this was supposed to be so much prettier

He seemed perfect, almost unreal, and I suppose that was the cruelest part about him, it was the devastation that occurred when I realized that, he wasn’t perfect, and that those same eyes, that would look at me like I was the only hope, were looking at another girl that way, a prettier girl, a girl that didn’t have so much to fix. I guess I had my chance, but then again, so did he, and no matter how many times I say that it’s my fault, that I was the stupid one, I will never truly blame it all on myself, because he is the one who walked out too soon, so soon that he never even got to see that he never had to fix me, cause I was in the midst of fixing myself, he never got to see me heal myself, to witness a miracle, that was in his honor.

Maps in a Dress

oKAY i was recently reminded of Gotham Academy and especially the little friendship established in #7 because man Maps and Damian make the cutest friends ever. And then i remember this fic i read about Damian inviting Maps to a gala about how Maps showed up in a 3 piece suit, and Damian is so confused like “I’m supposed to be the one in the Armani?” 

I mean HEADCANONS ON THAT THOUGH!

- Damian might find it slightly strange that Maps would wear a tux, unlike the other girls who always wears dresses, but he totally respects her decision.
- And then they got older, and Maps might grow to like dresses (i mean perks of being girls is having options for both dress and pants like why not take them?)

He just pops up beside Emmet and leans against the man, a huge grin on his face as he hands the man a white rose. "Saw this and thought ta myself, 'I've seen prettier.' Then came right over cause I needed ta prove to the flower who was right. What's cookin' good lookin'?"

“O- Oh!” Emmet seems surprised by Cujo’s sudden appearence, and even more so by the flower in his hands. It’s a beautiful white rose, one that looks like it could have been made out of snow.

“N-not much I suppose…” He looked around, not seeing any needing patrons, and then turned his attention back to the other man. “It’s so beautiful, thank you..”

You're insecure about your body (Luke)

A/N: you are all absolutely beautiful, just the way you are.

“Babe! Are you coming?” Luke, your boyfriend, yells from down stairs. You are supposed to spend the day at the beach with him and his bandmates, they just got home from a six months long tour, but you can’t stop the few tears that escapes your eyes when you stand in front of the mirror.‘I can’t go out like this, everyone will see me with them, and think that they deserve so much more than me, and they’re right. I’m ugly and fat, and Luke definitely deserves someone prettier and way skinnier than me.’ you think to yourself. You thought that maybe this new purple bikini that you bought a couple of days ago would make you look better, but you were wrong. You are so caught up with hating yourself and contemplating if you would just tell Luke that you’re sick and can’t come or something, that you don’t hear the door to your bedroom opening. 

“Y/N..” You turn around and are met with Luke staring back at you with sad eyes. You quickly whipe the tears off your face, but it was too late, Luke had already noticed that all too familiar look of judge and self hatred toward yourself. He walks up to you and looks at you before he kisses you deeply on the lips, making your stomach tingle. You are so in love with Luke, but you really don’t want to put him through this anymore.

“Turn around.” He says quietly. You slowly turn around, and are met with your reflection staring back at you again. You quickly shut you eyes.

“Open them Y/N.”

“No.” You protest, the fear of seeing yourself again is too big.

“Please, for me?” He pleads, and you slowly but surely open them again, cringing immedately.

“You know what I see in that mirror?” Luke asks. You shake your head, 'cause honestly you have no idea what he possibly sees in you.

“I see the most beautiful girl in the world. She is absolutely wonderful. And I get to call her mine, which makes me the luckiest and happiest guy on the planet.” He says, looking you in the eyes. “Never change for somebody else. You are marvelous just as you are. So continue being marvelous because you deserve to be. Continue being you.”

Even more tears are streaming down your face now, and you can’t seem to stop them. 'How did I ever get this lucky?' You think. You turn around and look at your boyfriend, before you throw you arms around his neck and give him a hug.

“I love you.”

“I love you too princess. Now what do you say, shall we go to the beach?”

