  • Rhysand: I waited until you called for me to come rescue you.
  • Feyre: I want to leave.
  • Tamlin: I don't care, you're staying. You're mine. I'll lock you in this house.

Hey! In a lot of imagines revolving the rfa and mc arguing, mc cries/runs off but could you do an imagine where mc stands her ground and says that they need to shape up and apologise because she won't take their bs? Thanks, sorry if this is a bit weird I just really wanna see a badass mc. With rfa + Saeran please!

YASSSSS, this request gives me life! Let’s make badass MC happen more often, people!


MC makes RFA + Saeran apologize after a fight


Zen

  • You love him and how much he cares about you
  • But sometimes he treats you like a little kid. Don’t go alone to this place, don’t do this by yourself, you’ll get hurt! Shit like that.
  • You get it, he’s worried because that guy in the apartment might still be around, but… you’re a grown ass woman, can’t you really go for a jog in the park by yourself without him calling you like there’s a fire going on?
  • You came in and found him glaring at you, arms crossed and a judgmental face, like you were a teenager doing the walk of shame after sneaking out.
  • “I was worried.” “I can see that.” You said, moving to the kitchen to get some water in the fridge.
  • “Babe, we already discussed this, you can’t go out like this by yourself, it’s dangerous, and you’re so sweet and innocent, and…” “Says who?” “What?”
  • “Who told you I’m sweet and innocent? You really think I can’t stand up by myself if I need to? Oh, and we actually didn’t discuss anything, YOU decided that I couldn’t go out by myself. You took a decision for me! “
  • “I can’t believe you’re being that ungrateful right now, MC! I dedicate my whole life to you, I’ve been trying to work less to spend more time with you, I do my best to include you in my work, and that’s how you thank me?”
  • “Well, guess what, Hyun? I never asked you to do these things, I never forced you, you do because you want to, and I let you do as you please because I want you to be happy and comfortable with me, and I’m pretty sure I’m not asking much for wanting some reciprocity here. So don’t try to make me feel guilty for something I know I’m right, I’m not a kid, I’m not a teenager, and I’m not stupid!”
  • You were calm, but your words were harsh. Zen never saw you this assertive, he honestly didn’t know he was patronizing you like this. Well, maybe he knew a little, his instinct of protection sometimes got the best of him.
  • And you called him by his real name, so he knows you’re PISSED and he’s screwed.
  • “Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll take a shower. I could barely sweat since I couldn’t jog much, but… I just need a shower.” He watched as you moved without even looking at him, yep, he was screwed.
  • He wanted to fix this right now, but he would be a dead man if he even tried getting in that bathroom right now, he knew this.
  • So he waited, sitting in the bed, processing your words. You were so sure about being right, who was he to say you’re not?
  • His intentions were good, they really were, but… good intentions aren’t enough if he wants you to be happy with him, and you would never be happy if you feel trapped with him.
  • That’s exactly what he told you when you came out of the bathroom. You thanked him for understanding. He wanted at least a smile from you, but he could understand why you wouldn’t give him right now.
  • He had the whole night to try making you smile.

