my support was no less genuine

Harry is obviously grateful for everyone’s support. He couldn’t have possibly made this clearer in every single interview he’s given and he has gone out of his way to actively defend his primarily young and female fanbase from judgement and derision of obnoxious male ~real music fans~ who try to handwave girls’ interest in Harry as being less worthy than their own.

Consider your expectations as a fan. Needing him to tweet “thank you” again and again, turns what’s supposed to be your genuine enthusiastic support, freely given, into transactional “I don’t feel validated in response to this specific self-appointed fan-victory, so I’m upset”.

Harry is allowed to be lowkey on social media. He’s not a machine you put support coins in until acknowledgement tweets falls out.

guess it’s time for my first follow forever with this blog! :’) I could never imagine I would reach this milestone so fast, especially after remaking and turning my writing around. and even if numbers are not really that important, it is still heartwarming and incredibly touching to see 6,000 people giving me and my writing a (second) chance.

If I have to read another post about how Harry doesn’t care about his fans, I might actually pull my hair out. You can’t compare Harry and Niall. You just can’t. Niall uses a lot of social media and has throughout the hiatus; Harry hasn’t. To be honest, I don’t think that’s not his thing. I mean, God forbid we recognize Harry and Niall as individuals, right? Harry speaks often about how grateful he is for his fans, and the people who have supported him. And I’m tired of everyone trying to make him jump through hoops just to prove himself. If you think he’s an arrogant popstar after this promo season; after all his humility, and vaguely self-deprecating remarks, then I don’t know what to say!! Harry’s not Niall; he’s not going to do Q&A’s, or call us lovers, or whatever. Niall’s not Harry, either. Social media silence would kill him; that boy tweets about everything. But that doesn’t make either of them less or more genuine. I’m just tired of them being compared. They don’t compete with each other; they support each other. Why is that not enough?

Quick centering exercise

1. List five things you are grateful for right this second. Maybe it’s ‘my good health’ or ‘my warm bed’ or ‘my fun workmates’ or ‘my new jacket’. 

2. List four things you’d like to achieve today. Maybe it’s just ‘take a shower’ or ‘go for a walk’, or maybe it’s ‘follow up a resume’ or ‘talk to my friend about my issue with them’. 

3. List three things that you’re worrying about right now, and in a few words why you’re worrying about each. Be completely honest with yourself. 

4. List two people who genuinely lift you up and make you feel supported, hopeful and happy. 

5. Write this down - “I am a person with all of the colours within me. I’m capable of many different lives, and I get to decide which one I live.” 

6. List two things you do that you’d like to do less in life. Maybe it’s ‘do less late night shifts’, or ‘ stop hanging out with that person who brings me down’ or ‘argue less with my sibling’. 

7. List three things you do that bring you genuine self-esteem. Maybe it’s ‘working out’, ‘playing a computer game’ or ‘finishing a book’ or ‘making a good coffee’.

8. List four things would like to improve upon. Maybe you’d like to be more organised, maybe you’d like to get up at the same time each morning, maybe you’d like to listen more and talk less. 

9. List five things you genuinely love about yourself. Maybe you’d do anything for your mother, maybe you are really good at helping a friend in a crisis, maybe you’re a very loyal employee, maybe you love your handwriting, maybe you like the scar on your leg. 

10. Lastly, write this down - “I am powerful. I am strong. I am full of all things - love, sadness, light, anger, fever. I deserve happiness and only I can create it.”

Kind of funny how you disabled anons - I really don't believe your story happened, but if it did happen then I'm sorry it did, and I don't want you to believe that all Trump supporters are like this - We all live in America and breathe the same air and stuff. We want equality and freedom just as much as you do, but I think that your story paints all Trump supporters in a negative light. I haven't looked, but have you reached the same conclusion, or are you at least willing to accept that?

I don’t believe that all Trump supporters are bad people. One of my close loved ones voted for Trump and that doesn’t make them a bad person, and neither will it stop me from caring about them. My intention behind the comic was not to vilify Trump voters, I merely wanted to share a true experience that happened to me.

