Ginger + Heat

Ginger was one of those people who was constantly cold. Despite having lived in Kentucky for years now, the moment summer begins waning and the crisp fall starts creeping into air, she needs every long-sleeve, sweater, jacket, coat, everything so she’s not shivering when heading over to Statesman HQ in the chilly mornings. Tequila liked to tease her whenever he’d see her in thick cardigans, saying it was still September, to which she’d reply that October was close enough.

When Kingsman came crashing into her life, she became jealous of the suits they were able to wear, mostly because it meant that no one would ever mock them for being clad in long sleeves and layers.

They were taking Harry through yet another test when she realized she forgot her coat. She wrapped her arms around herself, trying to keep in the warmth and stop herself from shivering, but it was no use. Suddenly, she felt something large (and warm, thank god) drape across her shoulders. She looked up to see Merlin wrapping his field jacket around her. He smiled lightly and said he thought she looked cold, and the heat that spread across her cheeks was also from the jacket, she swore.

description:  The Breakfast Club had struggling comedian Lil Duval on a couple of days after Janet Mock educated them on what it meant growing up as a trans woman. Duval is known to say ignorant things to keep his inexpressive career above water and it was so problematic & unbearable. I’ve never been so disappointed in my favorite person in the world Charlemagne for the letting the comments continue and laughing. We all have to do better.

       "Am I upsetting you, Syzoth?“

      The look he gives Reptile is one of contempt, both for the interruption and for his continued existence in general. The usage of the creature’s real name was more than purposeful, meant to dig under Reptile’s skin.

      "You speak so often of reviving your race, I simply thought I’d offer you my services.” Of course, when he said ‘reviving’ he meant turning them into undead servants and his mocking tone more than made it clear.

      He was more than capable of fully reviving someone, but to waste his powers on a dying out race of lizards? Laughable.

the thing about ancaps and libertarians in general is that they don’t take themselves seriously either. this leads to the internalization of memes that were meant to mock them like happy ancap emote, muh roads or “what if the child consents tho?”.

the ancap understands the radicality of his position and has long since stopped evangelizing or disproving the points expressed in such memes. ancaps may not be immune to meme warfare, but we’re getting there.

thoughts, @wageronliberty?

Trumphammer 2k: North America Pt. 1 (The Trumperium)

“THERE ARE ONLY TWO-COUNT ‘EM COCKS FOR BRAINS-TWO WAYS FOR GUARDSMEN LIKE YOURSELVES TO SERVE THE EMPEROR ‘ROUND THESE PARTS! YOU EITHER KILL THE ENEMY, OR YOU LET THEM KILL YOU SO THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH AMMO TO USE AGAINST YOUR BETTERS! NOW SHOW ME Y’ALL GOT A PAIR BETWEEN THE LOT OF YOU AND HELP ME STORM THIS FUCKING BUNKER!”
-Commissar Brett-Smythe, Battle of Toronto 2035

It is the current year of 2416, and our God Emperor has yet to return with the sage meme magician Harambe, and the rising rumors of what stirs beyond the Walls and in the colonies in the Solar System. To have a better understanding of the goings on, and to calm my nerves somewhat, I will compile this journal detailing the history and current events of nations in the world and beyond.

Naturally, I am compelled to begin my report on the political climate of the world with, dare I say, the political center of the known universe: The United States of the Trumperium. Due to the devastation of the Rockies and Eastern Seaboard caused by the utilization of memetic weaponry, the midwestern states were subject to a massive wave of war-weary migrants and development. Within five years of the Trumperium’s proclamation, New Washington (formerly Lincoln), Nebraska had become the largest city (controlled by the Trumperium of course). With the development of orbital habitats at the dawn of the twenty second century, most major industries moved to the orbital colonies, and a large number of citizens looking to find work and a new life. This allowed large swaths of urban sprawl to reclaimed to provide a more agrarian “feel” to the country.

