things i love about people on tumblr

I don’t give two shits about the imperium tbh. I don’t give two shits about my lovely Eldar even. All that matters is my homebrew headcanon that nobody can take from me, no matter how hard they shout “that’s not canon”. But if I can’t have that, I will be a bit disappointed, but you know what, I won’t care. I think the most important thing right now is my son and wife and the good times I have.

40k is good times, most of the time. 40k tumblr community is good times most of the time. You friendly people are important to me, the stories that make us come together (or divide us) they don’t mean shit.

Spread The Love Spotlight

I have an idea sort of forming in my head, that kind of aligns with the spread the love celebration I had from a few weeks ago and with the upcoming SPN Family Love and Acceptance Day on March 18th.  

I’m thinking about doing a weekly spotlight on a blogger that sends out positive vibes and spreads the love, people that just overall make tumblr a happier place, with you all sending in nominations.  

Please reply or reblog to let me know if this interests you.

Tagging some of the usual suspects to spread the word/gather input:  @torn-and-frayed @thing-you-do-with-that-thing @chaos-and-the-calm67 @mamapeterson @bringmesomepie56 @mrswhozeewhatsis @torn-and-frayed @kayteonline @sis-tafics @wonderange @kas-not-cas

Hi people!

I’m Ayla, 16 years old, and looking for some people to talk to!
I’m from Germany, so i speak german. My english is pretty good as well. I speak a little french and a little italian too.

I’m looking for some conversations about anything and everything, talk to me about whatever you want, i’ll probably think it’s interesting.

I’m interested in a lot of things, i like music (mainly pop punk and everything in that direction), movies, books (i love fantasy, science fiction and the basic young adult love stories), art (mainly painting and photography), animals, traveling and tbh spending all day on the internet watching videos of people playing overwatch or browsing tumblr reading astrology posts. I’m a mess.

Anyways, just text me if you want to talk, hit me up with any topic, we’ll get to know each other along the way.

My tumblr: average-illumination
I’ll give you my snapchat or my whatsapp when i feel comfortable 😊

I knew the second Mon-El shouted about their new relationship at the DEO that the Karamel haters were gonna jump all over it and be like ‘omg he doesn’t even respect her wishes, he just does what he wants. What a toxic and abusive relationship!’

Please stop for a moment to consider how much you are exaggerating what you’re seeing so it justifies whatever you’re shipping. And how offensive this is to people who have actually been in toxic and abusive relationships. 

I also ship Destiel and Nygmobblepot so I ship both homosexual and heterosexual ships. I don’t belong to either of the ‘make everything gay’ or ‘make everything straight’ contingents. I ship based on chemistry - basically my shipping is gender-blind. And it means I can see exactly how ridiculous things have gotten with the ship-wars in this fandom. 

There are some really deluded people on Tumblr. He’s just so happy he wants to shout about it. He’s in love. When you’re in love you want to share it with everyone. Mon-El is a habitually (and probably previously really spoiled) impulsive character who’s probably never been in a serious relationship before. He’s still learning and he actively sought out advice on how to be a better boyfriend to Kara and by the end of the episode had made significant progress in putting her needs first. What’s important is that he wants to be better. Nobody’s perfect and relationships require a lot of work from BOTH parties. 

I mean come on, it’s not like it’s Gotham, he didn’t kill anyone. Just let them be happy space puppies in love. You don’t see Karamel shippers making gif sets attacking Supercorp. Because we respect your right to ship what you want. Now respect ours.

I need to get my mind off things so thank you so much

To be honest, the tumblr witchcraft community taught me more than any book on witchcraft I ever read.

I always thought that when people said “everything is not as it seems” it was always a bad thing. Until I met her. She was beautiful from the start, hair soft and eyes bright. She was shy at first, looking at the ground smiling lightly whenever offered a compliment or a dance. She had the attention of many despite finding comfort in the shadows of the bar. There was an aura about her. The way her dress rippled over her every time she laughed. The way her shoes bumped against the side of the chair as she swung her legs back and forth. The way her piercing caught the light every time she wrinkled her nose. I couldn’t look away, but I couldn’t look either. She was enticing but dangerous and I brushed it off as the alcohol.

Until she was in the internet cafe downtown and I felt my palms clench so tightly my nails almost drew blood. She was typing quickly so I told myself she was doing something important. A weak excuse to leave without approaching. But not without noticing the way she bit her lip as she concentrated. Or the way her jeans frayed at the ends and hovered just above the floor. Or the way she drank her coffee with no hesitation.

