i mean how can someone deny that

A lot of people apparently think it’s a valid statement when they say that Stiles and Derek hated each other, and I wholeheartedly say, you’re wrong.

I’d like to call this my masterpost for proof that Stiles and Derek did, indeed, care for one another very much. I may not list all, but I will list the ones I find the most notable:

1. Stiles getting in Chris Argent’s face about Kate and what Kate did to Derek and his family. A lot of people look pass this scene, just a mere glance, but it truly caught my attention. I don’t think this has ever been addressed by Stiles before this scene, but in a part of Formality, Chris began questioning Stiles on what he had to do to tame Scott (trying to argue for why werewolves should be taken down) and Stiles brought up the Hale fire and immediately got upset and rather infuriated at what had happened. He knew what Kate did, knew what it did to Derek and it got to him. And that’s what got to me.

2. The iconic pool scene.

Firstly, Derek told Stiles to go protect himself, ready to fight by himself.

Now, of course, Stiles did not listen.

Secondly- wait, do I really need to explain why this scene is so important?

Stiles went back for Derek, who he claimed to hate, and saved him, kept him from drowning. (Totally screwed up his phone in the process but whateves.)

This is still one of the most notable Sterek scenes.

3. Derek saving Stiles from getting killed by Isaac.

4. Derek also protected Stiles from Peter in the hospital scene.

5. This scene.

What really got me about this one is that Stiles wasn’t that close to Boyd. He hardly even knew Boyd, but what he did know was how much Boyd meant to Derek.

What he knew was that Derek needed comfort, and he gave it in the slightest way.

It wasn’t much, just a hand on the shoulder, but he did it. He did it and this scene showed that he cared, that he was there for Derek.

6. Derek trusting Stiles over his own girlfriend.

Not to mention that later on in the episode, when Jennifer stated that she could be the only one to take them to Stiles’ dad, Derek went into full attack mode.

7. Derek being protective over Stiles, ready to chase after him because he knew what Stiles was going to do would be risky.

8. The elevator scene.

Reminder that this scene was an episode after the argument they had, on the same day and possibly an hour apart at most.

What really got me about this scene was the worry on Stiles’ face when he saw Derek laying there. He just stopped all together for a moment before moving in to help.

The evident panic in his voice as he kept on telling Derek to wake up just warmed my heart.

9. Derek was incredibly hesitant in taking Stiles down while the Nogistune had taken over him. He hardly even suggested it.

10. Stiles worrying about Derek in season 4, after he got taken. He even refused to leave without finding Derek.

11. Stiles hesitating to go save his own best friend because Derek was close to dying.

This one scene basically saved season 4. This one scene broadcasted just how much Stiles truly cares for Derek.

Guys, he hesitated to save his own best friend. Understand how major that is.

Stiles only left when Derek told him to go, demanded it, and even than he still wasn’t sure and looked back once more before going.

This scene was so significant, probably the most significant Sterek scene ever.

12. Everyone looking at Stiles before Derek left.

This may not seem like a big deal, but I take this as his friends understanding just how much Derek means to him. He had to watch Derek walk away and I feel like they got it, it just clicked.

13. Stiles smiling at Derek’s initials.

The fact that something as simple as Derek’s initials had Stiles stopping just to smile really means something.

And if that wasn’t enough to prove how much he missed Derek, remember the following episode when Scott brought Derek up?

Stiles’ pause and the look on his face and the look on Scott’s face like he knew something, knew that Derek meant more to Stiles than Stiles was saying.

14. Stiles is Derek’s anchor.

Anchor. Anchor.

This is important.

An anchor being someone you feel safe and secure around, someone who can pull you back, someone meaningful.

Stiles was that for Derek, and if that’s not enough to prove just how much Derek cares for and appreciates Stiles, I don’t know what is.

In conclusion, you can say whatever you want about Sterek but do not deny how important they were to each other. It’s ridiculous and not even an argument. In the beginning, they probably hated each other but now? You’re only playing yourself if you’re really trying to argue that they mean nothing to each other.

Aries: Let yourself heal. Drink enough vodka to clean out the wounds they left on your insides. It’s okay to shatter sometimes and it’s okay to stand for what’s right. Even if everything hurts, just keep breathing.

Taurus: sometimes making excuses isn’t good enough, how dare you deny someone else their pain. Sometimes a situation is just fucked up and that’s all there is too it. Sometimes it can’t be fixed, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.

Gemini: Think about yourself for once. Stop putting people before you, even if it’s me. Let yourself rest you can’t keep running ragged all the god damn time. I know you want to protect everyone but you cant. We love you for it, but you cant.

