has anyone pointed this out yet

Just a little something odd I noticed about Narti’s cat...

Here is Narti, one of the new Galra Generals

Here’s what we know about Narti 

(EDIT: thanks to @swirnn​, who pointed out that Narti has:)

“-Mysterious past.

-Unable to see or speak, however she can “see” through her galra cat.”

(emphasis mine)


Huh, that’s some pretty distinctive coloration, kinda reminds me of something….

Honerva’s cat, Kova!

“But wait!” you say. “Kova is so much fluffier than Narti’s seeing-eye cat! They aren’t the same!”

While it could be that cats in this sector of the universe just share coloration….

THIS is what Kova looks like post-quintessence experimentation.

Same coloration, body type, face markings, and tail as Narti’s cat.

What does it mean? Either Narti has a 10,000+ year old cat as a guide, all Galra cats look like that these days (which means that all galra cats have had quintessence added to them, or their ancestors), or Narti and her cat are specifically the results of quintessence experimentation, potentially by Honerva/Haggar herself.


As a final note: I also think it’s quite odd that Lotor and his squad all model their colors after Haggar’s old cat. I wonder what, if anything, this implies about Haggar’s involvement in the creation of these mixed species generals.

(Edited to give credit to @swirnn​ for original top image - which I’ve now switched to a different one - and notes about Narti, from this post)

The signs as lines from John Mulaney’s “The Comeback Kid”

Aries: This is an on-fire garbage can…could be a nursery

Taurus: [MOOING ANGRILY]

Gemini: I like having a puppy that’s a bulldog, cause it’s like having a baby that is also a grandma

Cancer: I am very small, and I have no money. So you can imagine the kind of stress that I am under.

Leo: No one wants to applaud the penis of a 32 year old weirdo

Virgo: You have the moral backbone of a chocolate eclair

Libra: aHHH! One feels like a duck splashing around in all this wet! And when one feels like a duck, one is happy!

Scorpio: Anyone who’s seen my dick and met my parents has to die. I can’t have them running around.

Sagittarius: Sometimes babies will point at me, and I don’t care for that shit at all

Capricorn: Eat ass, suck a dick, and sell drugs

Aquarius: Sometimes he will watch a movie on TV, even though he already owns that movie on DVD. Pointing this out to him confuses and upsets him.

Pisces: My vibe is more like, “hey, you could pour soup in my lap, and I’ll probably apologize to you”

So uhhhh has anyone pointed out yet…

Remember how if you ask about Robert’s hand tattoo, he gets cold and stops talking?

This hand tattoo? Sorry if the pic is small

And if you’ve heard of Joseph’s secret cult ending (which isn’t in the game btw), then you’ve probably seen this picture

See that symbol in the back? That red, occult symbol?

What does that look like hm?

Robert was in Joseph’s cult

Easter Egg in Revali's Flap

I started rewatching some of Link’s memories and found something really interesting!

In the second memory, Revali’s Flap, there’s a brief moment where the camera turns around and pans the scene as Revali scoffs at the idea of being Link’s side kick. Pardon my taking a photo of my own screenshot, but take a look:

Here we can see a few generic-looking dark crimson-colored Rito in the background, all adults– two are talking off to the right while another is up on a ledge to the left. Those are in the scene to start. But for a VERY brief moment, another Rito appears on screen!

A little blue Rito child is shown running through, ascending the village. This looks like Cree, one of Kass’s daughters, but seeing as how this is taking place 100 years ago, that can’t possibly be the case.

I think this is supposed to be baby Kass! Or if Rito have lifespans closer to actual birds, this could possibly be one of his parents. Either way, it’s a nice touch!

please help me find Bootsie

so uhh I rly rly hate to have to reblog this again, but Bootsie has gotten outside again, and he’s been gone for nearly a month (as of reblogging this again, 6/11/17). we live on a pretty busy street, but he was more likely to have run off toward the houses and back roads whenever he got out before. im really worried, but at this point if something happened i’d rather just have some peace of mind.

he was wearing a red spiked collar last we saw him, so hopefully people would know he wasnt a feral cat, but ran off.)unfortunately we hadn’t gotten him a tag yet. (the one we had actually came in a few days after he ran off)

so if any of my followers know anyone in or around Norton, Massachusetts, has any information, PLEASE contact me here, or on my sideblog @tunnelsaints​.

This masterpost has been done over and over again to the point that you probably have this iconic list memorized. 

Since this is the case, I don’t want to bore anyone with the same old explanations and instead give you some information you haven’t heard/read yet.

So to begin, I’ll start with what to include in your notes and explain exactly why doing this is helpful.

