i'm not a writer so

anonymous asked:

has Emily Bett been confirmed for season 6?? I'm getting anxiety over this and I'm spamming a lot of olicity blogs please help.

I don’t know, but I assume she will be. Everyone on the cast & crew (and even fans and interviewers) say that the show wouldn’t have made it as far as it has without Felicity. She brings in a special light no one can replace

Honestly, if Ohtaka really was as horrible of a storyteller as some people make her out to be, we wouldn’t have such great characters like Sinbad or Serendine, Judar, Hakuryuu, Abra, etc. Nor would a lot of us have gotten so absorbed into Magi that we followed it so far. I mean sure, there are some things that maybe could have been told different, but that’s to be expected. Ohtaka is writing in her own view, with her own opinions and ideas. They’re bound to clash with others. Because we’re all different and have different beliefs of what should and shouldn’t be. It’s natural. But instead of pointing swords at her for not matching our ideal version of how everything should be, instead it’s better to come to understand not everything will go as we want and appreciate the things we do enjoy. Give understanding and keep in mind that not everyone will be pleased. It’s just natural.

LISTEN UP KIDS this is going to be a very important meta about how both spencer & shane are wrongly vilified, how rick isn’t a saint ( shock horror ) & how all three are more alike than you think ( @gutspilt​ i got ur back boo ).

first thing’s first. who is the primary character we follow from day one? who do we base our reactions off of depending on their experience in this new world so far? you guessed it: RICK GRIMES. rick is the storytelling focus; we watch his development and - consciously or not - base our opinions on other characters upon situations he’s been through thus far. we see the world through rick’s eyes, so it’s not surprising we inherit some of his internal bias, even though we as viewers are capable of seeing the whole picture.

this leads onto my main point: how both spencer and shane are directly antagonistic towards rick, ergo they’re immediately painted in a bad light. but think about the parallels for a second, and you’ll start to see why, if you praise rick’s actions, you can’t immediately condemn those opposing him.

I complain bitterly about TMNT 2012. All the time. 

Literally every chance I get, I’ll complain about the character dynamics being shot, the countless wasted and/or dropped plot lines, and the shitty, short-changed character arcs. I am literally that post about loving something and everyone knowing it, except it’s the opposite and I hate my favorite series. Now this wouldn’t be a problem, if say

everyone I complained to already knew and accepted the fact that I’m obsessed with animated turtles.

It is a shame, and a real struggle, that most people do not.

I will be on a rant, about how mad I am about Karai’s/April’s/Shinigami’s treatment as a female character lately, or about the wasted potential of Casey and Donnie’s quite literally explosive friendship, or how Splinter turned into a real deadbeat dad in the end and had the worst case of favoritism for Leo ever-

and then the person I’m ranting at will inevitably ask, “Hey, what series is this again? It sounds pretty cool/detailed/something-or-other-that-everyone-says-when-they’re-politely-interested-in-something.”

And then, I’ll have to rapidly try to find a series name that isn’t about animated turtles, one that also isn’t aimed at much younger audiences than me, and will probably say some shitty English translation of an anime title or an obscure live action series and pray to the furthest ring gods that this person doesn’t watch whatever I’m bullshitting in that moment.

If anyone thinks I’m kidding about this, I’m sorry to tell you, I’m really not. My struggle is real and I need to get a handle on my shitty obsession.

do you have

that one character

that one freaking character

that you love more than your own life

and you get so fucking happy when you see them on screen

because heck yeah, that’s your baby

He’s staring at me while I’m talking and the look in his eyes makes me pause. “What?” I ask self-consciously.

He smiles but shrugs at me. “Nothing,” he says, maddeningly.

I scrunch my nose in distaste.

“I just,” he says slowly, carefully. “I just want to hang out with you my whole life. You know?”

—  i love you // lily rose.

“How are you doing?”

The question kind of stops you. Because you’re okay. Your world is still spinning and you’re still smiling and you’re okay.

But then sometimes you’re not okay. Not even one little bit. And you don’t really sleep at nights because your bed is as empty as your arms. And there’s a space on your wall where his photo used to hang. And sometimes you can’t even eat because he’s gone and the sick feeling in your stomach just becomes a permanent part of you. And when you kiss someone new their lips are wrong and their hands don’t tug your hair and their body doesn’t feel quite right beneath your wandering hands. And sometimes you cry and you don’t think you’ll ever stop.

But you don’t say that. They don’t want to hear that. You just smile and say, “I’m okay I guess.”

I’m just trying, you know? Day by day, second by second, I’m trying to keep myself together.

Am I the tiniest bit disappointed Diego Luna didn’t get to angrily mutter in Spanish at some point in Rogue One? Yes.

Did it spawn a headcanon where the language on Cassian’s home planet sounds suspiciously like Spanish and the first time he says he loves Jyn is after an argument where he turns away to fix something (distracting himself) and he mutters “Because I love you, that’s why” in Space Spanish?

Also yes.
