it could have so much potential

anonymous asked:

Headcanons for sebastian and undertaker as parents from birth til their child(ren) grows up <3

Sebastian.

  • The soccer mom™.
  • Would throw stones at you during activities, making sure you get a perfect score every time.
  • So competitive, when all the other parents say, “I’ll always love you, even if you lose.” He’ll be saying, “I did not spend a month teaching you the perfect performance for you to come second, go and win, ok?”.
  • Would never use physical punishment, because he doesn’t know the full extent of his strength and may seriously maim or kill his human/halfbreed child.
  • Headcanon demon children get abandoned and only the strong survive.
  • Would always show up for your play/recital/thing, people wouldn’t know how he gets so much work done too (almost like he doesn’t sleep).
  • Would homeschool you if he didn’t have work, and could teach you more than any school.
  • Not above extortion and blackmail on school teachers and bullies.
  • Shamelessly threatens potential love interests, might show them his fangs, if they’ve been really bad, he’ll show his true form and kill them slowly and painfully.
  • Spoils you rotten, makes sure to get you lots of gifts when he travels and exotic ingredients.
  • Does practically all of the cooking, but never eats unless he has to keep up human appearances.

Undertaker.

  • Six words.
  • Bring.
  • Your.
  • Dad.
  • To.
  • School.
  • Day.
  • Would show your classmates pickled eyeballs and dismembered limbs, but all the teachers would be too scared to comment.
  • When you got home you would be used to seeing coffins and the scent of embalming fluid meet you.
  • May find corpses next to the leftovers in your walk in fridge (where he preserves his favourite guests).
  • Helping him with the occasional autopsy, he lets you keep the bones to decorate your room.
  • Designing the floral arrangements for a funeral and doing more of the organising, because he only handles the bodies.
  • If you ever get teased you can say, “When your grandmother dies I am legally allowed to dissect her.”
  • He’ll tell you bedtime stories about his life that would mature with you, until their graphic depictions of beheadings instead of the fairytale endings he’s witnessed.

all jokes aside, if klance doesn’t become canon i’m just….i’m gonna be really sad? there is SOMETHING there. there is chemistry and it’s obvious. they have so much potential, they could grow to have such a great, healthy relationship. it hurts me deeply knowing that if one of them were a girl, i wouldn’t even have to worry about this. god i just…i just want them to fall in love, in the sweetest way. it would be so important to so many people. it would be so important to me.

What if …

- Cinder was raised by Levana instead of being almost killed by her?

- Scarlet grew up on Luna rather than on Earth with her grandmother?

- Cress hadn’t been born a shell but inherited the gift from her parents?

- Winter never promised herself to not use her glamour but to serve her queen?

May I present:

Crown princess Selene Blackburn

Alpha Scarlet Benoit

Dr. Crescent Moon Darnel

Head Thaumaturge Winter Hayle

Reason 5439236 the HP movies irk me, particularly DH.

In the book, Hermione dances with precisely one person, Ron. They have a lovely time, and they are making strides in their relationship. It also serves to magnify the emotional impact of Ron’s leaving, as well as his return and redemption.

In the movie, Hermione dances with not one, but two people. Krum at the wedding (the scene was cut, but featured a jealous-looking Ron), and Harry in the tent. Basically, the exact opposite of what happens in the book. All this served to do was make Ron look like the bad guy (as always), lessen the emotional impact of his leaving on Hermione, and also hide the fact that Ron was really maturing and trying to change his relationship with Hermione from friendship to something more. The Harry/Hermione dance was so OOC for Harry as well (I dislike that scene with a passion).

Thanks for robbing us of actually seeing Ron and Hermione dancing together, which ACTUALLY happened. Instead, precious screen time was wasted on nonsense.

Just another example of the anti-Romione bias in the films (not to mention an overall lack of understanding of the characters and unnecessary changes to major plot points).

