Death is not an Escape


Dead by Daylight fanart of my ever favourite killer, the Wraith (Ding Dong) because I just adore his aesthetic and appearance. It was fun to experiment with it and I think I drawn more then enough cornfield for my entire life. 

This game has such an amazing lore behind and concept.

Time for some fun speculation! It looks like the Evil Queen’s sleeping curse may have a surprising twist.

Snow White had been asleep from before Emma was transported to the wish realm. Charming refused to wake her up before he’d found a solution to the ‘Gideon problem’.

Right after Emma defeats Gideon, David gets caught up in seeking answers about his father’s death. After he faints, Hook tells him to kiss Snow and get some sleep, but David refuses.

The next scene is the next morning when Regina gives Robin clothes and then right after we see this conversation between Regina and Snow. It’s a bit out of the blue but our minds fill in the blanks. We assume David has changed his mind and woken her up, maybe left a video explaining what happened and that she went to Regina.

At that point, it’s not that strange, she could go see Emma later. Except she doesn’t. The next thing we know, it’s the same morning and she’s back in asleep as David gets up. Soon after we’re drawn into his mission again.

Now hold up. This is Snow White the Maternal we’re talking about. Her daughter went to a wish realm, came back, almost got killed by Rumplestiltskin’s son - honestly, the one that left her pregnant and incarcerated wasn’t enough? - and she is only spending time with Regina? Emma’s life is still in danger. Snow has been asleep for a long time and now she’s already turning in after being awake for only the night? Not even trying to go see Emma?

Then there is Snow’s video message. No mention of Emma, no mention of him not waking her up for such a long time. It’s the first time she has a chance to say anything to him about everything that’s going on, but the message could be that of any other day… She loves and misses him. 

Then there’s David. He didn’t seem like he was planning on waking Snow up. He was on a mission, both to stop Gideon and now he had an extra mission to figure out what happened to his father. He had two missions now and no solutions. He knew that if he woke up his wife, he wouldn’t have control over when to continue or whether she’d react like him. Trying to solve things before waking him. By showing him as he fainted, we were reminded that he didn’t have to wake Snow in order to sleep…

So maybe all he did was get some sleep without waking Snow up. Maybe he simply watched an older video first thing in the morning because he misses her? We never saw him wake her up or vice versa. We never got her response to the events of the past days. All she talked about was Robin Hood, which shouldn’t exactly be her main concern.

So the alternative explanation is that we were shown where Snow or Charming go when they are sleeping. We know they are under a sleeping curse and we know that sleeping curses send you to a physical place that is also very real - Henry got burned by going back to the burning room. So what if the Queen twisted it up so that a parallel universe was created where the circumstances were exactly the same? As soon as Snow White falls asleep, she wakes up in a Storybrooke where Charming is asleep. There is never a break, they can’t even dream about being together?

If that’s true, then the last scene could have taken place in the real world or in the parallel dream universe. David tells Hook he’s overdue to wake Snow - again suggesting she may have been asleep longer than since the morning - and the next scene we see Charming asleep and Snow once again talking to Regina. Either Charming got home, woke Snow and then Regina came over, or we switched to the dream world where to Snow it looks like Charming is asleep. Confusing much?

So, why is all of this so important? 

…because we have a musical coming up, of course! There are a few Buffy references on Once Upon a Time, so Buffy’s ‘Once more with feeling’ is bound to come up, especially since they took Willow & Tara’s line “I will always find you.” and made it iconic on Once. One of the funny little jokes of that episode is that the very first explanation for their vocal predicament during the song “I’ve got a theory” is immediately the right one. 

…so why wouldn’t Once Upon a Time use the second explanation offered by that couple they already like so much? (If anyone writes a meta on evil witches, midgets or bunnies being the cause, I’ll be over here, tag me.)

If without knowing it, we switched to the perspective of the dream world, with no way back to the regular world if the curse ends up being broken while we are on the inside. Could we get stuck in a world that is biased towards Snow, since she was the first one to fall asleep?

…and wouldn’t that make an awful lot of sense that a wedding between Emma and Hook took place because Emma is in a world where she is literally living out her parents’ dreams instead of her own?

The wish realm was a place without the Evil Queen, where Snow and Charming had control over their kingdom, but also over their daughter.

Emma didn’t like the person she was there very much and Regina points to one specific aspect of the white princess that sums it all up.

…so if on top of a wedding everyone also bursts into song, shouldn’t that finally start clueing people in that we are in a world that’s a little biased? That’s a little Snow and a little Charming and a little bit too far to be comfortable?

Emma & Regina would agree.

Someone pointed out that Marina’s speak sounds more like English than Inkling speak does, which is A.) interesting, and B.) something you’ll hear forever once you have the thought in your head.

