people really take stuff like this for granted

Reasons Jacob Kowalski is Amazing

WARNING Contains Fantastic Beasts Spoilers!!!

Ok, so am I the only person who thinks Newt is utterly adorable, BUT actually likes Jacob Kowalski better in pretty much every way?

1) Jacob is the first really positive Muggle/No-Maj character we’ve had in the Potterverse, and I didn’t even realize that was missing, much less how desperately I needed it, until I saw Fantastic Beasts. I mean:

-Vernon and Petunia Dursley are portrayed as boring, stupid, unattractive, bigoted, and abusive.
-Dudley is better than his parents by the end of the series, but his scenes at the beginning (where he’s a nasty, ignorant bully) are pretty frequent, and once he starts growing as a person, he’s less integral to the plot, so we don’t see much of him acting decent.
-Piers (Dudley’s friend) is described as looking scrawny and rodent-like, and from what we see of his personality, he’s selfish, cruel, and cowardly.
-Tom Riddle Sr. abandoned his wife and unborn child when he discovered his wife was a witch.
-Hermione’s parents seem nice enough, but are barely featured at all.
-Filch, while not a Muggle, is a Squib, so he also doesn’t have magic. He is described as ugly, vindictive, and cruel.
-Mrs. Figg, also a Squib, is definitely a well-meaning person, but she’s portrayed as a little loopy, the stereotypical “crazy cat lady.” 

Meanwhile, Jacob is a central character who is sympathetic, kind, multi-faceted, funny, interesting, creative, has unique hopes and dreams, and his—not Newt’s—is the big romantic relationship in the film.

I was talking to someone about this—how the Potterverse was practically starved for positive Muggle characters before Fantastic Beasts—and they pointed out how most of the audience is (presumably) made up of Muggles, so having a non-magical character we can relate to is pretty important. I started thinking about that, and I realized it’s kinda true. A lot of Potterheads consider ourselves witches and wizards, and by default any non-fan—especially one who is dense or disrespectful—is a “Muggle.” I thought about how devastated I was when I didn’t get my Hogwarts letter at age 11, and now I wonder how much less upset I would have been if we’d had a Jacob Kowalski in the series from the get-go.

2) The way he reacts to magic. Ok, so he freaks out at first, but who wouldn’t? I love how quickly he accepts magic, and how he reacts to all magic he sees after that… like, he just sort of goes, “Oh, that’s a thing? Oh hey, that’s just great!” Like, magic obviously makes him really, really happy, but he doesn’t spend a lot of time goggling over stuff like Harry did at first. He just lets it all roll over him. He never takes it for granted, like the Weasleys or other people who grew up surrounded by it, but after the initial shock, he just accepts that all this wonderful stuff exists and immediately takes advantage of all the little practical ways it can improve his life (self-stirring cocoa, magic strudel, et cetera). He’s so open to trying everything new. No hesitation. Even with stuff that seems scary like some of Newt’s creatures, he’s just like, “Oh, this huge tentacled creature out of a Lovecraftian nightmare wants me to pet it, sure, I guess that’s cool.” I just adore how accepting and open he is about this whole world of crazy stuff he never knew existed.

3) He’s ridiculously handsome, honestly. As a bigger person myself, I love love love seeing physically attractive heavyset characters. Like, I wouldn’t kick Newt out of bed either (what sane person would?), but my Fantastic Beasts crush is definitely Kowalski. He’s dapper as fuck, with the hair and the mustache and the suit; his smile is like sunlight, and his eyes are so friggin’ gorgeous I can’t even start. He’s simultaneously adorable and sexy, and like, seeing a character like that makes me so much more confident about my own body. 

