nothing will change about that

the only thing my little brother said to me after I came out to him was “it doesn’t matter because no one wants to date you anyway” and it was honestly the best possible way to handle that situation and it showed how nothing had changed between us and I think about that a lot

I’ve honestly never been a big Chris x Eva fan, but seriously? Chris basically told William that he was pretty sure he was in love with Eva, and now, after he saw Emma for the first time he suddenly forgot about Eva. Where’s his charcter development? According to Julie he’s the same person that he was at the beggining of the show, nothing changed. We deserved to know more about him, and the fact that Julie totally ignored his character fucking sucks 

Roller rinks built in the early 2000’s are liminal spaces.
Nothing about them, not even the oddly patterned carpet, has changed since they were built.

You can walk into one at 10 in the morning. Skate for a few minutes and leave as the sun is setting.

The music that is played never changes. You don’t know how many times you’ve heard this song but it easily outnumbers the number of times that are possible.

The birthday corner is always empty. A layer of dust has settled over the tables. No one has set foot in the birthday corner for far too long.

There is a kids cartoon episode playing on the far wall. You are almost certain that that cartoon has been discontinued for well over 10 years.

The lights projected on the floor are swirling in a pattern. That pattern is hypnotizing. You stop skating. There is nobody else on the rink to tell you to keep moving.

The arcade is in a room that shouldn’t exist. This building is far too small for an arcade of this size to fit.

what the kids would be doing if they actually went to highschool

john is a theater kid, but not a Theater Kid - he’s just there to get his elective credit filled out and get training for a career in showbiz. he does standup at the local theater. carries out an eight-week prank war against the mean teachers under the alias “mr. egg”

rose runs the school newspaper and has at least 3 private writing blogs. also started her own poetry magazine for the nsfw 8000-word sapphic monologues the school wouldn’t let her publish and called it “Much Done About Nothings” to spite censorship. passes 5 AP classes without showing up once.

dave has his own radio show and does morning announcements; later on, after around junior year, he starts dj’ing at parties and cafes. takes dance classes to kill time after school and ends up teaching beginner’s hip-hop to freshmen; joins manga club ironically but ends up bonding with a lot of the people there

jade starts a gardening club and crowdfunds solar panels for the greenhouse; takes an all-AP roster and somehow has hours to spare. 4 years on colorguard, 3 years of honor roll. is on a first name basis with literally every teacher, that one kid who’s always down to give you a ride (i.e. The Best Kid)

[TRANS] SUGA's message on So Far Away

The feeling after collaborating with the members for the last song of Agust D mixtape “so far away” is different.
It feels like this version’s atmosphere was more similar to the style I wanted originally.

The mixtape was released after many many many modifications/revisions but i didn’t do a proper check on the lyrics and the mistake of the lyrics was only realised long after it dropped. “don’t fall away” was written as “don’t far away” and since it’s too late to change so nothing could be done about it hahaha. It was the first mixtape so it was really chaotic haha This version is not the wrong lyrics but rather the original one. It’s a relief to be able to let everyone know the original lyrics so please enjoy :)

4th Anniversary Festa has ended and see you again on the 5th Anniversary Festa!
Happy 4th year anniversary ARMY :)

a-not-so-clever-man  asked:

Someone important to me believes that something I wrote is based off of them and it as been hurting our relationship, how do I get them to know that it's not them?

I don’t know. I don’t think it’s possible to persuade people that you didn’t write about them. There is one long-ago short story of mine in which every former girlfriend of mine saw herself reflected, and each of them made a point of telling me that she had read it (I think they were flattered) and obviously the person in it was her, and I realised that nothing I could ever say about the story would change anybody’s mind. 

That’s because it’s almost impossible to explain to anybody who hasn’t done it that the way we make fiction is a sort of composting process in which things we see and feel and experience and think and imagine are put into our minds and then rot down into a black compost, in which new things grow. Or for that matter that you can steal the way that one person plays with their hair and the way another person sighs and always turns up late and grow a third person who isn’t either of them out of it.

So you can tell them it’s not them in your fiction. But they will still believe what they will. Perhaps instead you should just work on the relationship, and if they are worried about issues of privacy (or whatever) being compromised by what you write, tell them you must have done it without realising, and will do your best to make sure they aren’t in any more stories of yours, even unwittingly. 

