I wish you would write a fic where the ex-Vengers are hanging around Wakanda post Civil War talking and one of them wishes Tony never became Iron Man. Wanda decides to grant that wish and they end up in a universe where Iron Man isn't a thing, a world where Tony Stark survived Afghanistan but never made the armor. Bonus points if Stane was able to lock him out of Stark Industries and Tony disappeared from the public eye afterward.

Okay, to be honest, I don’t know if this took the turn you wanted to but hear me out.

Stane wins; Tony is quietly hustled away and kept in a workshop probably, where he has to work for Stane. Rhodey doesn’t get to see him ever and Stane got rid of Pepper because she was way too clever for Stane’s liking.

Iron Man 1 and 2 don’t really happen; maybe Vanko goes after Stane when he realizes that he got the arc reactor working somehow, but Tony isn’t in there at all.

Stane still deals with weapons, so the Ten Rings are still going strong, rebels all over the world can now take on any government army because they are armed just as well or even better as the soldiers and the world is a mess.

And then the Avengers happen. And it’s here that it gets tragic, because everything goes to shit.

The helicarrier crashes down when Clint takes out the second rotor, because no one is there to quick start it again. The remaining Avengers probably make it off in time, but Fury, Hill and Coulson not so much because they make sure everyone else gets saved first.

The world council still orders a nuclear hit on New York and since there is no Iron Man to carry the bomb into space it hits right where it was supposed to. The Avengers die in a fiery blaze; the Hulk most likely the only one who makes it out of there.

So the world might have averted this particular catastrophe at a very high price but it’s not even the worst one.

Project Inside is a go just a few years later, helicarriers without the repulsor technology but still able to fly and since Cap isn’t there to stop anything they wipe off a horrifying percentage of the world’s population.

Hydra wins.

(And because I am not a completely horrible person, that is gonna be the place where Wanda stops her little magic, but everyone remembers exactly how a world without Tony Stark would be and they are horrified. They never knew he had that much impact on anything even though they were right there.)

And now they’re human and living a normal life, and lasted”            

I read this on my phone when I wok up and literally bell laughed so thank you for that anon, you made my morning. Truly. Now, shall we begin?

Stelena wasn’t healthy. Their problems are worse because they’re not even remotely acknowledge […] They never once actually worked out their issues, or even acknowledged their problems

The thing about Stelena, anon, is that when they do have an issue, it isnt simply acknowledged but it’s resolved and it’s resolved rather immediately so that they don’t have to spend so much time on one issue because they’ve already worked through it and have a better understanding of each other because of it. Every argument or setback that Elena has serves to make them a stronger couple. Case and point.



In 1x06 when Elena confronts Stefan about being a vampire:

He spends the entire episode answering her questions and beginning to tell her about his past:

and Elena is satisfied with Stefan’s explanation but the issue between them hasn’t resolved yet because she doesn’t know if she can handle being with him and so they don’t move past it, she tells him they can’t be together, which directly contradicts your claim:

And in 1x07 it’s clear that the feelings are still there and yet she doesn’t rush into his arms, he doesn’t push her to because the issue isn’t resolved:

But in 1x09 when Stefan helps Elena despite their circumstances and saves Bonnie:

Elena realizes she doesn’t have to fight her feelings anymore because at his core, Stefan is a good man, he has proven it to her by trying to help Vicki and by trying to get rid of Damon to protect her and Caroline and now by saving Bonnie so the issue is resolved for her because she knows she can be with him, however it isn’t resolved for Stefan so he walks away:

In 1x10 Stefan succumbs to his love for Elena because Elena makes it perfectly clear that her issues are resolved, she’s walking in with open eyes and she loves hm and she trusts him:

Essentially, the issue for SE in season 1 was trust and building that trust through vulnerability and communication, through honesty and they make good on that, they tell each other how they feel even if it’s something they don’t want to admit because they will not be kept in the dark from each other:

In season 2 their issue was external forces trying to tear them apart and them staying strong in the midst of that. In 2x06 Elena breaks up with Stefan because Katherine hurt Jenna, that is their issue:


So Stefan partly resolves it in 2x07 by taking Katherine down:

but like I said, it’s still only partly resolved, that sense of safety hasn’t been put back together for Elena yet so they still remain apart:

And it’s when Stefan proves the lengths he’ll go to to make sure the people around him and Elena are safe:

That they reconcile:

And even during their time apart, Stefan and Elena remain open with each other, Stefan encourages Elena to just feel her emotions, to let everything out and let him in:

which she does after expressing how she thinks everything is because of her

And then in 2x15 when they are together, they disagree on the best way to handle Klaus and Elijah and they have that out

which is resolved because Elena chooses to fight and she has Stefan at her side:

I have so many posts that breakdown how they got through season 3, you can read a few of them here:




But this takes me to the next part of your claim.

The show romanticizes them to such a degree that Elena tells Stefan that he was a “perfect” boyfriend who never scared her, who was never a monster, as she’s standing next to the bridge that he was about to intentionally drive her off of a year before. The show props them up as “pure” when they weren’t even close

The thing is, anon, Elena is consistently unafraid of Stefan:

and she never thinks of him as a monster

to the point that she consistently opens her veins to him

despite knowing and seeing his demons

because she believes in the kind of person he is, in the good man he is, in his desire to combat the darkness to the point that he had become suicidal:

And because it’s been repeatedly proven that she connects to the humanity inside of him, that he is at peace and calm around her so she heads off his ripper tendencies

(^^ it is also clear here that Elena is concerned not afraid)

So because of all of this foundation, all of this groundwork, in season 3, Elena understood the context of Stefan’s situation which was that he was forced into an impossible situation to save his brother and that Klaus compelled him to kill innocent people which is why she can see this:

and still say this:

She saw him fight

Heard these words

Witnessed him defend her

So no, she never thought of him as a monster:

Even long after they broke up and became friends, they still white washed their history.  And that’s not a promising foundation for a future relationship IMO.

