Coming home from a long day at work, you just needed Calum more than anything. But since the studio was taking time, he wouldn’t be home yet. So you’d throw your shoes beside the door, toss your bag on the couch and walk up to the bedroom. All you needed was to wash the bad energy, which was thrown at you at work, away. So you walked towards the closet, finding one of Calums big ass shirts, some underwear and a towel. Then you entered the big bathroom, turning on the shower. Throwing your clothes to the side, you would just get most of your makeup off, knowing the rest would come off in the shower. You stared at yourself a while. You didn’t hate your body, but you definitely didn’t love it. You weren’t the supermodel you wanted to be – you weren’t the type of girl rockstars would be with.

The water from the shower hitting the floor tiles brought you back from the staring contest you were having with yourself in the mirror. You were now freezing after you had been standing naked for a while. The water hit your back and you almost flinched because of the hot temperature. But you didn’t move away from the water. You just stood there, enjoying the water dripping down your back. You would just stand there in silence, letting your hands massage your neck. The calming shower noise almost made you forget to shampoo.

You took a clump of shampoo and threw it in your hair. The water quickly washed it away. After standing looking at the tiles on the wall for a while, the water was getting cold. So you turned around to turn up the temperature. This time it almost burned your back, but somehow you appreciated the pain. Breathing in, you felt yourself getting numb in your legs.

“Y/N? “ You heard one of loveliest voices seeking you, smiling to yourself just by the thought of him. Calum was the one for you, but sometimes you were nervous that you weren’t the one for him?

“In here! “ You murmured with water rushing down your face. The water was running down your body, every one of your imperfections. You heard the bathroom door being opened.

“What are you doing? “ You couldn’t see Calum because of the white shower curtain, but his voice sounded more caring than normally, almost concerned.

“Showering. “ You answered shortly, thinking that it was an obvious activity. You heard his steps on the bathroom floor, making it clear he didn’t took of his shoes. You closed your eyes, still letting the hot temperature flow over your back.

“Y/N! “ Calum had torn away the curtains only to turn off the water. You turned his head towards him, instantly feeling a pain in your neck and back. “What are you doing!? “ He yelped again, this time demanding a different answer.

“I don’t know. Showering. “ You answered without looking directly in his brown eyes. You didn’t knew why he was yelling or why he turned off the water. His grey sleeve was wet from reaching in the shower to turn off the water.

“You could have gotten a third degree burn if you had turned it up more! “ He screamed, almost standing in the shower, so close to your naked body. You knew he exaggerated, but you did figure out why his tone was loud and anxious.

“No, I had it under control.. “ You whispered, putting on panties even though it hurt.

“Look at your back. “ He said angrily, grabbing your shoulders and walking you to the mirror. He turned you backwards and you turned your head so you could see your back. You gasped at the red mark. A big red circle was on your lower back as small loops of white was spread. Calum wasn’t exaggerated with the burn, because it was certainly a first degree burn you had gotten.

You didn’t know what to say. You just allowed your jaw to dangle, while words were trying to form in your mouth. Instead of words, tears was forming in your eyes.

“I didn’t know. “ you whispered, looking at Calum. His eyes were not dry either, which was just making you miserable. The burn was starting to hurt more and more and you didn’t know whether to tell Calum.

“I know. “ He mumbled and threw you the shirt you had brought into the bathroom. “You hurt yourself, Y/N. “

“Not on purpose. “ You said, putting on the shirt even though it hurt. You made small grimaces that probably just made Calum more worried. He then reached for your hand and lead you down to the living room, making you sit on the couch. The pain was unbearable now, so Calum came with some painkillers that you eagerly swallowed.

A small amount of time passed before the painkillers started working. Calum could clearly see that you were better, because he started talking.

“Don’t ever do that again. “ He said, turning his head towards you. You were both sitting on the couch watching tv. His hand had found yours and he had been playing with your fingers the whole time, making you more comfortable.

“I didn’t know I was doing it. “ You whispered while looking in brown puppy-eyes. He was hurt more than you thought he would be.

“Promise me, “ He raised his voice a bit. “That you won’t do that again. “ You smiled, a single tear rolling down your cheek.

“I promise you, Cal. “ You breathed in and saw Calums relieve when the words came out of your mouth.

