Inside Choices: Growing from “Rant Ahead, Be Aware”

While looking through Tumblr posts this week, one of the longer response posts caught my eye. The post was well written and though titled “Rant ahead”, was a well reasoned commentary on things that bother the post’s author. Since the post brought up many points that other players have also expressed, I thought replying as a blog post so everyone has a chance to see the response would be appropriate.

Thank you to lauraotaku2234 both for your thoughts and for permission to share it in our blog. The post is bolded below.

From the Tumblr post “Rant ahead, be aware”:

I just love how Pixelberry reblogs fanart and nice messages about the game. But when fans are actually pointing out errors and mistake the game has done… they just ignore it. They have decided to close a bubble to them.

This is a very fair point. Our team really does read a lot of the feedback generated by our players. But even though we may be working on fixes or things that address the critiques, most of the time people on our  team don’t give a firm answer for fear of making a situation worse or suggesting something that might end up not happening in the future. Because I lead the team, I have a lot more latitude in responding to critiques, but I’ve been focused on a lot of different projects which means that I haven’t responded as often as I should.

I hope this post helps to provide some more light on many of the below issues.

Now, there is a difference between the: “We want more diamond options” and the “James situation”. Here’s why:

On the diamond thing, I doubt PB will change that, mainly because they get their money from us buying diamonds, the more options we get, the least money they make. So its understandable. Yet, the money they make is supposedly to get better staff and equipment so the game can improve and be better. A year has already passed and I still can’t find what the improvement is or was.

You’re correct, it is harder for us to change the diamond economy. We have been experimenting with different options that try to balance our ability with making money and giving players a better experience. As a player, myself, I totally get the complaints. I don’t have anything new to announce right now, but we are working on different features and will see if things like rewarding diamonds for watching ads will help in providing that balance.

It also makes sense that you and other players can’t find what improvements have been made. But I’m hoping that is partially because we’ve been slowly building and rolling out improvements over time and that you’ve gotten used to some of those changes.

One of our most popular requests is launching more weekly content. And in the past year, the biggest change we’ve made by far is expanding from 3 books at launch to a much more robust library. When we first launched Choices, we had about 10 people writing with two new chapters per week. We now have over 30 writers and sometimes release as many as 6 new chapters a week with other new series in production, too. Along with all these writers, we’ve added more artists, producers, testers, and other roles to increasing our capacity for weekly storytelling.

It’s something you can’t see, but when I walk through the doors into our offices, I love hearing the buzz in our office and seeing all the people working together on Choices. And when all the writers assemble for their weekly “Writer’s Meeting,” I still get the chills seeing so many writers gathered around a long table talking about how they can improve their craft together.

So, I hope you really do believe we’ve been investing a lot in growing our team because we treat the future of Choices very seriously.

(As an aside, some people on the team have suggested maybe doing a Fan meet-up in the office - in the Bay Area in California - or maybe sending writers to different book conferences next year, so that maybe some of you can see that growth in person, too.)

Now… The James thing. PB common, you can do better than that. I wouldn’t be upset if you they gave us an actual reason as of why. Also, we need an explanation about what “other characters” means. Will the rest of the character change too? Will it only be a few one’s? I’m replaying every single finished book to find what other faces may have been changed. It has to be done, I don’t want to play The Royal Romance to find you changed Hana’s character appearance just… because.

You are right. We should have told you about the change ahead of time. Also, I wish I could go into more details about the change, but in my previous post, I tried to say as much about why we made the change as I already could. We know this really upset many of you. We understand. It’s our bad for disappointing you.

In regards to “other characters”, we have not rolled out the changes yet, but our Tumblr fandom is pretty clued into what other characters will likely be changed. We will make specific references to those characters when it happens. We will not be changing any other Love Interests (LIs), so Hana and others are safe.

The only book I’m not replaying is ROE, why? Because is a waste to my keys and time. The storyline got old really fast. It was actually a really good story, and I remember the First Book Finale actually left people with their mouths open, but they ruined it when they brought a third book, and now a fourth. I mean, it’s a plot that can be solved with a Snap. Adding more tasks as a way of length[en]ing the story was a stupid move and only brought fans rage. Most fans agree with me when I say: Endless Summer should have as many books as The Freshman, The Crown and The Flame shouldn’t have ended in the third book, The Haunting of Braidwood Manor should’ve been longer, Most Wanted deserves a second book, and even tho The Freshman is my favorite series, The Sophomore plot isn’t going anywhere, it’s like Love Hacks at its beginnings and it’s tiring.

