meaning of hidden things

anonymous asked:

If they could, the "crits" would demand a flashing neon sign saying "THEY'RE STILL THE VILLAINS" everytime the Diamonds shed a tear or if Pink Diamond happens to be a childish but less cruel than her sisters/kin. Even more insulting & mind-boggling is their claim that enjoying these fictional characters is like liking real life dictators/monsters with human skin. Honestly, they're no different than the moral panic parents back in the 80's/90's.

honestly when you get down to it half of su critical is just taking shit on the show waaaay too seriously, and it just gets painful to listen to

Reinhardt and the Griffin

OK so, one thing bothered me watching the “Honor and Glory” Overwatch short, why is the animal on Reinhardt’s armor different?

In every other time we’ve seen Reinhardt, his symbol, which was always on his armor’s left forearm and etched into his hammer, was a lion. Which is a great symbol for Reinhardt, but in the short it wasn’t a lion at all.

It’s a Griffin. Which got me thinking, why is it a griffin?

In Germanic heraldry, a griffin is meant to symbolize courage, militaristic strength and leadership, as well as boldness, and are always allured by powerful, fearsome monsters. Griffins are meant to symbolize the amalgamated strengths and weaknesses of its halves, the Lion and the Eagle.

In heraldry, the Lion (King of beasts) was symbolized by courage, strength, nobility, and valor. Whereas the Eagle (King of the skies) also symbolizes courage and valor, as well as vision, intellect, and immortality.

In the short, I believe the griffin represents Reinhardt. A powerful and courageous leader, but bold, and blinded by glory and the search of a good challenge. He was overzealous, he charged in to combat, leaving his team behind, so he could revel in his own glory, he was selfish.

But he changed, and we saw the change happen.

When Reinhardt agreed to leave Balderich to hold off the omnics, and to go defend his team, He was no longer blinded by glory, or the pursuit of a fearsome enemy for him to overcome, he was humbled, he was grounded.

At this moment, Reinhardt was no longer a griffin, he was no longer blinded by glory or chasing a challenge, his head was no longer in the clouds, the eagle of Reinhardt’s griffin left him at that moment, and he was left as the courageous, but humble lion we know him as today.

Hey, lurker here. So in light of the nasty comments the Fanboys™ have sent to various people related to and working on Star Wars about us(the female Reylo shippers most predominantly), I’m just gonna leave this here, from the official Star Wars Instagram account just a few hours ago;)
(Might not be the first to post about this, but hadn’t seen it yet here)

remember how akaashi told tsukishima that bokuto doesn’t get worried or nervous when facing strong opponents…

i find it super cute in ch. 250 with the difference between akaashi’s and bokuto’s reaction to aran’s spike. bokuto gets excited, praises aran’s skills and says “i won’t lose to him!” while akaashi’s thoughts are “i wouldn’t want to face them…”

It's Too Late

So I watched Sean play passpartout and I checked his tumblr when I saw this post on his tumblr.

Now they are right, we aren’t able to see the gauges or seans ears at all due to the size of his headphones. I noticed something while watching passpartout and ill post the screenshots from the vid. 

Look at what Sean is wearing. Now I swear I’ve that outfit before but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Oh yeah I remember, he uploaded a picture to instagram almost a week ago.

Coincidence? I think not! Sean has been posting anti shit for a while and the fact that he wore that specific outfit, on a day with so much more Anti hype than usual amd he even reblogged a post about the gauges being hidden by headphones means one thing. 

That was Anti who played passpartout. Sean even posted a tweet about getting the hang of breathing and we can all assume that was anti too. Anti has been here, passing himself off as sean. 

One more thing to secure this in place, the title of the passpartout video. 

It is the end of a legend. The end of sean. Anti is in control now.

Ragnar Lothbrok: The Mastermind

INTJs live in the world of ideas and strategic planning. They value intelligence, knowledge, and competence, and typically have high standards in these regards, which they continuously strive to fulfill. To a somewhat lesser extent, they have similar expectations of others. INTJs focus their energy on observing the world, and generating ideas and possibilities. Their mind constantly gathers information and makes associations about it. They are tremendously insightful and usually are very quick to understand new ideas. However, their primary interest is not understanding a concept, but rather applying that concept in a useful way.

