Question: Steven Universe has strong themes that center on women’s empowerment and LGBT themes. (Applause, cheers) Rebecca, what inspired you to include these themes in the show?

Rebecca Sugar: Well, in large part it’s based on my experience as a bisexual woman. (Applause, cheers) I think that there are a lot of ways that I - oh, I haven’t thought this… These themes have so much to do with who you are. There is an idea that these are themes that should not be shared with kids, but everyone shares stories about love and attraction with kids. So many stories for kids are about love. And it really makes a difference to hear stories about how someone like you can be loved. And if you don’t hear those stories, it will change who you are. It’s very important to me that we speak to kids about consent, that we speak to kids about identity, that we speak to kids about… I want to feel like I exist, and I want everyone else who wants to feel that way to feel that way too. (Loud applause, cheers)

I’m not crying. You’re crying.

Warning: heartbreaking

Ships: Stony, Pepperony, SharonxSteve, SharonxTony

Tony has fiancée Pepper. She wants to know where is Tony going every sunday afternoon. She asked a lot of times but he tried to escape it. But it was time, she has to know if they are planning future together.

One sunday he take her in little town where he grew up. They skip his house and went to local cemetery. There was one grave different than others. It was nice, if you could tell it for the place like that. It was full of fresh flowers.


STEVE ROGERS

4th July 1982 - 18th May 2002

I’m sorry, Tony.


They sit there and Tony started talking about his history he wasn’t proud of. He needs a lot of courage for this.

Howard and Maria, Tony’s parents, tried for so long to get a child and finally it happened. He come to world. They were overprotecting him. Maria was protecting him in good and bad acts. Howard would punish him if he do something wrong but it was rarely because he was never home.

Tony was very smart kid and he doesn’t need much to learn. He was very popular in school. He knew how to use it. He use his friends for everything he needed.

One summer day, boy named Steve comes to that little town. That was when everything changed.

He was two years younger than Tony but he looks even more younger because of his appearence. His mother was sick and he take care of her. Howard help them a lot which made Tony more jealous. He wanted the two of them to become friends and Tony couldn’t even think of that.

But the real reason why he didn’t like Steve was Howard who sometimes seem to love Steve even more than Tony. He always laud him.

He use every chance to make jokes and laugh at him in front of all his friends.

Steve never told anything that Tony do to him to his mother or Tony’s parents. That made Tony prank him more frequently.

Steve’s mother died when they finished school and Howard take care of Steve and both of them enter same high school.

In high school everything was the same. Steve was smart usually called nerd and Tony was famous.

At the end of high school. Steve taught of his feelings, he wanted to forget Tony. He fall in love with girl, Sharon. When Tony saw that he get idea.

Tony made Sharon fall in love with him and they go out secretly. He told her to go on prom with Steve, what she did and then Tony propose to her, when Steve taught something’s finally going fine to him, it was all Tony’s plan. He was broken.

From that moment Steve didn’t come home, he didn’t call. After some time he started sending letters to Howard, he said he joined army and that he is in war.

Tony went to college. He didn’t feel good for what he done to Steve, he had nightmares and he wanted to apologize. He changed. He couldn’t stop thinking of Steve and what he did to him.

At weekend he went home and wanted to find Steve and apologize to him. He read letters from Steve and then he get the last one. Last one was for him. For Tony.

In letter he said he love him and he forgive him everything. Tony started crying. Remorse which he felt now was indescribable moreover because he felt the same about Steve and what he done to him was because he taught it was wrong.

Tony felt that he must find Steve. He must apologize to him personaly.

The day Steve was supposed to come back Tony went to wait for him but he didn’t come. Tony find out that Steve died for friend whose name was Tony.

Tony’s heart break into pieces. He asked for Steve’s body he wanted to bury him. Nobly because he was hero.

Tony couldn’t forgive himself. He made him the most beautiful monument and visit him every sunday bringing him fresh flowers and tell him that he still loves him.

“Pepper I want you to know this. I would never love you like I love him.” Tony said.

Pepper was shocked. She disappear. One year she didn’t saw Tony. Then one sunday she went to Steve’s grave because she knew that she can find him there.

She have four months old baby in her arms.

“Pepper…” Tony said.

“Tony, meet your son.” she said and he look at baby. He realize she was pregnant. He take him in his arms.

“What is his name?” Tony asked looking at baby.

“I was actually thinking, if you agree… Steve.” she said.

His heart stopped for few seconds. He hug baby and kiss his forehead.

“Steve…”

A Symmrat headcanon: Junkrat, in an attempt to impress Symmetra during a blossoming start of a relationship, actually does cleans himself, dress nicely (with stolen clothes from a suit-and-tie store), and tries to have good posture. Roadhog tries to talk him out of it, saying that Symmetra would find it off due to a sudden change in behavior and dress.

And Junkrat should’ve listened, because sure enough, Symmetra gets uncomfortable and says,“ No, this isn’t right at all, change back,” and promptly (with great discomfort, she’s going to have a long hot shower afterwards) throws mud at him. Junkrat is pleased with it.

