i can't even comment on this one


I’m practically taking an expression screencap from every episode lately to use in chats because they convey more than I ever could express with words


I know it’s Christmas and I don’t want to be posting this first thing but…

I couldn’t sleep and I go on Twitter and I see this shit.

And I’m really sad now.

another quick lil’ PSA

If somebody is in a costume, even one of a character, they are still somebody in a costume.  They are not, in fact, the character.

It does not matter what your intent is, whether it’s as a joke or not: harrassment of a person in a costume is still harrassment of a person.

Do not make sexual comments to people in costumes.  Do not ignore their physical barriers and try to justify your behavior with “but I’m doing this to the character, not to the person!”

You are not “glomping” the real live Sans, or the real live Bendy, or the real live Rose Quartz or whoever.  You are forcing yourself upon a human being in a costume.

Intent does not matter: the end result is that this behavior is both inappropriate and, in some cases, worthy of legal charges.

If somebody tells you that what you are doing or have done is making them uncomfortable, the appropriate response is not to go “you hurt my feelings; I’m a very emotional person!!”  The appropriate response is to apologize sincerely (WITHOUT making it about you; none of this “don’t hate me, i’m crying right now” shit is a real apology) and to back off and leave the person alone.

And it is never, ever, EVER appropriate to touch somebody without their express consent.

Can’t Fear Your Own World ad translation as requested:

serialisation will commence every other week!! (referring to the Bleach app) Remaining mysteries will become clear…

Hisagi Shūhei, vice captain of squad 9 and editor-in-chief of the Seireitei communication, is the main character.

Rangiku: “wait a minute!! Why is Shūhei the main character!!

Shūhei: "it’s inevitable isn’t it?!! Even I would like to use Bankai!!”

An assassination attempt aimed at the four great noble clans. An unknown shinigami attacks the Quincy and the Arrancar that survived in Hueco Mundo. A rapidly growing, mysterious religious group in the Human World…The turmoil in each of the three realms of existence was rooted in the new head of the Tsunayashiro family, one of the four great noble clans. Apart from being a shinigami, Hisagi Shūhei approaches the case from a journalistic viewpoint. However, he does not yet know that he is trying to touch the fearful secrets of Soul Society itself…!!

I'm going to make my peace about this whole OtaYuri mess. I live in Massachusetts where the aoc is 16, and even if I didn't live here I'd have the same opinion. An 18 year old dating a 15/16 year old is perfectly normal. It happens all the time in high school. As long as the relationship is healthy, both parties are happy, and they are doing what they are comfortable with it's fine. Not only that but these are fictional characters. There should be no argument over this and one that I can't stand

I really respect your opinion and love your blog. I'm having a hard time understanding Sam's likes of MM's tweets and IG's when he never has before. Funnily enough Cait seems to be commenting more on HIS IG. The whole thing to me is v confusing. Is the liking of MM's tweets supposed to keep up some kind of narrative? The rugby pic clearly showed to me ppl love them together. Plus, I can't see a relationship with MM surviving after all things recently. V confused. Would ❤ yr thoughts. TY!

Thanks anon!
The liking of MM’s tweets actually fits very well with what we have been seeing recently from Sam and Cait. Ever since they left LA- even as soon as the Seattle fan con- they abruptly changed the narrative back to the self reported one of Sam and Cait as a couple. It’s the one that always seems most natural for them and predominates whenever they are not in LA. The fact that this narrative is self reported by both of them in their own words and actions on their own social media makes it a very hard one to discount. In fact the latest attempt to do so backfired rather badly when the press who reported on the rugby selfie of the two of them were saying on one hand how cuddly and happy they were together- which was really the only comment that could be made by anyone who saw that pic-and then awkwardly inserting what was obviously hand fed spin info about how Sam and some other girl called MM were “red carpet official”- which is not true at all as no red carpets were walked together at the cocktail party that both attended during Oscars week. Actually there is only an interior photo op that featured MM and Sam in a pic standing together, and then Sam included her in one of his photo ops with the party sponsors.
That someone is trying to make sketchy evidence from two pics taken from one party into a grand romance makes it all the more apparent that someone who is trying to support the Sam MM narrative doth protest this cuddly Sam Cait selfie overmuch, methinks! And that makes me trust what I, and almost 86 thousand other people, see in that selfie all the more!

