where this was going as a photoset

Let's do something!

I want you to get creative and take a picture from your window (or any window). I would love to see what you all are seeing. Oh, and tell me where are you from :)

You can submit the pictures by clicking HERE or go to the submit button on my profile!

I think that @franciscomarin did this a while ago. If you don’t follow him do it because he is a fantastic photographer.

So I’ve been overwhelmed by the black panther comicon appearance and I’ve been dwelling on how revolutionary the black panther movie is going to be, what it’s going to mean to countless people when this movie comes out and how long we still have to go, So I decided to put this short photoset together to illustrate exactly how big of a deal it is and how it is bigger than one person.

it’s so bittersweet because when I was younger (especially growing up where I did, a black kid in Finland) I really wished I had more access to imagery and media that reflected who I was because it would have made my life radically different for the better and I wouldn’t be at 26 (STILL) doing damage control but on the flipside, I’m so in awe of all of the beautiful talent in 2016 that younger black kids are able to see and be inspired by.

I think I was like 4 years old when I conciously picked up race and color via watching Disney’s “Aladdin” and I noticed how Jafar, the evil royal guards etc the villains were more ethnic looking or a shade darker than the “good” characters.

it’s insidious because you’re seeing something but at age 4, you don’t have the comprehension skill or knowledge to break it down and see it for what it is (Colorism, Societal bias against black people which is rooted in centuries of white supremacist doctrine, society associates things that are dark/darker colors with evil, danger, ugliness, dirt etc) and reject it.

so you pick it up and see it on a surface level and you think to yourself “well darker must mean ugly, criminal and less human”…then what happens when you look at yourself in the mirror and find out that you are black?


  how is that going to impact how you see yourself?

and guess what? if a 4 year old black kid can pick that up and internalize that about him/her/themselves….then a white kid can sponge up the same language and imagery that dehumanizes black people too (subconciously/conciously)…what happens when when these people grow up? become teachers, doctors, law enforcement etc? what kind of impact is that going to have?

I’m going off on a tangent and that’s just one personal example but society does that on a global grand scale and it is largely unchecked.

but honestly though,look at the photoset and think about how many talented people out there that we love and respect….who would NOT have achieved the things they did if it wasn’t for another person before them inspiring them to reach their goals and acting as trail blazers when it seemed as though it was impossible….then think about the flipside and how many people, with all the potential in the world, never lived to become great because they were met with more images dehumanizing them than ones uplifting them…this is why the fight for HONEST representation is important and it continues.

argh, I didn’t plan on typing anything but I got in my feelings after watching this again

…anyway, here are some pictures to make you smile, the next gen gives me hope

and if none of that gets you going, here is a video of Michael Jackson surprising James Brown on stage and then thanking him for being his biggest influence (BET awards, 2003)

“My name is Kira Yoshikage. I can’t remember when or how I died. But one thing I can say is that I feel certain I will not go to heaven.”

Araki: [Dead Man’s Questions] is a work where I drew a character who longs for the peace of his heart even after death, and who continues to grow mentally. This character is the greatest adversary in ’JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4’: a dead murderer.

“anyone of any gender can be a studyblr”, where each word has its own image and each image is a different color, going from the typical girl-pink to the typical boy-blue

I recently made a photoset like this one about origin, but sadly it only had females in the photos. I’d like for everyone to know that anyone of any gender or sex is allowed to be a part of the Studyblr community. You don’t have to be female.

I’m going to scream.

This is seriously an amazing au. I feel the need to write for it and make cool prompts and hnnnnnnng.

But in all seriousness, this is my dream as a Fanfiction author. Well-thought out with a detailed background, it makes for a good pre-layout, much like an actual show/book would. It also has essential dynamics(Changing, Life, the whole ice scenario) that create a solid backbone for authors. With how it’s written, I could clearly see details and feel any artist wanting to create fanart for this AU could easily do it(but then again I’m not an artist so who am I to say).

