Sadly, this is as HD as the ATLA episodes get, but I hope you give the video a shot anyway and maybe experience some of the emotions I had making it.  Big thanks to @worddevourer for having this idea and my twin sister @splickedylit for consulting with me during its creation!

*curtsies* Dear Duke, thank you so much for mentioning the King Arthur trailer, because I watched it but more importantly listened to the song and holy shit it's so good??? I can't believe I lived my life avoiding Led Zeppelin, thinking 'it's not my thing' when maybe it is?

*curtsies* OH MY SWEET HONEY CHILD let me tell you about Led Zeppelin and rockified blues tunes. See, Zeppelin often gets pigeonholed as hard rock or proto-metal, which doesn’t make any sense because they played in a much broader range of musical styles than that implies, and one thing they did really fucking well was electrifying old blues ballads: e. g. “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” (a great song but again, a weird choice for that particular trailer). If you are digging this vibe of raw gritty sexy power blues, other Zepp tracks you should put on your to-listen list posthaste would be (in roughly chronological order by studio album release): “I Can’t Quit You Baby,” “You Shook Me,” “Since I Been Loving You” (I’ve heard this song a million times and it still destroys me), “When the Levee Breaks,” and “In My Time of Dying” (watch the live version from Earl’s Court in ’75 if you really want to have your mind blown; the remastered version on the 2003 DVD is best). Enjoy!

aight buckle up your seatbelts because today were taking a trip across the fucking galaxy to review comets. or rather comet emojis. 

apple: i will never fucking forgive apple for replacing what was one of my favorite emojis with this thing that looks like a fucking flaming tangerine -99999/10 get your fucking shit together apple

google: its a bit too light and low contrast but overall not bad 7.5/10 a good shooting star

microsoft: see this is the one place where microsofts really extra black border looks good because it makes it look like its actually in space 8/10 not bad

samsung: look, i appreciate the effort to be different and stand out but this looks more like someone throwing a handful of “you tried” stats at my face then a shooting star 3/10 thats not what shooting stars look like

lg: okay i highkey like this one, the hint of purple plus the cool looking sparkles makes it look really pretty and kinda magical 9.5/10 would make a wish on if i saw it in the sky

facebook: facebooks emojis can be a real hit or miss but this one is definitely a hit. i love the cool layering effect plus the sparkles and the colors ahhh its all great 1000/10 what all shooting stars aspire to be

twitter: simple but not bad, gets the idea across without any extra stuff 7/10 very utilitarian 

emoji one: i really dont know what i think of this one to be honest… i like the trail, its a bit too spikey but the colors are nice, but the craters on the thing itself really throw me off, its way more detail then the rest of the emoji has and it looks imbalanced 5/10? maybe?


emojidex: pros: for one goddamn time emojidex didnt make some weird as fuck etra looking thing. cons: its so light i can hardly see it and weirdly shaped tbh. 3/10 i would tell them to try harder but when they do that it just gets weird

Okay, I was just looking again at that Bughead picture for tomorrow’s episode and their choices of milkshake got my attention. Betty has her favorite old-fashioned vanilla and Jughead a strawberry one. Now I’m sure that this might be insignificant but with the exception of the first two episodes, all the other times that Betty is at Pop’s and having a milkshake (even at her date with Trev I might add) she is always drinking a strawberry one. What if this is Jughead’s favorite flavor and Betty was being a total teenage girl all those times and thinking that if she showed him that she likes the same things as him, even something as simple as a milkshake at Pop’s, he would notice her? Let me remind you that the strawberry milkashake as Betty’s drink choice makes its first appearance on episode 4 when they are talking about the drive-in and she suggests Rebel Without A Cause, another of his favorite things which gets an adorable reaction from him. Or maybe it’s just this weird notion when you are in love that something seemingly unimportant and silly makes you think and feel close to your significant other? I don’t know, I just think that this is extremely cute!

