Your favorite authors are being threatened...

…and no one wants to take it seriously. (by me, a RQ blog)

Earlier this morning, various threats to beloved NYT bestselling authors like Victoria Aveyard, Leigh Bardugo, and Cassandra Clare came into the light on Twitter.

It started with NYT bestselling author of the Red Queen series, Victoria Aveyard ( @vaveyard ) retweeting this photo of a threat she had received in hopes of getting Twitter to do something about the threat (this is not the first time she has been threatened/harassed on the website)

*the second photo is not Aveyard, she was not physically hurt

Aveyard’s response: “Well at least now we all know what to do. Torn bc they clearly want the attention but I also want this recorded and seen. Blegh. No apologies necessary, guys. The fault is not with us. Twitter needs to do better to protect users from serial harassers. This bleeds into the issues with stan twitter. We get threats like this, be they real or “jokes.” We can’t differentiate. We don’t know you. You can’t support women defending against their harassers while also perpetuating a culture of harassment for your own entertainment. We see you making snide jokes about our weight and our worth and our humanity so you can giggle with each other. It’s not great but okay. But a direct threat? Come on. You can’t do that & cry abuse when the person you are threatening to harm responds. Twitter isn’t a vacuum.“

Twitter took awhile to suspend the account, and at first notified Aveyard that “there was no violation of Twitter’s Rules regarding abusive behavior” which led to many fans reporting the account even more and tweeting at Twitter directly to provide better care against threats. 

Aveyard’s final response to fans: “Again, account finally suspended. But the person is just going to make another. Thanks for all the reporting, people. It means a lot.”

Aveyard later was defending fellow author Leigh Bardugo ( @lbardugo ),  NYT bestselling author of Six of Crows, Crooked Kingdom, and the Grisha trilogy, after ‘fans’ claimed Bardugo would “come after [them] with her cane”

Aveyard’s response: “Not interested in calling out people but definitely want to highlight how ugly this behavior is. What is the goal here? Where is your shame? …can we just acknowledge there is something incredibly broken if anyone thinks this is acceptable?”

Bardugo herself responded to the multiples claims on herself and other fellow authors about the ridiculousness of the level of harassment and how it indeed must be taken seriously, as well as why the authors are rightfully concerned.

Bardugo’s response: “This is some spectacular gaslighting. Let me explain the difference since you guys are creating false equivalences… and I do this knowing that there’s no way to “win.” You guys have decided that somehow, by calling out a vile threat, we’re the bullies. What were the consequences to the OP? She told an author “big b*tch, I’m coming for you” then threatened to corner her at Bookcon & beat her. A whole lot of people had to say, “Even if you’re joking, this isn’t okay.” Aside from just being cruel and ott… We have no way of knowing if it’s a credible threat, if the person is unwell and actually dangerous, or just a kid who thinks it’s funny. We have no way of recognizing that person or persons at a huge conference event with fairly lax security. I take no joy in making a kid feel bad, but that kid came with a lot nasty vitriol and you guys thought it was HILARIOUS. Zero empathy. If you think me walking around Bookcon with my cane is A THREAT and not, y'know, a way for me not to tip over… I’m not sure there’s anything more to say. I told Cassie I had her back and made a LoTR reference. Pretending you think it was a threat… God this is tiresome. If you don’t like me, if you think I might wield my mighty cane against you, I’m super easy to avoid. For one thing, I can’t run very fast #criplife. For another, you know what I look like and where I’m gonna be. I don’t have that advantage. And honestly, I shouldn’t have to spell this out. I want to be excited about Bookcon, about meeting readers… Not somehow having to explain how I have the right to defend myself or my friends if I’m VIOLENTLY ATTACKED… I’m sorry for the negativity. I know it’s a tiny fraction of the community who think this stuff is okay.“  

Cassandra Clare ( @cassandraclare ), NYT bestselling author of the Mortal Instruments was threatened by more than 3 accounts with tweets suggesting she would be cornered and beaten up at future book signings (referenced by Bardugo above).

Clare’s response: “A few people have asked me if I’m looking for tweets about this whole BEA/threats situation. I’m not, but of course my friends/agent/publisher are. This is a really serious situation. No one I work with think specific threats to beat the fuck out of him in a place I WILL be, is funny or a joke. I don’t go looking - seeing negativity online is nothing I enjoy. But I do get sent links because no one is invisible on the internet. I think there’s an idea that threats, etc are not threats if the intention was that they not be seen. And the argument that threats are "fan language” - no one has a lock on specific kinds of violent threats. Whatever the source we have to take them all equally seriously… I hope it doesn’t take authors getting hurt physically (more than they already have) for this kind of thing to stop being ‘funny.’“

An exchange between Bardugo, Clare, and a few random ‘fans’ pointed out some were annoyed at the authors for coming to social media about the threats

After all three bouts occurred, Aveyard retweeted the following message from  Brittany Cavallaro, NYT bestselling author of A Study in Charlotte and The Last of August.

