Hands down the best thing of Sense8 are the relationship. I mean, how beautiful and pure and heartwarming is to see so many relationship based on trust, respect and love? You see Nomi & Amanita, or Lito & Hernando & Dani, or Wolfie & Felix, Capheus with his family and Jela… You also see two major love story bloom with Riley & Will and Kala & Wolfie, with their own time, their own peace, their own problems and in all of this it’s all a big family when everyone loves and respects each other and it’s just sO BEAUTIFUL.. GIVE ME MORE

[Weiss] So, uh, I have 106 hours played right now. This is why I get flustered when someone else picks Mercy on an attack map - I literally don’t knoW WHAT ELSE TO PICK

But like, why they gotta follow an episode that ends with such a huge CS moment with a Zelena centric??  Like, does anyone really care??  I don’t really care about seeing Zelena vs. the Black Fairy.  It feels like a shitty attempt to suddenly make her seem important when she’s been practically nonexistent all season.  I mean, Zelena’s a fine character and all, but she’s not that important. Certainly not important enough to suddenly warrant her own centric out of nowhere.

I’m just saying, we’d better get some good CS shit amongst all the Zelena crap.  My vote is for them waking up in bed together after a nice long night of celebrating their official engagement before all the bullshit starts.  I’d also be down for them trying to plan some wedding details.  Ooooh!  How about they go to town hall and actually try to get married without anyone really knowing, and her parents find out and bust down the door like “OH FUCK NO, YOU AIN’T GETTING MARRIED LIKE THIS!!”  Just give me some quality shit like that and I’ll be satisfied, despite them cramming in a random-ass Zelena centric two episodes before the CS wedding.

tfw Zylbrad says "There's actually some skill to Mercy. I'm really confused right now" and like, what? Of course there is. Holding down M1 isn't the important part to play a good Mercy, unlike most DPS, where aiming/killing is the main goal. Mercy is about the timing, appropriate safe v. risky positioning, and juggling a bunch of lives. Sure, getting the healing beam to lock on isn't difficult, but effectively managing the other stuff takes a lot of big picture game sense + awareness.

(So I completely adore you and your blog) I was wondering what's the badge shot? And why use it special? You light up my life by the way

if you’re referring to “THAT SHIT WITH THE BADGE” mentioned in this post then buckle up friend, because the only thing I love more than the badge shot is talking about the badge shot!

The Badge Shot happens around half way through the Dean/Aaron pub scene (in 8.13 “Everybody Hates Hitler” just in case you’re not completely obsessed with this scene like I am) and it looks like this: 

that’s the entirety of the badge shot. the whole thing. but this scene is unbelievable and this shot is the crowning fucking glory.

how many times do you think Dean Winchester has flashed an FBI badge? hundreds of times? THOUSANDS??? and it’s never a Thing. sometimes we see it close up when he shoves it all up in someone’s face, but usually it’s just bish bash bosh badge, put it away, move on. but then there’s THIS, a shot which turns up in the middle of a scene in which Dean is hit on by a dude and DOES NOT SHOOT HIM DOWN.

so Aaron is being cute as shit and telling Dean he thought they had a little eye magic, shared a moment – and Dean realises what’s happening, sloooowly reaches out, pulls the badge towards himself, and closes it. and this stuck out to me from the minute I saw this episode at arse o’clock in the morning on a shitty jumpy livestream. I was WAITING for a gif of him closing his badge to show up. because it’s not just Dean closing a fake FBI badge. that fake FBI badge is Dean’s hunting persona. that fake FBI badge is hunting, full stop. it’s monsters and death and fucking Nazi necromancers but, most importantly, it’s LYING. it’s symbolic of Dean lying, putting on a front, being someone he’s not.

Dean closing that badge in the slowest, most deliberate way anyone has ever closed a badge is Dean consciously choosing to approach this as DEAN, not Agent Bolan (and don’t even get me started on that name choice). this is Dean realising he’s being hit on by a guy and choosing to be HONEST, choosing to be HIMSELF, and to not put on the hypermasculine alpha male hunter front that he usually falls back on.

if he’d just put the badge away — no muss, no fuss, no drawing attention to it — then it wouldn’t mean anything. without this shot, FBI Dean could have said “yeah okay, but no, no moment, this is a federal investigation”, shot Aaron down, left the pub and it would have been 100% believable. but we got this shot. we got Dean Winchester stuttering and blushing and fidgeting with his badge all the way through ”yeah okay, but no, no moment, this is a federal investigation” and the subsequent flirting, fluster, minor panicking, “oh my god what am I doing???”, foot-in-mouthing and bumping into tables is ALL DEAN.

and there’s nothing special about Dean being himself (he’s himself 90% of the time) except for the fact he could have been DONE with this conversation in 1/3 of the time if he’d just stuck to the script, but he CHOOSES NOT TO. it’s ALL ABOUT THE CHOOSING. it’s about Dean DECIDING TO STICK AROUND AND LET A DUDE FLIRT WITH HIM JUST TO SEE WHERE IT GOES. (and, arguably, if closing the badge so deliberately symbolises Dean being honest, but he keeps up the FBI cover then… I wonder… what he could be being honest about…)

if Aaron hadn’t back-pedalled after Dean’s reaction to “is that supposed to make you less interesting?” then you can fucking BET they would have ended up getting cute awkward drinks later and probably having a cute awkward makeout sesh in the car. I mean, if Aaron wasn’t actually tailing Dean and didn’t have a huge golem, but whatever.

