okay it’s the next day, it’s almost noon as i write this, and i just watched the video where they react to cyrus looking back at jonah for like a dozenth time and i teared up again. and i just woke up. the looking back tells a story. and that story is, from my interpretation, that a boy likes another boy but he’s hurt because his best friend isn’t on good terms with that boy. he feels he’s drifting away from him. and to watch that video of everyone cheering, seeing asher and josh, like this is freakin happening people. to quote cyrus, i didn’t think this was possible. disney actually going there? cyrus is actually becoming the first queer character on disney channel? and i know i’m predictable because i’m gay but if you haven’t already realize it but i’m jyrus af. why?
because the story of the lead girl/boy getting together with his/her straight crush has been done to death especially on disney channel. it happened with gordo and lizzie on lizzie mcguire. it happened with raven and devon on that’s so raven. it happened with phil and keely on phil of the future. it happened with miley and jake on hannah montana. it happened with cody and bailey on the suite life on deck. it happened with austin and ally. and all those stories are great. but it’s been done before. now andi and jonah? there’s gotta be something different. and cyrus is different. just imagine the boys cyrus’ age, they watch cyrus and think there’s this thing they have in common with him and this thing they can relate with him. maybe they have a crush on jonah as well and wish for a happy ending with the two of them.
i’m just grateful that this show exists. i’m grateful this show doesn’t dumb down their storylines. i’m grateful there’s actual storytelling with continuation, for example the “next on andi mack”/”previously on andi mack”. i’m also grateful that disney channel is fully behind this. that the cast is fully behind this. whether or not cyrus and jonah will get together, at this point i’m not expecting it but it’ll be awesome if it happens no doubt. but at least we’ll have a character, who not only has character development like everyone else another thing i’m grateful of, but will have the story of someone finding his true self, eventually accepting who he is and out and proud like any other lgbt person.
@persongoingfast oh and i’m also grateful for josh cuz like he’s the one that is portraying this amazing character. he rocked the finale with that iconic look. excellent job. and yeah.
While rummaging through a box he found in the attic, England uncovers some old photos, along with old memories.
(These took so long to make, I hope you guys like them! I was trying to put subtle stuff in the photos to try and tell a story, I’ve never done it before so it was good practice! I might end up writing something for this if I decide to stop being lazy.)

Clay….Helmet. Your name does not belong on this list. But you need to be here if I’m going to tell my story. If I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy. You’re different. You’re good, and kind, and decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you…I never would. I would’ve ruined you.
So I was asked to write my 2x07 theory and I think I’ve completely put everything together.
So Jace has sex with a random chick (at Magnus’ apartment, like ew we have no room for straight people here get out) and Alec and Jace have a conversation about why the hell Jace is there in the first place. I think that Alec walks in on Jace and the girl doing the do and is utterly repulsed by it. Okay so this sight may have played a hand in Alec’s thinking of sex. I’m not saying he didn’t have those desires before, I’m just saying that this had him wokeTM .
So, Alec goes to none other than his lovely little sister for a sexual consult, to which Izzy is absolutely ecstatic. (number one #malec shipperTM) She probably says something along the lines of “You just know” or something. She then proceeds to explain to him the intricacies of gay sex and he is very confuesd a) because he knows how it works he’s a grown ass man, and b) why does his little sister know so much about the intricacies of gay sex.
And then they go shopping in Japan bc they wanna get away from cockblock JaceTM and when they are there, Alec decides to buy Magnus an omamori, a Japanese good luck charm because Alec is soft af.
Magnus is shook!
and then you have Alec going in for the kill. But it’s just a quick smooch because they are soft boyfriendsTM
Then here we have Magnus and Alec cuddling up into each other on the balcony being all domestic and shit. Things from this point become erotic and something clicks in Alec’s brain and he’s just like ‘I’m ready to lose my flower leggo’ and they begin to take it into the bedroom but then Alec stops to tell Magnus that he is worried he won’t ‘be good at it’ or something like that and the Magnus will say…
after the last thing i draw Jamie’s immediate response was “AU where instead of captain america for a retainer Elise has batman”
so here’s five million doodles of Gerome doing very important retainer duties for the little Nohrian princess, he takes his job increDIBLY seriously, thank you. Unlike the other royal sibs and their Awakening!retainers he is definitely the babysitter here, I bet he’d probably be like Jakob except not a butler and five times more straight-faced.