-

Notes are meant to be reviewed, the sole purpose of notes is to use them as a study method. However, many people miss the target altogether when writing out their own notes and make it much more difficult to revise them later on.

S T E P 1 : H E A D E R S

Most textbooks will make their topics and subtopics very evident in order to keep students “interested” and focused on reading the passage. In general, it makes the textbook more organized and easier to read. We want exactly this for our notes so we include headers and sub headers to help as a guide later on.

S T E P 2 : A B B R E V I A T I O N S

It is good to set up your own personal abbreviations especially for note-taking. It’s already difficult as it is trying to follow along with a teacher’s presentation so make it easier on yourself by incorporating them.

o Examples:

  • Ex. | Example
  • Imp. | Important
  • Info. | Information
  • w/ | With
  • w/o | Without
  • Pg. | Page
  • Govt. | Government
  • b/c | Because

S T E P 3 : T W O  C O L U M N

This is a method of note-taking I took from Cornell Notes. If you are familiar with them then you know that CN include two columns: one for the main information and another for questions to ask yourself later on. In the picture at the end you will see how I used this method slightly differently so that I could create a form of sub headers in the first column. Like I said, we want to be able to easily read our notes and I found that this was most helpful in doing so. Every time I went back to them it was given that I could just glance at the left column to find the information I wanted.

S T E P 4 : B U L L E T  P O I N T S

This one has probably been mentioned numerous times already so I’ll try not to drag this one on. Bullet points basically just make it easier to read the notes. When you search online for ways to make your acne go away do you read the article with paragraphs first or do you resort to the article with bullet points? Bullet points all the way. It’s easier to register the information in your mind and just makes it quicker to skim through your notes as well.

S T E P 5 : H I G H L I G H T I N G  S Y S T E M

One of the first things I do at the beginning of each school year is create a key for my highlighters. Having a set color for each part of your notes allows you to have a better understanding of your own notes and is great for directing you through them afterwards.

o Examples:

  • Green | Vocab
  • Orange | Topic
  • Blue | Subtopic
  • Purple | Title
  • Yellow | Chapter  #
  • Pink | Imp. Info.

Putting it all together, you get much simpler and extremely helpful notes! For reference, these are the ones I used to create this list:

So that’s the basics! There is so much more to note-taking, however, true to the title, these are only the basics! I will go more in depth about notes for certain classes, different types of notes, textbook and class notes, and much much more later on in the series. Please do look forward to them! Check out the rest of the series and what I have planned here.

-much love, studyessie ♡

I’d like to this point out (I haven’t seen anyone else do so yet) but I find it interesting that Rick’s memory of “where you were on 911” actually has him legitimately, visibly upset.

When it comes to 911, one would think Rick would be the type to:
a. Not care
b. Think they were asking for it
or c. Care but not really show it.

The fact that Rick is legit concerned for the wellbeing of people he most likely doesn’t know is very interesting to me. It really fleshed out a bit of his character we rarely see-his humanity.

Either that or this is a fake memory also. Take your pick.

Reasons to read Captive Prince it has quotes like

  • What’s a death but easy, quick. It’s supposed to haunt you forever that the one time he beat you was the one time that mattered.
  • I don’t share your craven habit of hitting only those who cannot hit back, and take no pleasure in hurting those weaker than myself.
  • Like a man who enjoys owning an animal who will rake others with its claws but eat peacefully from his own hand, he was giving his pet a great deal of license.
  • A golden prince was easy to love if you did not have to watch him picking wings off flies.

It also has quotes like

  • You hit like a milk-fed catamite.
  • How lucky I am to have servants to point out my shortcomings.
  • “Is there anyone at this court who isn’t my enemy?’
    ‘Not if I can help it,’ Laurent said.
  • Laurent could inspire homicidal tendencies simply by breathing.
  • Nephew. you were not invited to these discussions.’
    ‘And yet, here I am. It’s very irritating, isn’t it?’
  • Damen had never before seen half a dozen soldiers reduced to compliant housekeeping by the sheer force of one man’s personal arrogance.
  • Yesterday I brutalised him. Today I am swooning into his arms. I would prefer the charges against me to be consistent. Pick one. 
  • Yes, apparently I have fucked my enemy, conspired against my future interests, and colluded in my own murder. I can’t wait to see what feats I will perform next.

Roman not liking Anxiety does not make him a bad person.

Roman still not accepting Anxiety does not make him a bad person.

it just means there’s some issues that he needs to work on with the other side.

He can’t help how his feeling and there may be a deeper reason as to why he’s feeling that way

That being said I’m not saying that we should overlook the way he’s been treating Anx all this time, we just can’t demonize him for a couple of mistakes especially if he can’t help what he’s feeling.

