and forget this is all happening

Anyone who thinks a little thing like an engagement or a marriage will stop people shipping Swan Queen doesn’t understand femslash fandom at all. We know our couples hardly ever get together on screen - we are, believe it or not, aware of the profound heteronormativity of the society we live in. But fortunately we also know that whatever happens on screen is only the beginning of the story. Especially a marriage, which is seldom even the halfway point in actual people’s lives, let alone their happy ending. Het shippers know this too - or else why would they write fanfic? But a select few of the least pleasant conveniently forget it when they think they can use a marriage as some absolute and incontrovertible proof of ‘victory’ that will silence those pesky femslash fans.


Swan Queen fandom *is* shrinking, but mainly because of the declining quality of a show that was never very good to begin with. And also because of how shabbily the production has treated them. I know I’ve only watched about half the episodes in the last couple of years and there isn’t a single one coming up that I have any interest in.


But Swan Queen? That will always be one of my ships, just the way Bering & Wells is. Just the way Xena is. Swan Queen was and will continue to be a great story that had the misfortune to be trapped in a third-rate show written by fourth-rate hacks. Luckily in a few months or at most a year my ship will be entirely free of its anchor.

Dearest children, since we’ve been abroad we have missed you all so much. Certain events have compelled us to extend our travels. One day, when you’re older, you will learn all about the people we have befriended and the dangers we have faced. At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may, in fact, be the first steps of a journey. We hope to have you back in our arms soon, darlings, but in case this letter arrives before our return, know that we love you. It fills us with pride to know that no matter what happens in this life, that you three will take care of each other, with kindness and bravery and selflessness, as you always have. And remember one thing, my darlings, and never forget it: that no matter where we are, know that as long as you have each other, you have your family. And you are home.

Sorry to say this, but Kelly Slater and other surfers saying that sharks should be culled in big numbers are in the wrong. In the last 10 years 80 people have been killed by sharks. That’s not a huge imbalance or a big threat. There are areas where a handful attacks by sharks on humans happen every year and people are warned to not enter these waters. (The area which Kelly Slater talks about apparently saw 20 attacks since 2011, 8 of them deadly.) Yet that is still such a small number, compared to real common threats. More people get killed by dogs every single year. (Apparently 25.000 a year.) No one asks that all dogs should be killed. And are surfers forgetting that the ocean is the natural environment of sharks and NOT of humans?

You are entering the natural habitat of a dangerous (because of its anatomy, not because it loves to attack humans) animal, that can kill you if it mistakenly attacks you, and then you call for it to be extinct, so you can have some fun. That’s pretty ironic…

Don't you think it is a bit strange how every ship with Jimin is happening these days?? After that very famous Jikook analysis went all over Tumblr and twitter? All those ships happening back to back is a little.."we are not trying to cover up and make you forget that video" kinda thing. What you think?

I mean, personally, I think it’s just because all the members adore Jimin so much. And also because all the boys are amazing, super close, best friends. I feel like, as Jikook shippers, we shouldn’t think the other ships aren’t just as real. We shouldn’t disqualify (?) any ships just bc we think Jikook are real or better. Jimin is the member that everyone in the group loves. They could rave about Jimin for hours and not get tired of it. So, it’s natural the other members have moments with him.
Not to say that there isn’t a possibility of trying to distract shippers from Jikook. It could be happening. I just don’t think we should ruin other ships moments 😊😊

Hi blen! Today's my birthday and I honestly have no idea what I'm supposed to do that doesn't involve studying because medschool. May I ask for hc's on how Kidd, Marco, Lucci, reiju and enel would celebrate their birthday ? Thanks!

NOICE, also sorry, I would have done it on your actual b-day but I forgot, Im sooo sorry *cries* but anyway happy belated b-day!!!!

