is-it-that-time-of-year-already

Throughout the years, there has been a high demand for a Pixar film-based world in Kingdom Hearts withToy Story always being at the top of fan’s lists. It is understandable considering how popular the Toy Storyfilm franchise is among young adults who were just children when the 1995 film first released. Series Director Tetsuya Nomura has also been repeatedly asked about the inclusion of Pixar-based worlds throughout the years, and back in 2012 he had this to say on the subject:

“I wish and wish, but I’ve wanted for a long time to have Pixar titles appear in the series. I’m already working on many ideas, but I can’t say whether they will become a reality or not.”

Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] Ultimania - Main Interview with Tetsuya Nomura - May 12th 2012

Proof of this long desire of Nomura’s has long since been found within the data of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix + with the existence of untextured Woody and Buzz models. Many believe that the main characters ofToy Story were going to be summons added in for the release of KH2FM, and yet that does not appear to be the first time Toy Story was planned for a Kingdom Hearts game.

Found within the pages of the “Kingdom of Hearts (tentative)” design document that was given to Disney staff for proposal purposes in the early development days of Kingdom Hearts is a plethora of unused designs and art. One such piece of art that remains lost in the annals of history is the existence of an unused Toy Story world design.

In the world artwork shown above, you can see Andy’s house and Al’s Toy Barn all sitting on top of the iconic Pizza Planet rocket that has appeared in numerous Pixar films over the last 20 years. Despite Nomura’s long-time desire to see Pixar worlds in Kingdom Hearts, it is still a surprise that the push for it has been going for longer than 13 years.

What isn’t surprising is the lack of Toy Story in the first Kingdom Hearts game, especially since Disney and Pixar were having numerous disagreements over their business relationship and Toy Story 2 around the timeKingdom Hearts was in development. There were probably many barriers that kept Squaresoft and Nomura from being able to have permission to use it, but that clearly did not stop them from at least pitching the idea of it as shown from the design document.

In 2006, Disney and Pixar merged as one company so the issues that may have existed back then that limited the inclusion of Pixar worlds in Kingdom Hearts is gone. Now it is only a matter of Nomura and the development team to go to infinity and beyond to make this a reality!

Perhaps the time for Toy Story and Pixar-based worlds has arrived with Kingdom Hearts III which promises to be chock full of brand new worlds based on Disney films.

I have carpal tunnel from drawing too much y i k e s

Ugh, CTS is the worst DX

My mom got it after years of sorting mail at the post office. She had surgery for it in ‘95, but by that time she had permanent nerve damage from letting it go for too long and lost a lot of feeling in both hands. Now she’s forever dropping things :(

Have a look through the [safe hands] tag. There are special stretching exercises to help fight against that sort of thing. Don’t know if they’ll help if you already have it, but I can’t see it making it any worse >.<

Since I already did one for Papa Mako, now it’s Mama Korra’s turn with the big offspring my crazy fangirl mind gave to her ~_~”

Due to her Avatar duties, Korra cannot spend much time with family as much as she would like but, whenever she can, she tries to make the most of it. Looking back years ago, Korra never imagined herself starting a big family with anyone. It was far from easy to balance the needs of her children with the rest of the world but every time she would be back from one of her trips, back to their arms, Korra was sure she didn’t regret anything.

anonymous asked:

Sakura used to be one of my favorite characters because I felt like I could really relate to her working hard to become strong, not having any special clan techniques or anything. But I despise what she became. I always thought she would get over Sasuke or at least see him as a human being and we started coming close...but then Gaiden had to shred her character development to pieces, stomp on it, and then shit all over it. I refuse to accept that's really the character I loved.

I find it interesting both Sakura and Hinata’s fanbase think they’re underdogs. Rock Lee and Tenten both have no bloodline power or special jutsu, they’re both hard working too. I really don’t get why so many people prefer Sakura and Hinata. But that’s just me.

IMO, Sakura was already pathetic in chapter 699, but you’re right, Kishi could’ve still let her grow out of her shallow and vapid 16 year old self in Gaiden, that’s a 15 year timeskip, time and parenthood change people. But instead of letting her act her age, Kishi just kept her childish needy fangirl persona. 

My personal theory is Kishi is shitting on the shipping fandom’s favourites cos the shippers hijacked his story. Or maybe he just has problems with girls who chase “the man of her dream” due to negative personal experience, idk.

anonymous asked:

woah you've been to everywhere. how do you do that? how do you afford to travel that much??

well my parents and brother are the only family that live in north ameri s. I go to Europe a lot because my moms from england and some countries are literally a train away. its easy to hop around from country to country, we take the train lots. Ive been to central Africa + south Africa for my dads family a few times but not in years because its so far away and dangerous at times. and i went to NY for business so the costs were already payed for. gud experiences!!!

