do what others wont

THEORY TIME RETURNS

i got some predictions!! woo!!!! ok here we go:

ozzie and eddie start out the episode by just having a freaking shouting match, complaining about how much they hate each other and how they wish the other one was dead probably. maybe we get an accidental admittance of like “i never wanted you to die but youve hurt me too much now and its unforgivable” bc you gotta love those spur of the moment ‘didnt mean to say that’ moments. 

so eventually after a whole bunch of shouting and pouting they finally decide to tolerate each other at the very least, since it seems like theyre in this for the long haul. they finally come to the decision that they cant get out on their own and grudgingly agree to work together to escape

eddie decides to do what he does best: be annoying. he gets the attention of the guards somehow, leading to figure A of him laughing here:

seems like hes hammin it up again, bein all dramatic as he’s so wont to do. 

but so…

im thinking, maybe he and ozzie are faking my wonderful penguins death? i mean, the guards can probably find out pretty easily that they want to freaking murder each other; it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch for them to believe that eddie somehow killed oz when theyre 3 feet apart. 

and that leads to figure B:

one mr oswald cobblepot laying on the ground looking schemey or… something.

theory: ed pretends to kill oswald, gets the guards attention through being his awful over the top wonderful riddler self, and somehow manipulates them into opening the cage to check on ozzie - at which point our favorite bird probably rips their throat out or something.

so at this point ozzie’s free but you know who’s not? eddie boy of course. which means oz has to agree to let him out of his cage (and hes been doin just fine), because theyre definitely both out and about together later in the episode. so ed probably has to convince oz to open the door please. maybe he finally starts being nice to him again and promises not to try to kill him anymore. maybe theres a temporary cease fire, so they can both get out alive then kill each other on their own terms.

anyway, ozzie lets ed out and they go on a lowkey super sneaky rampage around the court of owls compound, killing whoever they find on the way (which will of course be tons of fun for the whole family). this might be where figure C comes in, but also who really knows:

then they probably get discovered and surrounded at this point, leading to….

figure D:

theyre obviously angry here, and definitely shouting at someone. whom, you might ask? no clue. my prediction is that the court finally realizes these two idiots are loose and they end up getting surrounded, leading to ozzie ranting to the entirety of the court of owls in great detail about just how hes going to make them pay. theyre probably in some amount of trouble, considering mister green flamingo man even looks pretty somber. ((note: where even is this. are they even on court territory anymore))

so how do they get out of this?? enter deus ex machina: fish mooney.

ok ok thats unlikely (but it’s my one wish that the queen returns to save both of their sorry behinds). either way, someone else probably shows up to save them (maybe ivy, maybe ozzies whole mini army, maybe jimbo and co. who knows. 

anyway, they most likely escape somehow and so begins the plot of literally every single character in gotham vs the court of owls.

also anyway, im probably completely wrong! but this is my best guess as of right now so i guess we’ll see next monday 🐧❔

Don’t ever let them tell you that you’re too stupid to do something. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy for you. Maybe you’re going to have to work for it a little harder than other people, which I know isn’t fair. But that doesn’t mean you should just give up.

messy usopp and sanji doodle for @opshadowships week !!

usopps showing his fave cook his fantastic art and sanji is v impressed

@lethalsting ;  —  “Oh so you are the one who will take care of me, eh? Soul Society actually has some pretty women, even tho’ … you might be just a child,”  he uttered, chuckling quietly. The war was over, though some things still had to be repaired and for once he was actually allowed to go around here, but since he was in the end still an Arrancar  ( a Hollow, forever their enemy ), someone had to watch out that he would not do anything stupid, cause trouble. And apparently it was her job now, gotten the order right from the headcaptain. Basically babysitting

So thinking about my comic project, I guess (since I’m a perfectionistic little shit and I’m redoing this thing again) I’m gonna delete the blog I have for it already, and then I’m gonna make a sideblog that’s just for concept art/doodles, character profiles, worldbuilding, etc. And I guess it’ll help me introduce my work to people and build up a fan base. Hopefully. I know this kind of xenofiction is kind of niche, so that might be a little difficult but it’s worth a shot right? But anyway, yeah, I think that’ll be the plan.

Above are 10 rejection letters to various creative individuals who kept at it to achieve their dreams:

1. Madonna

2. Tim Burton

3. Andy Warhhol

4. U2

5. Kurt Vonnegut

6. Silvia Plath

7. Gertrude Stein

8. Jim Lee

9. Stieg Larsson

10. Edgar Rice Burroughs


11. Others didn’t save their letters, but they’ll never forget the words that fueled their success…

Walt Disney - Fired from the Kansas City Star in 1919 because he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.”

JK Rowling - Rejected by dozens, including HarperCollins, when a small publisher in London took a chance on Harry Potter.

Oprah Winfey - Fired as an evening news reporter of Baltimore’s WJZ-TV because she couldn’t separate her emotions from her stories.

George Orwell - A publisher turned down his legendary novel, Animal Farm, with the words “It is impossible to sell animal stories in the USA”.

Jerry Seinfeld - Didn’t find out he was cut from a minor role on a sitcom until he read the script and discovered his part missing.

