honestly i tried with the perspective thing idk if it worked out

Hey! Just read your Baker!Derek fic and... IT'S AMAZING! PLEASE, PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE could you give us more? I'm dying of curiosity with what will happen and I just loved Derek's interaction with the sheriff, haha. Anyway, thanks for writing bc it's already awesome!

since i actually got a few requests to finish it here’s a part two. you can find part 1 here and part 3 here

That night, out of nowhere, Derek decided to cook homemade lasagna. Unfortunately, he didn’t have time to make his own noodles because things at the bakery took longer than he wanted, but store bought is fine. He finds it comforting to go through the methods of cooking this dish. Stirring together the ricotta and mozzarella. Making homemade sauce and chopping up garlic to go into it. Then he focuses on lining the pan with noodles and then layering the ingredients together. It really quiets his mind and prevents him from freaking about Stiles.

Of course, as soon as it’s in the oven and Derek is done cleaning up, all he has is time to freak the fuck out. He is kind of pretty sure he has a thing for Stiles, and Stiles might have a thing for him, which is even scarier. But it’s too soon to tell, Derek is sure of it. And really, they just barely met, so why is he freaking out?

Probably because it’s been so long since he has ever dated. He hasn’t had time lately, so it’s kind of been on the back burner, but now Stiles is right there and well…he doesn’t want to say no to this.

I've been wanting something like this for a while... but... What if, instead of Phantom ending up in the Human World and befriending Danny, Danny ends up in the Ghost Zone and befriends Phantom? *coughs* Not a very good idea, I know, but I just want to see it and I don't know if I can write it myself, since there's been some family issues lately :(

Dear Mom and Dad

The good news is I turned on the portal! The bad news is I’m trapped on the other side…

I’m not dead!  I think. I’m in the Ghost Zone you two were always talking about, and it’s brightcreepy strange hellish cold desolate indescribable, you’ll just have to see for yourself when you /get me out of here./ Nothing makes sense in here! There are these floating doors and rocks, and this green glowing stuff that’s everywhere, and the ghosts

I take back everything I said about not believing in ghosts. You were right about everything. They exist and they’re rude, thoughtless, scary complete assholes who only think about themselves. I’ve just been cut off from home and I don’t know if I’ll ever see you guys again and all he can think about is

Maybe I should start at the beginning.

The Sky post y'all been waiting for

Ladies and gentlemen, enemies of the sun this is the long promised Sky post y'all have been waiting for I’m sorry I can’t use images since my laptop won’t work and I have to do this on mobile and now without further redo let’s start

WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS WINX CLUB SPOILERS

Season 1:
We are actually introduced to him as Brandon because of an unnecessary role switch. I don’t even know why they thought this was a good idea since anyone who would’ve wanted to harm Sky and did proper research would know immediately who the real Sky is. That’s not that much of a problem however starting to “date” someone while still being engaged is. He wouldn’t even have to out himself as prince who just would’ve had to tell Bloom: Sorry I have a fiancée or to break things up with Diaspro. TBH this whole love triangle that has been going on since then is his fault he shouldn’t have just started “dating” Boom. And then everyone starts acting like everything is Diaspro’s fault tbh it was neither Bloom’s or hers it was Sky’s. And then he tried to solve things with Bloom not his actual fiancée no the girl he cheated on her with I doubt he even talked to Diaspro what even should he say: Ehm sorry I cheated on but I didn’t bother to break up with you before I started seeing someone else? Other than that he is pretty tolerable this season.

Season 2:
OH BOI that’s where the major drama begins. He starts out just fine but the second Avalon gets introduced “sigh” I still can’t believe to this day that he thought it was a good idea to spy on his girlfriend in a party where he is not invited with the excuse of making sure she’s okay (or what was it were we even given an excuse?) anyways and then he sees her talking to HER FREAKIN TEACHER and he gets jealous immediately. Like dude you were spying on your girlfriend and saw her talking to her teacher WHILE THEY WERE AT SCHOOL it’s not like they were together in the city or something no they were RIGHT THERE at school and the party was FOR THAT EXACT TEACHER and your first thought is that she might like him then idk if it’s her problem or yours TBH . Then that teacher promises her to help her find out about her past and you should be excited for her but no you’re being a jealous asshole. And then at red fountain he “dies” and then gets resurrected with Bloom’s healing powers but still believes that she likes the teacher more and who would blame her it seems like the teacher treats her better than her actual boyfriend does. And then he still manages to help her get healed from Darkar spell like Bloom if I was you I would’ve blown him away because honestly speaking Bloom deserves better.

Season 3:
Oh beloved season 3 in this season he’s kinda okay I guess except the part they had an off-scream fight in and we never knew what happened there and the part where he is under Valtor’s curse and tries to get rid of everyone and idk if he apologized for that it’s actually not that much his fault except it’s pretty stupid to trust Diaspro at that point. I don’t recall anything else if you do you can add it.

