I really like seeing your blog, i'm happy that there is people who think the way you do. Living in a country where immigrants aren't wanted or protected sucks. And its sucks having to live in fear of your mom being taken away from you. And it's just sad seeing so many poc suffer or lgbt suffer but i'm happy seeing people like you. I'm thankful you voice your opinions and educate people about whats happening.

Wishing the best of luck to your mom…. please be careful and know that there are people fighting for you and your mom ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Snape catches you drawing Neville’s name during class.

Y/n - Your Name.
Y/l/n - Your Last Name.
Y/h - Your House.


You absentmindedly doodled on a spare piece of parchment as Snape lectured the room in his typical bad tempered manner. Something about the ‘lack of effort and skill demonstrated in his classroom.’ Not that you - or anybody else - was actually listening. It was ridiculous; if he actually cared about your education he’d stop compaining and actually teach you something.

After a while you looked down at you had drawn. On the parchment sat a loveheart with Neville written in the middle.You giggled. It wasn’t surprising really. Not when you’d had a crush on him for atleast six months. In the corner you could see him and Dean taking about something or other. Neville’s eyes met yours and you looked away, blushing as he gazed at you.You turned back to your parchment and started drawing again, adding flowers around the writing.

Suddenly Snape stood behind you, breathing down your neck.“If you are going to draw names in lovehearts during my class Miss y/l/n, may I suggest that you take your inspiration from someone a little bit smarter than Mr Longbottom. 10 points from y/h.”

The class ended seconds after the words left his mouth. You hurriedly gathered your belongings and dashed from the room, leaving whispers and sniggers in your wake. You’d never been more embarrassed in your whole life.Tears crept to the corner of your eye as you sped away, tripping over your feet as you ran.

“Wait!”

A hand grabbed at your wrist and spun you around. Neville stood infront of you, a look of nervousness covering his face. You froze.

“You umm.. left this behind.” He said, handing you the parchment that was the cause of all this trouble. Slowly, you took the sheet from him and clutched It close to your chest. “Thanks Neville. I’m sorry about earlier. Really sorry. I umm, well…

“Just look at the parchment y/n.” You looked at him, puzzled. “I know what it says Neville.” He took a step closer. “Please, just look.”

Hesitantly, you opened the parchment.

But it wasn’t yours.

Instead, there sat your name drawn in beautifull writing with a rose sitting next to it. You gasped.“That’s what I was drawing during Snape’s class. Dean was making fun of me.”

“It’s really pretty,” you murmured, looking up to see that Neville’s cheeks were as red as yours. Tentatively, you took his hand and laced your fingers with his. He smiled. “You like it?”
“Of course I do,” you replied “it’s yours.”

The distance between the two of you disappeared. Neville pushed a lock of your hair behind your ear. Slowly, you leaned in and connected your lips. You moved softly and sweetly. Both of you pulled away, grinning. Your fingers laced together again as you giggled. “We never would have mentioned this would we?” Neville shook his head. “It’s a good thing we like to draw.”

Looking back now I actually think the first Mass Effect is kinda underrated in some aspects. Sure the combat is wonky, but the dialogue and world building are so well-done that you feel like you're in a real, living world.

Yes! The more I think about it, the more I feel like ME1 is my favorite. Like, exploring the Citadel, getting to understand the culture of these species, the political relationships between them. Learning what the entire Mass Effect world is about is just such an amazing experience. Their vision was honestly so damn cool and ME1 just does a flawless job of educating you about the ME world while also placing you in the shoes of someone who kiiinda has their shit together haha.

Thoughts On Rocknaldo

I think this was a necessary episode, like Gem Harvest. It’s a kids show and these are all good messages for kids (in Gem Harvest it was about how education and tolerance is possible, and your gross family members aren’t always totally irredeemable or ignorant) and here it was about how NOT to be an ally and how to get stuck in exclusionary thinking and jealousy and the desire to be victimized or oppressed when really you have no real reason to. 

In other news I still dislike Ronaldo and hE DOESN’T DESERVE TO BE ‘BLOODSTONE’ I’M BLOODSTONE RONALDO YOU LITTLE BITCH. 

But FR Ronaldo step off.

