listen, guys, there is a difference between taking breaks between plot-heavy episodes and literally trying to pass the time between one stevenbomb and another.
the new crystal gems: none of the characters come out of the episode changed, and it doesn’t develop any characters beyond throwaway gags and bad writing.
storm in the room: steven comes out virtually the same as he went in, albeit a little more gaslit by the room’s projection of rose.
gem harvest: nobody learns anything other than the fucking racist uncle who nobody FUCKING cares about.
joy ride: we learn about the cool kids’ relationships with steven. we learn that they, and steven, have family problems, and that they respect steven for being able to handle his emotional baggage.
log date 7 15 2: we get to take a look at steven’s world through peridot’s eyes (WHICH IMO IS THE FIRST EPISODE THAT DIDN’T REVOLVE AROUND STEVEN FOR THE MAJORITY AND IT WAS REFRESHING BUT I DIGRESS) and we get to learn what she gets up to! it shows the friendship between garnet and peridot and shows how it comes about. we learn peridot is uncomfortable with fusion but that she wants to learn.
tiger millionaire: “I want to tell you Purple Puma’s backstory. He was the wildest cat in the jungle, so wild, the other cats couldn’t take it. So she, I mean he, went to look for somewhere he fit in, somewhere with other people who felt misunderstood.”

“I wish I didn’t have to leave,” Gavin whispered into Ryan’s robes as the two tightly embraced. Ryan took a deep breath and squeezed his eyes shut.
“This past month has been truly wonderful, Gavin.” Ryan cleared his throat, slowly pulling away so that he could hold the young jester by his shoulders at arm’s length. “But you must return to your own kingdom now with King Geoff.”
Gavin sighed, looking up at Ryan forlornly, but he nodded. “Saying goodbye is never fun,” he mumbled, taking a step backward. Ryan let his arms fall back to his sides and watched as Gavin turned and began to walk toward the carriages where Geoff and his knights were waiting, head hung low.
“I love you,” Ryan blurted out after him. Gavin jumped and spun back around in surprise, eyes wide. And for just a second, King Ryan did not care about who was watching or how improper his feelings towards the other man might be.
Key: Y/N = Your Name, L/N = Your Last Name, H/C = Your Hair Color, E/C = Your Eye Color
Warnings: Cursing (I naturally curse a lot and it comes out in my writing sometimes. Sorry.)
Summary: Reader has been having a tough time and needs an escape. She loses control when she is stopped. Bucky has to try to calm her down.
Author’s Note: I know the title is weird. I’m not very good at titles. If you have a better idea, please suggest it! Haha!
This is my interpretation of the characters and the reader is one of my own creation. I leave the names and such open so you can put your own name and features in or you can create your own. I know this may not please everyone, but I’m write for myself. I hope people will enjoy this fanfic, but I know that you can’t please everyone.
If you would like to be tagged in any future pieces, please let me know! And as always, feedback is greatly appreciated!
You really weren’t feeling okay today. You needed an escape from everyone for even an hour. You usually talked to your boyfriend, Bucky, about this type of stuff. But he was training with Wanda and Sam. Not wanting to be a bother to anyone, you decided to just go walk around and see where you end up.
Putting your laptop in your bag and grabbing your keys, you were about to head out when Steve stopped you.
“Hey, (Y/N). Where you off to?” He asked over his shoulder while he worked on lunch for everyone.
After 123456789 days binuksan ko na ulit notifs ng FB ko, medyo sabog, Puro Philippine Collegian at One Bataan hahaha. Kausap ko rin si @earthtonica haha looking forward to see people sa TSAMU this year. Good evening :)
Hey! actually sakura wasn't hated only by Nh, i have non shipper friends that hate her and also narusasu fans. the thing is i have always though narusaku was the only logical endship ( i always saw narusasu as friends/brother) so unless its narusaku or an open ending which would be a good ending too . I have never hated an author like i hate kishi how he ruined everything and threw everything out was unbearable; thank god i don't care about naruto anymore but i still have a place for narusaku
Oh yes, I do know. That’s was a point me and anon touched. She was indeed largely hated but if you ask me, for the silliest of reasons, mostly.
