Anonymous asked: didn't kisame have kids trailing after him because of the whole seven swordsman of the mist thing? suigetsu, in particular was implied to have known him. so he'd be somewhat used to looking after kids. i can just seeing getting annoyed because after leaving mist he'd thought he was done with babysitting, lol.

And then there was Haku… *snicker* Can you see it? the Seven Demon Babysitters of the Mist!

Poor Kisame, perpetually surrounded by kids with sharp objects. At least Itachi didn’t need to be taught anything.

hamelin-born asked: Headcanon: Yoko once considered telling Naruto about the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but decided the risk that the blonde would take it *seriously* was far too high.

Also, as much as Yoko is amused by most of Pastafarianism, they Do Not Approve of the idea of a ‘stripper factory’. It offends them on a very basic level. Yoko was part of a poor, urban queer community in their past life. They knew a bunch of sex workers. They loved a bunch of sex workers. And they will rip your throat out with their teeth if you suggest sex workers of any stripe are disposable, interchangeable commodities.

No way are they risking Naruto spreading that idea they way he does others. Then they’d have to go around murdering everyone who took it up, and Yoko doesn’t have time for that sort of nonsense.

Anonymous asked: "If I talk down to people enough by calling them mouthbreathers and cowards, then that'll make me win arguments! I have no problem with taking statistics where women are disadvantaged face value as truth and basing my beliefs off of them, but if you bring me similar statistics for men, then I'll want to look at every variable I can for an excuse as to why they're false! Conformation bias is wonderful!" - Greg Rucka's insecure-as-fuck subconscious

Well, you’ve certainly shown me.

Coward.

Have I mentioned how much I love Greg Rucka? Because I love him very much.

The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force. 

If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America. 

via Vice:

What the person running the Twitter account probably failed to realize is that most people’s interactions with the cops fall into a few categories:

1. You are talking to them to get help after you or someone you knew was robbed, beaten, murdered, or sexually assaulted.

2. You are getting arrested. 

3. You are getting beaten by the police.

In category 1, you are probably not going to be like, “Oh, let me take a selfie with you fine officers so I can remember this moment,” and the other two categories are not things that the NYPD would like people on social media talking about. Additionally, the people who use Twitter a lot (and who aren’t Sonic the Hedgehog roleplayers) are the type who love fucking with authority figures. In any case, #myNYPD quickly became a trending topic in the United States, largely because people were tweeting and retweeting horrific images of police brutality perpetrated by New York City cops.

In which the NYPD’s attempt at “public relations” backfires tremendously.

this had me dying of laughter

okay but what if Steve didn’t know many slang terms for hetero sex because he hit puberty surrounded by queer culture and oKAY LOOK, FONDUE SOUNDS LIKE IT COULD BE SLANG FOR THAT SHIT. IT MADE SENSE TO HIM AT THE TIME. THE FUCK DID YOU WANT FROM HIM; HE KNOWS LIKE TWELVE DIFFERENT WAYS TO SAY ‘BACK-ALLEY BLOWJOB’ BUT THAT SHIT ISN’T APPLICABLE HERE, IS IT

Kisame is totally Itachi’s pseudo-parent, isn’t he? Or at least older sibling/guardian like figure, seriously. He nags Itachi about using his eyes too much and interferes when Naruto tries to attack, even though the kid could hardly hurt Itachi.

(Tell me there is fic out there of Kisame privately pitching a fit over suddenly being responsible for keeping a traumatized, sick 13 year old alive and useful to the organization. Tell me there is fic out there where Kisame has to engage in some act of parenting, to Itachi and his mutual mortification. Please, that’s all I ask of this fandom.)

hamelin-born asked: Ever read Bujold, by the way? I hesitate to introduce more fandoms into this, but Yoko would probably take the life of Miles Naismith Vorkosigan as - well, inspiration. The Uchiha!kids are probably raised on Lord of the Rings, switch over to Discworld, and then to the Vorkosigan!verse... Or, if you want to be hardcore, Game of Thrones. The latter series are probably *excellent* introductions to politics. Although they would lead to some very *strange* Uchiha traditions/mannerisms...

I got up until the books where Miles’ clone featured heavily - I’ve always meant to go back and start reading them again. Yoko absolutely takes inspiration from Miles - keep talking, never let them see you sweat, and to hell with the rules and regulations.

I’ve got this image in my head, by the way, of itty-bitty Yoko sitting with a transcriber in Iwa T&I unit, talking about all the stories they know and don’t want to forget. (Which is how several Florence and the Machine songs made it into the public lexicon.)

I’m suddenly picturing a GoT-ified version of the Sage of Six Paths story. It’ll be an unholy abomination, and within a century be the most commonly known version in all the shinobi lands.

Mainly I just seem to be venting all my fan impulses into your mailbox (they’re so fun to consider!) I hope you don’t mind.

Not at all! It is the best thing to have someone that enthused about something I’m working on. It’s better than chocolate.
