just part of my rant

I get really upset every time I see someone say that Derek and Stiles hated each other, and people say it all the time, and it’s really getting to me at this point because I do not believe that they ever really had reason to hate, as in not being able to stand each other, detesting/loathing each other. And what I hate even is more is saying that SCOTT BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER BECAUSE NO.

Stiles was the first one to trust Derek. He didn’t think Derek had ill intentions. When he saw Derek drive Allison home from the party , Stiles saw it as a nice and kind act and he didn’t think there was anything to be wary of - until Scott started claiming Derek was the killer and Stiles of course trusted Scott more than someone he (as far as we know) only heard about, someone who lost almost his entire family in a suspicious fire and who then disappeared. Stiles probably recalled all the villain stories he’d heard/seen/read and concluded, hey, Derek had all potential to be that villain. Except that Allison was safe at home like he had expected in the end. Nonetheless SCOTT GOT BETWEEN DEREK AND STILES FIRST and was the reason that Stiles suddenly had no idea what to do with Derek because he was unsure what was going on. And Scott stayed wary and uneasy around Derek long after Stiles fully trusted him.

Stiles’ first instinct was to trust Derek.
Then Scott ruined that and kept ruining it, even when Derek proved otherwise.
Then suddenly Scott went to Derek for help with his shift, whereas he totally disregarded Stiles’ attempts to help. Scott was becoming a part of something that Stiles couldn’t be part of and so it probably felt like Derek was taking away the only friend Stiles had. Derek, who Scott claimed was dangerous. He knows Derek’s a werewolf, which could very well justify him being dangerous.
Then they find half of Laura in Derek’s yard, and yeah, Stiles is scared. He has all right to be. (Fear doesn’t equal hate though)
This new werewolf thing is way over his head, and it’s distancing Scott from him and people are dying and they don’t know what’s going on, and Derek is suspicious.

I don’t see any hate in that.

Stiles might say he wants Derek dead but we see in later seasons that that’s just one of the things he says. I mean, he looks terrified of Derek dying from the wolfsbane bullet in Episode 4. He doesn’t actually want to experience Derek dying. As early as in Episode 4. And I can’t remember when I last watched the show and which episodes I watched but as far as I can remember their relationship only builds and gets better after that.

None of the behaviors showcase any hate to me. They’re in life threatening situations, they don’t trust, they CAN’T trust, and they threaten each other because of that, they are rough toward each other because many lives are in danger and because they are in over their heads, not because they personally have something against each other

TwO MoRe DAYS!!!!!!!! And it’s starting to really hit me that this show is going to be over. *cries in the corner*

Dipper and Ford’s relationship has got to be one of my favorites in the show. Dipper looks up to Ford so much and Ford genuinely cares about Dipper and its so cute and adorable and fluffy and Im sORRY I JUST LOVE THEM SO MUCH OH MAN

Off the top of my head, this is what 2017 has brought us so far:
  • Gay
  • Weekly date nights
  • Spoiling each other with expensive gifts, them rich hoes
  • Dogbaiting galore
  • Housebaiting galore
  • Oh and kidbaiting galore
  • Gay
  • Near-death experiences that are basically their apartment trying to kick them out i.e. housebaiting from non-sentient beings galore
  • Two AP and two DINOF videos
  • Six DAPG videos (wtf????? who are these people???)
  • Dan’s disgustingly fond birthday tweet to Phil
  • Japhanbaiting
  • le Hobbit Hair
  • A lot of gay
  • Hibernation where they cuddled up and watched Planet Earth 2 in Phil’s bed together #goals
  • PHIL’S THIRTIETH BIRTHDAY
  • Dan going with Phil to see his family at the Isle of Man for his birthday even though it was specifically a family birthday #goals
  • Basically multiple confirmations that DnP are family
  • All their domestic moments that they obnoxiously tweet about all the time (we get it, okay? You two are in love, now stop making us third-wheel)
  • Weekly liveshows
  • Fond mentions of each other in said live-shows
  • “Gaykery” + the basic confirmation that they don’t go anywhere separately
  • Tweets and photos from Phil’s birthday week (their seaside walks were romantic af, fight me)
  • Did I mention gay?
  • More <3 eyes, touching and flirting
  • “Life things” and the general promise of a more chilled year i.e. focusing on their lives and YT more
  • Phangate theories being dragged by DnP themselves, who apparently find Phanti funnier than Phan (suspicious much?)
  • Dan playing piano in a liveshow and making a piano video
  • Dan basically getting Phil, among many things, a signed picture of a naked dude in a bathtub for his birthday… Hetero who?
  • Dan said he might wear a single earring??? PLEASE SENPAI
  • Photos where they either look soft/squishy af (i.e. Dan) or daddy/sexy af (i.e. Phil)
  • Lots of talk about penises and parenting
  • Phil predicted a year of “domestic happiness”, “fertility” and other things i.e. let’s just assume that not one single non-sentient being is Phanti
  • Our beautiful babies being happy and smiley and in love
  • Oh and gay

