was there a line and have i crossed it

dear fellow adults: I will not be complicit in your bullshit.

I’m at the age where a lot of my peers and friends are starting to have kids, and in fact I hope to as well in the next 2-3 years, so this is becoming more and more relevant and necessary for me to think about and say.

being an advocate means nothing if I won’t put friendships and relationships on the line for it. studying and writing essays and organizing events and teaching on issues of children’s rights is worse than worthless if I won’t stand up to my neighbor or my colleague or a stranger on a bus when they cross a line.

social injustices are fuelled by willingness to look the other way, to quietly enable, to prioritize a “united front” over moral courage. adults are socialized to act like other people’s kids are none of their business, like it’s unthinkably intrusive to speak up or act against another parent’s wishes even when you recognize that something they’re doing is wrong, because those kids “belong” to someone else.

I will not be part of that. I will lie to you to protect your child’s right to privacy. I will smuggle books to them that you’ve told them they’re not allowed to read. I will challenge you when you make cruel and dehumanizing comments about your children (or children in general) as a shitty bonding ritual with other adults. I will tear apart your unfounded rhetoric about “kids these days”. if I see you hurting your child, I will protect them, and if necessary, I will hurt you. if I see you disrespecting your child, I will tell them they have the right to expect better, and I will treat you with the lack of respect you deserve.

if I can’t educate you, I will confront, challenge, and undermine you. you’ll get no “united front” from me. I don’t care about your feelings, I don’t care about your convenience, and I don’t care what you think of me. I care that people get treated with respect, dignity, and kindness, especially by those they should be able to trust and rely on most intensely. if you can’t manage that, we’re going to have problems.

Danisnotonfire Imagine Sleeping On The Sofa

“I’m being unreasonable? All I asked you to do was do the dishes, for once and you’re telling me that was an unreasonable request!” You asked incredulously and Dan crossed his arms. 

“That’s not what this is about. It’s you constantly nagging me about things. You always say I never do enough, well that’s because I’m the one who earns the money.” Dan hit back and you shook your head, your mouth in a thin line. The fight had started earlier and you were tired of fighting, but refused to give up.

“I see. Well, if you’re fine without me, because you have all that money and if I annoy you too much, maybe I should leave.” You shouted loudly, knowing your neighbours would be annoyed in the morning.

“Maybe you should.” Dan’s voice was cold and you froze, realising that he meant it. You swallowed the lump in your throat and grabbed your things, storming out before Dan had the chance to stop you.


When you were certain Dan was asleep, you crept back into the house, having spent the night roaming the streets mindlessly. The door creaked as you closed it and you listened to Dan’s snores from the bedroom. You bit your lip and debated going to sleep in your bed, but decided against it. 

Instead, you grabbed a blanket and laid down on the sofa, using a cushion as a pillow. You fidgeted uncomfortably, the sofa hurting your back, but knew that you didn’t want to be in the same room as him. Eventually, you found a comfortable position and slowly fell asleep.


“(Y/N)! (Y/N)! Shit.” You blinked a few times, as sunlight poured into your vision. Dan’s footsteps echoed around the house, as he rushed down the stairs. As soon as he saw you, he stopped and visibly relaxed. 

“I…um y-you weren’t in bed.” He mumbled awkwardly and you remembered why you’d spent the night on the sofa.

“No, I wasn’t. How observant of you.” You muttered sarcastically and Dan looked hurt, but you were still too angry to care.

“I thought something had happened.” Dan whispered and you felt a slight pang of guilt.

“Well, I didn’t want to be in the same room as you last night. So I slept down here. Problem solved.” You sat up and Dan sat down next to you, a look of remorse on his face. 

“I’m sorry about what I said. I didn’t mean it and I know that’s not an excuse, but I don’t know what else to say. But I hate it when you’re not here and I’ll try to make sure it doesn’t happen again.” You smiled at Dan’s sweet apology and wrapped an arm around him.

