the commercialization of things i care about

Art School | Sophie Roach (Austin, TX)

Drawing and painting her way through an imaginative landscape of intricate and visual entanglements is Austin native, Sophie Roach.  Her artwork has endlessly covered  surfaces from– guitars, beer cans, Vans, to entire rooms.  And if that isn’t already insanely rad, her organic approach and laid back attitude make her not only incredibly humble, but also a super awesome collaborator.  While finishing up one mural and starting up new projects, we had the chance to ask Sophie a few questions about her art, her career, and her approach – from finding her voice, attacking a mural, to digging the quietude one might find as a mail person hah!

Universal Apology Letter

Dear (Insert Name Here),

Life’s weird
I look at my hands and get freaked out
I look at the clock and get freaked out
A commercial’s playing in the background
I love(d) you
With all my heart

Whatever happened to us
Whoever said what when
I think about you more than I’d like to admit
I care about what you think of me more than you could ever know
Something’s blowing across the ground in the distance
Humming a soft song

I don’t know why I did that thing that one time
Maybe I was scared
Confused
Upset
Maybe I was out of line
But I didn’t do that one thing
I don’t care what anyone else says
I didn’t do it
I was in the clouds
Scattering down

Maybe I’ll never see you again
Maybe I’ll die tomorrow in a freak accident
Maybe I’ll explode and dance among the stars
Whatever

I’m sorry
I love(d) you (Insert Name Here)
With all my heart
Whatever’s easiest for you
I genuinely wish you the best

-Steven

So at least on my dash, nobody ever drags the xxTPs, so I'mma do it really fast bc y'all really piss me off from time to time.

Like would it kill you to NOT critique rules from time to time trying to find all the damn loopholes? Like pls can u not. LIKE SURPRISINGLY JUST BC SOMETHING DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO YOU DOESN’T MEAN IT’S NOT SENSIBLE IN THE LONG RUN?? Like is it so hard to realize that if you take into account EVERY SINGLE tiny ass thing you guys pick out, nothing would ever get done???

Rules, laws, procedures, etc, they’re there to make things easier. And like?? Honestly fuck you, ExTPs? Stop blatantly doing the loophole thing that the rules don’t cover just because you can. Y'all are so damn full of acting like a dick while not coming up with PROPER SOLUTIONS. And you, IxTPs? Just stop. You may not outwardly defy the untold laws, but you still don’t come up with solutions like the shut in you are.

Keep to your own crap and leave laws alone.

anonymous asked:

people acting like smart & pretty are mutually exclusive things messed with me a lot in middle school/early high school. i felt like i couldn't be smart if i looked pretty or cared about my appearance and it caused me to be very judgmental against other girls. I finally in my junior got over myself and since then have been embracing my femininity more and more, while still be very focused on my studies (currently pursuing a STEM degree!) but I still struggle with these two things and I hate it

It really can mess you up. I remember that commercial a little while back where the little girl was saying “this is your brain on glitter” and acting like enjoying glitter and girly things was making you stupid. Nothing short of brainwashing that makes girls feel shitty for the things that they enjoy. Doesn’t sound very feminist to me.

The Long Distance Dissonace (10x24)

If you haven’t watched, SPOILERS ahead!!!

This is not the typical review/summary I usually do. This is more a venting platform and some random thoughts on this episode. Please note I am unspoiled so I have not had the time to process things that most of the spoiled fandom may have had time to process so I apologize for my feels which are everywhere right now.

1. I will say right of the bat that in terms of comedic value, this episode was gold. It had a very funny script, the plot made way for lots of funny zingers and the cast was spot on in their acting for these scenes. It may very well be one of the funniest episodes they’ve had. That being said, for the Shamy shippers, it may have caused some angst that made it hard to enjoy the comedy here.

2. Shamy flirting through their video chat is adorable. They are totally both flirting and Sheldon is going for it too. Notice Sheldon called Amy naughty again. 

3. As soon as I saw Ramona entering the cafeteria with Sheldon, I started to freak out. Because I knew she was up to no good. But I was more surprised that Sheldon would even entertain a “friendship” with her especially on the terms they ended last time. It just doesn’t seem in character for me and they never mentioned any reason for there to be this kind of time spent between them voluntarily. Can the writers at least make and effort and come with an excuse like that they had to work together on something? A “toblerone” isn’t enough.

