anonymous asked:

Blue Diamond reminds me a bit of Queen Victoria--who presided over a vast empire, and who plunged into decades of ostentatious (and absolutely sincere) mourning following the death of her husband Prince Albert.

You know what else I find striking about BD’s behaviour? 

It’s odd to me that her grief and mourning is so clear to us because we got to see her in her private moments with Pink and Yellow Diamond. The thing is, gems around her like Holly Blue Agate don’t even consider what she does an act of mourning. She honestly thinks BD likes visiting the Zoo for kicks and because she so generously wants to preserve Pink’s memory out of duty.

And that sort of grieving is the most ostentatious because we’re led to believe in That Will Be All, that Blue hasn’t been doing her job. That Yellow finds herself picking up the slack more and more. Blue looks like she’s functioning but she isn’t. And because no one knows she’s not really working at what she’s supposed to, no one is making up for the gap in her duties. 

A very volatile time for Homeworld indeed.

“And that’s why I’m here, isn’t it? Did you make me just so you wouldn’t have to deal with all your mistakes?!”

Holy fuck.

This line just bowled me the fuck over.

I… I had never even considered this line of thinking. And hearing it put so bluntly struck me to my core. Holy shit. What an immensely powerful line. What an immensely tragic mindset for Steven to have.

Waiting

(my first Sherlock ficlet. Inspired by this set of gifs)

In that precise moment, when nobody was expecting something would happen, their paths crossed and everything changed. One look, some sentences and again, one more time, the story had begun, as it was always supposed to be. Two men, sitting across in a living room, however, for their joy and people’s surprise it wasn’t 1895 anymore. 

It’s true Mr. Holmes still was the world’s only consulting detective, and Mr. Watson had just gotten home from Afghanistan. He’s indeed an army doctor who didn’t fit the civilian-state. And Holmes now was considered a junkie, himself said he solved crimes as an alternative to get high. Although these things had stayed the same, even the address, 221B, Baker Street, there was something more touchable in their relationship.

They could look inside each other’s eyes for the time they wished, and feeling the way they’d always felt wasn’t a crime anymore. So, in the moment Holmes and Watson met again, they knew it’s different, but at the same time, how would they know their story was nothing but being repeated? How?

Had Holmes and Watson known their future-selves would have that chance and simply stay quite, let the years pass without freely loving each other, the pair would had been extremely disappointed, but comprehension would still dominate Holmes if he saw Sherlock in John’s wedding, one he fortunately didn’t attend in his time. Oh, and whether Watson saw John grieving Sherlock’s suicide, he’d understand the things John Watson wanted to say. but never did.

The fact is that now they weren’t Holmes and Watson, but Sherlock and John, closer than ever, but there were always villains trying to separate them, Moriarty, who wanted Holmes for himself, and sweet Mary Morstan, his agent. Holmes and Watson would observe everything happening, and the tears would fall down their cheeks while watching that tragic moment in the airplane.

John, there’s something I should say, I’ve meant to say always and I never have. Since it’s unlikely we’ll ever meet again, I might as well say it now.

When they heard that, an audible sigh left their mouth. It’s never too late to say these words, but now it’s. Because saying those three damn words when you’re flying to your death is so tragic we could make a movie just from this. But they know Sherlock knows this is going to break John again, you can’t just let it out and go, because then it’s too late for us, you, and the words just show the fools you’re when you waited until the very last moment to share. 

Sherlock’s actually a girl’s name.”. 

A chuckle is heard, and it’s visible that’s what the taller man wanted to hear from John, his ideal man, in the last moment they would be together. Sherlock Watson could word, and deep inside himself, John wants to believe, but he can’t, the real love of his life is going to die in six months, his pregnant murderer wife is waiting right there. He remembers quite well how Lestrade found him one month after Sherlock’s suicide.

He wouldn’t want you to do this, John.

And Greg takes his gun, ‘cause he has conscious of what his friend’s flatmate considers doing. Therefore, John Watson knows he is not able to get through this one more time whether Sherlock says it. It’s going to be too much, and his baby daughter won’t be enough motivation to live. Staying alive is going to be his final problem.

