some part of tumblr is like “ belle fell in love with a beast. “ it’s not realistic and i’m sitting here like and cinderella rode in a pumpkin, had a fairy god mother, talked to rats, snow white practically died because of a poisoned apple, sleeping beauty pricked her finger with a spinning wheel… rapunzel has magical glowing hair, ariel was best friends with a fish and gave up her tail to go find love. jasmine had a pet tiger and rode on a magic carpet…
do you know what that’s called? it’s called fiction and you know how you enjoy it? by having an imagination.
listen i am not trying to stir up anything here but that seriously looks like an obi-wan/satine pinup on that one crate by zeb. of course i am in no way the star wars pinup poster expert but ???????????? @bedlamsbard
Do you remember Keith’s conflicting time concept when he was telling Eren & others the story of how he met Grisha?
He was not sure when he met with Grisha how many years ago so he said an approximation. Thanks to Zeke, we got more accurate numbers now.
So here is a rough Jaeger timeline.
806 - Grisha Jaeger is born.
809 - Fay Jaeger is born.
817 - Fay is RIP.
824 - Grisha joins Restorationists and meets Dina Fritz.
825 - Zeke is born.
830? 832 - Warrior - Shifter Program begins. Grisha implicates Zeke as a Warrior.
832 - Zeke snitches his parents to Marley. Therefore Dina Fritz and The Restorationists being turned to mindless titans and Grisha Jaeger gains the power of Attacking Titan, aka Shingeki no Kyojin, from the Owl, Eren Kruger.
833? - Grisha Jaeger finds a cure to the plague and saves the city. Carla and Grisha gets married.
835 - Eren is born.
842 - Zeke inherits the power of Beast Titan.
845 - Grisha visits Reiss family and stoles the power of Founding Titan from them. He probably has a few months or less until the end of his term. He passes this power to his son, Eren Jaeger. Fall of Shiganshina Arc takes event.
850 - Trost Arc, Female Titan Arc, Clash of Titans Arc, Uprising Arc and Return to Shiganshina Arc takes event. Also first Jaeger meeting happens. Mid- East Union declares war on Marley Empire.
854 - The four year long war between Mid - East Union and Marley Empire comes to an end with Marley’s victory. With Zeke’s suggestion, Marley decides to focus on invading Paradis Island once again.
rules: use the same sim for both sides, try to do the same type of hairstyles and make up styles on both sides, if u know what I mean (please refrain from using clarified hair, as it’s a mixture of both alpha and mm), try to make everything different, not just hair; things like skin overlay, make up, eyebrows, and eyes (clothing doesn’t really need to be changed, unless you’re doing a full body thing), and tag #alphavsmm
Disclaimer: *obviously*, I root for Cormoran and Robin in the end. But I love how it’s a thread in the book, yet not the focus. I love the mysteries Rowling chose for each book - how there’s a point made by the theme of the crime in each story; how she made sure to give the old detective genre a really contemporary feel; how she’s giving Cormoran other relationships (intimate, friendly, individual), instead of marching directly towards these two as endgame with no alternatives in sight. How there are side characters that are given time to emerge and have fascinating backstories. *On that note, I’d love a few friendships and relationships for Robin, too, but I guess there’s a point Rowling is making with showing how much of her life is revolving around Matt and Matt’s friends. Cannot WAIT for the time that Robin’s going to explore life without Matt. *throwing flowers to the altar, pleading to literary goddesses that this happens in Lethal White, and not, say, book 6*
This is why I’m a bit sad that they made the opening credits only about Cormoran and Robin, depicting it almost solely a romance, when the book series is about so much more. Loss, trust, power or lack of it, layers in a society, overcoming obstacles, solitude, growing up in different situations, families with all their faults, even the bloody London housing crisis.
Ok, fine, I don’t appreciate the opening credits style-wise, either, because I don’t think it does justice to the pretty awesome cinematography of the series, but mostly it’s how they are going all-in for the romance, so directly.
Still cannot fully believe we’re getting a series, so damn thrilled by it. And ep 3 in a WEEK.
So I had a dream last night and be dream I don’t mean a hazy-almost-asleep-kind-of-purposeful-wild-romp-of-imagination.
I mean serious, full-on, Logic-what-logic and why-is-that-rabbit-pink? kind of dream. One of those, Oh-my-god-I-have-to-remember-that-it-was-so-cool! kind of dream.
