Are you fucking kidding me. Lena means sunlight. Is this for real??? WHY HAS NO ONE POSTED ABOUT THIS? Am I late? Has this been done yet? Because like, holy shit. The thing that gives Supergirl her powers, that’s the sun. So like, holy shit. Also ‘tender’ and ‘devoted’ like bruh, that’s Lena Luthor down to the letter. This is tripping me out. It’s official. Lena is meant to be the light giving Kara strength and showing her the way. She’s also meant to give Kara her love and devotion. It’s like how can the SG writers set Supercorp up so perfectly and just not make it canon.

Ive had these characters for a while but have yet to post them. Their designs arnt final.

The top one’s name is unpronounceable to human (or other species’) speach, tho they are often called Trogon in common tongue. The owner of a rubber goods manufacturing company, Trogon has little respect for Banxers beyond labor and as an “evolutionary oddity”. Their gaudy clothing is rather…provocative by Daw standards. They find Banxer’s inability to see most colors “fascinating” and try to incorporate “invisible hues” as much as possible into their attire.

Little one is “Prawn”, a younger Daw and recently employed Human Banxer resources representative at Trogon’s most productive factory. Prawn tries to be sympathetic and understanding to the Banxer workers, but at heart just really doesnt want conflict and seems a little too eager to appease Trogon’s apathy when things get difficult.

Hey hey hey is that cool mug you posted a picture of supposed to be the dark tower? (Stephen King book series but also something written about earlier by someone else I thing)

Yes it is! I read the series last year and became hooked. I’ve been thinking about it a lot recently due to current events and the sneaking suspicion that one of the Beams has fallen.

It’s… it’s absolutely a flawed story. I have innumerable problems with its content and execution. Yet it’s deeply important to me - one of those tales that gets in your brain and sets up shop for good.

I was on Youtube and there is this one video called "Top 10 Worse Couples in Anime" and it has Gochi as the thumbnail (didn't watch it since I didn't want to give views). Even worse, since I watch a lot of Dragon Ball videos, I see the link to said video everywhere. Can you write why Goku x Chichi is good to cheer me up?

I haven’t watched the video on youtube yet, but I saw brief post made about it on tumblr and other gochi fans were upset about too…. :(

And sure I can do that for you anon !  💕 ^_^ ((I’m planning on making a proper tag that way other gochi fans can look at it when they feel sad. Like maybe “Gochi analysis” or “Gochi posts” ? but for now you can look at the regular gochi tag in this blog. And see why other people like this couple and why they are not bad like other people think.  ))

List of Why Goku x Chichi is a good couple! :D

((If you’re a Gochi fan and want to express why you love the couple too please tag this blog! :D @57fandom59   💕  ))

1. When they first met they instantly became buddies/friends. They just connected.  This is funny to think about because they didn’t even have a rivalry like Goku’s other friends xD The most that ever happened between goku and chichi is that she got mad for 1 second cause of the pat pat he did. 

But then you see her quickly giggle it off and instead forms a little girly crush on him. But overall, NO rivalry between them. They got along very well. xD

((Also note how on this one episode Goku offers Chichi an apple (goku only offers you his food when he really likes you as a person)  and he spends some time to hang out with her. He feels so relaxed next to her that he even falls asleep. xD ))

2. WHAT EVER CHICHI WANTS HIM TO DO HE DOES IT. Like gaaaaahhh that is so cute!!! >< You see him tell her this as a kid 

*boom they get married years later (even though he forgot his promise. BTW I wouldn’t blame him for forgetting cause it’s been years and plus goku had so much stuff happen in his life it is easy to forget. PLUS Chichi looks kind of different from when she was a kid. but regardless of him forgetting he still married her because he remembered the promise he made and that he wants to make her happy. )) 

((Also notices how when they do get married, you can see it in his face that he is happy for his decision! xD He is such a goofball I swear/// )) 

THEN as an adult he still does what makes her happy;;;; Like JC this boy is too cute to this girl.

