*norm

So I was just watching one of Kim & Brianna’s panels and it suddenly hit me as to why them as a duo and Wayward Daughters as a concept is so utterly phenomenal:

Here we have two incredibly strong women (both as characters and actors) but strong in different ways.

Kim/Jody is someone you look at and go “She’s a fucking badass.” She has no time for gender norms, she has sick tattoos, you’d believe she could kill you with her pinky finger. Yet she is so in touch with her emotions and isn’t afraid to show them. How many times have we seen Kim cry during a panel? A lot, and always for the right reasons. Physically, she is lean and muscular with “boy-cut” hair and generally wears not-particularly-feminine jeans and shirts.

Then we have Brianna/Donna. Someone who is the dictionary definition of sunshine and glitter. Her smile could melt Antarctica. She gets excited about something and bounces like Tigger while showering everyone around her in glitter and chocolate. But you know if she believes in something there’s no force on this earth that can stop her achieving whatever she wants. Physically, she is curvy with long blonde hair and looks the part of the sweet, small-town girl-next door, yet she completely owns her sexuality. I will never forget her bending over and wiggling her butt seductively at the camera in front of thousands of people. You go, Bri!!! :)

The most wonderful thing about this duo though, is the absolute equality between them. These are two very different women, but the bond they share and their love for the SPNFamily makes them two halves of a whole. There is absolutely no thought of “I’m the right kind of feminist because I’m…” they both go “You are you and I am me and that’s fantastic. Let’s change the world together!”

And to me THAT is the essence of what Wayward Daughters is. Accepting all women and saying “We are worth it. We’re going to stand up and make the world a better place, because we can.”

Everyone loves long hair. As a result: everyone looks the same. Our generation is creating a new way of being ourselves, detaching from those outdated norms that dictate what is rewarding and what everyone should look like. So many girls would be devastated, horrified if they had their hair cut, “Oh my God, I’m not pretty anymore!” But yes! You are! The acceptation of this ambiguous nature is changing really quick. People are seen as individuals more and more. It’s great when you think about it. People who aren’t allowing themselves to look like who they’d really want to be because they’re afraid of what people might think - they make me sad. - Kristen Stewart by Stefano Galuzzi for Marie Claire France (June 2016)

It might be a western capitalist thing, but sometimes we fixate too much on individual choice. It’s important to do what you can to survive as an individual, but at the end of the day whether you shave your legs or not will not end patriarchy–or even the fact the pressure for you and all women to shave their legs still exists. Instead of fixating on whether or not we should as individuals wear make up or if doing so is “feminist” we need to understand that all women feel the pressure to conform to gender norms and that the fact we can’t make these choices freely reflects injustice in our society.

Black Actresses Are the Norm in Nollywood – 12 Nigerian Actresses Who Are on the Big Screen
"The Nigerian film industry, dubbed as Nollywood, is the second largest film producer in the world to Bollywood. (Hollywood doesn’t even come close.) Films are produced by and mainly feature Nigerians making “black” actresses and actors the norm in Nigeria and across Africa."

I’m thinking about Seb’s Backstage interview and the fact that he references Marlene Dietrich as someone he, to quote the article, “marvels at,” and I’m just…yeah, thinking a lot about that. The reinvention of self, the drive, the glamour, the cabaret, the drag and bisexuality, the humanitarian and anti-Nazi work and the Medal of Freedom, the open defiance of established gender norms, the massive legacy both in terms of filmography and war efforts…

nightmares

REQUEST: bucky/reader. He wakes up and goes to the kitchen to wash his face bc he had night terrors from all the tortures and killings he’d been doing for Hydra. The reader finds him bc she wakes up to drink some water. He has a moment in which he doesn’t recognize where he is and the reader comes from behind calling his name. He submits her and bends her with his metalic arm

….

Bucky Barnes woke up from yet another nightmare, with a sheen amount of sweat on his body and heart racing in his chest. It had become the norm for him to wake up in the middle of the night because of his nightmares.

Flashbacks of the torture and the things that he had done were coming back to haunt him. The amount of sleep that he had gotten those last few weeks were not enough and it was getting to him. He was snappy with his friends and exhausted the majority of the time.

Bucky got out of his bed and walked out of his room to the kitchen. It was closer than the bathroom and he wanted to splash some water on his face.

He assumed that everyone else was asleep since it was quiet.

(Y/n) had been awake too but on the roof. Normally when she couldn’t sleep she would go for a walk but she didn’t want to venture out of the tower that night. (Y/n) was still getting used to being an Avenger. She was recruited by Nick Fury and she felt like she needed to prove that she could do amazing things like everyone else.

When she started getting chilly she decided to head back inside. If she would’ve brought a jacket she probably would’ve stayed out there all night.

After opening the elevator with her fingerprint, (Y/n) pressed the button for the main common area. She wanted to get some water before retiring to her room to try and get some sleep.

