a not-entirely-earthling stinky boy

It still kind of blows my mind how nice Kuroo and Bokuto are. Like, when they meet Tsukishima he’s literally The Least Likable Person on Karasuno™, and he’s doing his little asshole shtick just to isolate himself at this point, and they’re just like:

“You know what we should do? Shower this bitter, unhappy little jerk in friendliness and encouragement and in the process help him rediscover his  passion for volleyball”

I wouldn’t say that just visibility is important. I would say visibility as the stars of a show is important. That says that our stories matter. We’re not here to do the taxes of the white person, or to be the chipper best friend to the white person. It’s important to see Asians in those leading roles. —Constance Wu

so what do you think of bendy for real?

❝ I appreciate how polite this is worded as compared to some others, so I’ll answer. ❞


❝ What do I think of Bendy? I  think he’s hurt. Confused. Twice he’s turned from that confident and smug attitude we’ve known him for to something broken in personal conversation.

❝ Mugman and I watched his show when we were younger– mainly him. He loved watching Bendy dance, so we would have that one episode running for hours. I payed as much attention to it as I payed attention to the grass I walked upon, then Mug would tell me all about it. He’d talk and talk. I love listening to Mug talk, and as irrational attentions it was at the time, I was jealous. Envious, even. Its too long of story to tell but at that point in our lives, Mug had hell- and I was useless. I couldn’t help him. I couldn’t cheer him up. I wasn’t enough- and that’s completely fine. Sometimes the things that make someone the most happy don’t work. It was heartbreaking to deal with. When I turned around and saw him laughing at the telly, I felt… . selfish. I kept having to remind myself relentlessly and I’ve thankfully managed to remove myself from such arrogant thinking. After seeing such a low, I fear the worst for him still to this day. ❞

❝ Watching him cry for the first time- Bendy, I mean- was surreal. I froze. I acted poorly for my own defense and stepped somewhere unnecessarily, he hid himself, conversation went on and I heard the sickening sound of a voice when saddness glosses it over into some glorified medal. He told me he’d been isolated for near or above thirty years. That’s a damned long time. At that moment, I realized something.  ❞


❝ I was scared for someone else. ❞

You and I should crash
Into each other
And if we’re lucky
Not even the world will survive
I’ll spell your name
With blood dripping from bruised knuckles
You can spell my name
With oil dripping from wrecked cars
You almost bled to death
I was always meant to burn
Let’s meet in the middle
And fuck the world

anonymous asked:

What is your favorite chanyeol hair color and style? Do you have some gifs/ pictures of said style?

I feel like I answer this at least once a month or so (I’ve answered it /here/ previously) BUT I never pass up a chance to use gifs/pictures of Chanyeol so here we go~ ^___^ xo

Warning, this is going to be a bit long. Also I feel the need to express that I do not own any of these gifs/pictures

I’m going to go a bit more in depth than usual because I’m using pictures too. So, to start, I love red hair on Chanyeol. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

Like, honestly. If he styled his hair in the ugliest way possible but dyed it red, I would still love it.

Red. Just red. 

But I do have a soft spot for whatever you’d call the color that he had for Exo Next Door.

Brown? Red? Brown-red? Red-brown? I don’t know. But I liked it.

Also orange. Bless the orange.

He looked like a giant baby pumpkin.

As for style… anything where it’s out of his face is my favorite.

Because I think it makes him look mature & adorable at the same time.

Like, just… ugh. Yas.

But I do also love when it’s all fluffy. 

LOOK AT THE FLUFF.

/Chanyeol, put your tongue away. I’m trying to talk about your hair. -___-/

Also long-haired Chanyeol is one of my top 3 favorites. Especially when it’s in the monytail thing.

Seriously. Monytail. 

& then any combo of the things I’ve mentioned. Red & up.

Long & orange

Brown-red & fluffy.

ALL THE THINGS. 

Lastly, I’d like to give a special shout out to his weird gray hair that he had for Call Me Baby because it was gorgeous~

/yes it is, Chanyeol, yes it is/

I know the video is old, but I didn’t see it until today. I have a lot to catch up on still. But I only made this gif because this moment in particular struck a chord with me… It may seem out of context, but I think it’s something a lot of people need to hear right now, either way.

