i don't know i thought it was interesting

a thought

(Oh wow she’s having Thoughts again what a concept)

I was having some conversations with friends in the last couple of days about some of the more… inventive prompts that people have been coming up with lately. And I know that some people are uncomfortable with some of them. And I wanted to know… what are everyone’s general thoughts on this?

It’s funny because just like a week ago I was all “oh I don’t want to write things that will trigger people or be harmful bc younger followers etc.” and now I’m… helping to run this thing that has come up with some ideas that I won’t touch with a ten-foot pole. Like others can have at it, that’s fine.

But also I know that… people will find this stuff whether or not I have anything to do with it. That doesn’t mean I feel comfortable perpetuating it.

My concern is not with like a/b/o or tentacles (which, someone is working on now???) or sex pollen. My concern is mostly with non-consensual stuff. Of course we’re going to tag everything appropriately and have trigger warnings for whatever we can think of - I try to do that anyway. And I’m not going to reblog the prompt fills on this blog (unless I wrote it, obvs), so it’s easy enough to just not follow the kink meme blog. But that doesn’t mean I’m not playing a role, so…

I don’t even know what I’m asking really, I’ve just been having conversations with people and I don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable, especially younger people, because I am an Adult, I’ve been around the block, but this can be… a thing for others.

But let me know your thoughts, if you want trigger warnings for anything in particular, etc.

I took a closer look at the cover of The Dark Prophecy and...

Do we know who this girl is?? My first thought was Calypso, since she’s definitely been confirmed as a character in the book, except I don’t think they’d have Calypso on the cover without Leo. I also don’t think it’s meg because the girl show here seems to old, plus she doesn’t match Meg’s description.

If you look even closer, you see she’s wearing a silver jacket, matching the exact description for the Hunter’s of Artemis uniform. It leads me to think she’s a hunter, or even Artemis herself!

anonymous asked:

So, you posted the quick history of Olexians quite a while ago, but I'd like to ask what it means by hoofed feet and animal heels?

there’s your arbitrary lieutenant fact of the day 

Sameen Shaw Appreciation Day

I loved how last month everyone got into paying tribute to ‘If-Then-Else’ with me so I thought I would give you all a heads up that I plan on doing something similar this coming Tuesday (February 21) to celebrate the anniversary of the first time our favorite compact Persian sociopath graced our screens. (‘Relevance’ aired on February 21, 2013)

I’ll be posting my favorite stills of Shaw all day as well as Shaw-centric posts on my other blog. I’d love to make a day of reveling in all her badass glory.

So dig up your favorite Shaw posts or make some new ones! 


It’s hammer time 🔨

Imagine if Yoosung was a deep route (spoilers)

The more I think and discuss about it, the more I wonder if things would’ve been more interesting (and logical?) had Jumin and Yoosung swapped places.

Because considering that:

  • Everyone believes his cousin, the person he looked up to, committed suicide
  • No one really knows why?
  • No body was found
  • V, the closest one to her, seems to be hiding something
  • No one in the RFA understands Yoosung’s paranoia
  • Even though he has all good reasons to be??
  • And his suspicions turn out to be correct???
  • And in the end Rika wasn’t dead - worse yet, she’s a cult leader

How does that not qualify him for a super heavy, emotional route? I feel like Cheritz missed out here by putting him into a baby-boy-needs-to-grow-up role, instead of having MC try to help him work through his grief and discover the truth behind it all.

With Yoosung as a deep route next to Seven, they could’ve divided the secret endings across both of them. As much as I love Seven, it would have been better for Yoosung to deal with discovering the big truth behind it all and who Rika really is. Seven already has enough on his plate when he finds Saeran and tries to help him. If they wanted Yoosung to come over more mature at the end of his route, the revelation of his hero actually being the villain would’ve done so perfectly.

And maybe Yoosung could’ve called the police and they lock Rika away, which would have been a very logical and satisfying conclusion. I assume Seven didn’t get police involved because of who he is but Yoosung doesn’t have anything to hide.

