anonymous asked:

About werewolves being monstrous in TW I’ll never understand why they did that. I mean majority of American supernatural shows I saw always painted supernatural beings as bad, dangerous things. Why all this violence? In Japanese and Korean shows/movies/fairytales I came across some of them are usually very much agreeable, intelligent beings. Some beings can’t be reasoned with and that’s fine sometimes it makes more interesting stories but why paint all of (1/2)

them bad? I wanted to watch TW because werewolf/supernatural elements and what I found? You put wolf in the name of the show but after watching hey wolves are bad. Our main character is a hero because he refuses to be one of them don’t worry though he’ll reap the benefits ;) Everytime I came across JD’s ‘it’s a show about werewolves’ excuse I want to apologise supernatural fantasy writers who took their stories seriously and put their hearts into them (2/2)

It’s really cheap storytelling, and the thing is we know that werewolves aren’t all bad in this world. Satori wasn’t, and clearly the Hales weren’t if they lived for so long peacefully in the area with nobody coming after them. 

But every wolf Scott meets has to reinforce his negative stereotype so he can tell himself that he’s better than they are. When, if you strip away the trauma from both Peter and Derek (and even Deucalion), there’s no indication that any of them began as monsters, however far they eventually ended up along the oath. In fact, all of the “monstrous” things they did were because hunters hit them first. 

And yet Scott never seems to realise that, does he? 

I won’t tolerate anti-Severus arguments that aren’t true.

He did NOT exchange the life of Harry and James for Lily.

He did NOT refuse to save James’ life. It was NOT possible to save James’ life. Please understand the fucking difference.

Also even if he refused to save James life 👏👌👍😎 then I’d be totally cool with that. Because as James’ victim he doesn’t owe his abuser shit. 

Why I have a problem with the exchange Harry and James for Lily argument.

To exchange means to give somebody something or someone in exchange for something or someone else. So to make an exchange it would mean giving Voldemort James and Harry in exchange for Lily’s life.

Please tell me where that happened lol?

Now you’re probably going to give me this quote here:  "I have ¨C I have asked him ¨C “

I have no idea what the C’s are. If some pro-Severus fan with the deathly hallows real-life copy can give me the replacement for the C I’d appreciate it.

But I’m going to take a guess that Severus never got to finish his sentence before Dumbledore interrupted him with "You disgust me.”

And a disclaimer: even if that was his full sentence obviously he didn’t actually intend to exchange Harry for Lily, otherwise he wouldn’t be having a chat with Dumbledore.

So if he completed his sentence:

Option a) …I have asked him if I can bring Harry to him so that he can spare Lily

Option b) …I have asked him to spare Lily. 

Option c) …I have asked him to spare Lily. But there was no way to convince him to spare James and Harry, which is why I’m here. Not just for Lily, but for their sake too.

Why option a is wrong:

If his intent was to bring Harry to Voldemort to spare Lily, why did he go to Dumbledore instead?

Why option b is wrong:

He was willing to do “anything” for Dumbledore to “hide them all”. Keep “her; them safe."He didn’t say hide just Lily lol. Fuck Harry and James. And he was willing to do "anything” heck if Dumbledore told him to get the cruciatus curse to death, he’d do it if that’s what it took to protect his abuser, his ex-best friend, and their child. 

Because when Severus told Dumbledore he was willing to do anything. He meant anything. 

Option c is correct and here are the quotes to prove it:

“Hide them all, then,” he croaked. “Keep her ¨C them ¨C safe. Please.”
“And what will you give me in return, Severus?”
“In ¨C in return?” Snape gaped at Dumbledore, and Harry expected him to protest, but after a long moment he said, “Anything.”

So please enough of this he exchanged Harry and James for Lily nonsense. He was willing to do ANYTHING to protect Harry and James for Lily. He event spent years of his life keeping Harry alive for Lily. 

Why I have a problem with he refused to save James and Harry argument.

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Voldemort says (I have used Incorrect quotes, but trust me that was the gist of the conversation.)

Voldemort: Lmfao the mudblood? He wanted to fuck her that was all. 

Harry: That’s what he wanted you to think you dipshit!

So let’s take a look at that conversation. Severus wanted Voldemort to think that he was only interested in fucking Lily.

