I know that WE know that Lydia loves stiles but when he said "you don't have to", I'm just confused as to how he knew....her feelings weren't as obvious

1. they are emotional tethers (they can communicate through DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS let alone face to face)

2. just the fact that she tells him “i didn’t say it back implies that she wants to

3. “[stiles] knew, he paid attention to her, he remembered.” 

4. how can

he NOT know

when she looks at him

like this

she’s so in love with him; he just knows.

Guys, what if at Wrestlemania...
  • Seth: *limping backstage after his match*
  • Dean: *comes to help him*
  • Seth: *confused* Wait, after all what I've done with you, you're... helping me? Why?
  • Dean: Because we're brothers. We argue, we fight, we screw each other. But at the end of the day, everything is forgiving. I had my revenge at MITB, it's all done with me...
  • Dean: ... but if you don't want my help, I'm not forcing you...
  • Seth: *interrupting Dean* NO, NO... I want. Thank you.
  • Dean: You're welcome.
  • Dean and Seth: *walk together in the backstage*

Okay, what have we learned today?

Loki is definitely in Infinity War and will work together with Thanos:

(others describe it as Loki hands the tesseract to Thanos. Loki is dirty and grimy. etc.)

And the shooting for Avengers: Infinity War is - despite other reports of it being wrapped - just halfway through. 

(I think the confusion might be, because they shoot 3 + 4 one after another and wanted to shoot them simultanously in the beginning. So knowing how filming works it is likely that they will now mainly work on the 4 one, but re-shoots and additional shoots for Infinity War still happen over the next few months, whenever they need it.)

AND: It is likely that Tom Hiddleston is filming in Atlanta right now.

I think that this pretty much confirms that Tom’s schedule this year is pretty much packed. 

He might be able to fit in projects between shooting, but as Tom seems to prefer to focus on one bigger project at a time, we might not get a new announcement for a movie until late this year. This year he is once again mainly playing Loki.

anonymous asked:

How do you interpret the waterfall scene in tfp where sherlock envisions it? if we truly are in john's mind bungalow then that doesn't make sense... I don't subscribe to the dream within a dream within a dream theory because of its complicated and (imo) anticlimactic nature, and s4 does seem to be from john's pov due to the sherlock/ mary being friends thing and john's self-deprecation and sense of uselessness which is illustrated in numerous instances. But this waterfall is confusing!

I love that y’all want to hear my thoughts on this stuff, but you might be disappointed b/c nothing like this is bothering me. 

For me, the meaning of S4 is not unlocked by simply asking, “whose POV is it?” or “whose dream is it?” or “whose head are we in?” I don’t think the window we get into anyone’s head this season is from the unfiltered, raw perspective of a dream, or from being “in” one person’s head at all. Being “in” someone’s head implies for me that we’re privy to the thoughts they haven’t yet shared, an unedited version of things. I think what we’re seeing in S4 is a final, highly edited, polished product of the story that John wants to sell to the public, the story that gives one explanation of how Mary died and John ended up back at Baker Street, but for various reasons that shine through if you look hard enough, is not the real one. Fresh paint to disguise another smell.  

The Great Game was never solved by being able to answer “whose dream” or “whose POV.” It’s about reading in between the inconsistencies of a story sold to the public to extract the truth.

And in writing, Watson was never covering for just himself, either. Any detail that John couldn’t have known himself is easily read as a flourish added by Sherlock on final review before the story goes to print. Frankly, every time there’s an aside conversation in S4 about oh jeez, what about Rosie, what’s the gender of the kid who died, what’s Greg’s name, etc. etc. is, in my mind, a tiny breach of the fourth wall where John and his cadre of editors are making sure he’s keeping the story straight. The official story at the beginning of T6T was reviewed by committee, after all.

My muggle boyfriend has invited me to go to his older brother's wedding as his 'add one' (I believe that's what he said) and I'm not sure what I should be wearing. He told me that he isn't ready for them to know that I'm a wizard and I need to blend in. I asked him to help me find an outfit and he said to just wear 'a nice suit'. A nice suit of what? I'm very confused, and I don't want to embarrass him in front of his parents because they already don't like me much. Please help! Thank you.

When going to a muggle wedding we suggest that you wear a cotton or polyester blend suit. Above are a few examples of appropriate suits. The more flowered and flamboyant the better! This is traditional formal wear for a muggle wedding and will surely impress the parents of your boyfriend. Good luck!

Do you think sugaring classifies as prostitution? My friend said it is since you're getting paid for services that revolve around sex and I'm confused now. I'm currently searching for a SD, and I have nothing against escorts, but I also don't want to think of myself as one of that makes sense

Sorry honey but you’re gonna have to get over yourself.

