we were all just humans

And in the end, we were all just humans… Drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.
—  F. Scott Fitzgerald

I’m so tired of tumblr forcing fans of Moffat-era Who to defend ourselves and why we like the show. Rant below the cut.

“You can’t just make such allegations about the Queen!”
“Why not? I can say whatever I want about WhiteBear!”

Briar is now convinced the Queen is into women

I tried drawing @teadroplet ’s version of Outertale Gaster and gained some mad respect for the detail they consistently put into this design. Like seriously you guys should go check out their work if you haven’t already!! It’s frickin gorgeous!

Also just send your love that direction in general they deserve it so so much.

The signs as F Scott Fitzgerald quotes

Aries: “But his heart was in a constant, turbulent riot.”

Taurus: “I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find you are not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

Gemini: "her philosophy is carpe diem for herself, and laissez-faire for others”

Cancer: “And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.”

Leo: “You mustn’t confuse a single failure with a final defeat.”

Virgo: “A well-chosen book saves you from everything, including yourself.”

Libra: "She was beautiful - but especially she was without mercy.”

Scorpio: "The fire blazing in her dark and injured heart seemed to glow around her like a flame.”

Sagittarius: "I’m a slave to my emotions, to my likes, to my hatred of boredom, to most of my desires.”

Capricorn: "There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy, and the tired.”

Aquarius: “Every one suspects himself of at least one of the cardinal virtues, and this is mine: I am one of the few honest people that I have ever known.”

Pisces: "No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart.”

I really think there’s something to be said about current movements for social acceptance/reform and the emphasis placed on “sameness.” I see a lot of people that solely focus on how ‘everyone is human,’ ‘we all bleed red,’ etc., and while I absolutely think there is always a place for reminding everyone of our shared humanity and other similarities, I think it’s a fine balance between asserting that sort of unity without trying to erase people’s differences, especially in regards to marginalized communities. Yes, we are all human and we all have things in common, but people also have lots of different experiences and come from multitudes of different backgrounds and cultures, and have lots of differences physically, mentally, and otherwise! And sometimes, I think well-intentioned and compassionate people come off as dehumanizing in a rhetoric that ONLY focuses on sameness. I really would like to see more of an embrace and recognition of our differences, alongside calls for recognizing things people have in common.

Because sometimes what I want to hear isn’t “See, these people(you) are just like us!” sometimes what I really want to hear is “Wow, you do things differently, and you see things differently than me! That’s neat, please tell me more!”
