i need to know more about these two

ree-fireparrot  asked:

So I am a straight(ish) girl who was thinking about writing a story about two women in love in a fantasy setting. Obviously I need to do some research first (for believability and sensitivity, and to make sure it appeals to wlw) but where do I even start? I don't even know what questions to ask even if I find a wlw willing to help other than "What do you want to see more of" and "What should I avoid".

Cont: To clarify on my last question - I mean appeals to wlw as opposed to straight men for example, not “I’m trying to get wlw to give me popularity/money.” I think if you write a marginalized character you should keep that group in mind first and foremost.

Writing any sort of character that differs from you in a significant way requires:

  • Listening to firsthand experiences from that kind of person
  • Listening to more firsthand experiences from that kind of person
  • Even more listening
  • Recognizing that you probably just heard dozens of different experiences, some of them contradictory
  • Now you can ask some questions
  • Even more listening

It’s not about any specific traits to include or not include. I can’t give you a list of this or that and send you on your way. I have one queer outlook on life. Even my own queer stories get ire from queer people sometimes. I do my own homework when depicting a different type of queer person from myself.

Then it requires:

  • Trial and error
  • Screwing up a lot
  • Being open to criticism from the people you’re depicting without taking it personally
  • Recognizing you will never be the best person to tell this story
  • Remembering that your ego is less important than the feelings of the people you’re trying to represent
  • Writing them anyway, even though you won’t be the best at it. Be the best you can be.
  • Being humble.

Ultimately remember that this isn’t about you. You’re writing about this kind of person because these kinds of people exist. Not for personal praise, not for points, not for money. This is a responsibility, this is a privilege to tell someone else’s story. If you can’t be understanding and set your ego aside, then you’re not someone who gets to tell it.

I love these two and I think I talked about how much I love them for like 5 hours straight yesterday, which is probably a new record

Anyway Blurr being the more dominant one in the relationship is smth there definitely needs to be more of. Blurr passive aggressively flirting and Shockwave not knowing what to do with himself is A+ good shit

“I needed to apologize, coach… I let you down so bad, and your son too.” Nate still couldn’t shake off the guilt so he went to talk to Keith.

“Boy, I know about the spell,” he nodded. “I only wonder… what happened between you two last night?”

“I told him how I feel,” Nate lowered his eyes, a bit afraid of Keith’s reaction. “Then the spell reached to me again in the morning and I started spitting out awful things. He snapped of course.”

“Honestly I had some guesses that you’re more than just friends with him. But still it’s quite a surprise,” Keith said. “Tobias is a person who would keep all his feelings to himself. Or if share, then with either Nicole or Wendy.”

“We haven’t even had a chance,” the least of all Nate wanted to cry in front of his coach.

“Hey, I always taught you not to be a whiner, so heads up. He said he’s going to call very soon so we can only hope. And yeah… you can be back to sports whenever you want. You can even go upstairs and exercise at our gym right now, to shake off the pain.”

“Thank you so much, Mr. Fletcher. I didn’t expect from you to be this nice to me. After all, I’m responsible for Tobias being gone.”

“You thought I’m some kind of a monster?” Keith smiled, then patted him on the shoulder. “And it’s not your fault, you didn’t choose to be cursed. Enough talks, go exercise. It always helps.”

I get this is an old gay man passion project most likely and they can never shut the fuck up about these two amazing actresses who deserve more than their caricatures of them as camp divas but this is literally going to introduce youth to them in the worst way possible like how many more Bette or Joan jokes need to be made ? Literally none… and he could be doing it seriously not as a joke but literally every single thing he does is a joke because he’s a hack!!! He doesn’t know how to do anything with the least bit of nuance or restraint which I don’t mind (obviously) but he lacks depth or perception or any real sense of heart too which is essential if you’re gonna go over the top. Like I just know this is gonna be some gay in-joke like all the white queens who cackle in the balcony of the Castro theater during Noir festivals doing poppers and coke during intermission.

kumi-strife  asked:

I'm curious about what that Devimega is, please explain :3

AYE !!! (i’m so attached to this au because of reasons i don’t know)

So DeviMega. Devimega is basically a combination of the two words “devil” and “megami”. A megami basically means “goddess”. In the original au, the “megami” resides in a pond/lake. The original au was really vague about how it works which leaves room for many variations.

