character: the girl who was lost in time

Berserk and Amon

Since :Re began (and even earlier, really), it feels like Ishida is making intentional references to the manga “Berserk” within Amon’s story arc. The most obvious evidence of all actually begins with Seidou… 

Now, this gross meat pile isn’t only a meat pile. It looks really similar to the Behelit from Berserk.

Though Ishida could’ve simply been going for a horror element here, the meat that Amon was originally given to eat had no faces. It was just a pile of human meat that was successfully presented as horrifying without further visual impact. Furthermore, the Crimson Behelit offers the chance for one of Berserk’s main characters to leave his humanity behind in exchange for his flesh, blood, and family…and Seidou changed after consuming the meat he was given (implied to be the meat of his family members). The Behelit is active when its eyes are open, too, so it seems like this reference was probably intentional. 

Of course, just one reference isn’t enough to build a theory off of. Fortunately, there are more! The gross meat pile makes its return in the latest chapter…

Though it no longer has the characteristic egg-shape. It is however, something that haunts Amon. It also looks like something that haunts Guts, a character with a lot of eery similarities to Amon.

The disgusting demon baby that follows Guts and Caska around is representative of his trauma, his guilt, and his fears. It isn’t harmful by itself and, at times, is actually helpful. This is well in-line with what human meat represents to Amon.

The demon baby is eventually consumed by a Behelit and is used to “change the world”, as per the wish of an (explicitly reference to be) empty man. Considering the context this image was brought up in, and keeping in mind Amon’s desire to change the world, it seems that this reference is intentional. 

Still, more evidence is required before people can really start drawing parallels between Guts’ arc in Berserk and Amon’s in Tokyo Ghoul. Luckily for me, people have been speculating about their similarities for quite some time and so panels are easy to find. 

1. 
Both characters wield a frankly ridiculously huge weapon that they inherited from a friend. The weapon requires a massive amount of strength to use and is unique to them. 

2. 
They both lost an arm. 

3. 
The Arata armour looks almost exactly like Guts’ armour. Both sets of armour are taxing for their user to operate, but were necessary to fight enemies much stronger than themselves.

4. 
They both wind up having the aesthetic of a “Dark Knight”. As a “knight”, they wind up saving young girls who later return the favour and help bring them down from a monstrous take-over by their armour without killing them. 

(Amon rescues Saiko in full armour, ffs)

5.
Suffered a massive betrayal at the hands of a father figure. Killed many people for said father-figure (as children!!!!) and developed an obsession with perpetuating this cycle. Also: both orphans.

6. 
A cross to bear ie. Amon’s cross and Guts’ mark (both on their necks, both meant to never let them escape from their past, both with massive religious connotations) 

7. 
Their whole look. The entire thing. Half-ghoul Amon looks so much like Guts.

There’s also the “near constant state of hatred towards a world they perceive as wrong” thing and the “fail to learn from their mistakes” thing and the “is basically no longer human” thing alongside the “awkward beautiful man who doesn’t know how to deal with women” thing. 

TLDR: Guts and Amon share a lot of characteristics and this latest chapter brought it up again so I couldn’t help but make a compilation post. 

Theory on Y/N and Peter Pan

Whenever I want to read some Peter Pan imagines, I always end up disappointed because people tend to write Y/N as this innocent, naive, damsel in distress and sweet girl and that gets…on my….. nERVES. I am honestly so tired of this.

I don’t think that’s the kinda girl Peter would go for. Like, at all. Not that nice girls aren’t good characters. All in all, I just think this persona doesn’t fit in this particular situation.

Just imagine that:

- Y/N attacking Pan the first time she runs into him, because that’s the logic fucking reaction when you wake up in an unknown place and meet a creepy stranger who wiggles his eyebrows.

- Y/N not caring not having girl stuff on Neverland, or even privacy because when you’re in a tough situation you gotta toughen up, and survival tops comfort

- Y/N NOT playing the ‘mom’ with the Lost Boys, or cooking, or singing the boys to sleep for the sole reason that she is the only girl, bc that promotes gender roles and it goes against everything we girls fight for, DUH

- Y/N learning how to fight (good) and not stopping to annoy Felix and Pan until she gets private lessons, and accepting beng beaten to a pulp if that helps her improve and become able to take care of herself because depending on the boys to survive is humiliating for her and burdening for them.

- Y/N being confident and not taking the boys or Pan’s shit and talking back when they are rude.

- Y/N always not-so-gently reminding the boys (including Pan) that they ain’t a bunch of animals and they gotta behave and use their brains instead of their hands

- Y/N winning Peter’s respect BEFORE winning his heart, because she can stand up for herself and put him back in his place when he crosses a line or orders her around, and that’s what a healthy, long lasting relationhip is built on: respect. Repeat after me: R.E.S.P.E.C.T

- Y/N not blushing, or stuttering, or looking down. Y/N grinning and flirting and playfully teasing Peter whenever she gets the occasion just bc she can and it makes him lose his composure bc damn nobody else ever did this

- Y/N being a fucking badass who can kick ass and be feminine and be Peter’s equal because that’s the only kind of girl I can picture him with: someone who’s on the same level as him (maybe not on magical terms bc he’s too pwerful) but in spirit

Why y’all turning Peter into this beautiful lil cinnamon roll that he obviously isn’t? Stop writing Peter as a bad guy who becomes nice for Y/N’s lovely eyes. Write about a badass, murderous, dark minded Y/N. Write about a hot couple of villains who defeat the heroes for once. Dammit.


Honestly, give me an OC like that and I will read the shit outta it.

Until then, I’m just gonna have to write some myself.

Urianna Thalassa Hook

Urianna Thalassa Hook - daughter of Uma and Harry Hook.

+ When Uma was pregnant, she distanced herself from Harry. They could be best friends, captain and first mate, but that was different. Raise a child in the Isle of the Lost wasn’t easy. A lot of babies died, and the ones who lived had to survive their abusive parents and the terrible conditions of the isle.

+ Uma tried to hide her pregnancy for a long time. From her mother, her crew and Harry. But someone knew that something was wrong.

+ Gil.

+ He wasn’t the smartest guy on the isle, but he knew that something was wrong with his captain. One day, when Harry was off with the rest of the crew and Gil was on a timeout again, he entered the chip shop and found Uma cleaning the tables. She looked at him and rolled her eyes.

“I already told you that you can’t come back yet.”

“Uma what’s wrong?”

“What are you talking about?”

“I noticed that you’re avoiding Harry… And I know that I said the wrong thing again and that you’re mad at me and I’m sorry for it, but I wanna help you. You can trust me.” - he said firmly and noticed that her body shook - “Uma?”

“I can’t take it anymore Gil…” - her voice was weak and he knew she was about to cry, so he pulled her into a hug and he felt her burry her head on his neck.

“It’s your mother again? Did she hurt you?” - he asked and felt Uma shook her head.

“Promise you won’t judge me.”

“Of course I won’t.” - she breathes and says:

“I’m pregnant.”

+ Gil looked at her before hug her stronger. Uma liked how sensitive Gil was, and she definetly loved when he hugged her, she needed comfort.

“It’s Harry’s child?” - she nodded - “You need to tell him, Uma, he deserves to know. He’s going crazy cause you’re avoiding him, you’re the one who keeps him sane.”

“He won’t want the baby, Gil. We live in the middle of trash and danger, who would want to raise a child under these conditions?”

“Uma, look at me.” - he took her hands and looked deep in her eyes - “I know I’m not that smart, but I know that Harry loves you, everybody knows. He would die for you if he had to and I’m pretty sure he will stay by your side. And you won’t be able to hide this forever, he knows something is wrong.”

“But, what if he gets angry? What if he leaves us?” - she pointed to herself, pressing her hands in her belly.