For example, in the future Chichi tells him to get his driver’s licences. 

So he does. THEN chichi tells him to get a job. He does it. And is a provider for his family now. (he has 2 jobs actually, farmer + Security guard ). 

And when she tells him to get the groceries he gets them for her. xD


3. GOCHI HAS LOTS OF THINGS IN COMMON : Both martial artists, both can ride nimbus, both have black hair and black/brown eyes etc. 

4. They’re height difference! :’D  I know this is not a big deal but to me it’s cute because the boy was so much shorter than her

((few years later. Goku is getting there but is still shorter than chichi haha xD ))

((few more years later Goku is finally taller than her! ! xD ))

Then BAM he just gets so much taller than her that I just asdfasdfasdfasdf *explodes* 

He gets so much taller in fact that the poor momma has to go on her tippy toes just to kiss him! xD LIKE that is so friekn cute I swear

5. THEY BOTH CONSISTENTLY THINK ABOUT EACH OTHER 

6. They’re ability to compromise and work out their differences! Like for example Goku wants to constantly train but chichi wants him to work.  LINK So they talked it out with each other and now the agreement between them is that Goku gets to go train as long as he puts some hours of work.

7. Chichi is the only character you see where Goku blushes around her or gets those cute anime beauty bubbles when he looks at her! xD LINK

7. Goku LOVES the fact that his wife can kick his butt!/her strong willed personality >:D 

9. And finally they have so much love and care the have for each other :’D They’re strong nakama bond! <333 LINK

((this actually turned out to be a long post…..lol whoops)) I hope you enjoyed this post anon! and that I made you feel better ^o^ 

Today’s other monoprint

This is a ghost print - a second monoprint from an inked plate. I think it decided the question I raised in the previous post, which included the original, very brushy, painterly, monoprint. In the ghost, the brushmarks are largely gone, lifted away by the first piece of paper, and flattened out by the pass through the press. And although it’s pale, this one has the graphic quality that makes me want to make prints. Yes, there’s a tradeoff in expressive power…not finished with this image yet ;)

Tony either has a series of one night stands with Steve, Bucky, and T'Challa or he's be openly dating the three of them (they know about each other but they haven't met yet). When he learns he's pregnant with triplets he's terrified he'll have to raise them alone. But when he learns they all three want to be there as the other father, he's terrified of them meeting for the first time. They'd Each always thought they'd be the one to win Tony's heart. Now they learn to keep him they have to share

©  I can’t help but picture Tony going to each of them alone in tears cause he’s scared they will be angry that he doesn’t know who the father is (surprise they all are) and he’s afraid they will hate him and they each wrap him in their arms and promise they are going to be with him through all of this and that they love him and those babies no matter who they belong to cause their Tony’s. And Tony goes home in a daze cause oh shit now they all want to be the father regardless.

I like the idea of one night stands with the three. They could possibly know about the others or they could not. Doesn’t matter because they agreed to have sex with no strings attached, even if the three harbor a little flame for the adorable and sexy genius and they wouldn’t mind waking up every morning to the rumpled and adorable bed head of Tony’s and their arms wrapped around him and knowing Tony was all theirs. And in turn Tony may or may not have a crush on the three but believes nothing will come out of it so he takes what he can get, in this case the one night stands where he can imagine he’s in a loving relationship with whoever he’s sleeping with for the night. 

The three either know about each other from friends telling them Tony was seen with so and so, or they put together that no strings attach means that Tony can sleep with whoever he wants, but surely having Tony return to them over and over again instead of chucking them out after the first night entails they mean more than just a warm body. They matter more than the other guy and eventually Tony will realize that and make it official. 

Never happens, not when Tony doesn’t want to risk ending their arrangements quicker because his feelings decided to barf all over them, almost literally. When morning sickness kicks in Tony ends up rushing off in the middle of having sex because his stomach would not cooperate, no matter how many glasses of water he drank, and unless he wanted to throw up on whoever he was sleeping with he needed the toilet, now. Sex doesn’t continue, not when they start to worry and the only thing they could think of was taking care of the genius. 

