to tell me if something doesn't work

  • what she says: avatar is one of my favorite shows.
  • what she means: avatar: the last airbender is one of the best shows i have ever seen. words cannot describe how much this show means to me. every single one of the characters were diverse, three-dimensional, and well-written, with arcs and character development that were all beautifully orchestrated. the characters were all so human, with flaws, and ambitions, and compelling back stories and motivations. it even shows how the antagonists weren't evil and heartless monsters, but how they were just as human as the heroes. the stories the show itself followed were just as beautiful, mixing humor and playfulness with important, hard-hitting life lessons that have shaped me as a person. the show stressed the importance of friendships and familial bonds, and how everyone is not only deserving of redemption, but can achieve it. it showed the strength in kindness and humility and forgiveness, and how you aren't defined by your past. it showed that just because you're related by blood to someone doesn't mean they're your family, and how friends can be your family too. the show even depicted how animals can be like family. it showed how unhealthy relationships and abuse work, and it showed how you can move and work past those things. it taught how to deal with grief and pain, and how those things can help you grow as a person. it showed that even if everyone is telling you something is right, it doesn't mean it is, and that you should stand up for what's truly right. the visuals were absolutely stunning, and the soundtrack is the best soundtrack of any show or movie i've ever heard. the stories and the characters of this show have resonated with me deeply, and are still affecting me today. to me, nothing will ever compare to avatar: the last airbender.

Me: The Lego movies teach people to be inclusive to people who are different than them, accepting people for who and what they are. 

My dad: “It’s also teaching and influencing the young people in this country to engage in activities they were not born into (being gay). Now when the children play with legos, they might think…do not try to teach our young children that it’s okay…”


@ trans guys trying to pass:

don’t colour your eyebrows in. don’t fill them with a pencil, don’t draw them on thicker, please please i am begging you. it doesn’t work. it’s just really obvious that you’re wearing makeup (if you want to wear makeup by all means, do you. this isn’t about that tho, this is for those who want a natural look)

instead, find eyebrow/lash dye/tint or a really basic mascara (no lengthening or whatever - waterproof is good though). make sure it matches your natural hair colour or is just a little darker. don’t go for jet black unless you actually have black hair, it’ll look fake.

use that instead. only colour the hairs, not your skin. try to get all the little hairs. done. dye is good because you don’t have to reapply it every day! but if you use mascara use it lightly & try brushing your brows around a bit so they don’t look too neat. 

it’s a lot more subtle and i promise will masculinise your face more effectively than pencilling on unnaturally thick brows. 


McHanzo is about two men with similar pasts and exponentially different upbringings, about learning to recover from the hardships they faced even after years of telling themselves they are terrible people. It’s about two men looking at eachother and seeing a painful reflection of the same suffering and loneliness instilled by factors outside of their control and working past that because they each found something they need to protect. Eachother. Mchanzo is about two incredible characters who, even through it all, can’t find forgiveness themselves, so they found it in each other’s company. That is why I love McHanzo.

Hi, can you write something quite angsty but with a happy ending. So Aaron and Robert decide to work through it but Rob is constantly scared that Aaron will change his mind, so really starts to over compensate. Maybe, constantly cleaning, and making food, just being perfect, and keeping his distance to not pressure Aaron, doesn't try to kiss him. And he feels isolated, and alone, doesn't go to the pub. And Aaron realising all of this, and reassuring Rob that he's not leaving. Thank you so much😌

i need something (tell me something new)

Robert is cooking tea. It’s not his turn. It wasn’t his turn yesterday either, but he’s cooking tea anyway. He’s making homemade pizza, because it seems like a nice thing to do. Something that takes time and thought. Something that says I put in time and effort because I wanted to do something nice for you, because I love you, and I hope you love me too.

It could just be pizza, but he can’t think of anything as being just anything anymore. He can’t afford to be complacent.

He’s putting the pizza in the oven when Aaron gets back from the pub. He comes up behind him, waiting for him to stand up straight before threading his arms around his waist and pressing his nose into his shoulder. It should be easy; a welcome closeness, but Robert’s heart batters against the inside of his ribcage. His arms hang loose at his side, despite how badly he wants to turn to Aaron and embrace him. He lost his right to initiate months ago.

