THE FACT THAT THIS POOR KID HALF DIED AND TURNED INTO SOMETHING HIS PARENTS DESPISE AND HOW HE WAS ALREADY AWKWARD AND BULLIED TO BEGIN WITH BUT HE PULLS THROUGH HE TRIES TO DO THE RIGHT THING EVEN WHEN THERE’S A MILLION REASONS WHY HE SHOULDN’T. HE STILL TRIES HIS HARDEST. HE STAYS UP ALL NIGHT FIGHTING EVIL AND RISKING HIS HALF LIFE FOR PEOPLE WHO HATE HIM. FOR PEOPLE WHO YELL AT HIM. FOR SLEEPING IN CLASS OR FOR FORGETTING CHORES OR FAILING A TEST. HE KEEPS HIS ANGER IN CHECK BECAUSE HIS POWERS LEAK OUT IN HIS RAGE. HE TREATS HIS WOUNDS HIMSELF BECAUSE HE DOESN’T WANT TO WORRY ANYONE AND BECAUSE HE’S NOT SURE IF HIS BLOOD WORK IS HUMAN. HE HAS TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE FROM TWO SEPARATE VIEWS: THE PARENTS WHO LOVE HIM AND THE SCIENTISTS WHO WANT TO DISSECT HIM, THE BULLY WHO BEATS HIM YET REVERES HIM AS A HERO, THE GIRL WHO LOVES HIM BUT WILL SHOOT HIM ON SIGHT. THE ONLY MAN WHO COULD POSSIBLY UNDERSTAND HIM WANTS HIS FATHER DEAD AND WOULD USE HIM AS A TOOL. HE SHOULDERS SO MUCH RESPONSIBILITY AND IS EXPECTED TO UPHOLD THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF A GROWING TEENAGER. WHAT KIND OF JOB OR FUTURE DOES A HALF DEAD GHOST DREAM ABOUT? NOT AN ASTRONAUT. NOT WITH THOSE GRADES. AND WHEN HE DOES SEE HIS FUTURE, WHAT DOES HE SEE? HE SEES A MONSTER. DESTROYING AND KILLING EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE AND ENJOYING IT. AND EVEN IF HE’S AVOIDED THAT FUTURE, JUST HOW EASY IS IT TO SET IT BACK IN MOTION? ONE SLIP UP. JUST ONE. AND HE THINKS ABOUT IT CONSTANTLY. HE’S FOURTEEN AND HE HAS TO DEAL WITH PROTECTING A TOWN, ACCEPTING HIS EXISTENCE, MAKING SURE HE DOESN’T TURN INTO A MONSTER, THE PARANOIA OF BEING FOUND OUT AND WHAT THAT COULD ENTAIL, TWO-FACING FRIENDS AND FAMILY, THE PRESSURES OF SCHOOL, BULLYING, AND STRESSING OVER GRADES, OF LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF A FAMILY OF GENIUSES, OF CRUSHING ON HIS FRIEND BUT NOT WANTING TO RUIN WHAT THEY HAVE, AND THE GUILT OF CANCELING PLANS WITH FRIENDS BECAUSE OF A GHOST ATTACK OR NOT BEING ABLE TO LOOK HIS MOTHER IN THE EYE AS HE CONSTANTLY LIES TO HER FACE, OF HIDING WOUNDS AND SCARS AND LAUGHING IT OFF SO NO ONE WORRIES ABOUT HIM WHEN INSIDE HE’S READY TO BURST. WOW, I WONDER WHY I LIKE DANNY PHANTOM?
Danny Phantom is actually perfect.
Woah. How is it even possible for me to have so much respect for a cartoon character?
HE NEEDS ALL THE RESPECT AND LOVE HE CAN GET
JUST LOOK AT HIM
THE NEED I HAVE TO PROTECT THIS CHILD IS UNGODLY
Badass trips on a not-so-badass budget.
Many travel blogs are written by people who’ve sold all their possessions and have taken a huge plunge into the world of long-term travel. This can sound expensive at first, but when you consider that you don’t have rent or…
my dog thinks he’s some kind of supermodel or something
bruno omg come on
your dog is more fierce than I will ever be
My therapist told me instead of hurting myself I should draw something pretty were I want to cut. This is the result. And it works, honestly. If you’re struggling with self harm I really recommend this. (Make sure you use a marker and not a pen cause pens can hurt you! )
So much respect.
THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY IN MANY WAYS
Finnick Odair was forced to prostitute himself by the people who put him in an arena to be murdered for their own entertainment and then when he survived all that and he finally got to marry the woman he loved he was mauled to death by mutts in a sewer and none of his friends even tried to save him so now he will never get to see the son he didn’t even know he was going to have.
if you had a really terrible phase where you were an offensive little asshole but you know better now i wanna let you know that i’m proud you were able to pull yourself out of that because some people just don’t know when to grow the fuck up but you did
if you’re a grown ass man and you look at a sixteen year old girl as anything but a child the problem is with you, not with what she’s wearing
nothing will fuck you up as much as the realization that there’s no real reason the alphabet needs to be in order
