idk how i feel about the middle one but its not gonna get any better so

anonymous asked:

sooo i don't really have a question but i would like an analysis of the new amazingphil video if you have one,, or just your favorite moments, idk i just want you to talk about it, i love your "reviews"

hahaha of course i’ll talk about it!!!!! it’s interesting bc when i first watched this i was actually like not that into it??? it just felt like 10 very calm and chill mins of dnp hanging out which is obviously great but i think i was sort of distracted so i was like mmmm it wasn’t as entertaining as their usual collabs, esp bc on first watch i was like, dan keeps going for these weird dark jokes about torture n maiming and it’s all v Standard Fare but then i thought about it more and realized ,, if this isn’t the biggest evidence yet about how far they’ve come and evolved since last year then idk what is??? like i just can’t believe it’s gotten to the point where i could watch 10 minutes of dan softly playing around with phil’s hair and both of them being a bit calmer and more muted in front of the camera, freely touching each other and joking around about more Mature Themes (hats off to the dildo joke and the “safety word” bit) and have all of that feel completely STANDARD and unsurprising!!! it’s just crazy to me that they’ve normalized these behaviors so much that a video like this could feel so completely expected and ~chill~ 

but then i watched it a second and third time (bc duh) when i was less distracted and there really were so many little moments that stood out to me and so many cute smiles and soft lil jokes that made me wanna melt and it was all just so good. it’s nowhere near their funniest or most captivating video but it’s just vv vv v v soft and chill and natural. when comparing it to something like pastel edits which is probs a close parallel in terms of them playing dress up and touching each other a bit in direct response to a fan request, you can see how this one is far softer and a little bit less performed–they seem less ‘on’ for lack of a better term, and a lot more laid back, dan doesn’t spend as much time demeaning the idea or teasing the fan base for wanting it, and all of it is just so enjoyable to watch. i’ve included (way too many) timestamps below (plus way too many screenshots, as usual, of stupidly cute moments ugh): 

  • 5 seconds in this is already alarmingly cute w dan grumbling behind the pillow that phil wants to give him a creative nickname and phil giggling and looking down at him when he starts complaining
  • :17 dan gives phil permission to just call him dan and phil looks cute n happy about it
  • :27 dan needs to reiterate he was a nerd in school
  • :34 ‘japes’ k dan
  • :48 i live for the way phil looks so earnest and excited when he asks dan why he decided to ‘embrace the curls’ like he genuinely wants to hear dan explain this .. phil is genuinely obsessed w dan’s curls he wasn’t lyin when he said that in the pastel edits vid :(
  • 1:00 i hope phil was the one who chose that photo as an example of dan’s hair looking good in a pic,, phil thinks dan’s best look is his crunchy 2013 leather jacket n his scoop neck t shirt … #confirmed
  • 1:10 ‘you’ve left me alone!’ calm down phil he’s right next to u
  • 1:12 did phil pick that photo too ..  the one of dan in his tank top n hair straightened to within an inch of its life and silvery earrings making a pouty face ,,, lmao i love that he’s picking the cringiest emo-est throwbacks possible
  • 1:54 phil’s like ‘i thought we could eat 400 crusts to see if my hair goes curly’ and it’s altogether a lame joke but dan is staring at him like he’s the most beautiful person on earth. i’d be uncomfortable if i wasn’t so busy melting. then phil stares at dan giggling and it’s all a bit much for me
  • 2:41 ‘what’d happen if i balded you right now?’ dan is so concerned for phil’s well-being that he forgets how to grammar
  • 2:45 the fuckin dildo joke i s2g why are they making sly references to dildos in a g-rated hair curling video why did phil immediately follow dan saying ‘that looks like something else’ by going ‘ooo’ and shoving the curler near dan’s mouth why are they gross
  • 3:21 dan unnecessarily rubbing the curler all over phil’s shoulder and neck … ok
  • 3:41 phil sounds so serious when he asks dan if he thinks the curly hair will suit him, like he really needs dan’s Hot Take on this important issue but dan’s just shuts him down hahaha. i feel like this is reminiscent of the faceapp vid in which dan was completely NOT DOWN with any alteration to phil’s appearance whatsoever bc (vom) he thinks phil is perf jst the way he is (i might actually be sick) 
  • 3:47 idk why but i’m obsessed w phil saying ‘dan, don’t mess about with it’ and dan responding ‘i’m nOT’ in his whiny voice w his eyes all wide. cute
  • 3:56 lmao dan bringing up babuse (i can’t type that without thinking of ‘let me see that babussy’ i hate the fucking internet) and saying it was the last time he was on this bed, i am living for these bants and also phil’s expression of mock horror
  • 4:08 ‘curl me up, bess’
  • 4:11 dan’s going for ‘teen nick jonas but without the face’ his crush is going strong i see,, and then he can’t even follow through and tell phil his face doesn’t compare to nick jonas’s so he turns it into a joke about burning his face instead, nice save bro
  • 4:27 THIS KILLED ME THEYRE JST TALKING N DAN JUST BRUSHES ASIDE A BIT OF PHILS FRINGE FOR NO REASON AT ALL HE JST WANTS TO PLAY W HIS HAIR ITS CUTE N IM DYIN
  • 5:01 something about this bit when dan’s like ‘got a whole clump it’s undignified’ and their proximity, the way their arms are sort of pressed together and it looks like dan could be resting his hand on phil’s leg and dan is also sort of just looking down at phil ,,, Good
  • 5:08 when phil kinda squeaks and pulls away all of a sudden i feel like dan is legit actually concerned he could burn phil as evidenced by his voice going all high pitched when he’s like ‘you can’t do that!!!!’
  • 5:13 more completely unnecessary dan playing around w phil’s fringe n brushing it away. it goes on for like 8 seconds plus there’s a jump cut in the middle of it lmao,,, ugh the way he touches phil’s hair is so soft it makes me feel things
  • 5:32 ‘gonna pork you up phil’ does dan know the meaning of ‘pork’ as a verb ??  ? ? ??? ??????  for reference:
  • 5:36 ‘my life is flashing before my eyes’ ‘ooo is it really boring’ dan is showing yet again that he flirts like a five year old who pulls their crush’s pigtails in the playground grOW UP MATE. phil loves it tho
  • 6:03 omg idk why but i LOVED phil saying ‘i’m finding you so disturbing right now’ it feels so authentic??? something about the way he phrased it is so funny??????? like he genuinely needs dan to take it down a notch w the grim humor lmao
  • 6:47 ‘we need a safety word’ oh my god these boring vanilla fucks call a safe word a ‘safety word’ could they be LAMER hahaha (in all seriousness i can’t even believe that’s a joke dan went for at all let alone on this channel and that phil just chuckled n went along with it what the fuck what a time we live in honestly,, the flirting and touching and the whole premise of a dan-curls-phil’s-hair video is already so much but, like, let’s just add a fucking allusion to bdsm into the mix while we’re at it!!!!!!! wtf!!!)
  • the whole sped up montage of dan doing the curling is just rife w gratuitous hair touching so like obvi i immediately turned the speed down to .5 and just sat back to enjoy it (also @kay-okays uploaded a slowed down version here if ya wanna look at that or like bookmark it for ur own uses ,,  whatever ur into m8)
  • 7:18 those two gentle pats that dan gives to the back of phil’s head before phil looks at his finished hair … so fucking adorable bc it’s the way dan pats down his own hair when he’s fixing it pls save me
  • 7:29 dan obvi needs to make it a point to emphasize they have the same hair again as has been his constant refrain about their haircuts for the last like 3 years (tbh i’m convinced that he literally misses having the same hair as phil which is gross and just as sappy as i’d expect from him) and in order to demonstrate how ALIKE they are again he proceeds to mirror phil playing w his fringe bc why not .. 
  • ‘this was the only thing that was separating us’ PLS
  • 7:38 dan’s Hot Take 2.0: ‘you look like a cool australian surfer … like a weird goth one that has never been to the beach’
  • 8:14 dan asserts on phil’s behalf that phil ‘needs’ the edge of his emo fringe and phil immediately agrees. rip to anyone who was hoping quiff!phil might be on the horizon
  • 8:39 dan goes defensive about how he could’ve done a better job and phil immediately jumps in to say that he thinks dan did well in the most sincere voice of all time, accompanied w cute/soft smile
  • and then he cuts dan off entirely to remind him that he didn’t burn phil’s face off and to v fervently thank him (he litro NODS while he thanks him it’s so SERIOUS) and then dan does some weird touchy thing to phil’s chest or arm or both and phil decides to boop dan’s cheek and you should really SLOW IT DOWN bc when you do, you notice it’s more of like a lil squeeze as opposed to just a v light tap and it’s gROSS:
  • 8:59 then, since this video has far too much dan gratuitously touching phil and phil was surely feeling deprived, phil reaches over to give dan a ‘zayn curl’ and play w dan’s fringe a bit n at this point i’ve had Enough of this cute ass shit
  • 9:20 dan couldn’t just leave it there, he needs to take a moment to re-assert the ~dnp don’t go outside or go to parties or talk to people Ever~ branding just in case ANYONE forgot (but also seems like a low key way for dan to gently remind the audience not to get attached to this in any way bc it will probs never happen again)
  • 9:40 phil dubs dan the “original curly man” n idk how to feel about this but i suppose that is a fitting conclusion to this absolute roller coaster of emotions 

ugh. just a really great video. i’m sorry this post is massive,, there’s jst so much here and i needed to have pics of ALL OF IT

(dan curls my hair!

Coach Steven Rewrite

I had a bunch of ideas for how to make this episode better, along with a redesign of Sugilite, so I’ll start out my rewrites with this one, because I feel the episodes before it are fine. I’ll be rewriting a bunch of other Steven Universe episodes, too.

zombie apocalypse voltron au part 1

in honor of the walking dead season 3 getting released the other day or so. i will write angsty headcannons ft the voltron crew. and possible reader. Part one will center around Lance because I realized I was writing a lot for him and decided to spilt it into parts.

It’s summer when the outbreak happens. Lance lives in Arizona, he’s seventeen at the time.

