probably not the best time to post

Terra’s going abroad!

Hi all! Just a heads-up that my activity may be a bit sporadic in the coming weeks. I’m going to be in Italy for most of the month of June, taking a class. I’ll probably be on the blog occasionally, but I expect my schedule will be fairly busy. Also, I might accidentally end up posting things at weird times due to the different time-zone.

If anyone has climate/geology questions for me, I’ll do my best to answer asks before I leave on June 7th. Any submitted after that will be harder for me to get to until I return on July 10th.

Hey Jam! Maybe you could try deleting and reinstalling the app, or else use tumblr in a browser like Safari? Tumblr mobile's screwy though, it'll probably fix itself either way given time. Best of luck!

Tried installing and reinstalling, but it didn’t work ;-; Thank you for the suggestion though! I’m sure it probably works on my computer and mobile is just being a butt, but until I can get to a computer, no posting of art ;;-;;

!!SEMI-HIATUS!!

It’s been long-coming.  After starting my 2nd job and not being able to put out replies in a timely manner, I’ve decided it’s best to go under a semi-hiatus status.  At least until my bus driving job ends.  The last day for public school here is June 9th, and because both jobs are seasonal (my other job, I make and put up a bunch of signs for summer festivals :3c ), they overlap.

SO BASICALLY, what this means is that I’ll probably be IMMENSELY SLOW aaaaaaaaand VERY SELECTIVE about the RPs I’m in until then.  Feel free to let me know if you want to drop threads.  We can always start a new one when I’m out the hiatus. c:

Also, I apologize if I have not responded to our threads in 2+ weeks.  The past two weekends have been hectic. ;w; Which is also the time I get a bulk of my RPs done. (Hurray, traditional weddings which take DAYS to do, woo. TwT) I definitely am not ignoring you!!

The difference between yuri on ice and samurai jack is the victor and yuri romance was hinted and developed since episode one, and those seven eps took over the course of months. There were literally no hints about jack and ashi it was all crammed into one ep and a few days ago ashi wanted to kill him

Uh, okay, I gotta tell you something: there were hints of Jack/Ashi happening.

1) Buck/doe allusion from Episode 3. They’re part of nature, Jack and Ashi love nature, it’s pretty obvious.

2) The little puffball from Jack’s hallucination says, “What did you expect, a hug and a kiss?” from Episode 4.

3) Ashi saving Jack from committing suicide from Episode 6. Bear in mind that Jack completely failed his purpose at this point (getting back to the past) and thought he’d be far better off out of the Aku-infested world. If that’s not love, then I don’t know what is.

4) Jack complimenting on Ashi’s new outfit from Episode 6 (again). Not to mention they were both messy and nearly naked at this point.

5) Ashi literally killing an entire army and her own abusive mother in order to protect Jack from Episode 7.

And once upon a time, I once made a post about the Jashi speculation. I can only sum up as this: this is probably THE best love story Genndy Tartakovsky has ever written. In entirety. Their relationship tops Mavis/Johnny, Monkey/Honeydew, hell I’m even tempted to say it tops Octus/Kimmy due to how they hooked up after one episode while Jack/Ashi happened after eight.

Hey anon, I know Jashi isn’t your cup of tea, but let two troubled individuals find solace in each other once in a while.

Remember that time that Niall and I think Harry and Liam were interviewed in New Zealand, and the interviewer asked them what they would do if they were suddenly Mayor of Aukland, like clearly expecting immature king for a day type answers, and instead Niall was immediately like, “well, how’s your public transportation? How much are the teachers getting paid?” and so on and so forth just like, completely subverting her expectations and being funny and smart at the same time?  It makes me happy every time i think about it.  Niall is the best. 

The first time Hunk saw Lance pre-morning routine, probably with a toothbrush in his mouth, maybe with a face mask on, he laughed a little and said “dude, you look really cute” and thats the moment lance knew he was in love with his best friend

It was never a good idea and you should’ve stopped it from the first time, or the first week, the first month, before it went too far. But you didn’t. You were sucked into his world and him into yours. Although your lives were entangled from the very beginning, it was never meant to go this far.