I hope this helps. (You will probably find a lot more wisdom than this in the comments or the reblogs.)

Sometimes it makes things hard, but Kuroo doesn’t really mind

One of the reasons Supergirl struggled all season is because they failed to juggle far more plot lines than they could handle. And this all came to a head in the finale, because despite all of these plot lines basically none of them paid off.

Jeremiah Danvers and Cadmus? No payoff there. We haven’t seen him since he fought with Hank Henshaw and the only time anyone seems to remember him is in the face of Lillian Luthor.

Speaking of Lillian Luthor? What about the whole Cadmus story line? Not resolved; she still runs Cadmus and it’ll likely still be a problem. But what about her and Lena? Okay, so they worked together to make the lead thing. But we don’t see them at all beyond this. Lena still doesn’t like her (rightfully so) and Lillian really didn’t cause any problems so nothing really came out of them in this finale.

But what about Lena? Like I said, there really was no payoff with her mother. No payoff with Rhea because they didn’t interact all episode. And her friendship with Kara/Supergirl didn’t really have a payoff either. They barely interact in the episode. You can’t even say that it paid off because she made Supergirl that remote. Because A) That could’ve just as easily been Winn’s doing and B) That seemed to more so come from a place of distrusting her mother.

So what about Winn? He helps, but does he really have his own plot? No. His biggest plot all season was Lyra and even though she got a mention this episode, she has been MIA for several.

Well, what about James? If you think James has had any sort of payoff all season, I could laugh at you. He was almost entirely absent from the finale. He’s barely been present for a plot all season to even have a payoff. The whole Guardian plot? I honestly don’t understand at this point. At the beginning, this was a big thing he really wanted to do. But these last few episodes it seems like they’re almost trying to undo this whole plot.

What about J’onn? Honestly, his story arc this season with M’gann might actually be the only one with a payoff. He’s happy to see her again, and he is not at all put off by the white martians she brings to help.

Cat Grant? Honestly, her return was one of the biggest things carrying these last two episodes. Her return was great and helpful to the plot, but because she has been gone it’s not like we’ve been following an arc of hers all season, waiting to see a payoff with her.

Alex? Alex had almost no impact in the finale. Honestly, had she not been in it nothing would’ve changed. And what about her big arcs this season? Her dad and Cadmus? All we got out of that was her distrust of Lillian Luthor which really didn’t affect anything. And Sanvers? They should have left it at “I hope so”. Sure that would’ve been a little disappointing for shippers but Alex’s proposal takes away from her whole arc this season with Maggie. Alex was really learning to grow into herself through this relationship and now it just feels disjointed with a rushed proposal that really doesn’t even make sense. They just said “I love you” like two episodes ago where not much time has passed.

But the lack of payoff that pisses me off the most has to do with Mon-El and Kara. And this really has nothing to do with shipping.

Do you like Mon-El? Then you should probably be pissed that they gave you so much of him all season only to take him away. Don’t like Mon-El? Even if you’re happy he’s gone, you should still be pissed that they spent so much time on him this season for him to wind up completely gone anyway.

So with him now gone, that begs the question of whether or not the entire Daxam plot had any payoff and the answer is no. With them being off of Earth for good, they won’t directly affect the show going forward.

As for indirectly? Mon-El is arguably the only Daxamite that had any impact on every other character, but I don’t think anyone expects Alex or James or Winn to be affected by him being gone.

The only person he was ever intended to impact was Kara. And for what? The purpose of breaking her? People may argue that he developed through Kara all season. But Kara didn’t develop through him all season and guess what? She’s the goddamn protagonist and he’s gone now anyway. So her lack of development all season really shines now.

The scene where Mon-El leaves is all about how “no matter where he ends up he’ll be better because of her”.

And I think that sums up the season pretty well. It’s all about him, not Kara. You can argue that he didn’t grow at all anyway, and really almost none of the characters have. And even if all of that were true, he’s gone anyway so it doesn’t matter. Just like how pretty much every plot of this season doesn’t matter because none of them paid off in anyway.

Danny told me that Carmilla wants to eat me, and I was like, “Yeah, she’s a vampire, obviously she wants to eat me!” But Danny was like, “No, she wants to eat you.” And I’m like, “Yeah, Danny, I know, she’s a vampire.” I just don’t understand it.
