this is the most amazing idea ever

anonymous asked:

Don't know if this has been answered, but will there be a chapter on when Oliver and Felicity first learned about Ellie's sexuality? I'm obviously assuming that they're okay with it because they're amazing people, but did they ever fall into that heteronormative ideal and think about Ellie and her future with a husband until they learned?

God that’s a good question. First off, they both take Ellie’s sexuality in stride. They’d both seen the truth of that well before she was ready to discuss it and they’d had plenty of time to get used to the idea. Did they fall into heteronormative daydreams about her future… probably, when she was little. I think most parents do. 

I’m kinda weird that way because I’ve never done that with my kids. I tend to forget that most people do. My husband and I have always talked with the kids interchangeably about a possible eventual husband or wife, boyfriend or girlfriend. I don’t think I’ve ever just assumed one of them was straight. I find that kind of silly, really, without some reason to think that. But, I’m not most people on that front and I know it. So… probably Oliver and Felicity do have those assumptions, at least a little. 

But… but Ellie’s so obviously in love with Sara. I think it went from being perceived as a cute kind of hero-worship of an older best friend to an ‘oh… OH… that’s not what this is at all’ realization by middle school at latest. Add to that that Ellie never once expresses an interest in boys and it’s pretty obvious to her parents. 

I don’t have planned to write any kind of conversation when it dawns on them that she’s gay. I guess I could. It would be a challenge to think about that from their perspective, either before or after it’s confirmed in the oneshot where Sara goes to prom. I’ll think about that. It’s a tempting idea, anon, and rough shoes for me to step into writing-wise. I’m straight, but I’m also someone who’s always made it clear to my kids that whatever their gender preference, the only way it matters to me is the extent to which it impacts the challenges in their lives. I’m more interested in watching them discover who they are than dictating to them who I think they should be. On the flip side, I watched my parents struggle through counseling and depression and blaming themselves after my brother came out when he was in high school. Oliver and Felicity would be somewhere in the middle and I don’t immediately know what that looks like. But it definitely is worth thinking about.

Reasons why I love the phantom of the opera community

-mostly everyone here is so nice. Like, are you guys angels or something because you’re such sweethearts most of the time?

-Most people here are really critical when it comes to character accuracy, and a lot of us hate the idea of Erik being rapey and sex obsessed, we hate the idea of Christine being weak and defenseless, and we hate the idea of Raoul being clueless and useless.

-A vast majority of the fandom is very feminist and/or very accepting of people from all races, sexualities, backgrounds etc. You guys are one of the most tolerant fandoms I’ve ever been in.

-Literally everyone here would absolutely take the chance to raise Erik and give him love/affection if the chance were given to us.

-THE FANFICTION AND ART IS SO GOOD. SO MANY OF YOU ARE SUCH AMAZING ARTISTS AND IT’S UNBELIEVABLE HOW AMAZING AND WELL WRITTEN AND DRAWN A LOT OF WORKS ARE. (Especially mod Erik’s artwork!!! Love you!!!)

-I’ve noticed a lot of people supporting the headcannon of Erik being asexual/demisexual and that just makes me happy on a personal level.

-You guys come up with the funniest jokes. Seriously, some of my favorite memes have come from the phantom fandom. You silly kids never fail to make me chuckle heartily with your dank memes.

-THE COSPLAY 🙏🙏🙏. I’ve seen some of the most incredible cosplay come from our community. A ton of people here are extraordinarily creative, and can come up with cosplay ideas that are so unique but still accurate to the characters.

-There is so little discourse here! I rarely see people fighting in this fandom, and honestly it’s so refreshing to have such little discourse (especially on tumblr).

-The fandom has introduced me to so many incredible musicals, a few of them being Cats, Spring Awakening, Next To Normal, Les Misérables, and Sweeney Todd.

-Most people here are very conscious when it comes to trigger warnings, and very few people here make fun of people’s triggers.

Feel free to re blog with your own reasons as to why you love our phantom community. I love you so much ❤️

Feel free to message me if you want to strike up a conversation, be friends, or just need someone to talk to

-Mod Christine

Ha ok, this is based off of this joke from Gravity Falls, the idea just came to me while I tried to fall asleep one night and wouldn’t leave me alone so!

Also bonus morning after:

Yes. Yes he did. And it’s all your fault, Missy.

May I request some lovely crime/gang aus?

yes you may, dear anon!