Season 4:
Now this season is weird because other than a few things I didn’t seem to have much impact on anything. Anyways this season was incredibly frustrating to watch from the romance perspective (well relatively anyways) because we had various love triangles that were what the children call incredibly stupid and cringeworthy. Like It didn’t really have to be and it didn’t add to anything in the season except maybe that one filler episode with Mitzy. And what role does Sky play in all of this? As always the jealous asshole. (I know it was not only him but still) dude just because some dudes were helping your girlfriend with painting the god dam walls while you weren’t there doesn’t mean they’re cheating and you have to behave like jealous children when someone plays with their fave toy on the playground. Like dude Andy and Bloom are childhood best friends of course they’re close like what even do you expect and instead of talking you just walk away like what is? What are we? You have a mouth and y'all can talk instead of this stupid miscommunication. Also think about from who the “Anonymous” message was because if you consider it i don’t thing “girl that hates bloom since they were children and wants to date Brandon although she knows he has a gf” isn’t exactly what you would call a reliable source. Then he is normal I guess for the rest of the season. Ah I wish he would fall of somewhere I just hate him.

Season 5:
Be careful what you wish for because yes he fell but he DIDN’T FREAKIN DIE. No he lost his memory and didn’t want it back because…? Like dude I get it you lost the jewelry but that doesn’t mean that you and Bloom will never live happily ever after like come on how superstitious are you to think that the only reason you and your gf won’t have a happy life because of that piece of jewelry you won’t have a a good life with Bloom because you have hundreds of other problems in your god dam relationship. (Note: this is the part in season 5 where I gave up the first time I was watching it) And how could it not be Diaspro decides to show us again how much they wasted her potential. You’d think after season 3 she would be banned never to return to Eraklyon but noooooo how can king Erenidiot ever make a good and smart decision in his life he even appoints her as Sky’s royal advisor or something like that. Yes you read it right folks she got a position of power. What happened next will shock y'all. She became a controlling bitch who would even control his phone calls (and Bloom totally falls for it but that’s a story for another day) and then they have this meeting where they discuss if they should do something against Tritanus where he at first doesn’t even wanna join forces and suddenly when it still happens he decides he’s the perfect person to lead it
(Ah yes forgot to mention that he gets his memory back somewhere before Diaspro became his royal babysitter because Flora found the piece of Jewelry in Domino idk how it got there)
And the season ends there this was one of the more frustrating seasons too.

Season 6:
I wouldn’t say there was much Bloom x Sky drama here except where the part where Diaspro tried to kill Bloom but I think we’re used to that by now like we’re used to wake up every morning: incredibly annoying and hard to go through. Surprisingly enough that’s not the part where he angers me the most no he annoyed me because he has the mentality of some people on this website to hold something a person did while they were 10 against them for the rest of their lives. Like if I was 10 and playing in the forest and some random dudes attached me I would run away too and nobody would judge me since that’s and instinct and TBH the only logical thing to do unless you’re some anime protagonist. And I wouldn’t hold a grudge against someone who did it like come on Sky you could’ve ran for it too and it’s sadly not like any harm happens to you since you’re alive and well unfortunately.

Season 7:
If I’m being completely honest with y'all I’m still in denial this season ever happened and you know what else I can’t believe ? The fact that this season featured a Bloom x Sky “love triangle” where the third person was a talking unicorn ( I know it’s one episode but still) Come on dude if after all these years of being together you still have to fight for Bloom’s heart WITH A UNICORN then dude something is seriously wrong and it’s not Blooms fault. I’m not talking about this particular incident more or else I will go on a long long rant.

Conclusion (I guess):
In general you can say I don’t really like Sky and think he’s one of the worst character'a ever to exist in the Winx universe and who can blame me? Also if you go ahead and call Bloom a Mary Sue I except you to call out Sky too who apparently is the best in his class even while losing his memory. And I think it’s safe to say that Bloom and Sky are one of the worst couples in this show.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I didn’t include the movies since it’s been a while since I watched them


Here you have it folks the long Sky post y'all been waiting for thank you for sticking around to the end I tried to keep it brief and I’m curious to here your thoughts on the matter

Outline for an essay I don’t have the energy to write or sufficiently research right now (all highly speculative!):

Thesis: Colonizing Mars is a bad idea, with very little to gain (except the aesthetic, which for some people–including me–is quite compelling). It absolutely shouldn’t be done right now, and certainly not by Elon Musk.

I. Economic considerations:

A. It’s expensive, of course; but beyond that there is no economic incentive to put a permanent human settlement on Mars. Mars has no resources which can’t be found on Earth, and very many that can’t (including many that would have to be imported, like oxygen).

B. Self-sufficiency would be extremely difficult. Lack of oxygen; lack of Earthlike soil in which to grow plants; lack of a microbiome to support a ground-up ecology; minor equipment failures could be catastrophic. Even if self-sufficiency was attained, a Mars colony would have trouble exporting anything of value to create wealth. Resources would have to be lifted out of Mars’ gravity, and sent all the way to Earth, and any imports back to Mars would be even more expensive (Earth’s gravity is greater, and air resistance is worse). Non primary/secondary sector industries would have to contend with the primitive state of the Martian economy, lag times between Mars/Earth communication, difficulty of establishing a high-bandwidth connection.

C. This doesn’t even get into power generation issues (dust storms and further distance from the sun inhbit solar a bit, but it’s the best option; no fossil fuels unless you ship them from Earth; nuclear fuel also a good choice, but IDK if you’d have to send that from Earth or you could expect to find it in situ; Mars’ atmosphere is very thin, so wind power probably wouldn’t work so well).

D. Any useful resource extraction will be badly outcompeted by much more profitable applications of the same engineering breakthroughs that would support Mars colonization, that is to say, asteroid mining, where there’s only one gravity well to contend with (Earth’s), and you can just schlepp the thing into orbit. Or lunar mining (gravity is still much weaker than Mars, no dust storms or air resistance to contend with).

