who truly cares

anonymous asked:

Why does Talia call Batman "beloved"? Is he the only person she calls this way or is there someone else? You could say in which comics?

I think Talia calls Bruce ‘Beloved’ because ‘Beloved’ is the direct translation of ‘Habibi’ in Arabic and that would also explain her (and Damian’s) formal manner of speaking, because of the structural difference between the two languages.

She only calls Bruce and Damian ‘Beloved’, obviously because they are the only ones who she’s ever truly cared about. And her father, but her relationship with Ra’s is very complicated, and not as intimate as with Bruce and Damian.
As for in which comics, well, basically almost in every comic she has interaction with Bruce. Just recently, she called him ‘Beloved’ in Dark Days - The Casting (2017).

do you mind making some more lance hcs?? I've read all of the other ones like 3 times.

anon that’s a lot of headcanons to be reading lmao.. i don’t shut up about my Blue Boy. This is half headcanon/half character analysis lmao.

WHOM UP FOR SOME LANGST.

  • Lance has a boatload of insecurities, but I don’t think he has depression. (Time to project) What happens is that his ADHD causes him to hyperfocus on his mistakes to the point that he gets trapped in his Hell Brain, stuck in this bad cycle where he constantly berates himself and inflates his personal fears. But he’s normally able to manage because he has a huge support network- his bigass family.
  • There are definitely little kids in Lance’s family, and being around kids who love you is so nice?? Whenever Lance starts feeling weighed down, he plays with his baby siblings/cousins/neighbors and lets their enthusiasm feed his until everyone is bouncing off the walls and being ushered outside. I’ve probably said this before, but Lance was Born to be an uncle.
  • Anyway, Lance is used to being surrounded by people he has a deep connection with who truly care about him and love him. So at the Garrison, when he was far away from his family, he struggled a little bit but ultimately supplemented his human contact quota by befriending pretty much everyone. If he knows that people like him, then he can like himself.
  • Which is why in space he’s kind of… deflating. Because he’s surrounded by people who have rebuffed him before, and it’s hard not to internalize that, ya feel?? Like:
    • Pidge refused to do anything with Hunk & Lance when they were all at the Garrison, which is fair bc she was in Deep Cover, but Lance obvi didn’t know this so he was honestly kind of hurt? 
      • All his attempts at friendship and bonding were coldly shut down the moment they left his mouth. Lance spent many a sleepless nights wondering what was wrong with him, what aspect of his personality made Pidge hate him on sight. 
      • It… sucks to know that no matter what you do, someone will remain distant, especially if you’re used to making friends. Lance is a fixer, but how can you fix something if you only know part of the problem?
    • Keith straight up forgot who Lance was. And you know that Lance had really built-up their relationship in his mind. Even if it’s because Lance claims they ‘hated’ each other, it’s clear that Lance considered Keith special in that he was a goal to beat/overcome, and he clearly assumed Keith viewed him the same way. So when they reunited and Keith didn’t recognize him… Ouch
      • It hurts to realize that you’ve put way more into a relationship than someone else, but it especially sucks if they never even noticed you in the first place. 
      • Also, lots of resentment issues thanks to the Garrison constantly comparing Lance to Keith. Bastards.
    • Shiro is Lance’s hero, but Shiro is such… a jackass to Lance gsdhkjgd I’m so mad about how Shiro has been treating Lance as the show progresses. 
      • Shiro kind of… assumes that they’re equals, which normally is fine, but Shiro physically pushes/shoves Lance around, ignores his opinions, and tells him to knock it off whenever Lance acts like himself. 
      • And between close friends, that behavior can be ‘acceptable’, but again: Lance looks up to Shiro. So this treatment.. I can only see Lance negatively internalizing it. How good of a teammate can you be if your hero only ever treats you as a joke?
    • And Allura… it’s clear she’s really not interested in Lance’s flirting. Which would be fine, but it’s kind of been their entire relationship so far (mainly because of Bad Writing), so when Allura rejects Lance’s bad pick-up line she kind of rejects any connection at all, including friendship.
      • Like, you can argue that this is Lance’s fault for constantly hitting on her, but Allura’s natural response to Lance is either Carefully Maintained Neutrality or clear exasperation.
      • That’s not exactly… a warm welcome, so I could see Lance slowly just starting to avoid her. Because it SUCKS to enter someone’s line of view and immediately see their smile drop a fraction. It sucks to know that someone immediately has their guard up the moment you try to talk to them. It sucks to feel like you’ve sabotaged any chances before you even knew you had them. It sucks to realize that you, and your personality, made someone feel this way, and that you are the problem. From there, you learn it’s better to just… stay away, and stay quiet.
  • TLDR Lance is really only comfortable comfortable around Hunk and Coran. And the Space Mice, provided they don’t rat him out to Allura.
  • Lance internalizes a lot of stuff lmao. He reacts by overcompensating; when he feels hurt or out of his depth, he amps up his ego, he goes all out with the flirting, he uses bravado to cover up any cracks in his armor. 
    • (If you keep making them laugh, then they’re too busy to laugh at you.)
  • Lance is his own worst enemy. If someone yells at him and calls him a failure, he can get righteously angry and ignore what they said or crack a joke to ease the tension. He can deflect. It’s when he’s alone, when he has time to think, that he begins to place more pressure on himself.
    • You know how people can become paralyzed by their perfectionism? They’re so worried about getting the end product perfect that they can’t even start the process. That’s Lance, to some extent.
  • He prunes his own self/image. If he can’t get something right, he cuts it out of his personality. He doesn’t cling to it. He gets rid of anything he thinks makes him a failure, anything that shows that he’s useless. All those branches, traits, imperfections- they’re snipped away. And what he’s left with, he clings to. This is his absolute. This is his foundation. These are the tenants he builds himself up from. He’s the ladies man. He’s the sharpshooter. He’s the funny one. This is what makes Lance McClain worthwhile.
  • So when that foundation gets rocked… it’s bad. And normally, he can spring back, because he has his support network. But right now he’s billions of light years away from home, stuck with a team that only seems to like him 70% of the time.

