What’s really interesting about Jasper’s appearance in this episode is her escalation of behaviour. When we first saw her, during her fight with the Crystal Gems, she was rough and intimidating, but not unreasonably violent.

She didn’t kill, she captured.

Now in this episode, Jasper is ready to shatter Steven because Lapis won’t fuse with her. And I think this, more than anything, shows that she really really needs help.

Jaspers are supposed to be ‘huge, loyal soldiers’ but being Malachite has screwed her over so bad that any loyalty she had for Homeworld got eradicated. She doesn’t care about Yellow Diamon or her mission, she doesn’t care about anything except getting back the one thing she thinks she needs to be strong.

Malachite has messed her up and manipulated her beliefs so badly that she doesn’t even realize how much it fucked her over.

Help her.

why i love (all) the signs
  • (pisces sun/scorpio moon/aquarius rising/venus dom pov)
  • aries:as hot headed and impulsive as you guys are, you are really supportive and loyal friends. you will beat up anyone who decides to hurt someone you love or care for. you are super fun to hang out with too! i have never met a boring aries, and i don't think i ever will. aries make awesome friends. if you want someone to beat up that jerk that has been harassing since last week, go to an aries.
  • taurus:honestly just the coolest people ever. not only are you guys super attractive, but your also really and laid back and chill. you're also very dependable and i can't help but look up to you guys for that. not to mention that you're quite smart as well. you might not be the easiest person to deal with when it comes to arguments or making decisions (you can be quite stubborn, which is a good and bad thing!), but you guys are still awesome people and i love you guys.
  • gemini:idk why but there is something so charming and attractive about you guys that i just adore. you're creative and fun people, and your hearts are (most of the time) in the right place. your friendly and accepting and that's probably the reason why every single gemini sun or moon i have met is so popular! not to mention that every single gemini i have met has some kind of talent that they are really good at. whether it's filming or cooking or cheerleading, all of you guys have some kind of talent, and you are always good at it. i almost envy how lovable you twins are. keep it up gemini folks, you're one of my favorite signs.
  • cancer:not as innocent as you think, but they are still very huggable and nice people. cancers are either really shy and quiet or really optimistic and cheerful. some cancers that i have met are even snarky and sarcastic (kind of like a scorpio or aquarius) but are still affectionate and nice to be around. i love cancers because they are the kind of friends that will make you cookies for no real reason, or will give you hugs when you're feeling down (or just because they want to). cancers that i have met also have a very weird sense of humor that you can't help but love. these people are really cool. go hug a cancer.
  • leo:either loads of chill, or no chill. leo people will try their best to make everyone happy, but won't go all the way if they don't want to. they are generous and helpful people. surprisingly, i have not once met a leo that was popular and full of themselves. in fact, most leos i have met are pretty humble (MOST not all). they are also very funny and friendly as well. leos are the kind of people that will greet you with a bear hug every time you see them. in my opinion, leos would make awesome dads. they are really cool friends too. they've always got your back, too.
  • virgo:kind of like cancers, all virgos that i have met have a very weird and goofy sense of humor that you just love for some reason. they are also not as worrisome and uptight as predicted. i love virgos mainly because of their humor and sarcasm. they can be a little prickly at times, but they are one of those friends that will support you no matter what stupid bull crap you decide to do. they will get you out of a mess that you got yourself into, they will lend you a pen if you forgot yours at home or lost yours in science class. virgos might be a little reserved or shy at first but they slowly open up to you and begin to show affection. i personally find this part of them adorable.
  • libra:cheerful, friendly, and goofy. a libra is the kind of friend that will brighten your day when you are in a funk, and will take you out somewhere for whatever reason. they are without a doubt the best people to party with, but you might want to keep an eye one them...they can easily get carried away when drunk! most libras that i have met are also hopeless romantics, and will gush about some old couple they saw holding hands while walking down the street. they also got sass. libras are really fun and energetic people, and make super cool friends.
  • scorpio:my god you guys are awesome. your funny and sarcastic, but also supportive and kind. similar to an aries, scorpios will beat up some kid that has been bullying you or your ex partner that decided to break up with you over the phone. scorpios are really cool (and kind of reckless) friends that are lovable in every way. they can easily become the life of the party, but they can also be quite introverted as well. it just depends on the person really. scorpios are also passionate and loyal lovers, which is rare to find these days. scorpios are really amazing people, and deserve all the love in the world.
  • sagittarius:for a person who lives in a family where half of the people are born under the sign of sagittarius, i have met my fair share of sags. they are friendly and caring like a leo but also a bit reckless and impulsive like an aries. i love sags because of how lovable they are. idk why but there is something so attractive and lovable about sagittarius folks that makes me so happy when i meet one. like libras, sags have lots of sass and are really goofy. they are the kind of friends that will take you out on a car ride when you're feeling down or for no reason at all. sags are really just super fun people that you can't help but love.
  • capricorn:i have met all different kinds of caps. cheerful ones, shy ones, awkward ones, energetic ones. i have only met one introverted capricorn. capricorns are without a doubt the kind of person you want as a friend. they are not only smart cookies, but they will do special things for you like buy you a random present for no real occasion or help you study for that next math test. they do small things for you that i really appreciate...not to mention that is kind of cute. in fact, capricorns have their own little cute quirks and habits. i have met so many different kinds of caps, but the one thing they all have in common is how great friends they can be. if you want a friend for life, go to a capricorn.
  • aquarius:my favorite sign. they are friendly and goofy and just so lovable! they are hilarious and very cool people. they are quirky and fun in so many ways, and i have never met an aquarius that wasn't interesting! aquarius folks have such a fun personality! i can't enough of them. like geminis, almost every aquarius i have met has some special thing or talent about them that they are always good at. they are also good at dealing with people. they can also be a little rebellious, which for a pisces like myself, i find really cool and attractive. aquarius people are simply amazing, and are without a doubt my favorite sign.
  • pisces:and then there are these guys. very nice people, without a doubt. the thing i love most about them is their creativity and humor. i have yet to meet a pisces who didn't have a thing for one of the arts. they are also very nice people as well. some of the nicest people i have met are pisceans! they are also very accepting. it doesn't matter whether your a boy, girl, gay, trans, bi, preppy, emo, hipster...they can become friends with any people with any personality (unless those people are jerks to them). pisceans are also really funny! they are such great people with their hearts always in the right place. i have yet to meet a pisces i didn't like.