Here, you’re just repeating yourself although I find it so rich that you accuse the show of whitewashing SE’s history when all they ever do is whitewash Delena’s history, it’s like the show’s number one priority next to making Bonnie suffer.

I have an entire post on DE’s retcons, here: http://zalrb.tumblr.com/post/148984820350/can-you-give-examples-of-delena-retconned-moments

Say what you want about Delena, but their problems were laid out bare on the show. They both acknowledged when their relationship was unhealthy (the only couple to ever do this, mind) and ended up changing so that they could be together in a healthier way which we saw in season 6. And now they’re human and living a normal life, and lasted

So I really need people to stop confusing acknowledging issues with solving them because Damon and Elena never, and I mean never, resolve their issues.

From 5x10 to 5x17, it’s all about how toxic Damon and Elena are and the show thinks it scores points by the fact that Damon can acknowledge that hes a bad influence

but Damon doesn’t stop being a bad influence on Elena. She’s trying to concentrate on Jeremy in 5x17 and he’s intent on distracting her with sex

Damon literally kidnapped Jeremy and told Enzo to choke him because he as upset that Elena broke up with him

much like how three seasons before he snapped Jeremy’s neck because Elena rejected him

and Damon and Elena never even mention it. Instead Damon simply says this

but do we ever get into how Damon’s go to reaction to heartbreak is to punish Elena by killing the people close to her? Does he ever work on that? Because if I remember correctly, Elena has been saying the same shit since season 3:

And your boy STILL doesn’t change. THEY don’t change. Did that 5x16 conversation catalyze a change? Or does this happen instead:

Elena says this:

but do we ever get into how Damon can’t even recognize his own girlfriend? That he is such a narcissist high on his own insecurity that her ex-boyfriend was the one who noticed she wasn’t Katherine and not him?

In 5x17 Elena says they need to be apart because they’re bad for each other and do bad things for each other but is there any real reflection on the problems in their relationship, do either of them do anything to change or does Elena spend 5x18 dreaming about a perfect life with Stefan while Damon tries to stop it.

5x19 Elena is with Stefan again being held hostage by Enzo and Damon tries to get her out.

5x20 Stefan and Elena keep a secret about Enzo’s death while Damon tries to figure it out and they kiss because he was having a bad day.

5x21 Stefan tells her to be with Damon so she listens.

5x22 he blows himself up.

Where is the change, where is the development, where is the growth? There wasn’t any to the point that in season 6, the show had to erase Elena’s memories to start the DE love story over again, talk about whitewashing history, and even in season 6, Damon lies to Elena about the cure because he was once again too involved in his own insecurity and when Lily outs him, Damon and Elena never talk about it. Do not get it twisted, the last thing, the very last thing, Damon and Elena do is evolve from their issues. 

You tried, though.

Hi, I just read your simon/louis post and you mentioned the idea that he wouldn't have kept Louis around if the boyband wasn't already formed before bootcamp. I am intrigued by this and remember discussions going around a few years back about the possibility of when exactly it was all planned, etc. So I was wondering your take on the whole thing: do you feel they were picked via simon at like the audition stage to fit his mold of what he wanted? Or do you think that it might even go deeper (1)

(2) and they auditioned/knew that they were being formed before bootcamp, etc? I have wondered in the past just how deep and far back the manipulation and setup goes. So was just curious on your take. If you have tags or anything, no need to answer. And obv, no need to publish if you don’t want. Thanks and have a great day!

Hello! No, I don’t have a tag for this, but I am actually writing a book about it called You’ve Got It! which is a satirical novel but the parallels are quite obvious so there’s no use in being like 

I do not personally believe that any of the boys were told the truth about how and when the band was formed during the X-Factor stage of their careers. There was literally no need to and given the state of them backstage when they thought they were eliminated, I believe that was genuine emotion. 

Full offence, none of them are this good at acting…well, at least they weren’t at the time. (Hello give Harry all the awards for Dunkirk.)

The filmed portion of the X-Factor is like the third stage for these people. A producer will see each contestant individually before deciding whether or not they get to go to the taping stage of the show. They do not interview every single person on camera who goes to the audition, so the fact that there is so much footage of Louis before he got onstage indicates to me that he had already been flagged as at the very least a potential contestant. 

These shows are about entertainment and given Louis’ background in school musical theatre they were probably satisfied that he at least had stage presence - not something you can determine by someone singing into a video recorder by themselves. That’s pretty common with most of the contestants that aren’t total randos that seem like they’ve been plucked off the street. Zayn also played Danny in his school’s production of Greece, Harry was already the front man of a band, Liam had been on the show the year before, Niall was Niall aka one of the brightest and largest presences I’ve ever seen. I’ve said before that I’ve got the most mutual acquaintances with Niall and they all say the same thing, there’s just something about him. An “x factor” if you will. The producers do not go into taping this show blind, that would be an incredible waste of time and money. There is just an illusion of spontaneity and I don’t imagine that putting a boy band together is any different. There is a very small percentage of people who come in from the open call and genuinely walk onto the show, but everyone that I personally know that got to the bootcamp stage of the X Factor had already seen a producer and registered for the auditions prior to going on the show. 