Mark has been there for us, has worked so hard to be the best he can, and now it’s time for us to be there for him. For better or worse.

How much do we see of Molly this season?
More! Lots more! Loads more! Which is great, very nice. Yeah, they found a good way to get her out of the morgue and into different scenarios with the other characters, which is great.

Does Molly have any better luck with the opposite sex this season?
I think she does a little, yeah. She’s not kept herself for Sherlock. She’s not been saving herself, Clark, I’m afraid.

Teaching the older generation

I rarely post really personal stories (aside from whenever my brothers say random awesome shit, but since I only see them on the weekends now that doesn’t happen very often anymore) but I really want to share this.

Yesterday I had a really long and really amazing chat with my dad over the phone, because we keep missing each other and meet even less frequently than me and my brothers do. So we were just catching up, and somehow our conversation steered into genders and sexualities.

And let me just give you some basic facts: my dad was raised by a very homophobic father. Very old school, and by that I also mean sexist. When my grandma died, he didn’t know first thing about cooking because he’d simply never had to do it. He’d cringe whenever he saw gay people on TV, and would probably have thrown a fit if anyone ever told him about his beloved Elton John. So we never did.

(His daughter, my aunt, also didn’t come out until after he passed 2 yrs ago.)

My point is: my dad could’ve easily become one of the many assholes of his generation who kept believing in what their old man taught them growing up. The kind that use homophobic slurs without a second thought. But he didn’t. But he also didn’t break down all his prejudices at once.

While he was never as homophobic as my grandpa, he’s still made quite a few offhanded comments and pulled a few jokes that made me upset once I got old enough to understand and stand up for the LGBT community. He wasn’t very perceptive at first, but I kept at it. Till this day. I made it very clear to both him and my brothers that I would not accept their homophobic slurs and jokes – even if they meant no offense – and took every opportunity at teaching them terms and definitions and what they all actually meant.

It’s been a long time now since anyone poked this specific topic over a family dinner, so when we finally stumbled on it over the phone yesterday, I found out where my father now stands on this.

Which turns out to be right under the fucking rainbow.

Because at his own initiative, he told me how he thinks the gender spectrum is stupid, and that sexualities are silly. He said it’s sad that people are so narrow minded that they only look for love in one specific gender, when it can very well pop up in any shape and form. He said why don’t people just fall in love with people, and worry less about what the person you’re feeling a connection with got between their legs?

And as I told him about me being biromantic (which I never would’ve had the guts to tell him two years ago) he said “I’m sorry for being a white old man, but could you please tell me what that is exactly?”

So after this long and incredible conversation of total agreement, I asked him what had made him feel this way about it all, and his simple answer was: you.

Because apparently, me constantly talking about LGBT stuff and insisting that it’s just as normal as anything else, was what made my dad realize I was right. He was raised by a homophobic father, but as a grown man he learned from his queer daughter. Maybe this doesn’t seem like much to everyone reading this, but this is seriously amazing.

We don’t only have the power to teach the next generation to be more open-minded than our ancestors were, but there are also people in the older generation who are willing to learn. Even someone like my dad, who currently seems excited for me to get a girlfriend now. And possibly get a boyfriend himself, it sounds like.

That’s the story. Congratz on my old man.

i like the idea that while root was clearly portrayed as neurodivergent on the show, we never get a clear diagnosis with her as we do with shaw. (i would say that a psychologist would have a field day with her, but we all know how that one turned out…) one thing however, that i feel like is evident is that she experiences emotions in a very intense way. she spends the entire first two seasons (and probably the 20 years prior to that), simmering with anger, and whenever the lid barely containing it comes off, we see just how much she feels under those creepy empty smiles.

