Oh my goodness, I just realized something???

Dick Grayson is a safety net for everyone else in DC.

Allow me to explain:  

So everyone knows how Dick’s parents died: Tony Zucco was a rude jerkface who sabotaged the wires for the Flying Graysons’ trapeze act, the ropes snapped, they fell to their deaths right in front of poor baby Dick’s teeny little eight year-old eyes, we all know the story. But the thing about this situation is that most acrobats would use a safety net in case they fell. The Flying Graysons, however, chose to do that particular act without a net in order to create more excitement. So they died because there was no one to catch them. Dick’s family died because they had no safety net

Cut to a little over a decade later, and Dick is Nightwing. He’s been with Batman, he’s been a member of several teams, and he’s met so many other superheroes in the DC universe that practically everyone is a friend of Nightwing. He has helped nearly everybody at some point or other, so he’s known for lending a helping hand to anyone who asks. Out of all the many, many, many superheroes in the universe, Dick himself is known as the one any person can go to for help no matter what. There’s never any doubt when it comes to Dick. He will always and without question be there for anyone who needs him. He’s their rock. 

In fact, Dick is probably one of the only characters besides a few prominent heroes like Batman and Superman who everyone can rely on. Everyone has their own reputations, whether it be a good or a bad one. Bruce’s is being dark and broody, but Dick’s is being trustworthy. Everyone can vouch for him. Dick can always be trusted, no matter what. It even says it right here:

And in this panel too, Superman tells Dick that he is the single person who in every place in the multiverse can never be corrupted:

See? Dick is one of the only guys whom every single hero knows he/she can trust and that this is something that will never change. Because Dick is good. Dick will never let anyone down or betray them, it’s just not in his DNA. If anyone is ever in need of help, then you can bet your little tush that Dick Grayson will answer the call, no matter what it costs him. He saves everyone who needs it and is willing to catch them when they fall. Like a safety net. Dick catches people. That is his legacy. He couldn’t save his parents from hitting the ground, but you can trust that he will bust his butt and try his hardest to ensure that from now on he will keep that from happening to anyone else. 

And ever since the Flying Graysons fell, Dick kind of has a thing with falling. It’s a conquered fear, one of which he confronts every day as he soars above cities and saves those who can’t save themselves. But he can’t stand the thought of falling without a net to catch you, so subconsciously that is the role he fills. He has become a metaphor for DC’s safety net, as in he is the one character who everyone can trust to save them, whether they be civilians or other heroes. They can always trust that they can go to him for help when they need it, and Dick in turn will always be ready to save them. He is the one holding his arms out, ready to catch people when they fall and support them for as long as they need him to. He refuses to let anyone down. Dick is DC’s rock, the one column that will never topple over no matter how hard you try. He is a safety net, prepared to catch people when they fall and ready to help them to fly again. Dick’s parents had no safety net, so Dick is going to make sure no one else will have to be without one as long as he’s there. And that my friends, is my epiphany of the day. 

episode two :: Yuri realizes, suddenly and terribly, he might be a little bit in love.  


Victor doesn’t even try to go to sleep.  He just lays in bed with his laptop, watching the thirty-seven takes of Yuuri trying to get “hi, I’m Yuuri Katsuki, and I’m the Bachelor” out of his mouth.

Don’t they know who I am?” Yuuri slurs on screen.  

Yuuri, you have to put the champagne bottle down, you have to pretend to be sober,” Phichit says off camera, all authority gone from his voice.  He’s trying not to laugh.

Phichit,” Yuuri says, and he takes a big swig from the bottle, bubbles pouring down both sides of his lips. “You can’t tell me what to do.  I’m Yuuri Katsuki, and I’m the motherfucking Bachelor.

smol not so conventional note-taking tips.

* = methods that can work on computers/devices as well.

