uuuuuh avatar the last airbender aired in 2005

thats all i got this post is a trainwreck

okay so i was thinking about this at 3am today and we’re bound to get jake’s idol either this week or sometime in the upcoming weeks. anyways, i was thinking of hosting a ‘jake appreciation week’ as soon as we get his idol and i’d love to hear your thoughts on this??? would anyone (mostly jake stans) be interested??

there’s been so much hate towards jake as a character (@ some people, please tag your hate) and you know what, he needs more love from us jake stans. so, what do you y’all think?? should i host an appreciation week for jake??

Talk to me about Cole Sear: the boy with acute anxiety and childhood depression, the boy who sees things that shouldn’t be there and who knows that his word as a kid means little as it is and there’s no way an adult would believe him about THAT.

Talk to me about Cole Sear who, despite knowing/feeling he is unwanted and a freak, keeps others’ thoughts and feelings in mind.

He willfully keeps his worries and his thoughts – the dark ones – to himself because otherwise it’ll worry others and cause trouble for others.

He’s already trouble enough as it is. He doesn’t get good grades. He has no friends. He comes home with scratches and bruises and sometimes still wets the bed. Sometimes he gets random nosebleeds, and all the girls think that’s gross.

He’s already expected to be acting out because of his age, because of his parents’ divorce. Because he knows that’s his fault, too.

It’s easier to pretend that everything is okay.

Because then it makes other people happy.

Because then other people might not hate him.

My joints as I stand up after having been sitting for awhile:

shout out to people who have really morally wrong intrusive thoughts! people who know those things are wrong and can’t stop thinking about them, people who are disgusted by themselves. you aren’t disgusting! those thoughts aren’t you and you can’t control them! it’s ok, you’re a good person.

salvainterra  asked:

i love mob so much please for the love of god tell me about ur feelings on 100% ecstasy

OH BOY WILL I !!! ABSOLUTELY 100% (pun unintended but warmly embraced) 

out of all the 100% events, ecstasy is my favorite. the drama… the tragedy… will fiction EVER peak like this again? i don’t think so. but BEFORE I DELVE INTO ALL OF THAT, there’s something i want to talk about first: mob’s psychic powers as an expression of his emotions. 

we all know that mob suppresses his emotions to avoid outbursts of psychic power. but THAT implies that mob’s psychic power is a form of self expression, in the same way that body language is expression. 

he can direct his psychic powers – the same way we can direct our bodies’ actions – but there are other components that are difficult to stop, similar to how people’s shoulders tend to hunch when they’re angry or upset, how they subconsciously cross their arms and direct their feet away when something is making them uncomfortable, etc. 

unless you know about these bits of body language, and make a deliberate attempt to suppress them, it’s difficult to stop your body from revealing something about your emotions. similarly, one function of mob’s psychic power is as an extension of the way he expresses himself. these things happen subconsciously and mostly without mob’s control. 

for example, one of the trademarks of mob’s 100% events is that mob starts releasing waves of psychic power that push his hair back. other side effects include cracking the ground under him, often to dramatic effect.

mob doesn’t push his hair up on purpose, it’s just something that happens – as a result of him releasing his pent-up emotions in the form of psychic power. these little bits of expression aren’t something he can control.

mob also says something REALLY INTERESTING in his first 100% event:

during 100% rage mob uses his psychic powers to fight dimple, yes, but these lines suggest that his outburst of power happened because he finally had to express his anger. and that implies that, in order to show his emotions, and express himself, mob has to use his psychic powers. 

which is something he almost never allows himself to do. 

never forget the disdain / loathing mob had for himself at the beginning of the manga, and how convinced he was that he couldn’t allow himself to express himself OTHERWISE SOMETHING LIKE THIS WOULD HAPPEN. 

further material to consider: the lines that he said right before his 100% animosity / hostility event 

hostility… 

at this point, mob hasn’t taken any action against koyama yet. his outburst of psychic power, radiating outward and blanketing the area, is not doing anything but expressing his hostility – to the extent that mob expects koyama to be able to feel it. 

in addition to that, during mob’s fight with toichirou, he cycles rapidly through a LOT of emotions, and this is what he says about it:

canon suggests that it’s not just a buildup of of emotions that cause his powers to run amok; allowing his powers to run amok also allows himself to feel the full intensity of his emotions. his psychic powers are key to expressing himself.

I COULD GO ON… but i’ll just leave things here for now. to summarize: mob subconsciously uses his psychic powers to express his emotions, which is why suppressing his emotions also suppresses his psychic powers. 

figure 1: a helpful venn diagram of things 

which brings us to the REALLY SAD, BITTERSWEET, MOURNFUL TRAGEDY THAT IS 100% ECSTASY. 

the fight against toichirou is possibly the first time mob has been able to fully utilize his psychic powers. the first time he’s had to, even. all the unconscious limits he’s put on himself – not allowing his psychic power to go free, stifling his emotions and powers – all come undone. 

mob is allowing himself to be himself, wholly and fully. he’s removed his inhibitions. he’s running wild and free. he’s no longer expending energy trying to regulate his psychic powers – he’s allowing himself to feel. this intensity of emotion and action is something mob has never given himself before, and the freedom of it… feels good. incredibly so. he feels free, he feels alive, and toichirou – the only individual to ever stand on a level close to mob’s – understands perfectly. 

this is a level of joy mob has never felt before. 

the release of his psychic power even comes hand in hand with mob’s body language becoming much freer and more expressive than it is in daily life. look at him go!! mob, for the first time in years… letting himself feel the intensity of his emotions, just as they really are.  

but of course his happiness isn’t going to last 

because mob wants to be a part of society, and he thinks he has to keep his psychic powers sequestered away in order to do that. his greatest fear is accidentally hurting the people he loves with his own psychic power, and when he remembers that possibility… 

the tragedy of 100% ecstasy is that – for just a brief moment, mob released himself from his self-imposed limits. for a moment, he let himself really feel, he let himself be, and in that moment he experienced a richness, an intensity, a moment of being so utterly present and alive that it brought himself to heights he’d never reached before. 

 and mob will never willingly allow himself to do that ever again. 

