just get it over with!

Jay says:

Hey everyone, I just wanted to bring something to the attention of all you followers.

Recently, it seems to me that TTSG has been getting a lot of rude messages. Not hate - no one ever tells us that this blog is bad, or that we shouldn’t be running this blog, or anything extreme - just messages from followers who are obviously frustrated or angry with us for whatever reason.

I’ve been on here a lot recently due to being off for summer, but seeing all these rude messages - that honestly, could not be interpreted any other way - is it bit disheartening. This blog’s function is to help people - and all that happens when we get rude messages is that any mods who see it feel bad. 

I just want to remind you all that all of the mods are living people, living beings that have emotions, make mistakes, and forget things from time to time. If you want to criticise us, feel free, but you do not have to be rude. We are never intentionally harmful or rude - so we expect the same respect from our followers.

Hope everyone is doing well! Enjoy your day.

They hate me for making them take their medicine.

The Harley Quinn tag is such a mess honestly like I can’t scroll through it without someone trash talking Joker x Harley or trying to make the people who ship it feel like shit lmfao.

Can’t we all just chill down?? Take it down a notch? Like if you ship Harley x Ivy well kudos to you!! Good!! It’s a nice ship and they make a nice couple! Why attack people when you can contribute with positive stuff like fanart or fanfics!! And maybe LET PEOPLE WHO SHIP JOKER X HARLEY DO THE SAME??

I don’t understand why there has to be a constant tug of war between the two ships, neither of them are perfect and yes, both are abusive. That card is old and overused. If we are talking realistically here, poor Harley would do better without either of them. Why? because Poison Ivy will always put nature before Harley. Likewise, The Joker will always put himself before anyone.

Attacking either ship or its fans won’t solve anything. The only thing you’re doing is pissing people off when you bash something they like. People won’t magically agree with you when you call them ‘sick’ or ‘delusional’ in your “call-out posts” lol. 

What I’m trying to say is this: Harley Quinn, The Joker, and Poison Ivy are villains. They are not good people. Expecting any of them to suddenly behave with a moral compass in a relationship is not realistic. It would be completely out of character for them. Both ships are interesting in their own way and hey, each person has their own reason for shipping them. Live and let live.

I love anything Fai-vamp related

It works so well, right? Fai is just shady enough to pull it off.

And by that I mean he’s shady enough to pull of pretty much anything, but still.

the idea of Sakura’s feathers tasting like garlic is disproportionately hilarious to me. not even heavily of garlic, just faint enough that the vamp is like “there’s something wrong but idk what”

I love this. Just a hint of garlic, so they have no idea what’s going on. When they eat it too fast they start feeling really ill but they can’t figure out why, they’re just freaking out going what did I do I didn’t even eat anything bad Is there sunlight coming from somewhere Did I eat something religious by mistake What is it I don’t understand Wha t did I d o

Headcanon: feathers taste like whatever meal Sakura last ate as associated with the memory. So in the memory with Chair-san, it probably tasted like birthday cake.

Memories that taste like birthday cake are the best memories. 

Chair-san would be so touched.

There are more than one kind of vampire in the worlds. Blood sucking vampires is just the standard trope of them but there are so so many more. I did research on them for a fic so …

Oh for sure! The more you look into legends and myths the more incredibly varied they get. Even the legends in just a single place can change hugely over time (and that can be so much fun to investigate) and vampires are spread across so many different cultures and traditions that there will be so many variations that I will never even be aware of. 

It’s so amazing.

tips on dealing with the phandom? i know that there's less people causing drama than not but they have so many fans that the minority is big. i wish we didnt need reminding about stuff like not mentioning phan @vidcon. it makes me sad when people like evan or emma blackery are shitted on by the phandom even though evan hasn't done anything bad and emma is genuinely nice person who is a different and less negative person than she was years ago (aka the twitter stuff). sorry for bothering you :(

i suggest just curling up into a ball and crying forever

tfw you feel guilty about cutting it really close to your shift to call in sick, but you really couldn’t do much about it because you were feeling fine up until you weren’t which was pretty close to when you were supposed to start. 

