I feel like we very often make it sound like ShikaNaru is one-sided by talking too much about Shikamaru loves Naruto and “Shikamaru is the only one who” this, “Shikamaru is the first and best” that, and “Shikamaru always see Naruto as Naruto and not as a Jinchuuriki NOR a hero”
but friendly reminder that wayyy back in the chuunin exams, while everybody was talking about Shikamaru’s IQ and stopping at “lol lazy bastard could try a bit” Naruto was the only one who talked with conviction about his loyalty and his bravery as a friend, a person and a shinobi.
I was really excited to go to bed early last night, in bed by 9:30. Of course, the last time I looked at the clock it was just after 11:30, and the rest of my night was an interrupted mess. If it wasn’t the husband snuffling (hay fever / head cold), it was the stop/start heavy rain. At 3:30am he gets up and I ask if everything’s ok - apparently he can’t sleep. I dunno, snuffly snoring is pretty uncommon when you’re awake…
So, I’m tired this morning.
And just now, a guy sat beside me on the train. Everyone is bundled up in coats and jackets since it’s cold and very rainy this morning. The train seats aren’t large; I’m sitting against the window. Everyone’s bulky coats mean that there is a good chance that you’ll overlap a little, plus it’s the start of the morning peak. He sits beside me too close, slightly pressing against me as if he expects me to move over or become smaller. I don’t. He presses harder, I brace myself and still don’t move. After a brief moment he gets up in a huff, paces slightly up the carriage before turning around and muttering that “everyone’s overweight”, and moves into the next carriage.
Do you ever think about the fact that Laurent thought himself to be so completely incapable of being loved that he literally constructed his entire personality around that fact, and then Damen basically rolled up one day and was like, ‘lol, nope,’ and fell in love with him and in doing so, changed Laurent’s whole perception of himself and made him realise he was worthy and capable of love.
Thinking about the next chapter and everything, I think the worst part of it is that Mutsuki went to :re for Touka. He has the picture, he knows where that person is, and he suspects that Kaneki might be there BECAUSE of Touka. Mutsuki doesn’t know that :re is more than just Touka’s coffee shop, Kaneki has other friends there, friends he knows since he became a ghoul. But Mutsuki might think he’s there because he has a crush on her. The fact that he arrived and Kaneki was there, just as he suspected… :re, the place where Touka lives… it’s gonna be a mess. Once Mutsuki sees Touka, he will feel tremendously jealous. I’m not sure if Kaneki was the one closing the shop, but I feel like Touka will come back like “hey, Kaneki, are you done? can we leave now?” and Mutsuki suddenly sees her appearing and calling him like that and hoooly fuck, I don’t trust Mutsuki’s reaction at all.
okay now we all know that something really bad happened back then if even doesn’t want to talk about it. if even asked sana don’t tell isak that they knew each other. it’s really sad that even has to hide something from the boy whom he loves the most, because it’s clear that he’s still scared of loosing him. yes they are so happy, they moved in but sadly when you have mental issues brain works differently. he thinks that he can loose isak if isak find out what happened in bakka and keeps secrets from him. yeah that fact that he keeps secrets doesn’t help because it could ruin everything too but even chose lesser of two evils. and now isak brought that thing with mikael once again and i’m so anxious when i think about how even deals with it right now. i’m sure he becomes more and more anxious and he’s afraid that truth can be revealed. and i’m really scared that it could bring another episode. because we all know that they all will meet up soon.
How would the band react to you seeing pictures of them when they were little?? :)
2D: 2D hates flipping through his old family photos because he used to look like a tool, but he finds yours to be incredibly cute and refuses to let you hide the embarrassing ones from him. He snags a cute one of you when you were little and tucks it away for him to always have, just in case.
Murdoc Niccals: Doesn’t know what it’s like to have fond childhood memories, but he can appreciate the fact you’re sharing some of your past with him. He looks through some of them and remembers about events that happened to him when he was that age (the look of concern on his face tells him it probably wasn’t normal).
Noodle: Noodle’s childhood is a bit of a sore spot and she feels jealous looking at your old photos because it reminds her that she didn’t really have a good one. She avoids talking about hers when she can but likes to breach the topics of what you used to do with your family, hobbies you had, etc.
Russel Hobbs: Russel enjoys you sharing your old memories and baby pictures with him, having a few he had taken from New York as a memento to show you. Some of the older ones show his friends who had died before he moved, but he quietly explains who they were and some memories they had had together.
