How to plan the perfect XYZ dragon

so you all might know me as that one weird girl who’s obsessed with XXY dragons, but let me tell you, there is nothing more beautiful and satisfying to look at than a perfectly coordinated XYZ dragon! they’re also super fun to dress! so this is a relatively useless guide to planning your own! I thought it would be helpful for newbies who are still getting used to all the beautiful colors fr has to offer.

Step 1: Picking a Primary

I started with a blank base so I had a clear vision of what I wanted to go for. Skink is a great gene to start with, because it usually has a stark contrast between its main and accent colors. and also, that throat gradient is to die for. it looks really great with treasure primaries like runes, lace, and contour. other great primaries with accents are poison and petals! Iri also works well on certain breeds.

Step 2: Selecting a Secondary

Here is where things actually get fun. I like to choose a color based on the accent color of the primary. Here, cyan is a perfect match for the accent of lead skink. I like that cyan butterfly just has that pale yellow accent color on the tips, but is otherwise a solid bright blue. You can already see the harmony between the colors beginning to work! Other secondaries that have great accent colors are toxin, spinner, and sometimes shimmer. Keep in mind that with certain colors like orca and metals, pretty much any gene will show off a contrasting accent color because that’s just how that color works! (Those ones are my favorite.)

Step 3: Taking a Tertiary

This is the step where it all comes together. That little pale yellow accent color in cyan butterfly matches perfectly with flaxen. Contour is a great simple gene that doesn’t overwhelm other genes or make them too busy, but adds a ton to bring the secondary and primary together. In addition, choosing an eye color is important too–here I chose light eyes to match the tertiary color. I mentioned great treasure tertiaries in step 1, but glimmer, opal and stained can also make for lovely, unique XYZ dragons!

Other Examples!

These are just a few more combinations that can look stunning. With the first dragon I started with his tangerine opal and chose his other colors to be complimentary to it. The second dragon had his primary chosen first, then his tertiary, and his secondary was picked to accent his stunning throat gradient. (Super helpful note: bogsneaks look great with glimmer and underbelly because their throat color will always show through!) The last dragon’s secondary was picked first, and her other genes were chosen to match. On to the last step!

Step 4: Cry

So you want to actually make these dream dragons a reality? Go ahead and search their colors and see what pops up.

There’s a reason it’s nicknamed “the crying workshop.” Have fun with your breeding projects!

Trump's voters still don't regret their vote.

Alec Baldwin was back as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live last night and the cold open poked fun at rural Republicans who blindly support Donald Trump even as he is clearly making their lives more difficult.

It’s just comedy, but it immediately made me think some of the writers had read Nicholas Kristof’s piece in the New York Times earlier this month where he interviewed Trump supporters who were upset about his policies and actions since taking office, but would still vote for him.  It’s almost beyond comprehension to be honest.  Some of these people would rather die than admit they voted the wrong way.  Literally die.  A few examples so you can see what I’m talking about:

Ezekiel Moreno took advantage of a job training program that Trump is cutting.  He was able to move his family out of a small apartment and into a house, and his daughter now has a math tutor and violin lessons.  He would still vote for Trump again.  I guess since he got his training, it doesn’t really matter if the next guy can’t.

Elizabeth Hayes was gangraped in college and credits her survival and healing to the Domestic Violence Intervention Center.  Trump wants to do away with that, but Hayes says “I will stand behind my president.”

Judy Banks is a 70-year-old Trump Voter who depends on funds from the Senior Community Service Employment Program to get by.  She literally said, “If I lose this job, I’ll sit home and die,” but she would still vote for Trump in 2020 because “of those illegals.”

Cos I said I would.

look i’m not saying voldemort would’ve actually WON if he’d tried seducing harry instead of killing him, but i am saying we have 100% definitive proof that grindelwald was not above using his own sex appeal to entice powerful teenage wizards to the dark side and look how much further that got him

Some updates about Songsong:

After the Olympics, she took a rest before adjusting back to normal training. She was really worried when her stamina/strength was far from what she had in the past and she is taking a long time to regain her old top form.

