this can go in my rant tag

so last night i was rereading house proud by astolat, aka the best harry potter fic there ever ever was, & then i started having Thoughts about hp wizards being the descendants of the fae cuz it just makes!! so much sense!!!

i am perpetually disappointed by so much of jkr’s world-building but this in particular bothers me so much cause like

she placed so much emphasis on blood lines & ~purity but the only ever used it as a shite allegory for racism

u know who gives a thousand shits about blood lines? the fae. u know who goes to great lengths to exist separately from humans? the fae. u know whose society is split into groups based on personality? the fae!!

the evolution of wizarding society makes so much more sense!! if u interpret them as being fae adapting to the changing world!!!

Yeah I can’t really see how it’s surprising that the word “pussy” was used a lot in protests against a man who is infamous for saying he “grab[s] women by the pussy.” That’s not about transmisogyny, JFC.

In general, the modern feminist movement really has to find a way to be inclusive to trans women and to be able to talk about how much cultural misogyny is based around wanting to control cis women’s reproductive capabilities. It’s good to acknowledge that not everyone who gets abortions identifies as female, but not if you’re going to obfuscate the fact that much of the cultural opposition to abortion is rooted in seeing it as a “women’s issue.” Not everyone who opposes abortion does it out of misogyny, but enough people do, particularly the people with actual power over legislation, that we can’t leave that out of the conversation.

Like on the one hand, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a lot of women at the protests who didn’t realize that having a vagina/ovaries/etc. is not central to being a woman! And that could be out of hatred or simple ignorance. The one I attended had a lot of older white women who probably aren’t up to date on online feminist discourse and didn’t think through that, so I appreciated seeing younger women (cis and trans) carrying signs that advocated for trans women’s rights and inclusion. And hearing Wendy Davis include trans women in her speech at the march.

We need to be more inclusive with our language. But that shouldn’t mean we have to shut down conversations about really common forms of misogyny – especially when we’re protesting someone who engages in them.

ETA: Hey guys, original version of this post had something about how trans men on HRT can’t get pregnant – I’ve been informed by @earthboundricochet that that is not true. I can’t do anything about the reblogs, unfortunately, but I’m fixing it here. Just a head’s up.

TLC Shipweeks 2017- Week One Day One- Home.

tbh wolflet is as cozy as you can get honestly it was all i could think of when i thought of the theme. I wanted to make this look better but i haven;t slept in like,,,,a long time,,,and idk lmso. anyway yeah they went out dancing at the bar last night and she stole his shirt but Ze’ev was wearing those pants when they went out. idk how to draw him lol. i will probably go back and redraw this someday.

I’m sorry, but even only being 23, I grew up having to dig my way through so much to find real representation actually ON SCREEN. And I don’t care if you think they’re not “fresh” because the actors and characters are not in their teens or early twenties. I would still rather see them getting fully fleshed out, backstories, episodes that are supposed to be centric to them being centric to them and more than five minutes of screen time if they’re supposed to be main characters.

I like Lena, I’m okay with SuperCorp, I’m not cool with having a beautiful, healthy, interesting, canon w|w relationship and an amazing qpoc woman on my screen taking a backseat to either of those things.

Give Lena her own, separate episode for this. Don’t take away from what they said they were giving us. Not to mention James Olsen deserves better just saying.

Saturday Rant

OKAY.

So I tried to bite my tongue. A lot. But as I go on the tag and see more and more of this, I can’t not say something.

I have seen multiple say that by wanting a happy ending for Isak and Even people are romanticizing a mental illness…

No.

I have seen multiple say that it’s not realistic for Isak and Even to be able to be together.

No.

The most powerful representation you can have is showing people overcome and move forward. It’s sad and disgraceful to me that our version of reality means that someone who has a mental illness is not capable of getting a happy ending.

Mind you, when I say happy ending, I do not mean butterflies and rainbows.

Relationships are work, mental illness or not. It’s not going to be perfect. But to say that it’s not realistic for characters to be able to be together because one of them has a mental illness is just incredibly devastating.

