Art Abroad

It’s a wonderful time to be an art student right now. Or an art appreciator, or just a regular person because the world of art is alive and abundant right now, brimming with bravery and brilliance. With some of the most retrospective exhibitions across the globe gracing the walls (and sometimes the floors, ceilings and windows) from Australia to America, there’s never been a better time to embrace art wherever you are, whatever you’re into. Here’s Lucca’s museum guide to getting inspired.

Fairy Tail Chapter 420 Reaction

Look at that! You all laughed at me when I said that Wendy was going to join Lamia Scale!  Now who’s laughing! 

Some points I wanted to talk about (Feel free to delete the comments)

  • I know some people are disappointed in gru.via not being there but I for one am glad. Juvia and I guess gray too needs a dynamic entrance! Not just simply being there at lamia scale! 
  • I’m sad I didn’t get to see any Re.rry. I feel like I’m the only person who ships them.
  • Can we please make Lyon a meme? Every time your favorite character embarrasses themselves, we need to have Lyon there to drag them off.
  • HUMAN CARLA!?!?!?!This is unholy!!!!!! Up is down, down is up, left is right, and right is nonexistent in this messed up world.

Right so, after a whole lot of research (and writing this post THREE times due to the fact Google Drive is being stupid and crashed twice on me), I’ve finally got the meaning of most of the symbols. 

Quick warning now though, the center symbol that looks like this ♀ kinda spiraled into my own theory that may or not really pertain to this? Eh going to mention it anyways. 

So here we go:

This was actually super hard to find, however its clear here that the bottom symbol means to “warn off evil spirits” which makes sense, and I also read somewhere that the “medicine man’s eye” could represent Bill due to his lack of a second eye, therefore put together its a sign warding off Bill. 

Then theres that symbol near the upper circle that most likely represents altocumulus, which is a type of cloud. 

Altocumulus is also commonly found between the warm and cold fronts in a depression, although this is often hidden by lower clouds. Towering altocumulus, known as altocumulus castellanus, frequently signals the development of thunderstorms later in the day, as it shows instability and convection in the middle levels of the troposphere, the area where towering cumulus clouds can turn into cumulonimbus.

(Found on wikipedia). 

The most interesting thing I find about this is the fact altocumulus clouds are often hidden behind lower clouds and bring storms, and Stan is a con man who hid his secrets behind his tourist trap, but when he’s plan was complete a “storm” came. 

The hardest thing to find was the ♀ symbol. 

I knew Venus was the Roman name for one of the Greek gods, and I was hoping it would be like a god of strength or war. 

For those of you who don’t know, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty, feminism, and basically everything Stan is not. I tried to find some alternatives to this, however I could not find anything that was remotely similar to the picture at the very top. So I figured maybe the symbol represents someone Stan loved at one point, which brings me to the Carla Gleeful theory.

So in case your confuzzled, Carla was once Stan’s girlfriend before she dumped him for a hippie. After that Stan says his memory gets “hallucinationy”. Then in “The Hand That Rocks The Mabel”, we see this:

This was seen in Gideon’s commercial for his tent of telepathy, a commercial that was narrated by Bud Gleeful. But wait, Bud already has a wife right?

This poor woman?

According to the theory, Bud was too cowardly to tell Carla that he loved her, so instead he brainwashed her to believe that she was her girlfriend so that he wouldn’t have to. This is possible because we know Bud was apart of the blind eye society and because of this:

(Also going to point out, Pacifica’s memories are there too). 

Of course there are some physical differences:

The most disappoint thing to me being the difference in jawline. However in “Blendin’s Game” we also see this:

A happy rounded jawed Mrs. Gleeful. 

My guess is that Carla was pretty happy with Bud, until he started using the brainwashing wayyyy to much on her and she became the paranoid person we see today. 

Anyways, going back to the tattoo, maybe the ♀ is another sign we’re going to a see a reappearance of Carla? In “The Hand That Rocks Mabel”, at the end of the episode the code reads “Carla, why won’t you call me?”. Maybe we’re going to see her again in future episodes?


I realize theres probably a whole list of things we should be worried about OTHER than this, for example:

- Aftermath of the portal

- Whether or not Gideon escaped jail during the destruction

- How Bill will react to the return of the author

- Dipper’s relationship with Stanford

- Dipper’s relationship with Stanley

- Dipper’s relationship with Mabel

(As you can see I’m very worried about Dipper xD). 

However, I thought this was pretty cool nonetheless and if I’m correct and Carla DOES have something to do with that tattoo, (though its more likely that these are just two different theories based on the evidence), the fact that she, bill and a symbol that means “wards away evil” is what Stan has chosen to be his tattoo is pretty interesting and I’m really excited to see how this all plays out.

my-favorite-character-is-lucifer You know what kind of sucks? If we do get a gruvia kiss, people will just say it’s from pity. But I don’t even care, I need that kiss.

Side note: I disagree with people who says that if Juvia accept Gray back in open arms then that makes Juvia weak. I don’t like that, that needs to stop.

Fun fact: I got the lines from Fairy Tail english dubbed to try parallel the phantom arc.