INTJs are natural leaders, although they usually choose to remain in the background until they see a real need to take over the lead. When they are in leadership roles, they are quite effective, because they are able to objectively see the reality of a situation, and are adaptable enough to change things which aren’t working well. They are the supreme strategists - always scanning available ideas and concepts and weighing them against their current strategy, to plan for every conceivable contingency. INTJs spend a lot of time inside their own minds, and may have little interest in the other people’s thoughts or feelings. Unless their Feeling side is developed, they may have problems giving other people the level of intimacy that is needed. (Personality Page)


Lagertha: The Guardian

ESTJs live in a world of facts and concrete needs. They live in the present, with their eye constantly scanning their personal environment to make sure that everything is running smoothly and systematically. They honor traditions and laws, and have a clear set of standards and beliefs. They expect the same of others, and have no patience or understanding of individuals who do not value these systems. They value competence and efficiency, and like to see quick results for their efforts.

ESTJs are take-charge people. They have such a clear vision of the way that things should be, that they naturally step into leadership roles. They are self-confident and aggressive. They are extremely talented at devising systems and plans for action, and at being able to see what steps need to be taken to complete a specific task. They can sometimes be very demanding and critical, because they have such strongly held beliefs, and are likely to express themselves without reserve if they feel someone isn’t meeting their standards. But at least their expressions can be taken at face-value, because the ESTJ is extremely straight-forward and honest. (Personality Page)


Floki: The Dreamer

INFPs, more than other iNtuitive Feeling types, are focused on making the world a better place for people. Their primary goal is to find out their meaning in life. What is their purpose? How can they best serve humanity in their lives? They are idealists and perfectionists, who drive themselves hard in their quest for achieving the goals they have identified for themselves. INFPs are flexible and laid-back, until one of their values is violated. In the face of their value system being threatened, INFPs can become aggressive defenders, fighting passionately for their cause. When an INFP has adopted a project or job which they’re interested in, it usually becomes a “cause” for them. Although they are not detail-oriented individuals, they will cover every possible detail with determination and vigor when working for their “cause”.

INFPs are highly intuitive about people. They rely heavily on their intuitions to guide them, and use their discoveries to constantly search for value in life. They are on a continuous mission to find the truth and meaning underlying things. Every encounter and every piece of knowledge gained gets sifted through the INFP’s value system, and is evaluated to see if it has any potential to help the INFP define or refine their own path in life. (Personality Page)


Rollo: The Doer

ESTPs are outgoing, straight-shooting types. Enthusiastic and excitable, ESTPs are “doers” who live in the world of action. Blunt, straight-forward risk-takers, they are willing to plunge right into things and get their hands dirty. They live in the here-and-now, and place little importance on introspection or theory. The look at the facts of a situation, quickly decide what should be done, execute the action, and move on to the next thing.

They typically makes things up as they go along, rather than following a plan. They love to have fun, and are fun people to be around. They can sometimes be hurtful to others without being aware of it, as they generally do not know and may not care about the effect their words have on others. It’s not that they don’t care about people, it’s that their decision-making process does not involve taking people’s feelings into account. They make decisions based on facts and logic. ESTP’s least developed area is their intuitive side. They are impatient with theory, and see little use for it in their quest to “get things done”. An ESTP will occasionally have strong intuitions which are often way off-base, but sometimes very lucid and positive. The ESTP does not trust their instincts, and is suspicious of other people’s intuition as well. (Personality Page)


Princess Aslaug: The Protector

INFJs are gentle, caring, complex and highly intuitive individuals. Artistic and creative, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities. INFJs place great importance on having things orderly and systematic in their outer world. They put a lot of energy into identifying the best system for getting things done, and constantly define and re-define the priorities in their lives. On the other hand, INFJs operate within themselves on an intuitive basis which is entirely spontaneous. They know things intuitively, without being able to pinpoint why, and without detailed knowledge of the subject at hand. They are usually right, and they usually know it. Consequently, INFJs put a tremendous amount of faith into their instincts and intuitions. 