So what do Sam’s latest likes of MM’s posts, or her likes of his, have to do with it?
If you look at what it is that Sam is liking, it is “keeping it professional” stuff that is being rewarded with likes. Her about to go running/arrow pointing north post got a like for a comment about “a step in the right direction” probably for her choice to post about exercise and encouraging other to do so. His other like was for a post that made it abundantly clear that she was traveling in the Pacific Northwest and was not inviting innuendo about her possibly being in SA by leaving her current location unknown.
In return MM has been liking Sam’s fitness and Barbour posts- both of which are professional topics.
It’s strictly business- and MM’s likes are mirroring Sam’s friend Amy Shiel’s likes which further support the “friends” scenario.

But Sam and Cait are definitely upping their “together” game in their recent interactions- probably in answer to the upping of the Sam and MM game during Oscars week in LA. In fact Sam and Cait started this even before they left LA with Sam’s making quite clear that he was spending his days and evenings with his old crowd of friends and with his friend Valbo who was also visiting LA at the time. By Sam’s own words there would not be much time left over for the romance that was being hinted at by the “official” narrative. Then they were very couply looking at the Seattle fan con and not a whiff of MM to be seen even though that is her “home turf”. Once they got to SA we have got pics of Sam and Cait at drinks and rugby and shopping together. They presented a united front with a retweet of an anti bullying message. And now Cait has taken to commenting on Sam’s posts, putting herself into the conversation between Sam and his fans that these posts represent. The same way a wife or partner would feel comfortable inserting themselves into a spouse’s conversation at a party.

So the way I see it the likes from Sam are actually in service of his and Cait’s “together” narrative. Those likes are in keeping with the sort of interaction that two friends or acquaintances might have. And these stand in contrast to what Sam and Cait are showing with their posts and comments on each other’s social media- a pattern that says they are more than friends to each other. A pattern that has been consistent with them for almost four years now.

Hey I just found your comments about the decline of ragehappy and domination of Fake AH Crew AU's. I've been trying to break in and my only real success has been my one GTA story. There were two I put literal days into writing and people just didn't even give a shit. It's super disheartening because I feel like the only way to do well outside of Fake AH is to be already well known - but you can't do that without compromising what you want to write anymore...

Hey anon, yeah it does really suck that fake AH Crew fics get more attention than others. But , to be fair , the ragehappy side of the fandom has severely declined in general. I remember like last year, I could post a fic and get 20 comments in a day, Fake AH Crew or otherwise! Now I’m lucky to get a few. Interest has just severely declined and I’m not sure why. Hopefully it will pick up again soon but , i don’t know. Maybe a lot of us have just grown out of AH. Even I find myself watching and keeping up with the content less and less these days.

But if you wanna link me to your fic I’d happily read it / show some love !!!! :)

anonymous asked:

i don't know if this counts as a prompt request (if so feel free to ignore!) but do you have any headcanons for jake and amy on valentine's day? an idea of mine is that they're both working late and so they can't go out for dinner or anything and thus jake feels bad and buys amy all the tacky valentine's gifts he can find within a mile radius of the precinct

this got away from me tbh

It starts out with one little innocent comment, as these things usually do. Amy honestly hadn’t meant anything by it - hadn’t even graced the words with a second thought as they left her mouth - because in her mind, it was all categorized as ‘insignificant.’ Stupid, really, would be the better word, but that’s neither here nor there at this point.

This point being 3 AM on Valentine’s day. This point also being her desk, the surface of which is currently buried beneath what appears to be a veritable hoarder’s nest - assuming that hoarder has a fixation on Hallmark’s most successful business venture.

There are five singing teddy bears and at least a dozen boxes of chocolates, six dozen plastic roses (and one dozen real roses in a vase balancing in the inch-wide gap between her desk and Jake’s), all manner of pink and red confetti and plastic hearts and three paper silhouettes of the patron saint himself. Even her chair fell victim: the fuzzy pink blanket is soft as it slips between her fingers.

“Jake,” she says, and his name comes out a bit choked. He’s standing a foot behind her, practically radiating with pride at his work (and it is his work, she knows this beyond a doubt - where the hell else would he have been for the last ninety minutes?). “What - what the hell.”

She hears him shuffle behind her, and then another teddy bear with white fur slides into her vision on her right. She leans away from it, eyeing the red heart sewn between the bear’s paws, before lifting her gaze to stare at his wide, delighted grin. “Did it all while you were interviewing Peters.”

“I - God.” Amy snatches the teddy bear out of his hands. “What happened to not doing anything for Valentine’s Day?” She snaps.

