taylor's real talk

Real talk for a second. 

Now, I’ve never been an avid Tumblr user until this blog and my God have I never been so invested in a fandom (both with the actual content and its people), however I have been an observer, so let’s just put that out there. But Power Rangers, yes, Power Rangers, has changed that drastically. I’ve found a home in this fandom and I’d go as far as to say I’ve made a little family along the way.

I’ve always had a habit of joining a fandom too late and not feeling brave enough to approach people and to make friends and share content without abandon, but I somehow managed to join this one at just the right time. However, I doubt there even is a wrong time to join this fandom. Everyone is so inclusive and welcoming and understanding and just lovely

And I firmly believe that is down to the Power Rangers film itself and what it represents. Unity. Inclusivity. Individuality. 

“Different colors! Different kids! Different-colored kids!”

This film was more than just a ‘nostalgia flick’ or another run of the mill action film. It had clear cut story-lines, diverse characters and showed their development (both individually and as a team), it had depth, but most of all, it had representation. You know, that thing that the internet is always complaining that films and TV shows never have? Well, the Power Rangers had it. 

Four out of five of the Rangers were POC, they had a canon autistic character and a canon queer character (both POC; Black and Latina respectively). They had a male Asian superhero lead, the first Indian superhero, the first autistic superhero, the first queer superhero to hit mainstream media, and for the latter two to be POC as well? Do you not know how important that is? 

Let me just repeat that: Do you not know how important that is? And do you know what the internet did when they were finally presented with the representation they are always, always asking for?

They slept on it.

i just wanted to say that i fully believe in ghosts, aliens, and magic

i believe that tarot cards can show the future

i believe in some superstitions 

i believe some dreams can be prophetic 

i believe spells/curses/hexes are real and can work

and i dont talk about it much because a)it’s been made to seem like a joke b)i was repeatedly told by some family members that it’s not real/fake c)it’s something i truly believe in and it’s a huge part of my life and the last thing i want is more people to personally tell me that it’s all in my head

Idk why but I see Trini and Billy as a hardcore Star Wars fans. She freaked out when the Last Jedi trailer was released and immediately sent Billy the link and they constantly talk about their theories.

“How did Kylo Ren survive?? Is Rey a grey Jedi, or do you think she’s just the last one? Do you think Finn’s gonna be okay?”

“Kylo Ren survived because he’s a dick. Finn is going to be completely fine and kill all of the first order, Billy.”

some of the bullshit you may hear and their appropriate reactions.

“i dont really fuck with J Cole”

“Kendrick Lamar aint really that good”

“rihanna is ugly, just look at the size of that forehead…”

“what is Dirty Sprite 2..?”

“Nicki Minaj aint shit!”

“2Chainz is the best rapper today”

“Snoop dogg is old and washed up, i dont really fuck with him”

“Lil Wayne’s got the best lyrics”

“im not a big fan of Watch The Throne, sorry”

i dont really like Usher, im not a big fan of R&B.”

“Gucci Mane aint no TrapGod”

“wait, who is Aaliyah?”

“Taylor Swift can sing”

“drake is such a fuckboy”

“im not a beyonce fan…”

poise-and-grace  asked:

"she's cute fucK"

“karen has lingering feelings for frank” got me thinking what if frank knows that karen has feelings for him, but he can’t he just can’t return the feelings. he’s got his mission. he’s never going to be over maria. so does frank let karen know he knows about her feelings?? because oh man a scene where frank tells karen that he can’t give her want she needs would destroy me. or does he not let karen know he knows? because either way in either of these scenarios there is no happy ending for either of them. karen has feelings for frank and frank can’t do this again. not when maria is on his mind. i don’t think frank will ever recover from her. frank is so in love with maria, he still aches for her. and because he cares about karen, he knows he can’t. i think they will always care of each other. but i just don’t think frank is going to reciprocate. and because frank cares for her, he doesn’t want to hurt her anymore. he’s already pushed her away. karen wants honesty from him. i could be wrong, and i don’t even know what i’m saying but that interview from deborah got me thinking. 