Whether or not the guy I knew who was kicked off for throwing this party with Louis was going to make it through is still unknown. I’ve seen him sing multiple times and he is a phenomenal singer with an interesting story so I think he definitely had a chance given that they invited him to audition again the following year via an email from the producers but who knows. 

What I am quite sure of is that had Louis not already been chosen to be in the band there’s no way they would have kept him around just to kick him off the show the next day.

After reading so much of ur metas about how Ouma isn't evil and is very caring and empathic, I forgot something. Ouma sees the killing game as a, well game right? But I'm not sure why or if that's really true. If anything, due to his hatred against killing, wouldn't he be the one most against seeing the killing game as an actual game? And wasn't it stated that Ouma was the first character to see the killing game as an actual game? Idk why this but that feels important.. or maybe it's not?

This is a really good point to bring up anon, and a great question! If it seems like Ouma’s stance as a whole on the killing game and games in general is a bit contradictory, it’s because… well, it is!

Ouma is a pretty contradictory character overall. Rather than being solely a “good person” or a “bad person,” he’s a well-intentioned person aiming to end the killing game but willing to do extremely morally questionable things in order to do so. He claims he “hates jokes and lies” on several occasions, yet at the same time embraces them and in fact needs “gentle lies” in order to cope with the harshness of reality. Considering that almost the entirety of his design is presented in “blacks” and “whites,” it’s highly ironic that he himself as a character is largely morally grey.

anonymous asked:

I think my thing with age gap is that, if the two people had a close relationship when one of them was a kid and the other one wasn't....I struggle with that. Just the idea of Kakshi watching her slowly grow into a woman and then one day realizing he is attracted to her after a certain point, I cannot. I'm convinced a part of him would always see her as a child to him. If it's AU where they meet as adults I don't mind though. Their hair color compliments somehow...

You know, it’s totally ok that it squicks you! It’s completely alright if you want to say “I only like KakaSaku in AUs where they meet as adults” (or in AUs where they’re the same age).

Personally, I actually like the appeal of “whoa I thought our relationship was X but now suddenly I want it to be Y” in ships, that’s a major theme in my OTPs across many fandoms. For one thing, that’s built-in drama. Person A wants the relationship to change, but Person B isn’t sure, and then Person B suddenly realizes it but Person A has gone away, Person B you must chase Person A down! EXCITEMENT. Also: external opposition? Taboo?? I MUST HIDE MY FEELINGS AND PINE SECRETLY FOR LO, MY LOVE CAN NEVER BE??? 😍😍😍

Specifically with Kakashi and Sakura, a big reason why I ship them is that while genin Sakura certainly does intend to respect and obey him and view him as an authority figure (because she’s a Good Girl), right from the get-go she doesn’t really. Inner Sakura (her true feelings) laughs at Naruto’s prank, and she’s appalled at his lateness and trolling. The entire time she’s a genin, I’m convinced that Kakashi never truly registered her potential. The most frequently cited example of this, because it really is appalling, is when Sakura mastered tree walking the first try–#1, Kakashi merely uses her accomplishment to ridicule and shame the boys, turning them against Sakura (teamwork, Kakashi??? hello???); #2, her “reward” is to sit on the bridge with Tazuna while Kakashi trains the boys without her. Nice. And during the time skip, it’s fairly obvious that Kakashi and Sakura didn’t interact–otherwise Kakashi wouldn’t have been so completely gobsmacked at her unleashing the Fifth’s strength. He wasn’t merely surprised, he was stunned.

The inference that he thought Sakura completely incapable of learning Tsunade’s techniques so fast is inescapable. He knew she was training with Tsunade, so Sakura using Tsunade’s technique shouldn’t have shocked him so much, right? Yet it did. Because he completely discounted Sakura’s ability.

That’s slow to change as well. Even though Sakura’s fight against Sasori was far more successful than Kakashi and Naruto’s against Itachi and Deidara, even though Sakura is spending every moment of her free time researching and begs him in the hospital to help find a way to improve, does Kakashi bother to come up with a training regimen for Sakura? Nope. He and Yamato train Naruto alone, and they get Asuma involved as well.

Now, to a huge extent, to me, this is just a symptom of what should have been an overarching problem in the series: short-term thinking. It is completely natural that short-term thinking would be ubiquitous in a society undergoing constant warfare and violence. But short-term thinking causes problems, and when those problems are attacked with more short-term thinking, things can turn to shit so fucking quickly. Each of Kakashi’s decisions to prioritize Naruto and Sasuke so exclusively make sense through a short-term focus. His decision to teach Sasuke the chidori to fight Gaara makes sense through a short-term focus. It’s only when you step back and look at the pattern that you realize how fucked up these decisions are.

So when does Kakashi start to realize how wrong he’s been? In my opinion, it all comes home to him during the Five Kage Conference and his fight with Sasuke–a fight that prominently features the chidori that Kakashi is responsible for choosing to teach Sasuke. Kakashi says right out in this arc that he was a bad teacher. He is correct.

It’s the Fourth War when I see him really changing his view towards Sakura, and realizing just how much this wonderful, amazing, strong kunoichi isn’t the Sakura he thought he knew. But there’s a snag. She’s still all hung up on the guy  who literally everybody treated as more important than her safety from day one! Oops!

