how amazing she is

anonymous asked:

hi!, i know you dont believe the Undercover jon theory, but if it were true, what would be your opinion about jon?

Are you asking if I’ll judge him and consider him a rapist?

I know too much/enough about what qualifies as rape to know that if Jon is only doing Dany to fool her into believing he is utterly loyal just because he needs her dragons to save the world- he’s nothing near a rapist. In fact, people who cry and whine about this theory and claim it’s the most horrible thing to suspect and who pretend to be absolutely disgusted by this mortifying unlike-the-Jon-they-think-they-know theory… are being very disrespectful towards actual rape victims. It’s outright offensive.

If this theory turns out to be true I’ll clap because they actually managed to give Jon the wits and character depth he is entitled to and I’ll love the fact that someone saw Daenerys for what she truly is: a lonely, blind, extremely easy to manipulate fool with a staggering lack of self-control who’s looking for nothing but love and companionship in people she can trust, wandering around with the delusion that sitting her ass on a throne will actually give her that- meanwhile being a bratty, whiny, arrogant, dumb, proven to be incapable at ruling child. If Jon played her the way this theory suggests he managed to get exactly what he wanted in a very shrewd way, taking advantage of literally all her weaknesses, which he will have cleverly spotted, also playing Cersei along the way (kudos again) and doing so without actually losing a thing. Except his dignity (😬). But how much does Jon care about that? Because all of it can easily be explained by both Sansa’s ‘don’t trust Cersei’ and ‘don’t be as stupid as Robb’ advice as well as the fact that he died and doesn’t give a crap about honor anymore because wth? there’s nothing after death anyway.

If done well, it could make for good storytelling. Which is exactly why it’s not happening. But I’ve already said that.

This is asoiaf. Jon’s dark stuff shouldn’t shock and offend you, it should excite you. Because even the good guys do evil stuff and that’s actually pretty great, because honestly, you don’t WANT Jon to be the epitome of superhero. That’s boring. If that’s the Jon you want you’re loving the wrong character. Your fan girl tears don’t do him justice. Sometimes people do mean shit for the greater good. It’s actually an interesting part of Jon’s storyline. He learns that what is right is not always easy, and what is right doesn’t always seem right, and sometimes what is wrong feels good. But we do what must be done. Remember? D&D even put it in the show, when they were still trying. It’s in his conversation with Aemon where Jon himself claims his dad Ned would always do what is right. And Aemon doubts that. Because what is right?

Of course it’s not 'right’ to pretend to bend the knee and take advantage of the fact that this girl has literally no idea of Westerosi customs and therefore wouldn’t know you actually have to literally bend your knee and swear an oath with you voice using official words for it to mean (in the books Jojen and Meera swear to Bran with acient words that contains them swearing to 'ice and fire’ just an example, and we’ve all seen Umber and Karstark in episode 7.1)… to take advantage of her loneliness and her eagerness for love… nope, not right nor nice.

But some thing are worse than 'not right’. Some are absolute and utterly wrong. Giving away the North to a foreign invader who has never even set a singly foot in Winterfell, knows nothing of the Wall, of the Neck, of the Wolf’s Wood, of the Old Gods, of White Harbor… yet believes she’s entitled to it just because her insane father once sat upon a chair. To give the North away to someone who has proven to be inpatient, unafraid of violence, arrogant, self-entitled and basically all-around incapable of ruling even a small city. In fact, she brought prosperous cities to starvation and ruin. Giving your home away to someone like that… that’s much much much worse to me. That’s unforgivable.

Playing Daenerys? Lol. No that’s about as easily to forgive as Olenna poisoning Joffrey. To me. But you know how I feel. In the Netherlands we say, 'Het doel heiligt de middelen’. It means, the goals, the end, the purpose, cleans you of the sins you make to reach that. So long as the goal is the right thing.

The North must be protected, the North deserves its goddamn independence. The North deserves a king they chose, the North deserves to be rid of those Targaryens they never wanted in the first place. Jon deserves a storyline and character arch worthy of all he’s been through and all he (didn’t) survive(d).

