Happy national bean day birthday, @laiteevee ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

have you ever finished a book or show and just had the strongest longing to be a part of that universe, where you have special abilities like them and friendships like them, and sure life is hard there but you know you’re special, you’re valuable, and that everything will be okay in the end

can I just say poc that dye their hair unnatural colors are really cool and it looks great on them !! Hair dye shouldn’t be a stereotypical white people thing, and poc that dye their hair should be acknowledge just as much as white ppl 

I’d love to see more POC on the streets with unnatural hair color bc it looks so cool no matter who you are

tl;dr: A story about how I told a middle aged Muslim man that I was gay & he was trying to be cool about it. Oh, and dolphins can’t build houses.

So the other day I was talking with a middle aged man in an Arabic food store and he was telling me about that “Ghee” was just basically butter made for cooking. Anyway, the subject shifted and suddenly he was asking me about whether or not I was married, what I was doing for a living and so on. I was answering politely to all his questions, (though I started wondering how the subject could change from butter to marriage), and then he said:

“I’m sure there’s a good guy out there for you. Do you have any preferences whether he should be white, Arabic.. Or?”

And then I couldn’t resist it. I said: “Well, I’m not sure if it’s gonna be a guy..”

Him: “…. What?”

“Yeah, I don’t usually fall for guys.. ”

Him:“ But.. That’s not.. eh he.. natural.. ”

“ I’m not sure if you and I could ever agree on that, but this is how I am and it feels natural to me. I’ve been trying to bond emotionally with guys and it just doesn’t happen to me. ”

Him:“ So you have been with guys? (yes) and girls (yes). Where are you most happy? (when I’m with girls) but.. that’s not natural! ”

“If that’s not natural, then how would you explain other species being homosexual? It’s not a problem for any other animal in the animal kingdom. Let’s take dolphins as an example. Why would God create homosexuality in the first place, if it wasn’t natural?”

Him: “But that’s different. They’re animals! (We are also basically animals?) yeah but..dolphins can’t build houses”

I’m just gonna pause that for a moment….

DOLPHINS CAN’T BUILD HOUSES. THAT’S WHY HOMOSEXUALITY ISN’T NATURAL FOR HUMANS.

EVERYONE TAKE NOTES.

Anyway, we kinda shifted the subject again because I was like “eh okay..” and then we talked about other stuff and wished each other a good day.

That was the most random conversation I’ve had in a long time.

another thing i was thinking about last night: you know it’s really neat how everyone interprets the Shade and its effects differently. Like, i used to be worried that because the way I interpreted it was different from how other people integrated it into their lore, i wouldn’t be able to interact with other people. but like, the Shade is such a diverse and nebulous force that it really doesn’t even matter.

I mean, the way it generally effects my clan is that it works as a sickness or a plague of sorts, weakening and corrupting the living beings it reaches. kind of like how the Beast Plague from Bloodborne works. but like, a lot of other people portray the Shade as a parasite, or a demonic entity, and possession is a big part of that aspect. and like, i realized, it doesn’t even matter that these interpretations are different because they can legit all be used, they can all be integrated together because the Shade is such a big, widespread thing. it covers all of Sornieth, it changes with its environment and it doesn’t have to be a uniform thing across the board.

idk, i think that’s really cool. i like knowing that just because everyone has different headcanons about it doesn’t mean people with widely different interpretations can’t interact because of it. shout out to all you folks with the Shade-possessed dragons, to the parasites puppeteering dragon corpses and fooling everyone around them, to the Shade-entities that take on a dragon form, to the dragons that are Shade-touched and have turned their curse into a blessing. shout out to all the weird and diverse and cool shit you all have come up with. the Shade is fuckin’ gross and I love it.