4. Amy skyping with Sheldon and finding out about Ramona broke my heart. She was strong and kept it together although she was obviously jealous. She doesn’t argue with him because she knows how clueless Sheldon can be in these matters. I will say I am glad she found out thru him and not thru other people. It shows Sheldon had no intention of being deceiving. 

5. Sassy Amy arguing with Penny and Bernie was freaking hilarious. “I GAVE YOU ONE JOB. KEEP AN EYE ON HIM. HOW HARD IS THAT?” Mayim is awesome per usual in this scene. (Can the academy just give her the Emmy she deserves, damn it?) Best line all episode came here… 

I’ve been smacking that ketchup bottle for a long time. All she’s gotta do its tip it over and point it at her fries.

So while I was nervous for Shamy, I also just about wet myself with that line. 

6. Why would Sheldon bring Ramona to dinner with the gang? And why would he bring her to their apartment? It’s just inconceivable and out of character to me! The man who wouldn’t allow a woman in his room would allow a woman he hasn’t seen in years into his apartment. Come on, Sheldon? You are naive in some ways but you are also smart. This is the man that was concerned Penny would cheat on Leonard while he was away at North Sea. (S7E2). He should know at least a little bit.

7. The shamy shipping gang was all of us. It was awesome to see the whole gang banding together to protect Sheldon and Amy’s relationship. They were all of us. Bernie wedging herself between Sheldon and Ramona was AWESOME because I was about to throw a fit when I saw that bitch sitting in Amy’s spot. (Sorry for the B word but WTH?) Thank you for your service, Bernie. 

Nice save with the whole gang walking Ramona to her car, OMG!!!! It was so over the top it had me laughing out loud. Then Bernie once again with her sweet voice “excuse me”, followed shortly by Penny. Good on the girls to mark Amy’s territory and good on the whole gang who was truly concerned. They really care about Amy and Shamy’s relationship and that feels good to have everyone so invested.

8. We go to commercial break and I’m thinking we are almost at the end of the episode and have made it safely thru the season finale. Then we get back with Ramona bringing sandwiches to Sheldon’s office. Okay… Penny’s talk must have stuck with Sheldon but I think he refused to believe the obvious.

Are you seeking a romantic relationship with me? 

He has obvious doubts about the whole thing and has given Penny’s word some more thought. He starts naming the reason why that would create some problems; one that they are colleagues and two, he is currently in a relationship… He did have time to say this and that to me is important because it shows that Sheldon was willing to defend his relationship. BUT she kissed him…

And something in me about died. I cannot believe this is happening and I reacted much like the audience. Because Shamy are not your typical relationship and they have really guarded themselves against all this typical relationship crap so I can’t be okay with this. I also felt horrible for Sheldon because his face became dazed, he never closed his eyes while it happened and he is not exposed or used to this interaction with females, just Amy. So now I’m feeling like I’m about to puke because on one hand, he didn’t deserve this but on the other hand, he kind of brought it upon himself and should have known better. Sorry guys but come on Sheldon…

He was silent and stunned. I just saw him walking further and further away from Ramona and I had the feeling he would go to Amy because as I’ve said before, Amy is his safe place. I didn’t expect anything else but to him show up at Amy’s, kissing her and telling her he missed her and loved her. And that would have made it better for me. 

The three famous Sheldon knocks, Amy, Amy, Amy… and our favorite girl, too precious for this world, reacts surprised to hear her true love’s voice. Like me, she wasn’t expecting what would happen. Lo and behold she opens the door to a beautiful sight; Sheldon on one knee with the ring we have been waiting to see for 2 seasons now. The sight was beautiful because Jim Parsons was able to convey honest love and admiration as Sheldon for Amy in every single face muscle and the perfection and sincerity of his soulful eyes. And my heart dropped because I know he loves her so much. And I did gasp so loud I could probably be heard 5 houses down because I waited so long for this.

But something was lost and sacrificed in the process. I also felt sad that Amy didn’t know. And felt sorry that Sheldon may be doing this for the wrong reasons and upset he waited for this to happen to take this step.  The loveliness of their sweet relationship was tampered with. You see, this couple has taken every step with caution and care. Amy has waited a long time for this. Sheldon has come a long way. This moment didn’t need to be any part of Ramona’s sick interference. It was gratuitous and unnecessary of the writers. Because this is not the kind of story Amy deserved to tell her children… “I was away for a few months and your father befriended a woman who ended up overstepping her boundaries. Your father realized how much he loved me after she kissed him and he proposed to me.”

