A/n: Inspired by The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas and Life by Rap Monster. The world is very different from what I’ve written before, so please tell me how you feel about it, both the positive and negative. Thank you!   

Description: In the world there are two types of people, them and Carriers. You’re a Carrier, one of the people that have been selected the bear the sadness of the world. You thought that was how you would live and die–at least you did, before tonight. 

        April 1st             

        I always wonder why I write if I’m the only one that will ever read it. But even if someone else did, would it matter? It’s not like they could ever understand, at least not the average person. I wonder, if they read what I had to say, listened to my thoughts and experiences, if they would feel guilty. Or maybe they’d fool themselves into thinking it’s not their fault, telling themselves that there isn’t anything they could do about it, so why care, right?

        For a long time, I wondered, why? Why me? At times I even ask, “Why couldn’t it be someone else?” but then I realize that despite everything they’ve put me through, I would never wish it on another person.

        I hear them talk about people like me sometimes, like if I’m not there, which I guess further solidifies their act. Yesterday I overheard some boy say something like “It can’t be that bad. It’s not she’s bleeding and dying on the floor. It could be worse.”

          He’s lucky enough that he’ll never have to find out that there are things that hurt more than physical pain, things that stir something so deep and disgusting in your heart that it makes you want to tear into your chest and rip it out, hoping that maybe if you hugged your own heart, you would finally have company.

          I wonder if anyone else wakes up every day wishing they were dead.

I just marathoned Sherlock with 2 literature professors. Both male and straight! They'd never seen it before and were absolutely delighted, picking out metaphors and subtext as they were watching it. Both agreed it's probably a gay love story. They pretty much came up with their own tjlc-theory on the spot. So there's more out there in the straight world than just antis. Thought this story would amuse you tjlc-ers. But then literature profs are used to Andre Gide, Oscar Wilde et al. No surprise.

Hi Nonny! What a lovely story! It’s nice to know that TJLCer’s and the general audience and media weren’t the only ones who picked up on the subtext of the series. I really REALLY still don’t think we are wrong, Nonny. I REALLY DON’T. The fact that everything took such a drastic turn in TFP is a large part of why I don’t think we’re done with S4 yet.

I can’t breathe! They did it again with Fitzsimmons! My heart is broken. It’s not fair! They deserve happiness. I hate what they did to them. But at the same time, I love how they did it.
Well, the series is a masterpiece. I really love it. But she brought so much pain.
I chose this song because it does right accents. And yes, she is my native language. And I really hope you like it.

I was a huge fan of your Red Robin run! Even though you're no longer drawing Tim Drake, he's my absolute favorite character, and your art really brought him to life and added to my reading experience. (I'm doing a Red Robin re-read and now I have feelings about it again, so thanks for being amazing!)

That’s awesome that you’re reading it again, I really learned a lot through that series and it was my first, biggest break in comics. It makes me happy that people still love it as much as I do.

Word Count: 3,113 (oops)

With Dean no where to be found, you make the worst decision in your life and sell your soul to save the only man you have ever truly loved. Sam then is forced to face the world alone and is left heartbroken and scared.

A/N: I may make this into a series if you like it enough, I really wanted to write a really powerful story

Demons were never easy to hunt, no matter how many times you hunted them. They were cocky most of the time, but they were strong and strategic, something that matched a hunter’s skill set. Demons came in to a fight prepared to kill, ready at all times to make the most damage possible.

The Winchesters were no acceptation to the hunters they planned to damage, which leads you to your current situation.

You, Sam, and Dean all entered this hunt believing it was a normal demon situation. You three had entered a large barn where you had thought the demons you were tracking were hiding out. However, with what you had thought was four demons was really ten, all ready to attack you and the two brothers.

Before any of you recognized the problem, you, Dean, and Sam decided to split up in an attempt to cover more ground. Dean had gone into the main barn, Sam had went into the abandoned stables, and you left towards the garage where the tools and tractor used to be.

That was the exact moment when things had started to go south.

Originally, you had thought that you had the luck of catching two out of the four demons. You yelled and screamed for help, thinking that the brothers were just hunting after two. 

What had happened in the garage was blurred, all you could remember was struggling to keep up with the fast pace demons and ending the battle with severe cuts along your abdomen and arms.

You rushed into the stables where Sam had been, in hopes to alert him that the job was almost done. However, you weren’t prepared to see two demons dead on the floor and one, pushing an angel blade through Sam’s chest as the other held the large hunter back.

In that moment, your heart shattered. You wanted to cry but couldn’t, for rage clouded your eyes as you sprinted over to the soulless creatures that impaled the love of your life.

Quickly, you murdered both of them, stealing their lives away effortlessly, taking pleasure in your revenge.

