but not against them

For my younger followers, and those who have not had the chance to be as socially educated and may be on the fence about communism, an ideology that never should have left Karl Marx’s basement (where he wrote it while ignoring his starving children)

The perfect illustration of capitalism vs communism is Korea. 

In South Korea, you have this thing called K-pop

It’s cute bubbly pop music made by cute highschool girls and young women. 

Now in North Korea, you have these things called “Death Camps.”

It’s where girls just like this, toddlers​, elderly and inform, and political dissidents (real or percieves) are worked to death, starved, women subject to rape (usually followed by then watching product of said rape murdered in front of her.), entire families imprisoned in these circumstances for generations, all of them subject to medical experimentation and just any crime against humanity imaginable (the history of communism is parrallel to that of all major large scale human rights abuses for the past hundred years.

  • England: Australia, please!!

the other day i was hanging out w/ my uncle and i mentioned i had pet rats and his immediate response was “they’re just food, i used to get them for my snake.” so im like??? “they actually have a lot of personality, theyre super sweet and are basically like little weird puppies, i love mine 2 bits” to which he responded “nah theyre all just food” and then proceeded 2 graphically describe how he used to kill rats to give to his snake, which included drowning them, suffocating them, and bashing them against the concrete. this is a reoccurring theme ive noticed that happens when i talk abt my rats. people are immediately like “ew thats so gross id just kill them” AND IT PISSES ME OFF SO MUCH BC!!! YR TALKING ABOUT MY FUCKING PETS!!! MY LITTLE BABIES THAT I LOVE WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!!  u wouldnt talk abt killing someones fucking dog or cat!! so dont fucking pull that shit with anyones animals no matter what they are!!!! its no different!!!!! 

Suki says that that the Kyoshi Warrior’s technqiue involves using their opponent’s force against them, a martial arts philosophy consistent with waterbending.

This makes a lot of sense, given how they already seem to have some Water Tribe influences, and considering their location between the Southern Water Tribe and the Earth Kingdom mainland.

Anti probably ordered a jumper in XL just so he could be swamped in it, he's so happy and is like (✿。・ω・。) as he wears it with pride because he is a loving, supportive boyfriend. :') (Dark being a lil grouchy until he sees it hanging off Anti's shoulders omg)

yes!!!!! omg anti just sitting on the couch with his legs curled up against his chest and the sweatshirt pulled down over them so he looks like a ball

or anti waking up in the morning with his hair all wild and rubbing his eyes with the too big sleeves. 💚

dark probably fixes anti’s sweatshirt so it doesn’t hang off his shoulder like that because “have some decency, anti”, but his throat locks up at the quick glimpse of soft skin before it disappears underneath warm fabric whoops 

I don’t think “neurotypical” is a sturdy political category,  since people who have experienced NO developmental atypicality or mental illness or trauma at all ever (none of the above) would be pretty rare probably? plus it’s not something u can categorize other people as in political contexts / debates without knowing significant amounts of personal info about them. 

the term has some use, like being able to point out that some standard(s) of “neurotypical” exists in societies, which institutions put power and violence behind, and how that hurts mentally ill and disabled people who don’t fit it. this analysis is ofc most affective when directly factoring in race, gender, class, capitalism etc especially when discussing how power is wielded around these standards of mental typicality vs atypicality and the specifics of how violence is leveraged against people who don’t meet them. but the language doesn’t work as a universal dichotomy (”I can sort everyone clearly into neurotypical vs not” often fails for above stated reasons), nor is it something we should implore ppl to publicize as an identity (”u must disclose if ur “neurotypical” or not to gain credibility in activist settings, thus disclosing intensely personal info to strangers” is also often hurtful). 

ALL THAT BEING SAID people who haven’t experienced significant mental illness, trauma, or developmental disability, and/or people who maybe have on some level but have never been categorized or visibly perceived that way, are annoying and tiring and make me feel like a nonperson.

I keep thinking about how Keith inherited the blade from his mother but the BoM members don’t actually seem to recognize that blade from someone they know. It might be simply because they don’t remember, but considering the Red lion was on Zarkon’s side, I wonder if Keith’s mother was in fact fighting for Zarkon, and acquired the blade by killing and/or stealing from a BoM she either fought against or was already dead by the time she found them.

I feel like this is what happened because 1) during Keith’s backstory sequence, his father seem to remember the galra destroying things, not helping, which indicates Zarkon, not BoM and 2) the BoM immediately assumed Keith had stolen the blade, not acquired it somehow through “legal” means. It makes me think they already knew a blade had been stolen long ago and they never managed to found it again until Keith returned with it, so they assumed Keith had been the thief all along.

