I really want to download the sim named Yue Cruz to put her in my world. (I'll give you credit if I use her :D) I can't find her download, is she on your Gallery? If so, what is your Origin ID? <3
Hi sweet nonny ❤️ You can find her tray files here(everything including her cc is linked on the post!) but if you have any issue, just message me and I’ll give you my origin id privately, if you don’t mind!
As a kid, I knew that something wasn’t quite right with the events that unfolded at the time. Even though it was never brought up again under any circumstances by either one of my parents, it’s something that always stuck with me. I can’t say it’s a memory that I tried to suppress seeing as it was always there at the back of my mind, bothering me like an itch that wouldn’t go away unless properly scratched.
Nobody ever talks about Emeraude’s acting. Isabelle Lightwood was the highlight for me in the last episode. We watch her go through painful withdrawals, sweating and shaking. We see the look of desperation in her eye as she begs for a bite; the measures she’s willing to take to get that high.
Emeraude Toubia completely blew me away in 2x11. Her acting was phenomenal, and she deserves credit for that. It isn’t easy to play an addict, to let yourself be vulnerable and desperate. It’s not easy to show a withdrawal. But she did, and she utterly slayed her performance.
So I was rewatching the beginning of The Avengers and I noticed something
When Clint shoots Fury, he shoots at his chest, which seemed like an odd choice to me. If Clint had been far away or not one of the best marksman SHIELD’s got it would make more sense to aim for center mass instead of the head, which is unprotected and much more likely to be a lethal shot if hit, but Clint’s up close and there’s no way he couldn’t hit Fury straight through his damn eyepatch if he wanted to. But he doesn’t. He aims for the chest. Fury comments that he always wears a bulletproof vest, and considering Clint’s frequent contact with Fury and his attention to detail he can’t be unaware of this. Clint shot Fury the one place where Nick had a chance of surviving while still looking out for the count.
Further, in his initial encounter with Maria Hill after that, he shoots at her and doesn’t manage to hit her. It’s easy to give Maria all the credit for this (and I’m not for an instant trying to downplay how good of an agent she is) but the fact is that Clint “I Never Miss” Barton goes on to shoot a goddamn thumb drive into a usb port. If he wanted to hit Maria, he could have.
But he didn’t.
Clint Barton was fighting Loki’s control with everything he had. Loki had a fucking infinity stone, there’s no way that Clint could overcome that, but maybe, just maybe, he could resist enough to save his friends.
tl;dr Clint is so much stronger than everyone gives him credit for
what she means:
why do people perceive christine daae as weak? between her attempts at defying the phantom, her willingness to sacrifice her own happiness for the man she loves, and her ability to be genuinely empathetic and compassionate towards erik while still not putting up with his bullshit makes her arguably the most emotionally strong person in the show. furthermore, while she is naive and overly-trusting of erik at the start, people forget that up until that point, he's given her no reason to be wary of him (that she knows), and her character arc is her maturing enough as a person to be able to remove herself from the toxic relationship she and erik are in, and be able to move on with her life. christine is kind, compassionate, and far braver than most viewers give her credit for and
breaking the cycle: gotg2 and the theme of toxic masculinity
It’s taken me, oh, about a month to organize my thoughts on
this and they’re still a mess, but I have all these snippets in my head about how GOTG2
deconstructs toxic masculinity, and hey! you’re gonna get them now
masculinity is basically the concept that socializing men and boys to
be a certain ‘masculine’ way, and criticizing them or ridiculing them
when they fail to live up to these (often impossible or even abusive)
standards, is ultimately harmful to everyone, men and women alike. Ever
wonder why you flinch at dudes yelling “man up!” to their crying young
sons instead of comforting them? Yeah, that’s why.
regarding GOTG: a lot of this stuff revolves around Yondu and the Yondu-Peter relationship, but also (I totally love this) a large portion of it also revolves around a white, straight,
able-bodied man who is quite literally called ‘Ego’. spoilers follow,
I was going to save this post until after finals were over
for me BUT THEN I REMEMBERED IT IS MY DARLING PRINCESS’S BIRTHDAY TODAY AND
WHAT BETTER WAY TO CELEBRATE HER BIRTHDAY THAN TO MAKE A POST THAT CELEBRATES
Now I won’t go into overall details about her because I
already did that in this post that you can read right here, which I essentially
discussed how she’s actually an amazing WSJ heroine and whoever voted her the
worst should put their heads in sand because they don’t deserve to see the rest
of the world (I kid I kid, promise!).
