i want everyone to fall in love with her

anonymous asked:

I just want everyone to leave Sansa alone. Looking directly into the camera right now, I'm talking to you Dicks&Drool, stop making Sansa suffer and stop making her siblings give her ptsd and shit. At this point everyone else in the show could drop dead and I would care as long as Sansa was fine

People are still associating Sansa with s1 Sansa and it’s so annoying. They’re not even giving her the benefit of the doubt. She was a stupid naive little girl who lived in a fantasy land which led her to fall in love with Joffrey and do things for him out of love. Almost every little girl is stupid when it comes to boys. Sansa doesn’t fit this fandoms idea of what a badass female lead should be. A female lead doesn’t have to have dragons or be a blood thirsty monster. Sansa is strong without any of that which makes her stronger than Dany and Arya. People’s distaste for Sansa is irrelevant to me now because they are incapable of thinking.

i wish the antizoo people could spend a day with me at work

Just the other day I was in a staff meeting where we were all discussing how we can each take species conservation into our own hands. We are a very small zoo do we can’t do big things like reintroduction programs because we don’t have the money (@ all you sayings zoos are only for profit). So we are trying to take personal steps to go out into our local communities to help save animals. We already donate thousands of dollars per year to conservation initiatives around the world. My teen volunteers alone raised $10,000. We want to do more though.

Then I watched everyone fall apart in the same week. We had two animal deaths. One was our very loved 21 year old jaguar. She is the second oldest jaguar in human care that has been recorded. I watched all of the staff- even those who never worked with her- cry. We saw our friends hurting, we felt the pain of loss ourselves- and we cried.

Good zoos are not cruel places. They are filled with people who put every waking hour into the painstaking care these animals need for the good of the global community.

The people who work there are hands down the most passionate and caring people ive ever met. i have yet to meet anyone other than the researchers and rescuers we donate to that is just as caring and energetic about their jobs as the people who work in animal care.

i feel truly sorry for those who are so closeminded and against zoos. they are missing out on a gem of education, conservation, and research.

So, basically...

Things I liked about the finale:

- Seeing everyone who’d passed away

- Defan 

- Bonnie kicking ass

Things I didn’t like about the finale:

- Stefan dying

- Katherine’s weak ass comeback (she just got stabbed and thrown around, how exciting)

- Stefan dying

- Why the fuck was Vicki in hell?

- SteFaN dYinG

- How the fuck did Bonnie wake up Elena? Also she sort of had Enzo in the end but not really??? Also how did Enzo wake Bonnie up just by touching her I’m??? YOU GUYS I GET THE FEELING BONNIE BROUGHT KAI BACK TO SAVE ELENA IN RETURN FOR HIS FREEDOM WHICH WOULD HAVE MADE SENSE CONSIDERING HE WANTED TO GET HIS ASS OUT OF MYSTIC FALLS AND HE WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD LIFT THE SPELL. but no. plot holes! :D

- Stefan. Dying.

- THAT WIG LOOKS AWFUL ! ! !

- Stefan always sacrificing it all for everyone and being so loyal and brave and kind and then DYING

- I miss Kai. Why did everyone love the siphon twins but not him.

- Why is Stefan dead

- Why didn’t they just stab Katherine and throw her in the tunnel, or tie her to a chair in the tunnel it makes NO SENSE that anyone had to die

- Did I mention Stefan’s death?

- I was expecting more out of the Delena scenes to be honest

- S T E F A N 

- How did Katherine’s hair magically curl itself between shots?

- he deserved better : ))

- Tyler’s character was tossed off the show like he meant nothing and I’m still mad

- Honestly who cares about Matt’s family

- Didn’t they say we were gonna have a two hour finale? IT FELT SO RUSHED.

- Caroline is the only vampire left which is so weird and I don’t like it

- Alaric deserved better, him and Jo were so beautiful together

- Do you think I’ve forgotten about Stefan bc I haven’t

RTX2017 2nd RWBY panel summary

I won’t repeat everything from my summary for the first panel, but here is everything that’s new. Better questions this time. Also I missed the first 10 minutes of it, but I might rewatch those in case anything important happened. They went through the new merch very fast this time to have more time for questions.

