can we talk about their support please

Please let’s talk about Maggie ‘selflessly looking out for Alex’ Sawyer for a moment please. Now, we know what her coming out was like:

So let’s go back and look at this scenes with this new knowledge of Maggie’s background:

We have her apologizing to Alex, cos she knows from her own experience it’s nobody place to out somebody else.

Imagine how Maggie must have felt, listening to Alex’s coming out, being as much supportive as she can, cos she wants her to have it better than she did.

Here according to new canon, Maggie is lying. Sadly I think when Floriana was shooting this scene, the writers didn’t have the Maggie’s coming out story figured out yet. Cos I believe Flo would act this differently, if she was aware of the fact Maggie is lying at the moment. Her response feels genuine, remembering her parents reaction, it just doesn’t hint in any way that Maggie might be lying, no hint of sadness in her face or voice, nothing. I am a little sad about this, because I believe Flo would act this out very differently if she knew Maggie is lying and why she is doing so.

Maggie is genuinely happy for Alex at this moment and still 100% supportive, bottling up all the feelings she must have had while learning new information about Alex’s coming out.

Again, imagine what Maggie must have felt at this moment. Happy for Alex, but nevertheless hurting inside, remembering her own parents reaction.

And after all of that, all of things Maggie has been through in her life, we got this:

And that is not all. Although she had every right to crumble under all of the emotions bubbling up with the Valentine’s day and with Alex surprising her against her wishes, she realizes she hurt Alex’s feelings with her behavior and apologizes:

Maggie is as selfless person as it gets. Thinking about Alex and her coming out going alright, way before she even realized she might have some feelings for her. Caring for her because she is her friend, wanting her not to suffer in any way as she did with her own coming out. Putting aside her own hurt, old wounds and bad experience, being nothing else than super supportive friend and later a girlfriend.

Maggie Sawyer is a hero to me and I hope Alex feels the same way.

OK BUT WHY AREN’T WE TALKING ABOUT HOW MARKIPLIER DID A ‘TRY NOT TO SMILE’ CHALLENGE AND CAME ACROSS THE VIDEO OF THIS SCARED, STRAY DOG BEING RESCUED

HAD TO PAUSE THE VIDEO TO GO GET HIS OWN PUPPER FOR EMOTIONAL SUPPORT SO HE COULD HOLD HER AND GIVE HER KISSES

THEN WAS SO TOUCHED BY THE VIDEO AND THE PEOPLE WHO WERE BEHIND SAVING THIS POOR LITTLE PUPPY

THAT HE DONATED A THOUSAND DOLLARS TO THE ORGANIZATION RIGHT THEN AND THERE

LIKE CAN SOMEONE COME CRY ABOUT THIS WITH ME PLEASE

THIS IS WHY WE NEED TO SUPPORT GIRL GROUPS!

We have lost so many groups because people don’t support them and sleep on their debuts and comebacks. These ladies are constantly releasing bops and have intense choreo and are immensely talented and yet people judge them as unworthy of their attention. Please support girl groups, whether that’s by voting for them, buying physical copies of their album or digital or even just streaming and sharing their MVs. I’m not talking about just the popular groups, I’m talking about severely underrated female idols who deserve respect. We need to make it a goal to give girls a chance and give them the support they need and that goes beyond just “oh I’m sorry they disbanded” we can do better.

Please Stan girl groups or at least support the the best you can. Please

I am glad that Moonlight won and La La Land didn't.

BUT

La La Land does not deserve to be demonized.

People talking about Moonlight “snatching” the award are missing the point of creatives coming together to support one another. Moonlight deserves the award and La La Land handed it over as graciously, tactfully, and encouragingly as is even possible to do so in such a confusing and emotional moment.

Moonlight deserves the award hands down, but La La Land is still a good film. These actions do not cancel out the other - because Moonlight is the real winner, does not make La La Land a bad or undeserving film by default. We cannot praise the supportive interactions and reactions of the two teams onstage while simultaneously being bitter, salty, or mean-spirited in our own interactions and reactions.