Lol, I believe Kishimoto is currently one of the most hated authors that ever walked on this Earth, haha.
So I finally read Beauty and the Beast and let me just say that it was awesome! I loved it! I wanted to read it earlier, but I can't get myself to start something that isn't finished. Having to wait for the chapters makes me really nervous, so I always prefer for the finished thing.
Haha, yay!! thank you! I’m really glad you enjoyed it! And I completely understand! That’s usually why I don’t like to start posting a story unless I know where I’m going with it or have a few chapters written. I hate waiting myself, I’m so impatient! When I start a good story, I need more!! So I hate to leave all my readers waiting as well, and do my best to get chapters out in a timely manner. Hopefully though, no more chaptered fics for a while now, haha. Going to aim for shorter ones. (Starting with an epilogue to Beauty and the Beast winkwinknudgenudge)
Going off your buzzfeed post, I don't get the big deal. People are entitled to what they think tastes good and what doesn't. Just because a food is from a different culture doesn't automatically make it delicious. The only problem would be if people trying foreign foods show exaggerated and disrespectful signs of disgust like spitting it out and yelling ew or some shit like that
And what you think white ppl do? I saw a video where white people tried our food and made a joke about having drugs in it because haha! Colombia and drugs!
And it’s one thing to be like “oh I didn’t like this” another is to be completely disgusted by it which is disrespectful. Buzz feed have videos of white people doing throw up motions after they try the dumbest thing. Yall need to be more culturally sensitive or stop making videos on other cultures.
…who have been all over Tumblr squealing and gloating in people’s inboxes about the upcoming CY nups. “Haha! They are for sure endgame now! Nannynannybooboo!”
Dudes. Rumbelle have been married for almost three seasons now, and for every minute of that time, most of you guys have been shrieking and gloating that they are not “endgame” or that they shouldn’t be. “Rumple has to die!” “Belle deserves a twuly good man, such as a dead serial killer!” “He/she is so abusive!”
Guess what? You can’t now play the sanctity of marriage card. Engagement/marriage doesn’t make your couple any less of a codependent and, yes, abusive mess (exhibit A: one party attempting suicide to get the other’s attention). And people are going to keep talking about it, hoping that Emma comes to her senses, and if they want to, hoping that she will wake up to her real feelings for Regina.
You’re like the bigots who spent the eight years of the Obama presidency wailing and whinging and now are suddenly claiming the president must be respected. Ain’t gonna happen. :-)
Coda: A note about timing
CY have been dating for somewhere in the neighborhood of five months (10 days in 4A, 6 week gap, 3 weeks in 4B, 6 weeks in Camelot, a week back in SB, sometime in the underworld, and maybe a week and a half in SB). They moved in together during 6.5, or no more than five days before the midseason finale. Their “courtship” (for lack of a better word) covered, generously two and a half weeks if you count Neverland. And of course the whole relationship is based on lies, codependence, and manipulation, and has been punctuated by murder attempts, emotional abuse, and lots more lies.
I’ve seen claims that neither Rumbelle nor Snowing knew each other that long before they got married, either. But let’s look at the time line.
Rumbelle’s first weeks at the DC were when Marian was visibly but not overwhelmingly pregnant with Roland. He’s still four in early S3, about 6 months after the curse break, so Rumbelle met roughly four years pre Curse. And per 3B, Belle was still at the DC when Snowing met. She has to have left almost immediately after that, because Rumple thinks she’s dead when he has Charming put the TL egg in Mal just before Snowing get engaged, and we know that was only about two months later.
Yes, Snowing got engaged about two months after they met. (of course neither of them tried to murder the other or their families.) Charming sent the pigeon to Snow about a month after they met, which led to the whole series of S1 events with the queen on a very condensed basis.
