wearing flats :)

anonymous asked:

Can I get a Daveed fic pls? 28 - Love confession alongside 28 - “If I kissed you right now, what would you do?”

A Meeting

“So Rafa tells me you’re pretty cool.” You smile as you approach the man standing by the dessert table. He’s tall and his hair hangs around his face in braided tresses. He wears a flat billed had with a circular tree symbol embellished on the front. He smiles as you speak to him, teeth showing bright behind his grin.

“And he could never begin to describe how pretty you are.” He replies smoothly, causing a blush to spread over your cheeks. “Daveed.” He holds out his hand, prompting you to shake and your name falls from your lips with barely a stutter as you do so.

A Kiss

“What would you do if I kissed you right now?” Daveed asks, speaking barely above the volume of his own breath.

The room had gone dark, the music ending with the lights and pumping air conditioning. By now, the alarmed yelling of the crowd around you had died down. The pitch blackness is only accompanied by quiet conversations while people wait for the power to return.

“I don’t know.” You reply truthfully. “Do it.” You dare, a shot of thrilling energy pumps through your veins and you wait a few seconds unsure of what he will do.

He follows your orders and you feel yourself floating from the ground, inflated by his lips against yours, defying gravity with merely a kiss.

A Confession

“I love you.” You blurt. You don’t know how else, or when else to say it. You love him.

He stares at you for a moment, silent while he waits for his head to wrap around what you’ve just told him. You love him? Without a doubt, he knows what his response will be, but the words don’t come out of his mouth.

“You don’t have to say it back.” You begin, “I just… wanted you to know.”

“I love you.” He finally echoes you, declaring the words as a complete mirror of your own. “I love you too.” He repeats.

A Vow

“Do you, Daveed Diggs, take Y/N L/N as your lawfully wedded spouse?”

“I do.” He slips the ring onto your finger, holding onto your hand a few seconds before dropping it.

“And do you, Y/N, take Daveed Diggs as your lawfully wedded spouse?”

“I do.” You feel tears streaming down your cheeks as you put the ring on his finger. You grin up at him excitedly, suddenly unsure whether or not you’re dreaming.

“You may kiss.” The officiant finishes decisively.

Your hand cups Daveed’s cheek as you kiss, and his scruff tickles your palm. With his hand securely against your lower back, he dips you and brings you back upright before finally breaking the kiss, a beam on his face that perfectly mirrors your own.


I guess this is kind of three situations but it was sorta the only way I could think to put them together. I hope you liked it!

How to feel like a princess getting ready for a politically important ball

*Use a sugar scrub or make one with ¼ cup of sugar + ¼ cup of oil (like coconut or olive or avocado) + a splash of vanilla extract + a few drops of lavender EO—pat dry when you come out of the water so the oil will stay behind to nourish your skin

*Soak in a bath of honey, milk, and flower petals

*Brush out your lightly dried and detangled hair with a wooden comb that has been oiled with a hair oil (may I suggest camellia oil—it is a light oil that sinks in beautifully)

*If you have acne prone skin, wash your face after oiling your hair

*Remember, “presentation is manipulation”—this is a time for you to shine

*Listen to music that makes you feel powerful and confident—sing along to enhance the effect

*Wear a perfume that you love (vanilla is near universally pleasing if you care about how other people will respond to the scent)

*Dark lipstick is more intimidating—it will make people listen

*Natural lips suggest a friendly, easy-to-get-along-with personality

*If you wear heels, walk confidently

*If you wear flats, walk confidently

*Remember you own the space you exist in

*Wear colors that make you feel powerful—screw advice that would tell you that you can’t wear whatever color you want

*Don’t let others speak over you—your voice is worthy of being heard and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise

Quick Tips On How To Look "Put Together" (Or At Least Try)

*This is just things I do so I look “my best” when I’m going out

  • Keep your skin and hair moisturize (is that even the right word?) and your nails trimmed 
  • Do your eyebrows and put on some lip gloss if nothing else 
  • When if comes to hair, makeup, and clothes, if one is ‘lacking’ make sure the other two are on point
  • Give yourself enough time to get ready
  • Don’t forget your earrings 
  • Keep hoodies to a minimum- I love a good hoodies but I try to avoid them when I really want to look like “I tried”… unless it’s cold then wear the hoodie or get a nice coat  
  • Create a capsule wardrobe -it’s a simple wardrobe of about 25-30 clothing items with coordinating colours that can be used to create multiple outfits
  • When hanging up clothes that have been just washed, place the hanger opposite of the rest so you don’t wear the same item again the next week unless you have to 
  • Opt for dark washed jeans instead of light washed jeans 
  • Wear flats or boots ( depending on the season) instead of sneakers
  • Take care of your shoes, clothes etc so they stay in good condition. 
  • Make sure your clothes fit properly 
  • Make sure you dress to fit the occasion

Really really tired of posts about “femme phobia,“ especially when they imply that "masculine privilege” or “Butch privilege” is a thing.

People look at me and assume I’m straight. This is not oppression. In fact, it keeps me safer than I otherwise might be. I don’t get called “dyke” when walking around in public unless I’m with another woman. (I do get catcalled but that’s misogyny, not “femme phobia”). I am pretty sure I won’t be targeted for anti-gay hate crime based on my appearance.

I get told “you’re too pretty to be a lesbian.” Or asked “are you sure you’re gay?” And yes, that’s annoying, really really annoying. But I am not in anyway oppressed because I am femme or because I am a woman who wears skits and cute flats. I am oppressed as a woman and a lesbian. Society doesn’t hate “feminine” people and privilege “masculine” people. It hates women. And it hates women who don’t conform to expectations about what a woman should be even more.

