tagging that just for the search engines

Okay, so I get that the hyphen is important but. Why is it important? Why does Peter care? Does he make the distinction just to mess with people???


AO3 Filtering and You!

So I’ve seen a couple people talking about hating to see certain pairings and characters when searching on AO3, and I thought I’d take a moment to teach everyone A Thing I Love To Do. You can absolutely and very very easily filter out pairings and characters when you search for fics!

Step one: Find the tag for the character/pairing you want to filter out.

You’re gonna have to click on it (I’M SORRY I KNOW BUT ONLY FOR A SECOND).

Step two: After clicking on that tag you hate, find the RSS Feed button up on top and click that.

This is gonna bring up a screen full of gibberish. But it’s okay! This is good gibberish.

Step three: In the address bar, find the numbers that appear after tags/

That’s the numerical code that AO3 has attached to that tag.

Step four: Copy that number, then paste it in the search bar with a - in front of it

Step five: Success! Pressing search will remove that tag from the search results.

For best results, save all the tags you hate in a document and copy/paste when needed. You can totally stack these filters as much as you want, just make sure there’s a - in front of each tag code.

But Lady, you ask, how does this work? Well, the AO3 search engine, like every single search engine you will ever use, uses something called boolean searching. Putting that - in front of what you don’t want will tell the search engine “show me everything that fits this criteria, EXCEPT NOT this other criteria”.

The problem with AO3 is, if you search “-Character1/Character2″, it will fail to filter out stories tagged with “Character2/Character1″, or any stories where the tag uses a character’s nickname. But thanks to something that AO3 calls tag wrangling, both of those options will be stored within the same numerical code, so that a search for one will also bring up the other. You can use that in your filtering to ensure that all iterations of that pairing you hate will be removed.

WARNING: this currently only applies to character and pairing tags, and only the tags that have gotten enough fics to have been “wrangled” by AO3 and given a tag code. It also won’t work on stories where the tag has been misspelled.

Since I know you're a fan of stupid theories being debunked: do you have any favorite SSMs or the like that have rendered those theories moot? Or more broadly, any bits of information that you've found particularly intriguing or which challenged any assumptions of yours?

Ummm… hmm. Re crack theory debunking, the first thing that comes to mind is when GRRM said Darkstar is in his late twenties, and therefore very definitely not the real Aegon Targaryen, or Jon’s twin, or any of the weirder identity theories that hovered around him for a while. Oh, and along those lines, the SSM where he cleared up (for people without reading comprehension) that Edric Dayne is 12 and did not nurse from Wylla at the same time the four-years-older Jon did. (And so obviously he isn’t Jon’s twin either. There are wayyy too many Jon twin theories.)

Ooh, and the fact that someone asked GRRM about the Corn Code crack theory and he didn’t do a typical “just wait and see” but actually replied with a straight-up “no” is hilarious. As was the theory creator’s response, OMG.  edit: And @goodqueenaly reminds me that GRRM also said that Rhaegar was cremated, and so is very definitely not still alive and pretending to be someone else.

Intriguing info… ah, gosh, the SSMs are full of really cool stuff. I can’t even quantify it. But some of my favorites, for theory proving and debunking – that Targaryens are not immune to fire (also) (so Jon getting his hand burned does not disprove R+L=J); that Princess Rhaenys looked like a Martell (so Jon looking like a Stark does not disprove R+L=J); and of course “Dany was most like named by her mother, Tyrion by his father, Jon by Ned”. GRRM being ever so careful in his wording is always a joy. :)

Like, oh, his very careful statement about whether Sandor and Sansa would meet again. (And so much more that I have in this tag.) Though when he’s not at all careful, it can be amazing, like when he said the third head of the dragon will not necessarily be a Targaryen. Or when he said all of the Stark children are wargs.

