re: "Let's wait until she does something actually problematic before attacking." Laci has done problematic things in the past? She's used the t slur and been super islamophobic and fatphobic and racist, like she HAS been problematic. And she refuses to listen to people when they tell her what she's done wrong, so I don't really think we need to wait any longer before calling her out.

I know I’ve DEFINITELY said fucked up shit in the past. But my followers call me on it and I make active attempts to apologize and correct my language/behavior. NO ONE is perfect but that’s how you grow as a person and an advocate. Based on convos with Laci and past evidence, I’m not seeing much of that…

Chris’s mental health is far more important than keeping his fans happy. I’m sure he’s thankful for what we’ve done for him. But honestly your health should come before everything. You guys know Chris cares for you, just look at the con’s he’s been too with TVD and stuff. He’s interacting and talking and joking around with the fans. But with all the hate he’s, as a person and a character, has been getting I don’t blame him for cancelling. You also should have seen this coming. I mean I predicted Mel and Chris to cancel a few weeks ago.

This is for my dear @giraffedragon-universe, who is celebrating graduation and a birthday! Congratulations!!! :-D

He’s been sitting on the front step for over an hour now, and Qui-Gon finds himself not entirely sure why.

Most of what Obi-Wan has done in these last weeks before leaving has made sense, if only to those who know him well. Qui-Gon has poked his head in on the tidying of his room, on the neat stacking and filing and labeling of schoolwork left for some unknown future purpose or nostalgia; he has helped sort through old clothes for donation (or burning, Obi-Wan had occasionally said, with a wry grin which Qui-Gon only sometimes knew the meaning behind, but he tended to suspect it had to do with Anakin); he has offered the use of the luggage he’s kept tucked away in his own closet, battered and covered in stickered memories, and been gently turned down, told that Obi-Wan intended to earn some of his own rather than take someone else’s with him.

There’s an hour, still, before the car is due to pick him up to go to the train, and it’s starting to get hot with late August heat, but Obi-Wan is already outside. Has been, for a while, and Qui-Gon, watching the front walk from the kitchen with his cooling tea in hand, cannot figure it out.

Anakin is hiding somewhere, he knows, both seeking attention with and ashamed of his tears, when he finally steps sideways out of the screen door and settles down beside his older son and his (new, not-yet-battered) suitcase. His extraordinary, accomplished, wise old irritating soul of a son, his mind adds, and not for the first time he needs a moment to beat down the sudden intake of breath that threatens to make his pride spill over into sorrow.

“Comfortable?” he asks, eventually.

“Yes,” Obi-Wan says. He’s staring calmly down towards the road, his hands interlocked around his kneecaps. “You didn’t need to come out here.”

“I wanted to.” A pause. “Would you preferred it if I waited inside?”

“No,” Obi-Wan says, slower, and then, skinny and overstretched and big-toothed, he looks sideways briefly, and grins. “Just - baby steps.”

“What, sitting on the stoop?” Qui-Gon asks, and suddenly it’s almost funny, and he’s thinking of toddling, fumbling feet on his front lawn in the earlier days of summer. “You’ll have no trouble going. You never have.”

“True,” Obi-Wan nodded. “It’s odd that this time feels different. Because it is, isn’t it?”

“Perhaps. But it doesn’t have to be.” He’s thinking, unbidden, of how much it won’t be; of how Obi-Wan has been prepared for this all his life, of his own accord and probably despite Qui-Gon rather than because of him. “You’ll figure it out, youngling.”

“Hm,” Obi-Wan says, and his fingers slip a little, turn a little less white from pressure as he leans slightly sideways, his hair, finally growing out just beyond his ears, catching the sun. “Thanks, dad.”

“You’re very welcome,” Qui-Gon says, and means it. “Have you said goodbye to Anakin?”

“I tried,” Obi-Wan says, on the end of a fond chuckle. “I think we both need our space.”

“Well, I’d better see to him, then,” Qui-Gon sighs, and levers himself up from the brick with only a slight tinge of regret. “You’re alright out here?”

“Yes. Thank you.”

Qui-Gon goes back inside not entirely sure whether he will be going out again when the car full of Fisto and Vos and all of their chaos arrives to take Obi-Wan with them into the unknown. He knows beyond a doubt, however, that he won’t worry.

His son is, after all, in the most capable of hands - his own.

Can you make a cómic about buff mari? Please ;-;

After this, Kim no longer challenges Adrien to competitions. He goes straight for Marinette.

ML Headcanon: Chloe actually doesn’t have good eyesight.

She isn’t a fan of contact lenses and the minute she tried on glasses she absolutely hated the way they looked on her.

So what was the next best option?

That’s why she’s got those sunglasses on her head all the time.

a four part netflix original series based on the lunar chronicles, a bestselling series by marissa meyer, is coming to netflix on june 9. netflix has released the posters in preparation for the electric debut of this thrilling and face-paced series. 

Chris Pratt, attractive rich heterosexual white man, says he doesn't feel represented in Hollywood.

America’s favorite Average White Man has an interview with People magazine ahead of the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy.  

“I don’t see personal stories that necessarily resonate with me, because they’re not my stories,” Pratt, 37, told the magazine. “I think there’s room for me to tell mine, and probably an audience that would be hungry for them. The voice of the average, blue-collar American isn’t necessarily represented in Hollywood.”

I’m actually amused by how earnest he is.  Has he ever even been to the movies?

I’m pretty sure there’s a whole genre of movies based on average, blue-collar American white men literally saving some brown person’s country or the entire planet or whole other planets.  

I’m pretty sure there’s a whole genre of movies where average, blue-collar American white men pine after some woman who is probably too good for them and then a whole lot of stuff happens in the middle where she realizes whoever she’s with is a dick and she should be with the protagonist instead so the average guy can get the girl.

I’m pretty sure there’s a whole genre of movies where average, blue-collar American white men – who are usually from Chicago or Boston – go into a life of crime for some noble reason (or not) and we sit for 90 minutes rooting for a “hero” who is literally breaking the law in every frame and/or killing people.

Chris Pratt sounds like someone strapped him in to a chair and made him watch Moonlight for 17 days so now he forgot that Hollywood is literally founded on white mediocrity.  But wait!  There’s more:

“I really feel there’s common ground out there that’s missed because we focus on the things that separate us,” he said. “You’re either the red state or the blue state, the left or the right. Not everything is politics. And maybe that’s something I’d want to help bridge, because I don’t feel represented by either side.”

I actually do think there’s common ground out there, and the common ground is the provable fact that the vast majority of Americans are a lot less prosperous than they realize, especially in comparison to the corporations they work for where all of the money is being hoarded.  Our common ground as Americans would be redistributing the enormous wealth of this country so that we all could experience a higher standard of living.  Unfortunately, that’s not possible because the things that separate us (mostly race, class, education, and location) are effectively used by our political system to keep an Us vs Them society among average Americans.  This ensures that we don’t turn the country into a Haves vs HaveNots society where the overwhelming majority of Americans would define themselves as the HaveNots if they were thinking clearly and less concerned with how much they have in comparison to a neighbor who doesn’t look and/or think like they do.

But that’s not where Chris Pratt is.  Chris Pratt is one of those Everybody Is So Upset, Can’t We All Just Get Along? yokels who doesn’t want to deal with conflict.  He doesn’t have to deal with the day to day consequences of politics so to him, not everything is politics.  I’d love to see what kind of bridge he is planning to make with his everyman blue-collar American heterosexual movie that speaks to him and has never been done before repeatedly.  Let me know how it is.  I’ll go spend my HaveNot money on something else.
