and the fighting continues~

Headcanon:

Lena, Veronica AND Lucy went to boarding school together. 

When Lois describes Lucy in Smallville we know that Lois got towed around the country as an army brat and Lucy was shipped off to bordering school (prep school in Europe) on a scholarship. 

I think that our Lucy Lane of Supergirl pulled her life together since seeing her at 16(?) in Smallville when she was trying to scam money out of people to our current Lucy Lane. She went from this

to this

(I’m so proud of her)

The three of them went to school together, knew of each other but were never close, never friends.  Lucy has heard rumblings that Lena had taken over her brother’s company. She watches the news and has read Kara’s articles in the CatCo magazine, so she knows that Lena Luthor is living in National City. But she never imagined she would see her. 

When she had called Alex and Kara to let them know she would be in town they had immediately made plans with the group to go to the bar. Kara had mentioned she was going to ask someone to come along but Lucy never expected that someone to be Lena. Alex never mentioned that Kara and Lena had become friends. Not that she had a reason to, she didn’t know that Lucy and Lena had gone to school together in Europe. Why would she, Lucy never talked about it and its not like they were friends. 

Boarding school hadn’t been Lucy’s worst experience but it definitely was not the best either. She simply had not prepared herself for four years of memories to come walking through the bar in a pencil skirt and stilettos. Lucy had not expected to be faced with memories of their unspoken academic rivalry. She had not expected to remember the one time Lena and Lucy had ever actually talked to each other. If that’s what you could even call it. Lena had walked into the bathroom to find a crying Lucy. Instead of ignoring her, Lena had sat down on the floor next to her and made sure she was alright, then helped her fix her make up, helped carry her books back to her locker, and disappeared. They nodded to each other in the hallway after that but never talked again. It was Lucy’s only public break down she had had there. Their fight for top of the class continued, even though Lena always maintained her spot at number one. 

Lena stood at the end of the table, the two of them staring at each other as Kara got out of the booth to let Lena slide in. They both changed a lot since boarding school, no longer covered in bright pink and solid black. Their staring contest lasting so long it brings the table to an awkward silence as Kara stands to the side for Lena to sit, being the first one to speak up. 

“Do you two know each other?”

Everyone has potential, everyone has a chance of doing something amazing. By continuing to fight, you extend your potential and have a higher chance of doing something amazing, like helping many others. Or helping yourself. We know not what the future holds, but seeing your ability to always be able get back up and continue fighting, and with the amount of friends you have gathered through your abilities, I'd say you have a very high potential of doing something amazing. Let us all go and see.

These days

I miss the sun; true long good stretches where the garden must be watered every day to survive, where the warmth lulls me midday into a drug-like easy happiness. I miss evenings so mild that I forget life is more than just good and how hard it is for me to live in the moment. 

I am caught this week in a weird, dreary place that matches the weather. In a continued effort to fight my old bad habits I am stuck, sitting cross-legged with them in a circle like a children’s game. What do you do if you are not willing to do things the old bad way but you don’t know what the new good way is? You sit there and do nothing. You sit there with your demons and you feel pretty crappy because you want them to go away. 

The time my childhood best friend secretly carried on an affair with the great love of my life, all the while he was trying to get back together with me. The woman I would have trusted with my life. I think a part of me sees her in every other woman now. What do I do with that? And what about that marriage thing, those years where everything I did was wrong and unworthy and even my tears were punished? The subtle unavailability of the men that have been in my life. What do I do with that?

I am wading through this; I am fighting my instinct to lash out and push away and am instead working to clear a new path. I feel like I’m just sitting here, not knowing what to do.

A great many years of subtle messages that I am unworthy. It’s the little things that make that message feel so real. But it’s not real, is it? Because we’re all worthy and lovable. Certainly I am. 

Here is something, finally good and true and I am loved and I am more than accepted but adored and free. I don’t want to let my demons anywhere near this. 

So I sit, quietly, until I know how to go forward in a better way. I sit with my pain and observe it and put my hand to my heart and hold on. 

And the cat, she sits near me, quietly standing guard at the end of the chaise and the foot of the bed and in the doorway. That sort of quiet presence helps.

Dwarf Fortress Fun Fact:

If you have some enemies turn into undead via a cloud of eerie ash (or other substitute), they sometimes will continue to fight each other even after they’re all dead, then they’ll wander off the map. Easy peasy!

More fun fact: Should you see something weird on the now-dead bodies of the merchant caravan that showed up literally inside an ash cloud and instantly reanimated, double check to make sure it’s not particulates from the ash cloud. If your dorfs touch those with their bare, grubby hands, they will absolutely turn into zambies, sending your fort into an instant spiral of reanimation and terror!