Kid

  • PARTY PARTY FUCKING HARD
  • Everybody is allowed to get pissdrunk and make a total mess
  • Kid loves his birthday so much, not as much as Enel or Reiju but still
  • Also the thing is that Kid is like super cool with his crewmembers like he allows them to do all kinds of shit
  • He’s not concerned with any presents at all, he just wants to fuck shit up as much as possible, destroy some rival pirate ships, mess with their crews and raid some cities

Marco

  • Marco would not mind if somebody were to forget his bday but of course that would never happen
  • one minute after 12pm on his bday he would get dragged out out of bed and somebody Thatch or Ace would smash a cone party hat on his head
  • Everybody is having the time of their life and Marco has lots of fun too
  • The highlights of the evening would include the giant birthday cake made by Thatch and embarassing stories about Marco when he was new in the crew told by Whitebeard

Lucci

  • He definitely likes his birthday a lot too!
  • Hattori always sings him a birthday song
  • All of his friends, the CP9 people except for Spandam are invited to his home, wherever that might be, I would love to know how Cipher Pol agents live
  • he gets about an equal amount of decent and bullshit presents, the decent present were obviously bought/made by Kaku, Kumadori and Blueno and the bullshit presents are on Kalifa, Jabra and Fukuro

Reiju

  • Dawww Reiju loves her birthday
  • She totally enjoys being a princess but especially getting pampered on her birthday to the max is just great to her
  • Gets Ichiji, Niji and Yonji to participate in her party and buy her some presents
  • Mostly Yonji only does as she says because he’s scared of her
  • Her birthday cake would be some vanilla/strawberry flavor because that’s her favorite cake

Enel

(this one is my favorite @tinycrab​)

  • Asadöfljaösf His birthday is truly his favorite day of the entire year
  • He usually doesn’t care about his age so no one actually knows how damn old Enel is they just celebrate it for the sake of the party and because Enel thinks he is the most important person on planet earth
  • Makes his priests and subordinates send messages through all of Skypia so the citizens bake him cake and other goods and of course get him b day presents
  • Enel’s birthday is in the most literal meaning a national holiday

maybe i should feel more upset about magnus losing his body but hes been here before so many, many times, & he wouldnt have been able to remember that if he had survived. now, he can grow a new body & regain his lost decade & forget this ever happened. and that’s what’s fucked up.

living forever seems to him a terrible fate but he has now died 20 times. he’ll never be reunited with julia unless he chooses to cross over to the astral plane & he’ll never even know it. like at this point i’m thinking that the campaign might end with magnus willingly crossing over since the thing he’s been cheating death to accomplish all this time will finally be finished

his desire to be reunited with julia & his recklessness, half deathwish. is a pretty substantial part of his character & now we know hes actually a ghost trapped in this cycle by unfinished business

I am so fucking devastated like WHY does LIFE have throw me CONSTANT curveballs. I felt like I finally caught a break. Finally. I was so happy. Things were so good. Now it’s all gone to shit again. I spent a solid two hours last night sobbing like I cannot believe what happened. There goes my happiness. There goes everything. I don’t know if i’ll be able to recover this time. I really don’t. I just really want to get high as fuck and forget about everything. I want to be numb again. I don’t want to feel anything.

So with guied evolution we are talking about some seriously long timeframes. Tens of millions of years at the very least, if not the billions of years it took on Earth for humans to arise. Forget hunting, just accidents and calamities would have killed almost all senet beasts by then, right?

Creation stories in Gefendur scripture talk about the “long slumber” of the senet beasts during man’s “slow rise.” So the gods must have put them to sleep for long stretches of time.

I should emphasize here that what I’m talking about and what Lady Ilganyag are talking about are still stories. There’s no real confirmation that any of this happened the way anyone is implying. She could be lying, I could be misdirecting you. Take it all with a pinch of salt ;)

My thoughts about Skam and my relationship with my mom

I got my mom to watch Skam a couple of weeks ago and we just finished season 2. She’s so excited for season 3 since Isak is her fav character (and she loves Eskild and Sana too!). 

This spring is really busy and tough for the both of us, she’s running for city council and I have finals, graduation and entrance exams for university - and that’s why I’m so happy we have this little moment where we can just relax while watching and discussing Skam. We Even (see what I did there, I’m so clever and original) have own inside jokes about Skam now. 

Since we are so stressed and have argued a lot in the past few months, I’m really thankful for the moments Skam gives us where we can just forget all our stress and worries for a while. Skam has been the best thing to happen to my relationship with my mom in a very long time.