We haven’t even seen the second part of the video yet things can get better between Roman and An

Roman can still develop because that’s the whole point of this videos for them to develop as characters

Let’s not assume anything bad until we have the whole story.

So anyone out there who are all “I used to like Roman but now he’s a bad guy.” he’s not! He’s just a well-rounded character that has flaws.

We’re still allowed to love him.

Ch 93: Not the end for Ymir?

Chapter 93 gave us the confirmation that Ymir has in fact been eaten by Galliard, Marcel’s brother, seemingly marking the ending point of her character once and for all. Given the context of the new episode, as well as the little focus or pages dedicated to her apparent last moments, many of us are very upset with the seemingly lackluster climax of her character arc; and her decision to abandon Historia to save RB and let herself be killed seems to go very much against everything her characterization according to many fans. 

The point of this post isn’t to argue about any of that, but instead, to illuminate a possible indicator that we may have not seen the last of everyone’s favorite goddess.

Please let us think back to chapter 50; one of the most impactfull and monumental chapters in the entire series, for many reasons. It marks the only time so far in the story that Eren has successfully manipulated the founding titan within him, the godlike power at the center of the current (and probably final) plot, aimed at his very first enemy; that alone marks a milestone in the series, not to speak of the various character interactions happening along the way. Among others, this chapter also marks the moment Ymir chooses to abandon Historia, the person she seems to care for more than anyone else, despite the fact that the coordinate marks a real hope for the walled world to survive the dangers Ymir is aware of. 

Now, despite the fact that this game changing power debuts in this chapter, the narrator this time around focuses on one arguably lesser important event: the aforementioned separation. Let’s look at it.

“At the time, we didn’t know what Ymir’s actions meant. But after that, the armored titan stopped chasing after us”-narrator, chapter 50.

This narration is interesting for various reasons. First of all, it marks one of the rare occasions in which the narrator is not impersonal, but in fact identifies with present characters. Other notable occasions of this include Kenny’s flashback in 69, and Eren’s description of the photograph in chapter 85 (both chapters with heavy plot and thematic value for the story, just like ch 50, if I may add). Here, the narrator refers to himself as part of a group, but opposes themselves against the armored titan, implying narrator is not part of RB’s team, but in fact of the Survey Corps escaping back to the walls (most likely part of the EMA, maybe even Armin himself considering Marina Inoue typically voices the narrator. We should hear that animated soon enough). 

That’s not the only thing the narrator is implying though. The use of the past tense as well as “at the time” is crucial. It literally means that, although they did not understand Ymir during chapter 50; at the time of narration, some form of understanding is clearly present. If, at the time of narration, the narrator was still as clueless as back then, there would be no need for “at the time” of past tense, but this particular formulation very much implies that an understanding of Ymir’s actions is very much there in the present time. And here’s the thing: even though Ymir’s death has been confirmed, our characters among which the narrator finds himself have yet to reach a point of understanding Ymir’s actions.

First of, let’s determine “Ymir’s actions”. Ymir herself is a big mystery to our cast, but according to the narrator, Ymir’s actions are what directly precedes the armored titan not following narrator and co; in which case, “Ymir’s actions” has to refer to her abandonment of Historia and her helping out R and B. In that case, the narration above implies the following: the narrator part of the surviving SC forces will eventually come to understand the meaning behind Ymir’s betrayal. Now, as of chapter 93, let’s ask the question: Does anyone present back then understand Ymir?

yeah……

Ymir herself expresses surprise at her actions, Ymir herself is unsure of her actions when writing the letter, which marks the most recent time anyone inside the walls has received information concerning Ymir. As of chapter 90, the last moment we spent with whomever the ch 50 narrator is, said narrator has yet to reach a point of understanding Ymir. OUR CAST STILL DOES NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF HER ACTIONS, AS FORETOLD BY CHAPTER 50. Isn’t that basically a confirmation that Ymir’s story isn’t done yet?

You may counterargue that its been 4 years and that Isa has changed his mind since, esp since he doesn’t want to drag the story out at anymore. But I find it so hard to believe that, in one of the most important chapters in the series, one that is still relevant to this day, the narrator focuses on this one plot point that simply ends up dropped over the course of the series. Chapter 50 is too important for that kind of redesign, wouldn’t you say? Who knows, maybe it’ll wind up different in the anime and will mark a retrofit by Isayama that fits better in line with 89 being the end of her story, but until we see it animated, I’ll chose to keep doubting that.