“I’ll stil be right here, with both of you. And trust me, seeing how you care about the kids who need protection, I can tell you’re gonna be an amazing mother.”

+ Uma’s eyes tear up and she smiles, which makes Gil smile too. He finally said something right.

“You’re not in timeout anymore.” - he laughs and so does she - “And Gil…” - he looks at her - “Thank you.” - he kisses her forehead and leaves.

+ Later, when all the crew are sleeping, she tells Harry that they need to talk. He only nodds, his eyes look tired and his hair is a mess.

“I have to be straight with you. You’re probably gonna hate me, but I can’t hide anymore.” - Uma hates how vulnerable she sounds, but she’s with Harry, so she can sound vulnerable. 

“What is it love?” - he looks at her, only to found her looking at the floor.

“I’m pregnant.”

+ That changes everything. Harry loved Uma deeply. But he wasn’t expecting be a father. Uma sounds nervous, vulnerable, tired. He doesn’t know what to say, and he sees that Uma is ready to leave, but he stops her.

“Sorry, I’m just… I wasn’t expecting this.” 

“That makes two of us.” - she snorts - “I’m not ready to… Well, I don’t know. What do we know about raising a child anyways?! Our parents only hurt us. This isle is a prision, our lifes are nightmares and we’re gonna do an innocent person suffer just like they did to us, we just ruined someone’s life.”

“No. We won’t. I’m not my father, and you’re not your mother. You saved a lot of kids who were starving, sick or homeless. We’re gonna do this, and this child, our child, will have the best we can get here. We’ve been throught a lot together, we’re gonna do this, and we’re gonna do our best.” - Harry loved how a big smile appeared on Uma’s face making him smile too. He cupped her face and pulled her into a kiss, different from all the others that they shared before - “I love you, Uma.”

“Love you too.” - she whispered instantly.

+ The time passed and the baby was born. It was a girl, a little, healthy, beautiful and innocent girl. Uma couldn’t explain how she felt when she held her daughter for the first time and looked at her. She felt tears in her eyes, she smiled and stroked her face, gently. She was perfect. Uma felt something warm her heart as the baby touched her hand.

+ Harry was speechless. A little girl. He looked at Uma, seeing how happy she looked. He never saw a smile so bright on Uma’s face, and on his own. She looked like Uma. The skin, the eyes, and later, he would discover, the smile

+ They decided to call her Urianna. Her middle name, Thalassa, refered to the sea. And it seemed perfect for her.

+ Gil was in love with their Urianna since Uma appeared at the ship with her on her arms. She was so cute and small, and he almost cried when they asked him to be her godfather. He immediately said yes.

+ Uma is a very protective mother. You better don’t mess with Urianna cause you’re gonna regret it. With Harry is not better. If you mess with his little girl, Gil and him will come after you with the rest of the crew.

+ Uma and Harry started to be more happy, gentle and patient. Urianna changed them at the moment she looked at them with that innocent eyes.

+ Her first word was “mama”. Uma still throws that on Harry’s face. She’s still herself after all. Uma was so, so proud of her baby girl.

+ But her first steps were at his direction. He was so proud of her (and himself). 

+ One thing that surprises everyone is that Urianna never stops smiling. Her laugh is something that they could pass the day hearing without getting tired.

+ They hug and kiss her all the time, telling how much they love her. That they will never let anything hurt her and that they’ll always be together, no matter what. 

+ Once, when Urianna had a fever, Harry was visiting Harriet when Gil came and told him about it. He forgot to catch his hook, and didn’t remember untill she got better, after two days

+ She’s the most important thing for him now. Screw the hook.

+ Harry, Uma and Urianna sleep together in Uma’s bed at the ship.

+ Gil loves to paint Urianna’s face just like he does with his own. And she loves too. They both laugh a lot, while Harry and Uma roll their eyes. After all, they have two kids.

+ Urianna loves Gil - or, Uncle Gil. He carries her on his shoulders, and plays with her when Uma is working and Harry is not there.

+ Harriet visited them and she fell in love with her niece. Looks like her brother finally did something right.

+ Captain Hook and Ursula know about Urianna, but who said that Uma and Harry are ever going to take her to meet them. They could never see someone hurt her.

+ She’s been homeschooled. They don’t want nothing to ruin how happy, innocent and full of joy she is. Even that they live in a dirty isle, she’s not gonna be corrupted by the evil in there.

+ Uma taught Harry how to count (the basic) and helped Gil to read better, so she’s a good teacher.

+ But no only that. They already started giving her self-defense lessons (not with swords, of course), but she’s going to learn all that they know.

+ She taught Urianna how to swim too. Urianna loves the ocean, and, just like Uma, she breathes under the water.

+ One day, Mal, Evie, Ben, Jay and Carlos appear. They heard things about Urianna, but didn’t know it was Uma and Harry’s daughter, so, they ask her if they can talk to them.

+ Urianna is very confused, because: “Who are they, mommy?”

+ Gil keeps playing with her while they talk, and Ben invites her, Harry, Gil and Urianna to Auradon. He couldn’t help being really suprised when both Uma and Harry say “yes” at the same time without hesitate. 

+ Urianna would finally live in a better place, a safe place. She would go to a school where she would learn normal things, she would have toys, a better food, a better bed, a better life. They were giving the chance she deserved and Uma wouldn’t take that from her, even that she still has her issues with them.

+ BUT, she hadn’t forgot about all the other kids and the rest of the crew. She will fight for their rights as equal she did for Urianna’s.

+ Urianna’s face bright up when she sees Auradon for the first time and Harry hugs his girls (and so does Gil).

+ Fairy Godmother is, at first, impressed with how sweet the little girl was, and instantly falls in love with Urianna.

+ Just like everyone who meets her. Even Chad.

+ The rotten four were surprised to see how caring Harry and Uma are with their daughter.

+ When she starts school, she knows how to read and count perfectly

+ It’s impossible don’t love Urianna. But as Harry told Uma once: how was possible that some people hurt someone so innocent and joyful? That’s cruelty.

+ Uma, Harry, Gil and Urianna are one of the most caring families that you can meet. 

+ Every single thing that Harry and Uma do, they do thinking about her. She’s their lives.

