I miss shyan give me smth shyan plz

buddy you have no idea what great timing you have, i was just about to post this but since you asked,

my friend H (who prefers to be known as that on this blog because she’s quite shy/self-concious) made up this really cool shyan AU that we’ve been obsessed with for about a month, she finally managed to come up with a VERY basic summary for it, here we go

  • Ryan is a singer (mainly pop but it can veer into other genres at times), with about 2 or 3 albums out and a 3rd or 4th one on the way soonish -
  • Shane is an actor (mainly TV, though he’s done some films too), who currently stars as Detective Charles Christopher “C.C.” Tinsley (see what we did there) in the hit mystery drama show ‘Unsolved’ (produced by Buzzfeed Studios)
  • Ryan was asked to do a couple of songs for the about to be produced/created Season 2 of the show, but ended up with this season regular role - a detective coming in to replace the one that’s going to be killed off (Detective Maximilian “Max” Quinn, played by Brent Bennett), called Richard “Ricky” Goldsworth
  • everything kinda happens from there (Things might not be totally accurate to IRL TV production/music creating stuff but we’ve tried, lol. We’ve come up with so much stuff for this AU so far, seriously, lots of little-detail type things
  • (in the show there is an eventual romance between Ricky and CC so that really helps bring Shane and Ryan together)
  • if you’d like to know anything about it, like who has what roles in the AU (like in terms of the TV or music production) because there are MANY Buzzfeed employee/ex employee cameos, or pretty much anything else, feel free to hit up that ask box

anonymous asked:

If Rammstein were teachers which subjects do you think they'd teach and why?

First of all, that would be a dream school for me to go teach in lmfao eye candy all day. Second of all, here are my assumptions, and I’ll do my best to avoid saying music because that’s a little too easy:

Till would be a language/literature teacher. While I do entertain the thought of him being a drama teacher simply by how crazy he acts onstage, I do like the idea of him turning to his more subdued, poetic side more when he teaches youngsters. With a father as Till has he’d also feel like he has to carry that expectation on his shoulder, but he himself sees writing in different ways as his father, a more contemporary, modernized, yet timeless way. Observant, Till cares for his students very much, even as he jokes with them on a daily basis, but the children can trust to turn to him when they need wise advice. He’s a good listener and loves to hear opinions and thoughts, which makes him an excellent teacher. I can see his room being full of old books, flower pots, and posters of punny and metaphoric things. You’d most likely spot him poring over Gaiman for the fifth hundredth time in his room and working on his own poetry, many of which are published and he finely clips them out and puts them into his humble album.

I see Richard being a general teacher for kindergarten classes - he takes care of every subject for his own class. As snakelike as Richard is I feel he’s super, super protective and caring over his younglings, a very strong love almost matching that to a mother’s, if I do say so myself. That can convert very well into younger children, as they need to have that constant warmth and reassurance that’s similar to their parents’, as they are still new to being separated from them for longer periods of time. He’s got good energy and a hearty laugh, perfect for working with younger children. When he talks he seems to move his hands and have a lot of body language going on, too, and trust me, that works so well for a teacher. He’d probably have fun with games and projects…and eyeing pretty young mothers picking up their kids lmao. His room is filled with all kinds of projects the children made and bright, crazy toys, and you would be likely to find him actually analyzing each student’s progress in the files at break time and the evenings - Richard’s actually super attentive and intelligent, of course he’d take fine notes to that.

Paul would definitely be an art teacher! As I said previously, I’m avoiding answering music, so this is definitely what Paul should do, next. I’m not aware of his artistic talents, but hey, he’s got some cool, wonky tastes that sorta goes to the art hoe aesthetics sometimes, so I have faith in him. He’s very happy-go-lucky, bright, cheerful, energetic and also kind as all heck (although not with his friends, no, they get the goofball Paul), so he’d be very nice to the students, encouraging them to do their best, that it’s alright if you make a mess, there’s no real right or wrong in art! He’d come up with the most fun ideas and prompts for the children to work on, and is enthusiastic, although not hesitant to make critiques on new creations. I’m certain he’d be a good sport for children who thinks out of the box, even though he doesn’t really quite agree with the idea, but hey, they made something they’re happy with, and that’s what’s most important. His room would be the wildest gallery ever with mixtures of his own and his students’ works, messy canisters of art supplies and a table with too much paper cramped at the corner. You can spot him blaring music in her headphones as he scribbles out in his half-torn sketchbook in his free time.

