even saw isak on the first day of school and since he was always strategically placed in isak’s line of sight when isak started noticing him, even probably followed him around and sat close to him whenever he could. this means that he saw all the little things no one else noticed. he saw isak yawning and scratching his nose when it was too damn early for anyone to be fully awake. he saw isak stretch his arms above his head and make that high pitched whiny noise. he saw isak hum the postman pat theme song while waiting for the boy squad to show up at lunch. he saw isak struggle with his locker and completely destroy his books every single day. he saw all these stupid things people do when they think no one’s looking and he was completely mesmerized by it
I’m almost too lazy to make this post because God it’s just so self explanatory but my loyalty to Temari runs too deep so here goes:
They did exactly what I called they were gonna do and made her an over aggressive nagging house wive. This is why I complained over and over again three years ago when I saw they had moved her to Konoha because I KNEW someway somehow they were going to subject her character to this. They want her to be Yoshino 2.0 even though that’s NEVER been who she is because “lmao get it Shikamaru is just like his dad! Parallels!!”. They don’t take the time to think about how her character would actually react because none of that matters now - she exists solely to be Shikamaru’s wife.
Some people are crying “abuse!” at what she did but I don’t really want to go there tbh. It’s very clear that in the Naruto universe things we find abusive are just par for the course. Calling out Temari in this instance would require we call out basically ever other female character which is not realistic. Domestic violence in Naruto is always played for laughs which is obviously fucked up but not something I think it’s fair to fault the characters for as we’re not intended to see it as abusive (even though realistically it is). No, what I really take issue with is the fact that being an overbearing and strict mother/wife is basically all Temari is given to do.
This woman was born in one of the most fucked up situations of any character we see. He father was a walking human disaster, her mother was dead, and her youngest brother had a nasty habit of slaughtering anyone who looked at him the wrong way. She has always been strong and confident but throughout the series she softens considerably as she learns caring is not a weakness. She is a better diplomat than either of her brothers and remains calm and collected in even the tensest of situations. Her dynamic with Shikamaru has always been one of mutual respect and understanding which is what makes their relationship work so well (and IMO better than any of the canon relationships we got). Yes, Temari is a take no shit kind of person who probably WOULD chastise her son for his pitiful behavior - but not in the way we’re shown. In Boruto her parenting method basically amounted to “I’m just going to hit you and intimidate you until you get the picture and ultimately just end up listening to your cooler nicer wiser dad.” She doesn’t actually say anything of significance to Shikadai at all - that is reserved entirely for Shikamaru as he’s the influential one in their sons life. Temari is just there to be the ol’ ball-and-chain ~what a drag~ mom whose only dominion is the house she is confined to. THEN there’s the fact that Temari refusing to make dinner inevitably meant neither Shikamaru nor Shikadai could eat - as if a grown man could not make his own dinner and HAD to have his wife do it because it’s her domestic ~duty~. This is extra and dramatic but it actually makes me sick that they’re doing this to her. After everything she went through she would have something worthwhile to add to the conversation other than “bah you’re too easy on him I’m going to withhold meals to prove a point!!!”. She doesn’t treat her brothers like this and they’re consistently shown to value her opinion because her opinion is worth hearing.
Temari played a crucial role in Suna politics prior to the end of the series. She sat on the council and came with Gaara to all the kage summits/meetings. She was one of the best kunoichi in the series just brimming with potential and strength and ferocity. During the war I began to get annoyed with how much they were making her revolve around Shikamaru’s character because after a certain point basically all her dialogue was in relation to him. That’s when I knew things were about to take a hard left turn for shits-ville and boy was I right. In chapter 700 ALL we see her doing is sitting in a house chastising her son and serving her brothers tea before they head out to a kage meeting without her. We don’t get any indication that she’s still affiliated with Suna, hell we don’t even get any indication that she’s still a ninja. In the boruto manga/movie she doesn’t interact with her siblings ONCE and is not with them in the pit with all the other Kage/advisors. I was happy to see she still had her fan but other than that I left highly unimpressed. Now in the anime she is ONCE AGAIN pictured in a house, serving people drinks and nagging away as if that’s all she’s good for anymore. I know it was played as a joke but that’s exactly what makes me so mad - her character has become nothing more than a trope meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator. The nagging housewive angle truly is the lowest hanging fruit but studio peirrot really could not resist could they.
Nevermind the fact that it would have been way funnier had they subverted the whole “why did you marry such a strict woman” thing by having Shikadai side with his mom instead, saying something to the effect of “why did you marry such an unmotivated slacker”. Can we stop treating Temari like she’s just an overly aggressive loaded gun that’s just one mistep away from going off. I mean I genuinely love Shikatema but I do not think the Boruto anime understands Shikatema. Part of me still wishes they just hadn’t got together because they don’t actually feel like “them” when they’re portrayed like this. No one is being respected as a character.
