“Me and Eleanor have been together ages and I don’t have a lot of private photos for myself. Even on a night out there’ll be some f**ker taking my picture and it goes everywhere. So those moments to ourselves are special. It’s the same way I look at Freddie. Do I wanna show him off and tell the world how amazing he is? Yes, of course I do! But I know he’s amazing and he knows that and that’s what matters.”

Guys it just really kills me how badly tubbo needs support and how little he gets it.
He didn't ever ask to be the president, and when he gave his acceptance speech he asked tommy to be his VP, to support him, to stand by his side because it was them against the world.
He needed the support of his best friend, he needed the support quackity and Fundy as his cabinet. He was always asking for their opinions and what they thought should happen and he kept saying he was trusting them to have his back, to help him make decisions too hard for him on his own.
And then when they were negotiating with dream everyone just kept comparing him to schlatt. The dictator. The guy who made Tubbo decorate his own execution. The guy who forced him to turn on his friends.
When he made a decision (that was, arguably I suppose, the only option that wouldn't put them in an equally bad if not worse situation) no one supported him in it, quackity and Fundy both actively told him he was wrong and were pissed at him for it.
Quackity is caught up in his own things with el rapids. After today's stream Fundy seems to be leaving for a 'long long time' as well. Besides Ranboo, who is doing his damnedest to be literally everyone's emotional support boi and therefore can't always be around, tubbo doesn't really have anyone backing him up.
In the end, it really is almost like Dream's been the most present support for Tubbo. And he's actively manipulating him for his own gain.
Tubbo's situation is as bad as Tommy's is, and no one seems to see it.

Just ‘I almost killed myself by running too hard’ thoughts.
Does?? Ben go to school anymore? Omniverse was very ambiguous on the subject. From what I can tell he did in AF/UAF but that was before his identity was outed. In OV he’s out and about during the day time doing alien/Plumber work and school isn’t so much as mentioned. I suppose it could be the summer but Ben absolutely should not be in school.
One, he gets attacked like multiple times a day, having him in one place for hours a day is not safe for him or the people around him. Two, Holy shit that child has enough on his plate already between daily patrols, world ending emergencies and like trying to have something of a decent life/rest schedule. Three, education is important but a normal human school is not going to teach Ben what he needs to know as an intergalactic hero.
But I can see his parents and Max forcing Ben to go back, making him cut his Plumber hours and trying to give him something of a ‘normal’ childhood before he has to grow up. But like, that shipped sailed loooong ago. Can you imagien you go to school and there’s this kid there who’s constantly on the news for saving the world, who’s traveled all over the universe, has the power to both become and kill God on his wrist... and he’s sitting next to you in Lit II. Ben would be both a celebrity but also people would keep far, far away from him. It’s intimidating being around famous people but also, Ben can be damned scary when he wants to be. I bet they won’t let him join any of the soccer clubs which would depress him so much.
Does Ben like, excuse himself if there’s an emergency? “Hi sorry gotta duck out of this quiz early, Vilgax was just spotted downtown so uh bye.” He would have to have a modified class and homework schedule to accommodate potentially missed classes and assignments. Ben himself must be furious about the whole thing, literally forced into the life of a superhero and he’s doing his damned best and now he has to deal with high school on top of it? Normal teen sdon’t want to go to school not to mention ones who have unofficial full time jobs with high, high stakes and expectations. And they expect him to study for calculus in between apocalypses?
Nuh uh Ben needs to be homeschooled. Even the Plumber’s Academy wouldn’t be a good fit for him, he needs something personalized to his bizarre and unique situation. I’m sure Max could set something up for him eventually. But I think he and everyone would have a bad like 6 month period of making Ben go to normal school, thinking its for the best, not knowing it’s just adding more stress and burden and isolation on his already hectic life.

That's why I'm here. You didn't want me with the men. You're worried I'll challenge Flint.