  • friend: what's wrong?
  • me, internally: fox hasn't renewed brooklyn nine nine yet and it's really stressing me out because there's still too much that needs to happen like jake & amy getting married and having kids, and holt & kevin having an actual wedding ceremony and rosa & gina need to just hook up at some point we're all waiting for it but if fox doesn't renew it we won't get these and it feels like the walls are closing in on my chest because of it
  • me: nothing

reasons to read/watch One Piece

  • there’s an 8 foot tall talking singing skeleton with an afro who makes bad puns all the time what’s there not to love
  • there’s a 7 foot tall cyborg who hates pants and says super a lot and he’s powered by cola
  • sky islands
  • at one point someone turns into a giraffe and it’s hilarious but then the giraffe guy actually cuts a building in half because he got pissed at everyone (including his own partner) for not taking his giraffe form seriously. one of his attacks was called “pasta machine
  • the main character is canonically asexual/aromantic. one time he saw the world’s most beautiful woman half naked and his response was “Huh? Why are you naked? Where’s the food?”
  • this series will make you cry over boats and whales. and dogs. and reindeer. and hats
  • none of the main characters have a real romance or romantic relationship with anyone
  • USOPP his whole introduction arc is about him lying to a girl to make her feel better because she had depression, and it was working. (his “lies“ are larger than life stories about him as a kid pirate)
  • THERE’S A HALLOWEEN ARC I REPEAT THERE’S A HALLOWEEN ARC CALLED THRILLER BARK COMPLETE WITH ZOMBIES AND CERBERUS AND MONSTERS AND THERE’S ACTUALLY A LOGICAL EXPLANATION FOR IT ALL
  • AT ONE POINT THE ZOMBIES DO A DISCO DANCE
  • there’s a guy named Buggy the Clown and he actually looks like a clown but not out of choice he was born with a big red nose and he gets pissed whenever people mention it (or sound like they mention it)
  • exploding ghosts
  • evil ventriloquist puppet pigeons that may or may not actually be evil
  • one guy’s devil fruit power is to eat anything and then turn into what he eats and it’s actually a pretty dangerous power
  • all the emphasis is on familial love and friendship
  • did i mention that one character is a tiny cute reindeer who’s also a very, very good doctor
  • ANCIENT CONSPIRACY THEORIES like there’s this whole century of history that’s been erased by the World Government and its forbidden to study it
  • there are also these things called Poneglyphs that are indestructible stones with ancient language written on them and they come from that blank century and no one is allowed to study them. the World Government says b/c of the Ancient Weapons that the Poneglyphs talk about (which are real) but in reality they don’t want the information on the people and country the stones originated from to become known knowledge. the world government literally burned down an entire island and wiped it from the map for doing this
  • BUBBLES BUBBLE BIKES AND BUBBLE CAR THINGS
  • MERMAIDS!!
  • devil fruit powers okay some of them are really cool like turning into fire or magma or causing earthquakes, but then there’s stuff like turning into a giraffe, slowing things down, being rubber, returning from the dead, controlling/becoming a ghost, controlling shadows, SPROUTING LIMBS FROM ANY SURFACE, secreting poison, being able to cut people up without killing them and switching their body parts around and switching their personalities. one character can control hormones and another can turn his hands into giant scissors. and the thing is, ALL THESE POWERS ARE STILL REALLY DANGEROUS
  • Water Luffy. Luffy is impaled by a giant hook at one point and almost dies and then like literally a day later he shows up with a giant barrel of water b/c the villain’s weakness is water. but the villain can also absorb water, so Luffy does the logical thing and CHUGS THE WHOLE BARREL OF WATER UNTIL HE LOOKS LIKE A HUMAN WATER BALLOON AND THEN HE STARTS LEAKING FROM THE VERY SERIOUS WOUND THAT NEARLY KILLED HIM AND SAYS “AHH!! I SPRUNG A LEAK!!”
  • this quote: “When does a man die? When he’s struck by a deadly disease? No. When he’s shot through the heart with a pistol? No. when eh eats soup made from a poisonous mushroom? No!! A Man dies… when people forget him.”
  • you’ll cry over that mushroom
  • Luffy’s idea of an insult is calling a guy who uses three-sword style “four -sword style”
  • also one guy holds a sword in each hand and one in his mouth and it’s badass as fuck i kid you not
  • literally no plot device is forgotten like everything mentioned at one point WILL COME BACK. one time a character was shown in a tiny panel in a super short flashback in chapter 13 or so, and then like 400-500 chapters later TURNS OUT THAT RANDOM BACKGROUND CHARACTER IS ACTUALLY A MAJOR CHARACTER
  • Angels!! Giants!! Dwarfs!! Long armed people!! Long legged people!! Minks!! Fishman!! there’s so many different species it’s great

it goes without saying that i would ship emma and neal regardless of who henry’s father turned out to be. but the fact that he is henry’s father, the fact that emma and neal were and always will be connected through him–the fact that they found love and home in each other–can never be erased. to henry, neal is his one and only father in every way that counts. to emma, he’s her first love. no one can ever replace him in their lives.

a+e might want us to forget about swanfire and their journey, bittersweet as it was. but the truth is, they were the lost boy and the lost girl, no one else. once upon a time, they found each other, and for a while there, emma, neal, and their son were a family. no ship, no writers, and no retcons can take that away from us.