Moonlight won - awesome! Historic! We should talk about how important this is!
La La Land didn’t - there could only be one winner, but it’s still a great film deserving of praise!

Please don’t use this as fodder to create more division and squabble. Two great films were represented onstage, and they supported each other. We can do the same.

Some things I’ve just realized I [may] never get to see
  • The cluster saving Wolfgang from BPO
  • Will taking down Whispers and BPO
  • Will returning to Chicago and meeting Diego
  • Nomi and Amanita getting married
  • Lito acting in his Hollywood movie
  • Lito introducing the cluster to Hernando and Dani
  • Wolfgang and Kala meeting in real life
  • WOLFGANG AND KALA LIVING A HAPPY LIFE IN PARIS
  • Sun taking revenge on her brother
  • Sun reuniting with her dog
  • Sun visiting Min Jung, Soo Jin, and Lina
  • Capheus successfully running for office and making changes to his country
  • Capheus finding the best medicine available for his mother (and Kabaka)
  • Capheus being happy with Zakia
  • Riley becoming well known DJ
  • Riley returning to Iceland with her father
  • Will and Riley living happily
  • Nomi finally getting her mother to accept and love her
  • Sun reuniting with detective Mun
  • Kala explaining everything to Rajan, getting support from her family to go for her own happiness
  • Kala kicking some asses
  • Kala taking revenge on Lila
  • The cluster living together
  • THE CLUSTER BEING HAPPY
  • Sense8 getting season 3, 4, 5, etc.

And look at what Netflix gave us. Now excuse me while I go cry in a corner.

Update: I didn’t mean to sound so depressed when writing this post, but now that I realize how depressing it actually is, please go read other posts on my blog about some ways we can fight to get Sense8 back, it is very important so please read, share, pass it on, call Netflix, talk to them, send requests, everything you can, because as long as there is hope, we will not give up.

Wanna learn about HoneyBees and Honey?

I’m not going to start discourse on this publicly so if you want to talk to me you’ll have to pm me about it or send a non anon ask, but

bee keepers do NOT hurt or stress out bees to get their honey.

Yes we supplement them with sugar water during the droughts and when flowers aren’t at their peak.

Those up north also supplement them with sugar water as well as their own honey to make sure that they will last over the winter. 

No, it is not cheaper to kill your bees than take care of them over the winter. No one does that. It costs 150 or more for a starting nucleus of bees which doesn’t give you enough to get excess honey until after a year so to get enough bees off the bat to jump back to where you were you’d need hundreds of dollars and that clearly isn’t cheaper than wrapping them up with some of their honey and some sugar water. 

No, people don’t go into their hives during the winter storms in the snow to give them sugar water instead of leaving them honey. even with flowers bees use a mason jar of sugar water all up in 2-3 days, you don’t take all their honey and give them gallons of sugar water. Thats not even practical. Don’t listen to these lies. 

No you don’t kill any bees by taking their honey. There are multiple boxes, bottom boxes are for babies, brood boxes, theres a separator so the queen doesn’t make babies in the top boxes, called supers. On the top boxes, you take out the frames and bees move by themselves, some people smoke them away before lifting the frames, or you can take a very soft bristle brush called a bee brush and usher them. Usually they don’t stay messing around on capped honey though. 

Facts about smokers! Can smokers hurt bees? Truth? Yes. They CAN. Doesn’t mean they do. People usually use pellets or pine needles and natural things in their smokers that they can just pick up off the ground. They don’t produce a hot smoke. You can easily check this by spraying your arm and if its too hot for you its too hot for the bees, which it never is if you use the right stuff. Otherwise the smoker works by interrupting their dances and vibrations to each other that tell them to work. Instead they go deeper into their hive closer to the queen to get her signals back. This doesn’t hurt them, just interrupts them for a minute so that you don’t hurt or squish them when taking out frames. 