Although the Northeast and the “Left Coast” were lost to the fanatics of the Shill and Bern, the acquisition of Canada’s Prairie provinces and the Yukon territory ore than made up for it. Almost everyday, swathes of land are granted to retiring members of the Trumperial Guard, as a reward for twenty years’ service (retirees can choose between land or stock from one of the orbital industries) from the Canadian Marches alone. Despite their Canadian heritage, most of the March locals were conservative, and welcoming of the arrival of the Trumperium during their invasion of Canada. Still some that reside here see themselves as more Canadian than American even after two hundred years of Trumperial rule. As the newest addition to the United States, Trumperial Guard units formed in the Marches do not have any historical or cultural “patriotic flair” to their uniforms, instead relying on surplus from the Kodiak and Frontier Segmentums.

Alongside the Canadian Marches, the United States is divided up into six other administrative divisions: Segmentums Dixie, Laurentia, Southwest, Teton, Kodiak, and the Imperial Demense.

Segmentum Dixie is the Old South come again, with Antebellum architecture dotting the landscape once again. Citizens of this Segmentum have decided to live up to the notion of “Southern Hospitality” with extreme prejudice. Every household that can, will have vat-bred house serfs toiling away in the kitchens to supply any guest with sweet tea and all other forms of southern comfort. As the heartland of the old American aristocracy, citizens of Segmentum Dixie see their home as the flower of chivalry and this affects the attitude of Dixie Trumperial Guard formations. Seeing themselves as knights of the south and Trumperium, the wide variety of uniforms reflecting the history and heritage of Segmentum are the most ornate and adorned in the entire Trumperium, with an attitude to boot. Luckily, such haughtiness is worn away after a tour of duty (or two) at one of the Walls.

Formerly the Rust Belt and industrial heartland of the United States, the people of what would become Segmentum Laurentia had to go through some culture shock during the transfer of industries to the burgeoning orbital habitats. Who was to lead the shift to a more rural Laurentia? Enter the Amish (and other Anabaptist groups), who had enclaves in the Midwest that became fueled with more of their number fleeing the war in the Eastern Seaboard. Over time, aspects of their culture and lifestyle resonated with the beleaguered locals, and soon Segmentum Laurentia became the breadbasket of the Trumperium ten times over. Due to the Amish influence on the region, Laurentians are considered the most humble of the Trumperium’s denizens, a source of much contention when Laurentian and Dixie (the least humble) Guardsmen are tasked with watching the Northeastern Wall.

Once meant to mock them, “Segmentum Cowboy” is now accepted as the unofficial name of Segmentum Southwest by its inhabitants. Ranching culture dominates this region, ensuring that almost every plate on the Earth has some part from some cow that resided in the Southwest. Although the Guardsmen raised in the defense of the Southwest’s Wall keep the border with Mexico heavily guarded, there has been nary a skirmish on that front since the 2100′s, and focus has shifted towards areas of the Wall bordering the Left Coast. If the Guardsmen from Segmentum Dixie view themselves as the “knights” of the Trumperium, then “cowboy” is once again an appropriate term to describe the ones from Segmentum Southwest, good at harassing opponents until heavier units move in for the kill.

Vigilance is the key phrase to describe life in the Segmentum Teton. They might be on the other side of the wall but one day they might not. They might seek to harm you, your loved ones, and everyone else that lives in the Trumperium. So keep an eye open to make sure that they don’t. Continued forays against their portion of the Wall by raiders from the Left Coast have done wonders in justifying local attitudes. Most, if not all homes in the Teton Segmentum are connected by a series of underground bunkers to house and allow the quick movement of Guardsmen raised to defend this Segmentum if and in the event of invasion.