It was always in the tip of their tongue, and their Victorian selves savvy them so well. They hold hands tightly, suffering for the chance Sherlock and John missed. Why did it have to be so dramatic? Why couldn’t they kiss that night, after their first case?

It is not 1895. According with the calendar, 2016. One hundred and twenty one years and yet they are still locked in time. Sherlock overdoses in the airplane, Holmes and Watson just look inside his crazy hallucination, finally confronting his feelings and the brain without sentiment, the cold machine inside him, and they pray for the moment Sherlock is going to wake up and say those words but they learned to be hopeless. 

One day, Holmes is woken up by a smiley Watson, and then you think, “Oh, they finally confessed their feelings, but what happened?”, but John has different news.

Charlotte Holme and her best friend since childhood, Johanne Waters have moved into the empty 331B, Baker Street. Holmes and Watson move their eyes from Sherlock and John, that are always dancing in circles, although don’t forget them, to those two girls, that resemble them so much it can’t be a coincidence. How is that possible, if there are living versions of Holmes and Watson, there isn’t a logical explanation, but it is what it is, and for Charlotte and Johanne, there is no waiting, because as soon as they are away from their parent’s excruciating looks, the only answer for this is love.

Watson and Holmes finally get to smile, wish with fulfillment, because this has finally happened, and it isn’t one thousand, eighty hundreds and ninety five anymore.


(Few tags under the cut)


So, here I am. I want this to be a gift for everyone out here that was/is part of tjlc community. I’m tagging some people I’d like to read this short whisper, let me know if you don’t want to be tagged.

@thelostsmiles , @violets-of-resistance (you’re adorable, I know you’re out of Sherlock nowadays, but my hugs and best vibes for you, darling), @currently-in-my-mind-palace (I love your ficlets <3), @inevitably-johnlocked (you’re still here :D), @love-in-mind-palace (luv your posts), @somedrunkpirate (hey you!), @johns-posh-boy (your posts/reblogs are really nice! Don’t go away ;)). There are so many other people I want to tag, but I can’t remember the urls, so I think it’s this.

I hope you like it, I wrote with my heart :) 

it feels: kinda weird being almost sure of my sexuality? like i’ve always known there was something there for girls but now i’m almost positive that i’m bi. it’s kinda scary because i know my family won’t accept it. well, i shouldn’t say that. they might accept it eventually, but they for sure would not be happy.

i think the conclusion i’ve come to is that i just won’t tell anyone unless it becomes seriously relevant. i.e.: i start seriously dating a girl. i think otherwise it’s just going to add unneeded tension in my life.

                                                  Consider yourself invited.
                                                   yes. Even you Snakes
                                                    and Claws. Don’t be so
                                                     stuffy. Join the party.  

9:00 PM

Now, don’t we all deserve a little applause. The first week is complete so let’s have a little treat. Shed those pesky robes and bathe in your sins, for morals and sobriety are not to be present this night. Gryffindors, retracting claws and grinning like Cheshire cats, have whispered in pretty girls’ ears, delighting in flushed cheeks, soft sighs, and giggles as they run off to spread the lion’s message. The words party, nine, seventh floor are incessantly murmured in corridors like a delicious secret posed between lovers.

Thus, as evening falls, the rumor mill draws them in. Poised girls with attentive gazes, boys with malicious grins, and wandering souls who have already sold themselves to debauchery. All convictions and pride are left behind for temptation is hard to resist. Or at least, that is what the naive will believe. Entire worlds will be colliding this night. Soldiers may lay down their ammunition, but incantations won’t be swallowed without out a hitch. And any fool could spot it. The raised chins, slinted eyes, and teeth digging into tender bottom lips. There are scoffs mingling with nervous laughter, girls who latch onto one other with worry that rattles their bones; demanding they seek warm duvets and extinguish their curiosity that will have them dead before morning light. Yet, it is too late to turn back. Two figures cast elongated shadows, index fingers curling inward as they coax students up the steps until they’re delirious and desperate for the Fat Lady to quit her unpleasant singing.

A whisper, a chant, it only seems to draw students closer though they cannot make out a single syllable. And, at last, silence is a momentary bliss as the oil painting swings outward and the crowd trickles into the common room. Simple glances, voices left unheard, music drifts into ears and plays within their very cores. Thick with decadence and secrecy, bottles of fire whiskey are popped open and sleek, weary students let intoxicating smoke fill their lungs and relax their limbs.

