My mom and one of my uncles do family research because why the fuck not. Apparently through the research of church books, family trees, and now the most recently DNA tests we’ve found a number of interesting ancestors and distant relatives, lords, queens, emperors, horse thieves and a man who was at least once named “a devil for a priest” for his charming personality.
Besides dead relatives, websites that specialise in this also enable you to get the names and facebook contact some of the living people who both share your ancestry and are also doing family research, and apparently both my mom and uncle have found a big, nebulous flock of interesting people of all walks of life who share some of our ancestors.
But now they found him.
The black sheep of the family.
See, due to a number of reasons they may or may not have taught you in history class, lots of people from Europe migrated to the United States in large waves some generations back. They were met with some hostility, endured, adapted and contributed to the culture and lived happily ever after. Many finns were amongst them. Including the dude who is apparently my 15th cousin once removed of something of the sort.
And now that you know this snowflake’s backstory, here’s the more important half: He voted for Trump because he hates immigrants. He adores Finland, he adores America, he is proud of his heritage and he voted for Trump because immigrants will ruin America. Someone on facebook pointed out the hypocrisy of this as he, too, is a descendant of immigrants.
And he was like yeah, that’s why I’m moving back to Finland.
So allow me to recap: This man is from Wisconsin. He was born in the United States, as were his parents. He speaks english as a first language and is trying to study finnish as a second language, and according to my mother his grammar is atrocious. His plan is to migrate to Finland because immigrants are ruining America.
Bob from Wisconsin, I don’t think you’re going to like it here.
Friendly reminder that Klaus’ letter was preceded by “that is the beginning of another story”, which is meant to highlight key components in the letter, such as Klaus wanting to thank Caroline in person. This suggests that they do eventually meet up, and that their meeting is not a mere fleeting chapter in their lives.
This isn’t a nod to their friendship. They’ve never been just friends. This is a promise of a romantic future.
There is no doubt in my mind that if Caroline and Klaus were to ever reunite (and according to the finale they do) that Klaus would want something romantic from her. And if you believe otherwise, you’re kidding yourself.
However long it takes is a throwback to a romantic scene. A romantic scene that suggests a promise of a romantic future between the characters. This isn’t mere banter between friends. Because Caroline has never been just a friend to Klaus. It’s a promise of a romantic future.
“that is the beginning of another story” “however long it takes”
Eventually this story will be realized. And it isn’t a story about friendship.
It’s never a secret. For the first time in Kara’s thirteen years on Earth, there’s no great revelation. There isn’t anything to reveal.
This weight that she’s carried with her into every relationship outside the Danvers that she’s ever tried to build since she landed—it suddenly becomes inconsequential, when they’re together. The fact that Kara is Kryptonian, that she is Supergirl. The distinction between Kara Danvers and Kara Zor-El and National City’s resident hero. The deception; the disguise.
There’s no pretense between them, no pretending, no parts to play. They meet in the ring as Supergirl and Miss Martian, and then a few days later Kara Danvers shows up at the alien bar—and M’gann knows. It’s not something she needs to deduce or figure out after they’ve known each other a while. She just looks at Kara and she knows—it’s just a simple unconscious observation, as clear to see as the gold of Kara’s hair or the blue of her eyes.
M’gann slides Kara an Aldebaran rum and Kara doesn’t even realize that she’s still wearing her glasses.
Things Riordan needs to stop doing: PAIRING EVERY SINGLE THING IN EXISTENCE, NO MATTER IF THE BREATH OR NOT AND NOT GIVING US GOOD WLW REPRESENTATION.
I was ‘okay’ with a cyclop and harpy. ‘Why?’ when a satyr dated and had a child with a cloud (I honestly don’t want to know how that happened) but I can’t accept the fact he can have two SWORDS FLIRTING but not give us actual and good WLW representation.
Kim is a power bottom and Trini is a service top... YES THANK YOU YES!!!
GOD BLESS I’M NOT ALONE and like (edit*: IN MY OWN PERSONAL OPINION) power bottom is still a top, service top is still a bottom… so like we all agree here bUT THE DISTINCTION IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO ME OKAY
*edit had to be added because I got a dozen asks in 2 minutes arguing about what makes a power bottom and what makes a service top and honestly I’m way too pure for this conversation please have mercy asgfhdgjckjlhk
hey guys, as an autistic / adhd kid, i can’t believe i have to say this but Mayhaps You Shouldn’t Be Using Mental Illnesses As RP Sentence Starters. this shit isn’t “angst” and some of the are very harmful stereotypes, such as the notion that autism is a disease that must be “cured” or that “girls can’t have autism.” (pictured: me, an autistic girl, laughing with salad )
many OTHER sentences on this list are also triggering and reeking of ableism, so Mayhaps You Shouldn’t Do The Thing, Karen. autism doesn’t have a “look,” dyslexia doesn’t mean you’re “stupid,” you should never ask an ADHD individual “can i have your pills?” , NEVER ask someone with mobility issues if you can use their handicap parking tag, and you sure as shit don’t tell someone with an invisible illness like CF or chronic pain that “you just need more exercise.”
