Do u think maybe originally t'challa wasn't in CW and his arc was to us arc? I don't think tony was OC because He is a deeply flawed person and I could definitely see him going the route he went and becoming a p good villain but I could also see him ultimately realizing "vengeance is bad" and both he and t'challa had the "you killed my father arc" so maybe they were going to be foils from the beginning or maybe only 1 was gonna be in a the movie. (TBH no tony just t'challa would've been the best
I also don’t think Tony was out of character at all in this film. He was exactly the same as he is in other Avengers movies.
I think T'Challa was always supposed to be in it once they’d decided this was the film they were gonna make. I think he was supposed to be a mirror of Tony, that’s why they used similar story arcs for them. Wealth, intellect, power, prestige. But without the arrogance. Without the inability to just, admit he was wrong without worrying about his ego. T'Challa, who was close to his father, thinks Bucky killed him, and immediately after reacts with the “I want him dead” - however when he finds out he was wrong, he concedes, he talks Zemo down, he helps Bucky. He acknowledges Bucky as a victim.
Tony however gets mad that Steve didn’t tell him, he wasn’t close to his parents, it happened 22 years previously, not 10 minutes before, he didn’t react impulsively to the video, he reacted to Steve’s knowledge of what the video contained, he knew Bucky wasn’t to blame, he literally says he doesn’t care and tries to kill him anyway.
In short, Tony sucks ass, T'Challa is a god send, ur right, it would have been better if it was just him.
About Zayn's mentions in Liams promo - maybe that way the plan. To say some harsh things and then some nice things. If it was only nice things, it would be ziam heavy, but the bad things get the ot4/larry part of the fandom happy as well. They will only ever remember the bad things, and the ziams will remember the good things, and forgive liam too. I don't think it was backpedalling, i think it was always the plan.
Pickle, I think you’re giving way more credit to Loammy’s team then probably was deserved? Because, hand to thinking boob - if that was their plan, it was nahhhht at all a good one, and warrants a big “Por que the fuck are you doing, bruh?” For all you’re saying that the Ziams are only going to remember the good things, let me tell you right now that the fandom sentiment seems to be a wary one, and you reallyyyy don’t need that on the week of a debut single release.
Timing wise, the comments came at the worst possible time: hours before the single release, and then the titanic comment came in the wee hours which compounded the issue. I would bet some hard earned tuppence that this was the Doyen Global interns reading fan discourse on Friday and Saturday:
At best, it was a super dick move to court controversial headlines (and in that respect it did work) but it backfired in the way that not only did Loammy manage to royally piss people off, what’s more is that Zayn got a worldwide support trend for hours on the back of that first comment - just hours before Loammy’s own release. No matter how close the ties Loammy and Zehn may have, I can guarantee you that Doyen Global was not thrilled that Zayn got a trend off of that.
I’m roughly 100% sure Doyen Global watches fandom feedback and at the very least did a thorough study of the fandom (as anyone would). It doesn’t take a top notch Business Hoe to see and recognize that not only are the Ziams probably one of the more dedicated sections of Loammy’s fanbase, but also, Loammy is targeting the very same genre as Zayn - there is serious fandom overlap there.
To break it down even more Business Hoe wise, Loammy and Zehn would actually be considered competitors - same type of music, same boy band, same target demo (and I know that both Doyen Global and Zayn’s social media managers are following Zayn and Loammy’s accounts respectively). What’s fucky about the whole thing is that it wasn’t just Ziams/Zayn fans’ asses that Loammy managed to chap - it was Harry fans and Louis fans too. The comments about Zayn were really the whole heart of the issue, though, and the timing of the super obvious ohmygahhhhhd backpedaling Zayn positive comments felt like they had ran the numbers and decided they needed to do some damage control. Maybe it was their plan the whole time, but it was a super shit one.
What if Hiruzen had chosen Orochimaru instead of Minato? Do you think he would have been a good Kage? (Or just terrifying?)
I think it would largely depend on how much influence Danzo ended up having over him. If Orochimaru had manged to boot Danzo out of his social circle (because at that point Danzo was just about the main voice calling for Oro to be Hokage, and also his commander in Root, and probably a very big influence on him), I think he would have made a decent one. Probably not great, and more along Sarutobi’s lines than anything, but not outright bad. If Danzo had kept whispering in his ear, though…
Excuse me please do not blame an attack on Islam when there is no evidence that it was a Muslim. Second of all if this was done by a so called Muslim they wouldn't be classed as a Muslim by Islam because in Islam you are not allowed to kill people especially innocent people. There are so many muslims living in this world and if every Muslim was as violent as you think we all would be dead. Don't generalise hate against groups because in every group there are good and bad people.
