People keep trying to tell me that now detention is done Anti is dead but if Anti was dead why did Jack post a picture of himself with his gauges on IG with no caption for an hour? Why is he still reblogging Anti fan art? Jack doesn't screw us around, he wouldn't let us get this hyped about nothing. Something is happening and it will be big, I just know it

Exactly what I was thinking.

He also reblogged an Anti gif and put in the tags “wait for me” and, like you said, Jack wouldn’t do that for shits and giggles. He’s probably planning something, just…I don’t know when itll be, especially with how things have been going as of late

BUT WHEN IT DOES ITLL BE GRAND

in the emergency room

me, waking up from a daze: oh… my head.. awgh

doctor: okay.. she’s coming back.. can you hear me? who are you?

me: vers bottom but honestly i just go with what feels right in the moment and to be honest i’m inexperienced enough that i can’t say for sure, that’s just what comes to mind when i think about it, i mean i’ve only been with like three people in that way, i’m still figuring myself out and what i’m comfortable with and all that and who knows how i’ll change? just having someone in the bed with me is more important than the specifics of how we’re in the bed i feel like, at least for now

doctor: i said who are you not what are you

me: oh. im jack centipeetle. what happened?

doctor: you choked on a chicken tender

me: not again….

My thoughts on Susan Williams

Susan is smart and already knew Oliver is The Green Arrow, so why would she ask him to confirm/ deny it, she has enough evidence. What she doesn’t know is who works with the GA.
Oliver And Felicity were a public couple and you would have to have been living under a rock not to know that Felicity worked for Palmer Tech and knows computer science.
Think about what Susan said when she told Oliver she lost her job
It was obviously a hacker
The timing was suspicious.
What if this was just her trying to find out if Felicity worked with GA/Oliver??
Now she knows and I don’t think she’s going to stop until she’s uncovered the whole team

anonymous asked:

Why does the cynic in me think this reduction of Willa was Arrow's way of ensuring Felicity was the unquestioned female lead this season? Pretty sure Willa was getting billed above EBR in previous seasons, but by making her not a full regular this time that might have been changed. Don't know if anyone's checked what order the names appear in anymore...

Personally, I think Willa asked for less episodes in negotiations and perhaps a “holiday” break in the back half. I’m not sure how the industry works in terms of actors and their contracts, but Marc said something about writing around that fourteen episode count which suggests to me it’s not really his choice. 

I still just think it’s bullshit how they’re handling it. You have Willa — the current female lead of the show who has been there since day one — and you know she’s only going to be in fourteen episodes, but you’re not going to give her a greater focus for the time she is here? It’s become a joke how this show treats its cast and characters. 

anonymous asked:

how do you go about researching things? you're so eloquent and put together in your arguments and you're so knowledgeable - I'd love to be able to research and defend things i'm interested in like you do

i think it’s a combination of 3 things really -

1) i was lucky enough to study a degree which just happened to touch on a lot of my interests - various modules i studied covered everything from queer history to the inner workings of the film and tv industries to veganism, so i had access to excellent resources and tuition on subjects i’m interested in

2) i’m good at googling. it doesn’t usually take me long to find credible sources for anything really because i know what to search for and i’m pretty good at distinguishing the good sources from the bad. again i think this is probably due to my time at uni, especially when i was working on my final year play and my dissertation which were entirely independent projects so i had to research everything myself… i’m not sure if it’s even something i could explain, it’s just second nature to me now really, so all i can say is practice, it’ll come in time

3) i listen to people. i’m very stubborn by nature and i used to find it extremely hard to listen to other people’s points of view when they contradicted my own, and honestly i still find it hard sometimes, but looking back on the past few years i’ve learnt so much from people i used to strongly disagree with and i think i’m a better and smarter person for it. i’ve also learnt not to disregard people based on things like age - i might know more about lots of things about life than a 15-year-old, but if they’re a trans 15-year-old or a black 15-year-old or a 15-year-old with a particular disability that i don’t have then they’re always going to know more than me about things, and there’s nothing shameful about being educated by someone who traditionally you’d expect to be the one being educated by you. once you get used to listening to people’s experiences and opinions, learning becomes much easier - and even if you don’t agree with what someone is saying, it’s also valuable to be able to listen to your opposition in order to learn how to respond to them. for example, i learnt to argue with people who hate the idea of a queer sherlock holmes adaptation by paying attention to why they hate it so that i can address those points

also, don’t be afraid to ask people about things. if you know that somebody is knowledgeable about something you want to learn more about, ask them to point you in the direction of reliable sources or to share a few facts with you. of course it’s nobody’s obligation to educate others, but many people will be more than happy to (i know i am!)

anonymous asked:

When the Tom fans talk about Tom being flirty when he's single reminds me so much of what that interviewer said about Taylor and how she doesn't flirt so much as she sets the other person on fire lol. Do you know what interview I'm talking about? I can't remember exactly who said it but I think it's one more thing she and Tom have in common. Can you just imagine the insane chemistry they had going when they first met?

