you're someone i used to know

  • ---Outside Keith's Room---
  • Lance: Hey, Keith? Buddy, you in there?
  • Keith: Go away Lance.
  • Lance: //Enters anyway//
  • ---Inside Keith's Room---
  • Keith: I don't want to talk Lance, just leave me alone ok?
  • Lance: Hey, nobody's seen you since breakfast, who said anything about talking? I came to make sure you hadn't died or something.
  • Keith: ....
  • Lance: But we could always talk since I'm here now anyway. //Sits on the bed//
  • Keith: Lance-
  • Lance: C'mon man, everyone's worried about you. You barely show your face around the castle, and whenever you do you avoid everyone like you're on some kind of stealth mission.
  • Keith: //Scoffs// Nobody is worried about me, and I'm not avoiding everyone... I just...
  • Lance: //Frowns// Keith, we're a team, if you're upset, we all feel it. The whole team's out of whack. Just talk to me - despite what Pidge might have told you, I am great with feelings and junk.
  • Keith: I don't - It's just - Ugh, it's just easier not to see everyone judging me, and hating me if I'm not around them, ok?! I don't care what you say, I've seen the way they look at me - and I look normal now, but what if it gets worse? What if I do start going purple? Or I sprout fur or something stupid like that. How would they look at me then? I'd be just another Galra....... Lance, I don't think I should be on the team anymore.
  • Lance: Wait what? Are you kidding! You think you should be off the team? The team that the Red Lion chose you for? That's crazy! Keith, you've saved everyone's butts loads of times, what would we do without you? How would we form Voltron? And you know, keep the universe safe?
  • Keith: You'd find someone else-
  • Lance: There is no one else Keith! *You're* the Red Paladin. So what if you're Galra? ... Well, sure, there's the whole being a member of the race that's 'trying to take over the universe, destroy entire civilisations and trying to kill us all the time' thing but-
  • Keith: Great, that makes me feel much better.
  • Lance: Well when I say it like that it sounds bad, but that's not all you are. You're Keith first, before any of all that. It's just been a bit of a shock - it's raw you know? Everyone will come to terms with it, trust me... Like I don't know if you've noticed, but Hunk's pretty much got an alien girlfriend
  • Keith: What?
  • Lance: Sure, nobody's judging. And we've all seen Shiro's badass glowing arm thing - also Galra I might add. Does it make us think any less of him? No way! And I'm also convinced Pidge is part computer, I just don't have any proof yet.
  • Keith: //Smiles//
  • Lance: Allura's probably gonna take a little longer than the rest of us, but she's still hurting, and hey, she's like over 10,000 years old, she just needs to get with the times. Like, Galra Keith? Whatever, am I right?
  • Keith: ...... //Chuckles// Thanks Lance.
  • Lance: So don't worry, just come back to the team, we miss you. We've all got our little hang ups and stuff, so it's ok
  • Keith: Yeah, everyone except you - you're perfect
  • Lance: Uh-
  • Keith: - ! //Flustered//
  • Lance: //Flustered as hell//

— Yves Navarre, Friends Gone With the Wind

Sometimes, I’ll just be going about my day and it’s just an average Tuesday and then sometimes – this feeling hits me out of nowhere.

This super heavy feeling in my chest that makes me feel like I can’t breathe sometimes.

And sometimes, when that feeling hits me, it feels like you’re with me and I can breathe again.

And in that moment, I will laugh because I remember something funny you did or how easily and unconditionally you made me feel love – especially today, in a world that doesn’t seem to love easily. A world that doesn’t seem to love at all.

And somehow, even if just in that moment, it seems like I’ll be okay again.
Maybe not today.
But someday.
Someday I’ll be okay again.

The world around us may have changed, but we haven’t.

And then sometimes, I remember you’re gone… but then, I’ll remember your smile.

And then I smile.

—  I miss you. I miss you so much.
Things The Signs Have Said That Break My Heart
  • Aries: Was I ever anything more than a sad kid? I thought the drugs would help, but they just make you sadder and a little deader. I really tried my best, but I don't think there's much use anymore. Nobody cared then, and nobody cares now.
  • Taurus: I'm sorry, but I fell in love with you. I watch you move and I'm captivated. The world slows down just a little bit when I look at you. I wanna kiss your long neck, and run my fingers through your curly hair. I wanna listen to you talk for hours about old movies and bad music. I wanna hear every word that you have to say. But I can't, because you're in love with someone else
  • Gemini: I dreamed so much as a little kid. All those dreams are dead know. The world has a lot of fun killing little girls dreams.
  • Cancer: Please don't go! Stay! Stay! I need you to stay! No one ever stays.
  • Leo: I used to be special. Everyone thought I was going to be this amazing person. They thought I would do great things, but look at me. I'm nothing. If I was anything, it would be a failure.
  • Virgo: She just left. She didn't say anything. In one simple second, all the love and laughter that we had, was ripped from both of us. She just decided she did't feel like loving me anymore.
  • Libra: It's all gone. Any hope that I had is gone.
  • Scorpio: Do you think that if I get prettier, he might look at me like he used to? Maybe he'll love me again.
  • Sagittarius: The whole world is at my fingertips, they say, but I can't seem to ever grab it.
  • Capricorn: I could tell she didn't love me anymore. She would smile, but in her eyes I could see the pity and slight disgust she had for me. I tried to stop loving her, but I couldn't. I felt pathetic, like I was stood up. But this time I couldn't just go home and forget about it the next day. She was, and still is, my everything.
  • Aquarius: I don't want to feel this anymore. I don't want to be trapped in my mind. I want to live again. I just want to see the light one more time.
  • Pisces: Could you just tell me you love me? You don't have to mean it. I just want, for a second, to feel loved.

