can i be more involved

sebastian stan is appreciated yet underappreciated at the same time. he’s pretty but he’s also this really good, interesting person. 

this panel has so many good moments [x] such as:

  • had to stop speaking because he couldn’t stop staring at this dog.
  • remembers taking a picture with someone 
  • “when you’re given a platform you have to do something about it..you have to expand beyond your own personal goals.”
  • “i never really thought in a million years that this character or these stories or something, you know, to have someone, who, just reached out to me and said you know, ‘thank you for recognizing something or i’m related to this’ is probably the most gratifying experience out of this whole process.”
  • “the task for me would be to be more involved and see where I can help…even if it’s just, I don’t know, putting a smile on someone’s face, or answering some questions or you know, making someone feel better.”
  • “i’m awkward, I get nervous nervous, I get panic attacks, I get crazy, you know, whatever, depression.”
  • “my job is always to remain as honest as I can and to just, i don’t know, help in some way.”
  • goes on this whole thing about trying to focus on what he can control v what he can’t control, how that helps him to be a happier, better person.
  • “one of my goals in life is to really embrace struggle.”
  • “it’s important to kinda take in and be really grateful about sort of what’s happening, which i always remind myself, no matter what, and i really, really am.”

this video is in romanian w/ english subtitles, so all info is from there [x]

  • “i was very lucky, i tend to forget this. when i was 22 or 23 years old i wasn’t thinking about what it meant to her after the revolution came, to decide to go elsewhere for a better life.” on his mother, the sacrifices she made, and better understanding now that he’s older.
  • “after my grandma died, to be honest, it was difficult for me to go back there cause i had to go to the cemetery, to live that moment again, and face what happened with her. it was a very delicate situation for me.”
  • “when i saw that car driving fast with that flag with the hole in the middle, I felt like… i always remember something major, important was happening.” on the revolution when he was a kid.
  • “when i was watching it (a video of Ceausescu) i felt something so…i mean, i remember like the memories were there in my muscles. i felt like a knife went through me when i heard that voice it felt to me like it was yesterday.” 
  • “the thing that i feel changed most was a deeper sense of responsibility.” on being asked if fame changed him.
  • his parents are what keep his interest in romania alive, and are the reasons he can still speak the language.

here’s another panel [x]

  • remembers more fans. 
  • “the rough patches that you may going through are sort of, also, these great gifts that you can kind of rise from.”
  • paraphrasing but: we’re all capable of rising from difficult moments in our lives to get somewhere. 
  • “it’s the company you keep. people you surround yourself are extensions of you, that’s how i always feel..and i was lucky to have good influences.”
  • gives a fan a hug.
  • space nerd who exposes his knowledge and would live on the moon.

Bonus things: 

  • i think it’s important to remind the people we love why we love them or how they’ve touched us. i mean, i guess if it wasn’t for my mom i could probably be, not even in america right now. [x]
  • "embrace your differences and the qualities about you that you think are weird. eventually they’re going to be the only things separating you from everyone else.” [x]

Hermione headcanon

I’m sure thatwe’ve all seen at least one post about Hermione being black, or fanart of her as a PoC, and there are many possible ways you reacted to this.

But imagine

Black Hermiojne who makes sure to know as much as she can, so she won’t be part of either stereotype about black people or Muggles

Black Hermione who follows rules to a T because back in the Muggle world racist teachers/classmates would blame her for any misbehavior

Black Hermione who starts SPEW because the treatment of house elves riminds her of how her ancestors were treated, and how her people are still treated so badly

Black Hermione just makes so much more sense to me

When you’re genuinely conflicted because you want more badass female characters leading games but you really, REALLY were looking forward to seeing more of a badass with a Boston accent going on some grand adventure with a “goddamn” old man……

marmaladespoon  asked:

Don't forget about that one odd professor who always stares you down for a bit too long and knows a bit too much about the intricacies of medieval culture and wears clothes that could maybe hide a hollow back. Don't forget about them. Everyone always excels in their class and no one is sure if it's because they're such a good teacher or because everyone is so terrified of failing. Probably some of both. But hey, you get full credit, so it can't be that bad.

I imagine that the more Involved you are, the more paranoid you become about people’s weird quirks.

here are some war and peace tidbits that weren’t in the great comet that i think the great comet fandom would enjoy if they don’t already know (and also encourage them to read the whole novel or at least watch the miniseries bc lbr it’s great).

  • for all of you who love pierre’s intense hatred of napoleon, it’s actually twice as funny because he loves napoleon at the beginning of war and peace. in the opening scene, he is one of the only people to defend his actions in society. he loved him.
  • anatole throws a party with dolokhov at the beginning and they end up capturing a bear, tying a police officer to it, and sending it down the river.
  • the hélène/dolokhov affair actually happened waaaay before all of the other events in the great comet!! it happened only a year or so after hélène’s marriage to pierre in 1805. during the events of the great comet she had actually just ended an affair with a guy named boris drubetskoy, who is mentioned briefly during the opera!
  • after the duel between pierre and dolokhov ended his affair with hélène, dolokhov stayed with the rostovs and actually developed a Massive Crush™ on sonya!! he proposed to her but she turned him down for her cousin/natasha’s brother, nikolai
  • the kuragin sibling’s dad, prince vassily, actually briefly tried setting anatole up with marya bolkonsky. marya (or mary, as she’s called in the great comet) was actually really into him for a bit until she caught anatole doing stuff with her french companion, mlle bourienne

pls ask me more abt this damn book i’m obsessed and great comet was what started my obsession okay omg. also talk to me about hélène kuragina shes my wife

Spoilers from chapter 126 shows someone putting a gun to Soma’s head. While the identity of the shooter has drawn a lot of interest, I have another question.

