Ed Weekend Analysis Challenge

eene-fangirl said to book-o-scams:

Either 1. Do an analysis on Ed’s dream in Rock a Bye Ed Or if you don’t want to do an analysis just answer this question. 2. What does Ed’s dream in Rock a Bye Ed entail about his home life? *Read the post on my page of you have any questions

‘Rock-a-Bye Ed’ is probably my favorite Ed episode and it is credited to Big Jim Miller:

I’ll try and be brief because my “a” and “w” keys are sticking and I want to hold out hope that I will do a shot by shot analysis in the future.  I will probably fail to be brief and fail to fulfill the full analysis. :p

Had a dream that McDonald’s had a big ad campaign that just said “WE HAVE IT” in black cryptic writing. So I went to a drive thru and said “I saw the sign. Can I have it” and the speaker was silent for a solid ten seconds before saying “do you think you’re ready” in my voice and I screamed and drove away

I had a vivid dream that Bart canonically got a boyfriend on The Simpsons and it was a big deal all over social media… but the thing was that in the show Bart’s boyfriend was a kid in a full-body opossum fursuit and not even Bart knew his real identity. Finally at the end of the season it turned out to be Milhouse, who dramatically unzipped the suit and said “Bart… I’m your opossum boyfriend”

And then they just kept dating but Milhouse STILL kept the opossum fursuit on

I’ve never even watched The Simpsons

“There’s a somebody I’m longing to see…”

I was trying to teach my (irl) cockatiel Keith to talk, and she was just not doing it. I said to her, in a big, fake, babytalk voice ‘How are you?’ and then answered myself ‘Happy! I’m happy!’ so she would get the idea, and she replied, in a flat monotone 'How embarrassing.’

Dear Blexa,

You wake up every morning to find yourself alone again. When was the last time you had any real sleep? You are tired half of the time. Coffee is no longer a maybe. Hell, even your tears are caffeinated. Darling, I don’t know how you’re able to function… Once upon a time, you said that my heart was too big. So I give and give. I’m starting to notice something. You are just like me. You give until it hurts. You are more trial than error. Why? Because if it works, it works. If it doesn’t? There’s no need to dwell on it. That’s your philosophy. It’s also your personality. You’re the afterglow of the Northern Lights. You’re the parts of a dream that we always remember to jot down. You’re the warm and fuzzy feeling of a blanket once it’s out of the dryer– it always feels brand new. You won’t sleep tonight. You’ll try, but you won’t. You don’t even sleep on your bed anymore– it’s always the couch. Sleep is an act and you can only hope that those five cups of coffee has finally left the stage. Some nights, you sing alone. Some nights you pray, are they ever answered? Most nights… you are alone. Just you. Your busy phone, but it’s never him– and if it is him, it’s not him. You’re awake again. 1AM. 2AM. 3AM. 4AM. Is there a difference at this point? You know… sometimes you fall for people– but occasionally… they fall for you. And even then… you still need your coffee. To keep up with them. To keep up with yourself… you need to be awake. Maybe that’s why you can’t sleep… you’re so happy that they exist… you forget that you do too. Do me a favor. Sleep. Get some rest tonight. Not for me. Not for him. Not because of anything really… you just need to cool off. How can you be there for everyone if you’re only sleeping 2 hours a day?

p.s.– you are important too!!

I had a weird dream… While I was walking amid the darkness in that dream, I saw a light. And I saw my dead brother… My big brother, Keicho. He asked me where I was going, so I said that I was going to follow him. I mean, my Bro was always reliable. He never made any bad decisions, so I’d have nothing to worry about. But then he said I should decide for myself. He said, “Okuyasu, you’re the one who has to decide where you’re going to go.”

What happens when you fail your first year at Uni?

The short answer: Nothing really. The long answer: A whole lot happens. Its like mourning the death of something you love. Entering university you get this idea that you are going to pursue something that you are so passionate about. And how can you really fail at something you are passionate about? Something that you love, and something that you spend 3 years of high school fighting to get, and something that had always been your dream. 

Now entering medical school I really thought that this was going to be easy, I know that is ridiculous to think, however, as said, something that I loved so much seemed to me as being something really easy to overcome. However it wasn’t. 

I could already from the start sense that this was not going to be as I had imagined. It was a lot more difficult. And it really was a big, big difference from high school. And so failing, was not an enjoyable thing that happened to me. Especially when everyone around you passed. 

So ofcourse the feeling of disappointment started to occur, the feeling of being dumb came alive and the thought that maybe I was not cut out for university started to be a daily question. Yet, I did what I could. I started studying again, this time aware of the mistakes that I did before. Mistakes like, not really focusing correctly, and just being in love with the thought of being in university. Mistakes like skipping chapters because “whatever I will come back to it” - which never happened. 

Now was there any benefit to failing then? Yes, there were many! Here are a few of them: 

  1. Learning more. I know it sounds like such a cliche “I failed, but now I know so much more” but you truly do. Getting to read the material once again, however focusing on your weakness and using your strength to build that up is actually really helpful and it makes you understand the topics so much more. 
  2. You discover your ideal study methods. I did study ALOT before the exam which I failed, however I believe that being new to university I still had not uncovered my ideal study method. Yes I did do well in high school with the study methods that I used, however studying at university and high school is not the same. And that is a very challenging fact to face, but going through the whole process of figuring out how you learn the best way possible is a very long process however it will sculp you and prepare you for the rest of your time at university. 
  3. Prepare yourself for everything. Failing from the beginning already gives you the idea that everything is possible. As someone who had straight A’s like the common medical student, you often find yourself thinking that failure is not possible. So when it becomes a reality, it helps you get prepared for most of the struggles that you will face for the rest of your life. Failure is a very natural part of being a human, and this actually helps you get that. 
  4. Discipline. Last but not least you learn how to set up a schedule and be more focused. It might be the push you needed. It was for me. 

