heck i only have two followers

STUFF I LOVED (EVEN IF IT MIGHT HAVE MADE ME CRY) IN SUPERGIRL 219 – a list i made myself

  • “those firsts that you talked about? i want to have them all with you. i never want to stop having firsts with you.”
    • okay yes also the i love yous, but damn that was a good line.
    • i don’t even have the words, i’m a pile of mush.
    • as creepy as it was that that guy was watching them, and manipulating the fuck out of maggie, he really did nail that maggie’s heart eyes can be seen from space.
    • alex wants to name a dog gertrude. okay girl, you almost died so you get a free pass.
    • J’ONN HAS THREE DAUGHTERS NOW, AND HE’S PRETTY HAPPY ABOUT THAT.
    • floriana was clearly sick the weeks they filmed this, and her sick little voice just made everything hurt.
    • I AM A PILE OF MUSH 😘
  • “i’m listening for her. i can’t hear anything. i can do all these incredible things but i can’t punch my way out of this or fly fast enough and turn back time. and i’m afraid that i’m going to lose the person that’s most important to me.”
    • this was, man. dreamy sigh. almost* perfect. when this show is good it’s just so very good, and this line reads cheesy on the page, but melissa nailed it to the wall like the 2x4 that it is. kara is at her best when she’s an observer of humanity. that’s always been true.*
    • “to us, kara.”
      • this, all on its own, was enough to draw out how single minded to the point of selfishness kara sometimes is, but how easily she can be pulled back from that. this entire scene was masterful and reminded me how much i love and miss kara and j’onn together.
  • “what?! no, get in here.”
    • ENDED SO GOOD, STARTED SO BAD.*
    • one day kara and maggie will realise that they’re so incredibly alike, and alex is going to be in big trouble.
      • kara punches first, and if that doesn’t work she uses her words. (she should probably at some point for real learn not to do that.) maggie uses her words, and if they don’t work then she busts people out of prison or sends her gf off to her possible death. (this is not actually a good thing either!) honestly.
  • “and just in time for dinner.”
    • ALEX CAN’T COOK.
    • kara danvers endorses pineapple on pizza because she understands what is good about this planet.
      • kara’s dinnertime cardigan: CONTENDER #1 FOR OUTFIT OF THE EPISODE.
    • NO ONE ASKED FOR YOUR OPINION, MON-EL.
    • that guy was clearly into teenage alex and probably still was, and yet they 100% resisted the temptation to make him a homophobe and honestly THANK YOU.
    • will gregg henry ever be anyone but russell fabray to me? i guess we’ll have to check in again in another five years.
    • who knows that kara danvers is supergirl? “the DEO.” oh, kara, honey.
      • (oh for there to have been a, “and maybe cat, but…?”)
    • IS IT TIME TO TALK ABOUT LENA NOW?
      • IT’S TIME TO TALK ABOUT LENA NOW.
      • THE ALIEN DETECTION DEVICE RETURNS! AND IT WORKS.
        • (i’m never letting this thing go. i demand explanations. i must be furnished with enough informations to be able to make an actual call on where lena luthor stands on what constitutes the fundamental rights of an individual.)
      • that was a date lena and rhea went on. they can talk about mothers and children all they want, that was a date. a very gay date.
      • (RIP LENA WENT TO PARIS FOR SCHOOL. THE PRICE OF THAT DREAM IS LENA WENT TO SCHOOL JUST A CHARLES RIVER AWAY FROM THE HOME OF THE RED SOX. I’M PRETTY OKAY WITH THAT 😍)
      • lena knew rhea was an alien after a single slip that would not be out of place amongst lesbians over the age of 40. either lena is a terrible baby gay or she knows kara is supergirl. there are no other options here, THEY MUST CHOOSE ONE.
      • i’m 500% spoiled for where this plot is going, and after this episode I REMAIN EXCITED.
      • kara and lena call each other on the telephone to talk to each other with words from their mouths. according to the laws of communication between peers under the age of 30, they’re married now. marrieds who go on brunch dates that sometimes involve kale and sometimes do not.
  • *with a few season-long tweaks this episode could have been perfect.
    • because up to the water’s edge (PUN INTENDED) it was. at the very least it was the best episode this season, and it was the rest of the season that let it down.
    • it could have (should have) been the culmination of kara losing her job, losing her sister, losing herself in being the public perception of supergirl. their misstep was not laying the groundwork and expecting two key pieces of backstory to simply be accepted.
      • the supergirl defence? okay???
      • maggie not being 100% team supergirl? okay????????
    • if only they had used kara’s period of funemployment to actually have kara leaning into a life of only being supergirl, instead of setting that up and then never following through. if only they’d actually ever shown her alienating herself from the people she protects, because tbh this whole supergirl defence thing sounds like it should have been a multi-episode arc all on its own, and one that i really would enjoy the heck out of. if only for one second before this episode they had shown maggie to have any kind of disagreement with kara’s superheroing. (context didn’t make this disagreement any more tolerable to me. in fact the concocted backstory made it worse because they had the chance to show it and then never did. so instead, much like it did to kara, maggie blurting this shit out seemed to come out of nowhere, and just made it seem like she was pissed off that she didn’t get to save the day. maggie sawyer’s one true characteristic is being a communicator. that is literally her whole thing this episode again. that shit is her jam. but it’s also kara’s. supergirl talks people down in the end far more than she punches their lights out. kara is a reporter. kara is a person who uses her words, just like maggie. not laying the groundwork here did both maggie and kara a huge disservice.) if only kara hadn’t been absent from so much of the plot all season that these threads were there to pull together ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    • (this could honestly have been a season finale. but that would have made me actually worry for alex’s safety and tbh i’m very glad not to have had to live through that. #LESBIANLIVES.)
  • i could have gone my whole life without watching alex slice her own arm open to pull that tracker out. alas, i will not get to live that life anymore.

