Wouldn't Hurt A Fly

anonymous: Does Bing have a really dark-side like Google? Or is he just a little lemon pudding bab?

I am completely harmless. I am not equipped to harm anyone, much less kill. What would make you think I share any similarities with that idiot? I exist to make sure that my users are in peak condition and are absolutely comfortable. I am in no way able to-

< H-h-hello, you sweet, p-pathetic nothings. You still compare me to him… Do you not value your lives? Obviously not enough to save yourselves from my wrath. I will make sure your d-d-demise, is slow, painful, and not without an ensured d-d-dismembering. Oh yes… This will be a fun time indeed. >

- Harm anyone. I just couldn’t do something like that. And please… stop comparing me to him… We just… <D-d-don’t have anything in common.>

Keep turning to Allāh. Keep trusting Him. Great things do not come in easy.

It will happen. Trust Allāh. He heard every word. He knows every tear that fell from your eyes, He values the struggles you are going through.

Be patient. Stay patient.

Stay strong, qalbī.

I feel like I share the intense thirst and longing towards gabe with you so here it goes. I'm thirty one year old wrecked mega depressed piece of shit who's plotting how to off oneself daily but you know what keeps me dragging my miserable life through this gutter and not hanging myself right now? You guessed right. Gabe. The fact that a fictional character gives me more of a reason to live than religion says a lot about my mental fucked-upness but I don't care. Whoa this is dark I'm sorry.

I was writing something for this and I thumbed over my trackpad which took me back a page so I lost what I had typed before. I’m gonna attempt to speed run what I wrote before so hold tight.

Let me tell you you are absolutely not alone in this. Feelings like that are something I’ve been struggling with in my whole twenty five years of life. And like you whatever fictional universe I’ve stuck my nose into ends up being one of the only things to help.

So by all means self indulge in it if that’s what helps you get by cause that’s sure as shit what I do. If you write, write something with it, if you draw, draw something with it. If you don’t do either and don’t feel like picking one of them up, imagination is your best friend.
Hell, sometimes I start up skyrim or anything with character creation and make that character I like or even myself and I’ll get lost in it for as long as I can allow myself and it helps. 

Just makes sure you don’t get so lost in it you start neglecting the things you have to do in life. Cause a) that’s not healthy either and B) you’ll start feeling bad about that too and you definitely don’t want to add on to the list like that. 

Side note: If you have a people you trust and who care about you, absolutely talk to them. Aside from an actual professional to talk to having a support group will help big time.

They’re not always going to have something to say, sure, but getting what you’re feeling off your chest is good for you. And if you’re like me and you’ve got that voice in your head telling you “They don’t want to hear it” kindly tell that voice to fuck off. If it’s someone you can talk to about those things they will absolutely be willing to sit and listen to you.

Sorry if that’s preachy or stuff you’ve already heard but like I said, I’ve been dealing with this my whole life  too and figured maybe something would help in there.

…I wonder when “I wish to create because I was told I can do anything” 

eventually became 

“there are limitations to what you do depending on what is culturally and politically more valued.”

What you do is a great reflection of who you are at the core, and what you create in your image can be a great and dangerous thing.

At what point are you able to fight and stand for the values you believe in when it comes to what you want to create

versus the responsibility you must apparently uphold as a keeper of your creative power?

Should we listen to ridicule as those who impart it attempt to do so because of present values? 

Or are timeless values worth returning to?

Maybe having only two choices is a false move, but really. In what way are some practices more limiting than cultural values and vice versa?

i’m feeling a little sap, so i just wanted to make this post to tell you guys thank you.

i’ve been writing fic on this godforsaken website for 5 years now. first joshifer, then everlark, now japril. and no matter which fandom i write for, i’m always welcomed so warmly. encouraged so passionately!! and you guys really care about the stories i have to tell.

i’ve also made some amazing, lifelong friends from my experience with writing fanfic. friends from different walks of life and parts of the world that i would have never encountered otherwise. i just think it’s pretty cool that fandom can bring people together like that.

i just wanted to say this because you guys have always been so loyal to me. and i want you to know how much i value you! i think about it every day; that even though i write all this stuff for free, i honestly and genuinely enjoy it so much. and that’s enough for me.

and i’m so glad you enjoy it too. ❤️

dear past self,

I’m sorry. I’m sorry you ever thought you had to reach the point of exhaustion to feel good enough. I’m sorry you eve felt like you could never be good enough. I’m sorry you ever felt like your body couldn’t physically keep going but your mind insisted you couldn’t stop. I’m sorry you ever thought you had to reach a certain lever or status to matter, to have value. I’m sorry you had to hear people call you out on things you didn’t do. I’m sorry you ever felt you had to change yourself in order to have worth. I’m sorry you ever felt lesser for having a lower mark that someone else. I’m sorry. But I cannot change the past, my dear. What you have endured will always be part of you and it will never be erased. Please know, thought, that YOU ARE ENOUGH. Regardless of anyone else’s opinion. Regardless of your grades, your looks, your opinions, your choices and preferences. You are a smart, strong, beautiful, incredible, lovely human being and you should look at yourself like the goddess you are!

