don't know if it is the way you wanted nonnie

Okay so my characters hand gets cut off in a sword fight and I wanted to know if it was possible for my character to stay concious and in action for at least 15 minutes after that if she injects herself with some kind of medicine(which one?I was hoping you could help me.. I guessed morphine but I don't know if that works because it needs to be something that stops the blood for a bit right?)Sorry if my English is bad,it's not my first lenguage and thank you for taking time to answer if possible

Hey there nonny! 

First, the only way your character will survive this is with a tourniquet, applied quickly. Medications won’t help; what they need is to stop the bleeding. 

I think this series of posts would benefit you greatly: 

[Write Better Bleeding Part 1: Shock]

[Write Better Bleeding Part 2: Hemorrhage Control]

[Write Better Bleeding Part 3: Transfusions]

*Links corrected!

Generally speaking, your character’s stamina after their amputation is going to be limited by two things: how much blood they’ve lost, their overall stamina for a fight that long, and how their pain tolerance is. 

Theoretically they could continue to fight for a significant battle after their wound, if the tourniquet was applied quickly (ie, not much blood was lost), but they’ll be in significant amounts of pain from both the wound and from the tourniquet. 

It’s a rumor that a number of US warfighters, particularly Special Forces types, actually go into combat with tourniquets loosely pre-applied to each extremity, so that if they get shot they can simply tighten it up and keep fighting. Having never fought with special forces, I can’t confirm it, but it’s something I’ve heard from several sources, a few of whom were ex-military. (It’s also a personal choice thing, not part of the uniform.) 

Good luck with your story!

Hey if you're still taking requests, would you write one about Akaashi painting his adopted child's room and his SO (could be Bo or someone else) comes home and finds him covered in paint and just sorta watches him fondly and they talk about the future and its just super fluffy and cute? (bonus if Aka's in old ripped jeans and an oversized sweatshirt and his SO is momentarily overwhelmed by him) <3 <3 xx

“I’m home!” 

“In here!” Akaashi calls back.

Koutarou sets down the plastic bags and pokes his head into the spare room. It’s still mostly boxes of their things, but they’ve been moving things out gradually. Any day now, they’d be moving new furniture in—a bookshelf, a desk, a bed. Bright and colourful, fit for a child. 

Akaashi stands by the far wall, newspapers spread out over the carpeted floor. He’s wearing faded ripped jeans that had seen better days and a sweatshirt Koutarou half-recognized as his own, something from his college days that is all worn and loose now. His dark curls are pinned back, and there is pale yellow paint splattered across his clothes and smudged on his skin.

He still looks absolutely gorgeous.

“What are you doing?” Koutarou says, leaning against the doorframe.

Akaashi looks sheepish. “I wanted to see if this colour would work out.” He gestures at the small can at his foot. “’Pineapple delight.’ You said you wanted something bright, right?”

Koutarou hums. “I like it. It’s warm.”

“Yeah.” Akaashi looks at the small section of the wall he’s painted over. “You think they’ll like it?”

They don’t know who they’ll get yet. They’ve been trying for gods know how many months. But Akaashi wants this so badly, and Koutarou wants Akaashi to be happy so fiercely. Being able to come home to Akaashi is a blessing he never thought he’d be able to have, but Koutarou can only imagine the joy of coming home to their family. His family.

“I’m sure they will,” Koutarou says softly.

Akaashi looks over at him. The early evening light from the window behind him gives him a quiet sort of glow. He looks tired, staying up late searching the web for tips on becoming a parent. But there’s a content sort of air about him, clinging to his skin ever since they received that call that night. They were approved and moving onto the next stage. They were going to be parents. For real.

Koutarou steps forwards. Akaashi meetes him half way. The paint on his skin has dried and the room smells like paint, but Koutarou doesn’t mind. He threads his fingers through Akaashi’s hair and kisses him slow.

“Want to come with me to buy more paint tomorrow?” whispers Akaashi.

Koutarou grins. "Wouldn’t miss it for the world.”

anonymous asked:

Steph, I need your help. I have a crush on Ben. I know it's just a public image and all - but I can't get him out of my head. I'm suffering, I don't even want to look at other people in a romantic way. It would be normal if I was a teen, but I am in my 20s and this situation makes me depressed. I don't want to live in a reality where I am nothing compared to someone I'm in love with. I'm probably not the first girl among the fans with this problem, but I feel so lost. Maybe you have some advice?

Hey Nonny! <3

Ah, I feel ya, Lovely. Ben is that unachievable goal that we’ll never reach, it seems. I really get you on this, though I think he pleases me aesthetically and he seems like a genuinely nice person that I want to be friends with, hah hah. Maybe have a snuggle or two with.

