and hilariousFacts About Mo Dao Zu Shi

1. Fairy is actually a Husky. When I set up this character, I didn’t know that huskies were… not that intelligent, so now in my mind Fairy still has the look of a Husky. Let’s just think that Fairy is an extremely intelligent mutated Husky okay…
2. Lan Qiren has a beard from a young age. However, it was shaved clean by Zangse Sanren. He was so mad!
Later, the son of Zangse Sanren also shaved his beard… (but I did not write about it).
*For those who don’t know, Zangse Sanren is Wuxian’s mother.
3. When Jin Guangyao took in Lan Xichen during his runaway, Guangyao was working as a bookeepper.
Guangyao helped wash Xichen’s clothes, because Xichen himself did not know how to wash. It was not possible to ask others to wash, because it would be dangerous if the cloud patterns were recognised. Moreover the clothes could not be thrown away or burnt.
Jin Guangyao used to complain to Nie Mingjue that Lan Xichen’s arm was too strong that he tore apart his clothes while washing…
4. It was way too easy to make Xingchen laugh. Both Xueyang and Ah Qing knew about this but they would never tell Xingchen. Song Lan did not know about this, because the dude never ever laughed…
5. Jiang Cheng went to 3 blind dates. For various reasons, he got blacklisted by all the female cultivators.
Here are Jiang Cheng’s requirements in his partner: naturally beautiful, graceful and obedient, hard-working and thrifty, coming from a respected family, cultivation level not too high, personality not too strong, talking not too much, voice not too loud, spending money not too much. And must treat Jin Ling nicely.
6. Lan Sizhui is older than Jin Ling, but both of them are 172-cm tall. Sizhui suffered from malnutrition when he was a child, and only ate bland food when he was growing up, therefore his development is a bit slow…
Lan Jingyi is 168-cm tall.
7. In order to confess to Jiang Yanli, Jin Zixuan specifically hired someone to write a long long long cheesy essay, and he learnt it by heart. Turned out he did not use a single sentence.
One day, after their marriage, he felt that the opportunity had come, so he read it out loud to Jiang Yanli. Upon hearing it, Jiang Yanli gently stroked his cheek, turned her back and walked away. She was graceful enough to not roll on the floor laughing in front of her husband.
8. Lan Wangji has known very early on that Wei Wuxian is afraid of dogs.
Jin Zixuan used to own a dog, and he left it at the foot of Cloud Recesses’ mountain. One day, the dog ran up the mountain right when Wuxian was sneaking in through the wall. The dog snarked loudly at him; he was so scared he immediately ran to hide in a tree. It was Lan Wangji that chased the dog away.
However, Wuxian thought that Wangji did not see him trembling on the tree.
9. Even though Lan Wangji never talks about it, Wei Wuxian discovers that Lan Wangji loves to use all sorts of things to tie him up during (…)
10. Between the seme and the uke, Wei Wuxian was the first character to be set up.
Back then I even ranted on Weibo, “This uke is giving me so much headache; I don’t know what kind of seme I should give him!”
The seme has gone though many changes in personalities, appearances, ages, backgrounds, back stories… such a complicated process!
But in the end, a flash of Heaven’s light came right through me, I slammed the table and chose the very first version - “This is him!“
It can be seen that Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian are fated to be together. No matter what happens, in the end it will always be that person.
I’ve been making my way thru the guardian tag on ao3 and I gotta say. A few vore jokes aside I’m really suprised I haven’t seen anyone taking Ye Zun’s ‘eating people’ thing as something more literal in a fic.
