Sometimes when I’m broke and bored and don’t give a shit, I genuinely contemplate starting a GoFundMe or some such thing where I basically turn into Deb from “Empire Records” and just put out a sign that says, “Give me money.”
And then I realize that that is a douchy thing to do, and that at the very least I should offer to make people cookies that look like ball pits.
I still have to finish editing far too much of Heroine Addiction and the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire story is about 23k, give or take.
Which is more than the “none of it” I had edited at the beginning of the summer and the 11,800 words I’ve had since the start of the year. Sooooo, yay me, I guess.
i love how tumblr is like personally offended by 50 shades of grey
LITERALLY WHAT IS THE HARM IN SAYING A CHARACTER IS BISEXUAL NOTHING OF PREVIOUS HETERO RELATIONSHIPS IS GLOSSED OVER IT GIVES REPRESENTATION TO A GROUP WHO IS OFTEN ERASED AND NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO FIGHT ABOUT THIS KIND OF SHIT WHY IS THIS EVEN A PROBLEM

just to mention— Freddy Mercury was Parsi and spent the bulk of his childhood in India. (x) possibly i misinterpreted…
Oh, I already knew that. Queen is my favorite band and Freddie is my god, so I’ve known all that for a looooooong time.
I mean, that last bit could have gone on forever — meeting Harriet Tubman, going back to give Alan Turing and Van Gogh great big hugs (and possibly slip them better depression medications), getting a chance to hang out with Martha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, meeting Fatima Al-Fihri (the Muslim woman who founded the first university), spending time with Ching Shih, having no idea what Hypatia or Ada Lovelace are talking about because I’m not big on science or math but not caring because oh, man, ladies and science, not wanting to leave Helen Keller’s side because we’re so busy talking about socialism, going all over the place in Africa and learning all about stuff I never would have found out about otherwise because I live in White Bread, USA, and we didn’t learn shit about Africa other than that it’s there (mythology! science! sociology! GIVE IT TO ME!); taking me to Japan when it was cut off from the rest of the word for a couple centuries or so so I can see the really cool mathematical puzzle boards they used to hang up in temples so everybody in town could come and try to solve them …
Honestly, I think the Doctor would get tired of me, because he’d be like, “Don’t you want to go ahead in time, or to another planet?” and I’d just be like, “But this one’s so awesome!”
But I’d get the show finales out of the way first, because I don’t buy for a minute that any of those pairings are “endgame” and it’d be nice to have conformation one way or another. (SPN may not end in my lifetime and it feels like they’ll be making Sherlock until Bendeict can play old Sherlock like Ian McKellen will be, so. *shrugs*)
Distractions out of the way first, history dork funsies second.
teen wolf fandom actually made a petition for the cast and crew to stop “disrespecting the fans” lol remember that time you sent death threats to tyler posey because he said he doesn’t like stiles/derek and his mom saw them? or how you tried to make a petition to get shelley hennig off the show? or how meagan tandy has to constantly go on twitter to defend herself and her character because people send her hate? or how you all made #killallison a worldwide trend???? :)
