i do these a lot more than i should

every day im so glad i got out of food service like at the time i left they started giving people shit for drinking water more than once every TWO (2) HOURS and using the restroom more than once PER SHIFT and my brother works at my old job and they sent him home w a newsletter that said employees should be grateful because not a lot of places treat them as good as they do like......yikes.....

there is defo more nuance to caste discourse than brahmins=evil and all blame is shifted on them (Which isn’t true) but I feel like casteist Brahmins aren’t ready for that discourse without going, “sEE SEE! I TOLD yoU wE’RE OPPRESSED!!!” 

Brahmins laid the seeds for a lot of the B.S. in India rn, such as Hindutva governance, which they no longer control or particularly benefit economically from (Tamil Brahmins esp, since the Hindutva movement alienates any display of non-Northern culture or identity), but they still do actively uphold Victorio-Brahministic mindsets that support and still give power to these toxic movements that oppress others more than it affects them (i.e. the disbelief in caste mobility, the idea that there should be no mixing between castes in terms of marriage, that non-Brahmins are not allowed to be in control of worship in temples). There are also places where privilege and power shifts (because South Asia isn’t like the West), where Brahmins can be attacked for displaying pagan traits i.e. in Bangladesh, Pakistan, and in the infamous Kashmir exodus, but this is not exclusively because they’re Brahmin–it’s because of British plays of power that implemented the idea that Hindus and Muslims should hate each other and drive one another out when there’s a perceivable imbalance. Brahmins are poor, but most people are poor in India, and those who are non-Brahmin and poor struggle far more than those who are Brahmin and equally poor. Also, in certain cases, non-Brahmin communities can sometimes overshadow Brahmin communities in terms of control over certain aspects of Tamil culture and society (i.e. Devar, Gounder, and Chettiar subcastes), but these are mere exceptions that don’t invalidate the idea of Brahmins being privileged over most other non-Brahmin castes. (Plus, a lot of Devar, Gounder, and Chettiar people still believe in “Brahmin curses” where hurting a Brahmin could get them cursed so…at least in a religious sense Brahmins still hold imaginary power over them.) This is also why the quota system is flawed, since it doesn’t account for o t h e r higher castes (since Brahmins aren’t the oNLY privileged community) and gives them often the same compensation it gives to people lower on the caste hierarchy, which furthers the imbalance. The quota system is not flawed for believing that Brahmins don’t deserve the amount of compensation that lower castes do; it’s flawed in the way it’s carried out and is binaristic with a Lower Caste vs. All Brahmins approach and has no way of accounting for economic vs. caste privilege and how sometimes it doesn’t always go hand-in-hand.

I have a story on the back burner right now and id like to work on it more, but I also have another story that I've been working on for months and probably won't finish for a few years. Should I stop working on one and finish the other or juggle them both till I finish? Do you have a better idea?

I’ll let you know that from experience? Both kind of suck.

If you only work on one story from start to finish: You’ll get a lot done, and you’ll learn to dedicate yourself to one work. The downside is, if you hit a wall, you feel like there’s nothing you can do because you only have that one. Another upside is that you can become very attached to and cherish your story! Also, the sense of accomplishment is sweeter when complete because you can finally work on something else.

If you work on multiple stories concurrently: The process tends to slow down for both, and more than likely, you’ll be far more dedicated to one over the other. You may even start to think it’s a good idea to add in more works. You also feel like you have more freedom! If you get stuck on one, you can move onto the other!

You’ll have to choose what’s right for you. I personally tend to dedicate myself to one large project (such as a novel) and work on short stories, fanfics, and works of lesser importance to work on when I need a change of pace or I become stuck in my main work. (The downside to this is that I can have long streaks of other works that distract me and keep me from working on my main work)

nothing to see here, folks, just need a quick outlet for some ??? what is my life, why are there feelings all of a sudden i am not equipped for this

My parents told me that it's a waste of time to go to college and if I do then I have to move out. They told me that I should just go to school to learn how to do hair and makeup like my two sisters. They said since a lot of people are doing that lately then i'll find a job easily. But I don't like makeup or doing hair,eaves etc. I believe there's more to life than all that. I really want to receive a PhD one day. I feel so lost and very confused.

