i thought this part was funny

(Ragnarok spoilers; ignore if this is a duplicate but I think the app ate it) Any thoughts about the 1st time we see Loki on Sakaar & he's telling an apparently funny story, the only part of which we can hear is "& then I let go"? It seems really weird to me that he'd be joking about his suicide attempt, unless the movie's explicitly trying to reframe it as NOT a suicide attempt, which ofc is at least partly headcanon but it really doesn't make sense as anything BUT that. (1/2)

(cont’d) In this case I suppose Loki could technically be talking about literally anything, but falling from the Bifrost is the only thing I can think of that would fit what he’s saying and has actually been onscreen.

urk, I forgot about that. 

I remember it made me wince at the time and it’s making me wince again right now, because…yeah, there’s not really anything else it would make sense to be that we know about, and unfortunately it would…kind of fit with the way that the primary ways previous continuity got referenced within Ragnarok were to poke fun at it. 

the only way I can headcanon myself around it is that it’s some other story that we just don’t know about, which isn’t very satisfying. I really wish I had a better explanation for it, because I don’t like the idea that it’s otherwise, but…I don’t know what else it would be. 

I guess maaaaybe it could be more of Loki rewriting events to try to pull all the trauma out of them, the way people have talked about him doing with the play? because that is…what that does, on an in-text level - takes all these things (like Loki’s relationship with Odin, his ancestry, even his relationship with Thor) and pulls all the sting out of them. so maybe that’s what he’s doing there - retelling that story in a way that makes it less painful somehow. 

but that’s not a particularly satisfying explanation either. 

(yeah, I’m…it really doesn’t make sense given all the acting cues and the reaction of everyone else that Loki let go assuming anything but that he’d die. and whatever anyone says I’m not budging on that issue.)

Regarding the origins of nations and their family ties, to be honest I think we may be overthinking some things occasionally. Hetalia definitely has a lot of thought put into it (to varying degrees) but the thing is damn over 10 years old. The stories in Hetalia and its world are built as it runs, and it had/has been constantly changing and retconning stuff. Some things may have been changed or forgotten for good so who knows how much things are still theory supporting material. (part 1)

(Part 2) And maybe this is a topic that Hima will never answer on purpose. Whether it is to keep it light hearted and funny, or to focus on creating newer content. Or perhaps he doesn’t think it really matters for the stories he wants to tell. That being said, it’s still weird, funny, and cool how several theories seem to make perfect sense. Figuring things out ourselves is also a lot of fun. 


Ella: I agree! Some things definitely go deeper than the surface level, and then there’s just parts that make you wonder why you ever joined the fandom. (Although, Nekotalia always cracks me up.) There are also things that will probably never require an explanation.

I’m leaning more towards: Hima is constantly changing or removing things to fit new plots. We see that a lot with deleted strips or contradictory material on his blog. He’s also very receptive to what we want as fans, and I just think that’s so cool. It is fun, mostly because it disproves critical opinions of Hetalia on the basis of it being thoughtless.

I finally made it to their first sort of scene together. It’s funny because I’ve seen both the Robert part and the Aaron part on their own in separate youtube playlists but I never realized that they happen right next to each other at the bar. Haha. You’ve got Aaron turned to one side talking to Ross and Robert turned to the other side, talking to Andy. It’s like, come on, just turn and look at each other, you’re literally standing next to each other. 

It entertains me.

Markiplier’s You’re Welcome Tour

I’m sitting in my hotel room, skillfully eating some leftover chicken and dumplings from Cracker Barrel with a coffee straw cause I don’t have a fork, putting off taking off my makeup, and writing this post while everything is still kinda fresh in my mind.

I had the most amazing time tonight at the show! I honesty wish my brain was working better now so I could write better words but this is all I got lol

The show was SO GOOD!! I had so much fun and the Louisville Palace was beautiful!! Like wow it was a gorgeous theater and I’m so glad I got the chance to go! I appreciate so much what everyone did to put this show together for all of us and it all went so well! 

I had VIP seats so I got to see Mark sing before the show started and I am honestly so proud of him for facing his fear of singing in front of everyone and doing so well! Sorry the phone lights threw you off a little but tbh it really added to the moment. And I’m glad you got your little guitar clamp thing back lol Thank you so much for doing that for us~

I had seen little clips of the show here and there from June and I thought it looked amazing but I was not prepared for how much more fun and amazing it was to actually be there and participate in the show! Every second was so funny and fun and I think my favorite part was the dance off! Sorry Ethan but Mark won this one lol The fan participation was so cool!

I love the whole team so much it was awesome to see them all perform in person. ALSO AMY AND KATHRYN!! Shout-out to them for being awesome and beautiful and going around to get questions from people!

Okay I better wrap this up cause I’ve rambled too much at this point. I might write more tomorrow if I can think of more to say. But thank you Mark, Ethan, Bob, Wade, Tyler, Amy, Kathryn, and of course Dan the Music Man for putting on a fantastic show that I won’t forget~

<3

P.S. - My mom also loved the show and thought you all did amazing!

Another depressing-ish theory!

So I’m sure you all remember this part of CH.3, where the Colonel said he was sucked into the board game Jumanji?  We all thought it was just a funny reference Mark threw in to make us laugh?  Something to make the situation less tense?

But then we get this?

Safari Hunt Gone Wrong.  And there’s Colonel, right on the front cover.

I think Colonel was a sane man at some point, but something happened on this trip.  What happened, I don’t know, but I think it was enough to drive him a little crazy.  It made him more dangerous and unpredictable, but he’s still the lovable Colonel.

But then everything goes crazy, and Damien and Selene are nowhere to be found, and everyone around him is telling him to leave.  And he’s not going to leave, he NEEDS to find his friends, and it doesn’t matter who stands in his way.  That includes the Detective.  And us.

And it’s so sad because Damien and Selene are aware of his lack of sanity.  They knew him before he went mad, and they go out of their way to defend him; he was a good person, he’s just too…dangerous.  They still love him, no matter how horrible his actions become.  

And when we come back as Dark, the Colonel Wilford is elated!  He didn’t kill anyone, they’re just playing a prank on him!  He’s calling out for Selene and Damien, his best friends to come out already!  The jokes over, they got him good, what a prank they pulled!  But it isn’t a prank, and we can see the shift from the Colonel to Wilford.  The final snap.  The last of his sanity and understanding of death gone.

But Dark isn’t mad.  No, not at all.  Because Dark is still a combination of Selene and Damien, and those two still love the Colonel.  Even after the Colonel starts going by the name Wilford Warfstache, he’s still their best friend.  And he always will be.  

“I respect you Wil, I always have.” 

its funny, the more you get to know other lesbians & their stories you realize how little you actually knew before about lesbians inner lives. the self-doubt, fear, loneliness, etc. we completely lack a common knowledge of what a lesbian existence feels like beyond the basic “attracted to women” part. i’m still surprised when i talk to someone and we share experiences and feelings like that, because i thought i was alone in my experiences for so long

How Klance Breaks Up (True Story)
  • Lance: Keith... I'm sorry, I just don't think this is going to work anymore.
  • Lance: You're just... not who I thought you were.
  • Lance: I don't think I'll ever be able to look at you the same.
  • Keith: *trying not to cry* I get it. I'm part Galra. Clearly, that's not what you signed up for. I'm sorry.
  • Lance: Wait what?
  • Lance: Oh, no I don't care that you're part Galra. I think that's pretty cool actually.
  • Keith: Then wha-
  • Lance: I just can't get over the fact that you're from Texas.
