dan and phil got a little drunk. they originally got out some Ribena, which is completely unharmful, until dan spotted vodka on the kitchen counter, which they only keep for parties. its almost gone, with a half a bottle left, so dan thought of an idea.

“phil, lets get drunk.” phil looked at dan confused; dan never really likes drinking as much as he used to, hes grown, the satisfaction of being drunk doesnt really thrill as much, and its the same with phil.

“why?” asked phil, sipping his Ribena.

“because why not! we have no meeting tomorrow, we are bored out of our minds, and itll be fun! we’ll even be safe, we can control each other well.” phil thought about it. he never really likes hangovers, who does? he gets them bad, and he knows dan gets them worse, but dan was right, they were extremely bored and had no meetings tomorrow. phil shrugged, and replied with a sure, causing dan to jump up with joy.

dan grabbed the bottle and went to phils room, closing the door, and sitting on his bed. he opens to bottle and pours a lot in his drink, doing the same to phil. there is now many 4 shots full left of the drink and dan was happy he rationed out well.

“wanna do a toast?” asked phil.

“with our vodka filled ribena?” chuckled dan. phil nodded, giggling a little.

“why not?” phil responded, and dan nodded agreeing. they lifted their glass cups up and they look at each other. “to us!”

dan laughed at the cliché, but echoed phil, and a clink noise was heard when the touched glasses. dan downed about half of his drink in that one sip, phil only taking a baby sip.

phil made a face, hating the taste of vodka. dan hid his disgust, looking at phil.

“now we wait.” dan took another sip, already feeling slightly dizzy.

*:・゚✧

dan was fully drunk. he was giggling, putting his head on phil, slurring his words, all of it.

phil was only tipsy. he didnt drink much yet, only about half of his drink. dan, of course, drank all of it, even the rest in the bottle!

“phil!” dan slurred out, and phil glanced over slowly, so he doesnt get dizzy, and raised his eyebrow. “we should do a boyfriend tag.”

phil thought about this. is he that drunk that he doesnt really care if they do one or not? yes. he doesnt really care, its not like itll be posted. phil knows better than that.

“sure.” phil got up to get his camera from the other side of the room, and dan plopped on the bed laughing at who knows what.

it took phil about 2 minutes to set up everything for filming, and an extra 5 minutes to find good goddamn questions.

he finally found some question, a total of twenty. he can barely read them because of his blurry vision, and since he didnt have neither his contacts or glasses on. so he grabbed his glasses from the bed side and put them on to see if itll help. nope. he took another sip of his drink and locked his phone. he’ll cross that bridge when he gets to it. he gets up and turns on the camera, praying to god its in focus.

“dan, its on, we are filming.” once those words left phils mouth, dan shot up from phils bed and looked at phil.

“okay, okay, okay, okay,” he kept repeating that until he finally was next to phil on the bed facing the camera. phil giggled at dan, dan looking at him with his red cheeks.

“okay, ready, babe?” asked phil, seeing double of dan. dan nodded, and smiled at phil and then at the camera.

“okay,” phil breathed in and then ‘took in his persona’.

“hey guys!” he said cheerfully, but all it did is make him dizzy. dan was like, on top of phil, so hes grateful that he was, or phil wouldve fallen over.

“im here with dan.” phil pointed at him, and dan waved, his white oversized cat shirt being exposed, and you could even see his naked legs, since hes wearing shorts. “we are doing the boyfriend tag.” phil said slowly, and dan nodded jumping up and down on the bed.

“phil is my boyfriend! boyfriend phil! philip lester, boyfriend!” he yelled, making phil giggle.

“okay, want ask the questions, or do u want me go ask them?” asked phil to dan.

“ask me the questions! then we will do it back!” dan suggested, and phil nodded encouragingly.

“okay, first question.” phil unlocked his phone and read it very carefully.

“when is my birthday?” he asked. “bonus points for the zodiac sign!”

“january 30th, that makes you a……” he strung out the 'a’ to think. “an Aquarius! aquarium.” he laughed, and phil chuckled.

“correct baby.” he leaned in to kiss dan, and dan kissed him, tasting of vodka and ribena.

“okay, now,” phil was going to go to the next question, but dan protested.

“now do mine! do mine!” dan pouted, crossing his arms.

“june 11th! youre a gemini.” phil stuttered out, making dan laugh.

“lucky guess.” he muttered jokingly.

“next question,” phil scrolled down the page. “where did i grow up?”

“im too drunk for this phil!!” he moaned out. “the north! thats all youre getting.”

“well, youre not wrong.” said phil. “ill give you the point.”

“what about me?” asked dan.

“the south.”

“ugh! exact place!”

“not fair, you didnt do that for me!”

“ugh, whatever.” dan pouted again.

“wipe that pout off your face princess.” phil whispered, grabbing dans chin.

“im just kidding philly!” dan kissed phil, getting him off guard.

“okay, next,” phil asked. “whats my middle name?”

“michael! these are too easy! i want harder ones. test me!” dan groaned out, and phil rolled his eyes.

“okay, okay,” phil said. he scrolled down to another website, which had different questions. “how about this: where was our first date?”

“EASY!” he yelled, throwing his hands up. “well, kinda,” he muttered. “its hard!”

“well, tell me.” phil said suggestively, leaning closer to dan.

“we first met of course at the train station,” he muttered out. “and then we went straight to your house, and, did things. does that count as a first date?” this took him way too long to say, as he was stuttering madly.

“yes, it does. great job, cutie.” phil said happily and leaned in for a kiss.

“okay, let me ask the question!” phil started to give him the phone, but dan refused, saying he wants go make one up.

“whats the first thing you notice about me?” he asked a bashful.

“your smile.” phil said simply. no explanation was needed to make dan feel all warm inside. dan covered his face and leaned on phils shoulder, grinning like mad.

once he got up, he looked at phil, seeing his wonderful, eyes.

“you know what mine is.” he muttered, almost inaudible. it was phils turn to blush. they lean in and kiss once again, but longer than before.

when they pulled apart, dan was seeing actual stars, and couldnt even understand what was happening, completely forgot about the video.

“oh my god, i love you so much.” he said in a shush tone, with phils hand on his cheek. they were only a few inches away from each other, and phil loved it. phil was exploding every inch of dans face, and so was dan. every moment phil made, it made him more dizzy and more dazed, but he didnt care.

within a few moments, they both locked eyes, and somehow, both remembered they were recording.

“uh, one more question,” phil stuttered out, as dan looked around for his almost empty drink. “okay, last question. what is my favorite color?”

“easy, blue.” dan said, as he drank his final sips of his drink before crushed it and threw it.

“hey!” phil protested, looking over at the cup.

“ill pick it ip later, babe.” dan slurred out almost incoherently. “whats mine?”

“easy, pink.” phil mocked. dan smiled softly, putting his arms around phils neck, phil put this hands on dans waist.

“what kind of pink?” he muttered, with his sloppy grin on his face, his curly hair perfect in tack still. (which surprised phil)

“pastel.” dan groaned jokingly, letting his head drop down onto phils shoulders.

“oh my god, i tried to trick you!” dan yelled.

“well, you didnt. 8 years of friendship pays off.” phil joked. dan put his head on phils shoulder, his head facing the camera.

“can we finish? i wanna cuddle with you watch disney movies.” phil chuckled and nodded.

“we’ll finish, lets do the outro.” phil tapped dan, so he can get up from his shoulder, but dan didnt move a muscle, indicating hes not moving.

“okay, well, goodbye everyone, please like a subscribe to me and dans channel, and our gaming channel! love you!” he waved and awkwardly looked at dan.

“i need to turn off that camera baby.” dan groaned and got up from phils shoulder. phil got up and turned off the camera, sitting right on his bed again next to dan.

“can we just cuddle?” phil can tell dan was getting tired, and getting all drained. he gets like this when hes drunk, but also after recording videos.

“of course, princess.” phil laid down, then wrapping his arms around dan who is not next to them. they peacefully fall asleep, with the lights on and phils snoring.

*:・゚✧

it was the morning, and phil is posting his premade video on lessamazingphil, just a quick vlog from florida. its taking surprisingly long to process, since its only 2 minutes, but phil didnt question it. its almost done, so phil went to go see dan, who has the worst hangover ever.

“how are you baby?” asked phil, laying next to dan.

“better, how bad was it?” he asked, and phil laughed.

“you were fine, not as bad as a few months ago, but you were not any better.” dan groaned, and at that moment his phone dinged. he unlocked his phone to see the notification, YouTube popping up, and it was phils new video.

“uh, phil.” dan said.

“yes?” phil hummed.

“you posted the wrong video.”

“what?” phil yelled a little too loudly for dan, as he backed away and gave phil his phone in just one beat.

“i uploaded our drunk boyfriend tag.” dans eyes widen.

“we filmed a video? no way, i dont remember this. did we kiss?”

“i was drunk too!”

“well, i would keep it up.”

“why?”

“we already made this mistake once, lets just let them have what they want.”

So the other day I got this message in my inbox:

“What if ji and ksoo were to see the sexual and erotic stuff you shippers write/post about them? Just imagine how it makes them feel. As two men who are just friends it could make them really uncomfortable and they probably think its disrespectful too smh”

Rather than replying straight to this person and being petty, throwing shade and ready to fight like I usually am….I figured I’d reply with this nice and calm well thought out post since this subject comes up often with Kaisoo and I feel like this possibility needs a bit of exploration. :)

*****DISCLAIMER******: As everyone should know by now, I am a kaisoo supporter and this post is mainly to break down misconceptions in relation to them only. In other words, I am not speaking for other pairings/ships that arent Kaisoo. This is solely my perception and view on this so no shade will be tolerated. I edited this both on my laptop and my phone so idk if the “read more” shyt appeared…dont shoot me. The names of Kaisoo have been abbreviated to eliminate appearing in their respective tags. This post is also not to condone or promote the sharing of sexually explicit forms of shipping directly with the artists involved. (i.e messaging it to them on social media, mailing it to them, shouting things like “how hard does ji f*ck you” to ksoo in person, etcetera etcetera blah blah yada yada)

So, EXO debuted in 2012.

