how much more canon can you get

anonymous asked:

Doea Caitlin swear a lot? I hadn't noticed. I know they're allowed to get away with words like "dick" too which most shows don't.

The CW tends to get away with liminal “swears” like douchebag, dick, and curses used for humor like “asshat” sometimes. There’s a limit on how many swears and the context they’re used in, I think, but I don’t know much about how the censors work (on any network specifically or just in general).

In looking for canon evidence, I suppose I shouldn’t say that Caitlin swears a lot or that much more than a few other characters, it’s just that she does swear and it’s something that goes unnoticed, I find? Or at least she did in season 1 when they were still getting a handle on their characters, it was just subtle. 

“How the hell are you gonna do that?” she asks when Barry suggests he can unravel Clyde’s tornado in 1x01. “Get your ass over there” she says with a smile in 1x02 once she’s on board with the Flash team dynamic. It’s possible they let her swearing go by the wayside after the first few episodes, but it was something that always stuck with me about her. It definitely comes back as Killer Frost (”you got your happy ending, everyone else be damned” - 3x07).

Felicity actually pulls it off too, where it goes largely unnoticed. She has line “ow! That was not as badass as I pictured” in 1x04.

For the record, Joe swears probably the most really, going by the transcripts. He manages to say “damn” a decent amount (both in a sentence and just on its own), which none of the other characters really do. He also says “hell” as in “shut the hell up” to Clyde Mardon in 1x01, and uses similar constructions with that curse like “you scared the hell out of us” etc. So those are his two most common swears, and he pulls his curses off with a sort of humor or incredulity, most of the time. He’s one of the only characters who also swears when he’s happy/mild/joking (about Eddie to Iris “then I’ll try my damndest not to shoot him” - 1x03).

Cisco is probably right behind Joe. He says “dick” and “douchebag” and “hell” and every now and then “damn”, so he swears more and with more variety than most of the characters, depending on what you count as a “swear”. Like Joe, a lot of them are for emphasis and humor, but he’ll say it as a threat (”I’d back the hell up” to Len in 1x04). Easily the most common one for him is “hell”, he gets a chance to use it in probably 40% of episodes in S1?

Hmmm, some others.

Len has said crap (”my grandfather used to take my sister and me to this diner, the motorcar. Food was for crap…”) but doesn’t swear very much, on the whole. Singh will say “where the hell is my report” for something but doesn’t swear too much, given the stress of his job. Wally sometimes says “hell” but not much else that I can recall. Same with Iris probably, there’s little evidence of cursing.

Barry barely swears at all, especially if you consider it as a percentage of his overall lines/words. “What the hell” when he’s riled up about something (typically with anger, like “what the hell were you thinking?” to Wally when he was worried about him doing dangerous stuff in 3x03), but not much more than that and honestly not very often. A “what the hell” line is often given to Cisco in his ear or beside him when it’s an expression of confusion or wonder. 

Most of the versions of Wells don’t swear either. Maybe Harry did, when pressed to anger, but I can’t recall any specific instances.

For the record, I can’t find a single instance of the word “shit” so it must be one the censors don’t like, or the writers don’t find use for. The only instance of “crap” was that line from Captain Cold that I mentioned, but it might’ve been used in episodes that weren’t in my semi-random sampling (I looked at the first half of season 1 then random episodes from the other seasons).

check out this podcast

it’s weird and wonderful and you get some A+ representation

like Cecil Gershwin Palmer the radio host you hear is a gay, jewish, chronically ill man

and like art wise there is no real canon designs for anyone, there are vauge descriptions, but that’s about it

also the cast and crew who make this show are all really awesome people

and the podcast is 100% free, you can pay for something for bonus things but anyways

Welcome To Night Vale

it’s really good

you have a canon gay couple who are so much more than being gay, you have characters coming to realize how they’ve grown up, you have a character that is literally a smooth river rock, and a five-headed dragon.

please listen to it

(don’t mind me just jotting down ideas for a oneshot I might write for @incaseyouart’s elf!phan au)

• established canon: dark elf dan and plant elf phil

• phil traveling south through (dark??) woods; searching for healing plants (unknown reason - most likely sick family)

• dan grumpy and patrols - finding a glowing phil

• phil is very quirky and happy, throws dan for a loop, but quickly warms up to him and even allows phil to call him “dan” (prefers howell)

(this point on is not established canon, own ideas)

• phil doesn’t really ask for dan’s aide, but after running into a Shadow Beast in the forest dan decides there’s no way in hell he’s leaving this glowing plant boy by himself

• dan pretends he’s just going along because “it’s his job to watch strangers that wander into the dark forest” but phil knows

• cue the pair going on adventures through the forest together, trying to find the ultra rare plant phil needs but also having an adventure along the way

• phil teaches dan about various plants and their properties, he can be a bit all over the place sometimes

• one time he gets genuinely upset bc a chipmunk wouldn’t take his nuts and dan laughed for the first time in months

• dan finds phil gazing at the stars and says the stars are much more visible here; dan lays down with him and he teaches phil about the stars

• one day it rains and (dan canonically doesn’t like the rain) phil yells with joy and runs out into it, dancing in the puddles

• “how can you not like the rain? it brings life and leaves a rainbow afterwards!”

