Buy Some Stuff At Hot Topic And We'll Reveal What Type Of Witch You Are
Eye of newt and studded shoes.
By Anjali Patel

You got: Witch of the Woods

Your magic is a whimsical sort: playful and flitting and joyous. You charm others easily and oftentimes unknowingly. Though you like to use your powers to joke and entertain, you can also use them to heal and distract. Never underestimate the happiness you bring as an ailment to sorrows. Ruling time: evening; guiding force: fireflies.

ok. this is cool as shit ive gotta tag people. 

@sonorangaara, @embracethesin, @x-everclear, @a-soulless-lime and so many other people just do it i wanna know

I dont even watch the show anymore and i want to be happy for every ship that has a little of w|w representation because we need it…

But damn, i fucking hate Emison… I´m sorry, i know there are lots of people who like it but i just cant stand it… And Emily used to be my favorite so its sad for me…

But yeah, just wanted to write that, dont worry, wont tag it for the ship, thats rude and not cool, enjoy the show i gues…

I was tagged by @missandrogyny to do the following thing: “List the first lines of your last 20 fics. See if there are any patterns. Then tag 10 of your favourite authors!”

I don’t even know if I have 20 wips or fics for this fandom, but let’s see how far we get.

1. It’s two days before Christmas, and Louis Tomlinson’s planner for the holidays has just been torn to shreds so effectively that the pages have become unreadable. (the Holiday AU)

2. Out of all the things Harry had once expected to lie ahead of her in her future, sitting next to Draco Malfoy at the Hogwarts teaching table had never been one of them. (girl!Drarry teacher AU)

3. Trying to force your friends into going to a party with you is never easy, but especially not when you’re an international popstar, your band is on hiatus, and the party in question is an industry party that no one wants to be found dead at. Persuading them once is annoying, persuading them thrice is a nuisance, but Louis never quite had a knack for sticking to the rules, now did he? (Tomlinshaw hiatus fic)

4. Louis is aware of a lot of things about herself - for one, she’s spectacularly bad at maths. (HL, girl direction uni AU) 

5. It starts out as an accident. Louis is nearly jumping out of his skin, is the thing. (HL, the big edging fic)

6. “You’re late,” Harry’s voice sounds through the phone as Zayn hurries out the door one Tuesday morning. (Ziam teacher AU)

7. Louis scratches at the stickers plastered all over her head and chest, fighting the urge to flee. (bright lights, she’s fading)

8. For Louis, a typical Friday night at Hogwarts means that he’s being dragged down to the dungeons by Harry at record speed, a quickie undoubtedly included somewhere in the foreseeable future. (Captive in a Kiss)

9. Louis nervously taps her hands against the bag inside which she’s stashed her camera equipment. Her fingers quiver, though if anyone ever asks, she’ll never admit to it. (girl direction, HL, BBC Earth film crew AU)

10. Staring up at the green and white logo he’s come to despise, Louis bristles. He’s surrounded by tourists scouring the Leidseplein area of Amsterdam and, quite frankly, he’s not amused at all. (HL Amsterdam coffeeshop AU)

11. Funky Payno’s on Saturday night has been an overcrowded mess for as long as Louis can remember. Tonight is no different. (Ache To Know The Song He Sung)

12. The problem with crystal balls, glass balls, or balls in general (heh), was that they tended to fog up your sight and judgment. Mostly your judgment, in all cases. Louis stared at the fortune teller in front of him, his arms crossed, and tried to retrace his steps to figure out how the hell he had ended up here. (Crystal Fighters)

13. The sun is blinding Louis through the rear view mirror as she drives down the M6, the temperature in her Ford Fiesta heating up to almost unbearable levels. (It’s A Long Way Down)

14. Louis doesn’t necessarily enjoy gardening. In fact, if anyone had asked him beforehand, he would’ve said that spending your time on plants that seem to grow whenever Louis turns his back on them is a waste of time, space and money. (Like A Saturated Sunrise)

15. The last show of the North American tour wasn’t supposed to be this draining, Louis thinks. He’s scrolling through Twitter, checking what the fans think they know this time around, and scoffs under his breath at what he finds. (Let Me Be Good For You)

16. Hearing Ed’s voice doesn’t make Louis feel particularly rowdy or anything. (HL, Shape of You lapdance)

17. Marrying Louis, and thus becoming Queens of the North, really should have tipped Harry off that one of them (or, more realistically, both of them) would eventually go into battle and fight for their place in the Seven Kingdoms.  (girl direction, HL, Game of Thrones AU)