Cancer: Pain is going to end I swear it will. I know it feels eternal right now. If it’s all you can do to hang on then fucking hang on because you’re strong enough to beat this.

Leo:  Learn to keep your lips shut because some things aren’t meant to be shared. I know they aren’t told as secrets or at two am but they are still not to be talked about so damn casually.

Virgo: This time of year is always hard. Always scary. But you can pull through. I believe you. Believe that you’re past the hospital visits and all the scary parts of this. You are past it.

Libra: Sometimes cutting up yourself to give others isn’t the best solution. You are not always the missing puzzle piece. You don’t always belong and you won’t always be enough. That’s okay.

Scorpio: Wrap yourself up in bubble wrap if you have to. Keep yourself from getting hurt. Keep yourself from opening wounds again as hard as it is. I know you’re scared. I am too. But you’ll be okay.

Sagittarius: Sometimes recovery Isn’t linear. I know you’ve been fighting for progress but sometimes all you need is a backslide to get a little strength back. I know it’s not easy. But you’ll be okay.

Capricorn: What are you doing? Seriously. What the hell are you trying to do here? You need to say what the plan is so we can get on board. Because all we can tell right now is you’re exploding. We need to know how to pick up the pieces.

Aquarius: Stop being ashamed. Your scars, your wounds, your damage is nothing to fucking hide. If it makes them uncomfortable tell them to fuck off. This is your life and you should be proud.

Pisces: Learn to stop taking so many risks. Running right to the edge one day you won’t be able to stop. Learn how to pull back sometimes. I know it’s hard but it’s all you can do.

anonymous asked:

I’m not sure if you’re someone who gives writing tips, if not that’s okay. I get it. But I was curious. If you’re having a dialogue where the character is ranting, the words are kinda just flying out of their mouths and it’s a lot of words, how would you format that? Like, would you put it all in one paragraph, do you interrupt it with an action (s/he said, waving wildly) or would it just be dialogue?

I do as often as I can! I get a lot of asks, so I apologize to those whose questions I don’t get to :( But I enjoy talking about how I do things/what I’ve learned! Just keep in mind that writing is an art and, like all art, there’s no one true way to do something. So everything I suggest is just that– a suggestion!

Lots of Words Rants!

So you have a character who’s saying a lot of words in a big rant! 

1. Static unbroken rant. The benefit here is that the reader, generally, naturally reads this very quickly! It’s probably what you’re looking for when you say “a lot of words” and it definitely stuns both the reader and the other characters! For example:

“You want to know what I think,” she says, mouth a thin line. “Right. Okay. Well I think it’s interesting how you only look for an opinion when people owe you something. I think it’s really convenient that you wait until you can deny someone something, something like basic human rights, before crowd sourcing validation and then you think that it means shit when they don’t speak against you. I think you’re a coward and that no amount of intimidation or ass-kissing will break through the denial you’ve got going on. So if you’re looking for me to tell you that you’re a hero or that we can’t do this without you, you should wait until you actually have something on me.”

The silence is deafening as she takes another sip of her coffee, Damien’s mouth opening and closing as he tries to come up with a response. He looks around the table, hoping to see similar shock, and receives another unpleasant surprise when no one will meet his eyes.

There are two problems that I’ve had with the Big Wall of Text. One, it can lose the reader! Despite emotion or content, it’s easy to skip from the first sentence or two to the last line or two. Some readers will read it quickly, but others might skip it entirely.

Second, with no physical movements, it can be hard to get back into the scene, especially since unbroken rants w/o movement generally end in silence.

2. Active Unbroken Rant. Breaking up a rant with action keeps the reader’s attention and makes them read a little closer. It also has the benefit of giving the rant some texture by escalating or deescalating the emotion in each part or by providing emphasis.

“You want to know what I think.” She shakes her head. “Right. Okay. Well, I think it’s interesting how you only look for an opinion when people owe you something. “

Damien’s jaw tenses and she can tell that he wants to lean away from her as she stands, looming over the table, coffee forgotten. All around them, the other rebels are staring at her wide-eyed.

“I think,” she continues, biting off the ends of her words, “that it’s really convenient that you wait until you can deny someone something, something like basic human rights, before crowd sourcing validation and then–” she bares her teeth “– you think that it means shit  when they don’t speak against you.” 

He doesn’t look away from her, not to the left or right where his devoted followers are, as usual, sitting uselessly. She can barely stand it.

Her words come faster now, like a flood after the damn has been broken. “I think you’re a coward and that no amount of intimidation or ass-kissing will break through the denial you’ve got going on. So if you’re looking for me to tell you that you’re a hero or that we can’t do this without you, you should wait until you actually have something on me.”