12:00 AM

Alcohol stained lips, students have given up control. They dance and laugh, legs tingling as they all sway in rapturous states. Have you had enough? Oh, but this is just the beginning. Line up, little doves, for tonight you are all lions and the hunt begins.

Holding the moon within teeth, they command night. It is all about competition and what is a Gryffindor party without a little bravery or courage. They cannot let you into their common room without truly experiencing their house; the taste of the lion filling your veins until you question which house you are actually meant for. It’s simple. A fun little scavenger hunt. Four people go out into the woods, the lake, the dark corners of the castle and they bring back a prize. Or two. No, make it three gifts. For they have given so much and now they want in return. Bring them only what they put on your list, and the first group to win will be richly rewarded.

But  Ah! You didn’t think they’d make it that easy. They know how you polished, deceitful serpents play. Tonight, the game is played by their rules, and you are paired up with whom they have selected. Don’t look so down, pretty bird. Brush away those frown lines, tonight is for  g l o r y  and you must claim victory.

The Sim Gala II

So, my wife told me there’s this Gala thing by @ivyriva  today, that both of us were nominated for - and since she prefers missing out on this to have a ‘girls trip to Rio’ instead, I grabbed these 2 of my fav pals and fellow nominees to not have to do this carpet thing alone, y’know. Thanks boys @mikobennett & lil Noah for not leavin’ me in the lurch with all this press stuff. Usually I ain’t that keen on all the media stuff & prefer leaving most of this up to my wife, since she’s the pro. Guess Miko can agree, ha. 

Came to my ears however, that a lot of you guys consider me your fav daddy and @amberphoenixx your fav mummy, tho we technically aren’t even parents to our little one yet. That’s crazy! Thanks so much to everyone who voted guys, means a lot to us! 

ps.: I’m sure my wife could’ve held a kickass ‘thank you’ speech now, ‘cause she’s the good one of us with words usually, y’know. But still..thank you. 

Now let’s get what we’re truly here for actually - The free beers for @mikobennett & me, and the cupcake for Noah before he gotta go to bed.

Have a cool party guys!

[Update] No Imagine

I know I said I would have an imagine up today or sometime tomorrow, but I haven’t even started, and now I lost the drive to do that no thanks to a sudden upset that happened last night. I feel cornered and like I am not sure how or what is considered ‘too taboo’ to respond to when it comes to my asks, as I don’t want to upset this person again; especially when they went so far as to threaten to delete their blog and sever the main thing we use to talk to one another.

All I can say is, I had to get used to these acts—I had to get used to feeling used, walked on, cheated, used as a platform to get somebody’s OC/Canon ideas more likes and views, stolen from in terms of headcanons and stuff I already touched upon in my imagines for people to garnish more praise and notes on their own blog—it’s not fun, no, but if I didn’t bury my head in the sand in regards to most of it, I would have left months ago.

To be honest with you, this is why I don’t surf the Jacob Frye tag on Tumblr. This is why I never go out of my way to look at art or fanfics of him, because I just don’t want something to upset me. I’ve even had to go out of my way to name block on my savior somebody in this fandom who upset me way before they even watched me, and now that their name is nearly everywhere and nearly on everything Jacob Frye, I just cannot even watch some people because of it—I envy you folks for being able to see the good in this person; I truly do, but every time I see them, I just seethe with anger given the selfish vibe I get from them daily. Since it is not their fault (entirely), I just make sure never to bother them, but I still treat them with respect when they come to me.

All the same, it’s made being in this fandom SUPER hard because of them—mainly them, because of their actions and how they flip-flop from one thing to the next just to get likes, praise, and admiration. It’s a drug, I get it, but don’t use me, my thoughts, and my fics as a reference sheet for these things.

Also, people are just running out of ideas when it comes to Jacob Frye. I’ve recycled some of my own thoughts into love letters and sexual scenes, and some people treat it like it is new. They see ‘Jacob Frye’, and they forget what they’ve already seen 95% of the time, I feel (but then there are those that just make an interesting twist on it, so I guess it is easy to see it as ‘new’).