I don’t remember that interview.

theodoradove  asked:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn in 1933. She meets Steve Rogers pre- or post-freezing.

OR BOTH!

1942: 

It was nice to be back in New York, Steve thought, after touring the whole country with the Star Spangled Show. Even better, once the show was done here, they were going overseas – not into combat, but at least it was a start. It made him cheer up just to think about it, and he maybe threw a little extra flair into the show every night, took a little extra time at the stage door.

“What’s your name?” he asked, crouching to get on eye-level with the little girl who had been patiently waiting behind several taller, pushier people. 

“Ruth,” she said shyly, offering him her autograph book.

“Lovely name,” he replied. “Did you like the show?”

She nodded. “I liked the dancing.” 

“You gonna be a dancer when you grow up?”

“Nuh uh,” she said. 

“What’re you gonna be?”

“A judge,” she said. 

“Yeah? You gonna make sure justice is done?”

She nodded soberly.

“Well, Ruth, you gotta study hard, you know that, right?” he asked, as he signed her book. “I expect to see you on the bench someday.”

“Thank you,” she murmured, stepping back, and another handful of kids surged around her. Cute kid. 

2012: 

Steve had always liked Civics in school, but when you had to catch up on seventy years between your last history class and the present, it could get a little overwhelming. On the other hand, celebrity was good for something; when he’d been working on memorizing the names and major cases of the Supreme Court justices, Tony had said, “Well, do you want to meet them?”

A couple of long phone calls and a few weeks later, Steve passed through a LOT of security, down a hallway, and into a courtroom; it was early in the morning, ahead of the open public hours, and the room smelled like coffee. A tiny bird of a woman in a black gown was standing in front of the seating box. 

“Captain,” she said, as he shook her hand. 

“Justice Ginsburg, right?” he asked. “It’s an honor, ma’am.”

“I feel the same,” she said, and there was something very familiar about her smile. “I wanted to get here a little earlier than everyone else, to speak to you in private.” 

He was opening his mouth, about to ask why, when she reached into a pocket of the robe and took out a battered leather book, the kind kids used to collect autographs in.

“I don’t suppose you remember, you must have signed a lot of autographs,” she said. “But back in the war, just before you left for overseas, I went to see your bond show.” 

Steve looked down. Scrawled on the page was his clumsy signature and, in slightly better lettering, To Judge Ruth. Study Hard!

He looked up at her, eyes wide. “No, I remember – I asked if you wanted to be a dancer and you said no, you were going to be a judge.”

“You were the first adult outside of my family who didn’t sneer at a girl wanting to be a judge,” she said. 

“Well,” Steve said faintly. “Guess you must have studied.”

“Captain America said he wanted to see me on the bench. Couldn’t very well let him down,” she replied, and Steve laughed. 

  • Someone: what are you thinking about, you okay?
  • What I say: oh um, nothing, im fine!
  • What I mean: i just am still so blown away by the conviction and determination with which Bucky Barnes said 'No! Not without you!' in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) dir. Joe Johnston. He literally slams his hand down on the railing in frustration when he hears Steve say 'Just go, get out of here!'. The facility is falling down around him, everything is literally on fire and staying means certain death, but the idea of leaving there without Steve is completely unfathomable to him, it's so inconceivable that he's angry that Steve would even suggest such a thing. Bucky said he was with him right up to the very end and if this was the end of the line for Steve then it would be for him too and I'm just so overwhelmed by their commitment to each other.

“I’m trying to figure out the whole damn thing myself. I’m just confused. I have anxiety about the whole thing. You wake up every morning and think, what now? What stupid thing’s going to be said? What new email hack are you going to read about? What racist comment? A lot of my songs come from…not really anger, but anxiety. And feeling lost in the whole game.” -Billie Joe Armstrong

Daniel Radcliffe discussing how he has racist friends but won’t end a friendship over their racist beliefs is exactly why we have a hard time trusting white “allies” and why we’re sick and tired of hearing white “allies” talk about how THEY aren’t racist.

Radcliffe’s exact quote is: “And I’m still friends with them because I don’t think that friendship should be drawn along those lines.”

And like… This is exactly what we mean when we talk about how being an ally means you have to actively help dismantle racism, especially within your communities and with other white people. If you’ve ever said “But I’M not racist so what do you want me to do??????” then this shit right here is what the fuck you’re supposed to do.

Pretending like your white friends holding racist beliefs is just some minor thing you disagree with like what toppings go best on pizza or if Coke is better than Pepsi is, to be quite honest, fucking disgusting.

And if you think that severing a friendship over racism is going too far then you perhaps need to re-evaluate how much of an ally you actually are.