It’s ridiculous because we all know what Amy means to Sheldon and he has known that he loves her a long time. He could have very well given her the ring last episode which was beautiful. But it felt to me the writers wanted to have a cliffhanger or a hook. And that they did, leaving us a whole summer with questions of how Amy will react once she knows what happens. Will she say yes not knowing and then find out and be sad and mad or even call it off? Will she say no because she realizes something is not right about the whole thing? We don’t know. But there are my mixed feelings about all of this and in order to survive hiatus, I will just have to reset my memory to episode 23 and not think about this one because it will drive me insane.


Sorry for the rant. I may change my mind but this is how I feel right now. Some honorable mentions:

  •  I’m glad we saw Stuart again. As always he is pathetically awesome. 
  • Great to see the Amy and Penny drawing again. I wonder how Amy ended up keeping it?
  • Nice to see the cafeteria. Howie’s lines were so funny.
  • Penny trying to explain to Sheldon. “Amy has already taken me ut of my package and played with me”. Yes she has. And you’re right Sheldon, Lenny needs a marriage cousnelor. Glad someone said it. 
  • Where the hell is baby Halley? Should I call the Department for Children’s Welfare?
  • Lenny: “You got fingers and a mouth, you call her.” / “You got feet and legs you do it.” LOL!
  • Poor Raj… smh.

I’m out of hiding so you will see me around more. :) Ryl.

Thief

genre -  angst

summary - facetime with jimin for the first time in a long time…inspired by the gif below…also loosely inspired by thief by ansel elgort 

a/n - no idea where this came from, but yeah it just happened..i kinda started thinking about this at 7:30am in math class after seeing this jimin gif on my dash lol + sorry for any grammar/spelling mistakes, i don’t proofread much

It had been three months, maybe four, heck you’d stopped counting, since you last talked to Jimin. It was easier that way. He was always too busy to talk, too tired, something, anything. He always had a reason not to talk. And you figured you’d quit putting in the effort.

You two have been together for a little over two years now, and sure things were great at first. You were in the honey moon phase. But now that he and the boys had become so popular, hardly taking a break, constantly promoting, you realized you were no longer his number one priority.

But you still were a supportive girlfriend, whether he was actually paying attention or not. You still bought all their albums, watched all their music videos and variety show appearances. Hell you even went to a concert without telling Jimin, because it wasn’t like he’d actually have the time to see you after. It was off to another city just like that.

So here you were, like most nights you lay awake, wondering how his day went. If he ate, how tired he must be from practicing so hard. Sure you’d texted and received a few replies, but that didn’t fill the void. You missed his voice, his laugh. God you loved that laugh. To be blunt, you missed him.

You rolled over, pulling your laptop from your beside and opening it, the bright light blinding you, but your eyes adjusted. You opened to FaceTime, scrolling to his contact, your mouse hovering over the call option. You could practically hear your heart beating in your chest, but you said fuck it and you sat, waiting, hoping that the call would connect.

Just as you were ready to close your laptop, he picked up, causing your heart to skip a beat.

At first the screen opened to an empty hotel room, and you were a bit confused. But soon Jimin appeared, sitting on the edge of his bed. He was in ripped jeans, your favorite, a black hoodie and black hat, and had sunglasses on. He looked great.

Neither one of you said anything, as if waiting for the other. Jimin took down his hood, then sat with his elbows on his knees as he looked at you, though you couldn’t tell because of his glasses.

“Hi.”

“Hi.” His reply was short, and almost harsh. You ignored it, continuing on with whatever questions you felt like asking.

“Where are you guys now?”

He sat back, tilting his head to the side, seeming annoyed, but you tried your best to convince yourself he was just tired.

“Japan, and no Jungkook isn’t rooming with me. No one is.”

“I wasn’t going to-” you stopped yourself from getting angry with him, knowing it would get you nowhere fast. “How are you, you seem tired?”

Jimin sighed as took of his sunglasses, tossing them onto the dressed his laptop was propped up on. “I just came back from our concert.” His voice was a bit hoarse, he sounded exhausted. Taking off his hat his ran a hand through his air, which was now black, news to you. He tossed it aside with his glasses as well.

“I’m sure you gave the fans a great show.”

He scoffed at your words, leaning back on his hands as he stared at you. You could tell by his body language he was annoyed. “Y/n, why did you call me? To try and figure out what’s going on between us, or just to ask about my day?”

