"We’re trying to Out Fox the Fox…"
au: lydia, kira and malia decide to try and contact an old friend.
so that happened.
I’ve recently discovered a local TNR (trap, neuter, release) program for stray cats in my city. It’s the first TNR program that I have seen in our city, which is actually a huge deal. They are looking to raise $2,500 to help with the cost of transferring the cats to get them neutered/spayed. The volunteers have to drive a little over an hour away to Warren, MI with the cats.
If you’re interested in making a small donation you can at the link below!
Please help support this as it’s the first TNR in my city and it would mean A LOT to me and the animals <3 even if you can’t donate, please please please reblog

Not who are you. Who are we!
Sterek AU - Where Stiles and Derek are serial killers (prequel)
"Derek, don’t you think you’ve had enough? You’ve been stabbed, betrayed, shot, impaled, tortured, dragged through the mud, electrocuted, your entire family was murdered and your uncle is fucking crazy. Plus-"
"…I get it, Stiles. What is your point?"
"Don’t you think it’s about time you get some revenge? The world has fucked you over, I think it’s time to do a little fucking of your own, or well, stabbing, impaling, etc., etc."
"I’m not a killer. You and I both know that."
"Yeah, but you’re a predator. So, let’s play a game, Derek. Let’s chase some prey. And maybe we can enjoy the meat of our labor.”
"You and me, Derek. Lets make out like lovers do. On a bed of red.”

(but one of these days i’ll draw something without smoke in it… maybe)
I wanted to color something haha @w@;
being a real brat before the party!
A friend and I were out with our kids when another family’s two-year-old came up. She began hugging my friend’s 18-month-old, following her around and smiling at her. My friend’s little girl looked like she wasn’t so sure she liked this, and at that moment the other little girl’s mom came up and got down on her little girl’s level to talk to her.
“Honey, can you listen to me for a moment? I’m glad you’ve found a new friend, but you need to make sure to look at her face to see if she likes it when you hug her. And if she doesn’t like it, you need to give her space. Okay?”
Two years old, and already her mother was teaching her about consent.
My daughter Sally likes to color on herself with markers. I tell her it’s her body, so it’s her choice. Sometimes she writes her name, sometimes she draws flowers or patterns. The other day I heard her talking to her brother, a marker in her hand.
“Bobby, do you mind if I color on your leg?”
Bobby smiled and moved himself closer to his sister. She began drawing a pattern on his leg with a marker while he watched, fascinated. Later, she began coloring on the sole of his foot. After each stoke, he pulled his foot back, laughing. I looked over to see what was causing the commotion, and Sally turned to me.
“He doesn’t mind if I do this,” she explained, “he is only moving his foot because it tickles. He thinks its funny.” And she was right. Already Bobby had extended his foot to her again, smiling as he did so.
What I find really fascinating about these two anecdotes is that they both deal with the consent of children not yet old enough to communicate verbally. In both stories, the older child must read the consent of the younger child through nonverbal cues. And even then, consent is not this ambiguous thing that is difficult to understand.
Teaching consent is ongoing, but it starts when children are very young. It involves both teaching children to pay attention to and respect others’ consent (or lack thereof) and teaching children that they should expect their own bodies and their own space to be respected—even by their parents and other relatives.
And if children of two or four can be expected to read the nonverbal cues and expressions of children not yet old enough to talk in order to assess whether there is consent, what excuse do full grown adults have?
I try to do this every day I go to nursery and gosh it makes me so happy to see it done elsewhere.