• dan has a hollow branch that can be played like a reed flute and after enough begging from phil he plays songs for him

• turns out dan always wanted to play but the elders chastised him when he was young once so he became too afraid to pursue it

• once dan’s initial grumpiness fades, he’s curious about everything, including (canon: phil’s head plant)

• dan discovers that phil is actually very knowledgeable about many things and teaches phil in return about the life of dark elves, which phil finds fascinating bc dark elves tend to shun outsiders and not talk about themselves

• one day a large Shadow Beast attacks them, and dan displays his dark magic in front of phil for the first time to protect him

• dan was afraid to do so before in fear that phil would find his magic scary

• it’s quite the opposite; phil is ecstatic and gushes about the “telekinetic-like powers” that dan possesses

• dan is injured in the fight and finds that phil has magic of his own: healing magic

• phil (canon: he glows) also radiates heat, and after this realization dan soaks up as much of it as he can

• they meet a few other dark elves, and dan pushes phil behind him so he can speak to them. they’re wary of phil in the forest but dan gets angry when they demand him to get out.

• phil says quietly that perhaps he should just leave the forest but dan’s heart twists bc he didn’t realize how much he loved travelling with phil and grabs his hand, asking him to try and sort it out with his people

• dan talks to the others after cooling off and they reluctantly agree to let phil find his plant before he leaves

• dan is relieved but keeps an extra watch on phil after that, because he’s sure the rumor must’ve spread back at the village

• now the pair must find this plant quickly, and phil starts seeming more and more worried about whoever the plant’s for

• and anyway it’s pretty obvious I’m obsessed with this idea now so I won’t say anything more and start writing

Long Distance with Jimin

And now it is time for the first member of the maknae line, half of the Busan line, the other half of Yoonmin, our angel who looked s o fucking good with the pink hair cotton candy!chim was one of my faves it was so cute while it lasted, he always looks so good tbh, Park Jimin aka chim chim

  • So this series is gonna be about a long distance relationship (ldr for short) with the boys, this post is gonna more focused on the online relationship aspect but it’ll still be ldr!!
  • This is gonna involve youtuber!Jimin (here) to sum it up, he has a channel where he uploads anything he wants, covers, dances, vlogs, tags, just anything he’s in the mood for that day
  • So the story of how you two meet is that you meet over social media (youtube) you see one of his dance videos, mention how much you loved it in one of your videos, the subscribers tell Jimin and then shit just goes from there
  • He’d already been a fan of your channel and you loved his so the two of you start talking online and he’s s o friendly and sweet and you two get to know each other really well
  • The first two months of your relationship is long distance until you two can finally meet up
  • At first everything is platonic, you’re considering doing a collab together or just meeting up but you’re both too busy to fly out at first bc college and you’d need to figure out where you’d stay if you did fly out to see him
  • Like would you stay with him??? Is that okay with him?? Or should you find a good hotel nearby? Is that something you ask him, you don’t know what approach to take to it so you save it for when it comes up
  • But then things start getting more flirty bc chim can be a lil flirt when he wants to be, he’s shy and smol and cute but he goes from shy giggles and looking away to avoid people’s gazes to ripping his shirt off
  • So at first, he’s just being friendly, asking how your day’s going, what video you’re filming/editing, what your favorite movies are bc he wants to get to know you and you do the same with him
  • And slowly but surely, more flirty lines start up like he asks about your ideal first date, what you look for in a significant other and he starts telling you about his crush and it’s pretty obvious he’s trying to hint at you being the crush
  • “Actually, my crush kinda looks like you haha how ironic right??”
  • “Oh hey my crush has that same necklace what a small world”
  • He eventually gathers up the courage to Facetime/Skype you and ask you out and he has this whole date planned out in his head, he wants to fly out to see you and have the first date in person and he wants to explore your city with you
  • You say yes when he asks and he gets s o happy, you know that smile Jimin gets where it’s all teeth and most of the time he laughs and his eyes are so bright his entire face is just lit up and it’s so precious, that’s the smile he gets
  • You two were gonna meet up either way but the date is an extreme bonus
  • He sends you clips of his journey on snapchat, packing up his bag for the week he’ll be with you, heading to the airport with kook driving him, the both of them singing in the car on the way over, Jimin in the plane bc he plans to take a nap the entire time and wants to let you know that so you don’t text him and get !!! when he doesn’t respond
  • But he was lowkey up all night editing and packing and was way too excited to go to sleep how does one sleep when such exciting things are going on
  • You pick him up at the airport bc he obviously doesn’t have a car/ride in your city yet and he also doesn’t know his way around and you’re in awe at how handsome he is in person, cameras don’t do him justice tbh
  • He gives you a hug and it definitely lasts longer than a “friend” hug but he also doesn’t wanna make you feel uncomfortable bc you two had just met so he doesn’t stay in the hug as long as he would’ve liked to
  • It feels so comfortable with him like there is that first hour where you two are figuring each other like how close you can sit near each other without the other being uncomfortable, how affectionate you can be with each other, stuff like that
  • But Jimin’s a really affectionate person so it doesn’t take too long before he’s hugging you and laying his head or chin on your shoulder or leaning on you when he laughs and the relationship feels really natural, nothing is rushed or forced, everything happens at its own pace
  • You two spend the week together and he’s so much sweeter than you could’ve ever expected and he makes you laugh a lot and he’s always so giggly and smiley which makes you giggly and smiley and you both wish he could stay longer but he’s got school to go back to
  • The goodbye hug lasts a l o t longer than the first hug did and you can see how much more comfortable you two are with each other
  • My head canon is that Jimin is a nuzzler when he hugs people like you know how some people bury their face/nose in the other person’s hair or neck or shoulder, that’s Jimin all the way
  • His hugs are really tight and warm and just overall lovely and he would make such a great cuddler don’t even get me started on this shit
  • You promise to fly over to him in a couple weeks so it’s not gonna be too long until you two can see each other again but you’re in that honeymoon stage where you wanna talk to them and see them as often as you can so going long distance after you two just started to figure each other out is ouch
  • He leaves one of his favorite rings with you so you have something of his to wear and he gets one of your necklaces so you two have lowkey couple items
  • Jimin makes sure he calls/texts you everyday and he never ever (e v e r) forgets the good morning/night texts
  • There are so many nights where you two stay up way too late texting each other and you’re both smiling at your phones and Jungkook keeps teasing Jimin about it bc that’s the job of a best friend
  • He is a king of selfies, even his “ugly” selfies are cute like how he makes the weirdest angles that should not make anyone look good actually look really nice is beyond me I don’t get it I’m fully convinced he’s a secret model
  • He sends tons of selfies bc he wants you to know he’s thinking about you and he sends lots of pictures with Jungkook’s dog bc two puppies in one shot that’s a good deal
  • He also takes lots of pictures with the rabbit Tae gets and that’s equally as cute bc he keeps calling her his niece and he sends this one clip of her hopping around and you can hear his giggle in the background
  • Skype sessions with chim though, he’s in one of his really huge hoodies and he’s got a snack bc your Skype/Facetime sessions normally last a couple hours
  • The two of you will do anything from watching the same movie at the same time so you can watch it together to just talking to listening to music together to eating meals together, it’s always really chilled out but it’s nice to be able to spend that time together
  • He gets s o excited when you tell him you’re flying over, he just about cries bc he’s so so so happy
  • He makes sure his apartment looks cute before you get there bc the last he wants is for you to walk in and see a pair of his boxers on the bed
  • He’s just really excited and kook and tae are officially in charge of teasing him about it but they’re of course excited and happy for him
  • He buys a bouquet of your favorite flowers to greet you with and some sweets and he has this whole day planned for you bc he’s so ready to show you around Busan
  • “I’m on my way to the airport, I’ll be waiting!!!! I wore the shirt from my last video, you said it was cute, don’t worry I washed it”
  • “Jimin, my plane hasn’t even taken off yet”
  • “Well tell the pilot to hurry, I gotta hold my bby asap”

