WHAT THE FCUK WHAT THE F UKC WHAT THE F KU C I LOVE H I M

Ussan looks like a cross between Hiro (Nokubura) and Gackt here and it’s been bothering me for the past week and a half.

So, I have been watching OK KO all week...

And I have come up with a theory!

So… you all know how red suckers are forever branded in our collective brains to relate back to Laserblast now, right?

Well… in the episode, “One Last Score”, Ginger offers KO a red sucker and while he was eating it (albeit viciously) she claimed he reminded her of her old candy thief partner.  

Now…all the double crosses at the end have me confused as to whether or not she actually did have a partner or not, but in the flashback, the partner did kind of resemble a perhaps younger Laserblast (minus the little cheek freckles, but I think that is just man stubble?).

So… my theory is that Ginger and Laserblast are somehow related…

  • Maybe they were x-partners?
    (And taking the fall for Ginger actually set him on the right path to joining POINT—or if there is an “always been a bad guy undercover theory” floating around, or like a Professor Snape sort of twist, that might fit in this theory too.)

  • Maybe Ginger is Laserblast’s mom or grandma?
    (Less likely, but it has the right timing to go along with the theory?)

  • Maybe she just carries around red suckers and its a common candy in OK KO and I am overthinking this show WAYYY too much…who can say?

Feel free to speculate with me if you want! 

Hey everyone!

Quick thing–I’m officially in the process of putting all my stuff on Archive of Our Own! My profile is here, and so far I’ve started posting The Keys of Fire, The Inugami, and Double Dad Dilemma–will add more soon. 

anonymous asked:

I just wanted to let you know what you said about Martin Stein and dying during the crossover was very antisemitic. Watching a Jewish man die by Nazis is very upsetting and triggering for many Jewish people, and how you worded what you said about his possible death was very upsetting to read. I felt I should let you know this.

I’m really sorry that I upset you, and anyone else as well. That was never my intent, but I can see (and will attempt to unpack) why I think that happened, and hopefully clarify what I meant. I’ll also endeavour to be more careful in the future with my wording.

And I want to clarify that in no way did I ever mean to imply that I want Martin dead. I very much don’t.

I’ve stated elsewhere that I find his death quite sad and I think it’s an unfortunate way to write the character’s exit. And I think that my point about how I expect Martin to be the one to die isn’t altogether out of line, because it’s based on how the Legends’ story arc is set up this season, particularly with the focus on Firestorm and Martin wanting to leave (because Victor Garber is leaving). And my assumption that it’s him is also that it doesn’t fit the overall tone of the other DCTV shows this season. I just can’t see them killing off a major character on The Flash when they spent all their seasonal lead up talking about how much lighter this season is going to be.

I assume (which might be incorrect, but I’m doing my best to get to the heart of this) that the upsetting part wasn’t the speculation about what’s likely so much as the line that I said, specifically: 

“So if they aren’t looking to gut us, and are just looking to give Victor a completely clean exit, then Martin is the one on the chopping block. And honestly? I hope that’s the case.” (boldness added for emphasis here).

(If that’s not the part that was upsetting then I am, truly, at a loss).

I didn’t mean that I hope Martin dies. I’ll agree, it was a callous way to word that (”chopping block” was in poor taste), and the “hope” line was done to contrast how I felt about the possibility of someone else (specifically, Joe West) dying. I’m sorry for implying that I’d ever hope for his death.

And I really don’t want him to pass away. I love his character and would vastly prefer him to be written off in a way that respects the character’s legacy. But I also know that someone is going to die during this crossover, and that the CW is shit and going to make it dramatic as hell. 

I also wasn’t thinking about Martin’s death as relating to the broader crossover and Earth X. I know that’s obviously not an excuse, but I want to clarify that I never once thought of his death and thought “death by Nazis”. I pretty much avoid thinking about Earth X as much as possible, and genuinely mind-blanked on the fact that that’s the most likely way Martin would be dying in this instance. So when I talked in that post about how his death wouldn’t be as gutting to the viewer, I wasn’t thinking about his actual death - I was thinking about the character’s long term narrative arc, and how people (the viewers) will typically find that a person who’s lived a fully and happy life doesn’t cut them as deep as a character who’s just starting a new part of their life. 

Which again, is not an excuse for my not really thinking about the other elements (the antisemitic implications in particular), but when you framed it as “watching a Jewish man die by Nazis” my jaw literally dropped because I couldn’t help but think of Martin’s death as… softer than that, somehow. As being divorced from all this mess of Earth X and as being something I imagined as only about Firestorm, as only about the Legends team. But of course that’s not the case.

What I was thinking of it was in terms of narrative arcs. And I don’t know what else to say on this particular front, because I run back into my original issue, so to speak. Basically: I don’t want anyone else to die either. It’s antisemitic for Martin to die during the crossover, and the entire crossover itself is antisemitic, and there’s just… no solution. It’s ugly.

Blaise (to Harry and Draco): I love the whole “good auror, bad auror” thing you two have going.


Harry: It’s not really a thing, it’s more like I’m nice and he’s not.