A few reasons you shouldn’t worry about apocalypse predictions.

66–70 CE Simon bar Giora, Essenes, The Essene sect of Jewish ascetics saw the Jewish revolt against the Romans in 66–70 as the final end-time battle. By the authority of Simon, coins were minted declaring the redemption of Zion. 
365 CE Hilary of Poitiers, Announced that the end would happen that year. 
375–400 CE Martin of Tours, Stated that the world would end before 400, writing, “There is no doubt that the Antichrist has already been born. Firmly established already in his early years, he will, after reaching maturity, achieve supreme power." 
500 CE Hippolytus of Rome, Sextus Julius Africanus, Irenaeus, All three predicted Jesus would return in the year 500. One prediction was based on the dimensions of Noah’s ark. 
793 Apr 6 Beatus of Liébana, The Spanish monk prophesied the second coming of Christ and the end of the world on that day to a crowd of people. 
800 Sextus Julius Africanus, Sextus Julius Africanus revised the date of Doomsday to 800.
799–806 Gregory of Tours, Calculated the End occurring between 799 and 806. 
848 Thiota, Declared that the world would end during that year. 
992–995 Various Christians, Good Friday coincided with the Feast of the Annunciation; this had long been believed to be the event that would bring forth the Antichrist, and thus the end-times, within 3 years. 
1000 Jan 1 Pope Sylvester II, The Millennium Apocalypse at the end of the Christian Millennium. Various Christian clerics predicted the end of the world on this date, including Pope Sylvester II. Riots occurred in Europe and pilgrims headed east to Jerusalem.
1033 Various Christians, Following the failure of the January 1, 1000 prediction, some theorists proposed that the end would occur 1000 years after Jesus’ death, instead of his birth.

It’s particularly cold tonight

I look up at the night sky again
It’s been a year already

Memories have dimmed
All those times I walked you home
They’re so precious

I used to think we’d share these memories
when you used to be right by my side
I wonder if you feel the same
but I can’t really tell

It’s just sometimes
I miss you
I miss kissing you and hugging you

It’s just sometimes
I want to see you but today it’s making me cry

Inside this drawer I opened
there are pictures of you smiling
Can’t throw them out
I’m afraid I’ll lose you completely

I used to think we’d share these memories
when you used to be right by my side
Do you feel the same or is it just me
You’re probably over us already

It’s just sometimes
I miss you
I miss kissing you and hugging you

It’s just sometimes
I want to see you but today it’s making me cry

I miss you I miss you baby
I miss you I miss you

I wish I’d been a better man
But I don’t dare try to turn things back
I keep living like the idiot I am
with my heart locked up inside

It’s just sometimes
I miss you
I miss kissing you and hugging you

It’s just sometimes
I want to see you but today it’s making me cry

8. kissing debut / requested

Today was the big day.

Finally, after tireless dance practices that ended in more laughter than choreography, spending late nights recording in the studio until the lyrics felt like they were beginning to sound monotone on your lips, and endlessly changing outfits and having make-up plastered to your skin in numerous styles for concept photos – finally, the girl group that you have invested your recent years into was debuting their second album. And tonight, you were performing live at the Seoul Olympic Stadium with five other pop groups.

There was almost two hours to go until the show began, and you could already hear the faint sounds of the fans crowding into the stadium, all excitedly cheering for their favourite groups. A smile tugged at the corners of your mouth at the thought that not one, but thousands of people out there were going to be cheering for you; it felt like when your group had debuted for the very first time all over again.

All six of you waited in the group’s dressing room, either with headphones plugged in or heads resting on neck pillows precariously so as though to not smudge their make-up while they had a quick power nap before the performance. You, on the other hand, were scrolling through your Twitter notifications, skimming over the tweets from excited fans that were either attending the show or wishing they were – making your heart flutter with happiness over their kind words, and wanting to make it possible that they could all be sitting in the stadium this evening. You noticed that your brother group, Bangtan Sonyeondan, were tagged in many of the tweets popping up in your notifications. They were also performing tonight; their recently debuted MV for Dope had received an incredible reception, which you and the rest of your members were so happy for. It also gave you a small boost of confidence that hopefully your fans would feel the same way about your group’s comeback, but from past events, you knew that they all supported you and your members no matter what.

