tips for writing Star Wars fanfic/Star Wars roleplay things

  • it’s not concrete; it’s duracrete
  • viewports are the windows on ships
  • not a plane; ship or speeder
  • it’s not steel; it’s durasteel
  • books are rare; holorecords or datapads
  • it’s not a glass pane it’s transparisteel
  • caf is the equivalent of coffee
  • it’s not paper it’s a flimsi
  • medcenter is a hospital

Star Wars can be very similar to things we’re already used to, but getting familiar with some of these terms can make your writing really fit in with the universe

Since it’s almost “new puppy” season, I thought I’d pass this along.  For those of us in “Heartworm Central“ where moxidectin (and not the dirt-cheap ivermectin) is the prevention of choice, the difference is more like four years’ worth of prevention.

Immiticide (heartworm treatment) can cost anywhere from $500 to $1000, not including other drugs used in the protocol, like doxycycline, prednisone, heartworm prevention, and pain relief.

In the U.S., only Diroban and Immiticide are approved for use in canine heartworm treatment.

I know absolutely nothing about what’s going on with them but I’ve seem them a lot on my dash lately *cough* @kimmys-voodoo *cough* and I feel like a part of me has adopted them as a little ship of mine???? Plus I love old cartoons so…

Why “real racism” is a racist concept

Fandom loves to talk about “real racism.” Not about racist policies and acts themselves, but about racism out in the “real world” that affects “real people.”

Fandom and online racism, by contrast, is not real because … all I can think of is because a person of color can’t be physically assaulted through a screen. 

The implication that fandom/online racism doesn’t affect real people and doesn’t affect the offline world, or that it isn’t important like “serious” racism, is a silencing tactic. You don’t look like a superior ally if you ignore fandom racism with the excuse that you fight “real world” racism. Fandom racism is real world racism.

If you don’t like it when people of color talk about race in fandom spaces, you likely aren’t more welcoming of it in school and work environments. If you make excuses for fandom racism, you’ll likely excuse education and employment racism. Sure, when there’s KKK violence, you’ll be outraged. When Trump puts the lives of Muslim refugees in danger, you’ll take note. Maybe you’ll even protest. But understand, racism doesn’t begin and end with extreme acts. One of the reason racism has flourished in the United States is because it has been defined by extremes, to the point where seemingly small things that people do without a second thought, things that culminate into big things like segregation, are not considered racist.

When you disregard one kind of racism as too trivial to matter, you’re allowing it to flourish, and that does have real world repercussions. 

So please, cut the crap. 

bi/pan trans women are good. their sapphic attraction and attraction to other genders is beautiful and pure and does not make them predatory. they deserve to feel safe in bi/pan and sapphic spaces alike.

protect bi/pan trans women.

Matt said yes guys, what a surprise, wow.

Do you know any ways to make money online because i've seen you sharing some tips about this before?

I’ve been making a lot of money using a survey website. I’ve been doing it for a few months now and make $70 per day from doing their online surveys.

Here is the link for the one I use if you want to give it a try.

You can sign up for the site and you get a bonus just for signing up. I’ve been paid about 10 times from each so I know it’s not a scam. It’s easy and quick to sign up and it’s worth giving it a try.

You’ll be able to complete the surveys and redeem your points to paypal cash, a check, or giftcards. Good luck and have fun! I wish someone told me about this sooner :)
