No Shadow Taller Than Our Souls

khasael

Summary:

Auror Potter and Unspeakable Malfoy team up to investigate a series of missing persons, and it soon becomes apparent that Dementors are involved. Despite their initial misgivings, Harry and Draco find that they need each other’s help, in more ways than one.

(I literally just finished reading this one like 10 minutes ago and it was a good good. A lot of interesting Dementor lore!!)

Reparatio

astolat

Summary:

Draco snorted. “I’m not reduced to penury. I want something considerably beyond money, and I rather think you’re the only one can give it to me.”

“You want the Invisibility Cloak,” Harry said, flatly. He’d half expected as much; it was the only thing he had that Draco could want—

“Don’t be stupid, Potter,” Draco said. “I want my reputation back.”

(I remember really liking this one and I thiiiiink this one has some good good ministry ball courtship-ing and stuff lmao


Actually looking now anything by astolat is good)


The Boy Who Only Lived Twice

lettered

Summary:

Harry Potter is an Unspeakable. Draco Malfoy is the wizard who shagged him. Adventure! Intrigue! Secret identities, celebrities, spies! It’s all right here, folks.

(THE SUMMARY DOESNT LIE. I TREALLY IS SECRET IDENTITIES, CELEBS, aND SPIESsseSSEs. But really this one is so well written and I’m a sucker for spy/thriller types and this blends the wizarding world into the genre so well im cryinnngngg)

Harry’s house is trying to kill him, and only one person can help him: pity it’s Draco Malfoy

After the war, Draco works at a tv repair shop and Harry breaks things.

"why don't you like frozen?"
  • what i mean: It's a film that, essentially suffers from an existential crisis throughout the entire two hours it runs. There's no world building whatsoever, leaving too many unanswered questions the audience in regards to the magic and lore of the land. It's inferred the trolls know everything there is to know about magic, but it does not explain how Elsa recieved her powers in the first place, leaving a pretty big unanswered question. Also, the decision to take a fantasy race usually isolated from magicks as the main sage magicians was an ...interesting choice, and would have worked out a bit better if the world was built up more. The plot is all over the place, with there being no clear antagonist until the final arc of the movie. Is the Duke of Weaselton supposed to be the antagonist? No, and he honestly doesn't even belong in the movie: in what way does this character move forward the plot? He doesn't, so why is he given such emphasis? Is Elsa supposed to be the antagonist? Through the film the audience is constantly being given conflicting views as to whether or not we are supposed to sympathsize with her or hate her, and we're never given our answer until the final arc of the movie, which is, ironically, when the real antagonist show his face: Hans. Since he is introduced as he antagonist in the final arc, it makes Hans' development as a villain feel rushed and unnatural. Such a sudden heel-face turn from charming benevolent prince to cold-blooded killer feels wrong, and considering there was no foreshadowing or dramatic irony leading up the reveal, it comes as a shock to even the most watchful moviegoers. Beyond the shock response, there is no reason for the audience to hate Hans, making him an ineffective villain all in all. The audience only hates him because he betrayed the trust that was willingly given in the first half of the film. Yes, he wants to usurp the throne and kill everyone off, but wouldn't that incentive be more effective if it were presented as such from the beginning of the movie? Give the viewers hints and clues that he is not what he seems, making the reveal of his plan much more suspenseful. Additionally, if it were addressed from the beginning, a large amount of the aimless plotless wandering that plagued most of the first three-quarters of the movie would be practically non-existant. In addition, the shock factor response wears off eventually; the impact of his betrayal means less and less to the audience each time they watch it. Part of the reason of the weakness and confusion in the beginning also stems from the fact that the movie is trying to juggle too many characters. Many named characters are completely unneeded and did not need to steal screentime (and by extension, valuble character development) from the main characters (Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and I guess Hans). And the lack of character development is bad. Really bad. Anna doesn't feel like a real person, even by Disney standards. Elsa is a bit more believable, but her "development" is rushed and inferred instead of shown to the audience as it should be. Why was there such an emphasis on the parents in the beginning if they were only going to be killed off for plot fuel? And as an audience member, I did not feel any sadness for their death or for how Anna and Elsa were grieving. Having Elsa locked in her room for upmost of ten years was just...weird. There was absolutely nothing that justified it, making the isolation feel like a cheap way out for the writers to transition from childhood to adulthood. And beyond that, Arendelle is shown to be a peaceful kingdom, so it makes no sense that Anna would not be allowed to leave the castle and walk amongst the city. If magic exists in this world, why was Elsa locked away? Why was it a secret? All of these questions stem from weak worldbuilding that justifies very little of the events of the movie. There are so many unanswered questions that rise up from what happens inbetween childhood and adulthood. Is there a puppet monarch? Was magic seen as something negative or unknown? Why the trolls. Why the trolls. I'm sorry I just do not understand the trolls. The romantic subplot again ties into making the trolls feel even more forced and unneeded and the Hans reveal stale, I don't need to go into this. From a technically standpoint, the animation is subpar compared to its contempararies. Rise of the Guardians, a movie made a year before Frozen, had better ice effects. The particle effects and textures were nothing to write home about and the numerous clipping issues are clear evidence that the final product was rushed. The character design is the biggest complaint everyone has heard the most, but, Jesus Christ, oh my god it's bad. There's virtually no variation in character design. The facial structure of all the women are practically identical. Elsa, Anna, their mother, even Rapunzel all look 100% identical. Perhaps that wouldn't be such a problem if their body types were the same as well. There's no power of silouette in the film, something that is absolutely crucial to animated film, making Anna and Elsa blend together not only in the film, but in the industry itself. They do not stand out. They are blank and bland. The music is the only good thing, and that's only considering some songs. "Let it Go" and "First Time in Forever" are strong, powerhouse showtunes that actually move the plot forward, as songs in a musical should, but "Fixer-Upper" and "Love is an Open Door," while good, solid songs, do relatively nothing for the plot can could be omitted without sacrificing anything. "In Summer" is a total joke song that literally fades into nothing--I could not recall the tune if I tried, and "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?" has a lot of potential but is, esentially, the same chorus repeated with little to no transition three times. It doesn't help that the song is also the most awkward contrived timeskip in the history of awkward contrived timeskips, again because it is never explained why Elsa is locked in her room at all. And the trolls and the--oh god. Please, all artists and writers, do NOT overlook the importance of worldbuilding. Even the dialogue is mediocre and does nothing to immerse the characters into the world around them. The resulting product is nothing but two hours of mediocrity masquerading as the best film of the decade in commercialization and ticket sales, but ultimately does nothing but leave a bad taste in the audience's mouth and will encourage Disney to continue making mediocre movies because they know they will sell and sell well.
  • what i say: because it's a bad movie

