i will miss you so much this season :(

do you guys remember those two updates in season three, which both dropped in the same weekend, at 21:21 exactly, and then everyone was like, oooh my gosh, we’re going to have to be ready at 21:21 everyday because there’s a pattern, important things are going to happen at that time, only for nothing to ever drop at 21:21 again.

Since you like Steven Universe..what are your thoughts on Lars' "character developement".

Your use of quotation marks here tells me that you certainly have some thoughts about it, Anon!

Personally, though, I’m a bit out of the loop with Steven at the moment—I saw the last Bomb but missed a few episodes at the end of Season Four—so someone else could probably speak about Lars and his character much more thoroughly than I could!

But generally? I’m enjoying the direction the show is taking here.

In a lot of ways, Lars has always been such a real, human character. He’s insecure, he’s scared, he wants everyone to love him and tries so hard to be liked, but ultimately, all his attempts to be adored just make him all the more unlikeable. By covering up his true emotions and passions with a jerkish, “I-couldn’t-care-less” attitude—because feelings are embarrassing and shameful!—Lars comes off as a fake, try-hard, who-would-want-to-be-around-him prick.

As Lars’s actual personality behind his “please-love-me” guise didn’t get a lot of time to shine outside of this last Bomb, though, his very human and relatable motivations were easily overshadowed by his bad attitude, and, well, it’s no wonder that Lars garnered a reputation among fans as one of the worst characters in the entire cast (a position he shared with Ronaldo). Even worse, every time a viewer did get a little glimmer of the “real” Lars—as in “Island Adventure,” for instance, where he cried and was so honest with Sadie—he would quickly fall back into pretending again, leaving audiences understandably annoyed with him. Is this guy ever gonna learn a lesson and change, or is he going to forever be “the jerk of Steven Universe”?

I admit, I definitely was thinking the latter! I never expected much of anything to come out of Lars’s character, so color me pleasantly surprised when Lars’s position as Steven’s only friend left with him on his journey to Homeworld wasn’t just an excuse for tired comedy about how jerkish Lars is and how kind Steven is, but actually a way to finally, finally delve into Lars’s character!

I honestly loved how Lars acted in “Stuck Together.” He was obnoxious, yes, but he was admittedly so. Lars wasn’t really trying to save himself and Steven and he knew he wasn’t, and I found his confession about all his shortcomings and how he’s always afraid to be so, so, so good. Lars wants so desperately to be someone he’s not to gain approval, but he got my approval when he just acted like himself.

There have been complaints that what happened with Lars was too quick, or completely out of left field, or that he turned into an entirely different character. But I disagree. The Lars seen in the last Bomb has always been there—and the show has always had little pieces of it, as in the aforementioned “Island Adventure”! What the last Bomb did was nudge Lars a little further and take those pieces to a great conclusion: Lars spills everything to Steven, and with positive reinforcement from a kid he does admire, he takes steps to stop pretending, to stop running, and to make a change. 

But also? It just makes me happy to see other people happy and excited about something legitimately nice and unoffensive like this. The way Lars went from one of the most-hated elements of Steven Universe to one of the most favored has been really sweet to me.

I wonder if there’s ever going to be a similar treatment for Ronaldo…

Ok so my friend asked her question, but what about Raph/Don? They are my ultimate OTP.

The ONLY thing that doesn’t put it higher on my list is the lack of content for it in the 2012 series. It seems they have more moments in season 5, so when I see it maybe my tune will change. We’ll see.

That all said, the appeal is absolutely there. If you want an ‘opposites attract’ pairing then this is one of the strongest cases for one in the franchise. Donnie is 100% cerebral. He overthinks things so much that he often misses small details, and it leaves him dense to the feelings of those around him (relatable). Meanwhile Raph is nothing but feelings, to a point where emotions will cloud his judgement and he’ll make a thousand horrible mistakes. I joke that everything Raph loves gets destroyed and it’s true, usually by his own doing.

This can leave them both blind to the feelings of others, but with time Raph has learned to better pick up on the feelings of others, maybe especially people’s feelings for one another. So if anything Donnie’s still the one mostly ignorant of the feelings of those around him. This leads to an interesting dynamic where, in a relationship, Donnie is the mind and Raph is the heart. This could lead to a lot of clashing, but just as much as that’s true, it’s also true that they could easily complete one another if things went right.