4) The relationship between Jacob and Queenie. Not only is it super adorable, but please note how unusual it is for mainstream films. In most big Hollywood movies, it would go like this: “Tina and Queenie both crush on Newt (who is the leading man, the “hero” type, and the more generically “attractive” male) and get into a sort of contest about who can impress him more. Jacob likes Queenie right away, but stays out of her way because he wants her to be happy and figures he doesn’t deserve her. Near the end, Queenie finally accepts that Tina and Newt belong together, and then realizes that Jacob has been there for her the whole time,” yada yada. But no. Queenie sees Jacob and there’s this instant spark. You can see her eyes light up a bit the minute they meet. There’s never a moment where she’s like, “You’re a really sweet guy, but…” It’s not necessarily “love at first sight,” but there’s definitely “strong mutual attraction and some serious sexual chemistry at first sight.”

5) The bromance with Newt is almost as adorable as the flirtation with Queenie. It’s so wonderful to see two male characters deeply care for one another, and even show unashamed physical affection, without them being portrayed as gay.* Mind you, there’s nothing wrong with gay characters (obviously) and generally I’m all for more queer representation in film, but it bothers me that apparently “straight men can’t have strong emotional bonds.” It has a lot to do with toxic masculinity: men can’t show affection towards one another unless they’re gay (i.e. unless they’re “girly”), because having emotions is a “female thing.”

*I know that Kowalski x Newt is a semi-popular ship, but I don’t think there’s a lot of canonical evidence for it, and given that we know Newt eventually marries Tina, and Jacob and Queenie have mad chemistry going on, it feels pretty OOC to me.

6) His dreams of opening a bakery. I can deeply relate to having a dream career that seems unachievable for financial reasons, but you still strive for it, because there’s nothing you love doing half as much, and it feels like you’re just meant to do it. And I love how this guy who seems really generically masculine at first glance has a passion for something as “feminine” as baking. Plus, though I’d never really considered baking as an art form before, it obviously is to him. He clearly doesn’t think of himself as a creative type—“I ain’t got the brains to make this up”—but he couldn’t be more wrong. What he does with all the fantastic creatures made of pastry at the end proves it. Yeah, he didn’t make up Nifflers and Bowtruckles and such, but having a vision of something in your head isn’t the same as bringing it to life, in 3D, in such a unique (and temporary!) medium. Newt may have shown him the creatures he modeled them off, but the whimsical charm each little pastry has is all Jacob’s own.

Also, I adore why he wants to be a baker—he wants to make people happy, in whatever small way he can, and that’s beautiful. I can’t imagine a more perfect reason to follow a dream than to bring charm and joy to a grey world.

7) Pretty much everything else about him, period, because this man is overall incredible and perfect.

Seriously.

“Are you telling me to run a red light?” He asked you as he shook his head laughing.

“I just don’t wanna be late again,” you whined and let out a long sigh as the traffic light just didn’t want to turn green again. It was a pain in the ass not having your own car in such a big city like Seoul. You were dependent on public transportation or your boyfriend to get you from A to B, and frankly whenever Jiyong was driving, you were always late. You didn’t know why, but there was not even one occasion you were on time with him as your driver. Your friends were always a bit annoyed at your tardiness.

He hadn’t even fully parked the car when you opened the passenger door and took a step outside.
  

“Thanks,” you quickly said and blew him a kiss, before hurrying into the restaurant.

I hope you enjoy this! This took me some hours and I tried my best with the quality and it’s really upsetting when people take stuff like this for granted, so please - if you like this, please reblog, and give me a comment and thumbs up on youtube. Thank you! :)

about lampblack ocs

(Guys, I’m considering closing submissions, things are starting to get a little carried away.

These past few days I’ve been hounded by multiple people, strangers, with extreme demands regarding Lampblack and their wants especially regarding ocs. Trying to change everything from established relationships to the fundamental truths the AU sits on.

I’m really thrilled you guys are inspired, and flattered you guys like Lampblack enough to want to contribute to it, but at least half the time I don’t think some people are really understanding that reblogging/publishing your ocs and stuff is a courtesy. I’m happy for you guys to use Lampblack as inspiration for your own characters and stories, and I’m tentatively okay with associating them with the AU in a semi-official way, but sometimes when you want to directly affect the main story, that’s going too far. That’s being invasive.

