“The romantic thing about the darkness was always the constant pull towards the light.”

Yup. And I do.
That entierly depends on your viewpoint on him, Anon.
Saying ‘Hircine is evil’ is hard just like saying he isnt, is as well. Hircine is the Father of Manbeasts, the Huntman, but also the Prince of Sportsmanship. Hircine is the fairest of all princes- he does not look to deviece and he has no interest in playing with mortals, unless they seek his favour or become subject of his hunts. Hircine does not take kindly to deception and punishes accordingly- but he will always applaud the prey for putting up a fair fight or even turing the hunt on the hunters.
He claims all souls of mortals inflcited with Lycantrophy, willing or not- but accepting his gift and using his powers is something he applauds- he does not however state HOW one has to use their werebeast powers. Nowhere has Hircine said you had to do evil as a werebeast, you just have to hunt- but what you hunt is up to you.
For one you could say the Blood Moon, the great Hunt, is in its definition evil. A prey is selected and hunted no matter what- but it is given a fair chance still. Hircine unleashes the thousands of werebeast souls in his realm back onto Nirn which most definitely is a catastropic and evil event. There are casualties but- the true goal is the prey, not the torment of mortals or destruction of nirn.
Some of Hircine’s cults are very, very evil- but which Daedras cults aren’t. There are cults that stage manhunts, hunting down slaves or the poor and sick, as ‘mer and men are the highest prey’ to them. Hircine does not take stance on mortals killing each other in his name- all that matters to him is that there is a hunt taking place, and he rewards the hunters if they succeed to kill- or rewards the prey for escaping.
So- is Hircine in any way evil? Not by definition, no. But he is unrelentingly fair. You play his game by his rules and if you succeed you will be rewarded, but if you loose? Well, that’s on you.
Soundwave had been acting strangely all day.
Normally the drone kept to his station while he was aboard the Nemesis, more interested in monitoring the activities of the eradicons and his fellow decepticons than making nonverbal conversation.
Today, he seemed intent on hovering over you instead. The normally space-sensitive mech had been stealing touches from you all day. A servo on your shoulder there, an accidental touch to your back here.
Now you knew why he seemed so strange. The drone mech was holding you steady with his tentacle arms as he pumped his spike into you from behind.
You had no doubt that the quiet mech had entered his rut.
You could feel his grip tighten and his pace falter as he overloaded in you for the fourth time. For a moment he pulled away, and you wondered briefly if he had finished his rut so soon.
Then he flipped you around and held your legs apart, taking in the view and admiring his handiwork.
He let his servos slide up your hips to rest over your abdomen, pressing just against your gestation tank as he looked into your eyes with a wordless request.
One nod and he was sliding his spike back inside, hands unmoving against your abdomen as he started back with punishing pace that had his spike nudging your oversensitive ceiling node within moments.
A roll of charge crested through him and into you, and you felt the entrance to your gestation chamber iris open in response.
He didn’t even stop this time. He simply pressed as deep as he could and kept going, determined to flood you with as much transfluid as you could hold.

rivergst :The number of people I know who romanticize gender inequality is frankly terrifying. A world never existed in which the lives of women were simplified by benevolent men who saw to her every want and need. That was not a thing. A world never existed in which women were all ladies, men were all gentlemen, & everything was some great big cishet fairytale. Feminists aren’t a bunch of upstarts who want to destroy a perfectly wholesome and non-harmful system. Just…look at history. Look at the posts above. We. Must. Resist..
- Open a bank account or get a credit card without signed permission from her father or hr husband.
- Serve on a jury - because it might inconvenience the family not to have the woman at home being her husband’s helpmate.
- Obtain any form of birth control without her husband’s permission. You had to be married, and your hub and had to agree to postpone having children.
- Get an Ivy League education. Ivy League schools were men’s colleges ntil the 70′s and 80′s. When they opened their doors to women it was agree that women went there for their MRS. Degee.
- Experience equality in the workplace: Kennedy’s Commission on the Status of Women produced a report in 1963 that revealed, among other things, that women earned 59 cents for every dollar that men earned and were kept out of the more lucrative professional positions.
- Keep her job if she was pregnant.Until the Pregnancy Discrimination Act in 1978, women were regularly fired from their workplace for being pregnant.
- Refuse to have sex with her husband.The mid 70s saw most states recognize marital rape and in 1993 it became criminalized in all 50 states. Nevertheless, marital rape is still often treated differently to other forms of rape in some states even today.
