Larries: ^^^^^

Louis:

“The idea of acting sounds quite exciting to me. The idea of playing the ultimate rough chavvy - it’s like me being everyone I always wanted to be in Doncaster!”

- BBC interview

“I love the shell suit. I mean look, I’m a chav from Donny! I gotta embrace me roots!”

- KISS FM UK interview

Almost like Larries don’t know or understand anything about Louis or how he sees himself or how he’s actually presented himself for years. Chav can be a loaded word but it depends on use. Used as James Arthur did - calling himself and Louis “just a couple of chavs” - is obviously not meant as an insult, and obviously does refer to an identity that Louis feels strongly about. Louis obviously takes huge pride in his northern, working class background. It’s clear to anyone who actually pays attention that this is how he sees himself, that he does not see it as a bad thing. “Common as muck”? They’re using that as an insult?? And then calling other people classist??

And because they didn’t want to accept who Louis really is, didn’t want to accept that he’d actually be friends with James Arthur because they don’t like his image and what it means for who Louis is (and use the excuse of past homophobic comments that he has since apologized for), Larries said this about the exact identity and the exact word that Louis has now used to describe himself: 

WHAT A DISGRACE this team is for what they have done to Louis’ image. Imagine how Louis, his family, his stylist and his friends feel that he’s been called that? This is fucking deliberate. It’s disgusting.

They take Louis’s lower class image as an insult in contrast to Harry’s posh one, they insist it MUST carry an implication of ignorance and homophobia, and they’re calling other people classist. They call Louis’s entire identity a “disgrace” and refuse to accept that everyone else can see him as a northern lad AND a complex, beautiful person.

And once again, they’ve been shown to be deeply, utterly wrong about one of the things they use as an excuse for hatred and harassment - as well as deeply wrong about who Louis is.

“Tai got over Raven too fast!”

I cannot even begin to tell you how much sentiments like this annoy me. 

So I guess this sort of thing comes down to the questions, “How long should people grieve?” and “How long does it take to accept what caused the grief in the first place?” To be frank? There is not a straightforward answer to those questions. But, I feel that I have a bit of personal insight to perhaps share a bit of light on the subject. 

So lets start this off by saying that Raven left everyone. She did not die (obviously). This means the kind of grieving is going to be inherently different based on that fact alone. Take this in comparison to Summer when she went MIA and is presumed to be dead. To quote my mother about this: 

“When it came to [redacted name] it was a bit easier to move on because in the back of my mind there is still a chance to see them again. There was still a chance to seek them out to talk to them, even if there is only a small chance. However when it came to my sister dying, the hardest part to accept was the finality behind it. I won’t get to talk to her again, we won’t be able to see her again. It was hard to accept that reality, and I still struggle with that fact.”

Having someone abandoning you will leave scars, no doubt. But the small hope of getting answers, eventually, to why might help you out of grief a bit. When it comes to people dying though. Well that is a hell of a lot more devastating. Notice how Tai hasn’t moved on entirely from the presumed death of Summer. Now with this in mind, it’s now time to do some math.

Now I’m going to be honest, a lot of this is going to be a bit of an inference on my part. Now we have a mild timeline given based on the age difference between Ruby and Yang. Now that is a two year difference, and I’m going to freely assume that doesn’t mean two years exactly. So the age difference could be around two years to two and a half years we have here. Lets go ahead and minus nine months to that time due the the length of pregnancy. Based on that those facts we have about a year and three months to a year and nine months is the age Yang was at the time of Ruby’s conception. This means it could have possibly taken Tai at least year to a year and nine months to move on from Raven. And based on the fact that Ruby does not share the same last name as Yang, it is safe to assume that Tai and Summer had not been dating for long to have marriage be a viable option. 

From what I have seen it can take some people up to about a year to a year and a half to start dating/generally living again after the death of someone. Now, going back to what I said before, that being abandoned by someone is generally a bit easier to move on from over someone dying, this time-frame might be shortened just based on the fact that Raven did not die, she left. And from what I found, men can move on a bit faster than women. (Whether due to with anything from biology, or the fact that society at large tends to shame men for being too emotional is another topic beyond the scope for this blog honestly.) I hate to say it but some people might be barking up the wrong tree.

This was a lot more analytical than I meant it to be….

