considering their stances

“Part of me always knew you’d come back.”

I feel like I’m in the minority of Dean/Cas fans when it comes to that cut line from 7x17, because I’m actually insanely relieved that it was cut from the episode. (And I know there’s some controversy surrounding this scene due to some… er… comments from some certain people playing certain characters, but that line in particular just does NOT sound like Dean to me.)

I’m not saying that Dean would say something like that, but I don’t think he’d use those exact words to express the sentiment he’s trying to convey.

I feel like he would be much more stilted and awkward, like:


“I dunno, man, I guess I kept the coat ‘cuz my gut said you’d need it”

or

“Every time I thought about tossing it something told me I shouldn’t”

or

“Dammit Cas, I just couldn’t get rid of it, okay?”


So… I dunno. I think they partially made the right call. Relief that the line was cut, but disappointed it wasn’t replaced with something more Dean-like. It is apparent that Dean had that feeling, and it’d be nice to have seen that actually expressed in the final version.

You should write the balcony sex!!

“Magnus, what if someone sees?” Alec was trying very hard to breathe, but that was proving to be difficult. “What if Jace–ahh!” his hand flew into Magnus’ hair stopping him from moving anymore. Alec’s legs were shaking violently, as he tried to keep his head on straight. 

Although, considering their stance right now, that was proving to be very difficult. 

Magnus was on his knees while Alec leaned against the railing of the balcony, his free hand struggling to keep a steady hold on that while his other shook in Magnus’ hair. His pants were barely down, just enough to free his erection that  Magnus had so expertly taken into his mouth. 

“Let them see,” Magnus looked up at Alec with his cat eyes, and Alec almost whimpered. “It’ll teach them a lesson, always walking in without knocking.”

“Jesus.” Alec breathed.

With NRA rolling over on bump fire stocks; I think it’s time we took action against them.

If you have an NRA membership, even a life membership, contact them and ask for a refund. Do not merely cancel, ask for a full refund, and cite that they are not working to protect your gun rights. 

On social media, contact their personalities, such as @colionnoir, and ask them for a statement. I’m especially curious as to Colion’s stance, considering he has previously suggested/implied that these kinds of backpedal moves are how we lose rights, in previous videos on his channel. 

Spread the word on other sites. 

Now is the time to hit hard, and make a stand. This is not compromise, this is erosion of an already eroded right.

Spending the evening on the phone arguing with your parents got you nothing but a headache and a heavy dose of guilt. Everything was done “out of concern” and because “someone needs to make sure you keep your head on straight” but you knew it was really to keep an eye on you and make sure you weren’t doing anything to sour the deal with Benny’s family. Benny kept fairly quiet during the whole evening, sometimes offering you sympathetic looks, other times expressing his agreement with your parent’s concerns. At the end of it all, when your battle was lost, he softly bid you goodnight, unable to hide the hurt written all over his face as he retreated to the guest room.

since i refuse to let this go we should talk about equal play, equal pay without constantly using the loses of the men as a catalyst. what i mean by that is we (uswnt fans) only start a large fire for this topic is when said event occurs (usmnt loss).we promote our stand on this issue through their losses heavily and although valid it is, however, unfair.

valid because the men flop way more than the woman. this is a true statement. sorry.

unfair because you’re pulling down the men to lift the other up. you can shame them but using it to support an argument is once again unfair. you gotta consider both sides as this is one nation, one team.

just simply approach with the facts of the uneven pay for results. nothing more nothing less. ( the men get x while the women only get y. see how simple? bringing in the usmnt losses is unneeded)

however, aruguing for more support from the usmnt for the uswnt equal pay, equal play is valid and fair.

valid because most, with the exception of a few, of the usmnt members have not made comments on or have deflected the topic. I have no idea where most of the men’s players stand on this and if they do have a stance it’s pretty weak and inconsistent.