Now, you lied on the floor next to Sam’s unconscious body, your heavy flannel shirt off your body and on his open wound.

Hey! I read almost all your writings on Ryuko and Senketsu (on your 2 blogs ah ah!) And I found it wonderful! Not seriously it is really good work, thank you for exist! (I like this ship more than anything argh). However I have a question that arises in my head recently. In the Ryuko / Senketsu relationship can we speak of "love at first sight" or "crush"? Because I find that their relationship is developed fairly quickly in the series! So I would like to know your opinion on it?

Woah, Anon! That is a lot of essays. Thank you!

As for your question, well, even with all the innuendo, I would still argue that, in canon, Ryuko and Senketsu’s relationship is platonic. To quote myself:

I definitely understand the appeal and significance of fictional relationships gaining romantic confirmation, but Kill la Kill is a series that strongly pushes the idea that a relationship does not have to be romantic in order to be important—and Ryuko and Senketsu are the heart of this concept. They’ll risk their lives for each other without a moment’s hesitation, they’re honest and open with their thoughts and feelings when alone together, they’ll make jokes and statements tinged with romantic and sexual implications, they’re depicted holding hands and going on a date on two official cards, but ultimately, above all else, they always want to be together.

Maybe nobody knows what this means, maybe (probably) they themselves don’t know what this means, but the point of the series isn’t to define it—the point is that it’s valuable no matter what it is, and that its incomprehensibility is beautiful and powerful.

So, I would say that a “love at first sight” or a “crush” regarding Ryuko and Senketsu isn’t the intended interpretation of their relationship, since the intention—in my mind, anyway!—is instead that you don’t have to have this romantic, “love at first sight” situation in order for you to have a valuable relationship with someone.

That said, you might argue for a sort of “love at first taste” regarding Senketsu towards Ryuko, as he notes in episode 13 that he gets a “feeling” from drinking Ryuko’s blood—that grows stronger every time he does so—that tells him that he was born to be worn by Ryuko and Ryuko alone. As it turns out, Senketsu was, quite literally, made for Ryuko, and in this sense, is very much her soulmate, something Mako notes explicitly in the OVA.

However, once more, I feel Kill la Kill aims to say that soulmates don’t have to be romantic! You can be someone’s destined, special person without kissing into the sunset, and what I’ve always loved about Ryuko’s “confession” in episode 22 is that she says that both Mako and Senketsu are “more than friends” to her and that it’s not just romantic love that’s strong enough to save the day and not just romantic love that connotes a meaningful bond.

Ryuko: The word “friends” don’t come close to covering it! They’re something more, something I can’t explain! That’s what Mako Mankanshoku and Senketsu are to me!

I’m probably talking in circles, so I guess I could put it this way: While I wouldn’t exactly argue that Ryuko and Senketsu have a “love at first sight” situation in the romantic sense, there is something right away that draws the two together: familiarity.

Quoting myself again:

Ryuko is (rightfully) very put off by Senketsu when they first meet, but she immediately calms down and (especially in the English dub) drops her “tough girl” attitude as soon as he explains himself and reveals that he doesn’t really know what’s going on at all… just as she doesn’t. As I wrote in my master Ryuko and Senketsu relationship essay:

Oh, Ryuko wants to know Senketsu, alright. Even though she distances herself, even though she’s not looking for friends, she sees something in Senketsu that she feels inexplicably drawn to.

It’s a bit How to Train Your Dragon. She sees herself, in him. Someone confused. Someone searching for answers.

It’s also worth it to note that Ryuko is desperate for friendship and companionship—it’s all she’s ever really wanted. Finding Senketsu is comforting to Ryuko because she feels he’s just like her. Senketsu is stuck in the same situation she is, and he’s just as unsure about it, too. Far from being the wise mentor figure, Senketsu is someone Ryuko can instantly relate to for being on exactly the same page as she is.

Similar reasons can be argued for why Ryuko is so quick to soften up to the (ultimately) traitorous Maiko Ogure as well. Ryuko sees Maiko as someone stuck in the same outlandish situation as she is (No-Tardies Day) and sees that Maiko doesn’t give up, just like she doesn’t! And all that, combined with Ryuko’s strong desire for friends, leads to a quickly-budding “friendship” between her and Maiko. While this “friendship” ends badly when Maiko’s true nature is revealed, the interaction makes an important point about Ryuko’s character: she is quite soft and sweet and wanting of friendship, even if her tough girl, hardass attitude doesn’t let these qualities on. It only makes sense that Ryuko would be eager to be close to Senketsu.

To wrap this up, I will say that if there are any crushes going on between Senketsu and Ryuko, they’re the kind of crushes that neither party is quite (consciously) aware of. After all, this is Ryuko’s reaction when Mako declares that Senketsu is “the one [Ryuko] loves the most!,” and it’s not an “Omg how embarrassing that you found out my secret!” sort of reaction, but instead, “Holy crap is that the impression you get from us, really?”

