But it also implies so much

Honestly, even though a lot of people are worried about either Eiffel of Minkowski dying in the next couple of episodes, I’m not even the least bit concerned about it. A lot of the concern has stemmed from the apology scene between them, and the painful trope of two estranged characters making peace before one of them dies. However, Gabriel has said, on multiple occasions, that if Wolf 359 is about anything, it is about the relationship between Eiffel and Minkowski. He has also said that he has the very ending of the series already planned out in his head. These two facts imply, at least to me, that the end of the series will involve the two of them. This trial by fire seems to me to be another chapter of their story, not the end of it.

The other characters, I’m not as sure about, but I also don’t think they are going to die. Lovelace still has so much story behind her, so many questions that have as of yet gone unanswered. It’s possible that they could be answered in the next few episodes, but given everything else that we know is going to happen, it seems unlikely that these questions will be answered well enough in so little time. Hilbert’s death is possible, especially if he used the chair, but I just don’t think there was enough buildup for it. Similarly, I can’t see Hera dying either. There was no buildup, and besides, Maxwell has already shackled her. Killing Hera would benefit no one at this point.

The SI-5 squad is trickier, but I also can’t see them dying. Kepler has a lot more story to tell, similar to Lovelace. His death would leave a lot of loose ends, and it wouldn’t hold as much emotional impact as another character death (and we all know Gabriel is about that Pain™). Jacobi’s death would be a bit cliché, in my opinion. Paired with his line, “Let’s go be monsters,” and the uncertain events of Time To Kill, his death now would be tinged with the theme of the valiant hero slaying the wicked beast. And, correct me if I’m wrong, but Gabriel isn’t really a writer of heroes, in that sense anyway. Maxwell is tough. Honestly, if anyone was going to die in the next couple of episodes, my money would be on her. She has had an arc, and I could see that arc ending here, with us disillusioned at the very end. However, I think that she also has an amazing potential to build from here, to switch directions. So, I don’t think that she is going to die either.

In summary, I don’t think anyone is going to die in Desperate Measures or Boléro. I think we are going to suffer in a very different way.

Forgot to mention but yesterday my mom asked me what I want for Christmas and I flat out told her ‘Kay so basically if I were get to one thing, at all, from anyone, it’d be a new tablet cause not having my digital drawing fix is suffering’ or something to that effect and she said 'okay but what if someone already took care of that what else would you like’

So that’s cool and implies that I won’t have to worry. God I miss drawing so much friends you have no idea.

Also she said she’ll buy me a tattoo for my next birthday rather than Christmas which is fine by me.

anonymous asked:

Could you write something fluffy about Kagami and Kuroko?

“You know, I could probably pick you up if I tried.”

Kuroko raised his head, blue eyes flashing dangerously. (Kagami could be electrified by those eyes; sometimes he wondered if Kuroko knew how brilliant his stare was when he was incensed by something, but he figured it was doubtful.) “I do not think that would be wise,” he said, in a way that strongly implied Kagami would be murdered in cold blood should he attempt to so much as step near him.

Kagami was not known for his self-preservation instincts, or for using his brain in ways unrelated to basketball. He also still clung (erroneously, and somewhat desperately) to the belief that he could beat Kuroko in a fight. In response to the threat in his boyfriend’s face, he only grinned back.

“You wouldn’t hurt me. I cook for you.”

An Old English word for library was “bōchord”, which literally means “book hoard”, and honestly I really think we should go back to saying that because not only does it sound really fucking cool, but it also sort of implies that librarians are dragons.

Why you really should believe in Steven.

Okay so I’ve been thinking a lot about Steven Universe to pass the time during the hiatus, and I’ve noticed a few things. 

Steven might actually be much more important than we realize. First, let’s look at this scene from Jail Break.

I mean, it was obviously significant at the time. Steven is human, and the Gems’ bodies are shown to work in very different ways then ours, so of course it makes sense that their force field wouldn’t effect him the same way. But is this the only way Steven could defy Gem technology? Could Jasper’s destabilizer even work on Steven? 

And also, let’s not forget Sadie’s fight in Island Adventure:

Now, I don’t want at all to imply that Sadie DIDN’T KICK ASS AND WASN’T COMPLETELY AWESOME. Because she really was. But didn’t anyone else find it a little odd that a gem monster, which the Chrystal Gems even struggled to beat sometimes, was beaten pretty quickly with a stick? 