fair because this is how you get things going. seeing support from both sides is how you get changes to occur within the ussf. nothing is going to change if we make this exclusive. all we want is equal pay for our woman who do the same thing as the men.

so uswnt, shut the fuck up about how bad the usmnt is. we get it they suck, no need to rub it in. i know some of you don’t mean to do it but this is what tRigGErs people. the fans of the usmnt are going through a mourning phase, let them die in peace.

usmnt? you need to COMMUNICATE politely. we have every right to talk about this issue and you guys seem to think that too. what you guys don’t like is how we go about doing it and why we are doing ot after a huge loss.

to sum it all up, we (uswnt AND usmnt) need to figure out a civilized way to talk too each other about this issue (note: I didn’t say talk about the teams because this is a ussoccer problem not who is better. talk about team problems in respective fandoms). don’t call each other white racist, fucks, or any negative thing because guess what? we are the same even if it doesn’t feel like it.

this is our nation, our team. stand behind it or…get off my lawn.

Yo, if you really want to unfollow me because I advocate for punching people who see other races as lesser or not even human you go on ahead, but I stand by what I said. White supracy shouldn’t be considered a political stance. This is the last post I’ll make talking about this. Any asks sent to me about this will be deleted because I don’t want to let this drag on forever.

I've never read any X-men comics, but Cyclops and Gambit are my favorite from the cartoon that used to air back in the 90s. Which leads to my question...what was Cyclops right about?

In it’s most basic form, it refers to whose side a person chose during the war between the X-Men & Avengers. This was a Marvel Comics event that took place in 2012, and set the stage for the current dynamic (Marvel NOW era) of the universe.

The face-off between Steve Rogers and Scott Summers, didn’t magically will itself into existence. It was the culmination of almost a decade’s worth of stories. The Marvel Universe is a grand tapestry of wonder. Individual, but interconnected pieces, each playing a role in the design of this epic. In order to properly understand the conflict between these two men, you need to understand the world that led them to that moment in time.

Maybe if you could respect that people have different viewpoints and stay in your own lane you wouldn't be so angry and would enjoy social media again. Just a suggestion. I'll probably unfollow anyway.

Please do because if getting out of my LANE means saying Nazis are bad and that people need to just let the fact that the confederacy lost the war a hundred and fifty years ago the fuck go then strap in cause I’m not even using a blinker

I Am Livid

So, I’ve been off XIV for a few days, RL’s been rough, etc etc, blah blah blah. Life happens, we all get it. To be honest though, the thing draining my muse lately has been something very personal that has today boiled over in the absolute worst of ways.

I’m going to be losing my veneer of reasonability and friendliness here. I promise you, how I am about to sound is not how I normally react but this is a situation I hope and trust people can understand, perhaps relate to. If you want to avoid drama and want to keep out of a personal rant, please avoid reading past the cut.

West Memphis Three

It’s official. I’m no longer on the fence. I truly 100% believe the West Memphis Three are guilty.

I’ve read the case archive. I’ve pored over hundreds of documents, files, pictures, and testimonies. I’ve watched four documentaries, I’ve watched dozens of interviews, I’ve read five books. And still it leads to one conclusion: Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley murdered those three boys. This isn’t an “opinion”; I assert as an indisputable fact that the West Memphis Three are guilty, and I reached this conclusion over two years of intense research. 

Am I a professional? No. Do I have degrees in criminology or forensics?  No. Do I have experience in law enforcement?  No. I freely admit I am not “qualified” to deem the WM3 guilty. No camera crew would ever contact me to give my testimony on camera. But that doesn’t change the fact a huge amount of evidence points to the guilt of the WM3. 