Don’t even get me started on Malfoy Manor. Or Voldemort’s death scene. Or the burning down of The Burrow. Or Harry & Ginny’s entire relationship. I’ll stop now.

anyone else kinda terrified you’ll never be able to hold a job in the future because of your mental illness

I think the main thing that Pisces struggle with is their tendency to select the most damaged partners, romantically. Oftentimes, they may romanticize or idealize a very broken individual and they could alter their perception of that person by viewing them in a poetic way; they are attracted to poetic tragedies. There is something about people who are lost in life that Pisces finds endlessly intriguing and beautiful, Pisces wants to be the one to guide those people along the way and to act as their guardian angel or their wise savior. Pisces have so much compassion in their hearts that they genuinely may not even see anything particularly wrong about damaged people. Pisces sees the potential in everyone and all they want to do is help and to show that they care. But this is exactly the kind of behavior that allows others to take advantage of Pisces’ kindness and gentleness. And Pisces don’t feel angry if they are mistreated; they just think that each person deserves chances and they understand how difficult it is to be broken inside. From an outsider’s perspective, though, we are easily able to recognize the delusions of Pisces, and their Neptunian energy is definitely apparent. I hope that, with the astrological knowledge that Pisces is aware of, they will begin to realize this pattern and maybe start thinking twice about the people they associate with, especially when it comes to romance. If a Pisces is aromantic, then they will exhibit this tendency with their friends. They will often choose to be acquainted with people who use them/manipulate them, but Pisces will see it as a call for help, and therefore they don’t know that it’s a problem. It’s a very difficult task for Pisces to not be so naive, but I hope that they will start becoming more skeptical.

This may also apply to you if you have a Pisces Venus, a Pisces Moon, Pisces in the 7th House, or a 12th House stellium (although it’s not only limited to these).

Character: Prince Adam (The Beast)

You stared down at your freshly cleaned palette, debating on if you should paint again so soon after spending a great deal of time scrubbing the long dried paint off the wood, even having to scratch off bits of crimson and mauve from the small crooks of the board with the plates of your nails. But nonetheless, it was your job to paint the various portraits and murals for the castle hallways and ballrooms.

You set up your easel in the center of the castle gardens, the large structure towering above you in all of it’s opulence and glory. Taking a moment to adjust your sun hat to rid of the blinding light, you placed a small workbench off to your side with all of your various shades of paints and brushes in a multitude of shapes and styles.

Taking a small step back you tilted your head in various angles to decipher how to go about painting the castle as to the Prince’s request. Once you found something you liked you immediately set upon your work, sketching out the bases and eventually getting lost in the motions as you so often did when the proper inspiration struck you.

You were so absorbed in the creation unfolding before you, you didn’t hear the sound of footsteps approaching you from behind. The person’s footsteps stopped when they were still a good bit away, but close enough to watch your craft.

It wasn’t until you placed your paintbrush down and opened a jar of deep blue paint that you noticed the fancy heeled shoes standing out in contrast to the grass. Your gaze slowly moved up and you came face to face with the Prince of the castle.

You about jumped four feet in the air upon seeing him, almost knocking over your worktable had it not been for your arms that quickly wrapped around it and halting it’s fall. “Y-Your Majesty!” You said in a brief moment of shock. “You’ll have to forgive me, I wasn’t expecting anyone to be out here so early in the day.”

He offered you a small smile and glanced at the various swatches of paint that lined the backs of your hands that still had an iron grip on the table. You noticed the odd look he gave you and immediately released your hold. “Is there something I can help you with, sire?”

Prince Adam shook his head as he peered over your shoulder to gaze upon the canvas. “This is the painting I asked of the castle is it not?”

You nodded your head silently, moving slightly so he could look at it more closely as you stepped back from him, arms behind your back as you awaited his inspection.

“I knew I had chosen you for a reason, this is some rather extraordinary work.” He said with a cheerful tone as he turned to you with a small smile.

Your hand went under your chin as your eyes went to his in surprise. “Do you really think so?” You asked sincerely, taking a step closer as you moved to his side.

