political thumbs up

soooooo rosenstein appoints mueller special prosecutor, dude who served as fbi director under bush and obama and is longtime institutional fbi loyalist/advocate + comey ally––lol rosenstein gives white house only a half hour heads up on appointment––AND wapo reports mccarthy (gop house leader) said last summer to a buncha gop bozos that trump got paid off by putin, whereupon paul ryan cut him off and swore everyone present to secrecy bc they’re a “family,” ryan initially denies wapo account then wapo pulls out TAPE of entire convo and ryan claims haha #jokes. i n c r e d i b l e, here we go

i keep forgetting that bipolar disorder qualifies as an actual disability and getting surprised when i see it on official forms because im so used to thinking of my own mental illness as a character failing

like i cant study full time and i have to spend fifty dollars a month on medications to stay functional enough to do my part time retail job without a nervous breakdown and even then making sure my brain is in order is a constant self-evaluation process and i get drained and i have to have regular doctors appointments etc

and like?? it just never really computed for me before exactly how much this affects my life?? like i thought id be appropriating disability or something by saying im disabled but no as far as legal qualifications go in america at least bipolar disorder is On The List

in other news though i do HAVE a part time job i enjoy and im driving again and its my five year anniversary with my fiance in a week and we are getting married in the summer and my life is about as good as it can get, if youd told me a year ago id be here mentally speaking and life milestone wise id call bullshit bc i was so miserable

Love Is A Human Right - written by Conscious_ramblings

The one where Louis has spent years getting over his ex, Harry Styles, and was almost successful. That is until Harry is elected as an MP, and Louis is given the task of getting him to support an Act of Parliament.

Through tears and arguments and a heavy dose of LGBTQ+ politics, their lives finally line up. Will Louis be able to forgive? Will they still want the same thing? It’s difficult to let go of five years of hurt, but even more difficult to be close to the love of your life and let them walk away again.

Review - 10 out of 10 Larry Thumbs!!

There are so many elements of this fic that are amazing - truly, wonderfully amazing.

I was swept up in the plot from about the third or fourth paragraph - dying to know what happened and how it all went down. The writing is so on point that the feeling of “oh my god I have to keep reading, I HAVE TO KEEP READING” never went away once. This fic is addictive and rewards you spectacularly.

The story is teased beautifully in the summary above all those Larry Thumbs. It’s a lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers fic, and that’s putting it lightly. The tension and chemistry between Louis and Harry is palpable. You can feel it immediately, and it never lets up. Even when they aren’t in a scene together, you can still feel how the they’re affecting each other - Brilliant!!!

I’m a history/politics/social movement junkie, so this fic fit like a glove for me, but even if you don’t like any of those, this fic is still going to grab you. It will still be amazing. You’re still going to love it!!! At the heart of it is two men who are absolutely perfect for each other - it just takes them a while to get everything right. 


Bernie Sanders reeled in the endorsement of a prominent cabinet official from the Clinton years on Friday.
Robert Reich, who served as Bill Clinton’s secretary of labor, announced on Twitter that he was throwing his support behind the Vermont independent senator rather than Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. 


Thumbs up!!

So, re the hugging: I am the kind of person who tends to bump into people randomly, as opposed to at an organized meet or signing. So, if I ever go to a con, and happen to see you walking by, what's your preferred method for "Hey, I like your work/you're a cool guy." Because words would probably fail me. It's happened more than once, I get out "Hi," and then my brain and my mouth go on "trial separation." So, thumbs up? Polite nod? Mimed stroke of a fictitious beard?

Mimed stroke of fictitious beard, always. That would be AMAZING.
