keeping the world out

[OCs] Diego was the taller one when they were lil'uns, but fast forward 14 years and the tables turned (Allen’s only partly supernatural, Diego’s a jaguar shifter :3c) 

I’m finally getting things underway with this story!! there’s plenty more characters to come, just whittling away bit by bit o/

HONESTLY BLESS SUBARU FOR REALISING THIS IS NOT EXACTLY SOMETHING FAI WOULD WANT OTHER PEOPLE TO SEE

AND BLESS KUROGANE FOR TRYING TO HELP HIM THROUGH IT BY PHYSICALLY KEEPING HIM UP

Because I know this was partially what Kamui told him to do, but it’s also the opposite of what Kamui said. He wanted Fai “held down”, but Kurogane is keeping him up. Kurogane isn’t restraining Fai, he’s supporting him, and the difference between the two is 100% goodness. 

Also, let’s recap:

Helpful people: Kurogane, Subaru

Unhelpful people: the room full of people who just casually watched this whole thing happen

Even less helpful people: Kamui, describing the process for everyone watching

I suppose if you wanted to be kinder to Kamui you could say that he’s saying this to Kurogane, as a way of reassuring him, but I am very much less inclined to assume the nice option where Kamui is concerned.

It is hard to know, what is true or what is false.
We all believe what we see with our eyes.
So people do not believe each other, fight each other, and hurt others.
But this is why we are so special.
However, we people, are sometimes very dangerous.
We care about each other, but we also hate one another.
When one’s truth collides with other’s truth, so many things gets destroyed.
Is that why?
This is the reason, why we have them.
From now on, I will tell you from when they existed, and where they are.
And the truth lies all around us.
The nine stories that I will tell you from now on, is the truth that people did not know.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past few months it’s that no one and I mean no one in the world is going to keep dragging you out of bed on your bad days and no one is going to be patient enough to wait for your anxiety attack to be over so you can say what’s on your mind. You, you have to love yourself enough to do these things. Life, you have to want it so bad. Only you can stop wasting your own time. 
My doctor said don’t waste your youth and my teacher told me to stop staring walls and just do something and my best friend, she said staying in bed is easier yes , but what’s the point? You can’t let your feelings swallow you. 
And you see, you can repeat those words in your head over and over but what’s the point if you stay still at the same exact point where your feet tripped ? 
Take one little step. For you, for me just do something

Things I can’t deal with: “aces aren’t oppressed because not being sexual is considered pure and good”

Yeah, if you’re a white woman. I am sick and tired of people dismissing the complicated relationships POC have to sexuality (in the “being sexual” sense, not the orientation sense, though that’s it’s own maze of complexity). And when we do talk about, it’s solely about hypersexualization, which is only half of the puzzle.

Brown and black people of all genders are also desexualized. That’s true overall, but I can only speak in detail about the experience of being a south asian brown woman. Me being non-sexual is NOT seen as pure and good. It’s seen as my default state. Even more so because I am not thin by any definition (fat people, and fat POC in particular, have that extra layer of desexualization to deal with). I am not “pure” when I don’t have sex and “dirty” when I do. Non-sexual is seen as my “natural” state of being. Having sexual desire/being sexual, for a brown fat girl, speeds right on past “dirty” and into “repulsive”. It’s not naughty or scandalous, it’s unnatural, gross, the abject.

Asexuality as an identity is already so much to try to grapple with when you have this history of colonialism and white supremacy defining what it means to be sexual. I don’t fucking need white lgbt people preaching to me about how society ~values~ lack of sexuality/sexual desire, when imposing that lack upon us has been one of the historical tools of white supremacy.

On a separate but related note - it also smacks very much to me of the whole “society’s ideal woman is bisexual”! Which again a) completely misunderstands the definition of the identity and b) imposes a ridiculously narrow white-centric understanding of sexuality onto the whole goddamn world.

if youre gonna call someone a terf you should know damn well what it means.

a terf is a trans exclusionary radical feminist. and if you still dont get the severity thats because you arent looking at the endgame. “what do terfs want to accomplish”

terfs want to get rid of trans women. its that simple. and they do it by directly affecting their livelihood.

terfs dont see trans women as women. they will misgender trans women. they will deny trans women from live saving treatments and resources. they will, and have done many times in the past, call trans women rapists, predators, and any other lie to keep them from freely existing. they will do whatever it takes to invalidate their existance. this endgoal is to make sure trans women dont come out. to keep them and the world from acknowledging they are women

the other way terfs directly impact trans womens lives and safety is by outing them, harassing them, getting them fired, getting them kicked out or denied housing. they directly affect trans womens freedom to exist

and if you want to compare terfs to anything that arent terfs. dont. if you call something “terf rhetoric” and its not about eliminating trans women. stop

we (those not affected by transmisogyny) need to do better. dont diminish what terfs actually are. dont diminish what they actually mean.

The hardest thing I have to deal with on a daily fucking basis is the double standard in this fandom. Let’s just imagine:

  • if it had been Tony Stark who said Fuck You the entire UN governing system?
  • If it had been Tony Stark who’d kept, say, the information about Bucky becoming the winter soldier from steve?
  • If steve had done everything, got into multiple fights and battles with the UN and flown across the whole world, just to keep Tony out of jail, and then have him run off anyway and make everything 10× worse for him?
  • If Steve had been the one manipulated by Wanda?
  • If Steve had been the one to bring Peter into the fight, under the assumption there would be no actual conflict and just wanted more manpower, and then Tony had been the one to drop an aircraft on him?

Tl;dr- Even if you completely reversed their actions, somehow, magically, Steve Rogers would still be the hero, And tony stark would still be villainized.

Honestly, if I were in Alice’s shoes, I would stay around with the Caterpillar.
