they believe in it like we do

Ok, so the DCTV actors are so fed up with the trashy fandoms. And a few have spoken up.

David Harewood, Chyler Leigh, Candice Patton, Stephen Amell.

There are many actors in these shows that get harassed.

Chris Wood is a big one. Candice as well (stop with the racial slurs and calling Chris a slave owner). Katie Cassidy - who just lost her father. Have more sympathy people!

Separate the actor from the character - and by god watch the show. Plots exist for a reason - and so does character development - Chris gave his two cents and they still ignored it.

These people are human - not their characters. Just cause the actor gets in the way of your ship (canon or not - don’t send hate). These actors don’t control their plots. They may have input like Stephen, maybe Melissa or Chris (now), but most don’t. They are paid to play a part.

Believe me, as a Karamel…the current plot hurts..but they will reunite. That I’m certain. I want reiterate - NO HATE TO AMY! Don’t go fussing to Chris. We are a family and we will get through to the other side together.

And sending hate to a spouse/significant other - wrong!

Stephen gets that…Melissa and Chris do too. Leave their personal lives out of it, please.

They don’t have to share things, but they do. If you notice some never come online anymore. It’s this crap. You want content, then respect the stuff they give us.

And David as a friend and coworker to Chris and Melissa, he likes to share BTS on set. They are giving us pics of Chris again…and David turns off the comments because he doesn’t want to see your crap. Let this be a lesson.

As for Chyler, I know you wanted F** at ClexaCon, but don’t go bullying Chyler over it or the fact the F** left the show. F** told us why, so stop assuming stuff.

Online bullying is wrong. Just cause you are behind a computer screen and anonymous doesn’t mean you can’t be nice to people. At the end of the day, these shows are fictional. The characters are fictional. The actors are NOT. I get attachment to a ship or character - I’m there too. It helps you through tough times.

There are ways to make your dissatisfaction known without being a bully.

There…I had my say. And BULLIES WILL BE BLOCKED.

Do you know any interesting facts about the constellations??

The only relevant fact about constellations is that their names are not as arbitrary as we used to believe. We thought for centuries that they were just selected by the ancients the way we say clouds look like things now. The fact is we used to think very differently. Modern times have sped us up so the stars look motionless. The ancients viewed things over years, so they saw the stars move, fast, animated like movies at 1 frame per decade. It sounds absurd now but they watched movies in the stars, they saw the events and characters we’ve forgotten act out their stories in the sky. They saw the big dipper dip. They saw Canis bark. They saw attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.

All those moments have been lost in time… Like tears in the rain.

Doc, approach this carefully, it's kind of a big deal, try not to freak him out too much

Anti wakes up late that night as Dr. Iplier is reading by lamplight. “Why are you still awake?” Anti asks softly, pushing himself up into a sitting position. Already he can feel the difference of his accelerated healing.

Doc laughs and closes his book. “You’re the one in the hospital bed because some even crazier version of Wilford sliced open your side and shot you in the stomach, and you are worried about me?”

Anti nods.

“Thanks,” Dr. Iplier smiles and leans his elbows on his knees, closer to Anti. “Do you want to help me, Anti? There’s something you can do that will help me sleep better at night.”

Anti squeezes his hands into fists. “You think I’m crazy.”

No,” Doc says quickly. “No, but I think that you’ve found something about yourself that you didn’t know before. And sometimes when we find those things, we need help dealing with them.”

Anti shakes his head. “I don’t want to deal with it. I want it to go away.”

“Sometimes we don’t get that choice,” Doc sighs. He rubs his temple and gives Anti a tired smile. “But I believe you can do this.” Anti shakes his head again, but Doc isn’t done. “You could’ve laid there and given up in that other world or wherever you went. But you didn’t. You got up, and you found a way back.”

“That was…”

“That was strength like I’ve never seen before,” Doc interjects. “Except maybe in the Host.”

Anti closes his eyes. “Ya want me to ask his help with this.”