But, in every fandom I’ve been apart of, I’ve been stolen from in some fashion. Hell, I had a comic book idea of mine stolen from some guy in the UK back in 2004 when I was trying to work on it to be published (but the ideas were stale and my artwork and writing sucked back then, so I don’t count it a major loss—just a lesson not to show too much of my original work).

Yes, this fandom can suck—but there are people here that make it worthwhile, and I guess I was hoping to this person, I was one of them. It brought me to tears to see them think otherwise in their actions. They were and always will be the main reason I ever bothered to stay here.

If they left, I would lose their kind support and everything they’ve done for me. It was why I threatened to delete my blog in return if they did theirs. I just wouldn’t see a reason to continue without them, so I pray they reconsider their actions.

If not, well…I’m at a loss.

I will be working on mostly angsty things—artwork and, possibly, The Clockwork Soldier. There’s a scene in my head that’s been there wanting to get out, and it’s depressing enough to let me get my emotions through it.

anonymous asked:

Hello Acchan! I was wondering if you had any new ideas about Lord Sirius' identity? Do you prefer Sirius being iClaudia or the twin or even someone new?

Hello Anon! Ah, such a question xD But yes, I still think Sirius could be one of the two (unless they’re a completely new character indeed, which is less probable imo but still a possibility until we know Sirius’ identity). 

Okay so, before I answer, let me just say something. I reached a point in my life as a Kuro fan where I’m now convinced that the 2CT will very probably be made canon and, while I’m still not the greatest fan of this theory to say the least (’cause psychological trauma >> hidden twin as an explanation if I had to sum up roughly), I have made peace within myself about the 2CT being the main explanation for Ciel’s character.

Anyway, I have made peace with the 2CT as long as the twin died 4 years ago and his body burnt so badly (like Vincent) that UT can’t even try to bring him back. If it turns out Sirius is the twin however… well, as of right now, I’m envisioning to put Kuro on hold for a little while, as sad as it sounds.

Just so you understand though, this possibility (of putting Kuro on hold) isn’t me being childish because a theory I don’t like became canon. I’ve been a theorizer about series I liked ever since I was 12 and I was obviously wrong a lot of times (I actually prefer being wrong anyway), so this isn’t about accuracy but about logic and consistency.

Yeah, I know, I love these words xD But anyway about Sirius being the twin…

I can’t say there aren’t hints in different chapters, although I don’t necessarily agree with all the hints other bloggers mentioned for this theory throughout the arc, but I have one big problem with it when it comes to such a development (Real!Ciel being BD!Sirius) making sense as a whole in the series.  

Of course I’ll explain why just after, but just so you know, that’s part of why I was so unsettled by ch125 last week. I used to… be sure of a few things in Kuro thanks to what we had seen until now, but after a chapter using plot convenience tricks + Violet’s plan being ridiculous and hinting at a larger explanation maybe not making a lot more sense, I am not sure of anything making sense anymore (and I don’t mean that just for the current arc). :/

From the moment an author seemingly stops being logical (although this could still be a storytelling trick of course, never say never), that means the wildest explanation could waltz in at any moment and that’s particularly unsettling for me, since I have fun theorizing by adding things together (which is why I like logic in the first place xD).

So anyway, now you know the reason why I actually was so pissed off about the new chapter: if Yana was 100% serious with what she hinted at through Violet’s plan, that means there are possible plot holes in sight (when she was able before to write arcs without those) and that means we can’t really rely on anything that was introduced in the story before. 


Back to “is Sirius Ciel’s twin being brought back as a perfected BD?” here’s why I have a problem with this theory (knowing that again, I do think some hints are in favor of this theory + I’m now okay with the 2CT being introduced as the explanation to a lot of things, except when it comes to the current arc): 

  • it doesn’t really make sense with UT’s character
  • it doesn’t really make sense with Lizzie’s character either
  • it throws off the possibility for Ciel to get actual development
  • it basically means that Kuro is over because Seb has 100% already won and eaten Ciel’s soul

So, first thing first: let’s go back in time, 4 years ago, and decide that UT had the most surreal timing ever and that somehow he managed to find where the twins had been abducted just as our!Ciel and Seb were burning down the whole place -> UT retrieves the twin’s lifeless body on the altar before he burns. 