As for challenging my assumptions and theories – probably the biggest one was his “NO” response to when his editor asked if Coldhands was Benjen Stark. That was very annoying, because I really did believe Coldhands was Benjen. (Hell, the GoT guys seem to have said fuck it and gone with that theory anyway, which should tell you a lot about the show and its relationship to the upcoming books, rather.) I don’t think the Waterstones pitch letter actually challenged anything I believed, even though it was extremely revealing about GRRM’s original ideas about ASOIAF – because, like, when people do try to bring up the original plot as proof of something or the other, I respond “so you think Jaime’s going to murder everyone and take the throne, then? And that Tyrion’s going to have a deadly rivalry with Jon over Arya’s love?” because honestly that’s just as valid. :D

Anyway, unfortunately I don’t tag posts with SSMs or interviews (I should, I haven’t, it’s probably too hard to fix now) so I can’t find all of my favorites right now, alas. (My GRRM tag has a lot, but I know not everything.) I very much recommend going to the So Spake Martin archives and reading them all, though, there’s so much good stuff in there. A lot which aren’t picked up by the SSM search engine, too, because they’re links to interviews, and oh man can those interviews be amazing. (Like this one! And this one! And this one! And… ok, I’ll stop now.)

I'm curious about how you find all these shops? I know it's probably a lot of browsing but are there certain sites or places that help you?

I browse Etsy a lot, mostly because it’s a very good search engine and also has a blog where it features a lot of products and shops. You can follow people on Etsy too, and find more products and shops through those accounts by viewing their likes and what not. 

I also look to Instagram quite a bit when looking for indie shops. I pretty much exclusively follow shops on my instagram and just go through their followers/following to find more that I might like. 

Another way is by looking at local markets, or any market really. This doesn’t mean actually attending them (though that is the best way to experience them), but to view them online. Most will have websites showcasing the artists who attend the markets, or you can even go through their pictures on social media where they will usually shout out featured stalls. 

I also look out for magazines that may feature indie artists/shops too! I think there may be websites which can help you search through indie stores, however I haven’t really found any which work for me.

Overall, it’s just about knowing where to look and what keywords to use in search engines. It can take a lot of time, which is why I like to collect all the neat products I find and submissions I get onto this blog! It’s a lot easier than searching through hundreds of links, and I try to keep it as organised as possible, though I do need to update my tags/pages.

If you need anything else, feel free to ask! Hope this helped.

Hi Sam. I hope you or your readers can help me. I've been looking for a specific Stucky fic but can NOT find it again. It's an AU set in Rome. Steve is a reporter and Bucky is the President's runaway son, I think. I've searched AO3 over and over but no luck. :( Can you help me find it?

Hi Anon! I can help you find it, but I’m also going to use your post as a bit of a soapbox in return :D None of this is aimed specifically at you, I’m just using your request as a teaching tool. 

I want to remind everyone that I do not (ordinarily) post fic-finding requests, because that’s not really the purpose of my tumblr and there are other communities for that, as well as posting in tumblr tags with the question. If you contact me under your name I may be able to help you privately but ordinarily, fic-finding requests from anon accounts get deleted. Sorry, it’s just…when I do one like this, generally within a week I get ten more, and I want to actively discourage that. 

The second half of the soapbox is to remind people that AO3 has a very robust search engine and it behooves us to learn how to use it. If you know it’s Steve/Bucky, that it’s in Rome, and that Bucky is the President’s son, you can do stuff like searching AO3 using the Steve/Bucky tag and the word “rome” or “president” in the “any fields” (Rome, being more rare, will be more useful). Entering the steve/bucky tag in the relationship field and entering Rome in the “any fields” at the top turns up 13 fics, which it’s easy to review. 

Sidebar: learning to use AO3′s search engine will help you out a great deal (it meant it took me about two minutes to find your fic, see below) and I encourage you to play around with it. One great way is to take a fic you like and try to find it using various combinations of tags, keywords, and other filters. It will help you learn your way around. Also this is one reason, fic authors, that it is VERY IMPORTANT to properly tag your fic with characters, ships, and canonized trope/kink/AU/fusion tags if they exist. 

