So, Prison Break will be back in a matter of hours.

And to a lot of you, that may mean nothing. 

But it means a hell of a lot to me.

Prison Break first aired when I was fourteen. I don’t remember much about the night itself, but what I do remember is kicking up a real fuss when my brothers outvoted me on the choice of programming, the two of them commandeering the TV remote and forcing me to watch the pilot of this new prison show instead of the episode of House that I had apparently very much wanted to watch at the time. After that night, though, House certainly never took precedence in my schedule ever again, because I had fallen hard for Prison Break in a way that I never had with a show before (or since), my soul already eagerly sold to it before the credits were even rolling on the first episode. 

For the next four years of my life, it was my obsession, my joy, my greatest love, the one thing I could talk endlessly about (particularly any part related to MiSa, my OTP of all OTPs), and the mere thought of which would always make me happy. It led me to my first fan forum, to amazing friends (who I am still in touch with to this day), and also brought me into the world of fanfiction, which in itself became (and remains) a hugely important part of my life. 

As it went on, the show not only taught me life lessons like sacrifice and making difficult decisions and taking responsibility for your actions; it also taught me about myself, and what I wanted and valued and believed. And, as with any show that truly pulls you in, the characters were always far more than just actors spouting lines– they were like family to me, and I celebrated and struggled and grieved with them through four incredible and traumatising seasons. I genuinely cried more tears for them and their pain than I ever did over anything else in my own (obviously very fortunate and privileged) life. 

The same year that Prison Break ended, I graduated high school and was accepted into medical school, a career that I had chosen for several very good reasons, not the least of which was because my still-forming teenage self had looked at Dr Sara Tancredi and had seen exactly the kind of woman I wanted to grow up to be. About five years after that, I was freshly graduated as a doctor, and finally got the chance to meet Went, Dom, and Sarah at my first Comic Con, and was able to thank them in person for the beautiful thing that they had helped create, and which– in Sarah’s case in particular, of course– had helped to create me. 

Today, I’m exactly a month shy of my twenty-sixth birthday, and have been a doctor for almost two and a half years, having even worked briefly in the prison system during that time, among many other things. I may not have the posters hanging on my wall anymore, and the cardboard box full of memorabilia and carefully folded cranes might be tucked away in a closet out of sight, but even still, this show has never left me. It’s in the “Be the change you want to see in the world” ring that I’ve worn every day for the last nine years. It’s in the tiny origami flower that has been tattooed on the back of my left ear since I was nineteen. It’s in the crane that was tattooed on my left wrist two years ago in Chicago, with those same old forum friends beside me, all coming together for the first time in our ten-year friendship to visit the city and the prison that had been the setting for the story that had brought us into each other’s lives. But even more than the marks on my skin, its mark is still inside me, a permanent building block in the foundation of who I am. 

In the last eight years, there’s only one thing about this show that I’ve always regretted, one thing that I have literally wished (on shooting stars, four-leaf clovers, birthday cakes, 11:11, dandelions– you name it, I’ve wished on it) that I could change. Of course, I know that happy endings don’t always exist; that reality is hard and cruel and whatever, so supposedly TV should be too. But that never stopped me from wishing that there could have been just one more happy ending out there to give to this story.

Then, about two years ago, something happened. Stars– both astronomical and celebrity– aligned. Whispers like ‘reboot’ and ‘season 5′ floated around, and then suddenly, startlingly, my dream had started looking like a possibility. A possibility that eventually turned into a miraculous definite, the confirmation followed by months of filming and promoting that I promptly did my very best to ignore or hide from, because I was convinced that if I thought about it too much– let myself hope too much– it would somehow all disappear again; would revert to being merely an elaborate fantasy that I’d concocted in my head, a silly fangirl’s headcanon to rectify her OTP’s heartbreak as well as her own.

But tonight, it’s all becoming real. Tonight, for the first time in eight years, I will turn on my TV and see my character-family again; will experience that old feeling afresh. And though there’s certainly always the chance that the new season will somehow be a disappointment, or will only add more pain, it’s a chance I’m so very willing to take.  

A chance that I’m so, so grateful even exists.

So, if you can, tune in tonight (9/8c on Fox). Even if you’ve never watched before, even if you think that frankly I’m probably just overhyping it and it’s actually nowhere near as great as I claim. Do it anyway, and show the network and showrunners that what they have done means something to the viewers out there– to the people like me, who got far more from this show than just a fascinating story, who might have been a very different person today if they’d managed to wrestle the TV remote off of their brothers on that one night a dozen years ago. And who knows; a success for Prison Break now, like with The X-Files and Gilmore Girls before it, could mean reboots– and therefore justice– for even more beloved shows down the line, and even more opportunities for other fans to re-experience the things that helped to shape them into who they are.

