all my favorite ships got something!

Astra inclinant, sed non obligant

A short sci-fi story written for @caffeinewitchcraft’s Caffeine Challenge #12. My brain took the prompts and veered off a bit, but this was fun to write! The title means “The stars incline us, but do not bind us.”




I was born on the Saratoga, a class 2 transport running supplies between the consolidated colonies of the outer ring planets. It’s down in the records as the middle day of seven in a Night cycle as we drifted between suns, all lights on emergency use only until we could make it in range of the next system to recharge the auxiliary batteries. Mom always said that Night stretched so long because I was hoarding all the light for myself, so I could burst to life as five pounds six ounces of screaming starfire. She said she knew I’d be fine out here in the black, that she knew I could make my life here and be happy without a sun and a planet because even from that very first moment she could see the light in my eyes; a true spacer, whose inner fire keeps them warm even in the darkest times.

I never had the heart to tell her she was wrong.


My defection started like this: I was seven sol-years old and setting foot on a planet for the first time. Gravity dragged at me. My feet and hands felt heavy, my head hurt. The floor seemed to roll out in front of me, curving and bucking when I tried to walk. I fell more than a few times, and my mother tried to get me to go back to the shuttle, but I refused. Everyone else in my class had been planetside, even Monica and Neil, both two years younger than me, and I was determined to have my turn.

One of the station attendants gave me a pair of crutches and I gritted my teeth and kept going, one shaky step at a time, until I was through the doors and really, really in-atmosphere for the first time in my life.

The heat of the sun felt like a caress over my hair. The breeze tugging at my shipsuit was a revelation. There were sounds I’d never heard before, smells I’d never dreamt of, more colors than I’d ever thought possible. Actual living animals flew above me. Vibrant green plants pushed between cracks in the stone path, utterly unplanned-for.

It was too much. I cried. I screamed. I curled in a ball on the ground—real, solid ground!–and bawled my tiny heart out while the sun beat on my neck, and I refused to move no matter how my shipmates coaxed and pulled and scolded. Mom always said after it was some kind of sign, that it was proof I knew I belonged in space, even that young. The rest of the adults laughed about it for years. They’d muss my hair affectionately whenever it came up at a party, or a holiday, or a community hearing, or a graduation ceremony, and say things like That’s our Astra, and A born shiprat, you are.

I wasn’t allowed off-ship again for a decade.

My favorite WoY ships

My favorite Wander over Yonder ship is:

The Skull Ship!

What’s not to like about this ship? It’s huge! And it got everything you need plus lots of extras! A main foyer, a food Court, a whole prison level, Lord Hater’s bedroom, Commander Peeper’s bedroom, the Watchdog’s sleeping bay, conference rooms, 9 smooching rooms and a whole lot of other rooms and halls. Oh and I almost forgot about the tongue-like platform. I can’t stop thinking about what a great slide it’ll be.

My second favorite Wander over Yonder ship is:

Lord Dominators ship!

What not to like about this mix of an Imperial Star Destroyer and Emperor Zurg’s helmet that can turn into a giant robot? I’m sad that it got destroyed in The End of the Galaxy, but I hope it’ll be rebuilt for season 3.

My third favorite Wander over Yonder ship is:

Yup it’s a tie between this pirate ship and the Orbble Juice Bubble!

We don’t know anything about this pirate ship other than what it looks like. Is it from the past or is it… from the future? I like to think that it’s a part of the future that it’s the “evolved” form of the Orbble Juice Bubble and that we’ll see more of it in season 3.

The Orbble Juice Bubble… Well some may not call it a ship and it’s not in the traditional form, but it’s so much like a ship that I call it a ship; after all it gets you from planet A to planet B. It’s very compact and practical when you don’t need it and as big as you need it to be, when you need it.

What is it you say?! Have I missed something?! Have I misunderstood something?! It’s ships! Oh so these are the wrong kind of ships.

Well I support all ships as long as both parts are okay with it, that both are over the legal age and aren’t siblings.

So you’ve got no favorite ship?

Okay if you put a knife to my throat, then I do have two favorite ships and they are:

Lord Dominator and Lord Hater! Like Wander I ship Lord Dominator and Lord Hater even thought I fear that it’ll first happen when two mice and two ducks gets married or do you have plans for that @disneyanimation? I think not!

What about the second one?

Well it’s just a pathetic one.

Just tell it already!

Okay, okay I ship one of my charterers with Wander.

Please sign this petition to ask @disneyxd to give Wander over Yonder the proper end that @crackmccraigen had planed: https://www.change.org/p/walt-disney-encourage-disney-to-make-wander-over-yonder-season-3

banasiakj123  asked:

What are your all time favorite Lucaya moments from the show and why?

