actually this show is the best

I've enjoyed all of your Ravenclaw MBTI posts. Any chance you could do one for ISFJ Ravenclaws?

  • often get mistaken for hufflepuffs
  • the biggest procrastinators but have never handed in an assignment late
  • will end up doing the entire group project by themselves
  • ‘did you know there’s 142 staircases in hogwarts?’ ‘…..why do you even know that?’
  • take ‘your house will be like your family’ to new levels
  • seriously they just love their friends so fucking much
  • hate when people start debating because a. they don’t deal well with criticism and b. debates can quickly escalate to arguments
  • would actually use those homework diaries hermione bought 
  • often get frustrated with the lack of empathy a lot of ravenclaws show
  • find it really hard to settle in in first year
  • especially muggleborns because it’s just so different and they don’t really deal well with change at the best of times lol
  • they probably don’t know that many people outside of their house because they tend to make friends with people they see on a regular basis
  • will bring down a blanket for the people who fell asleep over their essay in the common room
asoue fancasting: part one

i originally fancasted all of the asoue books without really thinking about the tone of the series. after season one, i realised that what i needed was to look for actors and actresses who could fit in with the…to say the least, quirky tone of the show. i felt that some of the actors didn’t quite pull off the type of humour required (for example, despite being totally delighted with the choice of alfre woodard, i didn’t feel that she was totally the right fit).

with that in mind, i’ve started trying to get some fancasts together for some of the big players from season two. 

VICE PRINCIPAL NERO

kelsey grammer

probably best known for his extremely long standing comedy roles on cheers and frasier during the 1990s. i’m so devoted to this fancast it’s actually painful. he’s totally able to play a cartoonish villainous person - see his voicing of sideshow bob in the simpsons - and a lot of his characters are very self-absorbed and arrogant, which is perfect for nero. also, he’s got form with musical numbers.

larry david

if, for some unknown reason, someone casting for netflix doesn’t understand my bizarre obsession with kelsey grammer, larry david would be another good pick. his show curb your enthusiasm would be a good example of why. 

Isn’t it funny that every time I do an SU positive blog/post I need to deal with SU Crits and when I tell them to please stop they say things like “If you don’t wanna se criticism get out of the tag”?

Because its seems to be their main card and it’s getting tiring.

I mean what if all of the sudden someone (by someone i mean ton of people) started filling their tag with positive SU posts 24/7 non stop and being like “In this frame Pearl looks gorgerous in this particular shoot ERGO the show is flawless”? 

What about reblogging their posts complaining about the show saying things like “the writing/animation is getting better and if u cant accept that than idk what to tell u” (actual comment i got but with worse instead of best).

Of course at first is kind of easy to ignore but after constant bombing its getting tiring.

Honestly, after the way the Jekyll and Hyde thing ended, I really thought they would have to destroy or banish the EQ in some weird magical shenanigans. But the show actually did something clever, something I didn’t think they were capable of doing anymore. They saved Regina and the Evil Queen with love.

They remembered that hope is a powerful thing, and that Regina has had a lot of good personal growth. And they used it to create the best possible ending. Regina won’t go all evil again just because she has some of Queenie’s darkness in her, just because she still has that voice that tells her to hate herself and makes her lash out at the world. She’s stronger than that now. In return she gave her old self exactly what she needed. Acceptance. She looked her past in the eye, all the parts she wanted to physically cut out of her soul just a few weeks ago, and said “I love you.”

How many of us have that strength? How many of us need to do that for ourselves and haven’t figured out how to get there? How many people are struggling with hating themselves and wishing they could carve out the parts they don’t like?

That’s some powerful television. That’s what this show can do when it’s good. I’m filled with hope we can carry this through the rest of the season.

Can we get five words to describe the next story you're working on? Have you ever considered writing a novel? Legacy verse to me reads like one. If you ever do pursue it please let us know because i would love to be one of the first to buy your stuff. You have a talent for creating worlds and people you can connect with on such a deep level. Your original characters have stolen my heart.

“Legacy Verse Big Final Installment” is the working title.

Well, actually, the working titles of the documents in which it is taking shape are “Kitchen sink” and “Trashpile draft.” There are about 36k words in them, most of which won’t make it to a final draft, but it’s coming along.