And we haven’t even gotten into all the things that Sakura doesn’t know about Kakashi! So yeah the stage is set for amazing things, potentially, but this is Naruto so we don’t get nice things. But who cares, really? I mean, fuck, I ship all the canon ships except SS, so just take it from me: you do not want your Naruto ship to be canon. My God! You want Kishimoto writing your OTP?! You want Studio Pierrot writing it?!?! I ship NaruHina and I’ll never be the same. Don’t do that to them. Keep them in fandom, where they’re safe from the shitstorm that is the rest of post-699 Naruto.

*coughs* I seem to have run off the rails, anon, sorry about that. Onto your last point.

I am convinced that a not insignficant portion of Sakura’s shippability is her colour scheme. You wouldn’t think pink hair and green eyes would blend so well, but for some reason it really does? She just looks good with everyone!

I'm not sure if you"re taking prompts but if you are, I have 2. #1 post possession of Waverly, Nicole realizes that they had sex for the first time while Wave wasn't 100% herself. She feels horrible, she doesn't know if W had a choice, if she was in control & even if she did consent, the moment is marred by the fact that it wasn't just them bc there was something inside of Wav. Waverly comforts her, assures her that she was all there but also wants to make a new memory together. both feel better

Another great prompt! Hope you enjoy!


Nicole’s back was turned to the Earp home as she gazed out over the fresh layer of snow. She breathed in deep, the cold air hitting hard and sharp, but the harsh winter was nothing compared to the past couple of days. Hell, the past month. Her nose ran and teeth chattered, but if she noticed, she didn’t do anything about it.

         Are you sure?

         Yeah. … I - I like you.

One month seemed like years, and all the events in between blurred together into a pile of distorted memories.

How do I even know what was real? Was any of it real? Was that day, that first time even real? Was it even Waverly?

She couldn’t stop the tears that threatened to spill. She turned back towards the homestead, headed straight for her cruiser. She didn’t go inside to check on Waverly like she’d planned, like she told her she would.

Stopping at the door to the car, she hesitated. She could go inside, see Waverly, ignore the tight fear bundled in her heart. Or she could simply leave.

  • what she says: i love agent kallus
  • what she means: Agent Kallus is one of my favorite characters, but his characterization before "The Honorable Ones" versus after "The Honorable Ones" leaves much to be desire. In Season 1, yeah, okay, he's not that different from every other obviously evil, cunning, arrogant villain, but I bought it because not gonna lie, I'm kind of a sucker for cunning bad guys that claim they're just doing their job but enjoy following it to the letter. Plus, I liked how earlier on, it was like the rebels were the hunted while the Empire were the hunters, with the Inquisitors and the 'ordinary' Kallus being the main hunters, and I was interested in how he was gonna fight Zeb and what exactly happened at Lasan. But then, Season 2 got pretty bad with Kallus since he hardly did anything besides standing around in the bridge of an Imperial cruiser, which the LSG had already said in promotional material for the show that they didn't want him doing that. And then "The Honorable Ones" showed that even though it's one of my favorite episodes because we finally get to see what makes him tick, his morality and knowledge of what actually happens is actually CONTRARY to what it seemed up to that point. What would've been better is if they had put more signs of Kallus's grey morality in previous episodes so that it would flow better. While yes, some things can be alleviated through novelizations of scenes, it sometimes isn't an 'expansion' on the scene and instead comes more off as something like a sloppy retcon/excuse, like when he kicked that Stormtrooper down in the pilot and then the novelization said that he was extremely angry so he wasn't thinking straight (though I don't know if the author was let in on what the plan for Kallus's character arc was, so it's possible he was just writing what he knew and assumed, but the SWR writers + LSG didn't say anything against it during editing...). While I also do like the irony with how he basically led like four Imperials who've gone rogue to their deaths, I do recognize that it's only ironic because he's literally become the opposite/antithesis of himself from S1-S2, since he's literally a STATE SEC AGENT so even if he didn't have anything to do with them getting arrested/killed, being a state sec officer that has switched sides + committed treason would've been ironic no matter what (though I'm not sure if this is an actual complaint or if I'm just nitpicking with this one, but regardless, I still like it, even though it's kind of expected considering the circumstances.) (the author for three of those characters didn't know about Kallus's character arc either, but you know who did). I don't like that because of the time skip, we've skipped how Kallus got from the ending of "The Honorable Ones" to where he is in Season 3, meaning they SKIPPED THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. I'm torn between if he should live at the end of "Zero Hour", because if he lives, then they have a chance of giving him proper character development, especially so if they introduce the Mercenary/the Fool, and this plotline can also allow for more Zeb coverage that he desperately needs (in addition, we could get more bo-rifle fights, because I also thought that fight back in "Droids In Distress" was cool and that they should do more like that again), but then again, he could die to establish Thrawn's credibility and with that leaked picture, there's a pretty small chance of him trying to make his way out of the mercy of everyone on that ship. I'd still be up for a Kallus novel or comic or short story or something that delves some more into his character, though. So anyway, yes, while I do love Kallus, I wish they had done better with his character arc so that I could say with confidence that the stuff that happens to him was indeed on purpose and say that it is one of the best character arcs I've seen so far.

Sorry I wasn't clear enough.. I meant by lining and coloring, hopefully that makes more sense? My lines never really follow the sketches smoothly enough, and shading is a mystery to me lol

Anon, sorry it took me so long to respond! I wanted to put together something at least marginally helpful, so it took a little time. Disclaimer: I draw for fun and didn’t go to art school, so be prepared to take anything I wrote here under the cut heavily salted.

what's your favourite Ezra films in order? (sorry if that's been asked before)(also i really love your art :D) the way you draw little credence is so adorable :)

Hi! First of all thank you so much I’m glad you enjoy, aaah :’D This means a whole lot!