With Ollie it’s no doubt that he’s a PE teacher. He’s very athletic and it shows! He’s far from those loud, jock-y types you’ll usually see though. Ollie’s actually super quiet and cares and pays more about the non-althletic children than anything. He knows they’re not going to make the national team and that’s not the point, the point for him and his subject is to get all these students moving, to learn about teamwork and to become aware of taking care of their health. He’s the coach of the football team (and get ahead with the rest of the world America we call your soccer football come on now lmao) and is very serious about his job, going overboard the teacher and crossing the father territory as he makes sure every child is happy both in physical and mental matters, so they can perform their best in their games. Ollie would also be very good with younger children, as tall and imposing as he may look to the little ones at first, they soon find out he’s all but a gentle giant persuading them to get out on the field and get some much-needed fun. His room is of course full of athletic equipment and trophies and awards of his students’ accomplishments, along with many magazines he reads at free time to entertain himself; he’s a secret collector of those tacky celebrity magazines so he could listen in to his female coworkers and understand them. Ollie can be found lingering with his sporty students and giving them tips and stratergies at free time, using every moment he can to help them go to the championships.

Schneider’s the drama teacher. As one who’s pretty into the art of the acts, Schneider would be very helpful for the students who wish to reach for the stars. He’s not one for tacky bullshit though; screw the fifteen minutes of fame you can get from social media or a cheap straight-to-video movie, Schneider is here to build the students up to the top-class high-maintenance Hollywood stars that take no crap from no one. He’s extremely disciplined and strict, more aligned to the stage plays and musicals than movies and wants his students to know the true beauty and effort the stars of the old days put onto their work, and expects students to reach at least half of that if they’re learning with him. With tight schedules and extended practices he’s a nightmare for many students who fear the wrath of the Frau (as they whisper that name in fear acrss the halls), but those children who are close to him know there’s a fun, witty goofball underneath that trusted ones can see, and that’s why they love him and pay attention to every class he teaches. Schneider’s room is full of books on dramas, plays and movies, tapes and CDs of performances, and many of his students’ photos put lovingly onto his board (he asks for candid photos from others because he loves how natural the students’ smiles are). You will see him spending time helping children improve their scripts and choreography in his free time; he’s not big on relaxing at school.

Flake would be a Biology teacher! He’s a smart bean that surely would be happy knowing all these is to be about these nasty organisms that inhabit the world we live in…yes, that includes us. We’re nasty and he will tell the students that every single lesson. He’s a good teacher, detailed, with every class getting a whole board’s worth of writing (they learn to not note everything down and that’s what he wants - they need to be able to note efficiently to prepare them for college lecture life). He’s prone to slipping the weirdest snide remarks, commentary and jokes, most that goes unnoticed for a few seconds until the children realize what he had said and breaks into laughter, and he continues on droning with a straight face. He’s very active despite his scrawny frame and uses body language a lot to accompany his teaching, which has caused more than a few items to be smacked and fall down - again, for comedic effect to keep the class’s attention to him. He’s the one who gives the most homework, but it’s all out of good concern, and don’t let him hear anyone complain or he’d give even more homework! His room is full of posters, books and specimens (he likes it when students get uneasy looking at them), and you can find him blaring music in his room as he grades student work at lunch and free time. A man needs to relax as he doesn’t relax at the same time.

And that’s my answer! Do you agree, disagree, did I completely ramble on too much lmao? Do tell me, and thank you for the question!

Ask me Rammstein things?

tygermama  asked:

Re how Len and Mick text- do you think Mickight pick up texting Carrie Fisher style? Using the symbols because perhaps they won't rearrange themselves the way letters may?

Mick? Probably not - Carrie Fisher used a LOT of symbols, yes, but mostly for added drama and emphasis and style and other things that Mick wouldn’t care too much about. He would use the occasional emoji to clarify when possible, but not generally - too much effort.

I totally agree with you that the symbols would be good because they might not rearrange themselves, but Mick’s dyslexia doesn’t just cause him to dislike reading because reading itself is hard for him, it also causes him to have an aversion to written text because it’s been hard for him for years and years and years, and he’d need quite a boost to get over that.

Now, Len on the other hand, upon his discovery of emojis, is going to drive everyone absolutely insane with them in a way I think Carrie Fisher would have greatly appreciated.

I was really reserving judgement until I watched it but like, i really liked it and I would definitely watch it as a series? 

also it really did feel like an ep of supernatural, just mostly minus sam and dean, not some weird teen drama. But also it was more badass? And also with better talking about feelings which is always nice.