E. This is more of a footnote really, but: any useful unique scientific breakthroughs to come out of getting a permanent population to mars are more likely to be engineering breakthroughs, with narrow applicability. Good science can be done easier, more safely, and cheaper with robots. Or even with putting humans in orbit of Mars and sending robots to the surface. This is the problem with all manned space exploration, especially as robotics and AI improves.

II. Environmental considerations

A. Mars is a nearly pristine environment about which we know comparatively little. Compare Antarctica; it would be better to preserve it as it is for all of humanity and for future generations, than to colonize it and risk damaging that environment (especially if it has native life!).

(Speaking of Antarctica: Antarctica is much closer, much more hospitable to humans, and we’ve been going there for centuries. Its current population is… a whopping 1 to 5000 depending on the season, roughly zero of which is permanent. This is a good proxy for the actual usefulness of Mars colonization, I feel.)

B. (This part could also go in economics section) No sustained environmental pressure on Earth makes Mars colonization attractive; Earth can support billions more, emigration to Mars would remain expensive and difficult, Mars unlikely to be able to support large human population for decades or centuries after colonization.

C. From a purely environmentalist standpoint: even if Mars doesn’t have life, it’s still an *environment*, if a dead one; it’s as unique and interesting in its own right as any other environment in the Solar System. Wantonly invading that environment is morally suspect (from certain perspectives), especially in the absence of a compelling utility to humanity (”it would be awesome” probably doesn’t count).

III. Political considerations

A. Recapitulating atomistic individualist politics in an environment which will demand high degrees of cooperation is dicey. (I may be very wrong about this, but) Musk’s flavor of intrepidity (is that a word?), while admirable, seems very much based on this outlook.

B. Under this worldview, colonization in an environment where profits are unlikely to be had, disagreement is likely to exist between competing people with highly articulated visions for a future society, and individuals play an outsized role in political organization–but a high degree of cooperation is necessary to be successful–such an enterprise seems dicey at best.

C. Add to this the fact that oversight from existing legal structures will be nil, and actual ability to send people to intervene virtually nonexistent. Compare, by way of example, the political chaos that existed in early colonization efforts in America (h/t to @femmenietzsche‘s podcasts on the subject), where the environment was much *more* hospitable, and economic incentives to colonization existed at least in theory (gold, tobacco, acquiring slaves for sugar plantations).

(Luckily, Mars has no native population, so we can at least be assured that particular kind of monstrosity will not be recapitulated.)

D. There exist forms of political organization, and visions of civil society, that I think would be well adapted to the Martian context (consesus decisionmaking, anarchosyndicalism, even just the comparatively modest reforms to modern liberal capitalism proposed by people like Yanis Varoufakis that would minimize wealth inequality and prevent the emergence of huge social divisions in an early colony). They haven’t been tried at large scale though; I don’t think Musk is a particular supporter of those ideas (could be wrong); and any colonization attempt steeped in atomistic individualism/strong libertarianism is likely to be skeptical of such forms of organization.

E. Incidentally I think any group of initial colonists should be stacked so as to encourage a unique Martian ethnogenesis: it should be diverse, favoring no nationality or ethnic group (as much as possible), but with a strong common ideological reference point. It should try as much as possible to take the positive lessons of historical settler colonialism, while learning from the negatives (again, luckily no natives to displace; but nativism still possible, and the importing of old prejudices from Earth.)

F. But I think it would be better to hold off colonizing Mars at a large scale until we’re better about dealing with political tensions in general, and we can apply well-tested lessons learned on Earth to any attempt to build a new society on another planet.

IV. Miscellany

A. Trying to build human-hospitable environments on Mars is difficult and kinda dumb. Trying to terraform it is even dumber. Better to just genetically engineer humans and Earth biota to survive better on Mars (or at least to survive on a semi-terraformed Mars, or isolated environments that don’t have to be made entirely Earthlike). The energy cost is far lower, for the simple reason you don’t have to move millions of kg of stuff around to accomplish it (or worry about your terraformed atmosphere leaking off into space, because Mars is a low-gravity shithole that only seems attractive for colonization because Venus melts lead).

B. But honestly, if we’re going to go that far, just genetically and cybernetically engineer humans to live in asteroids, or a hard vacuum or something; much science fiction, and actual ambition, around human colonization of other worlds and spacefaring in general is predicated around the assumption we must make the universe hospitable to us; why not make ourselves hospitable to the universe? The essentially good things about humanity are not our number of toes or the spectrum of light we use to see, so there’s no reason to be too attached to them–and if we indeed want to ensure the survivability of our descendants, while being a multi-planet species is a start, being able to exist somewhere other than the very narrow shell of temperatures/air pressures/chemically favorable environments found on the surface of the Earth would be even better.

anonymous asked:
Hi there~! I’m new to this tumblr Ask stuff so bear with me please! Q~Q – I would like to ask for a Scenario of V TaeTae dating/liking an older girl. Idk maybe 3-5 years older than V?(nothing too uncomfortable.) Said girl has a thing for older guys and feels like a pedo-noona with a liking a guy even a month younger? Maybe some Angst along with a happy ending? ^-^ Maybe in the girl’s perspective? idk~ T.T Thank you anyway! ^o^

A/N: I know a lot of you guys have been waiting… it’s so bad omg i’m so sorry
It took me over a week to write this because I procrastinate a lot