As I mentioned before, Most Wanted 2 must happen. It’s the book every fan is waiting for, including me. It has an amazing storyline with amazing characters, yet, they decided to shut it out, and even erase it from their AppStore/PlayStore menu.

It’s pretty clear that much of the Tumblr fandom has the least love for Rules of Engagement (ROE.) But we have other fan groups and other people who really like this series. Just as we actively try to promote diversity in our characters, we do try to balance the resources we put into genres for various fandoms and individuals playing through our stories. We aim to have something for everyone, and all of our writers pour their hearts into everything they work on.

As the RoE series wrapped up, the writers of ROE moved on to a “mini-book” that would tie the series up in the right way. The book will probably finish too quickly for fans of ROE and not fast enough for fans of other series, but this book length fit the purposes of the story arc. Also because we have such a wide variety of writers, each with their unique storytelling talents and skills, continuing a romance series such as RoE doesn’t actually affect some Tumblr fandom favorites, like Endless Summer or Most Wanted.

Part of what we’re trying to do with Choices is to try new series and genres which is why we sometimes will end, or pause a series faster than fans want so that we can try new things. Most Wanted didn’t do as well financially as our other two launch series, so we moved that team onto Endless Summer and LoveHacks, where they could excel at leading new projects. One of those writers, Andrew, has moved onto managing another project. But Luke continues to be a part of Book 2 and 3 of Endless Summer (which we are aiming to start releasing in December.) And Owen is working on a secret new project, now that LoveHacks has completed!

I really do hope and think that when it makes sense, we will start work on Most Wanted 2. But it will be a matter of the right timing in terms of having one or more of the original team ready and balancing the start of Most Wanted 2 versus other new series we want to start. Dave and Sam will eventually return.

I respect Pixelberry as a company a lot. But with these changes and empty storylines, I just wonder where the old Pixelberry went. It seems like they just ran out of imagination to make stories, so they just continue old ones and create new ones with similar plots but shorter books that in the end everyone likes.

Thank you for respecting us. It’s clear in the thoughtfulness of your “rant” and in the praises and critiques of our fandom. Even when you think we’re ignoring you, we hear many, many of the messages. And I admit that some of the critiques really hurt and sometimes the ones that hurt the most are the ones that ring the most true. But we also recognize the strength of the critiques often is also a measure of how much our fandom cares.

I really, truly hope that as we release new chapters, books, and series that you’ll see that the creative wells of our teams has not run dry. And when a writer is being blocked, a designer is confused by the path forward, or a tester doesn’t know how to reproduce a problem, the creativity of the fandom often breaks that block, clears the path, and helps us keep moving forward. Whether it’s beautiful art, all the “Jomes” jokes, Brian’s Ask Blogs, the many forms of Cetus, faceclaims (yes, it’s okay to keep doing them), and other posts, your creativity motivates us.

As you continue to share on Tumblr or Facebook or Twitter or Instagram, we’ll continue reading, digesting, and modifying our plans. But if you have specific problems or want to ensure we hear what you have to say, I encourage you to contact us directly via our in-game Help. Or if the game is down, reach out via Contact us via our website. We have experienced Player Specialists who listen, solve, tally, describe, and share your thoughts with the right people on our team. They are the first to alert the rest of the team to major problems and Trina, the leader of that team, also shares motivating, poignant, or key messages to the whole studio. Also you can tweet story related questions to @PlayChoices. Jessica will often check with individual writing teams to see if it’s something they can answer.

To all of our fandom everywhere, thank you for your love. We understood that love isn’t just fun and compliments, but it also comes with teasing and obstacles. And the best love comes with hard talks, accountability, and growth. When we stumble, we promise to honor our side of the relationship by continuing to learn and grow. And we hope that you will continue to rant, tease, and grow with us.

