more of this next season please!

This is not a hiatus

I just want to let you guys know that I’m likely to be far more inactive over the next few weeks than i usually am. I am not going on Hiatus, I will still be posting things and I will still answer any asks/ messages that you guys send in although it may take me a little longer to reply (pleASE don’t think this means you can’t ask/pm me because you absolutely can) 

The only reason I’m doing this is I’ve just entered  exam season *cries* and apparently revision is a thing. However after the 24th May I will be back to irrationally prioritising this blog over everything else in my life, promise.

Hi I just wanted to thank you. Your work is amazing and I admire your persistance and ability to set limits and keep up to them. Please don't get stressed by other readers and their yearning for more. You and your work is enpugh and others should respect your boundries. :heart:

Thank you! And don’t worry, I won’t get too stressed out. I love that everyone is so enthusiastic about the next chapter and the support is wonderful, it’s just right now during exam season I really can’t give any good estimate of when I can write the next chapter. But I will absolutely let everyone know as soon as I know and I’m very excited to write again so trust me when I say I’m going to do it as soon as I can 

on allura and the castleship

So like the show often stresses that Allura is needed in the castle to run it, since it’s linked up to her quintessence. Coran seems to be able to pilot it to an extent in a fix (like when Allura and Keith ran off in that pod), but it looks like the castle doesn’t have its full range of weapons and abilities without her. Including wormholing, which is like. A really big deal.

With Shiro likely to be gone from the team for at least a little while, we’re probably going to need someone to pilot one of the lions. But with all that about Allura and the castle in mind, the question is: can Allura actually pilot a lion at all?

It turns out we might actually already have an answer: it depends on Slav. Because the castleship’s probably going to get some sort of an upgrade next season.

Slav’s already shown shitting on the castle during his first scene in it, which is a fun hint of what could be coming. Allura and Coran have said it several times throughout the series: the castle’s old. Its technology is almost definitely outdated, if Slav’s complaints are any indication, and it breaks down often, to the point where it doing so is a major plot point in season 2. Compared to its Galra counterparts, which have 10000 years worth of technological advancement on their side, the castleship is probably the equivalent of bringing like. a pointy stick to a knife fight.

But now they have the means to update it.

Aqours 1st Live - Aida Rikako’s post-live thoughts

Aqours 1st LoveLive!
Thank you very much for the past two days at ~Step! ZERO to ONE~!! It really, really was a marvelous time. I had fun from the bottom of my heart, and I’m not even exaggerating. It really was a great feeling that made me feel like I was truly alive. I cannot forget everyone’s faces that I saw while I was going around on the trolley. Everyone was shining!!
In truth, when I first heard about the results of Sunshine’s audition, I was at Yokohama Arena with my mother. I can still remember when we were embracing each other even now. It has been 2 years since then. I would never have dreamed that we would be able to stand on this stage now. Love Live! Is something that a lot of people have given their love for, and I once again felt really blessed to be able to take part in it.
I learned the real value of becoming a team and going up from 0. There were 9 of us on stage, but the stage that we created was because of the all the team members, as well as the fans.

This is all I can say!
There was a lot of love enveloping us, and it really, really became a marvelous live!!!!!! However, I have something I must apologize to everyone for. I would like to apologize for the worries that I felt. After discussing with the rest of the team, I decided to perform on the piano. I never wanted to back down, so I requested to be given the chance to do it.
And so, I really give my apologies to the rest of the team who believed in me until the end; I betrayed them. It was exactly because of that that we did not discuss the possibility of failure. Also, having made the other members feel worry in that moment, as well as all the people who had paid money to watch a professional fail, all these emotions mixed together in my head and I panicked. Somehow, I was able to complete it on Day 1, so I calmed down and decided to play with more of a smile like Riko’s on Day 2. To be honest, I cannot remember that moment very well. But the members rushed over to me during the dance, and I also heard the voices of everyone there, so I was able to stop crying and bring back out the “Sakurauchi Riko” within Aida Rikako once again. Without that, my heart would’ve surely broken, and I would’ve regretted it for the rest of my life. Thank you very much for giving me another chance. And then the lyrics of Omoi yo Hitotsu ni Nare also resonated in my chest and supported me. I was once again able to realize how great the power of music was, and that it was able to give me so much courage.

