Oi, Cassie! I was reading TotSA and I stopped to think about the Herondale family. We know that Kit is a Shadowhunter. But I was thinking... Is Johnny Rook a Shadowhunter too? I can't remember if this fact was clear in LM. And if the Shadowhunter one was his mom? We don't know much about her. And I don't know if we will explore more about Kit's past in the next books... I'm just a little confused about it. Was Kit's mom just a mundane?

Johnny Rook was I guess what you would call a dormant or latent Shadowhunter. As Shadowhunter blood is dominant, he could have been a Shadowhunter had he ever chosen to be Marked or trained or anything like that but as we know from, for instance, Tessa’s mother, you can spend your whole life not knowing you’re a a Shadowhunter and not being too affected. 

We don’t know anything about Kit’s mom – yet.

  • Psychic: what the fuck

It’s not “insane” to hypothesise that homosexuality might have been hated before women were. Gender serves both to separate the sexes into a “natural” complementary dichotomy (by magnifying the biological differences between them and creating artificial ones), and to enshrine and justify male supremacy. Gender has both a “male / female = yin / yang” side and a “male / female = dominant / submissive” side. Gay men are oppressed by the first one (because the natural complementary yin / yang aspect posits homosexuality as inferior, less natural, less fitting, making less sense) and privileged by the second one, which posits their sex as superior. Bi/het women are oppressed by the second one (the dominant / submissive side) and privileged by the first one, which posits their sexuality as superior. Lesbians are oppressed by both.

Radfems believe that the two have always been intrinsically linked, that the only purpose of that first aspect is to justify and solidify the second aspect (i.e. the more separate and different the two sexes are, the easier it is to claim that one is superior to the other), or that the first aspect exists only because of the second one (i.e. the artificial differences between the two sexes exist because men avoid doing “women things” because they hate women). In other words, they downplay the aspect that privileges them by defining it as a mere auxiliary to the one that oppresses them. By that logic, anything that reinforces that first aspect only reinforces their oppression, not their privilege. It’s a particularly useful logic when they do or say things that reinforce it.
But, although it’s difficult today to separate the two as they have become so entangled and synergistic - it’s possible that they weren’t originally linked, that the complementary yin / yang aspect was conceived first (as e-h said, in the context of the early hetero creation myths, for example) and that the dominant / submissive aspect was added to it later. It’s possible that the concept of the male / female pairing as natural & superior, vs. male / male or female / female = unnatural & inferior, existed before “male = superior vs. female = inferior”.

After all, you don’t need to believe that men are superior to women in order to believe that heterosexuality is superior to homosexuality. Homophobic radfems keep proving it. Deep down, a lot of bihet radfems believe that homosexuality is less natural than heterosexuality. You see this mentality on tumblr constantly (”how dare you suggest bi/het women stop dating men” vs. “being in a lesbian relationship is a luxury” = how can you expect me to resist the overpowering urges of my deep-rooted natural hetero attraction vs. homosexuality is a shallow bourgeois indulgence) but also in those “feminist utopia” books written by 2nd-wavers in which lesbianism no longer has any reason to exist now that women are liberated from male domination.

Man I'm sorry everyone's being super dumb and cissexist. I got that post first thing when I read it. I'm a trans lesbian and lemme tell you the struggle of trying to find a sapphic girl who's willing to date me. You wouldn't believe how many people have told me "it's not gay if there's a dick involved". People are frickin dumb.

Right? It’s not fun. Hell, I’m not even particularly interested in dating, much less sex, but it kinda sucks to think that it’s mostly off the plate if I were. The effort of finding someone who might be interested is too great to bother with if it’s not a top priority.

lucia-ik  asked:

after that kidnaping post I feel like I need some family comedy in my life. idk I could totally see keith being the person that could read smut with a straight face(as long as it's not directed towards him it's all cool). So one day keith is editing this sex scene and writing constructive criticism for the author and shiro reads it over his shoulder and is scandalize(your reading that at the family table?!) and keith just shrugs and says: how do you think I found out i'm ace?