“I love you so fucking much. “ He said, kissing your cheek, making you blush and mumble a quiet “love you too” to him. “Now, are you ready for the aloe vera? Cause babe, I have to take care of you now. “ He said with a small smirk, clearly enjoyed the fact that he rub you in relaxing aloe vera.

“That wouldn’t be the worst thing. “ You smirked as he jumped off the couch to get the aloe vera. He really does love me, you thought to yourself as a reassuring smile spread across your face.

Patroclus x Achilles (The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller) 

I finished the book a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it, even though I’m not that much into Greek mythology. Well, since I have no time to draw atm I’m just posting some of my drafts. :3 This is one of them.

@itzminyard  Thanks for recommending TSOA to me, I liked it a lot, even though it was really sad. (;_;) I love Patroclus sooo so much! >_< And Briseis. And Achilles is also okay most of the time. XD (When he’s not acting like a unreasonable brat and kinda causing Pat’s death ;_;) *sobs disgustingly*

epikegsters  asked:

Beth I was just looking through some of your amazing nurseydex fics and I was really enjoying them and then I LOOK OVER AT YOUR SIDEBAR AND WHAT THE HELL IS THIS TEAM ROACHES BLASPHEMY. HOW COULD YOU?!?!?!

MORGAN I saw what you posted yesterday about your dad being team roaches and you being DISGUSTED with him and I was like… this is not going to end well for me

BUT THE THING IS, Roaches are KNOWN okay??? Like we know exactly what roaches are there to do, why they’re doing it, and can technically get rid of them… with an exterminator

BUT YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS PERSON!!!!!!!! WHY ARE THEY HERE??? WHY ARE THEY LIVING IN YOUR ATTIC WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE??? WHAT KIND OF PERSON HIDES OUT IN AN ATTIC??? THE BASEMENT MAKES SO MUCH MORE SENSE??? ANYTHING THE ROACHES CAN DO A PERSON CAN DO BUT MORE CREEPILY

There’s three important takeaways from this debate though

1) Ransom and Holster are on different teams and somehow have retained their best bro-ship (we are all living this post on the daily)

2) I’m counting on all you Team Attic people to come DEAL with the crazy murderer in my attic when the time comes. In return, I will deal with the roaches.

3) WHAT IF THE PERSON IN THE ATTIC CAN CONTROL THE ROACHES??? WHAT IF THERE’S BOTH?? WHAT WILL WE ALL DO THEN? (Answer: embrace death. that’s literally all why can do)

Evening comes and settles a warm glow over the Scott mansion. Elle, Jude and Aspen arrive and they all take deep breaths to steady their nerves. 

Jude could not even imagine living in a house so large and grand. He’d spent all of his life living in small hotels and mobile homes. The elegance of the house adds to his nervousness. 

Elle gives him a little speech before they ring the doorbell.

Elle: Jude, you’ve met my father. Our  father. He’s really arrogant, and really abrupt, but he means well. Okay? Don’t let him intimidate you.

Aspen: Yeah, Uncle Travis is…Uncle Travis. He’s not the easiest person to like, but deep down, there isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for us, and for you. And Aunt Eve-

Jude interrupts: I understand. I just want to get this over with.

Just...stop, okay?

PSA for the day: I know you mean well, but telling someone with chronic, long-term health issues that they can get better if only they try! if they are just *willing* to get well! is really fucking cruel.  You think after nearly 30 years of chronic migraines that I haven’t read and tried every. single. goddamn thing?  Yes, that.  And that. And that thing you’re sure I’ve never heard of.  Some have helped, some have done squat.  But none of them have meant that a day like today, when the barometric pressure is all over the place and I have four very high-energy classes right in a row, doesn’t send my headache through the roof, make half my joints ache like crazy, and send my lower back to the third circle of hell.

I honestly believe you have good intentions, but if you really do, then just…stop.

Are you good at crying? Do you let yourself do that?

i try to be. its really difficult though. i know that crying is normal and okay and good and healthy but like, its just so difficult to escape the mentality that crying is for weak people and if you do it youre pathetic. obviously i never think this way for other people, but as soon as i start welling up with tears those subconscious thoughts block me from fully crying very often.

