No matter how I look at it, Yongguk is the perfect guy in terms of everything. He loves children, donating to charity is in his second nature, his smile is one of the post purest most beautiful things I’ve ever seen, he respects the elderly, he’s intelligent, he works hard and is committed to what he does, he’s like a father figure to all of his members, he’s strong and stands for whats right, he’s downright gorgeous, and his voice is a blessing to all of us. But seriously though, whoever marries this man will hit the biggest jackpot there is.
(yay, it’s here! in this post, i’ll mostly be talking about key points that i thought stood out the most and may give us hints to the over all plot and personalities of the gems and other characters)
first note- “ don’t forget out… arrangement” “that’s what you get for raising me to love music”
we find out, that steven does in fact: demand a song at every flashback/story from his father. 10/10 . I love the lil inside jokes of steven universe
through the song, we hear that greg was probably not educated in how to raise a child at all, just like most adults in real life. and if there’s anything i love about steven universe, it’s how realistic they are. greg loves steven but that doesn’t make his a perfect parent, if there even is one. and i really like that. also, linked to this-
how greg looks at vidalia, yellow-tail and sour-cream. it looks as tho he is reminded of rose and how he would have liked to raise steven with her. and of course, this episode is very much about the transition of everything being about rose, to being about steven, as you will notice, most, if not, all of the flashbacks are about rose or have a lot on rose in them. at this point in time, is where that changes and is more about steven, with occasional moments of the gems and greg missing rose and crying and probably singing about it.
what’s up with steven and rose’s gem?? does it actually need to breathe? it could make sense if it did, 14 year old steven wears a shirt and jeans, the shirt would still be breathable but the lil baby jumpsuit onsie thing he has on, not so much.
“lil rose”. ouch. the feels.
LOOK AT PEARL. M Y L O V E P L E A S E. (funfact, i love pearl, she is my fav and i have never doubted her once)
aside from jokes- notice that amethyst seems to be dealing with this ok, pearl… definitely not so much, from her prospective, rose is basically dead. and garnet is garnet. she is now the leader of the crystal gems pretty much and has to keep calm and rational. she has to be strong and keep everyone together.
her maturity to the situation shown when explaining that steven is NOT just a little rose, he is just steven the baby with rose’s gem. or at least that’s basically what she said, i imagine from here, they didn’t see steven as a friend or person, just as rose. or maybe like, an illiterate and uneducated version of rose? which is shown in their gifts. but not garnet’s. she has future vision. she doesn’t count here.
again. pearl. people are gonna be calling her salty again for this. but, every time i see her face like this, i just know how much it must hurt for her.
i’d like to prove my point on how the gems had thought of steven being a gem. amethyst thought that steven could just shape shift into them. a gem thing. the gems don’t have understanding of how babies work at all, they’re gems, and have never been babies, they just weren’t then were. which is expressed later in the episode. so they think of steven like an uneducated gem that has just been born, he can read, think and do as he pleases with his own rational understanding. BUT NO. HE CAN’T HE HUMAN. AND GEM.
another side note, “it’s just a box, made to look like it was carefully wrapped” 14 years later - connie: “
It’s just a box made to look like I spent a lot of time wrapping it.
“ again with the inside jokes
from here, the gems think that steven really is rose. and proceed to kidnap him, after a stranger things style communication from pearl
1- change in styles 2- pearl driving 3- “he’ll thank us later” did they think that they could get steven and rose apart?? apparently so, since they try to get steven to ‘unfuse’ later.
now, it becomes very clear after this what they gems thing about steven. they all think he is a gem. amethyst thinks it’s shape shifting (also, she was a toilet for almost a month apparently.)
, garnet thinks it’s fusion
and btw, what happens with steven here, is exactly how a baby would react. since at tthis age, babies only know what is in front of them, for example, if you hind under a blanket, even tho it’s obvious you’re still there, to a baby, it’s like you’re not there at all. so another realistic scene from the show. i love it so much. also garnet’s small voice crack when she says “ i don’t understand”
and finally, pearl. who thinks rose is just stuck with a baby around her gem. not seeing steven as part of her at all. or rose as part of him. she is just stuck in him.
and honestly, this is so sad. all she wants is the one she loves back. but she can’t do it. she knows it would be selfish to end what rose wanted so much.
