hello daily reminder not to ignore female muses and disregard all the hard work put into them bc chances are they had to put in 5 times the effort a male muse has to put in for a sliver of the attention. also? don’t Assume they ONLY exist to jump dick. thanks.
uhhhhhhhhhhhh this is going to sound like a faux post, as many do, but i went into work just straight up SOBBING… and i always go on and on abt work just being work and never mattering to anyone there (or like, at all, to anyone, ever, lmao) bc i genuinely.. worry abt that and feel like that, but… like.. everyone was concerned? multiple ppl told me that if i needed to talk to any of them, they’d be more than happy to listen? @ one point i even had to leave the counter bc like.. i started bawling yet again and i didn’t want to be there all snotty and watery whilst trying to sell candy to ppl (bc like.. whom wants to see that also whom could even understand me when i’m like that) and when i came back this one sweet chick who i talk to semi-frequently was like “oh btw i left you a note” and just..
idek how to process any of that lmao? i almost started crying AGAIN bc it’s so overwhelming to even think abt the possibility of ppl GIVING a shit and not thinking i’m a complete waste of space and even after i’d calmed down no one treated the situation as weird or treated me any differently/avoided me like……… idk it’s so wild to think abt…….. being wanted/cared for. lol, as they say
Everyone says that Adam and no one under the spell ages, so what if the spell went on for 300+ years or whatever, and a woman hiking through the woods kind of went through what Maurice with the tree being knocked over. Beast and the girl (modern Belle maybe) fall in love and break the spell then Adam has to be introduced and become a part of today’s world. Like imagine Belle getting him a pair of jeans and taking him to Paris and his reaction of being in a car. ADAM LEARNING TO DRIVE A CAR EVEN!
YESS oh man i love this idea
like, him not only learning to be human again but to adapt to the world’s changes?? i would love to see that
he would totally freak at cars. and being inside one for the first time??? not. fun. after a while though, i can see him getting used to them and wanting to drive Too Fast and belle is like What Have I Done
oh my gosh i’m thinking of how the storyline would transfer to modern times and my brain just whispered to me “what if all the villagers marching on the beast’s castle are ppl who heard about this extrordinary beast and want to capture and experiment on him”. soo yeah that doesnt hurt my heart at all
oH!!! maybe theyre all from the same lab/facility thing and belle and gaston work there and she’s like the only girl there so she has to deal w all that lovely modern-day sexism and has to work extra hard at her inventions to show that she belongs
woah im having a lot of ideas now but i gotta go to class soon so i’ll stop here. but @everyone who sees this, you should totally add your ideas for this AU in the reblogs or replies, bc anon’s idea is fantastic
thanks for this ask, anon!
I wanted to write this out for you all because I want the community back.
I don’t expect everyone to make up and be besties but at the very least be kind to those who have no ill intent.
Every now and then we have a member within our community that sets fires and leaves the rest of us to deal with it.
Last time it was gatorthepyrador, who set out to destroy reputations and telling people to end their lives. Gator did not stop until I had enough and messaged their entire family on Facebook, letting them know what was going on.
We lost a lot of good members during that time, for example Neo and his human.
We all know what the current situation is.
We are all pissed off, hurt and some more than others.
But we can not let this come between us and ruin the community.
Instead we should let it be a lesson, to always ask for proof during fundraisers, to keep our minds open but be on alert.
I have made so many friends from here and I know I’ll make more.
I want that to be an option for newer dogblrs too, to experience the community the way I did when I first started.
You guys are the most supportive, understanding and kind people I have ever met.
I know it’s hard sometimes and friendships split and people leave, but we can not let it break us. We can’t.
This is where I come when I’m happy, when I’m upset, when something happens, and you guys have never ever failed to be there for me.
I just wanted to tell all of you that I am thankful for all of you despite arguments and disagreements because I know that when it comes down to it, you guys will be there.
I appreciate you and I hope you guys know that.
This post is a mess and is all over the place but I’m an exhausted emotional mess that wants people to know I believe in them and I want this place to feel like home again.
tweek: He’s just staring at us! You don’t think he’s going to kill us, do you? Those shears could chop one of our heads off clean! I DON’T WANT MY HEAD TO GET CHOPPED OFF–
craig: Tweek, chill. Anyone can beat the shit out of Donald Trump. You, especially. You spar with Mike Tyson every Friday, for Christ’s sake. craig: No one’s gonna chop your head off. tweek: Nnrgh–you’re right…
clyde: Our beloved homosexuals, Craig and Tweek, obviously! jimmy: R-round of applause for the haa… jimmy: the huaahah… jimmy: …the happy couple, fellas!