Finding out he’s pregnant is obviously a huge shock, the realization that he doesn’t even know who’s the father is a bigger shock, the revelation that he’s carrying triplets is an even bigger shock and by the time the conclusion of possibly raising three kids on his own manages to make itself known Tony doesn’t have any shocks left to give. He’s downright terrified of telling the three the news. How would they react? “Hey, so turns out I’m pregnant, but I have no idea who’s the father between you and two others. Surprise!” 

When he does eventually tell them it’s nerve wrecking, but nothing could’ve prepared him for their actual reaction. Them wrapping their arms around him, whispering words of encouragement, telling him that he doesn’t have to do it alone and they’ll be there to help, and promising to love the children, no matter who the father is. And now Tony is in a pickle because all three said this, all three want to be present and be fathers and all three seem very determined to come out the victor in the end and win his heart and possibly his hand. 

And considering the three don’t stand down without a fight it’s going to be interesting to see them compete with each other over who gets the honor to stand beside Tony in the hospital. Who changes diapers faster? Who has better taste in color for the nursery room? Who can work around their clock to always include time for their kids? Who is the lightest sleeper and can wake up over the smallest noise from the baby monitor? Who is faster at fetching Tony’s craving for the night? 

The entire thing is brutal but they’ll eventually learn to share.

A lot of the fandom seems to be freaking out about this so let’s talk about it!

This was actually one of my favourite scenes from the episode. Not because of any kind of impending drama but because this conversation has honestly been a long time coming.

After episode 7, there was no relationship talk. Victor and Yuuri have yet to sit down and tell each other straight up what they want out of their relationship (both personally and professionally). Flash back to episode 4 where Victor was asking what he should be to Yuuri. Now they actually are boyfriends (well, even more than that, fiancés) but same as we’ve never heard them state it, I don’t think they’ve really made it explicitly clear to each other either.

I feel that so far they’ve just been letting things evolve as they go. The Cup of China was actually only a bit over a month ago in-series. Their intimate relationship is still very new and it’s been moving really fast. They’re definitely physically intimate (as you can see by the pushed-together beds) but they haven’t quite connected the same way on the emotional level. They definitely love each other and want to stay with each other, I don’t doubt that for a moment, but they haven’t sat down and said “I want to spend my life with you” to each other. They haven’t told each other what their plans are for their professional relationship either.

We know that Victor has been doing a lot of thinking, and it was very obvious in this episode that he is grieving his career, but it’s also obvious that he doesn’t plan to go back to skating competitively.

Yuuri however, being the anxious person that he is, is reading Victor’s grieving all wrong. Yuuri is thinking that not only is their professional relationship (which he could end simply by retiring) but also their personal relationship is holding Victor back from what he “wants” – to go back to being a competitive skater. And thus we get the line that we did here. This is Yuuri’s attempt to “free” Victor to allow him to chase what Yuuri thinks he actually wants, which turns out could not be any further from the truth.

They aren’t going to break up. I can tell you that right now and with absolute certainty. Rather than this being something that is going to create drama, it is actually going to work to solve it. Yuuri needs to hear from Victor that Victor has no intention of leaving and that he wants to stay with Yuuri more than he wants to continue his skating career. Also very important is that Victor needs to say it out loud. Victor is a thinker, he rarely makes big decisions on a whim. He’s been processing what he wants to do with his life for a year now and he has definitely come to his decision (as was evident in episode 10).

Victor has chosen Yuuri over his skating career and this line from episode 11 is just the gateway to the discussion that will firmly cement their personal relationship in place. And the final bow-tie on the gift that is their relationship will be the duet skate at the end of the episode.

I’m honestly looking forward to seeing it.

