Untitled by twofriesshortofhomicide (Dean and reader text back and forth, leading to phone sex and then real sex) ((Are we sensing that Allie found a new blog this week and read thru the entire master list at once?? Sorry. I actually held back because there are several more that I wanted to post. Go check out the master list tho.)
Quiet by ilostmyshoe-79 (Reader has to be quiet for Sam since Dean is asleep the next bed over. I somewhat recently decided that the whole having-sex-while-someone-else-is-in-the-room-asleep thing kind of eeks me out, but I wanted to have at least a little bit of Sam smut on the list this week. )
I’ve had to resort to drastic measures because Jess ripped my heart out and stomped on it, then proceeded to defecate on its pulverized remains with Wish You Were Here. I was lured in with the promise of smut (there’s definitely smut) but my body was not ready for the feels. Oh, and then she went and wrote a prequel, which was also a meat grinder for the feels. From now on, smut timeout is where smut writers will be sent when they are bad- aka when I don’t get my way and I’m pouting about it. Let’s hope I don’t have to use it most Hump days, JESS.
Alright, that’s it for this week. Until next Wednesday, Happy Humping!!!
I’ve been seeing a bit of Mad Max on my dash today.
Which led me to think this:
We’ve been talking a lot about how important it is that Furiosa isn’t sexualized. Which is very important. It was great to see a female character kicking butt and being just as dirty as the male characters.
But I haven’t seen as much talk about Furiosa’s disability. She’s missing a good part of her left arm. She uses a prosthetic, but it’s clearly uncomfortable - she takes it off sometimes, and is caught without it at least once. It’s pretty primitive because, you know, after the apocalypse and all.
And as vital as her treatment as a woman who is not sexualized is, the treatment of her disability is also important.
Fiction tends to treat disability in one of 3 ways:
1. Ignore it completely. Don’t have disabled characters. Pretend it doesn’t exist. Or (Hawkeye in Avengers comes to mind, where we might occasionally notice he’s wearing a hearing aid) have a disabled character, but the disability doesn’t affect anything.
2. The cure narrative. Where the disabled character spends all of his or her time looking for a cure or worse their “caregiver” spends all of their time looking for a cure, where whether the cure is found or not, the character is reduced to a problem that needs to be solved. I’ve talked about this and why it’s a problem before.
3. Romanticization. I’ve been maybe slightly guilty of this myself in Transpecial, but this is when the disabled person, because they’re disabled, can do something nobody else can.
3 isn’t as bad as 1 or 2, because we all want to see people like us doing cool stuff, but it can show a lack of understanding when taken too far.
Furiosa’s disability isn’t treated in any of these three ways.
1. The prosthetic is annoying and uncomfortable. She ends up having to fight without it, which causes problems. Also, it’s a very visible disability. Any time she’s on screen, you see either the prosthetic or the stump. It’s in your face. You can’t ignore it and what it says about the world. At the same time, there’s no sob story. We don’t know how she lost part of her arm. We can speculate - I’m personally assuming some kind of machinery-related accident - but we’re never told.
2. There’s no cure. There isn’t a perfect Luke Skywalker-style prosthesis waiting for her in the no longer extant Green Place. End of the movie, she’s still disabled.
3. She kicks butt despite it, not because of it. She manages just as well as somebody with two hands…until she doesn’t. She doesn’t pull a battery out of it to save the day, ahem Luke Skywalker, ahem.
And there’s something else.
In the US right now we have a lot of disabled veterans with prosthetics. Some of them are female. The kind of war we’ve been fighting leads to people getting in the way of smaller explosions that cause these kinds of injuries.
So, not only do we have a disabled character who is not ignored and tokened, romanticized or forced into the cure narrative, we have one that reminds us of this particular cost of war.