707!!!

….Ooooooh boy. Just a fair warning: I do love Seven. I love all the RFA. But I’m definitely going to come off a little salty when talking about him. Get ready for some unpopular opinions. 

general opinion: fall in a hole and die | don’t like them | eh | they’re fine I guess | like them! | love them | actual love of my life

hotness level: get away from me | meh | neutral | theoretically hot but not my type | pretty hot | gorgeous! | 10/10 would bang

hogwarts house: gryffindor | slytherin | ravenclaw | hufflepuff

best quality: Despite what he may think about himself, Seven really does love the RFA and will be their “savior” and protector 24/7. And he shows that by being there for and supporting them in any way he can from behind the scenes. 

The best example of this is the fact that Seven is one of the reasons why Zen got some needed exposure early in his career by helping a video of his go viral. Seven didn’t have to do that, and Zen never asked him to. He just did it because he knew Zen needed the boost. 

And both times Yoosung joined him to inspect Mint Eye, Seven always emphasized his safety. And when he couldn’t protect Yoosung from Unkown in Yoosung’s route, Seven was devastated.  

He may not be my top favorite, but I can talk a lot about this part of Seven’s character because it really is sweet. 

worst quality: I love Seven as a character, but his story…… 

I didn’t hate Seven’s route by the end, but I definitely felt underwhelmed. To be honest, I liked his route the least.

I really didn’t like the days when he was pushing MC away and being a huge asshole to her. I get that it’s typical: “I care but I’m dangerous so that’s why I’m pushing you away” act. BUT, if anyone treated me like that in real life, I’d walk right out. You want me to leave you alone? Fine. 

I know, I know. Jerk move. But, that’s why Seven isn’t the kind of guy for me. I just prefer people who are upfront and honest with me from the get-go.  

And the transition between that personality and to his more open one was really sudden, imo. Like, BAM, he’s nice because…He realized he loved you too much to keep being a jerk? I didn’t buy it…

Doesn’t help that I figured out his route and the main story from miles away, right when I first saw Unkown in Zen’s (my first) route. As a result, absolutely nothing about his route surprised me because it was all spelled out for me. I was hoping Cheritz would twist it up, but it played out exactly as I predicted. 

Everyone else’s route surprised me in different ways. But Seven’s? It felt like I’ve seen his story done many times before in the many manga I’ve read and forgotten about over the years (I talk like I’m old. I’m not that old.) 

ship them with: *crashes through your window* DID I TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE YOOSEVEN TODAY????

brotp them with: Like with Yoosung, I’m open to the idea of Seven and MC being besties. Even if they’re meant to be soulmates in-canon, I’m pretty sure platonic soulmates are a thing.

needs to stay away from:  We’re all thinking it. But I really think he should stay away from them for both their sakes. Because Seven doesn’t come off as the forgiving type. I don’t hate this character, but I’m pretty sure Seven would wreck them for what they did. 

misc. thoughts: I’m very happy to say that I’m not the only one who’s kind of peeved that a loud part of the fandom keeps declaring that “707 loves you in every route!!!!” The only route I can say without a doubt he has feelings for you is in Jumin’s, based on a few phone calls. The Casual Routes, though? Never. Saw. It. 

