taylor's real talk

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…”

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.

It really makes me sick to my stomach when i see people sexualizing Bex.

Like I understand you like her and find her attractive but saying you want to have sex with her or anything sexual regarding Bex is just taking it too far and is very disrespectful. I just wish the people that do this sort of thing would realize that it’s inappropriate and she does not approve of it. She is just a human being and is beautiful inside and out.

Not some sex icon.

OK real talk: Taylor should call TS6 ‘Blue’. The Blue album. It slays. I think Weezer has already one of their albums called like that but whatever.
Imagine that album with the carefree attitude of '1989’ and the emotional intensity of 'Red’. The narrative would be around her relationship with Tom, like she had Jake in mind during the writing process of 'Red’… OK I stop, sorry I got carried away. 😣

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.

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

REAL TALK.
I mean every single day we go online and trust me I love the internet, love it. But every day we go online and we scroll through the highlight of other peoples of other people’s awesome lives. But we don’t see the highlight reel of our awesome lives, all we see is the behind the scenes of our lives. We see every single moment from when we wake up and are like oh god not feeling my hair today, not gonna be a good day today for the hair. You see your doubts, you see your fears, you see your concerns, you’re the only one that’s inside your brain feeling all of your anxieties and the voices that are telling you that you can’t be who you wanna be or that you’re not who you wanna be or that you wanna be more like that other person over there. Let me tell you, people are mean to each other, but no voices are as mean as our own voices are to ourselves. Is it true or is it false? It’s true right?
Okay so if there’s one thing you come away from this night remembering I want it to be this. Every day when you look in the mirror and your mind is telling you all the things you’re not. If those things are, you’re not cool enough, you’re not pretty enough, you’re not popular enough, you’re not successful enough, you’re not special, you’re not wanted, you’re not unique.
Those are not the things you are not, let me tell you the things you are not.
You are not somebody else’s opinion of you. That’s what you’re not. You are not going nowhere just because you are not where you want to be yet.
You are not damaged goods just because you have made mistakes in your life. Those are the things you’re not.  
Let me tell you the things you are. Would you like to hear the things that you are?
You are your own definition of beautiful and worthwhile and no-one else’s definition. You are wiser, stronger and smarter because you made mistakes in your life, not damaged. And lastly, London England, you are someone who is probably standing here tonight going through your own battles, fighting your own ghosts, trying to cover your own scars, stressing about your own stresses but rather then wallowing in them, you got up, you put on an awesome outfit and now we’re all standing here together having the best time of our lives at a concert on a Saturday night. That’s what you are.
I’ve realised that it’s not about being perfect, it’s not about feeling perfect. I think that sometimes it’s just about getting on with things and after a while you look around and realise that you’re happy today, and that’s all the matters. I just want you to know that one thing I have learned in 25 years and I’m still learning is that; if you get rained on, you walk through a bunch of storms, life is constantly coming at you, that doesn’t make you damaged, that makes you clean.

A little bit about Victoria and Taylor’s relationship

First impressions of their relationship is that Taylor just another mean girl within Victoria’s click. A slave to Victoria as her room slate suggests. However the more we see of them the more apparent it is that they are actually pretty close, far more so than say Courtney or other vortex club members.

They’re both hanging out together in Victoria room Tuesday morning while Courtney is sent away to finish Victoria’s homework, indicating that Courtney has a more lackey status than Taylor within their click. Victoria is harsh with Taylor in shower room after finding paint still on her face but this is likely her lashing out due to being witnessed in an embarrassing situation. It’s similar to how even if Max is nice to Victoria and they share a pleasant moment, she will still default to her antagonistic tones the next day at school.

Max’s first conversation with Taylor gives some insight on their relationship from Taylor’s perspective. She’s aware of Victoria’s bossy nature but points out that she supported her while her mother was ill. Throughout all interactions with Taylor she’s very loyal to Victoria, often defending her and giving Victoria a much more human face than the one she presents to Blackwell. Victoria also emails Taylor a few times throughout the game, one reveals Victoria calling Taylor ‘Sweet-T’ which is both cute and super dorky. Taylor is also one of the only characters to use a nickname for Victoria, calling her Vic at the party in episode 4.

So while the public face of their relationship has Victoria in a more dominant role, mostly due to her status at Blackwell, we see and hear that they are actually more equal to each other in private.

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

Real talk: Eliza Taylor deserves an emmy for her perfomance in s3. Especially Lexa’s death scene. It’s so easy for a scene like that to become cringeworthy due to overacting or fall flat because the actress is not good enough to pull it off. But she completely nailed it and it destroys me every time. Usually, I become numb to those types of scenes after a while but her reciting the traveler’s blessing reduces me to tears every damn time.The pure panic in her eyes and heartbreak on her face is so painful to witness but her performance is so magnetising that I just can’t look away. Tears. Rinse. Repeat.

Most critically underrated actress of the year.
