damien stop that

  • People: I can't believe Damien's not a Slytherin!
  • Me: What? Have you ever met a LESS ambitious person? He could do literally anything he wanted to the world. He could start or end wars. He could restructure the government. He could end hunger and poverty. He could appoint himself king of everything. And what does he do? He skips lines and makes people tell him their secrets!
Why Len isn't wearing the parka
  • Malcolm: we're from the future to recruit you into our boyband
  • Damien: stop calling it a boyband, we're professionals
  • Leonard: whatever, I'm in *suits up*
  • All of them: ...not in that jacket you're not. we have an image to preserve
  • Eobard: let's just hope he sticks around, unlike the LAST guy we gave a makeover to. Looking you you, Rip.
  • Leonard: I regret this already

I want to cry… I feel like we lose another beautiful soul every single day.
Protect trans kids. Protect them before they become a hashtag. Protect them while they’re still around. Protect them because a 41% suicide attempt rate is too god damn high. Protect them because we shouldn’t be losing another kid every other day just because of their gender identity.
Protect transgender kids, please, I beg of you.

Hey. Hey Guys. Do you know what’s pointless? Shipping Wars.

Especially in big comic books franchises such as DC or Marvel.

Seriously, shipping wars are just crazy in general and shouldn’t happen. Asking everyone to ship your ship is like asking everyone to have the same favorite food. IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.What you think is gross someone else thinks is wonderful. Everyone will think things differently.

But since people seem to have to have a reason not to start a shipping war (LONG SIGH) here’s one for comic couples.

Okay, just hear me out. (Long post warning). So lately I’ve been getting back into the Teen titans Franchise by watching some of the new movies and old TV shows. After watching Judas Contract and Teen Titans vs Justice League i became a huge Damirae shipper. (Or demonbirds). 

And i thought at one point ‘these two have so much potential and are so great together! I wish they were a couple in the TV show, it would have been so awesome!’ 

Then I thought, ‘Uh, no it wouldn’t have. Damien didn’t exist in the tv show. She’s with beast boy in the TV show because, for one thing, he actually exists in the show.’ 

Are you following me? 

No? Okay, here’s another example. 

When i was little I always assumed rogue and ice-man were a couple in everything because of the movies. But when I watched x-men evolution I loved Rogue and Gambit. Not only that, but Rogue is with a bunch of people in different media’s. Gambit, Cody, ice-man, magneto…

Do you get it now? 

Its because the wonderful creators of comic books have blessed us readers with the ultimate solution to every shipping war or argument for one in the world!

ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’S. 

(Ya ya, cheers in the back ground, yahhhhh). 

Let me explain. 

Comic story lines have been re-made and restarted so many times. There are probably hundreds of ‘first stories’ to X-men or as we all know, way to many spider man movies. And in these stories the story often changes. New characters, new worlds and…new couples. 

So when someone says ‘this couple is canon and this one isn’t,’ that’s not always true in comics. Because in different worlds there are different couples. 

Welcome to canon heaven everybody!

So many ships are cannon! No ship is ‘better’ than another because since there are so many different worlds one could be cannon in one and not cannon in another. There is no ‘better’ when there are so many different versions!

If you don’t like one ship then there are so many ways to just get fuel for another in a different story!

Don’t like the fact that Natasha was romantic with Bruce in Avengers 2? That’s fine, go find yourself some BuckyNat in the comics!

Not a fan of Superman and Wonderwomen in the new comics? Alright, go to justice league where wonder women’s shipped with batman or old superman shows that have him with Louis. 

Heck, we all know Batman’s dated a ton of people.

Seriously, there are lists about how many kids Wolverine has with different women in different universe’s. 

Guys, we can all chill! Everyone can be happy with there ships because there are so many versions and they are all great!. 

And for the argument ‘oh, but this ship is so much better than this other one’ doesn’t work in this line. Because maybe it is in one comic, but in say a TV show it may not be. They are both cannon and they could both be equally good, just not in the same version. 

Heck, even the non-canon ships don’t need to fret! in a few years there may be a reboot that your couple could become canon! Who knows? 

Feel free to add opinions or arguments for different franchises on the end. I’m pretty sure i forgot half of what i was going to say anyway. But in general i think a majority of us at least can agree on one thing. 

SHIPPING WARS ARE STUPID. 

Thank you and have a good day.  

Sinclairs-Demians Theory

Most of the theories now are focused on Demian by Hermann Hesse…

Hence the book suddenly being sold out everywhere…

If you are asked for three words that would explain HYYH what would they be?

