it's like the trees are talking

pidge: keith i have a gay problem and need the help of a gay who is more experienced

keith: ok. what is it?

pidge: i like this girl but there’s no way she likes me back and i dunno what to do about it

keith: nothing. absolutely nothing. you do nothing, and then you do your best to ignore it but it’s just eating at you and it’s so hard to pretend it’s not there so then you watch ten thousand heteronormative hallmark movies but eventually you start getting daydreams about how great your life would be if you actually were dating and how much fun you’d have doing the cheesiest coupley stuff and you aren’t even paying attention to the hallmark movies anymore they’re just lights and sounds in the background of your daydreams but we’re in space so you don’t even have the hallmark movies so you just go straight to the daydreams and you get this idea in your head that if you two date you’ll finally be a happy functional person and you won’t have any more problems ever and you know that’s not true but you still wanna believe it anyway and now the crush is getting bigger and bigger and you’re even more of a mess and you talk to your friend about it since he says he’s always there if you need someone to listen so you think that’ll help a little bit but it turns out it doesn’t because your friend is an asshole and says “well why don’t you just tell him?” but if i could tell him then this wouldn’t. be a problem, shiro!

keith: (breathing heavily)

pidge:

pidge:

pidge: actually i think i’m gonna go to lance

keith: …good plan.

All these people saying “OMG have you listened to that song stressed out by 21 pilots???”

“Bitch, first øff its twenty øne piløts, nøt the number, write that shit øut. Secønd, have yøu listened tø Fake Fan by Every Twenty Øne Piløts Fan?”

“Of course, that song is my jam!”

Then there’s me with a

*facepalm*

“Fucking bandwagøners, listen tø anything that isn’t øn Blurryface and then cøme back tø talk business.”

people who have only ever played overwatch complaining about how bad blizzard’s writing is, like, generally and as a company are fake and posers and don’t know what real blizzard entertainment related suffering is. until u have had to deal with 25 years of malfurion stormrage talking at you about tree sex you just cant really ‘get’ it. this is warcraft fan erasure at its most flagrant and honestly i wont stand for it

massivegrape  asked:

omg Lori is definitely the coolest but I wanna know more about that cutie Vaamal! <3

Vaamal past Pilot of the Green Lion

Is the tallest and fastest in the squad. Pretty chill for her species having long life spans.

species design a mix of owl/gorilla/sloth. known as one of the most intelligent species. Her home planet is covered in extremely huge thick forests (like 70%). So imagine huge skyscrapers buts as trees, which are also used as buildings. The branches and leaves are so vast and thick, that its mostly dark all the time below (gets darker to pitch black as you get closer the ground).

High intelligence, strong curiosity and adventurous, if anyone suggests to check out a mystery, she’s the first to volunteer.

also loves her shorter teammates

just the

most intelligent

majestic

creature

keith: hunk is right

hunk, immediately pulling keith down into a kiss: man i love hearing that

Someone please talk to me about the Romeo X Juliet anime

This. Fucking. Anime. With its clever as shit Shakespeare references, and puppy dog Romeo, and sexy anime boy Tybalt, and DRAGON STEEDS. 

And Juliet. Juliet Princess Capulet of my heart.

Dressing up and being a damn superhero

Raising a rebellion to help the common people.

Being a god damn warrior princess in incredibly practical and historically accurate-ish armor. (Historically accurate-ish non-objectifying armor. In an anime that has magic trees and dragon horses. These are my priorities.) 


Like…Romeo and Juliet is only a so-so play for me, honestly. Because Romeo and Juliet hardly know each other, and they aren’t well developed outside of their instant rush romance, and they have no real responsibilities so like- just run the fuck away with each other. Don’t try and play dead, this is a bad plan.

And this anime. THIS ANIME just takes all those complaints and sets them on fire and is like “Epic romance and political intrigue and weird magic Miyazaki trees and a rebellion FOR THE PEOPLE with Juliet Princess of MY HEART at the helm and just for fun, how many Shakespeare references can you find?” 

SOMEONE TALK TO ME ABOUT THIS ANIME. 

Thank you.

i was playing animal crossing with @horrifichymns and this happened

,,except it was an axe

"ABC's Thursday collapse is pretty stunning. Last night, among A18-49, it finished in last place from 9-11 and second place from 8-9. A year ago? First place 9-11 p.m., and second place from 8-9."

You bite the hand that feeds you (the viewers) you get kicked in the ratings teeth in return, ABC.

A discussion among one blogger that tries to favor SR in every possible way (TVmoJoe), another one that likes her but usually can see the forest for the trees (Jarett Wieselman) and Michael Ausiello followed.

“@MichaelAusiello You say Notorious, I say Interchangeable ABC Drama Flop” Which is the truth. All the new shows are failing, AND the old ones are failing, too. And that’s the network’s fault.

And then IMAGINE ThAT; they started talking about “viewer erosion” for HTGAWM. LMAO! That show had HALF the viewers it had at the beginning, in s1 already. We kept saying here how its ratings were failing badly, and no one listened. It’s NUMBERS so um, one looks and tells the truth. But no. They kept trying to kiss the showrunner’s ass and they kept trying to sell it as a hit when IT WAS NOT. Last season HTGAWM had ABYSMAL ratings, just like Scandal did. So the conclusion on it, from Jarett Wieselman, was:

“@JarettSays @TVMoJoe scandal has had major viewer erosion too & not likely that terrible finale, long hiatus & Election storyline will help”

You don’t say?

