how to spot the signs

**check moon, venus, and rising sign too though bc y’know

aries // it’s probably fairly easy to spot that aries. they’re the one that screams aggressively when their pottery project crumbles in their hands. the one that always wants to try ziplining or bungee jumping or skydiving. 

in private - aries in private are one of those signs that are very similar to the way they are in general or in public. they don’t feel the need to have to cover up their emotions or their thoughts. if you’re with an aries in private, you will probably notice that they’re more chill than you thought they were, though. and not as angry as they seem. 

flirting - the ones that subtly flirt but still seem to get their message across. flirts a lot too, though. anytime they can get close to their crush, they’re flirting.  

features - they probably have like one really striking feature. like the most beautiful hair you’ve ever seen or really great natural eyebrows. 

taurus // a taurus may be a little harder to spot. they probably have a plant/nature aesthetic. they’re the ones who can be outgoing and shy at the same time. they’re quite calm and collected. thinks through their decisions before making them. suggests hiking and camping a lot. 

in private - taurus in private are probably sweeter than they are in public, especially if you’re close to them. many of them may also be a little more emotional than you’d think. sometimes they’ll talk for hours, sometimes they’ll barely say a single word. 

flirting - you probably won’t even notice a taurus flirting. they’re quite subtle about it, because it makes them feel awkward. this doesn’t mean they’re bad at flirting though, usually they’re able to become good friends with their crush, and things may go from there. 

features - soft features that all fit together really nicely. soft, rounded nose. cute eyes. not too strongly defined eyebrows. 

gemini // ah, the gemini. it’s probably one of the popular girls in your class, or the guy who’s the class clown. they’re fun, energetic, and definitely quite talkative. they have a lot of nice things to say about people. 

in private - at first, gemini seems just like they are in public. talkative, got a lot of stories up their sleeve, smiles a bunch. but pay attention to their words. they’re different. in private, they’re more comfortable with sharing a lot of gossip. they’re probably also a lot smarter than you thought they were. may react differently to the same thing than if they were in public. 

flirting - a gemini is a pretty solid flirter. they’re good at never making their crush bored. they rarely tell the same story twice, even if in reality it’s the same story with a few tweaks here and there. 

features - a gemini is just cute, man. beautiful smile. bright and alert eyes. 

cancer // a cancer may be a little bit hard to spot. they’re either super shy and reserved, or pretty talkative and outgoing, but not much of an in-between. probably the ones that get a little offended by a joke, and can take criticism pretty personally and to the heart. 

in private - a cancer is one of those people you want to know privately. like someone you want to spend one-on-one time with. they’re cuddly, cute, sweet, ad comforting. if you’re close, you’ll probably be able to notice the transition from being awkward in public to smooth af in private. 

flirting - a cancer may not be the best flirter of all time. but, they may get their way. they probably clam up and sweat when being close to their crush. but hey, they’re cute and lovable so maybe it won’t be hard for their crush to notice them.

features - a cancer has soft features. they look really kind. the type of person that if you’re in a crowd and you have to ask someone for the time, you’d ask them because they seem like they won’t be too bothered by you and will be nice about it. 

leo // not hard to spot a leo. usually loud and confident, but not usually in the cocky way. they’re always with a group of people, and probably the one that’s talking. super fun and adventurous. the kind of person to bring ten bags of marshmallows to the campfire. 

in private - a leo in private may surprise you from the way they seem in public. probably one of the most different from in private to in public compared to all the other signs. they have insecurities hidden. they’re not always super happy. may get stressed out a lot. needs to know you’ll always be there for them.

flirting - leo is one of the best flirters hands down. their crush probably is already attracted to them anyways. good storytellers, pretty hilarious. can make their crush feel like them flirting is almost addictive. they’re also obvious with their flirting. 

features - a leo is beautiful. could rock the catwalk or the red carpet. they may enjoy wearing a lot of makeup (not necessarily to ‘cover up’ but more so bc they just like to) but are just as glamorous without. 

virgo // a virgo looks at the small details rather than the big picture. probably the perfectionist in the class, who has perfect handwriting and good grades. the one that makes good, smart decisions. knows what’s going on in the world. 

in private - a virgo is more willing to try new things and will say things that surprise you when you first have one-on-one time with a virgo. even though they’re fairly entertainig themselves, they’ll always beg you to entertain them or tell them some good jokes. 

flirting - a virgo is also a pretty subtle flirter, and seems like just a friend, which is okay because they may say some creepy things that would be super embarrassing if their crush knew they were flirting with them. you know like or “i love the neighborhood you live in”. don’t like leading people on.

features - a virgo likes to focus on their appearance. good fashion sense, perfect makeup, astounding hair. 

libra // a libra is probably the one you automatically feel like is kind of “fake” as a first impression. they’re probably not “fake”, they just try too hard to cover up their real emotions and show different ones instead so they don’t seem detached. pretty intelligent and a good talker. 

in private - a libra is another sign you want to know personally. you just always want to know what they have to say and their opinion on things. they can be either mature or childish depending on their mood. very peaceful. doesn’t like fighting with the ones they love. 

flirting - a libra is pretty good at flirting. they can be the touchy type, so they’re probably not as subtle. they have such a natural charm to them and are so intriguing. easy to get along with.

features - a libra probably has gorgeous eyes. you can tell they’re thinking about something important all the time. probably very light (not in color, in terms of feeling ig). 

scorpio // a scorpio is intense. they’re highly opinionated and good at arguing, and have clear emotions. they can be either loud or quiet. everyone is probably either aesthetically attracted to a scorpio, or attracted to their personality. they’re just cool. 

in private - a scorpio in private is intense. they want to know a lot about you. they also want you to know a lot about them. they’re very real and honest people. don’t say “no offense but…” to them. straightforward (but not rude) people work well with them.

flirting - a scorpio is definitely a touchy flirty, but they’re so good at flirting they can control whether their touching seems more friendly or more physical. it’s their presence that intrigues their crush more than their words. like a scorpio doesn’t have to say anything and their crush probably won’t even be bored. 

features - a scorpio is sexy, fierce, and mysteriously beautiful. they’ve got that perfect smirk, pout, smile, etc. down. 

sagittarius //  a sagittarius could be a little hard to spot. they can be fairly stubborn, though many other signs can be too. they also usually feel like they’re right, and pretend to listen to your side. pretty outgoing, a little weird but in a way that makes you crave it. 

in private - when it comes to humor- sags are underrated. they’re pretty damn funny. they’re also very opinionated. if you mean something to them though, they’ll protect you well and put your before themselves. 

flirting - a sag is neither good nor bad at flirting. sometimes they try, sometimes they don’t. they believe that if it’s meant to happen, it’ll happen. with this in mind, they probably don’t flirt too much with strangers. 

features - bold features all around. irresistible smile and eyes. strong nose. 

capricorn // a capricorn always gets their work done- even if some of them procrastinate until the last minute. they’re only talkative around the people they’re comfortable with. is into more old-fashioned things. very nice, but stubborn and opinionated. 

in private - sarcastic, witty, and enjoyable. they’re the kinds of people you take for granted but once they’re gone (they don’t like giving more than second chances), you’ll realize how much you miss and need them. good at giving direction, but not at giving advice. very realistic and often pessimistic. good friends. loyal friends.