You know, for future reference, since apparently I forgot syndrome dust is a thing.

Where will Juggie and Betty's story line go for season 3? Where do you see them headed long-term? Because the boy has heart eyes for Betty only.

As I keep saying, I see them as endgame and I think Jughead’s involvement with the Serpents WON’T be a negative thing. I hoping he takes pictures of how decrepit Southside high is and he and Betty continue to solve mysteries and fight crime and corruption…..

THAT’S where I see their story headed…..

s a f f i e

But baby, I want you to keep going.
I wanna see you try.
Even if the world is dying,
I want to see you fight.

I can’t give you promises,
no words will ever keep you safe.
But I need you to stand up.
To change the ways of your fate.

When everything is falling,
I want you to smile.
As the world goes crazy,
you need to run that extra mile.

I want you to keep going.
I wanna see you try,
And if you are leaving,
I’ll continue your fight.

The  Trump administration deleted the EPA’s climate change website. So, Chicago published it instead.

  • The city of Chicago this weekend added a new climate-change page to its website, and if it sounds familiar it’s because the information on it comes from the climate page the Environmental Protection Agency used to have — until the Trump administration deleted it last week.
  • “While this information may not be readily available on the agency’s webpage right now, here in Chicago we know climate change is real and we will continue to take action to fight it,” the page reads. Read more (5/8/17)

Things you should know about UMG (Universal Music Group)

This is a massive entertainment company that owns DefJams the label BTS is actually signed under. This isn’t the first time UMG have engaged in controversial and indiscriminate copyright acts. They have removed content from Artist Prince, abused copyright acts with company Digital Millennium Copyright Act and even muted singer Katherine Jenkins rendition of the British national anthem God Save the Queen.

The reason why this is important is because they are not learning from their mistakes and could potentially ruin BTS chances of reaching a larger audience since reaction videos, lyric videos and dance tutorials contribute to Bts recognition and also affect their social chart for Billboard. They are unfairly copyrighting content related to BST that is not Japanese, and claiming aspects of BST to be from them when in fact it originated by a KOREAN company Leon entertainment which created the BST MV and therefore have copyright claim not UMG

We cannot let this happen and need Bighit to be aware of the consequences it could have for Bts especially since YouTube content is such a major reasons for their interaction with global fans.

Guys please spread this as this is a BIG ISSUE especially if not dealt with now as it can affect Bts future MV and fan made content. Some army’s have already began spreading the hashtag #UMGdon'ttouchbts and I encourage fellow army’s to work together and make this a worldwide trend so we can stop them fro taking advantage and using bts.

UPDATE: Army’s you truly are the best fandom because of our complaints videos have begun to be unblocked, I hope they continue to unblock all the videos they wrongly removed. Fighting!
Nine Months - Harry Styles Imagine

No piece of mine has never had as much interest surrounding it as this one has, so thank you for expressing your excitement to me. I hope you’ll find it was worth the wait. (Protip: if you’re reading on mobile, ditch the app and read on Safari or Chrome instead, as the app is prone to close on longer pieces of text).

This one is dedicated to @permanentcross, simply because she’s the best. E has listened to me ramble on and on about this story for longer than anyone should have to. She’s the inspiration behind many things beneath the cut, all of which I will leave up to your own interpretation. 

Without further adieu, I present you with Nine Months…

Guess Miley Outgrew her J's

So Miley had to step away from hip hop?

“I’m in the club high off purp with my shades on..” MILEY?

Miley, “ I don’t listen to that kind of music.” When people inquired about the references in Party in the USA. Only to find herself twerkin in a frog suit with black women behind her years later, Miley?

Miley, who was propelled forward and profited off the appropriation of hip hop culture and her relationship with a black producer, Miley?

Did she return her J’s (I’m asking for the culture.)

Girl cop a squat on your wrecking ball and swing the fuck out my face….you were never apart of this. You used hip hop culture to progress your, “ I’m just trying to be me… agenda” on the backs of black and brown women who are still shamed for the very things you were applauded for. All while those women continue TIRELESSLY FIGHTING THE MISOGYNY PRESENT NOT JUST IN THE WORLD, BUT IN THE HIP HOP CULTURE THEY LOVE.

You couldn’t “step away” fast enough, cause it was all good when you were getting pulled on stage to twerk and collecting your check….

I support anyone that is willing to speak out against misogyny. But I’m sick of these fair weather white feminist and their endless parade of bullshit. Quick to condemn hip hop but have nothing to say about the misogyny present in country music. Quick to claim feminism while dismissing scores of black and brown women who’s voices and concerns they actively attempt to invalidate.