I got this and another ask which said:

“I loved your answer to that last ask. You probably don’t ship lucas and maya as much as riley and farkle, but did you have any favorite moments from them?”

So… let’s get it!

Edit: The more I write about these moments, the more I realize how many Lucas and Maya moments there actually were, and how tough it is to choose between them all. 

My favourite Lucaya moments would look something like this:

5. Girl Meets World (The Pilot)

If you had told me that the first episode would be a roadmap for Lucas and Maya’s relationship, I wouldn’t have believed you. But, their whole interaction on the subway and their bantering in the classroom really made me enjoy what was to come of their relationship. I think that in hindsight, it was a really intelligent way to plan out not only their relationship, but the execution of it. 

4. Girl Meets Rules

This episode had me cracking up! Arguably, the “flirtiest” moment on the show, bar none. 

“You don’t seem like a ‘mad dog’ to me…”

“Well what do I seem like to you?”

Come onnnn! This was when Lucas and Maya were starting to pick up steam and they were beginning to really hint that they would be something more than just friends and I was about it. 

3. Girl Meets the New Year

This scene always gets me. 

“Hey Lucas, have I ever said anything nice to you?”

“No.”

“Well… it’s one minute to midnight, and I’m glad you’re standing here.”

“Wow, that kinda makes up for everything.”

Okay, let’s take a look at this, and analyze why I really love this scene. Maya was at the height of her growth in this episode. She had been able to forgive herself for her father leaving, she was really starting to understand why hope isn’t for suckers, and the boy who she “wasn’t supposed to like” had really started to grow on her. So, at this point, she chose herself. Instead of putting everyone else in her life before her, she chose herself for once. And think what you may about Lucas and Maya, you can’t ignore the fact that in this moment, Lucas made Maya very happy, and vice versa. 

What also really gets me about this scene is the fact that this girl roasted and I mean ROASTED this guy for two years, and all she has to say is “I’m glad you’re standing here” and he’s cool? Come on now. Even if he may not have been cool with everything, it still displays how much the boy cared for her and apparently, what she thought of him as well. Love this scene. 

2. Girl Meets Texas Pt. 2

The campfire scene. Do I really have to say more about this? I mean it’s pretty self-explanatory but let’s dig in a little bit. The whole scene was very interesting, and I really had to scratch my head whenever I saw anyone say things like “Maya stole Riley’s man!” or “Maya is a snake for having feelings for Lucas!” when it did not go like that at all. 

This girl was not about these feelings… at least at the beginning she wasn’t.

For all intents and purposes, she was willing to go down with those feelings. Maya knew how complicated things would get, and she had already been trying to actively avoid that conversation as Riley asked her TWICE if she learned anything from being her (i.e. Girl Meets Yearbook). So, when Riley outed her feelings and Maya was left there with Lucas, she did what she always does, she falls back on her jokes and pushing people away. But, Lucas wasn’t having any of that. 

And then there’s the almost kiss. 

Now a lot of people were harping on Lucas for asking Maya not to tell Riley and not “properly dealing with these feelings”, but as I’ve stated earlier, it wasn’t that simple. Up until this episode, this boy wasn’t even 100% sure that Maya liked him. And along with the fact that Maya wasn’t even planning on talking to him because of his actions with Tombstone, I think his initial reaction can be forgiven. Anyways, the whole episode was great. Especially the whole Tombstone situation. I think for the Maya/Lucas/Riley triangle, it was one of the biggest spot-the-difference moments between Riley and Maya. Both of the girls care for Lucas a great deal, but their reactions really showed where they were at. Maya was scared for Lucas’ life and didn’t think he needed to ride this bull to prove that he wasn’t a disgrace, while Riley thought it would be good for him to ride the bull so he could make Pappy Joe proud. 

Anyways, let me move on to the #1 because that’s going to be long, lol. 

1. Yearbook/Creativity/Upstate/A Christmas Maya/Goodbye

So, I know I put a lot of episodes here, but bear with me here. A while back, I said that I would do a Lucaya analysis, but with everything that happened with the show I haven’t really gotten around to doing it. It’s still in my drafts, and I will get around to it eventually, but for now I’ll just try and summarize the main points I wanted to get across, hence the long list of episodes.

But, without further ado, let’s get into it. 

@cowboyandshortstack​ made a great post explaining why Lucas made the right choice in Girl Meets Upstate and how these kids SHOULD have gone about dealing with the triangle in the right way. I’ll link it HERE and I’m just going to elaborate a little bit because it’s really going to help me make my main point about why I love all these episodes and how they set up Lucas and Maya. 

