this will never get old okai

Okay but here’s the thing. When Cutter’s telling his backstory he says that Project Menagerie started in the late 1940s and he was a high school student. Late 40s can’t possibly be any earlier than 1947. And let’s say he was a senior about to graduate thus making him 18 since I certainly can’t believe he’d get held back a grade. This makes him born in 1929 at the very earliest. 

I’m assuming based on birth years Wolf 359 roughly modern day. 

That makes Cutter, at most, 88 when he died. And he looks great for 88, he really does. 

But Pryce describes him as the oldest man she’d ever met at the beginning of the finale. (Or, even if you think Hera is telling the story, she’s talking about the oldest man Pryce ever met). Which, okay, theoretically she’s never met any really old people so 88 is the absolute oldest person she’s ever met. 

Except Pryce’s name is on the Deep Space Manual with Carter’s who we know retired in 1992. That means that, even if they wrote that together almost immediately after meeting, she knew him by at least 1992. At this point, Cutter is only 63 at the very most. 

Does Pryce really expect me to believe she’s never met anyone older than 63 before? 

Or, which just occurred to me but I’ve now accepted as my personal canon, Pryce didn’t go digging into Matthew Neumann so Cutter never got around to telling her his true origin story and instead claimed to be like 500 or something and Pryce doesn’t give enough of a fuck about it to try and fact check.

emma omg i’ve never read or watched anything abt twilight, what have i missed out on

an abusive controlling relationship between a guy old enough to be he’s gf’s grandfather. said gf constantly putting herself down (usually to do with her looks). terrible anxiety rep that’s fixed after she gets her controlling bf back. oooooh plot twist the bf constantly has to try not to kill her. isn’t that so amazing of him for not giving into the urge to kill her. it’s okay he only causes non fatal wounds (oh no wait not tru), but it’s so romantic

the only redeeming quality are the side characters. i would actually recommend reading it for them. they’re fantastic. (spoilers ahead to make a point) a civil war veteran who got caught up in vampire wars but eventually escaped because his super-powered empathy caused him such distress when killing and deals with a lot of trauma from this? a woman who unashamedly wants children and is a mechanic, killed her rapists in the most traumatising (for them) way possible? a girl who was dumped by her fiancé for her cousin then ends up having to follow all the orders of her ex due to supernatural circumstances, says a big fuck you to the universe and is unashamedly angry and justified in her anger? another girl who was chucked into an insane asylum and lost all her memory. 

all the side characters are amazing. and they’re so fleshed out. it’s just dealing with bella and edwards shit tbh. i empathise with bella but it’s a struggle reading from her perspective and seeing all the self-hatred and anxiety and submission which is romanticised so very much.

Fireheart made another appearance today . He was cold and wet from melting snow. Still not sure if he’s a feral , stray , or someone’s pet . He’s got that “outdoor” cat feel and look to him . Fireheart has never purred around me. But he’s used to me enough that I can pet him and pick him up without getting bit or scratched. I’d been worried about him since it’s been getting into the negatives at night. But apparently he’s doing okay. FIV was here about 4 years ago and killed off a lot of the strays and ferals. Fireheart is at least 3-4 years old . I’m pretty sure he’s the son of one of the big toms that died. I don’t want to start trouble with my neighbors since there’s a lot of outdoor cats that have homes. Plus I have two Tom cats in my house that already don’t like Fireheart . So the best I can do is give him some food and pull burrs out of his big fluffy coat. He meowed at me today . With how cold it’s been I got a feeling that he’s a stray . Maybe someone’s pet got pregnant by the roaming toms and they let the kittens they didn’t want go. It’d explain why he’s outside when it’s -3f ( like Tuesday ) and is used to people. Stay strong Fireheart winter is halfway finished.


@trapperweasel


what do you think?