But unfortunately reality is a cruel jerk and I am not friends with him, nor will I ever get my snuggle, and will probably never meet him – it’s sad to think about since meeting him would make my entire life, but it’s just something of a logical realistic thing I had to come to terms with. 

Honestly I don’t know how to help you get over your Ben-addiction; still suffering it myself, LOL. If it makes you feel any better Nonny, I have pics of Ben up on my wall at home and at work, because seeing his face makes me happy; I am in my mid-thirties. Do people make fun of me for it? Hell yeah, but Ben doesn’t make them happy, so I don’t care. And I know I am just a blip on his radar, and I’m okay with that. The fact that you know and admit you have a problem is the first step to healing. I guess the best advice I have for you is to try to get out and meet new people, spend some time with coworkers or friends, and step away from the Ben for a bit. Find out WHAT about Ben you like, the TRUE qualities about his character that attract you, and understand that those may be the qualities you might like in a potential partner. I’m not trying to be harsh, but your “love” for Ben is a superficial thing that will never be realistically reciprocated from him. Your “love” could actually be a manifestation of your own loneliness and desire to feel love in return… trust me on this one. Learning to love yourself, or at least find out why others like or love you, is a good way to start the healing process. And in turn, you can then offer genuine love and then see in other people what you saw in Ben.

For instance, I love his charming nature, his natural ability to be really funny, he’s dorky, and his need to ensure everyone is happy and respect for people is something to aspire to. Plus his work ethic and acting is astounding, and I find that, as someone who has a similar work ethic, very attractive. See? Nothing physical listed here (though I will be the first to admit that his ethereal beauty is SO lovely to me. His eyes, cheeks and smile. GUH), and in turn if / when I look for a partner, I now know some of the check boxes I can use. It’s not about looks, it’s about the character of the person for me. 

I’m very sorry you are suffering, Nonny. Please don’t be depressed because of a “fan phase”. It is just a phase, one that we all go through at some point in our lives and will eventually tide over once your heart realizes it needs to listen to the head for a change. If it does get really bad, though, Nonny, please do talk to someone. Sometimes hearing yourself say it out loud is enough to realize “what the hell am I doing?” and be able to carry on. Your heart is a very special thing, and one that someone who loves it in return deserves to see.

if my anons were as rude as yours I don't know if I would handle it as kindly as you do! You're such a kind person even when a bunch of people are being mean to you! ily!

awh thanks nonny :’) ! tbh I try to see them as voicing their opinion in a different way instead of “being rude” so it doesn’t seem as “hurtful” if that makes any sense? I mean I dont get hurt my “haters”/rude anons anyways ‘cause I’ve built quite a thick skin over the past few years & i just want to show my followers that you can respond to hate comments in a more confident way so you don’t seem like ur bothered by them & hopefully they’ll stop? At least for me, bullies don’t persist unless they get a response back- they want you to feel a certain way & feel joy if you do show a certain emotion! love you nonny :+) edit: remember kids, “haters” are just random ppl on the internet who have nothing better to do than to bring u down. think about that, they took their time out of their day to write smt mean about you, you should feel special since they wanted to “waste” their “precious” time on u right?

Heck I know that you probably don't care but I'm a trans boy and I really wanna do a cosplay of Eddie. I feel like I'm way too like fat though and people will keep using "she" because I have a feminine body. I have a binder, but my hips,,,,,,, ew,

Hey there, sweet nonny! <3

I think it’s super awesome that you want to cosplay Eddie and I wholeheartedly encourage you to do so. Your body type shouldn’t dictate who you do and do not get to cosplay, because life is waaaay too short for that. IT is all about facing your fears and ignoring the prejudices of others. Can you imagine how excited and honoured Eddie would be if he found out someone wanted to cosplay him? I’d say go for it and if people misgender you, you can always spray them in the face with your inhaler going: “This is battery acid, you slime!”

After watching R1, it quickly became my fav SW movie and I fell really deep into the SW fandom for the first time. But recently I've honestly kind of felt bad about myself because I loved the whole squad, including Jyn, and I absolutely love Jyn/Cassian, but the amount of vitriol surrounding both is unlike anything I've ever seen in any fandom. I know I shouldn't let antis get to me, and I don't want to give them the satisfaction. Do you have any advice on how to keep a positive head space?

First of all, nonny, I am so happy you love Rogue One so much! I know so many people have had it skyrocket to their favorite Star Wars movie and are finding themselves in fandom for the first time. It’s great to see and participate in all this Star Wars love. That is what fandom is all about.

Given that, I am so sorry that the antis are getting you down. People can be jerks, and antis feed off the way they upset people. I’ve come across this with many of my favorite characters and it’s really just same old, same old with these people. The structure of Tumblr makes it a little harder to get around them but here is my advice.

