and has the maturity of a 12 year old

touhou ages that Fuck Me Up

  • cirno is at least 60. what is that. she’s a child
  • reisen is older than my mom. bunnies reach maturity at like 6 months old and if we assume reisen joined the army right at maturity, immediately before the lunar war started, that still makes her at least FIFTY
  • speaking of which tewi’s older than reisen by a lot. like, a LOT.
  • mokou is older than everyone in the myouren temple yet somehow has even LESS shit together
  • say marisa was 12 in eosd. that would make her… 25 today. marisa is a goddamn millennial.
  • again, let’s say sanae was in middle school in mof, like 13 or 14. today she’d be in her early 20s. if you assume she was in high school, that would make her like 26 what the  f uck
  • benben and yatsuhashi are. two. two years old. TWO
Opinions on the clique and Debby:

Look I know some or most of the clique knows about the things Debby Ryan did. Whether it’s about Halsey or the deleting tweets after someone pointed out the faults in her post
Or if you know about other things.
I know what she did was wrong
But bullying her to the point where she’s liking things that say “I hate the clique so much.”
Or not even wanting to be online. Is pushing it too goddamn much.
You have to remember she’s still one of Josh’s close friends.
Yes I know, Tyler and Jenna are wary of her. I am too. But you can’t bully her like this.
Even sending death threats?
Oh hell no.
I can’t even fathom what the clique has become anymore.
We used to be such a loving and supportive community.
Nowadays, it’s fucking rare to find a nice clique member.
If any nice clique member still calls themselves a ‘member of the clique’
Debby is Someone josh holds close to in his heart. Would you do this to Tyler, Mark, Jesse, Colin, or any other of his family or friends?
Look, don’t bash me for “protecting” her.
I’m just as angry as you are.
But at least I’m mature enough to not do dumb shit like sending hate and death threats.
You all are acting like 12 year olds.
Just stop and grow tf up.
You’re being ridiculous.
I know not all of you act like this, and to those people, I applaud you. Keep doing you.

Can you believe this was meant to be 3k?? I honeslty don’t know what happened there. all I know is that I have five exams in less than three weeks that I should be revising for and instead did this. yikes I hope this was worth it. (also pray4me that I don’t fail everything) x

Also on the topic of exams the actual reason I wrote this now was bc I’m kinda not gonna be writing for a while because of Lovely responsibilities and school stuff and revision so I’m gonna leave yall with this before I’m off Working and doing fun stuff that adults do.

I hope this is ok!!

Dan’s halfway through skipping History when he does it.

He doesn’t know why he did it – he really doesn’t, he was just kind of bored one afternoon and happened to be carrying a Sharpie and hey, it’d just be a laugh, right? In a school like this, what’s the worst that could come out of leaving his phone number on a cubicle wall?

His pen squeaks across the pale blue paint, already tainted with curse words and penis drawings and tipp-ex and “Call _____ for a good time ;)”. He supposes the caretakers have given up with trying to cover up the graffiti – there are still thin layers of paint and chipped plaster coating every inch of the stall walls, at least showing attempted coverage, but people had just written over them, scribbles of song lyrics and “never got caught” tattooing every inch of the previously blank walls. No amount of assemblies or threats of “whoever did this-“, inserts picture of something someone had written about the Maths teacher on the hall projector, “is seriously going to pay” from the head teacher had ever stopped anyone, so, really, what does Dan have to lose? Sure, they could trace the phone number, but that doesn’t prove anything – he could just as easily throw on the ‘innocent’ act and say it was his friend.

07843983276, he writes. He doesn’t sign it off with any comment, nor kisses, not even a smiley face let alone a winking one. He just leaves it there, in a kind-of conspicuous place just above eye-level on the right hand side of the door, eleven digits amidst many others.

Honestly, you're truly right. The phandom has calmed down so much in the past year? When I got into the phandom in early 2015, I remember people were trying to claim phan is real because of the moment in fnaf 3 where dan scared Phil when really someone just photoshopped a photo. And people thinking that they were gonna come out when really it was the 7SC app. Now everyone is wayy more chill and just takes things as is.

i think that as whole it’s been really interesting to see the phandom (as well as dan and phil) develop over the years. i’ve been a casual viewer since 2011/12 and became more invested around late 2014. dan and phil have matured loads. but so has their audience. it will suffice to say i was the 12 year old watching them when i first started. so llamas and lions were the best thing ever and i wouldn’t stop watching amazingdan or pinof 2 (idk i had some weird obsession with it). but dan and phil have grown so much? it’s startling to watch some of their older videos nowadays because they are the same people but with more developed opinions and ideas about the world. 

and the phandom has grown so much too. it’s weird. even back in early 2015 we relied on shoddy edits of them for “phan proof” and just general fondness between the two. when phil trash #1 happened it was sort of mind blowing how crazy everyone was about it. no one stopped talking about it for weeks. now dan and phil can just go post a video where they call each other daddy the whole time and the next day we sort of forget about it. before content was purely neutral and vague to their personal lives but now they are slowly inviting us into their personal lives and the phandom has matured enough for this to happen without much fanfare. it’s quite gratifying.