In this case I happened to recognize in your summary the plot of the movie Roman Holiday, so I knew it was a Roman Holiday fusion. I was able to enter steve/bucky in the relationship tag to pull up the canonized “James “Bucky” Barnes/Steve Rogers” tag, and I could enter “roman holiday” in the “additional tags” field to bring up the canonized “Alternate Universe - Roman Holiday Fusion” tag and search for both, which turned up just one fic, whose summary definitely describes what you’re looking for. 

The upshot is I believe the fic you want is When In Rome. I hope you enjoy it! :) Thanks for letting me springboard off your question. 


Wtf is with all this anti NaLu shit in the NaLu tag? When I search NaLu, I want to see NaLu. Not a bunch of anti shit of it.

Is tumblr just shit now and lump it all together since it has NaLu in both?

Or is hating on NaLu the new and popular thing since FT is over? I remember a time when it was popular to bash Lisanna. I remember as FT was ending it was SUPER popular to bash on FT. Guess it’s the new flavor of the month.

If it is a tumblr thing, I wish they would fix their damn search engine on the site then.

And before I get a butt load of complaints that I’m hating on anti’s….

You can say whatever you want to say about a ship. I really honestly don’t give a fuck. If you want to waste engery and be in an echo chamber full of hate that’s on you. Not on me.

I just want to be in an echo chamber full of love and support for my favorite OTP ship. And not waste time reading a bunch of anti shit, as I’m sure you don’t want to read a bunch of shit supporting what you dislike/hate.

Just keep your hate/distaste to your self and don’t go around bashing people who honestly support the ship. And people shouldn’t go on to bashing the antis either.

Fuckin tumblr. Wish they would fix this shit.

Guess I’ll move on to my rareship OTP cause there is no hate/anti shit bleeding over into its tag… YET. Though I’m sure it’s all in due time since it’s becoming a thing to hate on BnHA/MHA since FT has ended.

Kacchako/Kacchaco here I come. ❤😍

Dear Followers, all 3,895 of you.

I’m just going to come right out and say it, I’m closing up shop for this blog again. I know this would be the second time I’ve said I’m going on a permanent hiatus, but last time it was for different a reason, this time I’m not likely to pick it up again in the future. Here’s the thing,

I’ve been absent for about a month and a half, this is partly because I’m on vacation, which is why I said posting was going to be spotty for awhile but it’s also because I’ve been doing some thinking. Truth is, I’m losing interest in being active in the fandom. It’s not that I’ve lost interest in Star Wars, or my favorite fictional couple of all time, it’s not that at all. But, I’m finding it’s a chore for me to upkeep the blog by looking for content in the very active community Star Wars has.

When I started, around the end of 2012 it seemed to me that the characters of Anakin and Padme had fans, and loyal ones at that, but they were scattered around the net. My only goal, was to round up all the art I could possibly find for them and showcase it in a way that would show how much love people had for this couple, and the Star Wars prequels in general. I also hoped that when people saw a bunch of fanart for them, they would be inspired to do their own, or be reminded of the prequels again if they had forgotten how much they used to love it.

After a year or so of blogging, like a train engine slowly picking up speed, I witnessed fandom growth, on tumblr and other social media platforms, for GL’s last three SW films and the recent Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated show. Year after year, more activity then the last. This now huge community, became a haven for fans and so many of them happened to be artists. It was a real surprise and delight that appreciation was merging with art. Fan videos, fan-fiction, fanart and just a plethora of things in general were getting uploaded everyday. Content you could find through tag searching was easily buried by new posts pouring in. I can’t say for sure if I helped at all, but numerous blogs sprung up and it was like the voices of those who loved George’s stories, embolden by other around them, decided to shout out their love too. Fans becoming no longer concerned of what geek media said or thought and others just tired of the constant irrational hatred against the movies.

