How Clarke Will Recognize Her Feelings For Bellamy
  • Roan: Oh hi, Clarke! How's the first half of my OTP doi-
  • Roan: Not much. He's just chillin' in Polis. Eating ice cream and watching the sunset. Probs thinking of you.
  • Clarke: You mean... he's not... hurt?
  • Roan: WHAT?! Clarke, you seriously think that I would hurt him?
  • Clarke: Um... Well... Yes... ?
  • Roan: Pfffttt... Nah. I want to see the two of you get married and spend the rest of your lives together with your adorable Bellarke children.
  • Clarke: ... What's a Bellarke?
  • Roan: You know... You, Bellamy...
  • Clarke: .........................
  • Roan: You seriously don't know?! You're like the only one at this point.
  • Echo: Ummm... I also don't know what a Bellarke is.
  • Roan: You wouldn't! You're a plot device to freak fans out and make them think that their OTP might not happen. But true Bellarkers know otherwise.
  • Raven, Jasper, Monty, Abby, Octavia- literally everyone else: It's true.
  • L.exa and Finn from their graves: Even we knew, Clarke.
  • Clarke: So... what you're saying is... Bellamy and I should be together?
  • Echo: Well, I mean not necessari-
  • Everyone else: YES!
  • Clarke: Huh... Now that you mention it that kinda makes sense. I look at him differently than I do the rest of my peeps.
  • Echo: You do?

If Pennywise is so desperate for scaring Gorgie then why doesn't he hurt him or threaten him? I mean, unless Gorgie is a massochist I don't think he wouldn't be afraid of someone (or something) that can hurt him...

Several reasons!
1. Penny is actually repulsed by Georgie’s fondness towards him, as I’ve mentioned before. It’s like Georgie is spoiled food. This kid is so far away from feeling fear towards Penny that he’s made himself basically inedible and actually pretty unpleasant to interact with for Penny because of it. 

2. Penny’s whole deal is based at least somewhat on belief. In the movie you can see this when Bill tells Richie that the scary/very scary/not scary at all doors aren’t real, and then Pennywise gets offended and says ‘am I not real enough for you?? I was real enough for Georgie >:U‘ This is because his scare factor is based largely on the person actually believing they’re being hunted or injured by a leper/creepy flute painting lady/mummy/giant bird/etc.
In Georgie’s case, he strongly believes that Penny is his friend and won’t hurt him because he is a tiny, pure, naive bean. Even if Penny threatened him or made some move to hurt him, Georgie wouldn’t believe Penny actually intended to hurt him, so he still wouldn’t be scared. 

Penny is very aware of all of this, which is why he’s so frustrated.

PQ! If we assume that R + L = J, then why didn't Ned tell Cat the truth? I feel like that would've saved Jon and Ned lot of emotional distress. The only reason I could think of for not telling her is that she might spill the beans (which i don't think likely because she loved Ned why would she tell his secrets?) or that it would bias the way she acted towards Jon and so the lie about Ned being his father wouldn't be as convincing, but that's a stretch.

There were probably multiple reasons; beyond the ones you mentioned, I’d add that Ned might’ve promised Lyanna that he’d never tell anyone, and of course that he went through a ton of trauma during this time period and clearly finds it extremely painful to even think about, let alone talk about. Plus, as I think we all know: once you get used to a lie, it gets easier and easier to keep telling it, and harder and harder to stop. 

anonymous asked:

Don't know if you've ever answered something along these lines (probably have) but what are your opinions on the shaytan and every other bad/evil creature mentioned in the Quran (and please don't answer if this in anyway sounds offensive I just want an opinion on it) but do you think that they are inherently evil because they were made that way ? Or is it all part of some larger plan? Because then wouldn't that mean that God knew they would be evil or are they simply filling a role ?

This is where knowledge of how Islam differs from other religions is important. I say this because many times we lump in the stories together.

For example, in the Old and New Testament, it is Eve who is at fault for the downfall of humanity. In The Qur’an, Adam and Eve both are at fault. That’s an important detail.