I had to go show this ask to my best friend, like a big nerd, because I have always kinda wanted to publish original work. I’m not there yet, but it’s definitely on my mind. Thank you so much for the lovey encouragement!

Headcanons for how Revali realized he liked his (current) s/o? I love your blog sooooo much btw :)

Aww thank you bb!

-Mod Pinks

Realizing he likes s/o (Revali)

  • He actually starts off feeling rather grumpy towards them
  • They don’t really respond to his showing off, his boasting doesn’t particularly impress them, and despite being the best warrior of the Rito, they seem really ambivalent towards him.
  • One day he confronts them about this, wondering why they act like he isn’t worth their time.
    • S/o is hella confused, and explain that they like him just fine, just that they prefer his personality over his feats
  • Revali thinks things over, and realizes that the reason he gets grumpy towards them is because their opinion matters to him.
    • Add the fact that he now knows they like him for him, and well… he’s more than a bit flustered

Okay but I am seriously DYING for an episode that explores gender. Seriously.

Like, okay. What if we start out with Lars coming out as a trans guy? It would be best if it happens on purpose, maybe to the cool kids or something, some small group. Steven sees, and it gets Steven thinking about his own gender. He’s never really questioned it before, but now he’s wondering about how he’s part Rose (who he thinks is a woman) and such. So he goes to Garnet and sorta vents his confusion a bit. Garnet is surprised that Steven thinks Rose was a woman, and explains that gems are genderless. Amethyst shows up partway through and laughs about earth gender, talking about her wrestling persona and how she thought it was funny humans mistook her for a man, when “Clearly I’m *not*, why would I have to stick to silly human concepts like that!” Then Pearl and Connie come in, having just finished training. Once they understand the conversation, Pearl asks Connie for more details about the human concept of gender, since Connie is the only one there with a “normal” human upbringing. Connie explains and then complains about how ridiculous the whole concept is in the first place. She really seems very passionate about the subject, so Steven asks her if it’s been bothering her for a long time. After a bit of nervous nail-biting, Connie admits that she’s never really felt like a girl, but never had a way to explain it. She shyly admits that being part of Stevonnie is the closest she’s gotten to being comfortable with her body and pronouns (she felt their heart skip the first time someone called Stevonnie “they”). Garnet gives Connie a hug and asks, kindly, if she’d like for the gems to call Connie “they” pronouns for a while. Connie agrees, relieved and happy. Pearl asks if Connie enjoyed the flatter chest that Stevonnie has, Connie says they did. Pearl offers to find her some workout clothes that will flatten her chest more during practice without restricting their movements too much. Amethyst cheers for Connie and says if anyone has an issue with their gender/lack of gender, the Purple Puma will have something to say about it. Steven watches all this in awe, taking a little more time to comprehend everything just cuz this is all really new to him. He tells Connie he’ll do his best to understand and respect them while they work themself out, and says that if they ever want to fuse into Stevonnie again to help with dysphoria, he’ll be happy to help. Connie happy-cries and gets hugs from everyone. They aren’t brave enough to come out to their parents yet, but for now, they have a group of supportive friends to help them while they explore their gender freely for the first time. The episode closes with Steven saying Connie should ask Lars where he gets his binders.

Favorite early birthday surprise, and it’s difficult to surprise me, I have good hearing and an ability to eavesdrop when I don’t intend to. Beginning of this week was my boyfriend was “Damn it, Baby. The theater is full for a Sunday showing of Beauty and the Beast.” Well, little did I know, he told a little fib for the sake of a surprise. He and my nonni (grandma) together finagled enough money to reserve an entire row for themselves, me, and our close friends.

Then had an early birthday lunch. I had some yummy quinoa and shrimp with a descant pizza cookie a la mode with in house vanilla ice cream and a long island iced tea. I have the best boyfriend and nonni ever, guys.

The only way my actual birthday could get any better is Oliver and Dragon Lady break up in 518, which airs on my actual birthday. Such a fun day.

XOXO,

Power Rangers Review

Annd here we go with spoilers, rambles, and not really a dedicated fan who never watched every power ranger show there ever was. #sorrynotsorry the only power ranger show I ever watched and actually enjoyed was (2008) Dino thunder it was the best even though it had only thirty-eight episodes :( anyway I’m not going to talk about the past unlike most reviews I’ve been reading which is horse shit because who actually wants to hear how the new is stupid the old is better, like let the new generation like this movie!

