Summary: What it says on the tin, folks. *points to title*
A/N: Ridiculous nonsense, as per usual. Spoilers for Powerless and Supergirl. 

Meanwhile, in scenic CHARM CITY…

Van Wayne has a brilliant idea.

“No, really,” Emily says, shortly after Van holsters his finger guns and retreats to his office. “This might actually be a great idea.”

“He stole it from Lex Corp,” Jackie says, taking a languid sip of coffee. (Black and bitter, much like her feelings for this job.) “Oh. Sorry. L-Corp.”

“So pretentious,” Teddy mutters.

This probably isn't what you want right now, but I just wanted to let you know that the ending of naruto broke my heart too. I got seriously depressed. I couldn't eat or sleep for about 2 weeks and honestly, it still hurts. However, your art is amazing and it reminds me of the hopefulness I still felt when the series was ending. It's been a while now since the ending but it's still hard for me to move on. I know I sound a little overdramatic, but sasunaru meant and means a lot to me.

Aww anon I’m sorry to hear that. Just think about how SNS had the most development and that their bond is the strongest no matter who they’ve married!! Naruto and Sasuke were always drawn to each other from the very start, and the very reason they fought was because of this ‘attraction’ - Naruto didn’t want to lose Sasuke, and Sasuke was afraid that his feelings will deter him from his goal. And they came to truly understand each other in the end. 

Also you can always choose to ignore canon. You don’t have to take NH and SS seriously, and it’s really easy not to, thanks to Kishimoto’s horrible writing. We never see them get together in the manga, and even in chapter 700 we never see them together. Plus NH had like… 40 pages of interaction? And don’t even let me touch SS. Remember having a wife and children does not always equal happiness.  

Plus there are awesome artists out there who still draw SNS, and even if I may not draw them as much as I used to, it’ll always be the mothership ;_;

I know you've been gone but any chance of younow thoughts? Your recaps are my favourite. Please please please.

Hello I’m alive and yes I have to because WHAT AN AMAZING LIVE SHOW.

My god, was it just me, or did Dan seem giddy af? He was in such a good mood. Seriously, for a second I almost questioned whether he might be tipsy or something lol. The dimple was nearly on full display that entire hour because of how much he was laughing and smiling. So lovely and nice to watch.

With that came so many gems…..

“Get a house and a dog” “Probably one day, it’s inevitable…I’d like to think.” hahahahahahahahaha ha ha ha h *cries* way to paint the most beautiful picture imaginable, Daniel. I can see it now. Dan. Phil. Dog. House. Koi pond. Garden. Marriage license (but come on, Phil’s right, it’s only just a piece of paper and they’re already married as hell). What more could anyone else want really?

“Phil came up with this one you little shit” My favorite sentence of the whole show.

Dan saying this has been the best year of his life. *wipes tear*

Phil being loud in the background and Dan yelling to him. Also LOVED that he admitted to Phil waiting till the show is over so they can eat together. I mean, we all knew, (gotta love the times when we hear Phil banging around in the kitchen) but it was cute to have him mention it. The idea of Phil getting all restless and trying to make Dan hurry up so they can have dinner is pretty adorable. “The Domestic life of Dan Howell” is right.

He said multiple times how pleased and happy he was that everyone was so supportive of the app. And how scared he was beforehand because he thought the reaction would be negative. That made me a bit sad tbh. That is definitely 100% directly related to the reaction of tabinof and it hurts my heart to think that they might have been any ounce more doubtful of themselves. It would be very difficult to not harbor some insecurities after the reception of the book/tour. Dan already doubts himself quite a lot and it’s just a shame to think that their confidence might have been wounded from that. Especially in regards to something they were/are so proud of. I know people had their reasons and it was a huge shock to many, but I just wish things had been different. That’s all. And his statements today really reminded me of that. But on the positive side, I'm very happy that they were so excited and proud of the way the app was received by everyone this time around. They deserve it.

