i know this isnt good at all

I usually don’t make non-fandom posts but I keep seeing white people all over my facebook saying things like “at the end of the day what am I suppose to do to stop it?” in response to Charlottesville.

Well, fellow white people, how about we at least speak up to our racist family members? That might be a good place to start.

I live in a small town in Kentucky, you can find a confederate flag on almost every street, either on someone’s window or their truck or even hanging from their house. At a yearly festival (Court Day) in our town, every other stand has blankets, dresses, bikinis, and jewelry with the confederate flag on every piece.

I grew up surrounded by racist ‘jokes’ about hangings, lynchings, and every stereotype there is. I grew up thinking that was normal. Family members used the N word without a thought. Gay people? That was the worst thing in the world (you can imagine their reaction to my not being straight). They were likened to pedophiles. Middle-eastern? According to some family, they were terrorists. Mexicans? My uncle despised them as much as he did 'the gays’ and 'the blacks’.

When I was in 5th grade, I had my very first crush (on a black boy in my class), I was told that I had to 'stay in with my own kind’. I was a child when I was told this. 

I don’t even know how I didn’t become like that. 

I’ve argued for hours with family over their racist views, and they get tired of my rants still, and yeah, some of them haven’t changed a bit. But, some of them have come a long way. Now, the 'N’ word is banned from the house and the Confederate flag is never allowed. No offensive joke is tolerated and stereotypes are argued. I’ve heard my mom actively call someone on their bullshit and my grandmother even has progressed.  

We really have to talk to our family’s when they are like this. It might seem useless, but sometimes it can do a world of good. Sometimes, you really can change someone’s mind.

I cannot understand when people see white supremacy/racism right there in the open and choose to be silent. If someone doesn’t have the common decency to at least denounce this kind of thing when they see it.. then they are just as complicit as the Nazi/KKK. We white people created this problem of white supremacy and we must be the ones to teach our sons and daughters different, we must stop it.

Your silence is complicity.

important things no one remembers about kim seokjin
  1. he came into big hit with absolutely zero singing or dancing experience (unlike all the other members minus v) and had to put in an incredible amount of effort and hard work to meet their level of talent, proving that hard work does pay off and can be just as good as talent.
  2. he spends the allowance he gets from his parents on ingredients. not just for himself; he selflessly uses his own money to make meals for all of the members to enjoy with him. 
  3. he’s the one that mediates the group and stops jokes before they go too far. I guarantee you, if seokjin wasn’t in the group, there would probably be a lot more group infighting.
  4. he literally drives jungkook to school. without him jungkook would probably be a highschool dropout tbh
  5. pretty much everyone in bangtan has hinted at some point that he’s the strongest member in the group. if you thought jimin or jungkook was ripped weLL have I got a surprise 4 u
  6. oh, and if u like how jungkook has muscles, just remember he only started working out because he started going with jin to the gym 
  7. that one time they asked him his ideal type and he started talking about how much he likes dogs
  8. he literally carries around a spoon and special chopsticks. if that is not the most adorable fucking thing
  9. people always talk about how relatable he is bc of his love for food and his handsomeness, but more important than that is that he’s willing to show himself eating to people - as an idol. He’s one of the few idols that projects a healthy image to everyone, by letting them know it’s okay to eat. he shows that you don’t have to starve yourself to be beautiful (i mean, just look at him !) 
  10. he also shows that you are allowed to be confident in your looks. how many times do we hear idols say “oh no…i don’t think i’m handsome” or only say they’re handsome as a joke? jin isn’t afraid to be self-confident and show he has high self-esteem and it’s so important for young people to see and hear and know it’s okay to feel like that. 
  11. jin is just such a good and lovely role model (he’s truly hard working, selfless, diplomatic, nurturing, kind, adorable, silly, and mentally and physically healthy) and I wish more people would see and appreciate that about him. let’s all be more like kim seokjin. the world would be a better place

Power Rangers Living Together Headcanon

Created with the help of the lovely @catyz101 and the wonderful @vintagecarter go ahead and give them a follow please.

- Two years after the attack, when the rangers graduate highschool, they decide to build a house together in the mountains near the ship.

-When goldar went down billy managed to save a lot of gold
“Like my dad said, you find it you keep it”
Needless to say they’re fucking loaded.

-Kim and Trini adopted a cat courtesy of her brothers. The twins found him and managed to keep him for a week before their mom found out and he was sent to live with Trini.
“Take care of gato for us”
“Wait you named i-”
“GATO, is in great hands”

-The cat loves everyone but Zack and Jason. Every time the cat cuddles up to Billy “traitor” can be heard faintly whispered through the house.

-Zack goes to the kitchen at 1 in the morning and finds the cat just sitting there staring at him, they have a staring contest for two mintues until he slowly backs away back into his room.