As for how Ymir’s story can still be told to our main cast? Here’s one possible option: Galliard

 According to the (admittedly bad) fan translation, Galliard understands Ymir and her wish to bring back her titan-something neither us readers nor the narrator in question do as of right now. Granted, this could just be terrible translation, but Galliard could wind up being the gateway between Ymir and the main cast. Or its something entirely different. In a story about time travelling memories, matter that forms out of thin air, and the literal power of a god capable of reshaping the planet and controlling an entire species, death seems like a far too small barrier to stop someone from being relevant to the story, one way or another.

Since the majority of this argument is based off the lines spoken by the narrator in 50, there is a minor chance this is all ridiculous blunder if the official translation turns out to somehow differ from the Japanese original, and if anyone knows if it does, I would appreciate if you could inform me. But otherwise, I personally will start taking those words from chapter 50 as heavy evidence Ymir’s story hasn’t fully been told yet. I don’t want to create false hopes for anyone, but until proven otherwise, I don’t think it’s too unreasonable to believe in it. 

So after 406 airs, we will be looking at ten weeks until the season finale airs. There will only be seven episodes airing afterwards, which means that we’re looking at three weeks of those ten where there won’t be any new episodes airing.

If those three weeks all happen at the same time, that’ll be about a month of hiatus, you guys.

The mistletoe

After so many years Draco should already know that he shouldn’t piss Pansy off, but, since he doesn’t now he had to suffer the consequences.

It was the week before Christmas break and Pansy was feeling extra inspired by the holidays when she decided to point her wand at Draco and now he had to walk around with a mistletoe hovering above his head.

“What do you mean this will only go away once I kiss the person I love?”

“I mean exactly that, darling” she smirked. “Next time, don’t piss me off.”

“But I don’t love anyone” Draco tried.

“Shut up, Draco, if you didn’t the spell wouldn’t have worked.”

She smiled at him and left him alone, in the Slytherin common room, with a mistletoe on top of his head.

_________________________________

When Draco got to the Great Hall the normal noise of the conversations faded. The Slytherins were smirking at him – Pansy had already told them everything, probably; the Gryffindors were trying not to laugh, but it wasn’t really working; and the Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws were looking at him weirdly, but amused. Even the teachers were looking at him from the head table trying to understand what was in front of them.

Draco just raised an eyebrow, scowled and, with squared shoulders and head held high, headed to the Slytherin table.

“How are you, Draco?” Blaise smiled innocently.

“Good.”

“When are you going to get rid of that?” Pansy asked and Blaise laughed.

“Shut up, you two.”

That made Pansy and Blaise laugh even more and Draco asked himself the same question his friends had asked him before.

____________________________

For the rest of the week Draco walked around with the mistletoe, since he didn’t dare kiss the person he wanted to kiss.

“I can’t believe you didn’t get rid of that before the break” Pansy narrowed her eyes at him.

“I told you I don’t love anyone.”

“Shut up, Draco” she hugged him since the train was already ready to go. “We both know who you love.”

“Goodbye, Pansy, Blaise is already waiting for you.”

“Enjoy your holidays, darling.”

________________________________

Draco wasn’t sure if he would enjoy his holidays. He was one of the five only Slytherins that were staying at Hogwarts for the holidays and the other four were all younger than him.

After supper, Draco went to the library wanting to, at least, study in the holidays since there wasn’t much he could do. He was in the middle of a transfiguration essay when someone sat next to him.

“Whoever you are I’m not going to kiss you!” He said without looking up; he had already had some people going up to him offering a kiss because of the mistletoe.

“What makes you think I came here to kiss you, Malfoy?”

“What are you doing here, Potter?”

“I came here to study, hope you don’t mind.”

“Don’t let me stop you.”

They studied for some time, ignoring each other and focusing on the books and parchments in front of them.

“When is that going to go away?” Potter asked suddenly.

“What?”

“The mistletoe. It’s very distracting.”

“Why?”

Draco was really confused, not understanding what Potter was trying to tell him with this stupid conversation about the stupid mistletoe, but Potter started packing his things and got up before answering him.

“The answer to your question is that the mistletoe makes me want to follow the tradition” he grinned before exiting the library.

__________________________________

It was Christmas day and the students that had stayed at Hogwarts were having supper together, all sitting at the Hufflepuff table.

“Can I sit here?” Potter asked behind him.

“If you want to” Draco shrugged.

Harry smiled a little and sat next to him, starting a conversation with the Ravenclaw boy in front of him.

“Potter” Draco called when they had almost finished supper.

“Yes?” Harry looked at him.

“The other day in the library… what did you mean?”

“What did I mean when I said what?”

“Stop being difficult, you prat!”

“I mean exactly what I said… Draco.”

“Can people stop saying that?” He muttered. “And since when are we on first names basis, Potter?”