In Yearbook, Lucas says something very important in regards to self-identity:

“But I do know that if you let someone say who you are, then you really won’t be who you are, and you certainly won’t end up being who you were meant to be.” (And while there was a lot more in Yearbook, this is what really stuck out to me).

The reason why I’m including this is because the concept of “who you are” is more or less Maya’s entire growth arc from this episode up until the end of season three. There was a lot of things that were said and insinuated (mostly by Riley) in regards to who Maya was and who she was meant to be. And as a result of this, Maya, Riley, and pretty much the rest of the core six regress (with the exception of Farkle). I find it very interesting that they made Yearbook right before Creativity because in Creativity, Lucas had this to say about Maya:

Lucas: Well, I don’t want that for Maya. I want Maya to be happy. 

Maya: Thank you, Lucas. But it’s just an art class. 

Lucas: I feel bad. They’re taking away something you’re very good at. 

Maya: You’ve never said that to me before. 

Lucas: I’ve said it. 

Maya: Yeah, but not, like straight to my face when you were looking at me. I can’t remember you actually l– 

Lucas: You’re a great artist, Maya. 

Lucas: You have a real talent. And I want you to be able to get better and share it with people. 

Zay: Now they’re just lookin’ at each other and not sayin’ nothin’. Are they saying anything? No? Well, I wonder that they’re thinkin’. 

Lucas: I don’t want them to take away your art class, Maya.

So, why is this scene part of my favourite Lucaya scenes? Well for one, Lucas makes a grand show of letting Maya and the rest of the class know that he: wants her to be happy, thinks she’s a great artist, she has a real talent, AND doesn’t want them to take away HER art class. This is all coming from the boy who supposedly “is most likely to be okay with whatever happens”. If we contrast this with his reaction to Riley being bullied in Girl Meets Rileytown, it’s a very big spot-the-difference moment. 

And while the situations were both serious for different reasons, it was Lucas’ reactions to both situations that really stand out. I’m not trying to say that Lucas wasn’t upset that Riley was getting bullied, he was. But, when Riley thew the ice cream in Maya’s face and stormed off, Lucas went to check on Maya… not Riley. Meanwhile, it was Farkle who even figured out that Riley was being bullied in the first place (no surprise there). 

But, let’s move on. 

Girl Meets Upstate is probably my favourite episode out of all of these that I’m writing about because it really showed Lucas having a greater understanding of Maya than we initially thought. 

Here’s what Lucas says to Ms. Hart in regards to Maya:

Lucas: You know, Maya loves to make fun of me. In Texas, she doesn’t wanna see me get hurt. She gets those feelings from someone, Ms Hart. And from what I’ve heard, it’s not her father. You are a wonderful mother.

And after Topanga humorously asks Lucas to even it up (i.e. What about me, Chuckie?) he runs off to the bay window where he does what he should have done all along:

Eric: Listen to your heart. Your heart is what’s going to tell you what to do. And then go find your favourite quiet place. 

Like @cowboyandshortstack had said in her post: 

BUT, Lucas DID do this to make his decision in Upstate, which is paralleled pretty closely to Topanga making her decision in Goodbye. Except with one crucial difference.

Topanga gets to say what her decision is. Lucas doesn’t. Lucas lets Maya talk him out of his decision (which is presumably her given the rest of the context of the episode) before he even has a chance to say it.

Basically, Lucas did the right thing in Upstate to make the right decision. He gets talked out of it (it being choosing Maya) and, as a result, ends up choosing Riley (the wrong decision) in Ski Lodge.

What’s interesting about this entire situation is that I’m speculating (because I don’t think we’ll ever know for sure) that Maya knew Lucas was going to choose her, and she wanted to make Riley happy, so she backed off. Lucas wanted to make Maya happy, so he didn’t push the issue. But, just imagine being Lucas in that situation. You have taken roughly a year to figure out which one of these amazing girls you want to be with. 

After much thought and drama, you finally come to a decision… only to be dismissed because the girl who you were going to choose claims she wasn’t “her” (even though you had spend the past couple of days reaffirming who she was). And on top of all that, you choose to accept it, because you just want her to be happy. 

Say what you want about Lucas, I’ll probably agree with you. BUT, you can’t tell me that sidelining feelings he took about a year to figure out was “easy”. And that’s why I love Upstate. It really shows the selflessness of both Lucas and Maya, who once again are putting others before themselves. 

And finally… A Christmas Maya. 

