i think i'm the only the person in the whole world that ship these two!

anonymous asked:

Hi, what exactly is Stargate (like, what is the plot, how many seasons, that kind of thing)? I've seen it mentioned in combination with Leverage in some of your posts, and I've sort of picked up some of the character names from being on the internet, but I'm still not sure what it actually is. Thanks!!

What a delightful question that I’m going to have a ridiculous amount of fun answering, probably using too many gifs.

First, the bare bones facts: Stargate is a franchise that began with the 1994 movie Stargate, which was then developed into the TV show Stargate: SG-1 which began in 1997 and picked up about a year after the movie ended. SG-1 had 10 seasons and 2 made-for-TV movies. There are also 2 spinoffs, Stargate: Atlantis and Stargate: Universe. Atlantis has 5 seasons, and its first season coincides with season 8 of SG-1, with both beginning in 2004, with some fun but not strictly essential crossover between the two. Universe has 2 seasons and began in 2009, after both SG-1 and Atlantis had ended. I mostly blog about SG-1, but I enjoy all three shows and will at least briefly explain Atlantis and Universe in the course of this post, FOR FUNSIES.

The basic premise of the whole thing is that there are these devices (built by aliens, OF COURSE) called Stargates, which create wormholes that allow for basically instantaneous travel between planets all throughout the Milky Way (and other galaxies as well, it turns out, but that’s later).

The movie involves the US Air Force, with the help of the BEST FICTIONAL ARCHAEOLOGIST IN EXISTENCE FIGHT ME, figuring out how to work the Stargate, using it to travel to another planet, and helping the locals overthrow the evil parasitic alien who was posing as the Egyptian god Ra in order to enslave them.

SG-1 starts with Earth humans learning that “Ra” actually belonged to an entire race of evil parasitic aliens who used the personas of various gods to enslave humans throughout the galaxy. At which point, NATURALLY, the plucky Earth humans say “fuck that shit” and also “ooh, a whole galaxy to explore, HOLD MY BEER” and start having adventures and liberating the galaxy.

Atlantis is about Earth humans finally discovering the lost city of Atlantis over in another galaxy, and the adventures and struggles they have setting up a colony there. Also, space vampires.

Universe is about a bunch of Earth humans accidentally stranding themselves aboard an alien-built spaceship that is going they don’t know where in order to find the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. It’s much darker and more sort of psychological than the other two shows. Also more diverse. I like it a lot, but for different reasons than I like SG-1 and Atlantis.

SG-1 owns my heart, because it’s the show that helped me fall in love with sci-fi. Also, it has Dr. Daniel Jackson. It wrestles with what it means to be human and ethics and all kinds of really good shit. It’s not perfect, and the early seasons especially have some pretty major issues with sexism and white savior complexes in certain episodes, but overall I personally find it more than worth it, and the main reason is the characters, who you now get to hear me yell about my love for.

So I'm introducing my friend to wrestling and she's a fandom girl that has shipped things before in other fandoms and such so I introduced her to Seth and Dean in FCW and she fell in love with the idea of ambrollins but I want to open her eyes to ambreigns as well (since I ship both) so I'm wondering if you can recommend some matches/moments to show her to make her a lover of ambreigns


I am Ambrollins trash but my love for Ambreigns is on a complete different level. I can link you to sooo many moments from their on-screen time together as well as their RL bond and I am sure your friend won’t be able to resist the power of Ambreigns cuz they are the purest ship I have ever witnessed 😍

Now onto the moments, I made this Gif Fic consisting of my most favorite Ambreigns moments ever. Its a mega post so beware!  

The tale of the greatest love story of WWE aka AMBREIGNS

                                               SPECIAL MENTIONS

Kayfabe Moments

Post Match interview in which Dean just couldn’t keep his mouth shut and we had one of the most hilarious Ambreigns moment take place

That time when The New Day outed Ambreigns & Big E spanked Dean’s ass in the ring while Roman had to watch and his expressions were priceless. Later on Big E tweeted about how Roman wanted to be the one spanking Dean’s ass. Roman also apparently liked the tweet which showcased Roman’s expressions while his baby boy was getting his booty slapped lol. One of my all time favorite moment! Ambreigns fandom had a field day

When a ‘botch’ move was literally Dean falling into Roman’s arms. Right after the very next day of The New Day exposing Ambreigns lmao

When Roman literally carried Dean Post Match

When Roman accidentally speared Dean during a match and Dean acted like such a drama queen over it like ‘MY BEST FRIEND SPEARED ME, I THINK I BROKE MY RIB, DO I LOOK LIKE A TARGET TO YOU’ and then proceeded onto make Roman touch and check if he was actually hurt. Like Dean was such a prissy diva in Shield days lmao

In which Ambreigns had a dom/sub moment on live TV

When Dean was being a problem child on RAW and Roman was indulging him like a good supportive (boy)friend

This HILARIOUS Ambreigns moment where Roman is being his usual papa bear while Seth is showing us why he failed to conquer the Ambooty rights

Even when they are against each other, their love doesn’t crumble Part 1

Even when they are against each other, their love doesn’t crumble Part 2

Roman picking Dean up vs Dean picking Roman up. The struggle was real for poor Dean lol

Roman being Dean’s Savior

Roman taking care of Dean

Roman being defensive of Dean

Royal Rumble Progression of Ambreigns

Roman and his affection for his puppy boy

Shield Days when Dean would come up close and personal in Roman’s personal bubble while acting like a prissy diva cuz he was all up in his feels thanks to Roman’s beauty which was exhausting poor Dean

Roman having his usual ‘I don’t know why I love him, but this is my baby boy even though he’s a fucking child’ moment while Dean is being…well, Dean

When Dean won the best supporting actor for the best Bromance aka Triple ships it :P

When Dean tries to copy his Daddy but only ends up looking like an angry puppy lmao

When Brock murdered brat baby aka Dean Ambrose and Roman spent the whole RAW worrying bout Deano and checking up on him. Later on he was ambushed by Hunter on the same night to join his fallen boyfriend

Actual Best Friends 

This super adorable moment where Dean intimates Roman and show us all how he is the biggest Roman fan out there 

Wizard World Portland Q&A with Roman Reigns in which he mentioned Dean more than a guy would mention his wife. He had someone ask him if Rock was his cousin and his answer? Yes, but I like Dean better. Lol

When Roman won his title and celebrated with his family aka the Usos and his baby boy

Quotes from Dean and Roman bout each other and their friendship

I like to look at all BTS ship videos on YT.. I just love seeing cute moments between all the members :). I know the likelihood of any of the ships being real in a romantic way is slim to none because shipping is for fun after all (something I enjoy doing). And I get that everyone sees what they want to see, which is fine. I admit that there are moments in each ship that sometimes make me wonder. However I CANNOT for the life of me see what V/kook shippers are looking at when they say that V/kook are the realest romantic ship…. I just don’t look at a V/kook moment and think “wow there is definitely something going on there”. I always see them and think “aww that’s such a cute moment, I love how close they are (I wish I had friends like that)”. I love all  BTS ships and how close everyone is. But even if I see a questionable moment or two, I mainly see everyone as a close family who love each other and it’s adorable. I just happen to think that there could be something much more romantic going on between Jikook. My opinion (with valid situations to back it up). But if you really ship V/kook like that then that’s great, to each their own. That being said, today I stumbled across a V/Kook vs Jikook video and OMG…

THE COMMENTS SECTION IS AN ABSOLUTE MESS. 🙈 and it’s only been up for 2 days. After going through the MANY V/kook comments I just have to get this off my chest.. 

The logic is just NOT THERE lol. I get defending your ship with what you think is really happening, but make sure you back up what your saying. Show the evidence you claim to have without dragging Jikook down. It just bothers me when shippers feel the need to discredit other ships, as a way of proving theirs is real. I understand there are terrible Jikook shippers out there that are just as bad as some V/Kook shippers, and I know that it’s not just them cause I’ve seen Yoon/min and other shippers get pretty bad. But I’m just finding more and more negative comments about Jikook because “V/kook is more real and jikook shippers are blind”. I had to say something lol. These are just some of the comments that had me shaking my head.. 

-V/Kook always share clothes and JK doesn’t like to share clothes, yet he shares them with V. I don’t see him doing that with JM”

The replies to this comments went off, and there were SO many V/kook shippers saying they never saw them share clothes. HOW. WHAT ARE THEY LIVING UNDER. I’m just going to leave this here.. because I just… can’t. lol.

Not saying JK doesn’t share with TH, but Maknae line definitely at least share with each other. 

-  “Omg GUYS IF JIKOOK WERE REAL, Jimin and JK would spend more time together. But we know TH and JK are always playing games and etc together.. They even went on a trip together..”

OKAY… I know I’m not the only one face palming here lol. First off, the only way you would know if Jikook spent more time together is if they show it or say it. & If I was in a REAL relationship that I was trying to keep private, I would not spend more time together in front of the world to see. I mean, COMMON SENSE people. Also from my experience, spending time together playing video games and bonding is something friends do with eachother. How can people forget that underneath all of these ships BTS are real life friends and brothers that do spend time together on their off time. They live together. Even if any of the ships were real they aren’t going to avoid the other members and not hang out with them because of that. Secondly, You know that V/kook spends time together and plays games because that is what they chose to share with you. You know they hang out because people have spotted them hanging out together. That’s great. But Jikook have also been spotted hanging out before, as well as stated moments of them spending time together off camera (e.i JK practically being Ji/hope’s honorary roommate, and them *cough* staying up till 4am to do laundry together *cough*). They are also GLUED to the hip at airports and in the background of many of their videos, assuming you mean off camera -.-. So just because your ship spends time together doesn’t mean that others don’t. (& also by that logic V/min would be the realest ship since even the members say they are the closest, have taken trips together and spend A LOT of time together).