-They rotate dinner every night. They all make something thats authentic to them but the weekends are take out nights. It an unspoken rule of the house

-Zack almost breaking his neck doing a double take on Trini leaving from Kim’s room in the early morning

-“ITS NOT A WALK OF SHAME IF ITS YOUR OWN HOUSE” Kim passing by headed to the kitchen “you are definitely doing the walk of shame babe.”
“KIMBERLY”

-Billy quietly comments from the back “why are you so surprised, thats the 5th time this week.”
“Billy, its tuesday”

- “Hello, yes, i found your number in the yellow pages i was calling to tell you that MY BEST FRIEND JUST GOT LAID also a large pizza please”

-Trini watches a novella one day outta habit, and suddenly Jason and Zack are addicted. “No, trini you cant change the channel we are watching that!”

-Kim puts pink hair dye in her shampoo to figure out who keeps using it. The culprit was Jason…… and Trini

-“Who the fuck put jello in the toilet”
“You see its not actually jello its this silicone-”
“BILLY?!”
“I’ll take it you’re upset with me….”

-Theyre the hardware stores best customer. The owner thinks they own a construction company. He is yet to be corrected

-One day the boys come back from the store early and hear a scream in the house. They all barge in too kims room and walk in on the girls.
“Oh my god GET OUT”
Billy closes his eyes and runs smack into the wall putting a hole in it while jason and Zack are running out dodging pillows.

-“Steve come here girl” “Zack we are not naming our dog Steve” “what about zordon?” “you wanna name my daughter after wall dad? How dare?” “you were about to name her Steve?!” “Personally i thik she looks like a Steve…” “Thank you billy”

-“Oh well if it isnt satan himself coming to visit my room when it does not belong here!” “Guys the cat isnt that bad”
“Billy do not speak on matters that do not concern you”

-“Who taught you savages to do the laundry?” “Trini relax.” “Relax? Jason, Isnt it bad enough my hair is pink but now my white tshirts are too because Zack put your shirts in with mine.”

-“Hey yellow, pink, your hell cat just attacked steve.”
“Do you dare slander my cats good name?! YOU CAN MEET ME IN THE PIT!!”

-They have color coded bath Towels. Zack likes to steal someone elses each week which isnt a problem until he struts out the bathroom in pink towels when Kim’s parents come to visit.

-“I know DAMN well i had last nights episode of Rupauls drag race recorded who DELETED IT?!?” “Sorry Zack that may have been me, but dont worry i have it recorded on my tv too” “Billy, you are my hero”

-Gato steals steves bed all the time and its the leading cause of argument in the house.

- “Satan’s spawn please, my daughters bed is too big for you and she cannot sleep in your small bed” hiss hiss “Okay that was rude” hiiiisss “TRINI! CONTROL YOUR SON AND GET HIM OUTTA MY DAUGHTERS BED RIGHT NOW”

-Fire alarm goes off at six in the morning. Multiple voices are heard screaming “KIM” from 4 seperate rooms

-She was just making toast.

ive been literally watching nothing but the great british bake off so naturally this had to happen

click on pics for character name and hcs!!

Spiderman Homecoming is like getting your first really good glass of cold water on a hot day

Its cool, its refreshing, it might feel super intense during but after you’re energized and feeling really good

And someone might ask, whats so special about this water? You’ve had water before, this isnt new

But then its like well yes i did have water before but it was lukewarm and although it satisfied me because it was all i had, I didnt even KNOW water could be as cool as this fresh cold glass!

The metaphor has gotten away from me but spiderman homecoming is my favorite spiderman movie and you should really go see it

just some sketches i did but never finished/posted bc….. i’m not actually sure?? confidence issues i guess

i’ll probably redraw and refine these later c:

whispers thank you for all the notes, comments, and follows btw. y’all give me random bursts of courage and i end up posting things and i have not regretted any yet—- (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ

So, every time I start to think about anything based in Insomnia, I constantly have to remind myself of the sheer vastness of the city so I thought I would throw together some quick references for all of you others out me who may be planning things based in the crown-city so you don’t forget the sheer magnitude of the place, especially since in the game we only get to explore an absolutely tiny and minescule amount in the grand scheme of things.  

All images are either from my own screenshots or good ol’ google

Imagine every modern city rolled into one and on steroids.  The citadel itself is based off of Shinjuku but from kingsglaive we see many glimpses or areas of the entire city and it definitely seems to take from most modern major cities.  The fact that they have their own currency (at the beginning of the game prompto questions what a gil is so they either have their own currency or its all electronic but that is a tale for another day) should demonstrate the magnitude of this place.

And from above it looks even more vast:

So, its pretty fucking huge there is no doubt about it and I think we can all get that into our minds.  So the next step, is how big is it in comparison to the places within our open world that we are free to explore?

What we can see on our world map is approximately a quarter of the whole thing, since we have but one of the four corners on our map.  The walls around the outside of it are bigger than the main roads in Leide.  Pretty damn big. 

