you don't need to be fixed to be better

You are in control of the situation. Breathe. Don’t cry. Things will be okay. You can do this, you can fix whatever you’re worried about, you can pay that bill, you can talk to your significant other and communicate, you can get over them, you can do better in school, you can manage your time, and you will be able to do what is it you need to. Take your time. Think.

I’ll be waiting for you when you’re ready to love me again,
I’ll put my hands up,
I’ll do everything different,
I’ll be better to you.

On July second, Bitty stood on his tiptoes, eyeing the arriving passengers for any sign of Kent. The flight was on time, according to the arrivals board. He hadn’t gotten a text message from Kent yet, but they had to have landed. Fidgeting with his phone, Bitty looked up at the boards again. Maybe he could find Kent by the baggage claim?

He’d managed to convince his parents – mostly his Mama – that it would be fine for him to go pick Kent up by himself. It wasn’t an awful drive from the Atlanta airport back to Madison, and, in all honesty, Bitty wanted Kent all to himself. He wanted to hold hands on the drive back from the airport, to kiss Kent when he saw him. He wanted to make sure Kent wasn’t freaking out too much about meeting his parents. Bitty checked the boards again, looking for baggage claim information.

i guess i'm doing one of these
  • aries: sometimes you forget about yourself. don't keep people around who make you feel small. your peace at heart is a gift that should not be squandered on assholes.
  • taurus: don't fuck with the shit that ain't your problem. nobody has that kind of time.
  • gemini: people shame your sharp turns but you can use that magic to fix the bad things.
  • cancer: do not become a lantern. do not blacken your eyes with candle smoke out of fondness.
  • leo: everyone's afraid of themselves sometimes and it's better to know it when you are.
  • virgo: you aren't a failsafe. you are the genes in the tree that tell it how its branches grow.
  • libra: work quietly and it will stand forever.
  • scorpio: ditch the fuckboy. i don't care if the sex is good. find someone decent.
  • sagittarius: your magic is exactly what you think it is. it does, incidentally, mean you need to control yourself.
  • capricorn: you are neither a tool nor a weapon nor a pillar. you are a squishy meat animal and you need to relax.
  • aquarius: distance isn't the same thing as healing.
  • pisces: by all means live a curated life, but remember to get your feet muddy

anonymous asked:

what makes you dslike vrisrezi? i know you don't like vriska, but aside from that what do you think makes it unappealing. i need your opinion.. for science

1. Vri///ska is an abuser

2. She turned Tere///zi into a fucking DOORMAT. Would act 5 Te//rezi have accepted “shut up and agree with me in front of other people because we’re dating and you’ll ruin my image”? No she would not have! 

3. Ter//ezi entered the relationship because she believes she can “fix” Vri//ska, keep her in line, MAKE her be a better person. But what happens in fixer-upper relationships is that the person who does not want to be fixed only ever hurts the one expending massive amounts of emotional labor. Vri//ska is, without any shadow of a doubt, using Te//rezi’s affection for her and exploiting it for her own purposes

4. Vri//ska is a liar who is incapable of forming actual emotional attachments because she believes herself to be in a league of her own. She looks down on and regularly insults Tere//zi all through the comic- just not as BADLY as she insults other people we see her interact with (Tavros, Jake). She knows this, and uses the fact that she’s “not that bad” to Tere//zi to make Ter//ezi THINK she’s formed an emotional attachment to her, when really Tere//zi is just the most interesting/entertaining/useful to her. Vri//ska’s “affection” for Te//rezi is grounded in how interesting and useful Tere//zi is, plus a misplaced sense of ownership (”She’s MY friend/moirail/whatever”). This possessiveness and interest is mistaken as a genuine emotional connection, which Vri//ska, again, is incapable of making because she does not actually open up to Ter//ezi, or anyone at all really.

