trends we all are tired of

2

here’s my whole opinion on the jackson situation:

Do I think he’s wrong for wearing the dreads? No. I’m not mad at him personally but I am tired of idols thinking my culture is a fashion trend. When black people wear weave, get braids or dreads, people see us as ghetto. They think our cultural styles make us look uncivilized or dirty. We get bullied and made fun of. When we wear them it’s not a trend at all. Suddenly other races have adapted these same hairstyles like cornrows and dreads into their own little fashion world and suddenly it’s super cool and trendy?? That shit pisses us the fuck off. We have started so many fashion/beauty trends and lose credit to it because it took a white or non black person to make it actually trendy and cool. That’s where a lot of this anger from black fans are coming from and I can understand them. Don’t invalidate the feelings of black fans who respectfully have the rights to be angry !!! ESPECIALLY if you aren’t black !!

But for me, as long as the person wearing said style has respect for black culture and is educated on our culture I’m cool with them wearing our traditional hairstyles. Y'all are quick to jump on non Asians for wearing an Asian cultures clothing,etc, well this is the same situation. Kpop and khh takes so much from our culture. from the clothing to the style of music itself. But y'all ain’t know that because again, we don’t get credit for shit that we start. (And if you want examples of what kpop/khh takes from black culture ill be glad to whip out facts and receipts.)

I don’t see Jackson’s braids as cultural appropriation because he isn’t mocking my culture or being disrespectful. He’s not wearing my culture as some costume. But I am bothered by his response to angered fans. instead of trying to understand the anger he dismissed it as hate and that’s not okay. Black fans deserve a sincere apology.

I could be wrong but I don’t think Jackson could have rejected the styling. Most of the times they have to listen to the higher ups without refusal. So if you really wanna go yell and curse at somebody, do it to Pepsi and whoever decided to style Jackson. That’s just my opinion on this whole thing

*UPDATE: jackson said he CHOSE the hair style because he loves the culture… yet he’s still disregarding the feelings of black fans and calling it a misunderstanding. still no apology
I need to tell you...

…that we were amazing today. No kidding, you are the best, people. We were trending with #WhatsGoingOnNetflix in the top-30 worldwide (I’ve seen we were close to top-20). 

In some countries like Brazil and Italy and Spain and Canada, it went to top-10. (Italy, I love you more and more. I’m going to Naples next week and I was afraid of going to the new country, but now? You are the best.) 

People who take part in Appreciation Days are our heroes. They bring gifs and screenshots and it’s really easier to post tweet by tweet when you see Wolfgang’s smirk or Sun’s fist.

It has been six days since the news, and we are still trending. This is Daniela-level of coolness :)

I know that we all are tired and upset and losing hope. Maybe some shit is going on in your life, or maybe you have important exams, or you just don’t want to keep thinking about sad and, let’s be honest, somewhat scary things like Sense8 canceling. 

But this is not the end. 

We still don’t have any proper explanation about the canceling. I won’t believe that this is over until someone from the cast says full-scale long good buy. And they are not saying it yet. There were some posts on the different social networks that can be very, very slight hints that there is still some possibilities. It’s thin, but it exists. Also, some newspapers all over the world noticed us and making noise. They are on our side. Also, all of the sudden Netflix started advertising on Youtube. Well, probably they had read some of our letters… Or just got some brains from somewhere.

Anyway. If there is any possibility for the renewal we will make it real. Together.

Keep calling. Writing. Refilling request forms on netflix site. Asking friends to watch Sense8. Signing the petition (you all know where it is). 

And we will need you tomorrow. On twitter. At 12PM ET.

Stay tuned. We are not over. Not even close.

Please re-blog and help us spread the word. It’s time to show love and support for Bughead and the amazing actors, Cole and Lili. I’m tired of reading certain hostile bullies constantly attacking them and the writers. Instead of tweeting support for their own pairing, they invade our Bughead tags on twitter and tumblr…and insult people on all the Bughead related posts. 

So let’s show lots and lots of LOVE. I would really dislike to see bullies get their way through hate and anger. Showing support is better in the long run for us. 

So next Thursday, during the first LIVE airing of the NEW episode, we will tweet “Believe in Bughead” phrase…and let’s hope it trends. I’ve listed different timezones for fans living in different states in the US. Of course, I don’t really know the timezones for all the other countries involved. We would LOVE to get help from as many countries as we can for our trend. So if you know the time it airs in your country, please write it in the comment section for others to see. Or make a different postcard. 