Both, that was what you wanted to say, but this being the first time you’d talked in so long, not knowing when you would get another chance to confront him, you had to be bold.

“I mean, what is going on between us? It’s been what, four months since we’ve actually talked, and I don’t mean your idea of us talking on the phone for five minutes before you have to go do something.”

You didn’t notice your tone until he adjusted his posture, as if surprised that you were as upset as you were. “Look, I’m just busy these days.” He ran a hand through his hair as he sat up, his eyes connecting with yours.

“I barely have time to sleep, I’m constantly going to different countries, performing. Coming back to shoot music videos and commercials. Sorry if I don’t have time to call you.”

“You should make time Jimin!” You practically startled yourself, Jimin just staring at you through the screen. “If you loved me, if you cared about this relationship anymore you would make time for a simple phone call every once and again.”

He laughed as he licked his lips, growing angrier the longer this call became.

“If I loved you? If I cared? Y/n, you think I haven’t thought about what I could do,to make things better? For me, you, for us? I have, I did, trust me I did. But, things just take a backseat when other important things come along.”

Tears were filling in your eyes, but you were trying your best to not let him see you upset, you swore long ago you would stop crying over him. Sure you still loved him, and you still would no matter what things he said to you. But, this Jimin, he wasn’t the Jimin you’d fallen in love with. “More important, right. That’s what I thought.”

“Y/n! Come on, I tried to fix myself, for so long. I tried to think how I could be a better man to you, to be what you deserved. But I got tired of trying to change myself. I couldn’t be the man you’d fallen in love with, people change, I changed.”

The next few minutes were filled with silence, and the occasional sigh until Jimin finally spoke again. “Let me guess, you’ve spent countless nights awake, wondering if I was okay, if I was eating well, how my schedule were treating me? Yeah well I had plenty of nights like that too. Wondering how you felt about me, what you thought of me now. And, one day I no longer cared. I didn’t spend those nights thinking of you, wondering what had happened in our relationship. I just, didn’t care.”

How? How could he simply just not care, you’d still been there, regardless if he knew or not, for months. Still supporting him, still loving him, missing him, wanting to hold him, kiss him, anything. How could he just stop caring about any of that?

“What are you trying to say?” Your voice was a bit shaky as you finally spoke, surely he’d seen your tears now, but you could care less, just wanting his explanation so you end the call quickly.

He sighed, shrugging as he looked at the clock at his bedside, telling you he was just ready to get this call finished. “I just, I don’t love you anymore y/n. I’m sorry, but, I stopped loving you months ago.”

Those words practically ripping your heart from your chest. While you had still been hoping for something to change, he had made up his mind, while you were made to believe there was still a chance for some sort of fix.

“So, while you’ve been texting and calling, barely, with me these past few months, that whole time you’d felt nothing. You were just going to let me believe there was still something there, until I finally confronted you about it? How can you do that to me? I’ve been by your side for how long, and you just play with my heart and emotions? I could have moved on long ago, I could have saved myself all the stress and pain these last months have brought me. But because you didn’t have the balls to come right out and say it, I’m the one who has to suffer?”

He put his hands in the air, as if to say there was nothing done wrong on his end, but you were over it.

“Well you got what you wanted Jimin, you don’t have to worry about fixing things because this relationship is done. I wish the best with everything, tell the boys I’m sorry for bringing the into things. I can’t believe I looked like such an idiot because of you. Goodbye Jimin.”

You closed your laptop, surprised you didn’t break the thing in half with how hard you slammed it shut, and set it back on your nightstand. As you laid down you were a bit shocked, you thought that if, and when you and Jimin ever broke up, your reaction would have been much different then it was now. But you had no tears, no sadness, instead almost the feeling of a weight being lifted off your shoulders.

Now you no longer had to worry, or stress over when he would finally answer a call or reply to a text. Sure you would miss him, but you’d held on for too long when you should have let go.

As you tried to go to sleep, your phone dinged at your bedside, and you questioned who would be texting you so late, and as you looked at the screen you laughed.

[Jimin]: I’m sorry things had to happen that way

Rolling your eyes you clicked his contact name, scrolling to the bottom of the screen until you saw the block button appear, pressing it and smiling as you tossed your phone back to it place on your nightstand.


