can you two stop being so precious so i can draw something in character

Reverse Idol (Jungkook)

Before I start this, I gotta say a happy birthday to Jung Hoseok, I hope he’s having/had (depending on the time zone) an amazing bday I’m watching the vlive rn but I’ve seen some gifs and it seems like he was really happy and that makes me s o happy also his new hair is so beyond cute I’m in love!! Last but certainly not least is the second half of the Busan line, the final part to the maknae line, our golden maknae who is continuing to prove he’s talented, the first time I heard the whole “chong, jojun, balsa" bit I thought it was hobi but the fact that it’s kook is so amazing bc this kid can really contort his voice and I can’t wait for the MV, Jeon Jungkook aka kookie

  • This AU is gonna be about what I think would happen if the reader was the idol and BTS were the fans, you can also think about this like a general celebrity post, I’m gonna be basing this off of kpop idols bc it’s easier for me to write with just one focus instead of being all the over place with it but if you wanted to see this as an actor!reader or a non-kpop singer!reader post, you could easily do that (and of course this is all still gender neutral)
  • Another series with idol!reader is my idol couple series (kook’s post is here) where both the reader and BTS are idols
  • This AU is gonna feature some youtuber!Jungkook (here) to sum it up, he’s a gamer on youtube 
  • Jungkook is another huge fanboy but he’s the O.O fanboy like chim’s the :) fanboy tae’s the :D fanboy but kook is just wide eyed “oh my god oh my god”
  • When he loves an artist, he seems to really just look up to them like him and GD, we all know that boy loves GD I mean wasn’t it him that made kook wanna become a singer/idol that alone says a l o t about how much kook respects him
  • In public he tries to be -_- (it doesn’t last long but he does try) but at home he loses it
  • He’ll hear your song in public and his eyes get really big and Yoongi’s mentally starting the ten second countdown before Jungkook starts  dancing along to it 
  • It starts off with just a bit of foot tapping around the three second mark, at the five second mark, his head starts bobbing, at the seven second mark, he starts swaying until he breaks into the full choreography
  • Whenever he plays your music, everyone just knows he’s about to come running into the room dressed head to toe in your merch and start screaming the songs so they just all prepare themselves, vmin start stretching so they don’t pull anything 
  • Sure enough, kook slides into the room with a hairbrush to use as a mic and start singing as loudly as he possibly can, not caring if he goes off key and he starts doing the dance to the song
  • But it’s actually really cute but all of the other boys get these huge smiles and they gotta join in
  • Okay but kook gets s o fucking into lip syncing or just goofing around and singing like we all remember the Linkin Park video that’s about all the proof I need and the fact that no one was really reacting to it tells me that he’s doing that shit at home too
  • The boys all know your music since I have this head canon that if one member knows an artist, they all know that artist just bc they’re all so close it’s easy to assume they’re sharing their favorite music with each other
  • Him reacting to performances is super cute too bc he gets so into it and he’s singing along and dancing and you can tell he’s genuinely enjoying it and what I love about kook is that he gives the performances his full attention
  • I was watching him react to one of Astro’s performances and his eyes are just glued to the stage and it’s so sweet
  • Of course I gotta bring up his reaction to the Rainism performance he literally started performing in the crowd and it was so fucking funny and cute you could just see how excited he got
  • His fans all know about his crush on you even though he tries to play it cool it’s pretty damn obvious
  • In the background of a lot of his videos, you can see some of your posters and some albums and he just giggles when he gets questions about it which totally gives away the whole crush thing bc your face lighting up at the mention of someone is normally a pretty good indicator that you have some sort of emotion towards them, whether it’s platonic or romantic
  • Plus in his live streams, he’s always got one of your albums playing in the background
  • And Vmin may have just maybe totally told everyone about his crush on you during one of their Q&As and Jungkook may have screamed when he saw them do it he m a y b e chased Jimin with a shoe and threw a banana at Tae’s head
  • Okay so an a m azing anon suggested this and it has become my head canon entirely
  • Jungkook has a tumblr right and it’s mainly art and gaming shit, those are the main focuses
  • He uploads his art a lot, they’re normally drawings of characters or musicians he likes and one day he uploads a drawing of you and everyone flips
  • Not only is it s o realistic, it’s also getting all of the shippers fired up and ready to scream bc it’s obvious it took some time to draw and Tae uploads a few videos of kook on snapchat like two weeks ago where he’s staring really intently at the screen of his phone and no one knows what kook’s drawing so everyone’s excited
  • And then the excitement doubles when it’s revealed that he was drawing you and then Jimin adds onto the excitement by stating it’s not the first time kook has drawn you 
  • You notice the drawing bc everyone sends it to you, even the people who don’t follow kookie send it to you bc it’s rea ll y good we all know how talented kook is especially when he puts his mind to something and he’s not about to half ass a drawing of his crush
  • You tweet out about it bc you don’t know who did it so you’re just like hey this is really good, whoever drew it and then everyone immediately starts telling you it’s Jungkook’s (the boys also help out by tagging you on instagram in kook’s pictures bc they’re wingmen all of them)
  • Kook decides in honor of your birthday, he’s gonna release a cover of his favorite song by you bc he’s released a few covers here and there already so why not do one for you and that does n o t help the shippers’ poor lil hearts at all
  • He doesn’t know that you know who he is yet so he doesn’t even think you’re gonna see it but little does he know, you’re following him on all the social medias bc he’s super cute in all the ways
  • It’s a more laid back version of your song, it’s just piano and kook’s voice which is s o nice and you can’t believe that this is the same kid you just watched dance around in a Pikachu onesie during one of his celebration videos
  • After that, you just h a v e to contact him bc he’s so sweet in his bday wishes to you and he’s just so cute and precious you gotta do it
  • “Your drawing was really cute and your cover was amazing, I’d love to meet you”
  • Ight but to announce your relationship to the public, he releases all of the other drawings he’s done of you
  • “Thnx for being my muse but no, I’m not gonna stop texting you pictures of puppies at three in the morning, they’re important”
When You Said Destruction..., A Berserker Thor/Jotun Loki Thorki Fic

Summary: If Thor cannot find a battle partner, someone to calm his berserker rage, soon, Odin will have no choice but to imprison his only son for the safety of Asgard.

Word Count: 11,157

Rating: Explicit 

Characters: Thor, Loki, Odin, Frigga, Sif

Pairing: Thor/Loki, Odin/Frigga

Features: Berserker Thor, Jotun Loki, Intersex Loki, Mating, Bonding, Cunnlings, Mentions of unconscious racism 

Notes: I promised thorkizilla a berserker Thor story months ago (like, back in January I think), and somehow it turned into this giant monster of a thing. It was supposed to be two scenes, one smut, and ended up being 11k of plot. Don’t look at me. I was trying something new with the berserker troupe, so I really hope you guys enjoy it.

First half betaed by the wonderful batsutousai. Second half not betaed because I am an impatient asshole.

