and they say i'm a bully

I am really tired yall.

Lemme just preface this with saying that I am a writer. I have been writing for most of my life. I have taken actual classes about writing and about what fiction can offer you, me, and people as a whole. I have won an award for something that I wrote. I know and love fiction, be it in written form, graphic novels, or film. It is all so good and complex and it’s something I am passionate about. That said, let’s get into this.

A good majority of the discourse that goes on in most of the fandoms I’m in stem from the idea that violence and forbidden sexual acts in fiction will encourage those actions in reality. It is important to know, firstly, that the only time this happens is when a person is immature enough or not mentally healthy enough to distinguish reality from fiction. Growing up, my parents would often stop horror movies (back when I first started watching them) to ask me questions. To be fair, they were pretty shitty people, but in this one aspect, they were so good about making sure I knew this difference. “You know this is just a movie, right? None of the stuff on the tv is real.” They’d assure before continuing the film.

It’s not real.

Now, half of the stuff I read or watched back then was nowhere near pushing boundaries or making me think critically about society or whatever. However, I knew that what I watched wasn’t real. It was images on a screen. If I don’t like what I’m seeing, I can walk away. It doesn’t have to affect me, personally,  unless I let it.

Now, lets circle back. School. College. I took a writing class that used this book:

Granted, it was a screenwriting class and most of the chapters were about various script formats, but the beginning chapters focused on why we write and why we make the stories we do.

It had a section in it describing how human needs and desires are met through fiction. It detailed those needs in a list. This list:

Please draw your attention to the ones on the list that say that fictions helps people to:

Be purged of unpleasant emotions

To have vicarious but controlled emotional experiences

To confront, in a controlled situation, the horrible and terrible

To explore taboo subjects without guilt

Just because you personal don’t need various forms of ‘taboo’ media, doesn’t mean that others don’t. Media, in all of its forms, is a way for people to explore things safely. It’s an outlet that doesn’t harm anyone and it offers the creator and viewer/reader a safe way of exploring the complexities of situations (or in some cases relationships) that these people do not want to be involved in irl. Because we can distinguish reality from fiction. Because none of us are going out killing people or getting into abusive relationships or fucking our sibling.

While being critical of the media we consume is important and it is vital to dissect the whys of the media being created, there is a line between creating open discussion about these taboos, about the society and personal experiences that makes one need these outlets, and verbally abusing and harassing strangers.

If you want to create a dialogue about media or a ship you don’t agree with, fine. Talk about it. Dissect it. Really dig deep into the human condition and the psychology behind these outlets, but don’t shame people for them to the point of telling them to kill themselves or telling them they are human garbage or what the fuck ever.

Fiction isn’t always meant to be picturesque. It’s not always going to be SFW. If that isn’t your cup of tea, then great. Stop going into the tags of things that make you feel unhealthy. You do you. Keep yourself safe. Stop continuously exposing yourself to content that you can’t swallow. To keep getting involved, to keep harassing people, to keep abusing strangers shows that you don’t give a damn about the content. You need an excuse to bully someone else and indulge in holier-than-thou circle jerks with other people who also have no sense of what fiction is for.

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Why did Sky High teachers do nothing to stop children from becoming villains? There is no way they could have missed how sadistically some of the kids acted but they did nothing about it, even allowing physical bullying of dangerously powered kids against kids with basically no powers as well as sexual harrassment. They clearly saw in the simulator that two of the boys liked being villains, they blatantly said that they liked being villains to the teachers and nothing was done. Is it because the kids don't get a choice in having any other career beyond being a superhero? Are they letting them be villains so they can match their supply of heroes with a demand for them? They create villains jut so they can have a reason to become famous and fight them. It is a corrupt super hero society and no one is willing to stop it
  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: jkr should have included a redemption arc for draco. this was a boy that was obviously scared of what he was going into, didn't want to be a death eater, and fleed from the war so he couldn't kill anyone. jkr still couldn't include one moment where draco was seen being a regular, nice human being to the golden trio. why did she leave him in our minds as a villain and instead redeem severus "i-got-rejected-once-therefore-i'll-obsessively-stalk-my-old-crush-and-bully-every-student-i-teach" snape?
  • Justin: "I was getting my Munch Squad on at McDonald's. When I sat down for my feast, a guy walked in the door, looked at me, and said, "Idiot can't even make his own pancakes, how pathetic."
  • *Justin begins laughing mid-sentence*
  • Griffin: Don't laugh at that! I mean it's, it's a power play.
  • Justin: This person was just eating breakfast at McDonald's, and when they sat down to eat a guy walked in the door, looked at them and said, "Idiot can't make his own pancakes, how pathetic." - And then walked back out! What is this fuckin' mysterious assassin? "I tried to enjoy my meal but all I could taste were dejection and tears. How can I track this guy down, explain how restaurants work and then project the image of a man who definitely understands the process of making pancakes to every stranger I encounter." And that's from Hobbes.
  • ...
  • Justin: Here's the nicer, amazing way of doing this. Walk into McDonald's, see somebody eating a stack of pancakes, hand them a recipe for pancakes, and then walk out the door.
  • ...
  • Travis: I wanna be in the head of the person who's walking by McDonald's, sees someone eatin' a stack of flapjacks and is like, I GOTTA go in there and say somethin'.
  • Justin: I gotta get'em.
  • Griffin: Fucking double parks...
  • Travis: Just pulls up on the lawn of McDonald's, rolls out.
  • Justin in a deeper voice: Victoria just go around the block, I'm just...I'm just gonna be a sec.
  • ...
  • Justin: Listen, I know we try to keep it nice on this show, we try not to be mean... This is maybe the funniest thing I've ever heard. I'm really trying so hard not to be entertained by this.
  • Griffin: It's not funny that you got bullied and it's not funny that this person's an ass. What's funny is the idea of walking into a restaurant, just already - just pre-angry that people here are eating things that they could just as easily make at home.

