i will correct what's wrong

A story from the line at McDonald's
  • Me:okay so my sexuality's a complicated deal so let's just call me queer as hell
  • Friend:nono I wanna know can't you explain it
  • Me:well ok mainly I am asexual which means I don't want to do the do nor do I long for it, so it has nothing to do with lack of confidence or anything like that, I simply don't find anyone sexually attractive
  • Friend:right right
  • Me:but I'm also bi romantic. The sexual and romantic attraction are different, and I still fall in love and want to have physical contact with my partner, I just don't need the hanky panky
  • Friend:right cause you have a girlfriend that's pansexual right
  • Me:exactly and as long as we're both happy with not doing the rumba naked, that's a valid relationship
  • Friend:I get it, I get it... I didn't know the entire sexual and romantic orientations were different
  • Me:yeah I know it was an eyeopener for me when I found ou-
  • Lady behind us in line:excuse me so sorry but I couldn't help but overhear but I didn't know half of what you just said and I was just wondering what that thing your girlfriend was is, pansexual?
  • Me:*awkward glance at friend* oh uh I'm not an expert or anything and uh ok so basically it's similar to being bisexual, but there's less value in what gender the one you're attracted to is, at least as I understood it. So a bisexual would be attracted to a person despite their gender, a pansexual wouldn't really care at all in a way uh I'm sorry I'm bad at explaining
  • Lady behind us in line:that's alright I can look it up myself later you gave me a general idea! So where did you find out these things, you're pretty young?
  • Me:well, Internet. Once you're a bit confused about what you might be you usually go looking for explanations...
  • Lady behind us in line:so uh in theory... It's fine if you don't know, I just want to check with you... Is there a thing called aROMANTIC? like you're asexual, is there a equivalent to the romantic orientation you mentioned?
  • Me:oh yeah, absolutely! You can be both asexual and aromantic, or aromantic and heterosexual, literally all combinations are possible!
  • Lady behind us in line:*smiles LIKE REALLY GODDAMNED GENUINELY* thank you so much, I did not know that. *fishes up phone from pocket* now if you excuse me, I'm going to call my mother and tell her I'm not crazy for never having been married or stayed with one guy for long despite being 50+ but still has three children! *steps out of line and walks off while dialing*
  • Friend:wow that was... Amazing
  • Me:see how happy she got? That's the power of right information.
  • And that's why I've been smiling since this happened.


Russia has invaded the Crimea in Ukraine, which is this part: 

The Crimea is an autonomous region of Ukraine which has historically been pretty close to Russia—in fact, it was ceded to Ukraine in 1954 by Russia. The Russians still keep their Black Sea Fleet there and it is believed that the soldiers seen around the city are from the Fleet. There haven’t been any violent confrontations, and though the soldiers are active, there is question whether this should be considered an “invasion and occupation” (the Ukrainian government has argued that it is, while the leader of Crimea has called upon Putin for help). This is an infringement on Ukraine’s sovereignty, though not tantamount to an invasion of mainland Ukraine. What is concerning is that the Russian Parliament has approved Putin’s request for the use of military force in Ukraine (definitely an infringement of sovereignty), but we remain to see whether he will use it. President of the U.S. Barack Obama has denounced this action, and the UN security council is going to meet on Monday is meeting to discuss the new development.

Please stop spreading misinformation that Ukraine has been invaded or that Russia has declared war or that this is going to turn into a World War. There is the possibility of war and Ukrainian troops are on high alert but NO ONE wants to see this escalate. 

make people like Ahmed Merabet the face of French Islam, not the gunmen

don’t even learn their names

know and talk about Ahmed Merabet, the Muslim police officer killed in the Charlie attack

don’t hold charlie hebdo up as a pillar of free speech

but don’t insinuate that anyone deserved to die

don’t expect any Muslim to apologise; expect that the gunmen are isolated radicals


Chris Evans on Steve’s home, family and Bucky:

“Steve has this part of him where it’s Bucky and Peggy from his old life. And then he has a new family and this movie makes these worlds collide. The loss of Peggy certainly made Bucky the last remaining part of his old self, his memory of home, who he is before this shield. It sounds so bizarre. Just who Steve was before he had this responsibility. […] When you lose Peggy, Bucky becomes so much more meaningful. That’s what motivates Steve to become selfish. You got the most selfless guy in comic books all of the sudden saying, 'I care a little bit more about my relationship than what it means to you guys.’ And he’s taking his current family. The guy’s only looking for a place to fit in, he’s looking for home. And he found it with the current Avengers, but Bucky’s that Achilles’ heel. And it’s impossible, pitting that against his current family. He chooses his old family, which is again a little bit of a selfish thing. But that’s something you’ve never done before, and it’s new territory. It’s a grey area that he hasn’t… He’s very… Joe uses this, and I love it. Steve is a very binary guy: he’s this or that. And with Bucky it becomes grey. And I think it’s tough for him. He chooses Bucky.”

headcanon about plagg's behavior when he saw The Book

as we all know, plagg reacted quite differently when he saw the book, as opposed to tikki who was all, “OMFG GET THE BOOK, MARINETTE”. he reacted quite typically: “duuude, i’m hungry, let’s goooo”.

but, it’s still strange. for what it’s worth, when he listed the things inside the safe, he didn’t mention the peacock brooch thing (r.i.p. my french, please correct me if i’m wrong).

imagine these though.

imagine plagg’s blood running cold when he saw The Book and The Brooch. imagine him freezing up for a split second when he saw “Tibet”. imagine him picking up the pieces together when he saw mama agreste’s picture.

imagine him asking the world what his charge, the poor boy, ever did in his previous life that adrien deserved this.

of course, adrien is close to his heart, considering that the cinnamon roll only wanted one thing in his life which was love. imagine plagg in that one or maybe two, three seconds he was in the safe alone running through all adrien’s possible reactions when he finds out that his father is the papillon. one thing was for sure–it would definitely crush adrien’s heart.

plagg cannot bear it if one of his kittens get hurt.

that’s why he tried getting him away from The Vile Book. that’s why he didn’t mention The Brooch. that’s why he acted like his old silly self.

all so that adrien wouldn’t get the wrong (BUT ACTUALLY RIGHT) assumption.

Formula for a ship tease:

☑ Beautiful girl with long hair and an impressive talent in music

☑ Grows close to the protagonist, who offers them support through an oddly-worded speech

☑ Returns the favor by low-key insulting them as a form of affection

The Story is the Message

Don’t tell me, in the audience, that I’m wrong about the story you’re telling. If I can make the argument I’m making about what’s going on, and you think it’s wrong, that’s not my fault, that’s yours. You’re telling the story, and if I’m wrong, you’re not doing your job. 

If you don’t like what I see happening in your story, telling me I’m wrong isn’t going to help. You haven’t made a compelling enough argument to get me on board what a different perspective yet. You haven’t made your point. 

You’ve been ambiguous enough for my interpretation to exist. If you don’t like that perspective, if you really want to shut me up, write it out. You have all the power here. Don’t tell me I’m wrong; get the story to convince me.

Don’t blame me that my perspective is perfectly reasonable and arguable. You invented all the facts. 

The only true thing in the story. Everything else is jazz hands.

Woo Hee said that if he is Baek Ah, then she is Zhong Ji Kee, referring to an ancient story. In that story, Zhong Ji Kee chanced upon Baek Ah when he was playing his instrument by a river, and complimented him with a poem. They became sworn brothers, in an another word, see each other as soulmate. They agreed to meet at the same place again during the next mid-autumn festival. However, when Baek Ah was at the same river a year after, he found out that Zhong Ji Kee passed away. He was so sadden that he did not touch his instrument again, as he believed the only person who understood him was no longer around. (x)
