really proud of this one you should reblog it

So, you know the guy who proclaimed “There’s been a mistake.  Moonlight – you guys won Best Picture” and held up the card for everyone to see?  The guy who thought he had just won an Oscar only to realize he hadn’t and was probably humiliated, but was only concerned with making sure sure everyone knew Moonlight was the winner?  The guy who SHUT DOWN Kimmel’s “I would like to see you get an Oscar anyway – why can’t we just give out a whole bunch of ‘em?” with a very deliberate “I’m gonna be really proud to hand this to my friends from Moonlight?”  The guy who, when the cast, producers, and director of Moonlight came on stage, immediately went over to hand them their Oscar and to hug every one of them?

His name is Jordan Horowitz and HE IS JEWISH and I am proud.

Kihyun’s abs

Ok just one thing. I’m going to be brutally honest here. 

I absolutely fucking loathe the way people talk about Kihyun’s abs. 

I’m not going to reblog even one picture of his stomach because even if he’s my bias and probably really proud of his achievement, IT’S NOT LIKE THIS ISN’T THE EXACT REASON WHY HE’S BEEN STARVING.

How can you people act WORRIED over him losing weight and then jizz over the fact that he has abs now?

What’s the deal with kpop idols having abs? Why is it so important? Why do you care? Why are you guys pretending every idol should act and be just like they want to, and then scream your ears deaf when he has seen enough extra effort to form a couple of extra fucking lumps in his stomach? 

They’re not doing this for themselves. Some of you guys don’t do much else but blabber about abs and arms and toned chest muscles so of COURSE they’re going to think that’s the only thing that matters to us. When you’re literally drooling over Wonho’s and Shownu’s bodies, it IS showing the rest of the members a certain message. They’re entertainers, they know what’s up, they know we sexualize and fetishize their bodies to infinity. Kihyun is not stupid. We’ve been making him an effeminate, tiny hamster mom with chubby cheeks and whatever inaccurate bullshit we can come up with - of fucking course he’s been trying his hardest to prove us otherwise.

Wonho may have been working out just because he has always enjoyed doing so, same goes for Shownu. They have been striving for getting fit bodies and even if it’s because of unhealthy beauty standards, it’s still something that’s not solely coming from us fans. Kihyun, however, was here mostly because of his singing skills. He was convinced he could make a lasting impression with that alone, maybe combined with his cute face. But now, with endless comparison and unhealthy praising (towards certain members for their physical appearance) and stupid joking nicknames that decide his personality for him, he’s internalized the idea that he should also flash you some abs (judged by your reaction, it’s almost like he just showed his dick to us) to get enough validation that he’s a real man.

This “real man” thing and its byproducts are a serious cultural problem in Korea among men, so he’s most likely trying harder and harder to convince not only himself, but also his members and us that he can also fit into the same category.

Seriously, this is why men don’t believe us when we say women have it worse when it comes to a social pressure to look good. Abs are nice, for sure, but they’re also just muscles that literally EVERYONE has under the layer of stomach fat that protects our internal organs. Getting rid of that stomach fat requires a lot of unhealthy dieting (draining yourself up) and training and even people who do it for a professional purpose, know that even if you have rock-hard abs, they don’t just miraculously stay there for years to come, but instead they disappear and reappear several times a day because of all that nutrition you ingest. To have us see them, he and Wonho most likely didn’t eat or drink before getting up to the stage.

You know, maybe, just maybe he wouldn’t have to literally put his health in danger if his fans weren’t so thirsty to see that one part of him aside from his dick that proves he’s a “real man”. (Why else would you be so excited? It’s just lumpy skin. It’s just his stomach. But we all are very much aware of what abs are actually representing in our culture. We’re calling him cute and fluffy and whatnot but when he shows signs of conventional masculinity, we’re celebrating it much more than him actually acting cute.) 

Sigh.

It’s not wrong to be happy for him because he reached a goal he’s been trying to achieve for several months. But you have to remember that his goal might not even end here, that he might continue this unhealthy lifestyle and that he’s doing it because of us fans comparing him to his members. Even his friends were worried for him yesterday in the V live for losing too much weight (ofc it was again not his health really but his looks, because they literally can’t get past of that ever, but it’d be nice if WE could be the people that help them see more, since we’re not enslaved in that industry). 

And you have to remember that celebrating him for having abs kind of ruins your images as concerned Kihyun fans. He was proving his actions RIGHT in the concert. The idea that he should lose a lot of weight in order to be approved was reinforced. From now on, it’ll be even harder to convince him he should stop. Just look at the reactions he got. 