Now last but not least, dont beat yourself down over failure. You will get past it, and you will come out stronger than ever. 

Belive in yourself, and never give up, 

Love, 

Dunia 

“It’s hard to believe that, in 2017, we still have to fight so hard for basic equitable support,“ said assistant captain Monique Lamoureux-Morando. "But when I think about the women who paved the way for our team – and when I see girls at rinks around the country who are dedicated to pursuing big dreams and look to us to lead by example – it’s well overdue for us to speak up about unfair treatment, even if it means sacrificing an opportunity to represent our country. We owe the next generation more than that. We owe it to ourselves to stand up for what is right.” - U.S. Women’s Hockey Team Will Not Play in World Championships, ESPNW

You lads remember that BBC Sherlock header that said BE A PART OF MAKING HISTORY?

I just wanna say these following things are abso not original or even potentially historical possibilities of what that could even be referencing.  Not in television/movies as A Thing, nor in the world of Sherlock Holmes:

-secret sibling/evil sibling (Heroes, Lost, Six Feet Under, FUCK i mean Star Wars, the list goes on and on these are just easy ones off the top of my head?)

-Ret-con because It’s All Just A Dream (I keep saying Doogie Howser M.D. because that trope is weak af as far as originality goes)  The big History Maker isn’t going to be some Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or Requiem for a Dream or Vanilla Sky shyte because it’s been done in countless ways.

-Protagonist ends up in with A Girl (i literally do not even need to give examples because just close your eyes and pick a netflix movie and there u go.)  Sherlock Holmes has ended up with Irene Adler or some other lady half a dozen times in half a dozen interpretations. Not Historical.

-Sherlock Holmes ends up Alone/Still platonically cohabitating with John Watson (both of these…have already happened…on the show?)

Main character(s) die? Not historical.  We’re Being Told a Story? Not historical.

I’m not saying some of these can’t be COMPONENTS of the arc, but NONE of these can even remotely back up the BE A PART OF MAKING HISTORY claim AT ALL.  

The only thing that could support such a bold assertion, is that Sherlock Holmes is finally celebrated as a canonically gay character and is in love and romantically in a relationship with the one man that has ALWAYS loved Sherlock throughout the decades.  That WOULD be a historical moment in television history AND is something that has not happened in a largely circulated Sherlock Holmes adaptation.  

My kid, who is 3 years old, woke up from a nap one day and asked me where I put the train. 

“What train are you talking about?”

“The big one, it was over there”, she said and pointed to the wardrobe. 

It suddenly all clicked to me and I realized she had a dream about it. 

She said the train was like her other train but bigger. I told her, “darling, you were dreaming”.

“Yeah I know…But where’s the train?”

“It’s only you,” whispered Orphan Girl. She was holding his hand crouched down next to him. “Why do you hate you?”
Ronan thought about it.
The albino night horror swept in, talons opening.
Ronan stood up, stretching out his arm like he would to Chainsaw.
“I don’t,” he said.
And he woke up.

I’m reading The Raven Cycle this summer and falling in love with it. This was my favorite scene in The Dream Thieves. Like. an actual thrill shot through my heart when I read it.

I had told my mom that I had paid off her mortgage. That was something when I first started working and I was making money, I was speaking with a business manager and they said, ‘you should invest your money. What do you want to do with it?’ And I said, first thing is I want to pay off my mom’s mortgage. They said it was going to be a long time before I could afford to do that, but that’s what we worked towards. Every couple of months I’d check in, 'do we have enough yet?’ And then eventually he was like, you can afford to pay your mom’s mortgage. We did all the paperwork and stuff and it was a big secret to be sitting on for so long. But yeah, it was definitely one of the best moments of my life. It’s like, what any kid dreams of being able to do for your parent and I feel very lucky that I actually had the opportunity to do that.

Of every scenario I imagined for the upcoming episode, Emma and Regina being trapped. in another dimension. completely alone. fighting side by side. and with no Hookypoo… is by far the best.

An Eddie Redmayne one-shot for @xoxcathylove requested here.


“Can I just reiterate how excited I am, Eddie? I mean like, yeah, you’re in it and all and I’m proud and love you and whatever, but it’s- it’s Harry Potter and Hogwarts and J.K freaking Rowling. On the big screen again. It’s a dream come true. And- and you’re taking me to the first screening of it. I get to be one of the first to see it. Eddie, that’s so cool.”

When Nick meets the Family - by Weibo user jixiaoyoucnm

This is just hilarious, I hope the translation is correct!! It also speaks well to me because my Chinese surname is “马”, which literally means horse 😂

Panel 1
*Judy’s sibilings are fantasizing over Nick*

“Big Sister has a Boyfriend. Even though he’s a different species, he’s surprisingly well spoken”

“His manners are well defined, like someone with a good upbringing”

“He knows so many influential people”

“He left home to pursue his dreams but failed… resorting to sleeping under a bridge for a couple of days…”

“Could he actually be….”

“A DOWN-ON-HIS-LUCK PRINCE WITH A HORSE???”

Panel 2
*Later in the day…*

Nick: “No No No, I didn’t say that, I never said that!!!”

Judy: “PFFFT!!”

nanas and the raven cycle

fun fact: my seventy-six year old grandmother with a literature degree has read the raven boys.

fun fact: one time when i was reading her a chapter, she decided it would be a good idea to translate some latin that came after Ronan said “You know what they say about men with big bags,”

fun fact: it translated to “show me yours and i’ll show you mine,”

fun fact: @maggie-stiefvater she thinks you have a brilliant writing style.
