it’s 2014 why do boys still think girls like the smell of axe
idk bout u but i love the smell of an axe in my hands. smells like wood polish and cold iron. smells like power and fear.
I’m not at all sure how it happened, but at some point recently my story "Giving Thanks" became the most-read Phineas and Ferb story on AO3.
This is really weird - it’s not what I’d consider my best story, and its kudos-to-hits ratio is abysmal. (It has 8 kudos. The story with the second-most hits has 182.)
Poking around with Google doesn’t find any unexpected links into it.
I’m just confused.
Chapter 5 (3 BBY/1BBY - The Firestar Girls) is now available. A troop of Firestar Girls needs to get a load of cupcakes delivered. What can go wrong?
This one got a last-minute rewrite of the ending after an emergency rewatch of the Isabella sections of the P&F:SW special. The first version had Isabella having far too close a relationship with the Rebellion, which doesn’t match up with her reaction in the special.
This is by far the longest chapter, at north of 4000 words. One more to go, hopefully next weekend, with glimpses from the party after the Battle of Yavin.
I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:
Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts or genitalia.
As a corollary to that general rule, I would add that I don’t see anything wrong with looking at pictures of breasts or genitalia of people who have invited us to do so. There seem to be plenty such pictures for us to get a reasonably good grasp of, like, the diversity of unclothed human anatomy without having to look at people who wish we wouldn’t.
This seems pretty straightforward to me. Yes, the photographer(s) who photographed Kate Middleton’s grainy distant breasts were violating her privacy. But so do people who choose to look at those pictures.
So maybe we can just agree not to? And this goes not only for princesses, I would argue, but also for people who send things to their romantic partners, who turn out to be jerks and release those photos publicly. Or people whose phones are hacked. etc.
In this world where most every curiosity can be satiated, it seems to me genuinely heroic to resist the urge to look at everything that can be seen, and instead to respect the wishes of those who feel violated or hurt by the availability of images they wish were private.
Seemed a good day to reblog this.
Mmm. Winter Soldier running on the TV now. But no new Marvel short with it? If there’s a short on the disc, I’m’a be ticked.
To Politicians and activists who haven’t been involved in public education for 20+ years develop these elaborate theories about why our educational system is failing; would you please look at how our educational system really functions, and it’s actual problems and their underlying causes.
