we come from

hello it is i, here to yell again

remember how ryuji barely knew us, didn’t have a persona, and no fighting ability but still told us to run

then still came BACK to the metaverse bringing a toy gun not having any idea it’d be useful, just brought it because he wanted to do SOMEthing to help? 

REMEMBER HOW HE STOOD BY US WITH ZERO REASON TO BESIDES HE’S GOT A BIG HEART THAT LOVES AND PROTECTS EVERYONE AND WOULD HAVE SACRIFICED HIMSELF FOR US WITH ZERO REASON TO BESIDES HE’S GOT A DAMAGED HEART THAT THINKS HE’S NOT WORTH SAVING HIMSELF?

ok i am done now, stay tuned for more yelling that i’m sure will come

SHIPPING INFO // Answer the following for your muse(s) so people know how shipping works on your blog. REPOST. Don’t reblog.

What’s your OTP for your Muse?: I really think you’d have to be very VERY new to this blog to not know the answer to this question, but for the sake of filling this out properly, I’m inclined to be indulgent. Guy and Hook. Hook and Guy. The Pirate and the Knight, and every AU variation thereof. OTP Black Seas. 

What are you willing to RP when it comes to shipping?:  Anything, really. We’ve done the absolute fluffiest fluff to some of the most cringe-worthy smut on the planet. (I seem to recall a VERY nsfw m/m/f threesome thread several years ago…*shudders*) So yeah, needless to say, just about anything can happen around here.

How large does the age gap have to be to make it uncomfortable?:   Well, since there’s currently 15 years age difference between me and Taylor, it’s unlikely that our muses will even come close to being that far apart in age. I think our College AU probably has the biggest age gap, and even that is only about 12 years or so. But one thing we never write - EVER - is underage NSFW stuff. Just…no.

Are you selective when shipping?: Hells yes. So selective, in fact, that I only do it with one person. It’s been over two years now since this blog went single-ship exclusive, and I’ve never regretted it for a moment. I can’t even begin to explain how good it feels to find someone you’re completely, utterly comfortable with, someone you can write literally anything from a 12 paragraph novella to the most ridiculous crack and they just roll with it. That’s what I found with Taylor and her Hook, and it’s made shipping easy, stress free and fun. And isn’t that why we’re all here?

How far do steamy moments have to go before they’re considered NS.FW?:  Once there’s groping or grinding, usually. Definitely once the clothes come off. I’m a mom, so I tend to be much more aggressive about tagging things - I look at it from the “what would I NOT want my kid to see accidentally” perspective. ;-)

Who are other muses you ship your muse with?: Just Hook. Guy is a one trick pony, lol.

Does one have to ask to ship with you?: You can ask, but it won’t get you very far. 

How often do you like to ship?: We have verses where they’re just acquaintances so far, and some where they’ve been married for a year or more, it just depends on the verse/thread and where they’re at. Shipping has to come naturally, we never force a ship to happen.

Are you multiship?:  No. Unless you count the 396596 AUs that Guy and Hook have - then it’s definitely multiship. O_O

Are you ship obsessed or ship more-or-less?: The ships that we’ve established already are definitely ones where I’m ship obsessed. But the verses that don’t have established relationships? I’m perfectly happy to wait for them to develop on their own. 

What is your favorite ship in your current fandom?: Ugh. If I had to choose, I’d probably say Will and Djaq, though everyone in the show pretty much drives me nuts at this point lol

Finally, how does one ship with you?:  Well, you have to be a Taylor and write a canon-divergent Killian Jones/Hook. Sadly that’s the only way it’ll ever happen. :-P

TAGGED BY:  saw it and snagged it from @leomatrem a while back, before her URL change to @wineinthewidow
TAGGING: @piraticalwit @leadkiss @damnbutcher @nimueries @hclliday @hangtherules @voiceofourteeth @thecodekeeper @trickstercaptain @beruthielthequeen @crimeblogger @storybrookeswan @fcrestmaiden @tirelxss @xprodigium @yohoitsalex (for Apollo) and @stvrvcined (your choice of muse!)

I really do believe that at least part of the problem of people distrusting science has to do with how we as scientists portray ourselves.

We have actively created a system where we derive authority from being seen as better/smarter/more competent than everyone else and then when people ask why they should trust us we respond with a very condescending version of ‘because SCIENCE IS FACT’ or something along those lines.

Like, consider how that would feel from the outside? Here are a small group of people who you have never met/interacted with who sequester themselves in impenetrable ~elite institutions that you can’t access and don’t feel party to who then tell you that what they say is fact because they’re smarter and better educated than you. And if you ever try to question them (no matter how reasonable your objections may be/seem to you) they condescendingly pat you on the head and say something like ‘don’t worry we know better. you can’t possibly understand what we do.’

Why the hell would you trust them? 

No one likes being told that they’re not smart enough to understand something, and no one likes feeling excluded from something they’ve essentially been asked to accept sight unseen. 

I don’t really have a solution to this, except some vague notion about working harder to portray scientists as people working a job, rather than geniuses who are above it all. 

And like trying harder to understand where people are coming from when they question science. And remembering that being better educated than most doesn’t make us smarter than most. It just makes us better trained in certain types of thinking.

I just think we need to keep in mind what we are asking of people. Which is to put a whole hell of a lot of faith in us.

The family that pranks together stays together. Also I’m pretty sure Ezra is just glad that Sabine has stopped pranking him in favor of a new crewmember. Also welcome, Specter 7! Also I SPENT ALL DAY MAKING THIS STUPID COMIC HELP

Bonus:

after the law that the romanian government passed 3 days ago (which as i said in my last post, would effectively make corruption legal (if under 45k euros, good joke) and would pardon everyone who previously got arrested for it) , thousands upon thousands of people went out in the streets to protest, making this the largest protest romania’s had since the 1989 revolution

it hasnt even been 30 years, i really hope we can stop it here and now

Okay you know what I know we were all so worried about biphobia or slut shaming or what have you but honestly I thought they handled that incredibly well? It makes perfect sense for them to be a little bit anxious about that disparity, and especially for Alec I can imagine there’s a lot of insecurity there and I think if they hadn’t touched on that it would have been almost unrealistic? And Alec didn’t have a bad reaction, he got scared. And Magnus also was surprised by Alec’s lack of experience, you know? Which I feel like puts them both in an equally wrong footed position and made that awkwardness totally understandable. And they resolved it right away and agreed to put in the effort necessary to understand and be with each other like bless this show for giving us the malec we deserve

  • Jack: Gabe? You okay?

365 days of ryan ross; day 39 (oh my god look at jon)

ok but i really want a reincarnated lovers plot. and i don’t mean just like “oh muse a and and muse b were lovers in a past life!!!” altho those are great too i mean like………they’ve had SO MANY LIVES TOGETHER, ok, they consistently find each other, sometimes they get together, sometimes they don’t, it usually ends in death, right, but wouldn’t it be cool if we had a main verse that we rped in (probably modern times) where muse a and muse b were drawn to each other because of all this and had to figure out why but WHILE WE WERE DOING THAT……..we’d consistently have other threads going where we explored their past lives. so like we’d have two or more threads going at once – one where we explored their current lives, let them get close and figure each other out, and another where we explored their past lives as royalty or outlaws or pirates or peasants or WHATEVER. (and in those secondary threads we could explore their lives but also their DEATHS IMAGINE IT!!!!) and occasionally in the main plot thread they’d have flashes of memories or dreams from the secondary plot threads. i mean COME ON JUST IMAGINE IT!!!!!

This plot has been taken !!   I’ll be less likely to develop this now, unless you have a very unique spin :)