In theory the idea of other people contributing to Lampblack is a nice one, and being open has totally paid off, @feenybee and @bowlerhatwearer for example are folks who have really given their time and ideas to this AU in a way that has significantly improved it, and I’m incredibly thankful for that. Most of your guys ocs have been really awesome and fun, with great ideas behind them! I never have and never will lie to anyone about my reaction to your characters.

Whizbang, Adriana, Calavera, Croney, Anton & Gerald, Annie & Jackie, Alan, Vicente & Chivita (not sure if you’re cool with me making them known, lemme know if not) most recently, Laura & Blackie! These are ocs I have instantly fallen in love with. The detail and care put into their creation is obvious to me; and it’s hard to imagine a Lampblack without them! They have rich themes and bring new life to the AU in a really fantastic way.

But one of the best things about the ocs I’ve listed is that they can stand alone, as strong new features, additions to expand and improve this AU rather than people who want to inject themselves into the fundamental pieces of the AU and mix them around without respect; even when they’ve never spoken to me before. That’s not sharing ideas, that’s just being disrespectful, especially when that process entails hounding me, spamming, begging or otherwise.

And honestly it’s insulting to the really wonderful ocs and ideas that have become a part of this. I wish I didn’t want to close submissions, because I don’t want to deter people with really good, unique and interesting ideas. But it’s just getting exhausting explaining why I don’t owe anyone creative say in this thing.

This is first and foremost something I do with Cheri and Di. When people submit their ocs to me or want to talk about plot stuff it can be great, but I feel like people are starting to take for granted the fact that this is not something that is necessary. I open myself up to the ideas of others with tentative trust that they will respect me and the story I have going at the very least.

I guess I’ll keep submissions open for now - the problem is more in private chat messages that have been sent to me by multiple people rather than in the submission box. But I hope this is at least a reminder that opening this AU up to other people is not something I rely on, but something I offer for fun. Please don’t misuse that option. -HG)

Hey!

Today I’m talking in here as just me and not as an entire team. However, I ask you all to PLEASE READ THIS.

Truth is this situation is getting out of hand. I’m not talking about our scanlation team’s work but about the asks we’ve been getting lately.

I’ve already said it several times but I’ll say it again: I am an Uraboku fan since I started reading the manga, back in 2011. I never got involved with the Uraboku fandom until Zweilt Partners was created (in December 2015) because truth be told, Uraboku fans scared me. In 2015 I met some people (the guys in our team) who have been really amazing and loved Uraboku as well and I thought “I should give this fandom a chance” and the way of doing it was to accept it once Dani invited me to join this team.

However, while we’ve talked and seen several amazing fans (thank everybody for your support to us so far!), we’ve also gotten some asks that were completely unnecessary, not to say rude.

In roughly the past month we’ve gotten at least (I’m saying at least because there are three people connected to this blog and I only know the asks I have seen and I’m not that active on Tumblr anymore) FOUR asks just telling us to not forget about our future chapters. Four asks saying the same thing in one month.

And I’m not including here asks like this one that Dani replied. In the same amount of time (roughly one month), the number of asks we’ve gotten saying “I want to read chapter 60″ has certainly exceeded number 6.

Do you know what I do about these asks? Dani replies once in a while but I just delete them. I’m tired. I’m really, really tired.

I know I’m going to say here what everybody says but it’s true: we are a scanlation team but we are also a group of four people. I know this may be shocking for some of you to read but, just like any of you, we have our own lives, our own families, our own school duties, our own work duties, our own health and so on and all of that stuff takes priority to a scanlation.

One thing I’ve learnt from doing scanlation several teams is that releases shouldn’t ever be taken for granted, but rather all stars are aligned when one chapter is released in a scanlation: it means everybody involved had everything they needed to release one chapter.

Taking long to release NEVER means that it was forgotten, it means that stars haven’t aligned yet.