This makes about 4 years since they have been active in the industry.
Kaisoo shippers began noticing their interactions way before EXO’s debut.
Then, this airport photo that was released to the public was one of the first ones that showed how intimate they were with one another:

This pre debut photo was also leaked along with others, some of which were noted to have been much more intimate:

Eerily, these intimate photos vanished after EXO’s debut and are currently nowhere to be found online.

Anyway…moving on. :)


So we know that the kaisoo ship began its first stages of sailing around 2010-late 2011, before EXO’s debut.
Throughout all 4 years of EXO being active, both JI and KS have maintained steady and intimate interactions with one another. There were only two major periods during these 4 years of which the two seemed to be more distant around each other than usual. (There are many theories about this, research more if you’re interested.)

Simultaneously within these 4 years, the kaisoo pairing grew to become one of the longest and most popular pairings in EXO, to the point where it not only became one of EXO’s main pairings but one of the most popular pairings within the Korean idol industry as a whole.

That’s a lot of popularity, right?
I hope you are following along.

“Kaisoo” is what international fans use to refer to “KAI” and “KyungSOO” being paired.
However, in Korea, they are referred to as “KADI”

“KADI” is written as “카디 ” in hangul.
Below is a screencap from an interview for EXO’s 2nd box dvd that included both JI and KS, released in 2015:

As you can see, they both seem to be well informed about their Korean couple name, “Kadi”.

Okay, so what does this mean? Just cuz they know the name doesnt mean they’ve seen what fans draw of them! It should be kept private!

This brings me to my next point.
Again, KADI written in hangul is 카디.
One of Korea’s most popular search engines is “NAVER. It is Korea’s equivalent to GOOGLE in the US. More than 25 million people in South Korea have used NAVER.
NAVER has also collaborated with and sponsored many EXO related things both past and present.

I searched for 카디 in NAVER, and this is what came up:

On almost every page, there were drawings of JI and KS that were intimate and very erotic.

So, this leads me to my final point.


If we look at the timeline and how the kaisoo ship started before debut, it grew to be one of the most popular ships, they both know about their ship name and that erotic images show up when you search their name on NAVER (we could even factor in that JI has had an instagram in the past and that KS has been rumoured to have a private one)…then one could only conclude that the chance of them already having seen and possibly even read what fans have created about them is pretty high.

In short, I know a lot of you want to protect JI and KS and make sure that things like this stay private and out of their reach, but I am 99% sure that its too late for that and they have already seen these things.

I also don’t feel like protection is needed, though, and its because of this reason. If we can conclude that within 4 years they had to have been exposed to “erotic kaisoo fanart/fiction” then we can also conclude that there is a possibility that they aren’t bothered by it too much.

The reason for this once again goes back to the timeline. We know that the kaisoo pairing has been around since 2010. We also know there is a possibility they both knew about their pairing. 

 Hypothetically, lets say that I am and idol and found out that fans were looking at my interactions with another idol and creating sexual imagery out of these reactions and I don’t like it. My first reaction to limit this would be to reduce how much I interact with this person in the public eye. Less touching, less whispering, less laughing and being seen together. Whether fanservice or just normal interaction, if me being shipped with this person made me uncomfortable, the interaction with them would slow down. 

 But Kadi’s interactions with one another didn’t slow down until almost 2 years after debut, which would lead one to come to the conclusion that A.) They are not bothered by being paired with one another, and B.) The reactions slowed down for a reason other than them being uncomfortable with shipping.

I’m pretty sure they’re bothered and just feel like they can’t say anything cuz of SM!!

This is a possibility, but again not very likely. Remember not too long ago when Chanyolk put up that long post on instagram after people found out he started following a specific female idol? And we all know about how vocal Amburr has been lately about ef ex as well. KS was able to politely communicate that he no longer needs gifts from fans, so its safe to say that if shipping him with JI was an issue that would have been conveyed somehow too.

There is also so much evidence from Kaisoo themselves clearly showing how shipping doesnt seem to make them uncomfortable.

We have the sticker set that JI used on his phone. This sticker set was made by and given to him by a fansite:

In this sticker set there were drawings of JI by himself, JI with animals and KS drawings, but not any other member/idol. This also shows that, once again, kaisoo had been shipped by the public for a long time, giving them the likely hood of knowing about it. 

There are  also lots of videos in which you can see both JI and KS smiling at banners of which their ship name had appeared:

And then there is the eery coincidence of JI mentioning that one of his favorite songs was “Montreal” by the weekend, 4 years after it was used in a FMV for a kaisoo fanfic called “Arbitrage”:



Has he read the actual fic? Most likely not. But its possible he may have seen seen the FMV which included clips of him with KS as well.

I want to reiterate agian that this post is not to say that its okay to post sexual works of idol pairings in places that they will see it. Of course it should stay among shippers only. What Im saying is that on a website like tumblr, an idol from south Korea is not likely to see what shippers post and even still, because there are shippers who share things externally and search engines exist…there is the possibility that an idol has already seen what you’re trying to keep from them.


Whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, shipping is and always has been apart of the kpop industry. We know it, the companies know it and idols know it too.


With the internet being such an open way of communicating and sharing things for so many people, its only a matter of time before some nsfw shipping art is leaked on a platform that makes it more accessible to idols. But this is not something that you can blame shipping itself(especially when it is encouraged) or the MAJORITY of shippers for. The majority of us are not sending our NSFW kaisoo art and fics directly to KS and JI themselves. It was even Kaisoo shippers themselves who used our voices to stop the film adaptation of Anterograde Tomorrow in an effort to protect Kaisoo. The majority of us are just talking among ourselves on exclusive and private platforms and sharing our imagination in the form of art.


Every now and then someone may leak things that should have been kept private. But that is an issue for THOSE shippers, not shippers and shipping as a whole. There are good and not so good people in all fandoms, and there is nothing wrong with artistic expression among fans.


So in short, to answer your question…I (clearly) wonder sometimes if Kaisoo has seen what things shippers post about them all the time. I do acknowledge the possibility that they also may have seen these works. I do wonder how it makes them feel, but I also know that they are adults and if they do feel uncomfortable or if they feel its disrespectful they will tell us/show us in their own way and we don’t have to worry about protecting them from things like this. :)

Well, it’s officially been a year since I posted my first series on this blog. I never thought that The City would be the starting point of this journey. And even though the past few months have been extremely difficult, I am so glad to still be here at the end of the day.

It’s hard to fathom that there are now almost 10k of you reading my work or not (many of you just like me as a person and I think that’s great!). I know I probably sound like a broken record at this point but I would not be here without you all. It’s because of you that I am still writing. It’s because of you that I keep finding ways to break your heart (and let’s face it mine) over and over again through my work.

Honestly, I am shocked that y’all are still around after everything I have put my readers through. There have been so many ups and downs in my real life and in my words that I feel like a completely different person than I was a year ago. If I could personally thank each and everyone of you for the love and support you give me, I would. I went through some of the hardest times of my life this past year but you all stuck by me and gave me so much love and support.

This blog may be evolving into something new this year. I know many of you are scared of change, and I am too. But I will always be the same Ramsey. I will always be the same person regardless of what group I am writing for. My love for BTS will never change and nor will I ever stop writing for them.

Thank you for embracing this next chapter. Thank you for one of the best years of my life. Thank you for everything you have given me. I hope I can somehow in some small way give you the same amount of love back,

I would never trade the community we have built together. Because this space is just as much yours as it is mine.

There are some people I want to thank, but I know I will probably be leaving someone out and I am so sorry if I do.

terastormtas  asked:

How do you advertise your cosplays? and how do you start getting hired for cons. I'm looking to branch out with my cosplay work.

Hope you dont mind me answering publicly, I’ve gotten a lot of asks about this recently! 

It’s not so much about adertising as it is algorithms. And luck. At least for the ‘getting my cosplays seen’ thing. 

Theres a lot of luck thats determined by your cosplay quality itself, how recent the series your cosplaying is from, if your the first to cosplay it, and a lot of other stuff I dont even know how to master… hopefully I can help in other ways. 

Most social media run on algorithms of sharing content. For example, only the first 5 tags on tumblr get picked up by the search. Any tags after that are ignored. SO you want to make the first five the most relevent, and the most useful, so your post shows up in those tags. After that make sure to use clerical tags, for your own blogs organization. 

There are TIMES OF DAY to post that vary on each social media platform, and ways to maximize your level of outreach. 

Or another example is that Facebook nukes the promotion of other-app or outside-links. If your sharing from insta or twitter or linking out to a website, facebook purposely doesnt share your post as much. And they prefer image statuses rather then text ones. So always post your info with a photo. LATELY facebook only prefers videos too, cause the company is trying to compete with youtube. Which is why their player doesnt let you leave easy. SO making tutorials and guides and uploading SEPERATELY on fb and then again on youtube is best. Shares are the bread and butter of fb, not likes or comments. 

Then theres sites like ACP, great for getting hired as a cosplayer for events like NISAmerica and Funimation, because they have a long time relationship with ACP. 

DEVIANTART is a dead, dead thing. BUT journalists DONT like linking to things like instagram or tumblr – so they ALWAYS tap from Deviantart. DA has a better landing page for images and people like CosMonde, CosplayCulture, and Kotaku. Or even IGN and CompGamer link back to Deviantart exclusively. 

However… 

Social Media Marketing is a different job then getting hired at cons. I talk about that process HERE. 

Convention guesting isn’t always about the number you have, though it helps in  a capacity. Its about what PROGRAMMING you bring, as a cosplayer. Because you are a solution to filling an event. Not filling an event around YOU. 
They need programming to fill the event guide. 