1. Split your pages into two columns. Write out your class notes in one column, and continue to do this with your notes. Then, when you’ve read over your notes, try to recall as much info from each page as possible and write it all out on the second column. I find that remembering things with no trigger (for example a question) makes it more likely to actually the remember the info on a test. Then, fill in the info you couldn’t remember, preferably in a different colour, and flashcard/summary foldable this info. This is based on my other post. *

2. If you need to understand how different concepts link together, don’t just put together a mind map with the concepts in front of you. If you want to do this in class, box different concepts/sub topics in random places across the page and just keep doing that.  Your boxes don’t need to be surgical precision neat, they can be weird squiggly kind of lines, it really doesn’t matter. Once you’re done with the lecture, try and remember as many of the boxes as possible (and again fill in the gaps and flashcard if you need to memorise it) and then link as you keep writing out the boxes. Guess what?! You’ve linked all of your stuff, and from memory too!! The boxes with the most links should be the focus of your revision later on. *

3. If you’re taking notes from a video, sure, write down the dialogue, but also do a quick sketch of the diagrams that go along with the dialogue, and draw arrows to indicate which goes with which for future reference. And then, to test yourself in a more visual kind of way, redraw the diagrams only and see if you can remember the info associated with it. That way, you’re not only presenting info in a different way but you’re also testing yourself on the info but in a more fun way. This could work really well with chem compounds, and bonus, you can even box certain components of the diagram to help test your knowledge on both the info associated with the diagram and the diagram itself! (If your diagrams are hella complex, print them out, or if you’re using a computer, just drag and drop and layer on some text boxes friend I got you) *

4. Use a multi-pen for class notes if you want to colour code but save time so you don’t fall behind during the class/lecture. (for all my handwriters, this one’s for you)

The Saints Row protagonist is a legitimately great character

A few years back, I wrote an article arguing that the concept of a videogame protagonist is a tricky storytelling challenge, since there’s an inherent conflict between the player’s own actions and what a writer might demand of a character. I used the now-classic example of Adam Jensen in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, who is largely an audience surrogate but will occasionally do something moronic in a cutscene and thus force the player to clean up his mess once they’ve regained control of him. This is still a problem I see a lot of games suffer with whenever they try to tell a decent story, but nobody was more surprised than me when I started playing through the Saints Row series and discovered that it might have one of the best compromises between characterisation and player agency I’ve ever seen in all my years of unhealthily obsessive gaming.

The boss of the Third Street Saints is a character with no canonically determined gender, sexuality, race or even voice. But their dialogue and general manner paints quite a vivid picture of a witty, confident and frequently psychotic individual. Their story is of a no-name street thug who rises through the ranks and ultimately seizes the presidency of the United States before having to fend off an alien invasion. But through it all they maintain a jovial, potentially amorous relationship with their lieutenants and display such enthusiasm towards violence and domination that it’s believable they’d insist on continuing to help out with the ground-level crime even once they’ve built the Saints up to the point that they command a fleet of laser-equipped VTOLs. In short, they’re a completely irredeemable bastard who still manages to be relatable because of their charisma and the fact that their behaviour lines up perfectly with how most players tend to react when dropped into a sandbox full of flamethrowers and dildo bats.

I think Saints Row as a franchise is deceptively clever in its design beneath all the manure-spraying and pop culture references, and how the protagonist is used throughout the overarching story is pretty damn unique. Most truly memorable game characters tend to be the people you meet as you steer your generic avatar around like Sheldon Cooper’s virtual presence device, whereas Saints Row is as much of a character piece about the Saints Boss as anything else. Saints Row 2 in particular managed some good tonal variety and established a level of customisation and open-ended design that ended up making me weirdly invested in the expansion of my criminal empire. Whether by intention or by accident, Volition hit some kind of magical sweet spot that gave players great freedom in how they expressed themselves while still presenting a memorable and almost worryingly relatable main character.

