TIME MADE ME CONFIDE IN YOU
SO CONTRIVED WERE THE WORDS YOU SOLD ME
NOW NOTHING CAN SWALLOW
THE FEELING SO SHALLOW INSIDE

sapphicstarships  asked:

I absolutely love everything that you've been posting, and bridging the urban-rural divide to help change the ideologies of rural culture is literally what I'm planning my career around trying to do. My focus is very America-centric, but if you're interested, I can definitely recommend some reading material for you! xx

It’s something I have been thinking about for a long time, in explicit terms since our election in July where my home state elected a stain on Australian politics that just won’t quit: first elected in the mid-90s, then it was racist commentary on Indigenous and Asian Australians, then we exiled her from politics but she’s made a comeback, now it’s Islamophobia. But it’s always been something in the back of my mind, the insular nature of the liberal elite.

I’m from a small regional city, I know “those people.” They’re my extended family and people I grew up with. They make lots of spelling mistakes and questionable comments about minorities on my Facebook feed. But the thing is, they’re not write offs or somehow fundamentally different from “us”. They’re actually regular people like you, like me, who happen to live somewhere else and have a different exposure to political issues. Their local economies work differently and the things that concern them are less relevant to people who live in cities. For years they’ve been listening to the only people bothering to speak to them: the right wing media. And so their culture and their world view is different. It’s easier to recognise someone else’s bubble and liberals are so god damn smug about it, but we live in one too. 

Gleefully actually, until we lose an election and then we all come out crowing about racism and sexism and bigotry. 

All this is to say: that sounds super interesting and yes, do share! I think it’s interesting to compare these things between countries, to see what we can learn from each other. (Again, it’s easier to observe than to exist within the system.) Because it seems to be happening all over the world, but the peculiarities of each country or culture emphasise different aspects of the issue.

David Wong on Cracked has been writing a lot of good stuff: How Half Of America Lost Its F**king Mind is actually far more incisive and less facetious than the title suggests. Also this

If you focus on the racism and ignore the economic anxiety, you’re intentionally blinding yourself to much of the problem. It doesn’t matter how much you hate them; their concerns must be heard and addressed or else this will happen again. Or, as someone on Twitter put it, “I’m begging liberal Democrats to discover a tactic other than wealthy celebrities mugging in a camera about how dumb the GOP is.”

The follow up to the quoted tweet:

I don’t know if it’s just that people from cities don’t know what it’s like to drive through those depressed near-ghost towns? But there are lots and lots of parts of this country (and I’m guessing America too) that are a post office and a pub. One street and one dwindling industry, with double figure youth unemployment and nothing that looks like change coming anytime soon. Of course racism and bigotry and “the good old days” rhetoric takes hold in these areas. It’s hard for urbanites to see because it’s so obvious that so many things are better now. But for certain groups in certain areas, they were good old days. You can’t talk about progress without acknowledging that or it doesn’t mean anything to a great big chunk of the voting population. You’re just not speaking their language.

And yet the liberal response to this is “you just can’t talk to some people” and like, yeah!!! You nailed it buddy. We are not talking to “some people”, “those people”, and they’re not effing voting with us. How thoroughly unsurprising. 

(I hope you don’t mind that I published this! I thought other people could jump in if they are also interested.)

last night I went to the first class in a trick dog course and there was a behaviourist there as well and things weren’t terrible but I have since been feeling all of those human things like shame and thinking I’d been doing everything wrong and letting my dog down

wow…….i can’t wait for domestic sanvers.

i can’t wait for alex to be Nervous because she’s never felt like this, never been able to be with the person who made her feel like this, so she’s going to second guess everything. is she doing this right? is what she just said okay? and maggie? well, maggie probably hasn’t been with someone who makes her feel like this either - who gets her, who understands her, who isn’t going to call her a sociopath for loving her job. maggie’s probably going to have to deal with the impulse to push her away, to keep her at arm’s length. maggie is going to have to actually let alex danvers in. 

Why. Do girls. Have to be.

So pretty.

You want to quit all this and run?

I just love the idea of Branch and Poppy sort-of flirting their whole lives pre-movie. Like Branch obviously had a crush on Poppy but what if she was always dancing around having feelings for him? And Branch is high-key embarrassed and low-key afraid to say anything to her becuase he’s all drab and grey and how could she like him? And Poppy isn’t even sure of her feelings half the time but she always feels drawn to him, and she thinks its becuase she wants to help him but she still gets butterflies in her stomach and smiles more when he’s around. But neither ever do anything about it, and maybe Poppy starts to forget her fluttery feelings and ends up crushing on Creek and Branch sees that and it just breaks his heart so he withdraws further into himself becuase of course she could never love him, right? 

And after the movie Branch finally admits his feelings everything just clicks for Poppy and she asks him why he never said anything and he admits that he didnt think she would want to be with someone like him. And of course Poppy just looses it and goes on a long rant about all of the things she likes about him and how he should have more confidence ect. 

Just ugh this kind of crushing just kills me ok

The Bawson Situation™: a meta that absolutely no one asked for...

I was reading this interview of Kylie’s, and it got me thinking.

Everything she said in there is true, but I just really feel like breaking it down some more because I love to torture myself and suffer.

