the ones who see things differently


Okay, so I see a lot of things with humans on spaceships and the captain beig thoroughly confused by all their needs or lack thereof, but the other day I realised why don’t I see ones where the human is the captain?

Here’s the thing, the right human would make an AMAZING captain, think about it. We’re great at adapting to different peoples needs [because we as a species have so many different needs from person to person] there could be one species that say for example one species can only handle certsin colours, human!cptain would fucking paint the spaceship themselves to make sure it was the right colours. Say another couldn’t handle shouting, human!captain would murder anyone who dared raise their voice to this poor alien. There would be loads more that I can’t think of, but my point is that we have so many different needs that we’d just be super used to it, cant handle certain noises, that’s cool I had an autistic friend once who had that problem, it’s fine. Loud noises physically/mentally hurt you, I totally get that, my dad had ptsd and loud noises used to trigger him, I’ll make sure no one shouts at you. Human!Captain is the best captain these aliens have ever had, because they get them, they can adapt, because even if their particular need isn’t something they’ve had to deal with before they know the importance and that it is not something they choose or can be fixed, because we as a species deal with so many different issues both mental and physical and know that they’re all unique. [we’re not all so great at it at the moment, but I’m hopeful for future us]

Anyway, not just that; going for the whole pack bonding thing: Human!Captain would be fiercely loyal to the entire crew, maybe they’d be in a situation where it seems impossible for everyone to get out alive, human!captain is fully invested in getting everyone out and making sure no lives are lost, their missions are almost always successes and even if the mission fails they always make sure the entire crew gets out alive and the whole ship loves them.

anyway, not very well written but i think you get my point. I’m posting earlier than usual today but i’ll probably be back to posting uber late again tomorrow, see you then :]

skam is ending & i know the panic attacks will come later, but for now i have to write this. skam has meant so much to me & given me characters to love and relate to when i thought i was alone with my mental illnesses. not only that, the fandom,, holy shit, you have taught me so much & it has been, and will continue to be for as long as i stay, an absolute pleasure to talk to you, hear about your ideas and heacanons and learn to see things from different perspectives ! you are all totally amazing, thank you for being you ! 
du er ikke alene og jeg stoler på dere ♡

Louis does come off a little bitter in that interview (to me anyway). I've always felt especially watching old footage of him and Harry that he was a little jealous of H hence the snarky comments in some earlier interviews.

I don’t know about bitter but I didn’t think it was a nice thing to say. I think it’s great he is so open about his insecurities. It’s always great when a celeb shows their ~imperfections. But the comparison he made between him and Harry is… well I feel like I see it differently than the ones who act like he’s some sort of an underdog. I can’t see anyone from the world’s biggest boyband as an underdog.

They all are really privileged, and Louis saying some of those things would be ridiculous to most artists making their debut albums. He DM’d Steve Aoki and ended up making music with him. How many people can do that? He got to debut his solo career at the X factor final (obviously it was a sad day and he was so brave to do it, but the point is not everyone gets an opportunity like that).

People always jump to say things are easier for Harry and he gets more opportunities (basically what Louis said too) but I think what they ignore is that Harry has worked hard for it.

Louis wrote a lot for 1d but he mostly worked with 1d’s writing team. Harry wrote with others too. I don’t know if people listened to the podcast where the guy who wrote wmyb basically talked about how Louis was towards him and how Harry understood the industry better than the rest. All these things matter when people think about who they want to work with. Harry clearly knew he wanted to go solo, to try acting. He’s been networking, making contacts, being professional etc. (I remember an anon telling how the 1d guys were annoying to work with on set because they kept playing around and didn’t take things seriously - but Harry was professional and clearly wanted to get the work done. That kind of things matter. As funny as something is to the fans people like working with someone who’s easy to work with.) And all that pays off. Louis himself says he never wanted to go solo before. Of course it affects the current situation too.

And obviously, stage presence and popularity matter when it comes to this. Even Liam who is very confident on stage is very different performer than Harry is. Same with Niall. They will of course have different opportunities and careers as solo artists.

I hope this makes some sense lol.