Lance

  • Lance was celebrating his youngest sister’s, Elizabeth, sixth birthday when his tio came running into the house, his smoking break cut short. Yelling at everyone to turn on the television. Lance was curious, because his tio was very determined to get a smoke in and wouldn’t cut it short for something stupid. So immediately he had everyone’s attention.
  • Lance’s mom cut on the tv and changed it to the news channel. The news anchors were talking about a weird disease outbreak that was affecting the recently deceased. They were told to stay indoors for now and lock the doors. The whole family was unsure what to do or think, the party was cut short and everyone went home. No one went past the fence to see what was on the other side. The neighborhood was eerily quiet and that lasted a few more days until Lance’s dad decided it was time to leave.
  • They were running low on food and he was going to go to the grocery store and visit Lance’s uncle. They waited anxiously for around two hours and then Lance’s dad came running into the house holding his neck, blood seeping through his fingers. They immediately all rushed to him, and his mother was cleaned the wound and trying to calm his dad down.
  • His dad told them about how the grocery store was completely abandoned along with the roads. It’s like everyone had ran away, it was a ghost town. So he went to his brother’s home and there was blood on the doorsteps, and that immediately caught his attention so be rushed inside to see if his brother was okay. His brother was on the ground hugging his knees, blood all over him. He reached down to help him up and was immediately attacked. His dad was trying to push him off but he was stronger then him. But he bit into his neck. His dad just remembers pushing him off of him and running back into the car.
  • Lance doesn’t know what to think. He’s shaking a little and his little sister, Elizabeth tugs on his sleeve and asks him what’s happening. He doesn’t even know what to say, and he responded truthfully, that he doesn’t know. His dad and mom go to their room to talk privately about what’s happening.
  • He doesn’t see them for the rest of the night.
  • Him and his older sister Gabriel have to make dinner and keep the younger two, Elizabeth and Andre from bothering their parents and keep them quiet. Lance wonders if the oldest out of all of them, Alex is okay.
  • At one point in the night Lance thinks he hears screaming and something slamming into the ground in the next room. But he blames it on his over reactive imagination.
  • He awakes to screaming the next morning. He immediately shoots up from the bed and runs into the other room to find his sister on the ground clutching her hand as blood slowly seeps from the wound. She’s sobbing and yells at Lance to run away with the others.
  • Lance hears her loud and clear but he still makes his way towards the room. Immediately upon entering his mother and father jump on top of Gabriel and she’s screaming. Andre and Elizabeth are sobbing and screaming. Lance yells at them to stay back.
  • His sister manages to push the two off and she yells at Lance. He tries to rush in but she pushes him back. She tells him to shut the door and leave with the kids immediately. To find their other family members. She slams the door shut.
  • All he can hear is screaming and the sound of flesh tearing. He slides down the door and brings his knees to his chest and chokes out a sob. His siblings are shaking and run towards him. He has blood on his shirt. He’s shaking and tears are running down his face.
  • The screaming stops after what seems like forever. He can hear groaning coming from the other side. The three of them stay huddled together sobbing and shaking quietly for an hour after it all happened. Lance can’t let his little brother and sister get hurt.
  • He stands up slowly and tells them to grab a backpack and pack only what they need. They are before 1pm, before nightfall. They nod and slowly get up to do so.
  • Lance heads to his room, he cleans the blood off of him and cleans his face. He throws off the bloody shirt, he can’t even look at it. He grabs a backpack and packs a few extra pairs of clothes. Some small items that hold a special meaning to him. Family photos. Essential things. He then goes into the kitchen and packs the remaining food and grabs water bottles. His siblings come into the room bags packed and dressed out of their pajamas.
  • Lance tells them to sit on the couch for a minute while he does some last things. He grabs a pen and paper and begins writing, “My mother, father, and sister are in this room. Please don’t hurt them.”. He tapes it to the bedroom door and even goes as far as to go out back and grab planks of wood and puts it over the door. To make sure that they don’t break down the door.
  • He picks up the house phone and he knows that the line went down a few days ago but he just wants to try one more time before they leave. He dials his big brother’s number, of course nothing goes through. He lets out a sigh and grabs the car keys and motions for his siblings to follow.
  • He tries reassuring his little brother and sister that he will make sure that they are okay and he won’t let anything happen to them. He locks the door and looks at his childhood home one last time. His eyes start watering again but he turns around an heads for the SUV.
  • He fumbles around for a minute trying to find a map and eventually finds one. He decides to head to the next town over. It would take about an hour to get there. The car ride there is quiet and gloomy. The roads are empty and the sun is already starting to set.
  • The next town isn’t any better, he does find one person. A middle aged man, who lost everyone the first two days. The man calls the disease infected dead Muertos a simple name but Lance knows what it means. The man’s name is David and he tells them that he’s heading towards the South. It gets cold down there and there’s less people so maybe they didn’t catch the outbreak.
  • Lance decides that that is where they’ll go. Even if there is a tiny chance that the outbreak didn’t reach down there then he’s willing to take that risk. As long as his siblings will be okay. The man ask if they have a weapon and Lance realizes that he never brought one. He shakes his head slowly and the man kindly offers a 9mm pistol and two boxes of ammo. Lance refuses to take it, the man says that he has a whole bag full of ammo and that he’ll be fine. He tells that he will need it to protect his siblings and himself, the world has already gone to hell and it’s only been two weeks since this all happened. He also points Lance in the direction of a Hunting store that has a lot of weapons and ammo, and says that he should go there before heading out. Lance thanks him and gives a a few cans of food as thanks. They spilt ways and wish each other luck and safety.
  • Lance keeps Elizabeth and Andre close by his side he holds the gun tightly in his hand. He’s shot a gun before, he lives in the Southwest so of course he knows how to use one. He doesn’t want to use it though and prays that he never has to. They walk down the quiet and abandoned streets towards the hunting supply store. Seems like most of the supplies has been stolen. But he manages to find a few good things. Three hunting knives, he hands one to both his siblings telling them to only use in case of an emergency and when he’s not around. He finds another 9mm pistol hidden under a pile of cardboard and he finds more ammo. He takes whatever food is left and quickly leaves to get back on the road.
  • The first three months went by well, they encountered only nice people and traded things. They had just entered Texas, which it was slow progress but he didn’t want to rush anything or push the kids too hard. They also encountered a few Muertos but Lance learned that they were slow and the three were able to outrun. Andre turned eleven during those three months and they made the best birthday they could with the situation. Lance was even able to find a action figure that Andre was talking about before this all happened.
  • Their luck ran out when they encountered two older men. The two men held both of siblings at gun point demanding for Lance to hand over everything and he’d let them live. Lance couldn’t do that, it put the three in a lot danger. They got a few good punches on Lance. But one of them slipped and that was Lance’s opportunity. He didn’t know what came over him but he ran for his gun and shot both of them dead. He was shaking and sobbing, he didn’t want to kill anyone. His siblings were the one comforting him. They left that area immediately.
  • Another month went by before they met another guy just as they were about to leave Texas. He was around Lance’s age, his name was Hunk. He was kind and asked if he could tag along with Lance. Lance hesitantly agreed to let Hunk tag along, he somehow trusted someone he barely met and so did his siblings. The three of them and Hunk immediately clicked. It was nice having someone else, Hunk was much bigger and stronger then Lance. Hunk was much more mature and observant then Lance. The group headed towards Tennessee.
Be More Michael!

a/n: At first, I can’t see any situation where Michael takes a squip. But seeing how I put an (with a name and everything) au out there I have it a shot by shimmying around some very circumstantial stuff. 
summary: Michael just wanted a tictac
w/c:1823
warning:
VERY QUESTIONABLE PLOT?? drug mentioned (mainly pot and squip)


“Wait so it’s like drugs?” Michael muttered as they walked side by side down to the Payless. He rummaged through his hoodie’s pockets and began picking at the lint he found in every crevice. “Are you sure you wanna take drugs? You know JUST stopped gagging when you take a drag of the blunt” Michael winked at him, sticking out his tongue adding a bit more insult to his tease.

Jeremy turned up his nose and stiffened his spine trying to make himself look taller. “It’s not drugs…it’s a computer…or whatever, I don’t know how to explain it. Rich had this cool song…” He waved his hands in front of him. “It’s from Japan.” His voice went up a few octaves before cracking, trying to recreate the feel.

Michael nodded a bit, “sounds legit.” The closer they got the more Jeremy began to perspire beside him. “Dude stop walking like someone who’s about to make a drug deal.”

“W-What” Jeremy flinched then looked around nervously. “I-I look like someone who’s going to make a deal!”

“That or you look like someone who’s about to take a major dump in his pants.” Michael clapped his hands on Jeremy’s shoulders and gave him a small squeeze. “Just be chill.”

“That’s MY problem, I don’t know how to be CHILL, Michael.” He hung his head a bit and sighed. “…I wish I can be more like you.” He chuckled a bit. “You’re always pretty chill.”

“Be more like me then, walk in there and trade in hundreds of dollars for a possibility of awesomeness…or a complete and utter waste of time.”

“I don’t think anyone could be more Michael, Michael” Jeremy’s blue eyes disarmed Michael’s heart and he felt all his taunts and best friend banter go out the window and into speeding traffic. “Say…uh…you usually buy your weed…mind…ya know…” He swayed a bit, pulling a very sweet Heere smile.

How could Michael say no? With a few groans and eye rolls, Jeremy slapped the bills into Michael’s hand went to wait for him inside of Spencer’s. Michael walked in with a little more sauve than Jeremy but he couldn’t shake the small voice that reminded him he was packing 600$ of money that didn’t belong to him. The drug deal was suddenly weighing on him a bit harder than his usually dime-bag deal. Still, Jeremy was counting on him and he pushed through the Payless and walked over to an exceptionally greasy looking stock boy behind the counter. “I’m here for the…stuff.” Michael leaned up against the desk, keeping his face turned away from the employee.

“The stuff?” He repeated in a monotone voice.

“Yea-yea man you know the stuff, that stuff, that special stuff.” Michael waved his hand coolly, he even popped the hood of his hoodie up adding to the effect. He was so suave, Jeremy would cream himself if he saw him. Wait—why did that come to mind. Suddenly Michael felt himself flush and a hand come to his mouth. Suddenly he felt the box nudge his arm and he looked down. So there it was…600 dollars worth of drugs. He opened it up to check and his face fell… “My…dude…” he muttered opening the box fully “what the hell is this?”

“Size eight-n-a half red pumps from the back room.” He shrugged, “We ran out a week ago, I’ve been holding onto it for the right price.”

“Do I look like I’m here for a size eight heel?” He pulled up the shoe by the heel and began to wave it around.

The stockman shrugged then waved his hand over his face, “probably and maybe a tictac.”

Michael groaned and leaned in a bit to the counter against the stockboy’s wishes. “I’m here for…the squip?” He whispered watching the man’s eyes go from dull to very steely and cold. He gave Michael a nod and went to the backroom. After two long minutes of waiting he returned with a regular looking shoe box. Michael opened it up a second time half expecting another pair of shoes when he noticed a baggie with a long, off gray pill inside. “So…this is it?” This tiny thing was worth 600$?

“400.” The guy grunted, Michael blinked.

“Wait w-”
“You heard me, four. Hundred.”

There was no arguing with that, Michael handed over the money saving Jeremy two hundred dollars and getting the drugs for him. He was going to be his hero. “Alright, oh can I have a tictac too?” He breathed into his closed hand and wondered if he had severe sushi breath.

“Here take it with Red Dew, and also, before you go I gotta tell you that–” He handed over the mint then realized Jenna was strolling over. “We’re all out!”

“Of…shoes?” She shook her head a bit then looked at Michael.

“Right.” The stock boy turned his attention to Jenna and left Michael to his devices. Michael didn’t seem to think there was anything else he needed to know. A drug was a drug and from what he knew pills got ingested. A part of him did worry though…his brother and his father were big on the war against drugs. His brother more so he was turning into Michael’s police man when it came to his future. He made his way towards the Spencer’s, thumbing the tictac in his hand while he examined the pill some more.

“Well lil buddy, you’re gonna make my buddy super cool…” He chuckled talking to the small pill. “Which shouldn’t be too hard, Jeremy is already the coolest, but I guess sharing that kind of cool-a-tude with the rest of the world won’t be bad. After all” Michael felt his smile soften a bit. “After, all Christine won’t be able to resist him once she gets to know him.”

For a second Michael thought about…well what if he didn’t give this to Jeremy. Nothing would change, he wouldn’t have to share Jeremy with anyone. No one would have to know how Jeremy was awesome at Mario Kart, or the fact he held the n64 controller WRONG by using that weird middle handle. Or the way he wrinkled his nose right before he laughed like he was trying to fight it back. No one had to know that Jeremy could name the best 80s B-rate horror films in order of blood content. No one had to know that Jeremy had a small mole on his hip that as a kid his father would say was his tickle button. No one had to know the Jeremy Michael knew…He held the pill in his hand feeling like he could crush it in his palm…then sighed, stuffing it in his pocket.

It would crush Jeremy. It would suck if Jeremy was unhappy. He bit his bottom lip and smiled, feeling his muscles relax with defeat. If this made Jeremy happy… well then Michael didn’t need any more reason than that. After all what were bros for? He smirked as he watched Jeremy narrowly avoid half of the anime merch, even with his back to it, Michael knew he was probably eyeing some shirt or poster. “Jeeeer” Michael sang as he walked through the store. “I got your drugs.”

“MICHAEL” Jeremy shrieked cupping both hands at his mouth. “Don’t! SAY!THAT!” He hissed, turning red from the tips of his ears down to his neck.

“Tehe.” Michae chuckled beneath his hands. “Alright, alright, oh and I saved you 200$.”

“Wow, and here was worried I blew ALL of my money.” Jeremy opened the box and blinked. There was no pill, his face went pale for a second when Michael pulled his hand from his pocket and presented him with the small white pill. “Jesus, Michael you scared me!”

“Is it ok for a Jewish kid to swear to Jesus?” Jeremy shrugged a bit and it forced a small laugh out of Michael as his friend looked at the pill. “Well…there it is, cool in a capsule. You ready?”

“You wanna split it?” Jeremy asked his eyes on it, this was going to change his life. He could feel it.

“I don’t think it works like that…plus I like knowing when you’re cool, you’re gonna owe me.” He winked. “You gotta drink that with Mountain Dew, by the way.”

“Why?” Jeremy didn’t mind but it felt like a strange combination.

“No clue, just do it.” Michael was ready to watch Jeremy take his first steps into drug induced popularity when his phone buzzed. He snatched it out of his hoodie pocket and pouted. “I gotta run, brother is coming home tomorrow and I have to help mom clean out his room.”

“I didn’t think Ryan would be back so soon, isn’t he like…in college?”

“Yea he’s only coming for a short while before finals hit him. Then we won’t hear from him for another few weeks.” Michael shrugged, “sooo that means tomorrow night, we’re hanging at your place!”

With a ruffle of Jeremy’s short, tuffed brown hair Michael was off. He didn’t hear much from Jeremy after that, Michael felt like asking how it went and whether he was alright. However he was probably enjoying his new popularity, more importantly his mom had him carry down boxes of junk that had been storing in Ryan’s room to the basement, Aka Michael’s man cave. “Are we done yet, MA?” He called from down stairs feeling grungier than usual.

“Si~” She sang from the kitchen.

Michael slumped into his beanbag and stared at the second one beside him. He wondered if Jeremy would be too cool for video games? No, that was unlikely. Jeremy would be himself, just…maybe less sweaty and better breath. “Ah… right.” He dug his hands into his pocket and found his tictac. He popped it into his mouth and rolled it around in his tongue. It wasn’t right, no mint flavor and it was surprisingly sleeker than he thought.

“Michael, tienes hambre? (Michae are you hungry?)” his mother called from upstairs.

“Nah Ma I’m fine-aH” He spoke while his tongue was still testing the strange pill in his mouth. He felt the tictac roll down his throat and in a moment of pure shock he reached for his soda and chugged it down dislodging the small object from his throat canal.  “Fuck…” He hissed, gulping making sure he was not going to choke on a tictac. What a lame death that would be.

Michael took off his glasses and rubbed his watery eyes. The moment past and he reached for his phone realizing he had a missed call from Jeremy. Probably called while he was helping his mother. His hand paused when he heard, so clearly a voice say.

Calibrating Cerebral functions

“Huh…” Michael looked around and stared at his TV which was very clearly off.

Identifying …Michael Mell…Self confident, glorified…loser.