‘Looks fancy,’ Aaron says, peering over Robert’s shoulder at the various ingredients spread over the work surface. ‘We could have ordered a pizza if you’d fancied one, though.’

‘We still can,’ Robert says so quickly that his words trip over one another in their rush to leave his tongue.

‘What? After you’ve literally just put a pizza in the oven? Don’t be dim.’

Wrong again. Always wrong.


Aaron places his hands on Robert’s hips and turns him around to face him. He smiles, lifting a hand to his face to wipe some flour off his cheek. It takes all of Robert’s strength not to lean into his palm.

‘Don’t be daft,’ he says. ‘I was just thinking, if we’d ordered a takeaway you could have come to the pub with me.’

‘You had Adam.’

‘Yes, but Adam isn’t my husband.’ You’d be better off. ‘And I’ve been at work with him all day. I wanted to spend some time with you.’

Robert bites back the word that’s been leaving a bad taste in his mouth this past few weeks. Why? Why do you want to spend time with me? After everything I’ve done, after I hurt you in the worst possible way, why do you still love me? Why me? When you deserve someone so much better.

Put your feet up a minute,’ Aaron says, putting his hands in his pockets and glancing around the kitchen. ‘Get yourself a beer. I’ll tidy up a bit while the pizza cooks.’

Robert shakes his head. ‘No.’

Aaron frowns. ‘No?’

‘Sorry, I mean,’ Robert takes a breath, trying to steady himself. This shouldn’t feel like a test. Aaron isn’t testing him. ‘Don’t worry about it. I was just about to start tidying up.’

‘How about you go and tidy yourself up? You’ve got flour and God knows what all down you. You really need to get an apron if you’re going to be so adventurous in the kitchen, by the way. Go and get changed and I’ll tidy up.’

Robert wants to argue, but he can’t. He doesn’t deserve to argue.

Today a guy asked me if I could markdown something in produce that was going to be expiring 2 days from now. I tell him I can't, and directed him to some of the produce employees nearby. He just kinda stands there, watching them for a few seconds while I run off to do my job. He comes back and says he doesn't want to ask them because "they look gripey(?)" and asks me to mark it down again. I just tell him very flatly "I can't because /I don't work in produce/". He just said okay and left. ??????

This is Kristen’s girlfriend. She handed me the phone to answer this. Telling her that that is your passion should be enough. I get it trust me, it’s hard to think that you might not be together for a couple of months at a time but being together in person isn’t what makes a relationship work. In a relationship both of you are different people, both of you have different passions, different views for life. She’s a very very important part of your life but remember she isn’t all of it. You gotta do what makes you happy too and if it’s meant to be she will see that & accept it.

Hello senpai 👑 sooo one of my fav ao3 writers just announced there quitting for awhile because there fics aren't doing well or something and been comparing themselves to "bigger" writers and doesn't know how to improve. what can I say to them to help? 😢 I love your fics too and your short sick fic you just wrote on here!!!❤

Ahhh, this makes me so sad to hear.

It’s so important to tell authors (especially the ones who don’t get much attention) that you enjoy their work. When you compare how many HITS a fanfic gets to how many kudos or comments, it’s pretty sad.

Writing fanfic is not easy, guys. And it’s very, very lonely.

When authors write, they’re sitting there by themselves in a quiet room, tapping on a keyboard. For hours. Days. Weeks. I have personally probably spent about 10-20 hours on EACH INDIVIDUAL chapter of Winter Song. Some of the later chapters took more than that. Those are hours I didn’t spent with my family or friends. When you make that sacrifice and no one bothers to acknowledge it…well, to be blunt, it kind of hurts. Being ignored is a terrible feeling.

Though many authors write simply because it makes them happy, there is nothing more encouraging than to get a comment, even if it’s just a smiley face or one word to say “Thanks!” It means A LOT.

I’ve been feeling frustrated myself because my fic Drive is not getting the same attention as my other fic. But I try to remind myself that that’s not why I’m writing it. I’m writing it because I find enjoyment in these characters. The kudos and comments don’t matter. The joy I get from Victor and Yuuri … that’s why I do it. So I’m going to keep doing it as long as they give me joy.

