and i've been ill as well

As much as there’s a large community of people who really want to see Jughead as asexual, and I am a huge proponent for that kind of representation, there’s also quite a large community of avid Archie fans that want Betty and Jughead to be together, too,“ Sprouse said. "I think these are things we need to juggle when considering what Jughead is in Riverdale.

This is a new universe, this is a new take on Jughead, and he is this tortured damaged kid — this Holden Caulfield — who is looking for someone who can relate to him on a personal level and that narrative itself is also beautiful. While I think that [asexual] representation is needed, this Jughead is not that Jughead. This Jughead is not Zdarsky’s Jughead and this Jughead is not the aromantic Jughead.

This Jughead is a person who is looking for a kind of deeper companionship with a person like Betty..and Betty ends up being this super nurturing, caring, catering person that with Jughead’s super screwed-up past they end up diving into each other and it ends up being a beautiful thing. How are people going to respond? Truthfully, they’re probably going to be quite incendiary about it at first. Do I think that’s ill-placed? No. Do I think they should give it a shot? Yeah, I do, because I think that after filming thirteen episodes, it makes sense to me and if it makes sense to me as the person who’s dumping so much time and so much argumentation into trying to represent Jughead correctly, it will make sense to other people as well.

20 Questions for Ed Sheeran, January 25, 2017.
  • Interviewer: What's the most exciting thing in life right now?
  • Ed: Uh, the new album. Coming out third of March.
  • Interviewer: What are you completely tired of right now?
  • Ed: Uhh... I dunno. Walking Dead. I can't seem to get into it. I'm on season four and it's just, I haven't-
  • Interviewer: I'm there as well! Which episode are you on right now?
  • Ed: I'm on like episode five? They're all ill and they're coughing up blood, and-
  • Interviewer: Oh, yeah. It gets better though. Keep on watching it bro.
  • Ed: See, everyone's been saying that, but I've watched like sixty episodes now, and I'm like, I can't quite... so yeah, I'm trying to get through it.
  • Interviewer: What song took you the least amount of time to write?
  • Ed: Thinking Out Loud.
  • Interviewer: What's the first thing that you do when you get an idea for a song?
  • Ed: Uhh, I shut the doors and go away from people.
  • Interviewer: If you could teach one subject at a school, what would it be?
  • Ed: Music. I'm actually going back to teach music at my old school soon.
  • Interviewer: Beautiful, I like that. Did you ever have detention during growing up and going to school?
  • Ed: 'Course, all the time.
  • Interviewer: All the time? Every day?
  • Ed: All the time.
  • Interviewer: What's your favorite drink?
  • Ed: Uhhh... beer. Ale. Like ale. Good, good English ale. Does Finland do good ale?
  • Interviewer: I don't know about that. Not so good. It's okay, but I think it's better in England.
  • Ed: Yeah. You can't drink too much of it though 'cause it's so heavy, it just, I just fall asleep. So I have three and I fall asleep. But the first one is like... glorious.
  • Interviewer: What's your favorite food?
  • Ed: ...Fish and chips? I reckon. Fish and chips. If you give me a fish and chips and an ale, pfft, game over. That's my day.
  • Interviewer: That's perfect. That's heaven. What's one thing you need to have in your fridge always? No matter what-
  • Ed: Ketchup.
  • Interviewer: Ketchup? With fish and chips.
  • Ed: I've actually refused to eat fish and chips when there wasn't any ketchup. I just think it's a travesty.
  • Interviewer: I get that. What's your favorite movie of all time?
  • Ed: Goodfellas.
  • Interviewer: Oh that's a good one. Classic. Favorite TV show?
  • Ed: A show called Love/Hate actually. It's an Irish TV show, like Gangland Dublin. It's amazing.
  • Interviewer: What's the funniest thing you've ever read about yourself on the internet?
  • Ed: That I introduced Adele and her husband Simon. Um, 'cause I do - I now - know them, but like when that came out I, well I'd met Adele, but I'd never met Simon. So I don't know how I could've introduced them.
  • Interviewer: Would you love to work with Adele?
  • Ed: Yeah. I don't think anyone's going to work with Adele. I think Adele kind of doesn't want to work with anyone. I think she does her own thing. So yeah, I think I'd say yes but I don't think it would ever happen.
  • Interviewer: What's the best way to relax for Ed Sheeran?
  • Ed: Sleep. Always a good way, yeah.
  • Interviewer: That's what I do as well. Name one thing you can't live without.
  • Ed: Um. My cats.
  • Interviewer: How many cats do you have?
  • Ed: Two. And they're GREAT.
  • Interviewer: Are you thinking about getting a third one?
  • Ed: I think it'd be unfair. They're sisters, so if you add another cat into the mix it might get weird.
  • Interviewer: What scares you the most?
  • Ed: Uh, heights. Yeah.
  • Interviewer: Me too, I'm afraid of heights. Have you ever done a bungee jump?
  • Ed: I did, yeah. I hated it. Have you done it?
  • Interviewer: Really, you did it?! So you've probably beat that then.
  • Ed: No, no it's made it even worse. Even worse, yeah. Never do it.