Twelve days of Twelve [10/12] - Scene that made you the most emotional

- The Hybrid- what is it? What’s so important you would fight so long?
- Doesn’t matter what the hybrid is. It only matters that I convinced them that I knew. Otherwise they would keep me out with nothing left to bargain with.
-What are you bargaining for?
-What do you think? You. I’d have to find the way to save you.

if you don’t know what your illness is yet…

  • that doesn’t mean you’re not sick
  • you will find answers
  • i believe that you’re sick
  • you will get through this tough time
  • you don’t owe anyone an explanation
  • you will get the necessary accommodations
  • those who truly care about you will help you
  • i love you
  • I believe in you
  • im here for you

also! it was such an interesting contrast how, on one side, you had sara and vilde hugging each other, and from the outside, it would look like they were such loving friends, but as isak pointed out, it was all fake fake fake, because they do not like each other, and then you had isak and sana, who don’t go around trying to show the world that they’re such good friends, and no one would really suspect that they were unless they were actively paying attention to them, but they are actually truly friends who care about each other a lot


while sara and vilde’s friendship is “fake fake fake”, sana and isak’s is the complete opposite of that, they have never once pretended to be friends, and while sara and vilde’s “friendship” is basically a show for the others to, sana and isak’s friendship is just for the two of them

The Signs as Lovers

*use moon or venus*

Aries: The one who’s always down for an adventure. Knows how to separate work and play. Fiesty and needs to keep some independence in the relationship.

Taurus: The one who prefers a movie night at home. Super cuddlers who just wanna love you. Sensual, loves the feeling of skin on skin, the sweet aroma of baked goods and the sound of your heart beating when they rest on your chest.

Gemini: The one who knows it all. They frustrate you with their endless debating but in the end, never fail to amaze you with how much knowledge they hold. They love an intellectual challenge and need to be kept on their toes. Lose the intellectual stimulation and lose them too.

Cancer: The one who sticks with you. Theyre there for better or for worse, if you promise them the same. If they’re low on food or sleep, expect the crab to show it’s claws. They love intimacy with a little spark and a lot of passion. They need lots of love and attention but you’re promised the same in return.

This is the sign of a true leader. Whilst Theresa May was also visiting the site of yesterday’s Grenfell fire, but she refused to meet any of the survivors. The ‘leader’ of this country spoke only to the emergency services, services that have had their numbers and funding cut massively whilst she was Home Secretary before she was PM.

Our current Prime Minister did not meet the people now homeless with nothing whilst they had to watch their lives go up in flames. Think on that.