This was the first compliment you had received from the young Prince since your employment. As a matter of fact, you hadn’t seem him much at all since your brief introduction on your first day as the court painter of the Royal household. Some of the staff explained that he was busy with remodels of some of the castle exterior and overall attempting to brush out a lot of tangles that had occurred within the management of the kingdom.

However, when you asked what had happened, they’d all smile and shrug their shoulders, telling you he had been away for a rather long time and things had gotten a little hectic within the castle walls.

“How could I not? Your style is really rather unique than the painters we’ve had in the castle before, it captures a lot more of it’s real essence.”

You bowed respectfully. “Thank you, sire.”

He shook his head and held out his arms in front of them. “There really isn’t a need for the formalities. You need only call me by my name.“

“As you wish, Prince Adam.”

Adam made made an attempt to say something to you, but stopped himself short.”It’s only just now occurred to me I don’t really now your name, and since you know mine it only seems fair to tell me.”

You gave him a minuscule smile before telling him what he wished to hear. “(Y/n), my name’s (Y/n).”

You had held out your hand with intentions for him to shake it, but he took it gently in own and kissed the back of it. “Well it is very nice to make your acquaintance, (Y/n).”

You laughed bashfully as you looked into his eyes. “Likewise.”

A/n: I have zero clue where this would go in terms of timeline,although it does take place after the curse has been broken but let’s just say it’s an alternative end where Belle opts to travel Europe after the curse instead. (lame i know but bare with me here, it’s all i got at the moment.)

After years of seeing references to the Aaron Ehasz shipping Zutara, I finally set out to find out more about this, and all of the old feels are back. So, so much wasted potential. Such a great, compelling story that could have been told–that never will be told. And not just the Zuko and Katara stuff. Iroh backstory? Toph working on her issues with her parents? Aang grappling with the consequences of energybending? Ty Lee’s airbending decent being relevant? Sign me up!

I just…ergghhhh! I am pretty sure I will forever be in mourning for Ehasz’s Book Four.

i would have really liked if the gg revival maybe explained or made more overt (if, indeed, it was intentional in the first place) that part of rory falling apart was from losing richard

obviously all the gilmores were super invested in rory’s future and her potential, but what made rory and richard unexpectedly click was that they just seemed to be kindred spirits in that i-want-to-travel-the-world-and-read-great-books-and-achieve-amazing-things way. richard had so much faith in rory that it was almost heartbreaking.

and i could totally see her falling apart at the loss of him, and having this heavy guilt that he had never gotten to see her reach her full potential because she didn’t achieve it in time, and that causing her to struggle and spiral downward even more.

i would have really liked to see that. i think it would have lent a real sense of emotional resonance to what rory was going through, in a way that would have felt like it really had its roots in the original series and the really important relationship she had with her grandpa.

watching Fantastic beast and where to find them

me: ok pls dont kill credence, he needs help and support after a lifetime of abuse.

*credence gets killed*

me: *internal screaming* , ok…. ok at least dont kill of percival graves, he is such a interesting character that has a lot of potential, he could be an anti hero of sorts, not with the good guys but not with grindlewald either.

*turns into johhny depp*

me: FUCKKKKKKKK!!!!

Kara could’ve had an actual storyline and more development, and Mon-El could’ve had character development from a misogynistic fratboy to a good friend and an actual hero/sidekick (and Winn’s bf). But instead the writers decided that it’s better to downgrade their main character to a babysitter and love interest for a random boy who doesn’t treat her well.

Lady Smallwood as a Rosamund Mary Mirror:

I know this theory has been floated before but I thought it would be helpful to put together a more comprehensive list of the parallels between Lady Smallwood and Mary. This could potentially help explain why Lady Smallwood, a minor character invented for this adaptation, has been given so much screen time.