After withdrawing from competition in Baku and only competing 6 routines at Nationals, Songsong said “in gymnastics, it is impossible to always be at the top/peak. I can only face it and slowly adjust my mindset”.

Songsong is the second oldest at Nationals this year (first being Jiang Tong) and she got a gold and a bronze this year. This is her “worst” medal haul over the past 4 years but it was much harder to get than her past 14 golds.

When she completed her floor routine in EF, she was anxiously waiting for her score - now she is only left with a 5.6 difficulty. Here is how she summarized her performance as Nationals “My performance was so-so. I only put my routine together in Wuhan. In Beijing, I will only train for half a day and rest in the other half. I am not in good shape so I can’t train at such high intensity. Now I am not in good form because after the Olympics is over, my strength/stamina deteriorated quickly and I am unhappy/uncomfortable with that. After all, I have always been at a peak. With this sharp decline, I am losing a bit of confidence - I am losing my ability too fast.”

Songsong told the reporters that she can’t face this trough in her gymnastics career well but she is slowly learning to deal with it. The FX gold will mean a lot to her - more than her past 14 medals. Songsong was not satisfied with her FX performance. In her own words, “I completed it but it looks disgusting”. When her fans asked to take a photo with her after the finals, Songsong was slightly embarrassed and said “Sorry, I didn’t perform very well today. My form is bad.” :( 

But remember Songsong did hit both of her beam routines at nationals, she learnt a piked jaegar, a LOSO mount and still has her Gomez + illusion connection on floor :)

The Chinese gym fans’ takeaway: As long as she competes, they will watch! It is good if it comes with a medal but still okay otherwise. They took some screenshots of YouTube comments from her fans so hopefully she will see it.

Slightly related:

Fan Yilin posted on weibo: “In one year, I am no longer on the highest podium. Of course, I am sad but this is how cruel competitive sports is. The strongest will always overtake and win. Naturally, I am unhappy but only for a while! I saw the difference in my ability and in this 3 months before National Games, I will make myself better and I will definitely perform my best again and leave no regrets. :)

It is kinda sad that both Fan and Shang were looking their best at Nationals in 2016 and were not at their peak in Rio and maybe screwed over in Rio :(

Fairy Tail Chapter 532 Review

oh boy oh boy, this chapter

I have a few complaints please.

First, We get this big color page of Zeref and Mavis making out but then at the end they don’t look at each other. It’s not like you can say ‘oh this is past and present’ because that first scene never  happened.

Second, why is Gajevy in a corner? We get all the big 4 ships in this color page but all of them except Gajevy get horizontal boxes that show off the ship, Gajevy is pushed into a corner. You think the only one of the 4 pairings to be canon would get bigger panels.

Third, Why is Gildarts and Cana here? This cover is really trying to push romantic love over familial love. But then your big symbolism loses meaning when you go against the grain, because when you look at Chelia and Wendy people are going to say “Well it’s platonic”

Fourth, why are Chelia and Wendy in a pool? I mean it doesn’t even get in any loli fanservice because their swim suits are way more conservative.

Fifth, I know about Elfever because I’m very absorbed into the fandom and put in a lot more effort in caring about than say a more casual viewer. I can only expect that a casual viewer is scratching their head because outside of caeos neither Elfman nor Evergreen have done anything, let alone remind you their in a relationship.

Six, Mirajane and Laxus. Seriously I’ve gone through all of Fairy Tail and this was never pushed as a possibility. You could’ve put in Lyon and Meredy and it make as much sense.

Seven, If your going to include familial love, why aren’t the strauss family together? They have been the pillar of blood relationships in this series for a long time.

Eight, and probably my biggest gripe, WHERE IS ALZACK X BISCA AND REN X SHERRY?! Seriously, you think for a page promoting a lot of love you’d want to include the only married couples in the series. And I understand Ren and Sherry are very minor characters but ALzack and Bisca? They have not only been here for years but also Bisca has done more this arc than Elfman and yet his ship gets a panel. Bullshit.