Daenerys doesn’t deserve a loyal boyfriend who kneels just because she’s crying over her monster child, just because she has a 'good heart’ (🤢). Daenerys doesn’t deserve for the North to fall at her stamping feet when they see her for how amazing she is (🤢). Daenerys doesn’t deserve to rule a land that doesn’t want her, she doesn’t deserve for Jon to fight for her. She sure as hell doesn’t deserve the North.

Jon playing Daenerys to protect the North? Hell yeah, can’t imagine anything better and more in character for the both of them.

I want Jon to have an interesting storyline that isn’t overall boring, stereotypical, ooc, predictable, Dany buttkissing and goddamn cringy.

Unfortunately, D&D don’t have the balls to do it. Because fangirls. And because their head is stuck in Dany’s (*cough* Emilia Clark’s) ass.

How do I feel about Jon if the theory is true? I’ve come to realize that Jon seeing Daenerys for the trash she is might be my actual otp.

If only I could create art
half as beautiful as you are,
I’d blow your fucking mind.

I HAVE THE BEST HUSBAND.

All other husbands have to step up their game.
I AM PUTTING YOU ALL ON NOTICE.

Because this is what Werepenguin just gave me. He saw the commission that the amazingly-sweet and wonderfully-talented @yliseryn did for me of Allura in my wedding dress, and this idea began to form in his mind.

And this? This isn’t just Allura in my wedding dress. It’s Shiro in Werepenguin’s suit & tie. That’s OUR cake with OUR cake topper. And then Louise, being the utter sweetheart she is, added the b&w images. And then Werepenguin asked her for color versions of THOSE.

And, on top of all of this, I now have a 20x30 METAL PRINT of that top image that I can hang in our home so everyone can see it. Because this is how happy the memory of our wedding day makes him, even 8 years out. (Well, almost 8 years; he gave this to me as an early anniversary present because he couldn’t stand to sit on it any longer.)

I cried when he gave it to me. I’m crying a bit now. I married the most wonderful man and he is absolutely the best thing in my life and if there’s anything that proves that it’s that I cannot come up with the words to describe how I feel.

Katie McGrath Appreciation Week

Day Seven: Free Choice - Filmography

I just want to do good work. If it’s shot in Hungary, if it’s shot in Russia, if it’s shot in America, if it’s shot in England, you just want to do something you can stand up and say “I’m proud of it”

It was at this moment when I first read this comic that I realized the potential of Kory’s character

[Teen Titans (2003) #13]

You can't deny this about Floriana Lima

All this year people has been disrespectful to Floriana Lima. Questioning her casting process, her ethnicity, insulting her skin color and criticizing her private life (I’m not going to get into that discussion again). 

Despite of all that, SHE NEVER, EVER!!! has been rude to fans, she has never made fun of them, she is always serving the fans nicely with that characteristic smile and she cares about the LGBTQ fans, unlike other cast members who have been treated much better than her (Jeremy and Melissa). 

All this kindness and gentleness of her, after all that bullying she has experied, makes me appreciate her, admire her, protect her and love her even more. Thanks for include Floriana Lima as SANVERS 50%. We are so lucky to have her.

Why I Think Momo is Kickass and You should too

So with the emergence of the anime becoming more and more popular, of course the fan base is growing and growing, I would even say to heights like seen in Fairy Tail, Naruto, etc.

 However, with the series getting more popular, you are stuck with more….negative opinions about the characters that in my mind are sometimes just not necessary.

 Now, this blog is normally Ochako and Kacchako and I intend to mostly keep it that way but lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of negative posts towards Momo and frankly, I’m heavily displeased by this, especially since she’s one of the most well portrayed girls in the series and it’s really heartbreaking on my end to see posts that essentially dismiss her for more shallow reasons that don’t need to be here.