Most of you are probably wondering why I would put this episode on the list because Lucas was not even in the episode. And to that comment, I would tell you to pay attention to what the focus of this episode is. We learn in this episode that Maya’s mom had done everything she could to make sure that Maya would have a good upbringing. As we all know, the Hart’s are not the wealthiest, and when Maya was young she didn’t see how much her mom had done for her. But, in A Christmas Maya, we see that while Ms. Hart didn’t have much to give, she gave Maya the most important thing she has - her friends. 

So, what does this have to do with Lucas? Not much really… except for:

Lucas: You know, Maya loves to make fun of me. In Texas, she doesn’t wanna see me get hurt. She gets those feelings from someone, Ms Hart. And from what I’ve heard, it’s not her father. You are a wonderful mother.

Lucas, who had barely spoken to Ms. Hart throughout the series was able to deduce that Maya gets her capacity to care for others and to be selfless… from her mother. Looking back on it, the conversation Lucas has with Ms. Hart and the conversation Maya has with her mom have nothing in common… except for the fact that they both appreciate everything Ms. Hart has done for Maya. 

I have to repeat this. This boy… who was written to be somewhat aloof, has the ability to deduce, quite accurately might I add, how much Maya’s mom has done for her and how important that is, to me is the cherry on top. I think the most important ‘spot-the-difference’ moment between Maya and Lucas and Maya and Riley comes down to how he interacts with them. Lucas is to Maya what Farkle is to Riley and I don’t really think much else needs to be said. The only difference between Farkle and Riley and Lucas and Maya is that Maya and Lucas were involved in a triangle and Riley and Farkle weren’t. 

Anyways, I know I rambled for a while, so let me see if I can bring this all together for y’all:

In Yearbook, we learned the importance of being “who you are” and not letting anyone tell you otherwise. Lucas really drives this point home in the episode. 

In Creativity, we learn that Lucas has been paying attention to Maya, who was quite shocked at that realization, and he remind Maya who she is and why her art is important - because it makes her happy, she is a great artist, and she has a talent which she should share with others. Unfortunately, because we never got to see the season four come to fruition, we never got to see Maya’s artistic talents develop. However, we do get confirmation in Bay Window that Future Maya does pursue her artistic talents, so it can be inferred that Lucas wasn’t too far off the mark. This episode once again shows Lucas having a greater understanding of Maya than we initially perceived, and even sometimes has a better understanding of Maya then Riley does. 

In Upstate, we see Lucas giving Ms. Hart a very positive affirmation that she IS in fact a wonderful mother and that she played a pivotal role in developing Maya’s sensitivities. Again, just like Yearbook and Creativity, the focus is on who Maya is and what are the influencing factors behind that. 

In A Christmas Maya, we see Ms. Hart and Maya confirm what Lucas had stated in Upstate - Ms. Hart is a wonderful mother who gave Maya the opportunity to meet Riley and Farkle, which led to her meeting Lucas, Zay and Smackle. 

In Goodbye, we see the contrast between how Topanga handled her decision versus how Lucas handled his, and what that shows about who HE is. While he went about it the right way, and was prepared to announce his decision, when it was revealed that Maya was having a bit of an identity crisis, he put his feelings on the back burner so she could figure the out. Ultimately, it was really just a chance to offer these characters much needed growth and development. 

The theme of “who you are” and how that tied into Lucas and Maya is what connected these episodes. That is ultimately my thesis here - Lucas and Maya have an understanding of one another that had it not been bogged down by the triangle would have rivalled Riley and Farkle, in my opinion. Anyways, that’s about it!

Longest answer to an ask ever!

But before I wrap this up, I’ll give a list of other important Lucaya episodes that I can remember off the dome:

Girl Meets TSOL

Girl Meets Belief 

Girl Meets Texas Pt. 3

Girl Meets the New Year

Girl Meets Bay Window

Girl Meets Legacy

Girl Meets H.S. Pt. 1 & 2

Girl Meets Triangle

Girl Meets True Maya

Girl Meets Ski Lodge Pt. 1 & 2

Girl Meets Sweet 16

Well… that about does it! Let me know what y’all think!