But now that prequel appreciation has reached new heights of activity, the still-recent acquisition of Star Wars by the Disney Corp. is changing the atmosphere, at least in my view. New and different fans are jumping on board because they love what Disney will do with the property. Some fans who love all six films are positive about the future as well. But, personally, I feel the train stops for me here. New episodes or comics etc. may come out for my/our beloved couple, but the era of time I was in love with is kinda over. George is no longer at the forefront of his creation, or even credited by Disney going forward. Unfortunately, Dave Filoni doesn’t have a huge role to play either. I have not watched Rebels, I’ve heard mixed reviews, but honestly, my radar is on Anidala. As expected, their roles are near invisible since one character is dead and the other will always be represented as Darth Vader if Disney shies away from telling prequel-era stories. I guess, truthfully I’m just not interested in what Disney makes if George is gone. 

Now, I have stuck around for awhile, even after the cancellation of SW:TCW because the potential ending of our last source for new content didn’t/doesn’t deter me from fangirling over the pair. I could run this blog for as a long as I wanted, I’ve hoarded so much material. And even if nothing new canonically ever came out again, I would make or find more things to post, if my heart were still in it. Star Wars becoming disneyfied is not something I’m crazy about but this restless feeling I have is actually more about feeling like what I started out to do, has been accomplished.

There is so much love for Ani and Pad’s now, so much for the prequels, and all this acclamation from brand new fans who came in after watching the animated shows. Maybe this growth sensation is a mistaken feeling, depending on you you ask and it’s only an amplification because it’s just easier these days for every fan to be active voices through easy-to-use social media. Regardless, the fan-base definitely feels alive and well. And now, It just no longer feels necessary to prove that A/P are well appreciated. Others have also set out to do the same and I’m so thankful for that. My personality is such that I want to begin new things in areas that seem empty or in need of repair, but when a task is complete, it’s on to the next for me. For these reasons, I realize it’s time for me to move on. It’s also not fair to run a blog dedicated to what I love, with half-hearted enthusiasm.

So, it will be like before. kazaikos.tumblr will remain an archive, not deleted but not updated and my last update will be tomorrow. Heh, I never did get around to posting everything I collected, in fact I do have so much more, but for the past year or so, what I’ve been finding has been coming from tumblr anyways; or other platforms like instagram, facebook and twitter. Before, it was like scouring the net using word and picture searches and finding near-lost art on dead sites. I wanted to save and archive all of it before it was completely lost. Thankfully, with the trend of social media, it’s easier for art to get an audience and remain afloat.

And as to this blog itself, there’s maintenance I would have wished I completed before leaving, such as tighter tag organization but it’s energy I don't have. Hopefully, all my posts are searchable. :P

Please don’t feel the need to say goodbye again, if you already did so back in 2014, I don’t mean to appear wishy-washy, coming back again that time was unexpected but I realized I had a bit more I wanted to do, this time it’s final and hope to gracefully close the curtains. Much, much love to all those who followed and enjoyed the posts. I’ve enjoyed running the blog so much and salute the effort put in by the fans to keep the Anidala fandom vibrant.

You can still message me to this blog if you want, because I will still check my messages. I’m not gone as a fan, just as a blogger for this subject. 

anonymous asked:

I looked for the effects on sealing flames/headcanon on your tumblr and couldn't find it. Care to explain for me?

Oh, I kinda thought they were? I spent a while being frustrated with my tumblr search engine and thinking that I forgot to tag it.

Apparently I had never posted them here, as a post. So when mentioned, they’re referring to what’s written in fic, specifically, ‘Xanxus’ Adventures in Parenthood Piracy’ which is just kinda adorable, rambles and has fluff and plot and Xanxus caring. It’s only on ff.net so far.

It’s also kind of something of a mess as there are a few things that could be trimmed out, explained better and so on. Also on hiatus until more of the New World/Yonko is/are explained because I could world-build in One Piece but another crossover fic of mine there showed how bad I was at that because I lost the plot which was whoops but something I learned from.

