so why not make a photoset

Shisui Week day 6: Tattoo Kagami Uchiha

The fact that social justice tumblr is so outspokenly and aggressively against veganism really underlines my growing realisation that a lot of “activism” on this website has its basis in performative efforts, rather than true moral beliefs and convictions. A lot of this supposed activism is all noise and no action.

It’s terribly easy to hit that reblog button, slap on a “#sj” or “#signal boost”, and proceed to contribute precisely nothing to the cause. It requires the same amount of effort to reblog a social justice post as it does to churn out shitposts and vine compilations. Doesn’t exactly put the “active” into activism, does it? That callout post you liked the other day? Really put a stop to the rise of the far right.

This extreme need to be the most woke, the most progressive, the most ideologically pure, all while putting in an absolute bare minimum of effort, is precisely why so many self-proclaimed activists and social justice advocates despise the idea of veganism. You can’t become vegan by reblogging a bunch of photosets and sending out a few angry anons. You have to actually make changes that will affect your daily life.

So when they gleefully call all vegans rich white racists, pointedly speaking over poor vegans and vegans of colour, when they circulate posts about mistreated vegetable farmers (pretending they never ate a vegetable in their life), but ignore the treatment of workers in the meat and dairy industries, when they regurgitate over and over every single scrap of misinformation that lets them maintain their façade of righteousness /all while never examining their own actions and inactions/, they are proving over and over that they would sooner stab their own ideals in the back than take a good hard look at themselves and put even an ounce of dedication behind their empty claims.

“We live in a world where you say ‘black,’ you say ‘white,’ you say anything and people get mad. We’re in a very hyper sensitive place. And I don’t know why people don’t just stop and think, ‘This is art. This is an art form. Let me see what this is actually about before I become defensive.’ Pause,”

“Sam is a black woman. She does have black woman experiences in terms of racism and oppression and just general bias. But she doesn’t know what it’s like to be a dark-skinned black woman. And I think Sam does feel really stuck and she makes up for that by being so loud.” - Logan Browning, W Magazine

Don't get me wrong, I love your dog and all of your pets, they're adorable and I liked seeing them. My point was that through passively scrolling down my dashboard today I'd seen it at least 10 times. It's your blog, you can post what you want, but if you're going to reblog something that many times in a day please don't put it in popular tags that people follow because it makes something that was cute into something upsetting and stressful, it's inconsiderate. Thank you for reading

(( OOC: I’m going to take a moment to address this.

Before you make an accusation, make sure it has a base. I did not reblog that photoset 10 times. I posted it once… if you happen to be following people that reblogged it from me, unfortunately I have no control over what they reblog… and you will end up seeing a puppy on your dash 10 times. 

Regardless… even if I had reblogged that post 10 times, there’s a simple solution to your problem. Use the .5 seconds it takes to scroll past it, and do so. 

There’s no reason why seeing a post about a puppy on your dash should ruin your day. That’s you making a personal decision to get upset over something that is a non issue.  

Furthermore, if you have a concern with another person’s posts, be careful with how you express it. The ask that I received from you yesterday was impolite and demanding, or should I say “upsetting and stressful”. 

I apologize for the blunt way I’m addressing this, I’ve had one hell of a month. ))

“O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou, Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name,” Mr. Rogers says, and about half the class sighs dreamily. He looks up from his book. “Can anyone tell me what ‘wherefore’ means in this context?” He looks at the array of hands that shoot up in the air. “Wanda?”

“It means ‘why’,” she says.

“Exactly. So she’s asking… anyone?”

“She’s asking why he has to be a Montague, versus any other family,” says a voice from the doorway.

Mr. Rogers looks up and smiles. “Right you are, Mr. Barnes. To what do we owe the honor?” He runs a hand through his thick hair and pushes his thick black glasses up on his nose, and a few members of the class shoot each other knowing looks.

