I don’t at all want to falsely raise anyone’s hopes, but
the more I think about it, the more I’m convinced that there has to be a fourth episode. I know that’s a conspiracy nutter, off-the-deep-end thing to say, I know that. But once you’ve eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth. It’s literally the only theory that fits all the data.
I love the idea of Spock falling in love with Jim first. It’s this steady progression of emotion starting from the day they meet, and building over years. Little moments feed into it, to the point that he doesn’t know exactly when it began or if it would ever end, just that it’s been happening all along. And he’s okay with it. Just like, “this is a beautiful emotion, and– even though I’m not supposed to feel it– I’ll treasure it. And him.”
And so when Jim finally wises up and realizes what’s been under his nose the whole time, when he finally has that “aha” moment, Spock (who has been content to just love him with no expectations) just feels this culmination of the inevitable. And it takes him no time at all to return Jim’s affections because he has had years longer to absorb and reflect on his own.
I just think that’s how their individual realizations would go. Spock, steadily over many years; Jim, in one defining moment.
Have you had one of those days when you feel sad, even though nothing particularly bad happened? I usually find myself at the grocery store picking up my favourite ice cream, and salty snacks to accompany a movie marathon. I feel the need to fill a void and soothe this longing for someone I’ve never met. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does it feels like this powerful craving for something I’ve never tasted, but I know it’s exactly what I need.
I know everyone likes to go big with their OTPs, and my bruhs down in the ever growing solangelo army aren’t any different. I have read every good Solangelo fanfic I could get my hands on and I’ve been a fan ever since Blood of Olympus. The angst, the hurt/comfort, the aus, even the smuts though I tend to avoid those because I am too gay gay gay gay™ and they’re really too young for that; you name it, I’ve seen it. And I’ve loved most of the things our little subfandom offered for this beautiful couple. But picture this;
*Will and Nico not desperately in love
*Will and Nico not knowing what exactly is happening between them, but they know that there’s something there- a spark; something that makes them just want to STAY with each other, because it feels right. Because holding his hand makes Nico/Will smile or gives either of them that odd fluttery feeling
*Will blurting out the word “boyfriend” accidentally when he speaks to Apollo. He doesn’t mean to say it, and Nico and him haven’t really discussed it, but he glances at Nico. Nico makes a remark, rolls his eyes, but Will can see the smile he’s trying to hide and he knows it’s OK.
*Will and Nico not even kissing- both are too uncertain. But they hold hands when no one’s looking. Sometimes Will gathers his nerves and pecks Nico’s forehead, and it makes Nico’s day.
*The first time Nico kisses Will, it’s on the cheek probably. Imagine- he’s flustered and unsure but Will is adorable and cute and oh god there he goes talking about Grey’s Anatomy again and shit he can’t help but smooch that cutie
*They’re both totally equals in their relationship, each supporting the other in times of need. Nico needs certain reminders someone cares for obvious reasons, Will is just- honestly the kid’s fifteen and performed a surgery that sixteen skilled surgeons have to sweat on for hours all by himself (*squints @ paolo*), needless to say the surgical field can be plenty traumatising, not to mention how terrible you’d feel if you COULDN’T save someone.
*So none of that dominant stuff. Not now or here. They’re both kids and both aren’t ready for a serious relationship but they’re getting there and each day it’s like their bond is growing- by the time Apollo leaves camp for his quest, they’re probably just inseparable
*I’m not sure why I consider the concept of their slow progressing romance so gorgeous
I imagine Dean and Cas having this relationship well into their golden years where Dean claims he’s only doing something because Cas wants to, and honestly Cas couldn’t care less, but he knows Dean’s just putting on an act because he secretly wants to do it, so Cas plays along, anyway.
Like they’ll be at a wedding reception or maybe even just at a crappy bar with live music, and Dean’s just polishing off a beer that tips him into pleasantly buzzed when he looks over at Cas, sighs the most obnoxious sigh and says, “Ugh, all right, come on.”
Dean’ll get up from his chair and motion his fingers towards Cas, and even though Cas knows precisely where this is going because it’s happened exactly 27 times before, he chooses to feign innocence with those big baby blues of his. Much more fun that way. “What, Dean?”
“You’ve got that look in your eye again.”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Oh, you know perfectly well what you’re doing. You’re anglin’ for a dance, and if I leave you hanging, you’ll never let me live it down.”
Cas is finding it increasingly hard to bite back a grin. “That does put you in quite the predicament.”
