Hop & 14?

“It can remember faces, you know.”

Jim Hopper gave a violent start that nearly sent him and his patio chair tipping backwards. His cigarette burned the tip of his forefinger as he tried and failed to keep it from falling to the ground, the burn made him curse loudly before looking up at the person standing behind him on the deck.

“Don’t sneak up on me like that, kid! What are you talking about?”

Eleven pointed out into the distance, to a large black crow that was hopping about the edge of the lake. A shiver ran down Jim’s spine. He had always hated birds, especially crows. 

“Did it see you?” the girl asked in her hypnotic but flat tone. Her large brown eyes were wide and haunted as they stared out at the bird, who had paused to tilt its head in their direction. 

“Jesus, I don’t know. You need to get to sleep, you start school in the morning and your aunt is coming by to take you to see your mom after.”

Eleven shrugged. “I wish my mom was like that bird.”

Jim’s heartstrings were sufficiently tugged at the soft, mournful hope. “The doctor said she’s been improving. Don’t lose hope.”

“I guess. Good night, Hop.” With that, Eleven gave a shy little wave and started to turn away.

“Can they really remember faces?” 

Eleven paused and turned back. “Joyce said.”

Jim nodded. “Then it must be true. I better not do anything to make this one mad.”

“Joyce said they can take revenge.”

Jim scoffed. “Remind me to tell Joyce to stop filling your head with spooky crap. It’s been nothing but horror central since I hooked up that VCR for her and the boys.”

“Joyce says she likes to watch horror because it helps her put things into per-perspective.”

When the girl left Jim alone on the patio, he looked back to the water, to the large black bird that was still taking its time exploring the shore. Twilight was starting to set in, and the air lowered several degrees in temperature.

“Stupid bird,” he muttered. The crow jerked its head up and made direct eye contact with Jim. The man felt his insides twist and took a deep shuddering breath before running back into the trailer, away from the cold black eyes of revenge.

Salaam I really need your help please, what can help with anxiety? I pray 5 times a day alhamdulilah but it's still not helping.

Wa Alaykum as-Salaam

If your your condition is severe and come frequently and if you are not already going, please go see a mental health professional and get help. Follow the instructions and medication they give you. There is nothing wrong with that

Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Make use of medical treatment, for Allah has not made a disease without appointing a remedy for it, with the exception of one disease, namely old age.” (Abu Dawud)

Here is a dua for anxiety and sorrow:

The Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

“If a person who is afflicted by anxiety or sorrow says:

‘Allaahumma inni ‘abduka wa ibnu ‘abdika wa ibn ammatika naasiyati bi yadika maadin fiyya hukmuka ‘adlun fiyya qadaa’uka as’aluka bi kulli ismin huwa laka sammayta bihi nafsaka aw ‘allamtahu ahadan min khalqika aw anzaltahu fi kitaabika aw asta’tharta bihi fi ‘ilm il-ghaybi ‘indaka an taj’al al-Qur’aana rabee’a qalbi wa noora sadri wa jalaa’a huzni wa dhahaaba hammi’

[O Allah, I am Your slave, son of Your slave, son of Your female slave, my forelock is in Your hand, Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask You by every name belonging to You with which You have named Yourself, or You have taught to any of Your creation, or You have revealed in Your Book, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the Unseen with You, that You make the Qur’aan the life of my heart and the light of my breast, and a departure for my sorrow and a release for my anxiety], then Allah will take away his anxiety and sorrow, and will replace it with joy.“ (Imam Hanbal)

“Someone was accused of raping another mun. They had a callout post made about them. I blocked the accused mun and everyone else who reblogged it because I don’t do drama, period.

Then I ended up seeing another post on my dash that went something like “Unfollow me if you’re friends/follow (accused mun)”. I went through the post and blocked every single person who had reblogged it. Over 500 people.

It’s such a shit-disturbing, confrontational post and it basically screams “Yeah, bitch, you wanna go?” to all of their followers, even though most of these followers probably never even heard of that mun before, so they were essentially being dragged into that drama, too, even though it would’ve been better and less stressful if they simply were told politely as a warning, or not at all.