Okay so actual story time.

So Natsu all fired up with Dragon force faces Zeref. Also that human thing, umm, while I like the plot point you still kinda make it weak with the fact of the poor execution of the human moment.

Oh god. Natsu just blast right through her, no I’m serious Mavis’s plans are never good.

So Zeref has Mavis now. Well, it’s over. No seriously he got what he wanted he doesn’t need to listen to you Mavis.

Mavis says she has a way to “beat’ Zeref but Zeref says it’s useless. Not even END could beat him. Umm Zeref, you and END haven’t fought. Natsu hasn’t released it yet.

Zeref wants to kill Acnologia because he fears how when all humans are gone, immortals like them will become toys for him. Okay, as much shit I throw at this chapter, that is a really interesting idea and does tie together some of the odd dialogue from Zeref in previous chapters. So props.

Oh Gee! It’s almost like walking right into his hands was a bad idea! Seriously, this isn’t a surprise, you gift wrapped his victory.

We cut away to the christina

So Acnologia is still chasing them and it seems he’s maintaining a trail because he can smell Wendy’s dragon scent most likely.

Also *groan* Anna says she can open the gate because she’s a celestial wizard, oh go fuck yourself. I’ve already predicted your obvious end so lets get to it.

Jellal then volunteers himself to buy them some time which is honestly their smartest move. He has the most magic, suffered the least damage and his multi purpose heavenly body magic could be useful.

We cut to Zeref and Mavis

So apparently, Neo Eclipse isn’t a total reset rather it is just one person getting a do-over and can most likely preserve the memories so he can avoid aking that timeline.

I do kinda like this scene as Zeref is doing his contradiction thing but it also lends this idea of almost gray goal rather than a black and white one. Which I like.

And now for a scene I don’t like. This no regrets line feels really odd for a contradiction based character. Like is this definitive thought or this his justification? I just don’t like this scene.

After striking his power up pose Zeref activates Fairy Heart.

Oh my God I really has surpassed god! He got two of the greatest manga power ups of all time. Longer hair and a change of clothes! And as we all know those are signs of a truly god level threat.

(If your looking for more jokes about how Zeref looks please check here)

So post Chapter follow up: Well this chapter was a whole lot of nothing. Like aside from Zeref going god mode nothing really happens. Like it’s even just re-stating stuff we already know, this chapter was kinda padded out.

So pros, I do really like the reason why Zeref fears Acnologia, and I also like any scenes where Zeref can come off as the shades of gray character that he was introduced to us as. It’s also nice neo eclipse only is one reset and not the whole world changing.

Another thing I like is Jellal making the heroic sacrifice, because he’s the only well established side character on Christina doing something!

On the negative side, this chapter is just so stupid. Aside from the issue of nothing but going around in a circle of stating what we already know. But the worst of all is Mavis being a freaking idiot. Again she literally handed him all this god level strength because she’s an idiot. It’s not even a “oh wait she’s blinded by her emotions” moment. It’s a “let me put you in a prime position to take what you started a whole war over.” Since, this is what the chapter revolves around it was just painful.

Final Verdict: 3/10

  • It’s got a few good moments
  • But overall it’s so stupid
  • Just a padded chapter
Focusing on Original Art

I started reflecting a lot for the last couple of months and realising that I’ve been producing much less art than I used to as well as how much of an art block I’ve been stuck in and still pretty much am. There is also the matter of a growing handful of controversies I’ve had the unfortunate experience of dealing with due to political subject matters such as POC or unjustified representation. Don’t get me wrong, I stand by my works firmly and I won’t let the words of SJWs sway me to hinder me from further drawing. But at the same time I think I want to take a step back and start working on original content rather than fanart. 

Fanart has been great for me. It’s always been there as a source of inspiration and a way to also express my love for the show/series/game, but I also feel most of my fandoms are all going through a dry spell when new content is low and nothing exciting is coming out of it at the moment.