“Yeah, well, I’m not gonna be in the doghouse tonight, so you get your ass out there so I can dance the pants off of you.”
“I take it you intend for this romantic gesture to take a literal turn.”
Dean winks as one hand slips into the other. “Can’t get anything past you, Cas. Always see right through me.”
Yes. Yes, he does.
Soon as they hit the dance floor, though, the lights get a little dimmer, the music a little softer as the band announces an “anonymous” request for "Faithfully.”
“Really? A Journey ballad?” Dean says with that same pseudo-disgust that still makes Cas’ heart skip a beat even for the 28th time. “God, you’re such a sap, Cas.”
And although he’s 100% certain that request was jotted down in Dean’s handwriting (Cas saw him sneak off in search of a pen earlier), Cas will just smile that small smile of his, pressing his forehead to Dean’s as he lets Dean envelop him, nuzzling him with the brush of his nose and the graze of his lips. “I suppose I can’t get anything past you, either.”
Theory: What if Rika Had a Wish? And Met the Wizard?
[MAJOR SPOILERS FOR MYSTIC MESSENGER AND DANDELION]
WARNING: This theory SPOILS the secret endings of both of these games. Please do not read if you have no idea what happens in them.
It’s easy to know exactly what kind of wish Rika would desire: a wish where everyone will be able to live in peace without any hurt and pain.
From what we learn in the secret endings, we learn that Rika was the one to found Mint Eye in the first place. The reason? To create an organisation whose aim is to spread happiness among all it’s members and to invite others to join them in this everlasting party.
Now… we know for certain that Rika was crazy enough to the point where she would even drug innocent people *cough* Saeran *cough* in order to forcefully follow her ideals of a perfect world.
As much as Rika damaged the majority of the RFA members, in my personal opinion, many people in the fandom still don’t understand the fact that she’s a victim of mental sickness. I mean, the poor woman even knew herself she was ill and tried to warn V.
Take a look at this screenshot:
This statement is alarming. By a lot. Like, a lot.
Rika is a Catholic, and judging her saying, this shows she has completely lost hope in even her own Savior. Her own God. Now what if…
She met the Wizard before these chain of events happened?
I’ll retell the theory in a simpler way, so imagine this scenario is set before she meets V:
Rika hopes for a world full of peace and no harm
She gets absorbed into this hope, and eventually this hope in turn, becomes a desperate wish.
This wish whisks her away to the Wizard.
Introductions are made. And the Wizard finally asks Rika her wish.
However, instead of fulfilling Rika’s desire, he refuses to grant it
Well, think about it. There are two reasons for this:
1) It would perhaps take up a large supply of energy to grant this wish. As much as it may cost ALL of Rika’s memories, it still wouldn’t be enough due to the fact that her wish applies to EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING ON EARTH (maybe even including the cats and rabbits from the Grimm Continent as well as the dolls with living souls in them).
Basically, this means she could lose all of her memories of everyone around her (like loved ones) since her wish is related to them (because she has the need for everyone to live in peace). But it still wouldn’t be enough.
This wish is very big and Rika’s memories alone wouldn’t be able to sustain the amount of energy the Wizard would need in order to carry out this wish.
2) Remember that if the Wizard were to be involved in Mysme, and he still had his powers, MysMe would be set either BEFORE or DURING the competition of Dandelion (since the Wizard loses his powers in the end).
Granting this wish could mean losing all the progress he made into hosting the animals’ competition. His goal is to make Heejung suffer through the confusion of why her lover is gone. Thus, finally gaining a wish that will lead her to him.
The keyword is there: “Suffer”
Meaning, if the Wizard were to grant Rika’s wish, he would lose the chance to meet Heejung face-to-face since she wouldn’t be suffering and making a wish due to the help of Rika’s own wish.
So he rejects the idea, and sends her back to her world without taking away her memories of their meeting.
This would leave Rika agitated, and wondering why her wish has been ignored by the Wizard, the being himself who claims his job is to grant any desperate wish, and even having the power to raise the dead.
This leads her to being diagnosed with mental illness, and thinking that no one will be able to understand her. Somewhere along the way, she meets V for the first time.
She plans forming Mint Eye with the idea of thinking that she is able to carry out peace through the method of drugging people .-. However, V is unaware of this.
V finally finds out about her illness. And she says, “Even God can’t save me”, showing that she’s still sane enough to know she is mentally crazy and ill.
And this is where her line is assuming that no one, absolutely no one, can help her now that the Wizard has rejected her wish
And this all happens due to the Wizard refusing to grant her wish.
