we play it right

average minimum wage in the united states is $7.25 an hour, which amounts to $290 dollars at the end of a 40 hour work week before taxes, and to be honest, if you ask me, thats fucking criminal

I don’t care what the person is doing, because at the end of the day they absolutely are generating more profit than that for the owner of whatever establishment they’re personally working for

you can’t claim their jobs are only worth $7.25 an hour when so much more money is made off of their labor than that.

you think jeff bezos net worth is over 100 billion because he pays his employees what they’re worth? absolutely not.

you can sit around all day claiming these people don’t deserve more money than what they’re generating, but if they do not deserve the money they’re making, then how are they making that much money for the person they work for

if we’re going to play it by “the market is always right” then these people working jobs you consider useless should be making far more than double what they legally earn.

Shiro is not a sexual predator. He is in no way in a relationship with any other Voltron character. These characters mean so much to me as someone who works on it and as a fan. They feel like family to me, just like the voice actors who play them do. As any family will, we joke with one another. We poke, we prod, we tease, and we play – there is so much more in this world right now to be pissed about. No one in the cast condones pedophilia and to have fans constantly accuse us of that is exhausting and frustrating.

(because I couldn’t HELP myself, okay?)

Jack knew, though. He knew.

There hasn’t been a doubt in his mind. Every time he’s been down to Samwell, every time he watched from a corner in the kitchen as Bitty simultaneously baked muffins and batted away Holster’s interference and counseled the tadpoles on affairs of the heart, it’s been obvious. As much as Jack loves Bittle, this team loves him too. All of them love him.

It’s not just love, though. It’s just that Jack understands the love most. But there’s more to it. Another side to Bittle that he hasn’t been privileged to see, that he can’t see from his vantage point as a former captain and now-boyfriend.

Jack gets his first glimpse of it when the tadpole – Whiskey, his name is – comes in and asks Bittle about his wrist shot. Two years ago, a year ago even, Bittle would have turned to Jack and said, “Gosh, I’m not sure I can – better ask the master.” This time, Bittle out-and-out forgets Jack’s in the room. He picks up a spatula and uses it as a prop to explain launch angles from the stick blade, and Whiskey watches with rapt attention. It’s the look on Whiskey’s face that strikes Jack. He’s never looked at Bittle like that; he’s never had cause to. But Whiskey does.

one question: why did jack put the date of “say goodbye” in the escapists thumbnail?  i’m pretty sure @ad-gloriam​ and i have figured this out.

well, the tags in the “say goodbye” DID just change, didn’t they?

they looked like this:

and now they look like this:

but why?

anti wanted to see if we could figure out that something had changed. the date in the thumbnail was him dropping a hint.

we’ve figured out all the other hints he’s given us, and he knows that; he’s messing with us and making us think we can figure him out.

we’re “good puppets”. we’re playing right into his hands.

BTS: His reaction to you trying to leave him ( mafia au)

Part 2/2

You run away from them


Suga- You could hear the sound of leaves crunching under your foot as you ran away from the cabin that yoongi rented out for you on your anniversary. Your heart beat was so loud if felt like it was pounding in your ears, you were scared, yoongi can find you at any moment and you were determine to not let that happen. You had snuck away in the dead of the night while he was sleeping, it had been an eventful day full of fake smiles and laughter and love but as soon as the lights went out you put you plan in motion. You knew escaping him wouldn’t be easy but its better to try while he’s a asleep then never. Stopping for a break would put a set back in time, by now yoongi would have sent his men to go and look for you but you had to stop and catch your breath. You must of sat for less then a minute before you heard the sound of foot steps approaching. They were too close for you to run so the best thing to do it hide. You held you hand over your mouth as you tried to steady you breathing. “ kitten I know your out here” you heard his taunting voice get closer. You had hidden in a falling tree, the thought of him catching you now sent shivers on your spine. “Come on kitten do you really want to see your suga turn sour? Hmm?” Yoongi began to sound annoyed, you had ran away from him and ruined his sleep, you knew that if he caught you your actions wouldn’t go unpunished. “ Fine, you want to play games, then let play. How about we switch it up kitten, lets quit this game of hide and seek.” The foot steps stopped and when you looked up he stood right infront of you. Yoongi gripped your shirt collar and pulled you up slightly choking you before pushing you down to the ground. He stood over you like you were his prey and you were. A sly smirk grew on his face as he crouched down to your level, he pulled you by the back of you neck so you were now face to face. “ How about… we play a game of cat and mouse, you like that game right (Y/N)? I’ll give you a head start. 1..2..3.. I would start running if I were you kitten because if I catch you before you make it home I’ll double your punishment.”