He looks only slightly put-out at her reaction. “I decided not to do nothing,” he says with a shrug. He’s maddeningly, furiously unrepentant. “Oh, c’mon, Amy! I couldn’t not do something after that Teddy comment.”

It’s suddenly very difficult to resist stamping her foot and growling in frustration. “For the last time,” she says, fists clenched around the teddy bear, “it doesn’t matter. The steakhouse wasn’t even that good, and he spent more time arguing with the waiters than actually talking to me. Literally nothing at all would be better than that night.”

“I know!” He gestures to her desk. “That’s why this should completely and totally blow your expectations out of the water! I wiped every bodega within a five-mile radius out, babe. I’m basically the king of Valentine’s Day.”

“Buying a bunch of cheap crap at midnight on Valentine’s Day does not make you the king.” She informs him loftily, which she thinks would normally make him feel bad, except she can’t stop running her fingers through the teddy bear’s fur and he’s definitely noticed the movement. “Ugh. Thank you, or whatever.”

“Sheesh, what is it with you and this holiday?”

“It’s stupid! It’s not even a real holiday! It’s all a conspiracy created by Hallmark to -”

“Hey, Ames? You - you’re allowed to be happy, y’know.”

Jake’s studiously avoiding her gaze now, too busy focusing on rearranging the confetti on her desk. She deflates all at once, suddenly feeling like a complete and total jackass. A complete and total jackass going for nearly twenty-four hours on only three hours of sleep, but a jackass nonetheless. “Jake,” she exhales, and his expression is guarded when he peers up at her through his lashes. “I am happy. I really am. This isn’t - it’s not about us. I just hate this holiday.”

“Not as much as Halloween.”

He’s smiling again, which is a good sign, so she releases a long sigh and nods, before dropping heavily down into her desk chair. “You’re right. Nothing will ever top Halloween. I’m sorry I - it’s just that, I’ve…I’ve never had a good Valentine’s Day.” He furrows his brow as he sits in her guest chair, leaned toward her with his elbows on his knees. “I’ve either been alone, or with the wrong guy, and - I don’t know. I just don’t like it.”

“That’s okay. I’ll like it enough for the both of us.” He reaches for her hand and she gives it to him willingly, smiling in spite of herself at the familiar contact. “We both have tomorrow off, and we don’t have to do anything - we can just hang out and watch TV in our PJ’s. Maybe we can go visit Gina in the hospital or something. It doesn’t matter - I just wanna hang out with you.”

His smile is genuine, but there’s a certain calculating edge to his gaze, so she narrows her eyes suspiciously. “What do you have planned right now?”

“I don’t have anything planned. Have you met me? I don’t plan.”

“I call BS, Peralta. Tell me.”

“Ugh, fine, I have dinner reservations. But I can call and cancel, it’s so not a big deal -”

“Jake,” she interrupts, and then she leans forward and gently squeezes his fingers until he meets her in the middle for a slow, chaste kiss. “Dinner sounds…nice.” She murmurs when he breaks away.

His grin is blinding has he jumps up, pulling her up to her feet, only broadening when she laughs. “It’s gonna be great, I promise. I promise I won’t even talk to the waiter.”

Jake starts toward the elevator, but Amy pulls him back sharply with the hand still clasped in his. “Uh, if you think I’m letting you leave my desk like this -” she gestures to the mess “- you clearly don’t know me at all.”

“But it’s Valentine’s Day!”

“And it’s my desk!

“You’re lucky I love you, Santiago.”

Amy grins. “Believe me, I know.”

Folks… a bit of healthy competitiveness is good.  It keeps you going, and drives you to make yourself better.

But it’s really not normally appropriate to be overtly competitive with folks over things that are genuinely no big deal, especially if you don’t even know that person.

Like… seeing something that somebody else made independently from you and perceiving it as competition is fine, I guess, but when you make a point to openly challenge that person and give ‘em fighting words… when that person wasn’t even really aiming it at you or at anyone in general and was just sharing it… that’s kinda not cool?

I dunno, I just don’t like waking up to find somebody I don’t know from Adam is saying stuff like “NO YOU CAN’T DO THIS, I’M GONNA BE THE ONE TO WIN” in the comments on my stuff when I was just sharing something that I thought I’d done a decent job with.  That’s not really friendly or funny, it’s just kinda rude.

"Should I break your legs? So you can't ever run away" 2p Italy please?

“Let me go!” you demanded, as you struggled to break free. Around your wrists were handcuffs keeping you tied to a bed.