I will be splitting this theory into two parts, so the next part will be explaining the timelines of Dandelion and Mystic Messenger and how they line up in relation to Rika’s story.
NOTE: Please know it is very important to let me know if there are any flaws in my post. If there are any, please don’t be afraid to inform me :) If anyone has any theories or thoughts around this theory, any of the Cheritz games or pretty much anything else, please feel free to share them to me ^.^
Viktor: The rumour come out, does Yuri Pilsetsky is gay?
Yuuri: *starts laughing*
Viktor: *joins in with laughing*
Yuuri: I don’t know does he?
Viktor: Well I–they sent that to my friend Chris, so he went deeper down the rabbit hole and read the article and sent it back to me and was like……‘you’re going to want to read this.’ So allow me to take the next 20 seconds to read you an excerpt of the ‘does Yuri Pilsetsky is gay?’ rumour mil.
Yuuri: *laughs* yea, cos I though the same thing myself. Does Yuri Pilsetsky is gay?
Yuuri: I have to know, I does is have to know
Viktor: Yuri Pilsetsky is gay is the most discussed in the media in the few years ago. Even it has happened in 2012 but some of the public still curious about what exactly is happening and to be the reason there is a rumour comes out about his gay
Yuuri: *laughs really hard along with Viktor* oh my god I can believe this real, dude!
Viktor: At that time he became the massive figure skater rumour the public especially his fans are shocked. He just came out with his bad rumour which has spread massively, this time is not about his skating career but about his bad rumour. The rumour is out of standardised of hoax.
Viktor: according to the last reported the skater revealed himself as homosexual do you still believe or not? This rumour is much talked about even by a person in his fans.
Viktor: So I hope that cleared it up for you.
Yuuri: Wait so did he actually come out as gay?

Yuuri: Does Yuri Pilsetsky is gay?
Viktor: Does Yuri Pilsetsky is gay it’s a question that will haunt me for the rest of my life
Killian, Percival, the Fisher King, the Grail, Excalibur, the Savior
This post is an offshoot from the one I made earlier
about the Savior’s birthplace being Agrabah.
Just as a disclaimer, I’m not a religious person, I’m
not religiously inclined in the least, I don’t believe in a lot much to my
parents’ dismay, and my answer to everything is the Big Bang, because the Big
Bang, and also pragmatism. But I do know enough to recognize symbolism when I see it, so of course, research time, and down the rabbit hole.
If you’re not into the religious connotations from
season 5 with regard to Killian’s death and subsequent resurrection, which is a
word I’ve been impossibly gun shy about using, even though that’s exactly what
happened in episode 5x21, if you’re not into the Arthurian Legends and anything
to do with religious symbolism/imagery then this post isn’t for you.
It’s weird how when you’re gone for a long time, the things you left behind are exactly how you left them. I know that doesn’t sound like it’s weird, it’s just what you’d expect from inanimate objects, but it actually happens. It’s weird.
You think about the you that left those things in those places, and everything that’s happened to you since, and it doesn’t track. It doesn’t feel possible, even though it’s not just possible, it’s unavoidable. You will always live in the remnants of the life you’ve led up until this point, making do with whatever you’ve left for yourself.
Alice Isn’t Dead, Part 1 Chapter 9: Go Home Again
As my plans to write something new for OQ Sunday failed miserably this weekend, I plunged into my archives and unearthed this old thing from last year that I never posted. Enjoy some Missing Year Regina taking care of Robin and the two sharing body heat (cliche it may be, but deliciously so, if you ask me! :D).
Regina tells no one and leaves in the dead of night. The heavy snowstorm, though an inconvenience, will be no match for her magic, and her green witch of a sister will never see her coming amid the calamity.
Robin tells no one and follows Regina into the blizzard. He has no magic to protect him, just a cape and a bunch of gold-tipped arrows that are nothing but harmless toys against the raging elements; yet the Queen’s reckless disregard for her own life draws his watchful eye.
He’s severely hypothermic when she finds him—or he finds her, stumbles upon the crumbling cottage she’s taken refuge in from the buffeting wind. The weight of him collapses against the barely sealing door with a muffled thud, and the fool is lucky some inexplicable impulse sends Regina investigating. The thief’s cape is practically frozen solid, clings to him like a shell, an added burden rather than protection. His lips stand out blue in his pale face, the same blue almost as his disoriented gaze. They move slightly as she hovers above him, but nothing comes out, and the effort seems to cost him the last vestiges of strength.