“You forgot your dongle in my classroom last night,” Mr. Barnes says. There’s a chorus of ‘ooooohs’ from the students and Mr. Barnes shoots them a look as Mr. Rogers rolls his eyes. “It’s a computer part,” he says, holding it up for the class to observe.

“Nasty,” Tony Stark says from the back.

“Tony,” Mr. Rogers says, sharp.

“Oooh, you’re in the shit,” Clint whispers to Tony, who just rolls his eyes.

Mr. Rogers walks across the room to Mr. Barnes and takes the dongle with a smile. “Thanks for bringing it back,” he says.

“Not a problem,” Mr. Barnes responds, then gives Mr. Rogers a friendly nudge on the arm. “But maybe keep better track of your stuff, okay? You’re always leaving things in my classroom after practice.”

Mr. Rogers bites his lip and nods. “Sorry about that.”

“Nah, nothing you gotta apologize for. But I should quit interrupting your class and get going.”

“Okay. See you later,” Mr. Rogers says, and watches Mr. Barnes back out of the room and shut the door with such a look of pure, simple longing that it’s almost embarrassing to look.

“Oh. My. God.” Clint says to Tony. “He’s into him?”

“Duh,” Tony says as he picks at the edge of his worksheet. “You should see them during Scholastic Bowl practice. It’s gratuitous and disgusting.”

“Huh,” Clint says, looking up to Mr. Rogers, who is now blushing as he tries to move on with the lecture. “That’s funny.”

“Here,” Tony says, shoving the paper at Clint, “we wrote this after practice yesterday. The syllabic structure’s pretty mediocre but we had some fun.”

Clint reads:

Mr. Barnes & Mr. Rogers: A Nerdy Tragedy

Two departments, both alike in dignity

In fair high school, where we lay our scene,

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where class budgets make tenured staff ill at-ease.

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes

A pair of star-cross’d lovers coach the team;

Whose misadventures piteous overthrows

Do with their love bury their departments’ strife.

The fearful passage of their nerd-mark’d love,

And the continuance of their departments’ rage,

Which, but their teacher’s love, nought could remove,

Is now the two hours’ traffic of our Scholastic Bowl meet;

The which if you with patient ears attend,

What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

“Passing notes?” Clint nearly jumps out of his seat and sees Mr. Rogers standing in front of him, eyebrow raised. Before Clint can come up with an answer, Mr. Rogers takes the paper from his hands and starts to read. Clint looks to Tony, who looks at Clint with wide eyes. They both look up at Mr. Rogers who is turning redder by the moment. Mr. Rogers looks up at them, then quickly back down to the paper, and back up at them. He clears his throat. “I’ll be throwing this out,” he says, shoving the paper into the pocket of his blazer and walking away.

“He’s gonna read that to Mr. Barnes tonight while they bang,” Tony whispers into Clint’s ear.

Clint bursts out laughing, and ends up with detention.

Since I was born, I’ve always been the one with the favorite. I’ve had a favorite doll that I always bring with me, a favorite cousin that I shower with gifts and kisses, a favorite candy that make my teeth rot, and now I have 7 favorite boys that I love so dearly. Probably someday, I’d move on and leave this fan girl life. Maybe I’d find someone that’ll be the center of my universe as you boys are to me right now. But for now, I just want to thank you for everything that you’ve done for me and for everyone. 

To Kim Namjoon, thank you for being the pillar that we all needed. With the eloquent speeches that your members wanted to express but didn’t know how and the expressive lyrics that have not only touched but also comforted peoples’ (fans or not) hearts, you’ve showed us how the right words could save and inspire another person’s life. 

To Kim Seokjin, thank you for bringing laughter and joy to everyone with your old man jokes and your ridiculous confidence. You’ve made us realize that it is always more gratifying to hear other people’s laughter mingling with our own even with the little things we say and do. 