I want to start working on my own projects, stories and characters that’ll also give me the freedom from being criticised for incorrect representation. Being able to create my own content allows me to dictate how I want the characters to look without coming under scrutiny because of it. I love constructive criticism and feedback but downright witch hunting me for a political belief does turn me off quite a lot. I think about the controversy of the SW tarot cards how many disagree with my choices and interpretations. I thought to myself, ‘had I drew these with original characters, would it come under the same kind of harsh judgment’? Again, I stand by them. I love my tarots and I’ll never regret doing them, ever. It’s just right now, I think I’d like to breathe and have a little more creative freedom.

That being said, I’m excited to share a project I’ve just started and I hope they’ll become the muses of my artist identity. I do hope that they’ll be around long enough for everyone to distinctly tie these characters to me. I’ll definitely be posting more about it soon!

anonymous asked:

Hi, Do you have any ereri\rireni fic suggestions? or a link to any?

Hello anon! I definitely can recommend you some! Sorry this took a while, I was very busy yesterday.

I went to check the bookmarks on my other browser (I really have to update my new AO3 account already and add all my favorite fics to bookmarks in there, but I always forget to do it, I’m such a mess ;_;) and I’m listing some for you.

You didn’t specify any genre or preferences so there’s a bit of everything in here. All of these are personal favorites of mine, and are very special for me for different reasons, so I hope you like them!


Don’t Speak Against the Sun, by appleapple.
If I had to choose a favorite fic from this author, I probably wouldn’t be able to. Everything they write is spectacular. I’ve always had a preference for canonverse fics, so when I first found their works, it was like christmas came early for me. Still, I’m choosing this story, because it made my chest hurt in all the best ways, and everyone who likes canonverse should read it at least once, you will love it.

Fireside, by twisting_vine_x. [ @twisting-vine-x ]
I always loved this author’s writing style, because it’s the kind that gets you squealing, jumping, covering your face with your hands and making silly sounds at every minimal interaction, and builds anticipation masterfully to the point that gets you trembling with them just as much as holding hands. It has such an effect on me, it’s so embarrassing lol. Fireside is one of my favorites, I love the fact that these two just can’t help falling in love with each other no matter the circumstances, even if they just met and are stuck together in a house in the middle of a snow storm.

A Learned Misbehavior, by sciencefictioness. [ @sciencefictioness ]
One of the best takes at a student/teacher relationship I have ever read. Student/teacher usually isn’t one of my favorite things to read about, I find there’s always something all these kind of stories lack for me, so I don’t really read that many.  But then I found this story and it was like FINALLY, this is exactly what I was looking for all this time. It doesn’t ignore all the complications a relationship like this would have, the struggle in the mind of someone who suddenly feels a strong attraction for someone he shouldn’t, the consequences of acting on their desires. It touches every single thing realistically and that just makes this story even more beautiful, their love more intense, their connection stronger, their commitment even more meaningful. It’s one of my top favorites and I strongly recommend you to read it!

Eight Times the Fun, by ryuusea. [ @ryuusea ]
So, how do you feel about tentacles anon? (´ヮ`) This is definitely one of the best smut fics on this fandom, a must read. It’s very original, hot, and funny (especially the end, oh my god). I do not want to say much more because I don’t want to spoil anything, but trust me, you need to read this asap because it’s amazing!

Leave Your Lover, by SailorHeichou. [ @sailorheichou ]
The way this author uses music, descriptions, and pictures to tell their stories is fantastic. It allows you to get fully immersed in their world, and visualize every single detail, and I love that so much. (I even have a playlist collecting all the songs from their fics and I go back to listen to it sometimes lol). All of their fics are really good but this one has a very special place in my heart. You will daydream about Eren singing for weeks after reading this, trust me!