I want Bughead to stay a couple in season 2. And I would hope the writers would rather listen to a supportive fanbase than people who call Bughead “lice” and tag actors and writers with constant hate. 

Please re-blog and RT on twitter too. Also, if you know how to make fan art, please do create your own postcards to promote.

Thanks so much. (I didn’t tag it in the Riverdale tag because I don’t want bullies to invade my post.) Just used Bughead and Sprousehart/Lilicole tags to keep it friendly and nice for the fans.

Being friends with benefits with Min Yoongi can be complicated (at best) by itself. But when you accidentally tell your family (and his boss) that the two of you are dating, things get messy. It only complicates things more when you blackmail Yoongi into pretending to date you, and neither of you can quite keep your feelings separate, no matter how much you try.

Angst, fluff, slight smut at times.

Yoongi x Reader

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13


“Oh my god, it’s you two!”

Yoongi flinched. It was bad enough trying to make small talk with everyone at the table without some random person from a different table tapping him on the shoulder and talking to him too.

“What two?” He asked. He was fairly sure he had never seen the person before, but they looked far too happy to see him to be a stranger.

“You two!” The man said, and the women he was sitting with squealed.

“Don’t tell me you don’t know?” She gushed.

“Do I want to?” Yoongi couldn’t help it, he just wanted the day to be over—not because he wanted to get you alone, or because he wanted to get to know you better (he couldn’t get to know you in front of people who thought he already knew you so well) that would be ridiculous. He was just tired.

“Yoongi, who’re your friends?” Taehyung asked, drawing the rest of the table’s attention.

“Oh, we don’t know each other.” The man said quickly, and Yoongi glanced over at you. You looked just as confused as he felt, which was no help at all.

“We saw them on youtube.” The women said happily.

“You saw who?” You said, eyes wide.

“What kind of video?” Jungkook asked suspiciously.

“I’ll show you!” The women dug her phone out of her purse, pulling up something on it before passing it over to Yoongi. “It’s trending.”

There on the screen, you and Yoongi sat at the baby grand piano playing “Heart and Soul.” Both of you were laughing, nudging each other when one made a mistake. What caught Yoongi’s attention though was the way you looked at him in the glances you sent his way. He had seen them earlier, of course, but thought they were his imagination. There was a sparkle in your eyes, and something so genuine in your smile. The worst part was how he looked back at you.

The two of you looked like the perfect couple—happy, loving, and comfortable with each other. The comments were full of people saying that they wanted a relationship like that, and asking “when are they going to get married?”

Yoongi wanted to leave. He wanted to stand up and walk out of the restaurant, his job be damned. He could catch a cab back to the airport and never see you again, delete your contact from his phone and erase you from his mind.

Reasons To Join Team M!Robin

The Mage Gauntlet is approaching and I wanted to do my part spreading the Robin propaganda, so here goes!

  • First Character
    • A lot of people’s first game was Awakening (me included), therefore Robin was many people’s first character, a character that we could personalize to boot, so let’s go join his team, eh? 
  • Smash Fan
    • Do you like to play Smash? Then Robin’s the mage for you. Bonus points if Robin was your Smash main.
  • F!Robin Isn’t In This Gauntlet, So Make Do With This One
    • Disappointed that you can’t root for F!Robin? Then why not root for this Robin instead!
  • He’s Always There For You
    • Robin isn’t just available as a 4* and/or a 5*, he’s available as a 3* as well! You get to see his cool summoning video a lot! That, and even if you’re tired of seeing him, he’s at least Bonfire fodder so it’s not a total loss.
  • Triangle Adept Hero
    • Robin can take most reds to the face and colorless units can’t even touch him. Robin is one of the best units to benefit from Triangle Adept because it gives him advantage over two colors. He may not be a nuke, but he’s a pretty solid choice for your team.
  • Shipping Lord
    • Robin’s your best wingman. Who cares if you’re fighting a war? He’ll hook up anyone that can support.
  • Best Waifu
    • Don’t be fooled by the waifu status of mages like Tharja, Robin’s the real waifu and let me tell you why. In Awakening, Robin is literally best waifu. Got a character you want to S-Support? Waifu Robin. Want to make a certain child character OP? Waifu Robin. Want to make Morgan OP? Waifu Robin. Want that sweet ass custom hair color on a certain child character? Waifu Robin. Meanwhile in Heroes, if you want a mage with some bulk, then Robin’s the waifu for you. Tired of Takumis ruining your day? Robin’s the waifu for you. And yes, male mages can be waifus too.
      • Joking aside, Robin actually has a chance to be the first male character that beats the trend of female Gauntlet winners. Even if you don’t care much for the whole waifu thing, I ask that you help a male character win the gauntlet for once.
  • What Time Is It?
    • I implore you to join Team Robin. After all, we’re stronger together because our bonds give us strength. We have to show them how it’s done, that it’s the wrong move to even think of going up against Robin because he’ll find a way to secure that checkmate. Robin is here to even the odds, so it’s time my friends… Time to tip the scales!
Mistakes