Also I love Patience and I hope to see more of her adventures shooting things and also being grossed out with things if the show gets picked up they HAVE to do a shapeshifter ep pls.

(also if they could occasionally steal Jack that would be ok too because he seems like the type would would appreciate those ladies and also Jody’s cooking)

there were a lot of mortality catchphrases among the ipre whenever they were annoyed or embarrassed during their stolen century. barry’s was “i’m going to blow myself up right now”. magnus was “i’m gonna go find something that kills me”. lup was “okay, i’ll see you all next cycle”.

taako’s was “i crave the sweet embrace of death”, because he’s a fucking drama queen, but after everyone remembers and things have settled down he gets so much shit for it.

This is a dedicated message to the ones who don’t know why I fangirl SO hard over Jin: THE man can sing, can joke, can cook, is strong, is educated, is kind, can dance (and don’t tell me NO! if you can dance BTS’ choreos or keep up YOU CAN DANCE), is from a good family and lived in a cheap dorm and struggled with the boys when he could just get his dad’s business, is humble and never said that his parents were rich, loves animals, treat people well no matter their age or background or race …, expresses his feelings well, Is a family guy, eats well and feed people he loves delicious and expensive food, is not afraid to wear pink because he is a man who thinks his masculinity is not as fragile nor that wearing a color mostly worn by woman is a disgrace, IS HELLA GOOD LOOKING, AND NOW ADD THIS TO THE LIST: HE HAS ABS! And in case you didn’t know, the BOI is stronger than Jungkook but he let him win because JK hates losing (remember kind?). Did I mention that he plays instruments and is good at snowboarding too? Ah yeah, he does those and he can act too (BIGHIT PUT HIM IN A DRAMA ALREADY). Wait I didn’t finish YET. He is soooo good at variety shows and is not afraid to show who he is. Finally, he is CONFIDENT, POSITIVE and lLoves TO SHARE HAPPINESS & MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH. There is still a long list but I will let the ones sleeping on him digest this one first.

I have such a strong love of old timey werewolf stories. They often have a lot of shame associated with them, which is why they also involve religion. Even The Wolfman had a scene where Talbot can’t bring himself to enter a church because he feels too dirty.

My fascination with monks mainly comes from the drama of men who are expected to live a pious life but usually have a really hard time doing so, so they lend themselves very well to this sort of werewolf story.

imagine tom holland starring in a drama where he’s a teenager who lives in a really small and close-minded town in minnesota, and he’s viewed as an outsider by his peers. he keeps working to change his town and improve it, but his efforts are stopped at every turn because he’s written off as being too young and therefore uneducated on important social issues. and the town is threatened to soon be run by a mayor that promises to keep the small town in an ignorant and narrow mindset for years to come. but tom’s character decides to do the unthinkable and run against this man to try and save the town. he rallies his peers who once hated him so they can all come together to really tap into the potential that the city could have.

the culmination of the plot is the night of the election results. tom’s character is surrounded by his peers, they all hold their breath as they pray that he has defeated his opponent. they need him to win this election, for the sake of the town and to find validity in the idea that they aren’t just dumb kids. that they can have a say in their government, in the world they live in. and he wins, and the crowd cheers, his peers hug him and celebrate and scream with laughter and happiness. this is a new hope for their town, this young mayor will truly change the word. in the final moments of the film interviews are asking tom’s character what his first act as mayor will be, what will set the path for the rest of his career and for the future of the town. he thinks for a moment, then looks at the interviewer serenely.

“ice town,” he will say with raw strength in his voice. cut to the credits. tom holland stars as ben wyatt. the town is partridge minnesota. this is the origin story.

Lift my dress up at a party because you got dared to? I'll get you kicked off the lacrosse team.

Last year, I attended a tailgate party that so happened to be hosted by the men’s and women’s lacrosse team. I was wearing a tighter black dress with cute sneakers and a baseball cap to dress it down. Not that what I was wearing even mattered. Not even 10 minutes into this party, and my friend and I are on the lawn of this party talking to people when I feel hands around my waist and my dress completed lifted up to my waist. Mortified, I turned around and about a dozen of the lacrosse boys are sitting on a couch they brought outside cracking up.

I immediately go up to the boy who did this and gave him my 2 cents. Being a couple beers in, I had way more confidence than I would, so a few curse words were thrown in and then I began crying because I was humiliated. The boys, and even a couple girls who were chilling on this damn couch, said “You need to chill the fuck out, it was only a dare.” Crying, one of the girls stood up and said “She needs to leave. She’s causing too much drama.” I was livid. I walked away, still crying, when another girl came up to me to apologize for everything that just happened. She brought over the guy who lifted my skirt up and made him apologize. He said he was sorry, and as soon as he turned away and started heading back to his crew, they were all laughing again. I don’t know why but I was still talking to this girl for a couple minutes because she was really apologetic for what I had just gone through. That’s when the guy came back over along with another guy, where they told me it was a dare and to not take it seriously.

