and she makes the same faces

Cartoon Criticism Dictionary

(aka phrases I use here to describe very specific things)

Sameface Syndrome: when various female characters all have their faces designed according to the exact same formula, in a way that detracts from the story and is clearly done only to make them “beautiful.” Does not apply to stylistic choices, and does not mean that the characters literally all have the exact same face. Ex. The women in Frozen were designed with major Sameface Syndrome.

Keaneface: currently the most common female face in Western animation, consisting of a heart-shaped face with large eyes and a small, low-placed nose and mouth. Popularized (though not invented) by legendary Disney animator Glen Keane.Ex. Moana has a different body type, but she still definitely has some Keaneface going on.

Girly-Tomboy Compex: when all female characters in a movie or show can be defined as either “girly-girls” (typically feminine clothing and interests) or “tomboys” (actively rallying against feminine clothing and interests, and/or interested in “boy stuff”). Ex. GoGo Tomago and Honey Lemon are pretty much complete stereotypes! They really exemplify the Girly-Tomboy Complex.

Usagi Syndrome: when a female character is criticized for traits that are universally accepted in male characters, such as being annoying, lazy, or gluttonous. Named for the protagonist of Sailor Moon, Tsukino Usagi.Ex. The publisher told me that the protagonist of my novel was too immature for her age. I guess she got hit with Usagi Syndrome.

Girl Power Quota: the practice of having your female character(s) act tough throughout most of the film and/or save the male character(s) at least once, only to suddenly become helpless during the climax.Ex. How come that character who knows kung fu was suddenly incapacitated by someone grabbing her arm? Guess the writers hit their Girl Power Quota.

Strong Independent Woman™: also called the Strong Female Character™. Refers to a method of writing female characters where, instead of giving the character an actual personality, the writer instead makes them “strong” with shortcuts like making them needlessly violent, having them constantly sass others, decrying all typical feminine traits as “weak”, etc.Ex. I was excited that they decided to add a female character to the action hero team, but she was too much of a Strong Independent Woman™ to be interesting. The writers clearly don’t know what women are really like.

Historical Accuracy Fallacy: the claim that it is okay for a story to star mostly white characters because of historical accuracy, even though the story uses fantasy elements that are obviously not historically accurate, not to mention many historical time periods had more POC than we realize.Ex. I got an anon message saying that there shouldn’t be black people in How to Train Your Dragon because the vikings were white, but I guess they were still fine with the dragons! They fell right into the Historical Accuracy Fallacy.

Chipette Principle: making female characters who are essentially exactly the same as the male characters, except with gender signifiers like eyelashes, pronounced lips, the color pink somewhere on their person, or clothing. Coined by Lindsey Ellis. Ex. Classic Disney characters rely way too much on the Chipette Principle, what with Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck.

Feel free to suggest more!

blitzdragonking  asked:

What did Othello tell Ciel during their conversation? Chapter 125.

From what I understand, Othello is interested in Ciel because it’s rare for a child to make a contract with a demon.

Also he said to Ciel “I’ve seen this face somewhere before” which is actually quite interesting. Is he referring to Vincent? Rachel? Claudia? RealCiel (in case 2CT is true)? And where and when did he meet that person who has the same face as Ciel??

EDIT:

My bad, I had totally forgotten that it’s been 50 years since Othello last came to the human world xD Then I guess Claudia might be the most likely one, as she was 9-10years old 50 years ago.

Hurm. I have a few thoughts on this, in no particular order:

  • If destroying the code is important, than why does Rose have it in the first place?
  • Seeing as how Dream Rose lives on Derse, should she really trust the instructions of the beings that dwell above it?
  • On the “off chance” that destroying that code is a bad idea, than it’s a good thing that Dave has a copy.
  • “Prince of the moon”? Does that make Rose the princess of the moon? And do John and Jade hold the same titles on Prospit’s moon?
  • We never have seen Dave without his shades. I’m inclined to think that when he does meet these dark gods, we’ll see him take off the glasses, but we won’t actually see his face. On the other hand, if there was any situation with enough pomp and circumstance to warrant that reveal, then this meeting could be it.

