hey guys if someone ever misgenders me on a post of does something rude or whatever, please DO NOT send them a bunch of hate mail for it?? i can deal with it myself and there’s no point in making someone feel bad, especially since they have probably already messaged me privately apologizing. just as a general rule of thumb, don’t send hate mail at all, okay?

Hi all!

I have this general rule that “unsolicited advice is ALWAYS bad advice”. This applies to… everything, really. 

When someone comes to me and asks me a question and I answer it, I have generally tried to give a thoughtful answer. If I cannot I ASK for my followers to assist me in helping the person who asked the question. 

If I have not ASKED for your advice.. it’s bad advice. And if someone comes to MY blog and asks for MY advice, and you offer YOUR advice… it’s bad advice. 

See, there are certain things that I may have considered when the person asked me a question… because they are a follower of MY blog… that perhaps you wouldn’t have considered. For example, if someone tells me they can’t find shirts long enough for them and need help I will likely assume they are asking ME this because *they are fat*. And my personal experiences tells me that shopping at thrift stores and second hand stores are tedious and upsetting a LOT of the time when you are fat and just want a fucking shirt to fit you. 

So, see… I make a choice to not include that. 

Many of us have our own values and personal agendas that we inherently push on our own blogs. I 100% support everyone using their blog space to do so. 

I am a proud supporter of “staying in your lane”. 

Please also note that being rude or an asshole does not equate to being offensive or harmful. I don’t expect for people to let me get away with being harmful or offensive, ever. I support call out culture, and love it. I just also support asking yourself if you opinion is truly necessary and valuable to a conversation!

Closed Starter for Shinobi-Shaw
Closed Starter for shinobi-shaw

There were parties, and then there were parties— and it was a general rule of thumb on campus that Shinobi threw all the best parties. It didn’t exactly correlate with popularity, oh everyone turned up, but it’s in peoples nature to use and abuse. Malcolm had no real opinion on Shinobi, he’d seen him, swigging from bottles, hitting shots and showing an impressive ability to hold his drink like a seasoned sailor, but conversation hadn’t been something he’d bothered with. He was like anyone else, he turned up for a party, stayed and left whenever the notion took him— tonight wasn’t any different. He thought.

Half way through the night, (there’d only been one smashed table and three broken vases, an improvement on the last party), Malcolm had the distinct feeling he was being watched. The tingle at the back of the neck when your hairs prickle, the uneasy feeling with every movement you make— and a quick glance around the room confirmed it. His gaze locked with none other than the parties flamboyant (and probably pissed) host, so he offered raised brows and a shake of the head that just said ‘what he fuck is it?’ in response. 

Jack Daniels always made him tetchy.

I loooove babies…I love em…they’re the cutest lil things ..I love kids in general I want to just rule over all of them

Sam, I honestly have much respect for your wisdom, but I can't help feeling like you're a bit old fashioned in your thinking sometimes. For example the case of not being able to be friends if there are no sexual feelings. I mean let's be honest in most cases yes teenagers and even adults can be REALLY swayed by sex and things get messed up a lot of the time. But also from my own experience it doesn't have to be the case. Maybe it's because me and my friends are pretty open about sex. (1/3)

Yes, old fashioned. My friend love and sex have not changed any in the past century. My wisdom as you put it comes not from a book but from half a century of experience with people. If you disagree that is okay. Take my advice or “wisdom” or do not take it. It matters not to me. After all most general rules have their exceptions; however, logic teaches us that an exception does not disprove the rule. So, do as you will.

as a general rule all conductors are weird af. have you ever had a normal conductor? no, there’s always something off about them or they wouldn’t have became a conductor

I have a bi lip headcanon that Fiona is the last to know about him being bi and she thinks shes one the first to figure it out and then debbie and carl both say something about it and she's like floored by the fact she was the last to know

o m g I LOOOOOVE THIIIIIIIIS. i love it. i love it

what if there’s a general rule among the younger gallagher sibs like “okay guys we all know that fiona’s the last to know about this thing but we’re gonna make her feel like she’s the first to know because she is fiona and we love her and we know she likes to feel in charge annnnnd break” and they’ve been doing it so well for years but they finally slip up with this

maybe fiona figures it out for herself just like she did with ian and it’s this secret she’s been happy to keep until lip wants to tell her himself but then debs makes some seemingly innocent offhand comment about lip bringing a boy home and her HEAD SNAPS UP and they all freeze and there’s an impromptu family meeting about it

“i thought i was THE ONLY ONE WHO KNEW,” fiona says incredulously, her eyes wide and her arms akimbo, staring at all of them. her siblings all look back and forth between each other and she realizes that not only is she not the first to know she is the last to know and she mentally reenacts the I AM NOT A MOM scene from broad city because oh my god that’s what kids do to their moms while they all stumble over each other to apologize. for months after she doesn’t let any of them live it down, whenever one of them tells her something she’s like “OH SO WHERE DO I RANK IN THE KNOWING ORDER THIS TIME”
