anonymous asked:

What do you have against Bex? (Can u also provide evidence thanks 💜)

When I first got this ask, I was tempted to play it off as a joke and say “the fact she exists,” and leave it at that. But I feel like it’s important to stay informed. And if you genuinely don’t know, I’ll give you the complete rundown. It’s long, it’s messy, and it’s nasty, so bear with me.

First, and introduction. When I talk about Bex, I’m referring to the actress Bex Taylor-Klaus, who is the voice actor (or VA) of the character Pidge in the show Voltron Legendary Defender on Netflix.

It all began a while ago when Bex liked a comment of a picture. The picture involved a ship called Shei//th. I censored the name so it doesn’t show up in the tags of that on tumblr. But essentially it’s a ship between two characters, Takashi Shirogane, a 25 year old pilot who is the leader of the team, and Keith Kogane, one of the other “paladins” or fighters on the team. People like me find this ship to be distasteful, since Shiro is an adult, and the others are teens (it’s actually a bit messier than that, since an official Voltron source listed Keith as 18, but the producers of the show, Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos, said they were not consulted on the book so there’s some question as to whether it’s canon or not). Either way, the consensus by most reasonable people is that it’s probably not a healthy thing to depict in children’s media, when you consider the considerable age difference, the power imbalance (leader, senior officer with someone they are in charge of), and finally, the iconic line by the character of Keith himself when he defines their relationship as a familial one.

Nonetheless, the ship persists, as nasty things on tumblr are wont to do. There’s a lot of shipping discourse on tumblr between two distinct groups which can be labelled as “antis”–people who are not in favor of any Shiro/paladin ships, or what has become to be known as “shaladins”–people who ship any variation of Shiro with the paladins.

Here is where Bex got involved. On Instagram there was a picture of a black shoe and a red shoe together and the joke was about the shoes being a prophecy that Shei//th would be canon. A joke, mostly, considering all the evidence above. But here’s where Bex got herself in trouble. She liked a comment on the picture where someone said “Keith is a power bottom confirmed.”

Obviously, this caused a bit of an uproar within the fanbase, especially between the discourse between antis and shaladins. Shaladins were celebrating that an Official Voltron Source liked their ship, and antis were angry about that acknowledgement of the ship at all by official sources, and the sexualization of a kid’s show (more on this later.)

So of course this sparked the discourse on tumblr. One user, @lancehunks, who was receiving asks about Bex, tagged her in the replies.They were definitely unfavorable. 

and 

and a few more. 

Bex, being the big strong, adult, woman she is, decided that she could not take this obviously grievous insult to her name [sarcasm], and decided to reblog them all and respond to them. Keep in mind, that @lancehunks was just 13 years old. And Bex (22) decided that these were appropriate responses:

Yep, you read that right. Not only an adult but employed on a kid’s show! To a 13 year old! The target audience of the very show she’s a part of! (Oh, the hypocrisy). But wait, there’s more:

Just in case you’re confused, let me tell you the many, many reasons why this is unacceptable. 

  1.  Bex is an adult. You’d think she’d be a little more mature by now just in general. It’s the internet and there are trolls.
  2. The person she was addressing was 13!!!! Do I think it was mature to tag Bex in all those posts? No. But it’s… behavior that you can expect from 13 year old’s on the internet. If we swore at and tore down every single one of them every time they did something dumb, we would need a lot more therapists for teens in the world. Plus it’s really disingenuous to pretend that we wouldn’t have done something similar when we were younger if we were in that position.
  3. Bex is famous. While she’s certainly not on the caliber of massive A-List stars like Tom Holland or Zendaya, she has a fanbase that exceeds the normal person’s friend group. Just because she’s been on TV before, she has groupies that will support her no matter what, who will troll for her, who uncritically and unconditionally worship her. I’m not a Bex fan, nor do I really care to know her well enough to know just exactly how many fans she has, to be certain she does have them. When she publicly reblogged those words, that “motherfucker,” those fighting words, she weaponized her fanbase. What I mean when I say that is her behavior gave her groupies permission to behave the same way. By targeting someone who didn’t like her (a thirteen year old!!!!!), she opened the gates to her fans and groupies doing the same thing, to a kid.

This lead to some terrible things happening. The 13 year old was getting death threats, sexual violence threats, and nsfw content, all because Bex just couldn’t let it go. 

What does this mean? Finish it? Finish the kid? If you’re so sick of the fighting, then why did you even respond in the first place? Bex is the one who escalated the situation. Bex is the one who caused the fighting in the first place (by that I mean the fighting between the two that night, the fighting between antis and shaladins has been going on for as long as the show).

