lina stop


I had too much banana milk and I saw this amazing picture of this 80s guy wearing a shirt with this text and holding a cockatoo and all I could think of was maglor… in whatever universe, to me, maglor would be this… the luxury chemise guy

Waiting in the Wings

Anon request: Fanfic about Barba and his daughter (His daughter is in her school’s musical and is starring, and she told him about it and is worried he won’t be there to see her) please?

Lina took a deep breath and knocked on the door of her father’s study.

“Come in,” Rafael’s voice sounded weary on the other side.

Lina crept into the study, feeling a little apprehensive about the state of mind her father would be in that evening. It wasn’t always easy to be the daughter of an assistant district attorney of the city of New York. Today was one of those days.

“Hi, Papi.”

Rafael looked up at his youngest daughter and gave her a tired smile and closed the file he had in front of him. She shouldn’t be looking at photographs like those, not at the tender age of ten. “Mija,” he beckoned her over. “Everything alright?”

“Yes, Papi. Are you okay? You looked tired.”

Lina had always been a little wise for her years. She had started out life as a tiny infant, but this hadn’t stopped her trying to emulate and keep stride with her older sisters. In Rafael’s opinion, she was growing up faster than he cared to think about.

anonymous asked:

regarding graceland, i notice how much you hate pike (i do too) but you only ever point out how paige was abusive. what are your thoughts on what mike said to her about the fox? (how basically he was the fox and she was just the leg that he needed to chew off) personally, it made me lose a lot of respect for him and it really upset me.

i want to start out by saying that it’s very good that you want to hold people accountable for their actions, but i disagree with you about mike in this scene (his reaction being bad or wrong or upsetting or abusive), and here is why

If Slayers main party was sorted into Harry Potter houses

I’ve seen some debate about it and usually it’s if Lina would be in Gryffindor or Slytherin. I actually think she would be in neither house. The houses are made for what people value the most and I do not think Lina nessecerily values courage nor cunning. Hear me out.

Lina: I think Lina would be sorted into Ravenclaw and here is why….. It is true Lina has traits from Gryffindor and Slytherin, but her ultimate thing is knowledge because knowledge is how she works her magic. In the first season it was about the philosopher’s stone and later Zanaffer. In Next, her whole quest is revolving around getting her hands on copies of the Claire bible which contain information nessecary to cast spells or make them more accurate. It included knowledge on the Lord of Nightmares. (Try was more about her being forced to save the world by Luna.)

Now if she never valued this kind of knowledge I am not sure she would have even invented Giga slave in the first place, as she did experiments before hand. In the Slayers world sorcerers have to be educated via a school and Lina had gone through this herself. She is also always shown explaining things to people, as the role of the teacher with knowledge. This is true in offshoots like Light Magic and in the first season, among the other official extra images of her as a teacher.

She is likewise depicted as able to keep up with Rezo, who is a bit of a “scientist” of that world. Naga has a similar personality but she is more ditzy and business oriented than Lina.

Ravenclaw is also the house of quirky and eccentric people, Lina definitely is far from being an average person let alone your average magic user.

Gourry: Gryffindor, definitely. Gourry is not big on cunning, knowledge, and while he has some traits of hardwork, he is far more about courage. Gryffindor is the “hero” house and Gourry fits that role a lot. In fact he only really seems to do bad when influenced by Lina or black mailed.

Gourry certainly doesn’t show that much fear in the face of enemies. With the exception of Lina. He is also in the business of protecting people and seems to enjoy being Lina’s body guard. Plus, his physical prowless is amazing. If he could remember spells, he would be just as powerful as Lina.

Zel: He would be sorted into Slytherin. Zel is just as capable as Lina is about knowledge, but he seems to use his in more cunning ways and is quite ambitious about fixing his body. For example, in Slayers Revolution he devises many traps based on complex calculations to catch Pokota so he could get information out of him.

Zel seems to hate mazoku such as Xellos but doesn’t mind being called evil. In fact he fully embraces being called an evil sorcerer in Slayers Try. He loves it. While this is not a specific trait of Slytherin and both Slytherins and Ravenclaws have been known to embrace the “darkside” for different reasons, I think it is an interesting point. Also, Zel will forgo some group things because he is uninterested as seen in the jar episode of Try. He is very assertive and many Slytherins are as well. Likewise, he is resourceful, maybe in part to do with his body, but still gets the job done without having as much magic power as Lina. As well as having both physical and magical power.