Yoosung

  • You rarely get mad at him. He doesn’t do anything wrong most of the time.
  • But it takes you to be a little friendlier to Zen and he turns into this grumpy jealousy little prick.
  • You try to be patient, he’s insecure, Zen is dreamy to most everybody, but… at this point, Zen and, most important, him, should know where you heart is. So he shouldn’t get this cold to you just because you went to watch one of Zen’s rehearsals.
  • You came in, he didn’t even say hello or greeted you at his usual cheerful manner, he looked at you head to toes and went back to his book. Oh boy…
  • “I saw the photos in the messenger, MC.” Judging by his tone, he saw the most compromising pictures ever, but he could only be talking about Zen’s selfie with you at rehearsal. “Yeah? How do I look in them?” you asked putting your coat and purse in the coffee table mindlessly.
  • “Don’t mock me! I… I don’t like when you don’t take me seriously! I’m serious right now! You going out with Zen while dating me is serious, MC!”
  • “There isn’t a single person in the world who takes you more serious than I do, Yoosung. Trust me on this. But don’t expect me to stop hanging out with my friends just because you can’t handle your jealous.”
  • “I… I’m not jealous! I’m worried for you! You keep acting this nice and Zen, no, not only Zen, any other guy can get the wrong idea about you! Or… do you want them to get the wrong idea?” he regretted these last words the minute they left his mouth, he was expecting tears and was already thinking what he would have to say to fix this…
  • “No, you’re not worried. You’re just jealous. Once again you’re taking on me all your insecurities. Honestly, Yoosung, I’m running out of ideas on how to convince you that I love you and there’s no other man who could make me feel like you do. And I get that you’re insecure, I told you a million times we can find you some help on this, but I won’t put up with you trying to make me feel bad for having friends and being nice with them.  Zen is your friend too, you should congratulate him on his new role instead of pissing me off over something I’m not wrong.”
  • Your words dropped like needles on his skin. It was harsh, but yet you looked so cold and stoic, like he was trying to be when you came in. He was terrified of even looking at you in the eye.
  • “We ran out of rice, I’ll buy some.” You said, getting ready to leave again. “I-I’ll go.” He jumped out of the couch and headed to the convenience store, it was the least he could do.
  • He went and came back all the way thinking of what to say to make things right.
  •  You were right, he was being an ass not only to you, but to his friend, this wasn’t the Yoosung he wanted to be, not when it comes to you.
  •  Yes, he wants to be always sweet and nice, always caring and respectful about you and your choices, your friends, your life. He wants you to be happy and he knows he’ll never be able to be part of this happiness if he keeps acting like this.
  • You nodded in agreement when he told you this. “So, uhm… will you cook this or what?” you asked glancing quickly at him, that was his cue.
  • “Yes, sure. Hey, uhm… do you want to invite Zen to come over?”


Jaehee

  • Okay, this is not about her as your girlfriend, is about her as you business partner.
  • She left C & R, but C & R didn’t leave her. She still has these habits of trying to take all responsibility for herself and ending up stressed and tired.
  • You feel left out, she decides a lot of things by herself when it comes to the café without asking you first, and gets very passive aggressive when you take over something without her noticing.
  • You understand, old habits die hard. But… what’s the point in all of this if she keeps getting stressed out and you don’t even get to share this with her?
  • So when you took over some paper work and she noticed, there were her grumpy sigh in annoyance and a long glare at you.
  • “MC, can you return this to me, please?” “No, I’m working on this. Take this time to relax a little.” You didn’t say to piss her off, you genuinely wanted her to relax and get some rest… but that’s not how she took it.
  • “Don’t be condescending on me, MC, I don’t like this! I’m already much stressed and I don’t need you clowning around with serious work like this. I would relax if I could, but I can’t, as you can see for yourself and prefer to ignore it.”
  • “I wish I could ignore it, but these dark circles under your eyes are impossible to ignore.” You weren’t being sarcastic or anything, you were really concerned, but… again, that’s not how she took it.”
  • “You think you’re really funny, don’t you? Seriously, MC, I… I can’t stand when you act this calm and carefree over anything! I hate being the one always worried, always tense, but you leave me no choice! It’s tiring enough taking care of everything, I can’t take care of you acting like a child too!” she finally looked at you, you blinked once, twice…
  • “You don’t have to, you’re the one acting like a child here, like one of those young brothers playing the victim, you know? Apparently you forgot what a partnership means, since you don’t let me handle anything but servicing customers. I’m as capable and competent as you, Jaehee, I can handle things as good as you, and since I can, you don’t have to try to embrace the world. I know you’re used to dealing everything by yourself, but I’m here to help you. So… let me.”
  • She missed the sweet bubbly girl, you were scary like this! You could yell your lungs out and it wouldn’t be that scary as you acting this cold.
  • “Oh, and I fixed this report for you, you missed a few sales there. You’re welcome.” You dropped the paper on her desk and stretched yourself like it was nothing.
  • That awkward silence was killing her, her thoughts on how she managed to get you this pissed were torturing her.
  • And you were right, she was acting like… ugh, that was awful, but she was acting like Jumin, bossing you around, getting passive aggressive if something is not done in her way, playing the martyr, yeah, she would be furious if this happened to her… again.
  • The point of the café was to finally do something she loves, doing it with the person she loves the most included on this. She didn’t want to be the Jumin to your Jaehee.
  • She told you that, and you giggled with the last part, she was relieved seeing your smile, but she knew she screwed up big time with you.
  • So you two called it a night at work and headed home. The make up sex was amazing, by the way.