Over the next week or so I will write a series of posts that present evidence that the WM3 are guilty.  I’ve made such posts before, but these posts will include links to the case file and source details. They will be long and exhaustive, but I ask my followers to please read them in full, even if you think the WM3 are innocent. 90% of the case evidence has never seen the light of day on a public platform: I intend to make that information available to you so you can decide for yourself. Forget what the documentaries have told you - see the evidence for yourself.

to the anon that asked me to provide links to the case files : I will do so. I will provide evidence for my stance and justify my belief that the WM3 are guilty. Please be patient; the case file is huge and it will take me some time to collect the relevant information and write about it. I have over 500 pages of documents to search through, hence why I need a few days. But rest assured I WILL do this.

if you have any questions or you want to put in your two cents, PLEASE message me! I will consider all stances and opinions. If you believe the Wset Memphis Three Are innocent, you are welcome to approach me wit any evidence that supports your stance. I will make a genuine attempt to listen and be impartial. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this 💕

These days “It is good to have own opinion” completely detached from its original meaning and became an anti-intellectual phrase.

In the past, having own opinion meant logically deriving conclusions through personal or other people’s observations despite what the society says about the truth. It meant breaking away from doxa, making an argued stance on a topic and not believing in something for the sake of believing in it.

Nowadays, it means that no one should be able to attack your opinion, because, after all, “it is good to have own opinion”, regardless of whether it is logically properly derived, if it takes as many premises as possible into the account and, well, if it has any arguments behind it at all. It has become a sentence people use in order not to change own attitude regardless of clearly losing an argument. Opinions started being valued for the sake of existing, not for the sake of breaking away from attitudes that lack proper argumentation behind them.

Phrases “free speech” and “everyone’s opinion should be considered” have also become anti-intellectual.

People abuse their “right to free speech” in order to express stances that aren’t argued and then additionally protect them with “having own opinion being good”. Right to free speech wasn’t made so that you could simply say whatever you want for the sake of it, that was not the idea behind it (although it did enable you to do it). The initial idea was that a person could share an argued stance on a topic without a fear of being persecuted. Free speech did not mean that no one can attack your stance.

Considering everyone’s opinion also wasn’t meant for considering opinions that exist for the sake of existing. It was meant to allow people to share argued stances and not be dismissed just because someone else doesn’t like their opinion regardless of how well-argued it is. Nowadays, people dismiss other people’s arguments just because they don’t want to change their own opinion, yet they expect their own opinion to be considered by everyone else.

Crossing The Line

This is a kastle (the punisher) au, and I’d like to thank @anakins-skywalkr for the idea! It isn’t great, and I’m shit at action scenes apparently lol But I hope y’all like it. Also thanks to @austennerdita2533 for all the help. I’d have liked to start of the au week on a stronger note but wtv lol

Crossing The Line

There was some ambiguity to his ways.

Caroline hadn’t been able to see the world as black and white for a long time now, it was a mess of complicated greys; even if his actions were considered monstrous she somehow understood them - she couldn’t see him as a monster, just as a broken man. A broken man that did shitty things - yes - but that saved lives in his own way. Her journalistic professionalism had certainly been compromised after knowing him and empathizing with him. Killing was wrong, but was it necessary at times?

If he was a monster, was she one as well?

In the midst of a bloody aftermath her feelings wavered; her convictions trembled at the sight of splattered brains on the floor, and blood on her face. It hadn’t been the first time she pulled the trigger, but hopefully it would be the last. Protecting herself like this came at a high price, - not because of the guilt, but the lack of it - she felt wrong in her own skin.

How would the 2p!s (Canada America Francios Zao Luciano Oliver) react that their S/o can't have any children

2p Canada:

-He’s fine with it. He’d never really wanted kids, since he’s afraid of being a terrible father, so hearing that you can’t have them is honestly a bit of a relief. Still, if you want to adopt kids, he’ll support your decision.

2p America:

-He’s a bit crestfallen, but quickly tells you that the two of you can just adopt if you want kids. The important thing is having a family, whether or not the child(ren) are biologically yours.

2p France:

-Good. He feels like he screwed up when he was raising Canada, so he’s more than okay with the fact that you can’t bear children. If you’re adamant about adopting a child, then he’ll reluctantly go along with it.

