Hii there! :3 First of all I wanted to praise you for all the work and effort you've put into the whole 'character introduction' page. You did an amazing job! :D I really like that everyone has such a strong and complex personality (I think I already mentioned this in an ask before ^^“) Your story isn't as ordinary as most of the legacies I've read so far (no offence to other legacies! :s). It's more like reading a really good book with pictures as a bonus. ^^ Anyway I also like that... (1/2)

oh my god, thank you so much, it means a lot to me to know that someone really enjoys my story and I want to thank you for reading it ❤

I really don’t know what to say, you just made my day, really, I just love you ;-;

Curious question: I'm rereading Dash it All, and there you named Castle's 4th book "High Heat", and Richard Castle's 8th book it's called High Heat. I didn't remember that, did you? Actually, there are lots of things you wrote first that happened on the show. I love this!

Oh man, really?! I hadn’t realized that either. I mean sometimes I wrote things based off little scraps of info they gave us in episodes and they later extrapolated on those things - but it wasn’t really a new idea from me, it was me being observant. So sometimes it seems like I had some insight but then really no, I wrote that after an episode aired that mysteriously alluded to that thing. But yeah High Heat, that’s all me. :D

Hard to argue with that logic.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  

(Thank you to the MANY lovely people that recommended this scene from Deathly Hallows!)

he was a king.

this was the year he was going to die.

may or may not have spent my entire sunday finding obscure indie movies to steal clips from to make this video. idk, you can’t prove anything. 

Things to remember about Book!Katniss Everdeen

-She loves her leg hair
-She is a fashion hoe™, she screams whenever she sees a clothes,
-“I act delighted, but I have zero interest in the Capitol people. They are only distractions from the food.” SAME GURL SAME
-She doesn’t know what she’s doing 100% of the time??
-She literally never asked for any of this romance BS and she wants it GONE
-Literally her response to bread boi saying something romantic is “ugh”
-SHE IS FRIENDS WITH ALL GIRLS, GIRLS ARE AMAZING AND SHE DOESN’T HAVE TIME TO TEAR OTHER GIRLS DOWN ye I know she kills ppl but like,, Katniss Everdeen loves girls ok
-SHE’S 16 NOT 26
-She’s p selfish at first and only thinks about her own self preservation when it comes to the uprising, and is definitely no martyr-hero, both the Capitol and the rebellion use her as a symbol and romanticize her as something she’s not
-Literally when she figures out a rebellion is happening she’s like “GALE LET’S LEAVE” she’s not a hero/rebel at first she’s just a normal person who didn’t ask for any of this drama
-SHE’S A NORMAL PERSON WHO DIDN’T ASK FOR ANY OF THIS DRAMA
-Also her “talent” is fashion except Cinna does all of it and I find that hilarious

After a moment, Blue said, “Did you really grow up here, Ronan?”
“In this barn?”
“You know exactly what I mean.”
He started to answer, but pain welled up, sudden and shocking. The only way he could get the sentiment out was by drowning the words with acid. It came out sounding like he hated the place. Like he couldn’t wait to get away. Mocking and cruel, he said, “Yes. This was my castle.

I fucking love Gothic architecture so much. Gross demons and judgy saints hunching everywhere. Pointed arches and carved foliage. Fucking gargoyles and shit. Setting up the guttering so that the devil can vomit water on you. High cross-rib vaulting. This weird blend of the organic and the demonic in stone. All those oppressive geometrical patterns, the spikes and thorns, the monotony of it all, the way it’s such a precise miracle of engineering meant to raise you up to the glory of God but it’s so heavy and earthy that it drags you to hell simultaneously. It’s the perfect blend of the beautiful and the ghastly, the heavenly and the demonic, glorifying God with its high spires and condemning man with its enclosed vaults and I can never get enough of it.

Sailor Uranus & Sailor Neptune in Amour Eternal Visual Book
scanned by me - please do not repost

Cursed Child was dumb and here are some reasons why

(warning: spoilers. this probably won’t make sense unless you’ve read the script. far be it from me to recommend this kneazle-vomit of a play, though, so if you haven’t read it, good)

