if lucifer needs someones consent to enter their body then so do you
It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.
Am I still allowed to like them?
Yes. No one is stopping you from doing anything. You can like and consume their work without liking them as a person. You can even like them as a person, so long as you recognize that they do have problematic issues.
How can I be a good fan?
Try and make them a better person. If they do something problematic, call them out on it. I recognize that famous people are busy and don’t read every single Twitter reply or Facebook comment they get, but still try it. At the very least, you’ll be educating other fans.
How can I be a conscious fan?
Recognize that they did something wrong. Accept it. Don’t try to defend it or explain it. Say “so-and-so makes great music, but I wish they weren’t racist” or “I think that they’re really talented, but they are also sexist”. It’s a package deal. Tell other fans what they did. When praising them, don’t ignore the problematic stuff. Talk about that too.
I thought it was appropriate to bring this back in light of the John Green post blowing up

So we’re listening to music and up next was a LOTR play along midi file for my clarinet students…
Im all for girls drawing and writing self indulgent bullshit, especially considering about 97% of the media around today is just men writing and drawing self indulgent bullshit

So can we talk about the fact that that means there were 3 Rory’s in the world at the same time?
Season 9 - Sammy Brainy Moments: Everybody Hates Hitler (1/?)
Dean: Is it a combination?
Sam memorized the filing system from the Library of Congress, knowing right away it was “Science”. This makes me imagine all those days he spent in the library doing research for a hunt, wandering up and down the stacks, falling asleep in the mythology section.
I love Dean’s little smirk at the end. He’s like “See look how smart my little brother is. That’s my Sammy for you.”
I’ll bet Sam can do Dewey Decimal as well. And I bet the MoL have their own arcane cataloguing system, and mastering it has been one of Sam’s favorite things in the last year. And, you know, even in the magic climate control of the bunker, some of the collection is not in the best shape. Sam is going to start reading up on preservation and conservation. He’s going to get into rare books, because that is one amazing collection they’ve got, and if he doesn’t look after it, who will? He’s going to sign up for the occasional session of Rare Book School, a few days in summer when he’s not hunting or dealing with the end of the universe, just getting into codicology. And you think with the kind of books and manuscripts Sam’s dealing with it’s just the texts that are significant? No, I bet there are arcane and magical things with typefaces and bindings and watermarks and scripts, and Sam is going to be figuring out whole new layers of meaning. He’s going to find a few, scattered scholars from the organization Aaron’s grandfather was in, and from other organizations in other traditions, and he’s going to visit some other libraries. And he’s going to do it in a sweater vest, because it feels right on him, it doesn’t feel like one of their disguises, it feels like who’s he’s becoming. And maybe peering at glosses will eventually put a strain on his eyes, and he’ll need glasses.
I may have thought about this.