When You Said Destruction… 

“When you said destruction, you failed to mention he is the living definition of the word.”

Odin looks less than impressed at Loki’s comment, not that Loki really cares all that much for what makes the Allfather happy. “We have a deal, sorcerer. Your works lies before you."  To emphasize his point, Odin gestures to his rampaging son. "Do not waste my time.”

Kurobas Cup 2015: Report (20/9/15)

O….M….G!! Kurobas Cup 2015 has officially ended, but not without leaving me precious memories to remember. Today has been crazy. I’m still breathing on adrenaline and excitement so please excuse and bear with me while I half-flail and half-recount on my once-in-a-lifetime experience at Kurobas Cup 2015!!

To say that it’s crowded would be a bloody understatement. The patience and courage of fans to brave the hot weather and lack of sleep to get the event goods is pretty commendable. Luckily, they do pre-sale of goods the day before and since I got Tokyo Game Show ticket, I was around the area and managed to check out the goods and buy them before they sell out. When I got to the queue today, all T-shirts, pen light, rubber straps are sold out.

So before we go inside, we had to queue to check that the tickets are ours (to prevent reselling). If you check out, then they give you a wristband. I love that they gave us, the afternoon lot, rainbow-coloured bands XD it’s like nijimura’s spirit was participating with us :3. For evening lot, it was a pale gold colour band (like iPhone gold colour).

Then we queued up to get inside. There were knb related displays inside. The main thing we saw (those sitting in arena) is a giant board with messages from casts and crew. I basically got stuck in the front trying to take pics and didn’t get time to look at the signed basketball and mukkun’s snack display :(. I swear i was stick within the crowd for like 10 mins >,<

After I managed to break free from the crowd in front of the message board, I quickly went upstairs and take pictures of the celebratory wreaths, there were too many pretty ones by the way as you can see in the pictures. The mukkun snack display is from Knb official twiiter, I didn’t have time to see it T.T

Anyway I was sitting in block 13 in arena - it was at the back and quite far from the stage, luckily my seat is the aisle one so I have more freedom than others. So we waited for awhile and then finally…..

The opening act is one and only OLDCODEX!!!! ADLJAKFJDLJA (excuse my key smash but it’s just aaaahhh). By the way tatsun cut his hair short and damn it tatsun. I was swooning, literally swooning while jumping up and down waving my orange pen light like a crazy fan. Oldcodex did full length Lantana but they did a shorter version of Walk and Catal Rhythm. WHAT AN OPENING ACT!!

By the way my memory is all jumbled up so the orders would probably be wrong. Next is kagakuro’s Shout!. It was a nice follow up to old codex. I love that during Shout, the hall was a sea of red and pale blue lights >,< At the end, they did the amazing fist bump causing the fans (including me) to go wild and screamed our throats out. Kagakuro also sang another duet ‘そしてこれから、何度でも’ from the 2nd duet series. It was a very nice emotional song, and during the song the back screen was playing all the precious kagakuro moments <3 <3 <3

Then it was aokise’s duet, sorry I forgot the name of the song and it’s one I haven’t heard before. Kasamatsu and Kise also sang the duet ‘glory blue’ (I’m pretty sure that’s the name of the song) but I’m not too familiar with that CD.

My favourite duet has to be midotaka not only because they has a nice chemistry on stage, but also they came on stage on the infamous ‘rear car’ with shin-chan holding a giant penguin as seen in the anima ending. They sang ‘Way to Victory’ by the way. Everything was spot on and tatsun even imitated pedalling shin-chan with all his might haha (but it was in fact being pushed around by the staff, as pointed out by onoD later XD)

At one point, a short skit with mukkun and muro-chin came on. Mukkun was munching on potato chips as usual and himuro was telling him to stop eating since he has to sing for us soon. Then mukkun of course ask himuro to sing for him, which was rejected XD. Of course, suzuken soon came on stage and sang none other than ‘Lazy Lazy’ haha :3

After several performances, they finally introduced all the characters and their respective seiyuus one by one and as you can guess, it was time to scream and go wild.

They also did the end card mini live reading of painting the wall in the public basketball court. It was amazing hearing it live. Midorin came on stage hold daruma lol (daruma is a red, hollowed out japanese doll, please google for pic). The cutest moment is when nojima (Izuki) also acted as nigou loll. Also kudos to nojima, he made two puns live on the stage haha. My favourite part was when zakki (as sakurai) came to help and he met nigou. He ended up apologising to nigou about last time (reference to previous drama I believe) and everyone was like ‘is that guy apologising to a dog’ Lollll. Also another point is where kasamatsu was talking to miyaji(?) and kasamatsu was like I should how to throw pineapple, which midorin huffed and said ‘pineapples are not for throwing nanodayo!’.

Also Kensho came on stage at some point and did a short version of Zero. As you can guess, we all went crazy.

Omg, zakki did a solo song and sang Ayamari Kinoko no Yuutsu (The Melancholy of the Apologetic Mushroom), it was so cute <3 :3 he was all smiles.

Hoshi (kasamatsu) also sang a solo song but I forgot the name of it >,<. The highlight was when ryohei came on stage during the song and hoshi (in captain’s voice) told him to get off stage lol. Then ryohei was like ‘sorry sorry’ and as he was leaving, his hat fell off lol.

Also, kishow did his solo song ‘any time, any place’. I’m not familiar with that song either so I can’t say much about it.

EDIT:  how can I forget about kagahimu’s duet ‘Blue Sky Memories’. Just remembered about it after seeing Onoyuu’s tweet (he was saying how happy he was to be able to sing together with kishow, onoyuu-chan your fanboy is showing lol :3) . Haha as much as we, the fans, were fangirling about their duet, I swear Onoyuu was over the moon for being able to duet with his idol kishow XD. Also, mid way through the song, they fist bump and O M G onoyuu was so so happy. Bless that precious fanboy :3 <3

They also covered a lot of songs from the Seirin mini album. Hosoyan and Kojima sang Challenger’s spirit. Eguchi and Gou again sang ‘エンノシタ レギュラー’ (unsung regulars). Inoue gou later commented that he was happy that he finally have a song (aww).

Another highlight is when the cast (minus the kamiya and a few others) came on stage and say a few lines, and kensho (precious kensho) shared with us that during backstage, hosoyan came up to him and said ‘Kensho, it’s bad, it’s bad, I’m sweating like crazy’ lol (and kensho did that in hosoyan’s voice too XD). Then hosoyan followed up and said he was sweating so much that he wondered if it’s raining on stage XD (bless that man child and his tendency to sweat on stage, i’m remembering the free! event haha)

All 4 rakuzan casts has a mini skit. The time line is where everyone (except rakuzan cos they were at kyoto) finished painting the wall in tokyo, then a couple months later rakuzan came to the wall to draw their own graffiti as seen in the ending animation. I think akashi kinda tricked mayuzumi to come along and they made him draw something next to the pineapple (drawn by miyaji lol). They were like ‘why is there a pineapple on a basketball wall’ and I think it was hayama who said ‘probably cos someone was hungry’ lol.

