but as basically everything with him i can't take it seriously

my experiences with overwatch characters
  • genji: despite all the 'i need healing' memes, they're usually pretty nice. they know the entire team is watching and waiting for them to crash and burn
  • mccree: either spawn from hell or just here to have a good time (usually the latter). will probably try to say hi at the enemy spawn
  • pharah: very friendly. will almost never get their ult to go off but won't be salty about it. thanks healthpacks
  • reaper: KINKY. either cursed as shit or will say hello to anything and everything. anyone that mains reaper has dreamt of him crushing their head between his monster thighs
  • solider 76: VANILLA. it's okay though, most people want to fuck him but can't explain it
  • sombra: definitely only here to have a good time since she's basically useless until the devs give her a monster buff. if the player spams the boop voiceline you will hear that noise in your nightmares forever
  • tracer: very high chance they're gay. very high chance one of the enemy team will switch to tracer because they're annoying
  • ana: absolute sweethearts who will risk life and her other eye to keep you alive. secretly enjoys watching the person she's nanoboosted lose their fucking mind trying to make the most of it though
  • lúcio: again, really sweet. unless they're on ilios in which case he's public enemy number one and even if he's on your team you shoudn't trust him
  • mercy: probably picked healer because everyone else picked genji and hanzo. alternatively, a masochist. if the pistol is used a lot they probably mained medic in TF2 and don't fear god or death
  • zenyatta: most likely play competitive too much. another top tier picks for gays but they probably have clinical depression
  • symmetra: [flicking teleporter on and off] welcome to my reality welcome to my reality
  • reinhardt: in the top three most likely to say hi in spawn. please get behind him
  • roadhog: this one is skin dependent. normal roadhogs are like your weird uncle but roadhogs with the islander or junkenstein's monster skin are maniacs and will hook your entire ancestral line across the map
  • winston: i've only ever seen like three. cryptids
  • zarya: tied with tracer and zenyatta as a pick for gays. a good zarya will take your bullets and shove them back up your ass at mach-1 speed
  • d.va: the chaotic good of the universe. probably has play of the game before the match has even started
  • bastion: probably tried to play bastion in competitive once and that was enough. anyone that places him on that elevator thing in hollywood is a scorpio
  • hanzo: they take skirmish way too seriously
  • junkrat: THE CHAOTIC EVIL TO D.VA'S CHAOTIC GOOD. the sound of a riptire is actually an effective tactic to kill the enemy team irl because half of them will have a stroke out of stress
  • torbjörn: lava eating machine. all of them are cursed and i'm personally afraid of him
  • widowmaker: 57 shots, 1 kill. if they're using the odile skin they're probably a straight male
  • mei: fuck you to hell

Hi! I was wondering if you could give me some tips on outlining a fic? I have my character backgrounds down to a t, and I've been working on world building, but I've still been having trouble getting my ideas organized in a story format. Yours are always so well written and flow so nicely, I was hoping you had some advice! Thank you! 💕 (PS your newest fic is amazing and I can't wait for more!!!)

God I have been putting off answering this one too long because I Take Outlines So Seriously. In the last week I’ve probably written 30K words, and only about 7K was fic. The rest was the outline rough draft and then the outline final.

HOW TO WRITE MASSIVE FICS LIKE A FUCKING BOSS: THE ARCTURUS METHODOLOGY

So I have literally a Process I use. My larger fics literally have a pre-production period that I have to work through before they are ready to be written.

after everything that took my interest in the liveshow i thought i can't wait to read your thoughts on it. have any? x

i’m not in the greatest headspace and probably can’t rewatch this ls so i think i will do things a bit differently today and just share some of the best messages i received from people on the liveshow. i always feel bad bc i spend a lot of time writing my own thoughts and then tend not to a good job sharing other people’s thoughts that they take the time to send to me so hopefully their words can speak to what i don’t have the ability to think/write about today. 

While I found dans ls pretty unextraordinary, his whole sexuality talk was really great. There is a large group of his fans who are not straight, and many of those, myself included, may be struggling with figuring ourselves out. Hearing him talk about things like that and how important it is for individuals to make their own decisions on how they want to label themselves is something I really needed to hear.

i really liked this liveshow!! honestly dan talking about labels and how they can be a good thing but can also be unnecessary made me super happy. i feel like he was just really saying the first things that came to mind with that whole “daniel lester” “good suggestion” and the openness when it came to talking about sexuality. and the way he talked about it, like he’d given the matter a lot of thought beforehand, was just very interesting. idk, just my take

well that’s that, dan officially referred to himself as formless blob after using that exact same term to describe people who choose to exist without a label.

dan mentioned the validity of asexuality again today and I’m crying again??? he is so good

the whole sexuality bit was really great and uplifting and validated a lot of what i’d written about the topic this week, in terms of people’s unrelenting pressure for dnp to place an explicit label on their sexual preferences and then share that with us. the compulsion to treat your sexuality as an intrinsic and widely shared part of your identity is great for some people but not as good for others and i love that dan gave voice to the people who might be questioning and uncomfortable with placing one static label on their experiences. this was also the furthest i think he’s ever gone in basically embracing the label of queer (when someone said it was a good umbrella term and he immediately said “it is” and talked about how it encompasses everything that’s not normative. he then defined what those normative groups would be and pointedly didn’t include himself in that group.) as anon above said, he also either consciously or subconsciously referred to himself in the exact same way as he suggested to another person to describe themselves if they didn’t want to label their sexuality (i.e. formless blob). and then of course,,, the sucking balls comment. the way he was weirdly enthused about the “your hair is like my sexuality” comment. good stuff. 

