Do you think that Diana's backstory and the whole Chariot stealing everyones magic was something they had planed all the way back in the first OVA? also would you have preferred if the tv-series had the same tone as the OVA's or been a continuation of the OVA's?

I doubt so, after all the first OVA was especially a project for beginner animators and 4 years ago.

I think Yoh Yoshinari took advantage of the things that we saw in the first and second OVA afterwards(like the magic show).
The concept of 7 Words don’t seem to have existed back then either cause this “Makmir Mikmir Mektoral”(from memory spelled rofl) was none of the Words and replaced the first Word from the LWA TV universe.

Also, the idea of Diana visiting one of Shiny Chariot’s shows was the idea of one of the animators, to add her simply to the audience. And that had 4 years later a completely different impact to the TV series.

Well- i’m glad that they decided to create a new story line in 2017th LWA, because what exactly should they have continued this way, since each OVA was its own story?


No other show is going to make an impact on TV as much as The Legend of Korra. Like, go on, do your best. But having Korra – the main character, a tomboyish, bisexual, PoC who is mental ill and was physically disabled – end up with Asami – a beautiful, bisexual, saint of an heiress, who can kick ass despite losing both her parents, one of whom was a helping a bunch of terrorists – raised the bar so fucking high for both cartoons, tv shows, and even games when it comes to representation. 

“Produce 101 Season 2” Contestant Park Ji Hoon Revealed To Be Ex-Trainee Of Big 3 Agency

The first episode of Mnet’s “Produce 101 Season 2” aired on April 7 and revealed the written applications of some of the contestants on the show.

One of the written applications was that of Park Ji Hoon, also known as “wink boy” thanks to his famous wink at the contestants’ first performance of “Pick Me.” He is currently ranked in first place.

Eagle-eyed netizens noticed that he had been a trainee at big name agencies SM Entertainment and Fantagio before entering his current agency, Maroo Entertainment. It is unclear why he left his previous agencies and joined his current one.

Meanwhile, “Produce 101 Season 2” is gathering a tremendous amount of attention from viewers, even topping the TV impact factor rankings after just one episode.