I’m actually imagining this conversation.

Severus: My lord please spare Lily

Voldemort: Yo why?

Severus: -lying through his teeth-  I wanna rape her

Voldemort: -pats him on the back- I totally get it. S-s-she’s mudblood scum. Don’t worry I will spare her so you get that opportunity.

Severus’ imaginary conversation with Voldemort about James.

Severus: My lord please spare James

Voldemort: The man who bullied you, why?

Severus: -lies through his teeth- I’ve forgiven him and now value his life

Voldemort: You dare to value the life of someone who has thrice defied me S-s-severus? It is one thing to want to rape and subjugate a mudblood, but to actually want me to spare my enemy’s life because you care about his life, rather than the fact that HE IS MY ENEMY s-s-shows me you aren’t as loyal as I thought Severus. Avada kedavra.

Severus: -thinking- yep I’ll just keep quiet about James and go to Dumbledore instead.

Severus’ imaginary conversation with Voldemort about Harry.

Severus: Please my lord spare Harry 


Severus: My Lord … I know it sounds bad when you put it like that but -

Voldemort: Crucio!!!! ……. ……. ….. Avada kedavra!!!

Severus: -thinking- yep okay never mind. 

The only reason Lily’s sacrificial magic protected Harry was that Voldemort allowed her to live yet she still chose to die. If Severus said anything that could make Voldemort change his mind about allowing Lily to live, then Lily would not have been able to do the sacrificial magic and Harry would have died and … well, there would be no Harry Potter. 


The books would have different names:

Book 1) Voldemort and the stone that made him look hot again

Book 2) Voldemort and his giant fucking snake

Book 3) Voldemort and killing Sirius Black for wasting his time.

Book 4) Voldemort celebrates his birthday at the Quidditch world cup

Book 5) Voldemort battles Dumbledore

Book 6) Voldemort tries to kill Dumbledore using Draco.

Book 7) Voldemort and his subjugation over muggles and mudbloods 

(it’s Voldemort’s perspective. He ain’t going to refer to muggle-borns as muggle-borns, hence why I used the word mudblood.)

You can hate Severus as much as you like. Just make sure you hate him for things that actually happened. And not a bunch of bs you’ve created in your heads. Hate him or dislike him for being a bully. Hate him or dislike him for even joining a group that wanted to kill muggles and muggle-borns, etc.

Just don’t hate or dislike him for the bullshit you’ve made up in your heads. Or canon that you’ve twisted or misrepresented. 

y’all on anon when a black mod makes a mistake/says something wrong: “cancel mod x!” “delete them from the blog!” “mod x you’re a piece of shit!” “mod x is so gross”

y’all on anon when a non-black mod makes a mistake/says something wrong: hey mod x could you please retract what you said i’m sorry for the bother but what you said might be hurtful :)

y’all on anon when you feel entitled to us brown people kissing your white asses like the mules we are: hm sweetie :) did you know that WHITE STRAIGHT FURRIES are OPRESSED because THEY PUT ON ANIMAL CUSTOMES :) why don’t you go DIE on a DITCH #furryphobia.

by which I mean that some of you are a bunch of self-entitled asses who won’t even show your faces and expect us to solve your problems and keep up with you twisting our words and making shit up about what we say without saying a beep when you all don’t even have the decency of not being antiblack assholes.

and then you are like “aw but why was mod x so mean to me when i called them a fascist bitch after not reading their post :(”. I’m not going to say that we don’t make mistakes - all of us have, (AND THEN YOU CRITICIZE US FOR APOLOGISING ABOUT THAT), but so do you, and if you deserve respect then so do we

As opposed to your apparent belief, we don’t actually owe you guys anything (besides respect, when you give it to us), we’re here because we want to and we want to do good, and really? it feels like you just wanna sit down and discourse™ for the sake of it and because you feel like getting emotional labor and a Reaction out of us. Like you don’t actually care about the issues we discuss, you just want to be on the highest moral ground, as if such a thing even exists, and as if that in itself wasn’t bad - performative allyship for the sake of looking good.

My god, you take us for a bunch of naive assholes, do you think we don’t see through your shit?