Once Upon a Time Duo Preview David and Hook's Life-Changing Team-Up

“Josh doesn’t do well with no sleep,” Once Upon a Time‘s Ginnifer Goodwin says of her on- and off-screen husband. “And neither does David,” Josh Dallas adds. And thus sets the stage for this Sunday’s episode (ABC, 8/7c), in which Charming aims to settle some unfinished business while his misses continues her unbreakable slumber.

As revealed earlier this season, the death of David’s father, long-ago back in The Enchanted Forest, may have been no accident. So while Snow White remains zonked by a sleeping curse, Charming will set out to uncover the truth.

“He’s got so many things that he wants to fix before she wakes up, so he stays up a little longer than he should,” Dallas shared with TVLine during our visit to the Once set this week. “That erratic, up-all-night, haven’t-slept-for-days kind of takes over David, and he becomes single-minded in not only trying to save Emma [from Gideon], but trying to figure out the truth of his past. He’s visited by the ghost of his father (played by Van Helsing‘s David Cubitt), and his past is not what he thought it was.”

Charming, though, will need a helping hand (singular) in his mission, so he turns to a certain resourceful buccaneer. “He forces Hook a bit into helping him,” Dallas says, “and thank god he does, because Hook ends up saving him in many ways, and forcing him to see clearly.”

Hook, in turn, sees an opportunity to prove himself more than a pirate to David, whom he just might be thinking of calling “father-in-law” at some point.

“Hook knows that he wants to be with Emma,” Colin O’Donoghue explains, “so he kind of wants to get David’s permission to propose to her.”

But as seen in promos, things between the gents get tense, possibly derailing Hook’s bid to repair his reputation. “Yes, something will bite him in the butt…,” O’Donoghue hints.

In the end, though, what Charming comes to discover will have significant ramifications. “It changes the course of his life from here onward,” Dallas teases, “because he thought it was one way and it was actually another.”

Surveying the two-hander (as it were) as a whole, O’Donoghue says, “It’s always great to have two-person scenes on the show, and it was great to have those scenes with Josh, and really get to explore that relationship of Hook and Charming.

“I’m hundreds of years older than him, but I want him to be my father-in-law,” the Irishman notes with a laugh. “And we’re friends, we’re not friends…. It’s complicated, so it’s really good!”

Hook is the first person who hasn’t let her down. Even though he’s done some bad things in his past, he’s never done anything bad to Emma. He’s always been good to her and shown up for her. That’s been her biggest issue with how many times she’s been abandoned and left behind, and Hook shows up for her. - Jennifer Morrison

Signaling Vs. Seeding

Hello everyone! I’ve been meaning to make this post for awhile since I don’t see a lot of distinction between these two things when queerness is discussed in the fandom. They’re sort of used interchangeably when they’re actually wildly different things with wildly different functions. As always, it’s an opinion based on my own experiences, so you’re welcome to take it or leave it, but I haven’t seen anything discussing this particular issue before and it’s something that really bothers me, as it’s harmful and often rooted in homophobia to misconstrue queer signaling as some type of public performance and I see it being done constantly in this fandom.

Also, I use the word “queer” freely in this post as an umbrella term to mean not straight. If that offends you, quit here.

Shit is so frustrating.

It honestly sucks because I’m in college and I’ve reached the point where hooking up and chilling just isn’t for me anymore but for everyone who I want to develop at least a friendship with is all they can think about.

Like I’ve met some really chill dudes who I fuck with heavy, but those relationships were ruined because all they cared about was fucking and what they could get out of me. Even when they hit me up now to hang out and I tell them I’m abstinent they are so turned off they make excuses of why they can’t hang out and I really hate it. Like you are saying I can only serve one purpose to you and that’s kind of fucked up; like I’m a person with feelings, don’t just look to me because you were horny and thinking with your dick.

For one I have never liked trying to talk to multiple people at once, it gets messy so quickly and then you reach a point where you can either play with both people or hurt one in pursuit of the other and hope you don’t get dropped in the process and I just can’t do that. Like I want to genuinely give one person the time of day so I can get to know them and enjoy their company. But it seems I keep finding the guys who only want to hook up, and even for the one dude who actually really fucked with me, but wants to enjoy all the girls coming his way it sucks ya know.

People really look at being in college as the one time they can fuck as many people as they want and not really develop any type of relationship with the people who they are fucking outside that situation. And it’s crazy because I’ve met some really cool ass people but none of that shit matters if they didn’t want a relationship, and they definitely didn’t even care about being friends because even that requires effort especially if being friends doesn’t come with the benefits of fucking.

And God forbid you actually show that you care in the slightest by telling someone that you miss them, because not being in their company for too long means you are being clingy. 🙄like no my guy I clearly find you chill enough to be around if I don’t hang out with you that often.

But to get to my point. I don’t want to have sex with people just for the sake of having sex and because I find them attractive and they think I’m pretty. That’s so superficial and I can’t even be my full self if we are just fucking off looks. But forming and keeping real genuine relationships just seems to be so goddamn difficult when everyone’s main concern is how can i get so and so to fuck me. I’m just trying to find someone I can do my homework with, play video games and fall asleep on and know that my company is enough. Like let me get to know you and hang out with you first and get a sense of your energy before doing anything else.

I said all this to say. I just want some solid friends and someone’s company that isn’t driven on sex.
