yes...i am

In the macro sense of things, I’m overly detached. I think that’s because I realize there isn’t much I can do.
I can’t stop wars.
I can’t save dying kids.
I can’t stop a person being assaulted 5000 miles from here.

In the micro sense of things, I’m overly attached. I think that’s because I realize I can do something if not a lot.
I can feed the homeless man.
I can be kind to the waitress and leave a good tip.
I can help a kid with his studies because his family is involved in other things to do so.

If you walk up to me and say you need my help, I will believe you.
Yes, I am fooled sometimes but at the off chance of them telling the truth I’ll take the risk of being a fool.

I can hope to act locally and help globally.
Everything is intricately connected and every action as well as word counts.

Our world needs saving.

Everyone is smiling except Keith, because he’s got better things to do than smile at you.  

Right! So I made y’all a few icons you never asked for! If anyone wants one with a different flag behind it, feel free to PM me, I’ll fix you up.

Fixed version: And by this, I mean I’ll 100% make this post about pride, and not about my headcanons for the characters :) 

so I’m kind of a sucker for Redemption Equals Death because it’s sad and I’m a sucker for sad. but I also…idk, sometimes I wish it weren’t such an overwhelming trend, not only because All My Faves Wind Up Dead but also because…I want to see more villains actually going through the hard, messy work of redemption, that it can’t just be done and over with, that it’s not as simple as One Good Heroic Act and everything is better. 

I want the awkward and painful and difficult aftermath.

like, what I really want is the villain seeking redemption who is genre savvy enough to go for a redemptive death, figuring that’s their best way out - and who survives, and has to live up to what they meant to be their last act. 

rather than death as the end of a redemptive arc, near-death as the beginning of one.

cute date ideas:

  • lying in a meadow after a picnic 
  • chase each other through sunflower fields
  • look at the stars on top of a roof
  • sing songs on the radio at night
  • pick flowers and put it in their hair
  • go to the ocean and feel the tides

Me: MY BABYS FIT LIKE A DAY DREAM WALKING WITH HIS HEAD DOWN I’M THE ONE HE’S WALKING TOOOOOO SO CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT YEAH CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT TO MY BABY’S FLY LIKE A JET STREAM HIGH ABOVE THE WHOLE SCENE LOVES ME LIKE I’M BRAND NEW

Someone: aren’t you single?

Me: ……………….yes