There was also a mini skit between akashi and mayuzumi, and one thing I remember is mayuzumi being tsundere and saying first-years should be kept as far away as possible. Then hayama and reo asked for a photo, and mayuzumi was like ‘ok fine, just one photo’.

At some point, the four uncrowned kings (no nebuya at this event) did a mini skit. The start was so funny. It was just hosoyan and hamada. Hamada (kiyoshi) was saying how amazing the event was and how many fans were there, and then the precious hosoyan messed up his lines XD (i went aww and lol) and everyone was quick to reassure him. They were saying how amazing this event was then suddenly Reo’s voice came on saying ‘Junpei-chan, where are you?’. This obviously scared junpei (and hosoyan) away and he went off the stage XD lol.

Then the 2 uncrowned kings from rakuzan, reo and hayama, came on stage. Turns out Reo was looking for Junpei-chan to  take a photo with him :3. But kiyoshi was like hyuuga left maybe because he is shy haha. Then reo replied that there’s no reason to be shy in a very coy voice lol XD.  Reo asked kiyoshi to find hyuuga for him and kiyoshi agreed :3 Reo then asked kiyoshi to take a photo with him, and hayama was like ‘sure I can take it for you’. Then they realised that it was rare for the uncrowned kings to be on the same stage, and they were saying how glad they were that hanamiya wasn’t with them cos he’s quite a difficult guy to deal with. Suddenly, junjun’s voice came on and he was ‘what are you guys talking about’ and we all thought it was a pre-recording. But holy shit no…it was him, jun jun in flesh and all his snarky glory. We all went CRAZY!!! Then he take part in the skit and say along the lines of how can this be complete without him and everyone commented that he would be hard to miss since he tends to leave a (bad) impression lol. The highlight is when reo called him ‘Mako-chan’ hahaha and asked him to take a picture with him. Reo basically keeps calling him mako-chan despite junjun’s protest and he ended the skit by saying ‘why the hell nobody listens to me’ lol XD <3

Oh kensho reminds us to keep junjun’s surprise appearance as a secret. He said please don’t tweet or post anything on social media until after the evening event. He also asked us not to speak about it on the train since you don’t know who will be listening haha :3.

At one point, all 6 kiseki came on stage and did the Regal generation!!! It was beyond words, especially for all of them to be on stage at the same time and sing a song. Pretty amazing i must say. also I was fascinated by the pen lights during this song tbh, it was basically a sea of rainbow colours across the hall, just so pretty.

The best part for me is when they showed the preview for the OVA (episode 75.5) ‘The best present’. It’s basically about how kiseki gets together to play street basketball and later celebrate kuroko’s birthday. IT WAS AMAZING!!!!! In the trailer, we saw midorin passed to kise, mukkun blocking aomine, akashi going against kise, and finally AOKURO’S FIST BUMP!! akdlajfdkla I lost it at this point. Then they also showed himuro cooking, furi being scared shitless when he opened the door and it was the majesty akashi-sama hahaha. Basically it was too precious and I cannot describe how much I’m looking forward to it.

Then Granrodeo closed the event. They first did the full length of ‘Memories’. Kishow then says thank you for all our support. E-zuka also said a few lines. After that, they were like we has a great time with KnB and we cannot thank enough. Since they did 6 songs over 3 seasons, they said they will sang all. They did but only the shorter versions (except Memories).

After that, all the cast came on stage to say thank you and good bye. They were wearing their respective colour-coded Kurobas cup 2015 t shirts (which I’m lucky enough to get in Seirin’s white colour). A few highlights I remember is where they were commenting on Hatano (Reo) wearing make up. They said his lips are pink and Hatano commented that he borrowed his older sister’s eye liner? (ok this is where I lament my less than perfect japanese for not being able to understand normal japanese speech 100%). They also asked the fans to put their hands up if they noticed him wearing makeup, to which only a few hands went up lol. Tbh I didn’t notice it haha X3 Also when it comes onoyuu’s turn, he went and say the usual thank you. Then he was like I was do a celebratory jump as a thank you. It was a good jump haha. OMG must not forget to mention that

As an encore, they did the amazing seishun tip off!! kurobas cup 2015 version. During the song, all 4 rakuzan casts, ryohei, hoshi, hosoyan and nojima went on mini stage that staff pushed around along the aisles. I had my attention fixed on kamiyan, masuda and ryohei that I didn’t notice tatsun and onoD on the rear car being pushed around by the staff on the upper floor until they’re half way through lol. One thing for sure, Kamiyan is tiny (like akashi :3)

Then sadly, it was the end of the event. It felt too short for me since I was having so much fun and screaming my throat off. However, now I’m recounting the whole thing and yup it was a solid 2 hour event. This is technically my first ever anime related event and it will definitely stay with me forever. The atmosphere inside is electric and it consumes you. Despite the not so good seat and not being able to see much since the lady in front of me is quite tall, I’m so glad that I was able to experience this first hand. I’m still high on adrenaline but I’m also very tired lol.

By the way, evening event news: KNB MOVIE IS HAPPENING!!!! holy deities aldjfajlkdfjal;jfd I think it will be based on extra game but O…. M……G. Tbh during the noon event, they kept saying that this won’t be the end of knb and please keep supporting us and we hope to see you soon. So I was thinking they’re either gonna do ova or a short anime based on extra game. Then they dropped this movie bombshell…geez bloody hell >,< 

Also, in the evening show, Onoken cried??!!! Aww someone give him a hug. He’s so precious. I wished I was there to see and share a few tears with him >,<

P.S: I was sad that Kamiyan didn’t have time to sing ‘Final Emperor’, that was my fav song. Also murahimu didn’t do the ‘Zero Game’ duet, which I was desperately hoping for >,< but they did the best with how little time they have. 

Bonus: so I bought this event pamphlet and it contains casts’ Q&A. One question is what would be your dream team? My fav answer has to be ryohei’s. That cheeky man answered that his dream team would be just 5 kise’s lollll, and that all the kise’s would just perfect copy haha. Well he does have a point XD…..

Moonlight and Memories [Kanato Sakamaki X Reader]

              The night was so very quiet. It was a cool autumn night as you lied in your soft, king-sized bed, your (e/c) eyes still wide open. On nights like this you couldn’t sleep. You hated how quiet it was; the silence always put you on edge. When things were like this you always expected some random vampire to jump out of nowhere and immediately began sucking your blood… though more of Laito and Ayato’s appearances than the others.

