Honestly I want to cry. I love Magnus so much. He's honestly such amazing bi representation and poc representation- very specifically Asian- and Harry himself is an actual angel. I just... want him to get more love and respect? And I'll be honest I'm white and bisexual and it breaks my heart and I honestly can't imagine how much worse it must be for fans of color and LGBTQ fans of color. I just am sad, sorry for this ask.
i’m just going to be brutally honest and say that white ppl can criticize this show and walk away and still find their rep elsewhere; as a queer se asian i … can’t. like i don’t. have much else?? this is it for us. this is all we get.
so it’s uncomfortable when i see the criticisms from white ppl leveled @ the show as if they somehow get it, as if it hurts them just as bad or they’re just as disappointed. like…no, you don’t get it. you just don’t. and it isn’t a slight against white fandom i’m happy you guys are lucky enough you can look elsewhere but please remember that you are in fact lucky enough to be able to look elsewhere.
Don’t be angry. There’s far too much to do with the years slipping through the sands of your glass skin to waste on a futile emotion.
Don’t be sad. Tears waste energy that can be spent listening to others, learning, growing.
Don’t feel regret. Too many dreams remain unfulfilled, and you are in a race with time to make this life useful. Don’t allow limiting thoughts to diminish your dreams.
Don’t simply grow older, but wiser, stronger, enriched, and more alive than ever. Strip off all your layers and dive into the ocean fully naked at midnight. Feel the danger on your skin and find delight in the unforeseeable risks.
It’s time to live fully, wildly, quixotically, exotically. There are no regrets in a life lived richly and loved fully.
I may not know you all, but I’m glad you are all here. I remember when I felt like my life didn’t amount to much but every time I thought of dying I saw everyone I knew crying over my casket and how much that image hurt me. I remember a kid in my class suddenly died. It wasn’t suicide, but I remember seeing his face in the announcement and recognizing him and it registering that he wasn’t alive anymore. Everyone was so affected by it and it made me want to believe that when you die, everyone that saw you and interacted with you will be affected. I don’t believe dying solves any problems. It takes away the opportunity for you to love more in life. It takes away future stories to tell. It takes away your chances of seeing people grow up and change. It takes away the people you could influence and the happiness that would have been there. It doesn’t solve anything.
Hi!! Been following your blog for some time now and I'm thinking of starting a writeblr (been writing for 7 years now aye) but I don't know how to get my posts out into the community and I don't know anyone either :( any tips??
Hey! Thanks for sending me this; I feel honored! 😄
This is how I connected and became friends with other writers: I explored their blog, found things I liked and reblogged them. Then I would hit them up and say something along the lines of, “Hi! I love your blog! I’m a writer too! Do you mind telling me about what genre you write or what your story is about?”
And the friendship will grow from there. Also, often times, one friend will lead you to other writers. I met @koalamuffins through @isaac-lacey and @elliewants2write (psst, I also really looked up to him and was shocked when he followed me)
This usually happens through tag games. And if you’re unsure what those are, they’re usually a list of questions you have to answer or something you have to post and you tag your followers to complete it and keep the chain going. Imo, the most fun tags are the ones about your manuscript, like this one. I tag you if you want to do it!
Follow a successful author, like Shaelinwrites or jennamoreci, etc. A lot of aspiring authors go there regularly and would seriously love to be writer buddies. That’s where I met my first writer friend: Isaac <3
2) Find something original to post consistently with writing tags: amwriting, writeblr, writers. Could be writing updates, pictures, tips, humor, etc. You’re creative, you got this! You could try excerpts, but I’d say it’s hard when you have a small audience.
Continuously talk to writers. It doesn’t have to be every day. But regularly ask them about their writing, their progress and their day.
I hope I helped at least a little! I’m still learning the ways of tumblr, too. The people I tagged above should have a lot more tips and experience with networking, and I know they’d be happy to speak with you! <3
The traitors have taken charge,
taking foreign pay in pocket
to burn the world as business
Corruption with a capital C
as the mewling meager mice
happily eat their poison cheese,
Bleeding blackened souls
sing anthems to hatred and fear
and the chorus grows louder
What’s to be done
with nowhere to run?
Fuck it let’s fuck
No point to subtlety,
Dignity is out of fashion
and restraint is only a legal term
Push me down,
Climb on top
Take me in
Take my love
Like they want to take our rights
Ride me hard
Make it long
Wash me away
in your flood
They want to drown our resistance
But I will drink from you
in your heat
fill you with
Because in this growing darkness
you are white hot
I know that this is something real small but I appreciate that in And Pokey! You wrote that he was sobbing so hard he could barely breathe. So many authors forget the e at the end and it's kind of a pet peeve of mine. I saw it and my heart kind of did the !!! Thing because not only are you like one of my favourite authors but you also know how to spell. If that doesn't get you extra favourite author points then I don't know what will
Thank you! Feedback on details like this help me grow as a writer. I love them!
Happy 18th birthday to the baddest Pisces woman I know @astrollusion ! ❤️ Go wish her a happy birthday and make sure to follow her because she’s intelligent, hilarious and sassy as hell!