“JM said that he loves JK as a brother and JK said that he loved his hyung (JM) as a brother.” “JK once said that JM is his brother and TH is his friend. I can not imagine a romantic relationship between brothers, but between two friends…” “JM TREATS JK LIKE HIS YOUNGER BROTHER HE SAID IT HIMSELF”. 

Another face palm. Like really. Again with the logic going out the window lol. They all call each other brothers because they are close like a family. I am pretty damn sure JK has called TH a brother at some point and vice versa, but go ahead and use that example of him calling him a friend instead. To me, that just means that JK considers himself closest to JM if he considers him a brother, because that is stronger than calling someone a friend. AND If any of the members were actively trying to hide their relationships or keep things private why in their right minds would they openly say anything to make people suspect something. Really. (& again by that logic V/min would be the realest ship here since they have openly called each other Soulmates and more.. Just sayin)

Plus in my opinion, there is nothing brotherly about this stare ..  Actions speak louder than words my friend.

Obviously if you are only paying attention to your ship, you’re not going to see the moments we see. Even then, we don’t know exactly what happens behind closed doors and off camera. We can only go by part of what we see and some of what the members say (Because fan service is still a thing). And even though the boys share a lot of their idol lives with us, we don’t really know what their personal life is like, only what they feel like sharing. At the end of the day shipping is just for fun because we don’t really know what is going on. We should all be supporting BTS as a whole, because without Bangtan the ships wouldn’t exist. So fighting between ships and constantly dragging other ships and members down because of your ships shouldn’t even be a thing. You can easily like your ship and respect the others. If you don’t think you see something romantic between Jikook that’s fine, because I don’t see anything romantic in v/kook. It’s all a matter of opinion. But don’t tell me that I am delusional for seeing something in my ship or use the “their brothers, it would be weird. it’s one sided” excuse to drag my ship down. We should all just enjoy our respective ships peacefully :). And with that I’m going to end this long rant with a comment I saw that really just fits with this post lmao. Because Ship wars are tiring & after re-reading this I realized that there is a Vmin situation for everything haha. 

- “It would be funny if in the end of all these fights between Jikook and V/kook the real one was actually Vmin…”

Courtesy of going to see the official DSOD sub in the theatre today! It’s a dub-created plothole.

So first, if you’ve only seen the DSOD dub, you need to know that like … the dub was reasonably good as an adaptation, but literally half the plotline was erased. In the JP version the Plana exist via something called collective consciousness, where the memories of other people are checked against your own to create reality. It’s some pretty heavy philosophy: basically, without other people, you don’t exist. (It’s functionally what happened to Atem canonically, as well.)

Basically, reality as told by the Plana is like an internet torrent. If the people around you don’t notice things–the buildings, your existence, what the breeze feels like–then you don’t have enough data to compile a world, and it falls apart. So, for example, when Jyonouchi is sent to the other dimension, it begins to fall apart as he finds the gaps in his own memory, not predetermined at Diva’s will. For instance, he can’t remember how long the street is, and the world starts to go white before he goes “oh yeah, it leads to the shopping district” and goes there–only to find that without Sanpei’s memories, their routine of him getting splashed with Sanpei’s bucket falls apart, because Sanpei isn’t there to datacheck the water.

Everybody seems to be vulnerable to this except Kaiba, and even the Plana are surprised by this. Now here’s the thing: HOW DOES KAIBA FIGHT IT OFF?

Well, we see him talk about his databases and the Crystal Cloud, and the Japanese dialogue says if you’re a duelist you have to register your deck to maintain residency in Domino. He literally has the entire world datachecking for him on a regular basis. Where Diva’s datachecking is magical, Kaiba’s is technological–but they’re evenly matched.

So now we go back to the armbands.

Kaiba misremembers them. Maybe he intuits them from his subconscious past memories; maybe he extrapolates them from the whole “he was a pharaoh” thing. At any rate, Kaiba’s memories are fucked. He even tells us as much: the rant in EN about his scars and how Atem humiliated him? Not there in JP. In fact it’s the exact opposite–he’s praising Atem to the high heavens for his dueling and his personality, and if you think about it a little harder you realize he’s feeding information to the system that powers the new Solid Vision to create the AI. He’s actively datachecking the AI against his own memories, and when he realizes he’s reached the limits of his own imagination–that the real Atem would have an out for the situation he’s created, but that he can’t imagine it–he’s hurt and disappointed and screams for Atem to “vanish.” If he can remember Atem’s deck in error, surely he can remember something as inconsequential as an armband in error.

So now you have Jyonouchi in the other dimension. He’s dying. Any moment he’s going to vanish–and then Atem appears, with the armbands. Did the animators fuck up? Was he supposed to have those same bands as pharaoh, to tie his two images together, and someone forgot them?

The answer is no to both.

At the precise moment that Jyonouchi is dying, Kaiba is in Yuugi’s shop picking up the Millennium Puzzle.

Jyonouchi needs a memory that exists in a different dimension. Not the one he just left, but a different one altogether. A memory that touches him. Someone connected to him, but not existing in the real world, because that world is now demonstrably false.

There’s one man who exists under those conditions, and at the precise moment that Jyonouchi needs that man, there’s one other man who’s datachecking him.

The armbands are there because it’s Kaiba’s mostly-complete, but slightly faulty, datacheck that allows Atem to exist in that moment. Jyonouchi is seeing the real Atem, but the real Atem as seen by someone else. The armbands exist because Kaiba remembers them existing, just as Atem is shown as Yami no Yuugi because Kaiba remembers him as Yami no Yuugi.


Kaiba indirectly saves Jyonouchi. With his mind. And his obsessive-compulsive databases.

Okay, shippers, you’re welcome. *salutes*

anonymous asked:

Can you write anything Rylex (Ryland and Alex) I'm living for that ship now. Maybe something like they got caught being couplely by the team ?? Or something idc as long as it's cute and rylex

Here’s a little something on how they met. I hope you like it!! It’s not too long, but i think it’s sweet.

warnings: alcohol mentions


Ryland wasn’t the type to go to bars.

He much preferred staying at home, minding his own business and playing his video games. People were more of a nuisance than anything else, and if he could avoid contact with them, that was much more preferable. 

For as long as he could remember, he liked doing things on his own. He didn’t have to deal with others’ problems, he didn’t have to try and impress anyone, and he certainly didn’t have to get involved in anyone’s business but his own. Friends seemed exhausting; at least, his own family was, so friends couldn’t be much different.

Besides that, Ryland had learned at a young age that people were cruel. It wasn’t worth putting yourself out there for a person that would only use you and then dump you off when they were done with you. It wasn’t worth the emotional pain and eventual hurt. Things were much simpler if he kept everyone at a distance.

That was why he moved out as soon as he was able and worked from home. He rarely left his apartment and enjoyed his solitude. Sometimes his nosy landlord would try to poke his nose in, especially if the rent was late, but Ryland got along just fine without meeting his neighbors or even attending the BBQ his family was holding for Thanksgiving. Most of the time, he even forgot to send a card.

So it completely defied all his logic to be sitting there at that bar. The only reason was he’d had a rough day and, as he’d been out of beer after only drinking two, he was just tipsy enough to wander to the bar right around the corner and glance blearily around at the crowd.

Most of the guys there were preoccupied with the game playing on TV, which was fine with him. Less people to interact with.

A particularly loud guffaw caught his attention, and he turned to see a lanky man with curly hair leaning forward so earnestly he looked like he’d fall. He was far more drunk than Ryland, and seemed ready to pass out at any given time.

For no reason in particular, Ryland decided to watch him. The man kept making nonsensical complaints about the football game, all while ordering another beer. The bartender seemed to know the guy, as he seemed friendly.

Then the man turned and made eye contact with Ryland. Ryland quickly looked away, not wanting to have interaction, but to his horror the man haltingly stumbled off his barstool and started to make his way over to Ryland’s seat.

He stopped, swaying slightly as he assessed Ryland. “Nev’ seen you aroun’ here before,” he slurred, slinking into the empty chair beside Ryland.

“Yeah, don’t come here much,” Ryland muttered, avoiding eye contact. 

The guy didn’t seem to notice Ryland’s hostility, or if he did, he didn’t seem to care. “I’m Alex,” he burped, offering a sweaty hand. “That guy calls me a ‘regular.’” Alex grinned, as though that were some sort of accomplishment.

Hesitantly, Ryland shook his hand, wondering how to escape. “It’s, uh, good to meet you.”

“How come you don’t come here?” Alex asked, leaning against the bar for support. “You’re so niiiice.”

Ryland laughed, unexpectedly, at that remark. “Nah, it’s pretty much the opposite. No one likes me.”

“What?” Alex seemed genuinely surprised, but Ryland decided that was just because he was drunk. “I believe you’re a suuuuper good person. But,” Alex wagged his finger, “you still haven’t told me your name.”

Against his better judgement, Ryland obliged. “I’m Ryland.”

“Ryland!” Alex threw his arms out, gleeful. “That’s such a nice name!”

Ryland couldn’t help the grin that poked out. “Is everything ‘nice’ to you?”

Alex contemplated that, and the word cute flashed across Ryland’s mind. “No,” Alex ultimately decided. “Not everything. Just you.”