flirting - they don’t even flirt. they probably flirt with their eyes and admire from afar. depending on their crush (the kind of person they are) the aura they have may be really intriguing and attractive, or they may not even be noticed. 

features - gorgeous hair. they’re so pretty but so underrated.

aquarius // idealistic. talks about the future and ignores the past. probably one of the smartest people you’ll talk to- not just academically but socially as well. may be a little weird but people love it. people just know them, they’re well known. they also know that they’re funny, but they don’t like taking the role of class clown. know that when receiving a compliment from them, it’s genuine and will make your day. 

in private - an aquarius in private is someone you almost feel like you need to know personally. if they let you in, consider yourself lucky- but don’t think you’ve broken down their walls. they’ve got secrets. they’re so interesting that you never get bored, even if you’re talking about yourself, the way they look at you is heart-warming. can be both dreamy and realistic.

flirting - an aquarius may or may not be a good flirter. they tend to get better with practice. however, other people may not notice them flirting. they treat their crush like a friend and signals may be a bit messed up. 

features - aquarians may have wonderful features that you miss if you don’t pay attention close enough. sweet smile and knowing eyes.

pisces // a pisces is that daydreamer. the one who speaks with “if” instead of “when”. very calm and sweet. a good person to befriend if you want someone loyal and adorable. 

in private - a pisces in private is pretty much the same as when they’re in public. they love to listen to you and offer emotional support rather than giving advice. they tend to be pretty gullible. very loving and easy to love back.

flirting - a pisces is a touchy flirter, but an awkward touchy flirter. they’ll go to touch your shoulder but quickly retract as soon as their fingertips brush. it may be obvious when they’re flirting. they tend to ramble and maybe even stutter. 

features - a pisces is just a big ol’ ball of cuteness. no specifics. just awesome. 

lost thoughts

Title: lost thoughts

Pairing: Kim Minseok/Reader

Genre: Soulmate!AU.  You hear your soul mate’s thoughts inside your head since the moment they/you are born.

Summary: The sound of his voice inside her head brings a smile to her face or a frown to her features. If only Minseok wasn’t so teasing maybe things would be a little bit easier.

If only her mind could shut up for three seconds, she would be able to study.

And she really meant those words, without caring that she liked neither this topic nor studying whatsoever, but she really needed to pass this exam, yet, the voice on her head kept singing hit songs, thinking about food and some other dirty thought that would cross their heads. Not that she had two voices inside her head, one coming from a male and the other completely hers…but it was rather something she was born with. All her life she had heard the voice of her soul mate and she’d like to think it’s beautiful –and in some way it is- but at this point, it was annoying. She had heard his voice as a kid, mostly talking about how he had lost a game with his friends and asking who she was, then when he was a teenager he would be colder…slightly lost in the feeling of going through puberty and finding new lovers, and now…the man that she recognized as Minseok was nothing more than doing anything to get her riled up.

From what he thought, she could tell that Minseok was a pretty vivid and lively person. Sometimes he thought about his friends, giving them presents or teasing them as a way of showing them his love. Other times, he simply thought about food and how grumpy he was because he was hungry. From what she knew, he was on summer break at this moment and she was taking classes in the summer, hence why she was so mad because he was doing this on purpose. Back when they were both children, they didn’t know that they could have a full conversation with their thoughts, but now that he learnt that he could talk to her and hear her just from thinking…he used it to his will.

For KuroDai Week 2017, Day 8: Mythical Creatures/Super Powers

Summary: Daichi has never met another person like him before, someone he doesn’t have to hide his abilities from. But the first day at a new school, surrounded by the same normal faces, he finally meets someone different.


This will be Daichi’s seventh time as the new kid, so it’s not like it’s something he doesn’t know how to do. It’s all just a matter of blending in, finding the patterns and fitting himself inside them, and that’s something he has years of experience with.

It gets tiring though, following this routine. Leaving when he slips up, because somehow he always does, and starting out again in a different place, with a new set of people who are all the same. The same as the ones at his last school, the same as each other. All of them cut from the same cloth, except for him.

Daichi is different. Daichi can crack the earth with his anger, he can shape the soil without lifting a hand. When he laughs, if he isn’t focusing hard enough on his control, pebbles will rise up and dance with his voice.

hey, i don't wanna seem rude or anything, but these messages about '3 white guys' doesn't make any sense, because in Ukraine 99,999998% are white (Ukrainians, Russians, Belorussian etc), so i literally don't understand why people keep fussing about it. if it's a joke than that's fine and i'm just a stupid peace of a human, don't mind me :D (btw sorry for my english it's awful)

because people of african descent and other people of color do exist in ukraine regardless of their concentration in comparison to white people. in fact, the reality that there are so few black people and poc in the country means that racism against these groups is all the more blatant and pointed. see this and this and this for some background reading. the presenters of eurovision don’t have to be a proportionate representation of the demographic breakdown of ukraine, especially not when the theme is literally “diversity.” they could’ve included a woman. and they could’ve included a person of color because people of color DO exist in eastern europe and statistics like the one that you just gave in your message (as well as common attitudes about the predominance of white people in the region) contribute to their erasure–that seems like something it’d be important to address in an event that is themed around diversity. it would’ve been a moment to raise visibility and communicate that even though the country appears so white, other people do reside there and belong in ukraine just as much as anyone else, regardless of their ethnicity or heritage or the color of their skin. 

anonymous asked:

this might be a bit of a stretch but solas(dragon age) and shepard(mass effect) + difference for the prompt? em, dont feel forced to do this one since its kinda out there!

OK, I’m determined, I’m going to write something for this. Longer than the original 5-10 sentence task and not really the shippiest of responses, but here we go. I’m gonna write Solas into Mass Effect. *cracks knuckles*


“Do not do this.” His voice trembled despite himself, the Dread Wolf’s confident facade crumbling as he watched the Inquisitor raise the artifact, its arcane light catching in her eyes as they glistened, wet with unshed tears. 

“I’m sorry, vhenan,” she whispered. “You left me no choice.”

He lifted his hand, reaching out for her, his throat tightening as he choked out a final word. “Please-”

And then, there was darkness. 

He had underestimated her. Given other circumstances, he might have been proud. Her solution had been far more elegant than the plan he’d concocted to stop the Evanuris. She didn’t need to change the very nature of the world to imprison him. Instead, she trapped him inside his own mind. A dreamless sleep - his consciousness cut off from the world, from her, from the Fade, from the spirits who had brought him so much comfort and companionship over those long years before he met her. There was only a sinking moment of helplessness, a feeling of being stripped bare and hollowed out, a second of useless struggling and then…. nothing.

An utter void.

He had no concept of how much time had passed before he heard the voice. Thin, high and reedy, bearing the quickened cadence of speech and yet Solas could not recognize the language it spoke. He opened his eyes only to squeeze them shut once more, wincing at the harsh, blinding light that surrounded him. A second voice joined the first - softer, feminine - her words sounding just as foreign but in a completely different manner from the first. Yet the two spoke in turn as if they understood one another as Solas got his bearings, forcing himself to sit upright as his head spun. His body felt weak - how long had he slept? - and it took time for his vision to adjust to the strange, artificial light in the room. It had an odd, bluish quality to it, not like firelight or sunlight and twice as bright as either. It made the walls around him seem even more strikingly void of color, surrounded by nothing but dull silver paneling. The only familiar thing he could see lay about his person - a sarcophagus of sorts, clearly decorated with care, though the once-beautiful stone carvings had worn down over the ages. 