1) If you see antis when you go into the tag, go ahead and block them. I block freely and without reserve. People who don’t respect the tag or don’t try to keep their posts out of the search results are trying to rile you up and they don’t deserve the satisfaction.

2) Do not directly engage with a post. What I do and what I’ve seen others do is create a new post that mentions the claim and then debunks it. What you are interested in is not convincing the anti, who is out to destroy happiness, but to generate positive conversation with people who are casually reading things (and your friends). Keep the high ground at all times. Responding to the post directly only feeds the trolls. If by some bizarre unfortunate chance you get anon hate, delete it without publishing. Imagine the anti, refreshing your blog over and over waiting to see your outrage in vain.

3) If you have friends who are posting negative things about Jyn or Jyn/Cassian, ask them if they can use a tag so you can blacklist their posts. Friends don’t want to keep upsetting friends, after all. I use Tumblr Savior but XKit is also a good tool to filter out these posts.

4) Rewatch Rogue One! (Maybe stop right after they go through the shield gate so you don’t cry but up until that point it makes me purely happy.) Watch Jyn learn to trust again and find a home after being abandoned for so many years! Watch Cassian yell for her in concern and go back for her repeatedly, even when the mission does not require it! Watch them have no concept of personal space, even when they’re upset with each other! Watch the entire Rogue One team bond and become a found family! Watch the way Jyn and Cassian light up in the “welcome home” scene with bonus leaning! Watch the elevator scene! The good news is that canon is on our side.

5) Most importantly, focus on the joy in fandom :) There are so many more fans who love this movie and Jyn and Jyn/Cassian than people who hate her and the ship. There are many people who are not on Tumblr who love the whole team, including Jyn and this ship. You can follow positive blogs to stay inundated with positive fandom and I have to give a shout out to @therebelcaptainnetwork​ as a central location for happy Jyn/Cassian content.

(When in doubt, step away from Tumblr. Go for a walk, drink some tea, pet a fluffy animal. Fandom should be fun but it’s also important to take breaks when it’s not, as with anything.)

The antis are loud because they want attention but at the end of the day, these people are spending their time hating something instead of creating positive content about something they love. They are the equivalent of the bullies in the parking lot yelling mean things as you drive off with your friends to do something you love, and they should be treated as such - ignored in general and publicly, calmly, and factually refuted when they become a nuisance (like this weekend). In contrast, we get to spend our time being delighted and happy about these characters.

Above all,

Hello, I saw your post about "my body, my choice" and I really don't want to be offensive or rude, but I genuinely would like to know why you think it doesn't go both ways? Isn't it her body, her choice wether she wants to keep it or not? Sorry again if I am being dumb here.

no worries, nonnie, not rude at all.

my issue is not on an in story level. you’re right, it does go both ways and it’s bex’s choice.

the thing is ‘my body, my choice’ is and has always been a pro choice slogan. its message is that female reproductive health and the choice to be and stay or not pregnant should be up to the woman. and that having an abortion is not evil, it’s not a sin or a shame. it is a valid choice, up to the person who is pregnant.

ed have repeatedly and consistently treated abortion as shameful (look at kerry, she was practically punished for having an abortion when she felt it was the right thing to do.) and while i understand that a lot of it comes from not wanting to alienate the audience it’s aimed at, just the introduction of the “forced abortion” detail shows how it’s treated as abortion is the worst thing that could happen to a women.

to use a slogan about choice, a known, established slogan, in a storyline with the opposite purpose, is a massive slap in the face. 'my body, my choice’ means whether someone has an abortion or not, it’s their prerogative. and either choice is valid and there is no shame in either.

Hiddleswift lasted what, like 2 minutes? SMM has been going on for over a year. Fauxmance or not, I don't think we will ever know for sure. And most people don't even care so it won't hurt him either way. I've never seen a picture of them together in any of the tabloid type magazines. So it has been an atypical fauxmance as fauxmances go.

Not aimed at you specifically, Nonnie, but I want to barf out a reminder that any opinions I give are rooted in the fact that I was deeply immersed in celebrity gossip for a decade before doing it for several years as a full-time, 60-hour-a-week job. That being said, it doesn’t matter if people don’t care now. Reputations can absolutely be make-or-break after the fact. Even if someone reads an article or a post about a celebrity they aren’t familiar with, even if their comment boils down to, “WHO???” it plants a seed of scorn. And whenever they see that name, they remember the only thing they’ve ever read about them. When I answered a previous anon with information about fauxmances, it wasn’t a finger point to this situation. It’s just another facet on a the celebrity relationship dice and was used as an example of a situation that is generally not well-received. And I’m not saying that I’m hitting the nail on the head, just offering a unique perspective.

If it's ok to ask, how did you think to publish your web comic to line webtoon? I'm thinking of publishing one to webtoon myself but I don't know how to or if it might be a good idea. Would there be anything I need to think about before if I want to publish one?

