Fantastic photos from ‘Rose Fes’!

They’re too nice to fight each other what are you even talking about.

So at what point did cultural clothes become less acceptable than wearing a suit? Like who convinced the whole world that to be taken seriously you gotta put on a suit… In other words, dress like the white man.


When was the last time I saw a Pakistani man wearing a salwar kameez at work in Pakistan? Like someone who works in an office. And why is it that wearing a salwar kameez to a walima is “inappropriate”???


Don’t get me wrong, suits look great and all but I HATE that the whole world thinks that every guy has to wear a suit in order to look “put together”.


Since when was our own culture and our own clothes not good enough for us???

Mckirk prompt with him being all about bones in a suit, Karl Urban style. I'm talking closely tailored, open buttons, and the stride of confidence. Bonus for scruff

oh jesus you have opened so many doors but i’ve got to limit myself here we go

…………

Jim studied his reflection in the mirror, running his fingers over his jaw and checking for stubble. Satisfied, he huffed, straightening the collar of his shirt and flicking off the light switch in the bathroom. Starfleet was hosting an officer’s dinner at Yorktown, and while it wasn’t black tie, the senior crew of the Enterprise still needed to look their best. Jim ran a hand through his hair, smoothing it as best he could, and texted Bones.

JK: ready when you are

LM: jesus, give me a few mins to get there. a man needs time

JK: ok ok

JK: hurry up, we don’t want to be late

LM: almost ready

Jim scoffed. Bones was many things, but a diva wasn’t one of them. How long could it possibly take the guy to get ready? Jim wasn’t concerned, per se, but now that he thought about it, he wasn’t sure Bones even owned anything formal beyond his fleet-issued dress uniform. Jim sighed, sliding his arms into the suit jacket sitting over the arm of the couch in his hotel room; hopefully Bones could scrounge up a button-down that wasn’t too shabby.

Jim smiled at the idea of Bones all dressed up. He loved seeing his best friend in dress uniform for special occasions, his hair still fluffy even when combed down to look neat. He had the posture for it, too, all broad shoulders and a straight spine (perks of being a doctor, he supposed; slouching was a bad example.)  He hadn’t seen the doctor all day; he’d been busy coordinating with the medical station at Yorktown, and the fleet didn’t know they were together, so they’d been assigned separate hotel rooms. He’s probably just going to wear a polo or something, Jim thought, rolling his eyes as he heard a sharp knock at the door and went to answer it.

Jim opened the door and practically had the wind knocked out of him.

Bones stood in the hotel hall in a fitted gray suit, his hair neatly combed to one side, shoulders back. He wasn’t wearing a tie, and his shirt was unbuttoned one more than was probably necessary, revealing a sliver of tan chest. He smirked. “Ready to go?” Jim reminded himself how to breathe as subtly as he could and nodded.

“Sure am,” he replied. He gestured to the suit. “You, erm. Clean up nice.” Bones laughed as they walked down the hallway, slinging an arm around Jim’s waist. 

“Only the best for you, darlin’,” he drawled, pressing a quick kiss to Jim’s cheek.

And if Jim spent a little less time in conversation with the other guests that night and a little more staring across the room at a certain someone, well… he’d just claim it wasn’t his fault.

It's pretty disappointing how you reblogged that Beauty and The Beast AU for Phar-mer-cy uncritically. I'm talking about the one where Fareeha was in the blue suit and Angela the yellow dress. Making Fareeha the Beast in that scenario has racist undertones and it always saddens me just how much Phar-mer-cy fandom just creates these things or reblogs them mindlessly without much thought or realizing just how much works of art like that hurt woc.

You mean this piece by @superevilbadguy? A piece where Pharah is not whitewashed, not dehumanised, and not in any way vindicated, subjugated, or marked as inferior because of her race?

Look, I can see how the theoretical concept of Pharah as ‘beast’ could have the capacity to be racist and hurtful, but ‘could’ is not the same as ‘is’, and there is nothing about the execution of this piece that is inherently racist. There’s certainly nothing about it that warrants you coming to my inbox to be passive aggressive about how the p/harmercy fandom hurts woc constantly and how I ‘mindlessly’ hurt woc. 

It’s reach like this which is why you will probably see no more p/harmercy content from me at all. I’m sick of not being able to write the word ‘Pharah’ without people calling me racist. Like, fair enough if I actually do something offensive and worth calling out (and I do, from time to time, like any white person), but it literally got to the point where I could not produce one single story at all without being told I was racist and hurting women of colour. For someone who does actually care about hurting women of colour,  it just got exhausting. I’m sick of it. I’ve had call-out posts accusing me of brown-facing (which I’ve never done) of writing white saviour fics (which I’ve never done), and a whole boat-load of absolute crap and I’m over it. It’s safer for me (and apparently, for woc) if I just stay away from fandom.

It hasn’t stopped though. Like, when I started shipping safer couples in Overwatch together (Speedy Recovery, Mercymaker) you know what happened? I had someone tell me I shipped mercymaker because I didn’t want mercy with ‘a brown woman’. 

I just

like, I can’t win? like there’s nothing I can do to avoid being told I’m hurting woc?

Please, get out of my inbox, or accuse me of shit that’s actually racist. I’m tired of people reaching for ways to find me problematic.