“You’re quite the fighter, aren’t you?” Luciano commented. “Even after all the bleeding and all that screaming, you still haven’t given up. I admire your tenacity.”

You glared, but remained silent. You’ll never admit it, but you were afraid of him. All those months of being stalked, harassed, and hunted down, he left you paranoid and frightened. But you couldn’t show that. After all, that is the one thing he wanted you to do. Give up.

Scowling, you watched the Italian drag a chair from a nearby desk to the side of your bed. His bed. There, he sat.

“Listen, Bella. I love you very much. I wouldn’t have hurt you if you weren’t so… Disobedient.”

You felt goosebumps around your arms. You felt an icy, agitating feeling course throughout your body. The scornful smirk, his eyes that glowed with trouble… Nothing good happens when he has that expression on his face.

“But. If no punishment will work on you, then…” Luciano paused, thoughtfully. Then, the smile on his face widened as he thought of an idea. A bad one… You gulped.

“Should I break your legs?” he mused. “That way, you can never, ever run away again.”

At this point, you became an agitated wreck. Even though it was near impossible to break free from the handcuffs, you pulled and yanked. There was no way you’re going to be stuck here. No way!

You still remember those nights. Luciano would whip you, cut you, poison you, and so forth. He would watch you as you endure all the pain. Only because you tried to run away…

“Don’t fret. You won’t feel it when it happens.”

“No! Luciano, please! Please! Don’t do this!” You pleaded, tears streaming down your cheeks. Your heart pounded against your chest, and the pain around your wrists were unbearable from all the pulling that you did.

“Sogni d’oro.”

Luciano pulled something from his pocket. Something similar to a cloth. Hopelessly, you could only watch him clamp the piece of cloth over your nose and mouth. You could smell something strong. Something similar to a chemical.

It was too late when you realized what it was. Your frantic attitude was no more in less than a minute as you became weaker. Simply holding onto his hands were difficult. Before you lost consciousness, you had a final glance on Luciano’s devilish smile.

Gently like he was holding a precious doll, he laid you on the bed. Running his fingers down your hair, he felt victorious, but also relieved. He didn’t originally think of crushing or cutting your legs off, but he almost lost you for a second. He was too careless that he actually lost sight of you.

While it was fun letting you run away and make you think that you actually had the chance to escape, he wouldn’t want to experience that feeling of loss again. He had went this far, and he finally has you in his arms. If he ever lost you, he would go mad.

After he regained his composure, he took his phone from his coat pocket. About the plan of breaking your legs…

the longer i’ve been in the les mis fandom, the more and more i get convinced that if enjolras and grantaire ever get married, they would literally just make the snap decision to go to the court, do it, sign the papers, use combeferre as their witness, and then just. not bother to tell anyone. like, combeferre isn’t really sure what’s going on with them, so he just doesn’t bring it up, and it’s another month until one of les amis makes a joking comment like “wow, you two act like an old married couple” and enjolras kind of off-handedly replies “well, we are married” and. everyone just. ???????????????????????????

anonymous asked:

"And I do believe in many US terrorist shootings, for some reason, it’s also usually the police who finally stop the suspects, not a bystander with a gun." Because when a citizen shoots and kills a terrorists or criminal, the news doesn't report it because it's against the narrative that no one ever defended themselves with a gun. I also completely ignored your comments on body count. You can't compare the islands of the U.K. to the US. Size, geography and population don't even compare.

Let’s deal with this shall we? 

1. You were the one who originally made the assertion that most of the times terrorists in the US are stopped by citizens with guns. Whether in law or academia, it’s incumbent on a person making the claim to substantiate. And what’s your answer? ‘The news doesn’t report it’? That’s not an answer, I’m afraid. I’m well aware there are instances of successful self-defence when it comes to some cases of gun crime but I am saying when it comes terrorist violence in the United States, they are by and large stopped by the authorities. That you usually need specially trained people to deal with it in a complex security operation. Terrorism is not the same as a crime where somebody takes out their gun in a fit or anger or just to commit a drive-by shooting. It’s calculated political violence aiming to maximise casualties, it usually involves a great degree of premeditation. Care to show me instances where the news media didn’t report at all on a terrorist attack stopped by a civilian with a gun? Kinda hard to completely not report terrorist attacks. 