As you can see, the distance of the road that takes you from the city checkpoint, to the actual physical gates leading into insomnia is comparable to that of the road between said checkpoint and galdin quay, so judging by ingame driving times etc just to get out of insomnia and into leide would be at least an hour or two’s drive.  But then also not long in the grand scheme of things if you think how long it would take to drive between two of the cities furthest points (not taking into account ringroads etc but that again is way above my paygrade).

Now let’s see, the first place we go to in game after someone *cough*dammitprompto*cough* broke our car, hammerhead.  Tiny little garage, has a caravan a restaurant and a shop, standard service station sort of thing: (it goes without saying screenshot references at this point were all taken at the same zoom point yaddayadda)

well.  and that is being generous being the general square crop on hammerhead. There would be buildings that could easily engulf the entire stop.  

So how about somewhere bigger, Lestallum it seems a hive of activity and has a lot of residents…

Doesn’t look that much too big but oh wait, that entire square isnt the entirety of lestallum, if we badly cut out the habitable section of lestallum aka every bit that we can explore and place it on our grand insomnia…

How did the insomnian refugee’s all fit at lestallum?!? Asking the real questions here.

To truly comprehend, how about we take a look at longwythe peak, that fella, you know the one, beady eyes tries to flatten you our good old friend the adamantoise, round of applause everyone~~~

well shit.

So, I hope that gives you all a better realisation as to the sheer size of insomnia, and that it may help anybody else out plotting anything in insomnia be it past present or future to truly understand its scale.  

I just.. get so personally offended when he says “he’s too pale ” for things. example a : ripped jeans, like please phil don’t #freeyourknee, #freeyourwholedamnthigh I want want to see the porcelain like skin peak through. phil is also very concerned with certain shades of color. He said white wouldn’t look good on him,, please white t’s would cling to his body perfectly. “I wouldn’t suit beige or browns .” ugh honey, a soft beige sweater ,, uhhh dress clothes with brown slacks, please. Also (there was a mention of phil buying a vest in a undertale) he literally said “the world isnt ready for these guns” jokingly. Well, I want to see all the freckles cascading your arms ,, freckles are gifts not curses. [Would you ever wear a crop top? “]
phil then said he wouldn’t think the world not like his stomach. BAB, please understand that you don’t have to skinny to be absolutely stunning!!

In all honestly, I just want Phil to be comfortable in his own skin. I want him to know that all skin types are unique and wonderful . I just want Phil to flaunt what he has because he would look so good in almost everything. Even when he’s two shades past ghost.

‘Its been a few millenia..’

I have returned with my new graphic tablet and ready to go!! Beauuutiful Huion WH1409 I love her already and I named her huge ass Goliath! Figured I’d start off with a new Bluellow Pearl Fanart~!

P.S: I totally dont have that headcannon where they fell inlove at first sight but know they can’t be together because they serve the diamonds so they’ll always be apart.

To The Fanfic Writers

I just wanted to say thank you.

Thank you for giving us more stories based on the stories we love.

Thank you for being so open and welcoming and taking our requests even though we know you are probably tired.

Thank you for giving happiness, laughter, and sometimes even sadness into my lonely world.

Thank you for putting me on the edge of my seat wondering what’s gonna happen next, even though I probably already know.

And this goes out to all fanfic writers.

To the ones who just started out and are trying to find their place, to those who have been here the longest and have already found their place. To the ones who think their writing isnt any good (even though it is). To the ones who know their writing is good but are not cocky.

You have filled my life with almost as much joy (possibly more) as the fandom you write for.

Please dont ever stop doing what you are doing, because even if you dont know it, you are making someone somewhere very, very happy.

anonymous asked:

Do you ever watch tv? Which are better, modern tv shows or old time radio dramas?

they’re very different things. modern tv–or at least a good chunk of it–is focused around scandal, which isnt something i really care about. also theres lots of dramatic background noises to increase how dramatic things are, but mostly i really cant take it seriously. i like to watch fantasy or scifi stuff, though. and steve and i like to watch sports. (we’ve been very carefully keeping him away from any extreme sports and the xgames. the last thing we need is steve trying to use the Deathbike to do stunts).

i like to watch cutthroat kitchen. it’s basically exactly what happens when more than one avenger tries to use the kitchen at the same time, except i dont have to help clean up afterwards. 

the old radio dramas were fun. campy by modern standards, but we used to really enjoy them. tony was nice enough to get old recordings for stevie and i, so we could hear how things ended for our favorite characters. be warned: tony is terrible to listen to radio with. he gets easily distracted and starts talking. 

steve and i used to have HUGE arguments about what certain characters looked like as kids. he would draw what he thought they looked like, and i would draw what i thought they looked like, and steve would always win because nobody ever looks like what i draw. humans dont work like that. 

i am not good at drawing.
