by the way i ship everything

I just want to say that @evenandsana is so strong and so brave. You put up with so much bs from these people who claim to be fans of a show, but can’t get through an episode without spewing their blatant racism and islamaphobia. You deserve 4000 awards for everything you do, from the education you provide everyone who seeks it, to the invention of ships like evana, and all the way to managing to defend yourself, and sana through all of the hell that they decide is fit for you. Thank you.

Shout out to my fave author

@missjanuarylily

January Lily’s fanfictions are some of the best OC stories I have ever read.  You all should be reading them.  Not only is Jan a fabulous author she is a wonderful friend meaning you should all be following her too.

About some of her stories:

Lost Along the Way series (Harry Potter): Leila is a precious gem.  Leila is everything I wish Harry Potter had in a sister.  She is snarky and intelligent and stubborn.  She shows the affects of growing up in an abusive household.  You get to see Leila grow.  You get an interesting take on the Slytherins. Overall 10/10 would recommend.

She Will Be Loved (Law & Order: SVU): JJ is a breath of fresh air to that series. The character has immediate chemistry with her love interest and I just want them to get together already. You cannot help but ship the two of them.  JJ has an intersting backstory I can’t wait for Jan to write into the story.

Only Fooling Myself (One Tree Hill): Sydney is the OTH character we never knew we needed. She is hopefully going to be keeping Lucas from becoming an asshole.  Syd is a basketball player with a serious crush on her bestie. Who has not been there? You cannot  help but root for the girl. 

Us Against the World (Supernatural): Elle Winchester is a cinamon roll who must be protected at all costs. She has a great backstory about the angels surrounding her birth. Jan takes Elle to a real place with perscription drug abuse and we get to see her overcome it. Elle also has a great dynamic with her siblings.

Ruby (Flash): When Ruby opens it feels like Abbi is supposed to be there. Abbi is established in the story before the accident. I liked how Jan was not scared to include a chapter where Abbi was not really all that present. But we have been getting to see her develop her powers. Not to mention that there is something going on with Wells/Thawne. Something eery going down there.

Holding Out For A Hero (Gotham): The first of Jan’s stories that I ever found.  Greer is what led me to Jan and her excellent writing.  Greer is not always what she seems and her relationship with Detective Gordon is totes adorbs. 

anonymous asked:

can i send a happy thought abt leigh? bc if he lost one eye, his depth perception is probably not what it should be so picture leigh trying to rush thru the ship or hurry to someone's quarters and just. bumping into everything and stumbling into walls and tripping over the space roomba that he thought was further away

of cOURSE YOU CAN SEND HAPPY STUFF

also im snORTING oh my god this happens…wAY too much. like it would be all intense with leigh running towards something and he just fuckin…trips over the space roomba and falls over.

he’d probably just stay on the floor out of embarrassment

anonymous asked:

I thought it would be a good idea to pretend to be dating my best friend (because everyone we go to school with ships us), but that just made me realize how I really feel about him. I told him how I feel and he said he'd talk to his uncle to try and figure out how he feels about me (he talks to his uncle when he's stressed). What should I do if he realizes he doesn't like me?

Remus: i’m pretty sure he loves you too by the way you described his actions. But if he doesn’t, maybe you could wait a bit. Take a pause and think everything through. Let things set down and maybe he will realise that he loves you more than he thought he did. :) good luck!

The Anti-Myth Masterpost

Out of sheer boredom and frustration, I’ve compiled a list of dumb things antis say and some facts to contradict them. Though I don’t think antis actually pay attention, they just vomit nonsense and never stick around for a rebuttal, here goes nothing anyway. Because I am tired of seeing good, pure people being harassed and sent death threats by these crazies. So here we go.

Anti-Myth: Otayuri is pedophilia.

Fact: Pedophilia is legally defined as attraction to or sex with a minor under the age of 13

Anti-Myth: Yurio is still a minor.

Fact: Yurio is now 16, the legal age of consent in Russia. He and whatever partner he chooses, as long as his partner is over the age of 16, is within their legal right. 

Anti-Myth: 16 year olds brains are not developed enough to comprehend sex.

Fact: A 16 year old can understand sex. Hell, even a 15 year old can. Teens at 15 or 16 hop into bed with older teens all the time–even I did. It’s actually normal. Plus, 16 is a far more common legal age of consent in the developed world anyway, this is not some perverted law by Russia and Kazakhstan, it’s actually very very normal. Even in Canada, 16 is the legal age of consent. If you’re American, respect your own laws, but we’re talking about A. fiction, and B. another country.