BSD Pairing Concerns

Ya this has been bugging me for a while

Let me get this out of the way before anything else


It’s perfectly fine by me who you ship! It’d be pretty petty of me to go around and say, ‘OMG Y U SHIP DEM?! *Insert pairing name here* IS THE WAY TO GO’. I think that’d be kind of childish. <|D Now on to the main post where I will list my reasoning’s:

1. This is a no grounded fear to be honest, and a bit idiotic, but I’m a strange girl sue me >|T I tend to see a lot of people ship Soukoku (Double Black) rather than Dazushi, which again, I have no problem with. I tend to think that both the ships of Dazai and Chuuya or Akutagawa and Atsushi are really cute, it’s just I am kind of worried that Dazushi will become a rare-ship where people don’t really talk about it and those who do get strange looks or are put down for it. So it’s not so much of how popular one of the ships are as it is of people ridiculing others for who they like to pair together. This will come back later.

For me to buy Andromeda, I need:

A protagonist that isn’t Shep 2.0

Include the female “alternative” (because god knows the female protagonist is never the default) in some (not ALL, don’t piss your pants male gamers) promotional material for once. By doing this, you acknowledge that you actually have female fans (you DO) and you can also draw in more female fans who would otherwise think this is yet another game where they’d have to play a guy. Show us who we can be if we purchase your game. Stop catering to your precious male gamers and making up all your bullshit excuses for doing so. They are only the majority BECAUSE you cater to them. If more developers kissed my ass half as much, I’d be buying more games left and right. As it is, though, everything is still for men – which is made fairly obvious by the shitty treatment of both Jacob and Thane’s romances. Jacob’s romance. I mean, damn, Bioware. WHY. (And I don’t even LIKE Jacob.)

Exploration that is rewarding (as in results in an actual quest with a mini story and input from followers … and some cool gear).

No characters forced as my best friend. I should be allowed to hate whoever I want (like in Dragon Age). And love whoever I want (like in Dragon Age). Shit, in DA you could even hate Varric, and he was written to be liked.

No characters forced as the default love interest (liara, liara, liara). This is an rpg. Please allow me to role play? If I’m playing a character who hates Liara, let me then hate Liara, or don’t include the option to hate her at all (as an example). I don’t mind my character being flirted with. But having everyone else in the game decide that I’m attracted to someone else when I’ve said I’m not? (damn Aethyta)

Romances get equal treatment. All romances get the same amount of content, be it eight scenes or two. Gay and straight romances (and bi if they’re willing) are included from day one. If a LI interest has to die, do it WELL. Miranda’s death was done well, but Thane? Omfg. Have the protagonist respond emotionally to their lover dying or being injured. It’s pitiful that I have to head canon Shepard stopping to give Thane a trembling kiss when he is stabbed by Kai Leng, but she is falling over herself when Kaidan gets hurt. Similarly, if I didn’t romance Kaidan, I shouldn’t be going frantic over his injuries in loverly fashion.

I want villains that aren’t covered in plot armor (Kei Leng – the cowardly buffoon who only wins because the plot allows/needs him to). I also want villains that don’t draw indifference from me (Saren). The Illusive Man was the best villain in the whole damn series, period. My heart rate goes up when I see his face, he was that good. Do that AGAIN.

DON’T force me to customize/create armor. Especially for a squad of eight characters.

DON’T force me to loot useless crap. The lack of looting in Mass Effect 3 was perfect.

DON’T force me to do stupid memory games and puzzles for EVERY. SINGLE. DOOR. The acute absence of this in ME3 was also heavenly.

Give me a toolkit so I can mod in the decent hair that you can’t seem to make.

Keep the plot consistent. Don’t contradict what you told me before. Even if you do the typical doh-see-doh and switch up writers, these writers should take the time to become familiar with the lore and the characters of a world that I am investing HARD EARNED MONEY into so that they do it some justice. Example? Thane’s character assassination between ME2 and ME3. Telling me in the first game that Synthesis was wrong. Telling me in the last game that Synthesis was right.

Make my decisions matter. If you’re going to have me unite two species at war, then don’t turn around and ask me to kill them all in the end of the game. What was the POINT spending x amount of hours grinding through a mission just to have my work mean NOTHING? Mass Effect was very good with making decisions matter right up until the end of Mass Effect 3, where nothing you did at all mattered. Which leads me to the final prerequisite on my list …

Give me a GOOD ENDING. If I just spent 100+ hours gathering allies, allow me to make USE of them. Give me a cinematic where my allies are fighting bravely against the enemy. If the hero is going to die, do it well and make their sacrifice MATTER. If the hero is going to live, do not for the love of god leave it ambiguous. Ambiguous endings are NOT for role playing games where the player has personally invested themselves in the character they have created. Leaving us hanging so you can be all “artistic” is cruel. Don’t introduce a new plot element at the last minute. It’s tacky storytelling at its best to pull some random something out of your ass and have it give the player an annoying information dump. Tell what happens to the world we fought for with epilogue slides. Could you do that much for us after we’ve spent YEARS (I’m new to ME but I spent years loving DA, so I can sympathize) loving these characters?

These are not unreasonable requests.  In fact, Bioware, you’ve pulled them off beautifully before. Or you wouldn’t have my money.

Cillian Murphy gets political in a new interview with ShortList.

On how he picks films: A lot of film now feels disposable and forgettable. I’m not interested in that. I’ve always been attracted to projects that leave you altered in some way, emotionally bruised. Film should have that effect on you, and there should be some residue with you a week later.

On a film that left him altered: There’s a Swedish film that I adore called Force Majeure. It’s the last film that actually made me shout at the screen. I still think about it now. It’s about a family on holiday skiing, and they’re having lunch when an avalanche hits. The father runs away, leaving his wife and children. They all survive. Everyone’s OK, but the rest of the film is about them trying to deal with that selfishness. It’s a meditation on masculinity and relationships. A masterpiece, I think.

On modern warfare:  I think the Second World War was the last just war. I’m a complete pacifist at heart, but I can understand how important it was for mankind to stop the Third Reich in its tracks and to attack the Final Solution. Nowadays we talk about Syria, and tit’s nearly impossible to understand what the hell is going on. The ‘war on terror’ is so vague. It’s very strange. The whole thing is just one big massive mind f*ck. Modern warfare is all about technology and who’s watching who, and who has all the intelligence. It’s hard to know what’s noble and what’s not. I admire soldiers and I admire their bravery, but you just wonder, sometimes, where the motivation comes from politically.

The full Q&A under the cut, including Cillian’s fave war joke (it’s corny af) and why he doesn’t need to give acting advice to Harry Styles (he’s not in the ‘elderly actor giving advice’ bracket yet).

We Need to Talk About IchiRuki

..I have a hard time understanding how a human could be so malnourished in love, soul, and emotional integrity they end up not shipping IchiRuki (weird, I know).

So I have taken it upon myself to create a series of sorts, detailing and remembering why IchiRuki is as breathtakingly divine as it is. The first chapter needed it’s own freaking post if that tells you anything about how fundamentally good and beautiful these two are and this ship is.

Let’s start at the very beginning, ♫ a very good place to start. ♫

Death and Strawberry, You are given a beautifully unorthodox epithet right off the bat. You have been spoon-fed the least subtle positioning of characters literature has ever produced. The most important two have been distinguished as cold-calculus fact. They are a universally good pair. Oh, and that poem?

