African American flappers and Jazz Age women
HOLY SHIT I HAVE NEVER SEEN BLACK FLAPPERS BEFORE!
There were many fabulous African American flappers. No wonder - it was African American musicians who put the Jazz in “The Jazz Age”! The Charleston dance iteself, which so epitomizes the era, made its debut in the all-Black musical “Runnin’ Wild”, and no one danced that flapper number better than Josephine Baker…save possibly for fellow Black artist Florence Mills, who claimed credit for inventing it (she said she debuted it in her “Plantation Revue” in the early 20s, developing it from a dance popular among slaves). The Charleston song was written by Black composer James P Johnson. Without women and girls like those above, the 1920s would never have roared.

Photographer Michel Denis-Huot, who captured these amazing pictures in Kenya , said he was astounded by what he saw:
“These three brothers (cheetahs) have been living together since they left their mother at about 18 months old,’ he said.
‘On the morning we saw them, they seemed not to be hungry, walking quickly but stopping sometimes to play together.
‘At one point, they met a group of impala who ran away. But one youngster was not quick enough and the brothers caught it easily’.”
Then these scenes followed
and then they just walked away without hurting him.
DAMN, NATURE! YOU CONSIDERATE!

a bunch of twitter one piece sketches from tonight!! I’m finally reading it!!
Something I hate about One Piece… well I guess there’s the easy, obvious answer that really stopped me keeping up with it, the pacing. Not the indavidual story arc pacing (that’s almost always great), but the larger narrative is fucking glacial. It took twelve years to get half way through the Grand Line for Pete’s sake. Yeah it’s a blast in the mean time but the lack of larger progress really starts to wear down after a while.
And that bleeds into the characters to, which is a goddamn travesty. They all have truly wonderful personalities and motivations, but some of those motivations -coughSANJIcough- aren’t present enough to be meaningful a lot of the time so they end up being jokes or simplified because there’s just too much shit going on to really give them their dues. Plus while the author is truly boundlessly creative and it’s clear Oda puts a lot of goddamn work into his art and world building… at some point I just lost interest. I still adore One Piece, it will always have a shrine in my heart as my first real no-holds-barred fandom, but I’m gonna hold off on reading it again until I know there’s an END. I don’t care if it takes another 12 years to get there.

Who else is excited for Season 2? I know, I am!
It would be totally awesome if a scenario like this happened in the show, but alas, it seems unlikely. Hey, we can dream, right?
The only AU I can take credit for is the Wonderland AU. The rest are created by various.