“Wait woah who said that, I am not a glorified loser! … I’m a regular loser with great qualities.” He spoke back to the disembodied voice.

Well, then regular loser Michael. This…is going to hurt.

And it did.

I got an ask about my comic process so I figured I’d answer it separately coz it might get long haha. I have no idea what I’m doing! So don’t take this as gospel, it’s just what I do and how I roll.

1. Planning! Generally I write down a bunch of one sentence or couple word points. They don’t even have to be plot points, they’re just stuff I want to happen at one point or another in the story. I’d show you my notebook but it is 100% spoilers lmao. But say for Chapter 1, notes would be like - meets jude - loses bag - is ambushed- can’t speak - is let in the house - runs from zombies - other people. Something like that. I usually do a couple chapters of notes at a time, because you can see these notes are SUPER vague, and that way I can move things around so they affect the story more. A lot of times I rearrange ‘reveals’ or information so they impact each other more than having them be in different orders, if that makes sense. I don’t write any dialogue or script, apart from one or two lines I might definitely want to be in a scene or chapter.

2. Shitty roughs! I approach my roughs like I approach storyboards - a bucnh of establishing shots and poses, and then cut down what you don’t need. Since a lot of my comics are dialogue, gestures and facial expressions are pretty important. I do most of my roughs in a 4x5 2$ sketchbook I got from Daiso lmao, 

You can see I scribble things out constantly, which I think is important! I’ve ditched entire pages of stuff because they weren’t working or I thought of something better, and it’s important to not be totally married to an idea. I don’t really use templates or anything either, coz it’s easier to just draw in panels as you go and resize them later. Since I don’t do scripts or plans, this is where I pretty much write everything. I’m not sure what kind of tips to give here, but I definitely say all of my dialogue out loud to myself and wander around acting… which feels and looks dumb but it’s as important in comics as it is in animation! Use yourself as reference! Think of how your characters would feel in these situations and how they’d react to their surroundings. I set the first scene of Chapter 3 in Jude’s workroom to show that some time had passed and that he was comfortable enough with Joe in the house to get back to routine, but not so comfortable that he wouldn’t instantly shove a hot soldering iron directly into his face lmao. Your environment can show a lot about a scene!

3, Tie downs! Make it look like… not garbage…

And again, you can still mess with stuff! I change shit after I’ve completely finished a page sometimes. idk I can’t stress that enough - I see a lot of people getting stuck on their first roughs coz they’re not perfect, but that’s fine! Do your roughs, change them in your tie downs, change them in your inks, change them when you’re colouring. Nobody’s gonna know unless you tell them lol. Sometimes stuff has to change for it to work better and its good to be able to recognize that.

And then the rest is just finish it, but I hope this is the kind of process stuff you’re looking for? I tried to not be too technical coz lbr i draw with a hotel pen in a dollar store sketchbook, the materials aren’t that important lol. Basically my advice is: a chapter is a scene, think of it like a DVD chapter where one important plot point happens and it has its own self contained beginning, middle, and end. Have your point you wanna make, make it, and then go on and make another one, and then baby you got a stew going comic

im kind of confused by always sunny like what is it actually about? like some of the things in it make me rly uncomfortable like the whole thing with carmen and mac's homophobia and the casual racism nd stuff in it nd i just dont kno how im supposed to react to it like am i supposed to love it and find it funny or hate it and the characters or? idk nd ive been on the iasip reddit as well and its a lot different from what ive seen the fandom on here talk abt tbh? idk

this is a really good question! and one that i had myself before i started the show. unfortunately it’s not something i can answer very briefly so please bear with me. i’m just gonna throw out the facts and things as i see them and then you can draw your own conclusions on how to feel about the show; i will readily admit that it has more than its share of legitimate issues and that the show just isn’t for everyone.

so the basic premise of the show is that four self-centered assholes (joined by a fifth self-centered asshole in season 2) own a shitty irish bar in south philadelphia. they never actually RUN the bar, though, because they’re too busy trying to run get-rich-quick schemes or because they’re doing other stupid things.

if you ask the writers, they will say that there IS no premise; it’s just a show about these horrible characters living out their sad, pathetic lives.

the truth is somewhere in the middle– the show is one third social/political satire, one third nihilist comedy, and one third character-driven tragedy.

philip gives lukas a hickey (aka philip is a really good kisser)


While he was growing up, Lukas heard quite a bit about kissing. From his guy friends when they’d been able to plant one on a girl in middle school. From songs, and movies, and tv shows. He even had a few kisses of his own.

His kisses never lived up to the expectations. There were never fireworks, or explosions, or even passion. There was just chapped and cold lips, and Lukas trying to figure out what he was doing wrong.

At least, that’s how it was until he met Philip.

Because the first time he kissed him in the cabin was exactly how people described it. But it was more than fireworks.

It was tectonic plates halting in their shaking, falling into place. It was meteor showers and the sky splitting apart. It was every other kiss he’d ever had being proven wrong.

It was Philip, kissing him back.

He really likes kissing Philip. He likes the way Philip’s hair feels when he runs his hands through it, and the way Philip’s hands settle on his waist, dipping beneath his shirt. He likes the feel of his mouth against Lukas’.

As we’re getting really close to The Hanging Tree, I’ve had some thoughts about how we (meaning mostly “the active Tumblr fandom” and “me, specifically”) talk about RoL and representation, which I’m gonna cut for length, but I want to get out before we get a whole lot of new canon.

Hoshi 

  • before the apocalypse he was just this troublemaker who kept being chased around by the student council for always playing pranks and making jokes and like to be honest no one ever regarded him as being smart, they just thought he was being silly for attention
  • but in reality hoshi’s like a creative genius, like he’s always making things out of scrap metal and a lot of his clothing is like DIY stuff with patched and badges and like probably he’s worn paperclip earrings before because he doesn’t care it looks cool
  • hoshi has like a ton of ear piercings in this au. eyebrow piercing too let’s throw that in there
  • and so when the virus breaks out and everyones scrambling to get their hands on ammo or guns or whatever, hoshi’s like nah let me just dumpster dive for materials to make weapons
  • and like honestly he’s made due with an old broken golf club that he tapped back together and chain locks he got off abandoned bikes and whatever else he can find
  • and you meet him because you’re scavenging the area for weapons of your own and you see these two feet sticking out of a dumpster and you’re like …… is it a zombie? is it a person? what the heck is it
  • and you get just a bit closer and throw like an empty can of soda at the legs and all of a sudden they disappear and boys head pops out and he’s like heY who THREW THAT and you’re like OH you’re a survivor
  • and hoshi looks over at you like “did you throw this at me???” and you’re like yeah i wanted to see if you were a zombie and he’s like when have you seen a zombie fishing around in a dumpster and you shrug like idk man anything can happen
  • and hoshi like jumps out of the dumpster, brushes himself off and picks up his golf club and you’re like what’s that supposed to be and he’s like it’s my weapon and you’re like …………a golf club? and he’s like it’s all i need
  • and tbh you’re like well whatever and you wanna be on your merry way but then you hear something behind you, the familiar sound and you’re like ……… dumpster boy we have a problem
  • and hoshi’s like eXCUSE me my names - and you’re like not important zombies coming 
  • and you think like damn i have to protect this boy now too because what can he do with a golf club
  • but the minute the hoard comes hoshi like runs ahead of you and you’re like WAIT but then he’s like??? mowing zombies down no sweat??? and you’re like oh,,,,,,he’s better than i thought
  • and you run after him and start helping and like 
  • you guys make a good team
  • a good enough team that when you guys are done with every last zombie in the attack hoshi’s like we should do this more often so you guys kinda like stick together for the rest of the time
  • and it’s kinda funny because hoshi tries to get you to use his golf club during fights and you’re like “listen, i feel safer with this pistol” and hoshi’s like LIVE A L I T T L E 
  • at first you’re like hell no im not getting into a dumpster but hoshi convinces you at some point and like it’s not as bad
  • you two smell really bad and are always on the lookout for somewhere to shower which is hard to do in a time of crisis but it’s ok because you smell bad…..together???
  • and hoshi at some point tells you about his past and how he’s used to people calling him dumb and shit like that and you’re like a little guilty because you didn’t think much of him either but now you see that he’s really innovative and actually quite charming what no you didn’t say that
  • and hoshi keeps pestering you about what kind of ~partners~ you’ve had in the past and you’re like hoshi bye and he’s like “you love me the most though??? forget about the past ones~~” and you’re like HOSHI BYE
  • you drop kicked a zombie in front of him once and finally took his golf club to like hit the zombies head off and as you watched it disappear into the sky hoshi was like
  • “hole in one”

Jun 

  • was visiting the country on a vacation and now…..he’s stuck in this mess that he DOES NOT want to be stuck in 
  • literally he was right at the airport, about to board his flight back when they shut everything down and now he’s so mad he could rip his passport in half but he’s ike jUN just….calm down…….
  • and for the most part he decides just staying in the airport for now is ok because it’s on lockdown
  • and you, well you are a part-timer at the juicebar in the airport and tbh you have no clue what’s happening and you’re sitting under the counter, eating some fruits in panic because zombies???what the fRICk???
  • and you’re like just breath it has to be a dream UnTIL you hear someone clear their throat from above you and you’re like ??? who ??? the 
  • and you slowly get up, holding your basket of fruits you used to make juice with, and in front of you is this chic, stylish dude with his briefcase and some sunglasses and you’re like yes??? and he’s like “do you have juice?” and you can hear a bit of an accent and you’re like …….sir……we are in the middle of a lockdown
  • and he takes off his glasses with a sigh and ok he’s kinDA cute not the point but he’s like “so what?? can i have some juice or?”
  • and you’re like “i…..mean………..there’s no electricity so i cant make the blender work……”
  • and the guys like …..oh……good point….valid point……
  • and you guys kinda stand there awkwardly until finally he opens his mouth to say something wHEN screams start coming from everywhere and all you hear is ZOMBIES and you’re like SHIT 
  • and the guys like HIDE QUICK and he jumps over the counter and like pulls you under to where you were before and you guys like squeeze close and you’re like omf dude you’re crushing the bananas im holding and he’s like shh also my names jun not dude
  • and so you guys are cramped together silently praying that the running footsteps you hear are majority people and not zombies
  • and you’re holding your breath and when you look up you’re like wait 
  • and you’re looking right into jun’s eyes and they’re so pretty, like a sparkling brown and your heart flutters a little and you’re like o - oh- 
  • but also like not rigHT NOW WHEN ZOMBIES COULD COME FOR YOU ANY MINUTE 
  • and like you guys stay there for a longtime till you cant hear anything and finally you like get out from under the counter and the whole airport is like empty and jun’s like well….at least the zombies left too
  • and tbh you’re like gonna cry this is too much whats going to happen and jun turns to see the like tears well up and he’s like oh oh god no don’t cry listen it’s gonna be ok listen lisTEn im far from my own home country and im telling you its going to be fine come here
  • and he like pulls you into his arms and you cry into his sleeve and it’s so EMOTIONAL even though you’re strangers basically 
  • but from then on jun like can’t leave you alone and you don’t really wanna leave jun’s side and you guys like make rounds around the airport to make sure no zombies are around
  • and you live off whatever snacks are left throughout the stores in the airport and every now and then zombies will wander through and you and jun search through luggage for anything that can be used as a weapon to defend yourselves
  • and the more you are alone with him the more you learn he’s not some chic snob he’s actually a greasy, easily entertained boy that like looks at himself in the mirror too much
  • but it’s kinda cute he’s like “well my hair is a mess so we know this is serious” and you’re ike omf
  • you offer to like brush it for him once and he gets kind of flustered for the first time but then makes some joke about how you’ve apparently been ‘dying’ to get your hands on him and you’re like HA no thanks
  • but lbr he’s cute and all you can think back to is that moment where he held you close the entire time and ok idk
  • you guys in a big airport giggling to yourself sitting on the counter of a juice bar and jun’s like i miss home and this is scary, but this person is ,,,,,,,so special to me now………
  • corny