Some of you guys joke,but saying Tristan was gay because he was with Liz is actually really gross and invalidating her identity as a trans woman. It doesn’t matter if she “still has a penis” (this is something I actually saw someone say),she still identifies as a hetero woman. Trans people’s identities should be validated regardless of whether they’ve transitioned fully or how well they “pass” (and that includes not automatically assuming their significant others/sexual partners are queer for being with them) and that was exactly the message the show was trying to convey with those scenes in 5x06.

Real talk though… Sitting on the beach, listening to @taylorswift, thinking about how broken I felt a few years ago (and on some level I’ll always feel that way), to today where I feel like I can breathe again.. While I found that strength from friends and family, I honestly have to thank Taylor because she reminds me constantly that I am not my scars or ghosts or past. She taught me to find strength from within and believe in myself and without her and Clean and her speeches I don’t think I would believe that I was worth it. Feeling really grateful right now and Tay I’ll love you forever and ever for giving that to me. 💛

OMG SO I HAD A DREAM LAST NIGHT THAT I GOT INTO LOFT 89 AND WHEN I GOT IN THERE AFTER THE SHOW THEY HAD ALL OF THESE SODAS FOR US TO DRINK SO NATURALLY I WAS LIKE ‘ooh soda I want some’ BUT I ENDED UP DRINKING LIKE 30 DIET COKES SO WHEN IT WAS FINALLY MY TURN TO MEET TAYLOR I WAS TALKING TO HER AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I BURPED SO LOUD RIGHT IN HER FACE AND SHE JUST STARED AT ME FOR A SECOND AND JUST SAID ‘DUUUUUUDE’ AND GAVE ME A HIGH FIVE AND TOOK OUR PICTURE. RIGHT AFTER THAT I WOKE UP BUT OMG IF THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME I WOULD LITERALLY DIE SO I’M GOING TO STAY AWAY FROM DIET COKE FOR ABOUT FOREVER NOW

OK, but Taylor real talk. When I was little my brother (who was in college at the time) would always tell me and my sister stories claiming he was dating you. We would freak out every time and believe him. So now tell me, do you remember any Jim Henson’s? (I need to know so next time we talk I can call him out and say my friend Taylor never dated you :) taylorswift

You are not entitled to fanfic updates

I don’t want to see anyone bitching that @zenwisterias / @taylordraws  hasn’t posted the next chapter of Heartstrings yet.

The story was originally going to stop at chapter 8 when we were talking about the plot, and because of jerks who were hassling her for how popular the story was (which was stressing her out) - she was gunna wrap it up and you wouldn’t have had anymore.

She decided to write more FOR FUN and because her nice fans were so awesome. Any chapter you get from chapter 9 on is a favor she’s doing you, not something you are owed.  Taylor’s REAL LIFE remains more important. She has a job now that she desperately needed and needs to keep, and she has commissions and original stories and other things she wants to work on. What YOU want her to work on does not matter unless she asks for your preference. 

DO NOT message an author/artist with rude “encouragement” to work on the story you like - it makes you an asshat and it REDUCES motivation to do the thing because who wants to make assholes happy? Fuck off and wait. There are plenty of other fanfics to read in the meantime. 

You want to ENCOURAGE an author to work on a story? Send them messages about how much you liked it, your favorite bit, or draw fan art of the story. But know that doing one of those things does not ENTITLE you to it. They could never update it again and you would not have been wronged, because it is a free thing that they are GIVING to you.

Same goes for @miraculer / @caprette and her fic Boutique, which she has clearly said she has lost motivation for and will probably not be continuing. Sometimes that happens. Deal. You aren’t entitled to shit. If you want new content that badly GO WRITE OR DRAW SOME. If you can’t do that, sit the fuck down and be patient.