That being said, once you get thats its SUPER easy to find what you can bring to a con. Maybe you love sewing and can host some sewing patterns. Or maybe your a health nut and can host a Cosplay Fitness panel. Or maybe you can talk about wigs or makeup, or heck, if you know a lot about making Gundum models or collecting Funkos, thats a panel too! There a lot of topics one can cover. Anything you’d like to share or help others with! 

I CAN GO IN DEPTH about both, but its really, a lot, a lot, a loooootttt of information. We actually host a panel on SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING for cosplay, annnnd. a panel on Cosplay Career, guesting and creating a job from cosplay experience. But those are 1 hr long panels. 

So if you want more info, you can always email me! I’ve actually thought about hosting maybe a livestream or online talk about these things. Maybe I can organize one after Anime Expo.

Black Lion Theory (S2 spoilers)

So imma try and keep this short. (I failed)

So, Shiro’s gone. we need a black paladin. The main contenders for it are:
Keith
Shiro returns
Allura
some new character
and Lance.

Keith, while being named by Shiro as his successor on two separate occasions, would not be a good leader. He’s impulsive, reckless and doesn’t think things through. This is what makes him perfect as the Red Paladin, and what makes his character. Plus, he’s had too much bonding with Red this season for her to let him pilot Black.

Shiro returning would be very cheap. I know it’s a kid’s show, but having something this huge happen and it’s just swept under the rug, that’d be a huge let down, not that it’s out of the realm of possibility.

Allura is needed on the castle to use the Teludav and provide support for the Lions and Voltron. She is too important in her current role for her to become the paladin of any lion, especially Black. She already has the weight of the universe and the legacy of her entire race on her shoulders. It would destroy her to burden her further.

A new character is feasible if done well, but there’s not much I can see about it.

Now, Lance. Lance has displayed subtle leadership skills over the course of both seasons, notably in the very first episode on the academy, when he emerged from a coma for the good of his team, in ‘return to the Balmera’, when he acts as a leader in the small group of himself and Keith, coming up with plans, preventing Keith from doing stupid things, and generally taking command. Finally (though I may have missed a couple) in “Crystal Venom” he acts as the voice of reason to Keith and Coran, and brings everyone together to figure out what’s going on. As well as this, he is shown as the glue of Voltron, having brought everyone together in the first episode.
It’s also worth bringing up at this point that he is incredibly insecure in being the Blue Paladin, feeling as if “he doesnt have a thing”. It’s also stated on the website that the Blue Lion is the “friendliest and most accepting of new pilots”

So what does this mean? if Lance becomes the Black Paladin, not only will he need a wardrobe change, but we’ll need a new Blue Paladin. Well, here’s the thing. It’s been shown that (somehow) you only need one person to pilot the ship. Which established’s characters costume is already primarily blue? Who said their lifelong dream was to become a paladin? Who is incredibly friendly, funny, is quite like Lance really, and truly deserves more screentime?? WHO HAS AN INCREDIBLE MOUSTACHE AND IS ALREADY AN INCREDIBLE PILOT???







ALL IM SAYING

cosmog’s fashion shopping guide

ITS ARI!! ive been wanting to share my stores n tips for a while so… here goes. if u want more stuff lmk tho! these rnt all of my links (i left out all of my accessory+bags+jewelry+make-up stores especially so i might make a separate post 4 those) and i can give recs for specific styles/looks/items/budgets/etc bc i have a place(s)…..4 everythinggg

tips:

  • make an amazon wishlist (or a few!) to organize what u want. get the browser extension tht lets u add from websites other than amazon!
  • read reviews and customer feedback if theyre available to u!!! i literally……dont even consider buying something online w/o reading reviews if im unsure tbh. theyre rlly helpful.
  • be wary of buying rly cheap clothes on sites like amazon, sheinside, and choies, theyre often pretty bad quality and not what is advertised. ive been burnt before and trust me its better to get something better quality than to get something u can never wear bc it isnt made right!
  • consider basics first! think abt some pieces that are going to be the lynchpin of your wardrobe. u can pair more out-there pieces w/ them and theyll give your looks more versatility in what u can make!
  • good colors for basics are neutrals and a bit of colors you plan to wear a lot of.
  • thrifting is….so good if ur on a budget and even if ur not!!! u can find so much in thrift stores…..go thrifting
  • dont trust letter sizes. take your bust, waist, and hip measurements, and use every store’s individual size chart!
  • if youre debating between getting something a size smaller or a size larger, always go larger
    if u have a tailor available to u make use of them!! if u have a garment that u love but it doesnt fit u quite right u dont have to send it back!
  • make outfits while u shop! dont just buy pieces by themselves unless its something ur specifically looking for
  • if u have nowhere to start look at a store’s lookbooks, new in, and bestsellers
  • some websites also have features where u can shop the entire look the pictured model is wearing, or looks from their instagram, which i <3 to utilize!!!
  • take inspo from celebrities, instagrammers, and models! a rlly good way to get started is recreating looks uve seen before, esp if u have no idea what youre going for with a new outfit! 
  • i have an outfit curating instagram @stylegrinch and u can also find me on polyvore @solgaleo !
  • speaking of polyvore, its a really cool site for curating items and stuff into outfits!
  • use the extension honey to get huge discounts on most online stores!! it searches for all available coupons for u and stacks them if it can.

key:

  • $ = mass market (forever 21, h&m, etc)
  • $$ = contemporary (urban outfitters, topshop, etc)
  • $$$ = designer (michael kors, etc)
  • $$$$ = haute couture (versace, oscar de la renta, etc)
  • favorites are italicized! 

price marks are dependent on what is being sold; a price mark for a store selling glasses for $100 will be different than a store selling a romper for $100.

