i feel like this right about now

I feel like Alis is really going to help Feyre now that she’s gonna be back there in ACOWAR. She told Mor to take her right? Because she knew it was best for her. She actually cares about Feyre as a person and not just as a decorative ornament to be by the tool’s side all the time. She’s gonna help us keep in contact with Rhys and the night court or something. She’ll know something’s not right when Feyre willingly comes back and is in the best shape she’s ever been in.

I woke up today at 2:30 in the afternoon, immediately thinking “GOD I love JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure but I feel strangely frustrated about it right now” so y’all are getting a wall of text about it.

I will forever be disappointed in the way Araki wrote Jotaro before part 6.

I did like Jotaro during parts 3-4 (mainly because a) he’s attractive, b) he’s voiced by Daisuke Ono, and c) his assholeish/badass moments were so tropey and over-the-top that it was amusing) but I never truly LIKED him as a character until part 6, when we saw how his stoicism and overpowered stand completely backfired on him and made him weak and more realistic.

Most of his character before part 6 consists of random quirks that made him a tiny bit more interesting than just a typical “jerk with good intentions” archetype: he likes the ocean, he fusses a lot over his clothes, he’s a bit softer towards children, etc. But he barely got any depth in terms of his character or just how he felt about the shit that was happening to him, because Araki either doesn’t write out his thoughts (and when he does, he’s just thinking about how to get out of the situation he’s currently in, like “when DIO resumes time I’ll beat the shit out of him!!”) or just skips over the parts where Jotaro might’ve had some genuine feelings about something other than getting angry, profusely sweating, or going “yare yare daze.”

Jotaro could’ve been so much better as a character if only Araki paid less attention to him being badass and more attention to how he felt on the inside. Seriously, part 3 is about him as a 17-year-old boy going through all this heavy shit like his mom being on the verge of death and half of his squad dying, yet his reaction to any of this was just a zoom in to his face and him going “tch.” You could argue that this was his thing, that he’s supposed to be inexpressive, and that little reactions like this were how he showed he cared, but listen: clearly this didn’t work out because half the fanbase thinks he’s a stale piece of bread because of how stoic he is. 

There’s just so many things that Araki left open that would’ve given him some much-needed characterization:

  • Was he ever concerned that any member of their party could die at any time?
  • Since he and Kakyoin were both Japanese high schoolers, how close was their friendship?
  • Did he ever see Kakyoin’s corpse after the SPW foundation recovered it?
  • When he went back to school, did people ever ask him where Kakyoin went?
  • How does he feel about owning the same stand that killed Kakyoin and almost killed Joseph?
  • How does his relationship with Holly improve after part 3? Did he ever apologize to her?
  • What was his relationship with his dad and do they ever see each other again?
  • How close did he and Polnareff get after the Egypt stuff, since they were the only crusaders left other than Joseph who was becoming old and fading?
  • How did he feel when Polnareff was “killed” by Diavolo?
  • Did he ever learn that Polnareff was alive the whole time but is now trapped inside a turtle as a spirit for the rest of eternity?
  • How did he meet his wife and why did he marry her?
  • What was he feeling when Jolyne was born?

TL;DR Jotaro is the poster boy of JJBA so he should have and could have been the best JoJo in my eyes, but he wasn’t, and for a teenager who can’t write for shit I have unreasonably high and unrealistic expectations for a manga about dudes fighting each other with punchghosts that was literally written as it was being published weekly.

Me to myself after writing this and feeling like an absolute fool:

Not a question, but I saw your response on the cetacean captivity ban in the Vancouver Aquarium and I wanted to say how much I respected you for how you structured your comment and in particular this statement: "You can’t responsibly advocate for extreme positions without being aware of and comfortable with the consequences." I feel like it's a sentiment more people (including myself) need to keep in mind when engaging in discourse about a variety of subjects.

Thanks! Yeah, it’s a really hard thing to conceptualize, but it’s so important - especially in light of animal issues, although it’s appropriate to a lot more. 

One interesting aspect of this is that there’s someone associated with HSUS in Massachusetts pushing a bill right now that purports to protect animals in traveling circuses. Which, like, at face value looks good. But it’s HSUS, and it turns out the ban would also screw over literally anyone but AZA who travels with non-domestic animals, which means it threatens to destroy a lot of the credible local businesses who do classroom education programs. I’m writing a bigger post on it for tomorrow, but the ethos is sort of the same - if you want to support the extreme ‘nobody but AZA’ stance of it, you really have to be comfortable with how many other consequences there are going to be. If you’re cool with that, cool, but you need to be aware when you support things like this. 

the entire siege arrow scene is so fuckign funny in retrospect knowing that percy and vex knew they had feelings for each other by that point because they’re both hilariously unsubtle about it but neither of them think it’s requited

percy: shattering stone, shattering doors, breaking things that should not be broken.
vex: breaking hearts left and right?
percy: if… that is what you’re after.
percy: never forget you’re my favorite and i’m so sorry.