Four Seasons. We got four seasons of “maybe one day”. This ship, was one of my 1st, definitely the one that I was a hardcore shipper on. Heck, my old username on here said how much I loved them. Their banter from season one will always be my favorite. All the undercover operations each of their own definitely need to be remembered. The kiss from 2x11? Yeah I screamed… And cried. And may we never forget “S, P, A or G?” There are so many things that I could mention. The little looks, the constant flirtation and then something happened when Season Three came around and the characters became someone different, and not the couple I shipped. But regardless, this ship will always be a favorite and I just want to say Thank You to Jesse and Sophia for Four seasons of Linstead ❤ This couple is the reason I became a writer, the countless hours I spent writing fan fiction and stressing out or coming up with new ideas will always hold meaning. I’m sorry Linstead. I’m sorry you became a casualty because of the writers but you will always have a place in this fangirls heart.

anonymous asked:

looks like ijyuuin is happening, did you see the latest junjou mix spoilers? ijuuin commented that yuu was another small light he found aside from misaki, not only that but they're already acting like a couple. ijuuin gave yuu a copy of his house key! there was so much blushing, laughing, implications, and glances that there's absolutely no doubt that they'll end up together... maybe shizuku was just a fan after all?

Originally posted by imaginationeer

I read some things. I think it was a post with some sort of bulleting, but I really didn’t read it. I’m kinda trying to stand by till I read the whole thing because it has happened that when I read spoilers, I got salty over stuff, and then when I read the real thing I felt differently. I wasn’t thrilled about getting another Sentiment chapter, but hey, I’m not the only reader here, and I’m glad to see that those who like Ijuuin and Yuu will finally be getting something more than a little fan service. 

Having said that *clears throat*: Ijuuin and Yuu can date for all I care. 

(Seriously. They’re like, my least favorite characters from both series. I don’t hate them, but I’m totally meh about them. Even Tama and Haitani rank higher.)

I’d rather see Yuu with Chiaki for obvious reasons (*coughs*I’ve got another ship for Hatori*coughs*) but I totally understand that Chiaki doesn’t love Yuu that way (whatever that means), so since that ship won’t be happening, I’ve moved on. 

Yuu obviously admires Ijuuin. I didn’t think he was into guys in general. I thought he just liked Chiaki. And I also thought Ijuuin was Misaki-sexual…

… but perhaps that was the moment when he sort of acknowledged himself as bi. Though the whole “little light” thing was interesting to read, and since what he’d like is the “slice of life” thing more than a body…

… he’ll probably fall for Yuu because flirty bantering is a plus with him. 

Or maybe he’s attracted to those who are attracted to him? Like, he treats his fans dearly and he’s aware of their love for him and his work. So maybe that’s a factor. 

Perhaps that’s the reason why Shizukui isn’t an option - their lines are clear: Shizukuishi won’t become the fan that turns to him with stars in his eyes or a smile on his lips. 

He’s there to help Ijuuin with his work and make his burden lighter, since Kirishima is obviously there to work him to the bone. Shizuku understands how important it is for someone with a mind like Ijuuin’s to keep focused and not get discouraged. He’s some kind of great support for Ijuuin, but sadly, as much as I like Shizukui (I have a thing for majime-type characters), it’s not enough, because Ijuuin needs to have a little fun. Yuu seems to be the cheeky kind of character that can give him that. 

So maybe they’ll become one more couple. We’ll probably get at least one more chapter with them, because they’ve got to do the deed, you know? No squelch-ah-thrust-ha-splurt = no couple. (That was kinda graphic. Sorry.) And then they’ll probably be received by the other couples who seem to have been abandoned.  

The house key thing is a standard thing for repeated deadline-break offenders, I assume. Aikawa has Usagi’s, and Hatori had Chiaki’s even before dating. (Mino doesn’t need keys - he breaks in with his Xacto knife at 3 in the morning.)

TL;DR version:

* Yeah, Ijuuin and Yuu will probably become an item.

* Shizukui is too good for anybody, really. Look at him. Come on, he’s gorgeous. He’s got a seme look, though. Shizuuin could be real, but Ijuuin playin’.

Thanks for stopping by!

The utter cult-like feeling I get whenever I scroll through any anti’s blog makes me so uncomfortable

Like they can be so aggressive about their stance and I get it but at the same time it’s so ‘you’re either with us or you’re a no good dirty scum-bag’ with like virtual pitchforks and torches and honestly it scares me

Imagine being an impressionable young teen, hell even an older teen, and there’s this person/group that tells you you’re a horrible person if you don’t join their side and believe in the same rhetoric they do down to the finest of print. It’s scary! I remember joining fandom related things so early on in my life, like when I was 10/11. I knew nothing and had to learn based on what I saw and who I interacted with. As I learned my way around I distinctly remember holding strong feelings against 2 very specific ships from different fandoms. I despised them, I even got into arguments with my family over the fact that they shipped it. I remember wearing the ‘anti’ label so proudly and honestly? I look back and I realize how stupid and immature I was. I remember feeling all high and mighty cuz I wasn’t a dirty shipper. Now? Those ships still aren’t my favorite but I don’t mind them, I don’t care anymore if someone ships it, they see something I don’t and I’m not gonna attack them for it anymore and I regret that I had in the past.

