if you really don't wanna know about anything at all

tumblr servant is a godsend with a lot of useful functions but my primary use for it is this

so let’s say you’re a big fan of transformers so obviously you don’t want to blacklist #transformers, and you’ve got this cool friend kyle, but every single time kyle posts or reblogs something about transformers it’s just… it’s garbage. it’s a Bad Post. he has bad opinions and he should feel bad. you know that it’s petty shit but it irritates you every time you see one of his bad, bad transformers posts. but most of what he posts is awesome! you don’t wanna unfollow his ass! so you make a tumblr servant instead and even if he doesn’t tag shit about shit, if the word ‘transformers’ is in the post at all you will never see it. peace is restored on your dash. you are free.

you can also do a lot of other shit like dim posts or highlight posts or give you notifications etc etc etc but i mostly just hide Bad Fandom Opinions because i’m petty

Ragnarok Thoughts

I am a lucky and blessed soul who got to watch Ragnarok last night in IMAX-holy fuck they’re all so beautiful-3D.

Anyway, I have massive feelings about the film… not going to give away any actual plot spoilers here or anything, but my quick thoughts/feels are below the cut for any poor soul who needs to wait another 10 days and wants to perhaps see some vague reflection re: the film in general, Thor and Loki’s relationship arc, etc….

And if anyone has any particular questions, I will do my best to give you vague non-spoilery answers. Or, y’know, spoilery, if you really really want it.

I really like mj's music and I really wanna like him as a person and I know you'd never stan someone who did anything to children but the one thing I still can't figure out is how that kid knew about the birth mark on his privates cause I know his dad hated mj and just wanted revenge but I don't understand the thing about the birth mark. I'm sorry I'm really not trying to upset you or make you mad I just wanna know if you can help me understand

I know u not trying to upset me but when i get asks about this all the time it get frustrating, but again not everybody is informed on the allegations of 1993 and 2003.

I don’t know which kid you’re speaking of with the birthmark claim, I’m guessing it’s 1993’s Jordan Chandler, so let me address this. In 1993, Michael was stripped searched by investigators after Evan Chandler, the boys father (who by the way was exposed with audio of him PLANNING to seek extortion money from Michael after Michael denied his request of $20 million. Evan chandler was a dentist but also a script writer trying to make it in hollywood, where he helped in writing the script for 1993’s Robin Hood, here’s the audio of the phone call https://youtu.be/0NlhDPjEI8I). After Michael was strip searched, they took pictures to see if they matched the boy’s claim, where they DIDN’T I don’t know where you’ve read or heard that he did? Because due to the fact they didn’t match, Michael wasn’t arrested and lack of evidence led to the criminal investigation to end (not because of the settlement). Evan Chandler’s lawyer even wanted to eliminate the photos in court BECAUSE they didn’t match the description provided.

If you’re this invested into this idea that Michael was in fact a pedophile, read into things and not just hear and assume through word of mouth. You can read the GQ article written about this from 1994 supporting the idea he was framed for extortion money (https://mjjtruthnow.wordpress.com/2014/05/20/was-michael-jackson-framed-the-defining-1994-gq-article-by-mary-a-fischer-that-set-the-record-straight-on-the-1993-allegations/) or you can go through this thread on twitter with video and photos provided throughout it (https://twitter.com/mjjlegion/status/874779189278330885)


Leave michael OLONE

i get it y’all wanna speculate about ur fave’s sexuality……. whatever ok but like stop talking in absolutes. nothing is “obvious”, none of you “know” anything…. that kind of language is harmful to lgbtq+ people because it perpetuates stereotypes and also exacerbates the environment of fear that surrounds those who are closeted and don’t want to be “obvious” or have other people “know” before they’re ready

“I don’t know much about relationships. I don’t know anything about love. All I want, like, in this whole world, is to just keep talking to you. I wanna know how your day was, where you wanna eat, and I wanna argue with you. And I wanna hear all your theories, even the ones that are just completely, you know, wrong. And I know it’s not that simple. I just believe that if you are really willing to continue having this conversation with me, then we can figure the rest out.”

The first time.

LOOK

Because I know this is gonna get some people riled up,you guys need to understand that Kadena or no Kadena,this is the same show with the same characters.As important as this relationship is and I understand,I feel like some people are gonna go off on social media or something about how they feel a little betrayed and forget what the show is actually about(i say this from my experience in fandoms)

Kat tried to make it right,but Adena chose for herself after that heated discussion they had and did what was best for her.Kat was closed off and didn’t really show her true emotions in that scene in the office,so Adena took it the wrong way and she had all rights to.

