If I can ever figure out how to get rabbit to work how would y’all feel about doing a Cold War themed movie night once in a while? Not sure when the exact date and time will be and it depends on how many are interested. If you are either send me an ask or message me. Thanks!
i noticed this thing with a lot of men. they tend to be really generous and kind only to women they’re attracted to. duh, obvious statement to most of you but it’s jarring when you see it first hand and it’s so prevalent and insidious to the point that it feels uncomfortable accepting help from a strange without thinking of the possibility of him having ulterior motives. and it’s disheartening knowing that if you’re in a position needing a man’s help, a lot of times it will depend entirely on whether or not he’s attracted to you. and the problem is that they think this goes both ways. i can show a simple gesture of kindness and a man will take it as me coming on to him. me letting you go in front of me on the checkout line because you have one item, me offering change because you don’t have any, or anything other well-intentioned act of kindness results in a man trying to eventually make a move thinking that it’s mutual. how sad it must be to think that there’s no kindness for the sake of kindness. that all good done in this world is based on sexual impulses instead of the desire to help another human being just how you like to be helped.
keith, within 0.2 seconds of entering a room: where’s shiro?
the “it’s good to have you back”/ “it’s good to be back” callback in s2
i don’t necessarily think this was their first interaction after being reunited in s1 (like presumably keith gave shiro clothes to change into etc. before this exchange) but i love that they both remembered & referenced it in s2
the fact that keith’s very first scene involves him tenderly touching shiro’s face
how adamant keith is about shiro being the One True Black Paladin™ (”you mean your bayard”)
shiro’s complete and utter faith in keith’s abilities as a pilot / leader:
sending keith to chase rolo through the asteroid belt
having keith pilot them to the BOM headquarters, which is located between two black holes (bonus: the way he’s 100% certain keith can get them back on course when one of the black holes starts drawing them in)
supporting keith in infiltrating zarkon’s ship despite it being dangerous bc his trust in keith outweighs everything
the way keith always rushes to shiro’s defense when he’s incapacitated / out of commission
“at this moment, your friend desperately wants to see you”
the way shiro, who is generally very controlled in his actions, feels comfortable enough to relinquish that control a little and drop his ~leader facade when it’s just him and keith
just overall how soft they are with each other, both in terms of tone of voice & expression
Besides everything that I have going on the side, I want to raise some awareness about a specific person. I am not usually one for drama but when it concerns friends and mutuals I have VERY STRONG FEELINGS on art theft and reposting! Especially when I can help it!!
I instantly recognized this as Simika’s wonderful artwork and I was irritated to see it on here. Just because you put a tiny source link does not mean it is okay to repost without permission! Unless permission is explicitly given you should. not. do. it.
So I messaged this person, you can see the conversation I had with them. They seemed…… ok? Very formal, but all that did was sugar-coat their really selfish intentions. I ended up speaking with Simika about this, as you can see from the screenshot below, as they are one of my mutuals…. I got clear instructions to ask them to take it down. So I sent the screenshot. This very “formal and polite” person who “takes art theft very seriously” blocked me shortly afterwards. They did not take the post down.
… What to do? I’m furious. I cannot report artwork that isn’t my own and Simika does not know English. If maybe you can send them an ask asking them to take down the artwork… I do not suggest attacking, that is never acceptable, but there is a lesson here as well….. Just because you source does not make it okay to repost….. Especially when the artist says so.
(sigh it is such a problem, I am frustrated and unsure what to do at this point.