Plus in my own mind, near the end of season four they essentially became the new A- team. They’re still more hindered by their shortcomings than their brothers, and I thought that in and of itself could lead to some interesting bonding if the show would let it. Doubt it would, but I’m saying it could have.

I think it’s a great ship. I just wish the current series played on their dynamic more than in passing here and there.

Michaela Pratt, a known badass [requested by anon]

imagine lotor shows up to fight team voltron all serious and menacing but team voltron just annoys the fuck out of him. 

lotor’s trying to give a Villainous Monologue and pidge just interrupts him and says “listen prince, uhhhh, lotion, i forgot, man- i haven’t gotten much sleep lately, but can you like explain to me how you got your hair to look like that??? space conditioner exists?? w ha t” 

everyone on the team is kind of shocked but they remember that All of Them haven’t gotten Any Sleep since shiro went missing so they just roll with it

so every time lotor shows up, they just ask him a ton of questions, butcher his name, and tell him to “give us our boy shiro back, lego”

[TRANS] SPRING DAY - BTS

Miss you
saying this makes me miss you more
i miss you even though im looking at your photo
time is so cruel, i hate us
seeing each other for once is so hard between us

it’s all winter here even in August
my heart is running on the time alone on the snowpiercer
i wanna get to the other side of the earth holding your hand 
wanna put an end to this winter
how much longing should we see snowing down to have the days of spring, friend

like the tiny dust like tiny dust floating in the air
will i get to you a little faster if i was the snow in the air 

snowflakes fall and get away little by little
i miss you i miss you
how long do i have to wait
and how many sleepless nights do i have to spend
to see you to meet you 

passing by the edge of the cold winter
until the days of the spring 
until the flowers blossom
please stay, please stay there a little longer

is it you who changed or is it me?
i hate this moment that this time flows
we are changing you know, just like everyone you know 
yes i hate you, you left me 
but i never stopped thinking about you, not even a day
honestly i miss you but ill erase you
cuz it hurts less than to blame you

i try to exhale you in pain like smoke, like white smoke
i say that ill erase you but i cant really let you go yet

snowflakes fall and get away little by little
i miss you i miss you
how long do i have to wait
and how many sleepless nights do i have to spend
to see you to meet you

you know it all, youre ma best friend
the morning will come again 
no darkness, no season can last forever

maybe its cherry blossoms and this winter will be over 
i miss you i miss you 
wait a little bit, just a few more nights
ill be there to see you, ill come for you 

passing by the edge of the cold winter
until the days of the spring
until the flowers blossom
please stay, please stay there a little longer

College Life 101

Alrighty folks, here are some nifty tips on how I survived (and could have better survived) college: 

  • As soon as you have your schedule, email your professors. Everyone. Especially if you have questions about the course, if you’re going to miss, etc. also make sure you do it from your school email, many professors will not check an email if it isn’t from a school address. 
  • On move in day, bring a door stop.  moving in is so much easier when you don’t need someone to hold the door for everything. 
  • Shoe racks and command strips/hooks will be your best friend. Use the racks for misc. things like utensils, seasonings, Keurig mixes, hot chocolate, etc. 
  • Bring a whiteboard/corkboard. Write down your classes and anything you need to get done for those classes and make sure that you keep it updated. On the cork side post up papers with important numbers, a map of campus, and other things you get. 
  • SIGN UP FOR ACTIVITIES (ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE ON A SMALL CAMPUS) otherwise you’re not going to have a fun experience. Even if it’s just something you THINK you may have a slight interest in, try it! 
  • Go to one or two sporting events, just for the hell of it
  • Put important dates in your phone calendar or even a planner. Somewhere you will be reminded of them. Times and dates are critical. 
  • Eat. and eat well. 
  • Use chegg, upper classmen, or other resources for textbooks before you buy them. Campus bookstores are astronomically expensive and it can be a lot cheaper going somewhere else. I use Chegg and they also send you free tide pods, coffee samples, etc. 
  • Bring medicine that you’ve used in the last two years, even if you haven’t used it in a while just to be safe. 
  • If you’re gonna do laundry on the weekends Friday and Saturday nights OR Sunday mornings are prime time. Be prepared for staying up late or getting up early to do laundry 
  • PUT. A TIMER. ON. YOUR. LAUNDRY. Seriously, when you have to share a laundry room there is nothing more annoying than someone who won’t move their laundry out for other people. 
  • On a related note DO NOT THROW OTHER PEOPLE’S LAUNDRY ON THE FLOOR. Fold it up, leave it on the dryers or w/e with a little note. Don’t be an asshole. 
  • Keep extra pads and tampons around everywhere you go. Help yourself and/or ya menstruating friends out. 
  • Bring a phone/laptop charger with you throughout the day. I know I personally have some long breaks between my classes where I do homework and w/e
  • Use Google docs for your assignments, or other programs that back up your work to the cloud. My laptop broke halfway through the semester and the only thing that saved me was Google Docs because my school uses gmail
  • Download Groupme. Right now. Do it. It’s a great way to create group chats, keep them in one place, and keep them backed up somewhere, you’re gonna have some for group projects, your dorm, any programs, etc. 
  • Bring a three hole punch, scissors, glue, tape, notecards, and binders. Also get pocketed folders for any important research papers you may need to turn in. 
  • ALSO DRY ERASE MARKERS ARE A LIFE SAVER. bring them around for studying in empty classrooms it’s v helpful
  • COLOR CODE YOUR BINDERS/NOTE BOOKS/STICKY NOTES. Your binder for one class and all its accessories should be one colors. Color organize your notes. (If you’re colorblind, use patterns or something simple for you.) 
  • Try typing up your notes after classes, save them to your laptop and whatever online thing you use. Sometimes you’ll need your notes and you either won’t have your notebook, laptop, or both and it can be very important to keep your notes accessible. 
  • Make use of tutoring services or other students/friends that are good in your classes. C’s get degrees and if people can help you understand it better then WOO
  • Try not to miss too many classes, but if you do make sure you contact your professors about it (or someone in that class.) 
  • Sleep is v important, but can also be too good so set alarms at least a half hour before your classes to get ready and go. 