- Get a divorce with some degree of ease.Before the No Fault Divorce law in 1969, spouses had to show the faults of the other party, such as adultery, and could easily be overturned by recrimination.
- Have a legal abortion in most states.The Roe v. Wade case in 1973 protected a woman’s right to abortion until viability.
- Take legal action against workplace sexual harassment. According to The Week, the first time a court recognized office sexual harassment as grounds for legal action was in 1977.
- Play college sports Title IX of the Education Amendments of protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance It was nt until this statute that colleges had teams for women’s sports
- Apply for men’s Jobs The EEOC rules that sex-segregated help wanted ads in newspapers are illegal. This ruling is upheld in 1973 by the Supreme Court, opening the way for women to apply for higher-paying jobs hitherto open only to men.
This is why we needed feminism - this is why we know that feminism works
I just want to reiterate this stuff, because I legit get the feeling there are a lot of younger women for whom it hasn’t really sunk in what it is today’s GOP is actively trying to return to.
Did you go to a good college? Shame on you, you took a college placement that could have gone to a man who deserves and needs it to support or prepare for his wife & children. But if you really must attend college, well, some men like that, you can still get married if you focus on finding the right man.
Got a job? Why? A man could be doing that job. You should be at home caring for a family. You shouldn’t be taking that job away from a man who needs it (see college, above). You definitely don’t have a career – you’ll be pregnant and raising children soon, so no need to worry about promoting you.
This shit was within living memory. I’M A MILLENIAL and my mother was in the second class that allowed women at an Ivy League school. Men who are alive today either personally remember shit like this or have parents/family who have raised them into thinking this was the way America functioned back in the blissful Good Old Days. There are literally dudes in the GOP old enough to remember when it was like this and yearn for those days to return.
When people talk about resisting conservativism and the GOP, we’re not just talking about whether the wage gap is a myth or not. We’re talking about whether women even have the fundamental right to exist as individuals, to run their own households and compete for jobs and be considered on an equal footing with men in any arena at all in the first place.
I was a child in the 1960s, a teenager in the 1970s, a young adult in the 1980s.
This is what it was like:
When I was growing up, it was considered unfortunate if a girl was good at sports. Girls were not allowed in Little League. Girls’ teams didn’t exist in high school, except at all-girls’ high schools. Boys played sports, and girls were the cheerleaders.
People used to ask me as a child what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said I wanted to be a brain surgeon or the first woman justice on the Supreme Court. Everyone told me it was impossible–those just weren’t realistic goals for a girl–the latter, especially, because you couldn’t trust women to judge fairly and rationally, after all.
In the 1960s and 1970s, all women were identified by their marital status, even in arrest reports and obituaries. In elementary school, my science teacher referred to Pierre Curie as DOCTOR Curie and Marie Curie as MRS. Curie…because, as he put it, “she was just his wife.” (Both had doctorates and both were Nobel prize winners, so you would think that both would be accorded respect.)
Companies could and did require women to wear dresses and skirts. Failure to do could and did get women fired. And it was legal. It was also legal to fire women for getting married or getting pregnant. The rationale was that a woman who was married or who had a child had no business working; that was what her husband was for. Aetna Insurance, the biggest insurance company in America, fired women for all of the above.
A man could rape his wife. Legally. I can remember being twelve years old and reading about legal experts actually debating whether or not a man could actually be said to coerce his wife into having sex. This was a serious debate in 1974.
The debate about marital rape came up in my law school, too, in 1984. Could a woman be raped by her husband? The guys all said no–a woman got married, so she was consenting to sex at all times. So I turned it around. I asked them if, since a man had gotten married, that meant that his wife could shove a dildo or a stick or something up his ass any time she wanted to for HER sexual pleasure.
(Hey, I thought it was reasonable. If one gender was legally entitled to force sex on the other, then obviously the reverse should also be true.)
The male law students didn’t like the idea. Interestingly, they commented that being treated like that would make them feel like a woman.
My reaction was, “Thank you for proving my point…”
The concept of date rape, when first proposed, was considered laughable. If a woman went out on a date, the argument of legal experts ran, sexual consent was implied. Even more sickening was the fact that in some states–even in the early 1980s–a man could rape his daughter…and it was no worse than a misdemeanor.
Women taking self-defense classes in the 1970s and 1980s were frequently described in books and on TV as “cute.” The implication was that it was absurd for a woman to attempt to defend herself, but wasn’t it just adorable for her to try?
I was expressly forbidden to take computer classes in junior and senior years of high school–1978-79 and 1979-80–because, as the principal told me, “Only boys have to know that kind of thing. You girls are going to get married, and you won’t use it.”
