I have a deep love for stories about Slytherin House. Like the books were very lacking in delving into the lives of the students of Slytherin and understanding them.
Sure we got two or Three “good ones”, but the rest of the house? We’re just supposed to believe that they are all cowardly, self serving, pureblood supremist.
Not one Slytherin stayed for the Battle at Howards. I have a hard time accepting that not even one of them would have been like ‘fuck Voldemort, he’s messed up my life, brain washed my friends, my family, and i dont even buy his bull shit anyway!’
I dont believe that not one of them would find the courage to seek help if their family was too far gone. The Battle at Hogworts would have been the perfect time redeem that house. It would been the pefect time for them to show solidarity with the rest of the school. But JK didnt do that, and it left me feeling really hollow where Slytherins are concerned.
Thats why i only read fanfictions starring Slytherins. They’re not all angles, but not all of them are evil either. Those kids and those adults all had stories that could have been told. JK did them no justice, but the fans do. Whether its a War, angst, fluff, romance, dark, Post Hogwarts, School, or striaght up smut, their voices get heard in fanfiction.
I see… oh. Er… well. I see Hermione and Ral from my fanfic, "The Longest Distance Between Two Places".
Sorry, just what I honestly see.
What do you see?
I see it! 🙆🙆🙆

[OP-ED] The PedonoonaBy Mod Myshayla
(TW: rape, sexual harassment)
I’ve noticed many older women, in this case meaning twenty or older, in kpop fandom will claim under-age idols are making them feel things on purpose, when they aren’t. How a simple gif of someone licking their lips is making you feel has to do with you and not them. Some people just have dry lips, some people just lick them, some people aren’t trying to turn you on in some subtle sexual fantasy.Yeah, sometimes the borderline sexual moments are done on purpose because it’s a part of marketing and appearing an attainable person to help gather more attention and fans. An idols job is to please us in different ways, of course, through quick fanservice tummy glimpses and what not but that doesn’t make the countdowns okay.
“Just two more years and you’re mine!” is creepy. You’ve got a countdown for a child, basically. This person’s attractiveness makes you think it’s okay to become so possessive over them. “And you’re mine?” Really? No, when they turn 19, they don’t magically fall under your ownership. And I’ve seen people purposefully go by non-Korean age rules just so their bias is at least considered of age in the US so it’s okay to be oversexual about them.
If anything, these younger idols aren’t trying to make *you* feel things but rather people their actual age except you keep getting in the way.
I get it, sometimes it’s fun to joke. This is my boyfriend. This is my girlfriend. But the whole “we’ll be together once you’re legal” thing is gross, joking or not, because this happens in real life. People have actual mental problems and project these problems onto children. They create countdowns and prey on children and young teens and then they blame those same children and young teens because of it.
“Well, she wouldn’t have gotten raped if she hadn’t worn…”, “He was honestly asking for it.”, “They gave me consent! Sure, they were only thirteen and didn’t know what consent meant but they said yes, so that means they wanted to.” And so on… are a few examples.
This “pedonoona” trend reflects a disgusting sexual harassment culture where it isn’t the person that’s sexualizing that’s held accountable but the sexualized. People that didn’t do anything but stand there are told they caused your freaky fantasies on purpose and should be punished for it.
“Pedonoona” isn’t a cute name. It’s pedophile + noona. Referring to yourself as a pedophile is not cute. Why do you want to be considered a pedophile? Why do you think it’s some kind of badge of honor?
The amount of idols that are of age to gladly thirst over without overstepping bounds is crazy. You should never have an excuse to be fixated on someone underage when there’s probably someone similar to them that is of age to obsess about. It’s like having ten people in front of you, nine of age and one that isn’t, and you’re going to go after the single one that isn’t? Does that make sense?
As much as uncle fans are vilified, sometimes rightfully so, I can’t help but think this acceptance of older women eyeing younger men is another reflection of how sexual harassment in general is treated as something good when it comes to boys. Oh, that older woman hit on you? Don’t complain, man! She’s hot, who cares if you didn’t like the advances. Oh, she forced you into having sex? Who cares? Sex is sex, sex without attachments? Wow, you’re living the dream.