So hiatus until I’ve got a more solid grip on the OP-world and can clean it up some. 

Anyway, XAiPP chapter 31 quote broken up by comments:

Xanxus turned the puzzle of how damaged Skies and the like worked together in a sensible fashion. Skies were generally too rare to risk major brainwashing and the like for the sake of science. Even a Sky wasn’t guaranteed to have a child that was also a Sky and it didn’t mean that an unexpected Sky wouldn’t pop up from the mistress’ sheets on occasion either. The Sawada-brat’s Storm Guardian probably had a Sky mother with inactive flames; his father and half-sister were pure Storm.

Skies had to have all the flames and be able to draw them all out equally at once. Generally most managed a rather equal mix, but that didn’t mean that they didn’t have one flame stronger than the rest which is why you had Sunny Skies, Stormy Skies and more. The little bomber was so close to being a Sky it was hilarious, especially if he ever managed to train up the one Flame he couldn’t materialize already. It could be done, but that didn’t mean it would be easy.

(By the last line I mean that Gokudera could learn to use his Cloud Flames on his too-weak-to-manifest Mist Flames so that there’s enough of them to manifest and use. Which means Gokudera could learn to use Sky Flames.

He’d just be like the most pathetic Sky to ever Sky.)

Xanxus did know what a lack flames did; those who had their flames sealed generally suffered a bit of psychological trauma, withdrawal symptoms, general uncoordinated movements and fatigue. It also had the effect of making Skies or Suns stupid, slow to react and sleepy; sealing off the Sun Flame alone was a very bad idea as it important for physical and mental activity. Skies had it worse as all the other flames would be sealed too; Lightning was ambition, Rain for emotional equilibrium, Storm for desire, Cloud for independence and Mist for creativity.

(Xanxus’ definition of ‘a bit of psychological trauma’ is not other people’s. He lives with the Varia so ‘a bit’ might as well be very traumatic.

Some of the last part is kinda sketchy but it is what Xanxus believes, mostly. Lightning is more intellectual desire than Storm’s physical desire which is such a fine difference but still staggering. Rains are generally the most stable people around and by that I mean they don’t change much in terms of personality, because look at Squalo, Colonello and even Yamamoto. Cloud independence is all tied up in pride, honor, duty and the like. Creativity can also be considered freedom of thought. So having none of that is a bad thing.)

Even if the Dying Will Flames weren’t active, they were needed for life and growth or else people wouldn’t have them. Sealing a grown man’s flames was a punishment of unspeakable cruelty as it reduced them to ruins within hours; it was a very effective torture technique especially if they had active flames and weren’t Suns as then they could understand what happened to them, for all the technique wasn’t well known. Doing so to a child was even worse, as the Sawada-brat proved.

A lot of the Sawada-brat’s issues could be laid at the fact that the Ninth sealed his flames so young and he had inadequate emotional and physical support afterwards, as Nono had then promoted Iemitsu as a ‘reward’ for providing the Famiglia with an additional heir. The blond idiot had then all but ceased to spend time with his wife and son, the results of which were horrendous and very obvious for everyone that cared to look.

Xanxus didn’t care about the excuse sputtered out about children not being ready to use Dying Will Flames responsibly; all that told Xanxus was that Nono purposely sealed the Sawada-brat’s flames instead of going through the effort of teaching him how to use them or assigning a tutor. At the time all of Nono’s sons were alive so the whole responsibility bullshit was just a ruse to keep the Sawada-brat from taking over the Vongola due to sharing Primo’s blood as unlike Iemitsu, the kid wasn’t in CEDEF. The Sawada-brat actually had a better claim on the Vongola than Nono’s sons as Ricardo was entrusted the Vongola, and while Ricardo might have been Secondo, he was technically the steward of the Vongola, as were all the Bosses after him. If Nono really believed that children weren’t responsible enough for Dying Will Flames Nono would have protested about the Bovino-brat. He did not.

