You know what happened last month, without anybody noticing? This is for real. Webster’s Dictionary expanded the definition of the word literally to include the way it’s commonly misused. So the thing is, we no longer have a word in the English language that means literally. I mean, literally doesn’t have a synonym. So we’re going to have to find the Latin word for it and use it, but see, I don’t know any Latin. So when I say that I am literally going to set fire to this building with you in it before I hand over the keys to it…You don’t know if I’m speaking figuratively or literally.
i am done with the opinion that being girly and romantic and being tough and independent and badass are mutually exclusive, or that being one or the other somehow makes one less of a person, especially in the realm of female characters. write girly characters who kick ass and girly characters who would rather not chip a nail. write badass female characters who cry and have romantic plotlines, and write badass female characters who have cold hearts, and write badass female characters in between. there is nothing wrong with a weak female character as long as she isn’t your only female character because females can be weak and not acknowledging that is thinking of females as tropes instead of people. stop simplifying female characters in an attempt to be “feminist” and start seeing them as complex and different, because that’s what real feminism and real representation is.
anyone who has spent five seconds around me ever:
yes, you love Cate Blanchett, we know, you love Cate so much, she's the light of your life, you love her so much, you just love Cate, we KNOW , you love Cate you fucking love Cate ok we know, we get it, YOU LOVE CATE. WE GET IT.
Prince Dean Winchester is on a quest to find and rescue a princess and/or Damsel in Distress. He has few (angry) choice words when it comes to practicing outdated traditions, but Sam agrees this is a good idea, and everyone knows the youngest child in the family is Always the Right One. (See: Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Puss in Boots, Diamonds and Toads, The Princess on the Glass Hill, The Golden Goose… we could be here all day)
As if Dean’s life isn’t complicated enough in that he has to seek out a complete stranger to rescue and marry (seriously), he almost literally stumbles upon a hurt dragon, who ends up travelling with Dean after few, uh… bonding moments. Despite everything, Dean is set on completing the quest to find his potential partner, and being accompanied by a dragon along the way (who’s a little weird, by the way, but Dean’s been with worse company) surely can’t hurt.
A DCBB 2014 fic with art by grandle, coming Oct 24!!
how is taylor even real honestly.. she keeps making every aspect of her life about us.. she trusted fans to keep shake it off a secret for months and let them have a major dance party with her, she picked the livestream fans herself and invited them over for a pizza party, when she could’ve been at iheart enjoying music and her friends she started the secret sessions, spent release day of 1989 with fans on a rooftop and in her home again, then when she was supposed to be primarily focused on 1989 promo she took time and money to shop and paint gifts for fans and even personally delivered some, she gave fans passes to the vsfs just because she wanted to, the day before her birthday was supposed to be her getting the billboard women’s honor and she had gena out with her and that same night she flew jacob out to meet her before jingle ball, new years she performed for us and the world, grammy night she met jill for the heck of it, and valentine’s day she spent with sophie.. all these things happened while she started interacting with us on tumblr while she could be focused on work.. i’m just so filled to brim with gratitude and happiness for all of it and for everyone. and heaven knows this isn’t the end of it, it’s quite possibly just the beginning. keep this in mind and also keep hope alive for yourself and everyone else.
(Guys I just really want to say thank you. While thanksgiving is never the worst day of the year for me it’s usually a lonely one. So thank you for sending a little kindness my way. You don’t know how much it means to me.)
