how can people hate you d:

Dear Evan Hansen characters as Anna Kendrick tweets
  • Evan: Sometimes I think “I need to think before I speak” and then other times I think “I shouldn’t leave the house or interact with people ever.”
  • Alana: I woke up just before winning the argument in my dream. Fuck this day.
  • Jared: For someone with such an intense need to be liked you’d think I would have figured out how to be less of an asshole.
  • Connor: If I die unexpectedly can everyone just do the right thing and pretend I was a way better person than I am?
  • Zoe: “You’re the only person in the world I don’t hate right now" is as close as I get to saying “I love you”
  • Cynthia: My daily objective is less about goal achievement and more about regret management.
  • Heidi: It’s cute how I used to think this “barely-holding-it-together” feeling was temporary.

one thing i think is interesting, as someone who basically grew up playing video games non-stop, is how some types of video game just don’t gel with people 

like, it’s easy to forget that, even though i’m pretty bad at most games, that my skill at handling video games is definitely “above average.” as much as i hate to put it like this, i’d say my experience level is at “expert” solely because I can pick up any game controller and understand how to use it with no additional training. 

a friend of mine on twitter posted a video of him stuck on a part of samus returns. the tutorial area where it teaches you how to ledge-grab. the video is of him jumping against the wall, doing everything but grabbing the ledge, and him getting frustrated 

i’ve been playing games all my life, so i’d naturally intuit that i should jump towards the ledge to see what happens 

but he doesn’t do that.

it’s kinda making me realize that as games are becoming more complex and controllers are getting more buttons, games are being designed more and more for people who already know how to play them and not people with little to no base understanding of the types of games they’re playing 

so that’s got me thinking: should video games assume that you have zero base knowledge of video games and try to teach you from there? should Metroid: Samus Returns assume that you already know how to play a Metroid game and base its tutorial around that, or should it assume that you’ve never even played Mario before? 

it’s got me thinking about that Cuphead video again. you know the one. to anyone with a lot of experience with video games, especially 2D ones, we would naturally intuit that one part of the tutorial to require a jump and a dash at the same time.

but most people lack that experience and that learned intuition and might struggle with that, and that’s something a lot of people forget to consider. 

it reminds me a bit of the “land of Punt” that I read about in this Tumblr post. Egypt had this big trading partner back in the day called Punt and they wrote down everything about it except where it was, because who doesn’t know where Punt is? and now, we have no idea where it was, because everyone in Egypt assumed everyone else knew.

take that same line of thinking with games: “who doesn’t know how to play a 2D platform game?” nobody takes in to consideration the fact that somebody might not know how to play a 2D game on a base level, because that style of gameplay is thoroughly ingrained in to the minds of the majority of gamers. and then the Cuphead situation happens.

the point of this post isn’t to make fun of anybody, but to ask everyone to step back for a second and consider that things that they might not normally consider. as weird as it is to think about for people that grew up playing video games, anyone who can pick up a controller with thirty buttons on it and not get intimidated is actually operating at an expert level. if you pick up a playstation or an Xbox controller and your thumbs naturally land on the face buttons and the analog stick and your index fingers naturally land on the trigger buttons, that is because you are an expert at operating a complex piece of machinery. you have a lifetime of experience using this piece of equipment, and assuming that your skill level is the base line is a problem.

that assumption is rapidly becoming a problem as games become more complex. it’s something that should be considered when talking about games going forward. games should be accessible, but it’s reaching a point where even Nintendo games are assuming certain levels of skill without teaching the player the absolute basics. basics like “what is an analog stick” and “where should my fingers even be on this controller right now.” 

basically what i’m saying is that games are becoming too complex for new players to reasonably get in to and are starting to assume skill levels higher than what should be considered the base line. it’s becoming a legitimate problem that shouldn’t be laughed at and disregarded. it’s very easy to forget that thing things YOU know aren’t known by everyone and that idea should be taken in to consideration when talking about video games. 

