*late one evening in the Malfoy library. Draco, Blaise, Harry and Ron sitting in front of the fire*
So how is she?
More tired these days, it's to be expected, but she is doing well.
Best to let her get as much rest as possible now, because once the baby is here she won't be sleeping much. *chuckles*
Oh you have no idea, she won't even let me hire a nanny to help out! Something about not wanting another woman raising her child.
Maybe you can temporarily hire a house elf to assist her with the care? Not as a nanny, but just someone to be there and give her a hand when you aren't around.
Heck I'm sure one of the elves you already have has experience with babies, and could help.
Hmm...that's not a bad idea, she might go for it.
So, why are we drinking in the library tonight? We normally play cards in the den for our guys night.
Because of Hermione.
What's wrong? You just said she was fine!
*rolls eyes* Oh she is. *chuckles*. You'll see *glances at watch*, in 3...2...1, now. *Looks at door*
*Door opens, a sleepy pregnant Hermione walks in with her nice round belly, wearing her maternity house robe. Draco instantly hands his drink to Blaise and goes to her*
*kisses her forehead* Hello love, feeling better? *Hermione smiles and nods*
Sorry 'Mione did we wake you?
*yawns, rubbing the sleep from her eyes* Hey guys. No, don't worry it's not that. It's just- *looks to wall of books, bites lower lip*
Which do you crave tonight?
*at Ron and Harry's look of confusion* Hermione doesn't seem to get food cravings...*Draco and Hermione walk off to the shelves*...she has Book Cravings. *stifles laugh*
You know...that makes a lot of sense.
*Draco and Hermione return with a book, and lounge on the chaise. Hermione leaning back into Draco's arms, opens her book and begins reading. Draco puts one arm around to rest on her swollen belly, and the other reaches to accept his drink back from Blaise*
*kisses the top of her head, and smiles to the group* And this, gentlemen, is why we are now having guys night in the library.
Yoongi, Jimin and Taehyung react to: finding out their girlfriend is a lingerie model.

Dollhouse. Dollhouse is so damn good and so many actors do such amazing work on it but nobody seems to ever talk about it.
Dichen Lachman gives a ton of flawless performances (I say a ton because she basically plays several parts)
As does Enver Gjokaj.
Amy Acker, who is amazing in everything I’ve ever seen her in, has what is perhaps my favorite role of hers here.
Fran Kranz became one of my favorite male actors with this show and Cabin In the Woods. He plays a “sociopath in a sweater vest” and oh does he ever do it well.
Olivia Williams plays the head of the LA Dollhouse, and is she EVER a force to be reckoned with.
You may have noticed that I haven’t talked about Eliza Dushku, the lead. Now I LOVE Eliza Dushku. I’m more than a little bit obsessed with Faith Lehane. But she is not the high point of this show. If only because the other actors are SO DAMN GOOD.
Things you should know before getting into this show:
It starts slowly. FOX wanted them to make the first several episodes pilots, so you go over the same things over and over. By the time you get to episode 6 things really start moving.
For the second season, they knew they were going to be cancelled, so they shoved several seasons of material into one. The result is a wild, wild ride.
I’d put a trigger warning for rape on the whole show.
i don't like musicals... aren't they a bit... yknow...
*flames flicker in my eyes* Are we gonna have a problem? you got a bone to pick? you've come so far, why now are you pulling on my dick? i'd normally slap your face off, and everyone here could watch... but i'm feeling nice so here's some advice, listEN UP BIATCH
First reading/watching magi:
Lol this looks fun. Weird blue kid and a blue giant? Okay???
THIS ISN'T FUN ANYMORE! YOU LIE WITH YOUR BRIGHT COLORS AND PROMISES OF ADVENTURE! IT'S JUST SADNESS AND PAIN BEHIND A SUNNY MASK! WHY AM I SO ATTACHED TO THESE CHARACTERS AND WHY DO THEY HAVE TO GO THROUGH SUCH PAINFUL THINGS ALL THE DAMN TIME?!NO! GIMMIE THEM! YOU AREN'T TREATING THEM NICELY! THIS IS WHY I HAVE TRUST ISSUES. IT JUST GETS WORSE.

