Family Dinner
  • Mycroft: *whines* Why are we doing this? We never do this.
  • Mummy Holmes: *pouring out the wine* We're celebrating life.
  • Mycroft: *rubbing his forehead* We already knew Molly was fertile, we do not need another celebration (to Sherlock) Or is this because you still boast a healthy sperm count?
  • Sherlock: *glaring at Mycroft*
  • Mummy Holmes: Not at the dinner table, Mike.
  • Sherlock: *leans in to Molly* Remember, this was your idea.
  • Baby Holmes: *tugging Sherlock's shirt* Daddy, can I have some wine?
  • Sherlock: *shrugs* I don't see why- *catches Molly's eye* Sorry, son.
  • Mummy Holmes: *rubs her hands together* Right, I take it you still say grace, Sherlock?
  • Sherlock: *sarcastic* Every day, mother, dearest *tight smile*
  • Mummy Holmes: *rolls her eyes; clasps her hands and bows her head* 'For what we are about to receive, may the Lord make us truly thankful. Amen.'
  • Baby Holmes: Amen.
  • *knives and forks clatter*
  • Baby Holmes: *suddenly; thoughtful* Granny?
  • Mummy Holmes: *smiles sweetly* Yes, angel?
  • Baby Holmes: *prodding his peas* Does God ever listen to people?
  • Mummy Holmes: Of course he does, my dear. He listens to all.
  • Baby Holmes: *confused* Then why doesn't Mummy ever get any more? Is it because she always asks at night time?
  • Molly: *chokes on her wine*
  • Sherlock: *clatters his cutlery*
  • Mummy Holmes: ...
  • Mycroft: *horrified*
  • ...
  • *flat door opens, revealing John, Mary and baby Lizzie*
  • John: Sorry we're late *sees everyone's shocked expressions; confused* What did we miss?
Ladies Forum - 48 hours R.I.P.

Hey Ladies - So apparently someone reported our forum! We’ve been live for less than 48 hours, all invites were sent privately, and someone just thought they’d take away the first place the size community built just for women. I know several other lively size forums whom utilize Proboards, so I’m not sure what about our board triggered a report from someone.  

I contacted Proboards about it, in hopes to get our board back…but if we can’t, I don’t think I’ll be rebuilding this site, at least not this year. I just have way too many projects on my plate, and I can’t…Even before this all happened, I was stressing today because I got so behind this week on my work due to setting up the forum and I’m late again on rent. This was something I really poured my heart into, the feminine banner, unique icons, cute emojis, even coding! But LOL I’m pretty much on the verge of overdraft again because I’m a fucking idiot who wants to be a Leslie Knope, but is really an Andy fucking Dwyer. I’m such a mess, and can’t get my priorities straight - I should have been working!    

Please if you can, spread the word to other women. PLEASE do not message me about the site. I have like a million unread messages now about the site going down and I’m extremely overwhelmed. I’ve been dealing with crippling depression for over a year since my third layoff, and I need to just crawl back into my shell and grieve this lost effort of mine. (((Please also don’t contact me about my self-deprecating comments please - I have Sergio, and I can’t deal with more messages. I’m getting personal because venting helps me destress.)))

Vhiss, Whidos? I honestly can’t think a good reason for Whis and Vados to fuse since they’re already the most powerful beings in their Universes, nevertheless I had a ton of fun picturing this fusion. 

Why do they have 4 arms? Because it looks cool I find their character designs (specially Whis’) similar to some depictions of Visnu and other Indian deities so I was fond of that vibe.

Quick rundown on why ya’ll need to get out of Edward Nygma’s ass:

Shit Edward Nygma did: 

  • Stalked a woman and repeatedly made unwanted advances toward her for over a year. Would NOT back off when told MULTIPLE times by MULTIPLE people. 

  • Felt such possession for her that though he was told to BACK OFF he thought he was well within his right to confront her current boyfriend and stick his nose in their business. 

  • When I say stalked I mean it, he fucking stalked her. He knew EXACTLY where she lived and he knew when to be OUT FRONT OF HER HOUSE when her boyfriend would arrive so he could confront the man.

  • BROUGHT A DEADLY WEAPON TO THIS CONFRONTATION. Knew this confrontation would happen beyond a doubt. He counted on what sort of man Tom was because he already knew. 

  •  Did not show any remorse. Stabbed him multiple times. Did not have any remorse for dying, pleading man, just kept on stabbing him until he was dead. Only concern was getting caught. He felt Tom didn’t deserve Kristen ( which he was right about ) but that he did ( which he was wrong about ). 

  • Calculatedly disposed of the body and provided a ‘cover story’. 

  • Confronted Kristen and expressed disapproval for the men she dated because they were inferior to him as he was smarter than them.  Believes himself to be smarter than most people and during S1 a slightly less unhinged Ed would wait for the right moment to strike. Tom was merely a stupid, unworthy obstacle who gave Ed the perfect excuse to be rid of him. 

  • Kept a trophy of the incident ( Tom’s badge ). Later boasted about to Tom’s then ex girlfriend. 

  • Confidence shot up when he “got away with murder” further proving any anxiety Ed felt was ENTIRELY towards the idea of being caught, not of committing the act. This is actually part of Ed’s Riddler persona, its another way he can get off on “outsmarting” people. This was again explored after he killed Kristen and directly stated by him. 

