I wish you would write a fic where the ex-Vengers are hanging around Wakanda post Civil War talking and one of them wishes Tony never became Iron Man. Wanda decides to grant that wish and they end up in a universe where Iron Man isn't a thing, a world where Tony Stark survived Afghanistan but never made the armor. Bonus points if Stane was able to lock him out of Stark Industries and Tony disappeared from the public eye afterward.

Okay, to be honest, I don’t know if this took the turn you wanted to but hear me out.

Stane wins; Tony is quietly hustled away and kept in a workshop probably, where he has to work for Stane. Rhodey doesn’t get to see him ever and Stane got rid of Pepper because she was way too clever for Stane’s liking.

Iron Man 1 and 2 don’t really happen; maybe Vanko goes after Stane when he realizes that he got the arc reactor working somehow, but Tony isn’t in there at all.

Stane still deals with weapons, so the Ten Rings are still going strong, rebels all over the world can now take on any government army because they are armed just as well or even better as the soldiers and the world is a mess.

And then the Avengers happen. And it’s here that it gets tragic, because everything goes to shit.

The helicarrier crashes down when Clint takes out the second rotor, because no one is there to quick start it again. The remaining Avengers probably make it off in time, but Fury, Hill and Coulson not so much because they make sure everyone else gets saved first.

The world council still orders a nuclear hit on New York and since there is no Iron Man to carry the bomb into space it hits right where it was supposed to. The Avengers die in a fiery blaze; the Hulk most likely the only one who makes it out of there.

So the world might have averted this particular catastrophe at a very high price but it’s not even the worst one.

Project Inside is a go just a few years later, helicarriers without the repulsor technology but still able to fly and since Cap isn’t there to stop anything they wipe off a horrifying percentage of the world’s population.

Hydra wins.

(And because I am not a completely horrible person, that is gonna be the place where Wanda stops her little magic, but everyone remembers exactly how a world without Tony Stark would be and they are horrified. They never knew he had that much impact on anything even though they were right there.)

Just read a very interesting article and post that made me see red. Not reblogging a) because I don’t want the drama and b) because I don’t want that shit on my blog. But it made me think of something that people - readers and writers alike - should remember.

If you write/read dark fic to escape from the pain of your world it is okay.

If you write/read angst because it’s easier to cry over fictional characters pain than your own it is okay

If you use dark fics and angst as a way to escape from reality and feel human for five fucking seconds it is okay.

You are not less of an author or a bad reader if you prefer dark/angst over romantic fluff. You are not less of an author or a bad reader if you prefer romance and fluff. 

You are still a valid producer and consumer of literature, and a valid human being and no one should make you feel bad for that.

Power Rangers was a Japanese show. People are so angry about Ghost in the Shell but OKAY with erasing the fact that this property came to us from Japan and all of the characters were Japanese and had Japanese names before it was altered to please American audiences.One is okay and one isn't. Why is that?

I’m gonna make a list because it’s easier for me to get my thoughts down like that.

1) This Hollywood version of the Ghost in The Shell movie (as well as the original anime) takes place in Japan. You can see from the trailers that there’s a lot of Japanese culture and influence in the film. Not just the city but with the setting and some of the characters.

2) This Ghost in the Shell movie took some characters that were originally Japanese, with Japanese names, and made them white, while making a lot of side characters Japanese. I haven’t seen the movie but it implies the whole “white savior” trope. 

3) It’s another example of Hollywood using other cultures as backgrounds for white characters. Cultural appropriation. It’s using Japanese culture but with white people at the center of it?

4) The Power Rangers Movie (2017) is based off of the American Mighty Morphin Power Rangers tv show in the 90s, not the original Japanese show.

5) The MMPR show used some action-scene footage from the original Japanese shows for their own action scenes, but they didn’t use any of it’s characters (the yellow rangers was a guy in the Japanese series). These Rangers were different characters in an American setting, not a Japanese setting with American characters.

6) The MMPR show didn’t just use five white actors for the roles of the Power Rangers. It was a different time in the 90s, so yes, three of them were white, but one of them was African-American and the yellow ranger was Asian (plus the yellow ranger was a girl in this version). 

