in any case

onenickel  asked:

do you have any thoughts on how... idk how to put it right, compliant? len seems to be with the legion? i mean there might be some further reasoning in the next ep and then more reasoning in the fact that there are only two episodes left and len's only showing up now but i figured i'd ask

So the thing is, I’ve seen a lot of comments in the tag and from people I follow calling Len OOC for getting along so well with the Legion, but I honestly don’t understand why?

I don’t think he’s being compliant at all? 

What we can conjecture is that they came to him realizing he could help them de-stabilize the team and help steal the spear, and laid their cards out to him, enough anyway. They told him more or less that he goes off with this team and sacrifices himself, that he’s dead within two years. They no doubt offer some form of proof though I have no idea what, other than Eobard’s general time-travelling abilities. Maybe it doesn’t take much more than bringing him to the Vanishing Point and showing him what they have. He’s gotta make sense of this somehow, right? 

And they tell him there’s a solution. They’re all after the Spear of Destiny to secure their own fates, and figure he is similar to them in that regard. He doesn’t want to die, does he? Wouldn’t he like the ultimate power in the universe, the power to change his own fate, to stick it to the team that let him die for them, the ones that got under his skin in the first place and made him soft? He’d scoff at that last bit, sure. But ultimate power… that’s tempting. The perfect score. 

But he doesn’t know how to use it. How could he – he just heard it existed? He barely knows anything about it. He normally likes to be in charge of his jobs and calling the shots, but he understands this group isn’t like that. They’re all equals and he’s on the lowest rung, the new guy operating with the least information. He’s patient as fuck though, and more than willing to bide his time and see how the chips fall.

They take him to WW1 and he’s already been devising a plan. Mick’s on the team. First things first, isolate him. The Legion gave him some insight on this, they must have: Mick’s there but more like an outsider, not as trusted, clearly even they can see that doesn’t fit so well (or else how would Len jump so fast to those conclusions). But it’s worse than he thought. Mick seems confused to see him, and confirms that yes, he really did die. All Mick is trying to do is stay on mission. He doesn’t even seem to care about what he can take from this time period or anything else for that matter.

He’s a white goddamn hat.

And Len’s got all sorts of angry thoughts about that, but we’ll leave those for now and fast forward to the end of the episode. They’ve got the spear, mission accomplished. The universe’s biggest score and it was almost too easy, really. And Mick mutters that he thought it was just going to be them. Len may have given him that impression. Hard to convince him to take it otherwise, really, Len figured. Mick’s a white hat and he’s been fighting Eobard and Damien and Malcolm for months, he wasn’t going to hand over the spear to them. Len doesn’t mind a little lying when it gets the job done.

But as much as he’d love to have it for himself, again: he doesn’t know how to use the damn thing. 

And as ready as Len is to betray his tenuous allies if he needs to, there is no reason to right now. Taking the spear and running is pointless: not only does he have no plan for getting away from a time-travelling speedster with a vengeance, but they’re all currently on the same page. These guys may be assholes but they are helping him save his own skin, and so far no one’s tried to stab each other in the back. He can wait and see though. He won’t be pushed around, he’s not loyal to them in any way. But they have compatible interests at present, and that’s enough.

“There’s enough power to go around” - maybe he doesn’t normally play nice with others, but Len has always known how to work on a crew and how to split a score evenly.

Final note? Len doesn’t know much about these guys. Would know likely nothing about Damien and even less about Eobard. Malcolm is an enigma to him: a rich man turned… assassin? Apparently? Who also levelled a whole section of Starling City? So Len would understand that they’re in a league of their own, so to speak, but wouldn’t necessarily know just how evil these guys are either, and wouldn’t be looking for reasons not to want to work with the only guys offering him a chance to not-die. 

Because of this ask I received, I was inspired to find the clock in Mason Industries at the end of each mission to see how long they were gone. The clock starts the second they leave for the past and stops when they return. It is not visible every time (especially not in later episodes), but I’ll share what I can find or derive.

So, for anyone else curious just how long the team was in the past each episode, here you go.


1.01 - Pilot

15 hours, 8 minutes, 46 seconds

1.02 - The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln

23 hours, 48 minutes, 56 seconds

1.03 - Atomic City

13 hours, 48 minutes, 18 seconds

1.04 - Party at Castle Varlar

21 hours, 29 minutes, 26 seconds

1.05 - The Alamo

N/A
*This timeline is a conundrum.

Historically, the Alamo falls early in the morning on March 6th. Jiya says Flynn jumped to March 2nd. Lucy says the Alamo is not supposed to fall for four more days, so March 2nd. And yet the date that the title card flips over from in the beginning of the episode says, “03041836″: March 4th.

