isn't that terrifying

Okay, so, we all know how good the Voltron writers are with continuity and foreshadowing, right? Like there’s that one scene in Season 1 where Coran offhandedly mention the Weblum which of course reappears in Season 2. Well that got me thinking…there’s this one scene in Season 2 in which the writers deliberately go into detail about a possible plot point that is then just… not mentioned again. And they don’t seem like the kind of writers to just to tell us all that information and not have it go anywhere.

Which scene?

WELL (excuse the horrible quality of the screencaps)

THIS little gem, in which Hunk contemplates whether or not the Galra could successfully brainwash Shiro using his prosthetic. And his conclusion is…yeah, they totally could. So like, I’m not saying we’re gonna get a brainwashed Shiro in the future but…

We’re gonna get a brainwashed Shiro in the future.

Reaper is without doubt a patient tactician but boring war council sometimes needs fast decision.

Aka the mandatory Doomfist fanart I needed to do.

AX Wacom Demo

Ahh h-hey everyone!! I’m very nervous to share this here, but I wanted to mention that I was invited by Wacom to do a demo at their AX booth which is in the Entertainment Hall. ;; I’ll be… hopefully demo-ing some colouring techniques.

I’m really scared about it since I’m not very used to drawing in front of people, but I’m going to do my best…. ;;; if you want to stop by for a little bit and see it, I’m drawing from 12-12:45-ish on July 1st.

The look on Mino’s face when Zico cusses, and the cute ass excited look Zico gets at his reaction is what I’m here for.

top media (andy + teen top + 100% + up10tion + park dongmin): awkward family photo collection

1. family photo where all the younger brothers are happy bc they’re still innocent but the older brothers have seen some shit (ft. papa andy in the middle. does anyone else think this looks like one of those historical dramas where the dad is gonna die but he has 22 sons who want a big portion of his inheritance and they’re gonna kill each other if they have to)

2. family photo after papa andy warned them to be more affectionate or he would give them all 9 pm curfews (ft. older brother ricky nearly strangling a terrified sunyoul in an attempt to show father just how affectionate he was, and bitto actually getting strangled)

3. big brother niel sucking up to their father and trying to convince him to buy him a new car. ricky is no longer choking sunyoullie but bitto is already half-dead

4. changjo is trying to escape. everybody is noticing. nobody is stopping him. 

Sanji gets reverted back to a child and finally gets the childhood he deserves. [2/?]

  • Zoro takes what he assumes is Sanji into the kitchen.  He looks like what a 5 year old Sanji would look like but infinitely less irritating.
  • “Umm, where is this?”
  • “Your kitchen.  I know it’s been a while since you’ve been in it dartbrow.”
  • “I have a name.”
  • “Sanji!”
  • Chopper speeds into the room and Zoro lets down Sanji back to the actual floor instead of dangling from his hands.
  • “Did you eat something weird again?  What happened?  Why are you so small?  Did someone touch you with their devil fruit?  Do you know where you are?”
  • Zoro can feel the tension building up in Sanji’s shoulders.  He wasn’t there for the fight against Big Mom so he got an extra summarized version of Sanji’s past.  He figured Sanji wasn’t always the person he met on that floating restaurant years ago.
  • “Slow down there Chopper.”
  • He stands a little taller when he speaks again, “How do you know my name?  You called me Sanji when you ran in.”

Sometimes when I’m looking through the Harry Hook tag I wonder if we’re talking about the same character. He’s not some sweetheart who’d give everything up because he loves someone. He’s a badly domesticated coyote Uma is using as an attack dog. He’s a fucked up kid, likely abused and emotionally neglected by his father, but this explains his behavior instead of excuses it.

I don’t even think he’s really in love with Uma so much as in love with how powerful she is. Look at him; he worships her. He gravitates around her, watching how people scatter and obey her without a thought, enthralled by the respect and terror she commands. She’s powerful, and he loves it. 

He’s constantly looking for someone to attack, someone he can push around and show that he is better and stronger and more important than they are without actually lifting a hook to prove it. He gets a thrill out of it. Everyone he’s antagonized has been helpless against him. He never goes after someone who can fight back because he knows he’ll get his ass handed to him. 

He went after Dizzy, as it’s clear he’s been doing for years, and he held out the papers (money, probably) Mal had given her for a good thirty seconds before he finally puts them in his pocket. He’s daring her to take them back. It’s a show of power, that he doesn’t even have to threaten her anymore to get what he wants. She holds no power in this situation, and that’s how he wants it.

He threw a fit, knocking everything off of the counter, when Mal took control of the situation away from him. His breath hitched when Mal grabbed his wrist. He’s not used to that. He’s not used to people actually doing something–fighting back, as it were–when he harasses them, and it likely hasn’t happened since Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos left the Isle. He needed to get control of the situation back, so what did he do? Swept everything off the counter to make a mess for Dizzy to clean up. He left immediately after, just to ensure he got the last word.

He only provoked Jay when he knew Evie would hold him back, when he held all the cards and they knew that only way they were going to get Ben back was by cooperating with him. That little jump back, that little laugh after Jay lunges at him was him showing that he was startled by Jay coming after him. He laughed only after Evie dragged Jay back to get control of the situation back and make it seem like he knew it was going to happen.

Watch Carlos in that scene; he’s terrified. He and Harry have a history, and judging by how he flinches when Harry barks at him, it’s not pleasant. Harry’s goal seems to be to terrorize and psyche out the Core Four. Barking at Carlos seems almost like an afterthought, like he realized, “Oh, I forgot one,” and just did what he had always done to freak out the deVil kid.