I wish someone had told me when I was younger to think for myself and not immediately jump to conclusions. So here’s some advice I learned the hard way. Try to fully understand a situation in a way you are comfortable with, discourse is prevalent in any fandom and nothing good comes from the extremes yelling over each other and you picking a side in panic to order to fit in with the fandom. You don’t need to take sides, not everything is in black or white, many discussions have multiple sides and perspectives to it and it’s best to explore as many as you can and then make a decision on where you stand based on what you learn. Don’t send hate, you may be passionate about the issue but that doesn’t mean you should send hate or harass that person (there’s a reason why Tumblr has a block function). Most importantly, do what makes you comfortable and interact with the people/things that you are comfortable interacting with.

Kidstorm ship meme 1, 8, 11, 13 and 19

Hey anon. Thanks for the brilliant ask. Kidstorm is one of my favorite DC ships, just so you know :) I’m sorry this took me so long to reply too. All the asks in my inbox have just been gathering dust for the last 3 months. Better late than never

1. Who made the first move?
Wally. Jax wasn’t sure if Wally reciprocated his feelings or not, and he didn’t really have anyone to ask, so he didn’t ask Wally out. Wally got fed up of waiting and decided to just ask Jax out before they both got kiled the next time one of their idiot teams messed something up.

8. Where would they go for their honeymoon?
Jax literally has a time-travelling space-ship and is totally ok with dumping the rest of the legends in Aruba and hijacking the Waverider so he can Wally can have their honeymoon in peace, without world-ending disasters. They’d probably pick cool places, like Beijing, Tokyo and Singapore, as well as more generic places like Paris and Hawaii and all the other places they wouldn’t normally get to see or enjoy (usually because if Jax is in Paris, he’s being shot at by insane maniacs).

11. Who spins in those squeaky office chairs to annoy the other?
Jax. He’ll do this to literally everyone, but especially when Wally is around. He knows that the squeaking noise gets on Wally’s nerves and does it just to be a complete little shit. (However, Wally has learned to retaliate by taking out the screws, so every time Jax tries to spin, the chair will come off and he’ll end up flying off onto his ass. Everyone thinks this is both hilarious and well-deserved.

13. Who opts for buying take away instead of cooking?
Jax. He’s the laziest person when it comes to cooking. If it can’t be microwaved or eaten cold, he can’t be bothered to make it. If he had his own way, he’d probably live off leftovers and microwave meals. So, if he can’t convince Wally to cook (“You have super-speed. You could literally make it in 2 minutes.), then he’ll just lean over from the couch and pick up the nearest takeaway menu. Wally despairs.

19. Who is constantly groping the other in public?
Wally. He’s absolutely shameless. He’ll do it just to make Jax squirm and see that look on his face that means he’s desperately trying not to let anyone know. He also does it because he knows it annoys professor Stein to no end, and when they’re not merged, Stein gets this twitch in his eye that means he knows what Wally is doing. Wally West is an absolute menace

I really hope that that was ok anon, and I’m sorry again that this got lost in my drafts.

anonymous asked:

What's the Apo-and-Echoes-cast status update? I got that Lu and Delthea fever tbh.

So I decided to get off my ass and actually finish the game when this ask came along, only for Alm’s little gauntlet to kick me back down. But at this point my opinions and faves are pretty much set in stone, barring one of our leads doing something incredibly crazy at the very end, so I’m answering it anyway.

Alm and Celica: I really like these two leads! They’re nice, fleshed-out, have good arcs, flawed, dorky and cute, and just really strong all around. Learning they actually were friends for three years versus the few weeks I thought helped make their bond more believable to me, along with some of the (really pretty) scenes they got later on. So yeah, I ship it. They’re pretty high on my favorite FE lords list too, maybe even top three.

Mae: Hooooo boy I mentioned I thought I wouldn’t like her, right? And how she won me over pretty quickly? She’s continued to win me over. Just a peppy, nice, energetic girl all around and a great friend to Celica. Plus she’s voiced by Cherami Leigh, that’s great.

Sonya: Another person who came out of left field. Her single support, base conversations, and boss convo with Judah all give her a surprising amount of depth for a character you don’t have to recruit. She’s basically Camilla done right, as in the “sexy big sis figure lady”.

Saber: Man I like this dude a lot. He’s a good secondary protagonist on Celica’s side, nice development from “only in this for the money merc” to “loyal friend and soldier”. He also provides a nice contrast to her idealism with his gritty realism.