  • “it’s not everyday you’re mistaken for the newest member of one of the most dangerous criminal gangs in all of history, i think you’re the only one who’s realised i have NO idea what im doing. please please please dont’ say anything, i dont fancy dying just yet!”
  • the classic “we’re the heads from two rival gangs with nothing but guns, our amazing tactical intelligence and a hell of a lot of sexual tension.”
  • “what was the one thing i asked you to do? keep the hostage alive. and what did you do? NOT DO THAT, THAT’S FOR SURE.”
  • “i’ve had my fair share of hostages in my times, but for fuck’s sake you are by far the sassiest and most problematic hostage i’ve ever had. i don’t CARE IF YOU’RE UNCOMFORTABLE YOU’RE MY HOSTAGE WHAT PART OF THIS DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND”
  • “im trying to form a gang but so far it only consists of one person, wanna make it two?”
  • “i knew you were too perfect, of fucking course you had to be the leader of the mafia. of ALL things, the leader of the mafia???”
  • i’ve been trying to catch the anonymous leader of the most dangerous gang in the city, ffs it’s my best friend isn’t it
  • Person A is the kindest, sweetest person Person B has ever met. Unbeknown to Person B, Person A is completely different when it comes to their job; they’re ruthless, cold-blooded and cunning. B would never suspect a thing, until A gets caught that is…
  • “you are in fact the worst burglar i have ever seen”
    “how many burglars have you seen???”
    “exactly.”
  • this job would be a lot easier if you weren’t on my team, but i really don’t have the heart to tell you that you’re rubbish at this because the look on your face when i told you you could join me was just so… i’m cruel but im not THAT cruel ok??

Questlove and Lin-Manuel Miranda Give Details of The Hamilton Mixtape (Vanity Fair):

L.R.: Lin, did you always want Questlove to be involved with the cast album and this mixtape?

L-M.M.: That was the dream. The Roots played my Spring Fling senior year at [Wesleyan] college, and I was a huge fan of the Roots’ albums.

Q.: I didn’t think anything would affect me the way Fela! had. That was the loudest, most offensive, most immersive play I’ve ever seen. Everyone who sold me on Hamilton—Common, Latifah—all said the same thing: that I wouldn’t know what I was going into.

L.R.: Lin, it’s kind of amazing that you took Ron Chernow’s massive Hamilton biography on vacation and thought, Hamilton … hip-hop … eureka! Did you ever have any doubts about it?

L-M.M.: I never had any doubts about the idea. But the most nervous I was was when the first hip-hop artist came to see the show at the Public Theater. It was Busta Rhymes; he sat in the front row—but even if he sat in the back I would have seen him. You don’t miss Busta. He’s like Mount Rushmore to me. So when he came backstage and said he was so moved by it, I thought, We’re going to be O.K.

Q.: The brilliant thing about this whole project was and is that this project has legs beyond just the play and the cast album.

L.R.: In addition to rap, the Hamilton score has R&B, some jazz, and ballads. Is the Mixtapealbum going to be as musically varied? Who’s going to be on it?

Q.: So far, Busta Rhymes, Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, Latifah, Common, Chance the Rapper, and others. People are coming out of the woodwork, knocking on the door. Half the songs are cover versions of songs in the show, and the others are interpolations—we’ll take some of this, some of that, and make something new out of it.

L-M.M.: I’m not going to be on it because for me the goal is to keep this inspired by the original. But it is funny that this was my first idea, and now it’s come full cycle and coming after the show.

Q.: Hamilton is the balance that hip-hop needed. It’s changing the conversation. The amount of people in my apartment building treating me different now … This is a key moment for Broadway and for music.

HOW TO DEFEAT CYBERBULLIES

Okay so I have a friend who was getting cyber-bullied was in a situation in which she could not block them and I didn’t know what to tell her. THEN I CAME UP WITH THE MOST AMAZING IDEA I HAVE EVER HAD, PLEASE EVERYONE REBLOG THIS. So I told her to copy and paste the bee movie script into her messages and just respond with the script if they ever said anything mean. Next time they said something rude, she responded with the bee movie script. The guy said something along the lines of ‘what the fuck’ and then read through some of it saying ‘did you seriously fucking send me the bee movie script?’. Then, guess what she did. She sent the script again. The guy stopped talking. SOLUTION HAS BEEN FOUND. Every time someone sends you hate or is mean, respond with the bee movie script.

do you ever write something that totally changes your life? be it poetry or prose or fiction. it doesn’t matter if you started with an idea, a rough atmosphere or just the need to get your feelings out. but you start to grow with your story, to bleed with your characters until they fill the places between your fragile ribcage and the hard drums of your heartbeat. even if you never intended it to be such a big impact on your life, it suddenly becomes a part of your world. it’s one of the most terrifying yet amazing feelings I ever felt.