But FR FR I wanna see more fusions and TBQH I dunno if they’d have gone to the effort of making this: 

(which looks fantastic BTW and is actually the kind of gem cut I wanted for my gemsona? Thanks for the canon render crewniverse that said I have been leaning towards a more trillion shape) if Bloodstone wasn’t going to actually appear at some point and maybe they’ll be the next gem? Or the next fusion? If so who would that be with… Garnet and Peridot? The problem is none of the constituents in that fusion have a gem cut like this, and Lapis’ is vaguely the right shape but hers isn’t faceted. Therefore I can only assume it will have to be a new character and it would be cool if they were an ACTUAL character and not a homeworld snob. Maybe the new Bismuth? I don’t know if season 4 has any more episodes after the next one, but what if the next one is Bloodstone? Or if that’s the start of season 5? That would be a long wait though so I don’t really want to consider it. Either way, it’s great to get a canon heliotrope palette, and I’m excited to potentially see a canon form of my gemsona in a hopefully near episode?

I might also have to redesign my gemsona a bit with these new colours 

Bangtan’s New Album

You don’t understand how thankful I am to Bangtan and other idols and singers who bring up attention to the whole Sewol Ferry Tragedy and the victims from that incident. If you’re unaware about what happened please please please educate yourself before they release the album because I want the fans to realize how big and devastating this situation was in SK. So them making an album based on this is a really big deal.

It wasn’t even the case of them not being trained properly, it was the fact that these students were told to stay inside the ferry by the captain, because they thought it would be the safest thing to do, and most of the students listened and lost their lives. The ones who went outside when the ferry was tilting were the ones who were ‘saved’. The most outrage was caused by the fact that the captain himself got off the ferry first onto a rescue boat without telling the students to leave. So all these kids were inside waiting to be saved (if you really want to there are multiple videos and documentaries of the kids in the ferry, that they recorded).

Families waited for days and weeks begging the government to send out more rescue teams to search for their kids because they were receiving texts from them while the ferry was still going down. But due to the weather and being late (so very dark) not much could be done. The worst and the part that makes me the angriest is that the president may not have even tried her best to rescue these kids, after the whole scandal with her not actually being in charge of the country and leaving her responsibilities to someone else, just ticks me off. (If you don’t know about this situation i suggest you search it up as well because this was another huge huge issue in SK where there was a lot of anger and protests that took place). She had a huge amount of power and to think that instead of trying to help these families and look out for her country she was just laying back and doing nothing is really something that isn’t right.

The main reason I’m writing all this is so that when this album and these songs gets released I want fans to realize how meaningful it actually is and to know the context behind it because there are too many fans who only think about their idols and dramas when thinking about Korea. I want people to understand that Korea is a pretty corrupt country at the moment where it’s not all happy endings and pretty people, there are issues there and some people just don’t seem to want to take the time to read about it or educate themselves on it, all they think about is their ‘oppas’ and ‘unnies’. 

So please pay respect to the families of those who lost their children and friends in that tragedy instead of just thinking about BTS.  #YouNeverWalkAlone

  • somebody: wow! such a nice and warm weather, it feels like spring!
  • me: nice
  • me, muttering under my breath: shut the fuck up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it's JANUARY it's not supposed to be this warm yet!!!!!!!!!!! global warming is HERE and our cold snowy beautiful winters are forever history!!!!!! yet we are doing NOTHING about the case!!!!!!!! and even if we did something trump is the president of united states now and he's going to FUCK everything UP because his climate decisions will affect EVERYBODY!!!ON!THIS!PLANET! this weather is not _NICE AND WARM___ WHAT THE FUCKKK it's the awaiting HELLFIRE THAT'S RADIATING HEAT UPON US SO SHUT UP

so this is basically what i think about the school systems policies on bullying… when i was in like middle school there was this girl who was mentally ill and poor, and she was relentlessly bullied by pretty much all the kids in my school and one day she sat at the only spot open at a lunch table to eat and every kid at the table got up and left, and so like I yelled at them for being fucking assholes because … it was.. obviously fucked up?

and you know what the teacher who saw this did… they rewarded me for doing the literal bare minimum. I got like some voucher for food you could buy at the school instead of getting regular school lunch. 

they didn’t reprimand the students who were being fucking assholes and they literally never asked the girl if she was okay or talked to her about it or tried to stop the bullying themselves, as they stood there the entire time this happened.

They rewarded me … who had absolutely nothing to lose, and was not harmed by any of the actions.

