Relationship development between the Olivias

Can y’all just take a look at these majestic Trill soul mate love tags from reflectingiridescent and note how her blog is also titled “thoughts traced in glitter” and just etch in a bedazzled stone tablet somewhere this historic moment when I have probably found a new best blog friend.

8 questions

I was tagged by the lovely shipperpenguin88, thank you <3

1. Why did you choose your URL?
I was two months into seeing Stargate SG-1 for the first time when I started this blog. Samantha Carter had already then changed my life for the better, it made sense to let you all know :) In the beginning my blog was mostly about her and the rest of the SGC, now it’s a complete mess.

2. What is your middle name?
I don’t have a middle name but it’s okay.

3. If you could own a fairytale/fictional pet what would it be?
A talking cat.

4. Favourite color?
Black for clothing but apart from that the colors of autumn.

5. Favourite song?
The most played song in my iTunes is La mer recommencée by Vangelis. The song I hear on repeat at the moment is Good Bye Happy Farm by Plastilina Mosh.

6. What are your top 3 fandoms?
Stargate SG-1, Sanctuary and Castle.

7. Why do you enjoy Tumblr?
I get to know and talk to new people, this is where I discovered Castle and Battlestar Galactica, I enjoy the art, the gifs, the sad/funny/inspirational stories and sometimes I get the news here before it reaches the Danish news stations.

8. Tag 8 blogs

I was tagged by reflectingiridescent (thanks boo) so here we goooooo

1. Why did you choose your url?

Ok, so I originally had it as noirpopteenjudas, which came about through that aesthetic generator that was going around a while ago. I actually put my friend’s name in and that popped up, and I liked it so much I stole it oops. But then I changed my icon to that neon monstrosity, and I changed it to neonjudas cause I liked it better and it fit more. Honestly, I just thought it was cool and didn’t think beyond that. But I guess if I had to assign a special meaning to it now, it’s an interesting mix of modern and ancient, and especially of light and dark. Judas figures in pop culture always intrigue me because of their darkness and shadiness and their internal struggle with their inevitable betrayal, and neon is bright and gaudy and attention-grabbing. It’s just a really interesting juxtaposition, really. So now that I’m done being an insufferable art student…

2. What is your middle name?

Alexander. I like it a lot, and I’ve thought about incorporating it into my stage name in the future, but I don’t think I will tbh.

3. If you could own a fairytale/fictional pet, what would it be?

I was gonna go with a unicorn, but I think having a phoenix would be badass. 

4. Favorite color?

Blue. Always has been, always will be.

5. Favorite song?

"Samson" by Regina Spektor. I usually say I don’t have one, but I think this is pretty much it. From the music to the lyrics to the meaning, everything lines up so perfectly, it’s beautiful.

6. What are your top 3 fandoms?

I’m not really in any fandoms. How to Get Away With Murder is really the only one at the moment.

7. Why do you enjoy tumblr?

I’m always on top of The Freshest Memes.

8. Tag all 9 of your tumblr crushes.

reflectingiridescent replied to your post: eruphadriel asked:Hi there. I was…

I’m just going to chime in here and say that I’m both Filipino and Chinese, and each race has the full range of skin tones. Not all East Asian people are fair.

Filipinos are Southeast Asian. Nearer to the equator and thus darker. That being said, not all Southeast Asians have darker skin. I’m a SEAsian by virtue of my nationality, but I’m of Chinese (East Asian) descent, so I typically have fair skin which grows darker depending on sun exposure.

East Asians are in fact born with fairer skin, but a lot of them (especially those who work outdoors) gradually take on a browner, more weathered look after some time. Obviously not all East Asians are fair throughout their entire lives, but most of it has to do with external conditions.

My sun-exposed brown skin is still very much different from the brown of an orang Melayu or a Cambodian.

Escalator, muffin, acrylic paint

Escalator: Once when my brother was about four years old, he tripped and fell at the bottom of the up escalator in a department store. It seemed like he fell forever, but it was probably only a few seconds. My mom grabbed him pretty quick and he was okay other than a couple of scrapes. My mom expected him to be afraid of going on the escalator after that, but she said he never even blinked the next time we came to one, he just stepped on.

Muffin: I couldn’t think of an answer in words, so you get a picture of the pumpkin muffins I made for Halloween breakfast in 2009:

Acrylic paint: Let’s stick with the photo theme, shall we? Here’s a painting Annalie did entirely on her own when she was 6.5 years old:

ask meme: put three things in my askbox that look like they could be part of an ask meme, but in truth are just a string of barely-related words/letters. i will answer them somehow.

YOU TWO ARE MY NEW FAVOURITES.

The main thing for me, with Jack and Sam, is they’re not equals. For the entire length of time they’ve known each other, and we’ve known them, Jack has been Sam’s superior officer. She calls him sir and is ordered about by him and doesn’t question his instructions unless he’s going to get all of them, or the rest of the galaxy, killed. (Incidentally he is often quite disrespectful of her and her work, at least in the early seasons.) They’ve never been equals, and that’s kind of important in a relationship. To me, their personalities don’t seem to match up at all. It’s just sexual tension, with a touch of friendship confusing matters, and a few weeks’ dating or a couple of nights’ sex would get them straightened out, I think. Not to mention that they aren’t particularly close friends - beyond saving each other’s lives a half dozen times a week, there isn’t much connection between them. I would love them as close friends, and I think there’s definitely the potential there! If that had been actually used I might understand it more, but with the way things were written there’s nothing of substance to their story and relationship; I just cannot comprehend the two of them in a functional long-term relationship.

(I’m a huge Sam/Daniel shipper, actually, and I am open to shipping Sam with just about anyone, SG-1 or Atlantis - Jack is the only exception. I mean, apart from Hammond, that is.)
