WAVERLY HILL SANATORIUM

I have received so many messages requesting me to make this post. After looking into it, I realized why. 

The hospital was always dedicated to the treatment of tuberculosis patients, a disease that was fairly common in the early 20th Century.

It is estimated that as many as 63,000 people died as the sanatorium. Those deaths coupled with the reports of severe mistreatment of patients and highly questionable experiments and procedures are ingredients for a haunted location.

One of the most famous things about is the death tunnel. So many people were dying because of tuberculosis, that this tunnel was used to carry the bodies out without other patients having to see them. 

In room 502 (episode feature in ghost hunters), it was said that there was a murder/suicide of a nurse.  

Legend says the nurse found out she was pregnant by the owner of the sanatorium without being married and had contracted tuberculosis, so she hanged herself with a light bulb wire outside the room she was in at the time.

Ghost investigators who have ventured into Waverly have reported a host of strange paranormal phenomena, including voices of unknown origin, isolated cold spots and unexplained shadows. Screams have been heard echoing in its now abandoned hallways, and fleeting apparitions have been encountered.

To those destiel shippers attacking Jensen Ackles due to his tweets supporting the LGBT community and offering condolences,

How dare you make this about your ship? How dare you?

Queer people are dead and your first thought is to admonish somebody for tweeting their support.

I am queer.

I have rolled my eyes when people said shippers fetishize homosexuality, because hey, acceptance must be a factor, right? Today I see people who do not care. Shippers use queerness as a shield to attack others and I am ashamed to be part of that. Do you even care about us? I am grieving because we lost people in a homophobic attack. What you are doing is beyond reprehensible. It is homophobia in action. To put the opinions of an actor on your headcanons over the real-life, injured, dead, and dying disgusts me.

Not supporting your ship does not make a person a homophobe.

Choosing to call a person a homophobe and doubt the sincerity of their support in a time when their queer fans are grieving and looking for solidarity with the people they admire is damaging to the people who have been hurt by these events. Stop.

If you care at all about the LGBT community. Stop.

I’m sick of people telling me this isn’t a gun issue, I’m sick of people pretending like guns are meant for protection when they never protect and they only destroy, I’m sick of people dying because someone who has mental problems or a sick agenda can get a gun so easily in this country, I’m sick of people getting killed for no reason, and I’m sick of seeing all of these things keep happening and seeing no one taking any action, I’m sick of people saying there’s nothing to be done when clearly there is something but their “second amendment” right which is entirely outdated is more important to them than other people’s lives

