Happy pride month to the tiny cowboy and tiny Trojan man from Night at the Museum
For anyone who doesn’t know what’s going on in Canada right now (which, let’s be real, is probably everyone who’s not in Canada):
This week, a mass grave was discovered at a former Indian Residential School, in Kamloops, BC. The grave contained the bodies of 215 Indigenous children.
For people outside of North America, residential schools were places that Indigenous children were sent to, to have their language and culture stripped away from them. They were literally stolen from their families, and scattered across Canada, to ensure that they would be surrounded by children who didn’t speak their language. They were given Christian names and forced to speak English. They were horrendously abused, and the survivors have been traumatized.
Hundreds of children never returned. The assumption has always been that they died. This has now been confirmed.
The school in Kamloops closed in 1978. They are now trying to identify bodies to inform family members. The last residential school closed in the 1990s. There is growing demand to search all of them, but the government hasn’t responded to that, as of yet. Ottawa JUST gave in to pressure to fly the Canada flag at half mast. They weren’t even going to do that.
This is the reality if anti-Indigenous racism in Canada. The residential schools may be closed, but that hasn’t stopped the abduction of Indigenous children, let alone the hundreds of missing and murdered Indigenous women.
ok ok ok SO
yes i haven’t updated anything in awhile. i really should have just put shit on hiatus instead of trusting my brain.

adhd you fool
Now that college students no longer have access to their libraries in the same way we used to and have to do most of our learning at home it would be just terrible if we all knew about https://1lib.eu/ a website which has books on basically every topic ever available for free including college textbooks. Imagine if people were researching their thesis without paying for it.
DO NOT USE THIS SITE AND DEFINITELY DO NOT NOT TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT THIS SITE, THEY MIGHT START DOING THESIS RESEARCH FOR FREE OR JUST START READING BOOKS THEY FOUND ON THERE FOR FUN BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE INTERESTING. This would be terrible :( :(
Reblog to spread the word so that everyone knows to avoid this site!
Hey everyone they have NOT moved to:
Do NOT enter this url to find free books :)
look its great and all that the CDC says we can take off masks but my anxiety over being perceived as an anti-masker is a stronger power and i will be submitting to it
i have come to the realization that i can’t actually be productive right now because my brain is having a hard time going from
quick do the work right now or you’ll fail and have to move to Iowa to compensate for all of your mistakes and then die via failing a class
(aka school brain in a nutshell)
oh cool summer i can sleep normally now and actually do things
hey so if someone (yes this includes your children) doesn’t want their picture taken???
THEN DON’T TAKE THE FUCKING PHOTO
hey hey! don’t do this!
i’ve seen a lot of people in the notes say like “well i just enjoy it even though other people don’t like it,” but that’s not what i mean, i mean like when they flat out say that what i like is stupid.
i much prefer if they said “that’s not really my thing, but glad it makes you happy!” because what happens is this
then slowly like you start to think “maybe it is stupid” and it takes away all the fun of just enjoying something that makes you happy and it’s not a good feeling
I’m not sure what I want more
mcsweeten being in leverage redemption and still having not a clue that parker and hardison are, in fact, not federal agents and are actually world-class criminals
or at some point between the finale and now he did find out, and then some government official gets wind of one of their heists and is jabbing their finger at a blurry image of parker and hardison mid-thievery and with a completely straight face, mcsweeten explains that guys, those are agents hagen and thomas and they are working on an undercover op and were in no way at all involved of what is inconveniencing the government now
and the government official keeps trying to explain they are criminals but mcsweeten just pulls up their dossiers and credentials and he can literally see the vein throbbing in the man’s forehead but he just smiles says that he has personally worked with agent hagen and would trust her with his life
hiya! i just read your WandaVision one-shot and i loved it, I don’t see much of Darcy and this felt really realistic! i’d like to request something similar, with Jimmy-Monica-Darcy being besties, especially after episode 6. hopefully something centering around Darcy and her getting sucked into the hex, maybe after she gets out and finds herself a lil scared of everything. thank you so much!
Ended up making this a Part Two for Needles, this is turning to a whole blown fic isn’t it?
god i’m sorry this took so long blame adhd
Darcy was not able to set Hayward on fire.
She did get him arrested though, so she could live with that.
Darcy had done her best to avoid the debrief, but Jimmy eventually tracked her down and dragged her back.
“I know you don’t want to but we need more information on what happened inside the Hex from someone we know isn’t actively lying to us.”
“Ok, so ask Monica.”
“We need information from more than one person.”
“I’ll buy you coffee?”
Jersey didn’t have terrible coffee.