 I mean to start this off, are we going to simply forget that she came into UA on a recommendation and was a student that made even All Might shook when asked why Iida was the winner of the exercise

or how, even though the class didn’t know her, she was still voted to be Assistant Class President? 

 or how she was able to act calm and rational during the USJ villain fight?

 or how she still managed to get the top grade in the midterm exams and didn’t get it to her head but actually acted BENEVOTELY and helped her classmates who asked her for help?

or how it was HER plan that got Todoroki and her to win the exam that they were fighting in?

 But ya know, because of her BODY, we’re going to ignore that right? We’re going to ignore how amazing and how smart she is simply because of her body.  

I won’t lie guys, I’ve heard people complaining about her quirk and even saying how bad her quirk is designed when it’s like??? It actually makes a lot of sense why it’s like that since she does create large objects like shields, spears, A FREAKING CANON, like it makes sense for her to need to use fat call throughout her body to be able to achieve that look.

Which brings me to talk about her costume. Oh boy, this is the one that when I first entered the fandom, no one really said anything but now that the series is more popular, everyone has become experts on body proportions and quirk designs and apparently fashion design since her costume isn’t good enough for her.

I mean look at the costume design that Horikoshi put in for her and how he planned that all out for her

At some point, yes I understand, Horikoshi is a pervert, sometimes his intentions aren’t the best, I get that. But consider this, even though he had the ability to make Ochako’s and Tsuyu’s costumes completely perverted, he chose against that. He had the perfect opportunity to indulge in that yet he didn’t. What I love about Horikoshi is that he thinks about the practicality of the quirks and designs the costumes based on that as well taking into consideration the character’s personality and what they would want.

 So guys, at some point, reality check moment: Momo is comfortable with her body enough to wear a costume that she deemed necessary for the usage of her quirk. And she chose that design for that outfit and has not said a word about this entire series. She even had an opportunity to create it to be more closed and she chose not to. MOMO CHOSE HER OUTFIT AND VIEWS IT GOOD ENOUGH FOR HER HERO WORK.

 In this moment too, I would like to share what even Midnight said during Episode 34 at the very beginning.

So another reality check: The only people who are saying it’s sexual are the people who are sexualizing her to begin with. Instead of viewing it as more of a practical thing that is designed for her quirk (which involves utilizing her fat cells and creating stuff through her skin), people begin to view as sexual and are condemning her for having a revealing costume. Which, to me personally, I find ironic since tumblr is filled with campaigns of free the nipple and the stopping of sexualization of breasts and female anatomy, yet look what’s happening here. People are taking her costume and saying she’s being sexualized for choosing a design that would give her optimal openness to use her quirk.

 I mean look at how she used it in the Aizawa fight

 Having that navel cavity helped her out immensely during this fight and she was able to create the alloy material in a much faster way with having access to areas where most of her fat is stored.

Which, I also heard people commenting on how Momo’s body doesn’t make sense and how skinny she is in comparison to her boobs (which I’ve seen that in real life, it’s not uncommon), but if you see in this spread

She actually isn’t the skinniest person in the world. Keep in mind that while she does use her fat cells to make stuff, she does also consume A LOT OF FOOD TOO to keep up with the level of activity too so she does get chubby sometimes so it’s a wrong assumption to think she has this INCRDIBLY PERFECT BODY WITH NO FAT when she does! Which only makes it only more natural and real!

Honestly, her entire arc in the beginning of the manga (or at least up into this exam point) has been so powerful, so realistic, and so amazingly well done.

I mean to consider, very similarly to Bakugou, while we haven’t gotten much of her backstory, given how she behaved in Season 1, we can have a somewhat assumption that she came from a great home and was well praised for her quirk. Obviously, her quirk isn’t one with a talent, she had to work immensely for it, but she must have been placed into situations where she was elevated and praised for how powerful her quirk is (like she was put in situations where she was able to be able to use her quirk to the fullest and not have much backfired).

Even Aizawa says this during their fight

Which does imply this isn’t a constant state she’s always been in, it’s one that has been gained since the sports festival (hence why the arguments that she should be shouldn’t be self confident are wrong). 

