So there are so many tropes/headcanons that are found in virtually every zutara fanfic that even though they aren’t actually in the show they are just acknowledged to be Zutara canon
I always thought the ‘When Zuko had Katara’s necklace he wore it around his wrist’ trope was one of those… but I’m rewatching the show and in “Bato of the Water Tribe” HE’S WEARING IT AROUND HIS WRIST???
THAT’S HOW AANG REALIZES ZUKO HAS IT AND GETS IT BACK I ALWAYS ASSUMED THAT PEOPLE JUST MADE THAT UP BUT IT’S LITERALLY CANON????
RULES, RULES. This is important. You need to set rules for yourself,
and if you are truly ana, you will have no problem sticking to them
because you are STRONG! Rules are everything. Examples: Don’t eat
anything white. Do not, under any circumstances, eat after 6:00. Don’t
eat before 3:00. Cut each bite into x amount of pieces, chew x amount of
times. Do not eat anything that has over 3 grams of fat. Make your own
and keep adding to them.
Ana must be the center of your life.
a full glass of water before you eat and then sip a full glass between
bites, you’ll get full much faster. Remember it takes 20 minutes for the
brain to realize the stomach is full.
denser food because it feels like more. Light and fluffy foods compact
in your digestive tract and you will feel hungry soon after.
Take out only the amount of food you plan to eat and don’t allow seconds.
before you eat. Don’t eat while distracted (TV, etc). Stop and consider
if you really want to eat that then consciously give yourself
4 100-calorie meals is better than one 400-calorie meal.
eat anything bigger than about a cup, your stomach will expand and
you’ll get hungry more. If you need to, eat more frequently, not bigger
and other “healthy” bars and shakes have more carbs and calories than
in the meal they’re intended to replace. Stay away.
at least a glass of water every hour. It’s better for weight loss to
sip throughout the day than to chug a full glass (except before eating,
in which case it can make you eat less, or make you slightly nauseous so
you don’t want to eat at all). Try keeping a water bottle somewhere
you’ll see it a lot, like every 10-20 minutes, and take a drink from it
every time you see it/notice it.
up to a shot of apple cider vinegar before eating, it’s supposed to
minimize fat absorption. Also speeds metabolism and can help curb
cravings. Drinking more than a shot causes a vague nausea which helps
Ice or gum are good food substitutes. Celery works too if you’re really hungry.
small, dark colored plates. Dark blue or black makes you eat less, and
smaller plates and utensils cause you to take smaller portions from the
a list of “bad” foods. Periodically, cross one of the list and pledge
to never, ever eat it again. Eventually there will be none left.
in front of a mirror, naked or in underwear if possible. If you can’t,
carry a picture of yourself in a revealing outfit and look at it when
you want to eat. When you have cravings pinch your fat and look at your
problem areas, don’t add to them!
Eat a lot of fiber for digestive health and low calories.
a methodical routine for eating. Cut food into tiny pieces, count your
bites and the number of times you chew, set your utensils down between
bites, and sip water between bites. Add other rules or rituals of your
higher-calorie items earlier in the day so you have more time to burn
them off; if you eat late eat light or it will be more likely to be
stored as fat due to inactivity. Try not to eat too late, sleep burns
calories and is a good opportunity to burn fat with little effort. The
body must burn through all digesting food before taking energy from
stored food (fat).
you go out, take very little money or only enough to buy whatever
non-food item you plan on buying. This will make it harder to buy food
take bites, either from others’ food or while cooking, as the calories
add up surprisingly fast and you may not realize how much extra you’re
down everything you eat and its calories. This will make you think
before eating and also make you more aware of how much food and calories
you are actually consuming. You can also write down other things such
as how you’re feeling, who you’re with, place, time, and why you chose
to eat it, this will help you track patterns in your eating behavior.
Wear a rubber band around your wrist and snap it when you want to eat. Food = pain.
a time you cannot eat past. 6:00 or 7:00pm are good choices. This is
especially helpful if you are prone to night binging. Then make a rule
that you cannot eat before 6:00 or 7:00AM, this is like having a 12-hr
fast every day.
shouldn’t eat for at least 3 hours before going to bed. The extra hours
will help burn off the calories. If you eat soon before sleeping, you
absorb more calories due to inactivity and you put on weight.
Have a peppermint or peppermint tea. Peppermint decreases hunger.