(HONESTLY THOUGH, Dean’s reaction to “is that supposed to make you less interesting?” is surprise and poorly concealed interest, so of course Aaron is thinking “oh shit this wasn’t supposed to WORK” and aborts mission pronto and, seriously, Dean’s facial expressions are INCREDIBLE. you can literally SEE him thinking “oh god, what am I DOING, I actually almost WENT FOR THAT, get outta here, Winchester” and it’s superb. he even does one of those calming hand movement things. I can’t believe this scene is real.) 

and, I mean, everything is open to interpretation, but how you can read this as anything other than “Dean gets hit on by a cute guy and is really flattered and flustered and into it and decides to test the water re: burgeoning sexuality in a safe controlled environment and then gets cold feet” and still have it make sense is beyond me.

I just wanted to say that it really depends on the person, I'm going deaf in one ear so I'm technically hearing impaired (which is a correct medical term to use) a bit rude of the Anon to say that everyone hoh as well as deaf doesn't like being referred to as hearing impaired, either way I love your blog and the fact that you give the characters so many interesting traits! ❤️

I’m… going to stay neutral on this since I am neither deaf nor hoh. Different people have different definitions of what is and isn’t acceptable and I’d rather just play it safe. Thank you thought!

Can we talk about nacho? He stepped when we needed him most (with all of the injuries to our defense) and he did so well and I'm so proud of him and it just shows how ready he is to be the starting CB (and captain eventually ofc)

After tonight’s game, I am convinced that Nacho will be Sergio’s successor. He’s quick, confident, and really freaking intelligent. He always shows up when we need him most and commands the field like he’s been playing for a decade. He makes it looks easy and effortless and for that I thank him. I feel safe when he’s playing, and that is rare with our defense. I haven’t felt this safe since Canna played for us. And he’s very calm and understands his teammates very well, the perfect qualifications for a captain. I love Nacho!!

I mean I don’t hate my art. I’m proud of where I’ve gotten with it!

I just look at it and I’m like… I could be doing better than this. I need to do more with backgrounds. I need to change up the poses and get more expressive. I need to have more control over my drawing process. I need to do color and value studies. I need to actually think about what I’m trying to make.

A few years ago I was really pushing myself to learn digital painting, trying new techniques, checking for consistency, drawing more landscapes and settings… I guess I quit doing that because I have less time to draw now. Now I play it safe with routine doodles that I know will come out okay in an hour or so.

I just look at the kinds of things my idols do, and what’s most frustrating is knowing that if I worked harder I could be doing those things too.

Hey, I was just diagnosed with gad. But I haven't had a check up in about a year and my head keeps tell me I have heart disease. My mom says it's the gad. But I can't stop thinking I have a heart disease. I donno if you can help me I just wanted to tell someone. I'm gonna talk to my therapist next week. Just it's kinda eating at me.

Hi, I have GAD so let me give you some helpful tips!!

99% of the time it’s your GAD. GAD is awful, it’s gonna tell you that you have cancer, that your lungs are collapsing, that you’re having a heart attack when you’re not. And I’ve spoken to a few doctors about this and they all agree that it’s really hard to determine if these symptoms are real or if it’s just your GAD, you know? Your brain can be so tricky. As my mom says, play it safe. Get it checked anyway. When I was experiencing numbness in my arm at night, my doctor said hey, I’m sending you to a heart specialist so we can get it checked out just to be safe. It’s ok to get something checked out sometimes.

Because the benefits are 1. You can double check and rule out if you really do have something going on, and 2. You can ease your anxiety by knowing you’re ok and that nothing’s wrong.

I know you might not always be able to do this and some people aren’t able to. But if it’s eating at you and making it hard to function, like I’ve had happen to me on occasion, go see a doctor asap and ease your worries. There’s a big chance you’re absolutely fine, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry! I’ve found lumps, I’ve panicked over them, gotten them checked to see if they were safe. In all honesty it’s a good thing!! It’s good to double check and make sure everything’s working normally. But if this is something that’s happening frequently, all the time, then I think it’s important to consult your therapist about it and try learn the techniques they teach you to get your anxiety under control.

So in short, if something is really bothering you, it’s ok to bring it up to a doctor and double check. But also be sure to let your therapist know about this, ask them what you can do to stop this frequent worrying, and follow their advice. Overall it’s important to talk to your therapist about this because they’re the one able to give you the tools you need to ultimately overcome this. And yes, there will be times this will happen all over again. I used to be scared I had cancer, I would have constant anxiety about it for months and months. Then I was ok. Then my anxiety would fixate on another fear, and so on. It’s an endless cycle, but it’s good to learn how to put a stop to it for awhile. Sometimes your techniques don’t work anymore, and that’s when you let your therapist know.