Now to address another matter.

Can we STOP giving out passes to the cookout so prematurely….

Can we just talk about how much Touka has grown as a person???

At the beginning of TG, she was so impulsive and seemed to not have too much value in her own life. 

After the death of Hinami’s mother what did she do? Went and tried to kill the investigators on her own. No back up. No one knowing where she was. Coming back beat up. Only really considering things once Kaneki showed more interest in her being alive than she did. 

But now look at her, standing her ground and thinking things through. 

When shown the hand and told it was Yoriko’s hand, she didn’t lash out. Instead she stayed calm, acted as if she had no idea who Yoriko was, and focused on the fight at hand boo puns. She could have gotten angry and lost focus, which is probably what Mutsuki was hoping for, but she didn’t. 

Also acting as if she didn’t know who Yoriko was is so smart of her. Whether or not that is in fact her hand, Touka acting as if there is no connection between them will keep Yoriko safe and unconnected to the ghoul world. This is something she would have had to think of on the spot, in the middle of a life or death battle.

Touka could have also stayed and continued to fight Mutsuki but she took the first opportunity to get her and Kaneki to safety. Touka from the start of tg would have tried to fight her way out and feel like she running away was the wrong thing to do. 

She made a place for Kaneki to come home to, is ready to fight at his side, but also knows when to run away.

She has grown both smarter and stronger. I’m so proud of her.

Cuando persigas una meta y te suponga una gran dedicación, quéjate. Dí que te parece muy duro, que es demasiado esfuerzo… Desahogate cuanto necesites. Porque por mucho que te estés quejando, seguirás continuando. Pero que nunca se te pase por la cabeza rendirte.

(2/3) “I was the youngest one in the camp. I felt very happy at first. I didn’t have to cook anymore. I was having new experiences. The guerrillas taught me rules. They taught me how to use weapons. They told me that we were fighting for the poor. All of it sounded very good. But then basic training began and it was very difficult. I started to miss my family. My father’s birthday came around, and I could not stop thinking about him. They sent me to another camp because my father kept searching for me. I spent eight years with the guerillas. We lived in the mountains. I slept on the ground. I didn’t get a salary. The fighting was continuous. The army would bomb us day and night. And I didn’t speak to my family for a full seven years. I always wondered what happened to them. Finally it got to be too much, and I decided to desert.”

The people for Tony Stark?

Okay, I was talking with my sister about how awesome it would be if in the wake of Civil War, that the people/public in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, EVERYWHERE! Just showed a subtle but strong solidarity for Tony Stark/Iron Man using what Tony is super into. Technology.
Like, picture this:
Hashtags; Tony is trending for MONTHS.
“I stand for the man that stands with me👏🏽 #IStandWithTonyStark #CaptainAmericaWho?”
“#IronMan with a #ironwill for the people and what’s right!”

People view the footage of the airport battle from the grainy cameras posted all over like crazy because someone uploaded it to YouTube. It’s not the best but you can see how team cap just didn’t pull any punches and how Tony had tried to talk despite not hearing what he’s saying. He looks broke , trying to hold everything together.
People lose their minds when they see Cap’s team charge first and when Rhodes falls from the sky and Tony dives after him.
The comments light up and bbbuuuuurrrrrnnn team cap.
“lmao what a fucking joke. tony is trying to talk to him and do you see this guys body language? he’s not hearing anything. Dude wouldn’t even listen to a team member let alone 117 countries”
“LOOK AT THEM, THEY LET THE HYDRA WITCH BITCH ON THEIR TEAM IN NOTHING FLAT BUT GOD FORBID THEY LISTEN TO IRON MAN”
“Yooo, legit they just kept flying after seeing War Machine go down like that? I saw Falcon turn around but I don’t care man, you’ve LIVED and FOUGHT with this dude and he’s obviously seriously hurt and you just keep flying away in the jet you stole??? Cowards. Pathetic.”
“They really look like they’re trying to kill the real heroes. Fuck I’m glad we have Iron Man and Co. with us”

People organize a day online; through tumblr, twitter, insta, Facebook, any way to get the news out that you wear red on this day and you just subtly grab a pen and draw a circle in your palm for a repulsor just like Iron Man’s. And everything blows up that way. News networks talk about it and talk show hosts, the paper has articles on how the public is showing an unimaginable support for Iron Man and the rest of his team that stayed and fought for them and continue to fight for them during the revision of the Accords.

And I want it to be on the news so much that team cap has to watch it and has to know how much everyone loves Tony and what he’s doing and how he went about it. And how he is an actual hero who did his best and how much the public believe and appreciate him.
