I never wanted to be "extreme," but lately I've found myself completely 100% meat averse. I find it hard to eat dinner with others eating meat without retching and feeling so ill I can't eat my own food. I can't open the shared house fridge without thinking "that bag of chicken had names and faces and felt fear and pain and suffered" and it's killing both my appetite and ability to be social. I didn't think I could have too much ethical concern, but here I am- any advice?

I don’t think that being meat averse makes you extreme at all, it’s our society’s blind acceptance of the consumption of animal flesh, and just having dismembered bodies of sentient beings in the fridge that makes you look that way compared to everyone else. Don’t forget that disgust is very much a moral emotion, and you don’t need to be ashamed that you experience it. There are a significant number of vegans who actually won’t sit down with someone who is eating animals, or tolerate it in their household, so it’s a very legitimate course of action to take if you choose to do that. Things will be much easier for you when you live in a household where you’re in control of what goes in the fridge, but for now perhaps you could negotiate having your own section of the fridge, or a draw set aside specifically for meat and cheese which you don’t go in? It’s far more hygienic that way anyway, and I’d hope your housemates would be willing to compromise given the impact it is having on you. 

Trevor Noah is great because he can call out people like Donald Trump and Tomi Lahren in a way that even Jon Stewart never could.

“You don’t know what real racism and working class suffering is, you silly pampered NYC liberal!”

“I grew up in apartheid South Africa, my own birth was technically illegal, I couldn’t play outside as a child because I was obviously mixed race and I have seen my fair share of crazy egotistical fascist demagogue dictators.”

That’s why Noah stands out amongst late night talk show hosts. Most of them now are like: “How could this ever have happened!? In our country?”

He’s like: “Nah, I know exactly how this happened.”

Perspective, man. 

Tbh I always thought that the whole “I have eaten the fruit of the land of the death” excuse that Persephone gave her mother was kinda convenient so consider this:

Hades “kidnaps” Persephone, but what he’s really doing is helping his real live actual girlfriend escape the clutches of emotionally abusive/toxic mom Demeter (see “I can’t talk to my daughter for six months so I’m gonna mope and make the rest of the world suffer with me”)

Super clingy mom Demeter shows up and demands her daughter come back with her, using her own emotional stability and the fucking FATE OF THE WORLD as a guilt trip

“I would totally love to mom, but wouldn’t you know it, I ate this one pomegranate seed and as a result I’m stuck here forever so you should probs just leave and forget about me because it looks like I’m dead forev–”

Zeus shows up.

“Nah man, as king of the gods I can totes negate the effect of those pomegranate seeds, and let you go back to the real world with your mom.”

Cue frantic head shaking and silent pleads from Persephone & Hades from behind Demeter’s back for Zeus to shut the fuck up man, that is not the plan. Zeus catches on instantly.

“But only for half the year, because, uh the laws of–you know, biology or some shit?”

The goddess of flowers and the queen of hell quietly contemplates what she will plant on Zeus’s grave after she murders him.

I was tagged by the lovely @orange-lightsaber to show some of the art I made in 2016 and…well… when it comes to fandom this is ALL the art I made in 2016 lol It’s hard to find time, unfortunately, so most of the pieces I made were fanfic-centric to my own writing (sorry ;_; I suffer from compulsively having to draw the scenes I can’t shake), along with two general Reylo pieces for fun. 

Fanfic images are for A Proposal by Any Other Name (Leap Year Reylo AU) and A Dance of Titans (canon verse Reylux). Hopefully this year I can just make more general art for fun, though! 

I tag @clefslair @reylotogo @persimonne and any other artists who want to share theirs!

[[forgiveness]]

a morning CS drabble, spec for 6x13 (or whenever Killian tells Emma)

“Our family is… complicated,” Emma sighed, wrapping her arms around Killian’s waist and drawing him near.

“That’s one word for it.” She could hear the self-loathing in his tone. He wanted her to get angry, she thought. He wanted her to lash out, punish him, maybe kick him out of his own home. But why would she do a thing like that when she knew he was suffering over this?