I am laughing so hard because this is just hilarious! LMAO THANK YOU. This is a great prompt and I hope not to disappoint XD

[The Voltron Family] The three kids were in the kitchen trying to bake cookies with Hunk leading them considering he was 11 now and Lance was 10 and Pidge was 9. Keith was in the breakfast table, monitoring them making sure not to make too much mess on a Saturday morning—all while working on a new author he was handling. It was a bit different from his usual ones, which were young adult novels, but Keith was open to new things—this manuscript being aimed at 18 and above. 

Basically it had smut. The manuscript was thick, and currently he was reading the sex scene and he couldn’t help but criticize it. Not only the writing, but the way the sex was happening between two guys. Keith kept knitting his eyebrows in frustration as he scribbled using his red pen on the sides for notes.

Better think this one through. I don’t believe it could stretch that much. Take this from me, I know. 

This is just honestly too unsanitary. Revise. 

I’m not kink shaming but, this is absolutely impossible to do. Revise or think of another kink. 

Hunk: Daddy Keith, how many cups of sugar again?
Keith: *looks up* Just one cup, baby. *smiles*

Keith went back to reading with a straight face while his kids laughed at how Lance couldn’t get to crack an egg right. 

Keith: Make sure to wash your hands, Lance. And Pidge, pick up that wooden spoon and wash it if you’re going to use it again. *goes back to reading*

Shiro joined them in the kitchen all fresh and clean after his workout. He saw Keith sitting on the stool by the breakfast table, reading while looking so bored but he’d bend down to write a thing or two. The kids spotted him and signaled them to hush it as he walked over behind Keith to wrap his arms around Keith’s tummy and resting his chin on Keith’s shoulder.

Shiro: Good morning, red bean. *kisses Keith’s cheek*
Keith: *hums in acknowledgement* *nuzzles his cheek on Shiro’s* *continues to concentrate reading* 
Shiro: *smiles* *hugs Keith tighter*

Shiro’s eyes wandered on the manuscript Keith was reading and it started out great and then suddenly he read the sex scenes and he detached himself from Keith, looking absolutely scandalized.

Shiro: *taps Keith* *whispers* YOU’RE READING THAT IN THE FAMILY TABLE?!!! *looks at the kids pointedly* WITH THE KIDS IN THE KITCHEN?! 
Keith: *turns around to look at Shiro* *raises eyebrow* You say that as if I’m reading smut to the kids out loud.
Shiro: *blushes* But Keith! That’s so… *whispers* obscene.
Keith: It is. *sighs*
Shiro: How can you read that with such a straight face?!
Keith: *snorts* How’d you think I found out I’m ace? 
Shiro: *gapes* You read por—
Keith: *chuckles* I tried things to see if something’s wrong with me, babe. This… *points at the manuscript* just doesn’t affect me. Or anything sexual for that matter to be honest. Then I accepted myself, I just don’t, yknow?
Shiro: *smiles* And that’s fine, Keith. *hugs* I love you just the way you are.
Keith: *smiles* You cheese ball. *turns back to the paper* Also, this is honestly frustrating. Check this out. This guy thinks he could stretch like a friggin gymnast! No one can be that flexible without proper training and—
Shiro: *rests his chin on Keith’s shoulder* Hmmmm *reads* Oh my god. That’s gross. *points at a scene* How are people this— that is unsafe.
Keith: That’s what I said. *sighs* Mind helping me? You’re more… yanno.
Shiro: *raises an eyebrow* More what, Keith? I’m more what? *smirks*
Keith: This is your area of expertise, not mine. I only have you as my se—
Shiro: *covers Keith’s mouth* *whispers* DON’T SAY THAT IN FRONT OF THE KIDS!!! You’re so scandalous! I’ll help you, okay? Just don’t traumatize our children at the tender age of 11. *looks at Hunk*
Hunk: *looks back at them curiously* Yes?
Shiro: You’re doing great, sweetheart! *takes a seat beside Keith* *looks at his husband* Okay, now which part do you need— *notices Keith staring at him* What now?
Keith: You’re so wonderful, you know that? *smiles fondly* 
Shiro: *rolls eyes* Now who’s the cheese ball here? *bumps Keith* Now lemme see that. *takes the manuscript*

Magic Bullet by matildajones (1/1 | 10,345 | PG13)

