30 Of The Most Important Articles By People Of Color In 2016
Required reading.

“For the second year in a row, we’ve curated a list of essays and articles that defined conversations about race, pop culture, politics and identity in 2016. They cover a wide array of topics, from reactions to the election of Donald Trump, to the huge role young black people play in internet culture, to the genius of James Baldwin. The criteria is simple: all pieces on this list were written by a person of color and published within the last year online.

As a look back, this year-end list is by no means fully comprehensive of all the stellar work written by writers of color in 2016. Feel there’s a glaring omission? Nominate your favorite pieces in the comments. In the meantime, check out these powerful, thought-provoking and entertaining reads from this year.”

Writer appreciation post

So, you all know by now how much I adore the writers in this fandom. Tonight, I’d like to specifically appreciate the quality of the romantic writing in the CS universe.

Just for…um…*cough*…research, I browsed through some of the smuttier AO3 tags, and holy cow, there is a lot of REALLY bad smut out there. People can write/express whatever they want, of course, but 99% of it was simply unreadable.

We have so many amazing writers who give us hot, romantic, kinky, sizzling fics that make us actually *feel* something. They aren’t just a list of positions and creative genitalia terminology, but rather well-written, character-driven stories that spark our imaginations and make us feel a bit closer to our favorite couple/s.

I am afraid of making a list of my favorites and leaving someone out, so I’ll just say a huge “thank you” to all of you talented beans brave enough to put it all out there. :-)

We all adore you!

What kind of kinks do you have if you don't mind me asking, and do you have a favorite kink? Mine is a daddy kink Lmfao.

Ho boy. This would be a long list if I went through it all.

I couldn’t say my favourite to be honest, haha! I love breath play/asphyxiation, exhibitionism/voyeurism, rough play like super rough play, I have a huge marking kink if people hadn’t picked up on that already haha.

Suit kink too, obviously, dirty talk kink is huge on my list, anything with someone pushed up against a wall? Fuck yeah. Mirror play now thanks to the last fic haha. Cum play, restraint/tying up (but not full on bondage). Sensory deprivation(aaaaaah) I like the daddy kink too but I’m very fussy with it to be honest haha.

And yes I’m into gun play for those wondering, I won’t ever write something I’m not into.

I’ll like nearly anything as long as the pairing is conveyed as equals and both fully in control one way or another. I’m just huge on both partners being strong and bad ass.

Because if they’re strong and powerful it’s more fun to make them beg 😈 (I really just want Yuuri to make Victor beg okay, you have no idea)

Falling down – Edguy

You don’t have a brain 
(You don’t wanna have a brain) 
You are just a masquerade, just a nice facade 
In a snob parade, I know 
(You don’t know) 

/…/

I’m not like you and I don’t wanna be /…/

Nimrodel – Caprice

But from the west has come no word
And on the hither shore
No tidings Elven-folk have ever heard
Of Amroth evermore

The webs we weave – Escape the Fate

Before I die
I will have seen it all
The mountains I have climbed
Help me enjoy the fall

Crazy Angel – Kill Hannah

I’ll hold on so hard and pray
That I won’t say something wrong
I’ll look at the stars and dream
That the universe was ours

Forever love – X Japan

Ah 全てが終わればいい
終りのないこの夜に
Ah 失うものなんて
何もない 貴方だけ

Throne – Kamijo

夢を見ていた 少年を待つ未来は

悲しいだけではない

彼は雄偉な王となった

 

Oh what a night – The four seasons  (Sherlock soundtrack)

Why’d it take so long to see the light?
Seemed so wrong, but now it seems so right

(Haha. I dunno. Sad song :P)

The headless game – Edguy

Longing for silence… 
“Always faster” is the way that we go. 
Not a little patience… 
Higher, farer, better we grow. 


This will never end – Blind Guardian

Things go on
But nothing will last,
Only the fool in me believes
There is sense in it.

