a poem i wrote in 10th grade”) and achilles would take a bajillion selfies with him and their cheeks squished together and giving patroclus kisses and send him cheesy text messages all the time even when they’re in the same room

okay but hear me out here-

•Magnus and Alec as regular college age students au

•Magnus doesn’t bother going to college because his dad is rich as fuck

•you know, one of those soul sucking corporate types

•totally evil, but hey, Magnus doesn’t care because he’s never gonna have to work a day in his life

•but sometimes he still hangs out with his friends on campus

•because he likes the whole vibe of the place

•it’s an old school, the kind that specializes in classical and history degrees

•he would never study there, but the place is beautiful

•he likes to take pictures of it

•actually he loves everything about photography and architecture

•so this is really a perfect place for him

•he just loves how permanent they are

•everything else around him changes, but those photos will last forever

•and one day he’s waiting for one of his friends, a pretty girl with blue hair, to finish class

•it’s a beautiful day

•one of those no clouds, shining sun, sunglasses on, birds chirping kinds of days

•and he’s thinking about the party they’re going to throw that night

•and wondering what the weather is like in Hong Kong (where he thinks his dad is on business)

•(but he’s honestly not sure, he lost track of all the different trips)

•(and to be even more honest, as long as the rent money for his flat keeps showing up each month, he doesn’t really give a damn)

•and he notices that a certain beam of light is hitting the school’s centerpiece (a gorgeous marble fountain that they never turn off, not even in the winter) just right

•it’s like a perfect scene

•but when he takes the picture

•with his big bulky camera that he carries around with him everywhere

•he notices that something just isn’t quite right

•he isn’t sure what it is

•but then someone walks past

•and Magnus thinks he knows what it might be

•so he runs over and grabs this stranger, begging him for a second to please just sit down on the edge of the fountain

•but don’t look at the camera

•and he isn’t really paying attention

•so thankfully he doesn’t notice that the poor stranger is stammering and trying to act cool at the same time

•because, holy fuck, Magnus is really hot, okay?

•but he agrees and Magnus goes to take the picture

•he looks through the lens and finally realizes the gorgeous guy he accidentally picked for this

•like he’s actually perfect

•with the most amazing blue eyes that Magnus has ever seen

•and the picture comes out all gross and blurry

•so oh no, he has to take another one

•(what a shame, more time with the stranger)

•and Magnus gets his picture

•but his friend isn’t quite out of her class yet

•so he asks if this stranger might want to, say, get some coffee or something?

•as a thank you for posing, of course

•that’s totally it

•so they go and it’s absolutely perfect

•he finds out that the boy’s name is Alec Lightwood

•what a pretentious fucking last name

•it’s perfect

•and he studies at the university and magnus is so amazed that this is the first time they’ve ever met

•because seriously how did they not meet sooner than this

•of course the cute boy in the ratty sweater with beautiful blue eyes is also a classics major

•what a dork

•and his phone is from Magnus’s father’s rival company

•which is just a bonus

•and they can barely even stop talking to each other to even order the damn coffee

•and they don’t stop talking when Magnus’s friend repeatedly texts him demanding to know where the hell he is

•he comes to know that it’s also the first and second time that rule follower Alec Lightwood has ever skipped a lecture

•because they managed to talk throughout two lectures

•and just lost track of time

Wow

Just finished binge watching Gravity Falls…How can one show be so amazing, funny, beautiful, mysterious, and a little gross all at the same time? Gravity Falls is the best show I ever saw.

Also song catchy as all heck.

5 WHOLE MONTHS AGO some girl and I drunkenly admitted we were totally into each other and began a completely amazing adventure of friendship, support, and love for one another. It seems so crazy that it was that long ago but at the same time it feels like it’s been even longer with how much we’ve grown together and as individuals since way back in April. Here’s to many more months and many more celebratory posts here on this weird website that started it all.