Genre: Fluff

Word Count: 1628

“Noona!” Jungkook exclaimed as you walked into their studio. He ran up to you, “What are you doing here? We don’t have a performance, do we?” he asked, eyes wide. You laughed and patted him on the head, “No, I’m just here to visit before I go on my mini vacation” you smile.
You were older than Jungkook by four years. He always told you that you were like a mother figure to him, besides, Jin of course. You liked that he thought of you in that way, but you also didn’t. it made you sound too old.
“Vacation?” Jin asks, walking through the corridor. You nod, “Must be nice. We haven’t had one for a while… And I wouldn’t really consider our breaks as vacations. Because we’re still technically working during our break for the next comeback.” You walk up to him, “That’s true, but you have to be there for the ARMY’s. What would they do without you?” you giggled. He laughed along and chatted with you until the rest of the members came back home from, whatever hey were doing.

“Noona?” Taehyung and Jimin say in unison as they walk through the front door, “Hi boys!” you say, walking over to them to give them individual hugs. Your hug with Taehyung lingered a bit longer than the other boys, but you didn’t really seem to care. You just thought he was the more, affectionate type.  
“She’s going on vacation” Jin says, walking up to the three of you. Taehyung’s face saddened but he tried to form a decent smile, “Don’t worry, I’m only gone for a week” You say, grabbing Taehyung’s hand. He stared up at you, could someone hands really be this soft? You checked your phone, “Ah, my ride is here, I guess I’ll see you guys soon! Don’t miss me too much” you tease, sticking out your tongue as you headed out the door.
“Bye!” Everyone waved.
Jimin placed a hand on Taehyung’s shoulder, “Don’t worry Tae, you can confess when she comes back, but you better be prepared”
Taehyung sighed, ‘I’ll miss you a lot’ he thought as he closed the door.

~~~

“What?!” Yoongi and Jungkook yelled, “Tae likes Noona?!” Jungkook asked. Taehyung shyly nodded, “But she told me that she feels like she’ll be a pedo if she dates someone that’s even a few months younger, and here I am… a few years younger” Taehyung said
Namjoon laughed, “Why did you tell us though?”
“He wants your help to ask her out”
“WOOAAHHHHH” Everyone yelled and hollered around the room, “He’s for real” Hoseok said, “You’re for real?” he said again, facing Taehyung this time. Taehyung nodded shyly.
“This is the first time I’ve seen him look so embarrassed” Yoongi chuckled.
“Okay, we’ll help”

~~~

You had just arrived in Honolulu, Hawaii. You took in the fresh scent, and were happy about what you wore because of the humidity.
You checked into your hotel and unpacked. It was around 7-ish, the perfect time to view the sunset. Your room had a beautiful ocean view exactly where the sun was setting. You stepped onto your balcony and stared out, “It’s really beautiful…”
You felt your phone vibrate in your pocket, “oh yeah, I forgot to text the boys that I was here” You pulled out your phone and saw Taehyung’s name. You smiled. Even though you knew you were older than him, there was just something about him that really grabbed your attention. Maybe it was the way he danced or licked his lips. But something about him really made your heart pound whenever you saw him. You knew the relationship you have with him has to be strictly professional, thus ending up in you just having a secret crush on him.
Even though you thought and maybe dreamt about being with him, you knew it probably wouldn’t happen. There were so many people that loved him and he could honestly pick any of them, so why you?

You gave your phone a questionable look. He never asked you to call. None the less, you dialed his number and listened to the rings as small crack was heard before someone spoke
“Hello?”
“Tae?”
“Noona?”
“I told you not to call me that Tae.. I’m only a few years older than you, saying that makes me feel old” you pouted, knowing he couldn’t see it
“Sorry”
“What did you want to call me for?” you ask
“Well… I just think.. that it would be good if we could chat from time to time… and I wanted to hear your voice” he mumbled the last part
“What did you say?”
“That it would be nice to call you from time to time?”
“No no, the other part”
“I… wanted to hear your voice”
“Taehyung…”
“Oh! I uh.. I have to go, the boys are calling me over. I’ll text you!”
“Oh um.. okay, bye”
“Bye~”

He hung up the phone and you were even more confused than it was before. Could it be that..? No.. there’s no way.. he’s just being nice you thought. You shrugged it off and went out to grab something to eat.
The whole way there, you just thought about what taehyung had said. He wanted to hear your voice? How come? Did he miss you? Was he forced to say it by the other boys?
All these thoughts came into your mind but you just shook them off before you went too far. You got some pasta to go since you would like to eat in the comfort of your own hotel room.

~~~

“You chickened out” Jimin laughed
“Shut up!” Taehyung said, angrily walking away. He went into his room and sat down on the bed, sighing as he laid back. ‘Why is it so hard to talk to the person you like?’ he asked himself
He turned his phone back on. He was debating on whether he should call again. Maybe it was too soon, maybe he should wait a bit longer. Like an hour or so.