Wasn’t that ironic? Ryland thought. I’m the opposite of nice.

Just then, Alex pitched forward, and Ryland sprang up to catch him. “Whoa! Dude, are you okay?”

Alex hiccuped, looking up at Ryland, and to his horror Alex was crying. “She left me, Ryland. You understand, don’t you?”

Ryland carefully placed Alex back on his seat. “Calm down there, buddy. Do you need some water?”

“No,” Alex wailed. “I just need a friend in this whole goddamn world!”

With this dramatic statement, he thunked his head on the bar. The bartender didn’t even flinch, and Ryland gathered this was a nightly occurrence.

Ryland hesitated. This was usually the part where he’d quickly make his exit while the weirdo was crying, but he couldn’t bring himself to do it. There was something about this particular weirdo that made his heart soft.

“Hey, man,” Ryland said, patting his shoulder. “Do you want to come with me? You can crash on my couch until you feel better.”

Alex lifted his sticky face, staring at Ryland, and he was preparing himself for the “what the hell?” but instead Alex just sobbed again, throwing his arms around Ryland’s torso.

“I kneeew you were a good person, Ry. I love you…”

Ryland ignored the sniffly, gross sounds and picked Alex up, sliding some cash at the bartender for their drinks. He had no idea if it was enough, but the bartender accepted it without comment, so Ryland half-dragged Alex out towards his apartment.

This was no easy task, and Ryland felt exhausted by the time they arrived. He plopped Alex down onto the couch, wondering what the hell he was supposed to do with a guest.

“Um…would you like some water?” he asked tentatively, and after a sniffly nod, he went off and got a towel so Alex could wipe his snotty face and a glass of water.

After cleaning himself, Alex snuggled into Ryland’s side, making him freeze. “You’re the nicest person I’ve met in a long time,” Alex murmured, burrowing his face in closer. “And you smell good.”

Ryland smiled, softly. It was the first time in a long time he’d felt affection towards someone, and to be honest it both excited and scared the shit out of him.


“Ryland’s a good person,” Alex said, swiveling his head to look at Sam. “I know he doesn’t act like it, but he really does care about people.”

“Really?” Sam asked, skeptical. “He seems like such a grump.”

“Yeah, well,” Alex said fondly, thinking back to when they first met, “he tries to act tough and solid, but really, he’s got the kindest heart of anyone I’ve ever known.”

corsaircourser  asked:

You're going to get a billion of these, I bet, but James Flint! You write him with such a careful hand but every shade of his character is just perfect, so I'm curious what you keep in mind when getting him down on paper!

OH BOY thank you so much! i don’t even know if i’m doing this meme right. i knew this was coming and @reluming also asked for this and now i feel unbelievable pressure hahaha. i hope i’m doing my boy right :|

James Flint:

– He had a very mild religious upbringing. They celebrated holidays just to appease the neighbors, rarely went to church, and he had only read parts of the Bible, mostly in later life. Flint is self-aware enough that, given his history and his personality, this is probably for the best. The last thing he needs is Eternal Judgement.

– As a boy, he’d been helping his grandfather load his fishing boat when a Navy vessel had stopped at the Padstow docks for an emergency resupply. An officer had approached Flint, all of 13, to ask for directions, and had walked away, likely thinking Flint a simpleton with the way he’d answered (or more specifically, hadn’t). He couldn’t help it. The man had large, bright brown eyes and a straight, important nose, and stubble coating a sharp jaw and prominent Adam’s apple. His perfect Navy hat had sat atop long blond hair, tied neatly back even after days at sea. His broad shoulders had only been emphasized by his starched blue uniform, the brass buttons shining all the way down his chest, and he’d walked down the dock with a proud sailor swagger that kept Flint watching even as he disappeared into the town. Flint’s newfound teenage lust had mixed with his understandable ignorance, and so, as he’d continued to think of the officer days later, he had found himself overcome with the fierce desire to join His Majesty’s Royal Navy.

– The first time he’d killed a man, he’d only lit a fuse on a cannon, sending one ball after another rocking into an enemy ship. All he’d felt at the time was fear for his own life. The first kill that he’d ever felt guilty over was Gates. The first kill he’d ever felt real pleasure over was Thomas’s father. Every other death and injury had been just another means to an end, that rarely, if ever, gave him pause.

– A part of him is always waiting to die. It’s a part of him that wants to. But an equally greater part of himself wants to outlive the whole damn world, to be the last one left alive in this fucking ungrateful place. He wants to live a long and miserable life just because civilization itself doesn’t deem him worthy of it. Society sees him as a creature, undeserving to breath air, to taste food, to walk upright on his own two feet. To them, he will and should be put down by his own evilness, by his own deeds, and he wants nothing more to prove to them that one can live because of these deeds. One can thrive. He knows one of these impulses will win out in the end, but he honestly has no idea which one.

– The first time he’d seen Silver – properly saw him, stood before him in daylight – the thought had flittered through his mind that his mouth would look great around his cock. The thought had flashed through his mind like lightning, so quickly he wasn’t even sure it had happened, and mostly he was about to forget about it. As long as he could drown out the roll of thunder he heard in his heart and his stomach and lower still, whenever he looked at Silver’s lips.

– He sometimes idly thinks how much better his life would be if he could love women the way he loved men. Not because he felt shame any longer in who he was, but because every woman he knew was so much better than every man. Better than himself. Granted, he knew more men than women, but on average, men were violent, hateful, stupid people, responsible for all the suffering he had ever endured. Miranda, Eleanor, Madi – all had carried themselves with unwavering strength and intelligence, had elevated themselves in some fashion by will alone, and had maintained as much rationality as possible. He envied them, and he had loved them easily. While the love he felt for Thomas, for Silver, was hard, in every sense of the word, and Flint is a hard man, for all of his immeasurable softness.

anonymous asked:

I'm really getting sick of animentality's anti ereri posts. They're the reason I'm afraid of looking up the tag for my favorite ship. Yes, eremin has undoubtedly more canon evidence than ereri, and I understand the frustration of having a ship that's obviously more meaningful than the more popular one, but to cross tag and rub it in the faces of shippers who don't outright lash at other ships involving Levi and Eren....? I honestly feel like shit rn.

I’m sorry, Anon. I know it’s hard to keep from lashing right back at them for hating on a ship that’s not particularly hurting them, but the only thing we can do is stay silent. It makes me sad and frustrated when even Ereri/Riren shippers do the same to others by saying things like, “Ereri is more canon than yours” or “The only ship that’s canon is Ereri” and I want to tell them, no I’m sorry, it’s not. Every ship in Attack on Titan has a possibility, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be canon. Everyone has the right to ship whoever they want because they can. And as much as I hate to say it, everyone is entitled to their own opinion as well. If people could understand that you don’t have to send hate and force your opinion on someone else, maybe everyone in the snk fandom would get along, but that’s just wishful thinking. We just have to suck it up and be responsible adults. Getting angry at others would only make things worse for the Ereri and Riren fanbase.

Don’t worry, I know exactly how you feel, Anon. There were times when I just wanted to blow up and tell them that if Eren and Levi were to ever get together, that they would not be an abusive relationship, but rather a relationship dependent on constant physical contact. Contrary to popular belief, Levi and Eren would be perfectly compatible with one another. They have been through the same exact past and present. The only thing that separates them is that Eren has experienced all this at such a young age and Levi sees that. He understands. If anything, Levi is like a father/mentor of sorts to Eren. We all know it won’t be canon, but is that going to stop us from reading between the lines and wanting to warp reality into a fantasy? No.

Just stay strong, Anon. It’ll only get harder from here. Especially once the second season comes out and the Ereri/Riren haters make a comeback after being in subtle hiding for so long. I mean, we’re already witnessing it unfold. Like you said, people are sending more hate into the tags than they have been in quite a while and it’s making each and every one of us feel like shit. It’s unfair. Their ship has the same possibility of becoming a reality just like ours (except Ymir and Christa,  they’re canon) and that hurts. To know that your ship will most likely never happen, hurts, it hurts a lot. But we’re lucky enough to change that perception. We’re fortunate enough to piece and ship characters together in loving relationships, and that’s a very beautiful thing to have. And because of that, what is even remotely beautiful or innocent to one person or a group of people, is instantly ugly and disgusting to someone else. And that’s the harsh truth. The only problem is, is that no one wants to accept what has clearly been put into their hands.

There will always be people who won’t respect a person’s ship because something about it either offends or terrifies them in someway to the point that they want to tell the world about it. And I can understand that, but telling others to kill themselves and to feel like shit for shipping two characters together? That needs to fucking stop. Now, I know there are other haters who are decent enough to keep quiet about their opinion for private conversations, and that’s awesome. Keep it up. Go rant to a friend or family member about it, just don’t threaten or attack someone individually or as a whole simply because you want to rub your “canon” ship in someone else’s face because it makes your ship feel “superior” over another. What really frustrates me and gets me going is why do people keep sending so much hate to others if they, themselves, don’t particularly like getting hate either? I don’t know. It frustrates me.

Anyways, as someone who ships literally anything and everything, there are some ships that I don’t particularly like in the snk fandom, but that doesn’t mean that I like to shove my opinion down their throats. To be honest, even if I don’t like it, I still low-key ship them because I can understand why others do. I just won’t go read and write fanfictions about them. But once I see fanart or cosplay, I’m like “I don’t ship it, but that’s some awesome fanart/cosplay”.

I’m sorry for going on a rant :’) I always get carried away with this kind of stuff, but just know that I’m here if you ever wanna talk about it, okay?