I love the way you criticize Dan and Phil (in a respectful way) and point the things you don’t like about them. I wanted to know what do you think about Dan saying that he likes that he has a diverse audience, with different tastes, ages and humor. To you this doesn’t have anything to do with all the tween girls thing? Also I have seen a lot of comments that want them to play lis to see what choices they make (and well, the game is about choices, so that’s not actually weird)

yep i thought dan did a good job walking back some of the instinctive criticisms he’d made towards his audience earlier in the ls. as i said, he does a pretty good job trying not to explicitly play into “fangirl” stereotypes but that doesn’t change the fact that his instinct is to mock/tease them and take them less seriously. so i don’t know. i feel on the fence about it. 

regarding the ‘play life is strange!!!!’ crowd: i agree that a lot of people have been spamming them to do that, and talking about how it’d be interesting to see the decisions they make. i also understand why the idea of that makes dan extremely uncomfortable. what i didn’t agree with was the way he assumed a high-pitched annoying voice to make fun of the people who were asking him to do it, and then the way he was sort of making fun of how people would be so into watching him and phil make moral decisions. his voice was dripping with sarcasm and mockery and it felt really rude to me. he talks about how people will psychoanalyze him and how it’s all dumb because you can’t tell anything about him from what he does on a youtube video … which obvi hits me personally a little bit hard bc all i do is sit here and think about his personality based on what he does on youtube and what he says in live shows lol so once again im just like ??? lol why do i do this? i mean he’s wrong, blatantly. you can tell a LOT about him from what he does on youtube and what he says in live shows and whatever, but as before i’m sort of put in the position of wondering if all of this rambling is actually invasive and disrespectful ,, who knows

it’s worth adding that dan was not only rude repeatedly to the audience but also to phil at one point? when someone in the chat asked what to do when anime is better than reality he said something like “just settle for someone who is definitely more disappointing than your fav anime character,” like referring to himself which is .. interesting .. i mean it’s def the same type of joking way he talks about phil but he delivered in a much more deadpan and dry way than his usual joking tone so it was just .. weird.

(edit, adding this bc it’s great): i love how proud he seems to be of the dapg channel!!!! he just keeps promoting it and saying it’s really funny and telling people to go watch it. it makes me really warm to know that even if he has been having some issues with dinof, he still is making something he’s happy with (as someone who works w creative things, i understand how frustrating it is to make things you don’t think are good enough, even when other people tell u it’s fine)

yes. he so happily sponned dapg and that made me happy to hear. it’s clear that it’s playing the same role it did back in december for him when he explicitly told us that making gaming vids w phil was what he needed at that moment for his peace of mind and his happiness (as opposed to ‘being existential and sarcastic’ or something along those lines on dinof) 

DANIEL LESTER BYEEEEEEEE

chat: daniel lester

dan: good suggestion!!!!!!

me, instantly craving death .. 

other notes: the allusion to hating the apartment for its noisiness at the end. they gon move. the constant allusions to how stressful and tiring the last two weeks have been. they’re definitely working on some stuff. it will be interesting to see what it is and when it comes to light. the whole talk about watching ‘get out’ and dealing w the annoying person who wouldn’t stop being loud was really funny, esp bc it involved YET ANOTHER reiteration that phil gets anxious in social settings. why are they both really pushing that so hard these days?? it’s def interesting to me. i also liked that when someone suggested he play dungeons and dragons he immediately related it to phil. and to sum all of that up, the twitter reply to the person that edited ‘me and phil’ onto his forehead was gold. ‘tldw’ or ‘too long, didn’t watch’ (a play off of ‘tl;dr’ which means ‘too long didn’t read,’ which is used as a way to summarize really long posts/articles, for those who were confused) so he’s basically saying that if anyone doesn’t want to watch the ls bc it’s too long, that picture is all the summary you need. i mean,,, he’s not wrong. at least he’s self aware.

anonymous asked:

isnt tony stark in civil war (616) really ooc? bc i can't really reconcile his actions (completely fucked up) with who he is in the iron man comics

aaaaaaaahhh yes 616 civil war, the eternal weight i carry on my worn out tony stark-obsessed shoulders

it’s a funny story anon

i was literally reading iron man: beneath the armor by andy mangels the other day, which basically lays out iron man history, and civil war is actually hilarious

you see, at one point in the planning process, tony was literally gonna be on the side you now know as steve’s, and steve was gonna be on the side we all now know as tony’s, but then they switched it, and that alone tells you how Legit the whole business was

the other good part is that tony’s character actually wasn’t there yet, you know, mentally or emotionally or ideologically in any level prepped for the civil war by the time the actual civil war books started coming out. so marvel hired a couple of writers specifically so that they could bridge that gap and bring tony to the civil war point. when civil war was already a thing

omfG WAIT THERE IS MORE 

mark millar did not actually care about developing much of tony’s emotional arc beyond the immediately obvious stuff so bendis was the one who literally had to reconcile EVERYTHING in a single issue called “the confession” which is basically tony monologuing to steve’s dead body and like actually laying out emotional groundwork that explained what he was doing, and that only came out at the very tail end of the event. along with another one-shot, “casualties of war,” that also attempts to explain things, and the final issue of the “front line” series which i’m pretty convinced literally nobody read

note how?? the actual explanations for literally everything tony was doing only actually come to light at the very end of the event, in books that only the seriously tony-invested people cared to read lmao

