and yes this is me and my two friends

3

My friend (marked in blue) posted her frustrations with being  called “girl” despite  being almost 30 years old, and how you wouldn’t call a man “boy”.
She expressed her anger towards being infantized…(which is so NOT a contoversial thing to say…It should literally go without saying WHY it’s not cool to talk to an adult like they are a child)….

….and two male family members just HAD to pounce in to mock her ….

One (marked in black)  being outright asshole-ish, the other (marked in red) kinda…goaded it on, like whooooaaaah LOL gonna make her so mad, LOLOL

I am just…so fucking tired of this…

So tired…

And my female friend just lost a father like 3 weeks ago, still mourning…and these male family members (who know she is mourning) treat her like shit…What the fuck? Can’t sexism and patriarchal bullshit EVER just take a break?

I am so tired of it….

But even after all this, showing this example of blatant sexism….I STILL have to reassure men that I don’t hate all of them…

So tired….

Hi. My friend just told me there's going to be 6 books in the ACOTAR series, but both me and her thought there were only going to be 3. Did some books get added on to the series or something, because i'm really confused about this. I hope you can answer my question!

It is both yes and no! There are only going to be three books in the main series, with the third book coming out May 2nd. However, there are going to be three more novels and two novellas coming out that are a part of the series. Whether this will take place in the world after ACOWAR (such as about their children) or if it will take place before (such as a background story on Morrigan or any of the other Night court members), or about a new character’s story completely remains to be seen. There will also be a coloring book, just like Throne of Glass. So this will add 6 books to the ACOTAR series/world though will not (as of now at least) be considered a part of the chronological main three books. These will most likely be branches of the first three books in some way shape or form.


Hoped this helped!

Okay, but can we please talk about the "I would die for you" thing again. It's just so fucking heartwarming and breaking at the same time. The way Rhett says it so matter of factly the first time and then the way his voice softens the second time he says it because he realizes he actually would die for him because he loves him that freaking much. It made my heart flutter but also Link not responding makes me angsty because of how dang vulnerable Rhett was when he said it AHH :( too many emotions

yes!!!!!!!!!! like i thought it was very funny that Link ignored him, but at the same time i really wish he would’ve listened. it seems like it could’ve been a very heartwarming moment between the two!


But also think about what that means for Rhett, he has a wife and family. He has other friends and loved ones, he has so many things he wants to do and see, and he would sacrifice it all for Link to live if it ever came to the decision. like…. its so tragically beautiful to think about and like you said it makes my heart warm and hurt at the same time

  • my friends: yecch, my legs are so hairy :( haven't shaved in two weeks :/
  • me: let me see, the last time i shaved my legs.... ah, yes, i remember it well... August of '43, the last summer i ever wore a dress... rationing had left everyone short, and so my siblings and i split the last of the shave cream between the four of us.... my legs were as smooth as the chrome on my first fiancé's '36 Buick... the preacher married us that Saturday, and it was the last time anyone ever saw my knees....

“how did you know that it was over? that you should leave him?”, she asks her best friend.

“simple. i asked myself two questions: do i love him? and, does he make me happy?”

“and?”

“yes, yes i love him. but no, he doesn’t make me happy. and just being in love with someone isn’t enough. if that someone can’t make you happy, all the love in the world can’t help you. you will just end up destroying yourself for someone who isn’t even worth it.”

—  e.s. // all the love in the world can’t help you.

Just in case I don’t do anything with these, I’m posting them here 

This is what I’ve been doodling for the past few days, I grabbed a few dancing videos, paused them and sketched 

I wanna add some color to these, or clean them up, and add even more, we’ll see if I actually do that xD

So I think @lordminion has two new little Japanese fans?