So am I saying that every game should embrace Saints Row’s very specific brand of protagonist? Absolutely not. But think of how many games settle for a bland, personality-free protagonist seemingly because the creators assume the audience won’t care, when giving players a character they can become attached to in their own way can help cultivate the sort of devoted following Saints Row has enjoyed. If I was feeling hyperbolic, I might even say that Saints Row is the RoboCop of videogames: an intelligent work of fiction that’s not afraid to revel in explosions and dick jokes.

And if you enjoyed this post, I have many other similarly fabulous game articles you might find pleasurable.

Discipline 101

So you have the ambition. You have all the answers. All you lack is the discipline.

Unsurprisingly, this is a problem most people have, so don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Tell me, do you have a concrete goal? Or is it something vague like, “Rule the world”, or “get rich” or “become famous”?

Usually those who lack discipline have a habit of getting ahead of themselves and they end up having all these fantastic goals without any knowledge of how to achieve them. They have big ambitions, but no clear plans, no visible steps, and no foundation to start their life on. It’s the equivalent of standing on one side of the river and being able to see the other side, but having no method of making it across.

It’s good to have a starting point, and know what you want in the end. But the path to earning what you desire isn’t pre-made for you. It’s up to you to lay every brick and measure everything out. In your life, you’re the architect, you’re the engineer, you’re the investor, you’re everything.

So the how do you get some discipline?  It’s simple: You need to know how you’re going to do something, before you set out to do it.

Step 1: Get Motivated

Make a list. And make sure you handwrite it. Two columns. Think about everything you have a problem with, all your interests and passions, and everything you have ever wanted in one column. In the other column, spend as much time as you need to come up with solutions to each issue/goal. Don’t write one side, without the other.

Spend a couple days looking at that list. Make it into a poster, use it as your phone background, it doesn’t matter as long as you make sure you see it every day until you feel something. I’m saying that incredibly vaguely because people are fueled by different emotions. For me, it was rage.

Every morning, I stared at that list of everything I’d ever wanted, every little problem that made my life miserable and I got furious. To see what my life revolved around so callously written on paper, and feeling so close yet so far, that drove me insane. My anger made my passion double, and nothing fuels discipline more than passion.

Step 2: Plan

Once you’ve gotten yourself suitably motivated to take charge of your life, don’t waste any time. Start by creating a plan. Now that you know what you want to do, figure out how to do it.

Create a timeline for the next year and then a looser version for the next ten years. It can sound daunting, but when you fall off track at some point (and I can guarantee, you will) you’re going to need something to point you in the right direction.

For your detailed, one year plan, make sure your goals are distributed into two categories: Short term and Long term.  

For your short term goals, list everything you want to achieve in that year and how exactly you’re going to do it.

For example,  if you want to lose weight, I don’t just want to see you write down “lose weight”. Tell me how. Tell me how much. Tell me by when. “Lose five pounds by October by going to the gym 4 days a week”, or “Cut down on eating X food so I can lose 5 pounds by October”, etc. Be specific.

For your long term goals, pick 3 things you want in general. The first thing should be something you can achieve in that year, and it should be the focus of your entire year. The second thing is something you don’t necessarily need, but it makes you happy anyways (like spending more time on a hobby, or saving money for a new designer bag, etc.). The third thing should be something that stays fairly consistent in every single ‘year-plan’ you have. Ultimately, it’s either your most important desire, or very close to it.

These long term goals will help you put together your 10 year plan, and create a better sense of direction in your life.

Step 3: Prioritize

Learn to prioritize these tasks and goals. Don’t go to sleep until you’ve felt like you’ve completed all your tasks for the day. Don’t give in to distractions and the illusion of “well-deserved fun”. Sure, going clubbing may seem fun on  Saturday, but it won’t be fun on Sunday night when you’re frantically writing a paper that’s due in two hours. There’s always time for fun later, there’s always another concert and another football game and another party. But some things have a greater impact on your life than just one night of “fun”.

I’m not saying become some kind of a workaholic. There’s always a time and a place for everything. If you try to follow your plan without any distractions or any fun, you’re going to get bored and then you’re start to hate your plan and your life and then it gets messy. Avoid all that by knowing when you’ve earned a break. It’s very important to discern when you can afford to step away from work to have fun with your friends and when going out is just going to distract you from an important deadline. 