I’m really sorry that your parents aren’t giving you the individual focus and encouragement. I would say that if you want to go to college, someone has to pay for t. If not your parents then I’d say think about looking for scholarships or saving money and then going to college. Make a plan hun. Think it through.

I had promised a KiriBaku kid something like months ago, and tbh most of the reason why it took me this long is because I couldn’t pick between these two so?? In the end just have them both I guess - some info about them under cut, in case you wanna know more!!

Partner and I have been rewatching The Two Towers for the first time in a long time.

anyway, one thing that has always been weird for me is Eomer giving Hasufel and Arod to random strangers, just like that.  Just giving them away, two horses, to a trio of foreign travelers he just met and had suspected of being spies.

like.  what?  This is Rohan.  Horses are the thing you value above all else, I don’t care if their riders are dead, even if their riders don’t have actual heirs somewhere to whom ownership would pass (or Rohirric inheritance law works differently and ownership has somehow defaulted to their éored’s commander, IDK), you’re still a calvary force planning to see a lot more battle in the near future, chances are high you’re going to end up with horseless riders who’ll need them.

this time I actually processed the fact, though, that Eomer believes they’ve inadvertantly killed two innocents, prisoners of the orcs, the beloved companions of these travelers.

The horses aren’t a gift.  They’re weregild.

A little bit of Prey fanart, because that game has swallowed me whole. Morgan Yu (of course I picked the lady version, who do you think I AM) and a particular Operator I won’t name just because minor spoilers

Thank you Arkane, for all these good games with queer female leads. I feel blessed

Anyway Prey is really good and you should play it

When adults who care for children make the choice to dismantle gender and sex normativity in their own lives, they make room for children to embody gender, race and sex on their own terms. They empower children to see people as people.

Queer parenting is not a fad. It isn’t something people do for a pat on the back. There are a lot of us non-heterosexual or gender-nonconforming parents who engage differently with gender.


The fact is: Queer parenting is a deliberate choice to raise children as free as possible from the limitations that labels, stereotypes and gendered norms place on marginalized people in the United States.


While these decisions have garnered sneered noses and scowls from more traditional parents, those people who believe “children should be children” rather than politicized actors, I am keenly aware that my black children will be politicized whether I like it or not.

I don't know if this is something i should ask on this blog (feel free to delete if its not) but i heard the chainsmokers said something racist, do you know what it was?

This is definitely something I am willing to answer. The video has been taken down. But yesterday at about 10AM KST, the Clamslappers posted a video of an interview in China for Ultra Festival on Twitter. And the host asked whether or not one of the guys (idk their names and I don’t want to know their names) whether he brought his dog. And he made a “joke” implying that dogs aren’t safe in China because of the typical Asian stereotype that all Asians eat/slaughter dogs. The guy didn’t say this specifically, but it was implied through his silence when asked why he didn’t bring his dog and after the host realized what he was implying the Clamslappers and the host laughed together. The caption was also the laughing (with tears) emoji. Later, (I just checked now because I have them blocked), the member (again idk their names) posted an apology saying that it was because he heard dogs get slaughtered in China (you can find it here: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DJdyhAcUMAAr8Fk.jpg:orig), but it was still a racist comment based off of old stereotypes and it frustrates me to an incredible extent. The fact that they make these remarks and laugh about it makes me mad. While he said this is why he didn’t bring his dog, I’m sure he was making a joke about Chinese and Asians in general. If he was truly worried about his dog, he would have looked concerned or sad or made a comment about saving dogs in the interview. Instead he made a cheap “joke” and attempted to cover it up with a campaign to fight against dog slaughter. What makes it even more upsetting is that they are collaborating with BTS, a South Korean boy group. I know a lot of you guys won’t agree with me, but yeah. Also for those fans that are worried about whether or not dislking or not supporting the Clamslappers makes you a bad ARMY, it really doesn’t. Fact of the matter is we love BTS not them. Just because we love BTS doesn’t mean that we have to be fans of those people. I’m going to add this because I don’t think some of you get it. I am Asian, I have lived through ugly Asian stereotypes, remarks, “jokes.” Don’t make comments about the Asian experience and say “well this sterotype applies sometimes.” It doesn’t matter. It was a cheap ugly “joke” and should not be tolerated.