Dan and Phil's boyfriend tag drunk video fanfic

dan and phil got a little drunk. they originally got out some Ribena, which is completely unharmful, until dan spotted vodka on the kitchen counter, which they only keep for parties. its almost gone, with a half a bottle left, so dan thought of an idea.
“phil, lets get drunk.” phil looked at dan confused; dan never really likes drinking as much as he used to, hes grown, the satisfaction of being drunk doesnt really thrill as much, and its the same with phil.
“why?” asked phil, sipping his Ribena.
“because why not! we have no meeting tomorrow, we are bored out of our minds, and itll be fun! we’ll even be safe, we can control each other well.” phil thought about it. he never really likes hangovers, who does? he gets them bad, and he knows dan gets them worse, but dan was right, they were extremely bored and had no meetings tomorrow. phil shrugged, and replied with a sure, causing dan to jump up with joy.
dan grabbed the bottle and went to phils room, closing the door, and sitting on his bed. he opens to bottle and pours a lot in his drink, doing the same to phil. there is now many 4 shots full left of the drink and dan was happy he rationed out well.
“wanna do a toast?” asked phil.
“with our vodka filled ribena?” chuckled dan. phil nodded, giggling a little.
“why not?” phil responded, and dan nodded agreeing. they lifted their glass cups up and they look at each other. “to us!”
dan laughed at the cliché, but echoed phil, and a clink noise was heard when the touched glasses. dan downed about half of his drink in that one sip, phil only taking a baby sip.
phil made a face, hating the taste of vodka. dan hid his disgust, looking at phil.
“now we wait.” dan took another sip, already feeling slightly dizzy.
*:・゚✧
dan was fully drunk. he was giggling, putting his head on phil, slurring his words, all of it.
phil was only tipsy. he didnt drink much yet, only about half of his drink. dan, of course, drank all of it, even the rest in the bottle!
“phil!” dan slurred out, and phil glanced over slowly, so he doesnt get dizzy, and raised his eyebrow. “we should do a boyfriend tag.”
phil thought about this. is he that drunk that he doesnt really care if they do one or not? yes. he doesnt really care, its not like itll be posted. phil knows better than that.
“sure.” phil got up to get his camera from the other side of the room, and dan plopped on the bed laughing at who knows what.
it took phil about 2 minutes to set up everything for filming, and an extra 5 minutes to find good goddamn questions.
he finally found some question, a total of twenty. he can barely read them because of his blurry vision, and since he didnt have neither his contacts or glasses on. so he grabbed his glasses from the bed side and put them on to see if itll help. nope. he took another sip of his drink and locked his phone. he’ll cross that bridge when he gets to it. he gets up and turns on the camera, praying to god its in focus.
“dan, its on, we are filming.” once those words left phils mouth, dan shot up from phils bed and looked at phil.
“okay, okay, okay, okay,” he kept repeating that until he finally was next to phil on the bed facing the camera. phil giggled at dan, dan looking at him with his red cheeks.
“okay, ready, babe?” asked phil, seeing double of dan. dan nodded, and smiled at phil and then at the camera.
“okay,” phil breathed in and then ‘took in his persona’.
“hey guys!” he said cheerfully, but all it did is make him dizzy. dan was like, on top of phil, so hes grateful that he was, or phil wouldve fallen over.
“im here with dan.” phil pointed at him, and dan waved, his white oversized cat shirt being exposed, and you could even see his naked legs, since hes wearing shorts. “we are doing the boyfriend tag.” phil said slowly, and dan nodded jumping up and down on the bed.
“phil is my boyfriend! boyfriend phil! philip lester, boyfriend!” he yelled, making phil giggle.
“okay, want ask the questions, or do u want me go ask them?” asked phil to dan.
“ask me the questions! then we will do it back!” dan suggested, and phil nodded encouragingly.
“okay, first question.” phil unlocked his phone and read it very carefully.
“when is my birthday?” he asked. “bonus points for the zodiac sign!”
“january 30th, that makes you a……” he strung out the ‘a’ to think. “an Aquarius! aquarium.” he laughed, and phil chuckled.
“correct baby.” he leaned in to kiss dan, and dan kissed him, tasting of vodka and ribena.
“okay, now,” phil was going to go to the next question, but dan protested.
“now do mine! do mine!” dan pouted, crossing his arms.
“june 11th! youre a gemini.” phil stuttered out, making dan laugh.
“lucky guess.” he muttered jokingly.
“next question,” phil scrolled down the page. “where did i grow up?”
“im too drunk for this phil!!” he moaned out. “the north! thats all youre getting.”
“well, youre not wrong.” said phil. “ill give you the point.”
“what about me?” asked dan.
“the south.”
“ugh! exact place!”
“not fair, you didnt do that for me!”
“ugh, whatever.” dan pouted again.
“wipe that pout off your face princess.” phil whispered, grabbing dans chin.
“im just kidding philly!” dan kissed phil, getting him off guard.
“okay, next,” phil asked. “whats my middle name?”
“michael! these are too easy! i want harder ones. test me!” dan groaned out, and phil rolled his eyes.
“okay, okay,” phil said. he scrolled down to another website, which had different questions. “how about this: where was our first date?”
“EASY!” he yelled, throwing his hands up. “well, kinda,” he muttered. “its hard!”
“well, tell me.” phil said suggestively, leaning closer to dan.
“we first met of course at the train station,” he muttered out. “and then we went straight to your house, and, did things. does that count as a first date?” this took him way too long to say, as he was stuttering madly.
“yes, it does. great job, cutie.” phil said happily and leaned in for a kiss.
“okay, let me ask the question!” phil started to give him the phone, but dan refused, saying he wants go make one up.
“whats the first thing you notice about me?” he asked a bashful.
“your smile.” phil said simply. no explanation was needed to make dan feel all warm inside. dan covered his face and leaned on phils shoulder, grinning like mad.
once he got up, he looked at phil, seeing his wonderful, eyes.
“you know what mine is.” he muttered, almost inaudible. it was phils turn to blush. they lean in and kiss once again, but longer than before.
when they pulled apart, dan was seeing actual stars, and couldnt even understand what was happening, completely forgot about the video.
“oh my god, i love you so much.” he said in a shush tone, with phils hand on his cheek. they were only a few inches away from each other, and phil loved it. phil was exploding every inch of dans face, and so was dan. every moment phil made, it made him more dizzy and more dazed, but he didnt care.
within a few moments, they both locked eyes, and somehow, both remembered they were recording.
“uh, one more question,” phil stuttered out, as dan looked around for his almost empty drink. “okay, last question. what is my favorite color?”
“easy, blue.” dan said, as he drank his final sips of his drink before crushed it and threw it.
“hey!” phil protested, looking over at the cup.
“ill pick it ip later, babe.” dan slurred out almost incoherently. “whats mine?”
“easy, pink.” phil mocked. dan smiled softly, putting his arms around phils neck, phil put this hands on dans waist.
“what kind of pink?” he muttered, with his sloppy grin on his face, his curly hair perfect in tack still. (which surprised phil)
“pastel.” dan groaned jokingly, letting his head drop down onto phils shoulders.
“oh my god, i tried to trick you!” dan yelled.
“well, you didnt. 8 years of friendship pays off.” phil joked. dan put his head on phils shoulder, his head facing the camera.
“can we finish? i wanna cuddle with you watch disney movies.” phil chuckled and nodded.
“we’ll finish, lets do the outro.” phil tapped dan, so he can get up from his shoulder, but dan didnt move a muscle, indicating hes not moving.
“okay, well, goodbye everyone, please like a subscribe to me and dans channel, and our gaming channel! love you!” he waved and awkwardly looked at dan.
“i need to turn off that camera baby.” dan groaned and got up from phils shoulder. phil got up and turned off the camera, sitting right on his bed again next to dan.
“can we just cuddle?” phil can tell dan was getting tired, and getting all drained. he gets like this when hes drunk, but also after recording videos.
“of course, princess.” phil laid down, then wrapping his arms around dan who is not next to them. they peacefully fall asleep, with the lights on and phils snoring.
*:・゚✧
it was the morning, and phil is posting his premade video on lessamazingphil, just a quick vlog from florida. its taking surprisingly long to process, since its only 2 minutes, but phil didnt question it. its almost done, so phil went to go see dan, who has the worst hangover ever.
“how are you baby?” asked phil, laying next to dan.
“better, how bad was it?” he asked, and phil laughed.
“you were fine, not as bad as a few months ago, but you were not any better.” dan groaned, and at that moment his phone dinged. he unlocked his phone to see the notification, YouTube popping up, and it was phils new video.
“uh, phil.” dan said.
“yes?” phil hummed.
“you posted the wrong video.”
“what?” phil yelled a little too loudly for dan, as he backed away and gave phil his phone in just one beat.
“i uploaded our drunk boyfriend tag.” dans eyes widen.
“we filmed a video? no way, i dont remember this. did we kiss?”
“i was drunk too!”
“well, i would keep it up.”
“why?”
“we already made this mistake once, lets just let them have what they want.”

so im kinda new, and i dont get it... what happened between Brendon and Ryan and why is Brendon butthurt??

WAH. 98GEP89RYG98SER9 THATS ONE OF MY FAVORITE TOPICS AND THE MORE SENSITIVE AS WELL.

Well, I dont wanna start talking about Ryden, BUT I WILL. You know that a lot of people (including me) ship Ryden like A LOT, and swear to god that they were hooking up (see, im not using the word love, i said hooking), but another part just afirm that Ryan Ross didnt love Brendon Urie as Brendon Urie loved him or started to falling in love for him. YAS. Well, I dont know if you are in to Ryden but  I will give you a WHOLE masterpost about it:
http://whisperdlullaby.livejournal.com/9051.html

(read it, like SERIOUSLY, its a lot of information).

A lot of people think Ryan was very confused about his life in the end of the A Fever Era and Keltie Colleen (his ex fiancee) was there too.

Well, well, butthurt stuff.

When you watch the Pretty. ODD. DVD you can see the music producer sayin that “one of the hardest parts was picking which part Brendon would sing and which Ryan would sing” then the camera cuts to their faces, they are not happy about it. Months after, P!ATD got split in two.

Some people of the fanbase just PICK a side, or you were going with Brendon Urie or with Ryan Ross. Well, Jon and Ryan get HELLA MAD because they thought Brendon and Spencer would change P!ATD’s name and start again with a new band like them, but well, they didnt because people knooow them. And well, the problem starts there.

They stopped talking for a longe time, when Brendon and Ryan acidentally met at a restaurant? I dont know, maybe a shopping, AND:

THIS PICTURE CAME OUT, SHANE VALDES TOOK IT. MY HEART EXPLODED AND I CRIED A LOT.

Well, after that, they keep saying that “oh, they are still friends blablablablabl a lot of shit” but then Brendon gave a interview for a radiostation saying that when they split, Brendon and Spencer where like “WELL, FUCK THOSE GUYS” but P!ATD still promoting The Young Veins new songs on their website. Welll… butthurt!

Then, Ryan and Jon started being hella aloof about P!ATD on twitter and interviews, Jon even said that Brendon and Spencer had no talent in a magazine interview, then, he apologized on the internet, saying that “they should keep going with their lifes and forget the past”.

When, The Young Veins didnt work out and time passed, Brendon said he had lunch with Ryan Ross and they were in the same events (but not talking or together) in pictures.

Last year Brendon gave an interview IN MY OPINION FULL OF BULLSHIT AND BUTTHURT STUFF, saying that “Ryan Ross didnt let him do stuff and be free, so he get very sad and thought he couldnt do stuff, and that now he could be free” look, im not saying Ryan Ross wasnt controlling P!ATD, because everyone knows he was the head of the band, writing the first two CDS almost all by himself, but Brendon was acting like his life was awful. And then, he said that “Ryan didnt let him sing and he got very upset about it because HE WAS THE LEAD SINGER AND IT WAS HIS JOB! HE WASNT DOING IT WELL?” I know, very childish of Brendon, because Ryan just wanted to sing some songs and parts and JUST IT, songs HE WROTE. How the fuck you get upset with someone who let you be the voice of his feelings and then ask you just to sing a few songs because its his feeling? LIKE, WHAT THE FUCK BRENDON.

Well, now we are here. We dont know if they talk, some people say that Ryan Ross want to do something, like a song with P!ATD while P!ATD keep struggling to find a regular guitarist since Ryan Ross left. 

AH, we cANT forget that Brendon Urie used to cry on the verse “but melt your headaches and call it home” because Ryan told him to give A LOT of attention to this part, like Brendon wrote it.

And he cried, since Ryan left.

He also wrote “Hurricane” for Ryan and, according to the fanbase, almost every Vices & Virtues song.

I think they miss being a parte of a thing, (im not saying like a couple, but brendon also came out as bisexual last year), but, doing music and not in this limbo of butthurt stuff.

I love them a lot, Im rooting for them… A LOT.

AND IF PEOPLE IN THIS FUCKING FANBASE KEEP TALKING SHIT ABOUT RYAN ROSS I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL RIP YOUR LUNGS OFF AND YOU ARENT GOING TO SING SONGS ANYMORE BECAUSE RYAN ROSS IS A GOOD PERSON WHO FOUGHT FUCKING A LOT FOR HIS DREAMS (JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE BAND) AND MADE PETE WENTZ PICK THEM AND WORKED HARD WITH THE REST OF THE BAND TO MAKE A NAME FOR THEM AND DUMPED COLLEGE AND STUFF AND JUST FUCKING FOUGHT FOR IT AND IM VERY PROUD, HE IS A GREAT MAN.

ALSO, IF PEOPLE THINK HE IS “THE BAD GUY” JUST THINK ABOUT HIS LIVEJOURNAL WHEN HE WAS FUCKING SAD BECAUSE HE BOUGHT A GIFT FOR HIS MOM AND SAID HE WAS SURE THAT “IT WAS GOING TO TURN INTO A PILE OF DUST” BECAUSE SHE DOESNT GIVE TWO SHITS ABOUT HIM. HE IS A PERSON, HE GETS SAD, LEAVE HIM THE FUCK ALONE OR I WILL KILL YOU BECAUSE HE IS A GOOD PERSON. HE INVITED FANS TO THE BAR AS A MEET AND GREET AFTER THE YOUNG VEINS SHOWS AND

WHOA HE SAID IN A INTERVIEW WITH PANIC! THAT HE GOT SAD WHEN THE FANS CREW GOT BIG AND HE COULDNT SIGN STUFF FOR EVERYBODY EVEN IF HE WAS THERE TWO HOURS AFTER THE SHOW.