Sometimes I feel like Dan is underappreciated

I know what your thinking, “What?!? No it’s usually Phil that’s under appreciated!!” Well hear me out on this.

Think about it, we always mention Phil’s flaws and how they seem to be so perfect. We always talk about Phil’s talents like his singing, or knowing random facts, or his amazing editing skills. But no one ever talks about Dan.

No one talks about how Dan is an amazing actor and was made for the stage. No one talks about how he knows how to play instruments very well. No one ever talks about how Dan has such wonderful creative ideas that he manages to put a powerful message in a small/silly skit. Or even those times when Dan makes up little songs about the most random things, don’t you think that is amazing?

No one talks about how Dan use to be suicidal or how he use to hate who he was. How he managed to fight through that and still stands strong although in some videos you can see it in his eyes that he still gets those thoughts. No one talks about how he is always telling people to not be insecure even though you can tell he himself is insecure.

No one talks about how beautiful Dan is, not by his looks, but why who he really is. How he always has this amazing view on something and you can tell he is just itching to tell us or someone about it but he holds himself back because of those little insecurities we all have. Or how he always tries to be that dark and gloomy guy when we all know he is a kind hearted, lovable dork. Or how he always gets defensive towards his friends and puts his foot down when something seems unfair.

Everyone always gets angry when a post about Dan doesn’t mention Phil, but when was the last time you got angry when a post about Phil doesn’t mention Dan? When was the last time you got upset when someone said they loved Phil but not Dan?

We all always just focus on the meme side of Dan or just the “Model” side of Dan, but we never really do focus on the wonderful Human Being Dan really is.

Super Otayuri fic Recommendation

So, I’m reading what is possibly one of the most beautiful fics I’ve ever read, and it happens to be a Otayuri one, so I felt it was my duty to share it here.

The name is “Symphony in Four Movements” and is based on each song Otabek and Yuri have skated (Samarkand Overture, On love agape, Symphony no.9 and Allegro Appassionato) and it follows Otayuri’s encounters through time. Yes, it’s like past lives, which is an idea not very common, but really good. 

And the writer is AMAZING! This persons has a gift, I’m not kidding, it’s a real pleasure to read this fic.

So, what you waiting for? Click the link!

Something that's beautiful about moana besides everything

Is how they portrayed sailing and traveling and journeying across oceans as part of their heritage and their spirit as a people.

Like most people don’t know shit about the culture or history of Polynesia.

Like i think all I ever learned about the Polynesian islands even in world history was that they traveled very VERY far with simple boats.

Like the idea itself was just incredible because holy shit, traveling the ocean in heavy metal complex ships scares me, but these intrepid people built ships by hand with wood and sailed entire oceans?

I mean incredible.

I’m so glad this movie draws attention to this amazing history.

I want more people to know about their accomplishments and their ocean voyages.

So moana was super awesome and the music that plays as they’re sailing is probably my favorite because it’s inspiring as hell and it to me conveys the celebration of human exploration and more specifically, more importantly, the Polynesian people as seafaring explorers.

The Real Deal

by Andy Weir

“I tell ya, it’s the real deal!” Ray said. “The real deal!”

“Oh yeah?” Bobby replied. “Tell me more.”

“She’s the most amazing woman I’ve ever met!” He snatched his cigarettes from the coffee table. “I mean, we’ve only had one date, but wow! I never met a chick I could really talk to before, ya know?”

You mean so freaking much to me. You’re more than some person I know. You’re more than a source of happiness that I get high off of. You are an amazing person. If someone doesn’t see it, they missed out on so freaking much. People like you are rare. You’re artwork. You are one of the most special people I’ve ever met. I can’t believe how lucky I am to be in your life and that I’ve caught your eye and that we talk. I want to tell you this and more so badly because the idea of you feeling insecure or ignorant of your worth makes me want to cry. You are so beautiful to me, I write poems about you and the way you make me feel. Even the smallest thing makes me feel happy and inspired to write my heart out. Maybe I feel too much for you, but I can’t help it. You mean so freaking much to me.
