“Yet there was a time when you could walk around London or New York and see these gaunt faces, marked with sarcomas, and everyone you hung out with was dying. The official culture was in denial. Sometimes it was easier to be. I remember seeing Derek Jarman at a play. At that point he was blind. I didn’t want to see him like that. And then my friend was queer-bashed on the way home. Freddie Mercury died. Keith Haring died. Eazy- E from NWA died. Denholm Elliott died. Rock Hudson died. Fela Kuti died. And my uncle who wasn’t famous or even my actual uncle died. One of my friends lost seven people who were all under 30.”
I want to talk about all the fucking powerful, badass women in Overwatch. You have a 19yo gamer who saved the fucking country from an Omnic invasion. You have a 60yo mother who’s still going strong on the battlefield, 40 years after she first stepped onto it. You have a woman who lost her parents at seven years old and resolved to dedicate her life to learning to save people.
They don’t even have to be fighters: in the latest short, Katya Volskaya looked Sombra right in the fucking eyes as Sombra was going to shoot her. She didn’t flinch at all. She didn’t cry or beg. She was cold, she was strong, she was what she needed to be - even if she’d lost that round.
I love that Blizzard created these incredible strong women. I love that there’s a spread of ages and that they resisted the urge to make them all sweet young nubile teenagers.
I thank TheNight130 for the “The Road To ElDorado” one! His hand lags a lot in this shot! ;D

The next time Grandpa grumbles about having to walk uphill to school every day, whip out this pic and show his ass what “uphill” truly looks like.
What you’re seeing above is the single route to get to Atuler, a clifftop village in southwest China. What you’re also seeing is children as young as six years old making the nearly half-mile ascent home via treacherous paths and that rickety-ass wooden ladder. It’s as scary as it looks; a reporter dispatched to the village reportedly burst into hysterical tears while attempting the climb (admittedly, tears are one of several liquids we’d burst into, were we to try). Meanwhile, the village’s schoolchildren regularly and fearlessly pull off this 90-minute reenactment of Cliffhanger, with heavy book bags in place of Stallone’s weighty pecs.
Atuler is home to a mere 72 families, most of whom make their living farming chili peppers. Though by the villagers’ own tally, they’ve “only” tragically lost seven or eight of their number to the murderous, greedy hand of gravity, many more have been horrifically injured by falls, and this combined with recent media attention spurred the Chinese government to make the climb safer. They did so by replacing the homemade (and oft-rotted) wooden ladder with a much sturdier (but equally terrifying) metal one, because no one ever said that safety couldn’t be accompanied by shitted pants.
After many years of traveling through the Delta Quadrant Janeway finally gives up reinforcing Starfleet Uniform standard. Now everyone on the ship goes about their usual business but in different outfits. Janeway gives orders in her sparkly white tuxedo while Tom Paris applies coordinates in an old fashion aviator jacket and goggles. B'Elanna figures out complex space-time equations while lounging in her pajamas all day in engineering. Seven of Nine discovers the fashionable comfort of a simple tank top with jeans. Chakotay decides to get in touch with nature and goes around the ship completely naked. The doctor now free of appearance standards gives up representing the typical humanoid form in favor of abstraction and edits his program so he’s nothing but a floating disembodied talking head. Only Tuvok and Neelix remain the same as the ship plummets further into unrestrained madness.
so i caved in and played mystic messenger again bc i uninstalled it previously and didn’t finish it… ngl i teared up trying to compile all these songs bc the emotions are too real;;
got a bit of inspiration from the reset theory and “seven still has feelings for you regardless of the route” theory haha;;
