i would tag everyone but it won't show up anyways so

anonymous asked:

sometimes i think about what could have made me like sc*tt. like. s1&s2 sc*tt definitely had his faults- esp. wrt his treatment of derek- but i think he definitely could have developed as a person from there and had a rly interesting character arc? like real personal growth and shit. it gets harder after master plan. is there a way that episode could have gone down the way it did and still made him a likable character after that? is there any apology he could give that would suffice?

cont. - like im not sure of the answer, but id love to see someone manage it. i don’t know if ive ever come across a fic that manages to redeem him from that moment while still acknowledging it. most fics either dont forgive him for it or they just sort of ignore it. for me tho, i think the real breaking point for sc*tt is the true alpha storyline. after that i don’t think there was anything they could have done for him to make him an interesting or likeable character. that storyline ruined it.

I think one of the biggest places where people take issue with Scott –– and this doesn’t mean they hate him or he’s a horrible human being (although some people feel that way too, and are entitled to it), but where many people see Scott falling short as a character is in that the show seems to have decided that “main character” or “hero” should mean perfect, and that’s just… that’s not good for character development, for plot building, or honestly, for a character’s likability.

Characters need to grow to be engaging. And people grow by making mistakes, learning from them, and moving forward. Scott’s mistakes, his flaws as a human being (and yes, he has flaws, everyone does, that’s not character assassination, that’s just fact) are really never addressed. He isn’t made to apologize for the things he does wrong (and why should he, honestly, since no one around him recognizes his problematic behaviors and calls him out on them) or face any apparent payment for them. This compared to the rest of the characters in the series, who are called out on their mistakes –– either by other characters or by consequences in canon. I always use Derek as a comparison, because there are a lot of straightforward parallels, such as the key moments with Isaac. Derek throws a glass at Isaac to get him to leave the loft. We know that’s an absolutely shitty thing to do, it reads immediately on both Isaac and Derek’s faces, and as consequence Derek loses Isaac as a pack member. That’s some hardcore, immediate reaction showing people in the scene and in the audience that This Was Not An Ok Thing To Do. The fact that Derek knew it wasn’t ok as he was doing it, and that he did it on purpose to get Isaac to leave for his own safety, does not make the behavior alright, and Derek acknowledges and pays for that behavior in the permanent loss of Isaac as a housemate and pack member.

When Scott, a short time later, throws Isaac into a wall in a moment of jealousy, it should, on the surface, seem to strike a fairly close parallel. We have Isaac’s Alpha, someone in a position of power over him, physically lashing out at him in some way. But in this instance, neither Scott nor Isaac react much to it, Isaac continues to go on living in Scott’s house and remaining a member of his pack, and there is just… no real follow up to that moment. And while I understand how that can lead some viewers to dismiss the moments as not being parallel (Isaac wasn’t upset there, so clearly Scott’s behavior is acceptable), what I and many viewers are instead left with is the message that Derek lashing out is unexpected and unacceptable, Scott lashing out is expected and acceptable, and that makes him… more heroic?

In season five I believe there finally was a moment between Stiles and Scott where Scott seemed to be being called out on his behavior, but even that came off as very “I’m flawed and you can’t understand that because you’re perfect,” which is… it’s how Scott sees himself, and it’s how the writers seem to see him, but A) that fails to acknowledge the ways in which he is flawed –– meaning that he can’t learn from and improve upon those flaws –– and B) makes for an incredibly un-engaging character. How can we identify with perfection? How can we root for perfection? And how can we fully get on board with someone we are told is perfect, when we can look at them and point out a dozen instances where they weren’t?

This is my major issue with Scott’s character. That we are told he is perfect when we see he isn’t, that he has a double standard of being excused from all of his bad behaviors when the characters around him aren’t, and I do think this connects very much to the True Alpha problem (I got another ask about my thoughts on that so I’ll answer that in more detail separately), because it’s just another level of saying “Scott is a better man, werewolf, and person in general than everyone else.”