  • They wear the same perfume
  • They are frequently confused for one another (when Sherlock thinks it’s Lady Smallwood in Magnussen’s office, when Ajay thinks that “the English woman” is Mary but then Sherlock thinks it’s actually Lady Smallwood)
  • They are both short and blonde and physically pretty similar in appearance
  • They are both blackmailed by Magnussen
  • They both have a cheating spouse (Lord Smallwood and his former lover, John and the bus lady)
  • They both have a daughter (Lady Smallwood has an unnamed daughter according to the Sherlock wikia)
  • We don’t know either of their names for certain (Elizabeth vs Alicia, Rosamund vs Mary)
  • They were both involved in AGRA and the Tbilisi incident
  • Lady Smallwood works with Mycroft and Mary was shown to be working for Mycroft in TAB

I also want to put down a few points that aren’t explicit parallels but are instead theories on Mary’s motivations and plans based on information we have about Lady Smallwood.

  • Lady Smallwood’s husband committed suicide when his affair was revealed - I believe Mary’s plan is to drive John to suicide (or at least to risk his life) because of the guilt he feels over his “affair”
  • Lady Smallwood was instrumental in Sherlock’s exile - Mary tried to “exile” Sherlock permanently (by killing him)
  • Lady Smallwood is also instrumental in editing the footage of Magnussen’s death - I believe Mary is using td-12 on John and Sherlock to “corrupt their memories” and make them believe her version of events

sarahmgellar: “20 years ago today, I had the greatest privilege to bring Buffy to your tv screens for the first time. It was a long and challenging road to get there. First the movie, then a passed over pilot presentation, and eventually a mid season time slot on a little known network. That first season, we liked to think of ourselves as the little show that could. While we knew the potential, I don’t think any of us saw the lasting impact our show would have. As an actor, you wish for that one role where you can leave your mark and forever be remembered, with Buffy I got so much more. She’s a feminist challenge to gender hierarchy. Buffy may have been the Chosen One, but I was the lucky one. Thank you to Gail Berman for always believing there was a show in that movie. Thank you to Joss Whedon, for trusting me to give life to one of the greatest female characters ever created. Thank you to David, for always being my Angel. Thank you to James for understanding that while Buffy and Spike may have been love/hate, I have nothing but love for you. Alyson, as any woman knows, you are nothing without the love and support of great female friends, so thank you for being that. Michelle, you will always hold a key to my heart. Thank you to all the incredible actors for seven seasons of amazing performances. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the incredible crew that worked tirelessly (and also really tired) to bring this show to life. And lastly, but most importantly thank you to all of you, the fans. We made this show for you, and your unwavering support has kept this show going long past our seven years. You are everything. And always remember…“if the apocalypse comes, beep me” #buffyslays20

Nino Lahiffe

I just have to say that Nino is such an amazing character that has the potential to be developed so much. He could have so much sides to him and I honestly love that in many fan fics he gets much more development. I’ve seen him portrayed as a panicky and worrisome boy who’s terrible with pressure and girls, as a really good emotional support and very grounded boy, as a pretty chill and fun loving guy who really cares for his friends, as a broken and helpless bystander to all the conflict around him, as a ‘badboy’ and teasing friend who is very observant yet somewhat oblivious, as a dense and somewhat self-loathing guy and many more.
It’s just so amazing.
Thank you to all the writers, artists, and really the whole fandom and especially Thomas Astruc and his team for making and developing Nino.
I especially love the portrayals of @thelastpilot and @marshmallohno

Gohan is better as a Scholar

I am going to upset some people today. I loved Gohan during the Majin Buu arc, having his Ultimate Potential Unlocked so he could go toe to toe with Super Buu, he was truly epic. 

Although it sucks to see someone who in base form rivaled Goku’s strength fall so much in power, I dont really mind Gohan being the Scholarly Type. Gohan never wanted to be the Warrior that his father and Vegeta were. Before you Kamehameha me, just listen. 

Gohan from the beginning was pushed to academics by his mother. Yes, but he also showed CONSIDERABLE talent in academics from a young age. Much of that was being pushed, sure. 