Jin- For the past week you have been planning your escape from him, and you’ve been very carful at doing so, or so you thought. The day had came faster than what you expected but it was perfect jin left town for a business trip last night and you were alone for the remainder of the weekend. You loaded the car with your luggage and began the journey of a long drive ahead. You knew Jin had a tracker on the car so you would drive the car to a remote town and then catch a bus some where Jin could never find you, your plan seemed perfect. However jin had notice the little bit of clothes missing, he notice the distance in behavior, even when you thought he didn’t he did. The phone began to ring and you press the answer button on the steering wheel to answer. “ Oppa hi, is something the matter? How’s your business trip” You tried to play the anxiousness in your voice off “ Everything is fine babygirl I’ve noticed that you’ve taken the car for a little drive, where yah heading?” You calmed your voice before speaking “ The mall, I wanted to surprise you with a gift when you return” Jin can hear the false happiness in your voice. “Well you are full of surprises aren’t you doll” Jin’s change of voice had you slightly on edge, you let out a soft chuckle “ What do you mean Oppa?” Jin’s voice grew angry and he scoffs “ What do I mean? Doll do you honestly think I was going to fall for that bullshit the fell from your mouth? Turn the car around. “ “W-what?” “Turn the car around doll and I promise the punishment won’t be as harsh. Do you think I didn’t know you were trying to leave me, after all I’ve done for you?!” You began to get even more anxious and paranoid until suddenly you notice the cars behind you following. “Whats wrong doll? Got nothing to say? If you don’t turn the car around ill do something to. Make you stop”. Suddenly a black car swerved in front of you and hit its breaks causing you to collide with the side of the vehicle. You felt the blood run down your face and pain on the lower part of your body. The car door suddenly open and there stood Jin a perfectly clear black suit, he pulled and picked you up out of the car before caring you back to the his, you vision fading. “Don’t worry doll you’re not hurt as bad as you think, and don’t think because your injured you get out of your punishment.” You saw the sinister look in him eyes as he placed you in the car and placed a kiss on you head, and soon everything went black.

v-  You had thought he wouldn’t have notice you gone with all the people in the room and his security lowing their guard. Now would have been a better time then any to just walk right out the front door. So that’s what you did, but you couldn’t just walk out of the front door and leave forever you had to make it seem like you were here, that you never left. “Tae” you spoke softly, he looked up at you and a smile spread across his face as he stood up. “ What’s wrong love?” You shook your head indicating that nothing was wrong before speaking up “ I’m just a little tired I think I’ll head up to the bedroom to get some rest.” Tae nodded his head slowly before giving you a skeptical look. “Okay, go gets some rest I’ll be there when the party clears out”. You quickly pecked his cheek before walking towards the stairs, you could feel his eyes on you and you made the mistake of looking back at him. There was a tenseness there, he face sat still before he gave you a small smirk, you returned a soft smile as you saw him turn back to the men at the table. You quickly ran up the steps and dressed out of your expensive close before throwing on something more comfortable and warm, if you were going to run away from him, you’d have to dress the part. You made a beeline to the emergency exit located in hallway outside you room and ran outside. You could see the gate that separated you from the outside world, and the terror that stayed behind those house walls just feet away from you. You felt your heartbeat pick up, you where finally going to be free, you can finally escape this place. “Sweetheart, where do you think you’re going?” Your heard tae’s voice speak from behind you, before you felt his hands wrap around you waist pulling you into his body. He lets out a soft chuckle “ When you said that you where tired I thought that it was code for something else. I guess you lied, if you have this much energy to run away from me, then maybe we can put that energy into doing something else.” He pulled you back to the house, you can feel the heat coming off his body, he was annoyed you can feel it, you might even say he’s pissed. “ I’ll make sure to exhaust that energy, and then you’ll see how ‘tired you can really get.”

Jungkook- ‘maybe I should  slip in his food or drink to knock him out?’ The thought crossed your mind as you prepared dinner for both you and Jungkook, you wanted to make this night special for jungkook because tonight would be the last dinner he’ll have with you. You began setting the table and fixing the food onto the plates, you were just about to call jungkook and ask him where he was, but the front door opened as he strolled in. A smile streached across his face at the smell of cooked steak hitting his nose, he made his way over to where you sat and planted a kiss on the top of your head before sitting down himself. “So… what’s the special accession? Did I miss something, anniversary, birthday, baby are you pregnant?!” The last one caught you off guard as you choked on your food from surprise, “What? No.. I just.. I just, I knew you were working hard so I decided to help you relax a little and cook you a meal.” You gave him a small smile and he returned it with a goofy grin on his face. “Well, I work hard for you baby. To keep you safe you know, it’s all about keep you and my fortune safe” You just nodded you head in agree, you guys continued small talk from there before jungkook decided to change the topic to something else. “I noticed that you brought one plane ticket out of the country? Is that another way to help my relax?” He let out a soft chuckle before continuing “ you know baby you’re a plane ticket short? I would like if you tag alone with me, maybe we can relax together? Get away from the stress and dangers of the mafia for a little.” A small gasp left you lips before you covered it up with a drink of water. How did he know you brought a ticket out of the country, you payed with cash, so there won’t be a trace, you knew he had eyes everywhere but you never knew just how close he was watching you, it made you nervous about what else he knew. Jungkook must of seen the shook look on your face because his smile suddenly fell and his eyes closed in to slits “unless you where planning on leaving… which would be impossible because baby even when I’m not around you I’m around you, and I know what you do at all times.” Your face gave it all away you stood up quickly to try and make a break for the door, it’s better to try then to sit her and be trapped right? But jungkook had other plans, as soon as you made the move to stand up he was already grabbing you by your arm, and pulled you into his side. “ you know baby, you really stupid for trying to leave, you think I wouldn’t have known that you were up to something. You need to understand that you are mine, and I keep a close eye on what belongs to me.” “Jungkook I-” “ Save it. When I’m done with you, you won’t be able to get a word out, let alone walk” He started to pull you towards the step and up to your shared room. “ You wanna go on a trip? Okay, I’ll take you on a trip, one were you’ll be begging me to let you cum baby.”