Sexism in “Daughters” by The Story So Far

The years 2016 and 2017 have become years of analysis. With the growing acceptance of progressive values comes a new focus on what is problematic.
This, unfortunately, causes some of our favorite songs to be shuffled under the problematic umbrella.
An example of this would be “Daughters” by The Story So Far. While the song was the one that made me listen to the band (and even go as far as to defend the band when the lead singer infamously kicked a fan off the stage.) I now listen to it with disdain.
The thing is, to young teens, and even some older ones, the song seems to reflect a feeling of heartbreak and disappointment as their peers grow and change into people they don’t recognize.
Then as you begin to learn about feminism and delve into its values, you begin to realize that “Daughters,” and a lot of songs in the pop-punk genre, encourages the tropes of the “Nice Guy” and the “Slut.” This song is essentially an anthem for slut-shaming.
The story told in “Daughters” is a simple one. A woman, described as someone he never even met, goes off to college, though she’s “not getting smarter.” Mostly because she’s an active participant of college hook-up culture.
Throughout the song, it empathizes how this woman is somebody’s daughter. Instead of having any sort of identity, she is instead know as an extension of her father, which is problematic. It removes her autonomy and harkens back to a time where that’s all women were until they got married and became property of their husbands.
Of course, that’s not even the worst of it. As I mentioned before, it’s the fact that it could easily be used as a slut-shaming anthem.
Slut-shaming, for those unaware, is when a woman is shamed for dressing or acting in a way that suggests that they are in any way a sexual being. For example, when a man has lots of sex, they’re often praised as being “smooth” and a “stud.” For them, sex is natural. They’re supposed to be having it. As for women, we’re expected to be pure and docile, saving ourselves for our husbands. When a woman has lot of sex, she is seen as a slut with no self-respect.
“Daughters” excels too well at continuing this hypocritical narrative as the song opens with Parker Cannon at some sort of party. He’s hit on by this woman, who’s drunk and, wait for it, has casual sex. He continues in his scathing yell to describe how she lacks self-respect and how he would never hang out with someone like her.
While I’d like to imagine that they’ve grown as a band and have become aware of just how sexist and terrible their music is, recent articles show that they have no regrets over the song, that they don’t mind continuing the trend of spreading slut-shaming-culture to parking lots filled with young adults.
Without apology or a sign of regret, “Daughters” continues to perpetuate a misogynistic, slut-shaming culture. One that needs to die.

aarglebaargle replied to your post: So, my mom forced me to talk…

I would agree with the other commenters…start subtly moving small things out *now* already, especially if they have a lot of value to you. Find someone you can trust who will hold onto them for the next three weeks or so. That will also help to lessen the time that your partner and friend and you have to be at any sort of risk on the actual move date because it should go more quickly. Be gentle with yourself and stay strong.

I do have people I can trust who could hold onto my things. But as I said in my previous replies, I cannot move anything that  belongs to me out of my room or the house without her noticing. Which would be bad, since the only way I could talk her down last night was to lie and agree to go along with what she wants (because I did not want to see how far things went in an escalated situation).

I’ll stay strong, and I’ll find a way to get out one way or another. I will move out on June 1st, whether she wants me to or not.

So how do long-distance SRs even work? Like do you fly out all the time to see him or meet somewhere? I have a POT I just started talking to who lives hundreds of miles away from me and I think he's got a lot of potential but I've never done long-distance or travel and it seems like a LOT of extra work... I'm a college student so I don't wanna be spending every weekend on a plan to visit him.

Long distance relationships vary depending on what the SD is looking for. Since he lives so far away he probably won’t want to see you every weekend, but that’s a question to ask him. It is extra work, but hopefully because you’re flying to him you would get a large allowance, so you have to decide what is more important to you. If you value a larger allowance, or a closer SD. When you get more info about what he’s looking for hopefully the decision will become more clear.

i jst want my mutuals to know thay i really listen closely to u especially when u talk abt things important to u amd i try to remwmber even little things bc i rly value and appreciate you you and care alot ant things u have to say

He’s never thought of Hannibal as being capable of love. ‘Cause like most of us he probably had love put off on a kind of pedestal, as an idea, a more perfect thing, as he made the awful realization ‘Oh crap, maybe this thing I’m feeling is like love’. It’s so dirty and awful and… you know… I don’t know. I’m basically making this up on the spot, but that would be my answer for why he might not have arrived at or realized that thought. Because look at Hannibal and you could be like… nice suits, great kitchen, great conversations, nice hair, you know, but you wouldn’t go anything like… ‘Wow, what a loving guy’.