The man who verbally attacked me with racist slogans also happened to reveal himself as a Trump supporter, but I don’t believe all Trump supporters would act in this way towards a minority on a bus. I’m genuinely sorry if you don’t believe me, but the fact of life is that minorities have racist encounters all the time, and just because you’ve never seen them doesn’t make them less real.

i 100% appreciate dan's work and the effort he puts into his stuff but let's get real for a second. ISG is getting old and he's running out of ideas. that's just a fact, it's obvious. ok it was a funny video sure but reading a bunch of random emails and coming up with a joke (always self-deprecating and not very original, let me just say) isn't a very hard thing to do. There are youtubers out there who post every! single! day! and have interesting and entertaining content, unlike dan.

i agree that isg isn’t the most original content but you gotta understand that the reason he makes them is that there are tons of people who genuinely love those videos. it’s the same thing with the sims, a lot of us active phandom members might be sick of it but that’s still their most popular gaming series overall, and so of course they’re gonna continue making them. the internet support group is very well received among the majority of his viewers, particularly in the youtube comments + the fact that he gets thousands of emails. and, really, is this any less original than the neverending q&a videos other youtubers make?

isg def isn’t my favourite dan content, but i don’t think it’s right to say he’s out of ideas (you’ve seen his list, he clearly isn’t). he uploads other stuff as well, it’s all ok, we can survive some isg once in awhile 

Progress

Some of you might know already that our first update for the Pilot is scheduled for April 1st, which is a little less than a month away! We’ve been working really hard for the last eight months or so to conceptualize, design, write, and draw the first part of what we hope is going to be a long-form project that will energize and entertain for a long time to come. 

Thank you so, so much for your support — it’s really incredible to see, and the comic hasn’t even started yet! It means the world to have people genuinely excited for Parlor Tricks. 

The Pilot, which will consist (to my best estimate, at least) of 20-or-so updates on a weekly schedule, is enormously experimental. Neither of us have done a webcomic before, and the Pilot is definitely a track record of our learning experience. Who knows what kinds of things we’ll attempt in the future? 

This blog will continue to host updates, character sheets, progress shots, and whatever other snippets we can think of. We might answer asks in character on occasion. In the meantime, get ready for the Parlor Tricks pilot — Munch Ado About Nothing.

While working in a restaurant, a young Pesci apparently told a mobster that he was funny—a compliment that was met with a less-than-enthusiastic response. Pesci relayed the anecdote to Scorsese, who decided to include it in the film. Scorsese didn’t include the scene in the shooting script so that Pesci and Liotta’s interactions would elicit genuinely surprised reactions from the supporting cast.

Never Him

“I looked for you last night”
Jughead whipped around at the soft voice he knew all too well.

There was Betty ,tight blonde pony tail, pink cardigan and those damn long eyelashes framing her big green eyes.
“I thought we were going to meet up at the drive in, I know I was late I’m sorry, I had to .. handle some things.”
He noticed the way her fingers twitched slightly and she looked away chewing on her bottom lip. He always found himself staring at that bottom lip.

Snapping out of it he shook his head
“I was in the control panel, I had to get it set up, just wanted to spend a little extra time in there..” he trailed off thinking about his temporary home

“Sorry I missed you I didn’t see you when the movie started so I figured something came up”
He raised an eyebrow questioning her funny behavior.
“Yeah” she nodded “ just my mom being .. my mom” she shrugged her shoulders with a half smile.
“I wanted to be there though I know it means a lot to you, I should’ve been more supportive there’s just been a lot on my mind lately l, but I promise starting right now you have my undying attention.”

She held her pinky out for him to take
Rolling his eyes he linked the little digit with hers.
He felt like a complete idiot but the genuine smile and giggle that followed made it all worth it.

Pulling him along by his pinky she rattled on about new information for the blue and gold and how they needed to start looking into the blossoms regarding Jason’s murder.

“I think if we do this together it’ll be less suspicious then if I go alone.”