So with breaks for action/reaction, you get a scene that’s a little more urgent than the one without action. Action helps the emotion build in the rant whereas the static rant feels more like a slap in the face.

The downside here is that you have to build the tension and keep everyone’s  body language appropriate to the scene.

3. Broken Rant (active or static). So it’s a rant and you want the fast-talking character to be the star of the scene. Seems counter-intuitive to have another character talk, but it can actually help speed up the reading of the scene while also showing that this rant is dominating it. For example:

“You want to know what I think,” she says. She shakes her head. “Right. Okay. Well, I think it’s interesting how you only look for an opinion when people owe you something.”

Damien jerks like he’s been slapped. “What is that–”

“I think,” she continues, giving no indication of hearing him, “ that it’s really convenient that you wait until you can deny someone something–”


“–something like basic human rights,  before crowd sourcing validation and then you think that it means shit when they don’t speak against you. I think you’re a coward and that no amount of intimidation or ass-kissing will break through the denial you’ve got going on.”

The silence rings around the table, the tension so think between her and the other rebel that no one dare move.

Eliza leans forward and picks up her coffee. “So,” she says, still staring him down, “if you’re looking for me to tell you that you’re a hero or that we can’t do this without you, you should wait until you actually have something on me.”

The little interjections from Damien, and the way I’ve broken them off, shows that things are happening very quickly. It’s a broken back and forth that both ups the tension and the speed!

Hope this helps! If you have any more questions feel free to drop by, I’ll try and get to them asap :)

you know something that frustrates me about the way people talk about with diagnosis is… people make it sound like it’s so definite.

like, when i was like 12, i almost got the diagnosis chldhood bipolar, but then they just decided against it, i started treatment for adhd.. and i stopped taking meds, fucked my education up for years… started taking em again when i was like 15-16, and it helped me so much… what happened with those years? i was technically diagnosed, didn’t get help.

then i also got the diagnosis bipolar again.. that medication helped me a lot. then 2 other therapists called that diagnosis bullshit, one said they have no idea how anyone could ever think i’m bipolar, the other was just a tiny bit confused..

when i was young, they said i’m probably autistic.. i brought it up again with a therapist later, he said he’d prefer to not write it in documents because it would look bad for me to have lots of diagnoses listed..

at one point, i was denied treatment at the gender clinic because they thought it could make my mental state worse..

and you know.. going through all of this… i’m kind of wondering.. how can someone think that a diagnosis is like the only thing that matters? i mean, medical professionals sort of go off your self-evaluation and self-diagnosed symptoms anyway… and sometimes they will just refuse to diagnose you for many reasons beyond you not having the disorder.. and in some cases having a diagnosis can make things worse for you..

i think that it’s quite dangerous how some people deny this reality, and i frankly don’t get the kind of people who are against self-diagnosis.

anonymous asked:

Sophie, I really want to know why you are so diligent about A. Lot. Of. Stuff. But mostly lately why you're so diligent on Camila being gay gay gay. I understand someone wanting someone to be something, and I csnt understand if you're just being playful and witty sometimes or if you really are 100% in your notions. How are you really going to ignore the fact that she does use male pronouns and says Boys, Boys, BOYS.. and you're just always going to think shes lying or making it up? Bi/Pans.

I don’t think you know what the word “diligent” means sweets but anyways I think you mean why am I so set on Camila being gay?

Okay first of all you can’t deny the fact that Camila has been completely inconsistent in her stories - first she didn’t have her first kiss but turned out she did, then she’s never been in a serious relationship but the album is about someone she’s obviously been very serious with, but then again it’s not about boys, so it’s supposed to be about her journey, and yet she keeps bringing up this “relationship” and this “someone” she saw at the studio and thought about while shooting the music video - then the whole album is a concept to tell a story, a story she said she doesn’t have anything more to say about, that she got everything out of her, and yet there she is a couple of days later saying that the album isn’t finished and that she needs a boyfriend to finish it! You add to that the fact that she didn’t sing the “her” during her BBMAS performance, because someone certainly told her not to - I’m not saying Camila is lying because I absolutely want her to be gay, I’m saying she’s lying because I really think she is!  After all these years it’s pretty easy to detect Camila’s bullshit and the management’s plans behind them!