i’ve sat back and watched the phandom for quite a while now (i didn’t participate in it for like a year on tumblr after becoming an aesthetic blog but i still followed loads of phan blogs). there has been a constant flow of people in and out of this community which always provides new content. but as dan and phil’s content matures, as does the phandom. 

i can’t put into words how much has changed but there has been a huge shift. dan and phil have so gradually slipped these things in that we haven’t even noticed until we’re just accepting of announcements of dan going with phil up north for his birthday or seaside walks. for the first time in how long dan and phil have casually mentioned the term ‘phan’ without negative connotation. it’s really nice. organic.

i’m so glad we aren’t screaming and banging our fists when anything mildly interesting happens. it’s more like a nod of approval from us as dan and phil live their lives. it’s a much healthier relationship between us and them now and it might be hard to see that but the phandom’s just a lot better an environment now. it’s good.

anonymous asked:

The age difference between Aang and Katara is a common argument used by you Zutarians, what are your thoughts on that?

Well I do think Aang was too young for a relationship, the kid was only 12 years old. And I do agree with the age gap argument between Aang and Katara. The thing is what Aang was doing is completely normal. He’s a 12 year old boy and Katara is a pretty girl who’s older than him, he’s going to have a crush on her, that’s totally fine. I’m a guy, when I was 12 I had small crushes on older girls too, there’s nothing wrong with that. Katara however is a teenager, she’s 14-15 years old, same age as a girl in her freshmen or sophomore year in high school. Now I’m not sure about Kataang shippers, but I did not know of a single girl that age to be interested in a middle school aged boy which Aang is. Girls those age are interested in boys their age or slightly older, examples from the show: Jet, Haru and Zuko. Girls grow and mature faster than boys, Aang and Katara just aren’t on the same maturity level as well. Everything about Kataang is just eh, from their age gap, maturity levels and the lack of development it received.

It takes longer for us guys to mature than girls, Katara is very mature for her age and at times she doesn’t look like she’s 15 at all. Zuko is 16-17 and the age gap between him and Katara is fine because they both are teenagers and are on the same maturity level.

Also Katara has a type, and it doesn’t happen to be bald, 12 year old vegans.

Have you ever just stopped and thought about how powerful and strong-willed Nico di Angelo actually is?

-He went into Tartarus ALONE OF HIS OWN FREE WILL and came back. Even Percy- who Nico called the most powerful demigod he’s ever met- acknowledged it, and he would’ve literally gone insane if it wasn’t for Annabeth.

-He was so depressed that even the goddess of misery had nothing worse to give him. GODDESS of misery.

-He was almost killed shadow travelling. HADES warned him he could die and he still went on for Camp Halfblood, which never accepted him.( Atleast, that’s what he thought anyway)

-He survived a jar full of poisonous air with just a pomegranate seed per day in coma. And if that’s invalid, he lasted a lot more time than he was supposed to.

-Nico’s agony in Cupid’s palace: Grass around him dying, stones cracking and waves of darkness rolling off him so strong that when they hit Jason, he almost lost consciousness. JUST WAVES.

-He’s scared of Love more than he is of Tartarus. Him coming out of his shell and being able to tell everyone(or at least some people) about his feelings-something that wouldn’t have been accepted AT ALL during his time…

-When Nico got mad at him, Jason wanted to draw his sword just in case and he thought Nico might be MORE THAN HE COULD HANDLE even though he’d met plenty of scary demigods before.

-This may or may not seem to be a very solid argument, but strong willed because when he met Percy at Camp Jupiter, he STILL LOVED HIM, and Percy probably looked so lost and forlorn, wouldn’t you have blurted out even 1 tiny thing that could’ve made him feel a little less helpless?

-How many 12 year olds can achieve the title GHOST KING? Even if they WERE Hades’ kids.

-He radiates death, KRONOS’ ARMY fell back from him.

-He matured so much after ‘The Last Olympian’ no one needs me to explain this point further.

THINK LONGER ABOUT THE 4TH POINT AND ALL WORDS IN CAPITALS.

2

Guess what I found in the zuko x katara tags? Yup more bullshit. Time to backup my Ship…

Okay so this blog is clearly about negativity and why you should not ship this couple( and manny others). So what is there to expect? Noting really but hate and ignorance.I can’t speak for the others,(due to a lack of knowledge) but I can for Zutara.

I also wanted to counter this post, because if they have the right to bash at it, and speak their mind, then I have the very same right to defend it.

So here we go….

—————-

1. They’re both underage?

Come on you need a better explanation, if you think about it half of the fandom ships Katara with a 12 year old pubescent monk.( think about that for a moment).

