THINGS I WEREN’T EXPECTING
When? Who? … Why?
Somewhere, a web developer is in stitches.
AHAHA! Worth it!
“I, like many others, am convinced that The Blue Fairy is the root of all evil. She’s behind everything. If that becomes canon, then she is more powerful and manipulative than Regina and Rumple combined. And I just love her for that.”
I swear, if the last season of Once is not everyone coming together to battle the Blue Fairy, I am going to be so disappointed. Having her be the mastermind of everything would be perfect, because damn it all to hell if that fairy is not the root of all (curse) evil:
- She started the idea of a curse by splitting up Rumplestiltskin and Baelfire and hinting to Rumple that a curse was the only thing that could possibly reunite them
- Turns an innocent but guilt-ridden boy into a cricket and sends him to care for Geppetto, then turns Geppetto’s wooden son into a real boy, turning all into allies for when the time comes for the curse to be cast—which she actively promotes by ‘putting all hope on Emma to save them’ and providing the idea for the magical wardrobe
- Keeps Nova and Dreamy apart, causing Dreamy to become Grumpy, who—because he still loved Nova—ends up trapped in King George’s dungeons where he meets Snow White and helps her escape, setting into motion the events of bringing Snow White and Charming together, creating Emma, and getting the curse to work
- Punishes Tinker Bell for trying to help Regina, causing Regina to lose her one friend and her one shot at happiness—running counter to her modus operandi with Jiminy and Geppetto and bringing the curse one step closer
- Actively helps capture the Queen and strongly calls for her death, yet seems very pleased when Snow White yells to hold the arrows
- She is there to stop Cinderella from having to give up her child to Rumplestiltskin—she paralyzes him and Rumplestiltskin is locked up in the Dark Dungeon where Snow White and Charming can come to him and he learns Emma’s name—and where the Evil Queen is able to seal the deal with him on casting the curse.
- The Blue Fairy is the main proponent of just letting the curse happen—not fight against it like most want to do—and is thus inadvertently responsible for Emma being separated from her parents, and fully responsible for giving the Evil Queen the time and freedom she needs to cast the curse
- …and the worst thing is that she manages to pull all of this off while looking completely innocent!
My main question is ‘why?’; what good did/could the Dark Curse do for a being literally thousands of years old? I’m banking on the last season being all about that (at least it bloody well should be!), because for now, the Blue Fairy has all the time in the world to just sit out current events.
Fail with consequence. Lose with eloquence. And smile.
Here’s a test:
I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.
I’m going to drop one. You chose which.
If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.
Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.
Because you’re aware there’s a difference.
Now admit it
Harnaam was just 11 years old when the beard started appearing and she spent her teenage years desperately trying to remove it. She would try to remove it by waxing twice a week.
The primary school teaching assistant endured vile abuse at school and would be stared at in the street. She became so self conscious she refused to leave her house, except to go to lessons. At her lowest point she began self harming and even considered taking her own life.
But at the age of 16, she found the courage to accept her facial hair after being baptised as a Sikh. The religion dictates that the body should be left in its natural state and body hair must be left to grow.
Harnaam was determined to show that she was beautiful no matter what she looked like.
Anonymous asked: Hello beautiful person, I'm just stopping by to thank you for participating in the big bang. I love stories and I am forever grateful to the people who create them. So, thank you very much for your patience and creativity. Don't forget the fun in writing and remember that even a small amount of words today gets you further along in total. Happy writing, your friendly cheerleader
Thank you so much! I really needed this bit of cheerleading today as I prepare to open my story again and work on it again. <3
Anonymous asked: Hello writer! I'm looking forward to reading your Big Bang story! Just remember, your word count after a sprint is never "only," because it's more than you had before. If you get stuck, or need help with editing, that's what the betas and cheerleaders are for, don't be afraid to hit any of us up!
Thank you, anon! I’m hoping that people will love the story I”m writing when it’s finished. And yes, I need to do a few sprints to get myself back on track for word count.
Anonymous asked: Someone forgets I pay attention, sweetheart. As I've said a few times before, you're going to have to wait until July for anything further. If NZ does extradite Dotcom, they can do the same to me when and if the Feds ask. Too bad they've had to wait two and a half years, kike bitch.
I apologize for the language above, but it is left whole to show a rather ugly point.
So: My ask box is closed now.
And I’m doing something very, very, very rarely do, and my friends have been begging me to do about this whole thing since day one: meet it head on.
The above ask was sent in by my stalker. This is why my ask box remains closed.
Maybe it is time to show what stalking really is and does.
Imagine getting messages, the type of which make the above seem mild and sweet (add in sexual threats, death threats, and vows to be up to this forever), any time you have any ability for anyone to contact you.
Every day. At times multiple times a day, sometimes in a stream of messages that clog your inbox.
And when you never once address that, they start contacting your friends, your sister, your parents. Your brother in law. Your infant nephew/godson.
Threatens them consistently. Sends them packages. Sends them postcards. Look sup their private info and parade it in front of them.
For 5.5 years.
Things that thus far haven’t helped: An arrest. An international warrant. International attention. Stays in mental health facilities. Nothing deters this behavior.
Stalking is one of the crimes that takes the victim out of the equation, because of how likely it is that being in it exacerbates the situation. And if we do nothing and let the world exist like this, we are enabling a kind of malice that could threaten the very positive and at times powerful ways we exchange ideas and connect to each other.
The Internet is the wild west, and at some point the cavalry’s gotta come in, here.
The FBI has been amazing but are limited by a foreign nation’s wish to completely ignore a situation that has been proven many times over to exist.
I can only be so defiant in private while balancing the need for my and my family’s safety.
You may think, “I’ve seen her at LeakyCons, she’s not affected by this at all!” Never make an assumption by the strength someone is able to project that they are unaffected. And never assume that someone who doesn’t give her life over to something negative completely - disappear from the internet, etc - doesn’t just as much peace and justice as those whose lives lose major functions because of this activity. There is sometimes a paternalistic rise in compassion that rises to meet the level to which a person has been affected. If we start judging that way, we forget that no matter the victim and no matter the effect, the crime is the same and it must be stopped.
So there you go. A glimpse into my life.
If you wish to stand against stalking, please reblog; and as a bonus, please add your own thoughts about the necessity that a country’s law enforcement agency (in this case New Zealand’s) starts to take this seriously.
This may be the most important thing I ever reblog, and I really hope you take the time to read it.
I’ve known Melissa throughout much of this and I’ve seen the hurt and damage it has caused. I’ve seen her get not one, but HUNDREDS of highly graphic and possibly viable rape and death threats from this stalker. The notes come into every part of Melissa’s life, pretty much every day. They are both electronic and physical. They go to her family. They threaten everything about her life.
The note you see above is NOTHING compared to some that have come in.
I also get notes from this stalker. As I post this, I set myself up to get more. I send them to the FBI, as I have been instructed. The case file grows.
This has gone on for five and a half years.
It’s hard to keep silent while someone goes through this.
I hope that the stalker actually gets the medical treatment she so desperately needs. She is a danger to herself as much as anything else. I have gotten at least one letter from her that was a detailed suicide threat. She has also cut her own wrists and posted the picture online. She very, very much needs help.
I hope Melissa gets justice. She needs her life back.
And I hope this helps pave a way for more victims of online stalking to get the help and protection they need.