So ,I’m a music teacher and every year we have what are called “walk through observations”. Basically, this means that 4 times a year the principal or vice principal comes into my class to assess my teaching. Fine. Sure. No problem.
Well, today I was doing an activity with my 1st graders called “Musical Groceries”. Basically, they make up a fake shopping list and then together we figure out what the rhythm of the words on the list is. To do that, a small group of students plays the beat on the conga drum while the rest of the students move around the room while chanting the word. It sounds weird but it’s a great way for the kids to figure out the relationship between syllables and rhythm.
They quickly get bored of walking the rhythm so I let them come up with their own ways of moving around the room.( skipping, hopping, etc) One student suggested they hop around the room like frogs, way down low to the ground. Okay fine.
Or it was fine until my vice principal walked in to do my observation only to find 20 seven year olds hopping around the room like a hoard of little hob-goblins, rhythmically chanting “BREAD! BREAD! BREAD!” while five other kids played ominous beats in a drum circle.
I have never seen anyone look so confused in my life and I really don’t want to know the rating I got on my observation.

I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to have been in the queer movement for 20+ years, to have studied queer theory, to have contributed to you potentially enjoying the rights you have today because I was part of a groundswell of lobbying and direct action in the 1990s….

…to have a 15 year old who’s spent maybe 8 months being political and has never inquired about queer history anonymously message me, “EXCUSE ME QU**R IS A SLUR LMAO OMG EMBARRASSSING AN aCTUAL ADULT WHO THINKS IT’S OKAY TO USE QU**R!~!!!!”

Dude, we are a slur. Queer folks are a slur to conservative straight people. Everything we are will be used as a slur by everyone who hates us. Gay is a slur. Lesbian is a slur. People will try to use all of our words against us. Don’t fucking let them get into your head to the point at which you’re telling actual queer people not to use the words we’ve used to unite ourselves and empower ourselves for decades. 

cinderella: redo

so i was watching cinderella while doing my nails and waiting for them to dry which was clearly a Mistake because now i can’t help but think -

the evil stepmother was always evil, okay. say her abuse of her own daughters was different than that of cinderella’s - but it was still abuse. giving them impossible expectations, telling them they were never good enough, never pretty enough, never smart enough. and then she gets married, and anastasia and drizella are ecstatic because this man seems kind and warm and maybe just maybe he can temper their mother, maybe with him around she won’t be so cruel. so they’re on their very best behavior in the beginning, they do just as their mother taught - they trot out their best upper court manners in an attempt to get their new stepfather to like them. but it just comes off as cold and snooty and they’re trying, they are, they’re just bad at it. and they see how he is with cinderella, the smiling girl their own age, and they are jealous. they don’t mean to be, they try not to be, they know it isn’t becoming of young ladies. but she gets hugs and kisses and affection and they get rulers slapped on their hands when they reach for desert and sharp jabs to their sides when they slouch and - soon they hate cinderella, not for anything she’s done, but for what she has and they dont

but then her father dies. and it’s all a tumble of things and cinderella is crying and they’ve lost their only chance at escaping their mother’s clutches and it’s terrible. and everything settles and there’s no reason to be jealous anymore but resentment is hard to let go of and they don’t know what to do. they’re only kids too after all. and they’re so terribly bad at comforting people, they can do flowery words and know all the right bows but cinderella is so sad and they just don’t know what to do with that, because they’re supposed to be sisters but they’re not even friends

and slowly but surely their mother starts abusing cinderella, starts making her a maid in her own home, and she’s their mother, what are anastasia and drizella supposed to do? she rules them with an iron fist, and cinderella doesn’t even like them anyway, it’s none of their business.

except one night anastasia crawls into her sister’s bed in the middle of the night and wakes her up. “i was thirsty,” she explains, eyes wide and shiny, and they’re bad at this with other people but drizella has no problems with pulling anastasia into her arms. the younger girl clutches her sister and continues, “i was thirsty and i went down to the kitchen to get some water and - and cinderella is still up! she’s doing the dishes, and she should be asleep, mom is going to make her make breakfast in the morning and -” she cuts herself off with a hiccup and whispers, “it’s not fair.”

“life isn’t fair,” drizella says, echoing one of their mother’s favorite phrases. but her sister is staring at her with wet eyes, and it’s not like their mother is likely to get up before sunrise anyway, she hates waking up, so she pulls herself and anastasia out of bed and off they go.

