In June 1966, the Apollo 1 crew practices water egress procedures with a full scale boilerplate model of the spacecraft.  In the water at right are astronauts Ed White and Roger Caffee. In the raft near the spacecraft is Gus Grissom.  NASA swimmers are in the water to assist in the practice session that took place at Ellington AFT near the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, TX.  On January 27th, 1967, the crew perished during a fire aboard the craft during launch rehearsal.

Okay. You dont know how much I hurt for Will when we see him again, 3 years later after Digestivo.

The guy is still fcuking trying so hard to move on from THAT. And the fact that Will is still trying so hard to move on speaks how strong he can still feel the pull even after 3 fcuking years later with a wife and a kid and a new house and a life free from the FBI. He is still actively fighting all of it.

The guy didnt let Jack in his house, despite the freezing cold and despite the fact the guy still values his relationship with Jack, enough to listen to him even though the guy didnt want to talk about the murders at all. Will could have drove Jack away and not talk to him at all. Instead, he was “I can’t just shoo you away so let’s hear it anyway.” But not in his house where the guy could not bear to hear the echoes of his and Jack’s voices talking about murders and serial killers bouncing in the spaces his whole new life is built around (because it sure hell will bounce like crazy). Jack and his cases are tainted with thoughts of Hannibal, the guy would not NOT be reminded of Hannibal and the past life he’s trying so hard not to think anymore.

The guy didnt go fishing with his wife and kid. 

Instead, he stayed at home to fix a door. 

We are talking about a guy who used to have a deskspace dedicated for crafting his own lures, near his bed. Heck the guy was a fcuking fly fisherman and he was good at it! But the guy could not bear to share that outdoor activity he loves/loved with his new family without being reminded of Abigail, his murder-daughter who was given and then taken away by Hannibal, 

It was only in his memory palace but he sure is fcuking so happy about the idea, look at that face. Im not crying, you are.

When we see him 3 years later, Dear Will has not been able to put the past behind him at all. He’s still at that stage where reminders can take him back to the past as if he’s still living in it. Emotions are still attached to those thoughts and memories, and Will still feels those emotions strongly.

And what makes this hurt more is the fact that Hannibal made it sure just so. 

The moment Hannibal surrendered, all of Will’s plans of moving on were screwed. Will can change his life completely, new house, a happily married life, new things and activities to occupy his mind and time BUT Will would not be able to completely not think about Hannibal when (1) he still hears what’s going on with Hannibal, and (2) he can’t completely avoid it.

With Hannibal’s arrest:

1. Hannibal will be all over the news

In this way, Hannibal is still in Will’s fcuking face, unless Will decides to move to a remote area or island. But we know that didnt happen

2. There will be trial, in which Will will be very likely dragged into. Oh yes he certainly was.

3. More Hannibal will be on the news. 

You see? The news will be covering his arrest, his stay at bshci, his trial, after the trial — the Chesapeake Ripper is caught and that is sensational my friends, the media will follow him and will talk about him for g-d knows how long. 

How long, you say? Looks like Hannibal’s trial was a thing for all 3 years?? 

Poor Will. And the fact that Will’s visit made it cover story worthy means Hannibal the Cannibal is still relevant after 3 years since his arrest, i mean surrender.

Hannibal knows Will’s recipe for moving on — time, new environment, new people, not knowing what’s up with your ex Hannibal. Will may not be able to forget but these ingredients will gradually dull his feelings until they are no more. Someday, it’ll all be nothing but just memories for Will. And Hannibal knows that him leaving, just as Will wanted him to, will ensurely make that happen. 

So what’s Hannibal’s plan? Get in Will’s face and make sure he wont be able to entirely escape it. 
Keep dear Will emotionally attached with memories of you.

You tried so hard Will but Hannibal knows so much about how your mind works.

Okay, about the fishing

My sorry ass managed to look away from Hugh Dancy’s glorious face only now in my Nth rewatch and see the thing past him

Wait. What is that golden circle thing behind him. Looks familiar…

And in a different angle… pardon the dumb quality, no giffing tools for me so if you want it clearer i suggest to go back to this scene in that episode.

Yes, it IS that fishing gear the guy has  

— this magnifying glass.

Because his fishing gear isnt out of sight and boxed up, it does seem Will was still fishing! 