Also for Kataras age she is very mature, she had to stop being a child the day her mother was killed. So yes they might be young, katara at 14 and zuko at 17, but their maturity level extends beyond their years.

2. Teaches girls to go to abusive bad boys?

Well no, not really. Zuko was not abusive, they were simply enemies at war. Zuko might have gotten katara a few times, but he has also gotten his ass owned by the water bending master.

And to think that Zuko would be abusive,Just intrigues me.
Zuko was scared by this own father because he did not fight back; he only wanted his fathers forgiveness, does this not say a lot about his morals? He was also raised by His uncle Iroh after his banishment, he is a kind hearted man with much wisdom.

Also katara can handle herself, she will fight you ,and most likely demolish you if you threaten her, her friends and the ones she cares for.So being in an abusive relationship?? That would be a no go for Katara. Zuko would end up in the infirmary if he dared to lay a hand on katara in such a manor.( if he were to be that type of person)

3. Fetishes wealth and Aristocracy?

Well Zuko is a prince and of the royal family ,Wealth tends to be entitled with such titles. Zuko has also experience life at the bottom of the chain, he understands what it is like to have very little wealth.

As for Katara?? She is a water tribesmen, her community was all about sticking to one another in times of hardship(this also involving wealth). So growing up, I can imagine katara to be the type who does not overly praise wealth. She is thankful, but not greedy.

4. Zuko is a pyromaniac??

Well he is a fire bender, and they tend to use fire A lot. He also learns to control his fire in a relaxed mind set so… I don’t know what else to say( maybe this blog is meant to troll ,eh)

5. Zuko is rich and privileged and thus potentially abusive??

Restating are we?? I already voiced my thoughts on numbers 1&3.

6. Katara nags to much??

Want to try again?? Becuse that was a fail!

Kataras nagging is one of the very things that make her katara, it’s just part of her personality. She is also considered the mother and care taker of the group, she looks out for everyone, so I can see what she would nag so much; Have you seen the team avatar?? They are a bunch of crazy ass children haha( still love them anyways ).

7. They’re both survivors of trauma and thus codependent?

For the longest time katara only had her village, her brother and her grangran for support. But she truly felt lost with having this experience ; of loosing her mother.
She had to be her own strength for a long time , especially when her father left to fight in the war.

Suddenly there was someone she could relate to, a person who had also lost his mother because of the war ; the fire nation prince.

They can draw strength from one another, it would be a balanced" give and take" type of relationship. Zuko has seen her at her worst, but also at her best; the same would be implied for Katara.

——————

So I don’t know where you got your facts about Zutara being such a horrid ship, then again you are entitled to believe in what you want. But that means I am also entitled to voice my thoughts.

why is it SO hard for kids in their early teen years to comprehend the fact that they still have a lot of maturing to do … like starting from around 12 years old i started to feel like a completely different person every year. im 16 and i know i still have a lot of mental growing to do. like if you open yourself up to the fact that your life has barely begun and you still have a lot of time to grow as a person its so much easier to learn and become a better person

This is a real story that makes my heart sing.

Bwwm stories are my fave so get ready for this.

So the other day I saw my ex on Bumble and I was like lowkey feeling some type of way about it. My best friend and I whipped out the red wine, cookies, popcorn and Fighting Temptations and just sulked. It was Seventeen Magazine advice column worthy. Anyways once I saw him on there I could officially begin to move on, so my friend and I decided to go out in the city last night. We had sulked, and now it was time to rage.

So we’re at this bar with our group of girlfriends and I’m just ready to have a good time. So we’re sitting there drinking and gabbing away and these two guys walk in and immediately I notice one of them. He’s tall with this messy, light brown man bun, wearing a thermal and drinking and old fashioned and I had never seen anything more beautiful. (An old fashioned people. At a tiki bar. Perfection.)

My best friend was like “stop being so obvious about staring at him!” But I couldn’t help it. I was eyeing him. And he was eyeing me. I didn’t know what to do. Every time I looked in his direction he was already looking at me and smirking. I was hardcore trippin I was like there’s no way this guy is checking ME out in my group of all white friends! lolol
My best friend was like “Go talk to him!” And I was like “No way!” That’s not how I roll. I’m not the type to approach. I sit back. And I wait.

So then one of the girls I was with (who I lowkey think was feelin man bun too) confidently invited them over to our table and I was like this is it. What’s going to happen. He introduces himself to all of us and we’re all talking and laughing. He’s very chatty and nice and his friend is funny.

Then he asks what we’re doing afterwards and I was like “I think we’re going to another part of the city” and he was like “okay well can I get your number so if we go down there we can all meet up?”
(My face on the inside 😳😳😳😳) I’m like Yeah sure! So I give him my number and he texts me a few minutes later.

We talked all night and when he asked if I wanted to come by his place, I politely said I don’t actually work like that lol and said “sorry to disappoint.”
He responded, “Far from disappointed. But I will be if I don’t get to see you again.”
“What should we do about that?” I asked.
“I propose an afternoon walk in the park followed by brunch.”
“That sounds lovely!” I replied.