Also, I don’t like that he’s technically canon and how much more attention he gets compared to the others because he is. I never liked the idea of a canon route in any otome game. It makes the other routes feel obsolete because they’re not the “true” routes and just “what-ifs.” 

anonymous asked:

I want to start photography. Which camera would you suggest? Any tips? ((You're the only photograph I dare to ask bc you are nice and stuff and the internet is so big and Google isn't helpful.))

since apparently it’s a long rant day here it goes
it’s a tricky question because, you see, the photography projects I love can be made with a phone camera or for instance a disposable camera for 10$? but if you’re asking me what kind of camera you should buy for commercial work like if you wanted to shoot fashion or product photography or I don’t know - weddings and babies? - *shudders* then I’d go with something like canon 6D or something on the same level as this one - is it pretty expensive? yep. Is it still manageable to save up for? also yes. speaking from personal experience here, I’ve already mentioned it before but half a year of working as a barista at a coffee shop got me a canon 5D mark iii so everything is scientifically proven by me, all trustworthy information and such.
my advice is this - ditch the kit/starter lens that usually comes with the camera, just buy the body and one good fixed lens (fixed means it has no zoom, forget about that) it will teach you how to move a lot while shooting and not just stay rooted to the spot because your eye has to get used to finding interesting angles no matter what you shoot. my personal recommendation would be a canon 50mm f/1.4 (not 1.8, I know it’s cheaper but no).
also to be fair you can start making photographs with anything - developing an artistic eye is much more important than having an expensive camera, so if you have any option, be it your phone or your granddad’s old film camera - start shooting with that!

anonymous asked:

How lore friendly would it be for the player to become a lich in a TES game?

“Lich” in TES is a pretty vague believe it or not. There are a ton of different types of liches. It’s like every fucker who ever kissed a skeleton suddenly thinks they can become an undying warlord.

The traditional liches that appear in Oblivion, Tribunal, ESO, etc, are necromancers that have bound their souls into a piece of jewelry called a phylactery (though how canon this is these days I’m not sure, since you can bash a lich’s shit in with just a hammer without much trouble). But lich in TES more or less just means “undead mage”, or not even.

The Dragon Priests in Skyrim are liches, albeit ones who gain their power from feeding on the life force of their followers.

On the dubiously canon side, fabricants can have their bodies accidentally turned back on by latent magics, which are called Rewounds.

If you want to get TRULY technical (lich = mage kept alive by necromancy), all Telvanni magelords are liches. Their extreme age is attributed to benign necromantic arts, which might also be why so many of them are fucking insane (except for Fyr, he gains his eternal gdilf abilities from being a cool guy). 

There’s plenty of examples I’ve missed of other liches and stuff.

Of additional note is that liches are NOT inherently bad in TES. The lich union in Tribunal are followers of Sotha Sil and are actually trying to protect the Mazed Band from falling into the wrong hands, given its nature as the most OP artifact in all TES.

So, @lenaluthordefensesquad sent this post to me and asked for my thoughts on the comments. Now this petty back and forth between supercorp and sanvers is something I have been aware of and seen but have purposefully tried to avoid as much as possible and not engage with. However, Meadow asked me to make a post because apparently I said some things worthwhile. So here’s the thing. I ship both supercorp and sanvers (although I still tag it detective danvers because I am a little petty myself but i’m not gonna talk about that here it’s irrelevant). So keep that in mind because I might sound harsh towards sanvers here. Basically, my problem with the comments on that post are that they are trying to blame something that they perceive as a problem on the existence of a non canon ship. So, my response to seeing the post is this: First of all, to say that in general Supercorp gets more screentime than Sanvers gets is just untrue. Lena has only been in a handful of episodes, most of which she had very little screentime. The fact that we finally got a Lena centric episode does not mean that supercorp is suddenly getting more screentime than sanvers. The other issue is that, the writers of the show are not putting scenes with Kara and Lena in with the non canon ship in mind. Lena and Kara’s friendship in and of itself, without the existence of the ship is IMPORTANT to the show.  The show is called supergirl, and while yes Kara and Alex are equal Lead characters, the main storyline is not about the romances and it shouldn’t be. Sanvers has always been a side plot for this reason and will probably continue to be. Lena’s episode relates to the larger action portion of the plot that the show has always focused on where Kara and the DEO are fighting bad guys, in this case Cadmus (idk if i spelled that right, but I don’t care). Also, it is important that Kara have friends on the show who are not just the boys that fall in love with her. In season one she had Cat as a friend and Alex as her sister. In season 2 if Lena was not allowed to develop this relationship with Kara, Kara would be down to NO female friends, and Alex being the only other woman she really interacts with often. So Lena and Kara’s relationship, even without the existence of supercorp is integral to Kara as a character and as the lead character. 