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes — The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules — you can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things — They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” — Steve Jobs

im getting so emotional over that article louis is so so wonderful and i wanna fight the world for being so shite to him

I think what hit a lot of people, louies especially, with this article was that we always knew that Louis has been disrespected in regards to his talent. It’s one thing to scream about it into the void and then its a completely different reality “hearing” him say it. I can’t even begin to imagine how it must have felt going through the x factor and seeing everyone else get more lines than him. How the fuck was he not going to develop some form of complex from that? It breaks my heart to think that he felt as if he had to over-compensate in other ways because doubted the amount of talent he has. I want to throttle every single person who ever made him feel less than he deserves. That boy is the human embodiment of starlight and I will be damned if someone tries to diminish that again.    


To give credit where credit is due, ‘World Enough And Time’ was phenomenal on design and plot story. Please watch Christel Dee and Brian Minchin discuss the production and the different elements involved. I’m very grateful for Brian Minchin and his service to Doctor Who. It is such a special thing to see how far he and Steven Moffat brought this show. Support DW: The Fan Show by watching this. It is quite fun anyway! 

P.S. They mention ‘Twissy’. Some of the artwork we’ve been seeing on Tumblr has been featured on this show. Thank you for choosing them, Luke!

Did you see the maeve change? It completely screws over anyone who actively plays her and yet doesnt actuallt do anything for her

I have to first state that I don’t play enough Maeve to say that I’ll immediately feel the difference in the dagger drop, but I can absolutely see where making the drop and subsequently the arc of the throws will mess up her gameplay.

I will however openly say that them making Retribution now work through Maeve’s ult is absolute horsecrap.  I don’t care if it was a bug or not, it was the one and only thing in the game that provided any kind of counterplay to that absolutely overpowered garbage ability.  This means a passive ability that requires zero input, requires zero skill to use, has no risk, and yields nothing but rewards can now freely run slip-shod over four separate characters.  And I’ll say it again for good measure:

Retribution revealing stealth completely is actually a bug and they have made no attempt to fix it since Lex was released.

I feel for Maevers right now, I really do.  This, them shackling Skye to the floor after already breaking her legs, breaking Evie’s staff in half, hell– even the Ash change.  The Ash change is completely asinine and runs counter-current to the intent of a close range brawler.

Why is a close-range flak cannon user now going to be dependent on accuracy and skillshots?

There’s maybe one or two things in the Balance section on this patch that even remotely make a lick of sense.  I am openly encouraging people to go the fourms and the patch notes thread and leave your feedback.  Get it in writing where you stand on these changes:

I’m in a difficult position in regards to the Essence issue, as well– as a Tier 3 Founder for the game I’ve never had an issue getting Essence or having enough Essence to outright buy all of the cards and legendaries for a new champion, but I absolutely empathize and understand how hard they’re making it to get Essence and gold now.  Their discussion on the stream was nothing but a closed loop with a noncommital answer and this is one of the biggest topics that they need to tackle with the community, like, five days ago.

That, and ejecting this entire balance pass out of an airlock and into the corona of a star.

danieliph  asked:

Are you like out of the closets to your parents???

no, for a few reasons

a) I do believe that “demisexual” fits me best but I’m still trying to figure out the little bits and pieces of things, if that makes sense

b) demisexuality is one of the lesser known ones, in the country I live in, being homosexual is still seen as a taboo. even teenage relationships are most often frowned upon by adults (it’s a whole thing). and a lot of people don’t even know the entire concept of being homosexual let alone asexuality or that spectrum. so, I am almost 100% sure that my parents won’t really get the entire concept of it, even if I explain.

and finally, c) I don’t really see it as that big of a deal. pretty much the only difference I see with my friends who identify as straight cis, is that I don’t get “crushes” or find some random person sexually appealing (not that there’s anything wrong it)

all of that said, I have explained a bit of it to two of my close friends and they were pretty okay cool about it. :)

The girl who laughs too loud. Oh god, you could tell her to shut up before she even starts but there’s something about that high pitched laugh. It’s not a pretty laugh but it’s a laugh you’ll remember.

The girl who smiles all the time at literally everything, who practices it in the mirror at night when everyone’s asleep or in the middle of the day when no one’s really paying attention to her.

