despite how awesome this is

I forgot that my niece is 7 years old, so when I casually mentioned that Garrus Vakarian was my space husband she took it literally and burst into tears, asking my sister why she wasn’t allowed to go to the wedding. I showed her a picture of Garrus, hoping that would explain that I was kidding without me spelling it out, but all she did was squint at it and ask if he was wearing a mask or he really looked like a dinosaur.

What Would Dating Paul Lahote Be Like?

Request 3.

  • Being the type of couple that was always competitive over the littlest things.
  • The rest of the pack being thankful for you because you calmed Paul’s temper down a lot since he met you.
  • Never being afraid of him because Paul knows his limits and will never lose it in front of you. If he feels like he is he would run off somewhere so you can’t see him.
  • Non stop cuddles because he is like your personal radiator.
  • Whenever he picks you up on a date in an old beat up truck, both of you blast the music and sing loudly not caring about how bad you sound.
  • Going cliff diving together every time it’s sunny and beautiful outside. You being the most adventures imprint that is always down to do something daring or exciting. 
  • Paul always having his arm around you or holding your hand everywhere you go.
  • The pack being “sick” over how cute you two can be. This result in Paul being embarrassed and starting to blush. So the teasing is non stop from his fellow brothers.
  • Not caring about showing public display of affection with each other.
  • Paul being extremely over protective and just wanting to save you from anything that can possible hurt you.
  • Always causing mischief together because the two of you are known as the the dangerous duo in the pack family.
  • Paul holding you as you feel asleep and watching you lovingly.
  • Whenever you helped Emily cook the two of you would have so much fun gossiping which sometime leads to playfully throwing flour at one another.
  • Worrying about him endlessly when there is a vampire in the area despite him assuring you how awesome his wolf abilities are.
  • You being able to finally find your people with the other pack members and imprints.

What similarities do you see in Adrien and Marinette?

I suppose this question comes from this post, in which, i said Adrien and Marinette are pretty similar when it comes down to it (that’s why they are the chosen pair in the first place xD). Although I just said that impulsively (because despite the two having contrasting traits I feel they have the same wavelength of some sort?). I guess it’s worth to elaborate a bit.


Well, first of all, they are both kids with great potential but hindered by their own insecurities.

Adrien, being a sheltered child was never able to make friends aside from Chloe. While he doesn’t really tolerate “bad” actions such as putting a bubblegum on someone’s chair, he is also a sweetheart that doesn’t want to sell a friend away. It’s to the point of getting his self into trouble. Of course, Nino told him it’s better to tell the truth and he did so afterwards but I think this is a highlight to Adrien’s “niceness” may have come from not wanting to incite dislike/discontent from other people and therefore, “lose” friends (or potential ones at least). This is something I also noticed in Volpina episode.

Adrien is angry for Lila’s sake, but changing his tone immediately to a much nicer and more passive one when confronting Ladybug. Of course, it may be due to the fact he’s talking to his crush but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

When Volpina said they are on a “romantic” date, he was quick to say it is not, but nervously changes to “but it could be” after receiving her glare. There’s also more subtle example which is also at the beginning of the episode where Lila was pulling him into the library and he looked like he isn’t too keen on the idea but not voicing it out. 

Then there’s also the thing with Chloe when she asked Chat Noir to do her work. He was clearly displeased by it but still helped her.

Point is, Adrien is very timid when it comes to others which is quite similar to Marinette at the very beginning before she met Alya and became Ladybug.

Both Adrien and Marinette are the kind to just roll with things and not voice out their opinions even when they are uncomfortable (Marinette is becoming less of this since Origins) and will only do so if they see injustice or someone being wronged or pushed to the limits (like when Adrien tried to secretly go to school due to loneliness).


As for the others, I’ll just do a quick run down.


They are both at the best of their league when it comes to “video games”. Marinette may be way better than Adrien, but it doesn’t dispute the fact that he’s the best among the boys and would have been first place if not for her.


Their best friend are the first friend they made at the beginning of the school year. Interestingly, there’s a bit of parallel here. Marinette’s best friend is the “new” girl at school, Alya. Meanwhile, Adrien is the “new” boy at school and Nino’s bestfriend. Also, it seemed that they don’t really have friends (excluding Chloe?) who would talk/hang out with them at school before: Adrien, for obvious reasons, and Marinette, for being unlucky I guess?


They are both great (if not the best) at the things they do. Simply put, they are multi-talented as shown throughout the episodes. Adrien is understandable as he fits the trope of popular boy who’s good at everything, while Marinette is the protagonist who can do things if she resolves herself into it. It’s to the point where you can question the “intro” and ask yourself, “Which part of her is a ‘normal’ girl like any other that leads a ‘normal’ life again?” She is friends with the most popular guy in their school/city, became esteemed employee/designer of the most famous singer, and win all contests she got herself into.