Hoseok pushed himself into you again, feeling the tightness wrapping snugly around him as he released a low groan of pleasure. “Fuck, you feel so good, always so good.” He buried his face in your neck as you twisted your fingers into the soft strands of his chocolate locks. He growled and thrusted into you over and over, bringing you to the edge. “Babe, shit. Goddamn, you’re so tight. Pussy always so good for me. Only for me.” He jerked his hips particularly hard, hitting that delicious spot inside of you. “Tell me.”

“Only for you,” you echoed in a gasp, head thrown back as your body arched off the bed. His mouth captured one of your peaks. The heat a contrast against the cool of his room. His abs, defined and beautiful, were layered by a sheen layer of sweat as he pounded into you. Moans tumbled from both your lips, swallowed by his mouth covering yours.

“So goddamn beautiful,” he muttered, nipping his way down your jaw and your neck. He knew you hated it when he marked you, hated it because everyone could see. What he didn’t know was that you mostly hated it because it made things more real than it actually was. A whine left your lips as he continued to print shades of blue onto the canvas of your skin. “I’m so close, babe, come with me.”

And you would. You always did, after all. Your fingers found purchase on his broad shoulders as he moved faster, pushing into you deeper and harder. The tension coiled in your stomach as the electricity coursed through your veins and straight to the space between your thighs, space filled by, and only by, Hoseok. The orgasm wracked shudders in your body as you let out a cry, the same time Hoseok groaned into your neck. Heavy breaths heaved your chest as Hoseok pulled out with a small grunt and slumped onto the space next to you.

The two of you laid in silence for a few minutes. The deafening emptiness drawing your fears forward. It always happened. No matter how many times you’ve been in bed with him, you’ve regretted every single one. The two of you were stuck in this limbo with too many questions and not a single answer.

Answers you sought and answers he couldn’t give.

Harry Styles’ solo album might be the most anticipated debut this side of the millennium. Following years as the bullseye in the global behemoth that was One Direction, the singer is taking center stage with a self-titled effort that’s a classic cocktail of psychedelia, Britpop, and balladry. If it was a color, it would be the baby blue of Jimi Hendrix’s Fender Stratocaster or the soft pink of Mick Jagger’s suit when he performed on “Top Of The Pops” in 1971. It’s rock and it’s roll, but it’s also soft and sensitive. Produced by Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Fun.) it’s a record that could force the position of mainstream radio by ushering in a reprise of proper music — ensembles, verse-chorus-verse, rich instrumentation, or, basically, Adele’s bag of tricks.

Despite the red herring of lead single ‘Sign Of The Times’ (it clocks in at just under six minutes in length), the album is a short shrift 40 minutes and contains ten songs that are largely about women. Unlike Robbie Williams and Justin Timberlake before him, there’s a deepened millennial sensibility to being a leading man. Harry is a sensitive soul; A post-Drake phenomenon; A serious pop performer with enviable vocal chops and a gifted ability to convey a song’s emotional heft. He oozes class, ease and a sense of import without thrusting forth from the hips, or wreaking of a self-satisfied sense of boyband emancipation. Both respectful of his past and nervous for his future, “Harry Styles,” the album, looks both ways. - Variety

Discworld for Beginners

So, I just typed this out in a group chat because I got carried away and I thought I would make it into a post since some people might be interested in Terry Pratchett’s amazing comedy fantasy series, Discworld. So here are some great starting points.

1) Guards! Guards!
Cop noir about a drunk city watch captain and the beginning of his arc towards becoming an amazing city watchman. The series as a whole focuses a lot on racial and class prejudices as well as, of course, crime.

2) Mort
About a young boy becoming apprentice to Death. Death is one of the most beloved characters in all of Discwold and his novels focus a lot on humanity, what it means to be human and the nature of the universe.

