Akatsuki becomes a mercenary group for hire, as they did in Road to Ninja. This is more appropriately named the “everybody comes back to life and somehow things work out AU”… but as promised, 10 Akatsuki members in the timeline of The Last! Designing is fun (esp the village flak jackets) (・∀・)
See more extensive character/AU details below the cut!:
Book!Alec only knew of Magnus’ past relations with Camille from word of mouth yet took this as enough evidence to slander Magnus’ character and become completely distrusting of him for two books (give or take).
Show!Alec saw Camille actually kiss Magnus when they were just getting started with their relationship but had the common sense to recognise that it was against Magnus’ will and gave him an opportunity near the end of the episode to explain himself before jumping to conclusions. Show!Alec also didn’t feel threatened or uncomfortable when Magnus relayed to him how he had struggled with turning Camille in to the Clave because of their past and encouraged Magnus to be open and honest with him about everything, including his past relationships with other people.
Jesus, take the wheel! This show is just too good. What did we do to deserve this masterpiece? :’)
I’m sure other people have noticed this before me, but I was rewatching t6t and I couldn’t help but think about this.
“It’s the gap. Look at the gap. It’s wrong. Everything else is perfectly ordered, managed. This whole thing’s verging on OCD. … Something’s missing from here, but only recently.”
The gap. I can’t help but think this has to do with the show itself. Everything is this show is meticulous. All of the details are perfectly aligned, and yet, this ugly gap remains. It’s bordering on OCD. Something is missing from the show- but only recently, only season 4. Only now.
Around this same part, he starts talking about intuitions and how intuitions are simply data processed too fast to comprehend. How we should listen to our intuitions. Others have agreed that this episode went really fast and needed time to go back and rewatch to fully process it.
All these things that feel wrong with season 4 are the gap. The data processed too fast to comprehend it.
I created the sugar list out of need. I needed to songs to get ready to, to boost my confidence to, to remember why I had decided to go pro in the first place. Once I started the list, I found myself listening to and discovering new songs to add to the list. It’s an ever growing monster that I hope you enjoy. There are some songs that would be perfect on this playlist that I avoided because I had exhausted their appeal to me and others because I didn’t like the artist or the message they were providing. This list is just a jumping off point. Tweak it to your hearts content.
Whatever You Like- T.I.- Perhaps one of the first songs I ever heard that talked about sugaring. It’s still a dream. A man that will look me in the eye and say I can have whatever I like? Please, sugar gods, please.
Can’t Tell Me Nothing- Kanye West- This is my reminder that I’m not sugaring for accessories. I’m trying to better myself. To get certain things that will advance me towards my goal. To build a business that will get my money so right, I’ll only have men around for giggles.
All N My Grill- Missy Elliott- To the men who want to text and email and date the women they met on SD sites but don’t want to do the one thing that the site says they should be doing. Why aren’t they paying bills?
She Wants to Move- N.E.R.D. - When it’s time for me to leave you, when it’s time for me to dance, you don’t need to come with me, daddy.
About the Money- T.I.- His second feature on this list and perhaps one of the more obvious songs. If it aint about the money, why are we speaking? What else could you possibly offer?
Mascara- Jazmine Sullivan- Perhaps the song that speaks the most blatantly about life as a sugar baby on this list and the song that I think should be the sugar baby anthem, it’s a reminder to always stay well dressed, always stay ready for more.
What's your opinion on Lori as a wife and as a mother? Do you think she deserved all the hate?
absolutely not. lori was perhaps the most undeservedly vilified character in the history of the show.
first of all, the cheating argument is preposterous. lori truly believed that rick was dead and, as far as i’m concerned, you cannot cheat on a dead spouse (“till death do us part”, right?). a lot of people think that she should at least have waited longer before jumping into a new relationship, but they seem to forget that 1) you cannot put a timeline on this kind of things nor can you determine how soon is too soon when it comes to someone else’s life and 2) she was actually still mourning her husband’s death while she was with shane, as proved by the fact that she wore rick’s wedding ring around her neck right up till the moment he found his way back to her and their son. so no, she didn’t just “get over” the man she’d been married to for at least 13 years. no one could do that.
i guess you could argue that lori hooked up with shane as a means of protecting herself and carl, and while that might not have been right from a moral standpoint, she did what any mother would do, which was using all the resources at her disposal to keep her child safe. plus, i think shane always knew what he was in for but his one-sided feelings for lori and his subsequent growing obsession with her and carl blinded him to the fact that, while she might have been somewhat attracted to him, she was still very much in love with rick.
it’s true that lori and rick’s marriage wasn’t perfect – it was hinted at having been on the rocks even before the outbreak –, but you have to remember that relationships take work and a lot of emotional energy, and sometimes they hit rough patches and couples forget how to communicate. ideally, they should have sought counseling other before the world went to shit but alas they didn’t and that’s why there was such a huge rift between them in season 3, even though they still loved each other, in sarah wayne callie’s own words, “at a cellular level”.
as for lori’s skills as a mother, i honestly can’t believe some of the things i’ve heard. she was very protective of carl and it was clear that he was her number one priority. anyone who blamed her for not keeping track of him at all times has clearly never met a 12-year-old (not to mention the fact that carl was lori’s responsibility as much as he was rick’s).
the fact that she was against him learning how to handle guns didn’t make her a bad mother who wanted to leave her son vulnerable. she just wanted to keep her kid… well, a kid. she wanted his life to be as normal as possible and you cannot possibly fault her for that. she didn’t make it that far into the apocalypse – she didn’t witness what the rest of the group had to witness in later seasons and she didn’t meet any of the horrible people they’ve met.
it saddens me that she never got to meet judith because i know she would have loved her as much as she loved carl. -rita
