but yeah this is my opinion

991. After the war, Harry and Ron ask the Hogwarts school board to forbid students from bringing in their own brooms for Quidditch matches (to keep the richer families from buying an advantage with more powerful brooms) unless they have valid excuses like medical reasons. In exchange for giving all the Hogwarts Quidditch teams high quality brooms to use for matches and practice, Harry and Ron offer to help advertise the broom companies by being seasonal spokesmen for their ads.

No, no, no I don’t want Chole as the Bee. No.

Mostly because the creators did a PRETTY GOOD JOB at making her a generally unlikable character. In my opinion, she didn’t have a lot of redeemable qualities, if at all, and I didn’t really see any major indications that lead me to believe she WAS redeemable enough to be worthy of a Miraculous.

I don’t know how they’re going to undo all the damage and akumatizations she’s caused, and her lack of empathy for them all. She has never shown any kind of regret for the problems she created.

Like seriously? What she did to Kim was absolutely humiliating. Nope. No fault. Sabrina in Antibug? Yeah, I understand that she accepted Sabrina back, but it was ACCEPTING her back, not asking for forgiveness. There was no indication that she even changed towards Sabrina after the reconciliation, or in any episodes following that (regardless of having no ‘real order,’ there IS a sense of direction in this season).

This better be misleading (as in this character looks painfully similar to Chole), or she must go through a very intense, a VERY believable redemption arc in season 2 for me to even BEGIN being okay with it.

But I won’t be for a while. It boils my blood to think about Chloe somehow earning such a huge, humanitarian responsibility with little redemption cues to fall back on. Season 1 gave me no reason to believe she deserves it.

Again, I hope it’s misleading, but the design elements have me on my toes. The similarities are ridiculously obvious.

At An Art Museum

Guide:  Here is one of my favorite oil paintings from the Renaissance, Assumption of the Virgin in oil.  It was executed by esteemed artist Titian in Venice.  The Virgin Mary is ascended to heaven.  God and the angel await, with the angel holding a crown just for her.  Honestly, a magnificent piece.

Me:  Yeah, it’s alright.  But what’s the one next to it?

Guide:  Really?  That.  Deplorable.  Doesn’t even belong here.  Ughhh…well it’s a modern piece…conceived in the year of 2014.  It depicts the fetishization of corporate greed…and in my opinion..in the worst light possible.

Me:  What’s it called?

E. what if H realized he was in love with you mid argument with another person. Tabloids were sharing rumors of him and another lady, so you take a step back from him. He goes to confront Jeff & Co about wtf they're doing. Mid not quite yelling, but loudly voicing his opinion he just says "YOU LOT ALMOST COST ME THE WOMAN I L... someone I care greatly about. I almost lost someone I care about over this." And his brow furrows as he realize what he almost jus said. Gahhhhh.

Oh no, oh NO don’t do this to me! This hits every overly dramatic string in my heart! Those panicked, rushed moments with the big words that you don’t even realize are true until they’re halfway out of your mouth. 

But you know it’s worse for him then, right? Cause yeah, he said it, but he meant it, and he’s processing and realizing it’s true, and then the fact that he’d almost lost you? Worse. Way worse. Cause it’s not just this girl he’s been seeing and having a laugh with and having great sex with and spending his nights with and giving extra long hugs to before he has to fly somewhere or having nights in with while sharing takeaway, is it? It’s not just the girl who sleeps in his bed and who leaves things at his place and it isn’t a big deal cause he’s lost a few things in the void of hers, too, or the one who he holds hands with on the walk across the parking lot while paparazzi snap their every footfall. It’s the woman he *loves* – loves like he loves his mum, or his sister, but different and more, cause he can’t remember not knowing them and not loving them. He can remember not knowing you and not loving you and he can remember the fall and the swoop and the gentle placement and silent, unknowing decision of putting you in his heart. And you two had a fight and you might walk away from him over it? Well, no. No, that’s not okay.

AHHH. you're watching haikyuu!! O V O how do you feel about it so far?

I will stop the screaming and excitement to reply properly… You know I am always honest with you guys. ALL the time, so… here it goes:

I love when characters are passionate and that’s what we get here <3. Yeah!! let’s go! fight for your dreams!!