Anonymous said: I cant get over g’s video for sid, suit and tie with a nice back drop talking like a video you would play at a dramatic surprise proposal that everyone was in on (g sent sid around on like a scavanger hunt and he got to the end and the video was playing) and like it ends with g saying ’ i love you so much turn around’ and g is there proposing wearing the suit

OMG, ok, ok. Proposal!AU time!

There’s a roaring in his head, echoed by the crowd inside the PPG Paints Arena, exploding into noise as Geno’s message ends.

Sidney knows, even before he turns around, that he’s going to see his idiot boyfriend down on one knee on the ice behind him. His crazy wonderful, idiot boyfriend whom Sidney loves more than words could possibly explain.

His breath hitches as he lies eyes on Geno’s beaming face, his lips stretched into the widest grin Sid has ever seen. He’s holding a ring up towards Sidney; it’s huge and garish and so Geno that Sidney can’t help the choked laugh that bubbles out of him.

He’s going to wear that ring with pride, isn’t he?

Geno’s mouth is moving, shaping out words that Sidney can’t hear over the thundering of the crowd they are roaring their approval so loudly. Sidney doesn’t need to hear the words to know what he’s saying though.

He nods wildly, holding out his left hand so Geno can remove his glove. Sid doesn’t actually say yes, but he doesn’t need to; the ring goes on smoothly, and Sid laughs again, because last week Tanger and Flower had brought him ring shopping for Vero—an anniversary, Flower had insisted, and then made Sidney try on rings too. To get his ring size, Sidney knows now.

Geno pulls him into a kiss, and impossibly the crowd gets even louder. They’re being mobbed by their teammates, beaming faces everywhere Sidney looks, so happy for them and—

Sidney would maybe have liked for this to be more private, for it to be just Sid and Geno. He looks up at Geno, at his fiancé, and swallows, awed, at the look of love and adoration on his face. For Sidney. Always, always, for Sidney.

—as far as proposals go, this one isn’t all that bad, Sidney decides.

He actually kinda loves it.

  • Bully: Your Mo-
  • Boruto: WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU SAY ABOUT MY MOTHER?! FIGHT ME ASSHOLE! I'M GOING TO WRECK YOUR SHIT AND DANCE ON YOUR GRAVE AFTER I'M DONE WITH YOU! TALK SHIT GET HIT!

it’s necessary to call out your fave on their shitty behaviour. you can still love them and support them. and you calling out that shitty behaviour helps them to better themselves and learn from their mistakes. if you just sit back and remain ignorant, you are condoning their words and actions. don’t be that person.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: it's been 12 years and i have yet to comprehend the fact that jk rowling doesn't understand her characters to such a degree that she singlehandedly killed off multiple protagonists for the sake of shock value, handed a golden trophy filled with rainbows to an obsessive, possessive, bullying, racist, prejudiced, narrow minded, cruel, and unforgiving man who literally dismissed the idea of a child dying if it were in the name of his true 'love' when really, lily was a sick illusion he built and not actually anything resembling a healthy relationship, and then jk somehow forgot to give an underage boy with a similar past the same redemption arc even though he was painted as a pitiful character who did all he could ?? and also. why the fuck did sirius have to die like... y'all he could have raised harry AND teddy ?? and can she honestly leave slytherin's alone for a second we're not all bad guys
To Be a Slytherin...
  • Slytherin: To be in Slytherin... you must-
  • Gryffindor: Hate and discriminate against anyone who isn't pureblooded.
  • Ravenclaw: Be evil and bent on world domination.
  • Hufflepuff: Bully everyone you see because they are worthless peasants compared to you.
  • Slytherin: I was just going to say 'know what you want and fight for it'. And people say I'm harsh. What do your statements say about you?