Dragon Quest (just, in general)

never played | want to play | terrible | boring | okay | good | great | a favorite

i like dragon quest. i’ve played a decent amount of both ix and the ds remake of… i think v? they’re good, but unfortunately they’re just a little dry, y’know? they’re not quite as inventive as other jrpg’s. the settings are a bit generic and the writing is never amazing. they do the same thing every time, more or less, they just do it well

at the very least i really appreciate that dragon quest never went grimdark or got too complicated. it’s always been the same colorful, lighthearted fantasy series it started out as

okay, I’m making this post and then I’m leaving it alone:

everything leading up to the end of the ep suggests that Rose and Bismuth’s conflict was 100% idealist vs. pragmatist rather than a true conflict of interest, and some crucial factors point to that as well.

Like I don’t think Rose was all ‘dont fight hate with hate sweaty (:’ at all, she was just an idealist–prepared, it seemed, to see widespread suffering for the sake of ideals–and in a way i actually really respect that that was where she drew the line. The trouble is that drawing that line allowed a lot of suffering that arguably could have been prevented, but would Bismuth’s solution have prevented it? We don’t actually know–it might not have. It could’ve brought about even further wrath and made the CG’s movement easier to vilify. It could’ve ended the war faster…and not in a win for Earth.

Bismuth’s too sympathetic not to come back, and I’m really hoping what she tests in Steven is like…’what does it mean that I can sympathize with someone who’s Down For Murder.’

Rose put Bismuth’s bubble where Steven could find her. She didn’t destroy her superweapon. 

Guys, Rose chose to be prepared for the possibility that Bismuth was right.

↳ For @thatonegirlyouprobablyhate

Some of you might have noticed something kind of funny about people.

Almost none of them like Treasure Planet.

And, considering I joined this fandom well over three years ago by now, this comes as absolutely no surprise to me – and chances are, if you’ve known about this film for longer than, say, a day, it fails to surprise you, too. I mean, we’ve all heard the reasons, haven’t we – valid though they are, it’s depressing to hear them, the millions upon millions upon millions of them. 

  • “Sorry, the sci-fi just wasn’t my thing.”
  •  “I liked it okay, but I can’t see myself ever watching it again.”
  •  “The animation was good, but I didn’t really like the rest of it.”
  •  “It was…sort of weird to me.”
  •  “It doesn’t measure up to Treasure Island.”
  •  “It just wasn’t my cup of tea.”

Or - and here’s the one that gets to me: 

  • “I just really didn’t like the main kid.” 

The words come across as pretty innocent - it’s just a matter of preference, it’s just their opinion, live and let live, nothing wrong with disagreeing…and there’s not. There’s really, really not. You can hate Jim Hawkins as much as you want. But you can look me in the eye and can you tell me why you hate him? Can you tell me why, exactly, that’s the argument I’ve heard the most out of any of them? Can you tell me why, in my 3+ years in this wonderful fandom, in the thousands of days I’ve now spent promoting the shit out of this film every chance I get, can you tell me why that argument is the one I find myself dealing with the most? Can you look at me and can you tell me why you hate Jim Hawkins? Can you do that? 

Because here’s the thing - I can tell you why I love him. And I got shit to back up me up. 

Let’s get down to business. Let me tell you why I love Jim Hawkins - every habit, every quirk, every mannerism, every virtue, and every flaw. Let’s plunge right in.

  • He’s kind.

Sure, you can roll your eyes if you want to, but honestly? Being really, truly, simply, genuinely nice is such a rare quality in the world, and Jim has - and displays - this quality in abundance. I mean, for one thing, bringing Billy Bones to the Benbow when he seems ninety percent sure the guy’s just crazy? Yet he takes a chance anyway, because the sailor’s sick, the sailor’s injured, it’s raining really hard, he shouldn’t be out in this in his state, here, give me your arm, let me help you, you can come in out of the rain and stay in my house for a bit.

And what about the time he met that half-mad robot on Treasure Planet and, despite the fact that BEN blatantly oversteps his boundaries a good ten times (”Will you let go of me?/Stop touching me!”/Will you quit hugging me?”) or so within the first five minutes of their introduction, despite the fact that he is very obviously unhinged from all that time alone, despite the fact that BEN is loud and attention-drawing and the word stealthy isn’t in his vocabulary, despite the fact that he’s putting the captain and the doctor and himself in peril by doing so, Jim allows BEN to come with him - all he needs is to hear about the robot’s century of solitude, his loneliness, his desolation, and he just drops everything and says, “If you’re gonna come along…”  

And don’t even get me started on the deleted scenes - such as the one where he offers to fix this child’s scooter, even though he and this kid have never met before, never even spoken to one another, and yet he offers to fix this scooter because aww the kid’s sad let me fix it for you.