Winn is the first one to point it out to her, and when he does and she finally sees it, she’s not quite sure how she’s missed it.

“She does this thing with her eyebrows whenever she calls you her friend.” He wiggles them in an approximation of Lena’s expression. “She doesn’t do it when she’s talking to me though. Or James. Or Alex, or Maggie.”

“Lena is my friend, Winn, I thought we’d gone through this already.” She rolls her eyes. “Multiple times.”

“That’s not what I’m saying, she’s not evil, unless we’re playing video games or hacking-” Kara gives him a hard look, “-hacking cough,” and it’s probably the fakest cough she’s heard in her life, but at least she has plausible deniability if someone asks if she knows what they’ve been up to.

“Sorry,” another fake cough, “choked on air, you know how that goes! No? Okay, anyways.” He clears his throat. “Like I was saying, Lena could be an evil mastermind if she wanted, but she definitely doesn’t. She just,” he wiggles his eyebrows again, “moves her eyebrows funny when she talks to you.”

Kara frowns and doesn’t respond, resolving to look closer the next time she sees Lena.

You got a haircut. It looks nice. Although I’ll always love your messy yet neat hair. Oh how I wish I could run my fingers through your beautiful brown hair while smiling at you. To play with your hair as we lay down together, would be amazing right now.

lotta people on my posts saying “make will gay you cowards” and “they’ll never actually confirm it” and mmm not to count chickens or anything but. 

i think as a queer audience we’ve been conditioned over the course of several decades to notice subtext, and then to doubt our interpretations - we can, in other words, make the case for a character being interpreted as gay, but we have no expectation that the show will ever bring that narrative above board.

and this played out with stranger things, right? we watched the show, we noted several implications that will might be gay, and then we promptly said, “well, the showrunners will never do it,” because that’s the way it’s always worked. 

but then this pitch for the series turns up, in which will is described as being “a sweet, sensitive kid with sexual identity issues.” and for all the ways the story and characters have changed since that original pitch, will’s description has remained very consistent. there’s a lengthy exchange in the first episode, in which joyce byers says that will’s father “said [will] was queer,” which is borrowed almost verbatim from that character description.

and nobody wants to get burned, right. nobody wants to say that this time it won’t just be subtext, this time we’ll actually get to see a gay character. popular media doesn’t have a good enough track record that we can be confidently making these kinds of proclamations. 

but then, like. if a showrunner pitches a twelve-year-old boy “with sexual identity issues.” if this character is shown, repeatedly, to be the target of anti-gay bullying. if the writers make sure we hear a long story about how he once drew “a rainbow spaceship” with every crayon in the box, and his mom was “so, so proud” to display it. if we see him grimace through (and initially refuse) an awkward dance with an unnamed girl - in what is, essentially, his only interaction with a girl in seventeen episodes? and if the costume department prominently incorporates rainbows into this unnamed girl’s outfit? 

like, i’ll quit while i’m ahead, but: maybe we’re in a new moment. maybe this isn’t bullshit. maybe several years of broken trust between showrunners and queer audiences is keeping us from acknowledging the obvious and intentional hints that the showrunners are dropping. outside of that leaked pitch, nothing has been “confirmed” - but again, we only just finished the second of a planned five seasons, and the character is still only twelve years old. what we’ve seen so far is a pretty age-appropriate (and period-appropriate) depiction of a young kid who is just beginning to realize that he doesn’t seem to like girls the way his friends like girls, who gets picked on for being “sensitive,” who gets called names like “fairy.” and that’s to say nothing of more elaborate interpretations - i.e., the upside down as the closet, reagan administration doctors being fearful of the mysterious virus plaguing will, etc.

so i really don’t think it’s stupid or outrageously optimistic to look at all of this and say, yeah, okay, they appear to be purposefully laying the foundation for this character to eventually explore his identity and come out as gay. i’m not saying they’ve done a perfect job - and god knows they’ve been clumsy about representing women and people of colour, too - but there’s honestly very little evidence to support the idea that the showrunners did all of this unintentionally.
