but why don't we talk about this

The DM's Mary-Sue, Percival

“It’s Percival. His race is Percival, and all his stats are yes.”

+++++

“Why is Percival lying to the kobolds?”

“If Percival says moose can breathe fire, moose can breathe fire.”

+++++

“Percival Nightly saved our marriage!”

“How?”

“…we don’t talk about that.”

(A man Percival had seduced came home to tell his wife he was gay now, only to find Percival having sex with his wife. Threesome ensued. Marriage saved.)

+++++

“If Ayame from Fruits Basket had a baby with Sephiroth, that baby would almost be as fabulous as Percival.”

+++++

“When my character was six years old Percival asked her to be quiet, and that’s why she hasn’t spoken in fifteen years.”

anonymous asked:

even if interviews only talked about his music, if we’re supposed to believe MY is about El, then Louis will have to talk about her anyway (I noticed during BTY promo he usually brought her up unprompted, interviewers only cared about F). Though it’d be great to have more Qs about the music process, ones that don’t make him talk about Oasis/AM (it’s gotten redundant for me, sorry Lou!) +not questions about what superpower he’d have, who he last texted or what career he’d had if he wasn’t in 1D.

Indeed, anon. They have set it up so that it’s practically unavoidable, haven’t they? With BTY he had to claim the song wasn’t about the beard, and I’m afraid with MY he will have to sell it being about her. Doesn’t seem like a coincidence that the song they couldn’t make about the stunts got a single interview and was immediately smothered.

We can hope that he’ll at least also get to talk about the difference in sound, and other aspects of the music. It’s never all bad. But the bad is bad, and it’s more than bad enough, in my opinion.

I have to disagree about him bringing her up ‘unprompted’, though. Or I wouldn’t call it that: the need to check off certain talking points was all too clear. And more than once a single reference to the girlfriend earned a headline; see Ryan Seacrest or the horrid Alan Cohen interview where he was literally reduced to the tattoo on his hand ‘about his girlfriend’… But there was an awful lot about his fatherhood, yes.

That’s something especially cruel—as well as significant, in my opinion—about Louis’ stunts: they have been made to invade both his personal life and his professional one. His music and him as an artist have been enmeshed in the stunt narratives, and consistently overshadowed by them. There is nothing the stunts do not touch.  Nothing is ever just about him, as a person or an artist.
I mean, just think of how his solo launch started: the beard headlining the article about the BTY music video in The Sun, and later syndicated press about the picture of the kid with the guitar at a songwriter’s house—that he later had to allude to in one or two interviews.

As for his musical influences. All artists get asked the same questions sometimes, and repeat their answers. But I do think that insisting on the idea of him liking Northern British Bands, even if in some measure sincere, is not entirely coincidental. Taking into account that whole Twitter mess about attitude and ‘trouble causes’ in the industry, and praising the Gallaghers on a personal level…

As for the dumb, repetitive questions… Again, all artists deal with that to some degree, but I do feel like they want to push a certain image of him that does not allow for questions which might reveal how intelligent, thoughtful, socially aware, etc. he is. And there’s been so much (in my personal opinion) stupid material, in which he was among a group of celebrities/artists that are not at his level of fame, as well? I mean, look at the people Niall and Liam are mixing and interacting with, and then look at who Louis is linked to—problematic X Factor contestants, JA, and that’s Pretty M*ch it.

So, I’m not hopeful about the quality and purity of upcoming promo. I would love to be wrong. But… I mean. Where are we now? A non-televised, non-publicised performance at a local radio event, where he debuted his next single for an article on their website that said he performed Just Hold On, didn’t mention his new single, and devoted a whole paragraph to the kid. He hasn’t been seen anywhere in weeks and weeks except for stalker service or with the beard for tabloid articles that don’t sell him or his music. No press except about his fatherhood and a bit of nouis, not even for his EMA win. Hardly any relevant SM activity. Just the Royal Variety performance announced to date.

It doesn’t look good.

And, you know, probably just me projecting and reading too much into it, but his answer to the superhero question has always made me kind of sad. It makes me think of all the time he’s lost and everything he is missing out on in his life and career because of all the shit he’s been saddled with. :(

“Harry found himself newly and happily impervious to gossip over the next few weeks. After all, it made a very nice change to be talked about because of something that was making him happier than he could remember being for a very long time”

Sure, the bedroom scene is #iconique, but can we talk about how Keith gives Lance the softest look ever in the middle of a f i g h t??

Comic Poison Ivy in the last 15 years: Hey you know, the whole man-hating evil seductress trope is kinda old and disrespectful and it’s time to recognize the potential of this complex and interesting character. We’ll focus on making her more sympathetic and less crazy. We’ll show she has a deep, real, and profound connection to the earth. We’ll show that she is struggling to maintain her humanity in light of a darkening situation and that she still feels compassion for human life, as it is also part of the earth. She will only apathetically kill people who are 100% irredeemable. She will have many moments in which she spares human life. She will have many complicated relationships with other women in the Universe, including Batgirl, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Black Canary, the Birds of Prey, and many others. These relationships will range from uneasy trust or anger to understanding and love. She will not show romantic interest in men and will not be a sexually driven character. She will be a member of many hero teams, including the Birds of Prey and the Justice League, even if there are missteps in the writing of the character. Most of the Bat-family will recognize Ivy as a grey-area case that must be handled on an individual basis and will acknowledge that her situation is centered around tragedy and loss of self. They will recognize that Ivy could very well be the thing the saves the entire planet. They will recognize that Arkham is making her worse, and will do what they can to reason with her. 