It’s even worse when people openly sexualize sixteen-year-olds and seventeen-year-olds but word it in a way where it’s almost like they haven’t.
“I can’t wait until you’re nineteen so I can talk about how we’ll… -insert fantasy-”
Why wait? Why care about them being over-aged when you talk about this all so openly anyway? Who are you fooling? Why add a disclaimer like you care about them being a minor and then end it with a descriptive paragraph of what you’ll do “but oh, only when they’re of age of course.”
I know being told these things may not end your fascination with some younger idols but maybe you could learn to keep it to yourself? Because a lot of us don’t want to hear about it and I’m sure it would make some idols really uncomfortable to know they’re seventeen with a huge twenty-one year old following…
Hi there anon,
I don’t know if you’re white or not but honestly that’s irrelevant right now.
There are few things in the world that actually piss me off. This, however, is one of them.
How incredbily demeaning to come into a mixed-race person’s inbox with your opinion regarding their race.
How incredibly demeaning of you to tell me, a mixed person, what I should do with my identity.
How incredibly fucking demeaning to in the process, attempt to “educate me” on my ethnicity, on my culture, on the countries I grew up in, on the blood in my veins.
There is nothing, in my opinion, more offensive to a mixed race person than to try to put fractions on their identity.
I was born and raised in Japan. I was raised in an bilingual household. My Father was 100% Japanese, my Mother ethnically 100% Korean. They loved eachother and in turn, they loved me. I am precious to my Father, just as I am to my Mother. It was important to them when I was a child to make sure I understood how precious my heritage was. I was raised in a bilingual household. Although raised primarily in Japan, I was close with some of my Korean relatives. We celebrated Korean holidays, just as we did Japanese ones.
Yes, they often experienced prejudice because of their marriage and because of me as their child.
Yes, there’s an anti-Korea sentiment among right-wingers in Japan. The resinating bitterness of Korea’s history beneath Japan’s rule, and Japan’s colonization of Korea during that time. The history of Korean women being pressured to work as “comfort women” in Imperial Japanese military brothels during World War II. The territorial disputes, the dispute over the Sea of Japan / East Sea..
Yes, I have been mistreated by my Korean relatives due to the fact that I am partially Japanese. My Father was denounced as being part of my Mother’s family and upon refusing to leave him, my Mother was all but exiled from most of her extended family. Even to this day, I have aunts, uncles, and cousins who believe me to be some sort of bastard child.
쪽바리. 쪽바리, 쪽바리, 쪽바리. I am a bastard child to much of my Korean family. I’m a half-bred, a dog, a mutt, someone who is unworthy of being part of what they consider to be their “family circle”.
My Mother begun experiencing conflict from within her family as soon as she began to date my Father. This wasn’t a sudden, shocking realization to her. She was fully prepared to experience mass backlash. And that sht did. My Father too experienced it from his side of the family, to some degree.
"Ah, what a shame she didn’t have a child with a good Korean man. Instead of diluting strong Korean blood, why did you do that?"
Was it troubling? Yes. Was it horrible, upsetting, heartbreaking? Yes. However not did they ever once doubt their marriage as being special and sacred and never did they tell me to accomondate other people’s opinions in order to make my life more cordial. To get along with others. I have an aunt, uncle, and grand parents who despite these long standing and deeply seeded racial issues, continued to support my parents and in turn support me.
In my teenage years, it was incredibly troubling for me to hear these types of things resinate from both sides of my family. My parents tried to shield me but I wasn’t naive. I got strange comments from parents of classmates. I got treated differently by teachers, on occasion. I was never outright attacked or mistreated by people outside of my family but still, I knew. And I endured.
These are troubles that not only I as a Korean / Japanese person face, but many people in Japan / Korea face. Hafu. We are half, two sides put together, but to a lot of people we’re never entirely a whole. Here is a good article about it, really. “Hafu: Telling the story of Japan’s mixed-race minority and changing attitudes in society”.