“You better get used to it and start calling me Harry.”

“You didn’t answer my question!”

“You know what I meant.”

“If I knew I wouldn’t be asking.”

Harry grinned and got closer to Draco in order to whisper on his ear.

“I meant that I want to kiss you and that that mistletoe on top of your head is making it harder to ignore the urge.”

Harry saw Draco blush and tried to hide his smile behind a spoon full of desert.

______________________________________

Harry was near the lake watching the sunrise; he had gotten up early just to watch it, the beautiful colours of the sun shining shyly and reflecting on the snow calmed him.

The sound of the snow crunching under footsteps made him rise his head and look at the place the sound had came from. He was surprised to see Draco appear in his view, but his lips curved into a smile when he saw the boy’s nose and cheeks red from the cold, making him look adorable.

“I didn’t know someone was here” he said once he was close enough for Harry to hear.

Draco moved his hand to take the hair out of his eyes and Harry’s eyes were drawn to the mistletoe above his head and his heart warmed with hope seeing that the blond boy hadn’t kissed anyone yet.

“Come sit with me” Harry smiled at him. “We can watch the sunrise together.”

“The sun has already raised, Potter.”

“I don’t care, just sit with me.”

Draco raised an eyebrow, but sat next to Harry anyway and looked at the view with a little smile on his face.

“I see you still haven’t done anything about that” he pointed at the mistletoe.

“Good to know your eyes work.”

Maybe if it was some years ago Harry would have answered in a different way, but now he couldn’t feel offended and he didn’t have the urge to reply in the same way so he just laughed like he never thought he would do with Malfoy.

“What are you laughing at, Potter?”

“It’s just… you’re funny, Draco.”

The other boy just looked at him surprised and, even though he tried to cover it, there was a smile on his lips when he faced the view again.

“What does it take to get rid of the mistletoe?” Harry asked curiously.

“A kiss.”

“Just that?”

“Yes.”

“Then why haven’t you kissed anyone yet?”

“Firstly, because I don’t go around kissing random people” he narrowed his eyes. “And because it has to be a kiss from the person I love.”

“And why haven’t you kissed that person yet?”

“Because I don’t think that that person wants to kiss me.”

“So you’re just going to walk around with that on top of your head your whole life?”

“Well, I don’t think this person would ever want to kiss me, but I’m hoping that Pansy has a counter spell.”

“Why do you say that that person would never want to kiss you?”

“Just drop it, Harry” he sighed.

“I don’t see why anyone would refuse to kiss you.”

“What?”

“I think you should just go for it, Draco. No one in the right state of mind, unless they are taken, would refuse you a kiss.”

Draco looked around with rosy cheeks that were like that not only because of the cold and a confused expression that made Harry’s heart warm and sad at the same time, because Draco shouldn’t be this insecure.

“I’m trying to give you a hint here, Draco. Stop overthinking and just get on with it.”

“Are you trying to say what I think you are trying to say or am I completely misunderstanding you?”

“I have to do it myself, don’t I?”

“Do what?”

“Honestly, Draco!” Harry shook his head with a chuckle.

Harry smiled at Draco with shiny green eyes and placed his hand on the back of his head, leaning forward and placing his lips on the other boy’s ones. Draco gasped a little and after a few seconds of wide eyed surprised he gripped Harry’s arms and kissed him back.

“I’m glad to see it’s gone” Harry smiled when the kiss ended.

“Is it?” Draco’s hands flew to the top of his head. “How did you know that it was you? How did you know that I love you?”

Harry sucked in a breath when he heard the other boy’s confession.

“I didn’t know, Draco, but I was hoping that you did.”

“Why?”

“Because I love you, too” Harry said simply and kissed him again.

Draco couldn’t help but think, when they were watching the beautiful colours of the early morning while walking back to the castle holding hands, that Pansy would be extremely disappointed to know that Draco and Harry kissed and he got rid of the mistletoe while she was still home.

Some of the worst questions in MBTI on-line tests

E-MAIL SUBMISSION

It’s been discussed a lot that MBTI tests on the internet are often unreliable. This is usually because they are often too vague, over-generalizing, but mostly because they fail to understand functions. 

But then, let’s face it, some questions/statements are just straight up asinine and cause so much more damage in understanding/interpretating the MBTI than anything else.

Here’s a few gems I’ve collected. I had to paraphrase some of these, but I merely tweaked a word or two. Note that they are also in no particular order. 

I am almost never late to an appointment

- Oh, you wacky P types! Not a care in the world…you just won’t let people tell what to do, will ya? Doctor has super important test results? Who cares! He can wait. Today’s the custody hearing for your kids? Meh! Not gonna get up early just for that. People should just chill a little instead of following all these rules and procedures all the time.