Things happen and I’m sure Kat and Adena will work it out,at some point.

I’m just putting this out there,but I don’t know how many people will make a scene thinking it’s the end of Kadena and all that and they feel betrayed,but when I was a baby gay with little to no experience in fandoms I took so much personally and it wasn’t really my fault,but The Bold Type is different,it isn’t “that show”,they didn’t hype us for nothing.As I know for sure there are young lgbtq peeps out there watching tbt and probably going through some stuff,scraping for rep,all I wanna tell you,peeps,is:

It’s gonna be oke.Think it through before starting a thing.I love ya,don’t worry,it isn’t the end of anything

chickenwingangelwing  asked:

What would the UT, UF, and US bros do if they were out on a walk and their crush suddenly ran past them with some guy, or some bullies following close behind and gaining on them? (You don't have to do all three if you don't want, I know that's quite a bit of writing)

i left out blue and edge bc i couldn’t think of anything. i could but the words arent working @ all

Undertale
Sans

Sans would be really nonchalant about it, throwing up a wall of bones around the guy, effectively stopping him. He’d muster the creepiest face he could manage, ask the guy, “do you wanna have a bad time? leave them alone.” And throw down the wall of bones, offering his hand to you, to lead you back home safely, cracking a few jokes to help calm you down, if you need it.

Papyrus

Papyrus would start running along side you, picking you up and running faster than the other guys. He’d find a place to hide as the group would run past, and make sure that you’re safe and okay. He’d ask you what they were chasing you for, and that if he could find them and help them out, because he’s such a hopeful goofball, who wants to impress you very much.

Underfell
Red

Do you know how angry this made Red? Especially when he heard your call for help? He would catch the bullies with his magic, slam them to the ground, and threaten to kill them if they didn’t leave you alone. It takes a lot of convincing on your part for him not to kill them. If you ask why he got so angry, he won’t give a straight answer.

Underswap
Stretch

Stretch would catch you with his magic, and bring you high up, out of harms way. He would then threaten the guy who was chasing you, bringing up his blaster behind him, telling him that you are are under his protection, and any attempt to harm you would mean he has a bad time. He would set you down next to himself, and toss the other guy away, putting his arm around you, in case you needed some support.

I don't wanna get weird or anything but I don't really know anything about you, the author of all this wonderful writing. I know you have a girlfriend, but that's it. Tell us about YOU! :V

Oh my … don’t worry, it’s not weird! I’m just … not all that interesting? :D And also always kinda paranoid that someone I know will be like “wait it’s YOU writing porn on the internet?!” which in turn would mean that they’re reading porn on the internet so … I guess I can risk it this once!

Alright uhm … I’m from Germany, 22 years old.
Just finished my bachelor’s in psychology last fall and then took a semester off to do an internship in the UK (also to be with my gf who lives there). But now I’m back and working towards my master’s in clinical psych and maybe neuro psych, I’m not yet 100% sure about my second focus area.

I like chill things, hanging out with my friends at bars or having game or movie nights. Also pretty big into video games, though I lack the funds atm to get a system that can handle newer games (watch me cry sad tears as I replay the same 10 crappy steam games every day. Also WoW. I kick ass healing. Though I limit my WoW gametime to breaktime at uni and try to stay casual)

What else? Well, I like to write a lot but you all know that :D Reading is great too, mostly fanfic but I’m trying to get back more into books lately.
Uh … I try to make an effort to look and dress cute but I don’t really have a fashion sense and most days I’m lazy and just wear jeans and a random shirt.
My fav food is mom’s lasagna and I love juice with sparkly water.
I’m really claustrophobic and scared of the dark.
I got two amazing older brothers and my parents are working hard to accept the gay.
My fav color is green.
I love candles. Like any candles. Small ones, big ones, nice smelling ones. I burn candles every night.
I genuinely dislike 70% of what I’m writing. But I try to be okay with it and move on instead of striving for perfection. That’s why I stick to shorter things cause it’s easier to just start something new and forget about the thing I didn’t like.
My girlfriend is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
I really enjoy listening to music and have a playlist for every occasion but I don’t play any instruments.
I’m a sub and about as kinky as you’d expect.
I learned English, Latin, French and Spanish in school and forgot everything but English and a tiny bit of Spanish. Trying to learn Portuguese at the moment.

I hope this will satisfy everyone’s curiosity for now :D

Have any of you guys ever read a fic with a pairing you don't ship all that much and thought 'wow, this is amazing' and made you wanna read more of them?

i ship yixing with anything that has a pulse lol, but i guess maybe byunxing? i didn’t really know much about them at first, but i’ve read some really quality byunxing fics the past few months and i’ve fallen in love with them.