-
You were looking at the clock, waiting for the slow minutes to pass by. It was almost lunch time and you were looking forward to fulfill your promise to sit with Taehyung today.
Two more minutes…
You were fiddling with your pen and looking at the clock with impatient eyes.
One more minute…
The bell rang and the teacher announced your homework to the class, causing a synchronized groan from the rest of the students. However, you packed up your stuff, and headed off to your lockers, looking around for Jungkook and Soo Yeon. You turned a corner and there you saw them – a little too close together, actually. You continued watching in silence around the corner, as Jungkook shyly leaned forward and gently placed a kiss to her lips, that she reciprocated. Your stomach felt sick – but, you were unsure as to why. This was bound to happen eventually, right? You only wish you weren’t there to witness it all unfold, to watch Jungkook slip out of your life one day at a time. You felt your eyes burning up but, you tilted your head back and tried your best to not cry, no, you refused to cry – you were going to pretend as if you didn’t see anything. You waited for them to pull apart from each other (which seemed like an eternity) and finally made your way towards them.
“Hey,” you said, forcing out a small smile.
“Hi.” They said in unison, and Jungkook coughed a little bit, rubbing the back of his neck, whereas Soo Yeon was red in the face.
“We should start heading to the cafeteria. Taehyung and his friends are probably waiting for us,” you said, looking at Jungkook.
“Oh. Yeah,” is all he said back to you.
You all walked to the cafeteria together, with an uncomfortable silence between the three of you. They chose to ignore it, though it was very present, one could cut through the tension in the air with a knife. It was very apparent to you, or anyone looking, that they’d rather not have you here, that you were the outsider. You took in a deep breath, exhaled, shook your head a little (which caused Jungkook to look at you with his head tilted to the side, chuckling slightly) and opened the cafeteria door, looking for Taehyung. Little did you know, Taehyung was looking for you too. Before you knew it, a tall brown haired male was waving to you, sitting at a table near the middle. You immediately smiled and headed towards him, with Jungkook and Soo Yeon trailing behind you.
“Hi, Y/N! I’m glad you’re here.”
You smiled at him, and after a couple of seconds, realized he was waiting for you to introduce your friends to him.
“Oh! Uh, these are my friends Jungkook and Soo Yeon,” you said sheepishly.
Taehyung smiled and looked at Soo Yeon, extending his hand.
“Nice to meet you, Y/Ns best friend!”
Soo Yeon smiled awkwardly and lightly chuckled, and Jungkook went to shake Taehyungs hand instead.
Actually, I’m Y/Ns best friend.”
Those words stung you a little bit, but you weren’t sure why. You chose to brush it off, looking at Taehyung let out a soft laugh.
“Oh, my bad…” Taehyung said, chuckling awkwardly. He continued to guide you towards his friends, his hand on your shoulder. Jungkook clenched his jaw seeing Taehyung touching you like that, but didn’t say anything. “How could he be so comfortable with skinship already? Didn’t they just meet? Why is he being so friendly? More importantly, why isn’t she saying anything?” He thought.
“These are my friends Jimin, Yoongi, Namjoon, Jin, and Hoseok,” he said, pointing to each male. They were all very friendly and said their hellos, waving to you, Jungkook and Soo Yeon. They were a very attractive group of boys, you had to admit. After a bit, Taehyung sat down and patted the seat he left open beside him, urging you to sit. You smiled softly, opened your lunch, and took your seat. Jungkook and Soo Yeon sat together, opposite of you and Taehyung.