THERE’S MORE THERE’S MORE

LITERAL HUNDREDS OF TIE IN AND RELATED ISSUES!! ACTUAL HUNDREDS LIKE AN ACTUAL TRUCK LOAD OF WRITERS WRITING CONTRADICTORY TONY (AND STEVE) STUFF WITH THE SINGLE PURPOSE OF PROPELLING THE STORY ARCS IN THEIR OWN BOOKS

listen

tony leans utilitarian. this is true. civil war was basically a literal cheap excuse to pit heroes against heroes lmao a character study of what happens when tony goes FULL utilitarian. it literally does not matter what he’s doing like he could have easily been fighting for the other side if writers had tweaked the circumstances to make the other side be the thing that wins out tony’s moral calculus. how do i know this!! because this year apparently we’ll have aN ACTUAL COMICS CIVIL WAR 2 EVENT WHERE TONY WILL BE SIDING AGAINST THE POLICING OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT ALREADY FUCKED UP BUT MAY FUCK UP IN THE FUTURE LMFAO and better yet, the Canonical Iron Man Event which was used to justify tony’s “do whatever it takes!” civil war 1 behavior was the original armor wars event from iron man vol. 1, which is absolutely hilarious to me because armor wars is the event where iron man literally went rogue to ditch government regulation in the process of retrieving his technology lmfaO 

 BUT LOOK

i do like civil war

i mean i do like the tony stark-centric civil war timeline that i choose to follow within the broader event that absolutely does not always cohere 

i mean it was definitely a different thing and it hurt like Fuck and yes, reading what i’ve read, what tony did actually came to make sense to me and i could reconcile it etc, but then there’s also the fact that i am a Dynamic sort of reader, you know, i am fully capable of realizing these cw circumstances were deliberately crafted by writers who wanted hero vs hero cage fighting and i don’t go around pointing to Specific civil war circumstances and taking them as characterizations cornerstones for tony, or steve, or anyone, i mean, what you should take away from this whole thing is NOT the specific political alignments and shit, you just gotta distill the personality traits reflected there and Go With It. civil war is not a Proof 616 Tony Is Pro- or Anti-Whatever arc, civil war is a Proof Tony Stark Will Not Only Risk His Life, But He Will Also Tarnish Himself And Sell Himself Out And His Principles Hardcore If You As A Writer Make The Conscious Decision To Push Him To The Edge Of The Fucking Abyss And He Thinks He’s Gonna Be Saving More People Than He Will Be Hurting arc

here’s the thing about civil war though, IT SOLD

AND EVER SINCE THEN, WRITERS HAVE BEEN TRYING TO RECREATE THAT

AND THERE’S REALLY ONLY SO MANY TIMES YOU CAN HAVE TONY ~HAVING~ TO CHOOSE THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS AND ~SUFFER~ AS A RESULT OF THE ~INEVITABLY~ MORALLY GRAY PATH HE IS ~OBLIGATED~ TO FOLLOW BECAUSE ~REASONS~, before it gets absolutely ridiculous and people start losing sight of the fact that tony does, you know, have principles and shit, YOU KNOW, HE ORIGINALLY BASED THE IRON MAN PERSONA ON CHIVALRIC HONOR CODES AND ALL OF THAT AND STUFF LIKE ARMOR WARS AND EVEN CIVIL WAR WERE ONLY DIFFERENT AND COMPELLING IN THAT THEY CREATED PATHOS BY REMOVING TONY FROM HIS COMFORT ZONE AND BY HAVING HIM ACT IN WAYS THAT HURT HIMSELF BECAUSE HE FELT LIKE HE NEEDED TO AND NOT BECAUSE GRAY MORALITY IS HIS DEFAULT

anyway

don’t worry. you’re not alone in your concerns

Not dependent. Personally and emotionally bonded.

So in this moment, Olivia pretty much totally dismissed the fake boyfriend set-up having much of anything to do with Fitz, and placed it squarely on her and what she wants and needs. And apparently she wanted and needed Jake to be with her as part of this. Fitz and his feelings about it be damned. As @jamaicanheaux mentioned quite a while ago, “Olivia only pined for [Fitz] when she was within his presence” (and sometimes not even then…). Otherwise she was totally fine, because…well, we know why. But boy can she pine for some Jake. And as I’m about to ramble on about, no it’s not because of a dysfunctional or crippling dependency. She wants him in her life, and in many ways, she needs him, but not in order to basically function or live her life.

anonymous asked:

It may make you angry, but I'm from Poland and I can't stand the fluffy-pinky-gay image of my country in Hetalia fandom. We're one of the most traditionalist country in the EU, a man would be probably beaten if he went outside in a fucking skirt. It sounds still ridiculous for me that two people of the same gender can marry, because it's illegal here.

Wow um, that doesn’t really make me angry i guess just?? a little taken off guard by this weirdly hostile ask out of nowhere lol. But here’s what I have to say:

I’m not sure how long you’ve been familiar with my blog or if u just decided to yell at a hetalian today and chose me at random, but I wouldn’t really classify myself as a fan of the “fluffy-pinky-gay image” of APH Poland either tbh. It actually makes me really upset when people just want to stereotype him as such based on the image that the fandom has dubbed for him, and instead overlook all of his history, struggles, triumphs, culture, and basically everything “Polish” about him. If you knew me you’d know I’m actually one of the most angry and disappointed people in the fandom at this because it constantly infuriates me with the way he gets categorized simply by the way hima drew him.