Step 4: Act

Now, don’t just write these goals down and shove them in a dusty file on your desk. Keep them within arms reach. Look at them frequently. What I like to do is every morning, I write down a short term goal I have for that week/day/month and one of my long-term goals in my planner. It’s just a little reminder and keeps me focused throughout the day. I don’t feel like my day is complete or productive until I’ve had some progress on either the long term or short term goal.

Also, keep in mind that while planning is a great thing to do, don’t expect yourself to stick to every single detail of the plan. Life happens, and there are certain things you cannot control (although it wouldn’t hurt to try). Don’t be too hard on yourself if you find yourself unable to complete one of your goals for the day/week/month. It happens to everyone, we’re all human. What you need to focus on is the big picture and move on. Don’t waste precious time wallowing in past mistakes. Time doesn’t wait for anyone, least of all for you.

Step 5: Commit

Discipline doesn’t come from just being motivated or having a plan. It comes from consistency. Form productive habits, start efficient routines, and stick to them. For example, if you want to become a writer, make sure you write something, however small it is, everyday. One sentence, one paragraph, one page, the amount doesn’t matter. It’s important to understand that something, however small, is better than nothing. This constant dedication to your work will help you move one step closer to your goals.

The more you force yourself to stay in line when faced with temptation, the easier it will be every other time you are faced with the same challenge further down the line. Everyone forms habits. Just make sure they’re the right ones and you’d be shocked at how much your life could change.

Everything you need to become disciplined is inside of you. Everyone has the willpower and motivation. It’s just some people know what to do with it.

Just remember: Get motivated. Plan. Prioritize. Act. Commit

And the world is yours.

anonymous asked:

How does a team clinch a playoff spot? Does that mean even if they lose their remaining games they'll still make it?

okay, let me explain it on the example of Leafs or/and Capitals, I’m gonna try to make it as simple as possible, for those who don’t know the NHL well yet.


this is the Atlantic Division only; table of it

first three (3) teams of each division (amount of the teams in the divison doesn’t matter– it’s always three) automatically clinch a playoff spot. so let’s edit it.

as you can see, the Leafs are 4th, 3 points behind Bruins. a couple years ago it would end like this, no chance for the Leafs to get to the playoffs, of course if we’re talking about the season ending this soon.

however, we have Wild Card these years and this is where it gets more difficult. it really used to be simplier without it.

here’s Eastern Conference, all these teams except of the Islanders are in playoff position now. they’re also the only eastern teams to be so.

the Wild Card is basically (or almost literally) combination of two (2) best teams of the specific conference that have not enough points to be in top three in their own divisions. 

you can see all these teams are mixed, from two different divisions.

kinda tricky thing about this is that there could be 3 teams of Atlantic Division in the playoffs + 5 teams of Metropolitan Division (3 top of the division + 2 Wild Card teams), it literally happened last season, same with the Western Conference where there were only 3 Pacific Division teams in the playoffs. so yes, the Islanders and Bolts are direct, really serious enemies of the Leafs in the run for playoffs though they’re not playing in the same division.

but what if the Leafs end up having the same number of points at the end of the regular season, as the Islanders have? well, then that’s quite easy. or not. I’m gonna explain this on the Caps, which have the same amount of points as the Blue Jackets but are still listed as first in the division.

NHL deals with this following ways. 

(let’s say we’re/you’re rooting for the Capitals)

1. the first and most important thing you must look at, is the number of games played. 71 - 71. same. this doesn’t solve the problem, so here comes the next thing you look at. 

(if the Jackets played one less game, they would be listed first automatically)

2. you would think the second criterion is number of wins, right? well, not exactly… the W column stands for all wins overall- including shootouts, but that’s not the column we’re thinking about now. we’re looking at this one. ROW.

it literally says Regulation plus Overtime Wins. like I said, W is wins overall, but ROW is only number of games won in regulation time and overtime. as you can see, the Capitals have won 46 games overall this season so far, but 45 of them were won in regulation or overtime. that means they have only 1 game in shootouts this season. so shootouts are really not that important to the NHL. 

and as you can see, this number is the same with the two teams. again.