When you see suicide rates and you say “I wonder why so many people did this?” maybe look at your own ideas and expectations for someone who has a mental illness and see what that person saw and heard over and over again.

Realistically, you can’t end up with him. It won’t work. It’s [you’re] toxic.

WRONG.

You can be and you deserve to be happy and in love. You are not toxic. You are beautiful and your relationship has the ability to work and flourish.  It can work.

It’s not wrong for people to want to see that, especially when all so many of us see and hear in these TV shows and movies is how it’s not possible (therefore perpetuating this damaging idea about reality with a mental illness to those who are actually living with them in the real world). That’s not romanticizing a mental illness.

tl;dr: Even and Isak can and should end up together. No, it shouldn’t be perfect or seamless. Screw perfect anyway. What is that? Them ending up together would send a powerful message to people that clearly so many people don’t realize is needed.

Sooooooo, tagging is literally taking time away from writing before I have to go to bed. Instead of writing, I’ve been tagging and I’m not even done and I’ve been at this for half an hour.

I can’t do this. I can’t tag people. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience, but I will just timezone reblog my fics and answer asks with links on them and you guys know I write at least once a day. You can all just take a few seconds to check my blog to see if I have anything new written. Or just put on notifications or something. 

I’m very sorry. I just can’t do this. Not when tagging takes away from my writing time and the fact that I won’t get to write tonight because I’ve been at this for the past half hour and should be in bed in 45 minutes. 

So, yeah. I’m like done tagging. 

Pulling On My Six Heart Strings

In which Lin wakes up to the reader playing his guitar.

Author’s Note: Ladies, gents, non-binaries… welcome to my first blurb! I am so nervous to put this out there, but it won’t hurt to try (I hope). Special thanks to @secretschuylersister for prereading this for me. AGH, here we go. Please leave feedback– from format to wording, let me know what I can do better! x

She is wondrous. From her stentorian rants about her favorite characters on television to her secret recipe for chocolate chip cookies, I’m always amazed by the surprises she has in store. Sure, some may label it as whipped. But when I’m greeted every morning with that lazy smile next to me, there’s no denying I’d do anything to keep her around.

The apartment fills with a simple chord progression down the hall. Pairing with it is the sweet voice I’ve grown to crave, humming along to a familiar tune. I sit up, still in a wavering state between consciousness and slumber. As I rub the sleep out of my eyes, the strumming stops.

“Damn it,” she mutters. I rise and begin to make my way to where the noise is coming from. Stumbling at first, I quickly regain my balance and the playing continues.

“I will hang my head, hang my head low…”

I stop at the corner of the hallway as she croons to herself.  Leaning my head against the wall with my arms crossed, my eyes fluttered shut as I take in my surroundings. A smile decorates my face when I hear her voice crack in the most endearing way, still hoarse from the night’s rest. After a few minutes of hiding my presence, I turn into our shared living room to find her. She’s sat on the couch, feet kicked up onto the ottoman with my guitar in her arms and a notebook to the right of her. She snaps her head up from the instrument and I can’t help but grin. 

“G’morning,” I start. “What’s all this?”

“Oh, I didn’t know you were awake yet. How long’ve you been there? Sorry about using your guitar, I’ve been meaning to teach myself Crane Wife 3 forever and felt like trying today.”

My feet floated towards the couch and found myself standing over her with a fixed gaze over her features. I glance to the notebook where she has notes scattered all over, scribbles and chicken scratch splayed across the page. She starts to try and explain herself more but I cut her off by moving onto my knees in front of her.

“You’re teaching yourself this? No sheet music?” I questioned, my line of sight not moving from the page of notes.

“Well, I figured I could just audiate it. The chords can’t be that hard, I mean I’m no Clapton but it’s just for fun.”

I slowly look up at her to find her eyes on me, nervously awaiting a response. I have yet to wipe the smile from my face before she speaks again.

“I just cannot for the life of me figure this chord out.” She looks back down at the strings and continues, “The one in the transition between the verse and chorus.”