When writing isn’t fun anymore, it’s important to find a way to make it fun again. If that means taking a step back for a while, then that’s okay. If that means starting a new story to refresh your creativity, sometimes that helps, too. That’s why I started Drive.

I hope your friend is finding a way to be happy. Hopefully that will mean returning to writing soon. <3

Support fanfic authors, guys. One word. That’s all it takes to make an author’s day and make them want to write more.

anonymous asked:

I could use some 'dealing with parents advice'. Hello I am an older asexual, 27, and I've been having a bit of trouble with my mom. I'm fully out as asexual in my family and have been since I was 19. It's always been one of those 'don't talk about it/don't mention it' kind of things. My mom doesn't like to be reminded of it and the trade off for me not mentioning it is that she doesn't ask me if I'm dating. It's not ideal but it's worked decently. 1/4

Only I’m now thinking about and in the process of starting to become a foster parent and actively pursuing adoption. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and planned on doing but it’s…put a very large strain on my relationship with my mom. She finally broke the other day and called me crying, telling me how disappointed she is in me and how this was never the life she wanted for me. That, if it was up to her, I would be getting married to some man and having kids with him. 2/4

I wasn’t exactly sure how to handle the situation and I could only really mention that I was still open to artificial insemination if she really wanted a biological grandkid (it an option I’m still happily open to for other reasons besides that of course but I thought it might comfort her) which sadly only seemed to make things worse, because apparently that wasn’t the ‘point’. ¾

I’m at a loss at what to do now. The whole situation has been making my mother far more angry and upset and I don’t know if I should put a halt on me becoming a foster parent until its all sorted out or if it’s time to start cutting ties. I want my mom to be involved in my life and I’ve tried to be as understanding and kind to her about everything regarding my sexuality but if it’s going to prevent me from becoming a parent myself I don’t know if I want to keep trying to be civil about it. 4/4

Well, you presented your mom with several options that you felt comfortable with, but she obviously was trying to convince you to go her route and only her route. That’s a very aggressive situation, and I don’t blame you for feeling very frustrated.

I can’t claim to guess what your mother is thinking, but if she doesn’t want you to be a foster parent or deliver offspring through artificial insemination, then she must be thinking about the poster scenario of ‘man, woman, 2.5 children’. As far as families go, that’s only one limited option out of many happy, healthy lifestyles.

Regardless of her feelings about you not finding a partner to sire offspring, that’s no reason for her to be ‘disappointed’. Disappointed in what? Being a woman who doesn’t marry a man? Being a woman who doesn’t deliver children by her husband? Being someone who fits the image of heteronormality?

There’s no way she can justify that sort of behavior. I can’t offer any quick fix to your situation, but you should take some time to circle through our ‘positive’ tag, where we do have some stories submitted by ace parents - some single, some not. Perhaps it’s not about changing your mother’s feelings, but giving you the confidence to pursue your own life.

Do you have any suggestions for responses when people ask me about my leg braces? I'm so tired of grown ass adults asking me like it's not hella rude. And telling them it's none of their business doesn't go over well.

Oooo, damn. This is incredibly annoying, and I only have a little advice

Dodging the question with a joke could work. i.e “Oh, these? They’re actually part of my robot legs showing, I’m a cyborg. *Laugh*” or “Ah, I got in a fight with a pretender to the throne, haven’t been able to walk properly since. *Once again, laugh*”, something along those lines. The more persistent will push it, but if you don’t explain after making a joke, most people will get that you don’t want to answer

There’s also “I don’t want to talk about it”, but people will make assumptions from that. It does have the benefit of coming off more ‘polite’ than “none of your business” whilst still not answering

Unfortunately, that’s all I’ve got. Able bodied people are just generally annoying, it can be hard to make them back off.

Hello, so I'm troubled about something. I'm trying to research and get into the practice of witchcraft and I was telling my boyfriend about it. I was trying to explain it to him and I think I did a poor job. He thinks it's complete bullshit and is kinda being dickish about it and its making me slightly angry (ok maybe really angry). How would you explain it to someone that doesn't understand how it works? Thanks for whatever you say. P.s. love love love your blog! 💕

it’s a path with the intent of pursuing growth, with a focus on spiritual agency as well as empowering the practicer and giving them a sense of control over their life. it can be about getting in touch with ancestry and their folkloric traditions, it can be about meditation on the self.

ask him what he thinks it’s about, try to see if he has any pre-conceived notions about what it entails, what makes it more “bullshit” than any other belief system or religion.