 Because, beneath that black jacket and that dark scowl of his, Jim has a huge, huge heart and it’s there and it’s evident for anyone willing to look. Because Jim just legitimately cares about other people, and there’s no ulterior motive, he doesn’t ask for compensation, he doesn’t expect anything in return, he just genuinely likes helping others. 

(And as I don’t happen to have an image on hand for the child’s scooter bit mentioned above, have a few bonus pictures of times when Jim was nice) 

Comforting a frightened Morph despite the fact that his life is in the most immediate and intense danger

And how about the time he lets a pirate - the leader of a mutiny in which he was supposed to be killed - walk the fuck away from him because he believes there’s good in Silver

Don’t get me started on this kid and his kindness. Don’t. Get me started.

  • And he’s smart.

I don’t mean passing-his-finals-with-flying-colors oh-haha-that-was-a-total-seat-of-my-pants-test can’t-believe-I-pulled-through-with-a-B I-was-pulling-answers-out-of-my-ass kind of smart.

I mean completely, incredibly, off-the-charts, blow-your-mind brilliant. He might be failing his high school classes, but it’s certainly not due to the challenge; he doesn’t put any effort into his work because he just doesn’t care. I mean, we even hear Sarah state that he built his first solar surfer when he was eight. So let’s let that sink in for a second.

This kid 

was no older than that when he built one of these

Just let that sit a minute. He built one of those gizmos 

when he was eight fucking years old. Hell, I’m not one hundred percent sure I understand them now, and he was eight and he understood them so well he could make them. (Sure, he ultimately uses it to cause trouble and ride straight into restricted areas, but it still makes him pretty brainy.) 

And not to mention, when Silver tries to teach him how to steer a skiff, he doesn’t even let the guy finish his sentence before he starts powering it up. Despite the other’s best attempts to stop him, Jim ignites the engine and sends them whirling straight into a comet. He fucking steers a boat - with limited knowledge, considering Silver didn’t get a chance to teach him everything - he steers a boat into a comet, and rides that comet to its end and does it without ever missing a beat, without ever throwing himself or his companion out of the boat, without ever messing up or getting hurt or hurting Silver or anything, just gets the hang of it right off the bat.

And at the end of it, all Silver says is, “If I could maneuver a skiff like that when I was your age, they’d be bowing in the streets when I walked by today!” 

Oh, and did I mention he powers up a century-old crashed boat in sixty seconds? No? Well, he did that, too.

Oh, and he also made another solar surfer, this time at fifteen, out of the useless parts of their failing ship while the planet explodes around them.

And, when said surfer begins failing, threatening to send him plummeting to his death in a raging river of lava bubbling and frothing beneath him, he keeps it going - literally rams it into the wall, striking it against the metal surface until enough friction occurs to power the thrusters again, and he does this all in the space of thirty seconds.

Oh, and he figured out where Flint’s trove was hidden before anyone else, just based on the fragmented bits and pieces he’d picked up from other people

And did I mention yet that he was the only one who could open the map leading to the planet? 

There were people thirty and forty years his senior trying to figure it out

and he figures it out in seconds

  • And he’s brave

Remember when he casually faced down a whole crew of pirates three and four times over, all in the space of twenty-four hours? 

And how about the fact that he refuses, at great risk to himself, to open the map for the pirates - until Silver threatens the captain and the doctor? 

Or when he’s fixing that hundred-year-old boat we discussed earlier, and tells BEN to leave without him if he can’t get away in the next five minutes? 

Oh, and when the star Pellucid goes supernova on their voyage and the hands are sent to secure the solar sails, not only does Jim immediately ascend, no hesitation

he also spots Silver, who followed him there, fall from his perch, and literally fucking throws himself down onto the wood and hauls the cook - who, to be honest, has a good hundred pounds on Jim and probably almost took the kid down with him, and definitely dragged the kid closer to the edge than would be advised - back up to safety. 

And later in the film, he receives an order from the captain to scout ahead and find them a better place to hide - and even though the pirates were spotted seconds earlier, circling the skies in a longboat, Jim expresses no hesitation, simply obeys.

And, oh, uh, you remember that solar surfer we talked about earlier, the one he constructed as the planet bursts into flames and burns down around him? 