-the entire movie was funny, realistic in a teenage life, feels were felt, I felt connected to all five of them which was amazing
-why have five? It’s such a odd number, I dislike odd numbers makes me very ocd about it.
-Elizabeth banks was fantastic playing the villain I love all of her movies she’s in and this movie made me love her even more.
-Billy is officially the fandom child and nobody can change that fact, it was amazing to finally have a hero with real life disabilities that don’t magically go away. (I’m black, no your not) 😂😂
-there were so many references for nerdy stuff and little stuff that made me laugh the bumble bee comment was fantastic, I squealed like a fangirl I am.
-there morphing wasn’t right away which created a better slow building movie, I really appreciated that the group had to open up to ones another before morphing.
-the costumes are WAY BETTER THEN THE ORIGINAL yes I will always recognize the 1990’s morphing costumes, but these are designed and equipped better, more up to date. I swooned for Red Ranger and Pink ranger the colors are oh so pretty.
-I just realized this movie was two hours long, it felt like thirty minutes, it didn’t drag, didn’t move slow, just right. Idk why it felt that way.
-incorporating the originals go, go power rangers song was epic, I laughed, cheered, and sang along like there’s my childhood.
-I thought for a moment that zordon would turn evil which was very scary to think about
-crisply donuts nuff said
-the pit LOL anything to do with the pit was mentioned I was laughing
-Jason slapping the emo kid in the beginning was hilarious but him slapping rita’s ass into space in the end I was crying from the laughter.
-ooooohhhh after morphing and using their dino things (I forgot what they’re called) and then morphing them together and trying to walk only to land flat on their faces was priceless.
-overall I enjoyed the movie, I think that the new generation will like and maybe get people to watch the old tv shows and appreciate them more.
-question; what would you rate the movie (bff asking) 5.5 stars…..out of ten I think? Maybe. Or is a six? Idk man don’t ask me to do this…it was good but beauty and the beast has stolen my heart for this years movie so far, I’m still on batb cloud nine lol

Page XXIII My Thoughts

I LOVED this episode!!!! I started crying when the mirror showed Regina as the person she hated most and didn’t stop until it was over. I was sooooooo proud of Regina. I thought this episode really showed her full redemption. Regina chose love over hate. She realized that love and hope are strength not weakness. Her love for Henry, her Robin, and her friends made her strong enough enough to not only redeem herself, but the EQ as well. Her redemption came full circle. I thought it was quite beautiful actually. And I’m not at all upset about the EQ getting her happy ending with ww Robin. I think with Regina’s actions that this was the best way to tie up her storyline since she used the shears and reintegration wasn’t possible.

The CS scene was heartbreaking!!!! I’m so glad that Emma found out the truth, but not the way she found out. And Killian’s anguish was brilliantly portrayed. Not that we expected anything less! And as we all knew Emma was upset that he didn’t trust her and come to her instead of hiding it and trying to burn his memories. Not about the action itself. And giving him the ring back and pushing him away until he found that man again is exactly what she needed to do. It was exactly what HE needed in order to, I believe, find that man again and FINALLY forgive himself. And NEMO!!!! The father that Killian never had. Such beautiful scenes between them!

I thought this was an absolutely BRILLIANT episode and it was brilliantly played by Colin, Lana, and Jen.

This is my first time writing down my thoughts like this about an episode, so if you disagree, that’s fine. Just please be respectful of my thoughts and impressions.

Toxic

don’t expect too much from people
some can pretend to love you
when they’re actually in search of something else
they’ll do their best to turn the tables
but you have to be smart enough and
strong enough to not let them
you have to show them they’re wrong
and they’ll put up a fight
but you have to know what’s good for you
when they’re aren’t anymore

Neon Genesis Evangelion is actually a really interesting and groundbreaking show. While I would say it definitely hasn't aged as well as other shows I can definitely claim it's a visceral emotional journey. It's better described as one man basically using an animation studio to vent his depression and suffering and I feel keeping this fact in mind is the best way to watch the show. I love the interesting designs of the mecha because it doesn't really make sense why they'd be so humanoid...

yeah but i was recommending gundam thunderbolt cause i like it a lot………………………..