I also blocked anyone who was directly sending the accused mun messages telling them to “kill yourself”. There were at least 50 people doing that. Like, HOLY CRAP! The person that’s being accused of things, shitty as their actions were, already had a callout post made about them and they will be dealt with if Tumblr deems them dangerous.

Stop dragging the drama on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and getting all your poor followers involved. Just block them, for crying out loud. There are so many drama whores on this fucking website nowadays.“

Oha-yuusaku ٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶

The other day, practice started again, and I thought to myself, the performances just ended!!! So fast!!!! In the blink of an eye, Lunatic Party came and went.

This time, it was a story absolutely filled with laughter and emotion! Please enjoy it on the blu-ray~!!

It was my turn to be a main character of the story, and this time it made me really happy I was given the chance to portray a cute, but also grown up, Minaduki Rui! I also really liked the fantasy dream-land setting!

All of the animals had very individual personalities, and I want to see them on stage again ✨

I’m filled with gratitude for everyone who supports Tsukista, Fujiwara-san’s original work, the staff, and the entire cast!

Right after the last performance of Lunatic Party, the practices for Shanghai, our first overseas show, start and soon after will be the practices for the 5th stage! I’ll do my bestttt!!

Another thing that I think hold so much meaning is the necklace he have on the album art (I saw him wear it a few times during the Dunkirk prom) but I think the fact he made sure it's very visible and it not just his bare back mean something to him I believe. He said in RS that who ever the album for he hope they know it's only for them etc and I feel the necklace hold a relation to that person.

His lotus flower necklace, yeah.  Here is a post about the suggested meaning.

And here is a gif where you can see him wearing it.  Also just this gif in general because he’s hot mmmmk.

anonymous asked:

herthere99 on deviantart has a reaper sans picture from that x reader thing you drew and I dont know if that's you or not, but i think they stole it.

i left a comment on the art. i didn’t draw it, but the artist who made it drew it well over a year and a half ago before disappearing, so it’s likely that this person is NOT the artist. plus there was no link to the fanfic and none of her other comics were posted and the art style was suspiciously not like her other pieces so. yeah. we’ll see what happens.

thank you for letting me know!

the beauty of teru’s character comes from the fact that he thinks he made a 180 flip in personality and morals, but his actions say clearly otherwise. the true character growth comes from seeing those battles against his past self and the hypocrisy of his actions slowly dwindle into a kid who actually aims to do good and help others. he just wants to be better and that road to being good isn’t necessarily paved. he’s still a 14 year old trying to figure shit out, but that doesn’t excuse him from his past actions.

This is for mod sky, I saw the post you made about the broken mirror! It's fantastic, I had a similar idea that I was hoping to use in a future chapter for something that I'm writing for WKM, but I wanted your permission because you did it first. Would it be alright for me to write up mine?

I’m actually not the person who wrote it, it was a submission but I can’t remember the name of the the person who submitted it so if they see this, and say something, you should message them :)

15. favourite movie?

my favourite movie of all time is the original disney cinderella (1950) and i’ll fight anyone who hates on it. like, i get it. it’s classic, and not everyone’s taste, but just because cinderella doesn’t hold a damn sword doesn’t mean that she isn’t a strong character, and reminder that walt said that cinderella was his favourite and that he was inspired by her AND if cinderella wasn’t made, disney would have been bankrupt and likely shut down because they were running so low on money. so. if you don’t like cinderella, i don’t want to hear it. that movie has a lot of personal meaning to me and i hate seeing people sh.t on it.

16. i’ll love you if…

i feel like i kind of answered this with my turn-ons ask but just understanding and willing to talk and explain things is!! nice!!

anonymous asked:

Another line from H that I find is filled with so much meaning and absolutely heartbreaking is this " Open up your eyes, shut your mouth and see That I'm still the only one who's been in love with me" I feel like their is so much one sided love or the other person not being as in love as him type things that maybe happened to H . Also when he was asked on time mag how many times he think he been in love he said "I don't know. I don't know how you define it, so it's tough [to answer], right?"