As to me being so set on her being a “lesbian” and not “bi” or “pan” I’m usually just joking around, because non of us know for sure except Camila, she’s the only one who gets to decide what she is and if she even wants to label herself - so when I pull out my Gaymila file or slide it’s usually because there is a gay behavior there and tbh it’s hilarious how many there are!  But nevertheless , my personal opinion, my guess, my theory, that I keep strictly to this blog, is that Camila is a lesbian, just like others are gonna think she’s straight, or bi, or pan, or something else, this is all supposition - if tomorrow Camila identifies herself clearly as one of these sexualities then I won’t love her any less - I won’t lie, if tomorrow she gets a real boyfriend, not a pr stunt, I’ll be disappointed for sure but it won’t be the end of the world, I love her too much to get hung up on that.

That being said, as long as I don’t see her actually in a straight relationship, I’ll keep believing that she’s gay and is forced to stay in closet because of the industry she’s evolving in, which is something that highly pisses me off and worries me.

I’ll add to that I have the right to have a settle opinion and believe what I believe as long as I’m respectful to Camila and to other people’s beliefs - you’ll never see me say to an anon that they’re wrong for believing that Camila might be straight or bi or pan, I just respectfully agree to disagree or use a Camren laughing gif, because I like them and they bring a nice effect! (also I truly find it funny to even imagine Camila with a guy, I can’t help it, it’s just the way my brain works - just like I find mascots falling hilarious, I find straight Camila hilarious as well)

You know I once answered to an anon who thought all the Camren theories were absurd, that you should just take this whole thing as a giant fanfic that feeds off real events, and in my fanfic Camila happens to be gay - I’ll never bring that fanfic into the real world because I’ll never directly bother the girls with it, and as long as I do that, I see no reason for me not to be as delusional as I want to, and believe Camila is as gay as it comes.

ok but we all know how betty had this insanely huge crush on archie, right? who didn’t really like her back? well, many times, lgbt people tend to suppress their sexuality by having “a crush” on someone basically unattainable of the opposite sex, meaning that subconsciously this “crush” can be used as an excuse to deny same gender attraction that they don’t want to accept or deal with.

it’s also really curious how betty only starts actively pursuing archie, so to say, right after she meets veronica. she asks archie to that dance after v kissed her. but who does betty say should also go to the dance with them? veronica. i feel like betty is trying to suppress her attraction to v due to internalized heteronormativity that was probably planted by her mom, by trying to initiate something more with archie. i mean, they’d been friends forever, and just only when veronica comes along she gives her enough courage to ask him to a dance? i don’t think that betty doesn’t love archie, but maybe isn’t as in love with him as she thinks she is. veronica makes her stronger, more confident and a lot happier than archie ever could.

Hey, I'm the anon from before with the question about anti sex attitudes. Like I said, I don't think this applies to the ace community as a whole and my opinion on it doesn't change because of a couple "allo people are gross" post. I just wonder if the community sees allosexual people (I'm bi myself) as "predatory" or similar. For example if there's a post "reblog if you're a safe space for asexuals" and I ocassionally post about finding someone hot, does that make me unsafe? etc.

Oh! No, no, you can do nearly anything with your blog. Safe for asexuals means you won’t reblog or make posts that deny that asexuality is valid or that asexuality is LGBT+, nor belittle the concept of acephobia. You could be a porn blog and be safe for asexuals.

I also don’t think as a whole aces find allosexuals predatory in the slightest. I sometimes find, how do I put this, systems predatory? I think loan companies are predatory towards the poor for example. At worst I am hesitant towards those who benefit from a system unfairly and refuse to dismantle it. (This is true across the board and not just an ace v. allo thing. For example cis people who don’t work to dismantle the gender binary.) But hesitation isn’t because I find them predatory, it’s because I want to avoid verbal abuse.

In queer spaces where none of us benefit from heteronormativity again I don’t consider anyone predatory. I just want to be able to have a seat at the table without someone pulling it out from under me.

I think this idea of predatory comes from the idea of deviancy. That sex is bad, and that those who want it are bad. I don’t believe that, and very very few queer people do. That idea is feed by religious morality that declares sex for fun is negative. It see it spit up on my shoes far more often then I see come from the mouth of aces.
(I think the idea of predators in the queer community also seems to come from transphobia but it’s 4 am and I’m worried that you brought a lot of assumptions about aces to the table but my hope is that my candidness convinces you of my honest sincerity here.)

Lmao! You guys are wild. Down isn't about a blow job. That's Halsey's new track with Quavo called Lie. Down is just about holding down someone you love no matter what. For more context, Gucci wrote his verses about how his wife held him down for years while he was in jail. Hence the Bonnie and Clyde reference.

You can’t deny the fact that there’s an obvious innuendo in there!