Secondly, it hasn’t been asked before, but it’s convenient timing because it was being discussed the other day haha. I’ve seen a lot of Ezra films (not all, at all), but I have a tough time picking favourites…
So think of the top 3 not as 1-2-3 but a combined 1? :’)

Top tier gives-me-feelings-I-did-not-ask-for:
Fantastic Beasts.  This is a given, isn’t it. It has broken me. I’m broken.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower. This movie has me crying, so, there’s that. The book does, too. Patrick is a wonderful friend but he is human/not absolutely perfect and it only makes me love him more.
We need to talk about Kevin. This movie and book alike are both some of my favourites ever, despite how uncomfortable they make me. It’s got layers, and you’re never entirely sure if you can fully rely on the storyteller to give you an unbiased retelling of what happened? Kevin’s an absolutely intriguing character and such an asshat, I enjoy him immensely.

Also if you’re interested, the rest comes in a more or less structured order!
Beware the Gonzo. This is an incredibly cheesy film but I have a bit of a soft spot for it. The characters are so do-or-die about everything that happens to them, and Gonzo is so overly intense about what he wants to do, it’s good fun.
Another Happy Day. So, I watched this one without subtitles and I wish I had had some, because people were talking All The Time and I probably missed a lot of it. Elliot has a lot of issues and can be an ass, but I feel for him, and his siblings+mom though. 
The Stanford Prison Experiment. Given that this one is based on a real experiment that happened, this one just makes me feel sincerely bad even though it’s interesting as heck. Ezra gives a great performance and so does a lot of the other actors too!
Every Day. This film deals with a lot of topics. Like a lot. Yet it doesn’t really bring all of them to a conclusion? Jonah is adorable, and I would have loved it if his sub-plot would have been actually brought up to his family?
Afterschool. I picked up my tablet and kept drawing during this film. Robert has the potential to be an interesting character (and the story has the potential to be an interesting story) but…
Madame Bovary. Leon Dupuís may be the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen and the look of the film/the acting is without flaw, but this movie made me so SO SO tired. (Melodramatic aristocratic ladies being tired of their lot and fucking everyone else over in the process, yippee)

Oh, and he was in Batman V Superman, wasn’t he? And I saw it. But no.

I’m pretty sure those are all I have seen so far, and this turned out longer than intended (because of unnecessary commentary), but I hope it’s fun to read at least haha.

(1) First of all sorry for my english, but I wanna know your opinion about this: I see that most larries think that hl never broke up, cheat or did anything like that. They say that if they had some kind of crisis in their relationship was because of their management or some external agent (modest, syco, simon, jeff?) that want them to be separated. I disagree with this, I think that's possible but I think that if they are together since 2011 they relationship wasn't the same as before

(2) people who believe that are projecting imo. So I believe that they love each other but life isn’t that easy and perfect as some people think. So, I think they broke up a couple of times and went back together . At this point I’m not sure if they are still together. I also think that maybe both of them made mistakes. Also people are always saying how proud of themselves they are (about being gay) I also think this is a projection.I think that Louis had a lot of issues with his sexuality
(3) and because he has a triangle tattoo and wear certain shirts didn’t mean much to me. I know a lot of gay people and believe me accept yourself isn’t that easy as some people here think (most het larries btw) So I’m not sure about Louis being a dad but I think Larry was together till 2015 but after that everything was a mess, and I find quite suspicious that Harry never acknowledge Louis publicly. I think they aren’t in good terms right now, even if Louis talk about H things seems weird

Anonymous said: Louis wears a t shirt with a rose in it and people start losing their shit so I think that anon it’s quite right about the manipulation intentional or not

Anonymous said: Louis’s team’re lazy, but I don’t think evil. They just wanna make money. I agree they aren’t very clever, but even the most stupid person in the world would realise that Larry Stylinson is something Louis’s fans like. They are just doing a game, and they want Larries to play. And it’s actually working, BTY is going well. I think Louis agrees with all this… This looks maybe bad, but he’s a nice person who gives money to the charity, who takes care his family… He’s not an evil for doing that.


Here’s a post from @horsegirlharry about signaling versus seeding which was one of the most educational things I’ve read on the subject:


I think what Louis does with his rose shirts is signaling, to communicate with fans who support him, because he cannot state his thoughts outright.

A lot of the time when we’ve seen him signal to fans, he has had nothing to sell. Most of 2016, he had nothing to sell, but was the most papped 1D band member.

He knows his fans understand things about him. Yes, we do fan projects, we stream, we tweet, we help him financially. But I do not think he baits Larries specifically for gain, or at least that’s what I hope. I think mostly Louis is communicating that he knows we know, and he appreciates the support.

As for Harry and Louis, I think they were good all through 2016, and are probably still good. That’s a personal opinion, based on what I see. Larry is not a condition of my support for them as artists, it was never the primary condition. I think they’ve had ups and downs, and I have no idea whether they’ve ever separated, and it’s not that crucial to me.