OH! also the way that Curtain straight up emotionally abused S.Q but is heaping all this feigned praise on Sticky is just the most perfect comparative ever because on one hand we have a scene where Curtain openly and clearly dismisses his son’s feelings and on the other we have this insidious, false adoration of Sticky and yet!!!! both boys are being used and manipulated by him but in two very separate ways tailored to keep them under his authority at all times

going to talk about how incredible lou wilson is as an actor forever but the part I keep going back to in the last episode is the bit where jammer is apologizing after the iron spike incident because there's so much to unpack in just a few seconds! we've seen so much of whitney's personality as a team leader who's confident and encouraging and kind. he gets excited about the magical potential he has and in that eagerness and confidence accidentally gets the misfits into a dangerous situation, and those few seconds of stammering through the apology after getting detention are just incredible from all the little details going through his mind that lou represents. that sort of uncomfortable chuckle at the beginning and trying to be lighthearted but sincere. trying and not finding the words to get it into a basketball metaphor. flickering eyes contact to mostly talking with his eyes down. worriedly/exasperatedly putting the wand down. it's such an expressive moment that I didn't appreciate enough the first watch around.

Thurs 7 Jan ‘21
Z3 Z3 Z3 Z3 Z3 Z3 Z3!!! Firstly Zayn posted a teaser of a red curtain, labeled 'tomorrow', beginning to rise with a snippet of a song-- it's Vibez! Vibez is HERE! NEW ZAYN MUSIC! And hell yeah that's super exciting (and the curtain is reminiscent of the filming at the theater last month I'm hopeful we're about to get that video) but THAT'S not the half of it-- Z3 listings are UP! 'Nobody is Listening' (friend we are ABOUT TO BE and I CANNOT WAIT) is out Jan 15 and has 11 songs (titles unrevealed with the exception of Better, already released, and Vibez). The cover art is a painting of a bright colorful sea of staring faces; everybody looking, nobody listening? Spotify also has Vibez cover art- a cool blocky noir looking painting- and a new photo of Zayn smouldering in a tank top. Happy almost Zayn's birthday to US, and thank you very much!
Liam did a long live today with an also long BEARD (oh shush on his FACE you guys) to talk about Saturday's show, but then he ends up talking to Ben Winston for most of it which is, as you can imagine, a mixed blessing. I mean all that 1D reminiscing is great for dredging up unknown tidbits for us but otoh Ben: the part where Liam puts manager Steve on to say hi to Ben and it's just the two of them is the worst content I've seen in a minute and I mean... Holivia is current..? ANYWAY, before Ben, Liam has his cousin Ross on and tells us Ross will also have cousin Luke playing drums for him at the show Sat, and snippets of all the openers' music are played. They discuss accents, and Liam, as usual, says that he was just on the phone to Louis (relatable I too immediately think of Louis when discussing strong British accents). And then the Ben chat: they talk about the We Are 1D Family fan project at San Siro and how the band didn't know it was going to happen, Liam talks about not wanting to do the Leroy piece for the BSE video (“haha remember I had a meltdown but you made me do it!”:/), and they talk about the two Midnight Memories videos-- we learn that Ben didn't have anything to do with the scrapped first one so he can't release it sorry, and “you guys didn't like it so we had to make a new one in like a week”. Liam: “no I preferred the first one!”, lol. Ben talks shit about not liking You and I (no wonder he did her so dirty), Liam: “WHAT??” and “didn’t Zayn’s high note turn you on a little bit? It had to!” sksksjfa okay calm down there, and then he turns me into the 'had me in the first half' meme when he says his least favorite 1D song is I Would! CAN YOU BELIEVE. He quickly realizes though that no! He means I WANT! Yeah okay that makes more sense but jeez Liam, don't mess with me like that! He also says (not about I Would or I Want), “when I was younger I didn't really understand the songs as much as I understand them now, they mean so much more to me later on in life than they ever have done before, the feeling, the emotions that come through, the lyric as well for some of them.” Oh and Ben mentions the Grammy awards being pushed to March 14 which btw I forgot to say yesterday so there ya go. New date. And last but not least, new LP Act 4 merch! RAINBOW HOODIE! Omg it's so good! The rest is great too but that rainbow hoodie (uh 'hoody' that is hmm why) is soooo nice.
9 am PST came and went without a single Holivia pap pic, but don't worry (darlings) they were just a little late today, though you'll be excused if you didn't realize there were new ones, as they are simply more of the same batch as yesterday's- it was a very exciting parking lot after all, they needed a lot of documentation! Harry grabbing Olivia's arm SO AWKWARDLY is a gem though, I'm starting to have doubts that they're even really friends now that I'm seeing them interact so much tbh. I think the press time excitement was supposed to be the 'candid' pics of them drinking coffee together with Harry in the spa robe (taken... maybe you can guess... YES! it was over the weekend!) but aside from being memed they didn't seem to get much traction. Even so, the press is still all over Holivia ofc and if you only read one article about it PLEASE make it the Harper's Bazaar one that marveled at today's pics “Wilde happened to be wearing the same outfit from last weekend” oh SO CLOSE YOU GUYS, defensively states that Harry was wearing a mask (in response to the many articles out there about people being mad at him for not wearing a mask which yes are very much still up and not being suppressed by HSHQ, btw) but some enterprising layout person placed a picture of him without a mask right under that line, and tells us twice in a row that their relationship is 'very organic'-- definitely 100% truly oBvIOusLy ORGANIC, 'a source' says so. So you can see that clearly it's all very organic. In case you were wondering! STRONG honorable press mention for Vogue though, who declared that Holivia were “already 2021's most stylish pair” with a picture of Harry in his paint splattered merch hoodie and pushed up sweats; but then they also said the other day that larries were people “who ship Harry with Liam Payne”...hey Vogue I really recommend getting an intern if you're struggling, so helpful!