“For me my first memory of Carrie was when I was 11 years old. Very new to the film industry, never been on a film set before, but what Carrie did was just made the whole experience to me fun. It wasn’t intimidating, it wasn’t daunting in any way it was just fun. And, you know being inside the ewok costume you get very hot and I remember every time I took the head off Carrie would be there checking on I was okay. She had chocolate milk and cookies. You know, whether she thought I needed. And she kinda became a very sort of on-set mother figure. Yeah, I just remember her humour, just making the whole experience fun.” — Warwick Davis about Carrie Fisher

  • Mabel Pines chose love over fear and bet the whole universe on the word of a con man and won.
  • Mabel Pines didn’t get the summer romance she was looking for but in the end she was okay with that because she learned to love herself.
  • Mabel Pines thinks that every woman she meets is beautiful, including herself, and if you don’t understand how radical that is you’ve never been a twelve-year-old-girl.
  • Mabel Pines met a creature she idolized and it told her she wasn’t good enough and she punched it right in its smug stupid face.
  • Mabel Pines was terrified of growing up because of everything she might lose, and the narrative didn’t blame her or break her for feeling that way.
  • Mabel Pines cared more about friends and family than magic and mysteries and not only did the narrative validate that, her scrapbook ended up being the most important object in the show.
  • Mabel Pines is glitter and sweaters and cheesy pop songs and blurry group selfies and the biggest smile in the crowd and she’s also so, so, so much more.

This isn’t a “your fave could never” because those are weird and needlessly combative, but look, I know what kind of narratives girls get. I thought that my fave could never. And then she fucking did.

  • Shinji Ikari: Shut up, Ed, you don't even have the worst father in your own series! My disappeared for years and then told me to get in this giant-
  • Eren Jaeger/Yeager/???: Get in the giant? Bitch, please!
  • Rin Okumura: You're all adorable.

Hiroko Katsuki is good mom. Hiroko Katsuki is best mom. 

But let’s talk about Toshiya for a second?

Let’s talk about Toshiya Katsuki who never told his son that it’s not okay to cry. 

Toshiya Katsuki, who is literally never not smiling, even though life can’t be easy for the patriarch of a family who owns an inn in a rapidly-declining tourist town.

Toshiya Katsuki, who gets silly drunk and draws a face on his belly and makes his wife giggle like a schoolgirl. 

I think there was a point in Toshiya’s life when he realized that neither of his children were going to follow their prescribed roles–Yuuri was not going to take over the inn after his parents got old, and Mari was not going to get married and have children–and indeed that they were switching those roles completely around. Mari is a pragmatist, and good with her hands. She wants to live as quiet and comfortable a life as possible. Yuuri is a romantic. He spends his days with music following him everywhere he goes–with a song in his head and his heart on his sleeve and sometimes that heart breaks.

There was a point in Toshiya’s life when he was faced with his son weeping, just completely losing it over something seemingly inconsequential, and he sat down and held him and told him it was all going to be alright. No bootstrapping, no belittling. Just love. 

There was a point in Toshiya’s life when he was faced with his daughter, stoney-faced and stiff upper lipped. Hurting so much that he could feel it in his own bones, but unwilling to show it. And Toshiya sat with her all night and waited to see if she would talk about it. He didn’t force her to talk about it, or tell her to go talk to her mother. He waited. 

There is a time in Toshiya’s life when he meets a young man who loves his son so much that it is almost visible. A young man he has practically watched grow up, through television screens and on the pages of magazines. A young man he welcomes into his family as easy as taking a breath because Yuuri loves him, and because he needs a family. 

And when that young man comes to him and says How, please, tell me how I show him that he’s everything, Toshiya can only tell him to keep doing what he’s doing. Because Yuuri is a romantic.

There comes a time in Toshiya Katsuki’s life when he is sending his son to Russia, to live with the man he now calls his fiance, and he thinks of the baby he held, and the toddler whose bruises he kissed, and the boy whose heart he saw broken time and time again. And he looks at the man in front of him and knows that his son’s heart is safe.

“I won’t say be careful with him,” Toshiya says to Viktor then. “Because I know you will. So I’ll say…you have my blessing. For whatever comes next. And always remember that you have a home here, in Japan. Both of you.”