Doc nods. “Yes.. but most importantly, I just want you to be happy.”

Anti smirks and glitches a little. “Ah, quit with the mushy stuff. I’ll talk to the Host if ya want me to.” Doc smiles brightly, and Anti chuckles a little. “Now please go to bed and quit worrying about me fer five seconds.”

“Alright,” Doc stands and ruffles Anti’s hair. “I guess I can do that for you.” He turns out the light and walks to the door. “Goodnight, kid.”

He waits a moment more and then closes the door behind him. Anti closes his eyes. “Goodnight, Dad.”

also op’s view on feminism is wild like yes there sexism in many developing countries is important and its a lot to do with womens bodies but believe me theres trans women there too!! feminism is about fighting the gross manifestations of patriarchy that oppresses cis women, disenfranchises both trans men and women, and also harms cis men (especially gay men). we need solidarity not rivalry, we are fighting for the same cause

Epilogue

A lot of trauma survivors find themselves struggling with who they are after trauma. We’ve touched on this, but I’d like to go into it a little bit more.

 Trauma is messy and awful. There’s no argument about that. I’ve discussed how I dislike how society pushes the beautiful survivor trope on us. It can leave a lot of survivors feeling like they’re doing something wrong or weak because they aren’t where society thinks they should be. I fully support survivors, and don’t believe they have to come out better or kind. However, this isn’t to say that you can’t. For some, making good come out of what they went through is how they cope. If this isn’t you, that’s completely okay. There’s nothing wrong with you if you don’t have any goal and anyone that tells you that you need to “find the silver lining” is wrong. How you deal is ultimately up to you.

What you went through will never be okay, however, you can take your power back.

 Whether you’ve made it through the book or just came to the end because you needed it, I’m so glad you’re reading this.

I wish it didn’t have to come to an end because I feel there’s still so much to say but it’ll never all fit in a book. I’ve done my best to cover what I feel is important, but I know there’s a lot left unsaid.

I want to end with something important. Probably the most important part. So, please, read this next bit and take it in because I mean every word. It doesn’t matter who you are. This applies to you.

You are worthy. You are worth so much more than you could possibly think. You deserve respect and understanding and did not deserve what happened to you. What you went through was wrong, and I wish there was something I could do to change it.

Unfortunately, I can’t. What I will tell you is you aren’t alone. Whatever your trauma, you are valid. No matter the circumstances, it wasn’t your fault. No one had the right to do what was done to you.

I know it’s hard and scary at times. I know how difficult the struggle can be but I want to tell you that it’ll be okay. I truly believe that.

You shouldn’t be ashamed. You survived and continue to do so and I am so proud of every single one of you.

No matter how hard it gets, please remember you aren’t alone. We’re all in this together.

This is the epilogue. Feed back is appreciated as I believe this is probably the most important part. Is there anything you wish was said that isn’t?

anonymous asked:

do you think acxa and keith share a father? i imagine acxa to be over a hundred years old herself, given that we're meant to believe galra lifespans are short, and she seems to have been with lotor for a long time.

I have a really hard time reading Acxa as not a teenager. Even if galra lifespans are long like Alteans (which I also doubt) there’s the fact that Allura, from some dialogue about Kova in s3e7, is less than twenty-eight years old and a teenager/young adult, I can’t imagine she’s just going to stay a teenager for the next century. She grew up at a comparable rate to human babies from what we saw of the flashbacks with her and Alfor.

And I mean, Lotor himself is pretty clearly a teenager, so Lotor wouldn’t have been alive long enough for Acxa to be by his side that long. Throk even emphasizes how he and the other commanders have been by Zarkon longer than Lotor.

Personally I put Acxa as either the same age as Keith or maybe a year older. And, yeah, I think if we’re figuring they’re siblings they’re gonna be full siblings rather than half-siblings.

okay um, hi, so, you are literally the only other person I have seen say they wanted more of Victor skating??? which I think is weird that there aren't more?? because he is amazing, I mean, he didn't win 5 consecutive gold medals for nothing right?? and this is a weird question but do you like, watch all of the footage that we have of Victor skating sometimes?? like, skipping everything else because you just want to see him skate?? bc I do and idk if that's weird or- (sorry, i'm really awkward!)

