that's the last thing we need

 I’ve seen a few posts around saying that Andy was problematic or that the episode would have worked just fine without him. The thing to remember is that the crewniverse creates this show to be relatable not only in ways that have us singing from the mountain tops, but also in ways that are a little harder for us to face. Maybe in ways that make us uncomfortable, but are very much issues that we need to address as well. 

How many people were reminded of their own closed minded family members while watching Andy? My literal thoughts were ‘oh look, it’s my dad in an SU ep!’, before wanting to sink away from second hand embarrassment for the comments he made. Because man, have I been there before. 

Because who hasn’t had their sort of uncle freak out over the illegal hippy martian immigrant farmers your dad said could live in his barn? 

No but really. Especially that part about hearing about this on AM radio? Yeah, at least one writer has come up close and personal with this type of specimen. It may seem that given the timing of certain current events, the last thing anyone wants to see on SU is one of THOSE types. 

But here’s the thing: they exist. You can hide your head under a rock all you want, but they’re still there. So what do we do? We actually get two points of view on this. One: the gems as literal aliens. On a good day they really don’t understand even the most open minded of humans. So here they are running smack into one that’s mad about a world that’s changing even without the interference of the gems. And he’s upset that they’re not acting in the “traditional” roles he’s use to seeing human women in. Never mind that they’re not human, or technically speaking, women. They’re there in his barn, messing with his things, and really there’s no way this can end well. 

Until you bring in the nephew he never knew he had. Who just so happens to be very, very interested in learning about his human family.And who just wants everyone to get along. Because let’s face it, that’s Steven’s MO. He’s so focused on finding out that his family name is ‘Demayo’ that Andy’s comment to Greg ‘not even marrying an American’ floats right by him. But it was very much meant for the audience to hear. 

Not that any of that matters to Steven, he’s already planning the most awkward family reunion in the galaxy. 

And the Gems, bless their hearts, are eager to make Steven happy.

And honestly, for all his misgivings, so is Andy.

To a point anyway. Until he realizes that maybe, just maybe things are changing. That change is coming whether he likes it or not. And that change can never, ever be one sided. 

And at the first Thanksgiving, the gems and the humans gave thanks for polyamorous wedding cake, corn, this table, and traumatizing life events.

The thing about change is that it’s never simple. It never happens over night. Both sides are scared or angry, or very probably both. They’re also sure that their side is the right side. 

And even when it seems like everything is going right, you’re trying so hard include everyone in your new vision and it seems like you’re really getting through to them, they just… slip away. Because change is scary. Because they’re going through the motions without really understanding why. Because sometimes it’s easier to go along with things even if they don’t agree, even if their heart isn’t in it. So again, what do you do?

You listen. You hear their fears. You let them come to their own conclusions that maybe, just maybe, things HAVE to change. 

But that doesn’t mean being left behind. 

Now for reality: It’s never as simple as this. Bigotry isn’t faced and solved in 20 minutes. No one is saying it is. Sometimes it’s safer not to face it, and sometimes you just can’t. 

But I think overall its meant to be a message of hope- just like the overall message of Steven Universe is a positive one. People have opposing points of view. Talk. Listen. See that in the end you have more in common than you ever thought possible and go from there. Also: family is what you make of it. Even if it’s a dad, an estranged uncle, an alien hybrid child and his hippy illegal martian immigrant aunts. It can work, as long as you work together.

i opened the last package of starbursts today and they were both pink i think the universe is trying to tell me that things will get better

I’ve honestly been feeling really off lately and now hearing that the boys got arrested for spectating a peaceful protest yesterday just infuriates me even more.  I’ve been through a recent experience with US police and they made us feel like criminals and that was for border patrol, so I can’t imagine what kind of intimidation they went through.  I honestly can’t believe that happened and I am livid in how this stupid election is affecting me and I don’t even live in america.  Then again we have bullshit starting to spread to our government because of the election so thats pretty fun.

I still can’t process that this shit is happening.  The fact that I’m going to even be able to say, I was there when Trump was president, is scary and surreal.

I hope you guys stay safe and learn to love and not hate in these times.  Hate is going to push us farther apart and thats the last thing we need.

Back From Tour (Taeyong)

Request by anon : When he comes back from tour and wants sex but the girl’s dog interrupts.

Idol: So I picked Lee Taeyong from NCT for this because hes adorable yet extremely sexy at the same time.

If you want to request a scenario, be sure to check the Kpop Couple Series guidlines. :)


“How much longer are you going to be?” I sighed into my phone.
“We have to stop at the dorm but Im going to take the car to your place as soon as we get there.” Taeyong responded.
“Thats going to take like half an hour” I whined.
“___, you know how badly I wish I could just see you right now” His voice got quiet . “Its been so long and I dont know how much longer I can take without-”
“Okay Okay” I felt my cheeks burn slightly. “Stop talking. Your members might hear you. The Last thing I need is a lecture from Johnny.”
“Alright” Taeyong laughed. “Ill see you then…”
“Ill see you then” I smiled before hanging up. A small sigh escaped my lips and I relaxed on my couch. Suddenly, I heard barking and the pitter patter of tiny feet on wood.
“Jay!” I laughed as my puppy jumped up on my lap. The small golden retriever barked happily. I scratched her ear and smiled at how playful she was being.

