i relate to this show so hard

wintersqueen  asked:

"TP crew/writers really seem like they’re pushing to make the case for her presence in a S2" honestly I would be *shocked* if karen doesnt come back as full-time next season, she was so ingrained into this season even while being in so few episodes that it's hard to imagine a punisher show without her & frank

Anonymous said:

I can get why some people are irked by Karen’s limited contributions in The Punisher. But I think it makes sense from a narrative standpoint: the show is about Frank’s past skeletons, and Karen is more or less a latecomer in Frank’s story who has no connections to Kandahar.

I’m putting these two asks together because I think they relate quite well ^^ 

I would be shocked if she didn’t come back and more along the lines of a regular/main, too! The set-up is definitely there. She was so vital to Frank’s actions and state of mind in the episodes she was in  – which were also episodes where Frank was more grounded in the present and with present motivations than not. I think the showrunner actually touched on that in an interview, that it was important for Frank to have some things (people) in the present as a fear motivator of losing or seeing get hurt as well. His focus can’t be entirely on the past; he may want to be a dead man walking, but he does feel, he can form attachments and already has/had a few.

The dynamics that Curtis, Karen, and Micro have with Frank are completely unique from each other and I don’t think the show could’ve been near as well-rounded without Karen’s inclusion. Plus, they’ve laid all these touches of connections with her in TP’s world now. She’s at a point of familiarity with Dinah, she has the other woman’s contact information. She knows about Micro’s role in his Punisher work, she knows who Micro really is. She’s met Billy, and him putting two-and-two together about her and Frank that day if/when he wakes up is not a hard stretch. With episode 10 specifically they really dug her a place in the rest of the universe outside of just interacting with Frank….when the next opportunity arises beyond what the current storyline held.

They’d be foolish to discard that IMO in a season 2, especially with the next and future seasons having to do even more with the present and moving forward into new conspiracies/crimes. Frank’s gotten his closure on Kandahar. The bits of his past that will continue to haunt him and influence him are all ones Karen knows about, can easily come to know about (like his relationship with Billy), or that the story can use the ignorance of as a plot device.

Also – the motion posters. Frank, Karen, Micro. The trio of Frank’s “we operate in the gray and help with the illegal Punisher business” protection squad (Curtis is the precious cinnamon roll of the squad we need to protect at all costs from the illegal shit, okay, he doesn’t deserve the damage he had to go through just from doing the pure and RIGHT things in TP). 

anonymous asked:

how do you ‘love yourself’? how do you understand this concept bts is promoting? how can a person love themself?

i think self love is something everyone perceives differently and practices differently. i think everyone understands the concept differently too? for me its appreciating your own existence and the positive impact it has on other people’s life, realizing that your place in this world is important and that you make others happy. i think thats similar to bts’ mindset too. their previous concepts were about feeling alone and izolated and useless and a lot of people related to that and now theyre doing the opposite to show people that its possible to get out of that mindset. but how i said, for others self love has connection to the appearance, personality traits or whatever so its really hard to say how can one love themself as everyone feels things differently.

OKAY KIDS LEMME SIT YOU TF DOWN AND TELL YOU ABOUT DAMIEN FRICKIN BLOODMARCH

(SPOILERS!!!!!!!! IF YOU HAVE NOT PLAYED HIS ROUTE AND DON’T WANNA BE SPOILED DO NOT READ)

OKAY, FIRST OF ALL 

DAT HAIR, DAT MAKEUP, DAT SWEET OUTFIT 

MY ACNE IS CURED, MY GRADES HAVE GONE UP, LIFE IS A DAMN DREAM AND IT’S ALL BECAUSE OF THIS GOTH PRINCE

HE’S V. PASSIONATE ABOUT EVERYTHING, LIKE ONE OF THE MOST ATTRACTIVE THINGS IN THE WORLD IS WHEN SOMEONE IS PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT THEY LOVE AND HIS HEART IS FULL OF LOVE AND WONDER LET ME TELL YOU

This dude renovated his whole house by himself. 

HIS HOUSE IS SO BEAUTIFUL I  ACTUALLY HAD THE AUDACITY TO FEEL SLIGHTLY JEALOUS OF THIS FALLEN ANGEL

I WANTED TO STEAL HIS HOUSE FROM HIM

DID I MENTION THAT HE HAS NARUTO FANFIC IN HIS VICTORIAN LIBRARY? 

NARUTO X SASUKE SMUT NO LESS

TRULY A MAN OF TASTE

And this dude has A+++++++ parenting AND gardening skills. 

He is an expert on everything Victorian, including the language of flowers and arranging bouquets and writing beautiful letters. 