What would Shawn be like if you told him you're pregnant like right now at this point in his life?

i feel like it depends on what your relationship with him is.

if you’re just a one-night stand, I think he would probably be a bit suspicious as to whether this was an intentional grab for his cash or if it was genuinely an accident. and this isn’t shawn being an asshole, this is shawn being a rational teenage boy in the limelight who was told to be careful about gold-diggers that’ll sleep with him and poke holes in the condom. All in all though, once he realizes that you were both drunk and it’s possible the condom broke without either of you noticing, he would be supportive and try to assure you that he’ll be there for you and the baby through everything. It wouldn’t be a happy occasion, but more of a ‘let’s figure out how to get through this with less damage to my image as possible’ kind of thing. 

if you’d been dating for a while and were genuinely in love, he’d dry your tears with his thumb under your eye saying things like “hey, it’s okay. we’ve got family who will help us out, and you’ve got me always, yeah? you and me– the best damn team anyone’s ever seen.” and he’d do his best to keep you out of the social media circle hungry to devour you and slut shame you and tarnish all the hard work you’d done in your life because you’re only eighteen and you’re pregnant. the gold-digger comments would come then too of course, because there are always those fans that believe that’s all you’ve ever been. but you have shawn, and you have the few people you trust hanging around at all times, and you feel protected and loved and that maybe, just maybe, everything will be okay :)

Ok so like I said in my previous post, here’s a seperate one about this thing because I have way too many feelings about it. I wish I could post screencaps but I cant right now so if anyone has them handy, please feel free to add them here.

So in Memory World when Atem is fighting Bakura and is about to faint due to too much energy lost, Yugi (and the gang) come flying to help him and we get that reeeeaaally gay moment with the hand holding and the gazing in each other’s eyes and “Yugi is the light of hope” and all that good stuff.

Flashforward to DSOD where Yugi is about to faint due to too much energy lost from fighting Diva and Atem comes flying to help in a huge flash of golden light right after Yugi says he still believes in the heart of the cards.

anonymous asked:

i feel hopeless and useless to the people around me and i hate it but i don't know what to do to help it. sorry to bother <3

hello, love. 

we can talk about this more over chat if you want to? i would like to know the backstory as to why you feel that way. for now, i can give some general advice.

when you feel that way, try to remind yourself a few things. one, those people probably don’t think about it as much as you do. (if that comes off as rude, it’s not meant to be, i promise.) what i mean is that everyone has their own thoughts and worries swimming around their heads, so they’re most likely caught up in their own stuff to worry/think about other people. second, be yourself and the right people will come to you. if you’re feeling useless around the people you hang out with, there’s probably a disconnect. find people you click with and understand what you’re feeling and still love you for it. 

to be completely honest, i feel this way sometimes. it’s a hard feeling to shrug off, too, i know. but figure out some little things you like about yourself and focus on those things. find something to smile about and do something to help someone/something out once in awhile, even if that’s just holding the door for them. little acts of kindness do wonders for both sides of the situation. 

i hope this helps somewhat. if not, i can just give you a little hug :)

Jayla: Hey girl! Love that sweater, are you feeling okay today? I heard about what happened at the party the other night. 

Vivian: Thanks. I’m just trying not to think about it right now.

Jayla: I understand. Just wanted to say sorry and I can’t believe Savannah said that to you. 

Macey: She says anything like it again and she’ll be seeing me at the end of the school hallway.

Vivian: Guys, it’s really okay. Let’s just forget about it and pretend it never happened.

ok but like…..i can’t imagine being Aloy after learning what she did inside the mountain. what her mind is going through and what she must be feeling. and then having to come out of the mountain and have all the Nora worship her after they mocked and hated her all her life. And THEN still have to listen to their ignorant words about “All-Mother” and the “Goddess” and the “Anointed”. like… having learned all this knowledge and not having one single friend to share it with except a dude you only speak through your Focus once in a while and has no care for your feelings because he’s just using you to find out more about what the hell happened to the world. and she can’t share it with anyone else anyway because these people have lived all their lives worshiping an imaginary goddess and basing their lives around it so how do you even begin to tell them what you just learned????

