give people what they want

anonymous asked:

hi so this is kind of a weird question but do you ever think dan and phil sorta play off our obsessive theories and stuff and "act gay" as fan service? (like dan says, "giving the people what they want.") i hate the idea and don't think it's true but sometimes they'll do highly requested stuff like the hair curling video and I start to wonder??? and then there's tons of anti-dnp people saying they're fake and it freaks me out idk. just curious as to what your thoughts are

nah i don’t think they “act gay” as fan service (and both of them have openly said they’re bisexual in old formspring posts) so they’re not really “acting” if anything. also when dan says stuff like “it’s what the people want” and all that i’m pretty sure it’s just his way of making his closeness with phil seem more relaxed. dan has always been a very private person when it comes to personal things, and im sure their possible romantic relationship would definitely be in that mix. as for them doing highly requested things, i honestly think that they want to do it for their own enjoyment? like there are definitely a lot of youtubers who will do whatever their subscribers request (which is fine) but dnp never really do any video ideas if they truly don’t wanna do it, ya know? i mean damn the phandom has literally been screaming at dnp to play monopoly for ages and they still haven’t smh. in conclusion though i don’t think it’s fair to say that they “act gay” for fan service. there are so many youtubers who ACTUALLY do that (such as joe and casper who will literally make clickbait yt titles about them being romantic). honestly i wish some people would just get it out of their heads that they’re “acting gay” when maybe… just m a y b e… they’re just being themselves around each other in a gotdamn video

Thanks for the ask! :)

32. How do you feel about Gaunter O’Dimm?

I think Gaunter is legitimately one of the greatest characters ever made. He is truly unique. I love he really blurs the lines between good and evil. He says that he gives people what they ask for and not what they want. Which is true. Even if he does have bad intentions or is a demon, he is a “man” of his word and I like that. On top of that his voice acting was top notch. I defeated him on all my playthroughs of Hearts of Stone but I still think he is pretty cool and he has only ever helped Geralt which is something that I liked because it made the choice a more difficult one.

34. How do you feel about Avallac’h?

Annoying ass elf man. He is just so smug and creepy to me. I don’t hate him but the way he talks about Ciri really rubs me the wrong way. He shows very little respect for all that Geralt and Yen did for her and that they are her parents which angers me. He was way better and cuter as Uma. #WeWantUma

16. What mods do you use?

I play on PS4 so I am unable to use mods. Even if I did play on PC, I probably wouldn’t use many.

sometimes i have doubts about my career, but i know what i want. i want to be an artist. i want to create things to share with others, to share my experiences, my sadness and my joy. i want to give others what people have given me; a story, a friend, a way to feel less alone, a way to laugh, an opening to another world. i want to create something to share, something that will live on even after im gone.

i am an artist, and i always will be.

Okay, are you ready for this? Don’t say I never treat you. Do you guys, right now, want some fan service? Do you want me to just give the people what they want? … Okay, you’re not ready for this, you’re not ready for this. Are you ready? You’re just gonna die. You’re not ready for this. Okay, this is going to be insane. You’re not ready for this. So we were out having lunch with our friend Laura and then I had to go meet up with my mum, who was in town, because I left my denim jacket at their house over Christmas - boring. And I went outside in just [the weed jumper] and this is really cold, right? ‘Cause when the wind blows and such and it’s been really warm in London recently but I went out and it was like freezing and I had to go walk for like twenty minutes to meet my mum, so you know what I did? While Phil was going home and I was going for a walk? I asked Phil if I could borrow his coat and I DID. Holy shit. So for twenty minutes today, I was wearing Phil’s coat. That-that… I mean, don’t say I never do anything for you. Okay? Don’t say… don’t say I don’t give the trash cans what they want. Don’t say I’m too busy acknowledging what the casual viewers and the calm people that don’t like crazy people, that leaves comments on my videos saying ‘Dan, this doesn’t represent me. I’m a normal person. I really don’t like watching these danisnotonfire videos where you're crying all the time. I feel like it’s too intense. We’re not all like that.’ You know, so there you go. I mean honestly.

Quotes from Dan (44/?)

