Hak is not a Nice Guy™: A rant by me

**Note: I apologize in advance if this comes across as angry and vitriolic, but I really like Hak a lot. I think he’s a wonderful leading man who genuinely cares and respects Yona in ways I so rarely see in popular media, so to see him being criticized for not being a Nice Guy™ really, really grinds my gears and I felt it necessary to say something. So… yeah. 

So I go on a manga reading website to read AnY, and in one of the forum I see a great big jumble of bullshit masquerading as a forum post. I’ll spare you guys most of it, but I screenshotted the part that made me livid because, especially for the anime but also for the manga, I see the same sort of reasoning ALL THE TIME.

Not only is this just…. super gross generally, but it shows a fundamental misunderstanding of Hak as character. Hak is not a Nice Guy™ who is caring for Yona with ulterior motive of “Oh, if I just stick around long enough and remain hopeful, someday she’s gonna fall for me, right??” No. NO NO NO NO. That is not Hak. That was never Hak. He is not here at Yona’s side hoping and waiting for the moment that she’ll someday love him, and it sure as  hell isn’t the reason he’s still there after all this time. Does he love her, and did he try to make such apparent to her originally? For sure. Does he believe if he just remains persistent, she’ll someday love him back? No. Nooooooo. NO.

Sometimes I wonder if people can see how well done Cullen’s story is. Addiction is an ugly, ugly thing, and somewhere in between all of the withdrawal angst and comfort and meta analysis and stuff… I just kind of think of how *important* what he is trying to do is. 

The funny thing about addiction is that you have to really want to beat it. You have to make yourself push past the days where it is just too hard, when your own body is actively fighting against you. Not only does Cullen do that, but he does it when surrounded by his own fears (out of control magic, demons, abominations, plus the lyrium that must be all over skyhold for the Inquisition’s Templars) and while leading an entire fucking army.

So it’s not just fodder for the angst canon, it’s not just a difficult thing to do. You are literally at war with your own mind and body, and I sometimes get a little distressed when I hear that the Cullen romance is “boring” or “vanilla” or “cliche.” Aside from the fact that not everything has to be melodrama and kink and ~unusual,~ being involved and caring for a recovering addict (because they are always recovering, the temptation is always there) is never “boring,” and shouldn’t be reduced to a “cliche” just because the character isn’t an overtly special snowflake.

I am constantly amazed by how responsive Steve and his team are to this fandom. They watch us and they LISTEN to us, and then ACT quickly on it. 

After the shirts sold out quickly today, they have now put the shirts on pre-order so that all the fans that missed out can get a shirt. Not only that, they have added sizes XL and 2XL as requested by fans, and are now also addressing requests for shipments to other parts of the world. 

They have really taken the fans’ feedback and acted on it. Impressive! The 1D fandom just isn’t used to this kind of reaction from the artist and his team (or any reaction at all, really)!

More importantly, Steve’s account itself has made sure to tweet out all this information!

This is what a good team does. Hopefully, Louis is taking pointers!

Bravo! This is what good work from a good team looks like!


Okay but guys. Look at what my son wrote for his school project. The husband asked if there was anything he wanted to ask her. I did not suggest it. I was thinking it, but I did not say a word. The Scorbus is strong with this child.

No cons nearby, yet I still managed to spot the elusive Wild Human Sans at a local Subway near my house. How do I know this is human Sans?

1. He never took his hands out of his pockets while he ordered, even when he was pointing at things! (EDIT: He took them out when I took my pictures, apparently! Eee!)

2. He got chipotle sauce and Subway vinaigrette TOGETHER on his sub. I assume this is because they don’t have ketchup.



I’ve been thinking about this megane/ahoge crossover for literal months and now I’ve finally drawn it I can be put to rest

Hi! I am a newbie in the fma fandom and I just wanted recommendations for blogs to follow? I'm sorry if I'm bothering you but you seem pretty nice whenever I see you on my dash so I tried to gather my courage and ask. I hope it's no trouble

You’re not bothering me at all and it’s definitely no trouble! 

Here’s most of the blogs I follow for FMA. A lot of them are mixed-fandom but most people have it in their description if they post only/mostly FMA. I vetted it a little bit and tried to only put people who have been active in the last two weeks. Also, these are in order chronologically based on when I followed, so it’s not a reflection on whose blog I like most/least. I hope this helps!

Garak’s not Gay

Hi fandom I am here to talk about something important today.

Elim Garak isn’t gay.

Please stop saying Garak is gay.

In show canon he has a female interest (Ziyal) whether fandom likes it or not. It happened. Garak was interested. He was lonely.

In book canon (ASIT) Garak was interested in males and females.

Andrew Robinson has stated that Garak is ‘omni sexual’ and that gender is a non-issue for him.

For that matter Bashir isn’t gay either.

Both of them are pansexual or bisexual.

Why is this important? Because bi and pan people get erased ALL the time.

Fandom do right and stop calling Garak gay. He’s not.

Welcome to my SU AU(actually I don’t know if anybody did this yet)

Meet Bilbo. Guess what his gem is.

Here we have Bilbo defending Thorins gem. Thorin got poofed by Azog.

My poor baby’s gem got cracked when he got chased by Smaug.

Personal headcanons:

-all the people in Middle Earth have gems. They still have their own names and being called by your gem is rude(at least concerning hobbits) and considered classicist

-hobbits usually cover their gems. that is why you don’t see bilbos gem(it’s also very convenient for him since they’re LOOKING FOR THAT FRIGGIN GEM IN HIS CHEST!!!)

-bilbos summoned weapon is sting(surprise!), thorins is his shield(his gem is on his forearm)

-after the first run-in with azog everyone is worried that thorins gem got damaged. but bilbo got there in time :D cue thorins regeneration on the carrock

-orcs, goblins and the other creatures of morgoth are artificial and corrupted gem. Corruption can manifest differently in this verse (they can still be intelligent and stuff, hence azog and shit)

-Bilbos gem/the Arkenstone(there, I said it) only starts corrupting the people in his vicinity AFTER it got cracked. That’s why Thorin fell so fast ( jep, goldmadness is corruption here). Also why the shire isn’t full of corrupted gems.

BILBO DIES ENDING: Bilbo get’s shattered. Yes, sorry, just ignore this part if you want. He gets shattered by Azog when he distracts him to save Thorin. With the Arkenstone shattered Thorin and co.’s corruption disappears.

EVERYBODY LIVES ENDING: Bilbo only get’s poofed. Thorin shatters Azog and pulls a Rose Quartz/Rapunzel on Bilbo’s gem. BOOM. CORRUPTING GEM CORRUPTS NO LONGER; EVERYONE GETS DE-CORRUPTED AND THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER, GOOD NIGHT, THE END. also imagine the awesome fusions. BAGGINSHiELD FUSION!!! OH GOD!!
