no wonder i like her so much

The fact that Galen hasnt forgotten about Jyn for like YEARS *ugly cries*

As a parent myself, that kills me. To lose your child and then just not know where they are, if they are safe, if they are alive? To feel powerless to help or find them, and yet be haunted for a decade and a half about them, wondering what they looked like, who they had grown up to be. To think, “I am not part of her life.”

And Jyn–she didn’t even know if her father was alive, either, but she most certainly thought of him during those years, especially after Saw abandoned her when it was becoming clearer that people were figuring out that she was an Erso related to Galen Erso.

For all of Jyn’s “I prefer to think he’s dead. It’s easier,” there’s so much hidden pain in that statement, because she, too, hasn’t forgotten him, and the father she knew as a child wasn’t a traitor. He was her Papa, the man who loved her, who hugged her, who only wanted to protect her. But why did he never come looking for her? Why didn’t he try? It’s a character flaw in him, but a human one. I bet she wondered that a lot in those fifteen years (and that’s part of why Cassian is so important here in her life–the person who does come back for her, and comes back, and doesn’t leave, in order to protect her).

But we see how much she still loves her father, how much she’s wanted to love him again and to be given a reason. Her face when she sees his holo. Her voice on the platform on Eadu when she screams out, “Father!”

Oh god. *ugly cries with you*

Is it just me or is Chibs a sadder child than she ever was in anime R? I mean considering that theory you just put out about Endymion's hologram having the ability to touch stuff but phasing out JUST as Chibs runs to hug him really makes me wonder what kind of parents he and NQS are! Like, no fucking wonder?

Chibi-Usa is VERY much coming across sadder and more sympathetic to me in the manga so far. And I say that as someone who didn’t find her particularly UNsympathetic in anime R. I’m struggling to find much of anything that’s working for me in the manga, but Chibs would definitely be one of those things. And, as utterly frustrating and so done with him as I am otherwise, so is Mamoru when it comes to Chibs.

I’ve been pondering on that for a bit, and I think there are a few reasons for it.

For one, Usagi is overreacting SO DRAMATICALLY that you’re sympathetic to everyone else by default, in a way, as being The Reasonable People In The Room. The manga also has less Usagi and Chibs conflict, so there are less opportunities to find Chibs annoying (or at least annoying in that way, mileage varies otherwise). Then there’s how Chibs so badly just wants COMFORT, which is a perfectly natural thing for any kid, and even more so one who’s been through what she has. That she’s struggling to find it (or “keep” it, such as with Mamoru) elicits a sympathetic, even protective response.

In a similar vein to the reduced conflict, I think this is one of the few times where I’d feel the manga’s pace is its asset. The anime had to spin its wheels so much sometimes, which was usually a plus in my view because it allowed for the character focus that I live for. But I think even Chibs would start to tax that sympathy if we got basically the same “poor me uwu” every week for thirty-something episodes, however understandable it may be. So in the anime, Chibs was given more than that. Even though she was years younger in anime R, she was more proactive to find and “steal” the ginzuishou to help her mum. She was being hunted, but because that was a weekly thing, dangerous situations had to be created for Chibs to happen or wander or run into. In a way then, anime R Chibs, particularly for a while there, is much less a sympathetic victim, which is almost entirely the tug of manga R Chibs (who in exchange lacks nearly all of anime R Chibs’ gumption and spunk).

But for what it’s trying to do right now, I find myself with little but complete sympathy for manga Chibs, and my heart goes out to her almost constantly.

Krista fidgets with the plastic cup in her hands, “I’ve never asked anyone for their number before. What do I even say?”

Reiner’s sat next to her on the sofa with his arm draped around Bertolt’s shoulders, but he removes it so he can lean in and get closer to Krista, like he’s trying to tell her a secret.

“It’s easy,” he says, his breath heavy with the stink of too much beer, and much too loud for it ever to be a secret, “just play it cool. And be polite! Like, try your best not to burp or fart in front of her.”

“Amazing.” Annie chimes in from her spot next to the sofa, leaning against the wall.

Reiner smirks like he’s taking her comment at face value, and knows his advice is brilliant. Leaning back and putting his arm around his boyfriend again he adds, “And if that doesn’t work, grab her ass and tell her it’s a work of art.”

Krista almost chokes on her sugary-sweet alcoholic drink.

