Me Before You was really ableist and gross actually. It sucks that people went to go see it and even more so that people enjoyed it? The message is basically "disability is tragedy and disabled people are better off dead". I mean, you must have heard about this somewhere?

I mean if that’s how you saw it then fine, that’s your take on the movie and that’s yours to own, but that’s not what I saw it as. Like I saw it not as a general statement on disability but on this one mans story. And the reality is, there are people that end up entirely paralysed and entirely dependent on others for everything, and are in pain constantly, who would rather make the choice to die the way they choose to die, not wait for death to get them. I didn’t see the film as saying “disability is tragedy and disabled people are better off dead”, i saw it as a film that was making a political statement about euthanasia. I saw it as a film that was saying, not just about disabled people, but also terminally ill people, that is it fair, if someone is not happy, and they’re not going to get better, and they’re suffering, is it fair if they know they’re going to die eventually, for us to make them wait in pain and suffering for the inevitable, when we could give them the ownership of that, give them that choice to go out how and when they want to, peacefully and not in pain. Now obviously there are millions of disabled people out there that don’t feel like this, that are clearly happy and doing their thing, and enjoying life, but there are also the ones that are not. Idk, i just didn’t see it as a general statement on disability, and more as a statement on euthanasia in individual cases. 

Let me start out by pointing out what I have observed this past week.

For some reason, my followers, specifically the squad, have been getting attacked non-stop by atheists, those who are claiming there is no God. This has been the largest attack I have ever seen, and I have seen quite a few people get attacked for their faith and beliefs online.

That being said, I am well aware Tumblr leans towards the more liberal side of things. That was revealed to me the very first week I joined here, and that was also a reason why I highly considered getting off Tumblr and never speaking of it again. However, I am glad I have not deleted my account, because I have met a ton of awesome people who have really inspired me.

But I would also like to point out these attacks are doing nothing to change our mind. Absolutely nothing. That’s really amazing to me. Every single day for the past week, my friends have been bombarded with confrontations, accusations, and really rude and vulgar comments. It’s actually ridiculous, because now people are creating blogs to just attack us. Not to have fun on here, but to prove their point.

However, I would also like to say thank you to all the people who have supported us during this really odd time. My friends and I have had multiple people come on and thank us for our testimonies and encouraged us to continue in the faith with God. And as another bonus, the squad has become closer with one another despite all the negativity, and I’ve actually made some new friends during this week because of what they’ve seen us do. I just really want to say thank you to everyone who has encouraged us. I’m thankful for each and every one of you.

No matter what happens, God is in control.

Sam Wilson is a Hoe™ much like Anthony + he starts working his magic on Thor, is all cuddled up next to him, practically sitting in his lap at the latest Avengers party and rubbing on his muscles.

It’s the first time in a long time that Thor has found himself distracted whilst telling a story.

y’all i tried a bath bomb for the first time yesterday and it make my skin so goddamn soft and moisturized i did not have to put any lotion on at all. 

not a single bit.

do you realize how it feels for someone with super dry skin all over to not have to put a single drop of lotion on anywhere???

Is there or ever been a ReiSaru week? Asking since you are one of the biggest K blog on here. Sorry to bother you.

There hasn’t been a Reisaru week yet as far as I know – we had Reisaru Day back on April 24th but that’s it. Fear not though, anon, because there is hope on the horizon! Some of the K fans on Twitter have been talking about having a Reisaru week (last I saw it was leaning towards somewhere around November?). There are definitely people interested in one, I’m looking forward to it myself whenever we have it :D

Goes on Goodreads to try and find something new to read.

Scrolls through my recommended page, looks at a few lists, carries out a few searches.

…proceeds to slink back to AO3, muttering about bland storylines I’ve read what feels like a million times before and rarely offers anything interesting or new anymore.

It honestly feels like coffeeshop AUs have more damn variety than so much of the published fiction out there.

I find I no longer care about the ‘chosen one’, I don’t give a shit about destined soulmates in published fiction anymore, and soulmate tropes are a serious weakness of mine, but I’ve read too many brilliant fics on soulmates to be able to care about some of the ridiculously insipid women and overly macho men in published soulmate works.

I don’t give a damn about the bad guy, he’s pathetic and clearly going to die, after all his posturing and flexing of muscles against the ‘hero’.

The ‘damsel in distress’ is not appealing.

Now I adore vampires, and spirits, and werecreatures, and such but their published versions are really starting to bug me.

Know what I’d like to read right now?