This website is a perfect example of why we as a society progress so slowly. It’s always “us vs them”. You’re either the worst person on earth or a perfect angel. That isn’t how the world works. Yes there are true monsters in the world but coming on here you’d think every person who’s ever done anything that might even be considered slightly wrong is a terrible demon. People sending my friend anon hate because Ewan Mcgregor didn’t make a strong enough public statement against Weinstein for their liking. People saying anyone who bought a ticket to one of the x-men movies directed by Bryan Singer supports pedophilia. People going back to interviews from 3, 6, 10 years ago to find something they can twist to be a reason enough to hate someone. I’m tired. I’m so very tired of all the of damning anyone who doesn’t fit into a purity that doesn’t exist.

anonymous asked:

were you two close before you started doing unsolved? have you gotten closer since starting? did you think the show would take off so much??

R: We had done Test Friends before Unsolved and we also sat next to each other from the time we were interns to now. So, yeah, I’d say so. As the show has progressed, I’ve definitely gotten to the point where I can appreciate how much I HATE him… jk we’re pals. I did not think the show would take off the way it has, and I’m thankful that there’s now a community of people who not only enjoy the show, but also, a community of people who I relate to. I just think that’s so cool, thanks for that. 

S: Yeah, we were always in close proximity to each other at work and have shared interests, so we’ve always gotten along. Beyond enjoying spookythings we also have a mutual appreciation for things like popcorn and the motion picture Speed Racer, a movie Ryan loves maybe even more than I do.

RFA +V/Saeran with smol MC? :)

Okay for all of these MC is like 5´3¨


-Makes him feel like a manly man that he´s taller than you

-Even though he´s 5´6¨ lolol

-When you can´t reach something he swoops in because he´s the tall one and feels all cool

-But then he can´t reach it either whoops

-Ur house has a lot of stools

-I feel like you guys are like those vines where the short people like team up to fight whenever someone insults you


Yoosung: Kick his ass baby I got ur flower


-She´s like two inches taller than you

-She doesn´t really comment on your height, it doesn´t matter to her

-She does find it kind of cute to see you stretch up to try and reach the coffee beans on the top shelf

-But honestly she´s just like ¨Okay MC is shorter than me. What am I gonna make for dinner¨


-Loves that you´re so tiny

-He feels very protective over you

-At first he´s very delicate with you, like he thinks you´re so small that you´ll fall apart

-Until you´re like ¨Zen wtf I am a full blown adult¨

-He annoys you sometimes because he can´t take you seriously when you´re mad at him, you´re just too cute!

-Doesn´t get stools, he just swoops in whenever you can´t reach something to reach it for you

-He´s the best big spoon tbh

-You feel so warm and cozy in his arms

-Always makes sure you get a seat to his shows where you´re not blocked by tall people


-He´s a tree honestly he´s so tall

-Imagine all those cute height difference otp prompts and that´s you guys

-Like you´ll try to kiss him but you still can´t reach him on your tiptoes, and he notices and leans down to kiss you

-Completely remodels the penthouse to be more accommodating to your height, cause it was catered towards him and you could barely reach the sink

-There are some tabloid rumors about your age which Jumin quickly works to dispel. He hates that people are trying to make drama in your relationship.

-Also your height would make it easier to do bondage



-The short puns

-Oh my god the short puns

-He´d tease you all the time like ¨Hey MC hows the weather down there?¨

-Hold things out of your reach sometimes to annoy you

-But if you’re self conscious about it he’ll stop teasing you cause he doesn´t want to actually hurt your feelings

-You both have a giant collection of heels and you fight about who has more pairs

-One day you decide to just count up all your heels to see once and for all who has more

-Saeran walks out of his room to find both of you surrounded by shoes while you´re yelling at him that ¨WEDGES ARE FUCKIN HEELS YOU DONGLE¨


-When he lured you into the apartment he thought that it was perfect because you´re so small and defenseless (lolol)

-But once he gets to know you after the after ending he realizes you can THROW DOWN

-Like I´m imagining some guy hits on you and he´s about ready to murder him until you just fucking deck him in the face and knock him out.

