no one has ever changed that

i know im just being an Annoying Trans w/ this but it kinda bothers me / hurts a little when u see wc fans, mostly cis wc fans lmao, who go “i HAVE to change redtail’s description. it makes no SENSE. he has 2 be a red tabby now he cant be a tortoiseshell tom bc i cannot fathom it.”

like….I Get that some ppl just dont know about trans stuff lmao and cis people are like, not used to it i guess? like they dont really think about that kind of stuff, but it just. bothers me as A Trans that one of the only characters in wc who could actually, genuinely, maybe possibly, be trans is constantly being crapped on by fans and has everyone trying 2 change his description.

like i get a lot of wc fans just dont KNOW about it but at the same time it kinda just bothers me lmao. esp when ppl say “well what if redtail is trans tho, thats how hes a tom and a tortie” the same fans will plug their ears like wHAT WELL MAYBE BUT I DONT LIKE THAT

Emma: You’re something else. I can’t imagine how much effort it must take to create something that can break the whole concept of time. I… I’m actually supposed to be dead now, just think about it.

Emit: Don’t put much emphasis on it, Emma. There’s no such thing as destiny, everything can be prevented.

Emma: Anyway… I’m now thinking about it and feeling like I’m one in a million. In a billion. No one has ever been saved from death by the eccentric time traveler.

Emit: You never know. Your perspective offers you a view on only one timeline, but there’s an endless amount of them. And you can change them. Tweak them without anyone to notice if you’re careful enough.

Emma: My head is now in a better place, but I still feel like it’s gonna explode. Also, thank you again for giving me your hoodie? Ha… we only know each other for less than a day and I’ve already stolen a half of your wardrobe.

Emit: Oh, no sweat. There’s enough clothes for every time and season in my luggage.

((to preface this my pronouns are they/them)) so wow… in order from bottom to top: one year on t, 7 months on t, and 1 month pre-t. i cant believe its already been a whole year since i started t!! it feels like it flown by.

im on a pretty low dose (0.5ml every 14 days) but i cant ever imagine going off of hrt. i didnt realize until i compared these pictures how much my face really has changed!! slowly, but surely. my voice has deepened a LOT this past year and thats the biggest change im happiest about. fat distribution has started but i feel like thats a change i wont see fully for another while yet.

my mental health has also improved so much. im so much happier than i was before starting - i cant even imagine how i would have gotten through the past year without hrt. although its still a day to day thing, im feel so much more confident with myself and actually want to be social and do things - something i never wanted before!! my journey hasnt been easy. theres been a lot of heartache and a lot of tears in the process to reach my goal - starting hrt. i can honestly i have had significantly less tears this past year aha.

so, my name is kindra, im 23 years old, nonbinary individual who loves their cats so much. im so glad to still be here to share my story with other queer folks 🐱❤

Skam cont.

*patiently waiting for Noorhelm-pictures/gifs*

(I’m a lazy fucker so I never found out how to do it myself.)

I’m so INCREDIBLY grateful for everything Skam has given me. Wow. This show will go down in tv history as one of the best ever created. I’m certain it will change the way we view tv. Television will never be the same again. It has opened up a new door when it comes to using social media as part of the television experience I’m sure many other tv shows now will follow.

I’m so effing emotional right now….😢

And I will forever be grateful that Julie gave us Noorhelm. 💛  To be completely honest, I don’t know what will ever top them in my mind. For me they just have it all: the intensity, the angst, the depth, the character development, the chemistry, the playfulness - everything. And they got such a beautiful ending with William now starting to be a part of Kollektivet. Not necessarily moving in together - not yet at least - but Eskild and Linn starting to see William for who he truly is, not just ~someone who’s taking Noora away from them~ but his own person: loving, deeply loyal once he gets to know you, playful, observing, thoughtful and smart. Also, it’s like….he just lost what’s left of his own family but now he’s starting to be a part of a new one. My feels. 😫  I just loved it. (Oh god, I’m crying again.) 💛  💛  💛

People always like to tell me what to do to pick my life back up. They point at everything that has been there for a long time. All I have to do to get better, is fit in.