tweek: Um. Thanks, Craig. craig: …yeah, yeah. clyde: I think I still have some yaoi fanart of you two at my house. jimmy: You th-think? I saw one in a little picture frame in your living room.
tweek: No–well–sort of? It’s been four years, nn, everyone that we hadn’t told eventually found out that we were acting… tweek: We still have to pretend, though. craig: Facebook official for the adults. Because they’re dumb enough to have another breakdown if they figure otherwise. craig: Some of them want us to be really facebook official.
tweek: You know what, I change my mind, fuck you. craig: What.
tweek: What the hell, man! Just, just press ignore already, no wonder dad keeps asking me about how much you use facebook! He won’t stop! craig: I don’t use it. Well, I look at it, but I can’t post or like anything… craig: Dude, I don’t want to make your dad cry again. It’s just sad.
how could ryuji be the best if hes constantly making lewd comments about women
*cracks knuckles* WE GON’ LEARN TODAY SON
To begin, I think there’s inherently a weird flaw in Ryuji’s writing (or perhaps a localization/translation issue) in that the very thing you mention doesn’t make sense for his personality. I’ll admit I love that boy more than anything so I’m a bit quick to defend him, but also if I take myself outside of that for a sec, it genuinely doesn’t line up. I don’t know if Ryuji started out as like, Pervy Bro and they were like “oh we can’t make him a straight up dick” or if he started off an empathetic, loyal character and they were like “oh but we need someone to be the horny teenage boy” (I’m inclined to think the latter). Either way, Ryuji is very protective and responsive to the girls on the team. Let’s take a look at what I think of as True Ryuji (tru-uji if you will hahahaha i hate myself too it’s ok), and just fyi SPOILERS. I haven’t finished the game yet so not full game spoilers but just-before-5th-palace-spoilers.
When Ann walks into the metaverse, his priority is her safety, not some dumb “oh this GIRL is gonna SLOW US DOWN” shit–which, if Ryuji is Typical Bro, would’ve been his reaction. He’s also extremely motivated by the mistreatment of girls, especially Ann, by Kamoshida. Also the physical abuse, of course, but his first insult tends to be calling Kamoshida a pervert and gross and whatnot which leads me to think he has a bigger problem with Kamoshida’s sexual abuse than his physical (WHICH IS SAYING SOMETHING seeing as how Ryuji was a victim of the physical abuse). Ryuji is beyond impressed with Makoto and her persona’s awakening, arguably the most out of the entire team, and in full, active, vocal support of it–not to mention he literally jumps into traffic to stop a car so we can hurry and save Makoto. He is the first to run to Futaba when she falls down AND when Ann is pushing Futaba’s boundaries during the closet scene, Ryuji is very insistent that Ann should not continue. In the end we get the info we’re looking for and Futaba comes out applause all around good job Ann etc etc etc but Ryuji’s sensitivity to Futaba and her feelings was like….so refreshing to me?? Esp as someone with anxiety?? That was so touching idc if i sound like a cheeseball I KNOW IT’S A VIDEO GAME but my boy was so pure. THENNN when Haru is getting harassed, Ryuji is first to arrive (shoutout to track team and long legs) and immediately takes up a defensive position. He demands that her fiance leave her alone because she’s our friend–which, at this point in time, is basically a lie. He also is first to run to her when she falls and immediately agrees to having her rest, offering our attic as the resting place without asking (knowing there’s no problem with it) and even tho he’s been beefin’ with Morgana he puts Haru before that and works with Morgana to get Haru to safety.
And that’s just the phantom thieves girls!!! There’s so many other instances where he’s A GOOD BOY (the old lady at the station *tear*, willingly provoking the Shadows so we can escape even tho it means certain death, unashamed to share vulnerable or traditionally-considered-”weak” emotions) that I could literally go on forever.
His obsession with girls and making comments about their bodies is like, def not ok, but in The Real World my guess is that it’s because the writers had trouble deciding what kind of person he was gonna be and tried to fit both in and tbh for me I just can’t buy it. I could buy some of it, like checking out Ann or something, but then in Hawaii when he’s talking about how the girls there are “massive” I was like ????? Ryuji would never go THAT far. In a headcanon-y space, I would say that Ryuji’s dad is obviously The Ultimate Piece of Shit and 1) didn’t give Ryuji a good idea of what a man is so 2) Ryuji no longer has a male presence in his life and thus nothing else to go off of, which means 3) in an effort to be Masculine and Become a Man during his coming-of-age age (lol), he’s just copying what he thinks is how he’s supposed to act. I also think that Ryuji’s mom is a sweet, kind lady who wouldn’t hesitate to bitch slap her son if she heard him talk about girls that way and she’s raised him to be respectful so that also contradicts his behavior. It’s not genuinely who he is–he’s so quick to tell guys to back off the girls at the beach even tho he literally just went to do the same thing–it’s just who he thinks he’s supposed to be. And we all know Ryuji struggles with self-esteem and not putting himself down, so like, he doesn’t have the ability to outright reject that notion (yet). He so often wants to be someone other than himself that he adopts this persona (haha didn’t mean to do that) thinking it’s just the way of the world.