Lips like Sugar, by TheSpazzBot. [ @fuzzyporcupine ]
I honestly could fill another whole list of faves just with fics from this author (I just can’t help it, I love bottom Levi too much), but I’m choosing this one because it gives me everything I’ve ever wanted, it seriously has every single one of my favorite things I would want to see on a story and combines them together to form my dream fic. Older, rich, and caring sugar daddy Eren, taking care of a younger, inexperienced and adorable Levi, who has a heart of gold, and makes sure that even stray cats get to eat even if he barely can feed himself. And on top of that it’s also so well written, it’s just perfect, I just adore this fic.

Inanimatum Quoddam Sidus, by Miku.
This fic is the one that will make you cry hysterically. It has a major character death warning, but please, trust me and don’t let that discourage you from reading it. I usually avoid sad fics, because I get very emotional very fast. But I gave this story a chance and I am so glad I did. It will break your heart but it will do it so beautifully that you will be fine with it, believe me!

Flight (When None Pursueth), by mongoose_bite. [ @mongoose-bite ]
When days and even weeks since you have read a story have passed, and you still find yourself thinking about it almost everyday, you know it was really good. This happened to me with this story. I read it in one sitting (to be honest I could not stop once I had already started) and I was obsessed with it for weeks. This story touches so many things I wanted to see on a reincarnation fic, especially the repercussions that remembering another life, full of painful memories, could have and how that would affect someone trying to live their new life while dealing with all that.

Fever, by noero. [ @lancefanclub ]
From all the amazing works this author has, I’ve come to dig up the oldest! But I really can’t help it, because I love it a lot and it’s one of my favorites. I have terrible memory, and I’ve read lots of smutty one shots, and I’ve forgotten most of them, but this one caused an impression on me and it comes back to my mind often. What can I say, It’s just really fucking hot. The continuation made it even better so don’t forget checking out that one too!

Eight Months, by elliewritesthings. [ @crying-abt-fictional-people ]
Of course I could not finish this list without mentioning Ellie ♡. Eight Months is such a sweet and heartwarming story. The cutest, most adorable Eren, doing his best to please Levi, loving him so much with such a pure heart. The most gentle Levi, trying to do what’s best for Eren, but wanting him so much at the same time, taking care of him, loving him back with equal intensity. If I ever have a bad day, reading anything by this author always makes me feel better. Her stories are filled with love and happiness, and it definitely reaches you. Please give it a chance I promise you won’t regret it.


Honestly this is only a small part of so many good stories and writers we have on the fandom, we are really lucky we have so much talented people that give us so much. I had to leave many out of this list but the post is already super long and I wanted to keep it at only 10 recs or so. I’ve also added their tumblr urls on the post in case you want to follow them here (except appleapple’s and Miku’s, I don’t know their url or if they have an account here, sorry about that u.u).

Anyways, I hope you enjoy these, anon! Also, with this you gave me an excuse to go back and reread most of these fics again, so thank you for that ♡ .

My Little List of Hannigram Recs

NBC’s Hannibal is possibly my absolute favorite TV series of all time. Bar none. So it follows that my favorite ship of the show, Hannigram has fast become one of my favorite pairings. I love the dynamic between them - the fine line they tread between all out violence, madness and complete devotion is simply beautifully portrayed in the show. It was once explained to me so perfectly: that Hannibal’s driving force is violence rather than sex, so it would make sense that his romantic relationships would focus on violence.

What I love about Hannibal, is that it’s default setting is Dark As Fuck, the show allows its audience to explore morality as what it is - a human construct. When writing fics for Hannibal we are free to discover the beauty in murder, the fragile line between madness and love, hate and devotion.

So be ye warned, in these fics the monsters win and you will cheer them of every step of the way.

UPDATE: 9th October 2015

EVERYBODY TAKE A DEEP BREATH….. HOLD…. now slowly release. OK, after the 1000% CANNON HANNIGRAM FINALE I have understandably been scouring ao3 (my usual hunting ground) for post-finale fics. I found some good stuff, not all post s3 but mostly murder husbands (BECAUSE CANNON)

Rogue One: Second Viewing

- link to my other Rogue One blabberings -

Watched Rogue One for the second time today on the big screen.  Here are some more thoughts since I’m not inundated by “HOLY SHIT” feelings from experiencing it the first time. There may be some repeat thoughts.