7) All the American Power Rangers seasons are pretty diverse, and the movie stepped it up to another level, by covering things that they wouldn’t be able to discuss on Nickelodeon or Fox Kids. And they made 4/5 Rangers poc.

8) Ghost in the Shell’s westernization of the original, only includes white people in lead roles, while the original MMPR included non-white main characters too, as does the new Power Rangers movie.

9) Plus, Ghost in the Shell takes place in Japan, so seeing all these white characters being at the center of the plot just seems so forced and unrealistic.

I have a flat obijime made of two cords woven together, and it's white and silver lengthwise; is it appropriate to use with a yukata? Also, I saw an infographic saying that tucking the ends of the obijime up is for celebatory occasions, down is for mourning, and one up one down is informal; is this correct? Lastly, my yukata fits me pretty precisely and the tucked part tends to rise underneath the obi so it isn't visible; is this okay?

Hi there :)

Usually, yukata obi do not require obijime. Most yukata are paired with hanhaba obi (narrow belts), tied with knots (like this one) not calling for obijime use:

Obijime use is still possible though!  But to keep it seasonnally nice, the best would be to use a summer obijime, which are kind of mesh and airy looking:

By the description you make of your obijime, I’d say yours is a pretty formal one (white and silver are formal colors) and not the best to use with informal yukata. The infographic you saw is indeed correct:

Woman kimono have to be dressed with a ohashori, a tucked part at the waist. But it’s only needed so the kimono sits nicely on wearer’s body and doesn’t unravel during the day. It’s better if it shows but not mandatory :)

Cat Grant Appreciation Week 1/7 
Obviously one of the big reasons I love Cat Grant is that she’s one half of my OTP and like 9 of the reasons that SuperCat is my OTP is Cat Grant but there is so much more to Cat than that. This Cat Grant Appreciation Week I will refrain entirely from using any supercat moments, in order to highlight how much I appreciate Cat Grant even without all the great shipping.

Favorite Scene: Cat x Kara scenes aside, Mrs. Grant, Queen of All Media, CEO of CatCo and spectacular journalist, is so amazing, in part for her ability to inspire others. Besides inspiring an unbelievable amount of fan art, she also inspires people. Thats why this is one of my favourite scenes because it’s one of the first times we see that side of her without the stone-cold boss persona she so easily hides behind. We see her brilliance in action, and the side of her that wants to do good and make the world a better place and inspire people to do better, which is one of the things that made me fall in love with her as a character in the first place.

the bonecharm crafting tutorial
  • the Outsider: attach an iron clasp at this end, then twist to seal the whalebone in
  • Emily: *does so*
  • the Outsider: now remember, if you can't get raw whalebone from a bone charm, store-bought is fine!
  • Corvo: whoa. what are you doing. is that sustainably-sourced whalebone? from a fair trade black market dealer?
  • Emily: you KNOW it isn't, dad
  • Daud: back in MY day we couldn't even make our own bonecharms
  • the Outsider: oh here we go again
  • Daud: if you wanted a bonecharm that made you swing your sword faster, you had to dig it out of a toilet!
  • the Outsider: okay that was ONE TIME I left one in there. and nobody asked you to dig it up
  • Daud: *staring out to sea* they call to me
  • Corvo: so does this chokehold

hi! okay you don't need to that in-depht with this at all, since there probably isn't much to say lmao, but okay so if MC had a really husky and low, pleasant voice, and then one day she made an really cutesy/ultra feminine sound by accident (when tripping, stretching, laughing or whatever up to u!), how would the rfa-v-saeran react to that? thank you very much, love your blog! <33

Thank you for the request and the kind words! Makes me all fluffy inside hahaha

Reactions to MC’s cutesy/feminine tone compared to her normal low tone


Zen: You two were just out walking one day for who knows what reason, when you accidentally tripped and shrieked in a high tone, he thought it was a bird at first. After being told that it was actually you, it takes a moment to register but then he’s super surprised and sort of turned on. He would love to hear more of that voice ;)

Yoosung: You’re just casually stretching and you accidentally made a cute sound to accompany it, Yoosung is then put into a state of shock as he can’t believe what he just heard. Now every time he sees you, his face goes red and he turns away because all he can hear is your voice echoing in his ear.