INSTEAD OF SENDING YOU A MESSAGE ON DADBOOK LIKE SOME PEASANT, HE WRITES YOU GORGEOUS HEARTFELT LETTERS IN FINE CALLIGRAPHY SEALED WITH HIS OWN SIGIL

HE OFFERS TO GIVE YOU A PERSONALIZED BOUQUET WITH YOUR FAVORITE FLOWER ON YOUR FIRST HANGOUT

GIVES YOU HIS HANDKERCHIEF LIKE SOME VAMPIRIC KNIGHT OF OLD

THIS DUDE IS EXTRA AF WITH EVERYTHING HE DOES AND I AM 10000% FOR IT, YES THAT’S SOME GOOOOOOOOOOOOD SHIT, SIGN ME UP

But he also has a sweet and joking side. Despite his Gothic persona, he is actually really scared by horror movies. He takes you out for a date in a graveyard and somehow makes it comforting, enchanting even. He’s always making jokes about things the Victorians COULD have done. 

Damien manages to handle his rebellious teen JUST FINE without making his son feel like he’s being patronized or controlled. He is diplomatic, calm, and loving. He’s a cool dad. 

AND WHEN YOU FINALLY GO ON YOUR THIRD DATE, OH YES YOU ARE IN FOR A SURPRISE. 

DAMIEN BLOODMARCH, MR. BEAUTIFUL PRINCE OF DARKNESS, IS ACTUALLY AN IT GUY WHO VOLUNTEERS AT AN ANIMAL SHELTER IN HIS OFF TIME. 

AND. HE. LOVES. DOGS. 

BLESSED IMAGE, REBLOG FOR GOOD FORTUNE

IF YOU WEREN’T SOLD ON HIM ALREADY, OOOOOOOOOO BABY, OOOOOOOOOO YES THIS IS THE KICKER RIGHT HERE

GOD WHAT AN ADORABLE DORK

IT TURNS OUT HE WAS ACTUALLY SCARED THAT YOU WOULDN’T LIKE THE FACT THAT HE’S NOT JUST A GOTH 24/7. THAT HE’S ACTUALLY A THREE DIMENSIONAL PERSON

AND THE REASON WHY HE DOESN’T FEAR DEATH IS BECAUSE HE BELIEVES THAT IT GIVES LIFE MEANING, THAT YOU SHOULDN’T LET GRIEF CONTROL YOU FOREVER

HERE IS A WONDERFUL, GORGEOUS PARENT WITH UNIQUE INTERESTS AND HE IS JUST FULL OF SO MANY SWEET THOUGHTS AND IDEAS AAGHHGHGHGH

Damien has lost people dear to him. Yet he keeps moving. He keeps finding ways to make his life interesting and beautiful. He is good with animals and kids, everyone really (except the cashier at Hot Topic). He has not let life make him bitter. I love that about his character. I think his connection with the Player Dad is really special because people judge him so quickly and the Player Dad helps show him that he’s more than just an archetype and he can be his own person. The pressure to be only a small part of himself 100% of the time was making it hard for him to enjoy his hobbies, or to feel free. And I relate to that, I really do. We all have something people expect us to be. 

And don’t even get me started on the GRADUATION PARTY

DAMIEN’S SON THANKS YOU FOR MAKING HIS DAD HAPPY

AND DAMIEN SHOWS UP IN HIS IT GUY CLOTHES 

HE HAS FINALLY ACCEPTED HIMSELF AND GAINED CONFIDENCE AND IT FEELS AMAZING

And then there is this

I have nothing to say. 

I think I almost cried when i SAW THIS GIFT FROM THE GODS

MMMMMMMMMM YESSSSSSSSSS THIS IS THE PUREST CINNAMON ROLL, 70% SUGAR, 20% GOTH, 10% BAD JOKES

I FEEL LIKE I HAVE BEEN CLEANSED AFTER PLAYING HIS ROUTE 

AND THIS IS MY INADEQUATE ESTIMATION OF DAMIEN MOTHERTRUCKING BLOODMARCH, MAY HE REIGN AS THE BEAUTIFUL DORK KING OF DARKNESS FOREVER

The Many Faces of Yuuri Katsuki - Episode 4

In comes episode 4! This one has some of my favourite gifs in the entire show. This also marks the point which I got out of control and started making gifs out of every moment Yuuri appears on screen. As you can imagine, I had to cut down a lot. Hopefully you still enjoy the variety of the selection I ended up choosing! :)

Yuri on Ice 2017/02/11 all night event report

I’m back from the event and I’ll write a report before going to sleep, mostly because I’m sure I will not be able to decipher my scribbles when I wake up… It’s not the full talk show since you can’t record it and also I couldn’t possibly write down everything, but I tried to take note of most things, especially stuff that has never been mentioned elsewhere. In the end it became quite long so I guess I was able to get most of the stuff down…

Needless to say it’s my notes, so other people might write about parts I omitted, etc. To be honest quite a few of the things they said especially in the beginning, like what the seiyuu think about their characters, is something I’ve read so many times in interviews that I could almost answer in their place, lol… I was a bit disappointed that one of the questions that was answered is the one about Chris’ mysterious acquaintance, because actually Kubo answered that in Pash already (it’s in the Q&A part I’ll be translating later), and I hoped they would feature questions about stuff that hasn’t been explained yet. Well I guess not everybody reads interviews, but still…

Due to the format of the report you can find my comments here and there, mostly in brackets.
Under the cut because it’s long.