There was only one person who would have gone to such trouble to give him an honored burial. 

He was abruptly drawn from his thoughts as a sharp pain erupted from the side of his throat, an odd mechanical hiss sounding seconds after the foreign object pierced him. Solas drew back quickly, nearly toppling out of his carved encasement as he whirled to face his attacker, summoning energy for a spell on reflex as his feet hit the floor.

The…. thing that had touched him did not seem alarmed, staring at a narrow beam of orange light as it set down the implement it had just used to strike him. The light before it shifted, changing into varying unfamiliar patterns and when it next spoke, Solas was surprised to hear it speak in Common. “Hmm. Energy readings. Unidentified. Source and purpose unknown. Increased activity in frontal lobe accompanied by electrical activity in the hands. Strange. Might be coincidental. Unclear how stasis was achieved. Unfamiliar technology. Body clearly nourished, yet source of fuel undetermined. No signs of decomposition. No muscle deterioration. Yet containment does not appear to generate any sort of protective field. No time dilation or cryotech. Just stone. Odd. Otherwise, humanoid. One heart. Nearly identical circulatory system and organ structure to the people of your planet. Will need to analyze DNA to be certain, but-”

“Slow it down, Mordin,” the female voice said again. Solas sought the source of the sound, relieved to see a more familiar form. Human, yes, but at least she was something he could identify, unlike the tall and slim figure who continued to poke at a strangely-marked panel. She was not dissimilar to Cassandra in her height and physique, clad in a slim-fitting black uniform, her hand resting warily on the device she had strapped to her hip. “Just give me the basics.”

Succumb

Arc-V AU where ¾ bracelet girls said ‘fuck it’ and joined Zarc because after all the shit they’ve been through I would have quit

Idk where this came from but the idea of the girls using the dragons is really appealing to me and like for some reason I really like ‘protags give up and fall into darkness’  trope lol.

Also I incorporated the “Yuu boys are actually their dragons” theory cause I love it.


Yuzu runs as fast as her tired legs will let her. The once beautiful ocean-sided town in the Fusion dimension is now in shambles and not a single soul besides Yuzu can be found. With the town deserted the only sounds that can be heard are Yuzu’s harsh breathing, her steps against the ruined ground, and the three metal bracelets hooked onto her belt loop that cling every time she takes a step.

She’s so tired. The remaining Lancers are nowhere to be found and each day Zarc’s reign expands further and further throughout the dimension.

Maybe I should just stop fighting. Just like….

Yuzu shakes her head.

No I can’t. I have to save them. All of them.

Don't Get Caught

E.D.

Warning: Dark and triggering themes, abuse.

Summary: Worry is all you feel when Ethan leaves for his “missions”.

I sat on the bed, studying vigorously. If there’s anything that can get my mind off of the fact that Ethan had a job again tonight, it’s homework. I hate it, but I’m too concentrated to think of anything else, and truthfully, ever so often my mind drifts and I’m left looking at the clock on the bedside. I can feel my anxiety build up, and then, I find it hard to breathe, my mind racing with thoughts I don’t like. I squeeze my eyes shut, desperate to think of anything else.

anonymous asked:

I don't think you did it already so could you do the description thingy with the Justice League's Big 7 (minus Bruce since you already did him)?

Hal- Average height yet people always seem to think he’s shorter than he is. A bit handsome in that ruggedly, goofy way that would make him charming if he wasn’t such an obnoxious ass half the time. Bright green/grey that twinkle with or without a mask, a truly glittering smile on a broad chin . I feel like Hal would have kind of a big nose, slightly out of proportion with his face. Very messy mousy brown hair, constantly in a windswept state. Muscled but not overly so, just that he can fly with ease but not enough to truly impress any girls at the bar.

Barry- Tall, just shy of being too tall but skinny. His muscles are tight and ropy and ready to speed into action at a moment, there’s nothing for showing off with but Barry isn’t one to brag anyway. He’s gangly but surprisingly graceful. A bit of a baby face even as an adult, picturesque lidded sky blue eyes with a tiny nose and wide mouth for smiles and jokes and food. Cropped short sandy blond hair, carefully cut to ensure it doesn’t bother him while running. He is pretty pale too, it looks even lighter with his light hair and eyes. Large hands that can move quicker than light but always take those extra seconds to be gentle.

J'onn- As a Martian he is inhumanly tall, taller than Diana. His proportions don’t quite meet human standards which kind of makes people uncomfortable when they look at him. Thin, gangly, too long limbs, a chest cavity that’s too sharp in the wrong it makes him look gaunt. His skull is longer than a human, pulling back into almost a point. But no matter how inhuman he can appear (and he can appear more human, but among his friend he chooses to just be himself) his eyes are warm and red and terribly compassionate. A small mouth that conveys so much with the smallest smiles. His skin is green, but not a solid green. Like a chameleon, he shimmers between colors, unconsciously reacting to his environment and emotions. He is a kaleidoscope of every green imaginable and a few that aren’t.

Arthur- A contradiction. He is of reasonable height but the set of his shoulders and the tilt of his chin make him look taller. He radiates a feeling of authority and those who meet him get the sense that he is a leader of some sort. And yet he is not intimidating, he is conscientious and aware of everyone around him. Rounded cheeks but a square jaw, thick sun blond hair curling at his shoulders. He is broad, with powerful rolling muscles from swimming. Even he underestimates his own strength but an apology is always the first thing on his lips. Deep sea foam green eyes, a perfect mix of sea and shore on warm suntanned skin.

Diana- Taller by far than everyone save J'onn in his Martian form, like I’m talking 6.8-7’ tall. She is built like a warrior too, broad shoulder and muscles that look like they’d been sculpted from marble. In fact there’s this feeling you get when looking at her that she’s too perfect, she has this solid appearance to her like a statue. A long face with big, almost pouty lips. A Grecian nose, thick black eyebrows and dark, dark brown eyes that go on forever. The most luscious black hair, the color of raven’s wings that fall gracefully behind her buff back that never seems a hair out of place. She is well-built all over, an ample chest yes but with a broad base to support it. Bruce would have a difficult trying to lift her but she can easily hold up her male friends.

Clark- Clark is a big man who, miraculously, appears as a small man and no one knows how he does it. Even at his full height, shoulders back with all the power in the world, he seems just like everyone else. He’s broad too but not as wide as Arthur, and also unlike Arthur, every one of Clark’s movements are carefully measured and calculated. Caution is written in his feature, every flinch. His eyes are an electric, unearthly blue that are so inhuman looking people look at superman and believe him from another world. But behind slightly tinted glasses with Clark’s eyes pointed at the ground they seem perfectly ordinary. Slick black hair, carefully kept like Barry’s to avoid it becoming a problem. A good American square-jawed boy, dimples when he smiles and a cute button nose. He exudes an easy charm that settles down most everyone he meets.

anonymous asked:

Hey there. I want to get better at drawing more diverse people, but I don't know what's good and what's bad if that makes sense. Basically I'm looking for advice for what the dos and donts of it are. Sorry if this seems silly, but I just don't know what to do...