Long as you’re holding me down, down, down
I’m gon’ keep lovin’ you down, down, down

That looks a lot like the description of a bj to me - they’re playing on the word “Down”, because you can hold someone down figuratively but also literally - it can also be linked to the terms “going down on someone” - “lovin’ you down” can also mean I’m gonna “love” you, aka pleasure you, “down there” 

It’s the same thing as “gonna make it harder” or “ain’t no getting off early” in work from home - those are all sexual innuendos

A Disturbing Day

I’m almost at a loss for words after the troll action today on IG. Almost but not quite. 😜It’s very disturbing to see these trolls in action. Seeing their accounts get deleted, seeing them create new accounts and escalate their harassment and then see them attacking those who are reporting them. They are harder to eliminate than a nest of snakes.

One of them appeared to create a new account, post 3 hateful comments then deleted her own account. The comments were there but the account was closed. Another posted a death wish this evening. I (and others) reported her and she is gone now.

The data lounge sock puppet reappeared under a new but similar name and spewed the same tired, old lies.

Marina617 went to her Twitter account asking for help reporting the person who has been actively calling her out on IG and was probably instrumental in getting her account closed. I mean if IG agreed her account was bullying how could they call the person who reported her a bully? She’s the lovely person who has had more than one con pic taken with Sam. SMH over that one. I don’t know how someone can be a Sam super fan and ridicule his girlfriend like she does.

Kim denying she is OL2013 takes the cake. Maybe she has her different accounts so compartmentalized in her mind that she forgot. Did she really think her name is Shipper McShipperson at that moment in time? It doesn’t matter because all her various accounts add up to an obsession with Sam and as she says in her bio she’ll ship it no matter what. She doesn’t have to spread the lie that Sam and Cait got married in Dec ‘15 to keep shipping however. That was done to provoke and she typed that comment with glee. What a sicko.

Another lovely account that has since been taken down called MM a whore and said her job for Sam involved performing a sex act on him. Another said neither Sam nor Mac were good enough for Cait 🙄and that Sam was a loser dating a loser! (She spelled it “looser”) It makes me laugh out loud to type that because it’s so childish and ridiculous. Is she proud of being a fan of a loser? I wish I had that pic of Sam at Baftas Scotland in 2015 when he didn’t win and had a photo taken with his hand making an L on his forehead!

Then there are the comments and posts accusing NSTs of being the hateful ones! JHRC is that one rich! Do any NSTs have IG accounts mocking anyone or shippers? Of course not. I blog about the hate accounts because they can’t be allowed to bully Mac with impunity. I call out Tumblr posts that spread misinformation but that is usually when an anon brings it to my attentions. I try to leave them alone.

I report the abusive comments on IG. It’s OK to police my own fandom. I’m not reporting shippers for shipping. I’m reporting and calling out the bullies and the liars. I’m not reporting anyone to MPC unless they make a specific MPC rule violation. So far I haven’t seen any and I hope other people leave MPC alone. The actors’ charities can’t scrutinize each donation, they are just happy to get the money to help children and others with cancer. WCC, WCCUSA, Bloodwise and MPC need to be left alone.

I consider myself a middling Outlander fan. I only have my personal IG and Twitter accounts and they don’t have anything Outlander in their names. I had my Twitter long before Outlander the tv show. I haven’t had my pic taken with Sam at a con and probably never will - that’s just not me. If I saw him on the street I would say hello but probably would not ask for a pic unless it was outside the stage door at a theatre where he was appearing. I’m currently reading a book that is not Outlander (I’ve read all 8 books plus the side books multiple times) and I have no trips to Scotland planned - not even the MPC Gathering even though I am a member. Events like that are just too big and cumbersome for me - too many people.

I say this because I understand many fans have a lot more emotionally invested in Sam and Cait and the show and books than I do and for much longer. Maybe they have too much invested if they can get so upset over Sam dating someone who is not Cait.

If Mac posting a photo that proves she is in SA sets you off so much that you have to rant about it on her account rather than on a closed FB group or Tumblr group then just maybe you are over invested.

If you have sock puppet accounts to enable you to troll you may be over invested.

If you get your jollies manipulating Mac’s IG posts in order to ridicule and bully her maybe you are over invested in Sam, Cait and/or Outlander and it’s time to find some balance in your life.

the bit where jun calls katara zuko's girlfriend and they both say 'she's/he's not my girlfriend/boyfriend' was teasing the ship cuz its this cliche anime trope... they tease zutara in book 3 in such a mean-spirited way like 'haha as if that'll happen!!'

Oh yes, it was definitely a tease. I like that anime trope, it’s cute! Since Ehasz wrote that episode, I think it was more of a reference to his original idea for their romance rather than a mean-spirited jab at Zutara fans. I liked that moment because it is actually more consistent with how Zuko and Katara acted around someone they were attracted to in Book 2. They do not show this type of chemistry around their canon love interests.