When I was in college–from 1980 to 1984–there were no womens’ studies. The idea hadn’t occurred in many places because the presumption was that there was nothing TO study. My history professor–a man who had a doctorate in history–informed me quite seriously that women had never produced a noted painter, sculptor, composer, architect or scientist because…wait for it…womens’ brains were too small.
(He was very surprised when I came up with a list of fifty women gifted in the arts and science, most of whom he had never heard of before.)
When Walter Mondale picked Geraldine Ferraro as a running mate in 1984, the press hailed it as a disaster. What would happen, they asked fearfully, if Mondale died and Ferraro became president? What if an international crisis arose and she was menstruating? She could push the nuclear button in a fit of PMS! It would be the end of the WORLD!!
…No, they WEREN’T kidding.
On the surface, things are very different now than they were when I was a child, a teen and a young adult. But I’m afraid that people now do not realize what it was like then. I’ve read a lot of posts from young women who say that they are not feminists. If the only exposure to feminism they have is the work of extremists, I cannot blame them overmuch.
I wish that I could tell them what feminism was like when it was new–when the dream of legal equality was just a dream, and hadn’t even begun to come true. When “woman’s work” was a sneer–and an overt putdown. When people tut-tutted over bright and athletic girls with the words, “Really, it’s a shame she’s not a boy.” That lack of feminism wasn’t all men opening doors and picking up checks. A lot of it was an attitude of patronizing contempt that hasn’t entirely died out, but which has become less publicly acceptable.
I wish I could make them feel what it was like…when grown men were called “men” and grown women were “girls.”
Know your history.
So this, too, is what they mean saying “make America great again” and/or the good old days.
I am 70. I remember all those things. I was a student nurse from 64 to 67 and we were not permitted to “finish” a bed bath on a male or insert a catheter in a male. Seeing male genitals might cause us “harm” or upset our delicate sensibilities. Imagine when we graduated and were “thrown” to the wolves. Imagine if you were a male patient who had to be the first to be “practiced” on by a graduate nurse. (Ha!) At the school I attended no student nurse could be married. Only one school in my city (Atlanta) would even admit married women and Male Nurses weren’t even thought of. What man would want to be a nurse when he could be a Doctor. In all my training I only remember 3 or 4 Women who were Doctor’s and a very few, (less than 5 or 6) female interns or residents (and this was a teaching hospital) and most of those were OB/Gyns and one was a pediatrician.
When I graduated and was going to get married I wanted to go on birth control pills. You needed to be on them for a least one cycle before they were effective. I won’t go into what hoops I had to jump through to get a prescription from my Dr. (a man, natch) but when i went to the drug store to get the prescription filled I ended up having to get my future husband to “accompany” me so the pharmacist “interview” him and see if it was okay with him for me to be on the pill.
Even when we went to get a marriage license I had to get my Father’s signature and we had to go before a Judge because I was not yet 21 (I was 20 and 9 months).
I could go on and on, getting a credit card in MY name, etc., but I will tell you that WE MUST RESIST.
About 8: The State of New York only added No-Fault Divorce as an option in 2010 (!!!)
I want to repeat here.
This is what they mean, when they say “Old-fashioned values”
When conservatives start waxing lyrical about the ‘good old days’, this is what they mean. They are fully aware how much things blew for women, and they would like to return to that.
reading letters from 1818 is wild
“it’s that time of the year when I get colds for no apparent reason again” have some Clairitin hon
But also we’re not becoming allergic to everything nowadays like certain white moms fear. Allergies have always existed. They were just talked about differently
Like “oh clams always ~turn my stomach~”. Or “what a pity he was taken from us at age 5”
“Well we didn’t have all this fancy chronic illness stuff in the Olden Days, what did people do then??”
They died, Ashleigh.
This is a picture tracking bullet holes on Allied planes that encountered Nazi anti-aircraft fire in WW2.
At first, the military wanted to reinforce those areas, because obviously that’s where the ground crews observed the most damage on returning planes. Until Hungarian-born Jewish mathematician Abraham Wald pointed out that this was the damage on the planes that made it home, and the Allies should armor the areas where there are no dots at all, because those are the places where the planes won’t survive when hit. This phenomenon is called survivorship bias, a logic error where you focus on things that survived when you should really be looking at things that didn’t.
We have higher rates of mental illness now? Maybe that’s because we’ve stopped killing people for being “possessed” or “witches.” Higher rate of allergies? Anaphylaxis kills, and does so really fast if you don’t know what’s happening. Higher claims of rape? Maybe victims are less afraid of coming forward. These problems were all happening before, but now we’ve reinforced the medical and social structures needed to help these people survive. And we still have a long way to go.
