you all have a choice

Sadness and New Adventures (Elina’s post on the trade)

Yesterday didn’t really start the way we thought, we woke up and found out that we got traded to Arizona, just like that, It came as a shock, even tho we knew that the Blackhawks had some issues with the salary cap we didn’t think that we needed to worry, but oh we where wrong! For ten years Chicago has been our home, thats 1/3d of our lives! In ten years you build a whole life, all the friends you made through the years, all contacts you’ve gotten, the city we know so well, you know how the organisation works and where to go and all the guys on the team that we pretty much been growing up with thats our family there, you now have to leave it all, just like that and you don’t have a choice or a voice to do anything about it.

I was incredibly sad all day yesterday and it was hard to keep the tears away but now when most of the shock has simmered a little, Im just trying to think positive. I am a big believer that everything happens for a reason and I guess we just have to see this as a new chapter in our lives and as an adventure even tho I still have a knot in my stomach from everything thats been going on. But I just have to say one thing and that is THANK YOU everyone who’s been texting and calling us and all the messages and kind words and LOVE that we have gotten from family friends and fans, we appreciate it more then you think and you all are making everything feel a little bit better, it really warms our hearts! Me and Nik is now going to sit down and try to figure our how to plan out our nearest future with all the changes! Hope you all have a good night! lots of love to all of you!

Make Me Choose

Todoroki Shouto or Bakugou Katsuki asked by anon ❀

A GUIDE FOR YOUNG LADIES ENTERING THE SERVICE OF THE FAIRIES, by Rosamund Hodge


I.

This is the lie they will use to break you: no one else has ever loved this way before.


II.

Choose wisely which court you serve. Light or Dark, Summer or Winter, Seelie or Unseelie: they have many names, but the pith of the choice is this: a poisoned flower or a knife in the dark?

(The difference is less and more than you might think.)

Of course, this is only if you go to them for the granting of a wish: to save your father, sister, lover, dearest friend. If you go to get someone back from them, or—most foolish of all—because you fell in love with one of them, you will have no choice at all. You must go to the ones that chose you.


III.

Be kind to the creature that guards your door. Do not mock its broken, bleeding face.

It will never help you in return. But I assure you, someday you will be glad to know that you were kind to something once.


IV.

Do not be surprised how many other mortal girls are there within the halls. The world is full of wishing and of wanting, and the fairies love to play with human hearts.

You will meet all kinds: the terrified ones, who used all their courage just getting there. The hopeful ones, who think that love or cleverness is enough to get them home. The angry ones, who see only one way out. The cold ones, who are already half-fairy.

I would tell you, Do not try to make friends with any of them, but you will anyway.


V.

Sooner or later (if you serve well, if you do not open the forbidden door and let the monster eat you), they will tell you about the game.

Summer battles Winter, Light battles Dark. This is the law of the world. And on the chessboard of the fairies, White battles Black.

In the glory of this battle, the pieces that are brave and strong may win their heart’s desire.


VI.

You already have forgotten how the mortal sun felt upon your face. You already know the bargain that brought you here was a lie.

If you came to save your sick mother, you fear she is dead already. If you came to free your captive sister, your fear she will be sent to Hell for the next tithe. If you came for love of an elf-knight, you are broken with wanting him, and yet he does not seem to know you.

Say yes.

10 Ways You Can Support Black Women

1. Stop slandering our natural features. Stop with the dark skin jokes. Stop with the natural hair jokes. Stop dehumanizing black women for our features. Black women–especially young black girls–internalize these “jokes” and grow to sincerely hate their blackness. Cut it out.

2. Respect our choices. All of them. You don’t have to like it but you need to respect it. If we choose to wear our natural hair, respect it. If we choose to wear weave, respect it. Stop chastising us for the choices we make for ourselves. Stop policing how we choose to live our lives. Let us be great. Gahdamn.

3. Stop with the respectability politics. You can’t say you love black women and then pick and choose which black women you’ll respect based on your standards. You still give a black woman respect regardless of how she chooses to live her life. You respect all black women because we are human just like you, not just the ones who wear natural hair, listen to erykah badu and shit.

4. No means no. If you approach a black woman and she says she’s not interested, oh my fucking god, my nigga, just leave her alone. Move on. Let it go. Please do not persist. Take the rejection gracefully. Don’t call her out name, don’t follow her, don’t assault her. Let her be. She doesn’t owe you an explanation. Her “no” is enough and you will deal my friend. 

5. LISTEN. Bruh, when black women are telling you something you’re doing is harming them, can you put your ego aside and just L I S T E N. Why is that your first reaction is to get defensive? If you love black women like you say you do, wouldn’t you want to know when you’re doing something harmful to them? Stop getting defensive every time a black woman calls out your misogynoir. Stop brushing that off as “bashing black men.” Stop calling black women “shea butter bitches” for calling out how you harm black women. Black women are just asking for empathy at the end of the day. That’s the least you can do.

6. Stop slut-shaming. Stop shaming black women for their sexuality. Stop calling black women “thots” and all kinds of hoes because her sex life is something YOU disagree with or because she presents herself in a way that conflicts with YOUR standards. Someone’s sexuality has nothing to do with you and you don’t have the right to police what a woman does with her body. Stop reducing a black woman’s worth because you don’t like what she does with HER body.