Don’t get me wrong, for fandom hijinks I dearly love gamer gremlin team kid sister D.Va.

But I’m also 110% here for fierce Hana Song, who at 16 had the dedication and discipline to become a worldwide eSports champion, who was called from a life of fame and product sponsorships to put her life on the line to protect her country.

18-19 year old Hana who streams her combat, tallies dead omnics like zergling waves, tracks her APM on the battlefield to make herself be the same merciless competitor she was in cyberspace. Hana who knows who she is, loves what she loves, and refused to let the hypermasculine culture of professional eSports or the grim reality of total war take that away from her. Who stubbornly clips a cell phone charm to her light gun and paints her face and MEKA bright pink, wearing her bunny rabbits and bubble gum as both metaphorical and literal armor.

Hana who takes to battle in a giant technological marvel, behind a couple of feet of armored metal, and when the situation calls for it will leap out and detonate it, darting around the field of combat in a bodysuit with a handgun while Widowmaker sneeringly calls her a child. Hana, whose intelligence, tactical prowess and reflexes were charged with replacing the most advanced AI drone system known to man and did it.

Clever, sassy Hana who spends her afternoons off playing with Tracer and Lúcio while weary military veteran Hana spends sleepless nights in the mess hall with Reinhardt and Morrison and a pot of black coffee, quiet stories of fallen comrades and bloody losses and the horrors that haunt all their dreams.

Give me cheeky gremlin D.Va in all her cheesy-powder-coated glory, but goddamn, give me Hana Song too.

Makkachin Fate

So I have been sitting on a couple of theories and I think I have the finale sussed out but first my Makkiachin theory :0

Off the bat since Makkiachin is an old dog (11years ish) it is undoubtable that he will die at some point in the series :(

But I think his death is going to play a major part later in the season. Which I’ll extended upon my in my finale theory.

So first of Yuri gets to the call and its pretty much the nail in the coffin already.

Yuri is terrified in this moment. He has been here before, he has heard these same words before. This is why we get the flashback of Viccichan shrine.

This flashback could also be seen as a foreshadowing of Makk’s death reflecting Viccichans death.

Then Mari says this…..

Look at Yuri’s face he’s in shock, the sweat, the gaping mouth & lack of eye’s. Yuri is making a tough choice.

Mari is apologising, she knows Yuri has done this before and its hard for him.

 She is probably asking if they want to put Makkachin down or to wait for him to come back and say goodbye.

Yuri knows there is not enough time left that’s why he rushes Victor into a decision.

Yuri is demanding he knows there is no time left. Which intensifies the seriousness of Makkachins condition.

Yuri is going to be nervous next ep it is a big thing to go into a event like this without anyone there to support him.

Literally when I saw this at the beginning of the ep I was like I’m so dam happy he has Victor there the support him.

And trust me Yakov is trouble I’ll explain in another post.

 So instead of keeping Victor by his side, he sends Victor away as he knows that this is better in the long run.

He’s giving Victor a chance to say goodbye, a chance he never got.

No matter if Victor gets there on time or even if Makk lives, this death experience will affect Victor.

There will be and already has been a change in Victors behaviour due to Makks potential death.

Victor is in a state of shock

He has childless innocence here, like he is not prepared for what’s about to happen.

Here he looks torn between his love for Yuri (he knows Yuri would do better with his support) and his oldest friendship with Makkachan.

 This anime has already broken so many boundaries dealing with a bigger character death wouldn’t be a surprise. It is an important message/lesson to the audience and characters. A part of growing up.

 Victor could go downhill as Yuri did before the Grand Prix Finale.

The two are reflecting one another’s actions as much of the fore shadowing’s shown Yuri’s becoming more like Victor(Eos) and Victors becoming more gentle like Yuri. 

We are going to see a emotional angst Victor we have seen Yuri go through the emotions now its Victors turn.  