“everything should grow and everything should change. and isn’t it so wonderful that it comes so naturally for humans.. but it’s not natural for us. it’s not natural for me…”
that right there. almost got me in tears.
then this scene. this is where everything changes. it really is all about steven now, it may be hard for them, the gems especially. but they just made a change. accepting that this is rose and gregs child and that he is what is left now.
another side note-
buck and jenny as kids
now back to sad stuff-
“just a bunch of small ideas that never came together.”
which is basically everything i explained before. with what the gems thought steven was and how they should deal with it.
and let’s just appreciate this lil family moment. all steven has all together.
and then steven telling everyone about how wrong they were and pearl saying “well, that was a really long time ago”
yeah, no. she has a different sense of time. 14 years is next to nothing to a gem. let’s be honest. this is just pearl trying to cover for herself and the others by extent. only to hear from steven, that he meant they were wrong about changing.
we see pearl giving amethyst the tea bag from greg’s tea, which is something she wouldn’t have done in season one for sure.
pearl giving greg the tea in a caring manner, rather than the usual cold way she does. (i know this is a bad inbetween like screenshot. it’s hard to get good ones all the time, ok??)
and… i’d like to ask. is anyone gonna talk about how the gems threw a jungle gym at steven’s baby sitter?
*in The Nightmare Before Christmas, Jack mentions early on that he is dead which is perfect for being extra scary and reciting Shakespeare but then later on when he's obsessing over Christmas and everyone is worried about him one character says that they hope he hasn't died. How is this a concern if Jack is already dead? Can he die again? How did he die the first time? If he were to die, where would his soul go if the land he lives in acts as some sort of afterlife? Also while we're on the subject what does the world behind the Thanksgiving door look like?
- Part four of my Inquisition Baroque Portrait Series: Cullen Rutherford -
FINALLY. There he is. At 1:30 in the
morning, it’s finally done.
Ignore the fact that his skin still
sort of looks like wax. I tried to make it shiny. And a little
sweaty. But well, we can’t have everything we want, can we and all i
wanted was to finally get done with this one, jesus christ it took
So, where a my fellow cullenites? <3
(btw does anyone have advice for
painting beard stubble? And does it show how much trouble I had
painting this piece? My mundane brain just can’t seem to grasp the
extent of cullens handsomeness and pure perfection)
“Does Gianni know?” “Nope.” “How do you…feel?” “Terrified.” “I know it’s scary, but…you’re gonna be good. You’re gonna be great. I know you, Roon. You’re cut out for this, you and him both. Any kid you make will be perfect. Honest.” “I’m gonna look like a whale at our wedding.” “Yeah, but a beautiful whale.”
SO THE MAJORITY OF YOU CAN LEARN A THING OR FUCKING TWO.
Lesson number one: Don’t believe every thing you see on the internet.
Hey did you know that there’s only an estimated 120 West Estonian Shepherds left on the planet?
*reblog - omfg guys how sad we need to bring this beautiful breed back!* *gets 23,837 notes*
NOPE. That’s a regular old German Shepherd. Long haired. Sable coat. BUT, since someone has stated a breed that literally does not even exist and posted a cute photo next to it everyone with an eye for anything cute and maybe 3 braincells has bought it. GUYS PLS. ~actual real example time~
What the internet says: Siberian Husky X Pomeranian! Looks like a husky puppy but never gets bigger! how perfect! omg just so cute! totez need one!!1 Pomskies are my absolute new fave breed. LOVez it!~
What it actually is: A Finnish Lapphund puppy. OK?!
Internet says: Siberian Husky X Golden Retriever. Cutie!! I neED ONE!
What it actually is: Blue Merle Australian Shepherd. once again a breed not even remotely close to what’s being advertised.
Lesson number two: Designer breeds.
Obviously there are tons of cross breeds around the world; considering that most pedigree dogs now have come from the cross breeding of many earlier breeds, it should be to no surprise that the world will continue to create new breeds. The Labradoodle, Cockapoo, Puggle, Maltese Shih Tzu etc. Are all well known and loved “designer” breeds. These have been proven to work through time and numbers. The Labradoodle was originally created as a hypoallergenic breed to help the blind who were allergic to fur.
Recently, however, with the growing fascination for Huskies, an alarming amount of Husky cross breeds are appearing. These are creating an appeal for the dimwitted who see something *omfg just so cute1* (even though the picture wasn’t even of the cross breed stated!) and create a rise in consumer wants. With this, puppy mills jump into action and churn out this new fan fave. (puppy mills are a whole other can of worms i’ll open for another time)
Dumb designer husky breeds that you should not buy: (generally because of false advertising)
Chusky - Chow Chow cross Sib Husky.
