and i wonder who discovered this

anonymous asked:

I wrote the confession about "Ford vs Yuzuki" and I'd like to thank everyone who commented it: I didn't know anything about Ford's sad childhood, and thank to some comments I discovered it. The day I wrote the confession I decided to trigger Ford's reversal proposal, and I couldn't be more happy: he made to MC a wonderful birthday party and they are such a cute couple! The truth is that EVERY BACHELORS AND BACHELORETTES deserve to be loved in this game!

OP

I know that as a cis lesbian, quite a few people in my group on Tumblr have a tendency to make generalized opinions about other minority groups that they’re not apart of. While I have met many wonderful people on this site like me, I know a lot who, well, aren’t, so I want everyone to know that this is a safe blog for:

-bisexuals/pansexuals

-trans people who are les, gay, bi/pan, hetreoromantic, aromantic or asexual

-asexuals who are les, gay, bi/pan, heteroromantic, aromantic or trans

-people who are questioning their identity

-people who don’t like labels

-lesbians who have dated men in the past 

-lesbians who are currently dating a man, yet too scared to say anything 

-lesbians who discover their identity at any age (it’s never too late/early to realize)

-lesbians who date bi, ace, or trans women

-bisexuals who prefer one gender over another

-bisexuals who CHOOSE to only date a specific gender

-bisexuals whose preferences change

-or, just people whose sexuality is fluid and changes throughout their lifetime

-bisexual people who used to label themselves as lesbians

-lesbians who used to label themselves as bisexual

-trans people who transition

-trans people who choose not to transition

-trans people who transition, yet decide for personal reasons to reverse

-trans people who prefer he/him, she/her, or they/them pronouns

-lbgt+ people who are in the closet

-lbgt+ people who decide to stay in the closet

While I am part of a minority group, I also understand that there are people whose lives I have not lived, so I cannot make judgments about them, whether or not their identity is “valid”, or say who or who can’t “belong”. I can only educate myself and pass that knowledge along.

Radfems/Biphobes/Aphobes do not touch this post. You will be blocked.

If Liz’s memory of that last day before she got blood all over her brain holds up, then these are the things she should remember -

Red told Liz he had a lead on Nik’s death. Liz wonders if that’s connected to who’s holding Tom. She wonders if Tom took a job he didn’t tell her about. 

She discovers the identities of Lena and Pete. Liz knows Pete was wanted for questioning in the murder of Nik. So Liz thinks Tom was investigating Nik’s death. Which, I guess in a way he was.

They find the bodies. Liz is terrified now. 

Tom calls her up sounding all ominous and shady.

Do not tell anyone that we spoke or that you even know I’m okay…. I need to see you alone, all right? Have Rosa take Agnes, go to the house, and make sure that nobody follows you….I figured it out, the whole thing. Why Nik was killed, all of it….Just go to the house. Meet me there, and when it’s safe, babe, I’m gonna explain everything.

So she thinks Tom has figured out why Nik was killed. Who these people are, what’s going on. 

She shows up at the apartment. Tom is tied up, bad guys everywhere. 

Ian says, ‘you must be the wife.’ So she’d get the impression that she’s not the object of his focus. She’s just ‘the wife’ of the focus. Ian asks her name.

Guy walks out with Tom’s duffel bag saying he found it in the kid’s room. ‘It’s all here.’

So Liz would know this guy was after something. Something Tom apparently had. Something he took from these guys. Maybe evidence or something.

Garvey knows Tom won’t stop. In the short time he’s known him, Tom has already double-crossed two people. Red, because Ian thinks Tom just couldn’t help himself and had to id the bones, and himself by running off with the suitcase right away. 

I like to think I’m the kind of man who’d politely ask you to stop this, to let this end here, but I can tell you’re the kind of guy who won’t get the message and stop. So we’re gonna need to make sure you stop.

Ian knifes him. (Ian so has Tom pegged)

Liz gets knocked onto the floor. At this point her head is buzzing. Ian asking Tom to call Reddington is super echoey and faint. But it seems she heard it.

