and very beautiful too which is the only reason i made this tbh

How Feyre’s Character Development Is Shown In The Covers Throughout The Series

I love how simply the covers of the ACOTAR series shows Feyre’s character development throughout the series. It’s mind blowing to be honest. 

You can see in ACOTAR how Feyre is standing straight. Although it could be said she’s standing upright for confidence during the last part of the novel, we know her stance could also show her complacence throughout the novel. Especially after reading the books and from the events that happens within ACOTAR. Her stance also looks stiff to an extent, showing how she is still submissive or under someone’s command. Furthermore, there is only half of her on the cover as if she’s trying to hide herself. The red in the background also indicate either her anger, loss, and/or death prior to reading the novel. The roses, obviously, fits with the title of Thorns and Roses but can also foreshadow Feyre and Tamlin’s relationship in the novel being like a rose: seemingly beautiful and sweet but, in honesty, is also harmful like the thorns of a rose. Her dress is also more conservative (?) (if you compare it to the other two in ACOMAF and ACOWAR) yet provocative (?). It covers most of her stomach and legs, showing how she was still insecure about herself and the only reasons she willingly used an outfit with a front that low is because she was either told to (although I have absolutely no judgement if she wore that willingly, she would work it just fine tbh haha). You could say her outfit is elegant (since it’s from Rhysand ofc) yet it gives off the vibe that she was made to wear it - something she is not use to given her awkward stance.

In a ACOMAF you could see how she is standing more fluidly on the side of the book. She is no longer stiff but looks more comfortable with her body. Her pose exerts confidence and strength, especially with her hand and the way it’s positioned above the wind as if she’s controlling it (which she probably is in some way if you think of Rhysand being the wind since he can fly etc., etc.). More of her is now shown on the cover as if she’s having the courage to step out of the book and show herself on the cover for what she is. Feyre’s hair blowing the way it is can show that she is in movement and could be fighting unlike her previous state in the Spring Court. Her outfit has also upgraded into more of an armour, showing that she is stronger now and fighting for herself compared to the beginning of ACOTAR when she was at the Spring Court. Furthermore, the armour could also indicate that she is working with someone else since we know from ACOTAR that the Spring Court does not have armours of the sort for females but only dresses (egh). The cover, once more, also fits with the title in accordance to the Mist and Fury part: misting is a skill Rhysand has (somewhat a foreshadow that Feyre’s mate might be Rhysand) and fury could indicate either Rhysand’s fury at the events that occurred Under the Mountain or Feyre’s fury at Tamlin showing his true self. Her tattoo on her left arm from Rhysand is also much more visible than her tattoo in the ACOTAR cover, as if she’s no longer trying to hide it like before but showing it off. The color blue is also known as reliable, calm, creative, intelligent, and maybe responsible (from a Google search I did). This foreshadows (EVEN MORE) about Feyre’s personality as we know she stopped painting for a given amount of time before starting again in the Night Court. The blue also indicates calm, intelligence, reliability and responsibility, all of the things Rhysand and Feyre are. Especially the reliability part foreshadows Feyre and Rhysand’s relationship as we know that she trusts him even though she denied it at first. The small city silhouette in the background can also show that she is in Velaris instead of the Spring Court where she only knows Tamlin’s home (palace?). 

NOW IN ACOWAR. LET ME JUST TALK ABOUT THE OUTFIT FIRST. Previously Feyre was wearing armour, as if she was an accomplice of Rhysand’s Inner Circle, working with them to take out Tamlin and Hybern. NOW, NOW IT’S A FUCKING DRESS THAT SHOWS SHE’S A HIGH LADY BUT STILL STRONG AND FIGHTING FOR HERSELF. The design (by the lovely @charliebowater ) practically exudes confidence, strength, and her ability to see what is wrong and right (especially with the eyes on her belt but that could also foreshadow Jurian since his eyeball was Amarantha’s ring). The glistening of the bottom of her dress could also represent starlight, connecting back to the Night Court and Starfall possibly. The position of her arms and the way she’s now showing off both hands and the tattoo shamelessly indicates her confidence with being a part of the Night Court and Rhysand’s Inner Circle. The way her hands are resting on her hips further proves my point of her growing confidence as she stands as if she’s ready to face anything. Also, her full body is now on the cover unlike in ACOTAR when only half of her was showing. This can be seen as her way of finally discovering and accepting her strengths and, once more, exuding confidence. She’s also holding an Illyrian blade, far different than before when she was only showing her hands in the ACOMAF cover. This shows how her abilities have furthered and that she could fight now, with a blade (cause we know her speciality is actually a bow) and with her powers (which is explained in the next sentence). The mist around her could show how her strengths in misting may be improving in the novel compared to when she was still first training with Rhysand and, maybe, her fire powers also since we can interpret this as smoke too. We already know she can control her water powers very well. The color green, after a Google search, portrays balance, harmony, nature but also envy. The balance and harmony of the green could be a foreshadowing of the ending of ACOWAR and how, possibly (hopefully, dear lord hopefully), the ending might be peace amongst Prythian once more. The nature part of the green could indicate the Spring Court and her return. However, the envy part of green, what I really think, is referred to Tamlin and his envy. I feel like he will end up finding out about Feyre being mated with Rhysand and he will be even more envious (pray to the Mother that Tamlin doesn’t do anything stupid like he already did). HER HAIR, again it’s blowing showing that everything around her might be in motion and she’s ready to take them down like she promised. The background also has mountains if you look close enough. This may be a foreshadow that Feyre and the Inner Circle may have to return to Under the Mountain once more to fix Prythian (this is making me extremely nervous). Finally, the title. Lord, Mother, I love Cassian so much please don’t let him die. The cover fits with the title of A Court of Wings and Ruin once more although not entirely: the wings part may be a foreshadowing (I’m sorry I repeat this stylistic feature so much) to, sadly, Cassian’s wings (although I still refuse, to believe it). The “ruins” part may be referring to how everything is falling apart just like the ending of the last book but, this time, it might be the actual ruin of the Spring Court and Hybern. Maybe even Under the Mountain since there are mountain silhouettes in the background. 

Well, that’s my interpretation of the covers. I felt the need to do this the moment the ACOWAR cover came out. I noticed her stance change and the way she brings herself. I couldn’t resist myself. 

anonymous asked:

dicta do you have any larry fic recs? nothing specific but just any fic that you loved a lot? thank you, your opinion on fics means a lot to me, and i feel like you'd probably know the really good ones!

Oh my gosh anon I love the wording of this ask so much. I’ve been meaning to make a larry rec list for going on a year but it just feels so official/overwhelming? But this, fic I loved a lot??? I can absolutely do that!!! and aaaaah there are SO MANY!!! I am not as organized about larry fic as drarry fic so this is, basically, like, a list of fics that stuck in my brain and/or heart and that are all so so good. SO GOOD! (and tbh there’s a whole other list of stuff that i’d rec but would want to reread before attempting commentary, and I have so many things marked for later and like….yeah….there’s a lot of good fic out there) And really, what better rec is there than “this is a fic that stuck in my brain and/or heart”?? Everyone should read them all!!

an act of faith against the night by @elianefics- M, 65k - It’s a clear path, drawing itself in Harry’s mind – where they began, how they ended up here. It’s not hard to convey all the events that led them to this very moment, with all of their twists and turns, not when Harry has been going through them again and again every night, albeit searching for something else.  “Did you know?” When Harry replies, it’s a question, not an answer. “Did you know, that it would end like this?” [Harry and Louis had never imagined that, when they would finally go back to New York, it would be as spies.] (part two of the landscapes of war series)

  • The war from ‘a prayer for which no words exist’ (recced below!) is over, or at least as over as war can be for the people who were there, which is to say….not all that over, just taking different shape. I have endless love for the way this fic treats that aftermath, the way it shows how deeply and irreversibly harry and Louis were shaped by being fighters, and it is a stunning mix of beautiful prose and important ethical questions. It also does some really fascinating meta work with Simon Cowell, the Azoffs, and the Cordens taking on central roles in the post-war nation-building project. It’s a lot for one fic to do, and this one manages it beautifully, and throws in some more beautiful NYC cityscapes, heartaching and conflicted nostalgia, and taut but unwavering H/L love, you know, just for good measure.

another hazy may by deLILAh - M, 41k - louis is a terrible poet and harry lives in the now and they have six weeks to fall in love but, really, it only takes six seconds. bookshop meets military meets summer romance au ft. marlboros, the backstreet boys, and underrated literary devices.

  • It’s been over a year since I’ve properly read this all the way and I can still see parts of it as vividly as if it had been last night. Harry’s hair, cigarette smoke curling upwards, hardwood floors, the rhythm of Harry’s feet as he runs to stay in shape for the job that will take him away from Louis, the feeling of seconds slipping away, and each of them more precious for being so few in number. This is one of those fics that made me nostalgic for somewhere I’d never been - except who hasn’t felt as though time was moving simultaneously quickly and too slowly, as though there is something precious that could fall apart at any second? And that’s one of many things this fic does beautifully: gives us the universality of their story, and reminding us of our own.