Yet, with coming to UA and being in a hero course, after participating in the festival, well she starts to crumble and kind of doubt her abilities against the others

 Like it starts off with her not getting a high ranking on the race

 Then she mentioned the issue with the cavalry battle later on but definitely the heavy hitter for Momo was her fight with Tokoyami where she was left in shambles since she wasn’t able to make much on an impact on the fight itself (which this was amplified more in the anime than the manga itself).

Thus really bringing down her confidence. And now a lot of people screamed about how misogynist her hero training was and how demeaning it was which leads to 2 issues that some people forget about.

 1.     That there are multiple sides to being a hero. It’s not always the cookie cutter “fight villains, rescue people, rinse and repeat”. Even famous people in our society, even though their job is to act/sing/etc, they still go out and do publicity work and that’s what they do. It’s a part of being well known and using your abilities outside of the field you are in.

2.     This was all part of Momo developing. This was just another way to bring Momo down a couple more notches. It’s a bit cruel and hard but this was a way for Horikoshi to get her  out of her mindset and be exposed to something where her confidence could be lowered. Guaranteed if she was put into an actual hero training internship, she wouldn’t have been lowered as much as she did.

 Which could lead the argument that it wasn’t necessary to have any of that stuff happen to her but consider, would she have gotten in this state if she didn’t have those things happen and accumulate?

And would she have gotten her confidence back from Todoroki/Aizawa and execute an amazing plan without that encouragement from those moments?

Probably not.

 Ok this post is beginning to get way to long so I’m going to stop here before I go on and on and on about Momo. As much as Ochako is my best girl and I will forever sacrifice myself to her, even I have to admit Momo is utterly amazing and I only talked about what happened in the first 65 chapters. I didn’t even brush on how amazing she was during the invasion of the villains or how she managed to be a huge help in the rescue of Bakugou or even how kickass she was during the license exam (which she helped my princess Ochako and that pleased me so much). Momo is just more than the simple sexual object people are complaining her to be as, she’s an incredibly smart and amazing woman and Horikoshi put so much thought into her, more than what any of us could ever imagine. I am truly excited to see more of what she can do in the future and I hope she gains more fans since she truly deserves it.

 TLDR; MOMO IS AMAZING, SEND HER LOVE YALL

fake ah crew lindsay “wild card with a stupid amount of good luck” jones who somehow always manages to hit her mark without ever meaning to through odd angles and from nearly impossible positions. everyone in los santos is terrified of how incredibly accurate she is and wondering how long it took her to train to be that perfect. meanwhile geoff shakes his head and says “you’ve never practiced a day in your life, have u” and lindsay grins and goes “nope!”

lindsay who trips on the sidewalk late one night and sends a throwing a knife flying only for it to land dead center in some assassins chest, michael waving his arms madly as he helps her up, screaming “HOW! JUST HOW!? HOW ARE YOU EVEN ALIVE” while lindsay laughs her ass off. lindsay who chucks grenades so close to her crew members that magically bounce away at the right time and explode in the middle of a huge cluster of cops surrounding them and everyones like “you were trying to kill us!!” and lindsay totally bullshitting like "i knew that would happen!”

The first time Lup even hears about this whole “Magnus getting married” thing is after Story and Song, when they’re both 420 blazing it. (In her defense, things were wild, she was in an umbrella, she was trying to focus on her brother). Her shock at Magnus (their Magnus?) getting hitched becomes astonishment when Magnus launches into an emotional rant about how amazing Julia was and how good she smelled and how awesome it was to fight next to her. Lup accidentally blurts out “holy shit, dude, she sounds really cool, I’d have married her too,” (in her defense, four-twenty-blaze-it) and Magnus hugs her and cries into her shirt before whispering, “it would have been a beautiful ceremony. you could have set so many wooden things on fire together.”

marinette is the kind of person who could accidentally drink a whole glass of dirty paint water and not notice
