It wasn’t until a week later when Shirayuki finally managed to convince Obi that they should make the long drive into Albuquerque for sushi (immediately followed by barbecue at his request). Except somewhere around noon she received an apologetic text that he was caught up with an emergency repair for a client that was willing to pay him double-time, and he would be stuck at the shop until midnight more than likely. Her face fell and she looked up from her phone to her field notes and back again, chewing on her lower lip.

Important things to keep in mind about the Ghost drama

So I had some late night thoughts… and im itching to get it out.
Now let’s re-evaluate this lawsuit drama. Let’s take the lawsuit out of the equation and look at things more objectively.

Let me start off with throwing in my unpopular opinion (trust me, just read this post thoroughly):

I honestly don’t have the best impression of Alpha. I think he’s unprofessional and naive (his musical talent doesn’t apply here)

1) Ghost’s IG maintains a strict and specific format on each post revolving around the band’s activities. So what did Alpha do? He posted a photo of him getting his wisdom tooth removed by his wife on the band’s Instagram.
When I first saw Alpha’s photo, I honestly thought he meant to post it on his personal profile. But the caption intended it to be otherwise (it was signed off as Alpha)
Like how was this relevant to the band’s music? Were you just trying to show off your super hot wife?? ¿¿¿ I personally don’t get it. I got it now, he used his band’s exposure to promote his wife’s business. How professional 🙄

2) He took advantage of Ghost fans to hurt Papa and the new Ghouls by airing their personal private drama on his Facebook account. All it did was divide our community apart. A community that him and his band mates created. All I got from that fb post was how his drama serves more importance than the well being of his fans/community

3) Alpha’s whole new PRIEST project: The masked leader, the cult like image that shares similar qualities to Ghost. It’s a different genre for sure, but it doesn’t change the fact that it does share its similarities to the band. It screams passive aggression to me. 
I can’t help but to think that he’s petty how he’s not getting the recognition as he did in Ghost. And now he’s trying to gain sympathy from his Ghost fans in hopes that they’ll abandon Ghost and check out his new project instead (Which is working in very small numbers)
///
Now let’s take us back to a few months after the Ghouls were let go:
Maybe his past band mates felt used and now they’re finding an excuse to get their revenge on Papa for firing them.
WHICHHHH BRINGS ME TO A POINT…

*I believe that Ghost was intended to be a solo act from the very start. *

If you look at the band from a visual pov, Papa has always been the spokesperson/face of Ghost. You think of Ghost, you think of Papa first. 
I can see/interpret how the Ghouls’ presence were initially used to strengthen that cult-like image to band, which is fair and a smart business decision to attract an audience. It’s unique, it’s bold, it’s loud, and it’s a head-turner (Insert their red carpet Grammy videos)

Now somewhere along the way, the Ghouls started to catch the attention of the audience because of their strong stage/media presence (Think of it as Gru and his minions from Despicable Me. Gru might be the main character, but those cute ass minions caught the heart of many as well)
And maybe Papa wasn’t okay with that and it’s not what he wanted when he wanted to become a solo act.
Since The Ghouls agreed that he would be the band leader, Papa can do whatever he pleases with them.

So Papa, why not just hire random musicians/stand ins if you wanted to go solo in the first place?

1) Renting musicians aren’t cheap, especially if they charge x amount of personal rate/show. It’s better to start off with a bunch of close friends and settle in on an agreement than having to comply to a rented musician’s compensation . You’ll have to deal with more legal paperwork and later on someone will always want to demand more money or exposure.

#2) It takes money to make money. If you take a look at their costume designs and their set designs on stage, it takes up a lot of artistic design components. 
Costume designers/Set designers don’t come in cheap. At all. Now imagine having to pay for those bills when you’re a relatively small band? We’ve had 3 Papas with 4 different costumes and 2-3 Ghoul costume designs for each band member. That’s at least 6 different costume designs. Normally, rock bands just wear store bought clothing (most of them are normally sponsored by the brand) but since Ghost has such a strong/specific visual image that they can’t get away with your seasonal Halloween attire. It’s crucial for them to invest in more money into this area because that’s one of the main reasons why they got famous in the first place.