So… let me set the dream up.
Somehow, Obi-Wan (who was female by the way), Ahsoka and Captain Rex had ended up on earth, in New York. (I’ve been watching a LOT of Elementary lately so I’m blaming the setting on that.) Anyway, Ahsoka and Obi-Wan were discussing how they were going to get back to their galaxy given that they didn’t know how they ended up here on “earth”.
Ahsoka: Where ARE we?
F!Obi-Wan: I haven’t the faintest idea. I don’t even know how we got here.
Captain Rex: General Skywalker isn’t going to like this.
Ahsoka: Don’t you mean Darth Vader?
It is at this point that I feel I should tell you that Ahsoka was actually Fulcrum and yet Obi-Wan and Rex were from the Clone Wars. And nobody seemed to care about this.
Anyway, back to the unfolding drama of my psyche…
F!Obi-Wan: I don’t believe that’s Anakin.
Ahsoka: Ooooohoho! It’s Anakin all right. I know. And he’s going to be furious.
Captain Rex: *is doing clone trooper type things. I don’t know. Maybe he’s checking the perimeter*
F! Obi-Wan: *snaps* I’m sorry, all right?! Will that make you feel better? It’s my fault we got into this mess and now we’re millions of lightyears away from our home and I don’t know how to get us back there! And Anakin is furious and going to come after us!
Again, I must point out that this was a dream and it seems logic had flown out the window.
Ahsoka: Obi-Wan… we’ll figure some way out of this. Just… let me go see what I can find out.
What next followed was apparently a walk through some kind of marble courthouse with very loud floors that echoed and a lot of boring, normal people going about their daily activities. Obi-Wan followed Ahsoka, Rex followed Obi-Wan and no one noticed a giant orange and blue woman with horns and head tails coming out of her head and the guy in blue and white armor with the giant gun.
Apparently Ahsoka couldn’t find anything out and was going to contact Anakin, because now he wasn’t Darth Vader anymore. (I KNOW RIGHT??! What the hell brain? We were doing so well!)
Which left Obi-Wan and Rex alone together in the room.
F! Obi-Wan: I’m sorry, Rex. I know this can’t be easy for you. Being separated from your home.
Obi-Wan is doing a lot of apologizing. I wonder what she did before the dream started. I wonder if I can download that from Brain! Amazon.
Rex: *takes his helmet off* It’s all right, sir. At least you’re here. That’s all that matters.
F! Obi-Wan: Rex…
AND THEN THEY STARTED TO KISS.
AND IN MY DREAM, I, FIREFLYFISH, DISTINCTLY SAID “BUT I DON’T SHIP THIS.”
And Obi-Wan and Rex continued to make out, while Ahsoka was off doing reconnaissance or something. Whatever you have that third character do while the other two are K-I-S-S-I-N-G.
So whilst I, FireflyFish, watched Lady Obi-Wan and Rex share a tender embrace, I heard another voice (still me but in that way that you talk to yourself? Is what I’m saying making any sense?)
“WELL YOU SHIP THEM NOW! MUAHAHAHA!” IN MY DREAM! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I TROLLED MY OWN DREAM.
So thanks brain. Thanks for giving me the weirdest and most specific of pairings. Fem! Obi-Wan and Rex.
Dean stumbles over the rubble of the castle, tripping as his ankle twists over the uneven terrain. He kicks his feet out as he walks, debris flying forwards with each stride, the sound of rock clacking against rock snapping in his still ringing ears. He looks down the mountain of shambles he’s trying to descend, other students hovering around the base, trying to salvage whatever bodies they can fish out from beneath the remains of the school walls.
He had climbed his way to the top to get a view of the courtyard, the battle’s ruthlessness leaving massive stretches of the school walls open and broken. The remains of the crumbled walls created a perfect point to survey the school grounds, only taking a few minutes of unsteady footholds to get to the top. He had spent his time there with a hand above his eyes to shade against the glaring sun, finally rising after the hell of battle. It brought with it the welcome feeling of respite, the dregs of students made fighters finally able to breathe a justified and earned sigh of relief. He had scanned over the span of the horizon, watching straggling wixes going about to clean up the mess, sometimes entire pieces of broken stone rising up and back into place, slowly but surely bringing the structure of Hogwarts back to its pristineness.
Even as high up as he had been, Dean has no luck in his search, the familiar mess of sandy hair nowhere to be seen among the wreckage.