the8 & dino 

  • didn’t know the apocalypse was happening because they were getting ready for a dance battle …….against each other 
  • they’re like mortal enemies of the dance battle world or something 
  • each of them always has like headphones on and literally doesn’t listen to what anyone else has to say 
  • all they wanna do is dance basically EVEN When therES ZOMbIES EVERYWHERe
  • but like actually dancing comes pretty in handy because their reactions are really fast and they have good instincts 
  • also can you imagine dino like moonwalking and then punching a zombie in the face 
  • while minghao does some kick flip and throws up the peace sign at the end??
  • but ok so like they’re gonna face off right but when they get to the place no ones there??? and they’re looking @ each other like what’s going on
  • and you, well you’re actually hiding out in the underground studio and at first you just hide and hope these two go away but then they start???
  • playing music??? and??? dancing
  • and you’re like shit it’s too loud the zombies might hear so you like jump out and turn off the music and the8′s like what the hell and you’re like 
  • what in gods name are you two doing in the middle of a zombie virus outbreak
  • and dino looks at you like ??? zombie???
  • and the8′s like are you having a bad nightmare or something??
  • and you’re like ARE YOU TWO BLIND didn’t you see the mobs of people and the news?? and they’re like no we woke up, got ready, listened to music and came here
  • and you like bring your hand up to your face and you’re like
  • you two need to leave and go get weapons to defend yourself-
  • but before you can finish the8′s like can you judge our dance battle?? we need someone to decide the winner
  • and you’re like ?????? what?????Did you not hear me????
  • and dino’s like yEAH zombies but also we need to settle this score so can you help us out
  • and you’re like skdhgkfha WHAT
  • and they’re like hellbent on you picking a winner and you’re like ok ok dance
  • and so they start again and you’re like what am i doing i should be out looking for food but im watching two boys dance battle
  • and like its all ok until you hear a scratching at the door and you’re like gUYS THIS ISNT A JOKE STO P 
  • and they’re like it’s nothing but then
  • the zombies come in and the8′s like oh god what is that
  • and you’re like that’s it. we are all gonna die. because these two wanted to dance battle till the end. i would like to write my will-
  • but before you know it the8′s highkicked the zombie in the neck so hard it’s head rolls off and dino like punches one square in the face and you’re like 
  • wait
  • and before you know it the zombies who’d found you are lying motionless on the floor and you’re like holy shit
  • and minghao and dino are like so where were we. dance battle
  • and so you’re forced to sit through it again and tbh like 
  • you feel safe with them actually now that you’ve seen what they can do so youre not protesting as much
  • but when it’s over you’re like 
  • hmmmm i don’t know 
  • and they’re like you HAVE TO ChoOSE
  • so let’s say you choose the8 and the8 is like of course i knew it and dino’s like sticking his tongue out at him 
  • and the8 goes over and he’s like “im glad you recognize real talent when you see it, you should stick by my side through this” and dino’s like gross hyung don’t be romantic
  • and the8′s like ??? romantic??? and you’re like ahdgdlakshfn 
  • and idk you like take him up on the offer and you guys break off from dino who’s still salty over the loss and the8’s quite an efficient fighter and really crafty so you guys like 
  • wander but he’s always there to protect you and somehow (you don’t know how) he manages to keep his ipod charged you’re like how he’s like solar energy you’re like please explain and he just smiles
  • and it’s that soft, angelic smile and youre like you know what dont question it and you guys do well together sometimes you catch the8 still practicing his dancing when he should be sleeping and you’re like its cute that he doesnt lose his passion
  • the8 jokingly asking if you really chose him as the winner because of dancing our because you think he’s cute and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,,
  • and he’s like hehe oh my maybe i need to battle dino again since you’re so biased and you’re like shUT it,,,,
  • BUT if you chose dino, who like celebrates by doing some groovy dance and the8 rolls his eyes and is like whatever im out of here before disappearing out the door
  • and dino’s like “he’s being such a sore loser!!” and you’re like ?? so are you going to like go and take this situation seriously now and dino shrugs like i guess
  • but then he comes up really close to you and is like “wanna come with me????”
  • and you have no better place to be so you agree
  • and dino’s cute he like is really energetic and keeps you positive in a time of like chaos
  • he like gets along with all the kid survivors you meet 
  • and he keeps insisting that he teach you some dance moves on your off time but you’re like dino we cant play music the zombies 
  • and he pulls you up by the wrist and is like we DOnt need the music, the music is insIDE of us
  • and you’re like that’s cheesy but dino’s already spinning you
  • and moments like these make this whole thing so much brighter
  • but when zombies come around dino’s no joke, he protects you within an inch of his life
  • and idk it’s cute you two are like so cheerful and full of fun while everything else is so dreary and horrible and people see you and are reminded that there’s you know still hope ^^ 
  • dino getting flustered whenever you mention that his fighting style reminds you of dancing because what no,,,,,,,really???? 
Fall 2016 Anime: Last impressions

What, me? Posting something that’s not Yuri on Ice? Did I wander to the wrong blog? Oh right, this isn’t supposed to be a Yuri on Ice blog to begin with, oops.

After a very shitty semester and my Mom’s and sister’s vacations messing up with my anime watching schedule (plus a shitty vicious cycle of not watching anime to work on thesis-not working on thesis because stressed from not watching anime), I finally finished catching up with Fall anime, barely on time before Winter begins (I know some winter shows have premiered already, but none that interest me. Rakugo’s on today though!!!!). So here’s a rundown of the best and worst of this most fruitful Fall season. If there’s a gif it means I forgot to take a screenshot of the last episode whoops.  (worst to best my dears, you know how this goes)

Dropped:

Shuumatsu no Izetta: I really tried. Even after the stupidity of episode 4 put me to sleep, I tried to give it a second shot, but episode 6 was literally everything that is wrong with modern anime and ugh, please release me from this hell. Of course having a strong female character was too progressive for a yuribait show, you just had to make her have insecurities about her normal-sized boobs (vs everyone’s ginormous) and dedicate 25 entire minutes to show that she’s actually a real girly girl that likes pie. Ugh. And I didn’t even mention how stupid the “Izetta’s secret might be revealed” plot element was. That was some garbage writing if I ever saw one. Most of what I’ve read after dropping it seems to indicate it was the best choice

3gatsu no Lion: I’m confused with this show. The production values make it very attractive to watch. There is a harsh and interesting story and character drama happening. Episode 5 was particularly great, and some of the storytelling devices are implemented brilliantly. But for some reason I can’t bring myself to care? I don’t know. The more I see the three sisters, the more the scenes with them bore me to death. I found the idea of watching episode 6 terribly not-compelling so I decided to put it in the back burner and wait out. Maybe I’m just incompatible with this mangaka (I really hate HachiKuro). People seem to be loving it, so maybe I’ll give it another shot at a later date.

Touken Ranbu Hanamaru: This was my biggest disappointment of the season because episode 2 was so good. It tickled all my rekijo bones in the best way. But then it just… nothing ever happened? Also the way all the sword boys gush about how much they love the (invisible but obviously audience-proxy) “Master” is way too transparent and took me out of whatever little interesting character dynamics might be going on. What could be an interesting theme –the swordboys having regrets about not protecting their past owners and being tempted to fix it- is wasted in a “it’s okay, I have a new master now!”. Even with my fujoshi goggles there was little of interest because the boys were so infatuated with the Master I couldn’t even enjoy any of it. Held out until episode 9 and just couldn’t be arsed for more. Maybe the more serious ufotable show will be better?

Nanbaka: I don’t know what went wrong with this mangaka that suddenly decided to turn a perfectly fine comedy into a Very Serious battle shonen thing? Especially mid-arc? The New Year tournament had revitalized the show, I was having a load of fun with it, but then it suddenly turned all dark and serious and nonsensical? The only thing tempting me to go back for the last three episodes is Hajime, he’s a champ. But yeah, the shift in tone was too drastic and kind of spoiled the show for me because I was loving it exactly as it was. It didn’t need the drama. Some people seem to be liking the new direction but ehhhh… idk. If I have time.

The worst:

17. DAYS: It was hard to choose which of these two was gonna be the poop prize winner, but in the end, given how much I struggled to even sit through the last couple of episodes, I guess DAYS takes it. Honestly seldom have I seen a show so infuriatingly ruined by “protagonist no jutsu” i.e. things just happen because a dude is the main character. Kimishita scored three completely bananas goals in that game (bless his heart I love him), but Tsukushi gets all the credit for earning the free kicks and second balls and shit and he’s the one credited as the “hero” of the game. It’s amazing that such an insufferable protagonist is part of a show with an otherwise endearing supporting cast. Now will my love for Mizuki and Kimishita be enough to pull me into watching season 2? Tune in some time next year to find out! (spoiler: most likely no unless it comes out on a boring season)

16.Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku: I called this show the winner of the “Showed its cards too early Award” since episode one, but boy I didn’t expect it to continue doing the exact same thing over and over through its entire run. At some point it became a very unsurprising formula of showing a character’s tragic backstory at the start of the episode to fabricate last minute sympathy to make up for lack of proper characterization, only to have the character in question murdered in increasingly distasteful ways. I always knew best girl Top Speed wasn’t long for this world, but the way they handled it was gratuitously vicious. Couple that with a barrage of villains, none of which were remotely compelling or had any interesting motivations, a poor man’s Kyubey, a protagonist that is even more infuriatingly passive than Madoka herself (at least in this aspect, MahoIku surpassed its intellectual mother), and a resolution that basically says this whole thing served no purpose whatsoever and you’re left with just a feeling that you could’ve done something better with your life. I never expected grandeur from this show, and in fact I guess it turned out to be about as bad as I could’ve expected it to be, but that doesn’t really erase how terribly dissatisfying the ending was. I guess that’s one weakness that Dark Magical Girl shows have yet to overcome.

Normally a “the meh” section would be here, but I dropped all those shows for lack of entertainment and time, so we’re skipping straight to

The okay

(I liked these shows but none of them changed my life and I was severely tempted to drop them at least once)

15.Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans: I have rather complicated feelings about this show. The writing has improved immensely since the second half of S1 and they’re doing a fascinating job at working the different shades of moral grey. Mika’s sick relationship with Orga continues to keep me on my toes. But with only 12 episodes left I’m still not entirely sure of where this is going, and most importantly, it stinks of tragedy and there seems to be a general lack of joy in both characters and story, so I always go to watch it with little enthusiasm and maybe a bit of anxiety.

14.Girlish Number:  This one turned out way better than I expected it to be, although perhaps for different reasons than most. Usually when I hatewatch something, it’s for the pleasant schadenfreude I get out of seeing something continue to fail miserably week after week (see Sailor Moon Crystal or Mayoiga). In that sense, I wasn’t hatewatching Girlish Number but boy was I getting schadenfreude about seeing the exploitative producer go on a downwards spiral and the shitty LN anime adaptation turning up a complete failure. But because this was the source of my enjoyment, the finale was, to say the least, dissatisfying. If the show had ended with Chitose getting a proper comeuppance and landing different jobs (in non-shitty-LN-anime) that forced her to climb her way back up instead of trying to have  sudden fabricated popularity, while Kuzu got his ass fired that would’ve been cool. But the “Oh I ended loving this production” ending was ehhhh. It felt the show ended going milquetoast on its criticism of the industry. Criticized the seiyuu idol units but still had the seiyuu sing the OP and ED criticized the cheap swimsuit fanservice but still had a swimsuit episode etc. I mean they went really damn hard on the industry, so it was weird and a little frustrating that they didn’t go the whole way, given how they’d already guaranteed to lose the buying audience anyway.

13.Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari: It’s hard to explain what went wrong with this one because, if you asked me, I’d say I really liked it overall. But the key problem is perhaps that I adored the first two episodes so deeply and then somewhere in the middle it kind of floundered and went in a different direction than what I expected –which isn’t inherently bad, mind you- but it’s weird that there’s so little actual udon in the show when they’re in the title. The finale was good in idea, but I feel it failed to make the emotional landing, and that they capped it off to be a sort of commercial for Kagawa prefecture was just… weird. So uh, it was a good show but definitely didn’t live up to the promise of the first few episodes.

12.Uta no Prince-sama Legend Star:  For me, this and Magikyun are basically tied, because, although I have more love for Utapri due to how long it’s been around and how I’ve grown so endeared to the characters, I can’t say Magikyun did anything worse or better. But anyway Utapri! Revolutions had me losing a little of my love for the franchise, but Legend Star was really great! The music improved drastically and we got some truly neat character arcs. The Otoya arc was surprisingly good. It’s sad to see they’ve fully committed to shitty CG dancing though ): But oh well, the Quartet Night song was great and there’s even more anime coming because Broccoli does like printing money after all. Almost forgot to mention it, but Haruka is hardly relevant this season and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not, but I’ll also say I didn’t particularly miss her.

11.Magic-Kyun Renaissance:  I’ll say this about Magikyun, it was less dumb than I expected given the title. I mean it was super dumb, but it could’ve been dumber. It was also a lot of fun, had neat visuals and surprisingly good songs? I feel it could’ve ended in episode 9 because it doesn’t feel like the new resolution in ep 13 actually added anything of note to the story or the characters, but it was okay. It’s harmless dumb entertainment and that’s what I wanted it to be. 

The good

10.Flip Flappers:  It’s always great to see passion projects like this, even if they don’t always stick the landing. In the gayest anime season, FliFla gave us a lesbian visual spectacle that was among the best animated experiences of the year. While narratively it blooped a little in the last third and became a weird Eva-ish nightmare, it sorta kinda worked out at the end, although definitely didn’t live up to its initial dreamy potential. And it was very lesbian, although I feel it was lowkey creepy lesbian since Papika is somehow an adult??? I think they explained some things too much and left others glaringly unexplained. Some weird things happened in that production that hindered its potential, but it’s still a fascinating series to look at, even if you don’t dig the character dynamics (which are adorable but in the end didn’t do much for me). Could’ve done with 100% less creepy robot though     

9.Classicaloid: I’d call Classicaloid the Bungo Stray Dogs (season 1) of the Fall because while it wasn’t what I wanted or expected, it managed to grow on me. I was on the edge of dropping it because the wacky one-note humor wasn’t working for me at all, but with the introduction of Schubert and the slow drip of answers to our questions of what is even happening in this show, it became notoriously more fun. Definitely the strongest moments of the show are when we get to see the Classicaloids having flash backs to their past lives (the episode about Beethoven and his loss of hearing was particularly brilliant) and while I still mostly have no idea of where this is going at all, they’ve definitely got me hooked wanting to know what Bach is even planning.