7. Understand that our identity intersects. Stop telling black women they have to “pick a side.” Black women aren’t black men or white women’s “side kicks.” We are our own people with our own unique struggle that, yes, may have similarities to BM’s and WW’s struggles, but is not identical to theirs. We are black and we are women. You can’t be an ally to black women and not be intersectional when our existence is the epitome of intersectionality. Black women don’t just experience racial violence, we experience gender violence as well. Stop insisting that we have to divide our identity down the middle to suit you.

8. Say something when you see black women being attacked. When you see black women being harassed online and offline, do something. Ya’ll gotta start holding each other accountable. Stop @-ing me telling me how terrible it is that I’m being attacked. @ ole dude who’s attacking me. Tell them to stop. Have my back. Intervene in the best possible way you can. Stop allowing the violence against black women to persist right in front of your eyes.

9. Please kill the “strong black woman” narrative. Placing this title on us constantly, denies us humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be vulnerable like everyone else. We’re constantly told be strong or we’re written off as only angry and bitter. We’re told how we’re suppose to feel and how to respond to violence against us. Black women are humans. We laugh, we cry, we smile. We can’t be your idea of “strong” all the time.

10. Show up for black women. Black women consistently show up for everyone else but when it comes time for us, hardly anyone is there to be found. Police brutality doesn’t just happen to black men. Recognize it. Know the names of the many black female victims of state violence. Know their stories. Share their stories. Fight for them like you fight for Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and Sean Bell. Fight for black women like black women fight for you. Organize and show up for black women. Stop leaving us hanging. Stop expecting our support and giving us little to none in return.

Summary: Jung Hoseok was once the sweetheart of the school, the dance captain whom every girl, including you, can’t help but fall head over heels for. But like the force of the ever-glowing sun, everything that rises must also set. A year of inactivity later and he’s now the school’s resident bad boy. You’re a firm believer of allowing the past be the past, and yet you can’t help but wonder where the risen sun has gone into hiding—because perhaps its shadows have out-shined its own radiance.

It’s pretty normal to get some habits from your folks, but I couldn’t help but think Shou would be worried about it.
Shou, buddy, pal. Yain’t your dad and nobody thinks you are.

Hey everyone, what’s your ideal version of yourself?

Mine’s me tanned and freckled, obviously buff in the arms, with better teeth that go very well with my big buff smile. I have an intimidating androgynous haircut and a moderate 8 pack. I’ve got some kind of upper arm tattoo, and my nose is pierced again. I own a variety of axes and machetes for legitimate outdoor reasons, I understand how tools work, and people are constantly surprised by how effortlessly handy I am around the house. I own a cat who likes to ride around on my shoulders, and a dog who is a good boy, the best boy, and sometimes the cat rises on him too. I casually handle other people’s crisis not by solving them but by helping in some seemingly effortless yet actually very thought out way to get that gets them out of the worst of their problem and then they take care of the rest on their own, and then they become the friends I call up to help someone else with a crisis. I go to bed at a reasonable hour and easily wake up before dawn. Children like me, and their parents wish I’d stop showing them how to use all my cool axes.

I know there’s this discourse™ going on after chapter 136 but where’s the “I’m deeply enjoying the deeply layered conflict and that there’s no "right” or “wrong” sides because the situation is delicate and complicated and there’s a lot at risk so its all a grey area and all parties have a point, but at the same time I’m utterly terrified of the outcome of all of this" corner?? I want to hide there

My sincere advise…

Feel the excruciating pain. Shout it out from the top of your lungs. Cry your heart out until your eyes hurt. Have time for your unending flashbacks. Let it be. Don’t suppressed it. Let your emotions burn your whole system. Let your mind ignites it more. Let your feelings burn to ashes. Endure it until it makes you numb. Until you have no choice but to let it all flow. You need time to feel this. Reminisce everything until your head aches. Drown yourself of tears until you fall asleep. Do it for yourself because you need it. Do it as you wanted to, do it until you get tired and you have no choice but to breathe from that suffocating place you have been.

Your heart have been tortured numerous times that it kills you figuratively.

You deserve more than that.

Your life doesn’t depend on that someone. You have your family and your friends. You are loved. You’re precious.

You’re a lovely living creature. Too lovely that, that someone can’t handle you. It’s not your fault. It’s not that someone’s fault either. It’s the universe choice.

Because everything happens for a reason, we may know it know but soon we will. It’s either to save us from someone who’s not good for us or better than that. Let’s be thankful of this pain, it makes us feel alive. It makes us who we are in the near future.

Those negative emotions? Kill that too. Burn it with your whole system for you to be able to start new.

Keeping grudge is no good. Bitterness won’t take you somewhere. Regrets won’t take back time. Despair and loneliness won’t change anything. Don’t depressed yourself on something that had happened. Instead, be thankful and let it be the reason for the better version of you.

After burning all those emotions, make sure that there’s no debris left. Forgive even that someone is not sorry. Not because that someone needs it but because it will help you feel at ease. Have peace for yourself. Don’t let it consume you but don’t forget the lesson you’ve learned from it.

Most especially, take time for yourself. No one is pressuring you to move on that fast and you don’t have to pretend that you are. Time won’t heal scars but it will help you realize the significant things in life.

Don’t be hard for yourself.

Fighting!