Bees need us. Only 6% of wild honey bees last in the wild. They have a LOT of enemies and without us they would be extinct at the moment. They need help against mites, many beetles, wasps, bears, and other little buddies you can find in the wild. We check their young, make sure they are growing properly, get enough food and water, and need help to properly split when there are too many of them and taking their honey is like helping them by cleaning the clutter in their house because they make more honey than they can use. They wont just stop working, keeping them in place is vital for their survival. 

I’m just really tired of the lies about bees and if people protest against honey or beekeepers. I’m sure you’ve all seen the posts about how most of our produce and plants will go away. They need us as much as we need them. 

Also note, 75% of honey in grocery stores is just a weird sugar substitute in a form that replicates honey. So if you want to support the bees, please pay attention to what you buy! 

Sorry if this turns people off, but this is very important to me and one of the only places I can actually get word out. I’m very blessed to have you all with me and once I’m all settled I will do that giveaway I was talking about with stim toys! Thanks for listening <3

Can we please talk about how surprised Mon-El seemed that just being there and holding Kara was enough?

I felt like when he was talking with Winn and he said “what’s left for me?” what he meant was “what’s left for me to do for her?” as in she’s Supergirl - what could she need from him? I think he was kind of afraid to ask and have her realize that she didn’t actually need him for anything.

I think he realized in their last scene that being there, supporting her in the simplest ways, was enough for her and it kinda blew him away. I think he was struggling to see what he could give to someone so incredible and strong and I think those little expressions - the smiles and the soft looks on his face - were showing us that he understands that yes she’s amazing beyond words but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want someone to be there for her at the end of a terrible day. 

He asked what she needed from him and he probably wasn’t prepared to hear that just being there was enough. From what we know about his past there probably hasn’t been a time in his life when just being Mon-El was enough for someone. Especially someone he cared about and that he wanted to comfort and support. He is so new to all of this and I can’t imagine what it meant to him for her to tell him that all she wanted from him… was him.

Hey, I just want to say something: It’s pride month. When you make all your cutesy posts listing a dozen different orientations to be proud of, please, please don’t leave aromantic people out.

(And before exclusionists get on my case- If you don’t think we’re LGBT+, fine. I don’t want to start this argument up. I’m talking specifically to people who include aces and aros. If you don’t then this post is not for you and I don’t care what you do.)

Aros are so often forgotten. I see so many posts that are like “Support lesbians! Support pansexuals! Support asexuals!” etc. but nowhere are aromantics included. We deserve to be proud too, and that can be hard, especially when we’re so often ignored. I personally had a lot of internal struggle over my identity for a long time because I didn’t even know it was possible to be aromantic, since nobody ever talked about it. I’m sure I’m not the only one who went through that, and there are probably people still going through it even now.

So please, just… Acknowledge us. That’s all I ask. We exist. Please be proud of us, too.

