for west is where we all plan to go some day

Hello, I'm Svenja. Um...I like books, the stories people have to tell and cookies, and I'm apparantly not very good at writing blog describtions.

my mum thinks I’m wearing sunglasses inside because I want to seem cool and edgy

little does she know it’s because my eyes are puffy from crying in the bathroom over the fact that I’m so pathetic that I didn’t manage to go to Italian class because the door was closed and I was too scared

Important! Wear headphones! This is a brief overview over the stuff I enjoy:

My favourite ASMR person and my favourite Video,a Spa roleplay. All her other videos are great, too, and her sense of humour is awesome.

This Person makes the cutest roleplays and her accent is very cute

A video with tapping sounds, which you’ll find quite often, this one being of my favourites

There’s also some ASMR men around, I love this guys Doctor Visit roleplay and he’s also very cute.

I dunno if you follow albinwonderland, but she also does ASMR vids, I like this one where she reads a story

The first ASMR video I ever watched was this hair brushing video, I guess hair brushing is one of the most common triggers

I really need to mention this ASMR person, she’s such a wonderful, positive person and her videos are very relaxing

There are of course many many more types of vids and many more amazing people who make vids, but I tried to make it short. I hope you enjoy some of it. And if you are a bit weirded out by it at first that’s perfectly normal :)

Countdown to Foxglove Summer | Archive of Our Own



a while ago I asked if anyone was interested in taking part in a fan works collection for Foxglove Summer by Ben Aaronovitch. Now, here it is! :-)

Here we will try to bridge the unbearable gap that has again opened up between Broken Homes and Foxglove Summer. From July 17th, the original release date, until September 24th, depending on the actual release date, we will hopefully have one new, amazing piece of work to look forward to on a daily basis! Sign up now!

Awesome! I just love the idea. I will join as soon as I’ve checked my calendar for the time. And it might be a good motivation to get drawing & writing again.

there seems to be a revival of the meat post

what happened




How long until the 15 year olds take over this post with their garbage

I’ve stopped being 15 years old long enough that I have the privilege of occasionally saying something that is not garbage so let’s try to pull it off.

What you are trying to express with this comic is problematic. The idea that tumblr or more specifically social justice activist don’t know that these people exist is not only false (they do), but feeds into a shallow narrative of what social justice is and how it should relate to the individual.

As the name implies, social justice is social, the opposite of individual. As an individual you are entitled to your opinion. You have no problem being called faggot? You’re right. Want to try your bindi on your white friend that looks supercute in it? There is no social justice police going to stop you from that. But the moment in which you don’t recognize that no matter what your opinion is, and no matter what your feelings on these issues are these actions harm your group at a societal level, then you are wrong. Not as a matter of opinions anymore, but as a matter of facts.

Cultural appropriation (bindi/dreads), microaggressions (faggot/racial prejudice), lack of representation (transexuality awareness) and claims of “reverse sexism” are hurting minorities, no matter what anyone’s opinion on these issues is. Research out there that shows that all the problems you are tackling here harm at a societal level the same people you have depicted here as not affected by them at an individual one. 

As an example, I have OCD, and I really do not care about people who say things like “oh I’m so OCD”. I understand that they mean no harm to me, I understand that their ignorance is not their fault, and I understand that is just a word. I don’t care about all this. BUT when this illness keeps being trivialized as a character quirk a lot of bad shit happens at a societal level: people getting told they should just get over it, people who fit the diagnosis not recognizing that they have it because OCD is wrongly represented, people being denied accommodations for their disability because OCD is not so badand so on. Did this ever happen to me? No. It didn’t affect me as an individual (yet). But it does affect me society, and it is my duty as a member of a larger group to take a step back, to realize that not everyone is going to be as lucky as I am, and realize that my individual thoughts and experiences do not matter when other people out there are suffering from the results of that harmless ignorance I could easily ignore based on my individual experience. And after I’ve done that I need to call out that ignorance, because the moment in which I justify that ignorance on the base that as an individual, I am not affected by it is the moment in which I become the oppressor of the same minority I belong in.

Kudos to you for this excellent response. The distinction between individual issues and societal ones is really important.
