So, my blog usually stays as my happy bubble, because God knows there is enough stress going around right now, but obviously I have something to say about what we’ve seen go on this past week.
First, wow. I really, really hope it was worth not voting for Hillary Clinton, Because Emails. To all the Trump voters who are now openly regretting your choices, I… am baffled. That you liked Obamacare, that you wanted the country respected, expected a grownup to do the job, and voted for him.
Next, I don’t blame anyone for being terrified out of their wits. Trump and the people around him are evil, a word I do not use lightly, and they will do anything they think they can possibly get away with. I don’t want to minimize or overlook the staggering amount of damage they will do and have done, especially to the most vulnerable among us, and trust me, I have had a lot of “well, the world is ending” moments over the past week. It has been a struggle to formulate any kind of hopeful response or to think that we have a chance of stopping this juggernaut, but… oddly, at the end, I think we do.
I think we can fight, and we can stop this monster. And that it matters.
I oddly have a lot more faith in humanity now than I did at other points during this week. I watched the protests, the marches, the demonstrations, the lawsuits, and the solidarity, and all I can think is, they are hoping this will stop. They are hoping we get bored or we let up or that we lose heart, because right now, this is working. We are making a difference. We are creating change. We are the resistance, and we have to be here for the long haul.
We are an UNIMAGINABLY PRIVILEGED generation. We have tools at our disposal that earlier resistance movements could only have dreamed of. We have ways to share information instantly, mobilize demonstrators, raise money, organize protests, connect with strangers, and otherwise get the word out. They can’t take that away from us. As long as we USE THEM.
If you can donate, donate.
If you can march, march.
If you can stand up, stand up.
If you can teach (as I am doing), teach.
You may not be a seasoned protester overnight. That’s all right. Just do more today than you did yesterday. And most of all:
It makes a difference. They’re scared of us. They’re scared of us.
We are the generation who have been raised on so many stories where the heroes had to defeat an evil regime. We are the generation with Harry and Voldemort, with Katniss and the Capitol, with the Rebel Alliance and the Evil Empire, with all these fictional tyrants who had to be overcome. We are the generation who always said we wanted our Hogwarts letters to come.
Well. Our Hogwarts letters are officially here.
If you don’t think you would have sat back and let Voldemort take over the Ministry and “given him a chance,” then don’t do it now. Take these tools. Take these stories. You have been given so much. USE IT. Don’t underestimate the damage that can and will be done – but also don’t underestimate what it means for you, you, small little scared you who doesn’t feel like anything you do matters, to stand up and resist it.
You are not alone. Look at everyone with you. Look at the heroes we never expected to need, but who are emerging from every place and every walk of life. This is not inevitable. This is not unavoidable. Again, I don’t want to underplay or minimize the danger we are all in, but it is precisely because of that danger that what YOU can do is so important.
You can be kind. You can be brave. You can be strong. Look at everyone out there alongside you. I’m trying my fucking hardest, and I’ve been honest about how terribly difficult this has been for me, and my fear for the future.
And yet: right now, I don’t feel hopeless.
These people are evil and dangerous and destructive. But they are on the wrong side of history, and they will lose. Only if you and I and everyone else fights them as hard as we can, yes. But it can be done.
It is not impossible.
It is necessary.
This is President Obama’s legacy: after eight years of him telling us that Yes WE can, not Yes HE can, after eight years of seeing that something else is possible, we know we are better than this. We know that we can’t go back. We know that we’re awake. We know this is not where or who we want to go or be as a people.
Be kind. Protect your Muslim, your Jewish, your black, your American Indian, your female, your LGBTQ, your most vulnerable sisters and brothers. Be there. Show up. Keep shouting. They’re terrified of that.
(Don’t be kind to Nazis.)
(Punch Nazis in the fucking face. Repeatedly.)
I love you all. Let’s beat this orange son of a bitch, and build a better world.
I LIED i just scrolled the rogue one tag and now i am aflame with tears and regret imma do this recap now
Visually, I was aroused, those shots after the death star blew some shit up (and some ppl up gOD) on jedha and scarif, bro BRO
Mads mikkelsen destroyed me in every scene he was in, he’s such an Actor™️ I was in awe
“stardust” : ‘ - )
That musical score? I was ready to tear shit up I was like, sign me up to the rebel alliance give me a blaster i want to slap darth vader with a fish I’ll do it right now
diego luna being an intense hardass giving everybody shit while also being…. soft GOODBYE
K-2SO owning everything, so sassy, so apologetic, such dry, dark humour, I realised I am that droid, that droid is me
K-2SO loved cassian so much oh my god, ,
The ships …. I’m dumb they probably have names but they were NICE TO LOOK AT AND VERY REAL
I did not like Tarkin’s videogame face at all
Krennic was a great villain, he was both Wormtongue and Saruman at the same time, you know, and he was very human as well? Like he wanted validation so much, he was very realistically flawed, an Earth villain, if that makes sense
Darth Vader killing all my mans in that ending scene, it scared me but I had like, a boner at the same time (seriously DV is such a lampooned bit of popular culture but in that scene it was the first time in any star wars movie I was like… fuck this guy is scary and unhinged)
I had a pit in my stomach for all the rebels that cassian brought with him on rogue one like, they were such soldiers, they gave such a doomed WWII battle vibe in the third act, especially with the fighting on the beaches (stunning)
Costumes, hobo galaxy invader chic is SO in right now and I’m glad
“Are you kidding? I’M BLIND”
Cyborg Forest Whitaker? …. yes
I WAS NOT HAPPY AT THE END
The beach… K-2SO literally working to save jyn and cassian till the last possible second… chirrut & baze… bodhi and the fuckin grenade like jesus fucking christ it was a massacre
This movie really cemented the fact that this series is all about war, which I know, duh, but the fact that the heroes all die, that there’s such a massive, almost incalculable cost that so few recognise - like it was so real. Like Luke’s the ‘chosen one’ but only because the less spectacular and dirty work was done for him. Not to shit on my homeboy luke but it was so jarring to have such a sincere message come from a series that’s usually fairly superficial, it was pretty powerful.
