People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any
I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing
I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself
We should kiss right now at this party
No that is a super dumb idea
*kisses her anyway*
That was dumb of you
We should get married right now
We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?
We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.
It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.
Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.
Me, first getting into Skullgirls: I love Peacock and her toony design but how did she get to look like that-
Peacock’s backstory: Lab 8 found Peacock and rebuilt her as a weaponized cyborg after her limbs were rendered useless and her teeth were shattered by Medici slave traders. her cartoony eyes are actually empty eye sockets after they were gouged out :)
With the news about Geoff and Griffon, I think it’s EXTREMELY important to say that no one, under any circumstances, should try and bring this up with Millie on Twitter/insta/etc. I’m sure that this is hard enough on her, she’s only 13. Just leave her alone. Don’t even send messages like ‘I’m sorry be strong’ or whatever, just DONT MENTION IT unless she brings it up first and even then, tread lightly.
Today I am wearing lacy black underwear, for the sole purpose of knowing I am wearing them. And underneath that? I am absolutely naked. And I’ve got skin, miles and miles of skin; I’ve got skin to cover all my thoughts like saran wrap that you can see through to what leftovers are inside from the night before. And despite what you might think, my skin is not rough; nor is it bullet proof. My skin is soft, and smooth, and easily scarred. But that doesn’t matter, right? You don’t care about how soft my skin is. You just want to hear about what my fingers do in the dark.
don’t ever remember my dad being normal. He was always a little
strange. The man was secretive and closed off, and all his attempts at
acting like a father rose the hairs on the back of my neck. It seemed
forced. I don’t think I ever got used to that. There was no need,
because he didn’t keep that up for long. By the time I was 5, I didn’t
have a dad. What I had after that was a boss. Maybe an owner. Definitely
not a dad.
He fully opened up as a person around that time. He brought a little
girl into our home. She was small, but she was older than myself, too.
Maybe 7 or 8. Her face was red and raw with tears. “Sam, this is your
new little sister, Maria.” Before I could react, she spoke up between
small sobs. “No, mister. I don’t know you. My name is Claire. Please
take me home to my mommy, I promise that I won’t tell.” By the time she
finished what she was saying, she was barely forming coherent sentences.
That’s when I saw my Dad stop being my dad. With one fluid motion, he
swung his arm, hitting her in the face and knocking her back on her ass.
I jumped up, too afraid and confused to do much of anything, but
still frightened nonetheless. I was young, but I’d seen enough
television to know that normal families didn’t do these things. “Sam,
you sit your ass down or I’ll put you in the ground, you hear me?” Thus
marked the loss of my father. Later, as I listened to the quiet cries of
the girl, now locked in the room next to mine, he sat me down and
explained that he wasn’t my father. He told me things a 5 year old
should never hear. My life changed forever. I was a mistake.
The little girl was with us for a while. My dad left me at home while
he went to the mall, buying all kinds of nice things for Maria. Claire.
Whatever. He probably blew $500. The weeks afterward were strange,
disgusting, and violent all at the same time. At the best, she would
play along with his games and he would be happy. At the worst, I would
have to listen to her screams as he did unspeakable things to her in the
next room. After, when the screaming would stop, he would come to me
and give me the same speech.
“This happens because you aren’t right, you understand? You should
have been born a girl. We wouldn’t have to do this. She’s going to die
someday because you’re trash.” He would walk to the door and finish with
“Remember, Sam. No one out in that world will ever love you. If you try
to leave, I’ll find you and I’ll kill you.”
Maria died about three months after my dad took her. This day wasn’t
her first attempt at escape, but instead it was her last. Truly, I do
not know if my father meant to kill her or not. He became consumed in
his rage and I fought back tears as he continued to hit her and hit her,
over and over again. Her little light went out as she choked on blood,
gurgling sounds coming from her throat. She was buried in our back yard,
right next to the playset that my father bought a year before. After
that, he became nervous to the point where he packed me up and we
started off on the road.
We lived like that for years. Sometimes, we’d live somewhere as long
as a year, but that was the extent of it. On a good year, he’d take two
or three girls without so much as a second look. People didn’t
necessarily suspect him, though. He was a psycho, but the man was smart
too. He would falsify documents and references, getting himself jobs as
close to children as possible. I remember, one time, he was hired on to
be an ice cream truck driver. He snatched up a little girl he called
Gloria right in front of her house. He somehow managed to finish his
route, too. She only lasted two months.