Brush your teeth when you want to eat. The clean feeling and mint aftertaste will put you off food.
Press on your stomach when it grumbles. TUMS also stop stomach growling and have calcium.(5 calories a piece so be careful!)
a list of all the reasons you want to be thin and avoid food. Look at
it when you want to eat to remind yourself why you won’t. Or, write a
new list every time you want to eat. It’ll distract you, postpone
eating, and thinking of the reasons will inspire you.
a ribbon the size you want your waist to be. wrap and tie it around
your wrist like a bracelet. Every time you look at it you’ll be reminded
of your goals. When you’re tempted, take it off and wrap it around your
waist. See how close you are, or how far you have to go, and resist the
leave at least one bite of food on your plate. This will help you to be
able to stop eating and prevent binges. It will also stop you from
compulsively finishing portions even when you have eaten enough.
Save $1 for every meal you don’t eat, then use the money to buy yourself a non-food present.
Friends will only get in the way. Avoid them until you reach your goals.
eat in secret. This is a terrible habit that leads to compulsive
binging. If you wouldn’t eat it in front of all your friends you
shouldn’t be eating it at all! Also if you only eat around other people
they will know that you do eat and assume you eat alone as well, thus
lessening suspicion that you have an ED.
eat out of a box or jar. Always eat from a plate or bowl. This will
help you in several ways: You will see how much you are really eating;
you can determine in advance how much you will eat and not go back for
seconds; using a small plate or bowl will make you eat even less; you
can count/measure out an exact serving and know the accurate amount of
calories you are consuming.
Give clothes to Goodwill as they get too big for you. Don’t keep them around “just in case.”
If you live alone, put thinspo and/or reverse thinspo pictures on the pantry and refrigerator. A mirror works well too.
you have hunger pangs, picture your stomach eating away your fat, and
that what you feel is the feeling of thinness and your fat burning
Coffee is an appetite suppressant. Drink it black or with Splenda or other no-calorie sweetener.
your bites, and the number of times you chew them. Plan in advance how
many bites you can have. Then make them smaller or use smaller
Paint your nails so you can’t eat until the polish dries. Teeth whitening strips are good too.
water before eating. If you’re still hungry, drink green tea or broth.
If you still need to eat, you’ll eat less than you would have.
low-calorie foods with strong flavors. Sometimes you’re craving taste,
not food. For bouillon, use less water than is recommended. Peppermints,
pickles, peppers, and mustard are good choices.
Do not eat anything unless you know the exact amount of calories in it.
Chew gum while cooking. That way you can’t take bites while it is cooking, and you won’t want to eat it once it’s done.
Keep food out of sight, not sitting out, and stay away from food and the kitchen to keep your mind off it.
Keep a pocket thinspo in your wallet with your cash so you won’t spend money on food.
For sweet cravings, lick a chopstick and dip it into a diet Swiss Miss pack.

When you go to eat, you’ll be reminded how fat you are, and how skinny
you could be.

“Lili growing some flowers (maybe with a bouquet that holds symbolic value)”
…I was totally unoriginal and went with lilies. They really do suit her! X’D Meanwhile Raz gets a flower crown/mess loool in hindsight I realize Lili probably wouldn’t pick a ton of flowers but I thought the idea was cute so…!
First time drawing her, and I’m so happy to say that Lili is super easy to draw!

I hope you like it!
They never really talk about it.
Even after the first time it happened, Misha wanted to—but
as soon as he saw Jensen on set the next day, he froze. And maybe he
would’ve been more inclined to say something to him, if the man had
actually acted weird—if he’d pushed Misha away or given him the silent
treatment; but he didn’t. Jensen acted a hundred percent normal.
soon as he saw him, he patted Misha on the back, told him “Good
morning”, handed him a cup of tea and then walked off to the make-up
trailer. It was almost as if the night before, never even happened—so
Misha assumed that that’s the way Jensen wanted it. He wanted to forget
it all, pretend everything was the same while praying to God that Misha wouldn’t mess up the illusion for him … so Misha didn’t.
He pretended too.
And soon enough, it all felt like some sort of a weird fever dream. Hazy around the edges, but still grounded with memories of touch and smell, and the sensation of someone else’s tongue running across his lips. It was fine. He
would be fine. He rationalized it to himself over and over; it was just
an odd moment between friends. He’s had plenty of those while growing
up— with Darius, mostly … but those are something he’s used to, so
this shouldn’t throw him in the least.