Hello Tumblr. My name is Alex. I identify as FTM Transgender and I survived EX gay conversion therapy. I’m here to tell my story- A while back in 2011 for my 11th grade year of high school, my mother sent me to a Christian private school called Calvary Chapel. That was bad enough on its own with the constant states and remarks, being accused and disciplined for acts I didn’t do, and rebelling against the uniform code to wear pants instead of a skirt. Calvary Chapel was a bad enough place on its own but I also soon came to find out they held ex gay conversion therapy there courtesy of Exodus International, a cult which luckily closed its doors a couple years back because the main man admitted he still likes dudes. Let me put it out there that I like women and was out as lesbian at the time, but secretly I identified as Trans because If I had come out as Trans to my family I would probably be DEAD. So my mother literally tricks me, tells me we’re going out to eat and then instead takes me to my school. I knew what was up so I started to run. She chased after me grabbed me, held me down and dragged me into the conference room, and said “you better change your disgusting sinner ways” and left me there with this older blonde woman staring at me. I had no idea what the hell was happening so I said “where am I!?” The women said “you’re going to be converted to being straight by me, your mentor. Your mother thought it would be best to put you in gay conversion therapy” immediately I rose up and screamed “I was FORCED to go here you can’t make me!” The women said “your parents have every right to bring you here and there is no law stating they can’t they’re doing what’s best for you and your soul.” By that time I was about freaked out and ready to go, but instead I broke down crying my eyes out for the rest of the session basically staying silent otherwise. Future appointments consisted of me going straight to therapy after Christian school. Hiding my face incase anyone knew where I was going. Therapy was starting to shame me. Normal every day therapy would be starting out reading a verse from the bible, reciting it three times and asking God for my forgiveness. Then we would go over my conversion homework (which I will get into later), then she would make me lay down on a table while she prayed over me. She would ask me things like “have you had any lesbian urges?” “What do you think God thinks of those?” “What will happen if you act on those urges?” Afterwards she would sit me down in front of a computer and make me watch some type of hypnotism therapy. Daily, it was over and over “you will go to hell if you are gay” “why would you want to live the gay lifestyle” it also literally looked like hypnotism on the screen, not only that but the women would hypnotize me herself, which is partially why I’m having trouble recollecting my memories of this. A lot of it I blacked out during. Onto the homework. The homework consisted of huge pamphlets that I would have to read every day. All of stories of gay people who fell to their sin, or people who successfully “became straight”. After every story I would have to answer a page of questions such as, “what should John have done to control his homosexual urges” and “what would you have done in his situation” “WHY is homosexuality a sin and what will happen if you act on it” being as scared as I was at the time it actually started getting to me. For a while I rebelled and wrote “nothing nothing nothing” or “homosexuality isn’t a sin” but eventually I became afraid, the “therapy” started “working” and I wrote things like “I will go hell” “that character died and became a drug addict because they were gay” “that character went to college and got married because they were straight” and so on. One time I asked the woman who was counseling me, “have you ever been gay?” She gave me a long look and said, “never tell anyone.” “I used to be a lesbian but now I’m married.” I said, “have you ever even kissed a girl?” She said “no”. Right then she lost credibility to me that and it was sad. After every session she would make me read from the bible the verse where it says something like “nor the murderers, adulterers, or homosexuals, ect will enter the kingdom of heaven.” Don’t you like my word for word quote? Lol But seriously halfway through the year I hauled my ass out of there and stopped going because it started to have effects on me negatively. I became more suicidal, and the effects still last on me to this day. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night crying to my girlfriend asking her if I’m going to go to hell. I’m tied down by religion because I’m afraid of going to hell. This stuff did some serious damage to me, and although it might not be as bad as some of the stories out there I wanted to give people a look into what leelah alcorns life may have been like. When I heard of her passing I thought “that was me”. That’s why I want to put an end to conversion therapy! I need leelahs law to be passed! Please share my story. I want as many people to know the horrors and dangers of conversion therapy as possible.

PLEASE GO SPREAD MY RECENT SUICIDE POST!

ginny weasley was tormented by possession and fear of her own capabilities at such a young age, and was still a girl of amazing strength and character who never let anyone tell her what to do or who to be, and still made full hearted decisions about fighting every chance she got. and when she lost a brother in the battle of hogwarts, she found it in her heart to comfort a girl who lost her mom so remember how courageous and ready to rule the world she is next time you hate on her for your pretentious bullshit reasons

We don’t believe what’s on TV - chapter 1

Chapter 2 / Chapter 3 / Chapter 4 / Chapter 5 / Chapter 6 / Chapter 7 / Chapter 8 / Chapter 9 / Chapter 10…>>

Resume: I had an ordinary life, or that’s what I wanted to believe. I lost myself in the TV series that I listened to forget the normal boring life. What I didn’t know, however, was that my life would change completely overnight.

Finding myself in 2013 at Beacon Hills County.

A / N: I have this idea of ​​history for a very long time, but I always hesitated to write it because with all the ideas I have it will be very long. This is also the idea of prologue 1 on my ideas list.

(Y/T) = Your town


I was a very normal person, or at least I was doing my best to be. I had good grades, a few friends, family. One little detail differentiated me from others; it was my passion for TV series. More precisely, one with werewolves, which I had listened on numerous occasions. This series had no secret for me, especially a character who was also the focus of my Tumblr blog.

I was a normal girl, and it was a normal day when it happened. I was walking to school, listening to my music, as usual when the wind rose, causing my hair to ruffle. I lifted my head and pulled out my headphones. The sky seemed strange to me; it was dark, greyish and green in some places.

One moment I was on the street to walk to my school in broad daylight and the next I was in the middle of a forest, at night, lost. I blinked several times by rubbing my eyes and looked around me, stress increasing every second. How did I get here? Where was here? Why a forest? Since when was it night?

I took my phone so I could call someone who could help me, but no network was detected. I swallowed, tears forming at the corners of my eyes. I was lost, I didn’t remember anything, I was cold and I was afraid. I started to run without looking where I went, receiving lacerations in the face and arms because of the branches. My school bag struck my back at each stride. But I didn’t care, I wanted to go home, see my family and wake up. The panic had totally taken control over my body.

Suddenly my foot met a branch, turned into a weird angle and I fell to the ground shouting in pain. I had just trampled my ankle and when I fell in the mud I also hurt my wrist. I stood a moment on the ground, my ankle between my hands, crying with short, wheezing breath.

I had to wake up, it was only a nightmare… or I was doing serious somnambulism with memory loss…

A light dimly illuminated the leaves and branches and I raised my head. That meant only one thing, the road was not far and cars still covered it at this hour.

I didn’t stay a second longer on the cold ground, wiped the tears with my hands full of mud, probably dirtying my face in the same time and then got up. I limped as fast as I could towards the source of light, grimacing with pain at every step. I had to reach the road!

Finally I came out of the forest in a cry of relief and slumped on my knees on the asphalt. I picked up my breath again, panting with panic. Then a new and stronger light came closer to me. A car!!

I arose with difficulty, resting on my unbroken leg to make big gestures with my arms to the car which stopped on the side of the road. I limped sobbing with relief at the generous person who had been kind enough to stop for me. I was so panic-stricken that I didn’t notice what sort of car was or who came out. I just rushed into his arms and thanked him for stopping.

“Are you all right, kiddo?”

I continued to sob without replying. The man patted my back and made me step back in anticipation of an answer. As for me, I looked at the ground again, weeping. Then, my eyes slowly climbed onto the vehicle to our left and a sob remained stuck in my throat.

Sheriff, Beacon County.

The one and only place where I had read this inscription on a car was on TV, on the DVDs I had bought. It was impossible that a car like that, a police car, was here, in (Y / T)…

“Hey, kiddo, what happened to you? Where are your parents? ”

The voice made me froze even more. How couldn’t I recognize it? My eyes widened as I slowly raised my head to look at my savior.

In the darkness of night I couldn’t distinguish much, but I recognized the uniform too well. The name on the badge.

I had to be sure even if I already knew the answer.

I raised my head to look at his face and my head emptied abruptly.

It was impossible.

“Sheriff Stilinski?” I muttered very low, my voice hoarse and weak. My head turned more and more and I felt the ground begin to move under my feet. Then, my vision came to a thick mist as the sheriff nodded, looking worried.

Impossible…

I saw the world turn then, the complete black.

Top 10 anime guys

Thank you @lexinthymia for tagging me again! I wanted to limit this to one character per series; it was hard but here we are! Also, I will admit that some of these choices are not only based on the anime these character were in, but also what happened to them later on the manga (if the anime stopped at a certain point). I probably went into more detail about each of these guys then I needed to and their will be some spoilers for certain series, but I love talking about them!

Honourable mention who didn’t make it on to the list: Kaneki Ken (Tokyo Ghoul), D (Vampire Hunter D), Karou Hitachiin and Tameki Suoh (Ouran Highschool Host Club), Germany (Hetalia), Ling Yao (Fullmetal Alchemist), and a whole smattering of characters from BLEACH.

10. Kiyosama ‘Crow’ Senji - Deadman Wonderland

Originally posted by kaizoku-niiichan

Senji’s the biggest badass in the whole series and had some of the best fights. I love his character arc and how he basically become an older brother-figure to Ganta; their friendship has become on of my favourite BROTPs ever. It also helps that he’s voiced by Patrick Seitz, one of my favourite voice actor of all time.

