you can see that's not entirely true

It does not make you a bad person if you only ship one pairing in the entire fandom. 

I personally have written multiple pairings, but my true one is Harry/Eggsy. I know people who thrive on multi-ships, polyamory, one OTP, or none. (which, come on, why do I see only ten kudos on some fantastic gen works on A03??) All of those, to use the tumblr speak, are all valid. 

As a disclaimer, I will never kill off Tilde or rewrite her into some massive bitch, but there’s nothing wrong with having them mutually split up or one of them deciding that the other isn’t the right person for them in the end. They’ve already canonically had a conflict about Eggsy’s job and what it means for their future, and I don’t think it just gets dropped after that, even after they marry. It’s a huge adjustment to being an average civilian to a super spy to a prince. If Eggsy has had no reservations or internal conflict about that, ever, I’m calling bullshit. If Tilde has never worried about their relationship while Eggsy was a spy or even how Eggsy is transitioning into a future ruler of Sweden, I’m calling bullshit, too. 

Will I write Tilde leaving/Eggsy leaving/them mutually breaking up in order for Harry/Eggsy to happen? Yes. But it doesn’t make me a shitty person. 

You can dislike a ship. You can wish it was better written or didn’t happen all together. You can, and please do, use tumblr savior or some other software to never see a certain pairing again. Control your fandom experience. 

HOWEVER, we must be aware of the misogyny and implications when we make or consume art. This happens quite frequently in fandoms, usually with minorities. There are a lot of better posts/academic and news articles that can explain this better, but bottom line: no fridging or demonizing. Shit happens in relationships without having to resort to extremes. 

Relationships are like this. People stay together. People drift apart. People discover that what they want or even what they need isn’t with that person. Even when wedding bells ring and decades of marriage happen, the problems are not over. No relationship is perfect and unproblematic—in real life or in fiction. No person is simply either an Unproblematic Ray of Sunshine and an Utter Garbage Trash Bag. 

Let people write, draw, or consume what they want. It’s free anyway. 

Natsu's and Lucy's Realistic Relationship Post

Okay, so I’ve had this idea in the back of my head for some time now because I couldn’t really decide a good time to talk about it, but you know what?

I really want to talk about this. So here we go.

This is MY edition of the true basis of Nastu’s and Lucy’s relationship and its progression.

Note: This is (what I think) a realistic idea of how the two might actually end up. So there won’t be any exaggerations, it will just be based off of how Mashima has put together their personalities and how I can predict them.

I suppose technically this is a headcannon, but I like to think of it as a theory in the long run, so beware, this will be long.

~~

So we all know how obvious Mashima has made Natsu’s feelings for Lucy. Not even in the romantic sense, anyone can tell that he cares deeply for her.

He didn’t think much of her until she came along at Mt. Hakobe

He thought she was noisy and didn’t even understand why she came along, and then voila

All the sudden this burst of wanting to be with her and her partner just comes out of nowhere.

And from then on, his affection for her only grows larger and more noticeable, and he’s NOT the type of person to shy away from hiding how he truly feels about people

And many more like that ^

He’s always thinking of her, no matter if they’re lounging around in the guild wanting to go off on a mission with her or if they’re entire guild is being destroyed and he’s getting his ass beat, I can promise you-

There’s always that one point where he asks, “Where’s Lucy?“ or ”Happy! Get Lucy somewhere safe!“ or even ”Lucy get back! I’ll handle this!“ 

Because she’s precious to him. He absolutely hates it when she cries,

Over time he’s learned how to comfort her, but there are times when hugging her and soothing her just won’t be enough. And you know what he hates more than her crying?

Her crying when he knows he can’t make it better. The problem can’t be solved in a snap and he hates the idea of Lucy being sad for a long period of time.

So what does he do?

He gets mad.

He cares immensely for her, and it’s not just in the heat of the battle. He likes her for who she is, he teases her and plays with her like some lovesick puppy she always ends up taking care of.

 And whether it seems he doesn’t appreciate it, she still does it anyways

He finds comfort in her, and opposed to many other people, he admires her. HE’S always the one to point out what makes her such an amazing person, whether calling her nice or sweet or even tough and strong, its ALWAYS him.