Hi nonnie!

In my opinion, I think you should go ahead and share your comic on Webtoon, the best way to learn is to start doing it! Here are Webtoon’s uploading instructions if you haven’t already checked them out.

As for how I approached publishing on Webtoon…I didn’t! I was publishing UtA on Tapastic back in 2014 and was contacted by the Webtoon team. They offered me a contract and they took care of publishing for me in exchange for weekly episodes.

My newest comic is pending for a Webtoon upload so I’ll pretty much be in your same position, but I’ve had great experiences on this platform and it’s a great way to get discovered as well as find new reads to obsess over!

I suggest taking some time to check out existing webtoons and see how other creators are handling things. Webtoon’s scrolling format can be taken advantage of in a variety of ways, so play around with it! I can truthfully say that you will learn as you go.

I totally don't mean this in a bad way or anything, but how/why do you ship Kolivance? I don't really understand the ship potential of it, and I want to know how you see it

Hello Nonnie! You don’t sound rude at all :3 So don’t worry.

If we, the mods, are being honest… it started out as a 100% pure crack ship xD

And then we thought about it… and we thought about it, and went “Holy hell there’s potential here.” Not potential in the sense of “ITS GONNA BE CANO Nkgahsg” gods no, that’s unrealistic xD But in the sense that their characters could build and feed off each other, helping one another grow.

We’ve talked about this a bit and it boils down to: mutual support.

Kolivan, by being in a leadership position, knows and can recognize the signs that Lance is displaying. We all agreed that Kolivan is probably equipped, to some degree, to deal with them as well, as any leader eventually has to be. At first it starts with that, just Kolivan helping Lance get through his issues. Helping Lance learn to defend himself, helping him further some of his skills that he looks down upon, and helping him realize what he already has.

What Lance gives is a new approach to things. Lance is goofy, he’s playful and funny and likes to balance serious and fun. He looks out for others. With Kolivan spending more time with him, Lance spends more time with Kolivan. This would result in, in a shipping sense, Kolivan learning to relax more, to take a step back and have some fun, to realize that life isn’t just about the war.

That’s the main reason we started shipping it hardcore because the potential growth they offer each other, even in a platonic sense, is amazing, and it’s a dynamic that we all love, and exploring it has been amazing.

On more silly notes: we also just love the idea of Lance clinging to Kolivan’s back and being carried around like a backpack. It’s cute, and adorable, and makes me giggle xD

I know there's tons going on but I wanna thank you for the way you portrayed Nens struggle with his sexuality and stuff like, LGBT people don't get tons of representation and when we do it's usually "out and proud" characters.. I like that Nen got to wrestle with it.. I also wanted to ask (and I've probably asked before but) do you know of anymore good LGBT+ webtoons or comics in general? I'd like to start reading more comics, but I only really like your writing I've noticed...

Thank you, nonnie! 

Honestly, I never thought Nen’s situation would be a big thing? I mean, I felt like his and Gawain’s (and all the characters’ struggles) were just real things, and in my headspace it seemed very normal to have such feelings and reactions.

It wasn’t until I got messages on the subject that I realized how many readers were able to relate to Nen in particular.

I mean, I’m sure I’m not the first to have such a character, but right now I’m just really glad he exists because he’s made me learn a lot of things about so many wonderful people <3

I don't understand why people are attacking you for being optimistic. I'm not, and I'm not planning to watch s7, but everyone gets to make their own decisions. I've had people be nasty to me, say I'm not a "true fan" (even though I watched loyally for 6 years). You make your own choices and don't let anyone tell you what to do, ok? Also, if you can share why you're optimistic about s7, I'd really be happy to hear it. ; ) I just want Emma to have her happy ending with Killian.

I’m sorry you’ve had nasty people come your way as well, Nonnie. You’re right - we all make our own choices, and no one should tell us that we are wrong for what we decide is best for us. I know people who go from one end of the spectrum to the other on this matter. I have friends who are excited like I am, friends in the middle who are waiting to see what happens before really reacting, and friends who have outright said S6 was where the show ended for them. And all those reactions/feelings are valid and should be respected. 

And I’d love to share why I’m optimistic about S7! 

It’s a combination of things, really. I know a lot of people don’t like or trust A&E but I do, at least to the extent of knowing they wouldn’t destroy the happy ending of the princess they created and nurtured for 6 years. A requel is scary but at the same really exciting! We’ve got some returning characters but a whole lot of brand new characters, and the concept of where they are taking it intrigues me. Say what you will about A&E but S1 was fairly spectacular story telling wise, and I think they’ll manage to get back to that when they aren’t trying to fit flashbacks in a tiny span of time for certain characters. They’ve essentially given themselves the ability to expand on the world they’ve already created and as a writer, that’s pretty awesome. I’m also excited to see adult Regal Believer and adult Captain Cobra interactions, both in the new EF and in HH!