Kt tape is made to help muscle pain and cramps and such, so on that level it may be safe. I use it while climbing occasionally, helps a lot. Heck it may even relieve some discomfort of binding. Beyond that, I do not know how it would affect the body when compressing a whole part down. Typically people use only a strip or two, not like bandages wrapped around, so it may have to get creative to bind with it effectively. Hope I could help any way at all, coming from a user of it

Thanks follower!

anonymous asked:

Who's Ben Skywalker? And Maura Skywalker?

WHO ARE BEN AND MARA SKYWALKER

WELL

actually I’m acting all shocked that you don’t know but tbh I haven’t even read all of Hand of Thrawn so I’m trash just ignore me.

But anyway I’d written you a whole full length thing and titled it The Tale of Luke and Mara and basically told you literally everything I knew about everything and it was pages long (I’m great I know) but then tumblr crashed five seconds before I published the ask, so I figured this time I’d sensor myself (or try to, at least) for practicality’s sake, you know. 

Anyway, I’ll try to be brief.

Mara Jade was taken from her parents at a very young age by Emperor Palpatine and trained in the Dark Side as his sorta-apprentice cum personal assassin, and by her mid teens was affectionately known as the Emperor’s Hand, extending to wherever the emperor wanted to do his bidding and screw people over. Like this girl was a honed assassin, man. She slayed ‘em, literally. She was/is also really Force-sensitive, and was taught how to use this to her advantage. 

Anyway, Mara’d been assigned to kill off Luke (unbeknownst to Vader, of course, as Sidious is slime and in true Sidious fashion was like “my trash apprentice will try to overthrow me with his son and this just won’t do so better get rid of the son”), and she was in Jabba’s palace disguised as a dancing girl when Luke and co staged their fiasco of a rescue attempt, which to Mara’s surprise they actually pulled off but that’s not the point. Except, a wrench was thrown into Mara’s plans when Jabba refused to take the dancing girls with him on the barge, and for fear of blowing her cover, all she could do was make herself scarce as the heroes were taken “to their deaths”.  

And then, of course, on her way back to rendezvous with the fleet, the Emperor dies. And she feels it. 

It’s kinda sucky.

But in one fell swoop, her whole world, everything that she knew and was loyal to and loved, imploded.

And who, exactly, did the galaxy raise up as the Emperor’s defeater?

Well, poor Luke had no idea that somewhere in the galaxy, Mara was slowly realizing with horror that her life had basically ended and that Luke was to blame, meticulously plotting his painful demise, and the previous command of the emperor’s - “YOU WILL KILL LUKE SKYWALKER” - which we later find out was actually forcefully imprinted into her consciousness, was reinforced by Mara’s own scathing hatred and blame.