  • “Because we are amorphous. We hold that in reverence.”

Because we are vague in our creation (our people lack structure and focus), we can respect that (each other).

The IchiRuki meeting was, without dramatics or overstatements, one of the most iconic moments in manga history…do you understand what I am saying to you right now?

Rukia became a symbol (a new frame of time) for us as much as for Ichigo. She is synonymous with death and likened to the image of a butterfly. For Ichigo, the moment his soul accepted attaching it’s red string to hers, she announced the end of unsatisfying days.

That chemistry wasn’t built, wasn’t forced, it was natural, it was easy, it was meant for them. We, the readers, all saw that. Even when we didn’t know what Ichigo and Rukia could be. That chemistry, that compatibility, for lack of more powerful words, was so unprecedented, it became a phenom in and of itself.

- Ichigo’s eyes widening upon seeing an eerie, clad-in black woman, with an old-fashioned sword almost as big (or small in the case of 4’ 8½ stature) as her body.

- “It is near…”

- “It is near… my ass, retard!”

- The hold-your-breathe prestige Rukia was building with the audience totally shattering when Ichigo kicked her butt and bent her into the Nike sign as she flew across his room.

- “You’re a pretty confident burglar, eh!?”

- Ichigo and Rukia showing us the first of their many stupid expressions… because of each other.

- “Y-you can see me…? I mean to say, did you-did you just kick…”

-Rukia not missing a beat as Isshin literally flew in and drop-kicked Ichigo in the back. Rukia not batting an eyelash as Ichigo delivered a kick (a hard-hitting sweet-chin music) straight to his father’s jaw.

-”Dad, look at this guy! What the heck is going on with the security system in this house?!….I’m talking about this samurai-costumed-”

- “It is not possible for ordinary men to see me. I am– a “Shinigami.”“

-Ichigo, not an extremely trusting person at this point, felt Rukia was safe enough to him to and his family to let her sit and explain to him her different realm of reality.

- “Okay! I’ll believe you!…Yeah right! Like I could believe that, dumb ass!”

-’Table to be flipped for the sake of comedy only’.

-Ichigo aggressively stroking Rukia on the back of the head. It was an awkward little caress.

- “ have spewed nonsense…Bakudō # 1. Sai!” (塞, Restrain)

-Rukia kicking/stepping on Ichigo butt in return for the kick. Step on me, Kuchiki-Taichou.

-Rukia sending that spirit to Soul Society and Ichigo looking puzzled and worried as hell. Like did you see the lack of nerve, he thought he was done for.

- “I will kindly explain with illustrations so even a brat like you can understand… Any questions?”

- “Yeah, can I start by asking why your drawings abnormally suck?”

-Ichigo’s sharpie mustache!

-“UggAhhh! Dammit! Just because I can’t move!”

‘“I will continue my explanation now, your highness, Mr.Baron.” (If I took the translation right, a baron is nobility of the lowest order…Rukia with her classy-ass roasts).

-The first account of many a future IchiRuki eye-sex.

-Rukia already realizing the depths of Ichigo, even if during that moment it was only “why could he sense a hollow when I couldn’t?” To which even just a little later she witnessed the depth of his commitment to his family and his core deep need and instincts. For Rukia whose “happiness” until this point could only be considered “decent” and whose “trust” of others and in others characters was impossibly low…Ichigo was..weird. Weird and good, and that’s not something Rukia has witnessed. Remember that.

-Rukia telling Ichigo to get off his high-horse and let him let her take care of him and his family.

-Rukia checking on Karin and trying to reassure Ichigo his little baby sister would be fine.

-Rukia watching and desperatley trying to communicate “stop! If you do that, your soul-your soul is done for!”

-Ichigo and his ridiculous power. Rukia being stunned and entranced.

-Ichigo grabbing a baseball bat to fight off a spiritual entity…precious berry-boy.

-”—What exatly is he—….?!”

-Ichigo being afraid. Shaking from fear until he saw his baby sister snatched and suffocating in the hollows grip. Understanding came slowly for the audience, but we began to see Ichigo’s motivations.

-Rukia chopping off a high-reiatsu hollows arm like butter while staring Ichigo dead in the eye. Silent communication already I think.

-Rukia physically saving Yuzu and communicating Ichigo to catch her.

-“Don’t lose focus! It’s okay! None of your family have had their souls eaten yet!”


“Yes none. Not even your father over there.”

-Rukia being able to reassure and comfort Ichigo already because she understood his concerns were not with himself or his personal well-being.

-Rukia telling Ichigo the hollow was after powerful souls…specifically his.

-”..wait a sec..this..he came for me? So does this mean this is my fault? The reason my dad’s over there almost dead…the reason Karin and Yuzu are covered in blood…it’s all…”

-Rukia forgetting her trained instincts to turn her back on a hollow and try once again to comfort him. “Wait! No! I did not mean-”

-Rukia got slammed through cement and a stone wall right under Ichigo’s nose.

-Ichigo’s eyes are mortified. “That’s enough…ALREADY!!”

-Rukia admitting she was careless before being easily careless once again as she jumped to save Ichigo’s life with a terrified look and a “FOOL!”

-Consider seriously how much fucking pain Rukia was put through. She bitten nearly clean in half. The hollow didn’t have sharp teeth, they were flat and her bones were likely crushed. Those type of teeth don’t put clean holes in you, they crush you and the skin on the front and back of your body have to meet, blood vessels have to puncture and burst to draw blood. The holes in her body were surrounded in deep bruises. One side of her body was shattered and she was already previously forced through cement and stone. Her head is ringing, her eyes are bleeding, her breath is lost.

-Ichigo looked haunted at what he saw. Do you consider what he must have heard? The bone crushing, the blood gushing, Rukia gasping because she would never scream…the smells? The metal tinge of blood, the sweat, the busted organs…it’s a 5 sense experience. Remember that, it’s always more than what’s simply drawn.

-”You idiot..what did you think? Either way, you’re an idiot…“

-“I’m sorry–I just..”

“Do not worry is what I would like to say…but…I cannot fight the hollow anymore.” Rukia still gives 0 shits about herself, her only regret is that she can’t fight for this family anymore.

-”Do you want to save your family?”

-”You…become a Shinigami.”


-“If this fails, both you and I, will die together.”

-Rukia witnessing Karin and Yuzu’s love for their big brother and their big brother’s love for them.

-Ichigo’s look of sheer confidence.

-“Give me the sword Shinigami. Let’s give your idea a try.”

-“It is not ‘Shinigami.’ It is ‘Kuchiki Rukia.’“

-“I see… I’m Kurosaki Ichigo. Let’s pray this doesn’t become the last greeting… for the both of us.”

-“Let’s do it…”


-The calm looks, the eye-contact, the smirks, the connection.

