Donghyuk is the member who cares the most for ikonics, he did dongparazzi only to make us happy and show us privat selfies, pics and polaroids of the members that we would probably never have seen without him. He is the one with the brightest smile and the warmest heart who dressed up as krunk so many times, sweating like crazy but he was still happy for us and was wearing that costume with a huge smile on his face. Donghyuk is the one that gives all his fans and members the feeling to be loved. Even tho he always smiles and tries to make everyone happy, he seems to be lonely. He lost his dad at a young age and tried to do his best to fit in the Korean beauty standards, he even said he lost weight for the fans so he can show US a better image of himself. But he doesn’t realize how much he already did and does for us just by existing. He always gives his 100%. Be it singing, dancing or just being a really good friend to everyone. He is the one in iKON who does aegyo to bright up our day and the one who visits Haru on his days off even tho they are so busy just because he loves children and wants to see them happy. I want Donghyuk to know that even if he can’t see it sometimes, he is one of the most wonderful, kindest and beautiful people I’ve ever seen. I love you dongdong and I hope you’ll always be healthy and happy and that your smile will never fade away and warm us whenever we feel lonely. And I hope that someday we can give you back what you gave to so many of us 🙏🏼💕

Unexpected Hate

Where’s Britt and Joe?

Why are you avoiding Britt?

I heard that she was jealous of Joe and Britt.

Worried that Britt’s replacing you?

Y/N frowned as she continued to scroll through the comments on her recent vlog. It seemed as if everyone simply wanted to talk about Britt, or the lack of Britt in her video, along with the lack of Joe.

She had a feeling there would be some mention of the American girl because Joe had mentioned her visit in his most recent livestream, and he was clearly excited for his friend to come visit. And Y/N was excited for him, because she knew how much he was looking forward to showing her around London, and he did have some pretty amazing things planned.

But she never expected to receive hate because of Britt.

It seemed that no matter where Y/N looked though, whether it be in the comment section on YouTube or Instagram, or even mentions on Twitter, they all involved her and Britt and their “hate” for each other. Which didn’t even exist.

Yes, it was true that Y/N was not seen in any vlogs with Joe and Britt, and they weren’t in hers either, but it had nothing to do with her hating Britt, it was simply that she was busy. And unfortunately her schedule did not allow her much time to hang out with the two.

The only time Y/N really saw Joe and Britt was when she walked through the door at the end of the night, waving a hello before falling into bed exhausted, and then up in the morning and out the door before they had even woke.

Y/N actually felt bad, because she had been wanting to get to know Britt, since her and Joe were so close, and Joe was important to Y/N, had been for the better part of two years that they had been dating, but she just didn’t have time to hang out. Even day was filled with meetings and projects, there was barely any time to herself right now.

But Y/N knew that something had to be done, and soon. Because her fans were sending hate towards people that didn’t deserve it in any way.


“Hey, love.” Joe smiled when he and Britt walked through the door later that night and he saw Y/N sitting on the couch.

“Hi.” She smiled back, tilting her head back as he walked over so he could drop a kiss on her lips. “How was your day?”

“London is magical.” Britt sighed, sinking into the couch.

“Especially around Christmas. You chose a wonderful time.” Y/N told her, closing the laptop on her lap and turning to face the two. “But I actually need to talk to you.”

“Me?” Britt asked, blinking over at her, while Joe sent her a confused look.

“Yeah. I want to make a video with you. Just a short little one, explaining to everyone that I don’t hate you.”

“They think you hate her?” Joe asked, interrupting.

“Well, I’m not in any of your vlogs, and you two haven’t been in mine-“

“Because you’ve been busy.”

“I know that, Joe. And you both know that. But my fans think I’ve been avoiding her since she got here. And that I must hate her or something. So what I want to do is explain the situation. If you’re alright with that, Britt.” Y/N finished, looking over at the American.

“Of course! No reason for people to think we hate each other, all because of Joseph.”

“I know, he’s really not worth it.”

“Agreed.”

“Oi!” Both girls started laughing as Joe tried to protest.

“Don’t worry, babe. You’re totally worth it.” Y/N said, winking over at Britt who began to laugh again.

“You both suck.” Joe grumbled, standing from the couch and making his way over to the kitchen.

“When did you want to make it?” Britt asked Y/N, shifting over on the couch to be closer.

“Hmm, maybe later. After dinner? This is the first night I’ve actually had off, and I just want to hang out with you two.”

“Sounds good to me.”

“Thanks, for doing this.”

“No problem. Now, Joe. You promised me a delicious meal!” Britt hoped off the couch and made her way towards Joe, and Y/N sat back on the couch laughing as the two interacted.


