okay so imagine an au where the potters live. harry dates oliver wood briefly. james hears of this and pulls harry aside. stares him in the eye with a deadly serious face
“he’s a Keeper”

You made an entire AU that would alter almost every facet of that series
For a pun
You’re a beautiful person.


my heart says yes but my bank balance says no

"Especially in the United States, there’s a lot of hokum about ‘positive thinking’ and various other iterations of magical thinking, as though by crossing your fingers hard enough and wishing, you can magic yourself to a world where bad things don’t happen. If bad things do happen, you’re not trying hard enough. If you respond to them in a negative way, you’re letting them get you down, instead of confronting them with a cheery smile and brave aspect."

Fakir and Ahiru in your favorite disney movie? I hope this is ok


(Ohhhh, the hard part here is picking a fave, especially since some of the candidates are ones where I’ve already written fics based on the original fairy tales. Also Fantasia. :P sooooo, I hope you don’t mind, but I kiiiiiiiiiiind of cheated and went with something Pixar!)

They meet at Sunnyside after Lotso’s been deposed: the knight action figure dumped here by a boy who lost interest in them years ago, and now a girl growing up who somehow only managed to retain one small doll from her ballet princess toy set and no longer needs her drops her off in a box filled with other odds and ends. The little doll, her hair red and freckles painted on her cute face, has been lonely for years now, and the knight has seen toys come and go in those dark years; but somehow they find each other, and she brings light to him, and he gives her the companionship she’s longed for. Before long, people are gossiping about them nearly as much as they talk about Ken and Barbie.

I want you to be some place you’re happy and I get that it’s not here. I put a burner phone in [your backpack]. So…call me.

A wonderful feature-length piece on Patti Shaw, featuring Ruby Corado of Casa Ruby — two women who are the sheroes doing the daily access work to change the lives of trans folk. 


What if
all women were bigger and stronger than you
and thought they were smarter

What if
women were the ones who started wars

What if
too many of your friends had been raped by women wielding giant dildos
and no K-Y Jelly

What if
the state trooper
who pulled you over on the New Jersey Turnpike
was a woman
and carried a gun

What if
the ability to menstruate
was the prerequisite for most high-paying jobs

What if
your attractiveness to women depended
on the size of your penis

What if
every time women saw you
they’d hoot and make jerking motions with their hands

What if
women were always making jokes
about how ugly penises are
and how bad sperm tastes

What if
you had to explain what’s wrong with your car
to big sweaty women with greasy hands
who stared at your crotch
in a garage where you are surrounded
by posters of naked men with hard-ons

What if
men’s magazines featured cover photos
of 14-year-old boys
with socks
tucked into the front of their jeans
and articles like:
“How to tell if your wife is unfaithful”
“What your doctor won’t tell you about your prostate”
“The truth about impotence”

What if
the doctor who examined your prostate
was a woman
and called you “Honey”

What if
you had to inhale your boss’s stale cigar breath
as she insisted that sleeping with her
was part of the job

What if
you couldn’t get away because
the company dress code required
you wear shoes
designed to keep you from running

And what if
after all that
women still wanted you
to love them.

She wrote a post about the history of this poem that is worth reading.

since that wage post is going around again here’s a reminder that it’s still legal in the US to pay disabled people 22 CENTS AN HOUR

Goodwill got shit for this for like five minutes but there’s a poster in the back room at my job that says the employer can literally decide how much a disabled worker makes if they want to.

Like, it’s just up to them. Theres no guaranteed minimum wage for disabled people.

Why the fuck does nobody know or care that this is a thing?

u know why

P!nk talking about Stupid Girls [2/2]

Don’t play dumb, even if they want you to.

Props to her for pointing out problematic behavior without putting down the women in general.

I take requests for anything, so long as I’ve seen it and have access to it. Your best bet is the Whedonverse and Community. :)
