idk the chances of that happening are though

i guess you probably remember me being “vague” and “teasing stuff” in the past
guess I can reveal some 

one (i might have mentioned that before though) is that i found out about the songs and their names back in november of last year (no, i can’t tell you where) but it was shortly before idk played the first emo nite show and just then did i know that it was actually something new that was happening just now

another thing is that i randomly checked Apple Music now and again to see if maybe IDK had uploaded music (slim chance but who knew with them being all sneaky and having us find stuff) and well end of July I searched for modern day cain because that was likely gonna be the first single and what do you know, this turned up

nothing showed up when you viewed the band but that meant it was being set up

can’t really think of other things i’ve been teasing…

Like many–I was there during the Zutara vs Kataang wars. Years down the road I finally decided to get back into the series and attempt to rekindle my love for it. Due to being shamed for my shipping preference by the creators themselves and fans, I sort of let my love for Zutara die. Thanks to my significant other and her found love for it, I found myself loving it just as I had when I was younger. Soooo being on the Zutara side of the shipping spectrum, I of course paid a visit to that tag first, before anything else. I read posts by the wonderful people of tumblr and found out all these years later that seeing something there wasn’t just part of my imagination. That it WAS going to be canon and…idk seeing that makes me feel validated again??

Like from the beginning I was always accepting that Katara would end up with Aang, in fact–I saw it coming and was never hopeful or even thought that Zutara would be end-game in a million years. I wasn’t spiteful towards Kataangers bc I thought the shipping wars were dumb in the first place….

Still, there was a chance and somehow, even though it DIDN’T happen in the end? I still feel like that sort of DOES make it canon in its own way?

So in the end both sides of the shipping war kind of won? IDK. I was never one of the bat-shit insane Zutarian’s who threatened to take their lives over the ship… Nor did I cry and rage at Bryke. The only time Bryke made me feel a bit upset at them was when they immediately started disrespecting a huge portion of their own fanbase, MOCKING them and poking fun at how terrible the Zutara ship was and how it was impossible.

Thinking back on it–Now that I’m not just a teenaged fangirl and I dabble in writing myself? Calling anything in your own story impossible? It’s a sign of your incompetence when it comes to writing. Seeing the bad writing in the LoK ( which I still did like but feel it could never surpass its predecessor series ) proved that to me.

I’m sorry but as a lesbian myself? The way the K/o//rra///s/a//mi pairing was played out and claimed to be a thing from the beginning was total BS to me. I felt like it was a sad attempt to cover up inconsistencies and bad story telling, shoving a pairing in our face and claiming it was planned from the start so that we’ll be happy because OMG THEY TOTALLY WENT THERE!!!!

So I guess I wrote this all just to say? I’m happy. Happy that in some alternative version of the story that the amazing Aaron Ehasz allowed our babies to end up together. That in SOMEONES eyes, Katara wasn’t just a prize to be won. She wasn’t just “the avatars girl”. She didn’t SUDDENLY figure everything out in such a short amount of time and decide that Aang was the ONE for her even though she’d previously JUST claimed she was confused and unsure.

That in some alternative world, there was going to be some build up and not just ‘omg zuko ilu lmao’. A real love story–Something Bryke seems incapable of writing. SIGHS.

Sometimes I wish that Bryke would give him the rights to add that season he’d been planning.. They could even claim it to be non-canonical if that’d make them more comfortable. It could be a netflix exclusive and everything but it would definitely breathe new life into the beloved series and let everyone be happy. I know they won’t and it’s impossible given what they set in stone—but it’s a nice dream. LOL.

Still even if it never happens. Zutara WAS canon in several of the writers and artists true vision and that’s good enough for this fan.

Does anybody else ever wonder about what would have happened if Faith had run into Buffy right after waking up from her coma, instead of looking through that window and seeing Buffy not even with Angel anymore and then getting that tape from the Mayor? 

Because when she first woke up, she was lost. She did not look angry or out for blood, imo, she knew that she’d lost, that the Mayor was gone, Buffy won, she had nothing. To me she seemed like she was just trying to figure out where to turn, what to do. She was desperate. 