It has so much potential that I can’t put it into words! It’s just so well thought out and beautiful and I seriously can’t wait to see more of it. Hell, I may even write a couple drabbles based off of it! With credit of course. An AU like this has potential for authors and artists alike to practice scenes they may not be used to writing, mainly high-action, face-paced scenes or incredibly dangerous stealth scenes.

I know I’ve gone on for so long, but I love AUs like this and I’m incredibly happy that Yuri!!! On Ice has one like it. I’ve roleplayed and written a few AUs for this series, but none have truly caught my attention like this one.

I was way to into that…I may have to write a fic version of this because i got to the end and was like ‘awwwwwww it’s over??’ I need more!!! Permission to attempt a fic version?

WTF THIS IS AMAZING SOMEONE WRITE THIS AND PUBLISH IT            

Thank you all so, so much for liking my Inferno AU, especially @the-fan-garbage-can for writing out such an incredibly detailed review ;A; Nothing can be more satisfying than people loving my world building, honestly my favorite part of creating, and especially on an original AU like this one because it means you still connected with it. I’m deeply flattered and incredibly humbled, thank you so, so much! It makes me incredibly happy to have shared something that means something to you ;A;

But if at all possible, and you may feel I am selfish for wanting this, but I would sincerely appreciate if people could hold off on writing fics for this particular AU. (simply vaguely inspired by the aesthetic and want to do your own thing inspired by but not set in this AU? Please go right ahead, credit for inspiration would be appreciated)

The reason why I request this is because this is literally just the initial post, testing the waters, a background synopsis and image aesthetic introduction, a prologue if you will to the main show, a comic series I hope to illustrate. I have intentionally and carefully omitted and glossed over many plot-essential details in the synopsis because they will be revealed in the main plot, or are part of a plot twist. Many details included in the synopsis may seem random or unimportant now, but may tie into important things in the actual story. Many things may also intentionally be confusing because they are meant to be shown in visual form (like the Medals). Other massive parts of world building are purely visual and will never be directly acknowledged in writing, but I hope that some people who pay close attention will catch them, and this may have a pretty big impact on how you perceive the AU setting as a whole.

The point is, the entire synopsis text is a very selective snippet of information meant to provide context for my main comics. It does not at all give you the full picture, nor is it meant to, because then what would be the point of the story? ^ ^; I spent a very long time planning this, not only alone but also with a friend, and I present what I do to you now for a reason.

Again, I am incredibly flattered that people feel inspired and want to read more, and I do understand personal preference and perhaps people would prefer a text-only fic where my comic-format story telling may be unsatisfactory. But please understand that it can feel a bit…well, demotivating and pressuring when I know that people are rapidly using my synopsis for their own stories, not because I am offended that it inspires creativity, but because I’ve very carefully planned this out combined with how time consuming comic-drawing can be. I do not want to feel like I am competing with others to tell my plot twists first. So if at all possible, I would like to request that I get to tell my own story first, the story that the post was created for.

If for some reason you do not wish to grant my request, please understand my wanting to not see your posts, not because I am not interested or do not respect your creativity, but because of the reasons I stated above.

Thank you very much for your understanding, and I sincerely hope that you will support and encourage me in finishing this AU. m(_ _)m

anonymous asked:

prompt: ginny counters the release of THE photos with a spread & interview in a magazine (sort of reclaiming her body for herself i guess?). mike admires/loves/is hopelessly attracted to her (nothing new on that front haha)

a/n: so i took the cover shoot inspiration from karla souza’s own gq shoot which quite literally ended me — basically this photoset here. also mike gets gooey with feelings about ginny in this so  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

“You should do a Beyonce.” Evelyn says, glancing up from where she was cooking her famous risotto.

