how do you logic but i love you anyway

Roman’s Birthday

Prinxiety (and bonus logicality if you want)

//


“Come on, Roman. Just a few more steps.” Princey’s birthday was always a spectacular event so when Morality had barged into his room, put a blindfold on him and pushed him through the corridor, he didn’t object. He had been looking forward to it, especially after hearing part of a conversation between Logan and Morality. They were contemplating having a clown but after much discussion, they rejected the idea. Turns out Anxiety’s scared of clowns. Well, add that to the list.


After almost falling down a flight of stairs, the blindfold was ripped from Roman’s face to reveal balloons, presents and… was that a kareoke machine? He was so excited, he didn’t know where to begin. “Do you want to do presents first?” Patton asked, beaming. Roman nodded, sitting on the sofa and picking up the first present.



Pushing the wrapping paper further into the bag, Princey began to open the final present. He’d had a drawing, a cuddly dragon and a few photos from Patton and a Spanish dictionary and a new sash from Logan (seeing as the dragon-witch had ripped a large hole in his current one). The final gift was from Anxiety which Roman found surprising, as they never seemed to see eye to eye. The tag on the gift read, ‘Happy Birthday Sir Sings-A-Lot, From Verge’


Roman ripped the purple paper of the tube-shaped present, revealing a poster. “It’s exactly the same as the one in my room. You know, the one you tried to steal three times?” Prince unraveled the large poster, grinning from ear to ear. Virgil rolled his eyes, despite the smirk that was prominent on his face.



“Kareoke! Kareoke!” Roman cheered at Virgil, trying to get him to put his can of Pepsi down and pick up the microphone. He didn’t. “No, Roman.”


“Come on, Virgil. It’ll be fun.”


“No.”


“Please? It’s my birthday.”


“I know. And no.”


Roman kept trying, sounding more desperate and angry with each attempt. Anx was just repeating “No” like a rythm, becoming aggitated and annoyed until he was shouting it over Roman’s pleas. Patton and Logan shared a glance, both escaping to the kitchen from the inevitable argument that broke out. It lasted an hour.


“No, Princey. I am not singing and that’s final. I am not going to embarrass myself in front of everyone for your enjoyment.” Princey couldn’t find an adequate response through his temper, which quickly cooled.


The disappointed Prince slowly trudged up the stairs to Thomas’s room. He hadn’t got the energy to 'sink down’ so he lay on his back on the bed, staring at the ceiling and thinking about his birthday. Eventually, somehow, his attention turned to Virgil.


Virgil, who was the very bane of his existence. Who couldn’t do one thing for him even on his special day. Who didn’t care about anyone, not even Thomas. Who always smirked when he knew he had won. Who flirted with him just to see him blush. Who was always messy. Who… Who shouldn’t have to do something he doesn’t want to do just because it was Prince’s birthday.


He sighed, sitting up. He was going to apologise. For the sake of being the better man. Apologise. To Anxiety.


He could picture the smirk on the emo’s face.


He hesitantly walked back downstairs, expecting an argument or, even worse, silence. He got neither of those. Instead, he got singing. Anxiety singing. Anxiety singing a song from Hercules. With Patton singing backup, excitedly bouncing around as Anxiety sheepishly sang through the easily recognisable lyrics.

“If there’s a prize for rotten judgement,

I guess I’ve already won that

No man is worth the aggravation

That’s ancient history, been there, done that

(Who d'you think you’re kidding

He’s the earth and heaven to you

Try to keep it hidden,

Honey we can see right through you

Girl you can’t conceal it

We know how you’re feeling

Who you’re thinking of)

No chance no way I won’t say it, no no

(You swoon you sigh why deny it oh oh)

It’s too cliche I won’t say I’m in love

I thought my heart had learned its lesson

It feels so good when you start out

My head is screaming "Get a grip girl

Unless you’re dying to cry your heart out

(Girl you can’t deny it

Who you are is how you’re feeling

Baby we’re not buying

Hon we saw you hit the ceiling

Face it like a grown-up

When you gonna own up that you got got got it bad)

No chance no way I won’t say it, no no

(Give up, give in, check the grin you’re in love)

This scene won’t play I won’t say I’m in love

(We’ll do it until you admit you’re in love)

You’re way off base I won’t say it

Get off my case I won’t say it

(Girl don’t be proud it’s okay you’re in love)

At least out loud I won’t say I’m in love”


Roman listened as the angelic voice made its way up the stairs and to the Royal’s ears. He silently stood near the bottom of the stairs, entranced.


