White feminism is “Miley can dress however she wants, don’t slut shame her”
Actual feminism is “Miley can dress however she wants but she crossed a line when she started using another culture as a means to rebel and utilized black women and little people as shocking accessories in her music videos and live performances”
you’ve had nicki and rihanna for years you don’t need a miley
while i am in need of help, i am not forcing you to reblog this nor am i forcing you to read this. but if you can, can you help me? i am currently depressed, and i’m trying to find ways to make myself happy. I figured i might do something like this, see if it works. Reblog this, and i will write your url in this small notebook of mine. Everytime i feel sad or on the edge, i will pick a random url and send that person a thank-you message, or a message for help. i really hope i’m not coming off as attention-seeking uuuu…but i would really appreciate it if there were people to rant to, or seek help from. thank you for your time, and i hope your day goes well!
Sweetie, you’re not attention-seeking. You’re attention-WORTHY. Anytime you need to vent or some encouragement, feel free to drop me an ask. I will do my level best to respond promptly. *hugs*
"hugs" we all need help at some time. You’re brave for asking!
This is a PSA to ANY of my followers.
TAG ME IN STUFF.
YOU’RE NOT ANNOYING ME.
SEEING STUFF IN MY TAG.
MAKES MY DAY.
YOU THOUGHT OF ME.
YOU INCLUDED ME IN YOUR POST.
YOU WANTED ME TO SEE SOMETHING.
BLESS YOUR SWEET SOUL.
With all the discussion of Big Bang Press, I’ve been seeing some common misconceptions going around, and I want to try to help clear them up.
If you genuinely want to be traditionally published, you need to query agents and go through the process. Let your writing speak for itself.(Don’t include your AO3 name in your query letter. Yes, I have seen this. No, seriously, don’t.) But if you want to try to use your fannish capital as a way into traditional publishing, making it clear on all sides that you have work available is going to be the best way to do that.
If you want to be traditionally published, and you write a lot of well-received fic, state publicly in the same place as you have a fannish audience (e.g. tumblr and/or AO3) that you have a completed manuscript (yes, it has to be completed) and what genre it is. This will not draw anyone new to your work, but if an editor or agent or published author already reads your fic, it might pique their interest and help you form some connections and at least get some feedback to hone your work more.
I guarantee you none of your favorite pro fic writers had agents knocking on their doors before they finished a novel. I guarantee you nearly all of them sent out manuscripts to multiple agents and dealt with multiple rejections. There are plenty of reasons to not choose traditional publishing, but “agents and editors aren’t approaching me” should never be one of them.
There’s this thing about OUAT that makes me really happy. When The Evil Queen did the curse, she had to rename everyone and write them a story. This is how I imagine this going:
"Omg Rumple’s covered in gold dust. HIS NAME WILL BE MR.GOLD"
"The bug… omg yes this is good. HOPPER!"
"Dumbass in my mirror… wait. HE’S IN A MIRROR. I’LL CALL HIM GLASS! AND HE’LL WORK FOR THE FUCKING DALY MIRROR. HAHAHAHA What do you think dumbass? HAHAHA I DON’T CARE"
Here are some upcoming changes to XKit, disclosed since I like transparency. In a nutshell:
- I will be applying some rules to asks.
- There won’t be many updates to XKit in the upcoming weeks.
Reasons are listed after the read more to not clutter your dashboard. I apologize if you are on mobile.
I can’t believe people are rude to this guy who provides a totally free completely invaluable service and is always super polite and gracious about it all. That just takes the cake.
Rock on xkit guy. Do your thing.