And later, they did make the video. All three of them explaining the situation, with the two girls teasing Joe.

Y/N smiled as she edited it after, knowing it would put everyone at ease. Because after spending even a few hours with Britt, Y/N knew that the two would become fast friends. which both pleased and terrified Joe.

And that just made the friendship even better.

HI SUPERNATURAL, YES I HAVE A QUESTION

WHAT THE HELL IS THE CAMP CHITAQUA PHOTO FROM 5x04 ‘THE END’

DOING IN JOHN’S JOURNAL IN 12x02 ‘MAMMA MIA’

DOES THIS ACTUALLY MEAN SOMETHING? LIKE IS THERE A REALITY WHERE THIS VERSION OF 2014 EXISTS? HOW IS THIS PHOTO EVEN TANGIBLE THAT DEAN MANAGED TO BRING IT BACK HOME?

OR DID YOU GUYS GET LAZY WITH THE PHOTOSHOP AND STORYTELLING AGAIN AND THOUGHT YOU COULD GET AWAY WITH REUSING A PHOTO YOU ASSUMED WE WOULDN’T REMEMBER

I MEAN, IF THIS IS YOUR WAY OF SUPPOSEDLY SHOWING MARY THE WAY BOBBY LIVED, YOU REALLY FUCKED UP THAT PART ABOUT CAS AND HIS 2014 SCRUFF AND ALSO THE PART WHERE IT’S ACTUALLY FROM A TIMELINE THAT SUPPOSEDLY NEVER EXISTED

SO WHICH IS IT, SUPERNATURAL? HMMM?

anonymous asked:

hi i read your keith post and what do you mean by slav introducing the series to "multi-universe theory" in regards to keith?

Considering this series is done by the people who did AtLA and Korra, nothing really should be taken super lightly. Like, okay, yes it is still a “kid’s show”, but honestly they’re really more “teenage”. Just from some of way the characters work, with certain themes, how stuff happens and how it’s handled. I’m totally guilty for slapping the name on it as being a kid’s show (and not because it’s animated even though that stigma still exists), but it’s more in retaliation with how the fandom works and gets overexcited with certain parts of VLD. 

But, anyway, aside from that, AtLA and Korra were done cleverly. At lot of stuff was hinted towards and revealed for reasons. We have little cues here and there from the first episode alone of the series (S2E3 “Blade of Marmora is with you” - S1E1 Keith uses his Marmoran blade to cut Shiro’s restraints) to just casually dropping potential stuff. 

Slav is a genius and necessary for the teludav creation, we know, because he found a way to fold parts of the universe, basically. Also, whilst he talks about “in this reality…” a lot, it does hold a lot of truth. Shiro is surprised when he brings up the step on a crack and break your mother’s back thing, because it is a human expression (and humanity has never been able to get very far with space exploration as it took them months to get to Kerberos according to Pidge). Shiro tries to approach how Slav knew it, and then Slav goes on about how it effects reality. And it just snowballs from there until Shiro gets annoyed.

Notably with Slav it’s always about “this” reality, and his dialogue does kind of suggest towards other realities (where he could even swim). Anyway, so Slav, through his irritating Shiro, actually brought in the potential of other realities. Other universes - and multiverse is a thing that does appear in previous titles of the Voltron series as well as the Robotech series (both of which had a crossover event together). It’s not a new concept to Voltron as a whole, but new to VLD. Not impossible to believe either considering space, wormholes, giants robots and the like exist.

Also, just another thing thrown in, but the figures of the lions came with little cards. The Black Lion had teleportation listed as a skill. We had already seen it several times especially towards the end of the second season when Shiro manages to regain the bayard. The Lion also allows appearances onto the astral plane and even saving it’s paladin by launching them to who knows where. 

And how do I pull this all into Keith? Just his vision of being in the shack with his dad. Like they insist that he was abandoned and orphaned, then throw in this. His vision with his ‘father’ is that when he looks outside, the Galra are storming. At first I just assumed it was the desert, but then I kind of got thinking that it could be anywhere. Absolutely anywhere in the universe where the Galra raged upon. Even from the beginning, such as a place like Altea. 

There have been some pretty good posts about Keith’s father and their interaction, and how it wasn’t a very pleasant interaction all up. Red was also there, and the constant talk of “your mum will be here soon”. Also in regards to his father’s appearance and etc. 

So, yeah, that’s basically the angle I’m coming from.

Alice told me what she’d seen of Carlisle and his family. I could hardly believe that such an existence was possible. But Alice made me optimistic. So we went to find them.”