I forgot to mention something important: the ones participating in the talk show were Mitsurou Kubo, Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Yuuri), Junichi Suwabe (Victor), Kouki Uchiyama (Yurio).

PopCrave: “’Restricted mode’ does not show videos with anything LGBT+ related in its title and blocks out openly gay YouTubers…”

Thomas: “I sincerely hope this is fixed soon. So upsetting. The LGBTQ+ community should not be ‘restricted’.

As someone who strives very hard to make my videos accessible for all ages, it is so bizarre & unreal to be deemed a restricted channel.

It is all I and many other creators do to simply normalize the existence and inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community, and that’s now deemed inappropriate?”

I can only hope [YouTube] will amend this. In the meantime I’m gonna keep doing what I can do to provide a platform promoting representation.

[YouTube Creators] I strive to make my channel accessible for all ages, so I hope you will indeed look into this & why I am a restricted channel.”

Dodie Clark: “[YouTube Creators] you’re blocking everything with a hint of LGBTQ+! Vids of me swearing aren’t restricted but transwomen makeup tutorials are” 

so we all know that chenle entered sm just a few months before debuting (march?? and the chewing gum mv was filmed in june???) which is rly amazing…..but what we didn’t know (for sure) was that renjun was in practically the same situation. in the kbs arabic interview renjun said that he entered sm at “almost the same time” as chenle, which seems to confirm the fan theory that renjun got in through the audition in jan. ‘16

that means renjun was, at most, training for a month or two before chenle got there, so both of these babies debuted after only mere months of training (compared to years with the other mini rookies). and even though there was (and still is) a big learning curve for chenle, at least mini-celebrity chenle had prior experience in showbusiness and training related to that.

renjun had NO formal experience in the entertainment industry and a fraction of the training that the others had, so it seriously blows me away that his singing and dancing is practically on par with the korean members??? like really, renjun is killing his lines and the choreo and he does his best in front of the cameras and just…..not only does it show how incredibly talented he is, but it also shows how much hard work he’s put in.

i just really love my son huang renjun aka hwang injun and i cannot believe how wonderful and talented and amazing he is ok

NaNoWriMo for perfectionist writers

Warning: Long post ahead

So, we are facing our archenemy yet again, the NaNoWriMo. This is the month we are bound to feel despair, guilt, and disappointment, because, no matter how hard we work, our perfectionist mindset will never allow us to write 1,667 on a single day.  

But we deserve to enjoy NaNoWriMo, and we can. With this post, I’ll show you how.

First, let me explain something important. When people consider perfectionism, they often relate it to excellence or the striving for the best. The world sees a perfectionist as a successful person, or even as a genius. It’s quite the opposite. A person trapped in perfectionism doesn’t strive for the best. What a perfectionist really does is avoid failure. That’s all we do, 24/7, we avoid failure. We avoid failure by procrastinating, by researching, editing, rewriting, erasing, eating, biting our nails… but never writing. 

If you look around the internet for help, all you’ll gonna find is a few “stop editing as you write”, or “allow your first draft to be shit” or even "get over your perfectionist tendencies". Well, if only it could be that easy…

So, I’m writing this post from a point of view that understands perfectionism. My intention here is not to recycle all that is said and believed about a “solution”. My intention is to guide you through perfectionism, to help you understand what is going on inside your head and, maybe, to change the way you write.

Perfectionism is a personality trait, meaning that we were born this way. Just like being extroverted or introverted. Perfectionism, however, has a very strong tie to OCD. For those who aren’t aware, OCD is not a disease, it’s a personality disorder. There is no medication and no appropriate therapy. Doctors use depression treatment because people with OCD often develop depression. I know that because, for a long time, I was treating a non-existing depression and blaming myself for the lack of improvement. So, from the very beginning, this is what we have to understand. There isn’t a cure. There isn’t a treatment. No therapy or pill will magically change our personality. No “how-to-write” post or book will make us shift from a perfectionist to a prolific writer. 

We are different.

But why is perfectionism so harmful?

Because it ignites a train of thoughts that, in the long run, turns into beliefs. This train of thoughts goes like this: We set an unreachable goal > we fail >  we lose energy and motivation > we blame ourselves > we try again…

After years, you are left with an ingrained belief that you are a failure, that you simply can’t write, which leads to depression. And depression kills creativity. It seems like a mountain to overcome, feels like a mountain. But climbing a mountain is not our goal.

If you can spare a few minutes, please, watch this video:

The video basically says that we compare our journey to the successes of other people, but we don’t see the hard times they had in achieving said success. We don’t see the sketches of a masterpiece… we see the masterpiece, and we aim for the masterpiece, not the sketch.

The sketch. This is our goal now.

Our goal is to build layers of sketch instead of crafting a full novel at once. That’s basically how visual art comes to be. We build layers. And we keep adding layers until it’s done. 

Building layers can be easily translated to writing. You decide which layer you wanna add, how many, or which should go first. I tend to work with three:

- Layer 1: Actions

This is just like the script for a film, straight to point on what characters are doing. I write fast as if a movie is playing in my head. I don’t worry about transitions, descriptions or even dialogues. No emotions either. Things are just happening. 