Dude, I'm the one who made the submission for the Life and Death prompt on writing-prompt-s, and let me tell you, this was the best one I've read yet. You're really talented and I loved the story. Keep up the great work and have a good day/night! ^^
I am so glad you liked it! Thank you for making the prompt! I hope you have a good day/night too! Seriously, thank you!!
On one hand, I love the idea that everyone has a perfect match out there. On the other, they’re so infuriating because in some of them the pair just meets and suddenly everything is perfect but IT SHOULDN’T WORK LIKE THAT!
You can’t just find your match and immediately get along. You have to work for it. Give me the soulmates who hate each other, who have to grow into their relationship, who can argue/disagree/banter, who have to deal with real issues before they get their happy endings. Give all these things to me. Make it gritty and tough. Make it passionate. Make it FEEL eternal and everlasting and WORTHY of being a soulmate bond.
i swear every single time i make or reblog a post about sexism in academia/science someone feels the need to reblog it with a comment to the affect of ‘well i have never encountered unsupportive men’ and like, good for you Susan, I’m glad you’ve had a good experience and aren’t observant enough to notice what’s happening to your female peers, but not everything’s about you
I have a question on how to handle a situation. I'm a part of an IRL writing group. I'm the youngest by a good 20 years at 25 and have already been branded troublesome and a 'hard ass'. There is a guy who decided to write a "biography" of a black woman from Houston. She overcame a lot of obstacles to get a degree and provide for her family. But he inserts himself into the narrative, talks down on her, plus is a white guy writing about her life , a story he has no real business telling.
he’s made jokes about her limited vocabulary compared to his “PhD four syllable one”. His log line is literally “ you can take the girl out of the ghetto but can you take the ghetto out of the girl” Ive brought up that he is telling her story through a lens. I’ve told him he is giving an extremely problematic portrayal and that it will hurt readers. He said I’m “too aggressive” for a girl and continues to work on it. What more can I do? I NEVER want this book to reach a soul.
Confronting Racist Ideas in a Writer’s Group
We feel you should call him out.
As a young woman, we get that you’re at a disadvantage, but you’re also white, and this would be a good way of using your privilege to point out this is an issue. (Although we do sympathize–one of us had to leave a writing group for similar reasons.)
You could refer this blog and/or other sources as a reference for him to read and educate himself.
Though in the end, you can’t make people take you seriously, and can only try to get your point across. If he’s as sexist and racist as he seems to be, there really isn’t much you can do but call him out. Chances are (and fingers crossed) his crappy works never see a bookshelf, but there is always a chance. And hey, it won’t be your fault when he’s on folks’ did-not-finish lists on goodreads with tons of one star reviews.
Another thing; just because you’re “aggressive” (dude, how condescending and tone-policing) which probably is an exaggeration on his part anyhow, doesn’t mean you’re wrong.
Finally, if this group doesn’t take you seriously and no one in charge assists in curbing this guy’s behavior, it’s perfectly acceptable to leave the group for something more suitable. Based on the group deeming you a “troublesome hard ass”, it doesn’t sound like a safe or comfortable environment at all.
This behavior is not something you should have to put up with.
That Tumblr Post we all know what i'm talking about:
don't wake him up from his nap !!! he will throw a tantrum !!! he is a child !!! he will be mad and possibly verbally abuse you !!!
sydney esiason in real life on a video she posted publicly to her instagram story:
*wakes up matt martin in the middle of his nap so he can tell her, her cooking is good and he's very gentle and kind (read: a decent boyfriend) about it, in fact he does what she wants and also pets his dog, very angry, very accurate thank you tumblr.com for teaching me how to date*