“I’m sorry too.” You whispered and kissed him. Dan cupped your face and noticed your bloodshot eyes.

“Are you tired?” You nodded, remembering how many times you’d woken up. Dan quietly picked you up and started walking towards the stairs.

“I’ll let you get some sleep, whilst I sort things out.” He promised and kissed your forehead.

i’m trying really hard to be good to myself. i’m trying to nourish my body and am avoiding purging. i have a job interview lined up and my sister and i are cutting down on the smokes. fingers crossed that i’ll be able to be a positive person for you guys again.

Well, I don't think that fans hate Katie, I think that fans just hate fans because of the shipping. Supercorps are begging to kill off Mon-El, Karamel don't like Lena because of it. Probably the same happens for other ships. People are forgetting that this is all fiction, it's quite sad frankly.

Well, yeah. I mean there’s no reason to hate a Katie at all. Especially not because she got promoted, how can you hate anyone for getting a job?! But I’ve seen mean posts, and they’re about Katie especifically, not her fans. And because there’s nothing to hate about her they choose to make fun of her appearence? That’s awful. 

I do agree that some supercorp fans cross the line sometimes, and while I don’t like him and the ship I don’t think all their fans are the ones hating. Actually, I’ve seen a lot of them that like Lena and Katie. The same with some Sanvers shippers, I know they have their reasons to get mad, and I get it. However there’s many of them who like Lena and who also ship supercorp. 

I think people were mostly mad because they feel their favorite characters are not getting enough attention and screentime and they’re already regulars. Like Maggie and James. So, I kind of understand why they’re mad, however, that is in no way Katie’s fault, so is not fair to blame her for it.

I also understand why Lena might be getting more attention right now. She’s tied to the main villain of the season, and to Kara. And since Kara is the main character it makes sense that we get to see Lena more. Besides, Lena is a Luthor, and that’s a really big name in the DC world. 

Still I want the show to fix that problem and give more screen time to James and Maggie. I love them too and I’m actually dying for them to have their own plot and to have scenes with Lena! They deserve it as much as her. 

Anyway, sorry for the long answer. I’m still a little sad about it, like you said, at the end of the day it’s just fiction and we shouldn’t take our anger on real people, especially actors that are just doing their job. Thankfully, it’s a really small part of the fandom, at least that’s what I’ve seen. So, there’s still a lot of people there that are really happy for her and for what’s to come :) 

tldr: Katie is just an actor doing her job. She has done nothing wrong to deserve hate. And we can’t blame entire fandoms for what some people in them decide to do. There’s still  a lot of people, in all the fandoms, that are happy with the news! 

Everyone knows that I’m a hardcore amiibo collector, but I might have honestly reached the point where I draw the line in what amiibo I collect. I’m talking about the Mario Sports cards. I bought a few packs and I’m disappointed. They’re more expensive than the Animal Crossing cards ($6 for 5 cards as opposed to 6), they don’t do shit outside of Mario Sports Superstars (eg. a Mario card won’t work as a Mario amiibo in any other game), and they’re not even that appealing to look at; most just lazily recycle old stock art of the characters. Like I just have no desire to buy any more of these. 

So yeah, coming from the guy who owns 129 amiibo figures and nearly 300 Animal Crossing cards, the Mario Sports cards are so bad that I’m drawing the line. I will no longer be an amiibo completionist when it comes to cards.

Seriously… this is what it’s come down to? When I first saw this image I didn’t know what I was looking at, I saw the armored car and Flack vests and thought it was an image from a battle field in Afghanistan. There is a sickness creeping into our society that must be rooted out now it is the love of money over the wellbeing of human beings. It was always there but somehow slightly kept in check but somehow we have now crossed a line. #NoDapl

The Sherlock Conspiracy Theorists on this website are literally having the most fun anyone has ever had watching a television show. We are decoding puzzles on multiple media platforms by cross-referencing plot lines from stories written throughout the last 130 years all while building knowledge of literature, math, music, coding, history, geography, chemistry, and television production. We are playing The Great Game in real time. I only wish more people could’ve joined us here because we won’t find another game this intricate in our lifetime, and everyone who finds this later will always be a few steps behind.