Anyway all this to say I’m basically done with the Boruto anime now. I might still watch the next couple of episodes because curiosity is gonna get the better of me but emotionally I have severed all connections. It just comes down to the fact that I cannot handle them so grossly mischaracterizing characters that I have loved since I was 11 years old. I actually don’t mind the new gen when they’re on their own but every damn time they show one of the original characters they manage to fuck them up in some way. We see it with Temari, with Naruto, with Yamato, with Sakura. Hell I can’t stand Sasuke and even I’m mad about what they did to him post chapter 699. I am never going to like the new gen characters more than the original cast so if watching Boruto means seeing them get completely decimated then I’m not gonna watch it. Simple as that. Naruto being an absent father is the worst crime but I have no doubt they’ll continue to top that in future episodes.
wanna see my favourite thing they censored in the eng ver
in ep 21, when Candy is looking for Lys’s parents, she comes across Cas and Rosa that are kind of arguing when Cas says this to Rosa :
and Rosa gets SUPER offended… which doesn’t really make sense ? Cas isn’t saying anything bad here, it’s just a fact. so I checked the french ver to see what he was originally saying… and what he says is actually much more… suggestive in french than in english.
but at the same time, I KNEW that the ~suggestive english dialogue~ existed and not this piece of crap. I KNEW I read an english ver that was not censored. So I looked for it… and gave up when I couldn’t find it on yt. maybe it was just my imagination ?
then I finally found it, when I was cleaning my files. it’s a screen that comes from tumblr apparently. so here is what Cas originally says before they decided to censor him (??) :
I still can’t believe I was Straight™ for like fourteen years, I look back on it and just ??? How??? Child, did you never see a girl? And nonbinary folks are like legit ethereal deities, how did you survive not knowing you were pansexual how
how they dare make Gaston a kind, not really pushy person who just wants to win girl’s heart. He doesn’t mock Belle for reading. He actually tries to understand her unlikely to the others. A character who went to war and now suffers from PTSD. Who just wants to live a peacful, happy life with a wife by his side. How they fucking dare do that and not expect that I would fall from him,
Author’s Note: This is the first smut I’ve written that’s actually one of Dyl’s characters, and I love Stuart so I picked him. I got the idea from my best bb Caitlin. Thanks to @dumbass-stilinski for reading it over, proofreading, and lurking around when I was writing it last night. Hope you all enjoy!
I’ve known Stuart for literally most of my life and ever since he’s left for college we haven’t had the chance to meet up and see each other. A lot of people don’t really know this, but Stuart was ultimately the one who took my virginity. A few days after that night, we couldn’t stand being away from each other, and managed to find our way into his bed again. That night, he made me cum so many times that I lost count. They way his hands, lips, and tongue felt on my warm skin it easily became addictive, especially that wonderful cock of his. For not having sex that many times he really knows what he’s doing and I’m loving it, so much that he’s ruined it for other guys. After so many times that we had fucked we decided to become friends with benefits, none of us declared the whole “no strings attached” rule, because I’ve honestly had a crush on him since we were kids, I just don’t know how he feels about me. It’s been about four or five months since me and Stuart have fucked and I’m going through major withdrawals.
please imagine the students that make deals for useful but completely irrelevant stuff, like idk some glittery nail polish for never stubbing your toe again, one backscratch for another (the student got unlucky and received theirs from something with very sharp claws) etc
My favorite kind of deal is the almost totally pointless kind honestly. No heartbreak, no fortunes made or crushed, just, like … your tea will always be the right temperature no matter how long you forget it, and in exchange you’ll always oversleep your alarm by five minutes. Or you give up your ability to whistle in exchange for always being able to find the coolest things in a thrift store clothing rack. It’s half just to say you’ve Done The Thing and half practice deal-making just in case.
lucas and max totally grow up to be the friends to sit in the background and talk shit about everyone else with each other and say they’re “too good for drama” but as someone gets the tiniest bit confrontational they’re on their feet throwing fists
2x09 AND 2x10 THEORY (more just Malec)
Personally I think Magnus and Alec fight in 2x09, maybe about Alec helping clary with dark magic, I don’t know. But I do think there’s going to be some tension between them (unfortunately) which is gonna cause either Alec to storm off, or be told to leave and go home by Magnus, ugh. So Alec definitely ends up in the institute which of course with Alec’s luck has a massive demon attack in 2x10. Somehow Magnus finds out, maybe Dot tell Valentines plans or something on clary’s phone that their both looking at, bc honestly Magnus looks crushed. Anyway Alec and Izzy, just assuming here, will be stuck in the institute. Magnus is gonna feel guilty and blame himself or others determining how mad or sad he is for making or cause Alec to leave, Inevitably putting him in danger…. so that sucks
All in all the mid season finales gonna be a shit show that’s gonna make us cry and we need to be here for each other bc I’m not stable enough for this angst.