  • Mirror Ed is a psychical manifestation of he darkness thats always been lurking in Ed; his interactions with mirror Ed are suppose to symbolize Ed embracing it and even coming to enjoy it. “Mirror Ed” objectifies Kristen and even suggests Ed should act abusively towards her because clearly it’ll improve his chances with her ( based on the other men she dates )or so he thinks. Cute victim blaming there, Ed.

    These are Ed’s own thoughts. This is straight up creepy “nice guy”. Eds entire relationship with Kristen was creepy, entitled nice guy. I’ll give ya’ll the fact that this was handled really awkwardly though and has confused people since it began, some even thinking they were trying to portray Ed with MPD in the early days. 

  • Almost all of this occurs when Edward Nygma had been told multiple times that Kristen was not interested and had never showed any interest in being with him romantically from word go. He was unrelenting and constantly looking for a way to get a foot in the door. No risk was too high, including risk to his own life. 

Shit Oswald Cobblepot did 

  • Put a successful hit a girl who existed in Ed’s life for only a week, who Ed expressed he wanted to “break up with” last they spoke about it. 

  • Confronted the girl, tried to ward her off. Failed. Just activated her inner kinkster. 

  • Said girl would not back off when told about the break up and made a mockery of Oswald’s affection in the process. 

  • Did not view Ed as an object but rather a kindred spirit, an equal, who loved and cared about him as strongly as he did about Ed. 

  • Believed he was fighting for his first and only shot at true love. Did a really bad and stupid thing as a result in the hopes it would fix things and put them “back to normal”.

  • Believed Ed loved him because of multiple advances that were read romantically by everyone in the damn universe, only “changing” when a random woman walked into their lives. 

  • Backed off when he realized ( although much too late ) that he had made a big mistake in thinking Ed felt more than friendship for him. Meekly ASKED if they could still be friends regardless, because Ed was his best friend. Showed that he CARED about Ed so much he wouldn’t even risk touch him after it seemed Ed was physically disgusted by his affection. 

    ( Can you imagine how painful it was not only realizing this and the bad things he did to keep Ed who never loved him anyway, but also the fact Ed’s reaction to his confession of love was seen as revulsion. Literally after he spent the week watching Ed suck the face of a girl HE BARELY KNEW AND JUST MET. Can u IMAGINE how DISGUSTING, stupid and inferior Oswald must have felt within himself? ) 

In conclusion: Ed needs to examine his hypocritical bullshit before he goes anywhere near Oswald. I hate Tom, he was a woman bashing sack of shit and I love Ed even with all the creepy bits, but hes not a gold turd. Hes just a plain turd. He doesn’t deserve to be elevated above Oswald by either the fandom or the god damn canon. Real tired of ya’ll stretching to defend the straight boy who’s being a right horses ass cause all this contorting to excuse Ed is just playing right into the HOMOPHOBIA. You all need to examine exactly why it is you feel the need let Ed off on this when he gets called on it. You’re not being an intellectual or a better fan. You’re not doing anything but looking like every other homophobic fuck wit desperate to defend entitled straight boys when they bone up, especially vs a gay guy who’s boned up in a similar, MUCH LESS NASTY AND ENTITLED, way. 

Liberal feminists on the burqini ban (rightly so): The burqini ban is bad! A woman should be allowed to cover herself as much as she wants or reveal as much as she wants! Forcibly making someone remove their clothing in public is sexual harassment!

Liberal feminists on enforced hijab on female chess competitors in Iran: *crickets* Uh… when in Rome do as the Romans do… it’s just showing respect for their culture… Uh… Islam is a beautiful religion?

  • My mother: What's wrong with being a girl?
  • Me, a closeted trans male: ... Periods..?
  • My mother: that's cause boys are whiny babies. Only girls can handle it.
  • Me: (silence)
  • My mother: you're not gonna be one of those strange people right?
  • Me: what??? What does that mean???
  • My mother: you're gonna live your life as a girl right? A woman?
  • Me: (silence)
  • My mother (snippy tone here): you were born that way
  • Me, in my head: this is why I don't talk to you about my life. I'm not your daughter, she's dead. I've been trans for over a year now so you can fuck off.
  • Me: (silence)
sterek.

I want an all-human AU where Stiles’s parents are divorced and his mom (not Claudia, some other meaner woman) sends him off to boarding school in Georgia or something, where he meets Scott as his roommate. The fic starts out with Stiles being miserable at this no-nonsense behavior school, and the other kids are assholes who decide to make him and asthmatic Scott their punching bag, so Stiles makes a plan to escape and find his dad in New York. Scott wants to join but knows he’d slow Stiles down with his condition, so he gives Stiles his small stash of savings and tells him to “make me proud and break out of here, dude. Pay me back when you find your dad.”

So BAM Stiles manages to escape via awesome cunning plan and he’s dashing down the wintery streets to the train station (he was sent to boarding school for a reason so he’s super badass and mischievous and uses this to his advantage to travel distance) BUT THEN after obstacles (being forced to jump train, wander on foot, eventually jumped and robbed by a gang) he runs out of money in Vermont.

So he’s stumbling down the street all tired and dirty and he uses his last five dollars to order a burger at some 24-hour diner at three in the morning. He savors it, tries to ignore the way that hot-but-creepy waiter guy is eyeing him distastefully (he hasn’t showered since like, that gym in North Carolina), and eventually decides that he’s going to steal from the register on his way out (and then just pay the diner back someday. Probably).

And so…