  • How I like to think I'd behave upon meeting Paul McCartney: wow, I'm a huge fan! I really love and respect your work. Thank you so much for everything!
  • How I would probably actually behave: oh my gosh... Oh my gosh... I love you SO MUCH. You are my favorite artist of ALL TIME. Do you have any idea how awesome you are??!? Seriously... You're amazing. I listen to your music practically 24/7. Want to hear a list of all of my favorite songs of yours? There are like 300. Ooh... Could you sing Hey Jude for me? I can't believe you're an actual person that I'm talking to. Oh man... I have such a crush-

alright. i know this is an unpopular opinion but hear me out. i’m actually really happy that dan and phil might be changing their branding. i feel like the lions and llamas fringe whiskers period is over. i completely understand that those things are a huge part of them but i don’t like that these things are what people  like those kind of things make them appeal to younger audiences and make them seem like little kid entertainers, and theyre so much more than that!! theyre two adults who have been through so much together and want to make all these people happy, and i feel like labeling them as “the two bloggers who love lions and llamas” is a huge understatement. these two men have written a worldwide bestselling book. they made an app. they’ve produced the most successful tour in the entire youtube community.

when i mention to people that my favorite youtubers are dan howell and phil lester and i see people wrinkle their faces in disgust, i feel like going up to them and making a list of all the reasons these two boys are my idols. it isn’t because they draw on their faces once a year. its because they’re so hardworking, kind, and understanding. despite having such a large fanbase, they have never made us feel beneath them. they do weekly liveshows. they attend as many youtube conventions as they can. they always stop to take pictures with their fans even when they have deodorant in their eyes. i know many people have told me that their only escape from trouble at school and home is youtube, and these two boys never fail to make them happy. and they give many people hope, that one day they’ll find someone that makes them as happy as dan and phil make each other. someone they can truly trust and be happy around.

so please don’t refer to them as two childish video makers; they’re so much more than that. they’re an inspiration to every one of us here, and they’re the reason some of us are here today. so i don’t know if theyre actually changing their branding or not? but these are just my reasons for accepting this change. i want them to finally be recognized as two adults who have found their place in life and are doing what makes them, and the people around them happy.

Omg I’m almost soo close to having 1k followers and I honestly am soooo overwhelmed. I thought a follow forever would be amazing to do to thank all my fave blogs. I’ve had this blog for 2 years and I just wanna say there’s so many people that I wanna thank for getting me this far and staying a mutual for this long after being a strict teen wolf blog in the beginning to becoming a HUGE multifandom mess!!! ❤️❤️🎉🎉 The list below are some of my favorite blogs that I will follow forever and ever!!

Love you all and thank you again!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️💕💕 I DON’T THINK I FORGOT ANYONE

the literature role play network is intended to give role players a medium to talk about books, recommend books and, of course, suggest plots based off our favorite books. personally there are a thousand and one books without a huge tumblr following that i’d love to discuss and rp with others! below are some loose “rules” but i want to stress how much literature as defined here isn’t about “taste.” it doesn’t matter if you read entire libraries full of classics or occasionally check out whatever’s popular on the best seller’s list. as long as you enjoy reading books, you like literature and qualify for the net. 100% inclusive.

rules.

  • reblog this post
  • send me an ask with your name, pronouns, age, mascot, timezone and favorite book
  • track the tag #litrpnet

what you get.

  • people to discuss books with 
  • a spot on the network page
  • free reign over the tag
  • similarly minded writing partners
  • potentially a mini bookclub? book suggestions? 
my kylo headcanons

i think it’s time to start an official list so

  • he loves reassuring, positive touches. people patting him on the back, messing with his hair, hugging him. he misses that stuff even if he doesn’t really realize it yet
  • his favorite color is pink. if you asked him tho he’d say red because it’s close enough
  • he has a huge sweet tooth. whenever he’s on a ship they have to make sure that they have plenty of ice cream and chocolate and stuff for him. he probably keeps skittles or smthn tucked away in that outfit of his for emergencies 
  • there are a lot of little things that trigger his memories of a happier time. he hates them all. he isn’t even consciously aware of why he hates these things so much. it could be in the soft strumming of a guitar coming from the stormtrooper breakroom, whiffs of vanilla and woodsmoke, a sunrise breaking through a line of trees, the spattering of stars that watch him through the viewports as he cries himself to sleep. 
  • his mask is probably specially designed to cover up irregular breathing and stuff like that. wouldn’t want anyone to know that he cries when he gets frustrated 
  • he also definitely used to be (still is??) self-conscious about his looks. 
  • and of course he’s a scorpio sun sign and pisces moon sign
