Mary and The Witch’s Flower Premieres in American Theaters on January 18th 2018 (Nationwide January 19th)

GKIDS and Fathom Events announced on Wednesday that they will premiere Studio Ponoc and Hiromasa Yonebayashi’s Mary and The Witch’s Flower (Mary to Majo no Hana) film in U.S. theaters on Thursday, January 18. Regular screenings will start nationwide on January 19.

The premiere event will have two screenings: the English dub will screen at 7:00 p.m. local time and the English-subtitled version will screen at 8:00 p.m. local time. The screenings will include an exclusive interview with filmmakers and a commemorative item. Fathom Events will post a list of theaters when it opens ticket sales on Friday.

The film opened in Japan on July 8 and has earned 3 billion yen (US$28 million).

Hiromasa Yonebayashi, who directed Studio Ghibli’s Arrietty and When Marnie Was There, directed Mary and The Witch’s Flower, and also penned the script for the film alongside Riko Sakaguchi, who wrote the screenplay for Isao Takahata’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. Takatsugu Muramatsu (When Marnie Was There) composed the music. Yoshiaki Nishimura is credited as producer. The staff page on the film’s website further noted that many former staff from Studio Ghibli joined Ponoc in the film’s production.

The BFG’s Ruby Barnhill stars in the dub as the titular character Mary, and Kate Winslet (Titanic, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Mountain Between Us) plays school chairwoman Madam Mumblechook. Jim Broadbent, who co-starred with Winslet in Iris, plays Mumblechook’s colleague Doctor Dee. Other cast members include Ewen Bremner, Lynda Baron, Rasmus Hardiker, Teresa Gallagher, Morwenna Banks, and Louis Ashbourne Serkis.

The film is based on Mary Stewart’s book The Little Broomstick. Studio Ponoc scouted locations in Shropshire, U.K., the setting of the original novel. The Japanese version stars Hana Sugisaki (When Marnie Was There, live-action Blade of the Immortal) as Mary and Ryunosuke Kamiki (The Secret World of Arrietty’s Sho, your name.’s Taki) as Peter.

Okay so humans are weird. But how?

Let’s think about the masses. Music? Try sound waves that are blasting the delicate tissues of one of their senses, they can even hear better than most species, as if it wasn’t enough of an insult! They appear to respond to certain sounds and disregard others, so far no largely noticeable pattern has been found. Some adult, nurturing specimens call this specific occurrence ‘selective hearing’ in their young offspring.

Physical wellbeing? Hah! Try torture. Daily, many humans injure their muscles lifting considerable weight and running large distances for physical fitness in the civilian sectors, nevermind the military requirements. Some military requirements have need of the recruit to loft their own body weight - and perhaps more - over two hundred times.

Speaking of physical fitness - healing. It seems to vary between the individual, their accumulation of genetics, and their physical wellbeing. Depending on the variables, humans can survive the removal of major organs, limbs, even their soft, squishy exoskeleton (note: this is actually an organ that prevents a large majority of external bacteria and infections in muscles and generally vital tissue). Some humans will peel and eat their skin and soft nails, or just pluck their twenty extra appendages (note: hands-fingers feet-toes) if they are anxious or in an extremely testing situation. While it is not encouraged, it is not a large hazard.

Eating habits? It has been recently discovered that human beings are actually herbivores that adapted to gain nutrients from flesh. A portion of the population deny eating certain foods (such as meat, animal products, etc) for religion, personal preference, and other reasons. Apparently, there is an odd share of control over food. Instead of distributing food everywhere, equally, certain higher-ups prefer to keep food to themselves while others share it. Humans seem to argue on this, and it doesn’t seem to be fully resolved.

Behaviour? Adolescents can hold grudges well into their adulthood. All of the species seem to be capable of disliking someone or something and acting against them, despite general outlook or behaviour. Some display this behaviour more than others. There appear to be enough of the human population to have a large diversity in behaviour, melanin, intelligence, preference, and a variety of other things. (Note: Terran population was last counted to be seven billion. The planet has estimated to only hold ten to eleven billion max, so expect them to be venturing into unexplored territory in search of resources soon).

Verbal conversation? Terrans have a total of six thousand five hundred languages, and are still capable of communicating across their planet in mere fractions of their daily rotation (Note: this is…frightening. This scout shall endeavor to explore less…advanced races). Translators are something to be feared, as each language can have different sounds, number of letters, different way to spell and say a certain sound, different words in certain situations, and a dizzying amount of information used without thinking of it. Words can be abbreviated and can be stressed to give a different meaning to the recipient. Sarcasm is very hard to explain. This scout will leave the…troublesome explanation to Scout 54P1. If asked, please recite this; ‘the idea of Sarcasm (that is saar-cah-suh-mm) is foreign to most races. Please excuse it’.

Senses. Human senses (taste, touch, smell/scent, hearing, sight) are fairly advanced for a species who has domesticated most of their planet’s species. Please refer to Scout 73B2 for a deeper explanation, as I have no idea where to begin.

And military? Forget the idea. Military organizations regularly converse with others, sharing Intel and general knowledge, a professional form of gossip.

In general? Human beings/Terrans are not to be trifled with, despite their modernization. Sheer determination, stubbornness produced by hormones and protective instinct, and dulled senses will kill you, take caution.