No, this is a great ask! Thank you very much!

Now, disclaimer - I’m only half of color, I’m not Black (antiblackness seems to be the most prominent) and I also don’t face colorism, so if anyone else wants to correct me on this, feel free. But here are some Dos and Donts that I’ve learned from my own art experience.

Don’t: try to pick a skin color on your own.

Now, this is for the artist trying to get more into drawing different skintones without a lot of experience using colors. Many people say, “what if I make their skin too yellow,” for example, when drawing an Asian character. In my opinion, trying to perfect the skin color in the color wheel is hard, because colors are just difficult in general for me.

Do: Use a skintone chart for reference.

I use this one, and have actually saved it to my desktop for quick reference. It is much easier to color pick the one that is closest to your headcanon and go with it, instead of messing around for hours with the color. (this one is by thelizalot)

Don’t: Try to guess a character of color’s skin color without looking at a reference.

There may be a chance that it is way off and too light, and it becomes unintentional whitewashing.

Do: Use a color swatch if there is a canon one, use references from the show, etc.

Or, for example in the Yogscast fandom, grab their Minecraft skin off of skinsearch. This can be useful for other things too, like trying to get the perfect shade of blue.

Don’t: Simply color in the character with the correct skintone, but draw the character without POC features (if it is canon they have those features). 

I’ve seen this complaint by some Black people I follow, and as an Asian person, I agree. It’s weird to see artists give characters “white features” and erase their features such as bigger lips, noses, and monolidded eyes.

Do: Learn how to draw POC features! 

I use references for my art, it makes it much easier to draw. For example, I used a reference for Lalnable Hector’s dreadlocks, and I used a reference for Sips’s face in another art I drew (the shark tank AU, haha). Learn how to use these features correctly. Imo, over-exaggeration and caricaturization is easy to avoid. Usually, you don’t end up with a caricature unless you’re trying to do so.

Don’t: Focus on stereotypes and make characters one-dimensional jokes.

For all the artists who want to headcanon as well as draw! Please treat characters of color as characters!! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people reducing them to jokes (think Reaper and La Chancla jokes from Overwatch, and D.va and gremlin jokes from Overwatch). Be careful around this, and analyze your instincts to create a new headcanon for a character. Think about if it makes sense for the character and isn’t OOC. For example, once I told my white friend that I headcanoned Eldraphyn as Black, and they started saying that she could rap and she was the Sassy Friend and. Like. What. What. If you see Rule the World, Eldraphyn is very mild-mannered and royal in appearance and gesture and is kinda innocent tbh. Don’t change a character’s personality to fit a stereotype.

Do: Create depth in your characters

Don’t just talk about their race, talk about them! For example, yes, Nano is Asian. But what about her story? What were her origins like? You don’t have to focus on the fact that she’s Asian, just include it. (I like that, so I bolded it).

Don’t: Be unable to own up to your mistakes.

If you unintentionally whitewash a character, admit it. Don’t fight POC if they tell you that you’ve had racist behavior. Mistakes will happen.

Do: Apologize and move on.

If you are in the wrong, admit it. Apologize and don’t do it again! Also, it is not a matter of “If I offended you, I’m sorry,” it is, “I recognize that this may have been harmful behavior and I’m sorry that I did it. I won’t do it again.” It isn’t a matter of never making mistakes, it is how you learn and grow from them!

Here is a good post for this too: here

Hey! Sorry if this is a stupid idea, but if it's okay, could you maybe write one where y/n hates herself a lot, but her friends don't know, bc she doesn't show it or really open up honestly to people much? But Isaac picks up on how she won't accept/brushes off compliments, uses self-deprecating humour a little too much etc. and tries to talk to her about it, and at first she pretends she doesn't know what he's talking about, then gets angry with him, before he convinces her to hear him out?❤️xx

Musical Inspiration: “Lay It All On Me”- Rudimental (Feat. Ed Sheeran)



“Looking lovely today, (Y/n)!” Stiles chirps as you walk by in the hallway.

“Stuff it, Stilinski,” you say as you walk by, forcing a smile so anyone watching the exchange thinks you’re joking, so they don’t see how sick the compliment makes you feel. You know you look like crap. You don’t need Stiles’ pity. When you’re a safe distance away, you can feel your smile sour before falling off your face completely.

You glance at Isaac as you pass and he’s staring back at you. You give him a tight smile too and keep walking.

The bad news? Isaac is not so easily fooled.

At lunch, Allison sits down next to Lydia with a groan. “This English project is going to kill me.”

“Well, it’s a good thing you got such an amazing partner then,” Lydia says with a flip of her hair and a wink.

Allison and Lydia got lucky. Poor Scott, not so much.

“Too bad you’re stuck with me,” you tell him with a pinched grin.

“Hey, you’re better than being stuck with Stiles,” He laughs, ducking the pack of crackers that Stiles throws in protest. Somehow you doubt that’s actually true.

You ignore Stiles and Scott’s playfight about how Stiles can never actually stay on topic when he’s got a paper to write, only vaguely hearing Stiles’ comment about “you write one paper on male circumcision and no one will let you forget it” as you study your food.

That’s one of the things that’s kind of a relief about lunch, no one really pays attention to you so you don’t usually have to keep up the mask you’re always wearing. Usually. Today, you look up from arranging your food in a color-coded line to find Isaac watching you from the seat across from you.

He doesn’t say anything but he doesn’t look away either and that makes your skin itch with the need to get away from those watchful eyes, protect yourself in case he’s seen something he shouldn’t have through the cracks in your carefully built façade.

“I gotta go,” you mutter, not really expecting anyone else to notice as you rise from the table and dump your full tray of food into the trash, returning it to the kitchen, and making a hasty exit.

“(Y/n),” You hear Isaac’s voice chasing after you.

You move faster and don’t let him catch you alone.

~*~

You worry over the Isaac situation on your way home that afternoon, but you don’t expect it to follow you to your front door.

You’ve just managed to change into some more comfortable clothes, baggy and covering nearly every inch of skin aside from your neck and face. It’s so much easier when you don’t have to pretend to be okay for all of those people at school, when you can just wallow in the warmth an oversized sweatshirt and deny you have any feelings about anything at all, least of all yourself.

You’re about to get yourself some water and watch some television, let it drown out your thoughts for a while, when there’s a knock on the door.

You open it, expecting it to be another package that one of your parents has ordered from the pet store. They dote on that damn dog so much, you often wonder why they had you at all. It’s obviously their preferred child.

“Isaac?” The sight surprises you. None of your friends has actually cared enough to come to your house before, and it’s even more unexpected because it appears that Isaac has walked here through a downpour. The boy is dripping wet on your porch.

“Hi,” he says, shoulders hunched against the cold.

“Come in,” you pull him through the door and close it behind him. You can’t exactly leave him standing in the rain, no matter how squirmy and nervous your stomach feels at the sight of him. “What the hell are you doing? Are you trying to get sick?”

“Not exactly,” he answers, shivering in his wet clothes.

You sigh. “I’ll get you a towel and drive you home.”

“Wait,” he stops you, grasping your wrist before you can turn away. “I need to talk to you about something.”

“You can talk in the car,” you tell him, trying to pull away.

“(Y/n), I know something’s going on with you,” Isaac says, not letting you get away so easily. “You can talk to me.”