(Xanxus makes a very good point here about how age, responsibility and so on. Part of this could be influenced by Reborn, but Lambo knows how to use Flames from Future Arc on and there’s no comment about that.

Which makes the ‘to be kept safe’ line of thought even more bullshit. Especially with the effects of sealing Flames. Which is the only excuse available to Nono, really.

Other than say keeping the Vongola in his hands and the hands of his sons. How best to keep power other than make the one who might take it from you, that has the potential to do so powerless? It’s not as if the Vongola need him… with three viable heirs still around and a frozen false claimant in the basement.)

Sawada Nana might be an excellent cook and housekeeper but as a mother… Xanxus thought his mad mother might have been a better one in terms of emotional support and she had been out of her mind half the damn time. Nana’s psych report was nightmare fuel even for the Varia and the cause of a lot of praying on Father Greg’s part; the retired assassin was the one that had examined the housewife. For a retired Sun he was very good at getting people to talk to him and tell him everything. The long-retired assassin monopolized the Varia’s Chapel for the next three days after getting back. Most of the Father’s prayers were thanking God for Reborn’s existence and excellence in assisting the Neo-Primo in recovering from his tortured civilian existence; that Father Greg phrased it that way by itself was telling and damning.

(Nana is often oblivious and far too trusting; she also never asks or pushes the mafia/strangers around the house issue like Haru and Kyoko do in the Future Arc. We also know nothing about her background other than one day she and Iemitsu met, fell in love and she became a house-wife.

It’s all sorts of telling in what’s not shown in the manga despite it spanning a couple of years. She’s shown scolding Tsuna like once and calls him dame-Tsuna to Kyoko’s face. Kyoko in Dying Will Mode tells Nana to take that back but then Reborn knocks them both out with a Leon-hammer and makes them not remember it. That is Nana’s parenting ability and not a good sign at all. If she’s willing to say dame-Tsuna to her son’s visitor/friend aka Kyoko, then what must she say to her neighbors? Her friends? Does Nana even have friends? None that are shown.

Also Nana is just creepy to me, in a way that makes me want to run away from this hollow smiling woman who is all smiles and cheer and not look back.)

In short, the Ninth had probably done more damage directly and indirectly to the Sawada-brat’s life than anyone else; seriously, it might have been kinder had the damn Neo-Primo-brat been physically raped repeatedly than had his flames sealed. The sealing of such flames was trauma enough to count as mental rape anyway. If it had been physical rape, evidence of that could have been gathered, Iemitsu’s brat would have been removed from the home by any half-decent social worker and Tsuna would have had the support of a therapist and a foster family. Japan’s foster system was much nicer than a lot of others out there due to the homogeneity and family-oriented nature of the culture.

He still would have had problems due to being sealed but at least they would have been addressed properly with support, encouragement and therapy instead of having his own mother confirming that he was fucking no-good to his face. Hell, she had never spoke with his school about possible tutoring for his grades or the bullying issues like any other semi-responsible parent would have, which meant that the bullies knew that they had a target that they could do practically anything to without any consequences. The teachers even bullied the brat, which endorsed it. Physical, verbal and emotional bullying was enough but it could easily have escalated to sexual abuse once those middle school brats grew a set of balls. That was a recipe for disaster in the making that Reborn had thankfully headed off. Sexual abuse fucked people up for the rest of their lives; even watching it happen fucked people up as he knew personally.

(The Ninth really screwed over Tsuna. First with the sealing, second with effectively removing a parent full-time, causing Nana to have more issues beyond the usual dissociation with reality. Which she has, at minimum.

Add in Nana and the lack of her doing anything other than keep house and smile… it’s not a good sign of her mental state. She might scold her son but mostly she just feeds and clothes him, instead of teaching him or supporting him. Surely with not having a job she has time to help her son with the basics of school work at home right? Except that doesn’t happen, nor are there mentions of previous tutors or talking to the school.

