My family and I took this kid into our house. The kid opened two cupboards full of food and water and told us we had to hide from a monster that looked like the Babadook. So we took the food, water, and grabbed some blankets and hid upstairs. I hid in my room but my door was broken. Eventually, the Babadook came to get us and after I died, I ended up in a pride parade (I woke up disappointed I didn’t go to one for real).

Gulag (a forced-labor camp) guard searching a Russian writer, poet, and a Nobel Prize winner Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

In February 1945, Solzhenitsyn was arrested by SMERSH for writing derogatory comments in private letters to a friend, Nikolai Vitkevich, about the conduct of the war by Joseph Stalin, whom he called “Хозяин” (“the boss”). He was accused of anti-Soviet propaganda under Article 58 paragraph 10 of the Soviet criminal code, and of “founding a hostile organization” under paragraph 11.


Some test renders. Yeah, I’m still terrible at animating, but this is just for testing purposes, so don’t judge me to harshly.

For some reason, the batch rendering of the animation wouldn’t use the tone mapping I had in my preview render (the top image). As a result, the light is much softer and the colours are less saturated. Really annoying.

Speaking of things that are annoying: Maya is the absolute worst piece of software I’ve ever had to work with. I ended up having to re-rig the character completely from scratch in Blender and import it to Maya as an .fbx because both the rig and the weight painting tools kept screwing shit up.

We Are All Lannisters And Starks In Some Form Or Another, Are We Not?

In 2017, Dmitry Kornienko, a Russian psychologist, presented his work “We are all Lannisters and Starks, or why good people die first.” In this work, Kornienko diagnosed the characters of Game of Thrones with many(shitload) disorders:

  •  Lannisters
  1. Cersei suffers from a typical narcissistic personality disorder. Whatever she says or does, her ego screams “Look at me! I’m perfect.” Don’t believe her when she says she loves her children. That’s a lie. During the last episodes, we can also observe her psychopathic behavior.
  2. Jemmie - a well-behaved husband, a push over who has a domineering wife. In first season, he acts like a true psychopath - incest with a sister and when he attacks Bran. But? Having lost his hand, he became a shadow near Cersei. Semi-identical twins do have a psychological connection and dependence on each other, however, in cases of fraternal twins, it rarely happens. Apparently, during their childhood, Cersei was a leader, which played a significant role in their later relationship. 
  3. Joffrey - a psychopath (duh!) - no understanding of morality and ethics- also sadism (which can be seen during the scenes with Sansa and Ros)
  4. Tyrion - one of the most complicated and psychologically interesting characters. Controversies and a drop of madness made him one of the most popular characters on the show. He is moral free, but has principles and rules he follows, as well as sins  - alcoholism, betrayal. Emotionally stable, but is able to express true feelings (love for Shae), and makes critical decisions when they are needed. When he murders his father, we justify his actions. In addition, Tyrion has an obvious inferiority complex (because of his height), plus, his father’s attitude towards him, could have made him an emotionally disturbed individual, but his intellect abilities compensate this flaw. 
  • Now Starks
  1. Catelyn - a symbol of maternity, she has a victim mentality. 
  2. Aria suffers from a dissociative disorder, provoked by her time spend in the House of Black and White , where she had to get rid of her name and literally wear other faces.
  3. First scenes with Sansa leaves an impression that she is a bit childish and maybe even autistic. But during the last two seasons we can see her psychologically developing. 
  4. Bran suffers from schizophrenia: delusions and hallucinations. Relying on modern psychiatry, Bran should be immediately hospitalized and receive a proper treatment. 
  5. Male starks display childish behavior more often than a mature man’s behavior. They all rely on situations. I don’t want to go to the South - but I’m going. I don’t want to be a king - but I will be, I don’t want to get married- but I’ll marry another girl, I don’t want to betray, but I’ll have to. John Snow is a good example of such behavior. Although he doesn’t want to do something, he usually shows humility. In addition, being a bastard, he has an abandoned child syndrome.

As for other characters:

  • Daenerys - pyromania, genetic predisposition, and splitting (also known as black-and-white thinking). Splitting can be seen during the liberation of Slaver’s Bay. 
  • Oberyn Martell - a high sex drive
  • Petyr Baelish - behavioral disorder. Sometimes, the manipulator has no idea what he really wants, and plays his own game, making chaos. Doesn’t meat criteria for pedophilia, although, in the book Sansa is not yet 14, and he is about 30.  
  • Ramsay Bolton - psychopathy, child trauma, sadism
  • Sandor Clegane (the Hound) - pyrophobia, antisocial disorder
  • Sam Tarly - inferiority complex (because of his weight)
  • Brienne Tarth - Electra complex (Hello, uncle Freud)
  • Theon Greyjoy - dissociative identity disorder. In addition, Stockholm syndrome.

At the end of his lecture, professor answered the question on why good people die first:

Because George Martin is not interested in good people, we are not interested in good people. Of course, it is more fascinating to see people with the dark triad: narcissism, psychopathy and Machiavellianism (the employment of cunning and duplicity) That is why we love Sherlock.

Sooo, this ep Raven said that people can come back to the dead... You think ~someone~ (aka Pyrrha) might return??? Despite she is one of my favorites, I don't wanna this to happen because it will be so meh in the history development... But I don't know!!! What you think about this possibility? She can come back? Will that be good?

I don’t think they will bring her back and I really hope they won’t. Bringing characters back from the dead is something you have to be really, really careful with. It’s easy to make death seem meaningless that way and if you can just bring people back from the dead, who would still be worried when a big fight scene happens? After all even death wouldn’t mean they’re gone for good. 

They let Cinder turn Pyrrha into dust specifically so it would be clear that Pyrrha is dead and won’t come back. Bringing her back would take away from her whole final arc. 

I think it’s more likely Raven either talked about Ozpin or someone who died earlier and is alive right now. 

Or Summer.

Hey Aunty Asy, i need some advice. My mother died on Sunday and ive been grieving but i feel like its still building up and i may breakdown at her funeral. She was only 38 (she had me at 20) and it was too soon and i just want some advive if you can give it. Thank you.

This is an old ask, so apologies if the funeral has already passed. 

I’m sorry to hear about your mother - it’s awful losing a parent when you’re still young, so I hope you have lots of other people around you supporting you through this difficult time. 

There is no shame in breaking down over a death - anywhere. Cry in the supermarket. Cry in class. People will understand. And at a funeral? That’s the very place you’re expected to break down! If you don’t, that’s okay too. But it’s okay to randomly cry when a wave of emotional and grief hits you. 

Equally, it’s okay not to cry. To feel numb, to feel dissociated and like a stranger in your own life. 

Grieving is an intensely personal and individual process. There is no ‘correct way’ to grieve. Don’t worry about how you’re grieving - just take one day at a time. 

What I can tell you is that pain fades. In time, the pain of losing her will fade, and the lovely memories you have of her will remain. You will remember how much you loved her. The good things about her. Little traditions you two had. 

All you need to do is take one day at a time, and in time, you will be okay <3