I couldn’t let this go. I left the party and didn’t even go to the game because I was so upset and humiliated. I talked to my dad and he told me to file a police report on them, where they can report it to the athletic director. Long process but the kid got kicked off his lacrosse team, along with the boy who dared him to do it. They also both lost their scholarships. And the guy who lifted my skirt up had to go to court and everything. It completely shocked me and took me by surprise how seriously they took this.

AKA, dare or not, do not sexually harass women. I think we all know from this year that there are heavy consequences to this and I’m glad more people are taking a stand on this.

You ever really think about how Amethyst knew nothing about herself prior to Rose dying? Because I do.

Amethyst has learned more since Rose died and Steven was born than she did in the thousands of years prior she’s been with them. More than that- she’s respected more now than she was before Rose died. They don’t carry her like a ragdoll or chuck sticks to make her leave them be. She’s not just Amethyst the troublemaker anymore. She’s Amethyst the Crystal Gem. 

It took them thousands of years to get to this point. Thousands.

But it’s always been that way for the newbie, hasn’t it? Steven is just as out of the loop. Steven has been ignored and refused information as a staple of his entire life. It’s a battle to get the simplest tidbit out of Pearl and Garnet, and they hold all the answers.

I repeat: Pearl and Garnet know everything (in a metaphorical sense). Steven and Amethyst know next to nothing.

It’s Amethyst who first gives Steven a glimpse into the reality of Gems. It’s Amethyst who shows Steven the Kindergarten, explains to him how Gems (or, at the very least, Quartzes) are made. Amethyst gives him the keys because she’s always been forced to hotwire the car, and she doesn’t want him to have to feel that rejection like she has.

Because, outside of this, what does she know about her own history? She doesn’t. She’s been denied access. 

Would knowing she was defective hurt? Of course it would. It hurts her now. But knowing isn’t a bad thing. It’s given her understanding. Amethyst finally understands why she’s felt off from Pearl and Garnet and Rose her whole life- it’s not all in her head, it’s also in her gemetics

So many bits and pieces of her life must make sense now. Why she couldn’t beat Pearl when Rose probably could. Why she’s flung more easily by corruptions and gets hurt and poofs more easily (not more often- that’s her recklessness)- her body isn’t quite normal. It doesn’t operate under normal Gem rules.

Would knowing more about Rose’s history hurt? Of course. But it’s also key to his character. Steven’s grown up idolizing Rose. Steven honestly thinks the Gems want him to be like Rose. And, one time, maybe he even wanted to be a little like Rose.

They didn’t have to tell him about Pink Diamond. They didn’t have to tell him she started a war. All they really needed to do was talk openly about her, about her flaws as a person, but, again, he’s been refused access. Pearl and Garnet don’t want Steven to know Rose the Gem, even now. Pearl and Garnet want Steven to know Rose the Idea. And, honestly, we’re past that point now. We can’t go back to that now. But they won’t go forward, either.

That’s one of the major differences between Steven and Amethyst- Amethyst has given up trying. Amethyst takes what she knows, the little bits and bobs, sticks them together with theory glue and hotwires the car. Steven has gotten the keys handed to him, once, and still has part of them now- he has Amethyst, who doesn’t lie about Gem things anymore, she just Doesn’t Know- and he doesn’t want to hotwire the car. He wants the full set of keys. 

More than that; he’s willing to fight for the full set of keys. 

He argues when Pearl and Garnet try to shut him out. He turns away from Garnet when she asks him to stay Just Because (he still would’ve gone if she had told him about BD, of course, but he doesn’t know that then). Amethyst?

Amethyst backs off and watches the drama. She doesn’t believe for a second that it’ll get him anywhere. She’s given up. In her mind, it’s only a matter of time before Steven does too.