-The materialization of Rukia’s soul piercing Ichigo’s. Remember how impossible this is, by technicality. I wish this was expanded upon, how is one soul able to give itself to another. Soul-mates.

-Kurosaki motherfucking Ichigo has been introduced.

Just, it was impossible to create a greater start to a manga or a better relationship in anything.

The story of destiny, the legacy of One Boy and One Shinigami, Bleach has begun.

So early this morning I got an ask and I answered it, was on the fence about posting it, posted it, and then deleted it and answered privately instead. I wanted to take the time to own up to that deletion for those of you who keep your receipts, and to also share what was said, because it plays into the conversation that’s been going around today.

Let me say this, just once more for clarity’s sake: 

Laura and Carmilla are lesbians.

The ask text (username hidden): P1 This is a question of pure curiosity with no disrespect or malicious intent of any kind but since this is tumblr and each fandom has “those bloggers” who are bigger names than everyone else. I’ve seen a lot of people debating on fanfic about Laura (or any of the characters) being written as bi and 9/10 people are against it. And from a curious standpoint of someone who is bi what is your opinion on it? I’m curious as to why for representation sake explicitly straight characters can be lesbian, but explicitly lesbian or gay characters can’t be written as bi? I’m looking at it from a double standard standpoint as a person who is looking for representation in the media that is actually good and not like OITNB or T100. In my opinion it’s pretty backwards that fans of something can want straight characters to be gay, but bi characters can want lesbian characters to be bi. The argument is because their canonly lesbian, but characters are canonly straight but “can be gay in fanfic” ??? 

This is an extremely loaded question. When you’re phrasing question, prefacing with “no malicious intent” is really off putting to the respondent and adding a caveat of “it’s pretty backwards” basically implies that your opinion of me and my response will diminish if I don’t answer in a way that agrees with your idea. So I’ve gone into this under the guise of trying to change your mind:

Think about how many lesbian characters you can name off the top of your head. Now take away any that never self-identify as a lesbian. Now take away any that are “bad representation” for whatever reason. What are you left with? Probably only enough lesbian characters to fill one hand. Maybe two if you’re lucky. Let’s say you can think of ten characters. Ten fingers. 

Laura Hollis is one such lesbian. She is a lesbian who says she’s a lesbian. She is attracted only to women. She is one of the fingers on your hand.

Now, give her a male love interest and say she’s bisexual. It’s all well and good to headcanon as such, but you have to think about the larger implication of doing so. There are so few lesbian characters who say they’re lesbians that exist on popular media. Lesbianism is considered a joke by many straight men, lesbians are expendable, they’re there for the male gaze and to titillate an audience. Their stories are not considered valid. So, in writing about Laura Hollis and her shiny new male love interest, you’ve taken away a finger on your hand.

It’s a false equivalency to say that if you can headcanon a straight character as bi or gay, you should be able to headcanon a gay or lesbian character as bi or straight as well. Bisexual people are starved for good representation. I get it - (shameless plug here that All For One and Inhuman Condition on Ktv have great bisexual representation) - but in drawing that equivalency, you’re committing a passive act of erasure against gays and lesbians everywhere. There are so few gay and lesbian characters out there that are actually gay or actually lesbian. Who say that they’re gay, who own their sexuality and wear it on their sleeve. Who don’t apologize for who they are. To take one of those away is to play into a societal expectation of “oh, the lesbian just needs the right man” or “oh, the right woman will come along for you gay dude.”  

My first reaction to this was to say: “get your own representation; stop taking mine away.”  

For every finger on your hand that is a lesbian character who talks about being a lesbian and owns her sexuality, there are ten thousand straight characters who never talk about their sexuality at all. The reason why we need characters like Laura Hollis is because of this. The reason why a lot of people consider it not okay and unacceptable to take away her self-identified label is because there are only ten of her in the big ocean of hundreds of thousands of fictional characters. The reason why people react poorly to the proposal of making a lesbian character bisexual or even - god forbid - straight is because there are only ten of her out there. She is a precious gem. There are one hundred other ways to headcanon or hell, even find, the bisexual representation you want to see in media, you shouldn’t take it away from other under-represented groups.

We are all starving. We shouldn’t steal from each other when we have the right to ask for more.

Side note: this finger analogy also works for bisexual characters and I could only think of five, and two were from webseries written by a friend. One was a character I wrote. So that should tell you a lot about the lack of understanding of how bisexuality works in the media and what “good representation” means to them. I get why this discussion is happening. There is no easy answer here. The solution is to make EVERYONE QUEER - but if they label themselves, to not take away their label.

anonymous asked:

Someone who likes Yoshimura? A name I haven't often heard in a favorite list. You raise my level of sympathy. :)

I LOVE YOSHIMURA. I already had a kind-hearted lasting impression from the moment he was introduced. Poor Kaneki was left all alone with his fate. Yoshimura took him by the hand, and lifted him up. He was an important father-like figure to him, because he gave him a home and a chance. Yomo, Irimi and Koma… they all possess a deep-set loyalty towards him. Touka was able to live a regular human life, just because he paid for her tuitions. For people like Kaneki and Touka who never had a father in their early years, he was absolute essential and precious. He changed the life of so many TG characters… how could I not love him? He deserves my love. ٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و

You know, one of the toughest time on my Tokyo Ghoul run was reading Chapter 119 and 128. Bury me in Tokyo Ghoul; I can’t remember another Manga story I have cried myself to sleep that often. (ಥ__ಥ) A story that made me want to alternately punch something and hug something. I literally died here: ”[…] did you know? There is a cup stored carefully in the back of the cupboard. It’s a small antique-style coffee cup. I never saw it being used even once. He was definitely waiting. Always.” (Kaneki, Chapter 128) asdfghjkl; Maybe it’s just the romantic in me but I’m fascinated by the fact that love changes us. You are able to leave a positive and lasting impression on anyone you come across. Yoshimura took a change for the better after meeting Ukina. It’s through their relationship that he decided to create Anteiku; he developed his goal to help those in need. Ukina accepted him as he is. Before everything else he closed his heart to anyone he came across and lived the paradox of dying lonely and living in solitude. Their love story ultimately had a tragic end. Oh Ishida, why? Can you stop constantly putting your characters through absolute tragedy? How can you be so gentle towards your readers and fans, but so mean to your precious characters? You know, they also have feelings. 。・゚(゚⊃ω⊂゚)゚・。  Yoshimura loved Eto greatly and did anything to protect her. She was the only person who gave him some sort of hope. He has waited a long time… he always wanted to have a nice conversation with her while watching her drink his coffee. Hopefully Manga Touka found the broken antique-style cup the same way she did in the Root A. *keeps her fingers crossed* I must confess that I was deeply touched by their story. I couldn’t be happier over the fact that Ishida build a whole parallelism around Kaneki and Touka based on these two.