Idk there is so much to address in this ask I’m struggling to try and write this as eloquently as possible but forgive me i’m doing this at work so i may sound a lil jumbled. The deal is, it’s actually pretty problematic when people want to erase all that Feliks is and represents and just paint him up as “the gay character” or “transv****te cross-dresser” simply because he wore a skirt in a strip that made him fit that stereotype. There is so much potential to his character as far as depth and exploration goes that is often horribly skewed or ignored by other hetalians in favor of just reducing him down to “fabulous valley girl.” And to be quite honest its pretty ooc, but thats more of a different topic for another time.

Don’t get me wrong, I have a few qualms with hima myself and some of the problematic content that he’s decided to include in hetalia, but if you pay attention to Canon Feliks vs Fanon Feliks, you’ll notice alot of the “fluffy-pinky-gay image” has been forced onto him by young (lowkey homophobic) fans. The way Feliks acts in canon (if you take away the over-use of the “valley girl accent” that the translator chose to assign to him to match w/e Japanese dialect hima was trying to give him) you could actually interpret many things differently. By doing so, it’s much easier to see how strong, tough, charismatic, loyal, trusting, and deep he actually is. You see his strengths, his faults, his mistakes, his victories, his growth as a character, nation, and person over the years. You can see moments of happiness, sorrow, silliness, seriousness, moments of weakness, moments of power, moments of worry, moments of confidence, love, hate, regret, revenge, but above all…perseverance. So trust me, it makes me just as confused and angry when people want to ignore what a diverse -if not somewhat ironic/conflicting- character he is and instead change him around to fit what they want to see him as. I wish he was treated with more respect.

However

I understand how traditional the “real’ Poland is, believe me. I’ve been in this fandom for many years and you’re not the first “””real polish person”” I’ve seen get angry over aph poland. You’re not alone.

The thing about hetalia though, is that it is just an anime. All told through the views and thoughts of a japanese man. The story is intended to be a light comedy making fun of nationality stereotypes while simultaneously celebrating the history, culture, and people of each said nation. The intention, as I’ve also taken it (or choose to take it anyway), is to take the setup for these lovable, flawed characters, and kind of???? have fun with them per say…

People are free to interpret things, events, practices, and the characters themselves how they choose (generally speaking anyways). I think there’s nothing wrong with that as long as it’s respectful and not gross in anyway (again, another topic). So therefore, there’s nothing wrong with headcanoning Feliks as being gay. I understand how “the real poland” is set up and what their laws are (though I don’t claim to be an expert or openly discuss them as I am not polish nor do i live there, so i feel that is not my place) but there are so many other things to take into consideration before you come off as homophobic yourself.

One thing to consider, is how the same thing could be said for well over half the nations. To claim that a hetalia character “can’t be gay” because of politicians and a government party’s standpoint is pointless and irrelavent tbh. I’ve always felt it?? weird to try and tie a nation down to a specific time period or law when they’ve been around for literally centuries, and have witnessed and believed in all different type of social norms and morals and laws that evolve and change as time progresses. Its actually pretty closed-minded to expect thousand year old nations to buy into every single detail of present-day customs and viewpoints. Many of the more conservative viewpoints of many nations around the world are relatively new ideas as far as strict practice goes in comparison to the personified character themselves. Something that’s been an enforced idea for the last 50 years or so could just feel like a month or two to an immortal being lmao. But again, I believe most of it is up to interpretation.

I don’t want to speak for the lgbt in poland, or any polish lgbt throughout history as i don’t feel i have the right or enough adequate knowledge to do so, but a hetalia nation is supposed to be sympathetic to and feel the struggles and pain and happiness and glory of all their citizens. Regardless of what the political standpoint of the country is on (I personally believe nations choose not to align themselves with political parties in general as a conflict of interest would ensue) hima has stated time and again that the nations also have the ability to be their own person, and have their own views and standpoints on things that might not match the “majority” of the current political climate (ex. Germany himself was shown to be annoyed with and hated dealing with Adolf Hitler). So it’s not really fair to pretend like a nation has never-looked-at-the-same-gender allllll throughout history just like it’s silly to presume that all people are StraightTM until proven otherwise. 

Canon APH Poland, Feliks Łukasiewicz, the man who likes pink, the man who doesn’t care about gender norms or what kind of fabric he puts on his body because he’s old and has obtained a certain level of nation wisdom enough to know that not only is gender a construct and there’s nothing shameful about “””feminine clothing”””” (even though clothes are just pieces of fabric meant to cover your body and dont have genders lol), but has also seen all kinds or fashion and different types of clothing all throughout history and has worn frilly neck ties, jewelry, heels, makeup, and capes back when those were once considered to be “”masculine”” at that time period as well and remembers how fucking good he used to look in that shit and after all he’s been through knows that he has the right to rock w/e the fuck he wants, the man who historically, legally, culturally, and personally married to another man, the man who still remembers his childhood before he even heard of Christianity, the man who had one of the most tolerant and flourishing commonwealths in history, the man who has such strong ties to the romantic period and who, as a nation, is much more complicated than mortal humans could ever hope to understand……..is absolutely wonderful.

Now I’m sorry that lgbt representation and rights is lacking in Poland at the moment, as it is all over the world. Truly I am, and it makes me upset. I don’t know if you share those same homophobic and hateful views (your tone implies that you do), but the fight and struggle of the lgbt people is far to complicated and powerful to use as a playing chip on a silly Japanese cartoon, and i think basing a headcanon off of prejudice and hate like that is disrespectful to the nation, and to bringing that into a cartoon is disrespectful to the lgbt struggle as well and belittles it all tbh. But as i said before, that topic is best left for another day.