- Layer 2: Dialogues

Then, I add dialogues where they belong. I try to make it long because, we humans, we talk a lot.

- Layer 3: Descriptions and transitions

This is the layer where a script becomes a book. I’ll describe places, characters, objects, and I’ll add transitions between actions. 

I often apply some extra layers like:

- Relation of feelings to actions: Where I describe emotions, feelings, and thoughts.  

- Immersion and Imagery: I try to explore the five senses in descriptions and I add little quirks to characters and dialogues.

- Symbolism: A few details here and there to connect parts of the book and to entice the reader.  

Here’s an example:

 I’ll write the three layers of a scene in which a family moves to a new house, but the older daughter Lennox is not impressed. 

Layer 1: Actions

They parked in the front yard. Father was the first to step out of the car. Then mother. Even Cecilia got out. Lennox took a deep breath. She looked up at the house father had just bought. And sighed. She opened her door and she stepped on the grass.

Father swang the new keys. Mother yanked them from his hand and rushed to the porch. 

Layer 2: Dialogues

They parked in the front yard. 

‘That’s it.’ Father turned off the engine. 'That’s the one.’

'It sure needs a coat of paint.’ Mother said.

'Well, yes…’

Father was the first to step out of the car. Then mother. Even Cecilia got out. Lennox took a deep breath. She looked up at the house father had just bought. And sighed. She opened her door and she stepped on the grass.

But we won’t pay rent anymore.Father swang the new keys, walking on his back across the yard. 'We are the landlords now, sugar.’

Mother yanked them from his hand and rushed to the porch.

'Right foot, everyone. Cecilia, Lennox, you too.’

Layer 3: Descriptions

They parked in the barren front yard.

'That’s it.’ Father turned off the engine. 'That’s the one.’

'It sure needs a coat of paint.’ Mother said.

'Well, yes…’

Father was the first to step out of the car. Then mother. Even Cecilia got out. Lennox took a deep breath. She looked up at the big house father had just bought. And sighed. It seemed abandoned for longer than a decade, forgotten on the furthest side of town behind bushes and trees. Walls had once been painted white. Windows had once glowed at night. But now the house was a ghost. A carcass.

Lennox opened her door and stepped on dry grass.

But we won’t pay rent anymore.Father swang the new keys, walking on his back across the yard and past the wire mesh that delimited the property. 'We are the landlords now, sugar.’

Mother yanked them from his hand and rushed to the porch.

'Right foot, everyone. Cecilia, Lennox, you too.’

I could add more layers, but I’ll stop before this post gets way too long.

For this NaNoWriMo, our goal is to write the first layer. 

We’ll write action after action without worrying about dialogues, description and immersion. You are laying down the facts and that’s it. You are not writing a book, or a novel, or a masterpiece in a month… that’s not your mission, that’s not your job. Your job is to write the first layer.

After NaNoWriMo, keep adding layers until it’s done.

When you are a perfectionist, when you have OCD, avoid overwhelming your brain. In anything you try to accomplish, divide your problem/work into layers, never into parts. Layers won’t pressure you to create a final product out of a white canvas, but parts will. 

I have faith in you. And I hope that, above all, you’ll have fun.    

Support Older Girl Groups Pt. 1: f(x)

This week on Support Older Girl Groups we are supporting f(x). If you want to know why you should participate even if this week isn’t about a group you stan, check out this post

So what this is is sort of a masterpost of ways to support the group of the week. And since it’s my favorite group and people have been taking about their status as a group a lot lately, I thought a logical place to start would be f(x).

This is far from everything f(x) has released, I just chose a few for each category so it would be easier to get the view up in a noticeable way. If you can’t put your effort into everything on this list, put your effort into 4 Walls, Free Somebody, All Mine, and On My Own. 

About the group

F(x) is an SM girl group that debuted in 2009. They were originally considered Asia’s Dance Group by SM.The members are Victoria, Amber, Luna and Krystal. Sulli also used to be part of the group. If you are looking for some different concepts, f(x) is definitely for you! They have done so many different concepts. I think you will notice their individuality as a group immediately!

Title tracks

4 Walls was their last music video and album to be released. It was released in 2015, so quite a while ago. It’s currently at 27,161,327 views, but deserves way more. Let’s get it to 30mil!

Red Light came out in 2014 and was their last music video and album with Sulli. It currently has 36,027,739 views, so it’s close to 40mil! it would be really awesome to get it to 50 mil sooner rather than later too. 

Rum Pum Pum Pum is pretty close to 50 mil, and it would be really great for them it! It currently has 46,309,778 views. 

Stations 

All Mine was the last music video f(x) has released. it was released in July of 2016 and currently has 8,411,608 views. Let’s get it to 10mil! This is a really special music video and song because it had been so long since f(x) had any activities together, and it has been a long time since, Also the music video was directed by Amber! I would be really great if this music video in particular had a big spike in views! 