Admin


Like Admin ♚, I ship Yixing with anyone and everyone, but I’ve never really been into Laysoo. I think Yixing and Kyungsoo are really close, but they’ve never really caught my eye like Layhan or Sexing. But these three fics are amazing and must reads, even if you’re not a Laysoo shipper:

–Admin ♠


This small gay egg also ships Yixing with anything that has a pulse tbh, but I’m not too fond of layhan. Please do not kill me! I really used to like them but then I found out Luhan said something rlly gross and it really affected me in a negative manner so I kind of stopped. But no fear, I’ve been getting re-acquainted with layhan thanks to the luxingyou net. anyways, here are my favorites.

Hey, i've been following you for a while now and your art is really amazing man! Listen, uh i don't wanna bother you, but i don't have anybody I could ask this. I just dropped out of high school and wanna set up a store for my art, maybe do some commissions.. but the thing is i don't know if it will be enough, you know? Art is all i have and i just have to make this work somehow, so I would really appreciate your advice in this. Thank you in advance and keep up the great art :)

Hello, I can’t really say anything because i don’t know about your circumstances, living cost etc. I think education is important though. I don’t know why you’re dropping out but I hope you’re ok. I also didn’t finish highschool, but I did go to college to finish my diploma.

You need to take into account that you need money to start up to print your art, the electricity (if you draw digitally), if you do traditional you’ll need to pay for all the tools, if you live with your parents you still gotta help them pay the living cost etc. If you want to set up a store for your art for a living, you should consider the target market of your art and where you get the fund for you to do your things. Sometimes commission comes and sometimes they don’t, don’t rely on it too much.

First I suggest you need to have a steady income, I joined a studio as a steady income and make my personal art as the extra money.

About online shop etc I think tictail is one of the best, because they don’t charge you for tax and the money goes to your paypal accout right away.
Patreon is also good for your supporter to donate you monthly or charge per post
Gumroad is for you to sell your art or anything digitally
I’m still not sure about society6 or redbubble though but you can judge them from here, which suits you the most

Hope this helps, have a good day :)

You're probably sick of hearing about this but could you or Aleks please try to diffuse your fanbase from spamming the creatures. I love both of your groups deeply but this shit is giving me flashbacks to the "war" between your fans and pewdiepie's. I'm sure they don't wanna see it anymore than you wanna be hearing about it from me. I don't know if there's anything you can really do, you know the business much better than me, but it's just sad seeing people send so much hate their way

I don’t believe it has anything to do with us or “our” fan base. You bring up the “pewdiepie” stuff but i feel thats a completely different thing, with that it was “uber is better, no pewds is better” all we did was continue making content and it fizzled out cause people eventually saw we were very different. Plus pewds had that with a lot of content creators at the time, not just me. 

With this its just a very vocal fanbase explaining their displeasure with the current product (and have been for awhile). When we left, we wanted a different feel and a different look and we upped production value. For them nothing changed cept the ideas got more plain and simple. They simply need to up their game, change shit up and stop phoning it in. Cause when 90% of the content looks lazy/cringey/a copy of Funhaus, the audience is gonna call you out on it cause you can see it in the videos…plain as day. And then if you ignore that audience it only makes them more rabid and mad. Just a deeper and deeper hole that should have been taken care of right away. Not to say audience knows everything, but still. If thats the “new” direction, at least say it.

Edit: About the emotes…i agree they should not be there. They can be blocked in the filter system and thats how i would suggest combating that problem.

I've been friends with this guy for about 3 years and we have become so close. We talk about anything and everything. He's so sweet and caring. He always knows when I'm feeling down or I have something on my mind. The only thing is.. I fell so hard for him & I don't know if he'll feel the same.. Cause were such good friends Also I'm going away for college and he doesn't know at all. I just wish there was away to tell him. I don't know what to do. I really like him, I just don't wanna get hurt..

I still don’t see how you would even get hurt. You say you talk about everything and you’ve known him for three years, you should be able to trust him with the truth.

If you worry so much about potentially getting hurt you will be afraid to do anything and will only have regrets. Better to try and fail than to never try and wonder. If you trust someone, you are honest with them and have faith that they won’t intentionally hurt you. Do you trust him?

The Boy Next Door (Michael One Shot)

A/N: This is my first time writing in a while, also my first time writing smut. Somewhat inspired by this post.

Rating: R

Words:4105

Pairing: Michael Clifford/You

——————–

“Y/N! Come downstairs!” Your mom called from the kitchen.