Even with Patton’s excited voice going a little bit faster than the song, Roman couldn’t deny that they sang together in harmony. Well, it was Thomas singing with Thomas. He was so entranced, however, that he managed to miss the last step, falling (literally head over heels) and hitting the floor with a loud THUD. Virgil dropped the microphone at the sight and fled to the kitchen. Prince followed.


Anx leant against the fridge, slowly retrieving another can of Pepsi. “Why?” Prince asked from the doorway, getting his attention.


“Why what?” The other asked, closing the fridge door.


“Why that song?”


“It was the next in the playlist.”


“I checked through the playlist. It really wasn’t.”


“I just…I don’t…Shut up.” The blush was visible even through the thick foundation.


“You know, if you wanted to say something, you could just say it. You don’t have to hide it behind a song.” Roman got closer to Virgil, the sincere tone evident in his voice.


Anx stayed quiet, shaking his head slightly.


“C'mon”

Roman nodded towards the doorway and they both exited the room. Straight into Patton scream-singing the spongebob Campfire Song Song and Logan covering his ears with cushions, his eye twitching slightly. Stifling giggles, they both sat down to comfort Logan.



BONUS:


“So, I think it’s time for bed.” Morality dragged Anxiety with him as he sank down, leaving the 'emo nightmare’ in his own room and reappearing in Thomas’s living room to make sure the others got to bed. After forcing Roman to sink down, he turned to Logan. Logan could see the tired state the father figure was in so decided to pitch in. “You take the night off. I will clean up down here.” Patton muttered a 'thanks’ and sank down, yawning as he went.


Logan cleaned up the plates and cups and turned his attention to the kareoke machine. Picking up the microphone and taking a quick look around the room, he turned the machine on, planning to attempt the first song to come on. He hadn’t had a chance to give it a go between Morality’s constant hyperactiveness due to the large amount of sugar he had consumed and the bickering between the other two. A soft tune began to play. The song chosen seemed ironic to Logic, seeing as he was near enough incapable of understanding strong emotion. He started anyway.


“If I could begin to be

Half of what you think of me

I could do about anything

I could even learn how to love

When I see the way you act

Wondering when I’m coming back

I could do about anything

I could even learn how to love like you

Love like you

I always thought I might be bad

Now I’m sure that it’s true

'Cause I think you’re so good

And I’m nothing like you

Look at you go

I just adore you

I wish that I knew

What makes you think I’m so special

If I could begin to do

Something that does right by you

I would do about anything

I would even learn how to love

When I see the way you look

Shaken by how long it took

I could do about anything

I could even learn how to love like you

Love like you”


Patton picked his discarded cardigan (discardigan?) off the chair and silently sank down again, a smile and blush on his face as he turned the camera off.

Casual Summer Reading : What you say, what they see.

A Handbook on Destiheller History, Psychology and Behavior.

Note: This isn’t tagged Destiel so that the nice cool Destiel shippers can avoid this. If you are wandering in the anti tags, you ain’t cool.

JENSEN: Destiel? No, Meh.

Destihellers: Ohk .. Not meaning to be an asshole but Jensen is homophobic and it could be because just like Dean, his dad is homophobic too.Evidence? Here is some meta:Art imitates life.

Someone in SPN crew: Destiel? Where?

Destihellers: Ok, I respect everyone’s opinions but I’d like to say how wrong you are, it is there right in front of you.How can’t you see it? Your show queerbaits all the time. You are WRONG. You need to delete. You don’t understand your own shoe please get off twitter. 

Samantha Smith: Destiel? Ship? What? NO, thanks.

Destihellers: I don’t mean to be rude and this might seem harsh but you are really irrelevant, Samantha. You might have played Mary Winchester but you don’t understand the show and you aren’t even a part of it anymore so please, either ship and ship destiel or just don’t express your opinion. Because it is your opinion and we don’t agree with it and WE are SPNFamily and a part of the show, what you say and think is worthless.

Samantha Smith: Returns to the show.

