I think I will never understand the magic times to post/reblog in this fandom.

Tagging was hard enough to figure out with the fandom itself having several names and short hands, the main pairing having four primary version names, inconsistent spellings of the main character’s name (alter ego).

But there is often such a glut of content (and that’s awesome, make no mistake), but it means I get maybe a few minutes of visibility to hope someone might re-blog what I post.

If one or two key people with a larger follower base do re-blog, I end up with 100+ of notes.  If not, I’m lucky to hit twenty or so.

It makes me question everything about my writing:  my content, my writing style, my number and quality of jokes and antics.  I have to keep reminding myself that it might not be me at all.

But it doesn’t keep me from wondering…and worrying.

All of us as women have a friend, or a relative, or have gone through [some kind of abuse] ourselves. There are all of these playful sort of comments on Big Little Lies about women’s manipulation or women’s dirty secrets, but in fact the biggest little lie is how we carry shame about what men have done. We have to learn to use our voice to protect ourself and each other, because there is no shame in what another person has done to us, and it’s time to defend ourselves and demand to be treated with respect. That’s such a profound thought—I just felt privileged to be a part of that story.

Okay really though I thought the ATLA fandom was bad about fighting over ships but I JUST started Voltron and joined the fandom and already the hatred and division between the fandom based on ships is blowing me away. ESPECIALLY between anti shaladin/shaladin and klance/every other Keith ship. Some of the posts I’ve seen are absolutely brutal and scathing. And on both sides. I just wonder, man…

Honestly why speculate creepy Lotor when you could imagine Lotor as coming across like Wesley from The Princess Bride. Charismatic, kind of cynical, and dealing with most of his problems by sheer force of concentrated bullshitting.

“They were both poisoned, I spent the last several years developing an immunity to [poison in question].”

“I’m not left-handed either.”

“Why didn’t you list that among our assets in the first place.”

“Why are you wearing the mask? Is it because you were burned?” “No it’s because I think they’re terribly comfortable. Everyone will be wearing them in the future.”

“Life is pain, princess, and anyone who tells you otherwise is selling you something.”

“[insert alien monster]? I don’t think they exist.” immediately gets attacked by one.

Malec and Clace in the books, literally
  • Relationship between Clary and jace: *passionate kisses, hugs, confessing love at least 689 times, constantly kissing each others God damn faces, holding hands, cuddling, ready to sacrifice themselves for each other *
  • Magnus and alec: wow Magnus, how did u learn so many languages im impressed

“Carousel of Progress” John Hench, 1967

When Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress made its grand debut at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, it quickly became one of the fair’s most-visited pavilions and delighted guests with its musical story of progress and optimism. The theater system, where guests would stay seated and rotate around different scenes, and the flashy new Audio Animatronics wowed visitors young and old. The overwhelming success inspired Walt and the Imagineers to include the attraction in their plans for 1967’s New Tomorrowland at Disneyland, shown here in a piece by John Hench. While the attraction has since moved to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, its legacy has continued on, and this great big beautiful tomorrow is the longest running stage show in the history of American theater.