“Ah, ah, ah.” Kol smirked as Elena stopped, she held the White Oak Stake over her head ready to stab him. “I wouldn’t do that.” Kol warned.
“Why not!?” Elena asked.
“He just trying buy time! Elena kill him!” Jeremy glared.
“(Y/N) Darling could you give me a hand?” Kol asked and you seeming to come out of the shadows knocked your brother across the room and then twisted your sister’s arm until she dropped the stake into your hand before walking over and giving it to Kol.
“Well done Darling.” He mumbled placing a kiss on your head. “Shall we go home?” You nodded and your siblings frowned.
“(Y/N)?” Elena asked you looked over at her but when Kol called for you, you hurried towards him taking his free hand as you both left the house.

You were at the Grill Kol invited you out and you accepted, everything seemed okay until your sister walked into the Grill with Damon “stay with me no matter what okay?” Kol asked and you nodded. “Words.” He reminded you as he watched them walk over.
“Yes, Kol.” You said and he smiled.
“I love to hear your voice.” He mumbled kissing the top of your head.
“Why are you keeping her with you!?” Damon asked sitting opposite them in the booth as you leant into his side.
“I’m not keeping her anywhere,” Kol smirked. “She chooses to be here.”
“(Y/N) come home.” Damon tried as Elena stood silently behind him. You shook your head trying to get closer still.
“See.” Kol smiled gently rubbing up and down your arm to comfort you and keep you calm, he knew that you got nervous in public.
“Give her back Kol!” Elena demanded.
“Even if I wanted to she’d just come back to me.” Kol grinned. Damon’s eyes widened as he seemed to realise what was happening with you as you continued to nuzzle him burying your face on his side.
“She sired to you,” Damon said quietly.
“Correct, you all should have kept an eye on her.” Kol smiled throwing some money on the table and glancing outside, he gently took your hand and lead you both out of the restaurant.

When you were Human you were curious and that almost got you killed on a normal day, but it so happened that on that day a vampire was feeling particularly grouchy, so he attacked you, you got hurt pretty badly, Kol helped you and had to turn you to keep you alive. At first, he thought it was just to annoy your siblings and friends by extension but, the more time he spent with you he realised small things, your indicators. He had to admit it was fun to annoy Jeremy and Elena but he started to feel more than a want to annoy your siblings. You loved him before and he knew that now, you liked to ignore that, though. “Why do you do that?” You asked.
“What?” Kol asked playing with your hair as you laid on the grass of a park.
“Make me do things that make them angry.” You answered in a small voice.
“I’m sorry. I guess I’m just miniature.” He mumbled, he looked over at Elena and Damon who were watching you. “Real immature.”

Tuesday head canon - Gillian is now back in LA - to meet with FOX execs regarding season 11 promos but really it's an excuse to spend beachtime with her Boo. When David took the photo yesterday she was right behind him, arms wrapped around his waist, head resting against his back. No one noticed them - the beach was deserted and they revelled in the solitude fir a while.

This is exactly what happened. For sure.

But like imagine if he calls you "Little One" during a dom/sub teasing. I'll leave that there and slowly back away.

“D'yeh want my cock, little one?” He’d ask while using his hand to brush his cock up and down your slit, pressing the head against your entrance before pulling away from you again and rubbing against your wetness once more, bumping your clit and making you moan out loudly. “Is that what you’re whining about? Is that why yeh look so desperate, hm?”

You’ve got your arms above your head, tied with one of his scarfs that were laying around in the closet and your legs are spread open, Harry kneeling between them - the way he glides his length against you, the leaking pink head of his cock bumping your clit every time he glides upwards, is making your eyes water and your thighs shake. He’s been teasing you for a good minute now and you swear if he keeps going, you might lose your mind.

Nodding in answer to his question, your hips buck up, in search for the friction you so desperately need but he’s unrelenting - the teasing continues and your need of being filled up to the brim by his cock only builds to desperation.

“Answer me, little one. D'yeh want my cock?” His eyebrow is arched and you know that he won’t touch you like you want him to unless you say what he wants, so, with a breathless gasp you whisper “yes” and then he’s inside you, your walls pulsing around his thick and twitching cock. “That’s a good girl.” He says, a quick delirious laugh coming from his lips when you wrap your legs around his hips, taking him further and deeper inside of you. “Being so good fo’ me, little one… so so good.”

Did Labour and Tories (though no surprise way them) really vote against 16/17 year olds and EU citizens having the vote in the next indyref? :O


They voted against the Green amendment guaranteeing EU nationals and 16 & 17 year olds the vote.

Expected from the Tories…but so much for the progressive Labour and Lib Dems.

Hi, I'm new to the doll community and don't have my own BJD yet. But I wanted to ask, what's a recast??? And also what are some good websites to get BJDs from???

Hello, welcome to the community! I hope you can get a good doll soon.