On behalf of our whole team,

Oliver

  • <p> <b><p></b> <b></b> How can everyone call Jin pig but when he call Jimin a pig it's the end of the world. Jin is the most unappreciated member in BTS and the fact that everyone can just ignore someone who is so amazing really annoys me. Sometimes Army really pisses me off. THEY ALL MATTER!!!!!! NO ONE MATTERS MORE THAN THE OTHER!!!!!!!! Everyone makes BTS BTS. Without at least one of them BTS wouldn't be the same.<p/></p><p/></p>

So there's this post going around st*ny circles that basically says as a "burn", oh everyone's comparing Steve Trevor to Steve Rogers but "at least Trevor was a real captain" and lmfao what the fuck, do these morons not realize Cap is an actual fucking captain as well. It's not a fucking ~title~ or stage name, it's his goddamn rank, he's O-3 and he earned it because THAT IS HOW WARTIME PROMOTIONS WENT jfc. Ugh. Sorry for the impromptu rant in your inbox, I'm just fed up with this ignorant shit.

I’d be pissed along with you (normally I am whenever I encounter Steve hate) but I’m too amused at their ignorance. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face! LOL! When you try so hard to be a hater, but end up looking like an idiot because you got your facts so incredibly wrong.

In other words, you are 100% correct, Anon, and the people who made and are reblogging that post are 100% wrong. Steve was a legit Captain.

Rank insignia for army officers, including the rank of Captain…

Steve Rogers in full army dress uniform circa Captain America: First Avenger

It’s called a field promotion or battlefield promotion. And when you skip a rank it’s called a jump-step promotion. Very common during WW1 and WW2, in fact, very common right up to the Vietnam War when such commissions were replaced by a centralized promotion system. 

According to the army website: “Battlefield promotions are predicated on extraordinary performance of duties while serving in combat or under combat conditions.”

Which is how Steve was awarded the promotion.

More on the practice of battlefield commissions: “A battlefield commission is awarded to enlisted soldiers who are promoted to the rank of commissioned officer for outstanding leadership on the field of battle. The granting of a battlefield commission has its historical predecessor in the medieval practice of the knighting or ennoblement of a plebeian combatant on the battleground for demonstration of heroic qualities in an exceptional degree.”

You know what the irony of this situation is? Years ago, circa 2009, a movie came out featuring a young soon-to-be Captain who was promoted in a very similar fashion to the way Steve Rogers was promoted by the end of the movie, i.e. skipping rank to be granted the commission of Captain after leading a courageous mission against a serious threat. That character was James T. Kirk, who, incidentally, was played by Chris Pine. And I once defended Kirk’s promotion in a similar way to the way I’m defending Steve’s rank now, as Kirk, like Rogers, is one of my all-time favorite characters.

I think I must be destined to a life of defending young Captains played by actors named Chris from imbeciles who don’t bother to check their facts before making ridiculous posts. :D

This Isn’t Goodbye - Stiles Stilinski

Author: @mf-despair-queen

Characters: Stiles Stilinski/Me (I legit have no shame for this)

Word Count: 6,893

Warnings: NSFW, 18+, It’s honestly just really sweet sex?, possible tears

Notes: So, talking to @minhosmeanhoe about doing something for the end of Teen Wolf and this is it. It’s hard to really express what this show means to me because it has changed my life. So much. So this is literally my rants, through Scott and myself, expressing what this show means to me, thanking it for everything it has done. The things I say are coming legit from me. This isn’t the end for us though. I will not stop writing for teen Wolf, for Stiles. It means too much to let it go away completely. So, just… enjoy my rant I guess. And me spilling my heart out about the show. And of Stiles. And me wishing Stiles was mine. 

PS This is unedited. And I don’t even care. So ignore all my typos because I know they exist.

Chris/Melissa are making Karamel Funny

(First I’m sorry if this in any way makes anyone upset, I don’t mean to start a thing. It’s just my opinion, please don’t attack me for it. Gosh, just because I have to say this show how Tumblr can be a toxic place.)  

I just watched the newest episode of Supergirl and I find it very funny that Kara says that Mon-El doesn’t look at her with love anymore. I’m just sitting there, being like: each time he looks at her he’s oozing with love. Imra’s gone for two sec and it’s like she’s never been there in the first place. If he keeps looking at her with more love I think there is a real chance that he might create a hole in her head but nooo, there’s no love, nothing, nada, it’s a dead look.

After this ep. there is no way anyone can look at me with a straight face and tell me Karamel won’t happen again. It’s true, they are three good people stuck in a really awkward, messy, uneasy and unfair situation but the outcome is clear as day.