INFJs have uncanny insight into people and situations. They get “feelings” about things and intuitively understand them. Most INFJs are protective of their inner selves, sharing only what they choose to share when they choose to share it. They are deep, complex individuals, who are quite private and typically difficult to understand. INFJs hold back part of themselves, and can be secretive. Because the INFJ has such strong intuitive capabilities, they trust their own instincts above all else. This may result in an INFJ stubborness and tendency to ignore other people’s opinions. They believe that they’re right. On the other hand, INFJ is a perfectionist who doubts that they are living up to their full potential. INFJs are rarely at complete peace with themselves - there’s always something else they should be doing to improve themselves and the world around them. (Personality Page)


Bjorn Ironside: The Performer

ESFPs have very strong inter-personal skills, and may find themselves in the role of the peacemaker frequently. Since they make decisions by using their personal values, they are usually very sympathetic and concerned for other people’s well-being. They’re usually quite generous and warm. They are very observant about other people, and seem to sense what is wrong with someone before others might, responding warmly with a solution to a practical need. They might not be the best advice-givers in the world, because they dislike theory and future-planning, but they are great for giving practical care.

ESFPs love people, and everybody loves an ESFP. One of their greatest gifts is their general acceptance of everyone. They are upbeat and enthusiastic, and genuinely like almost everybody. An ESFP is unfailingly warm and generous with their friends, and they generally treat everyone as a friend. However, once crossed, an ESFP is likely to make a very strong and stubborn judgment against the person who crossed them. They are capable of deep dislike in such a situation. ESFPs usually like to feel strongly bonded with other people, and have a connection with animals and small children that is not found in most other types. (Personality Page)


Athelstan: The Thinker

INTPs live in the world of theoretical possibilities. They see everything in terms of how it could be improved, or what it could be turned into. They live primarily inside their own minds, having the ability to analyze difficult problems, identify patterns, and come up with logical explanations. They seek clarity in everything, and are therefore driven to build knowledge. They are the “absent-minded professors”, who highly value intelligence and the ability to apply logic to theories to find solutions. They typically are so strongly driven to turn problems into logical explanations, that they live much of their lives within their own heads, and may not place as much importance or value on the external world. Their natural drive to turn theories into concrete understanding may turn into a feeling of personal responsibility to solve theoretical problems, and help society move towards a higher understanding.

For the INTP, it is extremely important that ideas and facts are expressed correctly and succinctly. They are likely to express themselves in what they believe to be absolute truths. Sometimes, their well thought-out understanding of an idea is not easily understandable by others, but the INTP is not naturally likely to tailor the truth so as to explain it in an understandable way to others. INTPs do not like to lead or control people. They’re very tolerant and flexible in most situations, unless one of their firmly held beliefs has been violated or challenged, in which case they may take a very rigid stance. The INTP is likely to be very shy when it comes to meeting new people. On the other hand, the INTP is very self-confident and gregarious around people they know well, or when discussing theories which they fully understand. (Personality Page)


King Ecbert: The Commander

ENTJs are natural born leaders. They live in a world of possibilities where they see all sorts challenges to be surmounted, and they want to be the ones responsible for surmounting them. They have a drive for leadership, which is well-served by their quickness to grasp complexities, their ability to absorb a large amount of impersonal information, and their quick and decisive judgments. They are “take charge” people. ENTJs are very forceful, decisive individuals. They make decisions quickly, and are quick to verbalize their opinions and decisions to the rest of the world. 

There is not much room for error in the world of the ENTJ. They dislike to see mistakes repeated, and have no patience with inefficiency. They may become quite harsh when their patience is tried in these respects, because they are not naturally tuned in to people’s feelings, and more than likely don’t believe that they should tailor their judgments in consideration for people’s feelings. Although ENTJs are not naturally tuned into other people’s feelings, these individuals frequently have very strong sentimental streaks. Often these sentiments are very powerful to the ENTJ, although they will likely hide it from general knowledge, believing the feelings to be a weakness. Because the world of feelings and values is not where the ENTJ naturally functions, they may sometimes make value judgments and hold onto submerged emotions which are ill-founded and inappropriate, and will cause them problems - sometimes rather serious problems. (Personality Page)