~

You all chatted for a while, and you were honestly enjoying yourself. It felt good, relieving almost, not to be eating in silence, watching Jungkook and Soo Yeon talk without you. Although they were talking privately and secluding themselves from the rest of the group, somehow, it didn’t bother you nearly as much. Whether it was you getting over it or just temporary relief, you didn’t know, nor did you care; you were having too much fun to worry about them right now.
“Yah, I’m going to go get some milk, Y/N, I’ll be right back!” Taehyung said, getting up and smiling at you.
“Alright,” you replied back, and smiled to yourself. The fact that he said your name specifically made you feel good – it wasn’t like you were getting much attention elsewhere. Unbeknownst to you, you were smiling ear to ear and fiddling your fingers just thinking about it – thinking about him.
“Ah, so, Y/N… do you like Taehyung?” Hoseok asked you abruptly, causing everyone to lean closer to hear your response. Even Jungkook stopped talking to Soo Yeon to hear what you had to say. You were a bit taken aback by the sudden question – you weren’t prepared to say the least, you hadn’t even thought about it.
“Well?” Jimin asked, curiosity shimmering in his eyes.
“I, uh, I…” you started to stutter out, but, Jimin quickly went to sit beside you and whispered “Ssh! He’s coming. Just play along!” You were confused as to what was happening.
“Y/N, do you want me to feed you some of your food?” Jimin said, winking. You stood there wide-eyed, with a blank expression, your face heating up.
“Ah, fine, don’t answer me, I’ll still feed you anyways…” he said, inching the spoon (and himself) closer to you. Jungkook just sat there watching, with his hands clenched into fists – but, decided once again, not to say anything. Suddenly, Taehyung came and put the spoon in his mouth instead, rice spilling everywhere.
“That tastes good, Y/N! Did you make it yourself?” He said, looking annoyed and flicking Jimin on the forehead, then proceeding to sit beside you. Jimin just chuckled lightly and moved back to his original spot, looking satisfied with himself. You were just as confused as ever, and told yourself not to think too much about it.  
“Don’t you think it’s a little too early to be acting like the jealous boyfriend, Tae?” Yoongi asked, chuckling slightly and sending a wink towards the both of you. You both looked down and laughed slightly, your face hotter than ever before. Taehyung ignored Yoongi, coughing a little bit and continued to set down two strawberry milks in front of you, urging you to choose one.
“Here, I got these for us. Which one do you want?”
You smiled so big, from ear to ear, causing Taehyung to smile to himself at how adorable you were.
“Hmmm, I’m not sure.” You said.
“It’s not that hard! Just pick from either my left hand or right hand, easy.”
After some careful thought, you picked the left one – (this was the first time you were going to have strawberry milk, even though they were both virtually the same, it mattered a lot to you, for some reason).
“Thank you, a lot.” You said softly, smiling up at him before taking a sip of your strawberry flavored drink.
“It’s good, isn’t it?” He asked.
“It’s amazing! I’ve actually never had strawberry milk before, you know.”
“Well, I’m glad I could be here to enjoy it with you,” he whispered. You giggled and continued sipping on the drink.
“You guys are so gross together, you know,” Hoseok teased. You only stuck your tongue out at him.
“You’re just jealous!” Taehyung said, putting his arm around you jokingly. You stiffened a little bit, but, began to soften up when Taehyung looked at you and gave you a small smile.
Jungkook bit down on his bottom lip, hard.
“They aren’t even together,” he said harshly, looking at Hoseok. Everyone fell silent – this was the first time Jungkook or Soo Yeon said something that was to the whole group, and not their own private conversation. Jungkook had absolutely no clue why he was so angry, why he wanted to stop you from talking to Taehyung, or any of these guys ever again. Maybe he was just being protective? He just wanted to protect you from being hurt, he thought. Or maybe it was something else.

anonymous asked:

Hey, just curious do you know why lots of people don't like one piece post-time skip?

I think I can say quite a bit about this general subject. I got caught up with One Piece shortly before the time skip began, and have been a part of discussing it online ever since. And up until pretty recently, I spent the entire time after the time skip arguing against the idea that One Piece had taken any kind of decline in how good it was. There’s a seriously huge amount of things to say about this subject, so I think I’ll try to organize this by arc: 

Return to Sabaody:

Fishman Island

  • A lot of people felt that the arc dragged on far longer than necessary, and was largely quite boring. The enemies of the arc where weak AF compared to the new Straw Hats, so there was very little tension in the whole thing. And it indeed was a tricky situation, because if the Straw Hats struggled too much then people would be disappointed anyway that they weren’t stronger after spending 2 years training. 

