true meaning of today

People talk a lot about how Harry Potter taught them about friendship and bravery and love overcoming evil etc and of course I think that’s very important but like…

Harry Potter also taught an entire generation of kids that the news media can’t always be trusted to tell the truth, that the government can often be corrupt or incompetent, that the legal system isn’t always right, that the people in power don’t always have your best interests at heart. That bad things sometimes happen to good people, that your heroes aren’t always as perfect as you think they are, that even those with the best intentions can be wrong, that everyone can make mistakes and that often in order to make things right it takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice.

…and I think in a way that’s every bit as important as the more positive messages.


Also if you have squares or oppositions be thankful, I know it’s sounds contradicting but hear me on this one. I have seen people who are born with such an easy chart and I found that they do not change, grow or transform easily. They don’t have the friction or spark that exists in the charts of people who have lots of squares or oppositions. Squares and oppositions are the flame that ignite the person to push harder, to seek further and work more for betterment. People who have squares and oppositions are aware of their wounds that are always bleeding over everything they do but they also know they have to do something to be able to heal these wounds in order to live. Sometimes, and in my opinion it’s most of the time but let’s stick with sometime, squares and oppositions are what makes a person a success. Not necessarily famous success but someone who literally made themselves who they are today, they truly know the true meaning of struggle, pain and inferiority and that’s why they want themselves and others to let go of these negative feelings and to always aim for betterment and development.

Sometimes squares and oppositions are the fuel that keeps a person going. The need to conquer, survive and prosper. When I see squares I see a Phoenix in front of me that will rise one day, even if the person is not aware of it yet. I always see potentials in squares and oppositions, always. That’s why they are important to exist and to have, even if they are quite difficult to handle .

One day at a time (chapter 5) Lin-Manuel x Reader

Part1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 |


Sorry this has been a LONG time coming. I’ve had a lot of life stuff happen in the last month and it’s meant I haven’t really felt like writing.  It also means that this chapter is possibly a bit too angst ridden. Sorry about that (not sorry)

Summary: After a random meeting on Tinder you begin a long distance relationship with Lin while he films Mary Poppins in London. It’s all fluff and sweetness and light until your ex lies and convinces Lin that you are back together, threatening your long distance relationship.

Word Count: 5,232

Warnings: Remember when this started out as fluff? Pro tip: don’t try writing fluff after going through a breakup IRL.

A/N: There’s a lot of discourse on rpf at the moment. This is a rpf and is tagged as such so if that’s not for you then don’t read, and I hope we can still be friends.

Remember the time you used to date Lin-Manuel Miranda? Yeah that was weird.

What a strange sentence to tumble round your brain. The strangest part was that it was in past tense. ‘Dated’. As in you used to date him but not anymore. As in, you fell in love with him far too quickly and your life ruining ex-girlfriend decided to stomp on both your hearts. As in he’s a million miles away across the sea and he’s no longer speaking to you and  maybe you should let it go.

I’ve been standing at the edge of the water…

Oh god.

long as I can remember, never really knowing why…

Not now.

You cringed and closed your eyes as the familiar sounds of the Moana soundtrack blasted out across the tannoy in Target. It was maybe the 6th time you’d heard that song that week while trying to go about your daily life. You abandoned your cart and marched towards the nearest exit. Not today, Satan, not today.

Let’s Ease Them In

Title: Let’s Ease Them In

Rating: PG

Word Count: 4841

Summary: “Way to not be obvious Dan,” Hannah says as they arrive backstage. “You guys have been keeping this under wraps for so long now, what’s with all the slip ups lately?”

“We’re easing them in,” Dan grins back.

(Or the fic where Dan and Phil slowly start letting the fans know the truth, by way of other people’s vlogs)

(Read on AO3)

A/N:  Hey guys, this is my first fic for the phandom :D! Hopefully you enjoy it, have fun reading.

(So I totally forgot to mention my beta Morgannita, she not at all in this fandom or even really active on Tumblr anymore, but I still want to thank her for looking over this fic :D!) 

Sidenote: This takes place in 2017. It’s mentioned a few times during the fic but can easily be read over, so I thought I’d mention it here as well.

It starts simple. They’re at the airport waiting to board their flight to Florida for Playlist Live 2017. There are a bunch of other YouTubers waiting with them and a few of them are vlogging. It’s early though, Phil is still wearing his glasses and Dan is tired. Dan is tired and is resting his head on Phil’s shoulder and he just can’t be bothered to lift it and sit further away from his boyfriend just in case someone catches them in their vlog. He groans and buries his face further in the make shift pillow that is Phil’s shoulder. “How long till we can board?”

“About half an hour, then you can go back to sleep babe.”

Half an hour later they board their flight and sleeping is exactly what they both do.

Sure enough the image of them in the boarding area is captured in multiple vlogs and from multiple angles and the fans go a bit crazy with that. There are still the naysayers suggesting that surely best friends do that as well.

Borden: Everything’s going to be alright because I love you very much.