-Saeran *softly*: holy shit

-You are super adorable when you´re not punching someone in the face and he doesn´t know why or how the fuck he´s supposed to express this feeling

-¨You look like a bunny¨ ¨Thanks?

-He´s trying okay?

anonymous asked:

I've noticed you like kevin/aaron do you mind sharing any headcanons about them as they're an extremely rarepair and most people hate aaron so I can't ask alot of people.

Ummmmm an opportunity to yell about my rare otp and how much I love Aaron Minyard?? Yes ??????
(this took so long, im sorry D: )

  • Kevin gets into arguments with the foxes a lot and he’ll just stop mid-sentence sometimes and gesture angrily at Aaron like “can you back me up please???” and Aaron just closes his laptop or whatever and goes to stand by his bf and opens his mouth like hes gonna say something to the others and then just shakes his head and pats Kev on the shoulder and leaves
  • Aaron is low-key a meme king and Kevin doesn’t really understand contemporary social media but Aaron trains him to respond to memes educates him, and if you listen closely you can hear Aaron whisper “and we’re roommates” into the darkness at 3am right before you hear a half-asleep Kevin snore loudly and yell “OH MY GOD, WE’RE ROOMMATES” and then the sound of a startled Nicky jerking awake and falling out of bed while cursing
  • Aaron is everyone’s first line of defense when it comes to his bf pushing health food on them. The two go shopping together and every time Kevin turns to look at something, Aaron scans the cart and pulls out anything that’s too green. They get to the check stand and Kev is like “I swear I grabbed an artichoke??” and Aaron is like “guess all that healthy shit isn’t helping your memory at all is it? We walked right past that stuff and you didn’t even stop to look, babe”
  • Aaron is the only person that Kevin trusts to string his racquet
  • you’ve heard of andreil sleeping facing each other, now get ready for Kaaron sleeping facing away from each other. Aaron always sleeps facing the wall with the blanket over his head because he got used to trying to block everything out when his mom would bring guys home or when she would get into these drunk yelling matches with Luther on the phone, and Kevin sleeps facing the room because he used to watch Riko sleep and wonder how the soft quiet boy became so hard and cruel,,
  • (tl;dr,,, Kevin and Aaron feel safe at night with the warmth and weight of the other against their back)
  • sometimes Andrew and Aaron both wear long sleeves and Kevin can’t 100% tell them apart, so he’ll casually sit next to one of them and the boy doesn’t say anything, seems to lean into Kevin a bit even, so he’s like “ah ok this one is mine” in his head, and then he goes to kiss his boyfriend’s cheek and a book comes flying from across the room followed by a glare and “IM Aaron, you asshole,”
  • Kevin starts to get up to go sit by the other twin, but a hand grabs his wrist and pulls him back down and the twin next to him goes “what the fuck, Andrew? He knows it’s me, he’s not stupid like Neil”
  • (Neil got as far as “yes or no” last week before Aaron realized what was happening and shoved him off the couch)
  • Kevin nods and cautiously puts his arm around Aaron(?), and Aaron turns to “kiss” Kevin but actually just presses his lips to his and mutters “retract your arm, you fake bitch, I know you couldn’t tell it was me”

anonymous asked:

Can you do an analysis on Yuzuru's autograph/signature and how it evolved throughout the years?

Oh well, this is actually quite interesting, cause I realized how extra Yuzuru is even with his signature (why did I even expect otherwise XP)

So far, we only know of two Yuzuru’s signatures, the mushroom one when he was younger, and the one he uses until now. I don’t really know the specific time that he changed his signature, but he used the mushroom one as far as 2009-2010 season, so I suppose he changed it when he went senior.