Ugh my endings suckkkkkk, but like I hope you all like this? Idk where it came from but I got super inspired by a gif and a little by a song and that rarely has happened to me lately so enjoy it because who knows when I will find inspiration for a new scenario again hahha

The Bachelorette Week Nine aka Men Tell All The Things We’re No Longer Interested In

Here’s What Happened Monday

  • For those of you who don’t know, The Bachelor franchise does this cute little shtick called the Men Tell All where, in lieu of a real episode, they bring back all the season’s rejected contestants to rehash old grudges and remind people why they’re interesting before they all go on Bachelor In Paradise. Yawn.
  • Chris Harrison promises an unforgettable (but likely very forgettable) night of drama for which they considered beefing up security, but didn’t. To kick off said drama, we are treated with ten minutes of filler from past Men-Tell-All’s starring men I’ve never heard of nor cared about in my life.
  • After the commercial break we are reintroduced to Rachel’s former men again. There are a few new hairstyles (and hairplugs… Matt), but most things are the same. Diggy adjusts his bowtie, Whaboom guy does his thing, Blake is still sadly only an “aspiring” drummer, and Dean just sits there being young and beautiful.
  • DeMario, sad clown, guy accused of sexually assaulting a fellow castmate on Bachelor In Paradise, tries to regain his dignity by claiming that the girlfriend who got him eliminated from The Bachelorette was merely a sidechick. Classy. Some dude named Jamey accuses him of hurting oh so many people, a point lost while everyone thought, “who the hell is this guy?”

Kenny The Dad and Your Racist Uncle Lee

  • Of course we have to deal with the Lee/Kenny drama again, which we were all happy to leave in the past as this season’s major racism-for-kicks embarrassment. All the men take the side of good guy Kenny, except DeMario who defends his fellow villain.
  • After making Kenny out to be the best man and father ever (including a surprise appearance by his adorable daughter, who Kenny either knew was coming or was kidnapped and brought to set), Lee offers a shallow apology for being a douche. No one is having it though – not even Chris Harrison, who fans the flames by bringing up Lee’s old tweet comparing the NAACP to the KKK. Lee painstakingly acknowledges that his tweet (and maybe some of his behavior) was racist and apologizes. The other men accept and vow to try to rehabilitate his racist ass.
  • But seriously, the winners? Anthony, Josiah, Kenny, and all the guys who challenged systemic racism on national television. Slow clap.

Dean The Real Boy

  • Chris Harrison invites Dean onstage, strokes his velvet camo tux jacket, and mutters “everybody loves some Dean.” We get to watch the Dean highlight reel: the weird “once I go black I’ll never go back” line, the weird sandbox thing, the weird dad thing, his swift dumping. What a legacy.
  • Dean looks older to me, a little more comfortable in his skin, a little fuller in the face, a little stupider in the hair. He reveals that he’ll be on Bachelor In Paradise, which is great because he’ll finally be close in age to some of his fellow contestants. (Nick’s rejected 23-year-olds, I’m looking at you.)
  • Rachel comes out, Dean asks her why she told him she loved him before kicking him off, she says she did love him, he says “k”, they hug and then it’s blessedly over.

Lee Again, Seriously

  • Rachel says, “I’ve watched the tapes now so fuck you, Lee,” and then it’s blessedly over.

Adam, For Some Reason, So By Default Also Matt

  • Rachel tells America they didn’t get to see the good stuff with these two, but we still don’t care.

F*ckin FRED Oh My God What A Waste

  • Fred is still hurt (AS AM I) that Rachel couldn’t grow up and let him be the beautiful hunk of man that he is and was and always will be.

Bloopers

  • For me, this is easily the most interesting part of the show, for it gives us a tiny glimpse into the untouched world behind the scenes of The Bachelorette. Things break. People fall. Dean sticks a nasty wad of gum behind his ear for his confessional, full-on Violet Beauregarde style. Dead Eric looks even more corpsely as the fake light taped to the ceiling above him falls. It is all so eadearingly real, which all the more reminds us that it’s all so unsettlingly fake.

Next Week

  • Next week we finally get to see the finale. Will Rachel pick the sleaze, the noncommit, or the dead man?
A self introduce

I used to study at commercial design , but i realized that “ I love to draw , I want to see my drawing moving ..being alive .I want to draw my own characters” . After talking with my family , they decided to give me one year to learn more about how to draw( base skills /  traditional art ) so that I can get into the art college I want .

