I’m a day late because I don’t have internet at my house but god I love George with every inch of my being and I hope he is resting peacefully, knowing he still brings smiles to many people’s faces everyday including mine. Last year around this time I wasn’t doing so good, but managed to survive a suicide attempt and I am still severely struggling with my mental health but simply seeing a photo of George brightens my mood plenty and keeps me holding on until tomorrow. You’ve taught me to “be here now” and I’m slowly learning how to let go of the past. I don’t know how I would fight through any of this without his music or his words and thoughts, he’s brought many things to me including meditation and positive thinking. You give me the strength to keep breathing and keep fighting this George! I may not have ever known you but the light you’ve brought to me and to this world doesn’t go unrecognized or unnoticed. Happy belated birthday love you will forever shine on in my heart!💖
I dunno... Can someone explain? (Genuinely, I'm not being an ass)
I’m trying to be as inclusive and accepting as possible, but there’s some things on this site that I can’t fathom. And I want to understand, if possible…
Like Dragon Kin… I read a post once about a user who was complaining that their mother wouldn’t let them swallow her diamond wedding ring, and another user who said that was literally child abuse because she was starving her kid.
No… letting you swallow something you can possibly choke on is child abuse. What that mother is doing is the complete opposite. If she was locking the kid up and not giving them food and water in an attempt to force a change, that would be different.
And before you complain that I’m against transpeople no I most definitely am not.
But I don’t know what to do with people who want to be cats and mythical creatures and so on… Because that sounds unsafe And dangerous to me (although I guess it depends on how you intend to live with it) ,and my biggest morality is to help prevent people from doing harm to one another and themselves, but my second mortality is to allow people to be themselves…
I mean I feel like maybe some of it is part of the label. The words of woman and man that you are given don’t suit you. It’s like when you hear about the names that your parents might have named you instead. Sometimes you feel an intense revulsion towards that name cause it isn’t you, or an attachment because your current name doesn’t explain you. Because our name is something we wear on our hearts more than almost anything as our identity, made up secondly by our gender, which others view know how to interact with us as much as we engage with others with that identity.
A name can mean so much. And I do not dispute the power of a name. If you want me to call you by something other than society recognizes you as then I respect that wholeheartedly. However, I still feel weird with dragons and elves and other such entities for reasons listed above.
This post is probably a muddled mess, so I apologize. And I genuinely don’t mean to attack anyone, and no doubt I’ll get flack from both sides. But if you are such an entity as a dragonkin or otherkin or otherwise, maybe you could enlighten me?
Send all the love you can to @sai-shou and @lightning-cross. They both lost someone very dear to them today, and…… I just want to give them both a shoulder to cry on. Even if you can’t message them directly, tagging them in comforting posts will be enough. Thank you.
Ok. So i’ve had the idea for a LazyTown ship week for a while. It’ll be in March or April (most likely i’ll make another blog for it.). But i want to know what themes do you guys like best for the days. So far i have.
Just send in an ask or reply the ones you want to do the most, and if you have any ideas for days let me know i can add it to the list.
your hogwarts house is more important than your name
so vast?? so old??? scary, kind of.
really old classic fics
used to have ship wars like all hell, and kind of still does??? but not really??? it’s better now
every other fandom has a harry potter au.
split into different sects that are practically whole different fandoms. there’s the marauders fandom, the golden trio/canon era fandom, the fantastic beasts fandom, the next gen fandom – they’re all like little umbrella fandoms under one great big potter net.
no one’s favorite character is harry potter.
they don’t talk about the cursed child.
will never die.
holy shIT this fandom is a minefield
a lot of teenagers??? like??? a lot???
an alarming amount of smut fic
i dont know a lot of this fandom is really immature and there are so many ship wars?? like???
ignoring actual historical material in favor of coddling your favorite character
the dub is one of the most quotable things i’ve ever seen
hetalia is very much a starter anime. a lot of people get into this anime as like a gateway drug and grow out of the fandom later on.
lots of bad fic, with rare absolute GEMS thrown in.
some fics are beautifully researched, intricate, historically accurate, and amazing. so much potential for fic in this fandom.
the main character is jean valjean
much of the fandom does not realize this.
les amis are love, les amis are life. jean valjean?? who??? javert??? who’s that?? fantine????? WHO THE FC U K
emerges from the deep once every few years when a movie or something else comes out.
The Movie Musical shot the fandom to new heights and launched a new era, but now has mostly calmed down???
also will never die. been around since 1862 and still going strong.
used to be eponine stans (eppyboppers) who hated cosette??? and usually shipped eponine with marius or enjolras. thank god that’s over.
literally everyone ships E/R.
even the actors ship E/R.
sO MUCH GREAT FIC
oikawa tooru is universally adored
pretty much everyone ships the same things?? like obviously not, and there are so many great character dynamics and rarepairs, but ships like bokuaka, iwaoi, kagehina, etc. are so ingrained in the actual canon that everyone ships them a LITTLE bit, even if you ship the character different ways too.
you can ship anyone with anyone. literally. go fuckin wild.
everyone has normal hair except for the one owl guy.
YOU SHOULD HAVE COME TO SHIRATORIZAWA
Yuri!! on Ice
EVERYONE SHIPS VICTUURI. IT IS AN ACTUAL CANON GAY SHIP AND IT IS GOLDEN.
at this point 90% of the fandom is just screaming over any new content they get b/c it’s all so great.
everyone under 20 gets shipped with yurio, and every one of these ships is somehow controversial.
fandom swings back and forth between wanting JJ to die in a fire or being ready to protect him to the ends of the earth.
sala or sara??? nobody can decide??? (spoiler alert: it’s sara, that’s a real italian name, sala is the word for living room.)
even the people who despise the dub can’t hate it THAT much
at one point the fandom hated chris, but now he’s just kind of the weird overly sexual uncle at the family barbecue
