I have seen a lot of hate on shipping tags recently. The Hannibal Fandom is lovely, the only one I’ve ever wanted to be a part of. So I decided that I’d write down what I thought.

Some are more intricate, specific to the hannibal fandom and some are just basic things.

Supporting the shippers, the non-shippers, supporting Fannibals.

“Rin-san, it’s okay, I can handle this”

“ … " 

"Rin-san, you already have the things, you dont have to-”

“My hand is empty, so shut up.”

Sounds so much better in my head, honestly… 

Day 1- Flustered. Sorry I was late TAT

Sephiroth's Parentage and FFVII Genetics:

So before I get started with my rant I want to tell you all that canonically Hojo is Sephiroth’s father and this rant is to prove that Professor Hojo did father the General. 

Two people have a baby. The baby doesn’t have to look like the parents. The parents of the child have inherited genes from their parents. Genes also can be recessive and dominate. The way that a child looks is influenced by their genes and if they are dominate or recessive.

Sephiroth has a very similar face shape to his mother. However, his features are more manly. Which could be from his grandfather on Lucrecia’s side. They share the same features. Hojo has a strange face. His nose doesn’t sit quiet right and his lips are a little too large. However, it makes him look human because not all humans are perfect. You can look at Hojo and Sephiroth and see that they share some features like a harsher jawline, the lip shapes, and arguably part of the nose as well. You’d need to look at the the family background to really see how genetics work in a family. However, sadly we never met any family on Lucrecia’s or Hojo’s side.

However, Sephiroth may have gotten most of his features from his grandparents. Though Sephiroth looks more like his mother. However, may I stress that all embryos start out as female and harbor more of the mother’s genes when you have a boy due to the Y chromosome not carrying that many genes. 

Jenova had a big influence on how Sephiroth looks. His hair color, eye shape, eye color, and height were all influenced by Jenova. Sephiroth was injected in uretero. The Jenova cells were able to become a part of Sephiroth, they grew with the baby. Sephiroth took on many of Jenova’s features because of this. However, Sephiroth’s height and the way that he might have grown could be because of Jenova, Growth Factor Hormones, Mako, and a cocktail of other chemicals. Sephiroth’s disposition and attitude was because of the abuse that he suffered in the science department. Sephiroth was mentally abused. His attitude was learned, he didn’t inherit it from Vincent Valentine. 

May I also add that Jenova was only a threat when she was inside a body. She had to have a host. If she was left in the crater she would have remained dormant. She needed a body to become malignant. 

Unlike Sephiroth, Genesis and Angeal were injected before they were in a living body or were injected while a small child. They were injected differently than Sephiroth, the Jenova most likely never integrated correctly causing the degradation. It was most likely because they were injected incorrectly. The only way to be injected correctly with Jenova would be in uretero. Yes they had her features, like the wings, but she was more likely a tumor and not completely intergraded or a part of them. She was poisonous to them and they began to degrade! You could argue that she was almost like cancer. Genesis degraded worse than anyone else due to the way that he was injected. Genesis was injected in a test-tube. He had no body, he was simply cells when he was injected. Angeal I suppose was able to integrate the cells better because his body was able to deal with the cells, and Sephiroth grew with the cells.  

The Lifestream emerged to push the Meteor back. Because some parts of the Lifestream had been infected with Jenova cells the people who came in contact with this tainted Lifestream contracted Geostigma. The disease is not contagious, but is believed to be so. Rufus must have come in contact with the infected Lifestream. It took a while for it too recede, but eventually it did. For him to become Geostigmatic he would have had to touch the lifestream that was infected with Jenova cells. This goes along with my cancer theory of Jenova reacting poorly in a body. Jenova was malignant. There is a lot of talk on how people contracted stigma and how it affected people. Now that I’ve done a bit of research I can say that NO ONE was immune, however people in the slums were more susceptible to it. It was a disease and how it affected them based on their immune system.   

tl;dr?

Sephiroth is Hojo’s kid.

