cis LG:literally have been pushing for the exclusion of trans people since the beginning
cis LG:push politics that sacrifice us trans people and concerns for things like gay marriage, because us dying isn't considered important enough or marketable enough to the straights
cis LG:have caused more persecution over my non-mono identity (as well as with many others,) than even the straights have, created more bi exclusive insults, and tried to have us banned over and over from the event (Pride) that a bi woman created.
cis LG:protest the use of alternate, more accepting community labels that make us feel more comfortable and safe
cis LG:mock neurodivergent labels, trash PoC identities, and speak over intersex people
us:use the word queer to identify ourselves and our politics that oppose all this
cis LG:idk it just seems super homophobic, like you're trying to split the community against us and make gay people seem evil or something, like homophobes would do. very suspicious that you would start this all of sudden, if you weren't just homophobic. stop creating a homophobic divide by identifying as a slur, okay?
so I met up with some friends at the edge of the night
For @hansolosbutt - remember we were talking about Jake having panic attacks? Yeeeeeh I finally wrote the fic. I have a midterm tomorrow and this is an excellent way of spending my time! hastily written and unproofread and idk how i feel about it but ANYWAY
It’s never happened before.
Of all the explanations Amy can come up with – of all the
reasons for her own immobility, for her own shock and hesitation – the fact
that she has never actually seen him like this before is what she thinks is the
reason for her irrational surge of fear.
It’s not like Amy’s never seen someone have a panic attack
Amy knows panic attacks. She is intimately familiar with
panic attacks. She has had them before, herself, coached herself through them
and been coached through them by others, felt the iron clamp over her chest and
heard the disjointed muddle of her own thoughts, known the dizziness and the
all-consuming paralyzing anxiety, freezing her limbs into place.
For God’s sake, Jake
has calmed her down from a panic attack before.
But she’s her. Amy
is Amy, too high-strung for her own
good, battling with anxiety ever since her teenage years, bordering on neurotically
organized and tightly wound. Panicking is familiar to her. Panicking is, if
she’s honest, normal, for her.
They’re at a crime scene with the Sarge, investigating a
homicide case like they’ve done thousands of times before. The dead man’s
laying on the ground where he was left four hours before, the bullet through
his head leaking a small stain of blood onto the carpet under his face. The
spatter of blood around the crown of his face looks like a constellation,
stains dark and browning against the threadbare fuzz that Amy is sure must
have, once upon a time, been white. And Amy looks around to ask her partner (her partner, who she’s seen face down
mean twice his size brandishing guns and laugh off bags of dismembered fingers
like it’s no big deal) if he has any ideas about the suspect, when she feels
her eyebrows lower automatically on her brow and a thrill of surprise rush
through her midriff.
It takes her a minute to realize.
The thing is, when Amy has panic attacks, she starts
hyperventilating. Her breath starts coming in short gasps and her whole body
starts trembling and she looks and sounds a mess, gulping in air to compensate
for the sudden lack in her bloodstream.
When Jake has panic attacks, it seems, he stops breathing
You don’t get to spend 2 seasons ranting, belittling and down right ridiculing Carol Peletier and her fan base AND then nonchalantly expect to be welcomed by the very people you personally trashed, labeled and mocked… because now suddenly the object of your malice has become a person of interest and your “hate” is becoming is harder and harder to sell.
You don’t get to spend 2 seasons using your personal blog as a platform for Carol related HATE, through which you consistently and almost fanatically tried to downplay and dismiss her characters “role” and “importance” to the TWD story….only to “change your mind” because now even to you it’s become more than a little obvious that your effort to lower Carol’s relevance in TWD is harder and harder to sell.
You don’t get to spend 2 seasons “speculating”, claiming insider TWD knowledge and more or less taunting the Carol fan base with redemption death scenarios and the repetitive “your favorite will die too” rhettoric…only to “change your mind” because now Carol’s character has reached a higher status in TWD cast and the “gushing” sessions focused on the objects of your affection (Rick and Daryl) without including Carol’s influence are getting harder and harder to sell.
You don’t get to spend 2 seasons posting and spreading your “perceptions” and negative “assumptions” as if they were actual FACTS, and claiming that you KNOW Carol’s state of mind, motivations and personal feelings about herself and her arc…only to “change your mind” because now that we are getting CANON FACTS on screen, your manipulations and self assuredness are likely getting harder and harder to sell.
You don’t get to spend 2 seasons “scoffing”, ridiculing and attacking anyone who dared to praise Carol’s leadership skilled potential or even suggest that she very well could be trusted and seen as equal to Rick mighty Grimes…only to “change your mind” because now the scenes we are seeing on screen and TPTB interviews back up exactly THAT very thing. You know the “thing” you didn’t want!?
