who is the beautiful gentleman in your icon?

It’s Jack Laskey as DS Peter Jakes in Endeavour. 

I’d suggest you save yourself now, but I suppose the second you asked that question it was already too late lolol idk if you’re into Sherlock Holmes at all, but in case you’ve seen A Game of Shadows; he plays Mycroft’s boy toy manservant Carruthers (and sports a fabulous moustache as well):

so are you saying TIG not including a sex scene is cowardly and discriminatory

No; God no. It’s perfectly fine to not include sex scenes. I’m saying it’s cowardly to not include a gay sex scene just because you want to keep it subtle.

I’m not sure how to explain the difference? Like, of course I don’t need to see sex scenes in films. It’s perfectly alright to just imply things and be done with it. What bugged me was the reasoning of ‘you don’t need to see him having sex to know he is gay’. Of course you don’t. We already know he’s gay and as far as I know, they’re not being particularly subtle about that in the film, either. But we don’t need to see straight sex scenes in films to know they’re straight, either. If sex scenes were just about understanding a character’s sexuality we wouldn’t need to show them in any film ever because a) most of the people on screen are straight anyway, and b) there are other ways to go about showing a person’s sexual preferences.

Hi!! I see you're a Pratchett fan and I was wondering, which is your favourite then? ^^ I've only read Good Omens so far (which isn't even an "only Pratchett" book) so yeah, if you have a recommendation, I'd love to hear it :D Hope you're having a nice day, byyyye

Oh gosh it’s been so long that I read them, but I’d definitely, definitely recommend everything with Sam Vimes in it (especially Night Watch). Also Mort and the Tiffany Aching books (starting with The Wee Free Men) - or rather, basically everything with the Witches, and ehm … everything with Rincewind too (although tbh I prefer the later to the earlier ones, idek why exactly).

Actually, no, this is too hard, every single book has something that makes it brilliant and special, so I couldn’t just pick a few of them to recommend. The good thing is that it mostly doesn’t matter where you start, though. Just pick one and see where it leads you.

haha omg don’t remind me. i was shaking so bad. anyway, i like your reply a lot. ♥

blblbl does that mean we were off to a shaky start? (lolol nahh just regular crêping procedures)

OMG MY DASH DIDN'T SHOW YOUR ANSWER AND I WAS SAD CAUSE I THOUGHT TUMBLR ATE MY ASK! Thank you so much *crying* I don't mind whether this is public or private :') The thing is, i want to know how do you know that you love someone, apart from family that it. i know it sounds weird but i just *scratch head*

haha no worries :’)

but uhm, phew. How do you know you love someone … I really am by no means an expert on this and idk I’m mostly as clueless as you are, but I guess it’s not really something you know but something you feel? Like, (unfortunately) there is no step-by-step guide or a sort of measurement unit you could put to it to find out. And it probably also comes down to what you personally think love actually means. For you. Because it’s such an abstract term, isn’t it? And we read about it all the time and movies and TV shows are so full of it that it somehow seems to be something tangible and everyone seems to know so confidently what it feels like. I don’t think that’s the case, though. You may have the full butterfly experience with heart racing and whatnot, but you also may not. It’s positively confusing and most importantly, it’s something quite … intuitive, which means it’s probably different for everyone.

So in the end I think you have to listen closely to yourself and trust your own feelings. I know that’s one of the hardest things there is, but there really is no way around it. Listen to your instincts, it’s about your feelings so they’re probably right. Don’t think about what others may expect you to feel or what you think you’re supposed to feel, try to shut all of that out for a second. It could help to look at your love for your friends and family (and maybe even pets if you have any)? What do you feel for them? How do you think love in romantic terms would be different from that? Is it different? And what would it mean if you do love someone? Would that make you feel scared? Happy? Is there anything holding you back?

I realise this is basically a non-answer lmao I’m so sorry, my inner philosopher always throws out more questions than answers. Anyway, for me love is mostly a feeling of … closeness, I think. Not just physically, I mean more emotionally. A good indicator is when I keep thinking about them while I’m doing the most mundane things. Like, I’d do the dishes (ahaha yeah right) or wait for the bus or weigh potatoes in the supermarket and suddenly I’d catch myself smiling because oh! there they are in my thoughts. Or that I can’t wait to see them, talk to them, or when something funny/sad/exciting happens and the thought of telling them about it is almost better than the thing itself … or in case it’s something sad I want to tell them because I know it’ll make me feel better afterwards. It’s mostly just a lot of little things, really. When I feel comfortable being around them, when I can laugh with them, when I want to be close to them and do all the borderline creepy things like listen to them breathing and watch them while they’re concentrating on something. But there is also an actual warm feeling of sorts, it fills my chest and tingles down into my stomach sometimes … I can’t explain it, you’ll know when (if) you feel it.

My icon would totally let your new icon rearrange his priceless antique furniture (I originally wanted to write 'touch his buddha' but that's just wrong).

ohohoo I’ll have you know that my icon is totally looking forward to touching your icon’s buddha~ *wiggles eyebrows suggestively* and there may be some rearranging of furniture in the process as well.