Rather, I wanted to challenge the viewpoints people have of
her and really argue on the fact that Ochako Uraraka is actually more of a
complex character than we give her credit for. Most often than not, the fandom
looks towards Katsuki or Izuku or even Todoroki and they build them up and go
on and on about their complexity in the series. Hell, those three are my friend’s
favorite characters and they are fan favorites for a multitude of reasons that
they deserve. I myself have made numerous posts about Katsuki since we are
given such complex views of him as well as the others in the series. They are
the main focus in the story and their growth has been some of the best we’ve
ever seen in a series.
However, characters iike Ochako, who actually does have a
lot of complexity and dimensionality, get lost in their wake and I really want
to talk about that.
Most often than not, when we see Ochako, we see this bubbly
smiling girl who has such a wonderful and positive attitude that sometimes
comes off ditzy. One glance at her and the words that come to mind are cute,
adorable, fluffy, etc because that is the type of character that she mostly is.
She is the female support of Izuku and the way she contributes to the story is
with her adorable attitude that lightens up the mood in certain situations like
the Ground Zero fight and even the room competition (did you see how cute she
was with Iida’s glasses!?).
Yet, what bothers me and possibly other really hardcore fans
of her is that she isn’t just this bubbly character that smiles on the side but
she does have complex issues that really makes her character more interesting
in comparison to other characters.
I mean for starters, this girl is the QUEEN of keeping her
emotions from people and really suppressing them in most situations and not letting
them get in the way of what she wants to get done.
For example, the first real example of this is when she lost
to her fight with Katsuki.
Now let’s remember
situational factors going into this: we just found out her true goals into
going to heroics (which was said in a much more serious tone than we had ever
seen from her before)
we found out she was incredibly nervous to be facing Katsuki
(and again WAS SUPPRESSING HER EMOTIONS)
we saw her rejecting Izuku’s help (as well as her little
speech about feeling ashamed)
we saw her PUTTING HER ALL INTO THAT FIGHT TO SHOW HER TRUE STRENGTH
So seeing her crying when she’s speaking to her family isn’t
just some small defeated thing but it really gives us so much insight in her
character and who she is as a person. We finally see how truly hard she is on herself and the perfectionist personality that she usually keeps hidden from others. You can even see by her facial expression when Izuku left that she put on a face for him to not let him get more worried then he already was.
And then don’t even get me started with her attitude during
the Hero License Exam because oh my gosh, that was so powerful from her.
From that, we first see her being so strategic af:
Then we get this amazing speech from Izuku about her and how he could have told
the difference between her and Kemi (notice the plan part!)
Of course her being a BA here cuz eh why not, she’s really grown from her
THEN LET’S SKIP TO HER PUSHING HER FEELINGS DOWN FOR IZUKU
There are so many moments of Ochako that I missed that would have proved my
point even further than this but these moments here showcase how complex and
really interesting Ochako is as a character.
The bubbly personality that we see from her is only a piece
of the whole picture and you could even argue that she’s so good at suppressing
her emotions that it’s the personality she chooses to portray to others to keep
her other emotions away from people because she doesn’t want to burden others.
I personally don’t know if that’s true at all and maybe it is, maybe it isn’t
but the fact is that she isn’t just some character that sits on the side and
looks cute and adorable. There are so elements about her that makes her
different and the fight she had with Katsuki really changed her as well as her
inspiration from Izuku. She took both of those interactions with those
characters and used them to better herself and it’s just SO POWERFUL. Not many
shounen female heroines do that so it’s so refreshing to have Ochako be the way
Overall, as obvious as it must be, Ochako is one of my
favorite characters and I’m so excited to see the growth she’s going to have
more in the series. Her feelings for Izuku got cut off during the exam so that’s
an arc we need to get from her and I know I want to see Ochako kicking Katsuki’s
ass and actually winning to show how much she’s grown from the beginning. I
have so much hope that Horikoshi has so many plans for her character and I’m so
excited to see what he has in store for her and how he will continue to build
Regardless, Happy Birthday Ochako!