To Min Yoongi, thank you for expressing yourself in the music that you make and the actions that you show. You’ve taught us that even through the most vulnerable of words expressed, one could still be strong and resilient yet even without the presence of words, love can still be felt. 

To Jung Hoseok, thank you for lifting everyone’s mood up every single time. You’ve made us believe that even when we think the world is always against us, there’s always that light at the end of the tunnel and all we needed is a little spark of hope to keep moving forward. 

To Park Jimin, thank you for letting your happiness shine through to your laughter and smiles. You’ve showed us that no matter how sad we’re feeling, a little act of kindness and compassion can be shown through just a little crack of a smile.

To Kim Taehyung, thank you for being and thinking completely out of the box. You’ve showed us the importance of embracing our true selves by being unique and different. and that no mater what anyone says, at the end of the day, how we accept ourselves is what really matters most. 

To Jeon Jungkook, thank you for showing us your will and determination in everything that you do. You’ve inspired us to be the best version of ourselves and made us realize that we can reach our dreams with the right amount of effort and passion for it.

To Bangtan, thank you for the beautiful songs that touch our hearts. the words you’ve written and the lyrics you’ve sung mean more to us not only because they mean a lot to you, but also because we know those words and melodies were made with the thought of us. 

Thank you for showing us your beautiful camaraderie and friendship right from the start.  You’ve taught us that platonic love is as important as every other love there is and that it should never be taken for granted because during times when we feel alone in the dark, only the people who’ve accepted who you are as a person are also the only people who’d hold your hand and never let you walk alone to make you feel that you are never alone in this cold, cold world.

Lastly, thank you for loving us every way you know how. each of you goes out of your way just to let us know that we’re always in your mind, never making us feel that we’re only on the outside looking in. with every tweet, every vlive, and even in speech acceptance stages, you’ve made us feel as if we’re all standing right there beside you, holding your hand and i think that’s what we all love the most about you. I honestly don’t know the right words to say because i have so much feelings that even hundreds of thousands of words could not be enough to express whatever it is i’m feeling right now. All I can say is that I love you guys. So, so much. And that I’m proud of whatever each of you have become in those 4 years we’ve spent with you. 

Happy 4th Anniversary to the beautiful boys who never fail to inspire me, to the playful dorks who never fail to make me laugh, to the gorgeous men who never fail to make my heart hurt just by looking at them, and to the lovable kids who didn’t fail to make me love them with all my heart. 

I love you, 방탄소년단! Let’s be together for a long time! Keep surprising people and let’s show the world why you deserve the world and more.  #4yearswithBTS

Paris Dates w/ Jeonghan Moodboard

because i am so in love with that photo of him & it gives me super ~european~ vibes i just had to make this

Funfact: that photo of the horse-drawn carriage was taken by me last year on my travels around europe, in the city of Bruges. It fit this really well, so I thought why not use it? ^^

~requests are open~

When you and Jackson like each other but Jackson asks you for your friend’s name to give to Mark. You misunderstand and think that Jackson likes your friend so you distance yourself from Jackson. Jackson then gets Mark to talk to you and Mark accidentally reveals that Jackson likes you after which you and Jackson confess to each other~

Guys. GUYS. This was originally 15 texts and I had to condense it because a photoset can’t be more than 10. Tumblr! Why you do this?

Anne with an E  |  Ep 1 | Your Will Shall Decide Your Destiny

‘I never understood it. If children are such a burden, then why do people have so many of them?’

izzybutt replied to your photoset:

   I like how he seems to think that him being socially inept is supposed to magically make you comfortable with him being a total goddamn creeper.   

When a guy is being inappropriate because he’s in Geek Culture the kindest thing to do is smile and let him think he’s good at socializing so he always behaves exactly that way and never understands why he’s unsuccessful with women, so he convinces himself it’s their fault because there’s nothing wrong with him and hates all women with violent burning jealous rage

Taengsic AU: Despite living in different galaxies, Taeyeon and Jessica somehow discovered a way to communicate with each other. The two quickly became friends and soon developed feelings for each other, taking long distance relationships to a whole new level. Being so much in love yet so far apart, they decided to depart on a journey across the universe so that they could finally be together.