  • Someone asked about the cinematography change in volume 4 were they went for a more Hollywood-like style of cutting more, doing more close ups with the fight scenes. The answer was too complicated to write it down quickly, but basically they are trying to use different styles together.
  • Someone actually asked about Yang’s arm having a vibrator function. The answers were pretty funny, from yes (for phone calls of course), Barbara saying the hand has a spinning function (for cooking and badass attacks of course), Arryn saying yes (to replace an electrical tooth brush of course).
  • Interesting questions about the limitations of semblances. Basically the limitations are not to make the characters overpowered and imagination. Yang gets stronger the more hits she takes, but when she gets unconscious it was all for nothing, also mention of Qrow’s semblance that goes beyond the battlefield and affects him everywhere. Nora has her semblance because Monty wanted her to jump really high and swing her hammer with much force. Also volume 5 will have more talk about semblances because they know they didn’t establish the rules really well and will fix that.
  • Someone asked about each’s favourite character. Mile’s favourite character is Qrow and during volume 1 – 3 he often felt like smacking Jaune. Kerry’s favourite is mostly whoever was in the last scene he wrote. Arryn’s favourite is Neptune, her least favourite is Mercury. She also hates Adam but loves him as a character. Kara’s least favourite character is Daddy Schnee, her favourites are the other girls on her team. Barbara likes Qrow and Nora, she doesn’t like Mercury, Adam, Neo or just everyone who gets in her way. Lindsay loves Tai, her least favourite is Weiss (more said as a joke). Gray’s favourite character changes with his mood but he wants to punch Adam.
  • Animating the fall of Beacon was extraordinary difficult and a big process.
  • There exist some misprinted shirts that say Fall of Bacon.
  • There was a very cute moment when (despite Miles saying please questions only) a fan said how important RWBY and especially Blake are to her, especially after she came out and got abandoned by her family, she got lots of hugs.
  • Someone asked about cameos but I didn’t know the shows her was talking about, something about Dream Daddy Dating Simulator and Tai being in it (as a joke but who knows). 
  • They also mentioned Qrow here with Lindsay saying he’s not a daddy, Kara(?) saying he is a daddy, and Vic saying in his Qrow voice “I am sure I’m someone’s daddy, I get around, kid, I get around.” To all the Daddy Qrow believers, you might either love or hate this line.
  • Someone asked about the hardest scenes for the voice actors. Lindsay and Barbara both picked the end of volume 3, because both their characters had to act so much out of their usual behaviour and attitude, Yang being completely defeated and a shell of a human being. Kara picked the scene in volume 4 where she talks to Jaques in her room, because it’s the first time you see her that vulnerable. Arryn picked the scene between Blake and Ghira, because being sad for her is easy, but with Daddydonna (her words) it was hard, because there was so much history involved and more depth to her sadness.
  • Someone asked about the deleted _NP_ vs S__N fight in volume 3 (by the way, they describe the scene in detail in the volume 3 director’s commentary) where Pyrrha and Nora were supposed to fight Neptune and Sun. The reason they picked Nora to fight with Pyrrha was that they knew how dark everything would get and wanted to put as many lighthearted and funny fights into this volume as possible. The idea was to see Nora and Pyrrha get along, to have a lot of energy and lightheartedness with the two of them.
  • We will probably get more details about gen:lock next week. Also dishwasher1910 made the teaser poster for gen:lock.

*.:。♦ ⋅ ⋆ — MUSING TAGS - QUOTE EDITION

i recently hit a huge milestone & reached the 2nd birthday for this blog, so i wanted to do something cute to give back & say thank you !!! with that being said, under the cut you’ll find 828 quotes that can be used for character musing tags ! they’ve been categorised into different labels ( eg. the baby doll, the lothario, the vixen, the cataclysmic, etc ) so some quotes may appear under more than one category. i do, however, recommend checking out all the categories !! they were just listed by my own interpretation and definitely aren’t limited to a certain label in the slightest. the pronouns used are simply what was used in the original line but can obviously be changed to fit your character. depending on personal preference, some may be a little too long but can be shortened down pretty easily. a general trigger warning is to be placed for these as they do reference some sensitive topics ( drugs, alcohol, sex, etc ), as the tags on my blog do. i believe that covers it all !! if you find this useful, please do like and/or reblog ! also, please let me know if you’d like to see a part two of this ! you can find the lyric version of this right here for more suggestions !!

[My Teen Wolf Master List]

Coach Finstock crossed his arms tightly to his chest at Scott. “Speaking of, um, losers, where’s your, uh, where’s your little protege?" 

Scott looked around the field filled with lacrosse players, scanning for his beta. "Um…”

“‘Um’? Is… Is 'um’ a location? Is 'us’ behind me?”

With her werewolf hearing, Y/N heard the conversation between her older brother and her lacrosse coach. She wanted to strangle her best friend for not showing up to practice on time, again.

“I’ll go find him,” Y/N whispered, only for Scott to hear. He nodded, signaling her to go.

“Little McCall!” Coach Finstock called out as he saw Y/N jogging off the field. “Where the hell are you going?!”