NB, as usual: have only seen the movie and read a small portion of its prequel Catalyst so far. I try to talk about individual characters themselves, but shipping thoughts concerning RebelCaptain (Jyn/Cassian) and SpiritAssassin (Chirrut/Baze) still occur.

Warning: THIS IS REALLY, REALLY LONG. Not exaggerating in any way.

  • Quick General Thoughts 
    • I’d seen the movie a little more than a month ago and have swamped myself in fandom, so I thought I wouldn’t have Extreme Emotions from seeing it again. I even thought I’d be bored for some bits.
      • I was wrong.
    • It’s a beautiful movie, and I honestly liked every single performance by the actors and actresses. I thought they were all really good or amazing.
    • By far one of the most intense movies that I’ve seen in general, not just the Star Wars ‘verse.
  • Lah’mu
    • There’s a piece of symbolism in some Rogue One book material that talks about how the movie bookends the theme of “Jyn” and “home.” AKA: Jyn starts the movie by having a home, and Jyn ends the movie by rediscovering home. Figuratively, this is shown by Lah’mu with her parents (start) and the Scarif beach with Cassian (end) (or you could argue the entire Rogue One team becoming family, a la Baze’s “little sister”, as “home”).
      • However, now I can see there’s also a literal interpretation of this: Jyn’s Lah’mu home is next to a beach. And you remember where she dies? A BEACH.
    • If one of the Stormtroopers was taught even a little bit of forensic science, Jyn would have absolutely been found underneath that damn rock. They live on rich, loamy soil. Anyone heard of footprints or tracks? I guess Death Troopers are too busy learning how to kill people.

Future predictions/Jashi/ending

Well, we’ve come down to the final five and I still say they should’ve made it 13 episodes like the previous seasons but who knows maybe gendy thought it was enough.
Anyway It’s been a friggin’ blast so far, there hasn’t been a dull episode at all. Seeing jacks character going through this drastic chance since we last saw him in the fourth season 12 years ago, he want from hopeful and determined to lost and broken.
So the point of this post is to make predictions on what’s going to happen in the remaining 5 episodes.

Future predictions

Well from what I pretty much guessed since the third episode, I had a hunch that for the final episode there was going to be an all out war between all the people Jack has saved and aku. And seeing the newest episode pretty much confirmed it, when the Scotsman said “we’ll raise up a bigger army” and he’ll find jack. This leads me to believe that he intends Jack to lead them in the revolution to take earth back from aku, honestly it makes sense that it would go down this route. Also seeing the preview for this upcoming episode (6) we see that the woollies have made a return saying “we won’t allow you to hurt the samurai”…here’s a thought what if they’ve been planning this for years all the people that jack has saved and waiting for the right moment to come together and fight (plays godsmacks cover of come together)
My prediction is by end of episode eight we will see it all come together. Like Imagine the Scotsman appearing at the end of the episode saying “Jack you need to come with us laddy” and there’s a whole massive camp of all the people Jack’s saved. He’s like “we’re going war and we need a leader” and episode 9 I would think would mostly be about Jack preparing everybody. I see Jack, ashi and The Scotsman taking lead. Pure bad assness 🤘🏻
Another prediction I have comes from the preview of the upcoming episode. When the woollies say “are you sure she was the one ? Aku’s bounty hunter ?”
Now, this could be a stretch but what if… One of Ashi’s sisters survived the fall off the cliff at the end of episode 3. My guess is the one with the spear, because she was simply thrown off…not like the other one who got punched so hard that her neck literally snapped. What if the sister with the spear survived and continued her hunt looking for jack ? And made a name for herself.
I mean why else with the woollies mistaken ashi for this so called “aku’s bounty hunter” if she didn’t look similar to them. Which in reality all of the sisters were similar in appearance except for their hair styles.
So what if, near the end of the season she makes an appearance and Jack and Ashi have to fight her. I think that would be pretty cool actually.