But how long were they engaged? They conducted a war against Regina, beat her, and put her on trial before their wedding.
When Hook shows up in Belle’s cell the day before the curse, we see the hashmarks on the wall indicating that she’s been there years. (I think someone counted and it works out to two and a half years but I can’t find the source.) In any case we know that Snowing’s official wedding was about eight months before the curse (Snow got pregnant on her honeymoon per her meeting with Mal in S4 and Emma was born slightly premature). So Belle was captured about two years before their wedding. WE don’t for sure know when in that engagement period they had their secret wedding but my guess is that it can’t be THAT earliy because it’s not a secret that’s easy to keep.
TL;DR: Rumbelle and Snowing both knew each other for between one and a half and two years before marriage.
To Jey @jeylovestoblog : Happy birthday to my better half in this JeyLy ship. I just wanted to say that I love you from the bottom of my heart, and hope you have an amazing day doing whatever it is your heart’s desire. You are such a strong-minded and strong-willed woman I have ever met, and hope you continue to stay that way. You are a wonderful good friend of mine, and you pretty much know everything there is to know about me, and we haven’t even met in person yet. I honestly hope that one day that we do meet because I am not going to lie, but I kind of want to be squished by your boobs lol (you’re taller than me right? I’m 5′4, so I think I do go up to your boobs or your shoulders haha). OH! I can’t forget your silly/quirky side. You are freaking hilarious, and you are pretty much a walking meme when it comes to BTS haha I love your reactions and can’t believe you are now a gif XD I”m jelly girl!! I could honestly ramble on and on about how much I love you, so I’ll just settled with this tiny drabble!
“Kim!!!” Taehyung shouted, banging on Seokjin and Kim’s bedroom.
Seokjin let out a long sigh and closed his book. He looked over to his peaceful girlfriend, who was currently napping after having to pull an all-nighter. He quickly walked over to their door and flung it open. Seokjin glared at the frantic man, and politely demanded him to be quiet.
Taehyung whined, “But Seokjin! I need to talk to Kim! She knows Jey better than anyone else, and I am in desperate need for advice.”
Seokjin pinched the bridge of his nose, feeling his brain slowly throb against his skull.
“Well, can’t you go ask the other girls? Kim is currently napping, and I don’t want anyone disturbing her much needed rest.” He stated quietly yet harshly, blocking his bedroom door with his body.
Taehyung made a whining noise, “But! But! Jey is going to kill me if she found out I forgot her birthday again!”
“What was that Taehyungie??” Taehyung heard an all too familiar voice say in the sweetest tone of voice. His body instantly froze as he knew who that voice to belong. He hesitantly turned around,closing his eyes shut, as he was immediately greeted with the deadliest glare he has ever witnessed from the love of his life.
Jey narrowed her eyes at her forgetful boyfriend and crossed her arms over her chest, accidentally causing them to be pushed up a bit.
Taehyung eye’s widened at the amazing sight, but soon killed his hormones when his brain reminded him that she was pissed off.
“I can’t believe you forgot my birthday!” Jey bellowed before storming off and slamming the door to their bedroom.
Taehyung winced from the sound of the slammed door. He sadly turned to Seokjin, who was busy chuckling at Taehyung’s predicament, and hung his head low.
I'm pretty new to the world of Cglre and I've noticed a lot of the accounts I've looked at don't really like young cgs. Do you think you have to be older to take in the responsibility of caring for a little?
Pssh. What? Nah. That’s dumb. Most caregivers, especially ones that know they’re CGs when they’re younger, are people like me who have been taking care of other people their entire lives. Being a good CG isn’t something that has an age requirement.
Of course, like in all things, you get better at it with time. I’m a better CG now than I was a year ago. I’ll be a better CG a year from now as well.
I’m 20, and older CGs still turn their noses up at me a lot, haha. Even ones that don’t have kids. (Obviously people who have had real kids are going to be better experienced.) Older male CGs are particularly awful about this. They look down on me because I am young AND female… And then their littles come to me for comfort and little space time. So.