It was when we sat next to each other on the bus that I decided I had to take a chance and say hello. Fate was only giving me one last chance I came to think as my heart pounded so hard inside my chest I thought I might collapse. As I stumbled over my words she let her eyes slide to the floor and laughed quietly. As I told her stories of my childhood she pressed her chin into her palm and listened as if I was sharing the best secret she’d ever heard. As I typed my number into her phone she sat on both her hands and smiled. As I got off the stop before her, she pressed her nose against the window and waved goodbye like a little kid. And as I walked home I realised she was far more dangerous than I had ever imagined.

I found myself sat across from her a few days later in her favourite burger joint, oil dripping down both of our cheeks. When we laughed in unison it felt timeless. When we linked fingers on the table it felt like magic. When we kissed on her doorstep at the end of the night it felt like home.

I got used to her head on my shoulder as we watched a movie, stealing my popcorn after she finished her own during the trailers. I got used to the way her music was always way too loud when we shared headphones. I got used to the way she smelled after a hot shower before work. I got used to the way it felt to have her trace ‘I love you’ on my back as we fell asleep on the couch. I never got used to her saying it out loud.

She was the first leaf to fall in autumn. She was the smell of grass after it rains. She was the spark against the matchbox that lights the flame. She was not the calm but the storm itself. She was the crunch of footsteps on the first layer of snow. She was the wind that blows through your hair. She was not the warm sand on the beach, rather the cool water that makes you scream then sigh in relief.

She was a firework waiting to explode. You know that when it does it will be spectacular, but you don’t know what it will look like until it happens. I knew she would take my breath away as soon as I saw her, but I didn’t know just how breathless I would feel. She is more than you could expect and nothing you thought you ever needed.

So when someone says to me that everything is not as it seems, I would have to agree. She is far more than a label of a relationship or a partner. She is the warmth that some crave their entire life but never find. Her soul is the missing puzzle piece in my mind. She is danger. She is beauty. And she is home.

a message to white wlw tumblr

If for some reason you’re making a positivity post and you’re giving a shout out to poc, for the love of god, stop employing “poc” as an adjective

I see white wlw saying things like “support poc lesbians uwu” and it’s transparent. poc literally stands for People of Colour. if you wanna talk about wlwoc, say wlwoc! sapphic woc! lbpq woc! w/e. because right now it seems like you’re using the term as a substitute for “coloured” which is a big nope

GO TO THE BASEMENT TUMBLR

I’ve spent a lot of time deciding whether or not I should write this post now, when I’m upset and salty, but with every negative comment about Russia and Russian people I was growing more assured that you, guys, really should read this and fucking THINK.
Here’s the thing: I LOVE Sherlock fandom. I love the Russian part of it, full of incredibly talented people who literally make ART and I love this big English-speaking part, too, you’re fantastic. We don’t ALWAYS get along, there’s a bunch of really bad toxic people talking shit. These guys are everywhere. But the big question is: are those the ones talking right now or is the whole fandom full of shit?
You know what happened: Russian Federal Channel leaked the new episode before the actual air date. Let’s not talk about all the “fake ep” thing with multiple endings theory and whatever and focus on the part where SOMEONE. FROM THE TV. FUCKED UP. We don’t know and probably we’ll NEVER know if it was an accident or this certain someone did it on purpose, but RUSSIAN DUB OF TFP HAS ENDED UP SOMEWHERE WHERE IT SHOULDN’T BE.
We, Russians, all reacted differently. Some people stopped whatever they were doing and went to watch the episode (and I’m SURE that most of you would have probably done the same thing), some were very upset and quit all the social media to avoid SPOILERS, some started spreading these spoilers EVERYWHERE (who can judge them? It is Sherlock after all).
That’s it. That’s the whole story. We didn’t have a referendum on deciding should we leak TFP ep or not. We didn’t ask the channel to do this. We are probably even more surprised than you are, AND lots of people are not even going to watch the leaked episode.
When I logged in to my tumblr account I EXPECTED something like this. You, guys, are not really fond of Russians or Russia in general, I understand that. It’s funny and upsetting and we just kinda accepted this shit. However I never expected the amounts of HATE towards our nation and our country and WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?
I haven’t said anything to the yoi fandom, because, well, homophobia is smth we really are responsible for and I have nothing to say but THIS.
THIS IS BULLSHIT.
PULL YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES AND SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP.
STOP INSULTING US AND BLAMING US FOR THE SHIT WE HAD NO CONTROL OVER.
I really REALLY wanted to finish this with wishing you love and peace, but not this time, no.
YOU SHOULD GO TO THE BASEMENT, YOU, IDIOTS.
THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’VE DONE. About all the people like me (angry, bitter and disappointed), or unlike me (probably REALLY upset and insulted). THINK AND
STOP.