Take deep breaths. Make friends. Take no shit, do no harm

LOCAL WHITE BOY RUNS OFF WITH MY HEART???

Okay I thought of something and it made me emo so I wanted to share it with you guys too so we can be emo together (that’s what skamily is for) 

You remember this? (well of course you do) 

well this clip just made me realise that this, everything Even is telling Isak that will happen isn’t just something that he thinks will happen because he is depressed. He believes it, because it’s happened before. It has happened with his friends whom he loved so much. 

We don’t know what happened but it is something so bad that not only hurt balloon squad but made Even think they hate him, made Even hate himself and that’s why he was so sure he would always be alone before Isak. Why he thought all he did was ruin things. Because he has before. He has lost everything before. and now it’s threatening to come back and haunt him and he is flipping terrified that whatever he did that was so bad to lose all the people he loves and trust, will take away the one person he loves and trusts now.


This clip broke my heart, because this face? it reminds me of the clip above. All the shame, self-hate, resentment at whatever led to him losing his friends. This face shows just how much he still truly believes that he hurt all his friends enough for them to hate him. He believes it so much that he continues to hate himself for everything he can’t change. He is so ashamed, so terrified of everything that went down with bakka and his closest friends to come back and destroy everything he has built between him and that incident. ugh it’s just. I feel like this clip and this entire storyline is so damn important because it’s proving that everything we saw with Even at the end of s3 hasn’t gone away just because Isak loves him. 

His self hate? the pain, this belief that he doesn’t deserve anyone because he just hurts them and ruins everything? ah god it’s still there and it always will be until he faces everything that created it. And so the bakka storyline is coming up to maybe hopefully push Even in the right direction of healing and finally self love and acceptance because that is what skam is about. 

dealing with everything you are ashamed of about yourself and finding love and acceptance within yourself. For Even that is no longer being ashamed of his past and his illness but accepting that it is a part of him and his story and he is even more strong, beautiful and compassionate because of it. He shouldn’t hate himself for things out of his control, and he shouldn’t be terrified of losing people he loves because of it. He is kind, smart, beautiful, and loved. his illness doesn’t define him. This is everything I wanted from an Even season, and just maybe we’re gonna get it. 

just maybe we’re gonna get to watch someone teach us how to love and accept ourselves again. 

I hope so

Also the fact that he asked about the boys made me want to cry because he so clearly misses them so much and he said it in such a,….sad way? I just I can’t. 

Especially when the boys reaction to Even’s name was this

I just… I want to protect my baby and take away his pain and worries. He still thinks that he is capable of hurting and losing Isak and I truly feel like those feelings are connected to the Balloon squad, who are connected to Sana who is our beautiful main. And that is how we are going to get Even’s self acceptance story after all. 

I’m sorry I told you this was emo.
