do you know why i'm mad

gayderade  asked:

Okay so Experimentation is my favorite Bechloe fic at the moment, and I just gotta let yOU knOW why. Besides the obvious mad writing skills youre sporting, you just really really know how to specifically write for the PP fandom??? Like, you write a perfect Beca Mitchell??? I dont think Ive read many fics that really capture her as well as you do. I honestly wouldnt be surprised if Canon hired you to write a few bits of the PP3 script.

Really, it’s mostly just….

No, wait. Wait, wait. You’ve made me nervous with your compliments.

This is just… So nice! Obviously, as many writers are, I’m a whore for hearing WHY people like my stuff (seriously, just ask my beta). And like… whenever someone tells me I’ve done a good job writing a character, that really makes my day? Every single time? Because, for me anyway, that’s one thing that really makes me nervous. Finding the character’s voice (or in this case, like 8 of them) and trying to write them realistically (which can be hard, case in point; Lilly. Or Fat Amy. Or Flo. Fuck, no, all of them. Every single one) because they can say some random-ass shit, and then that’s wall we get from them in the movies. So, while it’s fun to try and flesh them out, it’s also super daunting.

I appear to have gone off on a small tirade.

Sorry. I really just wanted to say thank you and i love you for taking the time to stop by my ask and say SUCH. NICE. THINGS.

But i can promise you no one has asked me to write anything for the PP3 script. Sorry. ;)

Reasons I Ship Percico

It’s a common question in the fandom “why do people ship Percico?” So, here is half my list:

1. I like the idea of their relationship slowly evolving into a cloud of playful pushes, friendly jokes and random kisses.

2. The friendship they have (you know, the one they had before it mysteriously disappeared) was amazingly cute and could have made Nico happier if he wasn’t dealing with a lot of stuff on his own.

3. The thought of Nico slowly, but surely, over time, start opening up to Percy is just…. Wow.

4. What about Percy opening up to Nico about a personal problem to show he can be trusted? 

5. That time when Percy ran through the dangerous Labyrinth to find Nico at the thought of him being in danger clearly shows he cares about Nico.

6. I love the cheesy ending of Nico finally getting the one he always loved.

7. Nico loved but resented Percy, so think if they were together, that Percy would have the perfect comeback to Nico’s little snaps.

8. How about Percy sitting there, looking at Nico and regretting thinking he was ever annoying when they first met? 

9. It would be so cute if Percy and Nico’s relationship slowly grown over several months as they got comfortable together.

10. I’m sorry, but the thought of Nico getting irritated with the camp life and visiting Percy in his apartment for a few weeks is just adorable.

11. What about Percy’s sexuality you ask? It makes it 10 times better if Percy falls for Nico’s personality, not the fact that he’s a gay guy. So not exactly bi, but a straight guy who simply fell in love with Nico di Angelo.

12. Nico was always the one to think of ways to keep Percy safe. Ex. the curse of Achilles, going in the Labyrinth, going into Tartarus to find the Doors of Death etc.

Most importantly, I ship percico because both the characters were cheated out of their friendship by their own author. It’s NOT in character for Percy to just sit there while Jason is just talking about not saving Nico from the Giants because he might be a traitor. That scene gets me so angry I see red. Nico deserves a slow build up with someone he knows and cares about so he can actually get over his self-hatred. Nico is such an amazing character and the way he was written in The Hidden Oracle was insulting.

I ship Percico because they both deserve better.

I talk to you, and you get mad, and I don’t talk to you and you get mad. I let you in, and you reject me, and I don’t let you in and you say I’m rejecting you. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I don’t know why I can’t just make you happy.

Part of the reason why I’m so tired of/have grown to kind of hate kpop has to be due to the weird reactions I get whenever I do post anything kpop related.

For instance, if you’ve been following me since the DAWN of time, you know that I make lame dad joke captions with pictures of BTS.  They’re meant to be lame and weird.  

But then, I get shit like “Don’t get mad, but you’re so unfunny to me *laugh cry emoji*, which isn’t meant to be directly hurtful, but sends a very definite message.  

When I post things like my psychosexual analyses or a random musing about an idol, I get the weirdest and most douchey comments in my ask box like, “yeah, you can think that way but don’t push it on the rest of us”.  You mean I can’t post what I find cool and interesting about people on my own blog?  What!?