18. Harry has slept in Louis’ bed before, and she knows she is always allowed to do so whenever she damn well pleases. There is absolutely no reason for her to feel as guilty about it as she does right now, except that Louis’ bed is softer than it has ever been, sliding underneath her touch, and Harry desperately wants to experience what it feels like against her bare skin.  (girl direction, HL)

19. Zayn’s too self-aware for his own good, and thus he is much too acquianted with his attraction to Liam, knowing it has been a problem he’s been trying to avoid ever since they’d been thrown together in the band. (Ziam, stuck in an elevator)

20. Being friends with a person that you love with everything that you have isn’t an easy feat. Being flatmates with them is even worse, and Louis is currently losing it. (HL pining fic)

I cheated a little because I just picked some drabbles rather than full blown fics, but still. I tag @karamelised @clairdeloune @infinitelymint @alivingfire @conscious–ramblings @harrysgaytour @cherrystreet and @latitta (or to to post as many as you can if you don’t have 20) <3

smightymcsmighterton  asked:

So Amanda, miss high sodium content, how do you feel about consent?

Amanda is drinking enough wine because she is grumpy that she is not answering anything under a cut anymore tonight.

In real life, consent is fucking required no issue, we all agree with this.

In fics, well it is a sticky wicket isn’t? AO3 has the little check mark spot for non-con/rape and it should absolutely be used.

But dub-con is a funny line and what is dub-con for one might not be for another.


But, I do know that the one time a person told me in the comments that they felt a situation warranted a dub-con tag, I listened and added a note, even though I didn’t personally feel it was dub-con. But if a fan notices it, it takes one minute of your time to acknowledge and even if you don’t add it in the central tags you can certainly add a note in the beginning of your story saying: there is a sex scene in here that does involve a situation with people lacking awareness or where consent is not explicit but implied or believed that it would be given in the situation otherwise.

please read, taz fandom

In the recent apology, the McElroys proposed sun elf Taako – a way to have a brown character without risking cultural insensitivity. They seem to think it would be a cop out but in reality, this may be their most smooth path. 

I was harsh on them in my previous posts because this is an important issue to me and many, many other people for a long time.

We know now that they are aware of our concerns and are offering solutions– but we need to let them know what we want from them. 

The problem with the Merle design is that his blackness came off as stereotypical and as tokenism. Had there been more than one character of color in the lead three, this wouldn’t have been an issue. 

Sun elf Taako would help ease unrest about their black Merle being tokenism and answer the call for a brown Taako that has been heavily discussed among POC (especially Mexican fans worried about the implications of his plotline). 

They have clearly thought very hard about their depictions of these characters– They clearly are willing to do more. 

Their decision to make Taako aracial was not the best one, and wasn’t executed that well either, but they thought they did not have the “go for it” they needed from fans to assure them that making their characters people of color was an okay thing to do.

So here it is. It is okay for you to make Taako a sun elf. A dark skinned Merle is perfectly fine and appropriate given that he would not be the only one in the main three who wasn’t pale. 

I understand that it is difficult to find these solutions, and I understand that the link between “colorful” fantasy races and anti semitism was not known by the McElroys at the time. 

I think most of us fans of color in the TAZ community agree that would be a step in the right direction for the McElroys to take, and help us to trust them again. 

We need help from white fans too. So far, it has taken a lot of work for our voices to be seen and heard by the fandom, let alone the McElroys themselves. 

I know not all of you agree with our concerns, or our attitude towards the erasure and ignorance we face within this community, this is something that would end the majority of fights in the TAZ tag. 

You are probably invested in your white designs and headcanons and I do understand, but please consider the impact it has on us knowing that there is only one single canonical character of color in this whole series– and that even she (Lucretia) is drawn white occasionally by fandom. 

If you aren’t willing to alter your designs I understand but I urge you to reblog this, or at the very least consider why you aren’t comfortable with this proposal.

This is something that we have faced in fandoms over and over and we have the opportunity to change it now. So help us do so.

idol: thank you everyone we know we were a disappointment and we could have done better we will try even harder next time sorry™



Thank you so much for not giving up. Because even though it sometimes feels like it, no one’s ever alone. Each and every one of us is a part of the big chaos, and what you do today has an effect tomorrow. It can be hard to say exactly what kind of effect, and you usually can’t see how everything fits together, but the effects of your actions are always there somewhere in the chaos. In a hundred years we may have machines that can predict the effect of every action, but until then, we can trust this: Fear spreads, but fortunately love does too.