Favourite Exhibitions [YUZURU: 1/?]  Requiem of Heaven and Earth, 2016 NHK Special Exhibition (x)

Yuri on Ice 2017/02/11 all night event report

I’m back from the event and I’ll write a report before going to sleep, mostly because I’m sure I will not be able to decipher my scribbles when I wake up… It’s not the full talk show since you can’t record it and also I couldn’t possibly write down everything, but I tried to take note of most things, especially stuff that has never been mentioned elsewhere. In the end it became quite long so I guess I was able to get most of the stuff down…

Needless to say it’s my notes, so other people might write about parts I omitted, etc. To be honest quite a few of the things they said especially in the beginning, like what the seiyuu think about their characters, is something I’ve read so many times in interviews that I could almost answer in their place, lol… I was a bit disappointed that one of the questions that was answered is the one about Chris’ mysterious acquaintance, because actually Kubo answered that in Pash already (it’s in the Q&A part I’ll be translating later), and I hoped they would feature questions about stuff that hasn’t been explained yet. Well I guess not everybody reads interviews, but still…

Due to the format of the report you can find my comments here and there, mostly in brackets.
Under the cut because it’s long.

I forgot to mention something important: the ones participating in the talk show were Mitsurou Kubo, Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Yuuri), Junichi Suwabe (Victor), Kouki Uchiyama (Yurio).

I talked about this with @aoimikans and on a discord channel Friday morning, but my thoughts were a bit everywhere and I was typing on my phone. So, I’m going to write it here now that I feel a bit more ordered. 

Izuku offering Mirio One for All was incredibly self-centered. 

***Before I go on, I will preface this by saying I know he’s a kid, he’s still learning, he still has room to grow, and I care very much about him as a character.*** 

EDIT: Izuku is also usually a selfless person. This does not change that but just shows he has some area of growth needed and needs counselling after a traumatic event.

Straight to the point. Izuku’s offer was selfish disguised as generous. 

At face value, Izuku offering OfA to Mirio who just lost his quirk could seem like a generous sacrifice - but with some uneasy undertones and the shock of Izuku offering to give it away. But it wasn’t generous. It wasn’t even kind.  

Izuku witnessed the death of Nighteye (a traumatic event, yes), and he felt guilty that 1) Mirio is quirkless now, 2) Nighteye’s wish for Mirio to be All Might’s successor was not fulfilled, and 3) he saw Eri’s accidental uncontrollable use of her quirk and Aizawa helping him as negatives. 

So instead of processing his guilt, his mourning, his trauma, he runs from it and takes the first out he sees: Offering to give Mirio his quirk. 

Now, he in no way meant to be hurtful, but that was a hurtful thing to do. On top of that, he did not give that an ounce of thought. 

We see him recall the moments when All Might told him he was quirkless too and believed Izuku could do something great with OfA and when he promised to twist fate. 

(Hell, Nighteye’s last words to him were to say he could change fate.)

Those were huge moments. Those were promises. Those were leaps and bounds of development! 

So what the hell happened? 

Izuku’s fatal flaw happened. This kid will move heaven and earth to help a friend. This kid genuinely wants to be a hero to help people and has the drive to do so. 

But as soon as he faces a setback that makes him doubt himself, doubt his “worthiness” of being All Might’s successor, he offers to give up. He has no strong confidence or faith in himself.   

We saw it after the Sports Festival before Toshinori told him he was quirkless too. We saw a bit of it before Toshinori told him he gave him the will to live again. (I fully expect a sit down conversation between them again in which they actually communicate because poor communication in stories to create unnecessary drama is such a pet peev of mine.) 

So what triggers these downward spirals? 

At the SF, it was losing to Todoroki despite helping him and freaking changing his life. Then it was the shock that there was a more experienced person being considered for One for All before him, and the doubt that followed him realizing All Might was keeping that information from him. 

This time?

He blames himself for Nighteye’s death. 

Let me pause here and clear something up. When I say self-centered and selfish, I mean it in two ways: 1) He is an immature kid still and in a way thinks the world revolves around himself in that the world is depending on him to save it. He is trying to take it all on his shoulders.* 2) He is incredibly analytical and this is the flaw of it. When he turns this critical eye inward, self-focusing, he only sees his flaws and perceived failures. That is an incredibly hard thing to deal with. (I know, I’m a perfectionist with severe anxiety, I know how harsh that inner eye is.) It can be paralyzing in the long run. 

With that in mind, let’s continue. 

Izuku feels guilt. Izuku is looking inward in this moment and only seeing his perceived failures, not his successes, not his growth. Izuku is too immature to properly deal with this sort of trauma without help. Izuku runs for an out by offering to give Mirio the quirk - to let the cup pass from him because he can’t deal in that moment. 

“Take this quirk because I am overwhelmed by my feelings of guilt. I want to throw this responsibility at someone apparently more worthy because they wouldn’t make the same mistakes as me, right? I want this grief, this guilt, this regret to go away and the first thing I can think of to get rid of it is to give away this quirk.”