“It was really the greatest performance by everyone! I was moved!” was what I heard from a lot of people, but a failure is a failure. I am no longer qualified to be a professional standing on stage. I really reflected on it.
And after that I had to perform with a smile. Because I was no longer qualified to cry. But I was able to continue until the very end thanks to the warmth of all the fans. Thank you, thank you very much for supporting me.
Also, I will never forget the members who rushed over so that I wouldn’t be alone, and held me and my hands in that unbelievable location, all the time from before the beginning until after the very end, as well as the fun after the live as they greeted me with smiles and laughed it off. Those 8 people who were there definitely felt the same way as everyone. I was glad that it was 9 people once again. Thank so so much for saving me.
And also, I am very grateful to the piano teacher who seriously taught the amateur me who could not even read musical notes for 3 months.
It was really difficult; my fingers did not move as I expected, but I was able to slowly get better and better at playing, and I was able to think, “Playing the piano is fun!” And that was definitely thanks to the people who told me so. I started the piano from this age, so I was worried about whether it was truly okay, but I was told many times that it was important to challenge that thought.

It’s getting quite long, but I wanted to tell everyone as soon as possible.

Now, the second season of the TV anime, as well as 2nd live tour and many others were announced! Aqours is advancing from here onto the next Step once again. In order to make all of you know more and more about Aqours, I will put out my heart and try even harder than my best that I have done until now as a member of Aqours!!!
So please cheer me on as a member of Aqours and as Sakurauchi Riko from now on as well.

I will forever treasure everyone who supported me.
Let’s go and see more marvelous sights together! The voice of Sakurauchi Riko 🌸 Aida Rikako


Holy shit.

4/2 Interview with Yuzuru and Shoma after the Worlds gala. Translated by @teamjapanfstranslations

Y = Yuzuru, S = Shoma, I = Interviewers

I1: Congratulations!!

Y and S: Thank you!

I1: Hanyu-senshu. Your free was unbelievable.

Y: Thank you.

I1: After getting 5th in the short, how did you get over it and have a strong mentality for the free (literal translation: how did you switch your feelings)??

Y: I actually did not prepare myself mentally (literal translation: I did not switch my feelings), and it was my fans’ voices and the voices of support from my team that motivated me.

I don’t mean to sound preachy, but I’ve noticed that pi day has become more and more commercialized. Every year we talk less about circumference and more about servings, less about Greeks and more about gluttony. I like a slice of pie as much as the next person but this holiday is losing its roots. Please don’t forget pi tomorrow between the sugar rushes. Please don’t forget 3.141592654798255734563736565838876123….the reason for the season.

“Vixen”

If you can’t tell by now, I have small bias towards Alya Cesaire. Words cannot begin to describe my excitement for Season 2 and the debut of Alya as the real Volpina. As a character, I like Alya a lot. I dig her strong personality as well as her relationship with Marinette.
Ever since the first season I was hoping that Alya would be one of the candidates for the Fox Miraculous so when it was revealed that she will indeed become the real Volpina, I was totally stoked. I promised myself that I’d draw Volpina Alya at least once before the second season starts so here is my first attempt at painting this lovely vixen heroine.

Not bad for my first try. I had fun painting this portrait and paid a lot of attention to the detail in the piece especially in the hair. Alya’s hair is already long and luxurious, so painting dem foxy curls was cool. Definitely pleased with how this turned out and I hope to do more future squiggle paints of Volpina Alya. Really cannot wait for the appearance of this heroine in Season 2.

Enjoy this week’s miraculous squiggle painting fellow miraculers and as always, stay tune for more star kids! Til next time! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

♡ 170224 | PSA to LOVEs re: Produce 101 Season 2

LOVEs, take a deep breath with me. Everyone needs to relax and wait until you have all the facts. I have more things I need to translate but I have only slept for maybe 2 hours so far and I need to get my rest, but I need to clear up a few things before the fandom blows this even more out of proportion. 

First and foremost, the boys wanted this. Pledis released a statement in the fancafe shortly after it was announced members of NU’EST would be participating in Produce 101, and in that statement it was made very clear that the boys themselves wanted to be put on this show as they see it as an opportunity for them to make a fresh start. As fans, we need to respect their decision and support them any way we can. This is not Pledis forcing them to go to a show for trainees, this is a conscious decision on the members’ part. Please respect and understand that. I understand some of us are very worried about this, trust me, I am too, but we need to love and support the boys more than anything right now. This is how they’ve decided to take the next step in their careers, they did not make this decision easily. Please, please, understand that. 