And Viktor? Viktor is somewhere in the middle of Yuuri and Mari. He is both emotional and cold at intervals. But Toshiya is confident that he has the tools to be a good father to him, too.

Can I get some Pidge and Coran headcanons

Coming at you with that NICHE MARKET

  • Coran will never admit it but he’s like 70% sure Pidge is actually eight-years-old (or the equivalent in Altean years). He thinks Pidge is like, a super-accomplished baby.
    • Lance: Okay but like… He’s not wrong lmfao (dodges a wrench) Hey! Coran, Pidge is throwing a tantrum again!!!!!
    • Coran: Oh dear, looks like Pidge is overdue for a nap :( (dodges a screwdriver)
    • Pidge: I hate this fucking family!!!!! >8C
  • Pidge offhandedly mentions during dinner that she’s trying to learn Altean and Coran is like (slams down spork) I WILL BE YOUR TUTOR. He gets very into it. He even codes up a space version of kahoot. He also baby proofs the Castle’s version of Killer Rosetta Stone®
  • Coran: Oh, hello Pidge! I’ve been looking all over for y-
    Pidge: (bolts)
    Coran: (immediately gives chase) YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE OF US THAT CAN FIT IN THE VENTS, PIDGE!!
    Pidge: I’M NOT CLEANING THE FREAKING VENTS AGAIN, GO AWAY CORAN.
    • Pidge: Why do the vents even need to be clean, I hate this family so much
    • Lance: I’ll trade med bay duty with you for a day if you want
    • Pidge: Deal.
  • Coran brings Pidge along every time he goes hunting for ship parts because Pidge can cry on command. It’s a very effective tactic for speeding up negotiations.
  • Pidge: (downs a cup of nutritional goo like a shot)
    Shiro: What are you doing?
    Pidge: (slams cup down) Coran keeps calling me ‘Number 5′ and I am determined to prove him wrong. 
  • Pidge is honestly blown away by Coran’s brilliance?? Like, the space uncle is usually used as comedy relief, but he’s honestly so freaking smart and Pidge is like (tears in her eyes) I Would Die For You Coran.
    • Coran is equally impressed by Pidge, because she’s so small and young but so brilliant? He constantly tells her how she would’ve fit in and even shone on Altea. 
    • At first Pidge thinks he’s being patronizing, ‘oh look at how hard the Earthling tries’, but then she realizes that no. Coran honestly thinks that highly of her. He gets misty-eyed whenever he talks about how Pidge and Hunk would’ve flourished in the classrooms on Altea.
  • Coran: Okay, but are you sure you don’t have any Altean blood in you? At all? A great-great-great-great-great to the eighth degree great grandmother, perhaps?
    • Pidge: Nope. I’m from the midwest. Which probably makes me some kind of alien, but still a human one.
  • Coran tries to stealth-parent Pidge, but Pidge always manages to turn it around on him.
    • Coran tries to convince Pidge to take a break and eat. Five minutes later he’s in the kitchen making tea for them both and he has no idea how he got there.
    • Coran tries to get Pidge to take a nap. Ten minutes later he’s giving her and Hunk a crash-course lesson on how to maintain the Lions in a worst-case-scenario pinch.
    • Coran: ????
  • Pidge: (cackles as she programs the training bots to chase Lance around the training room)
    Shiro: Oh geez, don’t worry Coran I’ll stop her.
    Coran: (smiling fondly) (glances over at Allura) Ah, don’t worry Shiro. The Princess used to be just like this when she was younger, and she turned out alright!

I’m going to change gears from my usual anti-Kylo Ren tirade for this post:

I am really fucking tired of seeing Anakin Skywalker apologists blame Mace Windu, or otherwise imply that Mace Windu deserved his fate, just because he happened to rightfully believe that the man was not emotionally equipped to be a Jedi.

Here is an unpleasant truth for all of us: Mace Windu was right.

Anakin wasn’t equipped to be a Jedi.  He wasn’t equipped to live with Jedi restrictions the way the others were.  He wasn’t equipped to have to deal with political machinations or secret Sith scheming.  He wasn’t equipped to leave a loving mother.  He wasn’t equipped to balance Palpatine’s gaslighting with his Jedi trained perspective and self-awareness.

