Hey Clockie,
After “Room For Ruby"I’ve been seeing a lot of people talking about gems who have their gem on their navel and how they have the capacity to deceive people but they only seem to mention Rose and Navy…excluding Pink Diamond from that list. She has a navel gem too, so does that mean that she also could be deceptive? What are your thoughts?

It also fails to include Steven, Skinny Jasper, numerous aristocrats we see in The Answer, Smoky Quartz, and Rainbow Quartz.

I think that it’s very funny as much as canon has taken a very strong stance that no two people are going to be interchangeable or identical that the fandom puts a lot of emphasis on trying to categorize Gems.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but…amber is actually starting to grow on me. I just hope that they actually develop her character a bit, instead of making her the character that you’re just supposed to hate at face value. She clearly has a ton of insecurities that make her act the way she does, and while I’m not at all defending the way she acts, I am a little interested in what made her that way.

#fannibalselfrec event - Hannibal season one

Thanks to @hannibalficwriters for organising this, I’m looking forward to checking out everyone’s recs :)

I nearly decided not to take part - I have problems with self-reccing, especially when I think something has received ‘enough’ attention. It just seems greedy. But that’s a) stupid and b) I have a story I want to tell about the writing of this fic.

I have literally only one (1) which qualifies. Others have strayed too far into AU-land to count as taking place in S1. That fic is *drumroll*:


Hannibal/Will ~ 57k words ~ Explicit

A Season 1 BDSM AU

Summary: What if Hannibal’s sadistic tendencies only find expression through consensual BDSM relationships? Set in a Season 1 AU where Will is allowed to continue teaching, relatively undisturbed by Jack, and seeks Hannibal’s professional help of his own accord.

The story I want to tell is how I went from not even thinking about writing, to writing something which juuussst about qualifies as a short novel (if we go by word count) in the same bound. (And how you can too! No, just kidding - I hate those kinds of terrible advice blogs. But stick with me, there’s things in this story which might be relevant for anyone reading.)

Before this fic, I wasn’t writing. Anything. Not only that, but I wasn’t even a frustrated writer who wanted to write but couldn’t. The idea of writing had never occurred to me. Sure, I was a frustrated creative person - I have been all my life, even since I was a very small child. Just before this fic, I had been studying fine art with a load of other adult learners and trying to engage with the contemporary arts scene in a fairly amateurish but genuine way. I would have described myself as an artist. My creative friends are sculptors and printmakers and painters. We had just finished putting on a group exhibition - just to see if we could - and were thinking vaguely of other things we might do together in the future.

Enter fandom. I had come to Hannibal post-cancellation and watched all three seasons breathlessly, then wandered around Tumblr reading meta and finding great fic and thinking WHY OH GOD WHY ARE THEY LIKE THIS in a way which is familiar to anyone who has just Found Hannigram.

My gf is a fandom-savvy individual and we usually talk about our obsessions, whether they’re shared or not. We came up with something which we found funny and which you most likely won’t - after steeping ourselves in Hannibal’s god-complex we thought it would be hilarious to reduce him down to a common-or-garden bedroom sadist. He would make bad bondage puns and have a dungeon instead of a murder basement. Lololol etc. I even went so far as to refer to this as Fifty Shades of Graham, which if you know me, demonstrates how un-serious I was about it.

I DID NOT INTEND TO WRITE THIS is what I am trying to say. It was a joke, a bad one, and a private one. I never intended to be a writer* at all. 

Because apparently, unbeknown to me, that’s what I’ve been all this time. Secretly, under the surface somewhere. And what I think is this: I just wasn’t ready to be a writer before. I wasn’t ready to discover this about myself. The things that I did before - all the visual art, all my academic studies and crap jobs - all have, in differing and subtle ways, all fed into this part of me which wasn’t ready to come out yet. 

And I also think that this is happening to all of us. It’s just as true for you as it is for me. We all have hidden pockets of potential, things even the most self-aware of us do not know about, or refuse to look too closely at. Those pockets might not lead directly to anything life changing, they may be paths to other, deeper and more difficult to find pockets. Or simply to activities and interests we find enjoyable, a way of doing something just for ourselves or of meeting people we need in our lives.

A wise person on the internet said “follow the rabbit-holes”. They all lead to the same place anyway, and the easiest path there is the one of least resistance. Follow that strange tug, dive in, see where it leads you without worrying about the destination. You might end up being very surprised.

*It took me maybe six months to start to feel I could use the hallowed word Writer when talking about myself, and now I can even tell complete strangers this without blushing and feeling like a fraud.

