  • Disney: So, how are we all doing today?
  • Fox: Well, we released Logan a few days ago, and that has gone perfectly.
  • Disney: Did people cry?
  • Fox: They were bawling.
  • Disney: Very good, very good. How about Netflix? I believe you have Iron Fist out in a few days.
  • Netflix: Uh, yeah, but the reviews haven't been great.
  • Disney: OK, I see. Don't worry, it's only one show, and we've got the Punisher on the way, we'll make it through. How about the comics division?
  • Marvel Comics: Um....

Dear American Gods Show Fandom Complaining About Laura, Character Development, Pacing, Lack of Ricky Whittle etc etc

- We’re barely a quarter of a way into the book if that

- Shadow will get a fuckton more screentime and development in future

- You may not like Laura but she is essential to the plot

- The show is also going out of its way to give more screentime and relevance to minor characters who don’t have much time or relevance in the book such as Bilquis, Salim, Mad Sweeney etc so be thankful for that

- The Coming to America segments are essential for context, cultural exploration, character exploration; you know, all those things which round out a show without the show directly explaining things to you

- There are more seasons coming which will, you know, delve more into the story and characters

- Calm yerselves down

anonymous asked:

What if Yuuri gave Victor an aphrodisiac? They would talk about it first, pick a day, and it'd be consensual, but they agree that Yuuri won't tell Victor when during the day he will do it to make it even more exciting for Victor. Or it could go the other way around, but I really like the idea of Victor getting all needy since we've gotten to see so much of Yuuri's needy side thanks to your beautiful fic.

Because I see the two of them being pretty adventurous sex-wise, this is totally something they might try. (I’m sorry this is so long, but I got invested in it…)

Background: There’s a drug similar to viagra (that was originally produced as a hairloss treatment (hahahaha poor Vic)) that will give the user a mock heat/rut that lasts for about 6 hrs. It’s primarily used by people that have gone through a ‘menopause’ of sorts (they don’t have heats or ruts anymore), but it’s also commonly used by Betas so they can feel what Alphas/Omegas feel. 

There’s a street-drug version that’s pretty potent and is used before raves and orgy parties (keeps you hard and horny for hours). And there’s prescription ones too, but doctors usually don’t prescribe unless you’re older and ‘need’ it, so the street drug is actually more common. 

I can see the two of them using it at home the first time just to test the effects. And yes, they’d talk about it beforehand. 

And then I can see Yuuri adding it to Victor’s water bottle one afternoon (after deciding on a few days timeframe for him to do it). And by the time they have supper (Yuuri was NOT expecting them to go out to a restaurant), Victor is squirming in his pants and flushed all the way up his neck to his ears. Makes for a fantastic night at home, though. And probably a late morning.

(But for some reason, I also kind of see them trying it once during an sex party they’re invited to. Of course, they just end up watching and playing together instead of joining in because they’re damn voyeurs.)

If you really want to see a needy Victor, just wait until I write a ‘Victor’s Rut’ fic to go along with YCPfE. 

  • Pidge: (voice-over) Long ago, the universe lived in harmony. But then, everything changed when Zarkon attacked. Only Voltron, Defender of the Universe, could stop him, but when the world needed it most, it vanished. Ten thousand years passed and my friends and I became the new paladins of Voltron, the new Defenders of the Universe. And although our power is great, we've still got a loooong way to go before we're ready to stop anyone. But I believe we can save the universe.
“Queen Sugar” just had one of the best speeches I’ve ever heard on Social Injustice

This needs to be heard by everyone. Reblog forever. This show deserves ALL THE EMMYS…

Melissa: Nova, our conversation today is going to focus on the idea of the journalists as activists. And looking at your body of work, of which I’m a big fan, you’ve covered everything from police corruption in low income communities to the problem of the American migrant workforce. When you think of your role as a journalist do you feel a sense of responsibility to take an advocacy position in your work?

Nova: I absolutely do. I worked hard to get to a place where I can choose the stories I want to cover, and it’s important for me to reflect humanity in my work, so there’s definitely an advocacy component in everything that I write. I think it’s critical that you use your platform, whatever that is…blogs, twitter, social media, whatever…to empower as well as educate.

Melissa: Let’s talk about a piece you wrote earlier this year on the “for-profit” prison complex and over-policing. I understand that you were able to help the young man featured in that story. His name is Too Sweet.

Nova: Yes, that’s correct. He’s been released on bail, but we still have a huge uphill battle to get his charges dropped. The Public Defender’s Office in Louisiana is woefully underfunded, yet they are sure happy to keep the bail money coming in. It could be years before Too Sweet gets a trial.

Melissa: But I just want to reiterate, his charges are quite serious. I mean “intent to distribute”, “assault on an officer”. Those are pretty serious charges.

Nova: Serious charges if they were true. Now, regardless, no minor should be held in an adult prison. They are not equipped to handle the emotional and psychological trauma of prison culture.

Melissa: That’s a good point. That’s a form of PTSD that we rarely talk about.

Nova: Yeah.

Melissa: Now, I know that you’re not publicly affiliated with the Black Lives Matter network or movement, but BLM has really changed the way that civil rights and social justice are articulated and the way they’re executed in this country. But now with one tweet you can move the needle. So as a journalist, give me your thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement as a whole.

Nova: The BLM energy was formally birthed in response to the 2012 acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s killer. And there have been chapters around the world that respond to incidents of anti-blackness and state sanctioned violence against black people. The movement is for people who are interested in the liberation of black lives.

Melissa: And yet, there’s serious criticism of BLM. What do you make of those critiques, especially of their relationship with Law Enforcement? 

Nova: The one criticism that frustrates me the most is this idea that there is a need for a leader, which is this coded language for meaning that there is no “straight male leader” at the helm. But truth is, civil rights work has been organized by communities of women, queer, and gender non-conforming people of color. Secondly, there’s this misconception that anything “pro-black” means “anti-white”. It doesn’t. Anybody who wants to fight for equity and justice should feel empowered to do so. I mean, reality is…law enforcement in this country is built on anti-black racism. As a community we need to interrogate our relationship with police. It’s critical for our survival. We deserve to be served and protected, and I want to work hand in hand with the brave men and women who agree with that on the force. Because they do exist. I know that for a fact.

-“I think it’s critical that you use your platform, whatever that is…blogs, twitter, social media, whatever…to empower as well as educate.”

Empower. Educate. Pass this along. Don’t let it die. The only way to fix what’s broken is to talk about it.

anonymous asked:

oh God, tho charges :( poor thing... i feel like crying and puking but also GOOD YES THANK YOU i hope they really end up going to jail

You and me both, nonny. To paraphrase a woman they spoke with on the news, “I’m devastated, but I’m crying tears of joy. This never should’ve happened, but Freddie’s death was not in vain - it’s bringing our city back together and starting change.”

Whether they go to jail or not (I am cautiously optimistic???), the fact that they were even charged is a step forward. This is really only the beginning.