  • In my opinion… it would be… Youth… Struggle… Dreams
  • My three words for Demian? Youth… Struggle… Will


Overarching summary of the book:

Demian is the coming of age story of Sinclair. Hesse's Demian dealt with the problem and experience of change. It was written during the First World War which is often seen as a time during which the world was robbed of its innocence. In the story, Sinclair meets this older boy named Demian who comes in different points of his life to usher him into maturity. Demian opens Sinclair’s eyes to see the world in a new perspective.  One of his main perspectives was that there is no pure evil and no pure good. That if one is not limited by what society deems as good and evil then one can attain his will or want better.

Another important character is Eva, she is Demian’s mom. She is beautiful in both masculine and feminine sense. She is, for Sinclair, what Demian cannot be. Demian is Sinclair’s friend and mentor; Eva acts as Sinclair’s mother and the object of his romantic love. Like Demian, Eva’s primary role is to help Sinclair develop appropriately.

Sinclair does meet more people along the way, all helping him figure out more about himself. But Every so often his path crosses with Demian. Eva taught Sinclair a trick to find her, he said that Sinclair just needs to will all his energy and she will send someone like her to be with him. (take note of this, I’ll explain it later) He tried it once and was surprised when it worked and Demian stood beside him. During the war, Sinclair did the same thing and Demian was suddenly beside him.  Demian tells Sinclair that if he ever feels like he needs help, he no longer needs to call Demian. He simply needs to look inside himself and he will see that Demian is within him. With that, Demian gives him a light kiss on the lips—a kiss that he says is from Frau Eva—and vanishes into the night.


Sooo… who is who… and what is what… in my opinion:

I think… Each pairing are each other’s Demians and Sinclairs helping each other reach the enlightenment that maturity supposedly brings.

Yes they each have their individual roads of struggle towards self discovery and they did some things that society would deem bad/evil while they were together. 

Messing up restos… 

Causing traffic…

but none of them were bad enough to cause themselves true harm. They had more difficulty traversing through their lives alone though, Damien without Sinclair… Sinclair without Damien… meant a road of self discovery alone and that’s when things got messier.

Remember, you can smile as long as we’re together? 

All symbolisms in the short films point towards this. Kookie being first, showed the connection of HYYH story to Demian. It shows the importance of the pair ups and how relevant they are to each other. Shout out to Namjoon for the narrations that finally led us to interpret the stories this way, with their deeper meaning…

In terms of story lines, each pair has one and the short films gave us a peek on what happened to the pair. The short films I think are their mid-points where they have to come into terms with losing their Demians.


Sugakookie: Sparrow Hawk

In my opinion, SugaKookie shows that they are each other’s Damien and Sinclair the most. The way they were both struggling but were supporting each other and watching over the other was very evident. To Suga, he is Sinclair and Kookie is his Demian, his companion to self discovery. And Kookie is the same way with Suga. Story wise? Either they both died or just Yoongi. You probably read other theories, birds are omens of death. Yoongi legit caught fire so many times in so many ways. 

I do think something happened to Kookie that led to Yoongi’s decision to have a need for this hot gif.

Their fight in Run was the turning point in their relationship. Suga, the raged-alcoholic fighting the run-away angst-y teenage Kookie led to Kookie leaving and the accident. Suga felt the guilt, which is why in Run Jap MV you could see him with all the broken shards of glass. The fight was his biggest regret. (BTW: I think that was what Run Jap MV showed, each HYYH character’s biggest regret. I never wrote this down, I just shared this to anyone who will listen.)

All other symbolisms in #Begin were proof of their pairing and Yoongi’s fire bending. You’d think Kookie died too due to the crash but the sparrow hawk in the end of #Begin makes me hope that death is not the only possible ending. 

What is the sparrow hawk? The bird represents a desire to break free, to be independent. We’ve seen birds all throughout this era. Symbolically, this shows that this yearning has been present from the very beginning, as with the book. The big sparrow in the end indicates that Kookie has reached within himself to activate the part of him that longs to be set free.

Suicides see death as a form of freedom. Another possibility? Kookie didn’t die and #Begin is not the afterlife but a state of limbo one enters during coma. While in the subconscious he found out and came to terms with losing Yoongi and will learn how to live independently (If you are the optimist). So this could be the case or not… 


JiHope: Apple 

Well, Safe to say, in #Lie Jimin was in the loony bin. Probably trying to cope with his loss of his Demian, Jhope. 