The girl who journeys alone. She’s not ugly, but she’s not beautiful. It makes her feel worthless sometimes, like love will never come her way like she expects it to on a midnight train. She wants the full experience, the love letters and chocolates and the lifetime together until you’re old and senile. She’d be the best girlfriend. She would be all in.

The girl who breaks her own heart from time to time right on schedule. At least once every month, there’s one bad thought. Or a bad encounter with a friend or a good cry that feels like the end of the world.

The girl who thinks she’s the only one who is different and that no one else could possibly understand her. She can’t wait to go to New York and do New York things. Maybe a little Paris too.

This girl paints pictures in her mind everyday, to the point where it feels like she’s actually seeing them first hand. This girl is worth every single page.

One of the most amazing things that can happen is finding someone who sees everything you are and won’t let you be anything less. They see the potential of you. They see endless possibilities. And through their eyes, you start to see yourself the same way. As someone who matters. As someone who can make a difference in this world.

That works...

So I was having a conversation w/ a friend about interesting DnD moments, he decides to tell me about the one player who fulfilled his role a little differently.

Him: So the guy creates a Half Orc Rogue, okay?

Me: O-Kay… Different but it could work…

Him: The thing is, he puts no points into Stealth.

Me: Uhh….

Him: Instead, he only does intimidation. He cranked the points really high. So whenever he needed to perform a stealth check, he’d just walk up to the people he’s sneaking by and yell “YOU CANT SEE GROG!!!” and because of his intimidation points, the people would just respond in fear, “I can’t see you! I can’t see you”.

Lars’ face when he realized that these Gems, who saved his life, have spent their own lives under threat of execution for being different. Have spent their lives being afraid because of who they are, just like him, except no one was even going to try and kill him for baking or being “uncool” or saying the “wrong” thing.

This is his paradigm shift. You can see it on his face. He’s found a reason to be brave.

You know where I called “bullshit” lately, in the context of Dean/Cas? When I was rewatching “The Rapture” a month or two ago - when we met Jimmy Novak. Because Jimmy Novak is a character that HAS NO SEXUAL TENSION OR CHEMISTRY WITH DEAN WHATSOEVER. None. Nada. Their interactions are completely flat. If anything, he would punch him in the face and run away, but it’s not even personal, he would punch anybody. There is no spark between Misha and Jensen when they are Dean and Jimmy. Which means that the romantic tension of Dean and Cas is of course helped by the natural chemistry the actors have, but it means that Misha IS ABSOLUTELY CAPABLE OF ACTING AGAINST JENSEN, AND NOT MAKE IT ABOUT UST. Which means, this romantic/sexual tension is not Misha and Jensen, it is a part of Cas’ character and his relationship with Dean. It’s an acting CHOICE. Dean has that with every version of Cas that is still Cas. BAMF!Cas. Human!Cas. Emmanuel!Cas. Crazy!Cas. Endverse!Cas. God!Cas. He doesn’t have that with Lucifer!Cas or Leviatan!Cas, it is harder to see though, because these are predatory characters that are charismatic villains. But Jimmy is the only character that really has NOTHING to do with Cas. He is a different person. And the chemistry is gone, like it was never there. But the moment Misha becomes Cas again (even brainwashed one) it’s back. Like magic. Kudos to Misha for his acting, middle finger to everybody (actors, producers) who has been gaslighting us for the last nine seasons, telling us we’ve been seeing things.

'American Gods': Bryan Fuller Explains That Wild and "Empowering" Sex Scene
"What we wanted to achieve there is for an audience who might not necessarily be accustomed to seeing two men having sex, to recognize it as a beautiful thing," Fuller tells THR.

“To portray Salim and the Jinn in a way that’s sex positive for a gay man who comes from a country where homosexuality is punishable by death and you can be thrown off of a rooftop,” he explains, “it was very important to us to look at Salim’s story as a gay man from the Middle East whose sexual experience was probably relegated to back alley blowjobs and didn’t have an intimate personal sexual experience. In the book, Salim blows the Jinn in the hotel, and then he’s gone. It was important for us in this depiction to have Salim drop to his knees and prepare to achieve sex the way he’d been accustomed to, and the Jinn lifts him off of his knees and kisses him and treats him much more soulfully and spiritually to change his perception of who he is and what his sexual identity has become. That felt like it was empowering in a different way, showing a protagonist as the one who is being penetrated. That comes with all sorts of preconceptions of gender roles and what it is to be a gay man at the same time.”