And Buffy, Buffy actually felt guilty for “killing” Faith, she wanted to make amends, or at least hoped that Faith wanted that. The first thing that Buffy asks Faith when Faith turns up at the school is if she’s okay, and even Giles wonders if there’s some form of rehabilitation that might work for her

Like, idk, maybe I’m just being naive, but it seems like there really was a chance there. that they could have moved past what had happened, to a degree, if Faith had been willing to own up to her actions and try to be better, which looked like it really could have been a possibility at the beginning, and we see just a little later does happen on ats.

You guys know how much I love Faith and Angel’s friendship, but I will readily admit that I would have loved to see Faith’s redemption play out on btvs. Even though Faith wouldn’t want to admit it, she was inspired by Buffy, and was desperate for somebody to care about her. I don’t think anyone can deny that Buffy cared a hell of a lot, though she always ended up expressing it when Faith wasn’t in the room, because of course.

14 —schei-letzebuerg

14: What popular ship do you not like?

Definitely USUK! I know I am going to get flamed to hell for this but I can’t stand it for a bunch of reasons!

First is the age difference

Now the ages aren’t the biggest deal when it comes to immortal beings, especially when by the same token any nationXhuman relationship is pedophilic, but something about how England was a father figure to america as expressed in the show seems weird to me. Especially the concept of getting screwed by your “son”! Idk if this is just me, but as a rule of thumb if you changed their diapers you shouldn’t sleep with them. Picture source

Next is the historical inaccuracies that USUK fanfiction and fanart is prone to
From America raping England during the revolutionary war, to him jumping at the chance to help England during the first world war. I mean seriously guys? Historically, America was never the center of England’s world, and neither was it the other way around. Though this is prone to happen in all ships, where another nation’s world is dictated by another nation, I find USUK can be the worst about abusing this. The worst of this in my book is a few fics I’ve found that show England rushing to America’s aide during the revolutionary war. Really? 

For the Revolutionary War; America was fricking pissed, and so were his people! I mean, the colonies were angry enough to unite against a common enemy, which in case y’all didn’t know was really difficult. Most Americans, and likely including Alfred, believed in the Boston Massacre without a doubt. Looking at the famous drawing by Paul Revere, its easy to understand just how angry the colonists could be

For the American Civil War; Not only was England still spiteful over the revolution, he also wanted to ensure a weak America. This is just common sense! Wanting to ensure an enemy is weak is page one of the war book, and also the best way for England to ensure his people’s safety. He also never took actual part in the war; probably because the Great British Empire had other things on his mind than his long lost colony? Yeah, probably. 

For WWI
The US was very hesitant to become involved. As you can see with the cartoon below, it was a messy war! Europe was called a powder keg by the US because of how easy they dissolved into war and became problematic. To the US this was a foreign war, and one they shouldn’t care about. Europe’s problem. As Americans watched their loved ones die, they became spiteful to the whole of Europe in many ways, although the Lusitania does prove there may have been a little something going on between the personifications. From when the Lusitania was sunk, there is now quite a bit of evidence that the explosion from the torpedo was horribly spread by munitions the US was illegally shipping to England source, but still it was the Alimo of WWI as seen in the cartoon above.

For WWII 
Here is actually where I feel USUK is quite possible. Despite how the US drug its feet into becoming involved, Lend Lease with Kennedy’s famous speech about one’s neighbor’s house being on fire, chose sides for the US quite definitely source, but still then, England by far was not the only country helped as seen below. For USUK, despite the grittyness of the war where obviously there was likely no love blooming, there was a lot of US and English joint efforts for the war support. The British even enlisted US movie stars to search for German U2 rockets with the first 3D imaging! That being said, there was no possible way America was with England the whole time of the war. Between the US’ rush to find German Rocket Scientist Werner Von Braun and their plight in the pacific, I sincerely doubt the entire war was fought in France or Africa as some fanficitons would have you believe. 