5. Ter//ezi has gone through SO much shit. She’s been treated like an object to be won by Dave//Rezi and Kar//Ezi shippers, and to a lesser extent by Karkat and Dave themselves. Dave I feel would’ve been a lot less of an asshole if Kar/kat hadn’t been setting the mood, and Ka/rkat, as much as I love him, did a BIG fuckup in regards to Tere//zi and how he treated her. She got literally abused by Possessed!Gamzee. That led to an estrangement from her friend group and really Tere//zi’s life during/after the Game just sucked ass, and her romantic life sucked ass, but more than that Ter//ezi became DEPENDENT on her romantic life as a way of identifying and defining herself. This is not any fault of Ter//ezi’s, as most adolescents do this to a certain extent, but in Tere//zi’s case her defining herself by her relationships is much more severe and worrisome than in the cases of people who grow out of it. To act like Vrisk//a- VRI//SKA- is endgame for Ter//ezi? The GOOD thing to happen to Ter//ezi after all that shit she got shoved through? No. She didn’t need “him” (Dave, Kark/at, or Gam/zee), true, but she sure as hell didn’t need Vris//ka either. Let Ter//ezi be happy OUTSIDE of her romantic relationships, and find worth in her own damn self instead of the people she affiliates romantically with.

6. Vris//ka literally tried to kill her. She only succeeded in blinding her, but pupae who go out in the Alternian sun rarely make it back inside alive. It speaks of Tere//zi’s tenacity that she DIDN’T die. And okay, say I’m overreacting, say Vris///Rezi is a perfectly viable ship because oh no, Haro, Vri//ska wasn’t trying to KILL Tere//zi, she was only trying to BLIND her! Clearly this is the PERFECT foundation for a healthy romantic relationship!

7. This Vri//ska is an Abuser who Never got taught a lesson. She got a slap on the wrist (or a punch in the face, as it may be) and a “Don’t do it again.” Yeah hi, wanna know how bullies react to a slap on the wrist and a don’t do it again? They bully more secretively, and find ways to make sure other people don’t notice. Wanna know how abusers, who have gotten away with fucking everything by that point, react to a punch in the face and a don’t do it again? They get more crafty with their manipulation, and abuse, and hide it from others until they can lock a living person in a fridge, in plain sight, and only one person half-questions them about it because hey! Vri//ska is in charge and knows what she’s doing and no one wants to argue with her because she has cemented her position in Control of everyone around her, especially her girlfriend.

8. Ter//ezi going back to the black hole does not strike me as the quest of someone going after the person she loves. It reads as someone suffering from severe stockholm syndrome clawing desperately for the person who hurt her because that person led her to believe that she was worthless without her, that Te//rezi has no identity or purpose outside of Vri//ska- which acts as a neat little failsafe for Vris//ka doesn’t it? Something happen? Ter//ezi will come bail her out! Ter//ezi is her perfect little lapdog, shutting up and sitting down whenever she tells her to with just a few wheedling words and going into a BLACK HOLE looking for her because if Vri//ska can’t be alive well then she’ll take down everyone with her

9. Seriously Tere//zi is So Fucked Up after three years with Vris//ka it was physically painful to read that dialogue between the two of them :(

anonymous asked:

I don't really get that "flashback from season one" like when was there really time to fit anything in that we didn't see? The only thing I could think it would be was when Alec stayed over the night after Magnus healed Luke? ... I also kinda loved all the moments in S1 as they were and don't really want them touching them. Fix your problems in the current storylines instead of going back and fucking around with things that were fine plz...

My point exactly, Anon. I think the only reason where a flashback would actually make sense is the “morning after” when Alec stayed over in 1x06 OR the scene in 1x13 where we were all wondering what the hell they were doing when “let’s go check the perimeter” at Camille’s. Everything else was pretty much perfect in season 1 and as you stated, I honestly don’t get why they feel the need to do flashbacks for season 1 when they better should do flashbacks of 2a and fix their shit because they clearly messed this up way more than season 1 wtf.