What the hell? My girlfriend is teaching herself Decemberists on a Sunday morning with no ulterior motive. This talent of hers has never come up before, and I’m absolutely dumbfounded to say the least. We’ve always shared a common taste in music, but I never knew she had this up her sleeve. I take her hands and readjust them on the strings, I watched her face change from furrowed in confusion to wide-eyed. It was almost as if I was seeing the lightbulb in her head go off. She begins strumming, failing to suppress the smile of pride that was threatening to show. 

“Each feather, it fell from skin,” we both started singing. “And I will hang my head, hang my head low…”

As we finish the song, she quickly turns to the notebook and writes “D-A-G” in big bold capitals. She fawns down at me, still on my knees.

“You keep this up, I’m gonna have to ask Lac to get you into the studio with me.” I say, breaking the silence.

“Stop,” she blushes. She removes the guitar from her lap and takes my hands, simultaneously pulling the two of us onto our feet. “You know it’s not that serious.”

“But I am,” I replied. I pushed a piece of hair away from her eyes and felt as if I were looking into the face of a lighthouse. I’ve never really been a man for surprises, but hers were always pleasantly appreciated.

You all know that i love to go through the tags when someone reblogs one of my edits, BUT i am so sick and tired off people reblogging my malec gifsets and tagging them with #i hate this show #it was so bad #but i am here for the gays #the sexual tension is real #they better fuck in season 2 ….. like ??? Stop fetishizing mlm relationships. I am so sick of this bullshit and grossed out, that I can’t even put it into words. 

Can y'all please stop ranting about the 2.5 age gap between Yurio and Otabek. Like please, and if you’re going to rant about it DO NOT tag it in the “otabek x Yurio” tag please. Those of us who understand that because it is not a sexual relationship and understand that it is not canon sexual (making it legal) would like to go through the tag and look at fan art and cute fluffy things. We don’t want to hear your opinion. Sorry, but if you think it’s disgusting, that is your right. We don’t have to agree with you though and there is nothing stopping us from continuing to ship it.

Terms and conditions of the Emma wish AKA why the wish-verse actually makes sense.

Now you all know I’m not shy about criticizing the show, but I’m actually ok with this AU. I finally watched the ep (i haven’t seen this week’s ep nor looked at my dash for spoilers) and I’m feeling pretty consistent with my rant at @jadeddiva about it. Also tagging @alchemistc and @mediumsizedfountain

Ok. So here we go. The EQ said “I wish that Emma Swan’s wish to have never been the Savior be granted.” Therefore, the EQ’s wish is built around the terms of Emma’s wish, and cannot conflict with any of Emma’s terms and conditions, only fill in terms that are not inconsistent with Emma’s terms and conditions.

Let us recall the rules of genie-dom, according to the movie at least. You can’t wish for more wishes. You can’t kill anyone. You can’t raise the dead. You can’t make anyone fall in love with anyone else. And in the show, you also can’t wish to undo anyone else’s wish. Which is consistent with contract law - you can’t make a contract that includes terms that are inherently contradictory, else it’s frustration of purpose. Thus, the EQ’s wish can’t conflict with the internally-nested Emma’s wish. Emma’s wish takes precedence, EQ’s fills in the edges.

Emma’s wish
Emma Swan wished to have never been the Savior. Note it’s Emma SWAN the EQ identified as making the wish, Swan being the person who exists in this world, the person abandoned by her parents, accepted and then rejected by the Swan family, raised in the foster system, found by Henry and lured into coming to Storybrook, breaking a curse via TLK on Henry, etc. That Emma. The Emma we know. The Emma who loves her son and cannot imagine any world where he does not exist and does not want to imagine any world where he does not exist.

So to Emma Swan, her wish that she’s not the Savior absolutely, positively means she does not wish for the disappearance of Henry. Absolutely fucking not.

Which means that Emma Swan’s AU of not being the savior still includes Henry. Which inherently means Neal. Because Neal is as much a part of Henry as Emma is. So Neal still has to be Henry’s father in the wishAU. However, Emma Swan does not wish Neal any ill, and Emma Swan is sad that Henry was ever disappointed by Neal, so in the wishAU, Neal is just conveniently and wistfully a dead hero who no one has any reason to doubt and Emma has Henry.