I always keep a “to do” list with me

If we have an idiotic P type question, then we need an equally idiotic J type question. Does anyone ever keep a “to do” list on them anymore? At work maybe. Notes on your phone, calendar sure. But this statement makes it sound like J types need to control everything all the way down to reminders that today they need to vacuum. It’s nice to know that scientific tests still narrow down J to organized and P to laid back. 

I cry during sad scenes in movies

Sucks to be a feeler. You need to bring tissues with you at movies all the time. Truth is, you shouldn’t have cried when Jack sank to the bottom of the ocean, but instead you should have been mad at Rose. There was plenty of space on that plank! By the way I’m not mocking you if you actually do cry during movies, I’m just saying this statement grossly misunderstands Feeling functions. 

Sometimes I get so lost in my head that I lose track of what’s happening around me

Oh look! An actual (somewhat) anti-Intuitive question. Sure some intuitives will relate, but this question actually points much more to a general introvert trait. 

I get anxious in stressful situations

Nevermind that this is a redundant statement, I mean, can a situation technically be “stressful” if you’re not stressed? But I legit have no idea what it’s supposed to point to anyways. 

I consider myself a motivated person

Again, no clue what this was supposed to point to. I thought maybe Thinking types? (Te). Turns out it’s a “J” question. Another strike against you P types. Looks like you’re not only late all the time, but you’re also lazy. 

I prefer reading a book than going to social events

As an introvert who never reads books, I find this very unrelatable, yet this is clearly where they’re going with this statement. Also, I know tons of extroverts who go through 6 novels within months. Why is reading always the stereotypical go-to activity when people think of introversion?

I often have mood swings/I consider myself emotionally stable

I decided to slap these two together since they make the same point (harshly might I add). Boy, some of these questions really have it out for Feelers. Kudos to anyone who has the guts to admit to themselves that they are both moody and emotionally unstable. That being said, seek help and it has nothing to do types, like, at all. 

I love nature and animals

First of all, these are two different things for many people. Second, like many previous statements, what are they suppose to point to? Third, way to make anyone who says “no” to this feel like a sociopath. 

And of course….

I consider myself creative/I don’t let others influence my beliefs. 

I put those two together and a the end of this list because they are absolutely the WORST questions on these tests. Not start another S vs. N debate, but the creative thing is by far the biggest reason there are so many people mistyping themselves. How many people are willing to admit that they are not creative at all? And it doesn’t automatically create an S/N split anyways. 

The second one…..who on Earth will answer “no” to this?? It’s basically admitting that your beliefs, you know, a HUGE part of what makes you, YOU, are fickle and unstable. Why not just go with “I consider myself a good person” while we’re at it. Maybe it actually points to Ne, you know, the ability to challenge one’s own beliefs and match them up against other points of view, but how many people will see this question as such?

The Case for Jonsa

So this is a massive compilation of every single scrap of evidence I can find for Jonsa. You’ve probably heard some of these before. I just wanted to put them all in one place and explain my theory for how I think it will happen. I’m spoiler free (somehow) so all of these are completely theories. I, like the ill-informed King in the North, know nothing.

So, let’s start out by addressing the dragon in the room.

You Trust Me, Right? pt. 2

Prompt: You’re a friend of Jacob’s–you’re basically his PA, like Harrison is with Tom. You’ve been able to hang out with them a lot and after a while, Tom started to develop feelings for you. 

Should we go for a part three and four?? Let me know. (I have something planned for two more, but I’d like to know if you’re interested.)

Warnings: fluff, some language

A/N: Requests are open! I will basically write anything (good luck finding something I won’t) and I can write for any of Seb’s characters (except Jack and Carter–I haven’t seen those yet) I can write Tom fanfic, Harrison fanfic, any marvel character, etc.

Part One     Part Three      Part Four


It took a total of five minutes upon walking into the hotel room for (Y/N) to collapse onto the bed. After having to land, a two hour layover, and then another anxiety ridden process of forcing herself back onto a plane and endure the whole thing over again, she was ready for food and a nap, unfortunately, they arrived in Singapore in the middle of the day. Sleep wouldn’t come for another eight hours and then who knows when she’d be able to wake up.

Everyone was tired and hungry but, for the most part, they were determined to make the best of their exhaustion and find anything relaxing to do around the hotel. It goes without saying that Tom, Harrison, and Jacob were much more devoted to this idea than she was. For some reason, when they booked the rooms, a block of three rooms on one end of the hall were chosen and then one single suite at the opposite end of the floor were given to them. She conveniently had the suite by herself at the opposite end of the building, meaning if any of the three boys needed anything, they had to seriously debate if it were worth getting up, walking all the way down the hall, and then having to go all the way back. This however was not to case when it came to their mission to stay awake.