He became Abusive
To her heart
But still a drug
For a her soul
Blaming herself
For the Departure
All his Mistakes
Went untold
Asking how
Could he Leave
With All the time
Invested
Tears in her eyes
Now Knowing Her
Feelings we no
Longer Respected
Tired of commitment
He grew numb
To her Emotions
Trying to pour
Out her soul
To remind him
Of all her
Devotion
Forgiving him of wrongs
Making excuses
To her friend
Neglecting her efforts
To safe her relationship
Became a familiar trend
Feeling like he
Was missing something
He craved the
Single life
Selfishly wasting
The time of a woman
Ready to be
His wife

Kylie Jenner told Marie Clare magazine that she started the wig trend
“I started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs. Kim [Kardashian] just used my wig guy last night…I just do whatever I want to do, and people will follow.”
I’m honestly so tired of this little bitch. Black women literally get shitted on for wearing weaves/wigs that we’ve been wearing since forever, but this little heffa thinks she started some new shit. EVERYONE has worn wigs before this little girl lol but Kylie Jenner’s the reason we all wear wigs y'all! I’m so. Fucking. Tired.

Watching Stargate for the first time!

I’m going to watch the Stargate TV shows for the first time and post my reactions here!  I’ve seen the movie 163038403 times and a few episodes here and there over the years, so I know the overall premise of the universe.

Before I start, here’s everything I know or think I know pre-watch:

  • Samantha Carter saves everyone all the time and is tired of everyone’s shit

  • MacGyver got a haircut and an actual job

  • CANADIANS!! As a Canadian, this makes me happy because we rarely ever get canon Canadians on US shows

  • Dude from Game of Thrones will fuck up your shit, and he’ll probably enjoy it

  • Circle head guy will also fuck you up, but he’ll be grumpy about it

  • Rodney McKay and John Sheppard love each other. I ship it.

  • First rule is that nobody talks about Stargate Universe

  • Q from Star Trek goes to the Stargate world and continues his trend of annoying bald men in charge

There are many things we could talk about when we wonder where Arrow went wrong. Most people might say it started with the beginning of season 3 (which was definitely a garbage start to a garbage season) but I’d argue that it started midway through the second season.

That was when I fell in love with Arrow, actually, when the show was at its peak IMO. I watched the entire first season in less than 24 hours, and while I would never hold Arrow season 1 up as a beacon of diverse racial or queer representation, the ladies in it were amazing. We had Moira Queen, who was the sort of complex, morally questionable middle-aged woman character I don’t know that I’d ever seen before. And Thea was fierce and such a teenager–she whined, she argued, she rebelled, but she had such a good heart. Laurel was such a staunch protector of justice and I loved watching her in the courtroom. I loved seeing such a badass female lawyer on the screen (this was, of course, before Viola Davis graced us with her own astonishing performance as a badass female lawyer).

And there was Felicity, too, who got to be the tech genius, and she was awkward and funny and adorable. And we were introduced to McKenna Hall (awesome detective) and Joanna de la Vega (another lawyer) and Helena Bertinelli (vigilante/vindictive widow/daughter of a mob boss). In the flashbacks, we got Shado, who was a martial artist and archer, one of Oliver Queen’s mentors, and someone who was shown to care deeply for her family and friends and was such a fascinating character. There were a few more even that I can’t remember exactly right now. There was such a wide range of female characters and shortly after season 2 began, we were gifted with Sara Lance, a bisexual martial artist and precious cupcake, and Nyssa al Ghul, a lesbian assassin made of fire and steel.

Now, McKenna, Joanna, Shado, Nyssa, and Helena were all relatively minor characters from the start, but it doesn’t change the fact that of all the characters I just mentioned, in the seasons following, only two have never been bussed off the show or brutally murdered for the sake of manpain. And then again, of those two, one of them was *almost* killed for the sake of manpain.

It was like, after they killed Shado in 2x09, they thought “wow!!!! murdering women is a great plot point let’s continue it!!!”

