Shrek makes infinitely more sense if you ascribe to the theory that everyone is a PC in an RPG, and Donkey’s player managed to avoid a boss battle by rolling a nat 20 to seduce the fucking dragon

“I want to be a half-ogre.”

“What? You can’t. They’ve seen your picture, and you’re a human.”

“The ogre half is at night.”

“Ok, now it’s time for the boss fight against Farquaad.”

“I have my dragon girlfriend eat Farquaad.”

“…you what?”

“I have my dragon girlfriend-”

“No, no, I heard you the first time. Look, I’m gonna roll a d20 and if it’s a 20 then the dragon will eat Farquaad.”
-dice sounds-

*pinches the bridge of his nose* “Ok, so the boss is fucking dead now.”

look. i don’t think my stretch marks are beautiful. i don’t think they’re tiger stripes or natural tattooos. i don’t think my acne is beautiful. i don’t think the bags under my eyes are beautiful. i just think they’re human. and i don’t think i have to be beautiful all of the time in order to be accepted and loved and sucessful. i don’t think every small detail of my outer appearence needs to be translated into prettiness.

I think that cis/straight people have the wrong idea about what The Closet™ is, honestly. I frequently get asked questions like “So are you out or in the closet?” But the fact is that it doesn’t really work like that. Someone’s Out status isn’t a perfect binary that can be answered in a yes or no question. I know that movies and TV shows like to have the dramatic banner in the sky moment where they say “I’m transgender!” or “I’m bi!” and the parents find out and all the friends find out and suddenly everyone in town knows. But that’s not how coming out works for a lot of people. Coming out is not one event, rather, it’s a continuous series of many events that range from big to small throughout your life. For instance, coming out to your friends and coming out to your parents are generally two completely different decisions, and a lot of people are out to some people they know but not out to others. Some people never come out to their parents at all but they’re Out to everyone else in their life—our closets can be temporary, transient, or something that we only return to from time to time.

And then there’s the everyday closets. Do you correct the cashier when they call you sir? Do you say “my girlfriend” when you’re talking about your plans for the night with a coworker? Do you react to the “small” things like a relative asking when you’ll get a girlfriend or being called your dead name in passing? For the most part, we make decisions about Being Out every day, and often many times in a day. It happens every time we meet someone new, every time someone makes assumptions about us, every time we encounter a bigot or even another person who’s LGBT. The Closet can be a real choice for some people and if they don’t want to come out it doesn’t mean that they’re ashamed or that they aren’t proud of their identity. For other people, it’s important that they make every conscious effort to indicate their identity, be it through dress or conversation or some other way. But it’s important for cis/straight people to understand that The Closet is not a leap from people not knowing your identity to everyone knowing. Someone can be simultaneously Out and in The Closet at the same time, and most people are.

These horrific, sexist, racist paragraphs - screenshotted and shared for posterity by James Smythe, to whom we are all indebted - are the work of one Liam O’Flynn, a writer and English teacher. Evidently, they come from his book Writing With Stardust: the Ultimate Descriptive Guide for students, parents, teachers, and lovers of English, and are intended as examples of good writing.

UM.

Dear white male writers: DO NOT DO THIS SHIT. IT IS SUPER GROSS AND FETISHISTIC AND ALSO TERRIBLE WRITING. THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS. 

Like I just. “Her virility-brown eyes -” WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN? How can you have an “Amazonian figure” ON a “wafer-thin body” when “figure” is a word that describe’s a body’s shape, and Amazonian means pretty much the DIRECT FUCKING OPPOSITE of “wafer-thin” in the first place?  What the shitting fuck does ANY of this mean, apart from “I am only nebulously familiar with the concept of women and completely at a loss if I can’t compare their various bodyparts to jewels, animals and footstuffs”?

STOP 

GO TO WRITING JAIL

GO DIRECTLY TO WRITING JAIL, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200

tag yourself i’m the two beryl-green jewels in the snow

if her ears frame her nose do they like, grow directly beside her nose? how does she see from them?

oh my goddddddd

i can’t get over this fucking post

“I loved her nebulous, eden-green eyes which were a-sparkle with the ‘joie de vivre’. They were like two beryl-green jewels melted onto snow.”

1. what the fuck is joie de vivre

2. melted jewels?

3. beryl green

eden green:

WHICH ONE IS ITTTTTTTTT

@laughlikesomethingbroken “Joie de vivre” is a French phrase that literally translates to “joy of living”, while it IS one of those phrases that gets used in English in this context it is SO EXTRA AND UNNECESSARY OH MY GOD. Don’t use French to make yourself sound sophisticated when you’re NOT I don’t know where to even START. Curvilinear waist? Sugar candy-sweet? What the FUCK are seraph’s ears? Voguish clothes? What the everloving fuck is “constellation blue” supposed to mean??? Like forget the objectification, this writing is horrifying enough before we even get to the embedded sexism

seraph’s ears are ears that you can’t see bc they’re hidden behind her 6 wings

Oyster white teeth?

holy purple prose batman

Female writers do this too. Have you read a Mills and Boon novel? Have you read high school girls’ yaoi fanfics?