That being said I love the way he was always carefully watching over Kaneki and Touka. He always had that smile “These two… must be nice to be young…” on his face. (๑❛ワ❛๑) If there’s something I have learned from elderly: They certainly know better. My grandma has always been a person worth to love. She always knew there was something going on my mind and I could never figure out how she knew that. The stuff she has said about life, I can understand her point now. She was right. I can answer this, while knowing full well that a young person will not benefit from the answer of an elderly at all. One of the main things I have learned is that each person must learn his own life lessons from their own experience. I had already heard much stuff from my grandma and older folks, but these things did not benefit me until a day came when I suddenly realized their truth for myself. However, I wouldn’t be surprised, if Yoshimura should have seen it coming. “The slowly growing thing” between Kaneki and Touka. ٩( ‘ω’ )و At least this is my own interpretation of Ishida’s art - even including him on an artwork as well. 

If Ishida ever get tired of drawing Mangas, hopefully he will start writing novels. I would love to read them. (*’∀’人)♥

Underwear? Underwear.

Pairing: GrayLu

Rated: T

Summary: The holidays are in full swing, and a certain pair on Team Natsu are requested for a Magnolia Fair. With “Christmas Spirit” in the air, maybe the two will do more than complete the job request. And who knew a pair of underwear could act as a catalyst?  

Authors Note: So, I’m pretty sure I’m the worse Secret Santa alive because this is ten days late and I was given the most precious, sweetest human being to write a gift for. @magerain sweetheart, I cannot tell you how sorry I am that this is so late. But without further adieu, here is your gift, and I can only hope I’ll be able to fully make it up to you someday.

P.S. This is my first time writing GrayLu and my first time writing Canon verse. Hopefully it’s not terribly OOC!

Underwear was quickly becoming a theme in Lucy Heartfilia’s life.

It was the garment she modeled in Sorcerer Weekly photo spreads. It was the clothing item that always seemed to be destroyed, leaving her nude on various missions.  It was one of the first words a certain ice mage had said to her. The infamous greeting of, “Excuse me Miss, can I please borrow your underwear?” never leaving her mind.

Yes, that was correct, underwear was quickly becoming more and more relevant in Lucy’s life.

But she supposed that made sense, being close friends with a man like Gray Fullbuster.

Does Sasuke Care About Sakura (Am I gonna do it? Yes I am.)

My first serious rant. I’ve seen a lot of stuff in the Naruto fandom. Mostly in regard to the pairings. (Yes this rant is about the Naruto pairings.) One thing that has been grating on me is something that I see repeated a whole lot throughout the fanbase from what I have seen:

The statement that SS is an abusive relationship. Or that Sasuke “just doesn’t give a shit.” (I think I should make it clear first that, yes, I am a SasuSaku fan. If you could not already tell lol.)

Having a basic knowledge of abusive relationships I am first and foremost going to say this before I begin: This is a fictional world in which killing a ‘threat’, and other human beings is not as shocking an idea as it would be to you or I in the world we live in. The situations are bizarre, the scenarios are impossible. That being put out of the way I am going to have to acknowledge that just because it’s fictional does not mean that fans will not judge a character and their actions as if they were a real person. Okay fine, in light of that, just this once, I am going down that road and I’m going to look at these two characters as if they were somewhat real to me. (Brace yourselves; this is going to be LONG. My serious rants are LONG.)

Rant Part I.

During the early days of a united Team Seven, Sakura was very bold and unabashed in her pursuit of Sasuke. We see her often make date requests and blatantly compete with her rival, Yamanaka Ino, for his attention. Sasuke being naturally standoffish and temperamental, combined with his trauma-induced depression did not respond warmly to it. That much is to be expected though. (It is not abusive behavior). Mostly the sort of acknowledgement he gave her, in regard to her interest, was mildly irritated and impassive. He was never aggressive or harsh.

Until…ah yes “you’re annoying”. To be honest I fail to see what the big deal of this scene was. His statement was surprisingly mild considering the fact that what Sakura said about Naruto having no family touched a very sensitive nerve for him personally. I don’t find this abusive; in fact it was more like a dose of much needed reality for Sakura. I am not bashing Sakura, it was just obvious that her perception of Naruto at that time was insensitive and poorly thought out. Sasuke’s statement got her to consider this, and endeavor to be nicer to Naruto. (An example of Sasuke bringing out the best in her.) Many would have been much harsher. 

“Practice a jutsu or two; you’re the worst on our squad.” Once again, telling someone to re-prioritize for the better is hardly abusive. You can tell me that he could have been nicer and to a degree I would concur with you but to be frank, Sasuke probably wouldn’t know how to criticize nicely even if he tried. His father wasn’t exactly gentle when it came to his training or progress. He saw that Sakura was being frivolous with her time by asking him out instead of training, so he just said it. That’s how he is. This could be said for many of the things he said to her too. Nothing of what he used to say was ever meant to be destructive, or to tear her down as an individual, or to build himself up. (That is what an abuser does, and that is not what Sasuke was doing.) In fact, there was a time when he was the first to notice that Sakura was in a funk and he built her up the best way he knew how; (i.e. by praising her skills in front of their peers.) Want to know why? It’s because he was a friend regardless of his bastardly personality, and he cared about how she felt. 

The Forest of Death: I should not even have to go over this but I’m going to anyway. Some have said that Sasuke was, in his beastly state, just using Sakura’s injuries as an excuse to rampage on those ninjas. That makes no sense…most especially for one simple but massive crack in the logic.

Why wouldn’t he have just pushed Sakura away and continued his violent spree then? Why did the sight of her tears and sound of her voice begging him to stop calm the beast? Simple, because Sasuke cared about her.   

In the later days of Team Seven, we have seen Sakura mature quite a bit as a character. Sasuke, on the other hand, was becoming more insecure and unhinged about things. We are shown that he is not behaving in a way that is normal for him. (The plate of apples being an example.) This is one thing that I will plainly say was completely uncalled for. In a jealous rage Sasuke knocked the plate of apple slices out of Sakura’s hands. It was the irrational, unkind, lashing out of a child at the end of his rope. But there was so much emphasis on it that I believe it was meant to show just how badly he was spiraling downward to even lash out at Sakura, which he had never done before. Even so, on that hospital roof where he fought with Naruto, Sakura moved to jump between them and both boys (BOTH boys) panicked at the sudden notion of injuring her instead of each other. (Because they BOTH cared…) Sasuke still did not want to hurt her.

Finally we come to one of the most famous SS moments. When Sasuke finally did leave the village, Sakura confronted him. Her feelings for him had grown and she wasn’t willing to just let him go. Sasuke could have easily done a number of things at that moment. He could have said he hated her, he could have knocked her out without giving her a second glance, and he could have kept walking as if she were not even there. What did he do? Sasuke stopped. Sasuke listened. Who knows why for sure, but from this we know that her feelings still had importance if he would take up precious time listening to them.

Not to mention that her feelings must have touched him in some way for him to have thanked her after hearing her out.

My conclusion: Sasuke was not abusive to Sakura. He did care about her. However, he was also a damaged twelve-year-old boy with priorities that had gone askew.