That’s the only way UT could have somehow experimented on the twin in order for him to become Lord Sirius because, considering his reaction in ch105, a completely burnt body apparently cannot be turned into a BD, which is the reason he was so sad when he basically admitted that he would never be able to bring back Vincent.

So, okay, UT had the most unbelievable timing when the twins were abducted for an entire month, but he somehow brought the twin back and experimented on him so that he would became a BD. Okay. 

But what about what it all means for the current arc?

Because if Sirius = the twin, then that means that Lizzie completely ditched our!Ciel (and her family) all for his twin’s sake two and half months ago, which basically depicts Lizzie as being the most shallow character of the entire cast (even more than Charles Grey 👍), when logic/good writing and characterization so far would have vouched for a different behavior [x].

But okay. I mean, Frances was literally depicted as an “I-give-no-fuck-about-my-children” mom in ch125 (or so it seems), so the principle “like mother like daughter” could definitely apply there.  

But then what about the implications of Lizzie’s behavior?  

‘Cause if Lizzie ditched Ciel, since she was one of the only characters whose influence could maybe lead to positive developments for Ciel’s character and since Ciel pushes far away everyone else anyway, well… Doesn’t that mean that Lizzie and UT taking care of his twin basically isolates Ciel from anyone who isn’t Sebastian?

Ah, but that’s okay! I mean, Ciel becoming more and more “evil” due to only having an emphasis on his relationship to Seb is a development in itself, even if it’s not the most logical one after 24+ volumes of Kuro in my opinion (since he canonly did good things before). But okay, why not.

……………But then what about everything we saw about UT’s characterization so far? 

Because you know, after 24+ volumes of Kuro, a few things were made clear about UT’s character, namely…

  • we know he started the BD project because he’s trying to bring back a few people in particular
  • he also has this chain that he calls his treasure, carrying the lockets of seven people, one of them representing Claudia Phantomhive + Ciel currently has it so it probably is plot relevant (right? right Sensei?)
    • however there is no locket for Vincent (or the twin by the way), even though UT was really close to him (and we don’t know about the twin), ‘cause his body burnt and he can’t be brought back ;_;
    • btw Claudia was introduced back during the Circus arc as probably having a lot of importance to UT :D + there is the strange lineage thing to explain (since it’s possible that UT has something to do with it)
  • which means UT has this big emotional link to the P family ever since Claudia’s generation at least, and his words of ch105 could imply that he wants to protect her successors (even if he failed once when he lost Vincent).

So… UT somehow saving the twin and bringing him back to life -> A+ okay, after all the twin is Claudia’s grandchild too and maybe they knew each other before Vincent’s death, so it’s definitely possible and I really don’t have a problem with that.

But UT making Lizzie ditch her cousin (our!Ciel) so she can take care of BD!Real!Ciel instead?
It is basically equal to our!Ciel only having Sebastian by his sides and focusing on his revenge, with Sebastian who’s waiting to eat his meal (aka Ciel’s soul) once the revenge is taken care of.

So UT, man….. where are your priorities? 
I’m not kidding, where is the logic?! Why is he focusing on a dead kid who already lost his soul (especially since in the 2CT the twin is the sacrifice Ciel made in order to have Seb “cross the river”) when our!Ciel still has his soul but it’s endangered by his contract to a very real and serious demon?

Of course, maybe UT just favors the twin instead of Ciel because:

  1. it seems everyone does anyway ¯\_(ツ)_/¯   
  2. also UT showed before that he cares in his own way about our!Ciel but it’s not like Yana gave logical explanations recently so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 
  3. btw, just saying but I don’t get why Tanaka is still working at the Phantomhive estate? Lizzie should have written to him so that he should have moved into the Sphere music hall with her, UT and the twin. 

…And I think you get the point. 

I know I’m being a bit savage with my irony right now, but I feel that it’s important I completely explain why I don’t like this plot twist at all at least once (especially since Anon asked). 