I hope everyone realizes this Conspiracy community is not about us being right – it’s about us pushing the boundaries of our intellect and having fun in the process. It’s been an honor playing The Great Game with all of you.

when you are dating or in a relationship as a person diagnosed with bpd, it’s important to have safe words. im not talking about when in sexual situations (though that might be a neat idea too) but just for everyday-use. use a certain word when you are splitting or dissociating so your partner will be aware.

also when you are being triggered, either by your partner or something/someone else, a safe word is a great tool. especially when you are in a crowded place, so your partner can help you get somewhere quiet.

a safe word can also be needed when you are in a fight with your partner and one of you crosses a line. then you’ll be able to either apologize, stop the fight or take a “time out” - a few minutes apart to cool your heads.

you might also not need it at all, but i think it’s a good idea to have one, just for safety measures? idk, it has just saved me a lot of crying and maybe even a broken heart.

“Little do I resemble the figures of Elendil and Isildur as they stand carven in their majesty in the halls of Denethor. I am but the heir of Isildur, not Isildur himself. I have had a hard life and a long; and the leagues that lie between here and Gondor are a small part in the count of my journeys. I have crossed many mountains and many rivers, and trodden many plains, even into the far countries of Rhûn and Harad where the stars are strange. But my home, such as I have, is in the North. For here the heirs of Valandil have ever dwelt in long line unbroken from father unto son for many generations. Our days have darkened, and we have dwindled; but ever the Sword has passed to a new keeper.”

i see a lot of stuff from 18+ people esp in college who are like “omg how am i an adult i feel like i’m still a kid” and like, i get feeling like you’re still the same person because ur personality may not have changed or whatever but you /are/ an adult and i think its important to start actively viewing yourself as an adult & holding yourself responsible as an adult because just denying it or making Jokes about how immature you are can lead to some really unhealthy/unproductive/dangerous behavior for your overall growth, not the least of which is crossing lines with minors

i love villains so much. i love dramatic redemption shit, i love gradual redemption by way of the “yeah he used to be our sworn enemy but now he just kind of… hangs out with us,”  and i love the complete opposite where the baddie gets completely fucking obliterated by the protagonists and it reveals how deeply pathetic/insecure they are AND/OR it drives them way, way off the deep end of evil, civility and Lines They Previously Wouldn’t Cross abandoned by the wayside as they Totally Lose Their Shit. i especially love all variations of these where it centers on the villain having a Weird Fixation with the hero particularly if there are fucked-up makeouts but i’m not picky

i love villains

Before I say yes, I got one question. You got literally hundreds of super-cons running around since the big break-out. So … why us? Because the Rogues have a code. And you won’t cross the line, no matter how far you’re pushed.

The much anticipated “Aphotic Sequence”. This is a sigil method that I designed myself, and if you look in the tag “Aphotic Sequence” on my blog, you can see some of the sigils I’ve bad with it.

How to use:
Instead of crossing out vowels and double letters, write out your intent and use all the letters present.

The lines represent the letters. If you have a repeating letter, place a small circle at the end of the preexisting line. You don’t need to be exact with all the angles of you the lines.

Just use this picture as reference or, I would be happy to teach you how to make it. Feel free to ask me about it if you don’t understand and want to learn. Please, if you decide to use this method and post it, tag me, I’d love to see.

I’d love to see this post make its way through the community as an alternative for new and old member alike.

The Appropriation of Black Culture in K-Pop/K-Hiphop

Okay so if you don’t know, a lot of k-pop and k-hip hop has a lot of African American influence in it. When I show music videos to my parents they are surprised at how black culture has expanded all over the world now.

But there is a difference between influence and Appropriation. There are a lot of black k-pop/hip hop fans, and we love to see how our culture influences others. But sometimes people cross the line.