And, well, this moment may have been eight long years in the making– but whatever happens, it was worth it.

a summary of rick and morty from someone who has never watched the show
  • rick: morty (burp) morty morty i'm saying something kinda fucked up and random and could be seen as witty writing morty
  • morty: ooh gosh
  • rick: i'm talking even faster now morty and our dialogue is being cut over each other to make it more hectic morty
  • morty: what are you talking about rick ooh gosh

some sketches about a very small AU of mine that I created quite long time ago

In order to learn new magic, Ed pretended to be a girl and attend this school which is for girls only. Roy is the head sorcerer of the shool campus and got his status by mastered Flame Alchemy. Ed can summon narwhal Al(s) using his wand and at some point when Ed is powerful enough, he can summon armor Al as his guardian for a small period of time. Roy’s hands are severely damaged because of Flame Alchemy and he’d never show his wounds to anyone besides Hughes, who got killed in the war between good witches and bad witches. Ed later got into this war and lost his arm and leg, which will be replaced with automails by the Rockbells’ mechanic witches.

anyone else feel like you’re just pretending to be excited? like you know you should be excited, and you want to be, but you’re just not?

For anyone who loved Yuri on Ice and how it had a nice, well-handled romance between two adult men, I’d like to recommend This Boy is a Professional Wizard, a short four-episode anime about a wizard struggling with depression, and the guy he meets at a bar one night. You can watch it legally on Crunchyroll via that link.

It’s not terribly original or ground-breaking or anything in terms of it’s story, but from what I remember [it’s been like two years since I watched it so my memory’s fuzzy] it’s really cute, sweet, free from most of the more shitty tropes of the BL genre, and has a happy ending. It also has a really incredible and experimental style of art and animation. It’s way more pretty than you’d think it’d be, even if it was obviously made by a small team of people.

Also don’t let the title mislead you, it’s definitely about two adult men. It’s just called that because it’s part of the larger ‘This Boy’ series of short BL anime. I think there’s three or four other ones in the series [they’re unconnected from each other story-wise, btw], but the only other one available on Crunchyroll is This Boy Suffers from Crystallization, As a warning, though, that that one’s pretty much about a teacher/student romance.

anonymous asked:

your shiro posts are great because i've noticed that in the talk about wanting shiro to just be able to rest and heal when he gets home, the black lion is reduced to a car or a bike instead of someone who cares for shiro and wants him to heal as much as anyone else. there’s no indication that he can't get rest while also being the leader; in general people seem to think a leader needs to be an unemotional machine and i have never understood it. it goes against the whole concept of the show.

I mean, just from what I’ve seen, it seems like both Shiro and Zarkon are people who have been damaged by the expectation that a leader must be an unfeeling pillar, and that would suggest something about Black herself.

Zarkon literally derides soft emotions (pity, mercy, compassion) as “weakness” and something rather seldom commented on him is that some of his most targeted and aggressive lashings-out have been whenever someone even insinuates he should take it easy. He cannot stand to be pitied or seen as anything but strong and he pretty much uses violence as a way to reinforce the image of himself as a conquering god-emperor.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that without his armor and helmet, when we see him recovering, he looks far more frail and vulnerable, and that this is the only time we’ve seen him without all his daunting armor on, or that Haggar is the only one permitted near his bedside.

Shiro is not remotely to that degree, but- he’s very much the therapist friend. He wants to invite the rest of the team to unburden themselves to him, but, when it comes to it… I don’t believe he ever talked to anyone about Sendak sending him into a near-dissociative episode. There’s a very specific and blatant hypocrisy to Shiro telling Allura that she needs to rest and take care of herself as a leader, when the only reason he knows she got up and tried to go back to working was because he was sitting there himself.

I do think Shiro needs to move away from that attitude but I think that Black is part of a key to that, because she understands where he’s coming from and quite possibly has that same problem herself. I mean- when Zarkon tries to manipulate the Black Lion via the druids, I stand by the idea that the pain Shiro experiences is Black’s pain.

Couple that with the fact that since the beginning of the show, Zarkon has been tracking them through the Black Lion, and it’s entirely possible that Zarkon has been quietly hurting Black the entire time she has been bonded to Shiro and she never once reached out to him for help. She only began opening up to Shiro about her own trauma during s2e7, when Shiro explicitly came to her and asked her to.

There’s a thread of self-sacrifice and self-denial to the Black Lion that runs through both of her paladins. They are people surrounded by those who care, or would care, and yet who are inclined to suffering in silence.

Frankly, I think there stands to be a wickedly fascinating dialogue if Shiro and Black explore these issues through one another- or through Shiro uncovering Zarkon’s history through what Black shows him. If maybe Zarkon’s whole start down a dark path was that he was grieving, or hurt in some manner, and tried to keep it to himself.

Maybe Zarkon’s hatred of “weak” emotions is because he feels that they were something that betrayed him or left his guard down at a vulnerable moment.

Possibly, Shiro learning that maybe he really, really should check into just how much he’s keeping bottled with the realization that with the right pressure, he could go exactly the way Zarkon did.
