Fuck Yeah Women of Color
Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares.
One of my favorite twitter exchanges
heres a tip if you want your feminism to be genuinely inclusive stop equating breasts, periods, XX chromosomes with femininity because a lot of women dont have these things and a lot of men and nonbinary people do have these things
Tomorrow!!! Storm #4!!! Looks so good!
This book needs every dollar it can get. We asked for Storm to have her own book for years, Marvel delivers, and now by issue 3 its sales were already near the cancellation line. Now I’ve said many times before that you can’t judge sales until you get to issue 4 since it takes three months for retailers to order their books so that’s how far it takes for them to say “Oh that’s how well it’s selling? Well then I better order this many.” But still, the fact that by issue 3 its sells are that low means retailers didn’t have faith in this book, and retailers can be pretty stubborn. So if you want this book to succeed then you need to go and in a great number show them that you want to read this book.
I’m not kidding at all when I say I’ll be incredibly disappointed by all of you if Storm gets cancelled. And I will express my disappointment in a very vocal, very loud way.
I buy 2 copies of this book at every comic book store I go to. I’m trying man
Typing an essay due tomorrow at 3 in the morning
I hate to break this to you but there are lesbian relationships that involve penis because there are trans lesbians with penises. There are lesbian relationships where everyone has penises in them.
Sorry* to burst your transmisogynist bubble.
*Lol, I’m not sorry.
There’s thousands of notes on posts about how unfair it is that there isn’t a wonder woman movie and now that its been officially announced nobody is talking about it?
Like Can I get at least a hell yeah?
More like we’re now worried that it might be as terrible as the recent Man of Steel movie was, and we’re coming to terms with how we can plan to cope with such a highly likely circumstance, because DC films lately haven’t exactly conveyed complex characters very well be they female or male.
This is all me.
I’m not even in college yet but all this shit applies
Not sure why but this is how my phone took a picture of lightning
Looks like it took half of this world, and half of a dark world.
It’s so rad and creepy, gives the spook chills
Science side here: The flash coming off of the lightning is very fast. Your phonecamera’s shutter actually takes the photo from side to side. The flash of lightning (or perhaps another lightning) struck while it was in the middle of photographing, leaving half of the photo being from before the flash, and the other half during it.
Science Fiction side here: What really happened was a tear in the fabric of reality. During that fraction of second you camera was able to pierce through the veil that separate this dimension from the mirror-image one, also known as mirror universe. Your alternate self probably did the same, at the same time. You alternate self also has a goatee and/or an eyepatch.
I rarely ever do posts like this, but I feel like this will really matter to some people.
AO3 is asking for some money, to keep the organization going. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE ao3. There probably hasn’t been a day I haven’t been on it in the last two years, I and seriously doubt there is anyone who reads fanfiction and doesn’t know of this wonderful site.
Now clearly, one could say there are better causes to put your money to, especially on a site like tumblr. But for some people, fanfiction and fanart is their escape, I’ve read lots of stories about people being depressed and then finding out about certain ships and then becoming much happier people, and personally, fanfiction is the reason I started making friends through the internet and connecting with people because of what I love.
So all I’m asking is, that if you’ve ever seen a fanwork on ao3, smiled at fluff, or ogled at a particularly smutty fan art, try to give just a little bit of money to this site. And if not, try to spread the word like I am! I’m not a staff member or anything, I just am a fan that really wants to let this site know how much we as fandoms love and appreciate what they are doing. So please, please, please, reblog this, or click one of the links below to help out!
Thanks so much!
SIGNAL BOOST! This site, unlike others I shall not name, does NOT limit what you can write, if you can imagine it, they allow it!
oh my god
70,000 USD does seem like a lot, which is why many of our users may be surprised to find out that in 2015, the OTW will need 75,000 USD just to replace old servers and expand capacity! The OTW’s annual budget for 2014 is 221,863.44 USD, and 70% of that goes directly to servers, collation, and staff development for AO3. The remaining 30% of our 2014 budget funds Fanlore, Legal Advocacy, Open Doors, and Transformative Works and Cultures; covers administrative costs; allows for outreach and membership development (such as our thank you gifts and shipping); and provides opportunities for professional development and training for personnel. All of these things help the OTW protect and celebrate fans and fan culture.
I find it amazing that people think that’s a lot of money to ask. It’s incredibly expensive to fund such heavily used and non ad supported websites, and that before anyone even gets paid for their work. I am definitely donating what I can to this drive, and I hope if you have a few dollars spare and benefit from Archive of Our Own, or any of their projects you will consider donating as well.