“Gee, thanks for the offer but I’m fine.” You tug your arm from his hold as you speak through clenched teeth.

“Don’t lie to me,” Isaac’s eyes peer into yours and there’s an odd sense of desperation buried in their depths. “I know what you’re doing and it’s not healthy.”

“Oh, really? And what am I doing, Mr. Know-it-all?” You ask, crossing your arms and staring back defiantly.

“You don’t take compliments, you make jokes at your own expense. Half the time, you don’t eat,” Isaac keeps stepping closer to you and you don’t even realize that you’ve been backing away until you hit the wall behind you.

Feeling defensive, you push off the wall and make him take a step back this time. “I don’t have an eating disorder,” you seethe. You feel a bit better at making him be the one to retreat as you force him back another step. “And what makes you think you know anything after one day of watching?”

This time, when you take a step forward, he doesn’t take a step back. Instead, he captures your cheek in his right hand. “I don’t think that. I think you’re hurting more than you’d ever tell anyone and it’s making you see yourself in not a very positive light. And just because you’re actually seeing me for the first time, doesn’t mean that I’m only just seeing you.”

“No,” you whisper. If he’s been watching you, who knows what he’s seen. “You should go.”

You try to push him away but he won’t allow it, wrapping his arms around you until you stop struggling and accept his embrace.

“No, no, no,” your voice is almost lost in the fabric of his rain-damp shirt. “You can’t see me. I don’t even want to see me.”

“It’s okay,” Isaac whispers into your hair. “Stop doing this to yourself. You deserve so much better.”

Maybe it’s because you’ve been attention starved for so long. Maybe it’s hearing someone say that you deserve better. Maybe it’s because it’s Isaac who you know has had it so much worse than you do but still seems to believe that your pain carries the same weight as his own. Whatever it is, you can’t stop yourself from sobbing into his chest as you clutch his shirt in fisted hands.

“Oh… don’t cry…” Isaac hugs you tighter, one hand moving in soothing caresses up and down the back of your shirt.

Isaac holds you until your sobs are reduced to sniffles.

“How did you know?” You ask, looking at him with watery eyes.

He shrugs with a sad smile, “Been there.”

You don’t feel any better about yourself, not now, but having someone know how you feel isn’t quite as scary as you’d always imagined. It’s a bit of a relief actually, knowing that for once you aren’t alone.

thedemigodsinthebluepolicebox  asked:

Hello :) I was wondering what type of fighting styles you imagine each character to have. For example, Astrid uses a bit more of an acrobatic style, but we don't really get to see Hiccup, Snotlout, Tuffnut, Ruffnut, or Fishlegs' style.

Oh my good Thor’s thunder I will love you forever for this question! 

It certainly is true that Astrid’s fighting abilities are showcased the most memorably and frequently in DreamWorks productions. In the two movies, she certainly fights the most of anyone aside from Stoick and Gobber. That said, examining the episodes in Riders and Defenders of Berk reveal instances of every one of the youths fighting. I have taken the time to compile some of these incidences and describe the fighting styles I see from them.

These probably also will make their way into gif sets in the near future because why not! It’s pretty cool to see.

But without further ado, some analysis.

Astrid: Light-Footed Acrobatics

As you say so truly, Astrid’s fighting style is acrobatic in nature. She fights very light on her feet, allowing herself to make some impressively dexterous moves. Astrid can, at an instant, do handsprings, somersaults, bends, jumps, dives, and even flips when fighting. Her flexibility, quick reflexes, strength, and knowledge of gymnastics makes her the most polished fighter of all the Hooligan youths. She contains the most grace and the most practiced, impressive ability. It is definitely the flashiest, most trained style of anyone.

Most of these acrobatics she uses for the defensive. Astrid utilizes her full arsenal of light-footed tricks to dance her way out of danger, avoiding obstacles in her path - and can even do so when holding both a shield and an axe. Sometimes she does use her tumbles for offensive maneuvers, such as seen when she knocks Hiccup to the ground in the second-to-last gif.

When Astrid is on the offensive, she is much more likely to swing and strike hard. She appears to be learned in both hand-to-hand combat styles as well as with weapons. She can work well with a shield, though also does well without, and her most trusted weapon and method of attack is with an axe. This she can swing with notable force and knock people to the ground. As soon as she knocks them to the ground, she restrains them so they cannot rise again. I have not shown all instances of that visually, but will cite that Astrid knocks Snotlout to the ground and slams a boot in his face during “Fright of Passage,” while she tackles Hiccup to the ground and wrenches his arm behind his back in “Gem of a Different Color.”

Hiccup: Captain America

I mean Captain America

America

I MEAN HE’S CAPTAIN BERK

But I mean really. Just like Captain America tosses the shield around to other Avengers and back again in Age of Ultron, and just like Steve Rogers makes creative use of his shield in different fights, so also does Hiccup use this weapon in ingenious offensive and defensive maneuvers. These gifs are not even half the instances of Hiccup fighting with his shield, yet this does provide a good sample of what he can do. We can easily see that Hiccup, in the DreamWorks universe, makes use of a shield as his primary fighting style.

Don’t get me on a fanboy rave of his swordfighting skills in the books. Just don’t.

Hiccup’s moves are wide and varied with the shield. Sometimes he uses it simply to block objects and redirect arrow fire. Other times, he uses it as a bludgeoning force or a way to push back at his enemies. Yet other times, he makes very creative use of the shield, which contains both a crossbow and a harpoon. He grabs his opponents with the rope, or elsewise uses that rope to pull objects down on his enemies. He shoots out arrows against his enemies or other clever targets. 

To give one example:

In “The Night and the Fury” Hiccup launches out the rope and hooks it to a tree branch above Dagur’s head. Dagur taunts Hiccup that he missed his target. But Hiccup asks, “Oh did I?” and then tugs on his shield. The hook pulls on the tree branch it is attached to, breaks the branch, and a huge heap of wood falls onto Dagur’s head.

And let’s not even talk about all the crazy things he does with that shield in “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.”

Hiccup is not as light on his feet as Astrid, not as quick, not as flexible, not as polished in his movements. He is, after all, not precisely a trained fighter, and his stiff posture with semi-locked knees really makes that clear. What Hiccup can do is make use with tools, which makes perfect sense given his background as an inventor.

Hiccup fights best from a distance where he is not in direct physical contact with his foes. However, there are a few instances where he makes close-ranged maneuvers. While Hiccup tends not to be as powerful or physical as Astrid (or the others), there are times when he does swing with his full force.

Exhibits A and B below:

A. Riders of Berk: We Are Family Part 2

B. Riders of Berk: Defiant One

These hard-hitting swings are, admittedly, a bit rare for Hiccup, nor do they carry as much power as they would with other Vikings. In the first example, Hiccup only dazes the Outcast he is fighting. In the second one, he does knock the Outcast out cold, but that is after the man has had some blows already landed.

Altogether, then, Hiccup is a shield fighter. And he’s a fairly clean fighter, too, simply making moves to get the job done effectively but not (usually) too roughly. He really is Captain Berk and no one can convince me otherwise.

Snotlout: Musclehead Moves

Now this guy I love to watch fight. He’s actually got some pretty good action footage in Riders of Berk, particularly the episode “Defiant One”.

