you better say that shit

the DM: Okay, at the end of the hallway is a stone door with no visible locks, latches, or opening mechanisms. Carved into the stone is an inscription that reads, “What is the sound of silence?”

the bard, instantly:  ♪ Hello darkness my old friend ♪

DM: …………………Oh my god. I forgot-

bard:  ♪ I’ve come to talk with you again ♪

DM: No, that’s not the answer- 

bard:  ♪ Because a vision softly creeping ♪

DM: Here, I’ve got my notes, let me change the riddle-

bard:  ♪ Left its seeds while I was sleeping  ♪

DM: Please-

bard, emphatically now:  ♪ AND THE VISION THAT WAS PLANTED IN MY BRAIN  ♪

DM: IT’S NOT-

bard:  ♪ STILL REMAINS ♪

DM: I’M BEGGING-

bard:  ♪ WITHIN THE SOUND ♪

DM: PLEASE-

bard:  ♪ OF SILENCE ♪

DM, with a visibly broken spirit: …Yeah, okay. The door swings open.

Accept that sometimes people walk around with a false perception of who you are. Keep doing your own thing and being the best version of yourself that you can be. Believe in the people who know who you are, and let go of all the rest.

Okay, so, it’s time for me to rant about Princess Turdina. Obviously, there will be spoilers, so if you haven’t watched it yet, scoot on past.

This episode was… bad. Like, really bad? I’d like to specifically hear from other trans women like myself, but yeah, wow. This was… a bad fuckin’ allegory.

SO. From the very beginning of the episode, Marco is worried about “coming clean”, and how they “can’t keep lying”. From the get-go we have this crisis between Marco’s assigned gender and their assumed one, which is COMPLETELY contrasting to previous episodes like St. O’s and Heinous, wherein it was just assumed that it was fine that Marco was being who they were, and presenting how they wanted. Gender had not come up in ANY way until this episode. Being a princess was just… being a princess.

Then you’ve got the line from Princess Arms about “if you weren’t being honest about who you are, then this whole school would be built on a lie!” essentially shaming Marco for having represented themselves in a different way during their first time in St. O’s.

(Obligatory shoutout to the Whispering Gardens for once again saying All Girls Gossip, nice stereotyping, what an amazing progressive show)

The lines from Goat Princess (“You showed us that all princesses don’t have to fit into the same mold”), Ponyhead (“You are SO much more fun as Turdina!”), and Marco themselves (“I’m so beautiful…!”) in the following scene really drives home that this episode IS meant to be a trans allegory, whether or not it’s explicit, but then is QUICKLY followed up with Star’s “Well he should tell the truth, like a decent human being” as if not outing themselves is a fucking capital crime.

After the statue scene, Star and Ponyhead do an emotional tug of war on Marco, in which Star says Marco should “Tell the truth” and Ponyhead insists that Marco is happier and should do as they please. The framing of the argument, in that Ponyhead is always displayed as more emotional and almost always in the wrong for these things, frames the narrative that Marco SHOULD be taking Star’s advice, and that they should “Tell the truth like a decent human being”. Star’s been wrong before, but in this instance, they really frame her decision as the right thing to do.

Marco then, on stage, attempts to out themselves, but before they can, Heinous LITERALLY EXPOSES THEIR BODY ON STAGE, OUTING THEM TO THE SCHOOL. THIS IS INEXCUSABLE, WHY IS THIS FUCKING IN AKID’S SHOW. I get that it was just their chest hair, but I’m fucking so mad at this scene, and it’s ridiculous that not only was this allowed, but also that the crew even THOUGHT to put this in a fucking episode, I’m SO mad. Then the fact that Marco is a boy SHOCKS the audience.

They then attempt - in a bad, hamfisted way - to let Marco know that “He can be a princess if he wants to!” and claiming “Turdina is a state of mind!”. They drive Heinous out, blah blah. Star states that Marco looks like “You can breathe a lot easier now” and Marco jokes that it’s because they’re out of the dress, which is like… I guess it feels like Marco thought the whole thing didn’t really matter? Like, that it wasn’t a big deal? And then it goes back to Heinous and how she’s Eclipsa’s daughter but ANYWAY.

The theme and tone of the show is up and down and up and down and it feels… I mean, I guess it feels like cis people trying to write a Trans Lesson, which it literally is, and it’s never a fucking good idea. It was blunt allegories and trying to take the middle road to appeal to both trans Marco fans and also those who dislike the theory, but it just DOESN’T work. Not in an episode where Marco’s gender is the whole POINT.