Having zoned out jughead only caught the ending of her sentence but almost involuntarily he wrapped the rest of his fingers around her hand and nodded to her

“Yeah, together is definitely a better idea”

Fuck I really like Hux bcs I hate what he stands for but it's nice to see more villains in Star Wars that have passion and not just "I'm bad" like less flat characters on all sides

i can see that, but my problems arent with the writing because although he’s just a space nazi he isnt meant to be sympathetic at all (from what i remember anyway). he’s a villain and the fascist elements being brought to the forefront are just an easy way to get the audience to hate him. my problem is the people that genuinely like him for who he is and support him and think he’s UwU my cute and precious smol bean when he’s just a nazi

Is it bad that I want Liam to stop talking about Zayn altogether? I feel like they went from one extreme to another in .5 seconds and no one is buying it now. A good 98% of the tags that I've seen in the "pillowtalk is my favorite song" post were either "too late", "damage control", or "we still remember what you said". Unless we get a reunion we're they both seem comfortable. I'm going to side eye his genuine their "support" is. The titanic interview was just heartbreaking . 💔

Well, and see, I’m going to guess that’s nahhhht the attitude that Team Loammy is looking for.  Fandom sentiment seems a smidge better now, but I think its more or less a wary one? After seeing the way the last week has played out, this is my general attitude to Team solo!Loammy:

But I wonder if they feel they fucked this up? Loammy won’t have the #1 spot, but he’s going to debut somewhere in the top 10 in the US and UK markets (which is good!), though the real test will be how it fairs on radio and second week sales. 

It seems pretty clear they’re reading fandom comments (hi Doyen Global interns!), but they reallyyyyy need to regroup and do better then whatever this goat rodeo is. As far as fandom is concerned, you fucked this shit up, my dudes - now’s the time when you maybe need to earn your paychecks and fix it. 

1,700 FOLLOWERS?!

wOAH WAIT WHAT? Oh my god what did I do to deserve this? WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE YOU MARYNATORS? I DON’T FUCKING DESERVE YOU ALL!

Thank you so much for this! When I started this I never thought I would never reach something like even 500 followers, but now I achieved 1,700 and I am so amazed! Seriously, you all have been nothing but supportive and loving. I know it’s been a rough few weeks with all the hate but I am so happy to know that there are those who genuinely care about us!

I am so, so grateful to have you all, my beautiful Marynators. You motivated me when I’m feeling low and gave me confidence to write. In fact, you gave me so much more confidence overall. You made me feel normal and a bit less weird. You guys gave me the courage to talk about my passion for writing, for being an obsessed fangirl openly. Without your support, I would still be in my shell but you… you allowed me to open up and share my stories, my love and passion, to the world.

So I am so grateful for you all.
Thank you so, so much! I don’t deserve any of you!

So. You saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. You want to watch it on repeat for twenty four hours for the rest of your life. You’ve seen the light. Newt Scamander is the purest cinnamon roll that you have ever laid eyes on. You suddenly are craving weird shaped bread. It’s a relatable feeling.

And, because you aren’t a shitty human being, Credence’s existence makes your soul hurt. This poor fucking cinnamon roll. Too good for this world, much too pure. This poor baby spends half his screen time having a panic attack for godssake. Get this boy a happy modern au stat.

But here’s the thing. You don’t give him a happy au.

You ship him with his abuser instead. Yeah. Yikes.

Secularism as religious anarchy and the case for state atheism

A state is secular when it takes no position on religion per se and allows it to be practiced freely within the confines of supposedly areligious law. In a sense, we can say there is religious anarchy under secularism, in the same way there’s political anarchy in the absence of a state or international anarchy in the realist conception of international relations. When the state takes no position on religion, there will be a natural power-struggle between the religious factions (this is true of anarchy generally). Religion becomes more antagonistic under secularism as different groups are motivated to engage in public displays of religiosity in order to “mark their territory”. However, there can’t be any internal religious conflict in a nation which is entirely composed of atheists or a single religion by definition (but there can be disagreement over the interpretation of religious doctrine, which makes atheism superior in this respect). Being less inherently tribal, Northern Europeans are probably more compatible with secularism than any other ethnic group on the planet although it still may not be optimal, aside from the fact that we have millions of highly tribal religious aliens in our midst. At the other end of the spectrum of clannishness, it is a virtual necessity for Arabs to have a single authoritarian state religion to preserve an inherently fragile social order prone to war and tribalism.