3. third and usually the final criterion is the number of points the Caps have earned in games against the Blue Jackets. so basically, it’s a thing about who has been better in the mini Caps-Jackets series of 4 games this season so far.  

the first game of this season the Capitals played against the Blue Jackets ended with regulation win of the Capitals, 3-2, so the score is ‘2 points - 0 points’ 

the second game they played ended with regulation win of the Capitals, 5-0. ‘4 points - 0 points’

that’s all they have played against each other this season. they’re playing 2 more games against each other until the end of the regular season– since they’re in the same division the number of games playing against each other is 4 per regular season.

so what’s the score in the mini series? 4-0 for the Capitals.

so this is finally the reason why they’re listed first in the battle of division title against the Blue Jackets.

4. but since we’ve come this far, let’s talk about the last criterion anyway. this one is simple. NHL literally describes it as ‘The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.’

now you have to look at these three columns.

the first one, GF, stands for Goals For so the number of all goals they have scored in this season. it includes shootouts goals, where one win in the shootouts = plus one goal. this column is tied, again.

the second one, GA, stands for Goals Against so the number of all pucks they have officialy let get past their goalie’s goaline. you can see that the Capitals have been less time got scored at than the Jackets. 

the third one, DIFF, goal differential is always and simply this: GF - GA = DIFF.

so 228 minus 159 is 69, that’s the Capitals’ DIFF; while 228 minus 164 is 64, that’s the Blue Jackets’ DIFF. 

(DIFF can be totally below 0, Avalanche’s -96 is the worst DIFF in the NHL currently, while Capitals’ +69 is the best.)

the Capitals have this number higher than the Jackets, so even if they have lost one of the games against the Jackets in regulation (let’s ignore the GF/GA change), and the score in the mini series would be ‘4 points - 4 points’, the Capitals would still be listed first in the division, because of the DIFF.

oohhhh and one thing. what about the x next to the names of the teams?

  • the x next to a team means the team will 100% get to the playoffs, even if they/it lose every single remaining regular season game, even if their divisional opponents win every single remaining regular season game.
  • the y next to a team will soon appear to a team that will 100% end the regular season with the Divisional Title– will 100% end first in its division.
  • the z next to a team will soon appear to a team that will 100% end the regular season with 1st place in its conference.
  • the p next to a team will soon appear to a team that will 100% end the regular season with 1st place in the entire league. there’s an actual trophy for it, called Presidents’ Trophy. the latest winner of it, for the 2015-16 season were the Capitals.

okay, I really enjoyed writing this, more than I expected and I hope the anon, and so you others, find this at least a bit helpful.

For my fifty-sixth Evangelion book review, here is Evangelion Shin Gekijouban: Q E-conte Shuu (Evangelion New Theatrical Edition: Q Storyboards Collection), published by Groundworks.  This is a new book that just came out this week, and it is devoted to storyboards for the Evangelion: 3.0 movie.  (If you also want to see storyboards for the Evangelion: 1.0 and 2.0 movies, check out my fifty-fourth and fifty-fifth book reviews.  Or for storyboards from the original Evangelion TV series, take a look at my twenty-seventh review!)

This book is not available in English or French, but there are plenty of pictures.  It also has a removable dust jacket, however there isn’t any alternate cover art hidden underneath.  But that’s okay, because the book has plenty of interesting stuff inside, such as this lovely scene when Shinji sees Kaworu playing the piano:


The column on the left is for dialogue (or other sometimes other audio for the scene), the column in the middle is rough sketches of the visuals for the scene, and the column on the right has additional instructions such as camera directions.  However, as you can see above, sometimes the visuals are just too big to be contained in only one column… the topmost shot of Kaworu at the piano was so large that it extended into the left and right columns!