Ok, now after all of that, how do I think Scott could have been improved and made more likable for many critical viewers? To be honest, for me it would have been really simple. Include moments where he apologizes for things. That’s… really, honestly, all I would have needed. Because like I said, I’m not looking for perfect characters. Scott acknowledging that he screwed up now and again would make me ecstatic because it would mean that he’s learning and growing and is trying to become better, and that makes for an amazing character arc in any show. If Scott had done the exact same thing in “Master Plan,” except when Derek asked why Scott didn’t tell him Scott had said “I’m sorry… I was afraid if I told anyone then Gerard would find out my plan. And I couldn’t risk that, my mom was in danger” then bam. I would have had a complete turnaround on my attitude toward him in that moment. He would have been humanized, we would have seen that he was in a tough situation, and he would have become more sympathetic by sympathizing with the shitty thing he’d done to Derek. Honestly, that simple.

Q&A with Simon D
  • Simon and you have been together for nearly 5 years and Simon has decided to do a short Q&A video with you. Simon has already tweeted out to his fans about the questions.
  • Simon: Hey everyone. Today [Y/N] and I will be answering questions from our fans.
  • You: What's the first question?
  • Simon: Someone's excited for this.
  • You: I only agreed to this because you promise you will let me choose what we eat tonight.
  • Simon: Shh I don't want our fans to know I bribed you into this. Ok, first question is where did you two go on your first date? Do you remember, babe?
  • You: Of course. But you always telling this story so you do it.
  • Simon: I asked her to dinner at my favourite restaurant, but after dinner I found out she doesn't like the place. [Y/N] asked me what I had plan next, I told her I was planning to go to the movies. She disagreed and we went to a bowling place after.
  • You: Dinner and a movie is boring babe. Sorry. But you had fun at the bowling place right?
  • Simon: Yeah it was fun. Here, read the next question.
  • You: What are your thoughts the first time meeting each other?
  • Simon: We actually met a club. It was an after party for some show. I was sitting in the VIP section and I saw her dancing from across the room. I thought wow that girl CANNOT dance.
  • You: Hey!
  • Simon: I'm just joking. But yeah, my first thought was wow she is so sexy so I got up and asked for her name.
  • You: Yeah, I remember seeing this guy who's wearing a grey GUCCI sweatshirt walking up to me and I thought, who in their right mind wears a sweatshirt to a club. Like it's so hot and stuffy in there. Then my second thought was he probably smells because I could see his sweat.
  • Simon: And do I smell?
  • You: Sometimes.
  • Simon: So [Y/N] what is the most romantic thing that I have done?
  • You: Hmm, for our one year anniversary we celebrated it at home. I had a long day at work and I told him I was fine with some take-out but this guy here surprised me. He made dinner, put rose petals on the bed and candles were everywhere.
  • Simon: I have many romantic things and you choose that one?
  • You: Yeah but I think that's the most romantic. Next question.
  • Simon: What are each other’s worst or annoying habits? [Y/N]'s most annoying habit is buying so many clothes and not wearing them. Some clothes in her closet still has tags on them. And when we go out she says she doesn't have anything to wear so I tell her to wear the clothes she bought a month ago. And when we are ready to go out, I would think she's wearing the new clothes but she wears her old clothes. Her clothes are taking up my side of the closet.
  • You: Whatever. You should buy another closet for yourself then. And don't forget you sometimes kick the blanket off the bed when we're sleeping. I'm always getting up and picking the blanket up. Learn how to keep the blanket ON the bed and I'll try to stop buying so much clothes.
  • Simon: Okay okay, I'll try. So the next question is what is your ideal date night?
  • You: I don't think we do a lot of date nights, right babe?
  • Simon: No, we don't. We prefer having lunch together.
  • You: Yeah, lunches, breakfast or brunches. We prefer spending the day together. But also, Simon sleeps super early. He gets into bed around 8:30pm. What old men do.
  • Simon: Hey! I'm not old.
  • You: Whatever you want to believe. Hmm the next question from this fan is a little out of the blue.
  • Simon: What is it?
  • You: Are there any weird fantasies/kinks that you have or into?
  • Simon: Weird fantasies or kinks? We don't have weird kinks.
  • You: Omg Simon. You just implied we have weird fantasies. I don't want to answer this one. I'm going to get a drink.
  • Simon: No, no sit down. You're staying right here babe.
  • You: I'm just going to cover my face then.
  • Simon: I won't go into too much detail or give our fans too much information. Actually I'll just say it in three words. Ready? Ok, toys and accessories.
  • You: Omg you did not just say accessories. What is that suppose to mean?
  • Simon: I told you, I'm not saying anything more. And baby, you should know what the accessories are..
  • You: Let's move on.
  • Simon: Okay last question, do you two have any funny, embarrassing sex stories? Wow our fans are something hey?
  • You: Haha yeah. I know one embarrassing story. Can I tell it?
  • Simon: Are you talking about the one with the phone call?
  • You: YES! Ok so we were at home and in the middle of 'it' , well actually we were both 'nearly there', when Simon's phone rings. The phone was on the bedside table and I asked Simon if he needed to get that. He shook his head and all that came out of his mouth was "Jay, Jay, Jay". Now imagine, you and your partner having the time of your life, you know, and your partner decides to call out his work mate's name when you're about close. It was so weird, yet extremely funny. Oh and if you didn't guess, the person who called him was Jay.
  • Simon: Please stop talking now and I'm surprised you could actually ask me a question when you're in the zone babe. Kudos.
  • You: I didn't say the exact words. I muttered, gosh. Anyway can I tell them what I told Jay the next day.
  • Simon: Aww, do you have too?
  • You: Yes. The fans deserves the whole story. So the next day, we saw Jay at the office and I blurted out what happened. I said to Jay, "my boyfriend busted a nut to you".
  • Simon: Okay okay. No more discussing this story and let's end this Q&A. You've gone too far babe.
  • You: Fine. And we're having ramen and dumplings tonight.