Helga: The Artist

ISFPs live in the world of sensation possibilities. They are keenly in tune with the way things look, taste, sound, feel and smell. They have a strong set of values, which they strive to consistently meet in their lives. They need to feel as if they’re living their lives in accordance with what they feel is right, and will rebel against anything which conflicts with that goal. They’re likely to choose jobs and careers which allow them the freedom of working towards the realization of their value-oriented personal goals. ISFPs tend to be quiet and reserved, and difficult to get to know well. They hold back their ideas and opinions except from those who they are closest to. They are likely to be kind, gentle and sensitive in their dealings with others. They are interested in contributing to people’s sense of well-being and happiness, and will put a great deal of effort and energy into tasks which they believe in.

They’re original and independent, and need to have personal space. They value people who take the time to understand the ISFP, and who support the ISFP in pursuing their goals in their own, unique way. People who don’t know them well may see their unique way of life as a sign of carefree light-heartedness, but the ISFP actually takes life very seriously, constantly gathering specific information and shifting it through their value systems, in search for clarification and underlying meaning. ISFPs are extremely perceptive and aware of others. They constantly gather specific information about people, and seek to discover what it means. They are usually penetratingly accurate in their perceptions of others. ISFPs are warm and sympathetic. They genuinely care about people, and are strongly service-oriented in their desire to please. They have an unusually deep well of caring for those who are close to them, and are likely to show their love through actions, rather than words. (Personality Page)


Judith: The Visionary

With Extraverted Intuition dominating their personality, the ENTP’s primary interest in life is understanding the world that they live in. They are constantly absorbing ideas and images about the situations they are presented in their lives. Using their intuition to process this information, they are usually extremely quick and accurate in their ability to size up a situation. This ability to intuitively understand people and situations puts the ENTP at a distinct advantage in their lives. They generally understand things quickly and with great depth. ENTPs are idea people. 

Their perceptive abilities cause them to see possibilities everywhere. They get excited and enthusiastic about their ideas, and are able to spread their enthusiasm to others. In this way, they get the support that they need to fulfill their visions. ENTPs are fluent conversationalists, mentally quick, and enjoy verbal sparring with others. They love to debate issues, and may even switch sides sometimes just for the love of the debate. When they express their underlying principles, however, they may feel awkward and speak abruptly and intensely. ENTPs are less interested in developing plans of actions or making decisions than they are in generating possibilities and ideas. (Personality Page)


Siggy Haraldson: The Caregiver

ESFJs are people persons - they love people. They are warmly interested in others. They use their Sensing and Judging characteristics to gather specific, detailed information about others, and turn this information into supportive judgments. They want to like people, and have a special skill at bringing out the best in others. They are extremely good at reading others, and understanding their point of view. The ESFJ’s strong desire to be liked and for everything to be pleasant makes them highly supportive of others. People like to be around ESFJs, because the ESFJ has a special gift of invariably making people feel good about themselves.

The ESFJ takes their responsibilities very seriously, and is very dependable. They value security and stability, and have a strong focus on the details of life. They see before others do what needs to be done, and do whatever it takes to make sure that it gets done. They enjoy these types of tasks, and are extremely good at them. With Extraverted Feeling dominating their personality, ESFJs are focused on reading other people. They have a strong need to be liked, and to be in control. They are extremely good at reading others, and often change their own manner to be more pleasing to whoever they’re with at the moment. (Personality Page)


Princess Gisla: The Giver

ENFJs are people-focused individuals. They live in the world of people possibilities. More so than any other type, they have excellent people skills. They understand and care about people, and have a special talent for bringing out the best in others. ENFJ’s main interest in life is giving love, support, and a good time to other people. They are focused on understanding, supporting, and encouraging others. They make things happen for people, and get their best personal satisfaction from this. Because ENFJ’s people skills are so extraordinary, they have the ability to make people do exactly what they want them to do. They get under people’s skins and get the reactions that they are seeking. ENFJ’s motives are usually unselfish, but ENFJs who have developed less than ideally have been known to use their power over people to manipulate them.

