More modern!Ashi Reincarnation AU

Ashi allows the weirdo who claims to be from the past to stay in her Tokyo apartment after he saves her life (and because he’s a good cook). 
Jack is referring to the happier times before Ashi fade-dies in the wedding. With her long hair and Jack’s rebuilt home in the finale, I’d like to assume they had a few good times lmao.

You impatiently ran your fingers along the chain linked metal fences as you walked yet another lap around the prison yard. Your eyes perched on the woods far off in the distance. You heart was pounding with nervous energy as it always did when he gone. 

Daryl, Rick, and Glenn has gone on a supply run to a nearby farmhouse that looked promising. You would have begged Daryl to allow you to come along, but of course he would have said no. The only time he ever allowed you out of these walls was when it was absolutely necessary.

You knew he was trying to protect you, you knew that. But, you still didn’t think it was fair that you had to sit here and wait on pins and needles every time he went off on a run. He knew you worried. You kicked the ground, squared your hips toward the outside world, and crossed your arms, thinking back to the night before…

—–

You had been actually in a very good mood for someone stuck in an abandoned prison with killer zombies surrounding you at every moment of existence. You had helped Carol with dinner, you always loved making sure everyone was fed and happy. 

You smiled happily as you dished out the stew you and Carol had created to adults and children alike. You were so busy dishing everyone up a bowl that you didn’t even hear Daryl sneak up behind you and wrap his arms around you. His lips came up to your ear and you sigh, moving your head further to the side, granting him all the access he wanted. 

“You look so damn cute sitting here takin’ care of everyone, Y/N.” He left a short kiss behind your ear causing delightful shivers to explode on your skin.

Your eyes returned forward and you saw Glenn and Maggie smiling and waiting patiently, you dish them up quickly as Daryl allows your body to move forward only as far as you needed it to to pour them each a bowl, before wrapping you back tightly to his body. 

He played with his chin on your shoulder, locking and unlocking his jaw repeatedly, as you served the last few people in line.

You giggled as his chin scruff scratched and tickled you, you moved your hand to the side of his neck and finally paid full attention to him.

“Would you stop? That tickles!” You laugh feigning a complaint as your eyes danced and sparkled for him. 

He wrapped your body tighter to him and swayed you around in his grasp, looking mischievously into your eyes, “Never heard a complaint before. He growled lowly and winked at you.

JASPER IN DEADLAND IS SO GOOD. 

Okay summary time: It’s basically about this kid named Jasper [Who really likes diving and wears a kickass red sweater) has this best friend named, Agnes. They love each other, but Jasper thinks she deserves better. She confesses and Jasper unable to reincorporate for the reason mentioned above and doesn’t give her an answer. SO trying to get an answer, they say they’re gonna meet at this cliff (They’re hang out <3) but Jasper gets there a little late and Agnes tries diving off the cliff and fails….and also drowns. Oh no she’s dead. But Jasper, being the lovesick and selfless boy he is jumps into save her. Saying that he’d give his soul up too save her. And might also being dying too. And then BOOM we meet the ‘villain’ Mr. Lethe (Yes like that river in the Greek Mythos) whose basically argues with his boss (Psst it’s pluto/hades) about if this soul should be let in. He loses and let’s Jasper’s soul into ‘deadland’. Thus the title, after a dramatic opening sequence he makes it his mission to save Anges from the underworld and bring her back to life. 

Long story short: It’s a modern day Orpheus and Eurydice retelling (Kind of) as well as a crossover fanfic (musical) with various underwold myths. Some examples: 

  • Lethe is a River in the Greco-Roman Mythos (as mentioned above). It makes you forget things. 
  • Cerberus guards the front gate into deadland
  • OH Deadland is split up into ‘circles’ like how Dante’s inferno. 
  • The Chiron shows up too, the greek ferry man
  • Osiris shows up (though it’s brief) as a singer in a club in ‘city circle’ 
  • Said club is named Helheim (From Norse mythology) 
  • Speaking of Norse Myth! Loki and Hel show up as well for a quickie cameo as Lackies. 
  • The second gate is protected by Ammit, a demon from the edyptain mythos that eat hearts (She even has her own song) Sadly Anubis doesn’t get s shout out :( 
  • When he get too the most ‘hellish’ part of deadland it’s ruled over by a guy named ‘Little Lu’. A fallen angle aka Lucifer. 
  • Sisyphus gets a named drop as he is in the ‘hell’ part of deadland 
  • A little more less known Greek myth as well, the daughters of Danus are there too. As well as Brutus, that guy who stabbed Caesar a bunch of times.
  • Remember how I said this story was a retelling or Orpheus and Eurydice? The show knows this because Eurydice basically plays the part of a Obi-wan Kenobi in this and helps Jasper on his journey. IT’S  ALMOST LIKE SHE WANTS THEM TO HAVE A HAPPY ENDING BC SHE DIDN’T GET ONE :((((((((
  • Elysium is one of the last circles. 
  • Pluto or better known as Hades is the big boss of Dealand with his wifey Persephone. They’re lethe’s boss.  