Amelia: Definitely Hufflepuff. In fact in the sorting hat’s song it mentions that Hufflepuffs are “just and loyal”. Amelia is all about justice and loyalty. Well, I think the justice thing is self-explanatory to anyone who watches the show or reads the novels. She is always trying to do the right thing and she works extremely hard at it, just as Hufflepuffs are not afraid of hard work.

Her loyalty to her family and friends is a very admirable trait. She remains loyal to Lina and Zel, despite the fact they can be on the other side of the moral spectrum at times. (Though she will stop Zel from being a villian if he goes too far.) She seems to value her family a lot, especially her father, but I suspect her sister too, in the subtle hints we’re given. Amelia is all about responsibility to her duties and she also works pretty hard at them, as we see during her off time when she is not fighting evil as an ally of justice.

Naga: Slytherin, and not just because she is Naga the serpent, either. But because though she is ditzy at times, she can switch sides to be against Lina as we have seen in Slayers Platinum, the oavs, and some novels. (In Slayers Special Naga even wanted to kill the last of the mer people for money until Lina stopped her.) Sometimes for Naga, it’s simply the side who pays the most. (She does not seem to care as much about doing the right thing unlike her dad and sis. She even goes too far for Lina.)

On top of the fact that she is ambitious about money and attacks Lina because of sweet business deals or over treasure, she displays cunning or what you could call, an attempt at cunning. Her plans seems to backfire. But she is always trying to fight “dirty” and trick Lina. Such as the time she set Lina’s clothes on fire as a challenge and inadvertently burned the entire hotel down.

Naga is ambitious in glory and nobility too, and many prideful nobles seem to be in Slytherin. One of Naga’s crowning moments is the entire fiasco with Serena, where she laid down the royal slap. Then converted everyone to the greatness that is Naga.

That’s what I got now. I need to maul over Filia and Pokota too. Well, we could exclude Filia too since she is not human either….. But cannot seem to place Pokota atm. Xellos is excluded because he isn’t human, but he may be a Slytherin.

idril!!! a small sketch I colored. she’s just so……. …..!!!! hearteyes emoji, etc

there’s more to aredhel’s character than being killed by her husband. there’s more to celebrian’s story than the trauma she suffered. there’s more to  amarie and anaire than staying behind, more to elwing than her flight, more to nerdanel than tempering feanor’s fire, and there’s more to miriel than being turned into some kind of symbol of death. there’s so much more to these fascinating women in tolkien’s world than being mere afterthoughts to other protagonists’ tales; than being dead wives, dead daughters, dead mothers; and suffering often violent fates at the hands of men. even if you have to dig deep within the narrative sometimes, it is always worth doing so and I feel like it is always the more rewarding option to explore these aspects than reducing them to passive caricatures of doom and faceless victims. (and even if that would be all we found, I feel like we could still at least ask ‘why’ and 'how’ and 'what if’)

melkor and sauron floating in the void, reminiscing about good old times

- feanor trying to hug all his children at once

- little idril taking her father’s larger hands in her own during the passing of the helcaraxe, trying to warm them for him

- awkward hugs between feanor and young fingolfin

- aredhel leaning in slowly and deliberately towards celegorm, looking him deep in the eyes, and when he closes his she quickly kisses his cheek and runs away laughing

- maglor braiding his brother’s hair for him during his recovery

- turgon closing his father’s eyes after thorondor brings him his body

- elrond and elros’ last embrace before he leaves for numenor

- fingon and maedhros doing the forehead touching thing the last time they see each other before nirnaeth

  • Ilúvatar: If you're saying I play favorites, you're wrong! I love all my children equally.
  • [earlier that day]: I don't care for the Númenóreans.

people being all like ‘oooh the woodland elves are so much coooooler than their boring, unlikable, snobbish rivendell & lothlorien counterparts’

I love my mirkwoodlings to death and Ill admit I got a bunch of problems with how the other elves were portrayed in the movies so I see where this might be coming from, but seeing characters like ELROND (and by extension others like glorfindel, elladan & elrohir etc) callled 'boring’ and GALADRIEL referred to as anything other than absolutely show-stoppingly fierce just hurts me on a fundamental level

they are all cool and amazing and tragic and beautiful and terrifying and awe-inspiring and scary and heroic. at least movie!thorin discriminates even-handedly against all elves lmao take his example if you must