What kills me in fics is when you have tags going like "Good brother Jason", which, cool, but in the same story there's " Dick TRIES to be a Good Brother" LOL way to switch the dynamics. I also tend to stay clear of the ones where the centric character seems to have a platonic relationship tag with everyone (including the ones where they're antagonists in canon like Jason & Tim) except Dick. You can feel the hate/dislike/prejudice a MILE away.
Yeeeeeeah. You are definitely not alone. Like pretty much every Dick Grayson stan I’ve ever talked to on the subject stays the hell away from any fic tagged “Dick Grayson tries to be a good brother.”
LOL like....it’s basically what I was talking about in that older post I just reblogged a few minutes ago. That thing where Dick’s actions or choices in a canon story or fic aren’t judged on their own merits but are rather inherently weighed against some hypothetical perfect choice that he DIDNT make and so he’s basically evaluated based on how much he falls short of that mark each time instead of anything he actually did.
Sorry not sorry, but I’m just not interested in stories that TRANSFORM the character most commonly referred to as the emotional glue of the family and the only one who consistently even CARES about them all being a family....into the fumbling incompetent relationship disaster man who at best gets credit for at least putting in an attempt at being there for his family.
Especially not when Bruce and Jason and Tim are praised for doing the bare minimum in canon when it comes to family interactions while everything Dick ACTUALLY did is just completely ignored and overwritten in order to make his Failure to People Good the narrative obstacle to be overcome.
Now, the “Dick Grayson Tries To Be A Good Brother” tag applied to Tim-centric fics in particular tho....hoo boy I am out of there so fast there’s a Kool-Aid Man shaped hole in the wall and not a sign of me as far as the horizon.
Like, currently my Pet Peeve Thermostat is set to Battle for the Cowl-referencing fics that don’t use this tag but very much are in that spirit. You probably know the ones, like their summaries suggest they’re open to considering Dick’s side of the situation but turns out the author at most is throwing him a “well at least you tried not to suck” bone while still reading him the riot act for very much still sucking.
Because what drives me up a flipping WALL here in particular, when I naively click on a link that seems different from the usual and ignore the voice of experience because I’m just desperate enough for Tim and Dick food that doesn’t just go on and on about how Dick ruined their brotherhood and it will never be truly repaired....
What makes the fruit bats in my belfry go absolutely B-A-N-A-N-A-S is not just the super fun realization that Psych! You thought this fic might be different but it’s actually the same!
It’s how much people, both writers AND commenters, just absolutely LOVE to reference Tim’s shitbag parents and how emotionally abusive and neglectful they were (all true and valid, btw, let’s be totally clear about that)....but bringing them up here specifically to emphasize just how great Dick’s ‘betrayal’ was and how what he did makes him no better than them.
It’s like. Oh. I see.
So because after twenty years worth of stories about Dick dropping everything the second Tim needs him, whether it’s for help or just advice or even just reassurance or comfort or ANYTHING ....because after two decades worth of content showing Dick absolutely doting on Tim in their EVERY SINGLE interaction and buttressing his self confidence at every opportunity, never passing up a chance to call him his brother and emphasize that they’re family and he loves Tim and is so proud of him...
Because after all that there’s a story whose very premise forced Dick to choose between two kids, both still very much his brothers and their shared father’s sons even if one was new to him and didn’t have the same history the other two had....
Because by the very nature of the story Dick had no choice but to prioritize one over the other due to them both hating each other and Dick already being stretched to his absolute limits trying to live his dead father’s life and take on everything Bruce used to do at the cost of giving up everything Dick had chosen for his own life and wants and priorities, all while dealing with his own grief....
And with it being inevitable that the boy he DIDNT choose to prioritize was going to be hurt....
Because after twenty years of never failing to put Tim first the second Tim needed him, never even putting HIMSELF first OVER Tim....because for the first time Dick felt that someone else he felt obligated to, felt a responsibility towards, actually needed him MORE than Tim....
And for that reason and that reason ONLY, Dick picked that other boy, all while trying his best to tell Tim that he still needed him, still valued him, all the things that Bruce DIDNT tell him when he took Robin not even because he thought someone else needed it at the time but simply to take away, with absolutely nothing Dick said in any way negating or contradicting any of his many, MANY assurances to Tim over the years that they were brothers and always would be and with them still very much legally brothers and with concrete ties to each other that declared them family even WITHOUT the connection of Robin....
Because after and despite ALL OF THAT, Dick picked the brother that he didn’t know and frankly didn’t even LIKE, because he knew no one else was going to pick this kid and he also knew he’d already picked Tim a hundred times before and hoped that at least all that HISTORY of past focus and attention he’d given Tim to help build him up, give him foundations to build further upon, that hopefully at least that history that was still there, still relevant, still something Tim had actively benefited and grown from in ways Dick now hoped to help Damian....like surely this would be of at least SOME significance to Tim, SOME kind of proof of how much Dick loved and valued Tim....
Because one time and one time ONLY, Dick DIDNT put Tim’s needs first, not because he didn’t want to or because he was being selfish or short sighted or simply didn’t care, but rather solely because this one time Tim’s needs were in direct opposition with the needs of another young boy Dick saw as his responsibility and in even greater need and with even less of a foundation than the one Dick had helped Tim build....
This puts Dick on the same level as Tim’s shitbag parents, the ones who are infamous for (and practically synonymous with) emotional abuse and neglect. Dick’s basically interchangeable with them now. Certainly no better than them. Tim’s entire emotional well-being rested on Dick and Dick alone and nothing he’d provided Tim with in the past counts, just this one moment in time right here right now, that’s the entirety of their relationship see, it all comes down to this and nothing else, and because Dick didn’t put Tim first, no matter WHAT his reasons or how much he wanted to, he has officially failed Tim as hard as the neglectful parents who did nothing BUT neglect, ignore and just not give a shit at all, simply because they couldn’t be bothered to.