I’m sorry you felt so insulted by a cartoon character to come to my inbox about it, as if i have any control of what this fandom does to him, but I try to just look past all the forced, fanon garbage to see feliks for what he really is. A strong, tough, talented, complicated, fearless, resilient, yet still endlessly sarcastic, funny, mischievous person.

Do you not think that is a good tribute to the Polish people?

Puppet Strings

A small Reaper76 ficlet that I thought about the other day. Happens some time after Honorable. Mostly just Gabe musing on some things because he’s great for introspective things like that.

AO3 Link.


He was jolted awake by the thought of his mortality. Again.

Gabriel Reyes didn’t move right away; instead he just lay on his side, his eyes open, willing himself to take a deep breath to steady himself. Slowly, the cold feeling of the adrenaline shock dissipated from his stomach, leaving him feeling drained and foolish. He adjusted his body, checked his limbs, reminded himself that he was still alive. While that was enough to let the feeling seep away, it also left him feeling that much worse.

Favourite quotes from Season 2 of The Librarians


1. “Kissing you is exactly how I’d want to spend eternity”. - I kind of feel like this doesn’t need an explanation because seriously what..where did this even come from I AM GONNA NEED TO KNOW WHO CAME UP WITH THIS LINE BECAUSE THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LINE IN THE HISTORY OF EVER! (Honestly. Ask @kez06​ because I shout it at her at random intervals during the day because I can’t be.)

2. “Real love is hard, it’s risky and sometimes it breaks your heart but you have to take that chance because that’s what’s real”. (Bonus: “It’s not a story, Ariel”) - I can’t even begin to describe how much I love this. It’s so great! It’s so real! They rejected their supposed happily ever afters for their normal lives and even with all the magic of the Library it’s all still a different kind of magic. That’s what real is, taking the good with the bad. Oh god she’s so right I can’t. Then Flynn basically mirrors what she later says to Moriarty. This show.

3. “Truth is, I don’t care if you know the truth anymore. I don’t need your approval.” So so proud of Jake in that moment. This was so much character development. Not only was he accepting his place as a Librarian and with the others as part of a new family, but accepting that he was himself and that was okay. Just the fact that he didn’t need the approval of his father, after everything because he had accepted it. So so relevant to me right now too so :)

4. “I’m th- a Librarian” - Just. So. Much. Character. Development. Also Flynn realising that he’s not gonna lose anyone any more which after the movies is so important. Also Evlynn moment because he looks over at Eve and realises he needs her which is just what she said in the premier. And she is so proud of him

5. “Of course I do. Eve Baird.” - Of course he does! AND HIS LITTLE SMILE WHEN HE SAYS IT! I love his relationship with Eve. They respect each other so much and he they understand each other slightly differently to everyone else because they’re not Librarians. I swear to god if he does not walk her down the aisle when she marries Flynn I will cry.

6.  “There’s a story soldiers tell… World War II, Market Garden, Allied assault behind enemy lines. What happens is, these allied troops have to cross a river. First wave of soldiers get in their little pontoon boats, get halfway across the river, and the Germans just open up their machine guns and just cut them all down. None of them make it. These two colonels are watching the bodies floating in the river, and one of them says, ‘those are the bravest men I’ve ever seen.’ The second colonel points to the second wave of soldiers getting in their little pontoon boats, getting ready to cross the same river, only they saw what happened to the first guys. They know what’s coming. And that colonel says, ‘no. Those are the bravest men I’ve ever seen’” - This is something else. The fact that she’s so proud of him. The fact that he likes how she looks at him. Again with the character development. (Also I’m a history nerd so anything slightly relevant.)

7. “The Guardian’s job is not to save the Librarians’ bodies. It is to save their souls. And you did that admirably today, Colonel.” - Again these two. This reminded me of his speech in 1.02 when he says that Flynn is drowning.

8. “I got called ‘blondie’, ‘cutie’ and ‘sweet cheeks’ by almost every commanding officer I ever had. And when I was the youngest head of NATO counter-terrorism force, I still got my butt pinched by five prime ministers and a president.” - How do I love Eve? Let me count the ways! LOVE. THIS. WOMAN. MUCH. INSPIRATION.

9. “It’s about rejecting death’s power. It has no power over me.” - This for Cass who’s spent all her adult life being a slave of sorts to her “brain grape” and gave the Serpent Brotherhood access to the Library because she thought it would help her. Now she’s like “screw it” and “I choose”. Just the acceptance that that doesn’t define or control her. Also a kind of bonus is Eve telling her this episode to live her life for herself and to have adventures - she doesn’t have to please anyone any more nor does her illness have to dictate what she does. Also so damn relevant to me right now.

10. “I can’t watch you die any more.” - Because he’s not just the thief. He’s not the baby brother in this. Ezekiel Jones who’s worked alone for who knows how long, not really one to settle in one place or form attachments does and says it out loud. Can you tell that I really feel like everyone’s grown this season?

anonymous asked:

Do you study Shakespeare?. If you have had, do you have any kind of advice?, I love him but I'm new in college and I never had a class about him so I'm a little bit scared but I can't wait to study English Literature.

 OMG, YOU’RE SO LUCKY. YOU HAVE SO MANY GREAT STORIES TO EXPERIENCE AHEAD OF YOU.

I am just an amateur Shakespeare fan (although this will be seen by mutuals who have seriously studied Shakespeare- so they are encouraged to add on to this, please). I took an AMAZING Intro to Shakespeare course my first year in college that made a huge impact on my life (while I studied Computer Info Systems… whoops) and started me down a path that just got worse with time.