After a week or so, when nobody finds the ordeal funny to laugh at over water cooler conversations anymore, Junkrat has more or less sense enough to give Symmetra a month’s worth of (stolen, again) hand sanitizer wipes and face wipes. Now, without changing his and her entire beings, can hold hands with her, and she can afterwards be able to be kept as clean as she likes, and things are as they are supposed to be.

If BioWare is so set on making Thedas fit this One Particular Mold, that our choices within the games can only affect so much, then I recommend that they lower the scale of things, write personal and intimate stories about the change that a single Player Character goes through, rather than events that change the world. Like, sure, they can be things like ‘Hawke discovers the red lyrium idol and the existence of red lyrium, but put us in the position of the Inquisition’s top general, rather than its leader, so that the world-shaping decision isn’t on our character, so that even if we disagree with the hardwired choice, our character isn’t in a position to do anything but go along with it.

Sure, we want to play as the capital-H hero of the tale, but if we can’t have genuine choices that reshape the world (and so long as BioWare continues this franchise, we can only make changes in degrees anyway, that affect cameos and lines of dialogue but not major set pieces), don’t put us in a place where we’re deciding them.

anonymous asked:

That one tweet or whatever that stated that Shiro was 25 was disproven, like later the person changed their story and others said that age was never discussed, but instead it was confirmed prior to SDCC that all the paladins are in their teens. So;;;

And that video like holy shit i want and offical statement from an official source before people get doxes for nothing

Throwback… Saturday? Selfie Game too Strong Selfie Saturday

Vyseria has gone through so many different character identity/story/face changes but it’s safe to say I’m the happiest with her current look. It’s not a look I see often in the game and it’s really fun to play around with, especially outfit ideas with her too. Everyone has met her with great reception too, I know a close friend of mine experienced some racist/abusive comments for having an Arabic surname so I’m hoping to avoid this. However, even if I receive this kind of attitude from others it won’t make me want to change her look ever.

i just transcribed the rest of the “holy shit rebecca sugar is bi” speech in case you haven’t heard it - it starts a little before 47 minutes in the periscope.

It’s very important to me that we speak to kids about consent, we speak to kids about identity….

I want to feel like I exist and for everyone else who feels that way to feel that way.”

Autostraddle: Rebecca Sugar Is Bisexual

Hey, this is pretty cringey and tabloidy and vapid honestly but they transcribed Rebecca’s answer and that’s important!

ladies, if he asks you for nudes in the beginning, I would say especially in the first couple of weeks he don’t like you.

ladies, if he only wants to talk to you when you send nudes or is visibly more happy to speak to you when you send nudes, he don’t like you.

ladies, even if he still talks to you when you send nudes in the beginning, trust me that will come back into play later. whether it’s 5 months, 6 months or a year later, you’ll realize he don’t like you.

ladies, if all of a sudden after those nudes you realize you ain’t hearing from him no more, he only used you for your nudes and don’t listen to his excuses. he ain’t like you.

ladies, if there’s always an excuse for why he can’t contact you but no solid explanation or changing stories, he ain’t like you.

ladies, if you have to beg him to open up or be himself with you, he ain’t like you.

ladies, if you see him talking to any and everyone else but when it’s you it’s all of a sudden an excuse why he can’t talk to you, he ain’t like you.

ladies, if you always have to make excuses for him and his bad behavior to others when you talking about him, he ain’t like you.

ladies, if something feels off, it is off. trust your intuition because it’s always right.

and all of this can be vise versa too, ladies out here playing with men too.

Mata was was a character intended to be in an earlier version of Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove called Kingdom In The Sun. She would have been a love interest for Kuzco and would have aided him on his journey. She appears to have had a sarcastic personality, calling Kuzco “llama boy”. She was designed by Joe Moshier, while Sandro Cleuzo was to be her supervising animator. After the story underwent several changes, the name Mata was eventually used for the waitress at Mudka’s Meat Hut. (x)

London Floors

Strolling around London is like changing planets from one street to the next.Now you are in the East End, surrounded by artists and Bangladeshi restaurants. Then you cross the road and you find yourself among men of the City, wearing black suits and Rolex watches. Now you are on a Georgian terrace in Islington. A few meters more and you find yourself in the shadow of concrete skyscrapers. London’s hodgepodge is the result of a story of continuous changes. The great fire of 1666 destroyed almost all the medieval buildings. Since then, the city has experienced constant regeneration. This ever-changing landscape is reflected in the floors of the city. The paving of its restaurants, shops, churches, and flats form an enormous, heterogeneous and unpredictable patchwork. That’s why a group of London’s pavement connoisseurs were attracted by the work of Sebastian Erras, a German photographer who has portrayed the floors of other European cities in collaboration with Pixartprinting . After they showed him some pictures of London’s floors, he could not resist making one more floors-addicted trip (by now the last one). Follow the link to see the entire series.