Hi there guys, gals and non-binary pals!! I’m Agniya, a soon-to-graduate graphic design college student and freelance artist by trade. 

As many of you already know, Charley and I been dating for almost a year already, but haven’t had a chance to meet in person yet due to money issues (Charley just moved and I’ve been paying for college solely by myself until just now). 

I live in Russia and he is in the USA, more than 4500 miles and an ocean apart. So in order for us to meet, we’ll need to cover expenses such as traveling visa fee, plane tickets, hotel reservations and many others. 

Charley is an aspiring voice actor, you may know him from an improv dubbing project Real-Time Fandub ( @cooldude618 ) and Ace Attorney Anime Abridged ( @aaaaseries ). His voice acting blog is @popelickva and he’s currently taking voice acting commissions. 

He means the world to me and we can’t wait to meet each other, so please consider commissioning either (or even both!) of us. Even if you can’t - reblogs are always appreciated!! ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ 

If you’re interested in my commissions please send me an e-mail here, see more examples in my art tag

Rules are under the cut:

BPD feels.

Lack of emotional permanence. Everytime you feel something, even if its on a daily basis, it’s like its for the first time. “I’ve never hurt this much”, “i can’t remember feeling this angry”…

This is why our breakdowns are ever catastrophic. This is why we always think you’re gonna leave… Because to us, in that moment, it’s ‘never been that bad’… It doesnt matter how self aware you are. And the guilt that comes after? Intolerable. indescribable and completely overwhelming.

so i’m waiting for isak’s last picture to be with Even and then tag this account. and all of us are like wtf??!??! even doesnt have an account. BUT THEN HE DOES BITCHES. and we get to see a season’s worth of random pictures with Isak and the bro squad and artsy shit that Even does. AND WE SEE IT BECAUSE ITS HIS SECRET INSTA

Mikael as an important character in Sana’s story

OK so, after my post remarking how prominent Mikael was in “FY FAEN”, I started to wonder “why?”.

“Why would Mikael go from being barely visible, teasingly so almost, to so ‘in your face’ in the space of one episode?”

It’s not just because Julie is trying to remind us we’ve seen him before: she knows we spend our time on the internet analysing every frame of her show, she’s knows we’re tech-savvy, she knew the minute NRK would update their profiler page we would start looking up the characters and making the connection with Mikael (if we hadn’t already, I’m guessing she knew most of the core fandom would know about Mikael coming back already, the sudden influx of followers on Yousef Hjelde El Mofty’s instagram was indication enough, we also know Mari and Julie regularly look up the SKAM tags to take the pulse of the skamily).

But even if for the non-internet fans, the casual viewers, keeping Mikael gently in the background would have been more than enough to later pull the rug
and go

“Tadaaaa! Even’s best buddy, Mikael! You should have known! He was there all along but you didn’t notice!”

So, to me, it’s not just Julie teasing us about Mikael and his connection to Even.

And that’s when I realised that every season is from the main’s POV, this season is no exception.
And who is becoming more and more prominent in Sana’s POV, while Yousef is progressively seemingly falling from grace? Mikael.

@darker-sooner​ pointed out the frame above to me and how there are two main characters in it: Sana and Mikael (also, in terms of the position of the characters, Sana and Mikael are turned towards each other in this picture…they’re still not really looking at each other though, that will come later)

My reasoning is that, from a directing standpoint, having Mikael progressively take more and more space in the frame equates having him take more and more space in Sana’s life.
For now, she’s not really looking at him. She’s interested in Yousef. Mikael is still background. But even in the background, she’s starting to notice him more.

My theory is that we will start seeing them interact and be in each other’s “backgrounds” more and more.
Maybe next time it will be a “hi” exchanged on camera.
Maybe after that a sentence or two.
I’m not yet certain Mikael will definitely be a love interest for her. But I really feel like he’s going to be an important person in her life in this season.

I feel like straight people really aren’t aware of how deeply rooted homophobia is in society. Putting gay, or any LGBT+, characters in media is just seen as a political statement. Being gay is seen as a political statement. Our lives, ignoring any other factor, is just seen as “liberal bullshit”. We can barely see ourselves in the media everyone consumes, and that’s just one factor that alienates us from society and even being seen as human. Kids today are growing up learning from what they read and watch, and excluding gay characters is one of the largest reasons for homophobia, both internal and external. The media is supposed to reflect reality; characters are meant to be related to. And when we fail to see ourselves in what is supposed to be a parallel to our lives, we fail to see ourselves as human. How are we supposed to be proud when we’ve been alienated our whole lives? We grow up hearing about the murders of people like us, we are treated as the punchline in sitcoms, we hear people complaining about pandering when a character is revealed as gay. From a young age we are taught we aren’t supposed to be treated like people. We grow up learning to hate ourselves. Straight people may think we make a big deal of seeing gay characters in media, but for some people it’s all they have to feel normal. It’s a big step for us if a character is gay. For the people who have grown up to feel disgusted with their attraction, the people who feel dirty, the people who have been kicked out of their homes or lost friends from just being, sometimes seeing a cool character who is respected by others that happens to be gay is all we have to feel better about ourselves.

