i'm realizing this very second that it looks like i ship these two i don't okay

Lisanna and Lucy’s impact on Natsu’s life

I was re-reading past chapters of FT and I realized one thing: One of the tropes in some kind of fanfiction, which is that Lucy and Lisanna hate each other and fight for the love of Natsu, is totally OOC. In fact, if you look closely while reading the manga or watching the anime, you can appreciate that they actually have things in common

Some days ago I’ve read a post in which somebody wrote that, until Natsu met Lisanna, the guild hadn’t really treated Natsu well. Actually, after Lisanna’s “death” he got more destructive in his jobs until he meets Lucy who, like Lisanna, befriended him and treated him like an equal. I can really see why.

(I don’t own the image, it belongs to ERTEAR).

Both Lucy and Lisanna have had lonely childhoods, the first because of her mother’s death and a father that didn’t really care about her and the second one because of losing her parents at young age and being despised by the townspeople of their hometown. I think that their kindness comes from that loneliness, which made them have less prejudices about people. Don’t you believe me? Okay, let’s go to the past a little bit: 

Do you remember when Natsu told Lisanna about the Dragon Egg? And when he told Lucy about his parent being a dragon? In both cases they could laugh at him for his crazy thoughts. But they didn’t. Lisanna offered her help while taking care of the egg and Lucy only told him that how come they could think that they would find a dragon in a city. They treated him like one of their friends and didn’t mock him, like other ones did. 

What I want to say is that, for me, both Lucy and Lisanna are two characters that made such a big impact on Natsu’s life, making him become what he is in the present day (being Lisanna his past and Lucy his future… but that depends on the interpretations). So, making them fight and despise each other in fics is writing them OOC, actually. They unconditionally care about Natsu’s wellbeing and the relationships they have in the guild, and they wouldn’t sacrifice their friendship for a love triangle (hell, you can see in both Tenro and Tartaros arc that Lucy and Lisanna get along well. In fact, is Lisanna who tells Lucy to stay close to him when they’re about to fight Hades). They wouldn’t harm Natsu that way.

These ladies deserve all the love. ^^

hey :) so i see that you ship ziall a lot and i want to know why? like what made you start to believe in them? me as a ziam shipper, i don't really look into other ships. but i'm curious on why apperently more people start to believe in ziall :) is it just the looks they give each other or are there also touches that i havent seen yet?

i’m so glad you asked!

come, come, take a journey with me

okay, so speaking for myself at the very beginning of my one direction experience, i was sort of into niam more for lack of knowing anything else and it was cute and cuddly and room 317 and all that jazz but then

