Why did you choose your URL: 
Oh, I’ve kinda answered this before!
I went with pumpkin because of a story I read a couple years ago, and because pumpkins make me think of comfy stuff, like autumn, warm food, colder weather and cozy clothes!
Then I wanted to go with small-pumpkin, but small and all the synonyms I could think of were already in use. So I went with the french word for small, petite.

I’m not a particularly ambitious person.

Do you want to talk about our Lord and Savior Sunset Shimmer?

Of course you do what kind of question is that? Anyway… I’ll be talking about a subject that’s been speculated on the surface by many, but never deeply delved into: Sunset Shimmer’s design change.

Everyone should know by now that between Rainbow Rocks and Friendship Games, Sunset’s hair changed color. Namely, the red slightly desaturated and the yellow paled a lot in comparison. Sure, most people wrote it off as “the character designers wanted to put out color choices that were more pleasing to the eye”, and I believed that for a long while. But then, while rewatching the original Equestria Girls, I noticed something.

Now, being an artist and animator, I’ll pick visual elements apart until they can’t be picked apart anymore, and then I’ll pick them apart again and again. Now, in the first movie, we caught a glimpse of Pony!Sunset Shimmer. However, we didn’t see a single rendition of her in the light, only in darkness. So naturally, I’m sure many people just assumed that in the light, her hair would just be the same color as it is in the human world. But, upon looking closer:

They’re clearly not the same shade of yellow in the dark. Using the color picker, I masked the screenshot of Human!Sunset with the same shade of blue that DHX (presumably) used in the first image. The reds and eyes matched up almost identical, the only main difference being skin vs coat color, but all of the EQG characters have lighter skin tones than their pony counterparts, so it makes sense that the same would apply to Sunset.

However, this means DHX knew what they were doing from the start. Sunset’s hair changing color wasn’t just a design change - it meant something. Even the comics took that into play.

My theory is that when Sunset transferred herself to the Mirror World, the darkness in her heart took a physical effect on her. I mean, it’s been done before - may I remind you of Nightmare Moon? Magic does stuff to ya, it’s canon. It didn’t do much, not nearly as much as NMM, possibly because while she was doing it she knew deep down she was wrong? Or maybe she wasn’t fully consumed because… Underneath all of this she was sort of being protected by the Elements of Harmony - nature knew she’d one day create her own Element, Empathy? I dunno!

But yeah, like many others I believe this song was the turning point to her physical change - would’ve been cool if it changed during the song, imagine how rad that would be. Maybe DHX is still trying to hide something from us. Or, y’know, it’s always possible I’m reading too much into this. But my main point of this was…

This was planned.

They planned this.

It wasn’t just a write-off design change, this is legitimately canon.

if this Twitter response didn’t break your heart, idk what will. even if we weren’t subscribers in say, 2009 or 2010, we’ve all pretty much watched videos from then and looked at his current videos and thought “wow, look how much he’s changed” he used to be so full of self hate and insecurity, and now that he’s finally in a bit of a better place, the people he works hard to entertain get mad at him because he’s not posting the kind of content we want him to. “I’m a constant disappointment” is something he would say during old liveshows, and rewatching those moments always made my heart ache for younger Dan. watching him say it again just made me feel horrible. I can’t help thinking that if he didn’t have to worry about making “quality content” then he would be in a much better place mentally. please don’t be rude to Dan because even if you think he won’t read it, there’s still the possibility that he will and that it’ll take a toll on his self esteem and overall mental well being. we have to remember that he does all he can for us, and we should be grateful instead of yelling at him❤️ (I’d really prefer not to receive any discourse about this, as I’m not going to argue with an anon who thinks it’s okay to be rude to someone who’s still working on feeling good about themselves)

Poorly written parallel

I tried hard to like episode 12x18. I really did. However, there are many things I cannot deny, no matter how much I still love Supernatural or how committed I am to shipping Destiel and being generally positive about stuff. The episode wasn’t good. It wasn’t even acceptably good, and I’m sorry if some people out there have liked it or found nice things to say about it. I applaud you if you found something to like about “The memory remains”. I wish it were that easy for me.

People wrote meta about the aliases used in the episode: Agents Stark and Martell. Of course the reference to Oberyn Martell, a bisexual character from Game of Thrones, was the first thing to come to mind, so the episode seemed promising.

The very first thing we saw about Dean in the episode was that he was still worried about Cas. Dean had been trying to find Cas and couldn’t be convinced that he’d be fine. It’s so unusual for Cas not to call Dean back that Dean’s even considered the possibility that Cas has been arrested or killed. Besides, Dean’s way ahead of Sam regarding how concerned he is about Castiel. When Sam finally said that it was time to find the angel, Dean confessed he’d already tried. Up until that point, everything seemed normal and in accordance to what’s been happening in previous episodes.