Lesbian Vilde and Magnus being friends
  • It takes a while for Magnus getting used to Vilde being a lesbian, it is probably a lot of him forgetting about it in the beginning. Like him being like “why don’t you hook up with guys anymore?” And vilde being like “I’m gay??? I told you?”
  • On the other hand Magnus is like super supportive to make up for all the times he is stupid. His text conversation with Vilde is something like this:
    • Magnus: “It is this very pretty girl that works at Coop”
    • Vilde: “????”
    • Magnus: “Since you like girls!!!1!”
    • Vilde: “Is she gay?”
    • Magnus “wait… I will run back and check”
    • Vilde: “NO MAGNUS”
  • On that note Magnus tries to be a good wing man, he really does but him running up to girls asking if they are gay is not the best way to help Vilde score.
  • When Vilde goes to her first gay club she brings Magnus along. Nobody talks to them and Vilde pretends that it doesn’t bother her. Magnus is like what?? then he walks around and overhears a conversation by two girls there:
  • “A straight couple in a gay bar….” Magnus relizees the girls are talking about him and Vilde and he buffs in to the conversation “excuse me?” The girls probably look at him like he is caring the plauge. “Hey, Listen the thing is that my friend over there just came out as a lesbian. We are not dating she just needed some support”. And the girls are like “oh.. sorry we didn’t know”. And then Magnus gets a great idea “can one of you girls walk over and flirt with her a little. She has some confidence issues, please”
    • One of the girls just shrugs and walks over to hit on Vilde. Vilde is sitting by the bar like a lost puppy constantly fixing her hair and fiddling with her straw and then this pretty girls comes over and Vilde is all ???me??you want to talk to me???I can flirt with a pretty girl in public!!!! They start talking and Magnus gives her thumbs up from the bar.
    • After that Vilde goes alone to the gay bars (or with Eva). 
  • On the subject of Eva Magnus is  the biggest evilde shipper around. Always pushing them together and if they all three hang out being caught between “I should leave so they can get together” or “I can’t leave I want to see them fall in love”
  • When they finally get together Magnus is so happy and smily and hugs them both.
  • When Magnus gets girlfriends (he falls so quickly in love. he likes to pretend he is an emanational less vessel also known as føkkboi but he is an lovesick puppy desperate for an significant other) Vilde is all nice and smile to the person’s face but the moment Magnus leaves she gives them the “I love my bff and if you hurt him I will be very angry talk”.
  • Eva is also very happy every time Magnus gets a new SO because then they can actually have double dates and not Magnus third wheeling after her and Vilde on dates. 
  • Everytime Magnus breaks up with someone Vilde is his go to shoulder to cry on, but seeing Magnus cry makes her cry and that is how Isak finds them like both crying on the floor and him being like “wtf happened here?”
  • One time when Magnus refers to his girlfriend and Vilde as “his girls” his girlfriend is like “Don’t do that we are not defined by our relationship to you or any other man” and Vilde is like “I like her she is like Noora”.

to the people living with their abusers who aren’t able enough to get out, who are so traumatized that they can’t function, i hear you. you’re not worthless, you’re not weak or deserving of punishment. even if you’re an adult. when you’re traumatized and you live with the person (or people) who abuse you, that fear doesn’t always turn to active motivation to escape. sometimes being retraumatized sucks away our ability to function because we’re using all our energy focusing on the immediate threat. why would you have extra room to think about a job or school when you’re in danger? your brain is trying to protect you. please remember that you’re not failing. you’re coping with an overwhelming situation, and sometimes that’s the best you can do.

Hey hey! Could I please have a scenario or reaction with BTS that, since I have a stutter when I talk, where they defend or find out about it?

#NO TRIGGER WARNING KS

I’m sick of it. Sick of acting like I’m treading on glass because of KS haters. Are they too stupid to distinguish fiction from reality?? Are you going to go bash Edgar Allen Poe or Stephen King now for creating such controversial pieces of Literature???
Listen folks, even If people are fetishizing or shipping Sangwoo x Yoonbum they don’t obviously support such relationships outside fiction, because IT IS WRONG. Everyone realizes that, we’re not stupid impressionable 5 years old. We understand that’s why we are in this fandom.
Such pieces of Literature and art are very important because they make us think and understand so much.
We can understand how mental disorders work, how emotional manipulation and gaslighting works, and as a writer and an artist it is very important to be versatile and open minded about even such concepts.
THE MESSAGE YOU HATERS ARE GIVING IS ONLY THAT WE SHOULD ACT LIKE EVERYTHING IS FINE AND STAY MUM ABOUT OTHER WISE VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES LIKE ABUSE AND MENTAL DISORDERS.
Fiction is all about creating and exploring situations. In case of killing stalking we learn what goes in the mind of a murderer and how trauma affects people.

You know who is really committing crimes here? YOU HATERS. By threatening murder and telling someone to kill themselves just because someone likes killing stalking. By demeaning and using vulgar language against us WHICH IS AGAINST CYBER LAW.

You talk about us supporting bad things and here you are actually trying to talk someone into killing themselves. You know what, we can actually get you persecuted for saying that.

#NoTriggerWarningKS
Because I’m done with being afraid for liking Killing Stalking which is a marvelous work of fiction.
You won’t find me giving a trigger warning for my killing stalking posts.

Please spread this tag #NoTriggerWarningKS in support of the Killing Stalking fandom, even if you aren’t in the fandom but know it’s okay to like any form of fiction and being part of a fandom.