I believe in them as people and artists. I want them to have the careers they deserve. If they want to be together, I’d like them to have that chance.

hi sera! I agree with your opinion that it wasn't jared's idea to have a third child. but I have a slightly different take on why that is. I think it has to do with jared's fear of messing up and disappointing the people in his life. messing up his kids by making a mistake (as he said at the main seacon panel), and messing up by not being with them enough and working all the time (as he said sometime before, maybe at nerd HQ?). in that regard, I think he would have finished that sentence 1/3

“I have yet another reason to…" with: “… diappoint someone else depending on me”.jared seems to me like someone unhappy and uncertain about a future where he feels he can only disappoint. and beating himself up about his work in an entirely different country while missing his kids. having one more kid is probably a strain on what he was feeling before - that’s why he was/is down about the whole situation (all your speculation about gen and his sitution with her could be weighing in 2/3            

here, too, of course) and why he said he’s been talking to his psychiatrist more often.  – tl;dr:  I think the new baby disrupted a fragile balance jared had with himself/his emotions and with his family life. and I agree with you that the new baby probably was gen’s idea, for whatever reason. — thanks for “listening”! cheers :)  3/3

Hello, dear anon!

That’s a very fresh thought you presented! He has said those things indeed, and I do think his fear of being a bad father definitely plays a large role in his strange attitude towards the new arrival. I’m sure Jared does the best he can with the cards he’s given, but I understand if he feels as though it’s not enough. Still, the kids are young and it’s not too late. I hope he realises that.

Have you thought about why him and Jensen aren’t acting happy with the situation? That’s one thing that really bothers me. These fine fellows are gifted actors, but they either don’t want to pretend that they’re happy with the situation, or… or, hell, maybe they’re acting that they’re unhappy. But why would they do that?

If future conventions prove that Jared mentions G fewer and fewer times, I’m going to go ahead and add that to my thoughts that there’s a divorce coming sometime in the next two years. I just don’t see another reason as to why else he would be behaving this way. I don’t mean just his attitude towards the baby, but his beaviour around G.

I’m guessing these things will make more sense in hindsight. Thank you so much for sharing your theory! I had seen the same footage as you had, but I hadn’t “grabbed” it. This is why tinhatting is best done in groups. ;) I hope you have a great weekend, sweet anon!

PS: This will be the last of my kid-related posts in a while. I prefer not to talk about them because it makes me feel bad to bring them up in a speculative post. I hope you guys understand.

anonymous asked:

(1/3) I really hope H has someone on his team who's strict. Jeff seems like the "everyone's buddy" type, and H needs someone to basically make him train. I am concerned as well that his notable music pals - like Ed, Adele, etc - are somewhat known for lacking technique too, and instead focus on "character" (seeming not to understand that the two aren't mutually exclusive). The quote in that guitar post about how he quit trying to learn because he wasn't great straight away is telling ...

(2/3) think it’s similar vocally. I’m not convinced (right now) he’ll make the sacrifices needed to properly work on his voice. I mean, god, going out the night before his first solo performance?! That actually makes me angry with him, and makes me think he doesn’t have that strict type I mentioned. I know I’m going on like it was a failure, and it definitely wasn’t. But the negatives do need to be addressed - which I know some of your commenters don’t like, …

(3/3) but I personally feel unconditional love is more harmful in the long term than constructive criticism. I am really nervous about him touring now though. And those criticising you really don’t seem to get how fragile the voice can be.

totally.  And here’s the thing!  Character is important too.  You can have the best technique in the world and no one’s going to want to listen to you if there’s not something interesting there.  buuuut if you don’t take care of your instrument, there won’t be anything for that character to show off.  or…something like that that makes more sense lol 

I think the going out was that he’s young and he thought he could do it.  He was probably killing it in rehearsals so he’s out there living his life.  And that’s fine as long as you make sure everything else is taken care of too.  but obviously that didn’t happen to be the case.  He’s going to have to learn his limits and that’s part of growing.  I know some broadway actors in particular when performing 8 shows a week who have a reputation for not meeting fans and sneaking off and never hanging out after shows because they have such shoddy immune systems and they know if they do that, they’ll get ill while others are out until 4am closing down the bars getting shit face wasted at The Duplex after Mostly Sondheim on a Friday night and have to sing a matinee and an evening show the next day.  Some people can do that!  And maybe he is one of those people but just had an off night.  

But regardless, I totally agree.  He does need someone to make sure he’s being checked regularly especially and making sure they bring a voice teacher with them on tour.  The voice IS crazy fragile.  

Thank you!! 

anonymous asked:

I just read a post about the different Splinters, and the OP basically went on and on about how 2012 Splinter was the crappiest ever. No parent is perfect, but I guess they think Splinter actually disciplining his children is abuse. True, he wasn't fully honest about the issue with him and Shredder/Shen, but he is flawed and I'm sure had justifiable reasons. But implying he's abusive I think is taking it too far.

I too saw that, and that is the views of others, I cannot change that, but I do understand both points.

See in Asia, their discipline is way stricter then ours, which is why it may look like abuse to those who do not understand the Japanese culture and their ways. Ill assume that OP is an american, like myself, and if not, so sorry about that. Which is why they see it as abuse. I see it as discipline and do not hold Yoshi accountable for his actions.

We must remember, he was BORN and RAISED in japan, he was TRAINED under a MASTER just like the turtles. He is going off by what his SENSEI brought to him, just as the turtles might one day do with their children, and I believe the turtles will have that kind of happiness, cause why the hell not. Turtles deserve that too.

Anyways, I can see why others see that Splinter is abusive, they dont understand. And thats okay. He may have done wrong, but in his eyes, he thought he was doing right, and he is FAR FROM PERFECT, but he has been caring and loving. I have multiple examples of where his father side takes control. Not with just Leo either. He has given each son his time and attention, maybe not a lot of the times, but as I always say, the fans gotta do some work to, they wont show a lot of moments on screen, due to plot, time, ect. So thats where we fans take the time to make those little father to son moments happen off screen, if that makes sense at all.

