"Skinny" girls be cosplaying Rose and Amethyst and are saying "Don't hate us for our size! Anyone can cosplay anything!" But as soon as a plus size person cosplays a "skinny" character they say.. "Everyone should cosplay their body types?!" thoughts?

Yeahhhhhhhh I haven’t said anything about all this because it’s exhausting to have to read about. But here’s how I feel - 
Plus size cosplayers get so. much. shit. I am constantly fighting to be noticed and then I have to fight to not be mocked. Any time I cosplay a character that is not specifically fat I’m told I’m “ruining that game/show/character”. It can be brutal if you don’t have the support. And the thing is there are maybe a handful of fat characters to cosplay. Not just ones I’d want to cosplay - I mean in general there are SO FEW fat characters. Even when I do cosplay my body type I get laughed at.
Thin cosplayers are just “cosplayers”. They don’t have to be the fat version of something and aren’t constantly told they’re ruining someone’s favorite thing. They are the “standard”. And good god there are so many characters for them to choose from. When they choose a fat character to cosplay they get twice the recognition. Look at how many notes thin Rose Quartz cosplayers get. Now look at a fat Rose Quartz of the same caliber and it’s almost half the notes. That’s because even though Rose is canonically fat - people are shitty and prefer a thin version. So why do that as a thin person? Why take that small sliver of representation for yourself when you can pick literally ANY OTHER CHARACTER? Same goes for white folks cosplaying poc characters.
When fat people stop being ridiculed for cosplaying I’ll agree that anyone can cosplay anyone. Until then, leave fat characters alone plsssssssss for the love of god. Also, pretty much every post that disagrees is like “ugh stupid sjws” so that tells you everything you need to know.

Hey, I'm a guy (pan) and recently I've noticed hate from the feminist community that says men can't be feminists. I for one am very much a feminist despite my lack of a vagina. Please not my boyfriend is the same way. So what do you think?

Hi there!

Can men be feminists?

Short answer: Yes! EVERYONE can and SHOULD be feminists.

I believe that EVERYBODY ON EARTH should care about the oppression of other people due to their gender, and take action to stop it. That’s true whether you’re cis or trans, straight or LGBTQIA+, young or old, from all races, ethnicities and cultures. As Chimamanda Ngozi Adichiewrites, “We Should All Be Feminists

Longer answer: Read Me!

I updated my Bruce/Nat Fics page with my three newest fic. If you haven’t read them you should check them out. You should also check out my other fics cause they’re pretty awesome too. All 25 can be found here. Happy reading :) 

Note: I received a tone of post AoU fics and alternate endings for AoU so to make things easier on my and you all they can all be found under the AoU alternate endings link. The number in parentheses is the number of fics there. 

salamisatoe asked:

hi! is there any chance you could write an hp!korrasami fic? there's a serious lack in them... also im not sure if this is specific enough or not so apologies in advance! congrats on all the followers btw!

Here’s where the prompt post was!

Korra knew she should be paying attention to class, but she had the misfortune of sitting behind Asami Sato, the most beautiful girl she had ever seen. Tenzin was droning on and on about divination, a skill Korra thought was useless. But when it was time to pair off and read fortunes, Korra scrambled to Asami’s side.
“Want to partner up?” she asked, a little breathless.

"The boobs hanging out at the Oscars last year did it for me" *CRACK* THANK YOU LORD YISS AT LEAST!!!! I've been waiting a year and a half to finally read someone sayint it!! Thank you!! gOD! I feel I can breath again!

Oh god we all were talking about it on Twitter at the time. SO inappropriate for the occasion and her role imo. Some people got their knickers in a twist saying we were being ageist or whatever and that she should wear what she wants. And I usually am all for anyone wearing whatever the fuck they want. But it would have looked weirdly unprofessional on someone younger too. It was odd enough that she was even there as his guest. She doesn’t seem to get the background thing that other publicists do, but at least she could dress classier if she’s going to be in every damn shot, reflecting on him. (And since I’m being catty anyway, she could brush her hair now and then too.)