“It sucks. I know it does. I won’t pretend that Dad won’t be pissed about it for a while. But he’ll forgive you.”

“How can you be so sure?”

“Because I know my family. And we are there for each other. Forgiveness is kinda our thing. Or have you forgotten about how we’ve all accepted Regina into this family after everything she did?” He still looked conflicted, logic warring with his guilt and heartache. “How many times do I need to tell you that you aren’t the same man you were? You’re good, Killian. And you’re an important part of this family.”

“You would love the man who murdered your grandfather?”

She shook her head, leaning forward to rest her head on his chest, half because she needed the physical connection, half to offer him privacy as his eyes glazed over.

“No. I love the man who regrets it.”

So I decided to start making these big giant knit blankets and open my own online store, which I thought I would wait til 2016 to open, fresh starts and all that.

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while may know I’ve been on the road to recovery with my mental health after suffering PTSD, depression, panic attacks and all that jazz for years after some unfortunate events I wont get into here (positive vibes lads!), its been a long road, and possibly a road I’ll be on for the rest of my life, but at least now I can make out a path to travel on, as opposed to fumbling through the thicket.

And so I named my store 10 Journeys, for the ones I’ve completed, the ones I’m still on and the ones I hope to begin in the future. 

Whatever journey you’re on, however big or small, all my love and best wishes to you in 2016.

Local lesbian attempts to find good lighting and angle to show off her, hand-me-down-from-her-6-feet-tall-cousin, pants. Fails.

stop ! telling ! chronically ! ill ! people! “at least it’s not cancer”

you are not reassuring me, and I know many others feel the same way

you are making me feel invalidated, that my complaints are unjustified, that I can’t complain about my own illness bc ‘other people have it worse’ 

suffering doesn’t need to be compared

illnesses are different. they don’t need to and can’t be compared

and stop implying that we should be happy and content that it’s not something worse. it feels a lot like you’re trying to silence us

So rewind all the way back to 7x04 when Michonne turns over to see a sleeping Rick and gets visibly frustrated, like how can he sleep soundly after all of this? Fast forward to 7x12 and now we know he hasn't been sleeping at all. And the way he took watch and was gonna play it off like he just liked doing it? It guts me. GUTS me.

Yes, I’ve been thinking about that 7x04 moment since he said he hasn’t been sleeping. And I was like, “Well you sure were sleeping that one morning…🤔” But I also thought about how he woke up so easily when Michonne left, and maybe that was after being up all night. He seems to be stealing naps when he can, which made me sad on its own. But I almost forgot about him pretending he liked keeping watch! Ugh, my heart. He was just gonna suffer in silence.

3 days ago I got this message from Taylor Nation that changed a lot of things.

It changed the way I feel about myself. I no longer feel invisible in those huge crowds.

I now feel blessed and that people are here supporting me, that I have MANY friends. And that people can be beautiful and selfless. Even people that dont know you very much.

It also changed the way my year is ending, Im ending my year with hope and love and happiness.

It changed the way im waiting for next year. Im eager, im excited, im overwhelmed in a really good way.

but mostly, it changed the view of February 4th.
This time im not alone. This time people took their time to help me. This time I was noticed.

This time I dont have to suffer on my own. This time my sister is going to be on my heart, as every day on my life, but this time she will be enjoying this life of mine. We will be dancing to Taylor Swift. I will get to be with the only friend that I had during my sister’s illness, and when she passed away.

I hope I get to hug her and tell her that, if not in Houston, someday. Because today I feel I can say it out loud and that people wont judge me. Most of them wont, because there are so many GOOD people around that all the hate I can get, all the jealousy I had to face it was just so small compared to all the love and support and the real selfless happiness so many of my FRIENDS felt for me.

