I just watched a french fry challenge on YouTube where you are blind folded and have to guess where different fries come from, and now I want an AU where Stiles is a vlogger who challenges Derek to the french fry challenge and if Derek loses, he has to go on a date with him.
Despite being a french fry connoisseur, Stiles loses the game. He tries to play it casual, tries to be a good sport about it, but he’s actually just plain miserable that he won’t get the chance to take Derek out on that date and woo him. He knows it’s stupid but he just….really wanted the chance to prove to Derek he can be romantic and deserving of him and all that couply jazz. He wanted one setting where he didn’t have to be careful about flirting with Derek too obviously. One night where he could just look a him without feeling self conscious when Derek caught him and chalk it up to the “Stilinski date experience” or something equally as pathetic.
Basically, he just wanted one night to know what it felt like to hold Derek Hale’s hand (if Derek would have even let him).
Derek leaves and Stiles mopes for the rest of the day, trying not to feel sorry for himself and utterly, utterly heart broken. Again, stupid, but he’s been pining after Derek for years. He’s considering going to bed early when his door bell rings and standing there, dressed in a fancy cardigan with a bottle of wine and - several bags of….chicken based snacks? - is Derek, asking if he’s up for “another challenge”.
Stiles loses again but it’s okay because the moment Derek wins, he turns to him and with a grin that can only be described as the love child of ‘shy’ and ‘shit eating’ (if that is even possible), he cups Stiles’ cheek and says, “I’m going to claim my prize now.”
The kiss tastes like chicken and too much salt but Stiles doesn’t care because it’s the best kiss of his entire life and his stomach won’t quit doing somersaults.
I am so tired of the meme that “what aces complain about only highlights their privilege.” because every single time, it’s something that we also fight for and complain about.
This time, someone at a UK college that asks if you’re “straight, gay, other, or decline to state” on their campus job apps complained about not being able to indicate they were ace.
And of course some exclusionists were like “meanwhile, LGBT people are scared to answer that in case it’s used against them! Why do you need to tell people about your relationship to sex in random situations! The things you people complain about just highlight your privilege!”
(Yes, they really said “you people,” like some kind of cartoon stereotype of a bigot)
I suppose that if I were in that same situation and I complained about not being able to say I was bi or trans, that would also be an example of my amazing bi/trans double privilege?
I have fought so fucking hard to be able to tell people I’m bi or trans in random situations!
When I told my dentist she needed something besides “male” and “female” on her intake forms, was I just highlighting my privilege as a visibly nonbinary person?
When I make a point of bringing up my partner, in job interviews, in a way that makes it clear I’m “LGBT”, so that I can't chicken out of being out at work, and can test them ahead of time to see if they’re cool about it, am I just highlighting my privilege there too?
(This is a good example of where “LGBT” fails as an inclusive term. I can’t say that mentioning my partner makes it clear I’m gay, because we’re both bi. It might make them THINK I’m gay, but it would sound even more ridiculous to say “mentioning my partner in a way that makes them think I’m gay.” And I can’t say “in a way that makes it clear I’m bi,” because I don’t think it does, and I’m not sure what that would even be. But using “LGBT” as an adjective for a single person doesn’t actually make any sense, since I’m not lesbian, gay, bi, AND transgender.)
Anyway you could argue that it’s some kind of privilege of living in a big city or a liberal state, if you wanted, I guess. But that isn’t actually the same kind of thing as having privilege given to you by society because of what/who you are. And it’s not really accurate.
What’s more accurate is that some of us can use areas where we do have privilege, like class privilege, to balance out some of the areas where we lack privilege. Like around gender or sexual orientation or being intersex.
Like, someone applying for an on-campus job, at a university that asks you about sexual orientation in the job app… They’re probably in the same position I am. They are in a SOMEWHAT accepting environmental, and have enough economic security to risk some of those jobs rejecting them for their orientation.
And that means they have enough safety - even if it’s just BARELY enough - to trade a little of that class privilege in to make their group more visible and better supported. But they can’t, because it’s invisible.
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been faced with forms where I had to write in that I was bi or trans or nonbinary, because the situation was a safe space for “LGBT people” but only really knew to ask about some of the more visible things… which then affects their data about what communities they serve, and who needs to be served… by making it so that the people they’re not thinking of don’t show up in those numbers at all.
Complaining about that is not a sign of my magical bi nonbinary trans privilege. And it’s not a sign of someone else’s imaginary “cishet” privilege as an ace person.
I can legit imagine Draco going to The Burrow and critiquing the chickens and the cockerel on their plumage saying how they’re not anything against the Malfoy’s peacocks
Mrs Weasley asking Harry where Draco has gone and Harry is like uhhhh hang on and he goes and finds Draco out in the yard bent over double with his fingers wiggling behind his back as he struts up and down cawing. The chickens and cockerel are in a line watching him and their little heads follow him left to right and back again. Draco is adamant and saying ‘THIS is how you do it!!! not any of that pansy cawing! Or strutting!’
Harry awkwardly trying to get Draco’s attention but Draco is now showing the chickens how to properly push their chests out and strut around to attract a mate. Harry is silently in tears for trying not to laugh at how mortified the chickens are
Draco suddenly realising he’s not alone and freezing where he’s bent over fanning a pretend tail. His face colouring up bright red and immediately spluttering. Harry knowing he’s never gonna let Draco forget this and shrugging, gesturing to the chickens and back. 'Well…it worked. I’m here’
'What?’ Draco snaps, his face maroon now and his voice high pitched
'You attracted a mate. It worked’ Harry grins, waiting for his humour to sink in
Draco looking absolutely mortified but the chickens begin cawing happily and he glares at them as Harry begins to laugh manically.
'Traitors’ Draco hisses venomously as Harry, so fucking in love with this pompous arrogant blonde, tugs Draco into a kiss right there in the Weasleys back yard, not even caring when their embrace is joined by a chorus of cawing birds
Umm hey do you know who the original artist of this work is? I’m pretty sure the person who uploaded isn’t them and they didn’t credit the artist and right now I’m pretty sure they didn’t get permission to repost this.
Thank you very much for askin’ meh !
No need to search very far, it’s the adorabble and extremely talented @konoira
And yea’ ,they do not appreciate to see their art reposted. ヘ（。□°）ヘ
You should ask them to take it down !
i need to repeat it but :
DON T REBLOG OR LIKE REPOSTED ARTWORKS.
THOSE REPOSTERS KEEP DOING THIS BC U ARE GIVING THEM THE ATTENTION THEY R BEGGIN’ FOR. ლ(⁰A⁰ლ)
How many times they told meh “but, my followers are askin’ for this !!!”
No they don’t. they’re askin’ for fresh new “pictures’’ , you re the one who disrespect the artists while reuploading without their consent.
They have to ask for the permission and if not, AT LEAAAST credit properly the artist . And “credit to the owner /google/tumblr/my ass is made of chicken” is not a freakin’ dingly dongly credit. If they don’t understand this. As simple as it is. Don’t reupload stuff.
Anyway. me me very salty but if i need to, i’ll repeat it over and over again.it’s too important. ヾ(ﾟΘﾟ )ヾ
TN: Here’s Kubo’s response to a question about his creative process and mentions of his health, taken from two pages of JUMP GIGA 2017 vol. 2
Kubo Tite X Matsui Yūsei
Creative process secrets
Two mangaka are gathered here, they have created works that are great hits shining brightly through the history of JUMP. A passionate talk unfolds, extending over two hours!
—- “There is a difference between the things you want to draw and the things you can draw. The creator should draw the things they can draw. That’s what I’ve heard, but what do the two senseis think about that statement?” That is the question from pen name - “Red Pencil san”.
Matsui: First of all, I think Kubo sensei is probably the opposite. You draw the things you want to draw right?
Kubo: That’s right. Because, I think that the things I want to draw, is something I can draw…
Anymore?? Omg, I can't even imagine what Victor thought when he saw Yuuri first eat in front of him first hand haha! Oh gosh but I imagine it would be the same as seeing Victor and his crew eating chicken or other birds?
VICTOR WAS CERTAINLY SURPRISED THE FIRST TIME HE SAW YURI EAT A PERSON ANd, it was quickly settled that he didn’t mind that Yuri ate people, BUT, he would prefer not to see it XD
and it’s not too much the same, since Yuri doesn’t consider himself a chicken or anything, though, he def gives Victor a stare when it happens XP
Man, the new fnaf is lid. Tbh I really like Funtime Chica? It's like the character I absolutly missed without even knowin how much I needed that Chicken back on the road :o also the rockstar animatronics? I wanna smooch them all. They're perf. I can't wait to find the time to draw them all x3
I know exactly how you feel! I love Funtime china (can’t believe that she’s actually confirmed!) and the rockstar animatronics! I also wanna find time to draw them all but I’ve started other drawings a while ago that I wanna finish first soooo….. (love your art btw)