3) Wyrd Sisters
My personal favourite series, but this isn’t the first book featuring The Witches, but a better starting point than the first one (Equal Rights, if you really want to start there, but it’s rough). This novel is largely a play on Macbeth, but the series expands to play on fairy tails, fey and other storytelling tropes and what it means to be a witch who cares for a community.

4) Wee Free Men
A soft reboot of The Witches focusing on a young woman learning to become a witch and is possibly one of the best YA leads of all time. The series really is about growing up and responsibility. (There is a metric tonne of stuff I can say and unpack about Tiffany and her books, but this is a short post). Probably the best starting book as it stands alone very well, is largely disconnected from Discworld as a whole to begin with and is Pratchett at his best.

5) Going Postal
A beautiful disaster of a human being who is a conman becomes a the head of the postal service and a captain of industry. Hijinks ensue and the novel becomes a defamation of capitalism as a whole.

6) Monstrous Regiment
A fantastic stand alone about a girl joining an all male army to find her brother who went off to war and didn’t come back. Talks a lot about gender roles and has a few trans characters. 


Disclaimer!
Terry Pratchett tackles a lot of social, moral and occasionally religious issues in his Discworld series and as much as I love his writing, there is a significant lack of racial and sexual diversity in his writing. 
Also, please do not read the first 3 books of the series to start your Discworld experience, doing that is like eating raw flour and eggs to see if you like cake.

i once read an article about ovi that referred to him as ‘an unabashed mama’s boy’ and honestly considering the narrative that the nhl media has always had around ovi, it was probably far from meaning to be complementary, but i think it pretty much sums up one of the things i love best about him. because ovi really, really loves his mom. he had a post for her on international woman’s day this year, and listed her as his childhood hero in one of the caps feature bits. and the number he wears? his mom’s old basketball number. bragged to lebron james about the first time he met him, for like one full minute? his mom. first agent? tatiana ovechkina.

and i mean…. he’s got reason to, because she is a certified badass -  captained a two time olympic gold medal team,  was probably the best soviet player of her generation, won a bunch of championships as coach and player, and went through the loss of a child and a childhood injury - a car accident that she got up and walked him from -  that left her in such bad condition doctors wanted to amputate her leg. and she just… had the determination she build up her strength again on her own initiative, piling bricks to her legs and doing lifts and just …. basically decided she was going to be iconic and badass right then and there and honestly ovi, she’s my hero too.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: jughead knew, he knew that FP wouldn't get better after a month, or even a year, and still he told his dad that he believed him and that he'd go live with him. he knew that it wasn't the best situation to put himself in and that even being homeless is better than this, but he agreed to go anyway because it would break his father's heart if he said no. this boy cares so much. he knows he's going to be let down but this is his Dad dammit and he can't help it but to care this much and bless those 30 seconds of clarity FP had to let jughead go with the andrews, it was probably the best thing he's done in a long time for a son that he honestly doesn't deserve, a son that is too good and too pure and what are you talking about i'm not crying, you're crying!
in a world where you have your true love tattooed on one wrist and your sworn enemy on the other, and you dont know which is which...

CINDER
-k so her wrists are obviously kai and levana
-and when she was little she thought Kai was some terrible person she would loathe bc true love could mean romantic love or platonic love or familial love and Aunt Levana would never hurt her!!! Right???
-So she would follow around Levana, trying to spend as much time with her as possible, bc she knew her and Aunt Levana would have the most incredible aunt-niece relationship ever.
-hahaha but post-almost being burned alive, Peony is obsessed with Cinder’s wrists bc Kai!!! Like the prince!!!!!!
-meanwhile Pearl and Adri scornfully remind her that Kai is a common name, its probably some peasant
-and Cinder tries her best to stay impartial. Her gloves not only hide her cyborg hand but her tattoos as well, and she actually forgets about them for a long period of time….
-and then she meets the prince. And oh shit. Ohhhh shitttt
-cinder isnt the best at romantic interaction, and she cant tell if that was flirting?? He probably hates her, shes a cyborg…
-and the mission to figure out whats on his wrists begins
-but why is he always wearing long sleeves??
-and the night of the ball, she finally sees one of his wrists! and it says levana. Oh dear
-so all of a sudden shes in jail and kai and levana are getting married and her place is quite clear…but why is levana the other name on her wrist?
-so what keeps cinder going, all throughout scarlet and cress, is that they have to be soulmates. Theres no other way.