So I’ll make a post about Mob.

So, I (maybe unsurprisingly) have a file dedicated to various instances when Mob’s thoughts or actions are rather dark. Which was started as evidence gathering mission to try and counterbalance the excessively saccharine treatment Mob tends to get and to recognise the interesting and multifaceted character he actually is…

Characters in the series often have difficulty recognising Mob’s opinions and emotions, and while we as an audience are well aware of his emotions, I’ve noticed people tend to overlook Mob’s actual thoughts on things if they don’t align with what people think he *should* think.  

Mob is someone who does the right thing, for as many people as possible, not because he can’t comprehend bad, or doesn’t realise it’s an option, but because he is someone who actively wants to be better. And that doesn’t mean he forces himself to like or forgive everyone who wrongs him (that’s unreasonable to expect of anyone - let alone a 14-year-old kid), sometimes it just means avoiding doing them actual harm out of that dislike.

and yes, sometimes someone has to step in before Mob is pushed over his limit - thank you Reigen and Dimple at various points in the series - sometimes Mob doing nothing in a situation is the best he can manage. Because it’s better than the alternative ie: 100% murderous intent vs Mob 0% and Reigen 1000%

Mob thinks his actions through a lot in the series (although he actually vocalises those thoughts much less). And he takes the time to think through actions and consequence thoroughly 

Which in the above instance freaks Reigen out, and also highlights a difference between them: Reigen says the right thing instantly because it’s the Right Thing to say, while Mob takes a… concerning amount of time to really take a look at what he would do first. And I love them both for different reasons as a result of this interaction.

Mob is conscientious and a good person. not because he lacks the ability to comprehend doing wrong, but because he thinks and works really hard to overcome those thoughts and be better. 

He thinks about doing the bad stuff, and then actively works really hard to avoid doing them.

And I love him for it.

trr crack theory: the KING is the traitor

look i know i kNoW but hear me out:

  • canonically, prince liam and prince leo are half brothers, which means the king is their father since he’s the one carrying the royal bloodline
  • we know this because king > queen title-wise (this some sexist bullshit but w/e), that’s why irl queen elizabeth’s husband is only a crown prince
  • since neither of their mothers are alive, this means that queen regina is the king’s third wife
  • so…… wtf his first two wives are BOTH DEAD? two dead queens??? 
  • and his kids are like in their 20s (leo could technically be in his 30s but I think that’s pushing it since they JUST tried to marry him off)
  • SOOOO there can’t have been a lot of time in between these first two marriages since liam and leo aren’t that far apart in age
  • which w/e like maybe he’s just a shady man hoe ok this happens all the time look at prince charles, scum of the earth
  • BUT!!!! this comment to queen regina changes the game:
  • “i remember being young once” uhhhh sir didn’t you marry this woman like a few years ago tops
  • look at this old ass man he was NOT young when he married regina so what is he talking about
  • UNLESS regina and this fuckin king met when they were young and she has been his mistress ever since
  • he couldn’t marry her because he needed the other two wives for like diplomatic reasons??? idk this part of the theory needs more work
  • anyway so the wives find out and threaten to expose his lyin ass
  • he had to dispose of his wives somehow so he could be with his side chick!!!!!!
  • ok now sidebar: 
  • drake’s dad died trying to “protect the royal family” (which apparently was a shit job to have since both queens died anyway)
  • MAYBE HE KNEW TOO MUCH
  • WHAT DID DRAKE’S DAD KNOW
  • read: the king had him murdered
  • why tf u think savannah ran away???? she accidentally found out about it at a beaumont party 
  • who have motive to threaten savannah and would also be in attendance at a beaumont party HMMMM LETS CHECK THE RECEIPTS
  • OH IS THAT SO KING??????? InTeReStInG
  • so clearly he’s like “get out or i will take you out”
  • she couldn’t tell drake or he would also be in danger she just had to flee and leave no trace
  • THE KING KILLS HIS WIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • this is why he needs to marry off his sons ASAP to get them off his back
  • so why is he stepping down from power?? WELL technically leo fucked up all his plans because he didn’t marry madeleine who is clearly the chosen one
  • like they let her into LIAM’S competition even so wtf????? they want her as queen for some reason
  • MADELEINE IS IN ON IT

fall: a word which here means MURDER

  • maybe she’s related to regina and is the key to keeping their power????
  • this some most wanted book one realness here i am living
  • anyway except why is the king suddenly acting fake af to MC and being all “ah yes you love my son” CLEARLY he has a plan
  • WILL HE KILL AGAIN?? WILL IT BE MC?????
  • or maybe HE sent tariq and he plans to sabotage MC at the coronation and then use liam’s broken heart to convince him to just marry madeleine since obvs the royal fam knows best right like look what that American girl did to u and look what this other American girl made leo do

WOW WHY IS THIS THE MOST SUS,,,, THE MOST OMINOUS

  • moral of the story: murder king