I hope you have an amazing day, Anon 😊

What are your recs for klance Fanfics. As many as you can throw out. I'm getting desperate fam

mmmm okay here we go!!!! my personal fanfic recommendations <3 

“Firsts are best because they are beginnings.” Or, Keith is the new Gryffindor seeker and Lance is in denial (but what else is new). SFW ・ one-shot

“You give off the obnoxious popular vibe. The mullet, and the rap sheet, and—the fingerless gloves,” Lance replies, and barrels on before Keith can take it the wrong way. “I’m so handsome, my name’s Keith and I’m a pilot.”
“That sounds more like a compliment than an insult,” Keith says slowly, a disdainful quirk to his eyebrows that only spurs Lance on. He tilts his head a bit, his bangs shadowing his face, like he’s assessing a particularly impossible physics problem. “And I don’t like that voice you’re using.” SFW ・ one-shot

Lance is the star athlete of his college swim team, and the best diver they’ve had in decades. He’s a watercolor artist who’s brilliant use of palettes and textures has given him regional recognition, often displaying his work in multiple student galleries. He’ll never admit it, but he loves art museums and talking about technique and styles of art. He’s an active member of his fraternity and holds his role as Vice President very highly. He gets good grades and works hard to be recognized - he even tutors English Literature to other students on Saturdays.

He didn’t know he’d be talking about conspiracy theories with an unknown number on a Tuesday night, until his phone went off at three in the morning. SFW ・ 4/?

“I am trying to figure out these VSEPR exercises,” Keith sighs. Loudly. “You know, like—”
“Like valence-shell electron-pair repulsion theory?” Lance finishes for him. 
Keith stares.
Lance bats his eyelashes and chews on his bubblegum, blowing a large bubble and snapping it right in front of Keith’s face. “What?” he says. “Like it’s hard.”
(or, the fic in which antisocial loner Keith seeks chemistry tutoring from resident airhead cheerleader Lance. Who, actually, isn’t that much of an airhead as it turns out.) SFW ・ 1/3

So being the delightful boyfriend he was, Lance offered to stay in Keith’s apartment while he was gone. Besides, it was comforting being surrounded by Keith’s belongings. If felt like he was still with him. Lance had been in the middle of his own Christmas cheer, subtle decorating to music and working on something special for Keith when his phone rang.
“There’s just too much snow, baby. We couldn’t even see the roads; we had to stop.”
That was not what Lance wanted to hear. SFW ・ one-shot

For Lance, humans were a mystery. He’d lived beneath the surface of the ocean with his shoal his entire life, and had intended to remain there. He knew the danger humans posed to his kind, and what would happen if he came close to one. That’s why, when he found one drowning, his first instinct was to save him.
He’d never been good at following the rules anyway. Not Rated ・ 26/?

Music is the language of the soul. Keith wholly believes in that philosophy. He’s always been able to hear more than just words in lyrics, more than just chords in music, and this new band speaks so loudly, with so much heart, that he’s swept away by their songs, and, more importantly, by their very attractive frontman. SFW ・ 4/? (discontinued :( still a fave though)

Lance and his friends have been regulars at the Altea Dance Studio for years. Not just for classes, but to hang out, practice, and spend time with good people who love dancing. Every year, they audition to be one of the few representing Altea at the regional dance competition. Lance always auditions solo, but this year he misses out on auditions and blows his chance to participate. 
And so does his self-proclaimed rival, Keith.
Luckily, Shiro comes up with a brilliant plan: convince Lance and Keith to audition as a duo.
With a little convincing, and a lot of effort, these two might just be able to pull it off and go to regionals… or they might crash and burn. SFW/mild mature scene ・ 11/16

After the Conclave blew up in everyone’s face, the whole world went to shit. Lance didn’t know what to make of it, but there was no way he would join the Inquisition to become their tool. Sure, he could close the rifts now, by some miracle - accident in his humble opinion - and he was doing his best to close them on his own. Trouble was, they were getting worse as time went on. After being tossed by a shade, he was seriously reconsidering doing this by himself. Needless to say, he got lucky that a cute Seeker came to his rescue after getting caught in a dragon’s nest; the only problem was that cute Seeker was trying his damnedest to recruit him into the Inquisition. Mature ・ 5/?

Shiro has been a Galra prisoner for over a year; with his flight feathers clipped and unable to fly. Desperate to escape, he jumps overboard while being transported to the capitol on a Galran ship. Lance is a merman who saves him from drowning. Keith thinks Shiro is about to become mermaid dinner. Hunk just wants Lance to stop going to the surface all the time, dammit!

top 6 non-canon ships and top 6 female characters? also, I'm curious, why do you resent The Proposal? :)


Hahaha, I mostly just resent The Proposal because I think it’s a PERFECT premise, TAILOR MADE FOR ME, with the added bonus of being set in my home state where I have always wanted to see a romcom set, but a lot of the ways the portray Alaska really just didn’t work for me. Why is it so clearly somewhere in the east coast where rich people hang out? Why isn’t anybody wearing Xtratufs? Why are they making a joke of Alaska Native culture and, if I recall correctly, showing literally no Alaska Native people? And wtf is up with Oscar Nunez’s character? I cannot be asked to stomach that. wHY DID THEY DO THAT TO OSCAR NUNEZ????


Anyway: A++++ @ Sandy and Ryan’s delightful chemistry, NO THANKS to everything else. I hope for a better Alaska-set romcom one day.

Top 6 Non-Canon Ships (for this, I decided to go with stuff that is genuinely not canon, as opposed to stuff that was briefly or on some level intended canon before my dreams were dashed, a la Mindy/Jody, Betty/Kate, etc. Sidenote: sobbing for always.)

  1. Rory/Paris (Gilmore Girls) - WIVES IN MY HEART. Equals. Soulmates. Keeping each other on their toes! Driving each other nuts but also being overachieving nerdy kindred spirits! Having the most perfect slow burn relationship development in seasons 1-4, to the point where if they had slipped into shippy town circa season five, it would have honestly felt perfectly natural. I love Rory/Paris with all my soul, and I am so glad that a lot of other people do too.
  2. DeWitt/Dominic (Dollhouse) - Never have I known such exultation at two people technically just standing next to each other in a work setting. The perfect loyalty + tragic betrayal storyline! The intense repression! The stylish outfits! The greatest fandom in the god damned world, in the last glorious years of the livejournal era! It was my heart’s truest and purest fandom experience. I will always be incomplete as a person because they never angrily made out on Adelle’s desk. (But at least Dominic held her at unnecessarily sexy gunpoint on Adelle’s couch.)
  3. Grace/Frankie (Grace and Frankie) - I mean, like, I don’t know, I DON’T KNOW, could season three’s life decisions really have been unwitting????? Was flying off embracing in a rainbow balloon that Grace literally stole from the guy trying to take her out on a date and regifted to Frankie while a song about having bittersweet feelings about your love played in the background something that happened in a platonic way? Only time will tell??? Anyway: season three of Grace and Frankie is literally the most exquisite portrayal of gradually realizing you are inconveniently in love with your best friend who has also been your lifelong nemesis that I have ever seen, and I am very, very glad that there is a fandom that is extremely enthusiastic about this solemn truth. I am kind of scared for season four to come along next year and crush all my dreams. (But what if it DOESN’T?)
  4. Oscar/Andy (The Office) - A very wonderful fun time was had by all (or … by an enthusiastic few?) with this pairing back in ye olde The Office days, after season 5 episode 7 entitled “Business Trip” came along and blew all our minds as we realized that Oscar’s and Andy’s perfect soulmates had been EACH OTHER ALL ALONG. My heart to this day gets super overwhelmed any time they have a brief exchange in an episode, or are perhaps sitting next to each other in a conference room meeting. This show did more good than it did bad overall in my opinion, but perhaps the worst thing it ever did was not realize that Oscar and Andy needed to fall in love and live happily ever after. At least they both ended the series single, and are in my heart of hearts husbands by 2017, no question. Like, maybe they get roped into doing some sort of publicity event for the documentary – maybe Oscar writes his own version of The Audacity of Hope, or Andy writes his own version of Scrappy Little Nobody, and either way they wind up on a book tour! Maybe they make the bonkers decision to collaborate on a memoir about the documentary to boost their careers and then we can imagine the joyous process of Oscar Martinez and Andy Bernard collaborating on a written work! Imagine that Google doc. Imagine how frustrated Oscar would be with all Andy’s font choices. – and at some point they find themselves having another unexpected drunken hotel adventure, and this is the one that ends in the inevitable start of their romantic relationship. And lord, just think of the whole Dunder Mifflin crew coming back together because OSCAR? and ANDY? are GETTING MARRIED?!?!?!? It would frankly be worth making a, like, four episode mini-revival of The Office for. And if Greg Daniels is interested in this idea, he can totes email me any time. p.s. I think we all know that Andy would love the life of being a local politician’s husband.
  5. Remus/Sirius (Harry Potter) - I will always remember so vividly how I felt when I had the Remus/Sirius epiphany as a middle school aged youngin’ (thanks internet!), and the iNTENSE EPIC TRAGEDY OF THEIR LOVE STORY OVERWHELMED ME. Remember that essay on livejournal that intricately broke down every single bit of Remus and Sirius’s interaction to prove that they were in love and Harry just didn’t realize it? That stuff was my god damned Da Vinci Code! (Er, or something. I don’t really remember what actually happens in the Da Vinci Code.) Oh my God, how ardently I shipped it; how weary I was when Sirius died and then Remus/Tonks happened. I somehow didn’t quite grasp that bisexuality existed yet, so I was very disheartened. Now, though?? You can pry my belief that Remus/Sirius was straight up canon from my COLD DEAD HANDS.
  6. Buffy/Faith (BtVS) - Another early pairing in my shipping life that got me to really broaden my shippy horizons beyond mere heterosexuality. Their chemistry was SO INTENSE, and I just had so much fun analyzing the anguish and electricity of their dynamic. I have no idea what happened in the Buffy comics, so I’m just going to envision a post-series Buffy world where they eventually get together and have some peace.
  7. Bonus mention: Christopher Hayden/Jason Stiles (Gilmore Girls) - The happily ever after that I really wish Amy Sherman Palladino could have somehow magically let me throw into the revival. DIGSTOPHER FOR LIFE. They are married in my own personal understanding of Gilmore Girls as a universe. Emily is flabbergasted.
  8. One more bonus mention - Gwen/Morgana (Merlin) - THIS SHOW DID NOT DESERVE THEM OR THEIR LOVE, GOD DAMN IT.

