i am not going back to black

Yeah I dunno why but this part in “Across the Universe” gets me every time. You can see the moment when Keith starts to panic,

Not because he has no idea where they landed, or where they are, but because Shiro isn’t there,

And his eyes get wide and his expression just… I dunno, it speaks volumes to me. This, this is what Keith must’ve been like after the season two finale, after Shiro’s disappearance. We saw him go through the first three photos when they stood in the Black Lion, staring at the empty pilot’s chair, but I think this is what Keith felt like, after the shock. Scared, worried, panicked. He probably kept it under wraps in front of the team, but still. Look at his face.

I know “Shiro” is back now, but I still like to torture myself about the end of s2 and I am deeply sorry just ignore me tbh

Sometimes I accidentally click “like” on something when I’m scrolling through my dash and my immediate response is to unlike it and go back to what I was doing, but when that stupid little red heart shatters before my eyes, what else am I supposed to do? So after immediately unliking the post, I like it again and see the red heart whole again which warms my black-as-coal heart and then I see the post and actually appreciate the information it’s shared with me and then I wonder why I even unliked it in the first place.

ok but at the start, they seriously told us with visuals who would pilot the lions, other than their designated pilots………………….

pidge and hunk are the only ones for green and yellow….

we don’t see a mini blue lion or learn anything about what it looks for in a paladin because lance interrupts, but we only get shots of allura and lance while the blue lion is being discussed….. allura goes on to pilot blue.

the red lion is in between keith and lance…. lance pilots red at the current time. this makes the shot of the black lion and who is shown with it very intriguing….

shiro is there, of course… then keith, his head completely in the frame. he’s now piloting black. then — barely there but there, nonetheless — there’s lance.

anonymous asked:

Wait, who's whitewashed in New Mutants?

*Cracks knuckles*

Roberto “Bobby” da Costa AKA Sunspot is a biracial, white/Black Brazilian man. (The fact that he is Black is actually a crucial part of his origin story too, considering he discovered his powers because racist assholes physically and verbally assaulted him in the middle of a soccer game.)

This is Bobby in the comics, vs his actor, Henry Zaga:

They got the Brazilian thing right, but gee… something seems to be missing. I wonder what it is.

Cecilia Reyes is a Black Puerto Rican woman. She was originally going to be played by Rosario Dawson, (while not perfect, definitely better than who they ended up with) who backed out of the role for reasons unknown. (She probably saw what shit it is.)

This is Cecilia in the comics, vs her actress, Alice Braga:

Well, isn’t that weird. But what an innocent mistake, am I right?

Danielle “Dani” Moonstar AKA Mirage is a Cheyenne woman. A Cheyenne woman with dark skin, and who you could never call whitepassing. 
(Dani has also been one of Marvel’s punching bags for a while now, and I am still eagerly waiting for them to give her her powers back and let her rejoin the X-Men where she belongs instead of fucking around in Asgard.)

This is Dani in the comics, vs her actress, Blu Hunt:

Huh, interesting. I’m sure casting a whitepassing native girl is totally coincidentally matched with the other whitewashing, yeah?

“But Blu Hunt is a First Nations woman, shouldn’t you, a First Nations woman, be happy they didn’t cast a white woman to play Dani?” Well, yes and no. Yes, I’m not as angry as I would be if they casted a white actress, as Hollywood ever so frequently does. But we are not required to be happy for Hollywood doing the absolute bare minimum when they should be aiming for accuracy. You know what the optimal casting would be? A dark skinned Cheyenne woman. Like Dani. But I would have been pleased with at least a dark skinned native girl period. And when you pair this casting with the casting of the two other characters of colour, it’s really fucking interesting how supposedly out of their international search for actresses, they could only find a whitepassing girl as suitable to play this very much not whitepassing character.
Like, if someone came up to me and said “Hey, do you want to play Dani, we know she’s one of your favourite characters!” I would say no. Because while I am half Mi’kmaw, I am whitepassing, and Dani is not.

And finally…

Xi’an “Shan” Coy Manh AKA Karma is a Vietnamese lesbian, who eventually is also an amputee. Shan was the first leader of the New Mutants…

And yet she is not even in this movie. They just. Cut her out. She is the leader of the very team they are making the movie about and they erased her entirely from it.

“An Asian lesbian you say? Oh no. We can’t have that in our movie.” 

Now, all of these characters have faced whitewashing in the comics from time to time, as well. Comicbook whitewashing is a thing. But that doesn’t mean the movies should follow suit. I’ve seen people post pictures of whitewashed art of these characters and say “look, it’s great casting!” You are comparing whitewashing to whitewashing and need to shut the fuck up.