  • the plot is messy, strange, and childish. there’s only one time-turner left!! how will the characters cope when said time-turner is lost? oh lol they’ll just use this other convenient time-turner. for convenient plot points, see also: harry can suddenly speak parseltongue again, because well he just kind of needs to be able to do that
  • Harry cursing “oh dumbledore” without a hint of irony. like really? really
  • the characterisation was a pile of dragon dung and we all freaking know it. let’s break it down into individual characters here because fuck if I can stop at one bullet point for this
  • Hermione: the brightest witch of her age, the constant crusader for the unloved and the unrepresented, whose successful career and capacity for kindness apparently rest in the hands of her romance with Ron Weasley. oh… but wait. it sounds a little familiar, this story. hear me out. let’s see now, a highly intelligent person who falls in love but doesn’t have that love reciprocated, and who then becomes a really fucking mean teacher at Hogwarts through bitterness. sound like anyone we know? fam, they tried to parallel Hermione and Snape. Hermione and Snape. this being the same Snape who sneered in Hermione’s face when she’d been visibly hexed, and made her cry; the same Snape who bullied Neville Longbottom for years, while Hermione muttered instructions under her breath to help him. if you want to tell me that Hermione would ever allow herself to become a Snape parallel then I will kindly invite you to shove a dirigible plum where there’s no lumos solem
  • Harry: when Harry was at his angriest in OOTP, and he’s yelling at Ron and Hermione, there’s one thing we notice. everything he yells is true. he means it. he’s bitter about it and he’s loud and furious, but he doesn’t have the kind of anger that just says anything to cause hurt, that speaks without thinking, not even at this crisis point in his life. are you really going to tell me that the boy who knows down to his bones what it’s like to feel rejected, and misunderstood, and alone, would ever say - even in anger - that he wishes Albus wasn’t his son? I am going to snap wands over this
  • Cedric. and this one burns. because Cedric was brave and he was true, and he had a sense of justice that led him to telling Harry about the way the golden egg worked, and led him to sharing the winning of the triwizard tournament with Harry. he died, he was murdered at the age of seventeen, embodying a sense of justice so strong, an innocence, a goodness. Cedric Diggory - the boy who believed in fairness with an integrity that is astounding - becoming party to the indiscriminate killing and casual torture of the Death Eaters just because he had his head engorged one time… is about as likely as Hagrid stomping on a dragon egg. it’s an insult to who he was and I am going to engorge the entire bodies of the writers of this fucking play so that hopefully they’ll just float away too, with all the grace and likeability of Aunt Marge
  • Voldemort: can we all agree now that Voldemort would not father a child. the idea of him experiencing lust seems out of character; the idea of him giving into a base urge seems more so. it’s too human, too vulgar, too physical; it would associate him with the common and the mainstream in a way that I contend he would find repulsive. Tom Riddle Sr. was trapped by Merope into sex and romance; to have sex would be to bring himself closer to his parents, down to the level of a Muggle and a witch who lacked power and craved love, two things Voldemort could never, ever stand. no. he wouldn’t have sex just because he wanted to; he’d be repelled by the idea. what other reason could there be for him to do the nasty with Bellatrix? to ensure the continuation of his line? that makes even less sense. achieving immortality for Voldemort was always a question of magic, a personal quest. he wouldn’t go for a messy, physical back-up plan. he always thought that he would win. if anything, he would see a child as a future threat, not a security. another being in the world with the promise of his power? he wouldn’t risk it.
  • what the fuck was that trolley witch scene though
  • “for voldemort and valour” are you serious. is there a Gryffindor spy in the Voldemort camp laughing their ass off because they actually managed to get that one through. and are they ten years old
  • overall, the message of the play infuriated me. Delphi was the child of Voldemort, so she was evil. Albus was the child of Harry, so he was good. Scorpius was the son of Draco, so he should have been evil, but Draco’s actually kind of good now and his mother was nice, so he can be good too. where is the complexity? was five hours of drama not enough to find some shades of morality? where is the hope, where is the resonance, in a story that says that good begets good and evil begets evil, and nothing can really change? the Harry Potter book series was about a boy who grew up with something inside him that was utterly evil, and who rejected it, fought against it, changed the path that fate seemed to wish him to walk. not slytherin, not slytherin. we had Regulus Black and Sirius Black, who rejected their pasts, whose heritage and whose House stood for nothing against their principles, their eventual and separate forms of bravery. we had Remus Lupin, who transformed into a monster but never became one, not even after years of rejection and pain. we had the word mudblood, and we watched Hermione fight it, we knew it was ridiculous to label someone based on their blood. and now… we have the Cursed Child. a play which is flat, and stupid, and tells us that your parentage inevitably dictates your character - and that how you’re treated is how you’ll treat others. dear writers, in the words of Albus Dumbledore, you fail to recognise that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be. you fucks.

ok, but can we appreciate that the egyptian crossovers happen just after the fight with gaia, and magnus chase then starts that winter i think? meaning after the titan war things happened incredibly quickly

so let’s think about annabeth and percy, and everything that’s happened to them after the last olympian: 

  • Percy got kidnapped with his memory taken away, and it turns out roman gods exist
  • They had to travel to the ancient lands and kill a bunch of giants in another Great Prophecy
  • They had to face Gaia, a primordial
  • They discovered the egyptian gods exist, met up with some egyptian magicians, and destroyed some egyptian villains
  • They discover the norse gods exist; Annabeth’s cousin is a dead warrior; they find out the Chase family attracts immortals because they’re descended from a powerful line; and they also have to help said cousin doing who knows what
  • Apollo, one of the, ahem, annoying gods, becomes mortal, communications between the camps break down, and it turns out some roman emperors are still alive and kicking

like honestly they just finished the titan war… this was supposed to be the big event in their lifetime and then in pretty much a year and a half they go from thinking the greek gods are the only ones to exist, to finding out there are roman, egyptian and norse gods, and some of the gods don’t even have the decency to stay immortal, like these poor souls

do you remember when they had a year’s break between each quest and now look