So my point here is: Arrow made some <i>amazing</i> female characters, but later it was as though they were like:

“shit we have too many women what do we do i dunno i guess it’s M U R D E R T I M E”

And I see that trend in a lot of CW shows? Like the 100 had a lot of women and POC and queer folk in positions of power like I’d never seen before but then they started to fuck it all up :/

Anyway, I’m tired of my ladies being hurt.

I might be overanalyzing but...

Honestly, I don’t think the boys actually were looking to belong because they had each other. He knew they were on the outside of society but he didn’t know what it was like on the other side. The boys didn’t want to be stuck up Socs even if it meant a huge difference in money and the quality of their lives. And hey, maybe not all the Socs were jerks but from Pony’s point of view it doesn’t seem like he was willing to change his opinion until he talked to Cherry.

Think about it… if Dally never hit on Cherry and Marcia, Pony and Johnny never would’ve sat and talked to the girls. What if it was any other day and the guys decided to go for ice cream instead of to see a movie like they normally do. What if Bob and Randy hadn’t gotten drunk or Two-Bit did end up getting crazy drunk and never showed up? Cherry might not have asked Ponyboy to get the Cokes and popcorn where she introduced him to the idea that greasers and Socs aren’t so different. Even farther back, what if Sodapop and Steve weren’t going to take Evie and Sandy out that night? That talk would’ve never happened.

I know a lot of people ask what ifs for how certain events would change the ending but what about how Pony’s perspective changes throughout the novel?

Yes, Dally most likely would still have hit on Cherry regardless of Pony being there or not but Pony would’ve never had that same conversation with Cherry because remember, she barely mustered a hello at school. Exchanges would never be more than Pony admiring from afar. Two-bit’s appearance got them on the right topic.

It all started the minute Soda told Pony he couldn’t tag along. Through everything that happens in the book Pony still would’ve been confused or perhaps even more pissed off about the social statuses and their relevance if the Socs got away with the attack on him and Johnny. It would’ve only deepened his frustration. We all see the same sky but Pony wouldn’t have know about how others interpret sunsets. How he might not be the only one hating his current living situation.

So no, I don’t think the novel is about wanting to fit in, at least not for the greasers, because one you’re a grease you’re in for life. Tim still visited Dally in the hospital after he slashed his tires at the drive in. For the Socs it’s all about keeping up with everyone else and following the trends. Pony isn’t interested in beer blasts and the other stuff Socs like to do. He likes to read and watch movies and that makes him different from the guys like Cherry is different from her friends but the difference is SHE hides how she really feels and follows the crowd while Pony finds ways to continue doing what he loves.

Just because the greasers are on the outside of society doesn’t mean they want to fit in. It might not be that way by choice but if they really wanted to belong with the Socs they’d find ways and work harder to get there. Sure Darry could’ve been a Soc but his brothers and the gang “held him back” according to Two but he had a reason to stay he wouldn’t leave them behind for anything. Greasers like wearing leather jackets and smoking and being part of a gang because yeah there might not be endless piles of money in the bank waiting to be spent but you can’t buy the type of bond you get from being in your gang and giving that up would be absurd, pretty much unthinkable.

And not everyone can be a Soc, everything would be off balance now, wouldn’t it? Greasers simply took on the responsibility of keeping things in order. I don’t see the Socs eating chocolate cake and beer for breakfast or fixing up their buddy’s car or working hard to provide for their kid brothers. It’s more appealing to be a greaser because even with Everest sized track records and a generally bad rep, all the money in the world can’t make up for how relatable and welcoming the life of a greaser is to those of us who only catch the bad breaks.

Sorry this post is so long I just had so much to say.

(Some IG favorites until our Internet gets turned on later this week.)

I can’t believe we’re actually here. It was such a quick move, so much happened in such an incredibly short time and absolutely nothing went the way I’d planned, or hoped in some cases.

I didn’t get to say goodbye to the house, or say a proper thank you to Severus’ teacher. Thankfully, she gave me her contact information and as soon as we settle a little, I’ll send her an email.

We left early, but had no time to do much before boarding started, which was disappointing. The flight was the easy part, unexpected in my opinion. I had one good freak out trying to install the car seats while Antonio chatted with a flight attendant and I had to ask them to please just quiet down before my brain fell apart. But it went quickly, and with very few frustrations. We had much less assistance with our load of stuff in New York, because of course, it’s New York. But when we got to Seattle, everyone offered to carry or pull something, which made getting to our rental minivan just that much easier. I was so grateful to each of those people, we thought there would be a cart or something at least that we could have loaded everything onto, but there wasn’t, so we had to drag two huge car seats, a carry on luggage, two kid backpacks, my diaper bag, the four children (I wore the babies and my shoulders are still killing me, so I must have done something wrong) and the cat through security and beyond.