Now I’m going to talk about my private life: I’m translating an anime I love in real life for a dub in my country and I’m being paid for it. However, even though this sounds really cool at first, truth be told, this work isn’t any easy: I work way more hours than anyone can imagine so I can try to meet the company goals (and guess what? the company’s goals are impossible to meet). I work so many hours, I haven’t had time to watch new anime ever since I started working in this and you can ask the other guys in this team, I am that person who is always watching the new-coming anime, this is definitely a sign I haven’t got time for anything, being it raw providing (that sure takes time, believe me) or proofreading. And, because I started working in this on the beginning of this year (so, before Uraboku’s final chapters came out), I haven’t given the team the raws of the last three chapters yet.

And this is just my personal case. Just like me, the other members are also having tight personal lives. This happens to everybody and we are people just like you.

Now, stop for a second and think how much would you feel if you were in a scanlation team, got a job you wanted and realized it was different than what you expected (I can tell you that the time I spend working in my actual work is actually the least of my problems but let’s pretend it’s the worse) and then you’d open tumblr after several months of bad sleep during to your work and you see those kind of asks over and over again.

Because for example that’s what has been happening to me.

So, after some delibration I’ve decided: one more ask trying to rush our releases, and I’m leaving Zweilt Partners. I’ve lost a lot of motivation by reading those asks and, in this moment, my motivation is nearly hitting zero. And if you think what the admin of Uraboku-Fan-Club said in this reblog they made of our ask is lie, I can confirm you it actually is not.

Please remember that I am the raw provider. No raw, no release.

So if you are the anons who are sending us those asks

SHUT THE FUCK UP

Or our releases will really be influenced by those asks, but not in the way you want: we may end up delaying even more our releases than rushing them up.

We are not a publisher and we are not being paid for the scanlation we’re doing. So don’t treat us as if we owed you anything because truth is: We actually don’t owe you anything.

And for last but not least, I’m going to tell you one thing I kept a secret from everybody, even from my teammates on Zweilt Partners, only one other person knew about this - I was going to work all by myself in the scanlation of chapters 48-52/54 (depending on whether we’ll work on chapters 53/54 on Zweilt Partners) of Uraboku, because I do my own scanlations as well. I already had all the materials and everything and I’d work in this once this anime I’m translating on my real job would end. Needless to say, that is out of question right now.

If you are the person(s) who sent those anon asks: yes, I’ve given up doing the scanlation of those chapters thanks to your asks. I hope you’re happy now.

How bout something YOU would like to see? Since you're bein all fairy godmother tonight and granting artistic wishes, maybe someone could grant yours ;33 *wink wonk*

*gurgles* I just really like drawing and making stuff for people! qCq I’m no fairy godmother. Just a person eager to take requests and please.

But to be honest, I’d be content with someone simply drawing me a stick figure. c: I love art of all kinds, no matter what it is! Because so long as you enjoy what you’re drawing and are content with it, then I’ll probably scream and sob over it because I knew you had fun drawing it!

…Though I am always happy to see Ravus and Ardyn. c: Anything with those two or the Grease Monkey Goddess is a treat and a real hoot~

Idk if Tumblr ate up my asks about genosai concepts but I was curious of what your fave kind of scenarios were? I live for genos giving Sai a billion kisses everywhere and telling him that he is his Everything. 💝💙😭😭 Gosh these two have ruined my life.

Waaah, oh my! Ok, let’s see… I live for those casual domestic gestures of affection…the hair ruffling, hugs, hand-holding, and the like. Gestures of mutual trust and intimacy. Those little blessings that most take for granted, are pretty huge and meaningful for two lonely, emotionally stunted, and touch starved people. :’3 By the ease and proximity they share day to day, they gradually help heal each other (that slow buuuurn) and the humanity they both felt they’d lost (but which had been hiding there suppressed all along). ;.; What I really love about them in particular is stuff unique to their pairing: interactions they do together that no one else can do, which I list HERE.

