I hate that there’s a limit to the Gay™ I can reasonably expect from modern media. Even though there are millions of books, movies, and tv shows with purely straight characters I could never hope for a show with more than a few or, god forbid, only queer characters. It’s like there’s an unspoken rule that I can’t hope for more than one, maybe two non-straight characters or relationships because any more would be ‘unrealistic’ or 'pandering’. Fucking pander to me man, to all the other queer people invested in the worlds you create, because it’s not fair that because there’s a lesbian couple there’s an invisible cap and now I’ll never see a bi main character, or that having a trans side character is “enough activism” and that trans character will never have another friend on the show like them. Why do you have to maroon all your gays in this heterosexual world? Why can’t you let us find each other??

The only woman who completes Oliver’s soul is Felicity Smoak. She is his always.

Oliver Queen is Felicity’s heart, he is her perfect match and she loves him in a million different ways. 

If there’s no one for either of them but each other, then there’s no one else for me either.

Olicity is my OTP. OTP means ONE True Ship. I’m loyal to my OTP. Reblog if you’re loyal too.

fangirl challenge: [6/10] female characters   Penelope Álvarez

There are persecuted people all around the world who would love the opportunity to come here, but they can’t. Because the rules are different for different people. So some of them break the law and they do what they have to do to fight for better lives for themselves and their families.
And you know what? I get it.

Good Bye

Requested by captainelsaeverdeen: Can you please do Newt Scamander imagine, where the reader is muggle woman and he falls in love with her, and he wants to take her memory about him away by Obliviate?

Pairing: Newt Scamander x reader
Warnings: angst
Fandom: Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts

*Newt’s pov*
To why Newt didn’t use the Obliviate spell on you as soon as you saw him use magic was still a mystery even to himself. You were a muggle and those were the rules however he didn’t regret it because of the time he got to spend with you after the fact. He hadn’t intended on falling in love with you but he did.

Newt showed you all his beasts. The look you got in your eyes was amazing. His creatures loved you and you seemed to love them right back. You were so gentle and caring and he was sure he’d never find someone as good as you but there was one problem. He had to leave. He had to go back to Europe and you lived in New York.

Newt took a breath and looked back at you miserably. You were smiling yet there were tears in your eyes. He didn’t want to see you like this. He knew he shouldn’t have let you come wish him good bye.

“So this is it” you said wiping your eyes “you’re going to get on that boat and leave”.

“Yes” Newt replied looking down at the ground.

“I want to come with you…” you started.

“But you can’t” Newt finished “this is where your family is. This is your home”.

“That’s the thing” you said taking his hand in yours “I feel like you’re my family now too”.

He chuckled “I’ll miss your dearly [Y/N]. I won’t forget you”.

“Me neither” you whispered. All of a sudden your lips met his. Those tears finally escaped your eyes and rolled down your cheeks. Newt knew him leaving would bring you so much pain. He knew what he had to do. Slowly Newt pulled out his wand and whispered “obliviate”.

With that he pulled away from you. A look of confusion suddenly crossed your face. You looked around trying to identify where you were. That’s when your eyes met his as if it were the first time.

“Sir do I know you?” You asked.

Newt sadly replied “no” then turned and boarded the boat. He wouldn’t allow you to feel the misery he was feeling right now. He wanted you to live a normal muggle life. It was for the best but he’d always remember you no matter what.

books read in 2016: the foxhole court by nora skavic

This isn’t about the Ravens. This is about you. This is about everything it took you to get to this point, everything it cost you, and everyone who laughed when you dared to dream of something big and bright. You’re here tonight because you refused to give up and refused to give in. You’re here where they all said you’d never be, and no one can say you haven’t earned the right to play this game.“All eyes are on you. It’s time to show them what you’re made of. There’s no room for doubt, no room for second guesses, no room for error. This is your night. This is your game. This is your moment. Seize it with everything you’ve got. Pull out all the stops and lay it all on the line. Fight because you don’t know how to die quietly. Win because you don’t know how to lose. This king’s ruled long enough—it’s time to tear his castle down.

To the creators and to everyone in the Yuri!!! on ice fandom

I just want to say Thank You

It has been a complete privilege to be part of this wonderful and amazing fandom. Yuri on ice has taught me a lot of things and I am grateful.