9. Vash the Stampede - Trigun

Originally posted by kaworubunga-surfs-up-shinji-kun

There are very few characters that can be badass one minute and an absolute goofball the next without it feeling jarring to me. Vash is one of these few, and he’s brilliant because of it. All of his actions, whether they’re serious or comedic, make sense to his character - his mystery and loneliness is as much a part of him as his eccentricities and obsession with donuts. And he has a awesome character design to boot!

8. Johan Liebert - Monster

Originally posted by yuzuqi

Johan is such a masterfully crafted character, to the point where you can feel his presence even when he is off panel/screen. He’s present in everyone of the character actions, the puppet master behind the scenes. There’s also his intriguing relationship with his twin Nina, which brings out the very few sympathetic parts of him. He’s low on the list because I haven’t  finished either the anime or manga yet, and while I definitely don’t ‘love’ him in any sense, but he’s somehow both captivating and distrubing all at once. I can’t wait to see how his character unfolds.

7. Edward Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist

Originally posted by paperlittlegirl

I had a hard time choosing between Edward and Ling Yao, but in the end I chose Ed because of how much development he went through. He’s inspiring in a lot of ways, with his steadfast determination and his relateable moral dilemmas, and he’s also one of the few characters that can be badass one minute and an absolute dork the next without it be jarring or taking away from his character. The bonds he shares with everyone only made me like him even more likeable and relateable, especially his relationships with Al, Winry, and Ling.

6. Levi Ackerman - Shingeki no Kyojin 

Originally posted by immanime

Levi has been through so much tradegy and loss. I can’t get over his past as a child (the fact he stayed by his mother’s bedside to the point where he tarved himself and was wearing her shirt, it makes me tear up every time) and with Farlan and Isabel (the emotions he diplayed after their deaths…oh God). His more recent development in the manga was amazing to see: he smiled at his comrades, learned more about his past, and the explosive rage he showed when he lost one of the dearest people to him had me in shock and awe. Also, the animation they put on this guy in both seaons is jaw-dropping a lot of the time.

5. Shigeo ‘Mob’ Kageyama - Mob Psycho 100

Originally posted by anime-angel-lover

My second son! Mob is the heart and soul of this anime: he’s such a kind, likeable, and gentle character who only wants to fit in, make friends, and get the attention of the girl he likes. What I love most about Mob is his will to better himself whichever way he can and the hard work he’s willing to put into that goal. He doesn’t rely on his psychic powers to make friends, but as a result of not fully embracing that part of himself and fearing his own abilities, he haa emotionally hindered himself; it makes him incredibly sympathetic to me (I cried with him when he unintentionally tore the school apart and I cheered when he was reunited with Ritsu).

4. Ayame Sohma - Fruits Basket

Originally posted by fewtruevillains

This man and his glorious antics. Oh, Ayame…we go back a long way. Everything about this guy is just hilarious: his past as the student council president, his spontaneous displays of affect and drama, and his innuendos with Shigure. He never fails to put a smile on my face whenever he’s on screen! However, his serious moments are great too: they added a lot to him and I was 100% invested in his character arc and development (i.e. trying to reconcil with his actions made in the past and reconnect with his younger brother Yuki).

3. Makoto Sunakawa - Ore Monogatari!!

Originally posted by barragedanon

This guy is the very definition of ‘bro’. I love how supportive and caring he is towards Takeo. Heck, one of the highlights of both the anime and manga is the friendship between Suna and Takeo: Ore Momogatari!! is one of the rare shoujo series that actually focuses on another type of relationship outside of the main romance. I sense a genuine, platonic love from him to Takeo and vice-versa, and enhance both of them as character and the story as a whole. There’s also the fact he’s perceptive of those around him, often able to tell what kind of person an individual is, and his placid, calming attitude is a nice change of pace for what I usually find in shoujo male characters.

2. Guts - Berserk

Oh, Guts…Like a lot of character on this list, I love Guts for the fact he’s gone through so much tragedy and still strives forward. Why he’s higher on the list is because his tragedy is still ongoing but he’s moving forward growing as character in such realisitic and painful ways. He has a horrowing, painful past even before he got to the Band of the Hawk, and even after the events of the Eclipse, his life has been anything but a happy. He’s such a deep, magnificently-crafted character, and the closest I’ve seen to a ‘character become a real human in all of anime. Every emotion he expresses feels so real to me ( I have cried for him more time then I can count and I have no word to describe how I felt watching him suffering during the Eclipse), and of course this is helped tremendoul by Miruma’s incredible art. I wish I could say SO MUCH more about him, but we’d be here all day and this post is long enough as is. I wait freverently for the day he finally confronts Griffith!

1. Toshiro Hitsugaya - BLEACH

Well of course I was going to my fictional son at the top of this list! Okay, in all seriousness though, it’s been a weird journey with Toshiro. I started off being indifferent towards him, but when he revealed other facets of himself through the relationships he had with others (in particular his bond with Hinamori), I really started to like him. And now here we are, eight years later and I love this little guy so much that, as a fan of his, I am so proud of how far he has come. He’s one of the most selfless character I’ve seen, willing to put anything on the line for those he cares about and push himelf to his limit to become stronger…and he’s only a kid (by Shinigami standards)!! I could go on all day about him, but I’ll leave that to my other posts where I’ve talked about his character and development. He, along with Momo, holds a special, nostalgic place in my heart.

I tag @sakura-warrior, @herprettysmile, @ishiyo, @xxhanabifireworksxx  and @johnnysjoestar if you guys want to do this :D

Uncharted - The Lost Legacy (Yingkang Luo)

I had a great opportunity to work on Meenu for Uncharted - The Lost Legacy. We scan the entire character from a 6 year- old Indian girl who worn the exact same costume, then I altered her proportion, created hair,everything related to her based on Frank Tzeng’s supervision. Although Meenu is only a supported character, her face has been painted over several times by Richard Lyons to support her personality better. Her costume pattern is also designed by Richard Lyons,too.

anonymous asked:

wait what?? Love yourself her? I am so lost why is the her there?? Who does it refer to? I haven't had proper sleep, I can't even think right 💀

It says BTS LOVE YOURSELF 承 ‘Her’ 

Remember the highlight Reels? There were these characters in the title of each reel, these same ones are the 4 steps of essay writing:

  1. - the beginning: The encounters with the girls
  2. - the undertaking: Transition to another view point, how the boys search for each other or remember each other in little things while being with someone.
  3. - the turning point: Problems happening
  4. - the conclusion: Jin is a time traveler

So will This comeback be something similar to the second reel? 

According to @grandninjakingdom , “On its own, it typically just means “receive”, “succeed” (as in coming next), or “inherit. 

In the highlight reel it was short for 承句 (승구/seunggu), which refers to the development of a story, and it’s probably the same in this case. 起承轉結 (기승전결/ki seung jeon kyeol) seems to be the theme of this comeback”.

GAH I just woke up from a nap too

It Always Starts As Friends: A Kol Mikaelson Imagine

Request from Anon: Hello love could you possibly do one with kol where you’re best friends and get jealous when he starts to hang out with davina a lot. Maybe the reader and kol end up together or something just a whole bunch of angst and fluff please? sorry if it’s really descriptive.

I’m so sorry that this has taken so long, but I hope you like it. Also for the purpose of this imagine in relation to the gif, just imagine the reader is Davina (it was the best one I could find and Kolvina is too perfect). Enjoy x 

There was only one word for what you were feeling. It was not a word you often used, nor was it one that you particularly liked. It also meant that you had the potential to be a cliche, which was something you most definitely did not want to be. 

It started to bubble up when your best friend, Kol Mikaelson, started hanging around with Davina Claire. They were laughing and smiling at the young witch’s failed attempt to perform a simple spell that Kol was trying to teach her. 

It started to overheat when you saw the way Davina looked at him. It was the way you had seen many girls look at him before, with awe and admiration, like he was the only thing that mattered. However, it had never bothered you this much before. 