I love your actor Louis post! I can totally see him doing a dramatic or comedic role. I almost think like young Leo type roles? Not like a titanic romantic lead but maybe like catch me if you can? And I know you said a play and not a musical but hear me out...louis as the emcee in cabaret...

omg YES he would TOTALLY have the charisma to pull out something like Catch Me If You Can.  

I’ll also all Emcee in cabaret.  I mean obviously this would be a few years down the line and a LOT of his image would have to change but…whooo  boy if he does that would be fantastic.  

One of my main reasons for not wanting Louis in a musical is my own personal bias.  While I love love LOVE his voice i’m SUCH a musical theatre purist and when i see a musical I want that classic, smooth musical theatre sound. I’m not a huge lover of people with Pop sounds on broadway, even in pop musicals.

THAT BEING SAID.  I had a conversation the other night with someone and I now have a new obsession.  back in the fall HBO greenlit a movie version of Green Day’s American Idiot musical…  I never got around to seeing it on Broadway so I don’t know EXACTLY what role he’d be right for but there’s gotta be SOMETHING. I’d assume the John Gallagher Jr. role?  I mean…COME ON.  Green Day musical???  Louis Tomlinson????  I rest my case.

baronsamediswife replied to your post: Tbh I don’t think I’m ever gonna be over Dean…

I just feel like he immediately took all of that back in spades with the ‘weeding vows’ that followed? I get the frustration with that scene but to me it was never an issue again after they basically got married in that church. And I didn’t feel like it was for Sam either. So my problem with this demon blood stuff from SDCC is exactly that. Sam does not actually suddenly fear that Dean hates him again for that. He killed Death for Sam ffs!

Dean saying “I would put you before literally everything else” doesn’t automatically negate what he said, though. We obviously know that Dean loves Sam more than anything, and Sam does too, but that doesn’t mean Dean doesn’t have some fear, deep deep down, that Sam could potentially go dark side again someday. Whether Dean actually feels that way remains to be seen, but it’s entirely plausible for Sam to be worried that he does.

When you say you are picky with girls, in what way do you mean? I think that sometimes you just have to be open to everyone because you never know and can't judge straight away :)

It’s funny you say that because we were having this conversation with my dad and brother the other day. It was more aimed at debating the saying “opposites attract” and how true or not we think that saying is…
In saying that when I say picky obviously I don’t mean that I’m just palming everyone off (makes me sound like I have 1000 girls chasing after me which isn’t the case at all by the way hahah)
At the end of the day the most important thing for me is whether I click with someone or not. And I give everyone a chance to click with and if it does it does and if it doesn’t it doesn’t. And I think that’s quite obvious when you hang out with people a few times. 
People can sometimes think that relationships and friendships are separate entities but I would say that both of them start in similar fashion. Obviously you have to befriend someone before you can get in a relationship with them. And if you don’t click as friends then why pursue it? We get so caught up in physical appearance and what people look like now (because we are so wired into social media platforms. I mean look at tinder, we judge a possible partner off photos first and foremost before even meeting them. Instagram has literally become a platform for people to showcase yourself physically) that we forget about clicking with someone on a personality level. How often do we hear “oh man she’s so hot, I’d love to be with her” as opposed to “man she was just so funny and witty, I need to see her again” and that hit me recently with someone I met. It put things back into the perspective of when you find someone that clicks it makes THE BIGGEST difference. It’s like this “woah” moment. 
So i’m super open to meeting new people and I do give people a chance but atm I’m so happy just doing my own thing, cause there’s someone cool I’m happy to hold out for and i’m content with that…
And if anything I would probably say that I was a bit too open before and willing to mirror so many different personalities to try and make something work and that’s not the way to go about it… 
Love is the most subjective subject ever, everyone has their own opinions on it and everyone goes about it completely differently and so I guess it’s whatever works for you and I’m trying to find what works for me :)

What do you think Supergirl fans should do about Jeremy Jordan?

like.. let it go

you don’t have to forgive him or forget it happened, but the dude does have a good track record, which obviously doesn’t make this okay, but means this is his first time majorly fucking up about anything. after his first bad apology, he made another & is on twitter trying to listen & learn from fans. if it were me, & i was trying, & people still kept sending me death threats & nasty comments, i’d get tired of trying & just stop. & that’s what’s going to happen.

