One Direction BSM#7- Your Fist Christmas.

Niall- Today is your very first Christmas. You of course didn’t know what all the fuss was about; it seemed like an ordinary day. So you started it like one. Waking up everyone in house up early around 4am for a feed, Niall came in and took you out of your crib down to kitchen to where your mum was busy warming up your milk in the microwave and moved you into the living room where there was a Christmas tree with its colourful lights glowing and presents under the tree in Christmassy wrapping paper addressed to you, including the rest of the boys. Niall sat on the couch with you resting against his chest until your mum came in with the milk and fed you. As you were too young to open your presents, Niall and your mum opened them for you, but they were mainly things like onesies and toys for you. After all of the presents were opened the guests started arrive for Christmas dinner.

Harry-  You hadn’t really been told about Christmas as you were 4 months old, so when all the decorations were up you were beyond confused. So when Christmas morning arrived, you were woken up to someone carrying down the stairs and soft singing in your ear you looked up to see your brother, Harry smiling sown at you. When you reached the bottom of the stairs Harry set you down in the living room where you mum, dad and sister were waiting by the Christmas tree for you. You crawled to your mum making grabby hands for her to pick you up. “Good morning (y/n)” she smiled at you. “Go Nornin” you tried to repeat half asleep. Everyone laughed at you fail attempt to say your first words. “Right Harry and Gemma, open your presents first,” Robin said as he knew it would be more of a struggle if you opened your presents first. When they had opened all of his presents it was your turn, your mum sat you down on the floor in-between her and Harry. Your mum got your first present and started to open it a little bit so you could actually open it and passed it to you. You tried to open it but only took a little piece off. You let it drop and laughed as it fell to the floor, so instead you mum unwrapped all of your presents for you, so she could get ready and start preparing the Christmas dinner for family.

    Zayn- It was your first memorable Christmas. Christmas morning you ran into your brothers room. You saw he were still asleep, you feel bad about what you were going to do because he was sleeping but you were really excited to open your presents, you put all that aside and started to jump on the bed and shout “Zayn! Santa came!” He immediately woke up and started laughing at how excited you are. Once you were worn out from jumping you sat down on the bed and Zayn pulled you closer to him, you thought you were going to get a cuddle but you were wrong when he started to tickle you “Zayn stop!” you said in-between laughter. When he stopped you grabbed one of his hands and lead him to the living room where the whole living room was covered in presents. Once all of the presents it looked like Santa’s workshop had exploded with discarded wrapping paper and all of you new toys everywhere. Once everywhere was tidied you got ready to go round families houses for more presents.

Liam- You were 16, and it was Christmas. Every Christmas your mum and dad told you the same story of you first Christmas that you could probably recite it. They remember all of the details like how you used to pull the babuls off of the tree and throw them under it and crawl away as if nothing had happened or the fact that when you ate you had to be fed or you would spill it down yourself or how you had to show everyone what you got from Santa that day. It was totally embarrassing! Like today all of the boys and their wives/girlfriends and children and all your family were round and your mum and dad told you that they were going to put on the old home Christmas movies so that’s when you took it upon yourself to get the disk that held the embarrassing stories on and destroy it. That is until the time came to watch the movies and everyone was sat down ready to watch. “Babe do you know where I put the disk?” your dad asked your mum. “I thought you put it in the DVD player?” your mum said. “I thought I did but it’s not here” your dad said. Then his eyes were on you as you were smirking. “What have you done with the disk (y/n)?” he asked “N-nothing,” he said trying to hold in your laughter. All eyes were on you “Fine I guess we shall have to watch it on my laptop then!” he said smiling. “WHAT!?” you yelled. He smirked “Didn’t think that I wouldn’t have it backed up on my laptop love?” he asked. You groaned and hid your face in your hands while everyone laughed. Let the teasing begin.