But what they don’t understand is that I was meant to not fit in. I was meant to do a part in changing this world. And change cannot be brought from a place of doing what has already been done, from “fitting in”.

But unless humans can stop pretending they’re all good while pointing at the flaws of others with bright markers, I don’t think any change that can be made in a lifetime will be enough to make up for the pain I’ve already been put through.

We are so obsessed with keeping things the way they are, we will fight for things to stay familiar rather than risk taking a step into the unknown to save ourselves.
Humanity as it is now is quite well under way to it’s own annihilation. Be it by each other’s hand or the environment we corrupted.

And truth be told, I can’t consider that a bad thing. Humanity as it is now does not feel worth saving.

There are so many among us, especially the young people, who each hold a piece of the puzzle that is a utopia for humanity.

But our entire society is build to make people numb and blind to their inner strength.
If we want to stop knocking those puzzle pieces out of other’s -and our own- hands, we must be brave.
We must be brave enough to see the darkness within ourselves rather than within others. Pointing fingers only leads to pain and nothing gets resolved.

We love the thought of fighting evil, putting it into so many movies.
We try to fight the ‘evil’ in the world, but refuse to look at our own darker parts, or even believe we have them.

The best movie I ever saw on this was a child doing something kind for the darkness, and then everyone saw it wasn’t evil, but desperately trying to be not alone.

And that is what we need to realize. The dark, bad, wrong and evil we see is but a reflection of the pain of not being accepted.

So turn to yourself and start accepting those parts you have been told were wrong or bad. Then turn to your loved ones and accept those parts they have been told were wrong or bad. Then turn to the rest of the world and do the same.

If you can do that, if you even are just willing to try, maybe humanity might be worth saving after all.

We all hold a piece of the puzzle that can bring humanity to a better place.

The question is, are you willing to do what it takes to get there?

So, im gay. But I'm only 12 so most people dont believe me and are like "Its just a phase" but i know its not because being open and free to like who i like has made me the happiest ive ever been. What do i do?

First of all, I am hardly an expert on any of this, so please do not take my words as a final authority. But, I believe you’re the only person who knows you the best. No one else has authority over what you’re experiencing. For me, I started realizing I liked boys at around 8 or 9, and it was confusing but I was also alone and had no one to bounce my experience off of. And also, who you like is not a set thing. It can always change and shift, so if you identify as gay right now, that’s awesome! If that’s not how you identify later in life, that’s great too! Sexuality can be fluid. There’s no pressure and however you identify as at a certain time, that’s valid cause you know you best. If this identity is bringing you the most happiness, it sounds like that’s the thing to listen to, but again, I don’t have authority to say. Proud of you for being unafraid to openly start asking questions about this. The journey in figuring yourself out never truly ends! I hope no one pressures you in any way in determining your own identity!

What i learned from my psych teacher today:

 Loving someone shouldn’t hurt. But falling in love isn’t easy either, after a while it becomes something you’ll have to choose to be committed to and that makes it beautiful.  What happens after you tell someone you love them is what matters most; does silence follow? Do they say it back?  There’s no easy way to love, you will go through rough patches, but loving them shouldn’t hurt. Love should be a two way street, if they don’t put in the effort you do, and you’re not happy, leave. You deserve someone who makes you feel like you’re easy to love. It shouldn’t make you feel like your heart can’t do it anymore. Wait for the person who won’t break your heart. You’ll find them, i promise. Save your best words for them. Look forward to loving them through their best and worst. Wait for the person who makes waking up in the morning not a chore. Wait for someone you kiss goodnight and open your eyes to every morning. Wait for the day you won’t be scared they’ll leave. Wait for them. It’ll be worth it.