i used to be the kind of person to immediately go after any celebrity if they made the smallest mistake, & guess what? it was tiring & boring & looking back on it, half the stuff wasn’t even that bad in the long run

i promise that every single person jumping down jeremy’s throat has, just like him, said something offensive (without the intent of being offensive) but unlike him, has gotten away away with it because they’re not famous so nobody really cares what they say & won’t blow it out of proportion

a long post about the message of the blurryface era

all the blurryface music videos (and heathens) seem to be pretty different from the rest but all of them have the same theme, which is that connection with friends is the best way to cope, and no one is really alone.

heathens/heavydirtysoul - these two music videos parallel each other closely as i talked about in my last post. both start with tyler in a dark and unfamiliar place. he is sad and withdrawn. then, he sees josh. josh is drumming furiously and doesn’t notice tyler. 

in both music videos tyler is represented by dark motifs (rooms, clothes, etc.) while josh’s motifs are glowing and bright. heathens - he’s drumming on a glowing box, which eventually becomes the stage on which he and tyler play. heavydirtysoul - his drums spark flames with every hit; they grow larger and eventually consume tyler as well. 

both videos reach a climax in which tyler and josh interact with each other for the first time. the light (heathens) and flame (hds) grows to a blinding maximum and the two are rocking out together. josh is no longer ignoring tyler. tyler is no longer withdrawn; he is interacting with josh and for the moment his anxiety is gone. it’s a release but it’s not a painful one. he is coping. 

and then in the end everything is back to normal - no yellow suit, no light, no flames. tyler is still there alone. blurryface is as present as ever. and the implication is that he has imagined josh. this is why josh didn’t notice tyler both times. he was merely an attempt for tyler to find someone to relate to. a cathartic figment of imagination. an imagination of light that tyler hasn’t found yet. 

and what these songs mean in relation to the videos is clear. “all my friends are heathens” - there are so many people here going through the same thing as me, and while the general public considers us freaks, we are all here together and ready to stay that way. “can you save my heavydirtysoul” - implies desperately trying to find a way out of the situation. imagining salvation so fervently that it manifests as almost reality. salvation, here, is josh and the flames. 

lane boy - this one is kind of similar to heathens and heavydirtysoul in that it starts with tyler, alone and contemplating, in the dark. but this time he’s worried about what he has done to become successful, and whether it’s good enough, and whether fame will change him and limit him. all these worries are new to the band, because they’re at the beginning of their rise to fame at this point. and in the video the dark road in the woods symbolizes that they’re in the dark and they’re being careful. stay low they say. 

and then they’re playing on a stage, and everything is forgotten, and they REFUSE to stay low. if you notice in the video the moment tyler sees josh on stage, that is the moment he breaks his silence and starts to dance. to me this video represents that even though not everyone in the crowd might like what the band is doing, and even though there are critics behind that stage and out in that world, being able to play in front of thousands, together, tyler and josh, is worth it. at the end of this video is the realization that having each other means much more than success. 

stressed out - i think this video illustrates the point the most obviously, but it does a great job handling the dichotomy between wanting to grow up and not wanting to grow up. obviously tyler and josh would rather hang out with each other, with no responsibilities, and make music without having to worry about how it is going to be received. and part of the music video is the deliberate denial of reality, and the fantasy of regressing into teenagerhood. but the last part? that’s the acknowledgement that they’re not always going to be kids and life will not be easy. tyler is walking down the street, alone, and without the backpack and the tricycle. this is a sign he’s maturing. and blurryface, he’s there too. i think that entire scene is representative of coming of age.

ride/fairly local - like heathens and heavydirtysoul, i think there’s strong evidence these videos parallel each other. both take place in an isolated location and make use of very polarized (no pun intended) environments. ride - the daytime and the nighttime. fairly local - the icy house and the red hallway. 

so in ride, i think it’s really important that the verses and the bridge take place at night. this is where tyler is doing all his worrying. he doesn’t know what his place in life is and what his relationship to others is. who would you live for, who would you die for, would you ever kill? he’s overanalyzing. he’s in the dark, both literally and metaphorically, about everything. and he doesn’t know where he stands with anyone. he can’t see. he’s wearing dark glasses at night. josh is nowhere to be seen. and then the chorus is where he lets up. he acknowledges that there is a lot to worry about and a lot to analyze over, but he can still enjoy his life. even though he’s hurling through the unfamiliar course of life he can still take the time to look at the things that he loves. and the light comes on, and he can look at the beauty that’s around him, and he can see that there are people and things that mean a lot to him even though he’s questioning it all. 

