How would Sanvers tell the superfam that they're engaged?

It’s actually an accident, when their ragtag friends-turned-family found out. Oh, James knew Maggie was planning to propose on their second we-saved-the-world-now-fuck-off vacation. And Kara avoided Maggie for the entire week before they left on their trip so that she wouldn’t spill the beans about Alex’s plans.

They actually, annoyingly, had very similar plans. Maggie almost ate her ring, while Alex nearly choked on hers when she took a nervous swallow of her champagne.

They agreed it was very important to leave that part out of the retelling.

After the crying and the stuttered, sappy proposals (and the celebration sex), they lay on their little beach bungalow’s outdoor canopy bed, wrapped in soft sheets and moonlight, admiring the reflection of the moon off their rings and discussing when and whom to tell first. It was agreed that they’d tell everyone when they got back, because there was a week and a half of their vacation left, and they had some friends with impulse control issues and the ability to fly.

That was the plan, anyway.

Alex can’t decide whether to blame Facebook’s app or Maggie’s wandering hands.

They had been posting various pics throughout their vacation, all with the help of the little bar of most recent photos at the top of the app. Alex thought she’d been pretty thorough in removing all incriminating photos (Maggie draped in moonlight was fucking gorgeous, okay?) into their own little folder.

It wasn’t even a bad photo, actually. Maggie took it with Alex’s phone because it had the better camera. Just a shot of their intertwined hands against a backdrop of the red tablecloth at dinner, the candlelight reflecting off gold and polished rock so prettily.

She didn’t mean to post that one.

But she was posting the rest of the day’s tourism photos on the way back and Maggie got handsy at the door, and then handsy down her pants, and well, Alex must have accidentally hit that one too, before tossing her phone down.

She didn’t realize her mistake until morning, when she looked for her phone to find it dead from constant calls.

Because of course Kara noticed the one photo slipped among the rest. She’d liked and commented on nearly every photo they’d taken while away. And of course, as any excited sister would, she tagged everyone they knew in her congratulations.

When the phone finally turned back on, Alex had thirty-two missed called from Kara, two from her mother, and one from each of the boys and her space dad. She didn’t bother going through the 283 texts and group messages (most of them were emoji chains).

Maggie laughed herself off the bed. “I mean, buttposting is certainly one way to tell them, Danvers.”

Alex is just thankful that Kara was smart enough to wait for them to show up at the restaurant down the beach for brunch rather than barging in on them mid-celebratory coitus. Again.

If you needed more evidence that Jackson's mom is a huge bitch

She called him today during work, yelling at him (you can hear her through the phone even when it isnt on speakerphone) because he didnt call her on Mothers day (already a laugh) and he replied “well you kinda tell me to die in one way or the other whenever we talk and i wanted to avoid that.” and how did she respond? She told him to kill himself.

Mom of the year 10/10

Dont ever tell me there is never a reason to call a woman a bitch cause you will never convince me with her.

Can we not?

Would it be even slightly possible for people to stop whining about the evils of social media? I’m not saying it’s always a positive thing, but I’m (in particular) sick of seeing all the “OMG Facebook/Snapchat/Tumblr/Twitter is like a drug!” memes and images.

Just no. Facebook, for all its flaws, isn’t going to cause you to have delirium tremens if you skip out on it for a day. It won’t result in you having a seizure if you spend to much time posting. You don’t risk dying every time you use Snapchat because you’re unsure if it’s pure or not. You won’t have a stroke from too much Tumblr, nor are there dirty Twitter needles floating around playgrounds.

It’s the most enraging when people have the gall to compare having a Facebook account to using heroin in particular. I’m not sure if I’m really getting my point across, but this whole “social media is like a drug” thing is just disturbing and infuriating to me because I’ve known so many people who were felled or destroyed their lives with, y’know, actual drugs

And the people who say this stuff don’t seem to even consider the fact that it’s ridiculous, pointless hyperbole that undermines the actual suffering caused by situations like the heroin epidemic in our communities. I’m pretty liberal about drug use when it comes to things like marijuana and psychedelics, but there’s a big difference between that, Facebook, and actual goddamn heroin

It’s kind of weird and synchronous when I run across these asinine posts, too, because I’ve been intensely researching what real hard drugs do to people and communities as part of my preparation for finish my short story the involves characters using said drugs. Pretty disturbing research, at that.

