My mom who only saw a few separate episodes of supernatural with me and only because I had harassed her until she accepted, asked me today about CAS (she knows that he is my favorite character).
I told her that Cas died in the season final and her first reaction was: “Oh my God it’s so sad! Poor Dean! how is he doing, he must be devastated!“
It was really hard to hold back my tears.
I don't know anyone besides you with military experience and given your actual experience, what are your thoughts on the transgender ban in the military?
It’s a gigantic step back.
My father served and in his service DADT was so prevalent that people who were LGBT+ were afraid to do or say anything to friends, COs, and even often themselves.
During my service DADT was sadly still around but we were growing. A close friend of mine at the time was closeted and only told me after he got out and I was discharged to, in his words, “make it that much harder to use it against him”
When news came of DADT being abolished I felt so much pride in my country for taking that step and shame that so many people couldn’t enjoy that basic freedom in the past.
Hearing of this is so upsetting and one of the biggest reasons it is, is because it’s so uncalled for! There was no prompting of any sort for this to be issued, no headlines about how terrible trans people are for the military, and the reason there weren’t any is because they aren’t!
Women fought tooth and nail to be able to serve regardless of gender stereotypes and yet what are we doing now that’s so different from that?
Nonetheless, as to not ramble forever I’ll wrap it up. This is terrible news and I am very upset that this is taking place whatsoever.
Hearing our president say that trans people are a burden just sickens me. It’s so blatantly untrue and against all progress.
If you’re looking for a way to voice yourself I recommend signing these:
Jimin was sitting so close to Jungkook on the bus at one point in the BV episode that he might as well have just sat on his lap. 😂😂😂
At this point I am totally convinced that they were on a date and nothing can change my mind. Everything they did was so interpretively lovey dovey that I can’t deal. I mean, normally I would rewatch everything over and over and over and over and over again but I can’t even bring myself to do that this time because I don’t want my heart to die.
It’s like all the fanfictions and fan theories came to life (literally. some of them did), down to the way they interact and acted around each other. And I bet most of you even dared to imagine that Jimin and Jungkook would sit like that with each other on the bus. They were so friggen gross the whole time (like ew. what was all that flirting? idfk care about how tan he got plz >.>) that I couldn’t even watch without cringing LOL
And of course to finish it off, Park Jimin had to be super proud of his date with his mancake maknae and post commemorative photos and videos of it (who does that?) RIGHT AFTER THE EPISODE AIR LIKE ?!?!?!?!??! WHY WAS DIS SO IMPORTANT TO YOU BOI?
…anyways. I am now satisfied. af. and this ship has transcended the boundaries of OTP 👌👌👌
Was asked to organise an entire thing pretty much by myself last minute as fuck and only AFTER I ran around the entire day getting my shit together does the person send over the programme for the day, which made half my plans wrong and half my plans null
If you support The Head Orange banning transgender people from serving, then unfollow me. Actually, fucking block me. I don’t want you coming near my blog, me, or my trans friends with a pole as long as this fucking country.
So Kevin comes in at like 1 in the morning, brand new tattoo on his face, and he's drunk as hell but he's making this surprisingly coherent speech about being the deadliest piece of the board, and I'm just sitting there not saying a word because I don't know a thing about chess.
There's a video on my computer containing cuts from every single time Andrew sent a ball flying into someone's head set to the Donky Kong theme song. It's two and a half hours.
Neil has this thing where bad things happening to him are like a matter of fact. Once, he and I met up for lunch, and when the bill came he asked if he could pay me back later because he got mugged on the way over. As it turns out, what I mistook for Neil being a picky eater was actually Neil trying to eat without upsetting a shallow stab wound.
I don't drink alcohol because you can't account for what you'll do when you're drunk. Though sometimes that turns out fun. About a year ago we found out that Matt knows how to sing Sweden's national anthem backwards by heart, and that was hilarious. But on the other hand I've had Allison and Nicky competing on who can break a glass with their voice at three in the morning, so.
Kevin is definitely seems like everything in his life is about Exy, but get to know him and you realize that he has plenty of interests, it's just that he has no concept of doing things in moderation. So it's less a stick up his butt and more like, I don't know, a pool noodle or something.