8.Drifters: This might have gone even higher up the ranks if not for all the homophobic and sexist jokes ugh. But I guess it’s a testament to how entertaining it is that I watched it all through and would still watch the upcoming second season (or maybe it’s a testament to what a good job it did in tickling my very specific rekijo bone). The characterization of Nobunaga in particular is absolutely brilliant, and the little nuances in the interactions between characters of different time periods are fantastic. Cool action sequences and interesting strategizing and politicking. But I reckon this isn’t something that’s gonna sway the non-history buffs. Also ew the sexist and homophobic jokes. The show has great comedy without that, please don’t be so gross Hirano.

7.ALL OUT!!: It had a bit of a slow start, but once it started picking up with the practice matches and developing the team, it’s just gotten exponentially better! Especially since the addition of the coach. DAYS could learn a thing or two about how it isn’t necessary to make the inexperienced main character the sudden “hero” of the team to make for a compelling sports story. That said I still do not understand about 75% of how rugby works at all, but the endearing cast and the passionate games make up for it. Also the horrible hair. Definitely looking forward to where these kids will go in the second half.

The excellent

6.Fune wo Amu: This is a case of me one-sidedly having expectations that a show can’t live up to and thus I don’t enjoy it as much as I could. Which is no fault of the show itself and it is in fact one of the best anime of the season (arguably the year). It does fail on the entertainment department, but compensates with beautiful craftsmanship and a wonderful portrayal of human feelings and relationships. While it wounded up being Very Heterosexual (and the main couple develops in a rather cold and questionable manner, but hey, the wife wasn’t forced to give up her dreams to become a housewife. A+ for progress! ) the portrayal of Majime’s camaraderie with Nishioka (and Nishioka’s very great relationship with his gf!) was really the heart of the show, and just for that it’s absolutely worth the watch.

5.Natsume Yuujinchou Go: I think it’s rather telling to the quality of the season overall that Natsume Yuujinchou somehow fell just slightly above the middle of the pack. I do feel this season of Natsume was weaker than the previous ones, but to be honest I can’t quite pinpoint why. Maybe it didn’t feel like we reached a new milestone in Natsume’s development or in learning about Reiko –in fact, it feels we learned conspicuously little about Reiko this season-, although the final episode and the Touko episode were notable highlights. With a sixth season already in the works, I have little else to say other than, even when it’s not in top form, this is still among the best one could ever hope to get from anime

4.Bungo Stray Dogs 2: Remember how season 1 was good but not what I wanted it to be? Well, season 2 wasn’t exactly what I’d originally hope BSD would be about but it sure as fuck was fantastic! Starting with the flashback episodes to Dazai’s time in the Port Mafia and the story of Oda Sakunosuke, to the introduction of the American writers and the follow-up with Kyouka and Atsushi’s arcs as well as Akutagawa (!!!!) it was a genuinely amazing season that completely justifies watching the first one even if you weren’t entirely convinced about it at first. My only gripe is the lack of Kunikida, but this season showed that Dazai is the lynchpin of this series and he fulfills that role to perfection. I loved loved loved this season and I hope we get more of this series.

3.Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable: While it floundered a little in the second cour (seriously I was happy Shigechi died, he was an awful character), it picked itself right back up in the third and the battle against Kira –who is an astonishingly amazing villain- was just week after week of blood-pumping excitement and fun. Not every episode was perfect, but the package as a whole is fantastic. At moments it felt more like Kishibe Rohan’s Bizarre Adventure, but even that was okay because every member of the cast was so great. You can see the passion David Production has for this franchise, and I’m hoping they’ll continue adapting it. While Joseph is still Best JoJo, I think part 4, with its incredibly strong cast and creative set up might be my favorite arc so far.

2.Haikyuu 3: vicky’s probably gonna hate me for this but If I’m honest, the Shiratorizawa match wasn’t my favorite in the manga. I love the development Tsukki got through it and I commend Furudate for how brilliantly he’s been working in making these characters grow in such satisfying ways. But Shiratorizawa, and Ushijima specially, is the epitome of OP rival and that’s something that’s never really worked for me. It felt like the Rakuzan game in Kurobas, there were moments in which it felt that it just never ended. And I was worried about how they were going to work it into ten episodes. I think it’s a testament to the anime team that they managed to make it not actually feel like 10 episodes, and that they’ve made this one of the most exciting matches to watch in all of Haikyuu. It was truly spectacular and I can’t wait for S4

THE BEST

1.Yuri!!! on ICE: Joke’s on you, this was a Yuri on Ice post all along!! Even if my conflicted feelings about the ending had been sourer and heavier, I would have no doubt that this is the best show of the season (and the year). It’s taken me a while, but after having chewed on my feelings for a couple of days (while fighting the denialists with all my might) I’m even more confident about it. I don’t even know what more praise I can rain on this beautiful, beautiful show that has literally saved me so many times during this really difficult trimester and I am ever so grateful to its creators for giving us such a beautiful gift in such dark times. Now please end our suffering and confirm a season 2, because just like Victor and Yuuri can’t live without each other (canon!) I can’t live without them anymore ;—;

What a strong season this was! A high note to end an otherwise shitty year! Thanks everyone for following this nonsense blog and I hope this new year brings us all more beautiful anime (and less menstrual cramps for me). Winter shows I’m watching premiere literally today so I’ll skip the “anticipation” rundown and go straight to my watchlist in a couple of weeks.  As always, I’ll be happy to hear which were your favorite and least favorite shows of the season, but I know y’all never answer to my questions ;—-;

Seventeen’s Reaction to Being on A Long Flight With Their Crush!

“How would SEVENTEEN react to having to go on a 12h fly with their crush ? How would they act on the plane ? Thanks ! I love your work ✈” - anon


A/N; wow I haven’t posted a reaction in a while I’ve been so busy please forgive me;;  I got so carried away with these lmao hope you all enjoy!!


S.Coups - Ahhh Seungcheol would be smooth. He’d be a bit nervous but it definitely wouldn’t show. He’d realize there’s not much else to do but talk so he’d just make general conversation and then a bit later he’d start asking deeper questions, and by the end of the flight u 2 would know everything abt each other. do you kno the exact time he was born? yup. do you know what brand of cereal he loves? yes u do. when you guys landed he’d be like “wow, that went by so fast” and then he’d nonchalantly ask u for ur number and do you give it to him? of course you do. he knows everything abt u now.


Jeonghan - He wouldn’t really know how to start a conversation but he’d really want to so he’d just keep stealing glances at you and at one point you’d catch him and be like ??? and he’d just say “oh I’m just looking out the window!” and he’d make some comment about how pretty the sky looked or smthn like that and would keep the convo going!! if u guys hit it off, at the end of the flight when u guys were saying bye he’d be like “oh btw, I wasn’t looking out the window. I was looking at you. I just wanted an excuse to talk to you ;)” and would walk away probably leaving u very flustered haH


Joshua - HED BE SO NERVOUS but he definitely wouldn’t be shy??? like he’d definitely want to talk to you but because he’s nervous he’s gonna end up saying some really stupid things and making dad jokes and just being a meme & if you laughed at any of his jokes he’d get so flustered ahhh. eventually he’d realize he’s freaking out for no reason cuz ur actually super easy to get along with and would totally calm down. josh would probably ask u about why you were going wherever u guys were flying to and would try really hard to think of topics that would be interesting to you and he’d probably end up accidentally complimenting you and he’d be like “OH I didn’t mean that!! I mean….I did….but I didn’t mean to say it out loud..” he’d BLUSH SO BAD but you’d be like “dude its ok I think ur cute too” or whatever and he’d be sO giddy the rest of the flight and would make u promise to call him after u guys landed ;^)))


Jun - I bet ur all expecting him to be greasy. you’re right. once the flight takes off, he’ll look at you and the first thing he’ll say is “this is a really long flight, and I know sleeping can be kinda uncomfortable in a plane, so you can rest your head on my shoulder any time ;)))” I don’t think he’d talk to u a whole bunch?? he’d make general conversation and would keep it going, but wouldn’t want to go overboard or annoy u or anything. at one point u would actually end up falling asleep on his shoulder and he’d BE SO SMUG but he’d also be a blushing mess & would probs rest his head on top of yours I’m :’)))))))


Hoshi - this lil’ muffin is gonna be so excited omg, he’d be so fun to be on a long plane ride!!! he’d come up with a lot of different games to play to pass the time like truth or dare. he’d come up with an extremely embarrassing punishment for when either of you guys would refuse to do a dare or answer a truth like “loser has to ask 10 different people on the flight to makeout with them” or something awful like that. once he noticed u felt comfortable around him and maybe showed interest in him he’d be like “this is my chance” and he’d ask u truth or dare and you’d pick dare and he’d “I dare you to go on a date with me” AND U’D BE LIKE ‘HOSHI WHAT’ and he’d say “it’s a date with me or you’re making out with that old man that’s been coughing and sneezing for the past 6 hours!!!!” and ofc you’d accept and yeah!!!


Wonwoo - I think he’d be rly shy. like rly shy he wouldn’t want to embarrass himself in front of u so he’d keep quiet in the beginning. eventually he’d notice what song u were listening to or what book u were reading and he’d just go for it and strike up a conversation abt it. once that convo died down he wouldn’t know what else to talk about so he’d let you go back to whatever it was u were doing. he’d notice you were looking cold and would offer to share his blanket with you, and you’d both be so cozy and end up dozing off and you’d REST YOUR HEAD ON HIS SHOULDER AND HE’D JOLT AWAKE SUDDENLY LIKE!!!! THIS IS HAPPENING!!!! he’d end up staying awake the whole time and when you’d wake up he’d be like “did you enjoy your rest?” with a cute lil smile on his face AAAAAHHHHH


Woozi - he’d like….just assume you wouldn’t want to talk to him or would want to be left alone for whatever reason so he’d just smile at you once then put his headphones on and listen to music and just mind his own business until he feels a tap on his shoulder and ur like “i have to go to the bathroom” but he doesn’t hear you cause his music is too loud and he says a little too loudly “hold on” + pauses his music and then he apologizes and u repeat urself and he’s like OH OK and gets out of his seat to let you out and he sits back down and doesn’t put his headphones back on so he can hear u when u come back & when you do he gets up and smiles at u, sits back down and still doesn’t put his headphones on….he notices you’re not doing anything either cause u lowkey want to talk to him too so he’s just like alrighty and finally strikes up a convo w/ you!! ur gonna hit it off really well and ur both gonna leave w/ each others numbers ;))


DK - sunshine boy is gonna make sure this flight goes GR8 for the both of you. he’ll bring some snacks on the plane and will offer to share them with you. will offer to share his blanket even if you have ur own. he’s gonna make a bunch of jokes and u bet ur stomach is gonna hurt from laughing by the time you land!! at one point he’ll offer u one of his earbuds and hands u his phone and’s like “pick a song, any song!” and ur scrolling through and you see one you love and you’re like “WOAH you like this song too??” and hes like “Uh, YEAH! One of my faves!” and then u just go back and forth playing songs you both like and getting excited when the other really likes it too and tbh ur both gonna be really sad when the flight’s over cause!! you’re having such a good time!! he’d be like “hey…I know we don’t talk that often back home but like…we should hangout sometime!” and YOU WILL AND!!!! GOOD!!!


Mingyu - I can see him being really dorky tbh. he’s gonna keep cracking lame jokes trying to get u to laugh, and every time you do laugh, that’s just gonna build his confidence even more. at one point you’d actually laugh rly hard at something he said and he’d just be like “…do you actually think i’m funny or are u just laughing cause u feel bad for me?” and you’d be like wtf ofc I think you’re funny!! why would I feel bad for you? and he’d be like “idk cause i’m just saying all of this stupid stuff and saying dumb jokes cause idk how else to talk to you” and he’d instantly think “why did I just say that omg” but you’d be like “mingyu…..you can talk to me about anything, I don’t care.” and you’d smile and he’d be like !!!!! wow ok and he’d “so, how about the weather?” and you’d both look at each other and just laugh again :)))


The8 - this lil guy would be so nervous!! he’d be like “oh great, how am I going to embarrass myself??” he’d be in the middle of thinking abt it when you’d ask him a question and he’d turn to you with wide eyes and be like “what??” and you’d repeat yourself and he’d answer whatever question it was and then he’d think to himself “wtf was I so worried for? they’re so friendly!!!” and he’d ask you a question too and you guys would just go back and forth getting to know each other better and he’d notice u looked kinda tired so he’d feel bad and be like “omg I’m sorry if I’m being annoying, you can go to sleep if you want” and you’d say “no its okay, I enjoy having someone to talk to on such a long flight….but I am pretty tired.” and you’d just smile at each other and u’d doze off eventually and he’d take the blanket he had and cover u up with it and just look at u so lovingly like..”they look like such an angel when they’re asleep” and he’d sigh happily cause hes so happy that he got to sit next to u and get to know u <333


Seungkwan - he’s gonna start off calm..he’ll be thinking to himself like “ok seungkwan..there’s nothing to be afraid of….it’s just the person you like….no big deal…you got this” BUT then as soon as you say something to him he’ll lose that cool composure and kinda tense up but still manage to make awkward conversation with you but you’d notice him fiddling with the sleeve of his shirt and avoiding eye contact with u and u’d be like “hey..are you alright?” and he’d be like “oh yeah! I’m just nervous” and he’d mean he was nervous cause he was sitting next to u but u would think he meant he was nervous to be on the plane. and I think a few more hours into the flight he would definitely loosen up and be like “the flight isn’t even half over I need to stop acting like this” and OUT COMES NORMAL BOO. he’s gonna make some jokes and just be a lil cutie pie but then he’ll accidentally insult u and he’d be realize what he just said and would FREAK OUT AND be like ‘oh my god no I didn’t meant that at all I’m so sorry I mean that you’re really pretty/handsome and I totally think we should hangout!!!” and then after he said that he’d be like oh my god why do I keep embarrassing myself but you’d be like “no its ok I know you were kidding. but yeah we should, I think that’d be fun :)” and he’d be such a happy lil guy ;;


Vernon - GOD THIS KID IS GONNA BE AWKWARD AF??? like you’ll be sitting next to each other and he’ll go to rest his arm on the armrest and his arm will brush against yours and he’ll just SNAP his arm away so quick with wide eyes and utter a “sorry” and you’d be like ??? it’s fine Vernon? but then like hours into the flight you guys still won’t have talked much and ur both watching whatever movie the airline is playing and you’d turn to him and be like “dude. what’s happening i’m so lost” and he’ll explain it super in depth and give u a whole bunch of crazy theories abt what could be really going on and you’d be like where the heck is all of this talking coming from but then by the time he’d explained all of his theories the movie would be way over and u two would just laugh and he’d be like “wow i’m sorry. I just get really into movies like that I hope you don’t think i’m crazy…” but you would be like “no that is actually super interesting!!” and then u two would continue talking about other movie theories and just get into weird random super deep conversations and it would be really enjoyable tbh!!


