anonymous asked:

I'm blaming you for this, Lise. I'm 2/3rds of the way through The Shadow Rising. *shakes fist*

YES, GOOD, WELCOME, WE’RE HAPPY TO HAVE YOU

This is the kind of thing I am totally okay with being blamed for, because I’m not kidding when I talk about how Wheel of Time is kind of my forever fandom. Or at least now I can definitely say it is since all it took was coming back to the books a little and I’m right back in it. 

I hope you’re enjoying it, anon! Is this your first read? Do you have favorites yet? Are you feeling inclined to write fanfiction/do fanart/just generally participate in fandom? :D :D :D

I played a dragonborn monk not too long ago, and am now no longer allowed to play monk due to such quotes as
ME: My speed is high enough I can run on water pretty much right?
DM: yes
Me: Since I’m a fire dragonborn can I run on the lava?
As well as
Me: I’m going to fight the hell demon with a chair
Rogue: we can just sneak up on it
Me: I’m Jason Bourne I have to do this

Alright, let’s try to figure out “Is Mitch Marner actually six feet tall?”

This is me on the left. I’m 5′10″. Actually 5′10.5″ if we’re splitting hairs but let’s just say 5′10″. On the right, you’ll see Mr. Perfect McScoresPoints.

So he’s obviously slightly taller than me in this picture. I’ll also throw this in: I’m pretty sure Mitch is NOT wearing shoes in this picture while I am. 

I’m also standing a tiny bit closer to the camera than he is so I look a little bit taller than I should.

Final note, unrelated to Marner’s height: JESUS LORD LOOK AT THE SIZE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MY HEAD AND HIS.

TL;DR - Is Mitch Marner actually 6′0″ tall? Probably, yes.

“I did have a conversation about a month ago that for 24 hours got me very excited about the prospect of possibly getting to bake pies on Broadway. But it’s not happening and it’s probably for the best because I’m really not right for the role. But baking does just so happen to be one of my favorite past times, which I used to do with my mother.”

OT4 Nonsense:

So I literally snorted up my tea when I saw @hchano new comic http://hchano.tumblr.com/post/153530935946/boy-you-have-no-idea-bonus-scene-more

and I couldn’t resist writing a follow up drabble for my OT4: 


::Nino and Alya walking home later that day::

“Hey Babe?”

“Yeah?”

“You think Mari’s cute right?”

“Duh.”

“Like you can appreciate that she is an objectively attractive person who happens to also be your best friend.”

“Uh huh.”

“And you can see where the attraction would be in being involved with her without actually needing to pursue anything further because you’re best friends.”

“Are you worried that I am going to leave you for Marinette?”

“No! I am just saying that you can be in a perfectly platonic relationship and still have a deep appreciation for her as an attractive and desirable potential life mate.”

“Yes.”

“And that doesn’t make you gay.”

“No.”

“Great.”

“Because I’m Bi.”

“… shit.”

“Is this about your crush on Adrien?”

“What? No! Who said anything about that! I never said… did he say something? Because I haven’t said… I mean, what crush on Adrien.”

“God damn it honey you couldn’t have held out for two more weeks? Now I owe Mari dinner AND movie tickets.”

“You two were betting on me developing feelings for my best bro behind my back?”

“What do you mean developing, you and Adrien have been low key dating since November, we were betting on how long it would take you to notice.”

“What are you even talking about?”

“Honey, you pack him lunches.”

“That’s because Nathalie has him on this disgusting all natural diet plan! Of course I have to make sure he’s fed!”

“And what about the fact that you text him first thing every morning?”

“I text you too! You love my morning wake up texts! It’s not my fault that neither of you can be bothered to go to sleep at decent hours like normal people and someone has take care of you bo- oh my God I’m dating Adrien.”

biteswhenprovoked said: It’s Mark Hamill’s Joker, right? He’s the best Joker.

I am going to be incredibly brave and say YES, Mark Hamill is the best Joker.  Please no hate mail!

Look, I just re-watched Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker today, and he had some prime line deliveries in that.  And some might point to the flashback scene as the best stuff, I think his quips with Terry are better.  With Bruce, he was dedicated to destroying him and so was just being a friggin’ jag– with Terry, he was having fun because he wasn’t taking Terry seriously.  

“Well, if it’s a whoopin’ yer a-wantin’!”

