If you really want to help indigenous people, now is your time.
Ngati Paoa and other protestors have been occupying Putiki Bay after resource consent was given to develop it without consent from the local iwi. Today, they are blocked by police as developers being to destroy Little Blue Penguin habitat, a species on the decline with climate change and habitat destruction.
Public outrage and eyes on Putiki may be the only thing that can save Putiki now after every route has failed. Spread information about Putiki every where you can - Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, your local group chat, whatever. Please please please help save Putiki Bay, Aotearoa NZ!

In the season they kick off the SoC plot, whether its season two or a future one, they need to start it off with Joost and Anya.

as of today july 11, 2021 the covid situation in south korea is worse than it ever has been and it's entirely the US government's fault. they won't control their military personnel who r exempt from south korean law and they won't let south korea keep restricting travel from the US when americans are the ones going clubbing and going to bars and not wearing masks in big groups on the street. koreans aren't allowed to gather in groups larger than 3 after 6pm and we're on level 4 social distancing for the first time and there's americans flooding seoul for their "post pandemic" vacation. the US wrecked moon jaein's plans to vaccinate everyone by march 2021 and cut off our vaccination supply and set south korea back to square 1 and we're competing for vaccine supplies now so no one under the age of 31 or something is vaccinated there's never been this many people with positive tests and outbreaks happening in big shopping malls the government was doing so well and as soon as the US decides the pandemic is over people are dying again

Loads of people on my dash: LET THEM HAVE SEX SEASON 2
Me, an Asexual Who Saw Myself in a Show for the First Time: Please let us keep our ace rep.  Please let aro people continue to see themselves as well.  Please let them be genderqueer and not “make an effort.”  Please stand up to people who think queer representation only means two men with penises having sex.

so i actually think what's making me the maddest about the reaction to the season 2 announcement is ... the number of people who are treating season two as if the only point of good omens is to confirm that crowley and aziraphale are in some kind of concrete gay/queer love.
the story is about so much more. it's about the love of parents for children, the love of friends for one another, found family, how expectations can change you and how to find yourself within it, about love winning over everything; it's about freeing yourself from abusive mindsets and being honest with those you love; it's about saving the world by saving and being your best self; it's a love story about all kinds of love, yeah, but there's so much else to take from it. it's about not giving up. it's about how people can surprise you. it's about being there for others. it's about a happy ending
and the number of takes that are so focused on "proving" that crowley and aziraphale have some specific kind of relationship (as if they aren't each other's ENTIRE WORLD already?) because that's the only important message Good Omens has for the world?
ehhhhh i dunno but that's not why i'm here

I wish I could just be as excited about Good Omens series 2 as everyone else seems to be, but I just can't stop feeling apprehensive about it because I am aroace and I fucking remember how uncomfortable it was to be aspec and in this fandom when series 1 came out.
Like, I can tell you right now, when that series comes out one of two (2) things is going to happen.
Possibly Aziraphale and Crowley's relationship will be explicitly clarified as romantic and/or sexual. Don't get me wrong, if this happens I will be very happy for mlm (and gay and mspec people in general) for getting representation that they are so often denied, but it will also mean losing what has been a very important source of queerplatonic representation for me personally, so I will likely have mixed feelings about it.
Alternatively, they may choose to keep it ambiguous (or even make them explicitly aroace)— in which case all the aphobic Good Omens fans who had only just quietened down will come squirming back out of the woodwork and start making things uncomfortable for aspec fans again.
I've already seen other aspec fans worrying about Option 2— and considering that the new series was only formally announced today, and I have already seen my first aphobic post that referenced it specifically just while I was scrolling through a related tag— it's not a stupid thing to worry about.
Get ready to be supportive of aspec fans in the run-up to this new series and after it comes out, because there's every chance that we're in for a pretty rough time.

