this is a thing that exists in the world

March 21, 2017

Hiveswap is not out yet. Does anyone even care anymore? Do people still roam the earth with hiveswap in the back of their mind? Whispering and calling to them? It cannot be. Its been 80 days since January 2017! We could have traveled the world in that amount of time! We could have seen so many more interesting things! Yet these people do indeed exist. And these people are you and I, my friend. Cheers to the wait.

It has been (-80) days since “January 2017”.

Here‘s something that has been lowkey bugging me for 4+ years now

Fanon aspect of RWBY fandom is kind of a double-edged sword.

Sure it is cool to see a fandom that actively enjoys the setting enough to immerse themselves into it and create original characters, original pairings, original stories etc. Remnant is a world that relies on the community for it’s existence and Rooster Teeth’s main source of income is the community actually supporting them, so this speaks miles about the strength of the setting that is dear to so many people. Dozens upon dozens of people found it interesting enough to create and imagine things beyond the “canon” story. There are dozens of fanon pairings, pretty much every character with every character has ship name and some sort of fanon fiction - even if those characters never ever met. There are backstories and headcanons for almost every character.

But there’s a downside to that. And the downside is that it is so damn easy to use the existence of fanon to discount the possibilities, implications and pairings within canon. And it does not take long to realize how that happens - after all the most common way to try to “downplay” a pairing is to question its canon status. Its a VERY common problem with homophobic people literally ignoring a pairing existing or claiming “people are just seeing things”.

And that is EXTREMELY easy to do in a community where fanon aspect is so big. Its so easy to discount RT baiting Blake and Yang(AKA the biggest ship in the fanbase), Weiss and Ruby(lately way less than usual, to be fair) or even Neptune and Sun(which the writers love to bait during interviews and stuff almost as much as Blake/Yang). Its so easy to NOT SEE the said baiting and write it off to all the fanon - to the idea that people “got tangled up” in all the fanon being created and mistook that fanon for canon. What’s worse - its easy  for such a line of though to appear to those OUTSIDE of the RWBY fandom, which can easily lead to the issues present in the writing and RT behavior overall being downplayed or taken for “misunderstanding”. 

Hell I already saw arguments in line with that and how “fandom is trying to force a pairing upon the writers”. Which is silly because in reality it is RWBY writers who added all those scenes and clues and subtext for Blake/Yang. Bumbleby fandom did not just somehow “will” it into existence via fanon. Beauty and the Beast references, interactions, THE WHOLE VOLUME 3 FINALE, etc - its all in the show. Its all there. Yet many will use the fanon argument to try to downplay the scenes that already are in the canon.

And then again - whats wrong with writers accepting something fandom wants?  What’s wrong with that? Narrative of any works is fluid. Things change, things develop, writers gain new ideas or change their minds all the time. Usually story is a fluid concept with only certain plotpoints set in stone. Unless there’s some huge plotpoint tied to a romance(which would be stupid in the first place), there’s literally no downside in writers capitalizing on what fandom likes.  After all Korra and Asami chemistry was first noted by the FANS and then writers recognized it and made history.

Yet its so easy to use fanon as an argument, as a defense, as a shield, as a tool. Its so easy for Miles and Kerry(or less tolerant parts of fandom) to hide behind the huge existence of RWBY fanon - it gives fuel when one feels the need to defend against allegations of queerbaiting and it gives an extra defense from negative press due to reasons I outlined above.

And that just leaves me very conflicted.

emotions, feelings & memories are essential part of love and our existence. how you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you. Like, I am one of the person who try to find good things in everyone. Every “wrong doer” in this world have something in their history which made them what they are now. Not only them, in fact each and every one of us are like this because of numerous reasons behind it. We should not just simply say, you are “blah blah ****”. We should try to observe them, understand them and try to find goodness in them, and when you found their goodness, help them to uplift by providing them time and love them while they grow. I think every human on the planet have a purpose/lesson to teach and we have to understand that. While some may disagree with me, Even the rapist, murderers, “wrong doers” etc have a role in this world and their role is to tell us that there is something wrong, something very heinous is happening in our society which we need to address and correct/heal. Because these wrong mindsets doesn’t just pop up rather they are built through many reasons which are communicated through their act. We all are mirrors which are teaching and learning, simultaneously.
Love, understand, heal, inspire and spread happiness.

Y'know.. I think Supernatural is in fact an allegory of how awful life would be without women. No mothers, no daughters, no sisters, no wives. It's like an elaborate dystopian vision of a world without women. Just endless violence and echoing loneliness.

I’ve been sitting on this ask for a few days and just…no.

There’s a lot wrong here. One: do you watch the show? Do you realize that Mother and daughters and sisters and friends and lovers and women of all types play a huge part in the story from the very get go? It’s offensive to women and to the great female characters and their creators to act like because the protagonists of the story are men that the women simply do no exist.

Even as an allegory that doesn’t work and you may need to look more into what allegories are supposed to be (The Matrix is an allegory for readjusting your world view for instance).

But the other thing is - where do you get this idea of loneliness? The core of Supernatural is family. Brotherhood. Loving people and the world and dying for them. The boys are a lot of messed up things but they are not lonely and that’s kind of the entire point of the show. When they have nothing else they have each other.

