In light of recent events I’d just like to remind you all the Maximoff Twins were Jewish and Romani. They were horrendously white-washed in MCU and their heritage was taken from them as a way to get round the mutant copyright problem. I love the characters but what Marvel studios did was unacceptable. They are not and will never be part of Hydra. Aaron Taylor-Johnson is Jewish which helps but it is never acknowledged as it should be.
Furthermore Magneto being part of Hydra is absolutely disgusting. If you were to ask me to name a Jewish character he’s the first one I think of and I’m sure that’s the same for many of our followers. Whilst Cap was a hero to stand up to the Nazis, Erik Lehnsherr is a vivid reminder of our history and his pain and anguish represents what so many humans went through at the hands of the Nazis. We said no to hydra cap. Now lets say no to hydra magneto.
Yall remember that time Clarke fell completely in love with Bellamy, then Bellarke became a canon romantic ship & Bellamy was loved so much that even a year after his death he’s still able to trend worldwide for hours and hours with 130k tweets :D
Misawa day theme: AU harry potter AU! Miyuki as slytherin and Sawamura as Gryffindor. Mura often transgress the rules and make some of his senpai(s) worry *cough*mochi*cough*. He is also a potential quidditch player, although he is still in-training at the moment. Miyuki already plays as a player tho and while mura is a bit affected by the common conception that slytherin(s) are cunning and all, but he respects miyuki and sees him differently. Miyu on the other hand, doesn’t really see the commotion of the houses’ differences or stereotypes and he treats each person the way he sees them. Still, he has a strong sense of responsibility to his house.
I sent in my application (about a week ago) to a job at one of the libraries in Tulsa. it’s full-time, includes benefits, and pays a salary that would let me afford a NICE apartment. not just like, nice-for-our-broken-millenial-dreams
this bitch has a pool, a yoga studio, a fitness room with exercise equipment, a tv lounge / mini library / open kitchen space
every apartment has a 17 x 9 balcony I could put planters in for flowers
all stainless steel appliances AND pets are allowed
I would only be 1 mile (~5 min by car) away from the library, right next to the riverside with jogging paths, and tulsa is a very liberal city in a very red state!
so yeah, this could be life-changing and a huge improvement for me and I’d really appreciate prayer, well-wishes, just any sort of positive thought you could send out for me
A late birthday present to the Nonny who asked me for a fic about the Cockles ring.
I hope you like it!
They never really talk about it.
Even after the first time it happened, Misha wanted to—but
as soon as he saw Jensen on set the next day, he froze. And maybe he
would’ve been more inclined to say something to him, if the man had
actually acted weird—if he’d pushed Misha away or given him the silent
treatment; but he didn’t. Jensen acted a hundred percent normal.
soon as he saw him, he patted Misha on the back, told him “Good
morning”, handed him a cup of tea and then walked off to the make-up
trailer. It was almost as if the night before, never even happened—so
Misha assumed that that’s the way Jensen wanted it. He wanted to forget
it all, pretend everything was the same while praying to God that Misha wouldn’t mess up the illusion for him … so Misha didn’t.
He pretended too.
And soon enough, it all felt like some sort of a weird fever dream. Hazy around the edges, but still grounded with memories of touch and smell, and the sensation of someone else’s tongue running across his lips. It was fine. He
would be fine. He rationalized it to himself over and over; it was just
an odd moment between friends. He’s had plenty of those while growing
up— with Darius, mostly … but those are something he’s used to, so
this shouldn’t throw him in the least.
I always drive by the turn off for this place and yesterday decided to take Ammo there and see what’s there. And it’s awesome! There’s even a little tower lookout with a telescope thing, but I didn’t see any turtles :(
It’s only like a 10 minute drive from our house too! And it looks like a lot of trails, we only tried one and didn’t even follow it all the way.
Can I just say that I’m completely not loving all the negativity that is around nowadays? And I’m not even talking about from republicans or from Trump supporters (though that bugs me too, but not the point of this post). I mean from the supposed “enlightened” folks. From people who claim they want the world to be fair, but then turn around and just spew hatred and anger towards people. And not even towards people who deserve it. People who are just trying to have fun and are not hurting anyone. They say “how embarrassing” or “I hope you die” or “Wow, how stupid” and it sucks so much.
Quite a few people I follow are posting things that ridicule simple and kind of dumb (but harmless) things and it just… I hate it. I hate all the negativity and anger people are sharing. Like, I get you’re angry, but do you have to make other people angry too? Do you have to make others be upset and hurt, too? Do you have to take all of the fun in the world and destroy it just because it doesn’t fit your dark, wounded existence? I don’t get it. I wish it would stop, because it’s just going to make the world even worse.
So live. Let people live. Enjoy life, even if it sucks, because it’s all you’ve got. Don’t feel embarrassed for other people, they’re doing fine. Let them be. Don’t make them feel shame for something they did for fun. It’s not cool. Just learn to enjoy things and leave the anger inside if you can’t get rid of it. Talk to someone if it gets too bad.
As Batman said, “If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change, hoo.”