Considering the long shadows coming from the tents in Santa Anna’s camp, Flynn does not first meet with him at midday. It is morning or afternoon. Enough happens during that day (also the team would arrive later than Flynn and did not do so at night) that I’ll assume it’s morning and Flynn interrupts Santa Anna’s breakfast. That night, Flynn kills William Travis. Most of the episode takes place during the second day, March 3rd. I see no evidence of a second night, but for the title card to say March 4th implies that is when the battle takes place. (Even though the displayed date is usually the first day they jump to. However, 1.07 is another exception to this.) The conclusion for this trip is indeterminable. Perhaps the title card date is wrong, confused by the fact that their interference made the Alamo fall prematurely. I will ignore the title card and remark on what I see. Flynn arrived in the morning. There is one night. The Alamo fell in the afternoon of the second day. 

This trip lasted two days but less than 48 hours.

1.06 - The Watergate Tape

N/A
*Given Flynn’s time limit of five hours + any time before/after it until they returned, this trip most likely lasted 8-10 hours.

1.07 - Stranded

*NOTE: This screenshot is taken at the beginning of the episode, three hours after Flynn returned. The team remains in the past another night and day.

This trip lasted four days.

1.08 - Space Race

N/A
*Flynn arrived late at night and left the next afternoon. The team was there for a lesser amount of time.

This trip lasted less than one day.

1.09 - Last Ride of Bonnie & Clyde

N/A
*They arrived during the day, stayed the night, and left early the next morning.

1.10 - The Capture of Benedict Arnold

58 hours, 46 minutes, 38 seconds

*Blurry but the best shot I could get. I could be reading it wrong. I know the adventure itself lasted two days, and, logically, Wyatt and Rufus would then have to travel back to where they left the Lifeboat. 58 hours is a reasonable length of time, though it pertains only to Wyatt and Rufus. Flynn and Lucy would have been there less than 48 hours (perhaps 36 hours). They arrived on the morning of September 25th and left early in the night on September 26th, just after sunset.

1.11 - The World’s Columbian Exposition

N/A
*After the episode first came out, I calculated that Lucy was with Flynn for at least 18 hours. Then she escaped. Lucy and Flynn arrived, presumably, at night (if not before) and left at night. They were there a full day. Wyatt and Rufus were there for a shorter amount of time. We don’t see them until the next day.

This trip lasted one night and day for Flynn and Lucy, around 24 hours (or possibly more). Wyatt and Rufus were there 20 or less hours.

1.12 - The Murder of Jesse James

N/A
*In the original timeline, Jesse James was killed by his partners in the morning. The time travelers were there that entire day. They camped at night. Spent the next day traveling. Made it to Emma’s cabin that night. Left the next day. 

This trip lasted three days and around 48 hours.

1.13 - Karma Chameleon

N/A
*Don’t hold me to this, but I believe Claire’s plane landed at around 1pm. I think the clock on the screen with the flights says 13:17. Last call for bars in Ohio (when Joel’s shift would end) is 2am. Shortly after that time, Joel and Claire went back to her hotel room, and later Wyatt interrupted them. After Joel’s death, Wyatt and Rufus leave. In the present day, it goes from being late at night/early in the morning to nighttime again in the end.

This trip lasted around 14-16 hours.

1.14 - The Lost Generation

N/A
*Charles Lindbergh was supposed to land after 10pm. Flynn must have intercepted him in the late afternoon. The rest of the episode takes place at night without ever seeing morning.

This trip lasted several hours of an indeterminable count. Probably no more than 12-13 hours for the team.

1.15 - Public Enemy No. 1

N/A
*I believe the clock above the hotel’s front door when Flynn first meets Capone says 11:10am. (But he would have been there a few hours already to steal all of the evidence he presented. Maybe since around 9am.) The team arrived four hours after him. When they go to the hotel later with Capone’s brother, the clock says 1:29am. They parked the Lifeboat in a field outside the city so travel needs to be included. 

This trip lasted 14-16 hours.

1.16 - The Red Scare

N/A
*They arrive during the day. The exact time is unclear, but with the Rittenhouse summit being that night, Flynn wouldn’t have risked waiting around for Lucy and Wyatt to show unless he had time to spare. He probably arrived in the morning or midday. The summit and climax occur that night. Don’t know what Flynn, Lucy, Wyatt, and Ethan spend the rest of the night doing, but they don’t drive into the warehouse with the Lifeboat until early the next morning.

This trip lasted two days but less than 24 hours.


There’s no real purpose behind this list besides curiosity. However, if you are interested in setting a fic during any of the episodes, here is the time span you have to do it in. Maybe that will help someone somewhere.

You got so tiny, look at you! How sweet~ What's it like being a Gastly again? (daily-cofagrigus)

spork is still,,,, adjusting to the transformation, hehe. they could sorta pass for a normal haunter when they evolved, but their odd coloring was a lot more apparant when they were a wee bab!! 

Jfc.