Dino - omg he’d walk up see you sitting down and would be like “oh hey y/n!!” like I honestly see him being pretty normal??? he may be a little shy but like oh well. why be shy when ur gonna have to be on this flight together for the next twelve hours?? he’d also be really cute tho like he’d want to make sure u were totally comfortable and be like “hey I’m gonna ask for a pillow, do u want one too?” or “do you want a bottle of water or anything to eat? i’m gonna ask the attendant for some water so I can ask for something for you too!!” he’d have just normal convos with u but would also probably suggest that you play truth or dare or I spy or smthn to pass the time!! But he’d be the one to fall asleep on your shoulder. like you’d be minding ur own business and suddenly you feel a weight on your shoulder and you’re like ?? and u see chan with his eyes closed resting his head on ur shoulder and it would be the most wholesome sight ever. <3

asecretyoucankeep  asked:

If "Returned from the dead kiss" doesn't scream stucky then idk what is (It's like I'm asking for angst, this whoke thing screams angst)

Okay I’m gonna start by saying that I am NOT writing this fic… but if I were I would title it It’s Been a Long, Long Time

Bucky fell from Zola’s train and remarkably survived, only he was captured by the Red Room rather than Soviet Hydra.  As in the comics, they were the ones who brainwashed him and gave him the arm and trained him and kept him on cryo until they needed him.  And also as in the comics, there was a time during the 60s (after the JFK assassination, maybe?) when the Winter Soldier went AWOL… only this time, he was never recaptured.  There were enough homeless people in New York City and he’d been trained to blend in as an operative, so it was just a matter of knowing good hiding places and being self-sufficient enough that he couldn’t be traced to any one place or tracked.

Somehow, although his mind was a jumbled mess, his body still new Brooklyn and the other boroughs enough that Bucky pulled it off.

His mind slowly came back to him, and while it was a painful, awful process, remembering every terrible thing he had ever done and lost, Buck was able to pull through it.  After a couple of years the vast majority of his memories had come back; they left him haunted, and he knew that other people could notice as much, but by that point there were enough soldiers coming back from Vietnam that he could play both his mind and the obviously injured arm that he insisted on keeping covered with sleeves and a glove at all times off.  

After all - the arm was injured in war, and he definitely did see some shit.  As long as he didn’t specify which war, it wasn’t a lie.

Things slowly got better.  One thing Bucky realized, when it suddenly occurred to him that it had been over ten years since he’d slipped the Red Room operatives sent to bring him back in, was that in addition to allowing him to survive all of the shit that got him to this point in the first place, Zola’s serum also apparently kept him from aging - or at least made it slow enough that it was barely noticeable.  He knew that would be an issue; by this point he actually had started to tentatively reach out to people, was working odd jobs when he could find them and actually had a shitty little studio apartment in the Bronx, which he’d been able to secure under a fake name and forged ID papers.  After a fair amount of debate, Bucky knew that he would have to start moving around - neighbors would notice the oddities about him if he stuck around for too long.

So he moved from place to place along the East Coast, saving up money until he could buy a junker of a Harley then fixing it up and heading West.  He spent most of the 80s and 90s that way, travelling the US, hitting up all of the sites and cities that he and Steve had sworn they would get away and see during the 40s, then adding in places that either looked interesting, or that he knew Steve would have enjoyed.

He never got in touch with his family again, a point that he would come to regret years later, but he also didn’t want to put them through the pain of knowing everything that he’d done and been through.

Time marches on, Bucky continues living and figuring his shit out.  He isn’t happy, per say, but he is making shit work, which given his circumstances he figures is as good of a situation as he’s going to get.  He does make it back to New York to ring in the new millennium, trying not to be too melancholy as he watches the ball drop in Times Square and imagines how excited his former self would have been, knowing that he lived to see the year 2000 and all of its wonders.  That night he dreams that Steve had been there with him, and they both spent their time griping about the lack of flying cars and laughing at all of the oddities that the future had brought.

They also kissed at midnight, but Bucky does his best to try to forget that mental image when he wakes in the morning.

He’s doing construction in Chicago when Bucky first hears the news about the Valkyrie wreckage being recovered, and not for the first time he curses Zola’s name for making the serum just strong enough that he struggles to get drunk… it’s good to know that Steve’s remains (which were conspicuously left out of all of the details on the find) will finally be laid properly to rest, but it also hurts like hell, now knowing that he’s officially gone.  

Two weeks later the Battle of New York happens, and Buck’s in the middle of trying to figure out how quickly he can drive across the country to help with clean-up efforts when he sees the footage of the ‘new’ Captain America, and shit… he would recognize that punk anywhere, even with the dorky new outfit.

Steve’s alive.  A fact that Bucky probably should have expected, given what he lived through on the knock-off serum (he’s haunted by guilt for months when he thinks about it… had he just come clean, maybe turned himself in to Peggy Carter once he had his wits about him, SHIELD could have upped their efforts and probably found Steve decades earlier).

But he stays back.  Even with as much progress as he’s made over the years, there are parts of Bucky that still make him feel like a monster - plus he can only imagine what Steve’s going through, trying to figure out the world, cope with everything that has changed.  Having this new version of his former best pal around to get used to would hardly help. He heads to New York all the same, though, and later when he hears that Steve has taken up a job with SHIELD he instinctively heads south on I-95, settling in Washington, DC, where he knows the SHIELD headquarters are.

Bucky’s not sure that he’s ever going to have the courage to approach Steve, given everything, but somehow knowing that he’s close is a comfort.

The INSIGHT fiasco happens.  Fury is shot, Steve goes into the wind, DC is in an uproar.  Bucky’s working as a street-sweeper on K Street when he gets word of the attack on the Roosevelt Bridge, and instinctively hauls ass there, running as fast as he can - onlookers be damned (it’s not as if the Red Room still exists to try to collect him, anyway).  And when he sees the familiar blond in certain danger, Bucky lets his instincts take-over, fighting like hell against gunmen to protect both civilians and the blond punk that he’s spent the past 60 years missing.  Between Bucky, Steve, the redhead with a ridiculous punch, and the black man with the robot wings (Steve still manages to find the weirdest fucking friends), they’re actually able to fight off whoever the hell the group of terrorists are, then commandeer one of their vans and book it away.

And as the random brunette woman with a hell of a shot drives the get away car, and the rest of the people involved in the fight turn to Bucky to both thank him and ask who the hell he is, he and Steve make eye contact for the first time and the whole damned world grinds to a stop.  The black man is in the middle of asking if everything is alright when Steve finally croaks the word “Bucky?” 

And Bucky, who’d imagined walking up to Steve and saying hi again every day for the past two years (although had never quite pictured a situation this fucked up), does his damndest to smirk while responding, “Hey, Steve.  Yeah - it’s me.”

He expects a punch, or a million questions about how the hell he survived, or where he’s been, or why he’s here now.

Instead, he gets 240 pounds of super-soldier surging over the back of the seat in front of him and pressing a rough, desperate kiss to his lips.

It’s the best surprise he’s had in years.

Also, how many grievers would they have made for this purpose? What if the grievers rebelled and decided to do they own shit? Wouldn’t wckd be fucked then?

·      Oh look its Aris. The loner emo boy wearing a hoodie. Remind you of anything?

·      How old is Aris again? He looks like he’s 13.

·      Thomas be like: no let me see her. Such devotion.

·      Please don’t pick a fight with a guard.

·      Yes Thomas, just walk away.

·      Bunk beds. Why is it always bunk beds?

Btw, you guys are awesome! [thumbs up]

·      ava paige [sitting down and signing pages like a boss]

·      its good to see that the boss is a woman though

·      oh wait let me correct myself, she’s a “doctor”…doctor my ass, more like a lady killer who just wants to dissect children for money.

·      Seriously Thomas you need to calm the fuck down and just tell everyone else what’s going on

·      Great acting though, Dylan O’Brien [thumbs up]

·      #Follow Thomas the leader…or should I say Thomas the tank engine? Ha ha just kidding.

·      Thomas and Newt breaking glass. #Teamwork

·      aww Thomas carried Teresa

·      Lots of door barging/blocking moments

·      Everyone keeps shouting Thomas! Like we get it. Everyone is obsessed with him.

·      Why is Thomas always the last one to leave? Or the one who stays behind. It’s like he willingly tries to be the last one standing. Stop isolating yourself Thomas. Everyone knows your chances of survival are better when you’re in a group, not when you’re alone. Thomas is so dumb sometimes.

·      Yay Aris. #Aris the hero. What a wildcard!

·      Is Teresa barefoot?

·      Thomas: *shoots at guys with shields with tazer gun. Gun runs out of ammo. Throws away gun before he starts to run for it.*

·      Man that running and sliding under the closing door was epic

·      Yeah Thomas. U GO!

·      Best bit in movie-Thomas giving Ratman the finger [applause]

·      I bet Dylan O’Brien improvised this scene

·      HILARIOUS

·      How did they manage to run out people on aircraft and dirt bikes?

·      How can they see where they’re going?

·      Wow lots of sand.

·      Of course he doesn’t have a plan Newt. Its Thomas!

·      lol, mountain people

·      The Right Arm reference

·      Wardrobe change

·      It’s really dark

·      Something bad is bound to happen soon

·      Suspenseful music

·      No Minho don’t turn on the generator!

·      HOLY SHIT, CRANK!

·      HOLY SHIT MORE CRANKS!

·      Run bitches run!

·      Are they inside a mall?

·      Mall chase scene

·      Man, these cranks are scary AF

·      This film is really fast-paced though. It just goes from one scene to another like that-[clicks fingers]

·      Oh look its daytime. Its always safer in daytime

·      NEXT TIME ON GLADERS VS WILD

·      The graphics are great though

·      Sand dunes

·      so much sand everywhere

·      Another Thomesa scene YAY!

·      Wait teresa has her memories?

·      Ooh wait…that means…oh okay

·      Wtf Winston

·      Oh god he’s infected

·      Why is this scene being carried out like page 250.

·      He even says: ‘I don’t want to end up a monster’

·      Depressing death scene when its not even halfway through the movie

·      Wait they’re just leaving the gun with him? Oh ok.

·      Everyone just walks away

·      Goodbye Winston

·      Choreographed halting after sound of gunshot. Nice.

·      RIP WINSTON

·      NO MORE WATER

·      Minho why would you throw the bottle away? You could’ve saved it for later! You’re in a wasteland for Christ’s sake!

·      Sleeping in the middle of the dessert. NICE.

·      Thomas: I see the light!

·      A storm is coming…jks the storm hit immediately in just 10 seconds

·      Ahhh MINHO

·      Minho got hit

·      Character that almost dies but doesn’t trope

·      Minho after getting told he got hit by lightning: ‘Oh”

·      Oh Minho you’re so cute

·      Everyone turns around and sees a crank

·      [I literally jumped when I saw it]

·      More cranks. Wonderful.

·      Oh look who it is. Brenda.

·      GIANCARLO!

·      Brenda’s got sass

·      Ha ha lol, they’re all hanging upside down

·      Minho’s sass lines have appeared!

·      Interrogation time

·      JorgexBrenda moment. How sweet.

·      Wait what? Jorge wants to play music? DAFQ

·      Ha ha wckd is confused

·      This is some old ass music for a film that set in the future. I mean they’re still using cd records. Really? I mean shouldn’t it be coming out of like a boom box or something. It’d be funny if they played Gangnam Style or something. It’d be even funnier if there was an ad before the song played.

·      No Thomas don’t go after Brenda.

·      Seriously though.

·      Thomas is like Percy Jackson, never leaves a man behind. Or woman in this case.

·      Wckd guards are idiots. They’re in shooting range!