I’d like to read about someone coming into the world of the supernatural for the first time, having to deal with all the ridiculousness, I don’t want any big bad thing to come crashing down that turns this newbie into some special little snowflake, I don’t care if there’s romance or not. Just everyday problems, and new experiences, while trying to figure out their place in this new world, or if their place has actually changed at all from their old one.

I dunno, I just want something easy, and amusing, and that won’t make me grit my teeth in frustration, or sigh in annoyance.

Is that really too much to ask?

…probably.

the greatest lie ever sold in dragon age is that it is about mages versus templars.

it’s mages vs an oppressive organization that jails and abuses mages, leashes templars with lyrium and conditions them to abuse their charges, and find ways to screw over any race that isn’t human and rain exalted marches against people that follow religions that threaten to overtake them, all in the name of the maker and the ‘greater good’.

Stop Erasing Women of S.H.I.E.L.D. 2K16

everything you need to know about stranger things (spoiler free)

Netflix-original drama stars award-winning actress Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, who lives in a small Indiana town in 1983 – inspired by a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences. When Joyce’s 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, she launches a terrifying investigation into his disappearance with local authorities. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.

Netflix Original Series. I shouldn’t even have to say more and you should be interested because when Netflix does something they never let you down. Netflix out does themselves with this one, they go above and beyond.

If Steven Spielberg and Stephen King had a baby with the creative directors of Silent Hill and every 80s film you ever loved this is what would have come out of it. I was hooked in the first 10 minutes of the show because there is just absolutely nothing like it on tv or on any platform. The Duffer Brothers are also writers of Wayward Pines so if you are a fan of that you will be a huge fan of this, small towns and every jump scare you could possibly think of is what this show has.

You’ve got your classic E.T. style kids who want to find their missing best friend, but for once they are SMART. It’s not like kids on tv today who run and hide under their bed from things that are coming to get them. It’s the kind of kids who THINK and are intelligent, they are the brilliantly witty and have well thought plans that actually work. All of the young actors in this are fantastic.

Meet Eleven. The most brilliant and amazing girl you will ever see in a television show. She is the hero of this entire show and the most precious girl in the whole world. Telekinetic Warrior Hero. Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven is just outstanding. The emotional weight and gestural acting that carries every scene she is in all combine into one of the best performances of any character I have ever seen. She is haunting and brought me to tears. 

Joyce (Winona Ryder) is so good in this role she will kill you in every scene, the way she feels and her acting is just so good. I was crying every time she was crying and I am sure you will be too once you get attached to the story. She is stunning in this role. She will tear your heart out and get you hooked right off the bat.

Did someone say brothers?? Are you looking for your next brother show?? Older brother losing his mind when his little brother goes missing?? Jonathan played by (Charlie Heaton) is so fantastic and emotional charged. He’s smart, thoughtful and incredibly kind but most importantly he wants to find his brother Will played by (Noah Schnapp). Will who is missing for the entire 8 episode series absolutely destroyed me, he was so good and just smart in every way possible. He never stopped thinking about how stay safe and not get himself killed, he is the first child in a tv show I have ever seen that actually didn’t go hide but instead he went and knew how to protect himself. Jonathan will do anything to save his brother and he also makes him mix tapes to teach him the best kind of music. It’s honestly the cutest thing in the world.

SAY HELLO. TO ALLISON ARGENT 2.0. YOU THINK SHE IS SWEET AND INNOCENT WHICH SHE IS BUT SHE CAN HANDLE HERSELF. SHE KICKS SO MUCH ASS, SHE IS SO SMART. I LOVE HER. NANCY PLAYED BY NATALIA DYER WILL EAT YOUR HEART OUT.

Stranger Things is a show that will surprise you and hit you hard, if you don’t find it in the first episode you will find that it hits you really hard during one of the episodes and it is life changing. Before you start asking ‘is it about aliens’ the answer is no. This show is not about aliens, think more Fringe Science and other worldly but not ‘out of this world’ This show’s roots are in mystery, true horror and nostalgia for the ‘80s. 

I’m not going to spoil anything but the monster of the show is very Silent Hill mixed with Slither. It was alot if you aren’t used to horror but after a while you will get used to it. This show is the best thing to happen in so long so please don’t pass it up. Check it out, watch it and love it. You’ve got everything from ladies, to diverse best friends, brothers, supernatural horror, other dimensions, time and space, family and best friends loving Lord of The Rings and D&D together.

The acting, directing, writing, design style, soundtrack and production is better than most movies today and will knock your socks off. This show is something everyone needs to see, and it will change the way you see tv. The story is original, the writing is all original and everything about it is so fresh and new it’s so different from anything that is on today.