Jumin

  • You can’t call all the times you just gave him a free pass on things he did wrong.
  • Okay, everything is very new to him when it comes to relationships, so sometimes he doesn’t even notice how insensitive he’s being.
  • And he has strong opinions about you. Even if you didn’t ask him, he’s giving you his thoughts on your clothes, your manners, everything.
  • So you two are about to leave to meet RFA on a little get together, and he’s looking at your dress, more like staring at it.
  • “Are you really going to wear this?” “Why? Would you prefer me going naked?” your eyes met his through the mirror.
  • “Don’t tease me right now, please. And go change, this dress is a tease by itself, and I don’t want Zen drooling over you.”
  • “I’m not teasing, I’m being sarcastic. You should know the difference by now.” You didn’t want to sound this bitchy, but… come on, he was asking for it.
  • “I understand sarcasm, I just don’t know why you would act like this when I’m just worried about your image and how other people look at it. Don’t take me wrong, it looks great on you, but it looks so great I feel I should be the only one to look at you like this. Am I wrong for caring this much about you?”
  • “No, you’re wrong by thinking you can boss me around on what to wear and how to behave like I’m one of your employees. I know you cherish me, I know you love me, and since you do, you should remember your promise on stopping this possessiveness. And yes, I know it looks great, I bought it with my money and I know what looks good on my body, and if you don’t like it, well… you can stay home.”
  • His eyes were widened, your voice was deep and calm, like you were discussing business with him, but you weren’t, you were giving him a little reality check.
  • “So, what are you going to do? Can I dismiss Driver Kim for today? I’ll call Seven and tell him he can pick me up.” “I’ll… I’ll go.”
  • Driver Kim noticed the tense atmosphere between you two and quickly rolled up the partition, even him was scared at your unusual coldness.
  • Jumin wasn’t sure on what to think. He just knew this silence was hurting, he didn’t want to apologize though.
  • But… considering his inexperience in relationships, he knew he probably was very wrong on this. Whad do you always tell him? Oh yes, trying to imagine if it was with him, be sympathetic…
  • Yes, he wouldn’t like having someone telling him what to wear and how to behave, his father used to do that and he hated and… oh, now he gets it.
  •  “I’m sorry.” He whispered, it was a little dark in the car, so he couldn’t see your face, but as you slipped your hand to hold his, he knew he was on the right track.

Saeyoung

  • You got used to his odd sleeping and eating habits.
  • And as much as it is part of his… charms, you get worried for him not eating anything.
  • But you having to play his mommy and make him eat every day tires you a lot. For fuck’s sake, he’s a grown ass man, he should be able to take care of himself!
  • So you made dinner, you served yourself and didn’t call him to join you. No, he can smell, if he’s hungry, he should eat.
  •  You were washing the dishes you used when he walked in the kitchen. “Why didn’t you warn me you made dinner?” his voice was a little whiny.
  • “The smell is a natural warning. It worked, since you’re here.” “Wow, so feisty. I should be the one getting snappy after working 13 hours non-stop.”
  • “I don’t see Vanderwood pointing a taser to you anymore. You’re doing this because you want to.”
  •  “Ah, come on, MC! What’s gotten to you? Are you mad because I’m not giving you attention right now? Is that what you want? A little attention? I’m giving it to you right now, so stop acting like a spoiled kid, for God’s sake! If I knew I was gonna face you with this temper, I would have stayed locked in my office!”
  • “I’m not mad. And even if I were, it wouldn’t be because of lack of attention, it would be because I give you too much attention, right? I’m always worried if you’re sleeping enough or eating well enough, I’m alwys bringing you food, asking you how you’re doing. Pretty stupid of me, right? Acting like I care about my reckless boyfriend?”
  • This man always has a comeback ready, this time he didn’t. He didn’t have any word forming in his head right now. Not even his brother in a bad mood can get this scary.
  • “Remember to wash the dishes if you decide to eat, okay? I’m going to brush my teeth and get ready to sleep. “I…I will join you.” “No, you’re not, you’re sleeping in the couch tonight. Or in your office, since you like that much.” SHIT!
  • Of course he couldn’t do any more work after that, you sounded… like him in those days at Rika’s apartment, oh, so that’s how it feels…
  • He was scared of facing you, he knew he had this talent of managing to screw up even more.
  • So he stood up in front of the bedroom door and gave an unsure knock. You didn’t answer. Oh… you were really pissed, right?
  • You weren’t overreacting. Knowing you, he knew you were probably holding this to yourself for a long time and he getting all sarcastic and douchy was the tip of the iceberg. This was wrong, he promised he would never lock himself away like this and neglect his own health, he was a changed man, you changed him. He needed to start acting more mature in order to suit you, didn’t he?
  • He told all this through the door. Still, no answer. Oh well, he would try again in the morning.
  • You opened the door, but didn’t face him as he climbed up in the bed. Well, giving him the honor to share the bed with you was a start on what would be a long night…