Yeah, here he is riding it through the fires and eruptions and random debris, here he is casually risking his life to save everyone else, most of them being pirates who would have loved to see him dead.

Yep, don’t mind him, he’s just saving everyone else. He might die doing it, but damn, he’s doing it anyway.

But wait. I did promise to discuss his flaws as well, and, so far, I haven’t been making good on that promise, have I? 

Fear not, for Jim Hawkins is far from perfect and it’s time for us to explore the reasons why.

  • He’s impulsive

While most readily refer to this as a “Mary Sue trait” and “not really a flaw” , I can’t help but disagree; if we consider it an undesirable trait in a real person, why on earth would we think it little more than a cute quirk in a fictional character? Believe me when I say, Jim’s consistent failure to think before he acts is not a charming little thing - it’s a flaw, plain and simple. 

For all Jim’s kindness, for all his bravery and unfailing ability to think fast on his feet, he is impulsive as all hell.

Like when he, in his first meeting with Silver, throws out several thinly-veiled accusations - showing his cards, playing his whole hand right off the bat on the off chance that his opponent might show his, too. 

Unsurprisingly, of course, Silver does not rise to the bait - meaning Jim revealed everything to the man who will later become his enemy, in a sense losing the only advantage he really held, whereas Silver lost nothing and now has additional information to help him on his way. And all this could have been avoided had Jim just kept his mouth shut. 

And that time when he attempted to eavesdrop on a couple of the other hands cause he thought they were acting suspicious 

But it’s not long before they notice him and immediately shut up - meaning Jim has now given his suspicions away to four different people, four people whom he suspects. (Five, if you count Oxy and Moron as two.)

Or how about when they find that map we talked about earlier, and when he opens it up and realizes it leads to Treasure Planet, his first thought is to follow it? Like, this could be anything. A trap, a red herring, a fool’s errand, and Jim just throws himself headlong into it because look there’s a slim chance it could be treasure let’s go right now! 

I mean, there’s just no room for doubt: Jim is super impulsive, and that’s not a good quality to have. Sure, it gets shit done, but cautious people get shit done too, and they probably get it done better because they’re not making snap decisions every 2.5 seconds.

  • And Jim is selfish

Sure, we all love him. Well, some of you hate him, and some of you love to hate him, but the sentiment stands; we all love Jim, but you can’t love somebody for too long without noticing his flaws. And Jim has his flaws. 

And it’s especially obvious in scenes like this 

where we see that Jim was just out on a joyride while his mother visibly struggles to run the inn by herself. 

It’s obvious he uses that solar surfing hobby to escape, to distract him from his problems after a tough day, but this, in turn, suggests that he feels his problems at the moment are more important than Sarah’s, and so puts himself before his mother.

And he makes things harder on her than probably anyone else in her life, going out and getting in trouble all the time and bringing the police to her door 

Not only is this probably really bad for business, it’s also likely embarrassing and obviously upsetting for poor Sarah - yet Jim offers no apology, offers almost nothing beyond the words, “Mom, it’s no big deal!”  

And when they open the map and realize where it leads, Jim jumps on the chance to leave Sarah

Not just their lonely little planet, but Sarah, he wants to leave her. And though his intentions here are honorable (”We could rebuild the Benbow a hundred times over!” / “I’ll make you proud!”) it still fails to completely sugarcoat the fact that he left her there, lured away by the promise of adventure. 

Because Jim is selfish. 

  • He’s touchy, and defiant as all hell.

Sure, this is a flaw. Sure, it’s not a great quality to have. Sure, it holds him back more than anything, and it probably gets him in more trouble than it’s worth - but I still tip my hat to Disney for introducing this flaw at all. It has been proven in the past that children with absentee parents - particularly boys with neglectful fathers -  tend to become obstinate teens with no regard for authority, and I’m just so proud of them for doing their research on that one. 

Admittedly, however, this quality does cause him more trouble than it’s worth. I mean, he makes himself an enemy out of the scariest alien aboard in the first five minutes, all because he has to have the last word.

As a matter of fact, when I think about it, Jim has single-handedly gotten on the bad side of every one of these pirates on board this ship, with the obvious exception of Silver, and he does it all because he is just that feisty.

On the other hand, however, his pluck is the first thing Silver notices - and likes - about him. It’s obvious that while the pirate captain plans to work the spunk out of him, he can’t help but respect it, too.