TLDR: Ochako is a very complex character and I wish more
people celebrated that.
I know this is an nct blog but bear with me for a sec
Not to be bitter but why is eunhyuk aka lee hyukjae of super junior not counted among SM’s best rappers? Eunhyuk was SM’s original rapper along with Shindong (unless someone in DBSK rapped, in which case i apologize for not knowing) and yet i still see yall say that SM doesnt have good rappers? Yeah maybe he’s not a hip hop artist or whatever but you cant deny that he has talent? And yall are overlooking it???
Like have none of yall seen “Dear. TWO”? Hyuckjae poured his fucking heart out, talking about his difficulties as an idol with key lyrics such as “I, listening to words like ‘Don’t become trash, become a lie’ am also fake” and “The one who’s changed is you guys, what more do you want from me?”
I know this is late as he’s currently serving military duty, but it needs to be said. I’ll link “Dear. TWO” when i get off mobile.
So I wanted to dissect a certain scene in Lady Wifi between Marinette and Tikki where they’re briefly discussing the secret identity situation, and just to cover my bases I went to check the translation from the original french since netflix just gives the subtitles from the English dub.
Getting to that in a moment.
The whole point of this post was not to just touch on Chat Noir and Ladybug’s secret identities being withheld from each other because it’s smart, as I make a post about this at least once a week. I wanted to mostly point out an interesting piece of dialogue exchange between Tikki and Marinette suggesting that while Marinette decided to listen to her head and be smart about her identity in the end, her heart was telling her something different.
This is the english dub, by the way. We can only guess how their conversation went before this scene opened, but it’s clear that they’re discussing Chat Noir. My whole post was suppose to just center around this moment, about how here Marinette is revealing that her heart wants her to just go ahead and tell Chat Noir who she was, the only thing stopping her being her sense of caution. Just, you know, an affirmation that Marinette keeping her identity a secret from Chat Noir has nothing to do with not wanting to know him, or being afraid of him knowing her. It’s a secret because it’s smart, but don’t ever doubt how much she actually cares about Chat Noir.
This was suppose to be the end of the post, but then I read the translation of the french version for accuracy’s sake. The difference was actually pretty amazing.
Tikki: I know it’s hard to keep things from your best friend, but no one must know that you’re Ladybug!
Marinette: You’re right, TIkki. All of my loved ones will be safe as long as my secret stays in here. *Points to her head*
Well first off, let me get out of the way how annoyed I am that the ‘a superhero listens to her head’ quote wasn’t the exact translation. Second, Tikki is a lot more firm about her stance on Marinette’s identity and even is urging her to not tell anyone, unlike the english version where it seems like she’s just trying to understand Marinette’s thoughts on the matter. She also seems to be talking about Alya in this situation, which threw the BIGGEST wrench in this post, but I suppose the sentiment is the same no matter who Tikki is talking about.
Truthfully, I’m unsure which translation to take more seriously. Normally I would say always go with the french version, but I know english is also taken into consideration very seriously even when animating the show. It also seems very purposeful that we have Marinette staying firm in listening to her head despite what her heart’s telling her, and having this scene take place almost right after Adrien having his own moment of saying he was just following his heart.
I suppose it doesn’t matter in the end because the sentiment is the same, even if it isn’t word for word the same between translations. Marinette doesn’t want keep secrets from her friends, but she does so because it’s smart and safer for everyone. It doesn’t really matter if Tikki was talking about Chat Noir or Alya in the end, either, because they’re both very important to Marinette and there’s no reason why it would be hard to keep this secret from Alya but not her own partner. The scene where Ladybug tells Chat Noir ‘no one can know, not even us’ is said while she looks so upset, yet resigned, it seems so obvious to me that she wouldn’t mind him knowing who she was, if there wasn’t the danger present.