Top 6 Female Characters (without quite as much rambling because this post has become a giant monster)

  1. Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables) - Anne Shirley was, I’m pretty sure, my first hero. I just loved everything and imitated everything about her when I was young, as a little wildly imaginative and romantic weirdo myself. I went back to the series as a young adult and found even more value in it, and have I mentioned how thrilled I am that we have a new incarnation of this girl in Anne with an E???
  2. Jane Eyre (Jane Eyre) - I didn’t really get into Jane Eyre until college, but once I did, it ate my whole life. I just love how fiercely Jane values herself and won’t compromise her principles even though she’s not objectively an extraordinary person and even though she still wrestles with a lot of self doubt and insecurity. I think that is truly a radical message for women even now.
  3. Belle (Beauty and the Beast) - This movie was my childhood everything, and I spent more time pretending to be Belle as a little kid than probably anyone else. MY HERO, for always. I still think “I want adventure in the great wide somewhere / I want it more than I can tell / and for once it might be grand / to have someone understand / I want so much more than they’ve got planned” might be the most poignant words ever (melodically) uttered onscreen.
  4. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) - The true love and most beloved heroine of all my teen years. This has totally become a theme in this post, but having a nerdy bookish unpretty girl right at the center of the action and so essential to Harry’s life was just awesome to me. (And shipping Ron/Hermione was basically the center of my soul as a youth, haha.) I miss her, and really need to do a series reread soon, gosh darnit!
  5. Rory Gilmore (Gilmore Girls) - My most beloved kiddo; the teenage girl character who super cared about her schoolwork and looked forward to staying home alone and doing laundry. Rory was a quiet old soul and that meant a lot to me when I was younger as a quiet old soul when clearly that just was not a cool thing to be. As I get older I also feel super, super protective of her and all the criticism she gets, so I will always be willing to die on a hill for Rory Leigh Gilmore, by golly. One thing I’ve really come to realize that I value about her as I get older is how hard she is on herself and how much she struggles with wanting to be perfect in everything. I don’t think that’s portrayed super commonly in stories in the way that it is in GG, and it is so achingly relatable to me. YOU’RE GOOD ENOUGH JUST THE WAY YOU ARE, RORY.
  6. Xena (XWP) - I actually prefer Gabrielle a little more in terms of favorite characters from the series itself (because of course I do, she’s a nerdy plucky aspiring writer!), but I just think Xena is such an important character for us to have as a … species? Her role in her own narrative is one that had usually just been reserved for male characters–like, having wielded terrible destructive power and yearning to atone for that somehow is such a traditionally male character type (Angel much?)–and it really moves me to see a woman character wrestle with that. She was fully realized in an unusual way, particularly at the time when the show aired but sorta even now.

I see you reblog a lot of Bungou Stray Dogs stuff. Would you recommend it, could you maybe give a brief explanation of what it's about? It looks interesting, and once my semester's over I'm planning on bingeing a few new shows, so I need to build up a list!

I ABSOLUTELY recommend Bungou Stray Dogs! In general, I don’t reblog anything I *wouldn’t* recommend, but for sure, I think everyone should watch Bungou Stray Dogs.

It’s a little hard to explain though, because I feel like the summary doesn’t accurately convey just how amazing this show is. And I have only watched the anime and read the first volume of the manga, so I feel like there’s actually a whole lot more to the story that I’m only beginning to understand and I might not be the best person to ask for why this show is great. But I can talk at least in general about some of the things that I really liked about the series, and I hope that helps!

First off, I guess the basic summary is that it’s about rival organizations consisting of people who all have superpowers. But I also strongly feel like that summary only conveys a fraction of what is going on in the story, although for the life of me I can’t really summarize it any better than that.

Essentially, this show combines the two great loves of my life: literature and anime. The basic conceit is that every main character has the name of a famous literary author and their supernatural ability is named after one of that author’s major works. I knew that going in and I was very delighted by that fact but it was essentially lost on me until they started introducing the Guild who were all named after American/British/Canadian authors and then my literature-loving heart was ECSTATIC.

I mean, I think there’s just something supremely satisfying about watching a show and thinking, “OF COURSE Nathaniel Hawthorne is a priest! Of course he is! And of course his ability, The Scarlet Letter, would have creepy blood related powers.” And then there are moments when you go, “people ship H P Lovecraft and John Steinbeck?” and think to yourself how strange your life is that you just that thought.

I will say, and I mean this as a sincere compliment, that I feel like it hits a lot of the same notes as a sports anime. And I feel like BSD fans might resent the comparison, but as I am a die hard sports anime fan, I really do mean that as one of the highest compliments I can give.

Like, you know how in sports anime there manages to be this intense, “We will WIN this, for HONOR. To DEFEAT EVIL. To SAVE THE WORLD” kind of feeling to the games sometimes? BSD has that feel too, only, you know, they actually need to “win” in order to defeat evil and save the world.

And then there’s the Pure Cinnamon Roll, too good for this world, who just Tries His Best main character (which, I am a complete sucker for in a main character, let’s be real here, especially when the pure cinnamon roll is also a badass, as they often are).

So on top of that, it also has what sports anime generally does not: really complex world building, plot and character relationships. It also, in my opinion, has the perfect balance between comedic moments and pain. I mean, spoiler alert for the first three episodes, but the first two everything starts off fairly lighthearted, but then by the third episode it’s like, “holy crap, that went to a dark place super fast” but then it never gets *too* dark.

I’m the kind of person where if it’s really too much of endless pain, I have a very, very hard time watching it unless it’s an incredible anime otherwise. (Tokyo Ghoul and Psycho-Pass come to mind as shows that were very hard for me to watch but I was still engaged). BSD, I feel, hits that right balance of– when the action goes down, you have legitimate concerns that maybe the characters might not make it out, but overall (so far, later seasons may prove me wrong) BSD never goes to so dark a place that you feel like your soul is heavier just for the watching.

And that is an incredibly hard balance to achieve! A lot of times, when anime (and tv shows, let’s be honest) shifts from “light” to “dark” it pretty much just settles on “dark and pain” from here on out. BSD does a really good job of touching on painful things while still pulling back and having light moments again, and I really respect that in a story.

There’s like, a million other things I really appreciate about the show, but I think I’ll leave off there. So, thanks for asking anon-friend! I hope this helps! It’s definitely worth checking out!

Hello, I'm new to your blog and luckily, I am now one of your new "Zutara" followers in tumblr and in this fandom:3 When I first watch the Avatar up till the end of season 3 as a kid, I honestly ship kataang, maybe it's because due to my usual love for fairy tales with no angst whatsover, but when I rewatched them again this year, it made me realize that Zutara has more depth in romance than kataang. As for my question... Does Zutara have similarities with "beauty and the beast" ? just a trivia?

Yes and no. Zuko and the Beast have similar characteristics, as do Katara and Belle, but their dynamics (I assume we are talking about the Disney version) are very different.

Zuko and the Beast are either cursed, or think themselves cursed:

Zuko: It’s ok. I used to think this scar marked me. The mark of the banished prince, cursed to chase the Avatar forever. But lately, I’ve realized I’m free to determine my own destiny, even if I’ll never be free of my mark. 

As a result of their disfigurement, they become temperamental and isolated, seeing no way out of their circumstances even though they are royalty. Only by changing themselves on the inside can they transform their outer lives as well.

Katara and Belle both grew up in constrained circumstances, Belle in a “poor provincial town” that doesn’t have the intellectual stimulation she is looking for; Katara in the war-ravaged South Pole where her people are living at a subsistence level. Belle wants adventure in the wide world; Katara wants to travel across the globe to master waterbending. Katara, I would argue, develops quite a bit more, not just in mastery of her craft but in maturing as a person. Belle is already pretty much the person she wants to be at the beginning of the movie.

“Beauty and the Beast” is about Belle finding adventure and the Beast learning from Belle how to be an unselfish, compassionate, even social human being. While Zuko certainly undergoes an arc of that kind, said arc is helped by, but does not hinge on, Katara’s presence in his life. It is his uncle who is the most important factor in Zuko’s development besides Zuko himself. Katara doesn’t “save” or redeem Zuko. Also, there is a lot more reciprocity in Avatar; during “The Southern Raiders”, Zuko was there for Katara when she was angry and confused, whereas the Beast’s aid to Belle is based on brute strength, e.g. rescuing her from the wolves. Most telling of all, while Zuko captures Katara for a single evening, later they are imprisoned together, and later still, Katara and the rest of the GAang are ready to attack and imprison Zuko, the only thing stopping them being Zuko’s aid in defeating Combustion Man. Zuko is not the master of the house Katara is dwelling in; he has no authority over her or her family. If anything, in Season 3 it is Katara who has authority over Zuko, since Aang won’t let him join the GAang until all of his friends are on board.