With quotes like this;
“Leadership is about making very, very difficult calls and then taking responsibility for the outcome of those calls. And I think that’s what Carol did.” - Scott Gimple
"Out of everybody, Carol probably got there (realizing how dangerous survivors are) before Rick but Rick has certainly caught up. Those two seem to be the linchpins of the group waiting for the others to catch up with them” - Andrew Lincoln
Your “Carol is not important enough and not worthy enough to have Ricks trust” line, is not just harder and harder to sell but maybe even impossible.
You don’t get to spend 2 seasons of labelling Carol with terms such as cold, stupid, remorseless, self-righteous, ruthless, dark, unfeeling, without humanity, villain-like…only to “change your mind” because now Carol’s return, reintegration and emotional reveal has literally proven YOU completely WRONG.
You don’t get to spend 2 seasons doing everything to downplay, minimize and brush off the significance of Carol and Daryl’s bond, accusing Carylers of being deluded and obsessed with ambiguous statements only to break your own rule and do the very same in your “anyone but Carol” shipping…only to “change your mind” because now it’s obvious that CARYL still has a chance to exist and contrary to your own prediction - Daryl DID NOT shun or turn Carol away after their reunion.
Your CARYL “opinion” has always been a tough sell around here but I am betting Season 5 has made that “sale” impossible!
Last but not least - you can’t possibly expect a warm and fuzzy welcome from shippers you spent all this time mocking, ridiculing, bashing, threatening and dismissing as Delusional, Old, Insecure, Obsessive and “bat-shit” crazy!
You might be developing amnesia but most Carol and CARYL fans are not and if you have already forgotten the HATE you posted, we have all kinds of screenshots to jog your memory.
help i have fallen down the trash hole and that trash hole is labeled aurora/snow
here is what we canonically know about aurora:
she’s beauty, she’s grace, she’s miss united states
seriously, she’s probably the most cheerful girl alive
it’s pretty much impossible not to love her
she has a way protective fairy godmother
she’s optimistic about her life and the way things are going
she was never raised with any courtly expectations at all, unless the fairies instilled some of that in her
here’s what i think about aurora that is not canonical at all:
she’s fairly self sufficient, due to the fact that her guardian fairies are pretty inept
she’s probably kind of a chatterbox, and can and will make friends with literally everyone if she’s given the chance to
she takes very well to the throne, and she’s a breath of fresh air in the kingdom considering how shit of a king her father was
she’s wonderful with dignitaries and balls and negotiations and has maleficent to deal with any battles needed
Her mother is still alive, and they get on beautifully.
she likes parties and fancy dresses and visiting with her people.
when she isn’t required to be elsewhere, she rides her horse out to the moors for some time to herself among the fairies and magic.
here is what we canonically know about snow white:
she’s spent like ten years completely isolated from people
she’s a little bit awkward and not great with words but she’ll still start conversations despite being blunt
she has a “defiant spirit”
she spent seven years learning how to be a lady
she likes animals a lot
she’s fundamentally very kind, if a bit shy
here’s what i think about snow white that is not canonical at all:
she’s probably grown very comfortable with being dirty at this point in her life, to the point where william has to remind her to bathe when important dignitaries visit, much to her dislike
she, william, and eric have no real idea how courts are supposed to work. william has the benefit of his father’s teachings, and so is the authority there, but he has his hands full trying to convince snow and eric that they should follow the proper ways of doing things.
she likes animals better than people, for sure.
she’s good at warrioring, comfortable in armor and trousers, but shit at treaties and negotiating and fine speeches in front of her people. william helps write speeches
she may be uncomfortable with talking but when she’s comfortable enough to do so, she has a sharp tongue and a complete inability to know when she should stop.
here is why i think aurora and snow should be girlfriends and make out a lot:
snow is kind of shy and aurora is so bubbly and outgoing they would temper each other’s extremes
snow would be so worried about trying to get courtly rules right and be as polite as she’s expected to for everyone and aurora would just show up and take her on queenly picnics barefoot and basically have like zero boundaries when it comes to etiquette
they both feel way more comfortable in the moors/sanctuary with the fairies than they do in the human world
awkward dancing at balls
technically elle fanning is taller than kristen stewart but just imagine tiny aurora in her court dress standing on her tiptoes to kiss snow in her own court attire (tunic and leggings, most likely)
you just know snow rides super wildly and aurora squeals and hangs on tight but loves the speed
i need you to imagine eric and diaval hanging out snarking and probably drinking a lot. also phillip and william hanging out, being pretty and kind of clueless
Brina: Activists were picking up hens from their cages. One of them saw a box labelled “trash”. I was inside. I could barely move, I was so sick, so spent from that awful life in a cage. The farmer said I was going to be thrown away, that I’ll be dead soon. But the kind people took me away from there. A vet took care of me, gave me medicine and helped me walk again. Now I’m in my new home with my friend Xena. I can spread my wings, dustbathe, feel the sun on my wings, lay my eggs in peace. I’m in a place where I’m not seen as a machine, a way to make a profit, but an individual. I’m someone.