If you’d be ever tempted to send anon hate well consider this: 

1. to everyone you’ll appear as the one who is actually acting blatantly WRONG (because you kinda are) 

2. you’re insulting another human being with their own emotions, opinions and ideas 

 3. if you think that user is doing something wrong or you don’t like the way they’re acting well TALK to them as a civil person I’m sure they will listen (if they don’t well it’s none of your business anyway you don’t rule the fucking world) 

 4. for god’s sake just DON’T send hate to people who are clearly trying to express their creativity it’s impolite and quite disrespectful because unlike you they are TRYING (maybe not always succeding but who cares? If you don’t like their stuff just don’t reblog it! Why on earth should you make them feel bad and ashamed on what they put so much effort in creating?) 

 5. don’t go claiming you can do/think/act better because seriously the latest news is that the world just doesn’t fucking revolve around you so grow up 

6. talking civilly should be always your first and best option 

7. treat people like you want to be treated (I know it’s an old story and assholes still exists but this is not an excuse to act like you were raised in the effing jungle) 

8. JUST DON’T DO IT OKAY IT’S FUCKING RUDE SO THINK TWICE BEFORE PRESSING THAT BUTTON

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW YOU GO FROM A FLAWLESSLY ADAPTED FIRST SEASON TO THE FUCKING MESS GAME OF THRONES IS NOW. SERIOUSLY! THE BOOKS HAVE PLENTY OF STORYLINES AND SUBPLOTS TO EXPLORE BUT BUT NOOOO, LET’S ADD STUPID OCS AND FANFIC-ESQUE PLOTS ALL THE WHILE IGNORING IMPORTANT FUCKING CHARACTERS AND MOMENTS IN FAVOUR OF THE “FAN-FAVS”. HOW HARD IS IT TO THROW IN A MENTION OF WILLAS? OR SHOW BRIEF MOMENTS OF ARYA’S WARGING?! LIKE HOLY SHIT!

APPARENTLY IT’S PRETTY FUCKING HARD

THE BIGGEST SLAP IN THE FACE IS LADY STONEHEART, WHO IS METAL AS FUCK I MIGHT ADD. BADASS ZOMBIE LADIES ARE AWESOME AND ZOMBIES ARE ALL THE RAGE THESE DAYS. WHAT THE FUCK D&D? YOU ARE A DISASTER

People who like the Hunger Games are SICK because they love a book about children killing children!
—  No. No. No.  The Hunger Games is about more than just children killing children.  If it were about children killing children, it would’ve been told from a Capitol person’s point of view.  It is about Katniss Everdeen, a young adult just like us.  It is about Katniss fighting herself.  It is about a dystopian society, in a futuristic country.  It is about overcoming a corrupt government.  It is about Katniss trying to survive in a fight to the death.  It is about a girl from the very bottom that rebels against a corrupt government to save lives.  It is about how anyone can make a change.  The children killing children is nothing compared to everything else in the book, and it is certainly not the reason we’re in love with the series.

I feel I should say something of philosophy. Philosophy itself, philosophical matters, and the study of it by people who genuinely have an interest in it, isn’t the issue. No, what I object to (and this is just my opinion) is this perception that, in order to appear a well-read and all-round intelligent person, one simply must get a stack of books by Nietzsche and Wittgenstein, &c., and read them ad nauseam (or pretend to do so). It’s the perception that if you haven’t read, say, Also Sprach Zarathustra, because you simply find the thought of doing so a bit dull, then you’re somehow not a complete ‘intellectual’. Why, as if philosophy is the zenith of all human writing and thought! I think there’s been this kind of fetishising of philosophy as a foolproof way of appearing clever - people who might not be genuinely interested in it still like to look as if they are, because it somehow looks cool, even fashionable. ('The philosophy-book as fashion accessory’, which is a discussion in itself.) It’s all very well to reel off a few pessimistic Nietzschean quotes when you’ve had a bad day - some existentialist spiel about lunatic asylums, society and the death of God - but if you’re just doing it to make yourself look intelligent or like a tortured soul, then you’re just being *insert synonym for 'pretentious’ here*. In reality it ends up being a kind of half-arsed pseudo-philosophy, the sort of thing cobbled together by hipsters and false intellectuals. I don’t have much of an interest in philosophy, so I wouldn’t then proceed to pretend that I do. I personally would never sit down and read, say, essays by Rousseau or Kant, because I just find it all rather heavy and laborious, like wading through treacle - give me a few Gothic tales, some Romantic poetry and the nonsense of Carroll instead! Does that make me a dull simpleton, then? Perhaps it does, perhaps it doesn’t. But I shan’t stand for the implication that I’m not intelligent just because I don’t supposedly worship Nietzsche. This wonderful spoof illustrates what I think of philosophy in general.