Anti-Myth: Otabek is too old for Yurio.

Fact: Otabek is literally 2.5 years older than Yurio. They’d literally be a junior and senior in high school, which happens all the time. It did with me, it did with countless others, and none of us were being abused. Plus, Otabek is not technically an adult, he’s still a teen himself. Same with JJ, if that is your ship. 

Anti-Myth: Shippers are disgusting because they are forcing Yurio into a sexual relationship and don’t respect their friendship.

Fact: Dude, if you want to see them as platonic friends, go ahead, no one is stopping you. Secondly, I’ve never met a shipper who doesn’t enjoy their friendship as being the stable building block of their relationship. For you, the relationship stops there. For us, we go on to see them as starting a romance after they’re ready. It’s all about the friendship, we just add to it.

Anti-Myth: Shippers like to sexualize 15 year olds. 

Fact: Well, maybe a few do. I mean, that’s what happens in big fandoms, you get some bad apples, especially if they come from countries themselves where the consenting age is 14 or something. But many, many shippers do not. They usually ‘sexualize’ Yurio when he’s a little older, or like to imagine him a little older when he starts becoming intimate. Plus it’s not just us, the creators and animators of the show have been sexing up Yurio for months now in official art, and with WTTM flashing his nipples and abs–I mean, don’t blame us.

Anti-Myth: Otayuri conditions children to think pedophilia is normal.

Fact: First of all, no it doesn’t. Yet again, pedophilia is any relationship where one is over the consenting age, and the other is under the age of 13. Which is not happening here. It may give them the impression that 16/18 is normal, and yeah it is, especially in many developed countries. If you have a problem with that, take it up with them, not us. This really should not be a hard concept. Also it’s FICTION. Do people jump into bed with their siblings after watching Game Of Thrones? No, because they’re not idiots. Not everything is based on American laws. This is an anime, written by a Japanese woman, made in Japan, and a lot of anime sexualizes young teens. No otaku I know of are hoping into bed with kids because of anime, unless they were already pedophiles. It doesn’t develop with a goddamn cartoon.

Anti-Myth: I’m uncomfortable with this ship because when I was younger I was abused by–

Fact: Okay, stop right there. I will try and explain this the best way I can. Whatever happened to you in your past is tragic and I do sympathize (one of my cousins was abused when she was younger so I know the horrors of dealing with that), but I’m sorry, it has nothing to do with shipping two teenagers. You’re imagining abuse, despite nothing canonically abusive happening. Otabek would never hurt Yurio. He’s no pervert. See, Americans who prey on 15 and 16 year olds do so because they KNOW it’s illegal. That’s why they do it. But if you’re from a country where, once again, the legal age of consent is 16, there is no abusive mindset. It’s normal behavior. There is no perversion or predatory behavior, because it’s not illegal. I do understand you being uncomfortable and it bringing up memories for you, but the reality of the situation is there is no actual abuse, and you really must try and understand that. This is literally like saying I can’t post pics of dogs because you were bit once, and that I’m condoning you being bit or something. It’s not true, nor is it fair to me, I just like dogs. But I do hope you find peace in your life.


All this being said, I will admit I use to be an anti myself. For about ten minutes, until I realized all this stuff and I knew I was being silly. And hey, there is a good chance Otayuri could become canon after everything we’ve seen, so it’s a good idea to be prepared for that by trying to understand these points I’ve made. It’s not too late to see things differently and to be a decent human being.

me: i hate everyone and everything. religion, politics, emotions, society… all overrated.

also me: hallelujah. jfc. my OTPs are TOO CUTE RN. praise the jESUS. i want to thank japAN fOR makING thiS aLL possiBLE ASDFGHJKL

Yuri on Ice visual storytelling meta

While watching Yuri on Ice I couldn’t quite understand the vague sense of frustration I felt with some scenes where one thing was being told and a different thing was being shown. You know, like when Yuuri is all like “those are lucky charms blah blah” and the entire setting, montage, frames, sound etc. just scream “PROPOSAL”. The same goes for the airport scene, the kiss in ep 7 and some minor scenes too. It’s almost like the visuals tell a slightly different story than words and actions of the characters.