There we go. Now he have something resembling dignity. But unfortunately the damage was done, and user @lancehunks deleted their blog. As a direct response to Bex’s actions. Bex caused a 13 year old to leave tumblr. 

When hearing this news, Bex offered a half-assed apology:

This is the most insincere apology I have ever seen. “The internet has Bad things on it and it’s YOUR fault for seeing them” is not an apology. The best part is that she’s a big fat hypocrite. “Sometimes, when it’s harmless, the best thing I can do is shake my head and keep scrolling.” So why didn’t you Bex? Why didn’t you keep scrolling instead of targeting a 13 year old?

In light of recent political events, though there’s one thing that stands out to me: 

Sound like anybody you know? The esteemed President, perhaps?

*disclaimer* I am in no way claiming that Bex is a Trump supporter. I don’t know enough about her–and I don’t want to know enough about her–to know where she leans politically. I’m just drawing the attention to the similarities in moral equivalency going on, here.*

Sure you targeted a 13 year old and weaponized your fanbase, but someone tagging you in a snarky post is just as bad, right? (Wrong.)

You’d think that would be the end. You’d think that Bex would be capable of living and learning, or maybe even just taking her own advice, and keep scrolling. But here we go again.

The next bit of drama started when the possibly canon guide book was released, stating Keith’s age as 18. There was a big celebration on the shaladin side because technically, that would make it “legal” for Keith and Shiro to have sex. Besides the fact that legal  ≠ moral, again, Voltron is a kid’s show. But on tumblr this time, Bex posted this.

This time, the discourse surrounding Bex was a little different., This time, the discourse mostly focused on the fact that even if Shiro and Keith disregarded canon and morals and the fact that it’s a kid’s show ever did get in a relationship, the only thing that matters is how they like to have sex.

This is a problem for a lot of reasons. There’s a culture, pretty prominent on tumblr of women, mostly white, who are obsessed with gay sex. They write fanfiction and p*rn solely for their own personal gratification. This, of course, is a gross misinterpretation to wanting LGBT+ representation. If you aren’t a mlm (an acronym for men-loving-man, that includes many sexualities) then writing p*rn about is sexualizing them, using them as a tool to get yourself off, and not like complex human people. Mlm are more than how they like to have sex. In fact, that shouldn’t be a part of a discussion for anybody except between willing partners. This also feeds into the popular and damaging stereotype that gay men are predatory by nature.

So, as a whole, not good. 

And again, we have a whole situation escalated by Bex. The worst part is, to people who tried to explain this to her, the only response they were given was a gif:

So once again, a minor dared to express their distaste for Bex on tumblr. But this time, they didn’t tag her. This time, they censored her name. But Bex found it anyway. And she decided to do the exact same thing that led to a minor leaving the website, and to stop watching the show. 

Have no fear, this time though. This time, Bex is going after a 14 year old, at least she’s not going after kids anymore, right? [sarcasm]

Some final notes. 

Bex claims to be an LGBT+ rights activist. I’m also pretty sure she’s a lesbian herself (again, I already know too much about her, I’m not looking to get to know her better.) So, you’d think, as someone who wants equality for LGBT+ people and communities, she’d have the wherewithal to listen to specific subsets of that group when they say something about themselves, like, for example, young mlm who don’t appreciate being sexualized by a white woman. So I couldn’t help but laugh out loud when I saw this on her blog:

Now, I happen to agree with the above statement, but it’s so ironic, so hypocritical that Bex is talking about the sexualization of anything. Because kid’s shows aren’t safe from her sexualization and mlm certainly aren’t. How can one person be so incredibly oblivious? A mystery that I don’t have any interest in solving. 

I also want to address something a little more devious and a little more dark. I personally know of at least 12 different people who sent Bex asks, politely explaining some of the things I’ve talked about here, or relaying how her words hurt them personally. Bex never answered any of them. But she did answer this:

Just to be perfectly clear, I do not condone or encourage hatemail. Do not send people anything wishing them death or harm in any way. I have never sent nor do plan on sending hatemail, and you should be ashamed of yourself if you do.

However, this is incredibly nefarious. Bex doesn’t answer any of the many asks she got that were polite, but proved her wrong. She didn’t answer any of the young mlm who gave her their personal stories and who weren’t anonymous. Instead, she publishes this. And she did this on purpose, to make her look innocent, to make her look like she’s the one being attacked. I get hatemail every single day too. Things along similar lines to this. I block the user. Delete them, One, because I don’t want to expose my followers to that kind of negativity on a daily basis, two, a mature person knows that deleting them is the best kind of revenge because the user will be constantly looking for a response and they will know they had no effect on me and three, because if you do that, eventually they stop. This is intentional on Bex’s part to make the people who don’t like her look bad. I don’t like Bex at all, and I certainly do not support that message. Any reasonable person wouldn’t. Also the fact that it’s an anonymous message adds a certain air of doubt as to who sent it. 