KAI
-hes got Cinder/Levana
-and when hes a little kid and hasnt met either, he always kinda hopes cinder is the true love because the name just sounds so much…warmer
-then the whole arranged marriage starts happening and kai’s like…idk bout this…but the wrists dont lie…
-but then he meets cinder and its just!!! marry me!!!
-and then he realizes it…one of these girls is his sworn enemy…
-shit shit shit shit shit shit shit
-but things seem to solve themselves when Cinder is arrested and becomes known as a terrorist
-except levanas definitely not his soulmate? Bc most soulmates dont want to kill you…
-and so its an internal battle because besides the wrists he knows both have glamours powerful enough to control his feelings
-some nights he lays in his bed and just kinda cries bc he doesnt know whats real anymore
-but when they kidnap kai from the wedding and theres finally some time to talk to cinder, she shows him her wrists
-and theyre like “either its u and me or we re fighting to the death over levanas affection”
-so that becomes an inside joke of theirs, and kais always like “hahaha im winning” leading up to his marriage w levana
-but they act like in love idiots throughout winter bc they now theyre soulmates

Thats kaider for yall, imma do the other ships on other posts to avoid longness

2 Statements On Each Sign

Aries: Drags everyone they love. Emotional but doesn’t always express it constructively (tbh never does).

Taurus: Secretly the momfriend, but doesn’t want anyone to know that. Might use you with ulterior motives, but is grateful for you nonetheless.

Gemini: Well-known, but whether they are adored or hated depends on the person. Secretly emo trash, mostly for bands.

anonymous asked:

ur post about fic & racism in the supergirl fandom really got me thinking (especially about my own biases so thank you) but also like, how there’s this incredibly pervasive but subtle new form of racism I haven’t seen b4 in other fandoms? Like on one hand u have this loud condemnation of how racist monel is & how he was a slave owner blabh blah but no corresponding attention given to the existing Black characters. 1/4

I get wlw not wanting to write m/f fic but a lot of the fandom doesn’t reblog (or make) any of the gifsets, they don’t meta for him they don’t call for more screen time for Mehcad. Same for M’gann. SO many posts talking about how awful monel is compare him to Lena and strangely don’t mention the Black female character who also came from an oppressive society to become a hero? And there are like, idk, 4 people? Who write or post wlw fic with M’gann in it? 2/4

Same with Maggie. A huge segment of fandom decided Floriana is white (even tho hollywood clearly won’t cast her in roles for white women) so they use that as an excuse to exclusively stan the very light skinned white wlw. And the way it carries over to the characters, like, okay Flo is white? but Maggie is absolutely treated like a woc in how parts of fandom aggressively ignore her & find ways to demonize her character while overtly supporting lighter skinned characters ¾

And that same part of the fandom doesn’t ever seem to create content for Lucy or Vasquez either. IDK this isn’t something u can probably explore with stats but ur post really got me thinking and it just feels really gross now bc I see all these posts condemning racism but there’s still this extreme perpetuation of privileging white characters at the same time? & I haven’t seen this particular trend in fandom b4 4/4

Oh, anon, this made my day. I have a bunch of notes waiting in a doc to address the whole Mon-El thing with regard to the racist undertones and the rhetoric used by the show to frame his storyline, and I will do my best to write it before the season comes back again, because I genuinely think they tried to aim high and just … missed completely. (But I make no promises because my thesis defense is on Tuesday.)

To your first point re: fandom attitudes – I was surprised in the early half of S2 when so many people came out of the woodwork making posts in the main tag like “wait, why did they get rid of Kara/James??” because, oh right, nobody acted like they cared for almost twelve straight months. If y’all were so okay with this ship, where were you to acknowledge its social significance when it was canon? Where are you now? Why hasn’t there been an outpouring of tweets week after week at the execs and the writers for sidelining an interracial couple in favor of what we’re getting, especially since the storyline literally handwaved away human trafficking and slavery as minor plot points?