During class today, two of my sixth graders kept yelling “DEAD BY DAYLIGHT!!” For some reason when we were reviewing English building names (hospital, bank, post office, etc).
After class they came up to me like “sensei! Sensei! Do you know dead by daylight?”
Me: “Yes”
Student A: “REALLY?! Have you played it?!”
Me: “No but I’ve watched it”
Student B: “you watched it? Does your friend play it?”
Me: “uhhh yeah. A… Friend (:”
A: “on YouTube?”
Me: “yeah”
A&B: “YOUR FRIEND IS ON YOUTUBE??”
Me: “UHHHHH yeah. My.. Friend is on….. YouTube”
A: “what’s their name??”

So I wrote down LordMinion777 on the board (they loved the name because they’re 11 and they love the yellow Minions) and were all excited about looking Wade up after school today. They thought it was AMAZING that there’s an American who plays dead by daylight!! Wow!!! (And he OBVIOUSLY loves minions, since it’s his NAME, so that makes him EXTRA COOL)

So eyyyyyy Wade say hi to ur two new Japanese fans. They’re really excited and cute and also can’t understand anything u say unless u ask them something like “What color do you like” lol (also sorry I said I was ur friend I was trying to act cool 😎)

tough-teddy-deactivated20170303  asked:

Hi, I'm creating a comic where troubled, low income teens are given the option to go to a boarding school, in North California, to train to become monster hunters. The school is mostly populated by minorities mostly African American, Native Americans, South East Asians, and Latinx. A friend of mine said it might be seen as problematic to have Native Americans be in a government own boarding school. This worries me since my main character is a Native American boy whom loves the school.

Native Character in Monster-Hunter Boarding School; Poor implications? 

So, yes, it could be a very tricky thing to have Native Americans in the school. But it all boils down to two questions:

  1. Is it consensual in the most genuine sense of the term?
  2. Do they become part of a new culture, or do they keep their old one and add to it?

The residential school system was not consensual even when there weren’t laws in place forcing kids to go. Parents could and did send their children there because they thought it was for the best, because they were coerced into it, or because they had developed the type of fondness you develop for your abuser where you try to replicate the pattern because you haven’t healed from it yet.
If the kids are told in very informed ways what happens to their lives— who they have contact with, whether or not their culture has to change (a big red flag would be no room to carry on cultural beliefs or, in the case of Natives, reconnect with their cultural beliefs), how their lives would get better and worse.

If, however, the kids are caught in moments of desperation, where it’s basically “come with us or else”, then there would be major problems with the validity of that consent. If the kids are doing okay but looking for a way out, that’s one thing, but if the school reps dive in at a bad point when all hope seems lost, I would feel very uncomfortable.

Next, you have to give him options to practice and explore his culture. The pain of the residential school system was because it was an active attempt at destroying our culture. So if you have it that your character is still Native, keeps what traditions he can, and is allowed to go back into his community/family without problem, then you’ve mollified the forced assimilation undertones to the school.

you should have minimal problems with the government run boarding school. If you want a general list of what to avoid in the school to make it not be a residential school, Canada published the Truth and Reconciliation Commission describing the country’s use of the system and the abuse that happened within. The possibility exists you’ll trigger people regardless (it is a very fresh trauma in our communities), but by making it consensual and having connections to his culture, you’ll at least minimize the negative impact. Check out [Braving Native American Diversity] and [Researching Native American Cultures] for tips on how to make him have a culture.

Pairing: Paul x Reader

Word count: 690


“You’ve lost your mind.” You feel so nervous that a laugh escapes your mouth. “He’s my friend! He’s just a friend! Is that so hard to understand? ”

“Yes, because he loves you!”

“He doesn’t love me, Paul! I’ve known him since forever.” You sit on the couch, closing your eyes for a few seconds to try to calm down.

Paul freaked out when you told him you spend the day with Dean, an old friend. He came from Canada to see you since it’s been two years you’re living here in Forks.

“You’re naive. You’ve always been naive and you can’t see what I can!” Paul is shaking, just like he’s just about to shift. You’re not scared. You were never scared of his temper.

“I am smart enough to understand these things, Paul.”

“I don’t think so since you’re apparently on his side.”

“I won’t stop talking to him just because you’re jealous.” Picking up your phone, you text your friend Marilyn. She’s the only one who can help you with this kind of problems.