IM SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME

anonymous asked:

why do you antis harrass amy so much ? what has she done ? just fck off .. just cause she has different opinions from you guys doesnt mean yall have to say sht

She’s literally created half a dozen different deliberately high profile websites in order to harass numerous people around Louis and Louis himself.

http://thelarrative.tumblr.com/tagged/lesbianslovelouis

She seeks to make her abuse high profile, she has paid money to make sure that they hit google results, she spoke to Harvey Levin on TMZ in a method she claimed was “taking one for the team” by letting the world know all about her harassment of Briana and her family. You all deserve to be called out. If it makes you feel shitty for everyone else who isn’t in your bubble to talk about how embarrassing and ridiculous you all are, good. She’s in her 40s. She’s not a child. She claims to believe a baby is being faked yet is profiting from it and from you using ads or promo on most of those websites. You all deserve to be called out.

You’re bullies and you’re all old enough to know that.

I hope I'm not being rude when I say this or that I don't think your criticism doesn't have value (bc i think victor should have retired), but I think that some themes and things in YOI are focused more in an Eastern perspective rather than a Westerner one?? Yuri himself has stated that his theme on love is abstract... idk

this isnt rude! however, i wholeheartedly disagree

(ive also seen this come up a lot as a reason for no “i love you” scenes, for why the kiss wasnt shown directly, & sorta thrown around as a general “ppl dont understand yoi for REAL!!!” so im happy to have a reason to address it.)

ive mentioned this a few times, but i study sociology & psychology! so i def get the idea of where ppl are coming from in regards to cultural norms/POVs, and japan is def super different from the USA (which is where im from) or other western cultures

however, before “cultural differences” is tossed around as a blanket justification, its important to understand the culture in question, the background cultures of the characters, and put yoi into context of not just japan, but of japanese anime. &, honestly, in context of yoi itself (more on that later)!

so lemme address the cultures in general, and then apply it to yuri on ice.

livinclean4me  asked:

ive gotten to meet people recently who only use ASL. My high school took it out before I was old enough and until now I felt like id just missed the opportunity. I need to save for formal classes but is there any information or way to learn basics before then? or is the formal classes the only way to go. Just looking for information from someone who knows ASL. Thanks

HUh! well this is a fun ask; let me get it out of the way though, that I am just a student. I’m no professional but sometimes taking it from another fellow learner has its own special qualities.

**NOTE! if there is any of you who think I’ve made a mistake or left something important out, please add to this post!***

I really RECOMMEND learning ASL from a professional class. Because the curriculum that i learned was a good balance of learning vocabulary and accent steps, to the culture, slang, grammar  and personality of the culture as the whole. You CAN study these on your own though! the books I read in ASL were:

For Hearing People Only by Matt Scott Moore – a guide to commonly asked questions to Deaf lifestyle and culture

A Deaf Adult Speaks Out by Leo M. Jacobs – deaf culture and history 

Also, there is this Deaf magazine subscription you can look into buying. I lent all mine from my teacher but who knows! Maybe you might get really into it and want to know everything thats bumping in the ASL community. Its called NAD mag 

You might find these an interesting read, but if you are more like me; who’s bad about reading anything thats not about cool dragons; a class would definitely help you read and digest these in manageable chunks. Its almost GUARANTEED that if you take up a beginners corse in ASL you’re going to run into these two books. 

If you can not learn in the class for the time being, try to find some one who’s proficient in ASL enough to maybe teach you a little! Couldn’t hurt. I mean it might be hard to just MAKE  a friend that knows ASL, but it could give you good practice! 

If you REALLY CANT WAIT TO LEARN SOME SIGNS. Well; there are TONS of sign language sights. You have to be careful using the internet, because not all of it is American Sign Language; ASL is not universal and there are multiple different types of signing styles, mostly all of which are hearing condoned and the Deaf community finds is patronizing or limiting to their potential vocabulary. Though don’t look down on anyone who uses them. (i.e. S.E.E., L.O.V.E., Baby sign, etc…) I find the most reliable source of my words come from this dictionary  There are some words you wont be able to find, which is normal, I like signingsavvy the most. Its reliable and certified by my teacher to be a good website. 

So yeah! those are some good self reliant sources of what you can learn by your own. Don’t be over whelmed, its all really interesting stuff! I still recommend you take up a class or learn from a person who understands and/or has been apart of the ASL community for some while. I put some fingerspelling tips down below as that needs little instruction and I really encourage you to try it out! Thanks for asking!

——–

One thing that takes almost NO pro pointers is fingerspelling! If you wanna get into sign language, practice your alphabet. get GOOD. cause it is one of the first skills you learn and one of the most challenging (reading it is the hard part). I like this chart the most because it doesnt represent letters like C,K,P,Q, and X as sideways (they are to face forward) It is an easy and very important skill to learn. I’ve found it to be a good nervous tick when i need something to do with my hands. Plus you never know when you might come in contact with someone who needs you to communicate with them via basic FS! Here are some pointers:

  • When fingerspelling, keep your arm up at shoulder level. You shouldnt feel pain or struggle to keep your arm up, just prop it up with your palm facing outward. When you sign each letter do not bounce when trying to form each letter, it makes it hard for the reader to understand what youre trying to spell. 
  • Fingerspell with ONE hand only. Your dominate hand (right handed, or left handed.) Your dominate hand is important to anchor both your finger spelling and dominate movements in signs, so dont switch between them or it will look sloppy. 
  • Make sure that you do appropriate hand stretches as to not over work your wrist. Youre hands are important for signing! and fingerspelling wears them out good. so make sure to stretch often– make it a frequent habit!
  • Acronyms (such as A.S.L.) have to be signed in a circle. I sign them counter clockwise from my own perspective. I HAVE seen people sign it by moving each individual letter in a tight, small circle. You’ll find that there are different styles of signing all around. 
  • If you are fingerspelling a phrase make sure to pause briefly between each word imaginehowbullshititwouldbeifyouhadtoreadthiswholethinglikethis. same thing. 
  • When you fingerspell a long word or maybe a phrase sign and move your hand sideways, kinda like a typewriter! Do not move out forward, or inward, or to the opposite direction of your dominate hand. You should never feel pain or stress in your hand/arm when fingerspelling, so dont over do it and end up with your arm across the room at the end of your word/phrase! 
  • Double letters such as in “school” or “glass” can be signed by just resigning it with a small squeeze like S-C-H-O-O-L. Or, I HAVE seen when you just drag sideways it very shortly like S-C-H-(OO)-L. if that make sense. 
  • Learning how to fingerspell is the easy part, the hard part is learning how to read it! Heres a good website that can help you practice your FS receptive skills.
  • Same creators of asl.ms listed above made an app! Its extremely helpful and i recommend doing it when you are waiting in line for something or just have some time to kill. Its helped me so much. It costs money, but I found it was well worth it. (itunes link) it says on asl.ms that android version is available as well. 

Thats about all the tips I know. Good luck! If any of you ASL students or Deaf members of the community would like to add anything for those looking into getting into Sign Language please add to this post!

anonymous asked:

What if the PokeAni characters had Tumblr accounts?

Ash Ketchum: Random blog, doesnt tag anything. Reblogs gifs and videos of funny Pokemon and plenty of battle matches. Mostly uses tumblr mobile since he’s always on the move and occasionally blogs about his travels

Misty: Makes posts about her Gym challengers and whatever she catches when she goes fishing. Is a bit environmentally conscious to, and will try to encourage her followers to reblog (Save the Wailords). Seldom uses tumblr overall.

Tracey: ART BLOG. Makes posts, reblogs and talks about his art almost all the time. He’s a bit shy about it at first but becomes more confident the more his followers praise his great art. Will also make posts sometimes about his work on the Oak Ranch.

Brock: Half breeding tips, half acting as if tumblr is a dating website. It doesnt work most part and his mutuals (specifically Misty) will always poke fun at him when he tries (such as trying to post handsome selfies). But when he’s not doing that he’s generally seen as one of the more knowledgable Breeder Blogs on tumblr and he tends to get a lot of asks pertaining to how to raise and care for their Pokemon, which he’s always happy to help out with.

May: Follows a lot of Coordinator blogs, always wanting to be up to date on what’s going on in the Contest Circuit. Also reblogs a lot of picture of delicious food. Her personal post have her blogging about her day to day activities as *May’s Expeditions* wether it’s feeding/playing with her Pokemon, going for a walk, annoying her brother, etc. She also pretty much likes everything Zoey and Dawn post.

Max: Still to young to use tumblr (according to May), sorry Max.

Drew: Not terribly into tumblr, but did eventually get one with May’s encouragement. Occasionally will reblog Coordinator videos and give his critique in the tag (often rather harsh criticism)

Harley: Super fucking NSFW. None of the others follow him (and those that did learned pretty quickly).

Dawn: FASHION BLOG. She uses tumblr as a platform for showing off her fashion designs and concepts, some modeled by her and most by her Pokemon. And of course is also still filled Contests related things. She makes posts about the thought process behind some of her combinations. She and Serena are pretty close tumblr mutuals. She’s also one of the only ones who has queue,

Zoey:  A pretty no nonsense blog. Unless her friends encourage it she will usually post pretty standard pictures and never be too crazy. Will reblog contest articles and will be that type of person who, if she sees a misinformed post with a crazy amount of reblogs, will set the facts straight and give the real explanation (in the Coordinator world this happens more often then not), she really can’t stand false, baseless rumors that are widley accepted as fact.

Paul: No posts, no reblogs, generic theme and the only description it has is “Paul”. Only made it because Reggie told him to.

Iris: Very rarely uses tumblr. She’s away from an internet connection so often and when she does post they often have no context and it sometimes worries people (“rode a wild Tauros, it was fun”). She will post a photo or two every couple of weeks to let people know she’s still alive.