Once we caught up with our checked gear though, it got really hairy. We had to ensure we had enough stuff for the supposed two week wait for the movers and Sev’s and Thad’s car seats, we didn’t want to get here with nothing and have to buy everything only to have it in duplicate when the movers arrived, so we brought as many essentials as we could shove into the luggage. The kids were exhausted, bodies feeling like it was closer to 1am than almost 10pm by the time we made it to the hotel, and I was sure we’d sleep in, but alas internal clocks woke us up within minutes of one another between 5 and 5:10am. This trend has continued since, I’ll be glad when we’ve conquered the jet lag and the grumbles that come with it. Even Severus, who was fascinated by the concept, is done feeling like the day is over while the sun is still high in the sky. We are all pretty damn tired.

We were supposed to sign our lease on Saturday, but we swapped apartments. We found one we really liked, but on a whim decided to see a few other available units when we went to sign and changed our minds. Because of that it took an extra day to get into it, so Antonio surprised us by booking a hotel in Seattle for the night.

We all ate a late lunch/dinner together, and then Severus and I broke out in search of cotton candy, which we actually made it to before it closed for the night. We spent the entire walk back to the hotel eating our fluffy deliciousness and gloating to one another.

“Who booked it across the country AND made it to cotton candy in time?! WE DID THAT!” it was the best. Now Severus randomly goes “Mama. Who did that?” and I say “We!” it’s like our own little team cheer. 😂

Thaddeus had a rough time understanding that the hotel was not home, but only a very temporary headquarters. He wanted to stay in each one we visited, and got very upset when we told him we weren’t staying there any longer. Now that we’re in *our* apartment, he has chilled out and is content, though he admits he’d rather be exploring a hotel.

The babies have had a lot of fuss. There was so little for them to do and explore, but even that seems to be getting better - though I had to soothe Santino to sleep by rocking him earlier, which is usually not his thing.

Sev is doing great, just easily excited and distracted and I am SO glad we’re away from television with cable because he asked for everything that came on the screen, including a neck basket - which is some fake invention. I plan on registering him for school this week, and having him start next week, so he has had time to get over the jet lag and get used to his home surroundings - he has already made friends with some of the kids at the playground here, this is a super family friendly spot.

The one having the hardest time is Tiberius. Who is not used to being inside for longer than a few hours, and certainly not used to traveling in a bag. We’re keeping an eye on him, making sure he’s eating and drinking, and getting comfortable now. Which he seems to be doing. Unexpectedly, he has seemed to grow closer to me - when I moved in he’d just gotten a taste of being an outdoor cat, so we didn’t really have much to do with one another. The last few days, as soon as we got into a room, we’d let him out and he would come to me and rub his head on me, sit with me for a little bit before finding a corner or trying to hide under a bed. So that’s an interesting development.

Antonio and I are excellent. Focusing on getting everyone acclimated, and taking care of any needs. We’re enjoying our last bits of undivided time with each other and reveling in some significant firsts. This is *our* first place together, one we both had equal say in choosing and both bear legal responsibility for. We’re exploring familiar spaces with little ones that hadn’t been born when he and I first dated. Everything is magnificent, the only thing I could ever ask for is just to have all of the kids together, which I’ll forever ask, but otherwise, and despite all the wibbliness, it’s like a dream that I can’t believe is our real life.

Why I don’t like Ota/yuri

See my issue with Ota/yuri isn’t that it’s a ‘pedophilic’ ship with a strange power imbalance, apparently. Frankly I’m more annoyed at the fact that people call a 15 year old and an 18 year old possibly dating pedophilic, thereby devaluing the word. Pedophilia is by definition someone of 18+ years attracted to people that are prepubescent aka I’d say 0-13 tops. Therefor the relationship, however uncomfortable you might find the age difference, is not pedophilic. Stop using that argument, please.

Frankly I’m also the kind of person that is all for ship and let ship. I believe that fiction is supposed to be your gateway to explore certain things in a safe manner, sometimes things you don’t even desire in real life, but find interesting enough to write about. If every author actually stood behind the things they wrote, well I’d steer clear of Stephen King and R.R Martin, just to name a few. So really my issue with this ship isn’t about fiction vs. reality or how 'problematic’ such thing would be in the real world.

