big mere

I was anti-everything and everyone. I didn’t want people around me. This aversion was not some big crippling anxiety; merely a mature recognition of my own psychological vulnerability and my lack of suitability as a companion. Thoughts jostled for space in my crowded brain as i struggled to give them some order which might serve to motivate my listless life.

Oh boy.

Alphonse is in a pit of despair… He was curt with Edward and quick to just get him moving along, but… This could all be answered and settled with one conversation.

But maybe Alphonse is afraid of a conversation like that. The big “what if.”

The mere possibility that Barry might be right is too much for him…

Okay, this metaphor was a bit on the nose.

The countries as weird sh-t I've said so far this year
  • America: Do you think Midgets can play the drums? Like, do they have tiny drum kits or would we give them stilts to reach the foot pedals?
  • England: This tea is my waifu, touch it and I'll break your dick
  • France: Even pissed, I know you're talking shit again.
  • China: My face may be young but my bones remember when the big bang was a mere sizzle
  • Russia: Yes, I may look cute but I'm secretly a giant shit lord with alcohol problems
  • Canada: Maybe if I scream at them for an hour they'll realise I have feeling?
  • Japan: You're worship kink is too unrealistic, just settle for tentacles, it does the anime industry wonders
  • Germany: Time to salt my followers, gotta salt them real good to keep them honest.
  • Italy: What do you mean I can't marry food? I'm sure somewhere in American has legalised it.
  • Romano: Listen here you fucker, touch my hair again and I will drown you in conditioner.
  • Prussia: I have quite possibly passed my prime and that makes me want to buy a ton of birds and cry myself to death.
  • Spain: Flirting is an art I am yet to grasp and the influence from you guys is only driving me further from achieving that.
  • Austria: There is a very small line between teaching and demeaning, and-WILL YOU PAY ATTENTION YOU LITTLE SHIT, I'M TRYING TO BE YOUR ROLE MODEL HERE
  • Hungary (AKA the one I hate): Everyone hates me and I know this, I'm literally only keeping myself alive out of stubbornness now.
  • Sweden: I am too tall to have any balance and I have noodle arms, why would anyone be afraid of me?
  • Finland: Bitch I will cut you and no one will think it's me because I'm too nice
  • Norway: Magic is real, tell me it isn't again and I'll alaka-poof you into a lazy town meme
  • Iceland: I AM NOT SHORT, YOU'RE ALL JUST TREES
  • Denmark: Drinking everytime you feel depressed is alcoholism, you're depressed all the time.
  • Netherlands: Why the fuck would you trample on the Daisies? They are flowers too, you uncultured swine.
  • Disclaimer: Mun doesn't actually have alcohol problems, nor do I like tentacle porn. I do, however, actually hate aph Hungary but I includes her for the ones who don't.
Another Beginning

2017 has proved to be an interesting year for me. I gained awesome new friends who love RWBY as much as I do and are as dorky as I am. I started doing dumb roleplays as Qrow which has oddly been therapeutic for me. And now… here.

Doesnt matter if this is big or not. I merely want to continue with contributing with and being involved with the RWBY fandom. Its fun if we make it fun and so… yeah.

Oh I’m @theamazingflyinglion btw. Er just Lion. Send confessions or… whatever. Fan stuff, head canons, you name it, I call it a challenge accepted. Let’s have fun here beautiful people 😉

Oh Glory- How a Hellgod Dominated the Buffyverse

Note: Massive spoilers for season five.

The seasonal villains of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (usually referred to as Big Bads) are distinct and almost always very well done (except you, Adam. You were awful). They each have their own personalities, connections to the Scoobies, and motivations, and were almost never merely big obstacles because the series needed one. 

While the debate could go on forever over which Big Bad was the best, this article will explore the astounding success of one in particular; The Hellgod Glorificus.

Season five of BtVS started off in, what seemed to be, the biggest way possible. Buffy fights Dracula. As a show about a character whose job it is slay vampires, it was perhaps inevitable that she would go toe to toe with the most famous creature of the night. This huge first episode, however, is only the tip of the iceberg as it ends revealing Buffy’s younger sister Dawn.

We, as an audience, know that Buffy doesn’t have a younger sister, but all of the characters act as if she’s always been there. It is soon revealed to us, and Buffy, that Dawn is a magical artifact known only as The Key that was transformed into a human girl in order to hide her from a creature called The Abomination. The organization that did this, The Order of Dagon, also implanted everyone around The Key with false memories, so that they would protect her no matter what.

The Abomination, better know as Glorificus or simply Glory, bursts onto the scene along with this revelation, and she certainly makes an impression. She effortlessly defeats Buffy and decimates The Order of Dagon, all while looking and acting like a spoiled twenty-something from Beverly Hills. Buffy and the Scoobies find out from the Watchers Council that Glory is a god and cannot be killed. Throughout the season we learn that Glory had ruled a Hell dimension with two other gods, though she grew so great in power that the other two warred with her, and eventually banished her to Earth. Once on Earth, she was bound inside of a human child, created specifically as a vessel for her. Glory only wants The Key to open a portal to her home dimension, which unfortunately would never close and eventually merge with Earth.

One of the truly great things about Glory as a Big Bad is the fact that her motivation is so simple, and has nothing directly to do with Buffy or Earth. She only wants to return home, it’s merely that her return would cause an apocalypse and personally affect Buffy and the Scoobies by ripping Dawn from them.

She also had a surprising amount of things going on, which contributed to her character, and also affected the Scoobies in unexpected ways. The human that she was contained in, Ben Wilkinson, was a young doctor at Sunnydale Memorial, and soon befriended Buffy, her mother, and Dawn. This, of course, ends badly as Ben and Glory inhabited the same body, and over the course of the season their personalities began to merge (or more likely, Glory’s began to override Ben’s). As a result of being bound inside of a human being, Glory had to constantly drain other human beings of their sanity in order to preserve her own, which eventually brings her into direct conflict with Willow, after the Hellgod does this to Willow’s girlfriend Tara.

Glory is also notable as being the first Big Bad of the Buffyverse to be a woman (or to present as female, as we do not know if Hellgods have a specific sex or concept of gender in their true forms). It is unfortunately rare to see a female character as a main villain on television, let alone a main villain that was as interesting as Glorificus. She is able to physically overpower every other character in the series, spit one-liners, but still enjoy what society considers to be traditionally ‘girly’ things like going shopping for shoes, taking a bubble bath or wearing nice dresses.

In the end, even though she’s defeated, Glory accomplishes more than nearly any other Big Bad in the series. She destroys both organizations that attack her, uses The Key to open the portal back to her Hell, and she causes Buffy’s (2nd and much more dramatic and heart-wrenching) death. For all of these reasons, Glory will always be one of (if not the) most effective Big Bads in the entirety of the Buffyverse.    

okay but imagine for a moment if you will the reasoning behind dan calling arin big cat like imagine them side by side on the grump couch and arin just gently butts his head against dan’s arm until dan reaches over and runs a hand through his hair and arin just melts and dan’s like “god, man, you’re just like mimi and moch, you’re just a big cat, huh?” and then it just *sticks* and that’s the easiest way to calm arin down if he’s upset about a game; dan just says “c'mere big cat, it’s okay” and pets arin’s hair until he’s not so upset anymore
