Today’s assorted 1A shenanigans

4+ Hours and I forgot his hat. He almost crashed Medibang multiple times. He’s cursed, I tell ya.
Oh and I recorded it so there’s that

@phantomtype ?? You like this green bean right

Ransom pushed into Canon

Where Ransom is pushed into Canon, the exact same place and moment that Canon!Rosinante was about to be killed.

So I did some editing to the format, and I wrote everything that’s from Rosinante’s POV (AKA below the line-break). The lovely Anon wrote the stuff from Ransom’s POV. 

This was great fun, I’m glad you’ve let me add to it.

There is something extremely wrong with the situation happening in front of him.

today on emotional about harry potter dot tumblr dot com

i was thinking about the motif of touch in hp, specifically as it relates to harry’s character

harry really dislikes being touched by other people, generally. while part of this may just be his natural disposition, his abusive home background and a lack of any sort of positive physical contact for most of his childhood (he’s almost fifteen when he experiences any sort of paternal physical affection) definitely have play an important role in this matter as well. 

it’s interesting then, that lily’s sacrifice makes it so harry can literally not be physically touched by voldemort or anyone who he possessing– exploiting this is how harry defeats quirrell at the end of the first book. being touched by voldemort causes harry pain, but it causes voldemort’s skin to break out in harsh burns and painful boils. prolonged contact results in death. it’s a pretty key part of harry’s protection. dumbledore says this power lives within harry’s skin, but later we find it goes even deeper and is present within harry’s very blood. this makes sense, since harry’s blood connection to petunia through lily is emphasized repeatedly as being what enables harry’s protection at privet drive. 

realizing the significance of this, voldemort then goes to great lengths to obtain harry’s blood for the potion he needs to restore his body in gof, so that he will have the same blood, and thereby the same protection, flowing in his veins as harry does, rendering this power useless. one of the first things he does during the graveyard scene is to show this off by touching harry in an intimate and creepy way (stroking his scar) in front of all of his followers. the pain harry experiences after being touched this way is so blinding and intense he almost blacks out. voldemort’s ability to touch or not touch harry ends up being a defining element of his and harry’s relationship– it’s reflective of which one of them has the power at that point. 

but the idea of someone not being able to touch harry is not limited to his antagonism with voldemort. it also shows up in possibly the two most iconic scenes of the series– harry finding the mirror of erised, and harry using the resurrection stone. both times harry encounters phantom echoes of his parents that he cannot physically touch, only watch– and specific attention is given in each scene to the fact that lily is unable to touch harry. in both scenes, harry’s dislike of physical contact is understandably disregarded in favor of actually having the chance to touch is mother, but it ends up being impossible. lily is the one who directly sacrificed her life for harry’s even though she was given the opportunity to survive. her choice to die for her son ends up being what saves him and what prevents voldemort from being able to touch him… but it also meant that she herself could never touch her son again. 

i’m not sure i have a greater point here, except that it’s both fascinating and heartbreaking to me that this inability to be touch manifests itself in such opposite relationships.

Gundam 00 Friendly Reminders

@sapphireswimming​ and I decided to compose this heartwarming list, just in case you weren’t sad enough about 00 already.

Feel free to add more!

  1. Tieria lost everything that had ever mattered to him in the span of two weeks: Veda abandoned him when the GN-Xes appeared on the world stage; Lockon died less than a week later; less than a week after that, Celestial Being was destroyed, and a shattered skeleton of a crew was left to limp back to Krung Thep with next to no hope of their continued survival.
  2. When Setsuna ran into Saji on Proud, it was the first familiar face he’d seen in four years.
  3. Feldt’s parents were 28 when they died, and Feldt was two.
  4. Dr. Moreno and Ian were best friends for decades before the show.
  5. Saji lost both Louise and Kinue within a week.
  6. Tieria and the Trinities were the effective ages of young children, despite their conditioning in Veda and their physical appearances.
  7. Lichty died thinking he saved Chris’ life.
  8. Ian was the only one on board the Ptolemy who had any semblance of a family left.
  9. Allelujah thought he killed Marie when he destroyed the Super Human Institute.
  10. Setsuna said he doesn’t have anyone to write a letter to when Feldt asked, but he’d already left one for Marina.
  11. Sergei never got the chance to formally adopt Soma.
  12. After Fallen Angels, Graham didn’t talk to Billy unless he wanted something modified on his suit.
  13. Lockon was perfectly fine with dying, because he thought he took Ali down with him.
  14. Allelujah spent days alone on the shuttle before he was rescued, surrounded by the bodies of his friends and covered in their blood while Hallelujah laughed.
  15. Sumeragi abandoned Celestial Being after Fallen Angels because she held herself responsible for everyone dead and missing.
  16. Feldt changed her hairstyle after Fallen Angels to honor Chris.
  17. Andrei and Sergei never got a chance to talk through their issues, and Andrei never got a chance to apologize.
  18. Setsuna was drawn to Marina because she reminded him of his mother.
  19. Anew was her own person and honestly loved Lyle, and the two of them probably would have lived happily together had Ribbons not meddled.
  20. Neil was never able to move past the bombing that haunted his every action and every thought until the moment he died.
  21. Despite not seeing each other since they were teenagers, Neil and Lyle ended up with the same mannerisms, the same haircut, the same affinity for cigarettes and old cars—and they both joined up with organizations hell-bent on fixing the government so that no one else’s lives will be torn apart by terrorists.
  22. Allelujah’s mission in episode 5 was to destroy Soma’s suit and kill the pilot, and the only reason he didn’t was because he decided to save the orbital block instead.
  23. Tieria didn’t know he wasn’t human until Regene told him, and struggled with his existence throughout the entirety of season one—which explains his desperate reliance on Veda and the Plan, which was the only direction he got when he was activated.
  24. Louise was a high school student when she watched her entire extended family get blown apart in front of her, and was critically injured in the process—and then, she was barely twenty when she was turned into a tool of war by Ribbons in a plot beyond her control.
  25. Feldt Grace is a codename, and nobody knows what her real name is, anymore.
  26. Tieria’s early reliance on Veda is reminiscent of a young child’s dependence on their mother.
  27. Should Lockon have lived to see it, he would have been impossibly proud of the heroes the rest of the crew had become.
  28. Marie’s only link to the world outside her head was Allelujah, who disappeared one day with no explanation or warning—and never returned.
  29. Lichty, like Lockon, was caught up in a terrorist attack that killed his family—and was severely injured by it, to boot—but he was still a loving, caring person who honestly believed in Celestial Being’s goals, and did not get caught up in revenge and hatred.
  30. Ali killed every member of Lyle’s family, and laughed in his face when confronted about it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY @chariotdunord