“Why?” You shouted in return. It really wasn’t on your agenda to go out for a ‘family bonding day.’

“A new family just moved into the house next door. We’re going to go welcome them to the neighborhood.” You could now hear her footsteps coming up the stairs and toward your room.

You sighed and rolled of your bed. “Okay, Mom. I’m coming.” You opened the door to see her standing, hand poised above the doorknob. “Can we make it quick though?”

“Just come say hi, okay? Then you can leave.”

You agreed and threw on You favorite flannel shirt, following you mother down the stairs. It was a short walk over. The house was literally right next door to yours. In fact, if you wanted to, you could almost reach the house from your bedroom window. It was a little close for comfort, but since there hadn’t been anyone living there for the past 4 months, you nearly forgot it was there.

When you stepped onto the front porch it creaked under your weight. Your mom ignored it and went ahead to ring the doorbell. It was a moment before anyone came to the door. You had to stop and wonder if these were the kind of people that liked to be bothered. Lord knows they’ll have to get used to it with your mother living right next door. She’s the kind of neighbor to bring over cookies for no particular reason.

You realized when the door opened that you were wrong. The lady that opened the door had a bright smile on here face and answered with a sing-song voice. “Hello! Can I help you?”

“Oh, no. No, we’re just here to welcome you to the neighborhood and all. We brought you cookies. I hope no one is allergic to chocolate chip?”

“Well, that is very kind of you. Thank you.” She smiled as she took the tray of cookies my mother offered.

My mother then proceeded to introduce herself. “And this is my daughter, Y/N.”

“Hi.” You managed to say, just hoping you would be allowed to go home soon.

“It’s very nice to meet you. How old are you? You must be nearly the same age as my son. He’s eighteen.”

“Yeah, I’m eighteen too.”

“How wonderful! It’s a great age, isn’t it?”

“Um, yeah. Sure.” Now she’s talking to you like she knows me. Like you’re long time family friends or something. You needed to get out of there before something weird happened.

“Michael! Michael come down from your room and say hi to our new neighbors.”

anonymous asked:

Mod I feel like I'm bothering you but can we please have some encouragement from a U.K. buddy? I'm so scared right now and I don't even know if I'll make it through tonight, I just wanna collapse and never face anything ever again

I just woke up and got the news, I don’t know what to say, so what I say shouldn’t really be taken as any sort of authority but if you’re feeling anything like the shock and dismay I felt when I knew about Brexit going through (or, indeed, that I still feel and that I’m feeling right now with this morning’s news), please know that that feeling makes you human. It is not a good feeling, at all, but it is a sign of your goodness. Unfortunately, being good is a lot more difficult than being horrible- but for all that we have to cling onto it. You are worried and scared witless because you are aware and compassionate and you care about what is going to happen- not just to you, in the immediate moment, but to everyone  in the world for many years into the future. 

This is a Big Thing. It is Bad. It is a huge weight to have to hold and it hurts when you do. If you need to collapse, for a little while, that’s completely understandable and you can take a day or two out to do so safely and with people you love. Collapse together; stay in contact with friends and hold onto each other, and hold on to that ability to care because we are all, all of us, going to have fight tooth and nail to keep that humanity and that goodness and do everything and anything we can to fix this. We have to ride out this shockwave and remember what we are and what we mean, and, when we have been collapsed together for long enough to gather strength, we have to accept our responsibility and use that strength to stand up, regardless of what is pushing down on us. We have to stand up.

Oh boy this is gonna take some time and I’m bound to miss something out!! And don’t worry about it cutie pie, the only way you can learn about these things is by asking or by researching!! It’s better to try and educate yourself rather than just shut up and feel bad. *grin*

Obviously, I’m not the be all and end all of knowledge, so please forgive me if I get anything wrong or if I miss something out.

We’ll start with sexual preferences because those are often more well known.

Heterosexual- Someone that is only sexually attracted to those of the opposite gender.

Bisexual- Someone that is sexually attracted to those of the opposite and the same gender. Some people also use bisexual to include those outside the gender binary as well. (I’ll talk about this further down if this term confuses you! ^^)

Pansexual- Someone that is sexually attracted to any gender.

Asexual- Someone who doesn’t experience sexual attraction. This term is quite broad as, because we are all individuals, may experience sexual attraction on a spectrum, so someone who is asexual may still ocassionally enjoy sex and that’s not a bad thing, but neither is it to be repulsed by sex. Lots of asexuals find even talking about sex incredibly uncomfortable. This doesn’t mean necessarily that they’re ‘broken’ or that they’ve been abused, they just don’t find that sex gets their motor running and that’s cool. Some people in this category may call themselves ‘greysexual’ or ’greyasexual’ if they feel they sometimes get sexually aroused by another person.