I strongly and deeply believe you should keep writing for Damnatio Memoriae. I love the way you wrote the characters and just need more! I don't think I've read, no I know I haven't, anything like it. You used a different side of the characters and it was WOW!! So I hope you keep writing for it or add Kylo's perspective to it oooor like little stories within the same story PLLEEEAASSSE

Thank you nonnie! I’m glad you liked it, and that you enjoyed the characterization :D It’s… well, it’s not how I expect TLJ to go (at all), but the characterization is partly built on some of the things I expect to see, and I EXPECT SO MUCH WOW someone calm me down 

I can’t promise a sequel because… well, I do have a few ideas and I kept the ending as open as possible partly to make it easier to revisit that verse later, but I didn’t particularly plan for what happens next. There is a doc called renmnesia sequel leia id fic (i’m great with temporary titles). It’s not a straight-up sequel. It’s a Leia story of sorts, set after the events of damnatio and thematically linked to it, but it’s also barely 1k of messy, messy notes. I can’t guarantee it’ll pan out - I have a lot of docs like that, and a lot that ended up in the crap folder. And if I do something with it it’ll likely be slow, especially since i’m already working on other things that i really want to finish atm. 

So I can’t say much more than maybe. I’m decisive like that. I can promise that I’ll post about it here when I know for sure, but that’s all I can give for now. 

(As to writing Kylo’s perspective - not likely to happen, for a variety of reasons but mostly because 1) if i do this kind of diptych i want to go all the way and plan for mirroring structures and parallels and all that good stuff and 2) if i do write a follow-up I’d rather have his POV on things unspoiled. Supplementary snippets aren’t very likely either - that part of the story’s done for me. I might do some for drabble days tho it’s been way too long since I did one or ask memes if asked to, but that’s it.)

Hello! I just wanted to ask how significant you think it is that, after Sherlock works out the code, in ASiB Irene says,'I'm flattered', as Sherlock deduced the code from her measurements, to which he responds, 'Don't be', beacuse it kind of implies that he doesn't actually fnd her attractive (insinuating an attraction to men) and merely deduced what he could from her naked body rather than admiring her beauty. PS youR blog is AMAZING, annd that's why I wanted you thoughts, thanks :)

Hey Nonny!

You’ve read it absolutely correctly. Sherlock has no interest in women, ergo he only knows her measurements because she was standing buttfuck naked for the whole world to see. I’m sure he knows she is *supposed* to be attractive, but he doesn’t see her that way at all. I mean… When Sherlock “examines her” he only looks at her face, and then her as a whole. To check to see if his deductions are working, he fucking checks out John and ZOOMS THE FUCK INTO his eyes and lips and dear lord could this boy be any more besotted with John. They were there together to show the side by side of Sherlock’s interest; he’d rather check out a man closely than a woman, is all I’m saying. And this wasn’t the only time. He spent the entire wedding reception checking out men for Janine. Like, I don’t know how much more blatant you can get.

P.S. THANK YOU! :D

I was rewatching the last episode and you know how everyone is like "They must have only fed Shiro steroids when he was a Galran prisoner"? Well the Witch Haggar actually says something along the lines of "I made you strong" when Shiro is fighting her 1-v-1. So we can assume the Galrans made him the way he is on purpose, maybe so he would be better in fights. Also the thing where she mentions "You could have been our greatest weapon". The Galrans wanted Shiro to be powerful. Why? We don't know.

All I could think of nonny while reading this is Shiro basically getting a Galra super soldier serum a la Bucky Barnes style. That’s why he’s a walking muscle.

Maybe Haggar just wanted to appreciate the human physique. It can really only mean bad things down the road if Haggar is invested in something and it didn’t turn out the way she wanted it to.

anonymous asked:

(Part 1) Do you really hate Sterek or do you just hate the people that ship it? And if you hate the shippers, do you realize that we're all not the same. We don't hate Braeden(?) for "getting in the way of our OTP". We know that ppl can ship ppl for any reason they want, but we just wanted to know how the rest of the fandom is ok with the ship when Braeden saved Derek once while we get hate for mentioning how Stiles&Derek have saved each other multiple times.

Hi nonny, 
The short answer is that yes, I despise Sterek and everything fandom has turned it into. To me, it represents the gross abuse apologism/justification and erasure that constantly happens in the TW Sterek fandom.

Look, I’m fully aware that not every Sterek shipper contributes to this but the reason I get so angry, nonny, is because intense Sterek stans have the tendency to bully people out of tags built around having a safe place to rant. 

