She runs into him again before the mission is over, tall and broad and wearing a star upon his chest, the same as the one on his shield, the same as the ones on her uniform. (x)

A little something for the South Asian wlw who are often forgotten.

To Tamil, Telugu, Malayali, Bengali, Kannadigas, Tulu, Maldivian, Bhutanese, Chhetri, Magar, Tharu, Tamang, Indo-Carribean, multiracial and other desi wlw. Desi wlw who are black.

To those who can’t relate to white wlw’s experiences, who have never been able to see their situations portrayed anywhere. To those who feel like there’ll never be any hope for them, due to factors like the homophobia and misogyny in south Asian communities or institutions like arranged marriage. Who feel like they cannot talk about their struggles in fear of having them reflect on their culture.

To the desi wlw who don’t have any role models to look up to, who are clueless about what to do or whether or not they will even have a future for themselves. To those who are scared about being shunned from their communities and families. To those who aren’t even allowed to love men and are expected to marry a stranger, making loving a woman seem impossible.

It can be immensely isolating when you don’t see yourself anywhere or when you’re never given the opportunity to be heard. But make no mistake, our stories are diverse and are worth telling. We have each other, we have other wlwoc/wlw who can relate to us and we can get through this together.

“She devoted her life’s energy to creating the character of Joan Crawford. Always beneath that is Lucille LeSueur, and that became what was so fascinating to play, whether it was just under the surface, just in a gesture or a glance behind the eyes or whatever, that character was always there….She was a great beauty, but she really worked hard. I don’t know anybody that worked harder than Joan Crawford. To be Joan Crawford and to sustain this career and to create this kind of iconic mythology? There’s a lot to admire about her, especially when you think about what she had to overcome, where she came from….I’ve never seen her as being monstrous at all. We did all that research–I read the four biographies, her own books, and hundreds of interviews–and no one ever said anything but kind things about her. I don’t want to comment on mothers and daughters [and the relationship described in Mommie Dearest], because within any family there’s always a part of a relationship that no one outside can ever understand. But from everything I’ve read, it seems impossible that the woman was as monstrous as she was made out to be.“ –Jessica Lange

As a native Italian, allow me to tell you something about Nico Di Angelo

I see a lot of non-Italian fans headcanoning Nico’s real name as Nicholas or Nicolas or stuff like that, which I would say is very unlikely for several reasons.
First of all, Nicholas is an English name and no Italian boy is named that in modern days, nevermind in the past.
More important, when Nico was born Italy was at the dawn of fascism. Benito Mussolini, who became dictator in 1925, initiated a process called “italianizzazione”: everything had to be Italian, so foreign words and names were translated, sometimes using neologisms (for example: Buenos Aires became Buonaria and Washington became Vosintone). With that said, it’s impossible that a fascist woman (fascism was very popular, so Maria Di Angelo was probably fascist) would have given her only son an English name.
Moreover, I know Rick Riordan tweeted that Nico Di Angelo is his full name, but since I’m in the mood to be extremely annoying I’ll add a side note: Nico is a nickname, I don’t think it’s used as a full name anywhere in Italy.
So if you’re going to headcanon his full name, options may be:

  • Nicola (my personal favorite)
  • Nicolò or Niccolò (a more popular variation of Nicola)
  • Nicodemo (a very old school one, nobody is called that anymore, but remember that Nico is over 80)

Lastly, since appearantly trans!Nico is a thing, if you’re looking for a female name that uses Nico as a nickname, Nicoletta is probably the best option.

That’s all, and feel free to tell me if my English sucks. Peace from Italy

“Jensen! You missed the turn,” you scolded as Jensen blew past your street and continued into town.

“No I didn’t,” Jensen merely replied, making your blood boil. You knew he had wanted the two of you to go out on your birthday and make some big deal out of you turning 30. You had steadfastly refused. It was just another birthday and you hated all the fuss. You didn’t wanna be the center of attention all night long. Your idea of a perfect birthday was sitting in front of the tv, eating pizza with your boyfriend. You knew Jensen knew that and you couldn’t believe he didn’t wanna accept it.  