Like, for instance, on Treasure Planet, when Jim refuses to allow Silver to leave without him 

there’s an instant where Silver looks like he’s about to argue 

and he could, he could just hold the captain, the doctor, or even BEN at gunpoint, and chances are, Jim would likely obey just to spare those he cares for. Despite the fact that Silver is clearly the one in power here, he gives into Jim’s demands - because, even if he doesn’t like it, Jim’s defiance is something he can respect. They may be enemies now, but Silver recognizes and respects that Jim makes a worthy enemy.

  • And let’s not forget that he’s stubborn.

Seriously, once he’s found something to fight for, he’ll fight for that, and he’ll get it, no matter what it takes, and there’s nobody in the world that can change his mind. If he gets it in his head that he wants to do something, if he gets it in his head that he should do something, he’ll do it, no matter what. 

And in some cases, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It means he has a strong sense of right and wrong and knows the difference between the two, and will do what he believes to be right, regardless of what other people say. He has a moral code, and a strong one, at that, and he rarely deviates from it. And this is actually a good thing when, say, there’s a treasure-hunting pirate captain attempting to bribe him into betraying the captain and the doctor and handing over the map. 

And, when this fails and Silver resorts to trying to frighten him into submission, the kid doesn’t even blink. He can’t be bought, and he sure as hell can’t be intimidated. 

Of course, this isn’t always a good quality to have; while it does make him more resistant to tactics such as temptation, it also makes him inflexible and, in some cases, extremely resistant to change, even when that change would be for the better. 

But that iron will has another advantage. 

  • It makes him hardworking.

Whether it’s as trivial as swabbing the deck, or as enormous as seeking out a legendary treasure trove, if Jim sees the point in a task - if he sees, for himself, why it’s worthy of his time - he will put his all into it, no questions asked. So though most would call him a delinquent, and while the robo-cops on Montressor outright tell him that he is a loser

Jim is actually extremely industrious and capable - he just doesn’t always show it. But it’s there, if you know how to look.

Like when Silver leaves him with this huge pile of dishes in the galley

and he just picks up his brush and keeps right on going 

and in fact, is so determined to finish up that damn stack that he ends up falling asleep in the galley, head resting on the pot in his hand

but the dishes around him are gleaming.

Or how about when he was failing at school at the beginning of the film, and by the end, he has graduated from the prestigious Interstellar Academy? 

Can you imagine how much work it must have taken to get himself into that Academy? I mean, how long did it take for him to pull those grades up, to convince others he was really serious about this, and can you imagine how much work it took to get through the Academy once he got there? But Jim got there anyway, and he did graduate, and he did do all that amazing stuff, and he did it because he works hard. 

Oh and remember

  • He was lost

Though by the end of the film Jim is high-spirited and confident, we know from the beginning that it wasn’t always so. His father’s absence left a hole in him, a hole he felt it was too big to fill - a hole that left him feeling worthless and rejected, it left him feeling angry and defeated, and it left him thinking he wasn’t good enough. It left him with a strong, deep-seated fear of abandonment, and more than that, it left him searching - searching and searching and never quite finding the missing piece he so desperately needed. 

Jim felt he had no future; Jim felt he wasn’t worth a future; Jim didn’t really know where he was going, and that’s the kind of relatability I’ve come to expect from Dreamworks. I don’t go into a Disney film expecting to find real characters, so this came as a pleasant surprise.

And something else I’ll probably never get over

  • Jim is sensitive 

So, this one actually sounds funny. I mean, I just said earlier how selfish Jim is, right? How he’s always putting himself before Sarah? Yeah. That whole argument still stands. It’s just that Jim isn’t all selfish, all the time. Can he be selfish? Yes. Extremely. Is he selfish? Sometimes. But he’s also, as mentioned before, a genuinely nice person. A person with honest empathy. His instances of self-absorption don’t cancel that out.

Now, while most define a sensitive person as “one who understands and feels for others” - and while Jim certainly does that, too - we’ve already tackled that. We’ve talked about Jim as a compassionate and thoughtful individual, and I’m not here to talk about it again, though I could.

No, there are drawbacks to feeling for others, and I’m here to talk about them.