As for scenarios, I feel like if Genos were to ever realize the scope of his feelings for Saitama (and not be so hopelessly oblivious to it ahaha), he’d try to remain considerate to Saitama first, and wouldn’t wish to bother him about it. Basically, Genos would internalize it and pine and suffer on his own, at least until Saitama finally notices something off and confronts him about it. :’D (Saitama IS aware and notices things about how Genos might feel, as shown in the latest webcomic chapters.) Once that finally happens though, and Saitama confesses his feelings back (heck, he’s been pining too), then BOOM, all Genos’ previous reservations holding him back are OFF. 8D (welp, now Saitama’s doomed~) If Genos were ever insecure about his non-human body or about not being ‘good/strong enough’ for Saitama, ahhhhhh then I REALLY like Saitama reassuring him that he’s fine just the way he is. That praise and body worship. All the YESS. Like say, marveling at Genos’ intricate machinery in his hands, core, etc and simply cherishing it all because it’s uniquely HIM, that always gets me. ;.; Likewise, once the barriers are off, I feel like Genos wouldn’t hesitate to lavish Saitama with attentive praise and affections too, ohohoho. (fluster and overwhelm the egg, yesss) Ahaha, I completely understand, anon! 8D I have been completely enraptured by them too!      

anonymous asked:

Pre relationship supercat : Cat's mother is trying to set her up and Kara doesn't like it.

Kara had broken another stapler. That made three in one day. She looked down at the crumpled plastic in her hands, and felt like an idiot. She had no right to get so angry. But knowing that didn’t make the feeling go away. Cat called her in again, and she rushed to hand her an aspirin. Cat swallowed it down with the water Kara hurriedly provided, and winced.

“Make sure you have an appointment with my therapist locked-in for the morning. It better not be after eight.”

“Yes, Miss Grant.”

“And I am leaving no later than five today,” she sighed, looking irritated. “If you must reach me, I’ll be at Julianna’s. And no, not my idea. So don’t get any crazy notions into your head of booking me reservations there in the future.”

Kara smiled before she could stop herself, trying to imagine Cat at that simple downtown Italian restaurant. But Cat shot her a withering glare.

“I want a car booked to pick me up at five-forty-five,” she said. “I will not tolerate any incompetence in that task.”

“Of course…” Kara took a breath, but stopped herself from continuing. Cat seemed to pick up on it easily.

“Oh what, Kiera?”

“It’s just…your mother…”


“Is not a topic a wish to discuss with you.”

“I know…but.”

“Why are you still standing there?”

Kara jumped to attention and darted back to her desk. She hated how much Cat was able to get to her. Was frustrated at how flustered she still got, how easily that woman could get under her skin. Months ago, when she finally met Cat’s mother and was subjected to the cruel barrage of comments, she started to wonder if what she had with Cat was somehow a warped mother-daughter relationship. Thought maybe that was the only way Cat could relate to a subordinate who was female. Or perhaps all women. But then Cat had changed clothes during a work-day, returned to the office dressed for some benefit. Her back exposed. Kara had trailed her eyes all the way down, hungry all of a sudden. Thinking of the skin with a lick of her lips, idly imagining running her hands over it. Until she realised she had been caught staring, and she gawped up at Cat in horror, stumbling backwards and muttering something incoherent about forgetting to send an email.

Cat didn’t date, not seriously. She had men on her arm at events, but rolled her eyes at the idea of them when barking out instructions to Kara. It didn’t make it easier. And Kara knew she had no right. Not then, and not tonight. She shouldn’t be pushing down rising fury that Cat would willingly submit to a blind date set up by her awful mother.

Kara supposed it would have to be enough that Cat was only going for forty five minutes Half an hour, really, considering how long it would take her driver to deliver her to the restaurant. Fifteen if there was bad traffic. But she was still going.

“Oh get that look off your face, Kiera.”

Kara blinked up. Cat was standing over her desk, arms crossed.

“Do I need to call you again, or are you going to daydream away the afternoon? Chop-chop.”

Kara scrambled to follow her back into the office. Cat made a beeline for her drinks, and turned around to face her. Drinking leisurely. It was only a few minutes to five.

“Miss Grant…”

“Go on,” Cat sighed, looking put-upon. “Say it.”

Kara stared at her.

“You want me to…”

“Say whatever it is that will stop you looking like a wounded puppy,” Cat gestured with her drink, walking to her couch and perching on it daintily. She kicked off her heels, and Kara found her staring getting worse as she ran her eyes up the length of Cat’s leg.