I can damn well bet the folks making memes like the one above have never actually studied the effects of hard drugs on the body or the epidemic and its roots, and probably do live in a little bubble of where spending too much time on Facebook is the worst concern they have.

Current status

Deleting racist friend-of-friend comments and rethinking this whole “it’s been a year since you’ve made non-art posts on Facebook and your real life relationships are probably suffering for that, surely you can find a way to talk about your life and re-engage with people” idea.

Hi Ingrid! I read in another blog that noorhelm is like 10 times more popular than evak in Scandinavia and that us William skeptics are mostly limited to Tumblr and Twitter. Is that true?

I would NOT say that noorhelm is 10 times more popular than evak no, but sadly the Facebook fandom is the worst when it comes to defending Billy. This includes the international fandom too, but Norwegian fans are even more apologetic. Most of the international fans came because of Evak, and most of them are rational and feminists, while most of the Norwegian fans started watching because they could relate to Eva and to Noora, which was the intention, and it makes sense that they don’t think William is an asshole because that’s what Julie wants us to think. I think. Maybe. It’s a weird ass way to do it though.

anonymous asked:

why would people say that those are spoilers??? what??

Because apparently “I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet” = spoilers. The tumblr fandom luckily is pretty unuioned about that, but I’ve gotten more and more complains lately :p the Facebook fandom is the worst. they’ll say it’s a spoiler (when exactly is it not a spoiler then???) and then they’ll post a picture of the filming saying that it’s not a spoiler… don’t get their logic man

I will never understand why people post their entire lives on Facebook. I totally getting needing to vent, but Facebook is probably the worst place imaginable? You’re really only posting it in hopes that everyone will agree with you and tell you how right you are, and if anyone dares to disagree, they’re in the wrong, because you’re allowed to post what you want on your Facebook. And if you’re not complaining about your life, you’re giving everyone your entire schedule as if they care what time of day you brushed your teeth. Facebook is only good for the memes and food videos.

Oh my goodness!! I thought ppl were kidding when they said youtube & facebook is worst place for sakura bloggers. The amount of biased bullshit they sprout over there surprised me, how can most of the western fandom be delusional to this extent?? double4aniime & foreverworld are the biggest hypocrites on earth they wank hinata to infinity while they desperately try to comeup with new BS reasons to diss sakura..i am not even going to talk abt the comment section.. yuck!!!

the comment sections are always a place you shouldn’t look into as a Sakura fan. and the people you’ve mentioned only naturally attract people who think similar.

Hey Ruby, I think you and your artwork are ace but I was just wondering how do you cope if someone decides to be negative about it? I've just had some work re-posted on an Instagram pun account and there's so many people just being major douchebags :/ Just trying to figure out how to deal with em, any advice you have would be smashing. Once again, I think you're totes ace!! :)

Helloo, good question. I cope with it in the following ways:

1. Not replying/blocking users - real hate and trolling isn’t worth responding to. If any comments on my work come in the form of personal attacks or are particularly persistent or abusive I block them. Simple. You never owe anyone a reply, but if you are going to respond to mild idiotic saltiness/passive aggression the best way to do it is in a non-inflammatory way. Here’s an example picture

2. Perspective - not everyone is going to like your work and that’s okay. The way I see it is if you’ve managed to provoke any sort of emotional response with your artwork - positive or negative - that’s a good thing. Indifference is the real nightmare. I mean yes, leaving non-constructive negative comments is the act of a numpty and they can absolutely go lick a wall, but in terms of what you take away from it that’s how I try to frame things. 

3. Keep making! - don’t let negative comments snowball in your mind and put you off doing yer thing. If a comment is really bothering you, shut the computer down, put the kettle on and go and do something else in the real world for a bit. Keep posting things online and enjoy sharing your work with those who get it. 

best of luck xo