and then we have fairly local, where the majority of the video takes place in an icy house. the whole video seems very disconnected from the rest of the world. it’s freezing and desolate, both tyler and josh seem to ignore each other, and their demeanor is cold and apathetic. they’re trying very hard to remain unemotional, closed off, unable to see the damage they do to themselves and others. but that denial of their own feelings - that’s where blurryface manifests. he’s what’s causing their isolation, he’s there in the red hallway, changing into something darker and darker as tyler and josh continue to distance themselves.

and a thing i like about fairly local is that the quiet and desolate atmosphere of the video completely contradicts the lyrics of the song. “im fairly local, ive been around, ive seen the streets, youre walking down.” “the few, the proud, and the emotional.” he’s talking about the fanbase, and josh, and jenna, and everyone he’s been able to connect with. and the sense of group mentality and empathy are completely antithetical to the cold, quiet video that they represent breaking out of that atmosphere. 

tear in my heart - this one is an oddball. all the music videos from this era have the common thread of using human connection as a symbol of coping with blurryface. most videos choose to represent that with the relationship between tyler and josh, but this video uses tyler and jenna instead. i think the content of the video is pretty straightforward, and a lot of people have dived into this theory, but the scene in which jenna beats up tyler is important. a common interpretation is that this scene actually represents jenna beating up blurryface. blurryface doesn’t give up without a fight, of course. wrestling with such a character, such a deeply rooted part of your thoughts, is going to cause some distress. there is pain involved in battling your own mind, but the pain is a sign that you are able to fight, that you’re doing it. sometimes you gotta bleed to know that you’re alive and have a soul. but it takes someone to come around and show you how. jenna and tyler’s love for each other is what gives tyler the power to challenge blurryface, but he won’t be able to do that without some pain involved. 

and now i think i understand why blurryface is the name of this strange part of everyone’s brain. the literal opposite of the word blurryface is of course clear face. as in being able to see people’s faces clearly. blurryface is the opposite of seeing people for who they truly are. blurryface is the opposite of joining people who are fighting the same battles as you and really connecting with them. the opposite of blurryface is friendship and truth, and we must always find comfort in the fact that we are not alone. there are always people out there for you. and that’s how you defeat a demon. 

It JUST NOW clicked for me that in GotG2 we go from this:

Kraglin: No matter how many times Quill betrays you, you protect him! Like none of the rest of us matter!

to …

Kraglin: *apologizes for accidentally starting a mutiny*
Yondu: *gives him another chance pretty much instantly*

I mean, obviously I knew both of those things happened in the movie, and I might be the last person to get from Point A to Point B. But it’d never occurred to me that there’s such strong mirroring between the two scenes - Kraglin’s main source of resentment is that he’s the loyal one, while disloyal Peter screws up and turns away from the Ravagers and is still forgiven; but when Kraglin ends up in Peter’s shoes, as the betrayer, Yondu does treat him just like he treats Peter, and takes him back. By the end of the movie, Kraglin knows Peter better than he’s ever known him. He’s been him.

… In general, Yondu’s inability to hold a grudge against people he cares about is breaking my heart completely at odds, in a very Yondu kind of way, with his hardened space pirate persona. It’s not just Peter and Kraglin, but also Stakar – he’s furious at Stakar, but what he wants isn’t revenge or compensation, it’s just to be let back into the Ravager family that cast him out. 

And it’s not little things. It’s Peter costing him the score of a lifetime, inadvertently turning part of his crew against him, and running off across the galaxy with a new family; it’s Kraglin turning the rest of his crew against him and getting most of his loyal crewmates killed; it’s Stakar exiling him from the only home and family he’s ever known. 

He’s just so damn … complicated. He’s a thief and a liar and a killer. He’s also a guy who loves with all his heart (no matter how hard he tries to stamp out that loyal-to-the-death part of himself because he considers it a weakness) and … gah … I just have a lot of feelings about Yondu.