TLDR; Nah. If you do your best and continue striving to always be a better CG, you can be a good one at any age.
wait ppl are sending u anon hate? can I try? Ok your url is missing vowels haha loser bet you think you're so neat with those consonants. i bet if matt martin had a tumblr he would use at LEAST two vowels in his url! one of them might be a 'y' because it would probably have 'mitchy' in it somewhere but still. I'm not good at this but what do you think his url would be? I bet he would have a shitty aesthetic blog
akdlfjsadlf you actually had me laughing at the first part hahaha and he would totally have a shitty aesthetic blog and mixed in would be like “i love canada” shit and also detroit sports. his URL would probably be some mispelling of windsor like windscr or something
I’ve noticed that women and dfab people tend to have a lot of trouble accepting compliments. And no, catcalling is not a compliment, sit the fuck down. I’m talking about genuine compliments.
I went to a gas station today and while paying I noticed that the cashier had green hair. It looked really cool so I said “I like your hair!” Not flirting, didn’t want anything, there was no line so I wasn’t wasting anybody’s time; just a genuine compliment because I liked her hair and she looked like she needed a pick-me-up.
She replied with “Oh haha, yeah, it’s a mess today” and looked embarrassed (I replied with “it looks good!” and left it at that).
This experience on it’s own doesn’t mean much, but it’s one of MANY experiences I’ve had, and it’s something I struggle with myself.
Reacting to “[something about you] is good” with a nervous and often laughed off “no it’s not” is really common among women and dfab people. We’re taught to think less of ourselves and to doubt any evidence to the contrary. Whether it comes from being told that accepting compliments it arrogant, being given backhanded compliments frequently, the experience of being complimented as a joke and losing trust in the sincerity of any compliments, or something else entirely, it boils down to insecurity.
The thing is, you deserve to feel good about yourself.
If compliments don’t do that for you, that’s fine. Not everyone likes being complimented for a variety of reasons, and that’s fine. But if you do want/appreciate compliments, this post is for you.
Backhanded compliments are a manipulation tactic, and complimenting someone as a joke is just plain cruel, but remember that neither of those things happening to you is actually a reflection on you. Someone who behaves like that is fundamentally cruel, and that cruelty has nothing to do with you.
You deserve compliments, and you deserve to feel good about yourself.
If someone compliments you, it’s absolutely fine to say “Thanks!” or even “Yeah. I like [thing about me] too!” If someone IS trying to hurt or manipulate you, you’ve just taken away their power to do so, and if they’re not it’s just a pleasant exchange for everyone involved.
And either way, you get to reaffirm that YOU like you, which is after all way more important than somebody else liking you.
Did Shunsui ever want to be Captain Commander? Or would he, given the chance, rather step down from his position?
— ooc. thank you so much for this question. ;; i think it would have to be a resounding NO. even when given the notice, shoulders were slumped ( at least it seemed like it to me this is all conjecture haha ), there just seemed a depressive air about him. and in one translation i saw the last words were ‘ oh for crying out loud ‘. frankly i think he wants nothing to do with it. the constant barrage of meetings // mountains of paperwork // people constantly asking for things // the incredible amount of responsibility that had just been heaped upon shoulders that had already lost so much was just quite a bit to bear. but he did!
and he would not give the position up. it would be a disservice to the gotei 13 and to yamamoto i’d think. central 46 chose him for a reason and he would honor such a request. although it wasn’t really a request, the way it was worded. i wonder if one could even back out? with the incredibly strict guidelines they have, ridiculous that one can’t even retire?? did i read that right? those that try get put into the maggots nest or something crazy? I DIGRESS.
he would hold the position of captain-commander for as long as his body // mind would allow and do his damnedest to make both jushiro and the ol’ man proud. now the real question is; who would succeed shunsui after HIS death haha.