Why what you do doesn't seem important, but actually is

When I was in college, I had a wonderful mentor/professor who helped me learn lessons that keep being relevant as I go through life–which, if you ask me, is the tell-tale sign that he was a great professor.

One of those lessons was that it could be almost impossible to establish self-worth, and to recognize self-acheivement. After we’ve learned how to do something–ANYTHING–really well, it seems almost like second nature for us to do it. Even if we’re producing quality work, we look at it and think ‘well, sure this turned out well but anyone out there could have done it if they put the time in.’ We forget that WE are the ones that put the time in to learn the skill, and that WE are the ones who now have something special for it.

Here’s an example:

This professor told me about a time when he was at a conference giving a talk. After he was done with his seminar (which was probably about something awesome like chaotic oscillators) he went on to listen to other professors and industry professionals give their talks. There was one he was sitting on, thinking to himself 'WOW this guy is cool. Here he is building a genetic search engine (or some other incredible topic) while I’m just dorking around with chaotic oscillators.’ but then, after the talk, my professor went up to him. He wanted to tell him how neat he found the subject and the guys research… And when he got up there, the guy went 'OH WOW you are that professor with the chaotic oscillators! I saw your seminar and I was so excited by it! You’re really doing something incredible while I’m just dorking around with genetic search engines.’ And thats when my professor realized that JUST BECAUSE THINGS SEEM COMMON TO US DOESN’T MEAN THAT THEY ARE COMMON. Our skills, our lessons, and our experiences are unique to each of us, we just are looking at them through the fogged glass of 'been there, done that.’ Others won’t be looking at them through that same glass.

If you ever see artwork and say 'wow I wish mine was that good,’ or read a story and say 'gee I wish that I could write like that,’ you have to also remember that there is probably someone out there saying the same exact thing about your work to themselves. It might even be the exact same person who you’re envying.

Please never forget that your experiences have made your own work into something valuable. YOU have put the time into it. YOU have something unique. YOU have something that it would take somebody else at least as long to duplicate, and it would still never come out the same way that you do it.

We fixate so often on comparing ourselves to other people, but we judge ourselves the most unfairly. We look at what they have, and we fret about what we don’t have, and we forget that we aren’t defined by what we don’t have.

Your work is important, and it is only going to get more important from here.

Hi!!! I honestly might have already sent this but I'm not sure because I have a horrible memory I'm sorry!! The RFA's + V reactions to male!MC coming out to extremely homophobic parents about their relationship? I suppose this doesn't really work with Jaehee though XD Hope you have a good day and sorry if I already sent this!

this going to be goood~ I’m pan hehe, and my parents are really old school, so yeah, I don’t have a great relationship with them lol.  Tell me something about yourselves, little followers!

Note: In SEVEN’s part, there are SPOILERS for his route.


He has never being more nervous in his life! It’s like he’s about to take an exam that’s impossible to pass, he will give his all though. 

Your parents have called some days before and invited you for dinner. You invited Yoosung, but didn’t say anything, he was just going to show up. When you both arrived to your parents house, his poor heart just stops. You both greeted everyone and sat down in the living room. You told them that Yoosung was a student and stuff like that. “Oh, well, you seem to be a remarkable young man, Yoosung, I hope you two become great friends” your mom said. He just got really red and stiff. “Actually, Mom, he… there’s a reason he came with me.. He is.. my boyfriend”. Everyone turned to see you two. 

Your family just lost it, they shouted at you, “We’ve rose you better than this!”, but you just told them that you loved him. Only shouts and insults came out of your parent’s mouth. At one point, Yoosung tried to protect you, wich caused your father to get angrier and almost hit him. “Enough, we’re leaving. That’s why I’m never home” you said while picking your jacket and storming out the house while grabbing Yoosung’s cold hand. 

He started crying as soon as you were alone and apologizing although it wasn’t his fault. 