(It’s also Ginny’s go to comfort food of Evelyn’s — needed, after the last few insane weeks. She knew, logically, that her selfies with Trevor were going to be leaked eventually but. Trevor wasn’t the first athlete with a dick pic in the world. Ginny, however, was the first woman in baseball and she got naked with her then-boyfriend. Not exactly the same, stupid as it all was.)

“A what?”

“You know, a Beyonce.” Evelyn shrugged and stirred in a knob of butter. “Reinvention, reclaim.”

“Reclaim what?” Ginny questioned.

“You.” Evelyn cast a glance over her shoulder. “Come on, don’t think I haven’t noticed. Ever since your photos got leaked you’ve been… different. And while it’s totally not your fault and I will use my dying breathe to tell you that… I think you just, need to do something for you. Something that celebrates you. Reinvention, reclaim.”

(Amelia’s all for the idea. Ginny tries to swallow down the apprehension when she sees that troublesome spark in her blonde agent’s eyes.)

Finished my “Black Girls are Magic” drawing set!

I even kind of thought of a background story of all of them going to an all girls magic school where they are the top students of their class and each of them varies in sexuality (the first girl is pan, second girl is bi), body type, skin darkness, and the last girl is trans because trans inclusive feminism is choice. 

But i really had fun with this and my favorite has to be the second to last girl because she just looks awesome, i mean, “i know.” AGH LET ME LIVE

Quick access link

Spoiler-free version here and here

(Episodes are not necessarily in chronological order - just the order in which I think they should be seen so viewers don’t get confused.)

Since my other post with the badly drawn cringe-worthy MS Paint timeline that I haphazardly threw together generated some buzz yesterday, I thought I’d clean it up a bit and post this new version instead. 

(Disclaimer: These are just my interpretation of the episodes, with inspiration from @daughterofthestars08′s original post, and should in no way be taken as the one true chronological order.)

If you have a grievance regarding the placement of Darkblade/Le Chevalier Noir in front of Pixelator/Numeric, you’re probably not the first one to message me about it. Please refer to this post first.

I’ll be updating the list periodically as episodes roll out.

Request: “Can you do a divergent imagine where one of Peter’s fears is loosing you, so during his dauntless initiation, that’s what the simulation portrays? Thanks!”

Your final stimulation went well. You know that you’re not allowed to supervise other initiate’s final stimulation, but you really wanted to see how is Peter going. You love him with all your heart and can barely spend five minutes without him. You silently tiptoed to the door where the stimulation was going. You crept your head slightly above the little narrow door window and saw Peter lying on the chair. You smiled insensibly. Your eyes sticked to the screen when you saw something familiar in it; it was you. Your eyes widened. It showed how some evil guys were beating you, and Peter was being tied up to the pole, forced to watch it. You can’t believe it. Peter’s worst fear is losing you. You knew that he loves you, but now you are really sure of it.

Sandra Bullock Had The Best Reaction To Being Named “World’s Most Beautiful Woman”

“I laughed when they said they were going to be generous and bestow me this wonderful privilege.”

GREAT photoset by Buzzfeed, see the full piece here

From the interview:

“I feel like it’s become open hunting season in how women are attacked, and it’s not because of who we are as people, it’s because of how we look or our age,” Bullock said.

Bullock said she worries about raising her 5-year-old son Louis in a world where woman are so easily picked apart for their imperfections.

“My son is getting ready to grow up in this world and I’m trying to raise a good man who values and appreciates women, and here we have this attack on women in the media that I don’t see a stop happening,” she said.” (Source)

WELL DONE SANDRA - THANKS FOR TAKING A STAND!

mycroftiest  asked:

Where's your header pic from?? Do you have the full pic? :)

this has been frustrating me all afternoon because I looked through my blog and a) I couldn’t find the original post, and b) I found many very, very attractive pictures that made me all hot and bothered (honestly, though, what do you expect when going through tags like these: #i swear i don’t have a hand fetish and #suit porn). There are other photos that belong to this photoset too: (1) (2) (3) (4)

Help with finding the original source/photoset, anyone?