They take a shortcut through a kind of run down neighborhood, meaning that the streets are narrow and the roads are all bumpy. It’s one broken segment of pavement after another. The driver apologizes but says the route is ten minutes shorter and traffic-free, despite the conditions. Harry tells him not to worry about it.

“S’alright, mate.”

Y/N first worries briefly, if it is alright because from where Fionn’s got his arm around Y/N’s waist he digs his fingers into her skin through her clothing and it triggers something carnal inside of her. Her thoughts drift to ones that verge inappropriate, nearly have her cheeks heating. It would all be fine if she wasn’t intimately in Fionn’s lap and his grip wasn’t verging possessive.

And then YN worries, again, because she realizes these thoughts triggered by Fionn’s tight grip are mutual. There is an undoubtedly existent bulge budging against Y/N’s bum from Fionn pants.

She swallows and looks at Harry, instinctively, almost, and because she’s a bit overwhelmed, frozen because she doesn’t know how to proceed with this information.

or, Y/N’s a film student working on the set of Dunkirk and Harry’s her sugar daddy who likes to watch her have sex with Fionn.

I imagine that Harry and Draco’s first time together would be intense. It would be rough and needy and desperate, developing out of sexual tension built up over seven years of anger and frustration. It would peak and then slow to a quiet calm in just under ten minutes of absolute insanity.

And then, complete awkwardness. Like what the hell did we just do???? awkwardness.

They could both admit they enjoyed it. That was a bit obvious given the sounds they both had made. But wow this is super weird.

They try going back to normal–ignoring each other apart from polite nods from across the great hall. But when Harry catches Draco staring at him during class or in the eighth year common room he sees something he’s never seen before in those cool, grey eyes. Want.

Not just an “I want you right here and right now on this desk in this classroom” kind of way. It’s hesitant and curious. A clear desire to understand his own feelings towards his supposed rival. And every day Harry sees the want in those eyes become more determined. More fixed. More focused. Until finally, it seems he’s decided. And Harry has too.


I imagine their second time is more uncertain. They’re shy and uncomfortable and saying are we really doing this?? yeah I guess we’re doing this. There’s shaky laughs and blushing and nose bumping and Harry’s glasses dig into Draco’s cheek until one of them comes to their senses and is like yeah.. right.. I should probably take these off. And you should take those off too.. and yeah alright I guess everything’s coming off. And Draco kisses Harry and says “Potter, if you don’t stop narrating this I swear I’ll walk out that door.”

It’s messy and soft. And somehow even more exciting than the first time because they’ve had time to think about it. A lot of time. And amazingly, despite everything, both have come to the conclusion that this is worth it. This is right. And it was right all along.

Victor & Victor - Museum Guide

The secret guide is lead by Victor and…. Victor! (Young Victor)

The guide starts off with both Victors greeting the listener, and Young Victor inviting the listener to come and play with them in the museum. He asks how many times the listener has come to the museum (-ahem- six times) and wonders if it was done especially just to meet him.

Victor thanks the listener and they both say “spasibo!”

Victor asks what brought the listener to the museum so many times and then asserts that “it must be love.”

In the costume area, they compliment everything on display and talk about the costumes of each skater.
Young Victor asks which of the GPF costumes would look best on him, and Victor answers that Chris’s short program outfit would suit him well.

