dont get me wrong i love jotaro kujo and i love stardust crusaders so dont think this is jotaro hate but like the whole fandom rides jotaro like a damn bike but then some people turn around like “giorno is so boring”. im not going too deep on this analysis because im tired and i want to sleep but like…
giorno is about as expressive at first glance as jotaro, just as calm and composed, (and albeit has a vastly different personality) but genuinely has a lot more thought and intention in the way his personality is, and a deal more complexity as show by the narrative. while jotaro seems to serve as an archetypal “strong silent” character (while subverting some tropes and not entirely playing into them in other cases because araki knows how to properly write archetypes without making them uninteresting), giorno’s design seems to be a lot more intentional in regard to his heritage.
giorno displays a mix of jonathan and dio’s characteristics. he’s charismatic, intelligent, tricky, but also kind, caring, and passionate. He’s got a very righteous drive and a strong moral compass, but it is self-serving (thought not malicious) and with something akin to dio’s unrelenting ambition, he’s a little terrifying and unstoppable. He also has a tendency for cruelty, like Dio, but not towards his allies, whom he comes to rely on very deeply, like Jonathan.
He has a lot of his own traits as well. he doesn’t lose his shit like dio does, but he clearly shows distress and rage, though he seems to keep a pretty good grip on himself so as to control those emotions and use them to his advantage, instead of letting them control him. there’s even more to his character, stuff that even the first few chapters of part 5 make clearly evident. he’s a product of his ancestry and his abusive childhood as well as his redeeming encounter that led to his life’s dream… giorno is altogether a really interesting character but he gets so much more shit even when his very same (baseless) criticisms could apply to a character that the fandom worships. i get that the translations arent the best but its not that deep yo
tl;dr if you dont like giorno i beg u to reconsider he is a good boy
Summary: Senior Rowan Whitethorn is new to town. It doesn’t take him long to get use to a new school, make new friends, even join the local hockey team. But it also doesn’t take him long to meet sophomore and figure skater Aelin Galathynius. And it doesn’t take him long to realize one thing; he can’t stand her.
Aelin had to resist the urge to roll her eyes. She glanced over at Nehemia, but the dark skinned beauty was too busy backing into a parking spot of the school parking lot to pay her any attention.
“Uncle Orlon,” The car came to a stop and Aelin sent Nehemia another pointed look - “Isn’t going to kill me for added a little extra sugar in my coffee.” A pause. “Uncle Weylan might though.”
“There are several things wrong with your statement,” Lysandra spoke up from the back of the car. She leant forward to look at herself in the rearview mirror, fixing her hair as she spoke. “One, you got a gingerbread latte and added three extra packets of sugar. I wouldn’t call that ‘a little’. And two,” Lysandra turned, sending Aelin a deadly smile. “Coach Weylan will definitely kill you when he finds out.”
“If he finds out.” Aelin smirked, taking a big sip of her over sugared drink.
The message I want to get across to you guys, especially of the LGBT+ community:
This is what I believe about God:
He loves you. He is all knowing. He is good.
When He says that something that you’re doing is bad, He’s not saying that you’re bad.
He made the stars, and the Earth. He knows where the universe ends. He created every single planet with care. He knows how many hairs you have on your head. He knows how many blades of grass there are in the whole world. He knows how many pebbles there are in the sea. He knows what is at the bottom of every single inch of the ocean. He created your complex body and mind. He knows e v e r y t h i n g.
So He knows what is good for us and what is not. He loves us enough to tell us about these things and warn us to stay away from them.
We. Need. To. Trust. Him.
If He says not to do something, I know how hard it is to say “why God? I want to do this. It feels good.” But we can only see three feet ahead of us. We feel things and in the moment that is all we know. We think for ourselves and believe that what we have thought about is truth, above all else.
But He knows. He doesn’t just claim to know. He knows because He made. He made e v e r y t h i n g and He knows e v e r y t h i n g.
He made your eye. He knows what is harmful for you to look at.
He made your hand. He knows what is harmful for you to touch.
He made your ear. He knows what is harmful for you to hear.
He made your mouth. He knows what is harmful for you to eat.
He made your feet. He knows where it is harmful for you to go.
If we would only trust Him instead of trusting in our own feelings and thoughts, we would be way, way better off, because not only does He know everything, and He loves us, so He warns us of things that are bad for us. If only we would listen.
This is why He calls us to repentance. Not because He is an insecure God who demands obedience and worship so that He can feel good. He calls us to repentance because He loves us and He hates to see us doing things that are harmful to us. He calls us to worship because He knows that the beings He created fare the best when they are near to Him.
at the Nissan, another day of first year girls worshipping her best friend. It
was typical, y/n was quite used to the fact that girls were practically
drooling while looking at him. She laughed and shook her head looking at
William, he shrugged while the two girls went toward Chris. He was well aware
of the fact that they were totally mesmerized by him, so he flirted with them
both and then went to her table and sit.
night about to come?
while Chris was sitting next to y/n. She was always welcomed at the
Penetrators’ table, being Chris and William’s best friend she was almost part
of the group.
and the boys cheered, he smiled and started to drink his Coca-Cola.
– I like
the blonde one.