THERE ARE SO MANY OF US! ♥♥ and yes vitya is SO amazing, i just can’t even think of a reason why they wouldn’t let us see him skate again!

and oh believe me, i most definitely do watch all of the vitya skating scenes more than is probably legal, healthy or appropriate…. so if it’s considered weird then i never want to stop being weird ♥ everything about vitya’s skating is so beautiful, the way he moves his hands, his expressions, the elegant way he moves and the hair swoosh, the everything ♥♥♥♥

anonymous asked:

Do you still think Uta is shady?

Hi! Well, Anon, let me ask you this instead: is there anyone in the whole fandom who actually thinks that Uta is not fishy? Especially after the latest omake batch…

…since he was confirmed to be that guy that Yomo met with a mask on?

Because I have, like, 3 different possibilities as to who Uta could be, but in the first place the fact he is so mysterious definitely signs that he’s sketchy as hell! :)

So yeah Uta is sketchy, shady, fishy and I do still believe he is important to the plot, if that was your question. :) Now is he related to the Nagaraj, to the sunlit garden, to V, the Washuus or something else, I can’t be certain, but there is definitely a reason he’s still so mysterious when we’re gradually getting answers!

Have a nice day Anon!

WITH GRATITUDE

In a world that feels increasingly unstable, confusing, and hate-filled, we continue to do extraordinary things every day. And it doesn’t have to be an extraordinary thing. Even the smallest thing that brings you joy is a huge victory against the injustices of the world. 

We get out of bed every day. We hug our pets. We laugh. We fall in love. We do meaningful work. We create supportive communities. We listen to music that makes us feel like someone else knows how we feel. We reach out to others so they don’t feel so invisible. We create. We take risks that make us feel alive. We speak up and speak out. We try, and sometimes we fail. We make funny things on the internet. And maybe most importantly, we continue to be kind.

I believe love can be felt and received even in the simplest, kindest word. Love exists between people who will never meet, and that can never, ever be taken away. I am grateful for all of you, and send so much love. Be kind, be kind, be kind. 

Learn to love being told you are wrong or being...

Learn to love being told you are wrong or being insulted. Every insult is an opportunity. Being insulted offers you an opportunity to practice decency and having a non-response internally. When we are easily upset it is because we are internally unstable and unrefined spiritually. Any defensiveness is a sign of failure. You can’t move forward if you are defensive. If you do not like a certain behavior in others, look within yourself to find the roots of what discomforts you. The conflicts we have with the outside world are often conflicts we have within ourselves. Criticism is no threat to your self-esteem or identity, but rather informs you. You can’t see clearly through defensiveness. You can get to a place where you see clearly; that place is zero defensiveness. Take any concept you believe in deeply and say out loud, and with full conviction, that your dearest belief may be totally flawed. Say, “There is no doubt that I could be wrong.” If you cannot do this, then you do not possess the idea, the idea possesses you. Change will never happen when people lack the ability and courage to see themselves for who they are. An intelligent person is never afraid or ashamed to find errors in their understanding of things. The best practice is to be around people who absolutely disagree. Grace in conflict is a study in love.

anonymous asked:

do you think there's a reason we've heard a ton of confirmations about lucifer being bi but we never actually see him being intimate with a guy, even though he constantly sleeps with different women? i'm really loving all the references to past relationships with men but i just wish we could actually see him with a guy, even if it's just casual

