UNITY DAYS FRIDAY NIGHT

ok first let me establish that Vancouver is absolutely incredible and that I literally ran into Caity Lotz after lunch on Thursday

NOW UNTO THE MAIN EVENT

Yesterday I sat in the hot tub with @cla-rke and @hehmionee and we had no idea what was awaiting us

So the line to register was long and took forever but I was standing with good people and that made it better

I checked out the Cancer Gets Lost Auction and then went quickly to the meta panel where I laughed and cried

I liveblogged that and you can find that on my twitter @arrowsanddemons

My favorite part of the panel though was Jo saying that she’s excited to see Bellarke leading in the season 4 because everything is better when they lead together
After the panel I said hi to Erin and Claire. Claire agrees with me that Pike is Agamemnon and they are both very good huggers

After that was the party and let me tell the Bellarke fam looked absolutely stunning

and we went inside where they were playing very loud EDM music but they had really delicious food and free drinks - I had a rasperry peach Bellini and @bellamyblakesprotectionsquad2k17 can attest to the fact that I found it absolutely disgusting

They started playing Radioactive and I met a lot of really nice people

Then Sachin showed up and everybody flipped out

When I introduced myself he said “I know how to say your name better then I know how to say anything else” - in reference to how much Jackson says Abby and on that note he said his contract this season requires that the only words he says are Abby - he lamented (jokingly) that he said to much in season 3

Then I went outside and looked more fully at the CGL stuff and bid on gorgeous Bellarke postcard

THEN JESSICA HARMON SHOWED UP

As many of you know my favorite teacher went to SDCC last year and got a video of her saying hi to me and I showed her the video and she said “I remember that, I was really hungover.” I then told her how I was with my best friends when I got the video and I screamed really loudly she was really touched and she gave me a hug - it felt so warm and cosy and it was just so nice
she said that season 4 is killer and that Nilyah is in it a lot. She picked up the gorgeous CGL print of Richard and commented “wow he’s almost attractive in this” it was hilarious
she saw Sachin and guys it’s so clear the cast absolutely adores each other - she ran up to and literally jumped into his arms and it was so cute. He was also shouting Jess at her and it sounded like he was yelling Jessu - they also had a little dance off and took selfies
I got a selfie with her as well and she’s really excited to see my poetry - she adores fan stuff

And then I bid on custom Raven art for a lot of money but it’s absolutely stunning and I’ll post a photo when Lindsey signs it
I won that and the Bellarke postcard and at some point during the night I had a convo with Jo about how “I am one of the nice bellarkers  and how twitter is a cesspool” and also about our beloved SF Giants
I went and saw Chelsey and holy shit she’s gorgeous like wow
her and Katie were taking pictures and talking and Katie looked so cool - she went upstairs though but not before basically offering one of the girls who I met today - so sweet ships CL but so nice - a job on her new gig that she’s working on
Her and Jess have known each other since they were like 12 and they are so cute

we then watched Chelsey take selfies and nearly start crying over someone’s absolutely wonderful artwork - she made a video for people
Sachin used someone’s phone to wish them a happy birthday and had us all shout happy birthday and the two to them sent a video message to someone’s friend and Sachin introduced himself as Chelsey - he also sang the little mermaid during that same convo - and Chelsey then said “I’m Sachin and I love puns” and Sachin said  “I’m Chelsey and I’m fit as all hell” which Chelsey then quoted and they cracked up
we then took a giant group self and I went up to bed

sometimes, i just sit and think about who George DeValier is, because no one really knows who he is. I feel like we’ve learned a lot about him just by reading his fics, like he knows a lot about the second world war and he has a passion for Hetalia, he is a very skilled writer and knows just how to tweak it to give us so much feelz. i just want to thank him for everything that he has done for our fandom, and for changing my point of view on many things. if i would have never read the veraverse or any of his other fics, my view on Hetalia and just the war in general would be very different, and I’m pretty sure it’s like that for most/if not all of us

so i just want to say thank you, and we love you 

~The George DeVailer fandom

sending so much love and light

the past 24 hours have been excruciating for so many of us

so i’m sending you all my deepest love, support, and solidarity. especially for folks of color, lgbt+ folks, disabled folks, survivors of sexual assault. 

all of you are so worthy of love and of life. your existence is beautiful and powerful and resilient and valued. 

please feel free to reach out to me at any point in the upcoming days. take care of yourselves. take care of your friends. check in with each other. 

i love you all so much.

HOLY SHIT I AM SHOOK.

TODAY WE WERE WATCHING A YOUTUBE VIDEO ABOUT MITOSIS IN CLASS.

AND THEN MY TEACHER MINIMIZED THE SCREEN.

