Wow this post is much, much longer than I expected it to be but that’s okay I really needed to say thank you to these amazing writers for these fics. They’re all so fantastic.

May everyone have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!

Please bear in mind that I have literally 40+ tabs open on my phone of unread fics, as well as a bunch of bookmarks, many of which include The Big Ones so if there’re some missing that you think should be on here, that’s the dealio.

there is nothing in this world more infuriating than how queerbaiting shows try to (and often succeed in) pitting queer fans who support slash ships against female fans who support the female character who is in a romantic relationship with one of the queerbaited male characters

there is NO REASON on earth that the two men cannot be together AND the female character in question be significant and have character development AND YET the shows almost always set up the story so that it’s one or the other, leaving fans to try to pick which one they feel more strongly about (particularly queer female fans, who deserve better)

and let me make it clear, i’m not dragging fandom for this, i’m dragging the shows. i think this is a conscience choice by many shows in order to create infighting in the fandom so that the fandom is too busy to drag the show for being a) sexist and b) homophobic

Okay I had a rant that I need to get out and I’ll warn you now if you love Damon you probably won’t want to read this, but I feel the need to say this because of all the hate Caroline and Klaroliners get. Many people are offended and outraged that a relationship can be contemplated between Klaus Mikaelson and Caroline Forbes, Many of whom are also Damon stans and Delena shippers. There is also the fact that there is a clear double-standard when it comes to the Mystic Falls Gang’s feelings towards the immortal hybrid and their lax attitude towards Damon’s past behavior, none of which he has apologized for. Lets have a tally: Klaus’ crimes towards the people of Mystic Falls and Damon, centering around the ‘Dream Team’ (Stefan, Matt, Bonnie, Elena, Tyler, Caroline, Jeremy, and Alaric) *I’ll put the name of the MF gang member they hurt through their actions in brackets:

Klaus: 

1. Killed Jenna Summers in breaking his curse [Elena, Jeremy], 

2. Killed Elena Gilbert to break curse (she didn’t actually die)[all temporarily], 

3. (or is it 3-15?) Killed the Twelve Hybrids [Tyler], 

4. Killed Carol Lockwood [Tyler, Town], 

5-6. Caused Caroline to be bitten/bit her but fixed it both times [Caroline, Tyler], 

7. Kidnapped? Stefan [Most], 

8. Tried to drain Elena [All]  

Okay yeah we get it he’s a villain, I would never try to claim otherwise I’m just pissed that he gets called a monster while at same time Damon gets called a hero. I know Klaus is a little monstrous, that is part of his character and without it he wouldn’t be the dangerous all-powerful hybrid that most of us love, I just think that they shouldn’t (Fans and characters) have let Damon get of scott-free in comparison.

Damon:

1. Tried to force Elena to kiss him through compulsion knowing she was with Stefan [Stefan, Elena]

2. Kill Coach Tanner, Stefan felt guilty so [Town, Stefan]

3-4. Turn Vicky for his amusement, then killed her [Matt, Jeremy, Elena by extension]

5. Kill Logan Fell (when he was human) [Jenna and by extent Elena]

6-7. Attempt to kill by sunlight/ succeed in killing through staking Stefans best friend for decades Lexi [Stefan, sort of Elena]

8. Kill a random guy to lead to Lexi’s death [Lexi (cuz, ya she died), Town]

9-IDK. Spent 150 years making Stefan miserable [Stefan]

10. Abuse, Manipulate, Belittle, Feed on and Rape Caroline (Befriending her mother either at the same time or not long after) [Caroline, and it should have made everyone else angry too but that didn’t happen]

11-12. Attempting to kill Caroline Twice [Caroline, and apparently no body else] 

11. Kill Jeremy without knowledge of the Gilbert ring [Elena, Jeremy]

12. Kill Alaric multiple times (this first time not knowing he’d come back) [Alaric, Jenna, Elena, Jeremy]

13. Taunted Alaric with how he supposedly killed his wife Isobel, who happened to be Elena’s birth mother (and was ultimately the one who turned her) [Alaric, Elena, and by extension Stefan]

14. Killed Mayor Lockwood (even though he could have saved him) [Tyler, Town]

15. Attempting to kill Bonnie [Bonnie, Elena]

16. Tortured and Killed Mason Lockwood [Tyler]

17. His abusive relationship with Andie Star [no one really seemed to care about that?]

18. Turning Abby Bennett Wilson [Bonnie]

19. Using the sire bond to control Elena [Elena, Stefan, others]

20. Untimely being the one to Kill Tyler Lockwood [Tyler, Caroline]

21. Repeatedly Slaughter the new generation of Whitmores [???, but it felt important]


I’m sure I missed some for both of them, and if you feel the need to add to either go right ahead, just be civil about it; we are supposedly “evolved” or something.