Out of curiosity, you tapped onto the BTS Twitter page and started scrolling through their recent tweets, and it was then that you noticed one from their adorable 4D member, Taehyung. It was a selfie of him pulling an expression that made your stomach twist, his tongue sticking out of the side of his mouth with one of his eyes closed in a wink. After the overflow of tweets from your sweet fans, you must have missed his tag when you were scrolling through your notifications. The tweet read:

haleinskis asked:

I'm pretty sure it's already been established by JD, and if not him then it was someone else because I could have sworn that someone official said it, that the novels are not canon for the show. It was from the novels as well, I think, that fandom got the idea that Derek was underage when he met Kate and she killed his family. I mean I know that idea was already floating around, but a lot of people in fandom took it as canon that Derek was underage once that info from the novel was released.

At least I think that’s where they got it from. I didn’t join the fandom until 2013 and that was also the same year I saw a post or something about Derek’s age in the novels and not long after that being told that the novels weren’t canon. But it’s been a long time and I could be completely wrong.

Ok, thanks for letting me know that the novels aren’t considered canon. :) That makes me feel a bit better, considering the quality I saw so far.

But I haven’t read the novels and like I said there are plenty of reasons to assume that Derek was underage when he met Kate. First off, his apparent age at the start of the show – being only a few years older than the teens, Hoechlin’s own age at the time, and Derek’s general behavior, was not that of a mid-to-upper twenties year old guy. Then there’s the fact of Laura - who is his older sister and who was still in high school - and the ID (which, like I said in my post earlier, might have been a fake ID but there’s no reason really for someone to get a false ID that makes him out to be younger than he actually is).

Then there are comments made by Kate when Derek was captured – someone replied mentioning this earlier and I can’t find it right now, sorry!! – about the way Derek “grew up” over the past several years, which gives her a very predatory vibe and suggests that Derek wasn’t finished growing when she last saw him.

Creepy. And heavily implies underage.

Maybe some people got the idea that Derek was underage from the novels, but I’m pretty sure a lot of fans have never heard of the novels (I certainly hadn’t) and assumed from the way the show was framed that Derek was underage.

anonymous asked:

I feel so lonely all the time and I'm starting to lose all my friends, it's hard to fit in and find new friends as everyone is so tight already, I still have 2 years until uni so how do I endure these 2 years??

literally this is how I felt and it never got better for me until uni so just focus on yourself and doing your best. better to have real friends than to be around people who only think of you as their second choice! try to look at the positives even though it’s hard to see anything good in being lonely but at least you don’t have distractions now and can focus on studying well. a good way to maybe make a friend is try to befriend new students because they won’t know anyone and they’ll appreciate you trying to talk to them too! I know how it sucks feeling like you’re outside every friend circle kind of watching everyone have fun or just feeling so alone even though you’re with them but just stay strong it’ll be worth it in the end :)

I’m still so perplexed that Matsuda and Ide both think it’s completely plausible for Takada to abandon her ideology entirely just so she can get Light’s dick whenever she wants. Like, you guys just spent so much time establishing Takada is an actual Kira supporter and now you accept this without even stopping to wonder if there is anything fishy about her turning her values upside down for a man she only just met again after years. Sheesh.

“Because we already have a twelve year old, an eight year old, and a three year old! I wasn’t sure if you– wanted any more.”

“Rox! I came from a family with four kids, remember?” He smiled. “I’m used to loud, chaotic households. Besides, I love raising kids with you. I’ll do it again as many times as you want.”

“Seriously? Ugh, Casper, what the hell?”

“What??”

“How are you still literally like, the best human ever? Like, what could I ever have even done to deserve you?”

“Be you. That’s what. I love you. Now let’s get you and baby number four to bed, hmm? If I recall, you get very cranky when you’re pregnant.”

“Hey!! I was just saying super nice things about you!!”

“I love youuuu.”

N,

I swear I have never loved someone like I love you, and the truth is I just paused writing this to decide if that sentence should be in past or present tense. I would call you my best friend but I think you gave up that title and role a long time ago.

And, fuck, after 8 years of whatever all this was I’m writing a letter on fucking tumblr that you will never see because you already broke my heart a hundred times so I thought I would spare myself this time from hearing your answer. I wish I hated you, I really do. God knows it would be easier and could just forget you but clearly I can’t do that.
I’m so fucking sorry that I fell in love with every inch of your being and would have done anything for you. There’s no point to it but I miss you and think about you every day and I’m pretty sure you barely think of me and you don’t even  remember my birthday anymore, you used to remember my birthday at least.
I get that there was a lot of shit and you wanted to run from it, and I’m sorry I didn’t run with you, but I couldn’t do that. I know you didn’t want to deal with it and I certainly couldn’t make you do it, nobody makes you do anything. I’m so fucking sorry I didn’t know what to do to help you, we were young and clueless and we still are. I want nothing more than for you to live the happiest life you can and get the fuck away from all the shit you’re doing now please stop trying to become a tragedy.