#pumped

So we’re figuring out the logistics of our date and I’m like oh shoot I wonder how old he is. So I’m like “one more question how old are you?”
And this guy bout to be like “35. You?” Me internally: “THIRTY FIVE. YOU’RE THIRTY FIVE IS THIS A JOKE? DO YOU DRINK FROM THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH? WHAT KIND OF SORCERY?!?!”
But instead I say, “23!” With the exclamation point as if I’m excited about this.

Women are more mature than men at my age anyway and it would be nice to date someone who has their life together, knows what they want, and goes after it. He’s so cute and the attraction was definitely there but 12 years?! I don’t know what to do.

Advice girl is asking for your advice bwwm world.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I hope you don't mind me asking this but I read your meta about the characters you think are coded as gay and now I'll like to know your opinion on their respective partners' sexuality. I mean, what do you think about Historia, Bert and Erwin?

About this post.

Since nobody’s sexuality was fixed for any of the other characters, I assume they’re bisexual unless proven otherwise, meaning they have a large panel of options. 

When it comes to characters like Grisha, who married women, had kids with them and felt sorrow when they’re gone, it’s safe to assume they’re straight. For a major portion of the characters, you can leave room for interpretation, despite arguments pointing otherwise. In example, according to his crush on Mikasa stated multiple times in multiple universes and him jerking off to an erotic book instead of working (cf. vol 7 fake preview), Jean being straight is valid. However, the counterarguments in there are he’s still young, which leaves enough room to figure out his sexuality. That and if you really take Sasha’s line in chapter 18 to the letter…

Jean and Eren clashing again - Ch. 18

That’d mean Jean’s a sexually confused teen. Unless he openly declares he’s “not interested in guys”, that is. 

In the same vein, literally nothing is revealed about Zeke’s preferences, but the fact he’s born on yaoi day, like Reiner, could hint at him being gay, which nicely contrasts Grisha’s familial lifestyle. I’m really curious whether this is a hint or something connecting him to Reiner… or both.

Besides, I don’t want to exclude possible asexual characters, who have absolutely no interest in dating or marrying.

Not that it prevents shipping to ignore these facts, but that’s not the topic here.


On one side, you have Historia sticking to Ymir which definitely shows her interest towards her, on the other one, she feels completely pointless when she isn’t here, not really showing interest in anybody. As she said it herself…

Historia standing up - Ch. 68

…she’s one of those who get swept along by the flow.

To me it’s hard to say whether or not Historia is homosexual or bisexual, because she hasn’t shown any interest in men. She was more open to Eren than the others after Ymir left but his words weren’t the one who pushed her to refuse to become the next Founding Titan. 

When asked if she had a particular type in the Smartpass AU interview

Krista: Hmm…erm, a kind person… I guess?
Ymir: Like I said, such vague answers is why you’re easily tricked.
Krista: Ugh… But I don’t really know. I don’t see many guys around anyway.
Ymir: They’re all around you and you didn’t even see them, huh… That is truly a sad thing…

She didn’t specify a gender. She was probably too fixated around Ymir because she fits the bill. Those said boys attempted to send her love letters but Ymir…

Krista: No, not really…
Ymir: Yeah, there were guys who wanted me to pass her their love letters, but I tore them up, and threw them away on the spot.
Krista: Ehh?! Those poor thing…
Ymir: Hmph. I ain’t handing my Krista over to spineless losers who lack the courage to even speak to her.

That’s something to witness on the long term (if there is a long term anyway) but it’s impossible for me to conclude on her sexuality so I’ll leave it vague.

Moving on to Erwin. I guess the closest we ever had about his romantic interests was this line:

“More interested in titans than Marie… there’s something wrong with you!”  - Ch. 53

His crush towards Marie happened when he and Nile were trainees (around 12-15 years old). This is the whole interest of letting characters mature before defining their sexuality, because you never know whether or not you have a late-bloomer. Erwin has never been in a romantic relationship after that.

Concerning his interest with Levi, I’ve explained myself here. More evidence is available on this post. Basically, Erwin opens himself to Levi more than his other subordinates and that’s indicative of a certain degree of affection for him. I’m assuming Erwin is bisexual because of the Marie thing, but even then I’m being large because compared to his life as a member of the SC and as a commander who’s facing death when confronting titans, that part was completely irrelevant. 

And then there’s Bertolt.

I’m finding myself with another Historia-like case in the sense where he’s fixated to Reiner but also admires and respects his friends.

He’s constantly seen hanging around Reiner, even in the highschool AU (hell, even his description says he’s Reiner’s shadow!) and when asked if he had a type in the Smartpass AU, he blurted out in front of the journalist:

Oh my, it’s getting pretty heated up all of a sudden, huh. I suppose now is the best time to pose this question. “What’s your type?”