- Disintegration, 2nd May 1989 -

And here we are. The masterpiece, The Cure’s opera magna, Disintegration. It’s quite a weird name for an album, if you think about it. I consider it a jump to another level, leaving behind Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me like a few years before they had left behind Pornography. Robert actually said that they did KMKMKM to reach a level that would have allowed them “to be listened to”, even with an album like DIsintegration. Because, let’s say it, this is not an easy listening; out of 12 songs, maybe two could make it to a radio station. But its beauty is that once you fully understand it, once it gets inside your heart, you’ll never be the same person again.
All the themes are very intimate; Robert proposed his ideas to the others already determined to make the album, with or without them… he really wanted to pour everything out, and this need shows a lot, seen how honest and passionate are the songs. He was going through a deep crysis, and it showed also later, during the Prayer Tour (listen to Faith from those concerts, the extra lyrics and his general attitude will leave you without words.).
A thing I absolutely love in all the songs is Robert’s  voice, because it shows how intensely he felt every word. In some songs it sounds so fragile, in others it explodes in frustration… in the previous albums he often played with it, but here it’s just the listener and the lyrics, with no tricks. Every song speaks to my soul in a language I never thought I could understand, and that makes me feel safe, in some ways. He just sounds so honest about what he’s singing about that the lyrics become even more transparent and true, almost in a scary way, Yep, it scares me to feel so naked, face to face with my inner self, but I think it’s also a positive thing, especially when you’re confused about what you feel.

The chords are surrounded by majestic synths, every note seems to resonate in space, cristalline and pure. The most evident example of this feeling is Plainsong, the opening track. The windchimes before the song are pure genius, they give me goosebumps every time, filling the listener with anticipation. Despite the very few lyrics, this song is poetry… Simon’s bass is almost singing here. It’s this song that builds in me the idea of an impetuous wind blowing through all the album, not only for the lyrics (“and the wind is blowing like it’s the end of the world, you said”), but for the general atmosphere of the song. In some ways the whole album is like a thunderstorm, that builds up with songs like Prayers For Rain, Fascination Street, and the astonishing title track, and fades away with Homesick and Untitled. It’s the final thunderstorm, another feature that contributes to make Disintegration an emotional masterpiece. 
I could write about this album for hours, I’m not joking. The famous South Park line “Disintegration is the best album ever!” couldn’t be more true, and still, there’s so much more than that. The only reason why it could’ve been defined as a “commercial suicide” is because it was being released after Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, a totally different album. But this doesn’t mean Disintegration doesn’t have its big hits. Lovesong, that despite being the perfect lovesong fits perfecty in the general atmosphere of the album, and Pictures Of You, that as you might have noticed at this point, is (and will be) my favourite song EVER. For me it’s the enbodiment of three feelings at once: freedom, sadness, and happiness. (And also snow, a lot of snow!). 
Ok, this is getting way too long, I knew it… we’re all aware of huge singles like Lullaby and Lovesong. But I would love to just talk about the title track, Disintegration, it’s so powerful it really hurts. Robert pours everything out in this song, it’s like the ultimate rant before the disintegration of everything. All the album leaves you like everything disintegrated while listening to it… Untitled it’s a perfect frame for the sense of uncompleteness that fills you at the end of the story. Argh, this is getting so frustrating, I could fill PAGES about every single song on this album and I know I can’t…
Anyway. I must put this clear: this is definitely  NOT an easy listening. The first time I heard The Same Deep Water As You I stopped listening after the third minute, I found it almost boring. After the fourth listening, that song taught me what a good 9-minutes-song is. First listen to Lullaby, Lovesong, Pictures Of You, and I can assure you that when you’re ready to listen to it from start to finish you’ll know it deep down in your bones. At least, for me it’s been like that… I was completely lost and confused, and this album made me understand.

So like, I'd like to be able to like crewt (is that the official ship name? Idk) but from what I can find credence is maybe 19, maybe a bit older and maybe younger, and newt seems around 30 ish (didn't look that up, admittedly), so it seems kinda weird for them to be together? Maybe it's just credence's behavior through the movie that's making me view him younger than he really is though, I'm not sure.