Destihellers: ……. Well, I can’t wait to see Mary ignore her son Sam, be a mother to Cas and Dean and play a matchmaker for them because Sam can’t even do the role of Destiel Matchmaker correctly. Can he stay on the sides, hopefully dead for a while till Mary, his Mother manages to make Destiel canon in a TV show with audience who don’t know shit about shipping and have been falsely lead to believe for 10 years to believe that Dean Winchester is straight because he fucks too many girls and has relationship with too many of them to be actually straight. 

William Shatner: Destiel, uh not really. 

Destihellers: You are only saying that because you are friends with evil bibros. This is a conspiracy. I won’t believe that you are Misha’s friend because you just disrespected my ship that exists in the fanfictional world. 

William Shatner: This is all just about a ship.

Destihellers: You are using your celebrity power to bully poor Destiel shippers, you should be ashamed of being a celebrity and defending yourself. Being a celebrity automatically means you cannot defend yourself from people questioning your mental capability due to old age. 

Meghan, the Assistant of the new SPN Show Runner: I’ll read a Destiel handbook about how EVERYONE SEES Destiel and why it needs to be canon now.

J2/Bibros/casual non shipper fans: Ok, do it at home though. Not at work. Keep shipping away from the show, thanks. I don’t know how I feel about someone in the crew reading Destiel fanfiction. The show is about Sam and Dean first though.

Destihellers: Oh god, oh Lord I am so hurt and disappointed in the SPNFamily. Oh these few vile evil bibros, worshipers of unholy Wincest. HOW DARE YOU BE RUDE TO SOMEONE IN THE SPN CREW. LOOK AT YOU DARING TO TWEET ANDREW DABB. I CAN SEE YOU ARE TRYING TO GET THE HER FIRED. I can’t believe how horrible they are to the SPN crew its like they forgot only we have the right to do that since the past 6 years. Oh Maghan, you are already our favorite if you didn’t notice with all the asskissing we are doing. You will be a special example serving as evidence in the next ‘Why Supernatural Queerbaits and how its a conspiracy’ Article when Destiel still isn’t Canon in Season 12 finale. You’ll do what Katherine and other people related to the show we spent our time on couldn’t do – Teach Jensen the error of his’ not liking Destiel and loving SamandDean too much he might be one of those evil bibro accounts on twitter/tumblr’ ways. If you can’t do it, we will give you mention you along with Jensen and Jared and all the other professional queerbaiters. 

Jensen: Misha is a friend, he is really-

Destihellers: SEE I TOLD YOU HE IS ALWAYS QUEERBAITING. Its like he thinks he can queerbait like our lord Misha and get away with it. No one else get to queerbait us but Misha without being called a Queerbaiter even if have called him homophobe for many years.

Jensen: Thoughts with Orlando.

Destihellers: SPNFamily is amazing. So much support but I don’t think Jensen has the right to be a decent human being since he doesn’t like the idea of Destiel in Canon and it has already made him homophobic.

Gay/LesbianBisexual/Pansexual/Asexual/Trangender/Etc. fans:  No, not Destiel. No forcing other sexuality on a straight character for representation, thanks.

Destihellers: No, YOU. You are homophobic/biphobic, what do you know? Please fuck off we need representation for the LGBTQA society. Don’t you understand how important it is that Dean be bi and Destiel be canon for the LGBTQA society? 

LGBTQA Society: …. How about helping us and the people in our communities who are facing physical/mental abuse, being abandoned by family, living in poor condition, trying to commit suicide at least once or once every year before we turn 20 instead of trying to turn a stated straight character from a 10 year old TV Show into Bi so you can see some man on man action? 

Destihellers: Here is a handbook for you … see how Destiel is already canon and seen by everyone so that it can actually be officially canon. Thanks. Good Day. Lets all respect each other and live like a family. We love you till you love what we love and see what we see. If not, you can fuck off bye. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t straight, you are homophobic anyway.

——

I hope while you do your light reading this summer on how to identify a destiheller and what to expect when you come across one, this handbook helps you understand the Destihell logic and gives you an understanding of what to expect while dealing with one. Don’t try to use your general logic while dealing with these special creatures. Not being able to grasp their logic might lead to severe case of mental harassment and trauma.

Imagine overhearing Sonny telling his nieces everything he loves about you

Imagine overhearing Sonny telling his nieces everything he loves about you

“Girls stop running!” Sonny called as his seven and six-year-old nieces dropped your hands and darted towards the playground.

“Sonny,” You protested, “They are just running to the playground. We can see them, we don’t need to walk them.”

