20 year cycle

I’m already reading about a lot of people being disappointed by the kiss on the cheek Ran gave Shinichi, cause they were expecting something more than that - and honestly I was too, I was a little bit disappointed too when I found out that it was just a kiss on the cheek.

But you guys, think about it: this is the very first time after 1000+ chapters Shinichi and Ran can be sure they like each other

Follow me on this:

In the first episode Ran says she has a crush on Shinichi to Conan, so Shinichi knows she likes him, but Ran doesn’t know he knows. So Ran doesn’t know Shinichi likes her as well.
In London Shinichi confessed his love to Ran, and even though Shinichi knows Ran likes him as well Ran still doesn’t know he knows. She thinks that after that he’s waiting for an answer.

So, that kiss is basically Ran’s answer. For the first time after more than 20 years the cycle is completed: Shinichi told Ran he likes her and Ran answered she likes him too. I understand we’re all disappointed they didn’t share a proper kiss, but this is big. They know now. They finally know how they feel about each other, they both know how they truly feel about each other. And honestly that kiss is truly adorable. Ran ftw we’re blessed SHE PULLED HIM BY THE TIE

but-have-you-considered  asked:

I've been reading through TES in-game books and a question came up- how do you tell if a book is historical or fictional? Granted, there's historical fiction like Marobar Sul's dwener stuff, but how do we tell that as the player when it's not stated?

Much of the time, you can’t. Not reliably, at any rate. You’ve got to use context and your own judgement. Often, books that are fictional still contain important historical details, and books that are historical are, in part, fictionalized. 

That said, here are a few things I think about when trying to make the determination. 

Notes. Books sometimes include annotations that speak to their origin or veracity. Marobar Sul’s works, for example, have big ol “this stuff is fictional” disclaimers at the bottom of each text. Other texts state their historicity outright, or are noted to be historical documents. 

Format. If something is a narrative, especially if it features dialog, it is more likely to be fictional or fictionalized. 2920, for example, is based on historical events, but it’s author had no way of being in all those places at once and knowing what exactly the characters said. Similarly, if the story features characters who aren’t the sorts of people to be remembered by history, it is more likely to be fictional. An essay (a work not featuring characters or a storyline), on the other hand, is more likely to be about a historical subject.

Comparisons. How do the events and characters of the book, as well as its general tone, stack up to what we’ve seen in the rest of lore? Obviously, there’s some leeway here, since games cannot depict things as the “truly” are in lore, and lore has changed quite a bit in the nearly 20 years since Daggerfall. To cycle back to Marobar’s stuff, it doesn’t really mesh with everything else we’ve seen and been told about the Dwemer, so we can safely assume that it is mostly fiction.

“He tried to kill me,” Kavinsky replied. His eyes glittered. He had no irises. Just black and white. The line of his smile was ugly and lascivious. “And he doesn’t always do what he means to. And anyway, I’m harder to kill than that. You kill your old man?”

London tips pt.2: Theatre

Part of this series.

The basics:

What are prices like? Anywhere between 5 and 180 pounds for a standard seasonal show in central london. A fiver will get you standing at the Globe, but an Opera at the ROH could set you back 200 quid. An average west-end show will be between 30 and 90 pounds.

What’s the vibe - aka What do I wear? Anything you like, babe. London theatre is pretty laid back as a whole, so don’t fret if you didn’t bring your opera gloves. Any show will have its share of people in their full-on Sunday best, and people fresh from work, and people in trainers. You may have a gran in her pearl earrings on one side, and a teenager in a band shirt on the other side of you – approximate somewhere between that. All are welcome.

How do buy a ticket?

  1. In advance: If you live within reach of London/plan to be here for theatrical shenanigans, as soon as you hear about a play (an ad, an email, a newspaper article, rumour, anything) get online and get buying if you want the day and seat of your choice. You snooze you lose. The more popular things (read: anything with a celebrity) or the smaller venues (like the Donmar) can often sell out, or just sell out all the good seats. Those that don’t sell out may just leave you with the back rows if you don’t move fast. A simple google search will generally direct you to each theatre’s own distributor: this can be their own branded website, or sometimes one of the larger management companies like Nimax or Ambassadors theatre groups.
  2. The individual theatre’s street box office: I cannot stress this enough: If you are able to, GO IN PERSON. Rocking up at during business hours to the actual theatre you want to go to and speaking to the lil baby drama student on duty in the little glass booth will get you such treasure. Just tell them what you want, and hopefully they can help you out as see everything they have on their all-powerful booking screen and are generally sweethearts – on short notice this can be better than buying online, as theatres often have a volume of seats they only release on the day, and you can ask them for things like ‘do you have anything on a row-end/certain time/certain day/at this price’ or ‘can you sell me a standing ticket’ (for the sold out shows), or ‘where do I stand if I want to queue for returns’?.
  3. TKTS: if you wanna see the big hits (Phantom, Lion King, Book of Mormon etc), the jukebox vaudevilles (musicals based on movies, or based on ‘the songs of that popular band’), or the big celeb seasonal draws, then there’s a freestanding booth in Leicester Square called TKTS that is the big reputable ‘on-the-day’ discount seller for a lot of the big west-end crowd-pleasers. It’s on the south side of the square, and clearly-labelled TKTS. They do the big musicals and usually the west-end transfers of other theatres whose shows hit the big time (eg the NT will move its popular shows to a west end venue to clear their decks for more work at their main house, and allow them to run the play for longer) It’s same-day, so go ready with a free evening.