NEVERLAND Translation

Mr. Impossible, Navigation to the dream of NEVERLAND
The key that you have, Hold it up to the sky
Even amongst the darkness, Our feelings are the same
Don’t let go, Wait for time

That fire
Is the wavering of your heart
With the magic of dancing love
The seven color applause is the NEVERLAND PARADE
Neverland

*SOUND, with the LOVE, MAGIC, RAY, FIRE, WATER, DANCE
Knock on the door of time and space
The giant wall will be broken down
Pierce the heavens, symphony
Gone with the wind, All potential sorrow
Loneliness is wiped out as well
Seven wonders that you’ve never seen
Are waiting there
Neverland
SOUND, with the LOVE, MAGIC, RAY, FIRE, WATER, DANCE
SOUND, with the LOVE, MAGIC, RAY, FIRE, WATER, DANCE

The most awful thing is I was unaware that lesbians were allowed to exist/existed, but was the only child in my family who wasn't brainwashed with homophobia (toward gay men) I only now realise me thinking "what if they think I am dirty" just meant "lesbian". Also MY FRIEND HAD TWO fosterMOMS AND NOT ONCE I REALISED THEY WERE GAY. I just said "if we will be best friends forever I don't want to sleep in the same room that's dumb" lol

its sad that we live in such a heterosexual world

Not saying your videos are but, there's such thing as bad sex education outside of schools. So yeah there needs to be some mediator or else you'll get 12 year olds looking at hardcore porno because they heard about it on a sex ed video. Plus the age group this is designed to protect (and its bullshit bc its homophobic) are like, elementary-middle schoolers. Who shouldn't know if they're ace or not, because they're little kids that shouldn't have a sex drive.

Ok but in what world does sex ed lead to hardcore pornography? Should sex ed never mention porn exists?? 

Also, I don’t get why being too young to know you’re asexual = not being allowed to know asexuality exists? My video with Childline, a children’s charity,  was literally aimed at children, and it still got blocked. 

I’m not saying none of my videos should have been blocked. Because, duh, I swear and stuff in my videos. I’m like a 12a/PG-13 channel most of the time. But even some of the MOST HARMLESS of my videos have been blocked. Like, the one where I discuss what events my university held for asexual awareness week. 

lightning/tidus is… a thing that exists???? w h a t ( fanart via this twitter. )

me: haha NO, it would never happen, don’t even think about it u delusional self-indulgent trash clown smfh

dark me: ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) it’s too late…………………….

for those who still don't fucking get it

Nazis want Jews, Muslims, POC, LGBTQP people, ‘non-contributing’ disabled people dead just for existing.

Antifas want Nazis dead because they are aware of the above and want those people to be safe.

It is not “the same thing”. It is not “more hate”. It is defending the world against people who want most of the people in it dead.

the weirdest thing about a lot of the common criticisms of millennials i see is that they all seem to boil down to:

you are soft. you believe the world should be kind. you expect people to treat you fairly. you think your needs are important, that you deserve to be listened to, that you shouldn’t be hungry and frightened and in pain. 

and people are seriously SO OFFENDED by this. like, how dare you. how dare you believe the world might be a good place, how dare you believe you should be treated well just for existing. life is pain, princess, anyone who tells you different is selling something, now wipe that smile off your face, shut your mouth and go suffer like i did.

and it’s just like… i have a kid. if she grows up expecting better treatment than i experienced as a young woman, i’m doing my job. i know the world isn’t perfect, but random cruelty isn’t something we should just shrug our shoulders and accept, and it’s so fucking weird how angry people get at youngsters who refuse to do just that.

20 Things The World Wouldn’t Have If Black People Didn’t Exist

Buzzfeed: Black people make the world go ‘round.

That’s just a small sample of what black people invented in this worlds in wich we live in. There are many, many things black people invented that all of use or need in our lives. And I am very proud of that. 

America would not be America without black people!

We need to start teaching this in schools!

Humanity really doesn’t exist. Instead of having full media covering on the genocide occurring to the Muslims, Jews, Christians, Syrians, Arabs, etc. in Aleppo, the media full coverage is focused on Kanye West and Donald Trump; steering the focus away from a genocide currently occurring on Muslim lives. The entire world is watching innocent Muslim lives die at the hands of their government without offering an helping hand, and the only thing people care about is Donald Trump, the same person who’s discriminatory and racist against minorities the most. Wake up, humanity is dead. The civilians in Aleppo have no where to run, and ZERO hospitals to go to for their injuries. The world is coming to an end. Educate yourselves, question everything, research yourselves, because relying on the media will leave you blinded by the truth. Ya Allah my heart hurts, please #PrayforAleppo

People are staggeringly invested in telling trans women, demigirls, non-binary and agender femmes how they should be presenting their gender/lack thereof. That it’s not enough, or it’s too much. But your femininity is your own, and you go ahead and express it however you damn well please.

“I’m not needed”

TV isn’t needed. Comic books aren’t needed. Oreo cookies aren’t needed. Domesticated animals aren’t needed. Specifically styled clothes aren’t needed. Cafe food and drink isn’t needed. Board games aren’t needed. Pizza isn’t needed. There are so many things in the world that aren’t needed.

But they exist anyway. They exist on their own purpose. And in return they make most of us happy. And because of that, they have the right to exist. 

Just as much as you do. You may think you’re not needed. But that doesn’t matter. You don’t need to feel needed. You exist anyway and in return make many people in your life happy, whether you know it or not. So if you ever feel like no one would care because you think your purpose is less than others, remember the small things, the other things in life that have no real purpose but exist anyway. Think about how happy they make you. Think about how happy you make others. 

Just a reminder.

Hope you all have a good day/night.
