There's such a sad love
Deep in your eyes.
A kind of pale jewel
Open and closed
Within your eyes.
I'll place the sky
Within your eyes.

In Defense of Emma Swan

So I’m not having a good day and I wrote this on my phone so any typos are because of that.  And I heard some stuff that sorta got stuck in my craw and I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I wrote this.  And it got really long.  Kudos to you if you read it all.

ALL. OF. THIS.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: AUSTRALIA

Originally located in Arnhem Land, The Australian College of Sorcery and Witchcraft was a sprawling campus of large huts that eventually coalesced into one single structure. The college detached from mainland Australia soon after British settlement in order maintain their practices and culture. Ever since, the school has been drifting haphazardly in the ocean, although it never strays far from the Australian coast for ancient magic keeps the school tethered to Australian soil. Every year, a team of witches and wizards must be employed to anchor the floating campus so students don’t have to go on a cat-and-mouse chase at the beginning of the year in order to attend school (a frustrating endeavour which often results in the postponing of classes due to a large number of absences). To students’ great enjoyment, various creatures (including the occasional mermaid) can often be found sunbathing around the perimeter of the campus which gently slopes into the water. Due to their exposure to unusually friendly oceanic creatures, the college boasts incredibly extensive courses in aquatic-life studies, and is held in high esteem by the international wizarding community for its innovations in water magic. 

#YOU DO REALISE WE HAVE TOWNS AND STUFF RIGHT #LIKE ROADS AND HOUSES AND BUILDINGS AND EVEYTHING

I am aware of that—I’m not that ignorant. But in case this wasn’t clear in the blurb, the school came into being long before the British even settled in Australia. This is a school that was built by the Aboriginals (A LOT TIME AGO!). They didn’t live in houses and buildings, so it wouldn’t have made sense for them to build houses or buildings for the school. Here is an article on traditional housing, and here is another one. Noticed how they, for the most part, lived in domed shelters? I am well aware that Australians don’t presently live in huts (I hope the girl who wrote ‘I love how people still think we live in huts’ sees this). I wrote ‘huts’ in the blurb to remain true to Aboriginal lifestyles.

another thing I didn’t like about the harry potter movies: in the photos, they made harry’s parents look so old, in their mid-30s or even early 40s, when in the books they were 21 goddamn years old when they died

they were kids, they had just gotten married, they were in their college years, they were so young and the movies didn’t show that and I think that’s sad.

Wow, so I cannot draw.

That’s alright though. I’m more of a writer. And I have a story to tell.

I have always been disabled. However, up until eight years ago, I could still walk, run, skip, jump, etc. In November 2006, I had a surgery that left me almost paralyzed. I could walk short distances but had to spend the rest of my time in a wheelchair. I was scared and confused. I didn’t know what to do. One day, I turned on the small television in my hospital room and realized that there was an Avatar marathon on. Now, you must understand. I’ve watched Avatar since I was in the fourth grade – when the very first episode came out! So I sat back and eagerly watched the marathon, whispering the dialogue and humming along to the music. When The Northern Air Temple came on, I sat in stunned silence. I had forgotten all about Teo! Here was an epic, well-written, character who just so happened to be disabled! Even better, he was a character who didn’t let his disability define him! By the time I reached The Blind Bandit, I was grinning from ear-to-ear as I watched Toph take down the group of wrestlers.

Toph and Teo are two of the best characters with disabilities that I’ve ever seen. Both are shown to have their limitations. Nevertheless, they’re both mentally, emotionally, and physically strong! And most importantly, they overcome their limitations! Teo can still fly around with the rest of his friends and is able to protect his home when the time comes. Toph is still able to travel around with the Avatar and has proven herself to be an excellent fighter and the greatest earthbender in the world!

To me, it was as if these fictional characters were saying, “You can do this! Don’t listen to anyone who says otherwise. What do they know!?”

And eight years later, it seem that the tables have turned.

A large part of the Avatar fandom seems to be taking the news that Korra’s in a wheelchair very badly. I’ve seen so many depressing and nasty comments. Many people are wondering how the Avatar can still fight and keep balance while being in a wheelchair.

And every time I see someone comment about how Korra “can’t do this” I just smile and think, “Yes, she can.”

Once you get this, you have to say 5 things you like about yourself, publicly, then send this to 10 of your favourite followers!
asked by starry-nightt

Aw, thank you!

  1. I have amazing hair, and I know it. It’s the “I wake up and it still looks great/does whatever I want it to do/never tangles” hair. I’m pretty sure it’s made of magic.
  2. I have the incredible ability to find the best deal on anything out there. Not couponer-level good, but it’s still pretty great.
  3. I will always give somebody the last and/or biggest piece of any shared food, even if I really want it for myself. Even if it’s chocolate.
  4. I can bake. Sorry, I mentioned chocolate in the last point and I started thinking about cupcakes.
  5. I’m almost 30, but I can still hold not-entirely awkward conversations with the younger generation. I haven’t reached the “new technology is scary/social media is the end of life as we know it” that some in my peer-group have. I like that I’ve more or less adapted with the times.

little—devotional:

Seth Green did an interview with Vulture and the last question they asked him was about the mass nude photo leak and I’ve put his response above. Of all the reactions to the photo hack, I think his is my favorite—because he outlines perfectly not only what was wrong with the scandal, but what I believe is wrong with society today in general. 

Man I hope he’s right, that people are inherently decent and just need to be educated on why this stuff is so wrong. But I have my doubts.

Mega Buzz: Captain Swan

storybrookemirror:

What will Emma and Hook’s dating life be like on Once Upon a Time? — Val
The good news: The producers are going to let them go out somewhere other than Granny’s Diner. The bad news: “It’s going to be tricky for the two of them,” executive producer Adam Horowitz says. “Just because we saw their feelings reach a new level at the end of last season doesn’t mean that that’s the end of the story.” And Emma may be the problem. “Emma is obviously a person who has a tough time trusting people and letting her guard down,” executive producer Edward Kitsis says. “Sometimes you may feel something for somebody but your feelings hold you back.”

hey :) that person who wrote that article bashing Jen apparently is actually part of the "press" and even had access to the OUAT Comic Con press room. Do you have any suggestions on how to let ABC Publicity know that a member of the press is harassing the lead actress? I found a couple of email addresses on the ABC Medianet page, but is there something else we can do?

ihearttvsnark:

Hi. I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to publish this because I see a lot of people talking about similar things on my dash.

I know this probably sounds harsh, but ABC is not going to care. They’ve seen the article because it’s publicity’s job to read each and every article written about their show. I haven’t actually read the article because I don’t want to give them another hit, but from what I understand, it’s an opinion piece. And as gross as the opinion sounds, it’s still an opinion and it will be treated as such.

ABC has no control over which press sites Comic Con gives access to - that’s up to the Comic Con organizers. I doubt Jen’s people would ever agree to let these people interview her exclusively after this, but the more people talk about the article and link to it and comment on it - the more money the site is going to make off of it so basically giving it attention is just playing into the person’s hands.

Everyone sending love to Jen on Twitter last night - that’s the kind of positive action that should be taken. Ignore the person who wrote the article, ignore the site, stop giving them hits, boycott HuffPo (which has fallen so much over the past few years). Tell ABC Publicity how much you love the show, the actors, the characters - use positive feedback to overshadow the negative.

Nothing hurts haters more than happiness and fun.
