this is a real thing i own

No but seriously if I were to, say, assemble a team to rewrite the entire second season of Supergirl...would any of ya’ll be into joining me on that

Among other ideas I have: 

Mon-El is a young boy (NO ROMANCE) who Kara mentors

Cat Grant never leaves, Lucy never leaves, Max Lord is not the Big Bad but he’s still there. 

Karolsen is a thing for at least half the season because THEY DESERVED A BETTER BREAKUP if they even break up at all (but if they do, the only person that deserves Kara is Lena let’s be real) 

Lena becomes Guardian Maggie gets a backstory BEFORE dating Alex


Please, feel free to add your own ideas. 

REAL TALK: since we’re talking about fandom and age

let me just get this out of the way, i do not condone or encourage underage followers on my blog. but ultimately i know i can’t enforce anything. however, since i know you’re here, i wrote this for you. i hope you read it.

so… to any of you are kids under 18- and you are kids- read this post carefully and take it to heart. know that i am writing this based on my own experiences as well as many, many others’

  • there is a lot of content that concerns kids under 16 having sex with full-grown adults. please don’t take this as normal, outside of fiction. people who write/draw these things are usually similarly underage people who don’t yet grasp how unhealthy these dynamics are in real life, or adults who fetishize the content because they realize how unhealthy it is in real life.

  • please realize you are not the same person you will be a few years down the road. don’t assume you know everything about yourself or about the world.

  • please don’t be in a rush to prove yourself as an adult. there is plenty of time for that. i know you’re getting underestimated at every corner, and that you probably aren’t even reading this because i referred to you as a kid. i know it’s infuriating. but it’s also very powerful to be underestimated. you are always in a position to prove people wrong by simply being true to yourself.

  • stay away from any adult who says you are “mature for your age” as an excuse for their behavior.

  • stay away from any adult who knows your age and still tries to initiate romance or sexual conversation with you. there is no exception. no matter how nice or sensitive or pushy they are.

  • no is a full sentence.

  • you are not more or less mature based on the fics you read, the roleplays you participate in, etc. 

  • fandom is where adults, both mentally healthy and unhealthy, cope/vent/fantasize through content. what you’re seeing fictional characters say and do is not an accurate portrayal of society. real life is not a porno or a beautifully broken emo paradise. people are rarely sociopaths, sex addicts or saints. fan work is heightened reality and it is usually self-indulgent. don’t base your views on the world based on what you see on a03/tumblr/whatever you kids are using.

  • anyone who is on tumblr for 10+ hours every day is using it as an outlet.

  • don’t expect adults to act like adults. a lot of them will disappoint you.
  • be the bigger person. take the moral high ground. it may not feel as fun, but it’s the better choice.

  • don’t assume anyone knows your age. mention it when you can. if it discourages contact, don’t take it personally.

  • realize there is shit you just don’t understand. not because you’re dumb, but because you don’t have the experience yet. these are two very different things.

  • don’t let anyone make you feel like shit just because you were born later than them.

  • on the other hand, if someone older than you wants you to understand something you don’t yet understand, listen. it doesn’t feel good to be out of the loop, i know, but in life lessons aren’t always easy to come by.

  • don’t like about your age in order to get adults to talk to you. this puts people in a potentially illegal situation and endangers you.

  • block anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable. you don’t owe yourself or anyone else an explanation. trust your intuition.

She seems only to care about the b of lgbt now

That’s kind of a ridiculous statement.

Listen, here’s the thing. Homophobia is everywhere, right? Being LGBT we’re minorities and we have sucky representation and there has been and still are sucky laws against us and basically it’s sucky.

Now picture being bisexual. Where not just heterosexuals are against you, but so are the people in your own community. The ones that are supposed to be on your side, to know what it feels like to be pushed aside and treated like dirt. Imagine your supposed community literally turning against you. You’re not gay enough, not straight enough, not good enough, not enough.

Imagine being told you’re not real. You’re fake. You do not matter. Jesus, it’s horrific. The biphobia and bi-erasure within the community is the worst thing about it all I personally think.

Sara is bisexual. Okay? She’s married to a man whom she loves and her sexuality is bisexual. She has the possibility to be attracted to more than one gender.

She’s not a different person. She’s who she always, always has been. Do you not realise what she’s doing right now? Do you not know how well paid, what a safe job Greys was? She was loved, Callie was loved, it was so, so comfortable.

She’s literally saying no. No I will not put myself in that position, I will not put our youth in that position. She’s saying I will take your hate, I will take your uneducated comments, I will take your stupidly, lack of humanity, lack of empathy. I will take it so that our youth don’t have to. So that something, anything, everything can change.

She’s dedicating everything she is and everything she has to others. To people she’s never met, never will meet and may never know. Because she loves them and she wants better. We all want better.

So. Shame on you.