What really annoys me about Ota/yuri is the fact that we have a canon, healthy gay relationship within that anime! Like I’ve never seen such a well developed, realistic, not rushed and happy gay relationship on TV, let alone in anime and manga culture. But instead of being happy about that, focusing on that little flicker or positive representation, the fandom latches on to a fifteen year old that had to understand what Agape even means! And then connected it to his grandfather! 

Yuri never considered love an option. He’s the same fifteen year old who was too focused on providing for his family, who is so driven by his passion for skating he never looks left and right. He didn’t care for friends or other connections, only to reach his goal of winning and he freaking succeeded by working hard and having rock solid focus. I love that about Yuri. I love that he’s mature for his age on one hand, but also very childish on the other. He’s a realistic representation of a 15 year old.

That’s when Otabek comes in and shit goes down the drain. Listen, when I was 15 all my friends were 18+. I remember acting extra dumb around them, because I felt I had to prove myself. So that whole scene with the club and shit? I can relate, but not in a romantic sense! I’m so tired that every platonic relationship these days has to be turned into a romantic one, especially when people have to reach for it. Otabek and Yuri literally had less than five minutes of screen time. Why Ota/yuri? Where? 

Frankly I also think that Yuri would benefit from a friend more than he would from a boyfriend. Especially someone older, more mature and mellow like Otabek. I’d love the idea of them as friends much more, had the fandom not completely fetishized their relationship by now, effectively ruining it for non-shippers. It’s like Johnlock all over again. People complain about tiring romantic side plots and how we have to little platonic loves but then pull an Ota/yuri. Like?

I’d also like to mention here that I am tired of the trend that if one couple is gay, all the couples have to be gay. Heterosexuals? Never heard of those. It’s something that has also annoyed me in every yaoi or other fanfiction. Like sure, the main couple has to be gay, but why is everyone around them coincidentally as well? I am all for good representation, but please stay in the realm of the realistic, otherwise it loses its value entirely. I’m just so tired of these fanservice dilemmas and I fear Ota/yuri will become a prime example…

summary: y/n gets lost in a big city and after a long while she finally finds her boyfriend

Originally posted by popecalum

Waking up this morning it seemed like a good idea exploring the country you were currently in while Calum did band stuff.

Now as you were sat on a bench in the middle of Italy you were feeling anxious and scared. Your phone was dead and you had no way of contacting Calum as you had stupidly spent the money you had on coffee.

Getting up from the seat you felt tears prick at your eyes and you weren’t sure what to do.

You had always had a problem of beginning anxious at even the thought of being lost, so being in a country that you barely knew anything about scared you.

“y/n!?!” You heard a voice asked with slight nervousness. Turning to the sound you were faced with someone you had never met before.

“Um hello?” You asked a little confused.

“Hi I’m a huge fan of 5sos, are you okay? I saw you before and you seem a little nervous” She asked with such worry in her voice, it was too cute.

“I’m not really sure what to do, I’m lost and have no way to call Cal,” You said as you began feeling nervous again, not even knowing what the times is.

“omg what, how long have you been lost for,” She asked as she looked at her watch for the time.

“I have no clue what the time is” I said and she quickly replied saying it was 4:00pm.

“4 oh no the concert will start soon and Cal won’t be able to pick me up and I’ll be lost forever” I cried out as I began worrying.

“Ok here’s what we’ll do, we’ll try and get a hashtag trending and maybe you can come with me to the concert and then after that you can try to find him?” She asked as she randomly said a plan.

“Sure let’s do that,” I said trusting the girl who I had only just met.

As we found once again another bench she logged onto her twitter and took a selfie of us with the hashtag #Calwefoundy/n and tried to tag as many updates account as she could.

“Would he be looking for you right now?” She asked.

“No, because he probably thinks I’m back at the hotel and I generally don’t see him until before or after the concert,” I said making my nerves worse again.


two hours later and we were walking to the arena as we knew that none of the security would believe I’m Calum’s girlfriend.

“OMG IT"S Y/F/N AHHHHH” You heard screams of fans as they all came running up to you with cameras. Making sure you didn’t loose the girl’s hand who was helping you, you both linked arms as you took selfies with the girls.

“Y/n why is there a hashtag trending of cal we found y/n,” A girl asked.

“Long story, got lost and my phone died and just if it wasn’t for this life saver I’d probably still be out in the middle of Italy having no clue what to do,” You said as all the girls gushed to the other girl.

As the security at the front began letting girls in you were just in general tired and just wanted to hug Cal and wish him a good show.