i mean this in the nicest way possible you guys but you NEED to take better care of yourselves online. getting severely anxious about mass quantities of horrible things you cant change every single day is normal considering the internet’s ability to educate on worldwide issues, it shows that you have empathy and that you truly do care. but relentless knowledge of constant suffering on this scale is NOT something humans are psychologically equipped to handle. it’s okay to shut off. it’s okay to just take a break and enjoy yourself for a while in your own localized space
hetalia is violently antisemitic and racist
if you like hetalia in 2021 im going to assume that you are a white supremacist hands down
some of the people commenting on this don’t remember people cosplaying nazis in front of the holocaust museum and it shows
the anti-korean ideologies written into hetalia and aot also must be brought to western attention; i know the west is largely not educated about eastern history, but the writers of these franchises are outright japanese nationalists making light of or supporting japanese supremacy or japanese colonization of korea, which japan routinely ignores and refuses to pay reparations to korea for japan’s period of colonizing and enslavement. lack of education is no longer an excuse when korean and jewish people continually try to educate and hold you and the franchise responsible for antisemitism and nationalism, you’ve just surrounded yourself with a community that will not just make excuses for right wing propaganda, but build a fandom off it and sway impressionable teenagers
What is or isn’t a slur can be highly contextual, y'all.
“Jonny Sims bummed a fag off my ma” doesn’t contain a slur, but “What are you, some kind of fag?” does.
“Queer studies”, “the queer community” and “I’m queer”? Not a slur. Some bigot calling you a “dirty queer”? Slur.
“Be gay, do crimes” and “He’s gay” ≠ slur, but “Ew, that’s so gay” = slur.
In conclusion, stop buying into this fucking “q slur” bullshit. Queer people talking about the queer community aren’t using it as a slur any more than a gay man calling himself gay is using that term as a slur.
Everyone tagging this as “Don’t call people ‘queer’ if they aren’t comfortable with it”, I don’t disagree with you, but I do have one question for you:
Why are you singling out “queer”?
Hi, I’m queer and I don’t like being called gay. Why is it always “don’t call people 'queer’ if they don’t like it” but never “don’t call people 'gay’ if they don’t like it”? Or just “don’t call people words they are uncomfortable with”?
Why is it only ever “queer” that gets singled out?
And why do you even feel the need to tag that onto this post? All I said was “stop tagging people referring to themselves this way as if it were the same as bigots hurling it as a slur”.
Because queer originated as a slur and gay didn’t? That’s obvious…
People have self-identified as “queer” since at least the 1920s, back when it mattered whether a man called himself a “fairy” or a “queer” as those meant very different things. “Gay” was adopted later. That’s a hundred years ago.
If you don’t want to go that far back, there’s also Queer Nation pushing against the restrictive duality of hetero- vs homosexuality back in the '90s. That’s 30 years ago.
Meanwhile using “gay” to mean “bad” was super widespread in my school when I was a teenager. That was less than 10 years ago.
Are you really telling me decades of people self-identifying as queer mean fuck-all? Are you saying the fact that gay is hurled with the intent to hurt as well doesn’t matter?
Are you really telling me that it’s cool to go on the posts of people talking about their own identity and constantly derail them by going “oh yeah but other people-”?
This is still a post about people treating queer people referring to ourselves and our community as queer as if we’re hurling it at other people as an insult.
“But it originated as-” is not an excuse to constantly derail queer people’s posts by making them about people who aren’t queer or to act like we’re hurting people by talking about our identity.
Queerphobes love denying, erasing, and re-writing history to suit their queerphobic aims. Gay was a slur long, long before queer:…around the early parts of the 17th century, the word [gay] began to be associated with immorality. By the mid 17th century, according to an Oxford dictionary definition at the time, the meaning of the word had changed to mean “addicted to pleasures and dissipations. Often euphemistically: Of loose and immoral life”. This is an extension of one of the original meanings of “carefree”, meaning more or less uninhibited.Fast-forward to the 19th century and the word gay referred to a woman who was a prostitute and a gay man was someone who slept with a lot of women (ironically enough), often prostitutes. Also at this time, the phrase “gay it” meant to have sex.[source]
The word queer, meanwhile, wasn’t associated with homosexuality until the late 19th century.By the late 19th century, queer was beginning to gain a connotation of sexual deviance, used to refer to feminine men or men who were thought to have engaged in same-sex relationships. An early recorded usage of the word in this sense was in an 1894 letter by John Sholto Douglas, 9th Marquess of Queensberry.[source]
Before that, queer was simply an adjective, meaning eccentric.