I’m sick of 2016 taking all the good things. s/o to my fam from the force awakens, none of them better die (after han) or I will have woRDS
except kyle ron, fuck that guy
Gonna go watch star trek beyond again….. they don’t play w me like this….
@godneurosis tagged me in this god awful no filter challenge and i…….regret……everything
(rules: take a picture of the sim that’s normally associated with your blog (your legacy founder/lead character in your story etc.), now take away all their cc (except their hair, eyebrows, and skin color), then do a before and after picture)
I can see how excited we are about the cast and their social media stories. They are fun and great so please for the love of god don’t let them regret sharing it with us by creeping them out. Do not leave creepy or suggestive comments on their social media, do not tag them in fanfiction or fanart that uses their real life pictures.. And for god’s sake don’t even mention something like Sendrick to them. Shipping real people is already problematic enough but when you actually willingly bring it to their attention this would be crossing all sorts of lines
fuck okay your tags just make me feel even more turned on by whatever you post oh my god i literally owe my life to zen i worship him and your blog fulfills it thank you i love you
Oooh I’m glad to hear that ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I don’t always go all out with the tags but sometimes the content of the post is so inspiring I just NEED to point out the good stuff. And thank you! Btw, I have nothing on @guacameowle when it comes to tagging. Take a look at that stuff, you won’t regret it
DEAR GOD I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE “dad, is that your arm around my shoulders?” “no, this is the feeling of soul-crushing regret and constant pain and suffering.” “dad, i’m hungry.” “hi, hungry, i’m the metal replacement organs pressing against your insides and regularly causing internal bleeding.” “dad, are you hugging me?” “no, this is the warm embrace of death at last.”
Okay but if you think that’s bad just imagine the jokes he tells Han Solo.
(Also, the jokes he makes to various Imperial officers. These usually tend to leave them in a state of blind terror, because nobody thinks that Darth Vader is going to make a joke. And honestly how are you even supposed to react when he catches you and your mates gossiping in the mess about whether or not he’s a droid, and instead of murdering you all he just says, “Well, you’re only half wrong.”)
(imma cheat and say the entire song. the imagery in the lyrics across their entire discography is just fucking phenomenal. i can’t be pressed to pick just one from this song. sorry, i luff them. and be warned, they are noisy)
“the giant swan’s got ghosts in his wings his guts are stuffed with polaroids and they’re all humiliating and when the wine’s drunk and the wild cabaret has sung its last voice and you’re sitting alone in the 4 a.m. darkness of a pitch-black theater he explodes like fireworks on the stage with gold smoke sing, your voice just won’t stop blooming he wrote a play and you’re the protagonist all the girls you wish you’d fucked make a guest appearance and oh, you just won’t believe the ending so fly me home, giant swan the giant swan’s got a pixelated beak his eyes are twin mushroom clouds his feathers are unsuspecting cities and his breasts are hollow apartments with the finest quality furnishings and you can watch tv until you die there skin draped over luxury chairs sing, your voice just won’t stop blooming your heart’s a diamond, buddy, what’s the price? your heart’s a diamond, what’s the fucking price? your skin is cheap and your hair is shoddy sit and watch the ballerinas kick and spin and strip down to your vulgar skeleton you better take one more drink of Captain Morgan’s rum it’s gonna sting like a raw sunrise when they black swan’s gone back at the resort the curtains closed you haven’t left the room for two solid weeks with a pound of cocaine under the bed where the call girls perform their services and you have to leave CNN on so you don’t think about her newborn son who entered this town from the crotch you’re renting out who’s at the door? what the fuck! who’s at the door? what the fuck! who’s at the door? what the fuck! your heart is sweating and your hands are turning black your shadow breaks in wearing a ski mask is that a machete at your throat? give me all your money! give me all your dope! and the sun’s like a painting of your whole life you scratch at the canvas, but you can’t get inside the sun’s like a painting of your whole life you scratch at the canvas, but you can’t get inside your family’s gurgling grief you think you’re fast asleep is that the curtain closing? giant swan, take me to the river is that my flesh corroding? giant swan, take me to the river all the things you wish you’d said are buried with your x’d out head all your ulterior motives giant swan, take me to the river giant swan, take me to the river giant swan, take me to the river”

inHALES AND SENDS U #12 TOO BC YE AH I CAN IM SO SORRY DONT FEEL U GOTTA DO THI S
things you said when you thought i was asleep // things said
this one was VIVALDI, created by that man, bach had another reason to feel such a close bond with this one. had he not also written music for GOD? had vivaldi not also thought about the heavens? the difference between the two was that bach dared to walk upon the grounds of GOD, while vivaldi merely waited at heaven’s gates.
now, vivaldi slept in a smaller form –– birdy, he called himself, & it was fitting. this little angel slept under the blue cloak that bach often wore, the larger male left to watch as the cloak was pulled tighter & tighter around that small form ( what a precious soul he was!! for as much as bach hated kyougo, bringing vivaldi into the world again was not such a terrible idea–– perhaps it would be better if vivaldi had been given an older body, but in the end, kyougo was also this boy’s maker, what else could he expect ).
❛ you know, ❜ he began, a hand moving to touch soft ash-blond curls, ❛ you were an inspiration. your music was a pathway to the kingdom of god. i can never thank you enough, ❜
❛ i suppose it was you that taught me how to truly fly. ❜