WARNING: This thing is so long and incredibly overanalyzed and highly cheesy.

do you ever just watch someone and watch their smile and their face and every little thing they do, every little thing about them, and think: holy shit i love you. i am in love with you and everything that you do. you are my entire world and i love you. i can’t stop thinking about how much i love you and i will never be able to stop. i just love you.

Hook’n’Hood & Swan Queen

I keep seeing Hook & Hood being referred to as ‘beards’ and 'gay panic’, but I feel this keeps us from trying to make sense of their roles within the story in regards to Emma & Regina.

Emma and Regina have finally - sort of - come to the point where they always wanted to be. Emma finally found her parents, she’s not alone anymore. Regina is free from Leopold, from Cora’s and Rumple’s manipulations and from the cage of her own mind. They are both trying to figure out who they are in this new reality. They are reverting back to their late teens and trying to relive them, to figure out who they would have been if their lives wouldn’t have been as severely disrupted as they were.

Emma is trying to be the princess she thinks she would have been had she grown up with her parents in the Enchanted Forest. She convinces herself to be the trusting person Snow and Charming would have shown her to be. Suddenly she wears frillier outfits and acts more girly. Hook wears his pirate outfit until right before their first date. She has seen and experienced him in the world she was supposed to grow up in. Even with the wardrobe change, his walk and talk remain old world. In that sense he represents the kind of man she could have been with had she never come to our world.

The date with Hook was very clearly about having that first ball / prom night with her parents. They couldn’t have made that more obvious if they wanted to.

This is what adult Emma Swan dresses like for a date:

This is princess Emma making up for lost time with her parents.

Note that in the last picture her face is falling after she’s kissed Hook at the end of the date. She looks confused and conflicted and puts on a smile and plays the part only after she notices her parents stayed up for her.

Regina meanwhile, it seems, is exploring what life would have been like if she could have run off with Daniel. The concept of one True Love was important to her at the time when Cora killed Daniel. As she mentally puts herself back into that state, this fairy dust approved Robin Hood is her only option. I’ll have to rewatch it, but I think even the pitch of Regina’s voice shifts as she is with Robin. She acts like the teen she didn’t really get to be. The very jaded former evil Queen reverts so far back into naivety as to give her heart to Robin for protection. Something only young Regina would have done. After Marian comes back, Robin and Regina are forced to sneak around. They make love in a vault, Snow has to point out her bra is showing. It’s both reminiscent of teenagers experimenting and of the hidden life she would have led with Daniel. In fact, had she run away with him, thereby insulting the King, her life with Daniel as a fugitive would very much have been like a life with Robin in the forest.

The outfit she wears here, one that ties her to Robin, is the closest she’s ever come to wearing something that also feels like her riding outfit.

They are both exploring the women they didn’t get to be. They are taking back the lives they didn’t get to live. It almost doesn’t matter who these men are personality-wise, because part of these relationships is created in the women’s minds. They both need to go through this, to grow and to learn they can’t erase their pasts. Maybe they’ll even learn they got a head start on the lessons they would learn anyway. Part of them seems to be constantly aware of this relationship not being completely right. They both haven’t actually completely reciprocated and Regina calls it ‘the closest to happy’. Which is not exactly happy.

I do think there is genuine care and attraction between these characters, but the way they are presented to me, they don’t seem like the people Emma & Regina will stay with. They are there for growth and learning and they are meaningful in their own way.

I don’t believe they are results of gay panic, or that they are just the love interests that happen to stick, exactly because of the Swan Queen parallels. We have all noticed the Regina-Hook (dark, villain) and Emma-Robin (light, thief) parallels and the fact that the boyfriends’ names are only one letter apart doesn’t seem like a complete coincidence. Which brings it all back to Swan Queen. Pretty sure I don’t need to repeat why Emma and Regina are right for each other, they do a great job of that themselves in canon. If you need reminders, go drown yourself at sacredbookofswen or ethan-8 ‘s page.

There is one other reason we need Hook’n’Hood to make Swan Queen happen. We are conditioned to believe in the importance of the number three in Fairy Tales. Especially in the West, but also in other cultures. Their respective second relationships just can’t be the final ones, it has got to be the third one. Which is also the reason why the relationships with Lily and Maleficent will only ever be subtextual, otherwise Hook’n’Hood would be bumped up to number three.

And we can’t have that, can we?

Pairing: Regulus Black x Lily Evans; background James Potter x Sirius Black

AU: Modern, non-magical, Tinder AU

Word Count: 2,331

Written For: @reghoulus + @takeupserpents [#regulily gospel crew]


Lily starts dating James Potter in early September.

It lasts three weeks.

She gently breaks up with him after he rearranges his entire class schedule—changing his proposed majorfrom Criminal Justice to Discrete Mathematics in the process—so that he can ‘spend more time with Sirius’.

James seems genuinely upset by the news.

“Is this about Sirius?” he bleats, slouching into the truly ridiculous depths of his burgundy leather couch. “Because the cuddling—it’s, like, super fucking no homo, okay, there are hand checks and a bro code and the bro code clearly states that morning wood is, like, subconscious, right, you can’t blame us for—”

Abruptly, he cuts himself off, squinting at a platinum Crate & Barrel candlestick like it might tell him exactly what was wrong with literally everything he’d just said.

Lily sighs.
