As of the recent upd8, it’s been established that there are some inconsistencies with Dave’s pesterlog (also, Dave, like every character has an adorable dork side and John appeared, but I think he’ll be flying between planets so I’m not sure how long he’ll be there).
Anyways the pesterlog inconsistencies. ARquius is probably behind it.

NOW REBLOG THE SHIT OUTA THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD!

This hits home for me.
So, I’m taking a short, non-credit course at the local community college on writing and publication. And I’m kind of freaking out because I’m supposed to bring 5 pages of my writing, and all I have is old high school projects, Pokemon fan fiction, and a fan fic of the RPG group I was in that I literally started last night and I’m reallly freaking out because the professor is a published author and the two other tsudents are experienced poets and I alreadly think Il ook like an immature moron and I don’t know whow to do dhis. And m yspelling is sucking. I just misspelled spelling damn it \
what crap do i give them?
and yet men remain the most marketed demographic for just about everything.
I’m pretty sure the only men who spend more time thinking about DC than women on Tumblr are the men who actually work there.
Now that I think about it, literally every DC fan I ever remember meeting has been a woman.(via entelechyengine)
- men get into something not aimed at their gender: get special titles like "brony." recognition by creators. heralded for defying gender appeal. get documentary.
- women get into something not aimed at their gender: not real fans. probably secret friend zone warriors deadset on erasing men from the human race. get insulting demeaning memes and sexual harassment.
Yeah, I probably should do something else and put this challenge on hold. I’m just tempted to draw a bunch when it comes to character design (I have a weakness for it and like to do it a bunch.)
I’m not entirely sure what I want to do with all these challenges? Be able to do more things? Get in the habit of drawing? Maybe, but I don’t like doing doodles because then I feel like they’re unfinished. Maybe if I just limit myself to working with black pen? I think I was still able to go pretty quickly with that, and I could always use work with that (plus I’ll be looking at only a small amount of tools).
I charged in without thinking /sigh

THIS IS REALLY FUCKING IMPORTANT AND INCREDIBLE
I think I was a little too ambitious with the challenge I’m doing. Technically I started two days ago. First day was done. Second day was sketched on time, but since I wanted to color it today I’ve redone the sketches.
I think the problem is that I left this so I would do multiple drawings in a day when I can barely maintain doing one, and my high expectations want me to do all of this.
That time when Rachel Maddow outlined perfectly the reality of institutionalized sexism and male privilege.
There are no words to describe my level of hatred for Ted Cruz.
When they’re heartbroken and cry, they get called a pussy. Boys are people too, they have feelings as well. Maybe that’s why some guys are so afraid of showing their emotions.
Thank you women of tumblr
Men who show emotions are twice as attractive. They can tell anyone who makes fun of them to shove it.
^^^^ all of this
do you ever just get up from your computer to walk aimlessly around your house only to sit back down in front of the computer again
I pointlessly open the fridge too.
sometimes i just stand in the middle of the living room and look lost.
Why am I in the bathroom
Why did I leave my room?
I just realized today how much more meaningful this quote is when you remember Dumbledore’s backstory. For years, Albus remained at Gellert Grindelwald’s side even as Grindelwald became more and more corrupt, simply because he was his friend. He turned a blind eye to the immorality of Gellert’s plans. He couldn’t bring himself to stand up to Grindelwald because he didn’t want to jeopardize their friendship. Even as an adult, he didn’t confront Grindelwald until it was nearly too late. Those ten points weren’t awarded to Neville just so Gryffindor would win the house cup. They were awarded because Dumbledore recognized that Neville, at the age of 11, was far braver than the young Albus had ever been. (via cobbledstories)
And J.K. Rowling does it again.
WHEN A FRIEND OR YOUR KID OR ANYONE YOU KNOW HAS PROBLEMS WITH LAKES AND OCEANS AND LARGE BODIES OF WATER DON’T MAKE FUN OF THEM OR PUSH THEM IN OR THROW THEIR STUFF INTO THE WATER BECAUSE IT HIGHLIGHTS HOW MUCH OF A FUCKING ASSHOLE YOU ARE
THIS APPLIES TO ALL PHOBIAS. DON’T MAKE FUN OF THEM BECAUSE OF THEIR FEARS OR EXPOSE THEM TO WHAT THEY ARE AFRAID OF.
I want to stress this again: In many, many parts of the country right now, if you want to go to see a movie in the theater and see a current movie about a woman — any story about any woman that isn’t a documentary or a cartoon — you can’t. You cannot. There are not any. You cannot take yourself to one, take your friend to one, take your daughter to one.
There are not any.
By far your best shot, numbers-wise, at finding one that’s at least even-handedly featuring a man and a woman is Before Midnight (on 891 screens) so I hope you like it. Because it’s pretty much that or a solid, impenetrable wall of movies about dudes.
Dudes in capes, dudes in cars, dudes in space, dudes drinking, dudes smoking, dudes doing magic tricks, dudes being funny, dudes being dramatic, dudes flying through the air, dudes blowing up, dudes getting killed, dudes saving and kissing women and children, and dudes glowering at each other.
Somebody asked me this morning what “the women” are going to do about this. I don’t know. I honestly am at the point where I have no idea what to do about it. Stop going to the movies? Boycott everything?
They put up Bridesmaids, we went. They put up Pitch Perfect, we went. They put up The Devil Wears Prada, which was in two-thousand-meryl-streeping-oh-six, and we went (and by “we,” I do not just mean women; I mean we, the humans), and all of it has led right here, right to this place. Right to the land of zippedy-doo-dah. You can apparently make an endless collection of high-priced action flops and everybody says “win some, lose some” and nobody decides that They Are Poison, but it feels like every “surprise success” about women is an anomaly and every failure is an abject lesson about how we really ought to just leave it all to The Rock.” —
— Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter from a Birmingham City Jail, 1963
“I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: “I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action”; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a “more convenient season.” Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.”

can we just take a moment to imagine little cute six-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
OH MY GOD
