end of ooc post

a big part of my love for near came from the fact that i first watched death note when i was like nine and didn’t even know i was autistic, and certainly never saw any positive representation, and near was one of the first times i ever saw a character who was “different” the same way i was. and i latched onto him immediately because there was a character in this amazing anime who was LIKE ME in this nebulous way i didn’t yet understand.

i cosplayed him at one of my first ever conventions (lugging around a surprising amount of my bionicle collection in a backpack because I LIKED LEGOS AND HE LIKED LEGOS), i drew him dozens of times in sketchbooks sadly lost to time and moving house, i got into vicious and very immature fights on gaia online message boards with the many, many people in the 2006 death note fandom who hated his guts, i picked up practically all his mannerisms because i wanted to be just like him (to this day, eleven or so years later, i stim by twirling my hair ALL THE TIME. i had forgotten where that came from until i rewatched death note in 2015.) i have a very vivid memory of hearing about it as soon as they cast his english voice and telling all my unenthusiastic friends about it at school the next day because i was SO EXCITED. near was so important to me as a kid and rewatching the anime as an educated adult and seeing how overtly coded as autistic he is makes that all the more meaningful to me now.

so like, this is why i’ll insist that near is canonically autistic. and… representation is important.

When Hamilton fans tell me they don’t like hip-hop, I have gotten these arguments…

“Hip-hop doesn’t really tell a story like Hamilton does…”

Please.

Do.

Continue.

*eye twitch*

“They use the N-Word all the time and just talk about bitches, money, and shallow stuff…”


“It’s just all degrading to women…”

A valid argument for many songs, but…

“OKAY, it’s just not the style of music I like! I grew up with showtunes and that’s what I’m into!”

Me: THAT’S ALL YOU HAD TO SAY

Smacked Down Hamilfan: Okay. *pause* ONE MORE THING—


Note: If you’ve never really listened to classic hip-hop/rap, please listen to these songs. They’re some of my faves. And if the n-word bothers you, Biggie’s song is the only song in this rec list that uses it. Also, that song, though amazing, could be triggering so you can skip on that one if you want.

A little twist on the “hOOOoooOo shit, so you’re the older sibling my best friend always talks about hahah wow tHEY NEVER BOTHERED TELLING ME YOU WERE THIS HOT” au (x) because I’m meant to be revising. (I promise this one isn’t a rickroll!) Please ignore the spelling mistakes. [on ao3]

Patience has never been a virtue Lily Evans possessed so when the door opens to Sirius’ apartment, five minutes after she rung the bell she’s checked her watch eleven times and is tapping her foot obnoxiously. She doesn’t wait to see who it is when the door opens, just pushes past and starts speaking.

“This is fucking ridiculous Black!” She starts, heading to the kitchen. “Sixth time this week I’ve had to wake you up. I’m not going to do this next time. The lectures start at eleven and if you miss them, on your head be it. Have you even had breakfast yet?” Lily takes a breath and turns away from the open fridge door to see why Sirius hasn’t interrupted with any awful excuses yet. What she sees is not Sirius looking affronted and tired. 

Instead there’s a completely different unnecessarily tall black haired boy, still with his hand on the door handle. He’s looking at the redhead in bewilderment, other hand apparently stuck in his hair. A pair of glasses rest lopsidedly on his nose, one arm not quite tucked behind his ear. Hazel eyes squint at her from behind the lenses, obviously confused and either scared or aroused. Shit, Lily thinks, trying to figure out if she’s walked into the wrong apartment. Barging past him she’d only spared the person a glance, taken in their height, and continued. God, you’re an idiot.

“Um..” Finally the guy takes his hand from his hair, “Do I know you?” In that moment Lily is very grateful that the fridge is providing a breeze of cool air because she’s never, in all her twenty one years, heard a voice that’s made her want to drop her pants and have her way with with someone as much as his.

Hello guys, mun here. It occurred to me that I’ve never tried to style my Italy wigs so they look like his hair actually is in the anime. So I sorta tried it out, these pictures are without hairspray in them since it’s very warm and I’ll probably finish the styling completely (cutting ends and hairpsraying) when the weather stops being so Damn warm.

Anyways what do you think? Do you like this style or prefer the old one?

//Wow look I write something new!! I’ll add to my list eventually!//

proper and in-character reconciliation between anders, fenris, and merrill 2k15

woke up wanting to keep stiles and clark on their main blogs, but also making a multi that i can hop to every so often. at first, i was considering putting killian on the multi, and adding chars that i’ve been wanting to write over on there. but i decided otherwise for now, and he’ll stay solo also. i’ve had such a hard time getting kil’ to cooperate in the past few months, so maybe i just need somewhat of a fresh start. apart from cleaned up posts, i need to clean up my dash, and drafts. it’s literally been months. honestly i might even just change his url.
