i know it’s been a month but i still keep thinking about otabek’s internal monologue during welcome to the madness
“ok beka listen if you can survive watching him walk out of the dressing room in that outfit then you can survive th-OK OK CALM DOWN HE TOTALLY DID NOT NOTICE THAT HE GRAZED YOUR TONGUE WITH HIS FINGER ok beka control yourself you are #2kool you can do this now it’s time to shoot ‘im dead aaaaand his shirt’s riding up and his hair’s fanned out FuCk just take your coat off hold it in front of you and make a run for the hotel you’ve had enough for one night IGNORE NIKIFOROV AND KATSUKI’S SIDE-EYES YOU’VE DONE NOTHING WRONG”
It had to be pointed out to me - which worried me - but when Elliot becomes a "random bikini model" in New and Old Flames, and imagines her saying "I'm someone's daughter, you bastard"... isn't that a little patriarchal?
Yes, it is, with the “little” being generous. I’m pretty sure I call myself out on that in one of the later commentaries, but I’ve no idea where.
At the time, I mostly used that because it was an expression I had heard before that seemed to comically fit, and I hadn’t really thought through the implications of it.
Specifically, the issue with an expression like is that it completely ignores the feelings of the person being objectified, and places focus instead on insulting someone else.
This particular example is patriarchal given the implication that it’s the father being insulted, AKA the “head of the household” and all that, but this sort of ignorance of a person’s feelings with only concern for how someone “above” them might feel is universally awful.
As for Elliot, I give him roughly the same excuse I have: He’d heard it used before, it felt applicable, and he didn’t really think it through. Not much of an excuse, “not thinking”, but at least Elliot also has the excuse of youth. I was older than him when I wrote that.
In any case, should I find an opportunity in which it wouldn’t feel forced, I might have an instance of him revisiting that expression and having a “wait a minute” moment of his own.
’According to Buddhism, our fundamental problem is not sin or some moral failing. We suffer because of our ignorance; because we do not understand the actual nature of reality.
The medicine that heals this illness is insight or wisdom, which we can develop through the practice of meditation. Meditation means working with our mind, the source of all we experience and do. Through the practice of meditation we become familiar with all that goes on in our mind, both in its confusion and inherent wakefulness. We tame the upheavals, conflicting emotions, and mistaken views that cause so much suffering for ourselves and others, and come to know the mind’s true nature, which is enlightenment. While many religions practice some form of meditation or contemplation, what’s unique about Buddhist meditation is that it doesn’t involve doing, changing, or creating anything. It’s about stopping and resting - about relaxing at least for a moment Â our endless struggles and cogitations. The basic Buddhist view is that we are fine - perfect even - just the way we really are. The practice is simply letting go - of all the ways we feel we have to improve or solidify ourselves. It’s so simple, yet so profound and so difficult.’
- Melvin McLeod, from the Introduction to The Best Buddhist Writing 2007.
It’s the night before the big homecoming game and you’re pretty sure everyone will be attending. You were never one to voluntarily go to these outings but ever since Baekhyun joined the lacrosse team as his best friend you were obligated to go.
Please support Exo’s comeback even if Yixing isn’t in it. Please support Yixing and show him love even if he isn’t in Exo’s comeback. Please support all of Exo no matter what, and please take the higher road and ignore hate from Anti’s.
Ohhhh flor!!! Forgive me for my ignorance, but what's a demisexual girl??
It’s okay, I still have problems when talking about this because I don’t want to make mistakes like the recent one…
A demisexual is someone who has to have formed previous emotional connections with someone to be physically attracted to that person. Basically, demisexuals aren’t attracted to people’s physical appearances (that does not mean I can’t tell when someone is attractive/good looking, but there is no spike of lust or surge of attraction)… emotional connection is always first,
a demisexual person won’t get turned on by just meeting someone new.
