but i like it somewhat

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

You’re allowed to be angry about bad representation or lack of representation. 

People who say “It’s a waste of energy” or “There are more important things to be angry about” or “It’s like you want to feel offended” are most likely people who are already well represented in media. It often sounds somewhat like “I’ve never lacked food in my life, so why do poor people not simply go and buy food? It’s like they want to be hungry!”. 

But change occurs when people stand up. And sending a complaint to a tv channel who is handling lgbt+ representation badly (and similar actions) are not a waste of energy, they’re exactly that: It’s us standing up for our rights. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom

NOT TO BE EXTRA OR ANYTHING BUT I JUST WANTED TO SHARE MY HAPPINESS BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE MY LIFE IS SOMEWHAT POINTING ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND I AM CONTENT AND OPTIMISTIC AND I HOPE EVERYONE FEELS LIKE THIS EVENTUALLY TOO I LOVE EVERYONE ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

A little rant

I have started studying film. I’m working on writing some screenplay samples and I want to start directing skits and short films for youtube when I can afford a camera. My brother runs a youtube channel reviewing films, and he has had a major impact on me when it comes to cinema and television.

So knowing all this, I assumed my predictions for every plot device and outcome in Sherlock season 4 was a mix of cynicism and deduction which I had hoped I had developed from being such a big fan of BBC Sherlock since it’s inception.

I was wrong.

Over the course of two days I purchased and completed the entirety of Sherlock season 4 and I am bitterly disappointed with how they chose to end it. Now please know that whilst I am disappointed, I liked it. I found it enjoyable and somewhat clever, and we saw development for characters that I did not think we would get to see. 

Now I will proceed to pick apart every inch of Sherlock season 4 in order, whilst arguing against some of the frankly unnecessary criticisms I’ve seen in the later episodes. So let’s start from the beginning, shall we?

Episode 1.

The car ride. Why was Sherlock there for the pregnancy? Why in the same car? Why would the Watsons take the extra time to drive to 221B and pick up Sherlock when we know his preferred method of transportation is a cab? This seems highly impractical.

Sherlock is a dick. No, not in the way we know him to be, all smart and analytical and full of himself. No, this Sherlock can’t manage to stay off his twitter even when his goddaughter is being baptized. And if you’re going to use atheism as an excuse please don’t bother because we are all aware that Sherlock is more than capable of showing human decency.

The table. Even with Sherlock being… Well, Sherlock, there’s no reason why he should get so hung up on an empty space on a table. And the detail about the motion sensor? It’s impossible for Sherlock to have found such a tiny detail important enough to store in his hard drive which we know has limited space. He would have dismissed this immediately.

Family. Mary says at least once that AGRA was her family, they were like family, family family family. SO WHY DID AJAY NEVER ASK HER ANYTHING? Like surely if they were so close Ajay wouldn’t blindly just want to kill her. He may believe that Mary betrayed them but there is no way he wouldn’t want to know why.

(these are gonna get shorter because they don’t need as much explanation)

DID NO ONE BACKGROUND CHECK LADY GODDAMN SMALLWOOD’S RECEPTIONIST?!

The aquarium had no relevance except for giving us an excuse for special effects Sherlock was seeing like some bullshit spidey-sense and an expositional shark clip

John’s extremely delayed reaction when his wife was shot

JOHN WOULD NEVER BLAME SHERLOCK LIKE THAT

Episodes 2 and 3 will be up soon

How did you learn/ study Japanese?

Mostly I pick up things as I go and try my best to keep my learning somewhat consistent, like I’m doing with French. I recommend taking classes, diligently studying on your own, reading manga raw (I especially recommend this) and ask people who know Japanese around you for help when you can. It’s a process. I’m a little busy currently so I can’t give you anymore resources or references, but hopefully when I’m free and you’re still around I could help you some with the basics.

I just want to say thank you so much for being like everyone's therapist right now. I've been trying to keep it together all day today and it's been really hard. I keep coming back on tumblr to find comfort (which I do) but I also just feel more heartbroken each time. I honestly don't know what to do right now and everything hurts. I've always been one to be very deeply affected by movies and tv shows, but this is taking it to a whole new level. I feel lost and betrayed and just utter sadness.

i’m so sorry you’re feeling this way and i’m always here to support you and everyone who needs it. i love you all and i want you all to get to a good place with this and with yourselves.

that said, i have been sitting over here, a little bit lonely and a little bit frustrated, because i do feel like i have a (somewhat) optimistic reading of s4 that might be helpful for some to hear. but i also never want to invalidate anyone’s feelings of hurt or betrayal or disappointment; you’re entitled to feel how you feel. but if anyone might benefit from hearing my optimistic perspective on things, my askbox is open, etc.

i love you all, stay safe, and i’m here for you no matter what

FIC: The Immunis Praetorio

Fandom: Runescape

Characters: Trindine, Sliske, Azzanadra

Summary: The God Wars has just begun and Trindine questions whether Sliske is the best choice to lead the Praetorio in these uncertain times.