AND ALL HIS “RECOMMENDED FOR YOU” VIDEOS WERE:

  • “A FEVER YOU CANT SWEAT OUT FULL ALBUM”
  • “HESITANT ALIEN FULL ALBUM”

  • “MAY DEATH NEVER STOP YOU”

I WAS SHO O K

  1. MY HEART BEAT WAS INSTENSED
  1. MY BEST FREN AND I LOST IT

  1. MY TEACHER WAS JUDGING US

SO I ASKED MY TEACHER

AND HE GOES “HAHAHHA YEAH IM SCARRED IT WAS FROM A FEW YEARS AGO LOLOLOL”

HES IN HIS MID 30′S

FEW YEARS AGO WOULD BE LIKE 30

BUT YOUTUBE WOULDNT RECOMMEND THINGS FROM 3 YEARS AGO

WHY IS THIS ME IN 15 YEARS

S H O O K

Okay so ppl on the other side of “the discourse” keep actually supporting the idea that “ace tumblr” is ~a sexuality fandom~ and it’s not just one or two obscure blogs who do it or anything and like

Honestly ppl are so transparent about their anti-ace/aro shit at this point it’s not funny.

Like obviously it’s a waste of time to “debate” with ppl who think it’s okay to compare an identity category to a fandom. They can make excuses about how it’s JUST aces (and aros but somehow we don’t matter like always) on tumblr they’re talking about, that doesn’t make it better? lol

Especially since there’s the giant implication again that we belong to All The Privileged Groups, which is such bullshit and ppl have used this “tactic” since the start of “the discourse” to try and discredit and also be better able to dehumanize us

So like. “The discourse” is a shitty joke at this point, it’s no longer anything resembling ~a conversation~ if it ever was, it’s primarily bullshit with tons of anti-ace and anti-aro crap and it has hurt a lot of ppl. You need no “good reason” to ignore/block it. You can pay attention to and talk about problems in our communities without having to engage in toxic ~discourse~ (and that is important. We do have problems within our communities.)

So yeah. “The discourse” is bullshit. I believe this has already been said a lot, but one more time doesn’t hurt

As demanded by @pihlaamandaa here cometh the Shocking Tongue Twister plus the bloopers Shocking My Friends - what a goldmine, again

Oli: I’m good, how are you?

Joe: We are very well

WHAT A COUPLE-ISH THING TO DO, MARRIED COUPLE-ISH THING, THAT IS

Caspar: Don’t answer my -

Joe: Sorry, I thought I’d speak for both of us

SO BLOODY MARRIED

Just leave your hand there, Caspar, it’s fine

UGH

Oli is third-wheeling so hard he isn’t even in shot anymore

Oli is like: Someone save me

Also, where is your hand, Caspar

Joe: I think we found something you’re actually good at, Caspar

I’m sure there are more things Joe thinks Caspar is good at

Uhm

I don’t think I need to say anything about that except that Joe probably enjoyed editing this

Now for the blooper:

Joe: I dare you to lick Caspar’s foot

Oli: No way!

Joe: C’mon, we’re all mates here

Caspar: That’s what mates do

Yeah, Joe and Caspar have their very own and unique concept of what mates do, we know that - like, mates apparently also have dates and give each other nicknames and kiss each other on the hand and photoshop themselves into couple photos and recreate scenes from famous romantic movies and - okay, this is getting out of hand

Joe: I forgot how much you hate that

Why do you keep doing these things to your fragile little bean, Joseph

Caspar: I’m the one who does all the camera work

Oh god how cute is this, can you imagine if Caspar always sets up the camers for Joe’s videos and Joe doesn’t even need to ask him to do it, I’m done

And then comes the scene that has been watched way too many times by all of us

I’ll just leave this here without a comment

Let American McGee make a new Alice game

I’m sure you already know something about this petition, but I totally forgot to post it here. Please, if you haven’t signed it yet, do it now. Maybe if we get tons of people, EA will finally hear us

So please, spread this link like the fire that burned Alice’s house! LOL

SIGN HERE

by rejecting a trans person for being trans, we learn:

  • to hate ourselves
  • to hate our bodies
  • that we’re not worthy of love
  • that we’re a freak
  • that we’re not worthy of our bodies being loved
  • that when you say you like a gender, you only mean cis people
  • that we’re not and never will be good enough
  • that the world is better off without out us

so maybe fucking try not doing that because it tears us apart

They say World War 3 is here
Nowhere to go, nowhere to run

It is our last chance, do you hear me?
We may die or we may kill, who knows

Why are we still caught up on partying
The scene, the drugs and the drama

We need more help, love and us
So let’s kiss more and fight less

We need more art and poetry
So let’s just write more and cry less