“Kara.”

Kara’s eyes widened, she shook her head at the sound of her name. Pronounced correctly. She might just start to hyperventilate.

“Sit,’ Cat said. “Do I look like I bite?’

“Miss Grant, I—”

“Sit.”

Kara did as she was told. But she felt awkward. She rested her hands on her legs, trying not to do something, say something that would surely get her fired.

“I’m not completely blind, you know,” Cat mused. “I can recognize a crush when I see one.”

“A….crush?”

She looked at Cat in horror, and Cat smirked, like she was enjoying the attention.

“There’s no need to feel embarrassed. You’re only human, after all.”

“I…yes…” Kara stuttered, dreading where this was going. It was like rolling downhill with no breaks.

“But I hope that now I have addressed it, you can quietly get over…whatever it is…” she smiled. “I can’t have you mooning over me just because I happen to be indulging my mother’s ridiculous fantasy that she knows me. That it is anything but inappropriate for her to have any say in who I date.”

Kara knew she should be reeling at the fact that Cat was talking, actually giving a detailed explanation of her mother, of that man she was about to go meet. But she was stuck on her word choice, and found the anger boiling over before she could stop it.

“I am not mooning…” she glared at Cat. “You don’t get to sit there, telling me what it is I feel, and then mock me for it.”

“I’m not mocking you, darling,” Cat said. “It’s sweet, really. Do I sound anything but flattered?”

Kara was gripping her hands into fists.

“You….you…” she glared, and stood, starting to pace. “It isn’t sweet.”

Cat smiled, seemingly amused by this outburst, she sat forward, ice tinkling in her glass.

“Oh?” she eyed Kara up and down then, like she was taking in every detail of her body. Kara felt like she was on fire. And then Cat licked her lips, and Kara couldn’t look away. She wondered if Cat was even aware, if it was a purely unconscious action. “Not sweet. What is it then? Are you about to surprise me?”

Kara had stopped thinking clearly. That was the only explanation. She moved quickly, pulling Cat up by her free hand. Cat let out a gasp, her eyes widening. She dropped her drink, but even that didn’t seem to register for the both of them. Kara was kissing her, their bodies flush. Cat yanked Kara back with her, until they were both on the couch. Kara pressed against her.

“Oh,” Cat gasped.

And that sound seemed to break the spell. Kara stumbled away, her eyes wide.

“I’m so sorry….Miss Grant, I…”

They were both gasping, eyes locked. If the phone hadn’t started persistently trilling, they might have stayed there forever. Kara vaguely got the sense that it had been ringing awhile, but for some reason all her senses had been blunted, narrowed in focus until that moment. It all came back to her and she rushed to answer it. The driver. He had been waiting for some time. It was five-twenty. Wait, how had that happened? She couldn’t believe she’d forgotten. She thanked him and hung up.

“Miss Grant,” she said. “You’re going to be late for your dinner. The driver is just downstairs, so if you…”

“Kara.”

“I can change the pick-up time to after six….”

Kara,” Cat snapped.

Kara looked at her.

“I’m sorry.”

“Oh, stop apologizing. I liked it better when you were mad.”

“Your date.”

“Jesus,” Cat snapped. “Forget the date.”

Kara narrowed her eyes.

“What happend to it is just a crush, Oh, I’m flattered…”

“If you’re going to throw every cruel and pointless thing I’ve said in my face we’ll be here all night.”

Kara smiled, but she crossed her arms, feeling too vulnerable with Cat looking at her like that.

“I’m still sorry, someone could have seen—”

“Oh, please,” Cat smirked. “It’s after five, there’s hardly anybody left. And nobody really looks in here. I think they’re afraid they’ll meet my eyes and turn to stone.”

“I look,” Kara said.

“Yes,” Cat smiled. “You do.”