~~~

During the whole week you were gone, most of the hours went to texting or calling Taehyung. It made you fall for him even more, and the same goes for him.
He made the decision to pick you up from the airport since you were coming home tomorrow. And that was the perfect time for him to confess his feelings to you. He didn’t care if you were older. It wasn’t even by that much. And either way, he would confess, even if you turned him down. He was just really hoping that you liked him back.
You insisted that you could take a cab since your flight didn’t arrive until past midnight, but he really fought and said it was okay because he would be ‘awake anyway’

After a long flight of sleeping and reading and being on your phone, you finally arrive. You had headphones on and looked like someone that nobody would want to mess with, but you just blamed being tired.
You walked to the terminal and tried to spot Taehyung. Maybe he forgot? Then again, you just texted him before you got on your flight. Just then, you heard your name being called. You looked up to see someone running towards you.
“Tae..?”
“Y/N!” he ran right up to you and engulfed you in a tight hug, “I missed you so much!”
you smiled, “I missed you too”
He let you go after what seemed like forever and stared up at you.
‘How could you have gotten more beautiful in just a week?’ he thought. You blushed and he realized that he accidentally said that comment out loud.
“S-Sorry! S-Should we go?”
“Uh.. yeah, sure”

The car drive was pretty awkward after what he said. It was like that almost the entire way back to your apartment. Besides, “how was the flight”
“How was the vacation”
and “did you have fun”
He stopped the engine when he parked on your driveway. He got out of the car and grabbed your stuff, walking you to your door.
“Thanks for the ride, you really don’t have to come to the 5th floor with me tae” you giggled
“No, I have to. It’s a man’s job” he smiled. You laughed and nodded as you both walked into the elevator.
Things were better then. You had more conversation on that one elevator trip than you did for the whole 30-minute car drive.
You soon saw your hallway approaching and you felt sad, not wanting the moment with Taehyung to be over. You stopped at your door, opening it up and looking at him.
“Well… I guess this is my stop” you say. He nodded but didn’t say anything. You took that as a signal to start closing the door. Right before you closed it, a hand stopped you.
“W-wait y/n” you opened it up again to see Taehyung flustered and looking at the ground. You hardly ever saw him like this. He was always bubbly and excited.
“I-I… I really…”
You heart started beating faster. Was he going to say what you thought he was going to say?
“I really like you” he mumbled. The pounding in your ear drums didn’t allow you to hear properly, “Sorry? What was that?”
“I really… like you.. y’n..”
Were you hearing right? Did he just confess to you? No way.. An idol was confessing to you? Was this even possible
“I-It’s okay if you don’t like me back! I understand… I-I’ll get going-“
You pulled him in for a kiss. You had no idea that was coming but it just felt so right. He pulled away, face flushed and cheeks rosy.
“I like you too” you say, pulling him back in

anonymous asked:

I was wondering if you could do an analysis or some sort of write up to sum up nana and hachi' relationship, I mean I know you ship them, as do I, I was just wondering your thoughts on them a bit more

I’m compiling and editing a bunch of images from NANA at the moment, in preparation of doing giant analyses for certain characters and relationships in NANA - Nana and Hachi will most likely have multiple ones.

But for right now, here are some thoughts that I probably never would have said if you hadn’t asked:

  • Nana is the fated love that Hachi has been hoping for, the love that’s like the movies. Nana doesn’t believe in fate, she believes people make their own destinies (words she borrowed from Ren, but she honestly believes them), but Hachi doesn’t. She believes meeting Nana was fate, its the first thing she says in the main story. Whether it is fate or just a combination of their own choices leading to coincidences that lead them to each other, Nana is the one that Hachi has been wanting to meet. The movie-like love, two people thrown together by a string of coincidences. They even had a meet cute, like honestly.
  • (This ended up much longer than previously thought so I’m coming back and inserting a readmore.)

priui  asked:

what were your top 5 anime of 2016?

Oh my this is gonna be tough y'all ready for this

1. Boku Dake ga Inai Machi/Erased - I know it got shit for the last three episodes but please hear me out: coming from a writing standpoint that is one of the most well written anime or any kind of visual media form I have ever seen. What I mean by this is the fact that this anime knows how to tell and show its story with just enough information that doesn’t dumb down the audience. I also think the timing and placement of showing this information to the audience is beautiful too because sometimes you can info dump at random places but I truly feel the plot points in this anime that had the information told to us was at the right moment. Idk man there’s just some good dialogue and writing in this show despite how “bad” the ending was. So tl;dr please watch this anime if you want to know a good example of showing and telling your audience with just the right amount of information.

2. 91 Days - I’m so in love with this anime I am so upset literally almost no one saw this anime on my dash I am ashamed of you all who didn’t see this jk but anyway for real this anime is a fucking masterpiece to me. Idk if it’s because I love mafia and crime genres but this anime really sets the tone so well. You want to watch an anime that doesn’t have a lot of rambling and info dumping? THIS IS YOUR ANIME. LOOK MAN, VISUAL MOVING PICTURES IS SUPPOSED TO TELL YOUR STORY THROUGH ACTION THAT IS WHAT CINEMA IS SUPPOSED TO BE. Oh my god I can’t stress how well they executed this. They can tell this story so well through character action and emotion it’s like watching poetry to me??? Yes there’s dialogue but I really think this anime got a lot of its points across through the action and the visuals and the placement of the camera. The pacing the characterization the FUCKING ACTION IS JUST SO WELL WRITTEN? fuck I already miss this anime. Also if you haven’t seen it you’re missing out on an A+ opening by tk. Yeah that guy who did oshiete oshiete sono shikumi wo

3. Both Dangan Ranpas: I think I will just lump both of them together since they intertwine with each other. It’s a pretty good continuation of the games and it does clear a lot of things up. I will admit there was a lot of unnecessary characters but I mean they gotta make bank right. I do like the despair arc way better because it was interesting to see how they all turned into despair and some parts was actually gross like I was actually kind of grossed out how fucking messed up this whole series is. Fucking junko man