Also, imagine if the “morning after” will be really Alec just waking up in Magnus’ bed or his couch which might be nice but that’s is not what we meant and/or looking for when talking about casual intimacy now that they are in love. Like…. I dunno…. I am already so tired of this and Todd continuing to hype up shit. Siiiigh.

anonymous asked:

I saw the resent post about Obi Wan and I need to ask since I'm a SW fan, I know you said you don't like power unbalance pairings, but what about ObiAni? (after Ani stops being a padawan of course and in an AU were he's not with Padme, because I don't like cheating, some will read it but not me) and even better what about ObiAniDala (the best of both worlds to me)? The later being a balanced romantic relationship between the 3 of them, not just Obi and Padmewith Anakin and them just friends.

ObiAniDala is probably my biggest SW OT3 - they have such fix-it potential, and I adore the dynamics of Obi-Wan and Padme giving Anakin a hard time but also making him better? And then Padme and Anakin giving Obi-Wan headaches because recklessness and Force Padme I thought you were thE SENSIBLE ONE STOP THAT. And then, of course, all three of them saving the universe through the sheer power of badassness. 

Hidden Figures/Snowpiercer

(Snowpiercer spoilers)

Title: I Brought You Here/Sit in the Back/Reinventing the Wheel

Set on the Snowpiercer in the arctic apocalypse. Curtis (Chris Evans) and his gang of tail-enders are living a shit life after years in the back of the train.

Part 1:

Minister Mason (Tilda Swinton) comes to feed the tail-end passengers their protein bars and to take some talent from the back. The Woman in Yellow brings all the children up front, and measures them. She takes Tanya’s older son, Leo (not without resistance). Tanya screams and cradles her infant son, Timmy.

Then Mason asks for a mathematician.

Katharine (Taraji P Henson) raises her hand. She’s going to get Leo back.

Katharine is brought to an office car a few cars ahead. She passes the prison car, the protein bar car, and the water car–where she sees her old friend Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae), who was taken by Mason several months before. They can only exchange a few words before they have to part.

Katharine is brought to a car with several offices, and sat down across from two men in clean white shirts and black ties. They call Wilford.

“I suppose you’re wondering why I brought you here,” says Wilford over the phone, “I understand you’re a mathematician, Katharine. You’re going to help me plan the next tail-section rebellion, which will ultimately fail and cause 74% of the tail-section passengers to die.”

Katharine thinks, I sent a man to the moon. Rocket science is not necessarily the same as statistics but I can be one hundred percent sure that I will kill Wilford.

“Okay,” she says.

  • sasuke: what i'm after... is revolution
  • naruto: well have you planned out what to do after revolution
  • sasuke: what
  • sakura: yeah, after all, it'd be reckless to believe that just knocking down the existing structures would fix everything
  • sasuke: what
  • kakashi: that's right. the economic/political structures through the various villages right now are pretty hard-wired, and to change them for the better, certainly, the first step is doing away with the old, but if you don't have any steps afterwards, you're likely looking at the same old kind of powers rising up and taking control.
  • sasuke: what
  • naruto: so if we're going to go ahead with this revolution we also need to make sure that, beyond just killing the five kages, we tear down other capitalist structures underneath their reign and replace them with a system that uses resources and abilities - of which we seem to have almost no limit to, considering our own sizable skill with jutsus that allows us to move mountains themselves, our generate massive amounts of electrical power, for just a few examples - and put them to work making sure everyone is fed, sheltered, and has what they need.
  • sasuke: what
  • sakura: which isn't to say we can just stop there. there are other oppressive structures at work, not limited to just capital and how it is used and who it is put in the hands of, but multiple axes of power in general, as brought on by how history has been structured and the narratives given to us by both those in power and society as a whole, and working to remove those should also be part of our goal.
  • sasuke: what
  • kakashi: correct. now, if you'll look at this scroll here, i've started writing some theories on how, after revolution, we can use our jutsus, both as individuals and as a collective, to keep food production intact and distribute it to absolutely everyone

@israelarcade that’s definitely something that irked me lol. ‘we chose jaal because x y z’–we don’t need an explanation why jaal 'fits’ as canon bi better, because there’s no reason for bisexuality? it is or it isn’t there’s no report due on why

but you know sure, okay bioware, go ahead and explain that instead of 1) why he wasn’t bi to begin with, 2) why you created virtually zero content for bi and gay men in the first place, and 3) why you’re (as of now) not talking about fixing the content in romances you already screwed up