There has been a lot of theories going around about how people think Tyler shot Alex, I disagree, and this is why:
1. “It’s beautiful if you have taste.” “Or if you’re suicidal.”
2. “So if I kill myself will you die too?”
3. “Clearly suicide is an option.”
4. The pool scene
5. Picking fights just to get beat up
6. The car scene
7. “I’ve got no plans.”
8. “I killed Hannah Baker”
9. “It’s not ok.”
10. Cleaning his room
11. He said something about losing Jessica and how she was the only thing that mattered to him
12. Strict father
13. Hannah told him that if he hadn’t made the list, none of this would have happened
i know i’ve made a lot of posts about this but if you have any respect for mlm or trans people or are just a decent person in general, please please PLEASE know that @bext-k (pi/dge’s voice actor from voltron: legendary defender) has had a record of shitty behavior and yet this hasn’t spread past the realm of the vld fandom.
not only has she bullied a 13 year old (bex is 23 now) off of tumblr, she gave a bullshit apology, called ke/ith (a TEENAGE character from the show) a powerbottom (she also ships him with sh/iro, another character who is 25 years old) and absolutely REFUSED to give an apology for her straight up fetishistic behavior (this can all be seen/talked about more in depth here). but most recently now she has reblogged a/b/o fanart of some of the vld characters, which if you didn’t know already is fucking disgusting (further explained in my post)
i know a lot of people have tried defending her behavior now and in the past, but she has not even apologized and/or deleted the post. so since i have personal knowledge that people have been sending her asks about this, and considering the fact that she has continued to reblog posts after reblogging that a/b/o post, this shows how she has most likely seen the asks but has chosen to ignore them.
there can be no excuse anymore. you are a va on a childrens show - you should NEVER be talking about the characters in an explicit sexual sense, and as an adult you should know better. just because you are lgbt doesn’t mean that you can’t fetishize other members of the community and be a shitty person overall.
please, from a mlm trans boy, reblog this if you can
I just wanted to throw my two cents in on Yui and my feelings on her, while also tackling some of the hate she receives. This is mostly for her game and manga persona, so here goes:
1. She’s adorable.
2. She’s a cinnamon roll. Literally the sweetest and kindest. I don’t understand the amount of hate she gets and honestly it’s ridiculous. You can dislike Yui sure, but hate??? this girl who’s done nothing wrong??? Nope.
3. She’s incredibly strong. And no, this does not mean super strength, having magical powers or ‘being a badass vampire hunter’ like so many people in youtube comments complain about in regards to Yui.
'Why doesn’t she fight back!’ They wail. 'Probably because the vampires will literally kill her if she does.’ I reply.
No, Yui’s strength is found in survival. She not only has to deal with 13 vampire’s shit, but also has to; Manage her health so that she doesn’t die, endures mental abuse, manipulation, and all the while being in a strange environment, far from the life and family she’s always known.
My favorite female characters are Tohru from Fruits Basket and Kagome from Inuyasha, as both of them are incredibly strong characters for their mental fortitude and strength of kindness, rather than fighting skills. Yui Komori is exactly the same. She’s a normal high-school girl, why do you people expect her to wield a katana? I also find it incredibly silly that people expect her to try and escape or fight back when it will obviously result in her death.
4. She’s incredibly kind.
As I said earlier, her mental fortitude is amazing, but holy hell is she kind! Yui is patient and learns her vampire when she chooses one. She doesn’t start out loving them, or knowing them, the process takes time and allot of failed attempts to get close. But Yui makes the vampires fall for her, not because of skill or manipulation, but her genuine kindness. Shes just being herself, that’s all it takes. Yes she adapts and changes slightly based on who she chooses, such as in Yuma’s route, she becomes more outspoken, but the core of her character is kindness.
Do you have any idea how much strength it takes to be kind? It’s something we take for granted. We call these characters weak because we don’t outwardly see anything, but living day to day in that sort of environment and still keeping her kindness is amazing.