Punk Hazard

  • People started out seriously excited about the arc. Old favorites were coming back, everything was hectic and mysterious and wild, BIG things seemed to be in store with the reveal of Doflamingo’s involvement. And there were a lot of good parts in it through to the end, but pacing eventually became a problem again, and so many of the Straw Hats got little time to shine throughout the arc. Too many chapters dedicated to people running from poison gas, only to find out in the end that it didn’t even matter because literally everyone who was frozen by the gas was still alive and could be saved. That’s the kind of thing that undercuts a whole arc. Oda spent dozens of chapters shocking us with all of these people dying, sacrificing themselves, being used by Caesar and dying for it. Lots of people were skeptical that everyone was actually going to say dead, but lots were also actually believing it. “We’re in the New World now. Things are going to be more difficult than ever, and this is a great way to start that to show us just how serious things will be for the Straw Hats going forward.” Nope, everyone was alive. Things like that, when they happen over and over again, erode people’s ability to actually believe that bad things might happen. The story loses its impact. People stop caring when people “die” or might die because we don’t believe it. 
  • Zoro’s fight with Monet and his interactions with Tashigi. A lot of people were thrilled and loved how badass Zoro was, while a lot of other people were left wondering “wait is it just me or has Zoro forgotten everything that he said to Kuina all those years ago and is now a condescending ass to women?” This is a subject I’ve written about to death, and you can read those posts here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Dressrosa

There is a whoooooole lot to say about this. Thankfully I made a bullet list on my personal blog one time, so I can just copy and paste that. 

  • the arc is excessively long, even though Oda sent half the Straw Hats off the island
  • shoving women into backseat positions for the majority of the arc (there were five different damsels in distress on Dressrosa) 
  • Baby 5′s whole treatment was a massive mess (you can read about that here)
  • terrible treatment of Rebecca’s character in terms of agency (You can read about it Here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.)
  • using the same plot device of “the villain is going to destroy the WHOLE ISLAND unless Luffy can stop him” for the third arc in a row (Birdcage, Caesar’s gas, the Noah)
  • Doflamingo’s extremely lackluster climax as a villain (him standing around being mean to Viola and Rebecca instead of just finishing off Luffy before Luffy could regain the ability to even move) 
  • another boring fight for Zoro where Zoro doesn’t even get a scratch
  • sexism and disrespectful treatment of women being treated as comedic in Franky and Senor Pink’s fight (wrote about that here)
  • For me at least, a very muddled, unsatisfying conclusion for wrapping up Law and Doflamingo’s conflict (which I wrote about starting here)

I think that the most systemic shortcomings of the manga after the time skip are these: 

  • Slow pacing and too many characters. Every arc is super long now. Fishman Island and Punk Hazard were both 50 chapters. Dressrosa was 100 chapters. Lots of time in these were dedicated to people just running around. Oda puts so many characters into this story and as a result, either everything takes freaking forever, or the characters get glossed over and never really get to do anything. 
  • Relating to what was said above, more characters seem to get getting reduced to gags than ever before. Robin has barely had any character development or exploration at all since the time skip (talked about that here). Zoro too. He’s either the same idiot as always, or he’s ~super cool I’m so strong I’ll cut you down in a single strike I’m really cool~. But when it comes to character development, he’s not getting any. Nami at least had some on Punk Hazard, in her interactions with the children there and Tashigi, but other than that she really hasn’t gotten to do much of anything in over 5 years. And of course Sanji has gotten the worst of it. I’d like to imagine I don’t even need to explain. Usopp seems to be the only one who is currently still getting active, major character development. 
  • The sexism in OP seems more pronounced than ever. Again, tons and tons of damsels in distress. Sanji repeatedly trying to exploit Nami’s body, in front of her and despite her repeated protests (serious, look at this junk). Franky and Senor Pink acting disgusting being treated as comedic.  
  • Using the same plot devices over and over again, with the same result in the end. Big bad guy threatens to kill everyone on the island, and everyone looks like they’re about to die but then the day is saved and everyone’s fine. 