Here let me list some examples:


Season 1- 3: He was always there for guidance, no matter what, he always let Leo vent and express how he was feeling, his worries about being leader and he was there to give advice when needed, he was also there to help with Leo’s girl problem when it made itself known, Splinter may let Leo express his feelings, but he will be the most stern towards his oldest son, for the fact that Leo is the oldest. But I never saw much of his “abuse” come out in the later seasons. If you actually notice, Splinter becomes more trusting of Leo’s actions and decisions with every season, he stops questioning, and in return Leo flourishes into the Leader he is now.

Season 4: I wanted to sepreate this season from the other three, for the soul fact that even in spirit, Splinter was still with Leo. In a way, he was making Leo sane through the space arc, he was healing his son, even though he wasnt actually there. Leo was broken, and still needed his father, and I really think in spirit, Splinter was there. Even if it was just a hologram.


Seaons 1-3: These seasons really focused on Splinter and him scolding Raph about his anger issues, which considering what happened with him and his own past, I can see why Splinter is so hard on his hot headed son, deep down he’s terrified of Raph going through that kinda thing. He probably even sees Shredder when Raph starts going crazy with such anger towards Leo. Its why he was always on Raph, and maybe he could of handled that better, but in his own way he was struggling to prevent history repeating itself. The last thing he could bare is to see that happen to his own children.

Season 4: We actually recieved a nice little episode that had a Raph and Splinter scene, but instead of the usual anger stuff, he actually helped Raph to overcome his phobia. And that was a nice change. It was great to see that dad side come out again.


Now here is where it gets tricky.

Season 1: We had an episode of where Donnie was trying something new, of course it didnt have much of splinter in it except for when he’s okaying his sons request about his new weapon, but I remember at the end where Donnie’s brothers were about to become Kraang toast, Splinter came in and gave Donatello the hard truth and said when Donnie really needed to hear at that point, which gave his son the….confidence? he strongly needed.

Season 2: Splinter was there when Donnie was obsessing with April, of course seeing your son beating himself up over his first friend, can make any parent intervene. He taught Donnie a lesson and in the end when Donnie was about to loose hope, he said to Donnie the famous words, “Never give up hope” which gave Donnie the hope he needed. So in his own way, he was always there for Donnie.

Now in the other two seasons, there wasnt many moments of Donnie and him that I can remember, now if you guys have any you can remember then feel free to add some! 


Now here comes the baby of the family, of course he had moments with master Splinter in season 1, but we must not forget the moment in season 3 where Splinter go hurt by Slash and Mikey was willing to stay with him, right by his side, it was a small moment, but it was a moment. Also lets not forget the emotional moment at the season 3 finale.

Mikey had more emotional moments with Splinter then all of them if you wanna get more technical about it. Even though it wasnt shown a lot, we know Mikey and Splinter had some moments.

Mikey and Donnie with Rat Daddy:

Lets also not forget the amount of hugs they do

Season 1:

Season 2:

Season 3:

Season 4:

Not only he was a father to his own boys but he also took in April as his own, trained her, and considered her as his child.

And of course his bond with his own blood child. The child he thought he would never see again…

I can list a lot about the 2012 Splinter, yes he disciplines tough, but his love is unconditional, he’s always there when they needed him, wheather it was a kick in the butt or wise words, he is always there, no matter what.

He is no abuser, if he was abusive, he wouldnt dare let the turtles express their feelings like they do with no consequences, no if he was abusive, he’d be Shredder. Calling Splinter abusive is basically calling him Shredder.

There is a big, A HUGE difference between abuse, and being a strict father.

Compare Splinter with how Shredder treated Karai, then talk, and if they still say Splinter is an “abusive” father, then thats their opinions, let them be. We cant do nothing more to change that.

Also theres one more thing I love to add to this…..

About Splinter focusing on Leo, thats not just in TMNT 2012, if you venture back theres multple verses where its Splinter with Leo. 

Hell thats what 2003 vers was mainly about, was Leo and Splinter, but mainly Leo. There were only a few episodes where I saw Splinter connect with his other sons, so dont hold that to just the 2012 Splinter, because EVERY version is that way, Leo HAS ALWAYS been the one that Splinter mainly focuses on, and it makes sense, Leo is and will always be the leader, so of course he will always be the one who gets more attention, more pressure, and more moments, sorry that i burst that bubble. But I did. I did my history. So dont go there, dont use that as some reason to say Splinter 2012 can go to hell, and bull like that. 

I dont care if you hate him or like him, but dont single him out in that department, finish your research, I mean for god sakes watch the 2003 vers, That one is the main one that focuses on Leo!!! I think thats why its my least favorite verse. It drove me bonkers. haha. And the IDW I dislike really, I think thats actually the only Splinter I actually dont like. 

Okay I think my damage is done here.

No offences was intended, sorry if you got offended. If you wanna discuss more stuff like this or fangirl with me, feel free to inbox me!


paradoxicalgentleman  asked:

What makes you say that the female FO4 protagonist is half assed? I mean she has pretty much the same lines of the male protagonist, which could be considered as saying "gender does not really matter after the nukes are off" if you want to be optimist and pretend it wasn't laziness.

1. i don’t want to be an optimist, here, and i don’t think bethesda deserves optimism here. do you take bethesda to have written this from a “neutral” perspective, or a “we’re going to write a sad dad in the post-apocalypse and then copy and paste that onto the woman”? because i really see the latter.

a little off topic, but this also goes in regards to bethesda’s handling of sexuality which isn’t treated as “all characters are bisexual” but “characters will adapt, unseen, to what you, the player present to them”. ‘playersexual’ i’ve seen it called, and that seems fitting. a “we want to get the audiences that aren’t straight but how do we desperately make sure we don’t upset the straight audiences that form our core while we’re at it”.