BillDip YouTubers AU where Dipper is a gamer and Bill is a vlogger/makes comedy videos. One day Bill makes a video that throws shade at the gamer YouTubers (”Why would anyone want to watch OTHER PEOPLE play games, like isn’t that boring as hell?! Sorry gamers but I’m pretty sure you’re in a dying economy.”) Dipper sees this video and gets really pissed and he decides that because he’s got a pretty decent fan following, instead of just posting a comment on the video, he makes his own video to retaliate. (”People don’t just watch our videos to see us play the games, idiot. They watch us because they like our personalities and because watching others play can give you tips on how to play better too.”) Bill of course sees this and he goes out of his way to find Dipper on Twitter and starts throwing shade at him. This results in a feud of sorts between the two YouTubers which quickly gains fame online. One day Bill goes too far and makes a jab at Dipper which really struck him deep (”You’re such a freak, how is it possible for anyone to like you?”) and Dipper declares that he’s done with Bill and the feud and everything and leaves. Bill initially thinks that Dipper’s just joking and that he’ll be back the next day, ready to hit him back with another tweet. When the next day rolls around and Dipper still hasn’t said anything, he tweets him again to try to provoke him and Dipper responds with a simple “Leave me alone, shut up, you’ve won.” Bill is triumphant, but within a few days he quickly realises that he feels restless and is finding less and less inspiration to make his videos, almost as if there is something missing. His spark is not there anymore, and less people are watching his videos now that the feud’s over, in fact he’s getting more hate than ever for being so mean to Dipper and making him give up and leave. A few weeks pass and as his restlessness and guilt increases, he comes to the conclusion that Dipper had actually become a fairly large part of his life over the feud and that with him gone, no longer challenging everything that Bill did and said, Bill’s spark was gone and it felt as if a part of him was missing. When he checks Dipper’s Youtube account he realises that Dipper hasn’t posted anything since the day he left the feud. Bill instantly feels awful and quickly posts a video of apology for Dipper, saying that he didn’t really mean all the awful things he said and asking him to please, please come back because everything seemed unnatural without him around. The video gets a lot of attention, with people telling him that he deserves it, that it was his fault that Dipper wasn’t posting anything anymore, that he shouldn’t back down because he’s already won and what’s he thinking, that they feel bad for him and accept his apology, that they’re gonna try their hardest to help him get the message to Dipper and so on. Eventually, Dipper does see it, and when he does he is cautious and unsure whether or not he can trust him. Eventually, thanks to all the pleading from his followers and Bill, he comes back and posts a video of apology to his fans about not posting for so long. When he comes back everyone rejoices, but Bill doesn’t know what to do. He doesn’t want to (and can’t) start another fight with Dipper, so instead he leaves a comment on his video asking for his forgiveness. Dipper tells him that he’s not sure if he can forgive him yet and Bill gives him his skype so that they can talk to each other and maybe then Dipper can eventually forgive Bill. The two of them start Skyping, at first once in a while and over time more and more frequently until it becomes a daily thing. With the feud behind them, the two of them become fast friends, and this quickly gathers the attention of their fans, who just months ago witnessed the two of them feuding ferociously. They discover that they live in the same city, and they start doing collabs and Q&As together and the fans absolutely love it. Bill starts to notice things like how much he loves Dipper’s messy hair and dry, sarcastic sense of humour and Dipper starts to notice things like how much he loves Bill’s taste in clothes (which really can only be pulled off by Bill) and his weird, explosive attitude. Both of them find themselves slowly falling more and more in love with each other, but neither has the guts to tell the other. Finally one day during one of Dipper’s liveshows (where Bill is guest-starring) Bill decides “Fuck it” and kisses Dipper right there and then in front of the camera and when he pulls back Dipper looks really stunned for a moment and they just stare at each other. Then Dipper breaks into a huge grin, moves one hand to cup Bill’s jaw, turns back to the camera and says “Bye.” then stops recording and of course everyone who was watching just KNOWS what happened and EVERYONE STARTS FREAKING OUT and within the rest of the day the news spreads like wildfire and by the end of the day when Bill posts a video with the title “Meet my new boyfriend” everyone already knows

Okay so first, a question.

I think someone else may have brought this up before - @keyofjetwolf perhaps? - about how they thought it was odd that Minako actually called her Super Sailor Moon, and I have to say I agree (and Jet Wolf please correct me if this wasn’t you!).

Has anyone ever actually CALLED her Super Sailor Moon before? Like to her face (haven’t watched the S arc in a long time)? Why is it necessary? Super Sailor Moon is her power upgrade, but she’s still Sailor Moon, and they’ve always referred to her as such. And you certainly don’t see the senshi in later seasons actually calling each other Super Sailor Mars, etc.

BUT ANYWAY

Haruka’s “I won’t let her die!” is actually killing me. Because at this point in the series, Haruka had been lecturing Usagi about her idealism, how not everyone can be saved all the time and that one (or a few) people dying for the greater good of all was necessary. And here, Usagi is actually about to do just that. She knows the Silver Crystal could take her life, and she’s planning on using it to stop Kaguya (also I’m crying about how when it’s other people in danger or sacrificing themselves, Usagi is all “NO I WILL FIND ANOTHER WAY” but when it’s her turn to lay down her life she’s all “I DON’T CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO ME I JUST WANT TO SAVE EVERYONE”. BASICALLY AS LONG AS EVERYONE ELSE LIVES, USAGI IS OKAY AND THAT JUST DESTROYS ME OMG I LOVE USAGI SO MUCH).

But Haruka won’t allow it. This time, Haruka is being the idealist. They have to find another way BECAUSE HARUKA WON’T LET USAGI DIE.

I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS

Since I’m still seeing people say “But Charlie’s death served x purpose” and “I don’t understand why people are so upset about a character death on Supernatural”, I’m going to explain real quick why I and others are so upset.