If Sanvers shippers truly want to complain about them not getting much screentime, there is a whole host of other things that are more responsible for that, that would be legitimate to criticize. Mon-El becoming more of a lead character and getting the screentime of a lead character is one of them. But I think we need to remember that this is an ensemble show, and it is not the Sanvers show. Sanvers has had and will continue to get some centric episodes where they get a lot of screentime, but because of the size of the cast that is not going to happen every episode. I also have a HUGE problem with the superiority complex shippers of canon ships seem to have. I honest to god always thought it was just a hetero shipper issue. But it looks like in the microcosm of fandom we are having a similar thing happen with the relationship between canon and non canon f/f shipping that has happened between say, white cis gay men and the rest of the LGBTQ+ community. It’s like once they finally get to be part of the elite canon group who has the power of writer validation behind them, they want to shit all over the people who don’t have that luxury. This is something I really truly do not understand. It used to be that ALL f/f ships were noncanon because we did not GET to be canon. and it is fantastic that we now once in a while get canon ships, but fandom was created and developed for the specific reason to transform the canon text into something new, to explore things within the story that do not get explored by the actual writers. This is our history. Please do not forget that. Fan works exist to take a story places that the mainstream media and the writers of the show won’t go. So to come in and hijack a post made by a supercorp shipper as a JOKE based on the fact that Katie McGrath has played many gay characters in the past and seems to have ridiculous chemistry with other women, melissa included, is uncalled for and rude and not actually justified. Supercorp is not canon. We know that. We KNOW that Alex and Maggie are in fact more gay than Lena because the show acknowledges their gayness, but we are allowed to joke about the chemistry and how flirty Katie McGrath is without have a horde of petty sanvers shippers jumping on us. 

And I have even more so a problem with this type of fan who would comment on posts in this way, because they seem to be the same kind of people who joined the fandom ONLY because they heard there was a canon f/f ship in the show, but instead of joining the fandom and appreciated supergirl as a whole and respecting the fandom environment and works created previously, they came in and shit on everyone in the existing fandom. They disregard season one and it’s importance, and many of them came in and shit on the General Danvers shippers for shipping a ship that has existed since the beginning of the show because it wasn’t the current canon ship and astra is “Evil and dead”. Which btw, General Danvers was my only ship on supergirl for quite a long time. And in that same vein, Supercorp actually existed as a ship long before Sanvers existed, and even longer before Sanvers became canon, so to suddenly feel that Lena and Kara’s relationship, which has been developing since the very first episode of this season, shouldn’t get screentime because sanvers is the canon ship is just petty. You want them to give more screentime to their canon f/f ship, you feel that they hype it up to much for the amount of follow through you get? fine, critique that about the writers, but do not blame supercorp and it’s existence and do not go hijacking supercorp shippers posts to be petty. I am not here for ship wars between f/f ships. The only ship wars I can at all justify are the ones where it is a non canon f/f ship pointing out the how a canon f/m ship is heteronormative or fans who happen to ship an f/f pairing critiquing an f/m ship because it is written in a sexist manner or a harmful manner. And even then, I do not support post hijacking or message spamming to the shippers of those ships. Otherwise, there is absolutely no reason that ships should be fighting and jumping on eachothers posts just to be petty, especially not between to f/f ships. So, that’s it. That’s my opinion on the “discourse”. This ended up being a hell of a lot longer than I expected, but I think everything I said was important and relevant. Please be respectful to one another. Other f/f ships are not the enemy here.

voltron comic dub auditions!

so i’ve been thinking about doing these for a while, but it only occurred to me now that i could make a tumblr post promoing it, haha. anyway, what i’m doing sound exactly like it does on the tin: voltron comic dubs! 

have you ever seen a voltron comic and thought: “oh man i’d love to hear that actually read out by the voice actors”? then this isn’t directly for you, bUT if you’re one of the people who would want to voice act that yourself, then this is for you!

HOW TO AUDITION: 

  • send me a tumblr message with an mp3 file on a hosting site of your choice with your lines for whoever you want to dub from here and  here and if you’re doing allura, from here. it’s important that you do both so i can get a feel for how close you can get to canon voices but also how you would interpret your character’s inflections, emphasis, etc. 
  • fill out this form: (x)
  • that’s pretty much it

RULES: 

  • please, no antis! this is going to be an all inclusive group, and if any ships make you uncomfortable, then it’s probably best for you to not audition bc we might be doing comics with ships that youre uncomfortable with
  • if you can, please reblog this post so i can reach out to more people! i’d really appreciate it if you did
  • even if you don’t think you’re not good enough to audition, try anyway! it never hurts to try :3
  • have fun!! no matter what, i think this is the most important part of this whole shebang

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE: 

  • it’s okay if we have multiple voice actors for one character! in fact, this is what i’m hoping to be able to have to lessen the workload for some of the voice actors
  • there’s nothing i wouldn’t do shipwise, but i have a very heavy klance bias, so there’ll probably be a lot of klance if the va’s also want it. 
  • honestly, all that’s going to be dubbed will rely on what the va’s want.
  • i’m a pretty capable editor myself, so i don’t need an editor, but it’d be nice to have another one to help me
  • if you need/want examples of comic dubs, i suggest you check out these videos: (x) (x)
  • auditions will end mid may! I don’t really have a set date right now; it all depends on how many auditions i get before then. after that i’ll have a week grace period/week to look over auditions and choose people

Good luck!

edit: added canon line auditions whoops

Valentine's Day HC

~Spread the Love!! How will the heroes respond to getting valentines?

Reaper:

  • All the love gives him hives. He’s genuinely disgusted by all of you. 
  • Deep down though, if you do give him a valentine, he’ll be so happy. All he ever wants is for someone to look past the Edgelord™ and see the slightly less grumpy Edgelord underneath it all.

  • He might be blushing, he might not, who knows with that visor on. (He’s totally blushing)

Am I Wrong?

         He sauntered into the room with an air around him that reeked of…arrogance. Pride. His walk boasted that he owned the room; any room that he entered. He made his way to the table in front of you and turned on his heel. He straightened his tie and looked you up and down, pleased that the restraints around you, holding you to your elegant dining chair, were working. You gazed at him, his proud stance in his pristine, gray suit. His pitch black, short hair that swept over one eye had a slight curl at the ends. The dark area under his eyes looked unnatural…at a glance they looked like the eyes of a hard-working business man. Upon closer inspection, they looked…demonic. A gentle smile graced his face. He popped his neck from one side to the other; he had a prominent square shin decorated with well-kept facial hair.