Next is how most USUK fans treat the Fourth of July celebration.

I have BEEN to the White House’s celebration and fireworks (an example of which is below). I saw Bush in his pink shirt and everything. It is possibly the most american thing to ever american, yet most every fic I’ve seen about the fourth is filled with England crying and america comforting him. England isn’t an overly hormonal teenage girl and america kinda has better things to do like maybe the $675 million dollars to be made on firework sales alone this year? source imo America and England wouldn’t be hung up on this years later, or at least not let it show. They’re both big boys. Also, if you know anything about america politics, you know that Alfred would want to invite a beautiful woman with a nursing degree who is a part time model to any party he went to.

The USA and UK are still very different from each other 
Up until a few years ago, England still had a dedicated board for nobility. His royalty still very much exists, and despite how many young Americans recently have romanticized England’s Royalty, older Americans remember the tragedy that was Princess Dianna and the plight she went through to get her divorce, one of which many Americans sided with her on. Her photo below

Why is america always stereotypicaly dominant and suave? 
The US is very anti homosexuality compared to other nations, and much of this mentality is instilled in the same social group that fills our military. I find it quite hard to believe that the military based personification (based on how hima draws them) of the US would be willing to (in some Doujin and Fanfic cases) bully England into topping him, or at least calmly top without some discussion and communication beforehand. Navy has literally slept with men and told them “no homo” afterwards. There is that much of a bias against homosexuals, and while I’m all for representation I find it strange to just outright ignore the problem. Not only that, but anyone from outside the crazy would of tumblr and fangirls would be very much lost and confused by this. I don’t know about the rest of tumblr, but I try to write to a wider audience. 

Why is England turned into a hormonal preteen girl?
You know, once the UK was cornered by the Germans who had the world’s first rocket aimed right for them. You know what the British did? THEY INVENTED 3D IMAGING AND RADAR TO JUST BARELY NOT DIE! As much as my american heart hates to say it, the British are resourceful and damn near impossible to kill. Despite how they are now basically obsolete in capabilities compared to the other superpowers, the British still turn out technological advancements and pull crazy fucking shit out of their asses. If England himself was pressed against a wall by America, and didn’t want to be there, he would grAB THAT BITCH’S HAND TWIST IT BEHIND HIS BACK AND PIN HIM TO THE FLOOR. Bottoming doesn’t mean the character has to be weak, emotional, and moe. Also, why is he always crying and insecure? I understand you want to be able to relate to the character, but one should be able to put themself in the shoes of an adult man, a warrior, and a political force when writing a hetalia character, and understand that the personality of a teenage girl is not one he would poses, nor one that he cannonly possesses. 

In the end?
Its not so much USUK the concept that makes it my notp, it’s the fans and how they ship it. 

Note: 

  • Did I get my history wrong? Is there something you want to debate about? Please, reblog this or message me and I’ll be happy to listen and talk!
  • This doens’t encompass ask blogs since there is a vast amount of AUs and different circumstances
  • I’m not telling you to not ship USUK! If you like it them go ahead! I’m just explaining why I don’t like it.
  • APH America is who I was writing about. This doesn’t have to to with Navy, since if I was writing about navy i’d be writing about all the times he has killed England out of spite :p 

This was gonna be something but I never got around to finishing it lmao 

so here have a rough draft I guess

maybe i’ll finish it if i can think of other characters 

Omg, ya’ll need to chill. See, this is why a good majority of you guys followed me for, isn’t it? Everybody loves the jackaboy, don’t they? Everyone wants MORE JACK now don’t they!? -_-

*sigh* This is nothing against Jack or all his subscribers or anything. I love him, and I love the community he’s built, I think it’s all wonderful…it’s just that I’ve lost motivation to do Septic Quest because I felt stuck with it, trapped in a way. I felt like I was working at a job that I didn’t like and I couldn’t get out of it. Why? Because EVERYONE has been wanting it. Almost no one has given me a chance to expand my interest, not to mention start something entirely new. And so I hate it when I get asked this because I feel like it’s just dragging me back into it.