Bordering the Canadians gives the men and women of Segmentum Kodiak little to no exposure to warfare in the Current Year against those that would seek to end civilization as we know it. Though they may prefer the comfort of their longhouses, residents of this Segmentum can be as ferocious as the winds that drive them to shelter if riled by invaders. However, from time to time, raiders from Cascadia or California manage to find their way in the northern most regions of the Trumperium find themselves suffering the wrath of the elements and wildlife than from human defenders. Recently, Cossack warbands from the Tsyber Tsardom of Russia have been requesting permission to cross into the Trumperium and launch raids into the Left Coast. Given the recent buildup of arms discovered across the Wall, their requests might be accepted.

Last but not least, is the Imperial Demense, territory under the direct rule of the Emperor himself. At least it was, until his disappearance into the world of Memes with Harambe, now it is under the administration of the Executive Regency Council until the return of the Emperor. The demense is one of the only areas of the United States left with major urban centers and terrestrial industry, and is home to the Lincoln Beanstalk. The Beanstalk is a large space elevator that connects New Washington to the New Columbia space colony, allowing fast transportation of raw materials to and manufactured goods from the colony. In the capital city itself there are three landmarks worthy of note. The first is the Imperial Palace itself, serving as the Emperor’s place of residence, where the Trumperial Congress convenes to pass legislature, and everyday citizens can request an audience with the Emperor. Due to the Emperor’s two hundred year absence, most of the residential areas have become a museum for tourists. The next two landmarks are the Trumperial Guard Memorial and the Grand Cathederal of the Memetic Priesthood, located near each other and commissioned at the same time after the conclusion of the Meme Wars and the establishment of the Trumperium. The memorial was dedicated to those early paramilitaries in the crisis following the Emperor’s assassination and the usurpation of the Shill, military units that sided against the Shill and Customs/Border Protection and Police that would form the core of the Trumperial Guard. Disciples of Harambe, the Memetic Priesthood has evolved into the Trumperium’s state religion, mixing traditional religions with American tall tales and internet-borne memetics.

Other territories in the Trumperium on Earth are the islands of Hawai’i and Puerto Rico. These island possessions have been transformed into massive fortresses, to defend the  Trumperium from the Celestial People’s Republic in the Pacific, and Gran Venezuela and Brazil in the Atlantic.

That concludes this entry. In the next, I will detail the polities that arose behind the walls in the Northeast and Left Coast,as well as the market anarchy of Nevada.

Apparently there's no RBB!!!

I was really late in getting to this, I’m sorry.  There hasn’t been any RBB for the last 3 concerts.  We thought it was a space thing in the arenas, but since last night was a stadium, clearly not.  

RBB has 2 functions- it serves as a symbol of support for the LGBT+ members of the fandom and it also serves as a coded message board showing what the boys want us to know (if we can interpret it right).

With interpreting RBB, there have always been a few questions.  The blue and green stickers are consistent with Harry and Louis, and the red one must be for Liam following that pattern.  But do the stickers show their emotions BTS or their emotions according to narrative?  Does RBB represent things that have happened, things that are happening, or things that will happen?  Not knowing these 2 things makes it very difficult even to go back and match up events with the bears.

If the way the bears give us information is actually consistent, Attitude gave us a huge key to figuring the code out.  The angry red Liam stickers on the 20th and 25th coincide with a time when it’s likely the Attitude stuff was being decided or when it was actually being filmed, so we know that the stickers are about the present things happening BTS and not the future.  Liam isn’t angry according to the narrative really, so we can assume the emotions represented by the stickers are the boys’ real emotions.

Again, we can’t really know if every single thing about the bears will follow that pattern or if some parts of them are meant to mock the current narrative while other parts are about the boys’ feelings about things that are being set up for the future.

In any case, RBB has 2 purposes.  I don’t think the boys would want to take RBB away because of any negative situation involving the fandom’s LGBT+ community.  People need more support right now, more signs of positivity, and they clearly know that based on the rainbow flags on stage.  

I would say that RBB was taken away in order to send a message with their code.  I’m not going to attempt to figure out exactly what that message is supposed to be because RBB has always stumped me, but there’s definitely a message there.