Really, I don’t have any problem with people liking this theory, but still, it doesn’t satisfy me because it doesn’t add up with a lot things that were introduced before in the story + it throws off the characterizations of both UT and Lizzie, making them shallow when… they totally weren’t before the current arc.  
…Which is why I’ve been bitching about Kuro recently. xD

So again: 

  • UT bringing back the twin is okay if he managed to retrieve the body before it burnt; characterization-wise it makes sense because the twin is of Claudia’s family
  • however it’s involving Lizzie and making her choose the dead twin that’s throwing off the entire subplot on the aspects of characterization (2000% shallow) and logic (what about our!Ciel’s contract to a demon?)
  • but again since the last chapter gave us kinda wonky explanations, I’m kinda fearing that it will be the truth behind the arc anyway, with Yana not caring that it doesn’t seem to make sense on the points I mentioned 

TL;DR Anon, there are hints that can direct us towards Sirius = the twin, definitely, but I just… can’t see this as a clever plot twist, even if I gave up months ago and accepted the 2CT happening at some point. 

Just for explanatory’s sake though, here’s why Sirius = Claudia (the other likely possibility for me) pleases me more:

  • UT currently focusing on bringing Claudia back and involving Lizzie isn’t equal to Ciel being left alone with his soul contracted to a demon with no one caring.
  • Because Lizzie staying in the Sphere music hall isn’t equal to her ditching Ciel for Claudia, but to her learning about something big threatening our!Ciel (since the scene of ch113 would be about our!Ciel in that case) which means that she’s staying there to maybe find a way to save him, so it’s all for his sake.
  • it also adds up, considering that Claudia was first introduced during the Circus arc but was more emphasized on with every arc ever since the Campania (Campania -> Ciel gets the locket, Weston -> grandma confirmed, Green witch -> the family tree and the strange lineage)
  • and it promises big developments about the main plot, like Mr. K said would happen (since there is a high chance that Vincent is not the only one who ended up killed) + it’s a good way to possibly delve more into UT’s character and what he’s really after, especially with Othello being involved.
  • Finally about this scene

Please excuse me since I might be biased, but in the theory that Sirius = Twin, what about UT looking so at peace here…? Was he in love with Real!Ciel or something?
I just don’t like the Kelvin-like vibes I get from this scene if I imagine that the hand he is holding belongs to a ten year old dead kid (and I say that as someone who calls UT an obsessed stalker when it comes to the P family, but that doesn’t mean he’s on Kelvin’s level when it comes to being a pedo :/). 


TL;DR of the whole post: if I had to sum up roughly, Lizzie’s reasons for being involved (thanks to UT if he’s really the mastermind) and her reasons for staying/going back are kinda what decide if the subplot will make sense with the rest of the series.

In one case, by choosing to remain completely dedicated to the twin with no care to what she lived through with our!Ciel for the last 4 years, she appears as shallow and I don’t like it at all.
In the other case, she’s doing it all for our!Ciel’s sake and I personally think it makes more sense with what we’ve seen of her character so far. 

Again though, that’s for me. As I said, if people are enjoying the possibility of Sirius being the twin or the explanations we got so far, then I’m very happy for them, but I personally haven’t been following Kuro for the last 6 years to end up with a big explanation that doesn’t make sense by my standards (and contrarily to what you could think, it’s not hard to please me. As long as there is logic, I’ll accept everything haha :)). 

Sorry for the super long answer Anon but I hope maybe it managed to convey my thoughts correctly (sorry that I don’t have much to say in case Sirius is a new character though xD). 

Have a nice weekend! ^_^

I’ve been having a pretty shitty time, with the hospital visits and excruciating pain and temporary blindness. Also, it’s my birthday in a couple weeks!

So I don’t usually ask but… if anyone wants to, the most important things in my life are my gemsona and my stupid undertale oc pairing

Sicilian & Italian... are they two different languages?

I have been asked this question many times by my foreign colleagues and friends. My short answer is: Yes, it is a different language. If you are not bored yet and you want to learn a little more, then, you can keep reading my entry. Although Sicilian is classified in Italy as an Italian dialect, it can be considered as a seperate Romance language strongly influenced by Vulgar Latin, Modern Italian, French, Catalan, Catellano, Arabic and Greek language- There are many documents that prove that Sicilian developed before than Standard Italian. The grammar structure is also different and there are many words that a non-sicilian wouldn’t understand without a translation. Sicilian is mostly an oral language, which makes it difficult sometimes to transliterate correctly. It is being passed from family to family and not taught at school. Even if it may not sound very elegant sometimes, I think that it is a beautiful mysterious language full of meanings and emtotions hard to translate in Italian or another language without losing their intensity. In fact, in social situations, Sicilians use Sicilian when they’re very angry, frustrated, happy since in Italian some words wouldn’t have the same effect, especially some funny joke. I hope this post entry clears some of your doubts out.

