Naruto Characters Appreciation

Gather round brothers and sisters of the Naruto fandom, because this shit needs to be preached.
There are certain characters in this show that do not receive the love that they deserve and I’m here to share who I think needs some more admiration and a round of fucking applause. Note; down to personal preference, so please feel free to share yours.
Haku – This guy has such a beautiful concept of morality around him which is to be loyal to your friend, do anything for them; but the dark twist is that he is willing to get himself killed, being completely selfless and never regarding his own desires. Yet this is the touching part. His one desire, his dream is to be used by this friend. Considers him a master. But imagine that; being so devoted to someone that nothing else matters, and never feeling afraid because they make you feel at home. This character represents the selfless outlook on life, living to help others and find happiness in others happiness. This is why Haku is my favourite character. He also has a fucking cool mask.

Zabuza Momochi – What can I say? He’s gorgeous and was the first ever proper villain introduced to the show and manga. Sure there was Mizuki, but fuck him he was a pilot episode villain. But what’s more? Zabuza was a villain who redeemed himself. Maybe not completely, but he realised his faults and is just an over all nostalgic character. If that’s not enough to convince you – he has sharp teeth (fantastic for kinky biting during foreplay) and he’s great with kids. I can proudly admit that Zabuza is my number 1 anime crush. Ooooh how I wanna tear those bandages off and whisper “bite me stud muffin, biiiiiiteeee.”

Sai – He is a character that can change your views on how to live your life. In all seriousness, although he has no concept of “emotions” he is actually a very complex character and is my favourite character to write about. Constantly he asks questions to find out more about the world and its many different attributes and ways of living. I find him a fantastic character because he shows that juxtaposition between innocence and selfish people. Of course, Sai is no innocent guy. When he is introduced, he comments on Naruto’s balls right away (like damn, he is my spirit animal). However, he is brought into this world outside ROOT, having forgotten about emotions so he’s basically brand new to the whole human interaction thing beside doing missions. He is always so curious, asking questions based on the values of friendship and based off from the responses from those he asks, it really goes to show how much we take the small things in life for granted. Sai makes us realise the beauty in life, that the small things really are meaningful – we just need to cure our blindness to see them.

Ino Yamanaka – By far my favourite kunoichi if we exclude the older generation. Overall out of the women she is ranked 4th so pretty damn high. Most of the reason why I believe she needs more appreciation is because she is the Yang to Sai’s Yin. She was one of those who actually took time to talk to Sai and that’s why I called it from the start that they would end up together. With Ino’s way of living, being this very independent and outgoing girl, she would be perfect in teaching Sai emotions without coming across as well, a bitch. And may I emphasise her strength as a shinobi. During the war, she was informed that her father was going to die. She cried for less than a minute and then got over it with a snap of her fingers, proceeding onto a very important battle plan – connecting to the minds of the allied shinobi forces. Plus, we all love a scary mother. She scares Inojin with love <3 Note; Ino and Sai fucked. Can you imagine how romantic that would have been? Her coaxing him through it? *wiggles eyebrows*

Tsunade Senju & Mei Terumi – The reason I have put them together is because it’s for the same reasons. They are both just very empowering women, inspiring also. One of my favourite fights is the Five Kage vs. Madara Uchiha. Mei’s being all awesome with her lava (her voice is brilliant – that seductive charm) and Tsunade delivers a final blow – she fucking cracks Madara’s Susano'o. Not to mention they are both Kage and the first women to be Kage ever. Mei restores the Hidden Mist’s reputation from being the “Bloody Mist” (courtesy of Yagura – FUCKING OBITO YOU CUNT NUGGET) to an “Alright Mist” or whatever. Basically, she had to pick up the pieces left by some asshole (OBITO). And Tsunade, to me – the strongest of the sannin. She is also responsible for Sakura, Ino and Tenten becoming kick ass. Tenten wasn’t her apprentice but was initially inspired by her. Note; I love Obito, he’s my favourite character (joint with Haku). My poor onion baby~