Now I get why Interstellar is so confusing to people.
  • So I watched Interstellar two weeks ago and loved it. A friend of mine who doesn't watch or read much science fiction had a few questions about it, and after talking to him a while on Facebook, I realized why people who are not as genre-experienced as me and my nerdy friends may be really, really confused by the whole movie. To wit:
  • Him: Hey trever
  • Me: Sup, dude?
  • Him: Hey man so I'm glad you've seen the movie Im sure you can provide some more clarity
  • Me: That's debatable, but I can try. 😛
  • Him: Lol so explain what happened,to Rom
  • Like why did the ship explode
  • Me: Which one?
  • Him: The black guy how did he die
  • Me: There was a bomb in the robot that he was working on.
  • Him: A bomb?
  • Ok planted by Mann. Okay. What are those dust storms? Like why is the earth dying
  • How can you encode the location into,a watch
  • Me: The earth is dying because an Oxygen consuming, nitrogen respiring super blight is consuming all of the fixed nitrogen in the plants and killing them. The dust clouds are what happens in the Great Plains of the US when all if the grass dies.
  • See the great dustbowl of the 1920's as a real world example.
  • The second hand of the watch is pulsing back and forth in Morse code.
  • Incidentally the real problem with the blight is that is not only consuming all of the plants, but also that it is changing the atmosphere of the Earth do that there is not enough oxygen to breathe.
  • Him: Why is there no military?
  • And why are they always talking about gravity
  • What has gravity,got to do with the ghost in her room
  • Me: Gravity is, science supposes, the only thing that can relay information through time.
  • The reasons for this involve some curious maths.
  • Gravity effects seem to be observable instantaneously across any distance.
  • This suggests that whatever it is that gravity works through--whatever force that is--it travels faster than light.
  • Theoretically, then, if it travels faster than light, it travels outside of the linear limitations of the fourth dimension. The fourth dimension, of course, is what we call time.
  • If this theory is true, then gravity can transmit information both ways along a timeline.
  • And, as such, could be used to communicate with the past.
  • Ignoring the problematic nature of paradoxes if you think about that too hard. XD
  • Him: Okay so when,they throw that coin down in murphy's room why does,he blame gravity
  • I don't understand how they figured out in her bedroom it was gravity
  • Me: As I understand it, the blaming of gravity at that instant was more of a joke. When the Lunar Lander module breaks in Murph's room at the beginning of the movie (well, when we see her bring the broken model to the breakfast table) she blames it on gravity, which sounds like a weak tweenager's excuse for breaking it herself. So when the coin falls, her dad blames gravity and tacitly tells her that he's not angry at her for breaking the lander. Shortly thereafter, he realized there definitely is something weird with her room, as Morse code bands appear on the dust on the floor.
  • And at that point, "gravity" is invoked more or less like "magic". Because there's been a lot of weird stuff happening at the farm that week
  • It's only later do we realize that the oddness there is *actually* gravity.
  • And there is no military because keeping a military is very expensive--it is only in the last 50 years that countries have had enough surplus labor to keep a standing army due to the incredible rise of productivity brought on by computers and massive robotic industrialization. When there's not enough food to go around, no one has the money to spend on tanks and planes and maintenance and fuel and every other of a million things that a standing army needs.
  • Up until right around the Korean War, the mere act of keeping a standing army was considered a belligerent act by most nations, because who would keep a military trained and ready if they weren't going to use it?
  • And, finally, the ghost in Murph's room is her father.
  • In the tesseract, we see him interacting with her room, pushing things around and knocking them over. That's just him messing with the gravity waves locally, but from Murph's point of view, it looks like a ghost. Until she realizes it is her father, calling out to her from somewhere or somewhen beyond her experience.
  • Her belief that the ghost in her room is her father is what leads her to look at the watch he gave her and notice that, rather than ticking around in a circle, it bounced back and forth in morse code.
  • The morse code is the data from inside the black hole that TARS has gathered.
  • Which her father relays to get through manipulating gravity waves from inside the tesseract.
  • And that data is what she needed to solve the gravity equations and create antigravity to lift off the massive ark that NASA built.
  • Him: But how can u use gravity to program a watch
  • Me: He's not programming the watch.
  • He's using gravity to gently twitch the second hand.
  • Imagine like he has a string tied to it through all of time and space.
  • Each time he twitches his finger, the second hand twitches in Murph's hand.
  • And Murph can read the morse code numbers that she needs to solve the equations.
  • Him: Why did all those planets suck
  • Like that water one was insane
  • Me: There's some definite scientific irregularities with the planets, but that at least is pretty answerable.
  • Do you know how waves form?
  • Him: Tectonic plates
  • Me: >.>
  • Not...so much.
  • That determines continental formation.
  • (The land rising and moving around.)
  • Waves are caused by two different elements
  • 1. the tides.
  • The tides, of course, are simply gravitic interactions between the moon and the earth.