You have the chance to become the most noble contradiction in history: the Telmarine who saved Narnia.
—  Dr. Cornelius, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008)
Bonnie: We’ve been treated like cattle.
The Doctor: So what?
Bonnie: We’ve been left to fend for ourselves.
The Doctor: So is everyone.
Bonnie: It’s not fair.
The Doctor: Ooooh it’s not fair. I didn’t realize that it was not fair. Well you know what? My tardis doesn’t work properly and I don’t have my own personal tailor.
Bonnie: The things don’t equate. 
The Doctor: These things have happened Zygella, they are facts. You just want cruelty to beget cruelty. You’re not superior to people who were cruel to you. You’re just a whole bunch of new cruel people. A whole bunch of new cruel people, being cruel to some other people, who’ll end up being cruel to you. The only way anyone can live in peace is if they’re prepared to forgive. Why don’t you break the cycle?
Bonnie: Why should we?
The Doctor: What is it that you actually want?
Bonnie: War.
The Doctor: Ah. And when this war is over, when – when you have the homeland free from humans, what do you think it’s going to be like? Do you know? Have you thought about it? Have you given it any consideration? Because you’re very close to getting what you want. What’s it going to be like? Paint me a picture. Are you going to live in houses? Do you want people to go to work? What’ll be holidays? Oh! Will there be music? Do you think people will be allowed to play violins? Who will make the violins? Well? Oh, You don’t actually know, do you? Because, just like every other tantruming child in history, Bonnie, you don’t actually know what you want. So, let me ask you a question about this brave new world of yours. When you’ve killed all the bad guys, and it’s all perfect and just and fair, when you have finally got it exactly the way you want it, what are you going to do with the people like you? The troublemakers. How are you going to protect your glorious revolution from the next one?
Bonnie: We’ll win.
Doctor: Oh, will you? Well maybe – maybe you will win. But nobody wins for long. The wheel just keepts turning. So, come on. Break the cycle.
Bonnie: Then why are you still talking?
The Doctor: Because I’m trying to get you to see. And I’m almost there.
Bonnie: Do you know what I see, Doctor? A box. A box with everything I need. A 50% chance.
Kate: For us, too.
[The Doctor sighs.]
The Doctor: And we’re off! Fingers on buzzers! Are you feeling lucky? Are you ready to play the game? Who’s going to be quickest? Who’s going to be the luckiest?
Kate: This is not a game!
The Doctor: No, it’s not a game, sweetheart, and I mean that most sincerely.
Bonnie: Why are you doing this?
Kate: Yes, I’d like to know that too. You set this up – why?
The Doctor: Because it’s not a game, Kate. This is a scale model of war. Every war ever fought right there in front of you. Because it’s always the same. When you fire that first shot, no matter how right you feel, you have no idea who’s going to die. You don’t know who’s children are going to scream and burn. How many hearts will be broken! How many lives shattered! How much blood will spill until everybody does what they’re always going to have to do from the very beginning – sit down and talk! Listen to me, listen. I just – I just want you to think. Do you know what thinking is? It’s just a fancy word for changing your mind.
Bonnie: I will not change my mind.
The Doctor: Then you will die stupid. Alternatively, you could step away from that box. You could walk right out of that door, and you could stand your revolution down.
Bonnie: No, I’m not stopping this, Doctor. I started it. I will not stop it. You think they’ll let me go after what I’ve done?
The Doctor: You’re all the same, you screaming kids, you know that? “Look at me, I’m unforgivable.” Well here’s the unforeseeable, I forgive you. After all you’ve done. I forgive you.
Bonnie: You don’t understand. You will never understand.
The Doctor: I don’t understand? Are you kidding? Me? Of course I understand. I mean, do you call this a war, this funny little thing? This is not a war. I fought in a bigger war than you will ever know. I did worse things than you could ever imagine, and when I close my eyes… I hear more screams than anyone could ever be able to count! And do you know what you do with all that pain? Shall I tell you where you put it? You hold it tight… Til it burns your hand. And you say this – no one else will ever have to live like this. No one else will ever have to feel this pain. Not on my watch.
[Kate closes her box.]
The Doctor: Thank you. Thank you.
Kate: I’m sorry.
The Doctor: I know. I know, thank you.
[The Doctor looks back to Bonnie.]
Bonnie: It’s empty, isn’t it? Both boxes – there’s nothing in them. Just buttons.
The Doctor: Of course. But you know how you know that? Because you’ve started to think like me. It’s hell, isn’t it? No one should have to think like that. And no one will. Not on our watch.
[The Doctor and Bonnie stare at one another for a moment.]
The Doctor: Gotcha.
Bonnie: How can you be so sure?
The Doctor: Because you have a disadvantage, Zygella. I know that face.
Kate: Well, this is all very well, but we know the boxes are empty now. We can’t forget that.
The Doctor: No, well, uh… You’ve said that the last 15 times.
[The Doctor uses his sonic sunglasses to erase Kate’s and the zygons memories with the memory erasers that the room already has.]
Bonnie: You didn’t wipe my memory.
The Doctor: No. Just Kate’s. Oh, and your little friends here, of course. When they wake up, they won’t remember what you’ve done. It’ll be our secret.
Bonnie: You’re going to protect me?
Osgood: Well, you’re one of us now, whether you like it or not.
Bonnie: I don’t understand how you could just forgive me.
The Doctor: Because I’ve been where you have. There was another box. I was gonna press another button. I was going to wipe out all of my own kind. Man, woman, and child. I was so sure I was right.
Bonnie: What happened?
The Doctor: Same thing that happened to you. I let Clara Oswald get inside my head.
[The Doctor looks at Clara.]
The Doctor: Trust me… She doesn’t leave.

The Doctor’s Speech in The Zygon Inversion

I meant to post this earlier, but just haven’t gotten around to it till now… but this was seriously one of the most impactful speeches ever on tv. This is why this show is my absolute favorite show. I wanted to share his full speech. It was incredible. Please reblog if you agree!!

I wonder how much lifelong exposure to tv has impacted the way that writers write. Like do writers write in anticipation of their work being framed as a scene on tv. I know at my worst I write in this really disjointed hard to follow way, bc I’m not including framing information that in my head is obvious from the visual scene, but obviously there… is no visual scene

5 Warning Signs Your Friendships Are Unhealthy

The people with whom you surround yourself have a strong influence on the life that you live. They impact the TV programs you watch, the places where you spend time, the books you read, or if you’re even reading at all. Collectively, those choices have a huge sway on the direction of your life.

But all too often, we don’t find time to take a good, hard look at the people around us and make sure they’re supporting us, and not holding us back.

By spending time with the right people, you can achieve those goals that really matter to you. So take a look at the warning signs below, and find out if your friends are roadblocks on your path to success.