Not only that, when there’s unrealized potential for a non-canon ship there is typically an outpouring of fic in response, and while there’s been a statistically significant amount of new Karolsen fic in S2 because it’s pretty easy to top zero percent, the writing there is not keeping pace with any of the other dude-involved pairings. 

And you’re right, anon: it is not possible to prove anything with stats. HOWEVER, thanks to the addition of these new characters for S2, I *am* at the point now where it’s possible to see correlation between character race and fan engagement with different pairing choices. And the bias is there, whether it’s in the het pairings, the femslash, or even the m/m pairings. The whole reason I started tracking fic outputs in the first place was that any attempt to have this conversation last year devolved into yelling and finger-pointing because “you have no proof!” that racial bias is a thing. Except, yanno, all the POC who live with it daily saying that it’s a thing. Well, congratulations y’all: your choices leave digital footprints behind that are pretty easy to follow and chart for everyone to see.

This isn’t actually a new problem, by the way – racism and preferencing of white pairing happens a lot, in almost every fandom. The only difference maybe is that I’ve experimented with quantifying it, which is not something that people usually do when they study fandoms or fan behavior.

It pains me to no end that M’gann has been so overlooked, because her story has just as many dark character beats to it as Lena’s, if not more, plus the added bonus of her sharing a sense of “otherness” with Kara in a way that few other people can. And there is no way the disinterest in that pairing isn’t about race, because there are a whole bunch of ships from S1 between white women who’d never even met each other in canon that have more romantic fics than M’gann/anyone.

And the nonsense about Floriana, which I’ll remind everyone again was started by a white girl, had a demonstrable chilling effect on interest in Sanvers as a pairing. Like. I can actually show that on paper. And you’re absolutely right with what you said above, which bears repeating: Maggie is absolutely treated like a woc in how parts of fandom aggressively ignore her & find ways to demonize her character.

There’s also a treatment of Floriana herself that reminds me uncomfortably of how people went out of their way to demonize Naya Rivera’s personal life whenever she reminded the world she was black instead of just “very tan.” And a lot of the rhetoric people are using to talk about Floriana’s racial heritage is almost verbatim the same as what you’ll find on white supremacist discussion boards about Italian people. I’d love to think this is an accident, but I’ve made some people pretty angry for pointing this out in the past, so I suspect it’s at least partially deliberate.

Lucy was another case that drove me insane, for two reasons:

  1. The vast majority of femslash fans flat-out ignored her as a romantic choice even though there were a whole lot of good reasons to ship her with either Kara or Alex, and a whole lot less negative reasons not to. (And it’s not like Supercat was already dominating the scene before Lucy’s character was introduced. That ship only became popular after the movie Carol came out during the winter hiatus of S1.)
  2. People had the same fight last year about whether or not Lucy counted as a WOC and ultimately insisted that the answer was no. But then people kept on ignoring her anyway like somehow dubiously legal boss/employee relationships, potential treason, and incest were more logical bases for attraction.

Also, to the people who have been like “oh yay we could’ve had Dichen as Maggie, a real WOC” like somehow this would have made the fandom love her more – you’re full of shit. If you mean that, why has there been so little fic about Dichen as Roulette? Like, last year there were a whole bunch of shipfics featuring Livewire. There was Kara/Siobhan. And yet … no dark scenarios of Supergirl/Roulette? No Alex ones? There were even a bucketload of those for each Danvers sister + Max Lord, and this fandom isn’t even that into dudes. You’re telling me no one is interested in this kind of hero/villain dynamic with the Asian chick and somehow that’s not also about race?

tl;dr I suspect that a decent chunk of this problem is the result of subconscious bias, but some of it’s not. And what’s really sad about it is that, for all the talk on Tumblr about representation being important, we’re really doing no better as media producers than Hollywood when it comes to race. If anything, we might actually be doing worse.

these are like probably 2 years old by now i think