Heartbeat is an amazing and sweet song by Amber and Luna. It’s honestly such a great song and Amber and Luna make such a could unit (they really should be a subunit.) But the music video is still yet to reach 1mil views! It’s currently at 901,491 views. That’s not that bad for a Station song but Heartbeat and the group deserve so much more. Let’s get it to 1mil and then much farther from there!

Borders is an Amber solo that she wrote and is very special to her. Honestly I cried to first time I heard it, it’s just too dang relatable lmao. Another thing that you might like is it is in English, and it has subtitles in both Korean and English. It currently has 5,221,617 views, which is actually pretty good for a Station song. But Amber has really been having hard times with her solo work an SM, so a spike in the views could really help. 

Solos

Free Somebody is Luna’s solo debut from May 2016. It’s such a great song that shows off both her beautiful voice and dance skills. Sadly it was not promoted well and got overshadowed by other SM comebacks, so it didn’t do nearly as well as it should. It currently has 8,154,679 views. Let’s get it to 10mil! 

On My Own was part of Amber’s Crossing series that she was making on her own Youtube Channel. Sadly, Crossing was never finished. We are not sure what happened to it, but based off of her cryptic Instagram posts (still the last two she posted if you want to go read them), it doesn’t sound like it was good. On My Own is a really important song to support for the same reason as Borders. It’s currenly at 1,040,418 views. Let’s get it to 2mil! and then maybe even 5mil!

I Don’t Want to Love You was not exactly a solo, but a collaboration between Krystal and June One Kim. It’s also not under SM and it’s not in Korean so it wasn’t that popular. But watching it will still help support f(x)! Also, it’s a really interesting and different song. The music video is actually a little spooky (also the intro kinda drags on) But still please support it becasue it’s a good song! It currently has 453,638 views. Let’s get it to 1mil!

Other Stuff to Check Out

Luna’s Alphabet is a vlog series on Youtube that Luna has been making, and it’s getting a season 3 soon! The videos usually range from around 5 to 15 mins long. And don’t worry, there are English subtitles!

Amber’s channel is where she posted her Crossing songs. There are only 4 videos but it wouldn’t hurt to subscribe anyway!

What The Pineapple was Amber’s Youtube channel for basiclly anything else she wanted to post. There are lots of funny things on it you should really check it out! Also it is primarily in English but there are Korean subtitles. Sadly it has been a long time since she last posted to it, but maybe if the views spike she will bring it back, or get to start something like Luna’s Alphabet.

Ending Notes

Please reblog this and share this as much as possible! This project will do no real good unless it is a group effort. And please watch the videos as much as possible! It would do the most good if you guys watched each one (or at least the title tracks) multiple times a day this week (and weeks to come.) I’m not expecting you to take the time to watch all of Luna’s Alphabet or What the Pineapple, but if you could watch all the music videos that would really help not only f(x), but all older girl groups! If you want people to put the effort to help out your favorite older girl groups, help out other people’s faves too! Remember, next week’s post could be your favorite group!

Also remember!

Listen to all of these songs on Spotify

Buy them and or the albums if you can

Look out for Victoria’s solo album coming out soon

follow them all on social media

among all this meta I’d like to bring up an inconsistency that always bothered me: how much did McGucket know about Ford and his connection to Bill? in the flashbacks in TLM, it seems that young Fiddleford did know about Ford and Bill, as we have this very telling shot:

but in Journal 3, it seems that Ford never admitted to Fiddleford that Bill was the source of all his ideas:

“I internally debated whether I should tell him about my Muse. F is a very superstitious man…Although I have always wanted to tell someone about my divine experiences, I worry that he might think I’ve gone mad all these years in seclusion, or worse–that I’m tangled in some kind of unsavory black magic. No matter…some secrets are best kept that way.”

Later, just before they test the portal, the topic is brought up again:

“Again, he questioned me about where I got the idea for this portal, and I considered telling him the truth…until he showed me something that shocked me.”

McGucket then offers the research paper for Ford to publish, Ford refuses, and the next day they test the portal. Fiddleford finds out about Bill the hard way and quits the project.

and so it seems that Ford never admitted the connection exactly, despite Fiddleford’s suspicions that something was up. if this is the case as written in journal 3, then how could the scene in TLM have happened?

I wonder this, too, because in that same episode it’s shown not only that Ford collected so many Bill-related artifacts, but that he kept them in the second level basement study:

which he presumably shared with Fiddleford while working on the portal—that’s what we see in the flashback, at least. it would make sense, then, that McGucket would’ve known all about Bill and Ford as we see in TLM.

but if we stick to what’s established in Journal 3, where Ford never admitted to McGucket his connection to Bill, then where do all those tapestries and prisms end up?

maybe the attic room wasn’t always used as storage.

anonymous asked:

What do you think everyone's favorite Disney movies are?

Hoo boi!! Let’s see…

Daichi: The Fox and the Hound. Like legit, you know that mother fucker watches this when he’s home sick. He curls up on the couch with tissues (totally for the cold and definitely not for all the tears he be sheddin’ by the end of the movie). He considered changing Pochi’s name to Copper when he first got him but then decided against it because Noya had promised to find him a new home and he didn’t want to get too attached. (Ha. Ha.) Then by the time he realized he was stuck with him, it was too late to change it. He regularly holds Pochi’s paws and says, “I’m a hound dooooogggg.” Suga has it on video and watches it when he’s feeling down.