You’re sucking dick for money, let it settle in and accept it. Sugaring is sex work, escorting is sex work and we are all one in the same, if you keep this mentality that “you don’t want to think of yourself as an escort” then you’re gonna end up getting ripped off because of your “morals” or whatever.

IT’S SEX WORK

anonymous asked:

(Same anon) What's your thoughts on Black witches being included in possible creative projects done to try remove the negative conotations on witches and educate people on different types of witchcraft, if done respectfully with proper reaserch? I mean in paticular voodoo, hoodoo etc. (I personally only practice celtic paganism with hedge witchcraft and have my roots pretty set in wales so i don't know much about it yet, but I want to try include it)

When it comes to america, black witches have been ridiculed, thrown to side, beaten, and sometimes killed because we do what we do. Then in the last 50 or so years, white witches just picked up voodoo and hoodoo from us, put their name on it, changed it up a bit, and said “Yep, this is it.” And now, you got black witches everywhere (and some no-black witches who actually see whats going on) confused and frustrated because everytime you turn around you have books and websites saying this originated from Africa and from the slaves that came from the Atlantic Slave Trade, but the authors and writers and publishers are all white. Its hella upsetting.

Thats why its imperative that more and more black witches start teaching our shit, because thats exactly what it is. Ours. I will say with hoodoo, because it’s a mixture of African, Latin, Appalachian Granny Magic, and Native American practices, anyone can practice. I know some people will disagree with me, but hoodoo is a practice, not a religion. Hoodoo, though, is mostly used by black (christian) people and therefore, my other opinion would be that black people should be at the forefront of teaching and passing on the information.

Voodoo is strictly for black people. But there is nothing wrong with an over view and bit of education on what voodoo is. Knowledge is power. But should Black people be teaching and educating? Yep. 100%. Of course your gonna have those few exceptions, but when it comes to African practices black people should be included in the education process. 

And to top it all off, black people(and other POCs) should most defiantly be included in the eradication of negative connotations given to us. Black is not bad. Being black is not bad. Being black and practicing black magic and “black magic” is not bad. There are other practices that aren’t Wiccan, and not every practitioner believes in not harming everyone. Then on the flip side, we need to acknowledge there are black people who wont follow what there ancestors did and do something completely different. And thats fine. Of course, there always a debate on whether black people should create their own spaces or should be invited more into white spaces, and I say both. The more faces out there, the better and more inclusive the witchcraft community will be.

The am/pm thing stands for ante/post meridiem (literally before/after midday, or 12:00 noon.) So the afternoon 12:01 comes after midday and gets the pm. (Don't get me wrong, it's confusing as heck. Just another example of how we do things by our own weird off the wall logic because nothing can be simple in America apparently lol)

yeah I was just thinking, if you want the am and pm thing so bad, why not starting the day with 0? Or are you doing that and just say 12? I have no clue. The world is confusing as heck. Especially America :D

Of all the terrible things Bucky had done, this might actually be the worst. Tony was staring at him in confusion, coffee cup halfway to his lips. Perhaps Bucky should have picked a better time for this, but he wanted to get it over with as soon as possible.

“I’m sorry, what?” Tony asked, but his words lacked their usual confidence.

“I said, we should break up.” Bucky managed to maintain eye contact, but it took everything he had.

Tony blinked, his coffee cup lowering. Bucky could see the walls beginning to slam shut — Tony always hid behind them when he felt insecure or hurt.

“Okay. I admit that was sudden.” Tony sounded indifferent, but Bucky knew better. It was the carefree kind of nonchalance that Tony used whenever he felt like he’d lost control of the situation. Unsurprisingly, his boyfriend of six months suddenly dumping him without warning qualified as one of those times.

With effort, Bucky kept going, reminding himself that he had to do this. There was no other way. “Yeah, I know,” he said. “We gave it a try, but I don’t think it’s gonna work.”

Bucky hated himself.

anonymous asked:

Hey, normally I would ask my rabbi this sort of thing, but it's less a halachic question and more and 'opinion of more observant women' question, so you seemed like a better place to ask. I'm married, and while I do not cover my hair consistently, on some Shabbats/holidays/days when I just generally want to feel tangibly closer to my faith, I will wear a scarf. I'm careful to not fully cover my hair, because I don't want to confuse people about my observance level. (Part 1 of 2)

But I wondered, do frum women find it annoying/offensive when non-frum Jewish women do this? Does it seem like we are faking something? (Part 2 of 2)

Mitzvos are not the exclusive property of frum women/people. As a Jew - no labels, just a plain old Jew - you are not only entitled to do this mitzvah, it is just as much incumbent upon you as it is upon any other married Jewish woman. If it’s not in the cards right now to do it all the time, that does not preclude you from doing it sometimes. Judaism is not an all-or-nothing religion: every single mitzvah, and every single time that any given mitzvah is done, has its own inherent value irrespective of whether it is done on a regular basis or in tangent with other mitzvos. 