Rant Part II. 

Team Seven is replaced with Team Kakashi. When Naruto and Sakura are briefly reunited with Sasuke he has been in Sound for some time. He fought with all of them as if they were enemies. (Which brings up the regularly stated argument that if SS is abusive, then Sasuke’s relationship with the rest of the team would have to be considered abusive too.) The focus of the meeting was when Sasuke was about to draw his katana on an advancing Sakura and Yamato interfered. Many don’t believe he planned on actually killing her, and maybe he did not, but regardless it does not really matter. Taking Sakura seriously as an opponent and as an enemy shinobi can hardly be considered abusive guys -_-. It is supposed to be obvious that he is purposely severing his bonds to the team and not quite in his right mind.

Also, nobody gives heed to the fact that all enemies present were subjected to Chidori…. except for Sakura. Even as an enemy, he was still more lenient with her.

“He tried to kill her twice!” This is actually very simple. She was an enemy who was trying to kill him first. Both times. Any ninja would have responded the same. There is a difference between abuse and two trained killers attempting to kill one another. This is what happened both times. It is pretty silly to call this abuse to be honest. I can go into both of these scenarios in great detail but bottom line: Sasuke was not being abusive he was being a paranoid, damaged, angry young man who was currently going through a mental breakdown. (I don’t take nervous breakdowns lightly; it has happened to close friends of mine in the past, so it bothers me that I have to parallel it with a fictional scene from a manga, but I did say I was going to talk about them as if they were semi real. Sasuke’s situation resembles a meltdown to me.)

Kishi obviously portrayed Sasuke’s new behavior as a bad thing. He portrayed it as something that had to be changed. In fact, his redemption is clearly a big point in the plot for Naruto and Team Seven, and it is something we all should hope for. Naruto swore that he would save Sasuke, guys come on. A redeemed Sasuke would have never tried to kill his friends and we all know it. The only way Sasuke would ever accept Sakura’s feeling for him at this point would be if he were redeemed in the first place. You really cannot tell me that a redeemed Sasuke would be abusive towards Sakura if he were in a relationship with her. Frankly, that is nonsense.

I don’t think I am going to have to talk about the genjustu he placed her under.

“Stabbing a girl in the heart counts as true love right?” -Insert facepalm- …Okay here we go.

Sasuke never actually stabbed her in the heart first of all. A genjutsu is an illusion, nothing more. He made her experience a dark, unpleasant illusion because he figured that if he did something harsh she would forget about him and hate him along with the rest of the world, as he planned. Even then, he cast on her the illusion of one of the most quick and clean deaths someone living in the Narutoverse could experience. This is really not a big deal; especially considering the genjutsu Itachi put Sasuke through. Does that mean Itachi hates Sasuke and never cared about him???

“Hey everyone! Itachi is an abusive brother!” –Said no one in the fandom ever.

Sasuke is abusive for putting Sakura under a genjutsu. But Itachi kills their entire family, kills their parents before his eyes, leaves Sasuke alive to deal with the grief and consequences all by himself, encourages him to nurture hatred in his heart, and has physically pummeled him before. But the entire fandom stays quiet and acknowledges Itachi as a loving older brother. I don’t hate Itachi, because I understand that the world Kishi wrote these characters in was not a world where life, death, and various moral codes are a perfect match to our own. In Itachi’s perspective; he was doing the best that he could for Sasuke. Everyone accepts this. But if Sasuke casts one genjutsu on Sakura (also believing it to be for the best)… it means he doesn’t give a shit about her… This is bias guys.

There was a time when Sasuke was willing to lay down his life for both Naruto and Sakura. For both of them. If you cannot see that deep down inside, despite his ill-placed state of mind, there is a part of him that still cares about BOTH of them, then you are just being stubborn. Realistically, Sasuke needs a lot of time to sort through his demons, regrets, and learn to overcome all those shadows, but I can’t see him as an abuser. Sasuke cares, and when all is said and done, (i.e. the battle is over, and the dust settles) he is going to accept redemption and the family that is sure to come with it. :)  

 This definitely doesn’t have to convince you that Sasuke is madly in love with Sakura, but the possibility of him having deeper feelings for her is very probable. I don’t expect you to agree, but at least respect the manga facts that have clearly portrayed Sakura as at least someone he cares about. Sorry for boring everyone to death. Back to reality. Have a great day!     

Special thanks to sasusakuwillhappen!!! Follow her!! For she is Queen!

i notice lately that lapidot has been getting hate in the tag, so please to anyone considering throwing their hate in the tag, please consider the following:

visual picture arts (drawings, paintings, etc) are usually a very much face value thing - sure it can be open for interpretation, but a piece of art (unless it’s a comic) is usually only one scene, a snippet in time where nothing exists but that moment and when taken out of context that the artists drew it in, can seem out of character

right now, the lapidot community is largely art-driven - we don’t have a lot of fanfic writers who write in-depth fanfics detailing the journey of what their relationship could be, so when people see art, people are seeing the end-product of what a lot of artists want lapidot to be - that is, a healthy, developed relationship where both parties are content or having fun together

it’s so easy to say ‘they’re so out of character!’ or 'they’ve never interacted!’ in instances like this, because i’ve noticed there’s not a lot of public lapidot relationship analysis - i suspect most of it goes on in private chatrooms or between individuals (i am someone who does this - i’ve been in and out of the intricacies/problems/situations that would arise when shipping lapidot with my friends, but no one ever sees this because it’s not something i (or they) do in public)

so it’s easy to look at the lapidot tag, full of people drawing their end results of what they’ve analyzed to be the end in their mind, and go 'why do you ship that, it’s so out of character you aren’t even considering their personalities!’

but i - and many others ARE, and you don’t see it because you’re not privy to our discussions

our opinions and views change as well - ongoing character development provides material that we are able to apply when picking apart how lapidot would work, and we all enjoy this process

we’ll continue to enjoy shipping lapidot too - to be perfectly honest, it started out as a crack ship, but as the show plays out we’ll only get more material to work with

also, who says -anything- has to be canon for them to be shipped? we’re having fun and enjoying ourselves, do you really have that big an issue with it that you can’t blacklist the tag or just not follow anyone who ships it? we’re not hurting anyone, and we’re definitely not hurting you

apologies if this sounded choppy, but it just really gets my goat when people assume that people who ship lapidot are only doing it because they’re 'ooh so cute together precious babies!’ when it’s so much more than that, and we are embracing and loving every aspect of these two, even the ones that don’t lend themselves to making this ship work because not only do we love lapidot, we love peridot and lapis individually as characters

tl;dr - if you don’t ship lapidot fine, but stop being so salty about it and keep your nasty hate and assumptions out of the tag and leave the shippers alone

It’s time for the weekly mega-post with my feelings about Yuri on Ice, and this time it’s the turn of Episode 4!

Which is Kubo’s favorite, apparently. Will it also be my favorite? Let’s see! Now with extra juicy theories!
