why did it have to be this way

Hey! First, I love what you do; Sparrow Hill Road is stunningly beautiful and the world of Every Heart has consumed my dreams. I have a question: you have a trans character in Every Heart (who I love very much by the way) who is never called "trans". Why did you fill his identity with descriptors instead of simply calling it what it is? This isn't a judgement--I just want to know why. Thanks you!

Because that isn’t the way Kade would describe himself or his situation at that moment in time.  He doesn’t have a lot of the language that we use today: he discovered his truth while he was in a world full of people he thought were his friends who turned out to be transphobic assholes with the power to take absolutely everything away from him, and now he’s very careful with his words and his absolute statements.  Because the Wayward Children books have a very fairy tale feel in their language choices, absolute statements of identity (like Nancy saying “I am asexual”) or clinical terms of sexuality (like Sumi saying “Is it going to be a problem if I masturbate?”) are left for dialog, which means they are defined by what the characters would or would not say.

Okay so going of of what I sad, what if Anti and jack are actually friends? The reasons why Anti's doing all the things he's doing is bc he lives off of attention. Well, what better way to get attention than to have millions of fans theorized and obsess over you? Since Jack and Anti are friends (I like to imagine that Anti was Jack's "imaginary" friend when he was a kid) Jack thought, "Hey, what if you appeared in some of my videos? It'll help you live better." And so he did (part 1/?)

Okay so you know how in the October video Anti slit Jack’s throat? What if that wasn’t planned? What if Anti got too greedy with all the attention and wanted Jack out of the way, completely destroying their friendship? Jack, who Anti can never actually kill, wakes up later pissed to all hell about it, decides to get Anti back by shoving him away in a deep, dark place. Whiich only pisses off Anti more, resulting in the PAX video. See, Anti could still feel all the love and adoration his fans gave him. Which is why he was able to escape and he slit Jack’s throat again before reanimating him long enough to give us viewers a message

i’m losing my goddamn mind what if that’s what happened fuCK

leela when you've watched the ls i need your voice of reason lmao. i kind of got the impression they were trying to drop hints that it's not a permanent move and i'm wondering if that means they'll get separate places eventually. but on the other hand, they said things like "when a house is bought" which could have easily been phrased differently, but in that way (imo) implied together-ness, same as "this is not a forever home" or accepting the "congratulations you two" message. i'm confused!

i’m sorry if this is overly blunt but there wasn’t a single thing in this live show that suggested to me that dan and phil even know how to conceptualize a future that doesn’t include each other, at least at this point in their lives. they did make it sound like the move is a transitional one in some respects but they explained why–bc they wanted to get out of that apartment as soon as their lives had settled (after their tours were over) and bc eventually they want even more space. they want to buy a property. they want a house. what about that suggests that they want those things individually and not together? you even listed a fair few of the moments that solidified that togetherness for me all over again, so i really was not left with any sort of feeling that they are moving towards a future separation

as a true crime fan, what's so special about dahmer? he wasn't charming (partially thanks to his raging alcoholism), and he wasn't exactly clever when evading the police. fucker put dead bodies out with the trash, and was stopped by police with a corpse in his trunk at 3am-- he just got lucky. like, if they were a horrible enough person, anybody could do what he did. i love murders and disappearances but don't get why he's such a big honking deal to y'all.

hello! ok so the people here def have different opinions on what is so special to them about jeff’s case. (feel free to add on to this list guys!)

some people do find him charming. i mean–he kinda is in his own way. like when he says shit like this:  

Originally posted by jeffrey-is-a-babe

sure he was no bundy when it came to natural charm. he was waaaay too awkward and cringy but hey, that kinda adds to his unusual charm. 