I want to fucking kill myself right now. I’m so. I’m so tired of feeling so much about everything I can’t stop thinking about every fucking thing at least everything I can rmbr and my mother I can’t stop thinking about m mother I hate her but I love her and it fucking HURTS like why did she do that to me. Why. I didn’t do anything I thought she was just cleaning me I wonder how much of her I have repressed I just want to die I want to die the only thing I’ve ever been good 4 in my life is To be a sex toy or just a fuckin punching bag I don’t want this life I don’t want these thoughts anymore I am tired I don’t want to work to be an adult tohav to take care of myself I almost hit someone w my car driving while dissociated i saw it happen but couldn’t move any of my body I drove straight to him n he jumped off his bike to get pst the car I couldn’t move i dont know how to. Be awake anymore im not in control of my body 23 out of 24 hrs of the day I’m tired I’m tired I don’t want to be this way anymore I’m so tired i dont know how to cope anymore

I was trolling Alexandra Breckenridge's Instagram and found this gem of a comment posted under a photo of her from This is Us : "I feel sorry for Rick since Jessie passed away - he's now stuck with some ugly dude that resembles Rick James. Every time I see Manchonne, it looks like she's about to break out singing "Superfreak" or something." This Instagram account is private, of course. SMH, one year later. Sigh....

This is why I never read the comments on anything. People – especially “fans” of that lady – will never fail to prove us right.

  • Takeda: What should we do...? Since #1-kun moved up to the vanguard... how should I put this... it's like their attacks give off a feeling of experience...
  • Ukai: Experience... that's a good way to put it. half of our starters are 1st years, and on top of that, this lineup was only formed a short while ago, so our level as a team is stuck close to 1... in comparison, their team's level is upwards of 10 or even 20 times higher.
  • Takeda: In other words, their side is like a distinguished adult cat and ours is like a newborn crow chick.
  • Ukai: Yep, that about sums it up. No matter how much we struggle, right now we have no chance in terms of defensive and offensive diversity. Since we don't have it yet, we just recklessly sink our teeth in!
eskimo-whispers replied to your post “beronicakissed replied to your post: It’s 2018,…”

what I love the most about his response is that he doesn’t wanna lie. He cannot directly spoil and he doesn’t wanna lie!!! WHAT A MAN, we are blessed

RIGHT?

It’s not like before when they would say “no it’s not happening”, which escaled to “Maybe one say it’s gonna happen”, then “The feelings are there but that’s not something we’re exploring right now”

HE POINT BLANK AVOIDED ALL THAT (much like Eliza on Unity Days, might i add?? They followed the same patern of NOT DENYING, of not even saying “oh maybe one day”, They both went with…. I can’t talk about it)

I really hope they know how to reverse that.

STEVEN

DON’T YOU FUCKING DARE SAY THAT SHIT

It’s obvious Steven is not going to die, he is the main character of a kid show, but this is the first time i see the gems this scaed and worried, even Garnet. I feel so bad for them.

In other circumances i would laugh at that gag but now it’s sad.

I thought childish things were going to reverse the effect, but it doesn’t seem to work for some reason?

fuck.

I know Pearl is all about being the over protective mom, but seeing her like this is really breaking my heart, her kid is literally dying infront of her.

I really don’t know what to say about this episode, it went from being the funniest episode of the show to the darkest episode of the show, this is genius writing right here.

anonymous asked:

I have a secret to tell. I'm in a relationship with a girl and we've been together for the better part of a year. We are poly but neither of us have another partner right now. I'm not sure I love her the way she loves me. Don't get me wrong, I love her to death, but I'm not sure it's romantic love?? It's not like I don't want to date her, I just don't know if what I feel is romantic. I don't know what to do about it, any advice?

So this can be difficult, because emotions are wack, but here’s what I’d do:

Stick it out for a little bit. Something toooooo many people in our generation forget is that the honeymoon phase is just a phase. Sometimes you won’t feel head over heels for your SO, but if you truly love them you’ll feel it every so often. Relationships aren’t always full of love and I feel like that’s something that’s not taught anymore. Love is friendship, and it’s okay to feel platonic sometimes.

But, if after some time (let’s say…2.5+ weeks?) you still feel that way, just tell her! Don’t say it like ‘let’s just be friends’ but more like you’re only feeling platonic attraction now. If you’re positive on that, it does more harm than good to lead her on in a relationship that ultimately won’t last.