Ok so now we get to the good part; the plinami version of this au which basically screams polar opposites (and who are more opposites than plinami)

Yuri - he is the “megami”, i know he’s basically like the devil BUT HEAR ME OUT. Yuri is beautiful, no doubt, I feel like he would often be mistaken as a woman therefore getting the term “megami” or “goddess”. He resides in a holy lake and he cannot leave it because without the lake, he is nothing.

Minami - he’s the devil, agaIN HEAR ME OUT ON THIS. It’s not impossible, Minami uses his charm to captivate people and get what he wants. Anything holy burns him, like really bad and if he harbors feelings for a holy being, he will rot from the inside out and die.

Bonus thing:

IF AND ONLY IF minami dies, he will get reincarnated as an archangel, that sounds good right? Because he and yuri will have no more complications.

Wrong

Archangels stay in heaven and Yuri is trapped in his pond.

Things I need from YOI season 2:
  • The second half of “History Maker” used in the OP
  • Yuri and Victor EXPLICITLY defining the relationship with one another
  • Yuuri moving into Victor’s apartment (to Yurio’s disgust)
  • More Victuri fluff and dates including Victor taking Yuuri sightseeing
  • BETTER. COMMUNICATION. BETWEEN. YUURI. AND. VICTOR.
  • literally ANYTHING about Victor’s past aside from skating
  • Victor and Yuuri being annoyingly adorable and sweet to each other during practice
  • Yakov/Yuri/Georgi/Mila/the entire Russian skating club being fed up with how cute those two are
  • Yakov having to forcibly separate Yuuri and Victor during practice
  • Otabek surprise visiting Yuri in Russia
  • Domestic Victuuri including (healthy) spats about household chores and duties
  • Victor and Yuuri making wagers on said chores during competitions
  • Yurio going through puberty (growth spurt, voice breaking, uncontrollable eating, being even more grumpy than usual)
  • Another pair skate
  • Maccachin in general, being adorable and just receiving all the love
  • VICTUURI
  • “the podium family” dominating on the ice
  • Phichit on ice
  • Victuuri cuddles and sleeping together (macca squeezes in between them)
  • A beautiful wedding after Yuuri wins gold (which he will ofc)
  • Yuuri gaining a stronger sense of self
  • Yuuri’s hair progressively getting longer each episode (until it’s past his shoulders at least??)
  • Yuuri learning many Russian words and phrases(especially ones in the bedroom ;))
  • More ~beautiful costumes~ and ~beautiful choreography~
  • A cameo from our queen, Evgenia Medvedeva
  • The other version of “You Only Live Once” as the ED

Edit:

  • Yuri and Beka getting super close (as friends first before anything else)
  • JJ still getting married even though he didn’t win a grand slam
  • Victor and Yuuri just whole-heartedly, uncontrollably laughing together
  • Yuuri calling Victor his fiance in casual conversation

I AM SO GREEDY WOW. I WANT TO CROSS AS MANY THINGS OFF THIS LIST AS I CAN DURING SEASON 2!!! ADD WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE MOST I NEEEEED MORE

“The odd thing is, Harry,“ he said softly, "that it may not have meant you at all. Sibyll’s prophecy could have applied to two wizard boys, both born at the end of July that year, both of whom had parents in the Order of the Phoenix, both sets of parents having narrowly escaped Voldemort three times. One, of course, was you. The other was Neville Longbottom.

8

And all I was supposed to feel was grateful. I was supposed to just shut up and be thankful that I had these great parents who wanted me when my birth parents didn’t. But the truth is you never wanted me, either. What are you talking about? I was a replacement for your dead baby. That’s all I’ve ever been.  You got it all wrong, son.  No, I’ve spent my life striving for perfection, and you know why, Dad? ‘Cause I live in fear. That if I let up for a moment, I will remember that I am unwanted.