I’ve yet to draw any Ashi art. And the thing about it is I genuinely like her and her character.

The fandom is so split and the thing about her is I see so much of Jack in her especially after episode 6.

I want to draw her as the successor of the Samurai and the new master of the sword
Because I think that would be such an incredible ending to an incredible story. And a wonderful character story arc that doesn’t end in a romance trope.

To the new traveling Samurai!
Samurai Ashi!

People are the worst.

I had a lady yell at one of my cashiers because an item was 20% off instead of 25% (because that $1.25 matters so much to them that they’ll scream at a teenager).

Then I had a lady try to return items that weren’t even from the brand that my store is, but she had sewn in fake tags on the collar. luckily she didn’t know all of our product has a joker tag on the bottom to keep stuff like that from happening. Tough luck.

Then another lady tried to return an item from 2011 and then wondered why we couldn’t even find it in our system and could only give her $0.97 in credit and only towards a similar item, like hello!!! Those pants could be in 1st grade by now!!! Our return policy is 45 days, not 6 fucking years.

Then another lady tried using Khols Cash here, a store that is definitely not Khols. Then she demanded to inpw why we couldn’t accept it because “other stores accept competitors coupons.” First of all, that’s not a coupon, that’s brand loyalty cash, and two we’re not one of those stores. I just gave her the corporate number and my name and I’ll just wait and see if I get an angry call from corporate but I wasn’t taking that.

Her brain was being bombarded with questions that she couldn’t help but want to ask as they got ready for the next pose.

Roma: Speaking of Dahlia…how are you gonna ask her to prom?

Since Roma was doing well at concealing her emotions, Danny glanced at his friend’s face without getting anything back but innocent curiosity, his concentration for the position faltering.

Danny: Uh…I haven’t thought about it much. I was just gonna be like, “Hey, Dahl, I heard there’s this thing called prom and I was wondering if you’d like to attend it with me.”

Roma, laughing a little: Oh. Okay…I guess she’ll be fine with that, but at least make it more heartfelt. Dahlia would not be pleased if you were so casual…

All she got was a playful scoff in response.

I looooved Normani's routine last night. Your girl came to slay ok 💁🏾 And I love all the Valmani moments 😍 But I also noticed Josh Levi was there again. Do you know what the deal is between him and Normani. I just thought they were friends but he commemts on her ig a lot calling her babe and tweets about how much he loves her, so it seems like he wants to be more than friends. And it annoys me lol maybe I'm just being weird but I was wondering if anyone else picked up on it too.

I tried to warn everyone that they needed to strap on their wigs extra tight last Monday!! Normani slayed per usual. As for Josh, he is one of her oldest friends. They did that performing arts program together back in the day. Mama Drea looks at him as a son and I think N does as a brother consequently. He’s a few years young than she is and he’s following his dream out in LA too so she probably sees a lot of herself in him. Plus like I always say, Normani is a loyal one. Loyal to her own fault at times. She’s not dropping friends, especially not now considering she needs as many real folk around as possible as 5H really starts to make it. N definitely puts to use alllll of her tickets for dwts. Honestly, I just see him as an annoying little brother.

anonymous asked:

Hi there! I was wondering, what were the characters first impression of Lucy? You know, besides 'holy shit who is this and why am I suddenly naked in an unfamiliar place'? Like, after they got to be around her for a while. Love all of the work you all did btw! <3

Thank you so much for the kind words!

This is a question I actually like a lot because it’s a fun perspective that’s difficult to showcase in a perspective that never strays from a linear, first-person perspective.

Edmund was filled with gratitude and, his mind unburdened with thoughts of his previous guilt, probably felt as though he was living in a fairy tale where a beautiful young woman relieves him of his curse. Was it love at first sight? No, but perhaps infatuation.

Frankie, perhaps being the most fragile out of all of the boys (okay, next to Kyle, but to explain THAT would require spoilers), was holding on to some lingering dread and was just happy to be rescued by someone who seemed to have his best interests at heart.

Kyle was immediately attracted to Lucy, and he shows it too, but aside from the impromptu make out session, he’s had his time with other punk girls and realized very quickly that he didn’t want to spend his time in a relationship trying to ‘out-punk’ anyone, and likes someone who contrasts with him.