Realised Desires

The final part of my little trilogy. As a new txf writer, I’d like to thank each and every one of you who has liked, reblogged or commented. Your support has been overwhelming and I love you all. 

Special thanks to my own little Mulder whom I adore. 

Part One | Forgotten Secrets 

Part Two | Remembered Promises 

Prompt: Things that made me feel real | MSR fluff. 

Scully glanced up at Mulder with an eyebrow quirked as he patted down his jacket for his car keys.

“Don’t tell me you’ve finished already?” she asked, her words somewhere between dubious and mocking. Mulder smiled at her and nodded once, a smug grin on his face. He’d spent the day powering through the paperwork that he always somehow allowed to build up. Friday evenings were usually reserved for working through it with whatever food he could get delivered and then making his way home via Scully’s place, but tonight was different. He needed to get everything done so he could leave as early as possible. Finishing touches needed to be made.

Man you really did research about this whole thing. Congrats for proving the media wrong again (cause I love it when people do that) and sticking your ground. You are 100% Becky approved

honestly it’s not hard to do research, it’s not. and it doesn’t even take time at all. I don’t understand how people are so swift to accuse and attack when they don’t even know the situation! 

I mean, maybe research and background checking is natural for me considering doing my own research is literally how I am a self-taught artist, but when it comes to a real life person, a regular person (yes youtubers are regular people) out in the world that has feelings, and has made a huge successful living by himself and those that support him from the ground up through hard work and passion, how can you not do your own research? and yet be so quick to chastise someone. I don’t get it. 

but anyways lol… thanks for understanding, and seeing that I have not only done my research, but even kinda have personal experience with discrimination and knowing what the difference is and so on. you got me Becky! :D 

i went into mlp season 6 expecting starlight glimmer to be discount sunset shimmer and in some ways she is kind of that (no one can replace sunset let’s be real) but she’s also her own character and i think she’s really added a lot to the season

i think the main thing is that twilight finally has something to do again? they were struggling to figure out how to make her interesting again for a few years because she’d had most of her rough edges sanded off when she became a princess, but now she’s got a teacher/student dynamic with starlight that works really well. now twilight can use her profound knowledge of friendship to help starlight make friends, but she’s also got to figure out how to be a good teacher

and they use the fact that starlight regrets being a villain really well! it’s not just swept under a rug, the fact that she wants to make up for what she did is one of her main motivations. and when she fucks up they have her really sincerely apologize

also she’s just fun and she’s so much fucking better and more compelling than the “redeemed” discord has ever been

So this is the future? Being considered homophobic because the pairing you want to get together on a TV show isn’t the gay one? Seriously? I don’t think people realize how shallow, oppressive and totally far from real issues this is. Not to mention the basic right that everyone has of having their own tastes, which some people are trying to erase. 

The Lord said “he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 24:13) and with this whole Riverdale Tumblr Mess I’m getting to understand it deeper. It isn’t easy to be a Christian, and be like the Lord, but everyday the world’s oppression over us will increase, to agree with things, to like things, to be a certain type of person. The world not only wants to shut people up - it wants everyone to be shouting the same words with them. And if you don’t, you’re an enemy. 

God is so great, He uses even small things (or maybe they’re not, we just consider them that way when in fact they’ll lead to very huge ones) to teach us His ways.

“A-As for what type of Changeling I am, most people only know of Chrysalis’ subspecies, Buprestidae, and has given the other subspecies bad reputations.. However, my subspecies is far different from theirs. While the Buprestidae feed on love, my species, Eriosomatidae, feed on the sap from trees and plants. W-We try not to cause any problems for gardeners and farmers by planting our own trees and plants, but many ponies still fear us for being Changelings anyway.. B-But you see, my subspecies is rather new.. I was the first of my kind, and it’s actually named after me. My real Changeling name is Eriosomatidae, or Erios for short.”

As for hobbies, Astrid loves singing, drawing, sewing, gardening, making herbal remedies, and gaining useless knowledge among many other things.

A thought on Roman history... During the time of the Second Triumvirate the consensus I see in older sources on Lepidus is that he something of a flop, but seemingly the real nail in his coffin was when his legions decided to defect to Octavian after they crushed the revolt in Sicily. He seemed capable enough in politics military. Do you think this is a sort of similar treatment that Titus Labenius got? Focusing on the the supposedly bigger figures while belittling and vilifying others?

The tricky thing with evaluating Lepidus is that pretty much everyone at the time who was creating primary sources had their own reasons to bag on Lepidus, which means that later historians have a harder time trying to re-evaluate.

But I think Lepidus’ biggest problem is something he couldn’t really do anything about - the second Triumvirate was all about who was going to claim the mantle of Julius Caesar, whether that would be his military and political protege or his adopted son. Lepidus never quite had anything to match that connection, which meant that his political base didn’t go further than his army…and then he gave up his army in favor of being Consul and Pontifex Maximus. 