Basically I do a few things a day

Studying / Practicing drawing (at home or drawing studio)/ Taking care of my little bro (I love kids , and he is really cute but i want to kick him out of the house sometimes KIDS)

I have more free time at night , usually watching cartoons , reading books and fanfic , doodling or talking to my friends during this time

At the weekends or long vacations , hanging out with friends or being lazy at home are my fav .But during this tough time….the best option is learning / improving how to draw better at drawing studio

the compliment and encouragement always make people happy , i am happy that there are people love my doodling/arts and like me , i know i am improving and working hard , it’s what i deserve …?

I like to , i try to be optimistic as much as i want to be

it’s what i need to get through and conquer and i will try my best to do it 

here is a song i really love , it keeps me delight and happy :D

it’s time to study again T-T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

work thoughts

I have so many little sheets of paper with stuff written on them, here we go

-all my friends/mutuals should know that my text hearts (<3) are No Romo.  I love my friends!  but I’m not flirting with anyone so…pls take them platonically.

-the first step to not having anxiety about a distressing situation seems to be learning to bear it.  at work and in social situations, I’ve been slowly getting better at just being uncomfortable and experiencing it fully and accepting it.  it sucks and it’s real hard but I’m not full-on miserable as often?  so that’s nice.

-the other day I was trying to remember ryan gosling’s name and the first thing my brain coughed up was “Reynold Duckberg”

-I need a haircut so bad, ugh

-I like to picture myself in this one clothing commercial alongside its immaculately-dressed + made-up models.  not in like, a bitter way, I just think it’s funny?  the theme of the commercial is “come as you are” or something and everyone at this sexy party has long, slender arms and perfect hair and smiles that aren’t quite wide enough to be inelegant.  and then also toasty’s there, wearing pajama pants and a waffle weave mens’ shirt

-I don’t think I’m being clever pointing out a lack of realism in a clothing commercial of all things, but I’m amused by the idea that there are people who really spend their alone time in their artsy studio apartments looking photogenic and perfectly dressed.  that said, if they’re out there more credit to them.  I hope you’re having fun at your sexy elegant parties.

-you do not have to lie to compliment someone’s art–I don’t care how young or inexperienced or “””cliche””” they are.  look for their potential, find what pieces you think are cute or appealing or funny, and don’t be backhanded about it.  and unless they want a full critique, you don’t have to tell them what’s bad about it either.  there’s plenty to be said for positive reinforcement!

-I never lie when complimenting someone’s art.

-”If you see her in the street/walking by herself/talking to herself/grumbling at herself/swearing at herself–”

-the keys to easily understanding someone with a heavy accent or speech impediment seem to be 1. exposure and 2. relaxing.  Focusing Real Hard and getting freaked out unfortunately just makes it harder, in my experience.

-I like the fact that when a story mentions that someone was “shyly biting their lip” or whatever, they can specific lower lip but they don’t have to–it’s assumed.  but just for kicks, the next time you see that, you should imagine them biting their upper lip instead. :>[ 100% story improvement + laugh factor.

-the word “consternation” doesn’t seem to have any remaining grammatical forms in English?  no one ever says “I’m consternated” or “that was very consternating”.

I know what commercial you mean, and my husband was pissed about it. (We've had similar discussions about the commercials which put gendered rolls on cooking and laundry ext). My husband has always used lotion and has gotten some snide comments about it from coworkers. They feel like shit when he tells them he has eczema and keeps hydrated to help prevent outbreaks (plus he occasionally uses medicated lotion). Thing is, he feels he shouldn’t have to have a medical reason,it is general self care!

I think the reason Dakota didn’t think much about it is because he does manual labor and needs his hands to be calloused and rough so he doesn’t hurt himself. But it was hard to get him to understand that there’s nothing inherently wrong with taking care of your skin in a normal context and that it’s tiring to constantly see feminine things mocked and demonized and to see men who do feminine things to be made fun of.

Hot Chocolate Kisses

Request: Anonymous. Do you take CasxReader request??? If so could you please make one about how y/n and cas are just hanging at the bunker and y/n is drinking hot chocolate and y/n burns their tongue and cas heals it by kissing and and and fluff or smut whichever really … I was drinking hot chocolate and that just happened so it came to mind ;//; thanks i love your blog btw
A/N: I didn’t think this needed a whole lot. Just a simple, sweet Cas fic.<3


It was the middle of December, and freezing. You had told the boys that there was NO WAY that you were leaving the bunker to go on some hunt. The cold was something that you despised. At the moment, you were lounging in the living room, watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The Jim Carrey version. You were just past the part where the Grinch wrapped up the Cindy, and decided to go make some hot cocoa on the commercial break. That was just about the only winter thing you could get behind.