If Sugakookie had the sparrow hawk, Jihope had the apple. The apple, which like in the Bible, was what Sinclair would point out as the cause of his first misdeed. To relate with the village boys, Sinclair lied that he stole apples from the orchard. A character named Kromer blackmails Sinclair to pay for Kromer’s silence. This led Sinclair to do another misdeed. He stole to pay Kromer. The apples started his loop of misdeeds and him being under the control of blackmailing bullies who threatened to turn him in. Who saved Sinclair from this loop? Damien. 

This only leads me to believe that Jimin is also Sinclair, lost without his Damien to stop the loop he is trapped in. How many times did Jimin try to kill himself in I Need U? Showcasing depression and addiction as the misdeed that loops is very fitting, in my opinion.

Speaking of addiction, Jhope. Jhope could be dead or just not with Jimin inside the loony bin anymore. We did see them both in the hospital in Run. Jhope may have had drug dependency issues due to his Narcolepsy and wanted to cure himself of this. Hence the throwing of pills and the hospital, or in my opinion, rehab scene with Jimin (the kid with depression/suicidal tendencies).

People think that Jhope died on the bridge. He admitted to being a narcoleptic though and the fall could have been an episode. So this could be the case or not…


VMon: Abraxas

VMon’s struggles portrays the idea of no pure good and no pure evil concept the best in all the story lines which is why #Stigma showed a significant name from the Demian story, Abraxas

Demian was the one who told Sinclair about Abraxas. He explained that the God Christians worshipped was pure good and for us to understand the world, we should understand not only what is good but also what is evil. That is Abraxas. He is a mystical deity? entity? who is both God and Satan, good and evil rolled into one. Hesse wanted to further show the blurry line between all good and all evil. This pair shows that not everything is just black and white. They were the only pair who legit committed a felony together. YOLO much?

We have always seen Namjoon going about his life as if dis-attached from everyone (aside from their ot7 and paired up flash backs). He had work and lived alone, just normal day to day. 

Two significant clues that link Namjoon to #Stigma are the spray paint and phone booth. In the end of #Stigma, V requested his one call. Remember Jap Run MV with Namjoon in the telephone booth? He was never able to answer that call, I think. Does this make him bad? Is he purely bad for living his own life?

V, Sinclair has been left behind by his Demian, Namjoon. The puppy in #Stigma? The puppy was V’s innocence. It was trusting and innocent and it left him when the walls came down. He lost his innocence along the way, due to everything he had to go through. 

V jumping towards the water in prologue and re-emerging after much struggle doesn’t necessarily mean that he died. In most cultures, water is a symbol for cleansing and renewal. It could be a symbolism of his road from wanting freedom to finally attaining it in himself. His freedom was attained through murder. He willed for his freedom and did an act that society would deem immoral. Was that act pure evil though?


Jin…

Jin, I think is Eva, the compassionate character watching over the Sinclairs and Demians. In te book, she loves and coddles Sinclair, commiserating with him about the hard times he had during his adolescence. At the same time, however, she is strong and commanding, exhorting him to become more in touch with and confident of his desires. Eva is a symbol of perfection and completion; she encompasses everything.

Jin oversees everything, he is part of each one’s journey but at the same time has little control over it. I am seriously looking forward to how they will cap off Jin’s story.


Summoning Trick:

So Eva told Sinclair that if he willed all his energy she will send someone like her to be with Sinclair, right? Can you list down how many times these happened in HYYH Series? Where one person just opens a door or closes their eyes and suddenly another person (or more would suddenly) be beside them?


I didn’t want to go through every little detail and assume a different meaning for each little hint and symbolism. So there. 

 (This next question might bring me hell… but… ) What do you think guys? 


“Youth has no age. It just stays there, beautifully. And it is everyone who id chasing their dream. Rapmon, Jin, Suga, J-Hope,Jimin, V, and Jungkook. We are also part of the youth who are chasing the stars. So you can call us young, and we will never get old.” ~ RM, Youth Intro

Johnny Depp Takes A Powerful Stand, This Time With Damien Echols, Stopping Arkansas Executions
The last time Johnny Depp took a strong stance against the Arkansas death penalty, Johnny had Marilyn Manson at his side and the Memphis Three were released.

‘Johnny Depp and Damien Echols’ words did not fall on deaf ears though. At 7 p.m. on Good Friday, Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen issued a temporary restraining order preventing the Arkansas execution of six men. The state’s Supreme Court had already halted the execution of a seventh man earlier today, according to The New York Times. ‘