Suicide Squad

Makes me wary about more Joker & Harley shippers.
Please do not ship them, it is very clearly an abusive relationship where Joker doesn’t really give a damn about Harley other than she’s a convenient and loyal henchman.
Their relationship is interesting to watch but it is canon that Harley eventually gets away from the Joker because even she knows it’s a toxic relationship.
Harley is the funny one, the stong one, once you take her away you realize how crazy and obsessive Joker is (about batman)
Harley is not the 1 girl who won his heart over, do your research, their relationship isn’t about love when it comes to the Joker.

EDIT: Okay so now people want to murder me because I dislike how people ignore the whole abusive part of the relationship. Also, I didnt mean to connect New 52 with Suicide Squad. I used New 52 as a reference to help my argument. I merely mentioned how the movie would further push fans to romanticize their relarionship. I know it’s complex, I get it, I personally don’t like it. If you do, GUESS WHAT? IT’S FINE! I’m just here speaking an opinion. Didn’t mean to sound demanding. Goodbye cruel world.

Hope you’re all having a lovely week, friends 💕🌱 I’m currently in the midst of packing for the upcoming adventure {imagine clothes haphazardly strewn about a bedroom — striped socks spilling out of my dresser and skirts hanging from the ceiling fan, but my suitcase looking IMPECCABLE} and trying my best to finish before tomorrow night as there’s a Pokémon Bar Crawl being hosted in my area! The alcohol isn’t what will draw me out but the ever-elusive Snorlax that frequents the area. I also expect to welcome Gengar to my team by tomorrow night, so… productive days, indeed! (´^`) Were we in the world of Pokémon, my Dream Team would, at the very least, consist of Arcanine and Gengar. Arcanine to be my loyal, badass fire pupper companion and Gengar to be ridiculous alongside me while we leave a trail of chaotic goofiness everywhere we go. Humor and massive snuggles with a massive pup — consider my recipe for happiness complete! Lugia and Ninetales would likely join the tribe, as well… but the remaining Dream Team candidates are still, to this day, something I mull over far too seriously. Forever genuinely contemplating this as if it was a life-or-death scenario, bah! 🔍💭 The woes of a creature who loves far too many things and could be made happy by far too many things.