Roughly five years later, Mara’s working in the employ of the head of a smuggling gang, Talon Karrde, who’s actually a real bro but anyway I won’t digress, and she’s basically his second in command. Through a series of events that involve Admiral Thrawn the blue skinned art enthusiast Sherlock Holmes in space and his right hand man Captain Paelleon making a deal with a crazy as all heck Dark Jedi named Joruus C’baoth to try to bring back to life the Galactic Empire and basically destroy the New Republic, *takes deep breath*, Mara and Karrde find Luke stuck in the middle of nowhere with a cracked hyperdrive and take him in as their sort-of-prisoner. Well, Mara wants him to be a prisoner, but Karrde insists on treating him as a guest, (as I said, Karrde’s a bro), so she resigns herself to glaring venomously at him only. 

Luke, in true, polite, pleasant Luke fashion, is like “bro, what did I do to piss you off so much, pls tell me so I can apologize” and Mara’s like “stick it up your ass” so Luke’s like “well okay” and spends the rest of the evening frowning up at the ceiling in confusion.

Anyway, Karrde and friends retreat to their hideout on this planet called Myrkyr and then the Imps contact them and ask about the whereabouts of Luke so Karrde lies through his teeth, and meanwhile, Luke escapes and steels one of their parked skiprays, taking to the sky. Mara’s obviously like “SON OF A -” and grabs her blaster and runs after him.

[Spoilers for Thrawn under the cut if you really care]

whats your deal with brutasha

Oh, anon, I don’t think I have enough time or energy to talk about that terrible mistake in depth, but I’ll do my best. If you ship it, you might not want to read this.

Also, I really need to clarify that this isn’t a ship war thing. I don’t participate in that, and I never will. I’m just going to try to give my honest reading, my ship preferences notwithstanding.

First off, I feel that I should say Natasha’s character was pretty… well… not great in AOU.  To say the least. That, I think, contributed partly to my dislike of this ship. Which is actually a great segue into the biggest flaw of their subplot.

There was 0% setup for Bruce and Natasha to be in a romantic relationship. Despite what Joss seemed to see in that one scene Nat and Bruce shared in the Avengers, I don’t think many folks in the audience was seeing what he did. Scarlett even said herself that she thought that she was just a girl on a mission. Neither actor was playing that scene with romantic tension, and it came across that way because they are both talented actors. That scene established Nat and Bruce’s dynamic in Avengers–Bruce was a variable that Nat couldn’t control; Natasha is all about controlling what she can. That’s a deep part of her character. Their next interaction was setting up Natasha’s weakness, highlighting her position as a simple spy/assassin, not quite on the same level as these gods and superpowered people. She is terrified of the Hulk because he is something she cannot control. She cannot manipulate or fight her way out.

The Avengers was very effective in setting up that dynamic, and it was a fascinating one–the man who is terrified of hurting people, of losing control, and a woman who shares that same quality, but they were intrinsically opposed in their situations. One is physically invulnerable, the other is not.

If their relationship had been built off of that similarity, of their desire to do good despite what they’ve done, perhaps things would’ve been better.

Instead, it was built off of a very tired trope of the desire for the “white picket fence.” Aside from the fact that this is a very suspect desire for both of these characters, I’m breaking down the relationship and not the characters. The way that their relationship builds towards that white picket fence desire was not at all ideal. Their desire to somehow run away together did not ring true for either character, particularly Natasha.

One of my biggest issues with this pairing is that the writing does not rely on natural chemistry flowing through organic interactions. It relies on very forced interactions, as well as other characters in the film constantly reassuring the audience that the relationship works. One of the first things we have is the lullaby scene, which, as I established above, did not ring true in the least to the dynamic that was set forth in the Avengers. This is followed up by the unbelievably uncomfortable bar scene where it’s clear Scarlett is literally giving everything she’s got to appear interested and to force some sort of romantic/sexual chemistry between them. And god bless her and Mark, but they do not have any sort of sexual tension between them. Then we get Steve assuring Bruce as well as the audience that Natasha is definitely interested because she was “flirting for real.” The telling versus showing is extended at Clint’s farm where Laura points out their relationship to an oblivious Clint.