Why’s space black instead of pink?

●﹏● OK, let’s go. First, in relation to pink color, this depends on where the starlight would reflect, for example: “Why is the sky blue here on Earth?”. The daytime sky is blue because the sunlight nearby, beats Earth’s atmosphere molecules and disperses in all directions. The blue color of the sky is the result of this dispersal process. At night, when the part of the Earth is far from the Sun, the space looks black, because there is no source of bright light near, like the Sun, to be spread. If you were on the moon, which has no atmosphere, the sky would be black both at night and day.

So the black color usually signals the absence of light, and most of the universe is empty, the outer space looks black. However if the universe is full of stars, why does not the light from all of them add up to make the whole sky bright all the time? It turns out that if the universe was infinitely large and infinitely old, then we would expect the night sky to be bright from the light of all those stars. Every time you look in space you would be looking at a star. Yet we know from experience that space is black! This paradox is known as the Olbers’ Paradox. It is a paradox because of the apparent contradiction between our expectation that the night sky is bright and our experience that it is black.

Many different explanations have been put forward to resolve Olbers’ Paradox. The best solution at present is that the universe is not infinitely old; it is somewhere around 13,8 billion years old. That means we can only see objects as far as the light can travel in 13,8 billion years. The light from stars farther than that has not yet had time to reach us and can not contribute to making the sky bright.

This is an artist’s concept of the metric expansion of space, where space (including hypothetical non-observable portions of the universe) is represented at each time by the circular sections. Note on the left the dramatic expansion (not to scale) occurring in the inflationary epoch, and at the center the expansion acceleration. The scheme is decorated with WMAP images on the left and with the representation of stars at the appropriate level of development. Credit: NASA 

Another reason that the sky may not be bright with the visible light of all the stars is because the light source is moving away from you, the wavelength of that light is longer the light from stars that are moving away from us will become shifted towards red, and may shift so far that it is no longer visible at all. (Note: You hear the same effect when an ambulance passes you, and the pitch of the siren gets lower as the ambulance travels away from you; this effect is called the Doppler Effect).

chelonianmobile  asked:

On the topic of greens, I buy bagged spinach and it's pretty much rotting before I get it home. Any way to stop that? Should I take it out of the bag and dry it? Is it possible to freeze it?

It is possible to freeze spinach, but the crystalization process will probably make it nasty for a salad. 

Yes, take it out of the bag and spread it out and pat it dry. Use a clean bag to store the spinach again - same thing with the lettuce, shove a paper towel in there to grab extra moisture. 

On a similar note, if you want your strawberries to last a billion times longer and not fucking mold in 2 days, when you get them home, rinse them in a super diluted vinegar solution.  1 cup of white or apple cider vinegar and 8 cups of water. (apple cider vinegar has a more distinct taste imo) -  

Rinse them again with water, rinse the CONTAINER in the vinegar solution, then water, and then store in the fridge. 

Makes strawberries last several weeks instead of like, 2 days. Fragile tasty assholes. 

Krabby Patty Secret Formula - Revealed!

Hey guys! So today, I will be doing a theory dedicated to our favourite aquatic character from our childhood, SpongeBob Square Pants! Before I start, I have a quick notice to begin with. Due to my hectic workload and exams, I won’t be posting regularly for the next two-to-three weeks. You should probably expect two or three theories per week at minimum. I’m really sorry about this and also, this is my third attempt to upload this because the Tumblr Gods are not on my side today. ): But anyways, thanks for all the love and support I received! So, lets get back to the theory!

Note: My third and final attempt to upload this theory and rewriting this from scratch. Wish me good luck!

Note #2: My fourth time now. Luckily half of it got saved… I am losing the will to live.

SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. The series chronicles the adventures and endeavors of the title character and his various friends in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom. The series’ popularity has made it a media franchise, as well as the highest rated series to ever air on Nickelodeon, and the most distributed property of MTV Networks. As of 2015, the media franchise has generated $12 billion in merchandising revenue for Nickelodeon. It has gotten so popular that in 2011, a newly described species of fungi, Spongiforma squarepantsii, was named after the cartoon’s title character.

A Krabby Patty is a popular burger served at the Krusty Krab. It is the best-known food at the Krusty Krab, and the most famous burger in Bikini Bottom. It’s so popular that the shows protagonist, Plankton, tries to steal it in order for vengeance on Mr. Krab (his former friend) and to improve the restaurants success. Despite his noteable efforts, he is constantly thwarted by SpongeBob and his friends!

After many minutes of research, I have created the “Ultimate Krabby Patty Secrect Formula!”

Ingredients:

And, that’s the ever so “secret” formula. One ingredient that’s to be rumoured in the recipe is “King Neptune’s Poisedon Powder.“  But, what if I tell you that that’s not the secret ingredient of a Krabby Patty? What if there is no secrect ingredient and that the whole idea of this was devised by Mr. Krabs to distract Plankton.

Think about it. Mr. Krabs is a money-loving man who won an award for being the “Cheapest Crab of the Year” award. Why would he want to spend extra money on an item so rare that it has never been mentioned (not once) in the show? Plus, it has the name “King Neptune’s” so it is probably going to be expensive. If King Neptune would want to maximise his royalities he would get (in which he would), he would set the ingredient a higher price and we know that Mr. Krabs “loves” buying things. In fact, he sleeps with money under his mattress. No joke!