·      OHHH SO IT WAS A BOMB TRIGGER SEQUENCE

·      AWESOME

·      That was clever though

·      So many scenes in complete darkness

·      Stop having Trenda scenes

·      Why are you going deeper into the tunnel?

·      Thomas: ‘you think?’ another question. Thank you, Thomas. [sings Girls Generation in my head.]

·      It’s a rat. Gross.

·      Oh and now a crank is eating the rat. RIP rat.

·      It’s time to go now trenda.

·      RUN. Stop standing there. RUN!

·      Oh for Christ sake

·      Epic chase sequence

·      Wow that is some really nice graphics. Really nice.

·      I hate the cranks though

·      Wes wasn’t joking when he said they were scary

·      The cranks look like some RPG zombie game shit

·      Rock climbing

·      Yeah Thomas! Kill that crank!

·      Brenda’s infected. Great. She’s so gonna die…NOT.

·      Finally, there are actually civilians who aren’t trying to hunt down the protagonists or sell them for money.

·      Who the hell is Marcus anyway?

·      Oh that actor. Why is he everywhere? He’s the douchebag bad guy in Dollhouse as well.

·      Yeah sure, just take whatever drink a stranger offers you. Even if they’re acting real shady about it and keep insisting you drink it and go into the party. I mean, I get that you’re trying to find the others but srsly? Would they actually be dumb enough to walk into that party?

·      Yay a party scene

·      OMFG THOMAS IS HIGH

·      Great acting Dylan O’Brien

·      Lol this is hilarious

·      Walk into da club like wow I am so fucked right now

·      Crank execution in a club, why not?

·      For a second I thought the guy killing that crank was Ben.

·      Blue lighting

·      Blue and white are such predominant colours in this film.

·      Okay now Thomas is really high.

·      Hallucinations

·      Eww not Trenda

·      Brenda is so fucking desperate right now

·      Technically you’re not the only two left. You just haven’t found the others.

·      Oh for Christ’s sake you’re both high. Have some restraint would ya?

·      No THOMAS NO

·      Don’t you dare!

·      Fucking hell he kissed her

·      WHY IS IT STILL GOING?

·      Oh now he’s kissing Teresa

·      YAY Thomesa kiss!

·      Jks its only a hallucination

·      Thomas: ‘you’re not her’

·      Poor Brenda. #REJECTED

·      Thomesa spark is still alive

·      Yes Thomas, I knew I could believe in you

·      Thomas blacks out…again

·      Teresa: ‘we have to stop meeting like this’ ha ha lol.

·      Wait so that guy was Marcus?

·      Violent interrogation

·      Threatening by use of death

·      Bertha????

·      Oh it’s a truck.

·      Wait a second… that looks like Stiles’ truck. They’re both blue. Mindfuck.

·      Lol Newt looks so excited to be inside a truck. Ha ha. So cute <3

·      Ambush

·      There sure are a lot of guns in this movie.

·      Oh look Group B finally makes an appearance

·      Aww! Aris, Harriet and Sonya reunite

·      Why do Sonya and Aris seem to have a thing for each other? Maybe it’s just me but she seems way to happy to see him.

·      Who the heck is Vince?

·      Oh look its Thomas’ mom.

·      Don’t remember? Oh okay…

·      Wait Thomas is the Source?

·      Oh so he’s been backstabbing wckd for ages.

·      Good on you Thomas!

·      I feel like Thomas is the only one with an actual conscience.

·      Of course Brenda gets the cure.

·      Yes Thomas, just stealthily reach into her pocket whilst she’s asleep. #totes not a perv

·      Wait Brenda had a brother? His name is George?/Jorge?

·      Wait don’t tell me her brother was Chuck?

·      Brenda: you remind me of him-WOAH don’t tell me Thomas is her brother

·      Brenda: ‘they didn’t want me’ #REJECTED…again

·      YAY Thomesa flashback

·      Just kiss already

·      Newt calling Thomas ‘Tommy’

·      Just when you think your favourite characters are finally safe…it’s bound to get a whole lot worse.

·      OHHHHH Teresa! Why?????

·      I saw this coming though

·      Thomas looks so disappointed in her.

·      Teresa quoting Thomas

·      So sad

·      The ship is no longer sailing

·      #Betrayed

·      Enter Darth Ava [lol]

·      Ava paige reminds me of President Snow. They both wear white.

·      Ratman you son of a bitch.

·      RIP Mary.

·      Oh lol she must be named after Marie Curie.

·      Explosions!

·      No not Minho. Don’t take away my oppa!

·      Come on Thomas! Rescue him.

·      NO oppa, don’t go!

·      Oh yes, it has to end with inspiring speech time executed by Thomas

·      Thomas: ‘I made a promise to Minho.’ THOMINHO IS REAL!

·      And so it ends.

·      Ha lol the number of times everyone said ‘shit’ in this movie

Glob I am so gonna cry in the last movie.

·      The Death Cure: the journey of Thomas trying to save his BFF Minho who he is secretly gay for whilst dealing with the fact that his crush Teresa betrayed him. I can’t wait!

·      God what am I going to do with my life as I wait for the next one?

Communication Error

Summary: When Geoff calls Ryan in the middle of the night professing his love, Ryan reaches one immediate, obvious conclusion: he’s drunk. 

Except he’s not drunk the second time, or the third, and suddenly “Lone Wolf” Haywood is left re-evaluating his feelings for his boss, and, surprisingly, opening up to him more. There’s just one problem - there’s been a mix-up with their phones, and thanks to Team Same Voice, neither of them realise that Geoff thinks he’s talking to his boyfriend, Jack.

(ramwood/gents ot3/mayvin GTA AU)

a/n: Thanks to houseofhaywood for the amazing prompt!

AO3

This is not set in the Sealand verse, although there may be some similarities in Ryan’s characterisation, as this was originally a suggestion for something that could happen in Sealand which I’ve instead written as a separate GTA story :)

Later Ryan would look back and wonder how, exactly, such a monumental misunderstanding could have occurred. How was it possible that a man who had been in a loving and committed relationship for four years should be unable to recognise his own boyfriend’s voice? How did two of the most notorious criminals in modern America manage to find themselves entangled in a drama more suitable to a teenaged soap opera? Who was to blame?

The answer to this last being, as usual: Gavin. Gavin was to blame.

dating kim taehyung would include...

lmao guess who’s doing this instead of studying for finals~~~~~ enjoy fam

- meeting him and the first thing out of his mouth being “holy crap you are so beautiful” and then getting all shy and not speaking for the rest of the night bb just couldn’t hold it in you are truly a stunner 

- having to convince him later that it was very sweet and that he did not humiliate himself for the rest of all time for giving you a genuine compliment homeboy just rly wants u to like him ok 

- him yelling “here comes my part!!!!!” whenever you listen to bangtan music together 

- trying to eat at different restaurants together but ending up at the same place every single time bc neither of you can decide on a new place to go and the old place has a counter with tall chairs to sit in and really who doesn’t love a good swivel on those things

- meeting his parents after like 3 dates and realizing how much he’s already told them about you because they literally know where you went to school, what your favorite constellation is, how many sugars you take in your coffee, and idk your blood type probably 

- leaving your phone alone for five minutes and coming back to find 4 perfect head shots and 206 blurry selfies in your camera roll (and keeping every single one of them) 

- running out of memory from said selfies and having to load them onto your computer because you can’t get yourself to delete them 

- watching big hero 6 together every single week and seeing who starts crying first (it’s usually him) 

- taking long walks together holding hands while he swings your arms together and points out all the dogs that walk past   

- him staying up late with you while you study and knowing you need a break and pulling you into his lap and giving you little neck kisses to help you relax woowowoww those sure do do the trick every time 

- “jagi… would it be okay if jimin came to the movies with us…” 

- borrowing your clothes all the time because he never washes his and that fuchsia sweater just looks really flattering on him okay  

- sweet bb running up to you first after a performance all sweaty and out of breath and kissing the heck out of you and screaming “how did we do baby?? did you like it???” 

- him being bisexual af and you guys scoping out hot guys together at the mall because couples do that right???? 

- not really arguing a lot but whenever you do it lasts like a few hours max bc you miss hearing him giggle and he misses giving u back hugs :( it’s a hard life w/o back hugs 

- him absolutely loving 500 miles by the proclaimers and making you listen to it on repeat during card rides because he wants to sing it to you while you pretend you’re not hopelessly in love with him at this point 

- “gee jagi it’s too bad that you can’t see our new comeback yet :) i mean i’d really like to show it to you but you know i can’t and wow if only you knew what was coming because you would no- ow ow ow okay i’ll stOP I’M SORRY” 

- seeing that he’s having a sad day and doing impersonations of the other members to make him laugh right as namjoon walks in on you putting two fingers over your left eye while screaming what am i to you and none of you can help it it’s hilarious and you lose your shit and now everyone’s day is better

- lots of “ewww”s and “you guys are so gross”s and “taehyung didn’t you wear that outfit yesterday did you even come home last night” 

- you being the big spoon 99.9% of the time 

- skype calls where he tries to have a real conversation with you but all the other members wanna mess around as usual so it usually just becomes you laughing / yelling at jungkook to “be careful with that lamp mister” and “hoseok keep you foot away from tae’s balls i need those for later cmon now” 

- forgetting to breathe for like 30 minutes while you’re making out so when you finally come up for air he’s covered in your lipstick and your hair’s all messed up and you’re both gasping for air wow true modern romance :’)

- going out to dinner with the members and them automatically leaving a place next to tae for you 

- somehow always getting each other the perfect gifts for birthdays even though you never tell each other what you want because “your love is all that i need babe :)” god y’all suck 

- lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of warm cuddles and kisses and “i love you” and “i miss you” and “babe can you wake me up tomorrow in case i sleep though my alarm” and “do you think (insert random animal here) can fall in love?” and “put some clothes on my parents are gonna be here soon” and “i know you can do it baby” and “how do you feel about pizza again tonight” and “text me when you get home so i know you’re safe” and “can you come kill this bug for me” and “i am so happy that i met you” 

- knowing that you’ll probably be together forever when you wake up one morning and his hair is all in his face and his mouth is hanging open a little and his arm is still hanging over your waist (how does he even keep it there the whole night who even knows) and realizing that this is the the most beautiful special boy you’ll ever meet and no amount of kicking you in the middle of the night or crying because he’s been away for a month and you’re lonely or leaving your nail polish open after borrowing it could ever change that

- the end rip 

Just Friends- Liam Dunbar Imagine

Request: could you maybe do a imagine where y/n and liam are best friends and are always kinda handsy with each other like giving hugs, holding onto each other, holding hands in any situation and then on one pack night (y/n is part of the pack) the pack is teasing liam and y/n because theyre cuddling and liam kinda starts freaking out because holy crap its SO not platonic and his feelings are DEFINITELY romantic then y/n calms him down and they kiss and admit their true feelings or something idk???

“Hey.” I say, smiling to my best friend, Liam.

“Hi, come on in.” He steps to the side, giving me access into his house.

The whole pack was coming over for a pack night, which was pretty much a night off for all of us to just take a second to relax. We would usually just watch a movie or play a game.

This week we were having it at Liam’s house, whose parent’s were gone for the weekend. I was glad we were going to be hanging out here for the night, I had been here a countless amount of times to the point that it was practically my second home.

Liam and I had been best friends ever since we were first introduced after he was bitten by Scott. I found myself feeling a lot of comfort when I was around him. He always knew what to say, how to make me feel better. On many occasions, he was my rock.

“When’s everyone getting here?” I ask, dragging Liam over to the couch by his hand.

“About 30 minutes, why?” He replies as we both plop down onto the couch and I immediately snuggle into his side and Liam wraps his arm around my shoulders.

“I don’t know, I’m kind of tired though, I had to get up early to help out my mom. You wouldn’t mind if I took a quick nap, would you?" I feel butterflies erupt in my stomach when I look into his eyes.

"Uh…sure. I don’t see why not. I’ll wake you in 15 minutes.” He smiled down to me and I took as my go. So I laid down on the couch, my feet on his lap.

I rest my head on one of the plush pillows and scoot closer to the edge of the couch, leaving room for Liam to lie with me.

I nudge him with my foot. “Well, don’t leave me hanging.” I say in a mocking tone.

“Ah, what the hell.” He exclaims before taking a place behind me, wrapping his arms around my stomach, and resting his face into my neck.

“Your alarm better work.” I whisper before shutting my eyes and falling asleep.

~~~

Liam’s POV

For the first ten minutes on the couch together all I did was look at (Y/N). As non-creepy as that sounds.

I loved watching her be so peaceful like this. A good amount of the time all (Y/N) ever did was stress out over everything, I mean she had a right to, but it was just horrible to watch.

Sometimes she would push herself too much and have a panic attack. I was usually the one to help her with those. Bringing her into a secluded room and reminding (Y/N) to just focus on breathing. It would work, but her pained face after the episode was over was the worst of it all.

That’s why I liked to see her be in a state of peace for just a little while. She looked so beautiful. Even if she had a huge crease in the middle of her forehead and lips were squished together like a fish. I couldn’t help but wonder what it would be like to kiss (Y/N). Because, god, did I want to.

I felt myself drifting off to sleep, determined to make sure we woke up before the rest of the pack arrived, knowing full well the would never let us live it down. Especially Stiles.