🍭🎶✏🍭🍵🍯🎶🍭

Please have patience with me
As I use my writing
And sip peppermint tea
To clear away my fear
Of things unsettled in me.

I was bottled up tight
Habits of a li'l girl
Afraid to cause a fight
Yelling would get too loud
Which brought me no delight

A knot began to grow
Holding in many things
‘Til a doctor said, “No,
You must share all those thoughts,
Let go of that cargo.”

Please have patience with me
As I am still learning
How to let things fly free

Correct me if I'm wrong, but have we ever seen stiles cross over mountain ash? 'Cause I feel like we have only seen him be on one side, but I might be wrong.

Actually he has crossed it, in 2x08 Raving. But that is the only time he’s done it and he hasn’t been around mountain ash since.

Just for kicks let’s run through our mountain ash encounters. It might be good to have for reference.

Mystique, Nightcrawler, and the importance of Quicksilver

About X-Men: Apocalypse.

I need Mystique to be Nightcrawler’s mother. Desperately so.

It just adds so many layers to her performance in the last two movies and I swear it’s hinted at in Apocalypse and Quicksilver is a big part of that.

My ship is Sans x Jerry…wait, HOW OLD IS JERRY ANYWAY???? D:

Ok, let me answer seriously though. I think what you’re referring to is the UT Mob story I have which depicts many moments between child Frisk and the skeleton brothers. My story centers around the relationship between these unlikely trios; how they form, how they’re tested, and how deeper it can become. Because I wanted to focus solely on their relationship to its purest sense with no romantic tensions in the way, I chose Frisk to be a child.

What I’m saying is I have zero intentions to show any sexual undertones in any of my comics. Frisk is just a kid, and the skelebros are taking care of a kid.

Despite my intentions, if you still feel uncomfortable with what I draw…well, I don’t know how I can help you my friend. :/

(I changed you to anonymous on purpose. Hope you don’t mind.)

I found solace in my friendships with other gay Latinos, men like me who loved their families but who were estranged from them, men who still craved the flavors and music of home — a nostalgia for comforts that managed, if only for a few minutes, to assuage the pain of separation, of distance. But most importantly, perhaps our strongest bond to our homelands was our language. What a relief to communicate in Spanish, perhaps a chance encounter with the slang or lilt or speech of our towns. For many of us, our first tongue. For many of us, the words through which we first expressed love and fear and sadness and joy. And to have those words while inhabiting our queer bodies felt just right.


The club. Let me be clear about something I’ve learned as a gay Latino: No place is entirely safe, no building is a sanctuary. I have encountered violence and prejudice, or at the very least exclusion, in every social space. Like home, like school, the gay club was another complicated network of human interactions. It was not always pretty, it was far from perfect, but it felt necessary because my queerness was necessary, because my body hungered for attention, for the pleasures of movement on the dance floor where I was in close proximity to the other bodies I desired.

Europe thoughts!

i’ve finally logged onto tumblr and found a few dozen positive messages wishing us fun in Europe. that’s so awesome (and to be perfectly honest, unexpected.)

just wanted to give everyone a personal update on the trip and let people know how appreciative i am of being able to go on trips like these. i realize a lot of viewers have never been to any of the places we’re visiting, and may never get the chance to go, but i hope we’re offering a large enough window through which you can vicariously live.

to clear up any confusion, i hope people understand that this trip was not funded by us. we couldn’t afford a trip of this scale without seriously saving for a while. many people tend to think that every YouTuber is rolling in money - let me assure you that we are NOT one of those YouTubers, though chances are you watch many of them. maybe we’ll get there one day, but until then, i’m definitely content with where we are. :)

i plan on writing a blog post about the trip linking all the videos once it’s all said and done to offer my thoughts i probably didn’t convey well enough in the videos. this trip in particular has blown my mind in more way than one, and i need to do it justice.

anyway, just wanted to thank everyone for continuing to watch the vlogs! last time we traveled abroad our channel took a serious hit with the views which made us nervous this time around, but i think the interest has definitely been there. here’s the latest video in case you’d like to check it out!

thanks! love you guys.

SU Theory: Whatever happened to Pink Diamond?

I don’t believe that there is the slightest chance that Rose Quartz is PD for a bunch of reasons, most of which you are tired of reading about (Her size, Her gem cut, etc etc) But for me the most clear piece of evidence is this image:                                            

LOOK CLOSELY, IT WAS DANGLING IN FRONT OF OUR EYES THIS WHOLE TIME, LOOK! CLEARLY YOU HAVE ROSE FUCKING QUARTZ WITH HER OWN BELLY GEM HOLDING A PINK FUCKING DIAMOND. 


Let’s think about it, how would Rose Quartz, A quartz among many,  go toe to toe against a Diamond? She used Pink Diamond’s Gem as some kind of Power Up or weapon so she could win. What happened to Pink Diamond? How did Rose get her Gem? Well, We all know she did some shady stuff.                          