Bertolt: E-EEEHHH?!

Reiner: I like girls who are cute and like a goddess!

That’s a bold statement, Reiner. As for Bertolt…

Bertolt: I… I don’t really…

Reiner: What, you haven’t noticed? Nearly everyone realised that, you know?

Could you tell me more about it?

Bertolt: I-I told you, it’s ermm…

[…]

Let us now move onto a light-hearted question. “What is your type?” It’s something I asked earlier on…

Bertolt: I-I told you! I-I don’t really h-have anyone I like…

He didn’t mention anything specific and was embarrassed by the question. I want to note he was deliberately keeping secrets with Reiner about their true origins and identity, so everything here was meant to be read with a grain of salt.

There’s that crush thing on Annie that would nail him as bisexual, and while I’d label him as that to be inclusive, I don’t think that “crush” is very relevant as explained in this post.


So yeah, I’d gleefully label those three as bisexual with a strong leaning towards their respective partners. Evaluating sexuality in absence of concrete evidence is hard.

anonymous asked:

in 181 Sakura says she'd feel alone if Sasuke left even though she has friends and family, and a lot of extremists use this against her, saying she doesn't understand Sasuke at all (because he lost everything yadda yadda). what do u think of this

It’s wild. While yes, 12 year old Sakura did not fully understand where Sasuke is coming from- neither did anyone else. By part 2 she understood his motivations for wanting to kill Itachi but that was when she matured from literally age 

t w e l v e

 Extremists want to pretend she did not say ‘are you choosing to be alone’ ‘it’s fun and happy when everyone is together’ ‘ill do anything to make you happy’ because amidst her confession she took a god awful moment to state her feelings being that she loves him so much that if he were gone she’d feel and I quote the official translation ‘very lonely’, because apparently expressing how you feel is guilt tripping because sasuke reacted like this

but sasuke reacted like this because he understood where she is coming from, he flashed to team 7 because just like sakura he’d be very lonely without them.

What nobody understood was that sasuke was not on a quest for revenge, he was chasing his clan’s justice and honor. How would 12 year old sakura or 12 year old none family having naruto understand that when neither did 26 year old Kakashi? It’s not fair that she is held to this weird standard when the entire point of this confession was sakura loves sasuke so much that she begs him not to isolate himself and stay and be happy. That was the crux of the matter, however when you try to help someone you love so much there is no way your own personal feelings won’t be involved hence why she slipped out a few ‘i love you’s’ and ‘without you i’m lonely’. Apparently, that is very selfish and she deserves to be crucified for it. Bad Sakura. Bad bad bad. How dare you state your emotions should have shut up and been mother teresa about it you selfish awful person.

Quincy Li, the Transformer

Name: Quincy “Qinlin” (aka verdant forest) Li I named him Quincy bc of the visual of Q and bc of the ‘in’ part, not bc Qin sounds anything like Quin lmao

Occupation: mercenary employed by RED (sort of, more in his backstory)

Age: 26 (in 1970 so he’s like… the same age as scout…?)

Height: 5′8″ (standing)

Build: Average. His upper body and core strength is far better than his lower body strength. He is currently still undergoing physical therapy, so he’s working on it. His arms probably get buffer as time goes on simply because of the nature of his disability (paralysis below the knee if thats even a thing lmao either way it has to do with his legs and basically the whole point of his class).

Description: He has fairly standard Chinese features, and his skin is on the tanner side (bc seriously, don’t believe those commercials, far more Asians have darker skin than those vampires you see on TV–his skin tone is actually fairly close to my own). His hair is short, and he generally wears a beanie and fingerless gloves. He usually is found wearing a modified dress shirt with a maroon vest emblazoned with his class logo. He wears a small, stud earring on his left ear. 

Likes: Machines, programming, computers, technology, exploring, cars, motorcycles, listening to folktales

Dislikes: exercise, his physical therapy training, his crutches (even though he understands their necessity), his leg braces, his modified shoes, gender dysphoria

Alignment: True Neutral (gives zero fucks tbh)

Zodiac: Aquarius

DOB: February 2, 1944

Gender: Male

Orientation: I haven’t really thought about it yet tbh although I don’t think it will ever come into play should I ever end up rping as him at any point? but I have a feeling he’d end up bi/pan like most of my muses lmao

Voice: The sound of a 12 year old boy like the kind you meet in tf2 servers tbh His voice sounds gender neutral. Even if you listened very carefully, it is hard to discern whether his voice is that of a mature woman or a boy in his teens.

Languages: English, Mandarin Chinese

Education: He’s fresh outta college dude. Went to a 4 year for a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering, then took a few years of grad school until he was taken to Mann Co, where he finished his education under Engie.

