1. hi, I'm ABCooper. You can find my fanfic over on AO3. This tumblr will mostly contain my fangirl flailing. (Also, my life mostly consists of fangirl flailing.)

  1. oh shit it’s easter, all that amazing easter candy that I haven’t been buying for the past 6 months is going to stop being in stores. I need to go get some robin eggs like asap

  2. I - I get more and more uncomfortable with ‘white girl’ jokes you guys. Because let’s be real - the actual thrust of the joke is less about the “white” part and more about the “girl” part. Like - by all means dissect the privilege at that intersection, and especially critique feminism that focuses exclusively on educated white women, because that is some bullshit. And I realize that especially women of color have the right to be really frustrated and pissed off and to express that.

    But like… “white girl being whiny at starbucks in her uggs”, that’s not about a critique of privilege, that’s a rephrase of “white girls are stupid” “white girls are shallow and self-obsessed.” And the idea that girls are stupid and shallow and self-obsessed is not a new joke, it’s not a joke about privilege. It is a common misogynistic joke, and you are sharing a laugh with every sexist frat-boy on the planet. These jokes are not taking aim at the places where white women are privileged for their whiteness - they are falling into line with the places where white women are oppressed for their womanhood.

  3. Bring consent out of the bedroom. I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party, try a new food, get up and dance, make small talk at the lunchtable—that’s their right. Stop the “aww c’mon” and “just this once” and the games where you playfully force someone to play along. Accept that no means no—all the time.

  6. today olivia and I are having a sister day. I am wearing a shirt she and Jo gave me, and she is wearing a shirt I gave her, and we are going to bake banana bread and then go out to lunch and to barnes and noble.

  7. ohmygod, everyone in my life is so cute, what the hell, all of you stop it

  8. Guys, I really really love Agents of SHIELD, but can we talk about how Ward’s whole existence does not make sense at all.

    Like… he is just a boring dude. Literally nothing about him is interesting or engaging at all. He is the least interesting character on the show and possibly of all time. And somehow we’re supposed to believe at this point that Agent Melinda I-Will-Kick-Your-Ass-Before-Breakfast May has broken her own rules and fallen in love with him, that Skye is also interested in him, maybe Simmons swoons a little over him, he has “the best combat scores since Romanov” or whatever the fuck they said even though there is no reason he SHOULD be as good as a woman who was brainwashed into being a super-fighter from childhood, and now he’s a secret HYDRA agent? 

    I just hate him so much, maybe now that he’s evil or something he’ll get killed off and we’ll be done having them go, “woo, our team is 50% straight white guys, and 50% everyone else in the world! That’s what equal representation means!!”

  9. this week we are working on Overreactions. Because yesterday someone splashed some water at Olivia and she cried about it on and off for like the next 8 hours. And the other day her mom said, “you’re just like your grannie” and she was so insulted she cried herself to sleep, which is flattering to no one.