BUT THOSE ARE JUST SOME REFERENCES THAT MAKE MY MYTH LOVING HEART SWELL!!! I’m sure they’re are more (Since I sadly never made it to a stage production). But the real meat is the songs, I’ll give some of my favorites. 

  • Jasper Goodbye  (The opening song) 
  • What is Life (Cerberus’s ‘solo’) 
  • The Killing (Japser’s Answer to Cerberus’s question) 
  • The Forgetting (Sometimes your just start speaking in Portuguese when a magical river washes away your memories)  
  • Living Dead (A bunch of Dead people love being dead: The song) 
  • Hungry for Your Heart (Remember when I said Ammit got a solo. This is that solo.) 
  • Stroke by Stroke (Uplifting water metaphor: The song) 
  • Beat and Broken Spirits (The most fun song about internal damnation sung by Satan) 
  • Awful People (Undead man/Physical embodiment sings about how awful the world is, obviously.) 
  • Elysium (Everything sucks back home, maybe we should stay dead?: The song) 
  • Lifesong (Eurydice’s solo! Basically Uplifting life metaphor: The song) 
  • The Trade / The Swim (HAPPY ENDINGS ALL AROUND! Hello Jasper Hello)

REALLY I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT JASPER IN DEADLAND AND I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD CHECK IT OUT. The whole album is on youtube and itunes. And you can find a lot of the workshops on there as well. 

Some just cool things: 

Really look up this musical. It’s worth listening too.

He had his own blaster out and fired a cluster of tight shots above her head. Jyn could only guess one of the rebels had been aiming the explosive her way. Cassian had shot one of Saw’s rebels to save her life.

-

“Tell that to the one who killed our men.”
Jyn looked to Cassian. In her mind’s eye, she saw him fire his blaster in the plaza, felt the grenade explode over her head. She remembered the cold, guiltless sensation that had passed over her then; shame found her now, gripped her heart, and she tore through it with anger.

Can we please talk about Hunk’s empathy?

Contrary to the fandom’s popular belief, Hunk isn’t actually all that empathic towards everyone. He clearly doesn’t empathize much with people he doesn’t know: he was willing to leave Shiro to the Garrison, he was willing to let Arus get blown up by Sendak, and he was incapable of grasping how freaking HUGE his responsibility was as a defender of the universe, simply because he couldn’t empathize with those under Zarkon’s rule.

Hunk’s empathy basically works like this: if he knows you, your life, and can see you as an individual with a life, he will empathize with you and try to help you. You can see this most prominently with Shay, whom he only casually cared about until their private talk, where she revealed that she had never seen the sky. Hunk now knows something about her life, and is able to connect with her on a personal level, which means he now wants to save her at all cost. 

This is also why he starts caring about fighting Zarkon: Shay’s lifestory is simply one of many stories, and there are literally millions like her throughout the universe. Hunk realizes this, and connects Shay’s story to the millions he wants to leave behind to go back to Earth, and realizes that no, he can’t do that. That’s when he starts to care: when Shay has given the people that Zarkon oppressed a face and a voice.

In short: Hunk is only able to empathize with you when he sees you as an individual, and Shay gave the millions under Zarkon a voice, causing Hunk to see them as individuals, now, too. And honestly? I love that so much.

Iain is like my best friend. He comes over a lot. And he really loves hanging out with Sylvia (5), they’re like best friends. Which is kind of cool actually. He like saves her artwork and all that. They’re like really buddies. I hang out with him the most socially.

Celaena Sardothien in ToG7

We keep saying Celaena Sardothien is gone. That she is dead and with Sam.
But even so, Celaena shows up time and time again.

When she talked with Arobynn
When she talked with Rolfe
When she “learned” about Arobynn’s death
Even a little bit when she fought the Valg in the Pits

So really, Celaena isn’t dead, she just is dormant.
And because of this, I don’t think it will be Aelin who Rowan finds when he goes to save her from Maeve. Instead, he will find Celaena.
Now, this distinction is key, because Celaena is the person who endured Endovier, who could survive the darkness and the whipping. She is the one who has endured the pain that Maeve will make her go through. Not Aelin.