You were careful carrying it back to the living room and setting it down on the coffee table. Once you were comfortable on the couch, you picked up your drink. Without thinking, you sipped it, thus burning your tongue. “Ow. Ow. Ow.” You whined, setting it down.

“Are you injured?” Cas appeared next to you, worry written on his face.

You gave him a small smile. “I burnt my tongue.”

“Would you like me to heal it?” Your cheeks turned pink. You’d always found Cas extremely attractive. Nodding, you thought he would simply touch your forehead like he always did. However, you were pleasantly surprised when he leaned forward, kissing you ever so gently. It took you a moment to register what was happening.

Leaning forward a bit, you felt the burn on your tongue fade, making you smile into the kiss. Looking him in the eyes, you chuckled. “I’ve wanted to kiss you for awhile now.”

Cas smiled at you, his eyes lighting up. “As have I.” He admitted. “Would you object to me staying here with you?”

You shook your head. “I think I’d like that.” You grinned. He moved so you could lean against him, his arm around you. There was a throw covering the two of you. His free hand was holding one of yours.

S.S. Sabriel Meta

I’ve been mulling over this again since there seems to be so many in the Sabriel tag who ask “Why do you ship it?”. With the Sabriel Big Bang approaching I thought I’d go over it again.

I see the question a lot and I can understand why one would first ask because this is not a ship that is easily diagnosed in the show. I certainly didn’t see it the first time around, but now I ship it more than Destiel. I tend to ship it so hard that I get angry when it’s done ‘wrong’ (but I try not to fault others for their preferences so I rarely mention it, just appreciate the good times.).

I will quickly mention that the show Supernatural is primarily Dean’s Point of View. And I’m not going to delve into great detail of Gabriel/Sam moments in the show but I’m going to point out some evidence as well as how it can fit into a Sabriel mind set. I’d like to point out the moments for the 4 episodes Gabriel was in.

  • Tall Tales: Sam and Dean meeting the janitor was from Sam’s point of view, and even from Sam’s point of view it appears that Sam is all cheery, even flirty with Gabriel. Normally Sam is to the point and comforting with victims but since it was Sam’s point of view he was still very chatty and it’s not hard to imagine Sam toned down any flirting when relaying the story to Bobby.

  • Mystery Spot: What it all boils down to is Gabriel was trying to teach Sam a lesson because he cares about Sam getting hurt. Keep in mind he was still “the trickster” then and was trying to stay in witness protection. He didn’t do it in a nice way and he didn’t do it in a way that worked, but he did try and something about that effort is very important. He took over 3 months of time to try to tell Sam that Dean was going to die and in his own way trying to harden Sam like he did to losing his own brothers. Prepare him for being alone. I don’t think Gabriel did it right, but he did it for deeper reasons than he let on at the time.

  • Changing Channels: The rim joke. The eye contact. Sam wanted to talk to Gabriel. Did you notice Gabriel looking more at Sam before he would even answer any questions while in the ring of fire? (did I just realize a song parallel to this? Oh yes I did~) Gabriel was extra bitter for Sam making the wrong choices and setting Lucifer free. His rage is clear in the humiliating commercials and hitting Sam in the balls. Rage is a funny thing and you will be more pissed off at someone you care about than some ass hole who bumped into you. Gabriel did have more verbal lashing with Dean, but Sam was never ignored.

  • Hammer of the Gods: Gabriel saved Sam (, Kali, and Dean) from Lucifer. Now, Gabriel’s speech is super SUPER SAD important. He doesn’t talk about the deities. He talks about the humans. He’s loyal to the humans, He talks about them being flawed. He talks about how they try to do better, and how they forgive. No one made Gabriel side with humans. Dean guilted Gabriel into helping because of family, but I don’t think Gabriel did it for the deities. I feel that all of those descriptions pointed to Sam. And if that doesn’t at least hint to some relationship than I can’t describe it any better.

  • Meta Fiction: Made me boil in rage and it’s not part of the meta. Until proven otherwise, Gabriel there was a fake.

Now, there are several key elements that make this pairing so volatile and yet so intrinsically perfect.