There’s no mention of her family at all, no mention of her friends, she occasionally does neighborhood things but her life is pretty much empty other than home and her child. Her husband is gone for years on end with only sparse communication and she’s fine with it?

There’s none of what I’d consider to be a normal human interaction with her. Not when her husband is home and has brought back heaps of dirty laundry. When he’s eaten all the food she’s made. When he gives Lambo, I-pin and Fuuta sake. When he disappears after a few days. When he gives terrible lies with a straight face.

Sure this stuff could happen off-screen but we never see any sign of it other than smiles, cheer and lovey-dovey behavior. The scene where Tsuna hears his mother crying late at night when he was younger is either in the anime or is just popular fanon because it doesn’t happen in the manga. The flame-sealing has a semi-basis in the manga as Tsuna remembers the Ninth after the Ninth touches him with a finger; the anime has the actual sealing happen.

In conclusion Nana is creepy because she doesn’t react like a person does; partially because reality what is that?)

Sawada Nana might have been a sweet, kind woman and trusting, loving wife but as a mother… Xanxus knew there were junkies that were better mothers. Abandoning the kid as a baby would have been a kindness. Unfortunately, the Sawada-brat wasn’t and truly believed he was no-good, even after all of Reborn’s subtle brainwashing to negate the worst of the damage. It was why the brat had such an ingrained martyr complex that Reborn had manipulated to make the shithead accept his birthright because this way he could make his life and death more than no-good. For twisting a Sky, you had to use what was already there.

Yeah, so that’s the headcanons of what happens to sealed people in a nutshell. 

There’s all sorts of implications in there if you care to read for them because Xanxus and I share a nasty suspicious mind.

Mystic Messenger High School AU (Fanfic)

Sooo I’ve had this sitting on my computer for a while now and haven’t posted it. I’d like to work on it some more yet, but figured I’d share what I’ve written :P Feedback and ideas more than welcome!

Summary: High school AU, pretty much what’s on the tin. This is just the intro – essentially covers part of MM’s prologue. I might use this setting to write a request or two if I like it enough~ E for everyone, no spoilers. I named the MC Kassi (Kasumi) because this would be really hard to do without a name for her. Enjoy!

Help undo sexism and racism in artificial intelligence with Tumblr tags!

We know the bias where men are “athletes” and women are “female athletes,” men are “writers” and women are “female writers.”

Conversely, women are “nannies” and men are “male nannies.” Women are “nurses” and men are “male nurses.”

Gender stereotypes and beliefs underlie sexist actions and institutions. We need to undo this.

AI bots are crawling the web and learning the same prejudices. Google results show the bias that is being picked up from the content it’s crawling.

What do we do?

On one hand we need to get the companies to address the racism and sexism in their results. The search results you see are already adjusted based on a ton of factors so Google and co. could build in correction for the non-inclusive results. 

But here’s an easy thing you can do right now!

When you tag your posts, “universalize” women and POC. For example, if you are tagging Serena Williams, don’t just tag gender or race-specific tags like “women’s tennis” “female athlete” “women athletes” - while you absolutely can use tags like these to help people find your posts, don’t stop there!

ALSO TAG: “athletes,” “tennis players,” “tennis”, “sports,” etc. 


This will also help in social media search results like on Tumblr.  


sapphire-moon-love  asked:

Is there a master post where I can read your Spy AU? Or do I just look at the tags?

Unfortunately I haven’t done a master post for my spy au since I usually do everything by my phone.

Once my computer is fixed up I’ll make one for you guys! As well as one for my Druid Lance au. Promise!

So for right now, you will have to look through my tags to find them, just go into my Tumblr page and type in ‘spy au’ into my search engine.

We get different variations of this ask all the time and our answer is always the same - check out our slow building romance tag and use our search engine  when looking for specific terms such as UST, sexual tension, etc. (instructions under the ask box here). 