Ok Ken (and David). As much as I hate to make you guys famous or even respond to you directly. We all die one day and you're old so fuck it. Yea yea my 2013 performance at the Grammys was absolute shit. Technical difficulties, blah blah. Thanks for the reminder. Very much appreciated. Fuck that performance though. You think that's why I kept my work out of the Grammy process this year? Don't you think I would've wanted to play the show to 'redeem' myself if I felt that way? In reality, I actually wanted to participate in honoring Prince on the show but then I figured my best tribute to that man's legacy would be to continue to be myself out here and to be successful. Winning a TV award doesn't christen me successful. It took me some time to learn that. I bought all my masters back last year in the prime of my career, that's successful. Blonde sold a million plus without a label, that's successful. I am young, black, gifted and independent.. that's my tribute. I've actually been tuning into CBS around this time of year for a while to see who gets the top honor and you know what's really not 'great TV' guys? 1989 getting album of the year over To Pimp A Butterfly. Hands down one of the most 'faulty' TV moments I've seen. Believe the people. Believe the ones who'd rather watch select performances from your program on YouTube the day after because your show puts them to sleep. Use the old gramophone to actually listen bro, I'm one of the best alive. And if you're up for a discussion about the cultural bias and general nerve damage the show you produce suffers from then I'm all for it. Have a good night.

the best part about friends is that it had the most iconic twist in romance ever like in the beginning seasons they really played us with the ross/rachel dynamic and how they were the absolute “it” couple of the show and that everyone will want to root for them to get together and then all the sudden???? chandler and monica literally come out of nowhere in a span of three episodes?? but the best part is,,,,,,,they actually have a great dynamic?? like they had a great dynamic as friends but as a couple,,,,,they brought out the absolute best in each other??? And they grew slowly and worked through both of their insecurities and became an even stronger couple?? and then the writers tried to bring back rachel/ross again and it just,,,,,,didn’t compare because chandler and monica had surpassed their trash dynamic by 1000x at that point. anyway, god bless chandler and monica

can you believe we got to see alex danvers come out multiple times?? in different places and to different reactions??

straights™ always think you only come out once but it actually happens so many times and and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a show where we actually got to see a character come out to family and friends and coworkers and i still think supergirl has the best coming out story arc in history of television

Oh, he’s no stranger, we’ve met before, once upon a dream.

goodbye, forever, i literally can’t believe this happened,,,,

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo is one of the best kdrama of all time and it continues to be overlooked as hell. It doesn’t even rank top 20 in Korea despite having one of the most well-written, organically developed plot AND characters for a kdrama. This is the first kdrama I’ve ever seen where they actually show a healthy, supportive relationship between the main leads without using over-exaggerated storylines to drive the romance. Also it’s one of the few Korean dramas that actually talks about mental health issues without downplaying it or use it as a plot device for ratings. I honestly love this drama so much and it deserves so much more love. It’s so fluffy and fun but also serious and relatable when it’s important. 

Thoughts on YOI winning the “Best Animation”Award

Animation is about creating an illusion of movement by quickly playing multiple successive pictures together, and in this way, bringing a story to life.

Clearly, the Yuri!!! on ICE artwork during some of the latter skate scenes was not the quality we’d expect from a “best animation”-nominated show, but the attention to detail and actual animation during most of the scenes was quite evident? The YOI staff hired multiple choreographers and ice skating professionals so that they could get even the smallest details like sound, color, and positioning right. 

Here’s an example of the attention to detail, as shown by not only the leg movement but also the ice movement:

Handpicking and comparing sub-par YOI screencaps to the best screencaps from another show is honestly quite unfair, as animation is not about a single picture. It is about playing multiple slightly-varied successive images quickly to create an appearance of movement. 

To better argue my point, just looking at the following picture is not equivalent to evaluating YOI’s animation.

Even looking at this screenshot, which is clearly nicer than the prior one, is not a sufficient method of evaluating YOI’s animation

The following gif, however, is an example of animation:

It follows the term’s literal and common definition.

Let’s be clear. I’m not saying that YOI should have won the “best animation” category, as plenty of other nominees could have arguably taken its spot. I’m simply asking people to look at the show’s animation as a whole, rather than at a few screenshots taken on their phones.