I once thought Teen Wolf Fandom Problems was a safe place to post about concerns I had surrounding Sterek. Instead of being respectful and asking me to remove the tag (replacing it instead with anti Sterek and/or lol Sterek), I got my feelings on the matter compared to a damaged car, and was told that I had no place voicing my opinion on the subject because my family’s PERSONAL EXPERIENCE with predators like Derek discredited the issue all together. 

Here’s the thing. You guys have shown your true colors time and time again. Erica, who was one of Derek’s first victims, was called a slut for kissing Derek. Jennifer got SO MUCH BACKLASH just for having a romance with Derek, before we even realized she was evil. People seriously wished her dead the moment they realized she was going to be his romantic interest.

And lets take a moment to talk about Scott, okay. Because every Sterek fic I’ve ever read takes Scott and turns him into this dumbed down puppy. They give all of his qualities to Stiles, they praise Stiles for things Scott is ruthlessly crucified for.

Stiles essentially tries to date rape Lydia? Oh your poor bb, look at his angst and how much he cares. Scott saves Allison from being raped? Gross, look at how he’s taking away her agency. Derek slams Stiles’ head into the steering wheel? aww, look at these two bbs. You know Stiles wanted it. Scott doesn’t answer the phone because he’s with his girlfriend? God, he’s such a terrible friend. He should just die. Stiles deserves so much better. Stiles asks Scott to focus on something other than the fact that two of their classmates are on the road to get killed, all because he wants to use Scott’s new found cool-kid status to get an in with Lydia? Aww, Stiles. Look how neglected you are. You need Derek to slam you into another wall. 

I could seriously list pages of this kind of behavior and it’s not right because this is Scott’s show and y'all have a habit of erasing him for your ship. Not only do you erase him, you shame him for the very things you praise your white boys for. 

The thing is. I totally get it. The kind of violence Derek represents can be exciting and fun for people who haven’t experienced the damage that can do first hand. I admit, I do like abusing characters and making them hurt. It’s the only reason I used to write fanfiction. But. And this is a really big but.

We, as writers and shippers have a responsibility to be respectful of other people’s boundaries. We have a responsibility to hold show-writers responsible for faulty narration. Go ahead, ship Sterek. But do not justify Derek’s abusive behavior because you can’t handle the fact that you are in love with a villain. Do not shame victims for being targeted by their abuser. And for the love of god, PLEASE don’t turn abuse into a joke. It’s not, and the fact that anybody in this fandom would accept it as one is really, really bad.

In the end, we’re not mad at you for liking Sterek. We’re angry because in the wake of your shipping, any tact you once had has disappeared. You’re stomping all over victims both fictional and real. You are silencing survivors when they try to speak out about why it’s wrong. No ship is worth that, and more importantly, no ship should have the power to empower abusers like that.

So when you tell Draeden shippers that they shouldn’t ship their ship because it’s got the same problems that Sterek does (unfounded chemistry, “they’ve only had one scene, why is nobody calling them out on that? Why do we get all the shit”)  you are wrong. Because while Sterek is founded on abuse, Draeden is founded on a badass female saving your precious woobie Derek. Also, Draeden is an adult. Who can and will defend herself if Derek ever got rough with her the way he does with Stiles. 

…. this got really passionate.

i know you love kaidan a lot so i want to know why? i don't want to make this a character hate post but after ME2 and the way he spoke to shepard, i didn't like him again. he didn't trust shepard and wouldn't listen to reason. why forgive him? i want to like him because he's sweet.

Well, let me ask you this then, Nonny. What’s there to trust? Nothing.

I know a lot of butthurt about Kaidan comes from the Horizon encounter in ME2, but here’s the thing. Kaidan shouldn’t trust Shepard. At. All. That’s the whole point. I know that you, like most players, love Shepard and know their motivations and why they’re doing what they do, but a self-centered reaction to the encounter not only leaves you, as the player, with the wrong take-away from the scene, but also less love for Kaidan - and Ashley - in general. 

But let’s look at the reality from Kaidan’s pov. First of all, Shepard’s been dead for 2 years and shows up out of the blue in a Cerberus ship with a Cerberus crew. And since ME1, you have known that Cerberus does horrific things. They torture, experiment on humans and aliens alike, kill lots of people, and generally do A Lot of Bad Shit. How would you react to that? Probably exactly like Kaidan did. You’d remember the experiments Cerberus did and think that they’d either cloned Shepard, which they DO in ME3, or that it’s some sort of ploy to take down people in the Alliance. And those are valid concerns. Cerberus is a certified terrorist organization, and Kaidan’s supposed to take it on faith that Shepard says something lame like, “oh, right, I’m not working for them, they’re working for me.” No thank you.