Saeran

  • Seriously, is there anything you two don’t fight about?
  • They are usually silly bickering and end as fast as they started, but there are other times when he really annoys you.
  • You know you should be more patient with him, but ugh… does he really have to be rude and snappy like this when you are just asking him something innocently?
  •  It’s happening again, you asked him about his contact lens, shouldn’t he get a new pair? And who knows the questionable precedence of these ones, maybe he could get ones with a prescription.
  • “And going to a doctor so my father can know everything about me and send me to jail? Good to know you want to see me behind bars, MC.” “You know very well we could get you a discreet doctor, no need for you to talk like that to me.”
  • “No need for you to ask stupid questions. Just leave my lens alone, why do you even care about this?”
  • “I ask myself the same sometimes…” “Oh, if you’re that unhappy, you know you can just leave whenever you want, don’t you?” hmmm… he didn’t mean that, yeah, he realized this as soon as he said it, he just got carried away by the adrenaline rush of your usual fights.
  • “I’m not unhappy. I would be unhappy if you went arrested, I would be unhappy if something happened to your eyes, I would be unhappy leaving you just because you’re a silly little boy picking on stupid little fights that never take us anywhere. So I’ll do you a favor and end this before I get really unhappy.”
  • Oh wow… this was… you were… really scary like this. He usually was the one acting this intimidating, but it was just to tease you, you definitely weren’t teasing him, you were pissed at him.
  • “And put down the toilet seat after you use it, please?” you said as you just remembered this, he waited for you to turn your back so he could run to the bathroom and put it down.
  •  Ugh, his therapist already told him, if something bothers him, he needs to know first: why does I bother him? Second: is there something he can do about this?
  • So why does it bother him? I don’t know, because you’ve been ignoring him for the last forty five minutes? And is there something he can do about this? Yes, apologize.
  • He ‘s not really good at this, so he hands you the phone, you look at him confused. “C-can you make an appointment for me with the doctor? I don’t like talking in the phone…” don’t smile, MC! Don’t let him know he can get away for being so adorable!
  • You call the doctor and set an appointment. “Will you go with me?”
  • “Of course I will” you say, giving him a little smile that quickly faded away. Well,you can smile,  you won this round.

TRANSLATION: “I’m so lonely. Sandra won’t even take my calls any more. So lonely.”

okay but after I watched TFA and came out of it like “wait what was this bit about? And that bit, it made no sense? Why did Luke run off?” and so on, and everyone else was like “it’s a trilogy, it’ll be explained in the next movie, they can’t give all the answers away immediately, it’s called suspense, duh”

nonsense, wasn’t it? Because they don’t know. Rian Johnson, the guy who is making the next installment, doesn’t know the answers. Which means that JJ Abrams and everyone involved in TFA don’t know the answers. Because the only other option is that they know, and just decided not to tell the guy who’s making the next movie. Which would make them beyond idiotic, frankly, and I don’t for a moment think that’s what happened here.

So all that stuff in TFA that made no sense? That we didn’t know the reason for? It simply made no sense. The reason doesn’t exist. I didn’t miss it because I’m not a good enough fan. There aren’t any layers of meaning to it. They sent Luke to live on an island so he’d be out of the way and Leia would have a mission and the audience would have a mystery to ponder.

Rian Johnson might be able to salvage it all and invent reasons and explanations for it all, but those reasons and explanations will NOT be what JJ Abrams & Co had in mind when they made it happen.

So the reason why Luke does this out-of-character thing and runs away from his responsibilities? Eh, we don’t know. We just thought it’d be cool, or something.

And that just steals whatever little faith I had that maybe, maybe, they had something in mind when they did all the other stuff. Maybe there’s a good reason why Han and Leia broke up, and their kid went to the Dark Side, and Snoke showed up, and the Republic fell apart again, and so on and so forth. Except, y’know, as it stands… it looks to me like the reason was “because that’s what needs to happen so we can have a cool plot that resembles ANH so we can get maximum nostalgia money from the fans”. All that stuff that happened off-screen? Handwaved. Literally. These aren’t the thought-out reasons and motives you’re looking for. Move along.