Gohan never fought because he wanted to. 

In the Saiyan Saga he was Kidnapped (Twice). He was then forced by Piccolo to train to fight against Vegeta and Nappa. Once Piccolo died, Gohan decided to go to Namek with Bulma and Krillin, it was to pay back a debt to Piccolo.

During the Frieza Saga, Gohan was practically a cornered rat. He was forced into situation after situation where he would be forced to fight in order to survive.

When the Androids and Cell appeared, Gohan again had to set down what he wanted in order to make the world safe. Goku even told Gohan to defeat Cell so that he could become a Scholar. Goku knew his son had no desire to fight, despite his incredible ability to do so. 

After Cell was defeated, Gohan went to school, tried to become a normal “Human” child. It was here we begin to see Gohan at his happiest, when he is allowed to focus on his dreams. 

When Majin Buu came onto the scene, Gohan stepped up ONCE AGAIN to try to make it safe. 

In Dragonball Super, Gohan settled down to have a family of his own. Still finding himself having to step up to fight, but this time it was far beyond what he could have expected and he easily lost against the God of Destruction. 

With a loss like this, it is no wonder he did not train at all after the BOG. In fact, when Frieza appeared we see he has even lost his Gi. Afterwards he begins again to train with Piccolo, if only to keep his family safe. 

When the tournament happened between Universes 6 and 7, Gohan missed due to having an Academic Conference, despite his having been training with Piccolo.

By the time that the Future Trunks / Goku Black arc rolled around, Gohan is seen trying to balance his family and his studies. Trunks marvels at Gohan, unaware that Gohan could make a face that happy. Trunks leaves Gohan and his family out of the terrors that are plaguing his future, it isn’t until much later that Gohan finds out what has happened. Even then it is too late for him to help. 

In GT we see him as the Professor. Someone who has achieved what he wished. We see the happiness that this brings him, we also see him step up and fight when he is needed. 

All of this also makes sense if you take into consideration the Dragonball Online Lore:

After the demise of his father, Gohan reflects on the power he wields and so he devoted himself to scholarly research on the source of that strength, ki. Gohan begins researching the martial arts of the past, organizing them in his book Groundbreaking Science in Age 804. The book quietly gains popularity and one of the articles, “Katchin Can Be Cut!”, has an immense influence in the birth of the Swordsman class, as it leads to the creation of Trunks and Goten’s Kikoukenjutsu Sword School in the year following the book’s release. It also leads to Krillin and Tien Shinhan starting up their own training schools in Age 821, the New Turtle School and the New Crane School respectively. As a result, by Age 1000, many Earthlings have taken up advance martial arts and understand ki control. (FROM the Wikia)


If Gohan is really to make this large a contribution to the World of Dragonball, I see no problem in his wishing to be a scholar. Arguably this accomplishment above all others did more for the world than the accomplishments that others in the series have made.

Kwami Swap AU gone dark - Part 1, Origins
Part 1 (you are here!), Part 2

I have to warn you, this is gonna be a hella long post. I’m sorry.

So, I can’t believe how long it took me but I finally realized why I don’t particularly enjoy how the Kwami swap AU is usually portrayed. Or better, I do enjoy it, but in a highly specific setting: the “Akuma somehow gets them to swap powers" one. That, I love. It has so much comedic and character insight potential, how could I not love it? Nothing like getting to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes to better understand them, right? No, what perplexed me was the other kind of Kwami Swap. The “they get the opposite Miraculous from the get go”.

So far, I’ve only seen this AU played out as something fluffy, but I’m talking past the cutesy idea of seeing our heroes in each other’s suits and roles.What could the actual implications of such an idea be, put realistically (as much as you can when talking about a fictional work) into the show’s canon? Because to me that would be a proper nightmare on so many levels that it’s actually kind of interesting. And this, really, is the whole point of this post. Brace yourself, it gets depressing.