Auf Wiedersehen, Sweetheart by @conscious–ramblings - M, 19k - Louis and Harry had been childhood best friends, but had been separated by evacuation as the city they grew up in was destroyed around them. Now, twelve years later, they are both back in London, and through chance they meet again. In a time when you can’t admit to being gay, for fear of arrest, admitting to your best friend that you love them seems like an insurmountable obstacle.Featuring boxer Harry and mechanic Louis, much pining, and a lot of post war Britain

  • There’s often a moment in fic where they’re trying to figure out if the other one is gay and/or available, that’s full of a certain kind of tentative hope because there’s some kind of attraction there and what if, what if it was everything they think it might be? This fic takes that to 11 in the most meaningful way, because it’s the 40s, and being gay is a crime, and it’s not a question of whether they’re reading the right signals - neither of them can afford to send any - but of trying to accept that it could never, can never be. Set against absolutely simmering chemistry (the moment Louis first sees Harry in the ring is a thing I’m still not over) and wonderful research and settings (loved the feel of it, the way it all came to life, how present the remnants of the war were as they went about their lives) and fab secondary characters (Niall is a gem, and Liam is so how I think of him, and really everyone was just perfect) and this incredible click where you can feel the ease and understanding between them, feel the sense that they are destined and absolutely belong together…it takes that tension and longing, already at an 11, to a 12, and the ending is cathartic and beautiful and means so much more for knowing how rare and lucky and precious that moment is, and how much they’re willing to risk, and how it’s kinds of risk that are sometimes very specific to being queer in a moment when it’s illegal and how many of them are universal, and how incredible and enormous and moving a thing it is when both kinds of risk pay off.

Don’t Look Down by zarah5 - M, 92k - AU. In which Louis is a solicitor at one of London’s most prestigious law firms and Harry happens to apply for the position as his trainee. And everyone else is around, too.

  • Harry is unbelievably charming here, and it makes total sense that Louis falls for him, and as the story unfolds the clarity and meaningfulness of their connection gets more and more apparent even as Louis is fighting it tooth and nail. But it’s not miscommunication and it’s not self-loathing, it’s that Louis’ reasons are genuinely thoughtful and important (professional ethics!!!!!! With real implications!!!!) and that they’re genuinely in a difficult position and can’t be together without betraying things that mean a lot to both of them, which made me love this version of him even more and root for them that much harder. And I was already rooting for them pretty damn hard. They fit together beautifully from the first, understand each other on so many levels, are drawn together just magically…and then there are these beautiful moments (Venice omg) and heart-wrenching moments (after that dinner and that one morning and then that other one omg) and hold-your-breath moments (what is Louis gonna dooooo) and heart-pounding momebts, and I could not put it down.

Fake you’re full and feel tomorrow by theglitterbee - NC-17, 21k - Louis is a high class prostitute and the best at what he does. Harry is a hard to please 17 year old who wants to give himself completely to another man. [It contains prostitution, d/s, daddy kink, silly banter and two idiots in love.](The one with the text messages.)

  • listen this is gonna sound like a weird rec but bear with me. this fic was one of the first 1d fics I read, and on face is almost entirely made of things i don’t like, and yet, here it is. It did that alchemical thing where it just worked and it did all these things really well - like daddy kink was 100% squick for me before this and it’s still like 80% squick but this fic explained it in such a way that i got it and could understand it and see why it worked for them and what it meant for them and that psychology made it work (and made me get why it was hot? which is pretty massive for something in the squick category). and i was hesitant about their ages but it wound up being (i think not unrealistically) part of a fundamental kind of self-discovery that was part of why things between them felt so critical and important. and i was v skeptical about social media stuff in fic but this one did it so well that i got it and felt like it really enriched the story and showed a particular kind of progress and dynamic in their interactions that needed to be done that way (and wound up being really cool and impressive). and i was nervous about the potential for the dynamics to not work but they are both full people who needed each other in this very specific way and fit together beautifully and it did some of the best stuff kink fics do imo, where the kink reveals something about who they are and what they need and why they work and who they are individually and together, and so here we are, a fic with tags i wouldn’t usually touch, reccing away and considering a reread. this kind of rec can be kind of ~, i know, but the tl;dr is that this fic is so good it overcame every hesitation and left me totally engaged and impressed and invested.

Hold Me Closer by balanceds - NC-17, 36.5k - Louis Tomlinson is one of the most promising dancers of the English National Ballet, on track to become the youngest principal dancer in the company’s history. That is, until forces conspire to significantly complicate his life, including: a surprise ballet, an unfairly attractive guest choreographer, and being pushed into a rivalry with his best mate. Featuring lots of wine, dancing, pining, and a happy ending.

  • I was so surprised when I looked up the word count for this bc I would have sworn it was at least twice as longc there is so much story, and so much development, and so many moments that stick that. Watching Louis come to terms with who he was as a dancer and and person was this beautiful process that was so rewarding to read, and it was unusual and fresh in this way I really want to talk about but really don’t want to spoil. Along the way there is spectacular chemistry, zayn and Louis taking on gay swan lake, so much yearning and despair and happiness and reckoning and growth, an amazing and deeply satisfying Simon moment, and one of those h/l relationships where they make each other strong.

like a boomerang by @youwilll- M, 52k - AU in which Harry gets trapped in a lift, Louis gets stuck in a Wednesday, and it’s always February 2nd. Until it isn’t.

  • This fic is so so utterly charming in like nine different ways. Harry and Louis slot together so beautifully you can practically hear the click, and then they do it again and again and somehow every time feels fresh and important, and through it all the stakes get bigger as Louis contemplates the meaning of their repeated day and all of these deep questions sneak in, and a bit of a mystery, and a bunch of self-discovery, and a bunch of personal growth as Louis learns and thinks, really thinks, about what he needs to do, and realizes how willing he is to do it. It was so perfectly balanced between being gentle and exciting, between destiny and action, between grand gestures and quiet moments, and it settled like a warm blanket and I looked forward to every chapter so much.  And then, at the end…it was one of those stories that made me want to add and place to my travel list because the relevant moments are so well located and satisfying that you just want to be there, and it captured this particular instant - the way it wound sound and smell and how the air would feel and the electricity of it - so vividly. Lovely through and through.

Love Is A Human Right by @conscious–ramblings- M, 41k - The one where Louis has spent years getting over his ex, Harry Styles, and was almost successful. That is until Harry is elected as an MP, and Louis is given the task of getting him to support an Act of Parliament. Through tears and arguments and a heavy dose of LGBTQ+ politics, their lives finally line up. Will Louis be able to forgive? Will they still want the same thing? It’s difficult to let go of five years of hurt, but even more difficult to be close to the love of your life and let them walk away again.

  • This fic is basically everything I want in a fic, but together so amazingly well that I would never be able to put into a prompt because it’s the *how* that makes it so perfect. I mean, politics, check, LGBTQ politics, check, larry, check, vivid settings, check, emotional stakes, check, pining, check, everything, check. But the kicker is the beautiful complexity to all of it, that the story really truly understands the complexity of coming out and why people  do and why they don’t and what it mean and how it works and the ways it plays out in queer communities, and these gay leads aren’t incidentally gay, but engaged in identity and politics in a way that feels true and resonant, and that manages to both say really important things about queer communities and tell a beautiful love story about coming to terms with who you are and what you stand for and how love shapes (but doesn’t always determine, and I love that about this fic too) your priorities. Then add some simmering UST and simmering RST (hot damn i mean really) and viscerally, deliciously painful pining and hilarious side plots (SGIL!! Ziam!! Nick’s guessing games!!) and a background story that had my heart twisting for them from the first and settings that felt so real they were popping back into my head for weeks and just…superb. Superb.

a prayer for which no words exist by @elianefics - M, 65k - “Louis is a few seconds away from blowing up a rather important section of the New York subway when he sees Harry for the first time.” (part one of the landscapes of war series)

  • War!AU in NYC! Another one that I will admit fit my interests beautifully but it’s the execution that makes it work so beautifully. From the second they meet, there’s an urgency and fragility to Harry and Louis’ relationship that is a perfect fit for the politics and the newness of it all. At the same time, their connection is so certain and solid, and whether they’re waking up in the Brooklyn penthouse loft that I am still not over or getting ready to run into battle, their love casts everything else into relief and brings out some of he human consequences to why people fight and what they have to gain or lose, and shows what all they’re risking. Left me breathless in the best ways, and so glad to have gone on this journey.

Pull Me Under by zarah5 - NC-17, 140k - AU. As the first British footballer to come out at the prime of his career,  it helps that Louis Tomlinson is in a long-term, committed  relationship. Even if that relationship is fake. (Featuring Niall as Louis’ favourite teammate, Liam as Louis’ agent, and Zayn as Liam’s boyfriend, who just happens to be good friends with one Harry Styles.)

