companions of inquisitor frisk! in the order of mages, rogues, and warriors :D

frisk themselves is a rogue, although if they can, they use their stealth abilities to avoid/flee from battles lol

tbh i did this crossover to draw ut characters in dai clothes, but actually drawing the armor… it was fun but just lay me down to rest……

Re-Watching AToTS and...

I was re-watching A Tale of Two Stans, and I got to this scene, that upon first (second, third, okay and fourth) left me heartbroken. You know the one:

However, after my recent re-watch, I noticed that my kneejerk reaction to this scene had shifted from “Oh, no!” to you “Yes. This is painful, but necessary!”

Like, I’ve suddenly realized what an empowering, important character growth moment this was for Stan.

His brother has just rejected him again. Has arguably given him an eviction notice from not only the Shack but also Stanford’s life. We’ve seen this happen before. It could almost be considered a parallel to this scene from the exact same episode:

But instead of spending the next decade trying to prove his worth as a family member or try to get back into Ford’s good graces, what does Stan do here?

He accepts the rejection. Sadly and regrettably, of course, since Stan obviously wanted to make up with his brother. But here’s the thing: This moment shows that he does not rely on that reconciliation for happiness. And then you have this line:

Stan: “You stay away from the kids; I don’t want them in danger. ‘Cause as far as I’m concerned, they’re the only family I have left.”

I don’t think this is so much Stan not considering Ford his brother anymore, but the narrative asserting that what Stan and Ford have between them now is not a functioning family unit. And Stan knows this because he’s spent the summer with Dipper and Mabel.

In this very same episode, you have Stan revealing all his lies and secrets, and the kids forgive him. They forgive him, and still love him, because forgiveness and unconditional love is part of what makes a family.

Now that I look at it, I'm glad and grateful that this scene was included, even though it hurts.

Obviously, I want these broken old teacups to make up, and so does Stan (and they most likely WILL) but the fact that he outright states that he does not need Ford’s approval or acceptance because he already has these things from other people (the kids, and Soos and Wendy, too) he now considers family is so, so important.

Can I just say that I am so proud of Alycia? (I feel like she doesn’t get even nearly as much love and appreciation as she deserves.) We will have only seen her in three episodes so far this season, and already she has just absolutely brought her A game. Like the level of commitment to the character, the depth and the layers she has given to Lexa, is just extraordinary. I am so impressed, and more importantly, I am so thankful. I truly do believe that a big part of why Lexa was so compelling to the writers and why they’ve chosen to so clearly make her a main, central part of the narrative, is in Alycia’s stunning performance. I’ve always said that Clarke is my favourite character, because she is the lead and we’ve spent the most time with her (and I love her to death), but DAMN if Alycia hasn’t been stealing the show this season. Lexa is a character I have always wanted to see, and Alycia makes her so real and so delightful to watch. Well done, and keep it up. (I say, in case she ever happens to see this). I can’t wait to see more. I am forever grateful to AMC as well, for letting her divide her time between The 100 and Fear The Walking Dead. You would never know just by watching her this season that she had to jump back and forth between productions. She has just, completely and utterly, nailed it. 10/10, hands down. 

So my cousin was cleaning out his old band room and he saved all this MCR stuff for me????
Look at this freaking poster. It says ©2005 on it. There is a setlist from warped tour ‘05, two from their black parade show in Auckland ‘07 along with his working pass, and one of Bob’s drum sticks (which looks like it has teeth marks in it) plus the cds/dvds and the magazine. Its Christmas again, I’m so stoked!

The Morning Show: Co-star Connotations with Aaron Tveit (x)

“Also from Les Mis, the Oscar-nominated Eddie Redmayne.”
“Uh, one of the
smartest…um…coolest guys I’ve ever gotten to work with - and, again, just one of the nicest people I know.

Edited to remove the segment-intro filler. The one where Aaron is supposed to summarise his ex-colleagues in “a word or very short phrase,” and instead gushes about how nice everyone is. The line-up comprises Hugh Jackman, Eddie Redmayne, Ricky Gervais, Vanessa Hudgens, James Franco, and Blake Lively, but since this is Wall “Eddie and Aaron are our BROTP” Journal, we’re somewhat fixated on the fact that he launched into describing Eddie exactly as how we’d always suspected he views him…and ended off with “one of the nicest people I know,” giving us faint hope that our BROTP Masterpost isn’t quite over yet…