Uh oh! The yandere 2p axis's love interest just found their collection of creepy photos of them! And oh boy is she pisses. How do they react?
Luciano: “I was just keeping an eye on you to make sure you’re safe!’ Tries to play it off, and honestly, it almost works. He may even talk himself into getting off on an apology. If it doesn't work then he will knock them out. He just got you earlier than he thought he would. Oh well.
Kuro: *Sigh“Why can’t you just mind your own business and not go snooping around?” This guy knows that even if he convinces you otherwise, this will still linger in the back of your mind. Things go from zero to 100 real quick. You aren't leaving that house ever again.
Lutz: “I don’t know why you’re freaking out, it’s normal, I'm just watching out for you.” Has already convinced himself that his actions and feelings towards you are normal. It scares him when you react angrily. Apologises and kisses up to you. Whether or not you get kidnapped that day is up to your response to his apology.
Flavio: “I’m sorry, you just looked so beautiful I had to capture the moment for inspiration in the future!” Let’s be honest, he’s probably gotten you to model for him by now. He tries to play it off. Gaslighting out the yahoo, convinces you that you agreed to pose for him or that they were meant well.
Gillen: “I-ah, I’m sorry! Please, don’t hate me!” This is pretty much the end of the line in this situation. He pretty much lays all the cards on the table, and assuming you react like a normal human being, you freak out, which makes him snap and you get kidnapped along with a nasty bruise.
Betty watching archie and Veronica together Jughead: aren't they cute betty? Betty: yea.. Jughead's smile vanished, he whispers to her: I thought you said you're over him Betty: I meant what I said. Jughead: so? Why are you upset now Betty answered him after trying to hide her tears for a moment by looking at yellow flower she was holding the whole time: someone once told me "most of the time, the people we like don't like us back"
I feel proud but sad. I've finally got myself to see how invalid most if not all of the aphobics arguments. But the sad part is because of really wtf arguments I've heard recently by multiple headstrong ones: Closeted folks do not face systematic oppression and are not LGBT. And I've seen: Trans people who say down with cis or hate on cis folks aren't actually trans and are faking to just be special snowflakes. I am pretty past their bull now, but wow some have done a turn.
You know, I think the most profound thing I’ve learned from watching the various intracommunity discourses over the last decadeish has been just how incredibly damaging a single piece of bad logic can be, and how many more terrible terrible beliefs can snowball out of a commitment to just one idea. That’s really, I think, where so much of this comes from and why people on the exclusionist side all tend to eventually adopt such a startlingly similar set of biases and hatreds, even if they didn’t start out that way. Just one bad belief will lead to another and another and another, as long as you’re holding true to the bad foundational logic that got you to the first one.
And that’s been an important learning experience for me personally, because I had the misfortune of coming up to some extent through radfem circles, because some of their beliefs spoke to the scared, hurt teenager I was at the time, and I spent a long while trying to convince myself that I could have some of their beliefs and ignore the ones I found distasteful.
But that’s not how it works, because every single one of those beliefs was ultimately based on the same Bad Logic, so even the ones that I agreed with on the surface were poisonous at the core, and ultimately unsustainable. It took me a long time to deprogram myself and start seeing the toxin that pervaded everything in that community.
And that’s the same toxin that’s now spreading through every single part of REG communities and leading them all to continue to adopt increasingly more hateful [and, let’s be real, TERFier] beliefs. The roots are poisoned, and that means every branch is going to be too. I don’t know how to convince people to open their eyes and start seeing that, but I do know that pretty much every person I’ve ever seen who switched sides after being an exclusionist went through a similar process of realisation.