and it’s so rewarding that the show didn’t just write her off as a big ol’ always the villain as a result of that? instead we see her evolution in a completely organic way that never betrays her character and how she processes the world around her. we see a character with clear sociopathic behaviour (no offense root and writers, but i don’t think that that only means what you think it means) turn out to be a hero, without changing that, without ‘curing’ her of her non-neurotypical ways, without asking the audience to just chalk it all up to her sob story. (to this very day i’m still not over how when asked to explain her actions with her ~tragic childhood trauma~ by harold, instead she legit patronizes him. and that’s a reminder to the audience as well, because while losing her friend at 12 to disinterest just as much as to cruelty may have shaped her view of the world in a drastic way, it was an inciting event rather than some magical occurrence that suddenly turned her into someone prone to violence.)

which is why it’s also fascinating to see her getting paired up with shaw of all people, someone who also experiences emotions in a way that’s out of the ordinary, but in the complete opposite side of the spectrum. and to see them - for the little time that we had - accepting each other completely, understanding that even if they feel things differently, it doesn’t make it any less real to them, to share that kind of intimacy with each other, without it ever feeling disingenuous to their characters… it’s almost crazy to think about how that wasn’t always part of the plan, how the only reason we got to experience this relationship is because the actors had such an obvious chemistry in their first scene together, and it made the writers realize that there’s a potential there (- thanks for that btw).

basically what i’m saying is that i’m just really grateful to have experienced root’s journey and her character as a whole, something of a kind that i don’t expect to see anywhere near in the future, if ever again.

Okay so really out there thought I just had:

Remember when we talked about how it seemed like Papyrus was missing another song? Because Sans has multiple songs, but Papyrus doesn’t, and Papyrus’ room has absolutely no music?

Well, do you remember The Song That Might Play When You Fight Sans? It’s on the soundtrack, but not in the game’s files.

…It does say, “the song might play when you fight Sans”. And it has pieces of both Papyrus’ theme and Gaster’s theme.

What if this is actually Papyrus’ missing song?

California Apocalypse Masterpost

stea(April 29, 2038)

Intro: So there are a lot of reblogs that can be hard to keep track of, so mayordomogoliat​ and I figured that we’d just make a Masterpost for the event. There’s a lot of wordbuilding ahead, and this is under construction, so feel free to contact either of us or the transcendence-au mods with headcanons! We’ll do our best to add them ASAP.
If we missed anything, tell us. Please.
Also, if you see something not credited where it should be, let us know!

Summary: Basically, two cults got into a ‘my demon’s better than yours is’ fight and ended up allowing both Alcor and another demon, Milchiresa of Unknown Darkness, to get all corporeal and wreck some things in the battle. While aftershocks reached up into Oregon and a bit of Washington and probably down into Mexico (although not much has been discussed about that, it’s probably also a mess), California was completely wrecked; we’re talking island-chain-and-new-coastline wrecked.

The Immediate Aftermath:

+ Once Supernatural Aid and the Red Cross come through (to the more accessible islands—the furthest ones are deemed unsafe and aren’t breached) and leave, the inhabitants of the islands are left with their lives to try to pick up—some may make it back to the US, some may stay on the islands and try to venture further out, and some may just go screw it I’m starting something new here.

+ So many donations by nonprofits to get aid out as far as they can—food, clothing, shelter, clean-up crews. These tend to go to, again, the more accessible islands.

+Other donations and cuts on housing or renting hotels etc, even access to jobs, goes to those Californians who survived the disaster, whether they came back to the mainland from the islands or they were abroad/away from home at the time (see: Pines Parents).

+Roadways leading into California and winding through relevant mountain ranges are damaged, some mildly, some to the point of no return. There’s a lot of money that has to be put into the reconstruction of these pathways.

Invasion Tactics (possibility):

+Those interested in new territory, then (mostly East Asian countries, possibly New Zealand or Australia), attempt to send out survey groups or try to attempt contact with the islands. However, due to the highly-supernaturally-concentrated waters in what was the San Francisco area, those don’t end too well.

+Reasoning for East Asia’s validity in supporting/taking these islands under their wings is that “we’ve lost so many of our people and want to save the rest” (referring to the various Asian cultures prevalent in California today, in addition to any tourists/immigrants visiting or working in the region). The CA island residents call BS and turn down anybody who manages to penetrate or circumvent the SanFran area.

+In the event of any kind of invasion/takeover of islands, there would be four primary groups: The East Asias, the US, Mexico, and Independent Groups

+The East Asias (not targeting any specific countries) would try to gun for the outermost islands, as those closer to the coast are likelier to be reached first by Americans. 