Miguel was, like Kyle, immediately attracted to Lucy. Not due to contrast, but to comparison. Where the other boys reminded him of friends he once had, Lucy is everything about that romance (you know, THAT ONE) that he liked, her quiet but frank demeanor and her gentleness, but she didn’t carry any of the toxic qualities of THAT previous relationship, and he was flattered by the fact that she seemed to think of him as being more mature and less of a freak than he considers himself.

Charlie switched into ‘Group Patriach’ mode too fast to actually develop an opinion on anyone immediately. Lucy was a friend and a compatriot first. I really like how their romance develops out of that, but no, Charlie had no such immediate attraction. Especially as he was coming out of some FRESH hurt.

when i was like 14, i once wore contact lenses instead of glasses to school bc i had just learned how to put them on and i wanted to show them to my friends right, and this one guy goes and tells me “i thought girls were supposed to become beautiful when they stopped wearing glasses. something obviously went wrong with you” and that was??? so incredibly rude i wanted to cry but i just stood there not knowing what to say bc i honestly thought we were friends

but the girl sitting in front of him (who was also his crush, mind u) hears him and turns around with the most disgusted expression on her face, and calls him out on it like “omg i cant believe you said that have you even seen yourself in a mirror you have no right to tell her shit” and then she turns to me and says “dont listen to him, you look gorgeous with or without glasses” and she probably already forgot about that but i always remember it whenever i feel self-conscious about myself

so the moral of the story is: if u see someone being a jerk to someone else, dont laugh along and call them out on it. stick together and bring all the fuckboys down

(1) Hi Viria, I hope you are well :) I am sorry to bother you with this, but it's really important for me, and I wanted to share it with you. It'll be long and kinda sad at first, but it gets better, trust me. I'm a 23 y/o latina art student. When I was a baby, my mom left my dad and remarried, and my little sister was born when I was 10. She is the light of my life and I love her to no end. Our mom, however, had had and undiagnosed and untreated mental illness for years, and one day

(2) during a severe crisis she hurt us really bad. I was 12. She was taken away to a psychiatric hospital and Child Services prohibited her from ever getting near us again. Since then, I have been taking care of my little sister and practically raised her while my stepdad worked 2-3 shifts to afford our education and payment for my mom’s hospital, living and meds. He was always working and I took full responsibility for my sis. As you can imagine, even though I loved her with my life, 

 (3) the situation was very stressful and exhausting for me. By the time I was 15, I looked every bit a teen mom. One particularly hard night when my little sis had been crying about mom, I couldn’t sleep. So I turned to something that calmed me: the Harry Potter books. I read them online, and somehow ended up searching for HP fanart. That was the night I stumbled upon your DA account. And boy, did I love it! I know back in 2011 your skills weren’t what they are now,

(4) but I was blown away, and what’s more, I felt inspired to draw. I had never tried to make any art before; it wasn’t “my thing”. But that night, you inspired me. As time went by I kept drawing and closely followed your improvements. Your art was so relaxing, calming, and inspiring, that it really helped me during hard times. You kinda dragged me into all the cool fandoms, series and animes, and I found life to be far more bearable with so many awesome things to love and think about.

(5) Your DA and Tumblr were some sort of safe sapce for me. It always cheered me up and gave me joy, peace, inspiration. When the time came, I choose to study Art at college. It turned out you did too, and you kept up all the good stuff in your blogs. Weirdly enough, I kept feeling a sense of pride whenever you improved and got better. I was so strange that you were so so far away and didn’t even know I existed but you helped me so much.

(6) I got accepted at my country’s top University to study Fine Arts; I moved cities and took my sister with me; she grew into a wonderful, sensible, peaceful child, and her presence motivated me to be the best version of myself, while your art motivated me to keep expanding my academic/artistic abilities. Life was hard but good at college, and I had incredible opportunities. I am graduating this spring with an advanced studies specialization, and was recently hired to work at

(7) of a movie. It’s like living a dream. And tonight, just a couple hours ago, the most incredible thing happened. After dinner, my little sis came to me, phone in hand, and said “Hey Ana, you won’t believe what I found. There’s this girl who makes amazing art of all the fandoms you’re in. Her drawings are gorgeous and she has so many!”. She showed me your tumblr. I wanted to laugh and cry. She was amazed when she saw your old drawings and your current ones; speechless.