On the signatures themselves, let’s take a look at the mushroom signature:

He put lots of stuffs in there. We can all see the his Yuzu-shenko self here with the bowl cut. I think as people called him Mushroom-kun when he was small so it gradually became a thing for him (though he hated it lol). The body of Mushroom-kun is the Japanese flag and he smartly drew it so that we can see JPN, which stands for the country he represents, Japan. And at the end of his name, he put the drawing of a skate boot there, and I’m like “Dude, that’s so extra for just a signature!!! XD”

[edit: one more version of this signature in 2012 founded by @aitenshi080880 (thanks! :D) you can see how “neat” Yuzuru’s handwriting has become over the years XD]

Onto the second and his present signature, this is how it started out, quite neat and readable.

The idea is quite simple. It’s just “Yuzuru”, and he adds some strokes at the end to make it become HN, which stands for Hanyu, at the end of the signature. [edit: according to @kichessarjilian (thanks dear :D), it looks like JPN rather than HN, especially in those he did earlier in 2012, which makes a lot of sense given the JPN in the mushroom signature and after I have found more photos of it]. And of course he had to make the ‘Y’ letter into a wing symbol *extra*. In earlier versions, you can see a mushroom at the end of his signature. Some may say that the curve and the 2 dots at the bottom of both of his signatures is the drawing of a skating boot, but I’m not sure about this, cause it’s quite common where I live to add those strokes to end your signature (I have no idea why lol). [edit: now that I closely look at the signature above, it seems like those last strokes are a part of the wing symbol? That might be it!]

But as he uses it more and get comfortable with it, he kinda cut short his signature after letter z (also cut the mushroom or make it totally unrecognizable =.=) and his ‘Y’ stroke is also larger now, but the wing symbol looks so bad now also for that reason :)))

Yuzuru’s signature varies, cause sometimes he has to do lots of them. Here’s one example when I feel like he just got lazy after the letter ‘z’, and like “whatever!!” XD

Bonus: Ok his signatures are packed with stuffs, but did you know he got his own cute stamp??? With a wing and a mushroom beside his name!!! LOL this is beyond me, I bow to you Mr. Yuzuru Extra Hanyu XD

(As a CCS fan, I would like to spend a moment to appreciate how he draws the wings the exact way that I love <3)

look, i hate pitting women against each other in most capacities, but i swear to god i can’t wait for D to get outsmarted, outwitted and outsassed by Sansa. not for any shipping reasons, mind you, but because i mean this bitch is coming in here trying to take Sansa’s home and force her people into submission while shouting about how she’s the rightful queen and she’s just been through so much at the hands of the patriarchy. and i just want Sansa to listen to all of that and look into the camera like she’s in The Office, okay? i need it. 

anonymous asked:

Hey uhh sorry for this kind of question but honestly I'm really desperate. What did you do/say that kept you going throughout the years? It's just...everything has been really painful for me for a variety of reasons and for some reason I just had an urge to ask you of all people. Also if this is too personal or it you don't like this ask than please please ignore or something. I'd hate to send something that makes you or others uncomfortable and I can see how it could be perceived that way.

well, to be honest with you there wasn’t really anything i had like that to keep me going. i was really suicidal most of my life and i made a few attempts and probably the only reason i’m alive is that i was so afraid of burdening my family with hospital/funeral costs and with the suffering that comes from losing a loved one.

but if i can offer u one piece of comfort & hope, it’s honestly that i’m glad i’m still here. things got better for me gradually and i’m glad i get to experience it. stuff changes and that means the stuff you hate dealing with will eventually be gone. you should stick around until you have a reason to be glad you stuck around

how to NOT write a d/Deaf or HoH character 101.    a guide for hearing people .   ( okay to reblog )

as a deaf kid -  a fucking guide bc it’s time to Stop this bullshit in fanfiction and roleplay.      i don’t claim to know everything about being d/Deaf but uh im p sure i know more than Hearing ppl.   most of the folks on tumblr are hearing and you can really notice it in fanfiction ;;;;;;;    anyways i hope this made sense but whatever

some terminology :

HoH : hard of hearing
deaf :   deaf
Deaf :  actively part of the Deaf community & culture
CODA :  child of Deaf parents
hearing impa*red :  generally considered a slur by d/Deaf people  only used by medical Hearing ppl tbh don’t use it .