This was getting too bloody long, so I just had to end it. This, people, is why I take so long to respond to prompts. I think I missed the ‘ficlet’ memo. also I hate writing stuff that comes off abrupt because it’s rushed. 

is it selfish to say when a friend of mine says they don’t matter i get super angry? like i actually do get angry especially when I’ve told them it matters for me before? it kinda translates to me like ‘idc if it matters for YOU because i take you for granted i wish it mattered for more people than just YOU’ and it kinda hurts

then again at the same time im fully aware of my dependency issues and that it takes 1 word to get me raging angry so *shrug* im probably taking these things the wrong way lol

I was snooping around some cgl places, and on here, and I saw blogs (I will not name them out of privacy) that disrespected their cg when they felt down. It’s really sad..I know when my cg is down, I tag him in all of this really cute stuff so he can get this smile on his face, and he knows how much I care about him. I don’t get why some people think that they’re the most important thing 24/7. My daddy is important too. He is a person, not just some robot. He takes care of me, and I think I take it for granted sometimes, but I don’t disrespect him when he’s feeling down. I take care of him like any boyfriend would. So please, take care of your cg’s if they’re feeling down..

((People mentioned @kadinnova ))

Imagine Steve Rogers, tired and angry at the media and society for twisting him to fit their close-mindedness.

Imagine him getting home, Angry and wanting to take back his name and his image but above all of that tired. Tired of having to tell people they’re wrong when they make assumptions, tired of denying to make a statement on an issue because he won’t say what they want him too, tired of saying ‘no, you’ve got this all wrong.

Imagine him still looking up his name on the internet because he can’t believe that people think he would think the way they think he would.

Imagine him finding one result among a million titled “Why Everything you think about Captain America is Wrong” and spending a good minute staring at it to make sure he’s reading it right before he clicks on it.

Imagine him smiling, reading through it, trying to think of how he could possibly repay someone for coming to his defense so thoroughly, and what made them write it in the first place.

Imagine him crying at the end because this was from someone just like him.

Imagine Steve Rogers using the knowledge of people willing to defend him to tackle taking back his name, joining movements he really agrees with, speaking out on behalf of the little people, making the world acknowledge problems that have been around longer than he has, and denouncing anyone who tries to argue that he’s wrong because he’s Captain America, and Captain America wouldn’t exist if he had never been Steven Grant Rogers, just a kid from Brooklyn.

People really take Assassins Creed 1 for granted I love how it was very dark and gritty and all the different stuff that happened during. Like your friend loosing an arm. The guy who tortured the prisoners/slaves. The crazy people. The people at the party that were all poisoned by the glutton. The people who were hung infront of you. The 2 times the masyaf was raided by the templars. I REALY hope the new one has a lot of crazy things happening during the story as well. I’m sure french revolution is the perfect time for crazy tho

For those who do not know what the Selective Service System is in the U.S., it’s a “polite” name for the draft.  A system in which young men can be forcibly entered into military service against their will.  I understand there are other countries that do force military service on to their citizens, this isn’t about them.  In fact this isn’t even about me, I’m well past the age where this program effects me, regardless of that I actually volunteered for and served in the Navy.

Now men in the U.S. between the ages of 18-26 are required to sign up for this.  All of them, with very few notable exceptions(most of which being people not seeking citizenship).  This includes anyone immigrating to the U.S.. A male trying to come to America has to sign his body over to the U.S. Government, or he will be denied citizenship.

What do men get in return? A lot really. Because politicians over the years have tied dozens of programs to registering. Eligibility for Federal Jobs. This includes the post office, if you want a position within the USPS you have to be able to prove you registered.  You gain access to federal grants, loans, and scholarships.  Also good stuff, but again, you only get access to these programs, if you register.  In most states a man can’t have his driver’s license if he has failed to register. This includes territories like Puerto Rico and District of Columbia.

Now I’m not going to talk about the legal penalties of not registering, because really a very miniscule amount of people have even been prosecuted for it, 20ish.  But it’s voluntary right? So the guys can roll the dice and take their chances, they’ll almost certainly not ever get caught, right? Well yeah.. Except in places where the choice is taken out of the citizens hands. Like New York which will automatically register all males 18-25 when they apply for a learner’s permit, Driver’s License, on a simple State ID.