(8) She fell in love, and you know what? Immediatly after, she went to draw. She’s been doing so the past hours. I know this was offensively long, but Viria, I needed to thank you for what you did. Your art has always been SO much more than just digital drawings of fictional characters. It’s been the source of peace, safety and joy that so many of us crave. You have wonderfully impacted and influenced many people across the world with everything you make.

(9) I am so glad you exist and do what you do; you gave me the hobby that grew into my passion, thaught me so much, inspired me beyond belief and most of all, you helped make life more bearable. And now, you have made the same for my sister. Viria, the world wouldn’t be the same without you. You are truly a magnificent light among us, and for your existence and passion I’ll be forever grateful. Thank you, and may you always live the beautiful, happy, awesome life you deserve. Thank you.


I’m not even kidding I was sitting here peacefully chewing sandwich and by the end of these messages the sandwich was too salty so was my cappuccino I swear you got me to tears and now i’m just like

I’m a shaking emotional leaf but thank you so much for writing me! It means so much and i’m so touched and i just wish you and your sister all the best of luck, though it seems like you don’t really need it. Thank you, and I hope life goes wonderfully for you and your family!

Night in the Woods!!

I just finished this beautiful video game called Night in the Woods that I am now absolutely in love with and here is why: 

  • Casual LGBT representation - the protagonist is canonically bisexual (maybe pan!) and is best friends with a gay couple that have very lifelike relationship problems (that have nothing to do with being gay), and the protagonist continually refers to God as “they.” I’m a fan of the ship Maebea, but it’s not openly canon.
  • Deep talks that are accurate to life - emotions, relationships, beliefs, abuse, mental health, it’s all there and it’s all important.
  • The CHARACTERS. They are so unbelievably loveable and iconic, and have such a range of emotions and specific reactions to the events in the game that make them all very real as well. They are also all cartoon animals (the protagonist is a cat, and her friends are alligators, bears, and foxes, and her neighborhood includes penguins and raccoons).  There’s a character that just tells you a weak poem every day and has no other real significance but to tell you this poem. 
  • The plot is simultaneously about a cult of ghosts and a dissociative disorder, but more on this later
  • Good comedy at no one’s expense 
  • Lots and lots of fantastic one-liners
  • Fantastic graphics, fantastic game mechanics (platforming!! It’s so much fun because there really are no limits. You can walk on the sidewalk or on top of cars or along a powerline, whatever you want) 
  • A+ art style - it utilizes color to set mood and determine setting (or state of consciousness, considering the playable dream sequences left up to interpretation) and even converts to sihlouettes in some places where it’s most chilling to do so. They use the eyes of the characters to show most of the emotions. The music that was chosen for this game is absolutely perfectly placed to get the most out of the storyline. 
  • A+ suspense - the writing is beautiful and compelling. The comic relief is timed perfectly, but I still teared up in multiple chapters of the game. The game starts out where our protagonist just dropped out of college to go back home, and is hanging out with her old friends, but takes a lot of sharp turns to get into a much deeper plot over the little subplots we started. Part of me wonders if the game would change very much if I chose different dialogue options so I may find some playthroughs later, but for now I’d just like to appreciate how smoothly the plot progresses despite how quickly it descends into very deep topics.
  • It is a long game with a lot of story, but that’s part of what I love. It’s just long enough to be satisfying and I’m still sad I finished it already. Despite complications in the plot as the story continues, it’s very easy to follow. Anything that doesn’t make sense is intentionally confusing to highlight the mindset of the character you’re playing as, and I think that’s the best way to do it. 
  • There is also a lot that they don’t explain, a lot to reveal through theorizing only. I could think about this forever and not come up with every theory to be pulled from this. 
  • One of the topics they keep coming back to is the assumed mental illnesses of the different characters, even the protagonist (I only say “assumed” because they never directly say that the characters have any mental health issues, but the way they talk about their fears and the way they view reality points toward very well-portrayed and lifelike mental illnesses, mainly dissociative and anxiety disorders.)
  • Nihilistic existential dread (part of what I love about it, but could trigger some dissociation in people who are more sensitive to that kind of thing. Subtly breaks the fourth wall once to talk about how video games are just shapes and will never exist) 
  • P A R A L L E L S
  • Solid “moral” to take from the story, not even eye-roll-corny
  • What a beautiful ending

The game is about $20 on steam, but if you can’t afford it or prefer to watch games rather than play them, jacksepticeye has flawless voices for all of the characters and some good theories going so that’s the one I recommend