Most people believe that Satan is an “angel.” That is not true. Satan is a Jinn. Jinn have free will, like humans. Angels do not.

Satan was such a good Jinn that he reached the level of an Angel. Satan made the decision to rebel against God because he thought he was better by virtue of what he was made from–Adam was made from clay while Satan was made of fire–and so this isn’t about God’s creations being “made that way.”

God gives us the ability to choose. Evil is a choice, and that’s the problem with us.

We like to imagine evil as some essence that exists outside of us. We like to pretend that Pharoah was somehow essentially evil. Pharoah made the choice to believe he was a god. He made that choice. He was given the proof constantly. But he did not want to believe. That was his choice.

Choice is what we are judged upon by God, so evil is not an essence, it is a choice.

anonymous asked:

I think one problem that some people who had trouble with Nancy this season had wasn't that she left Steve so much as, she admitted to waiting for Jonathan for a month before going back to him. Which means their breakup wasn't so much a matter of "oh, I realize that we aren't compatible and I don't love you after all" as it was a matter of her knowing all along she wanted someone else and using him as a crutch so she wouldn't be alone, which is a shitty way to treat someone who cares about you.

I can see how some people could interpret it that way, but I don’t think Nancy was just using Steve as a crutch, I think she genuinely had feelings for him. You can clearly see it in all their scenes together, not to mention the scene at Christmas (which is a month after everything went down, so they had JUST gotten together). 

I also don’t think their breakup was a matter of “we aren’t compatible and I guess I don’t love you after all” it was more a matter of “I’m dealing with a lot of stuff I can’t handle and I’m trying to fake my way through this relationship like everything is okay but it isn’t”

Something that someone else pointed out on the post I made that I thought was pretty spot on too is that Nancy more than likely associates Steve with her guilt about Barb because it was her desire to be with Steve and dragging Barb to the party that night that she feels like ultimately lead to Barb’s death.

I don’t think Nancy is responsible for Barb’s death, I think that the evil murderous monster who killed Barb is responsible for Barb’s death, but Nancy clearly feels the guilt and the weight as if it’s 100% her fault, and her relationship with Steve is intrinsically tied to that event and everything that happened. I think having Steve with her when she went to dinner with Barb’s family made that even harder for her.

  • Seokjin: the smart thing to do is to just admit that I'm a better dancer than you are.
  • Namjoon: we're both equally hopeless.

You think Dan doing a mental health video will go over well? We don't know if he has a mental illness but he wouldn't make a video about something he doesn't know? I'm excited if he does put out a video about this topic but I'm not too excited because I know there will be backlash.

that boy is not a neurotypical. he wouldnt make a video over something that he has no knowledge over. i think this video is going to be wonderful and if people try to say “oh but dan is neurotypical bc he hasnt mentioned his issues before” i will fucking fight

anonymous asked:

So I was rereading your essay on Dirk and Rose being furries (love it, btw) and you mentioned that every other kid except Jane was also a furry. Would you mind telling us why that is? Jake's and Dave's evidence is pretty obvious, but I'm curious about the rest. I don't doubt it at all btw, in fact I think the reason I'm asking is because I think I noticed evidence for one of them and then promptly forgot, which annoyed me. So yeah, if you wouldn't mind enlightening me, I'd be very grateful.

I mean Jade is also pretty self-explanatory, so at this point we’re down to Roxy and John, right? Roxy is PRETTY FUCKING THRILLED to see the birth of Jasprose, and I can’t really see her talking to Jade about furries and not being super down to draw herself as a catgirl even if she hasn’t yet. 

I was almost about to admit there’s not actually THAT MUCH canon evidence of Roxy being a furry but then I remembered: She’s dating a snake girl. So yeah that ship sailed.

As for John, he literally bemoans his own lack of a furry alt-self in conversation with Rose.

So there I rest that case. 

Also while it’s true I’ve said Jane isn’t a furry I should stress that comes with an appended Yet, because really the girl already made a Trollsona. Just wait until Jade has a furry themed birthday, it’s just a matter of time.