~~~

 I could hear the faintest giggling close by. At first, I figured it was (Y/N) laughing in her sleep. Until I remembered that the pack was coming over and I hadn’t heard my phone alarm.

I shot straight up from my sleeping position only to cause an uproar of laughter from none other than Scott, Lydia, Kira, Malia, and of course Stiles.

“You two like to get cozy, now don’t you?” Malia chimes, as they all take a seat on the couch. Lydia takes the liberty to put in the movie while everyone continues to mock me.

I choose to ignore them for a minute, looking down to (Y/N) and shaking her awake. She sits up rubbing her eyes, which go wide at the sight of everyone already in the room.

She look to me, “You said you were gonna set the alarm.” (Y/N) attempts to whisper, but everyone is able to hear her very clearly.

“Don’t worry, lovebirds, we don’t mind if you snuggle some more during the movie.” Stiles jokes, shooting me a wink while I send him a death glare.

“We’re not lovebirds!” We both say simultaneously.

“If you say so.” The jokester mumbles, damn he never lets things go.

“I-I’m just gonna go to the bathroom.” (Y/N) says, bolting up from the couch and out of the room. I watch her cover her red face.

I bite on my thumbnail, obviously embarrassed by the fact that I couldn’t get my heart beat to slow down.

“So, what’s going on with you two?” Lydia asks, smiling lie I’ve never seen her smile before.

“Nothing!” I say, panicked that at any moment (Y/N) would return from the bathroom.

“Lie. Your heart is practically beating out of your chest. " Malia says with a smirk.

I feel my cheeks growing more and more red every second.

Scott tries and fails to come to my defense, "Guys, leave him alone. He already has tough time concealing his feelings for her as it is and-”

“Scott!” I exclaim, now humiliated. I keep looking to the door to make sure (Y/N) won’t walk in unexpectedly.

“Aww, Liam! Look how flustered you are! You should just ask her out!” Kira says giddily, thinking this is somehow adorable.  The rest of the pack hums in agreed harmony.

“Fine! I like (Y/N) okay, but she doesn’t like me. I’m fine with it, just please don’t tell her.” I huff, slightly scared at all of their shocked faces. Was it because of my confession? What were they expecting, of course I have feelings for her.

I can hear someone clear their throat behind me and I turn around terrified, because I already know whose there. (Y/N).

“I-uh. I-I’m just go into the kitchen to get some, uh, snacks. So, yeah.” She says, not even making eye contact with me while she sheepishly walks through the kitchen door.

“Oh my god.” I say into my hands. The rest of the pack stays silent, knowing I’m embarrassed enough already.

I have to explain myself to her. I stand up and make my way over into the kitchen. My hands are shaking as I walk in, seeing (Y/N) sitting in front of island, her face covered with her hands.

“(Y/N)?” She looks up to me and immediately stands up from her seat. She stays quiet.

“Look, I am so sorry about that. I don’t expect you to return the feelings or anything so-”

“Shut up.” She says, moving closer and closer to me.

“Why?” I’m shocked when she kisses me. I immediately kiss back, resting my hands on her waist.

She pulls back, “I like you too.” She smiles, and I kiss her again.

A shout comes from the other room, “You two better be keeping it PG in there!”

We both laugh at Stiles’ comment and walk back into the room, our hands intertwined.

 

anonymous asked:

Hey I'm a freshman and I'm super nervous for my first musical audition in HS. I'm really scared any advice? I just want to do as good as I can. It's a musical I really like so I just want my audition to go well.

I AM HERE TO SAVE YOU, ANON. HAVE NO FEAR. K so imma break it down into the 3 sections, hope this helps

1. DANCING

the one that you can’t really prepare for. idk if u dance or not, so this could be really easy or really stressful. you will be taught a short combo and probably asked to do it in really small groups by the end. just don’t stress yourself out too much for this one. you have the least control over it so your time is probably better spent worrying about something else. just go in, don’t be afraid to ask questions or for the choreographer to repeat/explain something again. have fun!

2. READING

so u will probe get this in advance (relatively). you don’t need to memorize, but def get familiar with the scenes. i don’t know if u do this in front of everyone who is auditioning like we do, but DONT FREAK OUT. i know it seems scary, but i can guarantee everyone else is feeling nervous as well. if you mess up (skip a line, mess up a sentence,etc) it. is. not. the. end. of. the. world. chilllllllll. ur good. also: don’t be afraid to make choices! if ur going somewhere in the middle it may be tempting to do what everyone else is doing, but if you want to try it a different way… go for it!

3. SINGING

ok so i will not blame u for being scared for this. its hella scary. 3 main points of advice: 1) if you mess up do not panic. continue. and if god forbid you mess up so baldy that you have to start over that is ok!!!!! they aren’t going to hurt you if you ask to restart. 2) prepare properly. practice as much as you can. choose an appropriate song for the character you are going for.both vocally and character wise. like, i wouldn’t audition for my fair lady with a song from rent. do ur research. 3) ACT THE SONG! if you stand still with ur arms and legs crossed it is gonna show you aren’t confident. think about what the song means, about who you are talking to. what do you want? how are you gonna get what you want? think of the song as a monologue. perform the song. don’t just sing it.

i hope this will be useful! break a leg xoxox

anonymous asked:

someone's probably already said this but - asoiaf for the fandom meme

  • 1. Favorite one-off episode of any series.

For the show, my favourite episode is still probably Blackwater - it definitely feels like the most complete episode and i like that it doesn’t jump from location to location. Focusing on King’s Landing gives it a really intense, almost film-like quality imo. For the books, my favourite chapter is probably Sansa’s last in a storm of swords - beautiful imagery, building Winterfell in the snow, revelations about Littlefinger’s long game and the true beginning of Sansa’s transformation from pawn to player. The objective best chapter is probably a tie between the red wedding and cersei ii in adwd. Really unsettling and unforgettable prose.

  • 2. Favorite villain

This is always a hard question to answer for asoiaf because one of the central concepts of this series is - who is a villain? What makes a person villainous? I mean, Cersei’s arc alone is reflective of this - in the first book she’s almost certainly the antagonist, arguably even the main one, but a feast for crows is a book that centers on her perspective in which she sees herself as the hero. Theon is a similar pov that shifts and changed between antagonism and protagonism. Dany is almost certainly seen as a villain by many in the story, but we only see her world from her perspective so she is the hero to us, see what I mean? I couldn’t choose, I don’t think. Maybe Melisandre? The characters who are almost completely villains - Roose, Ramsay, The Mountain - have no redeeming qualities imo. (Except show!roose. STUPID SEXY ROOSE)

  • 3. Least favorite “main character”

Just gonna throw it out there - don’t really give a shit about Robb. And like, I really feel like we’re not supposed to? The series is about the grey areas and the people who are marginalized in society and their stories and Robb has pretty much every privilege you can get in Westeros (like Ned did) and so he had to go. And like I really have always seen him as an accessory to Catelyn’s story - he dies so her arc can complete and she can become Lady Stoneheart. I think that shows with how got tried to flesh Robb out and failed completely.

  • 4. Favorite “sidekick”

Hmmm… maybe Podrick? He’s pretty sweet and genuine, and I like him as a side character in both Tyrion and Brienne’s stories. I also really like the Dothraki crew and I hope we see more of them in books to come (fuck the show on the real for what it did to them tbh). also AREO HOTAH I LOVE EVERYONE IN DORNE SO MUCH

  • 5. Character you love to hate.

Tywin for sure. Like even if you use the defence (and ive seen a lot of people do this) that the majority of his actions are just strategy, he fucked up his kids big time and thus he is the worst. But its like OH MY GOD DANNY DEVITO I LOVE YOUR WORK because he’s that kind of fantastically evil character that masterminds shit like the red wedding and u gotta give him mad props for that. He’s one of the few characters who the show has made me enjoy even more, probably because Charles Dance plays him so amazingly. He’s like, so cold and deadly in every scene he’s in even when he’s saying like ‘prepare my horse’ HE LOOKS LIKE HE IS ABOUT TO MURDER SOMEONE IT’S SO GREAT YOU’RE SO EVIL

  • 6. Favorite friendship

I really, really love Jaime and Brienne’s relationship. I don’t ~ship them (u dont mess with no valonqar business tbh), but their road trip hijinks are THE BEST and i love how they go from animosity to grudging team work to YEAH MAN ILL GIVE YOU THIS SWORD MY DAD MADE ME BECAUSE I DIDN’T HAVE A BFF NECKLACE. And I really like how the concepts of masculinity/femininity and conventional/unconventional beauty play into their dynamic, and into the greater Catelyn/Brienne/Jaime/Cersei square.

  • 7. Friendship that never felt real to you.

Margaery and Sansa, over here

  • 8. Favorite wise-guy/jokester character

…Not really many of these in Westeros, lmao. I guess Jaime??? I mean a lot of people like Tyrion for his humor, and fair enough, but I think Jaime’s is just a bit more biting and I like that edge of nastiness lmao. The scene in (i think) Clash of Kings when Catelyn confronts him is SO INTENSE and like their wordplay/throwing jibes is so vicious and awesome, I was really sad when they changed that in the show because in the books it was the first time we had really seen/heard from Jaime and not just hearsay/him throwing a kid out a window and idk it influenced my opinion of him a lot when I first read it. I have many feelings about Jaime Lannister middle child fuckup tragedy magnet LETS TALK ABOUT IT (also i really loved how they clearly said he was dyslexic on the show. very rare props D&D)

  • 9. Least favorite villain

Tie between Ramsay and the Mountain, with Ramsay probably just winning out because we actually have to read all the vile shit he does instead of just hearing about it like with Gregor. I don’t have any love for Walder Frey or his ilk either but like, read the Reek chapters in ADWD and then we can go group vomit together jesus christ. Also I’m not sure but i’m pretttty sure i’m reading the subtext right and euron abused aeron when they were kids and that fucker has got to go, all the way to the drowned god, do not pass go do not collect $200

  • 10. Least favorite season long storyline

You know, they’re DEAD and i still dont get the point of robb/talisa. like, where were they tryna go with that? If they had made her a lannister spy (!!) or like, vaguely interesting at all i would understand, but they didn’t and then they stabbed her in the baby and it was like bye? I guess? I dont know why they couldn’t have just had jeyne westerling but oh well. and like lmao wooow did u fuck up rull bad with season 2 dany’s story like it was literally just a whole season of ‘WHERE ARE MY DRAGONS’ i don’t know dany!! i dont know where they are!

As for the books, GET DANY THE FUCK TO WESTEROS. Her ghis/mereen arc is a fucking hot ass mess and i thank jesus she’s back in the dothraki sea because according to quaithe’s prophecy she’s gotta go like up, down, forward, back, do the shuffle whatever AND go to asshai before she even GETS to westeros and it makes me tired just thinking about it t b h

  • 11. Talk about a character with a bad story or character arc.

My feelings about dany are really complicated because I really like her as a character, and I like her personal arc - her story in the first book is hands down the best metamorphosis is the series yet (i have a feeling sansa’s will be better when it’s complete, but that’s a different story). But there are so many issues that come up during her story - in all of the essos plots, really - and it sours me a little on her arc as a whole? Like I said, get her to westeros, get her MOVING, don’t let her be this stagnant character sticking her head in places it doesn’t belong and bringing her gross colonialism analogies with her. Other than that, would have to say Shae. One of the rare characters I think grrm didn’t handle well at all,  and i’m worried about how the show will handle her, especially as they’ve expanded on her character and given her the awesome friendship with sansa.

  • 12. Character that just pisses you off no matter how much you try to like them.

Oh, Theon. I’m so conflicted about Theon because on one hand, I really don’t like him. Like, just straight up irritated me from the first mention didn’t like him and I thought that would stay the same and then adwd happened and it’s like. I can’t tell if i like him or i just feel bad for him? and like i know that’s what grrm is going for, grey morality and all that, but yEAH I JUST DON’T KNOW

  • 13. Plot device used too much

Definitely the sexpoisiton on the show. Having long backstory monologues is not made better or more interesting if someone is having sex at the same time THIS LESSON YOU MUST LEARN. For the books it’s more difficult because so much of what grrm does is take standard epic/high fantasy ttropes and devices and deconstruct them or flip them on their head so I don’t feel like he really overuses anything??? That   being said pretty much every main character has had some horrific violation/trauma happen to them and its like ENOUGH DEAR GOD ENOUGH

  • 14. Favorite character death scene

I feel like the red wedding is the obvious answer and like i can appreciate it on like, a pure literary level but actually reading it made me feel really sick lmao. I think Tywin’s death was really awesome and cathartic in a complete Greek Tragedy sort of way, and the ‘IT TURNED OUT IN THE END, TYWIN LANNISTER DID NOT SHIT GOLD’ was so good omg ITS LIKE RAAAIN ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

  • 15. An abandoned or unanswered plot line that will always bug you.

GUYS I AM SO WORRIED ABOUT THE MAESTERS. WHAT ARE THEY DOING? WHAT IS THEIR PLAN? ARE THEY WORKING FOR THE OTHERS? DID THEY ORCHESTRATE ROBERT’S REBELLION TO GET RID OF THE TARGARYENS AND THEIR DRAGON LEGACY ONCE AND FOR ALL? GLASS CANDLES? JAQEN AND ELLARIA SAND???? I’M STRESSED!!