So being in this type of band, it won’t have the greatest starting salary when you’re constantly paying off those bills. I won’t be surprised if they were still in debt within the first couple of years of touring.

At the end of the day, if this whole theory is true, then I get why they’re mad at Papa. I would get why Omega isn’t suing him because maybe he saw Papa’s true intentions and didn’t agree with it? And maybe he still wants Papa to come back to MCC if Ghost decides to disband after this feud, and not let a lawsuit cut ties on what’s left of their friendship?
(All of this is based off of my assumptions so don’t rely on me as a solid source.)

TBH I just want some objectivity brought into light because I’m seeing a lot of blinded/biased judgement. It really does hurt to see this community being divided by Alpha’s reckless Facebook post.

So that whole ‘Spider-Man is about youth’ thing

I know some people place a shitton of stock into the words of the professionals so let me just throw a few things at you.


Peter David is one of, possibly the, most accomplished writer under Marvel’s employ in terms of the breadth and acclaim garnered by his bibliography. This includes the critically acclaimed Death of Jean DeWolff storyline and the fan favourite Spider-Man 2099 series, which is about a very much ADULT character who is the Spider-Man of his timeline. He doesn’t think Spider-Man is about youth or that there is anything wrong with him being married. In fact he stated that the series as a whole spinning its wheels from the time of the Master Planner Trilogy up until the marriage when something really different happened. He began reading Spider-Man at some point before the original publication of Amazing Spider-Man #100 back in the early 1970s.

J.M. DeMatteis has written both critically acclaimed Spider-Man stories and stories which are the most layered and dense in terms of their theme and depth of human psychology. This has included the iconic Kraven’s Last Hunt. He also does not think Spider-Man is about youth or that he should not be married. In fact he made the marriage a vital part of his most revered storyline and utilized it a lot in his various other stories. He began reading Spider-Man at some point during the original John Romita Senior run of Spider-Man.

Tom DeFalco is former Editor-in-Chief of Marvel comics, former editor of Spider-Man, has written a very well regarded and vitally important run of Amazing Spider-Man in the 1980s and followed that up with two more runs (on Spectacular and Amazing Spider-Man) in the 1990s before embarking on a near (unbroken) 150 issue long run on fan favourite Spider-Girl. The latter by the way is currently the longest running (at least without substantial gaps) Spider-Man spin-off character and also the female Marvel character who’s had the most consistently longest running solo title ever.

 He is also the author of the well reviewed 2001 book ‘Spider-Man the Ultimate Guide’ which was for it’s time the single most comprehensive information book about Spider-Man ever published. During his tenure as writer of Amazing Spider-Man he and Ron Frenz he established Mary Jane Watson as knowing Spider-Man’s secret identity and introduced readers to Spidey’s black costume, later establishing it as an alien symbiote. These and other elements from his run have made their way into other media and been constants in the Spider-Man series ever since.

Tom DeFalco has inferred on more than one occasion that his favourite era of Spider-Man was when Spider-Man was in High School. This makes a certain amount of sense because he first began reading Spider-Man in the early 1960s…specifically with Amazing Fantasy #15.

But did you know that Tom DeFalco ALSO doesn’t think Spider-Man is about youth. In fact he once specifically said Spider-Man isn’t about youth but responsibility, going on to say that the more responsibility Spider-Man has the more interesting the character is. When Spider-Man was originally married in the 1980s Tom DeFalco was against it…at first. He then changed his mind and became one of its biggest champion among other Marvel creators. 

Tom DeFalco’s disbelief in the ideas that Spider-Man is about youth and that the marriage was antithetical to the character are evident in the fact that he proposed and implemented a storyline intended to make Spider-Man a parent and his creation of Spider-Girl (Peter Parker’s daughter) was partially done as a fulfillment of this idea.


Finally there is another Marvel creator to be discussed.

His name is Stan Lee.