And it is my personal conviction that all these different species are mutually furries to one another anyway, because like. They are.

im having a crisis because i don't know what my sexuality is. like i keep thinking "am i gay?" but then im like "if i really am gay, i wouldn't have to question it. i would just know, right?"

it is completely okay (not to mention 100% normal) to be unsure! don’t stress yourself out by pressuring or forcing yourself to have an ‘aha!’ moment. for a lot of people it takes time and it’s also completely valid to identify as whatever you’re comfortable with/what you think is right in the moment. your understanding of yourself can change over time, and if it feels impossible to be sure of yourself, that’s okay too

anonymous asked:

What struck me as odd with that being allowed to attend cons is that they never mentioned the wives missing them or vice versa. When you spend 9 months out of the year away from your significant other, wouldn't you want to spend as much time together as possible? I get wanting to raise a family outside of LA but still, you don't want to live together at all? Except on a weekend off and a little bit during the hiatus? Just seems like a lot of space for any family. LOL sorry for this randomness!

Hello, dear anon!

I apologise for the atrocious delay with my response. That seems to happen to me a lot these days. Thank you for having infinite patience with me!

I think I’ve heard both of the J’s mentioning missing their wives, usually in addition to missing their children as well. I cannot really take the former seriously because they have every resource required to be united with their families all year long, if they wish it. I don’t really think they do. I doubt the J’s would do well while being in the constant presence of their wives, but I do think they genuinely miss the children.

When you spend 9 months out of the year away from your significant other, wouldn’t you want to spend as much time together as possible? 

That’s just the thing. I think most people would go out of their way to spend time with their beloved whom they see so seldom. If their heterosexual marriages were legit, I would have been awfully concerned with the state they’ve been in for the last seven years. When you partner prefers the company of his “best friend” over yours that strongly, you’re bound to know something is up.

I can’t explain away this behaviour in any logically satisfactory way. The picture of two straight guys just looks so wrong. Looking at the J’s, I can only conclude that their priority is to be together as much as they possibly can. I can’t blame them at all - just look at how much they enjoy each other’s company. It’s chemistry and love far beyond the comprehension of a regular joe such as myself. I can’t even imagine judging them.

Again, thank you for having patience with my long response times! I hope this fresh, new week treats you well, sweet anon!

anonymous asked:

I watched a video that mentioned back in medieval times, in Europe, they would keep the princes away from the main royal castle, having them live elsewhere, so that way if invaders came, they wouldn't kill the heir. Do you think something like that could be the case with Lotor? I don't see Zarkon sheltering him, since that seems OOC, but maybe out of selfishness, so he had a backup plan or something like that.

Mostly, I feel like if anyone was actively cultivating Lotor as a backup plan, it would be Haggar. Zarkon is nothing if not brazenly assured of his own immortality (and, I suppose, not entirely without reason considering he’s been an active warlord for millennia) so I can’t imagine him cultivating or even really trying to preserve an heir.

It’s hard to say for sure why Lotor was conceived especially if he’s a fairly “recent” development- as in, in the 16-20′s range that the paladins are. I don’t think there was ever much intention of genuinely letting him ascend the throne, though.

anonymous asked:

It is canon that Gellert and Albus never mentioned their friendship to anyone else during their time apart. I can understand why Albus never did, but what about Gellert? If Albus really didn't mean anything to Gellert aside from a valuable asset (as JKR had claimed) I don't see why he wouldn't use this to his advantage or at least mention how he almost successfully exploited someone as powerful as Albus to his followers. What do you think of this?

So I’ll start off by saying that JKR can say that Gellert only viewed Albus as an asset all she wants, but it doesn’t give the character the justice he deserves. Jo might as well be under the same delusion that Gellert put himself under. It seems to me that he cared deeply for Albus, at least by the end of his life. Jo even hints at it herself.

‘“Grindelwald tried to stop Voldemort going after the wand. He lied, you know, pretended he had never had it.”

Dumbledore nodded, looking down at his lap, tears still glittering on the crooked nose.

