which is probably more useful let's be honest

Things I assume about Ford because she’s a stage manager: 

  • has a penchant for dealing with drama (but not acting drama) 
  • knows how to fall asleep at any given opportunity 
  • flip side: knows how to run on three hours of sleep and only act “generally tired”
  • has literally seen/heard everything and therefore is not phased by nudity, sex stories, stories about about really dumb shit people did while on drugs
  • will not fix your love life for you, but will lend an ear while you work on the shit you’re supposed to be doing 
  • will give you sex talks because you probably don’t know as much as you think 
  • is completely used to people breaking out into song 
  • even if she didn’t play an instrument, she can read music well enough
  • probably was in choir at some point, probably needs to be reminded that her voice is nice 
  • is a blow dart champion 
  • is actually wonderful at improv 
  • always has tape, a pen, and paper on hand 
  • is used to muttering to herself “you’re doing your job if no one notices you doing it” 
  • has probably told countless people the same thing 
  • despite being great at yelling, she definitely gives Bitty a run for his money in the “passive aggressive” banter department
  • has more cardigans than dex has flannel
  • often looks like she has her life more put together than the rest of us, sometimes this is accurate
  • you want to divert the conversation? Ask her what her favorite show is or ask her if she’s seen ___ and prepare yourself for a very lovely (if not long) conversation
  • has a Gordon Ramsey like temperament: which is to say if you made an honest mistake “hey no harm, let me help you” if she’s told you how/why to do something eight times and you fucked up? You better run bitch

Batmom x Jason Todd Drabble

A/N: Yep, got another one. I’ll sort the batboys out, then move onto the batgirls.

Warnings: Swearing


The Red Hood often smoked, whenever you found him out in Gotham or even in the Batcave on those extremely rare occasions, he would be smoking 90% of those times which was much more than he used to, leading to a growth in concern. So, when finding him leaning on his motorcycle lighting up a cigarette while shopping you decided to confront him about it.

“Smoking is bad for you, ever thought about cutting down?” You greeted happily, not wanting to appear as nagging him - especially not Jason.

“Hey (y/n), what are you doing outside of the manor by yourself? The others might get worried or somethin’.” He smiled turning to you, to be honest you were probably his favourite person out of the Bat Clan since you just let him get on with his life rather than tell him it was wrong, irresponsible or reckless.

“Grabbing some items from the shop, you want anything? No cigarettes though.” You calmly stated which earned you a look of disappointment from Jason.

“Why do you even care about this?” The man questioned, not sure as to why you kept bringing his smoking habit up.

“Because I care about you and your health smartass, plus you’re smoking way more than usual and I don’t want you to get sick or anything.” You replied, sarcasm lacing your tone slightly surprised that he seemed to think you didn’t care.

“I’ll be fine (y/n), I died remember? Until you know what that feels like you don’t get to tell me what I should be doing.” He bluntly responded, although you were used to this, whenever someone showed they cared he would immediately get defensive.

“I kinda know what it feels like, part of me died along with you Todd. See, it hurts when you lose your son - adoptive or not.” You retorted, with slightly more aggression than intended, you left him to it after that.

Jason was slightly shocked at your tone and words, they would never usually get to him but because it was you they had a rather unexpected impact. It felt like a dagger right to the heart, was it guilt? He thought he was way past that - whenever he brought up the whole death thing to anyone, that was the end of the conservation since hardly any of them could say they lived twice.
Not you though, you fired back at him and the fact you thought of him as your son actually warmed his heart, he felt happy and loved which only strengthened the guilt. The biker took a long painful sign, throwing his head back in the process, he got on his motorcycle and sped down the dark streets of Gotham.

The next day Jason had actually come to Wayne Manor in search of you, as much as he hated it you were more important. Just this once.
Upon finding you he handed you the box of chocolates he’d brought which you gratefully accepted with a smile.

“I’m - (y/n) I’m sorry, I was out of order yesterday. I know you care and - um, thanks for always being there for me y'know.” His voice quietening with every word and he sheepishly rubbed the back his neck which you found quite amusing.

“I’m sorry too Jay, you can smoke if you want I shouldn’t have let my worry get the better of me.” You replied and engulfed him into a hug, to which at first the man was resistant but soon melted into it.

“I’m not goin’ soft. Just so you know.” He assured both you and himself.

“Bullshit.” You whispered, earning a glare as Jason hastily left the Manor before anyone else saw him.

