  • The8: *speaking Mandarin in a very "standard" radio-like tone* Time flies, in a blink of an eye, it's already been two years. In these two years, we've especially gone through a lot of things; hopefully you will continue to walk this road together, and grow with us. Lastly, I hope you will sleep soundly tonight. Good night.
  • Jun: *imitating his tone in Mandarin* All right, why are you making your voice like this?

I thought I was smart when I was 16, but I don’t know shit compared to the 16-year-old girls that I see coming to my concerts. They talk to me about issues of social justice, and they know about intersectional feminism, they can tell you the difference between someone who is non-binary and agender and genderfluid. I didn’t know any of that when I was 16.

Don’t Stop Us Now

@softkent ‘s 14 Days of Love fic-a-thon, day 6: ruined surprises!

It all started because Katya decided to have mercy on Eric and let him take morning classes this semester. WGSS120 was an amazing class, Professor Atley had the coolest stories about how postwar industrialization led to compulsive female domesticity, and his seatmate wasn’t the worst thing to see at 9:30 AM every Tuesday and Thursday. He would have almost been dreamy if he had the slightest knack for small talk. As it was, Eric didn’t even have a name to go on, just intent blue eyes and an ass that even the baggiest of shorts couldn’t mask.

One day, Eric decided to drop a hospitality bomb on the guy and see if he could coax a response out of him. They were both consistently early to class, so Eric budgeted ten minutes for a brief chat before class started and turned to Cute Guy with a winning smile on his face.

“So how about that reading, huh? I thought it was fascinating how cake mix became a prestige thing- everyone in my family bakes, and I don’t think we’ve used a box mix in forty years.”

“Yeah,” the guy said, “I think it had something to do with the scientific advancements they made in food preservation for the troops. Shelf stabilization wouldn’t have been nearly as achievable in earlier years.”

Miraculously, once you got onto a clear subject, Cute Guy was actually a decent conversationalist. Eric found himself losing track of time as they dissected last night’s chapters of Marling.

“And the American National Exhibition anecdote!” he giggled. “Who can even tell the difference between Russian and American Coke?”

“I bet it’s easier with all of the Soviet Union breathing down your back. ‘Da, cola of Mother Russia is vkusno!’”

“Nice accent,” Eric told Cute Guy.

“Really? Thanks, I’ll have to tell Geno. He’s always knocking my Russian. He’s, uh, a friend of my dad’s, and we both play hockey.”

“So that’s what your weird doodles are? Hockey plays?”

“Yeah, I’m captain of the hockey team here. We’re not half bad, if I say so myself.”

“Wow,” Eric enthused, “you must be a pretty good skater, then.”

“Yeah, I guess. I could teach you sometime, if you want. I’m Jack, by the way,’ Cute Guy said.

height difference

Okay but I imagine Jack being taller than Ralph and always putting everything on the highest shelves just to mess with him. Like whenever they get into a fight Jack will put everything on the top shelf just to be annoying. Then Jack watches Ralph struggle for hours trying to get whatever it is down. This goes on for hours because Ralph doesn’t want to ask for help and Jack just loves watching Ralph struggle too much to help. 

Some Thoughts About Race in the SJM Universe

Obviously everyone knows the shitstorm that is going on over SJM characters in both ACOTAR and TOG.

(Frankly, I haven’t read TOG in depth so I can’t really speak for it as well, but I’m going to try)

Let me just preface this by saying three things:

First and foremost, I am a woman of color and a goddamn feminist. I know the importance of POC in mainstream media. It is not my intention to overlook or look down on issues regarding POC representation.

Secondly, I am not a visual reader (as some people may recall from my Tamlin the Yeti post). I don’t visualize characters as being of any race; that’s why I depend heavily on fanart. To me, characters are blobs of characteristics that just happen to have names.

Finally, think about the universe that ACOTAR and TOG are set in. Sarah has created such a definitive world of people who are obviously of different ethnicities. And as a writer, I can tell you that for me at least, race is the last thing on my mind when I build my characters. (Which probably has something to do with my characteristic blobs, but whatever.) Yes, it’s a current issue. Yes, our society has been predominantly white for too long. But for many people, physiognomy comes last..

There are two main race issues I’ve seen on Tumblr:

1) whitewashed fanart and fancasts

2) killing of POCs to further the adventure of the white characters

To #1: There is no excuse for this, really. But I’m 99.99999999% sure that artists will politely recognize their whitewashed art as a mistake and fix it. No need to get pissy all the goddamn time for what could be fixed in one PM.

To #2:: Strap yourselves in, because this is going to be a long, aggressive rant.

Is this an issue? Yes. Should you keep screaming bloody murder at Sarah for it 24/7? No.

And I’ll explain why.

This is a societal problem. It’s no secret that POC are hired in the TV industry as minor characters. Cab driver, IT person, receptionist. This is a mainstream issue. It’s one we need to fix.

But unlike those bitches in the TV industry, I don’t fully believe that Sarah meant to sideline POC, at least not in the TOG universe. Yes, everyone who died was a POC. Yes, that’s weird. But I also don’t fully believe Sarah constructed that world with the idea of killing off all the POC characters to further the journey of the white protagonist.

If anything, it shows that there is an abundance of all-white main casts.

SJM didn’t do that for ACOTAR. The Illyrians are canonically POC—they are tan. Not just suntan. Their skin is not white. Sarah has said herself that Rhys is not “pasty white.” At least four out of the seven courts of Prythian have leaders that are POC (Night, Day, Dawn, Summer). Feysand is an interracial couple. Nessian is an interracial couple. And I believe Drakon is a POC as well (and maybe Miryam)??

So yes. There are race issues. But they’re not ones we haven’t seen before. YA lit is filled with them. That doesn’t mean it’s right, but stop attacking Sarah from problems that are broadly present across the industry. There are plenty of bigger issues with bigger authors that no one seems to care about. I didn’t hear anyone complaining when books like Fangirl or The Fault in Our Stars featured all-white (or almost all-white) casts.

Stop hating on Sarah when she’s given us worlds where people are actually repsented.This is not an issue she fucking created. Stop acting like it is.

(dont reblog) honest q:

Is the concept of a blog that is deliberately small/private/secluded, but not password-protected, familiar?

Examples of what this might look like under the cut. Leave a quick answer in the replies or somewhere private if uncomfortable.

- If YES, maybe guess how many people (incl. yourself) you know that do this.
- I also need NO’s if you have them.

Actual Director of Magical Security Percival Graves is going to be able to get away with anything, literally forever, with everyone else in MACUSA

“Graves, your paperwork’s piling up.”

“Is it? I’m trying to work through the backlog that Grindelwald left. You know, when he stole my life, here, and worked with all of you. For months.”

“Graves, Goldstein is out of line again.”

“That’s funny. I could have sworn I’d given her a commendation. Oh well. Maybe it was Grindelwald. Who can tell the difference, right?”

“Hey, sir, uh, Picquery wants to make sure you’re briefed properly for the meeting.”

“Hey, remember when I was Grindelwald and no one noticed? Fuck you, Abernathy.”