smirking. Just another normal day at the Nissen.

donuts he had brought her.
– I adore

their day, they used to spend it together.
– So, how
were the girls?
sitting next to him and biting a donut, he shrugged.

He said and
she laughed. Chris and y/n were friends with benefits. No one knew but they
started to fuck each other some months before. It all started during a
Penetrators party at Jacob’s…
– I bet y/n is the
best kisser in the whole Nissen.
Said Julian looking at
her, she shrugged and opened a beer.
– You are probably
She said taking a
shot, Chris smiled.
– Prove me.
He teased her thinking
that she was not going to take him seriously. Y/n simply stood up from the
couch, grabbed his face with both of her hands and crushed her lips against
his. He remained so surprised that he couldn’t move for some seconds, then he
pulled her closer and kissed her back. That kiss, accompanied by the screams
and the whistles of the other boys, made them realize how much they craved each
other. At the end of the party, he drove her home and decided to stay for the
night. The rest, is history.

neck and gave her a kiss on the left collarbone.

making her want more. She rubbed her body on his, already feeling his hard on
pressing against her inner thighs.
Schistad, shut up and fuck me.
his eyes lighted up in lust while he took her and gently laid her down on the
couch, he moved on her body and looked at her in the eyes.
– As you
MONDAY, 9:00 P.M.
– Where is
to William, he pointed at her. She was at the other side of the hallway, and
she was talking to Jonas. Chris looked at her and saw her laugh while she was
touching his shoulder; he knew her best friend, she was flirting and he was
totally keen on her. Who wouldn’t have been? She was beautiful, smart, she was
sarcastic and hot as hell.
– It looks
like someone will have a busy night.
when y/n joined them near William’s locker; she smiled and looked at him.
Actually, he asked me on a date.
while blushing a little. Chris bit his lower lip and almost dropped his book.
And you said yes? He is a first year!
she looked at him in confusion; he was definitely overreacting.
– I find
said and he nodded.
Chris didn’t know what was happening, but he suddenly felt a rush of rage; he
didn’t like the fact that she was going on a date with him and he didn’t know
THUESDAY, 2:00 P.M.
– So, how
did it go?

and looking at the tv.
– He is
drinking her cappuccino. Chris looked away and swallowed a curse while William
was asking her about the date. Chris heard almost nothing of what his best
friend was saying, he was so mad and bothered that felt the necessity to stand
up and go in the kitchen. Y/n stopped talking and looked at him in confusion,
she thought he was listening but, apparently, she was wrong. William’s eyes meet
hers and they understood each other, as always.
wait, I want a snack.
and y/n nodded making him understand that he needed to talk with Chris and
figure out what was going on.
wrong with you?
asked looking at him, he almost jumped out of his skin.
– What do