I mean, Jim cares about other people - Jim feels deeply for people, deeply enough to welcome complete strangers into his house and offer lonely individuals a place at his side, Jim just feels for people even if he’s never experienced their hardships for himself. And if he can feel so strongly for strangers, if he can look upon a person he hardly knows and want to help ease their pain, if his heart squeezes upon seeing others’ suffering, how much do you think it hurts when he experiences his own? 

His father, for example. An indifferent, neglectful parent, the heartache they cause, it would sting even the most impervious - but for somebody as thin-skinned and tender-hearted as Jim, it absolutely devastates him. And when the man finally gives up on his family, leaving behind his wife and their eight-year-old, it just tears the kid apart.

As a matter of fact, it hurts Jim so deeply that it takes him seven years just to realize that it wasn’t his fault, or anyone’s; his father’s rejection caused him so much pain that he is well into his adolescence before he can even begin to accept that he’s gone.

But this isn’t just one instance; it’s not merely a festering childhood wound, no. Jim takes the slightest slip-up straight to heart - and upon believing he caused Mr. Arrow’s death, he spends what appears to be hours beating himself up for this perceived failure. 

And ultimately, he might have continued indefinitely had Silver not intervened and comforted him.

And of course, less than twenty-four hours later, Silver tells his bloodthirsty crew - and, unwittingly, an eavesdropping Jim - that his attentions were all for show, that he had to be nice to the kid to keep him from suspecting the crew of anything shady, he had to win the lad’s trust or risk his suspicion…and Jim really believes it, and, in fact, is so hurt, that he appears to take a moment to swallow back tears. 

Jim is just so easy to hurt. 

And to be honest, it’s great; it makes his empathy for others more believable - after all, if his own wounds have left such obvious marks, who’s to say another’s tribulations won’t win over his sensitive heart? 

And, hey, hey, don’t forget

  • He’s just a kid

I mean, he’s doing all this awesome shit, he’s building solar surfers

 and saving lives

and working his ass off and being super kind and impulsive and defiant and selfish and everything, he’s doing all this, and he’s only fifteen years old. Like. He’s fifteen. He’s not even an adult yet. He’s not even of legal age. He’s just casually amazing at fifteen, but what do you think he’ll be like in five years, ten years, twenty?

As Silver says, he really is going to rattle the stars.

Now let’s review before we go: 

  • Jim is kind.
  • Jim is smart.
  • Jim is brave.
  • Jim is impulsive
  • Jim is selfish
  • Jim is touchy and defiant as all hell.
  • Jim is stubborn
  • Jim is hardworking.
  • Jim was lost.
  • Jim is sensitive
  • Jim is just a kid

Just please, for the love of all that is good and holy, don’t ever forget Jim Hawkins.

The best way of describing realizing I'm a lesbian I've ever seen/read was how it dawned on Erica on Grey's Anatomy. She compared her first time with a woman to getting glasses when she was little and suddenly realizing the world was so different than how she thought it was. Just wanted to share cause I almost cried when I saw that scene, it was so accurate :)

You said gray is only intimate with juvia when they're alone. Can you give me a few examples? I literally just started watching the show...

Do you really want some spoilers if you are just starting? Well, okay!

At first, at the Tower, there’s a moment where Gray is very rude to Juvia about Erza with something she says in innocence and it’s a knife to the heart, but comparing that to now, boy, did they grow up.

Gray likes to pretend he doesn’t have any deeper emotions rather than “friends” and to me it’s a defense mechanism so we often see Gray push Juvia away at the beggining, make weird faces and all that, but now we can see the difference with him being much more patient and we can see in his expression he doesn’t care about Juvia always hanging around him.

Usually he shows a lot more of his personal feelings when there are very little people around, but there are two moments I like that they had an audience and he still looked at her with so much fondness it’s crazy.

For example, when they perform the Unison Raid during the games, Lyon and Chelia were there (I think they blocked out the crowd) but Gray is the one who reaches for her and says they can do it because it’s “them”.

In here, Juvia is looking forward while Gray is looking at her. There are hundreds of people around, they just defeated two powerful mages but instead of looking to what they were doing, it seems Gray is so confident with their team up he doesn’t even have to look. And with Gray is all about the action.

For more Gruvia development, go [here] and enjoy the amazing manifesto and I hope you enjoy the ship! ;)

I just really like Overwatch, okay?! When I went to get my hair done I was like “I want my hair like this” and showed them a picture of Zarya and they knew what Zarya was so it worked out well.