While Jumin has good reasons to be in deep route, I think it might be neat to see him in casual route. You would still deal with the arranged marriage and his father’s girlfriend; but with the added bonus of when Elizabeth goes missing, you help him find her and he’s super grateful and lots of cute romantic fluff happens. (Sorry Cheritz, but you’re not going to convince a cat-lover that, someone who loves cats as much as he does, would stop trying to find her.)

And it’s not like everyone’s favorite bad ending with him would have to be deleted - his possessiveness can still be a thing in casual route. Seeing as it also has things like Saeran breaking in and kidnapping you, discovering there’s a bomb where you live, Yoosung turning yandere in one bad ending and so forth, I don’t see how that would be an issue.

Also, don’t get me started on the secret endings jfc I hate them so much.

Do you wanna know THE sentence that changed my life forever and since nothing has ever been the same?

“ Agent Mulder. I’m Dana Scully, I’ve been assigned to work with you.”

So, yeah. This is what I am here for. To love this series, to love its actors and to connect with the others who has similar interests. We are here for the same things, let’s follow each other, let’s chat, debate and have fun. I’ve made some great friends on this website and I’d love more people to have this chance. Tumblr should be a fun place! If we disagree on important things, fine. We can respect that, respect each other and live in peace next to each other. “Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet.” 

magic was interesting, the way it manifested, the way it wove itself through the very fabric of the world. alec didn’t think he would ever understand it in all it’s vastness, in it’s endless possibilities. but what he did know was that it fascinated him - sending trails of shivers shooting up his skin - and that it was beautiful. beautiful kind of like a viper with fangs out ready to strike. beautiful like a flower unfurling at mornings first light, dew clinging to each petal. he didn’t notice the way it lingered at first, when it was simple spells like healing or even fighting magic, magnus’s muscles tense, eyes bright, fingers full of blue sparks. 

he noticed it later and found himself entranced, hovering by the door to the study, transfixed as a spell ended and magic trailed off of magnus’s strong shoulders. it would shimmer around him, hang in the air, hang at his fingertips and roll off his body as it moved. 

he would never have a relationship with magic as intimately as magnus did, he couldn’t have, but he’d find himself pressing close, fingers dragging at the very last of it, wanting to feel that tickly warmth. 

it was a bit silly wasn’t it because all magnus had to do was raise his hand and alec could have pressed his face into blue flames licking his cheek. but alec lightwood was a little bit stubborn and he wanted to feel it raw, after a summoning, after a fight when magnus wasn’t expecting it. magnus seemed to know though, the look in his eye when he’d glance back at alec, fingers still just slightly glowing. 

it was a bit like kissing an earthquake, kissing a hurricane right after, magic like a third party wrapping itself around alec as he pushed up close. and magnus would grin, big and easy into his mouth, little sparks crawling up alec’s forearms and tickling under his chin. 

sometimes it was like kitten licks, up his fingertips, little flickers of magic trailing in the air. but others it was a bonfire, the rumble of an avalanche, the crash of a wave hard enough to knock the breath straight out of your lungs and alec knew with his hands pressed against magnus’s chest all desperate that it was only a fraction of what bloomed inside this galaxy of a man. 

Rereading Interesting Times, I’m wondering if Rincewind might have had some part in the Glorious Revolution of the 25th of May (I’m assuming he was at least aware of it at the time), and if that might have been where he got some of his ideas about political revolutions and especially his cynicism about them?  