Once I moved to the United States, never did I feel it was more comfortable for me to explain my ethnicity to others by picking one side or another. If I were to do that, i’d feel like a blatant show of disrespect to my parents. To either my Father or my Mother. To my parents who faced massive amounts of adversity and prejudice just to be together and to raise me correctly, to raise me as a strong invidivual who they knew could cope with the prejudice i’d experience in my life.
To “pick one side” would be to destroy my Father or destroy my Mother. To denounce everything they’ve been through both for eachother and for me, as something that was in vain, totally worthless, totally not important or worth talking about.
To “pick one side” would be to tell my Father that his parents denouncing him from the family would’ve been for nothing. To tell my Mother that standing up against her siblings, cousins, friends was totally in vain. Every single night my Mother would wail about how she felt terrible that I had to hear those nasty words from other people. She felt so terrible that these people who - who were Asian, who looked JUST LIKE HER - treated her and her son as less than human. It was horrible and it destroyed her every. single. day.
I’ve never for a second considered “picking a side” in order to make my existence an easier one. You can probably guess just from the fact that I run a blog like this, and get assaulted by a constant stream of hatred and bigotry, that i’m not the type to pick the easy route. Absolutely nothing I do in my life, I will do to accominate the opinions of others. I will never be cordial for the sake of avoiding conflict. That’s not my style. And that’s how I was raised.
Again, i’m sure I speak for not only Japanese / Korean people and not only for people who are considered “hafu”, but for people of mixed ethnicity in general. I’m sure there’s others who can relate.
I’ve told followers before, and i’ll say it again: Your identity as a mixed race person is completely and totally valid. You are your Father’s blood, your Mother’s blood, their adversity. Your eyes, your skin, your hair, everything about you is important and valid and you in no way or shape or form have to feel as if you have to choose sides. You as a mixed race person is completely and absolutely valid.
The world will always be an inherently nasty, disgusting, hateful place. Even beyond the racism we experience from whites, POC will always experience turmoil amongst eachother. Even Asians will mistreat other Asians. The scars of war and colonization and genocide go deep. Very, very deep. Even now that there are more public mixed figures in both Japan and Korea, these things remain. I carry the history of my people with me, both of “my people”. Things that have happened in the past and continue to happen now are not even remotely okay but if I was to denounce one half of my ethnicity and “pick sides”, that’d not only be a major “fuck you” to my parents who brought me into this world but it’d also be a backstep on relations between my people, as i’d just become another drone blindly supporting something because the greater population told me to.
I’m going to finish this off with a quote I actually found just yesterday.
“I support the idea that Hafu should be renamed as Double. We are not Hafu. We are double because both cultural and ethnic heritages make us who we are.
We are Japanese despite our mixed ethnic and cultural heritage”
— Yumi Nakata (Growing up as a hafu in Japan)
WOW! Long time no anything huh guys? Although the comic is still in development (I promise we haven’t forgotten about it), I wanted to post some stuff that I haven’t shown tumblr yet! Just some updated artwork and pitch pieces we used!
I did a little revamp of the promo image. Shaded it and made it look fancy. This is honestly what I want the whole comic to look like!

Vaccinate your kids. Don’t put other kids at risk.
yo but seriously though because some kids can’t get vaccinations because of medical reasons, or because they aren’t old enough, and by you not vaccinating your child could literally kill another one. Vaccinate your fucking children jfc
I remember watching this movie when i was like 7 years old and at the time i had no idea as to why cuba teared up cause in my head i was like “cuba calm down. he was just messing around, you didn’t die.” But now that i’m older and i see what an officer is capable of doing and getting away with, i don’t blame him for being so emotional and scared
And to see one of your own do that to you

people severely undervalue the cultural relevancy and significance of black classics from the 90’s…there are so many conversations that can be started around black motherhood, police brutality, in-fighting, etc..