Stan Lee is the co-creator  of Spider-Man. He also co-created the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, the Mighty Thor, Ant-Man, the Wasp, the Avengers and many other Marvel characters and properties which have endured to this very day.

His Spider-Man credits include literally the first 100 issues of Amazing Spider-Man, Amazing Fantasy #15, and various Spider-Man annuals.

Within those issues are stories which are regarded as undeniably the most iconic in Spider-Man’s history and the unquestionably most adapted source material for various Spider-Man media adaptations.

They include:

The origin of the character adapted and referenced in…pretty much every film and TV show about the character

The Master Planner Trilogy, regarded by many as the greatest Spider-Man story of all time. It inspired parts of the Playstation game Spider-Man 2000 and an episode of the Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series, both of which were critically acclaimed.

Amazing Spider-Man #42 the introduction of Spider-Man’s most famous love interest Mary Jane, an introduction so iconic it’s been homaged, parodied and referenced ad infinitum and adapted into two different cartoon shows

Spider-Man No More which once again has been referenced numerous times in various comics and other media (Marvel affiliated or otherwise) due to how iconic it is and was the major inspiration for Spider-Man 2, regarded as the best Spider-Man film of all time as well as at the time one of the best superhero/comic book films of all time.

Stan Lee for a number of years also wrote the Amazing Spider-Man Newspaper Strip which has remained in syndication ever since.


Stan Lee has to my knowledge NEVER  claimed Spider-Man is about youth.

It was in Stan Lee’s run that Spider-Man AGED  to the point where he graduated high school and attended college. 

In a letters page Stan Lee in response to a statement about Spider-Man’s hypothetical child joked that the character wasn’t even married yet.

During Stan Lee’s run Peter Parker considered proposing to his girlfriend Betty Brant in only issue #30 of the series. Much later around issue #100 Peter was seriously considering marrying his girlfriend Gwen Stacy and was making plans for the sake of that future.

Stan Lee has gone on record numerous times that he created Gwen Stacy to be Peter’s ultimate love interest and because he believed she’d make the perfect wife for him.

Int he 1980s Stan Lee when asked by a fan if Peter and Mary Jane could get married opted to make that happen in the Newspaper strip and inquired about making it happen in the comics too.

Before the abolition of the marriage in the comics, Stan Lee in an interview was asked if he felt that Spider-Man being married in any way negatively affected the character. He didn’t feel that was the case.

After the marriage was abandoned in the main comics universe the newspaper strip did the same thing…temporarily. It eventually went back to featuring a married Spider-Man and has remained so ever since.


Now…call me crazy…but it seems to me that all of that would seem to possibly imply that maybe…just maybe…

SPIDER-MAN ISN’T SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT FUCKING YOUTH!!!!!!!!

blitzdrake  asked:

Everytime I see your "I will be Derek's second husband." "What happened to his first?" "Nothing you can prove." I just crack up again and again. But lately instead of just laughing...I WANT that story! promise me you'll tell me if someone ever writes Dexter style Murder!Husband Stiles who offed Derek's first abusive/evil (Kate Argent in Male form) husband. 'Cause I'd READ that so many times.

im sorry for posting this instead of answering privately but YES I WANT THAT TOO so here’s to all sterek writers out there… please?????????

Let me throw this out there:

Werewolves still are a thing, Stiles doesn’t know about them tho, and he thinks kate’s just a bitch, but he’s the best at what he does (american assassin style yo!) but he’s also a romantic daydreamer (thanks mom claudia, who was sick and that’s how he got so young at his line of work, but now she’s cured but she doesn’t know and money’s good so… don’t judge him), and the superhot neighbor, who owns the bakery with stiles favorite coffee and pastries, takes all the abuse his “wife” lashes out on him…. So Stiles takes to take revenge when he overhears kate electrocuting Derek, he researches everything,keeps record of every single thing, about the network she has to keep derek trapped and all his family targeted, and he starts planning, and he freaking lures Kate and her men into a trap, his masterpiece scott called it, and gets Derek his freedom, even if he knows he can’t reveal what he did, but Derek doesn’t leave him alone (because hello, he know stiles is lying but he can’t prove anything)… and at the end they are together, with 5 kids, and Scott’s speech wedding starts with “the first thing Stiles said about Derek was “in 20 years, he’d be Derek’s second husband” and when I asked “what happened to the first?” he said “nothing we could prove” and it only took him 8 years, so they still have 12 to go”

@duocorpora / you absolutely did not like a single thing and yet here we are.