Jaehee: Thoroughly surprised by your laugh because it doesn’t match your appearance, she rather likes seeing another side to you. She’s finds you even more adorable and wants to pamper you. 

Jumin: Zen got sort of turned on however Jumin gets completely turned on. You were napping on the couch and you made a little noise in your sleep. From then on he just has the urge to cuddle you, he knows it’s weird but he doesn’t stop. Somehow, just somehow, he wants to get you to make those cute noises again.

707: Shook, absolutely shook. His emoji of his glasses breaking, but in real life. He doesn’t know how to react, should he react? He can’t even think of a joke to say, he’s just shook to the core. He’ll be a lifeless shell until he can fully compute what he just heard.

V: Laughs because he’s amused at how cute you sound when you and despite your embarrassment, he feels the need to tease you. Behind his usual angelic face, a little devil has been ignited as he continues to laugh at how cute you are. Of course, he’ll chuckle after he helps you up off the floor and makes sure you’re alright.

Saeran: He’s mildly shook but when he realises it was you that made that sound, he just gives you a weird look though really he’s just trying to figure out how you could make such a noise with that voice of yours. For the rest of the day, he’s just staring directly at you trying to piece together HOW.

Nomi’s Pride Speech

I’ve been thinking about my life and all of the mistakes that I’ve made – the ones that stay with me or the ones that I regret are the ones that I made because of fear.  For a long time I was afraid to be who I am because I was taught by my parents that there’s something wrong with someone like me – something offensive, something you will avoid, maybe even pity.  

Something that you could never love.  

My mom – she’s a fan of St. Thomas Aquinas and she calls Pride a sin.  And of all the venal and moral sins St. Thomas saw pride as the queen of the seven deadly sins.  He saw it as the ultimate gateway sin that would turn you quickly into a sinaholic.  But hating isn’t a sin on that list.  Neither is shame.  

I was afraid of this parade because I wanted so badly to be a part of it.  So today I’m marching for that part of me that was once too afraid to march and for all the people who can’t march:  the people living lives like I did.  Today I march to remember that I’m not just a me. I’m also a we and we march with pride.

So go fuck yourself, Aquinas.

Mutant House Hunters
  • Realtor: I think Charles and Erik will really like this house. It's perfect for a retired couple!
  • Charles: This is tiny.
  • Realtor: It’s 5,000 square feet. It has 6 bedrooms.
  • Charles: Everything looks really small.
  • Erik: And it’s made of wood.
  • Realtor: You wanted one that wasn't built with wood? Those aren't very common in this area…
  • Erik: Look at this Charles, even the furniture is wood. We can't live here.
  • Realtor: Okay, here’s house #2. It's a really nice contemporary house with bigger room like Charles wanted and more metal fixtures like Erik wanted.
  • Erik: It’s still made of wood.
  • Realtor: But look at all these chrome fixtures!
  • Erik: Chrome isn't magnetic.
  • Realtor: ... You want a house that's magnetic?
  • Charles: It needs more lamps too.
  • Realtor: Okay, house #3. This one is move-in ready. It has steel fixtures and beams for Erik, it has big bedrooms and lots of outlets to plug lamps into for Charles. I think they're going to love it.
  • Charles: It's okay, but I really wanted shag carpeting.
  • Realtor: But you're in a wheelchair? I didn't think you wanted carpet.

  • Charles: Why would you move the house?
  • Erik: Why <i>wouldn't</i> I move the house?

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Because when he woke up, he said, “No, I would never cross that road.” He ate beans for breakfast and snorted at those who crossed. And, when noon came around, he said “I would never cross that road.” He ate leaves for lunch and laughed at those who crossed. And when the evening came, he asked one of the crossers, “Say, what’s so good about the other side?” And the crosser waved him away and said, “What do you care? Someone like you would never cross this road.” And that made him angry, so he crossed the road out of spite. The other side was okay. He ate beans for dinner. And that’s why the chicken crossed the road.