What Kind of Times Are These

by Adrienne Rich

There’s a place between two stands of trees where the grass grows uphill
and the old revolutionary road breaks off into shadows
near a meeting-house abandoned by the persecuted
who disappeared into those shadows.

I’ve walked there picking mushrooms at the edge of dread, but don’t be fooled
this isn’t a Russian poem, this is not somewhere else but here,
our country moving closer to its own truth and dread,
its own ways of making people disappear.

I won’t tell you where the place is, the dark mesh of the woods
meeting the unmarked strip of light—
ghost-ridden crossroads, leafmold paradise:
I know already who wants to buy it, sell it, make it disappear.

And I won’t tell you where it is, so why do I tell you
anything? Because you still listen, because in times like these
to have you listen at all, it’s necessary
to talk about trees.

Mandalorian art (and Klimt)

As an art student and Star Wars fan, I like this mix so much. 

The picture in the first picture its based in Klimt art. (inversed colors, spirals and squares) 

Klimt art: “Tree of life”  “The Kiss”

I’m doing an art serie in a youtube Channel with my boyfriend (in spanish) so I’ll talk more about art onf the Universe of Star Wars ^^ (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdTj7XMz3zG1Zksf6aunfpA)

it’s apple tree yard. 

  • culverton never bothered looking for the fourth one bc it was hidden someplace he’d never suspect bc sherlock couldn’t possibly have planned that far ahead. 
  • ppl won’t bother looking for the fourth ep bc there’s no way a whole show could be a plant to hide the real ep.
  • its imdb page is strangely bare, as is its marketing.
  • the plot is Suspiciously reminiscent of bbc sherlock.
  • the main char’s last name is carmichael, eg lady carmichael, a john mirror. synopsis indicates she is a john analogue.
  • her actress’ surname is watson and she has talked abt how your sexuality “blossoms” in middle age and ppl don’t pay enough attention to that.
  • the sherlock analogue is played by a dude called ben. 

like um not to be a conspiracy theorist but apple tree yard is the cane is the key is the secret fourth episode. i still don’t know why they thought a secret fourth ep was a good idea but This Is It

okay I know I’ve been talking about breath of the wild a lot but like listen. it’s always a little unfair to Link that he gets saddled with the task of saving hyrule, but in previous installments like. At least he has some semblance of a family? In ocarina he has saria and the great deku tree, wind waker he has his grandma and sister, twilight princess he has the residents of ordon who all seem very fond of him, skyward sword he has Zelda and the other students at the knight academy, so on and so forth.

but in breath of the wild not only is practically everyone he cares about dead, but he doesn’t even remember any of them. We as the player are familiar with hyrule and happy to see it again, but Link? He wakes up one day, naked and alone with no memories and is told that it’s his duty to save this land that he has no attachment to, and that everyone else who tried before died doing so. And on top of that, he’s on a time limit! As soon as he wakes up he’s sent on a mission to free the divine beasts and defeat Ganon and he doesn’t know how long itll be until it’s too late. That boy is so damn stressed okay just. Let him rest give him some hot chocolate. Give him a massage. A puppy to hold. Let him rest LET HIM REST

shiro and pidge constantly denying that they have crushes on each other despite it being SUPER obvious to the rest of the paladins is my favorite thing in the world holy sHIT

Apples in Magic

Apples are one of the most common symbols in magic. In folklore and mythology, magical figures have been associated with apples for millennia. 

However, when researching the magical uses of apples, the list is surprisingly short. You’ll get something along the lines of “good for love magic, lust magic, and healing spells”. 
All are excellent uses for the wood, fruit, and leaves of the apple tree. However, the other half of the information is forgotten. 
Because of its heavy association with witches and magic, we can deduce that the apple itself will amplify almost any magical working. It’s like a magical battery. A wand of apple would do well in amping up the spells put out of it.
Apples are also heavily associated with death in some cultures, so they could be used to good effect in necromantic magic. An offering of apples seems like a nice way to get the dead to talk. 
Not only are apples associated with the dead, but the fae and spirits in general. Apples can be used as a sort of magical key, either opening doors, or locking them up. 
Apples will also store curses quite nicely. This I found out in a particularly interesting, and insidious, experiment. It makes sense given the fairytales about witches and apples. The evil witch either enchants the apple or poisons it. Either way, that apple then carries something sinister inside of it, waiting to jump out at first bite.
And of course, we can never forget about Eden. The Bible never states, to my knowledge, that the fruit eaten was an apple. Many people very vehemently assert that it was an apple, and others strongly oppose in saying that it was not. Whether you believe that it was or not, or even if you believe the story of Adam and Eve at all, the apple has acquired the power of that symbol. All knowledge which was forbade, including magical knowledge, was stored in the fruit. 

Feel free to pull your ideas from folklore and mythology. The magical uses of herbs, plants, and fruit are not shackled to the short list given when looking through a book or googling.
