If I don’t need to know much about Teen Wolf, I can do it for you!

Are you familiar with season 3A at all? It draws mostly on information from that period of the show.

Er… maybe I should have said “If I don’t need to know anything about Teen Wolf…” I’ve never actually seen the show, I’ve just read a few fics and absorbed some info about it from my tumblr dash…

:D I wondered. I didn’t think I’d ever seen you reblog or post anything about Teen Wolf.

Thanks for offering, though.

I get to post my ARBB in just over a week. I should probably have it beta-read.

Anyone interested in doing a quick beta on my Avengers/Teen Wolf fusion fic?

The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.

THAT’S THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR OWNING EVERYTHING

(via queerfabulousmermaid)

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

I probably reblogged in the past, but here it is again in that case.

“But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!”

"I get ribbed for that line because it was so whiny. And I remember at the time, I had to make it as juvenile as possible so that I can show how Luke matures later. So it should be embarrassing. It should be whiny and childish. But boy, has it come back to haunt me. I don’t think I ever got the chance to finally pick them up." - Mark Hamill

i've got five different Phlint tags on my blacklist and yet I still have to see that shit on my dash because you are not consistent about how you tag. Can you please be a bit more consistent? the pairing has trigger potential for me and if you can't do it, i will have to unfollow

I certainly apologize for that. “Pliny” was not my intended tag. I’m sorry it’s so triggering for you, and I’m sorry you felt being rude was the way to go about asking me to fix it.

Why you gotta be so ruuuude (anon)

Now I really want to know how it’s triggering for them. 

Right is it the white thing? Maybe the gay? Is it the middle aged thing? There are a few aus. Maybe it’s the handsome thing they can’t stand handsome men.

(I honestly hope it’s a troll, how can a ship be triggering? What’s so triggering about Phil and Clint? Do they even know the medical definition of triggers?)

Maybe it’s the possibility of a power imbalance? In a lot of fics, Phil is in a position of authority over Clint.

Now I’m curious…