Jashi

Now with the way the episodes of been going so far and with the new preview we know it’s coming. It’s just a matter of how fast it’ll progress. I’ve mentioned it in a recent post how the last shot of the preview of her looking up with the rhinestone eyes makes it look more like “she’s developing romantic feelings for him” eyes, not “I need to find my friend” “that’s my dad” eyes. Now that being said I don’t put down the people on Tumblr that see them more as a father/daughter or mentor/Student team but this is just what I see. people also can say that it’s unproven information but it’s the vibe that I feel and I simply see it more as a romantic thing then anything else and given the clues and foreshadowing that we have gotten in the previous episodes….you can see why some of us jashi fans are optimistic about it. There has also been the whole yin and Yang observation going around about how they’re both very similar but very different and can balance each other out. Which honestly makes a whole lot of sense, ashi was raised in the darkness but was brought into the light, while Jack bathed in the light and has descended into darkness, which by the next episode she will definitely save him before he does something he’ll regret and this just proves to me that they are meant for each other.
Anyway I feel like a broken record repeating the same things I’ve said in previous posts and I know there are other tumblers that go into far more detail than I do lol but yeah I’m still going to stand by my prediction and say by the end of episode seven they’re going to kiss, I’m calling it 👍🏻

Ending

Well as I’ve said there’s going to be a war between the innocent inhabitants of earth versus Aku and his minions. It’s going to be an epic battle to the finish there will probably be casualties as well. I see the Scotsman taking charge of everyone while Jack and ashi go on ahead to face Aku, I also see the high priestess confronting them with aku and it’ll probably end up being A two on two battle MAYBE (just a prediction) anyway if all of you have seen that one spoiler video that was posted of the “ending” of the series by @burstangelmay
It shows the voice actor of jack and the voice actresses of Ashi and the high priestess in the recording room, showing what looks to be a scene from the final episode. There was a description underneath the video saying during the battle ashi dies, YES I know I’m upset too but there’s more to that. It also says it gives Jack the strength and power to slay Aku for good. Now what I imagine it would happen is that all of the minions and robots that are powered by a Aku would immediately disappear, because if their master is no longer around why should they be right ? I’d imagine after they find out Jack has won and Ashi was killed in battle, we get a pretty emotional scene of her funeral. Then it cuts to a few years later and Jack (who has become king) has come back to the portal that the guardian was keeping safe. I imagine there is a intense fight between the two but Jack ultimately overpowers him and beats him, making him worthy to use the portal and instead of actually going back to his own time
he goes back to that moment before ashi is killed, destroys aku and saves her life. Because of the change in time future jack begins to fade from existence now, because the whole reason of them going back in time was to save ashi and now that she’s alive jack has no reason to use the portal now because he can spend the rest of his life with Ashi happy and they can BOTH rebuild the future together. Gendy did say the ending would “have people bawling” and it makes total sense that this would be the ending. Now I have NO IDEA if the leak was real or not but I’m honestly leaning towards real because it seems like a possible ending and I would be totally satisfied with it. Because jack needs a goddamn happy ending, not a depressing or bittersweet ending…happy ! 😌

I really don’t want this show to end but it would be nice for gendy’s next project they can make a continuation show just called “jack and ashi” and it follows them a few years later. Now I’m not a HUGE fan of next generation type things because it’s super cliché but they have a daughter, The whole series would be jack in Ashi going throughout the world purging the remaining of Aku’s evil. What evil you say ? well his robot in minions may be gone but not the people who worshipped him. What if the cult of aku that raised ashi was still around in hiding preparing a resurgence. Yeah this is a stretch but what if the cult does some necromancer shit and brings back the rest of Ashi’s sisters (assuming they kill the one sister I mentioned) and uses them to kidnap Jack and ashi’s child. That alone is enough motivation to make maybe one or two seasons. You’re probably thinking why would they kidnap of their daughter well what if they needed another child to make seven members of The daughters of Aku again and sacrifice them too resurrect aku. Obviously it wouldn’t be as simple as that because they would have to try and brainwash Jack and ashi’s daughter and they couldn’t use Ashi herself because the evil has been purged from her and is now righteous. Anyway ! I’ve gone on long enough lol