“Scared the hell out of them, too.” Edward said, rolling his eyes at Jasper before turning to me to explain. “Emmett and I were away hunting. Jasper shows up covered in battle scars, towing this little freak.” He nudged Alice playfully— “who greets them all by name, knows everything about them, and want to know which room she can move into. When I came home, all my things were in the garage.

—  I forget how sassy Edward is in the books.

aniseandspearmint  asked:

(okay, page glitched mid send so I don't know if this sent before) How about a HP fandom fusion, where Tsuna got a letter to attend the local magic school/after school program in his area (maybe some of his friends/future guardians also attend like Hana, Kyoko, or Hibari?)? All the mafia stuff still exists, and Reborn eventually shows up, but he really wasn't expecting a baby magic user?

HP/KHR mixes either go in a good or bad category, and I usually have to force myself to read them. Hell I almost didn’t read reighost/araceil’s HP/KHR fusion, and even once I did I was leery of others. I’m still fucking leery of them.

With the case of HP/KHR, that’s a lot of stuff to mix together. I have all seven books, but I honestly haven’t read them since they came out - or in the sixth and seven books case, barely touched them - and mostly tend to read HP fics by other people.

I mean, I could try to write something just to see if I’d be any good at it, buuuut HP/KHR fusions is one of those things I have to be in a very specific mood for, otherwise you mostly just get talk.

But I mean, if I were to give this idea a go, it would probably stick around in the vicinity of Japan, and wouldn’t go into super worldbuilding detail about any of the magic stuff. Also, wands would probably be left in the dust in favor of a more ‘whatever weapon you resonate best with’ approach. 

Either that, or I’d have to completely build it from the ground up where magic and Flames in certain parts of the world are so intertwined that there’s barely any distinction. Japan would probably be one of those heavily mixed areas, where Nana can weave protective wards simply by stirring that morning’s pot of rice counter-clockwise instead of clockwise, students carve their own magical runes in an effort to cheat at sports or become smarter, and teachers catch them and end up scolding them for reckless behavior. The girls laugh and paint their nails with colors that will attract certain species of magical birds or encourage flowers to grow in their hair to attract the boy they like.

So basically, less HP magic and more household magic with a touch of nature magic.

Today’s crew profile is with our incredible post production supervisor, Amy Reynolds! 

  • When did you become interested in animation and why?

I became interested in animation as more than a passive viewer once I got my first job working with animators and realized how cool it was. I was fascinated by everything pretty quickly. 

  • What was your first job in animation?

My first animation job was an Office Coordinator for an animated show that lasted about 15 seconds… No one ever saw it really, it was called Game Over. It was on UPN, a network which doesn’t even exist anymore. 

  • If you could befriend one animated character, who would it be and why?

Piglet from Winnie the Pooh. That guy needs a hug and someone to help him plan things. 

  •  What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

No matter what the job is, be the best at it you can be- hired to sweep floors? Be the smartest and best floor sweeper they’ve ever had. 

  • If you had to eat one kind of food every day for the rest of your life, what would you pick?

Pizza. The good kind. Not the totally lame kind. Although, really, it’s pizza, so I’d eat it anyway. 

anonymous asked:

"maybe we wouldn’t need to make blogs specifically for anonymous submissions and criticism if your friends and followers didn’t harass people for critiquing her art" Well whose fault is that? Hers or her fans? You don't see people telling Rebecca Sugar to jump off a cliff because the SU fandom is horrible. Don't blame the creator for the fandom's wrongdoings.

No, to a degree you cannot blame the creator for the following for how they act. The issue with Vivienne is that she not only completely ignores this entire aspect of her following, she blatantly denies that it exists whenever it gets mentioned to her. You give me the SU fandom as an example, but the SU crew did make a statement that the way their fans are acting is unacceptable on multiple occasions. Vivienne refuses to address the bad behavior her following is showing more and more, and completely denies that it even happens. That’s the difference. Her peers have also harassed people that try to criticize her, and that is a problem that she can handle. We’ve seen callout posts and angry messages from her friends Faustisse and Gooseworx, but she does nothing to deter that kind of action among her peers, and likely even encourages it in private. We have seen a couple screencaps that we’re not publishing but they do imply such activity behind what is publicly posted. 

We created this blog as a safe haven for people wanting to share their opinions, and add our own additional commentary to “spruce it up” and make it acceptable as a professionally formatted form of criticism because the moderators here have the experience for that. Even if it isn’t her fault that her followers harass people, we aren’t pointing fault at anybody. We’re saying that our blog exists because regardless of who is or isn’t at fault, people are getting harassed and mistreated for speaking up, so we offer them an anonymous outlet. Is that so wrong? 