Katara and Zuko’s character arcs in A:TLA are about two individuals making their lives whole again, sometimes with each other’s help, sometimes with the help of friends and family. “Beauty and the Beast” is about two people making one life together, and only realizing how much that means once the mutual life is threatened.

anonymous asked:

I figure most fans can agree that the game tells us rather than shows us that Noct & Luna are [Supposed To Be] in love (unless you don't, that's cool too) & it makes that 2nd end-credit scene sit really odd for me since all of the emotional weight is really with the bros not with Noct & Luna's relationship & I feel they didn't earn it, you know? & tbh sometimes I'm just kinda bummed Noct wasn't fishing or doing something fun, they're just /sitting/ & Luna doesn't even get a chair. Thoughts?

Yeah, I’m a fan that agrees that Luna and Noctis are a little bit odd, considering that they’re such an odd dynamic compared to the natural relationship of some of the others characters (particularly Noctis and the boys). It’s understandable in that sense too, considering that Noctis and Luna only were able to communicate through a book for 12 years, I think? It’s a little bit of an odd thing, since these two should honestly have a genuinely beautiful relationship – and they most certainly could. But the way the game handled these two was kind of a bummer, to be honest. There could have been alot of potential with it if they handled it a bit better.

But I can also see how Noctis and Luna remain canon, too. Like, they managed to keep in contact through a book for twelve years, and it seems kinda like ‘Eeeh. It’s a book.’ But think of it this way too: the book is kinda like a letter from a friend – correspondence of lovers and allies over years upon years. It’s almost like being able to talk to someone every day or when you can, see their messages pop up in your inbox or mailbox, and realizing that just because you don’t see this person, you know they exist. Their voice can be imagined through the letters sent to you. Their recollection, their thoughts, their experiences. These two would send letters and notes to each other in books for twelve years until the fateful day where they would one day be married – lovers finally having the moment to potentially reunite after a twelve year friendship that perhaps blossomed into something more.

Just because you don’t see a face in person doesn’t mean that you’ve lost the ability to love them or care about them, you know? In older days, soldiers and lovers would exchange letters to one another, poets and muses share stories and tales – in a way, Noctis and Luna are similar. The thought of waiting eagerly for a letter or note from someone you care for, the little exchanges that feel restricted and forgotten, it’s almost enlightening and heartwarming to receive a message from someone you were so close to and still want to be close to.

In a way, it’s like the cyber conversations people have with each other on the internet. You wait eagerly for a message for someone you may or may not have met before or in a long time, but you still want to talk to them, to see them, because despite not seeing their face unless through pictures or drawings, you still don’t really lose your friendship with them. It’s just as if you were talking to them in person, just not face-to-face unfortunately.

Perhaps not as fast as being able to send a message or post a note with the utmost of speed, but they still managed to keep in touch through the book. Like, there’s the whole ‘Why not just call?’ And the justification is that Lucis is far more technically advanced than Tenebrae was, restricting technological communication. But it’s also the fact that these two were probably so young before they could use phones or other means of communication too. The notebook worked, so why not stick with it? But I digress on that. Despite it not being fast, they still managed to talk, tell each other their stories, and acted as if it were just like writing to a friend and love, a message you eagerly wait for that, when it arrives, it immediately brightens your day and brings a smile to your face.

The unfortunate thing about all of these thoughts is that we never really got to see the moments where Lunafreya would send Noctis notes and maybe little doodles about how her training as Oracle is going or the messages and pictures Noctis would send to Lunafreya about how he’s been handling school and about the new friend he made in high school. The little messages and interactions that mean the whole world to the two until one day, when Niflheim’s occupation would end, the two can finally meet in person and tell each other all that they talked about in person finally.

So yeah, I’m a little bummed out about the whole Noctis/Luna dynamic never really was handled that well, but I still don’t write out the potential that the relationship has either. I may have other ships I prefer, but I still like Noctis and Luna as a ship too. There’s a charm about the ‘letters from a lover’ trope that I really like~

Poly! Kino/Yuto


poly! kino and yuto
* I’m fired up already
* prequel: Yuto is my bias and kino is the reason I have breathing problems
* first let’s talk about personality differences
* like yuto is so quiet and calm and collected and doesn’t like showin emotions
* and then there’s kino
* who I don’t think has been quiet for more than fifteen consecutive seconds in his whole life
* p sure the boy was born talking
* anyway I digress (like always when talking about these noodles)
* so we aLl know that yuto and kino are super tight
* it might be my fav ptg ship (it is)
* and so you’re friends w all of pentagon right
* which just means you get teased all the time
* you all know kino was the one who came up with it
* (it was yuto but kino takes the credit)
* so kino literally walked up to you one day with shy yuto in tow
* “Date us!”
* “…I’m sorry do what now”
* That’s when kino realizes that might not be the best way to start the conversation
* So he tries to find the right words until yuto steps in
* God bless adachi
* And he’s just all quiet about it
* “We both really like you and each other and so we were thinking maybe we could try all dating each other but only if it’s okay with you I mean…”
* I’m so soft for yuto
* It takes you a solid 4.67 minutes to process what they suggested
* obviously you agree
* Onto the cute stuff we’re all here for
* Yuto needs affection. He thrives off of it. He’s always hugging or touching someone in some way
* This means that you cannot have movie nights with yuto dragging you over to sit with him
* To which kino is like “uhm bitch what she’s my girlfriend too!!”
* So yuto just opens his arms
* Here come kino!!!
* And now yuto has a kino in one arm and you in the other
* S O F T
* You and kino end up falling asleep half draped over yuto
* And yuto is like ’??? I cannot move?? My legs???’
* So he tries to very gently move you
* He ends up dropping you on the floor tho
* “damnIT YUTO”
* Kino wouldn’t even care he’d just climb back on Yuto’s lap and curl up again
* Enough with sleep
* In general yuto would be v touchy
* While kino would be very attention needy but differently
* Like he would always be the one sending texts to check up on you and yuto
* “Is everyone feeling well today?”
* “Kino I’m standing next to you”
* “I’m trying to be cute yuto”
* “You don’t have to try”
* So much corny flirting
* it annoys the others to no end
* “If you two don’t shut up about y/n I will personally throw you out of cube”
* “Will you, Hui? Will you really?”
* Yuto is the voice of reason
* Except that one time
* “Yuto we are not flying to Japan just because the trees bloomed”
* “But please?”
* “Yuto nO”
* “We’re on break though!”
* “Yuto, kino is right- wow never thought I’d say that” “gee thanks babe”
* “But I wanna show you Japan… my home…”
* it’s pretty obvious that you and kino both break at that
* “We can’t stay too long”
* Yuto lights up !!!!!
* He takes you and kino on adventures through all of his favorite places
* Back to everyday

Head Trauma

A bluepulse OT3 fic

EDIT: For those who would find reading this on Ao3 easier on the eyes, here’s the link: Head Trauma (Ao3 version)

The loud crack was enough to make the team momentarily freeze, their eyes darting skyward to lock on Blue Beetle. For a moment he was spiraling toward the ground, his wings beating unbalanced and irregular. For that split second Impulse felt like his heart stopped. Almost as quickly as it happened he righted himself and flew straight at the meta who had thrown the giant chunk of concrete at his head to take him down quickly and efficiently.

Robin thought for a moment of ordering a tactical retreat, but they were so close to completing the mission, and judging by the way Blue Beetle was making quick work of the situation he was fine. ‘…Finish the mission. Then check in as soon as possible.’

As soon as they had secured the weapons-shipment Robin notified the League and ordered his team to fade back. The moment they had regrouped to wait for pickup from Nightwing, Tim turned to Jaime and spoke. “Are you okay? That sounded like a serious hit.”

All eyes turned to focus on Jaime. His head tilted to the side, but he didn’t armor-down. The look in his eyes was… off.

“Blue?” Bart asked as he darted over to his side.

Gold eyes glanced at Bart, inscrutable, but not hostile or warm. When he spoke it was all too clear that Jaime wasn’t the one speaking. “There is a problem,” he said without Jaime’s accent, “The head trauma is serious. Jaime Reyes is currently unconscious.”