The point is, Bex is purposely ignoring polite and well-meaning people and posted this to “prove” she’s the one on the “good” side because no good person would send that message.

This is also worth noting: 

This was posted after the lancehunks debate but before the power bottom comment she made. In this post, Bex admits that a relationship between Shiro and any of the paladins is predatory in nature. She said that. Her words. And then after that she said that Keith was a power bottom. 

The last thing I want to say, is that Voltron is a kid’s show. It’s rated US-TV-Y7. Which means for years 7 and older. Regardless of the ship, there should be no sexual content, be it fanart, of fanfiction of Voltron characters at all. We are all collectively responsible for keeping content age-appropriate for the target audience. So, stop it. All and any ships. 

For minors, this is my advice to you:
Bex is a predator, a hypocrite, and a liar. Do not engage with her. Block her. Do not tag her in any of your posts. She has a history of targeting minors. Protect yourself. Do not engage.

I took your family? Who do you think had more taken from them, when you shot 20 ccs of liquid dream killer into my daughter? She was Ricks’ daughter, Jerry. She had OPTIONS! That all ended because she felt sorry for you. You act like prey but you’re a predator! You use pity to lure in your victims—that’s how you survive. I survive because I know everything. That snake survives because children wander off, And you survive because people think, ‘oh this poor piece of shit, he never gets a break. I can’t stand the deafening silent wails of his wilting soul. I guess I’ll hire him or marry him.’

Yo but seriously this is like mega important because first of all, Daenerys Targaryen, you know, the QUEEN, the unburnt, the mother of dragons, breaker of chains, the one who can glare you down like the queen she freakin’ is, DAENERYS TARGARYEN, STORMBORN, THE MOTHER FLIPPIN’ QUEEN, was sitting there. By herself. Next to Jon Snow’s bed, with no one around like - JUST HER. Waiting. Sitting. Watching out for Jon.

Like, does everyone else know that she’s there? Tyrion, Missandei, Jorah, Ser Davos? Yeah, let’s just let the queen watch out for the sick and injured King in the North. It’s not like she’s a queen and has better things to do like plan their next move or whatever.

But nope. Dany chose to stay there, to grieve there next to Jon for the child that she just lost, knowing that at the very least, she gained him, alive, breathing, ready to wake up at any moment so she can tell him that she will fight with him. Together. To avenge Viserion, and to destroy the evil that is the Night King and his army.

Daenerys Targaryen is the queen they don’t deserve.

I cant even watch this scene anymore. When i hear Dany’s slow breathing i choke up. She is so silent. She probably wants to scream, cry, fight for her baby. But that’s not who she is, and she knows that she had to leave him behind to save everyone else.
People are complaining about her ‘lack of emotion’ but Dany was never one for hysterics. Bursting into tears and screaming would of been so out of character.
Emilia did amazing with this scene. She was cold and frozen, but all you need to do is look into Dany’s eyes and you can see how distraught she is.
Daenerys will show anger before sadness, that’s who she is. “We will destroy the Night King and his army.” For Viserion.
For her child.

I can’t wrap my head around how young Waverly actually is. Like, she’s 21, that’s a year older than me and she’s already going through so much with Wynonna and the demons and everything and she’s in a very new relationship with a woman (who’s probably 3 years older than her, I think). I don’t know, for me, it’s so understandable that she can’t do everything right all the time. When you’re young, you make stupid mistakes. I could never do the things she does and that’s really admirable. It makes everything so much more relatable.

anonymous asked:

hello, sorry to bother you but I have a question, do you think TS6 will be her coming out album? I mean, she already has "I don't give a damm about what you say" album and if the fandom is right about the fact that she will be reborn, like the snake that he come as new when shed it's skin or the eclipse, then shouldn't this be a coming out? revealing who she is? then again, it could do some real damage to her career. what do you think?

I never want to come across as a Debbie downer, but I strongly doubt it. Could she return to a more casual glass closet/ hinting attitude? Perhaps. Will she fully come out with the album? Strongly doubt it. I would love to be proved wrong but I just don’t know if she is in a spot right now in her career where she would take that risk (though I believe it would do nothing but benefit her in the long run). She is still quite reserved about it and we just recently saw the resurgence of Joshlie with that article a few days ago, meaning the bearding will most likely continue with this era. There will most definitely be references to Kaylor events (of course overshadowed by the copycat events with Calcium and almost Bond) and wordplay hinting at it, but I would doubt anything direct. 