With Jet, Katara was clearly still attracted to him, even though she was very angry with him. Toph teases her about it, and asks if Jet was her boyfriend. She gets really flustered and denies it, but Toph can tell she’s lying. Sokka also teases her about kissing Jet later.

When the waiter called Jin Zuko’s girlfriend, he had to shout out his denial, making for a very awkward moment. Clearly he was attracted to her, but he didn’t want to admit it to himself because of his low self-esteem. I’m sure he felt like an idiot during that moment, and he probably thought she would be annoyed with him. Probably why he tried to juggle for her!

That’s why Kataang and Maiko are so forced. Katara does NOT have romantic chemistry with Aang. And because the original story was structured to let her go, you have many scenes specifically highlighting how she cannot communicate with him. She keeps her pain about her mother to herself. When the subject finally comes up between Katara and Aang, he is insensitive to her feelings and this causes some tension between them. It’s easy to just create a scene at the end with Katara and Aang kissing, but it doesn’t feel like an authentic romance.

I have heard Maiko fans say that Zuko left his date after kissing Jin because he was thinking about Mai. I just have to laugh. Mai and Zuko have no chemistry, either. The show also goes out of its way to show how Zuko can NOT communicate with Mai. This was a relic of the original story, as well. He was supposed to feel empty and lonely in the Fire Nation, driving him to leave to join the Avatar. Zuko’s relationship with Mai came out of nowhere and had no real development. He ended up with Mai by default after Katara was awarded to Aang.

That’s also why they act so out-of-character in their relationships. Katara becomes so clingy and jealous in the comics. And we get bizarre lines from Zuko about “hating the world” with Mai. How romantic. Their relationships focus so much on kissing because there is nothing of substance to focus on. That’s why Maiko and Kataang are so…creepy to me.

Ghost of Christmas Whatever

Post 15x10. Wash is maybe starting something with Carolina, and an old friend shows up to make him think it through. Inspired by this fic by my good friend @angryredcoat.

It was a dream.

Wash would never be able to explain how he knew, exactly, it was a dream. His room looked like his room; when he looked down at his hands, they looked like his hands. It was just that he knew, and when he looked up from his hands, there was York, sitting at the end of his bed like no time had passed.

A Protip* I’ve Heard For College

*I have no idea if this is true so take this with a grain of salt. BUT:

I’ve heard that, the harder the professor is on you or your work, the more likely it is that they like your shit and want to see if they can push you. They want to see how you work under pressure. If they say your stuff is trash, they want you to impress them by going above and beyond.

If they call your work garbage, they’re not hating on you. If they truly think you won’t graduate with the stuff you’re putting out or you won’t succeed in that field, they’ll pull you into their private office and have a sit-down chat with you. They’ll advise you to switch majors or something in private.

So, stand up for your work! If your professor calls out one element of your work for not fitting or not matching the rest of the piece, explain to them with confidence why you did that thing the way you did. Most likely, they’re looking to see if you’re making conscious choices in your work instead of just haphazardly slapping something together and turning it in. 

Granted, there will be douche professors out there. They’re human beings. There are going to be rotten ones (and racist ones, misogynistic ones, perverted ones, homophobic ones, the list, sadly, goes on). But if you truly believe in your work, and you receive genuine compliments from other people on your work, and the only one who is really putting your work down is your professor, chances are that they like it and want to see how far you can go.

Of course, if they are being genuinely rude, talk to someone who can do something about it. If you’re not sure what their incentive is, I’m sure they won’t turn a private talk down. If anything, talking to them directly about it will show that you care about your work and their opinion.

Hello, I absolutely love your art and I wanna ask a question. Would it be wrong or uncomfortable you if I drew the Wandering Comics character in a "I ship them" way? I swear I mean no harm and just want to ask!!

Thank you for asking. Someone on twitter asked me that some days ago and I’m still sorting out my feelings about it tbh. But this is how I feel about it atm:

I know that once my work is out there I have no control of how people see it and how they feel about it. Shipping the characters isn’t too far fetched either, I understand. I’m not denying that a relationship between them could ever happen, Walker being ace and in a healing process doesn’t mean it couldn’t.

I can’t forbid you to see or depict my characters that way, I just don’t really get why you want to undo the whole point of my story like that.
It was a really important thing to me and the story to establish them as friends, not lovers, because that was what Walker and I needed.

I’m just sad that apparently I, as the storyteller, couldn’t make an impact deep enough for you to feel the same way. I’m sorry for that.

So in the end, its up to you.

Nevertheless, please show me whatever you’ll come up with! I’m excited.