“It’ll all make sense once you’ve seen the other movies! It’s not out of character! It’s not just an excuse to re-do ANH! It’s all happening for a reason, they’ve just not told us yet!”

Yeah, right.

Genre:  Romance, Fluff af, kinda mad af Wonho

“Wonho?” he turned towards me. “Be my one night stand.” I confidently stated while I climbed on top of him. I must have shocked him because he froze. A smirk played on my lips as I leaned forward. One hand found its way to the back of his neck while the other trailed down his chest, toying with the buttons on his shirt. My lips grazed against his before they gently made contact with his neck.

He must have finally realized what was happening because his hands instantly went to the small of my back and my hips, in an attempt to pull me closer to him. I pulled away from his neck to look at him. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more serious look on him. his hands trail up my body to my neck. He pulls me into a passionate kiss, so passionate it knocks the breath out of the both of us. My hands pull on his shirt before unbuttoning it. I could feel his muscles underneath my hands.

Wonho was suddenly everywhere. He was all around me. Consuming me. Pulling me into bliss. I couldn’t think anymore. My mind clouded over. His hands were everywhere all at once. And then he wasn’t.

“Wait.” he hesitated. “You don't want to do this.”

I've read all of the discourse and I swear to merlin, you are all so fucking western... The question is not "is this antisemitism", it's "what can we do so our grandchildren won't have to worry about it" cause yes, the stereotype is VERY visible and all we need to do is make sure the stereotype will not be used in the future, not argue IF it exist. Or maybe it's just me living next to the old concetration camp, so I'm not objective.

this, this, a million times this! again, this is so eloquently put that i doubt there is anything i can say to add on to this, but thank you for your incredible input!

listen I want some real angst. i’m talkin, muse a is in this dumb ass relationship where their s/o is actually a piece of shit and muse b is just so DONE with muse a’s shit like you know you can do better why the fuck are you sticking with them just fucking go. and it’s not that happy full support crap because muse b has seen where being nice about it has gotten muse a, and they know their friend just needs some real tough love. and then like one day muse a and b are arguing hardcore over how irrational muse a is being and muse b is like  ‘i would treat you so much better.’

Hey Miya, actually I don't even know if you're answering questions now but, there was a controversy with kai, where he sounded pretty much sexist, it was on a tv show with g friend, but that got me curious about BTS, so my question is who do u think is most likely to be a feminist in BTS in order ?? And who's is most likely to have a empowered s/o if that makes sense. Thanks and I love your blog :)

Hey! Thank you, I appreciate it a lot! About that I won’t discuss it since time has gone by but I do know what you’re talking about. I didn’t like what happened, even if I do like him. Kai, that is. Anyway. I thought about not answering this publicly because I don’t want drama however this has been asked before and will probably be asked again so. Also I’ll answer this as if all of them were straight, but I’m not saying it’s the case. Who knows, right? But just to be clear that because of this specific topic I’ll have to answer in a heteronormative way (when it comes to being attracted to empowered women, not the being pro feminism part). So. Here we go.

That time when I got a call I had no jurisdiction over and had to transfer knowing with 100% certainty that it would be solved in the customer's favor but the customer refused to be transferred. Like, buddy. I can't do anything, if I promise anything I could get fired. Arguing with me for 15min won't help anything. I don't have the system to do what you ask. I know that you're right but I can't promise that. The transfers are for YOUR privacy, I know it sucks but it's not my fault.

ok this might be discourse but like. the director didn’t deserve a sympathetic ending?? he was obsessed and awful and hurt everyone he came into contact with, his justification for hurting tons of people was that he was the one who suffered the most/alpha counts as himself (horrors we inflict on ourselves) and he had no choice which tbqh is absolutely wrong, he purposefully manipulated and hurt people (including his family) non stop for his own gain and selfish reasons,,,,,

like do you think that calling ur daughter “your greatest creation” somehow redeems you for all the awful things u did?? like not only does that downplay the years of torture u put on alpha and make it seem like u somehow own carolina, you didn’t do shit buddy, she made herself great. u can’t just say smth nice and look sad and somehow be a good person yknow 

anyway in summary the director is Bad and i heavily dislike him and the day i call him church is the day i die GoodNight

You've been getting on each other's nerves all day and eventually you just go up to your room to take a break from arguing, but neither of you can stay mad long because you just don't have enough time with each other and as soon as you get up to apologize he's bursting into the room to apologize and all the while you're talking he pulls you to him and won't stop kissing your face and neck, 'H, I'm trying to have a conversation' , 'And I'm trying to have a little less conversation' lame I know

“Don’t try and make me all mad again.”

