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.

it’s really not a coincidence that winter soldier is being talked about as the best marvel movie yet

when you give women and poc the same importance and development as you do your white males, amazing things happen



i’m sorry but steve rogers and his rehearsed as hell “on your left” in the hospital bed like i swear this asshole has had MERE SECONDS to process his surroundings and company and it’s still the FIRST THING out of his mouth as if he’s practiced it in the mirror a dozen times while…

The movie is about…as he struggles to find an identity in the modern world, his old life is slipping away - is hanging on by a thread. Peggy doesn’t remember him… and she’ll be dead soon. She’s the last remnant of his past. And Sam happens to find his way into his life, so now he’s slowly meeting a new friend, he’s gaining a trust with Widow…so the movie is about a journey for him as he finds new elements in the modern world to emotionally attach himself to. The cruel twist is that, the Winter Soldier shows up…and it’s like the past punching him in the face.” — Joe Russo [x]

my feminist goal is not to convince men that girls are of value, my feminist goal is to achieve a future where the judgement of our value isn’t in the hands of men. 

and this goes for, especially goes for, trans girls, girls of colour, disabled girls and LGBTQA+ girls. 

girls, all girls, and if you believe otherwise don’t reblog this.

Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.

Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover

i’m so upset

I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb

they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!

I can’t

present active boōpresent infinitive boāreperfect active boāvīsupine boātum



if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter

do they speak latin because it’s a dead language

So I’ve been delighted by all of these Tumblr posts about what it would be like to live with dragons.

But, somewhere, there is an alternate universe in which dragons are commonplace…but they don’t have an animal that’s commonplace for us.

Maybe cats.

And people in that…

  • Romeo: I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing
  • Juliet: I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself
  • --
  • Romeo: We should kiss right now at this party
  • Juliet: No that is a super dumb idea
  • Romeo: *kisses her anyway*
  • Juliet: That was dumb of you
  • --
  • Romeo: We should get married right now
  • Juliet: We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?
  • Romeo: Like tomorrow?
  • Juliet: Sure, fine.
  • --
  • Juliet: We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.
  • Romeo: Right.
  • Romeo: It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.
  • --
  • Juliet: Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.
  • Romeo: *immediately kills himself*
  • Juliet: For fucks sake.


So Night Vale tweeted that in the new episode, Cecils gonna get a phone call from a stranger…

Everyone thinks its gonna be earl, or a member of the masked army, or someone like that.

But you know what I think?
Cecils gonna answer that call, and what’s he gonna hear?

Ill tell you.
Hes gonna hear…