“They say he showed remorse in later years, alone in his cell at Nurmengard. I hope that it is true. I would like to think he did feel the horror and shame of what he had done. Perhaps that lie to Voldemort was his attempt to make amends… to prevent Voldemort from taking the Hallow…”

“… or maybe from breaking into your tomb?” suggested Harry, and Dumbledore dabbed at his eyes.’  (Deathly Hallows)

So, as you see, it is not cut and dry that Gellert held no feelings for Albus and it is not even confirmed canon that he wasn’t in love with Albus. 

All we know from canon is that Gellert showed some semblance for affection for Albus in his youth in attempt to use him as an asset and that he did not truly feel at that time. He manipulated Albus for his ideas and intellectual worth. Not only does that leave a lot of room for interpretation about Gellert’s remorse arc but also I still hold on to the idea that Gellert lied to himself and JKR bought into the lie (I know I am getting a little petty here, but I think it’s fair to say that I have given these characters enough to time to get righteous.)

The point that I wont really dwell on, as it is irrelevant to the question is that feelings change. Even if Gellert used Albus as an asset and truly had no feelings for him at the time, he could still see his worth as a companion, an equal, a friend and/or a lover by the end of his life. 

Secondly, Gellert didn’t tell anyone about Albus because he would have to admit that he had failed in that conquest and face the shame of Ariana’s death. In an earlier ask, I went into how both Gellert and Albus are wonderful at deceiving themselves. As it so happens, both men are also fantastic at deceiving those around them. Politically, mentioning his relationship with Albus would be a bad move in gaining followers. Emotionally, it would mean slowing the entire train of an empire in the making to a halt and having to face shame, pain, guilt, love and myriad of other emotions that Gellert had buried in order to drive his position forward.

anonymous asked:

I don't wanna be THAT person but by the time this episode was filmed, episode 2x07 probably didn't even air yet. Also, Magnus was traumatized so it makes sense why Alec wouldn't try to hug him or anything. I don't agree with the amount of screen time, but there's a good reason why there wouldn't be a lot of intimacy.

Yeah, I already mentioned this a few times, Anon. When 2x07 aired, they already had filmed this episode. I think “changes” would maybe be visible (you know what I mean) from episode 2x14 on because that’s what they were filming at the time.

And really, I am trying to calm down now. I understand that Alec probably just feels fucking helpless what to say or what to do actually. Not sure if touching Magnus is the right thing and all. I mean he has NO idea or can even imagine what Magnus just went through. I get that. But I am still hating how they cut off that scene and went to C/limon again. And as realisitic as this scene might be, you can’t be surprised that the Malec fandom just feels played again. Like… we’ve been here before….

anonymous asked:

Excuse me please do not blame an attack on Islam when there is no evidence that it was a Muslim. Second of all if this was done by a so called Muslim they wouldn't be classed as a Muslim by Islam because in Islam you are not allowed to kill people especially innocent people. There are so many muslims living in this world and if every Muslim was as violent as you think we all would be dead. Don't generalise hate against groups because in every group there are good and bad people.

Excuse me, I didn’t even mention the words ‘Muslim’ or ‘Islam’ once, because nothing has been confirmed.

Second of all, you’re an idiot if you kid yourself into thinking the PC-approved, multiculti fandom definition of Islam to be the single true one.

Islam has enough angles that can be used to justify the murder of what you see as innocent people. You have no place to dictate what millions of Muslims see as the true interpretation.

Yes, I said MILLIONS. If estimates of Muslims that fit our idea of ‘radical’ range from around 10% to 25%, that would be a minority large enough to compare to the entire US population.

anonymous asked:

Do you think Phil will feel pressured or think about making some changes as well? Dan has changed now his hair, his branding and their...I mean his bedroom. Phil was actually surprised people expected him to change his bedroom and Dan has teased him about having an outdated hair. I don't think anyone has mentioned rebranding, though. Personally I would like a hairstyle that wouldn't cover so much his hair.

