idk about this :

I know we always see McCree comforting Hanzo, but imo there isn’t quite enough of the other way around

because McCree’s done some fucked-up things, probably still does a few that are morally dubious just by nature of being a vigilante

and we think of him having that PTSD, the nightmares, the things he just can’t shake ten, fifteen, twenty years later

and Hanzo’s–bad at words, bad at a lot of things when it comes to emotions, but he at least understands; he can’t offer the kinds of words or reassurance that McCree often gives him, but damned if he’ll let the man who’s helped him get so far suffer without so much as an attempt

so all he can do, really, is be physically present–take his hand, maybe walk him through panic exercises, hold him if McCree’ll allow it this time, hug McCree against his chest and run his fingers through his hair, things that don’t always help Hanzo but will cut through McCree’s distress and ground him again

they fall asleep like that sometimes, I think

Hanzo often feels inadequate, because all he can do is sit and act like a wall when McCree’s upset, but he has no idea just how much McCree needs that from him

anonymous asked:

do you also hate it when people say "your work is like anime"

(pt 2) i don’t think i quite understood it, but you seemed to. is anime bad? is it a shameful art form?

i related to the post painfully well bc most of the people who make that “it looks like anime” comment are the ones who say it in a belittling tone. this in turn affects artists who spend years curating their own art styles to associate “anime” as a degrading rating that downplays our individual styles and chucks it into the “kiddish” category by the viewer.

most people (me included) don’t like to openly announce/admit that we like watching anime when we’re out of the safe zones of our fandoms, in the real world. the stigma of it is something we know that needs to be changed, but change takes time.

i was inspired by [krisna’s introduction of their beautiful boy]  to make kind of a, uh, ‘meet my pillars of eternity watcher’ blurb?

saffron is a nature godlike who was born and sold by her elven parents into slavery in aedyr but freed from slavery in ixamitl when she was sixteen; she was a beekeeper and painter until she took a detour to the dyrwood to chase a mage who took advantage of her friendliness to drug her and saw off her horn, which she is very anxious to get back. saf’s had cipher abilities for as long as she can remember, but dislikes automatically being able to sense how other people are feeling - she never really used her cipher abilities until being thrown into conflict in the dyrwood, but necessity dictates. otherwise, she usually wields greatswords and has the biceps to match - in slight comical contrast to the fact that she’s pretty short, even by elven height standards.

despite being viewed by many of her past masters (and even regular people after being freed) as dumb like the animals she resembles, saf is very intelligent and has cultivated a very laidback attitude towards most things in life. she dislikes yelling, but can and will step into situations when she feels the need. despite being very empathetic to people’s problems and emotions, she has pretty bad issues with letting people close to her, as her past experiences have informed her that most people only care about her in the context of thinking she’s strange and exotic - not because they actually like her as a person. she is still warm and friendly towards most and goes out of her way to assist people because she believes that (almost) everyone deserves help when they need it, but has issues actually believing that anyone genuinely cares about her.

Mae is Mentally Ill and (a) God is (Probably) Real

ok a thing I keep seeing on Steam discussion boards and in general is people saying Mae isn’t a) mentally ill and/or b) experiencing supernatural phenomena. so let’s fucking break it down

Okay, so I’m rewatching the Will-free moments of 4,722 Hours, and like, Jemma spent weeks next to the pond with the monster plant. WEEKS. Which, you know, is smart, since it’s the only water source that she could find. 

She says something about losing her way to the entry site, which means that she tried to find her way back to where she left her necklace, and she couldn’t find it. Basically, she’s consigned to camping out at the pond until she can figure out her next move.

And then, she goes to investigate a noise, walks what, fifty feet(?) away from her campsite, and literally falls into Will’s cave place thing.

I mean, it makes sense that Will would stay near a water source. But he was right next door to a human woman for WEEKS, and didn’t give her any sign that she was there. Did he not need water at all that whole time?

AND THEN, according to the deleted scenes, when he does actually meet her and learns her story, he hands her the necklace that she left behind. Just hands it right over.

So did Will know she was there the whole time? Did he assume that she was Hive? I mean, he would have seen a young woman sitting next to a fire, talking to herself. That’s not a thing that scary sand monsters do. They certainly don’t keep it up for days and weeks and months.

And it seems to me that at one point, Will must have tried to figure out where she came from, right? Or maybe he just stumbled upon a necklace by accident? At the bottom of an arrow made of rocks? An arrow that was clearly made by a human and points in the general direction of the pond? 

Like?

I mean, I love Jemma for 85% of that episode. I loved her most of all in the pre-Will parts where she survives on her own. I also love her when she tries to find her way home despite Will the Downer. But we all know nothing this episode doesn’t match up with the rest of season 3 (Hive and the sand monster act completely differently; Will is apparently a completely different person with a different background; Jemma’s reactions don’t line up with her experiences). But, I mean, it doesn’t even make sense internally. 

They got such praise for this episode, and there is some justification for that because Elizabeth’s performance was fantastic, and we did get a lot of great character moments. But between the character-assassination of an ending, the way that the episode fits into the season, and the way the episode fits together as a whole, you really have to wonder what the heck everyone in the writing room was thinking.