+Any supply lines would have to be limited to small ships capable of navigating treacherous waters; these might possibly rendesvouz with larger supply ships on the other side of the storm break wall (see Geography).

+The US has the advantage there with supply lines, as theirs are over land, However, they may run into problems, seeing as their roadways are damaged around the California region.

+This group would focus on the islands with greatest proximity to their own lands: the new Californian coastline, around Oregon, and in Nevada. With this, however, comes some clashing with Mexico.

+Mexico also has the same advantage as the US: its supply lines are directly linked to the mainland. They go for again islands closest to them, but they do try to push more north than the US would like. 

+The independent groups, while they don’t have any land, have the most flexibility and end up kind of on top. Their focus, after all, is resisting occupation: The other nations weren’t interested in getting these people back on their feet as much as they were interested in pockets of land and new horizons.

+So the IOs (Independent Organizations) set up a sort of network of communications between the islands; while they’re not super close, they’re all pretty focused on living on their own terms. Sure, some people are fine with being occupied by other nations, but the majority remember those initial months, possibly even up to a year, before other countries started reaching out. They remember having to live on their own and they’re not giving that up after finally having started to make headway.

+These IOs are focused on raiding supply lines, focusing on their greater familiarity with the region. They’re better able to speak to the peoples of the islands, whether human or supernatural. 

+The Invasion Arc, if there ever is one, eventually ends with nations being shooed out of the islands, and each island becoming its own, mostly independent nation.

Global Significance:

+California is a hub of travel and multi-cultural communities; there will be exchange students, tourists, visiting businessmen and women, international actors and actresses, possibly diplomats and foreign singers who were in California at the time of the disaster—this means that they probably all died :D

+But seriously, while April 29 is a huge date in the US for a while, globally there might also be some celebration to a lesser degree—a day of remembrance, kind of. 

+Also, global leaders take a look at the demons who did this—attempts to summon Milchiresa of Unknown Darkness go unanswered, and all anybody gets of Alcor is an angry terror that rips apart their binding circles in .002 seconds flat and demolishes the facility where the summoning is being held—and most do their best to blacklist the info on them. More Alcor than the latter, because Milchiresa is nowhere to be found (not for a millennia or so, at least), but blacklisted info.

+What’s left of California is, due to the liability issues and monetary costs it represents, written off as a non-state. Well, the new coastline of California being the Sierra Nevada might be instated as the new California (New California or something like that), but the rest of it? Just islands, possibly not even belonging to the United States

+Also: Hawaii and coastal East Asian countries might have some tsunamis; if there was enough disturbance of the earth to submerge most of California, then they probably faced problems themselves.  Huge problems.

+The US might try to salvage tech off its shores and in the California region, but once the islands get some kind of political pull that’s stopping real fast, especially if they’re autonomous. They might continue to pull stuff off the New California shoreline, but beyond that their hands are tied, and who wants to piss off a bunch of tiny nations that have more magical power and knowledge than your entire continent?

Geography:

+We have a wonderful preliminary map (here), which outlines the bigger islands. However, the shapes won’t be exactly the same, and there will also be smaller islands dotting various areas because the demon fight literally raised and sunk chunks of the earth.

+Floating islands! Not sure about the logistics of this, but any ships that miraculously didn’t sink in the disaster could possibly become floating civilizations as survivors drifted to them and managed to climb aboard.

+Debris islands are also a distinct possibility! Areas where the seafloor is much closer to the surface may find debris caught on them, and over time the trash just piles up and up and up until you have this sort-of landmass. Humans don’t tend to inhabit these areas, though if they do, they’re likely hermits.

+There are a lot of dangerous shallows, rocks, and wreckage underneath the water that make it difficult to navigate large boats; floating islands, therefore, are typically anchored down. 

+Some parts of the old coastline were pushed up to form something of a breaker wall. These are mostly uninhabited due to the fact that they function as a storm breaker, and prove as an additional barrier to any ships coming in from the west (except, of course, through natural channels/breaks in the wall).

+Many islands, the further in time we get away from the disaster, create a system of levees to increase accessible land.