One of the great things about that Intro to Shakespeare class was how it was more about just helping us understand the context of Shakespeare in general and how he was pop culture not high culture. Almost the whole first day of class was spent watching a documentary on The Beatles with the simple instruction of “Every time someone says ‘The Beatles’ you should mentally replace that with ‘Shakespeare’.” 

If that class is still being taught today, I imagine the instructor might have replaced the Beatles documentary with the 60 Minutes segment on Lin Manuel Miranda and Hamilton this semester.

A few tips on taking your first dip into Shakespeare:

1. As David Tennant has been saying all over the place in the past few weeks: watching Shakespeare be performed is vital to understanding/enjoying Shakespeare on first exposure. Find WHOLE professional performances when you can, in formats where you can re-watch them and with subtitles/captions. And, ideally for your first exposure, try to find the newest performances you can- or at least ones made during your lifetime- as every production is skewed towards its modern audience.

2. I recommend starting with the comedies, if you can. Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream are all good starting points. They have many things in common with modern romcoms and screwball comedies and are easier to follow if you’re just starting out because of that.

 3. Once you have the baseline visual context for a play, then reading (which is how your instructors will assign the plays) it becomes much easier. You can find just about everything via Google for free. But if you want hardcopies: for help with translation and ability to mark stuff up, get the Folger Shakespeare Library book editions. If you just want the plays: Dover Thrift Editions exist for this very purpose. I recommend getting the Sonnets this way. It’s also a good prop for when your mom wants to know how life at school is going and you want to send her a selfie to prove you’re super scholarly.

4. Watch as many different versions of everything as you can stomach and access. THIS IS THE FUNNEST. Once you have a basic understanding of the play, you get to see all the alternate universe versions of the one you know! Find the silent film version. Find the ballet version. Find the modern dress version. Find the modern dress version from the 70s. Find the audioplay version (check the BBC Radio Four site to see if any are currently available- they don’t region-lock audioplays!). Find the school down the street that’s doing a 1920s New Orleans-themed Romeo & Juliet directed by a former cast member of Power Rangers (real thing that happened). Watch She’s The Man after you’re familiar with Twelfth Night, The Lion King after you’ve seen a version (or three) of Hamlet, 10 Things I Hate About You after Taming the Shrew. And, of course, see as many live productions as you can. 

5. Experience with a buddy. Half the fun of Shakespeare is experiencing it with someone else and comparing and contrasting what you take in. 

6. Watch things ABOUT Shakespeare. Watch Shakespeare Live/The Shakespeare Show, the live show shot last weekend by BBC2 from the Royal Shakespeare Company that is about to be released on dvd as well as broadcasted to US cinemas in May. Watch all the episodes of Shakespeare Uncovered from PBS/BBC. Watch Shakespeare in Love. Watch The Shakespeare Code episode of Doctor Who. Listen to the cast recording of Something Rotten. Watch the dvd special features to any dvd of a production you can get your hands on.

Hello, do you think you could make a Jason/Piper fanfic where Jason is punk and Piper is a skater, I feel like that would be cool

Run Me Over With Your Skateboard

a/n: sure, anon. it’s kind of different than what I planned originally, but here it is anyway.

He could hear Annabeth laughing softly when Piper and Percy walked past them.

“Shut up,” he growled, feeling his face grow warm.

She stayed quiet until they passed, but once they were gone, she turned to him and grinned, laughing loudly. Her gray eyes were sparkling mischievously too, like she was dying to say something about it.

Jason wasn’t really sure how he got stuck with Annabeth Chase as his best friend. Well—he was actually pretty sure. They had teamed up when they were in the third grade, taking down all of their other peers at every sport during recess. They’d been best friends ever since, even when Jason had joined a band with a few other guys and Annabeth had started with her AP classes and tried out for track.

It was a bit strange, seeing the punk guy with the future valedictorian and star track runner. A lot of people teased them that they were going to get married and have a bunch of blonde babies but—no. Jason could easily marry Annabeth and be happy for the rest of his life, but it would just be like something was missing.

“But what I can’t decide,” Annabeth interrupted his thoughts. She was still grinning at him, and she closed the book that she had been reading. “Is if you have a crush on Piper or Percy.”

Yo! I'm really interested in trying to draw your characters, but I can't exactly find suitable references of them. If you could link me to some that I may have missed, or find the time to draw it out, that would be awesome! (I love all your work, and I can't wait to see the game when it's finished.)

Thank you! We’re currently focusing on working out the story, character personalities and building a quick demo of the game itself. I won’t be releasing full character sheets until the designs are settled upon (everything up to this point is still just a first draft of characters, and three of the characters haven’t even been drawn yet because they aren’t relevant to making the demo) For now any art in this tag is all we have online so far.

cheerful-otaku said: Is there a possibility that there would be a contest that would require the fans of No Mercy to design a character that could potentially be played?

We’ve seriously considered this actually, it’s a good possibility! That probably wouldn’t happen until later this year though.

More questions under a cut!

mylittlechimera  asked:

Do you have any thoughts on how Railroad people would feel about synth Shaun? Because I can't get rid of the feeling that they would adore this kid (seriously who wouldn't, he is precious) and it warms my heart.

I kept Shaun at HQ for quite a bit after the game, before I sent him off to Sanctuary. I sort of wish I’d kept him there, but I felt a little bad he was living in an underground tomb.

I think they all like the kid to varying degrees. Some people just aren’t great with kids, but he seems pretty quiet (at least mine is, I dunno if Shaun inherits personality traits from choices the Survivor makes in game?) and loves tinkering. He’s at a great age where everything is interesting and he can hold conversations and express himself for the most part.