4. Yuri on Ice - tbh this was the only winter anime I finished I gave up on everything else. As much as I am for the next person that loves the ship of victuuri I am more impressed with how realistic the ice skating competition is. There have been many times I held my breath watching the skaters do their program in anticipation and yelped when they fell. I know they are just animated characters but you can just tell. I think this anime also gave a pretty good job of actually developing ALMOST EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER? THATS PRETTY DAMN IMPRESSIVE? THE ONLY ANIME I KNOW THAT EVER DID THAT WAS DURARARA SO YEAH YOU GO YOI. And I do agree with a few essays of how well this pacing is especially with Yuuri’s insecurities and his relationship with Viktor both professionally and romantically. My one complaint is probably going to be the really jarring shift in tone at the beginning… but I got used to it at the end like the whole going dramatic to super comical really felt out of place to me in this kind of anime. I will also note that the animation for everything in this anime is fucking gorgeous.

5. Cheer Danshi - another anime that pretty much was dry on my dash. I thought it would get a lot of recognition from the fujoshis too because it’s about boys cheerleading but nope…. but honestly this anime is really well written I love the writing in this. Like all of the boys felt so real, they felt like you actually knew these boys very well. They aren’t like cookie cutter archetype boys like your token shouta or leader type boy like these boys actually have personality. It’s pretty difficult to write characters that have their own personality, but I think what really worked for this anime is that they don’t make it as “hahaha he’s fat” kind of thing. They don’t make it a big deal that one guy is fat they actually treat him like a real person. And one character is obsessed with squirrels and has bad fashion sense but they don’t make him the butt of the joke. They actually gave this character a voice and perspective on cheerleading. I think this anime is a great example of well written characters in not just development (there’s a lot of that) but also how to make the characters feel more human.

So yeah those are my in depth analysis of this year’s anime (I might make a graphic when my computer isn’t shit uhhh) oh and

Bonus. Mayoiga/Lost Village - if ANYONE HAS SEEN THIS ANIME LIKE ANYONE??? you will know this anime sucked ass. I wanted to note this anime because I cannot believe that this is one of the best examples I’ve seen of “really good concept, poorly executed” type of ordeal. Like it starts out with a good idea of bringing a bunch of characters to a village to start their lives over. The village is creepy and there’s spoopy things that happen… but the twist… is…. just…. like how did this anime even happen? If you want more laughs and giggles on this you should read the Reddit threads on this anime because they tried to give this anime a kill chart but guess what didn’t happen lol but really they could have done so much with this anime but they didn’t. I appreciate their effort though 👍

Also thanks for asking!!! I had fun doing this haha

Personal experiences with the signs

Aries: actual real life sweethearts. Really funny, really caring, super fashionable, giving and great cuddlers. A+ will cuddle again.

Taurus: sweetest of all babies!!!! Anxious and self conscious sometimes, but strangely good at literally everything?? Always tries to think from each perspective, quite resourceful. Super cute inside and out.

Gemini: I hate you guys tbh I’m totally on board with the “two faced” thing like honestly y'all going to school and talk in the softest tone ever pretending to be all meek and shy and sweet but then you’ll go home and like insult everyone and get pissed if someone breathes at you wrong. Unpleasant, leaves used tissues and dirty dishes all over place. 0/10 would not Gemini again.

Cancer: I’ve only ever met one cancer and she was cute and had a sweet innocent fashion but was p muscular and very nice and also somewhat sheltered and clueless but that’s ok bb.

Leo: you guys idk. I get along well enough with you guys, got a similar sense of humor to Aquarius but like man you guys are fucking ruthless and completely out of fucks to give. sometimes you can be pretty stubborn. Questionable hobbies. Actually has absolutely no sense of fashion.

Virgo: such sweet babies!!! Questionable but cute fashion sense but you make it work. Lots of hobbies, really smart but also procrastinates too much. Usually not in a bad mood, really funny people with questionable sense of humor. You guys r great tho 10/10 good job.

Libra: you guys need to chill!!!! Damn!!!! Yall the type of people to bring your weird kinky sex to Walmart!!!! Also stop talking all day bout ya damn kinks and fetishes but being a little baby when you get near the back of Spencer’s!!!!!!! Insensitive. Pretentious. Can’t make up ya damn mind.

Scorpio: just plain unpleasant!!! ugly fashion sense. Hypocrites, unnecessarily and excessively rude!! you think you’re all that and a bag of cool ranch Doritos!
New flash: you aren’t!! Aside from this yall got mad inappropriate humor. Also keeps jokes going after everyone else is done and tired of them. Also: completely reckless. Lord have mercy.

Sagittarius: almost endangered. Donating a dollar a day can save at least 250 Sagittarius a day. Even you can make a difference. Donate now.

Capricorn: like literally always talking about and smelling like weed, guilt trips you often, lies a lot, continues to deny it after you caught them, extreme mother figures, over protective, take things too far. Try to chill sometime without weed.

Aquarius: Big ego, completely open minded, likes to laugh and make people laugh, but not be laughed at. Holds a grudge for YEARS. Over analyzes everything, supreme know-it-alls. Artistic in some way or another. Good at absorbing information.