@sevi007 pointed out awhile back that the two people in Yondu’s crew who he apparently spent the most time around, and therefore had the most influence on (Peter and Kraglin) are also the two kindest, most open and empathic and generally sweetest people in the whole gang. They both ended up resenting him too, because, well, Yondu and his A+ people skills, but it’s just a fascinating thing that people who’ve been on the receiving end of Yondu’s mentoring seem to turn out reasonably decent; there’s something fundamentally decent in Yondu that he doesn’t manage to hide as much as he tries to.

Age is but a Number, Love is Infinite

Dean x Reader

Word Count: 2,775

Warnings: age difference(nothing underage the reader is 21), language, implied sexy times

Request: Hey it’s ok if you don’t wanna do this but I was wondering if you could write a fic where Dean is his current age and the one reader just turned 20 but like her and Dean have known each other for a long time and have been together for a while and other people always say stuff about their relationship but they’re still just really happy together, maybe w/ a bit of smut?

A/N: I changed a few things like I said I would but overall I think I got what you wanted!! Shout out to @leatherwhiskeycoffeeplaid for being an awesome beta!! I hope you all like it and feedback is always appreciated!!! :D

Regarding the PASH Article

I’m not usually the type to make tumblr posts but I see people freaking out over this interview and honestly while I will say that Kubo’s comment WAS REALLY NOT A GOOD THING FOR HER TO SAY it wasn’t nearly as drastic as people are thinking it is in translation. 

To start off, what she originally said in Japanese was as follows:  「結婚的な意味合いよりも、部活の仲間同士で同じものを持とう、みたいなノリに近いです。」How I translated it personally was “More than the marriage-like meaning [of the rings], they have the feeling of partners representing a club.“ 

Note, the  合いよりも or “MORE THAN” aspect of this. This is not saying that it means it wasn’t also with marriage intentions. Simply, that the omamori or good luck purpose was the main intention for Yuuri. However it doesn’t change the fact that 1) he bought literal wedding rings 2) he bought them after closely looking at JJ’s engagement 3) he verbatim followed a traditional Russian style engagement 4) Victor himself referred to them as engaged.

The way I always interpreted the scene was that Yuuri himself did the engagement in a way that was reflective of his anxiety. He never explicitly asked Victor to marry him. He absolutely knew Victor knew what he was getting at, however Yuuri himself used very ambiguous language and painted it as “good luck” as a way out in case Victor rejected him. Later, when Phichit announced that they were married, Victor claimed that they were engaged. This sealed that particular meaning of the rings. I think Victor knew what he was doing, given leaked storyboards. 

Yuuri: For good luck!

Victor: (big eyed) So that’s what he means.

Victor, given his revealed thoughts and expression, always knew that Yuuri was teetering around this issue. People ignore that in the anime, he also looked kind of hurt. This is something Japanese fans picked up on, but not Western fans.

And this following smile always looked a little fake to me

That sort of reminded me of his OTHER obviously fake smile

Which still does not negate this

I actually find it kind of amusing. A lot of people have written about how this was the exact moment they got engaged, yet now the fact that it wasn’t explicitly so before is the worst thing ever.

Also I’d like to point out how so much of this series is Yuuri being indirect as hell about their relationship and giving Victor whiplash. Why must best boy suffer so much ;_;


Regarding everything else and Kubo’s ambiguity she does seem like the type that’s “if it’s not explicitly stated it’s up for interpretation” type of writer. Which is annoying and stupid, but it’s so obvious that they’re a thing. Even everything else Kubo has said such as how they’re “soulmates” in “true love”, how she talks about homophobia not existing in their world, how she positively interacts with tweets talking about how they’re a couple. The most damning thing is that she has the mentality of “let the show speak for itself.” Even though she is making some very bad wording decisions roughly half the time (the other half she pretty much outright talks about how they’re a couple) the show pretty clearly does so.

You also have Otsuka outright saying things such as how “When you show scenes that leave no room for other interpretations there’s a risk of it not sitting well with some people, but Kubo and Yamamoto always plunged forward with no hesitation” (source)   He’s the producer and where the money is, so if anyone would be big on not allowing confirmation, it would be him. But he is. He is very encouraging of Victor/Yuuri. You also have Sayo, who if anything outranks Kubo in terms of story, we just never hear from her due to her private nature. Who knows what she would say. 