Cilan: One of May’s favorite blogs, mostly because half of it consist of his Cooking tips. The other half is his Connoisseur persona, frequently writing up posts and articles on the best ways to find and recognize a Pokemon that’s good for you. He quickly becomes one of the top blog to ask for Pokemon/Trainer compatibility and gets plenty of ask pertaining to his Connoisseur skills (Burgundy hates this because she never gets any asks like that).

Burgundy: Created a tumblr because she heard that Cilan had one, frequently sends him anon hate that he either replies to politely or deletes. When she’s not doing that she’s usually offering critiques of other people’s Pokemon (that they didnt ask for).

Georgia: Posts several rants about Dragon type Pokemon, get her fair share of anon hate as a result (she more then happily responds to all of them with snide or condescending remarks). Goes through each one of them and gives tips and ideas on their weaknesses and how to take them down in the quickest most efficient way. Some of them go into comedy (think Smogon’s descriptions for Deliberd and Luvdisc)

Serena: Lots of baking tips, makes a lot post pertaining to what kinds of Pokepuffs would be good for specific types of Pokemon. She also tries her hand at Poffins and Pokeblock with a b it less success at first, but May and Dawn help her out and give her advice and she’s able to learn pretty quickly. Loves posting pictures of the many designs she incorporates in her puffs. Other then that she makes several Pokevision videos with her Pokemon whenever she has free time and they tend to get a lot of notes.

Bonnie: Also to young but she doesnt care. Her blog consist primarily of videos, pictures, and gifs of cute Pokemon. Also doesnt tag anything but will always reply to said posts with all caps “OH THAT RUFFLET IS SUCH A CUTIE IM GONNA ASK BRO IF I CAN HAVE ONE!!1”

Clemont: As expected, he has a very sciencey blog. Will reblog a lot of tech/invention/science related videos and posts and will gush about them in the tags. He also posts about his own progress with his inventions, going into super exhaustive explanations on how they’re made (it’s times like these where his mutuals wish he would be more generous with the “read more” function).

ATTENTION POC that are into fitness and/or health. I made a post recently talking about the lack of representation I see of us in the fitness community. As I said in the post i will not make claims as to why that is, but I’d like to figure out ways to give us more recognition. Its become very clear that I’m not the only one who feels this way, so I’m coming up with ideas to provide us with a space to uplift each other on our health & fitness journeys and show support. One of these is a way that most people use to raise awareness of any sort, and thats through a hashtag. I decided on #fitnessincolor after trying to find a tag that wasnt already heavily occupied with random shit and failing numerous times. Im also not crazy creative when it comes to names and all that so just accept it lol. The tag appears to already have content regarding POC and fitness, more so on IG than tumblr so at least its still relevant. The only way we’ll see a shift in our representation and accessibility to others is if we do it together. The hashtag is a way to support this. Instead of searching high and low to find very few blogs we can simply tag our photos and posts as #fitnessincolor and let ppl find each other. What I’d like to do is come up with some masterpost (or multiple posts - details figured out later) of different blogs ran by POC that can cater to different health goals. This is not a space that will be strictly about lifting or even working out in general. If you live a healthy lifestyle through food and/or personal choices then this is for you as well. It also isnt limited to those that look like your conventional fit, because as we know thin and/or muscular is not the only fit out there. So all shapes and sizes will be supported, and all journeys are welcome….whether youre just starting or are almost at your goal. But the only way we can make this work is if the hashtag is used on posts. To help make the masterpost happen I ask for yall to message me, be it through an ask or fanmail, telling me what you do (lift, yoga, cross fit, etc), the type of diet you have (vegan, vegetarian, etc), and your racial background (this is optional but some people like to follow ppl of similar backgrounds). Im asking for this information so i can place blogs into categories, because not everyone may be interested in weight lifting but some may be interested in something like yoga or martial arts. As a bonus, if you could also tell me your goal that would be great and maybe what you identify as (female, male, trans, etc - totally optional as well, i dont want anyone to feel uncomfortable). Regarding the former, I’m on a journey to put on weight through muscle. If your goal is weight loss then cool. If its strength goals then awesome. Whatever it may be let me know. I feel like it’ll help people filter through pages a bit better as well. Also, you dont have to follow me to be part of the post. So dont feel obligated to do so. Obviously I wont be able to list every POC on this website (& I’ll list those I already know of), so by all means create your own lists or let me know if some lists already exist so i can reblog them. I’ll also include blogs that are already aimed at POC in fitness/health. The hashtag, again, is super important in organizing posts and making our pages easily accessible. So please reblog this so we can spread the word. I hope this becomes a success and if it does I ask y'all to be patient with me because I’ll be doing everything through my phone for the time being. Even if it doesnt take off, those that do submit info will be put into a post regardless. There is no quota to fill with this.


Additionally, I’ll be tagging a few blogs i follow (fitness related or not) that I know for sure have a good amount of followers. Hopefully, they’ll be kind enough to reblog this and understand why I’m making this request. Aside from all that, good luck with your fitness/health goals and tag those posts for more visibility!

Yours truly, fit-lioness

i got audited by the “IRS”

So today we got one of those automated phone calls that says “press 1 to speak with a customer representative” and it said it was the IRS and i knew that i had outstanding taxes so i pressed 1 and talked to the guy. he confirmed that he “had my account up” by confirming my address. then he proceeded to tell me that the irs was suing me because i hadnt paid my taxes and that this was a last minute attempt to contact me before they arrest me, drag me into court and i end up having to pay about $40,000 and going to jail and that if i hang up that it will be considered a refusal to take an out of court settlement and they will level the charges against me. 

i’m pretty scared of that happening so i say ok let me get the money together, how do i pay it? and he said something about cash and federal vouchers and i said i cant get cash because it’s after banking hours and he says ok so what we’re going to do is i’m going to instruct you on how to pay it on the computer over the phone. so we go through this process and he does this VPN thing and takes control of my computer? i’m skeptical of this and i ask why i dont just pay it through the IRS website and he says something that sounds complicated and official and at this point we’d already been on the phone a while so im frustrated so i’m like okay whatever, but i ask for confirmation that he really is from the irs. he says some more mumbo jumbo then says that the amount should confirm his identity and that if he wasnt from the irs how would he know that i owe money to the irs because everything is very secure. then he says that i will give him the information and once the transaction has been confirmed he will send me the confirmation paperwork which will confirm he is really from the IRS and after it is confirmed the payment will go through. and because i’m a fucknut halfwit im like oh shit yeah ok that makes sense and start trying to make the payment

fortunately, my dad came home and i came to my senses before i could actually give him my bank info. i called him down, explained what was happening, said i suspected it wasnt really the irs and gave him the phone. then i go try and find some way of confirming that it’s really the irs i’m talking too but the irs doesnt have like a 24 hour number and i can only call them during business hours so dad is talking to this guy (who is getting very frustrated) in the kinds of tones that you use with a spooked horse (at one point he literally said, “there’s no need to get upset. see we’re speaking in calm tones”) 

eventually i realize i’m not 100% sure that the amount was correct (and besides i owed state taxes not federal) so i go get the notice i got from the state of maryland. sure enough the amount they billed me for was about $300 less than what he was asking for. i asked him to explain the discrepancy and he said something about the federal government adopting the debt when it passes the due date and the amount incurring fees which made sense so i was like ok so give me the notice number to confirm that you are from the irs. he refused. i asked him to give me the amount that i was asked to pay back in may when the notice was sent. he refused. i asked him to give me his name and number. he refused. i asked him to speak to his supervisor. he refused. the more i insisted that he confirm that he was from the IRS the more angry he got and he kept repeating the whole jail, knocking down your door, $40,000 thing. (although i wasn’t really sure if i was going to be arrested or summoned to court or if my mom was going to be arrested? it was very unclear) 

at this point i’m like 1000% sure he’s not the IRS but just in case no way am i going to hang up. so while my dad is getting the maryland state taxes website up i’m basically just taking abuse and delivering some pretty satisfying comebacks (i.e. [phone guy in italics] “let me explain you something” “is it something you haven’t explained before?” or “can I have your name and number?” “no i will not give you my name and number!” “why not? what am I gonna do? call you up and threaten YOU will a $40,000 fine???” and “YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO DEFRAUD THE IRS” “no.. YOU are attempting to defraud the IRS”) . then my dad finally gets the information, gets logged in, discovers that the amount i actually owe is totally different than the one they quoted me, and made the payment to the state of maryland right then and there. 

so then I say, “look, you said that if I hang up you’re gonna arrest me. now I don’t believe that you really are from the IRS, but just in case, i’m not gonna hang up this phone. you can if you want. bye.” and put the phone down. Then my sister picked up the phone and he is literally screaming in her ear and she says “sir, i’m going to need you to do me a favor. I need you to calm down. You are getting irrational and I cannot understand you.” he stops for a moment and then screams “YOU ARE ALL CRIMINALS!” so my sister says calmly “no, none of my family are criminals, but i suspect that you are” and he hung up.

there’s still the slimmest of possibilities he was really from the irs, but i paid my taxes so i dont expect any formal charges

moral of the story: never ever ever ever ever give anyone your social security number, your banking information, or any other sensitive information over the phone unless you know EXACTLY who you are talking to and why they need it.