Hey Capricorn, I'm going to watch Tokyo Ghoul have you seen it? Gemini said It's really good.
Yeah I've seen it.
Oh nice! BUT DON'T GIVE SPOILERS OK?
Well, I don't care. I have a lot of stuff to take care of anyway.
That's... Kinda rude you know?
I'll order pizza for you.
Omg you're the best I love you so much an-
You should probably start watching.
Oh right! *puts on headphones*
*picks up the phone* Sup, Cappy! Or should I say Capricorn-on-the-cob~
Cut out the bullshit and tell me why the the fuck did you tell Cancer to watch Tokyo Ghoul.
Oooh, a little savage aren't we? Relax, I just wanted to see how much she'll cry when Hide di-
First of all, Hide did NOT die. He's sleeping. And secondly, you are a fucking irresponsible bastard who messes with peoples lives without thinking about the consequences. Get your shit together or I'll have to do it for you. Now never. NEVER. Tell Cancer to do something emotionally draining again or I'll have to end up slicing your tongue and stitching your lips together using your hair. Got it?
Yikes! Have you been spending too much time with Scorpio lately? Besides when did you start caring for her anyway? Didn't you say that she was annoying, moody and manipulative earlier?? You're like polar opposites as well. Hehee so you DO have emotions don't you~?
I will make you drink bleach if you keep on talking.
Awww how cuuute, Miss Caps Lock is tryna look badass and tough to hide her inner marshmallow~
I swEAR TO FUCKIN GOD ONCE I GET MY HAND ON Y-
*hears loud crying from the other room*
Have you seen a video called "VidMe or Why Platforms Aren't Your Friends" by the yt channel "Folding Ideas"? I'm watching it now and, even though I know its a different situation, it's making me think of the relationship between your future site, Tumblr, and content creators in some different ways. I'd like to know your opinion on it, if you have time to watch it!
I actually watched it when it first came out! I’m a fan of that channel (although it can be a little hit or miss for me). Let me re-watch it so I can get a better feel for it!
Okay, with my memory jogged, I’m ready to tackle this.
A lot of the concerns within the video revolve around videos, which come with their own unique issues (and YouTube as both a website and a community)*. However, the issues with VidMe that are brought up are very similar to most of the “Tumblr Alternatives” that have cropped up and then either failed or quietly vanished into the night.
That is to say: they never really had a plan beyond “I’m going to remake that site!”
Tumblr Alternatives have a different set of problems: features and funding. Every Tumblr Alternative promises a blacklist right away, and then typically pads out a thorough description of the features that Tumblr has. Most people who want a blacklist use Xkit, so while a blacklist intrigues them, it isn’t likely to keep them hooked (much less convince them to leave). Then, these Tumblr Alternatives choose an absolute minimum amount of funding (far below what people would pay to even setup a small website) and offer fairly weak methods of keeping profits rolling. Hosting isn’t cheap unless you severely restrict file sizes and tightly control who is coming in, and if you’re relying on ad revenue, you’re looking at a very small income.
This isn’t exactly amazing, so unless you strongly encourage users to click on ads (and really, how many people do that?), that’s not going to bring in much revenue unless you are whitelisting ads, wherein advertisers need to pay you in order to host their ad at a flat rate. Even then, you’re not looking at a lot of income from that.
Subscriptions are a potential revenue bringer, but the rewards need to be enticing without making your site feel “pay 2 win”. Some Tumblr Alternatives have suggested a subscription model that made it feel thoroughly unplanned: you could buy a subscription, and then make a bunch of extra blogs and immediately cancel your subscription, letting you keep all of them. That sort of system is easily abused and, again, unlikely to generate much revenue.
Donation drives are enticing because they’re seen on sites like Reddit and AO3, but both of those sites host text and very, very few images. Text is dirt cheap to host. Adult-Fanfiction, a site which has been around for 15 years now and has aggregated countless fics has a monthly donation drive of $350: an amount that it struggles to meet on a good month.
