quixotic chaotic

I'm Jez, 27, American, Ace, Genderfluid, Spoonie. I used to be in the US Army, but EDS put a stop to that.

On this blog you will find some writing, some politics, occasional art, lots of feminism & Sherlock, and my own personal ramblings. Blog should probably be considered NSFW, just to be, ya know, safe.

I tag the shit out of most things, and am happy to tag anything you're trying to avoid, triggers, spoilers, etc; just let me know in an ask. I also queue almost everything, so I may or may not actually be here for any given post.

Characters: John Watson, Sherlock Holmes, Harry Watson, Original Characters
Summary:

As a terrifying new epidemic sweeps the planet, killing millions and bringing millions more back from the dead, it’s all John can do to keep Harry and himself safe, all he can do to cling to life and sanity as the world crumbles around them – while, on the other side of the globe, a certain consulting detective abandons everything he’s worked for in a desperate bid to return home.

Teen Wolf has a launched a website for “Teen Wolf fans”, which aims to have fans upload their fanwork—including fanfic, fanwork, music, poems, and meta. 
This is NOT a safe place for Teen Wolf fans (or any fans for that matter) to gather, and post their fanwork. MTV and Teen Wolf reserve the right to use your creations, and make profit from them. I, personally, find this unacceptable. Your creations, are your creations. Not theirs.
As written in the User Content Submission Agreement:

In connection with all User Content you submit using the User Content Submission Features, you grant to MTV, the Parent Companies and the Affiliates, the unqualified, unrestricted, unconditional, unlimited, worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual and royalty free right, license, authorization and permission, in any form or format, on or through any media or medium and with any technology or devices now known or hereafter developed or discovered, in whole or in part, to host, cache, store, maintain, use, reproduce, distribute, display, exhibit, perform, publish, broadcast, transmit, modify, prepare derivative works of, adapt, reformat, translate, and otherwise exploit all or any portion of your User Content on the Site (regardless of the Device through which the Site may be accessed) and any other channels, services, and other distribution platforms, whether currently existing or existing or developed in the future, of MTV, the Parent Companies and the Affiliates (collectively, the “Platforms”), for any purpose whatsoever (including, without limitation, for any promotional purposes) without accounting, notification, credit or other obligation to you, and the right to license and sub-license and authorize others to exercise any of the rights granted hereunder to MTV, the Parent Companies and Affiliates, in our sole discretion.