Nationality: Chinese American (he has an American passport bc he was born in the US, specifically, San Francisco)

Disorders: Mild PTSD

Habits: Tinkering with things that don’t belong to him. Prone to experimentation with machines, specifically cars and motorcycles. He loves motorcycles bc he can use them to great effect if he mods them a bit to accommodate for his legs. Plus, gotta go fast my dude, and motorcycles are the easiest way for him, a self-proclaimed adrenaline junkie, to get his fill of adrenaline (plus he’s a speed demon i mean what do you expect, being stuck to a wheelchair all day?). Likes trying to “sneak” around as best he can: it’s a habit he developed since childhood, and is especially a challenge bc of his disability.

Positive traits: Intelligent, confident (in some ways, at least), gives good advice despite not following it on his own

Neutral traits: Passive, impartial, talkative

Negative traits: Impulsive, immature/petty, uncaring, selfish, prideful

And, of course, an obligatory explanation of what the fuck this lil kid is doing with these hardened mercenaries:

Rick could of have totally canonically been around when Morty was a toddler theory

Okay so a lot of people claim that Morty Isn’t Rick (c-137 so we’re clear, the main guys) original Morty and the evidence they give for this often is in reference to that scene when we first had to deal with Evil Morty and upon scanning Rick’s brain finding memories of him interacting with a young/toddler Morty, people claim this isn’t possible since Morty is 14 and Rick was claimed to have been gone for over 20 years before returning, so imma tell you why IT IS VERY MUCH POSSIBLE now based on the new episode, Morty’s mind blowers.

djelibaebi  asked:

sorry, i read a post and didn't see your response later on, but i still think you're making assumptions about their ages? i mean there's nothing on how old taako is - if we assume he's the same age as Justin that would make him 37 in human - nearly the same age as Barry at the end of the stolen century. Even if that's not the case they're old enough to be employed at fantasy NASA thats got to show them as relatively old and mature, right?

This oversimplifies things, although I desperately wish it were that simple. Unfortunately now I have to show my extensive Fantasy Math. I know that IPRE isn’t simply “fantasy NASA” and has a different set of requirements for it’s members– Age not being one of them. 

Magnus is the key to calculating the ages of numerous other characters. 

  • Magnus:
    Travis states that Magnus is “29 or 30″ during TAZ’s main arcs, which span 2 years. The time between the start of Here There Be Gerblins and the end of TSC is 10 years.  

    29-12=17.

    This means that at the start and end of The Stolen Century, Magnus is canonically either 17 or 18 years old– with his permission in the bar during TSC counting as evidence pointing towards 18 (math based on numbers given to us by Travis in TTAZZ and during The Eleventh Hour). 

  • Taako and Lup:
    We know Taako has a younger physical and mental form than Magnus at the start of TAZ, so that places him quite a few years younger than Justin.

    Additionally, the parameters given for Taako’s age in canon are “older than 69″ and “a bit older than 100″ (math based on TTAZZ and scattered mentionings through the main TAZ arcs, mostly Here There Be Gerblins). 

    Using the most credible chart for converting 5e elf to human lifespans here, we can surmise that Taako and Lup would be between 110-150 plus 10 calendar years old at the start of HTBG, and around 20-25 years old in human years, which lines up with Justin’s statements regarding Taako’s age in past arcs.

  • Lucretia:
    Lucretia could have been anywhere from 16 to 26 at the start of The Stolen Century (based on Griffins scattered statements about her physical age of 40-50, TTAZZ and on details mentioned in The Suffering Game).

    We know she ages like a human as well because of TSG, putting her actual age at around 30, then doing the math we did on Magnus beforehand puts her within 5 years of his age either way.


So basically. There you have it? This is probably clumpy but I’ll clean it up as we’re presented with new information.

anonymous asked:

If age doesn't matter then you shouldn't care if someone under the age of 18 reads your fanfic. Age doesn't matter right?

There’s always got to be one out there, doesn’t there? You know you’re taking the comments out of context and twisting them to fit your agenda, right? “If age doesn’t matter…” Which usually means you are under 18 and you take offense to the fact that I don’t think you should read my smutty fan fiction. So you feel the need to come whine in my ask box. 

Here’s the thing, age doesn’t matter unless it does. Which if you’re under 18, it totally does. Whether you like it or not.

I’ve had this question before, and last time, I wasn’t satisfied with my answer. You’re going to get the LONG answer. I’m gonna get preachy and hop on my soapbox, so the rest of my answer is under the cut.

You know what I've decided?

It’s not fandoms that are the problem, its young fandoms.