“Jealousy.”

A voice came from behind you, snapping you out of your thoughts. Turning, you saw Niklaus, his own signature smirk, which was very different from Kol’s, prominent on his face. 

“I’m sorry?”

“Jealousy. I believe that’s what you call what you’re feeling right now, Y/N. And I must tell you, you definitely do not suit it.”

“What are you talking about? I’m not jealous.”

Klaus rolled his eyes.

“Are you sure about that love? It just seems to me that if you keep staring at Davina Claire in that way, you’re probably going to burn a hole in her head. And before you start protesting that my little brother is your purely platonic best friend, I’ll remind you that you’re not the first to fall for my brother, nor will you be the last. No-one’s going to blame you for feeling that way.”

Klaus walked away, leaving you to chew on his words. 

It was true that ever since Kol had come back from the dead, you had felt a stronger bond with him. One that was much stronger than the string that was friendship. 

It wasn’t until Davina kissed Kol on the cheek before leaving that you truly accepted it. 

You were in love with Kol Mikaelson. 

“Told you.”

“Oh shut up, Klaus. Just tell me what to do.”

Klaus’ advice was far from helpful when you told him that he was right. He seemed more focused in bathing in the glory of being right than actually tackling the problem. 

Leaving him to his own devices, you decided to think it over in your room. It had been two days since you’d given into your feelings for your best friend, and as a result had tried to avoid him at every cost. 

It was torture. 

It was torture not seeing his flawless face, not ruffling that silky hair, not looking into those beautiful brown eyes. It was torture not seeing his smile, his smirk, his smug expression whenever he was right. It was torture not hearing his laugh, the noise that was music to your ears. 

It was torture not being near him. 

Elijah had told you that Kol had been spending more and more time with Davina, her affections for him clearly growing each day as he taught her magic. 

Sighing, you fiddled with the bracelet on your wrist. It was one Kol had given you on your birthday so many years ago, your birthstone dangling from it, refracting any light that shined off it. 

“Why did I have to fall in love with you, Kol Mikaelson?”

“You love me?”

Eyes widening at the sound of Kol’s voice, you looked up at him standing in the doorway. The look of shock on his face matched yours. He had clearly heard. 

“Um, what are you doing here?”

“You’ve been avoiding me, I came to see what’s wrong. But never mind that, I think we should discuss what you just said.”

You struggled for words, backing away towards the head of the bed as Kol sat on the edge of it, staring at you intently. 

“I-I-”

“Love me.”

“Um, yes. Although you weren’t supposed to hear that. I mean, you were supposed to hear that, just not yet. I mean,-”

Your words were cut off when Kol placed his lips on yours. The kiss was sudden, passionate, everything you had imagined and more. He pulled you closer to him, his hands on the small of your back as he set your heart on fire. 

When both of you pulled apart for air, and the fire in your chest extinguished, he tucked a lonely piece of hair behind your ear, smiling at you. 

“What was that for?”

He looked down, his nose gently knocking against yours. You shivered, the feeling of his skin on yours enough to make you think you were dreaming. 

“You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to hear you say that, Y/N,” as he spoke, he began to fiddle with that bracelet on your wrist, before taking your hand and drawing patterns on your palm. 

“When you’ve been alive for a thousand years, there’s always the possibility that at some point you’re going to become a character in a story. A generic story where the guy gets the girl and everything’s happy-go-lucky. Everything’s easy. Even us Mikaelsons, who constantly put people in danger, who have trouble following them around like a bloody lost puppy, get it sometimes. Klaus with Hope, and then again with Cami. Elijah with Hayley. I guess it was only a matter of time before I got it too.”

You cupped his cheek, not quite understanding where he was going with this. 

“What are you talking about, Kol?”

This time, as he spoke, the patterns on your palm ceased to exist, and his brown eyes set sight on you. 

“I’m talking about the fact that in these generic stories, it always starts as friends. And to be honest, I was hoping it would be you. I guess what I’m saying is, I love you Y/N Y/L/N. Always have, always will.”

You kissed him again, throwing yourself into the hurricane that would become the story of Y/N Y/L/N and Kol Mikaelson. 

Masterlist

stop equating virginity to purity and innocence and first times to beauty and magic. i’m begging this of you. because i lay on my mattress feeling used and dirty and awful and just so depressed after i lost my virginity. it was supposed to be a beautiful experience, which it wasn’t, so i felt used and gross and i was this used up thing who would never get another first time. because you teach girls that the act of losing our virginity is this super important thing and that after it sex becomes dirty and unholy. sex isn’t dirty and wrong. losing your virginity isn’t a big deal. i lost my virginity in a completely consensual manner with a good friend and it still felt like the worst experience of my life the next morning. and i’m angry that the world made it that for me.

because it didn’t need to be. it didn’t need to feel illicit or awful or wrong. because it wasn’t. it wasn’t even that much of a deal. it didn’t mean anything. i cannot stress how little that night would’ve meant if i hadn’t been told that virginity was the biggest deal in the world. parts felt good. other parts really hurt. all in all it was a fine time. 

it is so fucking damaging to girls for us to create a narrative putting so much weight on virginity and first times and equating all other sex to something dirty. if you don’t love the person you love virginity to, and you probably won’t, that doesn’t matter. that doesn’t make it wrong. i am so exhausted of this.

i was raised with lesbian feminist parents. i am an enlightened member of society. and i still found this narrative affecting me. i can only imagine how it felt for girls less privileged than me who lost their virginity in worse manners.

i am begging you on my knees, stop calling virginal characters “pure” or “innocent.” stop calling sexual characters “sinful.” you are creating a culture that is so damaging and i don’t want anymore girls to experience it.

anonymous asked:

are you sad lin lost?

I am, but I still think that even though he lost (this time), it doesn’t change how important his work is.

I was around 9 when Lilo & Stitch came out, and even though I was kind of past my Disney years, I was so excited to see a movie where a Hawaiian girl was the main character. I know there are so many little girls today who now have an amazing movie and an incredible song to grow up with. They get to see a little bit of their story in the movie all their friends love. They got to see a girl who looks like them perform at the Oscars and hear Lin call her a warrior.

I wish Lin had won the Oscar, but I think he knows that he did something bigger.

Meta Monday: Martha and the Doctor

Welcome to the second half of my reply to the ridiculous comment I got on one of my fanfics. The first half of the comment was a rant against Rose. You can read my Rose Tyler Defence here.

Now we’re onto a topic that’s bothered me from the day I joined the Doctor Who fandom: people blaming the Doctor for not returning Martha’s feelings. 

Before I get started, please understand I am not saying the Doctor treated Martha perfectly. He definitely messed up, more than once. Have you ever realised the first six episodes of S3 cover less than a week? He was so frantic to not have a moment of down time that I’m not sure he really let Martha rest at all. He selfishly ignored her needs.

However… Well, let’s go back to the review and pick apart the points about the Doctor and Martha. Again, if it’s in quotation marks, it’s directly from the review.

1) “Also the Doctor made Martha feel second best to Rose.”

No, he didn’t. One time he made a comment that “Rose would know.” One time he said something that could be construed as comparing her to Rose and finding her lacking. (And I’d argue that he didn’t even realise that’s how it sounded–the line is about wishing Rose were there, not about how Martha isn’t as good as Rose.)

Oh, and one time he took her someplace he’d taken Rose. 

Martha compared herself to Rose in a contest for the Doctor’s affections. It was a contest she was always doomed to lose–something he told her upfront the day she stepped onto the TARDIS.

MARTHA: All on your own? 

DOCTOR: Well, sometimes I have guests. I mean some friends, travelling alongside. I had. There was recently, a friend of mine. Rose, her name was. Rose. And we were together. Anyway. 

MARTHA: Where is she now? 