HOWEVER this does not guarantee or say with absolute certainty that Will DID NOT stop fishing. (i mean, for all we know, he could have just put it on display or something but not really using it, or maybe it could be Molly’s. The woman CAN fish at the very least so…)

What it tells us is that there is possibility Will was still fishing.

HOWEVER this does not change the fact that Will chose not to go fishing with his wife and kid on that day.

  • Because for some reason, Will needs or wants to be alone? 
  • Or because fishing with his wife and kid family that day isn’t ‘good’ for him since it reminds him of his murder daughter Abigail?

A lot of things could be on his mind then since what does he do when he wants to quiet his thoughts? He fixes stuff. What are those things that could be on his mind?

Maybe Hannibal’s note just came in and somehow he feels like it’s something to do with those peculiar murders in Chicago and Buffalo he had been reading about? Wait, so does that entail that Will somehow knew Jack will pay him a visit about the murders any day by then??? Or maybe even on that exact day because he knows Jack knows what’s in Hannibal’s note since the fbi 'screens’ the ingress and egress of Hannibal’s parcels? Another possible reason why Will chose not leave the house that day????Woah, no i am not looking more into that or i will digress

Whichever the case may be why Will chose not to go fishing with his wife and kid that day, he was trying to 'stay away’ from the memories of Hannibal the past he left behind, coming back to haunt him.

Nor should one imprison the demons, who are everywhere, by shutting the doors and windows of a house tightly. Their paths of ingress and egress are prescribed, along with their functions, and to impede their freedom of movement is to invite their displeasure. Far wiser is it to pierce a small hole in door or window and thus enable them to move about freely.

just…make a cat door for your demon

one of my favourite little adventure time things is that finn and jake are allowed to be affectionate with each other, to display those softer emotions.

lotsa media has brothers (and boys/men in general) being aggressive to each other, always fighting and even if they get on, they act like they don’t? because media portrays showing emotions (particularly kind hearted ones, and even sadder ones (everything besides a limited spectrum of anger)) as being “un masculine”

but finn and jake are much more real. they show those softer sides, especially at moments when they would be shown as tough and brave and above all manly if this were any other show.

they hold hands when they’re scared, they tell each other they love each other in moments of great peril. god, that moment in “hall of egress” when finn decides he has to go it alone, and he kisses jake’s sleeping head. that is one of the sweetest, heartfelt moments in the whole series.

Finn The Human: A Journey of Growth (Redux)

     Finn the Human needs no introduction as a character on the hit Cartoon Network series Adventure Time.

     He can be considered the main character that the series revolves around and focuses most of its attention on. In a show with hundreds upon hundreds of colorful, strange, and outright weird characters, it’s important to have a character to connect to within the show: another human. And that’s where Finn comes in. He represents a human identity of growth and emotions while living in the magical world of Ooo. How Finn has grown and changed as a character is the most interesting and dynamic aspect of the show- in my opinion. This piece has less to do with the overall plot of the show in general, and more so with Finn as a character and how he has evolved within the world he lives in. For this analysis, its important understand Finn’s initial intentions as a character, what he was and where he has gone through years of adventures.

    Okay, I have a lot of ground to cover so bear with me for what you might already understand as I attempt to cover nearly 7 years of fighting demons and saving princesses in one contained thought.

    So in Finn’s eyes he started off as your everyday hero in the world of Ooo. In the first season, Finn can be seen as almost a “generic hero.” He has simple goals: adventure with his bro Jake and save princesses, but more specifically get the attention of Princess Bubblegum of the Candy Kingdom- the girl of his dreams. He sees nothing further than his current goals or what is going on in the “now.” It’s like Finn is the middle school kid trying to win the heart of the hot older girl from across the street. This marks the first stage of Finn’s character and where he will grow from here. The first major turning points of Finn’s character comes from the midst of literally crying over a piece of Bubblegum’s hair. He’s “all gummed up inside” after finally coming to the realization the PB is not interested in him at the end of season 3. 

You can feel the pain. It hurts. The only thing Finn wants is gone. He’s confronted with the fact that PB and him might be on two completely different levels. But in the wake of this grief, Finn would meet his match when the Princess of the Flame Kingdom came into his life.