hey hello here’s the car boys unifying theory, i made a fun corkboard with the thread everywhere just like them conspiracy theorists in the movies

spoilers for the finale of car boys & the stolen century arc of the adventure zone follow

the crutch of this theory rests on the the two endings being separate timelines: the boystos/separation timeline (the bad ending) [the ending shown before the credits, when griffin and nick are separated and set adrift in endless emptiness] and the candle in the wind timeline (the true ending) [the after-credits ending, griffin and nick stuck in the car together, perpetually fleeing from the blob through the time ring] {there is no good end}

the separation timeline / bad end

  • most of what happens in this timeline to the boys is based off this video by youtube user brockrin- which the boys have tweeted about so by my standards its canon plflfnfft
  • to sum it up- alone for an eternity in endless Nothingness, the boys become the bustos-  nick 1.0 and griffin 2.0- and attempt to go back and stop themselves in the past from fucking everything up, but fail
  • this timeline (im sorry for homestuck terminology but,) is a stable time loop, nothing ever changes- its them going around and around again trying and failing to stop themselves. its bad
  • but its important to note that griffin and nick were not the only ones in the time ring when they got separated- which brings me to Ball
  • Ball has qualities of both the ovo and the blob, as it has blob-like physics (even leading to the it hates water! revelation) and its roundness and fondness of rolling just like ovo
  • Ball becomes separated from itself. the white sections become the ovo, and the black sections the blob

the candle in the wind timeline / true end

  • now things get a little buckwild
  • the basic premise of this timeline is that nick and griffin stay in the waterproof pessima lx for , basically eternity, travelling through the time ring in an endless chase with the blob
  • the reason that they don’t break down like in the bad end is pretty much that being stuck in a perpetual expanse of time and space with a friend is infinitely better than being stuck there alone
  • this is where coolgames inc starts! essentially a way to pass time when youve quite literally got nothing but time. (and as nick said, there’s wifi in the void)
  • this is where the guest-o-matic in the cgi animations comes in! and, in addition, there is a “canon” connection with cb in the cook for cube cgi animation- perhaps the two timelines converging for just a second ? 
  • uncle buck from uncle buck
  • in the time ring we see countless galaxies pass by as they travel downwards- they travel through endless amounts of realities and planes as the blob pursues them
  • taking a moment here to explain something else integral to this- in car boys, nick has the power of creation, the ability to spawn and create objects in the game. griffin, conversely, has the power of manipulation, he’s much of the driving force behind important decisions and actions taken in the show. this becomes important
  • this is when touch the skyrim takes place- in a number of the universes they pass through down and down into the time ring, griffin takes advantage of these powers of manipulation to modify the word around them because like why not, its fun
  • what’s wrong with this dream, nick
  • as the boys + the blob pass through universe after universe in the time ring, the bob catalyzes the event in the original universe of Jon (taz) that originally creates the hunger- the blob merges with the inhabitants of that universe and the hunger is born 
    (note: this may be edited in the coming weeks as we learn more abt the hunger and its origin)
  • and the boys realize this- that the universes that theyre passing through are being consumed behind them- and they begin looking for a solution, which materializes in the form of the original taz universe, the homeworld of thb and ipre and all that. 
  • it’s also at this point that the light of creation really like, becomes the light of creation its- its nick? its nick. nick is the light of creation. this fact being proposed is what prompted me to make this theory in the first place
  • griffin shapes the world of taz and becomes the dm/narrator (note especially in recent episodes during the into to taz the narrator uses ‘we’ and ‘us’- as if he is part of this world and is involved in the story) and the two boys follow the ipre through the planes of existence in order to help them find a way to defeat the hunger/blob and save all of reality from the monster that they created
  • and i think its a canon thing that the light of creation is split into the relics? that happens. thats pretty sad i think
  • ..until we get to the present- the hunger descending upon what will likely be the multiverse’s final stand against the hunger in the main taz universe (the one with two moons and stuff). cant wait for the taz finale bros

