I feel like this is actually really accurate for me.

"Until we have seen someone’s darkness, we don’t really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone’s darkness, we don’t really know what love is."

(I don’t know if you answered this already or not, so I’ll ask again.) I’m writing a realistic story about the asylums of the last century (something like in American Horror Story). I’m Spanish, so I’m not very familiar with American/English…

The way that the Stand Your Ground statute is used in jury instructions boils down to this: ALL THAT ANY NON-BLACK SHOOTER NEEDS TO DO IS TO SAY THAT THEY WERE AFRAID FOR THEIR LIFE…because scary Black person. It matters very little if the so-called “reasonable fear” existed in reality, or only in someone’s mind, or not at all

Newsflash: ANY given reason =/= “reasonable fear”

I’ve sat on a jury as a foreman before, and please believe me when I say…during deliberations in the jury room, “reasonable” can easily become, “well, he did give a reason for his fear" if someone strong (or Black) isn’t there to immediately shoot that thought process down

Here is the complete text of the Florida #SYG statute (written by ALEC, btw) which ultimately finds it’s way into Florida’s self defense (aka #SYG) jury instructions

But here’s how the interpretation plays out:

Make no mistake: Dunn didn’t use the words ‘gangster’ and ‘thug’ in his testimony by mistake. You don’t have to look any further than the glaring difference between how Richard Sherman was derided and pilloried as a “thug” vs. when White people like Mayor Rob Ford and Michael Grimm (R-NY) aren’t even arrested after being caught on film using drugs or making credible death threats, let alone not called a thug. Those two words—thug and gangster—and many more have become heavily weaponized and racialized, and they are ‘polite’ stand ins for the n-word. And that coded language didn’t just happen all on it’s own

And let’s be real here, for far too many armed White people, unfamiliar Black bodies are plenty of reason to be fearful…all the way to the point of immediately applying lethal force (please see also: implicit shooter bias, Renisha McBride, Jonathan Ferrell, etcetc, etc, etc, etc)

This has to stop

someone accidentally dropped a camera out of a plane and it’s I think my favourite film now

how Gravity should have ended tbh

closer to the end the camera apparently turned around itself 30 times a second, which corresponds to the framerate 30fps, making the image appear like a stabilized flight

why does everything have to be solved by true love’s kiss like why can’t things be set right by true friendship’s high five, embrace, and session of several songs sang together loudly and off-key

I think a more important question is why does everyone think true love’s kiss has to be romantic

Yes~
Soul mates can be platonic, true love can be platonic, and kisses can be platonic.

The fact that there is no romance doesn’t make it any less real~

Anonymous Asked:
Okay, normally I'm pretty google savvy, but I can't find an answer to this anywhere and I was hoping you might know, since you're published. Is it rude or a bad idea to send your work to multiple publishing houses at once? I've read they can take a long time to respond, but what if more than one wants to pick it up? Is that okay? So you just go with the best offer?

fictionwritingtips:

They’ll usually state in their guidelines if they accept simultaneous submissions. I usually always submit to several publishing companies at the same time. You can wait up to a year to hear back from some people, so it always seemed ridiculous to me for publishing companies to request that you wait.

If more than one publishing company decides they want to work with you and you haven’t signed any contracts yet, it’s definitely up to you to decide. It is nice to let the one you didn’t decide to work with know that’ll you’ll be publishing with someone else. Also, if someone asks for a few chapters or your entire novel to read and you decide to go with someone else, let them know. That way you keep a good relationship with them in the future.