If ur as aghast as I am over what our Border Patrol and ICE agents are doing under their so called “orders”, consider this:
The Orange Menace has decided he needs another 15,000 agents quickly hired to carry out his Master Plan.
I feel assured the following will happen: there will be no “extreme vetting”, in fact, I think I can safely say there will be little to no vetting and qualifications to obtain these jobs will even be lowered. This now becomes a golden opportunity for all those former drug and human smugglers to obtain an inside job and resources. Fun times.

anonymous asked:

So why is it okay to constantly complain about the "positivity police", but not okay to complain about people being negative. One seems okay, and not the other, which feels somewhat hypocritical. You aren't a better person because you are negative and critical.

Because my complaining through thorough, considered posts on the show, is only taking into account the text, and the meta issues of creator, actor and media commentary. What I’m doing is interacting with and criticising the primary source; I’m not going to slag anyone for doing the same thing and coming up with a positive analysis.

My issue with the ‘positivity police’ is that they’re not interacting with the main text, but are making decisions about the validity of specific fandom members’ own interactions with the primary source, and deeming those interactions as unwanted or even anti to the 'accepted’ interpretation. And in doing that they’re attempting to decide what is acceptable and unacceptable when it comes to how someone is allowed to validly interact with the primary sources.

When I complain about that, I’m not complaining about the way someone sees and interprets the primary text, I’m complaining about the gatekeeping effect of trying to invalidate others’ opinions about the show itself.

I’ll not begrudge anyone who is thrilled about the latest spoilers, but I will vocally begrudge them attempting to invalidate and shame another interpretation.

anonymous asked:

I am personally not worried about Touka, but I am a little intrigued by Mutsuki's jealousy towards her. Also, I love the fact Haise was so attracted by Touka even if he didn't remember her. I think that at this point it's obvious the two of them have a strong attraction for each other and it's interesting how despite this they can't communicate properly.

Hey Anon! Thanks for reading :) 

And yeah, I was a bit caught off guard that it seemed Haise actually went more than twice to :Re while in fact it’s not that surprising (considering that he thought about her in ch31.5 during Christmas, way after the last time we saw him going to :Re). 

Anyway, I also agree that the difference between Haise’s behavior and Kaneki’s current awkwardness is a bit funny, but all in all that’s not so surprising either :) 

Kaneki really went through a lot during the last arc: between Arima’s death, Eto’s proposal of becoming the OEK… And as I said once, he probably hasn’t showed an actual smile ever since Arima died, so since he’s focusing on “having to fight” (like after the Aogiri arc in TG), a lot of things are put on hold for the time being.

That being said…

…Touka’s punch didn’t really help the fact that things between them are awkward and that they need to talk. But I’m hopeful…

‘Cause Touka asked for a talk and Kaneki’s comrades are aware that he’s having a few difficulties processing what the role of the OEK means. 

So don’t worry Anon, I’m sure they will be able to start communicating properly once they get to talk! 

Have a nice weekend and thanks again for reading! :)


Well, Anon, from the moment this…

happens just before they started the investigation for the auction arc, I think that means that Sasako making this compliment to Mutsuki didn’t make them uncomfortable. On they contrary they were rather flustered and happy (because they already had this obsessive crush on Haise back then). 

Basically just consider that at the moment of :Re ch1, Mutsuki already was starting to be “in love” with Haise, okay? This will make things easier xD

I hope it helps, have a nice weekend!


Hey Anon! Well, between her obvious crush on Saiko in ch112 and this omake, yeah probably. :)

The point is, she’s interested in Saiko: she could be a lesbian, bi or pan, it’s all that matters ‘cause her crush is super cute.

Pass it on.

Haha, have a nice weekend Anon!


Hey Anon! 

Well, in my opinion, it should probably be either…

or…

or…

Not so different from the fandom as a whole, hahah xDD Have a nice weekend Anon!