To Emma SWAN, not being the Savior means she was raised by her parents who loved her, that she had a childhood in a happy and whole home where she was safe. Where she’s not currently running from crisis to crisis, where she can instead spend time with people who love her and not always be gearing up for the next villain-du-halfseason. So the only way for that to work in the wishAU is for Snow and Charming to have raised her. Which means they’re old now.

Note also that Wish!Emma is still Emma Swan because she doesn’t want any stuff for her birthday. She wished for a family in the first episode of the show, and she has exactly that in her wishverse. Everything she wants is a family.

In order for Emma to have been raised by her loving parents, that means no curse on her birthday, no need for a Savior, no magic wardrobe trip with Pinocchio. No curse means Rumple is still in jail (I don’t quite recall why he was let out; I basically never rewatch episodes).

And recall that the genie can’t kill anyone, so he can’t kill the very much alive Evil Queen/Regina. Plus, Emma Swan the real person in Storybrook doesn’t actually want Regina dead. They’re friends. She wishes that the Evil Queen never cast the curse that prompted her parents to need a savior and therefore put her in the wardrobe to be separated for 28 years. So in the wishAU, Regina/EQ just didn’t cast the curse and is banished, but not dead.

Where is Killian? He’s irrelevant to Emma Swan’s wish to have never been the Savior. She loves him when she’s the Savior and when she’s not the Savior and his presence in her life and his love for her is not affected by her Savior-ness. He is a fan of all of the parts of her. I mean, obviously they met because she was the Savior and EQ’s curse putting the entire plot in motion, but Emma Swan is not thinking logically about her wish. It’s just what she wishes, without rationality and unnecessary if-then or but-for causes. Because it’s a fantasy. So Emma Swan’s wish that she never was the Savior has nothing to do with Killian on a conscious level, and thus her wish-AU doesn’t either.

And recall the rule that the Genie can’t make anyone fall in love with anyone else. The only person Emma will ever love is Killian and the only person Killian will ever love is Emma, so they have to be separated because the Genie can’t make a world where they don’t love each other. Genie can’t make a world where Emma loves Neal, or loves Graham (also, both of them are dead and Genie can’t raise the dead), or some random new guy… Genie can’t make anyone fall in love with anyone else.

So Emma Swan’s wish was granted via EQ’s wish. She never was the Savior, but she has Henry which means conveniently absent but in a nice way Neal, she was raised by her parents which means no curse which means no need to ever be the Savior. Killian’s presence was not contemplated by the terms of Emma Swan’s wish.

Which brings us to the fact that the EQ wished for Emma Swan’s wish. The terms of Emma Swan’s wish, as articulated by the EQ, is in the past tense: have been. “To have never been the Savior.” Which absolutely does not preclude her from being the Savior in the future. You can have never been the Savior up to this very moment, and then still become the Savior one moment later. So that’s some really shitty contract drafting there - the very least EQ should have wished for is for Emma Swan “to have never been and to never become the Savior.” Though I also think that it was a serious error to include the word “Swan” because it brings along all of the Swan baggage as mentioned above.

Also, a failure to define the term “to be” or the past tense form of “to be” i.e. “to have been.” Does that mean that she was never born with the ability to become the Savior? Nope. That’s probably what EQ was thinking, but given that that’s not what Emma Swan was thinking (because in her mind, she’s always the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming who are always the ultimate TL couple so she is always born with the most powerful magic of TL) in wishing that she had never become the Savior, then that’s not a term EQ gets to control. All EQ gets to wish for is the absence of the chain of events that made Emma Swan wake up her Savior powers.

EQ’s wish
The EQ’s intention is for Emma Swan to get her wish and stay there (which she’s already fucked up on by making the terms of the non-Saviorness of the wish in the past tense only). Which means she needs a nice, happy, calm, boring life and absolutely no reason to wake up her Savior powers such that Emma has never been the Savior previously and has no reason to become one in the future.