She walked into the kitchen and froze when she saw Bucky standing by the sink. His eyes were closed and he was taking deep breaths. He was losing himself but she didn’t know that.

“Bucky?” She spoke softly. She didn’t know if he was feeling ill or anything.

Bucky’s eyes shot open when he heard her. He didn’t even hear her walk in. At first he thought that he was hearing things but then he turned and looked behind him.

He saw (Y/n) was standing just a few feet away from him. She was still in regular clothes and not pajamas. Her hair looked like it was a tad unruly from being outside.

Bucky could feel his heart racing and knew that his night terrors weren’t over. He closed the space between them with two strides. (Y/n) recognized the look on his face. In that moment he wasn’t Bucky Barnes.

He was The Winter Soldier.

Bucky grabbed her by the neck with his metal arm and lifted her off the ground. (Y/n) saw the look in his eyes. He was completely lost and she never experienced that without Steve around.

“Bucky!” She trying gasping for air, her hands flying to her neck trying to pry his grip off of her.

It’s like she never spoke at all. She swung her legs until one of her feet managed to kick him in his knee as hard as she could.

Bucky let her go and she landed on the floor gasping for breath.

“It’s me, Bucky! It’s me! You’re okay!” (Y/n) scooted back as she saw he moved closer to her again. Her arms shielded herself.

“(Y/n).” She heard Bucky whisper.

She lowered her arms and saw that the murderous look in his eyes had gone away.

“I’m so– I’m sorry I didn’t. I’m-” he couldn’t complete his sentences.

(Y/n) got up slowly. She could feel her neck beginning to ache already. She knew that she would have terrible bruises by dawn.

Bucky had started to tremble. He felt more guilt coursing through him. Another person harmed because of him.

He expected for her to run away and to get Steve or Stark. (Y/n) and Bucky never really had much of a friendship. They were cordial but that’s it.

Bucky felt one of her hands against his back in a soothing manner. He turned to look at her, “Why are you still here? I could hurt you.”

(Y/n) would be lying if she said she wasn’t a little scared, but she wouldn’t show that to him. She didn’t want to contribute to anymore of his guilt.

“You won’t hurt me.” (Y/n) surprised Bucky and herself by saying that. She took a step closer to him and wrapped her arms around his midsection. Bucky froze not knowing what to do at first. He hugged her back and felt his heart start racing again but for a completely different reason than before.

I think -personal opinion time, sorry- that the whole ItaSasu debate is a question of terminology. There's "I find the dynamic horrible and unhealthy and fascinating to explore (in fiction)", but the word 'shipping' has a sort of positivity and approval attached, like "yes, I think they fit well together and should/would have a (mostly) positive relationship". (If this is un-called for, ignore me, yeah?)

No, no, this is quite interesting actually, thank you for this! I’ve never thought of ‘shipping’ as exclusively having a positive connotation attached, I honestly didn’t know. 

For me, romantic relationships will run the entire gamut of positive to negative, and I don’t shy away from the negative part, which apparently isn’t the…norm… here? It’s fascinating to me how people can have all these things (circumstances, other people, themselves) stacked against their relationship and yet they still love each other, for better or for worse.

I guess it’s a personal thing? I’ve been in both Itachi/Shisui (very cute, much fluff) and Itachi/Sasuke (jesus christ marie) sorts of relationships, metaphorically speaking, and I can’t really tell you which one I preferred out of them.

i hate how people on this site will use any famous person's death and make it about their movement. David Bowie was suddenly a rapist and pedophile, so they took to ruining his name after he died. now they're ignoring that Prince was actually pretty homophobic because he happened to challenge gender norms.

Is 1 alternate lose/win condition per set going to be the norm going forward, after Demonic pact in Origins, Felidar Sovereign in BFZ, Hedron Alignment in OGW, and Triskaidekaphobia in SOI, or is this just an anomaly?

We tend to do no more than one, unless it’s a mechanic, as a default, but we don’t always have one.

  • ok so I haven't been able to play League in like a month and I feel so attacked
  • thERES A NEW CHAMP??? MORE SKINS??? A NEW LOBBY???
  • OK RIOT
  • also like I haven't been able to pay attention to E-Sports bc I'm busy w my KPOP and homework lol
  • like do u know how it feels to get attacked by BTS and their new songs?? Also like I'm getting into Seventeen and I'm still ASTRO trash hAhah ok I'm done bye

idk if that anon meant any ill intention but those questions just annoy me so much???

having to provide evidence for a character that you headcanon as gay is so tiring to me cause heteronormativity is seen as the norm lol

I think Klinger was a super important character to be on TV, especially at the time. He wore women's clothes to try to be called crazy, but it became the norm. And people accepted it and were concerned whenever he wore men's clothes and I think that's super important. There was also an ep where it showed Henry Blake kiss a man in a home movie and I think that's a super big deal too. They showed it as normal and I think it kind of paved the way for the people who live that normal everyday.
