“For asexuals, sex is like… a donut. When we see a donut, we do not have the urge to eat the donut. This does not necessarily mean we hate the donut, or think the donut is disgusting— many of us even like donuts. But we never have any urge to walk over there and eat it. Demisexuals will have the urge to eat the donut only if it their absolute favorite kind of donut in the whole world, and greysexuals sometimes will have the urge to get the donut, and sometimes not. Celibates are on diets.”—
my mom asked why i don’t read as many books as i used to and i just said it was because i read a lot of unpublished stories from independent writers online and she thinks that’s very good of me to give undiscovered authors a chance
Hi there! I don’t know who “specific group of people” refers to, but I have a suspicion, based on the contents of this post, that it’s “people who will not call me out on my massive douchebaggery”. Hey, guess what? You’re shit out of luck on that one!
Honestly, there was so much offensiveness here that I had to pick one thing to focus on, so I decided to move past the whole “no one else counts except for me!!11!11!” part of it, because my dear and lovely favourite gyzym has done that here, and focus on your incredibly problematic opinions about the queering of literature. But first, let’s see some evidence, of which you seem so fond, yeah?
having my life analyzed by Sherlock would be the most terrifying thing
“I can tell by the way you hold your hands that you spend hours each day either playing the piano or typing. Judging from the way your wrists bend - from a low angle to a high - you type, mainly, however your clothing and your age suggest it’s not something you do for work - a blogger, then, and a fanatical one at that. Your posture is warped from sitting in a chair for too long, and the way your social interactions are slightly stilted, your language and the frankly deranged way you laugh suggests you spend a lot of time on your own and conversing with people in capslock, riddled with ‘chat speak’ - oh my god, what is life, what is air - please, stop me if I’m wrong. No? Well, then. The way you keep looking between John and myself and the way you keep jerking your hands suggests you’re trying to contain your emotions and, taking into account the way you’re almost leering, blushing and the dilation of your pupils, I’d say you were imagining us in bed together, which means you’re not only a blogger, but a slash fangirl.”
Ok, let me preface this by saying that I am not a part of this fandom. Yeah, I’ve seen the newer movies, but I’ve never read the comics. Although I’ve seen some scanlations around tumblr, I don’t follow many Marvel or Avengers-centric blogs. (memosfromfury and godofbadassery make me laugh, so that’s it.) Yet, I have seen the sentiment a few times that some people are grossed out or pissed or whatever that other people ship Steve Rogers and Tony Stark.
… … . .
Didn’t a version of your own canon ship them? The Civil War ‘verse, I believe? As far as I can tell, Steve and Tony are so damn gay for each other that they got past the homophobia/heteronormativity embedded in the system that wouldn’t let them fuck canonically when they were both dudes. This manifested in an alternate universe where Iron Man magically sprouted a vagina and he got married to Captain America because it’s all heterosexual now and then they can go home and have little Iron America babies.
Not to mention, shipping this is basically shipping White Privilege Man and American Imperialism Man. It’s a match made IN AMERICA.
Seriously, it’s cool if you don’t like slash or if you don’t appreciate a particular ship for some reason, but I’ve seen people go BWAH STOP MAKING STEVE AND TONY FUCK YOU SICKOS a few times now from casual tumblring, and, like I said, I’m not even in this fandom. I just don’t get it.
“It’s a dead heat between Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson. Scarlett mixes a mean martini. It was quite rare that we were all there [on set] - it was like a relay race - but there was one weekend where we were all together. I’ll never forget the Saturday night in Albuquerque - every mobile phone of every single actor playing every single Avenger received a text message from Chris Evans that simply said “Assemble”. The following text message then said “Yes I did. I’m drunk.” We met at this bar on the high street and had a really fun time actually. There was a birthday party happening in the same bar and we were all on the dancefloor next to the VIP area. I remember the birthday boy celebrating with his friends… and then seeing Black Widow dancing with Captain America.”—

i just like to imagine moriarty recording that sir boast-a-lot video really excitedly, going out and renting a green screen and setting it up really carefully in like some warehouse somewhere and probably getting seb to do all the heavy lifting, he wrote out the script and labored over the wording for days before getting it just right and then he shot it and did all the background animation himself in adobe after effects and he was really