Thank God Mirio is more mature and so incredibly kind.

He sees that Izuku hasn’t thought this through. He points out that Izuku would be suffering in his place in that case. He doesn’t feed Izuku’s developing martyr complex.** For that, he deserves all the awards. Despite losing the mentor that he had grown so close to, despite losing his quirk, he still looks out for Izuku in a way that is not self centered. That is one of the differences maturity and experience make. 

But, like I said. Izuku’s actions were hurtful. Izuku put Mirio in a situation where he was forced to comfort Izuku despite what he’s just suffered. Izuku didn’t see this because he was too wrapped up in his self deprecation he didn’t think about the outcome. Speaking of which…

Izuku didn’t think things through. 

  • If he gives up OfA now, he can’t become a hero.

I personally believe that Mirio could still be a hero. He’s had the opportunity to be trained and proved he can fight without his quirk. We’ve seen a number of non-combat based quirk heroes, and we’ve seen that heroes have some pretty amazing tech. 

Mirio could still manage it with the experience he has and some tech. 

Izuku can’t. 

He could probably fight a bit and outwit, but as he is now, he needs OfA to be a hero. And if he couldn’t be a hero? Then what? Then what? Hand in his provisional license? Drop out of school? Go back to before? Everything he’s worked for would be for nothing. If he took the time to slow down and actually think, he would see that. He’s a smart kid when he thinks before acting.  

  • What about All Might’s choice?

Yes, Nighteye just died. Yes, he wanted Mirio to inherit OfA. But that was never Nighteye’s decision to make. Not his quirk, not his decision. I’m honestly still salty about this. He raised Mirio to be All Might 2.0 - all the power and charisma of All Might with the added benefit of not being touched (read: stabbed through the gut). Mirio was raised to be All Might’s mirror. Looks a bit like him, similar mannerisms and charisma, his body was already trained, … and they both lost their quirk defending a girl in harms way. And they both lost their mentor. 

The world never needed another All Might, but Nighteye didn’t see that.  

Nighteye didn’t respect All Might’s decision to return to hero work, he didn’t respect All Might’s choice of successor. And in both cases he lashed out and said something incredibly hurtful. That All Might was fated to die. That Mirio should have inherited OfA. (I’m still salty as the Dead Sea. (ง'̀-‘́)ง I will fight someone.) 

Izuku - in his downward spiral - remembers his promise to All Might but offers the quirk anyway. He doesn’t believe in himself and by extension doesn’t believe in All Might’s choice to train him for 10 months and give him his quirk and his time and his devotion.*** 

Does… Does no one actually care what All Might thinks? (He has flaws and contributed to all this in a way but I’ll get to that in a second.) That his legacy is his to pass on? That he entrusted not only his own quirk but his predecessors’ quirk? That he’s a pretty damn good judge of character and to him Izuku has proved himself time and time and time again? Do his opinions, his thoughts mean nothing?

  • What about all the help and support he’s been given?

Izuku has made amazing friends and is an inspiration and driving force for his class. He saved Todoroki from his self-hatred, he saved Iida’s life, he inspires his class along with Bakugou, he is a driving force for Bakugou as well. He doesn’t hesitate to help others. But… 

But… He thinks poorly of himself when he needs help. He is overly critical of himself when he reaches his natural limit. He is overly critical when he is given help. He’s gone beyond humble and into self deprecation and blaming himself for things he cannot control. It’s part of his fatal flaw. Perhaps borne from Aizawa’s necessary scolding at the beginning and Recovery Girl’s decision to not help extreme, self inflicted injuries. He brought those on himself, and they were necessary lessons and reminders that he has limits. But he takes them to the n-th degree when he criticizes himself. 

The hypocrisy or paradox of this is he thinks no less of those he has helped, but does not apply that to himself. It is another kind of self-centered, critical thought that in his mind separates him from the others. It’s no good. 

If he were to give away OfA, he would be throwing away all the help and support he has been given. You don’t do that, kid… You just don’t. 

Izuku has a difficult fatal flaw, and if he isn’t careful he will end up like All Might.

All Might’s flaw that did him in was his drive for revenge against All for One for killing Nana. He caved to his flaw and was rewarded with the injury in his side and his forced, early retirement. The moment he stopped acting like a hero, he was punished by the narrative gods.