Hiya, I'm not too sure how to introduce myself but here goes. I go by Alice, I love the FF series, a few animes, and a total slut for gladio. Like omg cant even help myself. Anyway, can i have headcanons of gladio taking care of his horny drunk gf?

Thank you for being so patient! And I get you, Alice. I think we’re all sluts for Gladdy deep down inside, even if we don’t want to admit it. and Iggy because dude is that thirst real or what

Last time I played the game, the camera got stuck on Gladio’s abs after using a potion/elixir. So Noct is off dying somewhere because all I could see was abs. It was great.

Slight nsfw below, friends! (can this even be considered nsfw? idk.)


Gladdy & His Drunk Girlfriend

Gladio would be extremely amused by his girlfriend’s antics. He’d probably be the one sliding her shots or ordering her more drinks, simply because he gets a kick out of seeing her completely unbridled personality. The fact that she goes into a state of not caring what people say or think, freely speaking her mind, is always hilarious to him. His bellowing laugh would be the only thing to distract her enough to slur out a “what’s going on?” before taking another shot.

Eventually, Gladio would come to realize that women don’t usually have as high of a tolerance for alcohol as he does - his sheer size alone makes him forget that it doesn’t take much for his girl to become smashed. Once that realization hits, Gladio will be super protective of her. He’d definitely want to get out of the bar or restaurant to some place he feels he could keep her safe.

We all know Gladio isn’t one to turn down sexual ideas, but he’d be pushing away wandering hands, occasionally telling her she needs to calm down. It would be so difficult for this guy to push her away, especially because she wants him so badly. About 80% of the time, Gladdy would allow her to sleep off her drunken state, successfully getting her back to his place, tucking her into bed. He knows she’s not in her best state of mind, and would feel slightly guilty doing anything with her when she’s not completely coherent. However, the other 20% of the time, he’d give in to her pleads and touches to have the time of his life because neither of them would be holding anything back.

No matter what happened, Gladio would end up leaving her to sleep while he went into the other room, ate a Cup Noodle, and read some before going to sleep himself. He’d wake up much earlier than her, as he usually does, and prepare her a protein packed breakfast, accompanied by pain killer and a full glass of water, to help fight off her massive hangover. He would go back into the room and kiss her awake, telling her it was time to get up and face the day - finding it absolutely adorable when she tried hitting him with a pillow so she could get more sleep.

“NH shippers shouldn’t hate Sakura because she’s considered a threat to their ship”

Except we don’t??? First of all she’s not thread because the ships have been solidified, Kishi isn’t gonna come back and erase shit. Second, we don’t hate Sakura. In fact 95% of NH shippers don’t even talk or think about Sakura. It’s the Sakura, NS, and SS shippers that have a problem with Hinata and always have her name on their blogs, not us. Other shippers have a problem with Hinata and US, not the other real around.

That anon is so right about you being like Stevie.. You are truly a special soul and so very kind + generous

Hey anon, thank you so much. In my country we say that’s very rude to turn down a compliment, but I have to say that even though I thrive to be kind and generous, I’m not really much like Stevie. It’s important for me that my followers know that the primary reason I keep a blog is to share all this love for her, but there’s always a dose of ego involved in the process… It would be hypocrite of me not to admit I want this blog to be popular and considered a good source of Stevie pictures; it’s not all selfless all the time. Which is not to say I wouldn’t still be doing it even if just for myself. Sorry I rambled so much instead of just thanking you, I hope you understand what I’m trying to say.

We had a super busy day yesterday. Agility class in the morning, and a trick training workshop in the evening - 4 hours of clicker training. Needless to say, Maya was knackered, but she did so well and I’m really proud. At the tricks workshop she was a little bit stressed out by one of the other dogs reacting and growling, and also startled by a few sudden noises, but recovered REALLY well from the things that upset her and worked exceptionally, particularly considering how busy she had been! I gave her lots of breaks, taking her outside somewhere quiet to have a breather. She was a little distracted and tired towards the end, so for the last hour and a half we were mostly just chilling out, and I didn’t ask much else from her but to settle. I was a bit awkward but met some great trainers, and hope I made a good impression lol (screw anxiety)… I hope Maya made a good impression too, as these are handlers I may become involved in a stunt/display team with.