DOCTOR: With her family. Happy. She’s fine. She’s. Not that you’re replacing her. 

(Emphasis mine)

And if you think Martha didn’t understand that the Doctor meant she wouldn’t replace Rose romantically, two lines later she’s teasing him about the genetic transfer.

So the Doctor told her from the start that they would never be together romantically, and Martha chose to believe she could change his mind. My guess is that she interpreted the situation as a break-up and figured he just needed time to get over Rose. But that misunderstanding is not the Doctor’s fault.

2)  “He also did nothing when he took her as a full time companion to protect her the 2 times she was picked up by racist people.”

Okay. Here’s one of the tricky things about S3. I really side-eye the situations the writers chose to put Martha in. I understand “Human Nature” was based on a novel that was set in 1914. But the writers did little to make that an easier situation for their black companion. 

I don’t blame the Doctor for that, because the Doctor wasn’t actually there. He was in the watch. The Doctor also didn’t choose the time or place they ended up–the TARDIS did that. 

I’m not sure what the other situation is. “Blink?” We see almost nothing of the Doctor and Martha’s time in 1969, so I don’t know how anyone could state with certainty that the Doctor did nothing to help her. Also, I’ll point out that once again, he had no choice in the time they were stuck there. 

Martha didn’t work in a shop because it was the only job she could get as a black woman. She worked in a shop because it was the only job she could get without a CV or references. She did seem to resent the Doctor for that, but her resentment does not actually make it his fault. 

3) “It’s understandable that Rose was his first companion after war, but that did not mean that he had to treat Martha not only as if she was second best and not even tell her that she did a good job.”

Oh boy. 

POINT 1: The Doctor was not attached to Rose just because she was his first companion after the War. He fell in love with her, and because of that, he grieved when he lost her. 

POINT 2: Absolutely none of the things the Doctor did wrong with Martha are Rose’s fault. (Remember, this is all in context of a long review about how Rose was just a selfish girl and Martha was So Much Better.) Rose wasn’t even there in S3 to influence the Doctor’s behaviour. His neglect of Martha is all on him. It is not further proof that Rose was selfish.

POINT 3: He does, in fact, tell Martha she did a good job.

“Very good point. Brilliant, in fact. What was your name?” (Smith and Jones)

 “Oh. Oh, Martha Jones, I like you.” (Shakespeare Code)

“Oh, Martha Jones, you’re a star.” (Lazarus Experiment)

“Thank you.” (42)

“Thanks for looking after me.” (Family of Blood) 

“Thank you. Martha Jones, you saved the world.” (Last of the Time Lords)

Martha had a difficult go of it. She got in the TARDIS with a man grieving for his lost love, and she didn’t realise the full truth of that until nearly the end of her travels. (The fic this comment was left on, In the Shadow of a Ghost, covers the moment she realised.)

Her unrequited feelings suck for her, and I really resent the writers for making almost every major character moment about the fact that the Doctor didn’t love her back. Martha is so much more than the girl who pined for the Doctor. She is clever and badass and a caring friend. I wish they would have focused on those things more. 

I do understand enough about intersectional feminism to get that a black woman playing the love interest is actually a breakthrough. Women of colour are not often shown as objects of romance in media. They have to be the Strong Female Friend instead. But. Martha was not written as the love interest. For her to be the romantic partner, her feelings would have to be returned by the lead character, and they were not. 

To sum up, the fact is that none of Martha’s struggles that stemmed directly from her feelings for the Doctor were his fault. I suppose that when he realised that against his warning she had developed feelings for him, he could have sat her down and talked to her. I suppose. But given that he did warn her off from the start, I don’t know how it can be said that he did not do enough in that regard. 

I realise that in “Partners in Crime,” the Doctor says it was his fault that things got complicated. But feeling guilty for things that are not his fault is one of the Doctor’s chief mental pathologies. In fact, you could probably use his willingness to accept blame for things he had no control over as a gauge of his overall mental health. 

Martha herself doesn’t blame the Doctor for her feelings or for not returning them. In her speech before leaving, she doesn’t say, “You made me feel second best.” She says she spent a lot of time thinking she was second best. She takes ownership of that thought. And after explaining the parallel situation with her friend, she doesn’t accuse him of never seeing her like that. She doesn’t say it like he did anything wrong. She just says that she needs to get out.

That realisation that she’s gotten herself into a bad emotional situation and she needs to get herself out is Martha’s shining moment. It’s Martha realising she’s not second best to Rose, that the Doctor not loving her like he loves Rose does not mean she holds less value. Knowing that she’ll lose sight of that if she stays and so, choosing to leave, is the wisest, bravest thing she’s ever done. Blaming the whole thing on the Doctor steals the power of that moment. It isn’t about him; it’s about her.

playboy; Minseok (1)

Summary: Minseok, the school playboy became your seatmate and maybe knowing what a playboy truly is isn’t that bad.
[ School AU! ]

“Mr. Minseok, sit near Ms. Y/n.” The teacher instructed and I sighed, leaning on my hand. I didn’t want to sit near Minseok. I don’t even want to sit near any boy. I watched him carefully take his bag and place it on his seat. With a glance to me, he smirked. “Hello princess. Seems like we’re going to seatmates.”

“Gross.”


One day, Minseok tapped on my shoulder. I jolted, not really expecting him to communicate. It’s been a week since he had been my seatmate and it was very awkward. We rarely talked but I appreciated it. I am allergic to playboys. “Hey baby, can I borrow an extra pencil? I lost mine and maybe you can lend me one.” His voice was unique and soft. No wonder all those girls swoon whenever he calls them pet names like baby, baby girl, princess, dollface, etc. I just nodded and lent him my pencil. I wasn’t really that interested as I was lost in my world, doodling my favorite characters, and I have no time for Minseok right now. “Thanks baby.” He just leaned in, nuzzling my cheek and I scoffed, not wanting the affection and the glares I’m getting from other girls.

Minseok was that playboy who plays as the victim. His name was ruined in the other classes and so were that girl. He was feeling depressed, based form his crouched down position. A playboy is a playboy until your strings get attached. Basically, a playboy is telling you lies. Lies lies lies. Sweet ones but they can hurt you more than you thought they would. Even if I am not supposed to put my nose in his business, I just cant help it whenever someone gets hurts. It gives me an adrenaline feeling when I got hurt. I found him in the library when the librarian was out. 

“Y/n,” He spoke in a soft quiet voice, snapping me out of my trance.”Yes, Minseok?”
“Why does love hurt?” Watching his adam apple bob up and down, he was choking on his own tears, stopping those tears in the corner of his eyes threatening to spill. “I should ask you that, Minseok. You’re the one who hurts girls on a daily basis. But nevertheless, the answer is: love is when you care about that person so much. You care about them so much. You show them affection wrapping your arms around them, kissing them, and doing those sweet lovely couple things with them.” I answered, patting him on the back. He stayed silent for a while and those words that left his lips shocked me to no end. 

“I want you to show me what love is.”

So, we don’t know if Fairy Tail is coming to an end or not - sure seems that way, with Zeref and Acnologia seemingly the last huge hurdles to overcome. But who knows? Maybe Mashima will throw us a curveball and there’ll be another arc with Ankhseram or something completely different.

Setting aside that possibility, FT is quite likely reaching its end. It’s been quite a ride with lots of bumps in the road; no series is perfect. Speaking for me personally, I only started tuning in for the better part of half a year now. You can tell me all your gripes about the series, and I’ll still tell you more than a few things I like about it. Even arcs like GMG.