Pls tell us why you're so happy fuck everyone who's gonna hate. I just love hearing fan stories about julian, he makes me so happy. You're a cool person to represent the fan base :-)

god ok there is honestly so much. it would take like 10 pages to say everything that happened. some stuff i want to keep for myself tbh so ill just say a little bit because im dying to get it off my chest. 

ok so in florida (i made a little post about this before), julian recognized me and was like “we’ve met before… dont tell me where….. fader fort.” and i was like wtfffffff. then we talked and accidentally held up the line at the signing and yeah it was cute. then i told him i was going to the texas shows and he said “good, then we’ll hang out”.

ok in austin, i went to the signing at waterloo for my friends because they didnt really wanna go, so i took their cds. when julian saw me he was like “OHHHH SHIIIIT. you made it!” and yeah, made small talk again. he was like “so, you live in austin?” and i said yeah, and he said “the puzzle… is unraveling” and i started laughing because that didnt make sense then he said “the puzzle is forming?” and we agreed that was better. then as i was about to walk away, he held out his hand, and i thought we were gonna do one of those ~bro fives~ but then he kept hold of my hand and pulled me forward and gave me a big bear hug. then he said “yeah man. we’ve hung out like 5 times already? we’re buds now”. ok fast forward, austin show happens, its incredible, julian sees me in the crowd and reaches out to grab my hand then leaves the stage, it was very cute. i meet him after the show, but i mostly talk to jeff. btw jeff is an absolute sweetheart. as we were leaving julian said “goodnight ladies” and then i saw him talking on a black flip phone lol. 

lol i look so dumb in this next one but look at his face omg

the next day, i wake up, take an exam, and then get on a bus with my friend monica jeffreykite and we head to houston. we arrive, then stop by cactus record store just to look around. we didnt stay for the signing because idk. i didnt wanna annoy them and plus ive already gotten my stuff signed. so we went to the venue and got in line. i then met up with my friend daniela chillmorena who is an absolute cutie pie. the houston show was soooo fucking good oh my god. jeff even told me later that it was the best show they’ve ever played. after the show, julian doesnt come out. but sooo much shit happens. anyways lol. i end up talking to jeff and long story short we become good friends. jeff tells me to keep in touch and we say goodnight and that we’ll see each other tomorrow (at the dallas show). also jeff almost got hit by a car and he totally didnt care omfg. 

i say goodbye to daniela, we drive back to austin, pick up our friend mary, and then leave to dallas the next morning. ok this festival in dallas was the shittiest festival i have ever been to in my life. it was in the middle of nowhere and i have no idea why the voidz got booked for it?? anyways. we arrive. jeff comes out later to talk to me in his pajamas lmao god hes so cute. we talk about some stuff and how the festival was weird and how it was cold and he got really concerned after i told him there was no reentry so i couldnt go get my jacket in the car. beardo was even concerned that his fingers were gonna freeze up and he couldnt play guitar. gosh i felt so bad for them. 

ok let me tell you how tragic this festival was. alex never soundchecks his own drums. but he did that day and like. no one noticed. there were also only like 30 people in the crowd before they went on. they were late coming on stage too. they seem hesitant and finally come on. by the middle of the set there were still less than 100 people in the crowd. this obviously upset julian and he even said “im not gonna let this get me down” :( then some guy was yelling at him and julian said “everyones a critic”. also he said they werent gonna do an encore because that basically wouldnt work .damn i felt so bad. i even saw jeff trying to warm up his hands :( anyways onto the cool part. so despite julian being a little upset, he noticed me and monica in the front. in between one song hes like “oh hey! you again!” and then later he pointed at us and said “thank you girls for coming out to all the shows and being so supportive”. throughout the set he kept pointing at us and looking at us and trying to tell us stuff but the band kept cutting him off so he couldnt finish. then, during the last song, he comes up to end of the stage and looks down and i was like, holy shit, hes gonna come down here. then he jumps down, and jogs over to us and i hold his hands, then he leans in and gives me a hug and we were like kissing each others cheeks and then he does it to monica and godfufksnf it was so fucking funny because we were all just kissing each other and hugging violently?? fuck i bet it looked so funny from the outside view. this video was taken like immediately after it happened (ps thats my arm). then he jumped back on stage and looked at us while doing this omfg (also this isnt my pic)

so anyways yeah thats a good summary of it i suppose. so to wrap up, i am soooo thankful for jeff. him and julian are the sweetest human beings on the entire planet. i can never thank them enough for everything theyve done for me. ah. i cant wait to go to another show :(

//CRACKS FINGERS//

OK, I STILL HAVE SO MANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS???

** THIS IS GOING TO BE A LONG POST. Im not putting it under a “read more”, because i dont want my theme to distract from the points im making. Also i want people to read this. I put this in the “long post” tag for courtesy.**

This has literally been bothering me ever since i found out they outright cursed out my friend and fellow artist. I attempted to play devil’s advocate in some parts, but i just couldn’t justify these actions but through suggestions. Keep an open mind, and please try and report this user. Since instagram’s report system is confusing, i’ve made a somewhat step-by-step process through here [X].

Now with that out of the way; let’s get this fucking party started, shall we?

Let’s first go through the situation at hand first:

This user on instagram that goes by the name “america.england” has been posting “screenshots” and unsourced art of USUK art from their computer/mobile device. They claim to have downloaded all of their photo’s via Google and screenshots from other instagram users. Thus, according to their logic, means that they “don’t have to” source who created the art they enjoy in the first place. When artists first found out about this user, they first simply asked to take down their art, because that was the original artist’s wishes. This is a normal ritual that goes down when someone’s art is reposted; they ask for it to be taken down, and the user complies. But, this user then curses out the artists, threatens to block them, shows their unbreakable pride further than they should, and tries to justify their actions with poor excuses and foul attitude. This user still has a bunch of followers for no other reason then that they are basically a instagram-tumblr blog who posts their saved pictures onto a social media site w/o sourcing, and gets into a hissy fit whenever they are proven wrong. Then they desperately try and justify themselves, hiding their flaws through lies* and self-victimising, and in the end, dont learn their lesson.

Multiple people and artists have tried to take down their account, or at least try and tell them what they are doing is wrong. But, pride in strong in this one, kids. (And i’m going to mention pride often in this, so beware.)

Even though we succeeded in getting some art taken down, their account is still up. They used to put millions of tags on their reposts, even though they claimed to have “no time to find the original artists”. So, after a bunch of the art got deleted, they started tagging just one tag. “#usuk”.

As you can tell from the screenshots above, they tried to once again justify their actions, for what seems to be their last huzzah, or so we hope. But there are still millions of flaws in their argument, and since i am a USUK artist who got their old-ass art reposted on their account, and i have a lot of things to say, i will try and let everyone know why what they are saying is still extremely horrifying.

Let’s go through this once sentence at a time, shall we?

“This account isn’t for your enjoyment. This account was made because I saved 1000+ photos and wanted to save space by posting them.” 

Why not just use Photobucket, find another online picture saver, or at least a place where IT’S NOT A SOCIAL MEDIA SITE MADE TO SHARE TO A LARGE CROWD? (This is also a main point to this argument, im going to bring this up often.) If you wanted to “save space”, and didnt want to spend money, go to a site that allows you to do that and don’t try and gain followers for your “storage”.

“I have respect for the artists that make these drawings. Fuck, I’m even an artist myself and attend a school for animation.”

As an artist who attended/will eventually continue to attend school for animation/arts in High School AND College, and have PROOF that i am of age and actually studied in that field, this is kind of offensive to people like me. Sure, this is somewhat valid if what they are claiming is true, but unless i am proven otherwise (and im open to being proven wrong unlike this bloke), let’s just assume they’re just playing the victim card. This statement is like saying a racist joke but then claiming “but my friend is a POC, i can say that, we’re best friends”. I know, i’ve done that before. It’s still wrong. If you are an artist, and you say you have respect for other artists, don’t shit on artists. Even if you dont consider yourself an artist, it doesnt change either way. You’re either a hypocrite, or an asshole. You pick.

“But you people are asking for a source that I don’t have and I realize you’re asking me to go the extra mile to find the artist but I.DONT.WANT.TO. I made this account for ME. This is basically a photo album for me.”

I can tell you from the top of my head some wonderful people who GO that extra mile to MAKE SURE they 1) have permission from the original artist and 2) source them correctly. There are literally dozens of lovelies that i follow that give me the source, the permission link, and the beautiful art that comes with the package. These tumblr blogs are solely dedicated to making sure the artist is happy with their actions, and there are tumblr blogs solely dedicated to making sure assholes like you source your shit. Hell, ive even seen some of your fellow USUK instagram blogs who source to SOURCE YOUR SHIT if you’re going to post other’s art on another SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM. If you dont want to be that person, fine, you dont have to. Just PLEASE dont share it to a large audience if it’s meant to be a PHOTO ALBUM for YOU. If you’re not willing to go the extra mile to be respectful, stay 5 miles back, you dingus.

“This account could have had 0 followers and been private but I decided to make it open to public viewers.”

WHY? WHY THOUGH? That’s literally the opposite of a personal storage. Again, this is a SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM, meant to be used as a place where artists, bloggers, shops, etc get their stuff out to a large audience. If you wanted to share your “photo album” to your friends, that’s what Skype is for, that’s what Snapchat is for, that’s what a private Facebook is for, NOT a public instagram account. Literally anything private for you and your friends. Not a “following”. If your account “could have been private and have 0 followers”, and you seem to be fine with that, then FUCKING DO THAT??? All of these problems could be solved if you just make the account private and not have the intention of gaining young USUK lovers for your sick ego.

“You people who are dm-ing me and telling me to kill myself are not helping. I will post the content I want.”

This is probably one of the few things i agree with. People should NOT be telling anyone to kill themselves. But, you are making people angry for your terrible actions and reactions. Though, that does not justify these people’s actions. That stuff is terrible, no one deserves that. Its true, that’s not helping, but maybe it will open your eyes a little bit if you decide to be open minded. Instead of these people trying to shove you down, try and use that motivation to not get angry, but to look at it in their perspective. Again, this does NOT justify this user getting these type of DM’s, but take a look again on why they are acting this way. You have the right to post the content you want, but it HAS to follow the guidelines of the person who owns the art, and the guidelines of instagram. You, my friend, violated both of those.

“If you want the source and I so happen to have it, I will give it to you. When I mean “source” I mean name of a doujinshi. I don’t have the artists names because half of my photos are screenshots from other accounts. The other half are photos I save from google and even those don’t have their name.”