A social network, once it takes off, is looking at thousands of dollars in hosting costs at first (with this always steadily climbing). Without proper planning on how to earn revenue, it’ll fail.
Now, the reason why Tumblr has so many odd choices that seem to force more ads likely comes from a lot of investors, shareholders, and advertisers having a hand in the site. We’re a small-fry, so, we don’t have any of that. In fact, that was why we skipped over angel investors. With the proper investors, we could have likely secured hundreds of thousands of dollars…but it would have come with caveats. Expectations of how to package our users to be sold for a profit.
So, with all of that in mind, what are we bringing to the table?
Well, a lot, really.
We approached this not thinking so much about recreating “Tumblr, only safer”, but instead about making a site that appealed more to creators who are floating around on social networks that don’t quite fit their needs. However, creators need audiences, so you need features that non-creators like. Blacklisting, obviously, but what about user groups? Forums? Sideblogs (pseudonyms) that don’t have stripped down functionality? We tinkered around with a lot of ideas, but the real, true foundation beyond all of those, beyond even the tipping feature, is the moderation system.
People want to be heard. They want to be listened to. They don’t want Jim P. to be answering their ticket with a copy-pasted response, they want someone to take in the nuance of their issue and help them resolve it. They don’t care if it takes a little longer, they want to feel helped.
They want to feel that they can use a site without being judged or attacked, and they want to feel confident that when they go to the site for help, they’ll actually get help. They want to browse content without feeling as though they might have to fight in order to enjoy it. They want to have fun.
So that’s where we are. We’ve been reacting to people and keeping ourselves as accessible as is reasonable. We have plans for financing, and plans for content creators. We have plans for non-content creators.
But honestly? The one key thing here is how different YouTube is from Tumblr.
It’s an entirely different audience that’s being driven away here for an entirely different reason.
Anyway, I hope that answered things in a satisfying way! Whew, this got longer than I thought it’d be!
*(VidMe’s problems are compounded on the fact that they’re trying to be a video hosting site, something which is nightmarish to setup and even worse to maintain based on costs alone, while also trying to compete with YouTube, a monolith owned by Google. The people being driven off of YouTube usually end up on Twitch (gamers) or end up being people creating generally off-putting content (like what’s described in the video). As such, VidMe is trying to court everyone but is likely only attracting people who were driven off of YouTube. Not exactly an appealing site to visit!)
Hey! I've been following this blog for awhile now and I love it! I love the analysis and theories you post here, I agree with a lot of them. :D Including what you say about Tom and Jackie and how they're treated by the fandom. -_- I honestly don't know why Starco shippers continue to act like such children(even if some of them are). I'm pretty neutral when it comes to Jarco they aren't my favorite(Tomco FTW!), but come on Jackie is adorable and she treats Marco well! And Tom needs more love!
Awwww, thank you!!!!
I’m doing my best ^^;
((Watch as s3 proves all of my theories wrong just to mess with me))
The fandom can definitely bash a lot when it comes to characters and ships but in my experience, Tom and Jackie get it the worst.
Now with Tom, i might be able to understand where it comes from, since he’s a flawed character and he’s done bad things. I love Tom, I like the idea behind him, I’m fascinated by his choices and how complex his emotions are, and I ADORE his design. But i could see how someone might not enjoy him very much because of the bad things he’s done.
((If i am right about his home life though, that might change people’s minds about him in the future.))
Based on my own views, I see him as a flawed teen, he’s desperate for attention….desperate to rekindle and have a close relationship again, and desperate to look good in people’s eyes so much he’s willing to change everything about him. So when people paint him as being this horrible, abusive, person….i can’t buy it, Tom is clearly willing to makes sacrifices for people he cares about, and it clearly pains him to hurt people.
Yeah, he’s made threats, kidnapped Marco, but he hasn’t really hurt anyone…who knows if he’d even go through with them.