But then I realized, there’s something in common between the two scenes above. Steven’s hand and Sadie’s spear are both organic.

Let’s take a step back: Many aspects of the Gem’s powers are portrayed as some sort of ‘physical hologram’.

In fact, so far all gem magic and technology is either based on real physical gems, or is a ‘physical hologram’.

Think about it: we’ve been told that Earth was invaded so that the Gems could harvest minerals to create more Gems. But does that really make sense? There are plenty of planets out there in the universe, and most of them are rich with minerals. Lapis Lazuli was able to fly into space at the end of Ocean Gem, meaning the Gems don’t need a planet with an atmosphere, so why was Earth important? 

I guess I’ve already made it obvious by now, but it’s because Earth has organic life. Something the gems never encountered before, and something none of their technology was ready for. Organic life itself disrupts the Gem’s holograms and it could be the key to defeating the invading Gems. 

OKAY SO, I WANT TO TAKE THIS ONE STEP FURTHER. 

What if Rose Quartz knew organic life was the key? What if she realized that humans actually could fend off the invasion, but that they lacked the strength or protection to survive the Gems’ attacks? That’s why she gave birth to Steven. Steven is the only human able to match the magical abilities of the Gems. 

And just listen to her message:

“You’re going to be something extraordinary. You’re going to be a human being… Take care of them Steven.” 

Rose poured her whole being into giving humanity one advantage, one person who could defend the Earth from the Homeworld Gems. And what better thing could there be to protect all humanity with, then a shield?

Kageyama, after some reflection: waIT DID I PRAISED HIS JUMPS IN FRONT OS HIS SISTER

Headcanon: Rei's necklace

In the manga, Rei is often shown wearing a necklace. In fact, during the earlier arcs, she’s never seen without it.

The Materials Collection even makes special mention of it.

It also mentions that, after transforming into Sailor Mars, the pendant moves to her waist and becomes a tool that helps her generate fire.

To me, this seems to imply that Rei’s pendant has a special significance to her. So I did a little digging through the manga, and lo and behold:

That’s right; Rei’s deceased mother, Risa (name revealed through PGSM, btw), owned the exact same necklace! See?

So my idea is that, before she died, Risa passed her necklace onto Rei and Rei’s treasured it ever since. She treasures it so much that it actually becomes a part of her fuku and helps her with her powers; in a way, it’s almost like Risa herself is supporting and helping her daughter even though she died years ago.

In other news, those two videos confirmed some things ive been thinking about for awhile.

One, Danny is super tactile (which is adorable). Hands are everywhere and he likes to lean on Arin during sessions which is also super cute.

Two, Arin likes to give Danny his undivided attention when he speaks (if hes not focused on the game). Like his whole body turns to face him which is also super cute.

Three, Danny apparently does alot of jerking off motions right next to Arin. Like he was only flustered bc he did it in front of a camera which he totally forgot was there (‘You know when she just takes her clothes off and *grunts* only you are gonna see this’ like just fucking kill me)

Four, it implies that Danny does this on a regular and he doesnt mind doing it bc “only Arin is gonna see it anyway” like??? 👀👀👀

Five, Burrito Danny is real!!

Six, as @fucking-wecht mentioned, they have SO MUCH SPACE on that couch and they choose to be super close to each other like aaaaaa

Seven, Arin hair is fuckign long as hell and he has to keep swishing his head in order to get it out of his face.

Eight, Arin has cute thighs. Nothing new, but its nice to have constant reminders of how cute they are 👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾

Nine, they cuddle. Like thats it. I dont even care if they did it only for the facecam. They cuddle at the v end and its on camera and i love it.

Ten, they alternate between being super expressive (when danny laughs/when arin makes weird voices) and being completely deadpan (when Arin laughs/danny telling a story) and its so weird and adorable aaaa

I was also wondering why I couldn’t find Champ in the villagers list for acnl because I love him so much and then it hit me…

Obviously the same person monkey. I’ve two possible explanations for this, in no particular order of plausibility or preference.

  • His full name is “Champ Porter”, and when he’s at work, he likes to be addressed by his last name, since workplace relations are usually formal during business hours. The title of “Mister” (or “san” in Japanese), was implied.
  • Though he was born with the name “Porter”, his preferred nick is “Champ”, a name that he prefers to be identified by, and thus is more likely to respond to. However, during work, he’s forced to go by his birth name, as using nicks are seen as unprofessional, unless you have had your name legally changed, which he has not.