He wasn’t even equipped to leave the Jedi Order of his own free will and use his training and skills and connections to establish a life that suited him better.

Mace was right to be wary of Anakin.  Because Anakin did end up turning on the Order.  And Mace absolutely did not deserve what happened to him.

Mace Windu did not yank Anakin off of Tatooine while leaving his mother behind.

Mace Windu did not create the culture that raised Jedi from birth, without standard family attachments.  Mace was in fact as much a victim of that culture as Anakin or any other Jedi.

Mace Windu did not create the code or restrictions that forbid Anakin from marrying Padme.

Mace Windu was never cruel to Anakin.  He may have distrusted him or not been as warm as Anakin would have liked, but you know what?  He had no responsibility to do so.  He wasn’t Anakin’s master.  He’s certainly not a brother or father figure to him.  SO WHAT if he distrusted Anakin.  He’s allowed to have a fucking opinion.

Newsflash: in your life, you’re going to meet people who don’t trust you.  You’re going to meet people who dislike you.  You’re going to meet people who don’t know what to do with you.  And guess what?  You get the fuck over it.

There was no indication that Mace Windu was unfair to Anakin.  He opposed Anakin being a master.  Okay.  Anakin was twenty-three years old.  We have never seen a master that age.  Obi-Wan was still a Padawan at that age.  Anakin may have been a war hero, but that doesn’t mean that Mace can’t have legitimate misgivings about Anakin’s emotional readiness for the job.

There is no indication that Mace Windu mistreated Anakin.  If anything, he tried to protect him.  He knew Anakin and Palpatine were friends and he tried to spare Anakin from having to be part of the confrontation.

If you can’t defend Anakin Skywalker’s choices without slamming a man who did nothing to deserve his murder at Anakin’s hands, then you have to wonder how defensible Anakin actually is.

so maybe, i needed to lose you
maybe i had to cry myself to sleep
every night for months after you
left to realize that my tears
weren’t going to change your mind
weren’t going to bring you back

maybe you won’t come back
maybe i’ll never see you again
and we won’t grow old together
and i won’t get to look at your smile
and think that i got so lucky
because in the midst of a war
i found love

but that’s okay
one day i’ll be someone’s wife
someone’s mom
maybe i’ll still name my son after you
but i’ll live my life knowing
i gave him a name that will make waves
a name people will move oceans for
fight wars for
live their lives for

you would have died for me
but you wouldn’t have lived for me
i wish that it was all a dream but i
know that you wanted someone like
her more than you wanted someone like
me and that’s just something i have to live with

—  a love (i think) i had to lose pt. 1
I can’t count the times I’ve screamed into my pillow out of anger and sadness. I’ve let rage, hatred, loneliness, and pain consume for so long and silently dealt with it. There have been way too many times where I have locked myself in the bathroom as the world around me fell apart, crying silently sitting in the edge of the tub, constantly repeating to myself that it would be okay, when in reality I was never okay. Each and every time, I’ve only had myself. Each and every time I’d wash my face off and come out as if nothing happened, a fake smile on my face because I was not going to show the world it had gotten the best of me. I’m too old to feel this way. To still feel this way. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been at work and had to excuse myself in order to lock myself in a stall and breathe. Once again the the pain, traveling through my veins making my palms turn into fists. I only have myself. And I would repeat to myself the same thing, everything will be okay…I’m too old to feel this way..I shouldn’t feel this way. But it’s not okay, and the pain is there I can’t deny it, I can’t ignore it and I can’t seem to get rid of it..and as always, I’ve only got myself.