Young Victor remarks that Yurio’s Agape outfit used to be his, even if now it belongs to Yurio.

Victor says that he really likes Yuuri’s FS costume, then adds that he thinks that the outfit looks best on Yuuri (implying that no one else would look as good in it).

Young Victor comments that Phichit’s SP Thai-style one looks really fun, and then Victor says that Otabek’s FS costume is cool.

Young Victor: And JJ’s is… eh, okay? Kinda annoying looking.
Victor: If you wear that one, you have to do the JJ Style pose.

Young Victor then asks which of all the season’s costumes Victor would most like to wear. Victor says that Young Victor’s choice is probably the same as his…

Both Victors: 3… 2… 1… Seung-gil’s short program costume! Seung-sational!
(The rainbow parrot looking one, ahahahahha)

As they move into the Victor area of the museum, Victor asks the listener again how many times they’ve visited and says that they’re probably bored of seeing it all by now.

Young Victor offers up a game of impersonations, imitating different characters and asking the listener to guess who each are. Together the two Victors impersonate Yakov, Lilia, Yurio, and Yuuri.

YV as Yakov: *grumbling* How many times do I have to tell you doing quad flips is not good for your growing body? If you can’t follow instruction, you should quit!

V as Lilia: Strength is nothing without beauty

YV as Yurio: I’ll turn you into borscht, piggy! I’m the Russian Ice Tiger!

V as Yuuri: Have more faith in me than I have in myself! Stay by my side and never leave.

After they’re done with the impersonations, the Victors begin to say lots of romantic lines and confessions, one after the one.
“I love you.”
“I want to embrace you.”
“I want to be with you forever.”
“I want to kiss you.”
“I can’t imagine ever being without you.”
“I will never be able to forget you.”
“Please stay by my side.”
“I love you so much.”

And it turns out they are talking about… Makkachin! The Victors then start barking. Starting off cute and descending into louder and louder barks, with some howls.
“Wan wan wan wan wan wan WAN!”

Victor asks if the listener knows everything about the museum, as they’ve visited so many times. He asks what they’re thinking about and says he bets that it’s him. Then says that Yuuri is also probably on their mind, that their mind has been “yurified”. Young Victor mentions Yurio, but follows it up with mentioning that Yurio would probably mad and that “his middle finger would go up.”

Victor goes on to say that Georgi also probably pops up in their thoughts, and that it isn’t something to be ashamed of because everyone has a Georgi in their mind. He says that if the Georgi gets out of control, to imagine a Yakov to help guide them through. If that doesn’t help, he advises the listener to think only of him, because Victor can make you forget about everything other than himself.

(This section was rather weird, I feel like I was missing something)

The Victors finish off the guide with general thanks, and say that the two of them had a lot of fun with the listener.

Victor then says he has one final request and asks, “Why don’t we make history together?”

History Maker starts to play in the background as both Victor state, “We were born to make history!” together in Japanese and close off the guide with a “See you next level!”

But for sure your favorite part is watching him train, seeing his muscles move and how much he gets into what he is doing makes you feel things that you shouldn’t feel at your work place “Come on, babe kick his ass. Finish him and I will kiss you all over that beautiful face.” You said cheerfully, making him pin Steve down in seconds on the floor.

I think what I like best about Lotor and his generals relationship is the respect and trust between them.

Lotor never disrespects his generals and they never disrespect him in return.

His generals are allowed to do something that most subordinates of the main antagonist aren’t allowed to do. Question him. 

When Lotor’s Generals have issues or confusion about his plans, he doesn’t get mad. He doesn’t make them feel inferior, raise his voice or put them in their place. He explains his intentions clearly. 

You don’t see that a lot with villains and their subordinates. Zarkon is a prime example.

Even if Lotor’s generals do not agree with his ideas, they listen to him. But honestly, I think that’s more akin to their history than anything else. 