I wouldn’t expect as much change from Phil, but alternately if Phil does decide to change things up I wouldn’t expect him to make as big a deal about it as Dan has his change. Mostly because I don’t think Phil has at all the personal association with AmazingPhil that Dan is danisnotonfire. 

danisnotonfire to Dan was something weighing him down and a constant reminder of things he seems to not want to associate with himself. Dan wants, I think, to feel like he’s more allowed to do and say and be certain things and to be validated based on those newer things. In a way he’s saying, “Judge me, but judge me based on this person I am now, not that person I was.”

I don’t think Phil wants us to judge him at all. He doesn’t want us to validate him, he doesn’t have that same drive Dan does to be seen a certain way. In that regard, he has no motivation to move on from AmazingPhil to a more “authentic” self in such a pointed way. Right now, AmazingPhil works as a very handy and flexible shield for him. He’s free to change and adapt his behavior (as he has been doing since last last year, pretty obviously) to what makes him more comfortable but we aren’t holding him to some kind of weird new year’s eve type of resolution to Be Someone Different from now on - and I don’t think he’d ever want us to. 

So yeah, he might get a bit of pressure from people but I don’t think the pressure is going to sink in. And if he does end up with a new hairstyle or opting for his full name more than his screenname, I imagine it’ll happen in a quiet lull inbetween activity with much less fanfare on his part.

1) I love your Legends headcanons so much! I've been dying of laughter for the past two hours reading through them all. 2) Autistic Ray! Hell yes, I am 100% here for that! (I'm autistic myself, and I don't know how I didn't think of it before, it's such a Good headcanon.) So, if you wouldn't mind, I'd love to hear ALL your headcanons on the subject. :)

Hey first of all, it’s really awesome to hear that you dig autistic Ray, because as a person who is not autistic I’ve worried a lot that I’m overstepping my boundaries in some way with those particular headcanons. So your appreciation is appreciated! 

Anyway, Some Headcanons:

  • I mentioned in another post that clicking pens is Ray’s #1 stim. He does it mostly when he’s stressed, or frustrated with a problem that he can’t work out. He’s really particular about his pens; they’ve got to have the PERFECT texture and weight in his hand. Given Ray’s questionable organization, he loses them fairly often, which is always a downer. (Or, you know, sometimes Jax and Martin borrow them for transmutation practice. That also sucks.)
  • He also keeps a lot of little rubber bouncy balls around his workspace for when he needs the focus. The feelings of rolling them around in his hands, the smooth texture between his fingers, really helps him gather his thoughts.
  • Ray can not and will not tolerate the texture of oranges or anything with a texture remotely similar to oranges.
  • Like tbh the fastest way to make Ray completely lose his appetite in general is Unexpected Textures. Which bites him in the ass a lot, since he mostly subsists on microwavable food, which isn’t exactly known for being well-cooked and consistent. 
  • Ray really doesn’t love working or exercising with music. It clutters his brain and distracts him. Not good, because his work is complicated enough as it is, and his workouts are very structured. He’ll tolerate it, especially for other people’s sake, but that usually results in Ray standing dead still unable to focus on anything but the words of the song that’s one.
  • Ditto the TV, radio, etc.
  • Back when he was a billionaire CEO instead of a time travelling superhero, business meetings were his least favorite part of the job. He’d spend days memorizing exactly what he was going to say and how to say it, trying to find exactly the right tone and hand gestures to win people over. He was always so so happy when they went well, but missing even the tiniest part would leave him in a bad mood for the rest of the day.
  • Ray tries so SO hard to read people, but he misses so many little cues, especially when it comes to him making people uncomfortable/upsetting them/overwhelming them. We see that a lot in his early relationship with Felicity, I think. It was very rehearsed, kind of pushy, just generally Too Much, but he was so unaware.
  • Or like in his romantic gestures, the way he just up and got Felicity like a billion dollars in fancy clothes and jewelry, or the time on the Flash when he rented out an entire restaurant for a double date. That’s Romantic, right? Why do you look so alarmed? 
  • I think Felicity is a huge help to Ray, though. She’s the only one of his friends who outright tells him when he’s accidentally been insensitive (“Not good.” “How not good?” “Really not good.”) and will forcibly get him to take a break from work when he’s thrown his sleeping pattern off again. She’s a lot more patient with him than most people are.