“I guess you’re right,” He sighed before calling out again, “Make sure we can still see you!”

“You need to relax,” You giggled, grabbing hold of his arm and giving it a squeeze.

“I know, I know,” He agreed, intwining his hand with yours, as you continued your slow stroll to the playground though you both continued to keep a steady eye on the girls who were now on the monkey bars, “It’s just hard you know, to separate what we do and everyday life. I don’t know how you do it.”

“Well,” You began, “I try and think logically, yes, we might see it every day but think about the thousands of kids that go to the park in this city every day. What we do everyday isn’t an everyday thing. And anyway they have us. Two of the best detectives in the city watching them, I’d love to see someone try and take us on.”

“How do you always do that?” Sonny inquired, looking straight at you briefly before looking back.

“Do what?” You countered, looking up at him.

“Make everything feel better.” He explained.

“What can I say?” You giggled, “I’m easer and a pleaser not a messer and a stresser.”

The people that were crying over Harry having to perform with his wrist still wrapped up after surgery are the same people complaining that Harry should do the whole performance even when he’s sick. How about we just be grateful Harry performed at all instead of cancelling even though he’s not feeling well? Or would that make too much sense?

You heard that right, my dudes: 100 (presumably) separate people have decided to stick with this loser.

And to celebrate this great phenomenon, I thought I’d do some shoutouts!
But in general, I wanna thank each and every one of you for slamming that follow button. If you didn’t make the list, do not fret: your local garbage (me) may have forgotten, as she is wont to do, and as such, she apologizes profusely in advance. Having said that, I imagine if I ever make the remarkable climb to 200, I’ll do this again, so FEAR NOT: YOUR CHANCES HAVE NOT YET ENDED.

So. Let’s get into this, shall we ? I do believe we shall!

Hi I recently got into art about 2 to 3 years ago, when I found your art on YouTube I absolutely loved it! Anyways I have a question, how do you draw/color eyes? Just something that's been bugging me for a while.

thanks! I think that’s awesome that you’re getting into art and is finding inspiration to keep you going with it!!! :D

So eyes are one of my favorite parts to draw for sure! Though you can’t always put any shape of eyes on any face. I mean, you can but it might look funny. Even though I draw cartoons, I still follow basic principles of anatomy and logical physics in my works. With eyes, eyes are placed on the head and face depending on how they will fit on that shape of the head. for instance, the cheek bones for example, frame the eyes. so you want to place the eyes where they fit inside the cheek bones, even if the character’s face doesn’t follow realistic logic. 

Eyes also are really fun because they basically show the characters personality. being as I draw cartoons, I can make all sorts of funky shapes for eyes in the characters that I draw. but I still follow somewhat of an anatomy structure, even if that structure is just as cartoony as the characters I’m drawing. Eyes also bend and stretch depending on emotions, which is also really fun. 

source: http://ryky.deviantart.com/art/Eyes-reference-446804598

like, these eyes aren’t quite realism, and have a bit of semi-realistic/anime look to them, but if you notice, they still follow the whole anatomical laws as a real life eye. Mine do to even though mine are far more cartoony. Even a simple 

Even a simple oval which is SUPER cartoony, follows this. Cartoons are a lot more flexible but Pearl’s eyes are still places carefully on the face to where it looks fitting as if she had cheek bones underneath her cartoony exterior. ya know, where the eyes look logical and natural even with her eyes just being ovals, they are lively and expressive and look natural on where they are placed. 

So I guess, what I suggest, is try to think of your characters in a skeletol structure, even if they are cartoons, there is still some form os structure every character has, and this can help on where to place the eyes and what chapes work with that face structure. 

For more realistic eyes, here’s a WONDERFUL tutorial by Kiwi Byrd on how they paint eyes!!! :D

YOU ASKED FOR IT *cracks knuckles* i'd like to request #17 off that wedding AU prompts list for bellarke please & thank:-)

“No.”

“Please?”

“No.”

“Double please?”

No.” 

“Please-that’s-held-to-an-unreasonable-standard-of-beauty?”

“What? No.” A pause. “Though I appreciate your take on pretty please.” 

Clarke groans. “Bellamy!” 

“Clarke!” he mimics—poorly, in her opinion. “Just don’t go.”

“That would be even worse than going alone!” Clarke exclaims. “Because then Lexa would think I’m too in love with her to watch her get married to someone else, which is wrong, so I need to go and you need to go with me.”