Sarah: Say it again.

Borden: I love you. 

Sarah: Not today.

Borden: What?

Sarah: Well, some days it’s not true and today you don’t mean it.  Maybe today you’re more in love with magic then me.  I like being able to tell the difference… it makes the days it is true mean something. 

Take some time out of your day to think about all the amazing people you have in your lives. I have done this over the past few weeks and it has helped me so much. As you may know, I lost my dog TJ a few weeks ago😞😢. As traumatising as this was, it really made me appreciate how many amazing people I have in my life. It also made me feel so loved and supported by reading all your beautiful messages. I was even sent flowers from some girls NYC!! I couldn’t believe how much people cared. It was so beautiful. I still cry for him everyday. Although this FEELS LIKE the worst year of my life, it has really taught me a lot. I now know the true meaning of “we are stronger together”. Thank you all for being amazing. Today I want you to visit a loved one, give your dog a cuddle, hug your best friend, tell your parents you love them, go on a date night with your partner….. you never know what’s going to happen in life - appreciate health, happiness and life 💜

OSF AU - “On the World Stage” (Extended Trailer)

So there is a slightly longer section for this, where editing is a bit choppy. But here you go anyway, for now. :p

Marineford was a nice place. Large, dignified, polished…brimming with eager soldiers of all ranks and plenty of guns pointed toward the sea. Battleships bristled with cannons and the sound of human activity carried along the wind and up through the island’s structure. The sea breeze on the edge of the Tarai Current was refreshing, particularly after days of travel to reach this particular, fortified spot. The base buzzed with nervous energy as the garrison prepared for a war that could shake the very foundations of the world. Almost literally, when one accounted for the possible presence of a master of the Gura Gura no Mi. The Marines were ready. The war would not find them wanting.

being able to have a true friend
is to fall in love
and feel like
you are two bodies
with one heart
because love
is not a word to be used sparingly
but it isnt a word
to be misused
for its true meaning
poses far more purpose
than its abuse seen today
love isnt liking someone
love is being able to cry
when you think of how much you love them
or being able to tell them
just how much they mean to you
because at the end of the day
a true friend is someone
who your heart longs for
but if your not truely in love
with them platonically
then are they really there?

listen i feel like i may go through a fair number of names in my lifetime. i like my exterior & the ways ppl reference me to reflect the fact that i as a human am always changing. but i can promise you that my names will always be three letters long. i feel like that just matches some eternal and intrinsic part of me. i have no attention span. fuck having a polysyllabic name. if i can’t refer to myself with under four letters then i’ve grown too complex for this mortal plane. 

The Right Opportunity

Written for @thefitzsimmonsnetwork​‘s Fanfiction Friday Challenge - For Science (Week 2). 

Prompt - “How could this happen?


Jemma’s brow furrowed as she pulled off the back panel of Bashful in her attempt to identify the cause of the day’s unfortunate incident. Fitz usually handled the dwarfs by himself with Jemma hovering a few inches away to make any adjustments along the way. But today, Fitz stood back with his arms crossed as he watched his partner warily. He knew she wouldn’t find anything out of order, but he didn’t want her to figure that out too quickly, hoping he could continue with his charade until she grew tired and let it go.

Calling the incident unfortunate was a bit of an understatement, considering the entire faculty of the Science and Technology division was in attendance for the apprenticeship presentations. Once the students were told about the chance to work under the likes of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner, Jemma focused much of her time discussing Fitz’s application and the project he would present to the judging panel, saying he wouldn’t want to miss out on an opportunity like this.

At this point in their studies, the dwarfs were pure prototypes, but with Jemma’s constant encouragement and countless late night brainstorming sessions, they were able to get them to a working condition suitable for an impressive demonstration. Jemma radiated confidence, believing the judges would be overly impressed by Fitz’s creation. But Fitz didn’t share these feelings. He knew his invention and overall intelligence were above average compared to others at the Academy, but he didn’t know exactly what the judges were looking for, and more importantly, he didn’t know how he would get on in a high tech lab all by himself without his best friend by his side.

On the day of his demonstration, Fitz walked to the stage and shakily introduced himself before quickly jumping into his presentation. All was well at first – the dwarfs demonstrated their ability to scan the vicinity for textures, matter density, and radiation, the footage projected on a large screen behind him. That was until Bashful decided to go about its own course and flew into the auditorium, nearly missing the judging table by a few inches before crashing to the ground many rows up. 

The silence that filled the space was deafening as Fitz hurried to retrieve the malfunctioning drone, muttering frantic apologies to the observers in the room. Fitz knew Jemma was somewhere in the dark auditorium quietly cheering him on – well, until his presentation came to a shocking halt – but he didn’t seek her out until they were free from onlookers, knowing she would likely be upset.

I’m going to see Chris Colfer! I have a feeling I might be the oldest person there that doesn’t have a child with them but oh well. This could potentially be a once in a lifetime experience and I’m not missing it.