I swear someone could come at a post of mine treating me without the tiniest grain of basic respect, and they would get outraged and receive support for this outrage from a vaaast portion of “exclusionists” if I in response told them off then immediately blocked. Which I mean I don’t do, but considering how often in this mess I get talked to and treated like a not-person, frequently it’d be very telling for someone to try and deny it’d be beyond 300% legit if I did.

So regarding ppl who come to my posts about blocking in general acting like I was clearly talking about respond+block, I guess I’ll just assume in the future that with respond+block, they mean someone doing the above. I mean if they can make assumptions I can make assumptions back? lol

Me: “hey ppl get to use the block function even if you call it a ‘discourse’ it doesn’t make them weak and you don’t get to shame them for it or get indignant they dared block u (and you most definitely don’t get to try to get around the block)“

Them: “clearly this is about respond+block lolol”

Me: “ummm why would u come at ppl’s post being extremely shitty to them in the first place?”

Talking past each other by making random assumptions, it’s fun! /s

What was my point? Oh yeah treating ppl with basic respect is probably a good idea, as is not randomly putting words in their mouth (or twisting them)

anonymous asked:

could you do headcanons of the boys getting jealous & protective of their girls? thanks, love!!❤️❤️

You know, @nothingtoseehere-move-along and @scarletbenoitkesley answered something like this very recently and I have to come up with the same conclusion that I don’t think the boys would really get jealous. I mean, sure they would get irked that some guy would try to hit on their ladies, but these boys know full well that the TLC girls love them and I just can’t see them being so insecure as to get jealous. 

Now, protective on the other hand…but even then, our boys know their girls can take care of themselves. Still, they do tend to worry.

  • If anyone out of the boys would get jealous, it would be Kai. I mean, we all knew how he hated Thorne just because he was so good looking, but can we blame the guy? Princes aren’t exactly known to be denied anything, but he soon learns that it is not a good idea to act on any jealous inclinations.
    • For one thing, Cinder does not have the patience time to stoke hurt male egos.
    • For another thing, Cinder is so bad at flirting and being flirted at that it’s actually funny someone tries to get fresh with her. 
      • More often than not, Kai ends up laughing at the pure hilarity of Cinder’s facial expressions. 
      • It is also important to note than 90% of the flirting Cinder gets is from Thorne and Kai has no worries about this. Sometimes he even encourages it until Cinder hits him with her metal hand. 
    • Speaking of Cinder’s metal hand, she also has a metal foot and leg and isn’t above using them in self-defense. She is much better equipped to defend herself against sleazy guys than Kai is. 
  • Being an alpha male, Wolf does not get threatened easily. It actually amuses him when someone can actually scrounge up the courage to flirt with Scarlet and when that happens, well, Wolf can’t deny the guy a moment in the spotlight.
    • Most of the time Wolf will just sit back and let the poor guy try to lay  some cheesy pick-up line on Scarlet. 
      • He will actually cringe when they eventually pull the, “Like the hair?” line and mentally count down the seconds until Scarlet actually threatens physical pain on the poor sap. 
    • If things get a little too out of hand though, all Wolf has to do is flex his muscles and let out a low growl and they are left alone in two seconds flat.
  • Thorne is so good natured that I just can’t see him getting jealous. The only time I can see him getting jealous about a guy talking to Cress is if he had better hair or a nicer smile than Thorne (which is a pretty difficult feat) or if, heaven forbid, he has a nicer ship. 
    • “Oh, so that’s your Neubla Class K13. It’s a shame their gravity thrusters are so unreliable.” 
    • Still, he insists that Cress get the whole Earthen experience which does mean getting hit on by guys from time to time. 
      • “Especially since you’re so beautiful.” 
    • But if anything, he’s super protective of Cress and is very attuned to her. One tiny twitch of an eyebrow will have him swooping in, wrapping an arm around her shoulder and leading her away from trouble.
      • “There you are darlin’. I’m starving, lets get something to eat.” 
  • Jacin is no stranger to guys looking at Winter, but he’s never gotten jealous over it because Winter only has eyes for him. He is, however, overly protective.
    • Usually, one of Jacin’s Death Glares™ can keep away guys in a ten foot radius. 
    • For the persistent few either too stupid or too foolish to stay away, Jacin always has a knife strapped to his belt and may or may not have pulled it on an eager fellow on more than one occasion. 
      • “Don’t worry, Winter. The guy was just asking about my knife and I pulled it out so he could get a better look.” 


This is a day late, but who cares.

By now you guys have probably already seen Exposing-5h’s “Orchestrated Ships: Camren” post. And it left many of you doubting camren, and believing that this was a hoax all along.