We should also bear in mind as racial nationalists that an illiberal state ideology acts as a cultural barrier to immigration and racial mixing. State atheism would amount to a public war on modern Christianity, Judaism and Islam. We would be able to (with the White veneer of non-discrimination against any particular religion) close down all of the communist churches, subversive synagogues and murderous mosques. Some will claim that this would not be pragmatic; “the orthodox Jews would emigrate and the Muslims would riot”. I say…GOOD! If there’s one thing our nation doesn’t need more of, it’s Jews, and rioting Muslims will just stiffen the spines of Whites everywhere; a necessary condition for the expulsion of aliens. Not hearing treasonous gabble about “one world” and “equality” so common from our pulpits would be a mental detox for millions of Whites. Whatever merits the old Germanized Christianity had, it has none of them today; modern Christianity is little more than communism. Any Roman Catholic who listens to the deranged ramblings of a fool like “Pope” Francis knows this to be true and the “Sharia for Britain” Anglican church isn’t any better. If a despicable Kike like Peter Beinart is lamenting the decline of modern Christianity, even the most committed Christian patriot must see that it is a severe psychological barrier to White racial consciousness.

While I believe that state atheism amounts to upholding truth over suicidal relativism (secularism) or falsehood (religion), Christian traditionalists should prefer state atheism to secularism, for the same reason that a political traditionalist should prefer abolishing the House of Lords in its current degenerate form to its continued existence. The anti-British traitors used to want to abolish the Lords but they devised a far more devious and subversive strategy; take over the HoL and use it for their nefarious ends. This is exactly what happened to the Anglican church, which is not these days “The Tory party at prayer” but “The communist party at prayer”. Every genuine Christian traditionalist should want to extirpate the hostile religions of Judaism and Islam from this nation and state atheism would provide a solid pretext for doing so.

Despite my atheism, I support the maintenance of religion in alien lands. The stronger their religious belief, the less success they will have in science and they will remain backward while we in the West advance. Their religion also discourages race-destroying miscegenation and strengthens the Political (or friend-enemy distinction) which is as fundamental to meaningful human existence as anything else. Alien religions in the third world will continue to keep their populations down with internecine clan warfare and the intermittent creation of new aggressive sects, usually along ethnic lines. Religion will continue to destroy their racial unity, cull the herd and keep them backward & superstitious (i.e. not a threat to the White West).

Under state atheism, all public and quasi-public promotion of religion (such as the operation of a church, synagogue or mosque) would be banned. Religion may continue to be taught in public schools but from a critical perspective. However, truly private religious beliefs would not be persecuted. Whites would able to practice Christianity with their families in a far healthier environment than those found in most modern churches. Jewish and Muslim law courts, Jewish and Muslim religious slaughter, religious provisions in prison, male and female genital mutilation & religious garments would be banned, which would undoubtedly increase the rate of Jewish and Muslim emigration (and reduce their rate of migration) dramatically. Alien religious buildings and monuments shall be destroyed (aside from Christian ones, which will become museums).

Religion will have a difficult time in any nation with free speech, the internet and a culture that is antagonistic toward it, unless religious groups culturally secede and become hyper-insular (like the Amish) and preferably aggressive (like Orthodox Jews or Muslims). A nationalist state could attempt to foster a revival of our more vigorous and naturalistic European religions which would be less vulnerable to scientific attack and more conducive to racial progress. Many of the great political theorists such as Machiavelli have claimed that a state religion is necessary to maintain a strong moral order and promote unity. I agree with this claim, although I think “religion” can be used interchangeably with a useful social morality or system of values. I regard karmic reincarnation as being the most socially efficient metaphysical speculation about the afterlife and would be happy if a plausible case could be made for it but I do not believe that a such a case could be made on the evidence. The plausibility of atheistic materialism creates a sense of nihilism in most intelligent, rational people.

Although idiotic “new atheists” will not accept it, a tendency for religious belief is highly heritable. Most human beings are inclined toward the mysterious and something “greater than themselves”. I use the term “religion" in a loose sense; there are plenty of nominal atheists who are fanatical egalitarians and moral universalists, beliefs which are far more absurd and contradicted by evidence than theism, which is a doctrine that has not been refuted by science because it has proved thus far to be a non-scientific claim. Belief in a non-scientific claim is a lot more intellectually respectable than belief in a blatantly unscientific claim; the latter requires truly titanic levels of delusion when we are dealing with a belief like the veracity of human equality, which is not just untrue but the most obvious major falsehood that has ever been declared a truth.

