fan worm

anonymous asked:

what's cringe about the article?

It’s cringey because it seem written by a larrie since it uses the same vocabulary and the same expression employed by them in one of their many ranty essays… then because it flat out attacks the the Rolling Stone article whose only fault was to provide constructive criticism by addressing a very serious trend that periodically occurs within the fandom… aka fans projecting their own wishes and desires upon Harry and then getting mad when said projections do not align with the reality. Is it not true that part of the fandom went apeshit at the mention of a woman being the source of inspiration for Harry’s album?? Is it not true that instead of discussing the 34690 other amazing parts of the article some people (anons) literally obsessed over that detail (is it Kendall?? does he still have feelings for Taylor? did a mystery girl steal Harry’s heart etc) ad nauseam, like they always do? Let’s not be naive, certain factions of the fandom (surely the ones that inspired this article) don’t want Harry to be asked that sort of questions, aka girl questions, because they wish his privacy to be respected and protected, they hate it because they don’t want to be confronted with a reality that does not allow their fantasies to reign free, whether it’s larries (for obvious reasons), and some harries too.

You know, a lot of people complain that the media or outsiders in general don’t take this fandom seriously and do not respect it… but why, instead of complaining and getting defensive all the time we don’t own it up for once when we’re called out on our bullshit? why don’t we display a mature behaviour instead of going for the usual meltdown or just start attacking people - I’m also thinking about the gp who are getting to know Harry only now (yes, some exhibiting some snobbish attitude which sucks, but alas)- and giving them a reason to think ‘hey I had these prejudices about this fandom and I was right about it’? It would be far more productive for us in primis. 

I realize that many reblogged the article in good faith (and I’m not accusing those who did btw) because it defended the fandom, which I get how it can be perceived as a good thing, but I can see the hidden agenda behind it and it drives me crazy… that’s why it’s cringey, imo.

Missandei // April 2017 for Character Design Challenge!

“A slave who served as an interpreter to the masters of Astapor, Missandei was freed when Daenerys Targaryen took the Unsullied army and used it to overthrow the slavers. Missandei now serves Daenerys as her trusted advisor and Handmaiden.”

She clapped her hands together. Then she pointed into the crowd “Alright! So, you… yeah you, the girl in the yellow shirt and jeans. If I told you to, would you pick up the gun and shoot someone?”

It took me a second to spot the girl, at the far end of the crowd. She looked at Bakuda with a stricken expression and managed to answer, “The gun m-melted too, Ma’am.”

“You call me Bakuda. You know that. Nothing fancy. If the gun was still there, would you shoot? Or if I told someone to give you a gun?”

“I-I think I maybe could,” her eyes flickered to the puddle that had been Park Jihoo.

“Which concludes my demonstration,” Bakuda addressed our group, “Fear! It’s why Lung went out of his way to recruit me. I always understood deep down inside, that fear was a powerful tool. He just phrased it so well. True fear is a blend of certainty and the unpredictable. My people know that if they cross me, I only have to think about it to make the bombs in their heads go kablooie. Boom. They know that if I die, every single bomb I’ve made goes off. Not just the ones I jammed into their heads. Every single fucking one. And I’ve made a lot. Certainties.”

Lisa reached out and grabbed my hand, clenched it tight.

“As for unpredictability?” Bakuda kicked her legs against the side of the jeep like a grade schooler sitting on a chair, “I like to mix up my arsenal, so you never know what you’re going to get. But you’ve also got to keep your people wondering, right? Keep them on their toes? Case in point: Shazam!”

The word coincided with the start of a very real explosion that was closely followed by something like thunder, but Lisa was already pulling on my arm, pulling me away.

[Cayde-6] Can’t sleep, Eris? Too many raisins?

[Eris Morn] I rarely sleep. And when I do…well.

//You took me in and yet you deny me. I am your salvation. I am-//

[Cayde-6] No rest for the wicked, huh. You and Banshee. Maybe the two of you should get lunch sometime, talk about those nightmares.

[Eris Morn] Indeed. And what haunts your dreams of late, Cayde - if dreams are what you call them?

