and we can watch it all

Not friendly at all reminder that “you have to learn that not every person can be saved” is a garbage moral.

You, personally, are not obligated to save everyone you meet. But “some people just inherently cannot be saved, by you, themselves, or anyone” is garbage.

Can we please stop acting like pure evil irredeemable villains are novel or interesting. They’re not. They’re literally the norm, and they’re frequently absurd grotesque caricatures, often of mentally ill people and often of people who have experienced trauma.

I feel like I cannot make a post of any kind of even vaguely sympathetic read on any antagonistic character without at least one person jumping on the post like “but Clockie, can’t we just have someone with no morals, qualms, or sad backstory that we can just hate and watch the heroes demean and attack without any remorse?”

I really absolutely promise it is possible to feel bad for someone and want them to do better without justifying all of their behavior. It is actually completely possible to hold “you sure did kill that guy” and “you sure are coming from an awful place that hurt you a lot” at the same time without one devaluing the other.

It's all fun and games until it's not anymore. Here we go l, and you really sense the people are going to start getting wound up and upset and broken hearted all over again. They have very clearly stated that they are not a couple . If shipping can just be wanting them to be a couple that's great. But I'm just getting a sense that there's going to be a whole new round of heartbreak and I'm not really interested in staying and watching.

To believe, or not to believe– that is the question:

Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of someone else’s opposing beliefs and scroll on by
Or to take arms against a sea of make believe troubles
And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep–
No more–and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep–
To sleep–perchance to dream that Sam Heughan will show up naked on my doorstep and personally thank me for slaying shippers… ay, there’s the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams of naked Heughan may come
When we have shuffled off this preposterous idea that he loves his bff coworker,
Must give us pause. There’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of Tumblr lunatics, Th’ oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of social media, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’ unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare arse on my doorstep? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under such sumptuous man meat,
But that the dread of someone much closer,
The tall aesthetically pleasing Celtic demon, whose side
No Heughan ever leaves untouched, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather pissed off and clingy to false notions we have
That he fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the idiotic hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with a cast of untrue thought,
And enterprise of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose all common sense and dignity. – Soft you now,
The fair Trashbag! – Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remembered.

LISTEN!

I was saving some layers from 2x13 to make gifs and (obviously like any gifmaker) I kinda started re-watching some scenes from the episode. So I was watching the same at the end when Jace tells Alec he should be the new Head of the Institute and it hit me.

We all know in the books, Jace and Clary become the head of the institute, but so far the show has shown us that Alec would get that role. But what if, by the end of the show, instead of Alec being the head of the NY institute he became a Clave member, like got a really high position that he could make real changes? 

Alec is such a great leader, or is becoming one at least, and I think he deserves this. He would actually be in a place to change the relationship between Shadowhunters and Downworlders. Make new accords. Better accords. He could make a difference! Maybe Alec being head of the institute is just the first step to a great future for him. To a better future.

Now that the end of tw is near(?) I worry what will happen to the fandom. I'm still pretty new here and I hope I'll be able to participate in the events next year.

I don’t think you have to worry too much about that, anon. <3 The majority of Sterek fandom stopped watching the show years ago, and while our numbers have tapered off a bit since Derek left in s4, we’re still going strong and producing new content all the time. I can’t see that changing much just because the show ends, since most of us are either ignoring canon or constantly frustrated by it already ;P (Personally, I’m looking forward to the end of the show so our characters can finally be free from whatever new nonsense Jeff decides to throw at them next, so we can go on writing our canon divergents and future fics in peace. Maybe I’ll actually be able to get back to writing once canon’s done.)

As for events, I know that Asagi & Void are already accepting themes for next spring’s @sterek-bingo event, so that’s one to look forward to, and I’m pretty sure they’re committed to continuing Sterek Week into fall of 2018 as well.

Some people might move on to other fandoms, but Sterek hasn’t been reliant on canon for years and I’m sure there will still be events and new content for a long time to come.