5. She’s not all rainbows. One thing I really love from the game and manga that I wish had been retained in the anime was Yui’s smarts and funny side. She isn’t all timid smiles, in fact she’s not afraid to put on an act just to get out of bloodsucking:
She doesn’t take any of the vampire’s shit when it goes too far:
She can’t always fight back using her words in fear of punishment, but as the audience we see first hand her inner thoughts and sometimes sassy comments on the vampires actions, which shows that she’s not a airhead. Most of the above varies according to which vampire she chooses, but this just shows her adaptability.
So all in all, Yui is a great otome heroine. She might not have the character development of Cardia from Code Realize, but she is a wonderful, kind girl who’s only fault is her humanity.
'If Yui doesn’t want to be bitten, why does she wear such revealing clothing?“ - a youtube comment. …Y-you do know what you sound like right? Sighs. Moving on.
Yes, she makes mistakes sometimes in how she approaches certain vampires, but I really don’t think we as the audience can judge her on that. Could you do any better? No, probably not. I know I couldn’t. Dislike her if you want, but I’ll be over here loving this cinnamon roll.
[[[[[WARNING!!!!!!!! SPOILERS!!!!! IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN PAST “THE ZOO,” STOP NOW!!! THE VERY LATEST EPISODES ARE REFERENCED HERE!! YOU’VE BEEN WARNED! ALSO THIS POST LONG AF.]]]]]
My theory is that Pink, Yellow, AND Blue diamond were all created by White diamond herself. I think she is the true gemmatriarch. Her appearance is of course the one that’s taking the longest. In every insignia for the Great Diamond Authority, the white diamond is on top while all others are beneath her.
Notice how all 3 diamonds intersect and make a tiny, shaded diamond? I think it represents Pink. Kind of sweet.
Yellow and Blue are side by side, and in the previous insignia, pink is right below them. And, both their gems are located on their chests. But when you look at the murals of White and pink Diamond, White has hers on the forehead, Pink on her Navel. That’s no mere coincidence. I think this means that Yellow and Blue were created at about the same time, Pink last, and White is the first. Let’s look at their murals.
Yellow has 9 planets, so I believe she’s older. Her general demeanor appears strict, dutiful, and reserved. But when it comes to Blue Diamond, that facade softens. She becomes very concerned,
has a tendency of butting into her business,
Wouldn’t you rather forget her?
gives her advice and tries to inspire her,
Where’s their Diamond when they need her, Blue? You’ve got to be a leader, Blue!
and even orders her own Yellow Pearl to “make Blue feel better.” The mural, along with her tendency towards taking responsibility and forcing others to do the same,
I’m here to bring you back to reality, Blue.
It’s been thousands of years, Blue, and you still can’t bring yourself to destroy these Gems? She was shattered by a Rose Quartz! The entire cut of Gem deserves the same fate!
and putting her own feelings to the side so she can show a brave face
Don’t you know I miss her, too?
for those that need her.
Look at how terrified they are.
Look at Blue’s concern
This points towards her being the elder of the two of them. Her actions line up with what an older sister, who knew her duties and responsibilities, would do. It’s clear she doesn’t feel at liberty to disclose or showcase her feelings, because of those that look to her as a pillar of strength.
Holly Blue Agate: You can just feel strength and confidence radiating from her.
Next, we have Blue Diamond.
Blue has 8 planets, so I believe she’s only slightly younger than Yellow Diamond. In “That will be all,” Yellow Diamond is seen trying to get her out of her funk, and Blue Diamond turns her head and makes the face a petulant child might while getting a lecture. Just look at the dynamic here.
Blue Diamond: Why can’t you just let me grieve? Yellow Diamond: You can’t keep coming here forever! Blue Diamond: Why not?
But let’s look at the whole picture. From what we’ve seen so far, it’s clear that Blue has been mourning the loss of Pink Diamond for at least 5,000 years. Meanwhile, it looks like Yellow Diamond has continued progress, not allowing herself to be distracted in the least.
She has so much to do, that not only did she not look at the communicator to see to whom she was speaking, at first, but she didn’t even immediately recognize that it was about a mission regarding Earth, a planet that’s caused her endless grief, that she’s wanted to destroy for eons. That’s crazy.