Part of me wonders if she will come out now that the sexual assault trial is over, but I still am extremely doubtful. Especially in our political climate right now, it would be a huge risk. Again, if she proves me wrong, I would be ecstatic, but I am really on the fence.

(Y/n) had been in the library studying for a potions test. It was her worst subject and she really needed to get a passing grade. It was late, and she knew that wandering about the castle after hours was not a good idea, but nothing could prepare her for what would happen next. She had finished studying, there wasn’t much more she could do other than get a good nights rest. She started making her way back to her common room. She had made it about half way there when a figure came out from around the corner, grabbing her arm and pushing her into a nearby classroom. The classroom was empty, with the exception of a few tables and chairs, (Y/n) had never been there before. She looked up at her attacker and recognized her as a Slytherin who just really hated her. After closing the door, the girl walked over to (Y/n) with a wicked smirk on her face, she pulled out her wand, and (Y/n)’s face paled. She knew that it was going to be a long night. The girl’s first spell was a direct hit to (Y/n)’s stomach, causing her to cry out in pain. She scrambled to get away, hiding behind a table on the far corner of the room, but the girl was relentless, her next spell hitting the table, causing it to fall on (Y/n). Draco had been walking past the classroom when he heard the crash of the table, then soon after a scream of pain. He walked over to the door and put his ear to it. He found it strange that any noise would be coming from the room since nobody had ever used the classroom. He listened for a moment, before hearing another cry of pain. He quickly opened the door to see (Y/n) laying on the ground with the Slytherin girl standing over her with her want drawn. The girl looked at Draco, shocked, she dropped her wand, claiming,
“She attacked me first! I was just defending myself!”
Draco looked at the scene in front of him, something seemed off, he knew that (Y/n) would never hurt anyone purposefully, and she also did not have her want drawn. He made his way over to (Y/n), helping her up, and started taking her from the room. But before he left, he looked over his shoulder at the girl,
“Professor Snape will be hearing about this”
With that, he left the girl standing, shocked, in the middle of the room. Draco guided (Y/n) to the outside of her common room. He could tell she was in shock,
“Are you hurt anywhere?”
(Y/n) just shook her head, unable to find her voice. Draco frowned at her, he put his hand on her cheek, trying to get her to look at him. When she finally did, he leaned down and kissed her. She didn’t respond right away, but she soon did, melting into his embrace. When he pulled away, he placed his forehead on hers, and whispered,
“I’ll always save you”

“Been near Little Garden, have we?” 

Peering up at the female, Riskua startles at the very old face attached to that exceptionally young body, doing her very best not to stare. 

But it’s such an evident difference. 

“I- yes, how did you know?” 

Peeling Luffy off of her lap (or attempting to at the very least), Riskua turns herself on the bed until she can better see the duo of doctors, accepting Luffy’s stubborn hug without so much as a flinch. 

Chopper’s black eyes are wide, staring out from behind the woman’s legs, bright as he stares at Luffy’s stretchy limbs. Luffy who- who stares right back. 

“No, Luffy. He’s intelligent.” Chopper isn’t for eating, no matter how much drool Luffy is leaking onto her shoulder. 

“But-” 

“No.”

Celebration of Night Warrior’s Embrace

By Risri Elthron

Kaldorei and their allies gathered together in Tel’anor Sunday evening to celebrate the eclipse of the White Lady over the Sun. Various individuals spoke on their experiences, on Kaldorei history and on the event those gathered were about to witness. Each person present was able to construct a lantern by adding a piece during each speaker’s part. At the end hundreds of laterns were released into the sky toward the moon to honor Elune.

Priestess Roraelis was the host for the evening directing those entering the pavilion to gather supplies as they took their seats. “Today’s ritual to honor the Night Warrior will involve each of you to construct a lantern alongside our speakers. As you do, I encourage you to think of those who you have lost, those who have fallen in battle, those who have given their lives so we may live to see another day.”

She opened the event with quiet words that resonated throughout the crowd gathered. “Many know of the celestial event known as the Embrace, in which the White Lady and Blue Child appear in rare conjunction in our skies every four hundred and thirty years. But a more common event is the Eclipse, a time when the Night Warrior obscures the sun, cloaking daytime in night, and bringing our dead to rest in the sky beside her. Many of us witnessed such an event last year, when she appeared to carry the fallen form of the Dreamer into the heavens. To physically /see/ her lift such a spirit aloft in the sky is truly an honor, and one that words can often fail to describe. Tonight, we are honored to watch our Night Warrior in this Eclipse once more, to behold her beauty and power even in harsh daylight. In her light we will honor her duties, and those we have lost that now reside beside her in the heavens. We honor her in this ritual, and in the speakers that represent each aspect of the Night Warrior’s children- The Fallen who gave all, The Sentinel who protects, the Druid that balances, and the Priestess who guides. Please give them your respect and attention.”