How to be a Good Boyfriend. (Evan Hansen x Reader)
Request: Evan x reader something fluffy please!
WC: 4,097 (I’m sorry)
A/N: I’m going to put this under a read more because it’s long. I’m not even sure if this is good or even fits the request. Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Evan wanted you to know how much he loved you, he really did. It was hard sometimes because of his anxiety. He had never been in a relationship before. He didn’t know what to do. He never felt like he was giving as much to your relationship as you were. You constantly tried to reassure him that he was, but in his on special way. He never accepted that though. Evan wanted to be an affectionate boyfriend that could do sweet things for you. Not a boyfriend who was flustered to even hold your hand.
They were sitting on a bench in the middle of a carnival and Magnus was telling Alec a story about the first time he came to Tokyo back in 1768. The bright lights cast rainbows across their faces and the aroma of food drifted through the air, begging to be eaten. Magnus was talking about how he would have never dreamed of seeing such rides like these back then and Alec was holding Magnus’ hand, playing with his rings and stroking his nails. They were a deep red today.
Alec seemed to be lost in his world and Magnus caught Alec absent-mindedly smiling at a point in the story that he really should not have been smiling at. Magnus stopped mid story and chuckled. “What?” he asked, amused.
Alec snapped his head up and didn’t know what to say. His mouth lay agape as he searched for something, anything, to reply with. Here Magnus was, revealing so many memories from his past, and Alec felt the need to share something from his that wanted Magnus to know. He smiled and shook his head, looking back down at Magnus’ hands. They were absolutely lovely, Alec thought.
“I remember I asked Izzy to paint my nails once,” he said, smiling fondly. “I was… I don’t know, 12?” Magnus smiled softly, watching Alec’s hand carefully glide over his fingernails. He figured this wasn’t something Alec told most people. Alec rolled his eyes slightly. “I picked the shiniest shade of black that she had,” he continued, chuckling at that just as Magnus did. “She was so excited. She always knew - I guess - that I was gay. I remember this one time, she slipped her bracelet onto my wrist… and I like the weight of it. I liked the sound of the beads as I trained.
Magnus grinned, looking up at his boyfriend’s face but Alec’s expression had contorted into a certain confusion, a look of strain. Magnus frowned and looked down at his hands to see Alec’s hovering over them warily. As though touching him would hurt.
Alec swallowed hard and continued. “When my mother noticed, she ripped it off my hand and forced me to scrub my nails clean.” Magnus frowned and noticed that Alec was watching his expression. He was scared of what Magnus would say to that. He had never really revealed those kinds of memories to anyone before.
Magnus looked down at his hands and slowly unclasped the beaded bracelet around his wrist, moving it towards Alec. He looked slightly hesitant at first but cracked a smile and held out his arm. Magnus secured the bracelet around Alec’s wrist and brought a hand up to touch Alec’s cheek.
Alec closed his eyes and leaned into the touch ever so slightly. His heart was stammering loudly in his chest. Magnus placed a soft kiss to Alec’s cheek and the boy felt his entire body heat up. But he felt at ease. He felt like he wasn’t trying to be anyone else, not when he was with Magnus.
Alec opened his eyes and turned his head to peck Magnus’ lips quickly. Magnus smiled at him but his gaze moved to look at something behind Alec, a glint in his eyes.
“Why do you look so excited?” asked Alec suspiciously.
Alec could see a childlike spark in Magnus’ eyes. “Because I see a photo booth,” he said and pointed to the flashing colourful lights detailing a very small box. “And that means we’re taking photos.”
Alec squinted one eye but Magnus just rolled his eyes at him, dragging him to his feet. “It looks very cramped. How are we even supposed to fit in that?” he asked.
“Oh come on!” teased Magnus. “I’m sure, amidst all your badass demon hunting, you’ve never had time to enjoy a photo booth.”
Alec sighed. “Alright, alright!” he exclaimed and Magnus’ face lit up.
They crawled inside and sat close together, shoulders touching and legs tangled. And Alec realised that he could travel the entire world, experience things he would have never dreamed of. But maybe Magnus wouldn’t disappoint him. And maybe he wouldn’t have to live with a lack of satisfaction for the rest of his life. And maybe Magnus was home.