  • Ophelia: I wish I could fix you. I wish I could take away your pain and reverse everything that happened to you. But I can't. But I can tell you that I'm scared. And I just want you to be better. But I can't be the one that heals you, okay. And for that, I'm sorry.
  • Jules: Yeah well, you wanna fix me? That's so sweet. Poor little rich girl runs to my aid to fix me. I don't need you, Ophelia. I never did. You invaded my life like a disease and you make mistake after mistake, and you want to know why? Take a guess. 'Cause you told me that first night in Beans, remember? Because you are a mistake.
  • Ophelia: You wanna be angry and alone? Fine. But I'm not gonna let you ruin my fun.
advice for the signs based on people i know
  • aries: when under heavy fire, deflecting the bullets into allies isn't always the best idea.
  • taurus: not all your problems can be laughed off or bottled up. the smile is bound to crack, and the jar is bound to overflow. why are you so scared to open up?
  • gemini: don't play games with people. stop sending so many hints and start telling people what you really want.
  • cancer: be more daring. stand up for yourself. try new things. don't be afraid to go after what you really want.
  • leo: at times you can just be a porcupine looking for a hug. learn to let people go if they don't have enough padding, and find people who are more suited to the job.
  • virgo: not everything is a puzzle. even if it were, figuring yourself out is a better place to start than everything else.
  • libra: what you're looking for isn't always far away. take a closer look at what's around you and you might be surprised by the chances that are already laying at your feet.
  • scorpio: nothing is permanent. when you're caught in a storm with no turning back, adjust your rain boots, zip up your coat, and just push forward.
  • sagittarius: your problems will not fix themselves. don't complain about how they aren't getting better if you refuse to work on them yourself.
  • capricorn: find the balance. don't throw yourself into only one thing at a time and neglect all the other things around you during it. sometimes you need to take breaks.
  • aquarius: numbness can't kill, but when you can't feel a severed arm, it can be a problem. start thinking about your feelings, and start thinking about the feelings of others around you. keep the good intentions, ditch the blindfold.
  • pisces: coping mechanisms can kill. stop running away from everything that troubles you. being a hypocrite hurts others more than it does yourself. take a deep breath. some things take time.
When the signs look in a mirror
  • Aries: if I were single I'd date u
  • Taurus: Omg who is that adorable person looking at meeee... Oh wait it's me *blushes
  • Gemini: is it strange that there is one of me but two of u
  • Cancer: my face brings all the boys to the yard and their like... *continues singing song
  • Leo: hot damn
  • Virgo: when did I get hot
  • Libra: *fixing makeup* flawless as usual
  • Scorpio: my beautiful face hides the dagger I'm about to stab you with... Perfect

  • Capricorn: by my mathematical equation... Who am I kidding u don't need math to see that I'm hot
  • Aquarius: I mean of course I look good but I would look better as an alien... Just saying
  • Pisces: *trying to lick icing off of nose
Which Jojos Should You Fight
  • Jonathan: fighting jonathan could be pretty fun but you could also end up just feeling really guilty that you fought someone so gentlemanly and kind. he would probably kick your ass and then personally carry you to the hospital and sit by your side until you're fully treated and like, spoonfeed you your meals. if you're ready to accept this responsibility then you can fight jonathan joestar
  • Joseph: please try to kick joseph joestar's ass. you won't be able to do it because he's going to pull some kind of ridiculous clairvoyancy trick and cover you with grenades when you aren't looking but in the slim chance you could ever pull a fast one on joseph joestar, he deserves it, so badly
  • Jotaro: jotaro will just develop a new stand power that's yours but better. don't even bother
  • Josuke: josuke probably doesnt WANT to fight you but if you really push it or insult their hair or their friends, you will be broken and then fixed in an entirely new and fucked up way
  • Giorno: good fucking luck
  • Jolyne: you can't surprise jolyne with a fight. jolyne's the kind of person to set herself on fire to win a fight, so you need to gradually introduce the idea to her, make sure she knows this is only a friendly sort of spar, so she doesnt completely destroy you or destroy herself trying
  • Johnny: dont fight johnny. what the hell
  • Jo2uke: don't fight jo2uke because you'll be confused the entire time, also soft and wet is kind of freaky looking and i don't really want to wish fighting that on anyone

rosypumpkinstudios  asked:

ok so for the TV show thing: Sonic boom, bc it needs some work

I have to say that I have NOT seen it recently, so this is only going off what I remember. If they’ve fixed this stuff, great!