I personally think he doesn’t let people love him.  He just seems very closed off, he doesn’t want to let anyone in.  I think he realizes that, and blames himself for it, like “why am i like this?”  It’s easier to hear in MMITH and FTDT.  But in Only Angel he’s playing it off in a different way, like it’s no big deal, and there’s nothing he can do about it, hey heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

Okay, everybody, I don’t talk much on here but this is important and I can’t find any other posts about it here.

See the picture?

(for those who can’t see, the picture shows the app I’m action. It shows a phone camera pointed at two red cans of food. Text above depicts a sighted person explaining the right can is a can of tamatoes.)

In short, if you’re blind and have every had trouble finding your blue shirt, the app was made for you.

If your sighted and want to help, the app is for you too.

Anyone out there bashing the idea of Keith being autistic in canon esp when autistic people see themselves in him and he stims in the vlog like…why does the idea of Keith being autistic bother you so much you feel the need to type up a post about how it isn’t really canon?


Just because Keith doesn’t walk around telling everyone he’s autistic doesn’t mean he isn’t. You can watch the show and see some traits that commonly come with being autistic.


Actually I’ll outline them right now why not


1. Attention to detail and organization skills


  • His “conspiracy board” is really just an organized way of laying the information he was gathering out so he could see it all together. Might be a visual learner.


  • Recognized that the lines on Hunk’s chart matched the nearby mountains exactly


  • Didn’t understand what Lance was trying to tell him with his gestures in Return to the Balmera but looked around and figured out what Lance was thinking by looking at the layout of the cave.

__________


2. Social cues


  • Not understanding the team cheer, and going back and analyzing it trying to figure it out but it still not clicking. Him being frustrated over this is very relatable.


  • The whole Lance advice scene, Keith really has trouble picking up on Lance’s cues. Or just doesn’t know what to do with them. In the end Keith’s face screamed nailed it and lance leaves like ): and it’s hilarious but I’ll save that for another post


  • While he’s awkward with people, he views himself as way worse at it than he actually is. It’s hard to tell how good you’re doing when you have a hard time picking up on it in the first place. Sometimes it feels like you’re stumbling around in the dark.

_________

3. Thinking literally


  • Thinking in pretty literal terms. When they are trying to form Voltron in Some Assembly Required Keith suggests they “literally form voltron” by stacking the lions on top of eachother.

________


I could pull out more but I think you get my point by now. All of this isn’t a miraculous coincidence.


Even if a character doesn’t show “signs” of autism, who are you to tell autistic people they can’t have an autistic hero?


When do we ever get a badass autistic hero? Heroes that aren’t looked down on for it or made autism the sole aspect of their “personality” or character arcs?? Especially in a show for kids??? I’ve never seen a character I saw myself in as much as I see myself in Keith. Him being autistic really isn’t a long shot, you guys claim to love rep.. so where’s the love?


To anyone out there trying to “disprove” that Keith is autistic: I urge you to really reflect on why you’re trying to disprove it in the first place.

Like you mean it 😘

Thank you, @cuppa-tea-eh for that prompt! :) It was so much fun! (and whenever ‘it was fun’ it turns into… well, 3k this time. Whoops!) I also posted it on AO3 if you prefer to read it there… :)


Cho Chang. Cho Chang? Really? Cho. Chang!!

“Draco, are you alright?” Pansy was waving a hand in front of his face, scrutinising him intently. She looked worried.

“Cho Chang,” Draco muttered for the umpteenth time. Pansy sighed, letting her hand drop to her side and leaning away again.

“Yes, Draco, Cho Chang. But she said no. She’s already going with someone else.”

Draco couldn’t help but sneer. Thank Merlin Chang was already going out with Diggory! But Potter seemed to fancy her nonetheless. Draco had caught him staring at the Ravenclaw in the Great Hall several times. It made him want to dump his porridge on Potter’s head.

When he saw Potter the next day, he noticed how tense his shoulders looked, how he was walking with his head bowed. Draco would have liked nothing more than to go over there and end Potter’s misery. There were only a few minor problems. Draco had a reputation to uphold. He couldn’t just walk over there and ask him to the Yule Ball. Besides, Potter didn’t even like him.

The more Draco thought about the impossibility of ever being with the stupid Gryffindor, the angrier he got. As he watched Potter cross the courtyard, he acted on impulse. He scooped up a handful of snow and threw it with as much force as he could. It hit Potter right in the back of his head.