Remember a couple of days ago I asked for BotW playthrough recs? I can’t remember who recced it, but I finally settled on one of them and have basically been watching it non-stop since. I’ve finally caught up to their one episode of the playthrough released per day, but I ended up marathoning probably 20 hours of it up to that point. @_@

This is the reason I have been neglecting Tumblr. I have so much stuff in my inbox and drafts I gotta sort through now, oops.

(Also remix challenge which I have had on my mind the entire time but haven’t actually sat down and written anything for yet because of no reason other than personal character flaws. >>;;)

And I am certain that the characters in a novel would nave a more genuine appearance, or, in any case, would be more agreeable.

  • Also me: requires near constant attention and reassurance that my significant other doesn't hate me, gets extremely sad and angry when given any tiny reason to believe that they might not like me and then proceeds to hate them from any time between several hours to several days, is very emotionally dependent on them, is always sad or scared about something and needs to be comforted, gets jealous whenever they talk to anyone that isn't me, and is just generally high maintenance as hell

i made a guide for the main cast’s skin tones. wasnt that hard to make tbh.

It’s a story about hockey and friendship and bros and trying to find yourself during the best 4 years of your life.

She got me praying all hours of the night, say she want my heart, She pulling me to the river, drawing me with her siren's call, Done gave her my heart but now she wants my soul, Well I already sold it to the man in red, "Fell in love with your charm," but its a curse; cos am dead, Girl you're not who you say, bad girl they say you are Innocence isn't where am at, wear your crucifix bae Don't make me out all serious bonnie, slave to this bad religion, Unrequited love, praying at my shrine, cos I don't have a heart Like a dead man walking, I lay at your side, Make sure you're alright in my world, atleast that for you girl,

I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul

If people are bitter over the title of Yuri on Ice being deceiving, then boy do I have news for you about Bleach having nothing to do with a laundry detergent.

I scrolled past this post again, and I can’t stop staring at this gif.

That was JIBcon 2014, when Jensen was doing a panel and he started to seem really pretty frustrated and unhappy with the stuff he’d been given to do. This was his face:

Somebody with the staff noticed and ran and grabbed Misha, sending him out on stage like a human mood booster. He immediately did this:

Jensen’s whole demeanor entirely changed, he looked a bit flustered and started smiling.

So just looking at the above hugging gif makes me emotional because he’s just relaxing his whole body into Misha like he’s so relieved to have him there, like his tension is just melting away and everything is better. 

He certainly seemed plenty happier as they played out the scene from Hitch, didn’t he?

Okay so among many other aspects of Moana, I just really appreciate and love the fact that Moana, a 16-year old girl, is voiced by Auli’i Cravalho, a 16-year old girl. So many “Disney Princess” characters are voiced by women who are much older than the character herself, and Auli’i’s performance in Moana has so much authenticity in it from the mere fact that SHE IS 16 YEARS OLD AND SHE SOUNDS LIKE SHE’S 16 YEARS OLD. I LOVE IT.

Karaii here! My account got terminated ):

Hey guys, this is Karaii.

I’m the artist that drew a bunch of Gravity Falls and Ajin fan comics. Maybe you recognize some of the art.

My account got terminated because someone reported some art I drew for one of my sideblogs.

Tbh, whoever did that? You’re kind of a dick, friend. I wish you’d come talked to me first, or blocked my content if it wasn’t your jam, but whatever. I forgive you. I kind of had a cry about it, because it didn’t just affect me – they erased all of the blogs I was mod for, too (I’m so sorry to my friends that got affected) – but I’m an adult and I take responsibility for my content and thus, if that’s what tumblr decided was Too Much then it’s too much. Okay. I won’t do it again.

I sent an email asking if they can at least restore my main blog (@karaii) but I know realistically nothing will come of it. It’s the new year so I guess it’s time to start reeeally fresh.

I’m kind of heavily demoralized by the whole thing, so like, I might not be super active for a while. I’m half-tempted to post my old art since I’m fond of it, but like, ghosts of its reblogs should be floating about so I might just reblog them back to this one and tag as my art. We’ll see.

In any case, it is what it is. I’m not happy about it, but I’m not the kind of person to dwell needlessly on tragedy.

Let’s keep our chins up and strive to make 2017 a good, successful year :)

Thanks for listening.

Cheers,
Karaii

Okay, legitimate question time about Hogwarts’ Hospital Wing and what actually necessitates a visit to St Mungos.

  • Petrified by a basilisk? Nah. It may take all year, but we’ll just keep them here, sorry muggle parents.
  • Turned into an anthromorphic cat? No worries! Pomfrey will figure it out. Eventually.
  • Nearly killed by Department of Mysteries miscellany and numerous Death Eaters? They’re fiiiine.
  • Possessed by Voldemort for nearly a year? Dumbledore says all you need is a nap, stop whining.
  • Ravaged my an un-turned werewolf? Like St Mungos would know what to do, Mrs W just give Fleur that salve already.
  • Cursed by a necklace? No tha– oh, crap. Yes alright, take her to Mungos.

Damn, Poppy Pomfrey has her hands full.
