its the truth and you know it

i’ve never watched sherlock and i don’t think i exactly plan to, but

if you’re watching the show for a gay couple or lgbt representation, don’t watch it. obviously, shipping happens, but if you’re mad bc they won’t make your ship happen, just don’t watch the show. tv is meant to tell a story and entertain us - if all you care about is one ship, you shouldn’t be watching the show.

If its any comfort to you (thelarrative), when i was a larrie i messaged you incessantly just like this larrie is and being overally accusative, thinking i knew it all, like "ha! i know this man is faking a baby how can you be so oblivious"; but the truth is your blog and answers were a turning point for me, a coming of age kind of thing, and i hope it's this larrie's turn too.


hello everyone!! as some of you may have noticed, this blog has been running pretty slow lately. 

the truth is that while we both very much love this blog and love running it, the two of us are going through some hard times in our lives, and its very mentally draining on the both of us. we just dont have the energy to be constantly posting things on to here. we’re still trying our best to reblog some stuff every once in a while, but i hope you can all understand why we’ve been quiet lately!

also we’re both lazy as fuck but idk maybe thats the depression talking lmao

I really do hate when people bend the truth or outright lie in some misguided attempt to help marginalized people or bring attention to a serious issue that needs to be confronted with regards to marginalized groups. Like, there’s so much real shit to pull from, why fake it?? Why delegitimize yourself that and ultimately diminish whatever change you’re trying to affect by not being upfront and truthful.

People give me advice like I’m an idiot with no self awareness, but the truth is, I know what I need to do. But that doesn’t make it any easier.

one of the reasons mental illness sucks so fucking much is because people around you can literally tell you again and again that they love you, that they think you’re cool and funny, that they support you in every way, that you’re talented or intelligent, and no matter how many times they say it you’ll always cringe and shake your head and say “no, no i’m not, really” but the SECOND someone says one bad thing about you, even just once. You believe it completely. 

Things Mike Pence Heard at Hamilton

- “Immigrants: we get the job done!”

- “There is no more status quo. But the sun comes up and the world still spins.”

- “We are engaged in a battle for our nation’s very soul”

- “I’ve been reading ‘Common Sense’ by Thomas Payne. Some men say that I’m intense, or I’m insane. You want a revolution? I want a revelation! So listen to my declaration: 'We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal,’ and when I meet Thomas Jefferson (work!) I'mma compel him to include WOMEN in the sequel!”

- “History has its eyes on you”

- “A civics lesson from a slaver. Hey neighbor: your debts are paid cuz you don’t pay for labor. 'We plant seeds in the South. We create.’ Yeah. Keep ranting. We know who’s really doing the planting.”

- “But when all is said and all is done, Jefferson has beliefs. Burr has none.”

- “Winning was easy, young man. Governing’s harder.”

I know my feelings were supposed to go away, but the truth is that I always found myself falling for that smile, for those eyes, for that voice, for you, over and over and over again, every time I saw you, long after I thought I’d have moved on. My love for you took on a life of its own, and it would inhale every time you took my breath away.

You knocked me sideways
When you said that you were leaving.
You knocked me over
When you cried and told the truth.
And you left me speechless
The secrets you’ve been keeping
You’re running now, but someone’s chasing you
And you bought a ticket
But you don’t know where you’re going
And you won’t tell me
For fear I’ll follow soon
And you’re tryin’ to save me
From your past of bad decisions
But my decision’s always gonna be
To follow you (To follow you)

Happy (late) New Year!!!

honestly the immediate period before, during, and after james and lily’s death is really fucked up. jk rowling is like yeah sirius thought remus was a spy and apparently james and lily thought so too so they all decided not to tell him that peter was their secret keeper instead of sirius and this whole time peter is fucking them over and then fucks sirius over to the point where he’s literally imprisoned for peter’s fuckery and remus has no fucking clue and comes home to two of his best friends murdered by voldemort, their orphaned son whisked away by fucking dumbledore, since apparently remus would believe that sirius betrayed james and lily, and not only that but sirius also killed peter and left one single finger??