Which is why I think Natsu knows he loves her.

Like, truly loves her.

Mashima can joke around all he wants about these two, and despite the fact that he’s DELIBERATELY pointed out that Natsu doesn’t exactly show interest in girls, Lucy to him is an entire different situation. He doesn’t rate girls he sees walking down the street like most boys do, and he’s most certainly no lady chaser like Loke or even Grey.

But he has his moments…

*Insert all 59 scenes of NaLu boob groping here*

 Despite that, Lucy’s looks aren’t what made him fall for her. I don’t think he would care if Lucy looked any different, so long as shes still herself

So yes, I am going to say that he loves her. That he fell for her smile and her pretty face and all the cliches, but what he cares about most is that shes sweet. He admires her kindness and sincerity most of all, because coming from some rowdy, rough-handed guild, seeing that just isn’t natural.

He’s been taught that if you show mercy and kindness, you’re automatically deemed weak. Like Lucy. 

But she doesn’t change herself. That’s why Natsu not only admire’s that trait, but he’s fascinated by it. He’s fascinated, he’s baffled, he loves it.

And he’s accepted it. He knows he loves her more than just his best friend and partner, but what many people think happens is that he “blushes at everything” and he “can’t be around her or else she’ll know”.

That’s not Natsu.

I personally think Natsu wouldn’t mind in the least if Lucy knew he loved her. He can act perfectly normal around her and still love her at the same time, because that’s how he acts. He can still break into her apartment and sling his arm around her while at the guild and complement her simply because that’s what he’s always done.

Since Mount Hakobe.

I’ll remind you again, Natsu might like touching Lucy (whether playing in the pool or resting an arm on her shoulder), but I personally think that is all he needs from her. He doesn’t need to slip his hands under her shirt and kiss her and do all that stuff because he just doesn’t feel he need too. He’s stuck in his little puppy-love mindset where wrestling with her and sleeping next to her are all he needs to satisfy himself.

So, you’re probably asking now, “What about Lucy?“ 

(Or “when is this post over” but I’m almost done, promise)

Lucy’s a whole other story. But before we get there, lets follow up on this “headcannon” of mine.

So we’ve established that Natsu clearly knows his feelings for her, so why doesn’t he tell her? Well, in my little idea for the future, he does. 

And I’ll be honest, it’s not the most romantic way to come out to her. (Backing up the REALISTIC standards of Natsu Dragneel.) 

There won’t be roses or chocolate or fireworks or sex afterwords, but he’ll put it bluntly and simply. Like he always does. He won’t try to kiss her or even look for an answer, but he’ll say it just to let her know and shine her his famous grin.

Then it comes to Lucy. Now lets talk about her for a little while, because you know what I think her response would be?

She would deny him.

And no, she wouldn’t ignore him or quit being partners or anything like that, but she wouldn’t return his feelings. And yes, Natsu would be disappointed, but he wouldn’t be depressed.

I will say now, Lucy is probably more stubborn than Natsu on this. I think deep down she knows she loves him more than a best friend, but she utterly refuses to admit it to even herself. She doesn’t like the fact that she may love him because it confuses her to no end. 

Look:

She’s constantly stuck in her fantasy land about her perfect boyfriend. She’s never had one, but she already knows what she wants in her man and his exact mannerisms. So why is she upset she might love Natsu?

She’s looking for a Prince.

She knows what she wants out of her relationship. She wants a mature man, one who doesn’t break in her house and call her fat all the time. She wants to be swept off her feet into a real fairy tale by her knight in shining armor. And who does she fall for instead?

The fire breathing dragon.

So what does she do? She tries to sort it all out. She’s still in a state of denial, but she doesn’t let it ruin what they have. Natsu still acts like Natsu, but now knowing what he truly thinks of her, she can’t help but notice all the signs.

He wouldn’t pressure her into replying to what he said before, and he’s most definitely not angry or upset whatsoever. He doesn’t ask her constantly “Hey! Wanna be boyfriend girlfriend?” or “Hey, can I kiss you?”