  • This was the fic that tipped me right over the precipice and properly into the fandom; how could I not rec it? Even if I wasn’t personally attached, how could I not rec it? It’s so bloody beautiful, watching Louis come to terms with the idea of being out, and to take steps towards it, and to see how his interactions with Harry change that and what develops between them. The pacing is amazing, the depiction of internalized homophobia is chest-tightening in the good illustrative moving way, the world is so immersive (like I went to get the link and 20 minutes later I was still reading and totally entranced), and their relationship 100% made my heart sing, in both the big triumphant moments and the little ones.

things have gotten closer to the sun by starseas - M, 49k - it’s strange, making the choice to face his past—it almost feels like he’s heading for the sun straight on, like he’s screaming come on and burn me, i deserve it.-when a solar flare is announced to end the world in twelve days, harry reunites with the people that he used to know better than the back of his own hand.

  • I’m not even entirely sure what to say about this fic that won’t give it away or send people running because here’s the thing: it is heartbreaking. It is worth it. It is sad, yes. It is also exhilarating and beautiful and about why love, platonic and romantic, makes the risks worthwhile, and how we know, viscerally know what is important to us. Real talk pt. 1: read it because I had terrible pms and really needed to cry. Real talk pt. 2: it worked, in that very particular way thar also made me sit and think about who and what is really important and had me sobbing in the best, most cathartic way. That lasting, deep way that’s making my chest a little tight just thinking about it, but that also means that I can smell the snow and feel the frost and see the brilliance of the sun and feel the boys’ love as - more - constant than the sun, and what the heck else could you ask for?

These Inconvenient Fireworks by mdasch and everydayslike - NC-17, 190k - Future AU in which nobody tries out for X Factor but the boys end up finding one other eventually anyway. Louis is a jaded bastard who owns a cat named Duchess and teaches drama to teenagers, Harry is an idealistic aspiring photographer/part-time footy coach, Zayn teaches English lit and wears leather jackets, Liam saves people from burning buildings, and Niall is Niall.

  • this is one of the top ten most affecting things i have ever read in my life. i don’t know how. i don’t know why. i do know that i couldn’t put it down for days and wound up finishing it in a blanket fort on a friend’s couch at 4am, literally doing that feet-kicking thing where you’re so full of feelings you can’t actually physically contain it but have to be quiet and still because the rest of the world is asleep during your emotional revelation. it restored my faith in love and hope. i am still not recovered from the thing on the soccer field at night before the train or the star tattoo or harry taking picture after picture or basically anything about it. clear your calendar if you have to but read this fic and then pls come talk to me about it because like i said i am deeply affected and possibly forever changed.

walk my days on a wire by sunshiner - M, 38.5k - Harry hums, staring at his hands in his lap, and Louis can still feel their smoothness, how solid they were in between his own. “Do you think it’s the same for us? Are we here only because of the likeliness of our jobs? Of our lives?”
“We’re here because we have inventive managers,” Louis says, giving Harry’s leg a little nudge with his knee, but all that’s going around in his head is, I think I’d be in the same spot in every possible universe.  or, when actor Louis Tomlinson used to daydream about dating Harry Styles, this is not what he had in mind.

  • There’s this one moment in Cannes when they kiss and I both really want to talk about it bc it is amazing and really would not dream of talking about bc you have to go read it yourself. So like the summary suggests, they’re in a fake relationship, and they know that that’s what it’s supposed to be, but of course - of course - there’s more to it than that. Like instantly more in this way that you can feel rolling off the screen, that is about sexual chemistry but also a certain kind of very precious fitting together. Watching them see themselves through each others eyes is beautiful, as is seeing how much it means to them to have someone else who understands the pressured of this rarefied, panopticonic world of celebrity, and who loves and validates the ott celeb performer and the human underneath the facade. It’s interesting to read in the context of this fandom, and entirely universal at the same time - who doesn’t want a partner who can love them at their most extreme and most mundane, most accomplished and most afraid, right in the middle of a stadium or right in the middle of taking up the whole damn bed?

whispering of fields half-sown by @elianefics- PG-13, 7k - “And how ironic is it that even now, at the end of all things, Louis’ mere presence makes Harry want to believe that anything is possible again. That the earth isn’t close to collapsing on itself, that the tomorrows are bright and shining and full of promises. Harry hates Louis for giving him something to look forward to when the sky only keeps getting darker. Harry loves Louis for it. ”[All of his boys come back to him in the end, but it’s Louis, Harry has been waiting for all this time.]

  • heartbreaking, lush, moving apocalypse!fic wherein it is absolutely the case that through fire and water and earthquakes and ice, there is one person Harry needs by his side. There’s Liam and Niall and Zayn, too, and what it would mean for all of them to say goodbye, really goodbye, who they all are and what those friendships mean. And Louis. Oh, Louis. My eyes got mysteriously damp in the really good way, and it made me want to sit down and write just to make words like this. The conversation at the end of this stayed with me like whoa, and my chest is getting a little tight thinking about it again. That may make some people want to X it off the list; think twice before you do. This is worth it.

Young & Beautiful by velvetoscar - M, 227.5k - Louis, to his horror, attends an elitist university in which the name Zayn Malik means something, Niall Horan doesn’t stop talking, there are pianos everywhere, and Harry Styles, only son of a drug-addled, clinically insane ex-rocker, has a perfect smile and empty eyes.

  • absolutely beautiful. so vivid i dreamt about it and then went and got a whole bunch of flowers and spent a while wandering around in fancy clothes just because it felt as though i was already living in the story so why not? And how could you not want to be part of this world that is complex and nuanced and subtle and gorgeous (which is not a way i expected to feel about a fic about rich kids btw but this fic makes them so full and the story so engaging that it happened and not only a little). Dimensional characters, wonderful tension, simmering slow burn, complexity, believable and complex psychological motivations,  theme parties, a falcon named cleopatrick, long nights, loaded touches, meaningful subplots, love, resilience. The only possible complaint is it made me want a champagne fountain, and that is not any sort of complaint at all. (lmk if you have a champagne fountain though, it’s been a few weeks and i am really still about wanting to live inside this fic, and also champagne)

anonymous asked:

tbh shiro favors keith the most n personally i think thts why he wants keith to lead voltron even though hes obviously not gna be a good leader + allura or maybe lance should lead

imo, i think Keith actually does have some leadership potential? (then again i think all of them have leadership potential), but the issues i have with him leading is that he’s way too impulsive, reckless, acts like a lone wolf wayyyy toooooo much, not to mention he doesn’t have a very good understanding of how teamwork works. i think he’s better off acting like, a second in command or something.

impulsiveness & recklessness examples:

  • driving off the face of a fucking cliff with 4 other people, one of which was unconscious
  • putting himself in situations where he keeps getting ejected into space
  • trying to take on Zarkon all by himself
  • almost attacking the sentries on the Balmera only to be stopped by Lance 
  • charging off into a village that was on fire
  • forgetting the main point of the reason he and Shiro went into the Blade of Marmora base so he could go through the trials which put the mission in jeopardy to make allies 

like…….. a lot of these things he’s done have only caused/almost caused more problems than not. (not saying his impulsiveness has always been a bad thing, but it doesn’t always benefit the interest of the team either)

acting like a lone wolf:

  • again, the attempting to ditch the team in the middle of the night
  • him also ditching Lance, Pidge, and Hunk even when Lance pointed out it was a bad idea
  • fighting Zarkon by himself,
  • going through the trials of marmora by himself

not having a good understanding of how a team works: 

  • his whole lone wolf attitude keeps him from relying on his teammates and keeps his teammates from relying on him
  • the way he tends to force people to do something when he doesn’t agree with what they’re doing (ex: trying to force Pidge to not leave the team by yelling at her and guilt tripping her, snapping at everyone and saying they have to go into the blade of marmora base when it was suggested they didn’t)

there’s also how he kinda doesn’t really have a good grasp on diplomacy and empathy too cause like

  • in the balmera arc, Hunk tried to console Shay by saying they can beat the robobeast, Hunk turned to Keith and was like “tell her Keith” and Keith was like “can we?”, not realizing Hunk was trying to reassure Shay
  • he was acting really hostel to the Arusian warrior and was like “i will fight you you little shrimp”
  • again the blade of marmora thing where, even LANCE pointed out it was a bad idea to take Keith on a diplomacy mission because what ended up happening is Keith fucking pissed everyone off by bringing a weapon with him and then later almost got the base destroyed when his lion freaked out

so while i do believe Keith has the potential to lead, he certainly doesn’t have the right traits that would make him an effective leader in this situation. i can easily predict him butting heads with Allura a fuck-ton, trying to boss everyone around, getting impatient with them, not knowing how to deal with them emotionally, getting the team in trouble for his lack of diplomacy skills, the list goes on. sorry Keef, but i think you have a looooooooot to learn about being a leader before actually taking that seat in the black lion.

(not to mention his relationship with Red was really really highlighted in this season so what gives anyways???? him and Red are like a perfect match and shouldn’t be split up because Keith is like the only one on the team who is the most compatible with Red)


as for Allura being the black paladin, i fucking love that idea. it would be so awesome to have this beautiful woc leading the team as a princess and a paladin. it would be so! amazing!?? plus, she’d obviously make a really good fit for the black lion. she’s a born leader, she’s strong, she’s diplomatic, she’s empathetic, she’s whipsmart and already holds the team’s respect as a leader. 