Dear parents of autistic children,

No, your child doesn’t do weird things “for no reason”. They do it for a reason, you just don’t know it yet. You have different brains, different perspectives, so sometimes things that are obvious to them are a mystery to you. But you don’t have to ignore it and blame it on them. You can make an effort, reach out to them and figure out the reason.

Do they scream in public when it looks like everything is okay? Well, there’s probably a reason for that. Maybe the situation is overwhelming to their senses, it’s too loud, to bright, to crowded, and they need some space and time to recover. Maybe they can’t stim because other people keep telling them it looks weird, so they end up exhausted much faster. Maybe you are breaking their routine by being outside at this time. Or maybe you are going through the supermarket “the wrong way”, not how you usually do it. Maybe they forgot their comfort object at home, and just realized that. Maybe they are in pain and can’t communicate that. Maybe they are very hungry and don’t realize that yet because it’s hard for them to recognize their needs and emotions. Maybe it’s a combination of those, or something different altogether.

Either way, they probably don’t do it “for no reason”. You just don’t see the reason. Make an effort to communicate. If they are verbal, ask them. If they can’t speak with their mouth at the moment or ever, use alternative methods of communication. If they can’t explain it, consult other autistic people, including autistic adults who probably have a bunch of ideas as to why your child does that weird thing. Don’t dismiss it, don’t complain about it, don’t blame your child for doing it. Try to see the world from their perspective. Respect their needs and feelings. Learn more about autism from other autistic people.

And life will be much better and easier for both you and your child.

I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing i like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I want to ask advice.I'm learning fine art at a university, and try to do my best, but every day I feel like the fandom groups/facebook etc. slowly but surely kill my passion for 3 years. Ignorance, humiliation, disregard. I'm at my wit's end. I dont know what should I do, I want to keep drawing, but I feel like its pointless, and no matter how hard I try my artwork is useless. I feel like I'm making a mistake by believing, I can work as an artist, and I should search for something else.

This message kind of makes me very sad. 

There’s one thing I can advice. Quit the groups and fandom circles that make you burn out so much. There is no way every single fan in a fandom you love is ignorant, or humiliating, or disregarding. Find YOUR people who will support you and re-charge your passion. 

I feel like it’s in a way how I feel about tumblr recently. I see so many posts on my dashboard that either make me super bitter or annoyed…I kind of feel like a sea of salt after I spent too much on tumblr, but whenever I’m out of it I’m back to the ray of sunshine. I guess there are blogs and posts I feel no longer connected to. And it’s normal.

SO. Try finding someone you connect to. Having a one loyal friend in a fandom you can always talk to is much better than seeing the art (even if it’s great art) from a person you don’t understand. 

There is absolutely no way that your artwork is USELESS. I generally feel that the main point of art should be bringing YOU joy. If you draw there should be something you love about it. I guess it shouldn’t really rely on recognition only. 

Also, I might sound like Katara, but hey, faith pays off. If you truly believe in something it’s going to get you there eventually. 

Yuri On Ice fandom PSA

Hey guys. I know everyone is mad about the Lxve On Ice imitator that’s basically a straight-tified, whitewashed version of the story we know and love. This is what you have to do:

DON’T publicise about it. Stage a complete fandom boycott, the kind of thing Tumblr pulled off with Dr Strange i.e. no gifs or textposts or anything related to it circulating AT ALL. Complete silence.

WHY? I get it. You want to scream and rant and rave, how dare they do this to us and to Kubo-sensei? It’s awful. It is. I’m just as angry as all of you. But more noise means more mainstream attention, and the last thing we need is for people to WANT to go and see this thing to find out what the fuss is all about. Judging from the posters and general lack of mainstream attention right now, the production values seem pretty shit and there aren’t any big stars to draw people to it. It can die a quiet, unglorious death as a disastrous flop unknown to everyone, and then afterwards Kubo can sue them for a million bucks if she wants. DON’T accidentally make more people give money to this copycat to find out what’s going on.

do you ever wonder why things turn out the way they do?” she asks but doesn’t wait for a reply. 
“i mean, do you question how two people can love each other so deeply, but no matter what, love isn’t enough? i think about it all the time, and i can’t seem to grasp the fact that in a society where love is so rare, it’s still not enough for two people to fight for each other.

