i've been meaning to watch it

let the flames of your passion grow.

the fact that Edward used Oswald’s father and not his mother for his little scheme has really stuck out to me and I’m taking it as proove for Edward not really wanting to “destroy” Oswald. Edward knew how important Gertrude was to Oswald and that using her would have affected Oswald even more. Edward clearly wants his  slightly petty revenge but by choosing Elijah over Gertrude he shows a flicker of something that implies that there is a line he won’t cross

The Signs as Things my Grandfather Has Done

Aries: Rolled down his window and screamed: “YOU’RE ALL A BUNCH OF IDIOTS” at people protesting something he didn’t personally agree with. (I can’t remember exactly what they were protesting… I just remember it happening)

Taurus: Trash talked Donald Trump on a number of occasions, and called the guy who threw the shoe at George W. Bush a “goddamn national hero”.

Gemini: Looked me dead in the eye and said “Shianne, I’m so glad you agree that Kirk and Spock are gay. I’ve been trying to tell your grandma that for years.”

Cancer: Recorded all the episodes of Full House and put them on a video cassette for me. 

Leo: Whenever we drove past the cemetery told the same shitty joke: “You know people are just dying to get in there…” He laughed hysterically every time this happened. 

Virgo: I asked him what he was afraid of, he answered, “I’m afraid of someone holding a gun to my head and threatening to kill my entire family. That’s what I’m afraid of”. I was 7.

Libra: Jumped out of a moving car to avoid an argument with my grandmother.

Scorpio: Watched FOX News with me and paused every 10 seconds to explain why they were wrong. 

Sagittarius: Stayed up all night watching reruns of Seinfeld on multiple occasions.

Capricorn: Got really irritated that I kept calling crayons “colors”. He corrected me every single time.

Aquarius: Never signed up for the draft, even though he was 18 in ‘68. Is also very proud of this and says “I WOULD DO IT AGAIN!!!!!” on many occasions.

Pisces: Took a picture with his toy sized Yorkie for his Christmas card. They posed like he was taking her to the prom, and he was wearing a suit for some reason.

Listen, listen. The fact Eliot Spencer’s response to Parker being upset and asking if they could kill the guy who upset her was a shrug and, “Yeah. I mean, I could.” will never, ever not be important to me.

Let me say one thing about the finale

I’ve been watching it over and over because of feels reasons, and this might be due to my filthy mind being, well, filthy but the more I look at that scene, the more it feels to me that it was edited just like they would edit sex scenes in movies

I mean, forget the splendid foreplay, the coming together at last part they’ve got (wonderfully) going on 

and even the clear, blatant, mutual adoration

now just take a look at this, and imagine

as the music urges towards its climax and you hear the lyrics going

your hands, your legs
my hands, my legs

which is already as allusive as can be without being entirely explicit

it’s easy to picture these as the little sighs and moans and ragged breaths you’d hear if this was a sex scene, AND THEN

the movements become more frantic, more confused, almost blurry

you see, but at the same time you don’t see everything; there’s the very same intensity and pathos as any explicitly romantic/sensual scene, and yet just like “proper” sex scenes it leaves part of the act to your own imagination

and the thing is, so many people have argued that this show didn’t give us complete “evidence” of their romantic relationship, because we had a censored kiss and then only hugs and hand holding, but guys

guys

this whole performance was a hymn to their love, and it very much looked and felt like lovemaking

I mean, this is as good as showing them have sex, and if it’s not enough for some people I don’t gIVE A DAMN COZ MY OTP IS THE CHEESIEST CHEESE AND GOD FGSGJ THEY’RE  S O  I N  L O V E  AND AS FUCKING CANON AS CAN BE AND I’M GONNA CRY ABOUT THIS FACT FOR THE NEXT TWO EONS, THANKS EVERYONE BYE

OH YEAH SORRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS GUYS

“I hate you.”

Me: Welp, that’s the last episode of the show! Again. Now that I’ve finished my rewatch maybe I can start on that other thing–

My ADHD brain: watch it again

Me: I mean sure but I’ve already seen every episode three times now and there’s this show I’ve been trying to watch for a couple months–

ADHD: no, watch it again, I like it

Me: … a’ight, I guess I could go for another rewatch.

why I like abusive ships.

I like abusive/ dysfunctional/ unhealthy ships. I like them because they’re different than the typical “fluffy” ships. I like them because their angst is different than what “normal” ships go through and the dynamic is interesting. I like abusive and dysfunctional and unhealthy ships because abusive and dysfunctional and unhealthy relationships exist and it’s important to recognize them for what they are. I am not a bad person who thinks these sort of relationships are good  and healthy, I am a person who is interested by the dynamics and character development that occurs in such ships and I am a person who believes others need to be made aware of these relationships because they actually exist. I am not justifying the actions of the characters, nor am I denying that these ships are abusive and unhealthy. I am appreciating them as plot and character development devices while acknowledging that the are abusive and unhealthy.

Tl;dr, please stop shaming people for liking abusive ships. Liking an abusive ship does not mean I support abuse.

As of this writing, Princess Tutu has pulled ahead on both Twitter and Tumblr so DANCING DUCKS IT IS

PGSM will still be my main project to finish, but for fun side things I’ll rotate around between a variety of side shows based on polls and whatever strikes my fancy at the moment. If this is not your cup o’ tea, everything will be tagged #sms watches pt because I am nothing if not a creative genius. 

I feel like the reason I’m so into anime again is because I didn’t give myself time to grow out of it in middle school, I just quit cold turkey but now it’s back full force and I’m watching gay ice skaters fall in love every wednesday

the Series of Unfortunate Events show on Netflix is really good, with a surreal style reminiscent of Pushing Daisies, but the pedophilia undertones in the first few episodes make me really uncomfortable

Anyone want some angst?

So this only applies if you’ve seen/read Les Miserables. 

Remember “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables”?

So imagine an end of the Series hint where everyone is dead but Kyr (or Markus but I feel Kyr fits best) and him singing this song at an epty Nine Shrines bar.

It gets even worse than in Les Mis because this was a bar. A place of business people are supposed to be at. 

But without the rambunctious owners providing atmosphere the customers stopped coming. 

Carry on.

ROLLO ; c. 860 CE - c. 932 CE
    Rolf, Hrolf, Hrolfr, Rou, Rollon, Robert

Son of the Norwegian Earl of Møre, Rollo was part of raids on Scotland, England, Flanders and France. Rollo left Norway around 900; some say exile for lawlessess, some say as simple independance from his king, and arrived in France in the next decade. He established himself along the Seine and laid seige to Paris during the reign of Charles III. The peace and treaty that followed allowed Rollo lands near the mouth of the Seine, what would become the Dukedom of Normandy.

He passed the title to his son before he died, and though he was Christened ‘Rolf’, Rollo is said to have died a pagan. Rollo is the great-great-great grandfather of William the Conquerer, and ancestor of most European royalty, current and abolished. Rollo had two wives in his lifetime, Poppa of Bayaux, allegedly married by the controversial More Danico. When he converted to Christianity, he married Gisela of France, though her existance, and how legend says she was treated by her new husband, are debated.
