wonderful ways to say no

Talking with writers online

Their stories: Amazing grammar, soaring vocabulary, beautiful imagery and prose which flows like a river.

In chats: no capitalisation or punctuation, swears like a sailor, misspellings everywhere, acronyms and abbreviations every five words, idek

somebody responded to us posting that emma watson is a clueless activist with this

and i’m just like… yeah because emma watson was born to rich parents and got sent to a freaking private boarding school in oxford and getting tutored in drama from a very young age, and landed a role in a very visible movie franchise .

like… both people who work on this blog are lower middle class at absolute best. if i had a rich mummy and daddy that sent me to rich people school and paid for a better education then maybe i would be a some kind of ambassador that makes speeches that don’t say anything as well, but instead i’m just a local activist who tries to support people in the best way she can with the resources she has.

for what it’s worth i’m from roughly the same geographic area as emma and i’m just like… maybe if i was a rich pretty cis girl i could work for the UN in promoting equality in an ineffective way too, but instead i’m working class, transgender and finding it hard to even get a job as a shitty position in the same city she went to school, all because we both played the cards we got dealt and she happened to have all aces.

jesus. think before you speak, y’know?

Being in love is a very strange thing. Your thoughts constantly drift towards this other person, no matter what you’re doing. You could be reaching for a glass in the cupboard or brushing your teeth or listening to someone tell a story, and your mind will just start drifting towards their face, their hair, the way they smell, wondering what they’ll wear, and what they’ll say the next time they see you. And on top of the constant dream state you’re in, your stomach feels like it’s connected to a bungee cord, and it bounces and bounces around for hours until it finally lodges itself next to your heart.

Maybe I’m not used to it. Maybe I’m afraid of getting hurt, being rejected, for being myself.

I was getting close to 500 followers and that’s why i went around a little of my friends and followers that i talk to frequently - what was the thing i have drawn that they liked the most. So,,,,, here they are:

Flower boy Taehyung:

With a higher vote is Kookiemonster soulmate au:

And the absolutely highest is MERMAN JIMIN AU:

And yeah, thank you so much for sticking around, please take these drawings as my thank you pack gift ;_; I am very thankful.. i don’t even know what i could do to show the appreciation 

something paradise

cs au. ‘there’s something about breaking an engagement and leaving the man you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with and finding yourself roommate-ing with the man who’s loved you through years and boyfriends and breakups and uncertainties that makes a person a little weepy, a little off balance, a little unsure.’ 

(i’ve been working on this for at least six weeks, and it’s finally, finally finished, and i’m something like pleased with it. (thanks to swallowedsong​ for looking over it and helping me and stuff.) so, enjoy whatever this is. (really long, among other things. just a head’s up.)

            She leaves him on a Tuesday.

            Packs up her share of the apartment instead of going to work, keeps Henry home from school so he can help. Wraps picture frames in scarves and sweaters, shoves books and DVDs into boxes, throws pots and pans and casserole dishes into the back seat. One trip to unload these small bits, another for Henry’s bed and dresser and nightstand.

            It takes just over 6 hours to remove every trace of them from this apartment that was supposed to be theirs and is now just his, but she doesn’t cry as she sweeps through one last time. As she takes her key off the chain, locking the door behind her and slipping it underneath. She doesn’t feel broken or empty. Isn’t sure what it is pulsing through her, something that tastes like regret or maybe failure.

            “Sorry, kid,” she says, eyes still dry, once they reach the car. He just shrugs. Smiles a small, sad thing.

            “It’s okay.”

            It’s not.

            But maybe it will be.

Sherlock loves John. Sherlock sees John as his family. Sherlock would kill his own real blud family in order to keep John alive. John is his family and he loves John more than anything else in this world. Nothing you say can convince me otherwise.

But MY question is: does John see Sherlock as his family? Does John love Sherlock back?

anonymous asked:

Tbh I can totally imagine a pissed-off Royai fight if there is only one bed because Roy would be (as any decent gentleman) like okay sure the lady gets the bed and Riza would be no way the superior officer can't sleep on the floor, you get the bed Sir. 8-)

“Sir,” Riza said with more authority. “I insist that you take the bed. Your wellbeing is my number one priority. That includes your health. I won’t have you getting sick or sore because you slept on the floor.”

“Exactly my point,” Roy argued, folding his arms over his chest. “Your wellbeing is just as important as mine. If you don’t get adequate sleep you won’t be able to protect my back. It’s critical that you get a good night’s sleep for both our sakes.”