Stay tuned for more theory posts :)

AU Idea (I think I'm gonna write it but I don't know)

- ok but Marinette is the MOST popular Instagram model
- it started off as a joke/fun on behalf of Alya

- so like Marinette has all these hella good outfits that she has made but never wore it
- even though they all fit her(as a fashion/design student, SAME. make it for myself but never see it on myself)
- so she decides she needs to get some use into these.
- Alya being the amazing boo she is, decides to make an Instagram of Marinette wearing these outfits and takes secret pictures of her.
- NOT ONE of them show her FACE its covered by a hand or leaf or something
- the account BLOWS UP(so many outfit genres and ideas like from cute to bodycon to street/90’s inspired to grudge to hipster)
- Marinette is oblivious
- until Alya comes barreling into her bedroom in their apartment, screaming THE IT MODEL ADRIEN AGRESTE is FOLLOWING THEM.
- Marinette ends up unconscious on the floor.
- she recovers and cries but eventually soften up to the account and newfound fame because, she looks SO HOT(even though her face is not showing) and she can switch stuff up and use all her items she had made and also cause Adrien is following her.
- companies want her to promote them but she only picks what she likes and ended up promoting Nino’s new album turning him into a DJ sensation(Kinda like flume,chain smokers etc)
- she then gets an intern letter from The Agreste’s and is now working on a photo shoot WHILE going to Univeristy and handling her account with Alya, who is now making a blog. Oh my Gosh.

- Her heels, erratically click as she steps onto the photo shoot platform. Fingers curl tightly around a box of pins. Knuckles white, breathing hard, heart thumping, she lifts a lithe, bandaid covered finger and adjusts the emerald tie of the emerald eyed, blonde Angel in front of her.
“Hey Marinette, do you know the model Ladybug?”
Her face pales considerably.

I think the funniest Green Day fan story I’ve ever heard was about this girl who was at the barrier at the end of the catwalk during a show when Billie was performing his acoustic encore. He kept making eye contact with her and each time they made eye contact she’d pull the most ridiculous faces possible

Then the next day she ran into Mike and Billie in the same city, and she went up to them to ask for a photo. And Billie turned around and stared at her for a few seconds and then he was pointed at her and laughed and said “YOU!! It was you!” and Mike was like “huh?” and Billie was like “she was trying to make me laugh!”

Morgan Brian and Lauren (Cheney) Holiday on their friendship on and off the field:

“Every time I came into camp, she was the first one to talk to me, and make me feel comfortable. I was coming to camps from college and it was kinda surreal to be surrounded by players that you look up to and she [Holiday] always made me feel welcome and made sure I was okay. On the field it was the same thing I remember some girl got a yellow card on me and it was a really bad tackle,” Brian said of a friendly against Canada in 2014. “She [Holiday] was the first one in the referees face. She has another side to her when she gets mad, so everyone calls her alter-ego ‘Shanaynay’, so that came out and I thought it was really cool. ”  

“I’ve told people this before- Morgan is going to be the star,” Holiday said. “I think that you guys just saw a glimpse of what she can bring to the table in the World Cup. I told her a year before the World Cup started, she would be starting in a World Cup final and I don’t think she believed me at all. But, she did and I think she did a great job for us.” 

“Off the field, just having fun, enjoying it and being young. You forget what it’s like to be that player,” Holiday said. “That was me, that was A-Rod [Amy Rodriguez], that was Tobin [Heath] years ago. Just being around her and hanging out with her and getting to know her, I’ve gotten to experience that again and that’s been fun for me.” 

I don’t think this friendship got enough love & recognition.

A Non-Exhaustive, Unranked List (Part 1 of ?)