On the other hand, I do owe you guys an explanation of what’s gonna happen to it now. Because I feel like it’s a great story and that I want it to be known all throughout the community (cuz I believe it’ll teach these kids a lesson or two), I’m gonna hand it off to someone else. I’m not telling who though cuz idk if they’re comfortable with me telling everyone who it is. Plus I want it to be sort of a surprise. The only hint I’ll give is that she’s a very good friend of mine on tumblr. So no names yet. Also, idk when the next page will be up. I’ll try and get something going by the summer. Otherwise, I have no fucking idea…I’m exhausted….

Anyway, I’m going to bed. Cya.

anonymous asked:

Okay so, on the serial killer david au- do you know exactly what kind of victims he'd pick out? Like, he sees someone in a REALLY tacky sweater, man better kill that guy. or is it something else like he sees an adult slap a kid or get excessively mean and angry at a kid and that's when he gets an urge? Or is it just towards anyone, and the urge really has no rhyme or reason?

welp! i mean, a really tacky sweater sure makes a difference, but i do not think david is very picky, when it comes to possible victims. he doesn’t even really have a type, either - unless we consider “adult” a possible type description. he’s also more likely to attack men, but not exclusively.
like i said, the act of killing itself - and more like, finishing off a life - is more important than the victim’s identity.
of course, if he sees a child being mistreated it makes his blood boil, but it’s more likely that he’ll give a piece of his mind to said adult than to actually end up killing them. he’s not really motivated by justice or anything, and is pretty careful when it comes to choosing the right moment.
in a nutshell, he knows he has to lay low, but also recognizes the right situations.
in the end though, it’s sort of a spontaneous thing and more often than not, it just happens without much planning. chance meetings lead to chance situations, which lead to chances of acting on impulses.
also, sometimes david’s drunk and not careful enough, but that’s rare.

I feel like Im the only stressing about how expensive everything is +the magazines are $20 each+ the merch + the digital version of the album+ the tickets and I need to buy all of them to stand a chance in getting tickets

it is a lot but honestly this will probably sound annoying as hell but hoping for the best is never really a bad thing to do. im not stressing about the concert tickets much because i feel like there are always people selling tickets or idk something always happens cuz lorde knows i was not supposed to be at the red and 1989 tour until like 2 days before the actual shows i went to 😂 it looks like it’s gonna be pretty cut throat this time around though. people are gonna end up spending like a total of 1K (im kinda exaggerating) for a decent seat probably with this ticketmaster waitlist situation

Reylo Headcanon (inspired by a dream I had):

So it’s the scene where Rey and Kylo have their first kiss. They’re arguing at first (similarly to Han and Leia), and it’s getting intense (idk what they’d be arguing about though). Their emotions are going haywire, so haywire that their force powers are getting a little out of control. The wind is picking up and their surroundings are slightly tremoring. Rey turns to leave, but Kylo grabs her arm and, before either of them has a chance to think, pulls her into a passionate kiss. The wind stops suddenly and everything around them goes back to normal. But Rey and Kylo don’t notice, to them it’s like they’re the only two people in the universe.

HANNIBAL AU WHERE NOTHING BAD HAPPENED EVER

THE LECTER FAMILY ALL SURVIVED THE WAR UNHARMED

HANNIBAL NEVER BECAME A MURDERER OR CANNIBAL

FRANCIS WAS BORN HEALTHY, RAISED BY HIS MOTHER AND RECEIVED PROPER TREATMENT FOR HIS SCHIZOPHRANIA AND IS MAKING A GREAT RECOVERY

anonymous asked:

What do you expect from westallen on this year's chrismas episode? them cuddling in the middle of so many people and moving in together were complete surprise for me, I'm ready to be surprised again this year!