  • Interviewer: So you've been there, like-?
  • Ed: Once. But it was one of the best places I've ever been to.
  • Interviewer: Have you ever been to Finland?
  • Ed: Yeah. I've been to Finland, yeah. I think I played a small show in Finland once.
  • Interviewer: If you were in a boyband, what would the band's name be?
  • Ed: Wrong Direction.
  • Interviewer: [Laughs] Wrong Direction, I love that. What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
  • Ed: Always be nice to people.
  • Interviewer: That's cool. It works out every time. If you could work with any artist in the world, who would it be?
  • Ed: Beyonce. Beyonce. I have worked with her before, but not on an original song.
  • Interviewer: Could you name three things that make you happy right now? This Wednesday.
  • Ed: Uh, my cats. Pictures of my cats. And hearing about my cats. I like my cats. Three things.
  • Interviewer: [Laughs] What's the biggest no-no purchase you've ever bought?
  • Ed: No-no? Astin Martin. Astin Martin, yeah. I only drove it a couple of times.
  • Interviewer: Really?! How much was it?
  • Ed: It wasn't cheap. I feel like, I felt... I got it, and I felt cool. And then I felt like an idiot. I don't think sports cars are for me.
  • Interviewer: Do you still have it?
  • Ed: I do still have it, yeah. I let my manager's wife drive it. She uses it.
Huge Rant

So I just watched the trailer for 13 Reasons Why on Netflix. I’ll preface this by saying that this is one of my favorite books because of how it sheds light on how no matter whether you mean to or not, you have an impact on someone else’s life. That being said, here is why Netflix has capitalized on mental illness issues and bullying. (Spoilers will be included if you want to stop reading)

#1-This book is about suicide and the impact of others on the victim. It is NOT a “mystery” of her death. We know what happened. It’s clearly stated in the beginning of the book how and why she killed herself.

#2-It is very obvious from the trailer that there will be a heater romance in the show. THAT IS NOT THE POINT OF THE STORY!!! But naturally the heteronormative and ignorant society we live in today makes that budding relationship absolutely imperative apparently.

#3-Lastly, the trailer shows immediately that the people who wrote this do not care about sticking to the book because of how incorrectly they portray the relationship between the victim and the main character.

This book has always been very important to me and I’m sure many others as well who have struggled with mental illness and have thought about or even attempted suicide because of the actions of others. It pisses me off to no end that Netflix would allow this to be made.

hi, i've been ill for the past two days and i need fluff so could u rec me lots of drarry fluff?

I’m sorry you’re not feeling well! So I don’t read an awful lot of fluff, but here are some really fun, clever fics that should help make you feel better :)


Lucky (who_la_hoop): It’s a choose your own adventure story! You decide what Draco will do next, and watch as his adorable exploits unfold.

Draco Malfoy: Toilet Supremo (who_la_hoop, 26k): Harry’s a bit startled when he opens his door and finds a haughty Draco claiming to be a toilet salesman (a supreme toilet salesman) standing there. 

101 Ways to Heal Your Wizarding Woes (Or, an Unfortunate Incident with a Traffic Cone and a Policeman’s Helmet) (who_la_hoop, 26.5k): Draco’s mother gives him a book to try to deal with his anxiety and lingering resentment about Harry. He ends up accidentally sending Harry letters chronicling his complaints, leaving Harry quite puzzled indeed. 

In the Company of a Rubber Duck (birdsofshore, 35k): For his community service, Draco has to spend time as a rubber duck in Harry’s bath (amongst other things). Harry finds that Draco’s colorful commentary isn’t as unwelcome as he would have expected. 