Suga: If you ask Suga what his favorite Disney movie is, chances are he will tell you “Cool Runnings” or “Max Keeble’s Big Move” just to be a little shit and get you to say, “No… I mean like… you know. The animated ones. Uhm… like when you say Disney movie they’re the ones that pop up in your head…” “Ohh… you mean like the Lizzie McGuire Movie.” “Suga no.” But actually, his favorite is Frozen. Honestly, that “Let it Gosong was LIT and he never misses an opportunity to sing it. “Suga, did you eat the cupcake I told you not to-” “LET IT GOOOO LET IT GOOOOO.” “God damn it.” Or when Daichi is getting out of the shower… Suga kicks the door of the bathroom open, LOVE IS AN OPEN DOOOORRR! “SUGA GET OUT.” He absolutely loves it. He dressed up as a perfect male Elsa for Halloween. Any time someone disses on it, “It wasn’t THAT good…” a fist fight breaks out. Let people enjoy things, you fucks.

Oikawa: Lilo and Stitch. “It’s not because the aliens! Shut up, Iwa-chan!” It’s totally because it’s a heartfelt story about family sticking together and definitely not because there are space ships and aliens and lasers. Nope. Iwaizumi made him a Scrump doll for their fourth anniversary and Oikawa takes it with him whenever he travels and totally, no way, definitely does NOT sleep with it. Nope.

Iwaizumi: Oliver and Company. Despite having the voice of an angel, Iwaizumi has very few indulgent songs that he sings when he’s at home. “Why Should I Worryis one of the few that he actually does belt when he’s in the mood. Just imagine him sliding in his socks around the kitchen as he’s making dinner, singing into a wooden spoon… “Why should I worry? Why should I care? I may not have a dime, but I got street savoire faire.” It’s Oikawa’s little secret that he will never share with anyone. On Iwaizumi’s last birthday, Oikawa dressed up as Georgette and sang “Perfect Isn’t Easy”. Like… he just pranced around the bedroom singing, “Though many covet my bone and bowl, they’re barkin’ up the wrong tree. You pretty pups all over the city, I have your hearts and you have my pity. Pretty is nice, but still, it’s just pretty. Perfect, my dear, is me.” Iwaizumi laughed so hard that he started crying and it was definitely the best birthday he’s ever had.

Matsukawa: A Goofy Movie. And not just because of the memes. Because of the strong familial bond between Goofy and Max and how hard Goofy tries but just can’t seem to get it right. Matsukawa can see a bit of his own father in him, as they had their own troubles back when he was in high school. They got through it and have an even stronger relationship and he can see that in this movie. (but it’s mostly because of the memes.)

Hanamaki: The Princess and the Frog. He’s got that Friends on the Other Side,” song memorized and sings it while he’s…. well… “working”. Also, RayXEvangeline is his OTP and he will go to the grave preaching their love. He used to go catch frogs in the pond near his house when he was a kid so honestly he just has a total soft spot for the little critters. Oh and he thinks Prince Naveen is a total hottie. 10/10 would smash.

Bokuto: Aladdin! Oh man he could watch this movie every day for the rest of his life and never get tired of it!!! He’s even dressed up as the Genie for Halloween more than once! He’s got that “Friend Like Me” song DOWN. He can do all the voices and everything! In fact, one of the main reasons Akaashi fell in love with him way back in high school was because on the few occasions that it was Akaashi that lost some confidence, Bokuto would sing the song to him and change “Aladdin” to “Akaashi” and it never failed to cheer him up to hear, “Mister Akaashi, Sir, what will your pleasure be? Let me take your order, jot it down. You ain’t never had a friend like me!”

Akaashi: Monster’s Inc.! Oh man Akaashi loves this movie so much. One of the only times you can see him visibly get giddy is when this movie is playing. It’s honestly the most adorable thing Bokuto has ever seen and every time Akaashi imitates Boo and says, “Kitty!” in a cutesy voice, Bokuto legit ascends to a higher plane of existence. He definitely plays the jazzy OST in the background when he’s sewing, humming along with the melody. He also may or may not have pushed a small child down in his desperation to get into the theater for the very first showing of Monster’s University. (Also, don’t tell anyone, but he made himself a Sully pajama onesie and definitely wears it all the time, but knows Pain in the Ass Kuroo-san would never let him hear the end of it if he found out so he keeps it a secret even from Bokuto.)

Kuroo: The Emperor’s New Groove. Kuroo has most definitely dressed up as Kuzco for Halloween around the same times Bokuto has dressed up as Genie. (In both the llama and human form.) His ringtone was also “Perfect World” for the longest time, until Kenma changed it one night after getting tired of hearing Kuroo shout out “Me!” after the “This Perfect World begins and ends with-” part before answering his phone.