Riza huffed and turned her gaze toward the bed. Roy knew that he was breaking her down bit by bit. Because if there was anything he had learned from her being his shadow for so long, it was that she could not resist his orders about her health if it directly impacted his.

anonymous asked:

Yousana prompt: " do you want me to leave? "

Sometimes it disturbed Yousef how much he paid attention to Sana; her presence, her behaviour, even the little details. He knew that she smiled rarely, but when she did, there was nothing else like it; it was like the whole fucking room lit up with her. Yousef noticed the way she acted when she was nervous, the way she looked down when she was wondering what to say next. And that was why it didn’t take him long to notice that Sana was gone from the party full of strangers that they had  crashed with Yousef and Sana’s friends.

Luckily, Eva - who was already quite drunk - corrected Yousef when he mentioned his concern over Sana’s disappearance: “No, no, she said she’s going to the bathroom!”

Yousef raised his eyebrows, gave Eva a thank you he was pretty sure she didn’t even hear from the loud music and started making his way through the crowd to the bathroom he had seen when they had arrived to the stranger’s house. And like expected, the door was indeed locked.
Yousef knocked on the door with enough force so that Sana could surely hear it over the loud music. “Sana? Are you in there?”

About ten seconds passed without a reply. “Yeah?”

Yousef sighed with a feeling almost close to relief in his chest  - maybe he had been truly anxious that Sana had really left or something. “You okay?”

Yousef swore she could almost hear Sana rolling her eyes because of the boy’s nosiness - Sana was a girl who took no bullshit and didn’t like people sticking their noses into her life and stuff, but somehow Yousef couldn’t stop himself; even if he really, really wanted to. Because somehow he felt like if he tried hard enough, something in Sana would soften and she would let him in.

As expected, there was no reply to Yousef’s question; this time it was his time to roll his eyes at the younger girl’s stubbornness. Yousef was about start persuading the girl again when he got bumped into by a couple of drunken boys a couple of years younger than him; he threw an irritated look at their direction and sighed, knocking on the bathroom door again, this time with more force.

“Look can I just, like, come in? It’s fucking crowded in here,” Yousef begged while he tried to get out of the way of some new people rolling in from the door. A few seconds later he was standing inside the bathroom, closing the wooden door behind himself with a thankful sigh of relief. It was much quieter, and even though the room was small, somehow it felt much more roomy than the rest of the crowded house.

“What do you want?” Asked Sana, who was apparently fixing up her lipstick in the mirror. Her gaze met Yousef’s in the mirror, and she raised her eyebrows to give her question more weight. Yousef replied with a careless shrug.

“To check if you’re ok,” he said like it was an obvious thing to be realised. Sana  let out a sarcastic chuckle and went back to perfecting her lipstick.

“You’re treating me like I’m a little girl,” Sana said and looked up in the mirror with an accusing expression. “I’m not. I’m fine.”

Yousef smiled and stuffed his hands into his pockets, closely examining the tile floor. “Okay, that’s chill.”

“Are you gonna leave?” Sana asked. Her voice was steady and sterile of any emotions that would indicate that she would want the boy to stay, but after asking the question, her eyes got lost in his for a quarter of a second in the mirror. And there was something, as crazy as it sounded; Yousef saw something. It was a spark of warmth and comfort in her eyes, something that asked him to stay even when her words told him not to. And fucking hell, he wanted to stay right here.

“Do you want me to leave?” Yousef asked instead, dodging Sana’s question. She looked up again, and when she saw the familiar smirk on Yousef’s face, the corners of her mouth quirked upward.

Sana turned around to properly face him, and the warm spark in her eyes grew. For a few seconds she just stared at Yousef until she really, truly smiled in a way that seemed to light up the entire damn room and said:

“No.”

“I listen attentively to my teachers, and I tend to be deeply influenced by what they say. But when I told the teachers who usually said good job to me that I wanted to apply to a U.S. high school, they said it wouldn’t work. They said that the Korean and American education systems were too different, so they wouldn’t really choose me when there are kids who learned that way all along. I was upset, and I wondered if they were saying those things because they’d already seen my limits. So I was afraid even while I was asking for recommendation letters. No matter how well they might write, in the end, it will be painted with a certain nuance. I became afraid that, if the teacher had even the slightest doubt about my path, it might come out in the writing.”
“Is there also a person who helped you?”
“The person who helped me was also a teacher. This teacher supported me from the very beginning. I let all my worries flood out and said, ‘I don’t know how many schools I should apply to.’ The others said it wouldn’t work, but my teacher told me, ‘No matter how many you apply to, you’ll get all of them.’”