I love classic Vader,but I wish Anakin had killed Obi-Wan in Mustafar and got out of the planet. The guy'd be so powerful and badass... Besides,I think Obi-Wan deserves some shit...

i actually think suitless!vader is a lot more interesting than people give it credit for - usually, it’s turned into, “vader, but pretty,” and that has a lot of terrible connotations, so i usually loathe suitless!vader on principle. 

the pain vader experienced because of the support system is usually at the forefront of people’s minds - but it runs far, far deeper than that. there’s a lot of symbolism behind people wearing masks; there’s a lot of identity issues tied to mask motifs and characters that wear suits of armor. think: tony stark.

but vader’s not willingly wearing his suit of armor - it was forced on him, through a painful, invasive surgery that he was forced to stay awake for. it’s an armor that was purposely customized to palpatine’s needs, not his.

and vader can’t take it off. he can’t override the system, can’t pull it off, can’t escape from it. a lot of the suit is wired directly into his body; i know everyone wants redeemed!vader to loose the suit, but you have to wonder if that’s actually possible - and, to be brutally honest, it’s probably not. (i know in legends that there’s a scene - i’m specifically thinking of lost command - where it’s taken off, but it’s not practical. and, you know, lost command had vader running around helmetless like he can suddenly breathe again - so i take the medical scenarios in that one with a grain - no, bucket - of salt.)

when people are like, “vader should’ve just left!” how? even if vader were in a place to consider it, the suit’s still there. he needs the facilities only the empire can provide, and even more, where is he going to go? how do you hide a 7ft special-order murderbot? 

that suit, truly, reduced vader’s options to one: sith apprentice. even if vader wanted to overthrow the emperor, he couldn’t. even if vader wanted to leave, he couldn’t. he’s stuck.

and what’s even worse is that the suit is a symbol of his transhumanity - there’s actually a song, in legends, that the imperials sang: lord vader’s many mechanical parts. tagge, in the darth vader comics, literally calls him a weapon, equates him to a lightsaber, and tells vader that he needs to be wielded. recently, it was revealed that vader has a literal off-button, like a real droid. it’s easy to dehumanize someone who looks inhuman - and that’s exactly what palpatine wants, because he doesn’t want anyone considering that vader’s human and fallible. he doesn’t want people taking his apprentice.

if that’s not enough, vader’s senses were tampered with. he doesn’t feel a sensation other than pain, doesn’t see a color other than red, the helmet distorts sounds like they’re coming through water - it’s all very isolating. and it’s constant - vader never gets to really get out of his own head, because he barely experiences the world around him. nothing exists other than what vader has to do - it’s a very fucked up way to live. 

the suit is entrenched in every aspect of vader’s life; so deeply that it became entwined with his self-perception. he’s not just wearing the suit, he is the suit. and that’s exactly how palpatine wanted it, because he wanted an apprentice he could control - so he took away vader’s opportunities, put people off of communicating with vader, and shut off vader’s environment. think of a horse with blinkers; vader’s only goal, only purpose, is the empire, and nothing outside of that should be allowed to exist. 

essentially, palpatine has done more than systematically destroy vader’s life - he’s destroyed vader’s potential life. he’s destroyed everything, so vader becomes unreachable in his isolation and pain. 

and vader thanks him for it. there’s a scene in the old canon where vader thanks palpatine for making him stronger - because palpatine pulled his card and said, don’t you like all i’ve done for you? like he’s given vader a gift. 

the suit is so, so important to palpatine’s subjugation of anakin that it’s hard to imagine darth vader without it - and i don’t think there would be a darth vader without it. 

without the suit, there’s nothing keeping him in the empire - other than palpatine. in a suitless!vader situation, palpatine and vader’s relationship is going to be even more insidious, even more disgusting, because palpatine’s relying on solely his wit to keep is apprentice in line. and anakin doesn’t stay in line for long - i highly doubt palpatine could keep a suitless vader for long. 

These two are easily the most brutal characters in the entire series and it’s amazing. Someone should probably tell Orga he grins like a super villain, though. 

  • me, standing at the head of a long table, around which several men in nice suits are sitting: alright boys i feel like shit anyone got any ideas for what to do
  • suit man 1: well, some of us were thinking you could kill yourself.
  • me: interesting concept.... no, that won't do... it would make my friends sad, not to mention we forgot my crippling fear of the void that awaits us all once we die. new idea, boys.
  • suit guy 2: you could try self harming maybe? that's just like suicide lite isn't it?
  • me, pulling out a pen and a notepad: ooh, im jotting that down right now, we'll save that idea and come back to it later. i'm thinking scratching myself til i bleed and punching a few walls maybe.. let's keep this flow going, guys, c'mon!
  • suit guy 3: you could get up and run away into the night, never to be seen again.
  • me, tapping my chin with a pencil: very tempting, very compelling, but it's cold out and i'm a bitch. i'd probably get tired at the end of the street.
  • suit guy 3: well then maybe instead you could try passing out in an attempt to sleep all your problems away?
  • me, pointing my pen at him: now THAT'S what i'm talking about! great work, i knew i could count on you!
  • suit guy 1: okay, hear me out... now i know you said you weren't going to kill yourself but what about instead you just get hit by a truck or something. accidentally.
  • me, rubbing my temples: no, that doesn't solve any of the previous problems with suicide... plus i don't think i can make myself accidentally get hit by a truck.... that kinda cancels out the accidental thing..... any better ideas?
  • suit guy 4: you could try taking responsibility for once and actually attempting to deal with your emotions in a healthy, positive way
  • me: HA! wow, serious suggestions only, man. good one though. anyone else?
  • suit guy 5: you could shut up forever
  • suit guy 6: you could punch a mirror
  • suit guy 7: you could rip out your hair
  • suit guy 8: you could die
  • suit guy 9: you could die
  • suit guy 10: you could die
  • me, sighing deeply: ... guys..... we've been over this
