I didn’t get to briefly talk about the Power Rangers movie last night since I came home super late, but I’ll just say that I ended up enjoying it and I’m glad that it was good. I thought that the characters here were well written for the most part, and tone was balanced decently throughout, including some genuinely funny moments that got a chuckle out of me. I loved that we got some backstory in the movie as well, it was one of the best parts of the film for me.
One thing I did notice, was that in the trailers Jason and Kimberly started making out. This does NOT happen in the movie at all, and I’m seriously glad it didn’t because having an unnecessary romance subplot would have dragged this down. Kudos for not going that route and focusing on what matters.
I don’t want to spoil too much else (outside of what I mentioned here), but I have hopes for the potential sequel to this film after enjoying this movie.
I want Keith to notice something’s up with Lance. I want him to notice how Lance’s eyes don’t light up nearly as bright anymore as they did before, how his smiles seem strained and fake, like he’s putting up a mask for everyone else’s benefit.
I want Keith to find Lance one late night back in the control room looking at the map of stars and somewhere in there is earth.
I want them to talk and eventually Lance starts pouring out his insecurities.
And all the while Keith is just looking at him confused and he interrupts Lance and starts spilling out about how great Lance is, and how he really is the team’s sharpshooter and pretty much the heart of their team and if it wasn’t for him none of them would be where they are now with Voltron and a family and just…everything.
And he doesn’t realize he’s gone off on a tangent until he stops and his breathing is labored and he realizes it’s gone quiet and the overdue anxiety comes back tenfold as he realizes Lance is silent.
He chances a look up to see Lance with eyes shining and watery and he could’ve sworn he saw a blush across his cheeks too but he’s not given a second glance before he turns away, face burning, hoping what he just said didn’t ruin whatever tentative friendship they had before.
And he’s pretty sure his face is burning when he feels soft lips press against his cheek and hear a small thank you and Lance is leaving the room quickly with his shoulders hunched and fists clenched in embarrassment. And Keith is just sitting there definitely sure his face is the same color as his lion but he holds up fingers to press against the spot where Lance kissed and before he knows it he’s up and running to catch up with Lance.
OKAY BUT WHAT WAS REALLY ICONIC ABOUT THE SEASON WAS WHEN ALLURA PRAISED HUNK FOR GOING ON A MISSION WITH KEITH AND THE FIRST THING HE SAYS IS
“allura, keith was there too”
LIKE HUNK WAS NOT HERE FOR ANY OF THAT AND I WAS REALLY HAPPY WHY DID NO ONE ELSE TRY TO SAY ANYTHING WHEN ALLURA WAS BEING SALTY ABOUT GALRA KEITH LIKE SHE 100% HAD A REASON BUT YOU WOULD THINK IDK SHIRO OR SOMEONE WOULD LIKE NOTICE OR STEP IN OR SOMETHING TO TRY AND CONVINCE HER THAT KEITH WAS JUST KEITH Y’KNOW????? IM
*drinks water* (did someone posted about this before?)
I know some of you already saw the official manga art (top image) and noticed that Chuuya is the only one alongside with Fukuzawa and Mori that is on the upside down position but I noticed something else…
We can see the others with their masks EXCEPT Dazai who is facing his back and of course just as I said Chuuya is also on another different angle, the only one among the smaller “puppets”. Let me think that Fukuzawa and Mori are on the upside down because they’ve already fallen on Fyodor’s trap which is the truth as of now. They already fell so there is no need for the strings unlike the others. But Chuuya on the other hand is still on the process of “falling” and what’s worrisome is Dazai is facing his back.
My conclusion: Its like telling that Chuuya will “fall” (corruption) and Dazai isnt there (facing his back) to save him..thefore supporting the other theory of Fyodor making Chuuya to use corruption without Dazai..and we all know what will happen if ever-
These are some common reasons why wards, even powerful ones, fail at times. I have noticed these over the years, through my mistakes and others.
…The Ceiling. Did you remember to ward your ceiling? It doesn’t matter how powerful the walls are if an entity can just jump over it.
…The Floor. Also doesn’t matter how strong the walls are if the entity can just dig under it.
A Circle Doesn’t Fit Into A Square: Does the shape of the ward match the room you are in? While a circle is the most stable when standalone, not clinging to anything else, it’s still weaker than something tied to something physical- such as the walls, floors, and ceilings of your space. Thus, even the best spherical ward will still fade out much quicker than something tied to the physical structure of your house. Additionally, having a circle in your (most likely) square-ish shaped room will leave certain corners without protection; you want the intruder to be kept out of your house in the first place, not just certain parts of it.
The Corners, Edges, Etc: Building on the previous point, even when the ward is tied to the physical structure of the house, many people don’t pay attention to the corners or edges where the ward bends- this is often where the ward is usually weakest. You want to double check that the ward is solid on those portions and maybe even visualize something tougher holding it together there, as the bending usually makes it more fragile near those certain points.