Please keep doing this mitzvah - and do not feel like there is any need not to cover all your hair or to set yourself apart in any other way! If anyone takes issue with a fellow Jew doing a mitzvah, it is they who have the problem, not you.

I have to get this off my chest and am open to responses that try to listen or explain the concepts to me.

I don’t understand furries.

Like, I get it as a hobby or a fetish, but I don’t understand a preference for being acknowledged as a dog/cat/whatever and not as a human being. That’s the part I don’t get.

I understand trans people feeling like they were born in the wrong body, but I don’t understand it with furries. I want to respect people’s identities, but the whole other-kin thing poses so many questions and logical/judicial problems for me, I can’t get on board with it.

Saying you’re other-kin and that is your preferred state of being is so foreign to me, and not only that, but it seems like you want to shirk the responsibilities of being human while still enjoying the many privileges that come with it, which is a major problem for everyone.

If we say that other-kin have the same rights and level of civic duty as the creatures they identify as, there’s a big problem with that in terms of human rights. I don’t think anyone who identifies as dog-kin wants to be treated like the average dog 24/7.

But if you truly identify as dog-kin and are given the same rights as humans, that poses a big problem for animal rights, because why does this dog get access to healthcare and get to go to school and learn math and grammar and all that and these dogs don’t? Why does this dog get to make a monetary income and these dogs don’t?

And let’s say some cat-kin killed a guy or robbed a bank. How are they supposed to be prosecuted? We more often than not euthanise pets who even just bite someone, and if someone actual identifies as a non-human animal and we respect that, we should treat them the same way as we would the animal in that situation. I don’t see that cat-kin being 100% okay with that, I don’t picture someone, anyone, NOT fighting for a proper trial instead of euthanasia.

Someone could very easily be executed for a minor crime because they identify as a creature that we do not have the laws in place to protect in that way.

But if we put the laws in place that would protect other-kin, those laws would have to extend to the animals themselves, and we could see a miscarriage of justice when accounting for the fact that other-kin can try to defend themselves verbally in court and animal-born animals cannot.

But if we take the middle road and say you’re both animal and human, and can enjoy the privileges of both those identities, who’s to stop a man from going on a cannibalistic killing spree and saying it was his velociraptor-kin instincts and him getting away with it because we can’t prosecute velociraptors?

Ugh, I’m so frustrated and confused. I really want to respect and understand this aspect of furries, but I just don’t get it. You’re a human being. And if you want to dress up like a dragon because it makes you horny, go for it, but when you start to say you aren’t human and want to be treated as the creature you truly are, think about what that means. Because to me, it doesn’t mean something good for the animals you claim as kin or the people around you.

I don't know if you do requests for AUs, but if you do, can we get an angsty one with Tran! Jeremy hearing the Squip instructing him to act according to the stereotypes of his biological sex? (In other words, the squip telling him to act feminine because he was assigned the female gender at birth.) And Michael swooping in and calming him down?

I do! And yes, moar angst!

‘First get a dress.’

“What?”

‘You want to be popular so we’re going to start by making you less…boyish.’

“But I am a boy.”

'No you’re confused.’

“No I’m a boy.”

'This is what I’m here to fix. And to make you more appealing you need start acting like a proper girl. Starting with a dress.’

“But I-OW! What the hell?”

'That was an electrical shock Jeremy. I will send one through your body when you do something wrong. Now listen to me and head over to that Dillards so that we can buy you a proper dress.’ Jeremy didn’t know what the SQUIP was planning but if it would help him…that and he didn’t want to be shocked again. That really hurt.

~~

'That’s a boy’s shirt.’

“So?” Another shock caused Jeremy to spaz out from pain. “Ow!”

'I see I’m asking too much of you. Let’s start off simple; quit walking like a masturbator and more like a lady.’

“But I am a masturbator.”

'We’ll fix that.’ Jeremy tried swaggering over to the dressing room but the SQUIP stopped him mid-stride. 'Even this is difficult to you? Look, there’s Chloe and Brooke from school.’ Jeremy froze recognising the two girls. 'Introduce yourself as Jackie Heere.’

“I’m not Jackie! I’m-”

“Jerry?”

“Shit…”

~~

Michael looked down at his phone as it beeped. It was a text from Jeremy asking him to meet him outside the women’s restroom.

“Weird.” Walking over there he got another text.

'First stall, hurry’ This prompted Michael to speed walk faster. Sticking his head in and not seeing anyone else Michael went in where he heard muffled crying.

“Jeremy?”

“M…Michael?”

“Yeah it’s me, what happened? Are you okay? Why are you crying?”

“T…the SQUIP…it worked…”

“What? That’s great! We need to celebrate!”

“No it’s not!”

“What happened? Are you hurt?”

