just about sums up my feelings

in-our-dreams  asked:

What do you think about Chaol? Do you like him?

I’m on the fence about Chaol. I don’t HATE him. But I don’t LOVE him. Obviously he needs to get rid of his prejudice against Faes and witches and all magical beings. And there’s just something about his honor, it gets in the way. There’s this amazing post on it, and it sucks that I can’t find it because it really sums up my feelings about him. 

“You can’t pick and choose what parts of her to love” Really just says everything. Chaol wants to pick Aelin apart and choose whatever fancies him and whatever doesn’t he doesnt want to be there. That’s not how it works. 

I only just barely like Chaol because he’s a reminder of all the humans the characters are working so hard to save. I think a sprinkle of human is good for the soul. Chaol is like a sprinkle of salt on a wound, because he’s really salty.  

I am screaming rn
I just watched the dinosaur cry episode and-
“can we just talk about this?”
“sportacus, can we just sit down and talk?”
“I didn’t mean to scare you.”
“I’m sorry.”
Robbie says all of this in the episode when he mistakenly thinks he scared sportacus and I’m just- this just fuels my sportarobbie shipping even more.
He doesn’t even hate him that much, he just wants everyone to be lazy, that’s it.
You two just make a fuckin peace treaty and allow kids to go outside, exercise and play, while also eating occasional sweets, junk food and over sleeping. Then you can both get on and be gay together.

GET TO KNOW ME: [2/20] TV shows → Criminal Minds
‘Sometimes, there are no words, no clever quotes, to neatly sum up what’s happened that day. Sometimes, you do everything right, everything exactly right, and still you feel like you failed. Did it need to end that way? Could something have been done to prevent the tragedy in the first place? What about my team? How many more times will they be able to look into the abyss, how many times before they won’t ever recover the pieces of themselves that this job takes? Sometimes, there are no words, no clever quotes, to neatly sum up what’s happened that day. Sometimes, the day just ends.’

My favorite quote from Kubo was what he says near the very end, “this was a happy story. But it certainly could have been a lot happier.”
I just love that. It sums up how he feels about everything, despite the memories he now has and the stories he can share, he still has that grief and sorrow but he isn’t going to let it hold him down.
It also sums up the movie itself, showing that, yes, it’s a story about death, but it’s also just as much about life.
And that’s a quote that I would love to be able to use in one of my own stories; something that can sum up the main character’s thoughts on everything, that can sum up the whole story in a simple line, imply that there’s more to this than you may have previously thought, and I absolutely love that so much. It’s so powerful and perfect.
I love it.

I fall in love with people’s minds. I fall in love with thoughts and ideas and words.  That’s how I fall in love with people. That’s how I fall in love.

Can I talk about one line I especially appreciate in Undertale?

On it’s own, this line is a huge wham line of feelings on its own. It’s one of the pinnacles of the Pacifist run. It’s a single sentence basically summing up the morals used through said run, and it’s pretty heavy. But it also has a personal meaning to me, and I’d like to talk about the way the lowercase ‘love’ is used. 

Throughout the game of Undertale there is no direct romance involving Frisk. (They’re a child, first of all, and that’s just not the focus of the game in general), yet, this term is used.

‘Love’. In media you never really hear that outside of sexual and/or romantic relationships. You only hear the term ‘love’ when kisses or romantic partners are being described. And as an Aromantic it’s almost alienating to me. You can’t ‘love’ your friends in media. You’re ‘best friends’. Or you ‘Care about each other’. And in familial relationships only young children tend to say they ‘love’ each other. It’s never used like that. It’s as if media treats those two types of love as somehow less real. 

But they’re not. They’re just as, if not more, important as romantic ‘love’. And frankly I love that this one line throws that idea down the drain. 

Because this is love

This is love

This is love

This is love

This is love

This is love

And this is love

And Undertale isn’t afraid to admit that.

Ughhhh I have so much to say about this scene and how close to FLCL this whole show is, but ultimately anything I could possibly try to put into words (because how do you write down a feeling like this?) can be summed up in these two frames. 

The nonsense, the symbolism, the hardships both Kokona and Takkun face regarding the lack of an identity in a world that is forcing them to grow up – and then Papika. She might not have a yellow Vespa, but she’s got a flying hoverboard (I really hope it’s not lost forever) and that freedom of spirit that’s so characteristic. 