  • Obi-Wan jumping out of a window

  • The faces everyone on the Council makes after Qui-Gon tells them he thinks the Sith are back

  • Maul’s Obitine-Themed Revenge Shrine 
  • Darth Maul coming back on fucking robot spider legs and being more obsessed with Obi-Wan than even me and possibly Anakin 
  • The Darksaber existing
  • The sheer number of capes, including that Krennic has a rainproof one
  • Obi-Wan and Anakin’s robes in the comics and Vader’s cape in the comics being about 600 times longer than they actually are in the films and somehow always in front of a wind machine
  • Hux’s scenery-chewing villain speech before they destroy Hosnian Prime
  • Obi-Wan’s Post-Jedi-Trainee-Hair Hair
  • Anakin’s Post-Jedi-Trainee-Hair Hair 
  • Yoda stealing Luke’s food 
  • Artoo fucking off mid-assignment to take a spa day in that one TCW episode 
  • My wife Satine Kryze constantly yelling about pacifism
  • Chopper’s arm flails 
  • Vader bringing up Obi-Wan in like every third line he has in the OT even after the guy has been dead for actual years 
  • Kanan and Hera helping to run the goddamn Rebellion while raising a couple of teenage kids at the same time, one of whom is an unstable Jedi Trainee and the other of whom is a damn Mandalorian
  • Anakin’s Sand Soliloquy 
  • Count Dooku having exactly zero minutes of time for absolutely anyone ever, especially in TCW 
  • Sidious. Just…everything about him. 
  • The fact that Bail Organa goes out of his way to mention that he’s going back to Alderaan in Rogue One JUST to cause me pain 
  • The novelization of Revenge of the Sith 
  • Han Solo being like “pfft whatever Old Man I fly the Millennium Falcon” with that smug ass smile on his face while talking to OBI-WAN GODDAMNED KENOBI, who is just listening to all of this with this look like “you have absolutely no idea who you are dealing with here, kid” 

don’t think about allura deep in thought — eyes focused on a map of constellations before her, brows furrowed, tip of a pencil on her lips, hair tied back except for that one silver strand that’s slipped out of her bun. 

don’t think about shiro checking on her in the middle of the night — finding her in the command room, sighing softly to himself when he sees her standing in the same spot as when he left her two hours ago, slipping his arms around her to embrace her from behind, stepping close against her to catch the little jump she makes when she realizes he’s there.

don’t think about his breath on her neck as he turns his nose toward her, her arm slowly lowering the pencil in her hand down to the table — the hint of a smile stretching over her face as his lips graze the point of her ear as he murmurs,

“hey, princess.”

Dan Wilson (Taylor’s co-writer) performing Treacherous at Room 5 in Los Angeles on November 14, 2012.

“Taylor Swift and I wrote a song in the Spring and we recorded it a few weeks later and I added some stuff to it and it was out a few months after that.

It was really, really a very smooth and fast (relatively speaking for me anyways) process and one of the questions that several people asked online was “What is it like writing with Taylor Swift?” and I just want to say, you know when she makes that amazed expression on the TV awards show like she is just astonished that she just won? That’s how she treats a new good idea in a writing session too and it’s incredibly motivating. It actually makes you want to come up with another great idea to make her make that astonished face.

One cool thing is that if she comes up with something really cool, she makes the same face also. I admire that kind of, you know, transparency.

We wrote this song called Treacherous that I’m going to play.”

Lie about love - Dean Winchester x Reader

Title: Lie about love

Pairing: Dean Winchester x Reader, Castiel x Reader (slight, not really)

Warnings: Possessed Reader

Prompt: Reader gets possessed and tells Dean lies about reader&cas just to hurt him, but then cas comes and exorcises the demon and Dean thinks that what the demon said was true (bc of huggin etc) but then time skip reader tells the truth about her feelings?

“Do you think she’d ever have feelings for you? Dean Winchester?” she scoffed, spite in her voice but Dean couldn’t bring himself entirely to hate it because it was your face, it was your voice, it was your eyes- your everything that he actually loved. He couldn’t bring himself to be strong an face the monster because he was actually facing the woman he loved more than anything. She laughed. But it was not the same laugh that would usually make his heart skip a beat because unfortunately it was no longer you that laughed.

“Like hell” she scoffed “She’d rather kill herself than fall for you, much less get any closer as far as a relationship is concerned.” she said in a hiss “You’re one big damn flaw, Dean. Broken, in every possible way. You are a mess, a man with daddy issues, womanizer and an alcoholic. What would she ever want to do with you?” she scoffed and Dean swallowed down the lump in his throat.