“Umm, bathroom.” She hesitated, wishing she had come up with a better lie. 

“Practice just started!”

Y/N let out a frustrated sigh; ready to kill Liam for the excuse she was about to use knowing it would work. “Sorry! Time of the month! Gotta go!”

Coach Finstock shivered in disgust as she took off towards the locker room. He looked back at Scott.

“He’ll be here. Okay?” Scott started explaining. “He’s the backbone of this team. He’s stepped it up in every way possible. A born leader who can handle anything you throw at him.”

HUMO: You’re a feminist, you have already said that several times. Many young women do not like being associated with feminism, because in their eyes it is a movement that forbids them to wear heels.

Evelyne Brochu: Feminists are the reason that I can vote, and my main concern is not whether I should wear heels or not, but that I might soon lose that acquired right as a woman. That Donald Trump is completely disturbed. The first thing he did as president, was to abolish subsidies for abortion clinics. And isn’t it scary what humiliating statements the most powerful man in the world can make about women? Everybody says: “They are just words.” But words set the motion more often than you think. A man thinks much faster now, “If the most powerful man can say that, it is okay if I say it too.” While women previously where not given the same room as men to be angry, or different, or crazy, a man is admired for those things, “Look how strong he is and what strong opinions he has.” A woman would be called hysterical.

Women are constantly belittled. We are told how we should behave if we want to be loved. That’s my biggest concern. I could care less about those heels.

This is a translation of Ebro’s interview with a Belgium magazine. For the full translated interview keep reading.

“ With Maria, there is that option of her falling in love with him, right? Her husband is a crook; he beats her. I’m sure if Hamilton was like, "I want to be with you, let’s run away,” she would grab her baby and do it. But that doesn’t happen. Then the Reynolds Pamphlets came out, and everyone knew about her business. So instead of playing it like a villain, I feel bad for her. There’s always another side to the story, and in this case, you don’t know exactly what was the truth. This affair happened for three years, and he’s a powerful man. I tried to find as many layers as possible. Even if it just comes out in a smirk, those little details make her more than a vixen in a red dress.“

listen, everyone going on about how it’s unrealistic for steve trevor to fall in love with diana in a matter of days (or however long this movie lasted). 

well let me tell you, if i met a goddess who looked like her, who loved people so fiercely, wanted so desperately to see the good in the world and bring justice, and fight fights that seemed impossible, who was funny and kind and intelligent, who spoke multiple languages, and fought like a badass warrior – hell yeah, i’d be in love with her too. 

tbh, considering how much i want to cry over this movie, i already am, so you can go suck it. 

jukesboxblues  asked:

how do you feel abt whizzer being portrayed as a narrator throughout falsettos??especially in "marvin at the psychiatrist" and "jason's therapy". i don't see many people talking abt this so,,i'm rather curious abt your opinion

Well, I actually have a lot of Feelings about this, some might say.

If you really pay attention, he’s more of a narrator only in act 1 (I mean, disregarding his portion as a narrator in A Day In Falsettoland bc he wasn’t the only narrator in that song). And here’s why I think William Finn made Whizzer the narrator in March of the Falsettos (the orginal one-act play) and not its sequel, Falsettoland (i.e.: Act Two).

In March of the Falsettos, Whizzer was the narrator because he was consistently portrayed throughout the play as an outsider. He was the most detached character from the rest of the action. I mean, just think about the plots of the play:

1) Marvin wants to maintain a tight-knit family (Tight-Knit Family, This Had Better Come to a Stop, Tight-Knit Family (Reprise), Marvin Hits Trina, I Never Wanted To Love You).

2) Marvin wants to connect with his son (Marvin at the Psychiatrist, Father to Son, I Never Wanted to Love You).

3) Marvin tries to make a housewife out of Whizzer (Thrill of First Love, This Had Better to a Stop, The Chess Game).

4) Jason is scared of turning into his father and so subsequently acts out (My Father’s a Homo, Everyone Tells Jason to See a Psychiatrist, Jason’s Therapy, March of the Falsettos).

5) Trina is trying to get over the divorce and gathering her life back together (Love is Blind, I’m Breaking Down, Trina’s Song, Trina’s Song (Reprise)).

6) Mendel and Trina fall in love. Mendel gains a new family and fights to keep that family (Love is Blind, Please Come to Our House, Jason’s Therapy, A Tight Knit Family (Reprise), A Marriage Proposal, Making a Home).