But I will make you a promise: it will end here, in this room, right now.

darn it’s gonna rain for the next few days m gonna have to postpone the curse

Oh shit. I just thought of another favorite trope. Though honestly it’s one I’ve not seen enough of? Is it really a trope?

Two people are both doing the same monstrous cross-country drive, which is supposed to take like a week, and they meet on Craigslist or something. One has a car, the other can chip in for petrol. Everything goes wrong, car breaking down, storm gets them stuck in a diner for two days straight, and obviously they fall in love because I’m a horrifying sap. So much room for fake platonic bed sharing, revelations, car sex and of course the inevitable ‘goodbye’ at the end (which you already know won’t last because now they’re in love).

Books to read for an English Lit major?

I mean, what books have you been assigned? Do you have a concentration? Are you doing de facto British lit or English language lit? This is one of those questions where without more context I’m not sure how helpful I can be. 

But let me throw out some things I (personally) feel like every English major should read all or part of at some point:

  • Beowulf
  • The Canterbury Tales and The Faerie Queene
  • Shakespeare—the five great tragedies, comedies of your choice, at least one history, and at least one problem play
  • At least one of Shakespeare’s contemporaries—Kyd or Marlowe or Jonson or Fletcher, I’d suggest Doctor Faustus and The Spanish Tragedy
  • Paradise Lost
  • Early novels (Defoe, Fielding, etc.)
  • Some of the romantic poets, though I know less about this than I should
  • Some Jane Austen, though I personally think P&P is overrated
  • Jane Eyre, Anthony Trollope, and George Eliot
  • Dickens—I’d suggest definitely A Tale of Two Cities and then either Oliver Twist or Great Expectations
  • Dracula, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein
  • Henry James, Joseph Conrad, and Thomas Hardy
  • Some Restoration comedy
  • Some Robert Burns and Blake
  • Washington Irving and Edgar Allan Poe
  • The Scarlet Letter, Moby Dick, something by Jack London
  • I hate Mark Twain but you should probably at least read Tom Sawyer
  • H. G. Wells and Jules Verne
  • Joyce and Beckett

There’s literally so much more that should go on this list. I’m going to be sort of honest, I kind of gave up. Because you should also read things like The Iliad and The Odyssey and Faust and shit by Descartes and Darwin and Freud just so you have an appreciation for all the stuff that half these authors are talking about. 

At this point I’m turning it over to followers. Guys? What do you think is essential reading for the English major?

When pursuing a relationship with me, you must be prepared for the absolute worst, and unexpected. You must be prepared for days that I don’t want to get out of bed, and the days that I have so much energy I could run a marathon. You must be prepared for the times when I’m crying so hard for no big deal, and the times when I’m laughing so hard that I can’t breathe. For the days that I would rather jump off a bridge than face life, and the days that I feel indestructible and want to help everyone solve their own problems although I have a million of my own. You must be willing to let me come home and scream and yell and throw things because I had the most shitty day, and you must be willing to let me take you out to dinner just because I’m in the greatest mood. You must be prepared for my 2 o’clock ‘I can’t sleep’ mental breakdowns, or my 3 a.m. ‘let’s go on an adventure’ comments, or the times when I’m so exhausted that I can sleep all day and night. You need to be aware of the major trust issues I have, and respect them, and be prepared to love me even more when you find out why I have them. You must be prepared to indulge into all of me, because when I’m in a relationship, I am prepared for whatever you want to throw at me, and I will take it in, and I will cherish it forever. When pursuing a relationship with me, you must learn that I have more bad days than I do good; therefore, you must be prepared for the absolute worst.