Consistent writing didn’t last long, though. I don’t want to sound mean, but Mr. John Bring didn’t do a good job of portraying Dean. It’s very obvious when people do their homework thoroughly and when people just do some kind of surface research. The fact that Sam is the smart guy who likes to do research and read books while eating healthy food and Dean is the ladies’ man who prefers to do women over research while eating meat or greasy food is something that Mr. Bring copied and pasted from many seasons ago when Dean hadn’t had any character development yet. I hate it when a character’s growth is set back simply because the writer couldn’t be bothered to watch the most recent seasons of the show. That was poor writing, no matter how much we might try to justify it.

Dean behaved like a douche in that diner. He wasn’t paying much attention to what Sam was saying; he seemed more interested in the waitress than in the case that took them to Wisconsin. I couldn’t help having a flashback to many seasons back. Then we were just told that Dean spent an “awesome” night of meaningless sex with the waitress (Carmen), and they didn’t interact after that.

Are you seriously telling me that the only woman who showed up in the episode, whose name we could barely hear, who had literally no lines (except for saying her name) was there SIMPLY TO BE DEAN’S ONE NIGHT STAND? Are you fucking kidding me? That’s stupid writing and I am not going to defend the jerk who came up with that unoriginal, ridiculous idea. Mary had meaningless sex with Mr. Ketch last week, and even their hook up provided more insight than what we were given about Dean and the waitress.

Dean is an almost 40-year old man who is allowed to have sex whenever he wants to. That’s true. He is free to do it just as much as Mary was. I don’t mind if we’re going to have Dean hooking up with random women, but at least that should be relevant to the story somehow. This random waitress, however, was totally expendable. Do this exercise, delete in your mind the scenes where she appeared. When you do that, is there anything missing in the story? Does anything change? Will it be useful in further episodes? At least Mary and Mr. Ketch’s sex scene added to the drama about the whole “Mr. Ketch, eliminate all American hunters” thing that we have going on. Carmen’s whole purpose in the episode was to show us that Dean still got it, that he can still be a macho man who gets the ladies. Repeat after me: That is poor, sloppy writing!

Don’t try to tell me that if Dean is bisexual it means he can be with women and with men whenever he wants to. I fucking know that! I AM BISEXUAL, for Chuck’s sake! I know what being bisexual feels like. I’ve known it all my life. It’s just that this isn’t real life; it’s TV. If the writer of the episode really intended to show that Dean is bisexual, he could have included the meaningless sex as well as a scene of Dean flirting with some random guy. But of course we’re not gonna get that! Of course we’ll only get Dean with a replaceable woman who has no substance or relevance in the story. OF COURSE!

You can tell me that the writer was trying to make a clear parallel between old Bishop and John Winchester. 
And maybe…. MAYBE you’re right. I’ll give you that.

PETE: Old man Bishop, he, uh, he had an eye for the ladies.

Before that line, we got the whole “different moms, same daddy”, which clearly reminded us that John Winchester had Dean and Sam but also had another child. (Hello, Adam!) It’s even more interesting to hear the guy say a line similar to the one that has forever been the Winchester motto: “Saving people, hunting things, the family business”. Compare that to the Bishop motto: “Hunting people, killing them. The family business.”

We know Dean learned to be the ladies’ man from his father. A lesson that he learned pretty well as we were painfully reminded in the episode thanks to Carmen. And here we have two Bishop sons: Pete (the one who wanted to do exactly what his father did) and Barry (the one who wanted to put a stop to it). So who’s Dean going to be? In this episode Dean was Pete. He behaved just like old John Winchester would have expected him to. Will he put a stop to it? Will he be like Barry? I don’t know and these writers fuck up so much sometimes that I don’t even want to speculate about it right now.

I got the parallel loud and clear. But I still think that it was poorly written. In the hands of a much talented writer, we could have gotten something ten times better. In moments like this, I miss Ben Edlund, Robbie Thompson, and even Jeremy Carver. The fact that I kind of understand why something was written doesn’t mean I have to approve of the way it was executed. At the end of the day, 12x18 was an episode that I wouldn’t recommend rewatching.

A bunch of Star Trek doodles, as promised! Mostly DS9 at the moment. I’m rewatching Voyager with dad, so I can’t binge like I do with DS9 lmao. 

I found @subspacecommunication‘s wonderful alien redesigns the other day, and I’m absolutely in love with their Cardassians (sorry for pretty much plagiarising them…). Now I really want to do more redesigns of my own!

Be With Me Now (Okieriete Onaodowan x Reader)

masterlist   /   askbox  /   prompts

Prompt: Like literally my previous fic, nobody wanted nor requested this, anyway, I used prompt 57 and 19, from this list of prompts.

Author’s Note: Okay, so here’s another fic nobody’ll want nor read. I’m not particularly fond of 5 Seconds of Summer, but Troye Sivan’s cover of Heartbreak Girl is wow. So, I guess, that’s what Be With Me Now is very loosely based off of. 

Warning: Basically fluffy angst, mentions of a breakup, infidelity, cursing, also some pining.

Pairing: Oak x Reader

Word Count: 1760+


Tears made found their way down your reddened cheeks and were immediately met with the scratchy material of the sleeves of your least favourite turtleneck. You were racking your brain for answers, trying to find what you did wrong, or why you weren’t good enough. You kept telling yourself that surely you must have done something for them to have wanted to cheat on you. Every single day you relived finding your partner in your bed with somebody else.