Uh oh, we were focusing too much on how a grown man is selling this shit and not enough shitting on teenage girls. Egalitarians here to put an end to that shit.

Guess what? I’ve read A LOT of Harlequin novels and a LOT of fanfic and I have never ever seen anything this horrible at description.

Also, none of those stories were trying to hold themselves up as high examples of the craft

You: BUT A CHILD MIGHT SEE IT!!!

Me: Not my problem.

You: BUT A TRAUMA VICTIM MIGHT SEE IT!!!

Me: Not my problem.

You: BUT–

Me: WHAT MEDIA YOU WILLINGLY OR EVEN ACCIDENTALLY CONSUME IS NOT MY PROBLEM. YOU ARE NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU, I OWE YOU N O T H I N G.

this just in: basic levels of caring for other people no longer a thing


media doesnt exist in a vaccum, take proper measures to ensure your work doesmt harm people (tagging it, flagging nsfw blogs as such, etc). if your work is going to be harming people regardless of any cautionary steps, maybe you should take a long hard look at what youre creating and why

I tag all of my works and encourage others to do so as well, because that’s proper Internet etiquette, but, also, it’s still not my responsibility to look after someone else’s kids or to take care of someone else’s mental health issues.

I’m a mentally ill CSA survivor, and I do what I must to take care of myself. I know my limits, I know my triggers, and I’ve even taken the time to think of things that I haven’t been triggered by yet, but that might trigger me, so that I can proceed with caution.

It isn’t a content creator’s job or responsibility to worry about how their fanart or fanfiction might impact EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING ON PLANET EARTH. It’s the job of Internet browsers to browse responsibly.

This isn’t about “not caring for people,” I care quite a lot for people. It’s about content creators being harassed by people who think it’s their responsibility to see to the needs of every individual on the Internet.

I’m going to post my nasty guro porn all I want, and I’ll tag it, but if someone sees it regardless, that’s not my issue. I’m sorry if it triggers them, I’m sorry if it upsets them, but all they can do is unfollow me or blacklist my trigger tags. I’m not going to stop posting my artwork and stories just because a handful of people managed to stumble upon it (or willingly subjected themselves to it) and were upset by it.

It’s my fucking blog, Karen.

THIS. i’m too damn busy living my life to live somebody else’s. i’ll be ethical and give people fair warning where appropriate as often as i can, but i won’t even attempt to anticipate and tailor myself to a random hypothetical stranger’s media needs. go read a pet blog instead. i promise it’ll be ok.

i just fucking hate this culture we’ve created where its a bad thing to help people

like why stress “a hand-up not a hand-out!” whats wrong with a hand-out? whats wrong with sharing and giving and loving? 

we are a social species, we thrive when we work together and help each other, this fucking capitalist hellscape we live in is not natural or good or the only way

It’s 100% racism. Welfare was popular when the common media image of American poverty was white dust bowl farmers and Appalachians. As the go-to image of poverty shifted to urban black people, public opinion polling for welfare and related social safety net programs plummeted. This has been studied extensively.

loved one: sorry, i can’t hang out! i have plans with other people 

my hellbrain’s instincts: wow you love them more tha- 

me, ignoring her and working on being a better person: that’s okay! i hope you have fun! can we hang out some other time?

I love this bc it’s a little snapshot of what the intermediate stage of recovery/treatment/growth can look like.

It might not be what you expect. I think people want to stop having those thoughts immediately, and if they can’t they feel that they’ve failed. But that’s not true! Challenging those old thought patterns is exactly what recovery looks like

NIRLOCK: A Spoor in Scarlet, Chapter #1: “Rabbiting”

Nirlock Index

OHMIGOD ITS FINALLY OUT!!!
This took forever to do. Way longer than I expected. This is of course mainly due to my massive lack of self-discipline. Sorry to keep you guys waiting xD

Anyways, Nirlock is An AU webcomic with the scope of merging the characters and ideas of Zootopia with the brilliant series Sherlock. It is NOT supposed to be a Sherlock remake with Zootopia-skins slapped onto the characters. What we want to do is imagine what Nick and Judy would be like if they were to take on the roles of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson!

this is the only movie we need. just a movie on what mechanical machines do when humans aren’t there. who makes the machines? no one does. they are born and birthed like babies. because they are babies.

Fun Facts About The Nightmare Before Christmas Movie pt 1

Reasons why this is still one of the coolest films ever.

This film is the reason I’m a filmmaker and Tim burton is my favorite director

Also a fun fact:

Tim Burton did not direct The Nightmare Before Christmas

Henry Selick never gets the credit he deserves for this movie, and Coraline (which he also directed) never gets the credit it deserves for being total genius.