 And that’s what sealed his fate.

So I've only been showing signs of my mental illness for a week or two but it's been getting steadily worse to the point where I'm consistently terrified of everything but I feel like I just made it up because it's a recent thing???? but at the same time the fear and the breakdowns are real so idk

i mean not all mental illnesses are things you’re born with or things you develop in childhood. in fact a lot of them develop/worsen in late teens/early twenties. and many only show if the brain is under stress, which is why they might only show during high school or college but not during other years.

mental illness isnt always constant or consistent. it doesnt make you fake or anything. it also doesnt mean you have to deal with it on your own! you should absolutely confide in a doctor or therapist about this, since it might be easily made more tolerable or reduced with medication or talk therapy!

I’m sorry but I don’t know how anyone could walk out of TFA not expecting Finn and Luke to play important roles in Rey’s life. Like…you really think Rey and Finn will be separated for the rest of the story doing their own thing? You expect Luke, at best, to be a minor Yoda role who dies off before Rey starts her Real™ mission, or at worst be revealed as a POS for whatever reason who Rey hates and abandons early on? Come on, folks.

What needs to be changed or acknowledged in the conception of Imperialism (to progress from the dogmatic usage)?

Well as for the biggest stuff 1st the development of neocolonialism and 2nd the results of the fall of the soviet union but theres tons more tbh, the most important thing 2 realize is that its a real developing system of global relations we must strategize against and not an abstract immortal principle. Its not like i think lenin was totally wrong, he was mostly right in essence and for his time but now we have our own more developed mess 2 deal with

Do you know anything about Japanese culture itself? If so, you'd see why it all makes sense.

i didn’t post anything specific about the current conversation, but it wasn’t in the sense of “oh yeah japan also has bad things in it, some real problems man” it was more condescending. 

i know japan has its own issues, but it also seems wrong for people from a different society with many similar problems, to speak about japan’s problems with a certain superiority about it, looking down their noses on it.

She was warned. She was called UNqualified. Nevertheless, she persisted. 

YES friends it’s time for another Dee’s Reviews! As I’ve said before, I undoubtedly have no business writing these given the sorry state of my own creative expression, but hey, I always say, if you can’t do, critique! 

Also keep in mind I don’t read the real judges critiques so if I’m repeating or repeating or contradicting, well, so be it.  

Let’s get down to brass tacks, shall we?

We’re losing such a good thing in Biden. Like he and Obama did funny and cute shit, but aside from being cool grandpa, he talked real shit.

He was there for rape and abuse victims, he spoke about rape culture loud and without apology. He was religious and had his own ideals, but those ideals meant he supported abortion and LGBT rights and women.

And what we’re getting now is the complete opposite who literally wants us all either dead, ‘fixed’, or subservient with the government having stripped away our rights. And I’m so fucking sad.

I supported Bernie more passionately than anything i’ve ever supported in this country. I voted for him, wore his merchandise, his bumper sticker still sits proudly on my car, but I will not be writing him in next week.

Immediately after his loss I looked for hope in the green party, joined jill steins meme dank stash, did research on her policies and though I was skeptic about a few things I had hope. But as time went on just like the rest of the candidates she too proved to be just not enough. Her failure to run an effective campaign and her anti-science pandering was too much for me and I found myself staring dreadfully at our only two real choices.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

God knows I do not want to vote for either of these two vile, corrupted, insane individuals. One is a clown and the other a robot, both interested in their own agendas and not the well being of the people they wish to lead. I’m tired of the news, i’m tired of the drama, I’m tired of cringe worthy arguments on facebook. So I went back to the last thing I believed in, and listened to Bernie. He believed in us, and so I am choosing to believe in him. He had an idea for the future and an idea for what it meant to be free and be great, and i know he hasn’t given up on those ideas, so I will listen to him and vote for Hillary because a protest vote won’t help anyone, or anything, a protest vote won’t help him or the ideologies that I stand for. And voting for Trump would be voting for everything he fought for, so I will vote for Hillary. Not because I’m a shill, or a hillbot, because God I despise that human being. But because the alternative is the exact opposite of what I stand for, so I have to make a sacrifice and vote for the lesser evil because my future and the future of my daughter depends on it.

She got me praying all hours of the night, say she want my heart, She pulling me to the river, drawing me with her siren's call, Done gave her my heart but now she wants my soul, Well I already sold it to the man in red, "Fell in love with your charm," but its a curse; cos am dead, Girl you're not who you say, bad girl they say you are Innocence isn't where am at, wear your crucifix bae Don't make me out all serious bonnie, slave to this bad religion, Unrequited love, praying at my shrine, cos I don't have a heart Like a dead man walking, I lay at your side, Make sure you're alright in my world, atleast that for you girl,

I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
