Omg wait, you have cats?? What kind of cat breed are they? I love cats so much, you don't understand, what's their name? (I wish I was doki ahaha~ she's such an awesome person so I honestly feel praised now)
Doki is really cool, dude. You should hit her up sometime. She’ll tell you all about her love of prostate orgasms. Very interesting stuff.
I have two cats though! Rose is the tiny black one. She’s about two. A little wild and socially awkward. Dean is the big boy. He’s about three and weighs anywhere between 13 and 15lbs depending on the time of year. Just a big dude, but a total sweetheart. They’re spoiled rotten.
Your hard work and dedication is what makes you my favorite writer. The way you keep trying to improve and accept criticisms from school and from fans and just keep trying to get better withouy giving up even though you feel like it makes you a role model in my eyes. To us who don't know much about writing you are all ready amazing and you keep getting more amazing. We believe in you carly.
You’re only able to maintain the visage of being a person when no one’s looking, is that it? Or are you the only one who’s blind to what you really are?
(Just because you’re dead (ish) doesn’t mean you can’t have nice hair; one-upping Jack from beyond the grave (kind of). Also this whole thing begins because someone walked on his lawn. You’re not the only one with a lawn, JACK. His lawn has goth lawn flamingos is better than yours.)
Y'all can gush about m night shyamalan all you want but the biggest plot twist I’ve ever witnessed is Ben stiller releasing some crusty mummy from a sarcophagus and it ending up being the fine ass Rami Malek
I, too, liked to shit on stuff other people liked when I was sixteen because let’s face it teenagers are fabulous assholes but honestly I just wanna look at pretty fanart without people busting into the tag like “I HAVE AN OPINION AND I WANT TO HAVE IT AS LOUDLY AS POSSIBLE” like
As you grow, you will begin to understand that not everything is black and white, you can enjoy problematic media, even while acknowledging its problema…nia… Yeah okay problemania, without suddenly becoming problematic yourself, because
(1) you are aware of the line between fiction and reality, (2) you no longer care as much about internet peer pressure (and yes, tumblr’s brand of social justice IS a very toxic form of peer pressure), and (3) you are not an idiot.
Of course you don’t watch The Matrix and think that shooting people is okay because they’re trapped inside a computer simulation. Of course things in the real world don’t turn out like in Disney movies. Of course you don’t read Royal Assassin and then start a letter writing campaign demanding to know who Taylor Swift’s catalyst is. Of course you don’t read a gay romance novel littered with yaoi tropes and then think people act that way in real life.
It’s a story, it’s fiction, and it’s important for you to realize that. YES it’s problematic, but goddamn it so is everything. Ender’s Game is a fantastic book written by a guy who thinks homosexuals should be imprisoned on an island somewhere. J R R Tolkien apparently forgot black people exist. Robin Hobb hates fanfiction. Taylor Swift won’t answer any of my letters!
What makes the story toxic or not depends solely on how YOU choose to interact with it. When I rec cap prince to people, I tell them “be warned there are some pretty gnarly things going on in these books, but it has a really entertaining story.” Then– and this is pretty important– I DONT go out and subjugate the nearest brown person, because that is not the part of the story I identified most with.
(Okay, I subjugate Sabra a LITTLE. but she likes it.)
Tumblr wants you to reject imperfect stories the same way it encourages you to reject imperfect people. Stick your head up out of the fog and realize how dangerous that is. How long until they come for whatever makes you happy? How long until they come for you?
Don’t read or watch things you don’t like, or that make you feel uncomfortable. But there’s no reason for you to police others, and no reason for them to police you. Let it go. Go find something that makes you happy and hold onto it.
Imagine being raised without that book you loved since you were little, that movie series you grew up with watching and that disney show you were obsessed with. You don’t realize how these small things can and have affected you and your life. They have taught you many things that you will carry with you forever. Next time a person tells you it is silly to love something old that came from your childhood tell them that it’s silly not to.