See, I could have handled Charlie dying, if she had died the right way. If she had been clever, brave, heroic, if she had gone down swinging. Or if she had made the choice to sacrifice herself to save Dean, as that would have served the narrative in the same function. It’s how they killed her that has me seeing red, because the circumstances of her death were predicated upon her being incredibly stupid and being too ‘stressed’ after bickering with Rowena (insert sexist joke about fiery redheads here). Then she ran and hid in the bathroom and held a knife, and that was all we saw.

Just this season it had been established that Charlie fought and won a war in Oz, that she had a ‘Dark Charlie’ in her, that she could fight and kill the Stynes on her own (even Stynes with both arms), that she was tough enough to give herself dental floss stitches, and also that she’s a genius. But not only does she act like an idiot, she is not allowed to fight this time. She’s so dumb that she doesn’t even try to go out the bathroom window, not to mention that apparently the only weapon she had on her was a tiny knife. Don’t you dare tell me that Charlie isn’t smart and tough enough to have taken down a one-armed Styne. She’s a genius and she’s a hunter.

To further prove my point: we keep talking about how her death parallels Kevin’s, but no, it’s different. Kevin was an academic, a musician, a prophet. He had never fought before, and his attack came camouflaged, without any warning, and it made sense. Kevin was a threat to Metatron, Metatron wanted to test Gadreel’s loyalty, Gadreel wanted to redeem his standing in heaven. The burning out of his eyes was gruesome, but not bloody, and humane compared to Charlie’s death.

Charlie’s death didn’t make any sense. The Styne who killed her only escaped because Sam and Dean only chained him up by one arm, only found her because they didn’t confiscate his phone, and he went after her despite the fact that he should be bleeding to death. She shouldn’t have run off to a hotel by herself without telling anyone where she was going, and she should have known the Stynes were hunting her. Instead of praying to Cas or calling 911, she runs and cowers in the bathroom and calls the boys and uses her last moments to email the key to decoding the Book, instead of ducking out the window or, hell, standing in the middle of the room with a shotgun ready to blow the Styne to kingdom come.

There was no dignity in the image of her broken and bloody corpse dumped in a dirty motel bathtub. At least Kevin died in the bunker, and quickly. Who knows how long it took Charlie to bleed out or what that shitstain did to her before she died alone. And if you don’t know how offensive it is for a Nazi to murder a lesbian then you need to learn more about the Holocaust. 

A series of stupid decisions had to be orchestrated for her death to happen. If anyone had acted with half a brain it wouldn’t have happened. She was treated like a helpless idiot, and then she was treated like garbage. Charlie deserved to die with honor. With meaning. Having used her wits and her strength to their fullest extent. She deserved some fucking dignity, but they didn’t even let her have that. And that’s why, no matter what, I can’t forgive this show for this.

Reid wants her mom to meet the reader (his girlfriend and coworker) so they go to Las Vegas to visit her. (request)

“I want you to meet my mother.” Reid stated cautiously, looking over to see you curled up on the other end of your couch, lost in one of your favourite books.

“You do?” The corner of your lips twitched upwards and you looked up at the boy, who scooted closer to gently wrap an arm around your shoulders.

“She would love you. She already does just from what I tell her because you make me happy. She’s dying to meet you.” He reached a hand up to rub soothing circles at the back of your neck, enjoying the silky, familiar feel beneath his fingertips. “I want the two most important people in my life to know each other.”

“Well, I can’t say no to meeting the woman behind the genius.”

Good News is meant to be shared.

I don’t believe in forcing anyone to believe in Jesus. That isn’t His style, and it isn’t mine either. On the other hand, I see so many young Christians adopting the “don’t say anything because you don’t want to offend anyone” style and that is exactly what the enemy wants people to do with the gospel. Do you think Jesus held back His words of truth because He didn’t want to offend people? Are you kidding? This guy didn’t hold back ANYTHING, which even led Him to the Cross. He literally spoke truth to His enemies WHILE HE WAS TAKING HIS LAST FEW BREATHS. He believed the truth was worth saying, and worth dying for. Let’s get over ourselves, over our fears, and tell people (in love) the Good News. Have courage! Good News isn’t meant to be held in forever, it’s meant to be shared.