ENFJ’s tend to be more reserved about exposing themselves than other extraverted types. Although they may have strongly-felt beliefs, they’re likely to refrain from expressing them if doing so would interfere with bringing out the best in others. Because their strongest interest lies in being a catalyst of change in other people, they’re likely to interact with others on their own level, in a chameleon-like manner, rather than as individuals. Which is not to say that the ENFJ does not have opinions. ENFJs have definite values and opinions which they’re able to express clearly and succinctly. These beliefs will be expressed as long as they’re not too personal. ENFJs have a strong need for close, intimate relationships, and will put forth a lot of effort in creating and maintaining these relationships. They’re very loyal and trustworthy once involved in a relationship. (Personality Page)


Ivar The Boneless: The Inspirer

ENFPs live in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. Their enthusiasm lends them the ability to inspire and motivate others, more so than we see in other types. They can talk their way in or out of anything. They love life, seeing it as a special gift, and strive to make the most out of it. An ENFP who has “gone wrong” may be quite manipulative - and very good it. The gift of gab which they are blessed with makes it naturally easy for them to get what they want. Most ENFPs will not abuse their abilities, because that would not jive with their value systems. ENFPs sometimes make serious errors in judgment. They have an amazing ability to intuitively perceive the truth about a person or situation, but when they apply judgment to their perception, they may jump to the wrong conclusions.

To onlookers, the ENFP may seem directionless and without purpose, but ENFPs are actually quite consistent, in that they have a strong sense of values which they live with throughout their lives. Everything that they do must be in line with their values. An ENFP needs to feel that they are living their lives as their true Self, walking in step with what they believe is right. They see meaning in everything, and are on a continuous quest to adapt their lives and values to achieve inner peace. They’re constantly aware and somewhat fearful of losing touch with themselves. Since emotional excitement is usually an important part of the ENFP’s life, and because they are focused on keeping “centered”, the ENFP is usually an intense individual. (Personality Page)


Ubbe: The Defender

ISFJs live in a world that is concrete and kind. They are truly warm and kind-hearted, and want to believe the best of people. They value harmony and cooperation, and are likely to be very sensitive to other people’s feelings. People value the ISFJ for their consideration and awareness, and their ability to bring out the best in others by their firm desire to believe the best. More so than other types, ISFJs are extremely aware of their own internal feelings, as well as other people’s feelings. They do not usually express their own feelings, keeping things inside. If they are negative feelings, they may build up inside the ISFJ until they turn into firm judgments against individuals which are difficult to unseed, once set. Many ISFJs learn to express themselves, and find outlets for their powerful emotions.

ISFJs have a very clear idea of the way things should be, which they strive to attain. They value security and kindness, and respect traditions and laws. They tend to believe that existing systems are there because they work. Therefore, they’re not likely to buy into doing things in a new way, unless they’re shown in a concrete way why its better than the established method. The ISFJ feels a strong sense of responsibility and duty. They take their responsibilities very seriously, and can be counted on to follow through. For this reason, people naturally tend to rely on them. The ISFJ has a difficult time saying “no” when asked to do something, and may become over-burdened. (Personality Page)


Princess Kwenthrith: The Inspector

ISTJs are quiet and reserved individuals who are interested in security and peaceful living. They have a strongly-felt internal sense of duty, which lends them a serious air and the motivation to follow through on tasks. Organized and methodical in their approach, they can generally succeed at any task which they undertake. ISTJs are very loyal, faithful, and dependable. They place great importance on honesty and integrity. 

ISTJs have tremendous respect for facts. They hold a tremendous store of facts within themselves, which they have gathered through their Sensing preference. They may have difficulty understanding a theory or idea which is different from their own perspective. However, if they are shown the importance or relevance of the idea to someone who they respect or care about, the idea becomes a fact, which the ISTJ will internalize and support. Once the ISTJ supports a cause or idea, he or she will stop at no lengths to ensure that they are doing their duty of giving support where support is needed. Under stress, ISTJs may fall into “catastrophe mode”, where they see nothing but all of the possibilities of what could go wrong. They will berate themselves for things which they should have done differently, or duties which they failed to perform. They will lose their ability to see things calmly and reasonably, and will depress themselves with their visions of doom. (Personality Page)

Happy Birthday, Charles Darwin

Born February 12, 1809, Charles Darwin revolutionized science and the culture around it.  On 24 November 1859 Charles Darwin published his monumental work On The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, changing the face of biology. Although he only used the word once at the very end of the book, the word evolve (and evolution) is synonymous with Darwin. The word evolve had been used in a scientific sense specifically in biology for over a hundred years before Darwin wrote Origin of Species-which is one reason why he avoided it. By the mid 1850s, the word had connotations of perfectibility-something Darwin wanted to avoid. It was the last sentence of his book:

There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.