sometimes i think about how the only thing that changed between sam post-dean’s death in mystery spot and sam post-dean’s death at the start of s4 was ruby. sometimes i think about how having a connection, any connection, outside of the complicated mess of hangups in the winchester family history, about having someone he could relate to, about knowing that he was not alone in feeling damned and wanting more, was the sole barrier between sam going into an obsessive spiral
sometimes i think about how angry dean and bobby got about sam trying to do good with his powers, not knowing that re-using his powers for good was the only reason sam was functioning at all. sometimes i think about ruby taking care of sam, in her own way, in ways that others maybe didn’t approve of but that worked, of sam who can’t leave his past behind in a normal life but can’t become the kind of vengeance-obsessed hunter that john was and that he could so easily slip into without someone there to remind him who he is, and of finding a middle ground by taking his past and what people have done to him and using it for good.
sometimes i think about how castiel identified sam as ‘the boy with the demon blood’ and how maybe it was not supposed to be a cruel thing, because cas does not understand what is cruel and what is kind at the best of times and the angels watched and knew. maybe this was a kindness. maybe this was sam winchester, boy with the demon blood, who used it to help and save and protect. sometimes i think about ruby whose job would be infinitely easier if sam were emotionless and manipulable and instead loving him, giving him the opportunity to love himself, to learn that he is not broken, that he is not damned, that he is more than whatever demons did to him. sometimes i think about sam winchester.

