Not Made of Metaphors

Pup. 20. Mexican(-Canadian?) Possibly asexual. Probably aromantic. Almost too anxious to function. Intersectional feminism and puppies are my favourite things in the world.

This used to be a half-fandom, half SJ personal blog, but at some point it got overrun by cute animals. I'm not sorry. Current fandoms, Welcome to Night Vale, Leverage, Les Mis, OITNB, CA:TWS (it used to be all the MCU, but.), and Free!, but that will probably change in a week.

My friend saw on Animal Planet that Golden Retriever’s mouths are so soft they can carry eggs without breaking them, so she tested it.

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

American music culture 101, from Country to Rock to Pop to Hip-hop, in 3 easy steps:

1. when black americans invent it, initially detest it, mock it, claim it is destroying american youth and proper sensibilities

2. realize it isn’t going anywhere, co-opt it, engage in it and profit from it

3. obscure its origins and repackage it in such a way that the next generation understands it as a product of white american excellence

He’s gonna be there, you know.

I know.

I don’t know why, but I feel like this scene echoes so much of that scene between Peggy & Steve in that bombed out bar after Bucky died. The forthrightness of both Sam & Peggy in articulating this whole Bucky situation, and how they respond to Steve’s equally immovable decisions on how to go about it.

They don’t mince their words with him — Peggy said as much that he’s disgracing Bucky’s memory by blaming himself for his death, and Sam is basically telling him that there’s no dishonor in stopping Bucky for good if that’s what it takes to save people.

But most importantly, they also make sure that he understands that he’s not alone in this. While Sam may not have verbalized it explicitly the way Peggy does, he keeps that promise just like her. Because Peggy stays with Steve until the end when he sacrificed his life for the world, and Sam is right there by his side when Steve wakes up after he has sacrificed himself again for a friend.

This is Steve’s story, so of course everyone is pulled into his orbit and how the relationships mostly revolve around him. But you get to know these people as their own persons too, and how they’re important to the narrative in their own right. There’s a constant steadfastness and unshakable trust to Peggy & Sam as individuals throughout the movies, which is critical not only for Steve’s sake, but also to the audience, for me at least.

"but never mind about thaaaaaat, we’ve got more important things to do! like listen to carlos!”

im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh

I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.

holy shit there is a name for it

Well damn. Explains a lot.

Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better.  That is Awesome. 

"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.

I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.

seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.


This post reminds me of all of those that get mad at very specific kinds of sexualities, especially in the grey ace spectrum. What they don’t realize is that sometimes, putting a name and a definition to something can mean a world of difference, especially if that something is your sexuality, and your sexuality cannot be defined by the standard accepted terms already out there.

Tree roots winning their battle against concrete

Love pictures like this.

This sort of thing makes me weirdly happy.

One of the warriors, whose name is Alisha, and who is not a woman or a man, and who is Doug’s partner, and who has a dog…

The question has been posed: what if Alisha’s dog is also a giant, and Carlos rides it? This had better be true. I liked the idea a lot, so I had to scribble it.

This dog is based on a canaan dog, a breed of Middle-Eastern origin that can survive well in a desert climate.
