Hi. I was flicking through the Rabiah scale, and I was somewhat distressed to see that Kamigawa was so low. While I understand the broad reasons why this could be (I read the FAQ!), I was wondering if I could possibly inquire as to more specifically the reasons for Kamigawa being so low on it. A Kamigawan Planeswalker was just in the story, so surely the concepts of the plane aren't TOO badly received...? I am sorry if this has already been answered; you have nearly five thousand pages of Q&A.

Imagine going to Ford and saying why don’t you remake the Edsel? There are so many advances that have been made since its first appearance. I’m sure you could do it so much better now.

Ford would most likely say that they only have so many opportunities to make a car and doing it successfully is difficult. Starting with something that bombed so spectacularly the first time they did it, is starting with a giant handicap.

They have so many cool cars they could do that they know their audience historically have been excited about, there’s just no need to take such a big risk.

AND NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT MICHELE AND SALA BC THEY WERE DAMN IMPORTANT IN THIS EPISODE. ASIDE FROM ALREADY BEING A PRETTY MUCH GROUNDBREAKING, BREAKING-THE-STEREOTYPE, FUCK-THAT-HETERONORMATIVITY ANIME, I LOVE HOW YURI ON ICE ALSO TOUCHES ON OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF LIKE THIS. MICKEY AND SALA’S RELATIONSHIP. SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO LET GO OF SOMEONE BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT’S BETTER FOR THE BOTH OF YOU AND IT’S GOING TO BE REALLY HARD AND I LOVE HOW YURI ON ICE PORTRAYS THIS. SO DAMN LOVE IT.

for the first time in my life, the salt isn’t from my personality but from my tears

OKAY LET’S TALK ABOUT YUURI NOW. I LOVE HIM EVEN MORE (IF THAT’S EVEN POSSIBLE). HE IS NONE OF THAT CRAP ‘I WISH VICTOR WAS HERE, I MISS HIM’ BUT HE KNOWS AND UNDERSTANDS THAT WHEREVER VICTOR MAY BE, HE’D ALWAYS BE WITH HIM AND THAT HIS PERFORMANCE DEPENDS ON THEM BOTH AND WOULD TURN OUT THE SAME EVEN IF VICTOR WAS PRESENT AND REMEMBER HOW IN EPISODE 7, THIS GUY WAS ALL LIKE VICTOR DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO BE A COACH AND STUFF? WELL IN THIS EPISODE DURING THE FS, HIS THOUGHTS SPIRAL TOWARDS WHY HE WAS STILL THERE : BECAUSE VICTOR SAW POTENTIAL IN HIM, BELIEVED IN HIM, SAW SOMETHING THAT SPARKED HIS ATTENTION AND YUURI REALIZED ALL OF THIS AND IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL AND I DON’T KNOW IF I HAVE MENTIONED THIS BUT I’M CRYING

let’s end with the ending because damn im crying even more why can’t all relationships be like this

OKAY SO ACCORDING TO MY CALCULATIONS, IT HAD BEEN LITERALLY ONE DAY (1) SINCE THEY SAW EACH OTHER AND THEY LITERALLY RAN LIKE I’M NOT EVEN MESSING AROUND, THEY SAW EACH OTHER THROUGH THAT GLASS WALL AND YUURI LITERALLY LEAPED INTO VICTOR’S OPEN ARMS AND SURPRISE, SURPRISE I CRIED AND GUYS THE HAND KISS IS SO IMPORTANT AND BEAR IN MIND THAT YUURI GENEREALLY SHIES AWAY FROM PDA AND THIS WAS AN AIRPORT IN ACTUAL RUSSIA AND NOPE, THEY DON’T CARE AND ALSO THE MUSIC DURING THIS WAS SO BEAUTIFUL AND FITTING AND MY HEART ACTUALLY SPED UP WHEN YUURI ASKED VICTOR TO BE HIS COACH TILL HE RETIRES BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT HE THOUGHT OF DURING THE FS LIKE HE KNEW WHATEVER HE WAS AT THAT MOMENT WAS BECAUSE OF VICTOR AND IT UNSETTLED AND MAYBE EVEN SCARED HIM TO THINK THAT VICTOR MIGHT RETURN BACK TO RUSSIA AND VICTOR’S REACTION WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO REASSURE HIM AND THAT’S WHY HE EVEN SHED A FEW TEARS BECAUSE THIS IS LOVE MES AMIS, THIS IS LOVE. AND THE LAST LINE ABSOLUTELY SHATTERED MY POOR LITTLE SHIPPER HEART (self spon ayy sorry) BECAUSE “LET’S WIN GOLD TOGETHER AT THE GRAND PRIX FINAL” I MEAN LET’S CRY, CRY AND THEN CRY SOME MORE OH GOD LOOK AROUND, LOOK AROUND AT HOW LUCKY WE ARE TO BE ALIVE RIGHT NOW (ALBEIT THIS IS 2016) (hamilton ayy) THEY ARE IN LOVE AND THEY’VE GOT TO WIN THIS TOGETHER, AS ONE.