  • REMEMBER MS. CASTELLAN WHO IS STILL HOME WAITING, WATCHING, HOPING AGAINST ALL HOPE THAT HER LUKE WILL COME BACK
  • REMEMBER THE PARENTS AND FAMILIES OF THESE KIDS WHO ARE CONSTANTLY HOPING THEIR CHILDREN DONT DIE, HOPING THEY MADE THE RIGHT DECISION
  • RACHEL ELIZABETH DARE WHO NEVER WANTED TO BE IN THIS MESS BUT IS HERE ANYWAY, AND HAS SEEN THINGS JUST AS BAD AS ANYONE ELSE
  • WHO’S AT PRESENT TEARING HER HAIR OUT WONDERING IF SHE’S BROKEN BECAUSE HER SIGHT ISN’T WORKING
  • MEG WHO IS THE AGE OF A SIXTH GRADER AND KEEPS RUNNING BACK INTO THE ARMS OF HER FATHER’S MURDERER
  • THE AMAZONIANS THE PEOPLE OF WONDER WOMAN HERSELF GET OVER LOOKED
  • I SEEM TO REMEMBER SEVERAL PIVITOL SCENES THAT HAPPEN AT THEIR WAREHOUSE AND SEVERAL PIVITOL SCENE THAT INVOLVED THE DEATHS OF MANY AMAZONIANS AND HUNTERS
  • THALIA, WHO LOST EVERYTHING ONCE, TWICE, THEN WOKE UP AND THOUGHT SHE HAD EVERYTHING BACK, ONLY TO LOSE IT AGAIN AND AGAIN AND THEN GET IT BACK ONCE MORE, ONLY TO WONDER IF HER ONLY LIVING RELATIVE IS ALIVE EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. AND WATCHING HER SISTERS DIE IN BATTLE, MOST TIMES LEADING THEM INTO THESE SITUATIONS, AND VERY RARELY DO I SEE PEOPLE RECOGNIZE THIS
  • RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANT, THE FALLEN, THE ONES WITH NO NAMES, THE ONES WHO HAVE LETTERS GET SENT HOME SAYING, “We regret to inform you…” RECOGNIZE THE ONES WHO HAVE HOMES BUT CAN’T GO BACK, THE ONES WHO NEVER HAVE ANY LETTERS SENT HOME, AND THEIR PARENTS CONSTANTLY FRETTING OVER WHERE THEY ARE, THE ONES WHO’S BUNKS WILL BE EMPTY FOREVER, THE ONES WHO LEAVE CAMP WANTING TO NEVER HAVE TO SURVIVE ANOTHER WAR AGAIN, ONLY TO SEE THE ONES THEY LOVED BLOODIED AND FALLEN. AND RECOGNIZE THE ONES WHO ARE STILL ALIVE, BUT HAVE TRAUMAS NO ONE CAN FIX, AND ONLY GET WORSE THE LONGER THEY GO WITHOUT HELP, RECOGNIZE THAT NO ONE AT CAMP HALF-BLOOD, CAMP JUPITER, VALHALLA OR THE GREAT HOUSE, IS OKAY. RECOGNIZE THEY CARRY THE WEIGHT OF A THOUSAND DEATHS ON THEIR SHOULDERS.
  • THESE
  • ARE
  • CHILDREN
  • THESE ARE CHILDREN PEOPLE BARELY OVER 18 YEARS OLD BEING THROWN INTO A WORLD OF MONSTERS AND CHAOS AND GODS WHO FUCK THINGS UP. NONE OF THEM DESERVE TO BE FORGOTTEN OR PUSHED TO THE SIDE, IT DOESN’T MATTER IF THEY’VE ONLY BEEN MENTIONED ONCE, NEVER HAD THEIR NAME UTTERED, OR ARE CONSTANTLY IN THE SPOTLIGHT. ALL OF THEM HAVE BEEN THROUGH HELL, FIGURATIVELY OR LITERALLY, AND DESERVE TO HAVE AT LEAST SOME RECOGNITION FOR THAT.
  • ANY DEMIGOD/MAGICIAN/VALKYRIE/DWARF/ELF I’VE FORGOTTEN, WHO’VE LIVED THROUGH HELL AND ARE STILL STANDING. WHO’VE LIVED THROUGH HELL AND HAVEN’T GIVEN UP. ALL WHO STILL STAND AND FIGHT FOR A HAPPIER ENDING.
  • If you’ll excuse me I must cry

Sorry if that seemed mean. I just get really worked up about this subject.

I think the moral of this is that gods are horrible beings who claim to be perfect but are worse than the mortals they rule over.