  • The moon has a relatively small effect on the earths' gravititational pull, but it does counteract it enough that the side of the earth that is closer to the moon actually drifts up a little bit towards the moon.
  • The water, at least.
  • The earth part of the earth only drifts up a few milimeters.
  • But the water moving closer to the moon as it the earth rotates around its axis (and the moon rotates around the earth) creates a gentle waveform action.
  • Basically, earth's tide is one gigantic wave, rotating around the planet at a touch over 1 revolution per day.
  • The other element that causes waves is wind.
  • Him: So why was that one so big
  • Me: Now, a lot of things cause wind motion, but the principal cause of wind motion are temperature differentials.
  • Say, the difference between the ocean and a landmass.
  • Or the difference between the sunny side of a planet and the dark side.
  • We don't get (many) terrifingly huge waves on Earth from that because the gravity attraction between the Earth and the Moon is not phenomenal (tides are relatively reasonable) and wind patterns tend to get disrupted by land masses (all of the continents that get in the way of a really good wind).
  • The planet that our astronauts go to is located distressingly near a black hole, and is covered entirely in water.
  • This has two effects
  • 1. the wind doesn't form small local currents over the temperature between the land and the water.
  • Instead, it forms giant currents between the dark and the day side.
  • Him: If it's covered entirely in water how are they standing up?
  • Me: The water's only a few feet there.
  • They don't specify how deep it is elsewhere.
  • It may only be a few feet over the entire planet.
  • Now, with giant, uninterrupted currents of air sweeping across the globe, you get a massive "fetch" as it is called, to build up waves.
  • This is how Rogue waves form; when the wind blows just right across the Pacific or Atlantic, you get a wave of freakish proportions and, if nothing ends up breaking it up before it gets near land, you have a 10 or 15 story tall wave moving across the ocea.
  • The other effect of this planet is that it is in a giant gravity sump.
  • It's near a black hole, which is pretty much the theoretical infinite point of gravitic distortion.
  • So being in this gravity well causes massive tides.
  • These tides create giant waves, too.
  • Between one and the other, we are intended to believe that giant tsunamis sweep the globe every few minutes.
  • One other weirdness about the water planet is that, because it is in such a huge gravity well, time passes at a very different rate there than in orbit outside the planet.
  • We already know that extreme gravity wells--such as those around a black hole--slow time down to a virtual standstill.
  • So while the away team is on the planet, 22 years pass.
  • Well, more accurately, as they descend into the gravity well, their apparent time to an external observer slows down progressively as they get closer to the surface, and as they take off of the surface, they speed up until they sync back with local n-space time.
  • And the sum apparent time that passes over the course of the time they are gone is something like 22 hours.
  • Now, a scientific problem that I have with that planet is that any planet undergoing sufficient tidal stress to have giant waves like that would likely itself be broken into pieces.
  • So I'm not sure that it's scientifically plausible, but I was willing to go along with it for the point of the story.
  • Him: Lol ok so what happend to the 11other scientists who got to their planet and,it,wasn't good
  • Me: They died.
  • That's why the mission was considered the height of bravery.
  • Because all of those scientists would be going out into the night, alone, and would likely be dying farther away from the rest of the human race than anyone else ever had before.
  • The odds of their mission being worthwhile were slim at best.
  • So the sacrifice of very probably giving up your life in the faint hope that you would help save humanity is brave. And tragic.
  • And that's why Mann was such a bastard. He led them all out there to die, and wasn't brave enough to die himself when his planet was unsuitable.
  • Him: What happend to Edmunds
  • Me: They don't say.
  • His planet was clearly habitable, but there's no indication whether or not he lived.
  • Presumably, he did not, since we see Anne Hathaway alone on the planet as Matt McConaughey steals a space ship to go and find her.
  • But it's left unclear, as far as I know.
  • Ah, apparently he died in a rock slide on his planet.
  • At least, according to Wikipedia.
  • But I didn't realize that from the movie.
  • Him: Good stuff
  • Me: Glad I could help out.
  • Him: Thanks a lot. Oh wait why did Mann die?
  • Me: Mann? Because he was too stupid to dock correctly with the Endurance.
  • So when he tried to open the airlock, he instead caused an explosive decompression.
  • Explosive decompression is what happens when a massive imbalance in pressures equalizes itself at great speed.
  • Presumably, Mann was hurled out into space, lost forever,.
  • Him: Could he have docked correctly and boarded
  • Me: Theoretically, yes.
  • But there were two reasons why he did not.
  • 1) he was not a trained pilot.
  • 2) TARS turned off the automatic docking
  • So he tried, as an untrained pilot with very tight time constraints--he knew that Matt McConaughey was right behind him--to force the dock. He failed to make a perfect seal, overrode the safeties, and then tried to board the Endurance. When he did, the explosive decompression caused the shuttle to forcibly eject off the docking ring and then smash into the spinning module, and then from there caused all of the explosiony goodness you saw.
  • Him: Hah Mann was such a tool
  • Me: Oh, yeah.
  • A right bastard.
  • Him: Thanks, dude. Lots to think abot
  • Me: No worries. Hope I helped some. :)