Believe me, there is nothing I would like better than a brief on-screen m/m hookup for Lucifer; it wouldn’t have to be much at all, and I understand why people want to see it as well as just hearing about it. I am obviously one of those people. But I am also willing to be patient because the writers seem to be working toward referencing it/embracing it much more and bringing it up multiple times in each episode. In s1, we saw him wake up with a guy and a girl and then the issue wasn’t really raised again; you could mostly assume he was heterosexual and that was just a one off. But starting in s2, they really leaned into it more, especially in 2x11 with there being men as one of the victims and seen among the exes, and Lucifer himself referring to it. Now in s3, it’s brought up many times in each episode, we’ve gotten more plot points in relation to it, we’ve seen Lucifer check out men and enjoy being checked out by them, learned more about his past in relation to male lovers (William Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde), etc. I’m just saying, the writers could have thrown us that one tiny tidbit in s1 and then had that be the only canon reference to his bi/pansexuality ever, but instead they went in WHOLE HOG with the Devil being bisexual on a mainstream TV show. On frigging FOX. I mean, One Million Moms had enough of a problem with Lucifer being the protagonist, and they could easily have dialed back his non-heterosexuality as a result. But they didn’t; they embraced him as a queer character, full steam ahead. I appreciate that.

Obviously, representation of queer characters on TV is still a grab bag, and we get some things with some and not with others. I certainly don’t think, however, that the writers are totally unwilling to give us more, and are just stringing us along by telling but not showing. I think they realized that people liked Lucifer being queer, and thus gave us more of it. They are also very responsive on twitter and aware of how the fans receive certain things. If you tweet, say, Joe Henderson or Ildy Modrovich or the Lucifer writers account (POLITELY!!) and tell them that you love their references to Lucifer’s non-straightness, but would so much appreciate to see a male lover on screen even in passing, they could very well take that into account for future episodes. They have to know explicitly that we would like it and want to see it, and that we really appreciate everything they have given us so far – because again, it would have been easy to never bring it up again and never confirm it, but they talk about it often and are willing to do more with it. We just have to (again, politely!) let them know it’s something we really do want and would receive well, and see what happens.

I’m very attached to Lucifer as a bi character because 2x11 happened around the time I was having my own realizations/acknowledgement of being queer, and was pivotal in me putting things to words and so forth. So as ever, representation matters. I am forever happy with and eager for the fact that they continue to refer to it so consistently and give us backstory around it, and have moved to a pattern of doing that more, not less. I also think it gives depth to Lucifer’s character; it would be easy to have him just be a completely straight ladies’ man/sleazeball womanizer, but that they have continued to steadfastly depict this character as non-heterosexual (when, as noted, that character is the Devil and it’s a show on FOX….) is pretty cool to me. So yes, I think the thing to do is talk to the writers; they can’t read our minds and aren’t engaged to the hilt in fandom/Tumblr discourse, they don’t automatically just know. By all accounts, they are genuinely good people who really love their fans and are grateful for us watching and enjoying the show, so yes, I don’t think they’re cynically short-changing us. They just need to be made aware it’s something we really like. Let them know and thank them for giving us this complex, flawed, intriguing LGBT character, and let them know how much we want to see it too.

I was tagged by the lovely @princesse-de-la-rue  - Thank you, dear. I tag anyone who wants to answer because I believe everyone on my list of usual victims already replied. :P 

1. Do you think we’ll have a canon “Force bond”? What does that mean to you?

Canon yes, but I doubt they’ll name it in the movie or give any lengthy explanation.

The general audience already knows what a Force bond looks like already…

They will understand that Rey and Kylo feel each other in the Force. Like, idk, a presence that stays with you at the back of your mind. I don’t think they’ll be able to communicate directly. They might share visions though.

2. Do you think we’ll get a kiss?

99% sure that there will be no reylo kiss in ep.8 but if Rian manages to pull up one that doesn’t look awkward or ill-timed, I’ll give him mad props. Like, I would actually conceive a human baby just name them after him. 

3. Do you think the fandom headcanon of Rey and Kylo fighting the Praetorian guards together will happen?

Yup. Objectively, it would make a nice climax for the story, the “No, I am your father” moment of ep 8.

It’s highly possible that, up to that point, the movie will build up Kylo as the conniving asshole who is trying to trick Rey to join the dark side. 