So my mom watched all the episodes of shadowhunters and we watched the movie today

But she had to get readjusted to all the new faces for the characters right? This was the conversation:

Mom: (pointing at movie!Jace) That one is Chase right?

Me: Mom for the hundredth time, his name is JACE. Not CHASE.

Mom: What’s the difference? 

Me: You can’t call him by the wrong name.

Five minutes later

Mom: I think that one is Alex, right?

Me: (facepalm) Mom, His name is Alec. Not Alex.

Mom: What’s the difference?

Me: You’re pronouncing it wrong

Mom: Fine. I’ll call him Alexander then 

Me: (Gasp) Mom, you can’t call him Alexander. That’s Magnus’ name for him

Mom: But-

Me: No but’s. Alexander is Magnus’ nickname. You can’t have it.

Mom: Alright! Gosh! I don’t even like Alec that much anyway 

Me: (Gasp dramatically) How DARE you?!

I’m just over here like…I love the books, and I love the show, because I respect them as two different journeys of following the same overall story…? I have read them all (including TID and TDA), and watched all the episodes, and yet I view them as different…like things…with neither overpowering or diminishing the other? They aren’t in a competition? It’s just celebrating and enjoying the story and characters in different ways? With each–the show and the books–having their strengths and flaws? Why do I feel alone in a war?

The Burning Hearts Date Auction was a success! I can’t express my gratitude and thankfulness to everyone on Wyrmrest who came out to support the event, even if you just watched, it was most certainly appreciated! You all are wonderful role-players with unique and amazing stories, and I enjoy seeing everyone come together and RP with one another! I hope to see you all at the Burning Hearts Ball on July 1st, we will have summons available as it is out of the way! I apologize for the way the event turned towards the end, being trolled is never a fun thing, but I hope you all still enjoyed it! 

I love you all so much and I love this server as well, each and everyone of you contribute an amazing piece of creativity to the server that makes it so great! Never ever forget that! A huge thank you to my guildies for supporting me and helping me with the event as well, I couldn’t have done it without them, truthfully!

and now, a series of quotes from my sociology professor this past term...

“pull out your phones and tell me your most recent emoji, lets make this into a social experiment” 

“gotta love old dead white dudes who think they know everything about how the world works, right?”

“maybe i’m just really into cocaine, who knows” 

“the estate system is like Westeros. anyone in here who doesn’t get that, watch Game of Thrones, I highly reccommend, but I must warn you there’s a lot of boobs. all tits all the time. gratuitous titties.” 

“i know what ‘extra’ means to you guys, i’m old but i’m not dead yet” 

“so long story short, get into rich people’s social circles so you can go play polo on their yacht and be pretentious about wine to get ahead in life” 

“and by ‘we’ i mean white people; in the past czechoslovakians weren’t considered white, although lauren, you are clearly quite aryan” 

“I just want to buy a fucking birthday card, why is everything so overly gendered?” 

“can i see your penis? wait no, not like that, that was not a proposition” 

(in reference to the types of gendered toys found in happy meals) “what are boy toys? aw, fuck, wait, no…”

“i dunno, is ‘cunt’ really a gender neutral word?”

“wow, you guys really know your white people” 

“I’m not giving you a fuckin’ word bank, what is this, high school?” 

“anyone have any questions? about the test? or anything? please?” 

“i’m not gonna grade your tests i’m just going to throw them down the stairs and whoever lands closest to the top gets an A” 

“it’s not spelled ‘kahoot’ with a k, what is this, that’s the kardashian way of spelling shit?”

“is this enjoyable to you? watching me fumble around like an idiot?”

“are me and my partner considered a family? we don’t have kids, we have a dog. we’ve been together 13 years but if we didn’t have a dog we wouldn’t be a family by your standards?” 

(”i would assume that a 35 year old would know what they want in a relationship more than a 22 year old”) “yeah, you would fucking hope so!” 

“let’s watch Oprah, shall we?” 

“Karl Marx is my jam”

“apparently I am a murderer” 

“do you even hashtag, bro?” 