“(Y/N)!” Jacob yelled. “(Y/N)! Open up!” She groaned loudly and dragged herself off the bed, trudging her feet across the room and opening the door.

“Hey, Harrison, Tom,” she smiled before turning toward Jacob. “What?” she grumbled as they locked eyes.

“There’s a pool,” he cooed while pushing past her and looking around her room. “Wow! You’re place looks way better than ours!”

“Yeah,” Harrison agreed. “We’re partying at your place tonight,” he teased as (Y/N) started to yawn. Tom was the last to enter and he pulled the door closed behind him then hurried toward Jacob who had already thrown open the balcony doors. (Y/N) caught her eyes drifting from the soft curl that hung along the base of Tom’s neck, down to his shoulders as they peeked around the tight tank top he had on, along his back, and finally landing on his small but cute ass.

“So you guys already changed into your swimsuits?” she asked, as she quickly tore her eyes from Tom and joined the boys at the balcony railing.

“We had to,” Jacob stated.

“Tom fell asleep as soon as he walked through the door,” Harrison added.

“I was almost there myself,” she grumbled before pushing herself away from the balcony and opening her suitcase. Tucked inside of a mesh pocket was a black two-piece swimsuit. She grabbed it and hurried into the bathroom where she stripped herself of her baggy clothes and slipped into the mid-rise bottoms and tied the swimsuit top around her neck, for some unconscious reason making it slightly too tight in order for her boobs to look bigger. When she finished, she pulled the oversized shirt back over her head and grabbed one of the bath towels draped over the rack on the wall.

“Ugh, you’re not swimming in that?” Jacob teased, remembering back to a time where she only swam in t-shirts because of continued jokes made at the expense of her body. It wasn’t her fault that her hips and breasts came in before anyone else in her class and yet she was ridiculed for it and ended up hiding her body for years because of it.

“I’m not going to walk through the hotel wearing less clothing than a hooker,” she snapped back earning a snort from Harrison and Tom.

“That would be entertaining,” Tom laughed as they walked out of her suite and toward the elevators. She tried to hide the light shade of red she could feel her face turning. Knowing that at some point Tom had liked her more romantically than as a friend has lead her to overanalyzing pretty much anything Tom said. This tidbit of information definitely wasn’t helping her psyche as she prepared herself to be practically naked in front of him as soon as they get to the pool.

As much as (Y/N) liked Zendaya, she was consistently jealous of the actress’s appearance. She was tall, slender, thin, all of the qualities that symbolize what a model should look like. (Y/N) on the other hand had struggled with the way she saw herself for the majority of her life. Whether it be from her parents joking about how she’d be ‘big as a house someday,’ the torment from being made fun of by the popular girls, as well as her consistent struggle to be healthy and look healthy while still seeming attractive, (Y/N) had suffered through it all. It was just recently that she started to accept herself and she didn’t want to be embarrassed in front of Tom.

Once they reached the floor that the pool was on, their jaws dropped.

“This is incredible!” Harrison gasped as the four gathered around some lounge chairs. The boys tore off their shirts an either eased their way in or threw themselves off the ledge and into the water.

“Hurry up (Y/N)!” Tom called as he waded through the water with Harrison and Jacob.

“No, wait!” Jacob yelled back. “Get my phone and take our picture!” (Y/N) turned around, grabbed Jacob’s iPhone, and slipped out of her shirt. She stood on the edge of the pool as the three guys gazed out over the Singapore skyline. She smiled as she took the photo and called back out to the guys.

“Got it!” At the sound of her voice the three turned around and Tom’s breath hitched in his throat. As soon as his eyes landed on her skin, his heart jumped and he was hooked. She was enticing; the curve of her hips slipped into the warm water, the way she pulled her arms up, keeping them from getting wet when she wadded in and the pool playfully lapped water against her breasts. 

“Shit,” Tom huffed as she wadded toward her friends.

“Thanks for joining us,” Jacob joked.

“We needed another person for chicken,” Harrison called out as soon as she reached them.

“Dibs on Haz!” Jacob called again.

“I guess that means you’re on me,” Tom snickered before disappearing under the water, slipping his head between her legs, and resurfacing. She balanced delicately on his strong shoulders and Tom quickly grabbed her thighs, steadying her on top of him. Her hands slipped across his head as she pushed his hair back. He couldn’t help the feeling within him as she played with his hair while they waited for their opponents.