He fought so hard to not let it show how much your words were getting to him.Because he knew it wasn’t yours words exactly it was her words because she was the one speaking. But in the very end she was inside you, she could see all of your thoughts and feelings. How could Dean be sure she was only lying to him?

“Shut up.” Dean growled, his hands not even flexing to throw the holly water at you like he would do with any other demon. He couldn’t bring himself to hurt you not even when it wasn’t actually you.

Every day, Words With Friends shows me a “match of the day” person they say they hand-picked *just for me*, and want me to play against.

The suggestions are priceless.

First of all, roughly 50% are grandmas.

Another 20% are middleaged guys with sunglasses who reeeaaally like to take selfies in their cars.

#1 looks to be in a driver’s seat, whereas #2 is in a passenger sea– … wait, are they in the same car? 

Are they double-car-sunglasses-selfie buddies?!

I’m not entirely sure what’s happening in this photo… which one’s Jolene? Is she the too-bright one in the foreground with no face?

…also, where on earth are they? Tile floor, some kind of seating, floor-mounted computer kiosk… I’m so confused.

At least this shot makes sense.

These nice people just wanted to take a selfie with the damp pavement outside their house. I mean, hey, we’ve all been there.

At first, I thought the app was just suggesting some guy named Steve, but then I looked at the photo, and – plot twist – it appears Steve might actually be his last name.

This also raises the question of what mother decided to name their kid Tyler Steve.

…and the same goes for the mother that named her son Zyngawf 34260864.

Poor, poor Pippifuzz. They’re just a ghostly outline, doomed forever to haunt the halls of Words With Friends suggestions.

Brandon doesn’t have it much better, seeing as he’s a cloud of mist next to a bridge. At least he has a semi-corporeal body, unlike poor Pippifuzz.


Fred… Fred’s seen some hard times.

…also, yes, the Bumble wants to play Words With Friends with me. I’m flattered.

As does this dog.

As does–…

…wait… Gandalf?

GANDALF!

YOU’RE ALIVE

GANDALF IS ALIVE AND WANTS TO PLAY WORDS WITH FRIENDS WITH ME

WHY 👏   IS 👏   NO 👏   ONE 👏  TALKING 👏   ABOUT 👏   THE 👏  FACT 👏 THAT 👏   THIS 👏  IS 👏  MORAN????

i’m reposting buT IT MEANS THIS IS MAYBE SORT OF PROOF THAT THIS WHOLE JOHN CHEATING THING IS IN SHERLOCK’S HEAD. we already had hints that this is mind palace/dream sequences with the glowing skull on the wall, with sherlock admitting to reoccurring dreams, with water references happening everywhere (including when he was drugged and dreaming about pirate times). the newspaper he’s holding references a case he was working on ‘two places at the same time’, the advert peeking over her shoulder is of culverton being creepy af and she is culverton’s daughter (or in some way related), Sherlock’s mind is filling in the blanks and adding random faces to people in his dream and then he’s trying to make sense of it by going to ella, either for real or more likely in his mind palace

it’s sherlock’s nightmare that not only john decides to cheat which is bad enough bUT HE DECIDES TO CHEAT WITH SOMEONE WHO ISN’T HIM. and then proceeds to tell him to fuck right off for something he had no control over/no way of helping

Ok, but imagine Newt’s creatures shipping Newtina. They get really frustrated when Newt and Tina just kind of dance awkwardly around each other and ignore their feelings, so they take action. An Occamy stretches out and trips Tina so she falls into Newt’s arms. The Swooping Evil swoops down and smacks Newt’s face towards Tina’s. Pickett “falls” off Newt’s shoulder so they both lean down to catch him at the same time and bump into each other. The Niffler makes them get all up in each other’s personal space to admire his collection of shiny things. And Queenie is watching this and rolling her eyes, and one day is finally like “I THINK THE CREATURES ARE TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING.”

Newt and Tina pretend to look awkwardly at each other and flee the situation, but once Queenie’s out of sight, they smirk at each other because they’ve already been on several dates and they’re totally just trolling everyone because they’re cinnamon rolls with mischievous sides even Loki himself would be proud of.