Like, Darcy had had worse, she thought, sipping the mug Jimmy had put in front of her. They were having dinner in a place off the highway (major dejavu) and he had scribbled out all of his notes in a little pad that had been in his pocket. It was a grandpa notepad. Monica stared into her own cup of coffee, tagging along with the other two in an odd sort of haze.
Something had happened that the woman wasn’t talking about and Darcy wasn’t sure if she wanted to know.
“Do you think Wanda is ok?”
Darcy turns to look at Monica who’s still staring into her coffee cup.
“I mean, she’s pretty powerful I think she can handle herself,” Jimmy says with a nod, “Yeah, Wanda is probably all right.”
“She’s still suffering. And now she’s alone,” Monica says with a sigh, “I want to help her but I think my schedule just got booked. Indefinitely.”
“We could look for her,” Jimmy says, giving Darcy a hopeful look.
“I kinda have a job Jimbo.”
“You’ve been unemployed for six months and it’s not even because of the blip.”
“How does he know that?”
“Look, someone does need to look for her,” Jimmy says, giving them both a look, “I don’t think the government is the best option right now given…uh…all that. Everything. The Hex incident in general,” he says, with a flourish of his arms, “It’d be completely off book. I’ve got friends who could get us transportation and supplies, we could get set up somewhere easy.”
“It sounds like you’re proposing a road trip,” Darcy says, balling up her straw wrapper, “Didn’t know you liked me that much Jimmy.”
“I’ve worked with worse people. Besides, it’s more of a ‘find someone who is capable of dealing with this’ trip.”
“Doctor Strange?” Monica says, sitting up, “He’s definitely capable of helping her.”
“Both have the Hogwarts vibe going on, I dig it!” Darcy says with a grin, sticking her straw in her mouth and blowing the wrapper at Jimmy’s face.
“You have a PHD,” he says, just staring at her, “And here we are.”
“You’ve never met someone with a Doctorate have you? Ninety percent of us just…don’t give a fuck anymore dude.”
“So your plan is go off the grid, find Strange, and hope for the best?” Monica asks with a grin.
“The road is the best therapy,” Darcy says, spreading her arms wide, “And I’m too broke to afford the real thing so I’m calling it the next best thing!”
Monica laughs, “Well sounds like I know where I’ll be until I’m officially called in. A road trip sounds…nice.”
“I still don’t think it’s technically a road trip…” Jimmy says, standing out of the booth, “But it’s not Westview so I’m not complaining.”
Darcy lets out a cheer and jumps over the back of the booth. “Let’s go slowpoke! Wizard hunting time!”
i think nate’s not in the leverage reboot cause timothy hutton has rape allegations :(
well thats lovely/s and totally understandable, if hes going to be a trash human being then absolutely kick him to the curb
ok ok ok ok guys
i’m fairly certain most people at this point in our lives, would look at a genie offering them wishes with a hell of a lot of suspicion (at least I hope you will). we’ve adapted, so that troupe/life lesson/event doesn’t hold as much potency. we know we about to be tricked.
but what if the genies are adapting to?
consider: a genie offering you troupes.
Fan fic authors are not professional writers.
Expecting them to be perfect and never make mistakes is setting yourself up to be an asshole.
Do you know how long it takes to write and publish a 60k novel for most published authors? Years. Plural.
That includes time spent writing multiple drafts and doing research and multiple rounds of edits. Access to a professional editor, and the ability to hire sensitivity readers. The list goes on and on and on.
Fan fic authors owe you nothing. They are churning out multiple novel length fics (or the equivalent in one shots) a year while still holding down school/jobs.
And you’re gonna jump down their throats because they wrote a pairing differently than you prefer??
Shut the fuck up.
Tags exists for a reason. Read them and move on if the fic is not for you.
I mean really. We all just lived through fucking 2020. Let people enjoy their FAKE gay porn in peace.
This is so real.
I saw a post going around about how “fanfic authors don’t accept critique anymore”
And it’s like?
Imagine you bake a batch of cookies and you take it to the office to share with your co-workers.
And then someone just sits down and it’s like “Ah, the flavour profile is not quite proper. See, you should have added the brown sugar *after* the flour, and”
And it’s like? Just eat the fucking cookie, Mike, and shut the fuck up. lmao
A hobby doesn’t need critique. You don’t even need to be good at it.
Let people have fun on the internet, for god’s sake.
just eat the fucking cookie, mike

Friendly reminder that we cannot bully any of the kids auditioning for the role of Percy. They are 12 year olds and we need to be kind and supportive to each and every one. We can, however, bully all the adults working at disney
and absolutely should