The Foxhole Court: Fic Rec Masterpost

Okay, so. There are some really great fics in this fandom and, as I have absolutely no photo editing skills, I can’t make those pretty photosets to rec them. Thus, this post. I will be updating it with time <3


Complete

Lessons in Cartography by crazy_like_a

Nora mentioned in her extra content that Neil slowly maps out Andrew’s body and then this fic happened. Starts after The King’s Men.

Why you should read it: This is basically the Fourth Unnofficial Book ™ we never got. It’s smutty, but the sex isn’t there for the sake of sex. It’s about Neil and Andrew, about their relationship progressing, about Andrew learning to trust Neil with his body and Neil learning how to live a life he didn’t except to have… It’s great, that’s what I’m trying to say. It’s my favourite fic of all times in this fandom. Go read it.

WIP

Hazes by Spinsy

Their entire relationship could be viewed through a series of hazes - ranging from the sweetest of affections, to the deadliest of diseases - that broke down their carefully constructed defense mechanisms. When Neil felt the need to run, Andrew always grounded him to a home. When Andrew felt the need to self-destruct, Neil always gave him a reason not to.

For that, Neil will take on their difficulties any day.

Why you should read it: Andrew has a nightmare and hurts Neil one day. They deal with it. It’s very angsty.

we might be hollow (but we’re brave) by stttmsbwa

Andrew is looking to live his life in peaceful nothingness, but his new neighbor’s cat won’t stop sneaking onto his balcony. As much as he tries to not make it into something, Andrew finds himself drawn to the mysterious and tempting man next door.

Neil is just trying to find a reason to not leave Palmetto after everyone else has moved on. But he never thought he would want to run toward something in favor of running away.

(In a slightly different world, two people find themselves meeting in a softer setting and in just as much need of each other. A story about dealing with pasts, sharing secrets and a cat who is an asshole yet manages to charm everyone around it.)

Why you should read it: Neil and Andrew are neighbours, and Neil’s cat loves Andrew. It starts very cute and turns very angsty. Just one chapter left!

One shot

at the edge of what was by BurningFairytales

He flips Neil’s phone open and scrolls through the call history. It’s not a long list; his own name is at the bottom, then there’s a call from Nicky one from Dan. There’s an outgoing call from Neil’s phone to Andrew’s – that day they went to Atlanta – and one to a number that isn’t saved but that Andrew recognises as Bee’s.

And then there’s a call from an unknown number, no more than an hour ago.

He wants to call it. He wants to call it and demand where Neil is, wants to find out whoever the number belongs to and bash their head into a wall, break every bone in their body until Neil is back with them.

Why you should read it: It’s Baltimore from Andrew’s point of view, using all the headcanons Nora has mentioned in her blog. It will break your heart, but you will be happy about it.

Kairos by redketchup

In this life, Nathaniel Wesninski runs.

In another, he stays.

Why you should read it: It’s an AU about how Neil ran after the FBI rescues him from Nathan’s house. It’s beautifully written. It hurts.

coin toss universe by SashaSea

A sort-of AU that follows the professional careers and media misadventures of Andrew and Neil.

Why you should read it: I’d say it’s more of a Future Fic than an AU. It’s funny, it’s well-written, and I just love how Andrew and Neil fuck with the press. Remember those headcanons everything has? It’s here, in fic-format.

‘til it was near morning by Metis_Ink

When the days change for Andrew, they start at the beginning.