What they actually usually look like:
(not that he isn’t still beautiful!)
The Goberian - Golden Retriever X Sib Husky (actually a merled aussie as well)
What they actually usually look like: She’s a cutie too tho :*
Pomsky - Pomeranian X Sib Husky. (actually an Alaskan Malamute puppy)
What they actually usually look like:
never hesitate to adopt. any dog. ever.
But don’t be fooled by idiots on the net and always do your research. Don’t be a sheep. Figure it out. jfc.
What is your honest opinion about the other admins?
So Jamie has been one of my closest friends since at least Dashcon now. She is so absolutely creative and talented and so much fun to hang out with. I’m so glad we’re on the blog together, and did you guys know she’s one of my bridesmaids?
I always forget just how Ravenclaw Caitlin is and then she says and does things and I’m like YUP perfect Ravenclaw right here. She’s like the little sister I never had and I’m so proud of all that she has accomplished??? Like, she’s so smart and creative and free spirited and I think if I was 10 years younger, we would be friends, or I’d look up to her immensely.
Justin is so much fun and I’m so glad we can do stuff together irl. He’s such a wine mom and I love hanging out with him and his people. He’s such a Slytherin and watching his mind work is fascinating.
Sometimes I hate seeing the bombshells blogs of black women. Yeah these are very beautiful women, and I understand you wanna show the world that black is beautiful (because it is). But you must understand that ALL black is beautiful. This means the ones with little butt, and the ones with small boobs. The ones who don’t know how to do that perfect eyeliner and those perfect eyebrows. The ones who don’t have those voluptuous curves. The ones who have type 4 hair and those who have type 5 hair (And yes it does exist.) Bottom line us as a whole ARE BOMBSHELLS and to only view one side of it, what’s deemed as beautiful by society is kind of irritating to other black girls and women like me that can’t relate because I look nothing like them.
Batman headcanon that Conner is such an open and affectionate boyfriend to Tim. Like Tim is still shy and insecure about their relationship and isn’t one to make a big deal of it. But Kon is so damn happy that Tim likes him back and he gets to kiss the boy wonder whenever he wants he can’t contain himself. His bf is just so talented and handsome and amazing Kon needs to share his love with the world.
You bet during interviews about alien attacks, Kon goes onto long tangents about how his boyfriend saved the day cause he’s just that awesome and have you seen that butt? Phew! And he totally does the Will Smith pose with Tim in order to show off how great his Robin is. Like look at him, he’s perfect and he’s mine and I love him. He’s such a romantic and he totally does dramatic make-outs mid-battle and constantly surprises the bae with presents and flowers. Tim is super embarrassed by all the attention but it really makes him feel good. He’s been neglected and written off for most of his life that to have someone heap praises upon him and gush about him like he’s important. Which is of course one of the reasons Kon does it. Also because he's happy with Tim and he wants to world to know it.
Just after Dudley was born Vernon and Petunia were just so tired and needed a break but couldn’t get a babysitter. Mrs Figg wasn’t free and they tried everything until they had to give up and try Lily.
Lily and James show up at number 4 and neither couple say anything but Petunia left a really detailed note. Once they’re alone James starts freaking out ‘Lily what is this giant cold light’ 'that’s a fridge James’. 'Lily what does this do? Can I eat it?’ 'No James that’s a CD’. Baby Dudley like the funny lady who goes 'where’s the hippogriff’ because his daddy never plays with him.
Lily pops outside for a quick smoke (because I imagine perfect, wonderful Lily Potter has this one vice) and James is left with the baby and they just look at each other and James is just like 'hi baby muggle how’s it going. Your cousin Harry couldn’t come, but his uncles Remus and Sirius are with him’ and baby Dudley just starts chewing James jumper and James doesn’t know what to do and when Lily comes in James is standing on a table shouting 'Lily help, this tiny muggle is broken he wants to eat me’ and now Lily has to deal with two babies.
Petunia and Vernon come back and amazingly nothing horrible has happened to their child so Vernon nods at James and says 'Thank you Potter’ and it’s the nicest he’s ever been to him and Lily actually gets a hug from Petunia.
A month later there’s a new baby in number 4.
Summary: hi! could you write a theo imagine based on Melanie martinez’s song Dollhouse? something where theo & reader are yelling at each other and he says something about (accuses) her having a perfect life, and she confesses about her dysfunctional family?? sorry that’s oddly specific haha I just really love the song :-) thanks!