All these weeks of waiting for that one episode to finally come. All those headcanons that we try and make so that we’d have some clue as to what the next episode might be like, but still get completely floored when we finally watch it. Over-analyzing every little detail there is. Those moments where we cried about our beloved characters and wishing we’d be there to comfort them and tell them that it’ll all be okay. I love you guys so much, even though we’ve never interacted before. We share the same love for this show. This little show that has broke all the rules there is. Breaking the norms and constructs of what is usually done.

Our show might be over but the fandom is not. We’re still here and we’re always going to be here. If there really is a second season then you bet your ass that we’re still gonna be here, cheering on our beloved characters as they go through another round of facing their fears and overcoming them. I am not leaving this fandom and this show because for the little amount of time that it ran, it has touched my heart and made me fall in love. I hope you did too.

So, dasvidaniya and see you next level!!

The calls, emails, and protests are working!

The jackass that proposed that “sell off 3.3 million acres of public land” bill is withdrawing it!

  • Also, at UC Berkley protesters forced them to cancel a previously scheduled speech by that Milo nazi
  • The Dems are finally starting to show some backbone. They successfully delayed 3 confirmations by a day by boycotting the hearing entirely. The Republicans had to change the parliamentary rules so they could approve the nominees without them being present, but it’s a sign that Dems just might finally be listening to their constituents
  • As of this moment, all Dems are voting against Betsy Devos AND two GOP Senators. Only one more GOP Senate vote is needed, and Betsy DeVos will not be confirmed!
  • Jeff Sessions confirmation is delayed again–because GOP thinks they might need him on the Senate to vote for DeVos
  • Trump walked back a planned executive order on LGBTQ rights, announcing that Obama’s protections for federal LGBTQ employees would stand (for now) after massive pushback
  • Trump also walked back a portion of his Muslim ban. Green card holders are now exempt. And we all already know about the states, cities, corporations, and individuals now suing him over it.
  • Harley Davidson cancelled a scheduled visit from him because they didn’t want the bad press.
  • The House Intelligence Committee has now launched its own investigation into possible collusion between Trump and Russia
  • Representatives are actually talking about the volume of calls, emails, and protests at their offices. We are actually getting through to them!
  • Trump continues to be embroiled in scandal. It’s coming out that the recent raid in Yemen that got an 8 year old girl and Navy SEAL killed was based on faulty intelligence that Obama originally vetoed. Trump went with it (and there’s evidence that Bannon and his son-in-law were there for the decision) and people are dead. In fact, it’s coming out that even more women and children were killed during the raid than originally reported.
  • And all across the country, people are in the streets every single day. I know I am. We need to keep the pressure on our Representatives. Your calls, voice mails, and letters are making a difference. Your LOUD and VISIBLE dissent are making a difference.

But don’t forget the most important part! Register to vote NOW before the GOP starts rolling out new laws to make it more onerus. And don’t stop with you. Make sure all your friends and family are registered. These bureaucratic things take time so DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE ELECTION TO REGISTER TO VOTE. And when November 2018 comes around DO NOT VOTE ALONE. Take at least 5 people to the polls with you. Order your mail-in ballots early, and make a night of filling them out together. Don’t just pick your friends/family who already vote. Talk to the ones who never want to talk about politics. We’ve got to get as many people as possible!

Grindelwald’s Haircut.

While we think of the undercut as a modern style, it was an incredibly popular look in the ‘20s, when “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find them” is set.

The connection between Nazi fascism and this particular type of undercut is pretty obvious. Just look at this pictures.

So of course Grindelwald and his followers are wearing undercuts; after all, he committed unspeakable acts of terrorism to create a new world order where wizards would rule over Muggles rather than hide from them — and where he would be the benevolent dictator at the very top.

It shows that the “Fantastic Beasts” costume designers really know their stuff — and that maybe it’s best to look up the history of a hairstyle before you say “where is Grindelwald’s curly and long blonde hair’’ one more time.

The Moon in the Signs

The Sign the Moon falls under shows our habits, reactions, and instincts. It also shows how we express, or deal with, our emotions at their most basic state. Our Lunar Sign shows our innermost needs. Our Moon sign is most obvious in our homes or in private, as this is when tend to feel comfortable enough to react instinctively. The Moon also shows how we “mother” or “baby” ourselves, and our loved ones.