HOWEVER, there are ALSO some issues i have with Allura being the black paladin, mainly having to do with what that would mean for the team dynamic, as well as from a narrative’s perspective.

see, if Allura were to become the black paladin, it would just be too easy. it wouldn’t really challenge the team’s dynamic because it’s just swapping one established leader for another, so there wouldn’t really be much character development for the rest of the team.

it would also mean that they’d be taking the two leader roles on the team and conjoining them into one, which, isn’t the wisest choice. it would make things a lot more stressful for Allura because now she’s the only one leading the team and has the burden of being a princess and the black paladin, plus there’s no one else to balance things out. with that said, there wouldn’t be anyone to challenge her authority and her choices because she’d be the only one in charge. and sometimes a leader’s authority needs to be challenged because they do not always make the best decisions, as we’ve seen with how Allura and Shiro dealt with the whole Blade of Marmora thing.

Allura was very distrustful towards the BoM, and didn’t want anything to do with them. but Shiro was able to convince her to work with them. if Shiro hadn’t of been there, they never would of gained the BoM as allies because Allura would have made the wrong decision.

this isn’t saying Shiro didn’t make any bad choices either. Shiro picked Keith to go with him into the BoM base. and we all know how that went. (it was only because Keith turned out to be part Galra did the BoM actually decide to bother negotiating an alliance)

and you know who challenged Shiro for making this choice?

thats right kids, Lance did. aka something a leader would do.

Lance, who possesses SO MANY leadership traits nobody, not even Shiro, seems to acknowledge. 

Lance is a team player, self sacrificial for the greater good, diplomatic, patient, decisive, smart, empathetic, well balanced and well rounded, and! literally a natural born leader! there are so many instances on the show where Lance takes charge of the situation! even before Shiro became the “official” leader of their group, Lance was the one acting in charge of things! 

but i’m gonna stop myself before this post gets way too meta, lmao.

basically i prefer Lance as black paladin above everyone else but you guys already know that ;D

An unnecessarily deep analysis of the string motif in Kimi no Na wa

I really need to write about this.

Written on the spot. Some research might be nice but aint nobody got time for that. Also I’ve only watched it once so my memory might be dodgy.

Please note this is primarily an analysis for my own personal enjoyment, not a review. Also the views in it are purely my thoughts and opinions

SPOILERS 

Kimi no na wa is a friggin amazing movie. Beautiful artwork and solid characters aside my favourite thing about the movie is its brilliant storytelling. And I am going to deconstruct it through the string motif rn because I feel like it.

The plot for Kimi no Na wa is basically the red string of fate, but reimagined and extrapolated in a very creative way. The red string of fate connects two individuals and brings them together romantically but here it is not only geographical boundaries that are transcended, but time itself. String itself takes on multiple meanings within the context of the film. This is summed up best by Mitsuha’s grandmother’s quote, which I cbf looking for rn. Rather than string, though, the emphasis is on the term “musubi"結び. The term we use for knotting thread also means connecting/linking/binding. You can also use it to refer to tying up your hair or fastening something. It also means the end. This (conveniently) flexible term is the basis for the whole story and you see this in almost every aspect of the movie.

The start of the movie is a bunch of events told in a pretty confusing layout. In addition to the main characters swapping bodies, some of the events aren’t even in chronological order. This was evidently intentional, not only for dramatic purposes but I believe also for structural reasons.

The film is set out like a bunch of loose threads starting with seemingly unrelated events: There’s a rare comet appearing in the sky; Mitsuha and Yotsuha make kuchikamizake; Mitsuha and Taki swap bodies…But as the film progresses, just like the weaving of individual strands to make a cord, the pieces start to come together. I think the moment this truly becomes evident is right after Taki drinks the kuchikamizake. This is also the moment Taki and Mitsuha’s worlds truly intertwine.

Mitsuha making kuchikamizake binds a part of her soul to the sake. Mitsuha and Taki swapping bodies are a spiritual connection. This act binds their timelines together. The foundations of human relations, most notably love, is also based on the same concept. The film takes the motif of string and layers it through the connections of multiple events through musubi.

But what I feel truly makes this film brilliant from a storytelling perspective is the creativity employed in extrapolating this motif, especially in regards to the comet and the hairstyles. 

The way I see it there are actually only two things that connected Mitsuha and Taki before the body swap. One is the comet. Three years ago Taki witnessed the comet that killed Mitsuha with his own eyes. The other is Mitsuha’s hair cord which is something like a time paradox. Mitsuha went to Tokyo to meet with Taki three years before he knew her. She hands him the cord in her hair and dies the next day but Taki kept her cord wrapped around his wrist for three years.

I’m going to start with the comet which is actually quite a complex symbol. I think everyone will interpret it differently so here’s my personal take.

My initial impression of the comet was something like a shooting star, because it granted Mitsuha’s wish to be reborn as a "handsome Tokyo boy”. Before watching the movie I thought the body swapping would be a miracle only possible while the comet was visible. When Taki and his senpai went to the Nostalgia exhibition at the museum on their date, they saw an aged photo of Itomori. That was my hint that Mitsuha was from the past. I didn’t expect them to be only three years apart though. I thought they would be a literal lifetime apart but then romance would have been near impossible without some bs miracle. Suffice to say, there was no miracle. Instead there was a goddamn tragedy.

The film’s explanation for the body swapping was that it was all to prevent this one disaster. Tbh that sounds a bit too far fetched for me. Instead I like the interpretation of the comet as an extension of the string motif.

When Taki learns the truth he attempts to turn back time by drinking the kuchikamizake. What follows is my favourite scene in the whole movie and it starts with a wall painting of the comet turning into a piece of string. With the visual connection I could then see the metaphorical connection. The comet is another form of binding the two main characters. The comet is closely tied to Mitsuha’s ‘world’ but Taki also witnessed the comet the day she died. Thus their worlds were connected. From a romantic standpoint the comet allowed two individuals to transcend time to be together (red string of fate parallel). But by killing Mitsuha the comet also destroyed the relationship it brought about. I think we can connect this to how the town of Itomori was made from a comet a thousand years ago but another comet ends up destroying the town and killing Mitsuha. Because of this I personally also think the comet represents time. Destroying what is created is basically time itself. Time is musubi. (Additionally, by overcoming the comet i.e. saving the town, the main characters overcome time and can finally be together, because Mitsuha’s lifespan is extended. You can see this as another take on the red string of fate.)

Mitsuha is metaphorically and spiritually saved by a string. I think it is important that in the timeline where she dies she is not wearing the cord in her hair, because she gave it away to Taki who she met in Tokyo the day before and who does not remember her. Her cut hair has multiple meanings. Originally I thought it was a sign of her giving up on Taki because he went on the date with his senpai (Tessie associates haircuts to breakups and I do too, at least in anime). Then I realised she cut it after she went to meet Taki and found out he didnt recognise her. While the “breakup” haircut interpretation still stands, ultimately I think she feels betrayed which is why she gives up the one thing she believes in, her connection to him, represented by the cord. This also becomes linked to her name, which she shouts at him as she leaves the train after throwing him the cord. If I were to continue with the red string anecdote, this is where the string is cut, fate abandons the couple and Mitsuha dies.

But it is the same string that saves her. Because Taki kept it for three years and it is how he remembers her even if he doesnt know her name. Once he learns she dies everything from her diary entries on his phone to her name in his memories disappears. But the cord doesn’t. And he passes this cord to short hair Mitsuha when they finally meet at twilight.

I’m going to digress for a bit to explain why I find this scene so important. The only time Mitsuha does not have the cord in her hair is when she is sleeping, performing the ceremony, the first time she swaps bodies with Taki, and of course right before she dies. The cord is a very obvious symbol of musubi. I also think the fact it changes form throughout the film is important. At the start when Mitsuha wears it she always puts her hair in a complicated bun with the cord in it. When she swaps bodies with Taki who cant make complicated hairstyles he changes the form of the cord by wearing it in a ponytail (though initially he did not wear it at all and made Mitsuha looked “possessed”). The hairstyle was an instant way to tell who was in Mitsuha’s body, and also became a representation of their relationship.

The cord starts to change forms drastically when the pair’s relationship takes a nosedive the day before Mitsuha dies. She takes it out of her hair and the cord changes from a hairtie to a wristband/bracelet. The form of “musubi” changes, from “doing up one’s hair” to a spiritual connection between the two. This is one way Mitsuha manages to live on, because just like the kuchikamizake, the cord is a part of her soul now.

Taki returns Mizuha’s cord when they finally meet. She has cut her hair but wears the cord as a hair decoration anyway. The red string is restored and its changed form represents a new step in their relationship. Throughout the film Taki and Mitsuha have had to compromise on each others’ lifestyles. Mitsuha’s new appearance seems to be a culmination of this: the boyish haircut coupled with the hair cord. She also gains Taki’s courage, seen when she confronts her father in a very similar way Taki did in her body previously. (Taki also experiences a similar change but it is not as pronounced. As far as I know he just got “kinder”.) This is musubi because their two souls have actually intertwined. From a romance perspective, I guess this is how couples change each other for the better.