really not here for the new netflix original series: narcos

look i get that it looks ~exciting

but as a colombian it’s really tiring to only see this image of my country in international tv, because it reinforces the stereotype that colombians equal drugs.

i’m really fucking tired of a lot of people from other countries only knowing about pablo escobar and café when i mention colombia. we are much more than that! MUCH MORE THAN THAT!

it’s also annoying that both colombian tv and international tv want to make money out of the suffering of our people. drug cartels and the guerrillas still exist in colombia and still fuck with politics and people’s everyday lives!

it may not be as bad as before. there aren’t bombs in bogotá anymore. there aren’t as many people being brutally murdered because of this conflict. but it’s definitely NOT over. people are still dying because of it. people are still paying fares to the guerrillas (who, even though they are smaller and not nearly as powerful as before, are now mixed with the drug cartels) in some of our rural areas so they can live there. people are still being kicked out of their lands because they won’t pay those fares. 

it’s insensitive that so many of these tv shows created around colombian drug cartels only talk about the drugs and the assholes behind them instead of focusing on the terrible effects that’s this has had on our people and our economy and our everyday life.

just… it’d be better to watch a documentary that actually depicts all the terrible things that come from these people, the lack of humanity, the lack of remorse and compassion, and at the same time the strength of the colombian people who fight them, instead of watching novelas and tv shows ~glamorizing and glorifying~ the cartels. 

maybe don’t watch it? but if u do, also read/watch documentaries so u know how bad it really was (and for some, still is).

Just wtf.

“You like SebaCiel/Ereri, so you support pedophilia and child pornography”

Omg, you all are so right. I have lots of children tied up at home to take pictures of them and to sell them. Yay, yummy.

So… if you like Bobobo, you support people who cut others’ hair. Also, you support a guy hitting everyone, even his best friends.

If you like Naruto, you actually like children exploitation because we don’t even care about the era/context. Of course.

If you like Shingeki no Kyojin, you like the previous one, but even worse because they’re sent to DIE. That’s it. That’s the plan. You like seeing teens dying in a horrible way.

If you like Elfen Lied… ok, I don’t even have the need to explain this one. Just. You like killing. Naked. With horns and that stuff. 

If you like Evangelion, you like children being all depressed and with that urge to die and to kill.

If you like Peter Pan, you like children being kidnapped.

If you like Sleeping Beauty, you support rape. That kiss went without consent.

If you like Game of Thrones, UFH, YOU SUPPORT A LOT OF HORRIBLE THINGS. LIKE IDK, CHILD ABUSE, KIDNAPPING, MURDER, MANIPULATION, INCEST, CHILDREN EXPLOITATION, SEXISM, ABUSE IN GENERAL…


Yeah, I could keep on writing because that’s such a stupid argument. I laughed my ass off because of that. Haters can be funny. Just because I love Ciel with Sebastian, I support pedophilia and child pornography… like… nope. Before, ages, centuries ago, Ciel was considered mature and an adult, that’s just a thing you have to take into account, my precious haters. Then… our parents… our grandparents… Oh. 15 years gap. 20 years gap. And our mothers/grandmothers/whatever were minors, lots of them. 

Secondly… just… what. I don’t have to write anything else to make myself clear and to be right. If Sebastian raped Ciel, well, I would understand your anger. But you’re all bored people. Let shippers live. Hakuna Matata, people.

Also, I still find incredibly horrible that you say to shippers to go die. That’s so fucking… non human.

#BlackLivesMatter

As a YOUNG, BLACK, and EDUCATED WOMAN, I’m sitting here wondering what it is I can do to prevent EVER being stopped by a police officer. OR, how can I prevent my other fellow BLACKS from getting stopped by an outraged cop.

There is literally nothing we can do anymore!!

So many of our people have been taking from us and for what? LIVING??

All that I have been taught growing up is you just do what the cops tell you to do. But I see people DYING from doing what they are told. As we are human, we have rights too!! It seems as though if you are BLACK, you have no RIGHTS! That as BLACK FEMALE AND MALE we should just do what the cops say because WE DONT MATTER???

WE DO MATTER!!!!

I don’t know what kind of reset button America is trying to push, where BLACKS and other POC have absolutely NO say and NO RIGHTS, but that shit WILL change!!

