4 was the majority so

I think the reason Vilde has been acting really annoying this season and last season compared to 1 and 2 is because it’s from Isak and Sana’s eyes and they probably find her the most extra when compared to Eva and Noora. We spent a lot of time taking perspectives into consideration when we discussed Jonas or Noora throughout the seasons, and I think this is the same kind of situation with Vilde. In season 1, we were seeing her for the first time so she was a bit in our faces but we quickly warm up to her and love her like Eva. In season 2, we see through Noora’s perceptive eyes that she has an eating problem and needs help and we feel bad for her with the William situation because Noora feels guilty. And season 3, we see her as this rumor spreading little lady who only cares about kosegruppa and her buns, and we also see her as Magnus’s target of attraction. Eventually Isak warms up to her as well, but its at the very very end. It’s been very interesting to see Vilde through Sana’s eyes because shes been all MagnusMagnusMagnus so far. Whether she’s overcompensating for her hidden feelings for girls, or that this is the first proper boyfriend shes had and she wants to talk about him all the time, or she literally just loves sex and wants to talk about it, one thing we know for sure because of how we ourselves are feeling about her: Sana is finding her hella annoying.

Why I love Book 4 Korra’s development

So a few days ago, I made a half-joking post about how Korra’s character understandably changed by the end of Book 4. After months of thought, I’m finally making a post on why, as a woman of color, I am totally here for the change.

i’m just really upset by the fact that keith is growing more and more fond of lance while lance grows less and less confident in himself and neither of them realize what the other is feeling

max and the way after midnight visitor (bmw 1)

So last weekend I decided to check back in on Paranatural for the first time in years… such a good move. Still my favorite by far. And hey, I’m apparently back just in time for bullymagnet week, which wasn’t even a thing before. My timezones may be a little off, not quite sure, but this is for day one - night.


Max wakes up at 4:17 AM to the familiar sound of ol’ Hissin’ Pete freaking out. He groans, rolling over to put a pillow on top of his head, only to bolt upright when he rolls right onto his fractured arm.

“FLIPPIN’ HECK,” he screams through gritted teeth, curling over it.

“Mister Max! Are you okay?” PJ inquires, looming out of the darkness with a nightmare grin. Max means that literally. He’s had nightmares about that grin.

It does look a little more nervous than usual this time, though. He squints, honestly just to get a better look in the darkness, but PJ immediately quails before his face, admitting, “I’m sorryyyy, it was me that got Hissin’ Pete going but I only did it because a weird kid on your roof threatened to punch Lefty!”

y’all since I know this would interest many of you, I suggest you check out mindhunter on netflix. it’s like criminal minds but loosely based off of real FBI agents, shows how the BAU came to be, and.. (in my opinion)… is better.

Guess who’s finally gunna shave their head!?!?!?

Y'all remember me going on about wanting to do some dumb shit to my hair? Finally got clippers 😎😎😎😎

anonymous asked:

1) I saw your tags on that post of Lizbobs about Twist and Shout and I am so happy that clear thinking meta writers like you agree that it in no way should be as popular as it is. It makes me cringe whenever someone brings it up as if it is actually a ‘beloved’ fic. I’m sorry if this sounds hateful, and I don’t mean to bring hate on the writers who put effort into it, but at some point this fandom has gotta realise that this fic being the ‘flagship fic’ for Destiel is a really REALLY bad thing.

2) Consider this fandom: We are close to getting canon destiel. That could put this show on the map, get real media interest. There is no doubt therefore that some media will dig further into the ‘fandom phenomenon’ behind destiel. Imagine just how CRINGEWORTHY it will be for mainstream media to discover that the most popular destiel fan fic is nothing more than poorly written tragedy porn rip off of Forrest Gump with the standard ‘kill your gays with aids trope’ at the end?!?! It is actually

3) disgraceful and we should be ashamed of ourselves for trying to push this fics popularity. Imagine how, on the chance destiel DOES become canon (which in my mind is rather likely) the writers, creators and actors on this show would feel that their beautiful love story about an angel and a hunter was butchered and turned into something frankly AWFUL?

4) How would Misha feel to know that a so called majority of destiel fans actually idolise a fic where his character dies from aids thanks to his decent into drug abuse?! What the HELL fandom?! WHY is this such a popular fic? It is a disgrace to the show, a disgrace to the characters and frankly an insult to our intelligence as a fanbase looking for LGBT+ representation. We don’t need more gay tragedies. That is pretty much ALL we get in mainstream media.