I don’t now why I’m holding on to you

There is nothing to hold on to

I use to be scared of losing you

I think I still am somehow

Like if I let you go then I officially lost you

If I just hold on to every little memory

Maybe you’ll come back

But I know you won’t

And that’s even scarier

pthepolarbear  asked:

Okay, I'm sorry to bother you and I don't even know if you take these sort of asks, but in HLV right before Sherlock is shot and they're looking at Janine (who's been hit over the head) on the floor? I just noticed that like the carpet in the room John got shot in by Eurus, there was a bright red carpet below her shaped like a bloodstain. I don't know if this means anything or if you're still interested in this sort of thing or if you already knew, but I just thought it was noteworthy.

deviant-doll said to inevitably-johnlocked: Hi there! I just noticed something while rewatching HLV and I don’t know what to make of it (or if someone already noticed), but when they are in CAM’s office, Janine is lying on a carpet which looks exactly like the one in the therapist/Eurus’ office, the big blood red one… it’s fleeting but it’s definitively there… could this fit in one of the theories going on around here? I’m not used to write meta, but just had to share the thought with someone ☺

Okay, I don’t know if you’re both the same person, but these two asks came in only a couple days apart, and only took so long because I didn’t see the rug in CAM’s office, since there’s no above-shot of it at all. This was the best I could get:

Which actually I think is the EXACT same rug as the one in TLD:

It’s got the same little sploochy ends on it (just go with it okay LOL), so I do think they reused that prop. The questions now are: 

  1. Was it deliberately done as a foreshadowing of events (John will be shot, which is what I think the surface symbolism of the rug is in TLD), and is symbolic of blood / injury?
  2. IF TLD is part of John’s TAB, is this something John placed in his story because he has seen it before when he helped Janine?
  3. If TLD is part of Unreliable Narrator, is this something Sherlock added as a detail?
  4. If this is Sherlock’s mind palace, is this a little detail he plopped into his story because he had seen it before when John was helping Janine?
  5. Or is it just a nice prop that was expensive and they wanted to give it more screen time?

All are pretty valid thoughts, I think. Either way, there must be a reason it’s SO prominent in TLD. It shows up very glaringly in many scenes with the therapist, and I think it’s mostly foreshadowing John’s possible gun-shot.

how to deal with paranoia when you're home alone

since being alone generally makes my paranoia worse, I figured I’d share some things I do to make myself feel safer.

• pulling down shades - helps you feel better by keeping people from watching you outside.

• keeping music on or watching a (non triggering) video/movie - helps distract you from any noises that you might perceive as dangerous.

• put tape over camera/webcam - helps you feel safer when using your computer.

• stay in contact with friends/family - knowing someone that cares for you is available is helpful.

if you have any of your own coping strategies feel free to add on!
(anyone can reblog this post)

People who constantly have to stress how good they are at video games are so exhausting tbh. Like when I’m telling someone how difficult I found a certain boss and that someone is immediately like Hahaha lmao lol I beat it on my first try haha :)
That’s great, Timothy, I’m happy for you. But it doesn’t make you cool. You know what it makes you? A boring person to talk to.

If you’re one of those blogs/followers who only see Scorpios just as “sex”, then please, unfollow me. I’m getting tired to see every damn post on tumblr describing us with only the “sex” word. Like dammit ! Scorpio is so much more than sex ! We don’t go and fuck around with every random bitches, that we meet. How such a cautious and guarded sign like ours, could go and fuck around with literally anybody ? Do you guys even know how selective we actually are about our partners ? It takes us like months just to get into a relationship or even consider someone as a “friend”, and yet, you all describe us as a “fuck machine" ? Like FUCK YOU ! If you only sees us that way, then I’m sorry my dear, but you don’t know anything about our sign at all. Meanwhile, air signs are fucking and cheating much more than us out there and yet, I don’t see anyone complaining !

cloakarts  asked:

I'm sorry but, how is glorifying punching nazis a good thing? Yes, the ideology is horrible and should not be accepted, but when you're going out of your way to use gratuitous violence against someone for their ideology regardless of circumstances? How is it good to crumble to their level, and then go further by comitting violence instead of discrediting them + using the law? I'm honestly confused and scared that people who fight for freedom are starting to justify violence in a non-ironic way.

i understand your concern, but “regardless of circumstances” does not apply here, since the circumstance is: they’re nazis. literal, armband-and-jackboot nazis. we know what nazis do, what they’re like, what happens if they get comfortable. there is a very, very big historical precedent for it

fascism is not an ideology we can bring to the table and have a reasonable discussion with because its core premise is that one nationality (theirs) is superior to others while everyone else must submit. there’s no debating with this, there’s no compromising, there’s no “everyone can be content,” a nazi’s first, last, and only goal is to make the world their own