A Drabble with Lance saying replying to something actually horrifying with "Don't worry, I'm used to it."

AHHH I’m so sorry this took me so long, I couldn’t think of anything for this! 

I’m not sure how I feel about this tbh 

Mentions Of Bullies 

Lance had always grown up with bullies. Throughout elementary school, to middle school, to high school they were always there. 

They only started getting physical in high school. Lance hide it from his parents, he would make sure that they never found out. He knew that they wouldn’t be able to stop them and they didn’t have enough money to move Lance to a new school. I guess I better get used to it. And he did. 

-

Moving to the Garrison was the best decision of Lance’s life. He had the best roommate ever, a strange communication buddy and he was far away from his old bullies. However his bullies were quickly replaced by his officers. 

It wasn’t hard for Lance to learn about the pilot prodigy Keith. Every teacher and officer made sure Lance knew he was a replacement to Keith. Everything Lance did was always “Keith did better” or “Don’t forget you’re only here because Keith dropped out.” Lance never got “Good job Lance!” 

Oh well, better get used to it. 

-

Lance didn’t have to deal with ‘bullies’ when he became part of Voltron, the team and Alteans were usually pretty good at being nice to him. 

However not everybody was nice to Lance. 

They had just gotten done saving a planet when the all landed to meet the aliens. Each alien was about 9 feet tall and looked like they could lift a schoolbus. They also didn’t look the friendliest.

As soon as Lance stepped out of his lion he was targeted by them. He didn’t know exactly what they were saying all he knew is he flew too close to their sacred tomb.  

Lance tuned them out as they scolded him, maybe I shouldn’t save everyone.

After about 10 minuets of them telling him what he did wrong and how they didn’t understand why Voltron pick him out of everyone, Lance walked to his lion and flew away.  

The rest of the team immediately followed Lance, barely even saying goodbye to the aliens they recently saved. 

Once up in their lions the team tried to speak to Lance, who hadn’t said anything the entire time 

“Lance don’t believe what they said. You’re a fantastic pilot and a great asset to the team.” Shiro prayed that his words reached Lance. 

“I agree with Shiro, even though we fight I still believe that you amazing.” Keith flew Red around Blue to try to get a response. 

“Lance you’re like another brother to me. You can’t believe what those freaks said about you.” Pidge attempted to keep their hands steady as they fumed with anger for what happened to Lance . 

“Lance, buddy, you’re my best friend. I know you and you are amazing. I need you to understand this, okay? Lance? Can you answer me?” Hunk was trying not to freak out, but he was starting to freak out. 

After a few moments of silence Lance finally spoke “Don’t worry, I’m used to it.” Lance turned his coms off. 

The team was speechless. How could Lance be used to being yelled at? How could he easily take the blame for something he didn’t do? 

“When we get back to the castle, everyone report to the common room, we need to discuss what to do with Lance.” Shiro watched Blue fly in front of the group and narrowed his eyes. He wasn’t sure why Lance was like this but he would fight to make sure Lance was happy. 

Like I said I’m not very happy with this.

I hope you like it though! 

  • What the Admins say: i'm fine
  • What the Admins mean: J-hope. Jung Hoseok. Hobi. Your hope. Your Angel. The Eternal Sunshine of the fucking earth. IS LITERALLY such a talented and beautiful person, he works so hard and loves ARMY so much and for him to finally grace us with the blessing of his presence in the vlive bts+ chat after such a long period of us not seeing him on vlive for reasons that SHOULD NOT EVEN HAVE BEEN A THING IN THE FIRST PLACE, and be met with some people commenting for other members AGAIN or flat out saying "why are you here?" or that he should leave BTS is SO FUCKING DISRESPECTFUL, UNCALLED FOR, DISGUSTING, and full offense those people are not fans. I don't care about the bullshit arguments of "i'm allowed to not like every member" cuz fine sure, you're entitled to your wrong opinion and I say it's wrong because literally how does one not enjoy all 7 of them i will never understand, BUT EVEN IF THAT IS THE CASE and you for some reason don't like a member as much, what you don't do is tell them to leave their group??? Who raised you??? Why are you so full of hate and nastiness??? BTS would not be BTS without ALL of the members, no group would be without ALL of their members, they are there for a fucking reason, they have made their work their entire life for a fucking reason and I'm so tired of this bullying. What do you even get out of it? literally what is the point of being so heartless and rude? This should not happen, This is terrible and when cypher pt 5 ends up being about ARMY nobody say nothing to me I s2g.