I seriously can’t stand tumblr users who are always rude or acting blatantly superior towards their followers. I mean, pal, they’re kinda the reason you’re famous or something. Everyone can have a bad day but between a bad day and being an asshole there’s an ocean. None says you have to live for them but at least trying to be gentle that’d be great

Concept Keepers. 

Originally, Lantern was a lot more modern, had less of an accent and no freckles. Also, Boru was different. Lantern started out as a neutral party with a thing for Tooth and building stuff than an actual Guardian, but after I brushed up on Jack O'Lantern’s mythology I decided it didn’t flow very well. And he was more of a womanizer/less of a tragic hero-turned-asshole. 

Autumn came into a being a while later, when I figured he needed a ying to all that yang. She was originally pretty emo, being all about death and stuff (as fall is,) but the dynamic was just not working at all. XP This was before the idea of her being his apprentice, so she didn’t really have a uniform like she does now. I do kinda miss the goggles, but… they seemed gimmicky. 

WTF - a rant by Striker-Vel

I’m really disappointed and a bit confused about some of the newbie behavior I’m seeing, and here’s why (and yes, I realize there’s an essence of projection here, but hear me out): I waited weeks, if not months (the actual amount of time escapes me - I didn’t pay attention, I just wanted in, lol), to get into FR. I was excited as all damn hell when I heard they were going to open up registration. I skipped class on that day because I knew I would be entranced. And let me tell you, I was. I was so goddamn happy just to finally be Astharoshe on FR (Astha is my old username), and I was so goddamn happy to have my first two dragons. I was just so goddamn happy overall. I’m actually PRETTY sure I didn’t get any dragons or anything - I got some food and dolls, but no dergs. And I was completely fuckin’ happy - because I was on Flight Rising. I worked my way up from the bottom of it all, and I fuckin’ enjoyed it.

Now we have a new generation of newbies who seem to be entitled little crappers who whine about how they can’t get certain items or no one gave them the special dragon they wanted. So many older users are out there giving GENEROUSLY (including myself - luckily all of my newbies have been delightful to interact with), and all they get in return is bitching. Obviously this doesn’t apply to all newbies - perhaps not even half - but the entitled ones stick out like a sore thumb. Grow up, folks - you’ve waited this long to get in, and now here you are, being showered in gifts - wtf is your bitch?

Since I know perfectly you won’t answer my ask.
Dear gamergirlprincesssenior I see now most of “your” stuff is stolen. Stealing is not even close to be the right way to be on this site. If you like what people do here please deleate those posts (since you stole from me as well and from other friends of mine such as strategichomelanddivision and miyku) and work hard to make YOUR OWN stuff. There’s a button called reblog for a reason. Please don’t be a douche, let editors know you appreciate them by reblogging their stuff (or sourcing them at least) and not stealing compulsively. Have a nice day.
For my followers: please do not reblog stolen stuff! We work to make our watermarks more visible as possible but sometimes that’s just not enough apparently. Help us with correcting this kind of behaviour!

I honestly think it's  ridiculous that people are now afraid to post their opinions on tumblr. People don’t post their opinions because people always tell them they’re wrong. I have experienced this. When someone posts an opinion, you respect it, you don’t tell them they’re ‘wrong’ or they’re 'stupid’, because that’s a horrible thing to do. Whether you agree or disagree with someone’s opinion, you respect it, you do not proceed to send that person hate mail. I have never told someone that they’re wrong, or that their opinion doesn’t matter, because it does. I believe that opinions are a fundamental part of society. So please, if someone tells you your opinion is wrong, don’t listen to them. And if you’re going to tell someone their opinion is wrong and send them hateful messages, stop and think about it. We’re all entitled to our own opinions, that’s where I’ll leave it….