With her magic all but exhausted by her own trek, Regina resorts to what scant non-magical resources she has.
Wedging a hand under each of his arms, she tugs and pulls, but the thief, heavy and paralysed with cold, doesn’t budge. She wraps her arms around him tighter, the blustering fool, to keep the drifting snow at bay at least, and hoists him inch by hard-gained inch inside and onto the hovel’s pitiful excuse for a bed, a half-rotten pallet slightly more sheltered than the bare floor.
His eyes don’t stare anymore, and they always seek hers, have always followed her in the palace much to her ire, but now they’re closed and there’s no relief for her in escaping his scrutiny for once.
Why must he be such a damn idiot, why must he be looking out for her all the time? Why must he—care?
Do you ever use the law of attraction to achieve things? Do you believe in it?
I’ve always believe in it (didn’t know it was law of attraction though) but if I want something in life, I’ll make it happen and I’ll go do it or get it, won’t let anything stop me, it’s my life and anything is attainable and achievable! Because what are you going to achieve by being negative and angry at the world and life. Your attitude and outlook shapes your world. I always have a positive outlook to things and even if something negative happens through it there will be something positive, may not be exactly positive thing after it but even just a learning curb or experience that will hopefully benefit me future to be more aware. I guess also it’s easier/comes naturally to have this mindset as I’m quite resilient too.
Taylor has had 5 relationships that ended in 3 months or less. Why would Tom's fans and the media all of the sudden be the blame for another failed relationship? She's a young woman who dates around and you don't know exactly what went on between them so acting as though it's suddenly someone else's fault that the same thing that happened to this relationship happened in 90% of her other relationships is suddenly everyone else's fault seems naive.
So every relationship is her fault, even though those guys she’s dated haven’t exactly found a lasting relationship either? I don’t see them getting married and having it all figured out. What’s sad is that ask probably comes from a woman.
So I watched Kingsglaive and after drying my tears I wanna talk about it. I totally loved it!!!
There is a theory in my head about Luna. don’t read this if you haven’t watched the movie, or haven’t read the 4chan leaks
First it bugged me how often Luna says “I don’t fear death” and then jumps off the airship and Nyx was totally right to say “cut the brave princess talk” but I couldn’t get it out of my head. What if this isn’t about bravery what if she actually knows when she is going to die? She is the Oracle (even though it never gets mentioned in the movie) and must hold some power, too. So yeah what if she knows exactly what will happen with her and she knew that her fall is not going to happen in Insomnia?
Regarding the 4chan leaks she will die in the game, so maybe she knows who will kill her and she isn’t afraid to die because she knows that it is a necessary sacrifice for Noctis somehow?
The entire movie just gave me a vibe that she might have seen the future and therefore she knows how important Noctis is for the world.
P.S. I don’t like the fact that she is mostly going to die in the game because she really deserves a happy ending with or without Noctis at her side. I would totally love to see her as the queen of Tenebrae! And yes honestly i ship NoctLuna indeed, so of course I want to see these two together reclaiming their thrones and being happy!
For Akechi I tried to keep in mind “Kunikida but happier,” but I
still don’t know what exactly I’m using for the basis of his character??
I’ve only watched the two episodes that’ve been subbed, and I don’t
know how to watch the ones that haven’t, or I’d’ve done so, even though I
more than likely wouldn’t have been able to understand about 75% of it.
Anyway, here’s more kissin’ in the rain for these dorks, because??? I
don’t know. It just happened. (Like this ship just happened tbh) They’re
Akechi tilts his umbrella back seemingly without realizing
it as he gazes up at the dark grey bellies of the clouds overhead, his eyes
lighting up as they track the momentary purple-white flash of lightning across
the sky. Kunikida watches warily as the man toys briefly with his umbrella,
then reaches up to draw it closed.
“We’re in the middle of a thunderstorm, and you seriously
want to stop and feel the rain,” Kunikida says in mild disbelief. A light rain,
he can understand, but it’s verily pouring buckets at the moment. “You’re going
to catch a cold.”
Akechi shoots him an apologetic smile, but the excitement
in his eyes is anything but. “I’ve always liked storms,” he says by way of
Not gonna happen, anon. Maybe we do have many things in common, though, I don’t even know what things exactly, but, still, it seems like we live in different worlds. It feels so. And you know, as a princess it is not ok for her to like the “bad” guys like me. It’s just how it works. Even with friendship.