At some point between gems first settled on earth and built the first buildings 

And the events in The Answer something happened to Pink Diamond. I support this chronology with this:                                                                                                                                        it must have been after the settlement on earth because:                                               

why would you build all structures with the old symbol if PD was already missing/poofed/etc by then? 

now it also must have happened before the answer because:

in The Answer every gem silhouette is either a shade of Red/Pink or Blue. (note many of the pink colored gems have the same gem placement as Rose Quartz) Why are these pink gems under Blue Diamond? That makes me think that something happened to PD and her underlings were distributed between the remaining diamonds.

Now I have a conjecture that maybe Earth was originally PD’s colony and after whatever happened to her happened the colony was assumed by BD.

BUT WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO PINK DIAMOND???

ONLY ROSE KNOWS 

anonymous asked:

Racism means to discriminate against someone because of their race and apply characteristics to someone because of their race. POC can be racist to white people. You can’t redefine a word so that you are always the victim and never the contributor. I think you are spreading anger and hatred and I think this is a very dangerous site. You are encouraging a victimised, anti-police, anti-whites mindset in people. You are encouraging black people to see everyone else as the enemy.

I’m going to have to make this an FAQ, because this gets manipulated in so many ways. People think this is a “hate site” or “hate blog” when in reality, nothing I promote is “hate”. This is a common mistake because people mistake “racism” for “hate” by simply talking about it. So, let’s clear this up (sadly, not “once and for all” because people will likely skip this).

You’re describing “prejudice”, which I don’t advocate for at all. I never say “go outside, break the law, kill white people and blame the police” and I don’t use simple arguments like this. 

The reason I am saying “racism” and talking about it is very, very simple… there’s a real problem with race as far as systemic racism and it goes unchecked. It influences all facets of life, even before a Black child takes their first breath of fresh air with their own name.

Speaking about racism isn’t about “hatred”. Being aware of racism isn’t “hatred”. But just saying “racism means discrimination” oversimplifies the matter. 

  • Are there Black people who hate White people to the point that they will kill them? Yes. 
  • Are there Black people will never trust White people? Yes. 
  • Do I want Black people to murder White people? No. 
  • Do I want Black people to work with White people? Yes… with conditions. (This “conditions” part is too deep to go into on this one post, so I’ll skip it. However, one thing is simply leave us the hell alone when we want to create spaces for ourselves.)  

You have to FULLY understand where this “hate” and mistrust is coming from, which is from CENTURIES of oppression. Not years or months or even weeks. This “hatred” didn’t happen in a vacuum. Even when Black people in America tries to make their own communities and opportunities, they are either taken away or have to modify themselves to make it “less threaten” to other people.

So, when I talk about racism in this way, it’s not a “redefinition”. You may think it is because you’re using one dictionary definition, but in reality, it’s only part of the meaning of a word and not all dictionaries can agree on that word.

The reason why I emphasise racism as “prejudice + power” is because it forces people to accept that there’s more than “hatred”. There’s simply not knowing. 

Being unknowingly racist doesn’t make you a bad person, just like reading a sentence and not realizing that it’s sexist doesn’t mean you’re totally sexist. There are cases where racism is being displayed RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU, but you won’t notice it because it’s ingrained in society to the point that it’s just normal. 

Let’s break other two other points:

victimised

There’s a difference between not getting what you want or need in life because it’s just not in the cards for you versus “we were not thinking of you in the first place.” I want equality in every aspect of life. But the system wasn’t design to give us that equality. 

Here’s an example: There are Black people creating web apps and web businesses. There are always East Indians doing the same. But East Indians decided that in order to promote to a “mainstream audience”, they will hire a White front man. This isn’t something I made up, this is an ACTUAL thing. (Check out Black in America 4)

How are we suppose to stand for ourselves when we’re being judged by the color of our skin? 

anti-police

Yes, I am anti-police. However, I am not anti-law enforcement. 

Re-read that sentence. 

How can I be that? Simple… the police system in this country was developed to control the behavior of minorities. (source) With those beginnings, it’s hard to separate them from law enforcement.

Do I know what “law enforcement” looks like? No. But I do know that the way police are portrayed on TV the majority of the time doesn’t reflect the actual way they work. Believe it or not, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is more fiction than reality. (source

The police are corrected government officials that are interested in serving the few. They have quotas (source), they are not trained to be racial aware (source) and think they are above the law (source).

I like the televised idea of police work where they handle cases and get justice, but the reality rarely reflects the fiction. And if a cop does anything wrong, they don’t get checked. 

- - - 

There are two worlds we’re living in: the world you think we’re in and the actual one. When I use the word “racism” and you want me to stop talking about it, what you REALLY want is for me to stop talking about world I’m living in and keep up with the fantasy that you’re living in.

Well, in that case… WAKE UP!