+These waters are infused with magical, supernatural, and demonic energy, so strange things and strange weather patterns happen in these parts. 

+Underwater Cities! While not inhabited by humans, they sport a host of mundane and magical/supernatural flora and fauna. Some cities aren’t as inhabited by anything due to the lingering negative emotions of the deceased.

+Eventually, these cities become like giant treasure troves, Titanics moored underwater.

Treasure Hunting:

+Centuries later, even just decades later, the LA and San Francisco areas become the grounds for the next Gold Rush.

+Explorers and Thrill-seekers cause an increase in scuba-diving and deep-sea-diving classes and certificates, and they risk their lives to come back with some underwater relic, which may be completely mundane or perhaps might be charged with supernatural energies.

+San Fran especially is the forbidden jewel of treasure hunters; being in one of the worst, most dangerous areas of the region, it’s a place not only for study but also for thrill-seekers to find their thrill, and also possibly more artifacts.

+These artifacts tend to be more…haunted, so to speak, or demonically charged than others. And more dangerous: for example, some items that have natural holes in them or had holes during the disaster that are charged with this demonic energy have the possibility of allowing a person to see the mindscape through that hole? Or to see the supernatural, if the mindscape is too much of a stretch.

Culture:

+As reported by asianpankake​, California is huge and insanely diverse, so the culture of each island is going to differ a great deal from the others.

+Culture is, after all, dependent on people and their traditional values, their upbringing, and people of different nationalities are going to have different upbringings. Some islands may have mixed-cultures (where you take traditions of different cultures and celebrate them all), some may have cultures very similar to the US’s or Mexico’s (especially the islands close to the coast), etc.

+Also to be taken into consideration is the cultures of supernatural beings, also stranded on these islands. Selkies, Dryads, Satyrs, Crab People, Gnomes, etc. Some islands will get along with these beings better than others, and that will also influence/be influenced by the underlying political thoughts of the majority of the people on that particular island.

+Each island does have its own name, as they are wont to do, but I’m going to refer to them as the California islands.

+Also possibly scavenger/pirate culture for the moving islands/boats? More should be said about this.

Politics:

+Political views change from island to island, but many closer to the new coastline are pro-nats (the fact that a demon caused all this destruction is kind of a supporting argument they use), whereas those further away tend to be more liberal.

+Remember that the islands get smaller as you get further from the coast: As asianpankake​ said, “The Bay Area is probably the most wrecked, and a huge percentage of the liberal, supernatural-friendly population is lost.

+Because of the highly diverse and disparate communities, the residents might have friendly relations and trade between islands, but it’s unlikely that they’re never really unified. They might eventually enter an agreement like the European Union, but that’s a pretty heavy might that depends on the situations this new region finds itself in.

+The tentative name for this possible governmental body is ‘Californian Island Federation.’

Magic:

+Magic, due to an early lack of electricity/oil/fuel/coal/other-energy, quickly becomes the preferred energy of choice. You can create lights with it, you can heat things, you can cool things. You can use it to tie your makeshift house-tent together (though you’ll need to find a more permanent solution before long), you can use it to find food and drinking water, etc.

+Because it’s used so often, magic quickly becomes a desired skill, and a skill that is practiced to extents not before reached in the Post-Transcendence age.

+Basically magic becomes the export skill/trade/etc of most of the islands in the California region.

+ theorykids​ suggested that a few generations after the disaster is when the islands become really well known for their magic: sales of magical supplies, charms, and talismans reaches an all-time high, their universities are the best to go to for magic degrees and especially for magic-education degrees, their constant improvement of the MagiOrb and related magitech (see Technology) is a selling point, etc.

+It’s mentioned in the TAU blog that one of Acacia’s kids is the guy who really, really manages to meld tech and magic together: headcanon that he went to undergrad or grad school at one of the Universities in the California region.

+While you have a lot of pro-nats on these islands, these pro-nats sure change their mind about using magic pretty quickly. And again, some will take to magic with less prodding than others; not every pro-nat person is going to have the exact same beliefs.