Aelin became Celaena to save herself and her Kingdom and to survive. So I think, to save her kingdom as she has done before. And to survive, I think Aelin will become Celaena. I think that is who will emerge from the iron coffin and who we will meet when ToG7 comes.

HOMESTUCK CHARACTER APPRECIATION

He had multiple blog.Lil post to appreciate characters:

  • John was into computer coding even though he sucked at it, liked magic tricks, and other actors that were not Nic Cage. (As for his ‘true sexuality’, no idea what’s going on there. Hussie stated that Homestuck would reach a gay singularity, but John has canonically stated he is not gay. Idk.)
  • Rose was messy as Hell. She wrote wizard fanfiction. She knitted. She was not always rational.
  • Kanaya was not always prim and proper. She grew jealous of Vriska’s other relationships, and cut her off with no explanation, which did not help her any- considering she was her moirail, and was supposed to keep her in line. She thought Rose was a troll at first, when she only knew her as tentacleTherapist.
  • Roxy could hack and code, liked science, and could fluently read morse code.
  • Vriska was a pretty big history geek sometimes. She roleplayed as her ancestor, and tried to manipulate everybody into reenacting history. Her bad relationships were, at times, the fault of others.
  • Tavros raised a goddamn army, no mind control needed. Even though he killed Jade’s Grandpa, he also saved her life in doing so. He tried roleplaying with Nepeta. He was friends with Gamzee, but only had one conversation with him that implied Gamzee had feelings for him in the slightest.
  • Terezi and Nepeta were good friends, and roleplayed together. Nepeta was okay with Karkat not reciprocating. She had a healthy moiraillegiance, not an abusive one. She wasn’t some delicate flower, she hunted and killed animals to eat. She tried roleplaying with Vriska.
  • Equius never abused or controlled Nepeta. He did not want her FLARPing with Vriska because she lost an arm, Tavros was paralysed, and Aradia died. It isn’t surprising why he didn’t want her to FLARP with them.
  • Eridan has not once said ‘wweh’ or ‘nyeh’ in canon. He only hit on people who he genuinely thought were into him. The pressure for him to find a matesprit was probably incredibly high considering his blood caste, so his actions were slightly understandable in the romantic sense. He used to be on good terms with Karkat.
  • ‘Fuckass’ was not the only swear Karkat ever used, Jesus. He also liked coding, but sucked at it. He was on good terms with Eridan before the drama started, being able to seemingly effortlessly calm him down. He talked with him in a very casual manner.
  • Jake had horrible memories of Jane. She got mad at him for forgetting her birthday, she became a trickster and tried to force him to marry her, and yet he still ran in front of a sword to save her.
  • Dave, in canon, said ‘y’all’. He was an amateur photographer. He liked collecting preserved dead things. He had multiple blogs. He literally had an entire SBaHJ arc dedicated to nachos. He grew a hatred of the sound of metal due to the strifes with his brother. (I will defend this poor boy to my grave, fight me)

I’ll probably add more to this another time.

anonymous asked:

I get that the fandom has accepted Jeremy as a furry, but are we really gonna ignore that Brooke basically has her own fursona? Like she went as a Sexy Dog for Halloween. Seems suspicious to me -_-

except jeremy’s canonically a furry and brooke’s a harmless girl who wanted the boy she liked 2 give her attention and tried 2 be original w/ her costume

brooke’s the type of gal who unintentionally makes furry references w/o realizing it bc she doesn’t know what furries are like she sees a costume that looks furry-like and she’s like “lmao cute” and michael’s like “haha yeah get yiffed” and she’s like “haha what? :)” and hes like…….oh my god dude holy fshit brooke lohst doesnt know what a furry is

anonymous asked:

"Chat, are you... jealous of Adrien?!"

“Chat, are you… jealous of Adrien?!” Alya giggled.

“What!? No! That would be ridiculous!” Chat’s voice rose an octave.

“You know Marinette only has a crush on him because she has a hero complex,” Alya said smoothly. Chat’s eyes widened as he gave her a sidelong glance.

“She- she does?” Chat asked hesitantly.

“Uh huh! He saved her from a storm with an umbrella, if he hadn’t done that she wouldn’t even be remotely interested. I’m telling you save her once and she’ll be smitten,” Alya assured him.

“Who said I wanted her to be smitten with me?” Chat asked indignantly. Alya fixed him with a look.

“Please Chat, it’s written all over you’re face! You totally like-” Alya started only to be interrupted by Chat Noir.

“- am totally in love with her,” Chat whispered as he stared longingly towards the trap door on Marinette’s balcony.

“YOU WHAT!?!” Alya shrieked.


Wow there are a lot of these!!! But for now I must sleep. More to finish up tomorrow.