Ian says he’s asking Tom one more time, so this is probably what Liz will think Tom was being tortured for earlier. She might even think that Tom is bravely refusing to betray Reddington. 

Tom says he won’t call.

Ian is going to kill Tom. He just said as much. I’m not sure what leverage he thinks he has with him at this point. Maybe if Tom calls Red he won’t kill Liz? But Tom just saw this guy kill Lena, so I don’t know why he’d believe Ian would grant mercy. 

At this point they’re dead. Maybe Tom can fight them off for a few minutes, but they’re dead. Ian will kill them either way. 

Tom didn’t know Red would be on his way to his house or he wouldn’t have bothered telling Liz to meet him there. So he should have at least done what he did earlier, call Red up and hint at the situation, tell him where they were. 

Tom refuses. So Ian stabs him some more for good measure, just for the fun of it, says they got what they came for - ‘the bag’ - and tells his guys to finish ‘em off and clean the place up. It’s no biggie. He’ll find some other way to contact Reddington. 

And the rest is violence. 


So. What will Liz likely be thinking? 

Probably that while tracking down what happened to Nik, Tom got himself mixed up with Nik’s killers. Killers who showed up in their apartment to retrieve a black duffel bag. Killers who want Tom to call Reddington. 

Liz’s suspicion earlier this season is that someone killed Nik because of his association with her or Red or both. 

Red response - I suppose it’s possible Nik was killed by someone with a connection to me, but I have no idea who or what that connection might be.

This should confirm that suspicion. Nik’s killers asking for Reddington. 

So she’ll probably assume that this is some kind of a war between Ian and Red, and that while investigating, Tom got caught in the crossfire. 

GUYS I FIGURED IT OUT

Okay so you know how in Beauty in the Beast…

This lady can’t afford six eggs, which always struck me as a little odd but I figured maybe that was normal in a poor French village. I mean, look at all the little kids she has; she probably struggles to afford any kind of food that would feed all of them… Right?

But later we discover something interesting about Gaston:

Gaston eats five dozen eggs every day. That’s 60 eggs. SIXTY. Which adds up to 420 eggs per week. No wonder this poor village doesn’t have enough of them to go around!

Gaston, who is very well-respected and successful and probably makes good money from his fabulous hunting skills, is cornering the entire egg market. To feed his addiction, he probably has to constantly go around and buy out every farmer’s supply of eggs, which causes the price on any remaining eggs to skyrocket.

Gaston is singlehandedly destroying the town’s economy.

Way to go, Gaston. You may be popular, but I’m sure that at least the chicken farmers were relieved when you fell to your death.

Cole Sprouse Says Keeping Jughead Asexual Is “Severely Important”
The actor is advocating for the representation on ‘Riverdale.'
By De Elizabeth

Cole Sprouse plays Jughead Jones in the CW’s upcoming Riverdale, a new show reimagining the Archie comic series. Based on the character’s repeated, emphasized disinterest in girls, Jughead has been the focal point of much speculation regarding his sexuality over the course of the comics’ eight decades of publication. As recently as last year, the characters was revealed to be canonically asexual.

With the aging comics’ relevance revitalized via the CW’s Riverdale, many fans are wondering just how much the underrepresented sexuality (or rather, absence of) would be specifically emphasized. And there’s no greater advocate than the character’s actor himself.

“I hope that huge corporations like the CW recognize that this kind of representation is rare and severely important to people who resonate with it,” Sprouse tells Teen Vogue, “That demands representation. It would be a wonderful thing if that were the case.

Sprouse does reveal that the first season of Riverdale will not directly touch on asexuality; however, he does call the show an origin story, where the characters will learn, grow, and discover who they are. In the meantime, Sprouse says he will “keep fighting for this pretty heavily.”

Riverdale airs Thursdays at 9 on the CW.

Cinco de Mayo is about to start, so let's make some things clear:

Hello there! Diego here! (That… that’s seriously my name.) As some of you may know, I am of Mexican origin, and I would like to make a few things clear about May 5th you may or may not be aware about.