But even with no-past-tense Savior, that means Killian, who was not contemplated by Emma Swan in her wish to have never been the Savior, is barred from being there by the EQ’s wish because the EQ knows that TLK is the most powerful magic there is, oh LORD does she know that well, and if Emma in the wishAU meets Killian/Captain Hook, as we have seen in every other AU this show has created, they always fall in love with each other. So if Emma in the wish AU meets Killian in the wishAU, you can goddamn bet that it’s going to end in a TLK that collapses the wish and voila, she’s the Storybrook Savior Emma Swan again. So, in EQ’s ability to fill in the gaps of Emma Swan’s wish, EQ’s wish impliedly excludes Killian from being near Emma in order to avoid the inevitable TLK that would implode the wish. But he’s not dead. He may not even be in the wishAU because the wishAU doesn’t make any sense and it doesn’t have to. It’s Emma’s fantasy about never having been the Savior.

Note also that we have yet to see a CS TLK. Why do you think that is? Let’s refer back to my much older post about how everything is about RATINGS because ratings is how this show is paid for and profits are made. And thus a CS TLK is only going to happen during sweeps. Probably this May.

So then what the hell is Robin doing there?

David’s wish
Robin was not contemplated by Emma Swan’s wish in either direction - she has no opinion on his presence and therefore there’s a gap in the wish-contract. EQ also wasn’t thinking about Robin - he’s irrelevant to her wish for Emma to have never been the Savior, so the gap remains.

The Genie said that a wish can’t undo another wish, but that impliedly means it can add to any wish so long as it’s not contrary to the terms of another wish. David wished for the “EQ to get exactly what she deserves.” This all hinges on so many undefined terms that I want to smack him. First off, who or what is the EQ? Undefined. Is it the EQ in the present day? Does that include Regina when he refers to EQ? Also, “what she deserves” according to whom? I hate how undefined that is. But let’s assume based on standard contract law that gaps are filled in by the reasonably understood mutual intention of the parties at the time of contract. Genie and David mutually understood that David meant “what she deserves” in the context of David’s entire approach to the universe, including “I will always find you” and “team hope” and all that, so we have to interpret his wish as “what she deserves” according to The Side of Good as opposed to what the EQ, for example, thinks she deserves, or Rumple. And Genie knew that David was furious with EQ about sending Emma away. Again. So we can safely assume that Genie knew David was talking about bad things happening to EQ. But really, shitty contract drafting.

I think one reasonable interpretation is that he wants her to suffer and ultimately die. Which of course means ultimately being reabsorbed back into Regina because We Are Both, though I don’t know that the characters in the show know that.

There is also the question of whom does David mean when he said “EQ?” I think in this instance, while he probably does mean the Evil Queen and Genie understood him to mean that, but given how connected EQ and Regina are, and the crucial fact that if EQ is the master of him, therefore so is Regina, I think the two are ultimately inseparable, and thus any term that includes “EQ” also inherently includes Regina. Thus, the unintended consequence of David’s wish and effectuating the contract as articulated is that Regina also gets exactly what she deserves because the EQ and Regina are, to Genie, legally the same entity.

And this is also consistent with David’s unspoken but acknowledged intent - he does think that Regina deserves her happy ending and he regrets that Robin died.

And Regina deserves Robin.

Given that Robin was not contemplated by nor excluded from Emma Swan’s wish, nor EQ’s wish, Genie is free to insert him into the wishAU and give the EQ, which also includes Regina, exactly what she deserves.

However, the rule is that Genie can’t bring back the dead. At least that’s the rule in the movie. So that’s a hell of a retcon, Robin not being dead. Being killed by that lightning bolt apparently wasn’t actually being dead, just “obliterated” and if obliterated isn’t the same thing as dead and Genie only can’t bring back the dead, then Robin is resurrectable from being obliterated.

So I’m totally ok with the ultimately nonsensical wish!AU because it’s not supposed to make sense and it’s consistent with the terms of Emma Swan’s wish and EQ’s wish. The Robin part I’m straining some on but I think the “Genie considers EQ and Regina to have a unity of identity” is where we can hang this.

My only rant about Andromeda is not the "animations" or the "wonky walking". It's everybody dissing the game before it's even out and flooding the tag with so much negativity.

My playthrough was fine. No wonky walking, weird animations or bad lip syncing.