Imagine how different acotar would have been like if Feyre had seen Rhysand’s dreams as well.

Think about it: he sees her painting stuff, and she sees him UtM or maybe glimpses of his court of Dreams. And then when she gets over the Wall, she sees his dreams more clearly and when he sends an image of the night sky she starts to send things back, trying to lift his spirits. Perhaps a painting of hers. Perhaps that painting of the pool of starlight that Tamlin was so quick to dismiss.

And then she starts liking Tamlin but she can’t forget the man in her dreams. Can’t fully commit to Tamlin because there’s just something about this man she dreams about, who sacrificed so much for his court. And then Calanmai. She knows who he is, and when she turns around after he saves her they just kind of stare at each other, not knowing what to do. Because Rhys can’t scare her off, she’s seen Amarantha and knows why he would try to do so. She knows it’s a mask. So they both know that they can’t afford to really talk and are just happy to get a glimpse of this person they dreamt of.

Imagine later, when Tamlin sends Feyre away (she never said she loved him, and though she comes close, she can’t forget the man who everyone thinks is a monster, who just threatened them in the dining room. Who she knows wears a mask to protect) and she comes back not just for him, but for Rhys too. No one guesses why she’s really there and she doesn’t care. Except Rhys. He knows. He sees that she came back for him too.

Imagine her trials. Still horrible, but how much of a difference would it make if Feyre knew she truly had an ally?

Imagine acotar where Feyre sees Rhysand’s dreams just as he sees her’s. What a different story that would be.

13 Reasons Why controversy

Because the response to 13 Reasons Why has been so controversial, I’d just like to point out some things.

As explained in 13 Reasons Why: Beyond the Reasons, the suicide scene was shown BECAUSE they wanted it to be painful for the audience to watch, as well as the rape scenes. Not because they wanted to be gruesome or inconsiderate, but because it is REALITY for so many people in the world and a lot of people like to pretend these things don’t exist or shield themselves from the reality of it; they ignore it because they’ve never gone through it, so they don’t care so much. So then when they see these scenes, they will be made uncomfortable and see what people are really truly experiencing and that it is not something that should at all be sugarcoated or ignored. IT IS REAL.

Secondly, for those saying it’s disgusting for them to show these scenes, THERE ARE WARNINGS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE EPISODES THAT SHOW RAPE AND/OR SUICIDE TO NOT WATCH IF IT WILL AFFECT THE VIEWER IN ANY WAY. These warnings are given specifically so that if you are not comfortable watching or believe it would cause a trigger, you should not even watch. So the fact that people are bashing the show for showing these scenes in relation to them being a trigger, the warnings are already made very clear in the beginning. They did take this step to make sure it wouldn’t just pop up and be any sort of triggers. The producers knew very well to be wary of that.
The show also worked with a lot of psychiatrists, psychologists, and leading experts in teen-suicide prevention. Though this still may not be enough for you to think they did everything right, they again did have the warnings. They are very aware that it could cause triggers and put some people in danger, but THAT IS WHAT THE WARNINGS ARE FOR. DO NOT WATCH IF IT COULD DANGER YOU. VIEWER’S DISCRETION IS ALWAYS ADVISED.

THE SHOW WAS NOT CREATED FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES. IT IS TO SPREAD AWARENESS FOR ALL THE ISSUES (suicide, rape, bullying) AND POINT OUT HOW LITTLE THE SIGNS CAN BE AND HOW MUCH MORE CAREFUL AND HELPFUL EVERYONE IN THE WORLD NEEDS TO BE TO THE PEOPLE AROUND US. As also talked about in Beyond the Reasons, they want to promote teaching boys the proper ways to approach a girl and gain permission to become intimate with her, always getting the YES to teach boys respect for women. This is very important because as most people know, it has always been extremely hard for rape victims to get help because of the “what were you wearing” “were you flirting” “did you lead him on” “did you directly say no” arguments that are so wrongfully executed—instead, 13 Reasons Why knows that this is an issue, as somewhat shown in the scene with Mr. Porter as he questions Hannah. So in the after show, they speak about how parents need to be teaching their children more about consent and less about just protecting yourself, covering up, etc. They are aware that the real issue is with proper consent, and that is a very important message to get across.

