thoughts on the rolling stone article? overall i thought it was fairly lowkey on the bs meter and thankfully focused the most on harry and his new album

What did you think about the Rolling Stone article? It could have been worse, right?


Welp, I was expecting that his promo would follow the established Zayn track in terms of the official narrative. But it was still very disappointing. I shouldn’t be surprised that many in the fandom are downplaying the obvious bullshit. Is it because it’s Harry and there’s the expectation of sincerity whereas we’re used to getting blatant lies from everyone else? Or is it because after Harry being muzzled for this long, it’s a big letdown for his official narrative to beam our exhausted asses back to 2012??

Let me be clear, this is no different than the Zayn articles we got. It’s the same awkward mix of official narrative nonsense and subtle as a sledgehammer rebranding. Harry is now the very deep hipster with well curated taste in music you’re not quite cool enough to be listening to. You are blessed that he’s sharing his philosophical musings with you. Same as how Zayn was rebranded as too damn cool for 1D. You were blessed that he shared his weed fueled musings with you. Yeah ok. It amazes me that people who are deep in the fandom think either narrative is authentic. And it’s not that Harry isn’t a deep hipster or that Zayn is naturally very cool. It that it’s soooo exaggerated because these days everything is written to an audience that is perceived to be rather dumb. It’s insulting.

One of the things that galled me the most was the latest outbreak of Herpes Haylor. I’m supposed to believe that the author thought reanimating that zombie that lived for 2 months 5 damn years ago was more intriguing than asking him about the more recent…

Really?? I know this is the elephant in the room. So in all honesty I didn’t expect this to be brought up. But don’t try to tell me that the new fans Harry is courting give a fuck about Haylor. What I hoped was that he’d be allowed to swerve on the whole thing. If you can’t discuss it honestly then let’s not discuss it at all, k? That’s obviously asking too much.

Also since when is evolved, woman respecting, Harry slut shaming women over the length of their skirts?? And a short skirt means you can’t bring her home to mother? What? The? Fuck? It happens every time with 1DHQ. They can’t frame their narratives from any pov other than sexism and misogyny. I’ve said before they are a very woman hating bunch of troglodytes. And he wrote songs about Kendall? Boring, vapid, vacuous, Kendall inspired uber-deep hipster Harry’s songwriting process? Lies! I hate, hate, hate, that Harry is being used to contribute to the mythos of this empty woman. Bitch, if you wanna be noted, do something noteworthy. Not cringeworthy (hello Pepsi debacle), but noteworthy. 

Another thing that bothers me is Ben Winston (and by extension James Corden) being allowed to use Harry’s feature to promo themselves. Not only that, but sleazy Ben is propping up the official narrative as well. That old story about Harry living in Ben’s attic was dredged up again. Because God forbid you think he was living with Louis. And not only that, the story has been embellished.

“He wasn’t always alone,” corrects Winston, “but it was exciting seeing the array of A-listers that would come up and sleep in the attic.”

Could he sound like any more of a creepy star fucker?? And lowkey imply that Harry just brought home strangers willy nilly and unannounced into his lovely quaint family home like he wasn’t raised right ?? I can’t stand him. And even if these words were put in his mouth, fuck him for allowing it.

So I think the fandom collectively has low standards if they’re ok with this. Because this article was crap. And it’s ok to call it crap. That’s no shade on Harry. Contrary to what many of you wanna believe, he’s still a cog in a machine much bigger than him. I’ll continue to enjoy Harry and the music and cheer for his success because regardless of the shadiness, he deserves to shine. Just understand that this article makes it crystal clear that Harry is in the same boat as the rest of 1D and that none of these guys are free from 1DHQ. That’s an unpleasant wake-up call, but it’s way past time to wake-up.

i don't know if ur watching but have you seen all the bamon speculation lately??? do you think there is actually a chance we can get a bamon endgame???