- Beth

Ok, but like

Hawkdevil high school AU where neither of them knows the other exists until they show up for finals.
Clint is like, the fuck is this kid that came twenty minutes late, only filled half the reference notecard, finished twenty-five minutes early, can’t even fucking see, and somehow got 105%.
And Matt’s like, that… That guy is wearing his pajama pants, but like, just his pajama pants. How did they let him in like that?

I love how in the God Eater anime, the first two episodes try so hard to make Eric into a cool character.  The fact he even SURVIVED to episode 2 was astounding, and when they finally show his death…

…it looked pretty freaking epic.

It kills me because the sole reason he exists in the game is to establish that everyone who goes on missions with Soma dies. 

He flips his hair about 5 times and dies. Just like that.  Not only that, but he gets killed by an ogretail.  For people who haven’t played the game, an ogretail is the equivalent of a lv. 3 Pidgey in Pokemon. 

For reference, there is a challenge mission that only unlocks once you have beaten the entire game.  All the mission in challenge are extremely difficult, with the enemies dealing much more damage (and seemingly taking about 5x the normal beating to kill).

Looks like a joke, right?  Surely, there’s something more than just an ogretail…

…except there’s not.  It is seriously just an ogretail.  Well, since it IS a challenge mission, at least it should put up SOME sort of a fight.

Except it doesn’t.  29 seconds on a challenge mode mission. 

I guess what I’m getting at here is that it is a little ridiculous in the anime that they tried so hard to make Eric look all epic when the game it is based off of views him as a big freaking joke. 

(Even his audio tracks are a joke.  Eric the Magnificent?  Really?)

anonymous asked:

Hiya! real talk: for me the biggest mystery about destiel is how the antis keep saying it is not a real thing on the show but it's still one of the biggest ships to ever exist? I don't mind at all when others don't ship my ship but to say it isn't there? do you have an explanation why the ship became so big and so many fans individually shipped it, why would they if there is nothing there at all??

Hey! :) 

‘Why did this thing become such a huge thing, when the anti people keep claiming that it’s not even a thing at all on the show?’

Or the everlasting question: Is Destiel even a thing, or is a large part of the fandom just making the thing up? Which is a good question, but the answer is fairly simple when you look at the bigger picture. :p

Did one person at the beginning of the fandom just go “ah yes, Dean and Castiel, that is the future, you all should ship them, and it shall be one of the most talked about ships on the internet, because I’m starting the hype”. And then we all just followed like blind sheep and made it happen. 

Yeah, no. That’s not quite how it works, because it’s not going to grow that big (or last that long) when there isn’t actual material to back it up. 

How did it get so big? If it isn’t there? Or is it there? Story time! I’m actually going to quote myself here because typing the same thing twice makes no sense, and is quite frankly exhausting. 

From your ask I assume that you watch Supernatural, but let’s say you have a friend who doesn’t watch it. Said friend doesn’t know what the show is about, and doesn’t know anything about any of the characters in it.

Now you tell aforementioned friend about the show as it ACTUALLY is, only altering one little detail. So you tell them:

‘There’s this TV show that I like. In this show there is this young man named Dean, who makes a deal with a demon to save his little brother’s life, and ends up in hell because of it. Eventually, Dean gets rescued by the angel Cassandra. The reason Cassandra raised Dean from perdition is because God commanded it, seeing as the angels on this show don’t have any emotions whatsoever, don’t feel like humans do, and are merely programmed to follow the orders of the Heavenly host.

But the moment Dean and Cassandra first meet, all of this suddenly changes. Cassandra soon starts to feel, and starts caring about Dean. Caring turns into caring deeply, and ends in Cassandra turning her back on Heaven, rebelling, and even killing some of her own brothers and sisters in the process, then telling Dean that she did all of it for him.

Dean, who never had faith in God, or Heaven, or angels, still doesn’t have faith in any of that, but he now does have faith in this one angel, Cassandra. He trusts Cassandra, he prays to Cassandra (even though praying is begging in Dean’s book, and he hates that), and as the show moves on Cassandra grows away from Heaven, and closer to Dean.

Cassandra and Dean are separated on several occasions, and the odds are always against them, but even when Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory try to keep them apart, they always find their way back to each other. They both make bad decisions, mistakes, and there are cases of betrayal, but in the end they always forgive and forget, because they simply can’t stay away from one another.

Several times, Cassandra has died. Whenever Dean thinks he’s lost her, Dean gets depressed, has endless nightmares about losing her, even hallucinates seeing her, and turns to alcohol in order to keep going on with his life. They’re pretty much miserable without each other, as it shows on the actual show.
The bond they have is strong enough to break through any kind of mind control.