I throughly enjoyed my trial and can not wait to download it late Monday. I’ve always enjoyed Bioware games and I’ve waited 5yrs for a new ME so I’m going to play it, I’m not going to listen to everybody complaining either.

I don’t tend to get caught up in the animation, but the story. The animations are so much better than any ME game I’ve played and no one can say they aren’t. They’re realistic and small fluid animations which look more natural especially the facial animations.

Maybe everyone who hates it can go make another tag because there are many of us who can not wait to play it. We’re tired of seeing all the negativity when all we want to do is play the game, and share our thoughts without scrolling through the million complaints to find one other person who is as excited as we are.

Rant about tags

Seriously, when you tag stuff with every anime you can think of or what the hell you tag just to get more people to see it it’s so freaking annoying! Usually I didn’t mind it, but now it’s gotten out of hand. I can’t go under the tag of my favorite animes anymore cause I can’t see that anime in that tag! I will literally see everything else! For example: Today I was scrolling on instagram and wanted to see some sekaiichi hatsukoi stuff but under the tag was almost just yuri on ice (which is overtaking a lot of tags sadly, even if I love it to death) and other animes totally unrelated to sekaiichi hatsukoi. This angered me and I am saddened that it has come to this. Can’t we keep our tags to what the posts are about? Please! 

Please help me ask people to stop tagging irrelevant things so we can clean up the tags and actually see what we want when we search specific tags. 

Also what are your ideas on this subject?

It breaks my heart that whenever I try and click the sebaciel tag to find new contents, I see a lot of hate posts instead. If you don’t like the ship or if it makes you uncomfortable then please avoid tagging it in your post. This way we could all live in peace, you can go about and continue ranting your hate and people like me who scrolls through the tag could actually enjoy it for once.. Thanks.

so i saw a post reacting to my rant and it basically said i was saying Sans is an awful person, and shit like that, and ugh that kinda gave me a super bad taste in my mouth, because??? no?? i never said that.

anyway, so here’s another rant on ~Sans~

also, if the person who posted that (you probably know who you are?) see this, i’m in no way calling you out, or angry with you! your feelings are totally valid, and tone is kinda hard to read over text, so, yanno.

(also i’m not linking to their post, bc i don’t want them to get any kind of asks about it. like. no thanks sir.)

ANYWAY LET’S TALK ABOUT SANS, AND HOW, EVEN THOUGH HE IS A JERK, HE IS NOT AN AWFUL PERSON, IN ANY FUCKING WAY!!!

so first of, Sans is a flawed character. he’s not perfect, heck, he has a lot more flaws than he has good qualities. (which is very relatable, tbh. like, same Sans. same.)

Sans is lazy; like, this has nothing what so ever to do with his depression, though it most definitely hasn’t helped. Sans is just, in general, a lazy ass person, which, again. #relatable

as we all know, Sans won’t fight you, unless you kill literally everything you can get your hands on. like, that is not something an unlazy-person would do, i’m sorry.

he spends pretty much the whole game asleep; he doesn’t help Frisk in any way, shape, or form, even though he promised Toriel he would. like, you can’t argue with this. Sans doesn’t do anything, and that’s fine?? i love this shitty ass goblin who sleeps constantly, and makes jokes at your expense. it’s a mirror to Papyrus intense desire to help, and it’s really neat characterization.

from what we can gather, Sans rarely does anything- Papyrus has to poke and prod and drag him into stuff, and sure, Sans says that he isn’t lazy, that “it’s the farthest thing from the truth,” but here’s where action speaks a lot louder than words, and damn it Sans, you’re kind of self-centered.

(which Papyrus is too.)

also, because @uselessundertalefacts​ just pointed it out: yes, we know Sans does stuff. read bedtime stories, has that telescope, a lot of things, actually. but: we only hear about them. and, look, here’s the thing: if you like something, you’re more likely to do it.