– You said
not even a word, you looked like you weren’t even listening. She’s our best
friend and she seems to like that guy, at least you could pretend you care.
his best friend and he felt like he had stabbed him I the stomach. It was true,
he was not being supportive, he was being an asshole and she was not even
making him feel bad for it.
sorry, you are alright.
and looked away, he couldn’t bear the disappointment in William’s eyes.
you explain me why?
crossing his arms, Chris bit his lower lip and desperately run a hand through
his hair. William was his best friend since always, he was his brother, he
could trust him and he needed to get rid of that secret.
– I think
I am jealous.
and blushed. William opened his mouth and looked at him in shock.
you like her! I knew that, God!
He said and
smiled, Chris was confused.
– Was it
that fucking obvious?!
opening his arms, his best friend bursting out laughing.
– To me,
it was! You two are always flirting, you look at each other like you could
undress the other with one look. I know the both of you, I remember the way you
guys kissed at Jacobs’. Please, all the references and the dirty jokes, not to mention
the amount of time you two spend together alone, if you guys are not
fuckfriends then I am the Queen of England.
explained and Chris almost chocked with his own saliva: William was impossible
to fool, he knew them both too damn well.
– You need
to tell her, mate.
concluded and Chris sighed. He wanted to, really, but he was scared.
– What if
I screw up our friendship?
He asked to
his best friend. William put a hand on his left shoulder and looked at him.
there is this chance, I will be honest. If you tell her and she’s not into you,
then you’ll lose her for a while, but she will come back, she cares about you
too much to let you go. If you don’t tell her, if you don’t take the risk, you’ll
have to watch y/n being with someone else and I think this would totally
said. Chris nodded, his best friend knew how to use the words, he was his
rational part, it had always been like this.
are you two having an affair without including me?
made them both jump out of their skin. She was standing on the kitchen’s door
with her arms crossed and she looked amused.
– I was
telling Chris that, since when he practically finished all the cookies, I’m
going to buy some. Plus, we would never have an affair without involving you.
said; Y/n laughed looking at him while he was grabbing his jacket. Chris opened
his eyes looking at William and he winked to his best friend.
– Y/n, do
you want something?
asked on the door, she frowned while thinking.
said while searching for money in her pockets. William stopped her and gave her
a peck on her cheek, she smiled and hugged him before he left Chris’ house.
– So, you
were saying about Jonas?
sitting on the couch, she shrugged sitting next to him.
– You don’t
have to pretend you care. I know you don’t like Jonas because of Eva’s
situation of the first semester.
and Chris shook his head.
– It’s not
this. I want to know if he makes you happy.
surprising her. Chris was not the sentimental kind of person, it was rare that
he talked about feeling so openly and directly. This was not his style and,
even if she knew he wanted the best for her, that was the first time he spontaneously
said to her.
– Too soon
to say it.
confessed and looked at him, he nodded.
– I just
want you to be happy, you know that.
He said and
she smiled looking at him. He was one of the most important person of her life,
there were no doubts about that.
asked me if we had sex already!
and laughed. Jacob was like this and that thing was supposed to make him laugh,
instead he froze. Just the thought that someone could touch her in the way he
did made him cringe.
– You can’t
have sex with him.
sentence just came out and he regretted in the exact moment he said it.
– What do
you mean? You can have sex with the whole school but I can’t have sex with
someone who’s not you, right?
Her voice was full of rage and disappointment. Of course she was mad, she
thought he was being selfish from the sexual prospective, she couldn’t imagine
he was being jealous.
not what I meant..
He said but
she was already grabbing her jacket. He stood up and sighed.
– You are
such an asshole, Chris. I don’t know what is going on with you, but please, get
over it. I can’t bear your constant depressed attitude of this last two days.
while putting the jacket on and going toward the door. Chris bit his lower lip
and rolled his eyes, screw everything, he was not letting her go.
her and, in the moment when she turned around, he kissed her. She froze for a
second, before realizing he was kissing her and not because they were having
sex. This kiss was totally different from any other happened between them. This
was sweet, patient, this was delicate and Chris was caressing her face while she
was closing her eyes and getting involved. There was no rush, no aggressiveness,
the kiss was taking its own time because it was intense, it was real and they
were just discovering something new. For the first time, she felt something
more than a passion, something more than a physical desire. She was kissing
Christoffer, her best friend, and she was feeling love. She opened her lips and
let his tongue in while hugging him and getting closer to his body. He gave her
a last quick kiss and smiled on her lips.
– I was
not being an asshole, I was just jealous.
confessed and touched her hips. She crossed her hands behind his shoulder and
– I get
and he nodded, his checks turning red.
– So, you

– It seems
and she smiled.
– It seems
that I like you back.
admitted and bit her lower lip. His eyes lighted up while he was looking at
her. A series of emotions crossed his face: doubt, surprise and then the

and he kissed her again. She could sense his smile on her lips and she realized
she hadn’t felt so happy in a long time.
– So, we
have to tell William.
She said and
Chris lifted his eyebrows.
– Uhm.. he
He said and
looked at his best friend. She seemed confused at first, then she connected all
of the dots.
bastard! That’s why you guys spent a lifetime talking in the kitchen and then he

– What are
you going to say to Jonas?
curious and looked at her. She caressed the back of his neck and shrugged.
Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” - John 20:29
Are you willing to believe in Jesus, even though you cannot see Him?
When you choose to believe, it will be reflected in every area of your life. You will begin to grow in your faith. You will be able to look back over the past few years of your life and see the spiritual growth.
This happens because when you accept Jesus as your Savior, the Holy Spirit dwells in you. The Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit, and exists as your guide in grace, truth, and all of the fruits of the Spirit in every moment of your life. From the moments you’re having a joy-filled day to the moments you’re in distress, and every moment in between, what you choose to believe changes your life from the inside out.
Today is the day to live out what you believe. If you believe God is a provider, let it affect everything from your attitude about today to the way you think about the future. If you believe that the light of Jesus has made an Eternal difference in your life, then don’t spend your days wallowing in darkness. If you believe that the Holy Spirit dwells in you, worship in spirit and truth, and don’t let your worries get the best of you.
Jesus is calling. He is calling you to believe. He is calling you believe that He is capable of great and immeasurable things that exceed even your wildest dreams. You may have thought you were onto something, but now that you know Him, He wants to show you something more. You might not be able to understand all of it right now, but by faith, you can choose to stand on His Truth, believing that He loves you and has so much more in store for you.