The beginning of the first session of our sophomore year (is basically new PC introductions, so this is very long):
  • DM: Wind whips the sharp rain across your bodies, soaking its cold into you even further. A wave that dwarfs the three-masted ship you're on crashes over you, washing men and wreckage into the ichor-black water. All you can do is cling to whatever railing or rigging you've found and endure the raw fury of the ocean. There was no time for preparation or even to flee belowdeck, azure sky eclipsed by the roaring tempest in a matter of heartbeats. The water and the wind leaves you deafened and near-blind as your very existence seems to tear itself apart around you. The ship crests a wave and you see before you a swirling maw in the sea that holds only blackness. Your course is inevitable. The crew has been lost, and no feats of strength or of seamanship can counter the force that has driven the weather against you. Demented laughter booms like thunder as you are swept into the hungry ocean. The boards beneath you crack and splinter, the icy water freezes your muscles and fills your lungs. The singular chaos of sound grows silent, and you sink into the void.
  • Party: *silence*
  • Logan: Alright, good campaign guys!
  • Alice: You win!
  • DM: Ahem. But we get ahead of ourselves, for this is not how your story begins. There are many types of beginnings: fairy tales often begin with "Once upon a time..."; Great epics with the heraldry of the hero or of his people. Some stories start with a far-off land, a god, and their timeless homes. The best stories, though, the ones dearest to my heart, well. They begin in a tavern.
  • Logan: TAVEEERN!
  • *shire music begins playing*
  • DM: This particular tavern is the Enchanted Beaver -
  • *party snickers*
  • DM: -located along the main docks of the city of Aowen, capital of Meroweth and the jeweled city of Silver Bay. There, an unsettlingly tall sorcerer is conducting interviews.
  • Logan: Perfect. Next!
  • DM: Alright. Who shall we start with?
  • Michaela: Not it. Nose goes.
  • Logan: Next!
  • Me: Thym, I think you're actually scaring people away.
  • John: Hello.
  • Logan: Hi! How are you?
  • John: I don't do interviews.
  • Logan: It's... more of a job application.
  • John: I don't want a jo-
  • Logan: HI. How are you?
  • John: *something inaudible*
  • Logan: Listen, sassiness will get you nowhere. I'm Thym.
  • John: Howser.
  • Logan: Howser?
  • John: Colonel Howser.
  • Logan: Colonel Howser. Colonel of what?
  • John, OOC: Fuck, I keep doing this. It's Cardinal.
  • Michaela: Cardinal of what?
  • Logan, laughing: No, kerdinal of what!
  • John: *again inaudible*
  • Logan: I understand. How can I help you?
  • John: I have learned that you are intending to travel to The Islands.
  • Logan: Yes, I am.
  • John: *something vaguely audible about an evil sorcerer and it being his prerogative to kill tyrants or something like that*
  • Logan: I do like prerogatives.
  • John: *inaudible*
  • Logan: What can you add to the effectiveness of this Grade-A team? (OOC) I point to no one behind me.
  • John: Well, for starters, I'm not stationary.
  • Logan: Excellent! Question One: Are you an asshole who will leave halfway through an adventure?
  • John: If there are monsters to be slain, I will be-
  • Logan: You're in! NEXT.
  • Alice, muffled: Hold on, I've got something in my mouth.
  • Logan: Speak!
  • Alice, in character: Agh! Oh my G0d, what, what, I'm-
  • Logan: This guy's got a deep and commanding voice. What do you have?
  • Alice: Hi, hi! OhmyG0d, hi!
  • Logan: Hi.
  • Alice: OhmyG0dOhmyG0dOhmyG0dOHMYG0D! You're Thym! THE Thym The Sorcerer! Known throughout many dimensions - and I have traveled through many dimensions, planes, and crazy planes and opposite worlds and that one world that's made of croissants - and I've found YOU.
  • Logan: Yeah, I blew a plane up with a crystal. It was pretty terrifying.
  • Alice: .......
  • Logan: .....
  • Alice: You're amazing.
  • Logan: What are you?
  • Alice: I'm a... person! Man! Person-man! Persimmon, yes, Norman Persimmon NogginNoodle, at your service, sorcerer extraordinaire of the aberrant planes and -
  • Logan: Norman. Cool arms.
  • Alice: Wow, thanks!
  • Logan, sarcastically: What can you add to THIS A-Grade squad?
  • Alice: Oh, wow, a tall guy! You look cool.
  • Logan: I'm sitting. How can you tell?
  • Alice: No, he's tall. *gestures to John* Though, everyone's tall. I'm a gnome. I am a gnome. That is it. That is all.
  • Logan: Okay, well, you can sit up on the desk if you want.
  • Alice: I specialize in invocation, and transmutation! If you don't like something, I can change it! If you don't like me, I can change it. *giggles nervously* Please like me.
  • Logan: I'll keep that in mind. Go stand by that guy. *gestures to John* Next!
  • Party: *silence*
  • Emily: *raises hand*
  • Logan: Okay. Hi. You have a cool axe.
  • Emily: Thanks.
  • Logan: Name?
  • Emily: Sheeela.
  • Logan: Sheila. Okay. Where are you from?
  • Emily: The Dirt.
  • Logan: The dirt?
  • Emily: Yeah.
  • Logan: Interesting. A woman of the earth. So you're a druid?
  • Emily: No, I'm... *trails off uncertainly* (she's a first-time player)
  • Logan: I can see you're new to this world. Um, what can you do to benefit our party?
  • Emily: *long pause* Um. I have a spyglass.
  • Logan: Excellent! What would you say is your biggest disadvantage in the workplace?
  • Emily: *longer pause* Color-coordinating. I have color-coordinating problems.
  • Logan: Okay. Now, say you were staring down three teleporting blink-dogs (he's actually referring to the hounds of tindwylos the DM kept siccing on us in the last story arc) in an aberrant plane and all you had was a crystal that could possibly destroy it but maybe kill you, sending you back in time. What would you do?
  • Whole party: *silence*
  • John: What?
  • *Whole party bursts out laughing*
  • Emily: Can I call a family member?
  • Logan: That was close to the right answer, which was: Ask Thym what to do! Go stand over there. Next!
  • Michaela, playing an 11 year old fetchling fresh from the Shadow Plane: Hi.
  • Logan: Hi!
  • Michaela: Hi.
  • Logan: Hi! *pause* So, you talk first.
  • Michaela: I talk first?
  • Logan: Well, now I did, so you kinda screwed it up.
  • Michaela: I said "hi" firs-
  • Logan, demandingly: Who are you?
  • Michaela: My name's Leilani, so yeah.
  • Logan: Interesting... What would you say your favorite color was?
  • Michaela: I don't know, I come from a place where there isn't any color. It's actually kind of scary to be here.
  • Logan: *pause* Uh, two horses leave a town, traveling in opposite directions. One travels at 50/mph, the other dies instantly. Which horse is best?
  • Michaela: Is this... a trick question?
  • Logan, seriously: No. I am asking you which horse is best: the one that dies instantly, or the one that can successfully travel at fifty miles an hour, an exceptional speed for a horse.
  • Michaela: Well, you didn't tell me where we were. In a desert, the one that is dead would probably be of more use to me.
  • Logan: Explain how.
  • Michaela: You cut open its belly and crawl inside so you don't freeze to death.
  • Logan: It's a desert. You're in a town. It died in a town. Why don't you stay at an inn? What if its blood freezes, giving you hypothermia in the night?
  • Alice: I have been to a dimension that is nothing but dead horses. It was terrifying.
  • Logan: Alright, what's your name?
  • Michaela: My name's Leilani.
  • Logan: Leilani? Alright, I'm gonna write these down. *to John* So, your name is Hector...
  • John: Howser.
  • Logan: Howser...
  • Me: Hector.
  • Michaela: Hector-Howser?
  • Alice: I'm gonna go sit over with Trillani.
  • Michaela: Leilani.
  • Logan, to Alice: Uh, okay, I know it, but it's something weird... *points to Alice* Name!
  • Alice: Uh, oh, you can call me that, but my name is Norman.
  • Logan: Norman... *turns to Emily* Sheila...
  • Emily: Yeah.
  • Logan: Sheeelaaaaaaa. Aaaand... *turns back to Michaela* Ilani?
  • Michaela: Leilani.
  • Logan, nodding: Leilani. Layla.
  • Michaela: Uh... Layla! That's not me.
  • Logan: Your name sounds like Layla. Excellent!

karonnaar  asked:

Um, why do you ship SasoSaku? I'm not saying this because I have anything against it, but I was just curious. Not a lot of people ship it. They mainly ship Sasori with Deidara. This may be because Sasori and Sakura's only interactions were during battle when they were trying to kill each other. Deidara and Sasori have a history together and ya know, opposites attract. I think Deidara's one sided admiration is cute, so I partially ship it. But why ship Sasori and Sakura? Please explain it to me.

Well, I don’t like it in canon at all; their age difference is concerning, as is the fact that he’s a puppet man… But I think it’s a perfectly fine pairing if it’s an AU where he’s around her age and not so distant from humanity :) Yeah, I’ve always kind of liked it… Never thought about it much though. Suddenly, I was like “Wow, you know what, these two look great together!” so I drew them a bunch! Was only going to do one pic, but so many people got excited, so I thought “well, why not?” And I really like how some of these turned out!

Their fight is the longest fight in the series (at least it feels like it) but I have to say, it’s probably my favorite fight too. Sakura got some development in her skills, as well as emotionally. I was rewatching Sasori’s death scene for references (for this really depressing mini comic I’m making about her afterthoughts on him) and I realized that it’s just about the only time that Sakura gets to use a bit of the “talk no jutsu”. Like, she tries to talk to Sasori. She gets angry at his distance from humanity, and you can tell that she is saddened by his loneliness and how he turned out. She feels so personally involved, because of her bond with Chiyo, and she wishes it would have turned out better for both of them.

But yeah, you can see her develop feelings for both her partner and her enemy, and it’s about the only time this occurs. Naurto gets closure with pretty much everyone he fights. Even when Sakura is present, you only get to hear Naruto talk, because he’s the lead. But when you got Sakura alone, you could see some of her actual values as a shinobi and a human being. It was only a sneak preview, so I wanted to make a comic that delved a little more into her thoughts, because Sakura deserves some positive emotional depth, dammit.

I guess the reason I like this pairing at all is because Sasori brought out something in her that we as an audience didn’t get to really see often. You can tell that if they ever were to be in a relationship, they would understand each other and Sasori would actually be able to bring out the best in her. He made her want to stand up for what she believed in. He made her have to think about things she probably doesn’t really think about, like imagining herself in Sasori’s situation. You can tell that she put herself in his shoes, and it’s a big moment for her as a person. And it makes you even more disheartened when he dies, because you didn’t want him to. It wasn’t possible, but you want Sasori to be happy.