Snotlout’s fighting style is very clearly defined, just like Astrid’s and Hiccup’s respective styles are. And it’s different than both of theirs, too, and reflects the fact that Snotlout has a bit more weight in muscle than either of them.

Snotlout’s fighting style uses both arms and legs to punch and kick at his enemies. His technique consists of strong, muscled swings that move directly, bluntly at his foes. He does have some fast reflexes which especially allow him to duck and dodge blows, but his fighting style is one of standing up, knees bent, and directly confronting his attackers. He’s a bit more of a boxer than either Astrid or Hiccup to say the least.

Each step Snotlout takes is firmly planted. Defensively, he dodges by taking a step and whirling his torso, but overall standing his ground. Offensively, he swings his arms and shoulders a lot and very forcefully, using it both as a way of avoid blows, as well as preparing for powerful swings against his attackers. He is not afraid to throw weight and strength straight at his attackers in full force, and will even throw himself down or slide down to land on top of his enemies. 

The fact Snotlout is right handed and right footed also really plays out in these gifs. He might be a powerful socker with all his body, a proper muscled Viking man who stands square on with his attackers, but Snotlout knows that his right arm and his right leg are more coordinated and more effective at landing blows. In most of these gifs, Snotlout is holding a blunt object in his right hand, and his hardest blows come from that arm. He kicks with both legs, but the hard spinning, roundhouse-esque kick in the second to last gif comes from his right side as well. He is more powerful on that side of his body.

It seems then that Snotlout has some natural talent at fighting. He has probably trained a little and has been augmented in his abilities from sports (think Thawfest). He is not as supple, graceful, or showy as Astrid, nor has he probably anywhere near the number of hours of practice she does. There are many times indeed he stumbles or wobbles when dodging blows. He might have some natural physical abilities, but he is by no means a master warrior, just a muscled one with good reflexes and instinct.

Fishlegs: Brute Force

Fishlegs’ fighting style still comes as a surprise to me sometimes, but it is consistent throughout the entire series. He is almost like the Hulk. When he is Bruce Banner, he is a quiet, nerdy man who does not seem like he would harm anyone. In fact, Fishlegs typically is someone timid of battle, a nervous screamer who prefers to flee rather than stand his ground. However, when Mr. Ingerman becomes enraged, he turns into a rather fearsome fighter that charges head on with a startling roar.

Fishlegs is very much a brute battler. He uses his mass and his passions to fuel himself in battle. He will tear into things, throw things, smash things, claw at things, and bowl fearlessly head on into things. There is no sense of restraint in his movements for many of his battles. A wild eye comes into him during one fight between himself and the Outcasts, and after he cackles, he asks something along the lines of, “Is it bad that felt good?”

I imagine Fishlegs’ fighting style develops over time. He does enter some fights with an intentional boldness rather than a passionate rage. In those cases, he is more even-headed, and while he still faces opponents directly, he is not going to claw everything to death. The end of “Gem of a Different Color” highlights that. I can only imagine how it progresses, but by How to Train Your Dragon 2, he is pretty calm in flopping over onto one of Drago’s guards and using his own weight to knock someone down. He seems rather amused, rather than upset, when he makes that move.

Ruffnut and Tuffnut: Anything Goes Cat-Clawing

I don’t like grouping the twins together in an analysis, for each are their own separate person, but from what I can tell, the Thorston siblings fight fairly similarly. There are some distinguishable differences between them, but I will start with the overarching general first.

Ruffnut and Tuffnut are probably the least “skillful” fighters of the group. They tend to simply whack and attack. They are very much close-range fighters, getting right up and very physical with the person they are fighting (usually each other). Definitely, they are the most physical, grappling-styled fighters of any of the group.

The twins are also probably the dirtiest fighters. While Astrid has a gymnast’s grace, Snotlout has a boxer’s swing, and Hiccup has a shield-based style, Ruffnut and Tuffnut just… go. They will push, pull, yank, shove, trip, tackle, and smash their opponent. It is a lot of quick, jostling, wrestling movements. Rather than moving efficiently, effectively, and intentionally in a controlled maneuver, they grapple and wildly swing. The one advantage this has is that they seem a bit more comfortable fighting without weapons than some of the others.

But Ruffnut and Tuffnut do use weapons. It is the same sort of “anything goes” principle that happens with their hands. Gobber commends Ruffnut for using her shield as a bludgeoning weapon at the start of “Gem of a Different Color.” And unlike Hiccup, who uses his shield to block and shove back in close quarters, Ruffnut and Tuffnut are complete brutes with their shields. Ruffnut is a bit more aggressive here than Tuffnut, and she seems to be a bit more of an offensive fighter than her brother. In fact Ruffnut can be downright brutal. Both of them, though, are notably physical and hard-whacking when wielding shields or just about anything.

There are not many instances of Ruffnut and Tuffnut fighting together, but I firmly believe they do this a lot. It would make sense. When they fly Barf and Belch, the Thorstons work as a team to wreak destruction. And since they tend to do everything else together, and stay by each others’ sides all the time during their Dragon Training days, I suspect they fight together, too. The final gif shows them jumping off a mast and sliding a ship’s sail together to knock out enemies with their feet. I would not be surprised if they have other such coordinated twin maneuvers up their sleeves, too, when they fight together.

The Dragon Academy

The Dragon Academy very frequently fights on dragons. In the skies, every individual has their own unique fighting style, too. I did not elaborate upon that in this analysis, but I certainly could at another point in time. The fighting styles are related to how they work on the ground, though of course it is altered due to the nature of being in the air.

What is really cool about all this, though, is that everyone has been animated with a very clear, distinct style of fighting. If I may finally get all my Marvel analogies out of the way, Astrid is the Black Widow, Hiccup is Captain America, Snotlout is Thor, Fishlegs is the Hulk, and Ruffnut and Tuffnut, and the twins are Thor and Loki on the Bifrost. You can disagree with those as you see fit, but regardless, every one of the teens fights differently. All makes sense given their background and personality.

And it’s really honestly quite fun to watch them.

anonymous asked:

hi there, i hope im not bothering you. i watched bbc's sherlock and am right now catching up witch doctor who (fifth season right now) and i see many people complaining about moffat? i don't understand that 100% and i thought you might explain? sorry for interrupting!

You’re not bothering me dear, don’t worry. I’m going to preface this by saying this is my opinion and whether you (you being anyone who is reading this, not just you personally Nonnie) agree with it or not does not change the fact that I am entitled to my opinion (because I’ve been having some issues lately with people saying my opinion of Moffat is wrong, and there’s no such thing as “wrong” opinion — it’s a personal thing).

That said, there are quite a few reason people don’t like Moffat’s Who. I’m going to split this into four categories — storylines, treatment of women in Moffat’s Who, the Doctor in Moffat’s Who, and Moffat the person.

Buckle up, because these tend to get a bit long. Since you said you just started series five, I should warn you that this is not going to spoiler-free, as my opinion on Moffat comes from watching the show, and referencing examples is a key part of understanding why I don’t like him. I’d also like to say that you shouldn’t let my (or anyone else’s opinion) keep you from continuing the show. Everyone should form their own opinion.

So. Let’s start.