Buuut this post isn’t about that. With the series coming to a close and shippers clamoring to support their ships, I figured I’d post a little something for Natza shippers who might be feeling down about Nalu and Jerza shippers POSSIBLY  'getting their way’. Just consider this a little reminder of some of the reasons you supported Natza in the first place. Out of respect to other shippers, I’ll try and tone down ‘anti-nalu’ and 'anti-jerza’ talk, but it might still come up in a few places. Kinda unavoidable…

First up, these two have history. And I don’t mean 'slaves trapped constructing a cultist tower’, I simply mean prior to the first chapter/episode, these two had seven years together, working and living together at Fairy Tail. That might not seem like much, since Erza became S-Class in X780 and kinda left Natsu and Gray in the dust, but they most certainly associated with one another. Igneel provided a base for Natsu’s education, but Erza built up on that. Natsu couldn’t read the job request flier he picked out on his own, and Erza made sure he could… Admittedly traumatizing him in the process. You want more than reluctant student and teacher? In a manga chapter we got not too long ago, we got flashbacks of Natsu, Gray, and Erza (as kids) doing stuff together; Erza breaking up fights, Erza teaching them hunting… and yes, even the times they bathed together. You might say, “Well… wait. That’s not Natza!” And I’ll agree. I’m simply pointing out that Natsu and Erza have history - seven years of it. It’s not a case of Natsu being 'scared’ of Erza for all that time; yes, he has those times where Erza intimidates him into behaving, but you know that little Pyro. He’s just gotta challenge Erza and catch up to her. Erza’s not someone unbeatable; she just really… really… strong. And of course Natsu admires that.

So now we’re to current events as the series officially begins. Admittedly, it takes a few episodes before Erza gets her debut, but she shows up, and we get our first impressions of the scarlet knight. She’s a tough disciplinarian, but she knows Natsu and Gray well enough to know they’re capable in their own right. Moreover, Natsu really shows determination here as he makes Erza promise to have a rematch with him after the mission. And that’s how they, Lucy, and Happy wind up going on their first conquest of a Dark Guild. Ah, but Erza comes with her own quirks, just like Natsu and Gray. She totes around a HUGE pile of luggage, and to make the train ride easier on Natsu, she… knocks… him… out. Still by far one of my favorite moments of the series. I can see why some might label Natza as a brotp with this kind of scene, but our time will come.

So they beat Eisenwald and Lullaby, and Natsu and Erza get their rematch. Whoo hoo. But their rematch gets broken up as the Council comes to arrest Erza for the destruction of the Guild Conference meeting hall in Clover Town (at least officially…).Of course Natsu won’t let that stand, and he makes quite a scene in the courtroom as he tries to save the redhead. … Well, instead of that slap on the wrist like they’d initially attended, the Council locks the two Fairy Tail mages in a cell for the night. Understandably, Erza is quite frustrated with Natsu’s lack of perception, but nonetheless, she thanks him for standing up for her.

As we’ll discover throughout the series, there are lots of instances where Natsu and Erza are concerned for one another; but moreover, there are plenty of instances where they strongly believe in one another as well. And it’s not just misplaced trust - they DO get the job done, such as when Natsu beats Gajeel and saves Lucy, and when Erza withstood a blast from the Jupiter Cannon for her Guild and still had the energy to take down Aria a short while later. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s a basis for a healthy relationship right there. Worry and trust come in fair shares; as time goes on, these two become less and less worried for one another even in the face of overwhelming odds. They know the other can handle the situation and come out on top; the worry never goes away fully, just decreases in the face of mutual respect and trust.

And then we reach the epitome of our Natza ship… Nalu’s worst nightmare…The Tower of Heaven Arc. I am going to try and sidestep the icky love triangle that Mashima tries to make here - I’ll make it as simple as possible. This arc is where we learn about Erza’s past. Why she is the way she is, why she doesn’t get along with Councilman Siegrain, why she can find it hard to open up to people. Erza tries to keep her Fairy Tail family out of it, but they get dragged into it anyway. She mends bridges with her old friends, thanks to Simon; but on the flipside, Erza acts very much unlike herself here (at least from what we’ve seen up to this point). In this conflict, Erza is ready to throw her life away to protect both of her families. Despite being a seasoned warrior by this point, she can’t summon the same strength that she did when she tried to fight Jose Porla! And she’s in better shape than she was at that time! Perhaps some will argue that this is simply who Erza is - strip away her armor, and she’s a traumatized little girl with a *tragic* past. Ugh. Nope, nope, nope. By no means am I arguing that Erza can’t have her tender side; it’d be hard to like her character if she didn’t have such a side. What I am saying is that when Erza left the Tower of Heaven, she was alone and lost when she wandered to Fairy Tail. But in that time there, she acquired a new family, recovered the strength she once had when Grandpa Rob died and she inspired the slaves to keep on fighting. In fact, you could say she surpassed that strength - she became S-Class, didn’t she? Yet the moment her past comes back to haunt her, Erza horribly reverts; she goes into that fight with Jellal with a defeatist’s mindset. Thankfully, Natsu is up to the task of helping Erza bury her past. He fights Jellal, who is one of the Ten Wizard Saints, who took over the management of the Tower of Heaven, and who killed the mutual friend he and Erza once shared - the guy who made it possible for Erza to reconnect with her old family, Simon. He fights Jellal knowing most if not all of this, even when Erza desperately pleads with him to abandon the fight. Natsu can’t and won’t abandon her, though. In the end, Natsu makes a gutsy move of eating Etherion, and that gives him the strength to beat down Mr. Wizard Saint. Say what you will about that, how the fight 'should’ have gone, but I think it worked very well symbolically. Erza’s past warred with her present and future, and guess which came out on top? The scarlet knight picked herself up yet again and moved on with her life, despite lingering thoughts on Jellal and Simon. We can probably agree that Natsu had similar moments of getting worked up over villains hurting other friends - Lucy (present and Future), Yukino, etc. - but for me personally, I feel like there’s something fundamentally different in how those moments feel compared to the Tower of Heaven. For Lucy, Natsu saving her happens a little too often without Lucy doing the same as much for my tastes (in other words, those hero moments don’t feel as deep and meaningful to me). And for Yukino… well. I think anyone would get worked up over Yukino’s treatment by her Guild (especially her Master). I feel like Erza and the Tower of Heaven is different because Natsu connected with her more deeply than he ever had prior to this; he saw her pain, and wished for nothing more than to end her tears. He panicked after she sacrificed herself to stop the Tower from exploding. And in that dreamlike vision of the future brought about by Etherion, Natsu didn’t believe that Erza had died. Everyone else had given up, but not him. And whose arms does she wake up in, after realizing someone had saved her from being fully absorbed by Etherion? Natsu’s. He even makes her promise not to do such a suicidal move again. On Erza’s side, she recognizes his growth the moment he took down Jellal, and she tried to get him out of the Tower before it exploded. After seeing how affected Natsu would have been with her death, Erza cites that, “You don’t die for your friends. You live for them.” It was a pretty good shippy moment right there, but then the rest of their friends find them and rejoice that they’re all alive.

We can whine about it all we want, but when the Oracion Seis arc hit, that’s when the Jerza ship began to get a little more wind in its sail. After all, the man that brought Erza pain in the past returned, but he had… amnesia. You gotta be sympathetic to a guy like that, right? They had such a tragic past, and now Jellal can’t remember it. What a pity. … Okay, enough bashing. But it is a bit annoying for us Natza shippers; after the high that we got from ToH, we’re suddenly smashed back to earth with Jellal’s return. You can say that Natsu came to forgive Jellal in this arc, but that isn’t the case when you inspect the arc carefully. After all, what’s the first thing Natsu does when he first hears that Wendy revived Jellal? He’s intent on making sure Erza never has to see him again. Not out of jealousy - but out of sympathy for his friend. Natsu doesn’t want to see her cry again, but despite this, Erza finds the blue-haired mage anyway and comes to the dissatisfying conclusion that Jellal really can’t remember all of his past atrocities. Later, Jellal goes off to help Natsu fight Zero, and the Pyro tries to fight him off as well. Sure, Jellal ended up helping Natsu in the end, giving him something equally as potent as Etherion so that he may attain Dragon Force again, but that anger that Natsu holds hasn’t vanished. They’re tentative allies against a greater threat. And when the Rune Knights come to take Jellal and Oracion Seis away, Natsu doesn’t fight for Jellal’s freedom because he’s a swell guy that helped take down Zero; he does it for Erza, because the redhead is conflicted about resisting the Council’s authority. Despite his personal feelings about the blue-haired mage, he tries to resist for Erza’s sake so that the two can resolve their past. Of course, Erza tells him and the others to stand down in the end, and the Dragon Slayer grudgingly complies. Erza goes back to angsting about her past.  