“Yeh won’t be mad, angel. Jus’ let me love on yeh, like I always do.” His hand slides in your hair, as he nibbles and suckles on your lower lip, making you moan softly into his mouth. 

Harry is mumbling something in between kisses, getting a little bit breathless, and he whimpers, when you pull away from him.

“What are you saying?” You ask, and look down at his fallen lips, all plump and raspberry red.

“I-I’m,” he swallows loudly, still breathing heavily. 

“I’m so sorry.”

I see posts all the time accusing radfems of gender essentialism, as in, believing that a person’s brain/personality/expression/social role/gender is tied inextricably to their biological sex. That’s about as far as you can get from radical feminism, in which “gender” is understood to be a false set of roles and traits that conservatives believe corresponds to sex and libfems believe are chosen or self-identified. To be really extremely clear, radfems believe that these categories themselves are wrong, that there is no woman-brain or woman-attributes, no identity or feeling that corresponds to womanhood. You cannot categorize brains or minds. People are (and should be allowed to be) unique in their personalities and self expression, in a way that has nothing to do with their biological sex.

Conservatives and libfems believe in ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ traits, personalities, and identities. conservatives believe there are only two categories and they correspond to sex, whereas libfems believe there is a spectrum (or kaleidoscope or whatever tf) that is entirely separate from sex.

Do think that Betty loves Jughead more than he loves her? Like he won't put her first before the Serpents?

well, the thing is, jughead’s commitment to the serpents make no sense, even after you add his love for his father (despite it all) to the equation, because fp has made his feelings clear (and occasionally cruel). so as of right now, yeah, i think he doubles down with them rather than let himself be with betty—which i suppose the writers/some may argue is because he once felt a sense of greater necessity to guide the serpents towards a better path, but he himself got sucked in. 

so it’s not as simple as “one loves the other more” and i’m not gonna engage with that. because it’s the sloppy writing, really. i keep saying it, and i keep coming back to it. 

there is no concrete narrative explanation for jughead’s continued involvement with the serpents in a way that feels sold or resonate, and perhaps hindsight will offer that, but i think many of us who even look at the show for what it is (soap) are feeling bemused regarding jughead’s priorities towards a gang that has really done nothing for him. 

again, characters do not have free will. these are writing decisions, and thus the question has to be: what are the goal of these stories? what are they saying? do they genuinely believe breaking up a main couple over and over again makes it somehow epic? 

right now, it feels completely all over the place and i don’t feel sold on much of it. so that’s my answer for you!

I've been arguing with one of my friends about Antifa. He said things like people shouldn't have the right to circumvent law, Antifa won't stop with Nazis, and will try to attack anyone who disagrees with them, why do they get to decide who is a nazi, the scum that bomb and shoot up innocent people are a "minute minority'. I put up some pretty decent arguments I think, but how would you have justified it?

I’m gonna go through hose arguments bit by bit and say what I think. Sorry this response took a long time I will try and give a good response as compensation. 

1) Circumventing the law: Firstly acting within the confines of the law are not easy and don’t always accomplish our goals or give us progress. At multiple points in the past few years different governments have discussed and imposed laws controlling or banning protest including but not limited to The US, Brazil, France, and Egypt. So if you wanted to protest but still act within the law depending where you are that severely limits your ability to protest issues at all. Secondly leading on from my last point your friend should consider the fact that the law Isn’t ethical, its not just either, its enforcement of power. The same law that stops protests, and so-called political violence, is the same law system that fines homeless people for obstruction, sends police to evict people from their houses, maintains the prison state, and protects corrupt rich politicians. Yes we may break the law by punching fascists… but so fucking what? The system neglected me so I’ll neglect it in return. 

2) Antifa won’t stop Nazis: Well. He’s right and wrong at the same time. Yes anti-fascists can’t kill the fascist ideologies we combat, ideas are pretty much impossible to kill off. This is why most anti-fascists settle on combating fascism wherever it rises and acknowledges the ideology can only get weaker instead of dying off. He is wrong however if we don’t mean permanent destruction of their ideology, in a practical and ideological stance we absolutely destroy fascism. Anti-fascist presence at any far right demo has caused fear and withdrawal among them, from canceling protests in up to 36 states but also fear to spew their hateful ideology in public. Over here in the UK (Ik I keep bringing it up) half of the extreme right network took a very heavy blow when anti-fascists attacked their anti refugee protest in the port town of Dover. Many fights broke out but the end result was many of the far right getting arrested, absolutely destroying their numbers. Here are the fascists from S.E.A in Croydon (Lol I recognize some peeps in that crowd) earlier this year, they can barely pull a dozen people if lucky and we partly have anti-fascists in Dover to thank.