Ok, I've just been called NAZI for being CATALAN. Oh the joy.

So, apparently for some people being catalan means that you are a nazi because poor spaniards we want to impose our language and culture. We are the devil incarnated oh my!

First of all, WHAT THE FUCK. I am a proud catalan and I am not afraid to say it. I love my language, I love my culture, I love our beautiful country, its amazing food and the flora & fauna.

What angers me so much is all the hatred towards us for just being what we always have been: CATALANS. We had our own country before we were invaded by them, we had our own laws, everything! We were doing fine on our own! And now they expect us to feel like a proud spanish citizen when they insult you, hate you, try to stop you from talking in you own mother tongue? (yes I am looking at you Mr.Wert, do not touch our educational system here thank you very much.) 

How do they expect me to feel spanish when I feel and see so much hatred towards us? How?!

why do people keep casting Black Widow as ‘the victim’ in those 30 Seconds to Mars photosets. 

i’m sorry were we watching the same movie or. if anything Hawkeye should be the damn 'victim’ considering he spent nearly the whole film under hypnosis. or maybe Loki considering fandom is so big on making him out to be horrifically misunderstood, rather than the villain. if anything BW should be the leader, considering she is the one who does most of the fucking leg work in the Avengers. i’m pretty sure Tony couldn’t make his heroic sacrifice if she hadn’t held open the portal for him. let’s not forget she also managed to trick Loki, the god who is supposed to be the master of manipulation, into giving up his plans, and literally PUNCHED clint back into humanity. 

so yeah i pretty much refuse to reblog any of those avengers photosets until fandom get’s it’s head out it’s ass. 

oops another rant

I ALSO HATE

those stupid posts that are like
“crave this? eat *insert more ‘healthy’/lower calorie thing* instead!”

it’s like NO

eat what you are fucking craving

like if you want some damn chocolate

EAT THE FUCKING CHOCOLATE

because if you don’t, 9 times out of 10
 you will eat some almonds, an apple, a bowl of cereal, an entire cow, a 4 person family AND THE WHOLE FUCKING HOUSE ROOF AND ALL and then finally you will eat the chocolate, and it will be 5 bars instead of the 2 pieces you wanted orginally

so just eat the damn chocolate

The one thing I hate to hear the most is “One Direction are the new Beatles.” It’s so NOT true. I have nothing against One Direction - their music is just not my taste, but I can easily say that they are not the “new Beatles”. 

The Beatles were innovative, fresh, and something completely new. Their music basically made the 60s. Everything they did was great - everyone wanted to look like them. The Ed Sullivan show changed everything. Sgt Peppers changed everything

Because of The Beatles, One Direction is here. They paved the way for a whole range of musicians. Basically every musician is influenced by the Beatles.

RANT ALERT:
So I was telling my friend how I was crying when stereo kicks went out last night and all she said was “what was the point in all 8 of them?” What was the point in all 8 of them?! Well here’s the point! They’re all amazingly talented but you wouldn’t know as you don’t think there should be 8. Also, they’re Stereo Kicks! They’re not 1D, 5SOS, Union J, The Vamps or any other boyband out there! They’re unique! And yes the idea of having 8 of them is daunting and unbelievable but it works cause it’s so unique that only these 8 boys can pull it off. Also, she then went onto say “and what was it with the little one crying?” Are you kidding me?! He’s 14, the same age as us and he’s trying to achieve his dream of being a singer, which I can relate to very well! How would you like it to be voted off a talent contest and have your dreams ruined?! Oh I forgot you may not have a dream. These boys are like brothers to each other so charlie was obviously not wanting to leave his brothers!

Anyway I’ve been listening and supporting these boys long before they became a band and long before the X factor and for someone to have the cheek to say that to my face! I was close to getting in a huge argument but I had to keep my calm for the sake of humanity. These boys have saved my life not just once but many of times and I still remember the first days I found their covers on YouTube and sound cloud and the days I fell in love with each member!