So, this is my biggest problem with the New Mutants movie, if you can even call it that.

…My second biggest problem is that it’s fairly fucking obvious what the plot of the movie is, based on the trailer and comic knowledge, and I’m gonna go ahead and skip a story about the kidnapping and torture of an Indigenous child with the ability to create illusions out of people’s fears and thus turns the place into a haunted house and by extension is the villain of the movie by what will surely be a Shocking™ plot twist.

So I know like 90% of the fandom is against black paladin Keith and like for the most part, I’m kinda iffy about it myself. But hear me out. Black paladin Keith… whose right-hand man is Lance. Lance acts as an advisor of sorts, whom Keith trusts, no questions asked. If Shiro isn’t going to listen to Lance, Keith will. Keith already knows Lance is capable and takes the mission seriously (even though he seems to take little else seriously. That’s not to say he isn’t serious, just he copes differently). They have already experienced first hand that working together yields success. And already we can see that when it gets down the nitty gritty, they fall into a harmonious efficiency, despite the air of competitiveness between them. Keith is the drive and the passion and Lance, the patience and positivity. Together they make an unstoppable force. A good team, if you will.

I’ve been seeing a man in my backyard for the past two nights

Story by reddit user Opinionson

To start I need to give some background:

I am a male who lives in relatively nice neighborhood

It’s your average small town run of the mill suburbs area with not a lot of people.

I am a college kid who’s home on break while my parents have gone away which doesn’t help at all.

I have a two story house

I do not have gun nor do I have any real weapons other than kitchen knives

I am not on any medication and I have no record of schizophrenia or any other mental illnesses

I barely have any relationships with my neighbors most of whom are elderly and the rest I have minimal contact with

I do not have any people in my neighborhood (that I know of) who have reasons to attack or harm me

Now, let’s get into what has been happening. About two nights ago I woke up very late in the night and I went to the bathroom to go take a shit. Now, my second story bathroom has a window that can see the entirety of my backyard. Directly behind it is a cul de sac which you can see directly into. There is a group of trees and pile of rocks and mulch that divides it. Usually I can see everything in my backroom without turning on my because lights from my neighbor’s house dimly lights the room.

Keep reading

I was forcibly outed (i have no gender) on 2/9/16, which lead to two suicide attempts. 

It’s the second one that landed me in the hospital and got my school to tell me I have to go back to my family. My family is abusive, so I am now homeless and registered in the NYC homeless shelter system. 

If you want to help me financially, you can help get these things for me, or paypal to iliketoeatplums@gmail.com 

it’s totally okay if you don’t have money rn etc.! if you want to help me in another way:

anonymous asked:

am i the only one whos salty that shiro did so much to bond with his lion. he went to great lengths to strengthen his bond only for it to basically go to waste? like will shiro really not be a paladin again?! was him getting the bayard back, fighting zarkon, activating the wings, getting to know about his lion's bg, and seeing through black's eyes really all for nothing? all of that work so he could stay back at hq and give out orders? i'm pretty bitter tbh

ok but ya me too honestly

honestly it’s not even just that starz had the balls to make Flint gay but they also just went for it & had no qualms putting it into his story? like with a lot of gay characters the writers will usually go to great lengths to ensure ppl know they’re Not Just Gay & are Just Like Everyone Else (straight ppl) & they usually can’t even call themselves gay or have a love interest. But Black Sails tells that to fuck off lmao they not only made Flint gay, but they made it a huge part of his characterisation, as is realistic. Flint literally wouldn’t be Flint if he wasn’t gay. Literally ‘Flint’ wouldn’t exist. his personality is completely shaped by the reaction society had to him being gay. his rage and grief both stem from homophobia. he’s got a hang-up about how he’s perceived? guess where that comes from. he has issues about his own morality & being called a monster? integrally shaped by being branded 'loathsome’ for loving and wanting men. his motivation is for most of the show is to avenge his lover. his story at the end is about him trying to find his lover again, thereby wrapping up the show. he doesn’t feel like most gay characters on tv, like they’re straight ppl who got the Gay Trope added to them last minute for diversity points. you can’t separate Flint from his experiences being gay because like real LGBT people, being LGBT is an integral part of his existence & experience & personality

A QUICK LOOK AT AN ARMY’s THOUGHTS RN:

  • I cried because wings tour was over … well, it’s not. BigHit keeps announcing new dates. “GIVE ME BACK MY EMOTIONS AND TEARS”. This comeback will start a new era, but why is the wings tour still going on? there must be something fishy linking the two !! OMG !!
  • OH SH*T I FORGOT ABOUT BTS MEMORIES 2016. That thing is coming too …

Is Jimin going back to black? Is Jin going back to blond? Are V and Jhope’s foreheads gonna be shown? Don’t you dare try a weird hair style on Rapmon jdcjdjdbchdb

Totally useless information: I am that kind of person who wears grey or navy and calls that a colourful outfit. I am an all-in-black person, but sometimes I wear green like this one: a slightly darker that what we would nowadays call olive or military green.