“What we wanted to achieve there is for an audience who might not necessarily be accustomed to seeing two men having sex, to recognize it as a beautiful thing,” the writer continues, “as opposed to ‘Ooh, Alec Baldwin is kissing that old man!’ Or, 'Whoopi Goldberg is touching that woman’s hand, what does it mean?’ I’ve been seated in that audience as a gay person, and resented the cringing and cajoling and jeering of audiences, and wanted to show a Middle Eastern gay kid who might find this [show] somehow and see that scene and realize there are people out there who don’t think he’s an abomination.”

In light of an unfortunate display of ignorance I witnessed today, let me take a moment to make something blatantly clear, for anybody that needs it:

-making fun of someone for using a fidget spinner, to the point of them displaying obvious embarrassment and shame, is disgusting. 

-when you say things like “Oh my GOD, I hate those spinners! They’re so annoying, what are they even for haha” you are being willfully ignorant. Spinners are marketed towards people with anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADD/ADHD, Autistic people, and many other people with brains different from yours that need an outlet to focus, relax, relieve sensory-related issues, and many other things that yours does automatically. Most of the ones I see advertised even specify “For anxiety/stress/ADHD/Autism/etc”

-Making fun of someone for other behaviors such as rocking, hand flapping, echolalia, hair twirling, skin picking, hair pulling, etc is in fact, also a shitty thing of you to do. It’s also unnecessary, cruel, and humiliates the person who is doing those things.

-Don’t make fun of people who use fidget spinners. Don’t make fun of people who stim. I don’t give a rat’s ass if you think it’s unnecessary, or it “looks weird” or it “looks gross.” Don’t do it. You KNOW what you’re doing. I know what you’re doing. I’ve had it, I’m done.