Several minutes passed as I sat there playing with my puppy. Finally, I heard the doorbell ring. Jay bolted off of my lap and started to happily bark at the door.
I followed him and opened the door, revealing Taeyong.
“Oh hey Jay” he pet the pup before turning his attention to me and closing the door behind him.
“Im going to steal ___ for a second.” He quickly attached his lips to mine. I immediately kissed him back, and my hands threw themselves to his hair.
“God” He whispered against my lips. “Ive waited so long for you” Without detaching his lips from mine, he started to move me to the bedroom. He closed the door behind us, leaving it just a crack open before pushing me up against the wall. Taeyong grinded against me, earning a moan from my lips.
His mouth detached from mine and started to leave love bites on my neck.
“Taeyong~” I moaned loudly.
“Youre so fucking hot when you moan my name” He groaned. He continued to grind against me, causing me to moan more and more. Suddenly, I heard barking. It got louder and louder until the door flew open with a crash. I pulled away from Taeyong and looked down to see Jay barking. He ran between our legs, causing Taeyong to move back and jumped around between us. He jumped onto his hind legs, attaching his paws to Taeyongs legs.
“Awww, I think he wants to play with you” I laughed.
“Why now?” Taeyong frowned but continued on to pet the dog. “Hes never played with me before”
“Maybe hes jealous” I squatted down and scratched his belly.
“What a cockblocker” Taeyong frowned.
“Dont worry Tae” I smiled. “I’ll make it up to you later” I leaned over and kissed his cheek before pulling back with a wink.
“Youre a tease” He snickered.

anonymous asked:

you know I think it says a lot that karahell shippers think that supercorp shippers are fetishizing wlw relationships when all we want to see is a healthy relationship. it's ALMOST like they automatically think that a wlw relationship is all about sex and nothing else. but if they thought that, well, then they would be the one fetishizing it, not us. hmmm. what could be the answer??

they are so fucking stupid. they literally say things without thinking them through. thats why i asked last night if any of em went to school. because their arguments either have the most confusing logic or the logic isn’t there at all

sry a rant but ://////

scorpius and albus’ relationship in the cursed child was not just fetish fodder. it was a rlly well built up one and even touched on what parts of a relationship are healthy and which aren’t and good communication and support, which is so much more important for people to see then More Straight Couples that Appear to Hate Each Other, which is what we got instead

literally i cannot get over how goddamn awful it was to shove more heteronormativity down our throats at the last minute. harry potter is a series thats incredibly important to me and so many other lgbtq+ people and what we needed was representation not another gross het couple with literally NO chemistry

like im just so tired of this?? im so tired?? i just want queer characters integrated smoothly into writing so some people might actually feel like they can relate to and be comforted by queer characters, not just the Hets™, and things like this are EXACTLY why people don’t feel comfortable in their gender/sexual orientation bc they are treated as though they’re weird or don’t exist

please please normalize queer characters in media

Wᴇ ʜᴀᴠᴇ ɢʀᴏᴡɴ ᴜᴘ ᴛᴏᴏ ᴍᴜᴄʜ… ᴀɴᴅ ᴀ ʟᴏᴛ ʜᴀs ᴄʜᴀɴɢᴇᴅ, ʀɪɢʜᴛ?

I need Max to get asked by David at once point if his family life was ok, like obviously its not but David has to ask eventually because Max is so lost and without hope for the world. And Max just recoils from him like, “Listen, just because you’re Mister Friendship and Happiness doesn’t mean I have to tell you shit.” and thats the last we hear of it for a while. We end up hearing a lot about Nikki’s parents and Neils and stuff, then eventually after some things happen, plot and whatnot, as the time for summer to end draws near, David finds Max sitting on a dock skipping rocks and just sort of sits down beside him, finally just quiet. 

Then after a moment he asks Max if he’s ok, like sincerely and softly, not quite his overdone ‘I must be happy all the time’ usual. And Max is quiet a moment more before going, “You remember when you asked about my life?”

Here we go.

While I enjoyed the episode, the Tsukishima Brothers conversation scene felt rushed and that’s possibly because the last half of their conversation was cut out entirely, and that the kagehina scene that happened after was actually used to break up the tsukibros scene in the manga, so they had that short bit and that was it. But something important was even taken out of the first half of their conversation.