How to be a happy fanfic writer

I’ve been writing fanfic for 6 years now, 2 ½ of those CS fanfic, and I still consider myself a mostly happy writer. Maybe it’s just my impression, but lately I’ve been seeing more and more complaints from fellow writers that they are frustrated, stressed, fight with their muse… and that’s not how it should be! A wodnerful thing like writing should make us happy, not exhaust us. Now we’re all different types of writers, and the way we write and perceive reactions (or non-reactions) of the readers depends very much from our respective personalities.

But I thought I’d share a few thoughts why I think I’m a (mostly) happy writer, and maybe some of you might find some of these thoughts helpful. Because I think we do well only what we love doing, not what we’re pressured - or pressure ourselves - to. (I’m putting it under the cut, so those of you interested can take a look, and the others don’t have so much to scroll past)

Oh gosh thank u for reblogging my art OTL Your fic is incredible and I was so giddy while reading I've been absolutely head over heels for this ship and you've done them so much justice I just sat there reading what you have so far in like one sitting haha ^^ it's so good and you should be proud of your characterization imo

awww of course i would reblog it! that scene was one of my favourites to write ahha. my betas and i were dying while we were reviewing that part since it was so fluffy.

i’m glad i did the boys some justice!!! i was really unhappy with the way they (izuku especially) have been portrayed in a few fics i read, so i took a lot of time figuring out how to write their characters. i had to change some things since i needed to keep their experiences and their older age in mind, while keeping their core personalities intact–i’m glad everyone likes the way they’ve been portrayed!!

Tumblr types por hoshido?

  • Ryoma - Sushi and anime blog. He’s Japan’s version of a weeaboo. 
  • Hinoka - Fitblr. She’s got vegan recipes and pictures of people at the gym and different workouts outlined, with the occasional bird post. 
  • Takumi - One of those edgy emo kid blogs with sad quotes. Brood brood brood. 
  • Sakura - Medblr probably. She’d likely become a doctor and just put pictures of cadavers like, Normal day at school! 
  • Saizo - Just a bunch of edgy should-be-on-a-Hot-Topic-shirt quotes and pictures. 
  • Kagero - Art blog. A lot of it is eccentric and no one really understands her art tastes, but she’s in love with her blog and you can’t bring yourself to criticize her taste. 
  • Azama - Music and lifestyle blog. He’s got a clean, neat aesthetic that he’s very proud of, and will blacklist as many things as he needs to in order to keep his dash neat as well. 
  • Setsuna - Reblogs of really dreamy and whimsical images of things like water waves or outer space. Just anything that makes you feel warm or lost in thought. 
  • Hinata - Fandom blog for Fairy Tail, probably. Or John Cena, whatever. 
  • Oboro - Fashion blog. Primarily she deals with Asian fashion, whether it be Indian lenghas or Japanese yukatas, she’s got it all in her collection. 
  • Hana - Nature blog. She loves nature and photography, so her tumblr is a potpourri of her own and other’s photographs of plants, animals, landscapes, skies, you name it. 
  • Subaki - Just filled with selfies of himself. He has a touch-up app that he uses to make sure any breakouts are concealed and that the perfect amount of light reflects from his eyes. If there is less than 100 notes after 4 hours of posting a picture, he will take it down, for it was less than perfect. 
  • Hayato - Food porn blog. Oh his love of sweets may be something he hides, but he indulges when he’s on tumblr, just frothing at the mouth as he scrolls through pictures of perfectly sculpted cupcakes and smooth, rich brownies. 
  • Kaden - Zootopia fandom blog. 
  • Orochi - Medieval aesthetic blog. She loves the older times of Europe and Feudal Japan, obsessed with the cultural aspects and any images and quotes associated with that pop up on her blog. 
  • Rinkah - Fitblr. She’s the inspiration of so many other girls and always reads the nice messages she gets, feeling warmed by the love she’s showered with and adores seeing her own followers improve their physical shape upon seeing her. 
  • Reina - She probably uses tumblr as Pinterest, she just goes full mom-mode and loves to collect ideas on various projects, but fails at pulling through with any of them. 
  • Yukimura - Book porn. Like images of libraries and old books, writing, all of that he loves. 
  • Scarlet - Social justice blog. She is a very active feminist and eagerly participates in engaging conversations about issues with her country. She does get a hot head a times, but she is so good about apologizing and admitting to her mistakes. 
  • Shiro - Sports blog. He actively posts analysis on recent matches and games for the sports he follows. His favorite sports are Sumo and Cricket. 
  • Kiragi - Archery blog. He’ll create his own niche for it, he’s obsessed with the sport and loves to blog about it, even though his posts get anywhere between 0 and 2 notes. 
  • Asugi - See Hayato. 
  • Selkie - Crafting blog. She loves to make stuff, sewing, knitting, crocheting, sculpting, carving, painting, jewelry making, she loves all of it and has too many projects reblogged for her to ever catch up with. 
  • Hisame - Pickle blog. Very cucumber. 
  • Mitama - Poetry blog. She writes a ton of poems and has a huge following, and often promotes other poets on tumblr, which has earned her a lot of respect and love from all communities of tumblr. 
  • Caeldori - Her blog mainly focuses on falling in and out of love as she progresses through her love life. She has lots of sad and happy quotes and going on her blog means you’re going to want to confess to someone after you’re done scrolling. 
  • Rhajat - South Asian aesthetic blog. She loves the rich culture of South Asia and the Middle East, and her outfits are inspired by much of that traditional apparel. She is educated in the cultural aspects and is very cautious about appropriation. Of course, the occasional hex is mixed in with her posts… shhhh… 
That MCU Thing