         Finally, he spoke. His words were calm…comforting. “It’s been a while, hasn’t it?” You’re too afraid to answer. He sat in the chair opposite to you and placed his hands in his lap. “You look stunning.” You do not reply. He chuckles. “I know a lot of you are scared right now. Terrified to see me…but I know for a fact that there are plenty of you that are elated…am I wrong?”

         He stood and straightened his suit jacket. He put his hands behind his back and paced in front of you.

         “I know you must be well aware that I can have anything I want…” His smile was gone, replaced by a face that quietly studied its surroundings. Eyes that searched deep inside for the next words to use. “This suit. This mansion. My many associates…” He stopped directly in front of you again with a furrowed brow. His composure was slipping. “Then why…can’t I,” his eyes became black as coal; the lights in the room flickered, “HAVE YOU?!” He slammed his hands on the table, breathing heavy. He looked around the room and sighed, straightening back up, adjusting his suit, his cuff links, his tie.

         From the darkest corner of the room came a chuckle…followed by high pitched ringing and television static. He whipped around to face the noise; his hands quickly clenched and shook. From the shadows came a man clad in all black; black denim, black t-shirt. His hair was short, colored a dark, forest green and his eyes had a black sclera and bright, green iris’. His pointed ears were pierced with black gages. You stare unbelieving at the gaping wound in his neck…he brandished a knife and pointed it at your captor.

          “Because you’re a child, Dark.” This voice was so chaotic; it gurgled and glitched with the hint of an Irish accent…but it was all over the place. High pitched, deep; sometimes it felt as if several people were talking when he spoke. It was impossible to follow.

         “This one is MINE, you imp.” The black-haired man, Dark, growled, stepping forward. “You had your turn, Anti. Leave.”

         The green haired man, Anti, appeared behind Dark and cackled, brandishing his fangs. He slipped the knife right underneath Dark’s chin, it’s blade mere millimeters from his neck.

         Dark unclenched his fists. He stood straight again and gained his composure. He was much calmer, now…more annoyed than anything, it seemed. Like they had both been through this before.

         “Anti. I am in no mood for your games.” Dark sighed, eyes closed. “And if you taint this suit with Sean’s blood, I will end you.”

         Anti glitched away and re appeared atop the table in front of you. He pointed the knife at your face, grinning wildly. “We can both play, you know. It’s not a contest.”

         Dark grinned and stood beside his…comrade? He smirked. “I do suppose you’re right.”  

*~*~*~*~*~*~**~~*~*
Eh, just something I had the itch to write; it’s awfully short. This Dark and this Anti are much different than the ones I write but these two are more…canonical. Even though there is no canon Dark or Anti because we all sort of came up with them. I’m getting off track- thank you so so so much for reading! I hope y’all liked it. Let me know how I can improve or what else you’d like to see from me!

anonymous asked:

How can someone "misuse" Death of the Author to disregard Word of God? Isn't the whole point of Death of the Author just to say that Word of God is just another interpretation and therefore not canon?

No, it’s what can be invoked during ANALYSIS to explore the work within it’s own confines separated from external influences like the authors personality, life, and statements. It’s a discussion point when doing academic literary analysis and nothing more.   

Now it often get’s invoked to argue headcanon as fact (no matter how much it goes against established fact) and in even worse case accuses works and authors of racism/predjuces based on personal opinion of it’s implications and not the content of the work itself.

When you get down to brass tacks: I kind of hate it on principal for often getting used as just another excuse for pompous lit-students and their professors to further demonstrate how far they can crawl up their own asses and avoid reality.

Good idea that often goes to shit in practice.  

anonymous asked:

Can I request Elgang reaction on their April Fools costume (maid uniform for boys and butler uniform for girls)? Thank you

Elsword is sort of shocked.  And humiliated.  Really humiliated.  He makes the best of it, though.

Aisha is thrilled that she gets to wear PANTS FOR ONCE IN HER CANON LIFE DO YOU REALIZE HOW RARE THIS IS.

Rena is pretty much Aisha, but with more admiring of her tailcoat thrown in there.

Raven is mortified.  He tries to make the most of it, but…. this skirt is so short….

Eve sees nothing to be ashamed of in crossdressing.  Clothing is clothing.  Why is there a gender inherent in it?

Chung has crossdressed before, in a few notable occasions.  He’s not really keen on this short skirt and servile outfit, but…

Ara is thrilled that she has pockets for once.  She actually runs around putting stuff in her pockets and screeching about it.

Elesis thinks she looks dapper and tries flirting with everyone.  She fails, but it’s not because of the outfit.

Add flat-out refuses to wear it.  Nope.  He was already a slave, he’s not putting himself back into a humiliating and servile position.

Lu isn’t happy at all.  A demon queen shouldn’t be wearing the costume of a human butler!  CIEL- oh. Ciel.  Please put pants on.

Ciel isn’t too thrilled, but he’s not particularly embarrassed either, until Lu plainly tells him that she can see up his skirt.  The curses of being tall while your partner is short…

Rose appreciates the aesthetic of a butler, though it’s hard to fight in, and wonders if the Princess would like seeing her like this.  Zero is happy he’s not in a maid outfit.

