okay done for tonight

I’m? So angry on @steveaoki and his teams’ account. Like. They have been working their butts off for this single. Steve has been mentioning it as much as he can, and his team has been using it as much as possible. So the fact that The Late Late Show is trying to use Louis’ name to promote the single (meanwhile his fans have done more than his team has for this single) is so gross. 

I want a hashtag with Louis and Steve TOGETHER, if not one for Steve alone if you’re going to make the host make one without Steve. The false idea that Louis’ fanbase is just here to blindly promote whatever he does needs to be squashed. We have continued to support this song and promotion cycle because Steve and his team have made us feel like we are being recognized and loved for the effort we put forward. 

The fact that The Late Late Show has been naive enough to think that it has been a blind following is insulting to us as fans and Steve and his team as people. I’m so angry right now.


turn off the lights // panic! at the disco


They’re back…

Imagine Lucas teaching El all sorts of things about space and galaxies and stars. She’s absolutely fascinated and adores learning new things about her world, and it’s an amazing bonding opportunity for the two of them. They pour over science textbooks together after school. Lucas brings his telescope out for all the boys and El to go stargazing on summer evenings. El loves the glow-in-the-dark stars that Lucas has on his bedroom ceiling because it feels like he has his own constellations right within his grasp, so Lucas buys her a few packs of them for her birthday, glow-in-the-dark stars and planets, and all the boys come over to help her design her ceiling with them. On rainy days, when Mike visits El to comfort her through her nervousness about thunderstorms, they lay on the floor of her bedroom and she tells him all the things about space that she’s learned from Lucas and from the books Mike brings her and they pick out made-up constellations (like Eggo waffles) 

I know I’ve kinda lowkey been trying to support everyone who wants to do KS cosplay and my main point as been that it’s pretty doubtful antis would literally try to do anything in public because imo they’re probably not that assertive when not behind a computer, but the more I see them hating on cosplayers, the more stressed out and anxious I get about my own KS cosplay plans. Part of it is that the con I’m planning to cosplay Bum at is a “for queers by queers” thing and I’m really anxious that people are going to like… accuse me of being cis/straight and more than that accuse me of being a cis woman which I am not but like I’m sure antis don’t give a fuck about triggering my dysphoria because they’ll make snap judgements about whoever……

So, I was in my sociology class. One thing lead to another, and I began wondering why the MHA world is so similar to ours. Do you think it's because society was well on its way to this point in time, if not already here, when quirks showed up, so instead a new culture formed and attached itself, instead of pervading and wholly altering the world as a whole?

i’m not really sure what you’re asking here, but

people with quirks just began to outnumber the people without quirks. it became the norm to be different. we know that people tried to suppress those with quirks, but it’s hard to suppress people when 1. they have superpowers and can theoretically do ANYTHING depending on the person, and 2. they surpass you in sheer numbers alone

since Toshinori is the 8th user of OFA and Izuku is the 9th, i can only assume that it’s been about 200 years since quirks first began showing up. (this is based on how AFO was part of the first gen of quirk users and his brother created OFA)

i’m sure society halted in advancement for a while when all this chaos was happening and so certain advancements weren’t made until much later. but when superpowered people begin to outnumber you and your cause against them, it’s kind of hard to continue fighting it. especially since certain quirks can be used to help advance society and realize breakthroughs in science and technology and who knows what else

not to mention, Quirks became much more useful for society in the form of heroes

the world may have paused for a bit to get used to the idea of quirks and superpowers but eventually it started back up once they realized that quriks can be helpful instead of scary and harmful, and the world slowly began to move again

of course the MHA world is slightly more advanced than ours, which i’m sure is b/c of quirks. but yeah

i hope that answers your question!!!

In the cosmic world of the Old Norse system of belief, animals were an integral part because they possessed knowledge of nature and conveyed it to humans and gods. Humans transgressing their bodily boundaries by becoming animals were therefore nothing unnatural, just slightly unusual. Fluidity, hybridity and metamorphosis were considered as simple facts of nature. In this process, body parts were integrated in animal wholes to indicate ambiguity and shape shifting, illustrating the Old Norse saying eigi einhamr, that is a person ‘not of one shape’.

However, metamorphosis and hybridity are different in ‘nature’. Metamorphosis is a process, while hybridity is not (Bynum 2001: 28 ff.). A hybrid is an entity of two or more parts and it is visible; we actually see what a hybrid is. Like the creatures in the animal styles, a hybrid is a double/triple, etc., being. Here, eagle, wild boar, snake, beast, etc. and humans constitute hybrid forms that encapsulate the power and ability of all species. The same might be seen in the hyphenated personal names with two or three names in combination: animals as well as battle/war/fight-synonyms. On the contrary, metamorphosis goes from one entity to another and is essentially narrative. The metamorphosis is a process going on from beginning to end, and is comparable to the little death of the shaman/bear/sei∂-man/women in the stage of soul journey/winter hibernation. It is a constant series of changes and replacements. Metamorphosis breaks down categories by breaching them: man becoming wolf or bear, male becoming female, youth becoming a tree, etc. In opposition to this, hybridity is about contradictions. In a hybrid form, contradictory categories are forced to co-exist, such as when man, wolf, snake, eagle and wild boar co-exist in the animal iconography. I

@amelancholycharm replied to your post “okay I’m done with tonight’s quotespam  there’s like a whole chapter…”

If what you quoted on Borel is any indication, the guy seems to have some good stuff to say - maybe I will check out the Nerval chapter when I get a chance as well.

I hope you will! I think you’d understand the Nerval chapter better than me– I get sort of an overall gist from it, but it’s must more Academia, and I am, like, only 60 percent fluent in Actual Academic Argot.:P   But it’s interesting still (and not nearly as rage inducing as a whole lot of writing on Nerval is >_<)!
