when you go through a breakup or are apart from somebody you deeply love, it’s so important to remember that there still exists beautiful and tender love outside of romantic relationships- your friends and family still love you, they care about you and that love should also be recognized when you’ve lost somebody you’re in love with. love requires patience and understanding, not bitterness and jealousy. love is always everywhere and it exists in the smallest things and those things deserve to be appreciated, especially when you’re going through a rough time with another person. forgive yourself and forgive them. people love you. please don’t ever limit yourself to the love of one romantic relationship and have yourself collapse at the expense of this one person, who i know you love very deeply. they wouldn’t want that. take care of yourself better, please
What's with all the hate you've been getting lately?
It is only for attention truthfully! But they are also just human like anyone else and they are probably going through rough patches. They are searching for every possible angle to hurt me and its just not working for the response they want, so they try harder. But I truly and genuinely wish the best for them <3
when I was going through an extremely rough time in high school years ago i'd listen to your songs a lot and it was the only thing that soothed me and helped me sleep, even now it does. your voice (and online presence, too) is so calming and i really appreciate u
<:) thank you, genuinely. i’m honored to have helped at all in any way <3
the law of attraction is very much real. you don’t necessarily have to “think positive” every second of every day, that’s not realistic. but be mindful and align your thoughts with what you’re trying to accomplish. express gratitude as much as you can, and always anticipate the best out of every situation, even when you’re going through a rough patch.
raise your vibration and the universe will match you tenfold.
You are worthy even if you cannot work or hold a job
You are worthy even if you cannot support yourself.
You are worthy even if you cost your loved ones a lot of money because of your medical care
you are worthy even if you are homeless
How you are treated speaks to the people in power and their priorities, not your inherent worth as a human being. You are beautiful, special, and important & your life matters. I know you didn’t ask to be sick or disabled, and anything that happened bc of that is not your fault. I love you <3
You open Thomas’ new Sanders Sides video, entitled simply, “Speeches.” After a moment of loading, it begins. Not with his usual, “What is up everybody?!” Simply the loud title card and a fade-in.
Of Roman, standing in his usual spot. He’s smiling. “Hello, my brave and beautiful prince, princess, or non-binary royalty! Tis I, the great Prince Roman! I would just like to take a moment to commend you on your bravery! One such as you deserves all the best, yet time and again you face your dragon-witch! I promise you that with a little magic, and many-a Disney song—along with some encouraging from the valiant yours truly—that dragon-witch will be slain and no longer be able to do you harm! Keep fighting, you strong prince, princess, or non-binary royalty! You will succeed!”
Patton appears after a jump cut, standing in front of the blinds, as always. “Hey kiddo, Dad Patton here! I know you’re going through a trying time in your life. Everyone does! But I gotta say: you’re gonna do just fine. Life’s problems come and go, but some of the hardest ones can always be slightly improved by a couple-a dad jokes! Never be afraid of the power of laughter. I promise you that everything will turn out alright. And you can’t let life get down. I mean, you can’t let life get you down. But if life gets down, you win that dance-off!” He pauses. “Get it? Get down? Like dancing? No? Okay.” Patton grins and giggles. “Anyway! Much love from your internet old man! Hi Brave, I’m Dad!”
Logan follows Patton. “Good day, my star student,” he begins, straightening his glasses. “While I could stand here and wax philosophical about human existence and the nature of the reasons why you are where you are, I’ve been told by the others that could possibly be emotionally insensitive. So I won’t. But I do have a lesson for you. As follows: some say life is a roller coaster. They’re wrong. A roller coaster is a feat of physics and engineering achieved by the arches and spins getting smaller and smaller to maintain momentum. Life does not work that way. Life’s arches and spins vary in intensity and size. In this way, life resembles the visual manifestation of sound waves. Life is music, my young student. A beautiful symphony that has dips and swells, creating an experience unique to each composer, each musician, and each listener. Once you realize this, it gets easier to listen to the music of life.”
Another audio file cuts in. “Aww! You actually listened to me!”
“Be quiet, Roman, or I’ll send you to detention!” Logan retorts. He looks back to the camera. “Anyway. Interruption aside: I hope you take that lesson into your life. It will be worth remembering. Have a lovely day, star student, and feel better soon!”