From what I’ve seen in school the teachers literally don’t care about the victims of bullying, they simply want to act like they do lmao. In my experience everything they do to stop bullying is performative, nothing more.

I’d even go as far as to say some teachers actively engage in, and encourage, bullying. Lets be honest, it’s been said before, people are bullied typically because they’re members of marginalized groups, and the fastest way for a teacher to become liked by the majority of their students is to pick on the kids they already know the other students hate.

Teachers absolutely have something to lose when defending marginalized children, and they’d rather appeal to those students who aren’t marginalized because it makes their job easier when the majority of their students like and respect them.

imagine us getting a conversation with even and vilde where they discuss bisexuality/pansexuality and vilde is pretty clueless and asks the wrong questions like “i thought you were gay?” “vilde i dated a girl for 4 years” “i know that i just…” “thought i was faking the whole time?” and we get a character thats attracted to multiple genders discussing what it means to him and not to mention its male representation!! (*whispers* and it’s a lead into vilde’s discovery that she like girls sshhh)

The Doctor Donna

“average ancient greek general founded 3 cities named after himself” factoid actualy just statistical error. the median greek general founded 0 cities named after himself. Alexander the Great, who conquered the Achaemenid Persian Empire and founded over 10,000 Alexandrias in his lifetime, was a statistical outlier adn should not have been counted

Hogwarts headcanon time:

Everyone seems to think that all the hidden corridors and moving staircases are intentional, because the founders were a bit insane (which is true). But what if most of it wasn’t intentional? What if it’s the cumulative result of generations of young witches and wizards learning magic and all the stray magic floating about?

Like, what if that one stair poor Neville keeps getting stuck in was the result of someone trying to pull a prank on their friend in 1824 and no one could figure out a counter curse? Or the moving staircases were the result of too many jinxes and missed spells and no one really knows why they move or when they started (but Hermione did find the first recorded instance of a moving staircase in 1532 in Hogwarts, a History)

I feel like all those quirks in the castle are much more the result of the school just being so saturated with magic and mischief that it’ll never be a remotely normal building again.

Donald Trump wants to eliminate the Department of Education.  That’s not a joke, I’m not being misleading.  More than once he said he wants to make this happen. Please click the read more below to see just some of the consequences.

—Using official budget figures from the Department of Education, CAPAF’s full analysis shows just how far reaching the impact of Trump’s proposals could be on students, teachers, and families. Our analysis examined the largest programs that the agency runs in order to demonstrate what their elimination would mean for the country and for each state. Nationally, according to that analysis:

  • 8 million students every year would lose Pell grants
  • 490,000 or more teacher positions could be eliminated
  • $1.3 trillion in student loans would be at risk
  • 9 million low-income students would lose $15 billion of Title I funding annually
  • 5 million children and students with disabilities would lose $12.7 billion used every year to ensure that they receive a quality education
  • 750,000 or more students from military families, Native American students, students living in U.S. territories, and students living on federal property or Native American lands would lose $1.1 billion per year for their schools
  • 4,000 or more rural school districts would lose more than $175 million used annually to help improve the quality of teaching and learning in many hard-to-staff schools
  • $700 million used by states to support the 5 million English language learners currently in public schools — representing close to 10 percent of all students — would be cut

I want to point out, 750,000 or more students from military families.  Soldiers and their children will struggle because of this.

I want to point out 4,000 or more rural school districts would struggle. 

The working class.  The military.  The farmers of America.   These are the people who supported Trump.  And he’s going to drop them in a heartbeat, because he doesn’t even understand how the education system works.  Or he does, and he doesn’t care.

***Edit: I went ahead and added the cleaned-up versions; I hope no one minds. I just didn’t want anyone to have to dig up a new post just to hit “like” again. I really can’t believe this has so many notes! Thanks guys! >////< ***

Originals are under the cut!


These are suuuuuuuuper super sucky. I may clean them up later or something… I just had to get them out.

Yay to tonight’s episode for destroying me slowly. Like, I didn’t have a huge emotional reaction to it on first viewing, but it planted seeds in my brain that just keep growing. I thought of all the other fusions and when they’d fall apart, versus when they seemed really focused/harmonious. I’m sure they all have different things they need to work on.

Meanwhile Garnet is Best Fusion Teacher. And that song will probably become my new way of dealing with panic attacks.