Places, places, get in your places, throw on your dress and put on your doll faces. Everyone thinks that we’re perfect. Please don’t let them look through the curtains.
This house, these photographs hanging on the wall and sitting pretty all throughout the house was a lie, a cover up if you would. Only you knew and saw what happened once guests let and once that front door closed. No-one could understand or even fathom how picture perfect you had to be within these walls.
Theo had come over like he does everyday and straight away you knew he was in a bad mood. From the moment he stepped through the door, his jaw was clenched and you could tell he was taking deep breaths to calm himself down.
“Everything okay Theo?” you asked him, and a part of you wished you hadn’t.
“Okay? Does everything look like it’s okay?” he sighed.
“It was just a question, there is no need to get all mad about it” you replied. Usually when things between you and Theo got to the point where an argument was about to occur, you gave each other space. But something about this fight was going to be different.
“Babe I’m past mad, I have a pack who can’t do anything right which means I have to fix what they screw up, it’s getting harder and harder to achieve what I set out to do and to top it all off I’m still not a bloody alpha!” his voice rose higher every time he checked off another point, Theo had a short fuse that’s for sure.
You didn’t know what to say. So silence seemed like the best option, in fact it was probably the safest one.
Picture, picture, smile for the picture, pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?Everyone thinks that we’re perfect. Please don’t let them look through the curtains.
Theo had picked up a photo frame that was sitting on the mantel, there was plenty to choose from. All showed the same thing, a family that supposedly had no flaws, no issues…oh how people were horribly mistaken.
“It must be nice” Theo spoke and you had no idea what he was referring too.
“What must be nice?” you asked, holding your breath.
“This” he held up the photo in his hands, and pointed to all the ones on the mantel. “To have a family, to grow up with no worries. Your lucky Y/N, you have a fucking perfect life”. He threw the photo on the couch, and the word perfect made you want to throw up.
“You think my life is perfect? You have no idea how wrong you are”.
He turned to you, and it took everything not to explode right then and there.
“Care to elaborate? Because these photos tell a completely different story”.
He didn’t believe you…and you had to admit it hurt. “Yes they do Theo, but photos can be deceiving. Every one of these so called photos is a curtain, their fake! They paint a picture that doesn’t fucking exist Theo!” you shouted, not caring that you were breaking down in front of him.
You went to pick up the photo he threw on the couch, “Do you see this? A photo full of fake smiles, and perfect posture. A photo that is full of lies. You and everyone else see a perfect family, but underneath is a dysfunctional one”. You threw the photo on the floor, and Theo was left standing with a blank expression.
Staring at all the other photos it was harder and harder to pretend that nothing was wrong. “My family is far from perfect, and I didn’t tell you because my parents don’t want anyone to know. So I keep my mouth shut and play along, and I guess it’s all pretty convincing….even you couldn’t see behind the disguise. Can’t believe I fooled Theo Raeken”.
You sat down on the edge of the couch, putting your head in your hands. Theo sat near you and put his hands around you shoulder, pulling you into him. “I’m sorry babygirl, if I had known…”.
“But you didn’t and I can’t blame you for lashing out, you’re under stress too.” you replied.
“That doesn’t mean I let my anger get the best of me, or aim it towards you”.
You looked him in the eye and he gave you a smile, “Well you know now and it’s like a weight lifted off my shoulder”.
He kissed you on the forehead, tracing your skin with his fingers. “Anytime, any day…whenever you want to get away from all this, I will gladly leave my door open for you babe. It can be just the two of us if this gets all to much for you”.
Biting your lip to not allow any tears to fall, you lifted your head. Leaning in your lips find his and it provided you with so much more than what a simple kiss could. Theo was you salvation from this family hell, and when you were with him there was no pretending or faking….because everything was real, everything was perfect.
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E. I see things that nobody else sees.
Living in this house, being apart of a family that was crumbling in more ways than one and having to keep quiet, was the hardest thing ever. You were living in a dollhouse….and now you weren’t the only one who saw that.
The two of you pulled away and Theo grabbed your hand, pulling you up. “Let’s get out of here, yeah?” he told you. Not bothering to clean up or pick up the broken frame, Theo and you walked out and shut the door.
And maybe, just maybe the closing of the door was a metaphor, a sign that better things were headed…and that this dollhouse was going to be no more.