Sorry for rambling so much, it’s just GAD is something I’ve had since I was a little girl and I know exactly what it’s like firsthand so I’d say it’s a subject I’m 100% confident in giving advice in. If you have any other questions or concerns you’re always welcome to contact me!

Takiya wanting fafnir to give him a ride later on as he gets used to faf's dragon form. Both of them just flying around together.

fafnir “dragon who hates all humans and thinks they are a waste of time” letting takiya ride on him goodbye–


anyway takiya really enjoys it and tells fafnir that he’s incredible to which, of course, he gets no response (but fafnir is mentally screaming) and and and later on during the trip takiya falls asleep and when fafnir asks him if he’s ready to go home he notices he’s asleep; fafnir scoffs and silently flies him back home, gently transforms back into a human, being very careful with takiya. he then picks takiya up and takes him inside, again gently and carefully, and places him on the futon and pulls the covers up. fafnir grumbles something to himself, like “foolish human”, and then goes back to playing video games.


when takiya wakes up and sees himself at home safe and sound, wrapped up in the covers, he sleepily looks up to see fafnir’s back, as he’s at the computer playing video games. takiya is overwhelmed with a sense of love and adoration for the dragon, and whispers “thank you”; fafnir huffs in response and takiya smiles to himself. he really is a tsundere, he thinks.

Confessions in the Blackwall tag about how they left him for “honorable” Cullen

I was just playing dragon age again and when you’re at the meeting before the battle of Ostagar, Cailan specifically requests you and Alistair go to light the beacon.

He’s trying to keep his brother safe and if that isn’t the sweetest thing ever you can just leave.

Can I be completely honest about something? I absolutely DO NOT want to see Tom play Bond. I am without a doubt, 100% against the idea. It's not that I think he's a bad actor, because obviously I don't(since I'm a fan). But I really don't feel that he is best suited for that role. Now, he would make an EXCELLENT Bond villain. But just not Bond. I will be in the corner preparing to have things thrown at me.

You’re safe here.

I have absolutely zero interest in him playing Bond.  Actually, probably more like negative interest.  It has no attraction for me whatsoever.  Never has, probably never will.  There is nothing I find appealing about the films.  Maybe I’m just completely missing the point of them, but I can’t seem to suspend disbelief in order to enjoy them.  I suppose if they were framed in a sort of AU style, like Marvel, it might be different for me.  But I’m under the impression that is not the conceit of the Bond universe. Also, I don’t see much to admire about the character himself and I don’t like how the women are written and treated in general. Just…no.  

I think the only challenge for him would be the physical aspect.  Otherwise, there just isn’t much there to capture his ADD curious mind.  Now, I have no doubt in his ability to make the process enjoyable for himself.  However, I do not think he would find the role to be terribly stimulating or intellectually gratifying.  That doesn’t mean he wouldn’t have fun or that it wouldn’t be any work for him or anything like that, so all the Bond supporters need not respond in argument. I am not bashing the franchise.  I am simply saying that it is not a role with the transformative aspect that generally appeals to him.  

Being Bond would bring him two things: greater worldwide recognition (which has nothing to do with personal satisfaction in his craft at the end of the day) and a lot of money (he’s already a millionaire).  If that’s what he most desires, then go for it.  But I don’t think it is.  Call me crazy.  Would he flat out say NO to a legit offer from The Powers That Be?  Probably not.  

Should he be given the role, he would be great, I’m sure.  But, yes.  No, thank you.  

There are people here who are very hungry for him to be “A List” or whatever the current term is.  They want him to be a household name.  They are very invested in the playing of the game.  They want him to go to this function or that function.  They want him to work with this director or that director.  They want him to be seen with this person or that person.  His career as a commodity is a fascination for them.  

I’m not here for that.  I want him to be happy, I want him to be proud and satisfied with his work, I want him to be respected by knowledgable peers, I want him to put his head on the pillow at night and feel like his efforts are worthwhile.  If that happens, I don’t care if he ever wears another Gucci suit on a red carpet again.  And if all that happens along with playing Bond, that’s completely fine.

First of all as a Cser I love how fair you are to Csers in your metas and congratulate us when we get something good in reviews. I like to read a Neal essay on his suppose plan to end magic. The few sfers I found said it was a retcon and Csers feel it makes neal worse. I don't want to dig through post to find things negative about Cs. I was wondering if you could tell me your explanation

Thank you, GoodShipJollyRoger!Anon– I love my CS followers. You pose an interesting question about Neal and magic because Neal is a tricky character.

Own that ambiguity!

My short answer is:

  • Young Baelfire = Yes, destroy magic
  • Flashback Neal = No, that’s not cool, man
  • Corporate Neal = Maaaaaybe?
  • S3 Neal = Yes, if magical people agree (Note: this is hypothetical as post-Manhattan Neal never got a chance, alas)

Confused? Well, so am I … but let’s explore, shall we?