Lukas: Like I said last time, I normally don’t like stoic soldier archetypes, but he’s again another character Echoes did well enough to overcome that. His base convo about his family, and his support with Clive where he seems discomforted by being seen as “cold” were very nice. Also that voice could melt butter *fans self*

Berkut: Ian Sinclair. That’s all I have to say. Ian Sinclair. If you played the game you know what I’m talking about. Hoooooooooly shit that voice acting. Gave him a whole new dimension.

I think those are all the big faves! Luthier and Delthea, I like too. Lu’s adorably awkward. Delthea I’m a bit less fond of, she’s a tad too bratty for my tastes, but her support with Clair and the fact she’s the most powerful unit on Alm’s team win her points.

Same im so tireD of these certain blogs that i dont even follow getting on my dash hating on people from the cast and giving them such uncalled for names??? Like i get that you have your favorite actor/actress but they are all a TEAM and the show wouldn't be the same without them, characters aside, we don't know these people in real life and assuming what they're like and what they mean by something without actually hearing them say it is not okay lol

right?! exactly! what really got the gears in my head running was all that unnecessary crap getting thrown at cami. my eyes can only roll so far back. 

my thing is exactly that, we don’t know these people personally. we can have the fun we have shipping and whatever, but hating on them for little petty things is beyond the line. 

Thoughts about Taichi/Yamato

As someone who LOVES looking through the tags on my posts here on tumblr, I’ve found some really sweet stuff posted along with my TAITO fanart.

Besides the regular fangirling, I’ve found a lot of tags talking about how taito was their first (guy/guy) slash ship.
What was interesting though was that many people mentioned that they started shipping taito before they knew what slash was.

Keep reading

i didnt know it was such a big compliment until you reblogged it but. i did reread but ive got an angry heart after i caught up (after chapter 3) and ive read chapters 4 and 5 multiple times so. keep up the good work! (i love how you write all the characters aaaaaa)

it is like, a mega compliment! like, i think most people will try a story, at least, when they are invested in a ship and like the premise. but to actually read something completely, and then to like it enough to do so again, that says a lot to me, as writer! like, all of my favorite stories are ones that i can pick up and reread and still be completely entertained or touched or enthralled by. and it’s hard to keep up that kind of magic once your audience knows what the ending is. 

all this to say, thank you! i hope that once it’s a complete story, it’ll hold up in the same way.

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Let me just start off by saying: I LOVED this book, and as soon as I got done reading it, the book was instantly added to my all-time favorites. 

From almost the beginning of the book, I shipped Sarkan and Agnieszka. They are polar opposites, and the Dragon is a grumpy little shit for no reason, but their connection (no matter how much Sarkan wants to deny it) is something I could literally FEEL with the writing. Their first kiss had me like:

And I was literally blushing at their sex scene. 

On to Kasia and Agnieszka’s relationship: I loved how close they were. I loved how strong, brave, and independent Kasia was. Although at some points, I felt like Agnieszka may have been obsessed with Kasia. Although, I don’t have many friends in real life, so maybe it was just a foreign concept to me. Regardless, I really loved how strong their friendship was despite the Summoning revealing their jealous thoughts toward one another. In fact, that may have even made them closer.

The Wood and the story of the wood queen reminded me a lot of the children of the forest/origin of the white walkers from Game of Thrones. 

Humans became enemies with the wood people/children of the forest. The wood queen/children of the forest wanted revenge for killing their people. And so:

WHITE WALKERS

Although, Uprooted had a relatively good ending, while I personally think Game of Thrones is doomed.

Another Game of Thrones tie-in: Did anyone else picture the Dragon (Sarkan) as Harry Lloyd?

Sorry if this is completely vague and poorly written. I’m just gushing about how much I love this book.


See you next time!

Anyone else find it funny that the rogue angel that attacked Metatron and Cas was a cupid

and that it was immediately after a conversation where Cas specifically brought up Metatron killing Dean (nevermind manipulating him, stealing his grace, causing the angels to fall, and basically encouraging a civil war so that he could be the new God, because hey no big deal right)

and that after that conversation where Cas brought up Metatron killing Dean, Metatron killed the rogue cupid, and Cas was still all disgruntled and saying that it changes nothing

and that this cupid dude

looks a helluva lot like if this guy from the bar scene in 8x23 let himself go a little bit