So yeah. One Piece seems to have taken a dive in story quality since the time skip. Pretty much the entire manga from the end of Thriller Bark right up to the time skip was fantastic. There was so much going on. There were shocking events at every turn, the Straw Hats struggled so much and met with great failures, there was great tragedy (outside of a backstory for the first time ever), Luffy got so much damn character development, and more. But now, it feels like things are so much slower, so much of what’s happening is more of the same. The Straw Hats are back together after being so shockingly torn apart by Kuma 2 years ago, yet so many of them don’t really get to DO anything, and a good amount of what some of them do get to do is just gross. 

Obviously One Piece isn’t terrible now. There’s still a lot of great and amazing things in it. I still love tons of the characters, I’m still super interested about what’s going to happen next and seeing things revealed over time, things are still making me cry, I still have respect and appreciation for various new characters, and more. We all still enjoy the series, but for a lot of people we’re just not enjoying it as much as we used to. And again, it’s not because OP is terrible now (though some of the stuff, like Sanji and Franky’s gross behavior really is), but it could be better. And I feel like some of that is because of the high hopes I always have for this series. I go into each new arc eagerly expecting the most amazing sequence of events to unfold, and I analyzed and predicted the hell out of things as Dressrosa unfolded, only to see what happened not live up to what we imagined on so many occasions. 

So for the time being, I’ve taken a step back from being as actively engaged in analyzing each new chapter and forming big predictions about the things soon to come. Right now, I feel it’s better for me to not spend too much time thinking about this stuff and just allow things to happen as they happen.

 hey, y’all!!! I’m going to try tarting up my og posts again and I thought this song was very appropriate for such an occasion :-) a lot has happened already and I’m only 3 weeks into the semester! I got accepted into Hamilton’s fly-in program and will be visiting in mid-September!!!!! I feel like this year is gonna be gross but amazing at the same time and I! am! so! ready! to! leave! 

reminder: drink water! get more rest! go easy on yourself!!!!

the neopets thing is weird as hell because like. on one hand I feel bad for the kids on the site having to deal with jerks writing gross stuff everywhere. but at the same time it’s amazing to see a 15-16 year old site known for being child friendly to the point of overbearing (discussing homosexuality is against the rules for fucks sake) devolve into this trainwreck. I could be wrong but as far as I remember back in the early 2000s Neopets’ filter was so tight that you could barely get away with talking about saxophones. How did this happen, who fucked up this badly, it’s fascinating

You will be okay.
Sweetheart, he isn’t everything. I know he is perfect to you, I know you feel like you cant breathe when he’s not yours but do it anyways. Breathe. Take a deep deep breathe. Hold it. Let it out slowly.

Baby, you should take care of yourself. You are your biggest protector. You are the one who feeds you soup when you’re sad, you’re the one who takes care of yourself. Keep doing it. You are worth more than you’ll ever know.

Darling, stop blaming yourself. It isn’t your fault and it isn’t his fault. The things he didn’t like about you you are not to blame for. Be happy. Be gushy. Be stupid. Have loud, idiotic conversations in front of him and when he rolls his eyes, talk louder. He’s not perfect. He breaks people and he bullies them and he sees everything clinically. Just because he can make you laugh doesn’t mean he’s a good person. Your brother can make you laugh. Shows can make you laugh. Your friends can make you laugh. He isn’t the only reason you smile.

Lovely, keep living. Cry over him. Be unhappy. But only for a little while. Remember he was selfish. Remember when he didn’t get what you were trying to say. Remember the time he called a girl gross because she wasn’t skinny. Remember he could have said the same about you. Remember that he is so, so unmatched with you, remember you deserve someone who can read your writing and like it, who takes care of you, who makes you laugh harder than he ever did. You are exceptional. You are dazzling. You are cute and beautiful and the way you write is amazing. You can read faster than anyone and your eyes are a gorgeous color. The way you scream along to songs on the radio is endearing and the way you act with your friends reminds me of sunshine. You are wonderful, and nothing of that has to do with him.