Honestly, I don’t know if the look we’re seeing on screen is Mon-El looking at Kara or Chris looking at Mellisa but I couldn’t sit there hearing this sentence with a straight face. I just find it very funny. But hey, by all means, let’s not look at the obvious and keep guessing: Oh no! Are they gonna get back together?!

Naruto x alcohol headcanons
  • also known as "get none_kitten's headcanons away from me asap"
  • Naruto: yells a lot, hugs everyone and gives smoochy cheek kisses. even to Kakashi. never let him drink again. probably would light a trashcan on fire. is oblivious to anyone flirting with him, to a point where it's painful to watch.
  • Sakura: Tsunade 2.0, now with upgraded damage.
  • Sai: blushes a lot, suddenly he doesn't fuck up human conversation, but also has a horrible headache and pukes halfway.
  • Sasuke: snark level 527383106
  • Shikamaru: suddenly blurts out ALL the random facts. hey did you know the Eiffel tower was shorter in winter?
  • Ino: flirts with and teases every-fucking-one around the table (or town), but doesn't really follow through.
  • Chouji: cheap-ass drunk food, probably pizza from the shadiest street food place? gimmmeeeee
  • Hinata: wow she speaks a lot. probably about serious literature and poetry. also is really pretty with the blush and shiny eyes she's got going on.
  • Shino: deems the entire thing illogical but gets ass-drunk anyways, starts up conversation with the local flora and fauna (and by this i mean that at one point he was probably hugging a decorative ficus) then leaves without a word to go sleep.
  • Kiba: challenges Naruto in yelling matches, pisses off the balcony, ends up snuggling with Akamaru, hanging half off the beer-stained couch.
  • Neji: super cute, probably would look amazing in a flower crown, is a huge flirt but never notices he's doing it, all the while he keeps swaying from one foot to the other. string of broken hearts left behind? check. does he remember it in the morning? nah, son
  • Tenten: takes interest in the butcher knives in the kitchen, and gives murderous glances to anyone who tries to chat her up. takes care of Neji though, when he can't walk anymore, and pretends not to know Lee.
  • Lee: accidentally drop-kicks someone off the balcony, because THE POWER OF YOUTH CAN'T BE CONTAINED!!!!
  • Gai: rants about the Springtime of Youth for about two and a half beers, then falls asleep on the table because he's getting to old for this, dammit
  • Kakashi: plays bored for half the evening, flirts with everyone the other half (and by flirting i mean he's the sassiest bitch in town and takes home whomever lasts the longest). has a pretty pink blush on the visible half of his face. probably made Sharingan jokes along the evening.
  • Asuma: out smoking the whole time, rolling his eyes as people keep asking him for "just one cigarette, mate". when he - occasionally - shows face inside, he keeps eyeing Kurenai in a definite leer.
  • Kurenai: tries way too hard to ignore Asuma's stares. ends up getting a ride home in Asuma's car. probably tries to convince Kiba at least twice to go home already and sleep it off.
  • Anko: starts telling more and more disturbing jokes and cackles madly.
  • Ibiki: facepalms endlessly because Anko also has a vine-like grip on his arm and clings on. painfully.
  • Yamato: drunken rants. so many of them. 90% of it is probably vegan activism.
  • Kotetsu and Izumo: making out in a corner. from all that's showing, they could pass a) as teenagers in love b) as they're currently having hot hot steamy sex c) they morphed into one being with too many limbs and hair d) all of the above
  • Iruka: blushes. blushes a lovely shade of deep red only lobsters have.
  • Jiraiya: there's a line forming to slam-dunk his face into the toilet. a line of very angry women.
  • ps: there's a private Hokage party upstairs where Hashirama is acting like a child, Tobirama is more done than Ibiki and Kakashi combined, Hiruzen chuckles good-naturedly over a cup of fine sake, and Minato has a drunken flush on his face as he stares starry-eyed into nowhere.
Some things I want to say

I feel like making another post about this even though I’ve done it like a million times.

Its ok to be a Anti-shipper.
Dude, I’m not mad at you for not shipping this thing that I ship.
That’s cool and totally fine and valid opinion to have.

I’m mad because so many you Anti’s of so many ships in so many fandoms go around attacking people for these things.
Its fucking stupid and wrong.

Look, I’m going to give a example of a Fiction vs Reality thing.

