I’ve talked about the Purity Disk Horse until I’m blue in the face, even knowing it’s futile, and sometimes I question why I care so much or why I put so much effort in or why it bothers me so immensely when someone is Wrong On The Internet, and I think it boils down to this.


Fiction does not exist to sanitize the human condition into digestible chunks of happiness and warm fuzzy feelings. Fiction exists to expose the human condition right down to its marrow, to peel back all the layers of niceity and civilization that we have built for ourselves so we can live comfortably in human company and get to the animal root of our nature. Fiction exists to be a release valve for the necessary repression of our darker instincts, our intrusive thoughts, the fantasies that horrify us or titillate us or sometimes do both at the same time. Fiction exists as the safe environment where the deep, festering parts of our soul are laid bare in a way that is sometimes terrifyingly intimate. Fiction exists to tell stories that are gruesome, disturbing, visceral – the stories that make you question your complacency in a society where these things really happen, to make you engage with your own human condition in a state of self-reflection and examination.


When our children encounter something new and scary that they don’t understand, when they find out about the dark horrors of the world and that the layer of candyfloss we coat things in when they’re younger is fabricated out of a desire not to see them hurt, we have a responsibility to make them engage with it. Avoiding the darkness will only make them fearful and ignorant. You must look the beast in the eye. You must say, “I know you, you live in my heart, I have seen you, and I cannot let you out in my reality, so I will let you out in my fantasy instead.”


The beast lives within all of us. Fiction is the way we tame it, and by taming it we learn how to fight the beasts that are let out into reality, the big ones that seem too massive to take on alone. Without the beast, without seeing it and knowing it and walking into its lair to learn what makes it tick, we never grow beyond the point in our lives when we truly believe that ignoring something horrible will make it go away.


Sometimes fiction can also be the balm that eases our spirit instead of the draught we take to purge the poison. Sometimes fiction can exist to give us hope, or to show us a world that really is coated with candyfloss, to give us a small amount of joy and an uplifting narrative in a place where it seems like the beast is all that rules. Those stories are also important, and are no less necessary to our human condition than the stories where we let the beast out to play. They cannot, however, be the only stories that exist. As long as the beast lives within us, we must let it feed, or it will feed on us instead.

mumbutter  asked:

When can we begin to donate to PR and which channels arw trustworthy?

DO NOT DONATE TO THE RED CROSS a lot of American outlets are linking them DO NOT DO IT. Also be wary of donating to any gofundsme etc anyone can set these up and you don’t know how authentic they are. 

Here are alternatives:

Unidos Por Puerto RIco

This site is being ran by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló. And at this time I think would be one of the best ones to donate to. 

Caritas

This organization has been doing good work since 1969. 

Hispanic Federation

Another great organization very transparent and easy with their donation process.

imagine jack and bitty come out by simply not hiding their relationship!!

  • the Samwell team being super protective of their bros
  • the Providence team being super cool with it (and in some cases being lowkey passive agressively protective)
  • but also the tabloids being so straight

“nhl superstar Jack Zimmermann was seen yesterday leaving his penthouse apartment with best friend and roommate Eric “Bitty” Bittle. They were later seen at lunch with a young woman with whom jack seemed very close to. A simple lunch with an old friend or the best friend meeting the girlfriend lunch? Who knows, but one thing’s for sure, Zimmermann seems happy and ready to give his all for the season’s first game this Saturday. #LetsGoFalcs”

  • also, the Falcs winning the Stanley Cup, Bitty runs over to Jack on the ice and they stand there hugging, exchanging i love yous and “im so proud of you, honey!”
  • jack getting married to bitty
  • the media still hasnt caught on that they’re together
  • it’s only been 4 years you know
  • it’s not as if they’re hiding it
  • the media’s just dense af

“Jack Zimmermann spotted with best friend and roommate Eric Bittle and their 3 children. It appears that the pair has decided to add another kid to their little family as they were headed back to their car after meeting with a foster child. These two are absolute #bromance goals and we wish them luck!”

  • the Samwell team and the Falcs mocking news media outlets!!!

“Zimmermann and husband spotted with their children, bro goals!!”

“HAH! Good one, Ransom!!”

“Thanks, Tater!”

it’s 1:34 in the morning someone stop me

- My basic rules to shopping! -

The color swatches are for the princesses, however if people like this Ill make more Disney Bounding color pallets that you guys can print them out or save to your phone for when you go shopping! Drop me a message and let me know what you think!

I loved this Chibi bit so much

honestly who the heck do those nctzens think they are?? nct are people. humans. with emotions and feelings. they aren’t circus animals that are available at your disposal whenever you want them. for anyone who doesn’t know what a panic attack and/or sensory overload feels like, it’s crap. and triggering mark to have a panic attack for something that could have been easily avoided on the fan’s side is horrible. is being noticed by them really more important than their health? NO. AND YOU COULD CLEARLY SEE IN THE VIDEO THAT MARK WAS HAVING AN ATTACK SO UNLESS YOUVE NEVER HAD/SEEN ONE YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE UNDERSTOOD BUT WHEN SOMEONE TELLS YOU TO BACK UP. YOU BACK UP.

MARK IS LITERALLY THE SWEETEST BOY IN THE WORLD AND I KNOW HE ISNT GOING TO BLAME ANYONE FOR THIS SO IM GONNA DO IT FOR HIM. LEAVE THEM ALONE. SUPPORT THEIR MUSIC. BUY THEIR MERCH. VOTE ON MUSIC SHOWS. BUT DO NOT CROWD, PUSH, HARM, SHOUT AT, OR DO ANYTHING THAT CAN AND WILL POTENTIALLY HURT THEM. IT BREAKS TRUST BETWEEN NCT AND NCTZENS AND IT PREVENTS EVENTS AND STUFF FROM HAPPENING IN THE FUTURE, WHICH STINKS FOR FANS WHO HAVE NEVER GOTTEN THE CHANCE TO SEE THEM.

Hey remember when it was revealed that you and Zen actually had plans to get married but his parents still haven’t learned to accept him?

Well do you remember how apologetic he was about not being able to marry you because he just wants you to be happy, but his need for his parents’ approval even after all these years is stopping him?

He’s so sure about how much he loves you but somehow even with you in his life he still can’t get a completely happy ending because of his parents.

He probably lays awake in the dead of the night sometimes, looks at you sleeping next to him, and wonders if he should just let you go because you deserve better, because you deserve to be able to get married, you deserve for your future children to have caring and supportive grandparents… and he can’t give you any of that.

Maybe your happiness lies somewhere else and he’s just holding you back.

Maybe he deserves to be alone.