Because you know why he’s completely fine with her having no response?

Because she’s smiling.

And I would underline this if I could.

Lucy’s happiness to Natsu means way more to him than his needs to kiss her. As long as she’s happy, he’s happy.He doesn’t feel the need to bring in all this other stuff to her plate, simply because they’re perfect right now, as it is to him. Lucy’s healthy and smiling and shining like a beacon like how she should be and that’s all he needs to be just as happy. He gets his worth from her and so long as he keeps her safe, thats all that matters to him.

And if you thought I meant that Lucy doesn’t love him just as much, you’re wrong. And once again, it’s doesn’t even have to be in the romantic sense. But if you don’t think she loves him even as his best friend, then you’ve been blind this entire show. 

She’s shy and in denial to how she feels, but there are times when she would lowly acknowledge her true feelings for him. And you can see it clearly on her face.

I think it’s times like these when she just knows. She gets that gleam in her eye with that soft look, and never have I seen her like that towards anyone but Natsu. 

I hope you enjoyed this annoyingly long post, and feel free to add any other scenes like this to it. I just wanted to show you all how these two might really be if Mashima were to make them canon.

Feel free to ask questions?

I think ‘Hit the Diamond’ really put into perspective just how HURT Sapphire was about Pearl’s betrayal in ‘Cry for Help’ and how she acted in ‘Keystone Motel’

In all the previous episodes with Sapphire in them, we see her as this very serious, stoic individual with this permeating sense of calm. With episode’s like ‘The Answer, we see her as a bit more talkative and a bit more happy, but she was still very mellow in those regards.

In Keystone Motel, she was almost literally a block of ice. cold, a tad standoffish. Not really expressive in any sense. It wasn’t until she has her little breakdown that she started to come back to her normal self, letting slip some giggles and laughs because of Ruby cheering her up

Now, in Hit the Diamond, she WAS able to calm Ruby down a lot but she ALSO played along with her. She was giggly and happy and was just having so much fun with Ruby that she was actually DETRIMENTAL to their whole plan. They were such goofy flirts together and Sapphire was just an extremely nice and kind person, not cold or stoic in any way.

So that just SHOWS you how HURT she was in that situation with Pearl. The line ‘Can’t you see? I’m completely engulfed with Rage.’ could have been written off as a joke like ‘haha you have no expression tho’ BUT THATS THE POINT. Her having no expression or emotion IS her version of Rage, and Ruby knew that and that’s why she said ‘Well, it doesn’t FEEL like it!’. Because Ruby can SEE that Sapphire isn’t expressing her discomfort so she KNOWS she’s upset, however, Ruby also knows that Sapphire is very emotive too. So Sapphire pretending like she’s NOT feeling anything is what’s driving Ruby up the wall the entire episode because Ruby KNOWS her, and knows that this isn’t like her.

I dunno, I just found it super interesting that we can now see Sapphire as her true self, not this stoic person to Ruby’s passionate one, but to this happy and kind individual that MATCHES Ruby’s passion just as much, but in a different way

Don't you know?

A Jily drabble fic

I’m standing in the hallway. staring. You are far off on the other end, i can tell because you’re laughing, red hair thrown back. I’m incredibly gone. You know why? Because i cant hear it but i know your laugh is beautiful. 

You are sprawled across the grass, limbs sinking into the dirt. I’m sitting next to you, tipsy on firewhiskey and your smile. I look at you, bottle in hand, giggling.  I need, I need, I think to myself. Like a little boy ridiculously looking at a chocolate bar in a candy store. I want to touch the freckles on your back before i realise how much i would rather memorise them instead.

Everywhere I go is haunted now. Because I walk through the halls and I think, here, I’ve loved you here. I lie on the grass next to you and think here, I’ve loved you here.

Thing is i barely even know what love means. But if it means wanting your fingers wrapped around my wrist till the rest of eternity then yeah, I love you. If it means telling you to grab harry and go then yeah, I love you. I love you so much I think one day i might choke on it.