Takkun fell in love with Haruko by the end of this absurd journey and hell, Kokona is falling too.

Naruto 💕

A long long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I posted an ask meme and then never bloody answered the asks…

003 | Give me a character & I will tell you
How I feel about this character: My two favourite tags I use for Naruto content are “idiotic ball of sunshine” and “thank you for loving our idiot son” and I think they about sum it up…
All the people I ship romantically with this character: Naruto is a fucking difficult character to ship in practice and I’ll tell you why, it’s because FFnet is clogged with Naruto/harem fics, which I have no interest in. You search Naruto/almost any character and it’s just harems, harems as far as the eye can see, and also just a lot of dreck, generally??? Like damn.  “Strong!Smart!Grey!Godlike!Sharingan!Mokuton!Naruto”. GTFO. “Some uninteresting overpowered asshole with the same name and general appearance as Naruto”, more like. Like, I can mayyyyyybe understand the people who were writing fic for Naruto back in 2006 giving him power upgrades, but I am seriously side-eyeing anyone who read/watched the Naruto vs. Kaguya fight and said “You know what’s wrong with this series? Naruto isn’t powerful enough.”

AO3 is better but not that much better because there you have the problem that Naruto, as the main character, is in almost every fic??? And because you can tag ALL THE THINGS in Ao3 without being able to specify who the main character or main pairing is, the signal to noise ratio is again enormous.
My non-romantic OTP for this character: I have nothing against NaruSaku as a romantic ship but I just looooove them as friends so much. LOOOOVE them. Like I am down for about 1000% more depictions of heterosexually attracted men and women being extremely close friends in media. (I hope I don’t get any Tumblr police coming after me for that phrasing, I’m not sure how to put it succinctly, but basically two people who COULD be romantically or sexually attracted to each other, or even were attracted or in a relationship at one time, but now they’re totally platonic and would literally die for each other and they have the best time when they hang out which is all the time???? And nobody is jealous and people trust their partners if they’re in relationships???? MORE OF THAT. PLEASE. I AM SO WEAK FOR IT.
My unpopular opinion about this character: *takes a deep breath* I LIKE NARUTO’S SHORT HAIR OKAY

One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: Hahahaha how much time do you have?

If I have to pick just one, I would have liked to have seen Naruto end the Hyuuga house branch slavery system.
My OTP: It’s NaruHina.

NaruHina shipper who hates the canon ending? It’s more likely than you think.

Basically my problems with the canon ending have almost nothing to do with who’s getting down to sexy town.

I like NaruHina because I think Naruto and Hinata have compatible personalities, are aesthetically gorgeous together, have the capacity for deep mutual understanding, and the potential for real growth and for forming a beautiful family together. I am also weak for the notion that MinaKushi, while well-meaning, missed in their recommendations to “find a girl like your mother” that Naruto really needed to find someone like Minato, not like Kushina. Hinata isn’t nearly on Minato’s level in Shippuden in terms of being basically the perfect human being, but I headcanon that, unusually for the Naruto world, Minato had… now stop me if this is unrealistic… supportive, stable, loving, validating parents. Hinata, with Repression McDouche for a dad, growing up in the Hyuuga, was raised in possibly the worst environment for someone of her temperament. Naruto also isn’t exactly Kushina but they’re a lot closer because Kushina underwent some similar experiences of loss, exclusion, etc. I do think that in Shippuden NaruHina was on the right path.

As far as ships depicted in the canon ending go, I don’t think NaruHina is depicted as all that dysfunctional tbh. Basically if I had to rate the ship solely based on how it’s depicted in canon post-699 I’d probably still give it a 7/10. I don’t like the “strangled by the red string” aspects of The Last, the retconning of Naruto’s feelings for Sakura (you can, in fact, have genuine attraction to more than one person, even at the same time, scandalous!) and the whole plot with the “alien kidnaps ur gurl” and “do not destroy the moon” aspects were silly. I don’t like how canon emphasizes the domestic side of all the female characters in 700, but I think becoming a homemaker is 100% a valid choice and in the case of Hinata, even a potentially rebellious one. Stay with me for a second, I’m acknowledging that the canon ending doesn’t have a rebellious bone in its mouldering corpse, but think of how Hinata was raised, the expectations she was smothered with and how she was constantly told that not being a good ninja meant she was worthless, and imagine her, as an adult, saying to her father and the main house, “You know, I am not interested in being a Hyuuga as you define it. In fact, now that the world is basically peaceful, I am not interested in being a ninja at all. I’m getting married and I’m going to have a baby and stay home with the baby. I’m going to scrub the toilet, I’m going to cook dinner, I’m going to rake leaves, I’m going to vacuum–all those servile tasks that you force the branch house to do for you. I’m going to knit. Do you know I really, really enjoy knitting? I made this sweater and I feel very proud of it and I like it and I like the way I look in it. See you never.”