     Wrapping up season 3 and starting season 4, the episodes “Incendium” and “Hot to the Touch” are the first encounters Finn has with Flame Princess. Little does he know how this relationship will begin to change Finn and shape the way he thinks about things. After time, a relationship begins to develop between Finn and FP and there’s another shift in Finn’s personality as a character. He’s growing up. It’s the same kid who couldn’t date the older girl but now, someone new who likes him enters his life.  

     Finn’s growth at this point is shown in the episode “Burning Low.” He’s worried about how he smells, about smoochin’, WHILE AVOIDING TIER 15. Never has Finn worried about stuff like this before. He’s growing into a teen trying to impress his first girlfriend. This rang true with my 16 year old self more than any episode of adventure time had before. He was dealing with older, more mature emotions as he was growing up. And with this new sense of maturity, come new thoughts and feelings. Feelings experienced before, feelings that would soon turn into a source of conflict.

     Again, fast-forwarding a bit, the relationship between Finn and FP lasts until their break-up in episode 30 of season 5, “Frost and Fire.” This is where Finn’s character once again begins to shift in a new and different way. Finn starts to have weird cosmic, emotional dreams about Flame Princess after seeing her beat up Ice King. In an attempt to recreate those emotions, he manipulates Flame Princess into fighting Ice King again. This moment forever marks a radical change in Finn’s character. Finn has always done the “right thing” and puts others before him, but now, in this moment, he gave into his own temptations and desires and did what HE wanted to with no regard for FP’s feelings or thought. One of the hardest results of this break-up is that Finn does not understand FP’s feelings and doesn’t fully understand WHY she is upset. For a time he foolishly thinks they will make up and everything will be alright, but its not.

Now, you can interpret Finn’s cosmic dreams however you’d like, but the main idea is what he did. Finn knew that wasn’t the right thing to do. But he did it anyway. After FP dumps him, as she RIGHTFULLY should, this is where Finn again begins to change in a drastic and depressing way.

     After his break-up Finn’s character’s growth, or what can be considered a lack thereof, is shown. Finn does what alot of people do after a long, nasty break-up: makes dumb decisions, contemplates life, and tries to rebound. A LOT. Like, immediately after in the episode “Too Old” where he gives one ditch effort with PB only to realize that they are STILL on completely different levels when it comes to maturity. It’s at this point Finn learns that it’s time for him to move on. He understand her emotions and knows it might be time understand his own feelings. Little does he know how much rougher his journey is about to become.

     Jumping forward, the two part season 6 opener is where Finn begins to hit a rough patch when his real dad, Martin, coming into his world. When he finally meets Martin, his expectations are immediately crushed with what a HORRIBLE guy Martin is. He clearly has no thought or care for any other character except himself. Martin can be seen as Finn at his worst, or even deeper, what Finn could become. This encounter literally tears Finn apart by his arm at the end of the episode. 

At this moment he was treated exactly as he treated Flame Princess in a way, and although he may not realize it, he knows it hurts. And so Finn begins season 6 lonely, devastated by the lack of love from his father, and armless. A traumatizing way to start a season. 

Following this, the episode, “The Tower” portrays a distant, lonely, and hurt Finn we haven’t seen before. He was torn apart by his dad, and his flower arm is a constant reminder of this. Again, he literally and emotionally lost a piece of himself. Finn had been through one of the roughest experiences in his entire life and with so much grief falling on him all at one time and he had to learn to deal with these emotions. 

     All of these different emotions come to a jarring climax in the episode “Breezy.” By this time, Finn’s emotional state is symbolized by his new flower arm that is beginning to die. He goes through the episode smooching random princesses at parties in attempt to fill his emotional void. The saddest thing Finn’s ever said was in this episode when he says he “doesn’t feel anything…” At this point, he’s officially “lost in the darkness.” He is lost and distant from the character he once was. This is a Finn who has truly hit rock bottom. This episode shows that Finn doesn’t know what he needs to make him feel better, but he knows he needs something.

     Again, you can take the actual meaning of this episode as whatever you want, it’s hard not to with the strongly hinted rape implications from two separate characters. But that’s for another discussion. Right now Finn is in a rut, and has tried doing anything it takes to feel better. At this point, Finn makes one of his last major changes to this point.  