Remember how Daisy said she’s concerned people will turn on Rey in ep.8? If the general audience sides with Luke (because he’s Luke) and thinks she’s being foolish/naive when she runs away or start trusting Kylo, they’ll be tricked into thinking that she’s capable of falling to the Dark Side, kill Kylo and becomes Snoke’s apprentice. 

So when the scene plays out very differently and it’s becoming evident that Kylo was manipulated, it gives a reason for the audience to revisit everything they know about his character and side with both of them when they fight the guards.

4. Would you rather Rey continue to refer to Kylo as Kylo, or would you like to see her call him Ben?

I think that Rey should call him by any name he’s ready to choose for himself. 

5. Do you think Leia and Kylo will reunite?

If I was Rian, I’d have them catch sight of each other. 

*Pans on the relieved face of a mother and the anguished, remorseful son who knows he’s fucked up.*

/end movie

Mwahaha. 

6. Will Kylo and Rey end the film on the same side?

I believe they’ll choose their own path, yes.  

7. Will Rey join Snoke?

No. Categorically no, it would go against her characterisation (unless it’s a ploy and she’s revealed to be a double agent in ep.9 or something like that) but after seeing those pictures of Snoke there’s no way she would trust the guy.  

8. Will Luke die?

Nah. If Luke dies, it will be to save the day at the end of episode 9. There’s no way they would get rid of him now. 

9. Do you think Rey will threaten Luke?

She’ll clash with him, definitely. I don’t think she’ll try to kill him though.

10. Do you think Kylo knows who Rey is, or has some idea at least?

I don’t think he knows her identity yet.

Overheard

“I don’t see him turning against us, not now, or ever”
“Iggy, the kid is an MT”

 There was a pause, only the sound of the fire crackling could be heard.

“Don’t be absurd, Gladio” Ignis sounded tense, but not because he was angry “This has been a shock to us all, I should have foreseen the empire may have done something like this, but a Lucian took him as an infant. He has been raised in a Lucian household. He is in every way a Lucian”

Gladio stroked the fire

“What if he was programmed to act normal until the time he was found out, has that crossed your mind?”

Ignis was thoughtful

“We should treat him no different than before, he is our friend, he is Noctis’ friend. I do not believe Prompto would ever hurt Noctis. The boys sleep next to each other each night-“

“-Yeah and Im putting a stop to that” Gladio interrupted. “He’s going to be sleeping next to me now and if I think he is going to hurt Noctis, then I will do what I have to do, what we do to any Niff”

“Gladio…” Ignis said sternly “Think about what you are saying, what you are implying”

“I’m implying that I will do my job, as Kings Shield, to keep Noct save from harm” Gladio threw more wood into the flames “He hid who he was, what he is, from Noct, from us. He knows all the goings on in Insomnia, he knows the layout of the citadel. He knows too much about Noctis. All I’m saying is he could be a sleeper agent”

Ignis had grown tired of the conversation. He stood up from his chair

“It is getting late and we are up early, best get some rest” Ignis hoped Gladio would drop the subject in the morning

“Shall I move Noct?” Gladio asked

“Leave him be, his Highness is cranky when woken. Both are sleeping anyway”

Ignis climbed into the tent, Gladio came in after him. Ignis looked down at the two younger boys sleeping, natural enemies laying side by side, fate somehow made them friends. Ignis bent down and pulled the blanket closer over them

His eyes went from the dark-haired prince to the blonde boy
“I know you would never hurt us” He said very quietly. He stroked the tears away from the boy’s face, his eyes squinting to stop more tears from falling. He opened his eyes, the blue wasn’t showing in the dark, but Ignis knew they would be bloodshot from crying.
Sometimes Gladio was careless, this time was one of them. Prompto was always last to fall asleep. He had heard everything. 

Ignis lay down next to Prompto and held his bar-coded branded arm until he fell asleep, the pillow under him wet with tears.

Asks are open again.

