Satsuki wanting to put her fascist dictator of a thunderdome phase behind her and be an approachable person people feel comfortable around (like Mako, she's respects that a lot in Mako) with her Elite Friends there to help every step of the way :D
ok first i’m going to gush a little about why mako and satsuki’s friendship is SO IMPORTANT.
mako goes the furthest in helping satsuki feel welcome by simply treating her like everyone else. mako steals her fries when they take satsuki to a diner (everyone is stunned). mako offers satsuki a bite of her crepe and satsuki is extremely flattered because mako never shares her food. mako asks for sips of her drinks and offers in return. she falls asleep leaning on satsuki on the train and convinces her to try on clothes satsuki wouldn’t have thought to try on, and some clothes just for the fun of it! she braids satsuki’s hair and weaves flowers into it and says satsuki looks like a princess.
and satsuki awkwardly tries to reciprocate mako’s genuine kindness. satsuki orders too much food at a restaurant bc mako said she wanted to try it all. she tries (and ultimately fails) to teach mako how to walk in heels. she tries out slang that she’d never have tried before. she asks mako what the secret is and mako is stunned because she never thought about it- mako, who was canonically ostracized and bullied and left out and didn’t have friends until she met ryuko, doesn’t understand what she means. she just treasures the friends she has, because they’re an extended part of her family, and she treats them like family.
satsuki, who never got to have a real, biological family until she met ryuko, tries to understand, and mimics mako. satsuki’s family is the ryuko and mako and the elite four and shiro and soroi. satsuki makes a dirty joke and the other elites and shiro try their very best not to laugh, but uzu lets a snort out and then they’re all losing their shit. she shares her tea and soroi hurries to say he’ll make more, but satsuki tells him to relax. satsuki letting her guard down and the elites are confused but they try to help her unwind. nonon helping satsuki pick out outfits. uzu sparring with her. houka teaching satsuki how to use social media properly (she likes to write literal essays. twitter helps her keep things brief and casual). ira takes the longest to unwind around her (he has a real stick up his ass about respecting/idolizing satsuki), but one day he makes a joke at her expense, and she laughs and tells him to relax before he can panic.
more than anything i need the entire klk cast to be happy post-series. i want satsuki to learn how to be a person.
when people start getting close to your friends
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
Researcher Benjamin Radford says he’s traced the mystery of the chupacabra myth back to a housewife in Puerto Rico. She claims that before she saw the “creature,” she watched a film with very similar-looking monsters. She reported her story to the media in 1995, and the legend began. Source
There’s thousands of notes on posts about how unfair it is that there isn’t a wonder woman movie and now that its been officially announced nobody is talking about it?
Like Can I get at least a hell yeah?
I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.
This is groundbreaking

I watched this episode on 4od last night. I HAD SNOT BUBBLES COMING OUT OF MY NOSE, and I looked like a blooming panda after this scene…