lmao @ fans who are calling clace fans/fans that don’t ship Jace & Maia racist need to gtfo. you’re desensitising a word that should be used in only an appropriate setting, not because you’re offended or whatever by someone’s opinion about a fucking fictional show. the only time you should call a non-jace/maia shipper racist is if the reason they don’t ship it is because Maia’s a POC. other than that you’re just bitter and hypocritical because YOU’RE the one bringing race into it.
the same goes for fans that call clace/sizzy shippers homophobic. if you’re really so worried about these issues, you should look up the true definitions and educate yourself because it’s ignorant to water down words that should be used against actual disgusting people.
i don’t even know why people are getting so upset? in the show Maia specifically told Jace, “don’t think this means anything” and Alisha did an interview where she said it’s not going anywhere either. one minute you say to get over Clary and Simon having sex, and the next you’re jumping over people for not shipping a one night stand that wasn’t even confirmed of leading to sex. i swear this fandom looks at any excuse to complain or fight and desensitise the true importance of words
and sweetie if you want to use important words improperly, pick a new ship name because Jaia is Jordan and Maia :)
Words cannot explain how happy I am that Stordo is the most popular Stephen Strange ship in the DS AO3 tag. Like, I was fully prepared to dejectedly sigh and whine about fandom ignoring how cute Mordo and Strange’s first couple of interactions were and the Ancient One’s “you need each other” speech just to ship him with Palmer (which is a nice second tier ship), but more specifically messing with the narrative to ship Bendy Dick and Marvin’s characters together.
Anyways, thank you, fandom, for not ignoring Strange’s relationship with his black companion just to have J/ohnlock in this ‘verse.
I was wondering if you could do fights with yongguk? I really liked your daniel and minhyun one.
would cross his arms and lean against something while standing up
his face would be neutral for maybe except eyebrow/forehead scrunches
is probably done with you
depending on the scale of the fight he can scowl and show a really pissed face or he’ll be silent and mainly analysing you
not a big fight:
will reassure you that there’s actually nothing to be fighting about calmly
a big fight:
will let you ramble but he probably won’t be actually listening because he’s tired of it as well
doesn’t mean he’s ignorant or anything
he’s just very tired
you’d be screaming at him but yongguk looks too much like an empty shell so you’ll start hitting him while crying
he’ll catch your hands after a while and stare at you with tearful eyes “it hurts i know"
don’t mistaken him as just wanting to end the fight and giving you sugar coated words… he actually means what he says even though he might be too absorbed in his emotions beforehand and didn’t listen to you complain 100%
you’ll just melt into his arms like-
he’ll comfort you in his arms quite tightly and whisper,
“i’m sorry i’ve hurt you”
*i’m trying to make the reactions/drabbles/scenarios/writing more realistic so there’ll sort of be less romance/cringe(for some) unless you say “fluff” when you request it’s gonna be half ‘more’ realistic & other half kawaii!
I AM FUCKING FINALLY DONE WITH THIS SHIT HOLY CRAP
ITS BEEN 76774678143670 YEARS I S2G
But anyways yeah! I finished this, I’ve had the concept in my head for months now, and I finally came up with a finished product! As with almost all of my drawings I’m not a huge fan of the background but I’ll just have to work on developing my skills in that area! Also ignore Mark’s left wrist bending at an impossible angle lol
Pick n choose a couple for minicat? Maybe if you want to
Always weak for Minicat!