 As for combating their ideology itself, our consistent shutting down of their ideology has lowered fascist numbers in the past, we need to keep the fight going. By shutting them down we deny them the chance to spread, on the streets or online. 

So no we may not destroy or end their ideology, but nobody can. But through our opposition of them we stop them from spreading as quickly, we’re in a world where the far right has great chance to thrive and grow, but the opposition keeps it weak and in the background of politics. 

3) Will try to attack anyone who disagrees with them: Your friend is seeming to mix up his opinions and perspectives with facts. To be an anti-fascist you must be against fascism. Thats it. Thats the whole requirement to it. It is not a standardized requirement for us to beat up whoever we disagree with, some people may do that, but thats an individual problem. I disagree with conservatives, republicans, nationalists, traditionalists, sexists, transphobes, terfs, fascists, liberals, ancaps, authoritarian communists, people who put pineapple on pizza,  and racists in general, . But I’ve only punched people who fit 3 of those categories. I wouldn’t punch a conservative or someone who puts pineapple on pizza, even though I very strongly disagree with both on many things. If your friend thinks all antifa punch whoever they disagree with then he’s not taking the debate seriously. 

4) Why do we decide who is a Nazi: We don’t. Some people throw around the term Nazi poorly but we have No control over who is and isn’t a Nazi. The definition isn’t up for debate, and therefore who is a Nazi isn’t up for debate. I think people who throw around the word Nazi as an insult are idiots, but its not all of us and its not typical of antifa. So your mate can shut it. 

5) Extremists are a “minute minority”: Well you’d think that based on how poorly and how little the media report on white power terrorists, but in reality far right extremism is an existing and legitimate threat. Over the past 50 years multiple Nazis have been arrested and found to have firearms, explosive materials, materials to make dirty bombs, copies of the Turner Diaries (Novel about instigating a race war, has been used as a white terrorist motive for decades. Check out political influences on Wikipedia), and clear other Nazi propaganda. The Nazi death squad group Combat 18 has had weapons and explosive material found in relation to it in every country its active in, their members are still active here in the UK moving among the B&H groups. 

Hell you can try and say they’re stand-alone individuals who act out of mental health or acted alone, but that might not be true and its too much of a risk to ignore. A core ideology among Nazi militants and far right terrorists is “leaderless resistance” which basically means a violent individual acts alone but is motivated to attack and aided by a group, a common goal between individuals pushes them in a direction and they can act as an individual. This is how Nazis get away with the lone wolf argument, their methods of organizing, planning, and attacking are designed so they aren’t automatically associated to a group or ideology. They may have made that bomb themselves, but someone told them how to make it, told them why, and told them where to set it off. 

And yes they may be a minority, but they are still a threat, same with Daesh. About 32 thousand people are members of ISIS, out of 1.5bn Muslims. Extremists may be rare but they’re still fucking dangerous. 

So in conclusion: Fuck the law, we are held back by it. We may not kill Nazism but we can shut it down. We don’t attack people we disagree with, we attack Nazis. We don’t decide whose a Nazi, we just decide who we punch on an individual level. Extremists are not as rare as we’re made to think and are a legitimate threat. I hope this all helped, sorry it took so long.

anonymous asked:

for the never have I ever, have u ever written anything where a character goes dark side? (MCU)

hmmmmm. I don’t think Tony playing the villain in a simulation counts. I have a thing where Natasha was an international terrorist and it takes a long time before she plays on the good side, but it’s not really what you mean either.

But I do have strong feelings about this, and since Secret Empire makes me so mad I had to go take a walk, I was actually thinking about this recently. 

And If I were to write something like this in MCU it would be absolutely without doubt be Dark!Steve. 

But none of this hand wave now he’s evil bull. None of this he always was, not even the idea that the serum itself is the corrupting force. I want Steve to be so righteous it turns to evil.