1. Cinco de Mayo is NOT the date of the Independence of Mexico.

That’s right! Mexico celebrates its independence in September 16th, or more likely, the night of September 15th, when traditionally they make the traditional Grito de Independencia by midnight, which is a reenactment of the legend of the night revolutionary priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla called mass in 1810 for the people to rebel against the Spanish government.

“Cinco de Mayo” also known as “La Batalla de Puebla” (The Battle of Puebla) is a commemoration of a victory in the battle against French invaders that arrived from the port of the state of Veracruz. Albeit not a strategically decisive battle on the war, it is important on national pride as a moment in which a tiny new country without virtually any funds by the time of 1860s defeated such a super powerful army which were the French.

2. “Sombreros”.

Ah yes.

The “sombrero”.

Just to put it straight: Sombrero just means “hat” in Spanish; at least Mexican Spanish. We tend to call sombrero to any kind of hat, that is if we are not using the word “gorro/gorra” alternatively.

The “sombreros” you usually see in every single stereotype you may imagine are based a mixture of the charro outfit and the way poor proletariats would dress around the dawn of the 20th century whom also were an emblem of the Mexican Revolution of 1910. (Another national celebration that goes in November 20th.) Slavery was already illegal in Mexico, but these people were exploited in a disguised system in which the workers were paid (miserably) and all of their expenses would be controlled in stores they were only allowed to spend at; those stores were also owned by the proprietors of the land they worked at.

The stereotype has been so reflected in so many places inside and outside the border it has even been reclaimed by the Mexican people themselves.

“Oh, so is it okay for me to wear one?”

No.

By the way when I mentioned “charros”, I mean a traditional type of horsemen that follow their own set of etiquettes and styles, and it’s also practiced by women who are not only beautiful but also super badass.

3. Maracas.

I SERIOUSLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH MEXICAN STEREOTYPES AND MARACAS TO BE HONEST.

LIKE, THEY ARE USED IN A FEW CULTURES OF MEXICO SUCH AS THE YAQUIS, BUT OTHER THAN THAT IT REALLY DOESN’T HAVE MUCH OF A CULTURAL BACKGROUND FOR MEXICO. ALMOST ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN LATIN AMERICA, BUT NOT MUCH IN MEXICO.

THEY ARE MORE OF A BRAZILIAN THING.EDIT: Actually no, they are not Brazlian at all either.

Much like the sombrero, if you “went to Mexico” (Tijuana, Cancún, Mazatlán, Rocky Point) and they gave you maracas with vivid colors on them, there is absolutely no cultural importance behind it as souvenir of Mexico. Mexicans love to point at, laugh, and exploit the cultural obliviousness of tourists. Especially American tourists.

*cough*

4. The mustache.

This one is a bit strange, albeit kind of true in some regards.

The mustache is an international symbol of masculinity, and Mexico is a country full of machismo, albeit “caballerosidad” is also one of the qualities in the Mexican etiquette which involves respecting the autonomy and individual identity of women, always approach to a non-violent solution, and a general attitude of politeness to both men and women; that said it is not impossible for a Mexican to be misogynistic as well.

ANYWAY, the mustache is kind of a downhill-snowball stereotype that may have started in just seeing many Mexicans having a mustache, but so do a LOT of American males as well, so uhhhh… it’s a very strange label to pin on Mexicans over all.

5. Tequila.

I actually don’t mind if you drink tequila. You kinda support the economy of my country and it’s an actual cultural thing that I like it when it’s spread around.

Just remember that it is NOT drunk with a worm in it. That is mezcal. Its like tequila’s wilder cousin. And no, it has no mescaline.

6. Other stereotypes.

  • Sugar skulls are a cool thing, I guess. No, they have absolutely nothing to do with Cinco de Mayo, they are part of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) which is celebrated in November 1st.
  • “Do not drink the water” is a weird stereotype I have heard. I would not simply recommend you to drink untreated tap water anywhere. Period. We have water purifiers everywhere.
  • Mexico is what I call a “second world country”. It is not as developed and advanced as the United States, but it IS civilized in a great way we count with continuous technological developments and lots and lots of progressist enthusiasts.
  • Mexico is not proud of drug trafficking. It’s an extremely serious problem that has the entire country terrorized and I am really exhausted of all the attention they get from dumb Hollywood movies rather than the real Mexico. Do not talk about drugs. Do not talk about narcos. This is a very delicate topic that many people overlook the impact it’s had with Mexican people in their identity. Please.

