Tagged by @moondance-mp3 @yjayss @daehyuns-lip-ring @happy-daes and @dreamermoonchan to do the bias selfie tag? or the selfie tag? whatever it is it involves selfies and I’m involving B.A.P by choice so there we have it. 

no. 1 taken when I went out to watch a burlesque show (absolutely and 110% one of my favourite things to go see they are so funny) and got drunk on gin in a tent (that’s pretty much all gin in that glass)

no. 2 was when I did my makeup so that people would walk past me down the street and wonder if I had lost my mind (and the answer is, of course, yes I have)

It’s been forever so here are some shitty selfies 🤷

starlitspring  asked:

Hey there :) I just read your 'animals gone mad' meta and you made the point about Stiles being heavily associated with keys & I was wondering if you could develop on that more (I'm a sucker for character associations ;)? I know there's the whole key thing @ the beginning of 3B but I hadn't noticed anything beyond that. Probably because I haven't had the time to re-watch in a while (damn you exams :/). Also, I saw your Norwegian National Day selfie and you have a really pretty smile :)

Hey, okay *deep breath* … since you ask so nicely :) (and thanks for the compliment on my smile, buttering me up does help *wink*) Also, marvxll I’m sorry for the late reply, the season 5 trailer appeared suddenly and derailed my attention for a bit :) 

Firstly, athenadark has already written a meta on Stiles and keys as well, and you can read it here. She touches upon pretty much the same stuff I mentioned in my 3x01 rewatch post (and to be honest, I probably got the idea from her in the first place) about the nemeton being a door (or prison) that holds the evil at bay, and that stiles seem to be a key that can either serve as a gatekeeper, making sure it stays away or can unlock it. 3b was all about “void” trying to coax Stiles to open the door and let the “water” in. All the way back in 2x11 Morrell cautioned Stiles against this, “to hold on and keep walking through hell”, “to not let the water in”. 

Stiles is associated with doors, doorways, transitional spaces and keys pretty much from the the start of the series. Something’s in the water, like the sheriff said so jokingly in 3x01 and it does seem to be tied to the telluric currents, the nemeton and the lake. Water is also a symbol for transformation (running water) and death and damnation (still water) unless Stiles is present. Then it’s just damnation.

We have players associated with the nemeton, namely the druids, who all act weird around Stiles. First we have Deaton who seem cagey around him and who never include Stiles in his plans. He usually concoct them alone with Scott and probably encourage him not to share it with anyone. Deaton is just about the only authority figure that Scott does listen to, and I find it hard to believe that Scott would exclude Stiles  unless Deaton has whispered in his ear. Like Scott admits in season 4 - he sucks at making plans and that is what Stiles is for. Unless Deaton is involved. 

Deaton also “tests” Stiles in 2x08 with the mountain ash, a test he passed with flying colors, but Deaton has not made any attempts to teach or guide Stiles since. Stiles seems to be more closely linked to the Nemeton than say Scott, who can tap into the currents and gain power that way. Perhaps Deaton views Stiles as a potential stopper, someone with more control/power over the nemeton. The druids need to sacrifice to it to gain power, Scott can tap into the currents, but Stiles seem to have a more natural connection to it - the key basically.

Then we have Jennifer who looks to Stiles when the birds attack, who flinches away from him, who realize that he has Derek’s trust and deliberately uses their bond to make herself desirable to him, and get him under her thumb. She also takes Stiles’ dad and locks him out of the classroom when she does so. She basically seem to consider him a bigger threat than Scott. 

Lastly Morrell, another druid, but who seem to operate more deliberately within the rules of her kind and with the mantra of “maintain the balance” and is willing to “get her hands dirty” and interact with players on all sides if it suits her agenda. She too seems wary of Stiles, but unlike Deaton she’s willing to work with him, guide him and caution him. To what end remains to be seen. 

So back to Stiles, doors, doorways and keys… This will be long and pic heavy so hit the link for the rest.