The idea of “unless [blank] is in jail/found guilty for [blank] they aren’t that bad” really rubs me the wrong way. First off, y'all are aware that money is power right? These celebrities yall gas up can sometimes do and get away with a fuckton of shit because they have the dough. The ones with the big money can bribe people, hire the best lawyers and all that good shit? Second when it comes to instances of abuse, how many times have we seen a news story where yet another celebrity couple is knee deep in some He Said She Said? (On top of that how many times is it a woman coming forward about abuse from a man and being ignored, dismissed alienated lmao) Like y'all do know that someone being ruled innocent can sometimes mean absolutely fucking nothing right? Or do you need to read up on some court cases, watch a documentary or two, catch some Law & Order reruns…how do I make this more clear um. The System
is fucked.

and lastly lets not act like y'all still wouldn’t coddle some of these motherfuckers and still call them your Smol Problematic Fave or say how you don’t believe they were really guilty even if they did hard time

anonymous asked:

[1] Hello, I just want to tell you how much I appreciate this blog for all the meta posts and neutral analysis. Each week after watching the new episode I always come here to read you guys’ thoughts, it’s really interesting and also makes the story more enjoyable. I would like to share with you some thoughts inspired by the director’s tweets. There’s two pics of spoiler we can see featuring a giant robot, according to the file number marked at the top left corner we can know it’s gonna happen in

[2] the next episode(13). One of the picture shows that giant robot is fighting with dragon Nina. I assume the robot is controlled by Charioce, ‘cause the design is different from other robot soldiers we saw before: the helmet and all the armor design looks just similar to Charioce’s armor. In pv2 there’s a scene about a giant hand transformed from Charioce’s weapon firing at God’s ship, and a scene showing the collapse of God’s battleship, which may caused by Charioce or dragon Nina.

[3] So in my opinion the war is gonna end soon and humankind will win(at least not quite fail), or maybe Nina will destroy both God’s and Charioce’s weapon (judge from a scene of pv3)? But taken from last episode’s hint I have a bad feeling that the incomplete secret weapon will influence Charioce itself (mentally or physically), and the second half story might focus on this part (aka Charioce’s side story).

[4] What’s more, in one of the interview the character designer said episode 20 will be very dark and sad, I think it might have something to do with it. Maybe in the end the Demons and Gods will have to unite in order to fight against ballistic Charioce…? And Nina has to make a choice between this. (From the interview with the voice actress of Nina, she said according to the director, SNB is about how people will do while facing extreme decision making.)

[5] Just some crazy thoughts in my mind. (To me, it’s either Charioce or El will lose control in the end……) Oh! Also the spoiler with Chris is going to happen in episode 16( judging from the file name again, this one is quite blurry but still legible, which can be seen from the pic in the right screen), but I think it may be something about his past, because somehow that Chris looks a bit younger than now to me and his hair seems much shorter too.

(Sorry for the break off, have to wait for an hour to finish this. ಠ_ಠ) [6] However it may turns out that I’m mistaken since there’s color confetti in the background… so maybe it’s a scene from the victory parade over the war with God? Anyway according to the staff, next episode will be the key and definitely very epic!Sorry for the long comment, just want to share some thoughts running in my mind these days… hope it didn’t bother you. And keep up all the good work! Best wishes.


WOW. Hello! To get started, I want to thanks to you for sharing all your thoughts with me through this blog, it’s always really great to read this kind of things about the future development of the story coming from people like you, and in the case of everything have you shared, I’m seriously speechless.

Well, I will share some thoughts with you too and some images so the rest can see the point of which you are talking about. 

When you started pointing out about the Charioce’s kind of mecha I feel that you were talking about this, and then, it becomes clearer if you look at the images that appear in the 2nd and 3rd PV.

It seems like indeed, Charioce is the one who start the attack again againsts the Gods using his secret weapon. And there’s one image of him:

At least that’s what I think since he’s using his armor. Plus, as you said Gods are gonna be defeated but we don’t know the reason until now, so, I think you have the correct point here, the winner of the “war” is gonna be Charioce. 

