Lemonade and Quetzalcoatl

A fanfiction author based in Detroit, MI. I like to show the world that I'm unreasonably obsessed with Yu-Gi-Oh! and lurk around the blogs of people I like. Quetzalcoatl eats all my questions and is sustained by my participation in discussions. Keep them coming so that he won't eat me instead .__. Other things I like include Yaoi, Anime in general, Doctor Who, Nerdfighteria, Supernatural and Whose Line Is It Anyway? Occasionally I'll post my works. I also like prompts!

"Books! The greatest weapons in the world!" - Doctor Who, “Tooth and Claw”

We know that a lot of our followers are big Doctor Who fans, and we also know that the Doctor himself is a big fan of books! So in honor of the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who that airs tomorrow, Saturday, November 23rd, we’ve translated some of our favorite The Fault In Our Stars quotes into Gallifreyan, the Doctor’s native language!

If you translate your favorite book quotes into Gallifreyan and post them to Tumblr with the hashtag #penguin teen, we will reblog as many as we can throughout the weekend! Don’t speak Gallifreyan? No worries—here is a helpful translator (or, if you don’t want to download a program, try this online translator). We can’t wait to see what you guys create!

(Thanks go out to Rosianna for the fabulous idea, and the “I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once” image above.)

Holy wow those uniforms are cool. (Reblogging to double Hank’s chance of seeing them, because this is a mash-up of his two favorite things.)

Chimamanda Adichie - The Danger of a Single Story (TED Talks 2009)

Tell me again, what did you say about representation not being important?

This gifset goes perfectly with an article I just read. This is why media representation is so important. Because it brainwashes our children to not even see themselves in their OWN stories.

Just read Adichie’s new novel Americanah, which I highly recommend. Great book, and not too much weather in it.

Does money make you mean? In a talk at TEDxMarin, social psychologist Paul Piff shares his research into how people behave when they feel wealthy. (Hint: badly.)

To learn more, watch the whole talk here»

I have a theory about this, which is completely unsupported by data and might be totally wrong.

I think people like to believe that their choices matter. We don’t like to consider the role that luck and circumstance plays in human life, because it makes us feel powerless and ultimately like maybe we should not even bother to get out of bed in the morning. So we find ways to imagine that we can make our own destinies and that we are in control of our own lives.

To an extent, of course, we are. Our choices do matter. But so do chance and privilege.

But I think most people want a narrative of their lives that is about something other than dumb luck. So if you become powerful or wealthy, you start to think, "This happened because I worked hard," because you did work hard. You think, "This happened because I didn’t give up," because you didn’t give up.

But THEN there is this nagging feeling that haunts you, because you know that other people also work hard and that other people also don’t give up, and that they have not experienced the same success you have.

In short, deep down you know that the game of Monopoly, through chance or through systemic injustice, has been rigged in your favor. And that makes you feel like everything is random and meaningless and you are unworthy of your good fortune, and I think many people respond to that feeling defensively: They want you to know that they made a really amazing decision to buy Park Avenue, a bold and dangerous decision. And yes, they started the game with more money, but lots of people start the game with more money and DON’T make the bold and brilliant decision to buy Park Avenue.

And in the end, this desire to build a narrative of your success that gives you agency within your own life leads to a less compassionate life. It also often I think leads to echo chambers: Because any challenge to your “I earned it” worldview is a direct attack on your feeling that you are in control of your life, you have to surround yourself with people whose own life experiences do not contradict that worldview. This is the only reason I can think of that wealthy people are literally more likely to take candy from children.

The challenge—and this is a challenge for all of us—is to internalize the roles luck and systemic injustice play in our lives while still continuing to try to be good and useful creatures.

Hazel is different. She walks lightly, old man. She walks lightly upon the earth. Hazel knows the truth: We’re as likely to hurt the universe as we are to help it, and we’re not likely to do either.

Lovely.