It’s a huge goddamn privilege for racism to just be a minor inconvenience to a friendship and I can guarantee that your friends of color are wondering how you can be an ally when you sit there and allow your other friends to actively dehumanize them

there's gonna come a time when their opinion doesn't bother you anymore. keep going. you're doing great.
i was watching the cringy interview with andrew scott in china

and one of the questions was “can you give any clue for the 4th season of sherlock” and he said “Well theres going to be three episodes” and you might think well yeah thats just a joke but in another interview with amanda someone asks “What are you most excited for about season 4″ and amanda abbington replies “the three episodes”.

After I watch the rest of the cringy interview I will look for more times they say that but it cant be a coincidence because the universe is rarely ever so lazy

Yuri on Ice.

I still haven’t checked all of Tumblr’s recent posts so maybe someone has translated it already, but this tweet by Mitsurou Kubo is just so beautiful I need to have it in my blog too.

“No matter what real people think about this anime, within its world no one is ever going to be discriminated against because of what they like. And that is something I will always protect.”


Further insight: 
Before she tweeted this she made another tweet where she said that they (the production staff) are not going to say whether the scene at the end of episode 7 is a kiss or not, and they leave it completely to the fans’ imagination. Out of curiosity I checked the comments to that tweet and she actually got backlash from some people accusing her to be vague on purpose “to keep the fanservice on the level of queerbaiting without confirming anything serious”. I think the comment above is partly her answer to the complaints too. Just because it’s not stated out loud, it does not mean that the show is just winking at fujoshi and being superficial. They are much more serious about discrimination issues than many seem to think.

I will just finally say that seriously, they can have all my money. I was so moved reading that tweet and I’m so thankful to all of the staff involved for creating such a wonderful anime. I never expected it to be so deep and so revolutionary compared to anything else in Japan. I hope they can get back the production costs and maybe we can even have a sequel too somewhere in the future.

(By the way, please buy the BDs/DVDs if you can afford and are even remotely interested in them, because that’s where the production team is getting most of their profit from)

On Alisha Diphda

I love Alisha. I really do. In fact, she might actually be my favourite female character in Tales of Zestiria (it’s so hard to pick favourites in Zestiria, since everyone’s so amazing and lovable). She’s kind, responsible, and fully capable of standing up for her morals and doing what she believes is right. Her strength and resolve are truly inspiring, and despite everything she goes through, she somehow manages to keep pushing forward for what she believes is important to her and the people she cares about. I actually see a lot of myself in Alisha–her idealism and slight naivety are things I can relate to, and her strength and persistence remind me to keep my head up and never give up on the things I value and believe in.

So, the Ghoul School gang is in a volleyball tournament against the boys from the other school.

This results in a lot of interesting things, such as forced perspective shots that makes Shaggy look tiny…

…bats hitting volleyballs so hard that they teleport straight through the net…

…and plenty of other fun frames.

However, mid-way through the game, we learn the boys are going to cheat to win! Oh noes!

They also talk about their cheating loudly, right by the net… so, wait, can all the people around not hear what they’re saying? I mean, they were talking to people all the way across the court at that volume before….

Whatever. Anyway, they decide to do said cheating via a physics-defying remote-controlled ball, which you’d think would raise some immediate eyebrows from the spectators.

Even without that, though… is it just me, or does this scheme seem way too easy to catch? 

He’s suspiciously holding the remote openly, on the court, in broad daylight, while talking loudly about how he’s cheating. Can no one see or hear him while he does this?

Or here, when he does it again?

Or here, when he does it yet again?

Or here, when he does it yet another time?!

I mean, sure, there’s willing suspension of disbelief and all, but this just seems a little silly. How can no one s–

…wait… is that a….

That’s such a strange thing to say, isn’t it? Like, what do you mean? Do you not believe in equality for men and women? I think it’s a response to overly-aggressive types. There are a lot of women who feel persecuted and go on about it, and I sometimes am like, “Honestly, just relax, because now you’re going in the other direction.” Sometimes, the loudest voice in the room isn’t necessarily the one you should listen to. By our nature alone, think about what you’re saying and say it—but don’t scream in people’s faces, because then you’re discrediting us. But that being said, it’s a really ridiculous thing to say you’re not a feminist.

JB Homophobia Analysis

Okay so there’s been a lot of bickering within the got7 fandom over what JB said during his celebrity bromance with Youngjae. Firstly, I’m disappointed in JB but I’m more dissapointed in people defending his actions. It wasn’t just one mistranslation, it was literally throughout the entire video. This is gonna be long but I took screenshots and I’m going to break it down for people who still can’t see why what he said was wrong.

But before that I just want to say this does not mean I think we should be sending him hate. In fact, we should be educating him on why what he said isn’t okay and a simple apology isn’t the end of the world. Idols aren’t perfect, they make mistakes and have flaws. JB’s homophobia is one of them. There’s nothing wrong with correcting ignorant behavior, but ignoring it just means it can happen again. Alright, I will now go in depth about the screenshots I took.