Neil doesn't have a concept of money, a fact which on any given day swings between hilarious and flat out tragic. He refused to pay $15.90 for new pants but said he'd pay for my med school if I stopped making fun of his new haircut. To be clear, both of these things happened in the same conversation.
I love God, I do. He's always in my heart. But I guess God has abandonment issues because every time I see a commercial for a McFlurry I can just feel him testing me.
The thing about the Foxes is that the stress level on any given day can fluctuate so wildly you get whiplash. One day you're getting yelled at for not blocking a shot, the next you're getting yelled at for "obstruction of justice" or whatever it is the Feds call it when you remind them that they can't come in without a search warrant. Why Wymack does this willingly is beyond me.
On the one hand, the Foxes are much less organized, not to mention a smaller team. Every game, we're at an almost immediate disadvantage. On the other hand, Ravens are contractually forbidden from Irish coffee. So overall the decision isn't hard.
Ok but that photo you drew of Mcree with his serape flaring out behind him just makes the fabric look like fairy wings. And now all I can imagine is that he's a fairy with unusually large, super big wings patterned like his serape so he just lets them flop down over his shoulders. Maybe normal fairy ettiquite is 'don't touch the wings' but he doesn't know/care and just lets them flop over or wrap around his loved ones.
I asked my dad a while back if he had any funny D&D stories because he’s been playing for over 30 years now. He told me about the time he was DMing a 3.5e game and his group stumbled upon a lake, which one of them did not believe was actually there.
Skeptical player: I put my hand in the water to see if it’s real.
DM (my dad): It feels like real water.
Player: I still dont think it’s real. I wade out into the water.
DM: Okay, you wade out into the lake.
Player: I put my head underwater.
(Note: this particular player did not have a Swim skill)
why do you cry about some Chinese girls you'll never meet?
they've been my family since day one and will always be there for me. It doesn't matter if we don't live in the same place or speak the same language. They give us hope and something to always look forward too, even when life has us at our lowest point.
Can you do a solangelo where will spends the night in the hades cabin and then they're really embarrassed
Will hadn’t meant to fall asleep.
He’d just been very tired last night. He’s been working nonstop at the infirmary, his infirmary, and there had been a lot of kids that needed patching up after the round of capture the flag with the Roman kids. Will should know better, and it’s not like he doesn’t trust his siblings, it’s just. A complex, maybe. Anyway, all he remembers from yesterday is that he’d stumbled into the medicine cabinet one too many times, and Kayla had finally had enough, shoving him out the door and into Nico’s waiting arms, telling him to “get some rest before you come back, or so help me.”
And now he’s… here.
Here is inside the Hades cabin, lying in Nico’s bed, an arm trapping him under the covers and something warm pressed against his side. Will blinks again, just to make sure he isn’t still dreaming.
The body beside him shifts, and Will turns his head to find himself face-to-face with Nico’s throat. He freezes. Nico swallows, and Will watches his Adam’s apple bob slightly with the movement.
“Uh,” he says. “Nico?”
Nico stirs. The arm thrown over Will’s chest moves, and then groggy brown eyes are staring down at him. “Oh,” Nico says, yawning. “Good morning.”
“Good, uh, good morning to you, too.” Will pushes himself up slowly. He does feel better rested than he has in days, but he can feel heat quickly rising in his cheeks. “Um. This is—I mean, thanks for, uh, taking care of me last night?”
“It’s fine,” Nico says. He seems to be waking up more rapidly now, shifting backwards to put some space between them. “I thought here might be quieter than your cabin, and then I couldn’t wake you up, so…” He shrugs, eyes anywhere but Will’s face. “Are you feeling better?”
They both stare at separate walls, pretending the blush on their cheeks doesn’t exist. Will can imagine what his siblings will say and the raised eyebrows their friends will give them, but he can still feel the warmth of Nico against him. He risks a glance back and finds the other boy already watching him.
Face still flushed pink, Will chances a smile. “Want to get breakfast with me?”
Nico looks away, but there’s a small smile playing on his lips, too. “Okay.”