Kisame Hoshigaki – His back story plays a major role in this. From the beginning he had been obeying rules, this strict code and always remained loyal to the mission. He killed his teammates (one whom he may have had feelings for) for the sake of the mission but the reason I admire him is because he never complains about how sad his life is. He killed is teammates like it was no fucking deal. Even the girl who possessed romantic feelings for him. Furthermore, though be it subtle, he represents discrimination that is present in the world we know of today. Because of his skin colour / origins, he is isolated more so in the Akatsuki. Every time I see him, I always get the vibe of how lonely he is and how he’s perhaps trying to fit into the world but it does not work – because of the cruel path he has chosen. To remain loyal to the mission, never let the code fall into enemy hands; and perhaps his constant discrimination and isolation is what made him choose this way of living. I got your back, Kisame. You will always have beautiful eyes to both Killer B and I.

Kakuzu – Right, I’m going to say it straight out. He’s fucking hot people. He has killer back muscle, arms that flex perfectly (imagine those arms being either side of your body UNF UNF, PIN ME TO THE WALL AND RAVISH MEEEEE) and he has a temper that a stereotypical love sick teen would feel like they could change. Can you imagine trying to calm that hot junk down? Okay, you may actually die before you could even try, but if you survive long enough to put your hands on his cheeks— Okay, back to why he needs to be appreciated more. His history was fucking cruel. He failed to assassinate the Hokage (baring in mind, he must of put up a pretty good fight to be able to walk away alive) and his reward for coming back alive, with intel on what Hashirama’s abilities are (that could be of great use for future plans)? Imprisonment and torture. What. The. Fuck. It actually makes me empathise with Kakuzu. His own village tortures him which should be what another village would do if they captured you so you can understand why he killed the village elders and left. Remember, he escaped from prison – so not only is he strong but intelligent. And fun fact; those tattoos around his wrists – shows how many times he’s been in prison. He is strong as fuck, immortal and has sexy stitches that could be great foreplay (*cough* tentaclepornwhat *cough*) Basically, I just want him to be my sugar daddy

Konan – Perhaps the most divine, serene and enchanting character. There are many religious connotations around her being an angel of death / judgement but her way of thinking it what intrigues me. She appears so monotone and unmoved by everything, all but a mask that covers up her tragic past. It gives me goosebumps just thinking about how after Nagato’s death, she ruled over Amegakure, guarding where Nagato’s and Yahiko’s bodies were and we actually see her smile as she looks up to the sky, thinking about the legacy both Nagato and Naruto have left behind. Konan fights Tobi with bravery and determination to protect their legacy and dreams. My favourite quote by her “I will be the pillar that supports their bridge of peace” and the rainbow appearing behind her was definitely one of the most memorable moments for me. To the very end, she fought Tobi, intending to bring an end to the evil he has caused – only to be strangled to death. The reason I find her death so tragic is because of how mundane it is. Many characters went out with a bang but Konan died from something that anyone could easily do, thus representing how there is no hope (at this point) at all of achieving peace and her fight was for nothing. A sad way for an angel to die

Kabuto Yakushi – Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t like this fucker. Dislike him a lot (although I sympathise with him). He needs appreciation because of how far he had come. His past was very sad, from the moment he entered the orphanage. This may sound evil, but I love seeing kid Kabuto cry. Because it’s so fucking cute. And those big glasses- awh, baby lemme hug you. And what ROOT had done was evil yet so clever with the photo manipulation and over all, Kabuto just did a lot of shit – trying to be someone he’s not and comes to the conclusion that being himself was all he ever needed to be. A moral that all of us must follow. Note; When I first saw Nun Kabuto, I wanted to laugh but then I was like “good for you, son.” and patted him on the back (of my laptop screen.)

So far, this is all I have. There are others that need appreciation, but those above are the ones that needed detail. Personally, I still feel characters such as Itachi and Sakura need more appreciation but maybe for another time. Feel free to add on your NCA’s (Naruto Characters Appreciation) and I’ll definitely check them out. Have a good day!

Snape Appreciation Month: Day #1 - General Snape Love

One of the reasons to love Severus Snape is pretty simple, on the whole. He is a good teacher (stay away, haters, I’m not talking about his class behaviour here - it’s in a more metaphorical sense), just not in the way most people realise, because his true lessons are about life. You can also learn from his mistakes, instead of making them on your own. This is what Severus Snape taught me:

#1 Life is not fair.