But what if they make it all the way to 26 and never register? Do they get access to all those things that were denied? Nope, not a scrap.  Can they go back and register? No, you are not allowed to register after the age of 26.  You will never have access to federal or state jobs, grants, loans, scholarships.  It many states you’ll never even be able to get a Driver’s License.

What does any of this have to do with female privilege?  Well you know all the programs, rights, grants, scholarships that men get access to after signing their bodies away?

Women get it all by default.  Female immigrants? No requirement to sign up to get citizenship.  All those scholarships? Loans? Federal Jobs?  They have access to all of it.

Maybe I’ve framed it wrong actually.  Maybe this isn’t technically female privilege.  Maybe it’s just women’s rights.  They have a right to all these things by default.

  Because rights in the U.S. are something you get just for being human.  Privileges are something you have to earn.  Men have to earn these things. That makes it male privilege.

So, I’ve liked kpop for a while now, and I love being a part of fandoms and connecting with other fans, but sometimes… People go a bit too far…

You know when one member decides to do a live stream? And they’re all excited and really happy to be talking with/to the fans, to give something back? And then suddenly, they look really upset and hurt when they see comments like: “where are the other members”, “where’s _____”, “can you bring out _____”, etc? You know how they try their best to not look hurt? Do you want to try to imagine what that feels like? 

Think about this: Imagine you’ve worked really hard, and there’s a group of people you care about, friends, family, s/o’s, and then when you go to talk to them, to spend time with them, they immediately ask for someone else. Can you imagine, can you even fathom how that feels? What would you do? What exactly would you do? Would you keep your composure in check and just laugh it off, or would you blow up? I mean, personally, I would get pissed… Especially if it kept happening over and over, and people kept asking for someone else, instead of me. 

It actually makes me livid that people do this, like… Why? It’s so frustrating to watch someone that WE CARE ABOUT hurt like that. And most of them try to brush it off, because they have a reputation and because they don’t want to hurt their fans– but I’ve seen certain idols snap. Mark from GOT7, Jin from BTS, those are just two examples. And Mark APOLOGIZED for yelling. He apologized to us. (THIS IS THE VIDEO) DO YOU EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW W R O N G THAT IS?! WHY IS HE APOLOGIZING?! THE BOY HAD EVERY RIGHT TO YELL (He said, “The other member’s aren’t here!” And sounded rather annoyed.) AND GET ANGRY! And then, there’s the people who don’t yell, who don’t get mad, but they just walk away. The most prominent situation that I remember was when J-Hope was doing that livestream and he left, leaving his phone with Jimin because fans kept asking for other members… He decided to do the livestream for us, and people didn’t appreciate him for that… 

It breaks my heart watching this kind of stuff happen. And I hope they know that they are loved with all of our hearts. I really hope they know that they’re appreciated. Because, they are some of the kindest, sweetest people that we obviously take for granted. 

Please, I don’t want to sound angry/mean/scornful/condescending but please, I am begging you: DO NOT ASK FOR ANOTHER MEMBER/MEMBERS WHEN SOMEONE IS CLEARLY DOING SOMETHING AND TRYING TO ENTERTAIN, US FANS. REMEMBER: THEY DON’T HAVE TO DO THAT FOR US, BUT THEY ARE. PLEASE DON’T MAKE THEM FEEL LIKE THEY’RE NOT IMPORTANT… PLEASE.

Since Skyrim has paid mods, how will you feel if Fallout 3/New Vegas/4 has paid mods?

Not too happy, the shit that has come from it doesn’t make me want that. I feel like a donation button should be implemented? Like free mods but like I can give you a dollar or something because I appreciate what your doing, I already don’t have a lot of money, I honestly couldn’t pay for a lot of mods. The way I go about things is i download mods that I THINK i would like in game, I have a lot of mods downloaded I don’t use, also I’m constantly changing enbs and stuff, I wouldn’t be able to afford this shit haha.

also Idk man, hearing that people are taking their mods down because other people are stealing mods and claiming them as their own, that ain’t cool, at all.