PS: I so see Dot saying something on the lines of “you’ve changed” or “ who’s risking their life now for a shadowhunter” and I’m ok with it.
look. u can say i’m being unrealistic or too hopeful or tell me i’m just in denial of the truth when i say macdennis is and could be an explicit thing, but. the facts are these: on the two occasions that mac has come out and accepted himself as a gay man, this has been immediately followed by acknowledgement and acceptance of his feelings for dennis specifically.
mac went from being in the closet to embracing gay stereotypes and fantasising about living with dennis in a matter of hours. mac came out again, and literally one episode later he was having “erotic nightmares” where dennis seduced him, and in the episode after THAT, mac got dennis a present for valentine’s day.
it’s not a coincidence that after accepting his sexuality, mac is more open about his love and attraction for dennis. it’s not a one off thing where dennis is there and happens to be the object of mac’s affections. mac’s love for dennis is consistently highlighted, and as much as i might be another hopeful queer who just wants mac and dennis to be together, that doesn’t change the facts about mac’s character, or the way his feelings for dennis in a romantic and even sexual capacity are made known to us.
I found your 'experience with the ladies' ranking for nuest and bts hella interesting. Could you do the same for Wanna one?? 😊😊
Hey~ Thank you and yeah sure. Keep in mind that this is just my opinion, so if you think something else or the ranking would be another, you can always message me. ^^
WANNA ONE -
Ong Seungwoo - out of the members of Wanna One, Seungwoo is definitely the one with the most experience; I remember him saying that he always lets girls talk to him informally and he seems very relaxed around girls so if he likes someone he would just go for it and confess; he pings as someone who would be more into casual dating or small flings rather than a long-term relationship.Also, in all his pre-debut photos he is surrounded by girls and I’m guessing he is very popular among females.
Kang Daniel - now, Daniel I am sure he had some girlfriends, I mean he is so handsome and kind to everyone it would be impossible for him not to date. He is pretty chill and laid-back and with his dancer background I am sure he attracted lots of females. I think that even if he wouldn’t flirt, girls will just come to him and do it. But even though he has experience in the dating field, I think he would rather have a serious relationship as opposed to just seeing someone and having an on & off type of relationship.
Hwang Minhyun - now, I said about Minhyun how he always says he doesn’t have any experience and I don’t believe any of that still. As I said, I don’t think he is particularly interested in having a girlfriend, but if it happens then he will just go with it. Definitely wants to have a long-term relationship as opposed to flings.
Ha Sungwoon - he is such an adorable being so it would be hard for girls not to fall for his charm. He is so cute and genuine with everything he does and I feel like he is someone who falls for girls easily. He has dated before and all that, but somehow I don’t think his relationships lasted very long, there’s just something that makes me think that, I can’t pin it but it’s there.
Yoon Jisung - Jisung is a bit ambiguous to me, to be honest; because he is slightly older I wanna say that he has a lot of experience, but I don’t think that’s the case. He has his fair share of experience with girls, but I think because he is so funny and kind girls were often mistake him for a best friend, rather than someone they would want as a girlfriend
Kim Jaehwan - he pings as someone that has had girlfriends before, but not too many. Just like one or two. He is in the middle because he has some experience, but I think he would look for a serious relationship rather than just flings. Just like Minhyun, he would much rather focus on his career and work rather than finding a girlfriend.
Lai Guan Lin - he seems the cool type girls always fall for. I think he is pretty popular among girls and I think he may have a little experience. Like dating someone casually or just a mutual crush. Honestly, I am 100% sure he gets lots of love confessions from girls and since he is at an age where he would want to date, he may do it/have done it quite recently.
Park Jihoon - for the maknae line it’s pretty hard to rate them honestly because they are all fairly young and inexperienced. Jihoon pings me as the type to like people easily, but be too awkward to talk to his crush and just stare from a distance. He is this up on the list because I think that even if he’s awkward, girls will be the ones to flirt with him. So he may have had a fling or two before, but nothing very serious.
Lee Daehwi- I’ve seen him interact with Somi before and he looked so cute and not one bit shy. Even if she’s just a friend, I think their friendship helped Daehwi feel a bit more confident and relaxed around girls. Although he doesn’t have much experience, I think he would do really well once he finally gets a girlfriend.
Bae Jinyoung - since he is still really young and awkward around girls, I don’t think he had a girlfriend before, maybe just one of those 3 days relationship when you’re really young and stupid. I think he will just have lots of one-sided crushes and not tell the other person he fell for her because he is afraid of rejection.
Park Woojin - lastly is this awkward turtle doesn’t have any experience. He has always been so focused on his dancing and started training at a very young age that I don’t think he ever had time to date. And besides the lack of time, he wouldn’t know how to act around girls and will be a shy mess.