  • Me:okay we're gonna draw in a cartoon style, got that?
  • Hand:alright so you want me to draw in a realistic style but make it look really shitty?
  • Me:no. cartoon style
  • Hand:...bad anime?
  • Me:no! <i>cartoon</i>
  • Hand:...i really don't know what you want from me here

Edit: this post has raised a few questions, and I’ve tagged further analysis with ‘sandra’s signature’ - please please please check that tag before messaging me about this. Thanks!

I am inspecting the Sandra Bland arrest documentation (available to view here) and I actually… think I have found… some fucked up shit…

Here is a sample of Sandra’s signature from every signed page except for page 7:

I underlined strange spelling errors in the paperwork because I’m not familiar with American police policy and was unsure if documentation would be created anew for each inmate. I’ve enlarged her surname in each of these pictures, because this is where I found a discrepancy on page 7:

For reference, page 7 is the female inmate intake form, which is the form in which Sandra states she is not taking any medication:

compared to the unsigned page 2, in which she states she is taking medication:

It’s kind of hard to spot - and to be honest, if I didn’t deal with contracts on a daily basis at my own job, I might not have spotted it - but that B is not the same on this signature. I noticed a difference in the way the base of the letter was formed, and on closer inspection, it’s apparent that it has been formed in an entirely different way to any of the other signatures in the arrest documentation, which is unusual for a signature as the individual generally writes it the same way each time. That’s, y’know, the point of a signature.

I’ve made some comparisons of my own to show exactly how this signature differs from all the others.

Firstly, here are the other signatures again:

And here is the signature on page 1 compared with the signature on page 7:

Here are my own attempts at replicating each letter B. The first B is a copy of the letter as it appears in the image. The second is an exaggerated depiction of the letter to show how the letter was formed. The arrows on each second picture show the direction of the line I was drawing to form the letter in one fluid moment without having to remove my pen from the page (as you would in a signature).

This is a copy of the letter B as it appears in Sandra’s signature on pages 1, 4, 5, 9 and 10:

And this is a copy of the letter B as it appears in the signature on page 7:

This image shows each individual component / pen stroke required in order to form the letter in each signature:

As you can see, the only stroke that these two letters have in common is the first downward stroke. The second stroke takes the letter in an entirely different direction - Sandra usually forms an upward stroke behind the first one, then comes around to form the two curves, then makes an upward stroke to join the B to the next letter. The signature on page 7, after the initial downward stroke, makes a horizontal and upward stroke to form the two curves, then a downward stroke to form the base of the B and join it to the next one. 

This difference cannot be explained due to normal signature variation. No-one’s signature looks exactly the same each time they sign it, but they write it the same way – they make the same fluid movements with the pen. The letters are formed the way they usually write them, and any apparent variation is simply due to circumstance – pen pressure, paper quality, time etc. This signature is not the same signature as the others. There is no reason for Sandra to form her B this way in one signature only. The only conclusion to be drawn here is that Sandra did not sign her name on page 7. 

I also noticed this funky looking area on the very first page (the booking sheet) which definitely looks like the paperwork has been doctored, but without seeing the actual paperwork, it’s hard to speculate whether the actual arrest template has been amended (ie all booking sheets use this edited template and have this unusual area on them) or whether Sandra’s has been doctored after the fact.

I don’t think it’s uncalled for to ask the Waller County Sheriff Department to explain the inaccuracies in this arrest paperwork, and I strongly suggest that people inspect the documentation themselves to see if anything else is amiss – I know literally nothing about the American police system, so I can only spot errors like this. I don’t know if any of the actual information is inaccurate. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if it was.

Edit 25.07.2015: Another reading that has been presented to me of this signature is as follows:

I do not personally agree with this reading, and view it like this:

but it’s important to keep both ideas in mind and rely on fact rather than suspicion, which is why I’m adding this amendment here.