Virgil appears last. “Hey,” he says, not quite looking at the camera. “Look, the others can be sappy and positive all they want. I guess that’s their job, or something. Especially Dad and Sir Sings-A-Lot. I’m not required to be that way. It’s part of what I am. But today is different. Today is a day when life is even darker than me. Which, I guess, is saying something. But everything is going to be fine. A little anxiety is a good thing. It’ll keep you alive and attentive. But don’t let it overwhelm you. Pretty sure Teach over there explained it to Thomas before. Some productivity curve whose name I can’t remember—”
“Yerkes-Dodson Curve!” Logan interrupts.
“Whatever,” Virgil mutters. “So while life is hard, it’ll get better. Once it does, just keep a little bit of me around and you’ll still be okay. But not too much. I guess I can get a little… toxic in large doses. So be safe, okay kid? Just be careful. That’s what I’m here for.” He nods.
The video shuts off.
Huge thanks to @thatsthat24 for creating such awesome characters! These were fun to make! This came about because of @pancakesanders so equally huge shoutout!

even if you didn’t consider yourself a “fan” of linkin park…let’s face it, you were a fan of linkin park in some way or another. so many of their songs helped me through rough times. “iridescent” probably saved my life more than once.
I’ve been going through some rough times lately. I have a history of depression and anxiety, and yesterday, I finally took that first step to getting better again: I saw a therapist.
She started our session by asking why I was coming to her, and all the Bad Things just came pouring out: issues with friends, sick family members, bad choices I’ve made recently, hating my job, not feeling important to anyone. She didn’t tell me it was all in my head. She just listened and offered me a tissue when I started to cry.
Then she paused, and asked me a question: “What is good in your life right now?”
It took me a minute to think of anything. But then, I started explaining Achievement Hunter; how they make me laugh and enable me to escape. I told her about all of you in the community, and how inclusive and loving you all are, even to people who are relatively new fans, like me.
She smiled and told me she was going to write “Achievement Hunter” in big letters in my file because “that’s important.”
She’s right. It’s important. So, thank you all for being the good thing in my life. Whether you’re an actual member of @officialah or you’re a member of the community; you are my Happy Thought.
Request: “A one shot where Harry keeps trying to admit that he likes the reader like each other but he keeps getting interrupted”
Pairing: Harry Hook x Reader
Warnings: Slight use of language
“Hey, has anyone seen Harry?” You questioned walking into the VK “headquarters”.
It was really just an abandoned floor of an old factory, but it was used as Mal’s studio and a place for your group of five friends to hang out and enjoy each other’s company.
“Last time I saw him, he wanted to talk to you. He should still be on the docks.” Evie said, her eyes focusing on a new design in her sketchbook.
You thanked her quickly and bounded down the steps of the building. You were known as one of the evilest villains on the Isle and it showed in your confident nature and how you presented yourself on the streets.
You chuckled darkly as the Gaston boys physically shuddered when you passed them. Gil was one of your best friends, but his brothers were known to be assholes.
They soon stopped their mean taunts after you’d finished with them. “Love the new hair, Y/N!” One of the young members of Uma’s crew smiled as you sauntered passed.
“It’s a Dizzy Tremaine creation.” You smiled shooting her a wink. You had soon bonded with the rest of the crew with your blooming friendship with the first mate, and you secretly were happy with the new group of friends.
“Looky who it is.” Uma groaned as you arrived on the docks. You rolled your eyes in annoyance and scoffed.
“Hey, Shrimpy.” Harry shot you a warning look as Uma sent you a threatening glare. “You’re lucky I don’t hate you, Hook.” She muttered walking away from the two of you stomping.
“What was that about, Captain?” You questioned laughing at Uma’s unusual passive attitude. “Captain, really? And she’s just…in a mood.” He said waving his hooked hand in dismissal.
“Okay.” You sighed not really believing his excuse. “You’re cute when you’re confused.” Harry smirked as he ran his hook through a lock of your hair. Blushing, you smiled and got closer to his face, feeling his warm breath on your cheeks.
“Well, I—“ “Y/N! Mind helping me with something?” Gil exclaimed as he ran from a group of angry storekeepers.
“Guess he was on one of those unsuccessful theft sprees. I’ll talk to you later, okay?” You assured skipping off to help Gil in his time of need.
Harry nodded, but he couldn’t help the disappointed frown on his face as he watched his longtime crush run away, still not able to call you his.