I’m not gonna say my interpretation of events is the one, true way to look at the series. I AM saying this is how we Natza fans see the relationships between Natsu, Erza, Jellal, and Lucy. Some of you naysayers will argue Natsu and Erza are siblings; Jellal and Erza have such a tragic and *amazing* past together; Natsu brought Lucy to Fairy Tail and totally fell in love; you’re perfectly fine with believing in any of that. Just don’t shove your theories down our throats. From a Natza fan’s perspective, such as mine, Natsu brings out the best in Erza; he doesn’t make her think about her past every five minutes or force her to be the ever-shining beacon in their relationship. On the flipside, Erza doesn’t require saving all the time; she stands alongside Natsu, and is a pillar for him when he is sad or has doubts. Natza is mutual, and I think there’s something deeper there than sibling love. Heck, there are still Natza moments floating throughout the series, it’s just that whenever Jellal gets involved… yeah. You can tell what Mashima is likely pushing for, just not very convincingly. It’s fine if Erza becomes Jellal’s redemption, but it’s such a shame that a mutual, passionate relationship like Natza goes out the window in favor of giving Jellal a relationship to go with his redemption. Just look at all the various moments they have together…

So yeah! Criticize the Natza ship all you want, but you’ll never stomp us out completely. Even if Mashima cedes to you Nalu and Jerza fans, we’ll still have all these moments and more to look back on - canon, filler, omake, you name it. I think we have reason to be proud of our ship to the very end. We’re not a brotp or a fanon couple - if Nalu can be argued to be semi-canon, when it wasn’t in Mashima’s original plan, then I don’t see why we can’t make a case for it being at least semi-canon. I’ve certainly reflected long and hard on it over the past half year I’ve been into FT. I’m still going to be bummed if Mashima follows the crowd and forces Nalu and Jerza to happen, but I won’t falter in my love for this ship. I encourage other 'unpopular’ ships to do the same. I certainly don’t mind other ships with Natsu involved; Natza is just my OTP.

anonymous asked:

I might be dumb saying this but in the databook, Bakugou thought that Uraraka was no good.I was a bit confused on that.You might not read this but its worth a try.right?

[in reference to this omake]

haha, that’s just Bakugou being himself. aka, refusing to accept something that’s presented to him, being in denial, redirecting his anger, etc. Bakugou is a big ball of emotions, and he is constantly swimming in denial

the fact that he still calls her Uraraka sort of undermines the statement, because he only calls the people he acknowledges by their names. everyone else is given a somewhat demeaning nickname (drooly, soy-sauce face, etc). 

of the students, Bakugou only calls Kirishima and Uraraka by their names. he first called Kirishima by his name during the Calvary Battle after Kiri teamed up with him and showed his strength. 

Bakugou only actually met Uraraka during their fight (he had no idea who she was before then, other than that she hung out with Izuku) and calls her ‘round-face’ at the beginning of their match. by the end of it, he’s calling her Uraraka because she showed her determination, grit, and the lengths she’s willing to go to to win. afterwards, he says that there’s nothing fragile about her after Kaminari says that he all out against a ‘fragile little girl’ (which is the first time he’s ever shown defending another character, particularly someone who lost against him)

the reason Bakugou calls Uraraka “no good” (or whatever translation you go with) in the omake is because she called him out on his relationship with Izuku. she said that Bakugou was so cool during their match at the sports festival, but with Izuku, Bakugou constantly tries to push him away as if he’s scared or intimidated by him

this is right before the end of term exam too, which puts Bakugou’s frustration, anger, low self-confidence, and denial in regards to Izuku into the forefront. 

(Fear, Pride, Denial…. can’t get any more plain then than, my friend. (i will never get over that panel because it literally says denial RIGHT THERE b/c this kid is living in it lmao))

Bakugou has a LOT of complicated feelings towards Izuku, and the most of it stems from Bakugou’s own self confidence issues. since he was a child, he thought Izuku was looking down on him, and going to UA sorta only strengthened these feelings of low confidence, and pushed them to the forefront of his emotions (particularly after the Heros vs. Villains training battle)

again, the reason why Bakugou called Uraraka “no good” was because she actually brought this subject up and straight up asked him about it. this is something he doesn’t like talking about, thinking about, or acknowledging whatsoever. but she brought it up to him. she perfectly summarized his feelings towards Izuku, his fear and intimidation, and finally says that since Izuku and Bakugou were childhood friends and are in the same class now, they should try to be friends again.

please note, Bakugou doesn’t respond to her statement. he immediately flies into attack mode and ignores what she says entirely.

he calls her “no-good” because she made him think about these things when he’s been perfectly happy ignoring them entirely because he lives in denial and hates acknowledging these faults of his

Uraraka sees straight through him tho, and it pisses him off lmao. but he still calls her Uraraka, which means he still respects and acknowledges her as a worthy opponent/person. 

long story short, Uraraka called Bakugou out on stuff he didn’t wanna think about and it pissed him off lol

somewhat related: [here’s a meta i wrote about Bakugou and Uraraka’s fight]

Why tf is everyone so quick to bash Noora? She’s one of the best female characters on Skam. Everyone hates on her because they claim she lost her best traits and blah, blah, blah. Throughout s2, she never lost her character. She’s still a feminist and she called William out on his behavior multiple times, she kept her opinions. She fell in love, so what? She’s just a girl, is she not allowed to have feelings?

And after today’s clip, I’ve seen way too many posts calling Noora a skank, bitch, backstabber, snake, and many other shitty things. And those are the same people who wanna talk about feminism? LOL

Why aren’t I seeing more posts about Yousef, who flirted with Sana and clearly showed interest in her. He’s just as much to blame as Noora. It’s not even canonically confirmed that she knew about Sana’s feelings for him. We don’t know the whole story, pieces are intentionally missing from the story. 

Noora most likely kissed Yousef because she was hurt that William - the person she was really, really in love with - had moved on, not to purposely hurt Sana. Noora has never been depicted that way, she’s always been the one to stand up for her friends and stick by them. Now we’re just suddenly going to erase every good and badass thing she’s ever done? 

Go right ahead, demonize Noora. Meanwhile, many continue to make excuses for Vilde’s sexist, judgmental, islamophobic, shallow ass. 

Unfathomable.

favorite comic character meme: 3 non-romantic relationships — [1/3] selina kyle & holly robinson 

“And when I see Holly, I can tell she’s been living in those shadows with me the entire time. My absence has been unforgivable. And the saddest part is, I know she’ll forgive me, anyway. It’s the best part too. Because somehow, it gives me back a big part of what was missing inside… It helps me find myself again. Just like that. All my problems start to fade, and the only thing I care about is this girl, who went through so much for my sake. Who lost a piece of herself that she can’t get back again. And as she apologizes for being so weak, for killing Sylvia, for letting Maggie get hurt, and for everything else in the world that isn’t her fault, I hold her tight and whisper over and over again: It’s okay, it’s okay. And just saying that, feeling her tears fall onto me as I do, I know that’s it’s going to be true sometime soon. I don’t know exactly how, but we are going to be okay. We have to be.” Catwoman v3 #19
