Q:can you please tag your hunger games?
Things I’d like to see come back during this season of Doctor Who (which probably won’t come back)
- The Doctor’s integrity
- The Doctor’s compassion
- The Doctor’s humility
- Actual formidable villains
- Actual stable laws of Time
- Actual character study
- Actual consequences from selfish acts ( I know this last one is a bit unfair. But IDGRA.)
So. Take that how you will.
An open letter to Agamemnon

we’re taking a group of people who have insider knowledge of the English language (or at least a good grasp of it) and placing them in a new, unfamiliar, virtual space. This space introduces visual aids to language in the form of photos and gifs, the ability to comment on someone else’s text in a reblog and the ability to communicate a lot of information in very few words using hashtags. We also see the creation of tone in a toneless medium. In order to simulate conversational patterns in writing we SHOUT WHEN WE’RE SUPER EXCITED or *psssst whisper when we’re pretending to tell someone a secret while perfectly aware that anyone on the internet can read what we’re saying.* slash the coolest bit tho is that u can like ironically forgo all capitalization and punctuation just write in a weird speech pattern its ok everyone will still understand maybe it even helps read the text more quickly because nothing is interrupting the flow of words
In short, this dialect results when people who already share a language are given new tools. The result isn’t a butchering of English language but a creative experiment with it. Am I claiming that the Internet as a whole is operating on a level of postmodernism that would make Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon seem like novices? maybe i am maybe im not u punk wut of it like who r u to tell me otherwise

Totally worth reading the whole article, especially the part on Tumblr and gender.
nothing like a “hey idiot, you still owe us application materials” e-mail to send one’s night into a tailspin of panic and horror
but people who get all ‘think of the children!’ when you mention putting queer characters in kids shows piss me off so much
because I am thinking of the children
the queer children who are living in a world that tells them they are wrong at every turn, that denies their existence and refuses to allow them a happy ending
I’m thinking of those children
Wait what if every time Harry had a “conversation” with his conscience, that “little voice” as the narrator sometimes called it, it was actually a real conversation with Voldemort via the Horcrux but none of them realised?
So like that time Harry talked with himself about dating Ginny, it really was Voldemort telling him “She’s Ron’s sister!”
Like wow say what you will about Voldemort but at least he respects the Bro Code.