“discrediting” is largely irrelevant, since nazis aren’t exactly hamstrung by facts, or accuracy, or reality. and if someone’s not immediately against literal nazism on its face, you probably won’t win them over at all, sorry to say it. “using the law” is a real scattershot solution since cops and courts, depending on your area, might not see fascists as a threat (they certainly didn’t give a fuck in the college town i went to). prosecution is even tougher since nazis, being used to lawsuits after a time, do their best to tiptoe and loophole where they can. after all, even with 70+ years of trying to stomp the ideology out, it’s still wiggling

but if you’re really concerned that violence would invalidate the cause of democracy, or that a real “fight for freedom” shouldn’t involve violence, well, i have bad news for you:

sometimes that’s what it takes

dr-hegemony  asked:

You know with all the problems that Kaladesh, Theors and now Amonkhet it really seems like Wizards of the Coast could really do with having an Anthropologist on staff to make sure they don't totally misrepresent peoples cultures when using those cultures as inspiration for set designs. Like just someone to go, you're f**king up here, might want to try a different approach.

Theros and Amonkhet have problems? Serious question. Theros felt like a greek myth set, it was the enchantment theme that wasn’t really recieved, from my understanding.

Amonkhet seems really cool so far. I think I should be clear that when we’re talking real-world influences, we don’t expect it to be a literal copy. That would be pretty boring and problematic in a lot of regards (see: Arabian Nights). A top-down world should ‘feel’ like what it is inspired by without also being that thing. I’m sharing a lot of factual information on ancient Egypt because I find it fascinating, not because I expect Amonkhet to be the same.

Kaladesh was not a top-down design. The problem, for me and for others, is that there won’t be an Indian top-down set, and so Kaladesh is what we get. I think a lot of my issues, at least, can be resolved on a return with a few relatively minor changes to give it a bit more of what I’d expect from an Indian block. This has been talked about in the community a lot already, it’s just not worth continuing the discussion. Wizards does care, and they’re paying attention to issues like this.

As for the anthropologist? No. They’d have to employ an entire anthropology department to cover every culture they brush up against.

What they should do, and more importantly, what they are doing, is hire consultants to advise them on topics they’re not familiar with. Bringing on Monique Jones to help create Kaya was really well received. More importantly, though, is that the consultants advise on what kinds of things to do to emphasize the flavor of a culture, and not just what to avoid. Kaladesh had mixed results, but I think it’ll be better next time around. And future sets will be even better for having this kind of policy in place.

the signs as summer
  • Aries: Heat waves and dried out fields filled with crickets and dragonflies. Trees whisper in the wind, gray clouds roll over, and birds fly over silently. There's enough static electricity in the air to feel it.
  • Taurus: The smell of flowers is heavy in the air and lightning bugs blink in the sky as it fades from orange and pink to purple to blue and finally black. The grass is cool and you sleep with the window open.
  • Gemini: Golden hour turns your surroundings to solid gold. Your eyes sparkle and you friend's hair glows in the setting sun. Hands still sticky with ice cream you can't help but to smile and laugh.
  • Cancer: Peaches, plums, and blueberries, bees buzz around you, but they mean no harm. Life seems just as sweet laying on a picnic blanket with your best friend staring at the clouds.
  • Leo: The smell of sunscreen and sun bleached hair, the salt spray from the ocean stings your eyes and the lull of ocean waves calms you. The sun rises from it's bed of clouds and embraces the earth for yet another day.
  • Virgo: Eyes squinting in the sun as it slowly sets and skin turned the slightest hint of red. The hollow sound of a wooden boardwalk and a sundress blown about in the breeze. The smell of good food and sounds of laughter fill the air.
  • Libra: Driving around town with the windows open; hair wind blown, cheeks flushed, music playing loud, and a smile to make your face hurt. The smell of fresh air and taste of ripe fruit, you hope you never reach your destination.
  • Scorpio: The view of a city from the hills above, the lights glow and motorcycle engines blare on unseen highways. The stars poke their holes in the fabric of the night sky and the earth beneath your feet is dry, you know things no one else does.
  • Sagittarius: The sky is forever twilight as a fire burns on the shore of a lake known only to you and your friends. You take turns jumping and pushing each other into the water. Laughing, screaming, yelling you hope the night never ends.
  • Capricorn: Empty soccer fields and deserted shopping centers. The world feels devoid of people under the lamps of parking lots and broken scoreboards. You drown yourself in the fluorescent lighting of the also empty grocery store.
  • Aquarius: Late night walks in quiet neighborhoods, the few illuminated houses give you glimpses into lives other than your own. Animals rustle in the bushes and you go home to stare at your ceiling fan and play music to fill your mind.
  • Pisces: Warm days still spent inside, you rest your head in your arms in the sill of an open window. You simply watch the earth as it moves in every way imaginable. Someone you love is laying in your bed, their breath barely audible as they sleep. You wouldn't dare disturb them and your heart aches for them.