All of the asks that I’ve received in the last two days have already been answered publicly on my blog. I did not get any anon hate or warnings, which is odd, given that I’m the one who answered the ask about the MCU roleplay in the first place. Instead, these mysterious anons went after Abbey, the most prominent person blogging about Andy, and Del, who’s currently the focus of the most controversy. That’s pretty fucking transparent.

I agree with Abbey; Andy’s hand-wringing “imposter” post and the anon asks are meant to draw attention away from the former DAYDians who have recently gone public.

Speaking of which, have you read their interviews? The Q&A? They’re really informative and these people should be proud of themselves. Spread those posts far and wide, reblog them, post links, tag the hell out of them–don’t let Andy’s distraction work!

Now, about that roleplay ask: was it real? I don’t know. I’m also kind of wondering about the two other anon asks that I received within the last 24 hours because I get very few asks, as a rule. But frankly, I don’t care. It took five minutes or less to answer each of the three asks. In responding to two of them, I had the opportunity to draw attention again to Andy’s ongoing exploitation of Brittany, to some sketchy shit he’s previously pulled in MCU fandom, to his continual and deliberate blurring of reality and fiction, and to the safest way to respond if approached by him. Overall, I’d call that a win.

I wanted to send you the first manga coloring that I did!! Thank you again for your help finding pages!! This was really hard but super fun :0

Holy shit anon, this is really good! Nice job on your first coloring, this is great! Keep up the good work!  : D

anonymous asked:

do you have any tips for starting a simblr?? i love your blog btw **

awww thank you :) & YES, I will share my top 5 tips for starting a simblr based on my experience so far.

  1. DO NOT BE AFRAID! I promise you. The real people behind these blogs are so sweet! I have met many friends within this community… seriously, please don’t be intimidated.
  2. Be original. Be you. Of course it’s easy to be inspired by many of these simblrs, however, no-one wants to come across as a “copycat”. Post your content and be proud! 
  3. Follow people, lol. It may seem obvious, but really. Follow simblrs who you find interesting. Don’t worry if you don’t get a “follow back”. Most of the time it’s because popular simblrs get a lot of followers and they don’t even notice anymore… lol.
  4. Start slow. Don’t try to overwhelm yourself worrying about the number of posts you should have, the number of likes you recieve, or feeling like you have to post EVERYDAY… remember it takes time & QUALITY is always more appreciated than QUANTITY.
  5. INTERACT with the community… like and reblog posts that you find interesting. Also don’t be afraid to ask questions or message someone to spark a conversation… trust me, they don’t bite <3

hopefully this helped, and INSPIRED you to start a simblr. trust me, you won’t regret it. It probably one of my better decisions, lol. &&& remember to follow me andddd let me know who you are when you begin, lol. 

Overwhelmed

Guys, I gotta say, when i found out that Forever got cancelled, I was so devasted. Even my 3 other siblings (who I convinced to watch it and they love it) were devastated. I mean, the story is interesting, the cast is amazing, and guys, ugh, gotta love the soundtrack. But to know that everyone is trying their best to save the show is absolutely amazing. Petitions going around, people calling in for requests at Netflix, it’s really overwheming and makes me so happy.

If Forever doesn’t get picked up, hey, that’s okay. lol no jks. I will probably be eternally upset. Nah but seriously, if it gets picked up, i just want to thank EVERYONE who was apart of this! It doesn’t matter if you just reblogged a post or signed one petition, every single one of you is important! And when Forever does get saved, EVERYONE should be extremely proud of themselves for making it happen! Remember every sign/call/message counts!

I KNOW WE CAN DO THIS GUYS, DON’T GIVE UP!