carolnein  asked:

I've been here a good while, and I have to say it's refreshing to see the change in more people saying "I think this animal is uncomfortable" when tagging you, even if it's just arousal and not complete discomfort, rather than things like "The dog sees the seal as a weird dog that lives in water! It's safe and cute and not illegal!" I'm also seeing more and more mutuals presumably following you, and it's like *single tear* I'm so glad the word is spreading

I’ve really loved watching the shift in how tumblr thinks about animals because of this blog too. It’s great to see people work hard to be aware and think critically about what they encounter. Granted, sometimes people get overly worried, but it’s still good that they’re asking the questions if they’re not sure and then I get to be positive input for once!

In Case You Missed It - Masterpost

I’m not sure if you guys have noticed, but tumblr has been full of *stuff* lately. Everything keeps getting buried.  Because of that, I’ve decided to help everyone out with a list of a few fics/drabbles that you might have missed.  No, this isn’t me pimping out my own fic; this is fic that was either sent to me because I asked for people’s personal favorites, or fic that I’d noticed went unnoticed.  So, read all of this.  Now.  Because I said so. 

Things You Said You Loved About Me by @alittlemissfit –

*A beautiful prompt inspired drabble that takes place between IWTB and the Revival.  It offers us a little insight to Scully’s state of mind while on the run, and a peek into their world while living out of suitcases.  It’s beautiful.

Prompts 33 & 53 by @baronessblixen

*Oh man.  Drunk/high!Mulder is something we don’t get often enough, and this little diddy gives us that in all of it’s glory.  This was such an enjoyable read, and it may have produced a little giggle out of me (which is hard to do).

All the Little Things by @frangipanidownunder

*Are you a sucker for anything cancer arc? Yeah, me too.  This hurt my heart in all the right ways, and I loved every. freaking. second. of it. 

Ripper Weather by @sunflowerseedsandscience

*A casefile!  Written recently!  How the hell did we miss this??  Casefiles are so freaking rare these days, so you better run like motherfellas and get to reading this.  

Two Spooky Agents Get It On Over Some Redwood by @twospookyagents 

*HOO BOY this was fun!  If you need fun smut in your life, then this is the answer to your prayers.  Such a great read by some really awesome authors. Bonus:  There’s a part 2!

 The Things She Carries by @edierone

*Phew, I need a minute… *fans self*  You will need many cold showers after reading this series.  I just…wow.  Wow. 

Shear Bliss by @bohoartist – 

*This is the new holy grail for “On the Run” in character smut biscuits.  It has everything you could ask for, everything you could envision about their sexy times when the angst had to be at an all-time high.  

A Preponderance of the Evidence by @kateyes224

*This is quite possibly one of my favorite WIPs right now.  Did you ever wonder what happened after Never Again?  So did I, until this baby was written.  Now this is headcanon.  Part 2 is here!  And Part 3 is rumored to be coming soon.

The Only Choice by @scullys-right-eyebrow-txf

*An in-between-the-scenes for seasons 7 and 8???? HELL TO THE YES. The writing is spot. on. with this one, and good golly is it a good read.

In the Embers by @looking-for-life-elsewhere

*A beautifully written missing scene from Herrenvolk.  Simply wonderful.

Things You Said When I Was Crying by @puzzlingpeace

*A post ep for Orison, which needs alllllllll of the post ep fic, truthfully.  The angst is so real in this one, and just so utterly perfect.  

Late Night Steps by @cosmic-files-87

*This list doesn’t have nearly enough fluff, and this wonderful little fluff biscuit is the remedy for that.  There wasn’t nearly enough fluffy moments in the show (duh), so I read as much of it as possible.  Gimme all the fluff. Can I say fluff just one more time?  Fluff. 

Blame Me, I Meant No Harm by @chileananderson

*Do you ever want to message a writer telling them to screw off because their writing is just *THAT* beautiful?  That’s how I feel with this lady here.  This letter to Scully hits your right in the feels and stuns you with it’s beauty at the same time.  

Things You Said by @somekindofseizure

*An incredible MSR series written via anon prompts.  The writing is exceptional, as usual, and this series leaves me feeling inspired.  As does all of the work by this incredible author. 

Then the Bomb by @all-these-ghosts

*This pre/post col WIP series is seriously one of the most creatively written ones I’ve seen thus far.  The dynamics between the characters is perfection.  If you’re not reading this, then you’re failing our fandom.