Here are 5 warning signs to look for:

1. They take, but never give.

You shouldn’t be keeping score in your friendships, but if the only time your friends come around is when they have their hands out asking for favors, it may be a sign that they’re more “opportunist” than friend. Friendships should be a balance of give and take. If you ask for the occasional favor and your friend always has an excuse, you may want to ask yourself whether that person is really a friend.

2. They attack your self-confidence.

This is a big one. So often, people don’t believe in their own abilities, so when they see someone else trying to shoot for the stars, they immediately tear them down. It sounds ridiculous but it happens all the time. A friend like that is going to be nothing but a detriment to you. A huge part of finding success is about being confident in yourself and your abilities. You have to be able to look in the mirror and say, “I can do this.” If the people closest to you are the ones giving you hardest time when you try to grow, life will be difficult, and success will be elusive.

3. None of them are ahead of you.

If you’re always at the head of your class, then you’re in the wrong class. You want to be friends with people who’ve been around the proverbial block. It helps to know people who are a little more experienced. You can’t always lead yourself; sometimes you need to be a follower so you can learn something worthwhile.

If you’re always the brightest star in your tight-knit circle, your personal growth is slow down. Success demands that you have people who are challenging you in every way. Success demands that you constantly push the envelope and try new things. You run into problems when everyone around you is busy learning from you, and never teaching you. When you can consistently tap into brilliant minds, you can grow two, three, or even five times faster than you ever could have on your own.

4. They stay in their comfort zone.

We all know it. Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. It couldn’t be truer. Almost every time I’ve made something significant happen in my life, I did so by stepping out of my comfort zone.

If everyone around you is content with living life under the radar and inside the box, chances are, you will be too. This could be the biggest problem of all because it’s not something your friends may be doing on purpose.

They’re not consciously trying to pull you back into your comfort zone. They’re just so used to how things are right now, that they have an instinctual (and unconscious) resistance to anything new and uncomfortable, even if it may lead to success.

So make it a point to find people who are not only pushing their own boundaries, but also encouraging you to do the same. It’s easier to live on the edge when someone else is ready to jump with you.

5. They want to stay the same, forever.

Everyone around you doesn’t have to be bona fide superstar, but it becomes a problem when the majority of people you know aren’t focused on intentional growth. They have no plans to improve their knowledge or skill. They have no desire to find success.

Take a look at someone who is close to you and think back to where they were, and what they were doing five years ago. Then think about where they are and what they’re doing today. If five years ago looks the same as today, something is very, very wrong and you need to run in the opposite direction.

A love letter to Bones

People have the right to despise/hate Bones for whatever reason. But no matter what you say, it’s undeniable it had a huge impact on modern television and Temperance Brennan will always be one of the most influential leading ladies along with Dana Scully, Lorelai Gilmore, Kate Beckett and many others. Bones was able to be so much more than a procedural dramedy. The way they have dealt with social issues and shed light upon twisted matters will always be relevant. I am so proud to call myself a fan of this flawed but yet extraordinary educational program. Bones was one of the first tv products to have women being successful in the medical field, women being richer than men and women not taking men’s shit. Women reading feminist/ soft porn novels and not being ashamed. Bones was one of the first products to have a social inept woman cover a position of power in one of the most important scientific labs of the US (well, its fictional version.). And then a woman of color being above her. Bones was one of the first products that has never ever judged one of its female characters based on their races only. Bones has dealt with human trafficking, homeless veterans, abused handicapped children, dog fights, animal abuse, medical marjuana, feminism and so much more. Bones has treated religions with respect, it was one of the first programs to say out loud that Muslims are not the bad guys. They have had the gut to say that the 9/11 attacks are the outcome of pure ignorance, not religion. Bones has had a bisexual character. Bones has had a woman say that women have the right to sleep with a man without being forced in a romantic relationship. Temperance Brennan has dated 2 guys at once and she has not been judged for this. Bones has had a character with depression who was still able to do his job properly and was not judged by his collegues. Bones has had a male character say that rape is never the victim’s fault. Bones has had main characters who didn’t want children and still haven’t  had any and other characters who have changed their minds because it’s possible. Bones has had characters that got married and male characters that never ever touched their female partners whenever they didn’t want to. They have had men who are gentlemen and admire women for their brains and not their bodies. Bones’ fights between men and women were always mature and never abusing. Not even once Seeley Booth or Jack Hodgins have slapped Temperance Brennan and Angela Montenegro, even in their darkest moments. Bones was created by a man and its writer’s room was made of a good 80% of male writers. In a world where women and minorities are mistreated everyday in every way possible all of this matters. Thank you, Bones.