The reason for the preponderance of the religious instinct in human beings is simple; the theistically-inclined have had far more success in Darwinist terms, a wonderful irony. Atheists like Richard Dawkins who long for “the end of religion” are going to be bitterly disappointed; contraception and abortion-loving atheists will select themselves out the gene pool, while the religious brown hordes pour in, slit their throats and enslave their women. The funny thing about Dawkins is that he’s essentially a pious, evangelical atheist; very much religious in nature. He would have surely been a high-ranking member of the Anglican clergy had he been born in the recent past. The religious instinct is strong and cannot be extirpated in maybe 95-99% of the public because it has been so useful to us evolutionarily. This is why I believe that state atheism in a White nationalist nation would result in a quasi-religious ethno-nationalism becoming culturally dominant which can only improve our chances of racial survival and prosperity. State atheism could lead naturally to a form of moral anti-realism, which would allow us to fight our enemies without philosophical guilt or pity.

I love fluffy pre Kerberos sheith but also playful Garrison role-play sheith. (´•ω•`c) (idk how they got the uniforms lol)

I can imagine Keith having special butterflies in his stomach when Shiro praises him because back at the garrison every authority figure would give him shallow approval for his piloting/fighting skills, but would always shadow it with complaints and disappointment about his “attitude problems”, “wasted potential”, etc. and being a lone wolf, he didn’t really have friends for support either, but Shiro was the only one who actually respected Keith as a person and genuinely believes in him, so Keith respects him back and doesn’t mind following his orders because he trusts him (what if Shiro is Keith’s first and only friend?)

Slightly less innocent version under the cut if you’re mature enough~ (• ε •)

This is kinda personal but how did you meet your little I'm trying to find a daddy a real one not one of those overly horny creeps and I just wanted a idea of where to start besides posting on tumblr

I don’t currently have a little. .. but the process of choosing one (or a daddy) should be approached with great patience above all else.

1.) Begin by just talking and getting to know each other. See if a chemistry of friendship is there. Does conversation flow natural? Do you get more than one word answers?

2.) Once you’re past step one you’ll get comfortable enough to start talking about personal things. A good daddy approaches this with understanding and interest. If he’s really into you he will offer support and seem genuinely concerned

3.) You’ll get to a point where you find yourself looking forward to talking. You might even get up early it stay up late…. and he will do the same

4.) Then move into other areas. . By this time you might be ready to get flirty.. get really serious about what you talk about. . Etc.. and things will move into a deeper space where you’re both only interested in each other.

My opinion: this whole process should take no less than 3 weeks. This gives you time to figure out each others schedules, how you react to certain things, if you’re compatible in many ways. . Etc.

If he wants to be your daddy within the first hour or two of knowing you. .. run away.

If he more often than not tries to get you to be sexual. .. run away. We all have needs and it’s nice to fulfill them, but if his tumblr is just full of reblogged porn and pictures of other littles. … if he wants to Skype to get off more than he does to talk or include you in his life. run away.

If he isn’t patient enough to respect your boundaries and feelings and such. .. run away.

A good daddy waits.
A good daddy shows you how valuable you are by being patient.
A good daddy respects himself enough to put your needs, feelings and desires as his first priority.

I know it’s hard to be lonely. Just do what’s even more hard for a little. .. and be paitent

The Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer has been out for less than 12 hours and I get on Tumblr to see endless posts of people complaining about Tony Stark, a post comparing Tony Stark fans to Donald Trump supporters, and anonymous hate mail in my inbox because I’m excited about Tony being in Spider-Man.

Like honestly let us like what we like guys, I’m so tired of this fandom. It’s okay if you don’t like Tony Stark, you don’t have to, but please stop trying to bring down and hate on the people who do. It’s like some people think we’re genuinely fundamentally bad people for liking a specific fictional character, and I don’t get it.