i just want to be a kid who wasn't born like this
tags: saiki kusuo, saiki k reawakened (more like cleaning up the mess of their implications because Netflix writers wouldn't know nuance if it hit them with a brick), post-canon, mentall illness
trigger warnings: suicidal ideation and disdain towards surviving (this is very big!), mild swearing, canon-typical violence.
Kusuo spent the rest of the evening digesting and confronting the fact that he was not human.
He was brushing his teeth to the rhythm of not human, not human, not human. The showerhead whispered as it sprayed not human, not human, not human. Before sleeping in the silence created by his germanium ring, his heart beat with not human, not human, not human. Every moment, words echoing between his ears not human, not human, not human.
It had been a very long time since he considered himself fully human; so why did it hurt this bad to have it confirmed? He felt lonely like this, a being in a class of its own, isolated by his unique power. Even Aiura and Toritsuka weren't this powerful. despite being strong psychics, too, he could probably kill them both with a flick, or even a turn of his head without his limiters on. Kusuo should try even harder to cut off his idiots, they'd make it hard and his own will would make it harder, but it was for them. He couldn't have himself losing control and hurting them, wouldn't be able to live with himself if he did. Could he die? He could probably figure it out. Is it possible that this curse has revoked his right to love and right to die?
The injustice of it all welled up in his throat, and it was the possibility of what he could do to everyone in the vicinity that kept him from screaming. He didn't want this, never wanted any of it, he was still a kid for fuck's sake! Kids aren't supposed to worry about killing their friends because of some ridiculous powers they never even wanted!
Kusuo teleported to his special spot in the desert to throw what was, if he was honest with himself, a fit. Rocks flying everywhere and screams breaking the sound barrier, he felt a little better. When the crashes ceased, millions of years of nature's hard work lay scattered in chunks all around him and there were tear tracks through the dust covering his face.
A voice that sounded an awful lot like his brother's floated through his head, reminding him how childish he was being. It probably wasn't actually his brother, but he responded with a venous 'fuck you, I am a child.' for good measure.
Feeling irrationally guilty for the damage, he restored time on the landscape around him and used the last of his energy to teleport home. Kusuo changed and later when he lay in bed, he found himself too tired to sleep. The silence he had almost begun to take for granted before bed was gone, replaced by a cacophony of dreams and thoughts from everyone within a 200 meter radius. He almost got up to grab his germanium ring before remembering he had carelessly tossed it into the trash a couple days ago. After laying there a little longer, Kusuo noticed his mouth getting sticky and his face wet.
He was crying. Again. 'I need to get a better grip, come on' he chastised.
His tear ducts did not listen, rudely in Kusuo's opinion. If he was loud, his parents might hear and come running in. They'd have good intentions, but they wouldn't understand what the problem is, why being this way would make him feel so painfully alone. They couldn't know, he couldn't burden them like that.
It's fine. Saiki Kusuo is not human anymore, not really, and this has rendered him completely alone, but it's fine. He'll manage. He always has, always will. He'll put one foot in from of the other and avoid launching himself into space to suffocate or crushing in his peers skulls by accident or letting himself love and feel. It's what he's always done, what's a little longer?