“Don’t make me jump out of a moving car, Jensen. Take me home,” you warned him, just enough anger in your voice for him to nervously shift in his seat.

“You don’t wanna go home, babe,” he answered you in a slightly shaky voice.

NO WAIT I’M NOT DONE.

I MIGHT NEVER BE DONE.

THE THING ABOUT CARRIE FISHER IS THAT SHE GAVE NO FUCKS

BECAUSE SHE FUCKING CARED FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND TRIED TO MEET THE IMPOSSIBLE STANDARDS SET FOR WOMEN 

WHICH ARE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANY WOMAN TO MEET MUCH LESS ANYONE STRUGGLING WITH A MENTAL ILLNESS

AND SHE WAS FABULOUS BEFORE SHE STOPPED GIVING A FUCK

BUT AFTER SHE BROKE, AFTER ALL HER FUCKS WERE EXPENDED AND SHE COULD NOT GIVE A EVEN ONE MORE

THAT IS WHEN SHE BECAME OUR QUEEN.

THAT’S A TRIAL BY FIRE AND MY GOD MOST OF US NEVER EVEN GET HALF AS FAR THROUGH IT AS SHE DID BUT SHE FUCKING MADE IT AND THEN REIGNED, EVEN THOUGH EVERY SINGLE DAY WAS A STRUGGLE AND THE ESTABLISHMENT TRIED TO EAT HER FOR IT.

SHE STOOD UP AND SAID FUCK OFF, THIS IS MY LIFE AND THIS IS HOW I NEED TO LIVE IT, AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, THERE’S THE DOOR DON’T LET IT HIT YOUR ASS ON THE WAY OUT

SHE COULD HAVE BEEN BITTER

SHE HAD EVERY RIGHT TO BE

BUT INSTEAD OF SHUTTING DOWN AND LOCKING HERSELF UP

SHE OPENED HER ARMS AND SAID “FUCK THESE HATERS, COME SIT WITH ME AND MY DOG AND MY DOG’S UNREASONABLY LARGE AND FABULOUS TONGUE.”

I GUESS WHAT IT BOILS DOWN TO IS THIS:

I LOVED HER WHEN I WAS A SCABBY-KNEED LITTLE GIRL BECAUSE SHE HAD FANCY HAIR AND COULD RESCUE HERSELF

I LOVE HER NOW FOR THE SAME FUCKING REASONS.

I hope they the people boycotting Wonder Woman because of Gal Gadot at least also check the military background of every major American actor and boycott their movies accordingly to what they discover :/

yea hmmmm it’s almost like the standards for a Jewish woman are impossibly more strict and harsh than white people’s :////

Love is more than a feeling. It’s an action. I’ve have a disability. It’s hereditary. For the longest time I refused to entertain the idea of marriage. I couldn’t imagine being a burden and making someone care for me. Every time I thought about having kids I broke out into tears because I couldn’t imagine having a child and having to watch the disappointment on their face when they could no longer throw a football or run or walk without crutches. Two things changed my mind. The first is my parents. My dad is the hardest worker I know despite the fact that he should be in wheelchair. And my mom does an impossible task every day by helping him even after being weak from the effects of overcoming stage 4 cancer. The second is my wife. I met an impossible woman, a woman that I don’t deserve and that I thank God for every day. Her heart is impossibly large and wonderfully contagious. She shows me she loves me by her actions daily. I have never spoken about this publicly, I’ve only ever told it to a hand full of people in my life. But this video resonated with me so much and I wanted to share it. People who love you will try to push you away in situations like these so you won’t have to share in their pain. It can be so frustrating to see people you love in pain and not be able to fix what’s wrong with them. You might not be able to “fix” us, but if you love us you will do far more good than “fixing” us ever could.

“No one has ever gotten past Lasciva’s Cove. The temptations are impossible for any man, woman, or anything in between to get past. Sirens and succubi alike flank every corner.”

“Well…I wasn’t going to bring this up but…I think now would be a good time to mention I’m asexual?”