Can we just talk about Todd?

(Spoilers for Season 3 of Bojack Horseman)

I’ve always loved Todd for his childlike innocence and naivety, he’s always so optimistic and sweet. We can all agree it’s easy to have a soft spot for him, he is the mooch that we can adore. But he’s not just a goofy housemate for our main character, nor is he simply a “best friend” - the amazing writers of this show have given him many depths that I think are really important. He CAN speak up for himself when he would like to. He is LOYAL but understands he is a person that doesn’t deserve to be treated badly. He has spoken up against Bojack several times now for his wrong doings, but because of his kind hearted nature that Bojack is so used to, when Todd is upset, Bojack does listen. Todd is hard to hurt, so Bojack KNOWS he’s fucked up if Todd is angry at him.

But in Season 3, there was a new development. A new childhood friend of Todd made an appearance, and she clearly had a strong attraction to him. Todd obviously cares about her, but the series toys with us and makes us question how. He’s given several opportunities to make their relationship sexual, but reacts with reluctance and excuses, he also seems incredibly uncomfortable with the idea.

And it’s hard for us too, the audience, to imagine him wanting intercourse. Especially when he has never experienced any attraction romantically or sexually so far. But when Bojack sleeps with Emily (the childhood friend in case you’re not following), Todd is hurt, he clearly saw her as more than just a friend. So what is Todd’s deal?

Well… Nothing. Todd later sits down with Emily who asks him if he’s gay. His response? 

“I think I’m nothing.”

This is it. Something other than being gay or straight in mainstream media. Bisexuality is slowly becoming noticed but Asexuality doesn’t exist according to popular television. Todd has been given another layer of depth for being an openly asexual character.

Loyal, Funny, adorable, asexual… Todd is a wonderful character and I would love to see how many more layers they can give him in the upcoming seasons.

cuddleclutch-blog  asked:

Hello, I am struggling lately with certain feminist qualities being labeled as 'negative'. As a queer, arguably butch, woman with a flat voice, & inability to interact superficially, I don't fit expectations of femininity. However, inside I'm sensitive, sweet, loyal, and passionate. I feel a walking metaphor of a book being judged by its cover. This does feel oppressive, & over time it does impact my perspective. Can you speak a bit to how social expectations of a women's character are damaging?

There is nothing you can really do to change the perceptions and actions of others. You are not the problem, they are. You are wonderful, exactly as you are. There is nothing wrong with your cover or what’s inside you. This world is a hard place for a woman. We’re supposed to be quiet and polite and feminine and demure. When we don’t fit into that mold, we are judged and told that we need to correct our presentation and our personality. That judgment makes us shrink and doubt and diminish ourselves until we start to believe all the terrible things we are told. 

The best thing you, or any of us can do, is try as much as we can, to just be ourselves out in the world. The more we are brave enough to be ourselves, the more those who would judge us will have to get their shit together and get on board or get left behind. 

Seventeen As Pets

Hip-Hop Unit:

S.Coups: I can see him being a Golden Retriever. He’s a family dog and extremely loyal. He’s the type to try and sleep on your bed with you.

Wonwoo: Wonwoo would probably be a turtle. Really easy to care for and adorable at the same time.

Mingyu: Another dog. Only, he’s one of those huge dogs that thinks he is a lap dog. Probably chases his own tail for hours. Also sniffs your butt a lot…..

Vernon: He’s a lap dog that thinks he’s a guard dog. Really hyper and adventurous.

Vocal Unit:

Jeonghan: A cat. The kind that sleeps all day and knocks over things while you tell it to stop. Also kind of vicious to strangers but sweet to you.