And what happens after is classic red string of fate. Interestingly Mitsuha’s final hairstyle is a half ponytail. Analysing any farther would actually be overkill though so I’m just going to leave it as a design choice.

I don’t think I’ve conveyed even one tenth of what I actually wanted to say about the film. It’s so rich in symbolism just analysing it in my head was a ton of fun. Best film I’ve ever watched in my life. Definitely want to watch it again.

On ‘Why I Didn’t Want Season 2 Of Yuri!!! On Ice But Now I Absolutely Do Need It’

Alright, listen up guys. I believe we are all pumped for season 2 of Yuri on Ice! While that is obvious I also want to point out that at the same time the opposite is true, and I’m in fact super anxious about it!!!

Listen, I want all the good Victuuri content that could come and should come with season 2. I want it all the more considering that the ending of season 1 was… not much of an ending. With no marriage, although the thought was planted in our heads, and not even a gold medal for Yuuri, the story feels unfinished and incomplete.

Yuuri’s whole storyline is about finding strength through love. Naturally, we as the viewer, automatically root for the protagonist (especially when he is an endearing inspiring individual like Yuuri, LISTEN I LOVE HIM). But another reason for me was that he was supposed to win thanks to love, and it’s important to note that among all different kinds of love that Yuuri has finally found in his life, the one that propelled his development the most was his love for Victor. This is gay and so am I.

Throughout the series we’ve been told things like “I’ll prove it with a gold medal”, “love wins”, “we’ll get married once he wins a gold medal”. Even the gold of the rings alone could have been read as foreshadowing. And tbh TBH I wanted the series to end like this!! I wanted gold for Yuuri, lowkey hoped for marriage, the end! – no season 2.

I didn’t even think season 2 was a possibility as YoI was airing, not until the very last minutes of the very last episode. For many reasons like, you know, the mlm plotline! Or money - it was a low budget anime and we had no idea it would become this popular. Also, the structure of the general plot suggested a convenient way to wrap up the series with the GPF (and Yuuri winning gold ffs). Moreover: Stammi Vicino. 

Its last words are “let’s leave together, now I’m ready” so I assumed it meant both Victor and Yuuri leaving the ice at the end. (Which would be so romantic and good, at least for Victor, let him rest blease…!). The track list got leaked early on. With Stammi Vicino both at the beginning and at the end as a duetto, it was only logical to assume the story of the song is Crucial. There were just so many signs suggesting it would go like this, but.

The way the series ended was, to put it softly, surprising (Kubo’s favourite..) To put it less softly - unnecessary, even disappointing. I really really REALLY wanted love (gay love!) to win. It didn’t and instead it was Yurio who is a kid and has much more time to shine than Yuuri.

Now, the series is about a sport - unpredictable in itself, yes, however! a writer tells some kind of a story and has a power to give the events meaning. That’s what we expect! Yuuri not winning gold frankly has very little meaning. He did improve, became stronger thanks to love, however, from the perspective of narrative, it would be more logical to give the protag, who struggled so hard, the gold medal. 

But ok ok, if the writers really wanted to be so surprising and not do that, they could have at least give us the wedding to explicitly show that what Yuuri achieved is enough. I love my boy and he deserved as much.

And did they really need to give the gold to Yurio? Yuuri lost, and for what exactly? Maybe it’s true, that among those 6 finalists Yurio was the biggest threat to Yuuri idk. Buuut again, narratively speaking, Yurio is too young to be getting all the good stuff! Both the gold and the world record on his debut?? COME ON. Btw dragging Yuuri’s Eros in ep 11 so bad was just weird and cruel. Especially considering it was after the engaygment!! The scores in GPF were weird in general, that has been discussed enough. Gold for Yurio wasn’t too good for his storyline.. Imho pride and arrogance were rewarded.

But I don’t want to get into that too much. He is talented and hard-working just… not the one who deserved gold the most.

I realize a lot of this stuff has been said before but what I’m getting at here is that time passes by and I do not seem to be able to find my chill. The thing is, I would let it go more easily if that was any other story, but it is a beautiful happy mlm story and I invested A LOT of emotions into it.

I would probably appreciate this storyline more if it was immediately followed by some positive development, but it was the finale and now we are doomed to sit and wait, months are passing by and there’s still no solid promise of positive development that could come with season 2!! And anyway for someone who is so pumped for season 2 I’m so scared to be disappointed by the writers and the fandom both (and the latter is just bound to happen…) but I NEED it to go forward.

I just wish Kubo and Sayo were more careful with their writing. I think they do not comprehend the impact Yuri on Ice had on lgb people. They’re walking on thin ice (ha ha) with this representation and I may not be a skater but I do have a glass heart… “The story that never ends" better end, and in a satisfying way!!

  • yet all he did was laugh and smirk at you , giving you sly smiles
  • jaehyun you’re not helping
  • until johnny showed up at your home one day without notice
  • and throughout the whole day he was acting all flirty and trying to get your attention with pick up lines
  • which it sure did
  • “ what do you think about this couple ”
  • “ what couple , johnny ”
  • then he pulls out his phone and turns on the front camera
  • and you stare at the reflection of both of you , trying to understand
  • “ this couple Y/N ”
  • then he snaps a picture of the both of you and shows it to you
  • and you blush and tries to ignore his question
  • but he catches on quickly and pulls you into a hug
  • “ jaehyun told me , now we’re a couple am i right ”
  • “ wow to think i actually trusted jaehyun , but sure ”
  • then he kisses your forehead and the rest of the day is spent hugging and teasing each other
  • johnny’s the type of boyfriend to either tease you or compliment you all the time , no in betweens
  • since he’s such a tall giant he often teases you about your height
  • “ my neck’s aching from looking down at you ”
  • “ don’t look then , you asshole ”
  • “ i have to see my beautiful girlfriend’s face you know ”
  • “ then don’t complain , you’re too tall ”
  • “ you’re too short darl ”
  • he rests his arms on your head/shoulders ,
  • purposely placing things at the highest shelves so he can see you struggle and try to jump to take them
  • and he always carries you up suddenly , most of time you’re screaming and hitting his back and telling him to put you down because he caught you offguard
  • but he loves it when he can rest his head on yours and that you’re just the perfect height for him to hug
  • he loves it when you initiate skinship
  • and he always returns it with 10x more
  • you could be just holding his hand in public
  • yet one moment later his arms are wrapped your waist and shoulders and he places your head on his shoulder
  • lots of making out tbh
  • but only when the both of you are alone
  • although he steal kisses from you in piblic and infront of the other members
  • he probably teases you when you speak korean and would probably make fun of you for the rest of the month with that one mistake you made
  • “ Babe do you wanna eat out today ”
  • “ Sure thing , ARASSHO ”
  • “ Johnny i swear if you say that word one more time- ”
  • “ ARASSHO ”
  • “ bye i’m leaving ”
  • “ HAHA i’m sorry it’s so cute i’m not over it , don’t leave ”
  • “ my pronunciation was really bad don’t do this to me baby ”
  • “arassho babe ”
  • although he often jokes around and teases you ,
  • he gets serious when he needs to ,
  • and his masculine side just appears
  • like when you’re sad or feeling down ,
  • he listens to your problems and gives you advice
  • he gets very logical and serious
  • the side of him you really adored
  • yet when he’s really tired or sad ,
  • he jokes around even more to cover his sadness
  • but when you ask him about it he shares his thoughts with you
  • when he gets jealous , be prepared to be shocked
  • because he gets really overprotective and manly
  • and i mean seriously ,
  • he wouldn’t hesistate to beat up anyone who was trying to harrass you ,
  • he pulls you away from them
  • and if he needs to he’d be more than happy to kiss you infront of them
  • he then softens when he sees that you’re shocked from his sudden actions
  • and he’ll hug you until he calms down
  • lots of lazy days together ,
  • since the both if you would rather stay home all day
  • your phone lockscreens are ugly pictures of one another
  • it started because he set a picture of you eating messily as his lockscreen one day
  • and to get revenge you took and set a picture of him laughing with his mouth wide open as yours
  • he tests you on your korean from time to time
  • the other boys have heard enough of you already since he’s always bragging to them about you
  • “ I really love this brand of chocolate omg ”
  • “ yes i know ”
  • “ wait how’d you know that ”
  • “ hyung’s always heading to the convenient store to get them for you . Half of our fridge is filled with it ”
  • you’d smile like crazy because you always wondered how johnny always managed to bring a bar for you everyday
  • the younger members go to the both of you when they need advice
  • or when they need someone to talk to
  • because both of you are like the two adults they can depend on

anonymous asked:

Taemin looks soso small and skinny but his cheeks are still round as ever. he doesn't like that so even when he loses weight they won't go away. it must be so hard for him;; pbs twimg com/media/C4iwWFoUcAEIrPp jpg

Ah… he’s so beautiful. Tbh, these last days I’m thinking a lot about Taemin, about what he feels. I didn’t see any people shocked about what Taemin said about boygroups concerts but there’s so MUCH behind about what he said, but… 

(There it goes my opinion because you got me ready to write in my personal blog about this LOL) I guess we get worried because we can’t forget the fact that Taemin is a human being and that he also has his insecurities and he also finds flaws on himself even when he doesn’t have them - it’s something that we all do. So I feel these days Taemin is trying to search for a more manly image, because he’s tired of being defined as cute, because I also feel he gets the meaning of cute as something femenine. I read someone’s opinion around here and it made me think about how Taemin tries really hard to create a cool and adult image from himself not only to show himself as a great singer and performer, but also to protect himself. Like… after all this time he might feel insecure about his image, because he has been exposed lots of times as “beautiful as a girl” instead of just saying he’s beautiful as the way he is. He has an image in how to be cool on his head, and it looks like he’s too focused on his chin, like you can feel he feels that having a well defined chin makes him cooler, while having cheeks makes him look cute.