And I don’t mean all new fandoms are terrible and that older fandoms have never had discourse, because that’s utter baloney. I mean, the doctor who fandom had huge fallouts over Rose leaving and tennant vs Smith when the 11th doctor came around, there were huge turf wars between hetalia and homestuck, The zutara vs kataang ship war is legendary, and even though I wasn’t in the fandom at the time, I know there was plenty of arguments over Edvy, Royed, and Edwin back when the original series came out. And a lot of them still have problems and always will. That’s what happens when you get a large group of people together to talk about a topic: discourse.
But the thing is, those fandoms don’t have as BIG of problems as they used to. I rarely hear about homestuck vs Hetalia anymore and the brotherhood vs 2003 fma argument has mostly boiled down to people arguing over what new members of the fandom should watch first(mostly). And although there is always going to be disagreement when an actor leaves on Doctor who, the time span of “Oh god this new person is going to ruin doctor who” has gotten shorter and shorter. Why? Because the fanbase matured. Literally. The fans that started watching doctor who as 12 and 13 year olds in 2005 are now well out of college. Fullmetal alchemist as an anime has been around for almost fifteen years. The fan base has grown up and gotten used to itself a little. Fandoms like Steven universe, the Voltron reboot, Undertale, and similar fandoms have been around for less than five years and for some, haven’t really been popular for half that time. The fanbases are mostly very young individuals who are still learning to be confident in who they are and use the shows as a way to express themselves. They haven’t let it really sink in yet that uniformity isn’t the only way to be happy in a fandom, and that not everyone has to agree with their head canons or ship their ships.
These fandoms aren’t toxic and need to just disappear. They literally just need to grow up. Admittedly, I don’t like Royed. It bothers me when I see romantic royed. Its ok not to like something, and a few years ago, I might have been really upset about it. But I’ve grow. I’ve accepted that other people ship it, and that’s that. Them enjoying it isn’t an attack directed at my ships or headcanons. It’s ok to be different. That’s just something people have to learn on their own in their own time. One day half tose kids in those newer fandoms are going to look back and think, “Wow. That was really, really petty of me to argue over a ship with this person. I feel stupid now because in the long run, it doesn’t matter. I still don’t like this ship, but it wasn’t worth that gigantic argument.”
Now does that excuse things like people sending death threats or telling people their a piece of shit over something as stupid as ships? No. Never. Keep calling out those people on their actions, because that is harassment and bullying, plain and simple. But don’t feel like its always going to be this way. Things will fizzle out eventually and people will grow up.

THIS JUST IN: THE KILLERS “RUN FOR COVER” WITH A RESTLESS URGENCY

The Killers hit the ground hard in “Run for Cover,” injecting a fresh and restless urgency into the air as they sing a matured life lesson and critique.

Run while you can, baby, don’t look back

A driving force; a forward momentum, pushing you onward with irresistible gravity. The second the guitar strums enter, you can tell this is going to be a big one. The Killers hit the ground hard in “Run for Cover,” injecting a fresh and restless urgency into the air as they sing a matured life lesson and critique of humanity. Are we perfect? No; we’re human – and to be human is to be flawed. Some of us are just more flawed than others – and sometimes, it’s better to duck out than to fight.

What have you gathered to report to your progenitors?
Are your excuses any better than your senator’s?
He held a conference and his wife was standing by his side
He did her dirty but no one died

“Run for Cover” is the second single off The Killers’ upcoming fifth studio album, Wonderful Wonderful (out September 22, 2017). Opening with fast guitar strums, the song grabs listeners through a charismatic layering of overdriven guitar and warm synth pads – a combination The Killers know only too well, but which still somehow manages to feel new. The full band works together to build an enormous storm of energy before Brandon Flowers has sung a single word, setting us up for a major release.

Flowers’ words are biting and critical in the first verse as he demands we consider our behaviors in the context of our values. “What have you gathered to report to your progenitors?” he asks. Our progeny is in essence our bloodline, and in begging us to consider our ancestors’ view of our present actions, The Killers immediately get us to thinking. “Are your excuses any better than your senator’s?” Referring to an extra-marital affair, the basic concept outlined here is that we’ve all got some form of blood on our hands; we’re all hypocrites, guilty of misguided actions and wrongdoing, misled or guided astray.

Flowers’ voice holds the melody while bass and drums hold the beat underneath him:

I saw Sonny Liston on the street last night
Black-fisted and strong
singing Redemption Song
He motioned me to the sky
I heard heaven and thunder cry

Wonderful Wonderful appears to be littered with various boxing references; Here, the pre-chorus references Sonny Liston, American professional boxer and world heavyweight champion who was knocked out in the first round by underdog Cassius Clay (who later became known as Muhammad Ali). The otherwise unbeatable fighter appears in a vision, singing Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” – and here, Flowers injects that charm we can always expect from him, employing Marley’s chorus melody as he sings those two words.

What do we take from this image of the fallen hero? Don’t give up, baby, no surrender? No; not this time. The Killers’ message is one of evasion in order to survive, rather than perseverance in spite of the odds:

Run for cover
Run while you can, baby,
don’t look back
You gotta run for cover
Don’t be afraid of the fear,
that’s a played out trap, man
You know you’re not the only one
And don’t look back, just run for cover

We feel the release as the chorus hits, The Killers imploring us to “Run for cover, run while you can…” Flowers tells us not to be “afraid of the fear,” essentially saying it’s okay to back down sometimes. This is a very different message than the one they might have delivered 12 years ago, while they were young. Now squarely in their mid-30s, The Killers are indisputable adults, and their music is maturing with them: Understanding when it’s right to fight and when it’s best to back down has adulthood written all over it.