The word evolution arrived in English in 1620 and comes from the Latin word evolutionem(nomnative form evolutio) meaning the unrolling of a book or revealing that which was rolled up. The word evolve arrived a bit later in the 1640s from the Latin word evolvere meaning to unroll and could also pertain to other ‘hidden’ things (see also for example the etymology of vulva), but mostly meant books, when a ‘volume’ was a rolled up manuscript made from vellum. The modern meaning that scientists such ad Darwin meant for it began around 1832 and reached its first full expression in Darwin’s work.

Happy Birthday to Charles Darwin, born on this day, 1809.  

No offense but I’m so unironically excited for Hiveswap. I miss the writing style, and the humor, and the levels upon levels of hidden meanings to things that Homestuck had that I can’t enjoy anymore from the comic. I miss the fun fanbase, back when it wasn’t so horrible. I miss being able to consume large, complex stories that I could only read bc of the interactive way it was written in. Hiveswap may not be as big as Homestuck, but I’m really excited to see new fans, and a smaller, more condensed version of the fandom maybe 2 or 3 years ago.

anonymous asked:

Please consider Akira calling a s/o that happens to be another Phantom Thief 'my Treasure'. Everyone take different amounts of times to realize the double meaning and reacts differently.

Ohhh this sounds fun lmaooo. Thanks for the request! Enjoy!


Ryuji:

  • Someone tell him.
  • He’s not very adept at reading between the lines; he’d rather take everything at face value.
  • When he heard Akira call S/O his ‘Treasure’, he thought it was just a cutesy nickname. No big deal.
  • No one tells him because they want to keep it an inside joke, so he’s the last to figure it out.
  • He’ll understand at the most inopportune time, like when a Palace is exploding or something.
  • “Ohhh, I getcha, it’s ‘cause S/O’s-”
  • “Shut up and run, Skull!”


Ann:

  • Ann takes a little bit of time to catch on.
  • Maybe a few days.
  • She’ll probably get it when they all hang out and Akira calls S/O ‘my Treasure’ again.
  • When she understands the double meaning, she thinks it’s really sweet and she’ll tease Akira about it.
  • “Awww, Akira! I didn’t know you were so deep! You should learn from him, Ryuji.”
  • “H-huh?!”


Yusuke:

  • Yusuke is very good at discerning the hidden meaning behind things once he introspects.
  • When Joker calls S/O ‘my Treasure’, it would take him a couple of minutes to fully ponder it.
  • He’ll smile to himself when it clicks.
  • “Ah, I see. It is a lovely nickname, indeed. As expected of our Leader.”
  • Whenever Joker calls S/O that, Yusuke will just snicker to himself and smile knowingly. 
  • He’ll mull over names that will top that because he wants to be deep too.
  • Him and the others exchange smirks.


Makoto:

  • Of course Makoto will understand the connection instantly.
  • She’ll most definitely roll her eyes.
  • But she’ll be fighting back a grin the whole time.
  • Makoto might even blush if Akira’s really laying it on thick.
  • “Uh, Akira, we’re all standing right here, you know. Geez.”
  • She’s kind of jealous; she hopes she can have a relationship like that some day. you’re a Treasure too Makoto


Futaba:

  • The first person Futaba looks at is Makoto, and they both smugly nod at each other.
  • They understand at the same time. It’s like telepathy.
  • “Too bad Inari’s too shallow to get it.”
  • “I beg your pardon?!” 
  • Futaba will probably high five Akira for thinking of it, but she’ll fake gag if he excessively dotes on S/O while calling them ‘my Treasure’.
  • “Cut it out, Akira! You’re making Ryuji jealous.” she takes no prisoners
  • She’s very happy for Akira and S/O though.