The Death Knight Xaesha stepped forward then, as the embodiment of The Fallen who gave all. Her words spoke of those who have sacrificed so that others might not have to do so. “From the War of the Ancients, to the Third War, and even now, our people have fought to keep Azeroth from the Legion’s grasp. We have lost so much in this time, we have seen our homes swallowed by the waves, our loved ones slain, and perhaps worst of all, those we cared about corrupted and turned against us. But we have always remained strong.” She spoke of the Kaldorei’s firm believe in Elune and the power she grants us. “We are the Night Warrior’s children, and she has given us the strength we have needed to carry on. Every one of us who falls defending what we hold dear is taken into her embrace. Those who are corrupted are given a chance at redemption, and those who corrupt our homes are made to pay with a pound of their flesh.” Elune as the Night Warrior is what every warrior strives to be, “She is merciless to her enemies, for she represents the savagery in our hearts. The ferocity that each of us feel when we see our homes tainted…But most importantly, she represents something that many of us forget. She represents the love we feel for our comrades. She -never- abandons her children, no matter what taints them. Be it sickness, fel magic, or the nightmare, she continues to love us all so long as we seek her favor. And she proved this when Ysera, corrupted by the foul energies of the Nightmare, was purified, and laid to rest.” With those words, the Death Knight instructed those gathered to add the rice cake to their lanterns, “The purpose of this is to nourish the dead, but it is not the cake itself that nourishes them. It is a sign that we remember them. We honor their memory. We still love them…And we will avenge those who were taken from us.”

Former Sentinel, Priestess Merethyl Amrallatha representing all those who protect in the name of Elune, “For ten thousand years, the Night Elves and their allies have defended Kalimdor, risking everything—humility, sanity, livelihood—to see our villagers safe and smiling instead of cowering in fear as they are forced to leave their homes, in flames, behind. In war, we must make difficult choices every single day. Many times, even the right choice has its price, and even after making landfall in the Broken Isles, we all have lost something dear to us. None of us are strangers to sacrifice. We pledged to be heartened by the price paid by our fallen heroes, so that we could live on and not to let their deaths terrorize us. As they cross over to join Elune, we pick up their torch. Their legacy is not lost; their lives are not wasted.” She turned to her owl, searched it for a feather about to molt, and collected one. Feather in hand she tied it to the lantern’s chime. “As long as we remember, as long as we venerate them, our honored dead, they have not left us. In our hearts and minds always, just as is the case with Elune, we must never forget that our togetherness with those who have passed is eternal.” Her attendant then passed out rice sake to the crowd. “Please, drink, and briefly contemplate with me their journey into the stars. Just as we tie the feather to the chime, the great owl spirit gives wings to the brave and guides them to the heavens. With a belly full of sake, we feel for but a moment the bliss that our heroes feel as they embark on their last journey to collect their just reward: an eternity at rest in the arms of the Goddess.”

Druids and balance are synonymous, to represent them Lyenna and Noelina came forward to speak of Ysera, Cenarius and the Emerald Dream. Lyenna spoke first, “Elune sent us her son, Cenarius, raised by Ysera in the Emerald Dream, to teach us the ways of nature; the cycle of life and death in all things.Just as the moon’s cycle through their phases, so too must all things come to an end, that new beginnings may emerge. Tonight, we prepare for Elune to eclipse An'she, shrouding Azeroth in Her shadow and Her love, and reminding us of those who have fallen.”

Noelina stepped forward next, “Who are the dreamed, and who is the Dreamer? I did not know her as well as probably most of you. In the short years I worked with her Flight, I came to respect, honor, and love Ysera as not only a stalwart ally, and a wise mentor, but also as a friend. Many mortals… have come to forget what the Dragonflights have done for us. They do not remember the countless sacrifices dragonkind have made for all of Azeroth. Ysera’s is possibly the single greatest in all of history. We will not forget. She lives on forever in the sky…In our memory… In our hearts… And in our dreams…now, she is the Dreamed, and we are the dreamers. Ysera, Dreamer, patient and wise… You’ve earned your place upon the skies… Among the stars and pale moonrise… We yearn to gaze into your eyes. We who dreamed with you, We mortals who love you, Now will dream for you, And forever dream of you.” She began to sing then, “♪ When the cold of winter comes ~ Starry night will cover day ~ In the veiling of the sun ~ We will walk in bitter rain ~ But in dreams ~ But in dreams ~ I can hear you name ~ And in dreams ~ And in dreams ~ We will meet again. ♫” As the woman sang, Lyenna sent a faintly glowing green mist swirling through the crowd.  When it touched each lantern, miniature moonpetal lilies sprouted along the lanterns’ viny struts.