“Don’t.” Paul takes the phone from your hands, throwing it at the wall. Shocked by his action, you gasp, trying not to punch him and break your damn arm. “You won’t text him.”

“I WAS TEXTING MARILYN!” You yell, running to your bedroom. You start to pack your things while Paul tries to make you stop. “I’m done. If you don’t trust me then there’s no reason for me to stay. I love Dean like a friend and I love you because you’re the love of my life. Not my fault you can’t understand it.”

“(Y/N), I’m still talking. Be rational and finish this conversation like an adult. ” The tone of his voice is rude and it breaks your heart.

“I’m still leaving.”


“I need you to stop crying and explain to me what happened.” Marilyn gives you some ice cream so you can eat something while you cry your heart out.

“I told him I wanted he to think about us. But he told me he didn’t need to think. Then I told him I needed to think. Do you really think I would break up with him?”

“I’m still confused.” Always so damn honest, Marilyn takes a deep breath.

“It’s about Dean!” You shout, making your friend jump on the couch.

“Oh. Got it. But Paul loves you so much and I can understand him. He’s scared to lose you.”

“He’s the love of my life. I already told him that a million times!”

“I’m sure you did, but how would you act if he spent a whole day with a woman? Even if she’s just a friend of his? A whole day alone with her while you stay home.”

You put the ice cream down to think. Well, to rethink. Maybe, just maybe, this is kinda your fault. Paul wouldn’t freak out if he went with you. And no, you wouldn’t like him to spend all that time with a friend.

“Shit.”

“Yes, shit. I’m not saying you have to apologize, but I do can imagine how he felt.”

“I love him, Mary. So much.” You whisper, tears still rolling down your cheeks.

“Call him.”

And that’s what you do. Fearing that he may be rude to you like he did earlier, you patiently wait for him to answer the phone. When he finally answers, you both keep silent. Hearing his breath is enough to make you want to be with him again and this desire takes your breath away. You barely feel it, this weird pain in your chest, since you’re always together, but you just can’t take it.

“Paul…”

“(Y/N), you have no idea how it hurts. Being away from you is… too painful.”

“I know, Paul, I… I’m sorry. I love you. No one but you.” With a smile on your lips, you help Marilyn to pack up your things again. “I’m sorry if I hurt you. Whenever I want to see Dean you can come. I didn’t know how much it hurt you.”

“I’m coming to bring you home. I love you.”

“I love you too.”

I’m officially opening this can of worms

aka my full argument for why Terra is in fact one of the Seven Lights in Kingdom Hearts 3. BRACE YOURSELVES, TL;DR IS COMING

Mickey: Seven guardians of light? Well, for Keyblade wielders, there’s me
and Riku and Sora. And my three missing friends, that’s six. Then the
seventh would be… […] That means…the thirteen seekers of darkness…

Xehanort: Yes, little king. Perceptive. But Sora and another on your
list belong to me now. And that puts you three guardians short. But worry not. All of the pieces are destined to appear. Your seven lights just like my thirteen darknesses, whose final clash will beget the prize I seek…

CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS VERY IMPORTANT SCENE HERE FOR A SECOND PLEASE

This is what a lot of people have used to argue that Terra is, in fact, one of the Seekers of Darkness, because this line appears to infer that Xehanort has both him and Sora in his possession.

However, I think the exact opposite. I think this line utterly proves that Xehanort does not have him, which means Terra cannot be a Seeker of Darkness. Allow me to tl;dr a little lot:

Mickey just listed out six of the seven known Lights: Sora, Riku, himself, and his “three friends,” which obviously refers to Terra, Ventus, and Aqua, the only wielders that this game goes to great lengths to avoid verbally naming until the very end. Judging by Xehanort’s response here, he confirms these six as being the chosen Lights.