Hello everyone! I recently reached 200+ followers (how?!?! HOW?!?! i don’t know) Thank you guys so much for choosing to follow a messy little blog like mine :-)
There are so so many great blogs and people that I have talked to and who I enjoy seeing on my dash and I appreciate the community that you guys have made here (especially for GOT7 fans) I’m glad I have a place to come and scream about share GOT7 content with since I don’t have any other place really. Since I follow almost 300 blogs (!!!) I will try to only list a few. I apologize if I miss anyone, I really love all the blogs I follow because they all add to this lovely community :)
Hiii guys!! :) I’ve been planning to make one of these for ages but I always forgot and never got the chance to. But since it’s holidays and I just got off my short hiatus I think it’s time to finally post one! :)
I was inactive/on hiatus for a few months and a lot of you has changed your URLs and even names lol so it was quite hard to find you. But I did my best and scrolled through my tag, ask and everything so I hope I didn’t miss anyone^^ This is my first follow forever so I’m sorry if it’s still a bit messy :/
oh and ignore the edit please it was inspired (?) by haroldhonestly (angelfaceharry)’s follow forever edit but i suck and screwed up lol sorry (oh, and i hope you don’t mind me making something that is similar with your edit :/)
bolded urls -> people that i consider as friends italicized urls -> favorites

Sometime in the last 24 hours, fan artist euclase dropped off Tumblr and DeviantArt.
You’ve probably seen euclase’s stuff in at least one fandom, but here are a handful of examples:
Euclase is one of those people who seems, though no apparent individual fault beyond being extraordinarily talented, to be a lightning rod for anonymous viciousness. For example:
And, as a result, this is what’s happening over on this artist’s Tumblr now:
To euclase: I’m sorry this happened to you. I don’t understand why people do this. I have friends who go through the same thing, and it both breaks my heart and makes me fucking burn every time because it’s so fucking pointless. I hope that wherever you are, that you are okay. Your work is beautiful, and I saw you be kind to a lot of people before you left. I will miss your presence on my dash, and in my fandoms.
To the people who did this: I want to say a lot of angry things. A lot of “come over here and try that shit” kind of things. But what I really want, at the end of the day, is for you to get a taste of perspective. I want you to feel, acutely, the pain you caused by being an anonymous bag of dicks on the internet. I want you to feel it over a thing you love, in an area of your life where you need and want affirmation. I want it to hurt so bad that you lock yourself in the bathroom at work and cry, that you lose sleep for months, that you look in the mirror and wonder what you ever did. And I want you suffer terribly until you fucking learn from it, however long that takes.
I am cursing you motherfuckers because people who hurt other people casually and easily deserve to bleed on their own blades and drink their own poison and have every mirror laugh at their sorry fucking faces.
As much as I love how peaceful and organized my dash is and how there is an extreme lack of self-reblogging I do miss Taylor being on here and I know she has a tour to plan and rehearse and everything so of course she wouldn’t even be on here a lot anyway but it felt special that she actually took the time out of her day to just chill with us here I hope she comes back that was really cool of her
I need to refresh my dash a little :) Reblog this is you post any of the following: Sherlock Supernatural Merlin Doctor Who Hannibal Anything Disney Anything marvel LOTR/The Hobbit GoT Tom Hiddleston J2M Martin Freeman I’m sure I’m missing like a lot but that’s just what’s off the top of my head
Thanks a bunch guys :) ps. any follows if appreciated I will 100% follow you back

Tiny 6x07 fix it!fic, because I couldn’t leave Klaine’s story on that evil cliffhanger for an entire week. Spoilers for 6x07 “Transitioning” and brief mentions of Kurt/Walter and Blaine/Dave. Title/musical inspiration comes from this. 1.3K [AO3]
“Hurry up, Rachel. We’re going to miss our reservation at Breadstix!” Kurt called across the parking lot as Rachel dashed out the front door of McKinley.
“I’m coming, I’m coming,” she
yelled, jogging over to Walter’s BMW as she struggled to button up
her coat against the brisk wind. “Geez, it’s freezing out,”
Rachel commented as she slid into the backseat next to Sam.
“I can keep you warm,” Sam offered,
sliding an arm around her shoulders. Rachel giggled, leaning
gratefully into his embrace.
“What did Blaine need, Rachel?”
Kurt asked, trying for casual.
“Oh, I have no idea, he said he forgot what he needed to tell me.”