By far I laughed my ass off with each joke and omg the characters are SO EXPRESSIVE!! it’s a combination of great designs and excelent animation I am impressed!!…. (Tanaka is so damn funny I want that guy to be my best friend I swear!! XD, give him to meee)

This sports anime always have many characters, all of them are different and it’s kinda hard to analyze them apart from the main ones so. My opinion on Hinata and Kageyama is already formed and (don’t kill meee I’m honest) well, Kageyama is the type of character that I can get to love easily because under that tough exterior there is a soft and sweet personality I know that… while Hinata… mmm… is … a … bit… too … loud(?) hahaha, sweet and pure but … drains my energy like he’s stealing it from me XDD. (nevermind, that’s what a character like Kageyama needs in his life)

So for now I’ll keep watching and… see if they get to hug each other please <33

anonymous asked:

i love all of your posts/tags on black sails!!! i was wondering since i don't think you post much of him, what are you thoughts on vane?

awh thank you so very much, anon! :’D that makes me so happy <33

I just went, to myself, “……do I have any vane posts on my blog?” and I checked and…NOPE. I DO NOT. fjdsaklfjasdklfjldsf. I mean, that PROBABLY speaks for itself 🙈

I think I’ve casually mentioned it once or twice in passing but yeah, I’m not a fan of his. I mean, to say “he’s done a lot of horrible things” is like…a really shaky reason on a show like this and I get that *snorts* but in addition to finding some of the things he’s done particularly deplorable and having a very different view than many on his feelings toward/behavior toward eleanor, I also just…was never really emotionally compelled by him. *shrugs* HE JUST DOESN’T INTEREST ME THE WAY THE OTHERS DO. I recognize his growth and his positive moments during season 3 but even then I was just like [vaguely] “that’s pretty nice!!! that was a cool thing for a human to do!!!” but I wasn’t moved by him in the specific, by what makes vane his very special vane self, you know? his narrative, his beliefs, his worldview, his desires, just don’t especially interest me much in any way other than like…”oh, well that’s fascinating to compare to the way flint sees things!!!”

I’m genuinely compelled by most of the characters on this show; he is just not one of those characters for me. I don’t especially like him, don’t especially care about him. I know lots of other people do which is fine, but he’s never been ~the heart~ of this show for me. he’s just kinda there, somewhere around the spleen maybe. fjslkafjsdlfasdlf. I acknowledge the role he plays in the narrative and objectively see that it’s important; it’s just not important to me personally. THAT’S ALL O:)

anonymous asked:

My brother is trying to convince me that his house (Gryffindor) is better than my house (Hufflepuff) and I don't think he realizes that for all time I will think of Hufflepuff and Slytherin as better than Gryffindor and that his opinion is, in fact, wrong. Because obviously Gryffindor isn't the best. Yeah.

fight each other. get fists involved. it’s the only way to settle it babe

Mid season 9 and season 10 weren’t the best seasons

———————-

strongly agree | agree | neutral | disagree | strongly disagree

yeah, I don’t really complain much on this blog because I know a lot of my following still supports the recent seasons, but I felt let down especially by season 10. 11 was a little bit better though, and I have high hopes for s12. thanks!

unpopular opinions?

anonymous asked:

how do you feel about wes anderson... I hate him and I'm yet to find anyone else my age who hates him but I feel like you're the kind of person who would hate him too

I DONT ACTUALLY KNOW anything about him really… though yeah generally im the first to hate pretentious white male directors, which im sure he is.. i just know zero things about him hahaha

(reply to this post)

These are words to live by! by the way, you’re one of these people to me, you’re always super polite and kind in your replies, thank you so much :’) unfortunately yeah that can’t be said about everyone in the fandom… 

idk if I post my thoughts about it, the post will be super long so I guess most people won’t read it anyways. Sometimes I feel like I’m not being 100% honest on here just because I’ve never stated my full opinion on the subject… I’ll probably end up letting it out in one way or another, I just need to gather up courage and to take my time picking out the right words to depict in the most accurate way possible all of my thoughts :’)

“I NEVER THOUGHT I’D SEE, A TIME WHEN YOU WOULD BE
SO FAR AWAY FROM HOME, SO FAR AWAY FROM ME.”

posting photos with your significant other, sharing posts about them, and publicly discussing your boyfriend/girlfriend is great when you are happily secure and completely confident in your relationship - it’s even better when your significant other reciprocates and does the exact same thing. but when it is seemingly one-sided and photos are shared almost to flaunt a relationship just for the purpose of validating it, then maybe you should re-evaluate why you are parading your relationship around social media to begin with. 