The last speaker of the ritual was Priestess Elliistra Thera’dorei. She greeted the crowd and spoke of the origin of the Kaldorei, “A long, long time ago, a wandering tribe happened upon a pool of great power. Exploring these waters, a powerful yet invisible entity sought to befriend them. Seeing how this was beyond anything they’ve ever known, they settled upon its waters. They grew to know the woman who ‘lived’ in this well. As She made herself more known, this small tribe grew in numbers. And they grew more in likeness of this great woman. They began to learn the powers of the arcane, magics not known to any other being on Azeroth at the time. They grew strong and fierce, yet kept to themselves, to live in peace and to worship who they came to know as Elune. As they kept expanding, they were finally discovered. The Gurubashi and Amani troll empires had found these upstarts…and sought to destroy them. What they found were warriors who had never been seen before. Possessing great physical strength, but also devastating magics. The trolls could not stand before them. As their empires were crushed, and they had to bow before the Kaldorei, they went on to possess two thirds of the ancient land of Kalimdor. Their majesty and wisdom spread, as did the glory of the Goddess.”

Throughout history the Kaldorei have been guided by Elune, “From there, the Night Warrior has guided her children through many wars…not only the war to end all wars, but also many others, against the Satyr, against the Qiraji, and also joining the humans to fight the orcs. Throughout our long history, many Kaldorei have not only died, but also been separated from their kin.”

The Priestess spoke then of Argus, “And now…the painful change and growth that the Kaldorei have experienced in such a short time now brings us to why it had to happen. The Night Warrior gathers her army. Three times, the demons of the Burning Legion tried to take this world. Three times, it failed. And now…the Night Warrior mobilizes Her children. It is time for us to march on them. It does not matter who you are…Kaldorei, Highborne, Illidari, Ebon, Shal'dorei. The Night Warrior is all our divine General, and we all must now unite under her banner…the reward? The retaking of a fallen world, and the destruction of a foe that has ripped the cosmos apart. And the past has taught us harsh lessons. It has taught us to hate. To despise. To cast kin away. But no more…now, we unite. As we march upon Argus, remember that we are all under our grand General. The Night Warrior marches ahead of us…what demon will stand in our way?”

With a cry of “Zin'al Elune!” Glory to Elune, the lanterns across the crowd flickered and flared to life, a brilliant pure white light glowing within them with seemingly no source.

Priestess Autumnsong spoke once more, “Zin’al Elune. Blessings, and gratitude to our wonderful speakers. It is through their words, their kindness that our ritual is nearly complete. The Eclipse is nearly upon us- come, let us gather at the precipice and witness the Night Warrior’s beauty.” She directed those gathered to the balcony overlooking much of Suramar city where the White Lady could be seen moving closer to the Sun.

“With these offerings, may we remember and honor our fallen, and set them free into the sky to rest with our Goddess. Their memories are dear to our hearts, and we will never forget their sacrifices. Andu-thoras, mashar’alarion.” With that the Priestess directed all to loose their lanterns to the sky and she began to sing.

“Night Warrior, Night Warrior- Your arrows pierce the night sky, Send terror into the foul, and peace to the fallen souls. Night Warrior, Night Warrior- We pray for a victory, To fight with your viciousness, To protect those we hold dear. Night Warrior, Night Warrior- Be with us in this battle, Guide our Glaives, Bless our arrows, May we enact your justice. Night Warrior, Night Warrior- When we all fall into night, Let us do so in your name, Take our enemies with us, And carry us home on silver wings.”

As the priestess sang, the moon moved before the sun, cloaking the daytime sky in darkness, sending the stars alight across the heavens. The petals on the lanterns begain to fall off, cascading and raining down like drops of moonlight as the glowing lanterns continued their flight, like thousands of stars. As the song ended, the moon moved away from the sun, slowly revealing it’s harsh rays once more. Once daylight had returned the priestess bowed her head, touching her heart, then her forehead. “Goddess, Night Warrior, Mother, thank you for this sight. We praise your love, and thank you for giving our souls a place in your celestial kingdom. Goddess bless and keep you all. Thank you for giving us your time to honor the Night Warrior. Thank you to Xaesha, Merethyl, Lyenna, Nina, and Ellliistra for speaking this day. Go with the Goddess, and serve her word. Zin'al Elune!”

Many thanks to Priestess Roraelis for the evening and sharing the ritual of the Night Warrior’s Embrace with all present.