and he spends TWELVE YEARS thinking this is the truth. until one day james and lily’s son says he saw peter pettigrew on the map and remus’ entire reality turns on its axis. [sirius voice] the map never lies.

and you know what’s even more fucked up? even though better things happen after this, the ending is always the same: tragedy. he loses sirius again, and this time for real. there’s no coming back. right in front of harry. and he can’t even bury sirius because there’s no body, and he can’t even get sirius exonerated for peter’s crimes. there’s not even a canon memorial for sirius black.

there’s nothing.

and then he falls in love and has a child and you think finally, finally maybe this man can have his sliver of happiness. he has suffered for so long…

im not saying it was a wrong decision to kill him off. im just saying all of this is fucked up. it’s just the icing on the cake that everything went so terribly wrong on all hallows’ eve, a night where sometimes people dress up as werewolves, of all things. but they can take their costumes off afterwards. remus, though? this is his life, every day. it’s ironic and tragic and im bitter as hell.

This quote was giving to me from my meditation teacher Betty Jones…

This is a good framing for where we find ourselves and how we should think about this time we are living in.

“Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we have been waiting for.” — Hopi elders

I did a search on the quote and found it in the body of a longer quote made by a Hopi elder in 2011. This is the quote in its entirety. Keep the faith and protect yo heart.

“You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you
must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are
things to be considered… .
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for your leader.
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, "This could be a
good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and
swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on
to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer
greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let
go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes
open, and our heads above the water.
And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in
history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For
the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.
The time of the one wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word 'struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All
that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
Hopi Elders Prophesy
To my fellow swimmers:
here is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift,
that there are those who will be afraid,
who will try to hold on to the shore,
they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore,
push off into the middle of the river,
and keep our heads above water.
And I say see who is there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history we are to take nothing personally,
least of all ourselves, for the moment we do,
our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves.
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
For we are the ones we have been waiting for.”

This quote was carried on the same page.

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do,
I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do.”
—Edward Everett Hale

“You’re too young to know true heartbreak,” they say. The cold hard truth is that I do know heartbreak. I felt it in my heart first after seeing you holding her hand. I felt it make it up to my eyes as the watered when she made you laugh like I used to do. It made it out to the world with my short gasps for air as you pull her closer to you. And it finally made its way to my knees, as I tragically fall to the floor mourning our lost love.
—  Excerpt from a book I will never write #1173

I was sketching out a thing and ended up really liking how it came out, but I expect I’ll revisit/redraw this later. I just wanted to show the rough version.

The Kirin Tor symbol always kind of struck me as a “third eye”. 

lukas, after he's out
  • lukas: *takes a deep breath*
  • lukas: i lo-
  • anyone who has spent five seconds around him ever: yes, you love philip, we know, you love philip so much, he's the light of your life, you love him so much, you just love philip, we KNOW , you love philip you fucking love philip ok we know, we get it, YOU LOVE PHILIP. WE GET IT.

Sooo… I just smacked myself with a really, really sad Dean/Cas headcanon.

Ketch: You, Halo. Do you sense I’m lying?

Castiel: My name is Castiel. And… no. But the truth can be situational.
12x08 LOTUS

So this makes it canon that Cas can sense lies – or at least, when humans are lying. This doesn’t mean he knows what the truth is, just when something is a lie.

And where did many people suspect a lie, or at least suspect something that may have not been 100% truth?

You’re our brother, Cas. I want you to know that.

And if all Cas can detect is deception… well. If, right there, he could sense Dean was lying, but he didn’t know why or what the truth is? OUCH. And it adds into to the ball of bad emotions and being stuck on the outside that Cas has been feeling. Maybe it’s more than just ‘actions speak louder than words.’

Maybe it’s because Dean lied, and Cas knows it. He just doesn’t know what the truth is.

(I’m actually not TOTALLY sold on this as I still firmly think that Dean believes he was trying to speak for both he and Sam, so that wouldn’t have necessarily been a lie… but it’s definitely a half-truth. So then the question is - how much of a lie does something have to be in order for Cas to sense a lie?)