Much to your appraisal, Jason had put in an effort to never smoke while you were around which the others had also noticed but you threatened them to never mention it.

anonymous asked:

I'm a latina girl who has always found East-Asian/Souhteast-Asian features very attractive (mainly because of the eyes) and much like the girl next-door would love to go out with a green-eyed guy, I'd love to date an Asian men, provided he has a nice personality. No, I wouldn't turn out a western guy just cause he's not Asian, or travel to Asian countries in order to find myself a husband or pay for sex. I just find Asian men particularly beautiful, how is that wrong to admit?

It’s wrong to think that because what you’re saying is based on generalizations about our appearances that aren’t true of all of us as well as exclude and devalue mixed race East and Southeast Asian men.

It’s wrong to think that because to call East and Southeast Asian men “particularly beautiful” is exotification, since you could only be saying that based on what’s supposedly different about us. Saying it’s because of “the eyes” is particularly exotifying; people of literally any race can have eyes like that. It’s just more common in certain Asian demographics (not all of which are East and Southeast, btw).

It’s wrong to think that because if you have a mixed child they will pick up on your fetishization, especially if it involves exotifying them, and they’ll probably be creeped out as well as embarrassed that they were the product of a fetishistic parent.

But despite it being a wrong thing to think about us, it’s not a wrong thing to -admit- if you do think it, because being honest with us about how horizontally aggressive you are lets us know that if we have any respect for ourselves, we should reject you and possibly file a restraining order.


jobs are bullshit

or at least the typical american concept of 9-5 work and jobs

healthy people should get 7-8 hours of sleep generally, so if you do that you got 16 hours left in the day

society wants us to work 8 of those hours. the vast majority of available jobs are boring and unfulfilling and even the ones that aren’t that bad most of us probably wouldn’t do them if they didn’t pay us (and almost no job pays anywhere near enough to account for stealing away a literal third of your day)

or more really, because in the remaining 8 hours, what are you supposed to do? have fun? you can’t have too much fun, because you still need some of those hours to sleep. if you don’t get enough sleep, your health suffers and you feel like shit at work which makes you worse at your job

and lets be honest, probably most people aren’t “having fun” in those remaining 8 hours, they’re just unwinding because they just slaved away all day at work. they probably just literally spent the entire day working. they won’t get to enjoy the sunlight, businesses are getting ready to close.

In the typical set up, people work monday through friday and have weekends off. To quote Doug Stanhope “you work 5 days to enjoy 2. i don’t know if you gamble but them’s shit odds.”

If you get 7 hours of sleep, working 40 hours a week, 5 days a week is. literally. 33 percent. of. your waking life.

You might disagree, but personally I think that’s bullshit and I refuse

"You okay?"

How many times has Daryl asked Carol this question, in different ways, verbally or none verbally. I think I’ve lost count.

He does it more than anyone else because to him its important. He needs to know that she is ok.  To him it really doesn’t matter  whats she’s done or planning to do, it’s how it affects her. Its her well-being that is important to him.

How she feels

Even if the question isn’t verbal its still there.

‘You okay?’

if you want to tell me its ok if not that’s that’s okay too..

Physically and emotionally. It don’t matter. It only matters if she’s alright or if she’s not and if can help in any way. Even though he may not know what to do. Her well-being is top priority to him.

Its the first thing he thinks of when he comes in the door is checking on her.  And of course he asks her again..

'Are you goo?’

There is such and honesty to this caring and concern, and it comes from the love he has for her. This need to look after her even though he knows she’s capable of taking care of herself. To protect her because he knows she’s not damn invincible and these things hurt her.

It gives him the need to  ask the questions no one else seems to.

Because he knows she’s not okay. She’s not handling whatever it is that’s hurting and that look says 'you can tell me..  you can tell me anything.'  Because he’s not gonna think she’s terrible or a monster or anything. All her cares about is how its affecting her. The concern isn’t fake here. It’s real.

And she trusts him probably more than anyone else, Which allows her to be as honest as possible. To let some of that pain and vulnerability seep through.

“They didn’t do anything to us..’

Its what we did to them…

Both of the last examples are as honest as she’s been and its with him. He knows somethings not right with her, when everyone else buys the act.

(last 3 by @hypernovadust])

Daryl loves Carol and understands her better than anyone. And when it comes down to it its always about how she feels  not his own feelings on the on the matter. He does have them, but hers are what’s important to him. He wants to help, but doesn’t always know how.  Maybe he doesn’t realize that’s he’s been doing a pretty damn good job of it in spite of what he may think.

Now he himself is a mess as well, stuck in his own painful cycle but I want people to remember, that if he knew Carol was gone, Dwight would cease to matter to him. She would be the priority.

Because that man loves her. In that beautiful, wounded way of his.  And no one else loves her like that. It gives me the feels something awful..