Sans likes going to Grillby. he likes reading bedtime stories for Papyrus, he likes playing pranks, and look. i’m lazy. i’m so god damn lazy, but i still do those kind of lowkey stuff i like to do. yes, it’s something he does, but it doesn’t negate the fact that he’s lazy.

like, if it doesn’t take too much energy, it’s fine. going to Grillby’s is literally just a teleport away. Papyrus is the center of his universe, so yes, he’s going to do anything and everything for him.

look, some of the reason he doesn’t do a lot is his depression. but some of it, is because he is lazy. and that’s not a bad thing? like, it’s just a character trait.

and okay, passing on from that thread, because we can defo talk a lot about that, let’s just. go onto something else, namely: Sans, and his behavior towards Papyrus.

(also, a little segment i had to delete, but i feel still has a good point: it’s implied that Sans is working on the machine. yes, i agree that he probably have something to do with it, but it’s kind of a forgotten project, wouldn’t you say? it’s covered up, pushed into a corner, and that’s.. not really the sign of someone working day and night on it.)

anyway: Sans and Papyrus.

Sans loves Papyrus. like, this is a fact, it’s so god damn obvious and in your face, there is no disagreeing on this.

but. but.

just because you love someone doesn’t mean you’re doing what’s best for them.

it’s not something you’re aware of. not really. sure, you know you do it- you know that maybe, it’s not the best idea ever, but you don’t get it, because you’re not that person.

Sans lies to Papyrus. Sans lies a lot to Papyrus, and that’s hurting Papyrus. it hurts Papyrus when Sans lies about shit, and that’s not something we can argue about.

Papryus isn’t a kid.

but! just because Sans is hurting Papyrus, it doesn’t mean he’s a bad person.

Sans is lying to Papyrus because he’s trying to protect him. it’s dumb, yes, but Sans just wants to keep Papyrus happy, and that’s… not a dumb thing.

Sans loves Papyrus so much. Papyrus is literally his whole world, and yeah, maybe that’s not such a good thing, but that’s how it is. that doesn’t make Sans an awful person.

hell, that doesn’t even make Sans a burden on Papyrus. he’s just a bit self-centered, a bit too caught up in himself. Papyrus loves Sans too, remember, and that doesn’t go away just because Sans has a bad habit of lying.

hell, none of this has anything to do with his depression. it’s all because of his own character flaws: Sans is, at heart, a tiny bit too easily caught up in himself, which is understandable. you have to put yourself first, always, because you have to take care of yourself first.

in fact, some of it does lie on Papyrus- he should tell Sans, instead of just accepting it with a smile. but Papyrus is just as afraid of burdening Sans, as Sans is afraid of burdening Papyrus, and yeah, they’re kind of both dumb that way.

so yes, Sans is kind of a jerk, but he’s not an awful person, and i feel like i suddenly have to stress that. maybe because i rant so much about Sans, pretty much always negative, but that’s because there’s so many issues in how people see him.

canon!Sans is a good person. he’s a bit of a jerk, yeah, but he’s still a good person, and i don’t know why anyone would ever think otherwise.

Hey I'm here to rant again

So I just raised one of my oldest, but dearest ships from the dead;

GhiraLink

And I scrolled in the most recents of the tag and h o l y shit, people are going crazy.
There are a lot of people saying how it’s not okay to ship GhiraLink.
And I’m here to tell why I can and will.

Argument number 1
“It’s pedophilia!!”

No, it is not. You would know this, if you did some research. Ghirahim is confirmed to be the same age as Sky is. (Sky as in SS Link).

Argument number 2
“It’s abusive!!!”

What is abusive? How people draw them cuddling and being cute? Or are you speaking about Ghira?
Now, I will admit, Ghira did fight Link many times, BUT. Link attacked first. And no matter how much Ghira threatened Link, he never actually even TRIED to kill Link. Ghirahim was only trying to do his job, ressurecting his master.

Besides most GhiraLink shippers ship them in a fluffy, lovey dovey kind of way. And some shippers just like to see them both SUFFER in a really angsty way.
And both are okay.


And now my last and MOST important note;

They are fictional characters.
People are free to do whatever they want with them.
Like holy fuck, some people ship others with fucking Tingle.

Of course, for trigger purposes, you should tag your art and drawing if there is any abusive or nsfw content. (Violence, rape, etc)

Thank you and goodbye.