There is no reason for Kaidan, or anyone who knew Shepard, to believe what they say and trust that it’s real. If someone has no proof of their 2 year gap, no real explanation, and in bed with the Illusive Man, the smart people would run the hell away. Like Kaidan. Like Ashley. Sure, at the beginning of the encounter, Kaidan is surprised and relieved more than anything to see the Commander again, but then reality sets in and he realizes, “this could be a big, fat, cruel trap.” Which is the best and most natural reaction, given all the other factors he’s presented with.

And look, as the player of Shepard, you are supposed to feel a bit betrayed that Kaidan doesn’t trust you, but later on when the commander is talking to squad mates about it, they admit it’s a bit much to swallow after what they know about Cerberus. And Shepard doesn’t trust Cerberus or the missions, either. So, basically you and Kaidan are on the same page as far as Cerberus is concerned. It’s just that Kaidan can’t always sell his soul to the devil to justify the means to the end. He says, “the way a thing goes down matters. Later, when you have to live with yourself.” Integrity is so important to him. And it should be. He’s the voice of steady reason throughout the trilogy, and there is no reason to hate Kaidan because he won’t sacrifice his honor and integrity for anything. Because he believes there’s a better way. And so does Shepard. That’s why the commander leaves Cerberus after getting screwed over constantly by the Illusive Man. Shepard agrees with Kaidan in the end. Turns themself into the Alliance and goes to jail to make amends.

So, no, I don’t agree with people who dislike Kaidan because of Horizon. But as a gamer, I don’t need every other character to agree with and stand behind sketchy decisions completely on faith. It would have been nice for Kaidan to give the benefit of the doubt, but it also would have been a foolish move. And Kaidan’s smart and cautious. He doesn’t know what you know about what’s going on, and if you think about his situation for a minute, you really do come to understand that what he did was right and smart. 

Don’t expect everyone to always have your back in games like these. You’ve become a terrorist and unknown entity until Kaidan can suss out the details in ME3. Once Shepard proves they can be trusted. And the fact that he doesn’t take anything on blind faith is a good thing. It means his commitment is there when you earn it back. There’s a reason that once he’s with the commander, he’s loyal and you never have to do anything to keep that loyalty like all the other loyalty missions for other characters. That speaks volumes to his awesome character.

Moffat is callous now. Ruthless, I don't think so. Everyone dies but never doesn't truly dies. And its annoying as hell. River died-nope she is coming back. Clara died-nope she is going back. Like gah! He just keeps going for the shock factor but right now it doesn't even do that. I didn't feel any ounce of emotion when I watched the series premier

The problem with Moffat is that he doesn’t have a good writing range. He writes actions and explosions and B-Rated sci-fi storylines perfectly fine, but emotions and consequences are way out of his reach.

And we saw that right in the beginning, honestly. The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances were good episodes, but there were absolutely no consequences. The Doctor just hit a reset button and all the gas mask people were magically cured and everybody lived. And you know what? Back in series one, that was fine. It was new and different, not something we’d ever experienced before in New Who. And it was nice to see Nine, who was so weighed down by the consequences of his actions during the Time War, so happy and joyous and celebrating.

But now we’re going into our fifth season (dear god) of Moffat as the head writer, and he’s reused all of his silly little tropes (reset button, meeting the Doctor as a child and becoming obsessed with him, bringing everyone back from the dead) over and over and over and it’s boring. Those tropes are good as once offs (and even then not always – I thought the Doctor meeting Reinette as a child and her falling in love with him was creepy right from the get go so the fact that it keeps happening is just disturbing), but when they’re the only thing keeping your show going it gets old fast.

And there is absolutely no emotion in Moffat’s writing. It’s like he’s telling us we’re supposed to be sad, this is how we should feel about this scene, but we never do, because the writing lacks the depth to make us feel that way. Moffat is the ultimate example of telling rather than showing – he tells us we’re supposed to be sad about certain scenes rather than showing us why we should feel sad.

And that’s in part because we know his tropes. River’s introduction was her dying, but then we got two and a half seasons with her, an episode with her ghost, and now she’s coming back somehow in series 9 (and also she’s going to meet the Eighth Doctor which fuck that). So…yeah this character died but so what? First of all she died before we had any emotional connection to her anyways, and second Moffat’s just bringing her back from the dead so whatever.

I was suspicious when I heard Clara was going to die – because honestly, Moffat wouldn’t kill his precious snowflake companion. So that right there made it predictable – he was going to pretend to kill Clara and then bring her back. Which is honestly a stale move. I’ll admit I fell for that in series one when RTD “killed” Rose, but he’d spent an entire season killing off side characters (Jabe (among others in that episode), Gwyneth, multiple people in Dalek, Pete Tyler, Katrina (? I think that was her name?) in The Long Game), so yeah, of course I thought RTD was ruthless enough to kill Rose.