Similarly, in a preview for episode 11, Senketsu considers who amongst the girls at Honnouji Academy are “his type” and does consider Ryuko, but… concludes by saying that she—and everyone else he thought of—are “too peculiar!” for him. So, in the same way, if there is a crush here, it’s probably unconscious.

And, really, that all brings me back to what I quoted at the very, very top of this long post: Ryuko and Senketsu don’t know how to define how they feel about each other. Ryuko explicitly says so (episode 22): she doesn’t know what Senketsu is to her; she only knows that he can’t be defined as a “friend” alone.

And it just makes me all the more upset about Senketsu’s premature death, because with Senketsu gone, the two of them will never get to sort out how they feel about each other. Maybe Ryuko and Senketsu were crushing on each other and didn’t know it, or maybe they just want to be friends, or maybe there’s one-sided romantic attraction that they have to work through, or maybe they’ll always be this beautiful, incomprehensible, who-knows-what, but they’ll never know, because they were torn apart from each other. Anything Ryuko and Senketsu could have been is lost with Senketsu.

With the weight of the world on their shoulders, Ryuko and Senketsu didn’t exactly have the time to sort out the nature of their relationship—and it’s not like it mattered in the moment. They cared for each other and they didn’t need to fuss about definitions and words to explain their love. But when they should have been able to relax and really think about their lives and future and relationship, Senketsu is taken away.  

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Kill la Kill ends in a tragedy, and a lot of that tragedy is that Ryuko and Senketsu are never allowed to further explore how they feel.

Hi~ i'm so sorry if you've already talked about this before but I read that you were originally planning on translating Hinekure Chaser as a joint project with sals scans. But it seems like they haven't really been active since last year so i was wondering if it's been dropped?

Hi~

Yes it was supposed to be a joint project with Sals Scans. I haven’t heard back from them in months, so we consider it as dropped since it was originally their project. I really love that series so much but we just don’t have the time and the staff to work on it alone.
Let’s hope Sals Scans will be back…

What's your favorite book in the Psy/Changeling series?

This is a loaded question.

Hostage to Pleasure was the first book I read. I really love what she did with Clay and Shaya. I thought it was such a different take on the Psy/Changeling than what she had before, more of enemies to friends than she really pulled off anywhere else. So that is my first love of the series.

Mine to Posses, Branded by Fire, Play of Passion, Kiss of Snow  and Tangle of Need are also books I really like. But I have a very strong preference for Changeling/other pairings. Its not that I haven’t enjoyed the Psy/Psy or Psy/Human pairings (I have) but for me personally, I feel like the changeling pairings really showcase her strength as a writer. Its part of the reason I have enjoyed her Guild Hunter series over her past few changeling books (and why I am looking forward to Silver Silence).

Out of all of Jack's videos made so far, what would be your favourite one? Or if there's more than one that you enjoy most, what's your favourite series that he's done? P.S. Your username handwriting is really beautiful!

oh man.. so many! i really enjoy subnautica as an on-going series, but from completed ones i absolutely loved uncharted 4! also oxenfree! such a beautiful yet creepy game, i loved it! also thank you, but this isn’t my daily handwriting haha, it’s much worse ^^’

Septic Super Week Day 3 and 4

My favourite quote of Jack’s is one that I know a lot of people like, I’m so unoriginal xD but my favourite is ‘Everything’s going to be alright. Maybe not today but eventually”. I tell myself this every day, particularly on my bad days. Thank you Jack for this quote <3

My favourite video of Jack’s… now this is a difficult one because I have so many that I absolutely love. I absolutely love the Reading Your Comments series and all of the Cleverbot Evie videos XD but I also really liked the Anxiety Attacks video he did, because it really showed how much he cares and wants to try and learn and understand what other people go through. This made me admire him even more than I already did. There are others that I really enjoyed too but I think those are some of my top favourites :)

I was already so mad about the crappy quality of Loss (both in animation and story) and they go on and fuck up even more with that poster for 5. 

Don’t get me wrong, I adore Hikari, but why, why on earth would they give a poster to Meiko?! I’m just so done. I love the Digimon series with all my heart so I really, really hope Symbiosis is way better but I just feel like I’m gonna be disappointed again. 

anonymous asked:

Is the original Star Trek TV series any good?

I really really love Star Trek TOS. First two seasons are perfect, once you get past the….cheeseball sets and ‘special effects’, but those things tend to kinda grow on you and become charming in their own ways (they did for me!). Try not to take it all TOO seriously because of it. XD 

We’re spoiled these days with really nice, advanced film/tv production when it comes to sci-fi. The story and the characters in The Original Series is where it’s at.