(I hate playing catch up with my life. after this gets posted, I got to do two more theories - the struggles.)

  • Person: So, who's your favorite superhero?
  • Me: *shrugs* I dunno, it's a tie between all of Batman's kids I guess.
  • Person: Wait, Batman has kids???
  • Friends: Uh oh...
  • Person: What? What did I do??
  • Me: *starts smiling excitedly and shaking*
  • Friends: You shouldn't have done that!
  • *ground trembles and things start falling off the shelves*
  • Person: Wha-what's happening??
  • Me: *Takes a deep breath*
  • Friends: NOOOOOO!!!!!!
  • Me: *pulls out entire binders of notes and ten billion dollars worth of comic books* Have I ever told you about the Batfamily?
  • *world explodes from extreme levels of nerd*
Beautiful proofs (#1) : Divergence of the harmonic series

The harmonic series are as follows:

And it has been known since as early as 1350 that this series diverges. Oresme’s proof to it is just so beautiful.

Now replace ever term in the bracket with the lowest term that is present in it. This will give a lower bound on S1.

Clearly the lower bound of S1 diverges and therefore S1 also diverges.
But it interesting to note that of divergence is incredibly small: 10 billion terms in the series only adds up to around 23.6 !

Getting to know you was the most wonderful adventure…
It was like suddenly discovering the love of my life and my best friend all in one. There were moments when I was almost afraid that this couldn’t be real…. That YOU couldn’t be real… Everything about you was just too perfect and we were so compatible it just didn’t seem possible.
But I surrendered to the feeling… let it take me where I knew I was fated to go and I’m so glad that I did because it allowed me to get to know you and in getting to know you I was getting to know myself …. because YOU are other half of me.
It was discovering new things about myself I never knew and remembering things about myself I thought I’d lost like my childlike joy and ability to laugh loudly and love deeply.
Finding you brought a magic and a joy into my life unlike anything I have ever known…. and there is not a day that goes by I am not grateful that on a planet of over 7 billion people, I was lucky enough to find you.

Just on another note, i actually love how diverse The Good Place is. And it isn’t just tokenistic like the one black guy who fits the diversity expectations but these characters are defying the social stereotypes placed on them by Hollywood and the western world.

- Chidi is an intelligent black professor of ethics and moral. Not some deliquent as the media portrays black males to be

- Tahani is a successful Pakistani Muslim woman who has raised billions of dollars and was even a model. She’s not whitewashed or deemed less beautiful than the other characters just because her skin tone. She isn’t some “Cheap Indian” who’s a tightass but instead raises money. And most importantly she isn’t pinned as a terrorist, but a kind and welcoming woman

- Jason is an aspiring Fillipino DJ and enjoys EDM music. He isn’t immediately stereotyped as some smart Asian with only Law or Medicine as his career options. He’s breaking stereotypes that Asians only care about one thing, which is study

Idk if its only me but cudos to The Good Place for creating such a diverse show that breaks racial stereotypes!

Star Wars Atlas (2009)
→ Alderaan, Corellia, Coruscant, Dathomir, Felucia, Geonosis, Mandalore, Mustafar, Naboo, Tatooine
→ Interesting notes: Population, % of species, length of day/year, languages, size of planet

→ I found it helpful to note the populations especially–many planets only had a few million (or less! Tatooine only has 200,000 people living on it!), others have a few billion, Coruscant has a trillion.
→ While no longer strictly canon (as of April 25, 2014) it still gives a solid idea of how big a given planet is, how sparsely or densely populated it is, and what kind of species live there.  Especially helpful if you’re trying to figure out the background of a world when writing fic!

Monthly Gem Challenge: Nuummite

Just like last month, we’re giving you an unusual gem and challenging you to design a gemsona based on it! You can go as in-depth with your character designs as you’d like: come up with their personality and backstory, or just show what you think they’d look like. They can even be a fusion if you prefer; the choice is up to you!

This month’s gem is Nuummite! (If you already have a Nuummite gemsona, they can still participate, this month is for all Nuummite gemsonas, old or new!)

Gem Meaning: (Note: You can use the gem’s meaning to help you come up with ideas for your gemsona, but it’s not a requirement). This is a gem of luck and intuition, and it has strong ties to the element of earth. It’s said to be a protective stone, and that it brings forth an individual’s inner-power (and supposedly, magic), which has earned it some unique names… 

Cool Facts: This gem is also known as the “Magician’s Stone” or “The Philosopher’s Stone”. That’s right, it really does exist! (Well, sort of). It’s one of the oldest minerals (some say 3 billion years old!) Variations of the stone can have gold flecks (as shown above), or blue (see below), and some Nuummite only have white speckles, making the gem look like a piece of the starry night sky. 

Want to know more about Nuummite to help get you inspired? Check out our “Gem Meaning Resource” page for other sites where you can look up information about this month’s gem! Need help getting the gem’s color palette? Check out these resources!