Repeated over and over again, to the point where there is no single person that hasn’t heard about it (or so I believe). It’s easy to go on a self-pity trip, it really is. What always keeps me in check is that quiet voice, drawling into my ear, “life is not fair, Ms. J.” Funny, you know, how it helps to realise that the whole world is not out to get me, and that there may be people who have it worse than me, so I’ve learnt to appreciate what I have. I still have it better than Severus ever did.

#2 Not everyone has to look like Mister/Miss Universum.

It’s actually refreshing to see a fictional character who doesn’t look like super handsome/pretty movies stars or models and it’s really cool when your favourite character is like that. Instead of feeling inadequate (because everyone must be pretty and prefect in fiction and real life), you (general you) may feel reassured that’s not the point. (Really, one of the things I love about Severus is his physical appearance. I also feel sorry for him because of his hair, because mine tends to look stringy shortly after washing if it’s longer. Plus, long or big or hooked noses are cool.)

#3 People go through a lot during their lives and some of them don’t turn out that well in the end.

If anything, Severus Snape, unlike what others try to push on me, taught me that in fact everyone struggles, some people just manage better than others. Getting over trauma is not about choice, but about support. And once again he made me appreciate what I have had and where I am now. He’s also opened my eyes to people who haven’t been as lucky as I am. And no, I don’t agree with every single thing that Severus does. Why would I? So, please, excuse me that I find the comfort in existence of a fictional character that didn’t turn out an angel in the end, but remained more human. I can see him struggle at times and this is something I can relate to.

#4 People aren’t just good or bad; they all are somewhere in-between.

Actually it’s kind of laughable to insist that everything is good or bad and nothing in-between, because humans tend be both at once. They are 100% capable of being cruel to some people and deeply caring of others. And Severus Snape is just like that. Neither do the good things erase the bad things he did, nor do the bad things erase the good things he did. (His reasons do not excuse his actions.) He’s just a complicated mix of things where some of his traits contradicts the others. He is a human. Plain and simple. If you don’t believe me that the world works like that, look around. Feel free to find me that one angel who’s never done anything wrong in their life.

#5 “Sometimes costs are made to be borne.”

You know, this one is Severus Snape’s actually, not mine. The hardest lesson in life to learn is that some decisions come with a high price. And sometimes you have to sacrifice something precious to you for the sake of achieving something better and bigger for somebody else. It’s really sad that so many readers can’t see that Severus Snape could have backed off Dumbledore’s plan and save himself. And yet he didn’t. He kept it up to the end, ultimately sacrificing himself. The very main reason why Harry calls him brave.

#6 What people say and what people do are two completely different things. 

It’s a curious thing that the very same people who insist that Severus Snape wanted to give Sirius to Dementors and didn’t care about the fact he was innocent, ignore the fact that Severus didn’t do that when he had a chance (not to mention he had no means to know about Sirius innocence at that time, but I digrees). Instead Severus collected the unconscious man, and even conjured a stretcher for him, and took him back to the castle where Sirius was safe from Dementors. Intentionally or not, he actually aided Sirius in his escape. If you dig deeper, I’m pretty sure there are more events like this in the books. No need to be a genius to see that happen in real life as well. Unless you close your eyes, that’s it.

Bonus:

#7 “Control your emotions.”

Severus’ again. Lose your head and you’ll lose everything. I think that Severus Snape knows the best how true the statement is, even though he doesn’t always manage to follow his own advice.

#8 No matter what you do, people will still find reasons to hate you.

Like you know, Severus Snape spent years spying for the Order and risking his life in the process and even turned himself into a villain for the sake of Dumbledore’s plan, but apparently all of these things make him selfish… okay… So, be yourself and make sure you won’t be ashamed of choices you’ve made, because people will find something to pick on anyway.


