i have too many feelings for this

He might press her close now till the muscles knotted on his arms […] There are all kinds of love in the world, but never the same love twice.”

One of the saddest parts of FFXV is that you can already see how Noctis will be both revered and forgotten by his people. There will be books about him, statues of him, songs written about him, but they will not remember him.

They will remember the magical king who spend 10 years inside a crystal, who drew magic from the earth and sealed it in glass, who could summon weapons from thin air and wrap across the landscape in milliseconds, who gained the favor of 5 God’s and slew the sixth, who killed the Accursed, who ended the starscurge, who brought back the sun and put an end to all demons.

They will forget the boy who fed stray cats with fish he caught himself. The boy who loved chocobos and video games and sleeping late. The boy who could spend days at a fishing pond, who was passionate and sarcastic and kind. Who laughed with his friends and cried with them. The boy who was human.

RIGHT SO I JUST FINISHED REWATCHING TANGLED, AND

I just got hit by this realization.

Eugene is telling this as a bedtime story to their kids.

Like, all I could imagine is this adorable little brown haired kid with green eyes sitting in bed watching as he makes this really dramatic face, and begins

“This is the story of how I died!”

and they look a little scared, so he quickly goes

“Don’t worry, this is actually a very fun story and the truth is, it isn’t even mine. This is the story of a girl named Rapunzel and it starts with the sun.”

And they both look at Rapunzel real quick because, hey, Mom’s in the story, great!

And by the end they’re both teasing each other and making sappy faces and the kid’s giggling and half asleep and

“There you go, kiddo. That’s the story of how we met. Sweet dreams, sunshine. Tomorrow night we’re gonna tell you the story of how your Aunt Elsa froze her entire fucking country because of her emotional issues.”

EUGENE!”

WHAT?”

Eren is the best protagonist for a series like Attack on Titan.

A lot of people get frustrated that Eren is slow to jump into fights, like when he couldn’t transform to fight the female titan and when he froze up last episode during one of the Top 10 Anime Betrayals of all time. I think this misses out on a crucial point. Eren is actually very quick to join the action - but only when the situation fits the narrative of a sterotypical shounen. He’s the first one to go after killing the colossal titan when it appeared in episode 5. He saves Armin from being eaten alive while bleeding and missing a leg. Getting revenge for his mother and saving his childhood friend - classic shounen plotlines.

Eren is, essentially, a sterotypical shounen protagonist trapped in a storyline that subverts shounen tropes. He’s in the wrong genre. He views the world as very clear-cut good vs. evil. Humans are good, titans are bad, and humans will eventually succeed because they are on the good side. He believes it, so we believe it too. This is what makes it so shocking when the story deviates from shounen norms. (see: Levi’s squad and how the power of friendship failed to save them)

This is also the real reason why Eren hesitates when it is revealed that his friends were his enemies all along. It’s not because he’s a wimp or because he’s the new Shinji, it’s because his character isn’t prepared for a morally ambiguous world. However, this is what makes him a such a great protagonist for us. While we come to terms with the fact that the world of Attack on Titan isn’t as black and white as it first appeared, so does Eren, right alongside us.

agenderraskel  asked:

What do you think of JARVIS? Can he get inside your arm? Has he ever done so? Are you ever concerned about him taking over the world?

i like jarvis. hes everything nickel science fiction novels promised back when i was a kid.

 jarvis–and anyone else for that matter–cant get inside my arm because my arm has no ability to transmit or receive data, except for an internal data port under the armor plates which has to be accessed with a unique cable. so if you can get at it and you have the necessary equipment you can mess with my arm, but it’s impossible to hack while im out doing stuff. 

not that tony or i told anyone that for the first few months. i managed to knock steves glass out of his hands four times, throw things at clint six times, and smack sam upside the head twice before they realized that my arm was not being remotely controlled by ‘the evil Dr Dextrous.’ 

im not concerned about jarvis taking over the world because probably hed be a lot better at keeping things running smoothly that current management. jarvis has managed to keep tony stark mostly alive without actually having hands for like. several decades now. which probably qualifies him for sainthood, or at least a really nice retirement package. i figure after all that chaos managing a few billion non-geniuses without access to flying tanks is basically a cakewalk. 

but since jarvis has more sense than–well. basically any avenger–he knows that taking over the world would be way more stress than its worth.
jarvis is smart like that.

About Cable Girls

Hello, to anyone outside Spain watching Cable Girls and shipping Alba and Francisco, let me tell you something. HERE IN SPAIN WE HAVE BEEN SHIPPING EVERY CHARACTER THESE TWO ACTORS PLAYED EVER SINCE 2007.

Back in 2007, there was this show called “El Internado”, and the actors who now play Alba and Francisco had a beautiful relationship, one of the most painful, yet beautiful I’ve ever seen, and let me tell you, there are so many parallels between that relationship back then and the one they’re having in Cable Girls, like, I can’t believe they’re doing this, my heart can’t take it.

Also, what Francisco tells Alba in the first episode, “ten years is not enough to forget you”, like, GET THE FUCK OUT, IT’S BEEN TEN FUCKING YEARS SINCE THAT OTHER SHOW AIRED, WHERE IT ALL STARTED, WHAT ARE YOU DOING. And well, I’ve only watched till ep. 3 of Cable Girls, and that scene where Francisco asks her to tell him that she doesn’t love him and Alba goes and tells him, THAT SCENE IS A FUCKING PARALLEL BECAUSE IN THE OTHER SHOW, IT WAS THE CHARACTER OF BLANCA THE ONE WHO ASKED THE CHARACTER OF YON TO TELL HER THAT HE DIDN’T LOVE HER AND HE DID.

This show is making me way too emotional and bringing back feelings that I definitely didn’t ask for. Also, the actor who plays Carlos was also in that other show and it’s just too much. But his character in Cable Girls is so so different and I’m laughing way too much.

Also, thank jesus for Carlota and Sara, wHAT AN OTP, OH MY GOD. And what I find funny about this is that the actress who plays Carlota used to go out with another Spanish actor who is now going out with the actress who plays Sara (idk, it’s funny to me, okay? I’m stupid sometimes). But they’re reaaaaaaaally good friends and that makes me so so happy.

Anyways, I need to keep watching this show because it’s just too good to be Spanish and I am literally shook. GO WATCH IT, PLEASE!