Please tag your responses to the challenge as #MGC August or drop it in the  #GEMSONA AUGUST PROMPT tag so we can reblog them here!

part two of my magical royal bangtan au!!! thanks to everyone who said they wanted to read more of it,,,,,,im blessed!!!!! (here) is part one, id suggest reading it first so you get the jist of the story !!~~~

  • so you’re the oracle who is going to foretell if there will be a war between your kingdom and it’s rival kingdom 
  • and wizard yoongi drops you off (well,,,,,,,i mean he gets paid for finding you so you could consider it as you being delivered but like,,,,,let’s just not get into that ,,,,,,,) to the three princes: jin, jimin, and jungkook
  • and they’re like you have to marry one of us because the act of marriage will help you see the future and what we should do in order to beat the rival kingdom 
  • and it’s like you have to do it for the sake of your kingdom and country but you turn to yoongi and you’re like “i don’t really wan-” but he’s like “you gotta.” 
  • and so on your first day,,,,,,,,,,in the palace,,,,,,,,you’re surprised when servants are at your bedside when you wake up and people are giving you these garments to wear that look like they could pay for your parents taxes for the next 4 years???? and your breakfast options are literally a whole table of imported coffee, truffles, fruits, you name it??????
  • and it’s all too much to handle and prince jimin is kind enough to try and shoo off some of the staff because all these people and all these questions is visibly making you uncomfortable
  • and the prince is like “i know it’s hard,,,,,,,,but,,,,,,,,,,,please,,,,,,,” and you’re like “i don’t understand whats going on? i don’t even know IF im the oracle!!! why can’t you three just discuss peace options with the other kingdom”
  • and jimin is like “we wish we could, but ever since,,,,,,,,,,,an incident in our past,,,,,,,,,”
  • and you’re like ?????? and jimin sighs and looks around and is like “come with me, you can’t tell prince jin i told you about this or else he’ll nag my ear off!”
  • and so you follow prince jimin into the library and up a spiral staircase until you’re down some dusty aisle of expensive looking leather-bound books
  • and jimin is like “last year, we were drafting up a peace treaty with the other kingdom. the three sons of that kingdom, namjoon, taehyung and hoseok, had always been in competition with us because,,,,,,,well we’re princes it’s our job to try and up-one each other for the sake of our countries glory,,,,,but finally our parents wanted to put that behind us. unfortunately,,,,,,,,,,”
  • jimin trails off but you’re like “unfortunately????” and jimin sighs and he’s like “unfortunately,,,,,the conference was disrupted by some kind of ambush attack. we believe it was a wizard, but we aren’t sure. they flew in on their broom and had went straight for the other kingdom’s king with a sword, but prince taehyung had blocked it and well,,,,,,,,,,,,he managed to protect his father but,,,,,,,,,,got scarred in the struggle. the scar runs across his left eye and well after that,,,,,,,,the brothers blamed up on hiring the wizard even though we didn’t and now we expect that??? they’re going to wage a war-”
  • jimin doesn’t get to finish because you both hear the huge door open and jin’s voice call out from the floor below
  • jimin pulls you alongside him and is like “oh, we were just talking brother!!! i was showing them all the books you and father have collected - we’ll come down!!!!”
  • but the whole time you’re walking with them back to the dining hall you can’t help but think about those other three brothers,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,taehyung?,,,,,,,,,,hoseok,,,,,,,,,,and namjoon,,,,,,,,,

