The Final Final 📝

I have one more final and another damn paper before I’m done with school and I figured, “maybe I should try to not fail?” 🤔 So a group of my friends and myself met up earlier to study (and talk shit) and I gotta say, it kinda helped. Let’s hope I feel the same way when that test hits my desk tomorrow morning 😂

When I do get my novel finished and published later this year, I’m going to include black characters of all shades, phenotype, and mixtures. I don’t know anyone who wants to outright exclude lighter skinned black people with a varied phenotype. I think it’s just as silly but I do expect to have darker skinned folks, particular girls, to be centered more. But I can’t pretend the lightest and most ambiguous black person doesn’t exist. I do think some people are quick to cry “colorism” when a black show or media has more light-skinned black people than they want even if it’s a good balance of the characters.

okay, this may seem extremely random... but if there are more metalhead black sails fans out there (or if someone should be looking for some not too deep pirate-y lyrics) take a look at Alestorm! They are AWESOME and all about pirates. "Keelhauled" reminds me a little too much of a certain pirate captain, actually :D

i just imagined the bs pirates headbanging and sing growling this while someone gets keelhauled what the what

this is like.. bear mccreary meets scottish pirate metal 

Finn : a complexe, well-rounded, loveable black character

Hux : a white guy we saw 3 minutes in the movie, who said 3 lines, so 
insignificant I didn’t even remember he was there after seeing the movie 

So this came out of the blue to me 

On the box of the Black Lion toy, if you read it, it says that the Black Lion’s powers are: teleportation. 

Since Shiro had suddenly disappeared in the last episode “Blackout,” I think Black was saving Shiro’s life when the large shock from Zarkon’s machine hit him. So when that happened, the Black Lion saved Shiro by teleporting him to the closest life force there was for him: Matt.