Sir, it looks like Robin and/or Corrin has been giving Kiran pairing up advice. I saw Kiran pairing up people who are familiar with each other as well as people who are at war with each other in their own timelines, and pairing up with their own ancestors. How is everyone taking this and did Kiran pair you up with anyone? I also noticed that Kiran is getting a little too familiar with you, if you know what I mean....

“Yes, good stranger… *sigh* I know. If Robin’s bad habit of unusual matchmaking wasn’t bad enough, Kiran seems to have picked up Corrin’s affinity for touching people’s faces. Between that and being partnered up with Heroes I might normally never associate with, it is all rather irksome.”

“Nevertheless, the benefits do seem to be worth it to some small extent. Units that have bonded with one another tend to perform better on the battlefield together, and whichever Hero is the subject of our summoner’s attention gets a rather generous boost in power. In dire situations, these small boosts can make or break a potential victory.”

“…All this said, I should certainly hope that no one has the misfortune of pairing up with General Valter. That fellow is every bit as unsettling to be around as the old Magvellean stories made of him, and – if his total insanity wasn’t plain enough – his appearance in shambles. The man looks as greasy and unpleasant as a sewer rat trapped at the bottom of a lard barrel… Why again did Kiran recruit him?”

The Arkansas Sleep Experiments

by reddit user nazisharks

To Those Who Sleep

This happened a few years ago. You may have heard rumors if you’re on campus. Some even circulated online. Nobody knew what really happened. Because I’m the only one who knows and I kept quiet. For a multitude of reasons. None of them matter now. Here’s what really happened.

The four of us were handpicked for this experiment by Prof. Richardson because we’d all studied under him, worked under him, and, as much as anyone can, earned his confidence.

He said this one was different. We had to keep it quiet. He wanted to keep details to a minimum. All he would tell us before going in was that he required a month of our lives and that if he succeeded sleep would never again be a necessity.

“Potter, what is that?” Draco asks with urgency, his chest constricting in pain as he catches a glimpse of something dark coiling up Harry’s forearm.

Harry shoves his sleeve down and jumps up to meet Draco, his wand clattering to the floor. “Nothing. How did you find – “

“Show me.”

“I don’t – “

“Show me. Now.” Draco demands. He can’t believe this is happening. As if it isn’t horrible enough seeing it on his own arm every day.

Harry pulls up his sleeve slowly to reveal it – The Dark Mark – etched into his flesh. Draco holds back a gag.

“It’s not what you think,” Harry says.

Draco’s eyes dart between the mark and Harry’s face. “It’s – how did – why?”

“I wanted to practice removing it,” Harry says slowly, his meaning clear. It only makes Draco angrier.

“So you gave yourself a Dark Mark? You reckless idiot. What if you can’t remove it? Did you even think about that before you – “ Draco stops himself. Of course he didn’t. He’s Harry fucking Potter. Draco sighs and tries to calm himself. He’s not responsible for Harry’s idiotic antics. “How did you even manage to replicate it?” He asks, his voice measured.

Harry smiles weakly. “Well, a fragment of Voldemort’s soul was inside me for most of my life and his magic left a pretty big trace. I just… accessed it.”

Once again Draco holds back a gag. The thought of Voldemort’s magic, so dark, so cruel, inside of Harry Potter, the Gryffindor Saint, is too much. It’s horrifying.

Draco takes a breath and asks Harry the question he already knows the answer to: “Why do you need to know how to remove a Dark Mark?” He needs to hear the idiot say it.

Sure enough: “So I can remove yours.”

Draco grits his teeth. He’s furious that Harry has put himself in danger for him. Again. “You don’t owe me anything, Potter.”

“I know,” Harry says. But he doesn’t.

“You can’t just go around saving people all the time!” Draco’s raised voice echoes throughout the room.

“Why not?”

“Not everyone wants to be saved,” Draco points out. He doesn’t want Harry risking anything for him. How could he ask that of anyone, after all that he’s done?

“You don’t want the mark removed?” Harry questions, his eyes falling down to Draco’s left arm.

Draco’s mark is covered but he tugs on his sleeve regardless. “It reminds me of who I am.”

Harry frowns. “That’s exactly why you need it removed. That’s not who you are, Draco.”

Draco blanches, surprised at the use of his first name and Harry quickly corrects himself. “I mean Malfoy.”

