My husband and I worked together at a well known bookstore. I was in the back offices doing special orders and he worked on the floor. We had been married for about five years and had a two year old at the time of a big work party celebrating an author's new book. We showed up together with our daughter and everyone was surprised! They knew we were each married, but not to each other. This is why I can remain so calm when it comes to Cait and Sam.

This is great, thank you for sharing :) I know that situation with Sam&Cait is different, but you can be together and keep it private in the show business too. For example 

Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton have been together since 2009, but they tend to keep their romance pretty private. Aside from the occasional red carpet outing, these two don’t step out together too often. But when they do, they always have a good time (like, a really good time). In addition to the Walking Dead actor constantly goofing around and making Hilarie laugh, the One Tree Hill actress frequently plants sweet kisses on her man (and that nuzzling in his neck? FORGET ABOUT IT). The pair, who welcomed son Augustus in March 2010, are so protective of their personal life that they’ve never confirmed if they’re married or not (they probably are). While it can sometimes get annoying when couples are overly gushy in public, these two are just so damn cute because they genuinely seem like best friends.

anonymous asked:

Do the Inhumans/Attilan have a flag?

Not really.  The closes Attilan has to a flag is the ubiquitous tuning-fork glyph that adorns Black Bolt’s forehead and is also a frequently occurring ordainment in the architecture of Attilan, New Attilan, as well as The Quiet Room.

The exact meaning behind the forked glyph has yet to be completely addressed.  Some stories have suggested that the glyph is a central component to Black Bolt’s powers, a conduit through which he channel and controls his energies; while in other stories present the glyph as merely ornamental.  The Inhuman geneticist, Budan, also wears the glyph as part of his helmet. 

Lockjaw has this same glyph on his forehead and it hasn’t been indicated whether the glyph grew out of Lockjaw naturally or if it had been surgically installed.  In any case, the glyph crackles with energy whenever Lockjaw uses his teleportation powers.  


In our interview with Mosaic author, Geoffrey Thonre, over on the AttilanRising Podcast, Mr. Thorne stated that it’s very significant that Mosaic’s original Inhuman form possesses that same glyph atop his head.  

So while the glyph itself can be used symbolically, it also shows up on Inhumans who possess substantial powers.  
In any case, the exact meaning and significant of this Inhuman symbol remains a mystery; hopefully further light on the subject will be shed in future tales.  

Our struggle is against authorities, against the power of this dark world. Our government, the state, is the enemy. 

This psychopath, this war-machine, this serial killer, is no longer nuancing things to chill out liberals. He’s not covering up the fact that nearly 90% of those killed in drone strikes were innocent with a quotable speech and an exclusive photo op. He’s still lying, yes, but blatantly lying. But he’s also openly sharing his plans to kill, steal, and destroy. And he intends on doing every bit of it.

This is the state. And, really, this has always been the state.

The state was always the enemy. The state has always had a monopoly on violence. The state has always backed and institutionalized oppression. The state has always waged wars grounded on and led by racism and greed. The state has always ruined and destroyed lives, innocent lives. The state has always meant to be opposed, always meant to be smashed.

The state is not for the people, and we need to stop acting like the state is a person. The state is not a creature but an ungodly force, a vehicle for Satan. And really, there’s no such thing as violence against the state.

And if you have ever read the Book of Revelation, you’d know that state has an expiration date, and we’re getting closer and closer. If you keep reading, too, Jesus wins and the Kingdom of God will one day be fully realized on earth. 

Are we ready to reject the violent authorities of this world and rely on Christ again as our King, our Shepherd, our Friend? I hate to say this, but the truth is that Judgment Day is coming. I don’t know what this will look like, or how it will go down exactly, but I want to be able to face Christ and say that I served him, that I was loyal to his Kingdom. I want to be able to say that I fought empire with all that I was, and if I can’t do that, I will be admitting to have supported empire and siding with the anti-Christ. We are all complicit when our very existence is so deeply tied to empire, and that’s something we have to face and reflect on regularly. But even as we are being exorcized and healed, we need to offer this gift to the world. 

Church, it’s time to live like the Kingdom of God is real, like this is our Good News. It’s time to move-in together and live our lives centered on building and extending God’s kingdom, our unkingdom. We need to reject the false authorities of this world and look to Christ to build the Kingdom in the midst of empire. We need to build a new world as Satan’s collapses around us. We need to provide for one another, and we need to offer liberation to all those around us. We need prophetic civil disobedience and the active creation of a new kind of society. We need to be the Church again.

Undertale Fic Theft PSA

I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there’s a certain matter here that requires attention.

This is Tony Frisk, an author on Amazon.

While the initial page reveals fairly little there’s one major issue regarding our dear author here.

Every work posted on their page is stolen from various Undertale fanfic authors.

Undertale: Who are You is actually Memories of a Soul

Undertale: Overworld is actually sans, by tsukithewolf

Undertale: Another War is actually Blue Magic

Undertale: Home is actually Why Children Climb Mountains

Special mention goes to the Undertale: Underschool series  for being particularly slimy as every part belongs to the same story, Underschool: Fallen Child and all those volumes are merely a couple chapters slammed together.

WHAT DO?

Hammer Amazon’s report functions, especially infringement and double-especially if you’re the author.

I unfortunately am not aware of better avenues to take these down, but it should work as a kickoff point, not to mention the more people know it about it, the better.

Love doesn’t need to last a lifetime for it to be real. You can’t judge the quality of a love by the length of time it lasts. Everything dies, love included. Sometimes it does with a person, sometimes it does on its own. The greatest love story ever told doesn’t have to be about two people who spent their whole lives together. It might be about a love that lasted two weeks or two months or two years, but burned brighter and hotter and more brilliantly than any other love before or after.

There is an incredibly racist upcoming book that you guys need to be aware of.

It’s called The Continent and perpetuates extremely offensive stereotypes of people of color. Justina Ireland posted a summary and I screenshotted so you guys can see. It’s even worse than it sounds, check her twitter for more receipts on this.

It’s VERY important that we readers are vocal about our dislike and make sure that this doesnt happen again. The author received a HUGE marketing budget, a seven city tour if I recall correctly which hardly ever happens and means that they assume this book will sell like crazy.

If it does, it will affect real lives. We’re talking about a classic white savior narrative that demonizes POC and portrays them as savages. It’s horrifying.

SO please. Share and/or rate this book on Goodreads, don’t buy it to “see for yourself”. Don’t support racism. It’s important to make sure the publisher SEES what’s happening here.

  • White racists are rating the book five stars rn and giving it positive reviews because it’s being called out by POC
  • POC are getting attacked, harassed, and insulted for speaking out
  • Someone even sent an email to Justina’s editor in an attempt to ruin her livelihood.

Let’s help combat racism in publishing. Spread the word.

do u ever actually forget that a character is dead in canon because the fandom denies it so consistently