Demisexual- Someone that only feels sexual attraction to someone after developing a very strong bond with them.

Polysexual/Polyamorous- (I don’t know too much about this one, so someone feel free to correct me or educate me further) Someone that may be sexually attracted to multiple partners at once! This doesn’t mean they love one any less or any more than another. Often people in polyamorous relationships are incredibly committed to those involved and have massive bonds of trust and communication.

EDIT FOR THE ABOVE:

Polysexual (as far as I know) Is liking people of multiple, but not all genders. (Perhaps a cisfemale like FTM Trans, Cismale and Intersex, but not MTF trans or cis female) Where as Polyamorous is being in love with multiple people at one time (in a variety of configurations, which I reblogged a post about not too long ago)

All of the above can have ‘sexual’ switched for ‘romantic’, for instance someone can be heterosexual (only being sexually attracted to those of the opposite gender) but panromantic (still want to do ‘romantic’ things such as kissing and holding and cuddling with someone of any gender.

Now for the gender terms! Again, my knowledge is limited but I’ll do my best and if anyone feels I’ve unfairly represented someone, feel free to let me know and I’ll amend it. :3 I’m gonna talk about the bare bones of each but everyone expresses their gender identity differently. Yes it’s a complex thing but humans don’t really fit into neat categories!!!

Cisgender- Someone whose gender identity matches the genitalia they were born with.

Transgender- Someone whose biology doesn’t match who their gender identity (eg a man being stuck with female bits and hormones). This sucks because those that are transgender often feel like they’re trapped in the wrong body. Many choose to go on hormone therapy to alter their biology to fit more comfortably with who they are. Some choose to go on to have surgery to alter their body as well, but unfortunately these procedures are still in the early stages of being developed and aren’t for everyone. However the medical community is making leaps and bounds in very short amounts of time, so that’s hopeful for the future that nobody will ever have to feel like they’re in the wrong body again. :)

Intersex-  Someone who was born with elements of both male and female biology. Intersex is a moderately new term, stepping away from the old associations of abuse and dehumanisation of the word ‘hermaphrodite’. Some intersex people may still choose to describe themselves using it, but most find it either insulting or misleading as people often mistake human hermaphrodism for what’s known as ‘true hermaphrodite’ (which means fully functioning male and female genitalia, which is not possible in mammals). They may choose to express themselves however they wish, depending on the individual, but lack of awareness about intersex people and quite frankly inhumane medical practices surrounding them (I really don’t want to go into the awful detail here), means that society has still a long way to go to make intersex individuals feel comfortable with themselves. Which really sucks.

Genderfluid- Someone who fluctuates between genders depending on how they feel, regardless of their genitalia and hormones. Some days a genderfluid individual may feel incredibly uncomfortable expressing themselves as female and instead present as male. Others, it might be vice versa or something inbetween. Androgny is a common expression. :3

Bigender- Similar to genderfluid, but by definition tends to stick to the opposite ends of binary, so mostly male and female.

Androgyne- Mentioned in genderfluid, this is someone that feels, instead of the vastly differing extremes of male or female, would rather express themselves in the middle of the spectrum, and does not identify as either gender but perhaps a ‘third gender’.

Agender- Someone who doesn’t identify as any gender. Okay this one is fairly underepresented, perhaps because it often gets confused with genderfluid, which is understandable. Agender individuals don’t feel any kind of connection with gender at all. They may express themselves as male or female, but don’t connect with it. Agender individuals may often feel dysphoria because of this and may feel no connection to their body. This is different from transgender or genderfluid dysphoria as it’s less ‘my body doesn’t match and its horrible and ugh why’ and more ‘wait, are you sure this is my body?’

Genderqueer- This is often used as a general umbrella term for those that don’t identify as cisgender. :3

In short, human beings are marvellous wonderful creatures that have created all these terms to stop individuals feeling alienated in a society that is currently very wrapped up in gender roles.

Non binary genders and differing sexualities are also frequent in nature, no matter what some narrow minded bigots might try and convince you otherwise. All you need is a little bit of research and the world gets a whole lot more beautiful.

p.s. Lemme know if you want anything clarified or if I’ve missed anything. I am not a representative for all of the above, obviously, but I’ve done my best and hopefully you can go on from here and leaaarn. <3 Isn’t knowledge just wonderful??