Excuse me, I didn’t even mention the words ‘Muslim’ or ‘Islam’ once, because nothing has been confirmed.
Second of all, you’re an idiot if you kid yourself into thinking the PC-approved, multiculti fandom definition of Islam to be the single true one.
Islam has enough angles that can be used to justify the murder of what you see as innocent people. You have no place to dictate what millions of Muslims see as the true interpretation.
Yes, I said MILLIONS. If estimates of Muslims that fit our idea of ‘radical’ range from around 10% to 25%, that would be a minority large enough to compare to the entire US population.
How do I tell my daddy that he's bad at being a daddy? He thinks it's only discipline and bossing me around and it's not! I don't get aftercare and I get denied kisses. I'm just so upset because he's also my boyfriend and I love him but he thinks he's a good daddy.
Owww I’m sorry to hear that 😩 honestly if I was in your position I would talk to him about it, maybe he doesn’t fully understand what being a daddy/caregiver means and he might need you to explain exactly what you want and need from him
I just listened to the first episode of Bad Jew Weekly and if you’re looking for a Jewish podcast to listen to this one seems really good!
I would recommend it to people who are converting too! (I know there have been a couple of you asking me for recs lately). In the first episode she talks a lot about guilt and intimidation that can come with your Jewish learning and I think it really shows that many converts and many born Jews have similar worries and experiences! She also talks about that weeks torah portion in a really accessible way. (It is about Dinah’s rape though, so tw for that)
dont u just love how cheesy and lame gerard and lynz are... like they'll literally take any oportunity to be like "Yes i love you my love you are the best i want to b with you forever" abt each other + post cute pics all over social media like Bitch.... im Living....
lmao ‘every opportunity’ like on birthdays and anniversaries and maybe mother’s day/father’s day?? haha i know you mean it in a good way dont worry! but i dont think theyre that bad lol i honestly wish they would post MORE and be REALLY cringey like some couples
➋ Have you ever roleplayed with someone that just left an unforgettable impression on you?
Like “Wow, that is awesome” or “Wow, what the fuck?!” Can’t say that anyone really made me speechless although their writing is good but then again I am not a maniac who falls in love with someone’s writing. It’s more about how they work with their character as well as what they think of my character.
➌ Which of your ships on this blog is the fluffiest?
➍ Would you say you’re a decent roleplayer or do you have any self doubts?
I am pretty much over this “Oh my god, my writing is bad and I don’t know if I can catch up with their writing!” although I never felt like this at all. I’m writing fics for about 7 years now and I am pretty sure that my writing is good enough to keep up with people although I know that I could improve but again, why should I if I am good enough? I am satisfied with my style.

will: this boy has TOO MUCH heart he cares about everyone so much i cannot believe a str8 white male character can give me so little grief everyone take notes. cheekbone game is also still strong, but with too much time covered in stubble imo
sun: SUN FUCKIN BAK i cannot believe how far my soft baby bird kickass diamond of a character has come she’s so GOOD, but she can also break your neck i love her so much. in more important news however she got reunited with her dog. heckin yes 11/10.
lito: continues being the absolute Most™ and we all love him for it. ”i’m practicing””for what?””for my future as a homeless, unemployable failure”. i mean what a fuckin Leo- also relatable as all hell. my beautiful proud gay son. what a gem.
riley: sweetest bean in the entire universe, most unrealistic part of s2 is that no one would trust her. she loves a dopey police officer from chicago so much and most importantly she really likes boning him. also shout out for her immense knowledge of graffitied hovels, v impressive.
capheus: my newest kid hit it out of the park. he doesn’t have a clue how he got here but he’s still the best person i know and if he doesn’t end up as the president of the world by the end of the series then what are we even doing here?????? also hell yeah my boy got some proud of u bud.
nomi: what the hell is this radiant angel and how is she making money. i can’t believe she’s responsible for all of the sensates not being in prison, mvp of the whole fucking show. she’s basically r2d2 if it was a hot, genius woman who fuckin OWNS it. 10/10 five stars would watch again.
wolfgang: “he doesn’t really talk” except when he does he BREAKS MY HEART. still the most problematic of all my children but i don’t care i just want him and kala to be happy god fuckin damnit. also i can appreciate the commitment to both his Look and his woman. good one dude.
kala: the rambliest and also the smartest, god bless her. honey thinks too much about good and bad when it’s so obvious that she’s a Hoe for the bad boys- specifically German bad boys with unresolved anger issues. also shot a gun and it was pretty fuckin hot tbh.
other thoughts on other characters:
whispers: hey man FUCK YOU and also FUCK OFF
jonas: what is the point of u doesn’t naveen andrews have better things to do honestly.
daniela & hernando: sometimes a family is two gay dudes and their drama queen best friend and that is beautiful..

