i would've been dead

hey. all concerts are good concerts but sign me the FUCK up for small venue concerts over big arena concerts any day

Apologies in advance if this is stupid AF, but, okay so we know how Harry was the one who had to kill Voldemort, and how he was the Chosen One blalalala–

In DH, by the final battle between Harry and Voldo, all the horcruxes had been destroyed, including the one inside Harry, so does that mean that anybody with incredibly quick reflexes could’ve aimed a well placed AK at Voldo and done him in?

Cause technically Harry didn’t even shoot the killing curse at him, Voldo as good as shot himself lol. But at that point, with the horcruxes gone and Voldo being nothing but a wispy bag of bones with 1/7th of a soul in him, could just anyone have killed him?

psychic: *reads my mind*

my mind: in season 2 episode 1 keith talked about how “if it wasn’t for [Shiro], [his] life would have been a lot different” so this heavily implies that Shiro has had a significant impact on Keith and the tender smile that he gives while saying this line is so full of affection and appreciation that you can’t help but speculate the depth of their relationship not to mention all throughout season 3 you see keith heavily grieving over shiro’s disappearance and josh keaton has implied that he could’ve been searching for months and that wouldn’t be strange given how the team appeared to move on already but we have no mention at all about their relationship before the kerberos mission so what could the voltron team be hiding how important is shiro’s and keith’s relationship that they haven’t said or shown anything besides a tiny cameo and we’re already halfway through the series what does-

psychic: what the fuck

Dream Daddy was fun but I wish two things were different:

  1. Fewer dead spouses
  2. More Dads who started their families with other men

From what I experienced in-game, Mat and Robert have dead female partners, and I’m assuming Damien’s spouse is dead but I wasn’t able to find out for sure. Given how he talks about understanding Lucien acting out because of some big event, I’m assuming it’s the death of a parent. I could be very wrong, I’d love to be wrong. 

Instead of dead spouses, it would’ve been cool to see more happily divorced, or making-it-work divorced, or co-parenting, or multiple-household, or re-marriage parenting situations - just something with fewer/no dead spouses (esp women given the prevalence of the fridged wife trope) involved.

The only dad I saw who started a family with another man was Hugo. It’d be great to see the ratio of mlm dads who start families with other men, increased. More men who start families and raise kids with men would’ve been fantastic. I didn’t get any info on Damien or Brian’s past relationship, so maybe they both have previous male partners? It’d be awesome if they did.

And all the Swanfire shippers and Neal lovers breath a sigh of relief (or squee in happiness).

Thank goodness.

THIS IS IN THE SAME ZIP CODE AS WHAT I WAS GOING TO TRY TO HEADCANON I AM LEGIT EXCITED ABOUT THIS

This is, sadly, about all the exposition we get. While it’s great (and I again want to stress how excited I am they went back to even try to explain this at all), it doesn’t come CLOSE to answering all the questions.

I HAVE A GREAT MANY QUESTIONS

Clearly I still have a lot of work to do. This actually creates even bigger plot holes than when we started, but I can’t be mad since, like I said, I was looking to build my home in this neighborhood anyway, so I would’ve created these same problems for myself.

But that’s work for when I finish the season and learn everything I can. For now, let’s just look at what we have here, and what we can infer about Galaxia from it.

For one, she has a connection of some kind of all Star Seeds. Enough to be able to perfectly zero in on Mamoru’s, and enough to know from a distance that Saturn’s was “premature”. THERE IS A VAST CANYON OF PLOT HOLES HERE. But you know me. I will fill them.

(On a tangent from this, it may suggest that the Star Seeds are fixed and tied at birth, which could be relevant to my Phases Theory. Because it’s Hotaru, it’s difficult to be certain on that, but it’s created an interpretive option.)

Galaxia was opportunistic zeroing in on Nehellenia, but she also had to be really really certain of what she was doing. By her own admission, the threat had to be significant enough to force Saturn to awaken (so, PRETTY FUCKING SIGNIFICANT), but not so strong that Galaxia couldn’t be pretty sure all the Senshi would survive it.

Because Galaxia IS the completionist here. And unless a Star Seed is retrievable after death (possible, I suppose, but feels unlikely given all we’ve seen not just of Star Seeds but all the magical tchockies that live in people in the Sailor Moon universe), everyone needs to keep breathing until the point Galaxia makes them stop.

But Galaxia plucked exactly one string, and then sat back and waited for everything to play exactly how she wanted. Being a far-reaching mastermind is awesome, but the one critical thing it requires above all else is KNOWLEDGE. Galaxia HAD to be acting with a fuckton of information and precision insight to multiple players she felt pretty confident in.

I am painfully aware of the work ahead of me to make this make sense with the other events of the season.

[Please, nobody offer any help on this front just now. I still have several episodes to watch, and much more to learn. Being a four-season veteran I’m aware that my odds on everything making sense without some effort is low, but it’s important I discover everything I can for myself first.]

Sherlock isn’t the kind of man who can honestly love any woman, as he’s already something of a polygamist – married to his intelligence, his ego, and his love of unraveling conspiracies. No, he can’t enjoy romantic love, because he’s addicted to his obsession with “the game.”

This episode represents the culmination of this season’s main theme: the wonders and perils of love. It began with Sherlock’s return from a false death, forcing John to revisit his agony over his best friend’s demise and reconcile with Sherlock, in spite of all he’s put John through. Sherlock, meanwhile, witnessed the romantic love John Watson found with his Mary, an extraordinary woman who impressed Sherlock with her strength, natural abilities, and her clear adoration of his best friend. 

But it ended with an examination of Sherlock’s idea that love is a weakness to be exploited, an intoxicant that blinds, moving people to commit unspeakable acts. Sherlock refers to it as human error. And the gateway to this astounding tale happens to be one incredibly unctuous blackmailer, a media magnate with a penchant for exploiting sensitive information for personal gain.
