I’m probably going to regret posting this, but …

I’ve seen a number of posts about how “Albus and Scorpius are only 14 in the play! They’re not old enough to know if they like boys yet! Maybe JKR has ~plans~ for them to get together later on????”

Look, I get it. Scorbus has become my secondary OTP in the past few months (Wolfstar has the #1 place in my heart forever). I love those boys, and I want them to love each other, but let’s not fool ourselves about JKR’s intent.

The bulk of the play takes place in 2020. That’s the future – the more progressive world we’re all supposed to be working towards and looking forward to. If Albus and Scorpius are old enough at 14 to know/think they might like a girl, then they are old enough to know/think they might like a boy.

JKR doesn’t ship it. Sorry, but she doesn’t. Scorose is probably the endgame she imagines. Scorbus probably wasn’t even on her radar during the writing of the play (which I don’t believe she actually had a whole lot to do with, beyond outlining and approving). The best we can hope for is for her to Dumbledore in another LGBT character or two after the fact somewhere down the line.

We need to stop making excuses for JKR’s lack of LGBT representation. She doesn’t care about us enough to represent us, and that’s just how it is. It’s fair to be angry about that, but we need to love ourselves and not keep grasping and straws and imagining that she’s sending us secret coded messages. We are an afterthought to her, at best.

so for day 6 of @somekindalady‘s barrifa week (which i’m atrociously behind in), consider this:

  • barret being an excellent baker (it’s one of the many reason why his late wife, myrna, fell in love with him), but ever since the corel incident, he stops.
  • post doc, more confident now that he has a new arm, he decides to start baking again, and it’s just so happens that marlene’s eighth birthday is near.
  • when tifa enters the kitchen to tell him that the birthday party guests arrived, she’s surprised by the sheer number of stuff barret made. she couldn’t even see the table or the counters.
  • barret notices her looks and asks her “what? it’s not enough?”
  • tifa answers “it’s enough to feed a small army” 
  • when barret told her to let the party’s food on him, she didn’t expect all of this.
  • needless to say, everyone is all over it. their friends, the party’s guests, marlene and tifa.
  • (barret may or may not have gotten a few propositions from the single parents accompanying their kids. though it’s not anything new and when they see tifa deliberately kissing barret’s cheek, they back off). 
  • later on, tifa asks barret to teach her how to bake since it wasn’t her strongest point, thinking about recreating the cakes her mother used to bake for her in her birthdays (she could remember the one her mother made for her eighth birthday, and strangely enough, it was the same cake barret made for marlene today).

So I finally got around to editing all the pictures I wanted to post of my trip to Korea. Turns out I have around 50 to share so I’m making a Korea series tag ^^

One of the risks of being quiet is that the other people can fill your silence with their own interpretation: You’re bored. You’re depressed. You’re shy. You’re stuck up. You’re judgmental. When others can’t read us, they write their own story—not always one we choose or that’s true to who we are.

Inmate #0801, [interrogation video]

Found in BL/ind archives, shows footage of 20-year-old Gerard Way, who would later turn into the infamous rebel leader known as Party Poison, interrogated after being taken into custody by S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W operatives for refusing to wear his BLI headphones at the appropriate times and levels. Way claimed that the daily broadcasts were “unnatural” as he continued to show disinterest and even laugh through the interrogation. Many experts say this is the event that sparked the rebellion that would make it’s mark on Battery City history.

  • same person ten minutes later:holy shit

I just really liked how Michael (aka the rageguy) was wearing all pastels and Gavin was wearing black and madly screaming all over the place. 10/10 fashion on today’s Go.