…this was just off the top of my head…

…and it’s only the 12th of February…

…there have been more cute moments in a month and a half than the whole of 2012, ‘13, and ‘14 combined…

…2017 truly is the year, guys.

im no dear evan hansen expert but even i can point out that telling a girl all the things you love about her (in a blatant romantic connotation unbeknownst to her) while lying under the guise of her dead abusive brother is pretty damn disgusting

Aphobes, beating LGBT aces/non ace inclusionists with a stick: WE’RE PROTECTING YOU, WE’RE HELPING YOU, THIS DISCOURSE ISN’T ABOUT YOU!! IT’S ABOUT HET ACES!! WHY ARE YOU RESISTING? YOU DON’T NEED TO GET INVOLVED, WHY CAN’T YOU LOVE YOURSELF?? 

I’m not one to do these long, rambled things, usually, as I like to lay low and just do my own things without drawing much attention to myself or what have you…
But I’ve had quite a few moments over the past couple of days where I’ve just been sitting in silence and thinking. I’m just so amazed at how quickly I went from a “lonely nobody” with very few friends (whom I cherish with my entire life still, if any see this just know I love you so much!) to gaining a handful of great, new friends in a span of 2-3 months. Some artists, some not; but they’re all so great and so valid, and I care about them so much already. 
This all just absolutely blows me away… because I know that I’m new to this whole artist/art scene and community. Not necessarily My Little Pony, or anything, but rather Tumblr and the Tumblr circle of likened artists (Adge, Apri, Pasu, etc). And I know I’m new to a lot of the things they’re affiliated with in terms of headcanons, AUs, Next Gens, stories, etc; and each other. Although I’d LOVE to catch up and feel a part of everything with that, be included and help with some things, as well as contribute with my own things, and I’m certain I can at some point; I always feel like I’m just being a nuisance and trying way too hard to fit in to be included. That’s just my anxiety and everything though (hopefully). Everyone is so nice to me, and I question how I came to be so deserving but I’d never take it for granted. In fact, I absolutely appreciate it with my entirety. So thank you all for your patience for putting up with me and my awkwardness. Try as I might, I know I’m not up to speed or as close as you all are to each other. Maybe one day! I can only keep trying. But seriously thank you for allow me the opportunity to call you my friends, and to be where I am right now. it’s absolutely incredible to think this is all happening. <3
As for my art, and lack of confidence; I really know I’m not a great artist, not even a good one. Not yet. I want to be, and maybe one day I can be! I’m still trying and doing my best regardless. I also know I have a lot to learn in art obviously. I’m fully aware that I need a lot of improvement. And I am trying! I’m just a little smol who’s still learning and practicing art, slowly. I should try harder but I often feel immensely discouraged about my current skill level and style (since I do not have a natural knack for drawing among other things)…which sadly leads to unnecessarily long bouts of procrastination and periods of not drawing anything. I want to get better at that, because it only makes myself feel worse that I haven’t drawn anything or that I’m not taking the steps I need to improve. I have a horrible habit of comparing myself to others, too. Hopefully that’ll change. Though… huge shout-out to everyone who encourages me to continue, and tells me that I’m getting better despite it all. Gretchen, Adge, Rob, Kathleen, Sal, and any I’m missing. You know who you are. Thank you. You’re all amazing.

This has turned into a huge, random rant of unnecessary rambling that’s all over the place and inconsistent. I am so, so, so sorry! Please ignore this! Just had a lot on the mind and felt like getting it out there for my own sake and sanity.
I really hope everyone has an amazing morning/day/evening/night. I love you all very much, and you deserve nothing but the best. Smile!