“전 선생님들을 잘 따르고, 선생님들 말에 영향을 많이 받는 편이에요. 그런데 평소에 저한테 잘한다고 해주던 선생님들이, 미국 고등학교에 입학원서를 넣고 싶다고 했더니 안 된다고 말씀하시더라고요. 한국의 교육방식과 미국의 교육방식은 너무 다르고, 그대로 배워왔던 애들이 있는데 굳이 저를 뽑으려하겠냐고 하셨어요. 속상하기도 했고, 제 한계를 벌써 보셔서 그러시나 하는 생각도 들었어요. 그러니까 추천서를 부탁드리면서도 두려웠어요. 아무리 잘 적어주시더라도 결국 쓰는 사람의 말의 뉘앙스가 묻어나잖아요. 그 선생님이 조금이라도 제 진로에 대해 의문이 든다면 그게 글에서 드러나지는 않을까 싶어서 조마조마하게 되더라고요.”
“힘이 되었던 사람도 있나요?”
“힘이 되었던 분도 선생님이었어요. 처음부터 저를 응원해주신 선생님이요. 제가 '몇 개의 학교에 지원을 해야 될 지 잘 모르겠어요'라고 한 분께 고민을 털어놨더니 '너는 몇개를 지원해도 다 붙을 거야'라고 말씀해주셨어요. 다들 안 될 거라고 하셨는데…”

A/N : Surprise!!! I am back! After months of procrastinating here is the long awaited part II! Thank you for all the praise for part I and I hope you guys like the sequel just as much. It’s not edited properly and there might still be mistakes but I really just wanna get this out! Comments and criticism are very much appreciated. :)) 

Part I 


For the first time since you’d found out that you could see strings, breathing felt easy. 

You felt like you were floating, grasping onto the air with your fingertips, flapping your arms as if wings had been stitched onto the flesh like seams to keep you airborne and for fleeting moments, you embraced the sensation of liberation

You couldn’t deny the way your cheeks ached in a way that was anything but unpleasant and your hair in those brisk moments spiralled behind you in its frenzy of locks and screaming with sovereignty.

Despite the ruins you were the cause of, despite the flames you’d set alight and left unattended, despite all things destruction that you were the cause of- oddly, you’d never felt so free.

You’d never felt so close to the air.

it shouldn’t hurt
love shouldn’t hurt
but it does
but this love does
there’s a constant ache in my chest
every time i see you, i ache
and there’s this sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach
a heavy feeling that builds up into my throat
i feel like i’m going to be sick but i never am
i just can’t say anything
i wonder if you feel the same way because you aren’t saying anything either

it shouldn’t hurt
but it does
and nothing makes it feel better
drinking doesn’t help
smoking doesn’t help
crying doesn’t help
sleeping doesn’t help
you don’t help

it shouldn’t hurt
but it does
and i can’t breathe when we’re in the same room
but not in the way that it used to be
i was once so happy
i still am happy
but
i’m not
i know i’m not
i don’t think you are either

it shouldn’t hurt
but it does
this silence is killing me
it’s suffocating me
drowning me
it’s been three days since we’ve said a word to each other
and i want it to end but i don’t know how
i want everything to end but i don’t know how

it shouldn’t hurt
but it does
i love you
you say you love m
but it doesn’t feel like it’s enough anymore

it shouldn’t hurt
but it does
i want you
but i don’t want to feel this way anymore
i don’t want it to hurt anymore

From The Desk Of…

Go read this amazing, well written and beautifully executed story that will steal your heart from the get go.

The pictures above are my humble way of saying thank you to the wonderful writers @fictorium @bridgetteirish

anonymous asked:

Hey! I was just wondering, can't you also use 때문에 as a way to say because? Can it be used in the same way as -아/어서?

There are absolutely countless ways of grammatically expressing “because” in Korean without directly using 왜냐하면 and each way has its own nuances and implications. We’ll be seeing a lot more grammar points covering “because” as lessons go on. :)

때문에 itself is only used for nouns. [noun]+때문에 [result/action].

일 때문에 공원에 갈 수 없어요.
Because of work, I can’t go to the park.

But using 때문에 this way is not the same as adding -아/어서 to the verb 이다 (to be). 일이라서 (because it is work….) and 일 때문에 (because of work) have two different implications.

You can use -기 때문에 to attach to a clause in the same way you use -아/어서, and then it would hold the same meaning.

저는 여자이라서 로맨스 영화를 좋아해요.
저는 여자이기 때문에 로맨스 영화를 좋아해요.
Because I am a girl, I like romance movies.

시간이 없어서 공원에 갈 수 없어요.
시간이 없기 때문에 공원에 갈 수 없어요.
Because I don’t have any time, I can’t go to the park.

-기 때문에 can be used with verbs, adjectives, 있다/없다, and 이다/아니다. It also has a bunch of other rules (such as using -기 때문에 to explain a situation at the beginning of a conversation as opposed to answering a question) that I’ll explain in depth when I get to the lesson I have planned for -기 때문에 in full.

Hope that helps. :)