I know that we’ve speculated a lot about Even having an episode was the thing that caused all the drama between him and the balloon squad back when he went to Elvebakken. But considering the way he acted in today’s clip I really doubt that it was “just” an episode. When he talked to Sana he seemed so anxious over the fact that Isak might have found out about Mikael. I mean Isak knows about him being bipolar and he doesn’t seem to have any problems whatsoever with it, so if this was something thats only associated with his disorder, I’m positive Even would’ve told Isak by now. This is something much much bigger. Something so big that he doesn’t even want his boyfriend, who he recently moved in with, to know.
Shits about to go down.
you know seeing this judgment towards even is really hurtful. not just because i love him so deeply, but because of people’s ignorance. “even didn’t tell anything to isak, he keeps secrets he’s so horrible he doesn’t deserve isak.” and even that fact that he has a mental illness doesn’t change their opinions. “so what he has a free pass for being a dick?”. no. but please choose words correctly. he hasn’t a free pass, but if you smart enough you could understand why he doesn’t want to tell the truth. he’s still scared of loosing isak, he hates himself (do you think he dosen’t?) for having a bipolar disorder. his condition already was a cause of something really bad and he doesn’t want to lose someone whom he loves so much. believe me he have never loved someone so much. how you can’t understand his fear? and all this hate makes me hate myself partly too. because i know how it feels to have a mental illness. i know how it feels when people left you because they don’t wanna bother with it. people literally have been saying these things to me in the past. so believe me once you had lost something/someone because of the way you are, you are become anxious as fuck. because you know it can happen in the future.
Do you think he also has this moment of realisation that his 13-year-old daughter, with her lines like “blood or coin, everyone will pay me their due” has already surpassed him?
It’s not an upsetting thought, it doesn’t hurt his feelings, in fact? He’s very proud of her, the same way he’s proud of her high running speed and agility and her rapidly improving fencing skills. Emily is a very talented kid. It’s just…a brutal reminder of her growing up and not being a little girl anymore, once she develops her own verbal style so elegantly and so effortlessly. She’s growing so fast, and he is growing old, and what if she doesn’t see him as her cool old man any longer?
Does she find his own poetry, well-hidden in his desk and now scattered around the room after the witches turned it all upside down? Who knows. Probably. It’s still kinda lame, but she’s deeply moved to see her quiet, reserved old man pouring his heart out on paper with obscure metaphors. Reminds her of all the times they sat together and just talked like the best friends in the world.
Poor dad didn’t seem to fully grasp that Emily uses drawing with a savage black crayon in poetry’s stead.
I’m too lazy to log into my art account so I’ll just post little Yoshi in here. I borrowed a VERY old trope I had back when I still had my custom species in the Invader Zim fandom (short story shot: still having the ability to sense despite being non-corporeal)
Yoshi was a soldier, however it’s hard to determine when he was alive.
He died from a katana wound to the heart when foolishly brawling with his friends inside a temple. Once his drunken friends realized something was wrong after taking Yoshis pained squirming as “good acting”, it has already been far too late. Due to the surroundings and sudden naure of his death, Yoshi has trouble remembering that he’s in fact deceased. The last thing he remembers as he passed was his friends laughing.
Yoshi seems to have little recollection of events that happened before in his life, but hearing fireworks or loud bangs can trigger flashbacks. Despite being a soldier, he never participated in any serious combat (thus explaining his poor swordsman skills)
Yoshi still retained his personality when he died. Using his ghostly state to pull pranks on people to make himself laugh, however the death warped his understanding of how far is “too far” and his pranks ended up with tragic consequences on multiple ocassions.
He has the ability to posess people and objects and can manipulate things around him (moving objects, controlling elements like electricity or water)
He’s not very fond of swords after one of them became the cause of his death and he’ll avoid getting near them, also disapproving of play-fighting that imitates sword fights.
He’s a really cheerful spirit, so bumping into people that are “downers” will strongly affect his mood. He’ll try his best to cheer the person up, often taking things a bit too far.
He doesn’t like explosions, so fireworks are something he avoids. It reminds him of bombs and gunshots, where both are war reminders.
Despite being a ghost, he’s easily scared and his little tricks can be used against him. He loves playing games and will not reject an offer to participate in play.
He lacks a physical body due to being a spirit, but the lack of realization about his death, made him retain “phantom” sensations. Phasing objects or touching will actually trigger a physical reaction from him, despite it being strictly psychological,
The sensation varies depending on what’s being phased through him. Water will make him feel cold (and would make him feel like cold fog), fire’s going to make him warm (and feel like warm steam)
Small objects like pebbles or feathers would actually be suspended wherever they’re left and he’d not be able to remove them on his own as he can’t phase through himself. He’d get quite upset if you placed something unpleasant inside him and he’d urge you to remove it.
He usually avoids being touched because any living matter passing through has its own energy field that clashes with his own, making it tickle.