EDIT/OP’s NOTE: Thank you to everyone who has received my post well. Just before you decide you have an argument/point to discuss, check here, here, here and here. Or it might simply interest you to read. :)

As someone who grew up in a country with a diversity of different cultures (including the Indian culture), I just want to say that Jonghyun did not mock them - that’s almost how all Bollywood movies are like, and if you’re someone who isn’t exposed to them, then maybe you’re just being butthurt and/or self-righteous by making a huge deal out of this - but yes, he still shouldn’t have, in the words on people nowadays, ‘appropriated’ that culture in any way.

That aside (and no, I am not saying Jonghyun is right or fine to do that at all, that is a different discussion), he has already issued an apology.

This was pretty much the first thing he addressed since his concert ended. He didn’t wait and decide to speak up after the series ended. He didn’t let SM or his managers speak for him. He could have easily done all that - let SM represent him or talk about this AFTER everything, but no. He took it to his Twitter on the first night of the concerts and apologised himself. He realised he’s wrong and even assured that that bit will be taken out of the video. What more do you want from the man?

Okay, maybe someone found it really offensive or insensitive, and you have every right to be upset. You can point it out and tell him about it, but you have no right to bash him after he’s publicly apologised. You don’t get to put him on a pedestal and destroy him when he took the time to explain that he knew he was wrong and he would not make such a mistake again.

We are all humans. He is as much a human as you are. You are, by no means, superior to him just because you’re socially aware of such issues. Not everyone gets the same exposure. Everyone is ignorant in some way, and different races/countries/cultures perceive things differently. For example, in America, because of its history and racial diversity, you might learn that joking about skin colour is wrong, but in some parts of Asia, it’s perfectly normal to joke about it. 

For Jonghyun, he grew up in Korea. Maybe this wasn’t something he learned while growing up. I don’t know, but maybe. I certainly wouldn’t if I didn’t grow up in a racially diverse country and didn’t have Indian friends. Yes, the world is global, but everyone grew up with certain ideals and beliefs, and you need to be aware that just because it applies to you doesn’t mean it applies to someone else. 

You preach about the need to educate and to fight for what’s right. Yes, you’ve done that. He is aware and has admits that he’s wrong. Just because he’s an idol doesn’t mean you can go on and on about how he intends to hurt people or etc. He’s an idol, yes, but it doesn’t mean he naturally knows about everything and everyone.

To those who are hurt by what he did, you have every right to be upset. If you feel like his apology isn’t good enough, I’m sorry, but what do you expect him to do? Go down on his knees and beg until you forgive him?

He’s an idol and an adult, and I think the fact that he spoke up about his mistakes himself, at the first moment possible, is commendable. It speaks a lot about who he is as a person. He’s a human, like all of us. Everyone makes mistakes. Can you honestly say that you have never been accidentally/unintentionally ‘racist’ at some point in your life? How would you like if people bash on you even if you gave a sincere apology about a mistake you did not intend to commit?

We all know him. He’s a sensitive soul. Do you honestly believe he’s done this on purpose? He apologised. Give him a freaking break. He’s a human with feelings. Don’t be a jerk just because he’s an idol whom you expect to be a ‘PERFECT’ role model. Nobody is. People learn and change. 

Because I LOVE ME!
From 350 LBS to weighing 150, I got pregnant with my son and by the end of my pregnancy I weighed 200 LBS! I told myself I won’t go back to that place, I gave birth; healed and got right back to taking care of me! I now weigh 140 LBS and am happy with that number. I didn’t lose weight to be skinny, I lost weight to be HEALTHY! I’m not saying it’s easy because it isn’t, there are going to be times when you just break down because you feel like you can’t. But remember I’m here to tell you that you CAN!
NEVER. GIVE. UP.
I love you 😘❤️
Yes, YOU!

A Standing Ovation w/ Izaya Thoughts

Finally got my copy of the latest addition to the Izaya spin-off series 臨也と喝采を (Izaya to kassai wo). Compared to what most people have been talking about (which is rather few in comparison to the last installment), I thought there was a ton of content to analyze. Mind you, I read through this rather fast, so I still have to re-read it to really absorb all the details, and I am just writing from what I remember and took notes of. In terms of plot, I would not say it was anything new, but what I give the book praise for was how it was done. What made the whole book to me was the style of how it was told and the characters.

