this took like what

bigopinion-smallvoice  asked:

Ok, so Garroth is known for being good at sports, Vylad is really smart, so what does Zane do? Well, what if he took like drama and dance and just the arts programs in highschool and college. The reason no one ever talked about how he took arts programs was because arts weren't as big of a subject as sports and math were. Imagine Zane being really good at dancing and acting, and really the arts in general. Nobody ever knew, but one day when they see him dance everyone is just like "Wait..what?"

No one actually ever told him he was good at it like they did for Garroth or Vylad so he just assumes its nothing special

((Also Theatre kid Zane omg))

I feel like if the fantasy episode is an olitz based ep, it'll be shonda's excuse not to give olitz a true endgame. She will say something like "well since Olivia took this turn, they cannot be together" what do you think?

the fantasy episode iz Olivia imagining life without Fitz winning the election.   so the real question iz how does Olivia think her life would’ve turned out?   and i doubt Olivia thinks that other life would include Fitz becuz Fitz iz still married.

as for the others…  Huck iz homeless.   Abby iz couch-surfing at Olivia’s house.   Quinn iz still in California with Jesse.   Jake iz at the Pentagon.   and Rowan and Liv are not on speaking terms.   that’s where the story should pick-up.

now where it goes from there iz anybody’s guess, but the more i think about it… it’s NOT gonna be about Olitz.   it’s gonna be about Olivia.    -redork

Is there anything you wanted readers to learn from reading this fic? + Abyss

Maybe this response is more geared toward writers than readers.

Abyss was maybe a longer time in coming than I’d first realized. I wrote a poem called Prayer from the Abyss about 15 years ago; around the same time I’d written a philosophical essay about water (mostly informed by writings by Thich Nhat Hanh) from which I utilized most of the musings in the first scene. 

I’ve always hated the Flood story in the Bible. When I first read Good Omens (Dec 2014) my headcanon was pretty immediate that Crowley would not be on the Ark. Yet I kept reading fanfic that put him there. I was not afraid to trust my instincts and write something different. It just took a while to get to where I was ready to write it. I’m a fairly devout person plus the fic took me to some personal places.

What I would like writers and readers (bless them) to know is 1. Don’t be afraid to write something different. 2. Keep everything you write; you never know what you may be able to reuse or reformulate (it’s yours; you can do that). 3. Reach out to those in your writing community as a resource; many are happy to help. 4. Be open to messages of faith that come from unexpected places.

Y’all seem to think that ‘Respect’ing other human beings means simply being nice to them, accepting their views, and excusing their actions. But…?

Respecting a person as a PERSON means that you’re acknowledging that they exist. That’s it. Speaking about them, as if they are real. That’s what it means to respect a person as a person. You can disagree and downright condemn a person’s beliefs while still acknowledging that they are a person. Because we, as people, are perfectly capable of doing terrible things and still being people. We’re capable of bad, just like we’re capable of good. The point of respecting a person as a PERSON is not accepting their views. It is not sympathizing with them. It is not giving them the benefit of the doubt. And it is not allowing them to continue to hurt you or your people without consequence. It is not excusing them. It is not surrender. 

Respecting a person is realizing that they are still a person saying these terrible things. Not excusing, forgiving, approving, or supporting these terrible things and ideas, but knowing that it was a human itself behind these actions. A person is not suddenly subhuman just because they have terrible ideologies. They’re still a person. Because people do and can have terrible, unforgivable beliefs. And do do unthinkable things. But respecting them as a person is not forgetting that they’re a human. You’re not fighting a monster (Though, a monster in this context would of course be the harmful ideals spread, and the stigma that it both caused and was generated from. Etc.) But you’re fighting another human being.

Now, this by no means should ever weaken your resolve to fight and rise against ideas, campaigns, people that seek to degrade you and oppress you and make “jokes” (can you tell that I literally do not support Felix worth a damn.) at the expense of your suffering. If anything, I feel as if viewing them as a person (read: not forgiving or excusing them. But acknowledging that they are a person.) can only strengthen your fight. The second you fight as if you’re fighting a human being, is the moment that people around you begin to understand why you’re fighting and gain the will to fight themselves. Because they’re humans too. 

People on this site are so quick to completely forget the humanity of the other people on this site over something as remedial as shipping Peridot with Lapis over Amethyst. Do not weaken your own arguments, your own voices, and your own points by dropping your voice as if it were to regard and speak to subhumans. 

Do not let the forces you fight drop your battle from your own hands. You hold it firmly, back straight, and presented at the human being that pushed you, and didn’t expect you to push back. Make them realize that they are not subhuman. Let them know that you, as a human being, are speaking to them, as a human being, on a battle field that they do not want to to be leveled and fair. Let them know that they are not subhuman, even if their beliefs are garbage. Let them know, they’re not lesser as people. 

But as a human being, their actions are unacceptable. And inhuman. Allow them the privilege to feel ashamed. Do not give them the idea that, as a ‘subhuman’, these actions are expected and allowed of them. Let them know that it’s wrong. Let them know.

And that you, as a human being, will not stand for it. 

Don’t excuse them. But see them for what they are.

Keep your vision clear, and your voice true. Know that you do not owe them kindness. But know the force that opposes you. 

Know them in a way that, in some cases, they will refuse to know you.

That’s how you win wars, my friends.