Haru:

  • Haru will only understand when she realizes that there’s something she’s not getting.
  • For instance, when she sees Makoto and Futaba exchange glances, she’ll perceive that there must be a hidden meaning behind Akira referring to S/O as ‘my Treasure’. she’s a smart girl
  • Haru’s a lot like Yusuke in that regard.
  • She’ll get stars in her eyes and she’ll gasp while putting her hands over her mouth. 
  • “Oh! How romantic.”
  • Haru and everyone else are just so supportive and happy for Akira and he deserves them.

seriously that hidden website and those hidden messages and shit.. (if you dont know what im talking about click here) does anyone else feel like theres like a 1% chance that thats flug talking to “agents” and trying to get black hat taken down? i dont wanna believe that but thats what it felt like when i read it all

i mean alan has said that flug IS evil and that he doesnt want anyone thinking differently, but maybe thats just to throw people off? i dunno i have too much time on my hands

but hear me out here, in the lemongrab episode, black hat yelled at flug about seeing affection on the screen and wanting it gone, meaning that flug controls the videos and you know what most likely edits them too cus who else is gonna do it right?? and in the hidden files, the writer clearly says that they put those hints into the videos to get these “agents” attention and get them to the hidden website!

i mean?? i dont know if im just overthinking things or if im right about this??? please talk to me about this im so invested in this show its starting to get sad

I want everyone in the phandom to do something for me. This is important!

I want you to expect nothing. I know this sounds ridiculous, and I’m not trying to stop your conspiracy theories. I do, however, want you to stop expecting everything to be a big thing. I don’t say this to be rude. I would love for everything dnp did to be a big (positive) thing. But, sometimes, there is no hidden meaning. Sometimes, things are exactly as they seem.

I say this because, when you expect nothing, then something- anything- is a pleasant surprise. Everything they do or say lately, you guys take it up about 500 notches, then when something happens that’s about 10 notches, everyone is disappointed. Imagine how awesome things would be if you just accepted news as it came, and didn’t let it give you anxiety or spend every extra moment waiting for some huge revelation.

I’m not saying to not get excited over things. I’m super excited for their joint liveshow on Thursday. But, some of the things I’ve seen from people is kind of distressing. You’re letting yourselves get freaked out over nothing. They might have something to reveal, they might not. But, if you’re expecting them to say they’re married, have a dog, and bought a house on a hill somewhere no one can ever find them- you’re going to be disappointed. However, if you have no real expectations, then them saying the phrase “we’re going on a little trip to Scotland” is going to be really fucking exciting.

This post is not for the people just casually talking about this stuff, but for the people I’ve seen today that are talking about actually having anxiety over this. It’s for the people who have decided- 100% for sure- that they’re coming out. You’re going to be disappointed. Just enjoy whatever this is for whatever it is. Expect nothing. 

Chill.

Halfway Home

Everyone, I am very glad to say I’m halfway through my new script. And it is analytical, educational, focused, and shows examples of points being made. It is entirely on spooky and how to achieve spooky and why spooky works.

And the other half is all about the kind of ‘hidden meanings & symbols’ fun I bring to things like Wham City Comedy work.

You’re gonna get a single video that’s half breakdown of fear and its mechanics, and half artistic interpretation and symbol puzzle-cracking. All on the same topic.

I am so, so happy to be back in business. This is the best possible topic and approach to come back with and really sets the tone for some things I want to achieve this year.

this is a reach but

do you think Sun & Moon is targeted towards international fans?
like,,,

“When my moon rises, your sun rises”

This could represent the different time zones since international fans don’t live in South Korea (shocker)

“When will I see you again, at the end of a long journey, want to be together”

This could represent how they sometimes go abroad (the long journey) to meet the fans but when they come back home they want to see us again.

“The two of us are just like one”

This line could potentially represent how NCTzens empower NCT and give them the energy to perform, and they in turn, empower us; make us feel happy.
This also could link to the lines: “Even if it’s a different space, that my hands can’t reach you, I can still feel you” showing how our compliments and love for NCT doesn’t go unnoticed and even though we aren’t with them often, they still feel the love we have for them.

But that’s just a random theory I had haha
