5

Well, let’s get this Fanfic Friday party started shall we? I’m super excited, so I am going to SUPER BRAVE and make my announcement of the project I’ve been working on for MONTHS now.

I’m in the raw data with making things do just what I want and it’s complex because I want a complex system that is simple to use haha SO…here’s what I am working on–and what I need help with from YOU!

A reminder for the girls with big plans

To all the girls with big dreams, who have been told that they are ‘too preoccupied with success’, or that they are ‘too selfish’ or ‘too ambitious’ - do not listen to the people who speak those words. If you love something that much, and will pursue it to the ends of the earth, do not give it up for anyone. Hold it close to your heart and understand that you are not obligated to dim your sparkle for anybody. In your life, there will always be people who tell you that you are too much or too little. They will say a woman is too assertive, or too reserved. They will say she feels too little or too much, that ambition is selfish. They may even be hurt or offended that you do not think the same. Yet at the end of the day, know in your heart that you are the only one who will ever know whether you are truly enough and that is what’s important. Go out there and smash the glass ceiling to pieces.

“It’s hard to believe that, in 2017, we still have to fight so hard for basic equitable support,“ said assistant captain Monique Lamoureux-Morando. "But when I think about the women who paved the way for our team – and when I see girls at rinks around the country who are dedicated to pursuing big dreams and look to us to lead by example – it’s well overdue for us to speak up about unfair treatment, even if it means sacrificing an opportunity to represent our country. We owe the next generation more than that. We owe it to ourselves to stand up for what is right.” - U.S. Women’s Hockey Team Will Not Play in World Championships, ESPNW

why the diversity among the lunar chronicles female characters is so important

a post that could be a million pages long but instead is kept short

  • iko is for every girl who loves makeup and fashion and boys but has been told for their entire lives that girls like this are vapid and shallow. girls who can be strong and friendly and brilliant and helpful but also want to look hot and kiss cute boys. iko is for all of the unapologetically girly girls to show them that there is nothing wrong with wanting to do ‘girl’ things, being a girl is nothing to be sorry for. 
  • cinder is for every girl who has never really liked to do things meant for ‘girls’ and instead loves male dominated fields. cinder shows all these girls that just because they would rather get dirty and not dress up that doesn’t mean that they aren’t worthy of love or even be friends with other girls. there’s nothing wrong with being a ‘tomboy’ and being a tomboy makes you no less of a girl. 
  • scarlet is for every girl that felt like she didn’t fit in, that never had many friends and for the girls that put their families first and take leadership roles. scarlet shows girls that just because they feel lonely now or don’t fit in now, they will find their place some day and they will find that group of friends that they would be willing to die for. scarlet shows girls that girls who take control can be ‘bosses’ not ‘bitches’ and girls can be in charge, girls can take on motherly, nurturing roles while being totally kickass at the same time. scarlet shows girls that just because they don’t have the same body type as everyone else it doesn’t mean they can’t be be beautiful. if you aren’t as skinny or petite as another girl, it doesn’t mean you aren’t just as beautiful as they are. scarlet shows girls the importance of a strong family, and that sometimes your family isn’t always the people who are related to you - scarlet shows girls that if your parents are awful to you you don’t have to love them, you can find family in those who love you. 
  • cress is for every girl with big dreams, who have suffered abuse, and dreams of boys, happily ever afters, and maybe isn’t the strongest physically. cress shows girls that just because you aren’t the strongest physically it doesn’t mean you can’t be strong in other ways. cress shows girls that they can be geniuses, that you can be a smart girl who also has dreams of balls and boys and pretty dresses. the amount you wish to find the man of your dreams and live the life of a princess in a fairy tale has nothing to do with your intelligence. cress is for the girls who suffer abuse, or who have been abuse victims to show them it has nothing to do with them and there is recovery available for them at some point, that they will be able to work through this and they will be okay
  •  winter is for girls who are known for nothing but their beauty, whose accomplishments and personalities are overlooked because of their looks, and who have a mental illness and are often judged for it. winter is for all the girls who because they’re pretty people can’t look past the appearance and assume things about them that aren’t true - winter is to show girls that being pretty has nothing to do with their accomplishments and what they are capable of. just because they’re pretty it doesn’t mean they’re dainty or vain, girls can be beautiful and strong. winter is for the girls whose mental illness is often seen as their entire personality, who are treated as weak for having a mental illness or who are overlooked because of it. winter is to show girls that just because they have a mental illness they are not entirely made of that, they are people outside of their illness and it is nothing to be ashamed of - strong girls can have mental illnesses and having one doesn’t make you weak. you are not your illness.

Ember! Ember! Ember!

Awwwww yeah!!!! I’ve been looking forward to this since I started this blog. I love Ember. She was my favorite character for a long time, and even though other characters have taken her place and Desiree is the one I consider my favorite full ghost, Ember is a very close second.

Now, Ember does have a “canon” backstory, but it’s Word of God and never actually talked about in the show. As such, I’m not gonna take it with a grain of salt when talking about her. It’s a decent backstory, but I’m gonna prioritize her song, since it’s something that’s actually in the show.

Then I don’t really care, just get him out of my hair, yeah
Let’s switch it up, get off my shoulder
I’ve had enough, can’t take it no longer
I’m over him I swear, I’m like yeah
You sighed as you looked out your bedroom window. You looked at your phone and tossed it on the bed you following in pursuit. You had just called your two best friends over, Wanda and Nat. You had joined the avengers team shortly after the battle in Sokovia. Being the newest member of the team the two girls had taken you under their wing and showed you the ropes. They helped you train, made sure you ate, and helped you get to know your fellow Avengers. Looking back now maybe if they hadn’t this whole mess could have been avoided but no matter how much it hurt you wouldn’t trade it for the world.