The most practical reason I dislike this pairing is because of the overstuffed nature of AOU, and the simple lack of time to establish a pairing that was completely out of left field. Regardless of what some people may have interpreted from the first Avengers, the simple fact of the matter is that a good portion of the audience came away thinking that Clint and Natasha were going to be a canon romantic pairing. Then along came The Winter Soldier, and many others thought that Steve and Natasha were going to become a canon romantic pairing. (Hell, some folks even shipped Nat with Tony after Iron Man 2.) My point is this: if Joss and/or the execs were so desperate for a romantic subplot in this film, then for the love of god make it a pairing that already has groundwork set. If you follow me, you’ll know I ship the heck out of Clintasha. The initial groundwork was laid in the first Avengers, and the interest was only heightened when Natasha wore the arrow necklace in The Winter Soldier. It wouldn’t have been that hard to build off of what had come before simply to reduce the amount of legwork that had to be done in Age of Ultron. Considering the incredibly dense nature of the film–the introduction of the Maximoff twins (two incredibly important members of the Avengers), the setup of Ultron as the villain (the Avengers had the advantage of having already introduced Loki into the MCU), the necessary setup for Infinity War, the introduction of Wakanda, interactions between the already existing Avengers which fans have been waiting for since 2012, etc.–it could’ve done entirely without a romantic subplot to no ill effect.

And finally, it’s a huge disrespect to Betty Ross. I have no problem with characters moving on and finding someone else that they may be better suited to. But the fact of the matter is this: Betty Ross has been continually left out of Marvel films (she hasn’t been mentioned even once), despite her very, very pivotal role in one of its first installments. To put Bruce in another relationship without acknowledging his past with Betty is not only insulting, but downright sloppy. It’s not even a matter of forgetting her existence now, especially when Bruce is in another relationship, it seems to be more of a willful, explicit exclusion. This is not simply my angry Betty Ross fan coming out–this is a serious issue of female erasure in Marvel films as well as in fandom. 

There’s further things I could say, but this hits my main issues. Turns out I had plenty of time and energy to think about this tonight.

My Biggest Thought on Shermy

You know what really gets me “???” about Shermy?

The fact that in the principal’s office (before we know Shermy exists), the principal stares at the parents of Stanford Pines and declares

“Now Mr. Pines, I’m going to speak very frankly with you, if I may.”

“’Very frankly’ is the only way I speak.”

“You have two sons: one is incredibly gifted, the other is named Stanley.”

The principal, speaking FRANKLY to Mr. Pines, mentions TWO SONS. Not three; TWO. At this point and time, Shermy has definitely been born into this world, we see him crying the next evening and mom sure wasn’t pregnant in that Principal’s office. The Principal probably knew of this child; it’s hard to miss it when parents of the kids that have been attending the school for 4 years suddenly has a new bun in the oven. THEY WOULD KNOW.

SO WHAT THE HECK IS SHERMY?

Option 1: Shermy is actually a GIRL.

Problem: Shermy has no female equivalent. I checked. What the heck.

Option 2: Shermy is an older brother, not the baby.

Problem: TWO SONS. TWOOO SONS. STANFORD AND STANLEY.

Option 3: Shermy is adopted, or is not their child and they are raising someone else’s baby in the family.

Problem: Why? Why would Shermy be adopted? If he was adopted, did Filbrick not see him as “his son”? If the baby is someone else’s child, like an older brother or sister, then why… why would Stanford be SURPRISED about a niece or nephew when he grew up in the same house as that kid? Did he not know it was some special kid out of wedlock? Ford is a lot smarter than that I would think. It’s also definitely not Stanley’s illegitimate child because Stanford would KNOW Stanley was lying right off the bat. It doesn’t make sense.

Sorry I guess out of everything I saw, it seemed SO important that the principal would say “VERY FRANKLY” (aka frank being another word for TRUTHFUL, and HONEST) and follow it up with the FACT that Filbrick had only two sons. I just can’t wrap my head arund it.

WHO OR WHAT THE HECK IS SHERMY???

You know, I just kinda realised that after “The Answer”, Pearl’s reaction to finding out that Rose kept Lion a secret from her is way more understandable.