Fuck but even after all this I still love you, and I always will, even when you forget my name in 10 years, I won’t be able to forget that face that broke my heart day after day and I won’t even be mad about it. It was a privilege to be next to you, eventhough I was always your last choice, I don’t regret a second of it. I’m just sorry I wasn’t enough for you.

I hope you at least know how much I love you, even if you don’t feel the same.

The end of an era… and the start of a new

Today I am officially shutting down this unofficial blog about OL féminin. During the past three years, more than 100,000 of you have chosen to follow this blog and many more have visited it.

You have together made this blog more successful than I ever could have imagined, but it is time to move on. 

This blog will from now on be replaced by the already existing Twitter account which you can find at www.twitter.com/olfeminines. In addition, an Instagram account has been set up at www.instagram.com/olfeminines. It is my hope that many of you will choose to follow the team there instead.

If you have any questions or if you would like to continue (or start!) to contribute with photos, videos, articles or interviews, don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail at olfeminines@gmail.com.

I love that you are such a hate-free blog. It's so refreshing to see someone just love the show and express love for their favorite character without putting other characters down-and being insanely hilarious at the same time. Girl u keep doing u because it's working out so well. You've been my favorite blog for at least a year now and I'm sure that will continue as long as you're blogging. Keep on making posts about cracked out-Regina, much love.

Thank you so much!  WOW.  This is like, a bunch of amazing compliments wrapped in one giant compliment, and I don’t even know who you are so I can hug you until you pass out because I don’t know my own strength and I tend to get overly excited about things, and it causes boundary issues and people get weirded out, so I over compensate by being emotionally distant most of the time because I don’t know how to properly interact with people due to societies strict and demanding guidelines!

YAY!

Who’s Vanessa?

Hey y'all!
So as I already started answering questions I just thought I might introduce myself as a new member of the letsrecover team!
My name is Vanessa but I guess some might already know me from instagram as “healthy_vansi”. I am 21 years old and from Germany.
Well, I suffered for more than 6 years from anorexia. A typical diet turned into a nightmare - however the actual reasons were rooted a lot deeper. Although I was several times in specialized clinics for eating disorder patients I stayed in a comfort zone which actually wasn’t one over all those years.
I could battle every therapist with my wise words, I knew everything about my illness and all the theory - however, I always refused doing it myself. Making my words actions. Letting go of my sick routines. I needed them to feel “safe” and I was afraid of anything new as I kept expecting the worst.
At some point, things came together and I finally took the plunge to move out from home - even though of course there were lots of risks. But, boy, I do not regret anything and this was the best decision I ever made.
Somehow, eating, resting and feeling weak all of a sudden didn’t terrify me anymore. Instead of working against my own body again I just decided to let it happen. Accepted extreme hunger, “binges”, lazyness and pain - and I fought through the bad conscience.
I didn’t take the scale with me but on several visits at home I noticed that I gained. And it was okay. I felt more energized, more happy and was able to concentrate again. I wanted to finally do my A-levels and not waist any more time for this illness. So I kept kicking ass. And reached the best possible grade in my school career - but even more important, I started liking my body again. Me, the one who always hated her stomach no matter what weight. And I reached a healthy weight - guess what, my fears and worst expectations never came true. 

I like looking more soft instead of edgy and bony. And I love telling my parents that I feel good instead of making them constantly worry. It’s a great feeling to be appreciated because you’re loved instead of receiving pity and shocked views due to looking almost like death in person.
I can do sports now - because it’s fun! Me, the one who was too weak to go grocerie shopping yet forced herself to exercise daily. Me, the one who thought would always connect sports with burning calories and nothing else.
What do I want to achieve with this post? Apart from a little inside in my story I want to motivate you. Because even though not everything is perfect and I still have my struggles (though these are now “real life problems” and not food issues anymore) - recovery is so worth it! Life will always have its ups and downs, but with a healthy body and mind, struggles are way easier to cope with.
And no matter how long or deep you’re into this illness - it’s possible to get out of it, at least to a point where you know how to take care of yourself and avoid relapsing.
My motto: Anyone who’s able to destroy his-/herself like you do when you listen to your eating disorder has the willpower and strength to get out of this hell as well!