2. Moving the goalposts now, are we? I’m saying that there’s no evidence for your claim that the more guns people have the safer a community is- by pointing to other countries. You’re gonna ‘completely ignore’ my comments on body count when there’s a thing called per capita homicide rate? That’s how we scale comparisons between countries that have different populations. If I calculate at rates per 1000 people, much of Western Europe, Japan, South Korea, Canada, Australia and New Zealand still have lower homicide rates than the United States! Time and time again it’s glaringly obvious countries with more gun control regulations have lower homicide rates. People like to bring up the example of Switzerland claiming high gun ownership but low murder rates…when Switzerland does have lots of guns but also plenty of regulations that don’t exist in the US context. Regulations, whaddya know… Despite the hysteria in certain US media channels, the fact is people are far more likely to be murdered by someone they know or killed in an accident than by a terrorist in both the US and Europe. So I repeat- if you want to be smug about claiming that the gun control laws in Europe are why terrorists get a ‘high body count’- you really need to take a long and hard look at your country. In the UK, we prefer it that only special police units or the military have guns for the most part. And our crime rate hasn’t suffered for it, contrary to this insistence that flooding a country with guns makes it more secure. 

3. ’You can’t compare the islands of the UK to the US’- in a broader sense, this is really quite terribly ironic given that you were the one who argued the American view of guns was something fitting to impose willy nilly on another country with an entirely different size, geography, culture and historical context. Maybe, consider that not everything the United States does - even if you think it makes perfect sense in your context - fits well in others.

Not trying to be rude but can someone tell me what do you all like about lili? She's annoying said some ugly comments about f/f ships and hangs out with cole all the time either she's dating him or obsessed with him? Cami tweets about her and post pictures of her And what lili does? post pictures of herself or cole and tweet unfunny memes for rts I can't find one reason why people like her

Ummm how can you not like Lili???? She literally has only posted about Cole this past week when the whole cast is together, but she posts selfies and videos with just her and Cami hanging out like all the time. She even knew the exact distance (.7 miles) between her and Cami’s apartments, so like I think their friendship is way stronger than Lili and Cole’s. Also the comments she made about beronica just being friends was like way before the show started, and they were taken way out of context, and she apologized and said she really didn’t mean it to be offensive. Since then she has been a big beronica fan, she literally has been talking about and liking beronica stuff since the show has started, and like she doesn’t write the show, so people can’t get mad at her for saying that beronica doesn’t happen in season one. As for her memes, they’re stupid and hilarious, and it’s one of the reasons I love her. In conclusion, Lili Reinhart is a precious cinnamon bun and deserves all the love and fruity pebbles in the world.

In regards to the "done everything" bit, I can't speak for the medical side of things, but on the tech side, it is almost always a lie even when considerable knowledge is demonstrated. It's a safe presumption that medical folks assume similar. Maybe not justified, and I'm sure it feels like a targeted insult, but it's probably just procedure to avoid seeking out super specific or unlikely fixes when easier ones might not have been tried.

When the comment is quite literally “have you done this basic blood test” yes, it is insulting, you don’t live five years attempting to manage certain conditions without a gods damned standard procedure blood test. Which are the comments I find really…*deep breath* vexing. They are also the ones I get the most.

As for what tech can do, I am invariably the one doing the most research on my own illness and different methods of diagnoses, as is common for people with chronic illness whom most doctors wish would just go away and stop presenting them with issues they don’t know how to manage. It makes us sound like lunatics and a lot of the time people confuse it for hypochondria because well, surely no one can actually be sick for five years and not have a single doctor manage to diagnose it, right? Right? I get why people think that way cause it’s terrifying to think that there are certain illnesses that do not follow standard protocol for diagnoses and treatment, but oh boy does it sure make those of us living outside that happy bubble feel isolated when others just dismiss it.

So yes, I will allow myself to be annoyed over such comments. It’s healthy to be annoyed sometimes.

Batman Beyond was my first DC show, and when I see all your fanart of Terr-bear I can't stop grinning! (Also an addition to your comment on Bruce and Terry's relationship, I really like it too, they understand each other better then anyone and there is so much banter/sass :D)

It was one of my firsts too! :D I’m so glad you like it <333

UGH I love it
They’re so opposite but so similar, even their sass is affectionate. When Bruce is short with Terry or has to tell him to tough things out, there’s always an unsaid apology or supporting words soon after. He’s a steady guide for Terry, and in return Terry is Bruce’s hope. It’s sweet and one of my all time fav mentor/protege relationships.

yo anon i was thinking something similar. i think that mikael made the comment without meaning harm because, let’s not forget, he’s a dumb high school boy (sorry hon) and it definitely points towards one reason why maybe he and even stopped talking??