VILDE WØIEN: Oh my Goood, karaoke is hilarious! Hope you don’t have to have a good singing voice
VILDE: It’ll be super awesome!]
SANA: Did you feel like Sara was trying to hide something from us yesterday?
NOORA: Ehh.. no.. What?
SANA: I don’t know. I just have a bad feeling. If you think about it, those girls can just take the whole bus and throw us out. They’re paying for it.
NOORA: Yeha, but.. Why would they bother joining forces with us if they’re going to throw us out?
SANA: Because they wanted that bus.
NOORA: I don’t think they’re that psycho.
SANA: And didn’t Sara say she’d send me a copy of the contract?
NOORA: Yeah.. I don’t know. Maybe?
SANA: Yeah, she said so. But she hasn’t done it.
NOORA: Yeah.. How did that russ stuff become so important to you?
SANA: I have to ask her about that contract. Sara! Can I talk to you?
GIRL: Ehhh.. Yeah..
SANA: I was just wondering what’s up with the bus contract.
SARA: What do you mean?
SANA: Weren’t you supposed to send me a copy of the contract proposal?
SARA: I did! Didn’t I? I think I did.
SANA: I don’t think you did. Maybe you forgot to. Like how you forgot to add Noora and I to the bus page.
SARA: I think I sent it. Maybe I have the wrong e-mail address? Or that it ended up in the spam filter.
SANA: In the spam filter?
SARA: Because Mari’s copy did.
SANA: Oh. Here it is.
SARA: Good. Mari sent me a message syaing we have to have a contract meeting on Monday and you have to come because you’re the boss so.. Sana, it’s not my intention to boss around so much.. I’m just so used to being the bus boss and then stuff just happens.. But it’s not my intention to overlook you, in any way.
SANA: No, it’s okay.
SARA: But did you see the SYNG event?
SARA: It’d be cool if everybody came.
SANA: Yeah, we’re coming.
SARA: Fun! I feel like we have to fuse the buses a bit more. Get to know each other better.
When Ngozi posted this picture yesterday of young post-draft Tater “trying his darnedest to answer press questions in English,” I thought, “You know, I could make a play fic out of that.” Which is what led to the following 2700+ words about Tater and his ESL tutor.
Many, many thanks to @ktheunready for being my Russian authenticity consultant and beta!
Georgia Martin stood at the back of the media scrum and
watched Alexei Mashkov stumble his way through his post-draft interview, saw
the way his fingers kneaded the brim of the brand-new Falconers’ cap he’d been
handed for the initial official photos, saw the way his eyes widened and stayed
intently glued to whoever was asking him a question, like he was afraid he’d
miss some key bit of meaning if he blinked.
She pulled out her phone and made a call.
«No, Mama, I promise, my room is very nice. The family is
very nice. Everything is very…»
me guess, nice? »
Alexei sighed. «Yes.»
«You know I don’t doubt you, right, Alyosha? I’m not worried
you can’t do this. You will be fine.
But I know this is your first time to live in another country, with none of the
boys from your teams here. It can be… hard, sometimes. I know.»
«Yeah, Mama, I know. You told me.»
«Are you telling me you’ve heard the stories of my youth too
many times?» she asked in mock outrage.
«No, no!» he laughed. «Of course not.»
«Good. I should think not.» He could picture her face
exactly, and it made him smile. «I’m glad your host family seems nice, Alyosha.
I’m sure you will have many friends in no time.»
He flopped back on the bed again and stared at the ceiling. «I
«We’ll talk again soon. Love you, son.»
«Love you, too.»
He hung up and let his phone rest on his chest. He’d been to
America before. He’d thought he’d known what it would be like, that it wouldn’t
be so bad. Different, yes, but there would be so many interesting new things to
see, and new teammates, and he certainly knew how to play hockey. What he had
failed to take into account, apparently, was how exhausting it was to try to function in English all day. For a US
hockey team, the Falconers’ roster was shockingly low on Russian players, so
his host family was one of the French Canadian ones. To their credit, they did
speak some Russian, but it was hardly
enough to have a real conversation. Alexei felt like he’d been practically mute
Just got this in the mail today and I figured I’d do a quick write up with my initial thoughts on what some consider to be either one of the coolest or ugliest foregrips on the market.