Okay I need your help. I know this is gonna sound stupid but I was wondering if you could analyze/explain a B/J scene for me. I'm talking about the scene where Brian is riding his bike (liberty ride) and he has visions/hallucinations of himself and Justin.

Not stupid in the slightest! And you’re in luck, because that is absolutely one of my FAVORITE scenes in the entire series. (I feel like lately every time I’m asked to analyze a scene I say it’s one of my favorites and I should hold back a bit before the phrase loses its meaning, but I can’t help it if you all keep choosing amazing scenes for me to explore. <3) But really, this is a gloriously revealing scene that tells us so much both about Brian and about his feelings for Justin… because really, what better way to get inside Brian’s head than to have him in such physical and emotional agony that he begins hallucinating, am I right? :D

Eren and Mikasa didn’t even interact in this chapter??!

This is a reply to maggzdaspaz post

I thought I would put it on a separate post because I know that’s not the only insecure and disappointed eremika shipper out there :)

First, I totally understand your worry! :)
And I would have agreed with you If I didn’t see how things happened in this chapter and their context !

Eren and Mikasa didn’t interact for months

TRUE . Only it’s because Eren has been kidnapped for all these months!
(and I have to remind you that it’s not “actual months” it’s just few days, the monthly release of the manga can reallydeceive us sometimes huh :D)

Tbh I can’t understand feeling insecure about Mikasa not showing feelings to Eren. If I remember well, the chapter where they did experiments to Eren, Mikasa was constantly by his side, even disobeying orders to retrieve him from the titan which was necessary that time because Hanji might exaggerate sometimes! She wasn’t afraid to retort on levi to defend Eren, and honestly she has been lifeless this whole time Eren wasn’t around, I’m sure her deep concern for Eren is still just the same!

Now to this chapter

Calum and if I'm lucky by state champs? :)

“Hello, sunshine, I um, can i even call you that anymore? I know you haven’t heard from me in a while, and you probably never want to hear from me again, but I’ve got a lot to say, so please, hear me out before deleting this message.

I know i was the reason we broke up. I know, fuck, i think about it every day. I gave the worst excuses of all time, like I was afraid of commitment, I was afraid I couldn’t stay faithful to you while I was gone. I can see now how much that hurt you, baby, I’m so sorry. I was so stupid.

In all honesty though, I was afraid. I was afraid of my feelings, and I was afraid of falling in love with you, but it happened. It happened way before we broke up, but I didn’t realize how much I loved you because i was in such denial, I was terrified of my own feelings because I didn’t want to grow up and I wanted to live this- this awful rockstar cycle. And I tried to move on, I did but-” His words stung your ears as the image of him with other girls circulated your brain. There had been a few weeks when you’d seen pictures of him leaving clubs with different girls, before there were none, and you rarely saw pictures of him out at all. You were tempted to ask one of the boys about it one night, when you were drunk and alone, but before you could, you forced yourself to delete their numbers from your phone. “god, none of them compared to you. Not even close. I realized the feelings I had for you were right, they were supposed to be there, I was supposed to be in love with you, and it was okay.”

I'm a longtime fan of yours and your Thunderbirds post reminded me of something you seem possibly qualified to answer. :) I'm really interested in birding but being blind puts a bit of a damper on that. Do you know of any sites or apps that are a good resource for bird sounds (and possibly their meanings) so I can look for birds by ear? While I'm at it, how did you start birding? Is there a beginner's guide to it? Thanks for any help on this! :)

Yes! Okay, there’s actually a series called “Birding By Ear” put out by Peterson Field Guides, which you can listen to–I know they’re on CD, maybe you can get them on iTunes or something now, not sure. You basically just pop them in your car or something and it’s like one of those learn-a-foreign-language tapes where you hopefully master it after endless exposure.

Cornell Labs All About Birds also has calls for every bird species in North America, including regional variations, so you can check them out, too!