tbh, I have no idea why anyone thinks that’s going to happen or why endgame even matters to people. the story’s what matters. the story’s what stays. endgame is legit like winning a coin toss - you call heads and you get heads and you’re hyped for two seconds but then so what? it doesn’t change the story, it doesn’t change the moments that led up to it, it doesn’t change the things you felt or the lessons you learned or the transformations (or lack thereof) you watched these characters go through. shitty ships are endgame all the time - that doesn’t make them not shitty, and that doesn’t cheapen the journey non-endgame ships went through and how that journey made you feel. characters aren’t real. ships aren’t real. a ship being endgame doesn’t mean those characters are out there existing together once the show’s over - they legit end with the show. but how they affected you and what you learned about yourself through them? that’s what lasts. that’s what matters. 

so bearing all that in mind, bamon randomly being made endgame in the last five minutes of TVD doesn’t really do anything for me except give us childish and ultimately meaningless ammo against other ships - it just really doesn’t matter. if they wanted to do romantic bamon, they needed to do an actual, purposeful, non-ambiguous romance arc for them that unfurled over more than the last two episodes so we could observe things and feel things, and instead they did an entire final season of bonnie having no life outside of enzo and damon clinging to the concept of elena. so nah, i don’t think we’re getting a bamon endgame, and more importantly, even if we did, it’s so last second that it’d literally be nothing more than a stat to fling around to rival fandoms. endgame doesn’t define a ship’s journey, a ship’s journey defines the endgame, and bamon’s romantic journey if they do this will have been so half-assed that the endgame feels pointless. 

the good news is that none of this should take away from how watching bamon made you feel and the thoughts and discussions it made you partake in and the friends you made along the way. TVD will go away (#bless). bamon will fade. de and sc and kc and be and bk and all of those things will fade, and you’ll completely forget about them, but the things you learned and felt will linger and inform future endeavors. i learned so goddamn much from being in this fandom and it’s made me a much better, more respectful, and more informed person than i was coming in. never forget that you’re the actual main character in a story - you, the reader, the viewer - and at the end of the day, a story’s only as valuable as its effect on you. bamon doesn’t need to be endgame to be a great story, because it brought you here and made you feel things and taught you that sometimes things with incredible potential aren’t realized for dumb reasons. so take that forward, and if you’re so inclined, be the person who recreates that potential and actually realizes it. 

but most importantly, know that the only endgame of tvd that actually matters is you.

Strange Sounds

I’ve been steadily losing most of my hearing from a very young age. I learned to talk and can still interact with people if I am wearing hearing aids but if I leave them out, I am totally deaf. Cannot hear a thing. Nada. Zilch. I used to have a roommate who would practice playing the tuba while I slept only ten feet away. This does suck sometimes because I can’t properly enjoy music (radio is just white noise to me) and it’s hard to hold down a job when your customers keep getting frustrated at your poor communication skills but usually I don’t mind it. I’ve always been the type who enjoys peace and quiet so when I’m home, I can take my hearing aids out and relax in total silence.

As you may have gathered from the title, the problem with this is it’s impossible for me to tell if that silence is empty or not.

I first started suspecting that something may be wrong the first time I had a woman over at my new house. It was a nice, medium sized dwelling in a small town that I inherited from my grandpa. I was in the bedroom and things were getting kind of hot between me and the young woman I brought home when she suddenly stopped and motioned for me to put my hearing aids in, which I did. She was scared when she spoke.

Hallways (NSFW Nessian Halloween Special) [College AU]

A little Halloween special for Nessian cause I’m complete trash for them ;)

I hope you guys like it!

None of the characters used are mine. All copyright of Sarah J. Maas.

Enjoy!


College AU in which Nesta and Cassian are dating.


Nesta only had one goal in mind for the Halloween party that night.

To make Cassian grovel at her feet for the fight they had a few nights ago.

The fight still didn’t make sense to Nesta. She had come home from work and so had he when they were both suddenly in a screaming match. She admits that they were both stressed from the workload that they were receiving. But Cassian had no rights to start the fight. He wasn’t the only one that was tired, she was to.