–> Namjoon

  • is the only brother who doesn’t actually bare a grudge against the other kingdom. he’s way more interested in putting effort into bettering his own country 
  • enjoys political discussions with older officials and meets up with professors at the local universities and famous writers and always has a notebook to jot notes down
  • wears glasses when he isn’t at formal events and all the servants think he looks really cute in them but no one dares to tell him because his resting face is really serious and they aren’t sure how to read his emotions
  • tripped over a billion dollar ancient statue once
  • you see him at the first ever meeting the two kingdoms hold because even if there might be a war there is things like trading and country barriers that have to be discussed and namjoon, being the most level-headed of the three is always sent to talk to jin
  • and you’re not supposed to be eavesdropping on their conversation but you really REALLY wanna see this brother from the other kingdom to learn more about them
  • but the problem is namjoon gets up halfway through the mediation and ends up walking down the halls to the bathroom and you’re like ok ok hide,,,,,,but you make a bunch of noise and namjoon stops in his tracks and you’re like shIT from where you’re standing behind the plant
  • and you think it’s ok,,,,,he won’t find me
  • but then you hear a deep voice go “hey” and you’re like OH GOD
  • and you get so scared you turn to fast and knock the whole plant over and you’re like scurrying to try and get it back up but there’s dirt everywhere and namjoon is watching you and is like “,,,,,,,um are you? a servant?”
  • but then he sees what you’re wearing and he’s like “wait,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,are you the oracle?” 
  • and you stand up straight and put your hands up and you’re like nO NO NO 
  • but it’s obvious he doesn’t believe you and he’s like “is it true? you can predict the future?” and you’re like nO I CANT I DONT KNOW UH
  • and namjoon looks so fascinated and he’s like “i need to know more,,,,,”
  • and you’re like “i ????? don’t know?????? isn’t jin - prince jin - waiting for you????”
  • and namjoon is like right right,,,,,,,,,,
  • and you think that’s the last you’ll see of him but you overhear at the dinner table that namjoon is staying in the palace since jin still needs to speak with him for some more time and jungkook makes a face but jin is like bEHAVE
  • and the worse, more curious part of you decides to see if it’s true - if he’s really staying here
  • and it is. you find him exactly where you expect,,,,,,,,,in the astronomy tower that’s barely ever visited and you want to just walk away but you ,,,,, can’t for some reason
  • and you’re like “um - hi we met before-” and namjoon basically runs down the steps to you and he’s like “the oracle!!!!!!! amazing, i knew wizards and magical beings still existed but -”
  • and he touches your wrist and lifts it up to examine it and you’re like erm what are you doing
  • and he’s like sorry, ive never met someone whose blood is laced with magic and you’re like ??????/
  • but you think he’s,,,,,,,,,,interesting and he doesn’t seem at all interested in the war like everyone else and you talk get to talking and you tell namjoon of your dreams and prophecies
  • and he’s like amazed by you
  • and namjoon ends up staying for a week and a half him and jin have to go over so much and every night you met in the tower and talk
  • and when he has to go,,,,,,,,,you ask if you’ll see him again and he’s like i don’t think i can come back here for a while,,,,,,,,,but when the wedding happens -
  • and you look down because,,,,,,,you don’t want the wedding to happen
  • and namjoon can see this clearly on your face
  • which immediately makes his heart turn and suddenly he’s getting marching back inside to where jin and the others are and he’s like “you know, you don’t need the oracle to be married to let them have their vision.” 
  • and jin is like “what? how do you know-” and namjoon puts a hand around you and you’re like !!!!!!! and the other three are like “GUAR-”
  • but namjoon is like “you’re saying the ‘power’ of marriage is enough but there is no power in marriage. maybe,,,,,maybe a kiss will be enough,,,,,”
  • and everyone is shocked and namjoon turns to you and he’s like “it’s science, romantic physically gestures,,,,,,,,,increase endorphin’s,,,,,,,so,,,,,,,”
  • and you, who totally doesn’t wanna get married, reaches up to hold his face and bring your lips to his,,,,,,,,,and it’s like an electricity runs through you
  • and you can see the vision, the vision of peace - the vision of jin and namjoon laughing alongside each other and you excitedly pull back and exclaim there won’t be any war!!!!1
  • while namjoon needs to adjust his glasses and still his heart because WOAH you’re a good kisser

–> Taehyung

  • is the most apprehensive about your kingdom because of what happened to his eye,,,,,,,,,for a while he covered it up with a patch but recently he’s taken to not wearing it just because hoseok has convinced him it doesn’t make him look bad,,,,,,,,,,it makes him look really strong
  • and everyone in his country respects him for taking care of the king so well
  • and taehyung,,,,,,,,,,,,,,has another reason for his animosity and it’s because magic,,,,,in the modern world has been looked down apart. a wizard is even the one who is said to have been the one attack his father that day,,,,,,,but taehyung,,,,has magic in his blood
  • he isn’t sure what to trace it back to,,,,,but he can speak with animals. he’s been able to do it since he was a child and was first taught to horseback ride,,,,he could literally speak to his horse and everyone thought he just had a gift for the sport, but no,,,,,,he just knew what the horse was thinking and could tell it what he wanted
  • and you meet taehyung through animals because as you’re sitting in room you hear something tapping at the window and once you open it a dove flies in
  • and in its beak is what looks like a letter and when you open it,,,,,,,,,,still shellshocked that you got ,,,,,,,this letter by literal carrier dove
  • you see the words ‘are you the oracle?’ and you’re like ???? w- what is this
  • and you think about showing it to the princes, so they know someone else knows you’re here. but then you think,,,,,what if this is someone seeking help,,,,,,,,,or maybe someone seeking to help you 
  • because you really don’t want to get married, you’re still young!
  • so you take the risk and write back ‘yes. who is asking’ and giving it back to the bird who takes off back to the skies
  • and the next day in the afternoon, she’s back with a new letter and this one says ‘im from the other kingdom. are they using you to see if there will be a war? they don’t have to do that. there will be war for what they did to us.’
  • and you suddenly get a feeling in the pit of your stomach that maybe you shouldn’t have replied to the letter so you just crumple this one up and throw it away
  • but the two days pass and another letter comes and it goes ‘i don’t know if you know the story, oracle. but i was scarred in your countries meek attack on my father. i cannot let my people down and not wage a war, do you understand?’
  • and you remember ,,,,, the scar,,,,,,this must be taehyung and you know you can’t ignore this letter so you write back: ‘i know the story, i know of what happened to you taehyung but the attack on your father was not planned. war won’t be good for either country, it was the work of a wizard.’
  • the letter you get back: ‘and so what, a wizard could be used by your country! they’re using you, an oracle to foretell the future, they could hire another magic being to kill my father!’
  • you can see the handwriting is bigger and more messy, you can see there’s anger in it and you look at the dove as it sits on your balcony waiting for you to reply and you can only write back ‘they’re using my vision to see if there is a war,,,,,and what they will be able to do to stop it. they want nothing to protect our people, they don’t want a war so they wouldn’t have had reason to kill your father. you understand, don’t you - what the consequence on your people will be?’
  • you don’t get a reply for a week and it’s nearing the time of the wedding
  • but suddenly instead of the dove, you get an eagle and the message says ‘come to the outskirts of the stables’ and you’re confused, but you go and you see a hooded figure standing right behind one of the bushes and when the hood comes off you see ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the most handsome boy
  • with beautiful glowing skin, a lean figure and then,,,,,,,,,,the scar,,,,,,
  • and you gasp because taEHYUNG???? prince TAEHYUNG??? and he’s like “shhhhh, ive come here,,,,,,,to ask you something.”
  • and you’re like what???? you know if the princes find you you’ll be arres-
  • and he’s like shaking his head and he’s like “is it true, you’re an oracle. is it true they didn’t plan the attack on my father.”
  • and you swallow and stand up a bit straighter and you’re like 
  • “i,,,,,,,,,would be willing to bet my life. and im sure that the vision i have when im married,,,,,,,,it will proclaim peace. there is no need for this war.”
  • and taehyung looks at you, the stern serious brown in his eyes suddenly turning slightly softer and he reaches out to touch your hand and you’re like ?
  • and he’s like “excuse me, i just never thought the oracle would turn out to be,,,,,,,,,,this ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,beautiful”
  • and you’re like aHH,,,,,,,but he’s suddenly like “i need to go, now. my horse says someone is coming near. ill,,,,,,,write to you”
  • and you wave him off but as you’re going back inside you’re like wait,,,,,his horse??????Spoke to him
  • and you and taehyung exchange letters until finally on the day before the wedding he shows up and prince jungkook nearly dashes at him, saber out