The fan service that Dan thinks we deserve apparently.

quotes from the signs of how they view themselves and their signs

aries: “I’m opinionated and when something intrigues me or is brought to my attention I really like to research it and learn about it so I’m like super great to come to for advice. I can be really aggressive in a way like not physically but emotionally and I’m reckless. I like to have fun”

taurus: “umm im really closed off n not many people know the REAL me like no one really knows the inside me u know like i dont share my feels n like im really loving n caring n emotional n i can be kinda dramatic but like cancers overshadow us”

gemini: “well i think there are definitely ~two sides of me~ but i think it’s like that for everyone”

cancer: “the stereotype about us being like huge crybabies isn’t entirely true like i think i’m just as emotional as the next person but i feel like cancers are a lot stronger than people believe they are and we’re problem solvers too even though people generally see us as problem creators. i don’t think i’ve ever met a cancer that didn’t have a huge heart yknow like i’m super loving and caring and i think that more than being like crybaby emotional we’re lovey dovey emotional. great at giving advice bc we’re super logical and parental. of all the signs i’d say we’re the most similar to lawyers. we also talk a lot”

leo: “i say i don’t care what people think of me but i really do, i hate making other people upset idontknow anymore i was trying to be inspiring for you but that’s all i got”

virgo: “i pay attention to every single detail about anyone and everyone. i have very good sense of judgement and truth. i’m very hard on myself, very insecure. i think very logically and cautiously. i dont even know much more i see of myself, but i’ll tell you one thing, the most important, virgos love. they love so fucking hard. i’d say more than anyone else. I WAS GONNA MAKE IT REALLY GOOD AND LONG AND MEANINGFUL BUT I HAVE TO PEE SO BAD I WAS HOLDING IT WHILE THINKING”

libra: “Smart funny but indecisive as hell cant make up their own mind if their life depended on it. Generally very good hearted people and there for others. Not easily discouraged but can get lazy easily and unfocused from the task at hand. Aesthetic sign in love with all that is beautiful and pleasing to see and feel.”

scorpio: “uhh I really want to be loved and accepted and I think that’s why I’m really sexually driven like I give the people what they want in exchange for what I want”

sagittarius: “idk i don’t really care about anything like i’m laid back but i also care a lot about everything??? if you make me mad i can be really like cold towards you and i’ll make it known that i’m upset. i’m loving and caring and i protect the ones i love”

capricorn: “Capricorns are definitely hard workers and very goal oriented and do things that they set their minds too like everyone says but I also think many capricorns are sensitive and parental but also children at heart”

aquarius: “i like to be alone but in the presence of people i’m kinda backwards idk i’m shy but with close friends i am a lunatic also why is aquarius an AIR SIGN LIKE THE LOGO FOR IT IS LITERALLY TWO WAVES WHY ISN’T IT WATER LIKE AQUA-RIUS HELLO”

pisces: “I guess I’m funny. I care for people a lot but when it comes to them needing help, idk how to help bc I’m a piece of shit! But I’m a pretty good listener. In relationships I think I’m a pretty good partner bc I give it my all but I can be a piece of shit.”

  • People: I can't believe Damien's not a Slytherin!
  • Me: What? Have you ever met a LESS ambitious person? He could do literally anything he wanted to the world. He could start or end wars. He could restructure the government. He could end hunger and poverty. He could appoint himself king of everything. And what does he do? He skips lines and makes people tell him their secrets!
Seungbae, The Hero?

After chapter 23, I feel like I need to write about Seungbae from an unbiased POV. Let’s see what kind of a person Seungbae really is. Is he the hero of the story?

Reasons why Seungbae is a good cop:

1. He’s strict about law.
2. He’s focused on his job.
3. He’s good at remembering and connecting the details.
4. He wants to do good.
5. He’s motivated.
6. He has a good instinct.

Reasons why Seungbae is a bad cop:

1. He breaks the law when he thinks it’s convenient while expecting others to always obey the law.
2. He indeed ‘makes up stories’ often (even if they are true) because he relies on gut feelings a lot rather than logical, solid evidences.
3. His obsession with Sangwoo for petty reasons.
4. He considers himself above the law and better than everyone else.
5. He’s edgy and mentally unstable.
6. He got demoted once before.
7. He gets physical/violent when things don’t go his way.
8. He abuses his authority as a police officer.