Pledis also wants fans to understand that this has nothing to do with disbandment rumors. The boys are not disbanding and this is a publicity move and a way for the boys to give themselves a fresh start. Fresh start, not a means to an end. 

Also, keep in mind that Mnet changed the rules for this season and are accepting a good portion of idols who have already debuted because there was a shortage of male trainees to send. NU’EST is not the only currently debuted boygroup who is sending idols instead of trainees. There have been a lot of shows in Kpop in recent time that also focus on bringing more attention to underrated groups, and it appears Produce 101 S2 is going to be one of them. 

LOVEs need to be calm and supportive right now and wait to have all the answers before they start rioting. I’ve seen a lot of fits being thrown from people who either don’t speak Korean or they don’t understand the whole of the situation. I’m also seeing a lot of bitterness again and bitterness has been like a cyst on this fandom. People do not want to be a part of a fandom that looks like it’s in constant misery. People join fandom to escape from real life struggles, not to add to them. Please, do not present our fandom as a miserable, old, useless thing. We need to be welcoming to new fans and we need to keep our heads about us. 

Thank you.

See? You know what it’s like. Baseball’s all that matters.

anonymous asked:

Hi there! Do you have any compilation lists of Richonne first times one shots? Please.

Originally posted by karlaxmena

Yes, we sure do! Here is a small listing for you and our lovely followers. Most of these are set in season 6 when Richonne went canon (cue **internal squealing**), and a few stories are part of a collection of one-shots. If we come across any more we’ll be sure to add them to our list going forward.

We hope this helps. 

Enjoy :)

Skam Tag

Things I come to the SKAM tag for:

  • Translations (thank you, you wonderful beautiful translating souls)
  • Theories about every single clip because I am unobservant AF and you guys see and notice so much more than I
  •  Education on topics included in SKAM from fans that know first hand
  • Stunning fan art and gifs that I want to reblog a hundred times over
  •  Funny relatable posts that make me feel included in the SKAM community

Things I DON’T come to the SKAM tag for (and am, quite frankly, tired of seeing):

Racism/Sexism

  • This should say enough in itself. I honestly cannot believe that Julie Andem is trusting us with such a beautiful and progressive storyline in having Sana as a main and there is literally Islamophobia and racism everywhere on the tag
  •  Please get it together and prove to Julie that we both deserve this season and are going to give it the respect it should be receiving
  • Also, please educate yourselves before attacking everyone on here. Goodness gracious how can you attack someone’s ignorance when you are ignorant I am confused
  • The double standards and sexism on this tag is ridiculous
  • There are so many posts bashing the boys squads for things the girls can do just fine and vice versa, it’s sad

Hardcore judgment /hypocrisy

  • Seriously, the character judgment and hypocrisy on this tag is disgusting and I am talking specifically about people who are posting:
  • Hating on Elias for this whole slave thing as if siblings have never acted this way towards each other (I would hate for you all to see some of the nonsense my sister and I say to each other)
  • Hating on the balloon squad for “ignorant” comments when they  let our other boy squad slide for SO MANY ignorant comments last season (as if character growth on this show is not a thing?!?! Like?!?!?)
  • Hating on Eva for “stealing” Jonas from Ingrid (and yes, seriously,  I just saw this yesterday), but not saying shit when it came to Even CHEATING on Sonja with Isak
  • Hating on the balloon squad (whom we HARDLY know) but letting Vilde’s ignorance slide because “she is a flawed character but is growing so much omg” 

Evak Evak Evak

  • I love Evak as much as the next SKAM fan and their storyline was incredible and some posts here and there is both expected and wanted but really guys?? The entire skam tag is basically Evak and Sana deserves so much more than this, her storyline is so important, can we chill out on this please, we can enjoy Evak while giving Sana the attention she deserves

DISCLAIMER: This is in NO way directed at “everyone.” I just want us all to enjoy this LAST season and the characters and the growth as a community. I want to be able to participate in and enjoy the SKAM tag.

