Darker thoughts perch in the branches of Will’s mind.
I’m in that mood where I’m so deep in fanfiction land that I forget about tumblr.
It’s been a while…and its making me really happy.
Wild domesticated shit
Next time on, “I shouldn’t be alive”
Chasing and playing with prey is instinctive with cats, but they have to learn how to kill. So if your cat has never had another cat show them how, they may do something like this.
I had two indoor-only cats in a mousy apartment once, and I swear the only way they ever killed a mouse was by running it around until it had a heart attack. When I moved out of the city and started letting them out of the house, they would bring live mice into the house and let them go. That was when I decided I needed to get a third cat, one that had been properly educated.
I do what he does, just slower.

hey pal, fuck you.
joss whedon probably wasn’t out to offend me personally, no, but guess what butterplum, he did anyway.
because i grew up in a neighbourhood where the other parents told their children they weren’t allowed to play with me because i was dirty and untrustworthy and a thief.
because i had ethnic slurs hurled at me from my fellow students and other residents throughout the majority of my life. because the german word for gypsy was spraypainted onto our house wall 8 times throughout the years we lived there and, on one memorable occasion, keyed into my mum’s car.
because my mum’s mother died in a russian concentration camp and no one would help her father raise his five daughters alone because everyone viewed him as waste, expendable.
because my mother eventually had to fend for herself on the streets as an orphan when she was only 13 years old because she had literally no other choice. because she was mistreated in the orphanage she eventually went to, and because she was thrown out of three schools for “misconduct” that was really just profiling based on the fact that she had roma heritage.
because even though she managed to leave that part of her life mostly behind and found a family and get a job, her sisters weren’t so lucky. one of them permanently ended up in a mental institution after being denied healthcare by the country she lived in due to her heritage and her psychosis grew unchecked until it evolved into fullblown schizophrenia. one of them killed herself. she hasn’t heard from the other two in years and isn’t even sure if they’re alive anymore.
because 90% of roma people live in poverty. because 45% of those fall under extreme poverty with living conditions without water and electricity and basic things like food. (x)
so yes, i take it personally. because it is fucking personal.
the maximoffs were literally the only representation of romani people i’ve encountered so far that weren’t either a stereotype or a criminal. the fact that they were allowed to be heroes and stand for positive ideals despite their background was revolutional for me when i first learned about them, because my entire life i’ve been made to feel that being roma is bad and disgusting.
it’s bad enough that wanda maximoff was already turned into an ableist joke and fridged twice in the comics.
and joss whedon looked at their background history and how hugely important it is for minorities and deemed it not important enough to be included.
that’s especially horrible considering the fact that not only are roma people treated like scum everywhere, anti-semitism is still very much a constant threat to jewish people everywhere and anti-semitic hate crimes are on a rise.
the fact that joss whedon didn’t even waste one thought on the repercussions of his decision when he retconned the maximoff twins to be british is frankly disgusting and speaks volumes about the kind of person he is.
and if you look at his decision and find absolutely nothing wrong with it, then it speaks volumes about the kind of person you are, too.
Just want to add one comment: I’m tired of the “he just wanted to give young up and coming actors a chance” excuse.
heteronormativity is genderbending main characters just to permit non-platonic interactions between the characters.
i’m looking at you, elementary.
that’s really cute how you dismiss the importance of replacing a white male literary icon with a woman of color and ignore how much pride people have in joan to say she only exists to bang someone she hasn’t kissed, come close to kissing, or come close to even wanting to kiss in nearly 2 entire seasons
a d o r a b l e
Also? The fact that there are several queer characters in Elementary but that the creators of BBC Sherlock have repeatedly stated that Sherlock and John are straight whilst queerbaiting the fuck out of the audience?
You’re right. That’s not heteronormative at all.
