a little love story about mermaids and tattoos
I once went to the Renaissance Fair dressed as Marty McFly, and nobody got the joke.
That will forever be one of the most disappointing moments in my life.This is my favorite photoset rn
I totally get this guy. A whole fair of nerds and no one got a awesome 80s pop culture reference. Shame. The faces are amazing.
this is terrifying
this is like an unintentional Kubrick film
what’s the word for horrific and adorable all at once
The one thing I think fanfic authors miss, is Rhodey went to MIT with Tony. His major was probably aerospace engineering, since many Air Force officer candidates major in this area. You know what another name for an…
Adapt to this
LET ME JUST POINT OUT THE VARIOUS FLAWS OF LOGIC HERE. FIRST OF ALL DARWINS POWER IS TO LITERALLY ADAPT TO ANYTHING IN THE EFFING UNIVERSE. HIS POWERS DEEMED IT TOO DANGEROUS TO FIGHT THE HULK AND TELEPORTED HIM TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. HE ONCE BECAME PURE COSMIC EFFING ENERGY AND SHORTLY AFTER REMATERIALIZED AS A HUMAN BEING TO PREVENT HIS DEATH. DARWIN IS LITERALLY INEFFINGVINCIBLE. AND YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT A PATHETIC BALL OF KINETIC ENERGY FROM SEBASTIAN SHAW MERKS HIM?!?!?! THEY OBVIOUSLY ARE OUT TO KILL THE BLACK MAN IN THE PLOT AND LITERALLY WROTE THIS SCENE WITH NO REGARDS TO DARWINS POWERS WHATSOEVER AND ITS FRUSTRATING THAT THEY WOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO KILL HIM OFF LIKE THAT
I’m saying. Even in sci fi we ain’t safe
in my headcanon darwin literally became a being of energy and ascended to another plain of existence so he doesn’t have to deal with anymore of this white nonsense
Even in Scifi? We not safe in real life.
thank you I’ve been saying this for the longest!!!!! He is a damn omega level mutant, meaning in the movie he would be a class 5! Dude even adapted into a God and became the God of Death! Dude was college educated in the comics and they made him a taxi driver…like Black folks weren’t educated in the 70’s. And they didn’t even acknowledge that he was an Afro Latino…his name is Armando Munoz, he’s one of the few Afro latino superheros and they did him so dirty.
A movie that’s a metaphor for prejudice/racism/etc did the black guy dirty.
The death of Armando is something that would quake the Marvel universe. It would disestablish the fabric of what they know. Every single Watcher in the Multiverse would converge to witness what can kill Armando. A measly, tiny, insignificant podunk Hellfire member can’t do shit to Pheonix let alone Darwin. Onslaught theoretically couldn’t kill Darwin. Thanos theoretically couldn’t kill Darwin with the Infinity Gauntlet. You’re trying to tell me SABASTIAN SHAW has that kind of power? Darwin would just turn into Vibranium, and he’d spit that shit right back out like it was NOTHING.
Was just reminded of the fact that Tavros can’t fit all the way inside of his recupracoon because of his huge horns, which “makes it hard to get any solid shuteye”.
But consider that the beta trolls need sopor slime to “assuage the terrible visions of blood and carnage that plague the dark subconscious of your species" — which means that Tavros was at best dealing with sleep deprivation and at worst had terrible nightmares all the time.
And yet he’s still Tavros. A basically decent unapologetically nerdy kid who manages to soldier on through a hell of a lot.
That child is a BAMF and don’t you dare think otherwise.
By now, I’m sure a lot of you have seen this post going around where someone points out that the Hot Topic exclusive Homestuck shirt features white-washing where darker skin was depicted in the original art.
However, that post had a million different trains, and the OP wasn’t the one to point it out, so about half the people reblogging it have no idea that the original art was altered.
Even some of those who have seen the evidence are blaming things like lighting, filters, or printing restrictions for the altered design. All of that is bullshit, and I’ll show you why.
For your comparison, this is the original:

And here are some photos I grabbed from Instagram:
As you can see, in each of these, John’s skin tone is much lighter than in the original submitted to the contest. This can only have been done deliberately, and what do we call the deliberate lightening of skin? White-washing!
As I said above, some people are of the opinion that is could have been done for any number of reasons, but it’s plain to see that it’s was done specifically so that each human character would appear white. Why is this obvious?
- The only other colour changes are the colour of shirt it’s printed on, so it can’t be a ‘printing restriction’ based on colour
- These images all have different lighting/angles and were all taken by different people
- Different or no filters have been applied, yet John’s skin is still visibly paler in comparison to everything else than it was in the original
This art was altered with purpose, there’s no two ways about it.
So what can we do?
Don’t stay ignorant. Get mad, and stay mad. Reblog this post. Contact Hot Topic and What Pumpkin to point out what this is and why it’s wrong. Tell everyone you know about how gross it is that this has happened.
This is the cutest thing!!