Storylines: Moffat’s storylines tend to be convoluted and full of “timey wimey” non-explanations to justify everything. There are plot holes in the show so big you could drive a truck through them. He creates all these grand elaborate storylines, and it’s clear he has no idea how he’s going to follow through. Matt Smith’s entire tenure as the Doctor is proof of this. Moffat got to Matt’s last episode and realized “Shit, Matt is leaving and I have all these open storylines, what am I gonna do with them?” And what did he do indeed? Created a smorgasbord of an episode in which nothing happened — commonly referred to as “Day of the Doctor.” Moffat’s storylines look good on the surface, but the deeper you look, the more you realize, “Wow, he has no idea what he’s doing, he just likes using flashy effects and making things explode.”

Treatment of Women: Moffat has no respect for women. I’ll get more into that later, but I mention it now because it definitely colors the way he treats women in the show. What do Amy, Clara, and River all have in common? They were all “special” in someway, and their lives all revolved completely and entirely around the Doctor.

Amy: The girl who waited. The girl who spent her entire life waiting for the Doctor to come back, because apparently that’s what people do. Sure she made a show of “moving on” — getting a job, going out with Rory, etc. But she was still willing to give all that up just to run off with the Doctor the second he gave her a minute of attention again. That’s not a life.
River:
The woman who killed the Doctor —OR— the Doctor’s wife. Either way, she had sense of self. Her entire identity revolved around the Doctor — she was raised to kill him and as a result became obsessed with him, and later transferred that obsession into “loving” him when her mission to kill him failed.
Clara: The impossible girl. Her entire first season on the show revolved around being a mystery that the Doctor had to solve. We knew next to nothing about her other than that some clones or something had once appeared in other parts of the Doctor’s life (yes it’s later explained that she jumped through his timeline, but that’s all we knew about her for the longest time).

Remember Rose, Martha, and Donna? They weren’t special in any way. They were normal people living normal lives until they met the Doctor. They had back stories and families who cared about them and jobs and responsibilities. They didn’t have to be “special” for the Doctor to care about them.

Getting off the special train here. His general writing of women just isn’t enjoyable. He uselessly oversexualized River, and the “love triangle” between Rory, Amy, and the Doctor was just unnecessary. It would’ve been a much better story if Amy had struggled between living her dream of seeing the stars and living a life with the man she loves (Rory). But no, Moffat had to introduce the “well maybe Amy actually loves the Doctor” storyline.

And River as the Doctor’s life just makes me angry. Like I said before, I don’t believe she actually loved him — she was just obsessed. It was a dangerously unhealthy relationship, with River giving everything to the Doctor and getting nothing back in return. Which is demonstrated clearly by her line in Angels Take Manhattan — “Don’t let [the Doctor] see your damage.” No, River. That is not how a relationship works. If you’re hurting, you should let your husband see it, because your husband should want to take care of you. It’s clearly a dysfunctional relationship. There’s nothing “romantic” about it.

As I said before, I disliked Clara’s entire storyline, and I really dislike the way the Doctor treats her in this current season. But I’ll get into that next.

Moffat’s Doctor: Since he’s now written two Doctors, I’ll split this up into two categories.

Eleven: Eleven was, essentially, a cosmic, bratty child. The whole with fezzes and bowties being “cool” was fun at first, but then it just got ridiculous. He also used humans, which disgusts me to no end (like using them to destroy the Silence). Remember River’s line from TATM about not letting the Doctor see your damage? That gives you a pretty good idea of who he is — he’s incapable of handling the consequences of his actions, and therefore needs to be “protected” from all the bad things he does. That doesn’t just apply to River, but to anyone he’s ever hurt (which as we know the Doctor thinks he hurts everyone he comes into contact with).

Not being able to handle consequences actually leads me to another point — Moffat’s handling of the Time War. Rather than deal with the consequences of the Doctor having to destroy his entire planet (which I would have found to be a much more interesting storyline), he simply rewrote it so the Doctor could have a happy ending and essentially erased seven seasons of character development. Moffat sees the Doctor has a god, and “consequences” are below him.

Twelve: Twelve absolutely disgusts me. I knew the moment it was announced that Twelve was going to be a “dark” Doctor, it was going to be awful, because Moffat can’t write emotional upheaval or consequences (I’ll get into that in a minute), and those are two big parts of being dark. Moffat doesn’t get that though. He seems to think that “dark” = “asshole” which is exactly what he’s turned Twelve into. Which brings me to what I was saying before about his current treatment of Clara — he’s horribly sexist toward her, insulting her appearance every chance he gets. That’s not okay. There are children watching this show, including little girls, who are now looking at themselves and wondering if the Doctor thinks they’re fat too. And before you say I’m overreacting, I’ve seen actual proof of that from other posts (unfortunately I can’t find them right now, but if I do I’ll gladly show you). And it makes me sad, because I really did want to like Twelve — Peter Capaldi is awesome. But Twelve is awful.

Moffat The Person: Moffat is a sexist, homophobic asshole. Don’t believe me? Have some quotes:

About women: “There’s this issue you’re not allowed to discuss: that women are needy. Men can go for longer, more happily, without women. That’s the truth. We don’t, as little boys, play at being married - we try to avoid it for as long as possible. Meanwhile women are out there hunting for husbands.”

About bisexuals: I can’t find the exact quote for this one, unfortunately (not one from a reliable source), but here’s a summary: Moffat is happy that bisexuals “probably don’t even watch” his shows because they’re off “having far too much fun” getting laid. If they were watching, he’d have to make them characters or something, which would be weird, because his gay characters are “going through a phase” anyway, like Irene Adler was before she met the man who could turn her straight. (from here).

Yeah. These are actual quotes from this actual human being. This human being who is in charge of writing one of the longest-running and most popular shows in television history. He’s also horribly degrading to DW fans, saying things like how we don’t need explanations for things that happen on the show (hence his timey-wimey non-explanations), and he acts like we’re all morons.

And before someone says “Oh but he was bullied as a child, don’t be too hard on him!” Yeah, no. I was bullied as a child too, and you know what? I didn’t turn into an asshole. I put all my energy into trying to make people feel better about themselves, rather than saying they’re needy or don’t need representation because they’re too busy having sex anyways.

So here you have it. For the tl;dr version (this is over 1500 words, if you read all of this then god bless you): Moffat’s treatment of women is despicable, his writing of the Doctor and the show in general is awful, and he’s a horrible human being.

Thank you and again, if you stuck with me for this long, god bless. Please remember that this is all my opinion, and if you don’t like it, that’s fine, but don’t tell me I’m wrong. I’m just as entitled to my opinion as everyone else is.

Nohrian Festival: Leo’s Special Illustration + Convo

As requested!

Soooo… Did you know that Leo is fond of tomatoes? He’s fond of tomatoes. Like, REALLY fond of them.

They don’t state exactly what his costume is supposed to be. It looks like a slightly simpler and different color version of the “vampire” costume that Anna provides for Subaki, so Leo’s too is probably supposed to be a vampire costume. Although, to me it looks more like a typical young early/mid 19th century young man’s formal suit. …Which is precisely what Dracula and other movie vampires wear, isn’t it. Heh. 