Bellamy makes a disgusted noise, staring determinedly at his book. 

“I’m going to be the world’s biggest loser,” she insists. “I’ll be forever known as the pathetic ex who’s doomed to never find love because she’s pining over a taken woman. Do you want that? To be best friends with someone who’s a known pathetic ex?”

Bellamy shoves his reading glasses up his nose, licks his finger and deliberately turns the page of his book. “How do you think logic works, exactly? I already know you’re pathetic, and you’re my best friend anyway,” he points out.

Clarke pauses. “Aww.” She pats his chest. “I think you’re pathetic too.”

anonymous asked:

We need more Tamara appreciation. I want to be Tamara honestly. Do you have any headcanons for her? Or maybe a short story about her badassery? I love your work! Thank you!

Nonny, I’m so sorry for how late this is but I hope you like it anyway!! I had so much fun writing it, thank you for the prompt <3 

trueka and I did a collab on this; she made AWESOME fanart to go with the headcanons and it can be found here!!

  • First of all, Tamara is a storm trapped in a girl’s skin. She is level-headed and capable of thinking logically, but she can be as destructive/impulsive as her two bestfriends. She’s also far better at using technology than either of them is.
  • Tamara knows how to fight with her fists as well as with magic. She learned how to throw a punch at a young age, then spent three summers learning Martial Arts because she knows magic can only do so much before it turns against you. What happened to her older sister is proof of that.
  • She is known as the Magisterium’s resident badass. Aaron and Call might be Makars, but it’s Tamara Rajavi you really need to watch out for.
  • She’s fiercely protective of her friends and their general wellbeing. She wouldn’t hesitate to make vines sprout out of the ground and harshly pin someone to a wall if they made an unsavory comment about Call and Aaron. She’s also very protective of Jasper, even if she denies it.
  • She keeps wearing her hair in braids well into her sixth year, and she sometimes wears adorned golden hoops earrings that she inherited from her grandmother. 
  • She always invites her friends home on holidays and buys them simple presents, even though her family doesn’t celebrate Christmas nor Thanksgiving.
  • She always helps decorate the Common Room with Christmas Lights (and mistletoe that one time because come on Aaron, just make a move on Call already!), and makes up excuses to stay with the boys when they don’t go home for holidays.
  • She pulls all sorts of pranks with Call -on people that terribly deserve them, mind- but they never get caught because Tamara is a great strategist and Call is a very good liar. Aaron helps with reluctant advice to better the prank and heaved sighs, and Jasper curses a lot and tags along grumpily because he doesn’t like feeling left out.
  • She excels at her tests and is always on Call’s case to study and do his research. She plans on becoming one of the Masters and joining the Assembly members because she dislikes their current way of handling things.
  • She and Call are the ultimate brotp, and she’s the one who gets Call to finally finally talk to Aaron about his feelings.
  • Jasper trusts her more than anyone else and she’s his secret-keeper. Whenever things at home get too hard for him, Tamara is the first to find out and she often talks him into spending the weekend at her house instead. 
  • She’s tough as nails but a very loving creature, and she has a great sense of right and wrong. 
  • Bottom line is that Tamara Rajavi is a gift and one that doesn’t need to be protected. Because she does the protecting

This was supposed to be a quick little ‘what if’ thing since I finished my exchange fic. It did not stay little. Thanks @willowaus for listening to me complain.


It was his smile that dug into her bones.

Fighting against his sister’s hold, Caroline went still at the curve of Klaus Mikaelson’s lips. He watched Tyler die, eyes intent and glittering, but it was his smile that told the monster under her skin this monster was dangerous. Those dimples, that delight as he pulled the marionette strings, it was an expression that had seen more than she could imagine.

And as Tyler gasped awake, a new creature, that smile widened and she shook, just a little.

“You can’t beat us,” Rebekah told her, nails biting into her arms. “None of you can.”

In that moment, Caroline believed her.


Caroline told Elena to make a deal.

Brown eyes wide, she’d looked stunned before she’d shook her head. “I’m not helping him. I can’t believe you’d suggest I should. He’s a monster, Caroline.”

Him, being Klaus.

Licking chapped lips, Caroline fisted her hands. The inside of her bedroom should’ve felt safe, instead it was a false barrier. Klaus could parade in and out of her room as he choose - evidence, a spectacular diamond bracelet that terrified her every time she saw it.