5) Yes the aids crisis was a horrible tragedy, but after decades of mainstream media giving LGBT people basically NOTHING but tragic stories where there are no happy endings for us, isn’t it about time that this trope DIED? Yet here we are, a modern and at least somewhat progressive fandom, still glorifying a fic that falls under that same tired miserable category. Not to mention that the fic is terrible written and the characters are absolutely nothing like their canon counterparts.

6) Sorry, I know this is getting rather mean, but years of pent up anger about this stupid fic is bringing it out of me in your inbox. Lets all be honest here. Twist & Shout is our ‘My Immortal’. It needs to die. Just like ‘My Immortal’ did for Harry Potter, it gives all other destiel fics a bad name. Can we PLEASE stop glorifying it and admit how shitty it is already.I know this is a harsh message, and I am sure that a lot of people would be upset by me saying these things, but it’s the truth

7) and I’ve spoken to enough people in fandom who silently agree with me. Though we all live in silence for fear of offending this mysterious majority of destiel shippers who apparently adore this fic? I’m sorry, but I am convinced that if we were to do a survey of peoples actual opinions on that fic, it wouldn’t come up positive at all. Popularity grows popularity. That’s the problem here. New people search for the most popular fics on AO3, and they become more popular, and those same new

8) people then believe that T&S is the standard to live up to in destiel fandom. That is an embarrassment for all of us. I just really want the obsession to end. Its not a good thing.

Oh hi. I see you have Feelings™ about this, and since I largely agree… 

I’ll start off by linking the post you’re referring to, with my attendant tags on it, here:


as well as a few other tag rambles I’ve gone on over the years here, going all the way back to 2015. So that at least gives readers an idea of how I personally feel about it. And now on to the disclaimer section of this post:

I’ve always been, and will ALWAYS be a proponent of fanfic being a “ship and let ship” environment. I will NEVER assume to dictate what people write, read, or find enjoyment in. I will NEVER judge what “should” and “shouldn’t” be written or enjoyed by ANYONE. FULL STOP.

I am also a fierce advocate for “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” when it comes to discussing fanfic. And that will never change.

But that’s not the issue when it comes to the inexplicable fandom “popularity” of this particular fic. If you read it and loved it, that’s GREAT! I’m glad. More power to you. It’s not the fic itself I have an issue with. I just wanted to make that clear. I am not here to dissuade people from enjoying it, nor to speak ill of the story itself.

It’s the nature of the story itself, versus the nature of fanfic, versus the fandom mystique surrounding it– the fact that it has somehow become the Flagship Fic Standard for ALL destiel fic, and the fact that for some reason the fandom itself seems to push it at the actors and creators and crew members of this show over and over again.

I’ve often wondered  if some of Bob Singer’s cavalier attitude about having killed Charlie Bradbury wasn’t directly rooted in the fact that the entire production staff seems to be aware of T&S, even if they haven’t actually read it for legal reasons, but at least know that this particular fic that is apparently glorified in this fandom is founded on the Kill Your Gays trope.

Like, we constantly yell at TPTB to be better than that, and yet THIS is the story we’ve chosen as a fandom to elevate to the highest pinnacle of fanfic glory?

It’s just… depressing.

(and honestly, this fic is THE reason I refuse to read ANY fic that’s tagged “period typical homophobia.” I just… refuse to torture myself with that damn trope anymore)

But from everything I’ve read about it (and from the half a chapter I managed to struggle through myself before noping out), the only thing necessary to make this an original work of fiction would be to change the names of the characters. It’s not even a “file the serial numbers off” job. It READS like original fiction where the characters and plot share little other than the names of our beloved Dean and Cas.

And to me, that’s not why I read fanfic. If I wanted to read about entirely different people, I’d read original fiction, you know? Not struggle to identify with characters that bear little to no resemblance to the characters I actually care about.

It’s not just a problem with AU fic, because I’ve read HUNDREDS, if not THOUSANDS of AU fics that don’t seem to have this problem with keeping the characters “in character” even in entirely different situations. If they can feel like Dean and Cas in a Firefly AU, or a Regency Romance, or a Gothic Horror, or Ancient Rome, or in a fantasy AU where they’re witches or dragons or a freaking octopus, then yeah, they can remain in character in ANY AU. HECK I ADORED AN AU WHERE DEAN AND CAS WERE FREAKING CHICKENS. LITERALLY CHICKENS. And it was more in character than T&S.

I’m not going to presume to suggest the sort of fic that I believe is more representative of the best of our fandom, but having read far more than 5000 fics (I’ve got over 4k in my AO3 history, and I read fic for over a year before I got an account there to start tracking my history, PLUS all the fic I’ve read on LJ, FF.net, tumblr, etc… I mean the real number is probably closer to 10k or even MORE if you count all the little drabbles and things), I have to say that the MAJORITY of fic I’ve read has been far better at representing Dean and Cas as I know and love them.