A/N: Part of my giveaway for @gemmi3! I hope you like it (somewhat)! Trindine is neither a character who has much cannon stuff, nor have I given her much thought which is why this fic was really challenging for me. I can’t say I’m super pleased with it, but I still hope you like it. Also, mild spoilers for Endgame. Also Nabor. Also, how to Latin?


The Divine Palace was shrouded in a darkness that seemed to herald not just the oncoming war but also the end of an era. Trindine was careful to not let her moroseness show on her face, keeping her expression and thoughts well concealed. There was not a speck of dust or evidence of anything broken. Indeed, Azzanadra made sure that everything looked as it always had looked. Nevertheless, there was a sense of disrepair in the entire Palace.

“These assertions are most grave, Immunis Praetorio.” Azzanadra spoke at last. His voice had changed. It had become deeper; no doubt a conscious effort, Trindine noted. The Praetorio and some of the Legati were aware of Azzanadra’s strategy to act as per ‘holy sanction’. Indeed, they were tasked with doing everything to further and maintain that perception.

“Which is exactly why I’m presenting them, you see.” Trindine remarked. After a pause she added, “Pontifex Maximus.”

“Do you have any proof to substantiate your accusations?”

“Claims.”

Azzanadra looked up.

“They’re claims. ‘Accusations’ doesn’t even begin to cover what I’m saying.” Trindine bit her lip. “And if you would bother to read my personal reports and transcripts, you will find enough proof.”

TURICUR!!

I’m seriously in love with this game!

Please help Mark see this...

Hi, Mark. I’m the developer of “Black Rose” “Captured”, and “Otherworld Hospital”, and I’ve been a long-time subscriber and fan of you, ever since your early days of ’Let’s Playing’. You help me with my depression, and you help me feel like I have friends, even though I’ve never actually met you or the gang (I’d be too nervous to, anyway). You help me feel like I’m somewhat normal. Even though I just sit here and cry sometimes, you always make me laugh.

Seeing you play my games helps motivate me to keep developing them and get better at it, as becoming a successful, appreciated game developer has been my entire life dream since I was very young. It’s been a long journey or depression, anxiety, devastation, humiliation, isolation, lack of motivation, and sadness, but you help me press on.

I can only hope that maybe, possibly, if I get lucky, you just might see this. I’m getting emotional now even just typing this out, it’s just that you’ve helped me so much in ways that many people can’t see or understand.

So, thank you. Even though it’s hard, I will keep trying the best I can.

“Dean Winchester.”

“Castiel Novak,” Castiel introduces himself in return, firmly shaking the hand he has been offered, “As my boss has probably already informed you, I will be your new bodyguard.”

“Will you?” Dean questions as he raises an eyebrow, unimpressed in a way that speaks of many years of experience with new bodyguards. Not that Castiel looks particularly unpromising – there have been many who have made a worse first impression, looking as though they were only in it for the money or the prestige of being able to call Dean Winchester their employee –, but also not particularly promising. Truthfully, he almost seems to have walked right out of a fashion photo shoot or some old-timey mafia movie, what with the snugly fitting suit and the tousled hair, but not out of a well-renowned personal protector agency.

Still, he will have to do for now. Dean is about to go on a campaign that will lead him through many events and meetings that have been set up to promote familiarity and intimacy with his possible voters, meaning that he will have to get up close and personal with them. Having more than one bodyguard – or one who looks more like one and less like Novak – with him would interfere with the whole ‘I’m one of you, vote for me’ vibe he’s going for, and it’s not like there’s any time left to choose another guard for himself. Not with his campaign starting tomorrow.

Castiel does nothing more than to quirk one corner of his mouth at Dean’s pointed question and tilt his head to the side just so. “Unless you have any objections.” There’s not even a challenge in his words or eyes, just calm reassurance and a frankly impressive ‘I don’t give a fuck either way’ attitude.

It drives a small shiver down Dean’s spine, one that’s not entirely unpleasant, and has him sigh in resignation.

“No,” he waves him off, although he already feels himself regretting his decision,“none.”