Kenma: Toy Story. Hey, the less actual human beings in a movie, the better, ammiright? As a kid who didn’t have a lot of real friends growing up, the concept that your toys came to life and loved playing with you as much as you played with them was a really beautiful concept to him. He had always been a really rational kid, and knew that it was fiction, but there was some part of him that always thought, “But what if?” After the first time he watched Toy Story, he started treating his toys more gently, and daydreamed that even his videogame consoles and all the characters within them were alive and got excited every single time he took the controller. Not to mention Sid’s Scare Scene gave him ungodly satisfaction to watch after he acquired a few bullies in primary school.

Asahi: Up! Because… Because… *sobs* they were so in love… and he was such a grumpy old man but then… *SOBS* BUT HE WAS HER ADVENTURE AND OMG DOUG AND THEN THEY WERE WATCHING THE CARS TOGETHER AT THE END AND… AND… *wailing*

Nishinoya: MULAN! Kick ass women and plenty of fight scenes and most importantly… “To be a man, we must be swift as the coursing river. With all the force of the great typhoon. With all the strength of a raging fire. As mysterious as the dark side of the moon!”

Kiyoko: Brave. Strong independent woman that don’t need no man and instead wants to ride her horse and shoot her bow and fight bears and learn to connect and understand her mother? Uhhh…. sign her the FUCK up. Also, King Fergus reminds her so much of her dad that she can’t help but giggle every time he shows up on screen. And that hair animation? ENCHANTING. She can’t tear her eyes from it.

Yachi: Tangled. Oh c’mon. Duh! Yachi is so TOTALLY Rapunzel. It’s not even funny. She relates HARD with the heroine and oh my GOD it’s so cute to see her flouncing around her apartment in her PJ’s, singing, “And at last I see the light! And it’s like the fog has lifted!”

Hinata: The Little Mermaid. REDHEAD. A REDHEAD! Oh man Hinata used to watch this movie every day. He was so excited to see a redheaded Disney princess. His mom bought him a fork just so he could brush his hair with it. He used to have a little fish tank in his room and he named all of the fish after the characters. “I’m going to marry Ariel when I get older!” Little did he know, he ended up being Ariel and falling for the tall, black haired prince with the bright blue eyes instead. Oopsie Daisies.

Kageyama: Finding Nemo. There’s something about small… orange… things that draws Kageyama to them. He really has no clue what the heck it is. He has been caught a few times muttering, “Just keep swimmin’. Just keep swimmin’.”  Under his breath when he’s stressed out, either on the volleyball court or in school. Pretty much everyone has noticed but they’re a little scared that he will stop doing it if they point it out so they pretend not to hear him. It’s just too cute of a habit to lose.

Miya: Hercules. Okay Miya is low key in love with Danny Devito and so anytime he’s in ANYTHING, it’s his favorite thing. Not to mention Meg reminds him high key of a certain tsundere who won’t say he is in love. Although, if he’s being completely honest, Miya relates a bit more to Hades than he does Hercules (I think you mean HUNKules).

Shirabu: Moana. So, Shirabu doesn’t really watch a lot of movies. Okay, he NEVER watches movies. He doesn’t have time. He’s got better things to do. The few movies he HAS seen were pretty much whatever Miyazaki Hayao was putting out and even then, he wasn’t really attached to any of them. Then Moana came out and he was quite literally DRAGGED off to see it by Miya. He swore he wasn’t going to have a good time and sit with arms crossed, complaining the whole movie, but then some ANNOYING asshole laced their fingers together and refused to let go and UGH. So obnoxious. But then that same annoying asshole seemed to have a lot of fun and hummed to the tune of Shiny on the way out of the theater and down the street. And well… it did have good music. And it looked pretty. And then when Miya took him to dinner afterwards, Shirabu had managed to choke out a reluctant, “Thank you” and had to suffer through an exuberant, “What can I say except you’re welcome?But you know… Shirabu wouldn’t be against the idea of seeing more movies in the future….


Welp. That’s what I came up with. Seem fitting? Thanks for the ask, I had a lot of fun thinking about this!

What's your opinion on the theory that Dipper is treated unfairly throughout GF? For example, Dipper sacrifices a lot for Mabel, while she only seems to sacrifice her sock-puppet show for him. There are also many suggestions in the show that some episodes overlap, like that from July 11-15, Sock Opera, Blendin's Game and Into the Bunker overlap. Which means D was under a LOT of pressure that week and he sacrificed a LOT for his sister. But she doesn't thank him for that. What are your thoughts?

See, maybe it’s the big sister in me, because I’ve never understood this particular complaint. The fact is, Dipper loves Mabel so much that her happiness is his own; his actions of sacrifice on her behalf are freely chosen. That’s why Bill’s behavior in “Sock Opera” is so insidious; he builds on Dipper’s momentary frustration with Mabel (why won’t she help me?!?!) by bringing up the various ways he’s helped her in the past, implying that she hasn’t done much to return the favor. He seeks to engender resentment where there was none, where Dipper was previously unwilling to give him so much as a stitch of Mabel’s puppet show; hey, she worked hard on those.

