look all im telling you is that mercy’s just someone’s elaborate scheme to get their humanized spaceship oc in a big name videogame

Highlights from the Matt live chat:

- I can’t believe he talked about pumpkins for like 85% of the time like what a nerd
- I love that he’s so accommodating with regard to talking about malec. I’m sure that getting asked about it all the time must be mentally tiring but he’s such an awesome bro about it
- “[malec] comes out fast and it comes out hard” PLEASE ELABORATE MATTHEW
- God but Alec interacting more with the downworlders in season 2 is everything I want and I’m happy that Matt confirmed it in this chat. I think there’s something really meaningful about that happening (more development with shadowhunter/downworlder relations right?), considering how his relationship with Magnus has developed so far
- I’m sure the whole malec fandom was screaming when he said Harry would make the best shadowhunter but I’m curious as to which of Harry’s qualities in particular Matt’s thinking of (I know he simply said that Harry has the right temperament for it but I wish he’d had time to talk about that more lol).
- He refers to his own neck rune as “this guy” lol istg
- “I’m trying to teach [Magnus] how to use magic” I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS GUY (was he serious about the water tank/construction equipment part of that answer though or was he just joking? Because it’d be really cute if Alec really did sidestep magic and taught Magnus a pretty mundane-ish way to fix something. I’d honestly love to see that).
- Really, really love the way his hair looks and I’m happy it’s going back to a style with a little more volume lol. They kinda flattened his hair for the episode 1 preview (by “they” I obv mean the hair & makeup dept) right? He still looks good then though, I just personally prefer the style with a little more lift to it. It’s really nice and tousled and chill
- Closing the chat with “I’m pressing finish, this is so terrible” I’m crying lol


Every time, EVERY TIME, that “Snake Eater”, from Metal Gear Solid 3 , would play during one of @tamarinfrog / @cafe-cardamari ‘s art streams in its Smash Bros. version, I’d think of her octoling character, Tetrox (c’mon, read those lyrics, how couldn’t I?).

I think that this “sexy spy” style suits her too well, and I bet she keeps a couple of mysteries to herself.

So, yeah. First time drawing Tetrox (or any octoling, btw). Actually, I started sketching this in September! Toxink month was long over and I was afraid I wouldn’t finish this in October either, but I managed to do it (proper sleep, what is it?). All because I felt the need to give some more attention to the colors than I’m used to.

I had imagined Tetrox wearing a sparkling dress since the very beginning. But then I started elaborating more… and feels happened.

I hope you like it!

I really love messy, tribal style make up, and not just for elaborate event looks! Today is just concealer + eyebrows + bold lines and I love it ✨ Hood by @thevegetariandragon (I’m gonna live in this all winter) Gloves by @theivorydolls

I'm trying to write a fic about the batboys dynamic and I need your help. I was wondering if you can elaborate on their relationship with each other. like I known Damian and Dick have a loving mentor relationship but the other boys I'm not too sure and I want to do them justice.

Hello! I would be more than happy to explain but I must put out a warning first. Canon is very wibbly wobbly, it can vary dramatically between authors so there’s no one ‘correct’ interpretation of any character. I try and find the traits/relationships that are most consistent/in-character and tend to disregard the crappy writers. Also it’s good to separate fanon, which is often way over exaggerated and often wrong, from canon.

Dick and Bruce- As sad as it is to say, Bruce probably has the strongest relationship with Dick than the other kids. It’s complicated but it’s been stated over and over how much Bruce cares for, admires and trusts his first son. That’s not to say Bruce isn’t above manipulating Dick’s good nature / love of Bruce for the mission and they’ve gone through a few periods of intense fighting. On the whole, I’d say the relationship is mostly good. Bruce admits that Dick coming into his life saved him from a dark path and Dick isn’t shy about telling Bruce he loves him.

Dick and Jason- Dick and Jay have a difficult relationship to pin down, so here’s how I see it. Jay was adopted while Dick and Bruce were fighting. While Jason was Robin, Dick was a bit stand-offish feeling that Bruce had up and replaced him. He helped Jay out on a few cases, and wasn’t mean to him or anything, but he wasn’t very involved either. But when Jason died he was just as upset as Bruce was. Since Jay’s resurrection, it’s been shown Dick makes an active effort to bridge the gap and help out Jason. Jay, for the most part, usually ignores him but I always get the sense that he, like the other batboys, really look up to Dick.