send me a ship and I’ll tell you…
who is more likely to hurt the other? You would think Tyler, but do you know how many stunts Mini has pulled that ended with an elbow in Tyler’s face? Do you? who is emotionally stronger? Mini is (until Mario Kart is involved) who is physically stronger? Tyler is! (Especially when Mario Kart is involved) who is more likely to break a bone? Mini is and Tyler wishes he would stop trying to do cartwheels just because of #AskMini. who knows best what to say to upset the other? Tyler does and Mini tries to ignore when he’s mad. who is most likely to apologise first after an argument? Tyler does because he’s the one who usually starts the fights. who treats who’s wounds more often? Craig is a FANTASTIC medic. who is in constant need of comfort? Tyler does, and Craig is a great cuddler when Tyler is feeling down, who gets more jealous? Tyler, hands down. He gets all grumpy and possessive (and Mini finds it adorable.) who’s most likely to walk out on the other? The amount of times Tyler has walked out bc of an argument is amazing. who will propose? Tyler would who has the most difficult parents? Both of their parents are nice, but sometimes Craig’s mom calls him, concerned about the things they say on their youtube channels. who initiates hand-holding when they’re out in public? Craig does, and he’ll swing their arms playfully as they walk and it kills Tyler every time. who hogs the blankets? Tyler does, along with Kino and Archie. There’s hardly enough room in the bed for Craig, sometimes. who gets more sad? Tyler doesn’t really get sad, he gets frustrated. Craig is the one who gets sad but it’s rare. who is better at cheering the other up? They’re both great at cheering the other up, but Tyler can do it a lot easier. who’s the one that playfully slaps the other all the time after they make silly jokes? Craig does! who is more streetwise? Craig has seen some shit in LA. who is more wise? Tyler is! who’s the shyest? Neither of them are shy but Craig is far more outgoing than Tyler. who boasts about the other more? Tyler does in his own way. (”Look at this fucking nerd. What a fucking idiot, look at him being so fucking cute, what a nerd.”) who sits on who’s lap? Craig will sit in Tyler’s lap in a jokingly way, dramatically draping his arms over Tyler’s shoulders. Once he seductively whispered “Tyler lemme smash.” in his ear, and that was when Tyler dumped his ass onto the floor.
I've sent you asks that cover all the rules you ask us to covr but you keep ignoring them? :<
//Stares at the 64 asks in my box, then the 49 drafts saved and weeps into my tired hands.
So, actually, I think I’ve explained the processes before, but here’s why it takes a long time.
1) Close the ask box.
2) Scroll to the bottom and start answering requests from bottom-to-top.
3) Save the answered requests as drafts.
4) Re-open the ask, letting more requests flow in.
5) Post those drafts over a course of time- not the ones in the ask box.
6) Rinse and repeat.
I usually close the ask around every 60 - 80 requests and I post (usually) four a day. [Someone do math for me]
I’m really sorry if it seems like I’m ignoring your requests, but that’s not what’s happening. I’m also sorry if this comes off rude or snappy!! That’s not what my intentions are- I’m just explaining the process.
wait why do you die a little every time some says that vex might be pikes crush lmao?
mostly cause of this
“She dreamed of home and about a certain someone. Another reason she chose to leave is the desire for the one she really loves (which was hinted at in one of the games). Maybe one day she will tell him, if she ever finds the courage. These lyrics perfectly represent the aching a heart can have for someone you know is all wrong for you.” -Pike’s Spotify Playlist (x)
I love the headcanon of wlw!pike and the art and stories and gifsets and everything that comes out of it. but the general tendency to ignore that pike’s crush uses he/him pronouns generally rubs me the wrong way? it’s such a little detail and I know there are plenty of people who just don’t know because they weren’t watching when the first batch of playlists came out but like. idk it’s always felt like people are ignoring her preferences to ship her with someone else
which isn’t to say it’s a bad ship! pike and vex have had so many cute little shipper goggles moments. and y’all know I’ve made stuff for them; you can check my tag and I’ve got fic and aesthetics and whatever. but the assertion that That One Crush is vex just like. really bugs me. idk how else to put it
Hey! Hope you ignore GalaxyBat's rudeness because you made an awesome character shot and just overall drawing :D It wasn't appreciated at all for all the effort and dedication put into it, but your comeback was freaking prefect XD May you have a good day regardless Ash!
Oh my god..Demona I am so sorry anons keep coming up to you and talking trash about Ford. Whether you like him or not, but to the anon, would you quit it already?! God, so you don't forgive him. Move along! Please just ignore that anon demona.
It’s so weird, because I keep getting these asks about how Ford is an a-hole and Stan is underappreciated, from time to time for months. Mostly, it confuses me X_x Like… the show is over, everybody is forgiven by everybody, learned from their mistakes and are now happy. I’m sooo over that already.