2. lil things through out the game. like this.

those two “hers” kinda stick out, don’t they? weird little bits, right? almost as if someone did a find and replace for “his” and didn’t entirely think it through or do editing after the fact.

3. how much does her law degree get brought up/figure into story and dialog bits as compared to the male sole survivor’s combat experience?

lil things. stuff like that. stuff that’s easy to miss on first glance. to this, it all comes together to making the game definitely not look like it was made from neutral standpoint (and even ignoring unconscious biases, just the INTENT to start from a neutral point), but from “we’re gonna write this dude and mostly just copy+paste his deal onto the woman”.

also a bit unrelated, but lmao FO4 really is unfriendly to the ‘create your own character’ kind of roleplay, with your character starting with either previous combat experience or a law degree. kinda weird if you’re trying to make a reedy little smartypants dude who’d break his fist on someone’s chest or a big ol’ bruiser woman who doesn’t give a damn about books or anything like it, right?

which actually brings back to the half-assedness, because if you’re going to make this kind of RPG where playing a role is actually a good deal limited by the existing info provided to you by the game, you think instead of making the f!ss’ lines identical to the dude’s, they’d do some more work to make her more distinct. i mean, clearly they consider her a different character if they’ve already dropped all this background info on her

but hey, that’s just my take!

Tie Breaker - Yoosung/MC Fluff Fanfic

@cluelessnutter​ it’s not precisely what you suggested, but it’s along the same lines so I hope you like it and thank you for the request! 

Spoiler-free, 10+, romantic fluff :) I used Cheritz’s naming convention of not-quite-the-brand-name, see if you can tell what games I’m referring to, haha ;)

“Seven! You’ll get sick if you eat the dough before I’ve baked it!”

Seven guiltily removes his hand from the bowl and licks the dough off his fingers. “It’s really good, though~” he says, smiling. You move the bowl farther away and motion with your fingers for him to back up.

“You’ll ruin your appetite if you keep eating,” you say. “And after I’ve put all this work into the meal, too!”

Yoosung returns from the living room and gives Seven his best withering glare. It’s not terribly effective. “Are you bothering her?” he asks.

Seven grins and holds up his hands in mock surrender, then notices there’s still a bit of cookie dough on his finger and licks it off. “Nope~” he says.

can we talk about drarry non-magic college AUs? is this a thing anyone is interested in?

draco studying something super fancy and complex and biology-esque, and the first year he has a private dorm, of course. there’s no way he’d share a room with someone he doesn’t know, and certainly not in some cheap building that’s probably gross as fuck

but for his second year, he moves to one of those buildings. maybe because his parents think it’s a good experience for him; maybe he wants to rebel against them a bit; maybe his latest semi-boyfriend said it’d be a good idea; maybe pansy and blaised teased him, saying he’d never survive there, and he took the challenge and moved. whatever the reason, draco moves, and he tries not to be totally disgusted by the room he gets and not to freak out as he sees two beds and realises that, okay. this is happening. he can’t back out anymore. he’s going to live here for a year.

and his roommate turns out to be second year literature student harry potter

a guy who is very chaotic and a little clumsy and a little timid, who hangs out more in his friends’ room than in his own (something draco is very happy with), and he can’t quite put his finger on it, but there’s something about this guy that makes draco hiss whenever someone mentions his name

and he messes with him a bit. turns his books upside down, changes his wallpaper, keeps teasing him whenever harry is in the room, puts his bags in the wrong place. just little things, but they rile harry up and he keeps snapping at him and wanting retaliation, doing to draco what’s draco doing to him

and by the time spring break comes around, draco has to admit that he’s grown used to the guy. harry goes home (or to his friends, if draco has heard it correctly) and draco stays to study, and he misses him. more than he’d like to admit, which is a bit confusing and disgusting because there’s no way he can miss this guy, right?

but he does. it feels empty without harry there. a bit lonely

and when harry returns, draco mumbles something like “glad you’re back” and when harry smiles at him, draco tells himself to not pay attention to whatever it’s doing to him. he doesn’t care

(he does)

he cares about making harry smile rather than pissing him off, finds that it gives him greater satisfaction, that it feels nicer. and harry makes him smile as well, and they grow from pissing each other off to having 3-am-conversations about everything and nothing and draco learns about harry’s past and how his friends are basically his family and okay draco is falling for thius guy. after months he’s ready to admit that

though he doesn’t act on it, not right away, because harry has never expressed interest in anyone at all, so he doesn’t want to push the wrong buttons (he’s had enough experience with straight guys, thank you very much). so he tries to get more information, asks about harry’s past relationships, and harry starts with listing girl 1, and girls 2, and draco’s ready to give up, and then boy 1 and boy 2 come around and okay, maybe he does have a chance

but before draco can come up with some sort of a plan, harry’s already beaten him to it, just a blunt “you’re gay, right? do you like wana go on a date some time? noy just as friends or roommates, but a real date?”

and draco says yes and lets harry take him out for dinner and a movie (doesn’t mention how freaking cliche that is) and by the time they’re back in their dorm, harry has pressed him again the door and he’s kissing him hard, and that’s that

for the next year, draco searches for a new dorm – a little studio for him and harry that gives them more privacy and still allows them to be together. it works