Who would want to shoot Soma?

In the terms of the story, Soma is one of the more innocent characters. He’s never directly killed anyone, although Ciel used him to indirectly cause the death of people in the Blue Sect. Soma genuinely cares for people and is kind. So, why shoot him?

The only reason that someone might want to shoot Soma that I can think of is his involved in the F5. More than one person has been able to connect Ciel’s group with the deaths of those in the Blue Sect. While Soma was innocent since he had no idea that his actions might lead to death, someone else might not know that. He could be the one facing punishment for Ciel’s crimes.

Another idea is that someone targeted Soma in order to hurt Ciel, which I have discussed with @thedarkestcrow. Soma openly calls Ciel his friend and treats him like a little brother. While Ciel had attempted to sever ties with Soma and Agni in the previous chapter, this isn’t public knowledge. Someone might think hurting/killing Soma might be a way to hurt Ciel. Or, this is all part of a plan to frame Ciel. I mean, a dead body in his house might be hard to explain if it’s reported before Ciel and Sebastian could take care of matters.

Those are just a few ideas that are running through my head. I’ll write this out properly once I can buy and read the chapter for myself.

Thoughts?

I AM THE DEVIL - RUN

if you find yourself interested in me, or you find me interested in you, run

run while you can, I am poison, I am a drug, a cancer, the more involved you become the more I will control you and feed on your hate and make you a lesser version of myself,

picture being lost in a room, but you see the door and refuse to open it instead , you pretend the door is not there and dig several holes in the room to reach the door in the end,

confusion & complication have become my forte to inflict upon others, & I hate it, I hate myself, I wish I was dead, I’ve tried to die, I want it, so bad, I want it more than I want to be alive, I want it more than I want to succeed, but I want you, I want you more, can you fall with me.

I’m just trying to do more and more, I’m excited to get more involved in every way that I can. Whether it’s producing or the creative for my stage direction, I just want to get down to every detail. That’s my progression, learning my craft as a solo artist. I’m kind of itching a little bit. I want to work. I’ve learned over four or five years that it’s good to work because you’re earning, not spending.

I went to my first protest today and it was amazing. Here are some pictures. (sources: Salt Lake Tribune and Everett Thomas Fitch)

I met this guy there and he helped me carry my pride flag. There were over one thousand of us marching up to the state capitol and there were amazing speakers from the community. They touched on police brutality, racism, capitalism, immigration, islamophobia, the rights of indigenous peoples, LGBTQ rights, and we were all just showing so much love and support for each other. 

There were a handful of counter-protestors calling us whiny millennials that really bothered me when we first got there, but after a while I found them laughable. There was a thousand of us and maybe 5 of them. I love my community and can’t wait to be more involved. This is just the beginning. ✊

okay but i just love the fact that emeraude is constantly promoting shadowhunters in spanish speaking regions and she specifically targets latinx viewers to give them the representation that is sorely lacking and she always makes sure to speak spanish in interviews and on social media so that spanish speakers can be involved more easily and i just love her all she wants is for kids like her to have a role model and i just

things i want for skam season 4

- the main character is someone who we don’t know a lot about like chris (literally both of them), maybe jonas, sana or eskild my gay son

“For me the task is kinda be more involved and see how I can help, even if it’s just I don’t know, putting a smile on someone’s face or answering some questions or making somebody feel better. Listen, we’re all crazy anxious people, it doesn’t matter if I’m sitting here and you’re there. I’m awkward, I get nervous, I get panic attacks, I get crazy, depression. I mean it’s the world we live in. I think it’s important that we all remember that at the end of the day we’re just the same person [..] So, my job, I think, is to always just try to remain as honest as I can and just, I don’t know, help in some way.” - Sebastian on life goals (source)

Chapter 9: Visitors; but way more dramatic XD

Please tell me that Green actually sees through her pain, and it hurts to see her smile because he knows, but despite all that she’s still selfless, putting others before herself; showing concern to those around her, even when they don’t

The words “It’s just been so long since I’ve actually been treated like a person.” echoes in his head; how long has it been since she was last shown respect? He had to, he just had to.

Sebastian talking about his life goals: “I think for me the task is to be more involved and see how I can help, even if it’s just, I don’t know, putting a smile on someone’s face or answering some questions or making somebody feel better. So my job I think it’s to always just try to be as honest as I can and just I don’t know help in some way.” (Wizard World Austin, 2016)

You know how when you wipe a spill from side to side and all you do is spread it around instead of cleaning it? That’s how I’d describe the whole jontron thing. Just put a paper towel over him, soak him up, throw the paper towel in the trash and Forget About Him.