Alright but imagine the overwatch gang all going out for victory tequilas after a big win and reyes having juuuust a few too many and getting all sloppy and suddenly starts rambling about how perfect jack is and how annoying that is and finally let’s out in that drunk voice that you think is WAY quieter than it actually is: “I MEAN HOW ARE YOU NOT SUPPOSED TO FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE WHO LOOKS LIKE THAT WHEN THEY COME? SERIOUSLY. SERIOUSLY!”
and then it gets REALLY quiet and everyone’s staring, and jack’s completely red and ready to bolt and no one knows what to do
until jesse in this mild drunk tone is just like “What does he look like when he comes?”
“LIKE A FUCKING ANGEL ALRIGHT? HE LOOKS LIKE A STUPID FUCKING ANGEL.”
Look, Disney is not
a perfect company. They’ve fucked up quite a few times; I remember
Chicken Little. How the fuck
does one forget a disaster like that? But this movie here is one they
get shit for too, when people remember it, and to be quite frank, I
don’t get why. I’m by no means saying this film is good; it is
not a good film by any means. But at the very least, I can sort of
see why this film has garnered a small cult following. A Disney film
in the wild, wild west? A unique take on the Pied Piper story? Their
final traditionally animated film, for a while anyway? It has a few
things in its favor. But I’ll get into why I at least think this
isn’t necessarily a good or bad thing.
what they’re giving us: three cows are living on a cozy little farm
called the Patch of Heaven. Unfortunately, the farm is about to be
foreclosed, which means the animals are basically fucked. The three
cows head on out into the wilds to find a way to save their home, and
come across a surefire plan to do it: capture the cattle rustler
Alameda Slim for his bounty, which in a shocking turn
of events, is exactly what they need to save the farm. Will they save
the farm, or is Slim gonna rustle them?
i’ve seen a lot of people compare the small giant/little giant to kageyama and hinata and i completely agree, he DOES look like (and sometimes acts like) a kagehina lovechild
i was thinking, maybe the similarities to both are fully intentional?
the small giant has always been a character that hinata has idolized but has remained anonymous.
perhaps he suggests that kageyama and hinata aren’t perfect on their own, even with all the developing that’s gone on with their characters and how hard they’ve worked to improve. he could be there to suggest that TOGETHER they’re at their most powerful. perhaps he’ll remain anonymous until they both realize that one can provide what the other lacks in (eg. kageyama’s experience compliments hinata’s talent) and they’re well on their way to seeing that.
the small giant might not symbolize what hinata has the potential to become but hinata and kageyama together.
what does a monster look like after absorbing a human soul?
it is said to be horrifying. so then, what did asriel look like when he absorbed chara’s?
despite fanon, it’s unlikely their combined form looked like asriel’s adult form. that seems to be a “perfect” form instead, only achievable
with power equal to that of seven human souls. however, the writing in waterfall describes a monster with one human soul as a “horrible beast.” furthermore, there is an incomplete combination to set example in the game: photoshop flowey.
it is difficult to know how much of his design was intended by flowey himself, but he became a horrifying, fleshy monster. photoshop flowey fits waterfall’s description of a monster with a human soul better than asriel’s adult form does.
while there is some speculation that this illustration is of asriel after he absorbed chara’s soul, the first text when reading the waterfall writings states that Frisk is reading “ancient writing.”
given that chara fell in 201X, it’s very unlikely that the “ancient” writing is referring to asriel and chara’s combined form.
perhaps, like photoshop flowey, a creature with fewer than seven humans souls is an imperfect form riddled with human characteristics. flowey was made up of multiple fleshlike pieces, including eyes, mouths, and teeth. only with the power equal to seven human souls did he take on a more natural looking form, that he appears to be able to control at will.
likewise, asriel and chara’s combined form may have taken on a similarly “unsettling” look, a hybrid of monster magic and human flesh. a “horrible beast” in the eyes of both humans and monsters. truly we will never know.
First it was my weight, then my lips now it’s my eyebrows.
What else are you guys gonna degrade
My crooked smile? The bump in the ridge of my nose? My uneven skin tone? My nasty thighs? My little chest? Or how about my nappy hair and masculine arms?
I’m not perfect. I never claimed to be. I of all people know about my downfalls. Just because there’s an anonymous option, does not mean it’s an okay option to make someone further feel like shit about themselves. There are hardly any photographs of me between third grade and my sophomore year in high school because just one would bring me to tears. It’s hard to look at myself too sometimes, but you guys can unfollow me or just not look at my content.
No one deserves that shit even if it is true
Xander with tattoos has become my new favorite thing? I don’t know; it just seems so fitting. So the idea only really works in a modern setting, but consider… Under the cut, because I am incapable of not getting carried away.