Once you arrived at the ticket booth you seemed to forget that you didn’t have a ticket and you weren’t allowing any of the fans who offered theirs to give them away. “Don’t worry I’ll just chill out here for the next couple hours” You laughed away the sadness feeling bad for missing Calum’s show.

For what felt like forever you picked at your nails and hummed at the faint sound you could hear from the concert as you sat alone in the cold air. To make matters worst you didn’t even have a jumper to keep you warm from cold.

As you felt the rain start to pour you tried to find a little shelter but were now shivering cold and really wanted to see Calum.

The next few minutes you heard no sound before girls became running out the doors gushing to each other about how hot the boys were in person and how wonderful they sounded.

“Y/n you’re soaking” You heard a girl say as you looked and saw the girl from earlier, that you had found out her name was Bianca.

“What do we do now?” You asked as you looked at the building Calum was in right now probably really confused with your absence, especially since you had been gone since 10 this morning.

After 10 minutes of walking around the arena, Bianca had to leave but you wrote her twitter name on your hand so you could get the boys to follow her as a thank you.

At this point, you were beginning to worry as you guessed it was probably around 11 o'clock and you hadn’t eaten since around 1:00 and it was safe to say you were starving and tired and just in pain from all this walking.

“Y/n!” You heard a man shout your name as you looked up and saw Dave running up to you. “Why aren’t you with the boys, their worried sick,” He says as you both began walking to where you could finally see Calum.

“I got lost and my phone died and I..I..I” you stuttered as the pain of today finally caught up with you and you couldn’t help crying your eyes out.

“Don’t worry, now we’ve found you and you don’t have to worry” He said as you finally saw the doors that would lead you to Calum.

“He’s in the dressing room,” Dave said as he left and you walked the few steps to the dressing room and took a few breaths before opening the door.

“Y/N where were you!?” He asked as he saw you entered the room but didn’t rush to hug you like you previously hoped he would.

“I got l-lost and my phone died and I-I-I was just lost and didn’t know what to do” As you cried and he ran up to you, knowing at this moment all you needed was a hug and some kisses.

“baby, I’m not mad I was just worried, you’re okay now and nothing happened,” He said as he hugged you again and kissed your forehead.

“Cal can we have something to eat, I haven’t eaten since 1,” You said as you looked at him.

“Babe you haven’t eaten in so long,” He said as he put way too much on a plate, but you couldn’t care as you had your boyfriend back and that was all you needed right now.


DONT FORGET TO REQUEST FOR 25 DAYS OF 5SOS AND IN GENERAL I LOVE WRITING THINGS PEOPLE ACTUALLY WANT AND LEAVE FEEDBACK

I Hate this cool tumblr trend ™ of taking any post that is remotely pro recovery or improving ur mental health or trying to manage your life and shitting on it, saying “WE CAN’T ALL BE NEUROTYPICAL KAREN” or whatever bullshit.
it is so unhealthy and can ruin people or stop them trying to recover from their mental illnesses (speaking from personal experience)

and like I’m not trying to blame people with executive dysfunction or such (lord knows I’m terrible at looking after myself) , but seeing every positive or helpful post being shit on is so tiring. can we please stop.

At folks who are putting together images of avocado toast and fidget spinners to mock supposed baby boomers who are calling those millennial things: you are not helping. You are absolutely not helping the neurodiverse and disabled folks who need to stim and are dealing with the benefits, difficulties and challenges of a world where spinners have become a trend. (Something we’re still discussing, as a community.) These things do not go together, and I’m tired of seeing NT and ND folks who don’t stim (it galls me most from that second category, in fact) lumping them together to make a funny meme.

Yes, an awful lot of conversations from NTs of all ages are epically missing the point, including baby boomers, but so are you.

I’ll also point out that ND and disabled stimmers who are not millennials are just now discovering stimming/fidgeting through easy access to a toy that suits their needs. You know, because ableist assumptions of neurodiversity result in a lot of people not being diagnosed earlier. Because our elders are living with the fallout of that, especially elders who aren’t white cishet men.

The reaction to spinners (not understanding them) has far less to do with a generational gap and far more to do with ableism, including the fact that stimming as a set of behaviours has been long and violently repressed and trained out of us. So much so, and for so long, that a great many people who aren’t exposed to ND culture (regardless of age) have no idea what it looks like or why it matters.