So let’s get the main observations that most people have already mentioned before out of the way before getting into new territory.

1. Izaya is left-handed.

Yes, this is something that has been already established, but it was never really a detail explicitly noticeable. Right in the first chapter, Izaya and Sozoro have a conversation about baseball and Sozoro brings up that Izaya is left-handed. It is also brought up again in the later chapters. So for those that missed the detail, now you know.

2. Izaya knows nothing of baseball.

I myself do not have a particular interest for sports, so I am also at a loss of what point Sozoro was trying to make exactly (yeah, I am ignorant too). He brings up something about how a right-handed person would stand in the batter’s box in relation to the pitcher. Confused, Izaya thinks and makes a motion as if he was holding an imaginary bat. “Oh, isn’t Izaya-dono left-handed? Do you even know how to hold a bat?” Sozoro goes on to explain about the stance one takes in the batter’s box. Izaya makes a comment, “Oh, I already know that.” Only for Sozoro to prove Izaya has no idea what he talks about.

I find it hilarious how Izaya pretends to know everything until he is proven otherwise. He would naturally say “hey, I’m only an informant. I can’t know everything.” But when Sozoro teases how Izaya made such a big lie, Izaya immediately starts to have a conversation with Nec (the gothic girl with glasses). While Izaya can admit certain aspects of himself, he still can show embarrassment in his own cute way.

3. Izaya’s Information Gathering/Acting

I guess this is the best way I could describe it with little context. Basically Izaya comes to the stadium because a previous client of his offered tickets for the game as payment for the information Izaya provided. Though naturally, Izaya just came to see the thousands of people gathered in one place and observing them rather than the game itself. So it is just coincidence he is there. Nec, who seems to me to just hack into the system because she had nothing better to do, is the reason why Izaya figured out about the murder.

Compared to the last novel where Izaya comes to town knowing pretty much everything, Izaya has no knowledge of the events that led up to this or even why there is a cleaning crew to take care of the body. This is what gets Izaya involved, his intrigue. This is what made this novel so interesting to me. Izaya had no prior knowledge to anything and had to figure it all out as he goes along. There is a point where he is meeting one of the big heads, named Hiura, at the stadium and says a few keywords to suggest that he knows what they are hiding, referring to the object/prized possession as “that” or bringing up information that he could remember that seemed important Nec found in their system only a short time before while behaving as if he knows everything the group has done up to now. The truth is, Izaya really did not. But he makes them think he does, and based on their reactions to his words can he tell if it actually means something or not.

There is another instance after his meeting with Hiura where he actively tries to make them think he was involved with the events of the murder. He made it sound like he was part of some organization and has connections (well, Haruto brings up that Izaya has “police friends”). Basically, when you get down to it, Izaya is just great at acting and reading people.


4. Izaya’s trauma

There’s another trauma incident. The professional killer, Iroha, was with Hiura and Izaya playing as a “servant.” If it was not for Sozoro coming along, she probably would have tried to eliminate Izaya (at this point, the organization thinks Izaya is possibly involved and dangerous). Izaya paid no attention to her at first until she asked him if he wanted anything to drink. She was wearing a bartender outfit.

What got me in this scene was there was not a lot of description of Izaya’s reaction itself. This is because at that moment, we were given Iroha’s thoughts on her next coarse of action. In the last novel, the police guy that was with Izaya noticed his behavior. In this one, Iroha was just thinking about her job and was not focusing on Izaya too much. It was not until Hiura asks about Izaya’s complexion that it is clear Izaya completely blanked out for that moment. “Sorry about that. I had a traumatic experience with a bartender, you see.” And he regains his composure and goes on like nothing happened.

I cannot help but feel like that scene went on for longer than it probably did just because there was little description on Izaya’s reaction. Just the emphasis on the words bartender uniform…And it was just that. It was a girl, who does not look like Shizuo at all, in a bartender uniform. Just the uniform alone caused a reaction.

5. Sozoro’s Entry on Izaya

Like the last novel, this one starts off with someone being interviewed asking about Izaya. Pretty sure it was Kine. I’ll talk about that later (this is a super long entry). But the rest of the “logs” are interviews with the people who are with Izaya: Haruto, Himari, Nec, and Sozoro. These interviews are called “What type of person is Izaya?” Sozoro’s entry brings up something very interesting and new depth to his character.