  • and everyone is shocked because what,,,,,,,,,,,why the sudden change of heart and taehyung flicks his gaze to where you’re standing back near the palace doors and he’s like “i,,,,,have reflected and see no point in war. i want to protect my people.”

–> Hoseok

  • looks like he follows the rules and listens to the rules of his country and to his other brothers, but in reality there’s something a little,,,,,,mischievous about him
  • is the most social of the brothers when it comes to the people of his country and he enjoys going around without guards in the town and buying from local farmers and talking to school teachers and playing with the kids in the street
  • and is not really sure where he stands on the whole war thing,,,,,,,,,but what he does know is that he’s incredibly interested in the people of other kingdoms,,,,,how do they live? what does their food taste like? what kind of holidays do they have?
  • which is why he travels over to your kingdom one time,,,,,,,,,and he isn’t even sure of all of this oracle business or the war he just wants to see your country for himself
  • and you,,,,,,well you’re a rebellious oracle. you don’t wanna sit in that palace all day with the princes you don’t much want to marry
  • you want to go back, you want to see your family at least see how they’re doing and if they’re worried for you
  • and that’s why one morning you pack yourself some bread and slip out of the garden unnoticed by the maids who you’d distracted with something
  • and you run down the forest path that leads to the town and you’re so happy
  • to be on the streets you are familiar with, see people you know
  • even though you have to hide under a veil you’ve prepared so no one knows who you are and doesn’t report you back to the princes
  • and you’re navigating your way to your parents produce shop when you bump into someone and all the things in their basket go flying
  • and you’re like “oh my gosh im so ,,,, sorry”
  • and you try to pick up a mango that’s rolling away and the person lets out this sunny, melodic chuckle
  • and you look up and ,,,,,,,,,,,, wow,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,there is sunbeams and everything soft embodied in a person and you almost drop that damn mango
  • and he’s like “no problem!! by the way, do you know where i can find this street?”
  • and he shows you a map and you’re like oh,,,,of course-
  • and you give him directions and he gives you another smile that almost makes you tip over because WOW how can someone look like that
  • and you have to part ways but you’re like,,,,,he’s the most wonderful,,,,,,traveler you’ve ever seen
  • and you get back to the palace and are in for an earful from everyone until they’re distracted with incoming news and you see jin open up the paper and 
  • the front page,,,,,,,,,it’s a picture of the traveler you saw???? the super handsome but jin frowns and he’s like “prince hoseok,,,,,,was last seen in our town? they might have sent him as a spy we should do something.”
  • and you’re like wait what and you look at the photo and you’re 100% sure that that’s who you saw,,,,,,,
  • and that night as you’re sleeping you wake up from another dream but,,,,it’s a bad one,,,,,,,,,,,,,really bad and it involves prince hoseok being hurt by one of the villagers,,,,,literally you see him get bludgeoned
  • and you get up and run down the halls to jin’s room and ask his servants to wake him up
  • and when you explain your vision jin kind of goes “that’s,,,,,i can’t allow that to happen. even if he is our rival, send out a search team.”
  • and the entire night is lighted up with the lights from the search team as they look through the town to find the prince
  • and they do,,,,but it’s too late, he’s already been hurt but he’s rushed to the palace to get medical treatment by the in-house doctor
  • and when you hear whats happened you run to go see if prince hoseok is ok
  • and somehow,,,,,,something pulls you toward him and you don’t leave his side the entire night
  • and when he wakes up, still groggy you fill him in and he’s like “you—-you saw a vision? are you the oracle?” and you nod slowly and he’s like “but,,,,,,i saw you in town?” and you’re like “i escaped for a bit, i do that. but seriously, are you ok?”
  • and hoseok smiles and you’re like ???? and he’s like “you’re like me, you can’t sit still.”
  • and you don’t know what to say,,blushing a bit and looking down and you’re like “um,,,,,,,,,” because like ,,,,,,, wow he’s so beautiful even with a bruised lip and a huge bandaged on his head,,,,,,,you can’t help but get embarrassed in front of him
  • and jin comes by and asks if hoseok is spying on their kingdom and hoseok just laughs and is like “no, i was just here to sample the culture” and jin doesn’t believe him but you’re like trying to convince him that hoseok is innocent and jin is like “why are you so,,,,,,,,,,,,,,nice to him?” and you’re like “im an oracle, i have magic in me and my magic is telling me he wasn’t spying.”
  • and jin doesn’t know what to do but he calls for the other two princes to come and pick up their brother
  • and when they do, taehyung and namjoon thank jin for returning their brother safely
  • but you’re sad to see hoseok go,,,,,and you know you have to be married in a couple of days,,,,,,,,but,,,,,,,,,,,
  • until suddenly something begins to hurt in your head and you drop to your knees and jimin rushes to you
  • and you can see it before your eyes,,,,,,,,,that the two kingdoms are at peace,,,,,,,,and you go “the vision,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the prophecy,,,,,,it came to me”
  • and jin is like “without the power of marriage??????” and you look up and hoseok, whose pushed back his brothers to come and lean in front of you and touch your cheek to see if you’re ok
  • and you’re like “,,,,,,,,,yes without marriage,,,,,,,it’s just the power of,,,,,,,,,,,,,,” and you’re looking at hoseok
  • whose looking back at you and you’re like, under your breath “love,,,,,,at first sight?”
  • and jin is like what did you see and you’re like “peace. i saw peace.”
  • and the two set of brothers look at each other and back at you and jimin wants to help you up, but hoseok is already supporting you and when he gets you up you see how you’re pressed into his arms
  • and suddenly you’re getting something else, a vision of a wedding off in the future,,,,,,,,,
  • but the groom waiting at the alter,,,,,,,,,he turns around and,,,,,,
  • it’s that smile. hoseok’s warm, radiating smile and you look back at him as he’s holding you and he’s like “did you see something?”
  • and you’re like “how did you know?”
  • and hoseok, taking your hand to put it over his heart goes “im no oracle, but you’re making me feel something,,,,,,,,,,,,maybe the same thing you saw in your vision?”

