how the hell does this have 1k

I am so sick of the misinformation going around about Standing Rock. To begin with DAPL was set to go through a town called Bismarck, a town that is mostly white. The people of this town expressed concern for the pipeline leaking, and said they didn’t want it.

When the pipleline was re-routed, it was set up to go through land that belongs to the Standing Rock Sioux. For those who don’t know what I mean by “belongs to” because “Oh me oh my, this is American land,” no, it isn’t. Not all of it. There is land that belongs to different Native tribes. Including part of the land that the pipeline will be going through. This was not done with permission. How was this done? This was done by bulldozing up the graves of ancestors. (If that doesn’t bother you, read it as the graves of our veterans; the graves of our presidents’ families; the graves of your family.)

Outside of the media finally watching us for the last six months, the camps have been there before that. I know someone who was there on April 1, 2016. That’s well before the media started paying attention in August. Well before. The camps have been self-sustaining. Yes, there have been donations. Yes, donations were made in physical items, money for items, and money for legal funds. That money and those items went to keeping something beautiful alive.

People who were arrested had numbers written on their arms, they were kept in dog cages. Protectors who were peacefully in prayer had untrained dogs set on them to attack. There are photos floating around of one trainer who couldn’t keep her dog, who had blood in its mouth, under control. In sub-zero conditions in the early morning protectors were hosed down with freezing water - this includes the elderly and children. (Yes, there were children. Guess what, they were getting schooled there. Self sustaining.) Police shot bean bags, rubber bullets, and flash-bang bombs into the crowds. A woman had her arm blown to pieces because of this. 

At every point since the beginning, there has only been peace on our end. No rioting, no fire, no weapons, no alcohol, no drugs; nothing but peace. And from the end of law enforcement has been violence. Even residents had been violent, and police did nothing to them. But they sure as hell arrested people from camp for praying - a nonviolent act.

If you are not Native, you don’t get to dictate what happens on our lands. I don’t give a damn if the government does. The government is breaking a treaty right now, ignoring tribal sovereignty. Just because they do it, does not mean you get to. I don’t care how tired you are of hearing about it. We’re tired of having our lands stolen and having our rights violated.

I guess twenty is kind of old to be getting your ears pierced for the first time. I never really thought about getting them done before, but I just thought to myself one day ’what the hell - Everyone else has theirs done, so why not at least try it?’ So I went out a couple of days later and got them done. It does still feel weird to have them done, especially when I wear long dangling earrings or big hoops and feel them banging against my neck when I move, but I like how they look, and I’m glad I decided to get them done.

I have to get this off my chest

I’m genuinely curious why people have such an issue with people shipping Tarjei and Henrik.

Shipping is not stalking. I do not spam their social media asking about it (I have never even asked once) I respect their privacy.

All I am doing is simply appreciating their chemistry and thinking they’d make a cute couple, what’s wrong with that!?

I’m seriously wondering. The only argument I’ve seen is that they’re real people; NEWSFLASH! People fall in love literally every single day. Why does them being actors make it any different for them!? Do you know how many co-stars have fallen in love for real? Thousands. If not hundreds of thousands. Hell, it might even be millions! They are not robots. They are capable of love, why is me thinking they are in love such a horrible thing to some of you? I truly don’t understand…

I really like the idea of Kakashi always getting interrupted right before getting his r&r. He’s about to dip his feet into a hot tub when he’s informed that some mystery man has a sharingan. He’s about to take a sip of his margarita when Sasuke’s hawk gives him the message that Naruto’s been injured. He’s just finished setting up his beach chair when Sakura calls to tell him there’s been an attack on the village. It’s too late for him, he’ll never escape team seven hell.

You know why God cast me down? Because I loved him. More than anything. And then God created… You. The little… hairless apes. And then he asked all of us to bow down before you—to love you, more than him. And I said, ‘Father, I can’t.’ I said, ‘These human beings are flawed, murderous.’ And for that, God had Michael cast me into Hell. Now, tell me, does the punishment fit the crime? Especially, when I was right? Look at what six billion of you have done to this thing, and how many of you blame me for it.