1. Amy. Give her a consistent personality, and make it a nice one, not ‘token girl who is better than everyone but also kinda a bitch.’ I am saying this as someone who loves Amy in pretty much all her other appearances. (I will admit the voice acting for her is waaaaay better though, so credit where credit is due.)

2. Stop the memes. It probably isn’t funny to the kids watching who don’t get them, and it’s kind of embarrassing to everyone else. It’s not gonna age well at all. (Apparently they also mentioned shipping smut???? There is a line and you jumped it.)

3. Make Knuckles more than a moron????? (Although this one goes out to the games too, so it’s just… Knuckle’s character in general.)

4. Eggman is primarily a bad guy, guys. Although I do sort of like him in the show, I can’t remember a single truly evil thing he’s done.

5. Make them like each other, holy cow they’re FRIENDS. Sure, friends bicker, but at the end of the day they care about each other. These guys felt like they’ve just fallen together by chance and haven’t really bonded yet. Sonic has a deeper connection with Eggman than any of his friends.

He pulls Barry to the side once everyone is gone. He doesn’t like how they were towards him but he can’t fault them. He ruined so many lives and the reaction was real, it was correct. It was truth. But as the dutiful boyfriend (secret at that) he had to make him feel better. He was going to tell him what he did was a mistake but everyone makes them. Barry just more so than most people.

Barry’s pressed to his side as they sat back against the van. Oliver’s hands are wrapped in his. No one gets to see Oliver this way. No one except Barry. They were supposed to be at Star Labs, something Barry wanted to see before finishing this but right now, he needs Oliver. He’s not crying but there are tiny sobs escaping every so often. Broken but still. It crushed Oliver.

“I thought I was doing—” He turns his head in Oliver’s shoulder. “I don’t know what but I ruined so much and I hate myself for it. Cisco hates me. My best friend hates me. Digg, his daughter! And Caitlin… look what I did to her. How can you even be near me? I must have changed something with you.”

“If you did, I didn’t know about it. Or don’t remember but Barr, you made a mistake. You fixed it or at least tried to. I can’t fault you and they need time, time to realize what’s happened. Give them time, give them space. Let them come to the conclusion on their own if you’re the person they want in their lives.”

Those sobs turn into cries and before Oliver knows it he’s pulling Barry onto his lap.

“It’s okay. Its okay I promise you that.” It’s a lie. It’s not going to be okay. He knows it.

“I want to fix it all. I want to fix this timeline. I want to go back and Save Dante.” He whispers against the crook of Oliver’s neck.

“You don’t know what they would do Barry. Going back and saving one person, you saw what it did with your mother. You don’t know if saving Dante will change something else. You can’t risk that.”

Barry pulls back. His eyes are red and puffy but all of that was quickly disappearing.

Damn speedster.

“I want to fix things. I hate not being…. I hate this dynamic with Cisco. It’s not who we are and I just—”

Oliver pats his back. “I know but Barr. You know what needs to be done and you pushing it won’t make it better. If anything it will push them further away.”

Oliver moves his head and cups Barry’s chin. He presses a soft kiss to his lips.

“Give them time. Promise.”

Barry nods. “Promise. Give them time.”

Mini Sea Pancakes! They are 6 inches wide and 9 inches long! 

They are perfect for putting in a bag or purse and pulling out when ever you need a cute fix. 

They will be up on my Etsy later this week, I am hoping to put more stock up this Wednesday of both minis and normal sea pancakes!