Wonder Woman will acknowledge that the Green and Mother Gaia chose Ivy as her protector and that she was wise to do so. (Sensation Comics #31)

Batgirl will show numerous moments of concern and understanding and will even acknowledge that if they were in another world, their relationship would be very different. She will value Ivy’s powers as a source of good and believes Ivy’s struggle stems from the flawed nature of humanity. (Batgirl Annual #2, various)

Batman will return to Ivy to ask her for help, knowing that when the world is at stake, she is a trustworthy ally to the Earth. (Swamp Thing) (Sensation Comics) (Detective Comics, various) (Justice League United) (Animal Man)

There will be many moments where the relationship between the part of Ivy that is still human and the part that is the Green struggle to cooperate or have complexities in their natures. (Cycle of Life and Death) (No Man’s Land) (Birds of Prey)

Harley Quinn will express implicit love for Ivy and in certain series, they will be in a canon loving relationship. This will not be subtext as it has been in the past. We will show an actual relationship between two women that isn’t just for eyecandy. (Harley Quinn series) (Bombshells)

Yes, there will be missteps in the canon as many different hands are working between many different series, but overall the character will have undergone a complete transformation that far exceeds the previous incarnations.

Every Media Outside of Comics, obsessed with an Ivy that hasn’t existed prominently in 15 years: u know, the slutty evil plant lady?

what really fucked my up about 13 reasons why was alex.

in the ambulance scene, when they say it was a 17 years old boy with a gunshot in the head, i thought it was clay, i thought it was justin, i thought it was bryce… but alex never occurred to me

and yet, he gave all the signs. the way that he talked about jessica being the only good thing in his life, the pool, the fact that he didn’t care about being beaten, that relationship with his father, he said he had no plans for the future, he wouldn’t mind to give all the truth away, the guilt…

it was all there. and yet, i didn’t see it. 

the show is about suicide. the show is about how we should be able to identify its signs. i was angry because none could see what hannah was going through and how they didn’t see it coming. and yet, i didn’t see it coming neither.

this fucks me up really hard.

How high are Sorey’s high heels?

As you probably all know, Sorey wears high heels in armatus form.

#godbless

But how high are they, exactly? Let’s use the screenshot below as a reference.

Okay, who does also wear high heels in the series? Lailah.

Let’s compare them to each other, shall we?

So: Sorey wears high heels of similar height as Lailah.

But, how high Lailah’s heels are?

I’ve compared Lailah cosplay boots and high heels that are quite similar.

Guys. They are about 3 inches (7.5 cm).

Sorey fights hellions in 7.5cm high heels.

Band instruments as things I've heard them say
  • Piccolo: .... (I don't think I've ever heard them speak. Thinks they're better than everyone and doesn't talk to other band kids)
  • Flute: guess what 'band director' said about 'piccolo'
  • Oboe: *quietly playing a solo, very concentrated*
  • Bassoon: *squeak*
  • Clarinet: we're gonna play those two notes ff instead of p so it sounds like 'DOOT DOOT' wanna help
  • Bass clarinet: I don't think I play here
  • Alto saxophone: I can fit my whole mouthpiece down my throat I'll show you
  • Tenor saxophone: we either play 4 half notes the entire song...or constant 32nd notes....I don't understand
  • Bari saxophone: so do I do sectionals with the trombones, or...?
  • Trombones: *screams into instrument*
  • Tuba: why am I even here
  • French horn: (secluded, doesn't speak much. Very put together. Know what they're doing)
  • Trumpet: *clearly plays wrong note* that wasn't me
  • Percussion: *screaming* RATCHET SUPREMACY

anonymous asked:

You have a mostly adult fan base. Why do you keep everything so G rated? You don't cuss, talk about sex, your love life or anything. Do you think we can't handle it?

Yup! That’s what I think!

Lol no!! I do talk about my love life to an extent, only to the point I, myself, am feeling up to talking to you all about it. And as much as you may think I have a mostly adult audience, I do have lots of kids who follow me, and it is a great opportunity to keep my videos accessible to them, while also discussing things that may not get to be talked about a lot in school (Black History, women’s rights, gender identity, body positivity, etc.). Future topics will cover other things like sexuality, gender identities, possibly even safe practices, but my channel is still relatively new. And it’s not just kids, a lot of people of all ages would prefer not to watch something with expletives or sexual content. It’s not that they can’t handle it, but that they would prefer not to have it, or that they would like to watch something while there are kids around. I’m not even a big curser myself, although I’m never offended if anyone were to curse around me. I’m just a big believer in keeping my videos accessible to all!

  • Pureblood Slytherin: Uh... well.. I don't actually know. My parents have always had Greg upstairs eating the moths
  • Muggle Born Ravenclaw: Greg the Ghoul? He has a name but he stays in the attic?!
  • Pureblood Slytherin: To be frank, we can't get rid of him. He seems to like it there