I feel like in a different world, Sakura could make him happy… They have things in common, such as their interest in biology and books. They would also have great physical chemistry ;) Sasori is quite a tease, and Sakura is the type to react in many different ways to that sort of teasing, which is why she’s an interesting character. I feel like this ship is just as good as most of the Sakura ships out there. Honestly, I like her with Sasori more than I do with Sasuke…

Anyway, this is probably the major reason people ship Sasosaku. Sasori seemed to care about her development. He helped her blossom as a kunoichi and as a person. He enjoyed fighting her, and by the end, he respected her. And she did care about him. They bonded through their fight. Anime likes to talk about “bonding through fists” a lot, and as a martial artist, I can say that it’s an actual thing. You feel more connected with a person after you spar them. You feel synchronized after a good fight, and you respect each other.

Sasori, in the end, changed his feelings towards both her and his grandmother. It’s why he allowed himself to be killed by them. He felt as though they were worthy to defeat him. They earned it.

In a setting where Sasori isn’t so detached from human emotions, I think Sakura would be able to bring out the good in him and make him happy with his life, and vice versa. So yeah… That’s why I ship Sasosaku! :)

As for SasoDei… That is a whole other rant. Seriously, I could talk about why I don’t ship it for hours. If you or someone else wishes to hear that, you are welcome to ask! I love talking about this stuff! Especially anything to do with Sasori or Deidara.

Also, here is an analysis of mine on canon Sasori. It may help you understand more about why I think the way I do about him with Sakura. 

A Reality Check for the Reylo Fandom by the apparent Jim Hopper of the fam who doesn’t care about your Mirkwood Bullshit!

BIG FUCKING #1.) Who gives a shit what other people say? Do whatever “THE FUCK” You want to do! Stop whining like a bunch of piss babies, because some fangirl doped up on College Feminist Bullshit, says that they’re a *Bullshit Label* if you like Reylo. You know what that person is? It’s a random ass person on the internet that you don’t know, who doesn’t know you, with a dumb ass opinion. Who cares? Who “THE FUCK” cares that she thinks that? They’re not a good person for calling you *Random Bullshit Label*, and you’re equally not a good or bad person for shipping Reylo. It’s a fictional world, shipping is like playing with action figures, Fanfiction writing is for people who didn’t stop playing with action figures in their head. When you like a fandom, you automatically, mentally buy the whole collection of eight quarter inch figures. They’re your fucking toys, play with them how you want to, and don’t worry about anyone else’s rules but your own.

Stop fucking whining about what someone you don’t know said about something you like!

2.) Stop perpetuating this myth that all, or even most, Reylos are fangirls. They’re not, not even by long shots. Some of the most articulate, most passionate Reylos are fellow fanboys. Some of the most engaging, intriguing Reylo theories have come from long time Star Wars fanboys who were highly skeptical of a Star Wars without George Lucas but have latched onto the enormous potential of this beautiful mythical romance in a Sci-Fi Opera. So if you’re one of those assholes who think every Anti or “Anne” or whatever the fuck you call them these days, is some “Butt Hurt Fanboy” think again sewer pickle!

I guarantee you, you’ll never, NEVER, get the kind of vile hate and, frankly, dangerous accusations the male Reylo fans get from the biggest, craziest, cocksuckers on the web. I’m talking being accused of being a Rapist, of fantasizing about raping Rey, threats of warning Daisy Ridley’s management team of the potential of this person wanting to rape her. (Oh yeah, that shit happened to someone I know really well.) and other vile shit that you could probably image based on that line of examples. And all of it, because, a dude who builds Star Wars models with his kid brother thought Kylo Ren and Rey are gonna fall in love. So next time you want to take a sip from that tacky “Fanboy tears” mugs, because, you’re, like, a total “Badass” and just #Slay,  just remember some of us would take getting called “Fake fans” over being accused and threatened of being a potential rapist, just for having a dick and liking a fucking fictional romance.

3.) Nobody cares what Race/Ethnicity you are. I’m not gonna tell you mine, because, I just made a bet with someone right now to see how many ass sore college pricks are gonna accuse me of privilege (She says five BTW) … Okay, listen, just because you’re a fucking pygmy, who is black as shit, and eats only the meat of the animals of the forest that have the evilest souls in them … doesn’t fucking mean that you get extra points, because, the first fucking movie you saw when you escaped the island was TFA and you think that Poser Vader and shitty Hermione are in love.

If some Anti comes along and accuses you of being a Racist for liking Reylo, you have the right to ignore, to block, or to scoff at that person. They’re a shitty person for leveling a serious charge over something trivial like Star Wars. What you don’t have a right to do is bore me with the details of your fucking skin color. Nobodies cares, because, it’s the internet, everybody, thinks everybody is white, because, only fucking white people scream privilege at people who are probably not white. And if you’re someone who is not white screaming privilege, most likely you are the most privilege mother fucker on the planet, cause you got a computer, you got internet, and you’re fucking screaming on a Star Wars tag on the most privileged website on the entire internet beyond that place on the dark net where Russian mobsters and Rich Sheikhs buy sex slaves.

This isn’t Mississippi 1932, this isn’t “Scavenger’s Hoard”, you’re an individual, not a skin color … act like it.  

4.) Rey doesn’t know how to suck a dick, she doesn’t know what Sex is, she raised herself on a desert planet. She probably can’t even read.

5.) Kylo can’t even “girl” much less talk to one.

6.) Their first time having sex Kylo won’t even remember, because, Rey gave him a concussion when he put his finger inside her, because, she thought he was trying to seal one of her organs.

7.) She really needs to just watch the damn video …

8.) Finn did, Rose showed him that shit and he’s been grinning like an asshole for like two days already.

I forgot to post this with the whole age debacle, but I really didn’t change anything, haha. Here’s my spill about all of them.

OTPs/Love Them:

Shiro/Keith: pretty obvious there’s something between the two, and they have a history together. I really would have liked to see some kind of flashback centering around them in Season 1, but it seems like Season 2 will dive into the specifics of their relationship (…hopefully, honestly the relationship writing in this show is pretty shoddy at times). I also like all the touching between them, I’m really into ships that unabashedly touch each other. There’s a mutual trust and respect immediately that you unfortunately don’t see in the majority of popular slash ships.

Lance/Hunk: I’m always (always) a sucker for best friends into something more. Hunk and Lance also seem to understand one another in ways the other Paladins do not, and again, there seems to be a lot of trust in their relationship. Also they’re blue + yellow and that’s UCLA/beach colors, and that’s beautiful. Plus, they’re gonna start Season 2 together, and I can’t wait to see some glorious shipping fodder.

Lance/Allura: I’m in the minority, but I love Lance’s crush on Allura. It’s not super present, but the scene in Episode 10 really sold me on the ship. Lance’s giddiness over Allura’s “confession” that he was attractive made me laugh. I can definitely see the two working well together as Lance grows and matures. He’s outgoing, vibrant personality would bring back some of the energy Allura’s probably been missing for some time.

Allura/Hunk: I really like the idea of them together! Allura said that the yellow lion took “compassion” and “heart” to drive, and I feel like those are traits she really admires in a person, partly because she always has to be so calculated about their next plan of attack, not necessarily taking in the Paladins’ well-being into consideration.


Shiro/Lance: I really liked Lance’s hero-worship of Shiro in the first episode, but unfortunately that potential relationship dynamic was immediately dropped. I really would like to know what made Shiro Lance’s hero, and his feelings being a Paladin alongside him.

Shiro/Hunk: They have such great moments together in the first season, and Shiro played a big part with Hunk’s character development. They definitely built up their trust and respect for one another, and I hope they get more scenes together.

Shiro/Allura: pretty classy ship. Paladin Leader + Princess. I liked Episode 11’s focus on them, and the fact that Shiro was so hellbent on rescuing her the very next episode. Hopefully, more development will arise after those episodes.

Pidge/Allura: a space wlw couple would be fantastic, but if Pidge really is 14, probably best if they got together post-series, when Pidge is around 19/20 or so. I also like how there’s a few parallels between the two.

Pidge/Hunk: I think they’re cute science partners. And I love all the art of Hunk pitching Pidge on his shoulders!

Keith/Pidge: I shipped before I even saw the show. I just noticed they were Christmas colors and was like “ahh, yess. Would be great if that was a thing.” They do have a nice moment in episode 5 that made me squeal. Again though, probably best if they got together post-series.

Shiro&Pidge: Their arc together was very supportive, and I’m glad they have this sort of familial/sibling relationship. I think Pidge sees Shiro as some sort of surrogate brother, and he gives her hope that if Shiro came back, so can her father and brother.


Keith/Lance: it’s boring, standard “two skinny teenage boys hate/are frustrated with one another/barely tolerate each other” that’s typical of male-dominated shows. Lance and Keith are also the least developed characters from Season 1, and their scenes together hardly have substance besides providing humor for the show. I really can’t understand why it’s so popular, or why people believe it’s a source of queerbaiting. The original Keith/Lance ship was much easier to ship, primarily because they started out as friends, and although Lance questioned Keith’s leadership abilities at times, he still respected and trusted him greatly. Here, there’s hardly anything reminiscent of that, and each have healthier slash options anyway. (also…who decided to name them “klance?” like you understand the world “klan” has only ever been used in relation to, you know, the ku klux klan???)