At an interview
  • Yuuri: *forgets the English word for something* Victor, help me out what's the English word for [the word in Japanese]
  • Victor: *also forgetting the Same word in English* shit, I know it's [the word in Russian] but I don't remember either
  • Victor and Yuuri: *mumbling "what's the word. FUCK, what's the word" in Russian/Japanese*
  • Yurio: God dammit. IT'S [The Word in English]

PHICHIT-CENTRIC YOI COMIC???

Because I love this child and he needs more love, especially his relationship with Yuuri ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

While Phichit is an incredibly friendly lovable cinnamon roll, he won’t stand for anything threatening his best friend Yuuri, even if the threat happens to be someone Yuuri loves. Yuuri clearly adores the Victor he knows now (just as much as he idolized the distant figure in the past), but Phichit won’t forget how much Victor hurt Yuuri in the past, unintentional or not.

I headcanon that on top of being a skilled figure skater, Phichit is an academic genius who skipped grades and entered college in Detroit super early where he met Yuuri, which explains their long acquaintance despite the age difference. He is very, VERY protective of Yuuri. I’ll put up a more detailed headcanon post later (and if there’s interest, possibly prequel comic of pre-YOI anime Detroit college days).

Also, extra:

The most special moment for me in my entire Hamilton run was the moment I came downstage and turned to the three guys and sang, “Raise a glass to freedom, something they can never take away no matter what they tell you” and the audience roared at that line and clapped. That had never happened before. That right there was the moment I said, “Everything’s going to be alright and we’re all in this together, no matter who the president is, and we can never forget that.” - Anthony Ramos

The signs as Albus Dumbledore quotes

Aries: “Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.”

Taurus: “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.“

Gemini: “I sometimes find, and I am sure you know the feeling, that I simply have too many thoughts and memories crammed into my mind.”

Cancer: “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.”

Leo: “Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right, and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good and kind and brave because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort.”

Virgo: “It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it.”

Libra: “Do not pity the dead, Harry, pity the living, and above all those who live without love.”

Scorpio: “This pain is part of being human … the fact that you can feel pain like this is your greatest strength.”

Sagittarius: “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”

Capricorn: “It is important to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then could evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated.“

Aquarius: “After all, to the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”

Pisces: “He [Voldemort] never paused to understand the incomparable power of a soul that is untarnished and whole.”

“Blood On Your Hands”.

I can’t get Jack’s title for the final episode of Detention out of my mind.

I have no doubt that it’s Anti talking to us. So why is there blood on our hands? 

Then I remembered the last time blood was spilled on the channel.

Hard to forget. What’s more is that Anti blamed us for what happened.

You could have stopped me… But you just watched.”

… Is this just a reminder from Anti, that all we can do is watch? I’m not sure.

I’m more curious if the blood will ever wash off.

my least favorite thing is where I don’t intentionally procrastinate and instead just suddenly find out that I totally didn’t do the thing and it is now too late

I hate that thing

A Farewell Letter from Wonder Girls to WonderFul

Hello Wonderful, this is Wonder Girls.
It’s already been almost 10 years since we’ve been together.
The moments that we have cried together, laughed, been sad, been happy have passed by us quickly.
Thank you for giving us memories that we will never be able to forget for the rest of our lives.
For 10 years, there were many things that happened and my heart is heavy telling all of the fans who were always on our side first and who believed in us and waited for us for those things.
I am sorry and thankful.
Because of Wonderful’s precious support, we, Wonder Girls, were able to receive a lot of love for 10 years. I’m thankful always and whenever, and again I am thankful and will cherish all of our moments deep in my heart.
Whenever we miss each other and want to see each other, i hope we can heal by listening our memory filled music. It might be hard but wherever, we will work hard to give you strength.
Thank you and thank you, and again thank you and thank you. We were so happy. Our lives were like a dream.
Please remember these moments… Until now, we were Wonder Girls.

  • what i say: i'm fine
  • what i mean: will we be getting an ova of what happens at this year's banquet? what wild antics will occur? will yuuri get drunk because of how happy he is and forgets that he's a touchy-feely drunk? will christophe bring out his stripper pole again? will yuri be "dragged" into a dance-off with yuuri again? who is going to hook up with who? who is going to drag otabek into a dance off where he shows off moves that no one ever thought possible? all i know is phichit's going to have this all over the internet as it happens.