「僕のヒーローアカデミア」特集 ZIP (03/28)

I DONT EVEN KNOW HOW I FOUND THIS BUT-

THERE ARE SOME PREVIEWS??? OF WHATS ABOUT TO HAPPEN IN THE NEXT EPISODES OF BNHA SEASON 2 AND IM EXCITED??? THOSE ARE NOT FULL SHOTS BUT SOME SECONDS OF SOME STUDENTS FROM 1A.

LIKE, I DIDNT KNOW OJIRO’S TAIL WAS HELLA STRONG-

or that Bakugou could be even more handsome-cOUGH

watch it till the end please.

enjoy my fellow children

I'm sobbing. This is the most vmin we got in any mv. It was so indirect but in your face at the same time!

it’s all winter here even in August.


my heart is running on the time alone on the snowpiercer
.

i wanna get to the other side of the earth holding your hand 
wanna put an end to this winter.


how much longing should we see snowing down to have the days of spring, friend

snowflakes fall and get away little by little.

i miss you i miss you 

how long do i have to wait and how many sleepless nights do i have to spend to see you to meet you

passing by the edge of the cold winter until the days of the spring until the flowers blossom.

please stay, please stay there a little longer

you know it all, youre my best friend.

the morning will come again no darkness, no season can last forever.

maybe its cherry blossoms and this winter will be over

I miss you i miss you. 

wait a little bit, just a few more nights.


ill be there to see you, 

ill come for you

I made a theory about this but I should have read the lyrics sooner. I’m so happy!

I cant believe they actually went and said:

“You like their friendship so much? We’re gonna make a mv about it.”

The Clary Fray Defense Squad is here.

I am going to discuss the potential Climon sex and the fandom’s response to it. Sit tight, kids. 

I’m not thrilled that the show is dragging the romantic Climon storyline for too long as much as the next person is. I think they’re cute, in the right amount, which is what we get in the book, aka three days of dating before shit happens and then they realize they’re better off as best friends. I ship Clace. Climon are destined to be parabatai and they always have been in spirit. 

But don’t you dare slutshame Clary Fray for sleeping with her boyfriend, just because it isn’t “the right one” or just because it didn’t happen in the books. Don’t you dare tell a girl she can’t sleep with the guy she loves and who loves her back more than anything in the world. Don’t you dare tell a girl what she can’t do. 

Simon Lewis is the one person Clary knows will never leave her. He fucking died for her and she had to make him a vampire because she couldn’t bear the thought of losing him, all because he was too stubborn and didn’t want to let her walk into the Shadow World alone. Because as Luke says in City of Ashes, there is one place Simon has always fought tooth and nails to be, and it’s wherever Clary was. Clary lost her mother and she hung on to Simon for her life. He is in love with her, he would do anything for her, so forgive her for falling in love with the perfect guy. 

What is your problem anyway? That from what we saw in the promo she is going to have sex with him? That she won’t be a virgin when she has sex with Jace? Well that’s too bad. And oh the sexism. You didn’t seem to care that Jace is not a virgin either, but that’s fine, right? Because he is a guy and he can sleep with every girl in the city and it’s cool. But if Clary has sex with Simon or anyone else that isn’t Jace she’s a slut for not waiting for Jace, whom she believes to be her brother??? 

One thing that the CC antis and show stans always complain about the books is that they promote incest because Clary still has feelings for Jace even when she believes they’re siblings. The show is trying to erase that and it still doesn’t work for you? What a bunch of hypocrites.

Maybe the real problem is the value that you all assign to a woman’s virginity. Because I don’t see the difference of Climon making out in the book and Climon having sex in the show. None. Clary was 15 in the books, but she is 18 in the show and if she feels ready to have sex with her boyfriend, she goddamn will

Relax, Clace stans. We know Climon is not gonna last. But there is simply more time to fill on the show, so they can take things slow and delve deeper into each storyline. Calm the fuck down and don’t you dare call Clary Fray out on her choices. Because they are no one’s business but her own.

We always knew that the show wasn’t going to be a perfectly faithful adaptation of the books. Isn’t is thrilling that we don’t know what’s gonna happen next episode? Wouldn’t it be a bit boring to go on for I don’t know how many seasons without any surprises at all they were following the books (which I ADORE) page by page?

Please calm down. And don’t you dare slutshame Clary Fray.