Two Days Later…
You waltzed into Ursula’s Fish and Chips with Harry by your side as he growled at the incoming patrons, which you found kind of hilarious.
“You know, you don’t have to act like a psycho just because your dad is one.” You chuckled taking his hand and sliding into one of the booths on the other side of the restaurant.
“It’s just part of the image. You would know that better than anyone.” He smirked leaning back and placing a lazy arm around your shoulder.
“How’s your mom?” Harry questioned as he noticed your tense nature. “Still a flaming bitch, but I’m surviving.” You laughed leaning into his warm chest.
“Listen, Y/N. I’ve been wanting to tell you something and—“ Harry started before Evie barged into the semi-crowded restaurant looking distressed. “Y/N! Fashion emergency!” She exclaimed taking your hand and pulling you from Harry roughly.
You internally groaned as she separated you from the teenage pirate. “I’m sorry! Catch up later?” You suggested before Evie pushed you through the swinging doors quickly.
Harry sighed dramatically as he watched you go…yet again. This was going to be harder than he thought.
“E! I was busy, what’s the emergency?” You asked breathlessly as she pulled you halfway across the Isle back to the hangout.
“Red or Blue for the skirt?” She questioned shoving her messy sketchbook in your face almost violently. You studied the design.
It was a mid-length lace skirt that would be paired with a dark blue and black splatter patterned top. “Hmm, red. Just to mix it up a bit.” You decided handing her back the book.
She nodded excitedly and gave you a side hug before rushing off downstairs, probably to show Dizzy her new design.
You shook your head and giggled at the princess’ usual giddiness. You sometimes wished you could be more like Evie, the girly attitude.
Perfect hair, perfect makeup.
But you were just the tough girl, making sure that almost no one got through your rough exterior and see your soft side, because that wouldn’t fly around here, not one bit.
A few hours later…
You began walking down the shore of the beach as suggested by Gil when you ran into him at the marketplace.
He claimed it was a good way to clear your mind after a long day of business and confusion. What you didn’t know was who you would run into whilst on your little journey.
Letting out a small yawn, you didn’t notice a pair of calloused hands cover your eyes quickly. “Listen buddy, I have a dagger in my jacket. I wouldn’t want to mess with me.” You growled and the person chuckled behind you.
“Love to see you try and fight me off darling.” A familiar Scottish voice mumbled into your ear.
You let out a small laugh as Harry uncovered your eyes and now stood in front of you. “How’d you know I’d be here, Hooky?” You asked as he fidgeted nervously with his silver hook
. After knowing Harry for a while, you became accustomed to his habits, and this was one of them. “Had Gil influence you to come here, guess he actually pulled through.” Harry smiled looking up at you.
“I have a surprise, come on.” He said taking your hand and jogging farther down the beach as you struggled to keep up with him.
You began to breathe heavily until he finally came to a stop. “Thank God, thought I was gonna pass out.” You gasped giggling.
He was standing on the side of you as you saw the sight in front of you. In the sand there was a beautiful setup of various sized lanterns, each holding a lit candle on a large, slightly tattered blanket.
There were a few pillows lined up on one side of the blanket and the entire sight made you smile widely.
“Did you do this, for me?” You questioned softly as the dim light allowed you to see the cute blush that splayed over his tan cheeks.
“I did. A girl like you deserves a little attention once in a while.” He admitted plopping down on the sand.
You joined him, laying down so you could clearly see the bright stars that adorned the dark night sky. “I need to say something.” He blurted suddenly. You sent him a quizzical look, but told him to go on.
“Y/N, ever since I’ve met you, I’ve had this funny feeling in my chest and it won’t go away. Every time I see you, my heart flutters and I blush at all the badass things you do. You’re one of the strongest and bravest people I have come to know. I’m falling in love with you.”
He quieted down at the last sentence, but you still heard him loud and clear.
You quickly sat up and faced him, avoiding eye contact. “I get it, you don’t want to ruin our friendship.” He sighed getting up to leave.
You forcefully pulled him back down and moved your face closer to his, slowly but gently.
You leaned forward until you felt your lips connect with his as they moved in a synchronized motion.
Never had you felt like this before, but it felt pretty damn good.
After you pulled apart, you couldn’t wipe the smile off of your face as Harry said, “Nothing to say, huh?”