Pisces: cute smile, cute hair, big on cuddling. Bad at lying. Fashion sense that makes me sad. Usually some uber cool hobbies, very coordinated. Sweet though, pretty funny. Pretty in general.

kris vs. sm essay

submitting this on behalf of the writer with permission b/c TRUTH

Part 1: Kris Wu Yi Fan is an “entitled child”

Because apparently this is the hill I wanna die on, or something, I’mma have to call out the level of hypocrisy and entitlement in the fans who are all about labeling Kris Kevin Wu Yi Fan Li a selfish human being for, essentially, wanting to quit his really high profile job before an important team deadline. There’s all this stuff from fans calling him childish, lazy, dead to them, whatever, and I just literally read a tweet from someone I’d have previously thought was a p sane, reasonable person that read “myocarditis isn’t even a serious untreatable disease wtf” and like, DAMN. (As a medical student, I’d like to say uh, yes it is serious. And secondly, if you or your loved ones are diagnosed with myocarditis SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP.)

I wanna give y’all the benefit of the doubt and say you are proponents of idk, basic human rights, and would protest labor standards that would lead to emotional and physical distress in basically any other working context at any other job in the world so like, why is this any different?

(AND IF YOUR ANSWER IS HONESTLY BECAUSE IT HURTS THE FEELINGS OF/MAKES LIFE A LITTLE HARDER FOR YOUR OPPAS, ON ANY LEVEL, I WANT YOU TO TAKE TWELVE STEPS BACK AND REEVALUATE YOUR LIFE.)

The fact that this job happens to literally revolve around providing us, the fans, with personal entertainment and joy, only makes this all the more entitled. 

We’re not unaware this stuff has been going on. How many jokes do we make about SME (and other entertainment companies, surely) and its treatment of its employees: intense training period, weirdly parochial non-dating policy, live-in manager dorm life, incredibly intense back to back schedules, uncontrolled sasaeng activity, repeated proof and indication that these kids are expected to pull through despite illness and injury as a celebrity “culture”, idols themselves nonchalantly mentioning that they only sleep a couple hours a night, on average, or that they starve themselves before important events and all as a part of an entertainment industry. Like, to provide the public with a little fun in their lives. AND they earn very little to nothing in the way of real wages for years and years of this.

(Not even gonna address the people who are still LOL OMGGG PLS STOP TRYING TO RIP ON SM THAT’S SO OLD, because honestly if one or more lawsuits occurring in every single generation: HOT, Shinhwa, Dbsk, Super Junior, Exo, is not enough of an indicator to you that there is something seriously wrong with the system that continues to be unaddressed, nothing will, and god bless you.) 

There isn’t anything to glorify about this. If the other eleven members continue to push on in whatever conditions, giving statements that there’s nothing wrong between them and the company, praising a standard of “hard work to achieve their dreams” (a part of SM culture that is so ingrained and underlined that they released an entire documentary about three of their golden boys living out just this theme) then they’ve made up their minds and are able to shoulder the standards of a fundamentally flawed system and we can only wish them the best. And maybe continue to enjoy the music and entertainment after yet another wake up call that everything is not just brotherhood and dreams and idk cute gimmicks on tv shows. 

This DOES NOT make the other eleven better people than Kris. It does not make them stronger, or harder, or wiser or whatever the f. This DOES NOT make Kris a selfish childish person for wanting out, lord. This was probably the product of idk, six years of disillusionment but he could’ve woken up one morning and realized that he was 23 years old and where he once was healthy he now had an inflamed heart that he had to sneak away to get diagnosed on his own dang time. That the eleven other people in his team were living life from a perspective he could no longer get behind and he’d left and been brought back before and tried to work it through for the team and Exo is One and Exo Let’s Love and all that and the day to day of it just wasn’t living out. 

Basically, if you as a fan want to refuse one of the members the right to leave, because it puts greater pressure on the other eleven over-worked, over-stressed, under-rested members I’m gonna need to you to take every single seat in the whole dang building and maybe reassess why you want those people to be over-worked, over-stressed, and under-rested FOR YOU in the first place.

Part 2: But I just don’t approve of the WAY he left, or WHEN, or whatever

And to that, I say: It depends on the perspective you’re coming in from.

First, we’d have to agree that this is a case of a person getting out of a bad situation (see above). If you don’t think that’s the case, because the guy got through whatever five years of training before the fame, before anything, and is leaving at the height of the group’s popularity, while ill, because of laziness or childishness, then goodnight and goodluck, I guess.

From there, have you ever heard of or known anyone getting out of a bad situation? I’m assuming yes, because homes, institutions, whatever, this exists everywhere. People getting out of bad places LEAVE, that’s the thing. And if you agree that the situation was bad, you don’t tell them they can’t, or when they should, or who they should tell first.ESPECIALLY if they’ve tried to leave before in one or more instances, more quietly, in a different manner, at, as you would say, “a better time”, and have been dragged back by the entity they are trying to escape from, convinced to stay by people around them they care about, who profess to care about them. 

ESPECIALLY if you are just a random sitting behind a computer somewhere, who benefitted from or enjoyed the job the person’s trying to escape. Damn. 

(Is no one really creeped out by Suho’s PR “irresponsible to the fans” pronouncement? Like, I don’t want anyone to continue to sing and dance against their will because they’re responsible to ME, jc.)

