I hate it when people say technology is taking away kids’ childhoods
If anything, it’s actually giving kids more of an opportunity to let their imagination out

A lot of times when I let kids play on my phone, they go for the drawing app.
I watched a girl on the bus write a silly poem about her friends and then laugh as she made Siri read it
I hear children say to their friends “hey, FaceTime me later” because they still want to talk face to face even when they’re far away.
I see kids sitting, who would feel lonely and ignored if it weren’t for the fact that they’re texting their friends who are far away.
Children still climb trees. They might just take a selfie from the top to show off how high they’ve gotten.
They can immediately read the next book of their favorite series on their Kindles.
Most kids would still be up for a game of cops and robbers. Or maybe they’d google rules to another game they haven’t played yet.
When children wonder why the sky is blue, they don’t get an exasperated “I don’t know” from tired adults. They can go on Wikipedia and read about light waves and our atmosphere.
They show off the elaborate buildings they created on Minecraft.

Technology isn’t ruining childhoods, it’s enhancing them.

What you should kinkshame the Batman villains for
  • Catwoman: furry
  • Joker: His entire existence
  • Two-Face: technically only has threesomes
  • Harley Quinn: her gross daddy kink
  • Poison Ivy: Tentacle porn but with plants
  • Riddler: his superiority complex
  • Killer Croc: ...cannibalism?
  • Penguin: an even more committed furry
  • Scarecrow: probably wants to fuck a skeleton tbh
  • Mr. Freeze: idk, unconditional love?

Finished this earlier than I thought I would and this time I actually like the result. i kind of like this gritty look.

I know Ivy wouldn’t really wear anything like this, but it was fun drawing her nonetheless. I kind of wanted to add a kiss of death tattoo on her as well, but couldn’t find a viable spot for it. Also her black fingertips are kind of a play on the saying that someone has a green thumb, except Ivy already is green skinned, so she gets black fingertips on all of her fingers ‘cause she’s powerful enough to have more than just a green thumb lol

What I Read This Week

I had a great time reading this week!

#FREEWHALESFROMBUTTS by cuttlemefish, Mature, 3.8k
It’s just another day at Martha’s Vineyard for Katsuki Yuuri and Viktor Nikiforov. On break from Yale and Harvard respectively, Yuuri and Viktor are ready to fall back in love and look good while doing it (or so Yuuri thinks until he discovers that his boyfriend wears pastel shorts with whales). Or the plotless (rich) preppy fashion AU inspired by some anons on Tumblr who decided we should discuss the horror of Vineyard Vines pastel whale-print shorts. #FreeWhalesFromButts 

I. Am. Screaming. I loved this fic, it made all my rich kid/Ivy AU dreams come true. Thank you Wrath for showing me this fic when I needed it most. #blessed #FreeWhalesFromButts

Raison d'Être by cutesudon (vityanikiforova), Explicit, 12k
President Nikiforov of Russia has a few weaknesses: premium rye vodka, an attention span of 30 minutes, and a torrid love affair with the Japanese Prime Minister.

You all HAVE to real this. Seriously. So, so incredible. I loved every minute of reading this. Such an amazing fic!

Don’t You Know That’s the Way Love Comes? by ken_ichijouji (dommific), Gen, 15k (WIP)
Deputy Director of the Parks Department Victor Nikiforov gets the surprise of his life when the city government gets a visit from a pair of auditors.

As always, this pic is BOMB! Loved the update, and this pic in general. SO funny, cute, and light! Must read!

Smile, Open Wide, Let’s See What’s Inside by stanzas, Teen, 13k
“You should propose with a tooth instead of a diamond on it,” Yuri suggests out of the blue, and sighs when the game character on his screen falls off and dies again. He’s stuck on level 86, and his death count is in the low thousands. Not that Yuuri’s keeping track. “It’s romantic.” “That might be one of the most repulsive ideas you’ve ever shared,” Yuuri tells him, without looking up from his phone.

The sequel to the infamous (and amazing) dentist AU!! I loved this fic a lot, if you liked the first fic you MUST read this update! :D

28 Tuxes by vodkawrites, Teen, 25k (WIP)
While planning his 28th wedding, Yuuri begins to wonder if he can ever find love for himself.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOOOD OMG!!!! This fic is so amazing, the last update KILLED me! I loved the movie, and this fic is even better. I can’t wait to read the final chapter!

“Be My Sex Coach, Victor!” by lucycamui, Explicit, 42k (WIP)
Yuuri Katsuki has always been his own worst critic, and a series of unfortunate short-lived relationships has him convinced that he flubs things more in the bedroom than out on the ice. So, of course it would turn out that the ridiculously charming Russian he’s matched with online is a pornstar. But perhaps, a ‘professional opinion’ is exactly what Yuuri needs…

I can’t believe how funny, sexual, and emotional this fic is!! Every update is amazing and I seriously can’t even believe this fic is real LOL You’ll never know how much you need this fic in your life until you read it! Check it out!

My Boy Builds Coffins by ken_ichijouji (dommific), Explicit, 9.5k (WIP)
Yuuri’s always dealt with a lot of (pun not intentional) grief about the family business, so much so he’s given up on making many friends or finding romance.But during one morning Starbucks rush, he meets a light-haired, blue-eyed man in dark colors and manicured nails who just might prove him wrong that no one will be able to get past his job.

Already a favourite of mine. Such a different AU that I was not expecting to love but I am so pleasantly surprised!! 

The Katsulanont Guide to Surviving College (Rice Cooker Required) by xylophones, Teen, 4.2k
A friendship told through three hamsters, a rice cooker, and the resurrected trade-and-barter system.

Such a fun and easy read. I love college!Yuuri and Phichit! 

Of Bright Stars and Burning Hearts by Reiya, Explicit, 167k (WIP)
Part 2 of the Rivals series and companion fic to ‘Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches’. One small change alters the course of both Viktor and Yuuri’s entire lives, throwing them into a bitter rivalry that spans across many years and creates a world where they both tell a very different side to the story.

no. nope. i…. i am dead.
