it has the most meaning to me

What concerns me the most about people bashing Holly Conrad

and calling her a possum and piece of shit for standing with Felix against the defamation WSJ did is:

she never approved of those jokes and believes the consequences are fair, all youtubers wanna do is defend him from the harassing from media specially the WSJ

Holly has been really active with PC culture and SJWs

has attended rallies for woman rights and against alt-right

She strongly believes white privilege is real and is something beyond money sometimes it just means being able to not be harassed for your skin color

she Stood for Bernie and Hillary after Bernie was disqualified

Has been even more active since trump won and been using her platform to point out issues like the Muslim ban and supports the ACLU

she stands against the keystone pipeline 

she’s a big advocate for animal rights and shelters animals

Basically Holly stands for a lot of things people bashing her stand for but just because she disagrees with you on ONE topic suddenly all of that is meaningless and i’m sure this sorta applies to other youtubers as well

This is what throwing the terms nazi and nazi apologist too loosely means and you end up alienating people who agree with you on the big majority of the issues

if we keep fragmenting each other while real bigots couldn’t be more together this days we end up losing

Update:

The mp3 site I use has changed their URL… yet again…

Which means that most of my songs are no longer working… yet again…

It’s definitely frustrating but I’m not going to let it stop me from posting music.

I’ll use the new URL for any future songs I post, and I will start on going back and fixing my previous songs.

Thank you guys for being patient and not unfollowing me. I wish this kind of stuff didn’t happen so often. I want everyone to be able to listen to good music.

Thank you for reblogging that post about "doing the thing even though someone else has done it before." I'm not someone who has a lot of reknown and one of the bigger writers for the niche I'm writing for has been making these comments that... probably are meant in fun, but since theirs is so big and mine's just starting it's hard to not get a little down over it. Seeing that post really meant a lot 'cause it reminded me to not get discouraged. So thank you again for the reminder to not give up!

is someone in the fandom being mean about it ????

don’t get discouraged!! believe me, even the most overused ideas can make for the best of fics. i will never get tired of coffee shop aus or stuff like that

whatever you make it will be your own and i’m sure it’ll be great :D

also just for the record, i know how it feels to think up an idea for so long only to see someone write it/draw it first (especially if they’re more popular in the fandom!) it sucks and feels really bad at first, but you just gotta remember that you’re not them and whatever you think of will be personal to you and just as amazing (if not more) :)

What is your opinion of phrases like "open-minded" and "close-minded". I understand why people want to favor open-mindedness over close-mindedness, but Idk, the phrase has been sort of tainted for me. Most people tend to use close-minded to refer to modest or religious people.

To me, the phrase “open-minded” means a willingness to seriously entertain and consider others’ ideas before choosing to accept or reject them. A more open minded person is someone who is willing to give a hearing to a large variety of different ideas and opinions. By contrast, a closed minded person is unwilling to listen to anyone outside of their echo chamber, and is unable to change their mind when proven wrong, due to pride.
I think that was the original meaning of the phrase. I do my best to be an open minded person. It is ironic that a lot of people think that having this quality will necessarily lead you to a set of specific conclusions. That is not only false but completely counter-intuitive to the definition of the word.

I did in fact wind up fostering and then adopting the little black guy; he's Jack now. He's one of the most affectionate cats I've ever owned; he always wants to be with me or my other cat, he always wants to snuggle, he doesn't stop purring. I was incredibly lucky to get him. (I mean, I get that for a lot of people my approach won't work, but I did trust the shelter staff and I'm really glad I did. :D)

and on a different note - as someone who chose to adopt two male cats and has had BOTH of them checked for blockages in the last six months: BOY CATS ARE DESIGNED TO SCARE THE SHIT OUTTA YOU. (One was a “male cat excessively licking his genitals.” he was fine, i just didn’t realize that neutered cats still DID THAT FOR FUN, and one “male cat straining to urinate 4 times in 15 minutes, no urine. THAT was just irritated (and VERY EMPTY) bladder, no blockage, but YIKES I’m paranoid about that.

Jack’s a lucky cat. 

The second cat is also very lucky. He may well have turned into a properly blocked cat if you’d left him too long. I’d always rather someone be paranoid than remorseful. 

I’m Back! (and the Inbox is open...)

Hello guys and dolls!

As you might have noticed, I’ve returned to the prompt-filling world. I’m delighted to be in a position where I can - I am so sorry to those who have been concerned for my wellbeing, and to those who I had been friends with before embarking on what has been a very extended hiatus. I hope you can forgive me, and I hope to be back in touch now. HUGE thank you to those who have already taken the time to welcome me back!!

Of course, this also means that my inbox is open for prompts. There is a backlog from pre-hiatus which I’m working my way through, but please do feel free to prompt! I’ve tagged the fandoms I work most often with, but I’m open to anything. 

There are no limits that I impose on the prompts I receive; any subject, any pairing, any character, any format, any kink, any anything. I never judge, and I will always do my best to fill prompts to the best of my abilities.