If you aren’t big on Tom, it’s ok, he’s not perfect. But abusive is way too far with a character that they’re clearly trying to make sympathetic, and it doesn’t even fit logically with his character or the story all that well either.
Tom being portrayed in these ways feel like they’re trying to paint him worse then his character is supposed to be. He’s screwed up, but it’s not really in his character to hurt Star or Marco intentionally.
Lucky for Tom, his character has improved more from s2, and he’s had less fandom issues then he used to.
Jackie, has also improved much from s2 considering she really didn’t have much to go on in s1.
But as far as characters go, she has it much worse then Tom.
And it sucks worse, because her hate isn’t even really justified. Ok, maybe you might find her bland, or not very interesting, but the fandom makes it sound like she murdered Star and took over the world.
There’s really no reason to be angry with her, she hasn’t offended anyone, hurt anyone, she’s so far the most innocent character on this show.
If you’re going to flat out bash her in front of me saying how she’s a horrible person, then i’m sorry, i can’t take you seriously as a person because she’s done nothing to get angry about.
Yeah, i think she needs more screen time and her character could use some development but she’s not worth getting so upset about.
Tom wasn’t given too much character considering he’s been in few eps, but a lot is implied and it makes it easier to figure out his character and what might be happening with him, Jackie hasn’t really had nearly as much focus in order for us to understand her…but that’s not her fault.
I could make a LIST of the dumbest things i’ve heard come out of Sta//rco shipper mouths and most of them would involve her, and all the excuses made to justify all her bashing.
She hurt Star!!! Literally no one knew about Star’s crush, at all.
She Stole Marco!! She and Marco both willingly wanted to date each other. Not to mention Marco was never Star’s in the first place.
And you know well if these same people were in Marco or JACKIE’s position, they would not be feeling the same way about this situation. They wouldn’t wish death upon jackie, they wouldn’t be telling marco he should be with someone else.
Because you know, it’s not ok at all.
Jackie is honestly a sweetheart, I love how much she supports Marco and isn’t fazed by all his weird insecurities. The show really has been taking their relationship seriously and wants you to support them and i’m glad they’re not making jackie evil or making their relationship bad for the purpose of Sta//rco.
Jackie better not be thrown under the bus next season,and definitely not because of Sta//rco, if she and marco break up i want it to be handled maturely and i want it to be because of their relationship…not Star.
She deserves better then that.
If Ja//rco remained canon, i would be perfectly fine with it.
Protect these two at all costs, they deserve so much more.
i thought atomic blonde was pretty good! why aren't you seeing it?
i am a tired queer who knows my limits and if i were to walk into a movie theatre sit down and watch a queer woman be murdered on a giant screen i would burst into tears, crawl out, curl up into a little ball by the popcorn stand and sob my pretty lesbian eyes out
So I've been trying to get one of my friends back into the Naruto fandom, because they stopped watching/reading in 2012. However, he keeps saying he can't get into it because SS and NH are canon now. He says in theory he's okay with those pairings, but thinks SS is an abusive relationship and hates that. I'm not really that great at debating and was wondering if you had any good points that aren't too spoiler heavy to reveal why SS isn't abusive. If not, that's cool too. Cheers!
Ask him to look up the definition of physical and emotional abuse within relationships, and then ask him to see if they can actually be applied to Sasuke and Sakura’s relationship, especially considering the situation that they were in.

(overheard, unintentional) prompt: “You know those pianos they put in airports?
So I was waiting for my flight, and this one guy was playing a really sad tune.
And suddenly, this other guy walks up with a violin, all smiles and good cheer,
and starts accompanying him? He seemed
so into it, but the piano guy just glared at him and stormed off. I thought the
violinist would keep playing, but he seemed so sad, and he went after the
pianist instead. I dunno if they knew each other.” Thank you, random citizen.
A focus on
Mikasa and Izzy bonding over having silly sort-of-brothers and overall being
the cool sisters they are, musician Ereris, airports are awesome.