Butch and GNC women do not have privilege over me. They are not my oppressors. They are not treated better by anyone for being “masculine” as opposed to “feminine.” Butch and GNC women are my sisters. I stand with them. I love them. I refuse to be separated from them and told I should distrust them. I refuse to scapegoat patriarchy on to them.

RC is wearing flat shoes whilst there’s an emphasis on OC’s heeled shoes. In fact, I don’t think OC ever wears flat shoes. Does this mean RC is officially taller than his twin? Considering OC was sickly in childhood it seems possible.

I would love that… and it would match what Lizzy said about OC being shorter when he got back from “that month”.

anonymous asked:

I've read your posts on female armor, and it really helped me with designing armor for my female superhero, but I have a concern: would wearing a flat breastplate inhibit a well-endowed woman? It almost seems like it would make it hard for her to breathe, especially if she's bigger and taller than average (my character stands at 6' 2")

That… is an anime gag.

There are medical conditions which can cause this, but if there’s breathing issues then that’s a clothing issue and if the armor is causing you to be short of breath then… the armor is useless and not doing its job.

Corsets and any sort of binding that doesn’t allow the lungs/chest cavity/ribs/diaphragm to expand will cause shortness of breath in… either gender. It is historically more common in women because of, well, fashion. You didn’t need to be well-endowed to fall prey to the whale-bone corsets of the 18th century. (Which also led to miscarriages.)

The argument you’re referring to is one common among fanboys, primarily as a justification for boobplate and the fetishistic armor choices for female superheroes. For all it’s claims to realism, it has zero bearing on reality.

The weight of your boobs doesn’t make you short of breath or hamper your ability to breathe. It can, in some cases, be painful during high energy activities when they’re bouncing around but the solution is called a sports bra. (Besides, big boobs can disappear fast depending on the type of activity. You ever seen runners or professional female athletes in almost… well, anything? Muscle burns fat, and your chest muscles will start with your chest. No fat, they shrink.)

The Most Common Superpower joke is that women get to keep theirs and stay conventionally attractive when engaging in highly aerobic activity.

If we want to start with the issue in the presentation of female action heroes it begins here. (And that men, and some women, usually don’t understand how breasts work.) Or have this idea the issue has never been addressed because women don’t participate in sport activity anyway.

Breasts. Are. Just. There.

She’s a superhero. Her armor is custom designed. If whoever made her armor didn’t take into account the size of her chest or provide support then they are crappy at their job and armor design in general.

The issues we run into with armor is when it is either:

A) Not yours. Or..

B) One size fits all, but you’d still be able to function in it.

If you can’t move in the armor then that’s an issue that needs to be addressed at a design level but it’s not insurmountable. This is why armorers and tailors exist.

Besides, if the other option you’re considering is boob plate then that wouldn’t solve the issue. I guarantee boob plate is more uncomfortable, and will guide weapon points straight to your heart. This is an argument I’ve seen brought up a lot (by men) to justify the existence of boobplate or going without armor for “realism”. It is not only BS, it’s annoying. It ignores both reality (female combatants of history) and human ingenuity to prop up outdated sexism. It’s like they think female athletes never address the issues of their chest size. Well, I’m here to tell you: we already solved this one and it’s called a sports bra. In the real world, we get a bras that are designed to support the weight of our boobage during athletic activities.

Women can, however, STILL RUN without problems with a regular bra or even no support at all.

You, however, may want to address the underlying sexism nipping at your approach to this character. If you genuinely believe cramming big breasts into a tactical vest is going to cause breathing issues then you’ve got a lot of your own to work out. That is also the problem with sexism. The misinformation is so baked into every bit of common knowledge meant to justify a certain sexist approach then held up as realistic that most people never think about it.

Again, the kind of breathing issues we’re talking about come from corsets and not armor. A corset tightens your waist, and will result in issues because of the diaphram/stomach can’t expand. When performing aerobic exercise, you need your diaphragm (thus expanding your ribs) to breathe. The diaphragm allows more air to pass through your body, which means more oxygen in your blood being carried to your muscles. Without them, you’re stuck breathing entirely with your upper chest, and that will be a problem when engaging in athletic activity. If the expansion of the chest is also cut off, then… you’re really up a creek. This is what causes the fainting fits of the 18th century. Women wearing clothing that doesn’t allow them to draw enough oxygen into their bodies to keep their brains cognizant.

It’s also why you never want to bind your breasts with anything like Ace bandages because Ace bandages are designed to continually constrict around an injury and create pressure to halt the blood flow. They can tighten so much that they crack the breastbone or the ribcage, and that is what causes shortness of breath rather than the breasts themselves being bound.

You don’t get this problem if you bind with just cloth, but it’s also shit for support.

Breathing issues are a problem for men when they wear clothing styles that ensure their diaphragms can’t expand or just don’t breathe with their diaphragm when fighting.

If her armor causing shortness of breath then that’s not armor, it’s fetish gear. It may be great for a bondage session but it’s not meant to be worn combat. (And if what she’s wearing is causing shortness of breath anyway, then she just needs to stop wearing it. That’s still the fault of her clothing and not her breasts.)

Besides, a woman with large breasts would have issues finding bras that fit her anyway and would probably be specially ordering them. Most malls and sports stores have bras for A, B, C, and some D but not a lot. DD’s can have trouble finding comfortable breastwear, especially ones in the six foot range.