I feel as though I barely post any Sansa things on the blog during got season (since season 5 anyway) and I thought it was probably time to state why. I love book!Sansa. She is one of my favourite characters. I love how complex she is and she has great character development.
Having said that, I don’t hate show!Sansa. I hate how she is written.
(yes, there is a difference, hence why I’ll still reblog sets of her in scenes I like)
I saw a meta recently about season 7 (about the conflict in the North) and it summed up my feelings about the way Sansa is written in some scenes in one perfect word: contrived.
A key example of this is the scenes in this season with her and Jon when Jon is holding council. Twice now he has held a public council and show!Sansa has spoken against his decisions. This doesn’t fit at all with her character. Sansa was a lady at three, courtesy is her armour, she knows about image politics (that was amply learned in her time in the south). She would not speak against the King in the North publicly, undermining him, she would do it privately.
I’ve seen people in the tags defending Jon, defending Sansa, arguing over who’s right. It’s bad writing, simple as that. These actions do not make sense, but the writers wanted conflict, so it has to be Sansa speaking out publicly even if that isn’t something she would do, because the conflict is what they need to move the story to where they want it.
They’ve done this so much with show!Sansa. Plot progression based on character actions which are built on a solid foundation of characterisation and logical character development tells a good story. Instead they insert Sansa into these scenes (marrying Ramsay (when she is already married!), hiding the info about the knights of the Vale, being the negative voice in Jon’s councils) when we could have had Sansa in the Vale to begin with, bringing the knights of the Vale to take back the North (perhaps even at the same time as Jon’s assault with the wildlings!), then a natural conflict between her supporters and his, because a choice between a bastard son and a legitimate daughter should come with some consideration (and even more when they know that a legitimate son also lives).
There's no such thing as a pro-life feminist. Sorry.
I knew i would get this ask ever since i put it in my blog description so i’m going to stick to my beliefs and im not sorry if I offend you.
long story short: yes there is. because i am one of them. there are plenty of pro-life feminists in the world and on tumblr.
feminism is the advocacy of equal rights for the sexes. i believe in a woman’s right to have equal pay, equal treatment before the law, equal treatment from other human beings, equal representation in media, etc.. we’re good on that, right?
i also believe a woman has a right to do what she wants with her body. HOWEVER: a child developing inside a woman is not the woman’s body. the child has its own unique DNA from the moment of conception. it develops its own heartbeat, its own fingerprints; it is its own person.
and absolutely no one has the right to take the life of another person. there is something terribly wrong with a society that kills the weakest of its people because it’s the easiest way out. guess what: what is easy is almost never right. guess what else: the aborted girls who never get a chance to see the world have rights too. who’s standing up for them? i am.
Some miscellaneous observations and Good Canon Facts about the FBI Family:
JJ was the first to refer to the team as a family, Garcia and Rossi are the two that use family words the most
Reid is a similar age to Steven (Gideon’s estranged son) and Sean (Hotch’s estranged kid brother), and if Rossi’s son had lived he’d have been about that age too. It’s obvious from their relationships with Reid that Gideon, Hotch and Rossi are all aware of this fact.
Rossi considers himself “more married to this team than [he] was to three ex-wives”
Morgan once jokingly referred to Hotch and Rossi as “mom and dad”
Hotch and Emily look like they could easily be siblings
Reid doesn’t look much like Hotch, but he could very easily be mistaken for a relative of Jack’s (eg. a cousin or much older brother)
JJ and Reid could probably pass for siblings too, although that’s more in terms of behaviour than looks
Jack calls Rossi ‘Uncle Dave’
JJ’s kids call Reid (who is also their godfather) ‘Uncle Spencer’
Garcia likes to specify that she is Henry and Michael’s fairy godmother, thank you very much
Blake once said that she likes to think that if her son Ethan had lived, he’d have been a lot like Reid
Blake’s dad (who had only just met them that week) invited the whole team around for a barbecue, saying that they couldn’t have a party without “the whole family”
Shortly after Morgan’s son was born, Rossi delightedly declared that it was time for him to meet his Uncle Dave
Morgan names his son Hank Spencer Morgan, after his dad and “the best little brother anybody could ever ask for”
Garcia refers to the team going out for a meal together as “family dinner”