This isn’t exactly related, but it also made me think of this parallel between Rincewind in Interesting Times and Vimes in Night Watch:

with Vimes’ inner monologue: 

“People on the side of The People always ended up disappointed, in any case. They found that The People tended not to be grateful or appreciative or forward-thinking or obedient. The People tended to be small-minded and conservative and not very clever and were even distrustful of cleverness. And so the children of the revolution were faced with the age-old problem: it wasn’t that you had the wrong kind of government, which was obvious, but that you had the wrong kind of people. As soon as you saw people as things to be measured, they didn’t measure up.”

 and with Rincewind saying: 

“The best thing you can do with the peasants is leave them alone. Let them get on with it. When people who can read and write start fighting on behalf of people who can’t, you just end up with another kind of stupidity. If you want to help them, build a big library or something and leave the door open.”

and:

“Look,” he said, rubbing his forehead. “All those people out in the fields, the water buffalo people… If you have a revolution it’ll all be better for them, will it?” 

“Of course,” said Butterfly. “They will no longer be subject to the cruel and capricious whims of the Forbidden City.” 

“Oh, that’s good,” said Rincewind. “So they’ll sort of be in charge of themselves, will they?” 

“Indeed,” said Lotus Blossom.

“By means of the People’s Committee,” said Butterfly. 

Rincewind pressed both hands to his head. “My word,” he said. “I don’t know why, but I had this predictive flash!” 

They looked impressed. “I had this sudden feeling,” he went on, “that there won’t be all that many water buffalo string holders on the People’s Committee. In fact… I get this kind of … voice telling me that a lot of the People’s Committee, correct me if I’m wrong, are standing in front of me right now?” 

“Initially, of course,” said Butterfly. “The peasants can’t even read and write.”

 “I expect they don’t even know how to farm properly,” said Rincewind, gloomily. “Not after doing it for only three or four thousand years.”

so i did this thing, basically forcing adding my voice into the song. i recorded most part of the song and also the harmonies.  idek what to call it, a cover? a duet? a remix? but yeah. i just thought it’d be interesting do try something different.  so give it a listen if you want and let me know what you think about this :)

A quick sketch of Aoi Zaizen from Vrains, whom I believe is also the female lead? 

The first thought when I saw her face and hair design was that it seems more gender neutral compared to the previous female leads? Anzu also had short hair, but her pink uniform and hairstyle was a dead give-away that she’s female. (Nothing against guys with that though…). To me, Aoi has a hairstyle that could pass off as a guy’s in pokemon, not to mention that she’s wearing a very similar jacket uniform as Yusaku’s. And “Aoi” seems to be a name that guys can also have. Maybe I’m just overthinking this… (I guess what I meant to say is that I like it).

Also, I was reminded of this cute one (Chihiro) from Danganronpa when I first saw Aoi (personalities aside since we don’t know much about her):

When I was really curious about what archetype, my thoughts were: Please Konami, maybe something that’s different from fairy or plant type this time? =D
Yeah, keep dreaming Quarkie.

Just from the translations though, the trickster card effects seem cool (and do burning damage). I hope Aoi can continue on the trend from Arc - V that female lead characters can be good at dueling. Show them your badassness, pls >:3.

I don’t know if this has anything to do with each other at all, if it’s just an easter-egg or if it could mean something, but I think the name of that band is really interesting…

like many other fandom fic writers, I’m spending time today trying to wrap my head around how season two changes things…….or doesn’t. We got a lot of interesting new material yesterday; not all of it I agree with; but it’s canon? A couple other writers on tumblr have already responded with similar thoughts to mine, and I really strongly agree: I’m not one to disregard that, either. It’s a challenge to work around.

I’m not sure how this affects things, yet. Most of what I fling into fandom is AU in one aspect or another (AU series, obviously; to say nothing of Smol Shiro), but I do like to keep these grounded as much in canon/paralleling canon as much as possible. And this is…season two is so tightly wound, in terms of plot. Where do you fit things in? Season One was way more episodic, and a bit looser. Season Two drove us forwards practically from episode three, connecting and connecting and connecting. I haven’t done a full rewatch yet, so I could be wrong, but the Slots for Adventure Opportunities in Season Two are definitely smaller than in Season One. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just…a challenge.

This…I said yesterday this made my brain hurt? 

My brain still hurts.