Coming from someone who has battled depression and suicidal thoughts and attempts, I must also point out that EVERY SINGLE PERSON, EXPERIENCES, THOUGHTS, REACTIONS, ETC ARE DIFFERENT. What one person suffering depression thinks may be different than another. Hannah Baker’s story is very unique in many ways yet also extremely relatable in many ways to many, many people and girls around the world. JUST BECAUSE YOUR STORY MAY BE DIFFERENT DOES NOT MEAN HERS IS INCORRECT OR LESS/MORE THAN ANOTHER’S. There are a lot of people who can relate to feeling as though you are NOTHING and of no worth to the people around you, just a burden that only disappoints everyone and makes their lives worse. This is a very real state of being and depression and feeling of complete worthlessness that people can reach in their lives, especially some young teenage girls, like Hannah Baker, and even myself, that will lead to suicidal thoughts, attempts, or completely following through with, like Hannah. They believe the world and their loved ones would be better off without them. Again, as someone who has attempted suicide as a teenager and worked for years to fight depression and overcome it, I can say that while the suicide scene did make me uncomfortable and was extremely painful to watch, I was not offended. I knew of the warning at the beginning of the episode, read it, and continued to watch because EVERYONE HANDLES THESE THINGS DIFFERENTLY. I UNDERSTOOD the purpose of including the scene and making it so graphic and realistic. IT’S REALITY, THIS IS HAPPENING TO PEOPLE EVERYDAY AND IT SHOULD NOT BE SUGARCOATED OR SHIELDED FROM THE WORLD; it needs to be made more AWARE OF by those who like to turn a blind eye to it, but it is exposed WITH WARNING. So again, if some feel as though a scene like this would be a trigger, IT IS ADVISED YOU DO NOT WATCH. Everyone is affected differently and they did not just insert it with no consideration for the affect it could have on those battling the same wars as Hannah.

To say Clay was an easy solution and could have saved Hannah by loving her—no, he could not have saved her by just loving her, that is not what this story is even saying. Hannah does explain at the end of her last tape as she exits the school that some people cared, but she felt it was only mediocre, not enough for her to want to stay and feel NEEDED and truly LOVED. So no, they are not saying Clay could have kept her alive by simply loving her, or that love can save someone, it is much more complex than that. What they are saying is that people can care, but not showing how much they truly care can affect someone in the ways it affected Hannah. It was not just one boy’s love that could have saved her, but the love and care of many people, for them to show that they truly cared about her being alive and DID NOT see her as worthless, an object, just another person on earth. She needed to feel as though they NEEDED her to stay, that they genuinely cared about her as a person and that her life was truly worth something, because she did not feel it was. When Clay says he could have kept her alive if he wasn’t so afraid to tell her he loved her, he simply means he could have given her a sense of hope, a sense of belonging on the earth, that someone truly, whole-heartedly valued her life and her as a human being, not an object.

The actress who plays Jessica also explained that she reached out to a family member who is an actual rape survivor, and she stated that she was pleased that the show was “not shying away from the ugliness” of these scenes because viewers will see what these people really go through–again, another topic that is usually sugarcoated and instead needs to be addressed.

13 Reasons Why is a unique way of telling the story of a teenage girl who committed suicide, and the reasoning for bringing it to screen was MOSTLY to promote awareness and shine light on things that are not talked about enough that the youth suffers every single day, things adults see as “normal teenager struggles,” “small stuff,” “it only feels like the end of the world and really isn’t,” etc. This show is being spread more than even expected, and that is a very good thing for those who are in need of help and have parents or peers that once ignored their problems and will now tend to them.


**an issue cannot be tended to/made aware of/more properly prevented if it is just sugarcoated rather than slapped in people’s faces (those who don’t realize how severe it is) like this show does. it can really change things and leave an impact.

**if you are at risk for triggers and do not feel you are currently healthy enough to watch this show, please take care of yourself and do not watch. or, skip episodes 9, 12, and 13 and read up on them instead. these are the episodes that can be triggers for those at risk, if you weren’t yet aware.

**also feel free to stop by my inbox and talk to me if you need someone to talk to, or just would like to speak more on the subject.

Q&A Cristina, Kieran, Mark and the politics of trust

“clockwork-artifices said: Hello, Cassie. I<3 Cristina, so i wanted to ask about her. She’s been described as someone who’s been hurt and betrayed in the past (and recently), therefore she doesn’t really trust people that easily now, so with that in mind i couldn’t totally understand

He could have refused her Gruvi-bread….

Because just like he stopped the rain for her….

She healed him from the ghosts of his past.

His light…

He is grateful that she is always there.

“Oh, Lucille…”

The pain was so great that he went numb, which was more than he deserved. He had done this… to her, to them. To all of them. Still, he tried to save her from ripping him apart, because he must save her, and Edith, and the doctor. “No, no, stop, please. I can’t..” He trailed off. I can’t, the litany of his life. I can’t, and so she had been forced to. He had turned into this. — Crimson Peak (book)
