you can touch this

African Wonder Woman


I saw these kids, 2 sisters, having a play fight. While striking their favorite Power Ranger poses, one of them declared:

“You can’t touch me! I have super powers!!”

“What super powers?” Asked the other.

“I’m Wonder Woman!!

Unfazed, the other replied:

"Well…I’m an AFRICAN Wonder Woman so you can’t beat me!”

I was Floored. Never in my life had I seen such a powerful assertion, spoken so matter of factly, from a child no less. To see such pride taken in her people, to see African-ness wielded like a weapon superior to any Superman, Batman or Wonderwoman cemented within me our responsibility to teach our children a profound love and reverence for our culture, for African-ness. What also resonated with me was this child’s understanding that this reverence for our culture serves as a power source to strengthen us and is key in our fight for liberation. She understood that African-ness is something to be revered as well as weaponized and used to fuel out struggle. She understood that African-ness is a super power and she is our African Wonderwoman. Kudos to their parents because these babies are a shining example of a conscious subversion of the white supremacist ideals our children are bombarded with the moment they enter the world. This is what we need to foster in our children, an unshakeable pride in their skin. It starts in the household. Ofcourse, before we can nurture it in our children, we have to nurture it in ourselves. African-ess is a grounding, self-affirming energy to imbue within our selves and a weapon to wield against our oppressors. Its a reminder of our African, radical tradition of struggle and perseverance. It’s an evocation of the enduring strength of our ancestors, an inextinguishable spirit that burns within us today. We all have this superpower; we just need to activate it.

Boruto Manga Chapter 10!!!

YEET!!!!! 

Look at these fine ass dads ;) 

How about no. 

Nothing ever gets past Sasuke’s eyes

DON’T TOUCH MY SON!!!!

You wild, girl. But forreal though, can you not.

They give me life!!!!!

She’s so adorable!!!

Let’s be honest here, who in this series is an actual “Ordinary Person?” 

FINALLY, THE REHASH IS OVER!!!!

Once, I was helping this guy with his chemistry homework and when he finally submitted the answer and the computer told him it was correct, we were both like, ‘yay!’, he said ‘thank you’, I said ‘no problem’, and sat back down in my seat. Then, he turns to me, his expression absolutely serious, and he says, “I appreciate you.” and I do this double take like “that wasnt a joke, was it?” And it was just a little jarring because of 1) he was actually serious and 2) how deeply I was moved by it. Like, it was just three words, completely of the blue, but it made me so…well, appreciated? And happy? And after my initial shock, I reply with another thank you and a “dang, you don’t hear that a lot”. And, working on his next hw problem, he’s just like, “Yeah, I try to say it as much as I can. Otherwise, how are people supposed to know?” and that was just the most casual, wonderful gesture of kindness that I’ve experienced.  

I really really can’t sleep cos i have all this scenarios in my head now and i think i have to write it down so I thought about the spoilers Robert causing trouble idk if it meant trouble for Aaron but imagine Robert visiting Aaron and well obviously they can’t hug or touch each other, they talk and then one of the guards says visiting time is over everyone gets up except Robert people already leave but Roberts not moving an inch he just sits there and stares at Aaron then the guard says it again but Roberts still not moving and Aaron’s all like Robert please you have to go, please but Robert is frozen in his chair and whispers I can’t leave you, I can’t and Aaron touches his arm telling him that it’s gonna be ok and that he had to leave otherwise he would cause trouble then Robert snaps back to himself and gets up looking one last time at Aaron and says I can’t I can’t leave you but Aaron smiles yes you can and you can come back ok?! Then both leave and Roberts sitting in his car after wards crying gripping the steering wheel so tight and whispering to himself again and again I can’t leave you. Aaron is sitting in his cell staring at the wall with teary eyes shaking hands scratching at “the scar” on his arm that healed months ago but will always remind him about what Robert means to him, trying to cope somehow whispering to himself again and again i can’t leave you either

May 3rd

If you can’t find me on May 3rd, or get in touch with me, or anything like that, don’t be surprised or concerned. Chances are I will be freaking out due to:

  1. Moriel touching (e.g. holding hands or heads leaning on shoulders or gentle healing all count)
  2. Moriel kissing
  3. Moriel sex
  4. Nothing bad related to moriel though, that won’t happen

I think I can safely say this applies to @my-name-is-fireheart as well. We will just… see you when we see you.

Edit: and also @illyriantremors, just don’t talk to us, ok? We will come to you when we are ready.

The Chocobros as serial killers 😮??? And their reaction to their s/o who still loves and accepts them when she finds out about their killings??

Noctis:

  • Nobody expects the prince/king…
  • But since he’s a monarch, he can’t be touched.
  • So when you found out and accepted it, he was shocked when you hugged him and told him that you’re okay with it.

Prompto:

  • People kinda expected it, but also not.
  • Mainly because of where he’s from.
  • So when you told him it’s okay, he didn’t believe you and yelled at you to leave. But you didn’t and he knew.

Gladio:

  • People expected it from him.
  • But given his status… He can’t be touched like Noctis.
  • And he expected you to run away when he told you, but he was relieved when you said it was fine.

Ignis:

  • Like Gladio, people expected him to be a killer.
  • And also like Gladio and Noctis, he can’t be touched.
  • He was so confused when you told him that you’re fine with it, but he just held you tightly and thanked you.
You’ve been scared of love, and what it did to you…
you don’t have to run, I know what you’ve been through.
Just a simple touch and it can set you free… we don’t have to rush when you’re alone with me.
—  The Weeknd

I love you all so much. 
I wish I could be in your arms.
I wish I could be with you.
I wish I could feel your touch.
I can feel your love.
I can feel your presence.
I love you perhaps too much.

Goodnight.

Honestly, I still haven't read the last chapter of MOC because of how much I know you can hurt me with it (no I am not scarred by previous fanfic authors... And not I am not in denial...)

*SPOILERS*

if you hang on for 1-2 more chapters, then you’ll be able to read through the most intense angst bit and get some reconciliation. I’m personally not a fan of fanfic where the leads are kept apart during chapters with 2 separate plot lines as I show up pretty much just for main ship interaction. You can expect, even when separate, Hollstein to be in touch with each other shortly. 

But yeah, chapter 13 was a little mean of me ;)

  • 707: [screams]
  • Yoosung: … What was that?
  • 707: I just thought about my anxieties and it’s like my mind hand touched a hot memory stove.