Hi! I wasn’t too passionate about Crewt myself before i’ve seen @sadfishkid​‘s art myself, so i don’t have too elaborate thoughts on them yet. Personally, age differences between two consenting adults don’t really bother me, Credence is at least 21 from what we know of him, and Newt is 29 so i don’t find their age gap too wide by conventional standards either. I like the soft, healing, and growing dynamic between Newt and Credence. I think they can really understand and help each other as they’re both people who have difficulty with social skills and interpersonal relationships in different ways. I’d prefer for Credence to have a period of recovery before engaging in a romantic relationship, and for me his relationship with Newt starts as platonic either way. If that friendship were to turn into a romantic one later on, i’d be okay with that. It would be a healthy and supportive relationship as far as i can tell.

people on here romanticize the romаnov children so much and its so fucking weird like yeah u know i agree that mowing children down with machine guns bc of who their parents are is wrong and i dont think that should have happened but the way theyre portrayed and remembered makes me so supremely uncomfortable…… can we instead romanticize the jewish children killed in pogroms so that maybe some of you freaks will actually start to care about the people autocratic monarchy destroyed instead of a couple of obscenely wealthy princesses? :)))

Do you have any tips with making friends on Tumblr? I'm so lonely :( Every time I talk to a simblr it's always too business-y and very professional. I've been trying to get the chat on through asks but I never get a reply. And I'm very awkward. Maybe my messages are too awkward. I think I'm too weird and stupid for this community :(

hey anon :-( don’t be discouraged!! lots of people (including me) say omg make friends it’s fun - and it’s easier said than done tbh. i recommend talking to mutuals like someone you can almost feel the chemistry with (you like each others posts) and start out by commenting or sending them asks. then progress to messaging and stuff!! good luck and you are definitely not stupid :-(

anonymous asked:

But doesn't it make you think that Dan is going out of his way to promote this new ship in a way that he never did with Phil? Even when he likes phanart it's never "shippy art", but with Anthony it is. And I know there's nothing between them, but it makes me wonder why he doesn't do the same w/ Phil. Is it bc Phil is the one who's uncomfortable or maybe Dan isn't as attracted to Phil as we thought? Bc even though Anthony is straight, Dan is clearly attracted to him and idk it makes me feel weird

You are projecting a whole lot here, anon. 

Dan is not ‘promoting a new ship.’ Dan is promoting a video that he was in. The video was about himself and Anthony. The promotion involves himself and Anthony. Two people working together is not inherently a ship. Is fandom having fun with Dan and Anthony being two pretty people who made a video together? Absolutely. Does that mean you need to feel worried or threatened on Phil’s behalf? No. There is nothing Dan is doing right now that wouldn’t be completely normal if it was Phil, from the perspective of youtubers doing their job.

Dan does likes art with himself and Phil all the time. They made entire tumblr tag videos in which they showed art. They included art in their books. All of that was about the two of them. Even if Dan were liking explicitly shipping fanart from the collab, it would be because everyone in this situation is an adult with a sense of humor. But I’ve yet to see Dan like anything involving himself and Anthony that isn’t a direct recreation of a moment in the collab, which is something that happens for him and Phil all the time. Even moreso; Dan regularly likes fanart of himself and Phil during moments that weren’t even on camera - stuff from private trips, based on instagrams of things they did together, etc. 

I’m not going to answer any more asks from people concerned about Dan and Anthony because frankly it’s just frustrating that people have such a narrow view of the scope here. Two guys (one of them straight) making a video together vs two guys who have shared their lives for eight years? Not that this even warrants trying to compare them, but if you did: no comparison. 

I hope this helps? But if it doesn’t, all I can say is: take a deep breath, chill out. Let people have fun with this.

does anyone else who works with drive thrus get kinda anxious/weirded out when customers leave their arms hanging out the window waiting for you? like maybe it's cause I work at a pharmacy and there's a pane of bullet proof glass and a small drawer we do business with, but it just irks me and makes me try to finish faster so their arm doesn't get tired or they complain I'm taking too long lol. I think it's weird when people are getting food too, like I don't do that haha

Just some things I want to point out about Blue Exorcist’s timeline and some theories. Spoilers ahead as it includes information from the most recent manga chapters.