(I’ve seen other sites say that Subaki’s suit is a prince costume, but Anna refers to it as belonging to “a sucker of blood,” and that sounds like a vampire to me. Of course, it could be a vampire prince, or a really bloodthirsty prince… Wait, why am I talking so much about Subaki here?! This is about Leo! And tomatoes!)

anonymous asked:

Don't get me wrong, I love the new BW series, and I find the character of Anya/Recluse enjoyable, but I can't shake the feeling that if Marvel hadn't killed off Yelena in such an idiotic way, Marvel wouldn't have to keep creating new characters for Nat that have the exact same motive as Yelena? :/

So far, there are three big things that separate Yelena from Anya to me:

  • Anya is explicitly a contemporary of Natasha’s, so she represents the old ways, the old ideology. She isn’t a post-Soviet construct or a late-nineties commentary on Cold War superheroes. Note that to defeat Anya, Natasha has to go “old school” and back to her roots. The childhood relationship they share also offers a level of personal connection and grudge.
  • Natasha saw Yelena as the product and victim of the same system that destroyed her own life. So he goal was always to save Yelena from that system, though she went about it in pretty terrible, twisted ways sometimes. Anya, however, is trying to recreate that system, and bringing all the worst elements of the Red Room back under her direction. She’s a foil to Natasha because she isn’t a victim, and I have to think Natasha’s reactions to her will be colored by that.

  • Yelena’s overwhelming motivation and sense of identity were bound up in the codename Black Widow. She wanted to be the legend Natasha was. Anya has her own codename, and while she’s still determined to beat Natasha, I don’t think she wants to be Natasha quite the same way that Yelena did.

As far as the mythology is concerned the last bit might be the most important. Yelena’s attachment to the Black Widow codename made her really hard to use outside of specific Black Widow stories. These days Marvel has embraced the idea of multiple Hawkeyes, Wasps, Captain Americas, &c, but in the early 2000s they did not.  And being pigeonholed as “the knock-off Black Widow” imo probably led to a lot of her bland later appearances and weird attempts at rebranding, like when Bendis made her a Super-Adaptoid. So hopefully there will be less impulse for Marvel to do really dumb things with Anya because she’s starting from a less superficially redundant place.

But in terms of this current story I hope to see more of the other things that make her new, like her dynamic with her mother or the spy organization she controls. Stuff that doesn’t feel like a Yelena rehash.

And just in general, I too love the current run but my one complaint would be the lack of existing characters. It’s early going, obviously, but I’d love to see more of Maria Hill or Isaiah, or have Black Rose show up, or something. #WheresLiho #Liho2k16

now, i get everyone has their own opinions. one may see yoon/min as romantic, i for one, did not. however, to say that none of the connections are “truly romantic” is a heavy statement. yes, i’m not saying romantic yoonkook is confirmed but it’s confirmed  but out of all the pairings, they have the most to back it up. hyyh deals with a lot of controversial issues (mental illness, abuse ect.) so it wouldn’t surprise me if the got into the issue of feeling love and attraction for someone of the same gender? it wouldn’t be that surprising given the other things mentioned in hyyh. and the only pairing that could portray this issue is yoonkook. why? because in hyyh, we kind of know what all the other members are going through, except yoonkook. their story has no plot, no point, unless you look at it from the aspect of them as being in love

(but that’s just showing a friendship. srsly all the pairings show friendship. why would the storyline of just yoonkook be friendship, when all the other pairings show friendship + another thing. doesn’t make sense)

again, i’m not saying it’s #confirmed or anything but it is but there’s stuff backing it up

i need u. yoongi is shown in a hotel room. he looks over at the empty side of the bed. it’s obvious that he’s missing someone who’s supposed to be there

i highly doubt he’s missing “just a friend” there’s other ways to portay that instead of using a bed. which implies something different ok

in run the two are seen fighting. we have no idea why. in i need u the two seem depressed, again we don’t know why. it would make sense if they were in love because that’s seen as “wrong” or “different” and they have to keep it secret/can’t be together and it makes the mad/frustrated, unable to keep going. 

even the little things in the prologue. all the smiles yoonkook gives each other, all the touches. being next to each other all the time. when they’re all sitting around the fire, everyone is sitting normally next to each other. except yoonkook. jungkook places his head on yoongi’s thigh and everyone acts like it’s totally normal. but it’s just them. implying that they’re more than just friends? they’re a little more affectionate towards each other?

yoonkook has also been associated with blue roses, and here’s something about those taken from this site 

Blue and its deeper shade purple have for long symbolized mystery and ambiguity. Again, the fact that the blue rose is a flower that has been fabricated increases this sense of surrealism. The meaning of the blue rose in this sense is an appreciation for something that cannot be grasped in full measure.

The lighter shade of the blue rose, which is almost akin to lilac, expresses the first flush of love. Enchantment, a feeling of being completely bowled over in the very first instance is another delightful meaning of the blue rose. Lavender and lilac have both been associated with romance since time immemorial.

The blue rose is also used as a symbol of caution. It expresses a need to be discrete. Again, there is a whiff of secrecy and mystery as expressed by the blue color.

New opportunities and new possibilities are also some other meanings of the blue rose. The blue rose denotes the excitement and the possibilities that new ventures bring. The mysterious beginnings of new things and the excitement therein are very nicely expressed by this flower.

The blue rose is a flower that seeks to convey a message of mystery, enchantment and a sense of the impossible. One should never forget that as a flower that is not found freely in nature, the blue rose has a certain charm and unique mystery that does not reveal itself freely.

idk that sounds like it fits….

and then if you want to go farther back. we can go to danger where you can see posters in the back of yoongi’s and jungkook’s solo shots that says “love unites”. which is a poster that relates to gay marriage. maybe it’s a coincidence, but isn’t it funny that it only appears in jungkook’s and yoongi’s shots?

yoonkook is also heavily associated with fire. fire can mean a lot of things, destruction, pain etc. but it can also represent forbidden passions

even the broken mirrors associated with yoonkook can fit in some way. 

don’t even get me started on begin/first love……….that was just full of romantic yoonkook hints and apparently no one sees that.

so say what you want and ship what you want but idk, all the signs of romantic love are there………..

Could u write 76xreader where shes w him when hes just fuckin destroying some guys like he did in his short, & she finds it hot so when he's done he thinks he's scared her and asks what's wrong and she has to actually tell him, and he's just 😎😏

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) yeah I could do that…. I guess…. (I’m horrible at self-inserts. so here’s some weird mix-form that I hope you don’t mind)


“And stay down” he growls, small drops of blood dripping from his fist. 

That guy had been beating down these four assholes within minutes, interrupting them from shoving and kicking a passing omnic. Their gang colors clearly showed, and he had punched them with the righteousness of someone who had seen too much, known too much.

His shoulders were wider than any man’s you’ve ever seen, accentuated by a colorful leather jacket bearing a big 76 on the back. You watched the scene unfold from a distance, alerted by the noise and commotion in the small street you live in. There had been several attacks like these over the past month, and this night, you had decided to at least try and help, so you grabbed the baseball bat your brother had gifted you more for protection than for anything else, and left the house.

When you spotted the masked vigilante, you were worried at first - another gang? Another player with his own agenda? - but the way he lectured them about leaving folks alone, underlining his statements with strong arms and a raspy voice, made you think otherwise. The way he handled those rookies, the self-assurance, the protectiveness - it’s got your mouth run dry and your blood going places it shouldn’t. 

Shit. He’s hot.