Joshua: A guinea pig. These babies are so laid back and docile. He’s kind to anyone who holds him and is entertaining to watch.

Seungkwan: I can see Seungkwan as being a house cat. He really loves attention and is always getting into something. He plays in the toilet a lot and gets his head stuck in empty cereal boxes.

DK: A parrot. Really loud and hard to miss. Extremely sweet and bright, much like DK. He’ll be whistling and singing all day long.

Woozi: A mouse. Really intelligent and also very small. You don’t even know how, but he gets out of his cage often.

Performance Unit:

Jun: A ferret. Kind of like a cat but not quite. He likes to wrestle a bit with you but is pretty good most of the time.

Hoshi: Hamster. Really active. Cute but don’t cross him because his bites hurt (i’ve had mean hamsters) Luckily he’s a really sweet hamster though who is usually running in his wheel all night,

The8: An outdoor cat. He likes to explore outside a lot but you can count on him being home for his dinner. He brings you presents a lot.

Dino: A husky puppy. He likes to think he’s a grown up dog but he still has some time as a pup. This puppy fears no one and lets you know when it is time for a walk.

Just my 2 cents on the whole matter

I try not to ever read any articles about Sherlock ever, they tend to be full of BS and lies aimed at the casual audience. It was hard to miss the quotes coming from this last one.

I will say this: Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are not my “dads.” They are two middle aged men who have the money and clout to get their dream fanfiction made into a TV show. They are writing this for themselves, and will not doubt pat themselves on the back when it’s all over.

They care more about their lies and keeping their “big secret” under wraps than their very loyal fan base. I find what happened this weekend at SDCC and the following article that came out screamed “damage control” and I still believe in TJLC, the show makes no damn sense without it.

I told Steph I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and someone to say something cruel and hurtful about the fans, and here we are….again. I don’t believe they care about their fans. They care about their hype and plots twists and big revels.

So yes, I think they are full of shit. And yes I still believe in Johnlock. I still think it’s going to happen. But every time those two open their mouths and say something cruel, I find myself caring about the whole thing a little bit less.

-an angry johnlocker

Lapis isn’t a pure innocent angel and I don’t think anyone’s arguing that but Jasper… Jasper is just a bully, straight up. Like for some fans i gotta wonder if we’re watching the same show, because ppl act like there’s this beautiful sympathetic side of her that doesn’t actually exist yet. Of course, later in the series we might see her become more complex -I actually expect to see that at some point- but as it stands now, from her strictly canon, onscreen appearances, all we’ve seen is that she intimidates people, pushes them around, and is loyally devoted to the evil space empire that personally hurt our characters in countless ways. I know ya’ll love your cheeto puff but please…. please…… She’s still an asshole.. she’s still a villain… don’t prematurely force redemption on her… let the show take its time…. please…

So, after seeing.you recommend him a couple of times, I finally gave Dean a listen, and OMG HE'S AMAZING!!! I feel so bad for not looking into him before!!!!! 😭😭😭 He's so good! Any other song recommendations besides Bonnie and Clyde? ~Jisin anon

omg YES dean is my precious mushroom here are some other recs just in case you guys haven’t listened to Dean yet^^

  • Dean x Gaeko, D (Half Moon); LINK; Honestly this mv made me have an existential crises it’s that kinda song. I have this on my morning playlist that I usually use before getting ready for school bc it’s just so relaxing also there’s this one line that i LOVE it goes “We used to joke around and call each other one but you are you and I am I.”
  • Dean x Crush x Jeff Bernat, what2do; LINK; I like to listen to this song on rainy days when I’m writing or trying to finish up some work (needless to say I’ve been listening to this song A LOT recently). Also I’ve been kinda inspired to write a Woozi scenario based off this song? Who knows// the mv is super pretty tho~~
    • (Also while on the topic of Zico listen to his song I Am You You Are Me bc I’ve been obsessed with that song lately and it’s so chill listen to it HERE)
  • Dean, 21; LINK; This song is so classic and it just gives off the vibe of like ballroom dancing with your soulmate and causing mischief late at night in the 60s. It’s great. + Dean does this lip bite thing which has me weak.
  • Dean, And You?; LINK; This is only an outro so it’s kinda short but it’s still one of my favs like his voice is so smooth and BEAUTIFUL. + There’s like this rewind effect in the end that’s got me feeling things.