I love Rick Sanchez.
I think he’s a interesting and amazing character. He’s intelligent and witty and self aware and such a well done character to look at.
Now, if I was forced to be around a real life alcoholic, narcissistic, megalomaniac then I’d either kill myself or run so goddamn far away.
I still love Rick as a character. But just that, A CHARACTER. Rick would be a awful person and NOT someone I would ever ever be around in the real world.

By the logic of Tumblr, Rick and Morty should be canceled and completely destroyed because it shows alcoholism, abuse and lots of other “problematic” things.
We should get rid of it forever!! What if someone watches it and thinks its ok to snort alien crystals and murder their multi-timeline selfs!!!!!!

But of course, that’s fucking stupid.


Rick and Morty is a beautiful and amazing show that makes me genuinely happy to know it got to exist. Some of the characters suck but that’s because their characters and that’s it.
Same applys to ships.
I ship RickMorty, I find their relationship interesting and complex and its something I like to read/write about.

Does this mean that I suddenly want to go shove my non existent dick down some children’s throats?

F u c k n o

We should not and will not censor art because some people don’t like it.

Anti’s say that it makes children more likely to be targeted if they see something like Maxvid because they’ll think its “normal”.
Ok no. First of all, you have to be 13 to use Tumblr and if a fucking 13+ year old sees some Maxvid or RickMorty fanart and thinks “oh yea that’s completely normal, good and healthy!”
Then just,
What the fuck?
How stupid are you that you see something on the internet and go “yea that’s exactly how real life works because fiction isn’t real and no one lies on the internet”

b O I.

And a lot of you guys seem to genuinely think that pedophilia literally only happened because a few people drew some pictures.

Yeah, no.

That’s a serious mental problem that doesn’t just happen because someone drew a picture of a kid and a triangle.

Again, I’m not mad if you don’t ship what I ship.
I mad because people go around calling me and a lot of other people these fucked up words, sending death threats and other not ok things.

You can rant and scream that we’re being problematic and horrible people but at the end of the day all we did was write a dumb story and draw something while you told someone they were a rapist pedophile

If you see something that upsets or triggers you or just something you don’t like then block the person, block the tag or just ignore it

Ship what you ship.
Don’t ship whatever you want.
Just don’t actually attack or hurt anyone, ok?

IM GOING TO TAG SOME OF THE SHIPS I HAVE THAT ARE CONSIDERED “PROBLEMATIC”
IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THESE SHIPS OR THE THINGS I’VE SAID IN THIS POST THEN PLEASE BLOCK OR UNFOLLOW ME.

Kara and Mon-El fight in pretty much every episode. She creates a list of reasons why they’re not good for each other, and it’s growing. She tells Mon-El to keep what happened between them private because of how new it is, which is completely reasonable, and then ignores her wishes ten seconds later and tells everyone. He did that more than once throughout this episode.

Kara gets angry at im in every episode, and those reasons are pretty legit, only for those reasons to be completely resolved at the end of the episode. I’m having so much difficulty understanding how the writers are doing this so WRONG. They insist he’s a good guy while making him do really shitty things in every single episode, only for him to get away with doing those things every time.

And Kara and Mon-El slept together in the episode immediately after getting together, but somehow couldn’t manage more than two kisses for Kara and James in an entire season. Kara and Mon-El were far more physical with each other in this one episode than Alex and Maggie has been since they got together. I’m pretty sure Winn’s girlfriend had more lines than Maggie. I was actually really surprised she was there at the end of the episode.

He was injected into almost every scene, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he pulled in more screen time than Alex in an episode about the Danvers family reuniting. They were so desperate to make Mon-El the hero in this.

And where the hell is James? Yeah, blah blah blah, I know some people are happy about his disappearance. I don’t care. It makes zero sense that he has been gone for two episodes with absolutely no explanation.

I know I’m ranting here, but this makes no sense. It’s like the show completely changed it’s course after the first season. It’s like all of the stuff they were against doing in the first then became fair game in the second.

I know that the Karamel fandom is really small, but I just don’t understand how anyone ships them. Kara finds a problem with him in every single episode, points it out, and then gets over it at the end. Mon-El almost blatantly ignores her wishes at every turn but as long as he apologizes, or even merely acknowledges it at the end, it’s all good.

How is this cute? How is this attractive? How is this at all empowering to a female audience? How is revolving Kara’s entire season 2 story line around her love interest positive character development? What in the hell happened to this show’s writers?