I’ve had people respond to some of my meta about Pearl with citations of certain episodes and lines like, “Yeah but Pearl said this in [scene where she was really off and breaking down] so that must be what she thinks” and I’ve always felt like there was something Incorrect in using those scenes as “evidence” of her actual opinions but I could never put into words what it was so I never responded and?? I think I’ve figured it out now?

I’ve noticed for a while that, with certain exceptions, there is a general and  -jarring- difference in the way neurodivergent + mentally ill fans tend to interpret Pearl and the way neurotypical fans interpret her. I think that probably most NT people see moments of extreme emotion (so in Pearl’s case, “Rose’s Scabbard,” “Sworn to the Sword,” “Friend Ship”) as the times when a person is most honest–when the walls come down and the truth comes out. And ND people can experience them that way too sometimes, but more often, like, autistic people, mentally ill people, post-traumatic people, tend (basing this on myself and people close to me and people I follow on tumblr, so, don’t claim to speak for everyone, but) to see times of uncontrolled emotional turmoil and breakdown as times when they are Not Themselves, when the things they say come from desperation and confusion rather than their rational thoughts. For autistic people, stressful situations and the emotional responses that accompany them can be overwhelming and inhibit logic, causing thoughts that were once habitual but now disproven to come to the surface, or nagging insecurities to be voiced as if they are The Factual Truth. A major component of most if not all mental illnesses is the constant persuasive repetition, from parts of our minds that we have no control over, of things which we KNOW are not true. And when we’re stressed and vulnerable, it’s harder to listen to logic, the conscious self, the part of you that knows better, the part you that’s “you.”

“I need someone to tell me what to do.” “On the battlefield, Steven is what matters–you don’t matter.” Letting Steven fall off the platform. Trying to stay with the spaceship when it was about to blow up. All of these are things that Pearl said and did when she was in extreme states of stress, grief, and mental instability. All of them are specifically refuted and condemned, by Pearl herself, as soon as she’s back to baseline.

  • “What you’re saying may be true, but it doesn’t matter.”
  • “Rose made me feel like I was everything…I see now how much you two really care about each other.”
  • “Oh, what would she think of me now…”
  • “I could have killed us…I’m so sorry, Steven.”

^^^^THESE are statements Pearl makes when she is “herself,” rational and in full control of her perceptions. These are the statements we should be judging her character by. Neurodivergent and mentally ill people are more than the lies we constantly have to fight against. A breakdown says nothing about you, who you are, or what you believe, other than that you are mentally ill or under overwhelming stress. The action taken AFTER a breakdown, the willingness to own up and fix, the strength to understand that your illness isn’t you, says everything. I love how SU captures that. It’s something we should be paying attention to.

i absolutely hate it when people say “football is just a game” no its not just a game, its not just men running after a ball trying to get the ball into the net, its not just passing the ball to each other, its not “just a game” and that might sound stupid to people but its so much more, its the fans, its the enthusiasm of the fans, its the scarves, the flags, the banners, the cheers of the stadium, its the songs the fans sing during the game, its the passion not only the fans but also the players have for the game, its about the dedication and the love the players and the fans have for their team, for the sport its the feeling you get while watching your team, its the feeling you get when your team wins an important match, its the feeling you get when your team loses, its just the feeling you get while watching the team you love and watching the cheers and the celebrations. its also more than just a game because it unites people, it brings together so many cultures because so many people support a club and they all live in different countries supporting this one team  

football is just so beautiful and there will never be anything more beautiful than football

Johndave week - Day 4: Hurt/Comfort

Haha shit I’m late?? I haven’t done comics in literal years soooo. Yeah, this is something I think about in terms of John quite a lot. I can’t help but think it might bug him a lot now and then, even if he fixed a timeline, and when confronted he might lash out. Also, bonus pic;