  • Cas: DEAN?
  • Dean: yeah?
  • Cas: where is my angel blade?
  • Dean: what?
  • Cas: WHERE. IS. MY. ANGEL BLADE?
  • Dean: I, uh, put it away.
  • Cas: WHERE?
  • Dean: WHY DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?
  • Cas: I NEED IT!
  • Dean: UH UH. DON'T YOU THINK ABOUT RUNNING OFF AND DOING NO-DARING-SHIT. WE'VE BEEN PLANNING THIS DINNER FOR TWO MONTHS!
  • Cas: HEAVEN IS IN DANGER!
  • Dean: MY EVENING IS IN DANGER!
  • Cas: YOU TELL ME WHERE MY ANGEL BLADE IS, HUMAN! WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE GREATER GOOD!
  • Dean: greater good? I am your HUSBAND. I AM THE GREATEST GOOD YOU ARE EVER GONNA GET.

please write more lgbt characters in books that aren’t specifically about sexuality (although we need more of those, too).

i just want to be able to pick up a book and see two girls falling in love while trying to battle a corrupt government, while trying to defeat this one evil dude, while time travelling. i don’t want ‘lgbt’ to be a genre of its own, you know? i want genre books with main characters who just happen to be lgbt. i want this so much. 

how much do I gotta pay dreamworks to give us an episode focusing on hunk’s back story/family history  

anonymous asked:

bless you for your voltron headcanons they make my life so much happier, esp. the lance & keith ones

here’s some more buddy

  • in pidge’s words: “you two are a positive feedback loop of bad ideas”
    • both are (semi)reasonable people independently but something about the presence of the other just makes half their brain cells die off lol
    • all one of them has to do is say “i bet i can….” or “what are you scared” and suddenly common sense takes a fucking vacation
  • “lance we need to talk” “okay I don’t know what you heard but whatever it is keith started it”
  • they’re the cause of 68% of Shiro’s headaches
  • *the two of them have a Moment* keith: “so are you gonna remember this one or”
  • lance keeps a passive aggressive little bucket list of movies and shows keith has to watch when they get back to earth
    • pretends it’s to catch keith up with the times but really he’s just mad that keith doesn’t get his references
    • but also keith hasn’t seen lilo and stitch???? what the fucking fuck????? what the fu
  • keith likes to pretend he’s above lance’s shit but he’s actually equally as petty
  • keith: *makes joke* lance, throwing himself on hunk: “our little boy’s just. growing up so fast” "why are you like this”
  • lance can spot keith’s mullet literally anywhere. like, even in a huge crowd
  • *dinkleburg voice* “keith”
  • lance: *comes up with a plan and tries to explain it to keith* keith, literally two seconds later: “oh hey wait why don’t we do [insert lance’s plan but in slightly different terms here]”
    • lance: *looks into the camera like he’s on the office*

there’s a very obvious difference in bitty’s height in these two panels and i need to know more about zimbits hugging like

does bitty jump at jack? does jack just catch him like the 110% he is? or does jack lean down and pick itty bitty up off the ground? look at bitty’s little socked foot in the corner he kicks his legs back and if that isn’t the cutest darn thing

there are so many ways this hug can play out and i need answers

Okay, so hear me out: Chowder signs with the Las Vegas Aces his senior year at Samwell:

  • (Okay fair warning I’m not a hockey fan I’m a baseball person so my perception of how signings and trading happens is largely dominating by that so let me know if I’m glaringly wrong anywhere and also this got really long whoops)
  • Chowder hadn’t really thought too much about the NHL until his junior year, when Jack pulls him aside after the first game he had been able to get away from Providence to see
  • Jack says “there’s at least two teams with scouts in the stands looking at you thinking about prospect camp spots for the summer, so if you need advice - or an agent - let me know and at the very least I can put you in touch with my dad”.
  • Then Chowder starts thinking about it. Like, a lot.

The more I think about it the more I want to see Matteusz and Miss Quill become friends. For two reasons.

1. We need more Matteusz. He is the character we know the least about.

2. There needs to be someone in the show that acknowledges Miss Quill is lonely and suffering, and since Charlie doesn’t seem to give two shits, Matteusz is in the best position to be that person.