Second, are we really, I mean really, arguing on BEHALF of SM here? Uhh, as the victim? Because the timing surprised them, or is inconvenient for them? You’re right, it’s not NICE that Kris left now. But this is a tactical escape from a powerful entity. Like, that’s how it’s done, and it’s not necessarily a moral or “nice” thing, but uhh how does someone nicely extricate themselves from a very powerful company that has them in a binding contract anyway? Looking back at DBSK, Hangeng, etc., all legal precedent would suggest you can’t, because the system is inherently hard to bust out of. 

He could’ve told his bandmates/teammates/friends and coworkers that he was leaving, but again, as some random sitting behind a computer who has no claims on THEIR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS man, I don’t get to throw a temper tantrum about it because I don’t get to dictate how close they are, or should have been, or whether the others should’ve known he was sad, or whatever the f. 

The members have the prerogative to feel ANY SORTA WAY about this whole, awful situation. So does Kris. As NUGU FANS with our faces pressed up against the windows of their lives, fans who don’t bear any sort of relation to these people other than to be primary benefitors of their jobs, who don’t know anything about their relationships other than what we can glean from ours and other’s potentially unhealthy preoccupations are we really gonna stand up right now and yell to the masses how so and so should’ve TOLD US, should’ve TOLD THEM, MYOCARDITIS AIN’T BAD ENOUGH, etc.

Everyone ragging on about how what Kris did is “cold”… idk it’s pretty funny. Do you know this dude? Do you know the people who you’re all up in arms over, spitting vitriol to defend because one of their friends and coworkers quit his job unexpectedly on them after being dragged back a couple times? You’re the equivalent of the random busting in on some corporate meeting telling the guy trying to leave that he’s a jerk for hurting the feelings of everyone there, or the stranger off the street running into some house to tell the dude trying to run away from a bad situation that he really should tell like, SOMEBODY he’s trying to leave, or risk you calling him an asshole. 

Idk, it’s a messy situation all around. People are right to be hurt, or angry, or whatever, but when fans start that game about how some dude they don’t know should have PUSHED THROUGH the difficulties of the job where he sings and dances for them, or insist that he should’ve extricated himself from that job in a way that was nicer to THE OTHER DUDES THEY DON’T KNOW, that’s where I draw the line.

Most of the things that Tom got ticked about were cultural things like in hell demons wear those things on their head so Tom wanted her to do that but he wasnt at all mean to her when she didnt and he tried to move on and make it work. it seemed traditional that unicorn blood be spilled on a couple like for all we know this toms first ball??? Idk it was his night too and he probably had the whole night planned out but even when things went off track he still tried to keep cool for star TOM IS A GOOD GUY OK

The ONLY time he lost his cool was when his dance that he had PROBABLY been planning for for a while got stolen by this kid he barely knew who chopped his hand off earlier. From his perspective id lose it too quite honestly

Okay I’ll finally discuss coming out to my dad about being trans lmao. Like this post if you read under the cut please! Its not personal but its like.. idk it was a Big Thing so I’d appreciate if you let me know you read it!

AvengingAngel!Simmons & Other Allusions

Anon said: Hi, I think theyre going to do something bad to jemma, maybe not in the next episode or even this season, but theyre setting up for her death or something else. The amount of foreshadowing (the wings, casual comments,etc) and all the times she’s been in danger is with falling, this cant be a casually cuz they are marvel and if you want to put your character’s life in danger there’s millions of situations you can use, so why the falling? maybe she will fall and it will be a fall she wont survive.

Interesting. I didn’t connect the angel imagery with all the falling - though she has been doing that a lot, hasn’t she? And especially in 2x09 like that was a definite decision to have her specifically almost fall down the hole, even when her getting thrown or pinned against the floor or the wall would have been more likely. Always falling. Hmmmmmmm you’ve got my brain working now.

Honestly, from a writing perspective, I don’t think they’ll kill her, at least not soon. They’ve almost-killed her too many times and torturing Fitz any more after a point could very easily backfire on them and become stale to some of the people watching but probs not to me, because I’m sado masochistic Fitz/Simmons/Fitzsimmons trash anyway moving on

BUT

Think about metaphorical falling. Probably in the Christian tradition, because of the angel imagery.

Firstly, there’s the warrior-nurse side to her: she’s immensely protective, to the point where she is willing to do harm - mostly to herself so far - to protect others.

Then, we have seen her innocence, her goodness, begin to fray and strip away this season. For example, she has lied to everyone for most of the season so far. Yes she had her reasons, I’m not judging that, but Lucifer they called “the father of lies” used to be God’s favourite angel. Like say, bouncy little bun!Simmons with her “it makes me feel nice.”

She made friends with, lured in and framed Turgeon - again with reasons, but still, it’s something tinysmallbun!Simmons probably wouldn’t have physically/mentally/emotionally been capable of.

She ‘sold her soul’ in a way, to Hydra: she is brilliant and efficient and she worked hard even though she is opposed to their morality/goals.

She has expressed violent thoughts, especially towards Ward (“I’ll kill you”) and more cruelly, and surprisingly, toward Bakshi. (“You wanna see his head bashed in?” “That would be wrong, wouldn’t it?”)

We have seen Fitz creeping toward that edge of killing someone, but Simmons has compressed her violent urges, tried to rationalise them away, even suppressing the desire to swear. Despite all she’s been through. She has no outlet. And I feel like that could come out in a violent way, and it could come out in a way that nobody expects. She could, in biblical terms, fall from grace. (And it could be that our dear bun!Simmons, because I can’t resist the dramatic conclusion, won’t “survive.”)