other things & honorable mentions

  • thanks to everyone in the mcelstuck & car boys discord for help with this whole thing! 
  • @rikki-tikki-taako​‘s explanation of how the true timeline boys are saved from the bad timeline: “what i’m getting at is why didn’t true timeline nick and griffin get separated and warped
    the true saviors of true timeline nick and griffin
    emoji car and miku car
    embodiments of crucial aspects of nick and griffins beings, their integrity largely untampered with(i don’t believe either of them ever god trashed), and bow i think of it relatively unscathed compared to the horrors introduced to everything else because there were always more important matters to draw nick and griffin away, they came just when nick and griffin didn’t have time to make the same mistakes as all the other timelines
    so in the midst of god trashing, their pillars distorting, they combined with their respective aspects and regained their conceptual integrity, in a way like pause error respawning frequently merged objects in beamng, the pause indicated by their seeming lack of awareness of having to merge with them”
  • @cinnamon-marthmallows​ originally came up with “nick is the light of creation”, the fact that spawned this entire theory
  • @goodraandyy​‘s infograph on the split timelines and commentary on the ball/blob/hunger that you should check out & reblog here
    “ball turned into the blob which followed nick and griffin towards the taz universe - however, it is not john himself, it was simply drawn to his misery and suffering and mistook him for nick and griffin. john then harboured the power of the blob to create the hunger storm, which took over the universe“
  • @horticulturelesbian​ created the car boys discord thank u so much kar
  • @cheshiure​ compiled the cb unifying theory google doc
  • @coneboyofficial made this beautiful image
  • @magehand​ for this image: 
  • @babylonian @griffins-tumbo

tl;dr

  • the two endings of car boys are separate timelines
  • griffin and nick in the bad/pre-credits timeline became the bustos, Ball became the ovo & the blob
  • griffin and nick in the true/post-credits timeline continued travelling through the time ring, coming up with coolgames inc and touch the skyrim
  • the hunger is born from the blob interacting with jon’s whole deal
  • taz happens, griffin becomes the dm, nick becomes the light of creation, the boys follow the ipre gang through the universes to try and find a way to finally defeat it

thanks everybody

Percy wouldn’t recognize a joke if it danced naked in front of him wearing Dobby’s tea cozy.

They were on the ground, believe it or not, the show for four seasons has only been essentially almost a year. Not even a year of time has passed. So they’ve now been apart for way longer than they were ever together. And so relationships will change, alliances will change, will they be the same when they come back together in season five? It’s like in life when you go away for a long time and then you see somebody who you used to love or used to know and they’re so different, you know. That’ll be part of the fun in season five.

heart4hawkeye  asked:

Would you rant more on the differences between the "born sexy yesterday" trope and Wonder Woman? Because I definitely some similarities and some differences but couldn't put words to all of them, and was discussing it with a friend, and could find the words to describe the differences.

Originally posted by casnelson17

Potential Spoilers Ahead!

Okay, let’s break down piece by piece why Wonder Woman is not an example of the Born Sexy Yesterday trope. 

The Born Sexy Yesterday Trope is …

when a naive yet capable woman

I won’t argue that Diana isn’t naive.  She’s very naive when it comes to philosophical ideas like the nature of war and humanity.  That, however, is not the kind of naivety that makes this trope work.  

Diana is not naive about sex/sexuality. People (usually women) who fall into into the Born Sexy Yesterday trope rely on their love interest (usually a man) to teach about love and sexual attraction because they have never experienced it before.  Diana knows what sex and sexual pleasure are (and probably experienced them before Steve came into the picture), she doesn’t need Steve or anyone else to teach her.  When men Diana isn’t interested in express attraction to her, she’s able to recognize it and turns them down.  When men she is interested in do, she knowingly reciprocates and the relationship progresses on her terms.