Someone clears their throat loudly and Derek looks up and finds Stiles in the dead centre of the room, his arm raised. Derek finds himself smiling slightly.
“Yes?”
“Seriously?” Stiles says. “Don’t you think you’re reading too much into this?”
-
Derek’s only comfort over the past few years has been a novel written by his favorite author. When he decides to teach it at an entry level university course he doesn’t expect a fiery student to disagree with everything he says…

After School by thingsiwontadmittohavewritten (1/1 | 869 | NC17)

It’s the first day of school after the long summer, his smart mouth once again getting him into trouble

still bored still tired by Acrylicdemon (1/1 | 6,145 | R)

It wasn’t all terrible, Stiles knows. He was so cold, Derek was so warm, everything was fading and he was just so tired. His mom gently took his hand, led him to the abyss, and it was alright. He was safe. Everyone was safe. Nothing is cold, everything is warm and welcome. And when Derek joins him in a matter of blinks, he can only smile. His dad joins them, and he’s happy. He’s never been so wonderfully filled, so loved. Everything is complete, and everything is okay. He leads Derek into Nirvana, and Derek shoots him a loving smile that melts his insides into gold.

He’s content with holding Derek’s hand for an eternity.

Okay hear me out: the critical role cast has some issues when it comes to lgbt+ representation & interacting with fans.

I know it’s easy to look at fans being upset over Marisha’s comments about Keyleth’s sexuality & think fans are “demanding”, “asking too much”, “intruding on a private game”. These are all accusations I’ve seen in the last 24 hours. It’s important to remember that this has all come up because Marisha was joking about f/f attraction on the stream. She has Keyleth say she wanted to see Vex’s breasts and it spiraled from there. 

Fans are reacting to this because Keyleth being bi/questioning/etc will remove the sting of this conversation. 

Confirming a character as exploring something other than heterosexuality (however badly it’s done) is still better than using other sexualities as a punchline. 

And the critical role cast does this. It does this a lot. Here are a few from the top of my head:

  • the purposeful misgendering of raishan (mainly by sam)
  • grog’s ‘boyfriend’  Kerrek
  •  scanlan’s many, many jokes about sex with men*
  • laura’s whole ‘haha maybe vex will get a gf ;) jk she’s been in love with percy this whole time’
  •  hell, vax’s romance with gilmore started off as liam trying to flirt the price of goods down. to his credit he committed to it for a while, but then he followed the bisexual trope of finding the ‘right’ person of a different sex and choosing them instead.

*sam had been joking about scanlan and men for months before finally discussing the topic seriously on twitter. even then he just said “not 100% heterosexual”. it’s progress, but there’s still a way to go

“but emma, they have good intentions! you have to be patient and respectful of the cast!” my dudes i dont have to respect someone who treats the representation of my community like a novelty shirt they can wear for a day and take off later. i know they’re trying, i know they’re learning, but they still need to apologize when they make a mistake. no one is asking for blood, folks. 

This could have been avoided (or certainly at least reduced) if Marisha hadn’t initially been so evasive on twitter. the unwillingness to confirm anything read as Marisha wanting to continue the trend of joking about lgbt+ representation. it was a dismissal. 

i love Marisha, god knows i defend her until i’m red in the face, but no one gets a universal pass. she’s an adult and she knew she upset people. it wouldn’t have cost her anything to tweet something like “hey i didn’t think about keyleth’s speech last night and i’m sorry that it came across as a cheap joke. i’d like to explore keyleth’s sexuality more & this will take time bc she’s inexperienced. please bear with me as both she and i figure this out”

that’s literally all she needed to do.

the cast struggles when it comes to apologizing to the lgbt+ community. we just need to look at how they handled the situation with j’mon’s misgendering. matt actually used the “dont get mad at your allies” speech, something i know a lot of us (myself included) have heard before. again, mistakes are going to happen. people slip up, we know this, but you still apologize for mistakes. you dont get to say “hm i dont think what i did caused you any harm”. you have to step back and say “oh i upset you? that wasnt my intention and i’m very sorry for that. this is new to me and i hope i will do better in the future”

final thoughts:

-this isn’t a private game anymore. this is a show that many of us pay money to access. that doesn’t give us the right to make demands, but it does give us the right to ask that our sexuality and gender aren’t treated as a joke. it gives us the right to ask a cast member if they were serious when they flirted with the idea of their character not being straight. 