Because I mistakenly thought that a female lead superhero show wouldn’t work almost exactly like a male lead one. That this one would put out a positive message to women. So far, all it’s shown anyone is that no matter how many doubts you have about someone, as long as they look REALLY sincere in their apology, then just let it go. Kara calls him out on so much of his shit, but it never means anything because she forgets about it later.

I just…I’m so stunned by the depth that the writers have fallen this season. It’s like I’m watching two different shows, and the second show is continously slapping the first one in the face.

And worst of all, that last scene really should have been Kara and Alex. That’s the relationship that has been hit the hardest by this Karamal nonsense. Every single week a new episode airs, and I look forward to the the next one even less…

anonymous asked:

Is Reiji x Yui your otp? I just saw your post tags... I don't see that pairing as popular so I was wondering why you ship them??

Of course I ship them! I kind of ship Yui with all the boys in a way, but ReiYui is one of my fav ships to be honest.

And I adore the ship because Reiji, out of all the boys, does the least to change the fundamentals of Yui. He doesn’t really want her to give up on her faith and he doesn’t insult her positivity and optimism like the others (although he does comment on it). He doesn’t work to change how she feels or sees the world, and even gets slightly offended when Cordelia tries to make a mockery of Yui’s practices, despite the fact that Reiji is discomfited being in the church in the first place. And, well, that’s something the other boys never really gave her. All of them tried to change Yui in some way…Shu kept telling her to throw away her religion because he thought it was worthless, Laito did the same and tried to break her of her faith, Ayato wanted to be her faith, etc. 

And another thing I really liked is how Reiji encourages the anatomy of the Heroine…Yes, he wanted her to be a decent and proper lady but he doesn’t want a mindless girl who would just obey his every order. And…that’s exactly what Beatrix was…She may have been a proper lady, but everything she did was either for Karlheinz or just to beat Cordelia…He’s actually one of the few boys that wants a strong and independent woman that lives for herself. Not for any man, not for any other being, but for herself

Notice how Beatrix is breaking due to her conflict with Cordelia? It’s clearly shown how she’s slowly losing her calm and ladylike demeanor because of her…Reiji even admits that he feels ashamed to have admired a woman who was broken so easily by someone like Cordelia. 

He also encourages Yui to make her own choices, and not because Beatrix was broken, but because it will reinforce the message he so desperately needs….That Yui wants to be there. That she chose him over everyone else. And that he’s worth noticing. Reiji knows about love and how it works, it’s just that he’s given up on the idea that anyone will ever love him…I mean, think about it, he was neglected by his mother his entire life, no one’s truly shown him love and care…until Yui appeared in his life. She doesn’t love him because of his status, she doesn’t love him because he’s the second son, she doesn’t love him because he’s a vampire, she loves him because, well, he’s him

I also like the fact that Reiji does, in fact, apologize to Yui (albeit, in a Reiji fashion that didn’t include an actual apology) when he stepped out of line and attacked her. I just think that that’s very mature of him in a way. And let’s not forget the fact that he’s canonly the most “dere” (loving/romantic) out of his brothers.

And lastly, I just like the fact that Reiji never truly makes fun of Yui’s appearance. Ayato insults her chest all the time, Subaru also mentioned that she has no breasts in HDB, Shu said that he finds her body unattractive in general, Laito literally roasts her in his entire HDB CD that you can read here, etc. 

So, yeah…that’s why I ship these two. I’m sorry that this kind of ended up being long but when you ask me a question like this, I will literally list all my reasons for it. I know how some people blindly portray Reiji as the bad guy in the story just because he did that to Yuma’s village in the past and literally make Shu a depressed angel that needs saving and, well, that’s just being plain ignorant to be honest. They’re both assholes. There are no good guys or bad guys in Diabolik Lovers. They’re all pretty bad in their own way. End rant. 

I do not own any of the manga scans.

that banned books post frustrates me for multiple reasons

1. That’s not the 2017 banned books list. The real list is on the ALA website. Those are books that have gotten the most challenges over the years and not even just in the USA

2. The banned books list is not a list of books that were actually BANNED. They are the books that received the most challenges that year. Something like 90% of the time, books that are challenged are not REMOVED from a collection. Reading lists and schools are different, but you’re not talking about how the list actually works.