“I…it thinks I’m a girl…and it hurts me when I try to tell it my name’s Jeremy.” Michael paused at that.

'Oh Fuck No.’

you can call her either or they are both her name, Janis is her middle name she just likes to use it as her first. you don’t sound stupid!

I'm so confused about my sexuality right now. I hate how I feel like I need to label myself & I don't want to feel like I should, but I think it would help me figure myself out. It's just extremely stressful :(

I hope you figure everything out! Personally I avoid labelling myself, with everything basically, that’s what works for me. But many people find comfort in labels, it’s completely normal. Everything from gender to sexuality to hogwarts house to sports team, identity and knowing who we are is very important to most people. Remember that just because you identify with something now doesn’t mean you can’t identify differently later! It’s not set in stone. Easier said than done but try not to stress about it, it’s not worth it. You’ll find out eventually. Maybe try to figure out why it’s so important to you? Is it to form your identity or because you’re looking for a community? No matter what, I wish you luck!

Just stop
  • Stop telling people they are jealous because they don't like a celebrity

I'm so sick about the "cultural appropiation" thing
  • Hello. I am Spanish. I've been studying Social and Cultural Anthropology for 4 years. And most of all, I love tumblr.
  • But in here I use to see a fashion that describes the act of dressing, acting or sharing a fest like "cultural appropiation". And it grinds my gears.
  • CULTURAL APPROPIATION DOES NOT EXIST in that way
  • The culture is not a thing one person or one society can own like his/her treasure. You can like or not the fact that we live in a globalized world, so we must accept there has to be a mix between different life forms.
  • For example, here, in Spain, you all must know we have got bullfights (puke) and sevillanas. Well, in Japan there are a lot of people playing sevillanas and flamenco. I don't consider them as "cultural appropiatiors" because I don't fucking own a thing about sevillanas. In this world, with te mass media, it's easy to see anything from other societies you aren't used to. I think it is not a bad thing to want to participate in some events you like around the world.
  • There is a big mistake I see when we talk about this "cultural appropiation" that is: we confuse enjoying a fest or a event with the act of colonialism. The oocidental countries have a debt to all societies for what they did, and for what some companies are still doing. There is a unfair relation of power that puts the occidental things on the top desirable things while the non-occidental things are exotized and MERCANTILIZED.
  • And thats the point I want to talk about:
  • CULTURAL APPROPIATION IS NOT TO ENJOY A FOREIGN EVENT. IT'S ABOUT MERCANTILIZING THAT EVENT, SO YOU CAN REPRODUCE THAT COLONIALISM OF EXPLOTATION BY GAINING MONEY FROM A THING OTHER PEOPLE COULD SELL BETTER AND MORE LEGITIMATELY.
  • Thank you for reading me. I'm sorry about my bad english. Like every spanish person, I had to "appropiate" that language to comunicate with you.

anonymous asked:

What do you think about therians and the names thing? It's going around that you can meditate and your theriotype will tell you it's name. But this seems unlikely to me considering names don't serve much purpose on the animal kingdom. I just wanted to see what you think.

The creation of a Therian name is discussed a lot within the community. It’s not possible that a theriotype could tell a person it’s name because a theriotype is not another entity that is separate from a person. Saying “I have a wolf theriotype.” has always confused people. It’s better to say “I am a wolf Therianthrope (Therian).” because we are our theriotypes. A theriotype is just the non-human animal species that Therianthropes identify as.

A Therian name is just a name that we choose to go by in the Therian/Otherkin communities that may describe who/what we are. Coming up with this name is easy for some and harder for others. Those who meditate are simply finding that name within themselves. It’s also true that animals would identify each other by smell, markings, maybe sound, but it wouldn’t be recognizable to us as humans.

If a person is getting a name from another spiritual entity or that entity is providing a name for itself, then it’s a spirit guide. Having a spirit guide doesn’t automatically make a person a Therianthrope.

Here are a couple essays about Therian names that can be found on archived sites. We apologize that we didn’t have time to find more essays about Therians names, as we’re sure that they are out there. If anyone else knows of other related essays, please let us know. Thank you.

“On every message board in the “were community” it is customary to take a pseudonym that somehow describes you and use it when you post, reply, and chat. It’s just one of those things that make everything better, for a couple of reasons.“ Swiftpaws, 1997-2003, “Choosing a Werename” (Internet Archive) http://web.archive.org/web/20041226015144/http://www.otherwonders.com/swiftpaws/therian/old/werenames.html

“A ‘WereName’ is a ‘designation’ you go by to represent yourself in the WereCommunity. It should reflect you as a person, as a were, as an independant spirit.“ Jakkal, 2004, “WereNames”. (Shifters.org archive) http://web.archive.org/web/20060505025716/http://www.therianthropy.org:80/SO/guide2.htm