Most people know about the Hera Arms CQR stock and foregrip. I didn’t order the stock yet mostly cause all of the non-California compliant versions are sold out. Anyway here’s the package and what’s inside.
It came with no paperwork or an Allen Wrench for the screws. Luckily I have hundreds of those in my tool box and found one that fit.
It’s smaller than I thought it would be but it’s also light, I don’t have a scale to measure how much it weighs. It has “Made in Germany” markings, a QD mount on either side for your slings, and a textured area where your fingers would wrap around. It seems to be removable because there are 2 screws holding it in place, so maybe different sizes, colors or textures will be available down the line. The texture itself is not very abrasive or harsh, which can be a good or bad thing depending on your preferences.
That just leaves installing it onto a gun. Most images of the CRQ Foregrip are on an SBR (Short Barreled Rifle), where I think it looks the best.
I’ve seen some photos on Google and reddit with the CQR on an AUG and an AR-15 with a 16″ barrel. It didn’t look that good from the pics on full size rifles so I didn’t bother putting onto my AR-15 or AR-10 (yet).
Instead I installed the CQR onto my shotgun, the Origin 12. Given the futuristic looks of the Origin 12, the CQR doesn’t seem out of place as it would on a standard AR-15 with a quad rail. I’ve been trying to find a vertical or foregrip for this shotgun for a while, but none of them matched or felt right. With the CQR it feels a lot more balanced than when I used a standard Magpul vertical grip or AFG.
The CQR fits nice and snug on rails, with zero movement or play. It doesn’t interfere with magazine loading, in fact it kind of helps guide them in. So here’s pics of my Origin 12 with the CQR. It would probably look a lot better if I had the short-barrel assembly but I don’t.
Is the Hera Arms CQR worth it? In my case yes because it feels and looks great on my shotgun, however I can’t say you’ll have the same positive reaction or results with your AR-15. This is one of those parts you’ll love or hate, but because it looks so different, you may be underwhelmed or disappointed when it turns more into an aesthetic eyesore.
when i have a few good days in a row, i always convince myself i made up the bad days, i think all the drama is behind me, i tell everybody im really on my way to improvement this time. for real this time. & it feels like im telling the truth this time
then i realise i havent washed my clothes in a week. all the food in the fridge has expired, everyone i know is out to get me, ive been sitting in the same twisted posture for five hours & it looks like the walls are breathing. & the good days are over, i realise. this time was just as brief a time as any other. & ill only get worse from here
IF they're going to animate the uprising arc one day. They're gonna draw the tiny part where Levi sits on Eren's bed right? I hope they don't make him sit nowhere else.
Oh, they better not change that! It’s one of my favorite moments.
It takes place after a long (and hilarious) day of experiments. Eren transforms several times until he reaches his limit, and then he sleeps for a whole day. When he wakes up, Levi is sitting on his bed. It doesn’t last much, because during the conversation Levi turns around, and goes to sit on the other bed, so he can speak to him face to face. But hey, it did happen!
This scene is also a favorite of mine because it contains one of the best Levi moments, too. He starts explaining how bad it is that Eren couldn’t harden, and that they were dissapointed because of it, and when Mikasa tries to defend Eren, Levi says this:
He’s not saying it’s Eren’s fault, he’s just being an asshole because he thinks complaining about it it’s a necessary step. Well, we know Levi’s not always the best at communicating :P.
Thankfully, Hange is there to help:
Was he actually trying to cheer him up the whole time…? Good job Levi… haha.
I would be upset if they change all of this when animated, of course. Honestly, I already wasn’t ok with the changes on episode 28 (especially because we barely have scenes with them together this season, so it stings more because of that).
Also this moment was very loved by the fandom, I remember people writing fics and headcanons, about Levi being there the whole night, taking care of him, just waiting for him to wake up… (〃ω〃).
But well, we can’t know what the anime team will do. I can’t say for sure that they won’t change anything, because it’s happened before with other characters (if I remember correctly, Armin was sitting on Eren’s bed in another scene in the manga, and this was removed in the anime).
But right now I don’t see any particular reason why they would need to change this scene, so for the moment I will keep being hopeful, and looking forward to seeing Levi sitting on Eren’s bed in animated form one day ♡.