The reason I was thinking about posting my thoughts was because of this, because I wish someone could stop Taemin and tell him he doesn’t have to force himself to say or act in the ways he does just to create a forced image of himself. It’s true that there’s still people who believes Taemin is cute (in a childish way) or that he’s beautiful (in a femenine way), but the true is that Taemin is cute (sensitive, adorable, funny, shy) and beautiful (handsome, has very beautiful eyes, and a special and unique mouth, etc.). This is why it hurts me so much to see him feeling so insecure about this, because you can feel how he’s actually a very confident person, but he’s fighting against the stereotypes that still follow him. Taemin has such a special beauty and personality, but he’s too focused on being manly to the eyes of everybody, for what manliness means to the public, when there’s no need to do that. It’s really hard to understand because he has been since really young - as the rest of SHINee members - exposed to the media playing a paper that wasn’t his. And I don’t know, lately it’s like he’s going again to search to create a different image just to make people forget about that old image.

Same happened with Jonghyun: he was like the cool, badass and sexy voice of SHINee but he’s a lovely piece of sunshine with a big heart and a big open mind, and some people still don’t want to accept his real self because they go like “ah, I miss the muscles of Jonghyun” like they were something that actually belong to him as a person, you know? Also Onew is not the type of leader who will go to the others and say to them how to act, he’s just a sweet person who just loves his members a lot and just loves to play with them; Key is an incredible person which such a great mind and creativity, members just enjoy playing with him because he’s such a funny and random person, and Minho is not that flaming charisma but also a cutie pie full of love and passion for life.

Ah… I’m so sorry for this long post, lmao. But I wish I could hug him and have at least 10 minutes to talk to him to tell him that he’s just purely beautiful outside and inside. Many people might believe Taemin is rude or cold, but he has such a big heart full of sensitivity and sweetness, I feel he keeps looking for an image to protect himself. Like, “bah, I don’t want to go to boygroups concerts”; he’s himself a die hard stan of Bi Rain, but he’s not the type to expose his feelings that easily. Also, this obsession toward his face… At the end he’s a normal human being full of flaws, fears, dreams… but I wish so hard to tell him that everything is ok… that he doesn’t have to try to follow the rules of genders to look cool. He’s so cool the way he REALLY is.

Wholesome Robbie Rotten headcanons

*If you want a surefire quick way to make Robbie happy, PLEASE take him to a crafts and fabrics store.  Any place where he can get supplies for his costumes. Just saying, if you were going on a first date with Robbie, that would probably be the ideal place. It shows him that you are interested in the things that he does and likes, …he might even get excited and start going on and on about fashion and the art of tailoring. He’ll have a sparkle in his eyes all the while too and please…just do it 

*There’s a reason why Robbie’s billboard and blankie both have cows on them. He grew up on a farm that had cows. He loved the cows and they were some of his only friends as a kid, …but honestly, he didn’t really enjoy farming because he didn’t have much opportunity to play and just worked every day. Part of the reason why he wants to be lazy and has such a strong dislike for sportscandy is because he really hated farming and never wants anything to do with sportscandy or hard physical exertion ever again 

*His family didn’t have very much money (I think his wiki page even said that), thus why he stayed home and helped around the house instead of going to  school. His parents tried to homeschool him…but they weren’t very persistent with it or good at it tbh. 

*A lot of the things Robbie knows he actually taught HIMSELF. He went to the library a lot when he was younger (thus, his insane overdue library book fee) and read about anything of remote interest that he could find…being that he really didn’t have anything else exciting in his life. Even though reading and math were a bit of a struggle for him, he’d still pick up books about things like engineering anyway and try to read them. It’s part of why he’s such a natural at inventing new things. You could even say that Robbie is a savant of sorts. Even though he has several neurodevelopment issues (tourettes, ADHD, etc) he excels in areas like music, inventing, MAGIC, and fashion designing. Robbie really IS an amazing and interesting guy tbh

*He’s an only child, and often spent time alone when he was young. He maaay or may not have wanted little siblings when he was a kid- but, that has NOTHING to do with why he’s always doing shenanigans with the kids! The circus, the pirate ship, and Lazy Scouts had NOTHING to do with that!!! (Or that’s what he will INSIST, anyway…) 

*For a very brief period, he smoked back in his teens. Some of the local kids at the time that were his age that went to school did it, …so he kind of started to try to fit in. But, once he learned that long-term smoking could have negative affects on your singing voice, he made himself quit cold-turkey because he loves his singing voice too much 

*Even though he is supposed to be “lazy”, he still holds beauty and his physical appearance to very high importance, and making himself look good is ONE thing that he will put a lot of effort into. And he’s also the type that very much believes in the saying that “clothes make the man”, thus why he puts so much work into all his outfits. If his outfit looks good, then ROBBIE looks good 

*That being said, being in a state of undress is Robbie’s weakness. Like, he wouldn’t be comfortable taking his shirt off at the beach because he’s convinced that people are staring at him, possibly even judging him for being out of shape. (The poor boy doesn’t realize that with his tall and thin frame, …his body actually almost looks like a model’s and THAT’S why some people stare). Also…he compares himself to Sportacus in his head a lot, which doesn’t really help. (It’s easy to do to be fair, Sport pretty much is a representation of an IDEAL  male body in peak physical condition). Long story short, the less he’s wearing, the more uncomfortable and insecure he is. 

*However, he gives zero fucks about gender roles and pretty much wears whatever he can get away with. He doesn’t feel any less comfortable disguised as a woman than he does a man, and we DO see him wearing makeup everyday. Honestly, he might even identify as genderqueer if he knew that was a thing that existed. 

*Sometimes, if he is REALLY feeling fancy, he’ll shave his legs

*He owns a small bed, but always sleeps in the orange chair because he’s too lazy to make the bed that he OWNS FOR SLEEPING 

*He can afford to live in the lair because the lair is actually cheap (no one wanted to live down there) and he sells some of the stuff he creates 

*Don’t tell Sportacus…but he actually does not mind strawberries, and maybe even kind of likes them 

Some Jacob Kowalski Love/Appreciation

Yay, I wrote it! Okay, so let’s get started here and talk about all the wonderful reasons I love Jacob Kowalski and think he’s a precious cinnamon roll :3

In case it’s not obvious, SPOILERS FOR FBAWTFT AHEAD!

Alright, so where do I start with the wonderful amazing super-mega-foxy-awesome-hot No-Maj that is Jacob Kowalski? I mean, seriously, where do I freakin’ start?

First, we have before the film; we know that Jacob fought in the First World War and then stayed for quite some time afterwards. Think about how the survivors/veterans of the First World War were traumatised and ruined by their experiences; Jacob has almost certainly seen comrades – maybe even friends – killed in battle, been close to being killed himself. He would have probably been in the trenches, cold and frightened and wondering if he’d ever get to go home again. It’s obviously affected him (rooftop scene) and it will probably affect him for the rest of his life in some way or another (World War Two, nightmares etc.).

Now, let’s talk about Jacob as a baker, I mean…wow. Baking is typically viewed as a very feminine hobby/skill – you wouldn’t expect to see a man such as Jacob wanting to own a bakery/bake himself as a profession, so I think that that’s wonderful because he’s following his dreams. He wants to bake because, quote, “it makes people happy”. Jacob wants to make people happy, which just warms my heart because seriously he’s so sweet – I also like to think that baking makes him happy too because it reminds him of his grandmother (I think it’s pretty much canon that his grandmother was the one who kindled his love of baking when he was young) and it allows him the chance to be creative (especially with the beast pastries at the end of the film). Honestly, the idea of a baby!Jacob Kowalski in the kitchen with his Grandma baking makes me want to melt into a puddle of goo because it’s so fucking sweet and pure.

The fact that Jacob can find solace and happiness in baking his wonderful pastries – despite his experiences during the war – is so beautiful and heart-warming.