Thank you, always, to the amazing supporters and followers of this blog; it means the world.

had no idea you were a christian tbh.

Christians get a bad wrap a lot of the time bc of how hateful they can be. I want to respect peoples wishes by not forcing my religion on them or making them feel uncomfortable. No one will listen if you just try talkin about religion out of no where. The bible says we’re supposed to convert people, but I mean most of the time that won’t really work, so if anything I hope my actions can somehow help with that. By showing how my religion has helped me be a good person though actions alone and not bein that guy whose like “hi friend you got time to learn about our lord and savior.”

this is the most banal BS to get upset over but that olive oil post annoys me in all forms bc no one seems to know jack shit about olive oil. extra virgin just means the first pressing, and the literal mafia likes to dilute evoo with lesser quality pressings bc that shit is easy money. the truth is almost no one can tell the difference unless you are drinking it straight up and that is a bigger problem within itself

let me just cut to the chase. Sportacus has a Number 10 on his shirt, a small detail that most viewers will probably forget. However, it has stated that the Number Ten means something, but I’ll get to that later. Let’s start with the first episode of LazyTown. A brief summary of it is that Stephanie, the main character, moves into LazyTown to visit her uncle, Mayor Milford Meanswell. She meets other kids in the town, Trixie, Stingy, Pixel, and Ziggy, who’s personalities are identical to their name. Robbie Rotten is also there in his secret lair, keep note of this, He looks around the town to see weeds, an abandoned basketball court, and other very polluted things. He seems content about this, proclaiming he will keep LazyTown the laziest town on the world. Later on, Stephanie talks to her uncle about how none of the kids want to go outside to play. Her uncle then tells her that there was a man with a Number 9 on his shirt, who made kids active. Wait, 9? But Sportacus has Number 10 on his shirt! Was this careless mistake? Or something more different? Stephanie makes a letter to said person, and goes to the mailbox to send it. She finds a cork inside the tube and tries pulling it out. Robbie is then shown stopping in his tracks and is visibly distraught about this, meaning he knows what is going to happen when she sends that letter. She pulls the cork out and puts the tube like envelope into the pipe, and it soon gets launched into the sky, and is received by Sportacus. Sportacus jumps down to meet Stephanie, she asks him if he is Number 9 and he responds with that he is Number 10. Robbie than says “Another one?” Confirming the fact that there was a Number 9, and Robbie fought him aswell. Think about it, at the start of the episode Robbie already has his signature secret lair. However, he doesn’t use it for evil, he doesn’t terrorize the citizens of LazyTown, he likes the citizens how they are, lazy. So, why would he have this lair, unless he had to use it against Number 9? Then the question remains, where is Number 9? Did he leave? Did he accomplish his goal, move away and then Robbie made it lazy again? Or did Robbie Rotten beat Number 9? Think about it, why would he use the schemes he uses on Sportacus and friends if they didn’t prove successful against Number 9? So we got that Robbie Rotten beat Number 9 and made LazyTown lazy, but that also strikes up another question. Are there more numbers? Are Number 9 and Sportacus apart of a group that ride blimps and help make kids exercise and play outside? Now are you ready for the biggest stretch in this entire theory? Robbie Rotten was the first Sportacus-like member of this group. Why so? Well Robbie admits it himself. In a little known song called “We Are Number One.

Antisepticeye

So I said it in the vlog earlier but seriously, thank you all so much for being the coolest, most dedicated community around. You’re all so engaged and got so incredibly involved and invested in this whole antisepticeye thing that it went way beyond my expectations. I mean I had hoped people would get involved the way they did but not to the level it has become. It’s completely blown me away and I’m so incredibly proud and honoured to be part of this community. 

There is so much fanart relating to Antisepticeye, so many theories and discussions, people taking on their own “Dark forms” and just overall discussion that I can’t possibly get to all of it and I’m sorry for that. I really wish I could because and I will try my best, I adore reading all the stuff people had to say about it. I really mean it when I say I sat here refreshing constantly to see what people were saying and the references they caught. It’s been amazing. 

The biggest part of all this that I love though is how everyone came together. The community banded together and enjoyed something and had fun. You were all so encouraging and interactive with each other trying to figure it all out and it made me so incredibly happy to see. I’m very proud of you all.

So I’ll say it again, THANK YOU! For being part of this, helping create it in the first place, letting me take a character you all made and incorporate it into the channel and allowing me to do stuff like this and just have fun. It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done on youtube and I had an absolute blast all month with it :)

Okay, but what I love most about this scene is how Victor’s reaction has only one interpretation. It is unambiguous and agreed upon by 99.9% of the fandom.

Victor doesn’t say anything in the scene but just by his expression, his blush and his gasp we all understand what is happening within him.

Because the only thing that he can be experiencing at that moment is love. Whether it is infatuation or attraction or a crush or just an incredible awareness of Yuuri’s cuteness, there is love involved.