None of the above makes his behavior excusable AT ALL, like more than once I literally said “dude chill out” to my screen ok, but I think in game-verse it can be explained and outside of the game it can also be explained. I contend that he is still pure and good and right and the goddamn sunshine incarnate, but dude’s got flaws and some things he has to work out (and I fully believe Ann threatens and then casually DOES call his mom to tell on him one day [much to his protests and FOR REALs and ARE YOU KIDDING MEs and ANN I’M SO SORRY I PROMISE I WON’T SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT AGAIN JUST DON’T TELL MY MOM] and Ryuji gets a Second Awakening when he gets home that night and never makes a lewd comment again)
((also he’s probably bi and doesn’t know how to face that yet so he’s overcompensating FIGHT ME ON THIS))
*EDIT* @defciggy pointed out the duality doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive which is something I normally try to be cognizant of bc ppl are gray areas but I got a lil carried away lol so I just want to retract a little bit and say the writing isn’t necessarily flawed/mistaken/poor but that the good in him is bigger than the bad
it’s rly interesting to me that i keep seeing comments about johnny weir’s documentary about the sochi olympics with things like “does he realize he doesn’t exactly look good here? why does he want ppl to watch it” because it seemed so obvious to me that was exactly the point?
he’s open about it from the beginning. the very start of that documentary he says “at first i didn’t want to think about it bc my love for russia just overrode everything.” he repeatedly shows scenes in which other gay athletes and activists directly challenge him, and he lets them have the last word. he outright apologizes within the first half hour of the documentary. during the scene in his hotel room, we see him at what looks to me like his most honest and vulnerable, and again he actually says “i had not been aware that things were like this, and i hadn’t wanted to consider them, and now i have a different perspective on it.”
it was so clear to me that johnny was very much aware that he often appeared blind and self-focused throughout that documentary and part of his reason for making it was to open not just others’ eyes, but his own as well. it’s part of the reason that documentary felt so honest to me, because he framed himself in an often unflattering light. it looked to me like he came out of that experience thinking more critically and challenging his own views and wanting to remind himself to continue listening and growing.
i honestly don’t know very much about him, but that he showed himself in the way that he did made me more inclined to like him, not less.
Galra feet, ugh.. just what do they look like. I merely got some info from episodes with Ulaz and BoM, but for real, how to draw them? Even do all Galra have the same feet? Dear creators, I need answers.
Throk dilemma once again - dude, how do I put sunglasses on you? Swimming goggles r cool but not enough fabulous.
Please don't leave your copy and pasted forced positivity in my inbox.
Hey nonny! If you can come off of anon you can actually come talk to me about it :+) I wouldn’t know who u are so I don’t want to make the same mistake. Also if you think it’s “forced” you can easily just delete the ask nbd. Again, I’m spreading this positivity because I feel like there’s been a lack of it esp in the community. I’ve received a lot of love back and it really makes me happy that even the smallest of messages brightens up someone’s day. Please come off anon so u can talk to me about it okay? Sorry for coming off as “forceful”! I didn’t expect people would be bothered by having messages sent to them.
They asked for my opinion and I gave it dude idk what you want me to do, lie about my feelings? I don’t like to lie :< also did you miss the part where I said “it’s not harmful at all and I know a
lot of ppl enjoy it and there’s nothing wrong with it if it brings you
joy" bc I don’t care what you wanna do with your time, it’s literally just my opinion and I’m allowed to dislike things if they annoy me
But you’re right! I’ll leave the fandom and never draw
anything for Voltron again, thanks for enlightening me!! <3 from now on I’m going to be a cat blog exclusively
i know that i do not want to be perceived as straight to the general public even though im not out, so i avoid talking about my attraction to men and only point out when girls are pretty, because people will automatically assume im straight if i ever complimented a guys appearance. i think harry does the same so he just never engages with women in the audience like he does with men. im sure he knows what would happen if he ever joked around like that with women in the audience, he knows more people would call him straight even though he’s literally come out and said he doesn’t label his sexuality.
Hello. Your post showed up in the tae/kook tag, and I got curious. You're saying other shippers are "taking" jikook things, such as "the hotel room". Can you tell me what that thing is? Being a tae/kook shipper myself, I just fangirl over things I find cute, I don't go out of my way to "take" things from others just because. So now I must know what you guys felt was actually a jikook moment.