Why you should read it: It’s a very short fic (just above 1k) about Andrew reflecting on mornings and how Neil factors in. It’s just really lovely.

when king laugh come by SashaSea

Andrew sits beside a broken window with a feral smile on his face, and he beckons for Neil before locking them in. “I never,” and there’s a single hitch, a catch of his breath around anger and fear and – and then he’s Andrew again, a whirlwind of noise and motion but for once they take him outside of Neil’s reach and he tries not to notice. “I never asked? Do many people ask, Neil?” He finds the wherewithal to stub out his cigarette into the desk before continuing, hands grasping for answers in the empty air, but he sets his shoulders and leans into Neil’s space like they might be okay. “Really, tell me, in all the years of whatever this is, exactly how many people have ever thought to ask ‘Are you a werewolf?’”

Neil smells ash and smoke and wants to lean into it; the curls of nicotine in the air taste too much like safety. “Including now? You would be the first.”

Why you should read it: If you like supernatural stuff, this is for you. Everything is the same, except Neil and some other characters are werewolves.

Support 500px and 540px Photosets in Your Theme

Intermediate HTML/CSS knowledge required. Some javascript knowledge may help.

This is a fix for photosets on themes until tumblr fixes it on their end. (For photos, see this post.) If tumblr make changes to their photoset code, this script may break, so use at your own risk! This code is THEME-DEPENDENT, as your theme must be designed to display both 500px and 540px width posts.

What this script actually does: It will take the highest resolution images available and shove it into the photoset. 500px photosets will stay 500px wide. 540px photosets will be 540px. If the photoset images are larger than 540px, it will scale down to 540px. There may be flickers, as the images load. This script may lag on pages with many photosets, so you may want to restrict this script to permalink pages.

Why you should do this even if you’re using custom user styles: this makes your blog prettier for everyone else, too!

    
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.js"></script>
<script>
  /* questions? ask oddhour.tumblr.com */
     var updatePhotosetCss = "<style id='updatePhotosetStyle'>  .photoset .photoset_row img { display: block; } .photoset .photoset_row.photoset_row_1 img { max-width: 540px; } .photoset .photoset_row.photoset_row_2 img { max-width: 268px; } .photoset .photoset_row.photoset_row_3 img { max-width: 177px; } .photoset .photoset_row .photoset_photo { margin-left: 4px; } .photoset .photoset_row { text-align: center; width: 540px; } .photoset { width: 540px; }</style>";
   function updatePhotoset() {
        
        $(".photoset:not(.540-resized)").each( function (i, e) {
            if($(this.contentDocument).find("#updatePhotosetStyle").size() <= 0) 
                $(this.contentDocument).find("head").append(updatePhotosetCss);
        	var photoset = $(this.contentDocument).find(".photoset");
        	var photosetRows = photoset.find(".photoset_row");  
            photoset.find(".photoset_photo")
                .each(function () {
                    var hiResSrc = $(this).attr("href");
                    var img = $(this).find('img');
                    img.attr("src", hiResSrc );
                    img.attr("style", "");
                });
    	    photosetRows.attr("style", "");
    	    photoset.attr("style","");
    	    photoset.addClass("540-resized");
    	    $(this).height($(this.contentDocument.body).height());
        });
    }
    
    updatePhotoset();

    var photosetTimer = setInterval(updatePhotoset, 1500);
    $(window).on('load', function () { setTimeout(function() {clearInterval(photosetTimer)}, 2000); })
</script>
    

How to use:

  1. Add this script either before your end body tag (</body>) or in the head section (<head></head>). If you already have jquery on your theme, you don’t need to add that first line; just paste the rest after your jquery library. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s probably best not to change anything.
  2. Update your theme. Your theme must be using the responsive photoset tag i.e. {Photoset}, not {Photoset-250} or any of the numbered variants.
  3. If your photosets display at the correct size but appear cut off, your theme’s post containers are probably designed to hold 500px width posts. You must update your theme so the post containers and columns are at least 540px wide. Themes vary, so you must understand HTML/CSS for this last step.

Note: if you want to just have all photosets at 540px (stretching photosets made for 500px), use {Photoset} and make your container 540px width.