3. More often than not, things that are challenged and removed are put back on lists or sought out by people to read anyway. Administrations change, people are curious, and your public library more than likely has everything the school chooses to avoid the parent whine trap by pulling

MM makes sure to explain at the end of it that Levana’s shitty life doesn’t justify her awful actions and a lot of people use backstories to defend people’s present behavior and I just love that MM illustrates this terrible, pitiful story, but doesn’t act like that makes Levana solely a victim in life. The power shifted, she abused it, and it can’t be ignored.

Listen. I would love nothing more than for The X-Files to end with Season 11. As a long-time fan, I’m ready to let go of this thing that has taken so much space in my brain. 

But if The X-Files is going to end… I want it to end with integrity. And I feel less and less with each passing day and each new bit of intel that this is going to happen in 2018.

I understand show business. You’re not going to please everyone. Personally, I don’t want Scully to die. I care about Mulder too much (and okay, my shipper bias is showing) to want him to exist in a world where Scully is gone in her 50s. What I want is the ending where Mulder and Scully walk off into the metaphorical sunset together (a style of ending which has been pulled of with success in the past in IWTB or The Truth). And if Chris Carter and FOX need to leave things open, then by God, give us the Stranger Things ending – give us a positive resolution for the characters, while also hinting that there are still malevolent forces at work (that the protagonists are woefully, thankfully, oblivious to in their ending moment) which could thrust our heroes back into action.

I’m fine with this being Gillian Anderson’s last season. Good god, she owes us nothing.

My qualms lie with the very real threat that Fox and Carter will try to continue the franchise without Scully. That’s not a canon I want to live in. It denies that Mulder & Scully are the heart and soul of the show, and it is ignorant to the fact that when the series attempted to go without one of their leads in the past, it failed.

If 2018 is the end of Scully, let it be the end for everyone.

Got7 Reaction #21 - Their best friend (and crush) stops talking to them because they’re afraid it will hurt the members career if they started dating

requested by a lovely anon~


Mark: Our usually quite baby will chose this time to completely open up about his feelings to you. He would talk to you about this for hours to make sure you understand.

“Look Y/n, the point of this is that I can’t live without you in my life. This past week I was a wreck without you to talk to. If in the end you don’t want to date me then fine. Just please talk to me again.”

Jaebum: He would be pissed. Really pissed.

“That is why you’ve been avoiding me? Are you serious? My career won’t be hurt just because of my personal life. Especially since we won’t tell anyone right away. If you don’t want to talk to me then fine, but it would be a waste since we both really like each other.”

Jackson: When Jackson learned that this was the reason why you were avoiding him he’d be devastated. He had given you space when you stopped talking to him because he thought you needed to sort out your feelings before coming back to him. He was convinced that you’d come back and tell him your feelings but you hadn’t.

He’d end up going to you after finding out you didn’t want to hurt his career and he’d give you a heartfelt speech about how your feelings for each other wouldn’t ever be a bad thing. he would probably tear up when talking to you too.

Y'all be like ‘Percy’s going to be a great big brother!’ Meanwhile I’m over here like,, how?? Where’s the evidence ?? He was legit shit to nico, a 10 year old boy ,, um am I the only one who read the books?? Like he berated nico in his head for looking ridiculous in armor, couldn’t stand or have patience for questions from him, and hesitated to talk to him in fear he’d have to listen to mythomagic again, (when he only knew him for 2/3 days?? Like?? How much time do you think this boy has for you Percy geez??)

I mean he ridiculed an excited ten year old boy, knowing full on half-bloods already have it bad. (see: HIMSELF) like who does 13 year old Percy think he is ??

So how do you think he’s going to act when he has his baby sister? I mean yeah people change, (but this is also the boy who’s so ignorant he thinks nico had a crush on his gf) but how much can he?? Like- Percy will 10/10 be annoyed hearing this little baby scream for hours on end because her mom isnt home, and he has to babysit her. Just where are you getting this great info that Percy changes right away? And that he won’t leave first chance he gets to go to new Rome with annabeth (see: LEGIT WHOLE SERIES) but then again who wouldn’t drop everything for annabeth like

Like ppl do realize that the misogynistic thing abt the trope of women always ending up w a man even when they express that they’re not interested in them? Is literally the idea that women are dependent on men and need men in their lives. Like if a girl is a loner and then ends up w a woman it’s not the same as her ending up w a man? It’s not more progressive for a woman to stay alone than it is for her to end up w another woman bc either way a man is not involved which like is the whole fucking point lol it’s entirely useless and just a poor disguise for ur lesbophobia to say that women should stay single for ‘empowerment’ or whatever instead of be w another woman

Just Like You

{Want An Imagine? Requests Are Open! Send It To My Inbox Or Message Me!}

Imagine…

“No, no, no.” The blonde in front of you shook her head. “Dean doesn’t do laundry. He makes Sam do it!” She stated with a smug grin. You let out a small huff feeling a small anger bubbling in you.