They are both charismatic and have qualities of a leader. They are shown both capable to rally the students and make them do something in case of an emergency situation. Marinette showed her charisma when they were trapped and lead others to escape in “Darkblade”, while Adrien was able to lead the scared and transformed students to help Ladybug and attack in “Reflekta” episode.


They both still have insecurities and underestimates themselves despite how awesome they actually are. I know that it’s supposed to have the audience relate to them and make the viewers think “I’m much more awesome than I think I am”, but see this: Adrien is actually the top placer, but seeing Marinette’s skill with video games suddenly made him feel that he sucks at it (well, either Marinette is just that good or Adrien doesn’t really think much of his video game skill). Marinette still thinks that Adrien will be disappointed in her if he finds out she is “Ladybug” despite all the accomplishments she had done as “Marinette”. Of course, we supposed to have humble heroes with silly to normal insecurities to make them more vulnerable and easy to relate for the audience.


They are both sweet children, but they can act really petty when jealous. For me, this pettiness is more for audience amusement and ship tease, but it also showed more their “human” side and this little bit of flaws makes it more interesting. I don’t need to mention what they did in Copy Cat, The Bubbler and Volpina, right?


They are both raised well and cherished by their loving parents. Yes, Adrien too. Despite the conflict he is having with his father right now, take note that it’s implied that his father is not usually so cold and distracted. Adrien said that his dad “changed” when his mom disappeared. So I guess they were a loving and happy family until the disappearance of Mrs. Agreste and Mr. Agreste who is already over-protective (he prefers Adrien to be home schooled after all), became even more strict. I wouldn’t have add these since it’s normal to have parents that love you and is not a trait these two strictly shares (their parents’ way of expressing love are different too) but not everyone has a good family. Unfavorable parents are as normal as good ones so hey, that counts… right?


They’re both popular? Ugh, I don’t feel like adding this since it’s too cliche of an answer but it’s still one of their similarities. I don’t need to explain Adrien’s popularity or Marinette’s popularity as “Ladybug”, but Marinette can be considered pretty popular if she is voted for Student Representative. And considering the deeds she had done at school, it wouldn’t be surprising if students think good of her and has great reputation. 


In conclusion, these two kids are great with lots of potential but both don’t really think that highly of themselves and thinks their hero counterparts are better. It’ll be great to see the two actually make each other realize how awesome they are and have them appreciate themselves better (like how Adrien/CN comforts Marinette/LB every time). I do hope there will be a reversal episode where Marinette/LB does the support this time for Adrien/CN.


Maybe there’s supposed to be more, but this post is pretty long now. If you think there’s more to add, feel free to reply and add it xD

Congratulations on figuring out right from the start that the troll quadrant system doesn't make any goddamn sense! I've always thought the quadrants were supposed to be the troll equivalent of human gender roles; in the sense that both are a thing that one race takes deadly seriously but the other finds utterly mistifying, and both turn out to be a meaningless, culturally imposed set of rules when you look at them close.

i mean, a lot of it does make sense, like how a lot of our own roles make sense

BUT

like with our own roles, the quadrants also seem to be held to an artificially rigid standard. like, i’ll totally believe that many reproducing trolls are true kismesis/matesprits, like how many reproducing humans are heterosexual

but theres an implied fluidity to it all that seems unnecessarily rigid, possibly resulting in psychological damage bc the already confusing systems are put into clearly delineated boxes that, yes, do change but there’s no “in-between” for them

like how with (western) humans, if you get married, you have to be in erotic love with each other, and to be even more socially acceptable, you have to be two (2) cisgender heterosexuals in erotic love, and must also be wanting to produce more humans. Platonic marriage doesn’t exist for us (despite how awesome and useful that would be), and homosexual marriage is lambasted for not being able to “correctly” produce a nuclear family

it’s complete horseshit and the rigid roles don’t do anything but constrain our society and produce cultural anxiety, even for the monogamous cisgender heterosexuals, but that’s where the western romance conventions have come to and we need to break out of it

and the quadrant system feels much the same way: based in instinctual truths, but solidified to absurd, anxiety-producing degrees when it might benefit the society to just let some things happen naturally. but, if they did that, then the current system they have in place of rigid hierarchy would collapse.

and im not saying that auspistices should be abolished in the troll world, they seem part of the instinctual process, but society also seems to try and force trolls to play out their roles, should they find themselves in a position to maybe perhaps kind of be one

and if trolls are forever trying to find perfect balance in the quadrants–which seems akin to the human concept of Happily Ever After in True Love–then a rigid system that delineates the what the ideal romances are, but doesnt allow for much exploration and grey areas, only makes finding balance that much more difficult and violent.