as far as evading the police went, sure it didnt help that the Milwaukee police were homophobic, racist, xenophobic, sexist, and just downright stupid, but jeff was able to charm his way out of capture MULTIPLE TIMES. the first when he was pulled over w/ steven hicks body in the trunk (you gotta have some cool to not to totally freak the fuck out in that moment), when homicide detectives knocked on his door after a neighbor of his was murdered, and when Konerak Sinthasomphone escaped from his apt. He was able to convince police to give the boy back to him. I do agree that he was E X T R E M E L Y lucky. but his psychopathic charm def helped. 

some people also find him to be very attractive. I mean he aint ugly here at all: 

some people are genuinely interested in the psychology of his case. (I fall into this category). One of the things that intrigues me, is how could he have become the killer we know so well now? His childhood seemed to be almost excruciatingly normal at the surface. But dig a little deeper, and you start to find the little clues that could have been unwittingly creating a monster. Here’s a great post by @irishcreamandhalcion about Jeff’s mom Joyce. (x)  I personally believe that by looking at Joyce’s life, you can really start to understand why Jeff became the way he was. He could be the poster child for abnormal psychology. thats def one of the reasons I’m mad that he was murdered, we could’ve learned so much from him. it’s such a waste. 

plus his story is so compelling, heart-wrenching, complex, and amazing. it hasn’t gotten old for me yet. but everyone has the cases they love over others. 

  • Fugitoid: I don’t understand why you wasted another night on a quest no one’s ever going to solve.
  • Donnie: Professor, I am way too sleep-deprived to deal with your negativity right now. Let me show you what I did. I started off by making a map of all of the conflicts that have gone down in the Universe since five thousand years ago to see if there was a pattern. That led me to this.
  • [turns on a map of the Galaxy where almost all of it is covered in red dots to indicates battles]
  • Donnie: There is so much war in Universe. No one should live here.

Konekomaru: He will mostly just have this gentle smile on his face that makes you feel warm. He appreciates it a lot but also lets you know that he feels the same way about you. 

Ryuji: This is the way to his heart. Especially the massages, rub his temples gently when he’s starting to have a migraine and he’ll be a goner. Though, expect him to interrogate him as to why he deserves it. Prepare a powerpoint presentation, tbh.

Yukio: He really likes it but he’s hesitant to let himself allow it. He’s pretty distant so how on earth did you manage to like him so much to be this affectionate. He’s actually just scared to let you in, and enjoy all of it in fear of having to cope without it when you’re gone.

13 Reasons Why

I just finished the last episode of 13 Reasons Why, and since a bunch of you were asking my opinion of the show, I figured I’d talk a little bit about it.  This should be obvious, but beware! spoilers abound under the cut.

I think Clarke only wants to become Heda to be reunited with Lexa. If taking the chip made her Commander but did not hold Lexa's spirit she wouldn't have wanted it. Clarke looks suicidal in most scene's, Lexa is brought up in every episode, she was the glue that held everything together and Clarke wants her back, even if it can only be this way.

I guess that is part of why she wants it as well, besides trying to use the power of the commander to avoid bloodshed which was something that only Lexa was able to do with her coalition. Still, it is kinda messy that Klork could take control of people’s lives on the ground when she is nothing but a foreigner of their culture and traditions. It really bothers me that aspect.

Also even tho this leaves the open door for a S5 clexa “reunion” cos let’s be real Lexa is pretty much burned and buried in that crapfest these fuckers might use that leverage to bait an already hurt fanbase. I really don’t wanna see ppl being lied to again. W Klork being a nightblood she can take the AI for sure.

Serious post

Firstly, I hate how some people on tumblr think this fucking website is a competition. I mean, WE DON’T EVEN GET MONEY FOR THIS, IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN???

2 - I also hate how people act as if they owned book quotes, photographies, etc, when in fact YOU DON’T HAVE A FUCKING RIGHT ON THAT SHIT, BY THE WAY, THE OWNER COULD SUE YOU FOR USING THEIR INTELLECTUAL WORK IF THEY WANTED :D So why the fuck you care so much if a person posts the same book quote than you or other blog?? Everybody is free to buy the book and post a quote if they want, you DON’T FUCKING OWN THE BOOK, DID YOU GET IT??? 