Jeremy Corbyn went to the site and you’re damn right that he met with everyone he could. He knew that the people of Grenfell Tower needed to see someone in authority there. They need some guideance and some assurances that someone in government is actually listening to them. He knew he would face anger and tough questions, but he went and he met with the Grenfell victims. And its because he actually cares. Look at his face, those emotions are genuine. This man truly cares, for everyone. If he was still just a Labour back bencher, he would have been there. If he wasn’t even an MP, he would have been there, because he’s a damn good human being.

This man tried to introduce a bill in parliment a few years back that would probably have prevented what happened at Grenfell, but the Tory majority voted AGAINST it. They voted AGAINST a law that would have forced builders, landlords etc to make properties SAFE and FIT FOR HUMAN HABITATION. If you voted Tory, i want you to think about the 72 Tory MP’s (all landlords too) plus the rest who voted AGAINST better and safer living conditions for tenants.

Jeremy Corbyn is the leader this country needs. We don’t deserve him, but right now? We need him. A leader who truly cares and a leader who actually listens.

Theresa May has to go.

Let’s talk about the evolution of Percy Jackson throughout the PJO series

He starts off as a confused, lost, awkward 12 year old who had been to a completely different school each year and never felt like he fit in. He’s witty, angsty, sarcastic, and bitter. His looks are average, he has a lack of self-esteem, and doesn’t seem to care about much. He lives with an abusive step-father, and him and his mom have barely anything to get on.

Slowly, as he learns he’s a demigod, he begins to realize that Camp Half-Blood, the place he discovers, might just be his home. He starts to go on quests and actually succeeds, which is something he had never thought he could do. Percy tries to save the world because he finally feels like there’s a purpose to his life. He had felt angry and betrayed by his father, but now acknowledges what Poseidon has done for him, and actually respects him.

Then comes Thalia Grace, who begins to make him question his confidence. He starts to think: Am I really that great? Couldn’t anybody do my quests just as I did? She makes him doubt himself, because deep down he secretly wants to be the boy from the prophecy. He finally feels like there is a reason for him to work hard in life. But Thalia makes him feel threatened, hence the ever-important fight between them.

By the end, they reconcile and learn from each other’s mistakes, which in turn strengthens Percy’s confidence. As the prophecy nears, Percy fights and trains more than he had ever before, and now is seen as a leader. Someone the demigods can count on. Someone they look up to. He takes a risk by jumping into the River Styx, but he does it for his camp, his friends, his f a m i l y. Never would past Percy do something like this. But this Percy does, because he legitimately cares. Later, he storms through rows of monsters, slashes through countless enemies, and hurries from one group of campers to another in order to save his city.

Think about what he had said in the Last Olympian: “‘What did they do?’ My voice sounded tight and angry. ‘What did they do to my city?’”. His city. The city he’s been living in his whole life, the one that he never really thought much about in the past. But now, it’s his city. And right then and there we can tell that he will do anything to protect those who call it their home.

Percy Jackson learns to become a role model for the demigods who are scared out of their minds, because to them, Kronos is a nightmare. They don’t have self-hope, they have no idea what will happen to them. But Percy gives them that hope. He inspires them to fight as hard and strong as they possibly can in order to save their camp. He treats them as strong warriors, and he believes in them. More importantly, he believes in himself.

When confronted by Kronos in the Battle of the Labyrinth, he had had no confidence at all. In fact, he ran. He ran. But in the Last Olympian, there was no running. The only thing he would do is walk straight forward. Because he was tired of countless enemies tormenting him and his friends. He was exhausted, and wanted to put a stop to it. It was difficult seeing Luke, someone he had thought of as a friend, standing in front of him as his greatest enemy. And in that moment, he makes a choice. The choice of leaving the responsibility on Luke, and trusting that he would make the right decision. This was something only a leader could do, and a leader is what Percy had become.

Gone was the lost, scared, confused, and awkward little boy. Gone was the boy who had little self-confidence, who gave into taking a potion that would change his appearance, simply because that was what he had thought mattered. Gone was the boy who felt constantly bitter, who was antagonized and targeted by his ADHD and dyslexia, who lived each day knowing that by the end of the school year, he would surely be expelled, and his mom would have to send him to another one.