“If Izaya ever where to fall in love with one human being, something would change….If he ever really fell in love with one person, then he would truly become evil. To obtain that person, he would be fine with destroying the world, killing people, or making a mess of society….We probably should find ourselves fortunate. That such a man as he, a twisted philanthropist, to love the whole human race equally.”

Really paraphrased that last, but that’s really telling. He would be perfectly fine to destroy the world or kill to obtain the person he would love. Who does that sound like? It’s clear Izaya’s personality mainly was influenced after he met Shinra. Izaya has held jealousy for Shinra too. I think this further backs up Shinra’s observation of Izaya distancing himself so he wouldn’t get hurt. While he admired Shinra, he saw the dangers in being like that.


Now this brings something I think is going to be tackled eventually, but I think this is enough for now. I still have to talk about the other characters. We learn a LOT about the other characters. Yeah, Izaya is the main reason we read this spin-off series, but the other characters are quite enjoyable too. I have to explain some of the events that happen in the book and the characters that appear to also explain what I feel like is a “set-up” for a possible, inevitable future event.

Hope this is enough for now. I know a lot of people cannot get access to the book or read Japanese. I am NOT translating the book. You know, legal issues and all that. Not a professional translator too. But I am just super excited with the developments and thought I could share some of my thoughts. If there is anything I can clarify, I will try my best to elaborate. For those that read this massive post, thanks for reading. Hope this was not too jumbled. ありがとうございます。失礼いたします。

anonymous asked:

tbh i wouldnt discount marco being trans even then, if they still identify as male at that point in the story then it would be fine by censorship standards and besides that nipples shouldnt even be sexual anyway

Yes you’re right, I didn’t disprove anything, I’m just saying why I doubt it’s gonna happen, I am pro-LGBT and I agree nipples shouldn’t be much of a taboo, but well it’s Disney.

I got zero anon-hate so far, I think it’s great.

PSA

I’d just like to say, to whoever vandalized Yuzuru Hanyu’s Wikipedia page earlier today– and yes, I do mean vandalized–, you’re not funny. I am so embarrassed by the Yuri on Ice fandom right now because of you, and now we all have to endure criticism from the actual figure skating community for this. 

Yuri on Ice is an amazing show that is bringing healthy LGBT relationships into the open. 

But there is no class in changing an actual figure skating champion’s name on his own Wikipedia page to that of a fictional character. Unfortunately, that action by just one fan is reflecting on the fandom as a whole. 

To anyone else reading this, just recognize how immature that was. This show has the potential to change perspectives and even lives. I know it’s helped me realize a lot about myself. But if we as a fandom become known for this kind of behavior, we might as well pour that change down the drain. 

Please, please, please. Do not do things like this. This show means so much to so many marginalized people. Don’t discredit us.

I SAW OH HELLO AND THEN I MET JOHN MULANEY AND NICK KROLL AND THEN I DIED AND I AM DEAD


i told john he was my favorite comedian and he kind of jokingly side-eyed me and said, “do you mean that?” and i said “YES i mean that sincerely!” and he looked me right in the eyes and said “thank you for saying that, that means a lot” and it was just perfect

I AM SO HAPPY ABOUT VICTUURI YES. BUT.

I have one concern, they kissed and got together pretty much. RIght? But we are only on episode 7…. I have seen enough romances in animes and sometimes when couples get together this early THERE IS ALWAYS SOME KIND OF ANGST OR CONFLICT AND I DON’T THINK I AM READY FOR THAT. JUST WHAT IF!?!?!?! Things always work out in the end of course…. but I’m just saying….

I could be very wrong maybe things will stay cute and happy and keep on getting progressively gayer but that’s just a minor concern I had. 

softshumjr replied to your post: …

i am so not ready for all the softest kisses. because yeah, those heavy makeout sessions are great. but all those gentle gestures? HUGS? where you can just feel someone else so close? and it feels so right? I’M FINE THIS IS FINE :’))))

HUGS? DID YOU JUST SAY HUGS?! Don’t do this to me. I am so bloody weak for hugs and yes, that closeness, oh god. Magnus and Alec feeling the warmth radiating off each other’s bodies, snuggling into each other’s necks, feeling safe. How intimate will that be? Feeling each other’s chest rise and fall as they breathe the same air, the light beginnings of smiles engraved on each other’s necks with their lips and the world just shifts into place and everything feels right