Draco lets his eyes fall back down to Harry’s mark, taking in the harsh lines of the coiling snake and skull, and the red raw skin beneath. He shudders. “Looks like you haven’t had much success anyway,” he says as casually as he can manage. But inside, his heart is tight. Because now Harry will have to live with the Dark Mark the rest of his life. Just like Draco, he’ll be forced to carry the weight of the inescapable dark magic within his skin, forced to feel it crawling through his veins, through his every spell, with no relief and no hope of salvation.

“I’m getting close. Before you came in, I could feel it moving.” Harry retrieves his wand from the floor and points it at his Dark Mark, eyebrows tightening in concentration.

“Go on, then. No other Wizard has been able to do it, but I’m sure even a Dark Mark will be no match for the great Harry Pot – oh.” Draco’s knees buckle. “Oh.”

Against all logic, Harry removes the Dark Mark as if it is nothing more than a muggle tattoo. The head of the snake recoils into a rapidly shrinking skull until all that is left is smooth, untainted skin.

Malfoy yanks up his sleeve and holds out his arm to Harry. Despite all his protesting, he wants to be saved. More than anything.

Harry’s hand wraps under Draco’s arm holding it in place and he raises his wand. Draco screws up his eyes in anticipation - he cannot bear to witness the removal in case it doesn’t work properly. What if his Dark Mark is worse than Harry’s, having come from Voldemort himself? What if – Oh.

Draco doesn’t need to see it happen because he feels it. He feels the darkness extracted from his body, feels strength returning to his limbs. And he feels light. Lighter than he can ever remember. As if he might just float away. He opens his eyes and stares down at his clear, unmarked skin.

There’s a sense of twisted deja vu when Draco looks up from his arm. He remembers looking up into Voldemort’s eyes after he was given the mark, and feeling colder than he’s ever felt before. But now when he looks up into his saviour’s eyes, into Harry Potter eyes, it’s warmth he feels, from the smooth skin on his forearm to the centre of his heart.

He blinks back his tears. “Thank you.” They’re the same words he was forced to say to Voldemort but their meaning couldn’t be any more different this time. Voldemort had stolen his life, and Harry Potter had just restored it.

But Why Does No One Talk About Pining Shiro?

I have a bone to pick with the Sheith fandom. Everywhere in this fandom I see Keith freaking out about Shiro, which I will admit is completely canon. But you know what else is canon?

Shiro’s bias for Keith.

I know that it’s seems subtle, but it’s not at the same time. I rewatched Voltron Season 1 and 2 before Season 3 because I noticed that I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to Shiro the first time around. A lot of his lines are pretty generic-leader-type, but during me rewatch, I noticed that his character cues weren’t. So, without further ado, here begins my long meta post about how Shiro is pining after Keith.

Prompts: @yxxn-g1
Author: @queenofthyme

There may have been fourteen players on the field but Draco only had eyes for one. Fast, lean, focused, Potter was like a bullet the way he shot across the Quidditch pitch. The other seeker didn’t stand a chance. 

“No wonder you didn’t want me to come,” Blaise said from beside Draco, breaking him from his trance.

It was true – he didn’t want Blaise to come. Some of the eighth years had set up their own Quidditch club. Draco wasn’t a part of it, of course, but that didn’t mean he didn’t wake up ridiculously early every morning so he could watch them, well, Potter, play.

Draco, of course – he had the worst luck, made the mistake of stepping on that creaking floorboard by Blaise’s bed – he usually avoided it but the early starts had started to make his brain a little foggy.

Blaise hadn’t been too happy at being awoken before the sun itself, but the more Draco pushed for him to go back to sleep, the more curious he had become. In the end, he insisted Draco take him with him.

Draco forced his eyes to land on another player before replying. "What do you mean by that?“

Blaise snorted. "Come on, Draco, it’s pretty obvious why you’re here.”

Draco kept his face straight ahead, avoiding Blaise’s knowing eyes. “I enjoy Quidditch.”

“Maybe you enjoy it a little too much.”

Draco averted his eyes as Potter flew into his line of vision. That was hardly his fault. He turned to Blaise. “I don’t know what you mean.”