  • I persist. Do not, seriously, DO NOT associate Mexican people with drug dealers, drug lords, “narcos”, or any other extension. If you seriously STILL wonder “what the big deal is”, I dare you to Google “narcos” on the image search and look at all the horrible things they do to the innocents. (It’s seriously fucked up and triggering with blood, gore, body horror shit.)
  • Mexican people have contributed with some groundbreaking contributions to science and technology and the way we are leading our lives. 
  • > Mario J. Molina is a chemist who discovered the causes of ozone depletion in the atmosphere.

    > Guillermo González Camarena patented the first trichromatic TV color transmitter in 1940. 8 years before Peter Carl Goldmark presented it to CBS and took most of the credit.

    > Luis Ernesto Miramontes co-developed “the pill”. Props.

    > Andrés Manuel del Río discovered vanadium in 1801 which is used to strengthen steel further and is applied from bicycles and hardware tools, to dental implants and jet engines.

  • Yes, Mexicans are actually laid back. No, they are not inherently lazy.
  • Mexican people are culturally masters of improvisation and creativity, this leads them to engineer creative solutions to everyday problems. Just felt like sharing this fact.

Ok so this is all I have right off the bat, and I wish you a happy Cinco de Mayo. Have fun, get drunk, party on; I don’t care, we don’t care. Just have these things on mind.

TL;DR: Please do not do/say anything racist.

Thelma Official Trailer 2017
Coming of age movie about a college lesbian who discovers her super powers and sexuality.

I repeat

Lesbian. Super Powers. Female. Superhero.

okay, so. the thing that kills me about Wonder Woman is that it’s so, so absurdist, and in the best way. all of the characters except diana go into the entire thing knowing that the war might never end, that the people in charge of their armies don’t give a flying fuck about what happens to the people on the ground, that everything they do might not even matter in the long run. steve even says when he’s on themyscira that it seems like the world’s going to end.

one of the most famous lines by camus (who was an absurdist) is “in the middle of winter i at last discovered that there was in me an invincible summer.” the entire point of absurdism is staring into the void and saying, “no, i refuse.” the world is empty and bleak and meaningless, and you could choose to be nihilist about that, or you could pick yourself up and create the meaning you want to see. and that’s what all of the characters in wonder woman do.

when he gets in that plane steve knows, he knows, that they still might not win the war. he knows diana might not be able to kill ares. he knows dr. poison might still escape. he knows that people are still going to die. and you know what? he gets in the plane anyway. he stares into the face of a war that might never end and says, well, i can save today. and that is what matters. 

sam and chief and charlie watch their friend run toward a plane and know he’s on a suicide mission (that might not even save the war!) and they yell to stop him at first and then they cover him like he asked them to because even when they hate it, they respect his ability to make his own decisions and they hold up their end of the deal. they risk their lives helping him risk his because it’s what they signed up to. it’s what they should do. 

when diana leaves themyscira, she knows she might not live to come back. sure, her character is driven by a kind of relentless optimism, but it’s a chosen optimism, not a naive one. she might die, but she’ll be damned if she dies doing anything other than what is just, what is her duty as an amazon. her mother says, “what if you never come back?” and diana’s reply is, “who will i be if i stay?”

when steve’s on the plane and it looks like they’re all about to die, all sam and chief and charlie do is they lean in to each other. yeah, the world’s ending, so what are we gonna do? we’re gonna spend those last moments with each other. we’re gonna close our eyes and know that we did all that we could and even if it ends up doing nothing to affect the war as a whole, well, at least we did something.