Like imagine all the possibilities.

Things like…

The first time Charlie leaves them alone together and Quill doesn’t even seem to notice he’s there until he turns on the TV or gets something out of the microwave.

“You mean you still live here when his royal pain in my ass isn’t here?”

“Yes, I still live here when Charlie goes to the shop to buy milk.”

“Hmm.”

Or…

Caffiene deprived Quill coming into the kitchen in the morning and just stopping because what is this human doing in her house again? And before she can even try and activate her brain enough to snark, he hands her a cup of coffee. He’s already nursing his own. There’s a look in his eye like he needs the coffee and the quiet as bad as she does so she accepts it as a kind of temporary truce.

Both of them glare (Matteusz more a tired squint) when Charlie trots down the stairs already fuctioning and talking about plans for the day.

Just the two of them falling into this domestic pattern of Quill being snarky and Matteusz being a smart ass who just kind of brushes off her comments and continues with whatever is happening.

“I used to command armies, do you know how much financial management goes into that? Making sure there is enough to buy weapons and food?! This is beneath me.”

“Just hand over Park Avenue and eat some more chocolate.”

“Fine, fine, we’ll keep playing your little capitalism simulator. The fact that I can’t bomb any of your hotels and claim the property as my own just shows how unrealistic it truely is though.”

“Uh huh, Charlie, your roll.”

Charlie just looks between Matteusz and Quill, wondering how this is his life.

“Is he going to roll soon or can I go get a bottle of vodka?”

Matteusz rolls his eyes at Quill and then hands Charlie the dice. Charlie rolls on autopilot, mentally trying to figure out if he should call the others, because his boyfriend and his slave bodyguard being in some weird form of friendship is one of the most insane things to have happened since he landed on this planet.

No but I really want Even to be the main in s4. Imagine

  • We get to know more about Even and his past, which is great. 
  • Even spending a lot of time at kollektivet, which means more guru eskild and noora and linn ??? yes please. 
  • we get to see jonas, magnus and mahdi. 
  • Isak and Even being cute and soft boyfriends, but now we get to see it all from even’s point of view and dhsf I need that. 
  • Linn and Even connecting. Linn and Even becoming really close, and supporting each other. Even helping Linn coping with her depression, because he can relate and they sorta just become best buds idk. 
  • Okay, I just really want even to be the main in s4.   

there are two things about isak and even i still haven’t talked about and i honestly need to get them out of my chest

in 2:10, when they are at even’s place smoking by the window and talking about nas, isak completely makes a fool out of himself by saying he knows nas when he clearly doesn’t, right? well right after that, even says “we’ll listen to it later” and then they proceed to give each other the most erotic and breath taking look i’ve seen in my entire life. and you know why? because they know it’s going to be a “later”, because it’s not just them smoking a joint and having small talk. it’s them promising each other something, a tiny future.

okay and then the other thing happens on the same episode. they are in the kitchen right? and even is making them toasts and they are being dorks and everything. and there’s a moment when even says something in the line of “there’s no turning back now” (talking about all the spieces they’ve used dor the toasts) and isak is on his phone and he literally stops for just a second and then he repeats, “no turning back now” and it’s literally the greatest metaphor because just then he lies to the boys and emma about the party to spend more time with even. there’s literally no turning back now, they’ve met, they’ve talked, isak’s gone forever

this show is still surprising me bye bye

PUBLICLY SHIPPING TWO ACTORS WHO ARE NOT DATING IS NOT OKAY.

Let me repeat. Publicly shipping two actors who are not dating is not okay.

I’ve made posts about this before, but I’m seeing it now in the Skam fandom between Tarjei and Henrik, and so I feel the need to talk about this again. You have opinions. You have feelings. You have ships you don’t always mean to have. I get it, and so I cannot tell you not to think Tarjei and Henrik are cute (but also remember Tarjei is 17 so please rethink that one just a little…)

But if you ship any two actors, the respectful and right thing to do is to KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. You can ship them privately, in your head, but as soon as you start sharing those opinions online, it becomes a problem. It may seem innocent to post edits or fics or whatever about to actors on your blog, but it’s bigger than that. Maybe the individual post doesn’t get more than a few notes, but your followers now start thinking about those two actors as more than friends. Maybe one of them starts sharing that ship on their blog too. It spreads. And eventually, it will spread to the actors. Guess what? They don’t want to be shipped with their co-workers.