Diana’s naivety isn’t used to make her more desirable.  Innocence, virginity, and naivety are part of the appeal of women who fall into the Born Sexy Yesterday trope.  While Diana’s naivety doesn’t detract from her appeal, it’s not the driving component of it.  Steve (and the audience) fall in love with Diana because she’s a beautiful, badass warrior with a big heart, not because she’s naive.

Culture Shock is not the same thing as naivety.  Diana not knowing what revolving doors and ice cream are doesn’t mean she’s naive.  It means she spent her entire life in a culture that doesn’t have those things.  Yes, there are things she doesn’t understand that Steve has to teach her, but there are also moments where Diana has to teach Steve about her culture.  Steve is equally as confused and fascinated by Themyscira as Diana is about Man’s World.  And you don’t see that turnaround very often, if ever, in the Born Sexy Yesterday trope.

is the over-sexualized love interest

There is a difference between being sexy and being sexualized.  Diana is extremely gorgeous and many of her outfits show some skin, but she’s never over-sexualized.  No one ever walks in on her while she changes, allowing the audience to see her in a state of undress, and there aren’t any gratuitous upskirt shots or close ups of her chest or rear.  Basically, unlike women who fall into the Born Sexy Yesterday trope, Diana exists to be more than just eye candy.

Also, there is a difference in having a love interest and being a love interest.  To have a love interest is to fall in love with someone over the course of a story while also doing other things.  To be a love interest is to serve as an object of desire and have little or no role outside of that.  Diana falling in love with Steve was just one part of her story.  An important part that had a big impact on the story, yes, but it wasn’t the only thing she did.  Much of her growth and development as a character happened outside of that.  Being a strong, female character, and being a woman in love with a man aren’t mutually exclusive.

And as for ‘Diana falls in love with the first man she meets so it’s the Born Sexy Yesterday trope’, that’s a misleading oversimplification (not to mention a little biphobic).  Diana doesn’t become immediately smitten with Steve the moment she lays eyes on him because she’s never seen a man before. Their relationship grows and develops over time until they both mutually fall in love with each other.  Diana also meets other men throughout the movie and develops relationships with them that aren’t romantic.  She doesn’t fall for every single man she meets.  She’s also canonically bisexual and she may have had relationships before Steve.  Meaning her relationship with Steve would be her first with a man, but not her first ever.  

 to an average, male protagonist.

First off Steve Trevor is above average, so jot that down.

He’s also not the protagonist.  There’s a reason this movie’s called Wonder Woman and not The Saga of Steve Trevor. This is Diana’s story. She is the heart and soul of the movie, and she doesn’t exist to play second fiddle to Steve.  The point of the Born Sexy Yesterday trope is to exist as an object of affection in another person’s story.  Maybe it can still work when the protagonist and the person the trope applies to are one in the same, but I can’t think of any examples. 


So yeah, there’s some elements of the Born Sexy Yesterday trope in the movie, but like how having eggs, flour, and butter doesn’t mean you have a cake, having those elements in the movie doesn’t mean you have the trope.

Madison: Thomas, we’ve known each other for a long time, you know that my last name is Madison.

Jefferson: *pulls out a small box and gets down on one knee* Ever thought about changing it?

Having confidence in my body, in my fat body has literally changed my life! I see all my flaws in this picture but I also don’t give a fuck about them because I look fucking great! Haha. Like I look amazing, that smile is fucking real! I was having the time of my life and loving myself. I felt comfortable and happy! You hear me? HAPPY!

Yes, I’m overweight, yes I’m fat. Yup. But it’s the body I currently have and what I look like not loving what I have at this moment? And if my body ever changes, I'ma love that one too! I’ll be damned if anyone puts me back into a place where I cried every time I looked in a mirror. Now you can’t tell me shit! Nobody. Not a soul.

I am who I am. I am at peace with who I am. And I’m loving every inch!!!

I say all of this to say, love yourself. Nobody can love you until you love yourself! Regardless of where you are. Love it, please. I’m literally begging you. You are enough, you can love yourself just as you are. You need to know that.