  • please don’t write anything about the Experiences of being d/Deaf if you aren’t d/Deaf or CODA ?   you wanna write a d/Deaf character ?  go ahead !   but please don’t write a narrative that focuses on deafhood because YOU AREN’T ? 
  • becoming deaf in an accident is a whole other narrative as being Born d/Deaf or gradually losing your hearing .   but please don’t just do it because of angst and fluff ?  that’s the most ANNOYING THING IVE EVER READ .   being d/Deaf is not tragic ?   we’re not going to ? die ?   we just ?   can’t hear ?   also fixing ‘ d/Deafness and oh my god how will i survive when i can’t hear music (anymore) and my bf is a singer’ ? ? ?  ?  i hate these narratives keep away from them with a ten foot pole omg
  • most people who lose their hearing in an accident  don’t lose all of it  ? ??    a lot of d/Deaf people have residual hearing left  -  you can hear Some Sounds  ! ! !    i don’t have any residual hearing left but that’s because coc.hlear implant surgery destroys any residual hearing left .  
  • coc.hlear implants and bone conduction (i havent Ever seen a fic ft bone conduction ????) aren’t like glasses .  i personally don’t have any experience w bone conduction but CI hearing is artificial hearing and it takes months if not years to properly learn to hear with them ? ? ? ?   it’s incredibly frustrating and Tiring to hear w them .  
  • if you’re going to write a character  who’s Culturally Deaf and part of Deaf culture please use a Deaf faceclaim .  there’s a bunch of Deaf actors out there so you don’t really have an excuse .   keep also in mind that Deaf people are a historically oppressed minority and you Really should do your Research. 
  • that being said if you’re writing a character thats born deaf then maybe also factor in Deaf culture ? 
  • please don’t take away our agency and dont write a caretaker &  d/Deaf person narrative ?  we really value it ?   i’ve ditched  ‘ friends ’ because ? ?  they didn’t respect me as a deaf individual and treated me in a  condescending manner just bc i’m deaf .
  • there’s much more to address but i think i have covered some Important topics . in any case you should def watch THROUGH DEAF EYES  because it’s a brilliant documentary covering Deaf culture .    if you’ve watched that and read this post you should also watch CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD ! 
  • Stefano is a gentlemen through and through, but his wants and desires come first. If you have managed to capture his interest, there’s little you can do other than accept his affections.
  • Prove your worth or he’ll quickly grow bored and wish to move on to a new project. He easily objectifies people, so unless you make yourself distinctive and keep him enthralled, you are becoming part of the art.
  • Submission does not equal safety. Being sweet and agreeable might seem like the best route to take, but Stefano hates deceit. He’d rather have a S/O who speaks their mind often and honestly than a coward who does anything for survival’s sake.
  • Despite how easily he could kill you he showers you in affection and compliments, enough so to almost lower your guard around him. Every once in a while he’ll remind you of his power if you forget.
  • Even though Stefano 100% in control, he still likes hearing your thoughts and feelings. Expect to be held to his chest while he runs his fingers through you hair as you talk.
  • He’ll feel conflicted for some time over his actual feelings for you, even if you are already involved with each other. Stefano pours his feelings into his art, and it would make sense to immortalize your beauty through his work. But if you die he won’t be able to hold and touch you, not in the way he loves. He’s selfish, and at some point he decides he likes you alive. Be wary, he’ll still punish you when he sees fit.
  • While you might not become art, your body is still a canvas. Every scratch, cut, and bruise is by the famed artist himself.
  • On the less violent side, Stefano loves bathing with you. Cleaning himself after a long day in the studio has become a ritual of his, and including you in this activity is an act of trust.
  • No matter how rough Stefano is, he’s excellent at patching you up. Can’t have his muse bleeding out. Death is not an option. He’s keeping you.