It seems like the writing is more focused on an inner journey, a path to self discovery etc., while the settings, montage, light, sound effects tell a romantic story - it all just bluntly screams “a love story”. The usage of romance iconography (like running to meet the lover) is clearly intentional and never a parody. They look like a couple. And yet we all feel that need for more confirmation.

I couldn’t quite put it into words until now, but there is indeed a curious gap between storytelling and directing here.

Disclaimer: I worked in a big-scale animation production, it kinda changes the way you look at things. And you start seeing that such a production is a result of many people having different ideas and different attitudes towards the same material. And even when they work together, they might end up telling different stories.

And that’s what I think is the case with YOI.

I think this gap between the raw story and its visual storytelling actually subtly reflects the attitudes of Mitsuoru Kubo (writer) and Sayo Yamamoto (director).

Kubo is very focused on characters’ inner journey and leaves almost everything to viewer’s interpretation, driving us all nuts with her vague answers. While Yamamoto apparently ships Victuuri shamelessly and comes up with scenes like the airport reunion (bless that woman).

Kubo tells a brilliant story about struggling to accept yourself, about getting over your failures, about struggling with (incredibly well-portrayed) anxiety and finding strength to go on. Yamamoto on the other hand literally does all that is humanly possible within directing boundaries to tell a pure and sweet love story, on top of all that is already there.  

I’m not saying that Kubo didn’t write Victor’s and Yuuri’s relationship as romantic.

What I’m saying that the one who tells the love story is not Kubo. It’s the director and the animation team. They tell us the love story. And if you can’t find what you are looking for in Kubo’s words, please pay attention to the pictures.

After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. ;)

  • “Is it a question of if, Burr, or which one?”
  • “As long as i’m alive Eliza, I swear to god you’ll never feel so-,” his voice?? when he says this?? my sexuality.

su sucks because its just full of faux progression

its full of strong female characters! except no, not really, the gems arent actually women

its full of POC! except no, not really, the gems dont actually have races

its full of positive gay representation! except no, not really, theres only one canon, healthy gay ship, and theyre rarely on screen. the only other actually-gay character is an abusive obsessive wreck who puts children in danger and cant get over her unrequited DEAD crush.  everything else is just ship bait with no confirmation

why were we all praising this show again?

Little things about f!Shenko from ME3 that I love:

  • The way Kaidan looks with muted longing and respect each time he sees Shepard. It’s like an advanced version of ME1′s puppy eyes: his adoration and admiration is still there, but it’s tangled up in the darkness that lies between them.
  • The way they chuckle when they banter to each other after they reconcile on the Presidium, and in their lighter conversations thereafter.
  • The way he holds her hand to his* face each time she cups his cheek as if he’s making sure she’s really there and he wants to hold a part of her to him.
  • THE WAY HE KISSES HER HAND WHILE HOLDING IT TO HIS FACE ARE OYU KIDDING ME THAT’S MY JAM BIOWARE
  • The sure and simple way he says how he loves her “‘til the end of time.” It’s not a declaration or grandstanding, it’s a statement of absolute fact. Shepard is It. Always was, always will be.
  • the LOOK OF HORROR ON HIS FACE AS HE PLEADS WITH HER “DON’T LEAVE ME BEHIND”
  • HIM HOLDING OUT HIS HAND AS SHE STEPS AWAY FROM HIM BECAUSE HE STILL WANTS TO HOLD ONTO A PART OF HER
  • Him trying to be all suave and impressive in the kitchen but he gets so flustered just to have her nearby that he creates a very likely kitchen emergency
  • Basically just everything about f!Shenko that flips the het romance dynamic of “flustered head-over-heels starry eyed woman falls for a capable, charming, tough man“ into a flustered starry eyed MAN falling for the capable, tough woman because that is EVERY SHIP I LOVE IN EVERYTHING EVER
  • the way he pitches his voice lower into that husky rasp when he’s being sexually suggestive i mean r u kiddin me, u can get it all day every day, alenko

i drew this the other day not even thinking about it being klangst week?? so i hope this isnt too late, cause i decided to post it anyway. this was an impromptu collab with @sakura-petal91 [here is their half!] 

that hanahaki thing is really popular recently but i havent read any fics having to do with it yet (im just intrigued by the visuals) so if you have any hanahaki fics youd recommend send them my way! they dont have to be klance either i ship everything under the sun. 

(the flowers are blue clematis!)