anonymous asked:

I've gone through your entire voltron meta tag and oh my God I just cant even...I'm turning into a conspiracy theorist. Also the biggest mystery in the entire series for me would still have to be Shiro. First of all I feel like he knows more about the empire than he lets on, secondly I feel like haggar did more than just give him an arm and a scar (druid shiro/robeast shiro) because why else is would he be their greatest weapon when VOLTRON. Mostly: WHO IS SHIRO REALLY? we know almost nothing.

lmao I’m so sorry anon,, but I just can’t get enough of Conspiracies 

Listen,, I love Shiro. Like, I love him so much. But you’re right, he’s a mystery. There’s still a lot about him that just doesn’t add up. For one thing, he has no backstory at all. None. Out of all the paladins, Shiro is the only one who never expresses any interest to return to Earth or his family. Even towards the end of season 2, when everyone’s saying what they’ll do after Voltron–go home, find their families, ect? Shiro says nothing. And I think it’s especially strange he’s so indifferent to homesickness, considering how he was already away from Earth for a year. His family thinks he’s dead, probably had a funeral–and that just?? Doesn’t concern him?? It’s kinda weird. 

Also his amnesia is very?? Plot convenient? Like, we already know that the galra are capable of altering memories and fabricating fakes ones so, I think it’s very likely they have something to do with Shiro’s missing memories. Especially when the druids are known for mind tricks, and Haggar took such a personal interest in him. 

And again there are other strange things about Shiro’s capture–like, why were he and the red lion held on the same ship?? Why was the garrison so adamant about covering up his disappearance, and how much do they really know? What is it about Shiro’s arm that makes him their “greatest weapon”??? What really happened that whole time Shiro was “Champion?” 

And I mean, I think Shiro’s observation here is a very good point

Because, before he escapes, he’s strapped down to the examining table again. It looks pretty obvious that this is where they removed his arm–I mean, you do see a giant blade in the background there. So if they already made him Haggar’s “greatest weapon” then?? why is he back on the surgical table again?? They must be trying to add more modifications right? Whatever they had planned for Shiro, I don’t think they were quite finished yet. 

But even if they weren’t done with his “transformation,” I’m certain they’ve altered Shiro more than they’ve let on. Like, when Shiro’s in the astral plane, and he starts dying. You see the stars all blink out one by one, and then Shiro’s body itself reacts–starts to glow like that 

You know what all those geometric lines crisscrossing up and down his body look like, especially when they glow that pink/purple galra quintessence color? Yeah, it’s just like when Shiro activates his arm. 

Except, instead of just being on the arm, you see those lines go all the way up into his head, which seems really…suspicious…and makes me wonder if he’s maybe more of a robeast than he appears. I think nearly dying probably triggered some kind of reaction with whatever quintessence and modifications the galra added. Maybe a last resort safety measure or something 

And I really hate to say it but, there’s certainly a lot of foreshadow with Shiro and the galra empire that seems to be coming to a head. Even the parallels with him and Zarkon aside, Sendak still plants this idea that he’s a broken soldier, tells him that they’re “both part of the galra empire.” Shiro is constantly grappling with this notion that he’s exactly the kind of monster the galra tried to make him. And while that obviously isn’t true, overcoming that has certainly been a big part of his character arc. And again, if Shiro does need to leave the team and go rogue for some reason, I definitely think Keith being torn between siding with him or Allura/everyone else has already been foreshadowed. 