Certainly, I totally agree with you, for Charioce to win the war against the Gods could have many consequences for his character, in every sense, starting with he once conquered the demons, but to defeat the Gods would bring an even greater new meaning to him and humankind, since they have always shown their power against humans. Without doubt, it’s the route that could follow the anime from now on.

I agree about the coming episode is gonna be very decisive in many ways and it’s gonna be longer too, because I have hear that there’s no opening/ending this week and the newest one are gonna be realized the next week (14th episode), so that’s means this episode is special and really important in every possible way. At the same time, it seems there’s a confrontation between Charioce and the red dragon, there are some hints about that in the pvs.

The possibilities of a change on Charioce’s attitude due to his victory against the Gods could bring many consequences and repercussions in all the characters, and the main one could be as you say, that the Gods and the demons have to join forces, once more, against someone they haven’t been able to overcome all alone. Although I must necessarily say that I do not like the idea that all seek Charioce’s sinking only to return to the glory they enjoyed a while ago, but that has always been the nature of the Gods and the demons, so is quite understandable, even more at this point.

From the beginning, that has been felt, about the extreme decisions that have had to take some characters, as it’s the case of Jeanne and her last decision to hide his son between the demons, before this one can be assassinated, so I won’t be surprised if more of such scenes await us in the future.

And finally, I certainly had not reached a resolution with that scene shown, I came to think of many times that it would be a flashback because I didn’t find another reason for being, but it’s as you say, possibly there will be some kind of celebration very similar to the one that there was for conquering the demons episodes before. I still have no a clear context or if is a younger version of him, or even if it’s him in the actual timeline, but I think it will be a matter of waiting until the 16th episodes arrives.

I do not think your thoughts are wrong, in fact they make a lot of sense, and even more so if you compare them with the PVs and you pay attention. I think everything depends on waiting a little longer for the next episode.

Once more, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me, and if you like to do it again, DO IT, I would seriously love to reading it, especially because you seem to know the language which I do not know, and I feel that sometimes it puts me at a disadvantage, but thanks to God there are still people like you.

Have a good day and thank you for dropping by. ♥ :’) 

Tiny specks of info are falling through the cracks. Winter does indeed know Qrow, Qrow is accusing Winter of being a sellout “like her boss,” and Ironwood has “turned his back on Ozpin.” Well, we knew that last thing.

Oh yeah, wanna know something funny? I was told yesterday that Qrow’s voice actor is someone familiar. Vic Mignogna, who voiced the main character in the most recent show I liveblogged.

Good to hear you again, Edward Elric! I don’t recognize you through Qrow’s deep, gravelly, drunken voice, but it’s a fantastic reunion!

Apparently, Mr. Mignogna watched RWBY, was all “I wanna be in this,” and reached out to Rooster Teeth. That’s just amazing. I can’t imagine how the show creators felt when someone so famous reached out to them to offer his talents.

anonymous asked:

So, how did the story of Caleb and April unfold?

Well, we became friends through tumblr, I think because I started liking Hamilton (which April loves) and she was watching and liking Star Wars (which I love) around the same time (because we’re both nerds). So we were just commenting all the time to each other and then we became friends outside of tumblr and at some point we realized we liked each other. And it’s crazy because neither one of us was looking for anything at all, especially since we’re both going through seasons of change in our lives and that can be tumultuous, but I think because we were both in the same season that helped us to click so well. Anyway, we kinda both start feeling like something could happen with us and so we also start praying for each other and about our potential, and God made His plans for us so evident. Her father happened to have a conference very close to me and she was able to come with her family this weekend. Like, what are the odds of that? It’s a God thing. I’m also moving to Florida next month, and her grandparents happen to live very close to where I’ll be so that will make her visiting me there easier. But building up to her visiting this weekend we knew we would start dating. Also Thursday was my birthday, so how crazy is that. Our first date was Friday and I took her to the zoo and then we cooked a meal together and had wine and did a puzzle and watched a movie and talked about our feelings and it was great. And yeah now April is my girlfriend and it was very unexpected but so so so wonderful 😊❤️

That's remind me I can't wait to see uncle Benji with Granix's Twins 😊👀

omggg ;-;;;

plsss.. Benji would drop them. like he’d have a blunt in one hand and a baby in the next one.. Granger would have to end his life more than it already is ;-;. 