Keep reading for the rest of the book review, plus a few more pictures!

A rambly random drabble thing for 8 Days a Week. I had this going on in my mind for a phase further into the story but why wait when I can write it now while procrastinating right 


Otabek is tired.

Otabek has been tired ever since he moved to Russia. It’s never been the need to sleep it off or to go on a long vacation and watch the sunset by the beach. It’s been a slow decay; but a steady process, every passing day adding one more crack to one of his inner columns, the ones that help him stand up straight after a long day. And his days have been long. Endless. 

Otabek is used to inner cracks and the way the world seems slightly surreal when he is smack dab in the middle of a shitstorm. He is used to patching the cracks up as he goes, however shabby his plaster work may be. It keeps him going. It works; it makes him show up the next day, when he has gone home dead in the middle of the night, feeling like his limbs are trying to tear themselves away from him. Physical exhaustion is easy. The rest, that he cannot fix. And he has been sure that this was it; that this was how the rest of his short life would go until one day someone put a knife in his gut or a bullet in his head. He didn’t expect to experience the next level of fatigue and welcome it so eagerly.

Caring is exhausting, Otabek finds. A whole new level of exhausting… It’s a double-edged knife, cutting him deep, healing him fast. Yuri cannot restore his trembling core for he is the reason why Otabek is so tired, all day, every day.

It’s a new sensation to worry about someone else. Otabek is awake even when he is sleeping, his rough fingers are ready to reach the trigger any moment, just in case. He listens to everything, he watches everyone, he calculates every step and the next. Having his priorities shaken and rebuilt has sharpened his senses; he cannot let his guard down.

The only time Yuri leaves no room to other thoughts in his head is when he is seducing Otabek like sin, burning him from inside out; a calamity of temptation. Otabek knows he is hell-bound but Yuri is the devil and the angel, he is the scorch and the sooth, his undoing and his only blessing. Otabek loses his mind, buried deep in Yuri, making him cry out his name over and over like a forgotten spell, air getting too hot around them to breathe easily. Those moments feel like eternity, lasting hours and yet, they are over within a hummingbird’s bat of wings, leaving Otabek panting and hazy like he came off a rollercoaster. Worries and plans settle back into his mind, into their dark familiar corners where they spread like spider webs. He has so much to think about so Yuri will never even imagine them happening. It’s a weight on his shoulders, making him want to stretch and crack his joints but he never has the space for it, he has worlds to carry. May Hell be upon him if he stumbles.

He patches the cracks up as he goes, he carries on.

Cheery dropped down from the coach. Her leather skirt flapped in the wind.
As one dwarf, the column swiveled to stare at her. Their leader went pop-eyed.
B’dan? K’raa! D’kraga ‘ha’ak!”
Vimes saw the expression that appeared on Cheery’s small round face.
Above him there was a clunk as Detritus rested the loaded Piecemaker on the edge of the coach.
“I know dat word he said to her,” he announced to the world. “It is not a good word. I do not want to hear dat word again.”

Summary: Stiles & Y/N find themselves in a train station, erased from their friend’s memories

Requested: no

Pairing: Stiles & Y/N 

Warning: no, mature language & themes throughou

 Masterlist

“Ryan, run!” Y/N grabbed her little brother’s wrist and pulled him deeper into the woods. Struggling to keep up with his older sister, the toddler tripped over his own two feet causing her to lift him up and run as fast as she could.

She had seen them. The wind had picked up and a trail of leaves had started to dance around behind them. She knew they were coming for her. Ryan wrapped his arms around his sister’s neck as he let out muffled sobs. He was scared and so was Y/N.

Jumping over a log that was in her way, she glanced over her shoulder to see if they were still being chased. Adrenaline coursed through her veins as she saw the black horse approaching them at a rapid pace. Sprinting as fast as she could, she made her way down to the creek.

“Ryan, you have to listen to me.” She set him down.