It was all just… bad. I wasn’t hoping for this to outright confirm trans Marco OBVIOUSLY, because the crew is too scared to do that, even with other shows like Andi Mack confirming their gays. What I WAS hoping for was some acceptance and some confirming of Marco’s femininity and, I guess, breadcrumbs, leading us toward the eventual canon of Marco being trans. Instead the crew basically said “Hey look another St. O’s episode and also let’s talk about GENDER and how BAD IT IS to LIE TO PEOPLE” and it was just a shitty fucking episode.

Honestly if this is how the SvtFoE crew is going to handle transness, I’d just rather them fucking not. Let us write our fanfiction, and have our art, and just… leave trans Marco out of the show if you’re going to do this shit.

Stiles and Lydia awkwardly sit at a coffee shop in Beacon Hills the day after the pack’s big win. 

“So,” They both start and then Stiles laughs, clearly uncomfortable, “You go first.”

“I’ve been thinking,” Lydia says, slowly and deliberately, “And I think that this, us, just isn’t working.”

Stiles lets out a sigh, “Oh, thank god.”

“You feel it too?” Lydia asks, letting out a breath and relaxing into her chair.

“It’s like kissing my sister,” Stiles says, “No offense.”

“None taken, I completely agree,” Lydia takes a sip of her coffee, “Plus, after seeing you with Derek. Well, it’s just a little obvious that you’re more into him than you were ever into me.”

“I, what? I’m not into Derek! You’re into Parrish!” Stiles word vomits, then lets his head thunk onto the table, “Is it really that obvious?”

“I think the only person who doesn’t see it is Derek,” Lydia smiles, “And I’m not into Parrish, I’m into the idea of getting the hell away from Beacon Hills and finally going to MIT.”

“Good, you deserve better than this shit town,” Stiles says, “We both do.”

“You deserve someone who makes you smile.”

“Look, Lyd, we both know I don’t have a chance in hell with Derek Hale,” Stiles runs his fingers through his hair, “He’s so out of my league I think we’re playing different sports.”

“Don’t sell yourself short,” Lydia tells him, standing up, “And maybe ask him how he feels about all of it.”

“Yeah, right, I’m just going to walk up to Derek and tell him I find his asshole tendencies charming and that I want to kiss his stupid face,” Stiles says and then stops when he sees the look on Lydia’s face, “He’s right behind me isn’t he.”

“I’ll see you around Stiles,” Lydia says, then adds, “Derek.”

“So, you find my asshole tendencies charming huh?” Derek slips into the seat that Lydia vacated. 

“Please leave me here to die in shame,” Stiles says into the table.

“But then how would I kiss your stupid face?” Derek says and Stiles looks up to see Derek grinning at him.

He smiles back. There’s a whole new world of possibilities in their smiles.

Hiddlesweek Day 6: Favourite Quote

  • The classical Tom answer on “So if you came back as a woman, what’s the first thing you would do?”

Isn’t funny how racists complain about two black Irises but zero complain about one green eyed Barry, one brown eyed Barry, & brunette, skinny Barrys? And suddenly you guys are comic book purists, but only when it comes to an Iris am I right?

Grant Gustin and Ezra Miller look nothing like Barry in the comics. But no one complains about it. It’s so transparent. 

Iris has been black for 3 years on TV already, you’d think people would be used to a black Iris. But nah, never underestimate the power of racists. 

“Classic.” Look at this coded racism/micoraggression.

i hate when people on tumblr just say shit like “just surround yourself with positive people!!!! dont keep negative people in your life!!!!” like it’s not easy to just drop friends you’ve known for years and magically find a new gang of friends that you can trust so stop making it sound so simple

Brutally honest venus in signs

Venus in Aries:
Fall in love with u like this and go after it, but if you disappoint them somehow the love dies instantly. Can actually be offended without reason and break up or ghost you and find a new love before you start feeling there is something wrong. They’re great at starting it but after the yes they don’t know what to do and can be too impulsive to make things work.

Venus in Taurus:
They like fancy shit and you better be fucking fancy too, dress well or at least have some style. They love to feel like they’re home though and besides the fancy restaurants and places you will need to take them, when the two of you are comfortable enough they will want to eat, fuck and nap the whole day.

Venus in Gemini:
They love talking and sharing stories, so you better be ready to have a romance that is worthy to talk about or they will find a group of people to have new stories. They can be a very dramatic, and are the type that suffers from that true love while kissing other people. They love be around others and you will to have to share your love with friends and family and colleagues of work and etc.

Venus in Cancer
They will mother you, cook to you, clean your shit and complain and complain and complain and remember the last time you’ve disappointed them because they never forget and their trust is like a mirror, once you break it they will cut the shit out of you from time to time. They’re lovely though, and usually cook very well.

Venus in Leo
They’re born to do incredible things and you better be incredible too or they won’t waste their time. Also, they’re incredible for themselves, not for you, so if you don’t think they’re amazing too and if they notice you don’t care they will show you how everyone does while kicks your stupid butt.