Things Seungbae has done wrong as a cop:

1. Abusing his authority to get what he wants.
2. Lying to get into someone’s house and without a warrant.
3. Hiding evidences from his superiors.
4. Secretly investigating a ‘case’ without telling his superiors about it.
5. Pressuring/trying to manipulate someone into giving him the black box (even though black boxes are private the person could decline).
6. Threatening/blackmailing people into giving him what he wants.
7. Peeking into someone’s property (and ‘linger/loiter’).
8. Stalking.
9. Assaulting another police officer
10. Hacking his superior’s computer.
11. Using his police badge illegally to force people into giving him information.
12.
After seeing the footage of Sangwoo assaulting someone, he was not concerned about that person’s safety but he’s still obsessing over Sangwoo.
(Some of these are from @ikemen-in-suitslist)


Why Seungbae seems like a good guy:

Between Bad and Worse and The Worst, he’s the bad!
People who work in the police department are constantly slacking off and are pretty much useless. The only person who’s trying to do his job properly is Seungbae. So despite all the unlawful, wrong things he’s done, he seems like a good person because everyone else is horrible.
And the reason fans also see him as a saint is because he is constantly being compared to a serial killer. ‘So if Seungbae doesn’t kill people brutally, he must be a good guy.’ (?) But he is indeed trying to do good.


Is Seungbae really a smart cop?

No!
All the evidences he’s found so far were by luck. The hair happens to be from Sangwoo’s house and belong to Bum. The driver who was speeding happens to be Sangwoo, he happened to see them and so he managed to get his black box. Whether he’s getting closer to the serial killer or not, Seungbae’s approach is very comical and illogical. A normal, good officer would connect the solid, logical evidences together to find the killer. But what Seungbae is doing is placing the one person he’s obsessing over - for trivial reasons and because of his gut feelings - in the middle and trying to connect all the crimes to him instead. He’s going backwards.

He remembers a case from 3 years ago, his first thought is “It could be Sangwoo’s work.”
He finds a black hair on his foot (which is a pretty common color in Asia), his first thought is “It must be from Sangwoo’s house.”
He finds out a girl is missing, he doesn’t suspect any of her friends but “What about Sangwoo?”
He finds out a guy is missing, his first thought, “It could be Sangwoo’s work”
He talks to witnesses, his first question “Do you know this guy? Oh Sangwoo?”

There are millions of people out there doing suspicious things. Why does Seungbae just assumes Sangwoo must be the killer and even goes as far as to investigate it? His evidences are nothing but gut feelings, guesses and luck. So no, I think being smart and having a good instinct are different. He’s a pretty lucky guy!

“…he’s smart and really good at connecting the dots. people say he’s a bad cop but he has to do some wrong things in his situation to be able to do anything at all!“  

This is an ask I got I’m going to ignore the sarcasm that was in the beginning, anon >_>.
This is true. As I already mentioned, he is indeed good at connecting the dots but what are the dots? Are the dots solid evidences or just gut feelings again? Yep, mostly gut feelings.
He suspected Sangwoo because he makes him uncomfortable.(!) He doesn’t like how calm Sangwoo is and as he mentioned before, Sangwoo creates different atmospheres every time and so Seungbae considers him a liar! Again without any solid evidence.

Conclusion:

Seungbae is not a hero but as for his role in the story, it seems like, he’s supposed to be a flawed hero (an anti-hero) and not a good person. At this point it seems like he will find out about Sangwoo and his crimes because he has a very good instinct. But when he does, he will probably be all alone, there won’t be anyone to ‘save’ and there’s a surprise waiting for him. Two killers instead of one.

please help!!

hey all, I know there’s a lot more important stuff going on right now, but I’m in a bit of a bad situation I need to get out of

I’ve finally decided to leave the toxic living situation I’m in. my mother’s behaviour towards me has been manipulative and abusive in nature and I’ve had enough. I’m trying to recover from severe depression and OCD, but this family situation has been pushing me to the point of suicidal planning every day and I know I can’t get better if I don’t leave.

however, one thing is stopping me right now: I’ve had to pay for my medical bills recently and have exactly $2.64 to my name. I really need some money (at least $50 AUD) so I can at least buy a bus ticket and a travel card for another city where I can stay with family and be with my social worker.

please help if you can by donating to my paypal here, or just boosting/giving me some love and support!! <3