A very manipulative and cruel tyrant and bully who leads the Heathers clique and her school with an iron first, and enjoys being cruel to her own best friends. Worshipped at Westerburg High and is a mythic bitch
A more passive member that’s slowly boiling over with rage. She is the head of the yearbook committee and is rather bookish. Other than that, she has no discernible personality.
Head cheerleader who pretends to enjoy picking on other students so she doesn’t become the victim of the other Heathers’ cruelty. Clinically depressed but smiles and laughs and for the most part doesn’t let people see how she really feels.
Smart and beautiful. She showed an important, almost survivalist capacity to be mean when she wanted to be. Not afraid to speak her mind, but at the same time just wants to be liked by both popular and unpopular people.
The typical bad boy on the surface: wears dark clothes, quotes poetry, is brooding, and conventionally attractive. However he’s constantly struggling with inner turmoil following his mother’s suicide. Doesn’t like making connections and thinks of himself as some great philosopher despite him actually trying too hard and just grasping at straws with his comparisons
Too trusting for her own good and is often screwed over because of it. She is a hopeless romantic and has been pining over the same guy since kindergarten. Pursues romantic endeavors with courage despite being the victim of bullying and being clinically depressed.
Often written off as just being a huge dick but is sort of doing what he was told he should do as a jock, beating up people and not really knowing why. He cries himself to sleep because a lot of the feelings he’s going through. Is the linebacker of the football team and is questioning his sexuality but insists to himself that he’s straight and pushes his ideas of “heterosexual masculinity” as his personality.
The smartest guy on the football team and is secretly super good at trigonometry and chemistry. He’s the quarterback of the football team and is also highly questioning his sexuality and to be as straight as possible, he mimics the patterns of Ram (talking about his balls, drinking, partying, etc) not even knowing that Ram is mimiking Kurt’s “heterosexual behavior” basically both of them think the other is as straight as they come and does their best to be exactly like the other.
I’ve always been aware of the double standards between how the RuPaul’s Drag Race fandom treats the White queens as opposed to the Black queens.
However, it wasn’t until this current season that I’ve really noticed how blatant and unapologetic the fandom’s racism has gotten. And, as a Black viewer, I just can’t sit here and let this bullshit go unchecked.
The constant discrediting and invalidation of Shea Coulee (even Peppermint to some extent) has gotten out of hand. Do you not realize that Shea has won FOUR (Not one. Not two. Not three. But four.) challenges and has gotten three highs? Now, I thought Sasha was going to win last week, and expressed my slight disappointment, but congratulated Shea in the process. Meanwhile, some of y’all were completely shitting on Shea, totally forgetting (or ignoring) from the fact that she pulled out THREE sickening looks, worthy of the win.
Even Sasha, the sweetest Russian egg on Earth, had to check y’all asses on Twitter.
Want a reminder?
Last week, I thought it was ridiculous. But now, as I am writing this rant at 2 AM, this has already left the “ridiculous” category and went right into the hateful and anti-black category.
Some of you have REALLY tried it tonight. And I knew I had to write about it after I saw a very offensive, disgusting comment today. It went along the lines of: “This is a drag competition … not a ‘who’s the most from Africa’ competition.”
So, you really think that blackness is the ultimate factor for how to win RuPaul’s Drag Race?
Just because Bob won last year?
Sure. Don’t count Raja, Sharon Needles, Chad Michaels, Jinkx Monsoon, Bianca Del Rio, Violet Chachki, and Alaska.
The aforementioned winners won because they earned it. They had the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent needed to snatch the crown. I think C.U.N.T., not black skin, is the ultimate factor you need to have in order to win Drag Race.
Shea Coulee has the C.U.N.T. to win. And y’all know that. That’s why some of you feel so spooked that you feel as though you have to lash out and let your true racist colors come out.
You don’t have to worship Shea. Likewise, you don’t have to think that she is the best contender for the crown (as you have the right to like whomever you want). But do not belittle her hard work and talent just because you don’t want her to be on the level of your White Fave.
Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him alone, and treat parents with the best of kindness. Should one of them, or both, attain old age in your lifetime, do not say “Ugh!” to them (as an indication of complaint or impatience), nor push them away; and always address them in gracious words.
