[send me a character and I’ll tell you who I ship them with]

Harry Sullivan and Sarah Jane Smith are my OTP

casually gives links for a lovely blog dedicated for this ship and a music video playlist I put together instead of posting all the pictures I can find cos why not. Plus, my inbox won’t allow me to do so.

Although, when I started reading Harry Sullivan’s War, I somewhat shipped him with his sort-of-girlfriend, Ester Bland.

I’m also a bit indifferent with him being with Martha Jones? The few fics I’ve found that paired them together weren’t too bad~

The next time I am met with a demand for “evidence” when I report incidents of harm as a result of oppression, this is going to be my script: “I am giving you evidence in the form of my lived experience. In so doing, I am asking you to care. About me and about the other people to whom these things are also done. If you care, you will listen. If you don’t, I am politely requesting you be honest enough to simply say that you do not care, instead of obliging me to engage with you in a mendacious argument designed to publicly justify why you won’t.”

Idk, I just have this headcanon that Rei always tries to wow Nagisa with how smart and cool he is (which is pretty much canon tbh) and Nagisa just eats it up. Like on a date Rei will make a huge show of opening the door with added shoujo sparkles and stuff and Nagisa will think it's the most romantic thing ever. They just need to kiss okay.

Seriously this is 1,000% canon and one of my favorite parts of their relationship because nothing is love than seeing how much of a loser someone is and for some reason thinking that they’re so cool for it. 

Nagisa eats up Rei’s crap like he’s the coolest person on the planet I mean for God’s sake who else could gawk at Rei in these nasty trunks?

image

The way he looks at ridiculous Rei kills me

image

He thinks he is so awesome even though he’s so embarrassing it’s often painful to watch. But Nagisa could watch him and listen to him all day. 

image

For God’s sake he convinced Rei to be a detective and while he ran around like an idiot Nagisa envisioned him like this

image

He has it so bad and it’s positively adorable. He’s a sucker for Rei and will fall for his dorky crap every time. And thank God, because Rei depends on it.

Twitter user “Bruh,” who goes by the handle @TheePharoah posted on August 9, “I JUST SAW SOMEONE DIE OMFG,” followed by a gruesome photo he snapped with his phone of Brown lying face down in the street with two officers standing over his body, just two minutes after his initial tweet.

"Proof": You keep using that word; I don't think it means what you think it means

amber-and-mercury replied to your post: Anyone else seeing what I’m seeing her…

wtf at people freaking about Socrates. The only evidence we have of him is Plato said he existed. That’s it, that’s all there is. But the point isn’t “he didn’t exist”, it’s that he mattered. Just like Xiang Fei can matter, -should- matter.

I shouldn’t be surprised that people are flipping out about that, but…well, they are, and I am a little surprised. I think it was covered in at least three different classes required for my degree.

Then again, this is consistently why people have a problem with medievalpoc specifically and history in general-there is this expectation that there is “THE TRUTH” to be found and doled out like manna from heaven.

Whether or not Socrates actually existed as a person doesn’t actually matter at all. You’re still going to have to read and probably write about him at some point. I actually wrote a fairly entertaining Socratic dialogue years ago between Dido and Socrates in the underworld entitled “What Is Love? (Baby Don’t Hurt Me)”. Anyhow.

The problem is that people see a painting of Xiang Fei and demand some kind of incontrovertible “proof” that she ~actually existed~, while at the same time having no understanding that this is not how history works. Or anything, really.

I think my most fervent wish is that people would stop using the word “proof” entirely, especially folks who claim to be from the hard sciences.

So, when I get replies and messages this like one:

I keep on saying that what people are demanding doesn’t actually exist, and yet them demands do not cease.

The only thing I could *conceivably* be said to have proven is that Europeans created images of people of color.

This is really about why it matters.

UGH REI YOU MAKE ME WANT TO PUKE YOU'RE SO IN LOVE. Like, when he blushes and looks away, I feel like those were the times he was suddenly conscious, suddenly aware of how "oh! i'm... telling him very romantic things." But when he's not, when he just looks at Nagisa like he's the whole world. HE ALWAYS DOES THAT ANNOYING SMILE, THE ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE HE'S HAPPY AND CONTENT or the other one WHERE HE'S JUST SO AMAZED. god GET A ROOM /cries forever

There are so many different ways he looks at Nagisa and it is all so precious!

Like he is falling in love but can’t admit it

image

Like Nagisa is a precious angel that was made just for him

image

Like he can’t handle Nagisa’s cuteness

image

Like he always want to be by his side

image

Like he never wants to disappoint his sweet Nagisa

image

Like he’s trying to resist Nagisa’s charms

image

Like he would die if he lost him

image

And like Nagisa’s smile is the best thing in the world

Facts:

  1. The heights match Harry and Louis.
  2. The gaits, at least as photographed, match Harry and Louis
  3. Backstage before the show, Harry and Louis were wearing clothes that match the clothes in that photo (and yes, plenty of t-shirts have designs on the back as well as the front).
  4. There’s someone behind them that could be security, as there likely would have been for band members.
  5. lornasaurusrex reported that the section of the stadium that could have seen those people walking screamed at one point before the show. Even if the photo is poor quality, the people who were there likely would have been able to tell who it was through body language, clothes, etc. (There are a number of people they might have screamed for, but I’m trying to figure out who on that list could pass as Harry and Louis when photographed from a distance.)

Is it still possible that it’s not Harry and Louis? Absolutely. 

But to start at the conclusion that there’s no way they would have been walking together like that in full view of all those people, and skip over the fact that literally every other piece of evidence suggests that it was or certainly could have been them is not a useful way to evaluate things.