Another thing I’d like to talk about with gay characters in the media is the big “coming out” stories. The only reason we need these big reveals for a character to be gay is people believe by default everyone is straight. Why? Because that’s what we are taught is normal. It has to be a surprise to be gay. Straight people really have no idea how bad homophobia is just because they don’t have to deal with it. They don’t have to worry about their parents hating them for their sexuality. Once again on the whole coming out thing, is that it’s seen as some big event. One of the first things my straight friends will ask once I reveal I’m gay is, “Do your parents accept you?”. They’re so damn eager to find out if my parents actually treat me like a human being. I’m extremely lucky to have parents who aren’t homophobic and instead only occasionally innocently insensitive. But others? They’re abused, physically and emotionally. There are kids kicked out of their homes. Sometimes kids are even killed, by their PARENTS, just for being themselves. Coming out may be just a story for straight people, but for us it’s putting our future in our hands. We are testing to see if the people who say they love us are going to keep our word. We are going to see if our dearly beloved friends and family will still see us as people. Coming out can be terrifying, as this can be the step that causes children to lose their loved ones. And it’s not their fault, but they grow to believe that. “If I wasn’t gay, they wouldn’t hate me. I’m wrong,” Is what they believe. The only reason we fucking need pride parades and pride month is to convince ourselves we aren’t monsters. The reason we need to constantly say “Wow i’m so glad to be gay” is to convince ourselves that it’s true. We are just trying to fight off all this internalized hate towards ourselves, and yet straight people still speak over us and our issues, which they are causing.

Basically straight people need to calm the fuck down and shut their mouth and let LGBT+ people see themselves in the media, because you have no idea what an impact that can have on people.

As everyone knows Still Star-Crossed has been struggling with ratings and is in danger of not being renewed for a second season. So lets have a trending party on twitter which will let it known how much this show is already loved and that we want a second season. 

Let’s trend on Monday the 19th “StillStarCrossedSeason2″ 

The tweets might be counted as spam if only it includes the hashtag and random letters and numbers. So the best way to trend is to have sentences or words included in the tweet! If the phrase or sentence is repeated however it will only be counted as one so shake it up with each tweet! Also retweets don’t count in adding numbers to the trends. 

Don’t forget to mention writers, producers, actors, and networks in tweets so that they can catch on! Here are some of their twitter handles:


Remember if you tweet these people some of them may even get involved in our trend! Ive seen actors help out before! 

We will be having this trending party start before the show airs! After we also will be live tweeting during the whole new episode and telling our reactions and saying what we like about the show and want more of! (Don’t forget to use #StillStarCrossed and tagging ships and such!)

So let’s come together and show our support for this show! Lets work to get a season two!

(if you need more information contact me or @mindykahling)

story time

i still have a story for y’all, it’s the perfect combination of university + harry potter

i had education class on friday and each week one group presents a teaching method for foreign languages that encourages students to speak and then we try it out in class. yesterday, a group presented the so-called “hot seat” where one or two students sit in front of the class and are assigned a role (e.g. an actor, a character from a book, a politician or whatever) and the class asks them questions and they have to answer in the foreign language. 

it was a friday afternoon so no one was really keen on doing it, but then the group said “we need two people to come up to the front, we’ll hold a mock press conference that takes place after the first gryffindor quidditch match. one of you will be snape, the other harry potter. who wants to do it” and i was like hell yes sign me up, so one other girl and i went up to the front while the others started preparing questions. 

boy, they were not ready. everyone knew the books ofc, but that other girl and i were major harry potter nerds. the first question for me (harry) was “do you think the match was fair” and i was like “how can you call a match fair if alicia spinnet had to carry out a penalty shot not even 30 minutes into the game because flint crashed into me?”. that other girl and i also broke out in a heated discussion about different broom models. it was amazing, and when we were done our teacher was like “did you just read the books or did you write them?”

BUT THE BEST PART is that one dude sitting next to us whispered “you’ve waited 12 years for this, haven’t you” and i swear i love him