I know there was that one episode where Lotor did scold Axca for failing but you have to remember that he is the boss now. Failure should not be an option.
His scolding was more like how a parent scolds their child. You know the line “I’m not mad. I’m just disappointed” That’s how Lotor acted with Axca. Same way

I can see why the voltron crew is saying that Lotor is different from stereotypical villains. Yes, he may be the bad guy but that doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy

some stuff that I love/think is neat in The Wizard of Oz book, that was left out of the movie/almost every re-make

Don’t get me wrong, I really like the 1939 movie cause it’s colorful and pretty, the songs are awesome, and it’s a hollywood classic. However, these are just some things that I loved in the book, but everyone ignores since they weren’t in the 1939 version. 

Dorothy:

In the book she’s a very little girl, around 8-10, and I always liked that, and I’ll always see her as a little girl. Judy Garland was a really good Dorothy, but she was still a teenager. I know it was made over 70 years ago but I still think they should have cast Shirley Temple like they were planning. 

The witches:

In the original book, The good witch of the north, and Glinda the good with of the south, are two different characters. The witch of the north is the one who gives Dorothy the silver slippers, and all she knows is that they’re magic. It’s Glinda who comes in at the end and tells Dorothy she can use them to get home. It makes a whole lot more sense than Glinda knowing what they can do the whole time.(Also I really like Wicked and want to see it live eventually, but in my mind it’s basically it’s own thing)

Nick Chopper: 

The tin woodsman has a backstory! A really good one that ties in with the rest of the story. He used to be a regular man named Nick Chopper and he was engaged to a munchkin girl, but the lady who the girl worked for didn’t want her to get married. So she made a deal with the witch of the east and she enchanted his axe. His axe ended up cutting off each of his limbs but he was helped out by Ku-Klip the tinsmith and he kept replacing his limbs. Eventually the axe cut off everything and he became the tin woodsman. He was so upset that he didn’t have a heart anymore that he felt like he couldn’t love his fiancee without one. 

His backstory is really cool and (won’t apologize for the pun) heartbreaking. It’s lame to me that it’s never really used, and it’s a shame because it gives him motivation to want a heart again. 

The Kalidahs:

These are super horrifying beasts that live in the Kalidah forest, and they litteraly kill and eat anything they can. I see people adding in a lot of beasts and characters into Oz to make it more scary and grown up, and I don’t see why you’d do that but leave these guys out. The run in with them is how we learn that The Cowardly Lion has courage, because he crosses a log bridge to get away from them even though he’s scared. 

The Emerald City isn’t made of Emerald:

Okay so this is way easier to do in a book or black and white comic than it is to do in a movie or tv show. But, in the book before anyone can see inside the city, they need to put on green glasses so the brightness of the emeralds won’t “hurt their eyes”. Then at the end when we find out about the Wizard, they take the glasses off and they(and the audience) learns that like the Wizard, the whole city is a sham. It’s not made of emerald, it’s all just white and plain. That part of the book had a really great lesson to /litteraly/ not look at the world through rose colored glasses. It’s probably one of my favorite things that get left out. 

Ozma and Dorothy are gay as hell:

Lookit these lesbians. Bein lesbian… Ozma(a cannon trans girl btw) doesn’t come into the picture until later books, and it takes a few years for Dorothy to come back to Oz but lookit these 1900s gays in these official illustrations. 

Oh, and Dorothy and the gang get rescued from the poppy field by a gang of field mice this is their queen:

Anyway, I do like the movie, and I love the Muppets version since they got a lot from the books. I just wish there was an adaptation that used the cannon stuff that’s neat instead of trying waaaayyyy hard to not be the 1939 movie. But it seems like the adaptations are just adaptations of the movie and don’t take anything from the books. Cause L Frank Baum wrote 14 of them with trolls, wheelers, frankenstein monsters, princesses, endless deserts where if any part of you touches it you turn to sand, more witches, sky fairies, and most importantly lesbian princess girlfriends!