So, now that Yuuri and Victor are about to travel to my home country - Spain - to compete in the Grand Prix Final, I think it’s time that I talk to you guys about one of the most interesting skaters this show has led me to discover (as recommended to me by the wonderful @danuuss​): Spanish skater Javier Fernández.

Honestly, I don’t know how I haven’t seen a single post about him yet. He’s the current male ice skating world champion, won silver at the last Grand Prix Final, and has placed first at both the Rostelecom Cup and the Trophée de France this year, barely three weeks ago. Plus, he trained alongside Yuzuru Hanyu in Toronto and they are very close friends. Case and point:

(Don’t misinterpret this though, Javier’s in a relationship with skater Miki Ando :P)

But enough about Yuzuru, I’ll just let Javier speak for himself. The following is his free program from last year’s World Championship (which he won). Out of all the videos in this post, I think this one is honestly my favourite - I could watch it forever, the music is fantastic and his performance is near perfect.

Okay, so you watch this and you think “Pretty suave”, right? Well, here’s the thing: Javier Fernandez is literally the most Spanish athlete I have ever seen. And by that I mean that he always finds the time to make a joke. Without further ado, his performance for the 2014 Sochi Olympics Closing Ceremony.

Literally the most Spanish thing ever s2g. 

For those you who are interested, I’ll also include his programs from this year. I like his free program best to be honest, but the way he gets super into his short program is just amazing to watch.

Short program (I really like the commentary in this one):

Free program:

I’ll leave it there because I really don’t want this to turn into a super long post, but I hope you enjoyed getting to know one of the top skaters in the world! I get the feeling that in this fandom we tend to be really focused on just a handful of skaters, and I think we should definitely broaden our horizons a little more and get to know other skaters as well, especially those from our own countries!

Okay I’ll seriously forget if I don’t do it now, so I wanna make a post about some of Victor’s scenes in episode 10. Mostly ‘cause I haven’t seen any other posts talking about it from this angle yet.

Some important things we get from having the episode be in Victor’s POV is that we finally get to hear, to some extent, his opinions on specific topics. Mainly, his break from skating and how it seems to effect everyone else (including him). 

It’s obvious what he thinks of Yuuri, but he specifically talks about other skaters and his relationships with them, and how his leaving for the season has been taken. One of the most notable, I think, would be this one about Chris:

“I can’t imagine a skating season without him, and he has said that he wouldn’t be motivated in a season without me, either. Despite all that, he was savvy enough to make it to the Grand Prix Final.”

Victor’s obviously been very observant of all the other skaters, and he’s been thinking about how his departure from the scene has changed things. He makes a specific note about Chris, probably his biggest rival on the ice, and comments on how not being able to imagine a season without him… only to acknowledge that Chris has done perfectly fine without having Victor to compete against. 

Skip ahead to the beach scene near the end, and we get to what I really want to talk about. Specifically, Victor grabbing Yuri and his hand shaking. 

One thing I keep seeing is people saying Victor’s angry with Yuri, that he grabs him out of anger because he was insulting Yuuri. However, Victor’s heard Yuri insult his charge on plenty an occasion. Both he and Yuuri are used to the name calling and are the adults in the situation, so they don’t let Yuri’s outbursts get to them. Why would that change now? 

No, I don’t think it’s about him insulting Yuuri at all. I don’t think Victor’s even really angry when he grabs Yuri - at least, he’s more upset than angry. 

So, the scene is set: Victor’s taking a walk, goes out to the beach to look at the ring Yuri gave him. He’s obviously thinking really deeply about something, and the fact that he’s at the beach with seagulls hanging around (a scene he’s mentioned reminds him of home) adds a layer of sentimentality to the situation without any words being said. 

And then Yuri very aggressively disrupts his train of thought with this:

This probably reads a lot like a comical ‘you’re dead to me!’ sort of line - understandable, given Yuri’s clear disdain towards Yuuri. However, this line is more important because it’s more or less Yuri summing up the entire dilemma Victor has been forced to confront the entire episode: that he is no longer the reigning champion, the idol, the inspirational pro skater. I read this as Yuri voicing Victor’s thoughts and worries out into the open, and forcing Victor to confront his fears about them in a more literal sense. 