This court coat and waistcoat are wonderful examples of the clothing that was needed to be worn in (duh) court at the end of the century: perfect, heavily decorated, hiper elegant and pretty much over the top. Damn, I wish I could embroider like that… or even make a proper coat (JUST LOOK AT THE BACK PLEATS!! Sorry, I’ll go cry in the corner).

Green velvet court coat and matching ivory satin waistcoat, ca, 1790, France.

We are part of the generation that erases and destroys our history in all the wrong ways.

BlackLivesMatter makes a mockery of the Black Power movement from the 60s, doing more harm for race relations than good.

Feminism has all but been burned into ashes by surpassing equality to focus on supremacy, to the point where it’s frowned upon to consider yourself a part of the modern day iteration.

The LGTB+ community has become the very thing it tried so hard to argue that it wouldn’t become, the slippery slope. It’s become entirely too inclusive of imaginary identities and exclusive of actual ones.

Antifa is a laughable band of terrorists playing a 4D game of D&D where they roleplay as anti-fascists while unknowingly being fascists themselves.

And believe me, it’s not just the Left embarrassing and erasing history. Even if you’re a white supremacist/neo-Nazi, you’re embarrassing yourselves.

The Alternative Right, Neo-Nazi, White Supremacists, or whatever you want to call them, are nothing compared to the groups whose history they invoke and would themselves be laughingstocks if only the Left would stop building them up to be an amassing credible threat.

The Left pose a credible threat to the Freedom of Speech, while the Right pose a credible threat to Freedom of the Press.

I’ve heard the phrase “post-truth society” and I couldn’t agree more. We are a society beyond truth. We actively deny it and obfuscate it, filling it with whatever ‘truth’ we believe in. I, myself, am not exempt from this.

Whether it’s real or not, there are groups of people who feel their lives are in constant danger; their rights are being taken away; their enemies are being empowered; that they are being oppressed.

We are going backwards as a society; backwards as a nation. We’ve hit the reset button, there’s no undoing that fact. The only thing we can do now is make sure that we end up back on the same path as before, otherwise the result, I fear, will be a lot less pretty.

The Tea is Decaf

Dean/Cas, Sam/Eileen
Based on this text post

Castiel just barely slips out the door into the hallway and turns the knob as he closes it so the latch doesn’t make a sound. The light is always on in the hallway, and Dean always wakes up if too much of it pours into his room, so Castiel has mastered the art of slipping through the smallest space possible.

He breathes a sigh of relief once he’s in the hallway.

A small voice to his right lets out an amused laugh. He turns to see a particularly tiny woman wearing a very large plaid shirt and nothing else. Well, he supposes she could be wearing shorts under the shirt. It really is very big on her.

“You must be Castiel,” she says rather loudly, mispronouncing his name just slightly.

He walks over to her with a finger to his lips.

She puts her hand over her mouth in embarrassment before signing, I’m deaf.

Castiel mouths an “oh” before dropping his head and laughing. He then pops his head back up fast and mouths, “Are you Eileen?”

She nods eagerly and signs, You’ve heard about me?

Sam has mentioned you a few times, he signs back. He says you’re a very good hunter.

Her face lights up. You’re damn right I am. Still, that’s very sweet of him.

So, are you two…? Castiel looks back toward Sam’s room and then down at Eileen’s shirt.

Eileen’s eyes widen in embarrassment. He’s asleep. I was just going to the bathroom.

I was heading to the kitchen for a cup of tea. Would you like some?

Is there caffeine in it?

Not at 4 in the morning.

Eileen smiles and gives him a thumbs up before moving past him toward the bathroom. Castiel watches her go for a second before it hits him.

He looks down at his plain black t-shirt and too-small boxer briefs and wonders if Eileen could tell that these clothes aren’t his. And that he came out of Dean’s room instead of one of the countless other extra bedrooms in the bunker.

By the time Eileen pads into the kitchen, Castiel has two mugs ready with decaf teabags in them and he’s standing at the stove staring at the pot so he can pull it off the burner before it whistles.

It’s only a minute longer before Cas pours the water into the mugs and takes a seat across from Eileen at the kitchen table.

You’re an angel, aren’t you? Eileen asks as her tea steeps.

Castiel nods as he takes a drink.

Does that mean you don’t sleep?

Sometimes I do. I didn’t feel like it tonight.

Is Dean good in bed?
