reality and fiction

The novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin became popular in the northern states and created huge amounts of sympathy for the Abolition movement with it’s portrayal of an enslaved man. Abraham Lincoln allegedly said that the book was one of the reasons white people in the north began calling for a Civil War.

The film A Birth of a Nation was directly responsible for the Ku Klux Klan’s reestablishment as well as a reported spike in racially motivated crimes, attacks, and even riots.

A study has shown that watching shows that feature homosexuals and homosexual relationships increases viewers’ sympathy for lgtb causes, even in people who claim to be uncomfortable about homosexuality before they begin watching.

A significant portion of people involved in the world’s space programs claim that Star Trek and similar shows and movies inspired them as children and began their interest in space and science.

Currently there are more students than ever involved in forensic studies programs and there is evidence that shows like CSI, Law and Order, and other investigative crime shows is a factor in the increase in interest in the field.

Although still being researched, many experts claim that a “CSI Effect” is responsible for jurors demanding more forensic evidence in criminal trials there by raising the standard of proof for prosecutors, even if the standard is unrealistic and inaccurate.

The American Psychological Association has confirmed a link between violent video games and aggressive behavior especially in children.

Don’t tell me that fiction doesn’t impact reality.

“Hello! This is Killing Stalking Cookie! I heard that updates beyond chapter 19 were fairly disappointing. I wanted to clear up misunderstandings in the season one epilogue but many readers have been viewing Yoon bum very negatively, thus I unfortunately am uploading this author’s note. I am still in the process of figuring out the storyline of this series and I’m very frustrated that I can’t tell you what will happen in the story. Season 1 of thus(This?) story has only barely finished, and I am hurt to hear the criticisms about the character Yoon bum. Worries the readers have for and about yoombum are misunderstandings.”

“Yoon bum is a fictional stalker character but I wanted to build a sort of reality for myself in the fiction. Yoon bum lives in the story but I wanted the readers to experience the fear of obsession, the disturbing reality he faces everyday that makes our butt/teeth clench (Chips note: it’s an awkward phrase to directly translate so I just replaced it with something we normally say) is what my goal is. I don’t know if this is better for advertising purposes.. however this story is fiction and I’d like to confirm that rumours/inquiries about it being a true story are all false. I apologise for causing worry from chapters 19 and onwards. This will always be work I take much pride in. Thank you for reading Killing Stalking. Please take care of me in the future. Thank you!”

queenconsuelabananahammock  asked:

Were Mila and Danny a thing??? I mean I had ~a feeling~ that they may have been at some point but...what's the tea 👀

They weren’t, as said by them plenty of times and the facts one can add.

I’m not much of a RPF fan, so I’m going to try and make this response as clear and informative as I can. But,

  • She was underage for most part of the show. He being 7 years older than her would had been a little bit crazy and honest to god disgusting if they were a thing. Which I don’t believe they were because
  • Both were on relationships by the time the rumor of them being a thing was spread. He has always present as a very monogamous man, liking and having serious and long relationships, which he had during the show and after, before marrying Bijou Philips. While Mila was also in a long term serious relationship with actor Macaulay Culkin.
  • Another thing to add is the fact that both had refer to the other as their brother/sister, which makes sense since he seemed to have bonded with her pretty early during filming.
  • After the show ended, and their relationships too, they didn’t had a reason to hide if they had been together, but to this day they keep saying the same: they never dated, they see each other as brother/sister, it was only a rumor.

Rumors started because a tabloid published they were together after Mila went with Danny to the premiere of one of Ashton’s movies, ‘Just Married’. They were holding hands on some of the press pictures:

And while I understand some people take this as OH THEY ARE DATING, well– No. We sexualize every human touch so much we take some people holding hands as being intimate in a romantic way. But Danny was dating someone and so was she, and even with all his crap, he has always show certain respect for his couple. So I don’t believe this means anything.

I understand some people don’t hold their loved ones’ hands if they aren’t sexually together, but not everyone is like that. I do hold hands with my friends, male and female, and my brother, and my mom, and my nices and nephews. So honestly? Some respect to the actors that gave us such an amazing fictional couple to care about, would be great

Not just that, but Danny Masterson is a very touchy and handsy man. So really, don’t take it so serious.

Now, another thing I understand is that people may think something happened. But as long as they say no, I believe them and I respect them enough to not gossip about it, especially so many years after these things happened and she’s married to one of Danny’s best friends if not his best friend.

To finish, some cute facts about their friendship:

  • It is said he took her to her prom,
  • But other people say this information is flase, that in fact because of filming, she couldn’t make it to her prom, so the cast took her to a club instead and he was her ‘date’.
  • He was the one who told Ashton to kiss Mila, who had never kissed anyone at that point. Danny told him he would pay him 20 bucks if he did it. He did. EDIT: I’ve been told Danny told him to give her tongue in one of their early kisses in the show, and he would pay him. But Ashton didn’t do it.
  • She participated in plenty of his Scienciology acting events, there’s plenty of pictures of that, that are honest to god kind of cute.
  • During season 8 filming, she would still sit on his lap between takes and be with him most times.
  • They were very comfortable around the other, which make their on-screen relationship incredible. Their chemistry is something I feel added a lot to Jackie and Hyde’s relationship.
  • She said she felt Jackie became less shallow because of Steven.
  • He called her a ‘small russian fairy’ because she pretty as hell and well, she’s ukranian.
  • There’s lots of interviews with Danny happily saying Hyde became better around Jackie, because he is like the captain of the ship.
  • This picture:

If there was ever something more than friendship between them, which I don’t believe, they have decided to mantain it with themselves and we, as fans, must respect that and their personal lifes. So, better not gossip about it.

Thank you for your question! :)

I like to think that every story is reality somewhere, and fiction is just a window to alternate realities.

I feel like Sasuke and Naruto are real people with real souls.

Every story about them -the one Kishimoto wrote, and the derivative works written by countless fans throughout the years- is, in some way rooted in distant, parallel, real alternate universes.

When one of them dies, the other waits for him in a place outside of time. When they meet in this place between lifetimes, they talk.

How people think Fan fiction writers look when writing: 

How we actually look: 

it is. Fucked Up. that so many people in fandom are so in tune to the ways elves and mages can be oppressed in a fictional universe - including awareness of slurs and systemic/historic oppression - but the second a real life person approaches them with regards to offensive language or a brown paper doll OC etc suddenly that awareness switches off. suddenly it’s an attack, a baseless accusation that you must defend yourself from. the anons swarm into your inbox validating your priceless work versus the ‘sjws’ and the bullies of fandom. ‘reality is separate from fiction’.

i’m speaking as someone who used to be a huge solavellan fan, who used to follow all of the white BNFs and read all their fic and all that. it’s possible - if you take one second to read all the stuff that people of colour are putting out despite not being paid - to educate yourself and reconsider what your priorities are.