Okay, I’m gonna say it: I’m not happy at all with the fact that the malec kiss in that teaser looks just like the others we got in 2a.

It’s like a continuation of the almost kiss in 2x07, with a sprinkle of the one from 2x06 on top.

These directors fucking suck when it comes to malec intimacy and it’s getting on my nerves. How freaking hard must it be to insert some freaking variety? Another angle? More passion? A wider shot? Them hugging while doing it? Anything?

There was more variety, emotion and detail in their first kiss in 1x12, than in all of those from s2 put together, and seeing as the actors are the same, the blame is not on them, but on those who direct and shoot those scenes. S1 had its flaws, but how malec was handled was not one of them, which is why it got a freaking award for it.

im sorry i haven’t been writing or updating my stories, guys 😟

Musing about being a POC and queer individual in the TMNT fandom:

I think the hardest part of being in the TMNT fandom for me is the fact that I am not white, am not straight, am not cis, or even neurotypical, and… I identify fairly hard with the turtles because of those things. 

But then… they’re drawn or written as all of those things probably 90% of the time when people are humanizing them, and its just. so hard. to let that go, even though those people have no idea they’re affecting some random person across the internet. Compared to the hundreds of others who don’t feel this way, my personal opinion doesn’t really matter.

I don’t hold it against anyone for their headcanons, and I have never a day in my life sent hate to a person for having those headcanons, since I know those depend almost entirely on the personal life and experiences of those individuals.

They still bother me though, since I feel like it erases a large part of what the turtles’ identities are, which is being a minority among minorities.

They’re the only four of their kind, and pretty much utterly isolated from the rest of the world. They’ve never fit in, and never will, because they are inherently different from the rest of society. They are, in a phrase, freaks of nature.

My circumstances aren’t as extreme, not even close, but I know that feeling on a personal level regardless. Having them portrayed as the socially acceptable norm, it erases a large part of what makes them so interesting; which would be their sheer alien-ness from the rest of us. By making them ordinary cis white straight etc etc in humanized headcanons, I feel it takes away from their original characterization as a minority.

And it just really bothers me, as a single individual in the fandom, to have characters I identify with so strongly become pretty much the complete opposite of who and what I am, and thusly become no longer relatable. It’s just a difficult thing to deal with sometimes, especially since I have no power to change it other than ignoring the content I don’t like.

I hope no one takes this as an insult to their personal headcanons about the series; its just the words from someone who’s never fit correctly to any box, and found a strong connection to four characters who I felt were similar to me in that sense.

“You know, you’ve never asked to be in one of my videos.”

You looked up from your phone, raising your eyebrow. “And this is important because?”

Jordan shrugged, sitting down next to you on the couch. “Well, all of my friends have begged to collab with me because apparently it’s good publicity or if we were true friends, we’d be making a video together… but not you. Like, when you’re in my vlogs, my fans get really excited? It’s kinda… weird. They think you’re cute.”

“Everyone thinks I’m cute. But I’m not. I’m really tough. I can beat you in an arm wrestling match,” You stated, smirking and putting your phone down on the coffee table.

“Well honestly, I beg to differ. My fans think you’re the cutest thing. Especially when we take photos with the dog filter on Snapchat. Trust me, they eat it up,” He stated, crossing his arms

You rolled your eyes, picking your phone up again and scrolling through Tumblr. “You’ve got to be kidding me.”

“No, it’s true! Trust me for once please. They have so much love for you, it’s insane!” Jordan exclaimed, poking your cheek and flashing his signature grin.

“You know, you can’t just smile and think the world will fall at your feet. I’ve grown resistant. I have a soul.” You put your phone down once again and turned to face Jordan, who was now trying his best at giving you “puppy dog eyes”.

His bottom lip was poking out and he was whining softly, holding his hands like paws. “Please? I’ll pay you in food?” He suggested. You rolled your eyes, slapping his arm gently.

“Stop that. I’m sure that even if you asked, they wouldn’t want me in a video.”

“So what If I do ask? Would you do it then?”

You paused, biting your lip slightly. “If your fans say yes and you buy me food, there may be a possibility of a video. But it would depend what the video is and what kind of royalties I get.”

“Royalties? Wow. You sunk low there,” Jordan huffed, crossing his arms. “That’s one hard deal.”