-the problem isn’t that keyleth is questioning. the problem is that the cast has a tendency to joke about these things and then never return to it, as if lgbt+ representation is a tap you can turn on or off. (sam is the only exception i can think of, but again that wasn’t confirmed on screen.) minority groups shouldn’t be treated like this.

-it’s not entitlement to ask that your sexuality isn’t a punchline. it’s not demanding to ask for clarification. it’s not asking too much for an apology. 

if straight actors dont want to seriously consider non-heterosexual orientations, then they dont get to make jokes about sexuality. 

I feel like a lot of the public has this mentality that like, any celebrity who hasn’t come out publicly and supports or positively references LGBT issues and things can’t possibly be gay themselves because wouldn’t that be too obvious????

And it’s like, nope. They could still be gay.

And it’s okay to maybe think those kind of gestures mean something…

  • everyone: um sweetie :) don't you think you're romanticizing mental illness :) you're just reading too much into things

say you’re me and you’re in english class, supposedly analyzing lord of the flies but in actuality thinking about manga and how jarring isayama’s pacing is with snk. there’s of course, the fact that the clash of the titans arc takes place literally like a day or two before the female titan arc and pretty much everything happens in a flashback for some reason, then there’s the super-confusing mess that is the uprising arc with politics and some pretty fiiine character development that all happens in what’s probably less than 36 hours. 

and then, of course, there’s the return to shiganshina arc where they find out what’s in the basement after foreeever and then… an infodump??? for three chapters??? whyyyy!!

but of course if you really think about it, it makes perfect sense, in a kind of weird roundabout way that requires way too much thinking. but since this is english class of course you gotta analyze the story way too much in ways that the author likely never intended!

okay that was fun now onto actual meta or w/e. and, in case you guys didn’t pick it up from the introductory ramble, manga spoilers!!

  • we know that there’s only one family within the walls (besides grisha) who actually knows what goes on outside the walls: the reisses, the royal family. 
    • they’re the only ones able to actually access this power to remember all that happened pre-wall era at will, assuming they have the coordinate
    • there’s only one person with the coordinate power at a time within the walls, so that makes only one person inside (again, besides grisha because he literally comes from outside) who knows everything. 
      • AND they can’t tell anyone because it’s pretty overwhelming and terrible stuff
  • we know that the memories of the first king come are pretty overwhelming, completely taking over the holder of the coordinate for short spans of time

(i spent way too long looking for that screenshot but you know what it was fun refreshing my memory)

  • the memories of the outside world probably come rushing to the holder the second they become the new shifter in what’s probably a bunch of flashbacks, and when they come to literally minutes or less later, they’re completely different now that they have all this scary knowledge

(context for those who don’t mind spoilers or have forgotten details: historia’s father’s brother has just acquired the coordinate and is now more or less he god of the walled world. he knows.)

  • which brings me back to what i was originally harping on about: the point of the infodump on what’s going on outside the walls.
    • the reader is blind to all the truths and hidden secrets of the manga, just as everyone within the wall is blind to what happens beyond the titans and outside the walls.
    • and then, all of a sudden, we hit this huge milestone that’s been hyped up for literally 84 chapters, and we’re blown away with all. this. info. in such a short span of time. the meta writers went bonkers and everyone was kind of just screaming with their heads lit on fire.
      • that’s probably how all the reisses who inherited the coordinate felt when they first felt getting all this information

IN CONCLUSION: the way that the info dump was set up might have been intentional, paralleling how both the character’s felt at the time with this sudden heap of new information, and how most of the coordinate holders felt when they first learned everything.

i’m not saying it’s good writing. in my opinion, it was kind of lazy to just “hey kids we’re at this super hyped up, legendary basement have three months of screeching about now knowing everything whoop now there’s different problems yup”. but when overanalyzing it, it makes for a perfect mirror into how the characters themselves are feeling.

I’m Back!