Venus in Virgo
You better be perfect. They won’t look at you if you don’t have a job and is not presentable to the family, and you better keep the standards you showed when trying to impress them or they will criticize the soul out of you. Tbh even if you’re perfect they will find problems on you cause they just like to argue and see how you react to that. It’s almost a kink.

Venus in Libra
They’re diplomatic af and will never hurt your feelings, and you better respect them and show them love cause they can be very seductive and find another love whenever they want to. They’re smart and elegant, the type every conservative will want to, but on the inside they’re a wreck and needy, and you better be ready to do all the decisions for them.

Venus in Scorpio
They’re intense and play direct: if they want you they will seduce you very straight forward, but without being obvious for other people than you. They want it to be unforgettable, something to change your lives completely. If you stay, they can love you no matter what. If you somehow disappoint them they will traumatize you just for the fun. Once you meet them, you will love or hate them for the rest of your life. Sometimes both.

Venus in Sagittarius
They love new cultures, new meetings, new things and you better be ready to meet all the new places and travel a lot otherwise they will move on asap. They can love blindly and think you’re the only one and worship you like a kind of god or sarcastically point all your problems and pretend they’re just joking while analyzing if you’re worthy their time because they’re 8 or 80, no middle term.

Venus in Capricorn
They’re tough and cold on the outside, but if you prove you’re worthy of their noble feelings of love they will work the shit out to buy the heaven for you. Sometimes literally work because they love money and work and their professional career as much as they love you. They’re needy but even when feeling insecure they know they’re better than everyone and keep their shit together (until you actually say there is something wrong, then they will become emo af).

Venus in Aquarius
You better have the same political position they do or they will probably murder you. They value mental connection above everything, so be ready to discuss your feelings more than actually feel it. They will surprise you in lots of ways because they like to be unpredictable. Including if they get bored or irritated: they will just say goodbye and disappear from your life like they’ve never been there.

Venus in Pisces:
They won’t share their feelings and will dream more than do anything. Don’t expect them to take the initiative cause they will be freaking out since they’re afraid of ruining their ideals with reality. They’re very sensitive and internally know how you feel - and can be manipulative and petty af in order to get things in their way because they never directly say anything. They’re people to marry and fight over stupid little shit.

[The half-elf bard with a criminal background decides to look for marshmallows for their campfire while in a forest. This is our second session.]
DM: Roll for perception.
Bard: 14?
DM: Well, you definitely find something. Your character stumbles into a field of fluffy white plants and they sure LOOK like marshmallows.
Bard: Can I roll to inspect them?
DM: Sure.
Bard: 17.
DM: They’re drugs.
Bard: …. I call my underground contact and ask how much I can sell each plant for.
DM: *rolls* Okay. He says he’ll take them for two gold apiece.
Bard: How many can I sell him?
DM: *rolls a perfect 100* I… he. He’ll take the whole field. Unbelievable.
Bard: I sell him all of them.
DM: This is… in a few days your character will receive 17,000 gold.
Bard, returning to the camp: Guess who just become everybody’s sugar daddy.

A Stranger: New Vegas was the only good…

the most upsetting thing about this whole situation is that by edward highlighting the fact that the kpop industry is full of skinny ppl, it made a lot of ppl look at kyla not only now as ‘fat’ but lazy, naive and stupid for choosing a career where she would stand out. ppl are talking about how she should ‘focus more on school’ and that she made ‘a child’s decision’ to become an idol when ‘she should have known’ she was going to be criticised 

its just rly upsetting that ppl are now not only criticising her for her body, but for choosing and working towards a career she’s passionate about and trying to make her seem foolish for it. she’s a 15 year old girl who’s achieved so much through her talent and hard work and ppl think they have the right to say she’s not entitled to being happy with her achievements bc of her weight. many other young idols are ‘allowed’ to be as happy and proud and successful as they should be, so why isn’t kyla?

Friend: You look upset, what’s wrong?


Me, internally: In the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, John Gabriel Utterson has live with knowing that both of his best friends are dead. He was the lawyer to both of them but still the death of Robert (Hastie) Lanyon was still so sudden and out of the blue, he couldn’t save Dr. Lanyon. Then he has to live with knowing he was seconds too late to save Henry Jekyll. This is all canon by book standards. Not to mention, Lanyon doesn’t exist in the musical but Utterson does. Mr. Utterson is forced to shoot Dr. Jekyll six times, killing him. In the Wedding Reception, after Henry is shot, you can hear John drop his gun and cry “Oh my God! No!” In every adaptation, John Gabriel Utterson is forced to watch his best friends die.


Me, laughing: yeah, I’m good. How are you?