“Sora and another on your list.” Does this automatically refer to Terra? Think about it. Xehanort has Sora. Xehanort is about to possess him in both body and heart to claim him as a vessel. If he has Sora, whom else does he automatically have possession of? Those in his Sora’s heart who are waiting to be revived, including Roxas, Xion, and Ventus. Ventus, who was just listed as another Light. Also keep in mind:

  • Xigbar knows where Ven is. Both his scene with Zexion in KH2 and his remark to Sora earlier in DDD prove that he knows not only where Ven’s body is, but also where his heart is.
  • Xemnas knows where Ven’s body is. He spent years trying to find the room it’s in – and considering what we learn in DDD, this was most likely with the intention of using him as an easy vessel.
  • Besides having literally predicted pretty much everything in the KH storyline, Master Xehanort also knows what Vanitas looks like – or rather, whom he looks like.

In summary, Xehanort would have surely made the connection by now that Ven and Sora are very closely linked – and judging by Xigbar’s remarks, he knows that Ven’s heart is currently inside Sora’s.

What’s this mean? It means Xehanort would know that by possessing Sora, he automatically gets Ven as well. And if Xehanort has Ven’s heart, Ven obviously can’t serve as a Light because he can’t be whole again. Let’s go back to his line:

“But Sora and another on your list belong to me now. And that puts you three guardians short.”

The common argument is that the “another” refers to Terra, with the “three guardians” total meaning Sora, Terra, and the unknown seventh Light that Mickey couldn’t name. But if Xehanort actually had Terra, he should have said “Sora and two others on your list belong to me now. And that puts you four guardians short,referring to Sora, Terra, the unknown seventh, and Ven. But since he doesn’t, and if we assume that his “two” does mean Sora and Ven, this would mean that not only is Xehanort saying “nope I don’t have Terra,” but he’s also agreeing with Mickey’s initial statement that Terra is one of the Lights.

This isn’t the kind of oversight Xehanort would make, least of all in the game whose entire purpose is to emphasize just how truly, terrifyingly knowledgeable and powerful he really is.

Now, getting back to my original statement, I think this proves Terra isn’t a Darkness presently, but I also think it proves that he will not be one, ever. Remember, Xehanort had his whole plan laid out: 12 vessels carefully chosen over time with Sora as the last-minute thirteenth. That plan was ruined (-insert mad cheering for Lea here-), meaning that his search for a thirteenth vessel in KH3 is an improvisation on his part. If he intended to use Terra as a Darkness, it would not be the thirteenth. He would have already had Terra in line among the first twelve, since at first glance Terra would seem like a legitimate choice given his fate in BBS.

Also remember: DDD tells us that the thirteen Darknesses are made up of people who each possess a piece of Xehanort’s heart. Recall how difficult Terra was for Xehanort to maintain a hold on at the end of BBS – and that was with his whole heart inside of Terra. The likelihood of his being able to maintain control of Terra now, with only 1/13th of his heart, is extremely unlikely, if not an outright plothole should Terra actually turn up as a Darkness. And again, keep in mind that Xehanort is very, very intelligent and he’s not going to waste his time this far into the game. Why bother attempting to reign in a vessel who was so much work before and was able to outmaneuver him and set him back for 13 years?

He won’t. Because as he told Terra directly in BBS, "You are just one of many roads that I might choose to take. Trust me. I made certain of that.” It’s my strong belief that Terra is utterly useless to Xehanort now, much like Riku, and so Xehanort is completely ignoring him at this point – and even going as far as letting Mickey and the others have him (by not going after Terra himself), because if Terra can’t serve the War as a Darkness, he’ll serve it as a Light, which is really all the same in the end as far as Xehanort’s motives are concerned.

AND SINCE WE’RE HERE, I’ll also cover the topic of what a Guardian of Light should be, which further supports Terra as one of them:

What exactly qualifies a person as a Light? Let’s look at the similarities between the six mentioned before. Sora, Riku, Mickey, Terra, Ven, and Aqua – we all know from their respective games that they are each VERY light-oriented in their hearts. Riku struggled for a while, but he eventually overcame his darkness to balance it with his light. Terra also succumbed to darkness, but BBS mentions several times that he has a very strong light in his heart regardless. It’s this light that forces Xehanort to take such a long, roundabout way of doing things to finally possess him in the end. Terra and Riku are virtually the same case, a point stressed all the more in Blank Points. So, overall, I’d say it’s safe to assume that the Seven Lights all have to possess strong lights in their hearts. This is kind of obvious, given the name.