Don’t. Don’t do this. It’s not cute or funny. It’s not challenging the problem of spinners being dismissed as a fad by those who don’t understand it; it’s just turning the problem into a different sort of meme by associating two things that have absolutely no relationship. It’s just erasing the ableism for a laugh.

One I don’t find funny, as a millennial autistic who stims, who is rediscovering stimming after having it abused out of me, who is now seeing my undiagnosed autistic parent find stimming via spinners and connecting with it.

Stop it.

ok u know what trend i’m real tired of?? showing off how Cool and Suave your main male character is by having him usher some girl out of his apartment and forget her name in the process. we all know you’re going to play the “call me?” “sure, name” “it’s NAME” game, and we all know this chick is just there to be hot and is never going to appear again. hoo boy we get it, he’s a Straight Man who Loves the Ladies. let’s just cancel it entirely

i’m SICK and TIRED of hearing all these people talk about what’s the deal with this pop life and when’s it gonna fade out. the thing you gotta realize what we doing is not a trend we got the gift of melody we gonna bring it till the end, come on now

it doesn’t matter bout the car i drive or what i wear around my neck. all that matter is that YOU recognize that it’s just about respect

it doesn’t matter about the clothes i wear and where i go and why. all that matter is that you get hyped and we’ll do it to you every time, come on now 

do you ever wonder why this music gets you high? it takes you on a ride. feel it when your body starts to rock, baby you can’t stop and the music’s all you got come on now this must be pop

dirty pop

You said, “I know all kinds of candies and all kinds of chocolates are sweet. But nothing taste sweeter than your lips”.

You said, “I know you like rain and you like how it falls to your naked face. But nothing feels better than your skin brushed to me”.

You said, “I know how you love songs and how it soothes to your pale emotion. But nothing excites me more than you whispering behind”.

You said, “I know fashion change, trends change and all my stuffs wear and tear. But never I will trade my heart for something temporary, I swear none of these will change”.

You said, “I know I’m boring, bipolar and crazy. But I know your the only limitation beyond my boundaries”.

You said, “I know forever does not exist. But it’s all about how much we spent before everything’s gone, how much we chase our time holding hands”.

I said, “I never like you, I needed you. I never love you, I live for you. My heart aches when you cry. And it would be madness if ever I get tired of hearing these from you”.

Look, I love all the hand-flapping/physical stimming videos and GIFs being posted at the moment. I’ve gotten tired of this “stim as aesthetic” trend when for me stimming isn’t paint-mixing videos and is having to answer questions asked by complete strangers as to why I’m playing with Play-Doh on the bus. It’s super important that we celebrate the forms of stimming that aren’t deemed pretty or socially acceptable. It’s super important that we teach ourselves to feel good about how we move.

Except for the fact that I hate all the hand-flapping videos and gifs posted at the moment because they are making Tumblr increasingly unsafe. They’re the reason I’ve had to throw my hands up in the air and install a plug-in that prevents all gifs from displaying, even though it’s only the super-fast moving ones that bother me and I actually do want to see the rest. I’ve gone from being cautious in who I follow (those who tag) and finding that good enough to protect me to realising that so many of the once-safe stim blogs are now no longer safe because of the (untagged) physical stimming GIFs that I can’t afford to risk seeing any GIFs full stop.

(By the way, I still haven’t found a plug-in that stops all videos from auto-starting - just some of them - so I’m still vulnerable to untagged videos. No, I don’t want to use Chrome. I already use Firefox for accessibility reasons and I’m not changing my browser.)

Please, TAG YOUR MOVING GIFS. Yes, I mean you. All of you. You are failing other autistic people when you don’t. You are making our spaces that little bit less safe for other autistics.

You know what’s more likely to be co-morbid in autism? Epilepsy and seizure disorders. You know what’s a common trigger for photosensitive seizures? Moving images.

(It’s even more galling when certain blogs tag for moving images because they’re aware they’re a problem but don’t tag the hand-flapping GIFs even though they’re a problem in the exact same way. Just because one is more important to promote doesn’t mean it isn’t potentially problematic.)

And even for those autistics who don’t have seizures? Well, we’re pretty renowned for our sensory processing differences, too, so I’d say there’s a pretty high risk of flapping hands or other fast, repetitive movements in a GIF triggering sensory overload in some of us. Why wouldn’t you tag for that?

Please, just tag. “Moving GIF” or “video” or “moving” is all that’s required. (I’ll figure out what your tagging system is, I promise.) Those who wish can blacklist those and go on our merry way; those who can celebrate our stims without difficulty can do so.

Don’t we have an obligation to make our community safe for all autistics to enjoy?
