finishing a series but still being attached to the story and its characters
hey friends! it’s been a while (four months!) since i’ve plugged my fic rec blog, so here i am again, showing off my baby ◕‿◕❀
since then, i have added a lot more author tags, a few more trope tags, and some new AUs (like magic shop!). there’s been lots of additions to my fave fics tag, so take a gander if you want the crème de la crème ;)
for those who haven’t seen this before, this side tumblr is where i store (and organize) all the fics i’ve read and love. it is updated weekly or bi-weekly, and you don’t need to follow the blog; just bookmark this link:
Audrey says “fuck your gender roles”
This movie is super underrated.
Audrey is so underrated. How can you not love her?
I have a love-hate relationship with this movie.
On one hand it’s got awesome PoC characters who defy racial and gender stereotypes. It also discusses colonialism and how people tend to destroy indigenous cultures to obtain land and resources (which is why the crew ultimately decided a to pretend they never found Atlantis because they don’t want anyone else to try and destroy the culture).
But on the other hand, the whole plot is that Atlantis needs a white, cishet man to save it from extinction and for some reason he understand their culture and language better than they do.
hEY FUCK YOU OKAY
MILO WAS THE ANTITHESIS OF WHITE SAVIOR
HE WAS A NERDY USELESS LITTLE SHIT WHO WAS COWARDLY UNTIL OTHERS FORCED HIM TO ACT
HIS ONLY STRENGTHS WERE HIS MIND AND HIS ETHICS
HE WAS THE PERFECT DUDE FOR THE JOB AND THE REASON HE KNEW BETTER WAS BECAUSE HE RIGOROUSLY STUDIED TEXTS THAT HAD BEEN LOST OR DESTROYED IN ATLANTIS BECAUSE KIDA’S FATHER INTENTIONALLY LET HIS KINGDOM LAPSE INTO DECAY AND OBSCURITY
DO NOT PULL THAT WHITE SAVIOUR BULLSHIT BECAUSE MILO WAS A DAMN GOOD DUDE
Did they ever reveal how Captain America was thawed? Because I’m picturing a bunch of Shield agents with hair dryers and I don’t think that’s quite right.
I chose to reblog only one thing tonight and this was it. I am not quite sure why….
if you want to be my lover you have to be able to marathon every marvel movie in one sitting
And yet, the requirement is still valid.

I’ve got a happy coming out story if you’re looking for them. So I was doing a presentation on asexuality for my LGBTQ Studies class and my friend, who I assumed had already put one and two together, kept making these jokes like “are you going to dress up like an asexual?” and I thought they were great and I was so happy to have someone around to joke about it and be open with. Anyway, a few weeks later we were talking about something where she’d had to use a straight friend or an example and she was kind of offhandedly like “You’re straight, right?” And I just looked at her and I was like “Um, no, you know I’m not? I’m asexual. That’s why you’ve been making all those jokes.” And she sort of went “WHAT, NO, that was just because it was your project, I didn’t realize YOU WERE.” And then we kind of laughed it off and everything went back to normal. So I guess the moral of the story is it is super easy and very relieving to come out to people who you assume already know, especially if they’re as chill as she is.