Drummer Boy takes to him right away. He flawlessly picks up the role of “big brother” to Shaun. Maybe Shaun reminds him of his younger sister that he lost in an Institute attack on their homestead? Inquisitive and curious. Drummer Boy’s got him a bed and a bowl of noodles within an hour of showing up at HQ. “What’s your name, kid?” Drummer Boy asks as he hands Shaun a bowl of hot noodles. The young boy watches and learns how to eat something that isn’t grey goop with a spoon. “Sh-shaun,” he stutters. “Good to meet you, Shaun. You can call me Drummer Boy. You need anything, you just let me know, ok?” Shaun nods vigorously, slurping down his noodles, and making his first friend.

Carrington is a helicopter dad. Shaun’s got a million questions and Carrington does his best to answer all of them. Shaun’s his shadow for a part of the day, handing Carrington instruments and paperwork. Shaun helps pack the care packages for lost synths that Carrington sends off with the Survivor. Shaun writes notes and tucks them into each one. Carrington also does what he can for Shaun’s education. Seems that the Institute taught him to read and write, and Carrington will do his best to keep it up.

Desdemona is a bit standoffish, kids make her a little nervous and she’s got so much work to do. She’s sweet enough, but she’s definitely not pinching his cheeks and ruffling his hair. She reads to him, though, when the majority of the Railroad is asleep. Sometimes she’ll tell him stories about Glory. Sometimes she’ll tell him stories she remembers her grandfather telling her. Sometimes she’ll sneak in a story about Sam and what they imagined their life being like on their farm. 

Tinker Tom shows the kid all of his inventions and tools and notes. Shaun is amazed. They work together on projects, just little things until Tinker realizes how bright the kid is. Shaun’s constructing his own lasers in no time. Tinker sends agents out for materials along with their mission objectives, bringing back hot plates and alarm clocks. He listens to any idea for an invention the kid comes up with (even the fork and spoon combo he ended up calling a “spork”). He helps Shaun work through the details, draw out schematics, take apart old tech for  Sometimes Shaun reminds him of his own twin boys. Sometimes that’s great and it makes Tinker smile, sometimes it’s not and he sends Shaun away with something to keep him busy.

P.A.M. gives out daily math and statistics questions. Shaun isn’t the biggest fan.

Deacon loves having a rapt audience for his tall tales. He dials it back on the life lessons, though. Not until Shaun’s older and can understand. For now, Shaun gets to be a kid as much as someone can be a kid in the Commonwealth. Of course they dress up and play Railroad and Raiders, though. Shaun’s always the Railroad Agent (code name: Ass Butt-kicker) trying to get his synth to safety while dastardly Deacon the Raider attempts to stop him. Making a small Railroad Heavy jacket for Shaun was one of the funnest things Deacon’s ever done, and he’s pretty proud of his handiwork.

Sole Survivor really can’t imagine trying to raise Shaun on their own, and they’re so thankful they have this ragtag bunch of misfits to help out. Things are just as white knuckled as before the Institute, but this is family, and they’ll make it work. They’re also thankful they have this supportive environment to surround Shaun if they decide to have the talk and explain to Shaun that he not as human as he thinks.

probably-platonic  asked:

YOU. NEED TO TEAch me your ways I am not even kidding how do you do digital art like that. How do you digital art at all, I still can't figure it out, like what tech do I use, what programs or pages or whatever, I'll take anything.i just your art is great

Hi! Thank you so much! <3

I guess I’ll do a kind of tutorial/show step by step how I do my digital drawings?
So, I use drawing program called Paint Tool SAI (it’s free to download) and Wacom Intuos pen small tablet.

Step 1 - for me it’s to find right music for drawing :D no, but seriously. Like while I was drawing Joe I was listening to his playlist on spotify (called Coachella 15) and listening music a person likes really helps me to get really into this person I draw. Like when I’m drawing Dan I like to listen music that he likes (also I have the really simillar music taste so maybe that’s one of the reasons I love to draw him lol) idk if this step would be helpful for you or somebody else but I decided to do it anyway and now let’s move on :D

Step 2 - I decided to draw Troye, so I found a photo of him (768x1024px) and open it in SAI and open another window to start a drawing (bigger size - 2000x2666px) with 400px/inch resolution and start with simple lines to get basic shape using Ink Pen: 

then I just draw a lot more lines to find everything on his face (eyes, nose, mouth etc):

looks creepy :D so this step always tooks me bloody ages but it’s worth this time because you need to place everything right. Before Step 3 (wich is painting) I do all the lines more properly and then creating a new layer for draw all lines again without a mess and it looks like this:

Step 3  - Painting. Create a new layer under the layer with lines and just start painting. Again, I use Ink Pen for this step. Background always on new layer underneath all layers. And after I done, this mess looks like this:

Step 4 - Blending. For this step I use Brush with density about 30-40% and blending on 100%: 

sorry, it’s on russian but you can see numbers and stuff

so I blend everything together and it looks like this:

creepy as hell :D

Step 4 - Very very long-time step. I try to paint every detail I can (again with Ink Pen and blend some things with Brush in the process) random screens with this process:

Ink Pen:

After blending Brush:

More details:

In this way I do everything else and then final step.