18 months later and I can’t imagine not planning all my not-work time around writing - I think about it constantly. It nags at me when I’m prevented from doing it by other commitments. My weeks and weekends are based squarely around which project I’m working on and how much time I have until that deadline, self-imposed or not. I have so many projects lined up they are constantly being juggled and re-ordered so I can try to maximise my available writing time in the most effective way. I’m even looking beyond fandom and beginning work on an original novel. And it all started with this fic.

For the really curious, here is how Cathexis got written (under the cut):

Why are they ignoring Eva so much this season? I mean they show us like someone who only cares about partying and they ignore everything Eva went through in season 1. She had more dept last season and this season is about someone who is also in the girl squad. Also where is Noora and Eva’s friendship? Why are they not letting Sana and Eva talk? I mean they both felt left out at some point and I really think Eva wants to help Sana.

anonymous asked:

do you think that if we got a few more episodes or even a full season, the rosvolio would have been a little slower? i love what we got in ep 5, but just one episode earlier we had ros cringing at a brothel. and now she's literally staring at ben's naked ass on purpose?? (i loved it don't get me wrong) the ship itself is still slow enough to be called a slow-burn imho, esp since 7 eps is all we're getting. but to me the pacing is similar to a romantic film, no?

My response got a bit lengthy so I’ll put it under a cut, but the short answer is: no I don’t think their relationship would’ve been/should be handled slower, nor do I think Rosaline’s reaction during the bathtub scene was inconsistent with her character.

@hannibalficwriters This is my first submission for #FannibalFicRecs :D

A beautiful piece from @weconqueratdawn with an intriguing Dom/Sub power dynamics between Hannibal and Will  :) 

qyndox  asked:

aw the first/last time i checked your blog (when i first found it) you were only on like ep 10, and now you're moving through season 1 like wildfire! You really have a lot of insightful comments and spectulation that I really am awed by. But your reactions are also really funny and enjoyable! I can't wait to see more of your reactions! Following you! :3

Thank you so much! Sometimes I feel discouraged that my theories and ideas are very wrong, and it’s hard putting them out there because you all know the answers already. So I’m just potentially looking like a dummy until I find out for myself 😛 It’s definitely been an interesting experience so far!

anonymous asked:

I love how Rapunzel is having her struggles (obviously I love that the other characters aren't perfect and need to learn, but especially Rapunzel) because sometimes characters who are more optimistic and happy are portrayed as always happy and perfect. I love that she obviously has her ups and downs, but still is optimistic. Oh god, I just love this show. (And we're only a quarter of the way through Season 1!!!!)

I adore Rapunzel’s struggles, too. And people don’t seem to realize how much of a brave face she puts on. She doesn’t want to burden people with her troubles, because what’s the point of making someone else hurt if there’s nothing they can do to help you?

I’m really looking forward to more nightmares, and a continuation of the main plot, to see more character development, and more of how she copes and learns to let others in when she’s stressing.

Because believe me, it bugs me no end that she hasn’t actually explained to Eugene why she turned down the proposal. She asked for his patience, and he offered his understanding, but in a, “I can see that you need space and time,” kind of way. I mean, he literally said, “I still don’t understand why you said no,” and it breaks my heart that she doesn’t feel like she can tell him outright. She just doesn’t want to hurt him, doesn’t want to admit that yes, he’s her dream, but he’s not all that she wants. She doesn’t want to make him feel inadequate. But with as head-over-heels in love with that woman as Eugene Fitzherbert is, we all know he’ll totally get it. He’s not stupid. He’ll be able to realize and understand that she wants the freedom he’s had his whole life, that her wanderlust hasn’t been sated. And he’ll stick with her through it all.

I think one of the reasons I appreciate Frank so much is that he SEES Karen.

Matt and Foggy are great guys and really do love Karen, but they never seem to notice her struggling. Last season Karen was kidnapped, almost murderered, shot a man, and dumped his body, and nobody noticed. Yes, Matt knew she was anxious and upset, but he never really followed up on it and probably had NO clue just how traumatic her previous evening was.

Karen has been through so much shit in this show. Not only does she have a mysterious dark past, but simply through seasons 1 and 2 she’s been kidnapped, threatened, and almost killed multiple times. And she does it all on her own.

Don’t get me wrong, I am so grateful that for once the “damsel” saves herself and relies on herself. But this show takes that to a whole other level, where everyone internalizes the fuck out of their grief and trauma and cries alone in the shower. I want to see these people rely on one another a little more. To share their pain, to trust each other and be honest. To at least know what’s going on in each other’s lives.