You remember how awful it was to find them in your bed with someone else— you felt hurt, anger, and embarrassment within a matter of seconds. Those feelings never left, they still reside in you, even after a chunk of time. Thankfully, you had your best friend Oak by your side through it all. Oak, being the sweet person he is, offered for you to hang in his dressing room for the remainder of the show (seeing as you showed up during intermission, extremely upset) and following the show, he’d keep you company at your place and order in.

Y’all always talk about how good Disney was back in the day but you SLEEP on the famous Jett Jackson, aka one of the first ever live action Disney Channel original sitcoms aka THE FIRST Disney Channel original sitcom with a black lead (RIP Lee Thompson Young). 

Y’all especially sleep on this extremely important and still extremely relevant episode from 2000 called ‘Food for Thought’.

See, The Famous Jett Jackson is about a boy who stars on a very popular tv show who convinces his show runners to move the show from Hollywood and back to his home town and how different his life is. 

But in this particular episode it starts with Jett doing an interview in Charlotte where he is really troubled when the interviewer starts to remind him about the privilege he has being a successful young black man and how that isn’t the reality for most young black men where they’re from and how he’ll never really understand that. Jett is really bothered by this so he decides to brave the city alone and see what the interviewer was talking about. He encounters another young black man around his age who is experiencing a very different life than he is and helps show Jett what black people without the privilege he has really go through

But most of all I want to highlight a specific scene that really struck me when I was rewatching this. Jett is trying desperately to call his dad on a pay phone after losing his wallet and is frustrated when the phone is broken, so he slams down the receiver. That’s when two cops show show up and force him to the ground, physically hurt and try to detain him.

F o r    s l a m m i n g   a   r e c e i v e r. 

The only reason they let him go is because a taxi happens to drive by with an ad for his show on the side and one of the cops recognises him. It felt so real. 

Here are some quotes from the episode that really struck me and are still so relevant:

‘The fact is, despite how far we’ve come in the last 40 years, a young black man living in the community is still far more likely to find himself in the back of a cop car than the back of a limo,’

‘Just another black man dead in the streets, you know. TV news didn’t even bother to cover it.’

‘Why you harassing the boy? The kid’s just tryna call his dad.’

‘You think I don’t know what it means to be a black man in America?’

‘If those people who can help, don’t, who will?’

WATCH THIS EPISODE. DON’T SLEEP ON JETT JACKSON. DON’T SLEEP ON THIS EPISODE. DON’T LET DISNEY FORGET IT.

This is the kind of shit Girl Meets World needs to be addressing. This is what I want on the show. This is what Disney used to be. This is what Disney needs to be showing now.

katicings  asked:

how have you not watched the fall tho??? it's not perfect and the gratuitous violence against women is ... a lot, but i've never seen a show so explicitly call out misogyny, and in every man, from literal serial killers to random cat callers. plus like ... stella is sf hot. 🙌 /this has been a msg of peer pressure tbh

I am so fn terrible at watching shows. It took me two years to watch the x-Files. Did I tell you guys that? I’m not a binge watcher bc work gets in the way and there’s other stuff I have to do etc. right now I want to finish OITNB (honestly they killed off my fave character so I might just stop and not bother). And I’m supposed to be doing a Twin Peaks rewatch w/ my gf.

BUT. Then The Fall. It looks cool I love crime drama it looks like it was kind of gay there for a moment and I want to see GA continue her tradition of being a fucking savage

notyetbulletproof  asked:

My theory on why they waited so Long for a reveal is either a) they hadn't decided at the beginning. Not really or b) they want to reveal and wrap it up real fast so it doesn't leave people too mad (but the bad part is that it could be handled badly because of the rush).

I have a feeling it’s the latter of your options, because if you rewatch the first episode of the season, the answer is kind of there… But yeah, I hope it’s handled well and not rushed and under-written.

Jessica Jones Season 2 Will Be Directed Entirely By Women

Exectuive producer of Jessica Jones Melissa Rosenberg has announced that season 2 of the hit show will not stick with that current trend, and will be directed entirely by women, an announcment she made at the Transform Hollywood panel (via @moryan).

All 13 episodes of @JessicaJones S2 will be directed by women, EP Melissa Rosenberg says at her @transformhwood panel. @tallgirlmel #TH7”

As for Jessica Jones, Rosenberg recently offered some details on where the character finds herself after the events of season 1.

She was kind of messed up even before Kilgrave came along and so in Season Two we can explore what’s possible for her moving forward. I learned from working on Dexter that you can advance the character, but you never want to cure the character…that trauma is a huge part of who she is now.

Jessica Jones season 2 currently has no release date but you can always rewatch season 1 on Netflix. Luke Cage just released last month, and next up is Iron Fist, which is set for March 17, 2017. Marvel’s Defenders is scheduled for some time in 2017, followed most likely by The Punisher series, which has no release date as of this time.