there’s a story from the holocaust about a group of jews reciting prayers when one stops and says “why are we doing this? we’re about to die. only a madman would say these prayers now.” and the rabbi looks at him and quietly says, “our enemies have taken everything from us, but they cannot take our freedom to say these prayers. we must live as free men temporarily in captivity. that, if necessary, is how we will die.”

the characters in wonder woman push on even when they think it might be pointless, because that is the point. absurdism is about accepting that maybe you’ll never be able to make everything right, you might not even be able to make everything okay, but you can always do something. you can walk into the unending darkness, hold up a lighter, flick it on and say, “i win.” and in doing so, you will have won.

finn: finds the strength to escape from the people who manipulated and abused him since his childhood, immediately befriends both rey and poe and shows selfless concern for rey’s wellbeing on multiple occasions, begs rey to run away with him after knowing her for a day or less, runs across a battlefield to try and save rey from being captured by his abusers, runs to embrace poe upon discovering he’s alive, lies his way on to starkiller base (returning to the people who manipulated and abused him since his childhood) to rescue rey, gives rey his jacket to keep her from being too cold, plants himself between rey and kylo ren to protect her despite having no training with a lightsaber and knowing he could be killed

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Welcome to Season 5

Peralta is going to the pokey! Rosa is going up the river! It’s slammer time! However you want to say it (and we apologize for that last one), two good cops from Brooklyn Nine-Nine are going to prison at the beginning of season 5. After being framed for a bank robbery, Dets. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) will have to fend for themselves behind bars. Rosa is having a slightly easier time adjusting to her new life than Jake is, but then again, her cellmate isn’t a cannibal. Time to eat up these first-look photos from season 5 of Fox’s underrated cop comedy.

“It’s Jake at his most vulnerable and having to live off of his wits,” says executive producer Dan Goor

Charles (Joe Lo Truglio) and Amy (Melissa Fumero) visit Jake in jail. Jake’s buddy is “determined to make sure that his friend’s innocence is known to the rest of the world,” Lo Truglio told EW. “So he’s doing everything he can, he’s tailing Hawkins [Gina Gershon] and he’s trying to take advantage of her making a mistake.”

Um, what’s up with Charles’ hair, which recently turned white when he was stressed out about Jake’s trial? There’s a "wonderful cold open to show his depression, which rivals and — dare I say — surpasses him breaking up with Vivian in the Matrix leather coat cold open,” Lo Truglio told EW.

The squad will consider taking an ethical shortcut to help exonerate Jake and Rosa.

Meet Jake’s new cellmate, Caleb, who is played by Tim Meadows. “Caleb is a cannibal who doesn’t feel like that defines him,” says Goor. “He would rather be defined by his passion, which is woodworking.” Yes, Jake becomes friends with Caleb, partly because he doesn’t know about Caleb’s crime at first. And then…  "we see him discover what his cellmate is actuallyin for,“ says Samberg. We should point out that Caleb is more interested in making friends with Jake than making him into a meal. "They kind of look out for each other,” says Samberg.

Meanwhile, Rosa is doing time in the women’s prison. According to Goor, she “quite enjoys solitary.”

Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) and Terry (Terry Crews), seen here visiting Rosa in prison, are “trying desperately to make her life as good as they can,” says Goor.

Jake will also match wits with a criminal mastermind named Romero (Lou Diamond Phillips). “Jake actually goes looking for protection and Romero is a protector,” says Samberg.

Fun facts from the tf2 comics:

- All of them are millionaires (Demoman’s mom still tells him he needs more jobs anyways)

- Spy is in his late 40s/early 50s (Scout is 27)

- Medic has had 8 souls surgically attached to him (shoutout to that one post about how this is possibly the reason why scout and sniper both went to heaven)

- Demoman lives in a mansion with his mom and the eyelander

- Sniper isn’t Australian (something he himself suspected due to the fact that he never picked fights with people and didn’t have Australia-shaped chest hair)

- Pyro was a CEO

- tf2′s canon with the mercs as we know them in the game takes place between 1968-1972 (with the Gravel War between RED and BLU ending in 1971 and the team being reassembled in 1972)

- Saxton Hale discovered the internet in 1970 to sell his weapons and hats online