Dick and Tim- I think of all the bat siblings, Dick and Tim have the most normal brotherly relationship. From the start, Dick was more involved with Timmy, helping him out both in and out of costume. I think he learned his mistake in not bonding with Jason and wants to prevent the same thing from happening to Tim. Time and again, Dick has been looking out for Tim and Tim cares for and admires Nightwing so much. The once strong relationship became strained when Dick chose Damian over Tim to be his Robin. Tim felt seriously betrayed during the literal worst time of his life, Dick had good reasons… but he really didn’t do Tim any favors. If RR had continued, I think we would’ve seen the fallout of Tim forgiving but not forgetting.

Dick and Dami- I love this relationship. To me, it's as much of a paternal relationship as a fraternal one. Dick basically gave Damian the tools to redeem himself. Bruce was dead (and even when alive he wasn’t all that warm to his blood son) and so Dick stepped up to the plate as Batman and Dami’s pseudo-parent. He struggled and worked at it but he made Dami realize he was loved. This show of care is really I believe what turned Damian onto a better path. Bruce came back and finally started to properly bond with his kid now that he was more manageable. In my mind, Dick/Dami are much closer than Dami/Bruce if only bc Dick invested so much. Dami, likewise, loves the hell out of Dick and always defends him.

Jason and Bruce- I hope I don’t need to elaborate too much when I say it is bitter and complicated. Jason isn’t mad Bruce didn’t save him, he understands that. He’s mad Bruce didn’t avenge his murder, that Jason meant nothing to Batman and was easily replaced. On a deeper level I believe Jay doesn’t even care about the murder, he’s just angry and lashing out. But Jay can’t completely hate Bruce because he still remembers the good ole days when Bruce saved him from the streets. He’s slowly, excruciatingly slowly, merging back into the batfam but he and Bruce have a long way to go if they want to repair the relationship. Honestly? I don’t know if either of them has it in them to let go and accept what’s happened.

Jason and Tim- Again, this is a hard relationship to describe as it changes constantly. Initially Jason hated Tim for replacing him as Robin. He made several attempts on Tim’s life and Timmy outright avoided anything with Jay. They’ve since become a bit closer. Jason realizes that Tim has nothing to do with him and Bruce and Tim acknowledges that Jay went through some tough things. I personally don’t like interpretations where they’re super buddies, but I do like that they’ve been able to work together and understand one another.

Jason and Damian- This one I’m a bit iffy on, from my experience, Jay and Dami don’t have a terrible amount of significant interaction. It’s mostly during fights or those weird bantering moments in the cave. The two will sass each other and provide an assassins perspective but that’s it as far as I know. We know they somewhat care as Jason demanded to be part of the group to resurrect Damian. Fanon likes to have Dami and Jason bonding over being killers in a nonviolent family and also having been resurrected. I’m not saying that can’t happen (I like to believe this) I’m just saying it’s not strictly canon as far as I know.

Tim and Bruce- Unlike the other boys who became part of the family first then became Robin, Tim was the opposite. Bruce treated Tim like an apprentice rather than a son at first making clear distinctions btw Tim and say Jay and Dick. He, of course, grew to care for Tim and thus when Jack Drake was killed, he became a Wayne. To me, Tim is the most like Bruce and I think Bruce feels this as well. He’s more likely to leave Tim on his own, thinking the boy is tough enough to handle it. But he often misses Tim’s emotional needs, like feeling like an outsider in the family, which is the main source of contention.

Tim and Damian- These two have never and probably will never get along. They’re too stubborn and too certain the other is wrong. Luckily, Dami has moved past his desire to kill Timmy every five minutes but their relationship is mostly antagonistic but in a less violent way. I find it sadly ironic that both Damian and Tim have expressed to feeling removed from the family, that the other is more of an ‘actual’ son. But again, they do care enough that they will save each other and Tim was also pretty sad when Damian was killed.

Damian and Bruce- Dami and Bruce got off to a very rocky start. Dami was a spoiled murderous snot and though Bruce *ahem* “tried” to help his son, he wasn’t going about it the right way. But then Bruce died and when he came back, Damian was Robin and much calmer thanks to Dick. Bruce took back the Batsuit but kept Damian on as Robin and here is where biological father and son really forged a strong connection as Bruce continued to help guide and shape Damian. Bruce was beside himself with grief when Damian died and did some crazy stuff to bring him back. The two aren’t 100% and I still feel Dick/Dami get on better but now Bruce is actually helping Damian and the boy appreciates it.

I'm not sure if I recall right, (I think you may have written something along these lines before? Maybe? idk), but, ah, Obito can see through Kakashi's Sharingan eye, and whenever he's not concentrating on blocking the visuals from that eye, he gets glimpses of what Kakashi, and later Team 7 are doing? And then, one time when he's really depressed over something, he sees a flash of them all laughing together, and idk, feels really sad? Remorseful? No idea where it would go from there.