College!AU where Yuuri is that boy who runs into class looking like death, downing an unhealthy amount of caffeine and constantly pinching himself to stay awake because he is constantly pushing himself and works way too hard and #anxietydisordersarereal

Viktor is the TA for one of Yuuris classes and he has seen a billion anxious college kids struggling to survive and hasn’t really given a damn but something about Yuuri captures his attention and he can’t. Stop. Worrying. Cue Vik leaving little notes of encouragement on Yuuris desk and slowly putting little treats on the desk and finally just setting up a whole breakfast tray because this boy needs nUTRIENTS.

Yuuri is very confused but rlly rlly thankful because it’s hard to deal with your super hot TA on an empty stomach/when you feel like shit. His secret admirer makes things easier.

Ransom has tried colour coding his notes about fifteen separate times and failed miserably because he either spends four hours picking the perfect colours for everything and putting everything in order or he gets distracted by the colours while reading the notes and just zones out looking at the colours. He will yellow highlight things he doesn’t know for sure in essays because it distracts him enough to go and fix it or research it. His study methods involve teaching Holster neuroscience, talking to the ghosts, drawing a billion diagrams on overlays and writing full length essays on each learning objective of the week but with far less organisation than anyone expects. Sometimes he can’t focus for three days and gets very little done and then hyper focuses for three hours and get the entire project done. It’s a struggle and inconvenient because half the time the hyperfocus comes four days after the essay was due. He doesn’t realise that not everyone does this until his fourth year despite the constant jokes about his short attention span and struggle to apply attention to detail. After a lot of gentle bullying from Bitty who struggles with the same thing he goes to the campus counsellor and gets some focusing techniques and on his way to sorting out a problem which has effected him for years now.

complexfeelings  asked:

am i the only person who headcanons L as colourblind,, do you have any headcanons to share,,,

complexfeelings said:REGARDING THAT I MEAN LIKE,, LIKE MONOCHROME COLOUR BLIND

I personally see him as red/green colourblind as that’s the most common in men! So here’s some for that!

- L getting frustrated when his teachers write on the whiteboard with red blue or green markers. How many times has he told them that he cannot see the colours? Probably about a billion at this point. He can see the colours but not the shapes it makes out. It’s infuriating

- Light showing him two different shirts he likes, one is light blue, the other is more of a teal. L stares at him blankly when Light asks which he prefers. They both look the same to him.

- ‘Misa if you could not write your emails in sixteen different colours I would be grateful’

- Getting annoyed when Matsuda points at colours and asks L what they are. He can see them just not the shades

- Why is everything blue why is everything blue. Why does every website need to be blue

“As I have searched the scientific records in more than half dozen languages for a long time without finding the least anticipation, I consider myself the original discoverer of this truth, which can be expressed by the statement: There is no energy in matter other than that received from the environment. On my 79th birthday I made a brief reference to it, but its meaning and significance have become clearer to me since then. I applies rigorously to molecules and atoms as well as the largest heavenly bodies, and to all matter in the universe in any phase of its existence from it: very formation to its ultimate disintegration.