Hello everyone!  I’m so happy to be back!  I’ve missed all of you so much, but I really needed the time away.  Things had gotten so overwhelming and I think I was just pushing myself too hard trying to write four fics a week plus reading all of the fics everyone else was writing.  I was going to wait until school was finished to come back, but I think if I just limit myself to writing one fic a week, I should be fine.  

I posted a Bucky Oneshot a few minutes ago just so everyone would know that I’m back.  Starting next Sunday, I’ll be posting the first part to In the Heart of the Storm.  It will post every Sunday at 2pm.  I’m not going to do a tag list since I’ll be posting regularly and I’m trying to keep things simple and stress free.

I’m going to be trying something new with my reblogs as well.  There’ll be more about that on Saturday.  Once school is finished (May 25), I might start posting two fics a week during the summer, but we’ll see how things go.  I’m already so overwhelmed with messages and new fics to read, I’m trying not to stress out about it all.  I’m going to take it slow and ease my way back in.

I also want to take a moment to say thank you to all of you for being so understanding of my hiatus.  I was a little nervous to come back and check my messages, and I’m happy to say that I didn’t have a single nasty anon!  I truly have the best followers on this site!  Knowing that I have your support really makes me excited to be back and to catch up with you all.

I love you all!

Out of curiosity : why would you be uncomfortable by Diana reading your fics?

Mostly it comes down to the fact that the bones of the thing aren’t really mine. Elements of the plot may be mine, the prose, the dialogue, etc. but not the characters, not the relationships or the dynamics. For me that’s the real heart of a story and those are definitely not mine. They may seem that way to my readers (and other writers may feel differently) and there are certainly relationships that can be explored in fanfic that can’t be explored in canon (like Brianna and Murtagh or Faith and anyone) and there are characters who get fleshed out/created to an extent (Faith, any additional headcanon Fraser bairns, etc.) but most of that is an extension of my understanding/interpretation of the characters and relationships that are in canon. Of course, most of my fics are simply canon divergent and so there’s so much of canon still at play. Changing an element of the plot, like bringing Jamie through the stones to the twentieth century, doesn’t really make Jamie a whole new character; it becomes a study in how the character from canon adapts and changes based on his canon experiences. 

I’ve done a bit of ghostwriting and I can tell you I feel no real ownership over any of that stuff either, no matter how much collaborative input went into the outlining and writing processes. I have a certain fondness for characters that I had more input on or plot points I particularly enjoyed, but the underlying ideas and concepts weren’t mine. Other people may (and almost certainly do) feel differently, but that’s me. I have enough ideas and plans of my own I’m working on (or rather, procrastinating on, haha). 

I’d be far more comfortable with sharing my original work because that really and truly is all mine and there is a lot more work involved in that level of creation. For me, fanfic is a fantastic and fun exercise and an incredible way to develop writing skills but I would rather be recognized for my original work. If (though hopefully, when) I have my own work published and if there are folks writing fanfic from it, I don’t know that I would read it either (I wouldn’t discourage it, by any means, but I think reading it would be too weird for me).

hey guys,

so i’ve been thinking this over for awhile now and i think it’s time to change up my blog style. i’ve had it for almost two year now and it’s always been pink. i was thinking maybe going more of the pastel goth route since that is more my style in real life anyway. i have a lot of posts left in my queue that are pink but after that it’s pastel goth! i think it’s time for a change how about you?

and also this:

This kind of replies and tags are on so many of my drawings. I HATE THEM. These ones aren’t even from nsfw-ish drawings of mine. They are from these two:

Actually pieces that I’m kinda proud of it!

I wanted people to feel happy while looking at Zen, feel like they were in some kind of fairytale! In Saeran’s one tho, because I love Lee Hi’s song “Rose” and because it reminded me of him I combined it.

BUT instead of that I feel disrespect towards my drawings and myself the artist…They are far from GREAT but I’m pretty proud of these ones, because I made them with the objective of making SOMEONE feel something in them.

Haven’t you guys seen clothes folding? Haven’t you guys seen a male Ice skater? I don’t care if you think or look at it! Just don’t put in the tags or replies because I don’t want to see that. If I ever see that again I’ll just delete the comment.

Thank you for reading and I hope you guys understand.