10 Things You Wish the SWG Archive Could Do ...

(… That It Actually Does)

Earlier this year, we asked for feedback on a survey about the SWG site. Our software is aging and we face the challenging decision of where to take the site next. Wherever we go, we want it to be useful to the authors and readers who use our site for sharing Silmarillion fan fiction.

But as I read through the suggestions for what we could do to make the site better, I kept bumping into wish-list items that the site already does. So in this month’s SWG newsletter, I wrote an article called “10 Things You Wish the SWG Archive Could Do (That It Actually Does).” I’m going to reprint that article separately in an attempt to reach as many SWG users as possible.

So if you ever wished that the SWG archive would send you alert emails, let you make rec lists, allow you to copy from MS Word and keep your formatting, comment on Reference articles, generate story stats, and post images and podfic, read on!

The expression of total insult ~ Chögyam Trungpa
http://justdharma.com/s/bsegj

In reality, nothing can save us from a state of chaos or confusion unless we have acknowledged it and actually experienced it. Otherwise, even though we may be in the midst of chaos, we don’t even notice it, although we are subject to it. On the path of meditation, the first real glimpse of our confusion and the general chaos is when we begin to feel uncomfortable. We feel that something is a nuisance. Something is bugging us constantly.

What is that? Eventually we discover that we are the nuisance. We begin to see ourselves being a nuisance to ourselves when we uncover all kinds of thought problems, emotional hang-ups, and physical problems in meditation. Before we work with anyone else, we have to deal with being a nuisance to ourselves. We have to pull ourselves together. We might get angry with ourselves, saying, “I could do better than this. What’s wrong with me? I seem to be getting worse. I’m going backward.” We might get angry with the whole world, including ourselves. Everything, the entire universe, becomes the expression of total insult. We have to relate to that experience rather than rejecting it. If you hope to be helpful to others, first you have to work with yourself.

See, I’m really digging the idea (which I have no reason to suspect would ever be implemented) of having separate “factions” or “chambers” or other sub-sets of your clan able to be nominally designated, because I really want to make a set of dragons based on Felix Kramer’s Strangers but they’re just… not allowed to hang out with my regular dragons.  Here are some late-night thrown-together-ass examples; I could do them better, you know, if I was for REAL going to do the thing.  (The non-FR images here are, as I said, Felix Kramer’s, and the descriptions are paraphrased from their material.  Like seriously go look at that link, though.)

“Benzidrovi.”  Appears in quiet non-residential interior spaces with high light levels and minimal decorative embellishment.  Smells of rubbing alcohol.  Non-ambulatory.  Contact induces the involuntary addition of excess zeroes to numerals in performed arithmetic, which the afflicted sensitive may recognize as inaccurate but be unable to correct.

“Ferorodrevi.”  Appears at dusk in a variety of outdoor environments; will not enter interiors.  Extremely durable.  Runs, jumps and climbs its way continuously across urban landscapes.  Creates rust on contact with susceptible metals.  Hunts and devours other Strangers; no interest in sensitives.

“Tsinidrinzi.”  Appears in alleys and covered bridges during overcast or foggy weather.  Moves aimlessly alone but accumulated packs steadily converge on a single prominent point, such as a monument or tall building.  Proximity causes temporary disorientation and lightheadedness.

“Cevidroni.”  Appears in damaged, abandoned houses.  Disconsolate.  Shreds paper and cardboard.  Presence causes the generation of varying amounts of water within a small area.  Will attack sensitives who come near, but tends to self-destruct in the process.  Proximity induces long-term anxiety regarding aging, disease and death, and, in a small percentage of those affected, an inability to detect moisture.

we have been watching gilmore girls russian dub all day and like. in places it is decent but i could do so much better. like colloquialisms are rendered literally, серебрянный лис in russian is not a set phrase the way silver fox is in english, there are a million other phrases with which to indicate “привлекательный немолодой мужчина” without calquing a term that doesn’t make sense to a russian-speaking audience. i mean it is a любительский перевод but still

Loved ur blog until you started self promoting yourself

I’m sorry that a leaf emoji at the bottom of the same posts I’ve always posted bothers you so much that you stopped liking my blog. TBH I started doing it so I could keep better track of pictures I’ve already posted so I don’t double post as often so it’s truly not about self promotion