Whew, apologies in advance but this post is gonna be long. In explaining what a recast is, it’s also important to explain the harm they do to this hobby and why so many people are against them, and why it’s as big a deal as it is. Especially to people who are new, because they unfortunately regularly get tricked into buying recasts.
A recast is an illegal copy of a doll. A recaster takes a mold of an existing doll and makes copies of it to sell for cheaper, and none of that money will go to the original the artist/company.
Imagine you sell posters of your art, and someone buys one, photocopies it and sells them as their own for cheaper. Now imagine a bunch of people buy the copies and say it’s ok and that you don’t deserve to be compensated, but they deserve to own your art as cheap as possible. That’s the ‘pro recast’ people.
What a lot of people don’t understand is that BJDs are different to many commercial products, ie as mass-produced fashion dolls. The reason they’re so expensive is because of the sheer volume of time and work that goes into making them. They’re artists who deserve to be compensated for their work, but recasters take all that away.
Their main excuse is that ‘legit’ dolls are too expensive and that pro-artist/anti-recast people are terrible gatekeeping bullies who don’t want 'poor’ people to have dolls. But there’s actually a good number of cheaper legit companies available to them, they just think they’re too good for those. It all boils down to 'I want this, but I don’t think I should have to pay that much for it’, and it’s not a good argument, especially because this is a luxury hobby. They have this weird mythology where people who can afford legit dolls are all big evil millionaires who wipe their butts with thousand dollar Volks sculpts, when the reality is that the vast majority of BJD fans aren’t rich, we just save up. For months and even years. Most companies also have layaway plans. We just have this radical idea that if we like something, we should pay the people who created it.
The other argument they like is that big companies like Volks, Fairyland and Soom are popular enough that any loss in sale won’t be noticed, but this is also a bad argument and doesn’t excuse stealing from them. The thing is, someone who makes recasts of dolls doesn’t exclusively make them of the 'big’ brands. They go after small companies too. People really overestimate the size of BJD companies –  but most others outside Volks are much smaller than expected and only have a dozen or so employees, and outside those big ones they get even smaller. Some are literally just families operating out of their living room, some are just single artists on their own, but recasters don’t care. So even if you pay for a copy of a Volks or Fairyland doll, you’re paying someone who is going to use your money to copy dolls from someone who WILL feel the hit. And these companies are literally begging people to stop supporting recasts because of the harm it does to their business - their livelihood - and it’s heartbreaking. Some companies have had to close up altogether, or result to extreme measures to lessen the chance of one of their dolls being recasted such as releasing incredibly limited quantities. And for artists in both the east and west who are wanting to start sculpting and selling their own dolls, recasts are enough of a threat that it discourages them from trying entirely.
This is why recasts aren’t allowed in nearly all the most prominent BJD communities - why would there be a place for something that is literally destroying something we love?? And of course the pro-recast crowd milk this for all it’s worth, painting themselves as poor downtrodden victims and outcasts who just wanted a cheap doll, going on about 'bullying’ and ‘gatekeeping’. (don’t get me wrong, bullying is shit. I don’t think a prorecasters deserves to be bullied or sent death threats, no one does、but most prorecasters interpret anything other than glowing acceptance of recasts as bullying, hell, their recent ‘evil anti recast bullies’ shitlist shows that all you gotta do is have ‘anti-recast’ or ‘pro-artist’ on your profile to be a bully.) They also insist that all pro-artists are elitists and that even if they bought a cheap legit they’d be judged for not having an expensive doll, which simply isn’t true. Pro-artists love cheap companies; most of us own and love dolls from cheap companies (many of us its all we can afford and that’s completely fine) and will recommend them with gusto, so the narrative about us being classist assholes who don’t want poor people stinking up the hobby is hilariously false and just a multitude of the tactics the prorecasts use to present themselves as victims and us as some elite. It’s gotten to the frankly absurd point where recast-supporters are comparing their ‘discrimination’ in this hobby to racism and homophobia, and have so multiple times. Mind-boggling.
That’s the basics of it, there’s a lot of other silly excuses in the pro-recast debate that have all been debunked, but I wont go into those as this post is long enough as it is. But at the end of the day, recasts aren’t the same thing as knockoff handbags, they are NOT comparable to ‘off-brands’ or a ‘cheaper option’, they are literally art theft, a copy of someone’s hard, and often quite personal work, and buying them lines the pockets of art thieves. If you respect artists at all and think the people who bring us these dolls deserve compensation, don’t support recasts.
If you’re looking to buy a BJD, I did make a rough guide on my doll blog a while back about basics that I hope is helpful to you! It has some info about good places to buy from.


 Please let me know if you have any other questions, you can ask here or on my doll blog.

Not Enough Time

Warning: Brief Smut

“How much time do we have?” Joe mumbles against Jack’s lips.

“Enough. Shut up.” The younger man growls, pressing Joe against the wall of his shower, the water spraying down over them.

His lips trail down Joe’s jaw and neck, kissing along the wet and warm skin as the older man tilts his head back, his fingers clawing at Jack’s naked back, his need only growing stronger.

“Jack…we can’t…we don’t have enough time…”