So we have very understandable excitement for characters like Wylan and Nikolai to appear in SaB s2 if in happens but y'know who I'm also super excited to see (from the Six of Crows books)?
Per Haskell. He didn't appear in season 1 unfortunately and he's important to Kaz's development in the future especially when they begin exploring the plot of CK. On top of that, Per Haskells involvement with Inej's indenture is important for Kanej as it avoids toxic themes that currently surround SaB!Kanej.
Jan Van Eck. He's a pathetic rich guy but he's one of my all time favourite YA villains. Idk why but I really enjoy how Leigh Bardugo wrote him. His maliciousness and selfishness really fascinates me and I would love to see how the actor they get to play him (providing s2 happens) portrays that about him. And his relationship with Alys - despite it being very creepy and wrong, the way they communicated in the Bridge Exchange scene makes me laugh so hard.
Kuwei Yul-Bo. Considering how important Kuwei is to the Crows part, it'd be so cool to see him. He lied about how much he understood Kerch to avoid communication with the Crows, he blew up part of the the Ice Court (I think the old Treasury on the white island?) and the fact that he never actually got a chance to be a kid, it seems, like other kids because 1. Hes a shu grisha (and if you've read the books, you know what its like for Grisha in Shu Han) and 2. His father invented Jurda Parem, and until the crows, no one he came across truly seemed to value him as a person. He was a tool for world domination, people wanted to use him for his intelligence on Jurda Parem for their own personal gain, but not the crows. They actually protected him from the these people in the end. Kuwei's storyline is so so so interesting and I can't wait for it to be explored. Also I need to see that Kiss Scene™ when they go into the CK plot.
Other Dregs Members Like Anika, Keeg, Pim and Specht. Currently we only know the Crows and Rotty but in the future, I would love to see the appearances of these guys too and how they also impact Kaz's arc and both SoC and CK
Joost, Anya & Retvenko. These three kicked off the SoC books (Retvenko more in CK) and I'd really love to see their limited time on the screen.
For later seasons probably:
Colm Fahey. I absolutely cannot wait to see him in series. I can't wait to see how his actor interacts with Kit and how their relationship will be portrayed. I can't wait for that scene in the Geldrenner Hotel where Jesper tells him that in fact Colm did raise him to be a liar, I can't wait to see the university bit where Wylan and Jesper go to meet him and they get attacked, or when he has that meeting with Van Eck and Karl Dryden - "I feel distinctly bullied" - and just. Yeah.
Marya Hendriks. I already know that part, if/when they adapt chapter 14 of Crooked Kingdom into Shadow and Bone, will destroy me. It'd be so interesting and heartbreaking to see that scene played out with Kit and whoever ends up playing Wylan and I honestly can't wait.
Alys Van Eck. Alys' intro will make me laugh so much I'm not even kidding. I absolutely love that singing obsessed lady. I can't wait to see the scene where she's on Black Veil and sHE. DOESNT. STOP. SINGING. I can't wait to see how Calahan, Danielle, Freddy, Amita, Kit and whoever ends up as Wylan and Kuwei would tackle it to be honest.
I'm so excited for the future of SaB

I had an idea for a post credit scene for Shadow and Bone episode 8:
The scene opens on a finely decorated office: paintings of honourable men with hardened blue eyes, and others of a Zemeni countryside, or waterfalls from the Wandering Isles cover the red-gold walls. However, one area lays bare, the ghost of a DeKappel oil painting lingering in its place.
A man in a black suit is sat in a grand chair that resembles a throne because hes so extra with his back to the camera, writing on a piece of parchment. Across from him sits a boy with ruddy gold curls, gnawing at his thumb anxiously as if awaiting terrible news.
The man straightens up, rests his pen on the desk before him and focusses on the boy. He speaks with authority. "I have secured you a position at the music school in Belendt."
The scene fades out as the camera zooms in on the red laurel hovering over the painting behind the boy.
Edit: changed a few things

Might I add, Jan Van Eck mention in SoC that he tried "specialists, tonics, beatings, hypnotism" to "cure" his dyslexia. Implying that not only was Wylan emotionally abused, lied to, manipulated, gaslit and ALMOST MURDERED by his father/his fathers men but was also physically abused and forced to take/go through x y z because he cannot read.
You could also argue that Wylan was infantilized in that household too due to his dyslexia - made to believe that he was incapable of doing things alone from booking a boat trip to leaving home alone - which would of course add to the worthlessness OP mentions Wylan feels. To me, this exchange between Van Eck and Wylan perpetuates the idea:
"'[...] I've also arranged for chaperones to travel with you on the browboat'
Wylan's cheeks had flooded red with humiliation. 'I can get to Belendt'
'You've never traveled outside of Ketterdam on your own, and this is not the time to start [...]. They'll escort you there and ensure that you're successfully situated. Understood?'
Wylan understood. He was unfit even to board a boat out of the city by himself."
It's obvious Wylan suffered so much as a result of his father's treatment of him due to something he couldn't even control, and his trauma is just as important as any others.
I wholeheartedly agree with OP when they said his trauma must be respected - just like how we respect the rest of the crows.
I don't know how much sense this makes but I hope I got my addition to this point across
lets talk about wylan van eck.
SIX OF CROWS DUOLOGY SPOILERS
wylan van eck is a character in leigh bardugos’ six of crows books. he is a smart explosives expert who was sent away from home for his inability to read. his father was a wealth merchant who wanted to pass his power and job along to wylan when he got older, the fact that he couldn’t read caused that to be “impossible” in the eyes of jan van eck. 
this converstaion isn’t about who wylan is as a character it is more about the trauma he suffered and the way the fandom pushes that trauma away from his character. wylans’ trauma stemmed from the fact that he couldn’t read. because he wasn’t able to read his father constatly degraded him and forced him to try harder with more and more tutors even if he wasn’t able to. by the end jan van eck got remarried and was going to have another heir, which led him to “send wylan to music school” or have two men try to kill him. this causes major trauma and this feeling that wylan would not be seen as smart unless he gets this ability to read. his dyslexia and the hatred his father had for it caused him this deep emotional trauma. 
wylans trauma is not the only one we see in the book. we see kaz face his trauma after his brother jordie dies. we talk about inej and her trauma from the menagerie. we talk about jespers gambling addiction, matthias and his slight religious trauma, and nina feeling out of place from the other grisha in ravka. but wylans is often overlooked or made into a joke. constatly on tik tok people are making jokes about wylan being unable to read or his dyslexia which is ableism and ignoring the entire reason that he is apart of the dreggs. we must learn to respect his trauma the same way we respect kaz and inej and their own trauma.

I don't know whether this has ever been discussed but I have a headcanon that Wylan officially changes his surname to Hendriks after the events of CK