Sorry these aren’t all cute and romantic, wanted to keep Stefano sort of in character ✨🔪

 I’m not talking about the really light-skinned or racially ambiguous women either. I mean black women who are visibly black. Those who are brown and dark-skinned. The ones with natural hair, braids, dreadlocks, and broad features. Why don’t we ever see them be “sexy” in music videos with black men? There’s a difference between being sexy and vulgarized. When light-skinned and non-black women are plastered in these videos for aesthetics, they are made to be sensual. When darker-skinned women are shown once in every blue moon, all you see are their butts or skin; never their faces.

 Whenever it’s brought up, we are gaslighted. We’re asked if we really want to be in an environment that sexually degrades us. Of course we don’t. That’s not what we are asking. We are asking to be shown as just as sexy, carefree and beautiful as the non-black women in these videos. We know the difference between men objectifying women and glorifying them. And we are not glorified. Many black men’s excuse is that they don’t want to see us objectified, so they spare us the burden by using white and non-black women. I find that malarkey. The real reason is simple: They just don’t want us to be sexy. They don’t want us to have agency over our own bodies and sexuality. It’s a form of control. It’s jealousy. It’s possession. It’s misogynoir.

 Black men have no problem sexualizing us when it’s convenient. A Twitter user said the words I’ve been thinking: if you’re going to sexualize us, at least pay us. We hardly see dark-skinned and black female sex-workers put in the same light as lighter-skinned and non-black women. They refuse to pay us to be sexy. They want us to be sexy for free. Whenever they think of black women, all they think of is our bodies and looks. When someone asks why they love black women, they always go for features associated with black womanhood like big butts, curves, full lips, and kinkier hair texture. I refuse to believe it’s because most find us “ugly” or “undesirable.” Many do, but that’s mainly because of white supremacy, not actually believing we’re unattractive. Because notice, as soon as someone like Teyana Taylor is deemed acceptable for the mainstream, you have black men posting pictures of her calling her “sexy.” Teyana has big lips, dark-brown skin, and a broad nose. Years ago, she was mocked for her role in that Tyler Perry movie where she was saying “BYRONNNNN!” in that exaggerated AAVE. Now because she’s popular and people say she’s attractive, the same men calling women who look like Teyana “hideous” are calling Teyana “goals.” The same with Taral Hicks from A Bronx Tale and Belly. If she wasn’t glorified and made to be the most beautiful thing in DMX’s 1998 film, Kodak Black would have looked at her as just any other “ugly d*rkie.” Black men can cut the crap. Just say you hate us but want the benefit of controlling us at the same time.

 It’s the same logic as how white men hate white women but have no problem fucking them. They’re even attracted to them. It’s the same with black men and black women intraracially. The only difference is, pretending we’re ugly by default keeps us under their control. If we have low self-esteem or are suppressed by looks, then we can’t be “above” black men. One minute black women are “ugly” and “manly,” the next minute black men are on a Hotep spiel on how we’re more “fragile” than “the black man.” So my theory is that there is truth to what black men say about rather seeing other men’s women “objectified” than their own. Trust me, it doesn’t make me feel any better. It is not flattering or moving to me. I am disgusted. However, I can’t help but laugh. Most black men don’t genuinely find non-black women better than black women, they just find them easier to control anti-blackness than if they were men. It’s still misogyny, they just have less power. Black men either find black women’s bodies vulgar and “offensive,” or so “sexy,” they don’t want us to be the object of desire to non-black men. Especially white men.