I would let Steve’s frustration with the modern political climate and the entrenched ideas, and the gridlock that stops them from helping push him further and further. So one day he does something the world isn’t ok with. Something like taking down a dictator because yes, they were beloved by 80% of their country, but they were killing the other 20%, and Steve wasn’t having it. And the world condemns the act because the leader was beloved. 

And Steve just kinda twitches, and apologizes, and says all the right things in interviews, but he also gets a second suit put together, without any of Tony’s trackers in it. With enough difference that you can’t tell it’s him. And yes, he has to leave the shield behind with the Cap suit, but he has guns, he’s not unarmed, and anyway, the world seems to think that Captain America hates guns, so this helps hide who he is. 

And that’s where it starts. One step at a time as Steve starts doing what HE thinks is right for no more reason than that HE thinks so. At first it is good things, but doing that slowly slides him further outside of morality. Just, one by one, Steve takes down bullies, or those that might be bullies, or those that might become bullies, and leaves increasingly graphic calling cards as The Nomad for those he kills/throws at police. 

And people are becoming scared of this man, and Steve is happy about that, because it means fewer and fewer are stepping up to be awful. Fewer people need to be punished. He can hear the echoes of Hydra’s mantras but knows that this is ok, this isn’t like that, bc Steve is a good man, and this is the right thing to do.

And it’s so easy when Tony confronts him to overpower him. It’s so easy. Tony didn’t come with the suit, he came to talk, he came with trust, and never expected to be thrown in a cell. And Steve announces that Tony was killed in a fight, and talks about how broken he is by that, bc the world still loves Captain America, and look to him. And Captain America won’t condemn the Nomad bc the people being killed are bad, and the world trusts him, and the world listens. 

So Steve is both reviled villain and beloved hero and the world doesn’t know that he’s controlling the entire story, for their own good, of course.

Tony sits there, with a news feed playing on a screen outside the cell, and watches reports of how this new villain is growing bolder. A country’s entire naval fleet is destroyed, with the sailors on board. Anyone that tries to hide the Nomad’s targets becomes a target. 

It’s not until months later, when the world is sitting in terrified peace that Steve actually speaks to Tony instead of handing him food and water and departing. 

Steve talks about how he’s finally done it. How the world is at peace, and there are no more bullies and how proud of himself he is. Bc of course steve talks to tony, he can’t tell anyone else what he’s achieved. Tony listens, and knows he should keep his mouth shut. If he can wait until Steve slips and lets Tony near technology, then maybe it can be fixed. Maybe Tony can tell the world and pry this claw from around the world’s neck. 

But Tony isn’t great at keeping his mouth shut, and rips into Steve, telling him how he’s the only bully left, and how his friends would be disgusted, and quoting everything he’s ever heard about fear, and calling Steve Hyrda’s spawn. How Bucky would be disgusted by what he’d done. How Peggy would hate him for this. How he’s betrayed everyone that ever loved him. 

And Steve smiles in this poisonous way and says something about how Tony will understand one day, and then Steve will let him out of the cell again. 

A few weeks later Bucky gets thrown in the cell with Tony, clearly on the losing end of a fight, and Steve is furious, lecturing about traitors, and what he’d done for these two men, how hard he’s trying to save the world. 

The Nomad destroys the UN and NATO later that night, the AU and the Arab league the next, simply because they were leading investigations to find and stop the Nomad.

Steve doesn’t understand how what he’s doing is wrong. He is moral, he is just, he is a Good Man. He knows how to help, and he’s going to, whether they ask him to or not. He doesn’t see how far he’s fallen. Not at the start, not when he wipes North Korea off the map after accessing the nuclear launch codes. Not at the end, when Bucky and Tony take him down. Even then he’s arguing that he knows what’s best, and yelling that he’s going to protect the world.

What do you think about tangled aus with keith as rapunzel and lance as finn? i won't lie, i've read a fic with this au and enjoyed it. i'm asking bc i saw your post abt beauty and the beast aus and i agree 100%. if you don't like this placement for the tangled au, which charcters do you think would fit better?

Personally, I’m never really too much of a fan of AUs that attempt to cast one set of characters as a different set of characters because they’ll never actually match up.

Like- Lance and Flynn. They’re closer than usual, with this, but I’d argue that Lance has a better hold on his issues than Flynn does. Flynn at the beginning of the story has taken an out- he’s completely covered up his soft emotional side and vulnerabilities, and cut off connecting with people. He has a very poorly-built and transient alliance with the Stabbington Brothers, sells them out with zero hesitation, and mocks them.