Harry's interview on Quotidien
  • I: Can you hear me?
  • H: Yes
  • I: Welcome to Paris!
  • H: Thank you
  • I: How are you? Can you answer in French?
  • H: Good! A little bit. A tiny bit. Très bien et toi ?(very good and you?)
  • I: Very good, thank you. We start our interviews with “can you give us your five favourites words in English or French. Or a French sentence”. Someone told me you knew a French sentence.
  • H: Comment vous faites un café si délicieux? (How do you make such a delicious coffee?)
  • I: OK, that’s good.
  • H: That’s all I have.
  • I: Do you say it very often?
  • H: No... Yes
  • I: What does France mean to you? Is it something, someone etc...?
  • H: Best people I’ve known... I think her, *shows a fan* I guess. Fabien Barthez.
  • I: Yes, Fabien Barthez. Harry, you’re 23 years old and you’re one of the best known pop-star in the world. Everybody has expectations with your new album and single Sign Of The Times. Why did you choose that song? This is not what people were expecting.
  • H: I think I wanted to.. I've always liked music that made me feel something. You know I think writing it I could feet something I wanted to bring it out. I think it's a good indicator for me of what the album is to me. That's why I wanted to go with that first.
  • I: Billboard wrote that the single was "one of the more ambitious opening statements in pop this decade". Not bad, isn't it?
  • H: Thanks!
  • I: Do you have friends working at Billboard?
  • H: I don't know anyone at Billboard.
  • I: When we listen to the song we think of David Bowie, Queen, who else did you think of?
  • H: I mean, I think everyone, anything, any song you've ever listened to growing up or throughout your life or you've enjoyed, inspired you. There are a lot of different things. I wanted to just write and see what came out. I didn't know what I sounded like to make an album. So this process was as interesting for me as I think it will be for people listening to the album for the first time.
  • I: Do you know French singers other than Serge Gainsbourg? That's a tricky question.
  • H: I know Woodkid. He directed my music video.
  • I: Why him?
  • H: I think his videos are amazing, he's a really talented guy and I love French people so I worked with him.
  • I: When you're in Spain, do you say that you love Spanish people?
  • H: No!
  • I: It seems like everything has been easy...
  • H: Great tie.
  • I: You think so? It's French.
  • H: It's not a Spanish tie, isn't it?
  • I: Can I see your loafer? Oh yes! What is the brand? That's not French, isn't it? It's Italian.
  • H: No.
  • I: That's from the European Union!
  • H: Probably yeah.
  • I: It seems like everything has been easy for you, is it true?
  • H: Was what simple?
  • I: Your life, everybody wants a life like yours, with One Direction...
  • H: I mean, I feel very lucky to be able to make music, I feel very lucky to be able to make this, I feel very lucky today being in France and performing my song. I love this song. I can't complain.
  • I: What were the unpleasant things?
  • H: *thinking*
  • I: I don't know, say only one thing.
  • H: I think when you care so much about something, it's hard to get to the point where you feel like it's finished and it feels like you're adding and it never ends and it adds up. So I think the hardest part was getting into that point and be like "ok that's finished."
  • I: You said to the Rolling Stone magazine that most of the album was inspired by a woman. Really?
  • H: No I think, honestly, the album is much more about me than it is about anyone else. I think if I said the album is about a woman it kind of feels like, I don't know, I put a lot of work into this. I don't feel like it revolves around woman. It's a lot about me and things I've never said before. It's more about me.
  • I: How did you start with a boy band and end with a solo career? Is it complicated?
  • H: It's been a lot of fun. You know we were very lucky to get to do some amazing things and at the moment in our lives, we're in a time where everyone is trying their own thing and have a good time. It's been amazing to see everyone doing their own thing as well. If I can do as well as the others, it'd be amazing.
  • I: Do you call them everyday or text them? Do you use What's app?
  • H: I don't have that.
  • I: Why?
  • H: Yes we talk, absolutely. And everyone is bringing stuff out. It's been a lot going on. It's been a good time.
  • I: This is the album cover! Can you describe it? Why did you choose this picture?
  • H: Yeah. So, I don't know. I worked with photographer Harley Weir, I'm a massive fan of her work. And that's amazing and I was lucky enough to work with her. I felt like this was what I wanted.
  • I: Why is it pink? Why the water? Why your back? Why? It's beautiful but why is it pink?
  • H: I don't know, man!
  • I: Really? You don't know?
  • H: I don't know. I don't think I want...
  • I: Apparently pink is Rock'n'roll's colour.
  • H: Apparently so. I don't know. I think it means something to me and if it means anything to anyone else, I wouldn't want to take away from that by explaining it. I think the cool thing about stuff like photos and art is you can just leave it. You don't have to explain it.
  • I: Everybody sees what they want to see.
  • H: Yes exactly.
  • I: Have you seen this?
  • *video of people reacting to Harry's single*
  • I: Your fans record themselves while listening to the song for the first time. You can hear relevant analysis and apparently they all really liked it. Do you read what people say about you on social media? On Youtube, Twitter, Instagram? Do you use Instagram?
  • H: Yes I use it a little bit.
  • *The public disagrees with Harry*