He went after Ben when the king was tied to the mast, invading his personal space, talking about how much he would like to hook him if only Uma would let him. There was nothing Ben could do to defend himself. The only reaction he had was to act like he didn’t care, and that seemed to frustrate Harry. He wanted a reaction out of him, something to show that his favorite, tried-and-true tactic could work on anyone, from Auradon or the Isle.

The first time we see Harry in a physical fight, he’s easily bested. I won’t get into the whole “hook thrown overboard” debacle, since that’s another post. Harry only gets the upper hand by surprising his foe, but once the surprise is gone, Jay physically overpowered him. Jay has a sword. Harry has a sword and his hook, and he needs to use both to his advantage to stand an even match against Jay.

I don’t think he’s physically very strong or much good at fighting; that’s why they have Gil. Uma is the leader, the brains, the one whose charisma allowed them to amass such a crew. Gil is the brute, the brawn, the sweet if naive teen who seems like he’s only kept around because he’s useful. Harry is the attack dog who uses psychological warfare to make people believe that they don’t stand a chance against him and by extension, Uma, by attacking them verbally and terrorizing them when they’re powerless.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Harry Hook. I think he’s a fantastic character with a lot of potential. It’s just that I think he’s being overly romanticized when it’s clear he’s a troubled teenager with control issues. Don’t mistake his devotion for love, don’t mistake his antagonizing of helpless people for sincere flirting. I agree, he’s pan as all get-out, but don’t romanticize his actions. 

I think part of the problem is how accustomed we are to “bad boy” characters like Harry Hook being the love interest of YA romance. We expect a heart of gold, we expect him being in love to show that he’s not such a bad guy. But sometimes there is no hidden heart of gold, and love will never be a substitute for redemption.

TL;DR: Harry Hook is a troubled teen with a manipulative streak who gets a thrill out of intimidating and bullying helpless people. Love will not redeem him; the kid needs therapy to help him understand that his actions were wrong. He’s a bad person but a great character. By all means, write about him, make fanart, talk about how you enjoy his character, but don’t romanticize him.

anonymous asked:

Question: I call myself ace. However, I crave stuff like cuddling, etc. that isn't sexual. Dating terrifies me, and I want nothing to do with it. TBH I just want to cuddle with someone. Would you classify this as "ace" still? Thanks!

Totally!  Wanting to cuddle is completely separate from sexual attraction, many aces still want to cuddle.

Below is a helpful(but not complete) list of possible attractions.  One might feel or not feel any of combination of these.  Everyone experiences things differently, but these are meant to help you begin to understand your feelings.  What you described sounds like sensual attraction.

  • Sexual attraction: attraction that makes people desire sexual contact or shows sexual interest in another person(s).
  • Romantic attraction: attraction that makes people desire romantic contact or interaction with another person or persons.
  • Aesthetic attraction: occurs when someone appreciates the appearance or beauty of another person(s), disconnected from sexual or romantic attraction.
  • Sensual attraction: the desire to interact with others in a tactile, non-sexual way, such as through hugging or cuddling.
  • Emotional attraction: the desire to get to know someone, often as a result of their personality instead of their physicality. This type of attraction is present in most relationships from platonic friendships to romantic and sexual relationships.
  • Intellectual attraction: the desire to engage with another in an intellectual manner, such as engaging in conversation with them, “picking their brain,” and it has more to do with what or how a person thinks instead of the person themselves

I decided hey, who doesn’t want to rip off clothing that isn’t theirs in a totally platonic fashion.

… change every so often.  :|

It’s also Artyom’s MO to come into the laundromat and have a verbal fit.  I don’t know why.

NOW the fit is warranted.  THEN it wasn’t.  xD

….. cat pee is notoriously difficult to remove.  His reaction is understandable.  Andrei’s isn’t.

You disgust me.  You really do.  xD

It’s been a while since I’ve done chibis so I did these guys! Honestly, I’ve never felt so judge by my own drawing before Abel XD I felt soo judged the whole time! Like, I was singing while I was drawing and the face he was giving me was making me feel like he was going “you like to sing, huh? Yeah?” I had a legit onesided argument with him about that face he was making. My brother was concerned and when he saw the face, he joined in the argument. It was really funny XD
Elymas was really really fun to draw, I love him soo much! He’s the best Chibi I think I’ve ever done!!
Mob boss Bendy looks so done with the little one clinging to his arm…

A KHR Thing Where

Tsuna loves doing the paperwork after becoming Decimo.

This is the thing that actually makes the Mafia world absolutely terrified of Tsuna.

(“Hardcore.” They said.)

It reaches a point where Tsuna eagerly awaits more paperwork.

(In Reborn’s opinion, the way Tsuna lit up when Gokudera brought more paperwork was completely unnatural.)

The Truth (a.k.a the actual reasons Tsuna likes doing the paperwork):

1. It is the most normal thing about becoming Decimo.

2. There are so many things that one can find if they bother with reading the paperwork, blackmail and bribery materials included.

(“Lambo, what did I say about paying attention in your grammar lessons?”
“How did you know that I got a low mark on the last test?!” “I have my resources.”
Ah, the benefits of written reports.)

i wanted to make a little post saying, as someone four days post op, that i don’t want people to worry that recovery from top surgery is unbearable or immensely painful or any of that stuff. it is manageable and very worth it to get this life changing surgery. yes there’s some pain, and yes you have very limited mobility, but you can handle it. the anxiety of what recovery could be is often scarier than what recovery actually is <3