Alone at Sea

The way I see it is that Jasper and Lapis are abusers, but in different ways.

Jasper was obviously physically abusive (tossing Lapis around like a rag doll on several occasions) and emotionally abusive (coursing Lapis into fusing, using phrases such as “I’ve changed”, “I’m bad, but you’re worse”, and “We had so much power together” blaming Lapis’ change of heart on a 3rd party)

But I feel like Lapis was more psychologically abusive.

Lapis held Malachite together for well over a year, and we have seen the physical toll it has taken on both her and Jasper. Also, Jasper seemed to be psychologically damaged since Chille Tid (only uttering the same word over and over while crawling to Steven) and it shows more in Alone at Sea.
Jasper went from a loyal, prideful, and intimidating soldier to literally getting on her knees and begging Lapis to fuse again.

Basically, Lapis is an example of emotional manipulation and physical abuse in a relationship, and Jasper’s current condition is an example of the psychological side-effects of an abusive relationship.

team+house results!

(Okay guys, gals, and non binary pals I did some maths so ya better reblog this feel free to contribute if you know house theory cause I sure don’t) 

As expected really but note that its quite balanced. Factors contributing to this include 1) almost everyone is in Mystic 2) People on this hell site we call home are nerds; of course we’re interested in researching Pokemon and evolution and types etc.

You know how slytherins are passionate and ambitious af? These are ones who are more extroverted, want to win, and extra in general tbh bless them. Valor also has the highest percentage of Gryffs in this sample. 

Instinct is the team thats interested in the intuition, psychology and spirit of Pokemon. Both Hufflepuffs and Slytherins read behaviour in situations a lot; to protect themselves and others. Slyths and Puffs are also protective and loyal, and trolling the westboro baptist church would totally suit their sense of humour.

(We’re doing percentage by team so the many mystic members don’t throw the already not super scientific data.)

anonymous asked:

I don't understand how people can think Jasper is the abusive one. Lapis broke greg's leg, stole the ocean, hurt steven's family and friends, almost killed them, held jasper in a fusion for months, broke peridot's recorder. Jasper was being rude and doing her job. Yeah, she was kind of an asshole and could have just left earth, but... as a loyal soldier, she was only doing what she was supposed to. She actually asked lapis to fuse (grabed her, but it was lapi's choice, she could have killed (1)


girl #1: let’s make a girl alliance. us girls gotta stick together.

girl #2: umhm wtf. no way. i’m gonna go be in this showmance with boy#5. him and me will be the ultimate duo, and we’ll be completely loyal to each other.

boy #5: i sadly vote to evict girl #2. she’s my girl, but if I want to get further in the game i have to cut her off.

The writer of this article is suggesting that Gotham replace David Mazouz with an older actor, so they can “age up” the character.

“Commissioner James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) has held his ground, and loyal Wayne Manor butler Alfred (Sean Pertwee) has gone above and beyond as the steward for the Wayne Legacy. Both of these characters and their backstories have entertained and enamored us to keep watching, but they are just two pieces of a puzzle that cannot be made whole unless we see some spectacular growth from the most important character, Bruce Wayne.”

The writer goes on to suggest that Gotham dump David after season three and replace him with an older actor such as the writer’s recommendation: Tyler Posey. The writer goes on to say that such a change would:

“elevate Gotham to another level, and probably will bring an abundance of new fans to the show.“    X

Personally, I think this would be a huge mistake. I have nothing against Tyler Posey. However, David is my favorite Bruce Wayne of all time, and the sensitivity and nuance he brings to the role is irreplaceable. Gotham has its strong and weak points; David is one of the strongest of the strong points. Assuming Gotham gets a fourth season, I’m looking forward to continuing to watch David grow into the role of the adult Bruce Wayne/Batman.

What does anyone else think?