So we know that Blue Night was apparently due to Satan’s “ego” sprouting as the incarnation of Gehanna.

(Which makes it somewhat confusing as to why the Demon Kings think of him as their Father when he’s younger than all of them. Technically. As a conscious being.)

However, Satan clearly had an awareness before the Blue Night. How do we know this?

Shiro retrieved the Koumaken, Kurikara, before the Blue Night.

Tatsuma and Shiro met while Mrs. Suguro was pregnant with Suguro (as in Ryuji). He was born in August so that gives us a bit of a timeline, but it’s confusing because it looks like it’s winter due there being snow all over.

Maybe it was snow in April or something?

Because another thing we know is that Yukio and Rin must have already been conceived.

How do we know this?

Because Shiro straight up tells Tatsuma that they’re going to use it to kill a kid. He got the Kurikara in preparation of destroying whatever spawn Satan produced.

So their birth was already anticipated.

(Plus, I’m assuming the pregnancy was meant to be the same length as a normal human pregnancy, though Yukio and Rin were probably born earlier than they were meant to. Because twin births are generally early.)

The Blue Night obviously happened afterward, as Tatsuma said that it was a few months later and that’s when he learned the truth about Karura. Though surprisingly it seems like it was still several months before the twins were born.

We know it was after Konekomaru and Shima were born (with Konekomaru in January and Shima in July), as Konekomaru lost the rest of his family and it’s mentioned that Shima’s eldest brother died protecting him that night. But we still have never been given a definite date as to when the Blue Night was other than it was 16 years ago.

(Again as the twins will be turning 16 on their birthday, this helps with the thought that the Night took place before their birth and that they had already been long conceived.)

So that makes me wonder all the more of what exactly went down during the Blue Night, because of its weird placement. It seems like it probably was Satan’s first incarnation “death” as he was obviously desperately looking for a new host by possessing the strongest exorcists. But what caused it?

Was it a natural degradation like what happens to the others’ host? Did Yuri have something to do with it? Maybe to protect her unborn child(ren)?

(I don’t think the anime version of their relationship will be canon due to Satan’s conception and the way he talks down about Yuri the first time we meet him. Then again, I could be wrong and he did love her. I’m highly skeptical though.)

In other words, in trying to figure out the mystery of the Blue Night and Satan and the twins’ birth, I am left with more questions than answers.

Taco- Requested

@kimberlyofficial1“Can you do a Swazz imagine. Where you guys are friends with benefits. Then one day you see him with Madison and you think they have a thing. So you get pissed and start talking play flirting with jack G because he saw them too. And idk you make up the rest”


John plays with a piece of my hair. “You should wear it natural more often.” He pulls and then lets go, the dark curl springing back into place. I press my lips to his chest softly. 

“I’ll think about it” I say and rub his stomach lightly before sitting up. I reach for my phone to check the time. “I’ve got to go, Bud” I turn around as John begins to pout. I laugh and he reaches out for my torso, but can’t reach because he’s still laying down. 

“Stay” he whines and I shake my head playfully, putting my clothes back on. “You always have to leave” 

“It’s called having a normal job” I laugh, then go to check my makeup in his bathroom mirror. I put your hair up in a bun, slip my chelsea boots on, grab my coat and head for the door to his apartment. Just as I am about to slip out, I hear his sock padded feet approaching me. 

“Have a good time at your normal job” He smiles, stretching a hand back behind his back, then rubbing his eye. 

“Have a good time having a “meeting” with Nate” I chuckle. I know that they both worked hard, but I don’t know if it was still considered a business meeting if have the time was spent rolling and the members of the meeting lived together. I reach out to wave goodbye and Swazz grabs my hand, pulling me back in. He presses his full lips onto mine and then pulls away slowly. I smirk and get out a soft “bye” before stumbling out the door and walking out to my car to get to work. 