Hi sweetie, I just found your blog and I fell in love with it immediately! I wanted to ask you something because I think you are someone who can finally answer to this doubt I had since forever: you know that EW photo shooting with Kit and Emilia kissing, WHY WERE THEY KISSING?? I've always seen those pics and never understood why... I LOVE that concept but do you know the reason behind? It was a long time ago, Jonerys wasn't even a thing back then🤔🤔

Hi! thank so much for the sweet words. So glad you like the blog :D 

The photographer said that Kit’s and Emilia’s chemistry was so great that she just asked if they would kiss and they were more than happy to haha. She said, “love was in the air” that day or something along those lines. I LIVE for it :D

anonymous asked:

Yo, what if Acxa was trying to flirt with him one day but like...he inherited his dad's awkwardness and when he finally realized what Axca was doing after she walked away his hair does that anime poof thing. :3c

I’M HERE FOR THIS

smooth, suave lotor who’s always calm and collected and has his way with words suddenly losing his cool, stuttering and not knowing what to say. because of acxa. like father, like son.

but also, i hc that acxa absolutely sucks at both flirting and picking up on hints, because she tends to brush subtle cues off as meaningless. so if lotor approaches her and stands just a little closer than normal, maybe puts his hand on her shoulder, she’d freeze and start acting extra “professional”, all while blushing behind his back. (his hair visibly deflates lmao)

they suck™ please help them

Sophie sometimes i find your tone towards 5h condescending objectively speaking even camila could have possibly hit her peak while in 5h because shes yet to have a worldwide smash hit like work from home or worth it (billions of views, streams) obviously as a celebrity shes rapidly gaining success due to endorsements and visibility but as an artist shes yet to break out commercially so i got offended by ur dismissal of 5h future we cn never predict mayb they end up makin anothr album who knows😐

That’s you projecting you own thoughts and your own tone onto my answers sweets - and again you can’t help yourself, you have to bring Camila into it… Why the need to always compare them? The question was about 5H so I answered talking about 5H! It doesn’t mean that I think Camila would do better than them, she’s probably not gonna do better than WFH either. That song was a fucking hit, most watch video of 2016! It’s gonna be hard to beat that.

I don’t know why you always think I have a mean secret agenda, that I’m being subtly shady or whatever, but truly I’m not sweets - I’m just trying to be honest in my answers. Just because I feel uncomfortable with Ot4 doesn’t mean I hate the girls or want them to fail, I truly don’t. But again, having an opinion, even a negative one, is my right. As long as I’m being respectful to the girls I’ll allow myself to share my feelings and thoughts on certain things on my own personal blog - just because you stan someone doesn’t mean you have to like and agree with everything they do. That being said, there is definitely a big part of me that does want for 5H to end soon, simply so I can go back to stanning the girls 100% without feeling guilty. But I do hope they end on a bang.

  • Risking your life for a world that just never seems to thank you 
  • She understands why you had to keep it a secret, she’s not mad about that
  • You thank her for being understanding and tell her it’s about doing what’s right that led you to the avengers
  • Jessica will definitely make jokes about how famous you are and being a celebrity 
  • But people don’t know your real identity, you managed to keep it a secret even after shield fell 
  • You tell Jessica she’s the only one who really knows you now and she teases you about it but deep down she’s happy you feel comfortable being yourself around her
  • Wants to know the hot gossip about the other avengers
  • Will ask questions like: “So what’s the deal with the blonde and his hammer? Is he really a god?”
  • When you invite her to meet the team it’s a quick and firm no but you keep begging her to give them a chance
  • You bring her over on game night and things are awkward at first
  • Jessica and Natasha hit it off because they’re both closed off damaged people 
  • It takes awhile for Jess to get along with the other avengers 
  • She worries about you every time you go on a mission even if she doesn’t always tell you
  • You both have crazy schedules because of your day and night jobs but you make it work
  • You try to get her to drink less and after awhile she does
  • She’s happier around you and everyone can see that
Legend of Korra Sorting

(For @ravenclawinsight)

We’re only doing team avatar+Tenzin and Lin because there are a lot of characters in this show and these 6 shine as the main characters. If there are any other characters you would like to see sorted, please let us know!

*This sorting contains minor spoilers for the following show: The Legend of Korra*


Korra: Gryffindor

Originally posted by ayarambles

Korra is an incredibly headstrong, act-first, speak-later person. Unlike Aang, who was usually cautious before rushing into a problem, Korra tends to rush in headfirst without thinking. While she usually has good intentions, she doesn’t always wait until she has all of the information, which can lead to issues. She also has a love for glory, what with pro-bending, and saving people, and all. Though reckless from time to time, Korra is notably brave throughout the series, whether it’s taking on people who could take away her bending, spirits, or other benders. She is a true Gryffindor!