But we know Moffat won’t kill Clara because he won’t kill anyone. So his shock factor falls flat. And also that’s a horrible rip off of Rose “dying” in Bad Wolf, but at this point I’m used to that. He wants so desperately to make Clara his Rose, he can’t be bothered to write anything original for her that isn’t totally insulting. But that’s a story for another time.

Wow I went way off the rail. My apologies Nonnie.

anonymous asked:

I ship destiel but I don't want them to be together. Is that weird?? I mean, I want them to be happy but I don't think they CAN be happy together (and not just in a romantic way, as friends also). They make each other more sad than happy(more like destroyed on Cas's part). And I hate that Cas doesn't have anybody else because it gives me feeling that he is with them because he doesn't have anywhere else to go (I know he loves Dean and bla bla). It's TOXIC AF. Do you think they can be happy?

Hi, Nonnie! Actually, I have writen some meta on Castiel about something similar. (The meta is titled “I’ll stay with you because I want to, not because I have to”). That’s why I appreciated the fact that Cas was kicked out of the Bunker in season 9. Cas’ personal arc includes to make his own decisions (but that’s a subplot, so it’s still gonna take some time to get any kind of resolution).

In another post I’ve said this about Cas:

“Cas’ endgame is still a work in progress, but a very clear one. He had to be reset the same as Dean. Cas loved Heaven and his brothers and sisters. Despite everything, he thought Heaven was home. It isn’t like that anymore. Cas has slowly begun to learn that home is where the heart is. Where is Cas’ home? What does he want? He’s been asked twice now about his endgame. In 9x06, when Cas said he wanted to live, Ephraim asked him: “But as what, Castiel? As an angel? or a man?” Even though it couldn’t be clearer than that, Metatron became more obvious in 10x18 when he asked Cas:

“Who are you now? Like, you’re obviously not an angel of the lord. And what about all of this ‘walking the earth like Kane from Kung Fu’ crap? Cleaning up heaven’s messes. How many more rogue angels are there out there? And what are you gonna do once you’re done with all that? Go back to heaven? Please. The angel formerly known as Hannah has restored order up top. Smoothest it’s run since God cut the ribbon on the pearly gates. So tell me, Castiel, truly, what is your mission now?”

When the next antagonist (the Darkness) is finally defeated, when the show finally reaches its final season and its final episodes, we’re going to be given an answer. Castiel will have to choose. Right now he’s indecisive. He calls himself people, but he’s not, as Rowena pointed out when she said in 10x22: “That’s like a fish that wants to fly or a dog that thinks he’s people.” When Cas said that he, in fact, is a lot like people, Rowena’s reply was “Keep telling yourself that, dear.” Meaning? Cas is not human! He acts like he is, but he isn’t. That’s why I firmly believe that Castiel’s endgame will be to choose humanity.That’s been his weakness all along, anyway.”


In season 11, we have been given continuity. The angels have told Cas again that he’s NOT their brother because he always chooses the Winchesters. Despite things being spelled out clearly, in 11x06, we were clearly told that Castiel is still indecisive. How?

The woman on the news

 She said, “Ha ha! Ah… the dog thinks he’s people.” 

That was such a clever line. It’s exactly the same thing Rowena told Cas in 10x22. Cas continues to think that he’s a lot like people. Look at him! He’s even watching Netflix and junk TV, for god’s sake! But the truth is that Cas is NOT people. He’s an angel. A broken one. A scarred one. But an angel anyway. An angel that has rejected Heaven so many times that now Heaven rejects HIM.  

Right now Cas doesn’t have anywhere else to go, but he’s in that situation because he’s made his own decisions all the time. It’s the first time that he confidently says about the Bunker, “Why would I leave? I’ve got everything I need right here.” The Bunker means home to Cas (as I’ve already said in other meta). Do I think Cas can be happy there? Do I think Dean and Cas can be happy once the series ends? Yes, I totally do. (Really… you should read this post).

Hi Bri :) Despite amazing Olicity chemistry, do you think producers and writers will be insistent about idea of Laurel-Canary and Arrow because of comics? I know Felicity will be in the comics and there will be an Olicity date and Palmer and jealousy but on the other hand Katie's begun training and with Oliver's records about women so I am not sure about these three in a romantic way. I want Olicity BADLY and their endgame but with a Canary-Laurel on the way.. I don't know. What do you think? Xo

Anonymous #2 (combining 2 separate asks because my answer is the same): “After I see all these fucking AMAZING Olicity moments and their potential perfect love life and smirks and happiness, I can’t handle if writers decide going with Canary-Arrow romance again. I just can’t Bri. Cause Olicity is the name of PERFECTION right know. Just saying. I am not OK as you see.”

May I present to you Oliver Queen’s heartiest heart eyes when looking at Felicity Smoak (not my gifs):

The End(game).

Post that I wrote a few days ago on the topic of revisiting the romantic relationship between Oliver and Laurel. [x]
