such a stupid ship

Some Complaints About Stormpilot

Pfft, yeah, NOBODY is gonna misunderstand what this post is via that title, Pop. Nobody at all. Whatever, I’m not changing it. Moving on.

1) THEY’RE ALL ONE FUCKING CHAPTER LONG

Have you ever gone on the Stormpilot tag on A03? Do you know how many of them are *only* one chapter? A fuckload, that’s how many. Not that there’s anything wrong with one chapter, but I want to get lost in a 50 chapter monster about my goddamn OTP once in a while goddamnit.

2)THE ONES THAT AREN’T A CHAPTER LONG ARE FUCKING REYLO FICS

Disclaimer, I don’t give a fuck if you like Reylo or not. Really, I don’t. I’m not gonna be like “Hrrrrgrr you’re condoning abuse because you like this ship!” because that’s fucking stupid, but you know what else is also fucking stupid? When I *finally* find a Stormpilot fic with multiple chapters and the Kylo Ren/Rey tag on it ends up being code for, “This is 99.9% Reylo with Stormpilot tacked on as an afterthought. There’s no actual development or plot dedicated to them. They’re just mentioned one time.”

*tears out hair* DON’T DO THIS. You don’t need to tag a fucking ship that isn’t in the fucking fic. God lordie fucking fuck. Just do me a favor: write your Reylo fic and don’t mention Stormpilot because you think you’re morally obligated to or something. You’re not. Don’t do it. Stop.

3) THE NAIVE FINN AND SEXY LATIN LOVER POE TROPES

*buries face in a fire ant hill and screams because that would be less painful than this bullshit*

Why. Why does this have to be a thing? It’s so stupid and insulting to both of their characters. Finn isn’t naive, he isn’t an idiot. You know clone troopers? Yeah, those badasses? Nobody ever writes fics where they don’t know what sex is or how to behave around people, or, you know, ANYTHING like that. (Don’t even get me started on the fics that show Finn as incompetent. No. Keep those the fuck away from me I never want to see them ever). No, they’re shown as knowledgeable and competent and total badasses, as they should be. Why can’t Finn get the same treatment? He was part of the deadliest cult in the universe, trained since childhood to be a powerful and emotionless soldier. He wasn’t raised in a goddamn bubble, not to mention that an important part of his backstory is the fact that he was one of the most *gifted* soldiers the First Order ever had. Not only was he gifted, but he was also strong enough to go against years upon years of brainwashing to turn away from the First Order. Would a naive person be able to do that?? Don’t you think if he was naive enough for it to be an issue in the Resistance that maybe, just maybe, he wouldn’t have had the wherewithal to actually leave the First Order at all?

Just stop with this trope before I pop a fucking blood vessel. Please. It’s gonna give me a literal aneurysm one of these days.

And then we have Poe. Poe, who is somehow ALWAYS the sexiest and ALWAYS charming and ALWAYS flirting, no matter the situation.

I’d like to take this moment to direct everyone to Poe Dameron’s wookieepedia page. Where, anywhere, on it does it give even a VAGUE fucking hint that he’s a fucking flirting sex machine?

You’re probably scoffing at this point and saying, “Pop, you hypocrite. What about how often Obi-Wan Kenobi is characterized as a voracious flirt? You’re fine with that!”

Yes, BECAUSE IT’S FUCKING SUPPORTED BY WHAT HE’S DONE IN THE MOVIES, SHOWS, AND BOOKS. Obi-Wan is SHOWN to be a flirt, though whether he means it or not is up to interpretation. It’s who he is shown to be. It’s part of his character. This pristine Jedi Knight flirting with his enemies to throw them off-guard, while underneath it all he has a terrible time with relationships due to years of Jedi training and loss to convince him that it’s bad to have them, but I’ll stop there because this isn’t an Obi-Wan rant post. That’ll come later.

Where the hell is Poe shown to be a voracious flirt? So he gives Finn his jacket, he gives him the fuck me eyes, he *flirts* with Finn. Okay! But why the hell does that translate into him being the biggest flirt in the Resistance? Obi-Wan was shown to flirt with multiple people – Poe is shown to have flirted with one.

“Oh, but Pop, just because he’s a flirt doesn’t mean it has anything to do with his actor’s ethnicity.”

*stares*

Do you want me to make a comprehensive list of fics that have used the words “suave” and “fiery” and “swagger” to describe Poe? Because I will.

Here we have a Latino actor playing a character that isn’t shown to be a huge unabashed sexy man suddenly characterized as a “fiery, suave, swaggering” flirt by a huge part of fandom. *fumes* PEOPLE DON’T EVEN DO THAT TO HAN FUCKING SOLO, AND HE’S THE HUMAN EMBODIMENT OF FIERY, SUAVE, AND SWAGGERING FLIRT. THEY DON’T EVEN DO THAT TO OBI-WAN KENOBI, WHO’S LIKE HAN SOLO TURNED TO FULL FRIGGIN VOLUME.

The worst part is, many, many fics make this his only character trait. He’s a sexy flirt, and that’s it. Nothing about his backstory, nothing about his commitment to the Resistance, nothing about how he’s one of the best pilots to ever live. Nope. We’re just gonna have him make naive Finn feel flustered with his unrepentant flirting and constantly swaggering hips that seem magnetized to every crotch on D'Qar.

I’m not saying there aren’t good Stormpilot fics out there. There are plenty (in fact I’m putting together a buttload for a fic rec list), but holy fucking shit it can be such a bother trying to find them.