+Same goes with anti-magic societies: while they run rampant all over the continental US, the anti-magic societies of the islands of California don’t do too well. They kind of fizzle out and die, and Magic Cults/Societies take their places with a vengeance.

+One of these societies, the Reclaimant Circle, emerges as the (social-not-magic) societies on the islands start to come together and discuss the issue of land. They’re dedicated to raising as much land as they can, and can only really move maybe a couple square feet at a time; raising the earth takes a lot of energy, and this probably in the beginning causes minor earthquakes itself.

+These earthquakes, while they might be devastating in the early years, also release a ton of easily manipulated elemental magic, and it’s why the Reclaimant Circle still exists centuries later; because no matter what, there’ll be something good coming out of shifting the earth

Technology:

+This is really mayordomogoliat​ ‘s area of expertise, so I’m just compiling what I know! You may want to read (this) and (this) before continuing onto this section.

+ According to asianpankake​, the technology industry of CA is located all over the state but is centered around the Bay Area (Silicon Valley) or LA, aka disaster zones. This means that most tech-tech has gone underwater, even the most experimental of magic-tech melds, such as the possibility of binding magic to metals.

+So MagiOrb/Magiorb/Magicore (I like capitalizing things): Basically, from word of god (mayordomogoliat), it is a “new school of magic more readily available to the general populace based on a sphere covered in geometric shapes that mimicked the Earth’s leylines and worked by programming spells into the machine via computer and powering it with some magical type of battery.

+The MagiOrb 1.0 was opensource so tons of people have it/have knowledge on how to make it, so probably the MagiOrb 1.0 becomes the new, better way to do magic-tech when you don’t necessarily have access to all the ritualistic ingredients that the analogue way requires.

+Basically the MagiOrb 1.0 becomes super insanely popular across the islands, even if it is a bit bulky and non-mobile. In fact, the development of the MagiOrb is a bit different for each of the islands, taking into consideration different population demographics/dynamics and access to resources. 

+ESPECIALLY as people figure out how to run laptops on magical energy. It kind of screws with the monitor and shows funny colors, but if you’re just trying to power a MagiOrb through the laptop, then what does color matter?

+However, the creator of the MagiOrb (Mercury/Iris) dies in the disaster, and with them a lot of awesome plans and everything.

+But here’s the thing: somebody survived, some kid with a fascination with the MagiOrb and MagiTech, some curious old geezer with a bit too much time on his hands and a streak of luck to boot, several somebodies on different islands, and their innovative minds managed to pull something out of the MagiOrb 1.0s and create something great with it.

+Now there were already MagiOrb 2.0 prototypes floating around, which was meant to be more portable version, more streamlined: the commercial version, so to speak. More power, easily configured, probably more memory, easy to replace magical battery, etc. Primarily, they were a means to earn the creator a bit of cash money.

+Very few of these existed in the first place, so they’re less than rare after the disaster. But the islands that have them? They’re leaps and bounds ahead of the rest for a while, especially if they have one of those innovative souls buggering with them. 

+Within decades, the MagiOrb 2.0 prototypes have  been altered and improved, and their tinkerers left with a greater understanding of the MagiTech behind them. This information was applied to other projects, and the MagiTech line was widened in scope.

+Also, magical batteries: during the disaster, they’re pretty much recharged beyond anything anybody could have thought them to withstand, and some that are close enough are bound together and supercharged, collectively forming a giant energy core of magical energy, forming the center of a civilization for at least one of the islands.

+They never really get back to mundane tech. Maybe some, sure (esp. on college campuses), but it’s not as big a thing. More and more the way these islands are going is a fusion of magic and technology.

Demon Summoning:

+For the first century or so, most demons don’t even answer summoning calls from this region, or they nope the hell out of there once they figure out that they’re in the California region.

+Eventually, though, demons start to answer calls, especially the lower-ranked demons who can literally absorb strength just by being in the energy-infused air.

+This makes it somewhat easier to summon demons, but is a double edged sword; any demon you do summon will grow stronger the longer you negotiate.

Flora/Fauna:

+Crab People populate the islands, some (debris islands?) more than others.

+Coral Reefs and the like slowly start to grow, especially as these waters have a radical range of elevation within the same ten square miles.