2p China:

-He’s relieved. He doesn’t want children, so knowing that you can’t give him kids makes him pretty happy. If you want to adopt he’ll actually try to talk you out of it.

2p Italy:

-He’s never really thought about having children, so he’s not sure how to feel about it. He decides it’s best to just not think about it. When it comes to adoption, he’ll really have to consider his stance on children before he’s able to tell you what he wants. But if having a little rascal or two running around makes you happy, then he’ll acquiesce and let you adopt.

2p England:

-Unsurprisingly, he’s a touch upset, but he doesn’t let you see that. He really wanted to have a family with you. He brightens up when he realizes that adoption is an answer to the problem, and will bring it up to you. But if that’s not what you want, he’ll accept your decision, since your happiness is more important.

None of them will think any less of you for not being able to have children. They love you, not your ability to have babies. 

Possible Altean Lance.

I love the AU where Lance it’s half or totally Altean (maybe bc he’ll fit perfectly with half-galra Keith) so I was thinking about Voltron season 3 last night and found out that now it could be possible a half-altean Lance.
You know in S3E4 ‘Hole in the sky’. They found out that there are other realities and the travel through realities it’s possible, during that episode also we discovered that in every reality exist princess allura and every one.

But in some cases (like Shiro’s doppelgänger Sven) they have different important qualities. So we know that in S3E7 ‘The legend begins’ due exposure to the rift and the quintessence Honerva changes, so I considered the possibility that the stance of the paladins in Altean dictatorship reality, could somehow also change some of their qualities.
I made a research and in some theories, when someone goes through another reality in which their doppelgänger, isn’t alive or don’t exist there are two possible endings. First possible ending it’s breaking the balance of that reality and causing a domino effect of caos events, and second possible ending it’s acquiring the qualities of the missing or inexistent doppelgänger to replace it. So if in Altean dictatorship reality Lance’s doppelgänger was supposed to be an Altean, and he died or didn’t exist, Lance could possibly acquire his characteristics as Altean before returning to Voltron reality.

Even if the possibilities of Lance’s Altean doppelgänger are few, it’s totally possible.

And if it occurs I want that Lance and the rest of the team members discovers it in a funny and unexpected situation like:

“All the paladins assist a emergency call from Armin, once they defeated Lotor, Allura was talking to the leader, pidge was asking some alchemists about their endless life elixir, hunk was trying local burritos of dinosaur meat and Lance was talking with a Arminer kid while Keith watch them closely (kinda saying aww cute Lance, okno but..).

Lance: I like your green eyes
Arminer kid: Thank you! I like your eyes too.
Lance: I like your rainbow coloured hair (while he says that, he pass a hand through his hair and suddenly without Lance realising it, his hair starts turning on different colors.)
Arminer kid: wooah! You know look just like me.
Lance: What.
Keith realises Lance’s change and yells.
Keith: LANCE! WHAT THE HECK YOU HAVE DONE TO YOUR HAIR?!
Everyone turns around to see what’s going on.
And Lance goes more confused and every one it’s surprised and then he changes back and says again.
Lance: What

anonymous asked:

When you say you ship Cockles, does that mean you believe they are actually in a relationship together with their wives blessing? Or do you wish that they are and you're just hoping for the best? Just curious, personally I believe they are together. We've just seen so much convincing evidence throughout the years to believe otherwise.

So, I can’t say that I am 100% sure that they’re together romantically … it seems like they are; and considering Misha’s and Vicki’s stance on polyamory and how Danneel has said she feels like people can be open in committed relationships, then I don’t think the wives would object if their husbands were involved.

So basically, with how those two act, I would not be surprised if they are in a relationship; but if I died, went and faced God directly, and was told that: no, they were only weirdly close friends, then I would not be disappointed, because their friendship is beautiful and I am just so happy that they have each other.