Ain has no concept of gender roles, no concept of clothing fitting gender roles, and his only comment about the outfit is how curiously revealing it is.

top 5 fanfics?

YOU BEAUTIFUL SO AND SO

okay, i’m 100% unsure of protocol on this so after much thought i’m gonna give you five fics that i think people should read and don’t get the cred they deserve 

so here are some hidden gems, in my opinion 


1. Let’s Start Right Now [alterocentrist]
I can’t explain to you how into this I was. Am. Will always be. The following one shot is honestly too good for words. The author understands how real relationships work. It comes across.

2. if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only be love [geoclaire]
The only canon compliant fic I love. This one hurts in all the right places and make you feel good and tired and lovely.

3. Miscommunication [mad2thebone]
If you asked me my fave fic ever, it is this one. This is it. It’s so in character and in depth and just…UGH. I can’t write about it because it 100% speaks for itself. 

4. Beautiful Stranger [daisyfalls]
Wanna ache all the time? Read this. Another great one that totally gets how being in a relationship is and the small bits and bobs that are so complicated and confusing. You could argue that Vignettes is better -  but fuck, what a great place to start.

5. pierce the room the a cannonball  [camphollstein]
THIS IS IT. The perfect Carmilla AU. Honestly, why do I write any, because THIS. IS. IT. 


SO THAT’S IT. ENJOY. HAVE FUN. GET TESTED. YOU DO YOU. 

okay who would like if i started up a digimon request blog up on here?

i know i have the thread on with the will, but the tumblr would be exclusively canon digimon and possibly (?) my own digifakes :v

This has been on my mind for ages now and really, how many TV  shows have more than one queer couple at the same time? And how many characters were bi? There has been a severe lack of bi representation and you can probably see where this is going. I’m talking about SuperCorp, the whole and powerful ship. If it became canon with Kara as bi, imagine what it would do for the LGBT community. 2 canon, lesbian couples, one with the main fucking character as bi. That’d be awesome. Lena and Kara have so so sO much more chemistry then m*n-el and Kara do. You can see that in the way they look at each other and how much Lena flirts also she filled Kara’s office with flowers like try to give me a heterosexual explanation for that. An example of the Kara/Lena dynamic being better than the Kara/M*n-el one is when super girl was getting tortured by Lillian, Lena screamed out not to hurt her, where as when she was getting electrocuted in front of m*n-el he did nothing. I personally think that because they already have one queer couple, CW think they’ve ticked that box and can move on to more heterosexual couples which is pretty fucking annoying (m*n-el and kara are heaps better off as siblings anyway). Having 2 queer couples represented positively on quite a popular show would be such an awesome step for LGBT people in a show that already promotes queer people positively. So seriously, if anyone from CW is reading this please take it into account. Thank you and goodnight.

@monkshoodr: Ginny moves out of the hotel and can’t get room service, so Mike volunteers to teach her to cook.

I’m not sure how we, as a fandom, decided that Ginny’s a terrible cook, but I love it.

read it on ao3


“You’re hiring caterers for your housewarming party?”

Ginny tossed him a look and shrugged, going back to emptying out another box. This was the third, as far as Mike could tell, that was full to the brim of lycra-based work out gear. Yet, Ginny’s dresser was still only half-full. He shook his head and went back to folding her fitted sheets. 

When he’d agreed to help Ginny move into her brand new condo, he’d thought it would involve driving some stuff around, carrying a few boxes to spare her still-healing arm. What he hadn’t expected was to give into her kicked puppy expression and actually help unpack her stuff. He knew he should’ve stayed away when he found out the computer geek had broken things off. It would have been so much easier to resist if he’d known someone would be around to help her out. With Blip and Ev out of town, that apparently fell on him, now.

Well, at least they’d already set up the living/dining room. They just had to tackle her bedroom and Mike could escape. 

(All he knew at this point was that he was eternally grateful that her bed had yet to be delivered. If he was going to play house with Ginny it was only self-preservation to stay far, far away from horizontal surfaces.)

anonymous asked:

Hi, I have some questions regarding the Batfam canon, hope you could answer me: How much does Bruce actually care about Jason/ Red Hood? Are they perhaps as distanced emotionally as they are physically now, after all that has happened between them? Also, if you could tell me how does Jason feel about his brothers in canon, does he even consider them his brothers and his family? Would he do anything for them? Thanks.

Sure! I’ll do my best to answer this for you.

So when it comes to Jason’s canon relationships with the rest of the Batfam, you really have to differentiate between Jason in the old canon and Jason after the New 52 reboot that happened in 2011, as they’re vastly different. And even within each individual canon comics are complicated with different writers applying their own personal interpretations to characters sooo…

Pre-52 Jason did not have great relationships with any of the Batfam. And in this canon arguably did not look at any of them except Bruce (and Alfred) as family, except to use the term brother in a mocking sense. He resented Dick for being ‘the good son’ and felt jealousy over the fact that he never felt like he could measure up to him, which was mostly Bruce’s fault for comparing Jason to Dick so much when he was Robin (not a great strategy to take with a kid who already had so many self-confidence issues, Bruce). Though they did have some good bonding moments before Jason died, and Dick did grieve for him after he found out about it, Jason was just too angry and bitter over Bruce’s actions to ever really come around to him, and since pre-52 Jason was also an unrepentant killer that soured Dick’s opinion of him as well.

On top of all that, it didn’t help that, probably correctly, Jason assumed that if Dick had been the one the Joker murdered Bruce would have killed him.