Idk! We got Barry confessing he’s in love with her in season 1. We got nada in season 2 (though that scene where she told him what was up w/ Wally & Francine was pretty amazing). In season 3, we got moving in, cuddliness, AND their first ILYs as a couple (prob). So, either this season will be pretty chill for them at midseason (esp if their wedding happens the week before during the crossover), and a different couple will get a chance to shine (i.e. cynco or jocile perhaps) or we’ll just get a bunch of really domestic sweet scenes. I honestly can’t imagine a bigger, more impactful life moment for them to have aside from Iris being pregnant/them deciding to start trying to have a baby, and that’s obvs not going to happen.

We’ll have to see!!

myblackmare replied to your photoset “Fancy pony decided to be a bulldozer with her new rider today �� She…”

Idk how you were brave enough to let someone else ride her!! I just about have a panic attack if someone else has to lead Lily, let alone ride her! :O

I was honestly about to have one when i got the message asking if she could come rider her. But i decided that if it works out, then it would do Rudi so much good to get to go out more than what i can provide. So even though im scared of her getting “ruined” and someone being injured, i’ve pretty much just decided to give it a chance and see what happens, hopefully it will be fine, if not i can always just call it off. 

I like this boy I work with but I’m so confused and here is the tea:

1) he’s funny and really nice but idk if he likes me or is just… Nice

2) I’m super self conscious because I’m plus size (UK 18) and even though I’m losing weight (lost a stone so far) I still feel like it is completely impossible for anyone to like me. I mean he’s not exactly skinny or anything but still.

3) he’s only working here for the summer before he goes back to uni in September so the chances of anything happening are really slim, unlike me (sorry couldn’t resist that pun!)

4) we don’t even work the same days! He’s been doing overtime lately which is how I’ve got to know him.

5) I’ve never been in a relationship (I’m 19) and idk wtf I’m doing

Helllppp meeeee.

Should I let it go before I get too sucked in, or what??

We gotta talk about something. 

I don’t even know how to word this correctly, but… I hope everyone is prepared for Ian possibly mentioning Trevor to Mickey. And the possibility of Ian mentioning to Mickey that Trevor is trans. And the possibility of Mickey saying some really horribly transphobic things.

The writers have been laying it on thick of how much a piece of shit Mickey is –while also retconning the hell out of his character (and outright lying about him). Some people might disagree with me, and that’s fine. You all know I love Mickey. He’s my kid. He deserves the entire fucking world, and everything good in it –call me a Mickey Stan, that’s fine, whatever. But I’m also very aware of his bad parts as well of his good parts. And I wouldn’t be surprised in the least –wouldn’t even question it, if the writers took the “opportunity” to expose that side of him. A side that, in canon (not in fic… you know how different those worlds can be) it would be 100% believable, in my opinion. Again, if you disagree with me, that’s fine –just be proactive, and prepare yourself.

So… I thought it needed to be brought up, so people can get ready. If it happens. Not saying it will –I obviously don’t know what’s going to happen, but you know how these writers are. Any chance they can take to do damage, any chance they’re given to make someone less fortunate look ignorant and cruel, they will take it. This time though, I hate to say it, but I’d believe it. I love my Mickey, but I would 100% believe it.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: um ok no offense but if star wars is queer baiting us with finn and poe then i'll be really upset bc i feel like they have no chance of being together even though i REALLY want them to be. like even oscar isaac said he played romance in the movie but the only characters he had big relationships with were finn and bb-8 BUT HE OBVIOUSLY ISN'T GOING TO DATE BB-8 SO WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IDK

taompon  asked:

its about our main gays & i have to ask who do you think tops? most people assume Xi because he looks manlier & acts more stoic than JY but i always kinda felt Xi gives in easily to JY & is more sensitive (to JY's love) than people think. art of jian yi carrying Xi kinda reminded me of just how passionate & excited JY is about Xi. i kinda believe both would switch, but i still feel JY is the assertive one who is greedy & cant get enough of Xi while Xi would just be content with his idiot haha

you basically summed up all my thoughts on the matter tbh, i agree with everything you said!!