I feel I should tell you all, Tumblr gave me some pretty fuckin’ weird assumptions about The Secret History because I actually read The Secret History. And it’s all really funny to me now, so here’s a list of Shit Cat-From-September thought was 100% fact about tsh

  • It was set in 1868
  • They were all in New England, but they were natively British
  • Charles was a jolly, gay ginger who was married to Camilla and didn’t want his wife to know he’s gay
  • Charles was dating Henry. Or maybe Bunny. Or both.
  • It was a fantasy book, and they all acquired magical powers at the price of a sacrifice to Dionysus
  • The person they sacrificed was Bunny
  • Henry Winter was a metaphor for God??
  • Richard was in his mid-forties. I didn’t know why he was still in college
  • Francis was Actually A Prince
  • Bunny died during an orgy.
  • They were all serial killers, like at least 10 people died

But yeah, I’m not sure what happened, but this was what I pieced together from Tumblr edits before reading the book and now I’m like lmaoooo why

Hello, old friend, and here we are. You and me, on the last page. By the time you read these words, Rory and I will be long gone. So know that we lived well, and were very happy. And above all else, know that we will love you, always. Sometimes I do worry about you, though. I think once we’re gone, ‘you won’t be coming back here for a while, and you might be alone, which you should never be. Don’t be alone, Doctor. And do one more thing for me. There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she’s patient, the days are coming that she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to sea and fight pirates. She’ll fall in love with a man who’ll wait two-thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she’ll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived and save a whale in outer space. Tell her this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends.

anonymous asked:

Could you recommend some Ruby/Sapphire fics?

you came to the right place, omg. sorry for not answering immediately, all of my school stuff is literally due this friday so i’ve been pretty busy. i should actually be working on that rn, a…. ha

ok so ! i’ve honestly probably read every ruby/sapphire fic on both ao3 and ffn and loved them all b/c i;m gay but, i’ll try to narrow the list down to my very favorites ?

(favorite titles are bolded)

on ao3:

  • unyeilding resonance - just got published yesterday, but it holds a lot of promise and im really looking forward to it? the characterizations are nice so far. no warnings as of yet. pre-canon. ongoing.
  • i do - also has promise, but it’s only one chapter in! no warnings as of yet, except for maybe bullying. pre-canon. ongoing.
  • the edge of the abyss - not strictly a ruby/sapphire fic, but still very good. i love the writing style and the multiple perspectives that it uses, and im a sucker for pre-canon fics. discusses war + trauma. pre-canon. finished multi-chapter.
  • honesty is - a series of vaguely interrelated one-shots, mostly having to do with episodes! entirely ruby/sapphire, with some other stuff. it explores garnet in the context of multiplicity and plurality, which i  think is really special! ongoing.
  • five things - really cute, really gay. pretty much just a cute oneshot about kissing + pda, but im pretty sure it isn’t nsfw ! some pre-canon, but not a lot. ongoing.
  • i am a conversation (Fury and Patience) - didn’t particularly stand out to me, but it’s an interesting interpretation of the events leading up to the creation of garnet. oneshot.
  • the heaven and the earth - a very nice pre-canon fic about the war, detailing character interactions and relationship building. really sweet. the writing isn’t particularly special, but it’s still a really cute read and definitely more than worth it. finished multi-chapter.
  • but we’re better together - very cute, very gay. good writing, not all that poetic but has strong prose. pre-canon. oneshot.
  • where heaven and earth collide - probably my very favorite ruby / sapphire fic, because i love the way that sapphire is characterized and i love the way that the writing flows and makes the reader feel. definitely one of the inspirations for my own pre-canon fic. precanon. oneshot.
  • made of love - on how both ruby and sapphire felt during jailbreak. short, but very poetic. the words flow and the language isn’t too flowery, it’s very simple. oneshot / drabble.
  • dawning - i love this writing style. it’s very poetic and gives off a soft vibe which i really enjoyed! pre-canon. oneshot.
  • all the time - short and sweet, with a nice rhythm. very romantic, almost a confession but not quite. more like a realization. pre-canon. oneshot.
  • going two by two - ruby and sapphire take care of baby steven. very cute and ? nostalgic ? i love it. pre-canon. oneshot.
  • perfect fit - connie and steven discuss garnet. written from connie’s perspective. oneshot.
  • love overgrows a rock - really sweet, really nice, a favorite. pre-canon.

on ffn:

  • precious - sapphire protects ruby, ruby mourn’s over it. pre-canon. oneshot
  • melody - basically just a sweet little drabble thingy
  • complete - on how garnet became a permanent fusion. warnings for the use of ableist slurs at the end of the fic. oneshot.
  • together - a bittersweet oneshot on the birth of steven universe. oneshot.
  • how they met - a oneshot series featuring random ruby/sapphire scenarios. really fun! in-progress
  • i missed you - a pre-canon fic about baby steven and garnet ft. ruby/sapphire that was actually kind of written for me, which i thought was really cool. it’s really nice !