The older Percy, the one that saved Olympus, saved the world, is so much different. He manages to last two years (and counting) at Goode High School, something he had never thought he could do. He embraces his flaws because he knows it makes him stronger. He learns to accept his ADHD and dyslexia because it in fact makes him a more powerful demigod. He leads the Camp Half-Blood campers into battle and helps them gain their own confidence. He has friends who truly care about him and would sacrifice themselves for him, just as he would. He gains much more knowledge and experience about his abilities and realizes that they make him special.

Perseus Jackson has had the smoothest, and most perfect evolution throughout the series. 

Thanks Orphan Black

Sarah Manning taught me that a hero doesn’t have to look like a hero. Our lives and paths are defined by our own choices, what we choose to become. When we put those we love first in our lives the rest falls into place.

Helena taught me that our past doesn’t have to define our future. When we find the people who truly love us and care for us that’s what really matters.

Alison Hendrix taught me that it doesn’t matter how others perceive us, it’s how we perceive ourselves. We can make a difference if we want to, there are plenty of temperature controlled bags that are perfect for storing heads.

Krystal Goderitch taught me not to judge people based on first appearances. There is often more beneath the surface if we just search.

Cosima Niehaus taught me that sexuality doesn’t define a person, and maybe her and Delphine taught me some things about my own sexuality.

Rachel Duncan taught me that it is never too late for redemption. Even if we see the truth at the last minute that doesn’t mean we can’t still pursue it.

Felix Dawkins taught me that it’s okay to be myself, and to not shy away from it.

Siobhan Sadler and Delphine Cormier taught me to act with fierce loyalty and love no matter the consequences. The ultimate sacrifice is never in vain when done in love.

Orphan Black taught me that stories can change people and bring healing, and that love is the purest form of motivation. Orphan Black changed the way that I watch television, and the way that I look at the world around me.

All I can say is thanks.

The last clip.

Everyone is gathered around a long table. The table of covered in a variety of wonderful food, and everyone is dressed in their best clothes. They all look beautiful, their faces bathed in golden light from candles on the table.

The camera pans slowly around to each person at the table as they laugh and talk and smile.

We hear Jonas’ voice.

“A world full of opportunities. A world where dreams can come true.”

The laughter at the table breaks his words.

“It sounds fantastic. And it is fantastic. But it’s not the whole truth.”

Jonas is watching them all with a small smile.

“We all have our shame, but that shame is what makes us grow. We learn from it, and we learn from others.”

The camera is focused on Eva, who laughs and drinks from a glass and talks loud. She is surrounded by the girl squad.

“We have learned to stand together.”

To Chris, who is laughing and taking selfies with the balloon squad.

“To dare to be ourselves.”

Vilde is shown dancing with Magnus, then another shot of her leaning on Eva and smiling into Eva’s shoulder.

“We’ve learned that fitting in is never as important as those who truly care about you,”

To Noora, who shares a knowing, smirking look with Sana, which blooms into a smile,

“…and those who truly care about you will always be there when you need them.”

The camera pans to Eskild, who is dancing with Linn,

“We’ve learned never to put ourselves above anyone else,”

Elias looks around to all of his boys before sharing a look with Sana,

“…and to always look out for one another.”

We see Even looking around him, at all of these people who love and care about him, and he pulls Isak in and kisses him on the cheek.

“Because you are not alone,”

Isak kisses Even, then turns to look at Sana, who winks at him.

“…And it’s better to build bridges than walls.”

We then see a shot of just Sana smiling, looking at all of her friends gathered.

“We’ve learned that hate doesn’t come from religion, it comes from fear.”

We see her phone screen light up. A facetime call from Yousef. She picks it up and Yousef’s face appears on the screen. We hear a faint “eid mubarak!” from her phone, amongst all the chatter and laughter and sounds of forks on plates. Sana smiles her widest, happiest smile.

The door opens suddenly. Yousef appears through the doorway, locking his phone and putting it in his pocket.

Sana smiles even wider. She runs up to him and nearly tackles him in a hug. Everyone cheers.

“We’ve learned that true love always finds a way.”

The camera pans back out. We hear the laughter and see the smiles of everyone from the end of the table, as if you are sitting there with all of them. The laughter fades until it’s nearly silent.

“But never forget….”

The screen goes black. The audio goes silent.

“Alt er love.”

A moment of silence, then Laughter Lines by Bastille plays as the credits roll.


“I’ll see you in the future when we’re older

And we are full of stories to be told

Cross my heart and hope to die

I’ll see you with your laughter lines”