I’m getting a lot of comments and tags in reblogs of the “Hannibal & the Rights Issue” post with people being concerned that MGM or Starz or whoever is going to ruin Hannigram or make the show stick closer to the canon or turn everything super heterosexual or some such. 

Guys, do NOT worry about that. It’s literally ZERO issue. It’s Martha’s show, and she and Hugh and Mads and everybody all say that it coming back is contingent 100% on Bryan being at the helm, and Bryan’s not going to give up creative control at that level. They’ll work it in to their contracts in some way, or Bryan won’t do it, even if it means getting fired. Remember, he’s the guy who got fired from his very first show over such an issue, and got his second show buried on a network over it again. All the fan base and critical acclaim is built on Bryan’s vision. It’s either Bryan’s way or the highway. DLC has a very specific, already developed product they’re selling, not a concept, and Bryan has already conceived seasons to pitch (up to a sixth, yay!), and if they don’t want the story that he’s selling, they won’t buy it.  If everyone isn’t comfortable with that, the deal won’t happen at all. 

That isn’t to say there might not be some influence or compromise in various aspects of making the show, or that Bryan is destined to make Hannigram sexual after all this time (I still would be surprised if he does), or whatever. It just means that the story of the series is the story of Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter, and that is not going to change, unless Bryan was going to change it anyway (and he’s not, because it’s his baby). 

There’s no controlling the deal from our side, and we need to recognize and accept that. We have to let the grownups handle that, so to speak, and it’s not our job to limit the options available to the creatives, but to expand them, so that they have the fullest and best opportunity to get the show they want created, with as much demand as possible to market it. 

Beggars can’t be choosers, y’all. Let Bryan and Martha handle the business end. They know what they’re doing. 

- a soft yawn parted from the princess’s lips. she shook her head as she dragged her suitcase up the stairs, completely taken in by the surroundings around her. it was so much different to home, and after everything she had gone through, she really hoped this would be a more permanent place. she took a sip of her coffee as her sapphire eyes wandered her new home, completely unaware of the person she was about to step into. it only took a moment to realise she had split her boiling hot coffee over the other, and almost shrieked from shock. oh my gosh! i am so sorry! she said, digging around in her hand bag for a tissue for the other. can i buy you a new shirt or compensate you somehow? she asked shyly.

I know this is usually an ask thing, but I couldn’t resist just scrolling by, I suddenly had a whole bunch of head canons that popped into my head while reading these so I decided to fill them out and share! 