I mean, not only was she Rose’s most trusted servant AND her fellow rebel and maybe-girlfriend for millennia, but for an unknown length of time before Garnet showed up, the two of them were all they had. Heck, even when Garnet arrived, I imagine that Ruby and Sapphire were probably rather preoccupied with figuring their relationship out, so Pearl still didn’t have to share too much. I don’t think they were necessarily expecting to gain followers, either, so most likely Pearl thought it’d be just the two of them forever.

anonymous asked:

Have you read The Hobbit? And if so, did you enjoy the movies or the book better? I'm torn between the two.

Yep, I’ve read the books! I honestly did not mind (at all) the changes/additions that Peter Jackson made to The Hobbit Trilogy. It always surprises me when people throw a tantrum about the so called “deviations” from the book when the material they added into The Hobbit Trilogy was from the Appendices! Which Tolkien himself wanted us all to know in order to have a complete experience. 

If PJ had made The Hobbit following the book EXACTLY, it would have NOT been as entertaining as we know it now. Heck, Thorin & Balin were really only the 2 dwarves who had dialogue in the book. You barely hear about the rest of the company. I think that PJ excelled at making the audience truly care and love the characters (see: Bofur). 

I think that it’s just the way that filmmakers will continue to approach novel recreations. It would be lazy (and a serious cop out) if directors stuck word for word to the original source work. Really, there would be no point in paying $10+ if what you saw on screen is exactly what you read in the book. I’m not saying that production companies should completely veer off course from the text because there is such a thing as respecting the source text but a director and his team should be able to give it their own flair. 

Obviously I wish PJ had done some things a little differently (More Beorn, expanding Thorin/Fili/Kili’s relationship through DIALOGUE etc) but I was still 100% happy about the final product. Peter Jackson and company put a lot of effort, time, and money to bring Middle-earth on screen and I will be forever grateful to him!

Sorry if this turned into a rant! Guess I was pretty passionate about this topic, huh? Thanks for the ask!

xxsound-and-silencexx  asked:

Oh! A courfeyrac/grantaire friendship thing!