(incidentally a scene also involving a cupid, and also a scene involving a romantic relationship between two men, but whatever)

also that Metatron made a big point about how awesome it is to be human and Cas deflected but also seemed to kind of agree, and how later Metatron gave him a big speech about how Cas doesn’t really have a place in Heaven anymore, and who is he really and what does he want, and that Cas can’t spend forever hunting rogue angels when we all know that recently all Cas has been doing is searching for ways to help Dean

and that Cas got his grace back but his wings were still all mangled and how he looked far more at home sitting at the Winchester’s kitchen table where he took off the the trench coat that’s his metaphorical angelic identity

idk it’s almost like they’re trying to tell us something

Y'know, I’m starting to think “no one else can see it” is a thing Rilaya shippers won’t be able to say for much longer. Clearly, lots of people can see it. But does Disney see it? Do the writers see it? And can they see us? I saw someone say not long ago that Season 3 should be the season where the writers take notice of us. Maybe it is. Do they know how much support Rilaya has? How much of their audience would stand by their side if they undertook the admittedly difficult task of making Rilaya happen?

To me, Rilaya makes all the difference in how I view Girl Meets World, and in how I’ll ultimately remember it. It’s the difference between, “Eh, it was that funny little spin-off of a 90’s show that I really liked. It had it’s moments, but it was mostly pretty meh.” or “It was such an important story with a lot of socio-cultural significance and had one of my favorite slow-burn romances of all time.

Now, as much as ever, I’d love to see a happy LGBT+ love story. I desperately want a same sex love story that is like what Cory and Topanga got in BMW. The way I see this show, Rilaya is every bit as obvious as Corpanga was. Riley and Maya belong together. I can only speak for myself, of course, but enduring the missteps, triangles, and shortcomings of the show becomes easier when I think of it as a path that leads to something better. However the ships may fall, I always hope that GMW will continue to get better. I think it has improved over time, but it’s still got a lot of room to grow. There are a lot of ways the show could grow, but Rilaya is one that would be sure to leave me with more lasting respect and satisfaction than anything else I can imagine.

It had been 7 months since I had been captured, and if I had to tell you I hated every moment of it, I would be lying. ISIS is full of ruthless killers, yes- Merciless, freedom hating bastards, certainly- Bad chefs? Hell fucking no. During the 220 days of capture, I have been served some of the finest meals a man can be exposed to. Between the waterboarding, the beating, the constant anti-American propaganda, my 3 square meals a day have been my escape into a world of culinary mastery.

Honestly, I have no clue who they have making these. Everyone i’ve met here has had little to no regard for human life, and would rather die than show sympathy to their enemy. Going by this pattern, I could assume that we would be fed some sort of thin sand-gruel. But we get, like, prime rib and shit. We got lobster once. Last night we had goddamn salads before our buffalo wings. I’ve GAINED weight since I started here. They have to be losing money doing this, there’s no way they can import these sorts of meals for free. It’s in such utter contrast from the rest of my treatment that at first I was SURE that it was a mistake- their top operative must have ordered this, and we got it by mistake, or maybe it was some cruel joke to advance our palette so the upcoming gruel would taste worse. But 7 fucking months in there has been no decrease in quality. If anything, it’s been getting better. After a beating, I overheard a guard ask us what we thought about the meals; most of us had nothing to complain about, as we thought that bringing it up at all would make them realize their mistake and give us the expected gruel. One of us, though, had the gall to call the fucking chicken dry. The guard grunted with acceptance and went back to his rounds, occasionally kicking us in the ribs. The next day, however, we had some lemon-pepper chicken that was absolutely amazing. They even gave us 10 more minutes to enjoy the meals, as if they were sorry yesterday’s meal wasn’t up to their standards.

I write all this because tomorrow they’re beheading me in one of their infamous videos. They asked me what I wanted before I die, and I think they actually got my mom to prepare some of my favorite quiche. I’m both horrified and impressed- they somehow convinced my mom to make these in less than a day and shipped them back here with a one day turnaround. They must have spent a fortune on shipping. They let me have all day in the dining hall, and even got me dessert. I saw a guy in a chefs uniform looking at me, as if he was expecting me to give him a thumbs up or something. Look, I know that he’s a psychopath terrorist that wants to see most of the world burn, but I had to give my compliments to the chef. I feel a variety of emotions over my execution- fear, dread, resentment, anguish, to name a few- but dissatisfaction wasn’t one of them.

I See You JJ

All these throwbacks got me thinking of my favorite Valdaya moment…and it’s not even something they actually did…During Sway 1.0 when Z and V went to the children’s hospital and JJ Jr. Wrote that article about it and said WE KNOW VAL AND ZENDAYA AREN’T A COUPLE BUT IF THEY WERE THEY’D MAKE THE CUTEST LITTLE FAMILY EVER…it proves that even if you don’t think you ship Valdaya you ship Valdaya.
