but i found it just now

Hey, so today I was supposed to write about how I felt when I learned that Wander Over Yonder had been cancelled, and I haven’t yet because I can’t find a gif of Dominator plunging her ship’s volcanic excavator through the heart-shaped planet and cracking it straight down the middle. Trust me, though, I’m feeling it.

Gravity Falls had just ended its run—no sooner than its creator wanted to wrap it up, but still a lot sooner than most of us thought it was going to go. Prior to that October, I would have said that we were due for one more season at least. Before the show had even ended I was searching for something just as funny, just as heartfelt and just as imaginative to fill the gap. I found that cartoon in Wander, a hidden gem by Craig McCracken.

I’d been watching it casually on the recommendation of a friend, but right around the episode “The Nice Guy” (which I watched in January while stricken with insomnia), it hit me that I had found a pretty special show. This feeling only increased when I got to Season 2 and watched the vile Lord Dominator shake up the established foundations of the show’s universe, testing the characters in hilarious and unexpected ways. Bonds were broken, new allegiances were formed, and Wander’s galaxy went from a cartoonish free-for-all to a complex and comical universe with dozens of strange dimensions. I couldn’t wait to see where it would go next, and, heartbreaking to say (there’s that gif again), I thought I had forever ahead of me. The show had just enough plot to keep me guessing and just enough open-ended silliness to assure me of endless possibilities for future episodes. To see the creators of this clever and colorful world turned out of their sandbox when they had so much exploration left to accomplish was saddening, particularly when it was so much admired by animation lovers and when its fanbase was expanding with every fresh episode (“My Fair Hatey” was a game-changer).

A year after the end, my thirst for the rest of the story remains unquenched. The world needs much more of the authenticity and energy this cartoon has to offer, and it’s never too late to give it another shot.


A practice picture bc I freaking thought shading was possible and it’s NOT. But I love these two.


“I didn’t find the perfect moment, because I think… today was about just having today. And I think that we’re one of those couples with a long story — when people ask how we found each other. I’ll see her every now and then, and maybe one year she’ll be with somebody. And the next year I’ll be with somebody. And it’s gonna take a long time. And then, it’s perfect… I’m in no rush.”



It’s been like a year in a half since I posted ;____; 

I finally got into The Sims 4. I got a couple game packs and city living. This is my sim Nina who’s boyfriend left her after she got pregnant. For a while it was she her and Thomas. She works in PR, and right now she’s a Account Executive. Her new boyfriend Leon has just moved in with them. Nina’s just found out she’s pregnant. They’re currently living in a small apartment in the city, but I’ve built them a much bigger house in Oasis Springs for when she has the baby!

Yikes. SBu coming back is so frustrating. I wonder if it'll end up being like Robin and Patrick, Robin in and out and Patrick having to drop everything - romance included - when she comes back around. I don't want Sam to continuously move on then be dragged back in like that.

PREACH! Very frustrating given nuJaSam have finally found their groove and getting story focused on them, and them alone. I don’t want a Robin situation either for JaSam. That’s whY i need more details. Is Sbu coming on for something long term? We have no idea. I just hope the story is good because I can’t see anything but a mess right now. There is so much that needs to explained.

i ship klance but...

will watch voltron even if the ship isn’t canon and i will RESPECT whatever dreamwork does because it is their show, not ours

i don’t support the idea of blackmail because it is downright wrong but i won’t let it ruin a series or a ship i like

reblog if you agree.

1. You look at a map of a city you’ve never been to.
You see patterns and street names and they tell you nothing. The map remains dead, the city unknown.
2. You go to the city you’ve never been to.
It becomes a city you know.
3. You look at a map of a city you’ve been to, but have left behind. As you look at the map, you remember.
You are looking at nostalgia. You walk through street names and remember the taste of cake in the café whose name you forgot, but you remember its yellow walls and comfy chairs. A square is no longer four lines on a map, but an open space with people and statues and laughter and a fountain in the center. The monotonous, two-dimensional blue that indicates an ocean turns into postcard memories, so many shades of blue and green and the smell of salt and fish. The famous building with the famous name that everyone knows is now a personal experience, it is yours and yours alone in a way that will never make it anyone else’s. A billion feet have walked these (now familiar) paths and two of them were yours. You can trace the steps you have taken and you remember feelings and colours and strangers who offered you a smile. There is the hostel you slept in, there is the river you crossed so many times, there is the corner where you listened to the most amazing street musician. You fondly whisper street names that you had trouble pronouncing when you first spoke them, clumsily. You connect dots, and they turn to images in your head.
The map is alive, the city an old friend.
4. The map you look at is always the same; the perception is different. It is you who has changed.