Swazz and I have been friends almost the entire time I have lived in LA. We are completely wrong for each other. He sleeps all day, stays up late, smokes, drinks hard liquor, and wants to be a playboy loner for as long as he can. I graduated near the top of my class from USC law school, wake up early, drink coffee, and now work for one of the top music law firms in the world. Despite all this, we have become pretty great friends. I motivate him to get his shit done and he reminds me to not be so uptight about everything. We met because he had become friends with my best friends from growing up, Jack J and Jack G. So I have known him and his friends for a little while now. 

On my 25th birthday, John had stayed late after my party and after cleaning up, we got high and slept together. Since then, we had been having casual sex about twice a week, agreeing that friends with benefits was our best option. Lately though, I had been staying at his place afterwords, he had been making me breakfast and holding me for longer when we were done having sex. I wasn’t sure if we could work as a couple, I usually dated stiff, white collar, Harvard Law types and he usually dated beach babes and models. 


All of this was still running through my mind when  I left work. It was Tuesday night, Taco night. Jack G and I have a tradition where I pick him up when I get out of work on Thursdays and we hit up a different Taco place in LA. It was his turn to pick the Taco stand this week. I pull up to his apartment and honk. In a matter of moments I see the giant smile that could only belong to my best friend. 

“Hey” He kisses me on the cheek and gets in my car. 

“Hey” I smile over at him. He hooks up the aux cord and tells me where we’re headed. G is probably my best friend. I can (and do) talk to him about everything. He’s one of the only reasons I made it through law school and is always reminding me how great I am. People always say we should date, but we went out towards  the beginning of knowing each other and it just felt weird. We have always been more like siblings. Sometimes, we make out when we’re drunk though and we have a pact to get married if we are single at 45. 

Tonight, he seems off. “What’s going on Babe? I say and look over at him. 

“What?” He looks up at me, clearly out of it. 

“You good?” I laugh. “Is it Madison or work?” I ask when he seems to check out again. 

“Madi’s been off recently. I think we’re growing apart.” He sighs. “I knew it was going to happen. She’s so much younger than I am and we’ve both been so busy.” 

“But you love her so much” I look over at him as we pull off the highway. 

“Yeah, I know. We’ll have to see if things get better or worse in the next couple weeks. No decisions have to be made right now” He runs a hand through his hair and starts giving me more specific instructions and eventually we pull up to the stand. 

“Wait” I say glancing at the cars in the lot. “Isn’t that Swazz’s car?” I point at the big black car Swazz has driven since the day I met him. 

“Yeah!” Jack says and we are about to get out of the car to go surprise him when I see him get out of the car with someone G recognizes in an instant. 

“Madison?” I tilt my head and look back over at G. “I didn’t realize they were close…” 

“Neither did I” Jack sounds defeated. Madison laughs at something John says and he throws an arm around  her waist. 

“We’re getting out of here” I say as I can feel my stomach in my throat. 

“Please” G says and turns back to get one more glance 


I haven’t answered any of John’s calls the past couple of days. He and Madison may not actually be hooking up or together, but the whole situation is freaking G and I out. He has been doing his best to stay normal with Madison and has been subtly trying to get to the bottom of things, but has had little luck so far. 

Tonight is Johnson’s birthday party, the first time I will have to see Swazz or Madison since the taco fiasco. I am so nervous. G invites me over to the Jack and Jack house to help set up for tonight’s party, a surprise for Johnson. 

I am hanging balloons and Jack is in the kitchen putting groceries away. “Maybe we should make them jealous, Babe” I call from the living room. 

“What?” Jack peaks his head out from the kitchen. 

“Nothing terrible, but just some heaving flirting, maybe a little petting… If they call us out, we can call them out. Plus I always think its funny when we flirt.” 

“Madison has still been acting weird… plus, I agree that its fun when we flirt” 

“Perfect” I sigh and finish with the decorations. 


That night, the party is packed. We get so many more than we were expecting. Johnson loves every second of it and we are all having such a good time. Skate raps a few verses, Sammy sings, G does a special cover just for him. Everything is going really well. As things wind down a little , G comes up behind me. “They’re here” he nods as Swazz pours himself a drink and Madison comes through the door. 

“You ready to turn on the heat, G?” I smile up at him. 