Elvis Presley - After a performance in Nashville early in his career, he was told by a manager that he was better off driving trucks in Memphis (his previous job).

Steve Jobs - Fired from the company he started, Apple, but was desperately brought back in 1997 to save it. Apple is now the most valuable company in the world.

Stephen King - His first book, Carrie, was rejected thirty times. He nearly threw the book out when his wife saved it from the trash and encouraged him to keep trying.

Marilyn Monroe - At the start of her storied modeling and acting career, she was told she should consider becoming a secretary.

Abraham Lincoln - Demoted from Captain to Private during war, failed as a businessman, and lost several times as a political candidate before becoming President.

The list would never end because no one has ever won without first experiencing many failures and rejections.  We can choose to learn from these lessons, or let them destroy our spirit. The ones who ultimately succeed are those who never, ever stop trying. Share this list and inspire others to keep chasing their dreams!

 

You know what disappoints me most about the bioware fandom

The utter amount of unnecessary hate they give to the creators and to the games they play. Dragon Age fans especially.

You complain about the story, about the romances, about how things were ‘so close to being perfect’ or how ‘this is questionably problematic therefore the games are problematic’. You complain about literally everything you can complain about but you know what. 

How many games have progressively become more and more open about gay and bisexual relationships in a realistic fashion? How many game creators actually research them, the way bioware does? Or tries their hardest to accommodate their fans, their wants, and their needs. How many companies would make a character that was considered ‘controversial’ (krem), and take the backlash for it simply because a fan made them want to give them something to see themselves in. 

They’re not perfect, sometimes they do something you don’t agree with and they may not always treat your favorite characters the way you want them to be treated but how many companies do you know that actually CARE? I’m not saying you can’t complain about something that makes you upset, or say you’re disappointed with how something played out but if you’re seriously going to tell me you hate bioware and the people who work for them because they aren’t always releasing EXACTLY what you want then you need to reevaluate yourself because they’re doing a damn better job then most companies. 

I’ve been following bioware since I was a kid, playing their games since baldur’s gate and KOTOR and they’ve grown SO much and they still have so far to go, and will continue to take backlash from both fans and other companies because they do what other companies wont so at least try to understand that. 

Booth and Brennan have been together for almost as long as we saw them not together. And in that time, how many times have we watched them break up?

0. Nada. Big fat goose egg

Have they been tested? Absolutely! They’ve been to hell and back together, but it’s never broken them apart. Be it Booth’s relapse or Brennan going on the run or everything else they’ve been through, they always survive and they always comeback to each other. No matter what happens, Booth and Brennan are a unit.

So thank you writers; thank you for not doing what so many other shows are wont to do. Thank you for giving us loving, adult relationship, and thank you for never letting them split up for the sake of “drama”.

     ”—— I saw a fire start once in India. One second, it was only a spark lost from a beggar’s fire, caught on a high wind. Within minutes, everything in sight was ablaze, thatched roofs crackling like so much dry kindling, mothers scurrying into the streets, carrying crying children.”

     ”This is how fires start. With a spark. And I see the sparks catching wind…”

day three of @beyondthebridge‘s 12 days of christmas

It takes barely a second;

Aaron says I love you, please just go. 

Robert refuses, denies, can’t think about doing so. He doesn’t know when things changed, doesn’t even remember slipping from nothing to me to i’d die here with you. It’s a natural progression. A beat. Barely a skip of his pulse. Aaron’s become everything, becomes it

Robert can’t leave, won’t leave. He dives underwater, Aaron still trapped. It feels like an exercise in futility to keep trying. Robert does anyway because it’s the only thing he can do. 

It takes barely a second;

He comes up for air, pauses. 

His lungs scream, his chest aches, he can’t do this for much longer, but.

Aaron needs him to keep going. Trapped and vulnerable, Aaron’s not even trying anymore so Robert has to. The alternative scares Robert. Aaron will die, and then Robert will die too. Maybe not right away, maybe he’ll even fake it, but he’ll die. Without Aaron -

It takes barely a second; 

Robert dives back underwater, tears at the steering column and thinks please, whoever’s listening, please. He’s not the praying kind of guy, not really, but in this he can make an exception. For Aaron, he’ll always make an exception. 

It takes barely a second;

The steering column gives.

it really just makes me so uncomfortable when ppl blame snow for regina’s marriage to king leopold

and say snow wanted regina as some kind of property?

like some toy????

like, did you watch stable boy?

at all?

any of it?

snow thought regina was going to marry daniel when she was getting fitted for that wedding dress

regina told her that daniel left and that she was going to marry her father

she only. ever. wanted. regina. to. be. happy.

she told cora about daniel so that regina wouldn’t lose her mother

like snow lost hers.

because a ten year old wouldn’t know

that cora was a murderer

i get ppl who hate on snow, i get that she’s portrayed as annoying and dumb at times, and i support people not liking her.

but blaming a child for something that cora had purposely made happen 

by her own hand 

from step one.

and this idea that it only happened because snow wanted a toy.

that’s kinda fucked.