I want to pour you in a glass and drink until I’m full of nothing else but you, sunshine pouring all over the inside of my ribcage.
A flower grows inside my heart every time you smile at me, all bright and wide. I wanna pick it and curl it around your hair.

Stop looking at me like that you tell me. I cant though. Its not possible to look at you and not feel as though you are staring into infinite constellations. You are better than constellations. You are Lily Evans.

Are you alright? you ask me. I nod my head yes. Of course I’m alright. your hair has spilt itself all over my sheets like an unremovable stain. Its the most gorgeous thing i have ever seen. I lean down and kiss your chapped lips and think about the fact that you are better than anything ever will be.

James, I’m not pretty like that you tell me one afternoon on a rainy July day. I laughed. What you said was only half true. You aren’t pretty like that. You’re pretty like you. You’re pretty like when stars explode. You’re pretty like a bomb going off inside my heart. You’re pretty in a way most things cant be. It is insane how you are so breathtaking and not aware of it. It makes my soul do disastrous things like fall for you. 

James, darling you say to me. Don’t you know it kills me every time you say my name like that? Sometimes i think I must’ve died a million times to meet you. If that were true i think it was worth it. All of it.

So here I am. I see the green light thats about to end me. About to end it all. And they say that your entire life flashes before your eyes but that doesn’t happen to me. Only one thing plays in my head over and over again like a broken record. James, darling, can you believe I’m in love with you? Your voice echoes like an unremovable stain inside my head. And all I can think is how I am James Potter and love Lily Evans. Im James Potter and I love Lily Evans.

Surprisingly an Ni-Se/Se-Ni user has and can access memories?? Surprisingly they can be sentimental? Surprisingly they can regret past actions??? Surprisingly external stimuli can remind them of the past?????

I was eavesdropping on some ladies talking yesterday about the resurgence of hand-made stuff and sewing and how it made them feel very womanly. And on one hand I’m nb or whatever and gender roles are twaddle, but on the other… I knit and it’s true, there is a very primal-feeling very feminine satisfaction in seeing all your people wrapped warm and safe in things you made with your own hands.

Btw maybe this is just me but I /really/ don't like the idea that certain gems "dominate" the personality of a fusion. I think each gem contributes in their own way.

thats true i suppose for a stable fusion.  i  see fusion as two minds that come together to  create a  new mind entirely  so it’s like 3 minds in one body  depending on the  constitute  gems, if one of the constitute gems  fails to  maintain synchronization or disagrees with their  partner the fusion can fall apart  similar to stevonnie in beach city drift or garnet in keeping it together evident  by garnet talking to herself and stevonnie literally loosing her cool 

like here you can see steven whose concern for jasper is overwhelming. He looses his cool and smoky starts to fall apart. 

But in some fusions   there are dominating gems, albeit unstable fusions. 

some late night thoughts: you don’t have to like cle.xa, but we should respect that it happened, that clarke loved le.xa. and most importantly that this fact does not make any of her future or past loves any less valid.

clarke can love finn, le.xa and bellamy. just like how you or i can love the stars, the mountains and the ocean. they all have your entire heart, just in different ways, and the strength of your love for one does not diminish the love for the others.

it’s not a competition. it’s love.

Tbh i think the jay part might be true. I can so see ashley going to the sunset marquis for "work" because everyone and their mother knew they were staying there. She was probably hoping to run into them and be in another pap shot - that's totally something she would do. And then jay seeing her and getting angry - I would pay to see jay putting those idiots in their place lmao

YOU KNOW JAY IS A PROTECTIVE MAMA BEAR AND LOUIS IS HER CUB! I cannot even IMAGINE how much she despises that entire family. If we ever saw Jay lose it, that shit would be beautiful, but scary as hell.

I wish I didn’t hate working and I wish that was more socially acceptable. We are supposed to live our entire lives helping someone else make their dreams come true while we are spending all our time not doing that for ourselves. People see this as unmotivated or unambitious but don’t judge me because different things motivate me and I’m ambitious about things other than a dumb career.

Congrats to you if you’ve settled into a job that you love, you can handle going to every day, and that allows you to live your dreams. Help me get on your level?
