I don’t have to pretend to have a horse, because it is a horse. Like the Fjord it’s an old breed (the Fjord is an ancestor actually), and they were horses before “tall” horses even were a thing. Their strong build and bone-structure are another reason why it’s fair to call them horses, for they can easily carry adults. Just like a Fjord horse. And there’s the simple naming factor: if I look in any horse encyclopedia I’ll find both the Fjord and the Icelandic with a ‘horse’ behind the name. Same with Wikipedia. Not pony. Horse. So excuse me if I call them by their breed name, Icelandic horse, and sorry that I and many others with me do consider them horses. There’s nothing about them that makes them lesser compared to taller breeds.
I currently have A LOT OF FEELINGS about your head/heart/hands-edit for Micro/Karen/Frank and thought now would be the perfect time to remind you of how spot-on that has proven to be. <3
ALKHDSFLAK I FORGOT ABOUT THAT! I’m flailing over that now omg. The show delivered so much and more on our Micro hopes/expectations; now when are Micro and Karen going to meet!!! Honestly, my #1 reason for wanting Karen in S2, lol
This afternoon I went into my local park to visit my favourite trees, and discovered this. It’s apparently the remnants of somebody’s ritual: hundreds of fake fabric petals, pieces of wood wrapped in cord, empty herb sachets and several BATTERY OPERATED CANDLES.
This so, so fucking irresponsible and unacceptable, I’m sorry. I don’t know how many solitary and group rituals I have partaken in that were held outside but went to great lengths to leave the absolute minimum trace of our being there. Other people love and enjoy and use and worship these areas.
And if you want to do your ritual outside - why? Because you want to be close to nature? Then you have to take some responsibility, make an effort and make sure whatever you does has no negative effects on the natural world. Don’t leave things that are non-biodegradable, polluting or dangerous to animals like items with BATTERIES in. Have some consideration and don’t force other people who actually give a damn about the wellbeing of the area to pick up after you.
If you think clean up is too hard, don’t do the ritual outside. End of discussion.
okay so like unpopular opinion, and its probs not the time bc i’ve had 1.5 very large margaritas (yes, its a wednesday, and yes, i do have work tomorrow) but i’ve had 1.5 very large margaritas and i do not care, so:
i cannot believe that jkr thought severus snape and peter pettigrew were sympathetic characters worthy of redemption, and that draco malfoy was not
like???? draco was a child for so much of the series! they were all children! and of course he made terrible choices and of course he did things that were wrong. but how can you compare him to snape and pettigrew and find him lacking? snape betrayed a woman he claimed to love out of a desire for acceptance and abused her son for years. pettigrew betrayed his best friends who would have died for him, which ended with one in jail, one dead, and the other destitude, and then he went and betrayed them all AGAIN 13 years later!
draco joined voldemort for his family, because he was raised to be this way, because he loved his parents and wanted to do what his father wanted. he wasn’t happy! he didn’t enjoy it! and no, that doesn’t make his actions any better, it doesn’t make the terrible things okay.
but he betrayed voldemort in the end! he wasn’t evil or cruel, he was awful, sure, but those things are worlds apart.
just. how can you look at grown men who betrayed the people closest to them, again and again, for selfish reasons, and look at a teenager who did horrible things because he loved his family, and say the former is more deserving of redemption and forgiveness than the latter? how???
honestly i’ll fight jkr and anyone who disagrees with this post in a denny’s parking lot at dawn
Alright shame is fucking over, my dudes. Cringe culture is dead. I went and fucking murdered it, there you go. This blog is a super safe space, I’m fucking tired y’all.
Enjoy whatever the fuck you wanna enjoy as long as you’re not hurting others or being toxic human garbage about it. Make Mary Sue characters, and OCs that are super extra in any fucking way you want. Watch kid’s cartoons who cares. Listen to whatever music your earholes find pleasant. You wanna wear a Victorian corset outside? Shit’s fucking awesome man. Wanna be a goth queen? Or king? Fuck yeah my dudes. Wanna write/draw a clichéd romantic triangle? Wanna self-insert? Wanna reader-insert? Yeah go right ahead. You like that thing literally everyone else likes? Awesome. You dislike the thing everyone else loves? Awesome who cares. Wanna be a fucking flying unicorn farting rainbows all over the land? Follow your dreams, namaste.
What’s that? Cringe culture? Don’t know what that means.
Bullying? Harassment? Douchebaggery? Assholes sitting atop their stupid high horses? Nah son here we don’t.