OTP Questionnaire; Oliver (Shibuya Kazuya, Noll, Naru) Davis and Mai Taniyama 

  1. Favorite non-sexual activity?: Honestly, Ghost hunting. I think they both get a strange pleasure out of a good case that needs to be solved.
  2. Who uses up all the hot water?: Naru; He likes long showers, while Mai prefers baths.
  3. Most Trivial thing the fight over: Naru’s manners, or lack there of.
  4. Who does most of the cleaning?: Mai, of course. Naru likes to remind her constantly that is what he hired her for even when they’re at home. Although, Mai doesn’t mind too much. She usually likes to do the cleaning, anyways.
  5. Who controls the Netflix queue?:  Naru doesn’t watch TV. It’s only when Yasu comes over to have scary movie marathon with Mai does he even pretend to be interested in television. So, I’m going to say Mai.
  6. Who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working?: Lin; Naru would say he would do it, then pass the job off to Lin who doesn’t even live with them.
  7.  Who steals the blankets?: Mai. Naru complains sleeping beside Mai is like sleeping beside a tornado: Always tossing and turning and talking in her sleep, it’s a wonder how he got any rest at all when they first started sharing a bed, but he’s gotten use to it now.
  8.  Who leaves their stuff around?: They both do. Mai leaves around her clothes and Naru always leaves books and files lying around, which leads to Mai finding them and putting them away, so they don’t get lost. 
  9. Who remembers to buy the milk?: Mai usually always remembers the groceries and what to pick up after work, just from her living alone and taking care of herself before.
  10. Who remembers anniversaries?: Surprisingly enough, Naru. Not that he much cares about anniversaries, but he tends to remember dates and things quite well, unlike Mai, who is actually the one who remembers last minute. (Not that he’ll admit, but one time when Mai forgot their anniversary he was kind of disappointed.)  
  11. Who cooks normally?: Mai, after they moved in together she started to improve on her cooking. (also she’s sure Naru would forget to eat if she didn’t remind him.)
  12. How often do they fight?: They never usually have big arguments, unless it’s over a case. However, they do bicker quite a bit like once… every two hours. (Half the time it’s Mai who gets angry and Naru just enjoys toying with her.) 
  13. What do they do when they’re away from each other? Whenever Naru has to go to England for SPR business, they send the occasional texts just to check in. There are rare occasions where Naru will give in and let Mai call and tell him about the day the office or possible cases, despite his hatred for small talk.
  14. Nicknames for each other: Mai for Naru: Naru, The narcissist. Naru for Mai: Dummy…In the most affectionate way Naru is capable of, of course.
  15. Who is more likely to pay for dinner?: Mmm…Naru. On the rare occasion where they do go out, Mai wouldn’t mind paying. Actually, she’d like to treat Naru to dinner sometimes, too (Mostly because she feels guilty for dragging him out), but Naru is usually quicker to take the bill (Mostly feeling guilty over not taking her out more) but Mai gets him back by buying him Tea.
  16. What would they get each other for gifts?: They’re not one for gift exchanges. Naru would probably just want more tea, really, and Mai would just be fine with just spending the day with him. 
  17. Who kissed who first?: Mai. It was just suppose to be a quick peck on the cheek but she accidentally missed and got the side of his mouth, instead. She couldn’t look at him for a week, she was so embarrassed.(She couldn’t remember if it was because he saved her or because he showed his kind side,that he usually keeps hidden away, and she just couldn’t help herself.Probably both.) 
  18. Who made the first move?: Mai. She confessed first, on both occasions. The first being before he left Japan and the second when she was positive about her feelings.
  19. Who remembers things?: Detail wise; Naru. Information stored away for a future argument: Mai.
  20. Who started the relationship?: Neither, it just gradually happened. Mai made the first moves and was open about how she felt for Naru (although, she was scared.) but she never pushed for more, she just wanted him to know. Naru eventually just accepted her feelings (even though he didn’t understand them) and started to give into his own feelings (even though he didn’t understand them.)
  21. Who cusses more?: Neither of them really swear, but between the two of them probably Mai.
  22. What would they do if the other one was hurt?: I think they would be both upset. Perhaps, More so, Mai; Since she gets so caught up about caring about other people, she can’t help but be more emotionally upset when something happens to Naru. Naru; while he cares deeply about his friends and Mai, he’s much more cold and aloof when it comes masking his emotions. He would be worried, but he would hide it well. 

I couldn’t resist! If you’re reading this, you should fill out with your own Ghost Hunt OTP head canons. No seriously, do it. The possible answers are so cute, and I am curious about everyone else answers.

What do you think? Did I capture what Naru and Mai’s future relationship could look like? I’m tempted to do my other Ghost hunt OTP’s but who knows!