I keep thinking about a modern Animorphs AU and I’m so in love with it
It honestly has so much fun potential and I could go on forever about it, but here are just a few headcanons I have:

Jake

  • He just doesn’t Get social media
  • Marco’s always telling him to update his profiles more, but he never does
  • Only really goes on facebook and the occasional forum or chatroom
  • Most of his posts are Marco tagging him in things
  • Him and Tom would play video games a lot together, and Jake still tries to get him to play more
  • Jake usually just resorts to going to Marco’s house
  • Probably has a very dad-like phone case for his smartphone
  • Marco and Rachel make fun of him for it
  • Likes really outdated memes (Marco groans in the distance)
  • Someone please help this child

Rachel

  • Gets in trouble for wearing crop tops at school
  • Has an aesthetic blog on tumblr
  • Lives on Instagram and pintrest
  • Her room looks like something straight off of pintrest
  • Watches so many beauty vloggers on youtube
  • Secretly wants to start her own beauty channel, but knows that she can’t being an animorph
  • Sends Cassie beauty and fashion hacks and tutorials all the time with the hope that she’ll get into it
  • It doesn’t, but she still does it

Tobias

  • Spends a majority of his life online
  • Stays up until 3am on school nights going through reddit
  • The pirate KING
  • Has folders filled with illegally downloaded music and movies and anime
  • As a hawk, one of the animorphs brings him a tablet to use in the forest
  • He shows Ax anime
  • This was a bad idea
  • Everyone thinks he’s really tech savvy but mostly he’s just really good at googling things

Marco

  • He owns so many video games and different consoles oh my god
  • He always invites Jake over to play
  • Spends his nights trolling online
  • This boy is the absolute meme king (But let’s face it, that’s not even a headcanon. We all know this.)
  • He always sends Jake memes and funny posts he finds
  • Just take this moment to imagine Marco sending Jake cursed images or out of context gifs and saying “this is you”
  • Posts selfies c o n s t a n t l y
  • Literally all of his selfies have all these filters and he does all the stereotypical douche poses
  • Probably posts at least one selfie a day and brags when it gets liked
  • Jake always likes out of pity
  • Tries to grow his hair out for a man bun because the ladies will love it
  • Rachel tells him this is not the case. He ignores her

Cassie

  • She’s had the same smartphone for the longest time
  • Honestly the only reason she has a smartphone is because Rachel finally convinced her to join modern life
  • The screen is incredibly cracked because she keeps dropping it while working with the animals
  • Like Jake, she doesn’t really get social media, either
  • She follows so many animal pages on facebook though
  • She just doesn’t get internet humor
  • Sometimes she thinks she gets it, but she never does
  • Rachel and Marco die a little bit on the inside every time Cassie brings up something she found online because it’s always old and outdated jokes and memes
  • Jake always laughs though
  • Accidentally liked an old picture of Jake once
  • She texted Rachel frantically asking her what to do
  • Rachel was dying
  • Honestly Jake probably didn’t even notice. He was just happy Cassie liked one of his pictures

Ax

  • Marco showed him a meme once. He had no idea what the point of it was, but now he won’t stop trying to reference memes. Marco regrets his decision. Tobias tries to help him understand memes more. It’s a lost cause. Ax now brings up memes at the worst possible times.
  • Remember how I said Tobias showed him anime. Ax loves anime.
  • He ends up getting into quite a few of them and sits in the forest draining the battery of their electronics
  • He doesn’t even need subtitles because of his translator chip
  • Tobias gets frustrated because every time a new episode of the anime they’re watching comes out, Ax watches it before him and is really bad with spoilers
  • Scoffs at touch screens (“You need to use a screen to touch? A hologram would be much easier.”)
  • Marco insists on setting up a facebook profile for Ax’s human morph because he thinks not having a facebook in modern day might make controllers suspect him
  • Now imagine Marco helping Ax take selfies for his new profile
  • Words cannot even begin to describe that shipwreck
  • The other animorphs cannot stop laughing at how ridiculous his pictures are