Idk if I’ve ever mentioned before, but I get a ton of this shit.  Most I tend to delete on sight.  Other times, I’m letting them sit in my ask box in order to work up the patience to kindly address these utterances so as not to appear to scary to the people who are actually kind and supportive readers.  

I get folks in my pms (<— I know, seriously) who say I’ve changed, that my attitude is different.  It’s like, if you hedonists looked past me as a source of pleasure or entertainment, then maybe you might be able to empathize with the social conditioning I have to resist on the daily.  It’s become harder and harder to enjoy myself here.  Of course I’ve changed!!!  Have some kindness and patience and maybe I can learn to enjoy myself again. 

I made the first episode of my self defense web series

And because I’m the genius that I am, I deleted it -__-

The first episode is titled, “They’re teaching you to die” and it explains why I’m doing what I’m doing and some basic strikes. I’m wondering if I should just hop straight into the meat of it, but if I’m doing a series, I want to start from the beginning and give a full curriculum.

Also, I need to know some good video editing programs because apparently, I have none. 

I’m going to re-record these (because, once again, I’m a genius) tomorrow night since this is pretty hard to do by myself. 

One more thing to add, I tried out those moves in that video with the “rape escape” and no…no they didn’t work. I would’ve been screwed if I tried to use it.

˝What do you want me to do Dean?! Do you want me to just accept what you did? To just accept that you’ll die instead of me? ˝ you yelled at the men in front of you, tears streaming down your face.

˝What was I supposed to do? ˝ Dean’s voice broke in the end. ˝I can’t live without you Y/N. ˝

˝And you think I can live without you Dean? ˝

does anyone get mad when they do something and someone else does the same thing but it’s so much better than yours? and then you get irrationally mad and upset but you shouldn’t be? because it’s not just your thing, you didn’t copyright it so other people can do it too but you’re still mad? does that happen to anyone or just me?

Why do you always say the opposite of what you mean? I know you’re really soft-hearted inside but you keep throwing your temper around. That’s why you get mad, because you don’t know your own feelings. How about you try following your heart.

The same people who scream it’s not about ‘Iris West being black’ and list a bunch of bullshit reasons why they don’t like her or westallen are the same people mad that Iris West is to be portrayed by a black woman again. Like if it’s not about race, why are you already mad?

“Those who can’t do, teach”

That is the biggest load of bullshit and the root of so many systematic flaws in our (Canada’s) education system. Why?

Kids are always told, always taught “Hey even if you fail at this, you can always be a teacher” because of the myth that “anyone can teach!” Well you know what that leads to?

People who failed at their passion, failed at their achieving their dream, becoming teachers. True, some people really find their passion in teaching even if they never originally considered it, but I’m not talking about those people.

I’m talking about those asshole teachers man, the ones you can just TELL don’t give a fuck. You know the ones, we’ve all had them at least in our school if not personally for a class.

(For me, my love of science was destroyed and left rotting in the sun because of the same shitty teacher for grade 9 and 10. Utterly gone. Sometimes a spark of it comes back, but never the way it was before I had that teacher.)

Problem is, they are by far NOT the majority of teachers. 

Most teachers truly WANT to teach, want to work with kids and help them grow and share knowledge with them. Here is where those rotted teachers affect the good fruit.

We all know negativity overshadows everything with even a touch of it, so to a student who has a truly shitty teacher, well all teachers suddenly look as bad as that asshole. So a rowdy 15 year old whose mad about that one teacher, suddenly starts treating all their teachers like shit. Whatever, kids have hormones and emotions, and most teachers don’t take it personally (the assholes will) BUT!

Now take that one kid, add like say 6/ class and over 20 years. THAT is the origin of the other kind of asshole teacher: they achieved their dream and loved it until it rotted from beneath them, and they no longer love their job, and what was the point of it all anyways? 

(My school had a teacher like this. She was horrid and impatient and an academic death sentence to anyone who had her class. But she was very very intelligent and if you bothered to notice you could just TELL she was tired and just didn’t care anymore.)

So now there are teachers who just SHOULDN’T be teachers, and others who are SO WORN DOWN they become evil (Die a hero or become the villain kind of thing).

The Good Teachers are suddenly in a losing battle, because kids expect them to be awful, (also teenagers take everything personally man, I did, but damn), and even when a teacher is THE BEST who remembers them? We all have Shitty Teacher stories, but so few actually have like Good/Inspiring Teacher stories.