Second, these six have been proven to be very justice-oriented. Sora, Riku, Terra, Ven, Aqua, and Mickey are all the types who would – and do – jump headlong and selflessly into danger for others, oftentimes complete strangers. They take their roles as Keyblade wielders very seriously and understand the kind of responsibility that they carry. So, I would also say that the Lights have to possess noble intentions, a strong sense of justice, and a general adherence to the idea of what is “good” in this universe. Also keep in mind that they play the roles opposite to the Darknesses, so they stand for everything Xehanort’s side doesn’t: lawfulness, order, and the general good.

Thus, if Terra is not one of the Lights, then besides finding the unconfirmed seventh (which, by all appearances, is most likely Kairi) the good guys also need to find another wielder who fits the above description. Of all the wielders we know, past and present, no one else fits all these qualities – except Eraqus, arguably, but even he made one really big screw-up that set him apart from the standards set by the six mentioned above. Roxas sort of comes close, but imo isn’t light-centric enough. Even the Foretellers, despite being generally good people, appear to be flawed in ways that ultimately put their own interests before anything else, unlike the six listed above who constantly put themselves last and fight for others and what they believe is Right.

SO. way too much tl;dr, but to sum it up, please please PLEASE do not just go by the word of all these people (including certain high-profile individuals) who preach “Terra isn’t a Light” and/or “so-and-so is a Light” as fact without any evidence to back it up. This happens a lot, and goes back to how fanbases in general have a terrible habit of accepting fan opinions as fact and then lashing out at canon when it doesn’t happen, which is a sad and frustrating thing to watch.

I’m not saying you should believe everything I’ve said as 100% infallible, but I ask you to consider it, and actually think for yourself, before just going with the biased flow and blind claims that are so prevalent in fandom.

NOT OKAY

Yesterday while walking with two of my friends, we ran across a group protesting President Elect Trump outside the train station. We started to walk around them because we were all in fact Trump supporters. A couple people ran over to us and asked us to join them. We denied politely and started to walk away when one of the offhandedly said “What, you support Trump?” She was laughing like she didn’t believe. My friend, who is a white girl, turned back and said “Yes, I do.”

Big mistake.

What happened next scared me. The protected started screaming back at her people “Trump supporter over here! Trump supporter over here!” That huge group all of a sudden started to move towards us. There was lot of incoherent screaming but the bits and pieces I did hear were things like “Take your white privilege and go fuck yourself you fucking racist!” “Fucking ignorant white people!” “FUCK YOU!” “Get fucking raped and die!”

Then, a couple of the protestors started screaming at me asking how I could be friends with her.

We were already trying to rush into the station because at this point I was afraid they were going to attack her.

This is NOT OKAY.

I’m perfectly fine if you want to peacefully protest.

But you know what this was? BULLYING. RACISM. HATRED.

This from the side that was preaching love. This from the side that says that is what Trump is all about.

What. The. Hell.

You can be racist towards white people. Quit acting like they are a devil because of their skin color.

They didn’t ask to be born white just like you didn’t ask to be born whatever color you are.

My god, I’m so sick of all of y'all.


SPREAD LOVE NOT HATE. QUIT FOCUSING ON GENDER, SKIN COLOR, RELIGION, AND SEXUAL ORIENTATION.

Radicals are what’s the problem these days.

I am bisexual. Do I hate Christians because they disapprove of my lifestyle? NO. True Christians are some of the nicest people I have ever met. They always treat me with respect, and they talk to me like I’m human. The “bad Christians” are the radicals like friggin westboro.

We need to stop generalizing people and judge individuals by their actions, not groups.
