everyone's entitled to my opinion

me: it’s okay if people dislike my favorite character. everyone is entitled to their own opinion

person: *dislikes my favorite character*

me:

Can we talk about Finn for a minute? I keep reading that Finn gets described as “flat” or “boring” by some in the Star Wars fandom. Obviously everyone’s entitled to their opinion. But I’ll tell you, from my perspective? He’s one of the most unique, charismatic Star Wars characters out there. 

1. Finn humanized stormtroopers. Made us experience panic and terror at the terrible choices they have to make. Stormtroopers, who were practically a joke in the other movies - white plastic statutes that existed just to get shot and clatter into a pile.

2. Finn’s flight with Poe Dameron is an explosion of emotion. That scene blew me away. Both of them had so much fun with it, and you can see Finn feel the real impact of having a name, rather than being a number. 

3. Finn is profoundly empathetic and protective. Hell, I swear he cares about BB8 when he has to describe the plane crash, and Poe’s “death”, to the droid. 

4. Finn shows tremendous range in this movie. Traumatized (stormtrooper battle), jocular (”you got a boyfriend?”), joyous (”that’s one hell of a pilot”), wistful (”Take care of yourself. Please.”), angry (ligthsaber battle), I could go on. I like Luke Skywalker as much as the next fan, but I think Finn shows more range in this one film than Luke did in all three. 

5. Finn’s story arc is powerful, subversive, and inspiring. Going from a number to a name. Finding a family after being taken from his home as a child. Turning his back on the First Order and then realizing he needs to go further, and embrace the cause of the Resistance.

6. Finn’s relationship with Rey. I’m gonna get choked up about this, so I’ll just say John Boyega is an amazing actor, and I loved every scene he had with Daisy Ridley. 

Anyway that’s my fangirling contribution. To me, Finn’s amazing.

You were really fucking rude to my friend there. "everyone is entitled to their opinion" except when it's something you don't agree with, eh? In the future make your own goddamn post about how great all these fuckin remakes are. The "new post" button is right up there at the top of your dash.

I’m very sorry if I came across as rude. I was always under the impression that the reblogging and adding of comments was a fairly common thing to do. You’ll also notice I didn’t say that anyone wasn’t entitled to have a particular opinion, only that I personally find that brand of negativity rather unnecessary. I didn’t think that expressing MY dissenting opinion would be met with such hostility.

And with all due respect, I’m not the one cursing someone out on anon. 

To those who struggle

One thing I’ve fond with many (not all) of new age witch craft and spells online is that they don’t work. All though progression into being modern is good if one strays away from the traditions of the craft the workings will be insufficient (my beliefs everyone is entitled to their own opinion in this matter). So heres some tips to bring a tad bit of tradition into your work and hopefully help it be more effective

  • In the beginning of your spell or ritual call on a related god/goddess

  • call to the elements (you don’t have to go all out if you don’t want just use your voice)

  • speak in rhyme (rhythm and rhyme have magic in them self)

  • follow the moon phases in correlation to their magic energy

  • thank the god/goddess you called on

utmost delicacy

summary: Sometimes, she was amazed at the gentle atmosphere that had formed between them; and how she would never trust someone to the same degree again.
a/n: I love the quiet moments in-between the chaos that demonstrate the trust that those wonderful kids have for one another. Consider this to be a post-reveal story, and I do hope you all enjoy. ^_^ (Also, I’m aware that Ladybug’s Luck Charm technically negates injuries caused by Akuma… eh, let’s just forget that little bit of canon.)


“Delivering you to your room, offering to bandage up your wounds… perhaps a kiss from yours truly would grant your heart’s desire, my Lady?”

Marinette barely concealed a snort, however, she was careful to avoid another shot of pain from her bloodied shoulder. Adrien, blinked out from his Chat Noir persona, sighed a little under his breath as he went to ready another spray-bottle of iodine.

It had been her own fault. The one second she took her eyes of the Akuma to check if her friends were safe, and she had been knocked against a sharp-piece of debris that had dug small glass shards into her shoulder before she had transformed into Ladybug.

The rest of the fight had been… difficult, to say the least. 

Night had fallen by the time they had managed to get the victim under control, and it was under the cover of that same darkness that Chat Noir had brought her back home, and was now keeping his voice down as he played doctor.

“I’m going to need to get the rest of the shards out, okay?”

Marinette winced at the thought. “I thought I got them all out?”

“Not quite.” He pointed. “Some of them have been embedded slightly under the skin. I’ll need to get them out, and you need to remain still, Princess.” He squeezed her hand gently. “I’ll be as gentle as I can, alright?”

Marinette nodded. “Just… get it over with.”

Yo I’m seeing some nasty words bein thrown about regarding Judes reaction to being called gay and like. People are blaming him for being upset? Really? Okay.

I’m a girl who is dating a girl, but I’m a person who identifies as bisexual on a good day but mostly only likes to use the word queer. When people assume my sexuality? Ask if I’m a lesbian? It makes me hella uncomfortable. Why? I don’t know, I just know that I’m not a lesbian; that’s not the word I associate with myself. And it pisses me off and makes me feel wrong and upset when I get labeled as something I’m not.

So yeah, Jude had a right to be pissed off that all of a sudden everyone was gonna start labeling him something he doesn’t think he is. Not to mention the shock of being outed when he didn’t even want that yet. He got scared, and he thought his best course of action was to make sure people didn’t label him as gay before he even figured out what a good label for himself was. He’s 13. Come on. This stuff is hard to deal with even when you’re older than that.

As for Connor, he KNEW Jude didn’t want to be out, and as proud of him I am for sticking up for himself and being proud of who he his, he could have denied it. Or he could have outed himself and not Jude. Connor didn’t necessarily do much wrong in my eyes, but he set himself up for Judes reaction. If you wanna go on about how Jude embarrassed Connor, take a moment to understand Judes situation and how embarrassed and confused and scared he was in that moment.

I love both of them, and I’m proud of them both for different reasons, and I’m really hoping that the show focuses a bit more on Judes mindset on what he is and who he likes and what he wants to use as a label, because it’s such an important thing that people are starting to acknowledge that there is more than just gay and straight.

Taylor Swift is an incredible hard worker woman that encourage her fans to be the best they can be. Im going to be as nice as possible with any person even if I desagree with them. Everyone its entitled to an opinion, and Im respectful because of my idol and role model.

I’m sorry but I’m going to rant quickly. Taylor put on the biggest show of her career last night in Sydney. Her vocals were amazing, she was full of energy and she engaged the crowd - it was by far the best of all her previous tours (in my opinion). Whilst everyone is entitled to their opinion, to complain about not having a special guest is a bit rude. I understand hoping for one and perhaps being a little disappointed if you REALLY got your hopes up, but to be “outraged” is ridiculous. Obviously the title is somewhat misleading because the fans that they quoted didn’t seem angry at all, but I was browsing Twitter and saw some people who were at the show (that aren’t Swifties) saying that there should’ve been one and it wasn’t fair. It’s called a special guest for a reason. End rant.