For example earlier today FOMO Daily posted a video of Rae Sremmurd vs MOBB. Although I didn’t watch the video I read the comments. A lot of people were mad at how people get uncomfortable/upset when non-black people wear dreads. A lot of people tried to explain the reasoning but some people just weren’t understanding.

Yes, black people are going to get upset when non-blacks wear dreads, braids, etc. We as a people have always been made fun of for our big curly hair or our dreads, or our cornrows. We were told it looked nasty or unkept. But it those are ways we protect our hair from damage, etc. We are denied jobs for wearing our natural hair. We are discriminated against because of our hair. And just because you don’t see it happen or because it’s never happened to one of your black friends, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. So when we see other people wearing it we’re gonna get pissed off. It’s not just a style that will come and go, it’s our culture. It’s like when people wear War Bonnets. That’s Native American culture not just a style. It’s disrespectful.

And going off of that, let’s talk about the word “nigga”. HELL YEA we’re gonna get pissed off when non-black people say it. Most people don’t even know the history of the word. During the slave trade people couldn’t pronounce the words “Nigeria” “Niger” and “Nigerian” so the word “Nigger” came about and was used as an offensive term towards blacks people. We took the word changed the spelling and gave it a new meaning. So no, if you’re not black don’t say “nigga”. How hard is it to refrain from saying one word??

There is a lot of controversy with idols saying “Nigga”. The only thing they have to do is apologize and admit they were wrong for saying it.

So we have no problem with the influence. In fact it’s very exciting and cool to see how our culture has touched all parts of the world. But there’s always a line that shouldn’t be crossed.

Proof of Janstar In Mathmagic

I believe this episode has given us an example of a timeline in which Janna works up the courage to ask out Star! This, as you may suspect, is due to the following lines:

Janna: “Hey Star, why did the chicken cross the road?”

Star: “What?”

Janna: “To ask out the rooster.”

What a peculiar punchline! I’ve certainly never heard that one before. Yet, was Janstar intended to be on our minds? Yes, I believe it was! You see, immediately after Raid the Cave premiered, By the Book played.

Glossaryck: “Friends? Well, that’s such a simple concept.”

Raid the Cave had us all wondering if Glossaryck’s intentions were pure or not.

Glossaryck: “Oh. I thought we were friends.”

By the Book sought to have us sympathize with Glossaryck by showing him in a saddened state. One may conjure up many theories as to why Glossaryck acted the way he did, if he truly feels emotions, etc. However, the point remains that By the Book aired after Raid the Cave. Surely this was no mere coincidence; rather, it was strategic planning designed to refresh us on the character and have us contemplate them. So what played immediately after Mathmagic?

That’s right, Girl’s Day Out! This is the most influential Janstar episode, if not Bon Bon the Birthday Clown. Why would Girl’s Day Out specifically be chosen to air after Mathmagic? To ensure Janstar is on our minds and reaffirm their relationship!

Just look at that smile! So what can we say about this timeline? Well, nothing has changed asides from Janna’s beanie and some minor dialogue. This is not an outlandish world, it is a very plausible reality for Star.

Star: “That joke, you just told me it a minute ago, but it was a little different.”

Janna: “What are you talking about?!”

I didn’t catch this the first time I watched the episode, but Janna seems extraordinarily displeased with Star here. I thought it was just because what Star’s saying makes no sense to Janna. However, Janna is also likely upset that her attempt to ask out Star was called a “joke”.

Janna may have been working up the courage to ask Star out for a long time, and phrasing it in such a wacky form may have been Janna’s way of making it memorable. To see Star react in such a manner would surely be disheartening.

So, this alternate timeline in which Janstar is unequivocally canon is a very possible reality. Girl’s Day Out aired after Mathmagic specifically to instill the romantic pairing of the two in our heads and have us view the episode in such a light. Coupled with the descriptions of upcoming episodes and screenshot of Janna with her arm around Star, I think the future is very bright for Janstar!