My OT3: I don’t really have OT3 ships but I’ve seen some enjoyable NaruSakuSasu. Certainly as a BroT3 they have massive potential that’s massively missed in canon. Dark anime, show me the universe where Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura have a scene where they are all adults and spend time together with each one happy to be with both of the others.

It feels uninspired to say, that I love Falsettos. But here I am prepped to write a paragraph that basically can be summed up to “I love the 2016 Falsettos revival.” It’s hard for me to uh describe my feelings on anything. I’ll try my best. Falsettos makes me feel …. less alone in a way. And even… more whole as a person having it in my life. I love it. The amazing cast. Every wonderful song. I can’t express how exactly I feel about Falsettos. So I’ll just leave it at this; I love the 2016 Falsettos revival.

I have a lot of feelings about the latest chapter of “Flowey is Not a Good Life Coach” and this sums up most of them

Bonus ending!

anonymous asked:

hi sophia. have you ever posted anything general about your objections to lesswrong culture? like a comprehensive post? also, have you read neoreaction: a basilisk and if so do how do you feel about its characterization of lesswrongers

in my response to this ask [link] i go into some detail, but to sum it up: they exemplify everything bad about liberalism. fanatical faith in the free market? they got that. going out of their way to defend nazis? you betcha. pedophilia apologism? yep. 

outside of the stuff directly relating to their liberalism, there’s also the smug arrogance, the non-stop hypocrisy, and the way they consistently throw a tantrum and play the victim when they lose a debate instead of just gracefully taking the fucking L.

edit: oh, also i haven’t read Neoreaction: A Basilisk

TUMBLR, We Need To Talk.

You’ve been placing ads on people’s blogs. I just found out about it.

My initial reaction can be summed up in this:

SO, Let Me Make This Perfectly Clear:

MY BLOG - when I’m not getting any of the revenue for myself - Is NOT a place for you to put your ads on!!!! Especially without asking for permission!

I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS! I did not consent to this!!!

Either give me a piece or take them off.

Thank you very much.

If you feel the same, feel absolutely free to reblog

EDIT:  When I posted this, I wasn’t aware opting out was even an option - but still!

It sucks they didn’t inform the users about this properly beforehand, and that one has to opt out MANUALLY - for each individual blog no less - and let alone that we can gain no revenue of them yet, and many likely never even will.

Tumblr, kindly disable the ads and bring them back AFTER you have all the details figured out on this - AND NO SOONER.

anonymous asked:

How do you feel about SPN being renewed for another season?

meh.

that basically sums it up. can’t really muster up any stronger feelings either way. i saw that one coming from a mile away because the cw loves their dead horse. spn hasn’t been overly horrible over the past like season and a half-ish and they did have a couple episodes that had some pretty good ratings and also, like i said, they love their dead horse that spits out money when you hit it with a stick. at this point, i’m just resigned to my fate of being 97 years old and still watching spn out of misplaced loyalty.

i’m more annoyed with the fandom’s civil wars over the renewal than the actual renewal at this point. it happens every year. if people are bitter, let them be bitter and don’t make passive aggressive posts shaming them for not jumping up and down for joy. if people are happy, let them be happy and do not insult their intelligence because they enjoy a show you don’t. it’s cool if you don’t personally understand why someone would be happy or why someone would be bitter. but all you’re doing by making call out posts is making yourself look like a giant, gaping asshole. you know?

i mean, listen, i’m disappointed and bitter as hell that arrow isn’t cancelled and i do not personally understand why anyone would be happy about the renewal but if there are people who are happy then i’m glad they’re happy and they should hang onto that. it’s not for me to understand. it’s their emotions. they own them. there is nothing wrong with them. i don’t understand what’s so hard to grasp about the concept of other people having emotions.