So she had kicked him out and, from her sisters’ words, he had been staying with Rhys and Feyre for the past week. Feyre had been telling her that he was absolutely miserable but Nesta wanted to  pull it out. To make him wait until the Halloween party that she had been looking forward to for months.

Nesta had asked her sisters to find her the most indecent costume ever, a nurse costume that she knew would make Cassian do almost anything. And with her sisters’ help, they had made her look absolutely undeniable.

“Do you think Cassian would react somehow?”

Feyre snorted as she looked at her older sister through the mirror while she did her hair.

“Nesta, you could show up dressed as a sack of potatoes and he’d still grovel at your feet for forgiveness.”

Nesta gave her a nonchalant shrug and a small smirk, “Better to make him really regret that fight then.”

Feyre shook her head with a small smile, knowing already that she would be able to hear the couple all the way to her and Rhys’s house.

———————————————————————————————————The Archeron sisters made it to the Halloween party just as guests dressed in all sorts of things started flowing inside. The thumping of the music could be heard from outside along with the loud chatter from the people inside.

Nesta fixed her hair once more with the small mirror of the car as Elain and Feyre did the same. They didn’t have to worry about a thing since their boyfriends would practically do anything for them. But Nesta still felt doubt every once in awhile about her and Cassian’s relationship. She always thought she wasn’t enough for him.

You’re more than enough for me, Nesta. You’re everything I wished for and more.

Those were Cassian’s exact words whenever she brought the subject up with him. And he would shut her up real well with the activities they did after.

“I’m going to love watching Cassian completely turn dumb from the sight of you,” Feyre muttered while she packed her things in the small bag she brought.

“Then what are we waiting for? Let’s go,” Nesta said with mischief in her voice. She, honestly, had missed Cassian but she wanted to see the look on his face once he saw her. People would call her petty but she hadn’t had this much fun in awhile. Especially with a man like Cassian who would return her attacks with equal ones.

This was going to be a fun night.

———————————————————————————————————

Cassian kept glancing at the club entrance over and over again. He wanted to see his girlfriend, what she was dressed up as and, honestly, just her.

He regretted every word he said the other day during their fight. He had no rights to let out his stress at her in that way. She was just as stressed as he was and she never did such a thing to him.

Idiot. Idiot. Idiot.

He stared at the three males standing before him, rolling his eyes as two were texting their girlfriends and one was on the dance floor already with his girlfriend.

Lucky bastards.

If only you didn’t fuck up that night, Cassian, his mind reprimanded him.

Cassian didn’t bother taking his eyes off the door. He watched as people walked inside dressed as monsters, fairies, mythical creatures, whatever. He himself was dressed as a firefighter. But, of course, he wasn’t wearing a shirt. He only had a pair of black pants with orange suspenders going up his chest and down his back along with a yellow helmet on his head.

Where is she?

Only then did he see his girlfriend walked, dressed in the most seductive costume he had ever seen.

God help me, I’m going to have blue balls for the rest of the night.

THE SOUND OF YOUR VOICE (part 6)

Gail let out a soft moan as she leaned into the kiss, wondering why they hadn’t done this sooner. She just wanted to keep kissing Holly.

But Holly pulled back after just a few seconds, a look of contemplation and distress on her face.

Gail figured she knew exactly what was wrong. “I’m not just experimenting,” she said softly. “If you’re worried about that. I’m not.”

Holly shook her head. “It’s not that,” she said. “That didn’t even cross my mind. I know you aren’t, Gail.“

Now Gail was confused. She placed a hand on Holly’s cheek. "But you are worried about something.”

Holly nodded. “Me,” she said, sounding close to tears. Gail could see them start to form in her brown eyes.

age of ultron review: at least we know this is the last run

okay so just to preface, this is probably going to be like two thousand words of various iterations of ‘??????’ that can be summed up with this picture:

Okay. First off, sorry, I don’t like getting things like this in my inbox, because I’m told the same thing everyday, so sorry if you can’t send anymore messages; I don’t want to have a straight on argument in my inbox. But here lemme answer these for you.