It’s That Time of Year Again!

MISFIT DAY!!!!!!!

That’s right - it’s back! Everyone’s favorite bouncing teen hero will be in the spotlight, Friday, 7 April.

It’s a day to celebrate all things Charlie: her enthusiasm, her determination, her delight at being a superhero, her struggles to fit in, to grow.

And we do that by sharing our favorite Misfit-centric stories - from comics or fanfics. By creating art, crafts, cosplay - whatever you want.  Right here! On Tumblr!

It’s open to everyone; all you need to do is tag your posts with ‘Misfit Day’, and I’ll reblog as they come in.
(Sending me a ‘Hey, I posted!’ note might not be a bad idea, though…you know how wonky Tumblr notifications can be.)

Each year, Misfit Day gets bigger and bigger, despite a lack of Charlie in current comics.
(Hey, we know how awesome she is, even the Powers That Be can’t see it!)

So let’s make this Misfit Day the best one yet.

25 Days of Outlander - Dec 18 - Scene That Really Surprised Me
Fuck the King.

10

I dig how Ban Ryu actually turned out to be the shiest, dorkiest cinnamon roll of the boys! Plus he is obviously all-round talented in sports but you can see that deep down he is basically a complete bookworm. In music and dancing he encountered something that made him feel like a fish out of water, he’s really bad at it, but instead of becoming dismissive of them, he throws himself in the practice sessions with the boys. And it makes me adore Ban Ryu even more because it shows that even if he lacks the talent he is a hard worker who despite the difficulties finds enjoyment in music. It’s awesome how he keeps jazzing to the beat even in the library and waltzing around the Hwarang halls. LOL!

And he totally blushes when Su Ho actually compliments him on his effort, turning into a bashful puppy.

I think that Maekjong and Ban Ryu are the ones who benefit the most from their experience in Hwarang. It hones Maekjong ablities as a monarch and ruler and helps him find allies while Ban Ryu is freed by the exprience - it brings him joy and happiness; but for both it’s finally an opportunity to find friends.

You know what’s so heartbreaking about this episode? It wasn’t the ending (despite how awesome it was), no– it was the very beginning where Corteo passes by and hears Angelo telling Nero that “starting today, I’ll be your brother”.

What’s so heartbreaking is when you realize that the flashback Corteo has is the exact same scene where he tells Angelo the same words back in episode 1: “Starting today, you and I are brothers. And we will always be.”

What’s so heartbreaking is when you realize the face Corteo makes afterwards is almost as if he’s thinking “maybe I was wrong”. That Angelo never really thought of him that way, that Corteo was the only one who honestly thought with all of his heart that those words were true.

What’s so heartbreaking is when you realize that Angelo is probably the only person Corteo has left in his life. That, after being gone for like 7 years, he is no longer the same Angelo he remembers him as, but instead, is someone who so deeply invested into his revenge that he’s slowly becoming just like the people he despises the most.

What’s so heartbreaking is when you realize that Corteo was just an ordinary boy who could have lived an ordinary life selling his liquor, who could have saved up, and could have gone to college like he always wanted. But instead he pushes his dreams aside to join the Mafia (something repeatedly mentioned that he hates) because Angelo asked him to.

Because Corteo wanted to help his best friend.

Nonpowered!AU - Tony's cat often sneaks using the emergency stairs to the apartment below and Tony's been feeling kinda jealous here, so he attaches a message on her collar to whoever's been bribing his cat with expensive cat treat. To his surprise, he got a reply and he began corresponding with the guy who turned out to be interesting and smart. One day there's a knock on his door and it's the mystery guy with his cat and an invitation to dinner. (and maybe there's kittens?)

A/N: Didn’t get the kittens, but I hope you still enjoy! - Taylor

You can also read this on Ao3!


“Jarvis!” Tony rattles the cat bell again and strides into the kitchen. “Here, kitty, kitty!” The expected jingle of Jarvis’s collar and the light click of his nails over the tile floor doesn’t come, and Tony’s frown deepens. It seems his cat’s snuck off yet again.

Resigned, Tony crosses to the east wall of his condo and heaves one of the windows open to reveal the fire escape. “Jarvis!” He calls again. For another moment, there’s no reply.

Then the metal stairs creak lightly and Tony grins at the sight of his cat trotting up them. “Hey bud,” he says as Jarvis jumps gracefully back into the apartment. “You’re giving me a complex here. I spend tens of dollars on cat toys and it’s still not good enough for you? What does that dude have that I don’t?”

Jarvis sniffs gracefully and proceeds to ignore Tony in favor of curling up in a patch of carpet warmed by the sun. Tony rolls his eyes and sits down at his drafting table. Rent’s not going to pay itself, after all.