Ergo, irregardless of the reason why he goes by Champ in Wild World and City Folk where he was out of a job, most likely because he was laid off as a result of the decrease in popularity of traveling by train, which was costing the train company money due to decreasing ticket sales, he had no reason to go by Porter anymore. He went back to living life as plain ol’ “champ”, and themed his room after his old job at the train station, a dream job he’d loved for …I dunno, God knows how long he’s had this dream, or when the dream started. I’m not making up his life story, it’s only a theory. A game theory.

But when trains became popular again, which may or may not have been influenced by Kapp’n retiring as a cabbie/bus driver after getting married, having a child, and taking his hobby of boating back up, the train company offered Champ his job back, and long story short, he goes by Porter again.

Something I noticed: when everyone first walks into the basement we get a two page spread showing the basement in its entirety. If you look at the ceiling you can see what seems to be a lightbulb dangling from it. Not only that, but there's a cord running from the bulb across the ceiling to outside the room, implying that it's connected to some kind of power source. So not only do Grisha's people have photographs, but they also have electrical lighting!

It was super strange to me that the basement room was totally safe for an unexpected MP visit but an electric filament lightbulb was clearly visible dangling from the ceiling. Maybe Grisha had a ready explanation in case it was spotted. 

The fixture in the basement looks very much like a vintage industrial pendant light in a wire bulb cage.


I did some research about a year ago to try to establish what time period the walled world was set. The technology portrayed is remarkably consistent. Aside from the highly advanced 3DMG, torches and candles provide light, a printing press churns out newspapers, and horse-drawn carriages fill the streets. 

As evidenced by the hand pump in Carla’s kitchen and the water basins on display in various rooms, indoor plumbing is not yet available. This would place the technology in the 1740-1860′s range. If we factor in the appearance of canned herring at Castle Utgard, that pushes us toward the higher end of that estimate since commercial canning began in the 1820′s.

Photography was commercially introduced in the 1830′s. So while it’s unknown to the walled world, it actually isn’t that far ahead in terms of technology.

The real difference is electricity, which was common in homes in the 1930′s. I’ll add that indoor plumbing also became the norm at that time. If the warriors have both of those things, that would place their technology about 100 years ahead of the walled world.

(Interesting, huh? Since mankind has been in the walls for 100 years)

The Marauders (and Snape and Lily) as Star Wars characters AU…..

I’ve been on a random HP nostalgia kick recently so this was probably inevitable XD But hey, they grew up in the 70s so the first Star Wars would have actually been in theatres then?? (ignoring the time-travelling EU and prequel costumes, and any implied family relations!)

Some of these are a bit random – I was tossing up between making Peter be Anakin since he also literally loses an arm, but Snape and Anakin just have a lot of narrative parallels (a.k.a. Mr “tragic anti-hero/villain guy with a somewhat… intense… love for a childhood friend who makes the worst life decisions and destroys everyone they love but turns back from the Dark Side with much controversy”) … aaand my hand slipped. ¯\_(シ)_/¯

not to fuck you up or anything but i just did some pretty extensive research on olive trees and turns out they represent peace, immortality, commitment, hope, light, and fertility, among other things. also, an olive tree never dies, you can chop it down but as long as the base isn’t poisoned, it will grow again. so basically calvin was implying their immortal love for each other and by planting that tree he was signifying his commitment to her… i hate tayvin and their symbolic asses.

do u every feel the irresistible need to draw a character? because i do and i didn’t resist the urge to draw my sweet libra(人´∀`*)

also, thank you so much for the +200 followers and all the nice tags you people have been leaving on my art ;u; i had a lot of fun reading them!!

edit: fixed things i noticed after posting this 

PLEASE DO NOT REPOST/EDIT/USE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION

My favorite quote from Kubo was what he says near the very end, “this was a happy story. But it certainly could have been a lot happier.”
I just love that. It sums up how he feels about everything, despite the memories he now has and the stories he can share, he still has that grief and sorrow but he isn’t going to let it hold him down.
It also sums up the movie itself, showing that, yes, it’s a story about death, but it’s also just as much about life.
And that’s a quote that I would love to be able to use in one of my own stories; something that can sum up the main character’s thoughts on everything, that can sum up the whole story in a simple line, imply that there’s more to this than you may have previously thought, and I absolutely love that so much. It’s so powerful and perfect.
I love it.