THIS is the gold here, friends. THIS is their prime argument. There are SO many things wrong with this, and here’s why: Why would you dare go as low as screenshoting from other’s accounts, or just randomly save from fucking Google images. Do you need me to tell you how Google fucking works? It’s a search engine that allows you to find the images and sources you want. GOOGLE IS NOT A WEBSITE THAT IN ITSELF HAS ALL THE THINGS YOU NEED. You HAVE to go INTO the links and sites that it suggests to you, and not just save from the fucking search engine itself. Maybe if you actually took 3 seconds to click the goddamn link, it could have taken you to someone’s deviantart or tumblr. I can’t even fucking believe this idiotic logic you have. It’s just so baffling. It’s like walking down a street, taking pictures of some cool landmarks, but not telling people where to go visit them itself. You’re just showing them pictures. If someone wanted to go there themselves, they cant, because you’re a selfish prick who didnt bother to look up at the signs. If someone wanted to leave a donation to said landmark to support it, they can’t, because they’d have to wander the streets looking for it instead of you giving them the map that you recklessly tossed away. It’s unnecessary work. The reason why so many people don’t include links and sources nowadays, is because of assholes like you who have this stupid logic. “Well, i didn’t write down the directions, because this person didnt do it either.” It’s a vicious cycle, and it needs to stop. Don’t continue it. Just because your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?

“I also enjoy the fact that people are targeting me because I do happen to post on a regular basis and have 1k+.”

????? THIS IS PURE NARCISSISM AND PRIDE, FOLKS. NO ONE cares how many followers you have. NO ONE cares if you “post on a regular basis”. It’s just easier to find you, that’s why you’re being “targeted”. (Also your tags are pretty long, friend. It’s not hard.) If other accounts did the same things you were doing, they would get the same treatment. You’re not special, just because you flip-off artist’s hard work. You’re just another asshole who can’t keep their ego in their pants for 0.3 seconds. “LOL fuck the ‘haters’, i dont care, fuck the man LOLOL”. Keep it behind closed doors, dude. Don’t wave your dick in people’s faces. Sorry, im just so sick of this at this point. Just, don’t be a prick about how your actions are “justified”, honestly.

“If you really expect me to post the source now, you are gladly mistaken.”

I think you spelled “my ego and pride is too big for me to carry, so i’m going to pretend i did nothing wrong and not look at my mistakes” wrong.

“I mean, would you rather me end my life or not post the source?”

How about you just listen to the artists of the art (that you so happen to say you “respect”) that you are reposting? Are you so stuck on either listening to death treats, or not listening to reason? The answer is literally right in front of you. Just say you’re sorry, and move on. Are you really so intent on literally not stopping what you’re doing, that you’re willing to end your own life? Why.

“If you want to bitch about me and my decision, unfollow?? Like I don’t want you on my account if you’re going to be bitching and complaining about my personal choice. Everyone who decides to comment negatively about this will be blocked. I don’t have time for your shit. I don’t care who you are, how many followers you have & even if I am following you. this account was made for ME. follow if you want, I could care less.”

Translation: “If you don’t want to see me shit in public, then don’t look lol”. Yo, you’re using a SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM that is designed to be SHARED WITH STRANGERS. If you want to shit with your friends while holding hands, or shit privately, then DO IT BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. Make your account private or use a different platform that isn’t social. Just because I and many others don’t like what you are doing, doesn’t mean it’s okay for you to spread your indecency to other unknowingly innocent people who dont know any better. Again, this is just encouraging the vicious cycle. Let me say it again just in case it wasn’t clear:

YOU. ARE. ENCOURAGING. THE. VICIOUS. CYCLE.

Literally look at the comments left on this post. People are supporting this because “well, other people do it and they say its okay, so i’ll just listen to this person instead of the artist that im taking the art from.” Sure, your intentions are not meant to be harmful, but it doesn’t excuse the fact that you are harming people still. Just because you acknowledge your actions, doesnt mean its solved.

The reason it takes “hours” to find a proper source, is because assholes like this keep on growing the gap between the artist and their art. PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE THIS INSTEAD.

It’s okay to admit that you’re wrong. It’s okay to learn from your mistakes. It’s okay to change. It’s okay to grow. It’s okay to be human.

BUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS WRONG.

ASK PERMISSION, OR AT THE VERY LEAST, SOURCE YOUR GODDAMN REPOSTS.

OR JUST SWITCH TO FACEBOOK OR SOME SHIT. IT’S NOT HARD.

BUT, if you try and rebuttal against my arguments, just be aware that i am open to potentially being wrong, and i am open minded to other sides of the story. Like a decent human being.

Do you not understand that our government is so corrupted? America has another 20 years at most. Say hello to communism.

I do understand that the government is insanely corupt thats part of the proublem. You (I say this in general to the world not specifically to you dear, sweet, unknowable anon) force me into defense of many of its actions through your own actions and misunderstandings.

Ferguson. Their is a shooting, and then a riot, the police are on scene with riot gear… is this tyrany or corruption? No this is ESCALATION, Newtons Law with guns. The crowds promise “no justice, no peace” but that is a lie. The crowd wants to lynch the officer, that is their justice, the facts be damned. The facts that were unknown when this all began because they rioted before anyone could investigate. You say I ignore government coruption because of this (I assume).

A child is shoot by Police and I support the Officer (so I must not understand Police coruption). Except that I have something you lack, perspective, I have been in a war zone before, and make no mistake the police are at war (before you get to excited let me explain). When you fight an enemy that wears no uniform, could be anybody, and hates you to the point it endoctrinates its children to hate you that sounds like Iraq vs US Troops, or America vs the Police. I am a Chapleton and it is oue belief to support the Police in the fulfillment of all just laws, and to combat coruption whenever it is found. You all get so caught up in hating the police that you crusify them for mistakes not coruption, which breaks my heart because you ignore the actual coruptions. And worse make everything a VS race issue.

At the Bundy Ranch, that was coruption the government tried to steal land, they even set up 1st Amendment areas. People resisted, there was no violence, and the government abandoned its aims.

Fast and Furious. The government gives guns to the violent drug cartels, one is used in the death of a federal agent. That is coruption.

Amnesty. Thousands if not millions of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, have flooded through the boarders and are being given better benifits then Veterans. That is Coruption.

Obamacare. Forcing milions to loose coverage and then fining them for it. Spending milions on a website that doesnt work that my nefew could have built for free in his mothers basement. That is coruption.
Police beating a mentally ill homeless man (white) to death as he begged for his mother. That is coruption.

The Police abusing and tazing a father(black) of 4 to death, in front of those kids, in his own living room during a drug bust at the wrong address(where no drugs were found). That is coruption.

The Police raiding a known drug house and grenading a baby(Latino) (accidents happen, especially with grebades) and then refusing to pay for the 6 month old babies burn treatments even though no drugs were found… That is coruption.

The Police executing a warrent on the wrong house and executing the 80 year old(white) owner of the home when he found them. That is corruption.

The Police illegally entering a mans(black) house without a warrent or identifying themselves aresting him when he shot one of them. That is coruption.

I have included the races of those involved since that seems to be the only part of the story anyone cares about. I have given examples of coruption and brutality across the board, against very nearly every group and background. Stories that no one is protesting, that nobody is rioting about, that in each instance their was clear cut innocence, not murkey innuendo. That is coruption.

Forgive me if I stand firm with my beliefs and support the government and police when they are right. I do fight them when they are wrong. The tragic thing is that the Police have become the New African Americans in America (before anyone gets offended let me explain). There are twice as many African American males in college as in prison, a fact few realize. Yet their is a stigma, and has been a bias within the media, only reporting the worst and preying upon that bias. The Police are now under that same umbrella, for instance did you know that fewer than 1% of cops will use their weapon each year? And that only a % of those are leathal force incidents? So the other 99+% dont kill anyone. Or did you know that kitchen knives, car accidents, and surgery each kill more people each year than the Police do in several? If you did not know this then you have been decieved, and if you have been decieved you must ask why…?

"i have so many opinions" Cass please share at least some of them w us :-)

i dont want tooooooo… it’s late and im sleeeeeeepyyyyyyyyy.. and honestly… im pretty over everyone running at you for actually having an opinion and stating it on this website… like fuck. what happened to good old fashioned speculation? like… i havent publicly speculated in a long time but thats because i couldnt really be bothered and was just like meh about whatever happened… but now it’s like when you do have a little theory on something… OH NOOOO THATS NOT ALLOWED BECAUSE THERE IS NO FACT OR PROOF BEHIND IT… i mean EXACTLY mate!! last time i checked thats what speculating meant… like, you gather the evidence you have and put some theories together about what you possibly think would happen and bobs your uncle theres a theory… but apparently these days you can’t do that unless you have 100% all the facts written in alphabetical chronological geographical colour coded order with little tabs and posts its on the parts which you specifically should outline as FACT… like fuck me drunk. no thanks mate… im just here to theorise about a boyband, talk about the business side of things, read some decent fic and reblog cute pics… i dont give a fuck if im right or wrong… im not gonna lose sleep over whatever happens… but apparently everyone else and their fucking mothers dogs auntys uncles sisters cousins goldfish will..

i know it’s a little shitty and annoying when people take speculations as fact and that causes them to have these high expectations about shit that may or may not happen in the future… but it’s not my fault if people take speculations and theories as facts… im sorry but we’re all grown ups. we all have our own brains.. so if you see someone speculating about something and you take that as fact and then you get disappointed that something doesnt happen because you based your emotions and expectations off that speculation, well please dont come crying to me… 

at the end of the day it doesnt matttttterrrrrrrrr if we all sit here and talk about stunts and non-stunts whatever else… it doesnt matter if we get it right or wrong. it doesnt matter if what one person says doesnt line up with how you see something… it doesnt matter if one person believes something and someone else doesnt… it really doesnt matter. because shit’s gonna happen anyway… so you can let everyone talk amongst themselves but keep your expectations at a level where you can control them or you can get all worked up if things are right or wrong and you can lose sleep over it… i know which one ill choose