With Tim he simply despised for ‘replacing’ him as Robin, though he also admitted to respecting him for his abilities. Some writers tried to show this changing towards the end of the pre-52 canon with Tim offering Jason another chance to redeem himself after he was arrested and put in prison. But then Grant Morrison’s run happened, and Tony Daniel completely fucked Jason’s chances for redemption over with Battle for the Cowl *bitter forever about that storyline*.

According to Judd Winick (still arguable the best writer for Jason) he did like Damian, though the same prooobably wasn’t true in reverse. He also never met Cassandra or Stephanie, and only worked with Barbara on one case when he was Robin. So not much of a relationship there.

Post-52 and Rebirth Jason on the other hand gets on much better with the Batfamily as a whole. Mostly thanks for DC deciding to keep him in a firmly anti-hero role rather than randomly swerving him into villain territory from time to time. Jason in this continuity is a lot less bitter as a whole, and also largely calmed down from his initial rage over his death thanks to having friends and a team in the Outlaws (whereas pre-52 Jason had no friends or anyone he could rely on until Scarlet appeared, and even then that relationship wasn’t great). He’s also stopped killing, which has vastly improved things.

The Robins openly refer to each other as brothers in this canon, will work together and go out of their way to help one another when they need it. Jason probably digging his heels in and complaining about it the whole time, of course, but he would do it XD He also got super pissed at Dick for faking his death to go play secret agent in this canon, grieved for Tim over his apparent death to the point he couldn’t face going to the funeral, and was even willing to risk his life going to Apokolips to help Bruce recover Damian’s body from Darkseid. So yeah, much better all round.

Bruce (this had to be saved till last because just Jason and Bruce, man)

Bruce absolutely loves Jason. In any continuity, he loves him and any idea that he doesn’t is purely born of Jason’s own insecurities. To him, Jason is his son, and even when he was back and killing people in the pre-52 that didn’t change anything. These panels of Bruce hallucinating Jason (so you know what’s being said is Bruce’s honest thoughts) are very good at demonstrating that. And it’s arguably why he never tracked down Jason himself to put him in prison after the events of Under the Hood - bizarrely, they never really interacted again in pre-52 canon after that arc which… *sigh* just so many missed opportunities DC.

In current comics canon, after the reboots, Jason and Bruce’s relationship is in a much better place and continuing to heal. Something which is wonderfully demonstrated in the issue #6 of RHATO Rebirth, you can see how much better they’re getting along. Again, in large part because Jason is no longer killing people, but also because Bruce is being more understanding of the fact that Jason is his own person, different from him or any of his other kids. It’s really heartwarming to see.

I hope this helped, and I’d also highly recommend checking out comic-commentary’s meta directory, as she’s done a lot of pieces on Jason’s relationships with the rest of the Batfam, his personality, history etc. that are all backed up with comic panels from canon (though be aware, most of it is in regards to the pre-52 version of Jason).

As it turns out, I just reached my next milestone, and while follower count means little to nothing to me, it’s really nice to know that people actually want to write with my dumbass!! I’m so grateful for everyone who has supported this blog and by extension me, because i often find myself wondering if it’s worth it when there are so many other Mikasa blogs out there that play her closer to the canon representation of her. But everyone so many have been supportive of me for so long over here and I cannot thank you guys enough, this means so much more than I can express in words!

Let’s get into the big thank you’s before I get too carried away lol!

Faves!

@ruckgrat || Of course Victor is right up here at the top, does anyone expect any less from me anymore? Victor, sweetheart, my twin, and the biggest gay ass I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, do you know how much you mean to me? You are always there for me when I need someone and not once have to asked for something in return. I know I can turn to you when I need someone, you’ve helped me get through some of the toughest times and you remind me why I’m grateful to have not died yet. Life is not always so kind to you, I know, but I’m always here with dumb shit to sent and distract you with, to remind you that you have your own Erwin Smith waiting for you, and to be here to support you the way you have me. On a bit more relevant note, you’re the one who talked me into making this blog and the reason I’ve stuck around for so long. Honestly, you’re the best twin/brother/bff anyone could ever ask for <3 other than that one time you didn’t tell me you got engaged

@humanwrath || Now it’s time for the emo™. Here’s another reason I stuck around on this blog, Rogue. My emo sweetie, I know things are not always positive on your end, and you’ve gone through some hard times, but just remember, you are the only person I know on this planet to make a big deal over this oversized ken doll and if you weren’t around who would represent your son? I appreciate every single meme you send me, every little spongebob clip, all your talk about jager, hell even all the hate you give Mika for liking Jean. Things wouldn’t be the same here without you, I think I speak for everyone when i say that <3

 @deimpetueux || HERE’S SOMEONE WHO SUPPORTS MY INTENSE LOVE FOR JEANKASA AND PROVIDES ME WITH MY FIX OF SAID SHIP!! Right here we have a babe, one who supports my shitty fuckin writing and lets me yell at them about my fave ship ever. But beyond that, you’ve listened to me talk about some personal heavy shit and offered a shoulder for me to lean on in hard times and I really appreciate that sweetie. Thank you so much for being here for me.

@vongute​ || Marco bae, I know I’m not always the best at getting back to replies oTL, but you’ve let me rant and rave about my ocs and even let me have a thread with my BBY and Marco which is just lakdj;lfkansd;lkfj!!! We may not talk a lot on a personal level, but we are getting there! Thank you for supporting me and my blog and god your Marco is just so wonderful I hope we can write more soon and talk a bit more ooc!!