Izuku’s fatal flaw is his self doubt and lack of self confidence. He is overly critical of himself. He focuses on his perceived failures rather than his growth and successes. Despite this, he’s gotten off easy so far. He has been reassured by All Might twice. But had it been Aizawa listening in? What Izuku did there was so severe I believe Aizawa would have expelled him on the spot - or at least threatened to. Wishy-washy resolve doesn’t belong in a future hero. He urgently needs to address this. 

How to address this:

 I think we have another All Might and Izuku heart-to-heart serious talk coming. 

When I saw this image of Toshinori, I thought perhaps he felt frustrated or betrayed by what he heard. He just lost one of his oldest friends. He probably feels helpless since this was the first big raid that he couldn’t assist - and the raid and following police escort resulted in hero fatalities. And then he hears Izuku - the boy that gave him his will to live, the boy he believes in, the boy he has grown close to in a father-son way, the boy that promised to stand by him and help twist fate so he isn’t murdered - offer to give OfA away. He must feel like everything is slipping out of his control, everything he has lived is changing. He looks like he is in turmoil.  

@aoimikans​ had another take on the image. That All Might looked frustrated because he realizes he has neglected Izuku. Neglected to properly cultivate him and care for his mental well-being. And honestly, I am leaning toward this as well because he has shown that he is aware that the kids need to have their mental states cared for too (see: what he says to Aizawa after Izuku and Bakugou’s spat). 

I think this will lead to another good talk during which Toshinori will hopefully address and start to mend Izuku’s fatal flaw. To get him to realize how much he’s grown (like the before and after picture on the beach). To see his successes whether or not they are perfect successes. To get him to realize it is okay to need help (USJ, the summer camp, Kamino). To hug him and tell him that he is proud to have him as his successor.**** That Izuku needs to have more confidence and faith in himself. To help him healthily deal with loss and trauma (okay, maybe not Toshinori’s forte). To support him as he is. 

To take time to fix some of the flaws All Might contributed to: That Izuku doesn’t have to have the world on his shoulders from the get go. That he doesn’t have to take on responsibility for things out of his control. That he doesn’t need to be the next All Might, but needs to be himself - to do what he can as the hero Deku. To start chipping away at that martyr complex and self deprecating inward critical view of himself. So that the next time there is a setback, Izuku doesn’t go through the same damn motions and stunt his growth. 

My frustration

Honestly, the fact that Izuku keeps falling back into this same pattern without learning from it is really frustrating because dang it, he’s such a good kid and tries so hard. He just needs to have an ounce of faith in himself. Screw being “worthy” of One for All. Gran Torino was right, Izuku still sees it as more special than it is and that shackles him. He is a hero because of who he is and has grown into. One for All helped, but it is a tool, not anything sacred. 

tldr: *inhale* BOI


* A flaw in All Might’s teaching that by God needs to be addressed damn it. 

** All Might… talk to your son about this.

*** Mufasa voice:  “You have forgotten who you are, and so forgotten me.”

**** I need quality Dad Might moments like I need water.

Reylo-fangirl-screaming-moments in TLJ.

- The Force bond!! I mean, it’s MAGIC. Kylo sliding in the hall to chase after her!

- Rey basically looking up and down at shirtless Kylo, (OVARIES EXPLOSION) asking him to cover himself but he literally says no?! RIAN WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT??? THE SEXUAL UNDERDONE!

- Kylo taking off his gloves to touch Rey’s hand. 

- Luke basically “AIN’T GONNA HAVE SEX ON MY ISLAND” Freaking censorship. Too funny. 

- Kylo basically saying she’s everything to him. Offering her the throne, the world. The conflict. The drama! And she leaves him…

- …because Rey’s biggest problem is KYLO…all she wants is to leave with Ben. 

- The way they look at each other in the elevator scene! The puppy face! I was thinking that they were going to kiss…

- When Kylo kills Snoke, the eye contact…

- The god damn Praetorian guard scene. Rey saves Kylo as Kylo saved Rey. 

- Kylo basically going CRAZY after she leaves him. Full-fledged burning rage. He loves her. He hates her. He wants to make love to her. He wants to kill her. Those blinded rage moment speak VOLUMES. She means the whole world to him. 

- and the end…Kylo kneeling like a Knight in front of his Queen. Rey looking down at him…

anonymous asked:

I understand that reputation follows a timeline, but why are delicate and end game at the beginning of the album since they’re supposedly about Joe?

i think tracks 1 to 7 tell taylor’s story with an air of fear of her reputation and the effect it had on her line of thinking. That doesnt mean it’s not telling her story any less but it’s telling one side of it, if you will. it’s the newsprint side, kinda. then 8-15 are the real taylor without any of that.