What exactly does this mean?
It means that they are going to use your work, your creations, for promotion and advertisement for their show—to earn themselves money—but you will NOT earn anything in return. 
You are legitimately handing over your hard work, so that they can get money, and no royalties will come to you. They can do whatever they want with your work. 
—
Furthermore, please also note that MTV, and MTVteenwolf do NOT respect slash in any nature whatsoever. Now, they may pretend that they care about all fans, however, that is a LIE. I honestly don’t want to see innocent fans fall into their lies and promises that all fans are accepted. 
Slash is huge, but they do NOT respect it. So, do not waste your time trying to put your slash work on their site. They do not appreciate it, nor do they appreciate you. 
First off, Teen Wolf queerbaits. This is the first thing that should tell you immediately that Teen Wolf does not respect slash. They use fans, mostly the fans of slash pairings, to earn themselves recognition and money, and then treat us like nothing. 
Second, I suspect most of you have already heard about Sterek material being banned from conventions. Now, while they may want you to believe that they have nothing to do with bans, and that those bans are put into place by the conventions and the actors agents, MTV and the Teen Wolf PR team are most definitely responsible for these bans. 
They have no problem banning things in relation to a popular homosexual pairing, yet they openly allow heterosexual parings to be talked about at cons, as well as they allowed fanart and fanwork of other heterosexual pairings to be signed.
Teen Wolf does NOT respect all fans. 
The Collective will be a place where fanwork of heterosexual nature will be posted without a big deal, but you will most likely find that slashwork will not be acceptable in most forms. They may, at first, allow some slash work to be posted. However, things will change. Please, do not allow yourself to be tricked and used. 
The Collective, is just a way for them to get attention. Teen Wolf is successful because of social media. It’s a huge social show, and the fans built that. However, their social media ratings are indeed falling, which I suspect is the reason this site has been created. Not because they care about fans.
They want more attention, more viewership, better ratings. This is an attempt to do so, and they are going to use fans to get better ratings. This is all a ploy to take your work, use it, and get earn themselves a pay off.
As stated in their introduction piece, they say: ”We encourage any and all “Teen Wolf” fans to sign up for The Collective and share your thoughts, opinions, and talents with us.”
However, they’ve made it quite clear that they do not care for our thoughts and opinions when they don’t suit them. Constructive criticism is ignored. When we bring up plot holes, and certain storylines that do not make sense, they ignore us and tell us that they run the show.
When we point out gross things like the non-con and abusive scenes between various couples, they ignore us as well, and continue stanning for these couples, claiming how they are cute and romantic.
As I said before, do NOT allow yourself to be fooled. They do not care about fans. They care about money, which is what they earn by keeping Teen Wolf in a high social media infused bracket. 
I encourage ALL fans, to just keep posting their fanwork (of all kinds) here on Tumblr. Share your artwork here. Share your meta here. Share your opinions here. 
Here on Tumblr, things cannot be monitored and sculpted to fit MTVteenwolf’s vision of what’s acceptable.
I also encourage ALL fans to post their fanfic on Archive of Our Own (or other fanfiction oriented sites). Ao3 accepts all work, and most definitely slash work. 
MTV, and MTVteenwolf have used us for as long as Teen Wolf has been on air. It’s time we take a stand. Please do not allow yourself to be used and exploited by using The Collective. This, in itself, is just a way for them to make money while spitting on you and your hard work. 
[Also, please spread the word about The Collective gaining immediate ownership of the work submitted on their site. Dedicated and innocent fans should not have their work stolen.]
Be safe and wise, Teen Wolf fans. 
-Cole

Ok, so I figured that perhaps not everyone is aware that this is available to use now, especially the younger folk out there.

This is OraQuick, and it is an FDA-Approved, in-home HIV test that provides results in about 20 minutes. I’m not sure about the availabilty of this product (or similar ones) in other countries, but in the U.S. you can purchase these at Walgreens for a mere 35 bucks, and you can even have them delivered to your door for complete anonymity.

Reading the results is easy. One line you are negative, two lines you are positive.

image

Why is this important? Well I know for a fact that a lot of guys say they are HIV negative without really getting tested, or they base that on some really old test result. There is no excuse now. You can get this in the mail if you want, and know for sure in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Its good peace of mind. And if you meet someone new and you are planning on playing around, its an easy and cheap thing to do to know where you guys stand. It builds trust right off the bat. Being safe is not just about wearing a condom. Its a combination of many things like trust, knowing the person, closeness, and being a good judge of character. Now on top of that you can keep up with your HIV status on a regular basis. :)

This is important for people to know, I never knew it existed

This is how my boyfriend and I tested before we started bareback in together after being with each other for 3 months. It’s super easy.

I know that it’s scary, believe me, I don’t practice risky behaviors and my anxiety was through the roof. It’s so important though you guys.

They even give you a non-descript bag to dispose of everything in.

I’m glad this is going around. :) Spread the word.

I’ve used this! It was comforting to be able to do this in my own home. Testing for something like this but it is definitely worth the purchase. It was easy to use!

Beauty and Butterfly #Sherlock#

Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.

Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.

Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.

Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).

Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.

Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.

you're alive so the government still sees use *sarcastic jab at the fucking system* I had friends at high school who only pretended to show interest in the army shit to get a pencil or whatever and 3 yrs later they're still getting reminded about that time they wrote their name and fake email address on a slip of paper in a gym of a school they don't even attend anymore
