Less “Autism isn’t a disability, its just a difference!”

More “The idea of ‘a disability’ obscures the reality of disablement and reduces it to individual experiences rather than the wide social disabling of disabled people and trying to separate Autistic people from other disabled people by acting like we are somehow better is harmful and unhelpful. We are disabled, denying that is not how to end our oppression, we need to challenge ableism and disablement at its root and join with other disabled people and other marginalised groups in doing so.”

The Art of Control  by avintagekiss24   Maggie Greene has always been Michonne’s Achilles heel. Whatever the green eyed beauty wants, Michonne usually gives. So, when Maggie suggests a night out at one of her famous social mixers, Michonne obliges. Unbeknownst to all, a blue eyed stranger will shift her actuality from distinct to obscure. Limits will be tested, desires will be realized, and no one will be left the same.

Bad Thangs by kendrawriter32 Rick and Michonne are putting the pieces back together after the walker herd hit Alexandria hard, and the losses it brought them. With Maggie pregnant and the future for them all to consider, Michonne knows exactly what she wants, and so does Rick. They want each other. And they will have each other. In as many ways, on as many surfaces, in as many positions as they can get each other. The only question is who they’ll hurt, and what plans they’ll derail, in the process. Richonne smut, with a dash of angsty romance, stirred in with some plot. Enjoy!

 Ride by  cakeby_thepound  “Every April, the county fair would come into town with a setup like this,” Rick fondly recalled, surveying the scene around him. He and Michonne had stumbled onto what was once the campus of a middle school, where a small carnival had been constructed in its parking lot. They were supposed to be on a weapons run, but in reality, it’d turned into a search for anything useful. And if nothing else, schools tended to have plenty of bathroom tissue and cafeteria food. “We would take Carl,” he went on to say. “Make a whole weekend out of it.

Her body was full of little moles, she never stopped talking, but i did not understand her. She wore the dress with a lots of art”.


Countdown to Ben Mendelsohn’s Birthday (1/3)

Vanity Fair

“The briny stink of sleaze and fish guts upon him, Ben Mendelsohn entered streaming America’s consciousness in the debut season of Bloodline, the Netflix series by Glenn Kessler, Todd A. Kessler, and Daniel Zelman, the team behind Damages. As Danny Rayburn, the wayward, grudge-bearing eldest child in a family that runs a resort in the Florida Keys, Mendelsohn simultaneously exuded charisma and menace, evoking Gary Oldman and Peter Coyote at their most mischievous, yet possessed of his own distinctive scary-man juju. The actor has been a known and respected quantity in his native Australia since the 1980s, when he co-starred in the coming-of-age movie The Year My Voice Broke and the enduring soap opera and national institution Neighbours (back when Kylie Minogue was on it).

Even before Bloodline, Mendelsohn was enjoying something of a midlife breakthrough, playing various shades of unsavory in Animal Kingdom, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Place Beyond the Pines— and, for comic relief, guesting as the flake-ola father of Jemima Kirke’s character in Girls. His streak of prestige work continues with Mississippi Grind, in theaters this month, an Altman-esque road movie directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck in which he stars opposite Ryan Reynolds, and—in a coup for a Star Wars fan who was eight when the original film came out—in next year’s Rogue One, the first in Disney’s new line of spin-off Star Wars movies that will exist apart from the main Lucasfilm franchise. Herewith, some insights gleaned from a benign, wholly unfrightening conversation with Mendelsohn.” Source: (x)



VIRGO || (August 23 - September 22)

Gather ye rosebuds while ye can, gather your thoughts as you go,
Because purity of heart and maturity of mind all bond here at Virgo.
Serving the needy and pleasing the promised, their kindness knows no delay,
Because when a Virgo does as a Virgo will, they’re sprinkling thoughtfulness for days.

However soft their edges may feel at first, you must still beware,
Because if you step upon the wrong foot, you’ll feel the Virgo flare.
With a critical, condescending, prudish glare,
The harshest of rules are made to seem fair.

-April (@astrolofae)