  • H: Yes I use it a little bit. I mean I wish everyone was having as good time as the girl who was like that with her hands. That's what I do when I listen to the song.
  • I: Are you the one using your Instagram? Do you use your own fingers or someone else does it for you?
  • H: Yes, I do mine.
  • I: Do you still vote in Redditch?
  • H: In?
  • I: Redditch!
  • H: That's where I was born?
  • I: Yes.
  • H: I don't live in Redditch.
  • I: So you don't vote there. Where did you vote?
  • H: London, yeah.
  • I: What do you think of the Brexit? Welcome to Europe!
  • H: Thank you very much, thanks. I mean, I don't really comment on politics. To me, anything that brings people together is better than things that pull people apart. That's ... yeah.
  • I: Yet, you are in favour of equality of rights, men, women, gay people, straight people... That's politics.
  • H: I don't know. It doesn't feel like politics. I think stuff like equality feels much more fundamental. I feel like everyone is equal. That doesn't feel like politics to me.
  • I: Your fans are fetishists. They know all of your tattoos, piece of jewellery, they have heart attacks when you cut your hair. Right now you're playing with their feelings. Do you know that?
  • H: Oh ok.
  • I: Yes! What is your favourite tattoo?
  • H: I think... I have a.. probably. I don't know, actually.
  • I: Which one is the latest?
  • H: The latest is this one there. *shows Arlo* And this one. *shows Jackson*
  • I: Jackson? All of them?
  • H: Yes.
  • I: What's the story behind your haircut? How much did you spend on hair products with One Direction?
  • H: Yeah, like a lot. I used a lot, yeah.
  • I: You're in Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan's new movie.
  • H: Yes.
  • I: How did you do?
  • H: I auditioned.
  • I: Look at you there.
  • H: I am, that's me.
  • I: Yes.
  • H: I auditioned and it was great. It's going to be a really cool movie.
  • I: Harry, it feels like we know you since you're a baby. The whole world discovered you in 2010 on X Factor.
  • *video of Harry's X Factor audition*
  • I: You auditioned alone but Simon Cowell had an idea... he put you in a band with Zayn, Louis, Liam and Niall. You became One Direction. You found the name One Direction and you sold millions of albums. One Direction are soon considered as the new Beattles and you filled the biggest stadiums. The whole world was talking about you. When you go out we prayed for your eardrums. You became UK's pride. David Cameron is in one of your music videos, your sang for the Queen. But in 2015... bang! Zayn left the band, fans couldn't get over it. But don't worry, their favourite is now on the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine, he's in Christopher Nolan's new movie, he's Mick Jagger on SNL... What you don't know is that we've met in 2012. You were in France to promote an album and now I have questions. First one! When you're in a car and fans are all around you, do you see that?
  • *video of fans around a car*
  • H: I think I've actually lost my shoe there. When I got in the car... I got in the car and I was like "how many shoes do I have?" Yes I lost my shoe.
  • I: I have another question! Do you still do that before going on stage?
  • *video of Harry and Lou*
  • I: Can we do it?
  • H: No.
  • *does it anyway*
  • I: What is the weirdest question someone asked you?
  • H: I think it was actually a French interview. I got asked if I would pee in a sink... Yeah.
  • I: Ok, that's weird!
  • H: It was the first question, the first question.
  • I: It puts you in the mood.
  • H: Yeah.
  • I: What is the question you never want to be asked ever again? Did I asked you that question?
  • *Harry asks the public*
  • H: Which one? Oh crush.
  • I: What?
  • H: Crush.
  • I: Oh ok. I didn't ask it! Did you know that a French author wrote a novel about you. It's called "Styles", it's about his obsession with you. It's in French. You can translate it.
  • H: Oh! Is that true?
  • I: Yes it's true. He dedicated to you. It's called "Styles" and it's a really good book. Read it!
  • H: Thank you.
  • I: Thank you very much Harry Styles for coming tonight. His first eponymous album comes out on the 12th May. Thank you Harry Styles.
  • H: Thank you.
  • I: Have a safe journey home.
You know, people love to say that opposites attract. And maybe that’s why I tried so hard to make us work. The girl who measures two teaspoons of sugar to put in her tea and the boy with calloused palms, climbing every mountain he can because he likes the way the stars look when nothing is in their way. Frothy milk and adrenaline. We looked like idiots together. You at my charity dinners in a poorly tailored sport coat. Five o'clock shadow. Bad jokes. And me scaling the rock climbing wall with slippery hands. Two feet above ground. A loose cotton dress. But laughing. Both of us always laughing. At me and you and this stupid world for working in a way that let the two of us need each other so desperately. Opposites. You’re damn right they attract.
     But attraction and commitment were never the same thing. Maybe you always knew that. And that’s why you laughed. Because you knew that one day, your girl would stand on Everest. Scream to the stars. Drink her coffee black. But me, I’m still learning. Learning as you tell we want different things. Learning as you drop off every piece of myself I’ve left at your place, nothing folded, the toothbrush tangled with hairs. Learning as I sit here writing about the boy who bounced from cliff tops to see the stars and the girl whose feet never left the ground, whose eyes only ever knew how to watch him walk into clouds and disappear altogether.