i feel like a lot of people (myself included at the beginning) just assume that jian yi is the bottom because he is more emotional and doesn’t fit the stereotypical personality traits of seme characters that we’re used to see in yaoi, but we have to keep in mind that 19 days is not the stereotypical yaoi, so it doesn’t have to respect or use the common tropes that we would find in one (and im using the term yaoi here because i feel like a lot of us are influenced by this genre, but i definitely think that’s something we shouldn’t apply to 19 days, since it also comes from a completely different culture)

one of the reasons why i love 19 days so much, it’s because old xian manages to give a lot of depth to the characters despite how short the chapters are, they feel very real to me, and i can see that old xian really cares about telling their story, which is very refreshing, so i try not to let myself fall into common tropes when i analyse them but do my best to understand them and what would they want and like best

when it comes to jian yi and zheng xi, it’s true that zheng xi is the one who is physically stronger and acts more mature, whereas jian yi is more emotional and childish sometimes, but this is not all there is, because like you said jian yi can also be very assertive and dominant while zheng xi can feel more uneasy and bashful, especially when it comes to a certain kind of physical contact

(………sorry for the crappy picspam, i wanted to show some example of what i mean)

of course zheng xi’s feelings about jian yi are not the same as jian yi’s feelings for him yet (at least, in my opinion), so it’s definitely possible that he will become more comfortable about this in the future and make their dynamic change a little, but even in that case i personally can see jian yi being the top and im actually very fond of this headcanon (you can’t tell me that jian yi wouldn’t feel absolutely ecstatic about being inside zheng xi)

so, yeah, i do think they switch a lot, but im very partial to top!jian yi (though i don’t know ho wmany chance it has to happen even if we get an actual sex scene between them) and i definitely think that he is a power bottom when zheng xi is the one to top

cs-aura-fluffer  asked:

Fic prompt- Emma and Killian have a picnic date on the beach but a seagull comes and steals their food. Fluff please :)

With a cheese and ham sandwich in his hand and baby Neal sitting on his lap trying to move the fingers on his fake hand, Captain Hook could not look more delightfully domestic than he does at this exact second. He’s even out of the leathers for a change, though that’s partly out of necessity as summer’s come with a vengeance (more than welcome in Emma’s eyes after the freezing chill that Elsa dropped on the town a few months ago.) 

Emma sits back on the beach towel and watches him relating a picaresque tale of piracy to Henry through her sunglasses. Killian is quite the storyteller, and it’s impossible to resist being drawn in when he gets going. Henry lies on his stomach with his chin in his hands, wide-eyed and completely engrossed, while her little brother -who they’d offered to take along to give her parents a break- gurgles contentedly. This is the kind of day Emma lives for; whenever a Big Bad comes along and threatens them all yet again, this is the kind of day she’s fighting to protect.

She feels so at peace in fact that it takes her a few seconds longer to react than it usually would when a flash of white and grey wings descends on them. “The bloody hell?!” Killian exclaims, curling in on the baby in his arms protectively while Emma shoos at the seagull until it flies off.

Panicking, Emma scans Neal for any injuries but thankfully he isn’t crying and actually seems completely unfazed by the incident which is more than can be said for the grown man holding him. The only casualty seems to be… Kilian’s sandwich.

His hand is empty but his fingers are still open as though he’s holding it. The scene looks like it came straight out of a comedy sketch show, especially when Killian looks down at his hand, devoid of the half-eaten sandwich and looks up at them, disgusted. Henry and Emma fall about laughing, and even Neal shrieks with giggles and claps his little hands in delight.

“What the b…” Emma gives him a sharp look– they’ve discussed cursing around her brother. Neal might be far from talking as yet, but kids are freaking sponges. “…blooming heck was that?!”

“They’re seagulls,” Henry supplies, still laughing.

“Heathens is more like it!” Killian scowls at the gulls flocking over their heads, as though the sheer force of his hatred would bring back his sandwich. “What kind of poorly evolved beast can’t even hunt its own meals and instead has to resort to stealing other peoples’?”

“Aw, poor baby,” Emma says mockingly, pinching his cheek lightly. Killian glares, snatching another sandwich and scoffing it down as though not give the seagulls another chance.