Every single one of their friends/enemies know that Cassandra and Dean are each other’s weakness, and use it against them at times. Long story short: Cassandra is willing to give up everything, even her wings, only for Dean, and we’ve reached a point in the show where Dean is in a position where he has to trust Cassandra with his life, and he easily does so.

As a side note: It’s not uncommon for Dean to tell Cassandra that he needs her to be with him, and it’s not uncommon for Cassandra to watch Dean sleep.’

Interesting, isn’t it? Do you hear what it sounds like when you summarize the actual story of Dean and Castiel as it is, even without changing anything or deliberately making it sound more romantic?

Now you go ahead and ask your friend what kind of story this is, and what kind of relationship they think that Dean and Cassandra have. I can guarantee you that there is a 90% chance that your friend will tell you: “DOH, they’re in love with each other, it’s a story about star crossed lovers, and that angel is so whipped.”

Then tell your friend that you lied. Tell them that you changed one tiny aspect, even though the rest of what you told them is true to what happened on the show. Tell them that the angel is a male named Castiel, not a female named Cassandra.

That’s the only thing you changed. And depending on your friend, there are different kinds of reactions you could get to this one, but the fact remains; It is what it is.

And that is all there is to it. 

Originally, this was a reply that I gave to someone who asked about queerbaiting and what it is, and how it works. I told them; one of the biggest red flags is when a story between two characters of the same gender, would be seen as unequivocally romantic to most of the audience if one of the two were to be replaced with someone of the opposite gender. When you actually write it out, it’s easy to see whether or not this applies to your ship.

Sadly, that is the case with Destiel. It’s one of the most obvious cases ever when it comes to this… you think it is a love story, because it is one. And that is what people are looking for when watching a show; love stories or relationships that are original and interesting. This applies to Destiel to such a degree that even straight people (who aren’t necessarily looking for representation) picked up on it because it so blatantly is a love story, and people in general enjoy those.

And because Destiel clearly fits the profile, everyone who isn’t necessarily blinded by their heteronormativity goggles (or by irrational hate), will at least see that something (a lot) is there. 

That is why the ship attracts so many fans. That’s why it has been the most reblogged ship for years in a row, why it has tons of fanfiction, fanart, and a giant fanbase.

Of course it helps that he actors have great chemistry, and even won an award for that. Can’t sell a story when the actors don’t back it up, after all. 

But long story short; you are watching a forbidden love story, about two fictional characters that fell in love even though their writers probably didn’t want them to. 

And this is why it is a thing, a big thing. The writers and showrunners are the ones who decide which stories they want to tell, but in the end, the fans will decide which stories matter most to them and thus will live on for years and years after a show ends. The fact that so many of them picked this story, says it all.

Even if it never goes canon, it doesn’t get more canon than this, because aside from a missing kiss, their journey easily rivals every love story every told. And that’s what made it big.

Kishimoto wants narusasu to exist?

So my friend and I were discussing the canon ending a few days back and we realized that no matter how much we try to dispute it, the relationship between Naruto and Sasuke actually exists and Kishimoto wants it to exist.

You see, when the show started, it was about bonds and how much different bonds Naruto can build with different people. And it was ALWAYS Naruto’s bonds that we were looking at. Bonds of friends, rivals, nemeses, teachers, students, love, and even eventually, parents. He had those bonds with so many different people. But for Sasuke, it was one bond that represented all of that, one person. Naruto was his rival, enemy, brother (according to Itachi), friend, and most definitely, he loved him. Regardless of how he loved him, he did love him. Naruto is the single definition of everything in Sasuke’s life, and I don’t think even Naruto realizes that. For Sasuke, when all was gone, Naruto remained. He never cared for any other bond except Naruto’s because none other mattered. Naruto was all and for a long time he tried resisting. But at the end, the truth comes out.

So I honestly believe that Kishimoto wanted Naruto and Sasuke to have a very deep and very pure connection. The two didn’t have to meddle in the definition of what their relationship was. Kishimoto didn’t have to show us any “act” that defines their current bond. He expected us, after taking a fifteen year journey to understand that those two are far more than just two people crossing roads, they were soul-mates. Not soul-mates by creation, but soul-mates by circumstance. Sasuke had nothing without Naruto, and Naruto would throw away everything for Sasuke. And all their decisions could only be explained by that connection.

The dark man who would throw away his dark past for his bright friend.

The bright man who would throw away his bright present for his dark friend.

They would both do it in a heart-beat because they’re irreplaceable for each other. :’)