“Ow!” He whirled around and narrowed his eyes when he saw Draco sneering at him.

“Potter!” Draco didn’t even have to force his voice to sound gleeful, it was an automatism. “Could you be any more pathetic?” He approached Potter with a smart pace, flashing his ‘Potter stinks’ badge before he came to a halt in front of him. “How does it feel, Potter, to realise you’re not everybody’s darling?” He cackled scornfully, jutting his chin forward. “The Boy Who Lived… can’t even find a date for the Yule Ball.”

Potter glowered at him and Draco felt almost embarrassed about how much he was enjoying it.

“Oh, because everybody is begging you to go with them?” Potter said in a mocking tone. Draco straightened himself, attempting to look as superior as possible.

“Unlike you, I get to pick and choose amongst my devoted admirers.”

Draco scowled when Potter snorted.

“Right. The one devoted admirer being Pansy Parkinson. And you call me pathetic.”

Draco struggled to keep his composure. But he wouldn’t let Potter win.

“Should I build you a snowwoman, so you won’t end up alone after all? At least she’d have as much charisma as you.”

“Don’t bother, Malfoy,” Potter said gruffly. “Worry about yourself. I bet you can’t find someone other than Pansy who’d want to go with you.”

Draco felt his cheeks burn up. He didn’t want to go with Pansy but had already made his peace with it, seeing as the person he really wanted to go with wasn’t an option.

“I already told you, I have lots of choices,” Draco fumed. It was an outright lie and he suspected Potter knew it. The Gryffindor crossed his arms in front of his chest and gave Draco a speculative glance.

“Alright, let’s make a bet then.”

Draco pressed his lips together to keep himself from gaping. He squared his shoulders and forced himself to smirk.

“Sure. But if- I mean when I turn up with my date, who won’t be Pansy, you’ll kneel in front of me and kiss my hand.” Draco chuckled inwardly.

“What? I won’t be kneeling-”

“Scared you’ll lose, Potter?” Draco said tauntingly. Potter gritted his teeth.

“Fine! Since you seem to be so sure of yourself, I’ll make it easy for you. If I win, you’ll kiss your date in front of everyone! Like you mean it.”

Draco bit his lip. Potter wasn’t playing fair. He knew Pansy had a thing for Draco and she would kill him if he went to the ball with somebody else and kissed them right in front of her. But he couldn’t back down now.

“You’ve got yourself a bet, Potter,” he growled and stalked off to the Slytherin common room. What had he gotten himself into? This was bound to end badly. He knew it from the second he had agreed to this stupid bet and was proven right again when he talked to Pansy.

“What do you mean, you can’t go to the ball with me?” she screeched. Draco sighed.

“I made a bet with Potter,” he said, plopping down in an armchair.

“And that bet excludes me as your date?” She was probably going to start throwing things any second now.

“It does,” Draco replied. “Just ask Blaise or something.” It was obviously the wrong thing to say. Pansy’s face was red and blotchy, her nostrils were flared and her eyes look murderous.

“I will kill Potter for this,” she yelled and stormed off into her dorm. Draco let his head fall back and tried not to think about how Pansy would react if he actually had to kiss someone in front of her. Like you mean it. Potter’s words echoed in his head. That would be a tough sell. The only person he could imagine kissing in earnest was the one he’d had to beat in this stupid bet.


Draco looked around the Great Hall and wrinkled his nose. Finding a date to the Yule Ball had turned out harder than he had anticipated. Every single person he had asked was already taken, or at least they said they were, and time was running out fast. The stupid ball was tomorrow. His only consolation was that Potter didn’t seem to have had much luck either.

He didn’t know why he did it, what idiocy drove him to provoke Potter further, but when Potions class was over, he strode over to the Gryffindor and casually leaned his hip against his desk.

“Time’s almost up, Potter. We can do a test run if you like, to familiarise your knees to being bent.” Out of the corner of his eye, he saw Granger and Weasley blinking at him.

“I don’t think that will be necessary,” Potter said, standing up. “You on the other hand should probably take better care of these.” Without warning, Potter’s thumb was brushing Draco’s lower lip. “They look a bit chapped. Wouldn’t want your date to cut themselves on your lip.”