Thoughts on Creation Club &  “Paid Mods”

Admittedly it’s been years since I’ve been a modder, but here are some rough, bullet point thoughts. 

  • Don’t think of this as paying modders for mods, because it’s not really that. Think of it as Bethesda hiring third party developers and giving them a cut of the profits rather than a salary. The relationship here is between developer and publisher, with milestones and dev support, not one of a company providing a storefront and taking a cut. 
  • Bethesda is investing far more money and effort into this than anyone ever has before. They’re dedicating QA and localization time to the mods, and, if the talk of milestones is accurate, also the attention of a producer or two. While their previous attempt could very well be characterized as a cash grab, with the company exerting very little effort, they are definitely committing a lot to making Creation Club work. Additionally, it sounds like a lot of the content on the Creation Club is going to be made by traditionally paid developers, so freelancers aren’t shouldering all of the burden. 
  • Videogame production varies widely in staffing needs during different stages of a project. In the early stages, they’ll need a boatload of programmers and a few artists and designers. In the later stages, they’ll need a bunch of artists and designers while the programmers are relegated to bug duty. Creation Club is likely a way to keep the studio occupied and earning money (thus, not laid off) while they do not have anything to do on a proper big project. Remember the gamejam from after Skyrim? This is the opportunity to release those projects while supporting the studio. 
  • This may very well also be a way to occupy the content creators of Bethesda while the programmers do something about the engine, like everyone’s been asking. 
  • While this is a new thing for singleplayer Bethesda games, this is pretty much the same sort of thing as the Crown Store for ESO or any other MMO. The addition of 3rd party (mod) content is the only “new” thing - and it is barely new when we consider that companies already frequently outsource DLC (or even main game) content. The only difference is that the developers are now approaching the publisher rather than the other way around. 
  • The Creation Club will cause has caused division in the community. Part of it is due to the perception and the function of the program (choosing certain modders, meaning real or perceived favoritism/elitism, putting money into the equation), part of it is due to the nature of the community (modders as a whole are a fickle and drama-filled bunch). This is natural, for now, but I do not think that it must, much less should, persist. Modding has always had its superstars, those modders whose names everyone knew, mods everyone recommended, opinions everyone respected. It has always been a cult of personality and timing as much as it has been of quality. Unless someone is already full of themselves and a total ass, getting into the Club isn’t going to magically ruin them. 
  • Many modders will not participate in the Club, due to ideological opposition, unwillingness to submit to a publisher-style relationship with Bethesda, dislike of the software, inability to publish their sorts of mods on the platform, etc. While the first people on the platform will undoubtedly be well-known names (Bethesda would be foolish to not launch with some famous support), the smaller ecosystem may very well prove to be a boon to less famous modders. Fewer mods = better chances that someone will find your mod.
  • I would go so far as to say that we owe it to modders to give this thing a chance. Someone releasing a new bow on Nexus, nearly six years into Skyrim’s lifespan, isn’t going to get much traction. Someone releasing a bow into a brand new, curated and supported system, showcased front and center to an audience of millions of console players? Suddenly, that newbie modder has a chance. But only if we don’t chase them away with flames and accusations of treason first. Instead, we should encourage them, even if we don’t intend to ever spend money on their product. That newbie modder can be nurtured into a helpful and vital part of the community, and may release free content down the line, too. 
  • (If you ever run into a great mod/art/fanfic/theory/etc. that you want me to look at and talk about, please do send it my way.) 
  • It bears repeating: don’t flame, threaten, or otherwise harass the people who want to sign up for the Creation Club. I saw a lot of this the first go around, and that is the real toxicity in the community, not modders wanting to get a little something back. 
  • Every hobby has someone making money from it. It’s why Etsy, Redbubble, Amazon self publishing, Patreon, etc. etc. etc. exists. The fact that some fan artists are able to live on their fan art hasn’t stopped other people from making fan art. The fact that a Skyrim modder got hired by Bungie didn’t shut down the Skyrim modding scene. Neither will people making a few bucks through this new thing stop everyone else from modding. 
  • If people do withdraw their mods due to this, or stop giving advice, or otherwise become dicks, it is because they were already dicks to begin with. See the above. 
  • In other words, just how well this works (or doesn’t work) is mostly up to us, the community.
split sequel, ugh

apparently M. Shyamalan hasn’t learned anything from making Split, since it was such a hit despite demonizing those with DID. 