“When is it ever turned off, Mama?” He jokes, wiggling his eyebrows. I laugh loudly and throw my hands onto his chest. His arm falls to sit around my waist. We keep talking, but draw a little more attention to ourselves. Right when G leans in close to whisper something in my ear, I can feel Swazz behind me. 

“Y/N?” His arms are crossed. He seems tense

“Yeah?” I smirk as I turn away from G. He keeps his arms around my waist as I back up into his chest. 

John rolls his eyes. “Cut it out Y/N we all know that you and G would never be like this. You’re playing” 

“Why do you care, John? Why don’t you go get some tacos or something” I raise an eyebrow and nod over towards Madison. 

“How did you find out about that?” Swazz is confused and looks up at G who turns away. 

“Taco Tuesday!”

“Oh yeah. I forgot about that. What a coincidence. Well we were just getting tacos as friends. I promise.” I look in John’s eyes and know he means it. G can sense that I want to be alone with Swazz so he goes to talk to Madison. I hope they can patch things up. 

“So what’s up then, John? Why are you going to get taco’s with my best friend’s girlfriend?” I lean against the banister. 

“My sister has been having bouts of depression and anxiety because of body image and I know that Madison went through something similar a few years ago. So I called and ask if she wanted to talk. We’ve been meeting every now and then for a little while now. Last week, Jack must have left the menu or address for the stand out because that’s where she suggested we meet. I promise I am not interested in anyone but you.” He says, approaching me. 

When he talks about his sister I frown. “I’m so sorry. I had no idea.” But by the time he finishes I can’t help but smirk, “What was that last part?” I say looking up at him as he moves closer towards me. 

“I’m not interested in anyone but you” he says softly. 

“I like the sound of that.” I say and slip my hands up into his hair and he puts his hands on my waist. 

“So how about I take you on a real date sometime and you don’t flirt with G in front of me anymore.” 

“G and I are never going to stop flirting babe. But a date would be lovely and I could work on toning it down” I chuckle and bring my lips to his. 

He pulls away and looks back into my eyes “Fine, but only because I’m crazy about you and could take G in a fight for your hand”

“Woah woah woah, Buddy” I laugh “I know I’m the most incredible person you’ve ever met but we haven’t been on a date yet. No discussing my hand.” 

“Can I hold it then?” He says and slips his rough, warm hand around my smaller, soft one. 

“Damn, you’re smooth” I chuckle and lean against his shoulder. “Now let’s get out of here.” 


SORRY THAT GOT SO LONG

I hope you liked it

I swear to Kira tho, thats exactly how I see him? In canon I mean, Like he's fucking weird but like?? Look at him? He's freakin pretty? His pale skin?? His pitch black hair??? His weird ass round eyes?? Even his dark circles??? I don't know. I can't explain it jsjsnsn Maybe its the art style where most of the characters are good looking by default even If they arent supposed to? I'm so lost here. But you get me lol

i get you yeah don’t worry, if L was actually ugly he wouldn’t have such smooth skin and nicely shaped nose and mouth and jaw. but at the same time i think obata just tried his best to make him look a bit freaky and generally not all that attractive in the dn verse?? like, WE think he’s attractive from our standpoint but if i were a dn character (besides kyoko) i wouldn’t look at him twice, you feel me? in there, he just looks weird period. but to us, we can easily navigate through his redeemable traits, too. he does definitely look attractive to us though, he was very much so in so many scenes in the anime, and don’t even get me talking about first!L… which is the same L (though it is believed to be his original design, and they changed him cuz they later figured they wanted him to look as unorthodox as possible) there’s a reason why L is THE most praised character in death note, for certain.

I gotta get this off my chest, so here it goes. I know I complained way too many times about Otayuri but it reached a level where these characters don’t exist without each other.

Why is Yuri smiling at his phone? “Otabek sent him a cute selfie”.

Why is Otabek smiling at a cat? “It reminds him of Yuri”.

I ship too, not Otayuri, but plenty other pairings and it’s cute to make headcanons about the characters together. However, for these characters, especially Yuri Plisetsky, it’s hard to find anything at all that’s about themselves.

