well off society

anonymous asked:

do you have any advice for someone who wants to incorporate a harry potter verse to their non harry potter character? do you know of any guides at all? if not then it's okay!

Okay, well, you’ll have to start with the basics.

Blood StatusHouse. Bearing in mind that if you’re a Muggleborn, there is very scarce chance you will be put into Slytherin (due to the tradition and Salazar Slytherin’s own preferences.)

Nope, sorry. If you wanted me to ignore you, you probably shouldn’t have publicly commented on my post. This is not the only comment like this. You are one of many people to try to find a way around what was said/meant/implied, whatever. Because there MUST be some other meaning.

First of all, the person quoted was not the only person to make such comments and they ALL mean the same thing. “I can overlook that she’s black because the costumes are well made.” There is nothing positive about that statement. Period. Just stop trying to pretend that there is. It implies that if your costume isn’t good enough, people won’t overlook the fact that you aren’t white. As if being black is some negative factor that should be counted against you. 

Second, you are also wrong about “literally almost all of the cosplays you did were of characters who are actually white”. No. No. No. I am going to assume you do not read comic books and correct your ignorance here. Out of the 10 characters I am cosplaying in that set, guess how many have black versions in the comics. Actually no, we’re going to say out of 8 because 2 are aliens. Martian Manhunter is NOT WHITE. He’s an alien who happens to shape shift into a black man for his secret identity sometimes. Dejah Thoris is also NOT WHITE. She is also from Mars but not the same comics as Martian Manhunter. White is not the default race of the whole galaxy, people.

 So that’s 8 characters left in the set and guess who are the ONLY ones out of 8 who DON’T have a black version in the continuity that I based my costumes on?? She Hulk and Colossus. Yep, the ones with full body paint. 2 out of 8. That’s it. That’s all. Everyone else is either black all the time, or black in the continuity that I based my costume on. 

This once again proves my point, that this type of discrimination is not based on ‘accuracy’ or anything else. White supremacy allows people to make the assumption that everything SHOULD be white, and that deviations from this norm must be noted, detracted OR if you’re so 'lucky’, can be 'overlooked’ if you’re 'good enough’.

I want to thank every person on this post who complimented me on my work, or expressed joy at seeing their favorite character represented, and even the people who negatively criticized my costume work based on my sewing skills not impressing them enough. Because they saw me as a whole person and not just my race being something they had to overlook.

  • Me: The wag gap isn't real. Men take higher paying jobs.
  • Feminist: But women are discouraged from doing those jobs.
  • Me: Really have you ever tried to get one of those jobs?
  • Feminist: No but I was discouraged from doing those jobs.
  • Me: Well who was it that discouraged you?
  • Feminist: Society!
  • Me: Well flip society off why you do what ever hell you'd like. That's what a strong women would do!
  • Feminist: I mean my family. My family said I shouldn't.
  • Me: Well flip your family off why you do what ever hell you'd like. That's what a strong women would do!
  • Feminist: But...
  • Me: Besides if you are that easily discouraged, because someone told you no you aren't willing to fight for it so you don't deserve it in the first place.
  • Me: The strong fight. You rolled over because it was to hard too fight and you wanted it handed to you.
Welcome to The Commonwealth

It took an entire two weeks to reach her destination, luckily she had a map of the roads she could follow. She avoided big cities like New York City, knowing from her previous experiences, that it would most likely be a death trap. When she got there, she was surprised to see the bright blue sky, which she hasn’t seen since she left Arkansas to travel to DC. Her map had a pinpoint labeled “Diamond City.” “Hopefully I can restart…” She said to herself, as her chestnut fur Husky hopped with her down the road. After a while she ended at the giant gates of what she presumed was her destination, looking down at her Husky, she let out a sigh of relief. “We made it buddy, Diamond City.” When they walked in, the two were greeted by a well-off society. She was given many stares, mainly because of the vault suit she was wearing, but she ignored them, exploring around the city. It was getting a bit dark, but there was still some area to explore in the city. Walking down an alleyway, she see a shadowed figure leaning on the wall.