I did sort of vaguely use that idea in Go find your heart, but it wasn’t elaborated upon. The concept is a really interesting one, though - it’s canon that Obito did watch Kakashi like the creepy little stalker he is, though he did it in person rather than through the Sharingan. To have him get glimpses at any time he wasn’t actively concentrating, though - that would be really, really neat to think about. Huh. 

*adds idea to pile* Thank you! ^-^

So a few days ago you said dex got his nipples pierced. Care to elaborate?

I’m not going to lie, nonny. When I first read this I thought you said Jack and not Dex and I had a WHOLE SEPARATE THOUGHT PROCESS about that one. Holy shit.

But yeah, Dex got his extremely sensitive nipples pierced and ended up with a raging boner in the tattoo shop because of it. Like. Almost creamed his pants. The piercer was super cool about it, though. Assured him that it happens more often than you’d think (it doesn’t) and that they weren’t judging him for it (they were).

Tarantino Universe Headcanon: Ritchie Gecko from “From Dusk till Dawn” is played by Chester Rush from Four Rooms

Since “From Dusk Till Dawn” is a movie within the Tarantino Universe, who better than to play the psychopath criminal than Chester Rush? Chester Rush is in the movie industry as a very successful director and may want to try being an actor (in a vampire-crime film). With that being said, Rush can have connections in the industry and got the role Ritchie Gecko as a favor of another director friend of his that is totally not Robert Rodriguez. Besides Chester and Ritchie are not so different as they both wear suits with no ties, do dangerous things with little to no thought (though in Chester’s case, Cristal champagne and possibly weed was involved), and are played by Quentin Tarantino in real-life.

anonymous asked:

In what way are the bmw assumptions broken in GMGB/IDF? Does this episode show that the clique six are their own person? Ex: Maya is Maya and not the Shawn of the show. Could you elaborate?

All the BMW characters get new endings, which logically changes what’s “supposed to” happen to their alleged analogs. Even though the kids have never *actually* been exact analogs to begin with, IDF/GB smashes the assumptions they’ve been boxing themselves into of late (especially the girls)—with particular regard to Shawn & Maya. So even if (for example) Maya kept trying to box herself in as “the Shawn,” what it means to be “the Shawn” has officially changed anyway because they “rewrote history.”

It’s like a mass retcon, TBH. 😂

Another BMW-analog assumption gets smashed nearly to bits by the kids themselves when you compare the behavior of the next-gen “analogs” to what happened with the people they’re supposedly the “new versions” of in a similar situation.

There’s one major BMW-assumption they COULDN’T smash though, so in a sense the “revolution” is incomplete. That particular assumption is gonna be entirely up to the kids (Riley in particular) to smash for themselves, should we get an S4.

State of Baden-Württemberg to introduce tuition fees for non-EU students

News magazine Der Spiegel reports that the state government led by the green party has decided to introduce student fees for non-EU students from winter semester 2018/2019 onwards. The exact amount is not yet determined, it is estimated to be approximately 1500 € per semester. Most of the money will be used to fill the fiscal gap of the state, only a minor amount will directly benefit the university. The ministry of science was commissioned to elaborate a bill, which has to pass the state parliament.

This fucking show just takes ‘over the top’ to the next level.

anonymous asked:

What makes a sexuality identity "actively harmful"? Someone's actions or words can of course be harmful, but how could someone's sexual or romantic attraction in and of itself be harmful? Just experiencing a type of attraction could harm someone?

Sexualities or experiences with attraction can still reinforce oppressive ideas though.

I don’t know how helpful this example will be, but it’s the first one that comes to mind. I’m a Korean American woman. I have to deal with people (mostly straight white men) who have “yellow fever”, which is a “preference” for Asian women (read: the fetishization of “Asian women”, where “Asian women” really means light skinned East Asian women).

Now, some people will defend this as “just the way they experience attraction” but regardless of whether or not this is how someone experiences attraction, the root cause of and reasoning behind these “preferences” is (usually) rooted in racism and racist stereotypes. 

To elaborate on the above example, people (straight white men) who have “yellow fever” (usually) have a preference for “Asian women” which is based in ideas that Asian women (read: East Asian women) are more docile or meek or submissive and more feminine and subservient than white women are, which is an example of a racist stereotype and is dehumanizing and actively harmful. 

And while you’re probably thinking “but racial preferences are different from [x]”, yes, that’s probably true, most things that have similarities are not exactly the same, but this is just an example to illustrate how one’s experience of attraction is not divorced from society and oppressive ideas. 

Therefore, in other words, when people’s experiences with attraction and/or sexualities are based in oppressive ideas, and because none of these experiences exist in a vacuum, they continue to reinforce oppressive ideas and that is what makes them actively harmful. 

If anyone else wants to add your thoughts, please do!