It was such a beautiful threat, after all.

“What happens if you don’t help him, Elena?”

Elena shrugged and played with the ends of her hair. “Damon has a plan.”

Caroline closed her mouth, glanced away from her friend. Damon had a plan. She let Elena change the subject, let her shift the conversation to sillier, less serious topics. All the while, her insides knotted.

Damon was going to get them all killed.

A hundred years plus a few decades, give or take, up against a millennium of experience. An unkillable monster. One who offered the world as if it was a mere plaything - who toyed with people as if they were his own personal marionettes.

Elena would rather trust Caroline’s rapist, than bargain with her blood; Caroline knew bargaining with the devil was dangerous. But Klaus would get his doppelgänger made army, regardless of the cost. Caroline didn’t understand why he’d chosen to toy with them, but she’d no doubt he’d carve his price from all of them soon enough.

Her hands shook as she locked the door when she was alone.

So what was she going to do?

fredokahlo  asked:

You literally put so much energy into hating “heterophobes” when you really should focus on making the LGBT community better since you’re bi supposedly. How about spread love not useless hate.

I’m spreading hate by being against hate… okay… logic. Anyway, I really don’t put much energy in because recently I’ve been doing things away from this hellhole.

My parents and I are good friends because of Star Trek. I love them and all, and they raised me, but I know a lot of people aren’t really friends with their folks. It can be a tough thing.

But I’ve been lucky that because my parents loved and watched Star Trek, we always had something to talk about beyond how well i was doing in love/school/work/life. We could always talk about the moral and philosophical implications of the latest Next Generation episode.

And when it came to Thanksgiving, for a number of years my Dad, Uncle and I would go see the latest Trek movie in theaters come gobble gobble day.

The first one we saw was Undiscovered Country and I remember this vividly because I remember thinking Spock with rocket boots was kind of silly. Not logical. But I loved it anyway, cause Leonard Nimoy would sell you all the logical charm he could muster, and you and everyone else you know ate it up cause it was delicious, and Leonard Nimoy was awesome.

So I already loved Leonard Nimoy. But then I found out he wrote the song to the Bilbo Baggins animated feature. Being the enourmous Tolkien fan that I am, I was understandably beside myself to find that Spock was singing about this Hobbit I loved so dearly.

And just now i finished watching this great interview he had with Pharell Williams, and i had no idea he was such an amazing photographer. Well it sadly took him dying for me to find that out, and to find out he’s such a warm amazing creative person IRL. Sad day.

RIP Leonard Nimoy.

blog-of-some-guy  asked:

Since Urobuchi Gen seems to be if not the best but at least consistently competent writer in anime right now I have a question. What about his voice and storytelling makes his work distinct and stand out, enough so that you already know at first glance whether a show is written by him or not?

(Last question today, btw! Thanks for sending in so many fascinating ones, everybody!)

I’m more interested in Urobuchi’s subtextual story ideas than his textual language/writing style (the language barrier doesn’t help, there’s only so much I can tell about his style when I don’t speak Japanese,) but his dialogue is extremely distinctive. It’s not “realistic” per se. People don’t literally talk like real people, but that’s true of most distinctive scripts. (and Boochi makes people talk more like real people than most other *anime* do at least.) However, it’s consistent. Boochi makes sure all his characters use different speaking styles, language use, and are interested in talking about different things. Most of his characters symbolize an idea, but unlike, say, Christopher Nolan who also writes “characters as ideas” rather than people, Boochi keeps them human. He gets characters to talk about what ideals or concepts they symbolize by jamming them up next to someone who is completely opposite to them. (Sayaka v. Kyoko in Madoka, Kiritsugu v. Saber in F/Z, Akane v. Kogami in Psycho-Pass.) The way I just put it makes it sound dumb and obvious though, and it never is. Hell, Kiritsugu and Saber only speak to each other *three times*, and in all three cases, they don’t talk about their philosophies. They both express their ideals to Irisviel, who acts as a conduit and therapist to both of them (but it’s a tragedy, so ultimately she can’t communicate each’s beliefs to the other.) So it’s never just people standing around talking about philosophies. I *hate* that. Boochi doesn’t do that, he finds ways to lace it into the action of the story and force those conversations, kinda like how musical numbers need to come out of emotional necessity in a musical, and the perfect placement of them is what makes the show good. Outside of this, his characters just act like people, with heavily relatable emotions and actions, but it’s those glimpses into “THIS PERSON REPRESENTS THIS PHILOSOPHY” that make all of those emotions and actions carry weight.