Yuri says this line, then asks why Victor is happy choosing this life with ‘that damned pig’. Victor’s response to this is, “Did you want to compete against me?” A weird, very specific question to throw back, right? It seems almost completely off topic. But I think it’s Victor trying to confirm something.

“Don’t be so full of yourself. Not all skaters look up to you. Just go away already, geezer.”

And there it is, that’s the line that sets Victor off and makes him grab the fifteen-year-old rather aggressively - uncharacteristically so. We’ve never once seen Victor act like this. There’s even a nice little jab at his age in there, which we know Victor’s sensitive about. 

Yuri is basically summing up what Victor is slowly coming to accept, a truth that might even scare him - he’s fading away from the skating world. This sport that’s been his entire life is something that he’s now seeing can go on without him. The competitors he’s felt inspired by, who he could never imagine having beside him on the ice… they’re able to move on. 

“I’ll win just to prove how incompetent his owner is.”

Victor’s not angry - he’s scared. His hand is shaking because Yuri is basically throwing every worry Victor has about his choices back into his face. Rather than giving Victor the chance to be quietly reflective, Yuri is forcing him to confront it by voicing it. Yuri challenging the worth of the ring specifically means a lot. He’s suggesting everything Victor’s done up to this point - being interested in Yuuri, giving up skating to coach him, falling in love with him and wanting to stay - is all a big mistake that he’s going to regret. And then he’ll have nothing, because the skating world doesn’t want or need him anymore. 

As if any of this isn’t something Victor’s already thought about. The thing is, Victor also knows that if he hadn’t done any of it, he would’ve regretted that more than anything. 

“If I’d stayed in Russia as a competitor, Yurio wouldn’t be this motivated to fight. And neither would I…”

Even if this path is uncertain, is scary… even if it means giving up a huge part of himself and moving on from something he’s devoted his entire life to up until this point… Victor still sees it as the right choice. Maybe even the only choice. 

The scene doesn’t end on a bad note though! I thought Yuri’s parting remark (which I read as some form of indirect apology for riling him up so much) ties up the exchange quite nicely:

It astounds me how often we fail at being able to comprehend two complex concepts at the same time.

I’ve been seeing this post going around in two forms, about how Rogue One (which I have yet to see, so please NO SPOILERS) has an extreme lack of women (including background characters). That’s a really good, important point to discuss. And then there’s a post bashing that same article, pointing to the fact that the film highlights many non-white men and dismissing the article as white feminism.

No.

Both of these may be correct.

The ability of a film to have great representation for men of different races, creeds, abilities and backgrounds does not for a moment contradict the inability of the film to have adequate representation for women of any race, creed, ability or background.

This is why I hate the “trash fire” all-or-nothing mentality. It cannot cope with the notion that something can be good and bad at the same time, in different corners and contexts. For example: something can be great for racial representation and terrible for LGBTQ+ representation. The former does not automatically make the thing great; the latter does not automatically make the thing terrible. (Key word: automatically.)

Not only that, things can have different meanings to different people based on their different experiences. For someone mixed race Asian-white, a main character like Chloe Bennet’s on Agents of SHIELD may be hugely important. For someone black, the show’s troubling history of killing off most of its black characters may be deeply problematic. Neither is wrong. 

Personal experiences shape our interpretations of things. Experiences are not universal. The world is not comprised of absolutes. The stunning lack of women in film (at every layer) intersects, of course, with the stunning lack of non-white people in film (at every layer), but neither is more or less important than the other. (Especially since the doubly stunning lack of non-white women in film is something we should talk about more.) It is not “white feminism” to point out that a film with ten character posters had only one devoted to a (white) woman (even if she is the lead), just because the remaining men are non-white. Nor is it misogynistic to appreciate the film’s focus on (male) non-white heroes.

Complex concepts can coexist.
