because I just found

anonymous asked:

when did william find out that oliver is his dad?! did i miss something because for a young boy who just found out that not only is his father in front of him but that he's also the green arrow, he doesn't look all that shocked or surprised

I don’t think you missed anything, otherwise, I missed it too. I’m assuming either William was told the truth as the reason he and Samantha had to go into hiding last season, or Chase told him (if you remember at the end of 5.20, Chase told William he knew his father.)

But if William really did just find out like that at the end of the season… it was such a high-engery and intense moment—I’m sure William was just relieved someone saved him from a psychopath and the information hadn’t really sunk in. Oliver had also just gotten his son back from a very near-death situation. He was probably more concerned with holding onto a warm body than a cold one.

It’s Okay to Say No.

If you feel uncomfortable about something in your dog’s training then it’s okay to say:

  • “My gut tells me this is wrong for my dog so I’m not going to try this.”
  • “I feel uncomfortable doing this with my dog so I’m going to stop.”
  • “This isn’t the direction I want my dog’s training to go in.”

It’s feels weirdly difficult to say no when everyone else is telling you that it is okay.

  • “I did it with my dog.” (so it should be fine for your totally different dog)

  • “I did it with my dog.” (are you saying that I don’t care about my dog?)
  • “If you just try …..” (I don’t understand your feelings of discomfort so you must be suffering from a lack of information)

  • “You are using +R methods so everything is fine.” (but Bosco will do what Martin asks him to do, even if it hurts)

It’s really helpful to have an experienced mentor who actively listens to you.

  • Martin’s mentor ignored her instinctual feelings in the past and two of her dogs were injured. She wants Martin to learn from her painful mistakes. She listened carefully when Martin explained why he didn’t want to teach Bosco an exercise.

Ultimately:

  • no one understands your dog’s capabilities better than you
  • you are responsible for your dog’s safety, and 
  • you are the person who is going to have to care for your injured dog (let’s not talk about death because it’s too sad).

I’m going to repeat myself because it’s important.

It’s okay to say no.

But it isn’t easy to do.

It struck me as odd that Within the Narrative is tagged with both “Tragedy” and “Comedy” when it is a pretty heavy story (so far), focusing around Sherlock’s pining over John, Mycroft’s death, John’s marriage problems, the return of Moriarty… it could barely be considered a comedy. 

So then @jenna221b had to go and point out that The Adventure of the Three Garridebs starts out like this:

It may have been a comedy, or it may have been a tragedy. It cost one man his reason, it cost me a blood-letting, and it cost yet another man the penalties of the law. Yet there was certainly an element of comedy. Well, you shall judge for yourselves.“

and suddenly the description for it, “about the stuff between the lines”, now makes so much more sense. 

I just needed you all to know that this person is unbelievably clever and embedded so deep in The Conspiracy that they couldn’t possibly be anyone other than One of Us, which we know they are not.

One neat thing I noticed while rewatching is that some of the paladins’ introductions in episode 1 coincide with their elements! Like:

The Yellow Lion’s element is Earth, and the first thing Hunk ever does onscreen is complain about being in the air and then work with metal. The fear of heights / motion sickness makes sense considering his affinity is with the ground, as does his talent for mechanics.

The first time we see Pidge, she’s working a communications unit. The Green Lion’s thing is Forests, and a big aspect of that is the idea of roots and connection with other living things (”we are all made up of the same cosmic dust”) and the first thing she does on screen is literally connect with others.

Red’s element is fire, and Keith’s introduction is literally him blowing something up and then punching some guys. Which. Speaks for itself honestly.

Weirdly, Shiro and Lance don’t seem to follow this trend. The first thing we see Shiro do is help Matt extract ice from Kerberos, and the first thing we see Lance do is fly the simulator, and neither introduction seems to be related to their given elements of air and water/ice respectively– in fact I’d say they seem swapped. I dunno if that means something, and maybe this observation is meaningless lmao, but it seems to hold up with the other three, which is interesting.

anonymous asked:

could u tell us more abt Sven/Keith? i saw u mention that they were a thing in previous voltrons n got curious thanks

They weren’t

But 

If any couple should have been a thing.. 

Like, Keith and Sven were obviously the closest two out of the 5 (I think it was like Hunk/Pidge, Keith/Sven who were the closest buddies), and Sven was kinda older and more experienced and seemed like he’d be the leader, but Keith was, and Sven was second in command. Which seemed kinda odd, but was never explained why it was like that. (this is what I think VLD is trying to do)

And it’s obvious (both in Golion and Voltron) that Sven meant alot to Keith, but we never get the reason.