Why is Yuri smiling at his phone? “After buying his grandpa a smartphone, he sent a shaky selfie of himself next to the TV which had Yuri’s performance on”.

I don’t want to sound uppity, I just want these two characters to have individuality. Yuri’s character was pretty much absorbed in Otayuri. After they declared their friendship, farewell headcanons that don’t involve Otabek. There’s so much to explore about these two. Completely separate from each other.

It’s a weird phenomena for me because I’ve never seen a ship get this huge that it kills its own components. I’ve seen intense USUK shipping in Hetalia and KilluGon in HxH. Still, there is no unavoidable codependency. You could find art and theories that didn’t involve coupling. With Otayuri fans just jump to it. They don’t take a second to think about anything else, maybe even involving another character. I’ve honestly never seen a pairing that’s as bad for the characters that make it as Otayuri.

Please don’t give up on the Voltron fandom. 

I know that’s a big thing to say right now and I really have no real influence or voice over anyone, heck no one may read this, but hear me out. This fandom has a ton of people acting like little shits, i’m not gonna sugar coat that. I think it’s a lot of young people that are in the same boat as me, getting heavily involved in a fandom for the first time, and they are stuck in that bubble you put yourself in online and they say what they want and what they feel and don’t think about it any further. But that’s about as far as excuses go because there’s no ignoring that people can be assholes and it only takes a few to ruin things for everyone else. 

We’ve been learning that since kindergarten, though, haven’t we? There’s always gonna be people taking what they want and not caring about how they get it or how it affects people. There’s always people making things toxic without any remorse for the poisons they leave behind. There’s always a voice spouting horrible things over the many smaller voices of everyone else. Maybe i’m naive in thinking that people will keep that in mind, that staying is worth more than the task of trying over and over again to ignore the toxicity, but i’m not giving up. 

Voltron has brought me so many positive things. It’s weird even writing it because it’s a cartoon, that’s only had two seasons, that at its roots is a relatively simple story about growing up and doing what you have to do for the better. But like, I don’t care because it makes me happy. The art, the fucking amazing pieces of literature that I have read this past year have changed me. Honestly, I’ve cried, i’ve laughed, i’ve dreamt about fanworks that i’ve experienced and that may seem insignificant or silly to other people outside of this semi-reality I have created for myself here, but I won’t forget that. I won’t forget the nights i’ve stayed up reading fanfics to forget about my own problems. I won’t forget about the art that’s inspired me to be a better artist. 

I know this latest occurrence involves legal issues and faith or anyone’s words mean little, but hopefully this can be resolved and when it does, people stay. Because the show deserves that, the people behind the show deserve it, and you all deserve it. All you lovely artists, creators, memers, people that just love this show for some inexplicable reasons and question your sanity because of it, you deserve to be happy. I have dwindling faith for just about everything else in my life, as i’m sure most of you do. So, I don’t wanna give up on one of the small things that make the days okay. And yeah, it’s just Voltron, but this is what i’m into at this specific point in my life, and that will change eventually, but being totally cliche and predictable right now, the now is the now so I care about it. 

Try not to let a few people take that from you, cause they are always gonna be there.

Also PSA, in case you weren’t aware. Lance Mcclain is a superstar and should be protected at all costs. So should people’s jobs and well being so if you see any of the images that have been circling around please dont spread them. Thats the most important thing right now.

-MCK, out!

Ok. So this is not the first time Maas has used the word “god” to describe Dorian and his magic. But what I find interesting is that in EOS, Rowan uses his magic to shield Dorian’s magic from being detected by Gavriel and Fenrys. Rowan also mentions that Dorian will be someone to watch/fear because he looks harmless, but his mind is always calculating. 

With those points in mind, does anyone else think that maybe our dear Dorian has been shielding his magic for longer than we’ve been led to assume? Meaning:

Does anyone think the Rumple-was-meant-to-be-the-Saviour reveal has been planned...

maybe not from the very beginning, but for a long while? Because I kind of get the impression it’s something they worked in a while back to help explain who Rumple is, the weird, mixed up contradictoriness of him.

Thoughts?