My next point I want to make is that he’s funny as well as sweet and charming; it’s obvious to many, I’m sure, that Jacob is seen as the ‘comic relief’ in the group of the film, and while I maintain that he’s so much more than just “comic relief” I can also agree that he’s hilarious. He’s got amazing comic timing, says some of the funniest lines in the film, and he’s just genuinely very funny (his laugh/scream of alarm is a real gem in the film, I find). Personally, I love guys who can make me laugh – I think that if a guy can’t make me laugh/giggle, then what’s the point? If you can’t laugh with the person you love, then do you really truly love them? It’s one of the reasons why I love Ron Weasley from Harry Potter so much – because he’s funny and doesn’t take things too seriously. A guy who can make me laugh has my heart, any day.

Speaking of hearts, let’s talk about Jacob’s relationship with Queenie; I won’t go into too much detail because I’m saving it for another post dedicated to their relationship, but what I will say is that their relationship is fucking beautiful – while I’ll admit Newt/Tina is my ultimate OTP, Jacob/Queenie is so pure and special and it made me weep like a baby on all my viewings. You can tell that there’s a genuine interest in each other, right from the very start (again, I’ll explain fully in a full-out Jakweenie post) and their attraction towards each other only grows as the film progresses.

In my opinion, it’s incorrect to say that she’s only in love with his personality – because while, yes, I agree, his personality is a big part of why she probably fell in love with him…have you seen him? Like, look, we’re all attracted to different things so maybe he’s not your type, but he’s definitely Queenie’s type – and I think we can all see why. Jacob Kowalski is attractive as hell – and not just to people who have a kink (it’s not a kink, he’s actually very hot). First of all, he’s got a full head of dark hair, he looks dapper as fuck in a suit (I do love a good suit tbh), he’s got a big smile, and really ridiculously nice eyes; like, he’s so adorable and cute and hot and sexy. To add, if you watch him moving about in various scenes, he moves like he’s dancing – like, sign me up for that please! I like men who are good on their feet! I just really love him, okay?

I hate that a lot of people see that he’s chubby and immediately go “oh, he’s got a nice personality that’s why she loves him” – like, no, Queenie is clearly very much attracted to him physically too, thank you, and so are a lot of people. If you don’t think she took one look at him and thought “holy shit, I would bang him” then you’re wrong. And if Queenie doesn’t get on it then I fucking will.

As for Jacob’s feelings towards Queenie…well, we all know she’s obviously gorgeous, but he loves her for more than her looks – again, I’ll go into greater detail later, but what I will say is that while he’s firstly attracted because of how pretty she is, when he really gets to know her over dinner (learning about how she likes to cook, for example) and over the film, he really starts to fall in love. You can see it in his eyes that he’s falling in love with her hard, because she’s not only beautiful but also because she’s brave, kind, sweet, quick-witted (MACUSA escape, fight me on this), and courageous. (also because he doesn’t objectify her in his head or anything – he thinks she’s sexy of course, but she knows that he also loves her for her and not just her looks)

I was reading through one of the “making of” Fantastic Beasts books and I found a quote that said that while Jacob is a No-Maj he’s still magic in his own way – and he is! You see him smiling or in awe, or see him with his baking or around Queenie, and you see that he’s got his own kind of magic. He’s sweet, gentle (with the exception of punching Gnarlak – who, I think we’ll all agree, deserved it), kind-hearted, attractive and just such a wonderful guy. The fact that anyone could hate him greatly confuses me to be honest.

We need more love for our favourite baker – why is there not more love?

Headcanon #19 - Dating The Triplets {Ben Solo, Kylo Ren, Matt}

so before I write this I want to write a disclaimer that ofc I didn’t think of the triplets :) I saw it on thirst-disorder-confessions {which during my absence was deactivated and idk why or how etc} and it’s been in my head a lot recently and I felt I neEDED to do it okay so here we go!

Ben Solo:

☒ You met Ben Solo more likely in a bar. He kept buying you drinks and eventually you left the bar with him - to get food! Honestly, Ben is the more out-going Triplet but he certainly isn’t in any way confident in bedding you on the first night!

☒ After he bought you a late night dinner, he asked for your phone, in which you gave it to him. He texted himself so that you’d have eachothers numbers.

☒ As cheesy as it sounds, it was love at first sight for Ben, and he knew his parents would love you too.

☒ The next morning, Ben woke up on his couch, and it wasn’t until he heard his brothers make a commotion was that he realised he let you stay in his bed last night.

☒ Ben’s not too keen on pda, for the simple reason he believes not everything lasts, and doesn’t want to get too attached to get hurt.

☒ He’s not very romantic, but he has his ways of showing you he cares.

☒ He’s very protective though. Especially around his brothers, even though he knows they won’t make a move on you.

☒ He’s a passionate lover. Leaving many marks on your body to show your taken.

☒ He’s certainly not fussy about where you guys do it after the first time. Whether it be in the comfort of his home or in public, as long as it’s with you, he doesn’t care.

☒ Family. He doesn’t want a family. He prefers the idea of a pet more than children. Does that upset you? Maybe he’ll change his mind if you persuade him.

☒ He might not want children but he certainly wants to put a ring on your finger.

☒ his parents love you, and agree that you are the best for Ben.

Kylo Ren:

❏ You met Kylo on Star Killer base. You worked with General Hux, strictly professional, and the minute Kylo saw you through his mask, he swore he drooled a little bit. It was a really uncomfortable moment for him.

❏ It took Kylo months to muster up the courage to talk to you. And when he did, you were clearly scared and intimidated by him. It was at the moment, he realised he needed to try harder if he wanted to win you over, and so he did.

❏ He left you little notes on your desk at work, sent flowers to your room and even persuaded Hux to give you more breaks.

❏ “I may be a creature in a mask, but I’m in love with you y/n.”

❏ He stumbled over his words, and ever now he occasionally gets nervous around you.

❏ He doesn’t take his mask off around you. E hates the way he looks, but he also looks iDENticAL to Ben Solo, his triplet brother.

❏ You assure him it’s okay, and that you don’t care. You know your Kylo from a Ben.

❏ He had frequent meltdowns. Caused mostly by his insecurities and hatred for the world (pretty much tbh XD).

❏ you were the only one who could calm him down, and it often resulted in you staying in his quarters over night to help him sleep.

❏ Many people have seen you leave Commander Ren’s quarter extremely early in the morning to be doing a job, and so get suspicious about whether you two are having sex.

❏ When someone mentions it, you get flustered, and Kylo gets angry because he doesn’t believe you could ever want to be intimate with him.

❏ That night you turn up to his quarters late, and began to strip him of his clothing, wanting to show him that you love him and want to be intimate with him. You demand he take his mask off. You wanted to know what the man you began to fall in love with looked like.

❏ That night was extremely romantic and passionate for the both of you. It made Kylo realise that he was in love and he never wanted to loose you. Ever.

❏ Supreme Leader Snoke is not happy with the relationship development between the two of you, however; he senses the hatred for anyone else who laid eyes on you in Kylo. And believe that hatred would be his success to the Dark Side.

❏ You never meet Kylo’s parents, but you talk regularly about having children of your own some day. And about you becoming Mrs Ren.

Matt:

❍ Matt is 100% the dork of the Triplets. You met him at the cinema. There were no seats left, and so asked if it was okay to sit next to him. He agreed, shyly, a beautiful woman like you next to him in the cinema.

❍ He spilt his drink and so you offered him yours. The whole time he drunk out of the cup, he couldn’t help but think it was like kissing you. FrEAK.

❍ He loves you. More than anything. And he can tell you feel the same.

❍ Matt may be a dork but he’s an elegant lover and extremely romantic.

❍ Elegant and romantic aside, he also has his naughty side. It’s consists of him being dominant and being on top nice and strongly.

❍ He doesn’t want you to meet his brothers, in case you want one of them more than him. You told him they may look like him, but they can NEVER be him and beat his dorky personality.

❍ You get married within 3 months of meeting. Matt’s serious about you, and wants to put a ring on your finger. You reluctantly agree, a bit cautious about how fast this was going - but you understood how he felt and why.

❍ “you mean so much to me. I can’t loose you, ever. I know this is fast but, marry me?”

❍ Children are definitely thought about, and so are pats.

so @bleuczerny had this amazing pynch au where adam is dubbed as “dr. pretty” and ronan is his new patient. he comes in with injuries that start out real, but get increasingly more ridiculous with every visit. (thank you for letting me write this!)


The most interesting of stories seem to always begin with Ronan Lynch.

When he was five, and his father had denied him access to his mother’s ever famous Irish beef stew, he made it his mission to be the first to taste it under any given circumstance. No more than twenty minutes into that mission, the pressure cooker exploded, the kitchen was a mess, and both his parents found him sitting in a puddle of stew looking absolutely betrayed. He may or may not have cried at the loss. 

When he was eighteen, he took his school’s “buddy” program hosted by the local orphanage a bit too far by accidentally adopting his buddy, Opal. A legal adult by then, the school could do nothing about it, and she had been living with him ever since. 

And now, at the ripe age of twenty eight, he was being hauled into the hospital by his best friend due to him having gone through the most embarrassing fight in his life. Being Ronan, though, he had a knack for making anything sound badass, along with being blessed with the gift of threatening persuasion, so surely this wouldn’t be too much of a problem to brush off. 