Breathe. You will be okay.

—  what i learned when he broke my heart
Crazy In Love

I wrote this as a reaction fic from New New York. I’m late.

Pairing: Klaine

Summary: Kurt and Blaine have some great make-up sex. Maybe a little bit TOO good.

Blaine was pretty sure he’d never come so hard in his entire life. His limbs were floppy and felt like they weighed a million pounds—he tried to get up, but gravity was just too strong to fight.

“Kurt?” Blaine asked. “Are you okay? I think I’m broken.”

“Mmmmmmmmmmmfffffffff.” Kurt responded from his spot next to Blaine on the floor. “I’m never moving again. That was the best sex ever, Blaine. The. Best. I didn’t know you could bend like that. Hell, I didn’t even know I could bend like that.”

Blaine laughed. “Yeah, we were both pretty bendy. I can’t feel my legs though.”

Kurt smiled. “I think we should have epic fights more often. The resulting sex is fabulous.”

Mireille: Hey! How was dinner?

Saffron: Daddy asked Mummy to marry him but Mummy said no and now Daddy’s really upset. And Mummy has to walk home.

Sybilla: And we had lobster! It was yummy. But kind of gross. 

The girls run off to play video games in Sybilla’s room and Mireille takes Harry downstairs to her bedroom so they can have some privacy. Harry is amazed that her room looks exactly the same as it did when they were teenagers.

Harry: It’s like being stuck in a time warp! Remember all the pillow fights we used to have? And that time I split my head open when I fell off the bed? I think that’s still some of my blood on the wall over there. Heh heh. Good times!

Mireille: Um, yeah. Do you want to talk about what happened with Anita tonight?

Harry: No thank you. I’d rather just lie here and close my eyes and think about all the happy memories I have of this room.

Mireille: Having to get 17 stitches in your head was a happy memory?

Harry: It was awesome.

anonymous asked:

That he stopped smiling after looking of camera was just too sad :( that was like a slap in the face that remembered me that they didn’t choose this. They didn’t choose to be closeted and Louis didn't choose to change himself to be less flamboyant. I feel sad now…

Hi Nonnie,

I know.  I got upset last night when I saw this (as you obviously saw).

Whenever I see Louis purposefully censor himself it upsets me.  When I see him censor his smile or happiness, it breaks my heart.

Last night I saw this:

And it reminded me way too much of this:

Honestly, it pains me to see someone who shines so bright have their happiness taken away.  And you can see it.  You can actually see it clear as day.  In both cases, he was smiling big at his boy and then looked off camera and immediately stopped and was either frowning or looking agitated.  It’s awful.   And I’m sorry if my meltdown over it made you sad.  It’s basically the only thing that I ever get negative about.  The affects of the closet scare me and make me very upset on their behalf.  I think they are both so lovely and to have had to actually alter ones personality reeks of psychological damage to me.

Having said all of this, I don’t want you to be sad because I firmly believe they are nearing the end of this shit show.

Here are some really important recent moments to put that in perspective and to make you smile again:

loOk at his face, LoOk at him, this is Harry watching old footage of him and Louis playing footie.  Unbelievable.  They are so in love that I don’t know whether I’m inspired or grossed out.

Even more recent, SAME PLANE. SAME PLANE. DELIBERATELY SEEN TOGETHER TRAVELING TOGETHER ON THE SAME PLANE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 84 YEARS

BONUS: This is actually them when the cameras aren’t around:

(No but seriously how amazing is Jess @ prettytruthsandlies???)

And the most amazing thing is that they’ve literally been there for one another SINCE GO

ALSO PLEASE REMEMBER THE DAGGER!!!!!!!!

They’ve been together since the very beginning.  They’ve stayed together the whole time, being strong for one another, loving one another and defying all odds.  They’re ready to run now and I think they will be able to move past these unhappy moments to much happier times and I am SO ready for them to live free and happy.  So please don’t be sad Nonnie.  They’re gonna make it.