Draco could only watch Potter and his friends, who were still gaping at Draco, leave the classroom while he stood there, dumbfounded and rooted to the spot. His heart was about to jump out his chest and his legs felt like he had been hit with the Jelly-Legs-Jinx.

He was still slightly swaying when he found Blaise in the library.

“Got a date yet?” he asked, putting down his quill. Draco groaned.

“No. And Potter is driving me insane!”

“Honestly, you should just ask him to be your date and be done with it,” Blaise suggested.

“You’re very helpful,” Draco barked.

“Seriously, Draco, I swear to Salazar, if you don’t do anything about it and I have to endure you talking about him every waking minute until we finish school, I will throw myself into the Great Lake.”

“You know very well I can’t do anything about it,” Draco huffed. “And I do not talk about him that much.”

Blaise gave him an exasperated look and sighed.

“Why do you even like him?”

Draco frowned.

“How should I know? I just… do.”

Shaking his head, Blaise took his quill and stuffed it into his bag.

GLOOMVERSE THEORY: Wallis DOES NOT want Harold living on the streets!

I recently got this ask on my Wallis askblog ( @askwallisgloom ) and I decided that since this is something I feel… Pretty passionately about, I’d write up my thoughts on it!! As always, this is just MY theory, it may or may not be canon, only CQ can say that! So, here we go-


Wallis does not want Harold living on the streets.

Despite their differences and arguments, Wallis and Harold do love each other. Seeing his little brother out on the streets would probably hurt Wallis a lot.

Personally, I believe that Wallis HAS tried to get Harold to live with him before, but Harold… Really, really does not like accepting help. Probably because he thinks he’s a burden or something. This is shown here:

(Pg.118)

Where Harold is visibly uncomfortable at Assy offering to buy him stuff. 

So Harold has PROBABLY declined offers for help- ESPECIALLY from Wallis, someone he might feel a lot of guilt around- before.

As a more… Obvious pointer, though, please follow me through this look into the finer details~!!


(Pg.49)

We can see here that Harold stole $400. Enough money, in Wallis’ humble opinion, to need to be paid back- And how he does that is, of course, by forcing Gloom to work for him.

Now is a fantastic time to point out that Wallis has an unlimited supply of workers, it’s not like he NEEDS the extra help. He’s also a brilliant actor.

Moving on, we have this:

(Pg.98)

Assistant’s weekly paycheck is $600- $200 whole dollars more than what Harold stole. And in Wallis’ own words- “Whatevs. It’s not even that much.”

So, we can deduce two things from this.
1. If Wallis doesn’t think $600 is much, he certainly wouldn’t think $400 is a lot.
2. Harold would have completely paid off his debt by now, and yet, Wallis hasn’t made any indication that he wants Harold gone.


Those are the basics, but for a deeper look, I’d like to point you in the direction of this interaction:

(Pg.112)

Wallis hasn’t been working Harold very hard at all. In fact, the worst he’s done, is force Harold to be more HEALTHY. If he was truly upset about his money being stolen purely for the fact his money was gone, wouldn’t you think Wallis would be working him WAY harder??

If we take into consideration that for the most part, Harold MAY have some form of depressive disorder- Or at the very least, is stuck in a rut in his life- Wallis forcing him to be active and do something is probably the best thing he could do. Keep in mind that Wallis has 3 definite layers to his personality:

1. Flashy angry show persona, the main one we see throughout the comic.
2.
Less flashy, normal, “I think I’m pretty great” persona.
3.
The ‘real’ him, who doesn’t think he’s very good at all, and probably has a few self esteem issues.

I think it’s… Fairly safe to assume that anything Wallis does shouldn’t be taken at face value, since he’s buried his real feelings so deep down. This in mind, it’s very plausible that Wallis’ true intentions to HELP his brother are cleverly hidden by a guise of “Wanting to be repaid”- Something that fits his top, and foremost, persona.


Moving on from this, we have this exchange:

(Pg.96)

This is proof that Harold’s condition and situation has been on Wallis’ mind for longer than he lets on. Wallis always has trouble articulating how he feels, so for this interaction to even HAPPEN is a show of how much this means to him- Even if he does run away from the conversation before it can be continued.

Wallis was mad that Harold stole his money, yes- But he wasn’t mad that he was down $400.

He was upset that Harold didn’t think he could just ASK for help.

Honestly, I believe that Wallis’ anger towards Harold was just misdirected anger at HIMSELF- After all, who was it that separated himself from his brother? Who was it that made Harold’s limbs disappear? Who was it that saw, with his own innocent eyes, his brother scream for him to get away?


(Pg.93)

Here we can see that Wallis notices that Harold is upset by this on a personal level, and is probably… Projecting a bit onto Assistant. He immediately moves forward to try and remedy the situation, and ‘comfort’ his brother to the best of his ability.

…On a more speculative note, you could see this as Wallis indirectly promising Harold that he’d help him, too.


In conclusion-

Harold and Wallis love each other. They have their disagreements, and they have things that they don’t like about each other, but when it comes down to it they only want the best for the other. Neither of them is a “bad guy”- They’re just two kids that happen to be a victim of circumstance.

And Wallis absolutely would not want his brother living on the streets.

So Today I Watched…. Batman & Bill // A Documentary by HULU (2017)

Bill Finger. The name will surely ring a bell for most Batman fans, but the casual person out there doesn’t know who he is. In this world where everything is up for grabs, and unfairness is all around. We get to bury our minds deep in the stories of these fictional characters without knowing that some of them have a dark secret behind them too. Such is the case of Batman and the story of how he came to be.

Batman was designed as a work for hire by Bob Kane in 1939 over a weekend. After getting a grasp of how much money Sieger and Shuster were making out of working on Superman weekly, he wanted into that kind of cash. The couple of Jewish kids of Jersey were making $800 a week in that time and that was a lot of money back then. The problem was that Bob Kane wasn’t as creative as the Superman guys. So he called in an up-and-comer writer who really wanted a crack in the comics business. A man named Bill Finger. Once they sat down to work, the crude concept of Bob evolved into the more familiar visage of the character you know and love.

Bob was quick to go to DC and claim solo ownership of the character. Seeing the willingness of Bill to work with him, he let him tag along as his personal work-for-hire paid out of his pocket. They went to develop Batman for some good 20 years until Bob retired and Bill was fired. As time passed Bob increasingly made his name more related to the character. He had done so since day one: he signed a masterful contract that has never been disclosed to the public granting him sole lifetime credit to the character. And of course part ownership and royalties over everything with Batman’s name on it. Bill faded into obscurity. Struggling to make ends meet he died alone in a tiny department in New york in 1973.

So far you may be asking what the big deal about this is. Bill was a work for hire and he had that clear to a T on his side. But looking your so-called partner grow rich out of your creation, is bound to cause some friction and scars over time. Bill was such a gentleman that he never fought for his rights. he never had the resources to do so either. Given his role in the birth of Batman he was entitled for more. You see, Bill didn’t just create the look of Batman and wrote stories about him for 20 years. Bill also crated the imaginary and names for The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler, Robin, Alfred, The Batcave, The Batmobile, Commissioner Gordon and even Gotham City. Imagine for a minute that Stan Lee went to every convention and interview telling everyone that he’s the sole creator of Marvel Comics. And didn’t acknowledge Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. That’s the hand Bill was dealt by Bob Kane. That’s what he had to live with for the rest of his days.

Marc Tyler took it upon himself to make things right. Batman and Bill is a documentary about his journey looking to right one of the biggest creative wrongs made in the creative side of the comic business. Marc Tyler not only manages to find out the truth behind what happened to Bill Finger after his time working at DC. He manages to track down the heirs to Bill and through patience and persistence he achieves what he set out to do. Bill Finger’s story is not a pretty one. It’s filled with sadness and abandonment. It’s a tale about justice being made, not about money being earned. The final fate of the players of this tale will leave you with a sense of closure for Bill. But It will have you wondering why this didn’t happen any sooner.

Bill Finger’s first ever Batman comic credit was in Batman#46 (vol.2) cover dated January of 2016. He was also credited in the film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and he will remain Batman co-creator until the end of times.