  • Tragedy

  • Heartwarming

  • Choices

  • The Red Oni, Blue Oni

First and foremost tragedy. It is tragic that nothing worked in these two’s favor. Tragic that Sam didn’t listen to Gabriel and tragic in Gabriel’s 'death’ (this is heavily debated and we’re not touching that can of worms). They are almost completely different people with paralleling pasts and under circumstances beyond their control. They never had a relationship built on trust and duty like Dean and Castiel. They have a relationship built on a mute understanding. Something built on actions rather than words. Something unspoken and distant. Something I think should have been explored long ago but it will never be told because it’s not Supernatural’s focus. (A tragedy indeed)

Heartwarming because, for some reason, Sam wanted to talk to Gabriel in Changing Channels. After killing Dean over 100 times and putting Sam through hell, Sam didn’t come off as bitter or vengeful towards Gabriel. Now, I can’t think of anyone else that Sam has given that sort of slack to. And Gabriel, for as angry as he’d been in Changing Channels, as hurt that he was that Sam didn’t listen to him, he saved the day and died his heroic death. There’s something sentimental about these moments, a sort of silent reaching out that they both try but ultimately fail in. 

Choices are very important in seasons 4 and 5. If Sam had chosen a different path. If Gabriel had chosen different words. These what-if scenarios are something that tug at my heart. This ties in with the tragedy of it all. What if this had been a bit different, is a question that inspires new stories and reasoning. This gives the ship a very valuable element of tangibility. Because all of the pain and the hurt can be moved and maybe soothed at least a little bit with just a few tweaks. It’s a great big pile of dramatic irony that only the viewers can see.

Red Oni, Blue Oni are a trope I have found particularly with my own flavor of ships. You could also say ’opposites attract’. Two different people often work very well together. The Red Oni is the fiery, impulsive, and extrovert person who gets passionate at a moment’s notice; Gabriel. The Blue Oni is the composed, cool introvert person who thinks logically first before he acts on emotion; Sam. They can work off of each other nicely or clash heads when they can’t agree on how to do something. Sam and Gabriel seem to have this same effect in different ways. I notice how Dean and Gabriel can clash near the end because they’re both Red Oni, and it takes Sam as the grounding force to actually communicate with Gabriel.

All in all, these dynamics flow and swirl in a way that help and hinder them both. Whether or not you ship them, you have to admit that there is something unspoken there. There is something deeper between Sam and Gabriel. Simply saying they’re “crack-shipped” or “Sam needs an angel too” is not the reason so many people ship them. Breaking down their elements makes them very different from Destiel. And because of those complications I grow to love the ship every time I think upon it.

The possibilities for what they could have been lingers on the tongue far longer than one expects them to. It’s not an easy ship; it’s not simple. It’s not supposed to be. It hurts a lot. But the possibilities stir the imagination and that’s one reason I ship it so damn much. I will go down with his ship and I try to make it float again, even if the canon refuses me.

As much as I like Dr. Who, I think this whole female Doctor thing is going to be a big failure. And it’s not because it’s a female Doctor, it’s because the majority of people who care about this kind of stuff tend not to actually consume the media they demand changes. The Sims 4 allowed for gender non-binary options when creating a Sim after a patch, but even though EA doesn’t release sales figures, the data I did find points to a decline in sales. Marvel’s comic sales have been steadily plummeting and the higher ups attribute that to the social justice. The Ghost Busters movie was a commercial failure. The thing about those who seek cultural hegemony and occupying spaces is that they demand to have their ideology on whatever media it may be, marketers see potential for profit in that and start pandering, but that doesn’t translate in sales. Because the point isn’t consuming and supporting the media and companies that spread their message. The point is creating the perception that the message is omnipresent and unanimous and eventually convincing people and changing their minds. This isn’t even a crazy tinfoil conspiracy theory, this is basic bitch cultural Marxism and post-modernism. A quick glance at the main theorists’ work will give ground to this conclusion.

daystar8  asked:

You're Water the Roots AU makes me happy because I'm just glad someone like Shouta would be supporting Izuku, I don't think he's the type of person to sugar coat things so if he says something he probably means it, also being the first person to care about his wellbeing probably helps Shouta because someone Izuku looks up to.

Agreed. Shouta is brutal. He always delivers like it is, not because he’s trying to crush their dreams, but because the reality of it, it’s a serious business, a serious profession even if tied to the media circle and commercialism. But people can and will get hurt, the good guys don’t always win, and not everything is black and white. 

I figured by the end of the school year, both Katsuki and Izuku would still look up to All Might as their hero, but it’s Shouta they strive to become like.
