Milo Manara is a fuck boy but did he inadvertently say Muslims respect women more than Marvel does?

has anyone seen this reddit post about EL James “betraying” the Twilight fandom and profiting off of someone else’s fanfic basically 

http://www.reddit.com/r/TwoXChromosomes/comments/2byz2l/many_women_do_not_agree_with_me_on_this_subject/cjaqvmi

what i like about it is the part where it mentions that the next charity auction made way less money bc a lot of fanfic authors decided they wanted to try and make money too, but the way it’s phrased is like this poster believes that’s a bad thing.

phrased another way, it could be: “EL James’ success inspired a lot of other women fanfic authors to try and profit off of their work, too, instead of the fandom ‘default’, which is to donate all proceeds to charity. EL James showed a lot of women that the idea that women writers should not profit off of their own work is fucking bullshit.”

You know what would be great? If there was a “hide this story” option on Ao3, the way you can block posts on tumblr with xkit. Just, “this story is in my pairing’s tag when they literally do not even look at each other. Don’t show me this shit anymore.”

That’d be nice.

I would really dig this. Particularly for small pairings, where the fics you describe might make up a noticeable chunk of the fics listed. Or if you read a fic and get hurt by something that was not tagged! And you’re grumpy enough that you want something firmer than back-buttoning or closing the tab! 

No, fic! You have deceived me! I cast you out!! [clicks ‘hide this story’ button]

American Claims Disputed Region of Northeastern Africa For His Daughter.
An American national from Abingdon, Virginia, one Jeremiah Heaton, has reportedly trekked to an area between Egypt and Sudan to claim the disputed region for his 7-year-old daughter so that she could be a real-life princess.
Apparently, his daughter Emily has a fixation with princess and in order to satisfy her fantasy of some day being royalty, Heaton carried out some research and happened upon an area known as Bir Tawil. The region remains officially unclaimed as it has long been disputed by both Egypt and Sudan. With that, Heaton got permission from the Egyptian government to travel to the area in June where he then planted the flag of the ‘Heaton Kingdom’ on the unclaimed piece of land. which now makes her “Princess Emily of the Kingdom of North Sudan” - a name Heaton and his family came up with.
About the process, Heaton said, “I feel confident in the claim we’ve made,” Heaton said. “That’s the exact same process that has been done for thousands of years. The exception is this nation was claimed for love.” He also said that he does intend to “pursue formal recognition with African nations”, starting with Egypt and Sudan.
What does he plan to do with the area? Heaton says his three children will be the facilitators of the area and have expressed wanting to “turn North Sudan into an agricultural hub for the area.”
At the moment, he has no political control over the area - at least not until he gets legal recognition from the United Nations and other neighbouring countries. The area has been the subject of various claims and is also partially inhabited by local populations such as the Bedoiun which could result in further disputes. But Heaton believes that because he trekked to the area, did so out of love and wants to turn the area into a “a nation with a clear purpose of helping other people”, his claim will be well received by other nations.

I bought ten nail polishes today, plus a Revlon duo. I’m thinking that maybe sometime soon I should sort through my collection and give some away.

And maybe I should stop buying nail polish :/

So, Viber has a sticker set for April Fool’s Day out. Please do not prank people by toying with their emotions. 

gnomingabout:

you don’t have to write about sex in your fanfic. it’s not a requirement, don’t let anyone tell you it is. your ship doesn’t have to be physical to be intimate. if you want to write fluffy one shots, you make those fangirls squeal. if you want to write angsty heart breakers, bring on the tears. write what you love and what you’re comfortable with. but never let those comments people make, about how T and G rated fics aren’t worth their time, sway your inspiration.

Ughhh you're right! I'm sorry again, I had it totally wrong about Cas :( I think fanon grabs onto how Cas is legit naive about like human culture and emotions (all the 'I don't understand that reference' stuff) and exaggerates it/bleeds it into the rest of his characterization somehow... and I fell for it too. Hmm.

You don’t need to apologize! This is very widespread, to the point where this version of Cas has replaced the canon version in some places. 

I don’t think Cas is all that naive about human culture and emotions. Inexperienced in some aspects, but that is not the same as being naive.

Not understanding a reference is not naivety. There are cultural differences that might lead to missing references, but this is not the same as being childlike or naive. If I miss a reference to a tv show from the 70s, it doesn’t make me naive or childlike. It means I’m not familiar with that cultural artifact due to my age and experience. If I don’t get etiquette in certain situations (say, a black tie dinner), it means I grew up in an environment with different etiquette and expectations, it doesn’t mean I’m naive.

I think there are a couple (as in less than a handful over 5 seasons) examples of Cas behaving in what might be seen as naive ways. But somehow these few VERY FEW examples are taken as the whole of his character, when 95% of the rest of the time he is as far from childlike/naive as you can get.

Dude is thousands of years old and a warrior of God. Reducing him to childlike and naive is erasing most of his character. I’m not sure why this fanon has developed, but it’s had a real impact on various interpretations not only of the character but canon events.