I wanted to make a post rn even though I’m half asleep while queuing up a lot of these posts. (So sorry if I miss spell or use incorrect English)

it’s really disgusting, the events that occurred in chile in regards to bts. I already half complained about that in my tags but I’m going to say it again. How can someone be so painfully oblivious of their own actions! How do u not feel or know what you are doing is wrong! “Demanding some sort of recognition from them” bangtan sonyeondan does not owe you a single thing! Bts has already given us so much and ur asking no ur demanding! Some sort of compensation? For what? What is it that they owe you? For running a blog? For buying their albums? What is it that I’m not getting? Because if I’m not mistaken those were all ur choice, bts did not put a gun to ur head and say to u “do this” bts does not owe you a thing and u using that as a point of arguing and doing these actions that obviously disturbed them is so infuriating and overall sickening. And before you give me that lame excuse of “oh they were kids!” kids can understand their own actions, a child can tell u the difference between right and wrong, so don’t give me that bs.

I hope bts are okay and don’t take this the wrong way. I hope that they know that not all of us are like this, and I hope this doesn’t tarnish their thoughts of chile and it’s people…. I, and I’m sure just like all of you want bts to be happy, safe, and healthy, and at this point I hope that they are and can enjoy the rest of their tour.

One thing that seriously gets under my skin in this fandom–the amount of people who collectively hold a view of the main character that’s not only just blatantly wrong, but the fact that they seem to make up the majority! While in any fandom there are going to be different interpretations, both ones that fall in canon and ones that seriously cannot, the amount of people here who push their view when they haven’t actually watched the entire series recently is irritating. (If you don’t fit in this category but still disagree with me, cool. I’m speaking in generalities, obviously not everyone will fit.)

The panels above aren’t even the best examples and if prompted I could bring up lots more. Notice what he says in the panel where he’s chasing General Yellow–I can’t let a bad guy have the dragon balls. The guy doesn’t even have the dragon ball he wants! He had set out to find the four star ball that he kept in memory of his grandfather, because it was a precious keepsake to him. If Goku seriously only cared about himself and what he wanted, he wouldn’t chase after the guy. But if he doesn’t, that means the Red Ribbon Army will have them. And he’s /seen/ some of the bad things the Red Ribbon Army has done.
The second picture is a couple chapters later when the radar gets taken as well.

Goku IS a subversion of your typical shonen hero. (Though I’m fairly certain he came before those as he’s said to have set the archtype, but still.) He’s not the kind that goes around preaching at his enemies, he’s not the kind that fights solely or mostly for justice. He fights and trains because he wants to. It doesn’t mean he’s an amoral asshole or anti-hero.

I don’t know WHY this fandom insists it has to be one extreme or the other. Goku isn’t the perfect embodiment of a dictionary definition hero, nor is he a villain, he’s just himself, he’s just Goku, and he feels more real for it. The manga blatantly and consistently contradicts the idea that he only cares about himself, but y'all want to cling to your interpretation of an interview all the way back from 19-fucking-97 and take what you /think/ Toriyama must have meant over what he actually wrote in the very series he’s talking about

Mini rant?

It makes me laugh when people say Solangelo happened too fast. It was 6 months! They are 15! I get that a lot of you are a lot younger than me but I can assure you that most people do impulsive things at that age. They are 15, they don’t need to think about the relationship before they start going out!

Gods, I’m 18 this year and I have had friends who have started dating after DAYS.

Their entire relationship probably consist of holding hands and just generally being there for each other.

And to the people who say they are ‘too young to be dating’, d'you remember when everyone was dying to see Percy and Annabeth finally get together in TBOTL and TLO. Guess how old they were then? Oh, thats right 15!

Honestly, Nico is finally getting better and returning to his happy old self, why do people hate it so much? He’s made so many more friends and become so much more confident.

And its so amazing to have LGBT representation in a 'kids’ book! This stuff really breaks down barriers at a young age, and challenges kids perceptions on societies norms. I know I never had anything like that growing up.

Lastly, abusive relationship? I mean fuck off. You have no right to just throw that term around.