We as a fandom don’t have to agree on what the “best fanfic” of the lot of them is, but can we at least agree to stop pushing THIS PARTICULAR FIC so forcefully and directly into the faces of the actors, writers, crew, etc.?

If we want THEM to do better by our characters, if we want our shouts of STOP KILLING OUR QUEERS to actually hit home, maybe we need to stop glorifying this particular fic to TPTB at every goddamn turn.

(and second disclaimer: In all my years in fandom, aside from anon messages praising the fic, I have spoken to exactly TWO people who admitted to enjoying this fic. Talking privately with hundreds of others, people express a far less enthusiastic opinion of it. I firmly believe that the vast majority of hits on it are from people just like me and others I’ve talked to about it, that the only reason we ever clicked on it was due to this very fandom mystique, the controversy about its popularity, and curiosity over what all the fuss was about. It’s become a self-sustaining enterprise of generating more and more hits, you know?)

Newbies to fandom and fanfic are often encouraged to go to AO3 and search the ship results by either hits or kudos to read “the best stories” first, and of course T&S is the first result either way.

But as a fic WRITER? Can I just speak for all of us when I say getting a comment that our story was “just as good as T&S” doesn’t really feel like a compliment? Most of us don’t WANT to think we’ve written an OOC Kill Your Queers tragedy porn, or to really be associated with it in any way.

Honestly, we need to stop hating ourselves this much.


Lip deciding not to cross that great big rainbow bridge felt more and more like a mistake as the months progressed. Lip was neither solid nor gas, but somewhere trapped between. The memories and relationships he once cherished were somewhat altered when he passed over, and it was obvious to the Whitaker girls. 

Lydia, still too young to fully understand, was even more confused by the fact that her daddy could now change colour at the blink of an eye and pass through walls. She could not understand this kind of death. 

Ramona longed to feel the same carnal desire for Lip that she had felt back when he was solid and breathing. She loved him, of course she did. But things were different, they had shifted. Lip was different.

 Nothing was the same as it had been. 

teru cactus/haystack wig tutorial

an anon asked me how i made my wig so here’s my writeup. disclaimer: this is only the way i chose to do it, but there are tons of other ways out there as well! also, i don’t have pics of allll the steps i used so i hope that’s ok.

the wig:

i first started off with a base wig and 2 packs of wefts. i think it was a magnum from @ardawigs in fairy blonde, and two packs of their short wefts also in fairy blonde. i actually ended up needing like 4 or 5 packs of wefts so this was a major oversight by me since i had some troubles with the wefts i need constantly being on backorder.

using a seam ripper, i took off the skin top and a lot of the wefts on the top, leaving a roughly 5″x5″ square of the open net. Then, i used craft foam and hot glue to make a kind of cage. the cage was circular and made up of roughly 1.5″ or 2″ strips of craft foam. if i had to do this wig again, I’d add more horizantal bars than I did, but for now this seems to be ok structurally. on 4 points, i left the vertical bars lower to cover the corners on the empty square of the wig. after my cage was complete, i handsewed it onto the wig base (didnt want to use hot glue since it would stiffen up the cap and I didnt want that). then i put a lot of polyfill into the empty cage. You can get a better idea of what I did in the picture below as well. I was using 12″x18″ craft foam, but it wasn’t long enough to reach around the entire circumference of the circle, so I had to frankenstein some of the strips together. Also note that I padded out the polyfill on the areas around the corners, and the bars are closer together at the bottom for more structural stability.

then, i took my wefts and started hot gluing them on in a spiral. i started with the wefts i took from the wig, and then when i ran out, i used my long strings of short wefts, which i applied in approximately 18″ sections so i didn’t have to deal with the full 8′ long strand. the spiral had ~1 inch of spacing between the rows. i set aside the skin top so it could be put on top of the wig when i was done. since the wefts were still very long for being short wefts, at a hefty 19″ long, when i ran out of the strands i would go through and trim sections off, and then using fabric glue, glue them together into clumps that i could hot glue onto the wig. i’ve made a shitty diagram so you can see what i mean because i suck at explaining things

and here’s a picture of the wig halfway done

you can see the glued wefts at the top of the progress line here! i continued this process until the wig was done! i would periodically go back and trim the hairs so they looked nice and werent chunky, and i added onto sections that seemed too thin or had gaps between the wefts.