I need to know what can we do my melanin filled people???? Seriously.

I’m so SICK of is dying for:

-being a kid
-following the law
-knowing our rights
-having our hands up
-walking to the store
-selling cigarettes
-just being BLACK

EVERYTHING!!!

And if I see one more black person saying #AllLivesMatter I’m going to lose it!! CUT that shit out!!

Y’all see this brand?  Blue Buffalo?  Don’t feed it to your animal.  It has killed too many cats and dogs, and made others sick.  My grandmother hadn’t realized this food was killing our dog until we had to put him down.  Apparently a lot of people have complained about this food and what it did to their pets, but Blue Buffalo just doesn’t seem to give a damn. They keep charging you for quality dog/cat food, and giving you food that’s dangerous for your pet.

Please, for the sake of your furry little friend, don’t feed them Blue Buffalo.  Find something else that won’t hurt them.  I see a lot of people on tumblr buying this for their dogs, excited to feed it to their animals for the first time.  I also see others dealing with their animals getting sick, and some even dying.  Please just reblog the hell out of this.   I don’t want to see anyone else losing their pets because of this food brand.   

People’s stories about what happened to their animals can be found at http://www.consumeraffairs.com/pets/blue_buffalo.html

I thought its purpose was to help our people,but am I wrong?
If the answer is different,please tell me.
What do you think is the purpose of the Imperial Court?As long as taxes are paid,you don’t care if the payers are different than the previous time?
Somewhere,don’t you believe that no matter how many people die,others will be born?
Somewhere,don’t you think that our people are disposable?That they can be replaced?
Aren’t you forgetting that,in a faraway land,there are people clinging to life,dying and crying?
Because you can’t see the faces of our people,you may feel that they are all the same.
But each one of them is a irreplaceable existence to somebody!
As government officials,whom should we protect?
There are matters that an individual cannot accomplish,but I have this power now!
The Kou Shuurei of a year ago could not have done this.
What is the point of having power,if one does not make use of it?
Even when in these hands,there is the power to save people?!!

Kou Shuurei - Governor of Sa Province. 

cant wait for arcade israel gannon, better known as arcade, enclave remnant, followers of the apocalypse doctor, and potential companion to courier six, to stage his dramatic return in fallout: new orleans as a safe, happy, and healthy man, who stays hydrated and exfoliates, cant wait, am so excited, honestly so pumped, it will be so nice and #refreshing to see arcade again, i love how happy and full of life he is, i just love how much he knows he is valued and cared for by other people, “he cant come back because some of his fnv endings involve him dying”, interesting, but consider this alternative: eating my entire ass, im so glad arcade gannon is coming back,

Leigh Anne Tuohy Update: One Of The Teens Responds

One of the two teens involved in Leigh Anne Tuohy’s recent social media stunt has spoken out on Instagram (his name has been blurred out for privacy): 

Person One aka Teen Leigh Anne Tuohy approached at KFC:

Yeah people don’t know what really happened because I actually had money I have a job and have had one for over a year I was gonna pay for my brother the other guy in the picture but he was insisting on waiting on his uncle but his phone was dying so we were charging it which is the reason we were in KFC in the first place.and the game was only a 3 min walk up the street I don’t see why she said bus fare that kinda ticked me off a little but the way she worded it is making us sound less fortunate and that isn’t the case at all & when she came over to us she never mentioned her initial reason was because of her friends comment im just now finding that out

Person Two:

May I ask how she asked for the photo?

Person One:

Yeah she never actually asked for it as she was handing us the money she was like “hey you know what I think this would be a great picture” and everyone with her was yeah totally so we just kinda went along with the situation like sure why not your Michael Oher’s mom but the whole time I was thinking you know why’d she come up to us in the first place I was still clueless up until she posted the picture on social media and stated “the person with me said I bet they’re up to no good.”

I’ve seen other people on my dash mention that they’ve already started to see some celebrity death hoaxes cropping up on Twitter and Tumblr as the result of April Fool’s Day. On the behalf of the Glee fandom who not that long ago went through the traumatic loss of one of our own when Cory Monteith died, I’m begging everyone on this site: please, please don’t post that anyone has died, even as a joke, because a) someone dying isn’t funny, like ever b) even if it’s clear to you that it’s just a joke, there’s bound to be someone who will think it’s legitimate c) it could be triggering to someone. Bottom line: April Fool’s Day is not an excuse to be an asshole.