Well, I hope it’s general enough.

i still can’t believe that George Salazar, one of my favourite people and favourite voices in the world of Broadway (seriously just listen to his version of Light of the World) played Grover Underwood, one of my favourite characters of all time in a MUSICAL THEATRE (my FAVOURITE THING in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD) adaptation of a book series that meant the world to me growing up (& still means the world to me now) and the adaptation is actually really dang good (thank god after those shitty ass movies) the Gods are real and we have been Blessed™

kirkypet replied to your post “kirkypet replied to your photoset “itsboundtobetragic: You’re a…”

Alright, you’ve sold me. What else you got? :)

well, since you ask: The Expanse aka the best scifi series I have seen since Babylon 5 (Star Trek not counted because Trek is the BEST). Great actors, great world building and amazing special effects. Take a look at the intro:

And because it’s my favourite vampire novel: Kim Newman’s Anno Dracula. Actually, the whole series, but the first one is special to me because it takes place in Victorian times and it’s the era I know best of all the periods the novels are set in. Pretty much every single name mentioned in those novels is a character from fiction or someone from actual history. The books are fun even when you don’t get the references, but I always get a kick out of recognising the names (and I started reading this well pre-google). The starting point is the question: what if the fearless vampire hunters around van Helsing really, really messed up pretty early in the story?

Summary of Katherine Kelly’s interview on this morning
- I forgot about her Yorkshire accent it’s my favourite thing (she was my fave on coronation Street
-They showed a trailer, hopefully it might get a few people watching, it was far better than the trailers on the BBC you could actually tell it was a Dr who spinoff
-She says that Quill is her favourite character to date
-Her nan who is 82 is a big fan of class, she watches it with her friends
-Her baby is the cutest thing in the whole world
-Basically Katherine Kelly is a gift to our world and I love her

anonymous asked:

if you don't mind, why do you like the ancillary justice books? What should I expect if I tried them out?

OH HO HO, anon, what a can of worms you have opened

so i’m guessing you’re vaguely aware of the premise but for completion’s sake: the ancillary books are about breq. breq was originally justice of toren - a gigantic imperial troop carrier - or rather, justice of toren one esk nineteen. the ships and stations are run by sentient ai, and in order to facilitate this, they plug in human bodies - prisoners of war recently defrosted from cryosleep, usually - as walking, talking extensions of the ship. these are ancillaries. they are the ship - there’s no part of the original mind left - but they still have human needs and human emotional reactions.  only now breq, as she’s taken to calling herself, is alone, and possibly the only part of justice of toren left, and well outside of radchaii space.

the empire (it’s called the radch, members of it are radchaii, if you think ‘highly effective space romans’ you are not a million miles from the truth) has a long and illustrious history of fucking shit up and taking over the universe. something’s gone very badly, horribly wrong and breq is not sure what (although being a centuries old space ship means that she saw a lot of the events relevant to what’s going down right now). breq honestly doesn’t care that much right now. breq has a plan. breq is getting revenge.

that’s basically the point at which you enter the story.

now, why do i like them? partially because they’re a ticky-box list of all my favourite tropes, plus a whole bunch i didn’t know i had. human-centric military space opera hiding behind a veneer of hard sci-fi? check. weird alien designs? check (they’re not in it much yet, but it’s inevitable). stoic but unbelievably badass (probably) female main character? check. an excellent sense of humour? check. world building that seems amazingly cool and then when you think about it for more than two minutes you realise it’s actually horrific and awful? check

the books do a really great job, in my opinion, of balancing enough flashy cinematic action scenes (just enough, not too many) with some really technically brilliant exposition that appears to be timed exactly to hit all my buttons. i really like how important linguistics and anthropology are in the books.

the characters are great. the characters are so great.

furthermore, although there are definitely some pacing issues, particularly in the first book, leckie is a masterful prose stylist. these books are serious page turners and a joy to read. there’s a very noticible improvement between justice and sword, too, and i feel confident saying i think she’s going to keep get better. have you read the vorkosigan books by mcmasters bujold, anon? because that’s the nearest comparison i have to the sheer unmitigated joy of reading the ancillary books. they are so much fun

tl:dr - high-concept space opera, i literally did not put sword down until i’d finished it, and i grinned like a fool for probably 60% of it.