Wes would be the better uncle cause he’d feed them cheesecake at like 2 weeks old and watch all the cartoons with them ;-;;. Benji thinks Nat is chill as hell for a little kid though.

Things My Family (And I) Have Said Since My Coming Out

#36 with Seth?

“Can we just watch a movie and fall asleep on the couch?”

Your anniversary with Seth landed on a Sunday, a pay-per-view Sunday. You had a grueling match for the women’s title, one you’d been looking forward to for so long. Seth ensured you, continuously, that you’d win, that you would be the next face of the women’s division. And then he promised you that afterward, he had something spectacular planned to celebrate your anniversary.

When all was said and done, however, you were exhausted. You had the women’s title draped over your shoulder, but you didn’t think you would be able to go out and enjoy yourself tonight. So when Seth drove you two to the hotel to get ready, you stopped him just inside the door.

“Seth? I love the fact you wanna celebrate tonight but….Can we just watch a movie and fall asleep on the couch? I’m exhausted,” you explained, dropping your bag unceremoniously at your feet. 

Seth agreed and, within moments, the two of you were curled up together on the couch, movie on in the background as you slowly fell asleep.

25, for the entire team. They can either answer all together, in pairs (both guys and both girls or as partners), or individually (like The Office)

25 - My idea of a perfect date [from this]

Jaune: I’m a classic kind of guy. Movie, popcorn, arm around the shoulder, maybe some pizza… ends with a kiss… and then we go upstairs and… you know. Play board games.

Nora: We go to the arcade and I kick their ass – but it’s a challenge. Then, we go for an all-you-can-eat buffet, but it’s free because we found a coupon that dropped out of someone’s purse at the arcade. Then we go for ice cream and a walk in the park and watch the sun set over the water and then… we go nighttime Grimm hunting.

Pyrrha: I’d love to be taken out and treated nicely by someone who actually values me. Dressing up, having dinner at a nice restaurant – not expensive, just nice – having my chair pulled out… it’d be… nice to be taken care of for a change.

Ren: I’m… not sure, actually. I think whatever it was, I’d want to have a chance to learn something about the other person. Maybe do something that means a lot to them. If they’re interested in fish, we could go to the aquarium. If they’re interested in comics, we could browse a comic book store. I much prefer watching people light up and talk about their interests to trying to reach a compromise that only suits both of us somewhat. I like seeing people in their element. But… I’d probably prefer something without too many people. I… don’t think a rock concert is for me.


Jaune: Remind me never to go on a date with Nora. Nighttime Grimm hunting?

Nora: At least I tell the truth, Jaune.

Jaune: Hey, I’m completely serious about those board games. You’re looking at the reigning Arc family checkers champion five years in a row.

Nora: Can you kill a Grimm with a checkers board?

Jaube: N…o?

Nora: My date is way more fun.

I don't understand why people expect youtubers to put all their time and effort into making videos and not make money?? Like we get to consume free media so what's the problem? Girl you work damn hard, don't let people tell you that you shouldn't be getting paid for it.

Aw, thank you! I agree, it can be frustrating at times because people don’t realize the amount of work that goes in to creating youtube videos…but at the same time, I do get some money because you are watching ads before them ;) 

That is why when a youtuber or other social media person does create some paid content, I think it’s very important to support them! Obviously if it is something that interests you (like an ebook, tshirt, whatever). But I do think it is something more people could be aware of. I am more than happy to create free content for people, but I’d hope that they would continue to support me on other projects in the future x
