do not fall in love with people like me.
i will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. i will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. and when i leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people.
Calm down John Green

Urgent security update
Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.
But this still means that the little lock icon (HTTPS) we all trusted to keep our passwords, personal emails, and credit cards safe, was actually making all that private information accessible to anyone who knew about the exploit.
[ bad advice snipped ]
You’ll be hearing more in the news over the coming days. Take care.
But don’t change your password yet?
Heartbleed is a very, very big deal, and it’s quite rightly scaring the crap out of people. The response here is more complicated than ‘change your passwords’, and that complication is very important.
Heartbleed dumps a portion of the server’s memory out to the attacker. This chunk of memory can contain sensitive information, including your password.
Here’s the kicker: the more recently a vulnerable server has processed your password, the more likely it is to appear in one of these chunks.
And more importantly, if you change your password, you are risking both your old and new passwords.
- Go to filippo.io/Heartbleed. Type in the domain name of the site you want to check (for tumblr, you would enter tumblr.com) and press “Go!”
- If and only if you get a message saying that the site is “not affected”, change your password on that site and any other sites that you use it on. In future, use unique passwords for each site.
- If you get a message saying that the site is vulnerable, do not use that site. Keep checking every so often, and only use the site again when you get the “not affected” response.
Send me an ask if you need help or more information, I’ll do what I can.

That’s it. That’s the rec.
white people’s reactions to that post criticising Lucy makes me so fucking angry. More than that, it makes me trust them a little bit less.
fuck that whole “yes it’s problematic but I’m still excited!” because it is so much bullshit. Yeah, who cares about POC getting slaughtered and the violent linguistic imperialism BECAUSE ~STRONG WHITE FEMALE CHARACTER~. Apparently, POC’s deaths are less rage-inducing and less meaningful to white allies if a white woman is killing them instead of a white man.
To us, it’s still same white violence we see impeached everyday.
A white woman literally shoots a man in the head for not speaking English. Never mind the danger and oppression non-native English speakers face in the West, this took place in his home country. White expats are given so much fucking priority in Taiwan and China, with the way they’re catered to and coddled.
The kind of neo-imperialistic violence that this film is couching as ~female empowerment~ is really, really fucking harmful. White people have privilege in non-Western countries as well (the shit I’ve seen expats and exchange students get away with in China is astounding), to the extent that we aren’t even safe from harm in our own countries; this film not only ignores it, it glorifies it.
don’t you ever fucking forget that, because we can’t.
Part of having privilege means being able to watch and enjoy media that is harmful to marginalised minorities and still be critical of it, but when this dehumanisation is shoved in our faces, white people need to remember that this is so, so personal.
even if hannibal wasn’t a cannibalistic serial killer why would you want to hang out with him anyway he’s so pretentious

Most if not all of you are probably unaware that the Rainbow Bonnie event is taking place at the same time as Asexy April, an event focused on fanworks with characters whose identities fall under the asexual/aromantic umbrella. There are a lot of people who don’t understand asexuality, and given this week is inclusive of all non-cishet identities, I think it’s a relevant thing to talk about, especially considering the outrageous desexualization of Bonnie Bennett.
Asexuality is a sexual orientation, just like homosexuality, bisexuality, etc. Asexual people are sexually attracted to no one. It is not the same as celibacy. Celibacy is a behavior. While there are plenty asexual people who don’t have sex, there are also plenty of them who do, for some of the reasons allosexual (non-asexual people) do.
Asexual people can have a sex drive/libido. If you are allosexual (not asexual), chances are you’ve wanted to have sex at a time when you’re with people you’re not attracted to. For asexual people with a libido, this is the general experience.
Asexual people have a variety of attitudes about sex. Some love it and are very sexually active, others are repulsed by it, some are indifferent, and everything in between.
This is some very, very basic information, but my point is that an asexual headcanon doesn’t have to limit a character’s sexual behavior or attitude toward sex. There are other facets of sexuality other than sexual attraction (including romantic attraction) that are independent of it and can be present in your fanworks.