So here comes Frank Castle, who is so honest what he says disturbs people. And he SEES Karen. He knows she’s struggling, knows she has a dark past. She never told him that she killed a man before, but he’s so intuitive he probably picked that up himself by the way she holds a gun and the look in her eye when she points it at him. He can “read her soul” as his commander said. Frank acknowledges that Karen has been through shit and has SEEN her go through shit. And they bond with their mutual traumas (although they never discuss Karen’s past).

It’s just a huge relief that for once there is someone else around Karen that doesn’t think she’s just going to work and then going home all safe and sound. Who knows she’s constantly working and investigating and getting into dangerous shit. He pays attention to her in ways that Foggy and Matt simply don’t (despite caring deeply for her).


So with Skam ending I decided to go back and watch from the start. I’m only partway through Season 1 and I’m so amazed with the actors, the characters, the settings and basically the whole show.

It’s not overdone yet it’s so captivating and interesting. The show doesn’t overdo the dramatics like so many other tv shows and movies. Instead it shows us normal everyday things. Things we encounter in our own lives. The characters are so deeply flawed and none of them are made to seem above the others. Unless of course that is how the main sees them.

What I find the most amazing is the ability of the creators - the camera men, directors, Julie, etc - to so effectively show us what the main is feeling or seeing. Going from watching Isak’s season where Jonas seems like the best person in the world and the most understanding friend, to Eva’s POV where he isn’t trusted and seems almost mean was quite a shock to the system. Yet I am amazed by it. The characters are so different to the 2D characters we see in most tv shows.

Skam is so intriguing, thought provoking, and also entertaining. The interactive nature, allowing us to see through the characters eyes, getting updates frequently, it’s all amazing.

So thank you Julie.
Thank you Mari.
Thank you to the actors.
Thank you to the editors.
Thank you nrk.
Thank you to the characters.
Thank you to the fans who translated the show.
And finally thank you to us. The viewers.

The show may have ended but we are still here and so are Eva, Isak, Jonas, Noora, Sana, Vilde, Chris, Even, Mahdi, Magnus, Yousef, Elias, Mutta, Adam, Mikael and even the Penetrators and the Pepsi Max girls. It hasn’t really ended cause we’re all still trying ti survive school.

what do u mean there are seasons 5-10 of doctor who?? umm obviously it ended after the best 4 seasons ever? 11th and 12th doctor whom????

I'm only halfway through season 1 but i'd like to offer a constructive criticism: agatha (you) looks really pretty with things (bows, etc.) in her (your) hair and it should happen more often. Also!! I saw you had a chewy necklace in one and an autistic pride in another and !!!! i love it when i see other autistic characters/people in media because finally!!! I can relate

i love u !!! expect to see more things in my hair then bc i really like the way i look with them :D

don’t throw lines like

  • ” I just noticed you don’t smile too much.”
  • ” With or without your speed, you’re still you, Barry.”
  • ”What if i went with you?”
  • ”I already lost somebody I cared about in this building. I can’t do it                         again.”
  • ”No don’t come for me! Stay away!”
  • “We’re getting her back.” 
  • ”Do whatever you want to me. But leave him alone!”
  • ”You’re doing that biting your lower lip thing that you do when                              something’s bothering you.”
  • ” We’re quite the pair, Mr. Allen”  - ” Yes we are, Dr.Snow.”
  • “You look really nice.”
  • “Will you stay with me until I fall asleep?”
  • ”Time for me to move on. Find someone new to be crazy about.”

at me, and expect me to not ship it.

anonymous asked:

Why was Clary more affected by Jocelyn being kidnapped than by her death? her missing was adressed through whole season 1,but her death only in 1 episode

I think during season 1 Clary was still really attached to her mother and still had the mundane mindset of showing emotions. Whereas when Jocelyn died Clary had become more independent and had start to develop the shadowhunter repressing emotion thing

I Would Trust Delphine With My Life

“You do things without my consent.”

That line really struck me in the last episode. Partially because it’s true of Delphine and Cosima’s relationship but also because it’s true of Cosima’s relationship with PT and the rest of the Neos as a whole. So what makes Delphine different than them? Delphine fights for Cosima and her sisters, that’s been her only motivation since halfway through season 1. The Neos have only ever sought to use the Leda sisters for their own gain. But beyond that Delphine has given herself to Cosima, she told her “You have me”. Both parties have entrusted their lives to the other. But unfortunately there is sometimes miscommunication involved.

You still don’t trust Delphine? Go back and watch the season 3 finale. My girl literally gave up everything for the clones.