Neither word started out as a slur.
Both became slurs, and then were reclaimed, and then became slurs again, and then were reclaimed again, etc. Gay was a particularly popular slur throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, and some homophobes continue to use it as a slur to this day.
All of the terms we have for defining marginalized sexualities and genders have a fraught history.
If a group of people is marginalized, the terms used to define that group will be weaponized against them. That’s just how marginalization works.
Learn history, children, or admit you’re furthering an exclusionary agenda. Why do you hate the umbrella term that includes asexuality and trans identities so much anyway…?

It must be very confusing for non WOH watchers that we call a man in his thirties grandpa and don’t laugh about another man who nailed himself
Probs because most people don’t realise we are serious when we call him grampa, like when an adult man gets called a baby, as a personality descriptor not about their age
Absolutely love trying to name a character from a culture I don’t know because I get to juggle a language barrier, cultural ignorance, making connections to the book themes with meanings, creating a name that works phonetically, AND something that fits the character.
Let’s play a game called don’t make up something stupid and don’t offend anyone because you are hellbent on not westernising things because it would be disrespectful.
every time i see “why are you buying clothes at the soup store” i have to laugh because there’s a mall near my grandparents’ house and one of the stores in it is called soup store and you’ll never guess what they sell
Op this is amazing but I’m required by law to say
Kind of want to get a Henley but I feel a little bit like I’m too twink to rock that
you know what? it’s been long enough i think we can admit that abc’s once upon a time was dumb as all shit and that’s why it fucks
the evil queen’s mom was the queen of hearts, and also the miller’s daughter from rumpelstiltskin. rumpelstiltskin is also the beast from beauty and the beast and peter pan’s son. his wife eloped with captain hook and his mom kidnapped his secondborn son with belle to use as a weapon against his daughter-in-law
there were four rapunzels- one who only appeared in one episode and then was never mentioned again, and then three from the final season- one of whom was mother gothel in disguise (who is also a nymph and had a scene identical to the prom scene in carrie), one of whom was lady tremaine, and the final of whom was alice in wonderland, captain hook’s daughter
hades fell in love with the wicked witch of the west and also was that guy from ally mcbeal and we were supposed to take that 100% seriously
maleficent got impregnated by a mystery man and laid an egg, out of which hatched a human baby. they went to find her dad and never showed up in the show again. we find out in the last episode that her dad was zorro and nothing else is mentioned of this
the frozen characters were all there, completely based on canon with no alterations like everyone else got, and nobody questioned this. cruella de vil was also there and now is probably fighting with king arthur over custody of hell
mérida was there for like a season and a half and not once did she ever get a costume change. they were at a funeral and you can see her bright bluegreen dress just. there
henry jumped on a lion in new york and gave a speech about how magic is real
at the end they crowned the evil queen empress of everything just bc
there was a musical episode
nothing in this show made sense and that’s why it’s fucking hilarious
HENRY HAD A LOVE INTEREST FROM CAMELOT AND IN HER FINAL APPEARANCE SHE RETCONS HER BACKSTORY AND SAYS HER DAD WAS FROM EARTH AND WE FIND OUT HER DAD WAS THE CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR’S COURT
WHICH IS NOT ONLY THE FUNNIEST RETCON IN HISTORY (funnier by the fact he does have the right name, meaning that this was planned and they just forgot to drop any foreshadowing) BUT IF YOU FOLLOW BOOKCANON IT MEANS THAT HER BIRTH NAME IS HELLO-CENTRAL
LITTLE BO PEEP WAS A MOB BOSS
What, and I cannot emphasize this enough, the FUCK
I don’t watch Once Upon A Time but every clip I’ve seen is like
Quasimodo: “And where is the amulet?”
Edgar from Aristocats: “Safe and sound I assure you. Isn’t that right, Lightning McQueen?”
*the sounds of revving comes out of the shadows*
i find it hilarious when ur the quiet/introverted kid and the teacher always sends ppl who are too talkative in class next to you bc they know you wont talk like
bad and naughty children get put with the Silent Man to atone for their crimes
