why is this even published

Though honestly rather than wondering who would win between Iron Man and Batman, I’d rather think about:

  • Tony meeting the Robins and getting envious of Bruce’s litter of kids/sidekicks/family
  • Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne meeting at a high society gala and being all haughty at each other - before leaving quasi-together and going to chill somewhere else where they don’t have to pretend
  • or simply rescuing each other from acquaintances they’d rather avoid
  • sharing tips on how to repair your gear on the fly
  • the jla and the avengers exchanging worried and confused looks while they argue about whether it’s more sensible to have contingency plans for the case where you go crazy with power/lose your morals/get mind-controlled or for the case where it happens to your teammates
  • tony trying to talk about steve being always the good guy and bruce getting ‘yeah but well-intentioned doesn’t mean always right’ and tony pointing out that steve unlike clark is not all powerful and bruce starting to talk about the power of image and then tony gets about the power of status and money
  • at which point it turns into the responsibility of the powerful and how to make your company safer for all your employees and a force for the future/betterment of your city/country/the world
  • and how much personal involvement in charities is okay/necessary
  • and then they start yelling at each other about criminal rehabilitation and prevention of crimes and whether at some point you have to kill the green goblin/the joker but you shouldn’t
  • and honestly why would you go about physical/strategic fight when you could have them confront their similarities and differences over ideologies when it comes to worrying about the effect that superpowered humans/beings/individuals becoming common place has on non powered and so less protected humans, the fail safe that must exist alongside superheroes and superhumans, the responsibility that comes with being born into money and power
  • you could also have them aggressively Not Talk about each other parents because wow those are two very different situations
  • they’re also very different in the way they deal with being on a team and creating a family but wow do they also both have issues
  • so, eh i circled back to: tony and the robins
  • please talk to me about tony and kids
  • or about bruce adopting without adopting many kids and being both a caring father figure and being very bad at it
  • please tell me about tony’s being a weird uncle to tim and damian and even jason and dick
  • why would you go ‘batman vs iron man’ i so don’t care
  • please stop telling me they are each other dc/marvel equivalent they actually have different role their own verse and different relationships to people around them
  • please stop telling me that one or the other is morally superior that’s. just. no.
  • please

We all just want reading to be fun. We all just want to sit down with a story we’ll love and get lost in the beauty of it.

But when you’re marginalized, it doesn’t work that way. Almost every book recommendation I’ve gotten from Tumblr has been problematic, and I don’t mean “there were some poor word choices” problematic. I mean “sends me spiraling into a deep depression” problematic. I mean “leaves me wondering why the world hates me so much” problematic. I mean “considers giving up reading, my greatest past time for most of my life because I’m afraid I’ll never find a book that doesn’t hate the very essence of who I am problematic”.

And then we ask you all to be kind in what you rec, to listen to people who are hurt, and not support the boos that are hurting us, and what do we get? We get told we’re bullies. We get told we’re censoring. We get told to kill ourselves. I’m not even sure why we question the way publishing and books treat us when people on this website prove that’s just how the general populace feels.

Look, you want to have fun reading? So do I, but I don’t have that privilege when most books don’t even consider me human. Wanting. To. Ignore. Problematic. Books. Is. A. Privilege. If you can’t see that, maybe you should consider why your comfort is more important than ours. You should consider why your ability to enjoy a book matters more than the fact that people will use what’s written in these books to justify our genocide. Look at that scale. Look at it again. Now ask yourself why you want me quiet?

And before you argue about how your mental illness makes you need a reprieve, I’m mentally ill too. So are most of my POC friends. We don’t get that privilege. Why don’t you care about that?

If anyone’s wondering I’m not fine from yesterday and I’ll probably won’t be around much today.

The most embarrassing thing in the world had to be this - waking up in a cold bathtub with an unfairly hot firefighter holding an oxygen mask over his face. Also shivering, because hey, cold tub, and it’s December and the window is open. 

Dean stared, dazed, into beautiful blue eyes. A voice like liquid sin encouraged him to take deep breaths of the oxygen flowing through the mask.

“…carbon monoxide leak, your whole building was compromised. A man name Sam said you weren’t answering your phone. I apologize for breaking down the door. You do need to go to the ER and get checked out.”

“Yeah,” Dean said dopily.

Blue eyes frowned. “You’re still affected.” He spoke into his radio. “The EMTS are on their way up. I’m going to drain the water.” The man reached into the tub - between Dean’s spread legs - to pull the plug. 

It suddenly occurred to Dean that he was naked. In a tub. With a hot firefighter staring at him as the water gurgled down the drain. He made an awful sounding whine and gripped the sides of the tub, trying to pull himself out. 

“No, none of that, you’re alright,” his fireman soothed, reaching for the towel on the bar. He gently spread it over Dean’s lap. “Better?”

Dean nodded. “Dean,” he said softly. 

Blue eyes smiled. “I know. Sam told us. I’m Cas.”

“Hi Cas.”

