can't break character

anonymous asked:

I think Deran getting the bar would also show Adrian that Deran's actually serious about not being a criminal forever, and he wants that for him, I think finding out about that would be a big step in nudging him back to Deran so I'm really hopeful that it's a good reunion!! Also I'm really scared that when Smurf finds out Deran's a) gay and b) in love with c) someone level-headed that he'll listen to more than her she might try to have him offed :(. Maybe it'll be a killing Pope says no to :O!!

Oh many so many things to answer here so bear with me:

1) I think both have a lot to seriously consider when it comes to ‘reuniting’ because I think that’s contingent on what kind of changes have occurred and I think it’s only been a couple of months since their last exchange by then? I don’t want a reunion because the  biggest detriment to why what they have is that they are unwilling to establish what it is that they have. Also, what are we supposed to do about the years of toxic and denigration that Adrian endured? He was Deran’s emotional punching bag to the point where breaking and entering as well as an occasional punch-fest (I don’t think it’s the first time Deran had beaten Adrian over self-preservation) had made him desensitized almost.

2) Smurf knows. She knows everything about her boys and apart of her fear stems from that. HOW CAN she have a grasp on her son who will never love her the way she expects from all of them? He’s easily the EASIEST to get away from Smurf and the whole Belize incident not only scared Smurf because her ‘baby’ dissapeared for five weeks but it’s because she can ACTUALLY VISUALIZE the permanent loss of his presence.

3) I shall make a longer post on this sometime but Adrian fits into the same category as Julia and Cat. I say that because those two aforementioned have always been a big threat to Smurf’s very existence. They both provided a sense of nurturing that she could never give to her boys. She’s definitely threatened by all three of them because of what they signify and what they can offer to her sons that she CAN NEVER. Validation and love without any perverse stipulation.

4) Pope knows. He so knows. I think the only delusional idiot who doesn’t know is Baz because Baz is a selfish fuck. And he’s self-absorbed and a prick. This seems to be very apt but I believe everyone knows about Adrian and Deran except for Adrian and Deran.

5)And from what we have seen in 2.02, I believe Pope loves his younger brothers that if Smurf propositioned that to him, he would actually SNAP and hurt her rather than any of his brothers. He’s the FIRST one to be colossaly and mentally fucked by Smurf’s parenting and he knows firsthand how else to deal with his brothers. Deep down, he probably loves them more than he will ever love Smurf.


WOOO, that was long!

The problem with a femur breaking instead of any other bone is that he is just so strong that when it breaks and pierces the skin/muscle (creating a scar tissue) he can cut tendons/ligaments/muscles like butter.

What Ryuji probably did though was fixing his bone in place with fixators (a temporary surgery almost necessary for those who break this bone) to provide good stability, but is followed by: another surgery (to correct his deformity) or the fixator is left on until the patient is stable enough (if the final surgery is way too risky).

I believe the pain he feels when he puts too much weight on his thigh is too strong to be only a tissue issue and even if it was he wouldn’t become limp because of a scar tissue (unless it was directly on the knee) it is probably due to a tendon (or other nerve) damage that made his right leg like that. 

A career with sports is impossible for him because of a injury like that but the physical treatment is a way of increasing his limit and reducing the pain (that can get worse if he doesn’t exercise).

Is American English innovating a new “cuteness” marker? I keep thinking of examples like “snek” and “doge”, indicating that the entity in question is “cute” by shifting the vowel forward. But I can’t think of any other examples right now. Something is definitely up. I’M ON TO Y'ALL OUT THERE ON THE INTERNET!

The other day, I was talking to a friend about D Gray Man (because that’s what I do best) and after a little while, it kinda hit me that, if you tell the story as it is, it isn’t a happy story.

I mean, sure we joke about how sad and tragic the story is, and it is true. But yet, if we read the story, we also know there’s a lot of light hearted  moments, really fun parts and overral, always a good feeling to it. 

Yet in a way those elements seems a bit absent if you focus on telling the story straight forward with just the events that happen. It seems unreal that there’s actually as much light hearted moments when you hear some of the basics dilema and storylines. 

So I was kind of thinking about what was making the light moments work, why, even by being hit by the tragic of the situations, we have such a good feeling reading this manga, why the tragedy doesn’t wear us off. 