Because I am in many mlm fandoms, I know this is a huge problem between male actors playing same sex couples. However, this applies to all actors, regardless of gender or sexuality. It is disrespectful to publicly ship actors. You love them so much? Love them by giving them the decent respect a human being deserves. Don’t make them uncomfortable.

“I have the right to do what I want and say what I want.”

You’re absolutely right. You do. Are you saying you choose to hurt others with your freedom? Just because you can ship two actors doesn’t mean you have to.

“Actors know what they sign up for when they get the role.”

Unfortunately, I’m sure a lot of actors do recognize that this bullshit comes with the territory. That doesn’t mean they are okay with it, and that certainly doesn’t mean that they have to put up with it. Just because they know it happens doesn’t mean it has to happen. Actors understanding it occurs doesn’t give you a free pass to make them uncomfortable. Besides, no one can truly prepare themselves for that kind of behavior from fans, no matter how much they try. Anticipating it and experiencing it are two very different things. Also, actors in other countries, like Norway, do not expect this sort of behavior, because there are laws in those countries about privacy for the actors. Not to mention that the people of those countries understand what respecting these actors means and do what they can to not to make them uncomfortable. 

“The actors don’t care. Until they tell us to stop, we don’t have to.”

Unless it gets absolutely unacceptable, actors aren’t going to stand up and tell their fans that they are being bad fans. Why? Because they don’t want to hurt you. And they don’t want to lose you. Just because they aren’t make big, loud, and public statements telling fans to quit their shit doesn’t mean they don’t want you to quit your shit. Actors have asked fans to stop shipping them, and that both didn’t stop fans and sometimes made fans act out angrily. Not every actor should have to go through that for you to understand that actors as a whole want more respect. But do you actually need someone to beg you to stop before you will quit your bad behavior? Seriously?

“You’re just being homophobic.”

(More specific to same sex couples here) Don’t use the LGBT community as a safety blanket for your wrongdoings. If say, hypothetically, Henrik and Tarjei did start dating (and just to stress again that this is hypothetic), I’d support them until the day I die. But they are not dating, and they have not shown any sort of hint at wanting to date. Therefore, urging them to date is not okay. LGBT or not, forcing that relationship, or even the idea of that relationship, is selfish. Don’t. Do. It. And also, when two actors have stated that they are not attracted to their same gender or when they are in a relationship with anyone of any gender, it is not okay to disregard that. I have talked about them before in regards to this issue before, but Matthew Daddario has a long-time girlfriend and Harry Shum Jr. has a wife. They will not date each other, and not being able to mentally separate Magnus and Alec from Matt and Harry is a problem you should fix, not feed into.

I know that it all seems innocent. I know that it all seems private on your blog. I know that it all seems insignificant in the grand scheme of things. But if you can do this one small thing for the actors you claim to love and support, why won’t you do it? You’re probably feeling defensive right now. You want to go into the tags and reblog all about these ships you have because someone on the internet is telling you that you’re wrong. You’re angry. But please, I am begging you, because I too love these actors, think about it from their perspective. Think about how it would feel to have someone make edits and write fics about you with someone you are not attracted to, someone you work with, and someone you respect. Actors are friends. They should be able to hang out together, not just work together, without fans reading too far into it and making them uncomfortable. 

You’re not a bad person, but you are doing something bad. The bright side? You can stop. You don’t have to keep publicly shipping those actors again. You don’t have to keep posting edits and fics on your blog. You don’t have to keep commenting on their social medias about them dating. There are so many wonderful, acceptable ships out there between fictional characters, or even actors who are dating (but again be careful and respectful, because they are still real people). 

Please respect these wonderful people who are working so hard to entertain you. They love you. Now it’s your turn to love them.


Also note: while I referred to actors in this post, this refers to anyone in the spotlight (or really anyone in general). Actors, singers, and more. Respect everyone, please.