Part 3 How do you motivated yourself every day to keep going. What do you tell yourself? I feel purpose-less. Is it true that in terms of revision, i should try and do as MUCH as I can in one day. i don't know what to do? i cannot continue live thisBUT what are the first steps? hope this reaches you in good health, sis. Jazakallah

Salam Alaykum dear,

I’ve read all your messages and I feel you! Dw. I think we all went through this. Hmm I’m both lazy and perfectionist so it’s not easy sometimes lol. But I always make it through the day by praying my Salah actually it really helps me get rid of laziness subhan Allah. And feel free to make some to-do lists or something so you don’t waste time. Before going to bed, think about how you will spend your day, what will you do the next day and DO IT. Don’t procrastinate.

Pray tahajjud/fajr, don’t delay them! Make it a habit and you’ll be protected from the whispers and tricks of Shaytan.

The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said so:

Allah’s Apostle said, “Satan puts three knots at the back of the head of any of you if he is asleep. On every knot he reads and exhales the following words, ‘The night is long, so stay asleep.’ When one wakes up and remembers Allah, one knot is undone; and when one performs ablution, the second knot is undone, and when one prays the third knot is undone and one gets up energetic with a good heart in the morning; otherwise one gets up lazy and with a mischievous heart.”
Sahih Bukhari

Make Dhikr before going to sleep

“Fatimah complained to the Prophet (May peace be upon him) of the effect of the grinding stone on her hand. Then some slaves (prisoners of war) were brought to him.
So she went to him to ask for (one of) them, but she did not find him. She mentioned the matter to ‘A’ishah. When the prophet (May peace be upon him) came, she informed him.
He (the prophet) visited us (Ali) when we had gone to bed, and when we were about to get up, he said: stay where you are. He then came and sat down between us (her and me), and I felt the coldness of his feet on my chest.
He then said; “Let me guide to something better than what you have asked. When you go bed, say: Glory be to Allah” thirty-three times.”Praise be to Allah” thirty-three times, and “ Allah is most Great” thirty-four times. That will be better for you than a servant.”
Sunan Abu Dawud


Being married to Ali Ibn Abi Talib (RA), Fatimah (RA) the daughter of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had a lot of work to do. Another hadith stated that she had to do the following things on a regular basis:

So, when it became known that there were some prisoners of war who may be available as servants, she wanted to ask her father (pbuh) if she could have one. She (RA) could not find him so she passed the message on to Aisha (RA) the Prophet saws wife.

The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) came to her and Ali’s house after they had gone to bed. He advised her that he had something even better than a servant and taught her the dhikr mentioned above.

Go out sometimes to air out your body and mind. Exercise. Go for bike rides.
Don’t fall into the trap of Shaytan bc if you do so it will get worse and you’ll get that habit of not doing anything through the day.

May Allah make it easy for you and protect you from Shaytan. Amin xx

fuck-me-barnes replied to your post: Hawkeye Fandom

I tried to keep my vodka aunt “AND ANOTHER THING” yelling to a minimum in my response. ‘Course I hadn’t finished my coffee when I wrote it so it might have come off that way anyways…

I don’t follow Hawkeye, though everything from the Fraction run says I should, and I’m going to read that little bit if nothing else, but I basically came to feel like, after Hawkeye fans got shafted in Avengers, y’all got the Fraction run, and you got a glimpse of what could be, what should be, what you deserved-

And then AOU came. And I don’t blame a single one of you if you were sitting in the theater looking like Steven and Connie after Garnet hung up.

Celadon - Ivory White

Summary: Dan lives in a world of black and white, only to be brought to color when one is united with their one soulmate. But Dan found who’s supposed to be his soulmate… two years ago. So why is it that he’s finally seeing all the colors now, when he lays eyes on a boy he doesn’t know?

A/N: This is just a fluffy little chapter to advance the story a bit, like last time. A shoutout to holysmokesphan and her wonderful fic Color that you should really read as it has the same exact concept and it’s very very very good.

Genre: Soulmate au, angst, fluff, smut

Warnings: Swearing, suicidal themes, smut in later chapters, representation of homophobia

It’s been three days, and I’ve been expecting my parents to crack, to call me and tell me how worried they’ve been, how I need to come home right away and explain everything to them rationally, but all I’ve gotten is silence. Silent phone, silent door, and the constant looming knowledge that I can’t put explaining to them off forever.

In which Mira is a sap

I’m reading that gothic romance I picked up; it’s a little like Rebecca except she was the heroine’s sister and everyone hated her. Anyway, the heroine is bonding with her stepdaughter, and trying her best to say “I’m going to be nice to you and love you” without coming out and saying “Your mother was abusive, also abused me when we were little, I’m just doing what she should have done all along.”

It’s sentimental and a little emotionally manipulative, but heaven help me, the little girl is so stunned and grateful I started to cry. Actual tears. I’m crying right now.