I started birding by getting some cheap Bushnell binoculars and a second hand bird guide and trying to figure out what the stuff outside my window was. (Obviously, being blind, this is not specifically useful for you, more as a general to other readers.) That’s the basics. After that, it’s a process of slowly upgrading your equipment. I eventually went up to the Nikon Monarch binoculars and a scope and I love the Sibley Guides. But it’s totally okay to work up, rather than dump a bunch of money on it out of the gate.

Keep a list of all the birds you think you’ve seen or heard, and it is totally okay to have lots of “I think this is X but I’m not sure and I’d have to get a better look/hear it more clearly to count it,” entries because this is not a good hobby if you require certainty.

Good luck!

ETA: I should add, by the way, that while I can’t do birds by ear worth a damn, there are birders who are really really good and they are always welcome in a birding group (like REALLY REALLY WELCOME–a friend stood in my back garden and just listed off species that I’d heard but never seen and it was amazing) so don’t be shy about attending Audubon meetings or something once you’ve gotten a little confidence in your skills. Or even beforehand!

A ramble on Reylo and reading

Much as I love how the internet enables fangirling, both angst and squee, sometimes the sheer clamor drives me crazy. I’m almost 36; quite old by Tumblr standards. ;) I lived a good half of those years without internet access, and you bet your boots I was gleefully fangirling all that while, sans interwebs (of course, it helped that I lived with an equally gleeful like-minded sister). Anyway, something that’s stood out to me recently is SW fans saying with conviction - even certainty - that things WILL unfold in one fashion or another in future film installments and/or that a certain character will NEVER (insert action here). While I understand these speculations to a point, whatever happened to lingering - heck, languishing! - in that exquisitely agonizing moment of uncertainty and hope, like when you’ve finished the first book in a delicious new trilogy and the second one doesn’t even have a release date yet? (Remember REALLY old-school fangirling when you didn’t know if there was or would ever be a sequel?) Why do we need so badly to definitively answer every last question question raised by the first installment in a new trilogy less than a month after its theatrical release?

While I was turning these things over in my mind it occurred to me (in lightning-bolt fashion) that the relationship between Kylo Ren and Rey reminds me strikingly of some of my absolute favorite book pairings of all time. And I am absolutely not a girl who likes villains or thinks rape/domination is appealing (ugh!) or even interesting in any way; I don’t have time for brooding heroes and – this seems to surprise everyone – I’ve never had the slightest flicker of interest in Mr. Darcy or others of his ilk.

In fact, most of my favorite books aren’t overtly romantic at all – though they always, always, always have a subtle, fabulous underlying current of a love story – and the pairings that keep me reading into the wee hours of the morning are the ones that absolutely shouldn’t happen for all manner of practical reasons (not moral ones, mind), and when the characters first meet it’s often as adversaries or, at the very least, absolutely not as potential love interests. But there’s something so dynamic and intriguing about their interactions that you’re punching pillows and audibly squeeing anytime there’s the faintest hint that they might like each other – a mannerism from him, an unexpected frustration from her - and when they finally kiss (because these are sloooooooooooow-burn couples and it takes 90% of the book/series to get them to said first kiss) the world sort of explodes in perfection and bliss.

Then again, I read slightly obscure books (mainly lots of excellent old-school YA), and there’s obviously a tiny part of me that’s craving Reylo plotbunnies based thereupon. But looking over said beloved titles on my shelf has further convinced me that Reylo unfolds, to some extent, along the lines of the pairings in these stories and (God willing!) just might have the potential to turn out likewise.

(Please bear in mind: I’m not equating Reylo with any of these pairings or stories, just remarking on intriguing common threads that I’ve observed. I know that Reylo hate abounds and I’d rather not be on the receiving end, on the off-chance that one of your favorite books is on my Reyloesque list.)

Do you have any Utena/Sailor Moon crossover ships? I want this discussion to happen so bad, but I feel I'm not quite yet at the point of understanding Utena well enough to do the shipping myself. X

Oohh this is SUCH an interesting thought. I’m not really sure I’m one to ship romantically across two series, but I love thinking through what would come of the two casts meeting. Below are some quick things that came to mind thinking about the characters - I’d love to hear what others think, especially if you have actual ships!
