seeing people i hate

people may have differing opinions, but please remember to discuss these opinions with civility, respect, and kindness

if your goal is to pass along an idea and give something to the other person to ponder and reflect upon, approaching with hate is not the way to do it.

if you go to someone and say, “hi, i’m right, you’re dumb,” they’re not gonna listen to you. 

i’d imagine approaching with, “hello, i’d like to give you a different perspective, if you’re willing,” would be accepted much better

so please, be kind

Finn : a complexe, well-rounded, loveable black character

Hux : a white guy we saw 3 minutes in the movie, who said 3 lines, so 
insignificant I didn’t even remember he was there after seeing the movie

this blog is a shaladin safe space.

My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!

(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)

Im tired of skinny white boys being the only gay couples in anything, like give me some black boys in love, give me trans boys of colour holding hands, give me dark skinned asian boys in love, give me some chubby boys holding hands, give me gay relationships where the boys have something other than a chiseled face and clear skin, give me gay relationships with boys who have acne and freckles and stretch marks, give me something else than skinny white boys making out shirtless p l e a s e

Y’all do realise that the only reason Ciel acts the way he does he’s being raised by a literal demon. Like this child went through a horrific traumatic experience that left him with major trust issues and rather than get the love and support he needs he has a this avatar of evil itself encouraging and magnifying every destructive emotion because he finds it amusing.

Ciel’s not a terrible person - Sebastian is.

honestly i’m so tired of people treating makeup and fashion like they can’t be hobbies. like it’s all right for a guy to know every player on every sports team or every car model but when a girl knows every makeup brand or every hand bag on the market she’s a brainless superficial ditz. like it’s a hobby and it doesn’t inhibit us from knowing about politics or what’s going on in the world, so why do assholes care so much that we also know every lipstick shade mac has ever come out with???

if someone disagrees with you on an issue regarding race, that does not automatically mean they are racist.

if someone disagrees with you on an issue regarding feminism,  that does not automatically mean they are sexist.

if someone disagrees with you, that does not mean the other person is a terrible horrible person.

Jyn was abandoned at 16, she’s been fighting to survive by herself. Cassian was raised in the rebellion from age 6, their cause is his own. 

For Cassian it’s a luxury not to care. For Jyn it’s a luxury to be able to.

Your Roleplay is Just Fine

I’ve met a lot of people in my time RPing, and I’ve met a lot of people who are very insecure over their roleplay and get a lot of hate for it. So!

  • Noble roleplayers, whether your house is an entirely original idea or inspired by something else
  • Roleplayers who use titles like “Highlord” or “Archmage” ICly
  • Roleplayers whose characters are “tropes” like the suave rogue woman or the honorable handsome knight
  • Those who roleplay controversial things, like Scarlets and criminals
  • Those who enjoy dark roleplay, in whatever flavor that comes in for you
  • Those who used to be really good at roleplaying, then something happened and you feel like you can’t hold a candle to how you used to be
  • Those who prefer to roleplay background characters like a blacksmith or a cook rather than an adventurer
  • Those who are new and still learning the ropes
  • Those who roleplay LGBTQ+ characters
  • Those who roleplay non-white characters and constantly have to defend as to if it’s “lore friendly,”
  • Those who roleplay having a personal relationship with a major lore character, or having an artifact ICly
  • Those who follow lore to a t
  • Those who stretch lore 
  • Those who disregard lore all together and write their own original stories within the game
  • Roleplayers who try to be as practical as possible when it comes to combat, weapons and armor
  • Roleplayers who prefer to take the more fantastical route, entering battle bare-legged and with a weapon as big as they are
  • One-liner RPers
  • Para RPers

All of you. Your roleplay is just fine. Roleplay what makes you happy, you’ll find people who are into the same stuff that you are.

Roleplayers who are not fine and need some juice and a time out:

  • Those who make anyone feel like they’re lesser or deserving of hate because of how they roleplay

I feel like there is this myth about langblrs and language learners that you see online, that they are studying their target languages all the time, all day, at every second they get. That they are perfect learners who never get it wrong, even if you know they do.

No, we are human, we procrastinate and get tired or bored too. 

We are just like everyone else. I may love a language and find it hard to be motivated or have energy to study or do something in that language, specially in the lower levels when I can’t just watch a YouTube video or whatever in the language.

We are human!

I don’t know about you guys, but I read books because I like escaping the reality around me.  I know books aren’t perfect, I like that about them.  I like that they are the authors stories and the author can tell them however he/she wants to write them.  I don’t go actively looking for problematic things in the books, because I just want to enjoy them.  Stop looking for writers to fail… jfc it fantasy for a reason, not the real world or a contemporary.

Authors, I beg you. Orphan your work on AO3, don’t delete it. People still want to go back and read your fics, even if you’re out of the fandom or don’t want them to be associated with your name for whatever reason. 

Orphan, don’t delete! Please! 

Friendly reminder that Klaus’ letter was preceded by “that is the beginning of another story”, which is meant to highlight key components in the letter, such as Klaus wanting to thank Caroline in person. This suggests that they do eventually meet up, and that their meeting is not a mere fleeting chapter in their lives.

This isn’t a nod to their friendship. They’ve never been just friends. This is a promise of a romantic future. 

There is no doubt in my mind that if Caroline and Klaus were to ever reunite (and according to the finale they do) that Klaus would want something romantic from her. And if you believe otherwise, you’re kidding yourself. 

However long it takes is a throwback to a romantic scene. A romantic scene that suggests a promise of a romantic future between the characters. This isn’t mere banter between friends. Because Caroline has never been just a friend to Klaus. It’s a promise of a romantic future. 

“that is the beginning of another story”
“however long it takes” 

Eventually this story will be realized. And it isn’t a story about friendship.