I just hit 600 folllowers. That’s surreal.  Ii'l anticipate the day it’s back at 100 followers. I’m half baffled how the hell it’s going to get 1k (because when it does, you bet my ass I’m going to link gofundmes… . Occassionally. My rule: only share those links when I have enough followers)

I am definitely still in GIVE ME ALL THE CAPTAIN AMERICA FICS mode, which means, hey, here, have some more! I’m still largely looking for post-CA2 fics, but I’m also happy with speculation fic and anything that focuses on the main four and preferably anything long. I mean, look, it’s been a week since it’s been out in the US, clearly you all should have had plenty of time to write me at least a dozen more 10k+ fics. Like, at this rate, I may have to wander over to FFNET and nobody wants that, least of all me, okay.

But I’m really glad because this movie and this fandom have made me really fall in love with Steve as a character, like, he has a sense of humor and kind of crotchety but still a really solidly good-hearted person who likes to be nice to people! And it has Natasha figuring herself out and being badass but just beginning to understand herself as a person! And Sam who is honestly perfect in every single way! And, oh, my Bucky feelings are ridiculous, like, he was made into this horrible thing against his will and yet he still has the instincts to protect and save Steve and I just– I may spend all my time crying about these dumbs, but it’s still worth it.

anonymous asked:

Have you done a reclist of fics where Derek is an Artist or an Architect? Also there's one specific fic I was praying you could find for me where Derek is a sculptor and teaches a class stiles takes?

The one specific fic with Derek is a sculptor and a teacher:

  • Quaking Aspen by popfly (M, 5k) College!AU where Stiles is a fine arts major who decides to take a sculpture class because the instructor, Professor Hale, is hot. He spends a lot of time sketching Derek instead of paying attention to the lecture parts of the class, but he still aces his final project.

Architect!Derek

  • How Derek Got His Groove Back by WhoNatural (E, 4k) Cora kicks him under the table. “Do you have the hots for the baby lawyer?” she hisses urgently, and Derek blinks at her, feeling his face heat. “Don’t be ridiculous. He’s young enough to be my—” “Younger brother,” she cuts in, and shakes her head. “Age difference excuses do not fly with me. Are you gonna ask him out? Derek, you need to do something about that.” “About what?” he says, frowning, watching as Stiles sits down at a table with a group of older, lawyer-types. “The fact that you’re both about one drink away from sex in some janitor’s closet.”
  • Up and Coming by Fanhag102 (E, 21k) Stiles and Derek work in the same building and every day ride up in the elevator together. That is pretty much the extent of their relationship—until one day the elevator breaks down, trapping the two of them inside and maybe forcing them to admit to each other that the attraction is mutual. Or, the one where Stiles and Derek have sex in an elevator.
  • Who is @DerekHale? by takeiab (E, 5k) Over the next month, Derek found himself following…well, himself. The Kid (as Derek had started referring to his twitter double) knew way too much about him. Derek could only guess it was Laura’s doing. He would often tweet about mundane things like photos from Derek’s favorite restaurant, a movie he had been thinking of seeing but hadn’t actually seen yet, observations about color or cool buildings he’d admired, and one one particularly eerie Tuesday as Derek sat down with a stack of books on incorporating natural light into office design, The Kid tweeted a treatise on the difficulty of making things both beautiful and functional which gave Derek chills. Or the one where Derek is an architect and Laura decided he needs a public image… without telling him.

Artist!Derek:

  • Kaleidoscope by Vendelin (E, 55k) Stiles spends a year before college working at the all-night coffee shop in town. It’s nice and quiet, until one dark and brooding Derek starts coming in every morning, ordering coffee so strong that it should not be fit for human consumption. Ever. Stiles tries not to be affected by the mystery guy, but it’s not like anything else happens around here, so really, what did you expect? And when he’s already in too deep, he realises he might even be in way over his head…
  • Midnight Wolf vs Abominable Snowman! by KuriKuri (T, 20k) >Derek almost makes the mistake of saying, It’s not fanartbut he manages to catch himself, biting his tongue. This stranger, who’s already identified himself as at least a casual fan of Midnight Wolf, doesn’t need to know that he actually is the artist and author, not just another fan.
  • El Corazón del Lobo by heartslogo456 (M, 22k) Derek drove back into Beacon Hills on a Tuesday morning seven years after he had left it last with one single thought: “Why am I doing this?” But in his heart, Derek knew exactly why. (In which Stiles suffers temporary memory loss and any serious emotional trauma could give him permanent damage so Scott calls Derek to come back and fake like he and Stiles are still together so that Stiles can heal)