for those with screen readers: it’s called “Glass” and will be out in January 2019. it’s being called a “comic book thriller”. 

update: he finished the script (on Apr. 26th). actors are already chosen, and a distributor and producers are already lined up.

filming began for Split about a year and a half before it came out, therefore I think we can safely assume that filming will start now or will start soon. 

now is the time to act. 

source for above tweet 

Phil DeFranco is excited about it. He talked about it on his show. 

Here are some YouTube comments about it. They’re mostly negative ones, people who are supporting those with DID are their points getting shot down. 

Time to do this all over again, I guess. :/ 

Please try to get those who might want to see it to boycott it. #boycottglass

can we please talk about Phil Lester

Phil “spent all night in the hospital with Dan when they weren’t sure what was wrong” Lester

Phil “sends his friends customized gifts to congratulate them” Lester

Phil “makes others anxiety feel better by doing the thing with them” Lester

Phil “supported Dan when he decided to drop out of university and helped him through that uncertain time” Lester

Phil “I lost a friend when I was young but I’m living with a smile because I know that’s what he would’ve wanted” Lester

re: [quest] Chapter 4 “sponse”

Hello!! So … before we get to it, here’s my explanation of what I’m up to with re: quest. So far, I’ve been BURIED in school and, as far as translations go, have mainly been chipping away at outlines/summaries as well as my tagging system to make things as convenient for you guys as I can. But, at the same time, I thought I should give you some kind of content to get the ball rolling! So I spent all day yesterday and today fleshing out my translation for Part 1 of Chapter 4, “Sponse” (I’m pretty close with the rest of the chapter too – just have lotsa editing to do). This chapter is about Hori Chie and Tsukiyama Shuu and is very cute (happy birthday the other day, 2/25, to Hori, btw!!)♥

About my tagging system and overall formatting: so far, my links for desktop are all set. This post will have Part 1 of the chapter in full under the cut (mainly for mobile users). While posts like this will have as much content as I can include in them, I’ll be using posts primarily as way of announcement for updates. All of the translation content will be on my blog’s Quest Navigation Page, which can also be accessed through my translations page on the main navbar (I am aware that these links don’t work for mobile – that’s why I’ll try to put as much content as I can in posts. The issue is that I can’t guarantee content in posts will stay available). Finally, a disclaimer: I’d encourage anyone invested in the Tokyo Ghoul series to buy the official copies of this light novel and its official translations when they are released in your area to support the authors and publishers.

Thank you everyone for your patience and please please please, don’t hesitate to send me corrections/suggestions/asks and messages about this project! It’s a big work in progress, and there will definitely be some mess-ups on my part, but my hope is that we can all enjoy some more of Quest. It’s pretty awesome. – koko♥

Chapter 4: Sponse Part 1
TL: As we all know and love, occasionally Tsukiyama throws in English or French words when he’s talking. Anything he says that’s written in Roman letters in the original Japanese text, I will both italicize and underline. All other emphatic markings only for conveying their own regular emphasis.

   “Alright, now take a picture, of me!”
   “Nahh,” Hori replied, and the conversation was over in 3 seconds. She was watching through the coffee shop’s big windows at the shopping street where people came and went, housewives buying things for dinner and hoisting bulky eco-bags on their shoulders.
   Hori looked like an uncomfortable elementary school student in the chic and relaxed coffee shop where she sat. However, inside, she was already at the level of a college student. Well, actually, she almost never went to college, as she roamed from east to west as a “free camera-man” with her camera, her one hobby, always by her side.

Words from Lilith, the Dark Moon

Inspired by a conversation with @wizkhalibra

Lilith in Aries:
