i can't wait for the other two to come in

Realistically, Danielle was never going to win this season but I’m incredibly proud of her for making it this far. Every week she could’ve been nominated, she was, except for the one week Kryssie won HoH. Week one, two, and three by America. Kryssie won HoH and didn’t nominate her plus she was just America’s nominee so Reddit couldn’t either(they nominated the only other black girl instead). She won HoH the following week so she was safe from eviction, was nominated by Jason the week after, won DE HoH and was safe from eviction again, and has been nominated again this week thanks to BB rigging the HoH comp. No one had to fight for their BB life as much as Dani has and so even though she isn’t winning this season, she played the best game and deserved the win.

The Sims 4 is finally complete

and it is reigning supreme over all other simulation games.

First EA hits me with vampires…and now toddlers…like? Those were my top two. I feel so fulfilled. So complete. My dreams are coming true, right before my very eyes. This is everything I’ve ever wanted. 😭😭😭 Now I’m counting the minutes until my next opportunity for a gaming binge.

This Thursday (31st March) is Trans Day of Visibility

It’s that time of year again! That awesome day where trans people share their selfies and stories. It’s one of the two largest trans advocacy days, the other being Trans Day of Remembrance (20th November). That day is dedicated to mourning and solemnity, while this day is a day to celebrate being alive! Like last year, I’m not sure of the absolute official hashtag, so I’m guessing there’ll be a variety in use, such as: #tdov #transdayofvisibility #trans day of visibility #trans visibility #trans pride

This day has been recognised since 2009 and is increasing in popularity and support each year, but there’s still a long way to go in spreading the word. Visibility is something that the trans community often has to struggle for, so this is our time to step out of the shadows, take pride in who we are, and show the world that we exist and we’re here to stay.

If you are trans

This is your day. No matter your gender - whether you’re male, female, or any nonbinary gender - anyone who isn’t cis (ie. whose gender is different from the gender they were assigned at birth) can participate. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the community and be visible. If you’re comfortable, post a selfie. Share your story. This is your time to be proud of who you are! It can get hard and lonely sometimes, but there’s a whole community here who have your back.

If you are not trans

Please also get involved - don’t leave this day just up to us. Today is a day for you to support and listen to the trans community. Show us some love by reblogging some selfies and reading some stories, whether you browse through the tags listed above or stick to your mutuals. Now is a perfect opportunity to learn about our wonderful community and to look at some beautiful people. It’s a win-win, really.

Above all, I hope everyone has a fantastic TDoV! Have fun and keep it positive.

  • shadowhunters: most of the cast is poc, two of it's main characters are a non-traditional gay man and a bisexual moc who actually communicate and discuss their issues in a mature way. The characters look their age and the way you pictured them in the books, including Magnum' cat eyes and fashion style, Isabelle's outfits and Jace's hair. Woman in the show are actually friends who support and compliment each other. Hodge is the appropriate age, and the flashbacks have younger actors/actresses who portray the characters. It has a plot that calls out on racism, homopbia and corrupted justice system. And on top of that, the show makes Jocelyn likeable.
  • people: why is Clary's hair so orange and bright? and why does she wear makeup?
  • people: why are they all older than they were in the books?
  • people: why are they all talking about their feelings instead of giving us unnecessary drama?
  • people: why is Luke black?
  • people: why is everyone so gay for each other?
  • me:
  • me: because it's the fucking 21 century!
Downton Canon prompt challenge

Hello everyone! As most of you know, I’m on writing hiatus, but that doesn’t stop quotes jumping out at me, and suggesting beautiful ideas for stories.

So, I thought I’d share them all with you, and challenge you all to create some wonderful Downton things.

This is open to stories, videos, manips and art work (I’m not sure how other mediums would work, although I would love to see what people could come up with!).

There are just two rules for this prompt.

1). Any pairing, and any form of relationship applies, so long as they are canon, or inspired by canon (i.e. Baxley or Patmore and Mason, who aren’t couples when the series ended, but heavily implied that they would be). The reasoning behind this is down to the second stipulation ….

2). Anything written must be canon, or a continuation of canon. No modern AUs for this one. BUT, to ensure those who still love ships which have sunk (and I do like a well written Richobel), sunk ships can be used so long as they don’t overtake canon (again to use the Richobel example, romantic fics are fine as long as they don’t surplant the eventual outcome for Isobel).

I hope that’s not too draconian ….. I’ve been feeling the lack of pure canon stories in recent months, and others I’ve chatted to have felt the same. I love all the modern takes, but my poor heart yearns for some pure canon!

Now, without further ado, here are the quotes (most are under the cut, for length reasons – there are A LOT, because I’ve been gathering material for a bit. Make sure to read to the end!). Some, you will notice, are from works of literature, some are from post 1920s works/people. It’s up to you how you incorporate them, although if anyone wants to know what my first thought was for one of them, send me a message!

Above all, have fun!!!!

‘There’s a light in a woman’s eyes that speaks louder than words.’ – Arthur Conan Doyle

‘That’s why I like you so much. Your heart isn’t dead.’ – Albert Camus

‘She loved him because he had brought her back to life. She had been like a caterpillar in a cocoon, and he had drawn her out and shown her that she was a butterfly.’ – Ken Follett

‘If you expect nothing from anybody, you’re never disappointed.’ – Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

‘There is a painful difference between the expectation of an unpleasant event and its final certainty.’ - Elinor Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility (1995)

‘A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.’ – Ingrid Bergman

'Will you marry this foolish, frightened old man … who needs you more than he can bear to say … who loves you, even though he hardly knows how?’ – Shadowlands

I would be absolutely thrilled to get the scene where Finn excitedly introduces Rey and Poe, but also consider this: the two of them bumping into each other on their own. BB8 goes rolling up to Rey all excited to see her, and Poe comes running up like “Huh, they really like you. Have we met?” And at first Rey is confused because she still thinks Poe is dead. But a moment later realization dawns and they both go, “You must be Rey/Poe! Finn’s told me so much about you, I’m so excited to meet you!”