Louis- It was Christmas Day and your mum was bringing you home from the hospital. You were born two days ago but you had to stay in hospital because they wanted to run some tests on you to see if everything was ok. When you got home with your mum, everyone was round family from both your mum and dad’s side and the boys and their wives all cooing at you. Louis took you from your mum and gently rocked you; you yawned and snuggled closer to his chest. Your mum looked at you and Louis and how adorable you two looked, he noticed at said “Go get some sleep mum; I’ll be fine with her.” So your mum went upstairs to her and Louis’ shared room to sleep. Louis sat down with you on his lap and started passing you round to everyone. Once you were handed back to him he mumbled “Best Christmas gift ever” and took you upstairs for your nap.

Just To Make Happy Someone Like You | Ron/Hermione

title | ffnet | AO3

Ron Weasley liked being an Auror very, very much. There were several perks to the job: the fact that he got to work with Harry, its active and fast-paced nature, the fact that he felt he was doing something that contributed to society in a positive way. The generous salary was another bonus, he couldn’t deny that. But the number one reason Ron Weasley liked being an Auror was that there was no homework.

The documentation for the cases they worked on was far too sensitive to be taken outside of approved locations within the Ministry, and so although there were far too many long and boring hours writing up endless reports, this didn’t have to be done in his free time. He didn’t mind working hard, but he did hate the idea of his leisure time being filled with work, too.

There were trade-offs, of course: nightshifts; endless hours of surveillance where he had to remain totally still and quiet for hours on end; a big case coming in and resulting in all leave being cancelled, and extended hours in the office with barely any time to eat or sleep. But, watching Hermione make her way through caseload after caseload, doing another six, seven or even eight hours of work at home after a full day in the chambers made him very, very grateful for the lack of something similar.

That night, he wasn’t watching Hermione work. This was because she was entirely hidden behind huge piles of books, and only the fact that he could see her feet (resting on Crookshanks) under the desk and hear the occasional sigh of exasperation let him know she was still there. It was, he reflected, a particular shame, because the books blocked her view of the Christmas tree he’d purchased on the way home from work, which was currently standing in the corner of the room with two boxes next to it, waiting to be decorated.

It may still have been early December—too early, really, to put up the tree—but he was determined it was going to be done tonight. Not really out of any extreme fit of festive spirit, but because it would stop Hermione from killing herself with work for…oh, maybe half an hour.

Whats wrong with DashCon?

I am so very glad you asked.


DashCon is a first-year fandom convention for Tumblr users. It has been happening all throughout this weekend and is turning into possibly the largest convention kerfuffle anyone has ever seen.

  • Due to the DashCon staff done diddly goofin’ by not putting a payment schedule in their hotel reservation contract, they were asked to pay $20,000 by 10 PM last night or the convention would be kicked out of the hotel. They asked attendees and Tumblr users to donate $17,000 via PayPal and cash to keep the con going - and they supposedly raised all of the money. Con attendees then piled into the ballroom to do Mockingjay salutes and wail Freddie Mercury songs to celebrate them falling for what is suspected to be a scam (as people have contacted the hotel to ask about this “$17,000 fee” and the hotel reportedly has no idea what they’re talking about).
  • You can attend wonderfully informative panels like this at DashCon:

  • DashCon claimed there would be 3,000-7,000 attendees. There are 1,000 at most and all of them are white kids in flower crowns who are rioting for the anti-sexualization of women in media while simultaneously running panels about “homoerotic subtext in fandoms and finding the gay ships for YOUR fandoms!!!”
  • The con didn’t have the money to cover WTNV’s transportation and performance fees. When WTNV asked them to pay the remainder of their performance fee prior to the panel beginning, DashCon was unable to do so, and WTNV walked out as they are positively free to do because what the fuck you don’t invite keystone guests if you aren’t able to pay their fees upfront (and showing them your PayPal balance on a smartphone absolutely does not count).
  • It’s being speculated that Steam Powered Giraffe was not even booked properly in the first place.
  • A full weekend badge was $65 dollars for a first-year fandom con jesus christ that’s almost the price of most full-fledged comic cons.
  • The game room consists of some tables, one TV, and one gaming console. No, really, that’s it.
  • DashCon proves they have possibly the worst PR team ever when addressing the WTNV cancellation. Instead of clearly explaining the situation, they say they “don’t want to get into it,” and then offer compensation for those who bought advanced seating tickets for the Night Vale show. What’s the compensation? An extra hour playing in the ball pit (which is really just a slowly-deflating children’s pool with some balls in it). Oh, and if there’s room, you may get one of the first-come-first-serve spots at the Time Crash concert that was happening on Saturday night. Huzzah!
  • Most panels are completely disorganized. The “Name That Anime” panel was even handing out hotel mints as prizes for correctly answering questions like “what’s the anime where they fight with clothes!!!”
  • It’s been pointed out that as a Marriott hotel, the Renaissance would have required them to submit their full reservation payment 5 days in advance of the event. Therefore it’s very, very likely that the “$17,000 fundraising” was a huge scam. Because DashCon would’ve had to pay that money 5 days before this weekend or the event wouldn’t even be happening in the first place.
  • Furthermore, someone attempted to debunk the letter that DashCon posted to prove that the hotel asked for money. Not all their points are valid (i.e. “RE:” is commonly used for “Regarding”, not just in response to previous communication, and idk but this dude doesn’t strike me as an expert on internal Marriott stationary), but frankly the letter looks sketchy if only because 17000% 99% of it is whited out. Is it real? Is it fake? We just don’t know.
  • There has been no confirmation that the money donated in cash and via PayPal last night ever made it to the hotel (if that was indeed where it was intended to go).
  • People are demanding full or at least partial refunds. Needs verification, but purportedly DashCon has a list at the con where you can sign your name and the amount you donated to be refunded later. Which sounds like a totally effective and not at all easily-abused system. [Verified: x]
  • Attendees are either in denial saying this is the best con ever or they’re crying and having panic attacks. Welcome to Tumblr.
  • And as a bonus: DashCon originally ran an IndieGoGo campaign last year to raise $5,000 to start their convention. They raised $4,000. The campaign ended in April 2013 and rewards have still not been sent out (which consisted of tea bags, a couple business cards with your Tumblr URL on them, and if you donated $500+, some knick-knacks from Etsy), which leads us to…
  • It turns out that the prizes for the “consolation raffle” are the reward gifts for IndieGoGo donors. Yeah.
  • Possibly art theft by DashCon for the nebula graphic in their banner?
  • Gingerhaze decided to leave the con early after discovering DashCon wouldn’t be covering her hotel room anymore and she was charged the full bill. She is now sleeping on a pull-out sofa with the WTNV folks who threw some massive shade. BakerStBabes completed their convention duties as promised and then left as soon as that was done. Doug Jones stayed on premise for a while, but eventually left earlier this morning.
  • In this post from 11 months ago, con head Megg33k explains that they had “rented out the vast majority of their convention space and set aside nearly every room in their hotel” and that there was a “legally binding contract and the exchange of money.” They also signed a contract and had “monetary obligation” in regards to Steam Powered Giraffe, so I’m curious as to how that appearance fell apart. She also states that Doug Jones was paid in advance, so he should at least be good for appearing on Sunday (if he hasn’t already skedaddled, that is).
  • DashCon isn’t a registered LLP in Illinois - so technically they’re operating illegally, as their LLP is only registered in Ohio.
  • A personal account of the early stages of DashCon: fundraising committees, miscommunication, and a web series scam!
  • Some insight into Cain Hopkins, one of the head admins of DashCon:

  • An update from a friend whose company is a vendor at DashCon this weekend:

  • They have attempted to show both Pacific Rim and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog without the legal rights to host a public viewing party. At this point they’re basically just piling on the lawsuits.
  • Two staff members have popped into the DashCon thread on 4chan’s /cgl/ board in an attempt to defend the con. It’s going about as well as you would expect.
  • On the plus side, the Homoerotic Subtext panel was completely different than what the DashCon schedule made it sound like and in reality was pretty ballin’.
  • Supposedly this Tumblr user posted a full version of the letter from the hotel to DashCon staff. However, it is not real. If you’ll notice, the original letter as the amount due written as “$20,000.00” whereas in this version it’s only “$20,000”. The formatting also does not line up correctly. (Too bad it isn’t real, though, that’d be a riot.)
  • Another witness account describes how DashCon “collected money in a bag” during the $17,000 debacle. They also took names on an email list to issue WTNV refunds at a later date. Who wants to take bets that said refund never happens?
  • This video shows the moment when it was announced that WTNV left the convention.
  • DashCon is making news headlines.
  • Staff tries to start rumors that WTNV was paid and left anyways. No one believes it.
  • People are debating whether or not out-of-state businesses require an Illinois LLP to operate within Illinois, or if they only have to pay a $500 registration fee (which we have no confirmation of DashCon doing so).
  • The act of offering extra play time in the ball pit as compensation for the WTNV tickets could easily turn into another lawsuit, as they did not originally charge an entrance fee for the ball pit, therefore giving it no comparable monetary worth to compensate for the purchase of event tickets.
  • Attendees and staff are attempting to start the conspiracy theory that 4Chan ruined DashCon.
  • Like Gingerhaze and WTNV, the BakerStBabes are also being forced to pay their hotel fees because DashCon refuses to cover the costs as originally promised. Admins are refusing their calls. You can read more about their experience here.
  • The artist and vendor hall has essentially cleared out.
  • Please note that dashcon-staff is a fake Tumblr account.
  • Finally, here’s a video of con admin Cain describing his experience during the $17,000 fundraising events of Friday night.

Big shout out to hythe for all of this fan-dabby-babulous info.

India state minister on rape: ‘Sometimes it’s right, sometimes it’s wrong’

Home minister in BJP-run Madhya Pradesh state describes rape as a 'social crime’ in comments playing down rapes

June 5 2014

A state minister from Indian prime minister Narendra Modi’s ruling party has described rape as a “social crime”, saying “sometimes it’s right, sometimes it’s wrong”, in the latest controversial remarks by an Indian politician about rape.

The political leaders of Uttar Pradesh, the state where two cousins aged 12 and 14 were raped and hanged last week, have faced criticism for failing to visit the scene and for accusing the media of hyping the story.

A regional politician from Modi’s own Bharatiya Janata party (BJP), said that the crime of rape can only be considered to have been committed if it is reported to police.

“This is a social crime which depends on men and women. Sometimes it’s right, sometimes it’s wrong,” said Babulal Gaur, the home minister responsible for law and order in the BJP-run central state of Madhya Pradesh.

“Until there’s a complaint, nothing can happen,” he told reporters.

Gaur also expressed sympathy with Mulayam Singh Yadav, head of the regional Samajwadi party that runs Uttar Pradesh. In the recent election, Mulayam criticised legal changes that foresee the death penalty for gang rape, saying: “Boys commit mistakes: will they be hanged for rape?”

The BJP dismissed Gaur’s comments as an expression of his personal views, and not the party’s.

Modi, who was sworn in as prime minister last week after a landslide election victory, has so far remained silent over the double killing in the village of Katra Shahadatganj, around half a day’s drive east of Delhi.

The father and uncle of one of the victims said they tried to report the crime to local police but were turned away. Three men have been arrested over the killings. Two policemen have been held on suspicion of trying to cover up the crime.

Although a rape is reported in India every 21 minutes on average, law enforcement failures mean that such crimes – a symptom of pervasive sexual and caste oppression – are often not reported or properly investigated, human rights groups say.

More sex crimes have come to light in recent days. A woman in a nearby district of Uttar Pradesh was gang-raped, forced to drink acid and strangled to death. Another was shot dead in northeast India while resisting attackers, media reports said.

The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, has said he was “especially appalled” by the rape and murder of the two girls.

“We say no to the dismissive, destructive attitude of, 'Boys will be boys’,” he said in a statement this week that made clear his contempt for the language used by Mulayam Singh Yadav.