And literally nothing else makes sense here.

Some people can deny many things in this show but this one scene, this emotion that appears in Victor’s face is real and undeniable.

That’s what I love most about that scene. It shows something so profound and true in under five seconds and it is clear to the viewer without any additional explanations.

And that is not only beautiful. That shows mastery in the art of direction.

The signs based on my experiences with them

Netflix Customer Service Live Chat:
  • Me: I would like for Netflix to pick up a show that has been recently cancelled and I needed to ask someone how to most effectively go about doing that.
  • Gabby, Netflix Representative: Oh, you mean Girl Meets World?
  • I AM NOT SHITTING YOU.
  • (Edit: She then continued to tell me that they hear us, and to keep requesting on the website, it helps a lot and they are considering investing)

Yuuri: He certainly might not know it, but Viktor is the most important person in my life. He helps me in so many different ways, but just knowing he has my back and supports me is all I could ever ask for. But I won’t lie, I love him to the moon and back, and I only want the best for him.

[ OOC-Tan: Holy cow, you guys just keep coming! I have a lot of asks to do, but I’m finally able to work on them! Thank you so much for your continued support!! It means the world to me! ]

my friend: Why do you think Lance asked Keith, “Is the princess ‘with you’ with you?”

me internally: In animation, every action, every line of dialogue, every scene is planned out and has a purpose. You can’t just add a scene without it meaning something later on, or else it would be a waste. It has already been established that Allura is not interested in Lance, and in season 2 Lance really doesn’t pay her that much romantic attention. In fact, most of the romantic tropes used in animation and entertainment, in general, are used with Lance and Keith. And throughout the seasons they have hinted at Lance and Keith’s bond with their ‘rivalry’ and then making a good team and then being the two colors that make purple, which is a prominent color in the show. Lance’s “’with you’ with you?” line wouldn’t really make sense if he was asking if Allura was dating Keith because at this point he wouldn’t care about Allura being with someone, but it would make sense if Lance was subtly asking if Keith was single because he has a crush on Keith.  Lance’s interest in Keith has been stated to have begun at the Garrison, and he is constantly inserting himself between Keith and others and always trying to get Keith’s attention somehow. This and the fact that a storyline about Lance’s insecurity may hint as him feeling as if he is insecure not only in his abilities as part of the team, but confusion about his sexuality and insecurity about crushing on someone who he sees as one of the most talented people he’s ever known. Therefore, asking if Keith is dating Allura is a sign of his interest in Keith and a subtle hint at their future storyline(s)/interactions and Lance’s own storyline.

me externally: lol who knows

Remembering that Genji can’t eat anything gives whole new context for the Valentines lines with Mercy.

I mean, she built his body.  And they’ve known each other for 5 years at least.  She has to know that he can’t eat the chocolates she’s buying him.

So, hear me out, what if the whole exchange is a running joke between them?   Like, every year at Valentines, Mercy goes out buys Genji the best, most expensive, most high quality Swiss chocolates…that he can’t eat.  Meanwhile, Genji finds the cheapest, most shoddy box of dollar store chocolates he can find…for a Swiss woman with incredibly high standards.

Thoughts on Yuri!!! on Ice Ep. 9

***super long post ahead with many screenshots***

I usually post tons of screenshots, GIFs and sometimes cuts of the skaters’ program after watching each episode of Yuri!!! on Ice, but not this time.

To be perfectly honest, I had to sit down for a few minutes to calm myself before I can even start typing here. This episode is just…too powerful for me to simply sit back and enjoy like I do for most anime I have watched and am watching.

I’m not sure whether I have already sorted my thoughts enough to write this post, but I hope I can get my message across.

First of all, let’s start from this…

While this scene really made me feel sad, honestly I didn’t think twice about it.

I mean, we have seen how far Yuuri and Viktor’s relationship has developed in the last eight episodes, so I thought Viktor’s words and act here were as expected. We have probably seen many similar scenes in other romance stories, so this wasn’t surprising for me.

Furthermore, throughout this episode, Yuuri seems pretty calm - still quite nervous, but at least much calmer than in Episode 7. He warmed up as usual, he quietly watched other skaters’ programs, even commenting on Yurio’s stunning performance.

I did feel worried when he flubbed his jumps during “Yuri on Ice”, especially when he only placed third since we all know there’s no way JJ will mess up. Thankfully he managed to get into the final (poor Michele), but what changed my mind completely was when I saw this scene.

I didn’t get it at first. I thought he was just thanking Yakov for being there with him in place of Viktor. And when he said “Viktor will go back to Russia soon”, I thought it means Viktor will come back there after checking on Makkachin’s condition.

Also, when he started hugging everybody afterwards I just laughed it off because honestly it looks funny.

But that wasn’t it. After watching this episode until the end, I gradually started to get that since the first scene, this episode was trying to tell us something.