Considering the band describes their forthcoming album as their “most sonically forward-thinking record,” a learned-lesson song like “Run for Cover” feels like a perfect fit. Earlier this year, Flowers told NME that “Run for Cover” originally came out of the band’s Day & Age sessions, making it at least eight years old – but he was never able to get the lyrics right. Nearly a decade later, Flowers was finally able to finish writing the song – thus lending it the unique energy of a transition track, balanced between the twenty-something poet with a glimmer in his eye, and the thirty-something lyricist still fighting to stay alive.

And how does one stay alive in this twisted world? By knowing when to throw in the towel and run for cover. That notion comes into play especially in the second verse and bridge, both of which were written more recently:

What are you waiting for, a kiss or an apology?
You think by now you’d have an A in toxicology
It’s hard to pack the car
when all you do is shame us
It’s even harder when the dirtbag’s famous

I saw my mother on the street last night
All pretty and strong, singing ‘the road is long’
I said ‘Momma I know you’ve tried’
But she fell on her knees and cried

The Killers sing of a mother crying, having been down the road before. It’s a road all must travel, full of pitfalls and cracks and obstacles that promise to confuse and obstruct – but to quote my favorite Dr. Suess poem:

You’ll get mixed up, of course, 
as you already know. 
You’ll get mixed up 
with many strange birds as you go. 
So be sure when you step. 
Step with care and great tact 
and remember that Life’s 
a Great Balancing Act. 
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

– “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!,” Dr. Suess

“Run for Cover” doesn’t pretend to give any widespanning life advice; instead, its message is wonderfully simple. In fact, aside from its vibrant strength, the wonderful thing about “Run For Cover” – an aspect that is sure to keep listeners coming back to this song again and again – is the vagueness of its lyrics! This song is not talking to anyone in particular – knowing Flowers, it’s probably a self-critique. But from an outsider’s perspective, the words carry so many different meanings, all of which feel appropriate in this day and age. The Killers could be warning us to stop pointing fingers when they could go right back at us; they could be saying to not trust the hand that feeds.

One has to love the topical insertion of fake news in the bridge lyric. That edge makes “Run for Cover” feel all the more relevant, adding extra flavor and depth to an already electric, spirited anthem. Knowing when to stand up and when to back down are critical to survival. They’re skills learned a little later in life – when you’re 25, you’re not thinking about how and when to strike; you just want to strike, and you want to do it now! But the Killers aren’t 25, and they’re not trying to be 25. A matured song for a growing band, “Run for Cover” captures the complexities of a changing world from older eyes that have seen both sides now, and are determined to make it through everything and anything – even if that means sometimes sitting out a few fights. Don’t look at “Run for Cover” as unconditional surrender; look at it as the clever tactic from a knowing mind.

sauwa  asked:

Don't get me wrong, but Kalsang bothers me a lot! He already has tattoos, and everybody knows they are just ment for true masters. Will Kalsang present itself super powerfull and wise in the storys?

Hi! :D So Jinora got her tattoos at 11 years old, and Aang got them at 12. Kalsang is 17 and has spent his entire life training, so I think it’s fair to say he’s a master by now. He has also developed an awesome airbending technique that definitely means he’s worthy of the title of Master. He won’t be particularly wise -  Jinora was still a moody teenager and Aang was still a child - I don’t think maturity and guru-like wisdom is a requirement for arrows.

Devendford Prep Part 32

I’m posting this already because I’m really not too sure if I will ever get around posting it. It’s not finished, but it’s an update.

Brett Fics (Parts 1-31)


You wake up Monday morning with a dreadful feeling, it was back to school, even werewolves had to go to class and do homework. Except you didn’t have the homework and had completely forgotten about it. You growl and fling the covers off your body and stand up, the phantom thought of needing to be sore after the past events flowed over you and you cautiously move your body. You stretch and then jump when you eyes read the time, you only had 30 minutes to get ready before heading out to school.
Arriving at school you park your car and slump in the front seat, it was going to take all of the energy and you had a lot, to get yourself out of the car and to face Erika. The fate happened with a knock on your window. Erika stood with two coffees in a trey and a warm smile across her beautiful face. A heavy sigh escapes your mouth and there is another knock at the window. You look up and shake you head, you weren’t in the mood to face Erika.
“Get out of the car, you’ll be late for class!” Erika says. “I got you a coffee because I’m sure you’re going to need it…or do werewolves not need caffein?”
You snatch your backpack and grab your keys and get out of the car. The sunlight was too bright for your liking. immediately the coffee is shoved into your free hand. Erika starts to walk away from the car, she pauses for a minute and turns around.
“You’re coming right?” Erika asks. “If you didn’t plan on going to class shouldn’t have driven here.”