Anyway, that’s all textual. That’s *how* he talks. *What* he talks about is what I really find fascinating. Boochi loves to juxtapose the absolute *pit* of emotionless cruelty against naive optimism, and find truth in both things. He’s so sympathetic to and deeply understanding of “evil” and where it comes from that it’s scary. He doesn’t write bad guys who are just bad and you shouldn’t like them. He forces you to really understand why the bad guys think what they do, and he goes out of his way to almost make their ideals sound logical…appealing…you can see why they almost succeed. He writes impeccable Lucifers, basically. (Kyubey in Madoka, Gilgamesh in Fate/Zero, Makishima in Psycho-Pass.) But the amazing thing to me is that he equally understands the purest and most optimistic hope and goodness in humanity…and that’s the side he chooses, every time! He goes out of his way to show how evil and heartless the universe around us is, how much sense it makes to succumb to and embrace it, and then at the last second, convincingly makes a case for hope over despair (Madoka), mercy over justice (Fate/Zero), and order over anarcy (Psycho-Pass.) To embrace both perspectives so wholeheartedly and portray the triumph of good over evil in a way that always rings true, and turns bittersweet or even barely sweet endings into real heartwarmers…well, it’s cray-cray. I mostly admire Boochi for how intimately he understands a massive variety of human hearts, and how he refuses to really judge any of them, just to understand.

Boochi and I appear to love a lot of the same ideas and I want to steal his powers is what I’m saying.

I was pretty excited to see a positive challenge for once, but to my dismay, it was not a good message:
This #dontjudgechallenge needs to stop just as quickly as it started. This challenge is one where individuals mock those who don’t look a certain way or fit societies standards by putting on makeup to resemble acne, scars, teeth gaps, glasses, etc. and then reveal themselves with their regular makeup as the “don’t judge me because this is what is hiding under the acne, etc” result.. Certain individuals are even going to the extreme and using asthma pumps in their “before” shots… Lung conditions aren’t funny or “ugly”. I, for one, have a tooth gap. I don’t find making fun of this funny. I don’t appreciate you visually stating that it’s ugly either. It’s not like I purposely chose to have one, but hey, I look good as hell with it. If you don’t like it, too bad. Unfortunately, not many people can own their insecurities easily or overcome them with confidence.. So why continue putting people down? I do not understand the logic of my generation. Besides, with both the “before” and “after” you are using a mask of makeup, so there is not even an ounce of authenticity in your videos either. Instead of spreading a, what could have been, positive message, you are participating in a, now, viral-challenge that happens daily anyway. Honestly, how is it even a challenge when you judge people on the fly? How do you expect others to accept and love themselves when you are constantly telling them they are ugly and do so by hiding behind a spurious hopeful message of “Don’t judge”..?  If the message is not to judge, why are you putting those kinds of things on your face and in your video? Is the purpose of the video not to judge? My goodness. Don’t tell me “Oh, lighten up. It’s funny!” Making fun of people’s insecurities is not funny. Please get off of the internet.

You want a challenge? Walk up to a person who looks like your “before” and tell them they’re beautiful. They need it now, more than ever, because YOU are literally making fun of them all over the internet. Go fix what you did for your new challenge. Bye.

Okay I’ll do it because I’m so freaking emotional right now - I may or may not be crying- because I’m listening to Sam Smith and looking at photos of Stonefield at the same time which is NEVER a good idea. I’ll put under the cut, so if you don’t want to read it, just don’t click on “read more”. But I’ll leave you with a cute photo:

Hmm if Bamon was to happen it could never be as fanservice.

I repeat, bamon could never be a fanservice.

Wanna know why? Because, my shipper goggles aside, it’s the LOGICAL thing to do. We had almost 5 seasons of slow burn for it. Bonnie becomes herself when she’s with Damon, and I’m sure you all already realized how her words and her actions are a good thing for Damon because they help him grow as a character. Don’t confuse lack of screentime with lack of development because I assure you the later has been there. So, whatever way the writers decided to make this ship canon, if they ever did, it would make sense. Plus, he actually kinda loves her, remember?

My opinion anyways.