This blog has admins, the best admins, and they follow multiple socialist tendencies, the best tendencies EVER, believe me, ask anyone, they’ll tell you.  And they can answer questions, and nobody answers questions like we do, and it’s been a long time since we took questions, but they were very good questions, and together we can make the ask box great again.

[Character Analysis] Aphrodi / Afuro Terumi

I noticed that some people consider Aphrodi’s character as quite bland after the whole Zeus fiasco was over. That he seemed to have been rewritten as some sort of Gary-Stu, too good for his own good. Now this is an attempt from me to make these people (you?) reconsider their opinion on Aphrodi, since I believe this character is much more complex than what we may see at first glance. So I’ll be using hints mostly from the games (Japanese versions) but also from the anime, from spin-off games (Inazuma Everyday) and the 4th Inazuma Eleven Outer Code episode in order to build this analysis.

Warning : Post is long and also contains some pictures !

Warning 2 : I do not pretend to hold the ultimate truth, however this is how I see him based on canon-only material.

So, what do I like so much about Aphrodi’s character?

It is that he seems to have built a whole façade around himself in order to protect his true nature – however there has been a few instances during which we can see the real him through small cracks in the armour.

bsquared050716  asked:

Do you think someone like Sibohan being described as bigger could be a ballerina due to vampire biology? Clearly as a human many things ballerinas do require less weight on the ankles and toes but with vampire durability and grace this isn't an issue. Just curious since Alice is always described as dancer like what the other body types could accomplish. I know the secrecy aspect would be an issue but it's still interesting.

I think we’re meant to believe that the vampire body is capable of a lot of things that the human body isn’t, even if that’s kind of hard to square with the “living statue” and “marble skin” stuff. That is, you wouldn’t think someone with diamond-hard skin would be very flexible or graceful but apparently they are. So I think even a larger vampire like Siobhan (or Emmett or Felix or Zafrina) would be able to rival any human ballerina were they so inclined. They’ve got supernaturally keen reflexes, inherent grace, and the strength and stamina to perform any athletic feat no matter their relative size. 

Because this is our first life, 14

How many dramas have I seen that have thrown in a long-lost love as a last-minute complication? A million, probably, and each and every one of them suffered for doing it. But I’m really starting to believe that this show can do no wrong. Instead of turning Se Hee’s old girlfriend into a possessive, competitive bitch out to win him back, it introduced her as a fully formed, wholly sympathetic character who Ji Ho instantly likes and respects (and maybe is a little turned on by). She’s someone we as viewers want to be a mentor to Ji Ho, because she’s cool and smart and funny. And that’s what will make her shared history with Se Hee a valuable plot point. She’s not a dog written into the story to play tug of war–she’s a person we can’t help caring about.

Hey so uh I kinda accidentally spoke with Loki a few years ago and “hung up” on him? I was thinking about how much I hated my at-the-time band director and someone responded which SPOOKED me. Eventually I asked who was talking to me and they said “Loki, duh” and I kinda panicked bc this was before I knew about speaking with gods. Or Norse mythology. So I thought I went crazy and developed a second personality. Basically, is there a way to say sorry for ignoring him for like 3 years?

The gods understand that discernment is hard and that getting contacted by a deity we don’t even believe in can be scary. Heck, even getting contacted by a god we do believe in and are actively trying to talk to can be scary! So if it really was Loki, then I wouldn’t be worried about him being angry at you about it.

It’s enough to just say hi and explain to him what you just explained in your ask. You could also throw in an offering to show there are no hard feelings, but that’s not necessarily required. We have suggestions for how to get started in our FAQ.

Of course, if you do have a mental illness that involves intrusive thoughts, hallucinations, etc., then you should try and rule those causes out before assuming a supernatural explanation.

And maybe it goes without saying, but this time around you should be prepared for a response. Not everyone gets them, and those who do don’t get one with every prayer or offering. But it can happen, and yes, they can be frightening. If it’s still something you’re not sure you can deal with, then know it’s not something you have to do. We’re not required to reach out to gods just because they reach out to us.

Best of luck!