Blaise smirked. “I think you know exactly what I mean.” Blaise jerked his head out to the field. “Heads up, lover boy.”

Draco turned back to find Potter hurtling towards them, the snitch at the edge of the pitch where they sat in the stands. With his Quidditch robes flying behind him and a fierce determination in his eyes, Potter looked like a dream. In fact, Draco had had this very dream, maybe with a few minor adjustments to the rest of Potter’s clothing. (What clothing?)

Potter’s hand closed around the snitch – close enough that Draco could have leaned forward and snatched it up himself – and a low hissing sound escaped his mouth. Draco felt the sound in his entire body.

Potter twisted his broom with ease, avoiding impact with the stand, and flew back to his team, his hand raised high, showing off his win.

Draco slumped back – he had somehow found himself at the very tip of his seat, leaning into the pitch. His heart pounded against his chest, as if it wished to escape.

“What was that?” Blaise asked.

Draco waved a hand dismissively, focusing on calming his heartbeat. “It’s parseltongue. Potter use to – does speak it.”

“That’s not what I –“ Blaise paused. His voice grew mocking. “Oh no.”

Draco looked over to Blaise, alarmed. “What?”

Blaise smiled – it stretched over his face slowly. “You liked that, didn’t you?”

“No, I didn’t!” Draco crossed his legs nervously. He immediately regretted it when Blaise’s eyes were drawn to the action, widening at the implication.

“You did!” Blaise clapped his hands together. He was enjoying this. “You pervert! Potter’s snake tongue has got you all hot and bothered.”

“You’re being ridiculous,” Draco insisted. “Why would – “ Draco spotted Potter flying back up to the stand and his voice faltered. The snitch was nowhere to be seen.

Blaise leaned into Draco to whisper: “Better keep your legs crossed.”

Draco blushed. “I AM NOT HA - Potter!” Draco yelled as Potter approached. “Good catch.” Great form. Amazing body.

Potter dismounted his broom, considerably less gracefully then he flew. “Thanks, Malfoy” he said, one hand coming up to rub the back of his neck. “I didn’t know you were - I mean, did you want to play? Is that why you’re here? Because I can – “

“I’m fine,” Draco interrupted. He didn’t fancy making a fool of himself.

“Draco prefers to watch,” Blaise added. Draco shot him a murderous look. Blaise. Was. Dead.

Luckily, Potter didn’t catch on to the meaning. He shuffled on the spot. “Oh, okay then. If you change your mind, let – “

“Why do you - when you - why do you do that?” Draco blurted out before Potter could leave.

Potter tilted his head, staring at Draco intently with puckered eyebrows, confusion clear on his face.

“He means why do you speaks parseltongue when you catch the snitch,” Blaise translated.

Potter’s face relaxed; he laughed sheepishly. “You heard that? It’s just something that happens when I’m not concentrating on what I’m saying.” Potter paused to think about it. “You know, when I’m reacting instinctively.”

“Reacting instinctively hmm?” Blaise repeated, his whole face alight. “That must happen quite a bit huh, Potter?” Blaise said with a painfully obvious wink, nudging Draco as he did.

“Yeah, actually, it’s – “ Blaise’s implication must have hit Potter a second too late. He fumbled over his words. “What are you - Oh I didn’t mean - that’s not - I mean, you don’t need to - um.” Potter closed his mouth firmly, a blush creeping over his cheeks. Draco could see the cogs in Potter’s mind working overtime, trying to find an escape. Draco felt quite the same way. Blaise was worse than dead.

“I should get back to the team,” Potter said, after a telling pause, mounting his broom.

“Bye, Potter,” Blaise said sweetly. “Draco looks forward to the opportunity to hear your parseltongue once more.”

Potter hissed again, low and breathy. Draco didn’t require a translation to know Potter was swearing.

“He means during Quidditch,” Draco quickly covered up, crossing his legs tighter and internally vowing to destroy Blaise for the most mortifying experience of his life.

“No I – “

Draco clapped a hand over Blaise’s mouth before he could ruin Draco’s day further. Draco tried to smile at Potter, his face burning.

“I’ll see you tomorrow, then,” Potter said, his face just as aflame as Draco’s. “Our next Quidditch meet,” he explained when Draco remained silent.