(it looks like an uncircumcised penis here rip)

after fluffing and styling the wig with the help of got2b glue hairspray and a handy dandy hairdryer.

the wig is flexy and sturdy, and isnt as heavy as i anticipated. i looked through some other writeups before i did this and a lot of them used just one big cylinder of craft foam, but it seemed like it would be very stiff and i kinda wanted the ability to have it move (since it does in canon for a lot of comedic effect). i’m sewing wig clips into the front and sides so it doesnt come off since it is very heavy.

i hope this helps and im sorry if my shitty tutorial-writing skills are painful and confusing!!!

The Smoking Gun

This is just a brief post on the guns that we repeatedly saw throughout series 4. The “smoking gun” was a major theme of the series - it was even in the title credits. 

That screen cap is from T6T, and it shows a smoking handgun, which (obviously) indicates that the gun was just fired. 

There has been a lot of discussion about this smoking gun. Who’s gun is it? Who is firing it? Who is being shot? Etc, etc. 

I don’t think the smoking gun is much of a mystery.

I’m fairly convinced that the smoking gun is Norbury’s gun. 

Now, I also think that the majority of what we see in Season 4 is mind palace. So it is possible that someone other than Norbury is shooting that gun in reality. And I also think it is possible that someone other than Mary is being shot. 

However, I noticed something else that I think is very interesting. 

This is from the scene by the water, when Sherlock is talking to Faith and he has his little acid flashback:

That’s not Norbury’s gun. That is a Sig Sauer of some sort, a compact one. Probably a P228. 

Here’s the next frame:

That is the same Sig pistol, in the instant after it was fired. At this point, the recoil has pushed the slide to the rear to eject the shell, but the recoil hasn’t carried into the shooter’s arm. 

Here’s the final frame:

This is a millisecond later. The recoil has pushed the pistol back and upwards, and the slide has closed. 

Conclusion? That is a Sig Sauer being fired. 

Who has a Sig Sauer? 


Ok. So Sherlock’s vision of the sig lasts for about three or four frames. It is very, very quick. After the frames of the sig, we get the following very clear image:


Then we see this:

That’s the Norbury gun again. 

It’s also the same gun that we saw in the cold open to TLD, the one floating above John’s nose:

Now, here’s the thing about that gun. I’ve seen numerous references to that gun being a Walther PPK, “Like James Bond carries.” 

That’s not a Walther PPK. 

This is a Walther PPK:

That’s the gun Mary is holding to Magnussen’s head in HLV, and the same gun she will shoot Sherlock with in a few moments. 

That gun is a Walther PPK (with a silencer). Like James Bond. 

Norbury’s gun isn’t a Walther PPK. 

Norbury’s gun, the gun we see smoking repeatedly throughout season 4, is a CZ 82 (or 83, same gun, different caliber). 

On screen it can be tricky to tell the CZ 82 from the PPK, but if you pay close attention to the trigger guard, you’ll see that the CZ guard sticks out. It’s rounded in the front, very large, and sort of odd looking. 

It’s most noticeable in this shot:

The image is a bit distorted, but you can see the trigger guard is quite different. 

Now look at the smoking gun again:

See that weird, gigantic trigger guard? That’s Norbury’s gun. 

Okay… so what? Norbury murdered Mary. That’s a pretty big deal. Of course everyone keeps thinking about the gun. 

Well, I don’t think Norbury’s gun is what is important. I think what is important is the tiny little flash we get of Eurus’ gun being fired. I think that little flash is reality breaking into the fantasy we’ve been watching since series 3. 

I’m leaning more and more towards the “corrupted memories” theory that @finalproblem has been writing about. 

If you watch the riverside scene with Sherlock and Faith/Eurus, it almost seems like the combination of talking to Eurus, holding/throwing a gun, and thinking about loss triggered the memory of a compact Sig Sauer being fired. 

But then what happens? We see the briefest glimpse of a sig being fired, and then we get a blindingly clear vision of the London Aquarium. In daylight. 

And then we’re back to Norbury’s smoking gun. 

Almost as if the aquarium and norbury’s gun are pushing the memory of the sig out of Sherlock’s mind. 

And this is when Sherlock starts to have some sort of fit or something. He’s suddenly in pain, screaming. 

The we get three frames of an image of a needle filling with what appears to be black oil.

Sherlock collapses:

Incidentally, this is not the last time we’ll see Sherlock collapsing in conjunction with a black oily or inky substance:

That’s pretty much all I have for now. I do think this supports the idea of memories being corrupted, or more likely, being overwritten. 

You know, like a dog?

good news: one of my favorite contemporary writers has a new novel out

bad news: they stopped printing her short story collection so now it’s like…grossly expensive to buy used on amazon
