Female, twenty one, terrifying ice queen.
Little by little, you're just letting yourself become [you].
For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.
You are 12. You’re at the library looking for some generic young adult fiction novel about a girl who falls for her best friend. Your dad makes a disgusted face. “This is about lesbians,” he says. The word falls out of his mouth as though it pains him. You check out a different book and cry when you get home, but you aren’t sure why. You learn that this is not a story about you, and if it is, you are disgusting.
You are 15. Your relatives are fawning over your cousin’s new boyfriend. “When will you have a boyfriend?” they ask. You shrug. “Maybe she’s one of those lesbians,” your grandpa says. You don’t say anything. You learn that to find love and acceptance from your family, you need a boyfriend who thinks you are worthy of love and acceptance.
You are 18. Your first boyfriend demands to know why you never want to have sex with him. He tells you that sex is normal and healthy. You learn that something is wrong with you.
You are 13. You’re at a pool party with a relative’s friend’s daughter. “There’s this lesbian in my gym class. It’s so gross,” she says. “Ugh, that’s disgusting,” another girl adds. They ask you, “do you have any lesbians at your school?” You tell them no and they say you are lucky. You learn to stay away from people.
You are 20. You have coffee with a girl and you can’t stop thinking about her for days afterwards. You learn the difference between a new friendship and new feelings for a person.
You are 13. Your mom is watching a movie. You see two girls kiss on screen. You feel butterflies and this sense that you identify with the girls on the screen. Your mom gets up and covers the screen. You learn that if you are like those girls, no one wants to see it.
You are 20. You and your friends are drunk and your ex-boyfriend dares you to make out with your friend. You both agree. You touch her face. It feels soft and warm. Her lips are small and her hands feel soft on your back. You learn the difference between being attracted to someone and recognizing that someone you care about is attractive.
You are 16. You find lesbian porn online. Their eyes look dead and their bodies are positioned in a way that you had never imagined. You learn that liking girls is acceptable if straight men can decide the terms.
You are 20. You are lying next to a beautiful girl and talking about everything. You tell her things that you don’t usually tell anyone. You learn how it feels not to want to go to sleep because you don’t want to miss out on any time with someone.
You are 15. Your parents are talking about a celebrity. Your dad has a grin on his face and says, “her girlfriend says that she’s having the best sex of her life with her!” You learn that being a lesbian is about the kind of sex you have and not how you love.
You are 18. You are in intro to women’s and gender studies. “Not all feminists are lesbians- I love my husband! Most of the feminists on our leadership team are straight! It’s just a stereotype,” the professor exclaims. You learn that lesbianism is something to separate yourself from.
You are 21 and you are kissing a beautiful girl and she’s your girlfriend and you understand why people write songs and make movies and stupid facebook statuses about this and time around you just seems to stop and you could spend forever like this and you learn that there is nothing wrong with you and you are falling in love.
You are 21. And you are okay.a thing I wrote after arguing with an insensitive dude on facebook all day or Things Other People Taught me about Liking Girls (via samanticshift)

We should clear something up: ghosts are not monsters. Equally terrible, undoubtedly, but ghosts drift like rivers, telling truths, levelling banks of peeling wallpaper and rotting iron widow’s walks.
Monsters gnash. They are hungry, darling, longing for that burst of blood in their mouths, the rip of muscles. If silence is a drug to the specters, the offerings in those temples demolished by those bombs during those wars, then the impact of the shells are the demons. Horrific, this longing to be a bullet lodged in a ventricle, clogging with red, oxygenated or not.
You cough up blood with no noise that night: you are ghost and monster at once—perhaps this is how we should define humans. This is the dialect we should give ourselves: you corpse your hands in the fire; you are the flames.

do me a favour. if a person wearing a long sleeved shirt or a sweatshirt and jeans on a hot day, don’t comment on it. don’t ask why they’re wearing it. don’t say anything at about it.
trust me, they know it’s hot, they know. but their reason for wearing what they’re wearing probably far outweighs the temperature outside.
this is so god damn important

Proof that Tony Stark has a Heart
Back ground nurse:
"I have a shirt here, if you…oh my. wow. Hello.
There is no shirt here.”
Tumblr wins the internet again.
So you’re really going through with this?
#lets take a moment to appreciate this deleted scene #lets take to look at our lives and realize how neglected Rhodey is in our fandom #look at this man for a moment #i know the scene wasnt in the movie but that doesnt say any less of rhodey #he is loyal and he has faith in tony #he has faith in the asshole best friend he has and his ability to survive #because rhodey knows tony is better than he thinks he is #and rhodey would even take a bullet before he stops having faith in tony #that and the fact that he’d do anything to save tony is probably the top 5 reasons why i love him #rhodey #feels again #sorry #there should be a parallel of this and that scene when Steve doesnt listen to Colonel Phillips and goes save Bucky’s ass…
We can’t keep risking assets, least of all you. You know any of these guys would walk through fire to have your career.
Rhodey is a Lt. Colonel in the Air Force and one of their best men across the board. But somehow people tend to write him as an asshole with no skills or talents beyond being a shitty friend to Tony. This general doesn’t want to risk one of his best soldiers in the search for Tony Stark, and that soldier is Rhodey. On Tony’s jet when they’re drunk and babbling and Rhodey tells Tony that he has it in him to be a hero and a great man, Tony’s response is pretty much, “I can’t do that, I’m not like you,” basically just saying “you’re a great man and a hero and I could never measure up to you.” Tony sees what this General sees in Rhodey, that he’s talented and valuable to both the military and Tony personally. There’s even another deleted scene where Tony and Rhodey are out in the fray together while he’s being kidnapped, and Tony is a screaming mess, just yelling Rhodey’s name in a “come save me” manner.
I want to see more of Rhodey The Hero in MCU fanworks. Rhodey The Full-Bird Colonel. Rhodey The MIT Grad And Engineer. Rhodey The Asset That The Military Would Sacrifice Its #1 Arms Manufacturer For. Rhodey The Person That Tony Cries Out For During A Hail Of Bullets. Rhodey The Best Friend of Tony Stark. Rhodey The Man Who Rescued Tony, And Wouldn’t Give Up Until He Did.
I could even deal with people not shipping Rhodey with folks and just writing him in a more positive canon-accurate way. Just stop erasing him, because he exists and is a big part of Tony’s life. At that point in the film, he is the biggest part of Tony’s life.
“Rhodey The Asset That The Military Would Sacrifice Its #1 Arms Manufacturer For.”
Just wanted to emphasize that one. Tony talks about a military industrial complex that isn’t being held accountable, and yeah I’m sure that’s true in real life as well as the MCU, but in this particular case it’s the CIVILIANS who need to be held accountable—it’s Tony Stark and Obadiah Stane, the weapons’ manufacturers, who have to shut it down or BE shut down. Whereas this two-star general KNOWS that Rhodey is worth TEN Tony Starks. The military respects Rhodey and Rhodey respects the military, and TONY respects the military in large part because he’s seen again and again a prime example of an officer and a gentleman in James Rhodes.
#rhodey can join the army-assassin fun club#founding members and co-presidents nat and clint#secretary sam#p.r.o. steve#rhodey can be treasurer bc after years as tony’s bff he knows how to handle money
♔ Until the last falling star.