Until it was.

anonymous asked:

What did you mean about Jaime giving up good memories of his mother?

When he finally dreams of Joanna in AFFC, at first he doesn’t recognize her - is she a silent sister? Is she Cersei?

He has a lot of odd blank spots around things like, exactly what he and Cersei were doing when the maid caught them. I interpret this as PTSD. The trauma, IMO, isn’t about what they were doing at all. It’s about the rather extreme (though understandable) reaction their mother had. She threatened to tell their father, as if their father knowing was the worst horror imaginable - and I don’t think that either of the twins had any understanding until then that they were doing anything terrible. Something that was their secret, yes, but children with only each other for companionship will create their own private worlds, you know? And then the fact that he was immediately exiled to the other side of the Rock, and that a short time later Joanna was dead. 

That’s a traumatic set of events in a short time, and Jaime has put memories of Joanna away inside himself and hasn’t revisited them. But why? 

I think the dream he has of Joanna provides the explanation.

In the dream he has one hand, and it’s the first time he’s dreamed of this, of *reality*. Joanna notes that everyone dreams of things they cannot have. Tywin, she says, had a horror of being laughed at, and he dreamed of his son being a knight and his daughter being a queen and both of them being so beautiful that no one would ever laugh at them. 

Jaime says well, I am a knight, Cersei is a queen.

And this causes Joanna to cry, and turn away, and leave him. Because of course, Jaime and Cersei are grotesques. They are not beautiful at all. This is difficult for Jaime to face, but he knows it’s true, which is why his subconscious confirms it, via his mother’s reaction. 

The reality that he has been unable to face all these years, and the reason he’s had to block out memories of his mother, is that since the age of fifteen…well, he’s been pretty much full time dedicated to pursuing the very act the promise/threat of which tainted the final days of his mother’s life. I’ve never been sure some of Cersei’s hatred of Tyrion maybe isn’t misplaced guilt. If Joanna hadn’t undergone such stress in late pregnancy, hadn’t been dealing with what the twins had done and frantically plotting to keep it from Tywin while ensuring nothing truly damning could happen by separating them well in advance of puberty (truly, Dorne has the right idea), would she have died? Certainly the stress didn’t help the situation. 

But Jaime doesn’t deflect guilt onto Tyrion. Projecting onto other people and punishing them isn’t his coping mechanism, any more than drinking is. His is disassociation, always has been. He simply hasn’t allowed himself to think or dream of his mother. 

And to me, that’s the biggest indicator that Jaime is done doing the very thing that so horrified Joanna. The reason he couldn’t face her, even in his memories and imagination, is that while he was actively involved in disappointing her, he had to avoid her. It is no coincidence that the immediate result of his dream of her is that he wakes up to reality - to winter - and reflects upon how not long ago his reaction to snow would’ve been that of a child with no responsibilities. But now he is different, and the letter comes, and the snow falls on it, reminding him he lives in the real world now, so he has it burned. 

Finally facing Joanna in the dream…he could never have dreamed of his mother if he wasn’t ready, at last, to stop disappointing her. Does he still have his conditioned response to the occasional thought of Cersei? Of course. Memories of their one night together were what he conjured up to soothe himself away from the trauma he underwent as a teen on the Kingsguard. He learned to use thoughts of sex to stimulate some nice dopamine to get him through difficult situations, and those coping mechanisms don’t go away easily. We see him trying to use them, with little success, in ASOS. In fact he is frustrated by how unsuccessful it is. 

I’m unclear as to why. Perhaps it’s that since it’s been exposed - I mean, two honorable women, one of whom he was attracted to in his youth, have visibly and vocally offered their disgust at his incest, so it could simply be that a light has been shone on the act and he is forced to actually look at it. And he has had an entire year in captivity to reflect, but Jaime is very very good at NOT reflecting, so I’m less sure about that element. 

A clue could be found in the simple line, “But Jaime’s walls were gone.” Not to divulge too much, but I used to be pretty good at disassociation and compartmentalization, and I remember going through a time of great trauma that wrecked that ability for me. Tbh, I miss it, at times. Maybe this great trauma he has undergone has stolen his crutch and he can’t compartmentalize, because compartmentalization is what made the crutch usable in the first place.

Seen in that light, knowing that sex memories have been his go-to disassociation technique for fifteen years now, his intrusive Moon Boy too thoughts make a lot of sense. They take his drug of choice away, make it not feel good. He cannot conjure up Cersei sex memories any more, they’re ruined. So in a way, he really has no choice but to give up that drug. 

But as always, we have to remember that Jaime is a character in a series with two volumes yet to come, and we have no guarantees that he’s going to murder-suicide his way out of the narrative halfway through TWOW. Or that he isn’t. We’ll see.

Regardless, I highly recommend people try to commit at least as much thought to multipage dream sequences like the weirwood dream and the Joanna dream as they do to two sentences about a dream about punching in Cersei’s teeth, when contemplating Jaime.

Which Hannibal Characters You Should Fight

Hannibal Lecter: You’re kidding? Right? I mean unless your ultimate fantasy is to be made into Foie Gras, absolutely DO NOT FIGHT. We all know he’s a cannibal douchebag, but I’ll be damned if I ever go within 3 feet of him unless he personally invites me to suck his cannibal dick  so anyway just don’t fight him maybe have sex with him but don’t fight him.

Will Graham: If you try to fight him you’re gonna get ur lily white butt kicked. This cute puppy’s bite is far worse than his bark. He may not look too threatening compared to HANNIBAL THE CANNIBAL LECTER but trust me on this, he will WRECK YOU and DISMEMBER YOUR BODY only so it can be REATTACHED WITH ANIMAL PARTS IN A MUSEUM FOR EVERYONE TO SEE, and he will have a boner while doing it. Also Pro Tip: Do not EVER threaten his dogs, and tbh don’t even say the word “dog” around him if you’re saying it with spite or negativity because he will absolutely kill you 100% no joke.

Jack Crawford: DO NOT FIGHT…. UNLESS you have a full, master-chef’s kitchen’s arsenal at your disposal, with any luck, you’ll be able to stab him in the neck and let him bleed out in a pantry. Beware tho: When he raises his voice/yells it is TERRIFYING. It is like Zeus decided to scream @ u and make thunder right in your very eardrums it is horrible and has made even the most hardy people shiver in fear.

Alana Bloom: I mean, go ahead and fight but this is gonna truly be one of the most difficult battles of ur entire life and tbh there’s only a 3% chance ur gonna win. First of all, her beauty will instantly blind you for several seconds, so ur already at a disadvantage; to avoid this, make SURE to wear sunglasses or at least partially blind urself, that will lessen the effect. Next, if you’re actually foolhardy to want to commit to this battle, be sure to bring a fight buddy. Your odds of defeating her increase dramatically if you’ve got someone waiting in a nearby room next to a window, ready to push her out of it. Keep in mind that her go-to weapon is a gun, to be careful of that and try to empty it beforehand without her noticing if it all possible.

Frederick Chilton: DEFINITELY ABSOLUTELY FIGHT. This guy’s got NOTHING. at WORST he’ll smack you around a bit with his pimp cane, but if you’re averagely light on your feet this battle should be like eating your favorite food, sweet, easy and totally worth it. 

Abigail Hobbs: ONLY fight her if you’re a horrible person with no sympathy or emotions, really that’s all I should even need to say here.

Freddie Lounds: You CAN fight her and you’ll probably win pretty easily, but tbh if you just wait for a bit, she’ll fake her own death and be out of ur hair anyway. If you do decide to take her on, make sure to make a cannibal joke about “slicing the ginger” because that is HILARIOUS and truly never gets old.

Zeller&Price: YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY FIGHT THESE TWO NERDS. But honestly WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO??? Their first and only line of defense is science jokes and BEES. 

Mason Verger: DO 100% FIGHT AT ANY AND ALL COSTS. DO IT. DO IT BECAUSE YOU LOVE YOUR FAMILY. DO IT BECAUSE YOU LOVE YOUR COUNTRY. LITERALLY DO IT FOR ANY REASON AT ALL. THIS CREEP TRASH CAN OF A PERSON NEEDS TO BE TAUGHT A LESSON AND YOU, MY FRIENDS, ARE EXACTLY THE RIGHT PEOPLE TO DISH OUT A CHOICE PUNISHMENT. 

Margot Verger: LMAO heeelll no. I mean, she may seem like she’s got no line of defenses upfront, but ohhh boy if you even so much as blink for half a second too long u will find yourself legit FUCKED UP and she shows NO MERCY in revenge she is truly vicious when it comes to her own self defense DO NOT FIGHT.

Winston: ARE YOU KIDDING?? DO NOT FIGHT!!! hONESTLY if you’re really even considering fighting him then u are 10x worse than Hannibal himself and I will PERSONALLY  escort you to the trash where you belong.

Parallel’s- Zac and his ‘Workshop’ for Jon and Sansa

“Besides the fact that Jon and Sansa were filmed to look like Ned and Catelyn, due to stance, attitude, scenic and shot (way it was filmed) and cooperation, there is more to this scenery.