Alright. So anon, you’re telling me things that I’ve heard from thousands of people, and if you’re thinking I’m going to take down my long sappy post about them, you’re wrong. 

Whatever Deo did to your friend or what not, is a thing of the past. Has your friend talked to them recently? Has your friend ever thought of trying to start over, like I did? I’m not forcing them too, but grudges against people are…really unneeded; we’re all human anon, and we all mess up. I’m human, your friend’s human, Deo is human. 

Look, I don’t think you can really compare this to someone being stabbed. That’s going from a 5 to a 110 in two seconds in comparison.

And yes, I can tell people to give Deo a chance, because there are people out there who have no idea who Deo is and are actually genuinely curious about them, but end up being told the Deo is a “horrible person” without them even sending them one message? And that callout post? It’s old, it was taken down by the OP who even said to stop spreading the information; it’s out of date! But some butthurt people brought it back just to tell others and warn them about the “terrible things Deo has done” almost more than 2-3 years ago.

They are 17, they are about to leave highschool, and they have changed in so many ways. We all have done dumb stuff when we were younger. We aren’t perfect, and I’m sorry your friend doesn’t seem to be on good terms with Deo, that’s your friend, not me. And did I tell you to look at my post or read it? No. 

I’m sorry if this comes off as rude and if it does, I didn’t mean for it to, but I am fucking sick and tired of people telling me “OH LOOK OUT FOR DEO”,  “THEY’RE GOING TO BETRAY YOU” or, “WELL I DONT WANT TO BE FRIENDS WITH THEM FOR REASONS 1,2, and 3″ 

It’s gets me aggravated, that people won’t give more than one chance or even better that people won’t treat other’s on how they want to be treated. 

I’m done with this over reoccurring issue. Deo is my friend, I will tell people about how good of a friend they are. I am not forcing it on others or lecturing, I am literally being a nice friend and telling other’s on how they are a nice friend who deserves so much more than what they have to deal with.

Watching Luke Cage last night, unspoiled:
  • Me: They're giving this guy a boatload of audience-sympathetic dialogue. They really want us to like him or trust him a whoooole bunch all of the sudden. They're pushing him as a "good guy" way too hard. Something screwy is gonna happen.
  • Husband: Yeah? This episode?
  • Me: Yeah. Probably. This or the next. Probably this one. He's either gonna die or he's a bad guy. Definitely one or the other. They're pushing it way too hard.

  • Me: A'scuse you what now? 😒

  • Husband: With what?
  • Me: I don't know. He patted and talked about his sidearm earlier when he was talking to his partner, maybe he's gonna shoo—oh wait he's messing with his tie—

  • Me: Damnnnnn.
  • Husband: Damn. Much cleaner.
  • Me: Yeah, he's totally working for the bad guy. And this episode has at least one more effed up thing coming too.

  • Me: *pauses to double check* Still got ten minutes left.
  • Husband: 😳 Oh crap, yeah.
  • Me: Sorry, want me to shut up?
  • Husband: Nah, I know who I married.
  • Next scene: *Detective Guy goes and spills all kindsa stuff to Cottonmouth*

  • Me: Don't make fun of me.
  • Husband: 😂

Latest patch brought one of the best things you could ever think of: more asura expressions!! I’ve been literally screaming at the monitor for some time now. ISN’T THAT AMAZING. LOOK AT THEM.

Didn’t take me too long to notice because I’d often stare at my baby with a dumb, happy smile. Now she’s even more presh. ;w; <333

Also showing off her new ears lmao. I had a self style kit around, finally gathered my courage to use it. Yet to find a hairstyle that fits her better than this one.. :’I There’s a few really good ones but none of them are meeting my expectations on how this particular Zadaam should look.

P.S. Kindly forgive the shittiness of screenshots, I’m still trying to learn how to do and how not to do them edits.
