Congratulations Raleigh on making the best first impression possible. So many movies the male character meets the female character through some misunderstanding or she hates him to begin with because she doesn’t “get” him. Raleigh is a perfect gentleman from the first second. HE SPEAKS JAPANESE. Like somewhere along the line he learned Japanese well enough to converse in it (and he’s already said that he and Yancy weren’t really good students, so this boy put some effort into this at some point). And he lets her know that he can keep up with her, but without really embarrassing her. His better or worse comment is disarming and his expression is completely charmed that he caught her judging him. So she’s already modifying her opinion of him by the second to last gif (and he succeeded in making her smile). And rather than laugh and swagger off, he gives her a very respectful nod, an acknowledgement of her culture rather than his. Everything about Raleigh focuses on Mako rather than himself.

emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.

this is important because so many people don’t know this

The girlfriend experience

> Any man who has ever had a girlfriend can attest to this.

> This is just too good. Animation, adorableness, substance. I really hope there are more of these.

It’s too adorable not to reblog again.

This is my roommate and his boyfriend. All the freaking way.

So this happened to me and my girlfriend except in the end I’m in the bathroom going, no no I’m fine just go away, stifling a bleeding nose

The press has a field day the day they decide to get matching tattoos. (“Mori and Becket: Will they ever get over their Ranger years?” “Matching tattoos, matching rings?”) But it’s Newt who’s the most excited about this, giving them his tattoo parlor’s address, going with them, filming when they get inked. The video goes viral on YouTube. The tattoo artist is booked for the next three years.

the artist is like ‘where you want it?’ to Mako and she’s like ‘with this arm I drew the sword that avenged my family so right here please. To symbolise my new family. Thank you.’ and Raleigh just hears that and his face does The Thing and the artist gets to him and is like ‘OK hotdog - where’s yours?’ and Raleigh is just ‘MY HEART - IT GOES OVER MY HEART’ and basically doesn’t take his eyes off Mako the entire time they’re in there (yes Raleigh speaks in all caps) (now excuse me for a moment i need to set myself on fire) (via harrietvane

let’s all take a minute to stop and think about how Hagrid gave Harry his homemade birthday cake, told him how much he looked like his parents, and fed him sausages before he even started to explain that he was a wizard

let’s stop to think about how his absolute first priority was to let harry know that he was loved and cared for

Rubeus Remus Potter is what Albus Severus’ name should have been.

the reason male comic book fans work themselves into a frenzied rage over “fake geek girls" is because they think they can’t get a girlfriend because of their love for comic books (a.k.a nerdiness). if they accept that geek girls genuinely love comic books, then they’re left with the cold harsh reality that it’s not their nerdiness that makes them unattractive to women, but the fact that they are misogynistic condescending dickbags who need to be avoided AT ALL COSTS