No but seriously Eragon’s got some great quotes like

“Keep in mind that many people have died for their beliefs; it’s actually quite common. The real courage is in living and suffering for what you believe.”

“First, let no one rule your mind or body. Take special care that your thoughts remain unfettered… . Give men your ear, but not your heart. Show respect for those in power, but don’t follow them blindly. Judge with logic and reason, but comment not. Consider none your superior whatever their rank or station in life. Treat all fairly, or they will seek revenge. Be careful with your money. Hold fast to your beliefs and others will listen.”

“I’ll fight when needed, revel when there’s an occasion, mourn when there is grief and die if my time comes…But I will not let anyone use me against my will.”

“I believe, Eragon, that you are full of love and that you are looking for one who will reciprocate your affection. No shame exists in that.”

“From now on you’re going to have to think. There’s a reason why we’re born with brains in our heads, not rocks.”

“Life is pain…anyone who tells you otherwise is selling something.”

“Are you willing to die for what you believe in? The real courage is in living and suffering for what you believe.”

Lead Me Home [Part Four]

summary: As a young girl, you sat next to Bucky Barnes every single day on the bus, claiming your rightful spot as his best friend. But as the two of you grow older, Bucky and you seem to grow closer together in a way that neither of you expected.

word count: 1,137 words

warning(s): lots & lots of cursing, angst, a breakup

pairing: bucky x reader

note:  I’m sorry it took so long to get up. All of you who are supporting this series make me so happy and I’m thankful for you. This chapter was really hard for me to write, but all cutesy, good, things must go through rough patches to get even cutesier. [TAGS ARE OPEN]

PART ONE, PART TWO, PART THREE

In sophomore year, you were crowned queen of your school by the popular crew. You had seen shows like Gossip Girl where girls like Blair Waldorf ruled the school and had their “minions” who would follow them to the ends of the earth, and your school was exactly the same. Natasha Romanoff had thought you were the coolest, most pretty, underclassmen and you deserved the title of “Queen.” She had convinced the other girls to find you a posse and they were going to initiate you the day of their senior prom. You were finally getting what you had always wanted, you were finally going to be a part of Bucky’s world.

But, Bucky couldn’t have been more displeased when he found out what his friends were planning. He tried to convince them that they should choose someone else and that you weren’t the right type. All of his friends laughed it off, not thinking anything of his protests. You were Steve Rogers’ girlfriend, you were one of the most feared girls at your high school. You were one of the homecoming princesses - the youngest princess in the court. You had become one of the most popular girls in school just by changing how you dressed and who you associated yourself with. You were the girl who everyone else wanted to become but couldn’t.

“How could you do this to me?”

I will show you my devine rule: Nobunaga (SLBP)

Genre : 3rd person, partly historical, angst
Characters : Oda Nobunaga 
No romance

New eras don’t come about because of swords, they’re created by the people who wield them. Once, I fell in love with a man that most people knew him as a ruthless leader or Lord of Hell. Whoever you ask , they knew him for the bloodsheds he caused and all the warriors he killed who were in his way. But I know what others don’t. I know that the true meaning of the ‘samurai’ is one who serves and adheres to the power of love.  That’s the man I loved. Oda Nobunaga.

anonymous asked:

One of my co-workers researches gun violence. She told me she went to the range once, to try to understand guns. After all, she's studying gun violence. But she went by herself and she was afraid she was going to shoot herself (even though she was following the rules of firearm safety), and wound up more afraid of guns. I offered to take her myself and actually show her how guns work, to demystify them for her. Not sure if she'll take me up on it but I hope she does.

I hope she does. This reminds me of the anti-gun journalist who tried carrying but didn’t know what she was doing or how to properly work a gun and ended writing an, “OMG guns are terrifying” piece.

First, let no one rule your mind or body. Take special care that your thoughts remain unfettered… Give men your ear, but not your heart. Show respect for those in power, but don’t follow them blindly. Judge with logic and reason, but comment not. Consider none your superior whatever their rank or station in life. Treat all fairly, or they will seek revenge. Be careful with your money. Hold fast to your beliefs and others will listen.