And thats right, everyone that felt this way for me. Everyone that said something nice. That thought I should go. To everyone who helped me, who congratulated me from the heart. Who is excited for me. Who is HAPPY for me. YOU are my friend, and I love you for making me feel I belong. To make me feel I matter. That I should have a chance for once. That I deserve nice things too.

Thank you.

Thank you Taylor Nation for making my christmas miracle

Thank you AT&T for the tickets and for allowing my best friend @coffee-midnights to join me in this day that is so important for me.

Thank you @taylorswift for being my only friend for so long and for introducing me to all this wonderful people

and THANK YOU all, my friends, all the swifties that read my story and thought it was worth sharing. Thank you for giving me love and support and for making me feel like I do belong somewhere.

Im crying happy tears this time, and I know somehow, in someplace, my sister just make all of this happen. And I get to celebrate her birthday and her life dancing to Taylor Swift for all that we’ve been through.

I cant find a way to end this post without being repetitive, but just thank you, everyone for making one of my biggest dreams come true.


Taylor, see you in Houston on February 4th, we are celebrating my sister together babe💙

It’s not even been 12 hours and I’m already sick of hearing this weak-ass lame shit putting the majority or even half of the blame at the feet of the Democrats for being “wishy-washy” the last eight years or for “burning” Bernie. The Republicans have been intentionally stoking a culture of despair, inequality and suffering for decades so that they can take advantage of white misery, fear and hate all the while lining their own pockets. They set a fire near the end of the Bush administration and then spent the next two terms shouting “LET THE MOTHER BURN” only to turn around and concern troll about how terrible it is that the house has been reduced to ashes. It’s abysmal that the mainstream media and the Democrats gave even a shred of legitimacy to Trump’s campaign. It’s irresponsible that the Democrats think that sliding ever further center-right-right-right is going to help them appeal to people who hate their guts because of propagandist conspiracy theories that have thirty years of careful framing to give them steel legs. It sucks, it sucks, it sucks.

But let’s not forget even for a moment that the Republicans are a theocratic, oligarchical authoritarian party that has enacted countless policies specifically designed to create the worst conditions possible for their core voter base (on top of their fanatical, dehumanizing disdain for anyone outside that demographic) because they know and have admitted that keeping rural white people starved and uneducated and desperate is the path of least resistance to the White House for them. This isn’t the first time they’ve done it. The performative Republican disgust for Trump was because a lot of them didn’t think they could be so honest about it in 2016. 

Acting like the other party has an equal share of the blame in this mess is holding everyone but the furthest right of the Right to such impossibly high fucking standards that the Right can show up to a political debate with a bucket of their own feces and use it to smear slurs all over the stage and we’ll still be saying: “Well, you gotta let both sides say their peace, that’s just fair”. That is basically what happened in several elections and referendums globally this year.

The Democrats greatest sin in this election cycle was attempting to barter legitimate politics with the fucking Void.

Sorrow and depression can at times be understood as a sign of the loss of self. Many tend to look down upon those whom are unable to see and practice positivity to their capacity. An unequivocal comparative in my opinion.

On the antithetical spectrum, I tend to frequent the feeling of being lesser to those who have suffered more deeply than I have. Those who think and feel far more profoundly than I, those who have face-planted rock bottom, yet look over their shoulder still capable of empathizing with the next person; giving their own qualms a backseat. I envy their ability to operate at a much more cognitive frequency than I. These people are often much stronger than even they themselves know.

in light of that one interview i just want this scene
  • corrupted jasper writhing on the ground or s/t: we all get what we deserve, I deserved for this to happen
  • garnet, sitting placidly cross-legged on her shoulder: the hilarious thing is that's completely true but not for any of the reasons you think
Just for Tonight (Jongin)

Genre: Angst, Fluff

A/N: This is the longest imagine I’ve ever written and I’m so proud of myself. I got this idea after reading some quote off of some blog that I couldn’t find again, but it stuck with me so I decided to write an imagine about it.

Summary: You and Jongin have broken up, but Jongin shows up at your door at 3 am saying he has a meeting tomorrow and can’t sleep without you.