[silence]

[Cayde-6] Funny you ask. Could be it’s all the masks around these days, but…I see things I don’t understand. Memories, maybe. Or other Caydes. Places I don’t recognize. It’s like déjà vu, but it doesn’t stop. And then I wake up, and I can’t remember where I am.

//You use my powers and yet you refuse me. When will you see that you have been taught a lie? I will give you understanding. Let me consume you, and you will know the meaning of power.//

[Cayde-6] Eris? You okay? 

[Eris Morn] Mm. Have you spoken to Ikora about these…visions? Perhaps the diaries of the Thanatonauts would grant you some peace of mind. And I have been assured that the mysteries of your kind are not ignored by the Cryptarchy.

//You swallowed me whole, and you deny the contract. Oath-breaker. Light-drinker. Dark-//

[Cayde-6] I’ve never been to Jupiter, Eris. Not sure I want to know what I was doing there.

[Eris Morn] I cannot say I blame you. There are memories that I, too, wish never to revisit.

//I will not allow you to forget.//

[Cayde-6] You ever wonder if that’s all this is? A dream? A nightmare? A memory? You’ve read the Ishtar journals. You know what they were afraid of.

[Eris Morn] It has crossed my mind. But the flesh remembers. There are events which, like scars, never fade. I find it hard to believe that they are not…real.

Well. They are real enough. And we live with them, because we are needed. Never forget that, Cayde. Never forget our purpose.

//They were not worthy. We see that now. But you are worthy. You could become great. Transcendent. You could cross the oceans of time and space. You could-//

[Cayde-6] Yeah. Thanks for the kind words, I guess. You should tell children’s stories - they’d be a hit. 

[Eris Morn] Then perhaps I shall. I admit that speaking with you has…quieted my nerves. Some.

[Cayde-6] Always a pleasure. Take care of yourself, Eris. You look like you could use some rest.

//I saved you from Crota’s pits, O bearer mine.// 

//Worship me, for I am go[o]d.//

[Eris Morn] Thank you, Cayde. I will…endure.

“Ah, yes. You think that you have killed a god. Do you feel powerful? Has your own hunger deepened?

Be wary, Guardian. There are gods…and there are gods. Not all are quite so small - and not all are quite so big.

I have seen what the Hive call a god.

And it did not look like Oryx.”

o a bit of a change up for my 100 day project and this next piece will probably count for 3 to 4 days since I started it yesterday and will start painting it today. I have an incredible honor to be included in Yallwest and I really want to finish my illustration of Safi & Merik, and I have a wedding to go tomorrow - and getting my hair colored today. NO SLEEP TONIGHT!
And yes…my Merik kinda looks like Tom Hiddleston…I have NO CLUE why.

spacedoutrocketeer  asked:

Any ideas to why Titans seem to have ignored/ have been unable to use the power of the ahamkara? I know there's a sect of thought that says that Titans were hnable to defeat them but with the scale of Eao I'm not 100% sure if that's true anymore.

Greetings, Colleague;

It is our opinion that there are Nine reasons for the lack of resonance between the Titan-subtype and the currently-understood (albeit poorly) Ahamkara-detritus; notwithstanding the discovery of the Scales of Eao. 

We consider this last to be a different matter, as the skin of a Worm is well-known to confer knowledge of nature and medicine, and when it is worked by unselfish hands into a Ward in the shape of the Hammer its power is contained and directed. 

It is worth noting that all beings are subject to change.

It is worth noting that change begets survival.

It is worth noting that nothing is absolute.

The First Harmony:

1) A Titan understands that the external does not define the self. 

2) A Titan understands that the self is only one part of the whole.

3) A Titan understands that the self is not absolute. A Titan understands lineage. A Titan understands the Continua. A Titan understands Parallax.

The Second Harmony:

4) A Titan understands that the Extreme is the source of all conflict.

5) A Titan understands that we do not see only with the eyes or with the mind, but with all Nine aspects of the being.

6) A Titan understands that if we want for nothing, we have nought to sacrifice for greater happiness.

The Third Harmony:

7) A Titan understands that if you seek the Worm, the Worm will hold you hostage.

8) A Titan understands that if you do not seek the Worm, the Worm will not seek you.

9) A Titan understands that if you mean to kill the Worm, you must smite it into Nine parts.