This is one of my favorite anecdotes to show how clever rewording of statistics can make them say the opposite of what they mean:
Every time a state makes riding a motorcycle without a helmet illegal, the number of ER patients seriously injured in motorcycle accidents skyrockets. Every single time.
When you phrase it just right, it makes it sound like it’s more dangerous to ride a motorcycle with a helmet than without one. Of course, the reality is that before those laws, those patients were going to the morgue, not the ER.
That also reminds me of a story from world war 1 where the soldiers started to take their helmets off because more soldiers would come back injured while wearing a helmet. That’s because if they didn’t have a helmet they died.
I don’t know if anyone has ever done this before but, here ya go… The Different Types of Fanfiction!
I probably left a few out, but these are the most common, compared to their base fiction’s canon plot. Enjoy! XD
The crack fic is enough for a reblog.
then there are these favs…. ;)
*loud crash followed by Ultra Magnus yelling*
My sister actually had vampire who keeps going back to medical schools over and over and over again. Every time he completes it he adds a ‘Dr.’ to his title. Right now he’s ‘Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Vampire’.
without the knowledge of ocs this implies that she owned a vampire. like kept one as a pet
I love all of these ideas. If shit like this was actually used in any vampire stories, I would think vampires are great.
Lots of my favorite vines are old ones, so here are some that I didn’t want lost to the wind
Might make part 2 w/more modern vines(?)
Feels like home, y’know?
I pressed play, and was dead in the first four seconds…
“Bold assumption to think I don’t find myself attractive. I know I am, I don’t need anyone trying to suck up to me to tell me so” honestly these grey creatures were EXHAUSTING
since tumblr only made it so this blog is hidden from view anywhere but the dash, it means that technically this blog can still run, but given that it’s going to be a lot harder to find and post content now since so many artists have left, I’m not sure how long that’s going to be for. (for the record I tried messing with the coding to toggle the explicit content setting, as many people have noticed is possible, but it doesn’t seem to stick, probably because this blog was marked as explicit much earlier than when tumblr started slapping it on blogs arbitrarily.) I’ll try to maintain the queue for a while at least, but since tumblr is quickly becoming a ghost town, I’m not sure how long that’ll be for.
In the meantime, I’ve been messing around on pillowfort a bit, and communities such as MONSTERFUCKERS, Teratophilia and Monsterfolk seem to be pretty decent places to find similar content, although I will warn you that they don’t have the same rules that this blog had, so things such as rape and dubcon are present, and there is less of a focus on art and writing that is specifically about relationships. Pillowfort has a lot of room for different communities overall though, so I’m pretty hopeful that someone will make something similar in nature to the specifics of this blog on there.
anyway, take care and be excellent to each other.
Snopes is struggling due to mounting legal fees and they are a crucial organization for the fucked up, anti-truth time we’re currently living in, so I’m donating what I can and also writing drabbles* in exchange for any level of donation.
If you donate $50+, I am also willing to update the WIP of your choice lol
Just donate & send me a screenshot and a prompt/pairing.
*in this case, drabbles means at least 100 words; they will likely be more because i have no restraint or good sense
Here’s the letter from the Snopes page describing the issue:
November 1, 2019 by David Mikkelson, Organizer
We wish we had better news, but they have filed another appeal. This time they’re appealing our successful defense of our First Amendment rights.
Parties suing us — including newly minted CEO of Salon.com, Chris Richmond — have spent years filing losing motions, asking for continuances, changing legal counsel, and appealing adverse rulings.
It is all part of a scheme, our counsel wrote, “to ‘bring legal hell’ on Snopes employees in retaliation for terminating Snopes’ contract with Proper Media.”
Even the court described their tactics as “hostile.”
With the truth on our side, we have foiled their attempts so far. But now the case will drag on even longer and legal fees will continue to drain our revenues, threatening Snopes’ existence.
But even while they try to drag us down, we are showing up to make Snopes work better for you.
Soon we will bring you two major new developments:
A membership program that will reward sustaining Snopes supporters with special features and exclusive content.
And Snopes News, a feed without the falsity, where you can find headlines of the day curated by fact-checkers and editors you know you can trust. Sign up for updates here.
So long as we have your support, we will not give up.
Make a contribution today to defend Snopes.
I’d like to add Snopes is one of THE most trusted sources out there, and if it goes we will lose a great deal