Step 5 - Background. Always I do different things for background. In this time it’s simple blending dark tone with light tone + paper texture. And here is the result (idek what i did with the hair, sorry, it was a nightmare) 

Hope this will be helpful somehow! 
also I’m sorry for all grammar/spelling mistakes

anonymous asked:

It's obviously not platonic for me but it's canon because they surely have feelings for each other while komahina is one sided because komaeda is fucking crazy mate even hinata hates him in the end and in the end he was helped by chiaki and not Ko

???

Why are you sending me of all people this??? Can’t you go have fun with all the other Komahina haters instead of subjecting me to this?

I can’t tell if this is trolling or not but I can legitimately refute all your claims, man, so why not.

‘They obviously have feelings for each other’

If I remember, when the first meet is the only time it seems super romantic - mainly because of the blushing. But again, after that, it seems they’ve known each other for quite some time and are much more comfortable with each other, except for Hinata’s general insecurity. You’d think if Chiaki really loved Hinata, she would confess it as she was dying to try and snap him out of being Izuru?

‘Komahina is one-sided.’

Hinata clearly has an attraction to Komaeda. They literally copy the line from the first game where Naegi thinks how relaxing and at ease Maizono’s smile is, and have Hinata think that about Komaeda. He gets betrayed during the first trial, yes, but even after, even without FTEs, he still cares about Komaeda to a degree. (he’s the first to offer to help him when Komaeda faints in chapter 3, he stays to talk with him before the fourth trial despite the fact that Komaeda is being an in general dick to him, he still talks with him for a damn while, and he’s really worried about Komaeda during chapter 3 in general.)

With FTEs, it’s even more explcit; he keeps trying to understand Komaeda, and in the final FTE drops the pretense of being scared of him to admit he just wants to hear the rest of his story. He’s about to forgive him when Komaeda realizes this, and so backs off and throws a wrench into the whole thing by claiming he was lying, for probably several reasons. (not wanting to be pitied, not wanting Hinata to get caught up in his luck, and yes maybe part of him does want Hinata to kill him so he can get off the island.) Even after that, when Komaeda cuts off confessing his love, Hinata literally thinks right after that he feels a bond between the two of them. He also thinks he wants to see Komaeda see the hope he desires, see how he’d react to that. Which is oddly specific wording, because you’d think he’d just be curious about seeing what Komaeda calls hope at all if he didn’t care about him, rather then specifically see him react to it and want to see him get it.

Komaeda scares him because he’s so hard to understand, but there’s definitely an attraction there.

‘Komaeda is crazy’

Honestly, I do think part of Komaeda slips away after he finds out the truth, and I think part of his sanity might break from that stress. But for most of the game, his actions are very irrational to some, but not insane. He’s not, say, the Joker, making chaos for chaos’ sake or doing things irrationally. Once you realize his goal boils down to the fact that all 15 of these beautiful students, the hopes of the future world, being trapped on this island not able to use their talents or spread their hope, is far, far, far more terrifying to him then just one surviving. That’s just how he thinks, and he acts accordingly. He tries to get himself killed by one to give them a chance to escape, though he fails and Twogami dies instead, and that’s really the only ‘insane’ action he takes for a while. It’s incredibly confusing and seems crazy, yes, but once you realize his motivations, you can see his reasoning better. It’s not something I agree with, of course, but it’s comphrensible.

I think if Komaeda were really, truly crazy even by chapter five, he would have seriously just tried to blow everyone up somehow, deeming the traitor a necessary sacrifice for hope. The fact that he still tries to save the traitor proves to me that he hasn’t fully lost his mind. He’s close, but he has some grip on his ideals still.

I basically refuted Hinata hating Ko in the other section, but I’ll go into more how he thinks of him after he’s dead. Which, surprisingly, isn’t much at all. You’d think if he really hated Komaeda, he’d be angry in his thoughts, cursing him for causing Nanami’s death long after the trial has ended, but there’s really nothing like that. I think his feelings are a mix of feeling sorry for him, guilt, and fear, so he tries not to think about him much.

‘In the end he was helped by chiaki and not Ko’

  That was because Nanami was part of the game. When Junko tried to reset everything, she couldn’t reset her, because she was already made into the game, so when she gets programmed to reset, her programming gets confused and allows her memories to break through. (it’s a miracle, doesn’t make the most sense, but yeah.)

And part of Hinata’s struggle was that Nanami’s purposeful sacrifice for them wouldn’t be remembered. As he was the one who basically had to prove she was the traitor, he feels guilty for her death, and wants it to mean something. If they forget all about her, it doesn’t mean anything. To him, at least, until Nanami tells him that her sacrifice did still matter, because she was able to make the choice to save her friends when that wasn’t supposed to be programmed into her.

Journey to FUN!

It’s here! It’s been over 6 years since any Bionicle animation longer than 3 minutes has come out, and there’s clearly been a significant budget increase to this G2 reboot’s episode-style format. We’ve got 3D animated toa and villagers alike, along with a lively crew of creatures and a villain who manages to simultaneously be Starscream and Megatron (sorry, I had to, but the link is a StamperTV comedy sketch that is as relevant as it is not safe for work).

If you’ve played or seen screenshots from the Mask of Control mobile game, you know basically where the overarching story is headed. The two and a half episodes we have are the full tread of the winter wave, and end on a “cliffhanger” for summer that’s of course entirely blown out of the water by leaks. As usual though, it’s the moments in between that really shine and liven things up. Journey to One is definitely many things at once, but above all it succeeds at being fun!

Just don’t let the ramblings of this over-devoted fanboy be your first experiences with this show; it’s got tons of charm that can only be expressed by a visual medium! Spoilers and such abound below, so Netflix binge excessively and then come back, won’t you?