Thus the entire legitimacy of their profession is lost, because of a few bad apple and a society that believes “Those who can’t do, teach.”

HOW DO WE FIX THIS YOU ASK? WELL I HAVE SOME IDEAS

  1. Psychological/ Personality analyses for prospective teachers. Some people just plain and simple should not be teachers. Get rid of them right off the bat. I’m sure they’ll be fucking great in another field, but not this one. 
  2. Respect your teachers. This sounds simple, but I’m not just talking about students I mean their parents, other members of society, basically everyone. No one would be where they are without teachers, your kids are going to be partially raised by their teachers, they are extraordinarily important and yet people don’t just take them for granted, they think they are ‘lazy’ and took the easy road for life. DESTROY THIS MENTALITY, KILL IT, BURN IT, AND SALT THE GROUND FROM WHICH IT WAS BORN.
  3. Tailor classes to fit students’ learning style/personality. This is not coddling, the fact of the matter is people have different learning styles and the current education system works only for one group while royally fucking over everyone else. Many learning disabilities people have are ways the system says “They are different so we’ll label and marginalize them because we don’t know/don’t care what to do about them” but the reality is a lot of these kids just learn in a different way (OK I KNOW THAT’S SUPER GENERAL IM SORRY, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TRYING TO SAY???). So many BRILLIANT kids struggle through school because they don’t fit the education system’s tiny box, and because they struggle they are labelled “stupid”. In a different environment, with a different teaching method, they could truly excel. Instead of diving schools with “The Smart/Elite Classes” “The Medium Difficulty” and “The Dumb Kids”, schools should be divided by the different learning styles. Help kids learn to learn, don’t smother them and try to cram them into a very specific box.
  4. Stop Mountains of Homework and Change Tests. Forcing someone to do anything will ultimately ruin their enjoyment of it, and homework is a great way to make kids hate learning. People LIKE learning, we really do, but the fastest way to kill a spark is to bury it. Even tests, if you just encourage kids to show off what they know instead of shame them for what they don’t, all they does is fuel the mentality of not being “smart enough” and seriously create a fear of failure. My adult siblings still have nightmares about standardized tests ok, YOU KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG WHEN DECADES LATER PEOPLE ARE SO TRAUMATIZED THEY HAVE NIGHTMARES. 
  5. Start School Later. Teenagers need their god damned sleep. Adults do too, but the body is going through so many changes during your adolescence that you need more sleep. Even if you are well rested, everyone’s mind is basically soup in the morning (because you’re TIRED) but also you don’t absorb information as well when you are exhausted. Also fewer grumpy students and teachers, which leads to more enjoyable classroom environments. THERE ARE LITERALLY NO DOWNSIDES TO STARTING SCHOOL LATER. (This one is so easy and obvious it’s dumb that we still start school before sunrise.)
  6. Pay Teachers Better. BEING PAID MORE DOES NOT MAKE PEOPLE LAZY, FROM US POOR MINIMUM WAGE FOLKS TO MIDDLE CLASS STABLE PEOPLE. IT MAKES US APPRECIATE WORK AND BUY MORE THINGS AND FIX THE ECONOMY. That “appreciate work” is very key to this, because a well paid teacher is a happy teacher who is far less likely to grow sour and take it out on their students. If we put this with the whole “Kill homework” idea, we get well paid AND well rested teachers who now operate at maximum capacity. You wouldn’t want a surgeon who is underpaid and completely exhausted to do your surgery, so why are you OK with the people in charge of entire generations of kids, effectively the future, to be tired and poor?

These are off the top of my head, and I am positive there are more points that I just haven’t considered. My knowledge comes from an understanding of the education system in Ontario specifically, so please PLEASE add your own thoughts. ( edwardspoonhands can you lend your thoughts on this topic maybe?? I don’t know how different the American Education system is, and Canada takes may cues from The States. )

Guys if we want school to be better in the future, this shit has to change.

Do you know what I love about Fitz’s hallucination arc? He hallucinated Jemma wearing the same thing she wore on FZZT. He hallucinated her wearing the clothes from the first time he thought he lost her.

But there’s also this other thing: he thought she left because he confessed his feelings for her. But he wasn’t mad because she didn’t feel the same way so she left. He was mad because she simply left him. That’s why his hallucinations acted the same way Jemma used to act around him - she wasn’t extra touchy or declaring her love for him.

He just wanted her, his friend, back. And safe.