Aural Gratification (birdsofshore, 11k): Harry’s listening to a Wizarding book on tape, and the narrator’s posh, arrogant voice is getting him all hot and bothered. 

Daydream Series (Faith Wood, 12k): Draco buys 100 Patented Daydream charms, featuring one very sexy Harry Potter, and spends his days fantasizing (and wanking). 

Who Shagged Harry Potter? (Faith Wood, 6.5k): After getting drunk at a Slytherin party, Draco wakes up and is shocked to find a naked Harry sleeping in the Slytherin dorm. The Slytherins try to determine who shagged Harry the night before.

Ferocious Determination, Insufficient Deliberation, and a Slightly Wrong Destination (Faith Wood, 9.5k): Draco is most surprised when he Apparates to his bed, only to find that it’s somehow transformed itself into one wet and naked Harry Potter.

The Four Ds of Apparition (or: Destination, Determination, Deliberation, and Dicks) (@eidheann and @firethesound, 36k): Auror Harry has to solve the case of the copious cocks and figure out who’s been sending dildos to a Ministry official.

The Critiquer (dysonrules, 24k): Draco is a professional cock critiquer. Harry gets drunk and sends some dick pics to Draco’s newspaper, and is most disgruntled with the grade he receives. 

The Charm Conundrum (dysonrules, 8k): Draco finds Harry’s copy of Twelve Fail-safe Ways to Charm Witches, and decides to see if it also works on Chosen Ones.  

The Name on Your Forehead (@aroaceteddy, 10.5k): Glitter bombs are going off that cause your crush’s name to appear on your forehead. Guess who’s anxious about this development? 

Dragon Tamer (jennavere): Draco asks Harry to pretend to be his boyfriend to avoid an arranged marriage. What follows are drunken recitals of Madonna songs, getting shagged silly, and bunnies named Draco Lucius Malfoy III. 

Painting Potter’s Portrait (Yo_mama, 10k): Pornographic paintings of Harry and Draco spring up all over town, leaving Harry quite flustered (and Draco quite smug). 

ok real talk there’s a huge problem with the way fandom treats discussion of harry’s ptsd. my recent post about various characters helping him manage it post-war was derailed several times by people complaining ‘but c’mon there’s no way he was the ONLY one with ptsd’ and ‘but what about all the others!!! what about harry helping THEM out!! can’t they all help each OTHER!!! let’s talk about that!’ and it’s not only annoying and distracting but also false.

it’s extremely frustrating because i think, in the same way many people believe depression = being sad, a lot of fans are confusing ptsd with ‘having normal issues after trauma.’ and look i’m not the headcanon police okay? you think ginny might have developed it after the war? cool. you have a character that you identify with that you’d like to believe might have struggled with it? awesome. but let’s get something straight: post-traumatic stress disorder is a very real anxiety-based mental illness with specific diagnostic criteria and there is canonical evidence that harry dealt with it.

facing trauma is common, having ptsd as a result is incredibly uncommon; statistically speaking, there is only a 7-8% chance of a person developing it, according to studies based on the us population. of course the weasleys and hagrid and everyone else had issues after the battle. of course they all had stuff to process. the war was shitty for everybody. but ptsd is what happens when the mind, instead of following a relatively typical path through recovery from trauma, gets stuck in a cycle of anxiety that makes it very difficult to move on from that trauma.

it’s highly likely that the prolonged neglect and abuse harry suffered as a child, if not in fact causing a form of ptsd itself, effectively re-wired his stress and panic responses (being abused as a child can prime certain people to develop ptsd). by the time harry gets to hogwarts there’s evidence that he’s probably already dealing with depression and ptsd (trouble eating/sleeping, nightmares, trouble focusing, anger, obsessive and reckless behavior, etc). add to that everything that happens to him throughout his years at school (constantly being in life-threatening situations, being severely injured and attacked emotionally and physically, not only experiencing but personally witnessing the deaths of friends and loved ones) and it would practically be a miracle if he wasn’t suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. and the fact that people feel the need to take a post that talks about a character’s friends and family helping him through the difficulties of his mental illness and turn it into a discussion about how instead maybe HE should focus on THEM is frankly disgusting???

tl;dr harry potter’s battle with ptsd and depression is incredibly important & he doesn’t have time for ur bullshit lmao bye