 That is why black men will call us bedwenches before they call Fredrick Douglas a fuckboy, Eldridge Cleaver a rapist and an abuser, and Martin Luther King a bumbling cheater. The worst atrocity according to black men are black women being raped. Not because it was horrible and a violation of women’s agency and rights, but because “their” woman was touched by “the white man.” I can see a man being angry and hurt that a woman he loves dearly was violated and gravely hurt. But that isn’t the case. When black men speak of slavery, they speak of ire at the fact white men were raping all the black women while black men apparently couldn’t do a damn thing about it. I remember seeing one man on Twitter tweet how white men would take all the “pretty” slaves to sleep with. As if those women consented. Therefore, black men control our sexuality under the guise of “protection.” They claim they want to protect us from white or non-black men when we so as choose to date outside of our race, but I know the truth. They’re just jealous and don’t like the idea of black women being the object of someone else’s gaze. So yes, I do believe the lack of black women in these rappers’ music videos is a reference of many black men’s egos. It’s fun for them to brag about having other races of men’s women but then when it comes to us. they don’t want to brag about us because they know those same men consume hip-hop just as much if not more than all black people combined. 

 Another theory of mine is that black men simply don’t find us pure and beautiful enough to be in their music videos. It’s that simple. It’s okay for light-skinned women to be curvy and shaking their asses. It’s even okay for non-black or mixed race women to do the same thing. But when we do it, it’s “ghetto,” it’s “ratchet,” it’s “ugly.” It’s more “sexy” for these “pure” angels to get “down and dirty” (which is where “down” comes from when it’s to reference understanding the black struggle). Those women will always be seen as “pure” and “beautiful” no matter what, so people love the taboo of “good girls” acting like “hoes,” e.g. dark-skinned and visibly black women.  You can say not all black men feel this way, and I would concur. However, since black men have male privilege and black women do not, I will hold all black men accountable for their misogynoir and erasure of us.

i really don’t get how people can call cole and lili’s relationship a “publicity stunt” when neither one of them have come out and even admitted they’re dating? with publicity stunts you think they’d be gushing about their relationship to tabloids instead of denying one even exists?

and if cole hates lili so damn much he sure does have a funny way of showing it. taking pics of her so many times, and using her as one of his models, or hanging out with her. 

yeah he really can’t stand to be around her…

I guess that the hope is in our show, super hero behavior and activity is given to people who have the abilities to do something about what is frustrating them, whether it be petty crime or anything larger. If you were to try and find something parallel to the world we live in, it’s really ‘What is heroic behavior on daily basis for people who don’t have those type of powers?’ For me that can be as simple as calling 911 if you see a crime. It can be standing up to a bully in the office by telling them how you really feel. Really, anything that takes a little bit of courage and enforces integrity. But I’d hate to put on the impression that people should put on a suit and go …you know. The truth is, in my heart, I don’t believe that violence is the answer to anything. That sounds a bit idealistic but, well, you know.

anonymous asked:

Why has there been so much Misha hate lately? Idk what’s going on???????

It appears to just be that the anti assholes are backed into a corner because everything in the show and from J2 is emphasising how much Cas and Misha are important and loved so they lash out because that is the nature of assholes.

I wouldn’t worry, just send your own love where you can and know that TPTB and Misha know that this is a tiny percentage of fandom and not representative at all. Just as most humans are not assholes, most people in fandom are not, it’s just that, as we know, assholes make a lot of noise.

“#Superman #WonderWoman the movie #powercouple @wbpictures #makeithappen @CharlesSoule”

Tony is on a roll. You know, if I did not even support Superman x Wonder Woman I’d still 100% support his right to have a pov and tweet what he wants. The bullies and haters from other ships think they can dictate and try to shut people down and trample on our freedom to like what we want. They can hate and tweet hate about our ship and have long, gleeful conversations on twitter about how awful we are but we have to stay quiet to appease them. They can eff off.  SuperWonderers, stand up for your ship. Support Tony, who has treated with our couple with much respect and support.