I apologize for my post showing up in the tae/kook tag! I try to not post asks with hate towards other ships without a ’/’, so I’m sorry that one slipped past me.
I don’t think I mentioned the hotel room, because I do believe that was a cute tae/kook vlive and not a ji/kook moment since no one knows who or what was in the room with Kook. I also don’t really like taking moments away from ships since I know all of BTS are close and that every ship is real in the mindset of brotherly bonds.
The things that some (not all obviously) Tae/kook shippers have taken away are the jeonlous tongue thing and satellite jeon. And by “take away”, I don’t mean Jungkook doesn’t do those things with Tae as well, I mean that it started as a Ji/kook thing but one or two shippers changed it into a Tae/kook thing.
What I mean by this is: Jeonlous started out in the ji/kook fandom before the jealous tongue thing even started, shippers would freak out because Jungkook has been shown to be jealous when people (mainly Hobi lol) were around Jimin. Then, the jeonlous tongue thing started to get popular in the Ji/kook fandom (before anyone says anything, it started in the ji/kook fandom first back in 2015, so don’t give me that “its a ______ thing not ji/kook!!” shit), and yoon/min and tae/kook shippers accused us of shipping a toxic relationship and shipping abuse ?? which makes 0 sense bc everybody gets jealous, even of friends and siblings? and jealousy doesn’t equal abuse. But after Ji/kook shippers were shamed for this, multiple gifsets showed up in the tae/kook tag with the “jeonlous tongue” and highlighted how ‘cute’ it was. When ji/kook shippers got mad, and called the people out, tae/kook shippers said it was never a ji/kook thing. ji/kook shippers then clarified that it’s more than likely a nervous tick, but jungkook does it around jimin 90% of the time. They also pointed out that it’s not necessarily (it could be) a tae/kook thing because kook’s done it around jin, namjoon, and hobi when they were near jimin. But again, some tae/kook fans denied it completely and called us delusional.
Then satellite jeon became a tae/kook thing as well. “Satellite Jeon” is a term Knetz came up with because at award shows and stages, they noticed that more often than not, Jungkook was following Jimin around like a lost puppy. This has been in the ji/kook fandom since the start of time, yet tae/kook shippers used it to refer to jungkook being near taehyung. Again some drama like above happened, and ji/kook shippers were shamed for shipping ‘in/cest’ or whatever ppl came up with and we had to explain ourselves again.
I’m not saying ji/kook shippers don’t do this as well (istg if i see one more person take away from a jin/min moment im going to fight them). But it’s just kind of unfair for tae/kook shippers to accuse us of being delusional and shipping abuse only to then use those same things to glorify tae/kook??? like it doesn’t make sense to me.
And i mean, if you want to know what I think an actual jikook moment is…. go through my blog??? like there’s tons of them out there lol.
Have you read Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis? If so, can I skip Kapetria's Tale and still understand the rest of the book? Her story is SO boring and its been holding me back from finishing the book for weeks.
… i, too, am unable to finish PLROA for MONTHS bc of Kapetria’s Tale! FOR THE SAME REASONS. I mean maybe it’s not boring to some ppl? But for me, I’m just… I was weirded out before by the Replimoids and getting to her tale I just didn’t want to buy more of what was being sold.
So I have been really struggling to pick it up again EVEN THO IT IS RIGHT ON MY DESK IN PLAIN VIEW, mocking me every day that I don’t just CRACK IT OPEN AND TAKE MY MEDICINE like I should if I really cared about this series (which I clearly do).
I went and asked around & skimmed ahead bc I very much like to be spoiled, and I won’t spoil you here, but from what I skimmed and from what I’ve been told, I don’t think you need to know Kapetria’s Tale to understand the rest of the book. It goes back to our vampires and their shenanigans and SCIENCE, and in the old days we might have called this all very “cracky” stuff, but the ending might even have been written before the Atlantis portion was added in, it seems to depend so little on it, but again, that’s from my spoilage.
…But currently? What are ppl’s thoughts on how PLROA ends? I would like ppl to speak freely, so there may be spoilers in comments/reblogs.
Message me privately, if you prefer, and I’ll add it to this post under a cut if it’s spoilery.
ppl who constantly complain about overwatch changing is so weird to me like i play overwatch most every day for hours and without heroes being changed, nerfed, buffed, reworked, it would get so boring? like we’re all just playing the same maps over and over again and the only thing that makes it fun is new metas, unexpected compositions, new tricks with heroes, changes in general…
idk i cant relate to people who just want overwatch to stay the same or complain that we should call overwatch ‘overwatch 2′ cause of the changes like. overwatch is a game that needs to change constantly!! thats the nature of fps games…. if you dont like that maybe overwatch isnt for u idk
