hitler was a human!!! we need to remember that to stop stuff like that happening again!!1!!
i’m sorry, were the millions of dead Jews, Roma, Slavs, disabled people, dark-skinned people, and gay people not enough to remind you that humanity is capable of evil? or is it too much work to think of us as people when there aren’t any cute propaganda pictures of burned corpses holding little Aryan girls’ hands?
Meet Nymeria! She’s gonna be some kind of thief/assassin cross, not sure how she’s going to evolve yet.
Was hoping to make her softer and younger looking, but Skyrim’s facial options for Bosmer were all far too harsh. oh well.

My medieval servant boy has gone missing. I’ll just use Google to see if I can find him.
I still say this was hilarious fuck you guys
Like when women hate men it’s frustrating at worst, maybe it hurts someone’s feelings, but when men hate women they are shamed, abused, patronized, demeaned, objectified, raped, and murdered, ya feel me, so even if I WAS a raging misandrist like worst case scenario I’d be a bummer at parties, meanwhile a girl somewhere literally can’t leave her house because it’s dark outside.
Tumblr, you are super fucking frustrating sometimes. I find myself ready to argue back with so many people (I keep seeing posts to a variety of authors asking why all their characters are white and cis when nowhere in the books it specifies that, and in the case of some of these authors I’ve read…
It’s fantastic that people are thinking and talking about these issues and encouraging other people to do so but attacking an individual because they didn’t make the exact choices that you think are correct is ridiculous.
It especially bothers me with authors because a lot of the time books only show a very small part of the world they are set in. If a story has five characters and is set in, say, rural Aberdeenshire, then fair enough they might all be white boys.
One dude writing a book is not the same as ten guys writing a TV show and I don’t think it’s fair to demand that the one dude writing a book should force diverse representation if he doesn’t feel comfortable/correct doing so.
Also yelling at people doesn’t make them understand you it just makes them sad, angry and probably less receptive to what you are trying to say.
Yeah the kicker for me is the conflation of the narrator’s opinion or a character’s opinion and the author’s opinion. Death of the author, yo!

People who say that John Green writes unrealistically mature teenagers are the reason that actual teenagers are looked at as a joke and their feelings are dismissed as underdeveloped.
One of the most frequent responses I got in creative writing class was that my child/teen characters were too smart and that kids didn’t sound like that.
My response is usually “My first words were ‘I’m pondering’, so…”
Also, they complain about the teens being too mature and then turn around and complain about Augustus being pretentious. John is damned if he does, and damned if he doesn’t: His intelligent characters are unrealistic, but then they’re also terrible because they have flaws.
I’ll give you tip: Crazy intelligent teens can end up super pretentious in high school. Trust me. I’m friends with a lot of people who were/are like that.
so my mum told me that as a kid she would peel an apple and throw the peel over her shoulder, and the peel would take the shape of the first letter of her future spouse. naturally, i decided to do it and