Asami: Ravenclaw

Originally posted by jakkugirl

Asami is so intelligent and smart! This woman can kick your ass, fix your car, and understand interpersonal relationships. She has the smarts to run a company by herself, and to hold her own without the bending that a lot of her friends possess. She’s also quite accepting, as we see with the way she warms up to Korra and treats the others on the team kindly..On top of that, in her letter to Korra we see a skill with a pen. Though not defining for a Ravenclaw, having a way with words is still an important, notable skill to have. Truly, no better house fits Asami than Ravenclaw!


Bolin: Slytherin/Hufflepuff

Originally posted by lifefibersync

(We had a little trouble with him)

Slytherin: He’s ambitious for certain. Bolin has no problem forsaking other goals to gain his end result. The lad does have a desire to feel powerful. He wants win when it comes to pro-bending, and truly aspires to become well-known and well-liked (see also: the entire movie star subplot.) Slytherin does seem to be rather fitting for him.

Hufflepuff: He cares for his brother even if it doesn’t always come off in that fashion. Bolin truly does try to be kind to most people that he meets, and it shown to be friendly to almost everyone. He’s kind to Korra even when Asami is still a bit icy to her in the beginning, and he’s the one who’s excited about meeting their family in Book 3 (?), whereas Mako is very grumpy and awkward. He’s also shown to be very loyal, standing up for Korra even when others start to look down upon the avatar. His loyalty also causes him a lot of conflict as he tries to figure out which people he wants to help the most. I feel like this is truly a problem that a Hufflepuff would have. Because of his kindness and loyalty, Bolin could also be a Hufflepuff!


Mako: Hufflepuff

Originally posted by lifefibersync

Mako is responsible, fair, calculated, loyal to the people he cares about, and hard working. A strong argument can be made for Hufflepuff, as he does have a strong urge to keep things fair for everyone, even at a detriment to himself. Mako is willing to sacrifice his own dreams for his brother’s happiness. He attempts to protect others when information might hurt them. He’s also incredibly dedicated to his job as a police officer, working hard to solve cases an move up in the ranks. This does come as a little bit of a fault, as he gets into a slight spat with Korra about it, but does all work out in the end. For his loyalty and hard work, Mako has to be a Hufflepuff!


Lin: Slytherin

Originally posted by lifefibersync

Lin is hard working, driven, and hiding a lot of pain. A large part of her character is hiding her past with her family and trying to forge her own path. Lin is very self-oriented, and doesn’t truly try to connect with others if she knows that is might hinder her or cause her pain. She’s determined and strong, and won’t let anything get in her way. Lin must be a Slytherin!


Tenzin: Ravenclaw

Originally posted by the-moonlight-witch

Tenzin is quite level-headed and calm when compared to the other characters, instantly ruling out Gryffindor. He acts as a mentor for Korra, teaching her the ways of airbending and acting a bit as a fatherly figure. Tenzin is wise beyond his years, and usually tends to think things through and stay calm in the face of danger. While not necessarily creative, Tenzin does fight to bring back the airbending nomads, an original, individualistic group of people in their own right. Tenzin is definitely a Ravenclaw.


We hope that this is to your liking!

monsanto: here's my oc queef! he's super edgy and cool and meant to be leader dw: hey do you take constructive criticism

i seriously hope Dreamworks takes a hold of their series and just does whatever the fuck with it because hearing they wanted to keep Shiro out of the show has nuked any faith i had in them. Their just Keith stans and will sacrifice everyone else for his glory

1. Bye to the Allura we all know and love. She’s on her way to being Keith’s arm candy.

2. Bye Lance. It was nice knowing you before you became a prop for Keith’s moral development. 

3. Hunk, we dont even know who you are and thats terrible. 

Pidge will be ok. lauren wont let them forget bout Pidge if its the last thing she does. 

Shiro..man, they are about to tear your characterization to shreads just to say “hey look, keith is actually the better leader afterall”

anonymous asked:

Them being "both the same shade" is how you excuse that....? Just say you hate black women and go on about your day.

You implied that I used that gif to stand in for an eclipse because she’s dark-skinned.  That argument falls apart since both women are the same shade.  That gif would’ve been just as funny had it been two men or two children or two white women.  It had nothing to do with MC Debra and everything to do with the motion.

But that’s beside the point.  Y’all need to grow up and learn how to click Previous because anybody who’s been here more than five minutes knows I stan for Black women 24/7.  Like…really?  I hate Black women?  That is the laziest clap if I have ever heard one.