TL;DR Kubo said something really dumb but it changes absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things and wasn’t as “no-homo” as people in the western fandom believe

The pie is really good. Eating it while Jack’s small blond boyfriend glares at him (and whooo boy, Zimms, you have a type) is less good. But it’s not like Kent hasn’t eaten under duress before, too. Witness: the time the Aces stopped at the same restaurant as a busload of Caps fans.

Actually, that was probably worse. Kent doesn’t think Bittle is going to poison him. Alexei would have something to say about it.

Kent can feel his lip pulling back, though, his whole attitude settling into ‘well, you don’t like me? so fuck you.’ You are a goddamn adult, Kent tells himself. “This pie is really good,” Kent says instead. “How do you get it so it’s not super juicy? When Alexei and I tried last summer, we practically flooded the oven.”

Bitty unbends half an inch. “Instant tapioca,” he says.

Kent eats more pie.

“Were you dating then?” Bitty asks. “Last summer?”

it honestly makes me fucking laugh to consider how much Jade probably incessantly teases Jake and Karkat like WOW you actually fucking did it you unironically fell for a strider you LITERALLY fell for all their ridiculously striderian charms and are in love amazing bravo well done I’m so happy for you and your heartwarming misfortune :) :) :D

Jake is just like LOOK………………… I KNOW. OK? I KNOW….

and dirk is just sweating staring at dave like ok but what does THAT mean and dave is creeping off exit stage right no one look at me I don’t even know these people I know NOTHING and can speak no words about the extremely knowing tone in this vaguely canine woman’s tone good bye

meanwhile karkat is just like look, that garbled flashing barely organic monstrosity you’re obviously so intrigued by is technically like at least a full quarter strider too so I do not want to fucking hear it jade harley do you understand me you are no better than the rest of us get off your fucking pedestal I swear to god

So I have been checking up discussions from last year about Santa Claus being Black and how much of an unnecessary controversy it caused and it got me thinking, does the public even know if Batman was white or do people just assume he is? cuz lets be real, the man is covered from head to toe and only appear at nights, that’s not enough to know someone ethnicity so what if every kid in Gotham believe that Batman is the same race as them and will not allow someone to tell them otherwise?

.

White kid: But why do you think Batman is black?!

Black kid: Why do you think he isn’t?

White kid: Why? have you see his chin skin? its white so how can he be black?

Black kid: Heelloo, black people with vitiligo exist so….

White kid: Bu- thats-….that’s just an unlikely to thing to be. Thats all. 

Korean kid: Well if you’re so hang up on skin color then Batman might be Korean? we have fair skin too.

White kid: What?? how can he be Korean if he doesn’t have Asian eyes??

Korean kid: Ah, well not all of us have “Asian Eyes” and even if we do, Batman has his mask on him at all time, so how do you know he doesn’t have “asian eyes” under there?

White kid: Because I’m being logical and going by facts unlike you.

Arab kid: Well if you really wanna be “logical” wouldn’t it make the most sense if Batman was middle-eastern?

White kid: And how does THAT make any sense?!?

Arab kid: Well I mean the current Robin is obviously Arab and unlike all the other Robins he refer to Batman as “father” which would mean Batman is his father so it would make sense if Batman too was the same ethnicity as his son.

White kid: Okay all of you really need to stop attacking me right now because Batman is white just like Jesus is >:(

Arab kid: Oh boy if you think Jesus was white then I got some news for you…

normally, i’d be at home, bending jocelyn’s ear, but… she’s away in london for ages - a big trial.

LEMME JUST ANALYSE THIS IN UNNECESSARY DETAIL………

- first of all, jocelyn is still alive, phew

- THEY’RE STILL TOGETHER!!

- LIVING TOGETHER!!

- maggie says it so nonchalantly to paul that i’m assuming their relationship is common knowledge in the town

- jocelyn didn’t give up after losing the trial last series, she got back on the horse and is getting gigs in LONDON again. BIG gigs. you go, girl!!

- also, gathering from the fact that she’s working in london, her macular degeneration is not too bad yet??

- ‘normally’. so maggie totally goes home and rants to jocelyn about stuff, amazing

- maggie sitting on a bench in the churchyard instead of going home to an empty house

the FEELS have returned and i have welcomed them with open arms