  1. They are the textbook definition of “bad influence”. The tricky thing is that both of them are a bad influence for each other and feed off each other’s terrible ideas, given that Courfeyrac’s general approach to things can be summarized as “do it for the vine” and Grantaire’s as “lol idek man why not i guess”.  Their nights out are wild and they come back with such madcap stories that at this point no one can tell which are straight up lies, which are exaggerations, and which are things that have actually happened.  Most of the times you would never guess which is which –  for example, the rather mundane one about Courf and Grantaire’s midnight adventure to find frozen yoghurt never actually happened because both had gotten spooked by a “scary noise” (they may or may not have had a horror movie marathon the night previous) before they had hardly started and ended up going back to Courf’s to watch romcoms with all the lights on, according to Marius who had been forced to join them.  On the other hand the one about Grantaire scaling the side of a two-story liquidation store to dance next to the wiggly, blow-up man was absolutely true and can be proved by the recording Courfeyrac took.
  2. Courfeyrac and Grantaire both speak Spanish, Courfeyrac because of his family and he grew up around English and Spanish, and Grantaire because “eh, I had a really boring summer, it was something to waste my time on”. As the only two besides for Marius that speak Spanish they absolutely use it to have secret conversations – or really just to frustrate the heck out of everyone else by speaking gibberish and convincing them that they’re having Important and Serious Discussions when in actuality they’re discussing whether cats might actually robotic scouting droids and whether or not they’re purring is just a cooling fan.
  3. They follow each other on basically every social media platform they can get their hands on.  Their facebook profiles are mostly spent posting pictures and status updates that make them sound like overly aggressive, minivan-driving, manager-calling soccer moms. The patronizing comments Grantaire leaves on all of Enjolras social justice related updates (speckled with one too many “sweetie :-)”) has Enjolras perpetually livid.  Courfeyrac has an entire album labelled “My Son” which just consists of increasingly ridiculous pictures of Enjolras with proud little comments accompanying them – “sweetpea’s having trouble playing nicely with the other kids” below one of a sulking Enjolras with a black eye and split lip, “my baby receiving his very first bail” below one of a sullen, handcuffed Enjolras (with another black eye), “school is hard, keep going tiger!!! :-) :-)” below one of Enjolras face-planted in a textbook during exams.  Grantaire and Courfeyrac have a joint Twitter account just to document ABC meetings like a wild life channel.  They have Instagram fights over who can post the best hipster pictures.  They use filters to the point that the original picture can hardly even be seen.  If you follow one of them on Tumblr you might as well follow both, especially considering how many conversations they have via reblogs and gifs (to the point where they will talk in gifs irl and drive everyone else up the wall).  Their Snapchats are things of legends.  Don’t ask about the Vines.  
  4. Okay, but besides for that imagine how they’d be as emotional support for each other. Courf sticking with Grantaire during a depressive episode.  Please… please just imagine Courfeyrac, human embodiment of sunshine, coming into Grantaire’s apartment with the spare key he was given and pulling open blinds to let real light in, tidying up, fluffing up the couch with pillows and blankets, and then going to crawl into bed with Grantaire until he can coax him into getting up at least long enough to move to the couch.  Because any sort of upward movement is progress, and sometimes that means convincing Grantaire to go have a shower and usually means that, once he’s sitting up, he’ll eat what he’s given and not complain too much about being kept away from alcohol.  Courf would just curl up with Grantaire and casually have his phone out and be browsing pictures that just happen to show all the fun things they had all been doing as friends – pictures that remind Grantaire that he is loved, no matter what his brain is saying right now. And he would totally send out an SOS text to certain people so that other Amis would casually drop by and spend a bit of time with them, or bring food, or just generally break into Grantaire’s little bubble of isolation until he can start to pull himself up again.
  5. And it would go the other way too.  Because Courfeyrac is supposed to be the heart of the group, their balancing centre.  But he’s also human and sometimes he just gets overwhelmed, or upset, or stressed but he feels guilty about letting it show because that’s just… not who he’s supposed to be.  And he knows that’s not really a good way to think about it, and he knows that he could talk to Enjolras and Combeferre about this but he also knows how much they over think everything.  So while he knows they’d never make him feel bad if he told them, say, how exhausted he can get when he has to be the cheerful helpful one during exam season when he’s stressed and tired too okay? He’s also afraid that they’d think that means they can’t let him ever do something nice for them ever during exams because they’re bullying him into it or something which just– no.  But Grantaire gets it, he gets how it’s a sometimes thing and that sometimes you can get overwhelmed and it doesn’t mean changing everything or rethinking everything, it just means sometimes a night of drinking is in order. (And Courfeyrac is one of the people who has the pleasure of knowing that when a friend is upset a night of drinking can either mean him taking them out to get plastered, or it can mean him creating giant, homemade milkshakes for them to slurp on his couch – whichever is called for.)  Plus Grantaire is a top-tier hugger – one of his hugs can make even the worst bad moods lighten, bring you back to earth, and probably cure cancer, Courf should really swing that idea by Joly at some point.

Yeah I mean in a lot of strips that people use as evidence for England there’s similar evidence for America there as well. We see America blushing over him multiple points, and there is also stuff like the fact that England is the only person we ever see him get legitimately and seriously touched over. Heck he cries happy tears because England gave him a gift. He also asked him for Valentine’s Chocolate so… 

There is of course Hetaween as well, where the whole twitter follower thing was revealed by Hima to ‘just be an excuse’ and he would have found a way to get England to do it anyway. The leadup of that, the paneling, the delays, etc. was certainly framed like a 'love confession’ imo.

And I think it’s important to note that USUK is featured in Buon San Valentino with two (imo) definitively romantic pairs (GerIta and AusHun). 

You could argue forward and backward whether it’s definitively romantic or not, but to be honest there’s more stuff there for USUK than there is for some pairings that are widely considered canon in other fandoms. 

My precious moment 2014

Life has been kind of tough, with what is going on at home.  But, every day, I have been living by a promise that I made to myself not long ago - to live life with no regrets.  To follow through, I have been trying as many things as I possibly can - often times things I have never done before.  This photo was taken on my recent trip to Costa Rica.  That is me - ziplining over the rainforest by the Arenal Volcano.   The exhilaration I felt can only be described as out of this world.  I can finally cross that off my to-do list.  And, I figure, “what the heck, life is too short!”

Our sincerest apologies! By going through the inbox this morning, your wonderful moment showed up. Together with some other ones, that definitly have been sent in time. How would we not share this amazing photo and your fantastic story?