There’s also just the fact that “Kuro” is a thing that exists. And whether he manifests as Shiro’s response to druid mind control or a clone as some sort of “back up project” well–I’m thinking we might see more of him 

Shiro is undoubtably a good person. But he’s also such a terribly unfortunate person, and even after all the galra did to him, I don’t think he’s quite out of the woods yet 

so in the trfl discord we were talking aus and…

au where vicchan isnt dead and somehow everything still goes more or less the same but anyway: my point is viktor shows up in hasetsu, but instead of saying “yuuri i’m here to be your coach”, he gets sidetracked on his way to the springs because. there is a pup. a beautiful, tiny toy poodle pup. a wiggly, happy pup who keeps licking his feet and WRIGGLING with joy and ohhhh nooooo he can’t handle this

so instead of sprinting all the way to the springs to find him in “sun’s out dick’s out” mode, yuuri just finds him holding vicchan with this look of utter adoration on his face (and tears? is he CRYING?) and before yuuri can even say anything, viktor just says

“yuuri, i’m here to steal your dog”

and then he promptly thinks ohmygod that sounded so stupid i meant to tell him i’m taking him up on the coaching offer oh my god i cant believe myself

so he just picks vicchan up and runs. yuuri shrieks

  • well you’re definitely surprised 
  • you sleep close to her, for warmth as exhaustion takes over 
  • happy valentines!

while im still thinking about it i just love it when a non black tries to tell black ppl how to feel about something like those beautiful allura edits (theres a link right there to see them theyre truly amazing)

giving a black character black features is not a stereotype??? they’re black????

you dont even have to go deep into history to get what im saying lol. look around you and you’ll see tons of examples of white european features (lighter eyes and complexions, straight noses, thinner lips) being overly favored and seen as more desirable compared to brown and black features (darker complexions, wider/bigger noses, full lips)

brown and black poc (especially black ppl oh my god) have had their natural features bashed, demonized, and treated like dirty garbage that needs to be “cleaned away” with beauty products and surgeries to be considered beautiful. so excuse us for feeling good about ourselves for once and appreciating our features on characters we love that the creators failed to give

so maybe next time yall can finally learn to stop talking over us, especially about things you fail to and will never understand. good? good.

Trish’s Photography

Trish and I got together in our senior year. We were young and dumb and found comfort in each other’s awkwardness. What started as the typical teen infatuation quickly grew into a strong, solid bond and suddenly being on the fringe of high school society wasn’t so bad. We rode out that last year together, planning for a shared future in some distant college where we could start over, make new friends, and shed the nerdy outcast label that had haunted us for too long.

“Fan fucking tastic” - Gillian Anderson

autographed photo of @jmenko​ (blanche 2nd from right)

A few of you were asking about the story behind the Blanches (haha sorry still processing this). We have been planning this for months ever since Gillian was announced to be at Wizard World. @abrasiveashley​ is the one that got the ball rolling. Everyone chose a costume change depending on if they had something like it or if they wanted to be that part. I had a bridesmaids dress I used and a jacket from my mom’s closet. Others scoured the internet. two of the blanches even hand painted their dresses! We really wanted to get it right! 

went to Gillian’s autograph table first and made sure she didn’t really see us til we got up there. I was one of the first to talk to her. She looks up, sees me, sees a few of the others, “What the?” “Are you kidding me?” “Holy shit!” “oh my god” lol all positive statements haha more of us come into view and we’re like no no theres more! she stands up, gets her phone out and steps back as far as she can. She takes the picture on her phone 😮 and sits down. 

Me: “I’m supposed to do a line, we all have lines that we memorized” 

GA: “Ok go ahead” 

Me: “Can this be her hooommmmeee?!!?” (in my attempt at a Louisiana accent)

GA: Throws her head back and laughs

We also gave her the Blanche plan photo of our names with each Blanche costume change. Made by @abrasiveashley

A few of the other girls do their lines or just thank her. Then we get to the photo op area. We practiced how we would stand with a few Gillian stand-ins. Thanks you guys! (not sure what their usernames are). 

Kaati hands the tickets to the guy. We had the group photo and a bunch of individual ones too. We brought an extra robe for Gillian and you can read Em’s ( @emaleighadeux ) story about that here 

She had to be so fucking tired, but the best thing was that you could tell she was enjoying it. Best part: I was on one side of her and Mandy  @panickingthroughlife was on the other. Mandy says sorry if my boobs are touching you and Gillian goes “Its ok, I’m used to it!” not sure if she meant in like photo ops or what, but I’m taking that how I would like to take it!

After our group photo, we got into individual photos one by one and I think it fucking blew her mind it was like a parade of Blanches. I think I maybe went second or third and she literally pulled me into her with her arm and I put my hand around her waist. Here’s mine and some of the other Blanches pics. 

I love all these girls and thanks to our mutual love of Blanche and @chewiesgirlfriend I have 9 new best friends! Thanks again Gillian!

PS we went back to get another autograph because we gave her a copy of the group photo

PPS I discovered I have no fucking clue how to hold a cigarette!
