we can still choose

Friendly reminder that religious gay people exist!! You do not have to choose one or the other! You’re not a bad gay for being religious and you’re not a bad follower for being gay! You can be both! They’re both important parts of your identity and there’s nothing wrong with being both!

Jeffmads+Sofissa part 11

anonymous asked:

Vento Aureo is announced, but they have to remove either Giorno, Mista, Narancia, Abbachio, Bruno or Trish. Who would you choose?

Remove Trish from the plot. It’ll completely break the narrative.

Let her live somewhere nice and safe. She deserves it.

The boys will also be significantly safer. Not 100% safe, because they’re gangsters and all, but still, safer.

After the point where Trish is meant to be introduced, Vento Aureo then transforms into a surreal slice-of-life anime about the gang’s daily lives. Wacky, heartwarming, and oftentimes violent and illegal hijinks ensue.

Q: Why did you guys choose to go to Seidou high school?

Sawamura: It’s was to play baseball with Miyuki Kazuya, of course!!!

Furuya: *sleepy* I found out that Miyuki-senpai goes to Seidou when reading a newspaper about him.

Okumura: …Why should i tell you?

So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

Despite all that they’ve been through, Clarke has never really hated Roan.

When he was her kidnapper she was more scared than anything, and then soon he became an ally in the snake pit that was Polis. Sure she might not agree with everything he does, but she’s come to have a soft spot for the man, especially after he agreed to trade with them even though the Ice Nation hated the Sky People.

The treaty that resulted from that alliance was another story however.

“Most Azgeda alliances are sealed with a contract,” he tells them, staring them down across the table.

“Anything,” she says. It had been a long couple of days in the Ice Nation. Snow had been amazing at first, but then the novelty soon wore off, and Clarke hates having to wear several layers of clothing each day. She is anxious to get back home, and from the way Bellamy keeps on drumming his fingers against the empty holster at his thigh, she can tell that he is too.

Roan lifts an eyebrow. “I wouldn’t be so fast, Wanheda,” he says smoothly, ignoring the way the title made her flinch. He nods at his guards positioned around the room.

Clarke and Bellamy share a look as they clear out.

“Most Azgeda alliances are sealed with a… certain kind of contract,” he explains once it’s just the three of them left in the chamber. He narrows his eyes, his gaze flitting back and forth between the two of them. “A marriage.”

They both go stiff at that, and almost unconsciously Clarke finds his hand beneath the table, squeezing it.

“A marriage,” she repeats, tongue feeling like cotton in her mouth.

If Roan notices the complete 180 in their demeanours, he says nothing. “Yes. Usually the child of the clan’s leader. Sometimes even that leader themselves.”

The muscle in Bellamy’s jaw twitches, and his hand tightens around hers.

“However, there have been some… special circumstances in the past,” he goes on, staring intently at Clarke.

She swallows. “What kind of circumstances?”

“If a leader has no children and is already promised to someone else,” he replies, and then his eyes pointedly slide from her to Bellamy who hasn’t so much as moved since the bomb was dropped. She feels her stomach clench. “If that’s the case then we can still choose to move forward in the alliance. The binding would just be a little bit trickier.”

“So if I was… promised,” she says, testing the feel of the word on her tongue as she chanced a glance at Bellamy, “Then we could still go through with this whole thing?”

“Yes.”

She lets out a gust of air and turns to face him properly. For once his eyes aren’t guarded and she can see the hardened determination that graced his features. If this is what you need me to do, I’ll do it, he seems to say, and Clarke squeezes his hand under the table again, letting her thumb brush over his knuckles. Meeting his eye once more, she gives him the tiniest of nods before turning back to face Roan, who continues to watch the whole thing impassively.

She has to clear her throat twice before she can speak.

“I am promised to someone,” she tells him.

Roan doesn’t seem surprised. If anything he seems amused. “Is that so.”

Clarke nods and then lifts their joined hands to rest on the table. “Bellamy and I are to be married in the spring.”

My dear trans/nonbinary kids, 

If the name your parents chose for you is gender-neutral/unisex, you are still allowed to not want to use that name. 

To use an example, if you’re afab, identify as a trans boy and your dead name is Kim, people might say “Oh, but Kim is unisex, we can still call you that” - You’re 100% allowed to say no and choose a name that you feel more comfortable with. 

There are many reasons why you may not want to use you dead name, even if it is gender-neutral and all of them are a valid reason - and “I just don’t want to be called that” is a fully valid reason, too.

There may be negative memories connected to your dead name, you may prefer a strongly feminine/masculine name, you may want a “fresh start” with a new name, people around you may misgender you more frequently if you continue to use your dead name, even a unisex dead name can cause dysphoria - and that’s just some of the possible reasons. 

It’s your name and your choice. You don’t have to use any specific name, just because it’s gender-neutral. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

The Zodiac Signs as The Perks of Being a Wallflower Quotes

Aries: “But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things.”

Taurus: “We didn’t talk about anything heavy or light. We were just there together. And that was enough.” 

Gemini: “There’s nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons.”  

Cancer: “Maybe it’s sad that these are now memories. And maybe it’s not sad.”

Leo: “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.“

Virgo: “It’s just that I don’t want to be somebody’s crush. If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am. And I don’t want them to carry it around inside. I want them to show me, so I can feel it too.”

Libra:We accept the love we think we deserve.”

Scorpio: “People who try to control situations all the time are afraid that if they don’t, nothing will work out the way they want.”

Sagittarius: “Please believe that things are good with me, and even when they’re not, they will be soon enough. And I will believe the same about you.”

Capricorn: “She wasn’t bitter. She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time.” 

Aquarius: “Standing on the fringes of life… offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.”  

Pisces: “I really think that everyone should have watercolors, magnetic poetry, and a harmonica.”  

What’s your favorite lesson that this world has taught you?”
“I think it would be the part where I learned that people are contradictions. We love the comfort that we gain from sleep yet we dream about the people we cannot have. We are integrally selfish yet we have the ability to think about a person almost continually. We can love, we can hate. We have the ability to see pain—hold it steady and grasp it yet we turn away,” she smiled. In the simplest way, like Earth was an excellent professor and she was her favorite educator. “And perhaps, the most tragic is that we can feel so much than what we thought we can but still, we choose to hide everything.

The Start of Something New Chapter 3 (Jughead x Reader)

Chapter 1, Chapter 2

In which Jughead sees an aspect of the Reader that she never wanted him to see, and the Gang attempts to make amends.

“Jughead!“ Mrs. (L/N) called from the hallway. “Would you like to stay for dinner?“

“You don’t have to,“ (Y/N) silently mouthed at him.

Out of either fondness or fascination, Jughead found himself calling out, “I’d love to, Mrs. (L/N)!“

Though confused, (Y/N) returned her attention to the movie. Since Jughead had never read it, he convinced (Y/N) to put on the movie adaptation of Perks of Being a Wallflower on her laptop, much to her protest (”The book is much more powerful, Jug!”).

“The doctor told me that even if we can’t choose where we come from, we can still choose where to go from there,“ Charlie said to his siblings during his hospitalization.

(Y/N)’s eyes were wide, enthralled with the words she’s heard and read several times before. Jughead watched as she inhaled sharply and held her breath, hugging her arms around herself so tightly it was as if she’d come apart without them. Her nails dug into her back, wrinkling the fabric of her shirt.

“Are you okay?“ Jughead asked, leaning closer out of habit. Out of his habits with Betty.

(Y/N) broke from her trance. “Oh! Yeah, sorry. I just really like this movie.“ She laughed it off, abruptly shutting the laptop. “Let’s get dinner.“
