The title is pretty self explanatory, but I might as well ramble as I always do.
I won’t be gone long, a little more than two weeks, which makes for 2 TG chapters (ch134 that has yet to be translated and then ch135 before a one-week break) and 0 Kuro chapter.
I’ll be on mobile mainly until then, reblogging what my dash will hopefully provide and maybe even writing posts if I really have something to say, which is why I closed my askbox until I’m back with proper computer access.
Also, please keep in mind that, as stated in the rules (down the FAQ page), I’d rather not have questions related to theories sent through the messaging system, unless you really can’t wait for two weeks because it will be pretty hard for me to chat on the phone.
This vacation time is also the best moment for me to take a very small semi-hiatus as I was saying, which is why I’m closing the askbox and will surely only use the mobile app, because things have been rather exhausting lately and I really think I need a little break in order to be a little more joyful.
Don’t get me wrong, I definitely still love reading and writing theories (I will always) but I’ve grown rather tired of the fandoms lately (the way people are complaining about the story or the author, the way they’re acting towards each other, the debates being endless…) and personal stuff on top of it all isn’t helping.
It’s not particularly anyone’s fault, at least not that I’m aware of, but being slightly less involved than usual for the next two weeks or so can only motivate me and I’ll surely have time to reread all that I want to reread, so you’ll be able to ask anything you want when I reopen the askbox. ^^
There you go. :) Things will definitely be back to normal when TG ch136 and the next Kuro chapter will be around the corner in August and, until then, I wish good luck to all of you for things to come.
I decided to do some blogrates since there is 3k of you following me + I got my finals results and I passed!!! I’ve also followed 15+ cool blogs in just one day and i hope to follow more because you’re all amazing!!!
I’m sure I mentioned it, but yeah, I’m gonna be going on a trip from monday to saturday. Not really gonna write much but if you guys wanna send asks or something, please do. (Anything to drown out the stuff going on on my dash rn bc it’s causing me mega anxiety.)
on that note, i’ve been incredibly spacey due to severe mental strain and some serious shit going down for the past few months and with current stress and how busy i’m gonna be, i’m probably gonna be just as spacey despite being a little better mentally and i’m really sorry if i miss any messages or @’s people direct towards me! if i miss something, chances are i didn’t receive it or i just outright forgot to respond, in which case, feel free to hmu again!! it’s no bother at all!! i might take a while to respond to things and because of untreated mental illness i have difficulty talking to people and responding to stuff when i’m tired or drained so just. ya!!! if i miss something you send me just lmk again!!!
hey everybody my birthday is in a little under two weeks and i’ll be turning 21 and i figured id post my wishlist just. if anybody has extra money or somethin idk but yea if you buy me something and want me to write a tiny fic for you then i’d love to do that !
So this is it. The end of an era. Bidding farewell to The Colbert Report.Why the heartbreak, you ask. Well…
Once upon a time a teenage girl was sitting in front of her parents’ computer, wasting time on this new site called YouTube, when she stumbled upon a clip titled “Truthiness, explained by Stephen Colbert”. She remembered him from Daily Show pieces she had watched and loved in the past and apparently he had his own show now. Let’s check this out, she thought.
I didn’t understand every word Stephen was saying because my English simply wasn’t good enough at the time. But it didn’t matter. I laughed, I got it. I was in on the joke. I was one of the heroes. A ritual that would stay with me for almost a decade was born. There would be consequences.
One of those unforeseen consequences was me becoming increasingly interested in American politics and everything surrounding it. The frustration, the gridlock, the intricacies, the (admittedly increasingly rare) achievements, the enthusiasm- all these elements fascinated me. Last year I received my bachelor’s degree in that exact field. And when I would ask myself at 4am during finals week ’why the hell am I doing this?’ I would watch a clip and be quickly reminded. Oh yeah, that’s why. Thanks, Stephen.
The Report went places where no other show had gone before, where no other host had dared to go. It took us through congressional districts and congressional hearings; to Vancouver and Iraq; through outrageous field pieces and mind-blowing interviews; through Green Screen Challenges and naming contests; Christmas Specials and rallies; a South Carolina presidential campaign and a very real Super PAC; through giddy silliness and moving sincerity. It caught you off-guard as much as it made you shout along with the audience. It made you laugh and yes, even though the host himself would vigorously disapprove, it made you think.
I love this show, simple as that. It helped me through times of depression; it cheered me on in times of joy. It stayed with me from 9th grade to grad school, from the very first episode till the last. For the past nine years it conveyed a sense of stability when everything else around me was changing and when I was changing with it. Much like a friend you could turn to at any time when you were in need.
I was lucky enough to attend four tapings, all of them filled with incredibly special moments and eye-to-eye conversations with Stephen. During my first one in 2009 I was so nervous I thought I was going to faint. And then there I was, sitting in the first row after having waited outside for hours, unable to believe my luck when Stephen called on me during the Q&A and made me his Official German Friend™. A dream coming true. Four years later I got to hand Stephen my bachelor’s thesis. “Do you have a copy for Jon, too?” he asked me. I hadn’t. “Well, I’ll share mine with him when I’m done reading.” Unreal.
Yes, the audience-host relationship of the Report was something unprecedented. He needed us like we needed him. The Colbert Report couldn’t have worked without the assistance from the Colbert Nation. What a joyous symbiosis to be part of.
The show has changed and the show has grown and apparently all good things must come to an end. It’s been quite a ride and I’m gonna miss it like crazy. There really is no more elegant way to put it.
Your muse walks into an empty room and sees Cosette sitting hunched in the center, the surrounding lighting is dim, yet they can see easily. Her body is completely still and doesn’t respond to their arrival. Your muse pauses a few paces in, and Cosette’s head whips around silently to stare them in the eyes. Something doesn’t feel right.
What does your muse do?
(These are not considered canon interactions, this is just for fun for the other procrastinators browsing the internet right now. Most people reblog with a response, but it’s totally fine if no one plays a long lol)