“Being perfectly satisfied that all energy in matter is drawn from the environment, it was quite natural that when radioactivity was discovered in 1896 I immediately started a search for the external agent which caused it. The existence of radioactivity was positive proof of the existence of external rays. I had previously investigated various terrestrial disturbances affecting wireless circuits but none of them or any others emanating from the earth could produce a steady sustained action and I was driven to the conclusion that the activating rays were of cosmic origin. This fact I announced in my papers on Roentgenn rays and Radiations contributed to the Electrical Review of New York, in 1897. However, as radioactivity was observed equally well in other widely separated parts of the world, it was obvious that the rays must be impinging on the earth from all directions. Now, of all bodies in the Cosmos, our sun was most likely to furnish a clue as to their origin and character. Before the electron theory was advanced, I had established that radioactive rays consisted of particles of primary matter not further decomposable, and the first question to answer was whether the sun is charged to a sufficiently high potential to produce the effects noted. This called for a prolonged investigation which culminated in my finding that the sun’s potential was 216 billions of volts and that all such large and hot heavenly bodies emit cosmic rays. Through further solar research and observation of Novae this has been proved conclusively, and to deny it would be like denying the light and heat of the sun. Nevertheless, there are still some doubters who prefer to shroud the cosmic rays in deep mystery. I am sure that this is not true for there is no place where such a process occurs in this or any other universe beyond our ken.

“A few words will be sufficient in support of this contention. The kinetic and potential energy of a body is the result of motion and determined by the product of its mass and the square of velocity. Let the mass be reduced, the energy is diminished in the same proportion. If it be reduced to zero the energy is likewise zero for any finite velocity. In other words, it is absolutely impossible to convert mass into energy. It would be different if there were forces in nature capable of imparting to a mass infinite velocity. Then the product of zero mass with the square of infinite velocity would represent infinite energy. But we know that there are no such forces and the idea that mass is convertible into energy is rank nonsense.

"Purl Before Swines" for the fic title thing (sorry, I got knitting on my mind and puns are just my way of life so it gives strange results)

omg I love this title. XD

Lance and Hunk knit things for the other paladins, Lance constantly complaining about how no one appreciates how much work goes into it–and yet Lance is the one who keeps taking on new projects. Hunk helps because (a) knitting is stress-relief, (b) he doesn’t want Lance to overwork himself, and © it’s nice to be able to give people things. The two of them set out to make things their friends will actually use and cherish, because you don’t want to guilt them into liking it just because of how much time it took.

Pidge is easy: she’s always cold in the castle and complains about how the blankets are all too thin. Even when she’s warm, she has a hard time falling asleep because she needs the weight of a good blanket. So Lance and Hunk make her a double-knitted blanket.

Allura’s next–Lance knew from the start she’d love a nice lace shawl; the biggest issue was the pattern. Knitting patterns are in short supply in space, so he had to design the shawl himself, which took a lot of time and a lot of reworking as he kept hating what he came up with.

Shiro wasn’t too hard, either. Once Hunk realized Shiro’s a sweater person, they had their hearts set on making him the best sweater. (Getting his measurements was a bit of a struggle, but they managed, and Shiro virtually never takes off the sweater except when they’re training or in battle. It’s so comfy!)

Coran is simultaneously the easiest and the hardest person to knit for, because he steadfastly refuses to ask for or give any indication that he wants anything big and time consuming–but he loves even the smallest things Lance and Hunk make for him. He ends up with two hats, a scarf, a pair of gloves, a cozy for his tea mug, and leg warmers that were totally supposed to be a joke, but Coran unironically loves them, so Lance isn’t going to ruin his fun.

And then there’s Keith. What the hell do you knit Keith? He doesn’t like hats, he doesn’t get the point of knit gloves, he never seems to get cold, Lance refuses to accentuate his stupid jacket’s collar with a scarf…

Then one day Lance is making a little Blue Lion amigurumi for himself, and Keith appears literally out of nowhere to peek over Lance’s shoulder and ask what he’s doing. Lance explains (after he convinces his heart not to beat right out of his chest), and even though Keith doesn’t say anything, he’s not exactly subtle about lurking around watching Lance work.

Over the next several days, a crocheted Red Lion shows up on Keith’s bed, followed by a hippo, a Black Lion, the other three lions to complete the set, a full quartet of space mice, an Arusian, and the entire team in miniature. Keith is overwhelmed, but he does sleep with the lions and the hippo, and he usually has one of the smaller amigurumi in his fanny pack at all times.

(Bonus: The last several projects Lance did mostly on his own, since Hunk has cooking and engineering and other stuff to do. Not too long after completing everyone else’s gifts, though, Lance heads to his room one night and finds a blanket–obviously amateur, with a billion mistakes and horrendously uneven stitches–folded up at the foot of his bed. There’s a note at the bottom that says, Sorry it’s not as good as yours, but we wanted to say thanks for spending so much time on us. The entire team has signed it, with Shiro adding a PS: Don’t blame Hunk for the bad quality. He’s a great teacher; we’re just really bad at knitting. Lance may or may not be teary eyed as he cocoons himself in his new blanket and falls asleep.)
