“How long are you planning to keep me here?”

“As long as it takes for you to realize that this is where you belong. Then I won’t be keeping you here. I’ll be allowing you to stay.”

You sigh, looking down at your palms as fire grows from them. It always calms you to see the flames. It gives you a sense of comfort that you can control something that no one else seems to be able to.

“I still don’t know what you want from me,” you say, not looking up to meet the eyes of your captor.

“You intrige me.”

“My power intrigues you. This has nothing to do with me.”

He stops, not saying anything. He knows that you’re right.

“That’s not exactly true. Your power is a part of you. I am intrigued by how you control it. How you let it calm you.”

You look up when he says that, surprised that he noticed something no one else has.

“I’m very observant,” he says, as if he read your mind, “can you make it into an object? Manipulate it to look like something?”

You nod, not knowing why you’re showing him what you can do with your powers. You shouldn’t be listening to anything Peter says, but you don’t stop your self when you hold your hand up, letting him watch as the fire builds, taking the shape of a wolf.

It becomes the size of your fist and you flick your hand towards Peter, making the “wolf” run around him, leaving a trail of embers in its path.

“Thats incredible,” Peter says, looking at you. He smiles, but you don’t return it, realizing that you have taken down the walls that you have spent years building up.

Peter isn’t someone you can trust. You can’t fall into his trap and let yourself accept that you are going to be here for the rest of your life. You can’t.

“If I let you out, will you try to run away?”

You stare at him in disbelief.

“Will you try and stop me?”

He just smirks at you before opening the cage, making your eyes widen. You slowly step out, looking around for any signs of the lost boys waiting to stop you from running. You don’t see anyone.

“What are you doing?” you ask Peter suspiciously.

“Let’s call it an experiment. Am I keeping you here…” he takes a step towards you, your faces only inches apart, “…or allowing you to stay?”

You stare at him for a moment before taking a step back, shaking your head.

If you let yourself fall for Peter, you won’t be able to will yourself to leave the island.

He takes another step forward, reaching up to place his hand on your cheek.

“Will you stay here with me?”

You don’t pull back, but you don’t respond. He stands there, waiting patiently for a response.

But you refuse to respond. You know that if you do, he will just put you back in the cage no matter what your answer is.

But suddenly, he’s leaning forward, pulling your face closer to his. Your eyes widen, but you don’t stop him. Your nose touches his and his hand moves from your cheek to the back of your neck.

You seem to wake up from a trance then, realizing what you are about to do.

You pull back abruptly, stumbling a bit to get away from him. You shake your head, refusing to acknowledge the fact that you almost kissed Peter Pan.

You look down and see that you have singed the leaves with every step you have taken, something that happens when ever you feel strong emotions. That’s one of the things that scares you about your powers. The fact that you can’t always control them.

Peter notices this and takes a step forward, reaching out for you.

“No, I can’t,” you say, taking another step back. You flinch when you hear the leaves under your feet burning. Peter just stares at you, looking just as surprised as you are.

“I don’t…” he trails off, lost in his thoughts of what to say to you, but you don’t stay to hear what he wants to tell you.

You turn and run as fast as your feet can carry you, not caring about the trail of fire you leave in your wake.

Peter will fix any damage you do.

Isn't that how Glenn dies in the comics tho? I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm fucking depressed that he's gone—but that's the show isn't it? We can't expect everything to go perfectly it's an apocalypse with psychopaths like Negan running around.

Not trying to be rude but this argument isn’t really valid. The reason for that being that the deaths in the comic books have been switched up in the show. For example, comic book Abraham’s death was given to tv show Denise. The show doesn’t follow the comics to a T. The characters that were in the comics and on the show haven’t always died how they did in the comics.

Basically, they could have easily given Glenn’s comic book death to another character. Instead, they decided to kill off a character of color, the only asian character on the show, when it was a white character’s fault. Daryl should have been the one to die since he was the one who was out of line. That’s why I’m pissed off, personally.

Maybe some cute stuff

As it is reflected in the harsh contact with how to Ellen, a significant person with a sharp tongue. But tenderness, such as “not die devised’m Do not forget” is glimpses into end-to-end of invective (such as the first 24 episodes). It attracts Members our mind

So I got Google Translate and I have a book about Levi’s character but it’s all in Japanese so I translated that motherfucker

I know it sucks but I think it’s basically saying that even though he doesn’t like to show it openly, Levi is tender to Eren in small ways.

If anyone can speak Japanese, it would be awesome if you could translate (I can post a photo of the page) because although I’m trash, I can’t speak Japanese.