MASTERLIST

The Art of Gintama | Part 1

The last arc in Gintama had such a good art that I almost forgot that Sorachi used to be a rather okayyyy. Back then people were complaining about hisbart and now look what happened. It’s amazing how much he improved. In part 1 I’m going to show you guys a few characters and how they changed over the time. In the next part there will be more characters.

Gintoki the main character changed a lot. In the first chapter he looked so young now he looks like he’s supposed to do. A middle aged adult. I really like the changes and love his current design. Specially in the fight scenes Sorachi manages to make him look so badass.

Shinpachi didn’t changed thaaat much. But the minor changes are still good. The hair and his face improved.

To be honest I also liked Kagura’s first design. But I prefer the new one way more. She’s much prettier and cuter. My favorite female character can be badass while looking innocent lol.

Tae Shinpachi’s sister. Her first design was horrible. I’m really glad that he changed her. They almost look like different characters now lol.

Just like Gintoki Sorachi made Hijikata looks more older which was a great decision. He’s beside Gintoki the most important male character in Gintama and this baby face would be horrible.

The sadist didn’t changed that much either. His hair and face improved a bit. The shape of his eye are probably the biggest change.

Kondo the leader of the Shinsengumi. I think the only thing which changed is the shape of his face/head. Either way he looks better now.

Takasugi the main villain was also one of the character who looked horrible at first imo. I’m glad Sorachi changed this weird hair he had at first. I love his design now.

You could say Kamui didn’t changed at all but he doesn’t needed to. The moment he was introduced his deskgn was great. The psycho with his innocent smile.

Actually I planned to talk about Tsukuyo in the next part… But since it’s Tsukuyo I rather have her in the first part. My second fav female character after Kagura. Not many changes but she got even prettier.

As you see Sorachi improved a lot. But not only did he improved the character designs but also the backgrounds etc. Though assisstants could be responsible for the backgrounds not sure. Anyway more coming in part 2.

Bayview is so much more prettier in person, not that I expected anything less. The only thing that is worrying me is potentially getting lost, so, if anybody wants to show me around I would be forever grateful. I’d do it alone but that would probably end up with me camping out on the street somewhere at night, because my sense of direction is horrible, and I wouldn’t make it back home. Hi, I’m Lily. I’m pretty awful at introductions. Between that and my horrible sense of direction, I suppose you could call me a keeper.

Dear TRANS GUYS,

If you’re worried that you just aren’t masculine enough, that you don’t pass,
if someone calls you pretty and it makes you think that you’re failing, remember this.
In many species, the male is much prettier. The male cardinal is beautiful, and the female ones are the color of mud. Still very beautiful, but not as colorful as the cardinal. Have you seen a male peacock? Beautiful birds. The female ones? Not as colorful, not as show off-like, which is typically a female stereotype. The male angler fish is beautiful, and the female by comparison, is somewhat dull. (Still beautiful. All fish and birds are beautiful) (don’t want to offend any birds or fish)
The males are really pretty and “feminine”. Men are typically the prettier ones, with longer eyelashes and such. That’s why a lot girls wear makeup, to compete with the boys who are pretty without it. (However to you girls reading this, you’re beautiful, and this is in no way meant to hurt or attack you)
So if you look “too feminine” to be a guy, you’re wrong! You’re just that much more of a guy.
I love you. Be strong my brothers.

“Hi.” Draco smiles widely the moment she opens the door–and the video absolutely did not do her justice, she’s much prettier in person–and extends his arm, presenting her with a bouquet of pink and purple flowers. “I brought flowers. They’re supposed to mean.. honestly, I have no idea. I just thought they looked pretty. Pretty sure some of these are supposed to mean forgiveness, but I’m also pretty sure you have nothing to forgive me for, so–just focus on them being pretty.”

He grins again, hooking his sunglasses on the collar of his shirt. “I’m Draco, by the way. Which you probably know since you did ask me out so, but just in case.” Definitely much prettier than in the video. Good to know how long he spent picking his tightest jeans and getting his hair to look exactly like he just got fucked within an inch of his life was not a waste of time. “Are you ready?”