- Soldier murdered Tom Jones (even though the actual singer is still alive and well today and i spend most of my time wondering whether or not he knows that he’s dead)

- The mercs are responsible for Teufort’s lead-poisoned water system (a fact that was previously unbeknownst to Soldier, who drinks it anyways) 

- Scout has Tom Jones’ hit song “Sex Bomb” tattooed on his chest. However, “Sex Bomb” wasn’t released until 1999 (12 years after Scout is supposed to die)

- All the promotional “Meet the ____” shorts were a plot by the administrator to spy on the mercs

- Engineer’s grandfather was personally acquainted with the Administrator in 1890 (80 years before tf2′s canon begins)

Not much is known about the creators of our world. Were they humans given the tree of life by the Gods, were they the Gods themselves, or maybe something not quite we can begin to fathom.

The youngest three each found their calling quickly. 

The first one was given the gift of creating magnificent things from death itself, drawing magic from blood. It is believed by many he may have been channeling the Blood God themselves at times.
The second turned to the Sun, and was said to be a deity who the Star itself has given birth to. He channeled the powerful rays of the life star in to energy to give power and warmth to us all.
The third wandered without a calling for some time, until nature beckoned him. Soon, he discovered that his talent lied in the mystical art of Botanica, with which he created wonders we can’t even begin to comprehend.

Here it is, a thing I’ve worked on for a while, what I like to call the Gods and Monsters AU.

I was going to wait until I had the Gents finished, but unfortunately, life happened and they were on standby for quite a while, and I don’t want these bad boys to wait any longer.

@therealjacksepticeye Hi Jack, I’m a little bit late, but I want to congratulate you for achieving 15 million subcribers. :) It’s a crazy number, and when I imagine that I’m a member of a community that has more people than the population of my country is, so it’s incredible. :) But you really deserve it, because I can tell you, that I’m watching youtube for several years, but the whole time I’ve never seen a youTuber who does so much for the people just like you do. :) Although I know that I probably never meet you, but  I really appreciate that I was able to experience this wonderful community, and especially that I could know a person like you. I would hope that you’ll discover my message. :) You’re a nice man Jack and I thank you very much for being there for us. :)

Yuuri is in the kitchen when he hears Victor call it out in question. They had just finished up supper and Victor had cooked so Yuuri was in the kitchen washing up the dishes to return the favor. And he’s just standing by the dishwasher, humming idly and wondering if Victor has picked out a movie for them to watch or if tonight is going to be a night where they watch game shows featuring Victor yelling out the answers that can actually be correct on occasion. It had been a long day at the rink and Yuuri even wonders if maybe they’ll have a nice glass of wine before bed.

So, Yuuri is just minding his own business, not thinking twice when Victor calls out his name. He hums back, expecting a question or statement about leftovers but then…

“What’s yaoi?”

I want to see a world that’s… well, let’s start like Harry Potter, with the secret magical and separate muggle worlds, with muggleborns and halfbloods and purebloods, and kids who make a surprise discovery one day.  Only, I want to see a world where the most powerful magic users, consistently, are the muggleborns.

It’s not a guarantee, it’s not like every muggleborn is stronger than every pureblood, but there’s a definite pattern, and everyone knows it.  Because magic is power, but it’s also wonder; magic is the impossible made real and the awesome spread of all that could be.  And there is no moment in any life more magical than the moment a muggleborn child discovers magic is real.  They will go through their lives forever in the echo of that moment, that knowledge that magic can do absolutely anything and they can do magic.

The purebloods keep up, because they have milennia of history and tradition behind their spells and rituals, and belief is a kind of magic too.  Their magic is dependable, reliable, easy to predict, and that’s useful.

But the big magic, the magic that rips the world apart and puts it back together, the magic that warps time and makes legends, that is the realm of the muggleborns.

Because purebloods view magic like clouds; sometimes they’re pretty, sometimes they’re powerful, sometimes they’re just “ugh I hope it doesn’t rain today, I planned a picnic.”

Muggleborns look at magic and they see wonder, potential, power; they see magic.