Once he asked you if he was ever going to meet you family, that they should be cute, kind people like his prince. But you just said that it wasn’t a good idea and maybe you’d try later. 

A while after, you were cudding and watching movies together at Zen’s house when your mother called you. He paused the movie and watch you as you talked. “So where are you, male!MC? When are you going to visit?”, you remembered what Zen had asked and well, you just told her: “I’m… Right now I am with my… boyfriend” you murmured. Zen’s eyes widened and he got closer. There was a wierd silence before he could hear screams coming from your phone. “What are you talking about, male!MC! That’s why we should never let you do whatever you wanted, you’ve never had an idea of what you should do! You’re so useless, not even a girlfriend you can get, you’ll never have a family or someone who loves you!”. You started crying and Zen was just panicking, how could they treat his lovely prince like that? “I’m gay, mother! I don’t want a girlfriend, and… Zen loves me”. You father became part of the conversation at some point and you had both of them sreaming at you for a while and you trying to defend youself, until they told you that you were not their son, and they never wanted to see you again. That was it, Zen was so mad by that point. “Well that’s good, he needs someone better than a family like yours. He’s the best person in the world and if you can’t see it then you don’t deserve him”. And he hung up. 

He’d apologize and hugged you until you calmed down. Well, you were going to live a happy life with Zen.


You’ve never wanted to tell your parents about your relationship with Jumin, but the wedding was near and he told you to invite them. You refused though, it scared you. He send them an invitation anyways.

Some days after, you were having dinner with him and got a phone call from home. He signaled to answer, not even imagining what was going to happen next.

“Mom, Dad? What’s up”

It went down hill from there. Screams, insults were just coming from the other end of the phone. You just tried to hold your tears but failed, and Jumin was just paralized, he didn’t want this to happen at all. You tried to explain, protect yourself and Jumin, but also failed. He, after some minutes, grabbed your phone and just hung up and embraced you.

“I- I send an invitation to them.. I’m so sorry, I didn’t know… I..” He was truly sorry and determined to make it up to you. You explained to him and he was just so mad. You never talked about it again and just tried to forget about then and live happily with your now husband. 


He never understood those people who were homophobic because of their religion. It was definitely a shock to found out about your parents and he never brought it up. He understood that you didn’t want to tell them, but he also felt sad, like if you didn’t tell them, your relationship wouldn’t be official(?)

Once you brought it up, and told him that you didn’t want to hide anymore since Seven, I mean, Saeyoung himself was making some changes in his life. He hesitated but told you he would support your decision. 

You went all the way to your parents home with him and just started chatting with them casually. 

When you told them, they freaked out and started attacking both of you. You have never thought about this, but.. this situation, is like Saeyoung’s childhood right? You turned to him, and this definitely remembered him about his mom. He was scared, and on defense. You’ve never seen him like that. You quickly grabbed his hand and went home. You apologized for not thinking about it and try to calm him down… After that, he would just try to make you feel less guilty about it. 


he wasn’t blind in all this

You two had talked about it, to tell your parents about it, you kind of wanted to tell the truth but you were also afraid of how would they react. So V just told you that he’d suppoort your idea, but that you should do it when you were ready. So you waited. 

One day, you two were on a date in a new art museum. You two had always held hands even in public (cultural note: in korea, people normally don’t show afection in public, you show it less if you’re in a “gay” relationship..), you didn’t care what people thought about you. There was a photography display in one of the rooms of the museum, so you headed there.

Everything was going great, until you saw your parents observing some photos beside you. You frozed and held V’s hand tighter. “What’s the matter, male!MC?”. He looked at you, “Lets go, hurry” you said whispering. But someone stopped you, your mother. “male!MC?” she saw your hand still holding V’s, “Wha-at? What is this?” and she forcefully pulled you towards her. 

Yes, it was happening, your parents found out about you two and got really angry, and started a whole drama, all in public. “What do you think you two are doing?? It is disgusting! So disgraceful”. V tried to calm your parents and talk to them but they would just scream at you two, he really tried, he wanted to protect you. 

People just passed by, some seemed to agree with your parents and others just saw how you cried. “Jihyun, lets go, please, I can’t stand it”. 

And you went home. He spend a lot of time trying to calm you down and apologizing that you had to go through that.