3 - If you don’t like a blog, block them???? It’s ridiculous needling someone in posts, like how old are you?? 8 years old?? Get a life, get a job, go study, go have sex, go smoke pot, idk, but this is SILLY.

History repeats itself

I think either mama or papa Cooper or both killed Jason Blossom. They strongly disapproves of Polly and Jason’s relationship and remember when papa Cooper said he’d protect his daughter at all cost or something? Okay so probably to the point where they killed Jason. Now, let’s head on. Do you notice how much of a hindrance is Alice and Hal (mostly Alice, I guess) to Bughead? I mean, she did mentioned one time that Jughead was just like Jason same as to Archie (wherein she busted GrundyxArchie by the help of Betty’s diary). And now, I’m more confused because why would mama Cooper want to be involved in the Blue and Gold’s (Bughead administration, hehe) investigation with Jason Blossom’s death? doesn’t she hated Jason? is this her way of breaking Bughead up?— framing FP Jones (Jughead’s dad) for Jason’s death by having meticulous statements thinking it would go well and that she was right about Jughead not being good enough for Betty? and wasn’t mama Cooper the one who found Grundy’s gun hidden in Betty’s room in which we don’t know what happened to it? and that papa Cooper took the files about Jason Blossom’s death from Sheriff Keller’s office. Not to mention there was a car drifting outside the trailer(FP Jones home) before mama Cooper texted.

come to think of it, why would she text ‘where are you guys?’ when she probably doesn’t even know Archie was there to help Veronica, but okay if you say mama Cooper knows Archie was involved, why would she asked where they are if she knows or not that they were in the trailer— searching for clues. Unless papa Cooper was the one to implant the gun (car outside), saw Veronica and Archie, and texted mama Cooper. And maybe, it’s mama Cooper’s way so Hal can come back to them by helping her to frame FP.

The @swdomesticverse is a modern au for The Clone Wars … that tries to be cute and just for fun, but kind of falls short for its racism. 

I kind of didn’t want to do this post generally bc it reads as a callout post, and I don’t … like … doing that if I can avoid it. So. I’m @’ing in the event they want to fix the below things, and sticking them under a cut. Just putting the two major issues that stand out immediately.

Who. The. Fuck. Said that this much snow was okay at this time of the year, on the day of our Lord and savior, April 27th? I did not authorize this. I have given no indication of wishing the hellish ice dandruff a return. Why must this planet forsake me in this way. This is why we cannot have nice things.

You berated yourself in the shower. How could you have been so stupid? When had he moved on? Why did you take so long to make a move? Did he realize he didn’t want a human? You were so utterly and completely humiliated that you would give a lung just to be able to take the moment back.

The whole day had gone to hell after the stunt you pulled. When you got to the fiction section, he took a while to follow. When you looked at the movies, and asked if any looked interesting, he just shook his head. He didn’t say a word in the car on the way to dinner, and at dinner, he only picked at his food.

You weren’t sure he was going to join you for the movie, but he did. Barely. He was off in his head somewhere, not even looking toward the tv. When the movie was over, he gave a sorry excuse of a goodbye and practically ran out the door.

Something I wanted to point out about Allura and Lance...

I don’t think their relationship is just a series of Lance flirting and Allura rolling her eyes.

So remember in episode 3 of season 2 how when they were going to Ulaz’s communication base Lance offered to stay behind to “protect the princess”? (this glorious face may jog your memory):

We all know he’s the curious adventurous type, so of course he’d want to go with the others to check out the space-folding rebel base run by the guy who saved Shiro, right? But he doesn’t. And it’s not like Shiro said one person needs to stay behind. Lance completely on his own volunteered. The question is why?

Of course Allura doesn’t really need any protection in this situation, but I do think that Lance stayed back for Allura’s sake…