And in the end it all comes down to the characters who are extremely self aware of the tragedy around them and decided to hold on together still. 

The comedy, the good moments, they come from when the characters just focus on each others, to care about one another. In the end, that’s the scene where Lavi, Lenalee,Allen and Chaoji discuss of what they’re going to do when they’re in the Ark that describe it the best. They refuse to give up to the tragedy and they’re going to still laugh about it, still going to care about one another. 

And in a way it is so positive and heartwarming. In a way it’s where dgm truly works - without shying away from the drama, it gives us a lot of safe moments in the manga in order to rest, to recover with our characters, and all is due to the bonds they all create together. 

It’s always amazing to appreciate.

AU where Juno ended up becoming a professional boxer instead of a private eye?

Oh, good. An excuse for me to associate this song with Juno directly!

In all seriousness, though, I don’t actually know the first thing about boxing, aside from things that are true for most martial arts. I haven’t even seen Rocky.

Who would you say is the best character from tmnt? Not your favourite, but the best characterised and developed one?

hhhhhhhhhh….. yeah okay. that’s a hard one, because following season 2 a shit ton of characters lost any sort of development or their redeeming qualities, and that leaves us with… a pretty small pool of characters who are still worth shit.

i’d like to say april, honestly. because she went from a girl next door type character, to a stone cold badass type character (when they’re not pushing weird het-romance moments on her or writing her as a weakling).

like, she started out roughly three years ago in canon with zero training and zero experience with anything dangerous. in those three years she’s become the most powerful member of her team, even if the writers fail to write her as such very frequently. i mean, she’s literally a weapon of mass destruction. was made for war and conquest. with the training and dangers she’s faced, she went from an ordinary high school girl to a entity of pure power in a very, very short amount of time.

the boys had their whole lives to train to be ninjas, have the advantage of mutant strength and endurance, and april managed to catch up incredibly fast to their level. surpassed their level, even. she can beat them all with both hands tied behind her back when she really lets go.

her personality shift from eager and somewhat naive, to determined and fairly volatile, has been an interesting one to watch. she’s not a nice person anymore. she’s a good person, but not a nice one. the pros and cons of showing mercy in a fight are hard ones to deal with, and more often than not april chooses to do what she has to in order to keep her family safe. i like that about her character, the effect of loss and tragedy turning april into a relatively angry character who’s quick to strike out. is this a sign of good mental health? probably not, but it’s really, really neat to see in a female character.

while the writers whom i hate with a fiery passion don’t understand the gem of a character they’ve developed, i do, and i think 2012′s april has to be my favorite for all the reasons above, as well as the best/most developed character out of the whole cast.

NTAMW takes his children to disneyland/world and hits on the princesses and says inappropriate things to them, knowing they can't break character. Women who have worked as disney princesses say this happens a lot, and apparently Pocahontas gets the worst of it.

Ughhh

I feel like I should do a post about how I pass from hating Sakura with every inch of my body to love the way she looks like being with Kakashi and how her future could have been if she didn’t stay with Sasuke but true is I actually don’t know how happen and I believe it’s pretty obvious that KakaSaku is such a better relationship than SasuSaku bc KakasHI DIDN’T FUCKING TRY TO KILL HER TWICE AND DIDN’T CALL HER USELESS EVERY TIME HE COULD AND FUCKING DIDN’T FELL IN LOVE WITH NARUTO CUZ JESUS CHRIST I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE DON’T NOTICE HOW SICK IS SASUKE’S AND SAKURA’S MARRIAGE. I MEAN, C'MON, YOU JUST CAN’T

like also its def not just brown men. People look at women of color as useful if you want a misogynistic ~traditional~ relationship but incapable of being fully realized quirky human beings, so if you think of yourself as a modern like. Smart sensitive socially progressive guy or girl, suddenly only yt women are good enough because they have like. brains and personality and are the only people that could get you, man.

Of course there’s a caveat for white men and women where they will date women of color to bolster their idea of what a good and worldly person they are, as long as the women in question never lets the illusion of just being a more tan woman with maybe some “tasteful” boho style drop

but none of these result in anyone actually understanding women of color as anything but a monolith of the viewers own collection of insecurities and stereotypes and its kind of suffocating
