World War Z!Richonne AU

Life for former United Nations investigator Michonne Philippe seemed content.  She made the choice to quit her position at the UN and take an indefinite break from her long-time boyfriend, Michael Anthony. It was a much needed emotional reset on her life. Putting an end to her dangerous, globetrotting career, Michonne was looking forward to living in a less emotionally complicated world.

Though complication found her once again one seemingly normal afternoon as she sat stuck in gridlocked traffic. She soon realized it wasn’t just an ordinary jam when the city suddenly erupted into chaos. Michonne witnessed citizens run through the streets chased by formerly healthy people who changed into vicious, unthinking and feral creatures from a single bite.

Barely escaping the turmoil, Michonne was called by her former boss, U.N. Deputy Secretary General Hershel Greene. He persuaded her to return to duty and go on an investigative mission to find what turned the world on it’s head.

She arrived by military escort to a U.S. Navy aircraft stationed off the coast of Georgia, where a team of scientists and military personnel were analyzing the scope of the worldwide outbreak. Upon arrival, Michonne was greeted by someone she thought she left in her past. Seeing him again brought back the past emotional turmoil in her heart, as the complicated feelings she’d ran from when she left the UN, came back to the forefront.

UN Soldier Rick Grimes was the most intense man she’d ever met. For ten years they were paired together on missions that often caused them to blur the lines between personal and professional. Seeing him again added to the stress of the already precarious global situation.

Forced to work together again, Rick and Michonne must lead a worldwide search for the source of the infection before it’s too late to save human civilization.

Why Netflix?? Then the season would all come out at once and we'd have to wait like a year for a new one and smh itd be so bad

Because it would give them the freedom to address more mature stuff but retain viewers. I know a lot of people consider Freeform to be teen based or not kid friendly so I could see losing younger viewers with a switch over there. Plus gmw crew would still have to deal with network bs. But gmw on Netflix would give them the freedom to make it more mature without the rep of being on a teen/older network and losing the kid demo. And with the way taping info gets out in this fandom, being able to binge at once might not be such a bad thing.

Also Freeform (aka formerly Abc family) is the network that cancelled Kyle XY on a cliffs hanger and decided to keep Secret Life instead (okay high school me is still bitter, I just wanted a decent ending gah)

The artist formerly known as Bow Wow says he can't relate to the civil rights struggle because he's "mixed."

Kristen Stewart Gets Personal: 'I'm So Much Happier' Dating Women
“I’m just really in love with my girlfriend.

Kristen Stewart opened up about her personal life in a new interview this week, revealing that she is “so much happier” dating women ― publicly confirming her sexuality for the first time.

The big moment happened during an interview with Elle UK when the “Twilight” star spoke about her relationship with girlfriend Alicia Cargile and her journey to being more open in how they define themselves together.

Stewart, who was formerly linked to “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson, told Elle UK that she felt the need to hide everything she did when she was dating men “because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialized… We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that.”

Stewart told Elle UK that when she began dating women, she worried keeping her personal life hidden communicated that she was ashamed of the nature of her relationships.

“It changed when I started dating a girl,” she continued. “I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I’m so much happier.’”

In the Elle UK interview, Stewart also states that she is incredibly happy in her current relationship with Cargile. “I think also right now I’m just really in love with my girlfriend,” she says. “We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again.’”

I’m just so glad that you are happy, KStew! Living your truth is so important. 

Miss Major Is A Trans Elder And Stonewall Icon…And She’s Changing The World

It’s been almost fifty years since the historic night at the Stonewall Inn that many people cite as the beginning of the mainstream fight for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights. Decades later, one trans activist who was present the night of the riots is still fighting for the rights and survival of transgender and gender-nonconforming people.

Miss Major is a community leader ― an organizer, activist, prison abolitionist, former sex worker, formerly incarcerated person, transgender elder and mother to countless transgender and GNC youth. She’s built a legacy recognized globally, particularly with her work with incarcerated transgender individuals. Her tireless efforts as an activist and respected elder in the community have not only saved countless lives but paved the way for modern day trans and GNC people operating in the public spotlight and fighting for queer people on a national level. Her legacy has even inspired an award-winning documentary called MAJOR!, currently making its rounds at film festivals.

In this interview with The Huffington Post, Miss Major reflects on her work over the decades, the history of the Stonewall Riots and how we can move away from a system of mass incarceration towards one of harm reduction.

Here is the theatrical poster for The Blackcoat’s Daughter (formerly known as February). The horror-thriller will be be released exclusively on DirecTV on August 25, prior to hitting select theaters and VOD on September 30 via A24.

Written and directed by Oz Perkins (son of Psycho star Anthony Perkins), the film stars Emma Roberts (American Horror Story), Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), Lucy Boynton (Sing Street), Lauren Holly (Dumb and Dumber), and James Remar (Dexter).

You can watch the festival trailer here. Expect a theatrical trailer in the near future.

The Blackcoat’s Daughter centers on Kat (Kiernan Shipka) and Rose (Lucy Boynton), two girls who are left alone at their prep school Bramford over winter break when their parents mysteriously fail to pick them up. While the girls experience increasingly strange and creepy occurrences at the isolated school, we cross cut to another story—that of Joan (Emma Roberts), a troubled young woman on the road, who, for unknown reasons, is determined to get to Bramford as fast as she can. As Joan gets closer to the school, Kat becomes plagued by progressively intense and horrifying visions, with Rose doing her best to help her new friend as she slips further and further into the grasp of an unseen evil force. The movie suspensefully builds to the moment when the two stories will finally intersect, setting the stage for a shocking and unforgettable climax.

New Username

Hey guys,

I have a new username, I go by purple-reign18 now. My previous username jointfighter501 was more of a typo when I first started on Tumblr, I ran along with it for quite a while now, but I thought It would be a lot better if I chose something new, something different that I would be a lot more comfortable with.


I was inspired by these bloggers that they too blog about Strike Witches and have completely different usernames as well. Check out their blogs, they’re pretty awesome and worth following too!!

Thank you for the Inspiration:

Val Royeaux. Any resident, a “Royan,” will say it is the greatest city in the world. Many take such pride for arrogance, but they do so through smiles as they nod in agreement, for such is the cost of doing business in the capital. Val Royeaux is in every way a world leader—in commerce, culture, and its own exaggerated beauty.

The site was founded during Evrion’s grand unification, the result of a mix of influences not such much balanced as driven together. And while such an amalgamation would be cause for chaos elsewhere, the prosperity of the region has enabled an upward spiral of indulgence. The capital has endured the ages to become a beacon of civilization, and its citizens the measure of modernity.

—Excerpted from Val Royeaux: Excesses Grand and Otherwise by (formerly) Sister Laudine

to any disabled person who may now be doubting their worth or if they deserve to exist:

you do deserve to exist, you have every right to be here and to take up space and live a life that makes you happy!

your worth is inherent, no one – especially abled people – can determine it for you or take it away, you will always have worth! it is not based on your abilities and how much you can contribute to our capitalist society!

you are a person worthy of love and respect, this i know with all of my heart.