This bit here

Which shows just how hard the last few years have been for the BOTH of them, how much their past affects them. Akiteru, who was all smiles and talked to Kei with such a casual air seconds before, wears this expression when his back his facing Kei. Kei is watching him, watching that back as he tosses up a volleyball, like he used to do as a kid although not quite. The past is something that lingers between them, but neither of them quite have the guts to bring it up, out of fear of opening old wounds for the other.

Akiteru has suffered just as much Kei, but how they handled it was different, as Akiteru later explains when Kei starts asking him questions about if he’s still playing volleyball.

And now, onto the latter half of their conversation that was completely omitted, save for a compressed and abridged version during the preview at the end of the episode.

Akiteru knows Kei is a first year regular (he must keep tabs on his little bro through Mom tbh.) It was Akiteru’s goal to become a first year regular, but he never became one at all throughout his 3 years of high school. But rather than being bitter or resentful, he praises his brother and doesn’t let Kei talk himself down when he shrugs it off as just being because of his height. Akiteru tries to convince him that even if he is a regular for his height alone, it is still something he should be proud of and utilize as a weapon. After all, not everyone is over 6ft tall. Kei expresses veiled insecurity, and Akiteru is having none of that. He won’t let his brother.

Akiteru’s explanation after about having a great ace or someone who’s really tall being the difference between victory and defeat comes up again later during the game against the guy who’s over 2 meters tall, but it’s also Akiteru’s way of telling Kei that he, himself CAN MEAN the difference between victory and defeat.

That last line (or rather, a more condensed and casual version of it, since the manga makes it seem rather serious) plus the next 3 in the following panels made it into the preview at the end of the episode.

I suppose this last bit isn’t so important that it HAD to make the anime, but it still would have been nice to see them banter like this. Also, we learn an interesting thing about Akiteru’s character and that is he still thinks of Kei as cute, and gets upset when he doesn’t act it. (As an older sister myself it is known fact that no matter how big and old your younger siblings get, or how uncute they act at times, they still cute af.) Also the cut-away to the half-moon feels significant, considering the moon symbolism that always comes up with Tsukishima, and considering the brothers share the name Tsukishima.

I suppose it was still nice they did include that last bit about height and uncuteness in the pv instead of completely cutting it out altogether, but the significance of that scene in it’s entirety is still lost.

It’s possible they could always include it in the next episode or whenever they go up against the team with a 2 meter first year. But I’m not holding my breath.

Every Song In 'The Last Five Years,' Ranked By Uncontrollable Sobbing
We proudly present a highly subjective sobfest ranking all the songs in the sobbing-est musical ever to blow your mind with its complex chronology.

So we return to the beginning of the story, and she will soon come home and find the note, and in theory you could watch this movie on an endless loop of agony and just cry and cry and cry because everything is terrible and why even bother and I need to lie down.

In the last 2-3 yrs ive been seeing lot of young girls DJing and its a beautiful thing for music. I hope in the next few years we see more n more girls producing music, that would change everything I think. Its like for every 1000 dudes that make beats theres one girl that does and that shouldnt be. 

Sharing music with people is beautiful but creating it from your mind is empowering and gives you a voice, not to say djing doesnt but with production u can say anything you like and i think thats what music// the world needs, we need to hear what ladies have to say. the music in their minds. we need healing. 

just a little reminder that i don’t necessarily have a problem with st*ron as a pairing, or either of the characters individually. it’s not just because i want marvel to make the pretty boys kiss, either

the reason i am disappointed with st*ron is that there’s no build up to it. no real reason for it. this movie already has enough going on. the last thing it needs is a romantic subplot out of nowhere. from some reviews it also sounds like sharon is barely in the movie at all. almost like she’s only there to kiss steve and that’s it. and I’m not okay with that

I’m still going to enjoy this movie I’ve been waiting 2 years for, but I’m not going to pretend to be happy with this relationship. idk i just figured I’d share my stance on this

Random things thats happened in Deo's stream over the past year that I suddenly remember:

-Ale’s existence
-watching a stream, passing out at 4 am, only to wake up 4 hours later in a completely new stream to @ghostyknight’s voice
-“Child of ours, we know you didn’t sleep last night”
-Deo sleeping in the middle of a 12+ hour stream with everyone still watching
-4:20 celebrations
-Deo and the Meme Squad singing Bohemian Rhapsody
-Craig singing Mr Brgihtside and Deo responding with “Craig what the fuck are you singing”
-THOSE TWO TIMES THEY SAT ON A GRASSHOPPER (?) AND A CENTIPEDE
-That time they were drawing and a huge ass spider appeared on screen
-/circletine/
-Craig grounding the stream

Honestly all I can remember atm

their fics are a direct ripoff of a glee writer named chazzam. she’s literally taken the fics word for word and changed the names, and in one of them she left “kurt and blaine” in a part and when confronted, blatantly lied and said it was because she’s “obsessed with Glee and got the names mixed up while writing!” please be very careful with reading fics and if you notice names that shouldn’t be there, take a few seconds to look up the story to make sure it’s not been plagiarized before supporting it.