P1.I'm so confused! I follow low fat, high carb, starch based diet bit I recently saw a post from a vegan doctor that recommended otherwise: "... I'm not a supporter of the very-lowfat, no oil, starch based approaches (approaches recommended by Drs. McDougall and Esselstyn); the reasons why are discussed below. A decline in metabolism will involve a decline in the rate your body burns sugar (aka glucose); that excess sugar will be converted to triglycerides (blood fats being shipped to storage)

that is a really stupid doctor.  

#1. Metabolism increases on starch based ad libitum diets.  We have the 92+ cal a day recent whole grain published study (Search this tumblr for it) & pcrm’s metabolism study, both I reference in the WSLF Cookbook, too.   

#2. Obviously healthy populations ate this diet for a long period of time & are among the longest living on the planet (Okinawans for example)  

#3. on ad libitum diets like McDougall / PCRM / Broad / WSLF, etc you preserve muscle mass vs keto/low carb where you glycate your muscles to provide the much needed glucose for your brain & red blood cells.  The NIH did the study on this in a metabolic ward & totally invalidates everything these clowns are trying to pull over on you.  I don’t know why they keep beating this embarrassing drum, if you could actually battle nutrition out in court they would all be guilty of fraud

#4. starch based diets have been extensively shown to not raise triglycerides, while simple sugar diets & high fat diets do.  

https://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2003nl/030100putamingelevatedtriglycerides.htm

I can only think of one vegan Dr this stupid & who has been outed as a fraud by major nutrition researchers publicly already.   Anyone can be a vegan & nearly anyone can be a Dr (see Caribbean Medical School) it doesn’t mean they have a clue what they are talking about or actually can hold a candle for a second debating McDougall or Esselstyn much less match their professional record and testimonials and peer reviewed published research.  Don’t fall for morons who are high on their own verbage and can’t pass a basic biochemistry exam.  You can’t cherry pick biochemistry…  

Like im actually curious how those ppl act irl cos i kinda just cringe and move on when i see ugly shipping shit. For example, i was at a cosplay meet before and these 2 ppl were cosplayin legit brother and sister characters and taking ship pictures and i was like uhhhhhhhhhh but tf are u gonna do jump in the middle of a meet and tell them theyre stupid for shipping incest? Idk these ppl so idc man. Im mindin my own business its just stupid cosplay shit

the number one argument i hear being used against romione is ‘they’re not intellectually compatible and hermione wouldn’t be satisfied with ron’s mediocrity’ like ?????????? what books have you read????? where are you getting these ideas?????? why are you dismissing someone’s intelligence just because it’s shown in a different way??????? why are you acting like the only way to be intelligent is academically??????? why?????

like there are so many different ways to be intelligent, just because it’s not shown in an academic sense doesn’t mean it doesn’t count. please stop.

I saw that the reaper76 tag was lacking a BikerAU (or maybe I didn’t search well enough I dunno) and I was like: “WTF where is the BikerAU at?!?!” So having not seen any fanart of that I decided to make some practice drawings. Heavily used google images as reference xD There’s more sketches and even tiny pieces of fics I’m working on. I’m seriously in love with this AU. Also, go listen to Hands by Barns Courtney.

IMAGINE YOUR OTP

Apartment AU! Where Person A and Person B live right next to each other and the walls are very thin…And I mean can-hear-quiet-footsteps-if-you-listen-hard-enough THIN.

So, one evening Person A is playing music at an acceptable volume, but their surrounding neighbours could still hear the music.

They don’t say anything cuz it’s soft enough to be ignored and really they had gotten used ignoring these sounds (sometimes frankly hilarious sounds but embarrassing for that apartment resident)……

……. Except for Person B.

They ignore the god awfull music for a full five minutes before Person B cracks. I mean sure they find Person A cute hot and sexy as hell and they haven’t really talked to them but Person A really needed to get a better taste in music.

Swearing to teach ‘A’ what good music is, Person B plugs in their own iPod to the speakers and starts playing their fav playlist, raising the volume not too loud but loud enough so that Person A gets the message. The rest of the inhabitants raise their eyebrows at this “message” but dismiss it quickly.

Of-fucking-course Person A gets the ‘message’ and is fucking annoyed and decides teach them a lesson, cranking up the volume. Y’all know where this is going. Fangirl!&Shipper!Person C is quietly sqealing dying inside at their antics.

This Game continues for a week during which the other residents are highly amused becuse this drama is fucking better than any fucking reality show Mum. Meanwhile the songs have progressed from annoying the other to slightly flirtatious but still annoying but you’d only catch this if you’ve been paying attention. Consequently, only Person A, Person B and Person C have caught this.

However, whenever Person A and Person B cross each other’s paths, they remain nonchalant and greet each like they hadn’t been figuritively fighting the night before.

It’s Friday and Person C had had a bad day and they just want to rest and break away from the stresses of the week. The music ‘battle’ begins. Person C grumbles but ignores it they best they can because the bad day was’t cuz of them although they annoy their shipper heart to no end

After 15 minutes of obvious fucking music flirting the music wasn’t even that good like they seem to think Person C SNAPS. Their voice rings throughout the two-storeyed flat:

“Would the two of you stop your flirting and just fuck already!”.

Distant laughter can be heard as Person A and Person B scrambles to shut down their respective music systems blushing furiously. A few moments of utter silence and a muffled exclaimation that sounded suspiciously like “fuck it!” was followed by silent knocking.

Needless to say The Music Battle never occured again. It was replaced by quient thumping noises but you already knew that ;)