By contrast with the other characters, Whizzer doesn’t really have his own subplot (save for the one he shares with Marvin - which Marvin primarily dominates by being the main cause of the problem) or a strong, full-frontal dynamic with any other character except Marvin. His strongest relationship was with Marvin. Whizzer and Trina aren’t really shown to interact directly long enough to have their own conflict/rapport; Jason and Whizzer only have that single moment in “Everyone Tells Jason to See A Psychiatrist”; Whizzer and Mendel rarely interacted and so their relationship is never established as anything more than acquaintance. Compare Whizzer’s relationships with the other characters in contrast with how strong the relationships between the other characters (most noticeably Jason and Mendel, Trina and Mendel, Jason and Marvin, Trina and Marvin, and Marvin and Mendel). In Act 1, Whizzer is essentially a prop kind of character, serving narrator purposes and driving Marvin’s character development.

(I mean, Finn did give Whizzer one solo but that’s really the only time we hear about Whizzer’s character that isn’t in relation/involving another character - again, unlike Mendel and Trina and Jason and Marvin).

All the other characters play a more active role in the play (Jason acts out; Trina struggles with a breakdown; Trina and Mendel fall in love; Mendel and Marvin fight; Marvin fights with everyone) Meanwhile, Whizzer is like a quiet observer to the events, watching them unfold and narrating them as an outsider.

So what does this mean meta-wise, you are probably not wondering? Well, I’ll tell you:

Whizzer wasn’t really considered part of the tight-knit family. Or, more like, he didn’t consider himself part of the family. It was easier for him to be detached and narrate the events. After all, he was also the only character that left the tkf after act one (after his break up with Marvin). The other four characters had to stay and co-exist with one another. Whizzer wasn’t portrayed as having deep ties with any other character except Marvin (and arguably Jason but still, that’s established way more in act 2).

The reason that Whizzer isn’t a narrator in Act 2 is because he plays a more active role in the musical (yeah, no kidding) and subsequently can’t be so detached from the events because they directly involve him.

I mean, so yeah. That’s my opinion on it. I like and understand why he was the narrator in act one and not so much in act two.

Polar Opposites (Part 1) | Zach Dempsey x Reader

Genre: Romance, Fluff
POV: Reader’s POV and Zach’s POV (Stated before a section)

A/N: Here’s my second request done! This was fun to write especially because the girl in the write-up is extremely similar to who I was in high school. Haha. And it’s the first time I’ve posted an imagine with different POVs. Please do tell me how this all works out or if you guys want me to stick to first person. Enjoy everyone!

Request:  Hey I was wondering if you can do an imagine where Zach falls for a girl after they talk about their favorite things and about what they want to be after high school. Like he’s passionate about being a marine biologist and he loves the sparkle in the girl’s eyes when she talks about her favorite books and how she says she wants to become an author or something along those lines. Maybe she even lets him read some of her writing?

READER’S POV

He was the captain of the school’s basketball team, I was the student body president. He was often involved in after-school detention, I was always involved with extracurricular school activities. He was the class clown, I was the class nerd. He had girls running after him, I had boys running away from me. He was 6foot3, I was 5foot7.

I could probably go on with this list but I’m assuming you already catch my drift. We were polar opposites, which was why when our Media teacher chose us as partners for our upcoming media project, I couldn’t help but complain to him after class. Of course he stood by his decision and I was stuck with Zach Dempsey for a week.

Monday after school

“So, what is the project all about again?” Zach asks me while spinning on his desk chair like a 5 year old.

“Can you stop doing that please, my head’s starting to spin now.” I say as I rub my forehead with my eyes shut. A soft sorry escapes his lips as he stopped.

“Mr. Andrews said I have to do a profile about you, and you have to do the same for me. We can use any media we like as long as we’re creative with it. I’m planning on doing a powerpoint.” I reply as I go through my notebook.

“I guess I’ll just do a documentary, it’s the easiest thing to do and I’m pretty good at video editing.” he says as he looks up at the ceiling.

“Alright, fine, let’s get started then.” I suggest and we both get to work. I take a blank piece of paper from my binder and start interviewing him.

“So Zachary Dempsey, would you care to tell me some of your interests, your hobbies, likes and dislikes?” I ask him while clicking my pen.

“Interests: basketball, hobbies: basketball, likes: basketball, dislikes: the color orange, although funnily enough that’s the color of the ball.” he answers and I roll my eyes at him.

“Zach, I already know that you like basketball. I need other information.” I reply.

“Oh, so you want to get to know me better, eh?” he retors with a smirk growing on his face.

“Not known for his modesty.” I mumble to myself as I write it down my blank piece of paper.

“You need to chill Y/N, I was just kidding.” he says as he leans back on his chair and laughs. I exhale deeply and proceed with asking the questions for his profile.

“For the second time, please tell me some of your interests, your hobbies, likes and dislikes.” I say.