So, I’d like to do an honest review over the things “exposed” in the post, now this isn’t exactly hate towards their blog. (Even though you guys are really stubborn and insensitive) 

(I wont go through if camren is real in this post, because im proving the fact that that they’re not a hoax ship)

If you,Lilly and Victoria yourselves try to reach out to me in a bad manner, then don’t. That’s all I can say. Just don’t. But if you’re a bitch to me, i’m a bitch to you, and I have no personal beef towards you at the moment. 

Let’s keep it that way.

Anyways.. back to the point…

You guys talked about Camren being a staged and orchestrated act to attract a bigger fanbase so the girls could gain votes on the show, but… that’s not even partially true. The show X-factor itself is at times staged and orchestrated, some even claim they made poor Ally look like a diva on the show before Fifth Harmony was formed. Because as you know, to move on to another season of the show, they need viewers. More satisfied viewers, more seasons. More viewers, more money And those viewers crave something interesting.

Getting back on track…

Let’s start with BEFORE the girls were even formed.

Camila and Lauren talked about how they became friends even before they knew the other girls, don’t believe them?

(source of gif: @just-a-camren-shipper )

Those two girls holding hands are Camila and Lauren, yep.

Closer view:

“Oh it was planned.”

“People are drawn to that type of shit”

“The whole show is staged anyway.”

Tell me, are these reactions staged?:



This doesn’t necessarily have to mean anything sexual, but it’s more proof that they’re actually friends. They shared clothes even back then.

And they still did after!

Explain this?????????

For a bigger insight, watch this please: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQ57pHia5YM


I believe that when management saw that there were two girls close to each other, it clicked. They wanted to take advantage of a close friendship and try to make it succeed like the well-known ship of One Direction, Larry.

I, myself am not a Larry shipper. But anyone with eyes could see that it was real. I’m not going to go deeper into this Larry situation because i’m a camren blog, and this is a camren post. 

Again, when they saw how Louis and Harry (Larry) received attention from the group. They probably thought that if they did the same thing for Fifth Harmony, they’ll have the same amount of success One Direction had with Larry. So in some way, it was orchestrated, yet not orchestrated. It was taken advantage of.

I agree, Lauren was pissed about the concept of camren. And coincidentally, both her and Louis have denied those ships. While Harry and Camila stayed silent.

Another thing you said was that Camila and Lauren have always identified as straight, and you linked to where Lauren had said her sexual orientation. She was 13-14.

When the girls talked about their sexual orientation, they were both still young. How can someone that young realize what or who they like at that age? I’ve seen AND known people who have identified as straight before a certain age or before puberty. 

and I mean…

At the end of your post you said this:

“So let’s recap. Two girls were made to look closer for the sake of a show’s ratings. After the show and their contract with it ended, those two girls revealed that they were uncomfortable with the ship and grew extremely distant. Cut to a point where they never interact on their free time, and where they’ve now shaded each other on social media multiple times. Does this relationship sound so “real” now? “

1. The two girls were already close

2. They have not grown distant 

3. As a matter of fact, they do interact on free time

vvv just one out of many times they were interacting off camera ;)


Hey google, define… distant?

Wow, they are so distant

Shit, why are they so far away??

Originally posted by fforever-alonee

Sorry haha, but on a more serious note:

2012, great

2013, interacting just fine

2014, never been better

2015, nothing changed

2016, a bit more reserved publicly, not only camren though

Just a few more gifs for ya ;)

Do orchestrated ships share the same clothes?

Do orchestrated ships hang out off camera?

Do orchestrated ships visit each others houses?

Do orchestrated ships hang out with each others friends?

Visiting each others houses

Camila with Lauren and her friends

I don’t think that the fact that they visit each other often is in any way staged or orchestrated. In fact, Lauren had greeted the Cabello family this year and was more than excited to see Sofia. Yet we don’t actually know how often they visit each other anymore since all of Fifth Harmony’s accounts (but snapchat) are a bit more reserved.

Not only that, but they don’t interact publicly as much any more.

We don’t know the exact reason, but atleast we know they’re still close off camera.

Together off camera

I could show dozens of other times they have interacted so naturally, but they’re easy to find on your own.


Before deciding to make a post about how camila and lauren’s friendship/relationship whatever it is, is a hoax. Gather more information. Gather more receipts. Otherwise your theories would be easily debunked 

(note to the criticism i got for something i said:  You’re not  “born straight or gay”. Some people identify as straight before they start questioning at a certain age. Even the girls have said that they’ve reached a point where they started questioning their sexuality when they have always identified as straight. )
