stupid question ahead hehe at the end of season 4 when the darkness was surrounding regina, Emma said : it's snuffing out the light ( when we know at that point Regina used light magic once in S3B ) if it wanted light why didn't it choose Emma for ex ? do you have any meta on Regina being maybe ? the light one ?
I actually do, I just read it and most of it could still apply. You can find it here. Then there’s also this one, which is mostly obsolete by now, but some observations may still be relevant. I’ll be writing an update, if I have time.
Nothing stupid about your question, there have been plenty of references to Regina and the light…
Which song on the new album [Save Rock and Roll] do you think best represents Fall Out Boy in 2013?
All the songs do. I think to single one out and choose just one song is a disservice to the band and the album.
Yeah man, because we made a whole record- we didn't just make one song, you know? I mean, there's plenty of people that just make one song and then that one song can represent them and that's great, wonderful and fine, but you made an album that's kind of part of what we do and I think part of, or at least, the idea of being a band.
Beth Greene Appreciation Week: day 5; favorite quote ↳The thing is, I’ve been starting to get afraid that it’s easier just to be a f r a i d. But this morning Daddy said something, “If you don’t have hope, what’s the point of living?”
Okay, would you mind explaining the bellamy triplets meme to me!??? I got on tumblr this morning and suddenly bellamy has two brothers I didn't know about (which, I would not complain about; the more bob morley the better)
This should be fun because I, an Old, who did not participate in creating this meme and only sort of understand it, am now going to attempt to explain an internet meme.
With that out of the way, here’s what it is:
It would appear that Clexa fans refer to Bellamy as Boris when they’re being unflattering in their depictions of him. (I’m going to choose to believe this is their version of L.exa and this is them being nice to keep hate out of the tags. No one tell me otherwise.) Idk where Bradbury comes from– apparently it’s his middle name in the books (…NERD) and perhaps Clexa fans use that too. Idk, that’s not ultimately important.
Anyhoo, it would appear that some Bellamy fans seized on this idea and split his character development into three stages: Bradbury (early season one: bad hair and a tendency to act like an overprotective patriarchal gorilla about Octavia), Bellamy (late season one and all of season two: sensitive, guilt stricken, heroic), and Boris (season three: likes murdering, listens to Pike, has very little resemblance to the actual character of Bellamy despite Bob’s valiant efforts). They are now the Blake triplets.
Bradbury is a dick but redeemable, Bellamy is the exact opposite of a dick, and Boris probably texts pictures of his dick to random women.
MCU post-cacw soulmate au where tony’s mark was on his chest & was destroyed when he got the arc reactor
to his horror, the leftover scars are healed magically one day & his mark is restored. steve is there; it’s not really polite to look but he catches a glimpse. does a double take. realizes tony’s mark is identical to his, which is on his wrist in plain view.
tony doesn’t mention it so in the end steve confronts him:
Hey so I saw your post about Sharon and basically I missed all of this and I figured I'd ask you for details if that's okay? I knew there were accusations of her being racist, but I googled it once and all I found was some fb comments from 2012 that Sharon brushed off as forgeries and unsourced claims of blackface, so I just shrugged it off. So I just wanted to ask if you have any links/sources/context bc I'm not sure why (if it's true) this isn't a bigger deal and I didn't know about it?!
stories of sharon being awful to fans (there are more out there and I will try & find some but that gives you the gist of it, particularly the second one)
And I think people do know about it, they just choose to ignore it, which is really shitty and makes me ashamed of the Drag Race fandom/community/whatever you want to call it
Also disclaimer, this was just what I found from a super quick google. I found all this in about five minutes, so bear that in mind if any of you think it’s ‘not that bad’. If anyone wants to challenge this I’m very much willing to dig deeper when I get home from uni
The Starless Road got me through a long week so thank you! I just have one question.. Aside maybe Celebrimbor, do you think any Feanorians were re embodied? Your fic had me thinking of Nerdanel and I'd hate to think she was without at least one son forEVER. Also, what became of the judgement of Maedhros? Cause like.. it's not like the Valar deemed him worthy, Fingon kinda just.. didn't care.. or is Maedhros' worthiness implied in that Fingon found the gate in the first place?
Short answer: nope, I don’t think any Feanorians were re-embodied, especially not Celebrimbor, and actually I think it’s fairly likely that Maedhros wouldn’t choose to stay re-embodied for long.
Long answer: okay, so Starless Road is, for me, a lot about - unhappiness, and trauma, and how those things change a person. And if there is one thing we know about Elves, it is that they do not handle change very well. Which is understandable, when you think about where they started! Valinor in the time of the Trees was literal perfection. Any change that happens to literal perfection is necessarily going to make things worse. There is no way to go but down!
And the Feanorians went a very long way down.
I guess I think of Mandos as - almost a cosmic time-out? That sounds flippant, but it’s not. When Miriel was Too Tired To Carry On, she chose to go to Mandos. When Elves suffer violent death (presumably a pretty traumatic experience for immortal people) their spirits go to Mandos. Death is necessarily an experience of nothing else is going to happen. And if nothing happens, nothing changes. You’re safe. Whereas if you are alive, more bad things can happen: and even if they don’t, you are stuck living with the bad things that did happen, and memories hurt, and trauma doesn’t go away, and the things you choose to do as a consequences of those memories and trauma are meaningful. And that is terrifying! Especially terrifying if you are immortal and it’s never going to stop.
