v.-emotional

so here’s what’s happening over at my ao3 stats
😳😳😳

Looking at it now tho, I complaned like A LOT when both Goergie and Charlotte were born because that fucking Lindo Wing door and the waiting that seemed endless, yet it’s days like today, when we get to see them both big and happy and playing with balloons and bubbles and being cheeky and precious and cute and it makes it all worth it. They make it worth it.

YO guys! Guess who went to see Deepwater Horizon today??? Yas, exactly, it was me. I’m really exhausted and should head to bed rn, but I just wanted to cry about Dylan before I do bc??? I’m so proud of him??? He’s so amazing and talented and is part of a movie like that, working with these super famous people on a story like this (Deepwater Horizon is based on a true story of the oil catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico) and idk. I’m just v emotional and I’m proud of his achievements and hope he will continue shooting for the stars and that he’s having a good day filled with baseball and chicken nuggets

this is not anything anyone should be ashamed of

race, gender, religion, sexuality; we are all people

it’s important to be proud and open with who you are

this isn’t something that i chose. this is something that is a part of me and has always been a part of me

so let’s talk about Rose

Rose’s symbol is a gem surrounded by petals and a spiral of thorns. it’s on her shield, her sword, and her cannon, and it’s in her armoury.

and it’s on their flag.

Yellow Diamond’s followers wear her symbol, and it’s on one of the devices Peridot activates in Marble Madness.

but the gems don’t wear Rose’s symbol.

they wear the star

because it represents all of them, as equals, together

because that’s the kind of leader Rose was.

Whenever I read those posts on tumblr about people experiencing crowded Pokestops with devoted fans camping the area, I always assumed it was a rare instance and it wasn’t something I’d see myself.

Today, I proved myself wrong.

It’s a hell of a feeling to walk into a popular shopping center and to not only see Pokestop after Pokestop affected by lure modules, but to also see hundreds of people of all ages, races and genders crowded around attempting to catch Pokemon together.

I saw parents teaching their kids use the app so they could catch a Magikarp, kids clustered together screaming “Team Yellow!!” with pride, and groups gathered in a spot where a rare Pokemon just appeared.

At one point a Slowbro spawned, and you could hear different people yell “I got it!” every other second as we all attempted to catch it.

At another point a Pikachu appeared across the street, and the word spread so fast that crowds of people were running across the road to attempt to catch it (the bottom picture).

I captured a gym at one point and yelled “It belongs to Team Red now!”, and watched as within SECONDS others from Team Red added their Pokemon to the roster, before Team Blue put in the work to take it for themselves.

My friend and I sat at a bar and a man came up to us and chatted excitedly about Pokemon for a bit before his girlfriend found him and joined the conversation as well. I found out that he was level 18 and his strongest Pokemon was a 1180cp Venusaur.

Everyone was excited and amazed by the crowds, and it felt so easy to talk to strangers and to make friends because we all had this single aspect of common ground.

I’ve never, ever experienced anything like this. It honestly feels so close to the world we see in the show. Every single face I saw was smiling, everyone was happy, and I hope it never ends.