Cavallaro’s response: "Ultimately, what’s gained by threatening authors online and at events, at assuming that a small window into their lives via Twitter…or that you ‘know them’ because of their books and so have the right to harass them or push into their personal lives…the end result is that you’ll lose that access. Authors will not do events. Will leave social media. Will take themselves away… Because right now, I’m definitely not writing. I’m reporting trolls and wondering how it came to this, why some readers think it’s okay.”

Queen Aveyard gave some notable responses to a few rude tweets about the whole fiasco:


As for Twitter and neutral fans who do not see these as actual threats, please realize that these beautiful authors are real people. Words hurt, sure, but seeing things like this can be terrifying, whether they’re real or not, it means someone at least thought about it, and you never know what can break someone. Not to mention that responses like this are caused by such silly things as who an author writes as a canon ship? That is utterly ridiculous and unacceptable. 

 Authors are now wanting to leave social media and seriously reduce the amount of response time to fans because of bad apples like these. Do not be one of these fake fans. The books that they write belong to them. They come from their imagination and expertise. It is their job and passion to give us these stories. We need to find stories we like to love and be okay with stories that don’t go the way we planned because they are not our stories. Threatening an author is never an okay route to go to get what you want. Turn those angry fingers to watt pad and write your own stories instead of pushing authors away from the internet.

Triple Circle Casting (Ritual)

Originally posted by thewitchystuff

The Circle (In Paganism/wicca/witchcraft) is a sphere that can protect you from energies that could tamper with your ritual/spell and is also used as a portal to connect you “between the worlds” not many magical practitioners use the circle but it’s a good way to protect the user while their doing their workings.

Triple Circle casting is mostly casting 3 circles just for extra protection and to also represent the goddess (Maiden, Mother, Crone i believe)

To begin take your wand/or just the finger on the hand you write with and go in a clockwise direction while imagining white or gold light coming out of your wand or finger (if you live in the southern hemisphere go in a counterclockwise direction).

Go once around the circle saying:

“In this place, this circle round I consecrate the sacred ground with golden(Or white) light this space surround all power here contained and bound.”

Go around a second time and say:

“From earth the things that manifest, from air the things of mind, from fire the things that motivate from water the souls refined.”

Go around one last time and say:

“And yet no place of time there be between the worlds, my word and me welcome, Ancient ones and see this place is sealed so mote it be.”

And now your circle is completed so now when your done with your spell or ritual close your circle by going in a counter clock wise motion (If you live in the southern hemisphere go in a clock wise motion) around the circle and imagine the energy going back into your finger (Or wand). Go around the circle 3 times and when your done ground and center

now your done.

I hope you enjoyed this little ritual post i made i’ll be making more in the future and if you have any questions or concerns feel free to message me.

The difference between Amulets and Talismans

The main difference between the two are what they are intended for. An amulet is typically charged solely to protect the user from something, be it evil or negative energy, bad luck, anger, or one’s own thoughts. While a talisman is charged with the intent of attracting something to the user, that possibly being money, luck, love, positivity, or knowledge regarding a decision.

Gossip Stopping Scrub

This scrub is designed to cleanse and protect its user from harmful gossip and slander. Use it stop gossip surrounding you and to and keep your name out of others’ mouthes.

  • two parts coarse sea salt 
  • two parts granulated white sugar 
  • 1 part ground black lava salt 
  • 1 part oil of your choice
  • essential oil of rose geranium
  • essential oil of dragon’s blood
  • optional: body safe glitter 

Sea salt cleanses you while the black lava salt banishes any harmful energies. The sugar is added to sweeten up those around you to your good side. Rose geranium essential oil stops the gossip and dragon’s blood gives the spell an extra kick of strength. A pinch of glitter reminds you that you’re a queen, no matter what anybody says.

Protective of us - Sakura’s Jealousy

User: merinxd.tumblr.com
Prompt: Protective of us Title: Sakura’s Jealousy aka Sasuke says the right things sometimes. Summary: sasusaku get lunch and are interrupted by a girl.

The incident happened when they were eating lunch at a café. It was a normal day for them: Sakura had finished her morning shift, Sasuke had finished his morning training, and then he met her at the steps of the hospital. They walked to a place Sasuke chose and she told him about the non-confidential parts of her morning. He listened and didn’t say much about his day, except that he was pleased with his progress.

It didn’t go badly until they sat down to eat. And now she just didn’t know about him…

 “I don’t know what I want.” She mumbled to herself, scanning the menu a few times over. “I don’t even know if I’m hungry.”

Sasuke replied, “You need to eat. You’re doing a double shift today, yes?”

“Hn. I am.” She nodded, thinking his words fair. “I’ll get something with meat then.” 