I have no idea who else is going to read this but if you have any predictions and speculations of what will happen or if you agree with me with what I said then talk away cause I’m open to hearing what everyone has to say 😋👍🏻

If after 4 seasons they decide that Red is Liz's father don't you think that just about makes the entire show pointless? People are already constantly trying to kill her. He could have told her he was her father and I don't think she would have been in much more danger plus she might have been more willing to listen to him without the anger at all the secrets. Being Dad would be the biggest letdown ever. What do you think?

Anon in all honesty I don’t believe I’ll ever reach the point where I think the show is pointless whether a retcon regarding bio dad happens or not. The Blacklist is not pointless. It’s mismanaged and has become corrupted from within and is incredibly flawed. But It also stars James Spader. It Still has really great characters and wonderful moments. That right there is worth my time. If tptb remain true to canon and Red is revealed to not be Lizzy’s biological father then I hope the showrunners will view s5 as a new beginning and take the show in another direction. Anything is better than the s4 catastrophe.

On the flip side if the retcon happens I still won’t regret watching the show, shipping Lizzington, writing fic etc. The ship was there and we shipped it simple as that. TBL may indeed be a series of missed opportunities…well it is definitely that and it will never be what it could have been, but Spader will always be worth watching. Red will always be intriguing. Dembe will always be wise. Lizzy will always be frustrating and I’ll always hope s1 Liz reappears. The post office gang will always be there and they matter too. It’s not pointless no matter what happens just incredibly frustrating because it could be so much more. If they retcon the relationship it will be a Lie. That’s the word to use imo. Tptb will know it’s a lie which they will never admit to I’m sure but we’ll know it as well. At that point I’ll be hoping s5 is the last so Spader can move on to bigger and better things hopefully off network. I have a bad feeling but I’m hoping just this once tptb use some common sense and remain true to what has been portrayed on screen and what they’ve communicated off. We shall see. Cheers and hang in there. We’ll know in a few days.

white person: maybe morrison earned his promotion to strike commander of overwatch through his own merit and skills, and racism/colorism towards reyes had nothing to do with it ? maybe stop making it a race thing ?

me, in my head: While I have no doubt Jack possessed the abilities needed in order to be a capable and effective leader, you cannot look me in the eye and tell me that Gabriel did not. Reyes successfully lead everyone during the Omnic Crisis – a war – and that takes a tremendous amount of ability.

If both men were equally capable leaders, then what reasons could the UN possibly have to choose one over the other? I can’t think of many. Age? They’re both around the same age. Gender? They’re both men. Race…? That’s where things get interesting.

Overwatch was a global organization and it needed a poster boy. An icon. A figurehead to admire. Someone who everyone can look up to and see themselves in, even in the smallest of ways. And the UN chose Jack, a blond farm boy from Indiana, as opposed to Gabriel, a Mexican American who grew up in LA. Weird, huh?

It’s no secret that many modern movies, TV shows, and video games tend to have white male protagonists, and it’s usually for one reason: relateability. They want their works to be ‘relateable to a wider audience’ so they make the protagonists white, which is problematic because it implies that whiteness is the norm and that brownness/blackness is something different. It dehumanizes poc. When the UN chose Jack in the hopes of making Overwatch more relateable to humanity, they were implying that Gabriel was somehow less relateable on the basis of his race. Which is fucking racist.

So yeah, Morrison may have earned the position with his abilties but racism definitely had a role to play in it because racism has a role to play in literally everything. Bye.

me, out loud: no fuck you puta
