we've come for you all

It’s only been a little over a year, and we’ve gone from this 

to this

and I couldn’t be more proud of our boys. We’ve gone through so much, and I really hope we can continue to grow as a fandom to love and support our boys who deserve the world. <3333

its been so long but im still trying to figure out how you could go from “i love you” to “i don’t care about you anymore” in such a short amount of time

I drew the Seekers bc they make me happy, when they emote their wings go flap flap!!!! ;A;

  • ---Outside Keith's Room---
  • Lance: Hey, Keith? Buddy, you in there?
  • Keith: Go away Lance.
  • Lance: //Enters anyway//
  • ---Inside Keith's Room---
  • Keith: I don't want to talk Lance, just leave me alone ok?
  • Lance: Hey, nobody's seen you since breakfast, who said anything about talking? I came to make sure you hadn't died or something.
  • Keith: ....
  • Lance: But we could always talk since I'm here now anyway. //Sits on the bed//
  • Keith: Lance-
  • Lance: C'mon man, everyone's worried about you. You barely show your face around the castle, and whenever you do you avoid everyone like you're on some kind of stealth mission.
  • Keith: //Scoffs// Nobody is worried about me, and I'm not avoiding everyone... I just...
  • Lance: //Frowns// Keith, we're a team, if you're upset, we all feel it. The whole team's out of whack. Just talk to me - despite what Pidge might have told you, I am great with feelings and junk.
  • Keith: I don't - It's just - Ugh, it's just easier not to see everyone judging me, and hating me if I'm not around them, ok?! I don't care what you say, I've seen the way they look at me - and I look normal now, but what if it gets worse? What if I do start going purple? Or I sprout fur or something stupid like that. How would they look at me then? I'd be just another Galra....... Lance, I don't think I should be on the team anymore.
  • Lance: Wait what? Are you kidding! You think you should be off the team? The team that the Red Lion chose you for? That's crazy! Keith, you've saved everyone's butts loads of times, what would we do without you? How would we form Voltron? And you know, keep the universe safe?
  • Keith: You'd find someone else-
  • Lance: There is no one else Keith! *You're* the Red Paladin. So what if you're Galra? ... Well, sure, there's the whole being a member of the race that's 'trying to take over the universe, destroy entire civilisations and trying to kill us all the time' thing but-
  • Keith: Great, that makes me feel much better.
  • Lance: Well when I say it like that it sounds bad, but that's not all you are. You're Keith first, before any of all that. It's just been a bit of a shock - it's raw you know? Everyone will come to terms with it, trust me... Like I don't know if you've noticed, but Hunk's pretty much got an alien girlfriend
  • Keith: What?
  • Lance: Sure, nobody's judging. And we've all seen Shiro's badass glowing arm thing - also Galra I might add. Does it make us think any less of him? No way! And I'm also convinced Pidge is part computer, I just don't have any proof yet.
  • Keith: //Smiles//
  • Lance: Allura's probably gonna take a little longer than the rest of us, but she's still hurting, and hey, she's like over 10,000 years old, she just needs to get with the times. Like, Galra Keith? Whatever, am I right?
  • Keith: ...... //Chuckles// Thanks Lance.
  • Lance: So don't worry, just come back to the team, we miss you. We've all got our little hang ups and stuff, so it's ok
  • Keith: Yeah, everyone except you - you're perfect
  • Lance: Uh-
  • Keith: - ! //Flustered//
  • Lance: //Flustered as hell//

yeah, i’ll always love you guys too :)

A Year...

Wow! It will be a year at the end of May since we started this birthday blog. The intent was to be able to celebrate every birthday in the fandom. We saw a few of the bigger bloggers had well-known birthdays and received gifs, stories, asks; all types of bday wishes, but we knew there were so many more out there that we didn’t know about. So many that we wanted to know about! And so EBD was born to give opportunity for birthday blessings on anyone’s special day. All they had to do was ask. 

We begged for our first asks - please let us write a story for you! - and once they began to roll in we knew we were going to need help. That came in the form of our fandom’s talented authors, without whom this blog would have been an utter failure! We can’t thank you enough for getting behind us and supporting our vision, and helping us be able to celebrate with everyone! 

We have loved every minute, every story, every submission that this blog has attracted and we’re so thankful for the fun and fulfillment it’s given us to be able to connect with the fandom. That being said, we have closed our ask box. If you’ve already submitted an ask that hasn’t been posted don’t worry! We will be posting the rest of the birthdays that have made it to us until there are none left. We hope you’ve loved this as much as we have! The blog will stay up - there are just too many great stories here for future fandom bloggers - and we will complete our masterlist, but at this time we will not be accepting more birthday asks. It kills us to close the ask box, but we hope you’ll understand. 

Thank you all so much for everything! The girls at EBD

To all the aces who are just coming out, who have come into the community in the midst of all the discourse and think that this is what they’re going to be living with: judgement, exclusion, misrepresentation, and erasure …

It gets better.

It gets so. much. BETTER.

I came out almost ten years ago now. Ten years ago, most of the videos on asexuality I found on YouTube were made by a single (but awesome) creator. Ten years ago, the Wikipedia article on asexuality had only a few quick paragraphs and very few resources. Ten years ago, if by chance asexuality was featured in the news, it was almost always presented with extreme skepticism and disrespect. Ten years ago, if you told someone, outside of AVEN or a few other select online communities, that you were asexual, it was a MIRACLE if they knew what that meant.

Ten years ago, the idea that we would be visible enough for people to know what “asexual” meant was a far-off dream.

In some areas, it still is. We have a long way to go, and a lot of battles yet to fight. Visibility brings resistance and judgement, and that’s not a fun reality to face.

But go through the asexual tags. Even if you see discourse (and unless you’ve blocked 200 people like I have, you probably will), look at the notes on the posts. Look at how many people know we exist. And look at all the people supporting us.

It gets better. It’s already gotten better, and it is going to get so much better still.

If this is how far we’ve come in ten years, I can’t wait to see what the next ten years will bring.

We can do this. I have no doubt.

“Now, follow my lead. Step where I step. Swag where I swag.”
“Swag? I have no idea what that means!”
“Did I not just tell you to follow my swag?”

Jim Gordon has accepted that it is literally impossible to get any of the Batkids’ attention if the K-9 unit is around.