And that, combined with Keith’s seeming lack of interest in Allura, who the american version made inlove with Keith (wasn’t the case in golion) and some funny changes to the dialog, I think made it very easy to get the impression Keith was gay for Sven haha (in Voltron, less in golion) atleast until the special commissioned episodes forced Keith and Allura together.

Like the scene where Allura takes the black lion, in golion they are all complaining about her and saying how “Sven” would have never done that, and Keith is the only one who doesn’t mention “Sven” and supports Allura piloting black. 

But in Voltron they made Keith be the only one who says the “Sven would have never done this” line, and combined with Allura’s romantic feelings for him in this version and how he keeps shutting her down all the time, it just becomes really funny 

Then you also got “Sven dying” in Keith’s arms

The happy reunion where they hold hands and look into eachothers eyes

The original ending where Keith lets Lotor destroy Voltron to save Sven’s life

I dunno, I think even back then that relationship really stood out, but was never explained. So I think it left alot of room to do something very significant with it this time, and I wouldn’t be surprised if when watching the old series before making vld the vld staff were all

 “He loves you”

and then went all TOMODAAA and wrote them the love story they deserve in VLD haha (cause seriously if any two characters should have been the “gay couple”…)

But you kno, in DotU Keith ends up with Allura (for the american audience). Sven and Romelle were an actual thing in both, but in Golion they dun end up together either (cuz Ryou dies)

So obviously they could have gone with those two relationships too and just developed them into better more believable love stories than they were in the original, but I just wouldn’t be surprised if they decided to go the Keith/Sven way either, because well, there was definitely a base there imo.. 

Anyway, @misterpoofofficial is the fandom’s expert on vintage Sheith, so maybe they can expand on the whole Sven/Keith thing more

My little sister was telling me about how there’s this old joke book in her classroom and sometimes during breaks or free reading she and some other kids will sit around and read jokes to each other.

So one time one of them read a joke that went “How do you know if your dad is a space alien? He knows how to program the VCR”

And my little sister was the only one who laughed, the rest of the kids were like ??? So she explained that VCRs were old machines like DVD players and so it’s funny because it’s so old it’s hard to figure out

So I explained that back in the day, there was a whole thing about how when VCRs were new (and pretty much through their whole use), they were notoriously hard to program and people always made jokes about how difficult they were to program.

It’s just funny to me that the joke still works either way. It used to be “This newfangled technology is so hard to figure out!” and now it’s “This old-fashioned technology is so hard to figure out!”

IM MEGA SHOOKETH LIKE? I DONT WANNA BE THAT THEATRE KID™ (which is kind of rhetorical bc i dont even do theatre) BUT MICHAEL IN THE BATHROOM IS SUCH? A FANTASTIC SONG? THE COMPOSURE OF PIANO AND THE WAY IT RISES AND FALLS LIKE AN ACTUAL PANIC ATTACK (finally feeling like you’re ready to go back out and getting another wave of emotion and crying harder) AND THE PERFORMANCE OF GEORGE SALAZAR IS PHENOMENAL? THE EMOTION IN HIS VOICE AND THE WAY HE PORTRAYS HIS CHARACTER IS JUST. OOOOOOOOOOOOO DAMN

Tabi being tickled 😂

Ethan hit 300,000 subscribers! That’s a whole lot of amazing people in this amaizng community!

I am so incredibly proud of him, and I know everyone in this tag are too! I subscribed when the channel was around 40,000 (I just changed it because I went back and found the 50,000 video and it was posted after I subscribed oops). Which isn’t that long but still crazy because he’s already at 300,000.

Not only have I found an incredible inspiration, I also found more friends than I expected through this community. I met 2 from Nova Scotia, one from Minnesota, and a few others. Everyone in the community is so nice and sweet.

Ethan is one of the most helpful “escape routes” I have. He’s such an amazing person, and he always brings my mood up.

If Ethan happens to see this than I should say some stuff to him aha.

So, Ethan, congratulations on 300,000 subscribers, you definitely deserve it! You bring joy to so many people (me being one of them) and you should definitely keep doing what you’re doing. When you’re happy, it makes us happy. As long as you enjoy what you’re doing and you’re happy with it, don’t stop. Keep that beautiful smile on your face. Keep that adorable laughter flowing. Keep doing what you love.(I suck at being original but) like that painting I painted in that picture, you are my sunshine (and the reason I made butterscotch-cinnamon pie)I love you, we all love you. Thank you for everything you’ve done.