Thanks y'all and keep shipping

The existence of bisexual people doesn’t require a damn content warning

So this afternoon a teen librarian friend alerted me this tweet from the exceptional Angie Manfredi of Fat Girl Reading:

The print is super duper tiny, so let me blow it up.  This is a review of the book Run by Kody Kepplinger from the prominent library review magazine VOYA* aka Voices of Youth Advocates :

Agnes is legally blind, and leads such a sheltered life that she cannot even take the bus home from school or attend parties. Bo Dickinson has a drug addicted mother, an absent father, and is rumored to be the town slut. Although opposites, they become good friends through their kindness and acceptance of each other. Bo’s cousin Colt is almost a brother to her; they have grown up together and are part of the family “you steer clear of because nothing good can come of getting mixed up with that bunch.” Agnes has a different problem; her parents hover over her and limit her activities so it is impossible for her to be a normal teenager, until she begins sneaking out to go places with Bo. When Bo hatches a plan to leave town to find her father, Agnes decides to go along, thinking she and Bo will live together. They steal a car from Agnes’s family and begin their road trip, along the way visiting Colt, with whom Agnes has a sexual encounter. When Agnes discovers that Bo intends to live with her father, they separate and she gets in touch with her parents, leaving Bo to a disappointing meeting with her father, and an eventual return to the foster care system. The story contains many references to Bo being bisexual and an abundance of bad language, so it is recommended for mature junior and senior high readers.–Rachel Axelrod. 304p. VOICE OF YOUTH ADVOCATES, c2016.

I helpfully put in bold the part that gave me rage hives :D

This reviewer (Rachel Axelrod) and VOYA are saying the very existence of bisexual people is on par with swearing.  That the very existence of bisexuality can only be shown to junior and senior high schoolers. 

And this is where I need to disagree with Angie a little here because that isn’t a microagression.  That is full-on biphobia folks.  

And its a particular kind of biphobia that tags bisexual girls and women in a particularly pernicious way.  Mature is a coded word here.  Its hypersexualization – where being bisexual and being out and using the word ‘bisexual’ for bi women is considered on par with sex acts. And like I said on twitter this afternoon, you can draw a straight fucking line from this review to bisexual women being constantly sexually harassed and facing astronomically high rates of sexual violence and domestic abuse.  Bisexual women and girls are not seen as peoples, we are seen as machines that dispense sex.  I would expect a publication like VOYA to challenge that narrative, not reinforce it.  

Also, does VOYA think that bisexual teens under grade 11 just don’t exist?  Because TRUST ME they do.   And they deserve to read books that reflect their inner worlds just as much as straight teens.  I have NEVER seen a book review of any type claim that only juniors and seniors can know about the existence of straight people.   How many people at VOYA put their eyes on this review and NO ONE noticed that?

I spend a fair amount of my time on this blog complaining, critiquing, and analyzing books that refuse to use the word bisexual to describe their characters.  And while I haven’t read Run (though I put it on hold at my library today), all accounts are that the bisexual character Bo actually uses the word bisexual several times.  But instead of celebrating that as an important YA development, VOYA seems to think it needs a goddamn content warning.

Oh but just wait.  

It gets better.  

It gets so much better.  

You might be thinking that perhaps this book just had a lot of steamy bisexual sex scenes and this is just a case of poor wording.


In this reviewers mind, the actual HAVING of heterosexual sex doesn’t make this book in appropriate for younger readers, but the very EXISTENCE of a bisexual character would.  You don’t need to warn against actual sex but you choose to slap a ‘here be monsters’ on the map if there are bisexuals?

There is nothing to that but base and blatant biphobia.  

Librarians and booksellers use magazines like VOYA because they can’t read every book.  Now we have VOYA telling entire swaths of professionals that this book (and by extension bisexual people) are somehow inherently inappropriate.  VOYA has a reputation among librarians as being progressive, less enmeshed with book publishers, and more focused on intellectual freedom than other review sources (PW, Kirkus, LJ, SLJ).  Their name is actually Voices of Youth Advocates.  We trust their reviews to advocate for youth.  

Well I’m sorry VOYA but you need to explain to me how promoting this kind of biphobia makes you a ‘youth advocate’.  Or how it helps you uphold the mission statement of your publication – which reads: “Young adults have rights to free and equal access to information in print, nonprint, and electronic resources, without infringement of their intellectual freedom due to age or other restrictions.”   How exactly does advocating an age restriction on a book solely because of the sexual orientation of a protagonist advance that right to free and equal access to information?

This also frustrates me to no end because we’ve all heard that mantra about how ‘diverse books don’t sell’.  WELL NO SHIT THEY DON’T SELL WHEN YOU REVIEW THEM LIKE THIS!  This is a textbook lesson in how to use base-level bigotry to bomb book sales.  I swear to god, the next person who tells me that books with bisexual characters who actually use the word bisexual ‘just don’t sell’ is gonna get nothing but a giant squid of anger.    

Right now, I’m calling on VOYA magazine and it’s Editor RoseMary Honnold to apologize to author Kody Keplinger and to the entire bisexual community.  This review is offensive and it needs to be retracted.  I’d also say that Rachel Axelrod needs some LGBTQ cultural competency training (with a particular emphasis on the B in there).  

This is #BiWeek, the week where bisexual community celebrates our history, culture, and art.  It would be a great time for VOYA to remove their foot from their mouth and apologize for this biphobic trainwreck.

*I know you’re really not supposed to post content such as entire reviews up on the internet from trade publications but if VOYA doesn’t like it, then fuck it, they can C&D us.