You saw him walking in the crowd that you were part of,
He was holding that green glass in his hand and walked so
gracefully. ‘He really was born to be a king’, you thought to yourself.
Just when you were about to give in the daydreaming you saw
him standing right in front of you. In fact, he stood so close. Your heart
started beating so fast, you tried to avoid looking in his eyes and while you
did that you noticed that everyone else around you were bowing down, lowering
their heads, showing respect to their king… everyone except you.
You thought this was the end of you, but you tried to fix
this. You lowered your head and bowed lightly. You felt cold fingers underneath
You swallowed nervously but gathered some strength to look
He liked to smile and loves to steal them, he enjoyed affection and knew to be affectionate, he saw the good in people, but they did not understand, he wanted to be noticed, but no one saw, he always hurt, but no one cared he was just someone else, among the billions.
So one of the most brilliant parts of “The Creeping
Shadow” was Quill Kipps receiving the Orpheus Society’s ‘prototype’ goggles.
And as we know, he was (adorkably) rather excited upon finding out they actually
worked and used every spare moment he could to see the spirits lurking around
So, did anyone notice that after Steve Rotwell’s visit, in
the next chapter when Kipp’s is describing the ghosts he was seeing, he pointed
out one haunting that Ithought was
‘And there!’ Kipps rotated, squinting through the goggles. ‘Two
cloaked figures on the green. They’re standing close together, hoods down
huddled like they’re sheltering from the cold. Ghost-fog’s rising from their
capes. Now they’re breaking into a run…..They’re gone!….’
Upon first reading this, the capes he described brought
to mind Lockwood’s parents’ Spirit Capes. Later however, when Lucy and
Lockwood are, unknowingly, on the Other Side and begin to discover they haven’t
made it back to the human world, their actions begin to mirror what Kipps addressed
‘As one we began to run. We pressed close together, hoods
low over our faces against the cold. We cut across the green, boots thrumming on
the hollow, frozen earth. Smoke poured from our icy capes, extending behind us
like a comet’s tail.’
The sheltering from the cold, the smoking of the capes and the running across the green all match with Kipp’s earlier sighting!
As we know in the Lockwood and Co. universe, and as recently reinforced
in “The Creeping Shadow”, the Talent that the children possess actually
allows them to, essentially, enter the parallel land of the dead.
When they utilise these gifts they connect with the world of spirits, however
this travelling is less immersive and dangerous compared to Lucy and Lockwood’s
accidental arrival through the Iron Chain. All of this is told to Lucy by the
‘You sense the other world all the time – you’ve always had
glimpses of it…’
We’ve also addressed in “The Hollow Boy” George’s ‘time
sickness’ theory and his hypothesising and affirmation of Lucy’s question at
the end of the third book, that yes, it is possible for ghosts to show both past, present and future. This reiterates the idea that time, for the children using Talents and
the spirits that are haunting them, is circular.
‘They’re fixed in a particular place, but able to roam back
and forwards across the years. If you follow that argument, why couldn’t they
make predictions? Why shouldn’t they see things we don’t?’
So yeah, I definitely think Kipps had a prophetic
sighting of what was going to happen to Lucy and Lockwood hours before they actually
ventured into the ‘place of blood’ or Rotwell facility and then later on with the Iron Chain
to the Other Side.
Anyone else notice this?
p.s after lurking the Lockwood and Co. tags for like 3
years, I have finally decided to make a Tumblr account to share stuff like
this and be involved with the fandom before the last book comes out, so hi.
Everything sucks. I hate to be a major Debbie Downer but I can’t help it when your best friend basically turns into an evil ice queen and you’re forced to fight her. Coincided with the fact that Barry basically caused Dante’s death from Flashpoint…. So, yeah. Things have been less than ideal for me.
I think H.R. was noticing and sick of me emotionally eating Oreo’s so he invited me to a Central City Diamonds game. I was not on board for the distraction. One: that’s something Dante and I used to do. Two: H.R. Enough said. But he annoyed me enough to agree.
With the help from his face modifier, H.R. was able to step out into the daylight as someone else. I have to say it made him seem less annoying talking to someone without the face of Harrison Wells. We did it up at the game – hot dogs, beers, nachos, I even splurged and got a foam finger, which H.R. eventually took. To make it even better, the diamonds dominated in the game. Winning!
H.R. then insisted I take him to an Earth-1 pub for a nightcap. Without thinking we headed to McConnor’s Pub – one of my favorite joints that has some of the best I.P.A.’s out there. But what I forgot was it was also my brother’s favorite spot. I told myself that I would chug my drink and get the hell out of there. H.R. had different plans – he insisted on playing every billiards game they had since they don’t have them on Earth-19. Soon, hours passed and I found myself forgetting about the pain of Dante. In the end, I actually appreciated H.R.’s gesture and his attempt to make me feel like myself again…just don’t tell him that.