“You could’ve gotten a real job and we wouldn’t have this problem.”

He faked shock, letting out a loud gasp. “Oh gosh! My heard has been struck by this vile person who does not know how to feel emotions. Wow, it’s as if my world has ended!” He fell into your lap, looking up at you and smirking.

“You should’ve become an actor. You could’ve lazed around the same amount, but got paid even less. Doesn’t that sound nice?” You said sarcastically, poking his nose.

“Well, I was in a drama class a long time ago. And there was this gi-“

“I’ve heard the story before Jordan. If you tell it one more time, we’re going to have a problem,” You interrupted, putting your hand over his mouth. He licked your hand, causing you to squeal and pull it away. “You disgust me.”

“So do you want to hear my video idea or not?” Jordan asked, sitting up and crossing his legs.

“Sure. Fire away.”

“Well, I’ve been looking at all the trends, both old and new, and I’ve decided that some of them need to be brought back,” Jordan started, fiddling with the sleeves of his jumper absent-mindedly.

“You know bringing back YouTube trends never ends well. It could end your career, or my social life. It’s risky as anything and I think you’re a mad man if you decide to go through with it.”

“Well, I already have decided to go through with it if you join me. But you know what? It’s going to be the most popular video my channel has ever produced, because you’re in it!”

You raised your eyebrow. “You really think I’m going to go through with this, don’t you?”

He shrugged. “Well, as my best friend I was hoping you would. But, getting back on topic. The boyfriend does my makeup challenge was the cutest thing ever. And of course, I wouldn’t want to embarrass you, so you could do my makeup instead which would be fun! Imagine how glam it would be!”

“Woah woah woah! You’re not my boyfriend! Let’s get that straight before we continue,” You said, crossing your arms and glaring.

“Of course I know that! But… we could make it the best friend does my makeup challenge? It’d be the cutest thing to exist! And we could make a vlog where we go shopping together and buy the makeup!” Jordan exclaimed, smiling wide.

You sighed softly, taking a moment to contemplate. You knew Jordan wouldn’t stop bugging you if you were to blow him off, so you took the only answer you could think of that wouldn’t hurt his feelings.

“So when does all of this begin?”

The smile on Jordan’s face grew wider. “Right now!” He exclaimed, jumping up and grabbing his wallet from the kitchen bench. He grabbed your hand, yanking you out of the apartment. Your eyes widened as he dragged you through the streets.

“I didn’t sign up for this!”

“Oh, but you di- damn. I forgot my camera. I’ll be right back.” He dropped your hand, turning around and bolting back down the hall towards his apartment.

You shook your head in disbelief, tapping your fingers against your leg anxiously. All you wanted in life was to make your best friend happy… so saying yes had to be the correct decision, right?

Bonus:

Merry Christmas, @missmarilove​! Have some awkward and cute (and very pink) “morning after” talk. This is your gift for @creekalldayeveryday​’s secret santa, I hope you enjoy it!

I also hope you can read my shitty handwriting, haha…

the last one was drunk courfeyrac, this one is drunk combeferre. is this a pattern?

(ACTUALLY this is a quick illustration I did for @babesatthebarricade’s fic If Truth Be The Food of Love Speak On, which was a fill for my truth serum prompt!)

JUST STOP PLEASE

It’s really unpleasant to see people getting internet bullied, just because they watch the show for one pairing. Please, as if most of you haven’t just watched something for one character or couple before. I DO get that’s annoying when some people keep replying to everything not involving their fave couple or chara with stuff like, “I’m only watching this for those guys, so there people are sooooo boring for me to watch” or “I think this season is worse, cause the focus is on a chara I don’t care about” LIKE OKAY, I get it. That really can be irritating. HOWEVER, do you know what’s also irritating? Tons and tons of posts complaining about that! In fact, I’ve seen more posts complaining about that happening then it ACTUALLY happening! And you know what’s even worse? Some people aren’t even fetishizing any couples or being annoying about their ship, they just make one post about their otp or a cute moment or whatever and INSTANTLY get attacked by hordes of people, like wtf!? Please. Let’s all just stop and be civil.There’s no need to be unpleasant and attack every chance you get. It would be for the best, if you let some things slide, and if you really really want to talk to someone and teach them about fetishizing or whatever, you can just privately talk to them. Okay? Okay.