So I don’t think the sons of Feanor are getting re-embodied any time soon. Not as a question of punishment (though it is, also, a punishment) but also because being alive means having to deal with your shit. You have to actually work through your unhappiness and trauma, which is hard. You also have to live with your own bad choices, and face the consequences and acknowledge that you deserve them, but also move past them and start again. That’s really hard. Maglor has been wandering the shores of Middle-earth for literal millennia and he doesn’t appear to have got past ‘wallowing’ as a coping strategy. Starting again, in general, is not a thing that Elves are all that good at. It means admitting that the past is past and won’t be coming back, which is painful. It requires humility, and patience, and self-awareness. These are not, on the whole, Feanorian qualities.
Related to that: I really can’t imagine Celebrimbor, betrayed that badly when he did try to make a fresh start after the traumatic experiences of the first age, being ready to try the whole thing again any time soon. I think he’ll be in Mandos for a while. Nice things about Mandos: when you’re there, nobody ever claims to be your best friend and then tortures you to death and sticks you on a pike.
2) The judgment of Maedhros was intentionally left out of the story of Starless Road. It was Fingon’s story, really. Maedhros has barely begun his journey at the very end, when he figures out he needs to start apologising. The judgment he faces, and the choices he makes, are all still to come. You can decide for yourself what the Valar would choose to do with him, and what he would choose to do himself. I think he still has a lot to learn.
I don’t have any screencaps or quotes to back up this theory but just go with me on this.
What if the person Dipper ends up having to use the mind-wipe gun on…
I think it would make a lot of sense. If we assume Bill is going to intentionally take advantage of the Stanley-Stanford confusion to twist Gideon’s deal around so that Ford is the one Bill goes after,which, let’s be honest, is probably what’s going to happen, then it would make sense for Ford to ask Dipper to erase his memory.
His memory of what? Probably Gravity Falls as a whole. Ford knows too much and Bill knows it too. He’s been trying to get his claws into Ford for a while, as evidenced by Ford’s paranoia about him coming after him before he went into the portal, and we can also infer a lot from Bill’s first interaction with Gideon, when he started muttering to himself about ‘Stan Pines’ and we saw the flashes of the past reflected inside him.
Bill is a dream demon who can casually take a stroll through people’s minds; through their memories, more specifically. I won’t pretend to know what it is Bill expects to find in Ford’s memories that’s so all-fired important, but I’ll bet Ford’ll know what it is he’s after. And I’ll also bet he’d rather forget, essentially, the last forty years of his life (since going through the portal is directly linked with Gravity Falls, he would probably forget everything that happened in the multiverse as well), all his research, everything’s he’s striven for in that time.
He’s already proven he’s willing and able to personally destroy ‘[his] life’s work’ if it means protecting the greater good, and he’s said himself more than once that he would rather have been trapped beyond the portal forever rather than risk Stan starting it up again and possibly destroying the world. So choosing between total global annihilation and getting the last forty years of his life wiped clean? Yeah. I’m pretty sure we can guess which one he’d pick.
I feel like I'm the only person in Thedas who doesn't know what purple!Hawke means. I must have been absent that day. I didn't get the memo. Help?
In DA2 you can choose responses, like in Mass Effect. There’s blue responses (like paragon), red responses (like renegade) and purple which are like sarcastic ones. Purple Hawke is A+, I only ever play as purple Hawke haha.
(Yo, thoughtfullyqualitydonut. I fixed up my muse a bit to fit in with yours for this RP. I made the started more general so you could choose who you wanna use. Bwuh. Sorry that it’s so long. X3)
Now at the legal age of 21, Doll had finally decided that she needed a second job. Although her job as a waitress was great, it just wasn’t enough to do more than pay the bills. With a small sigh, the short haired brunette had searched the newspaper for several days. When Doll was close to giving up, the woman had stumbled across a small article for a place called Fazbear’s Pizzera. Since it seemed as if they had several positions open, Doll had decided to give the place a chance.
The next day, Doll had arrived at the pizzeria. The place seemed to be rather old and worn out, so she was quite surprised that the place had stayed in business. Walking inside, the woman was surprised to see just how many people had come for the few new job positions. From the looks of things, many of the people were fresh out of high school. Rolling her eyes, Doll decided to glance around the place a bit.
All of the animatronics seemed rather dusty and old, but they were still in working condition. However, one part of the pizzeria had the curtains pulled back with an “Out of Order” sign hooked onto it. Tempted to pull back the curtains, Doll ultimately decided against it. If she wanted to get this job, the woman knew that breaking a rule right off the bat definitely wouldn’t give it to her.
Making her way back to the rest of the crowd, Doll waited for the owner to come out from his office. If everyone was here waiting, someone must be planning to choose who just who would get one of the positions. Perhaps someone else would choose, like a respected employee. Whoever it was, Doll just wanted this to hurry up. Even if it had only been a few minutes, half of the people there were already gloating or talking up a storm.