And we get it! We all want to read that fic that keeps teasing and cock blocking Dean and Cas for miles and miles. The thing is, fic reading is a very personal enjoyment. What is hot and sizzling for one fan, can be just lukewarm and frustrating for another. Very often, after we post these kind of YMMV lists, we get anons complaining that we left out their favorite fic. 

So, a mandatory disclaimer: these are our personal choices, the ones that stood out in our minds when asked. Although we do our best, this is subjective and we are sure there’s more great fic out there that we missed - even among the ones we have reviewed!!

Disclaimer out of the way - here are a few you just might enjoy for that delicious (unresolved) sexual tension! We’ve added asterisk to fics that has longer periods of UST.


Yep, I decided to leave y’all on a cliffhanger to do a thing! Albeit not much of a thing right now on the queue, because I’ve been busy today, but it’s a thing!

Specifically, I’m going to draw Creepypasta monsters, of the kind that get relatively few pieces of fanart, complete with a little blurb on their story and what I find neat about ‘em!

I’ll prooooobably collect ‘em in a tag/tagpost because the external links’d nuke ‘em in the search engines otherwise, but this’ll be going on tomorrow too, so I can draw a fair few more.

Feel free to suggest Creepypastas with unique/creative monsters and characters you don’t think get enough love! I may just put ‘em on the drawing list!

i said it in tags but re the gaming ai: imagine an ai that sneaks into your steam and installs ridiculous mods without you realizing. you open skyrim and everyone is naked. the dragons are all thomas the tank engine except also microscopic, so despite the blaring train horns, you have to frantically search in the grass when one attacks, looking for it. left for dead? more like left for DONG every zombie is now just a floating 2d dickbutt

Don't you want to hit ichiruki fans with a book like Jason Bourne did when they bash ichihime, ichihime edits and orihime?

I’m just kidding, lol.

As much as they are being rude and annoying, I would never smack them with a book. Unless that’s how you get antis to understand Bleach isn’t about a romance shounen about only Ichigo and Rukia…then I’d reconsider smacking them with all the Bleach Volumes… (Lol, kidding again).

Every-time I see an anti bashing on Orihime to make her be this “Horrible selfish girl, that has never gotten development, only thinks about Ichigo, has an ugly body with big boobs, is a relevant fail that everyone considers useless” I wonder if they were just watching the anime, reading essays with biased hate, or skipping every scene with her and only noticing what they want.

I think the countless blogs dedicated to bash her are hilarious, just because of their ugly edits, unjustified arguments, and obsession to bring down a innocent fictional character.

Lol, to see people actually like them and agree with them just makes me question how blind are they with their hate toward her to agree with crap like that.

For them bashing Ichihime, its obvious they have their opinion (even though most of their reasons are pretty stupid) . But there is a difference between ignoring the development between two characters, and instead explaining how their relationship is disgusting and gross; not to mention nothing compared to other pairings.

Nonetheless, I never see antis unless I’m using the search engine wrong through my cell or laptop. It’s much easier using #ichihime to see posts actually tagged instead of anything mentioned.

By the way who can hate the relationship between these two cute teenagers acting dorky being acquaintances to maturing into what we see now?

To bash an edit or even a fan-art, is something that I can’t understand (unless they are bashing others/a character, super low move lol). Someone put effort into making that, and it’s kind of revolting when you see someone’s hard effort be told they suck, are delusional, and etc.

I mean their way of expressing hate is unnecessary, unless they subconsciously see Ichihime as a threat or have that much anger toward the ship and fans.

Oh well what can you do?

she basically called out a girl younger than her damn daughter. (Favorited a tweet talking about the klaroline fandom abusing Jomo or some bullshit)

Now that this is all cleared up, I wonder; how did she find that tweet? 

Because neither Joseph Morgan or Persia White were tagged in this tweet. Also, it hardly has any RTs so it can’t have ended up on her TL by accident. Does she just sit down and put his name through the twitter search engine every day?