I keep thinking about this

It’s kinda fucked up how straight people pretend like gay people and straight people are equal now that gay marriage is legalized when they literally waited until it was culturally irrelevant to legalize it. Gay marriage was super important during the AIDS epidemic when no cure was being researched and loved ones were dying alone in the ICU because partners who had been together for years werent allowed to tell their loved ones goodbye. And now that HIV/AIDS is practically curable and a very manageable disease they finally give us gay marriage. They kill us in the thousands then give us our rights when they’re not important anymore. Straight people will offer us band-aids while we bleed to death.

gonna rep the invisible physical illnesses today for #noshameday because people still give me dirty looks for getting up out of my wheelchair and walking around when i need it for travelling lol. yes, my legs function. yes, i can walk. no, that doesn’t make me any less disabled or disadvantaged than other people with physical handicaps.

i went from a healthy teenager to a bed-bound, weak, and barely functioning one in a single day, out of nowhere, for absolutely no reason. it’s been 3 years now and my doctors still can’t pinpoint my illness. it’s terrifying having no idea what’s wrong with you, but still feeling like you’re dying every day nonetheless. it’s even more terrifying when nobody can see it, because the majority won’t believe you or understand the severity. the closest i can get to a diagnosis is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (or M.E.), because that’s the umbrella term most doctors lump you under if you have crippling fatigue and they can’t find anything in test results that should be the cause of it. i like to tell people it kinda feels like you’re having the worst hangover in your life while also having the worst flu in your life and then you try to run an uphill marathon in a desert, but even that doesn’t do it justice. but the worst part is that i can’t study (i had to give up my scholarship) or work or do much of anything that i want to do in life.. i think i’m still in denial about it all tbh

fun fact: i had quite a hard time taking these pictures as i do with most pictures i take. holding the phone up tires my arm out and standing up in a static position is something i cannot do for very long, so i had to bend over and catch my breath multiple times in the process

The Message You've Been Waiting For

Here’s the bottom line: Everybody wants to be heard. Everybody wants to be seen. Once you see that, you SEE people. You understand their actions more. I know and I sense that this generation of young people is dying to be heard. Dying to be seen.

Because we are individually, dying to be seen, we forget that we can liberate others through actually seeing them, hearing them, encouraging them. We can liberate each other from these heavy shackles strapped over our spirits.

We have to SEE each other.

Respect each other.

ENCOURAGE each other.

Love each other.

Love says, “I love you despite your bad behavior. Your actions may have been bad, but YOU, your essence, your soul, your being is not bad.

I feel like so many of us feel inadequate, broken, not enough, and just tarnished. We are not.

We are NOT.

We are so radiant and we must see that. We must step into our light. There is NO competition.

There’s enough room in this world for everyone to BE themselves and to SHINE.

We can ALL shine.

My shine doesn’t deflect, diminish or dim your shine. Your shine doesn’t deflect, diminish or dim my shine.  

I love you. Even if I don’t know you, I love you. You are divine. You are ENOUGH. The world needs you. You have gifts the world needs to see. Don’t be afraid of your gift.

You are important. Nobody is insignificant. 

Sincerely,

Brittany Josephina

i want shadowhunters to get more seasons because they can create original characters and make them poc and/or lgbt+. like, they don’t have to stick with the characters that the books have. 

and because they have the chance to show our heroes dealing with the things that happen to them instead of just being focused on their hormones. i want to see clary having panic attacks after nearly dying a million times. i want to see jace going through depression after valentine comes back and he finds out he can’t be with clary. i want to see someone with ptsd (they’re in battle all the time and no one has any sort of ptsd? that’d be really odd). i want to see people from other countries coming to new york or idris and interacting with the main cast. i want to see commentary on sexism, racism, transphobia and homophobia in the context of the shadow world as a message to the audience about our world. i know they can’t put these things into what they’ve already written/filmed but i think that when the show gets picked up for more episodes, they should consider all of this.