The server approached them and Sakura noticed the girl’s interested expression instantly. She was about to brush it off as a Sasuke-kun/fan girl moment, but then the waitress opened her mouth.

“Sasuke-kun. It’s nice to see you again.” She smiled. “It looks like you’ve been training hard.” The girl was starting to look more like a woman to Sakura, and the pink haired kunoichi frowned.

Sasuke didn’t notice and nodded, “Yes Riko-san, it went well as usual.”

Sakura’s ears perked up at the use of the girl’s name and she felt suddenly jealous. She had never considered that Sasuke would talk to other women – that he would ever be interested in small talk. Yet here he was smiling and interacting.

She didn’t like it.

Objectives And Their Interferences

Objectives And Their Interferences

anonymous: Dear Bing, if your objective is to make your users comfortable, right? Does that include, (This is gonna be a sensible subject) Jack? Or Mark for that matter? If so, have you tried you help them in the ‘battle of control’ before and it just didn’t work out? Were their demons pissed?

That is the center of my objective, to protect and comfort my users. I primarily take care of Jack, Mark when no one else will. I have been around when they have had certain…episodes, and their entities make themselves known.

I try my hardest to soothe them and keep them calm until the moment has passed. But there are times when I have come face to face with their entities, and I must say personally, I do not care for the one who calls himself Anti.

He has torn me asunder more than once when I have tried to assist Jack.

The one who recognizes himself as ‘Dark’ is somewhat more diplomatic, but I honestly don’t care much for either.

The only reason I even bother to tolerate them is for the fact that they are a plague unto my users and they prevent me from protecting them. 

Smoky Quartz is known to be a very protective crystal and is perfect for keeping us within our own auric field. This allows us to remain grounded, even in the most stressful situations. Smoky Quartz can protect the user from negativity, while transmuting this energy by grounding it and sending it into the earth.

Many of those that are just learning about energy, chakras, healing, psychic abilities and protecting themselves would do well to use this crystal. It is incredibly easy to become ungrounded during this time and this beautiful crystal helps to keep us from “floating” away!

 An excellent choice for those who astral travel/astral project as it protects from negative entities attaching.

This is the perfect crystal to keep in your pocket throughout the day or use in a crystal grid. This is a hard working stone, so be sure to cleanse it often!

A reporter found James Comey’s alleged social media account and it had the best tweet

  • Shortly after Gizmodo reporter Ashley Feinberg’s sleuthing of FBI Director James Comey’s Twitter account went viral, the account in question — @projectexile7 — sent out its first tweet: an Anchorman meme with what seemed like a cryptic job offer.
  • The account is now protected, but many Twitter users who had followed the account in the aftermath of the post were able to grab screenshots of the meme with a link to the FBI jobs page above it. Read more. (3/30/17, 9:37 PM)

anonymous asked:

If you could how would you change any of the Zodaic's magic power and/or make them more powerful. Personally I always thought Aries should have been a fire spirit using fire instead of wool, and also changed her personally a bit, make her more of a hot headed and confident person, sort like Eclipse counterpart.

PSA: Terf callout

An awful terf has been harassing me and others in the BatJokes shipping community, specifically transgender/allies, making death threats and just generally being a terrible human being. Please, for the safety and comfort of other transgender people on this website, please reblog this and report this user.

Some quotes from the lovely @snowysugarsparkle :


*in response to a transgender headcanon for TLBM* “I’m blocking you.”


*in response to an anon calling her out and accusing her of promoting the MURDER of every transgender individual* “BOO HOO.”


*in response to someone else calling her out* “WOMEN DO NOT HAVE DICKS.”


*responding to another transgender headcanon post* “DISGUSTING WANNABE’S.”


FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHER TRANSGENDER AND LGBTQ+ PEOPLE, PLEASE REPORT AND BLOCK THIS INDIVIDUAL FOR HATEFUL/THREATENING SPEECH. 

She already blocked me for arguing with her so her link doesn’t work here but please report this user, protect other transgender people from similar harassment and cyberbullying, please.

@snowysugarsparkle is a terf
@snowysugarsparkle is a cyberbully
please report @snowysugarsparkle

thatsweetbean  asked:

Thank you so much for standing firm on a no harassment policy. A few people already trying to bully or guilt trip Writscrib about protecting creative freedom and expression, and you are handling it all so well. You've made it clear that you'll have a blacklist system and user created pages for specific content, so the user should have control of what content they see. I think that's the best system to protect users from triggering or upsetting content, while still maintaining creative freedom.

Thank you! We have noticed a few posts accusing us of supporting/enjoying rape/pedophilia/incest, but we’re likely not going to engage. It’s okay if people don’t want to support us, and we would be more concerned with those people getting any hate if we did give attention to them.

We’re thankful for people like you who are as excited about our site as we are <3 You guys rock.