She’s had her subjects fill out detailed reports on their missions, that she actually reads herself,
Yellow Diamond asked for, uh, my dad, a Connie, a Lars, a Sadie, a mailman, and an onion, I think. Six human variations specified in a report by Peridot 5XG.
has a hands on approach in regards to reaching out to supervisors
To Peridot: I’ll inform your manager of your incompetence.
and has sent out subjects to carry out literally 4 missions on Earth so far: checking the status of the Cluster, sending Jasper and Lapis as a bodyguard and informant, respectively, sending a team of Rubies to retrieve Jasper, AND personally dispatching a Topaz fusion and Aquamarine to collect human specimens. SHE’S ON TOP OF HER SHIT, Y'ALL.
Meanwhile, in comparison, Blue Diamond is spending her time quite leisurely by preserving, maintaining and visiting the Zoo, mourning in Pink Diamond’s bed chamber, and sneaking to Earth to mourn at her palanquin. Basically stuck in time. But how is it she is at liberty to do these things, for millennia, whilst Yellow is working so consistently?? It’s like Yellow Diamond has thrown herself into her work, and Blue is sulking. It’s almost as if Yellow Diamond has had to pick up twice the pace, in order to make up for Blue’s slack. If that’s the case, then it makes TOTAL sense that Yellow is not only concerned, but frustrated and upset.
She lookin’ like “Girl, if you cut this sh*t tf out…”
But, when Blue Diamond admits that she wanted more humans for the zoo, she drops everything to personally dispatch her subjects to gather some, for Blue Diamond’s sake.
Yellow Diamond: Is that what you want? Sapphire, has the Cluster emerged yet? Sapphire: No, it has not. Yellow Diamond: Then there’s still time. That will be all.
Based on all that, even with her strictness and severity, I think it’s clear that she’s been coddling Blue Diamond all this time, allowing Blue to grieve and lament, but not giving herself even a moment’s reprieve to do the same. That seems like the exact sort of thing an older sibling would do for a younger sibling, and it also makes sense that a younger sibling would also have the leniency to do all those things.
Now for Pink Diamond. She only has 1 planet on her mural. And if the actions and words of Blue Diamond are to be believed, all they have of her is the Earth and the Zoo. Which makes sense as to why Blue is so desperate to preserving those things, because it’s “all they have left of her."
Yellow, she made them. This is all we have left of her. These Gems, this place, and the Earth.
She didn’t get to conquer scores of planets like her peers, all she had was Earth. Then she was destroyed (but was she really???) She only had, as far as we know 3 species of gem, all Quartz types, all designed as soldiers for protection, defense, and conquest. Meanwhile, Blue and Yellow have far more speciation in their gems, technicians, engineers, construction workers, diplomats and aristocracy, etc. If this is the case, it makes sense that she would start her empire with soldiers that could keep her safe whilst acquiring new territory and then creating more gems later on, in her image. Yellow is militaristic and practical, Blue is aristocratic and diplomatic, who knows what Pink would have been? This leads me to believe she was the youngest, because she had the fewest planets, and her potential is so unknown.
Finally. We’ve come to White Diamond. We know the least about her. As previously stated, every insignia we know of, has her at the very top of the order. But check out her mural, compared to the others.
Notice anything?? Firstly, she has the most planets of any of the other Diamonds, coming in at about 13, I think. Second, she is the only figure that faces forward, while all the others have a profile view. All other figures hold their planets with one hand, extended from their bodies. But Look at how White Diamond holds hers. It’s at at the center of her being, and cupped gingerly with both hands. That’s gotta be homeworld. No other planet on any mural has the same significance. And if she is the gem holding the most significant planet, then I argue that it is she who must be the most significant gem of them all. Now let’s consider the other Diamonds. I said it made sense for the first gems Pink made to be militaristically based. I think the same applies for White. If she created the Diamonds, it would make sense that the first beings she created to be militaristic such as Yellow Diamond, for the sake of extending her empire.
But why and where did she come from???
I don’t know who created her or if she even had a creator. It may be possible that she was a singular entity and perfect being that had been alone for eons. Until she decided to create her own home and family. Or not. Whatever, ¾ backstories ain’t bad. But I definitely think the other Diamonds were created for serving the purposes of White Diamond. I think it’s very possible they are afraid of her and that she is the true villain of the series. Just think of the expendable manner in which she/they treats her/their subjects… What do y'all think??
I know it’s super last minute to post this theory, since it looks like the reveal is finally on the way, truth is I’ve been thinking of it for a while, but only JUST today figured out ow to embed images in tumblr. It was super hard to figure out before, but it looks like they made it easier, so here I a lol. Please be kind