      At the end of “Breezy”, Finn’s arm is returned with the help of Breezy’s love. In my opinion, this is how he gets his arm back. Breezy gave Finn the love he so desperately needed. In that selfless act he was able to feel again, he was able to feel- something. This is what restored his arm and “made him whole” in a way. Feeling this love is what Finn needed to be able to bounce back. Its that genuine love and care that gave Finn the push you need to get out of that rut and begin to laugh and feel again. He can begin to move forward. And so he does.

           Throughout the rest of season 6 Finn’s ready to change. Ready to grow. “The Mountain” is a great episodes that shows this. Finn is given a test of three choices: Flame Princess, Jake’s Finn Cakes, or a butterfly transport that clearly takes him further to his current goal. Finn chose the door he needed to go down instead of the one containing all his wants and desires. The door that literally leads forward. The episode “The Visitor” closes his emotional hang ups with his dad when he is subconsciously driven to Martin, who had crash landed on Ooo. This time, Finn does not give his father the power he did before. This is a Finn whose grown from his past experiences and learned how to deal with them in a a productive way. 

This encounter with Martin shows Finn that has to be the man that his father isn’t. He sees how Martin doesn’t care about anyone but himself, and he sees the path that leads someone down. He sees himself in Martin like he hadn’t before, his perspective has grown. Finn learns that he has to be the better person. And again, Finn moves forward.

     The end of season 6 and now in the midst of season 7, we see a Finn who has grown over the years from a generic hero to a young man with real emotions and thoughts. A real hero who has confronted his fears and doubts, and continues on past them to a better life. By this point he’s learned that life is full of temptation, pain, and heart-ache, but he also its full of friendship, happiness, and love. He is content with a life where he has to struggle for what he wants and he is willing to receive pain if it means he will also receive happiness. 

The season 6 finale, “The Comet” show Finns new perspective he’s got on life. The all-powerful comet gives Finn the choice of leaving this reality full of both negative and positive experiences; to leave them all behind, to be in a “new mode of existence” But Finn denies this opportunity. He has done so much growing and changing he is not so willing to throw that all away just for the offer of no more suffering.


    Finn has grown because he has earned his happiness. He has earned his title as a hero. He has not only seen what it means to be “the bad guy” but understands that life is not black and white. Its full of grays, blues, and magic. He lives in a world where he has to live with himself and make the tough choices. Not just for himself, but for everyone else. Season 7 now shows an older Finn. Take “The Hall of Egress” for example. 

At this point Finn is around 17 years old. He is not the same 12 year old boy who was gawking over Princess Bubblegum. One willing to adapt and learn in ways he never had before- to see the world through a different perspective. Finn lives on as a symbol: even if life gets you down, you keep moving forward and you stay open to new experiences, because you will always find the light within the darkness.


In the words of Jake,

CURRENTLY THINKING ABOUT FINN HAVING TO TELL JAKE EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED WHILE HE WAS STUCK IN THE HALL OF EGRESS LIKE WHEN HE HAD TO LEAVE HIM FOREVER AND ITS MAKING ME SO SAD

asoiaf meme (minor characters): ½ places ~ casterly rock

Casterly Rock, the ancient seat of House Lannister, is no ordinary castle. Although crowned with towers and turrets and watchtowers, with stone walls and oaken gates and iron portcullises guarding its every means of egress, this ancient fortress is in truth a colossal rock beside the Sunset Sea, a rock that some say looks like a lion in repose when the sun sets and the shadows fall.

EGRESS - noun (ee-gress), verb (ih-gres

Definition (noun):

  • the act or an instance of going, especially from an enclosed place
  • a means or place of going out; an exit
  • the right or permission to go out

Definition (verb):

  • to go out; emerge

Example sentences:

  • After being denied egress, John knew he was a prisoner.

Stovenly thinks:

  • how did he remember without his brain
  • the brain looks like chewing gum
  • what if the brain is really just all the chewing gum you swallowed as a kid

Made my first fan art and used copic in a long time .And it’s everyone’s favorite ,FINN THE HUMAN.. or Finn Mertens that is….

it’s mostly inspired by the episode “Room of Egress” had to watch it a few times to really understand it, and the ending of the mini series islands (think that’s what it’c called?) gave me the feels~~~