The key assertion I have to address here is that “Dipper sacrifices a lot for Mabel, while she only seems to sacrifice her sock-puppet show for him.” I imagine that viewers come to the conclusion that Dipper has the losing end because, when they compare Dipper’s problems to Mabel’s, they see Dipper’s as more serious. Dipper has a crush he can’t shake (relatable), Mabel is gaga over a pig she just saw at the fair (less relatable); Dipper is pursuing the latest lead in his search for the Author (important), Mabel is rigging up an elaborate puppet show to impress the Boy of the Week (unimportant). Yet the show is always keenly aware that Mabel’s problems, as trivial as they may seem to us, are as important to her as Dipper’s are to him. Bill highlights this when he says, “Who would sacrifice everything they’d worked for just for their dumb sibling?”, causing Mabel to respond, “Dipper would.” Dipper’s “everything” is his investigation of Gravity Falls and Mabel’s “everything” is her puppet show, but each of their projects is everything. Coming from Mabel, the sacrifice of the sock puppet show–and, by extension, of a shot at the “epic summer romance” she’s been seeking as ardently as Dipper has been seeking the answers to his questions–is a very real loss, one she’s willing to accept because Dipper would do and has done as much for her.

Nor is Mabel’s puppet show the only casualty of her greater love for her brother; the loss of her dream world is no mean thing. Mabeland might not be to everyone’s taste (I would personally have thinned out the crowd and lowered the 80s club music a notch), but it’s Mabel’s ideal universe; it’s a world where everything is as she wants it, where she’s never bored or lonely, where every boy loves her, where the high court judge is a kitten. With the threat of change weighing on her and the most important relationship of her life under siege, the prison bubble presents Mabel with an irresistible retreat. Bill, who has banked on human greed in the past to great success, believes that the trap is inescapable, that no one handed all their heart’s desires on a plate will be capable of leaving (just as Mabel is taken in by her desperation to stop time, Dipper wavers when presented with the possibility of growing up on the spot). But without Dipper, all of it is hollow; she prefers in the end to leave her safe place and to follow him into an uncertain world.

For much of the show, Dipper is the more responsible one within the context of their relationship. Regardless of actual birth order, Mabel is the baby; sometimes the baby gets in a habit of relying on charm to carry her through, taking it for granted that her older siblings will always step up to the plate on her behalf, because she’s just that cute (looking at you, youngest sibling in my own family). But if Mabel’s occasional thoughtlessness with regard to Dipper is a character flaw, it’s worth measuring against the depth of her concern for the world at large, a quality that Dipper himself, who tends to value his select group, could stand to learn from. Dipper’s only real issue with the destruction of Northwest Manor and all of its visitors is that Mabel happens to be among them; Mabel is the first to see the potential for redemption in Pacifica, even though Dipper is the one who becomes close to her.

But Mabel loves Dipper more than anyone, and she is grateful to him for everything he does for her and shows it. She apologizes to him at the end of “Sock Opera” for letting a transient enthusiasm skew her priorities: “I spent all week obsessing over a dumb guy. But the dumb guy I should have cared about was you.” After escaping the prison bubble, she makes it clear to him that he can stay with Ford if he wants to–her noblest moment in the series, because Dipper is her entire world, infinitely more to her than crushes and pet pigs and magical trees that grow stuffed animals. He stays with her, not out of guilty obligation, but because he wants to be with her–because she’s his best friend, because growing up without her would be unthinkable. He’s a fair-minded guy, not one to take the fall without good reason–when he operates against her in “The Time-Traveler’s Pig,” he does so on the assumption that her pig is an enthusiasm of the moment and that his love for Wendy is permanent. When he realizes that losing Waddles will truly hurt her, he doesn’t hesitate. “I could never break your heart, Mabel.”

But look at how she thanks him. She knows this wasn’t easy for him and she’s ready to show him how much it means to her. She tackles him in sheer strength of feeling. She lifts him right off his feet.

Treated unfairly? Dipper gets back everything he gives away with interest. Dipper’s happiness is his sister’s happiness and he always gets it because he is her happiness. Dipper is a lucky kid.

anyway putting everything aside haruka nanase is the most beautiful and talented boy in the world and I’m so incredibly proud of him!!!!! 
free! started with haru spending his days sitting in his bathtube thinking about becoming ordinary! and look at him now! he’s come so far and he’s working so hard and I can’t wait to see him achieve his dream and show the world just how extraordinary he is!!!!!!

Okay so since I’ve learned that this month is about pride I wanted to do something in relation to it. I know how hard it can be to show your true color toward how you feel, homosexuality have always been a controversial subject for many, some more open to it then other’s and I wanted to say that label doesn’t really matter, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, asexual, we are all the same at the end. We want to love the person that we want without being judged for it. We want to be proud to love our other half and be able to show it.

I never expected to love a girl myself, especially as an asexual, and yet it happened that the person I feel romantically toward is a girl that I love really much. And I’m proud to love her because she’s someone fantastic.

You don’t have to be ashamed of who you are, show your color and be proud~<3
