Activist Erika Andiola is one of an estimated 1.8 million undocumented immigrants who entered the country as children.
Called “Dreamers” — after the DREAM Act (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors) — this group was granted temporary legal status under the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Throughout President Barack Obama’s tenure, a handful of Dreamers like Andiola have become well-known critics of U.S. immigration policy, advocating on behalf of the estimated 12 million people in the country without authorization.
As Trump cracks down on illegal immigration, the most visible among them fear retribution from the administration for speaking out.
They have reason to be wary. While Trump has said DACA recipients will not be targeted in his deportation crackdown, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has already arrested several Dreamers — at least two of whom remain in custody.
Even if Dreamers are safe, almost all of them have family members in the United States who are eligible for deportation.
Despite those risks, several Dreamers with high profiles told Mic that they were not about to let his election keep them from speaking out. Read more (3/3/17 2:14 PM)

✓ Ice by @galaxystiel ‘After an accident takes away Dean’s future in competitive figure skating, his relationship with Castiel suffers.’
✓ You May Say That I’m a Dreamer by @envydean ‘High School AU: Dean’s been a fan of the men’s figure skating for as long as he can remember. He’s always been fascinated by how the contestants move on the ice, contort their elegant bodies into beautiful positions and land each jump with grace – not that anyone at school knows this, they only know Dean as the tough-man soccer player. When Dean’s favorite under twenty-one’s figure skater transfers to his school, sparks fly.’
✓ Icy What You Did There by @whelvenwings ‘When Charlie drags Dean along to a local ice rink, he’s not expecting to have a good time. But when he gets out onto the ice, he happens to meet someone - and he very quickly starts seeing things from a whole different angle.’
✓ Untitled by @thekingslover ‘Dean and Cas going on an ice skating date, but Cas has never gone before and can’t skate at all but he doesn’t want to tell Dean because he doesn’t want to admit he can’t skate.’
✓ A Dedicated Hugwritten by me. ‘In which Dean Winchester watches that show about ice skating because Charlie keeps bugging him about it, and Cas tags along. (AKA Dean and Cas watch yoi and exchange their thoughts on Victor and Yuuri’s relationship.)’
Being in the Dragon Age fandom and the Sarah J. Maas fandom can be the funniest shit ever.
Like when a text post mentions Dorian or Morrigan without any specific information about them.
Is it snarky-gloriously-gay Dorian Pavus, or Cinnamon-Roll-kinky-witch-man Dorian Hallivard?
Is it Dreamer-High-Fae Morrigan, or Witch-of-the-Wilds Morrigan?
We may never know.
-When high on pain medication, you let a secret slip out in front of both Winchesters.-
Sam x Reader
Warnings: Nothing really, mostly fluff. Use of pain medication (administered by a nurse)?
A/N This is my first ever fic, so feedback is welcomed. This is my @idreamofhazel and @impala-dreamer‘s 1k/2k ‘Sammy Says’ Writing Challenge. (They are both seriously amazing so if you aren’t following them go check them out!!) My Prompt was: “You’re confusing reality with porn again.“ - this will be italicized in the text.
*I do not own or claim any of the gifs/characters.
So without further ado, here is High; my first ever fic!
Pain radiates up your right side, reminding you that something is not right with your body. You take a deep breath and squeeze your best friend’s hand tightly, “Sammy, if I don’t survive this, I just want you to know that hunting with you and Dean have been the best years of my life.”
Sam smiles down at you softly, but Dean’s snort from the other side of the hospital room tells you that he’s feeling less than sympathetic for your predicament.
“You’re getting an appendectomy, Y/N, you’re not dying.” He rolls his eyes and shuffles his feet.
“You don’t know that!” You throw your arms into the air dramatically, “They could leave a surgical instrument in my stomach; I hear they do that a lot more than people think.”
