compete!

I feel so bad that we couldn’t get the 4th win for them,, that Jackson didn’t get the opportunity to win an award with GOT7 this comeback :-( but don’t be discouraged we still worked hard, got7 was competing against some very popular artist with high digital sales. we just have to work harder next comeback guys! congratulations for the 4 wins we’ve been able to get for them!!

@shieldfoss, it’s expensive to start up a tractor company and out-compete the incumbent, even when the incumbent is being a dick.

Perfect capitalist competition only works if you have infinite capital available to pursue every possible commercial opportunity.

I think by far my favourite part of your writing is how you refuse to write Shiro as being perfect. He always has flaws just like the rest of the characters, and the fandom has a severe problem with recognizing that he isn't "perfect space dad." I just wanna say thanks, man.

I literally just answered and ask very similar in vein to this, and I’m dying that you appreciate it and someone asked me to explain why I do it. I just want Shiro to be dismantled. Remove that man from his pedestal and tug out the nastiest most human parts of him that make him as flawed as the rest of them. In fact, make him the most flawed but continue shoving him in the leader role. It’s satisfying for me? I hate the perfect hero trope where they’re just so consistently competent. Not that I don’t think Shiro can be amazing and plain and simple good, but stories aren’t built on plain and simple.

Anyway, thanks for digging it. I really like painting him that way.

How does old man Vanya and Nevo teach the lambs about the good ol' birds and the bees?And how the hell do they expect to explain to the girl lambs why they're bleeding from the ovaries? ;)

“…Have I not answered this already? Why are you all so obsessed with this topic? I will address this issue when I come to it, like any competent adult will.”

“Unless all of you think that I am somehow limited because of my sex, in which case, please, feel free to insult me.”

“Also, girl nations… can’t menstruate? They can’t procreate at all what with being what they are. I’m not even the same species and I know that.”

“Because I told you.”

“Yea well, at least I remembered.”

Not The Horse Racing Series We Deserved, But the One Someone Apparently  Thought We Needed

Yes, especially for my new followers, I am once again assaulting your sanity with this. Because misery loves company.

I’m dragging this back out because apparently the above video for the video game Pretty Derby was so popular it’s actually getting it’s own fully animated anime series.

The Pretty Derby video game isn’t even out yet, they just released the first in-game footage the other day (See below). It also has it’s own manga (comic) called STARTING GATE! on the game company’s website, though it isn’t in English.

Apparently the plot of the game revolved around these anthropomorphized horse girls who are “ endowed with excellent running capability” (And apparently endowed in other areas…) “…and who aim to become top idols and compete in the national sports entertainment show “Twinkle Series.” “

I think I am going to bed now.

Please Japan, just make more Gallop Racer instead.

hey that post you reblogged about Justin having a character and insisting on she pronouns; do you know what that was from? Was that something from taz that I just missed/forgot about?

there was a max fun drive recently, and the boys recorded a bonus episode of taz for people who donated. travis was dm, it was a whole new campaign w new characters, and justin made his chara a Competent Woman named troth. hope that clears it up?

To everyone saying that Victor and Yuuri pair skating is impossible: That’s enough.

Yes, competitive same-sex pair skating is impossible.

But I’m pretty sure most of us just want to see an intimate moment between Victor and Yuuri back in Ice Castle Hasetsu, where they play Stammi Vicino/Stay Close to Me and skate out their feelings for each other together, perhaps holding hands/each other’s waists and trusting the other to lead them with closed eyes or something along those lines.

We don’t want them to compete in pair skating. We want to see a moment that is only their own, shared and expressed through their mutual passion and the thing that brought them together.

That is all.

If you ever feel bad about taking a longer time than someone else to accomplish the same things, just remember that during the 1912 Stockholm Olympics Japanese marathon runner Shizo Kanakuri passed out in a garden party along the marathon route and, instead of notifying race officials of his inability to finish the race, he went back to Japan without telling anyone and was considered a missing person by the Swedish authorities for 50 years.

He didn’t finish the race until 1967 when a Swedish television station offered to help him complete the run, and he finished with a final time of 54 years, 8 months, 6 days, 5 hours, 32 minutes and 20.379 seconds.

I see your “Julia survived instead of Magnus” AUs and I raise you a Chalupa and a Hekuba as her adventuring buddies …Trois Rowdy Gurls, anyone?