“Hurry up,” (Y/N) shouted. “It’s getting chilly up here!” Harrison awkwardly put his leg up over Jacob’s shoulder and then Jacob sank further into the water so Haz could more simply sit on his shoulders. Almost immediately Jacob and Tom started to rush toward one another. As he moved, Tom’s grip on (Y/N)’s thighs became tighter and tighter as his hands moved further up her legs. She managed to wrap her legs under his arms and hook her feet on his back and his hands were getting dangerously close to the hem of her swimsuit, his thumbs starting to caress her upper thighs, just below her ass.

In that moment she hated that she had learned of some Schrodinger’s Cat like scenario regarding Tom’s feelings toward her, but the more she thought about the what being with Tom would be like, the more she wanted to entertain the thought of him still having these feelings for her. She wanted to be called darling and love, she wanted to have early morning walks with Tessa and wouldn’t mind being tested by Harry, Sam, and Paddy. The idea of dating Tom was starting to grow on her and she couldn’t help but think that everything that’s happened in the last few hours has been deliberately and meticulously planned to push them closer.

The more she thought about it, the more likely it was that Harrison didn’t absolutely have to show Jacob a video on his phone the second they got on the plane. Also, she knew better than to gullibly believe Jacob would want to be on Harrison’s team since she and Jacob had been the reigning champions since Harrison’s twentieth birthday party. Apparently, defending the tile of Chicken Fight Champions wasn’t as important to him as setting up Spider-Man and Bagel Bitch. 

Usually, Harrison was on bottom and Tom was on top so (Y/N) was always used to Tom’s weaknesses like the fact that, if she could get close enough, his sides were incredibly ticklish, or that if she leaned back far enough, he’d fall right over Harrison’s head. She didn’t know Harrison that well and Tom wasn’t used to having to be on bottom. Jacob easily swept Tom’s feet from out from under him and the pair went down.

Seeming to understand the reason they lost, Tom resurfaced and pulled (Y/N) close to him and whispered in her ear, “Harrison can’t bend his fingers back very far.” The sly smirk on Tom’s face caused her lips to curl toward the sky.

“Jacob has terrible balance in standing water–he’s used to the ocean and fighting waves,” she said in reply. Tom smiled again as his dark, cheerful eyes connected with hers until his head disappeared underwater as he swam beneath her, strangely overexcited to have her thighs on either side of his face. He started to lift her onto his shoulders once more, this time making sure to playfully grab her butt, hoping it would be a subtly hint at wanting to take their friendship to a different level.“Even if you go under, don’t let go of me,” she quickly added.

“Are you sure about this?” Tom asked.

“You trust me, right?” she questioned while tossing a playful smirk in his direction. Tom smiled so brightly hearing the words he said to her flow out of her mouth in her enchanting voice and charged toward Jacob and Harrison, confident in (Y/N)’s ability to get them a win as well as his own ability to win her over.

"Is 'fat' really the worst thing a human being can be? Is 'fat' worse than 'vindictive', 'jealous', 'shallow', 'vain', 'boring', or 'cruel? Not to me." "Frankly, I'd rather they didn't give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones rather than Pansy Parkinsons." - JK Rowling. I'm neither agreeing or disagreeing with you, I just wanted to point out that she doesn't do it intentionally.

See, this is the thing - even if it’s not intentional, it’s still there. I know I’ve stumbled across a few gross stereotypes in my own writing - I bet anyone who writes does, because they’re stuff that’s internalised and repeated by the media until we sort of end up believing them, or at least repeating them ourselves.

Take Pansy Parkinson. She’s ‘pug-faced’ in the books - yet another antagonist described as being ugly. Dudley is fat. Snape is ‘greasy-haired’ and has a ‘hooked nose’ and ‘sallow skin’. I’m sure there are a thousand other examples of antagonistic characters who are described with less-than-flattering physical features. Do the protagonists have these features? Not that we hear of. Hermione gets her ‘beautiful all along’ moment, Harry and Ron are described in ways that are awkward but endearing - messy hair, shabby clothes. 

It may not be intentional, but it’s still there, and while these stereotypes exist, we should be actively trying to combat them.

I don't know if this was ever pointed out before, but right before Zuko is going to be burned during that Agni Kai, his prostrating himself is a form of an extreme apology in Japan called Dogeza. It's as low as a person can get, and they're showing complete submission and reverence to whoever they're prostrating themselves to; it's only performed by someone who's REALLY screwed up. I don't know very much about Japan's culture, but I'm fairly certain that is what Zuko was doing in that scene.

You know, I don’r think anyone has pointed that out to me yet 

It appears pretty similar to Zuko’s bows:

Thanks for the know!