“I’m telling you. Dean’s soft on the inside! Just look at how he was with Lisa!” You said it fairly loud. The men in the booth in front of you heard. They froze in their seats. The taller one gave the shorter a sympathetic look.

“Okay- okay…I get that but Lisa was probably just a one time thing,” The blonde shrugged opening up a straw and stabbing it into her glass of water. “I get that he did stay with them but if he knew Sam was alive then he would’ve went with him. Plus Dean was just using her for s-” A loud bang caused both girls to jump in the booth. The entire diner went silent.

“Sorry.” A male voice came through. It was coated with anger and he no doubt talked through his teeth. The diner went back to it’s busy state and your friend went back to talking.

“Anyways enough about these stupid books. So my boyfrie-” She continued to speak but at that point you stopped listening. Of course you did listen to her sometimes but most of the time you spaced off ignoring her speech. Your favorite book series ended abruptly without an explanation. Some said that the author died, some say he didn’t want to write anymore, some say he demanded more money. None sounded like him. “-and he has the audacity to tell me that I’m the one with the attitude! You think I’m right, right?”

You look over at her with a bored expression. Instead of answering with words you just nodded. She opened her mouth to rant once again but her phone started to buzz on the table. Her eyes immediately landed on it. A smile forming on her lips.

“Sorry, Y/n we can catch up later.” Your friend stands, bag already on her shoulder. She swipes her phone from the table and walks off without another word. This tended to happen often though you thought it was normal.

“Alone again…” You mutter leaning back in the worn out seat. Neither of you ordered anything except water considering you two were going to catch up. Your water sat on the table still full. Maybe if you waited long enough the ice would melt and let the water overflow.

“Hey, couldn’t help but overhear your conversation.” The man that the voice belongs to slides in the seat where your friend once sat. A taller man slips in next to him. They wear flannel…many…many layers of flannel and jackets. You look at them both prepared to get out of the booth and run. “We’re fans of the book.” He adds seeing your uneasiness.

“Yeah. I like Sam more. Dean’s an idiot.” The taller man speaks earning a hit under the table from the other. You raise a brow leaning forward to rest your elbows on the table.

“Dean is not an idiot.” You defend. Even if you didn’t know them personally it felt like you did. The books related to you in more ways than one. Not that you actually killed monsters but their other struggles.

“What makes you say that? I mean the things he’s done-” You cut off the taller man by putting up a hand.

“The things he did were for good. If he didn’t do them then who knows what would happen. I want to be just like Dean. Even if his brother does get mad at him, Sam knows what Dean does is for the greater good.” You explain feeling the green eyed man staring at you.

“Yeah. No. You don’t want to be like Dean.” The shorter man scoffs shaking his head.

“Yeah I do. Flaws and all. He’s not supposed to be perfect, if he was I probably wouldn’t want to be like him.” You lean back once again. Your eyes flick between the two men. They did seem like they dressed like Sam and Dean. They were fans so why not. “He’s perfect in my mind. Even if he did make mistakes, I want to be just like him.” The two men look at each other. One wearing a shocked expression while the other gives a sympathetic one. You decided to continue your rant. “He’s my hero you could say.”

“I’m no- Dean…is no one’s hero.” The green eyed man shakes his head. You look over at him locking eyes with him.

“I relate to him. I know it wasn’t said in the books but I’m almost positive John hurt Dean. My mom- she…well anyways.” You quickly change the subject remembering these are strangers. “He helped me through tough times. That’s why he’s my hero.” You break eye contact with the man. They stay silent for what seems like hours. One clears his throats but you stare at the table.

“Well…we should go.” You can hear them slide out of the seat. It was maybe two minutes before you felt a hand on your shoulder. You jumped looking up meeting those green eyes.

“By the way. I do the laundry most of the time.” He gives you a wink before walking off. You sit there frozen. They aren’t real- are they?