Part One: Their story but with her repuation’s effect on it 

- Ready For it? — they met each other, he was a ghost (for reasons Taylor does not give us) she was (supposedly) a robber, a stealer of hearts. Despite these outside opinions they see a future with each other.

- End Game – their attraction to one another was instant - they couldnt ignore it. He was into her despite what society was telling him to think, due to her ‘big reputation’. She tried to push away but she realized he’s had a permanent effect on her and she wants him around - forever 

- I did something bad - – i still think this one is interesting bc the title lends you to think one thing - it’s a statement. “i did something bad” - but the lyric throughout is “they say i did something bad” - so did she really do anything bad at all, or is she just being accused of it, like the witches were?. And she toys with the whole, if you say im this bad person then go ahead, say it. light me up. accuse me. i cant stop you.

Don’t Blame Me - here i think she’s toying around with the part of her rep of falling in love too fast, being ‘blind for love’, and the great part about this song is that she leaves you not knowing whether loving joe actually is like a drug or an addiction to her or if she’s being exaggerative. Because sometimes when you fall in love that is actually how it feels. Either way, she sees herself with him for the rest of her life.

- Delicate - taylor is questioning how someone could like her despite her reputation never having been worse and the song, to me, shows a turning point where she says … ok, so given all the shit everyones saying about me, he’s not running away…he must really like me .. for me. And it talks of the turning point of the rs turning into something, but a nervousness at the same time. Dont leave, i dont want to share you, think of all that we could do, i know i said a lot of stuff did i blow it, do you feel this too, do you dream of me, it’s all the vulnerabilities you feel at the beginning of a relationship when you don’t want to fuck things up because things are… delicate.

Lwymmd - Everything that happened with all the drama, her reputation getting marred, everything that everyone was saying, brought her to a realization that she needed to regroup. That meant a priority change, an acceptance of how things are now, and that is what the ‘the old taylor is dead’ speaks to.

So it Goes – death of the old taylor, once she accepted it, led her to a place of moving on to the next chapter in her life. And that is a chapter with Joe. And it’s undeniable the effect they have on each other, a magic they work. Also,‘so it goes’ is a literary term used to bridge from the death in the literature to the next scene or the next part in the story. It’s a very well crafted transition.

Part Two: Their Story as told without her reputation sneaking in to it 

Gorgeous – i met you and instantly felt an attraction (but nothing happened then) but damn you had me feeling some kind of way

Getaway Car – and then i had a rebound relationship to get out of the previous one 

King of my Heart - i had resigned myself to being alone (again), but our paths crossed again, and you were persistent (2nd time she’s told us that), and things were instant between us. both physically, spiritually and emotionally. This song perhaps tells the longest story of the album bc it starts off with taylor being content being alone and ends with her going…. i’m not going to have any more ‘ends’ to relationships,… you’re the one. All at once, this is enough. i dont need anything else.

Dancing with our hands tied – their relationship wasn’t a perfect situation - taylor dealt with a lot of fear that the media would ruin it when they were found out. And she worried that would tear them apart. But as the song progresses she comes to a realization that no matter what disaster they face, no matter how insurmountable it may seem, they will face it together and she is sure she will still be dancing with him. Dancing = metaphor for being w/ him. 

-- Dress - Underlying meaning beyond taking off her dress: She was reluctant to really bare herself for him, emotionally, it was a big step for her, she was nervous, but she did, and she really wanted to … because he’s been by her side and always seen who she really, truly is. And she can’t explain the attraction between them but she doesnt need to, she just knows he’s her one and only, her life line, the one that keeps her alive, he’s had a permanent effect on her.

– This is why we can’t have nice things – this tells the part of her story where she is saying, i am done dealing with the bullshit and have shifted my priorities. It was nice while it lasted til you stupid idiots ruined it. Fake people, fake friends, people who love drama, the media … i wont be fodder for your entertainment anymore. The new taylor isnt putting up with that bullshit. Again priority shift and focus on what is really impt .. 

– Call it What you Want - and speaking of the media and the people who love drama, she’s saying, i dont give a fuck what you call my relationship with joe, call it whatever you want bc i am not listening. he’s been there for me through the storms and been by my side and he knows me for reals, for who i really am. He gets me. He’s focused on me. And me on him. 

– New Year’s Day - is a final statement, a conclusion, this is the one time she talks about their future together on the album. It’s basically a love letter to joe saying that she will be there through his good times and bad, that their story isnt going to end, that they have a long road ahead of them, that she wants it all, with him, forevermore.
