"i wanna read this very specific fanfiction but i really, really don’t want to write it" - a story about me
And because I’ve gotten some Asks, I also want to assure anyone wondering that my depression issues aren’t any worse than usual and aren’t the motivation for my blog deletion. But thank you for being worried about me. It’s one of the reasons I <3 all of you so much.
Every hour, a supernatural teen gets hunted down and murdered. But thanks to donors like you, three thousand sexy teens were rescued last year. For hundreds of others, help never showed up. If you don’t call this number, you’re a murderer. 1-800-STOP-KILLING-SEXY-TEENS-YOU-GUYS.
No, I’m sorry but this is unacceptably tone deaf right now. The ENTIRE world is watching because an unarmed black teen was shot SIX TIMES in broad daylight by police. This is an unnaceptable parody of the treatment of black (and other youth of color) by law enforcement officials.
A young man is dead for the crime of being black and we (Teen Wolf fandom) have decided that it is acceptable to create parodies based on this tragedy? That it is okay to joke about a charity hotline to save (fictional) supernatural teens when REAL LIFE TEENS are being racially profiled, harassed, and killed by law enforcement authorities.
I understand that fantasy often serves an allegorical purposes but this is an example of allegory gone terribly wrong.
Adding to the offensive are the cutesy faces in the gifs of Posey and Sprayberry. Given the tragedy of Mike Brown, this is an unnaceptable parody of the horror of his death, and the death of other young people of color at the hands of law enforcement officials. Children of color are people, they are children. This gifset, this joke dehumanizes them. It treats their lives and deaths as less than. There are young men holding signs in the streets of Ferguson that say “Stop Killing Us” and you are going to create this bullshit now? Because it is funny to trivialize the lives of black people? HAHAHAHA. It’s funny because it is fucking racist.
Here is where you can donate to help feed the children of Ferguson, MO.
ETA: This is apparently based on a segment on the after after show. I am horrified that MTV did not edit this out given the current issues and discussions regarding violence against young people of color.
Yeah I’m not laughing.

this touches my soul
That’s actually what’s taking me so long to update some of my posts; not only is the information surfacing slowly about his case specifically, but I make sure to cross reference at least three sources because some people are just blatantly lying to stir shit up.
Also live feeds keep going down and new ones pop back up but I know some of you are sensitive to video, so

I’m sure I forgot a bunch but here’s a start. I’ll update it periodically and reblog. Some of it is compilations from a bunch of sources, some is original content. Disclaimer: I’m not vouching for any other content on any of these blogs/twitters/instagrams or any that may be posted after this list but as of right now, the information regarding Ferguson and discussions taking place about the rallies/police and Mike Brown’s death seems accurate.

DEAR PEOPLE WHO MADE “THE GIVER” MOVIE:
THERE ARE NO FUCKING HOVERCRAFTS IN THE BOOK
NO HOVERCRAFTS ABDUCT JONAS IN THE BOOK
JONAS AND FIONA DO NOT FALL IN LOVE IN THE BOOK
THE INJECTIONS ARE PILLS IN THE BOOK
PLEASEJONAS IS TWELVE IN THE BOOK.
I DONT KNOW WHAT THIS IS BUT HOW DO YOU FUCK UP THAT BADLY
- Stop villainizing Victoria to make your Petopher work
- Stop downplaying Chris’ love for Victoria to make your Petopher work
- Stop ignoring the fact there is every indication they had a long and happy marriage as lovers and partners to make your Petopher work
- Stop. Dismissing. Victoria.
I haven’t seen a lot of this, but I’ve seen enough of it. And it’ll make me back out a fic so fast, you wouldn’t believe.
Victoria was, and is, a huge and important part of Chris’ life. She was a fantastic character, brilliantly played, and Chris loved her. Don’t do her the disservice of dumbing her down to a caricature because omg, how dare she get in the way of Chris/Peter.
If the only way you can make your Petopher story work is by assassinating Victoria’s character, then maybe you need to take a long, hard look at what exactly it is you’re writing. Or at least admit that you’re writing with a bias that stems from sexism.
(And I think that maybe I’ve been amazingly lucky in that the writers I love and enjoy are mature enough, skilled enough, and have enough respect for the characters to not do that.)
I love you.
I haven’t posted a selfie in a while but I still am very cute just to keep you updated