“Hello Dean.”

tobrodachi: qowieufhqwoeiuf WHY DOES PORNINSECONDS LIKE THIS STUFF AS SOON AS YOU PUBLISH IT, EVEN IF IT ISN’T PORN? OMFG

Hey, nothing says porn blogs can’t love themselves some vintage mecha anime. They crank their hog while Xabungle’s OP is playing in the background.

Marvellous Women of Color // Maria Hill

I would clap my hands, but an assassin with a grudge shot a hole through one of them. So without further ado: there are two missions that require our immediate attention.

anonymous asked:

Why are you even publishing that person's asks? Nobody wants their stupid opinion on their dash. I still don't understand how some people have so much free time they spend it on harassing other people with their unwanted comments...

Ye sorry, case closed guys. My bad for opening the can of worms by making a passing comment.

Now back to your daily dose of anime and whatnot!

[ fanfiction | ao3 ]

Castiel is part of an anthropological team who are trying to study a remote tribe and getting nowhere until the tribe’s leader, Dean, takes a shine to Castiel. 

It’s a little difficult explaining to the University funding him why Castiel won’t be coming home, or why he won’t be publishing any papers about his study, and it’s even harder explaining how he ended up married to Dean when he was supposed to be maintaining a scientific detachment to the whole thing. 

anonymous asked:

Do you have any fics with Cas being super socially awkward, I mean like that being the focus in the fic and not just Cas being his normal awkward self like he always is.

Originally posted by ohmysupernatural

I love socially awkward Cas to the max. I don’t think we’ve done a rec like this before but I think you might be interested in our Shy Cas tag, Autistic Cas tag and Homeless Cas tag, because those three have elements of extremely awkward Cas in them. So check those recs too because I’m trying not to rec the same stories over and over again in this ask!

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: I love this fic and I’ve recced it in this blog way too many times already! Again, the only thing I absolutely hate about this fic is that I can’t read with my phone because of the letters destiel are writing to each other being pictures and they just don’t fit into my screen, making it impossible for me to read it. Also the letters are like the main thing in this fic so you can’t just skip them completely… so yeah, read this with your laptop or tablet instead.

Summary: Dean writes novels that don’t pay the bills and an advice column under the name Deanna, which does. Castiel writes in to Deanna, looking for help. They both get more than they expected.

Admin A’s notes: This fic has like the most awkward Cas ever and I love it. If there ever was a job not suitable for Cas then that would be a car-salesman :’D

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: Don’t let the fact that this fic is so obviously abandoned fool you. All the good stuff happens before the last published chapter… I don’t even know why the author decided to keep writing when for me the main storyline was kind of already over after Sabriel’s wedding. Anyway, this is a good story and totally worth of reading! Just remember to prepare yourself for the emotions… Not yours, but the characters :’D I swear every character in this fic have more mood swings than your average fourteen year old girl…   

Summary: Castiel is afraid to leave the house. His therapist and brother help him to make friends, resulting in meeting Dean, a shy mute who might just be the only one capable of getting him to come out of his shell.

Admin A’s notes: This is like nothing else that I’ve ever read. I know some of you might be turned off by the slow pace of the story but for me it just worked. I can really picture Cas standing in that booth day in and day out, waiting for Dean drive by.

Summary: Cas sees hundreds of faces every day, but there’s only one that he really cares about.

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: The amount of awkward moments in this fic is taking on epic proportions. Seriously I suffer from major case of secondhand embarrassment, so fics like these reduce me into an awkward turtle wishing I could just make Cas shut the hell up before he embarrasses himself more :’D

Summary: Strange things have been happening all around the Winchesters. However, it’s a whole new brand of strange. What’s actually behind it… is Castiel, attempting to court Dean through his new knowledge of pop culture, alongside his wingman - Hannah. Who clearly have no idea what the hell they’re doing.

Summary: In 2008 Seattle, one Wizarding reporter and two Muggle brothers find themselves sharing an apartment. Things go smoothly for the most part, aside from the fact that Castiel fails spectacularly at dressing like a Muggle, Dean is having issues with PDA, and there’s an American chapter of Death Eaters who have it out for cultural anthropologists.

Why am I scared if trump wins?

I get harassed every day. I am a transgender male and every god damn day I get laughed or or someone says something. I am scared to go out in public for the legit fear of getting harassed I can’t even use a public bathroom anymore cause I can’t pass as a boy to anyone it seems. Donald Trump will be okay with that. In fact he wouldn’t even touch the subject let alone bother with it. Trans people getting murdered and killing themselves have been in a all time high and you know what, I’ve tried, I have already tried three times to take my life because of people like Donald Trump. If he becomes president I just may succeed because it will only get worse, and no one will care anymore to even publish it because why? Because Trump will support all LGBTQ+ hate crimes. So thanks everyone who voted trump, you are the reason they are killing themselves, you are the reason I am afraid to go outside. You are the reason many of us are scared to use a public bathroom. I hope you’re proud
